DIVINE INTERVENTION

Divine-Intervention-Wordle divine-intervention_00006579

I know I need to share this. Because, I was made to obey GOD. But, I need to be upfront and tell you, this is tough for me. Thankful for His amazing and unending Grace. It ends for those who are disobedient and blatantly rebellious, but NOT for His faithful ones. I started the post on the 5th. I was suddenly led, after the first two sentences to stop. Then, to pick back up on the 7th. The day of Holy completion.

The ministry for God’s Grace Faces Us, is not solely David and our family’s. It belongs to God. WE have been gifted to steward it. There are many ministries that carry the names of the people who began them. Or, who it appears began them anyway. 😉 Because God is truly sovereign. He is active in ALL things. His hand, whether it looks like it or not, is in everything.

In this healing and deliverance ministry we have battled ourselves. Not just others, and not just the enemy. Instead of laying ourselves down, so that the flesh could be crucified, WE chose to fight what seemed to be self, but also was God. David and I can confess that, and say to you readers, that we did and often do repent for places where we falter. Many people say they do this. But, I urge you to test the fruit. Ask God to Cleanse, Purify and Sanctify you, so that you can SEE through HIS eyes.

It is fascinating to me that the post is called Divine Intervention. That is happening ALL over the place. There are some who came under the covering of God, even recently. They had car accidents, and some have broken things on the car. But, THEY still stand. These people were unharmed. So for those who don’t believe. Can you tell me how that happened? You could say luck, but there really is no such thing. You could say fate, but that is just another word for divine orchestration and intervention. The truth is this; GOD is not dead and HE is fighting for HIS children.

We read Job 41 the other day. If you look at the biblical meaning of 41 it is incredible. This whole chapter is about how GOD fights for us, to the very end. He fights for the children who choose HIM, His ways, and are HIS obedient and faithful ones. It isn’t that He does not fight for those who disobey on purpose. IT is simply different, because God offers help. We do NOT have to take it. We have a choice. But, having tried it both ways to some degree, I can say HIS way is the only way that actually works.

I am going to share a testimony. First off, my husband just had his 41st birthday. So this number was already forefront. We have had a few times this year where we “lost” things. In fact, would say that WE have endured a lot of what this world sees as LOSS. However, in the midst God has been bringing healing and refinement. There was a time with the gas company where we endured a lot of persecution. God redeemed the time. David called in to pay the bill. IT was 41 dollars. God took us that day to the job 41 chapter.

Job 41 Amplified Bible (AMP)

41 Can you draw out the leviathan (the crocodile) with a fishhook? Or press down his tongue with a cord?

Can you put a rope into his nose? Or pierce his jaw through with a hook or a spike?

Will he make many supplications to you [begging to be spared]? Will he speak soft words to you [to coax you to treat him kindly]?

Will he make a covenant with you to take him for your servant forever?

Will you play with [the crocodile] as with a bird? Or will you put him on a leash for your maidens?

Will traders bargain over him? Will they divide him up among the merchants?

Can you fill his skin with harpoons? Or his head with fishing spears?

Lay your hand upon him! Remember your battle with him; you will not do [such an ill-advised thing] again!

Behold, the hope of [his assailant] is disappointed; one is cast down even at the sight of him!

10 No one is so fierce [and foolhardy] that he dares to stir up [the crocodile]; who then is he who can stand before Me [the beast’s Creator, or dares to contend with Me]?

11 Who has first given to Me, that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole heavens is Mine. [Therefore, who can have a claim against God, God Who made the unmastered crocodile?]

12 I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, nor his mighty strength, nor his goodly frame.

13 Who can strip off [the crocodile’s] outer garment? [Who can penetrate his double coat of mail?] Who shall come within his jaws?

14 Who can open the doors of his [lipless] mouth? His [extended jaws and bare] teeth are terrible round about.

15 His scales are [the crocodile’s] pride, [for his back is made of rows of shields] shut up together [as with] a tight seal;

16 One is so near to another that no air can come between them.

17 They are joined one to another; they stick together so that they cannot be separated.

18 His sneezings flash forth light, and his eyes are like the [reddish] eyelids of the dawn.

19 Out of his mouth go burning torches, [and] sparks of fire leap out.

20 Out of his nostrils goes forth smoke, as out of a seething pot over a fire of rushes.

21 His breath kindles coals, and a flame goes forth from his mouth.

22 In [the crocodile’s] neck abides strength, and terror dances before him.

23 The folds of his flesh cleave together; they are firm upon him, and they cannot shake [when he moves].

24 His heart is as firm as a stone, indeed, as solid as a nether millstone.

25 When [the crocodile] raises himself up, the mighty are afraid; because of terror andthe crashing they are beside themselves.

26 Even if one strikes at him with the sword, it cannot get any hold, nor does the spear, the dart, or the javelin.

27 He counts iron as straw and bronze as rotten wood.

28 The arrow cannot make [the crocodile] flee; slingstones are treated by him as stubble.

29 Clubs [also] are counted as stubble; he laughs at the rushing and the rattling of the javelin.

30 His underparts are like sharp pieces of broken pottery; he spreads [grooves like] a threshing sledge upon the mire.

31 He makes the deep boil like a pot; he makes the sea like a [foaming] pot of ointment.

32 [His swift darting] makes a shining track behind him; one would think the deep to be hoary [with foam].

33 Upon earth there is not [the crocodile’s] equal, a creature made without fear and he behaves fearlessly.

34 He looks all mighty [beasts of prey] in the face [without terror]; he is monarch over all the sons of pride. [And now, Job, [a]who are you who dares not arouse the unmastered crocodile, yet who dares resist Me, the beast’s Creator, to My face? Everything under the heavens is Mine; therefore, who can have a claim against God?]

This chapter ends with 34 verses. Biblically 34 is naming of a son. It is God’s way of claiming JOB. He is firm but loving with him. Saying,  “My son, you cannot do my job. Do not even try, you will fail. ” That is not the exact wording, and I am not attempting to reword anything. I am simply sharing what I know. I have this heart knowledge because like Job, He has admonished us like this.

See, brothers and sisters. WE can get influenced by arrogance, pride and even cockiness. Because, we are NOT infallible. Only God is. he alone is the only ONE who is immune to being affected by spirits. So, when we are hidden within HIM, He guards us. The Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus, and the Glorious Holy spirit are the shield to block out the effects of the darkness.

We ALL have experienced FEAR. Think about as a child when you were afraid of the dark. You did not know what was there. You may have even had a parent come in and clear out the monsters. But, here is the question that is being posed; Did they? Or, did it just appear that the monsters left. The ONLY one who can clear out spirits is GOD. It is through JESUS that healing takes place.

So, if your parents did not call upon God to do it, it really was not done. For years, this has been an awful pattern. We have been led to share about anointing oil. Our spiritual guardians, a man and His wife that God brought in to basically keep David and I settled and fastened to God, showed us something Heavenly. That OIL, specifically anointing oil is the only tangible weapon that is of HEAVEN. It is gifted to us, as protection, and to honor God. I cannot tell you how many times we have shared with people to use oil. Some do and some don’t. But, those who do, have WAY more peace. We have suggested doing communion with God to others. To do so means complete surrender. God doesn’t mind if it is bread and water. He just wants your hearts all in.

We will not make these suggestions to anyone without doing them ourselves. God deserves honor. I mean LOOK around at ALL He does. It is seemingly easy to spot evil in the world. In fact, many focus on it. But we choose to focus on GOD forming GLORY. Which He absolutely is. Everytime our “logic” that the world has taught us tries to impede the process, God intervenes. You know why? Because WE don’t try and stop HIM.

Some have looked at us, and tried to manipulate what the fruit is. I say to them, “WE forgive you and speak HIS blessings upon you. I urge you to say you are sorry to God. That is what repentance is. It is saying you are sorry and meaning it. IT is having a desire to never ever take that path again.” It is NOT about saying yes to be popular, or telling people that no matter what path you take it’s the same God. It is NOT. That is a lie. There is only ONE path to Heaven. It is through JESUS Christ of Nazareth. Jesus leads us to the Holy Spirit and Heavenly Father. It is holy 3 in one. It is JESUS who was gifted the honor of the human journey. It is HE that we can relate to most. However, as WE surrender ALL, we begin to SEE that it is also the holy union within the 3 that brings us to completion, to a place of holy perfection and divine wisdom and knowledge.

Without FAITH it is impossible to please God. So, what is your FAITH in? Is it in the one who made you? Is it is the fact that you have got things covered? Cause, you don’t and no one else does either. Only GOD can cover you. We can come into agreement with God using us to do so. We have that privilege, because we are COVENANT keepers. Our pastor spoke of THIS very thing on Sunday.

The world appears to be going to “Hell in a handbasket.” But is it? God has a plan. HIS plan will work. Thankfully, no matter what, HE gets His way. There is a HUGE revival hitting the land. We have spoken of Heaven invading earth. This is most definitely happening. Divine intervention is ALL over the place. the windows that seemed open for those choosing other gods, are closing fast. My heart often aches for them. I have been them before, to some degree. But, thank GOD for HIS process. He never took HIS hand off me. He never left me. He wept with me, screamed with me, and watched me bring harm to my body. But, He also was there, when I said “I am sorry. I never meant harm to a soul. Not even to myself. Forgive me mighty God. Create in me a clean heart and renew your spirit, a right spirit within me. Reignite the FIRE for righteousness. Thank you for loving me. “

I am reflecting a lot today. We tell our story, and like when Jesus told HIS, “Some just don’t get it.” But, we rejoice because SOME do. We are grateful every single day. We are experiencing MORE JOY than we ever have. It is NOT because of our circumstances. In fact, if we looked at that, we could just sit and stay in grief and mourning. But, the reason it IS available is because GOD is close to the broken hearted. He holds us and rocks us in HIS beautiful arms of GRACE and MERCY. He knows what has been endured. He knows we speak truth in HIM.

Never will we try and justify sin. It should not be justified. It should be stripped and extinguished. Because, we have sinned before. I would not say we necessarily sin daily. But, we do sometimes. Again, WE are not infallible or without flaws. His Grace does not give us a right to sin. WE have given up ALL rights to our mighty GOD. The Grace of God gives us the freedom to walk through the process, drive through it, run through it and fly through it on HIS eagle’s wings.

Do not misunderstand us. WE are very human. However, what was a major weakness in the humanity we experience, we see GOD transforming and turning into HIS strength. Recently as much so as yesterday, we experienced something really challenging. I won’t get into too much details about it. But, suffice it to say, it was designed to shoot us through the heart. Yet, our amazing brother JESUS came and wept with us. He came and put HIS hand on our heart. We experienced HIS healing. Such peace and holy stillness flooded us. Grateful that something meant to deter and distract us did not get roots. THAT IS DIVINE INTERVENTION INDEED.

In the eighteenth year of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, Jehoram the son of Ahab became king over Israel in Samaria, and he reigned twelve years. He did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, though not like his father and mother, for he put away the pillar of Baal that his father had made. Nevertheless, he clung to the sin of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which he made Israel to sin; he did not depart from it. Now Mesha king of Moab was a sheep breeder, and he had to deliver to the king of Israel 100,000 lambs and the wool of 100,000 rams. But when Ahab died, the king of Moab rebelled against the king of Israel.

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.

He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed.

As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away with their donkeys. They had gone only a short distance from the city.

These verses are great examples of HIS Divine Intervention Yesterday, we were at church, one that God just moved us too. Finally someone wants what God is using us to offer. Thank you JESUS. Anyway, I met the worship pastor. I was thrilled to see it is a man. Because that is the way it should be. Not saying women cannot assist or help. But, MAN is the head under God. It should be that way. Women can be in leadership, but WE must be accountable too.

This church is Heaven sent. The worship pastor wants me to start in the choir. I am so excited because I asked God, “Keep us humble.” THIS is an answer to that prayer. Divine intervention. Yesterday, when I was introduced to the pastor over music, the whole electronic system went crazy. I thought, “WOW.” Because our GOD fights for us. That devil does not have a prayer, no matter how it seems. Because the enemy has lost. No desire to mock anyone here, just a fact. It is finished and soon ALL will see just how TRUE God’s word is. They will see here are consequences and penalties for even attempting to come against God. Soon, and very soon we are going to see HEAVEN. In His Grace and GLORY, E and Family

Heaven is Invading

end-of-the-world gates-of-heaven Gothic Girl waiting for end of the world great-fire-london-1666_11739_600x450 images Pandemonium panoramic-high-definition-picture-of-london-after-1

This day begins a month that will go down in History. I was awakened close to 5:30am. Tired, but willing to arise, I got up and sought HIS purpose. This life is about relationship. Everyone should have a separate yet equal relationship with the creator. The reason it is separate and equal, is because GOD has a unique way to MEET us ALL where WE are. What makes it EQuaL is HIS LOVE.

The LOVE of God is so different than I ever expected. It is so ALL encompassing. I mean, it affects every ounce of who we are. When I first got married, I struggled a lot with marriage. By, no means have we achieved perfection. But, I can say with all boasting in GOD, that instead of all the HELL that seemed to be present, we NOW experience MORE of Heaven.

THIS is true for various reasons, for David and I and our family. One main reason is, we have NEW insights and revelations since our daughter has returned home. There is more PEACE gifted to us, and we receive it more each day from the KING of KINGS. Heaven is invading. But, remember, at times, THat may look or FEEL like Hell.

The reason this month is important is simple. It is the month of NEW BEGINNINGS. It is the year of Deliverance, and it is the TIME of REVELaTION as we come out of the age of GRacE. ANyone can look around and SEE God moving, if looking through HIS eyes. Observing the storms, and the earth that has been and will continue crying out for HIS healing to arrive; it’s fairly obvious.

What is NOT completely known at first is whom is doing what. Meaning is it God or the enemy? The answer is, even IF it looks like the enemy it is GOD. The sovereignty of GOD cannot be denied. The power that is attempted by the enemy is simply from that seed. But, everything from now to forever, and even b4 time began started with the one who LOVES us, and created us. It began in the garden of EDEN.

Then one day, something changed. But, GOD knew THAT would come. So, after ALL the curses were addressed, He was merciful. Jesus was sent to die on a cross. In the most horrific way possible. HE took on HELL and won. SO, shall the Heavenly KINGDOM kids, and JEsus within. This is a powerful time to just WATCH GOD and praise HIM.

There is a reason He has waited on this invasion. There is also a reason for all the other GLORY invasions that came b4. I was in church yesterday with David. While worshipping God I had a beautiful vision. I could see Jesus, and our butterfly Sarah Beth. It was in front of a blackboard. It looked like an old blackboard, like from Little House on the Prairie. Butterfly was washing it off. I could see JEsus smiling. I then saw a small pool of water. At first I saw much evil in the pool, then I could only see a blur, and then ripples. It was a healing taking place, a holy ripple effect. Now, when the enemy attempts to thwart the plans, attack the mind, etc, I consider this. Also, after the ripples began to fade, I saw myself, the way GOD sees me. It was beautiful. I was standing in royal garbs, and it was glittery ALL over.

I say this NOT to make this for a second about me. But, simply to say, GOD wants to gift this kind of LOVE to ALL of us. He has in fact, gifted it, by what was done on the cross in Calvary. It is a gift that WE can receive through HIS son, our brother JEsus Christ of Nazareth. When the word says “I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength,” It means it.

I sit here in TEars before HIM. They are tears of JOY and some of sorrow. I thank HIM so much. I go to HIM thinking we are not worthy. You know what He says, ” Have my mind. You will see that in ME you are a gift and treasure, and were always b4 tasting the holiness. I SEE you as worthy. By birth right you absolutely DO deserve my LOVE.” Waste us before you mighty GOD from the most beautiful place of holy desires. Take ALL we have to offer. Thank you for bringing us Heaven.

Soon there will be a split. It has already been prophesied. All that YOU desire LORD will arrive. Soon and very soon ALL will know that you are real. ONLY you care about every single soul. YOU make us whole. The earth will quake, and storms will arise. Yet, the winds and the waves obey who you are. Lord, you placed and created each and every star. You have NOT stopped creating. You continue to stir your spirit within. As we stand with you, people ask us how? They wonder why WE have such faith in you, especially now. How could WE not praise YOU. Though we don’t always understand. You are the one, who holds it ALL in HIS hands. You are FATHER, MOTHER, SAVIOR and BEST FRIEND. We will shout of your GLORY forever and ALWAYS till the end. Thank you for your LOVE though we feel so underserving at times. Also, we feel undeserving as well. LORD, you know your heaven invasion sometimes feels like Hell. The shift has happened now. New levels of freedom appearing. We sit before you hearing of what is to come. Our hearts have grieved, our spirits have received your truth. Holy is the lamb, redeemer and PROOF. Thank you for LOVING us still, never letting go or leaving us alone. Thank you that as we call you always answer the phone.

Praise – 2014

Are you ready??? If not, the TIME is NOW to say YES. Do not wait. Because, the longer you wait, the more is going to come. His love is an offering before you. Heaven is not only REal it is HERE. It will begin as remnant and it will grow. Watch GOD.

The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more.

Yesterday, David and I had the gift of seeing a movie screening. The name of the film is “The Remaining.” Consider the name. There are so many wonderful things in this film. They are disguised as darkness, but the light is very present. The reason we say they are disguised is, because darkness is the absence of light. God is LIGHT. He is GLORY. He is the one who remains, even in the midst of the darkness. Even when it appears, the darkness has consumed, HIS LOVE is bigger.

This day is the 30th,which Biblically represents the blood of Christ and dedication. There is no mistake that the Heavenlies are being stirred. Or, that the War is beginning to manifest on EARTH as it is in Heaven. Just remember this COGS, ( Children of God Supers) only ONE wins. It is NOT the enemy, no matter how it appears. Be not dismayed or distracted by the signs and wonders. Acknowledge and praise GOD. Praise the Heavenly Father, His son Jesus, and the beautiful Holy spirit.

The warnings have gone out and many are ignoring the truth. It is NOT always that they don’t know the truth. Some live life as if they are one way, and when the fruit is tested, it is revealed otherwise. There are many who, influenced by evil, and not openly corrected who are creating complications or attempting to. Yet, even the delays are an opportunity for God to pour out more HOLY FIRE on the LAND, and cultivate HIS Glory. Have you noticed that His Glory is birthed within the darkness?

Where the light is, the darkness cannot come. the LIGHT will eventually consume it. Because, even in the end, it will not be the enemy’s fire that destroys. It WILL be the FIRE of GOD. In fact, the “power” the enemy appears to have is simply God’s power manipulated. That was permitted for a season. BUT, it will NOT be permitted forever. Know THIS…that it is NOT time to play with GOD. It is NOT time to dabble in darkness. It is not time to ignore the plans or word of God.

It IS time to come to GOD and apologize. It is time to lay ourselves and anything NOT of HIM down on HIS altar. This movie, “The Remaining,” is like a holy version of the blair witch project. It is centered on the point God wants discussed. Choose THIS day whom you will serve. I’m not going to fuss at anyone, or condemn anyone. I am simply here, as a vessel to tell the TRUTH. Here is the TRUTH. Only Jesus the savior, can lead us to the Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit. ONLY Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Yeshua, the prince of PEACE is the KEY to holy salvation.

Soon, the anti-christ will come officially. That spirit is already on the earth. The word says even the elect shall be deceived. In this movie, it touches on Revelation, and very specific events that will come. It stirs up emotion, but from holiness. It is a film that has many hidden secrets. Some will die for faith. But, what a way to go.

The movie centers around 5 people. It is fascinating to me. Mainly, because 5 Biblically means God’s Grace and favor. The 5 who are the main characters, are chosen. They might not have known it, but they were. We need to get BOLD about God’s LOVE. Yes, recognize evil. But, be NOT afraid of it. Jesus looked at the devil himself and stood on the WORD. Should we not do the same?

anyone can attempt to manipulate something. ONLY GOD can create something. Be it a movie, a song, a child. ONLY God has the power to give life. I purposely am not saying a lot about this film. My husband calls it a “rapture film” I think, that it is beyond that category. It is a film that depicts what it will look like when Heaven falls onto the earth. Personally, I have never liked the word rapture. It is not officially in scripture. I can’t help but notice how similar it is to another word. It is similar to raptor. The word raptor signifies a bird of prey. God is not a preyer. HE is a prayer. He is one who LOVES beyond all human imagination or comprehension. He will not snatch us, HE will deliver us. Of THaT you can be certain, for those who choose HIS TRUTH.

The movie does discuss how the world sees things. BUT, it also discusses how the WORD sees it. The latter is how GOD views what is coming and in some cases, what has already begun. It is FINISHED. He is very clear. Yet, there is a playing out that must come here. We are told to rejoice, to sing praises. To know that HIS GLORY will and has WON. When we left the theater yesterday, we felt such JOY.

It had been years that holy intercessors and warriors have been praying and praising God for This. For, this beautiful representation on the BIG SCREEN. We have trekked through and survived the release of Harry Potter and Twilight and more. Many of us prayed that even THOSE films would be used somehow for the GLORY of GOD. Thank you JESUS!!! You are our healer. Thank you Heavenly Father!!! Thank you Holy Spirit!!!! We have prayed for the actors, writers, producers and their families. Fruit! Holy fruit is finally in THIS film.

This is the 4th God inspired film THIS year that is at the box office. “Heaven is for REAL” is the one right before this one. The GLORY film, in the 3rd spot. Plus, there was “God’s NOT Dead” and also “The Son of God.” WATCH God. He has HUGE plans. Many have been told that He is making hollywood into HOLYWOOD. It began from a good place. It will return, by God’s hand. My favorite part last night in the film, is when the pastor confesses something. such a beautiful humilty in this, as well as hidden truths.

You see, there are many, being affected by spirits. There are many calling others bound, and claiming they are FREE. But, God sees it. He is the one asking and offering more freedom. Yet, like the Prarisees, and the Sadducees. That typo was not on purpose, but it fits. The Pharasaical spirit is a nasty one. It preys upon the word. It tries to make the word fit its purpose. The Sadducees, are SaD you see? Call it evil, call it witch craft, call it blah blah blah. The point is unholiness is NOT of God. Manipulation is NOT of God. Serving self is NOT of GOD. At least NOT the GOD of LOVE, GRACE and MERCY.

New revelation on the LAST shall be first and FIRST shall be last. It is about honor, and position but also about the END. He will choose those who humble themselves to have KINGDOM wealth from Heaven. Those who cry out to GOD to be broken before HIM so that indeed holy restoration can come. It will come, not only for them, but ALL they pray for who have destiny to know and LOVE God. Also, to be loved by HIM is critical in THIS season.

We look to the movies that will follow “The Remaining.” Because they will have even more of the TRUTH of God in them. Truly, we can say that movie left us wanting MORE. Lord, WE desire MORE of you. It must be none of us. But ALL of you. We surrender ALL and repent on behalf of ourselves and the enemies of GOD. Thank you for opening Glory windows that offer ONE LAST CHANCE. Time is closing and the need has never been so apparent to those who sit with you. Thank you for who you are. We come into your courts praising you. YOU alone are GOD and so worthy to be praised. In Jesus Name Amen

Take GOD literally at His word. Go deeper in HIM and on HIs JOURNEY with you. It is worth it. Because, if you don’t an eternity of DEATH, TORTURE and destruction awaits. It is TIME. Be not religious, have relation with the ONE who made you, through the power of Jesus Christ. Choose GOD. Else you be remaining behind, and given that one last chance, then TIME will stop here forever.

And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he might not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were ended. After that he must be released for a little while. Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection.

One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound, but its mortal wound was healed, and the whole earth marveled as they followed the beast. And they worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?” And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months.

The voice I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps, and they were singing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are virgins. It is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These have been redeemed from mankind as firstfruits for God and the Lamb, and in their mouth no lie was found, for they are blameless.

The nations raged, but your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear your name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth.” Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen within his temple.

It is FINISHED

August 7, 2013 at 3:41am

A few days ago, I was spending time with our amazing Father and HIS glorious son, and the Holy Spirit. As this was happening, I heard HIM speaking into my spirit. He said, “On the 7th I want you to post this word. Because that day in August has great importance. It is completion in the month of NEW BEGINNINGS.” My spirit leaped for JOY because so many warriors right now are aching, licking our wounds, grieivng, and yet still doing and being used to do ALL we have been called to do. For He is doing so through us.

 

When He gave me the title, I was even more ecstatic. Some of us have been travailing for years. You all know who you are and HE does too, because He made you and me. So from Father’s heart to yours, may He use me to encourage you ALL today. Glory to GOD in the highest and peace as you receive HIS words.

 

SN : Before getting too far into this, after the word is completed I will be tagging some of you. He has given me wisdom on whom to tag.

 

The LORD said, “My children, Do you think that I am ignorant of and shocked by the enemies wiles? For I am not. I know this is difficult to see and be part of. But, I am here with you. I am carrying many of you right now. Others, I am binding your wounds up, so that you can continue. As many know by now, a changing of the guard is taking place. Many valiant warriors have requested release. So, I am releasing them. I am taking them home.

 

I warned you all that much death was coming. Because if I had not, than you would have fallen into despair and discouragement and stayed there. I am so proud of my children. I see you all, repenting, turning your hearts unto me. The ones who are not and have not, I grieve for you. I so desire as my word says, that none shall perish. But also, you know that some will.

 

A great revival has begun. Be encouraged as my strategies are so much bigger and more extravagant than the enemy who comes aginst you. Be aware that though the enemy is not stupid, he can only go so far, when you are hidden in me, and within my LOVE. Oh, how I LOVE you all. I will keep lifting you out of the miry clay, and delivering you from each egypt area that has been problematic in your lives. You will walk into the promised land with me.

 

Remember, anoint yourselves with oil in me. Take communion with me, seek my FACE because you will find more than you ever dreamed. JOY is coming. It is beloved ones. I know it is hard to recognize it because of the seemingly endless drought that has been happening. You are seeing the Glory rain fall. Begin to experience afresh and anew my ways, because they are not like the world you have been birthed into. But they are where I birthed you from.

 

Signs and wonders will follow you of course. But, be not dismayed when the ones that look evil try to infiltrate. I am sending you ALL out, my chosen, MY beautiful remnant all over MY WORLD. Your assignment, as many of you know, is to be used by me to take back the Kingdom. It was never lost, and all of this has been part of my plan. For it has been hidden in the world around you.

 

Consider the Lord’s prayer which I gave you. The job of my babies it to work with me and in me to bring HEAVEN to earth. It will happen, not because it has to, but simply because I promised, and I, your Father, never break promises. In this time, DO NOT LIMIT me. Make sure that you are eating of me and my word, and seeking my peace in all decisions and choices made.

 

To those married, be in agreement with your spouse. Women, my precious daughters you have done well. Many of you have been transformed into Proverbs 31 wives.  For those who have not, it is coming. Continue to surrender and submit to me and to me within your spouses. Men, you are rising up and you will wear the crowns in humilty. The angels are at your aid my children. The veil has been torn, and you will begin to SEE more, as you heal and receive from me. Eat my manna. You will know what it is. Pray over the food of this world, for no evil will befall you as you do so.

 

For those who are single, many mates are being prepared. You must release ALL bitterness, anger, unforgiveness, resentment, impatience, and pain to me. Leave it at the cross. For by the stripes of my son, taking every sin upon HIMSELF, you were healed. Choose not rebellion in this season. Beause the ways of the enemy will be overtaken with Holy Fire.  All my children must release all ties of this world. You all, to have Heavenly freedom, and not be overtaken must daily submit and surrender to me and give up all your desires. Mine are so much more for you, and I will resurrect the ones that are truly hidden away in your hearts.

 

Remember that when there is evil, you must pray aginst it, but be focused on Christ, my son. He is the one who will keep you safe, and walk with you as relationships change. Great destruction is coming for those who serve the enemy. Many of you have been shown these things. But also know that in this, my GLORY will be birthed, ike a treasure within the darkness.

 

Show kindness to each other in this season. You will encounter the least, last and lost. This is because ALL of you have been this very thing. You were chosen for a specific reason. You each have my purity, hope and goodness within. The word says that It is finished. It was in Heaven when my son died on the cross. Now, it will manifest on the earth. You will see ALL that you were promised. Use what I give you wisely, and let me alone lead you. For my son never sinned because He came to me. Let my spirit permeate your being so that there is more of me and less of you, always.

 

ALL MY LOVE,

 

Your Father who made YOU and whom adores you.

 

 

2 Corinthians 3:16-18

 

Amplified Bible (AMP)

16 But whenever a person turns [in repentance] to the Lord, the veil is stripped off and taken away.

17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom).

18 And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.

 

TAKE HEART for HE alone has overcome the world!

Did you know that Money is NOT evil? I know this is a controversial topic. But, it is also one that needs to be addressed. When I was awoken at close to 4 am today, this stopic registered strongly. That was a typo, I thought. God said, “Leave it. I am tired of my children harping on things of this world, and often ignoring mine.”  So, know this about this subject matter. It is important to the one who created us and gives ALL gifts. He is saying stopic, which God showed me means, “stop listening to the world topics, and pay attention to Heaven. It is MY world.”

Now, Money is meant to be for seeds. It is meant to bring growth. The word says, “It is the root of ALL evil.” David and I have always had plenty. My husband, graced by God is an incredibly intelligent man. I tell people, “He makes people like Bill Gates look moderately smart.” I say this, not to brag on my husband. I boast only in the ONE who made him. I thank GOD, for it is GOD who has gifted this, and really HE alone who is the smart one that we see. David is learning to come out of agreement with unholy logic. Talk about a hard thing. He was taught, as were many of us, that what is logical must be.

However is God’s logic the same as ours?

Because, His logic says, that when we don’t put anything above HIM, we inherit the Kingdom. Does that make any sense? I mean, we receive gifts from HIM, ALL the time. You receive a gift every single day. Remember, you can breathe. So, no matter how your kids are acting, or your spouse, friends, etc….you are LOVED. God’s money is SO different than ours. Let’s talk about it for a moment. His “money” comes in many forms. The world’s definition is THIS…

  1. mon·ey
    ˈmənē
    noun
    1. a current medium of exchange in the form of coins and banknotes; coins and banknotes collectively.
      “I counted the money before putting it in my wallet”
      synonyms: cashhard cashready moneyMore

      • formal
        sums of money.
        plural noun: moneys; plural noun: monies
        “a statement of all moneys paid into and out of the account”
      • the assets, property, and resources owned by someone or something; wealth.
        “the college is very short of money”
        synonyms: wealthrichesfortuneaffluence, assets, liquid assets, resources,means
      • Look at the examples given. Now see God’s example. It is something of value, a gift, a treasure, a holy currency. There is no need for it in Heaven, yet here, it can be gifted from there. Let’s explain further.

        My favorite definition here is of course the 3rd one. The computer seems to be having issues, with spacing, so bare with me on that. His Grace….oh HIS gRACe. God desires HIs COGS to b blessed beyond measure. In fact, WE are. But, where is the faith in staring at a bank account???

        Where is the TRUST in speaking difficulties? I mean, just because the logic is there, does NOT mean it is God’s desire. He is the one who makes us super heroes. But, let’s take a moment to look at the life of one of those. The one that jumps out to me is SUperman. Is this man wealthy? Well, some would say yes. But, he also seems very lonely. Few friends, and no wife.

         

        But, the enemy has been offering money and fame for years. The imposter has been permitted for a time. Now, is the TIME that the GLORY will thrive. It won’t be the GLORY of man. It will be the GLORY of God. Of that you can be certain. You can call it crazy, but I would not recommend it. Because, soon all will see….and know just how Great is our GOD.

        The Heavens are opening. God’s money is what brings value. It is a holy gift. Let me share some testimony. We had a restaurant and still do, but God put some things on hold. Before He closed the doors, He put 10,000 in our account. God did it. It was to pay the employees. When the business closed, they were angry at us. But, God. It is HIS business. We have responsibilty yes, and WE have and do surrender it ALL to HIM. But, the bank could not trace where the money came from. The enemy didn’t put it there. GOD did! It may have appeared that it came from one place, but we know HIs TRUTH. Every good and perfect THING comes from above. GOD gifted this.

        To HIM, that money is nothing. It is simply  a gift for HIS precious COGS. It is a tool to further the growth and fruition of HIS KINGDOM on EARTH. Another example is when we went to take Butterfly, Sar AH, to see Winter. God calls her Sar AH. It is like a breath of fresh air. I could not have described her better. When she went, for a while, it was hard to breath. But, seeing winter was frought with challenges. This amazing dolphin, was a gift to pur baby girl, not just the child who met Winter orignally, but to MANY children. We had our card declined. It would have been easy to walk away. But, God. He said, “Take David’s wallet and give it to me.” I asked David,” do you believe God wants us here to see winter? Do you believe that HE will make a way from no way?” He said, ” YEs.” Then an additional 20 dollars appeared in the wallet.

        This entry is NOT about money. In fact, we know money can be used for the purpose of Heaven of Hell. But, what it is about is who is the author of the distribution? Who are YOU permitting, by agreement to guide your money. Because GOD must be the guide. He must be the director of every step. Money comes from paper, at least Cash does. Paper comes from TREES. So does fruit. Money is the root of ALL evil. Yet, it can become the FRUIT of the KINGDOM when purposed for holiness.

        Lord, we repent for anytime that directly or indirectly money has become a god in our life. YOU alone deserve the GLORY. You are our provider. Alpha and Omega. You are the beginning and the end. As you humble us even more mighty GOD, bring your currency. Trust us LORD, for we will obey your heart. We stand and repent even for unbelievers who know no better. Make us living epistles. Help us to digest the plans you have Father God. We thank you JEsus for your healing power. We praise you HOLY spirit for your nurturing and correction. Break us down. Take what must be taken. For ONLY your GLORY must remain and shine.

        In Jesus Name and Blood,

        Amen.

        The LORD is changing our direction. Very tough things are approaching. Where is your security? Is it in a home? Is it in people? It must ONLY be in GOD. He must be your currency. It may sound cheesy, but ALL we need is HIS LOVE. He is the orchestrator of this beautiful LIFE symphony. Will you receive His new thing?

        Because if you are NOT open for change and holy correction, you will miss out. He LOVES you. But, God will only give so many chances. Look at HIs word. What does it say???

        We THanK GOD that as WE praise HIM and WE let HIM LOVE the HELL out of us, that His desires will come in, and HIs traits and character, will thwart the plans of the enemy to kill, steal, and destroy. He will NOT fail. Nothing is impossible for God. NOTHING. Stand on HIS promises. He will confound even the wise. WaTcH God.

        Break me into a million pieces. For You resurect, Put Back Together In Forward motion. You have my permission. Take me over. This day, may the love of who you are seep from my pores. I feel your hands, electric and smooth like lotion. Nothing but respect, the highest of praise. Thank you for the REST, even the grace to falter. For the only request is to lay it on the altar. Sin has not the hold it did. Every day a new repentant heart. Freedom taking flight, not seeing just in part. For drinking of Heavenly wine, is healing. It’s like nothing of this world. Awaken us to your truth. For it is appealing. It restores our youth. For every boy and girl, you desire rescue. Take us deeper mighty King. Bring us holy balance. We bow to kiss your ring. The tears flow, but not like b4. No more toxic ones, and only holy doors. It isn’t feeling easy, but not like the past. You’re love lasts. I am amazed by the wonder. The child like faith that throes the world asunder. Have your way. An honor to be you’re baby. An alabaster box before the throne, broken yet being restored.

Deep Calling OUT

This morning I heard the Father speak, ” I am calling ALL of my children into my secret place.” This day is the 21st. That biblically represents vengeance and excessive sin. God is wiping the slates for HIS faithful COGS. He needs us. Meaning, He has need of the faithful to reach out to the LOST. Like never before, this is necessary.

Deep is calling OUT. It is time to set the captives free. They have endured long enough. JESUS will set them free. We must come into agreement for HIM to use us effectively. WE must surrender ALL, and seek HIS purpose, plan and peace in ALL things. Because, in this season, if people are not following God, He will bring Heaven and to them it will be HELL.

Even for the faithful holy remnant at first the FIRE will burn. But, know this has purpose. Become acutely aware of the enemy’s scheme. Only under the tutelage of the LORD can this be. There will appear to be much death around. However, it is up to you as to whether it abounds. Do you care more about the souls of others, even than yourself?

Because major sacrifices will be required, based on obedience to the KING. You shall see. Everyone seems to think it is no big deal to be hateful to each other. But, it is a BIG BIG deal. THIS entry was begun on the 18th. God is breaking HIs children out of bondage. 18 Biblically represents this. It is finishing on the 24th, which is the ROYAL priesthood. The royal family that everyone else sees, is not the family of God.

But, it is TIME that honor is placed where it is due. Today at 1am, David and I returned from a trip. This trip went exactly as God desired. But, MAN was it tough in parts for us. HIS LOVE really does conquer ALL. 1 is New beginnings.  So, the house had lost power 4 1/2 days earlier. The temperature was like 85 when we walked in. Yet, God kept ALL inside well. Anyway, we came in, showered, and rested for a few. Then, we woke, went for breakfast, and our card was declined. ALL we could do was laugh. Grateful that there was cash in the wallet, we got food. We thanked God. Then, we came home, and there was no answer to the request for funds. So, we posted a request on FB. Within minutes, someone messaged David. Thank you LORD! Then, right after that, the previous request came through and then some. Half way through the day, we were led to go again, to the same place for a meal. We diud not get much, but what we did was interesting. The price was. $11.11. This is the number of the angels. I had seen it earlier. a girl at the counter said, you should play the lottery. My response was simple. I said, “If God wants me to have money, it will fall from the sky.” The teenage boy, who was just precious said something intersing. He said, “That is a good woman right there.” Humbled by the LOVE of God indeed. See, it is working, it is NOT pointless. Just move in His LOVE.

This song was on today….after I woke from a dream of battle with the enemy. The song is very appropriate. The power had been off for 5 days. We were led to donate the food. Also, God kept our kitty babies safe. Here is the SonG…

Hillsong –

“Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)”

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will standAnd I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mineYour grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

[6x]
Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

I will call upon Your name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine.

THIS song really has always spoken to me. Because the TIME is being prepared for God to do as he promised. so many promises. Whose side will you be on???
THIS  heavenly note from my sister Carla…given by GOD fits so well here.

~Time Is At Hand, Are You For Me or Against Me~

July 24, 2014 at 4:07pm

What more can I say to those that do not love Me? How can I reach the unreachable to search their hearts when they turn their back on Me, ignore Me, disintegrate My teachings from above, from the true Master and Teacher? I say none, nothing more can be done but to judge those that judge Me. My daughter, those that turn away from Me, oh what a sad, sorrowful day that will be. Do they not know I love them? How could they not know, for have I not spoke it many eons now? This saddens Me and I weep today daughter, for what is to come upon My people now. The lost, forlorn, they seek Me, they come to the Father, will you love me, save me? But what about the others, have they not heard the Word of God, have they not seen or heard the good news I brought to My people? Oh, people of Mine, how I weep today, for soon you will not see Me, for I have lifted My hand off America, your land, that I so dearly loved and created for a free people, who set you aside from all the others. You promised Me that I would be first, you promised Me, give me life, or give me death. But today My children you turn your backs on Me. This is not for those that love Me, who have struggled along the roadside, highway of life, who have given up themselves to serve Me, no, this is for all the others, even those that say they love Me, but do not, for how can they love Me, when they spit upon My name? Oh, holy nation where have you gone? Why do you despise Me? Have I not given you enough? I gave you freedom and liberty, your own constitution in My name, yet you disregard Me and tear down the walls that once built you up.

 

Oh woe to those that seek out to destroy My children, My chosen ones. They that love Me, who have stood their ground amongst the enemy. Do you not understand the power of the Word of God? Do you justify your ways simply to destroy what I built? The Word of God stands today, just as it did when it was spoke. Why take pieces of it and twist and turn it to suit your needs and desires? Have I not said that if you follow Me, love Me, I shall keep you all the days of your life? Yet you get angry at those who speak the truth, those that you say come against you. You become defensive at those I have chosen to speak out My words. They are not spoke to hurt you, make you afraid or unworthy, they are spoke because I love you and seek you. There are many that say they love Me, but do you, for what is a measure of love, how deep must it go to enter into the sin of man, to convict them and bring them to their knees in repentance? The sin of man has always been, yet there has always been a group of followers who have stood by, looked out for signs and wonders, who would give their very life for Me if I ask them. Are you one of these My children, would your give your very life for Me? When the enemy comes to attack you, are you ready to lay down for Me, or will you shun Me, take the easier route?

 

The time is at hand now dear ones, the day not far off now where many will see My chosen ones and their callings. You who I have called, you have stood up, you have walked the road, the path, you have been through the fiery furnace, yet you still remain faithful to Me. You My little ones, shall endure to the end and you shall be caught up to the heavens on that day when the Father returns to collect His.

 

Be one of these ones, come off your course of destruction to your life and seek Me. I am not to far away to be reached. The hour has not come yet that I am unreachable. Come lay down your burdens, your pain, your sufferings unto Me, don’t you know I want to take these things from you? Don’t you know, no love is greater than Mine? Come let Me show you little ones, don’t let the hour pass you by, for you see, I have always been and will be forever more, there is nothing I would not do to save you, love you, mend your broken heart. Come let Me love you before the dark hour approaches. Don’t be caught off guard. I have all you have ever wanted and needed, you just didn’t know. Beseech Me My beloved ones, come to Me in this midnight hour before the dark hand comes upon you, a darkness you do not want to endure on your own. For I Am the true living waters, I Am the way back home to eternity, come live with Me forever and ever. The time is running out, the clock ready to strike midnight, don’t let this hour pass you by beloved ones of mine.

 

Luke 12:40

“You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”

 

John 7:38
Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from with in them.
1 Chronicles 16:22

“Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm.”

 

Luke 12 6-7
Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
John 3:10 and 13-14

“If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

 

I have posted His words as He instructed me. scribed by Carla Kohler.

 

God is a JEALOUS GOD. Everything in HIM is LOVE and Holiness. He will not settle for just part of you. HE wants, desires and needs ALL of you. So are you ready??? He is coming back for a bride without spot or wrinkle. Will you let HIM clean you and straighten you out???

I hear DEEP calling OUT to DEEP….His arms are within reach. He is right there waiting for you. But, the windows will close. Don;t you want to KNOW? Don’t you want to see? Don’t you want to open the gifts that are ready? Because ALL He wants is your humilty. He wants you to say, HEAL us LORD. He wants you to cry out Forgive me God and I forgive them too, and even YOU. He wants the tears to FALL, so He can catch them. Will you say YES? Because, the TRUTH is, if you say NO you will forfeit ALL the blessings. God won’t just dress the wounds, He will make them evaporate by HIS holy fire. Yet, there are some, who will choose death, they will choose evil. They will have nothing left, and burn in the fire. No worldly desire can stop or change that upheaval. So, which side are you on? Are you a winner or a loser. God loves us ALL. But, only HE is the closer. He LOVES straight from Heaven, but know it can feel like Hell at first. DO you hunger and thirst for what is REAL? He is bringing Heaven and it is NOT dependant on how we feel. Watch GOD. It may seem ODD but will you swim? Can you stand HIS ocean? Because He is your life preserver and your healing lotion. Receive today….Heaven’t gifts, let HIM sift you for and in HIS GLORY. He deserves the BEST, the Rest and the peace as we obey and believe. ~

The Ocean – 2014 (EKS)

For David….and ALL the MEN of GOD….

 

 

The Afters

“Broken Hallelujah”

I can barely stand right now.
Everything is crashing down,
And I wonder where You are.I try to find the words to pray.
I don’t always know what to say,
But You’re the one that can hear my heart.Even though I don’t know what your plan is,
I know You’re making beauty from these ashes.

I’ve seen joy and I’ve seen pain.
On my knees, I call Your name.
Here’s my broken hallelujah.

With nothing left to hold onto,
I raise these empty hands to You.
Here’s my broken hallelujah.

You know the things that have brought me here.
You know the story of every tear.
‘Cause You’ve been here from the very start.

Even though I don’t know what your plan is,
I know You’re making beauty from these ashes.

I’ve seen joy and I’ve seen pain.
On my knees, I call Your name.
Here’s my broken hallelujah.

With nothing left to hold onto,
I raise these empty hands to You.
Here’s my broken hallelujah.

When all is taken away, don’t let my heart be changed.
Let me always sing Hallelujah
When I feel afraid, don’t let my hope be erased
Let me always sing Hallelujah.
Let me always sing Hallelujah.

I will always sing
I will always sing
Here’s my broken hallelujah.

So will you LET GO of what constrains you? What constricts you from receiving HIS LOVE??? The choice is yours. I choose Heaven. It cannot wait. Enjoying it more each day. Thank you LORD. We repent for places where we falter. We lay it on your altar. Take our ashes and make us beautiful once again. ~
http://christiand2010.wordpress.com/2012/10/22/reflections-on-deep-cries-out/

For the last two years I have served as Northwest University’s Worship Director. In some ways I have the opportunity to be the worship pastor for our community. This job has been one of the most defining and sharpening seasons of my life. A part of my job is reviewing the songs that we use in our services. Lately, we have been singing a very catchy song entitled “Deep Cries Out” that has provoked different thoughts. So I have taken the time to converse with different students, pastors, and professors in order to gain a holistic view of the song.  The following are thoughts and reflections of me and others, followed by my conclusion and application of those thoughts.

On the surface the song speaks of going into a deeper relationship with God using the references from Ezekiel 47, John 8, and Psalm 42. It also uses Pentecostal terminology from a prophetic movement that said wherever the Spirit and “river” of God would move the church would obediently and joyfully follow. The song calls the church to express their praise by jumping, dancing, shouting, and crying out.  It communicates a desire to encounter God in an ongoing way; this in itself is a cry that the people of God throughout history have uttered in one way or another and, in that sense, the impulse of this song is historically and biblically consistent with that practice. At the linguistic level, several phrases are obviously taken from Scripture (“river of living water” = John 7; “deep cries out (to deep)” = Psalm 42) and, anytime we sing Scripture, I think we are joining with God’s people through history.

However, in this case, these phrases are used without any particular regard to the way they appear in their Scriptural context. It becomes clear that these phrases have been used as “code terms” for a certain kind of religious or ecstatic experience that was not their original point of reference (note how they are tied to “shouting” and “dancing” and “jumping”). Therefore, even though some lyrical lines sound “Scriptural” they are less so than they seem. For instance, “deep” in Psalm 42:7 is a symbolic reference by a person who likens their suffering and desperation to “drowning” in God’s deep water = ocean, waves, and thunderclouds.

In the Bible, worship is our response to what God has revealed to us about himself and his ways. This song is heavily weighted on the side of response, especially when it says that we are calling out to God. The part about deep crying out to deep comes from Psalm 42 which is a lament. The verse is not entirely clear, but it certainly has to do with calling to God out of intense trouble that may well become worse. It doesn’t have to do with being in God’s “river” of blessing. On the contrary, Psalm 42 is from a “downcast” soul, basically somebody who is nearly drowning in trouble and sorrow. So that part of the worship song doesn’t really fit with that part of the Bible. The song looks quite joyful with talk of jumping, shouting, and dancing. That’s great! The joy of our salvation is real indeed!

Again, there is a biblical echo in turning right and left according to where God leads. This sounds like Isa 30:21. In all fairness, however, in most of the OT, God’s people are encouraged to walk straight, thus, turning to the right or left is a negative thing (see Deut 28:14) Proverbs 4:27 says not to turn to the right or left, and good kings were commended because they did not turn to the right or left (2 Kgs 22:2). But the idea of being unfaithful (turning right or left) is clearly not what this song about. It is likely that the references of “the river” and “going to the left” are uses of the language from a Pentecostal movement

A lot of contemporary Christian music is focused on us, the worshippers, rather than the one to whom we should be drawing all attention. The “we will never be denied” definitely errs in that direction, and is furthermore theologically and biblically incorrect. Add to that the focus on human agency (are we really the ones who stir up the wells and waters?!) and you end up with something that may well have a great rhythm and melody, but is something that is uncomfortable singing in honesty. A critique would be that the song is over-emotional, and I would not argue against that. The song and worshipers can be over-emotional. But, I would never want to forfeit the use of emotions in our expression and relation to God. Everything about Christ, His salvation, His return, and His coming is thought-provoking and emotional. I would not want to come to the place where the church would forsake our emotions in our attempt to “better worship” God. The true worshipers whom the Father seeks are thoughtful and emotional. Worship is a response. It is a response with our mind, will, emotions, and actions

Since worship is our response to God’s self-revelation, it is always good to look for how a song lifts up some aspect of God’s character or celebrates what God has done. We know him through his attributes (He is forgiving) which lead to his actions (He forgives). So then, what does this song say about God? God releases a river of living water from Heaven upon us. This is an echo of John 7:38 but the song says nothing about the Holy Spirit which is clearly what Jesus was talking about (read John 7:39). God leads us to the right and to the left. That’s a fair point, though fairly simple.

Jesus Christ is the real focus of worship, so I tend to look for how our lyrics point to him and what he did for us. On that point, this song comes up pretty empty. As a leader in charge of choosing music, if this song were in the list, I would not necessarily remove it. I would just be intentional that there were other songs to sing that did bring us as the people of God closer to the cross and throne of Jesus who we worship and adore. This song is not a worship song itself but more so a corporate call to worship.

I try to not loosely use the word “worship” for our time of corporate music (or even the arts). The music and singing, we do in our services is typically not just worship. I find that for our services at NU there are at least three purposes for this music time. First and most prevalent this time is for congregational worship (responding to the revelation of who God is, what He has done, and what He has said). This is done through songs about Christ, His attributes, and His deeds. Second, the time also serves as an opportunity to encourage our community through song, scripture, and testimony. This incorporates songs that are reflective, tell stories of Christ, or share about different hardships in life. These songs then often call the church to see life differently and hope amidst the situations. These typically are not worship songs. They are encouragement, but they can be used to lead the church back into worship. Last, the corporate music time is for the community to verbalize and remind itself of their commitment to God, desire for God, need of God, and pursuit after God. Again, these songs are not worship songs though they refer to God. These songs verbalize a desire and call for commitment to God. These songs are typically used in camp or conference settings where the goal is to cultivate a desire for God (which should lead to the true worship of God for Who He is and what He has done).

To conclude, “Deep Cries Out” does not qualify as a worship song. A few of the reasons (over-simply stated) being: 1) the song is man-focused and not God-centered, 2) it does not accurately convey the true meaning of some of the texts where it comes from, 3) it centers on what we want to do, not on God, 4) it really just does not worship God.  The song seems to be calling believers to a devotion to God, to follow God (shown primarily through the chorus, bridge, and tag), and specifically to respond through dancing, shouting, crying, and jumping.

As I stated before, not all of the purposes for corporate music time are for worship.  My aim is that the worship of God is always the priority and prevalence of what we do. I pray that we use our time together to worship Him more than anything else. As a worship leader, my goal is to lead people into the worship that they have within them and that God is entitled. Songs are used to reorient the heart, soul, mind, and body (strength) towards God. Again, I would not qualify this song as a worship song and it should not be treated as one.  It is important to remember that songs are not of themselves worship; they are a means to worship. Worshipers make songs worship. So intentionally, “Deep Cries Out” can definitely be utilized to prepare a congregation to worship together.

I propose that this song can fulfill the two other uses of our time of corporate music, as stated earlier.  It is vital for worship leaders to use a song like this with that intention. Know your congregation, their maturity, and their needs. Be very strategic in how to utilize the purpose of this or any other song. “Deep Cries Out” calls the church into a deeper commitment and relationship with God and then expresses that relationship with different forms of praise. These are things that we, as the church, want and need.

Mercy Me

“You Are I Am”

I’ve been the one to shake with fear
And wonder if You’re even here
I’ve been the one to doubt Your love
I’ve told myself You’re not enough

I’ve been the one to try and say
I’ll overcome by my own shame
I’ve been the one to fall apart
And start to question who You are

You’re the one who conquers giants
You’re the one who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You’re the one who walks through fire
You take the orphan’s hand
You are the one Messiah
You are I am
You are I am

I’ve been the one held down in chains
Beneath the weight of all my shame
I’ve been the one to believe
That where I am You cannot reach

You’re the one who conquers giants
You’re the one who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You’re the one who walks through fire
You take the orphan’s hand
You are the one Messiah
You are I am
You are I am

The veil is torn
And now I live with the Spirit inside
The same one, the very same one
Who brought the Son back to life

Hallelujah, He lives in me
Hallelujah, He lives in me
Hallelujah, He lives in me
Hallelujah, He lives in me

You’re the one who conquers giants
You’re the one who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You’re the one who walks through fire
You take the orphan’s hand
You are the one Messiah
You are I am
You are I am

Why do we COUNT time?

download

The last 3 days, I have been sitting before God. Some have a misconception that you can do nothing else but stare. I do believe that GOD can be mesmerizing. However, sometimes He calls us to do more than stare. I thank GOD for the gift of HIS LOVE. He gave me this topic this morning. He said, “My child, please stop counting time.”

I said, “I am not sure I understand.” He said, “When you walk from Heaven, there is NO time.” Lately, since our world was rocked, I have not been sleeping as much. I know GOD is calling me unto HIM. He has me literally take breaks from the world. What is awesome is THAT can happen, and life can go on as usual, in a sense. Let me explain. God is not limited. But, we as humans can be. Humans are only limited without GOD.

He gently reminded me, ” Time is not the healer. I AM.” Time is simply a tool that can be used in the healing process. ” Now, I should confess something. There was a season in my life, where I was unbalanced in FAITH. God so met me there, and when it tries to rear it’s ugly head again, He stomps it in the ground. God alone slays Goliath. He may use us to do it, but HE does it.

How many people live on a time schedule???? I mean the 9 to 5 job is a great example. THIS world is built around TIME. But, Heaven is built around LOVE. Hell is built around hate. THEY are polar opposites. Yet, there is a very fine line between the two.

So, why do we count time? Why do we stare at the clock wondering when the hours will pass sometimes? Have you ever experienced this? An example is in school, when the class is boring, or you are tired. another example is, at an appointment. If the doctor, teacher, or tutor is running behind schedule, what happens? Well, usually you just wait right? Isn’t this true according to the word? Don’t we have to wait on GOD? I know it is a lot of questions. But, it is time for God reflections.

The enemy shows a lot of people his mirror. Would you NOT rather see God instead??? I know I would. 😉

Isaiah 40:31 Amplified Bible (AMP)

31 But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.

Shouldn’t we LIVE according to God’s time schedule? Because I believe we should. Yet, it takes the mind of Christ to do so. God wants to be our LIFE manager. He wants to manage and take care of everything. In fact, it is one of the many hidden promises He makes us. When He says, “Come follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” He is talking about several things here. He is talking about learning how to LOVE through HIM. Also, He is speaking of holy discernment. It is actually a hidden reference to testing spirits. God wants ALL of us.

This song came to my spirit…

Years ago I watched a movie with this title. I was fascinated by it. It was a movie that captivated by attention. Mainly because it was about death, and how it does not stop LOVE from shining. GOD is LOVE. HE is, we are only LOVE in HIM.

All such boasting is evil. So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.

But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed. Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn!

Hearts A FIRE!

images (3)

Hallelujah! A child iS BORN! A son has RISEN!!!! THE FIRE HAS COME!!!!!!

The blog post was spoken over me today. I heard GOD clear. Though, the enemy tried to distract me. BUT GOD indeed.He said, ” My FIRE will fall from the sky!” I was like. YES Lord. I say this, because the FIRE hurts. I mean it burns, it dehydrates at times, it does destroy ultimately ALL not of GOD. I am grateful for THIS. No one can fight for us like HIM!!!!!!!

I am going though some changes. They are HOLY changes. So is David. They are REALLY uncomfortable to the flesh. Yet, we will NOT complain. We pray the BLOOD of Jesus against that. Because there is power in it. Absolute HOLY power. Afflictions last but a moment.

THIS season is about surrender. YOU will surrender to either God or the enemy. There cannot be both. It is not a have my cake and eat it too scenario. But, most try right? God is burning off iniquities. But only to those who agree HE will. He says the JUST shall live by FAITH.

One of my FAVORITE songs is….

“You Won’t Relent”

You won’t relent until you have it all.
My Heart is yours. [x2]I set you as a seal, upon my heart
as a seal upon my arm
for there is love,
that is strong as death
jealousy demanding as the grave
and many waters can not quench this loveYou won’t relent until you have it all.
My Heart is yours. [x2][Chorus:]
Come be the fire inside of me
Come be the flame upon my heart
Come be the fire inside of me
Until You and I are One
Until You and I are One.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hear the DRUMS of WAR.
ANother song that came to me is….
“Do You Hear The People Sing?”

[Enjolras:]
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes![Combeferre:]
Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?[Courfeyrac:]
Then join in the fight
That will give you the right to be free![All:]
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!

[Feuilly:]
Will you give all you can give
So that our banner may advance
Some will fall and some will live
Will you stand up and take your chance?
The blood of the martyrs
Will water the meadows of France!

[All:]
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Something that is interesting about these lyrics, is what is common. The commonality is PASSION. It comes from FIRE! So when you get burned with HIS fire will you perish???

The last song is from LES Miserables.  David calls it less miserable. I think that is interesting. Because are WE less miserable when we fight? NO. We are LESS miserable when we REST and are in PEACE. Fill us with your FIRE LORD. Fill us with your PEACE and ALL you are. PURIFY us mighty GOD!!!!!!!!!!

This has and will always BE my hearts cry. One more song…

“Heart’s Cry”

By: Steven Curtis Chapman

This is my heart’s cry
I want to know the one who saved me and gave me life
This is my heart’s cry to be so close to Him that all my life becomes
A testimony of my Saviour’s grace and love
This is my heart’s cryThis is my heart’s cry
Much more than just a great desire–it’s like a fire in me
I hear my heart cry each time I think about the cross where Jesus died
The cross should have been mine but His love broke through time
And heard my heart’s cry–He heard my heart’s cryNow every other hope and dream is lost inside of this one thing
To know the one who died for me and live my life for Jesus Christ
Oh this is my heart’s crySo let my life become a testimony of my Saviour’s grace and love
Oh, this is my heart’s cry–to stand before the Father one day
And hear Him say well done–this is my heart’s cry.

These lyrics… are ALL connected. It does not seem like it. But they are. They are connected because they were written from the HEART. What does your heart say? Whom does it beat for and in union with? Because, it is VERY critical in this hour.
Everything is NOT going to always seem perfect. BUT, the more LOVE is shown, the more GOD perfects it. He wants a repentant heart. If you do NOT come before HIM with that gift, ALL else falls by the wayside. Because, He cannot and will not honor a heart that is not committed and fastened to HIS.
So, I say BURN LORD!!!!!! BURN IT ALL AWAY!!!!! Set ablaze whatever must GO! Have a bonfire of the evil that surrounds us. Thank you JESUS!!!!!! I repent b4 you and know that I falter sometimes. But, I thank GOD that YOU never waver. That the more hidden within you, the less, WE will. Thank you GOD for your HOLY FIRE!!!!!!! It dispells the enemy’s lies.
In JESUS HOLY name and BLOOD,

PEACE by piece

a.aaa-Light-From-The-Sky download images mountains-after-storm-beautiful-blue-clouds-dark-light-mountains-sky-snow-storm-white

This morning HE woke me early. I thought at first, I thought I was going to sleep in. But, GOD is so gracious. He knew it was not meant as a complaint. Rather an observation, that I was called to get up earlier than expected. I LOVE God. He gives us exactly what we need. Gently, I could feel that tug. I could sense the “I have need of thee.” What an honor.

This topic was given to me yesterday. While driving yesterday the most beautiful thing happened. God had given me a word. It was “Daughter I want you to drive until it gets dark.” I said, Okay Father. Now, normally it gets dark between 8 and 9. But, He kept the light in the sky until 9:30 or later. He had us stop within about 30 minutes or so afterwards. here is what is most significant. 30, is Biblically the blood of Christ and dedication. Also, when looking in the rear view mirror, it was pitch DaRK behind us.

It was really amazing. I mean I was just in AWE. I heard the LORD say, “My PEACE is the missing piece.” I saw a vision while driving, of a puzzle. I mean THIS puzzle was HUGE. It was the Last piece of the puzzle. I asked, ” What does this mean?” I heard quite simply,  The number one thing that the adversary does, it to try and even temporarily take the peace of my children. It is a mighty weapon. Be still and KNOW that I am GOD. Let me teach, guide and direct and YOU will not fail because I will succeed.”

Now, many know what we are enduring. We are approaching the 7 month mark of our precious butterfly taking flight. Yet, GOD is being so incredible. I mean truly in many ways, by HIs Grace and through HIS power, we are receiving Heaven. I struggled with this trip we are on. I mean that in so many senses. It has been and still is, a constant surrender. A constant, “Okay LORD, your ways not mine, or David’s or anyone else’s.”

But, having said THAT, I have never been so touched by GOD. I have NEVER in my almost 38 years had the level of intimacy that I now have. I believe it is because WE are partaking in HIS suffering in a whole new way. Is it because I am special? Well, in a sense YES. But, not like you may think. It is because GOD sees US ALL as special. To HIM WE are HIS babies, rare Jewels to a world that is mostly lost.

I am going to post a few scriptures on PEACE. For those who read this blog you know how much I love the opentopics site. 🙂 The main point of this entry is that the PEaCE of the LORD is what overcomes. It is FAITH in HIS promises. Like humpty dumpty, we FALL but He picks us up and He puts us back together again. IT is done BY His peace, as HE pours out HIS GLORY. We are renewed peace by piece.

Be still my soul, Be still. Wait patiently until. My heart unites within the walls of HIS LOVE. Be still my soul be still. God is commanding us from the deepest place of LOVE that WE can fathom. He is commanding us to receive HIS peace. But, WE cannot do so without repentance before HIM.

That is the number one lie the enemy tells. I mean he is somewhat “famous” for false peace. No Glory is ever given to the adversary. Though, it may appear it is. It took years to stop focusing on circumstances. Even still, it is a daily submission to GOD. I mean, I am far from perfect. But HE can and does perfect my ways by HIs LOVE. He can do the same for you.

So, as a mom, and I still am; reminding myself 😉 I must remember to stay focused. This is true as a daughter, a COG, a wife and any other hat HE gives me to wear. The focus must remain so that HE can maintain. It remains on HIM. It does not mean that WE will never lose focus. sometimes things seem blury. But, at the cross He has hidden secrets. They abide within us, but within GoD who dwells within HIS children.

We are temples of the LORD. Even a person who naturally has not chosen GOD is still loved by HIM. However, HE may know them, but they don’t really know HIM. At least not in a way that is tangible and conscious. When Sarah Beth was little, I would think and pray. One thing that would pass my mind is; “I hope she knows God.” She came in knowing GOD.

Everything is NOT necessarily mind blowing. God is most often found within the simple places, and faces. But, everything, every PIECE and every PEACE is important to God. I cannot tell you how many times He reminds us to stay wrapped in HIS LOVE. In psalm 91 it is clear. It talks about the power that comes when abiding in HIM. Is it our power? No, it is not. It is the power of God gifted and spread of over us, because oh how HE LOVES us.

I want to say to those who have LOST children something. “They are not LOST to GOD.” In fact, if these children passed and were under the age of 12, they are with HIM. There is no doubt, question or agonizing needed. He FOUND them. You know that phrase, “One mans junk is another mans treasure?” Well, GOD does not make JUNK. We are ALL treasures to HIM.

We fall down, we LAY our crown at the FEET of JESUS. ~

He will pick it back up, after cleaning it up, and making it all shiny and NEW. He will pick us up. When Peter walked on the water, and began to fall, Jesus extended HIS hand to HIM. He does so now unto you precious ones. Will you receive it? Will you lay down every burden and care? Will you LET Him lift you up? Because He is waiting, and the time is running. The clock of this world is ticking by. One day, this world will run out. I ask you, to please consider a change. Consider giving the brokenness to GOD. It is a gift to HIM. The best one we can ever give to the one who LOVES us most. Thanks be to GOD.

This song keeps coming to me…

“Coming Out Of The Dark”

Why be afraid if I’m not alone
Though life is never easy the rest is unknown
Up to now for me it’s been hands against stone
Spent each and every moment
Searching for what to believeComing out of the dark, i finally see the light now
It’s shining on me
Coming out of the dark I know the love that saved me
You’re sharing with me

Starting again is part of the plan
And I’ll be so much stronger holding your hand
Step by step I’ll make it through I know I can
It may not make it easier but I have felt you
Near all the way

Coming out of the dark, i finally see the light now
It’s shining on me
Coming out of the dark I know the love that saved me
You’re sharing with me

Forever, forever I stand on the rock of your love
Forever I’ll stand on the rock
Forever, forever I stand on the rock of your love
Love is all it takes, no matter what we face

Coming out of the dark, i finally see the light now
It’s shining on me
Coming out of the dark I know the love that saved me
You’re sharing with me

I know it was written by Gloria Estefan.

I was thinking about the lyrics. I would say bar none….that THIS is where I am. Finally in the LIGHT with HIM. I have always been there, but never like this. It is like I visited it before, and now I live there. Thank you GOD that your light NEVER goes out. Hallelujah!!!!!!!

PAIN is HIS Gain

When I woke up today, I had no plans of writing. In fact, I tried to go back to sleep. I got up, walked around and felt pain. But, I wasn’t mad, like I usually am. I was grateful. I am grateful to be alive. Today is the 11th in the month of July. 11 Biblically stands for disorder and judgement. 7 is Completion. Look around you….can’t you see that happening? God is bringing it from the Heavens. The hardest part about it is the more GLORY that arrives, the more pain our flesh will feel, at first. The more pure God makes us the less the pain will have access from a place of Fear.

Pain-Illustrated-In-Photo

I went through something recently for 8 days. Biblically 8 is New Beginnings. I was having very intense physical pain. I was not led to take much medicine, or use the normal methods to deal with it. I was simply led to wait. I praised GOD, without verbal words, because the pain was so intense. It was probably more intense for many reasons. I wept with God. I stayed with HIM only. so much so, that it was like I wasn’t even here. When it was done, the pain was GONE.

I used to be ashamed to talk about these encounters. But, not any longer. The Lord, gave me much revelation about pain. In fact, it was a few years ago that He began discussing it with me. The best way to get through it is to praise HIM who brought us to it. It is NOT to complain, because THAT creates MORE pain. God does not want us in torture. But, He does want to teach us the difference about the world’s view on pain and HIS.

As a child, I would hear a phrase I NEVER liked. It is the phrase, “NO PAIN NO GAIN.” I thought, are you kidding me? What on earth is the purpose of pain. But, now we have more insight on that. The earthly pain, and our humanity prepares us to receive the GLORY of Heaven. In Romans it discusses this.

Yesterday I had a dear friend mention that she was in pain. I sought the LORD as to why we have pain. This is what I received. “If my children would only learn that the PAIN is temporary, than it would NOT overcome them. It is a breaking that happens on the way to the Glorious Promised Land. Look at the Israelites. Why did it take them so long? Was it because of the pain? NO! It was because they grumbled and complained about the pain. If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray, then I will heal their land. It must happen in my way and my time. Your job is to praise me for handling it ALL.”

It seems simple when God breaks it down. We will have pain. But, that does not mean we are not free, or that we haven’t done enough. IT simply means, it is PART of the process. Our God breaks us down, to feed us to the multitudes. I rejoice in the PAIN because the more GOD feels I can handle here, the closer I am to HOME, in Heaven.

Be STILL and know that HE is God. do you know that during the 8 days, I was refreshed and brought to much encouragement. It was not because I opened my bible every single day. I’m not saying that is not a good thing. I am simply saying this, the word is in me. I was led to just SIT at the feet of JESUS. so much so, that I was almost not even conscious here in this world. My husband has been married to me for 8 plus years. He now knows that these sabbaticals, though at times feel inconvenient to HIM, are necessary for the plans GOD has in mind.

When I awoke from this strange state, which to my flesh was HELL; I was filled with Heaven. I had NO pain, and when the pain comes now I rejoice. Because the praise of GOD really does shut the door to the enemy. I am grateful for God’s mercy on me. Because He knows how much I am used to pray. He knows the works that others do not see. He knows because it belongs to HIM. I’m saddened by what is to come for the enemies of God. More pain than some can bear. Because they have been warned, and yet continue on against Him.

Be prepared, anything that is held over GOD will be removed in this season. I urge you to NOT fear and to surrender especially the children to GOD. Because it ALL belongs to HIM. The gifts are shared with us. But, know that He will offer them a chance to go home first. In the next few years, we will see what looks like an increase in deaths. This will be especially true with young children. Yet, in many cases it will be releasing of the captives. Because GOD is bringing and has been bringing increase of HEART knowledge to this world. It is coming straight from the THRONE of Heaven. Some are not prepared to receive it. Are you ready? Because if you are NOT ready and if you are a hindrance to the process, in any way God may just remove you. Tomorrow is NOT promised on this earth, but it absolutely IS in Heaven.

This song came into my spirit……It was written by Kim Hill.

Holy, You are still holy,
Even when the darkness surrounds my life
Sovereign, You are still sovereign
Even when confusion has blinded my eyes
Lord I don’t deserve Your kind affection
When my unbelief has kept me from Your touch
I want my life to be a pure reflection of Your loveCHORUS:
And so I come into Your chambers
And I dance at Your feet Lord
You are my saviour, and I’m at Your mercy
All that has been in my life up to now
It belong to You
You are still holyHoly, You are still holy
Even though I don’t understand Your ways
Sovereign You will be sovereign
Even when my circumstances don’t change
Lord I don’t deserve Your tender patience
When my unbelief has kept me from Your truth
I want my life to be a sweet devotion to You

CHORUS:
And so I come into Your chambers
And I dance at Your feet Lord
You are my saviour, and I’m at Your mercy.
All that has been in my life up to now
It belongs to You
I belong to You

And so I come into your chambers
And I dance at Your feet Lord
You are my saviour and I’m at your mercy
All that has been in my life up to now
It belongs to You
I belong to you

You are still holy, You are still sovereign
You are still holy, Lord
You are still righteous
You are all knowing
You are still holy, You are still holy

The whole point is, PAIN is REAL. I was asked if I was real yesterday. I thought, well YES. It was a silly question to me. But, the question is one that deserves reflection. Are we REAL? This person asked this because she couldn’t see my FB page. It was likely a glitch in the system, or could have been an attack attempt from the enemy. Or, it could have been God holding off things for HIS timing. What was interesting was, right after I said YES, another friend piped in. She said, “I can vouch for her. She is real.” I thought wow. Because instantly, the scripture came to mind….no man loves His brother more than to lay down HIS life for a friend. Could that mean to vouch for one as well? I think so. 🙂
The world is in a seemingly tumultuous state. But, God is NOT unaware. I personally have wept tears of blood at least 37 times in the last two years. IT does not make me more spiritual, or more connected to God necessarily. But, what it does show me is the PAIN felt in the Garden of Gethsemane. 37 Biblically is the word of the FATHER. It represents wisdom. I cried out to GOD hard. I let go of, to HIM what I considered my most prized possession. She came like a fesh wind, and she left the same way, even more fresh and beautiful. It is to date one of the most painful and yet PRECIOUS experiences I have ever had.
We DO not celebrate the PAIN itself, but the release. Just as we don’t celebrate death. We celebrate GOD overcoming it! Perhaps as a dear sister pointed out to me, the PAIN is how GOD keeps us close. For HE is close to the broken hearted indeed. We can testify to this.
http://www.openbible.info/topics/pain_and_hurt
Do you believe God has freed you from the pain? Then rejoice and DANCE before HIM. He is watching.
Heavenly Father we thank you for the JOY and the PAIN. We thank you for the sonshine and the rain. We are grateful that you LOVE us so relentlessly. You alone are GOD. It is because of your LOVE that we are here. Thank you for the passion you have for your COGS. We repent for places we falter, we lay it ALL on your altar. ALL the pain, and ALL the gain. You alone are GLORY.
In Jesus Name and BLOOD,
Amen
In His Grace and GLORY,
E an Fam

Baby Steps lead to BIG LEAPS

The day this was originally written, marks 6 months since our beautiful butterfly entered eternity. What a beautiful gift to dance into the arms of JESUS, and stay. Yet, what an earthquake it feels like left behind, to those who mourn. When the blog post name was given, I thought about it. I wondered, “What direction is God going to take this?” I never know which way He is going to go. But, I do know that whatever way it is, it will be GLORIOUS.

2780_106607207784_6557066_n

When we come into this world, it appears that we come in as innocent. Yet, that is not always the case. If we come into the world, and generational curses are not broken off, we can bring in both Heaven and Hell. So we think about what the word says. It states, “first you must learn to crawl, then to walk, and finally to run.” So, from the get go, we come in taking baby steps. Here is the question, “What are we walking to?”

Are we walking toward the HOLY light, or the false holy light. How many times do we make excuses for our loved ones, or ourselves? How many times do we rationalize or justify, influenced by stuff other than GOD? If we are not aware that we are doing so, it could be practically every day. Please take some time to reflect on this with GOD. Ask HIM if you have any areas that need healing, improvement or surrender. Likely, there will be some which require all 3.

As a baby, one of the first things that most children do is feed. They either breast feed, or bottle feed. I personally, don’t think it matters, as long as that child is surrendered to GOD by the parents. Because, He can use and bless anything, as long as surrender is present. If it isn’t, at least not to HIM, then what should be blessed can remain cursed.

Another thing a baby learns to do is to speak. Our butterfly spoke at 7 months. We were in shock, hearing words come out. The first word was hi. The second word was dad. Probably third was mom. She was doing what we call a crab crawl. Before she crawled forward, she crawled backwards. Now how many of us do this? How many times do we go to GOD, and say this; “Can I try it my way….please.” I mean, my goodness. Is it necessary to try almost every wrong way before seeing the right one?

This is not said to condemn anyone. It is more about reflection. He encourages us to study to show thyself approved. This is both about the word of GOD, and also seeking what is hidden inside, both the GLORIOUS and HEAVENLY, and also what is a hindrance and ultimately seeds for hell. We cannot have both. The fact is, no matter how good a person is, if the person has not taken the BIG LEAP to choose JESUS as LORD and savior, then they will perish eternally.

God has been very merciful to many. However, HIS level of mercy to those in blatant disobedience, rebellion and defiance is definitely changing. His level of Grace is as well. Because some think we are in an age of religion. Yet, GOD says we are in an age of REVELATION. We are now out of the age of grace. Which is a very good thing, because many were permitted to take advantage. That permission has now been revoked.

Soon, ALL shall see the GLORY and SPLENDOR of GOD. Soon ALL will know that HE is the ONLY true GOD. Our awesome GOD meets people where they are, however HE does not change who HE is to do so. SO, why should we? Yet, how many of us do? How many of us, influenced by fear, fall into the trap of attempting to play God?

Will we continue to live in punishment? Because we were freed from it on the cross over 2,000 years ago. He has shown us that this spirit is one of the keys to death and hades. So, here is the question, where are we walking? Are we walking the line, by towing the line? Are we accepting only what we think we deserve, from a negative stand point? Because just yesterday, it was revealed that I could not take ownership, for fear that I would fall into pride, or mess something up.

Is that fear mine? NO. Yet, I was taking ownership of that. Forgive me LORD. Baby steps are simply that. They start with a mustard seed of FAITH. But, it can’t stay that small seed, it must GROW by HIS LOVE. How they turn into giant leaps is simple as well. When the trials come, you learn to REST in HIS peace. To give HIM new songs, poems, praise, and so much more is what GOD desires from us. Because HE knows that in that place of cleansing, purification and sanctification, HE will not only show up…HE will sow out. That should have been show out, but both are true. 😉

Daily we divorce the enemy. God reminds us that WE are not the enemy to each other. IT is the spirits and principalities that we fight. Is it comfortable? Well, no it definitely isn’t. At least not ALL the time. But, we definitely are comforted in the process. It is an honor to be loved by and to serve GOD. It is a privilege to be covered by the blood of JESUS. It is an honor to come to HIS throne and sit at HIS feet. It is a JOY to be overflowing with who HE is.

Do you think that we always had the exact same amount of faith as now? Because, trust me, we did not. There were many times that we claimed the scripture about the mustard seed. In fact, we still do. Every time we read that a loud, more holy seeds are planted. More baby steps are taken. More giant leaps are prepared through HIS transformation of our hearts, souls, spirit, minds, wills, and emotions.

I told someone last night, “We used to waver, in particular I did.” But, it was spoken over me, and David that we would not wobble in faith any longer. Thank you JESUS! We are seeing rapid change from what was, to what is and ultimately what will become HIS desires as ours line up with HIM. This really is the point of walking the line between GOD and satan. The point is that in GOD the line becomes very clear, and at times, GOD can erase the line, because surrender is so deep, that the enemy has NO Access any longer. NOW that is a QUANTUM LEAP indeed.

It is time that as WE grow up in the FAITH, through our awesome GOD, that the children we have been gifted do so as well. IT is TIME to teach the children about the armor of GOD, the power of GOD when being obedient to HIM only for HIS purpose and plan, is unexplainable. Truly, words don’t cut it when attempting to share how incredible and unimaginable the power of GOD IS! Things like communion, anointing oil, prayer, praise, and worship are holy weapons. Even repenting becomes a holy weapon when done from a sincere heart.

Can you see the difference in the kids and adults???

 

Jesus says in scripture, “When I was a child, I thought like a child. But, then I became a man and put away childish ways.” Are we doing this??? Because if we are not, is it surprising what God has permitted? The answer is  repentance….TURN to GOD. He will teach you to crawl, walk and RUN the race. You are HIS baby, and HE loves you.

The scriptures being included are about newborn babies. Because We MUST get back to the basics, especially PRAYING scripture for HIS purpose and plan over HIS precious children, HE so graciously shares with us.

About this we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing.

But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Think about this….I know it is NOT easy to consider, but it must be addressed. How would you react if GOD called one of your children that you steward HOME? Because, if we avoid taking this topic to GOD, and it were to happen, we would not know how to handle it. WE can do ALL things through CHRIST who strengthens us….ALL not just some. I normally wouldn’t want anyone to think about something like this. But, know this, we are in a very different time then we have been. GOD is doing things a lot lately, that to us, without the mind of Christ, it would seem just unreal. Those who do have the mind of Christ, can take it in, digest it and see HIS purpose. These events are meant to strengthen not destroy. Strange as that sounds, it is TRUTH.

 

Thanks be to GOD the FATHER, HIS SON JESUS, and the HOLY SPIRIT. Yes, we repent for places we falter. Yes, we thank you for LOVING us anyway. We praise you for taking us up to where you are mighty GOD. It isn’t because we strove to get there, it was because we drove there in YOU. You are clear about it being finished. WE must REST in that, even in the combination of baby steps and giant leaps that will arrive and arise. Thank you for not sparing the ROD. You never spare the Reversal of Destiny. Show us your GLORY LORD. May only you be GLORIFIED.

In Jesus Holy Name and BLOOD, AMEN

By HIS Grace and in HIS GLORY,

E and FAM
