THE GATES ARE OPENING…TIME TO GO THROUGH

TODAY….the GATES of HEAVEN are OPEN. It is the 7th which we know is HOLY completion. March is the 3rd month which is GLORY. IT is the 2014 – 20 is REDEMPTION and 14- Deliverance according to HIS WORD. ¬†Today GOD is working hard on your behalf, if you are serving HIM. It may not LOOK like it. But, be NOT dismayed by what you THINK you see. THere is SO MUCH more behind HIS holy veil and curtain. The question is DO you want to SEE it? Because GOD is showing HIS TRUTH and GLORY to many of HIS chosen COGS.

It is high time that WE as nations come together in HOLY UNITY of the LORD. That we fight back in the spirit against things like FEMA. Things that were put in place to hurt and harm. But, GOD will turn it around. IT absolutely will work for HIS GOOD and for the good of those who LOVE HIM, receive that LOVE and are called according to HIS purpose. BE NOT AFRAID. Put on FAITH. REaffirm YOUR ARMOR. Ask Father to drench you in HOLY OIL!!!!! IT works!!!!

This morning I was thinking, WE still need to have communion. I repented and said, sorry Father GOD that we have not. He said, “Daughter know that my time is PERFECT. You will not me up my plan. Just keep LOVING and worshiping me. I will walk you through my HEAVENLY GATES. Funny that should have been we will NOT mess up HIS plan, but BOTH are true. ūüėČ

I will NOT justify sin. I have fallen into that trap before. The spirit of justification leads to DEATH. Eventually we must face that head on. WE cannot run from demons. It is a command from GOD to send them to the ABYSS where they belong. Persecution will HEAT up, but so will the BLESSINGS and FAVOR of GOD when we RECEIVE His LOVE. We walk in LOVE not to get something but to HONOR our mighty GOD!!!!

The HEAVENLY GATES are open, it is what is meant when “UNDER AN OPEN HEAVEN” is spoken. One of the many layers of this is open gates. Also, OPEN SKIES are present. This is why the enemy is trying so hard with his last resorts. SOme things may not be directly from GOD, but will often be permitted by HIM. His plan is always in action, and remember that HE wins! GLORY to our mighty and HOLY KING!!!!!

Revelation 21

Amplified Bible (AMP)

21 Then I saw a new [a]sky (heaven) and a new earth, for the former [b]sky and the former earth had passed away (vanished), and there no longer existed any sea.

2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, all arrayed like a bride beautified and adorned for her husband;

3 Then I heard a mighty voice from the throne and I perceived its distinct words, saying, See! The abode of God is with men, and He will live (encamp, tent) among them; and they shall be His people, and God shall personally be with them and be their God.

4 God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away.

5 And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine).

6 And He [further] said to me, It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I [Myself] will give water without price from the fountain (springs) of the water of Life.

7 He who is victorious shall inherit all these things, and I will be God to him and he shall be My son.

8¬†But as for the cowards¬†and¬†the ignoble¬†and¬†the contemptible¬†and¬†the cravenly lacking in courage¬†andthe cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd¬†and¬†adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)‚ÄĒ[all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. This is the second death.

9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven final plagues (afflictions, calamities) came and spoke to me. He said, Come with me! I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.

10 Then in the Spirit He conveyed me away to a vast and lofty mountain and exhibited to me the holy (hallowed, consecrated) city of Jerusalem descending out of heaven from God,

11 Clothed in God’s glory [in all its splendor and radiance]. The luster of it resembled a rare and most precious jewel, like jasper, shining clear as crystal.

12 It had a massive and high wall with twelve [large] gates, and at the gates [there were stationed] twelve angels, and [on the gates] the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel were written:

13 On the east side three gates, on the north side three gates, on the south side three gates, and on the west side three gates.

14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundation [stones], and on them the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

15 And he who spoke to me had a golden measuring reed (rod) to measure the city and its gates and its wall.

16¬†The city lies in a square, its length being the same as its width. And he measured the city with his reed‚ÄĒ12,000 stadia (about 1,500 miles); its length and width and height are the same.

17¬†He measured its wall also‚ÄĒ144 cubits (about 72 yards) by a man‚Äôs measure [[c]of a cubit from his elbow to his third fingertip], which is [the measure] of the angel.

18 The wall was built of jasper, while the city [itself was of] pure gold, clear and transparent like glass.

19 The foundation [stones] of the wall of the city were ornamented with all of the precious stones. The first foundation [stone] was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony (or white agate), the fourth emerald,

20 The fifth onyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst.

21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each separate gate being built of one solid pearl. And the main street (the broadway) of the city was of gold as pure and translucent as glass.

22 I saw no temple in the city, for the Lord God Omnipotent [Himself] and the Lamb [Himself] are its temple.

23 And the city has no need of the sun nor of the moon to give light to it, for the splendor andradiance (glory) of God illuminate it, and the Lamb is its lamp.

24 The nations shall walk by its light and the rulers and leaders of the earth shall bring into it their glory.

25 And its gates shall never be closed by day, and there shall be no night there.

26 They shall bring the glory (the splendor and majesty) and the honor of the nations into it.

27 But nothing that defiles or profanes or is [d]unwashed shall ever enter it, nor anyone who commits abominations (unclean, detestable, morally repugnant things) or practices falsehood, but only those whose names are recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

JUDGEMENT will FALL on those REBELLIOUS to God’s ways. HIS GRACE and chances only last so LONG. No more mixed seeds in this season. You will choose. IT will be 100% GOD or not. There is a fine line between GOOD and EVIL which means there is a fine LINE between GOD and the enemy. IF you are led to read it, in 2010 GOD used me to write a book called “Walking the LINE Between GOD and satan.” ¬†I pray He uses it tremendously in your lives.

and  http://bookstore.authorhouse.com/Products/SKU-000249071/Walking-the-Line-Between-God-and-Satan.aspx

The windows that have been open for those in defiance of Grace and Mercy are closing. GOD will not allow HIS COGS to suffer forever. It is time to come humbly before HIM repenting on behalf of you and others. It is time to FORGIVE and remember that spirits and involved. WE fight not against flesh and blood as it is written.

The WAR has BEGUN

This morning as GOD awoke me, 4 hours after sleeping, for the first time in months without assistance; THANK GOD for that it was placed into my spirit to write about the WAR. This is a topic that has been discussed A LOT. Believe me when I say it will be beat to DEATH. Quite literally I mean that. It is the one subject matter that cannot be discussed enough.

We are at a place where people are TAKING positions in the ARMY. Are you in GOD’s ARMY?

This last week there has been an increased intensity. I would say a NEW FIRE. Up till now we have been, many of us warriors experiencing “friendly fire.” That is when people who seem to be friends are used to throw darts. In THIS level we are experiencing “Unfriendly fire.” It is directly from HELL. ¬†But here is the wonderful thing. There are heavenly warriors being used to deflect it from you. THAT is JUST how much YOU are LOVED.

 

I am definitely walking out the HUMAN aspect of this journey. Honestly I would LOVE to stay in the spirit 100%. But, GOD told me just recently I must embrace through HIM being a Human. That, it does not have to be a weakness. Nor, does it need to be a license to sin. It was very eye opening to me. For years I had hated with a passion being human. Finally I can accept it as PART of the process.

 

It does not mean we LIVE in the BROKENNESS or that WE stay wounded. But, we must become very aware that getting wounded is NOT a failure. It is simply part of the healing process. Look at the LIFE of JESUS our holy brother. HE was wounded for our transgressions, NOT His own. We need not worship the wounds. THAT is the place of WAR. Many of us have been bound by the SPIRIT of EMOTION for years.

We NEED very DEEP healing. The enemy will try hard to use those wounds to KILL us, inflict more pain, torture us, torment us.  When WE is spoken of it refers to not only our family, that is growing in GOD, but the BODY of CHRIST as a WHOLE. GOD is saddened by the many warriors and leaders in what the world sees as high positions not listening. Not only that, but not hearing in many instances and the blatant ignoring of correction.

If we cannot sit at the FEET of JESUS in each other, at the feet of the HEAVENLY FATHER and HOLY SPIRIT, what good are we? Yes, GOD can use us but not nearly as effective as HE could otherwise. As much as this grieves GOD, you have to know HE sees the bigger picture. Thank GOD he does not STAY in anger or disappointment. Neither should we. But how often do we live there, or does it stay hidden.

The battles, all the mini ones that sure did not seem miniature, have ALL led up to this place. THIS WAR. There have been world wars and LOTS of rumors of WAR too. BUT THIS is different. THIS is the WAR of the HEAVENLIES coming against the EARTH. THIS is what we have prayed for. LET’s REJOICE! Is it easy? NOPE Does it suck at us and often feel like LIFE is being sucked out of us? YEP

GOD is separating US….HE is doing it. There are some walking away from people calling it GOD when it is NOT GOD directly, but may simply be permitted by HIM. Remember HE uses everything, yet HE excuses NOTHING. NEVER hold onto personally what GOD deserves to have released. THIS is a HARD LESSON.

Some have to physically die to achieve surrender. I know, I have a few times. The POINT of this post is to remind you that GOD WINS the WAR. There are many who read the blog. They think we are unaware, or that GOD is. Some of them think they are getting away with the evils they attempt. But even that is a LIE. GOD sees ALL….HE LOVE US ALL until, that place comes when HE cannot anymore because we won’t receive it.

defeat

 

This is posted to say one thing…..EVEN if you have been ONE of them. GOD can change that. He is waiting to, in the WINGS. ~

So here is the question of the hour? What is your position in the WAR? YOU might have many hats. I know I do and WE do. But, KNOW what GOD has called you to DO. One thing I know for certain. WE are ALL CALLED to share HIS LOVE. THAT is what WINS THE WAR. ūüėČ

Revelation 12:7-11 ESV

Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world‚ÄĒhe was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, ‚ÄúNow the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.

Psalm 100:1-5 ESV

A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

Genesis 1:1 ESV

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

1 Peter 3:1-22 ESV

Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, when they see your respectful and pure conduct. Do not let your adorning be external‚ÄĒthe braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear‚ÄĒ but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands,

John 11:35 ESV

Jesus wept.

Exodus 17:16 ESV

Saying, ‚ÄúA hand upon the throne of the¬†Lord! The¬†Lord¬†will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.‚ÄĚ

I want to say one more thing. I was not going to, but I believe I am supposed to. Sarah Elizabeth is NOT a casualty in THIS WAR. She is a HEROINE, a HOLY ONE. God used her and still does today. Her part is not finished. It is FAR from FINISHED. It simply changed directions from the earth to PARADISE. I am so beyond words grateful for the time David and I and ALL who enjoyed GOD in her had on earth in a tangible way. NOW, we must learn to enjoy the intangible. HIS GLORY is often BIRTHED and RESURRECTED there. ~

BULLETPROOF

Before getting into the post today, I feel led to mention that Sarah Elizabeth’s testimony is on the page under God’s Grace faces Us. It was put in the comment section, mainly because my husband is the tech person, and it was the only way I could post it without his assistance. ūüėČ Love to ALL of YOU. May this be a Blessing unto GOD for you. ~

FORGIVE….not because anyone deserves it but simply because GOD needs us to, over and over as many times as it takes. KEEP on FORGIVING. It is a part of this process. IT damages and destroys enemy plans. Keep on forgiving, it is simply part of LIVING in GOD’s LOVE. ~ GOD alone is worth it.

l38187-ak-47-bullet-69210

 

On around four hours of sleep, roughly I was awoken today. But, the point is GOD who created me, awoke me. I will not try and stifle the challenges in what my husband and I are enduring. I won’t try and compare or contrast it with anything either. But, what I will say is it is something that in order to survive, you MUST have GOD inside. There are many people who walk down this path. In fact, last night at a Steven Curtis Chapman concert, we heard about and could relate to, the pain, the dark places that hunt you when you are simply just trying to crawl, let alone walk THIS out with GOD.

A few days ago, early in the morning when my husband and I were chatting, GOD was very present and speaking. He showed us a compass as a reminder that HE is our direction. He showed us a gold course and reminded us lovingly that with HIM, we always get a hole in ONE. the ONE who created us and LOVE us, regardless of the ODDS of the world, will prevail every single time. No matter how it seems, HE and HIS LOVE NEVER ever Fail.

God revealed that part of this, is the process of becoming bulletproof in GOD. He didn’t take Sarah Beth away. She chose to go. I mean, who could blame her? I have many times kicked myself for not going with her. But, if I had, it would have been defying GOD. We need to really SEE the hurting. Those who are carrying heavy burdens and pain. In fact, GOD says, “who will bind up the wounded?” Someone mentioned to me that this year is ALL about SOULS. I don’t dispute that. But, would add this year is ALL about healing and FREEDOM as we WALK in deliverance through HIS LOVE.

Part of the process of GOD saving a soul is compassion. Without that, people whom GOD loves and created do NOT receive the truth. They choose to worship their wounds, because no one has told them not to. It does not matter how HIGH up God puts us, we must always stay humbled before HIM. Being bulletproof is something that happens when constant and consistent surrender continues to be put in practice, unto our awesome GOD.

Many people are scared of bullets, of canons, of bombs, earthquakes, disasters that are natural according to the world yet supernatural to GOD. Yet, we should not be. We are both DEAD and ALIVE. The enemy cannot kill us of we are in Christ, harbored in HIM not as a fugitive but as a captive who has been set FREE. We should come to a place where our faith in HIS abilities far exceeds any amount of FEAR that WE can FEEL or that can be put on us.

Yet, here is the question. What will it take to get us there? Long ago, He showed us that it takes, what it takes. He reminded me recently after coming of out of the darkness, that He apologized to me in 2011. God, my father, brother and Heavenly everything said sorry to me. He said,” if there was any other way, around the pain, suffering and agony we would have taken it together. ” These words ring out to me. They are a CALL out of the darkness. When the enemy points his guns at us, or provokes us to spiritually throw stones at each other, we must seek God’s FACE. Every single time, when we DO, the LORD Roars on our behalf, and the enemies plans come crashing down in defeat. For GOD alone gets the VICTORY and GLORY.

Does this mean we will never fall for an enemy plot? NO! What it means is simply this. God’s GRACE is sufficient. In that place where it feels like we have fallen farther than we could ever go, GOD is there. He even makes HIS bed in Sheol. We have only glimpsed the HEART of GOD. It is not religion that will be the entry path to salvation. It is simply HIS LOVE, HIS TRUTH, and HIS purposes and plans. It is relationship with GOD alone that brings release from the HEAVENS.

While GOD was using us to share butterfly’s story yesterday, we truly were enveloped by the presence of GOD. There were people who were sent to that concert last night to cause trouble, but they did not succeed. The enemy sends people to create problems. But, GOD sends HIS GLORY to cause those plans to be burnt up by the HOLINESS and presence of GOD. You see part of GOD making us BULLETPROOF is about Crucifixion. Our physical and mental process that GOD gifts unto us so that we can be more in tune with HIS process. This beautiful yet at times horrendous blessing in disguise that is a catalyst for many others to follow, can only be given by GOD.

GOD is our holy SOAP. His blood was shed so that we could REST in HIS fighting through in and around us. HE is the Greatest WARRIOR. He makes us Heroes in HIM. ~

 

I will never ever forget the time on the 25th of November Just 1 day before the day we took Sarah Beth to the hospital, when GOD spoke BLESSING. My heart dropped to the pit of my very SOUL hearing it. I cried out and said, “Father, there are times that at first I don’t like or even enjoy your blessing. But, I will receive it because I do know that your purpose is much greater and that you waste not an ounce of any pain or suffering. ” He told me, ” You are about to get blessed.” Both is preparation, and on some level in warning. GOD knows what will come. The good, bad and UGLY He knows.

But, make no mistake that HIS blessings far out way the challenges of the world in which we reside. HIS ways are so much better than ours. He is unlimited and in HIS ways and timing HE will do exactly what HE has promised as long as YOU are willing, ready and able to receive the BLESSING of GOD. So, will you count the cost and realize that HE has need of you? Will you endure being used, in some cases abused, cast aside, mocked, and persecuted to the nth degree? Or would you rather miss the GLORY of GOD? Sit idly by and not be part of it, or surrender completely even your children, which to some are prize possessions. To GOD they are HIS treasures, WE are HIS COGS. But, in order for HIM to make us Children of GOD Supers, we must give HIM ALL.

We must take a stand against darkness. Ask GOD to strip it from you. Truly, look around the home you have been given and seek HIS LIGHT to permeate anything NOT pleasing to HIM. There are many times I do not please people, but as long as I and you stay surrendered with a repentant heart and MOST of ALL open for correction we will ALWAYS be pleasing to GOD. Not from a place of striving, simply from a place of being HIS child. RESTING in the peace that NO weapon formed will prosper. The LION of JUDAH will ROAR and quite simply the enemies will scatter. Glory be to our mighty GOD. We praise not because of the circumstances, but simply because we know that we know that we know that our GOD is far above them, and so must be be. Hidden under HIS wings fragile as a newborn baby, resurrected each day and healing with every breath. LORD, make us bulletproof whatever and however it must be. We LOVE you.

Romans 5:3-5 ESV

More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

James 1:2-4 ESV

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

1 Peter 4:12-19 ESV

Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name.

Revelation 21:4 ESV

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.‚ÄĚ

Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.

2 Timothy 3:12 ESV

Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted

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

Honored and Privileged to be loved by GOD. Walking, running, crawling, and even swimming in the ocean of emotions we face. Yes, we have an enemy. yes, HE is defeated. God will teach us about the spirits, but we must NOT ignore the wounded any longer. We cannot assume that emotion is a spirit. We must ask GOD to minister through us, so that HIS ways are completed and WE are not made into idols. Who will bind up the wounded? Who will tend to those in captivity? Who will allow GOD to take first place in their lives? Is it YOU? He is standing there waiting and many windows are closing quickly. Don’t miss this incredible MOVE of GOD. Choose to let HIM make you bulletproof, no matter what.

When Darkness Calls

For days, in fact since the third of this month, I have been unable to speak much. When I woke, and it was put in my spirit, and on my heart to write today, I wasn’t exactly jumping up and out bed. I thought, look at what is going on in the world. How is what I and we are enduring even important?

http://www.openbible.info/topics/darkness

 

John 1:5 ESV

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

1 John 1:5-7 ESV

This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

John 11:10 ESV

But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.‚ÄĚ

Luke 1:79 ESV

To give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.‚ÄĚ

Acts 26:18 ESV

To open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

John 3:19-21 ESV

And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.‚ÄĚ

1 Thessalonians 5:5 ESV

For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness.

Psalm 139:12 ESV

Even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you.

Colossians 1:13 ESV

He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son,

2 Corinthians 6:14 ESV

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?

John 8:12 ESV

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‚ÄúI am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.‚ÄĚ

1 John 2:8-11 ESV

At the same time, it is a new commandment that I am writing to you, which is true in him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining. Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness. Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

Revelation 9:2 ESV

He opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft.

Hebrews 12:18 ESV

For you have not come to what may be touched, a blazing fire and darkness and gloom and a tempest

Matthew 8:12 ESV

While the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.‚ÄĚ

Ephesians 5:8 ESV

For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Isaiah 50:10 ESV

Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the voice of his servant? Let him who walks in darkness and has no light trust in the name of theLord and rely on his God.

Romans 1:21 ESV

For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

1 Peter 2:9 ESV

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Matthew 25:30 ESV

And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

Isaiah 9:2 ESV

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shined.

1 John 1:6 ESV

If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.

2 Peter 2:4 ESV

For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment;

 

Romans 13:12 ESV

The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.

 

Yet, it is to GOD. Our very breath is important to Him. He doesn’t focus on the wrong, but rejoices in the right. In my life, I have truly never been so weary. For weeks I have cried out to GOD from my soul. It isn’t just because of the death of our only child. It is so much more than that.

 

Darkness has been calling. In fact, everywhere I have looked, there has been darkness. Or, so I thought. It came through friends who were hurt, lashing out and assuming. It arrived through memories. For all intensive purposes that darkness was death.

942742_457036947717218_2111772965_n

 

 

 

But yesterday something happened. God used someone who didn’t know me, to reach out into the darkness and sincerely offer HIS LOVE. Yes, many have been praying. But, so few have reached out. I know it’s scary to watch someone suffer. when we are so wounded ourselves, we often want to or choose to run away. I hold no ill will towards anyone, or harbor any unforgiveness. I simply thank GOD that He used someone.

 

 

THIS is where HIS Glory is birthed. It comes into the darkness. It comes slowly and gently and at times painfully, it is formed here. Without really knowing it, I have been seeking God for answers. I have been sitting with HIM for weeks, just allowing GOD alone to stroke my shower and bathe me in LOVE.

 

 

I have been screaming on the inside. My body started just a few days ago to tremble. I thought, it’s just the grief. But, it wasn’t it was and IS the presence of GOD. I feared He was gone, had left me. Yet, all along, He was with me.

 

 

This is a very personal entry. It is very self reflective, from HIS perspective. Because this morning, I saw GOD crying. I am not saying I have seen GOD per se. But, I have seen what we know as GOD. I saw images of HIS children suffering.

 

 

Yesterday, I watched something. You see, I know the WORD of GOD. I know it deep within. But, having said that, what I didn’t know is GOD in us is HIS word. He wants to LOVE us with it. He desires to HEAL us with it. There is a balm is Gilead. There is healing in HIS hands.

 

 

The things in this world will look really bad. Darkness will call, and sometimes we will answer. But, I am very thankful to GOD alone that, even when we do, HIS LOVE will not end. Yes, we may not feel it the same way, until we come to HIM in TRUTH and realness seeking HIS FORGIVENESS.

 

 

I used to speak of GOD resurrecting me. In fact, I would say daily that He does this. But somehow over the last few months, I had forgotten that He does this in sorrow too.  I am beyond words grateful for the brothers and sisters who reach out even when the darkness is thick. Those who take time to cut through all the rigamortis.

 

 

God is using many people. He is, in this season. He is even using people trapped and confined in darkness. For a few days, I didn’t post anything. Because, I didn’t have anything nice to say. I simply prayed silently. Most often not even knowing. I was reminded that sometimes the most effective prayers come in the form of tears.

Years ago when mom passed into God’s arms, I wrote a power. It was called “the Rainbows”

I don’t remember much about it, except this. It was written after seeing my first double rainbow. I remember looking at it and recognizing the reflection. It is an illusion, that comes from fragments of light. Yet, it is beautiful. It captures just how we look in reflection to GOD. Backwards, faded, yet Glorious in His LIGHT. ~ like a mother and a child….or a father and a child. WE are the FAMILY of GOD.

 

 

This morning, shortly after God woke me, I got a phone call. I didn’t answer. I simply handed it to my husband. David, though half asleep answered. The person said they had the wrong number. I thought, “wow that is what happens when GOD takes the phone call.” It was something so simple yet, so profound. when the enemy calls, GOD says, “wrong number.”

 

 

Many people in ministry, well meaning people kept telling me to read the word every day. Yet, I couldn’t focus. I couldn’t read. I couldn’t even listen. I could just watch. I could just stare. I could just be. All I kept hearing from GOD was this. “Rest my child. REST in me.”

 

 

For days, until yesterday in fact, when David and i prayed at night, only HE would pray. I would simply agree. Even last night I could barely come up with anything to say. So, I mumbled, thank you.

 

 

I hope somehow in the midst of this nothingness, this darkness, GOD is still using us. I have wondered how He could? Yet, again I know that NOTHING is impossible for HIM. I thank GOD for reminding me that she, our butterfly is not gone. She is simply more hidden than before.

 

 

I thank HIM for the honor of being able to shoulder pain for others, even while walking through the Valley of the Shadow o Death. I thank GOD that in the time where I could have caused great harm, I did not. I forgive the many people involved, because even if they think they knew what they were trying to do, they did not.

I CAN LOVE AGAIN

THE DEAD WILL NOT CREATE DEFEAT

IT IS ONLY THOSE WHO LOVE FROM HEAVEN

WHO WILL MAKE THIS WORLD COMPLETE

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

 

 

GOD walked with me, hand in hand for 18 days. He was with me in bed as I just sat and often wept. He broke me out of many a prison. Thank GOD for HIS Grace, mercy and love to endure even the darkest most cavernous darkness.

Thank you for the sunshine. Thank you for the rain. Thank you for the JOY. Thank you for the pain. Thank you that YOU alone have overcome, again.

REMEMBER that GOD never promised NO PAIN and SUFFERING in the PROmISED LAND. He simply said, the promises are kept there. ~

 

 

 

DARKNESS will CALL. LET GOD Answer.

 

 

I have wanted to scream, but couldn’t. I have wanted to curse GOD, but wouldn’t. I have wanted to HATE, but cannot. Because deep within I know that when darkness calls, even on the phone, that GOD will overcome. He already has. We simply must receive it.

In His grace and GLORY,

E and Family

Seek HIS Face, and NOT His hand

This morning is the 25th of January. The number 25 represents BLESSING. Oh my we are in NEED of that as HIS COGS. The number 1 is New Beginnings. So we are in the month of new beginnings. Many people look at us wondering why we have JOY. They ask why are you Jubilant? Perhaps, because they don’t understand the TRUE JOY of GOD. It is NOT based on circumstances. It is based on HIS LOVE, and how much of it WE are willing to receive.

Lions_Eyes_ezr

Our family chooses daily to become SATURATED in the LOVE of GOD. It is the most AMAZING, WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, PRECIOUS, HEALING, PHENOMENAL, INDESCRIBABLE gift that we can enjoy. It is FREE for us to receive because JESUS, the son of GOD and our brother, died on a CROSS over 2,000 years ago. He did this so HIS seed could be planted once again. It was planted when He was birthed as a human. Birthing can happen so many times. He is birthed again through us, HIS brothers and sisters daily as well.

GOD is NOT limited by ANYTHING!!!! Yesterday, I was really being challenged. My earthly father passed from this earth. The challenge came in seeing how everyone responded. When people pass on, no one knows how to take it. We stand not in judgement in any way, shape of form. Because we know how it feels to be judged. We simply keep praying and praising. GOD will finally change things. When He does it will be JUST the time it is needed. He is ALWAYS on time. God is never early, or late. HE alone is perfect!!!

I thank GOD that even though it looks like the enemy is winning, he is NOT!!!!!! I am not a religious person. I don’t look at the situation and try and always make it about GOD. It just IS about HIM. So, no matter how people think He can be removed, He cannot. People may look at me or us and think we do this, but the fact is GOD just keeps our focus on HIM. When we begin to receive that WE are truly LOVED and we cannot earn HIS grace, mercy or peace which comprise HIS LOVE, then and ONLY then can we walk in HIS FREEDOM!!!!!!!!

SO, I personally repent for myself and others in the body of Christ. We have been and many are being affected by things surrounding them or ¬†others around them, and also for allowing my focus to be removed from GOD, even for a moment. I ask HIM to forgive me and release me from burdens I don’t need to try and carry. I come out of agreement with ANY offenses. ¬†I choose today to stay DIVORCED from the enemy of our souls. In Jesus Holy name and blood we affirm our GOD who is comprised of our Heavenly Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. GLORY to our mighty and awesome GOD!!!!! IJN AMEN

We_must_seek_His_face our-lives-are-in-the-hands-of-god

We have to seek HIS face and NOT His hand. God is not here to give us a hand out. He is here to give us a hand UP out of the pit. Will you take HIS hand and climb out of the quicksand??? This is a daily act and sometimes moment to moment as well. Please FORGIVE yourself and all the people the enemy has used to wound you. It begins with just that one thing. When we choose forgiving GOD moves so mightily?

Don’t we ALL need something Glorious to happen? DO you not know how much GOD wants that too? He LOVES ¬†LOVES LOVES to bless us, HIS kids. DEATH is not the end of everything. It is simply like high school to college. It is similar to traveling abroad to a NEW land. It is a NEW start and a NEW BEGINNING and more work than we could ever imagine in the holiest of ways, as that new life starts. When we truly understand that WE are already dead in CHRIST in the sense that, WE died with HIM, we fear NOT any DEATH. WE are ALIVE in HIM because HE LIVES in US and we have the JOY of being resurrected through HIM as well.

24285_770854009609356_78210219_n

We have seen Resurrections and been them. Our eyes cannot ever be the same. Our prayer is that GOD reveal HIS truth to the many who are locked into deception. We have been there, and still surrender daily. We are NOT in any way better than anyone else. GOD is though, and HE alone will turn situations around. GOD does not HAVE to include us. He simply does because HE LOVES US!!!!!

So are you seeking HIS FACE so that YOU will recognize it? Because soon THAT will be even more necessary than it used to be. The windows of HIS GLORY are open for everyone wanting to receive. BUT, there will be a time when HIS windows close. LORD, have your way in our lives. Teach us more and more about who YOU are and transform us in the process.

In HIS Spirit and TRUTH

Now it would be so easy for us to give credit to the enemy from a place of bitterness, and pain. We have seen many just locked in prisons, some who know and some who do not.  But the fact is, the victory is in HIS LOVE!!!! It is through praising GOD!!!! We have been those people locked up within ourselves.

download

It was and IS His LOVE, Grace, Mercy and PEACE. We have been enjoying in HIM lots of LOVE and LAUGHTER which is just beautiful. Are the spirits mad? Well, YES. But, that is ok. I and my husband do fall down, and spiritually skin our knees. But, that does NOT mean GOD LOVES us any less. In fact, HIS discipline comes from the most beautiful place ever. It is because HE LOVES us, HIS children, HIS precious COGS. (Children of God Supers)

280267863_640 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA goldenmessg

It is TIME to WORSHIP in spirit and truth. DEATH is not the final destiny. Death cannot stop TRUE LOVE!!! There is no LOVE more TRUE than that of our mighty GOD!!!! Hallelujah!!!! He is faithful!!!

There are many who have a form of godliness but not much truth therein. We have people who are in a family that are so bound up by unforgiveness. ¬†This causes constant tension, and constant STRIFE. ¬†The same people who used to offer in kindness and LOVE, to help and assist, have become so wounded that they just don’t even bother anymore.

LORD, bind up all of our wounds, of every single person who is willing to receive it. Many of us have given and given and given, and we have forgotten to receive. It is like we have forgotten how. I ask you awesome GOD to remind us. Because when we are not receiving and not giving we are simply exisiting.  Which is really not honoring to GOD, and it is not much different from just being zombies.

The_Urantia_Book_Word_Cloud_194_375 true-worshippers-god-is-our-victory2-1024x768

I thank GOD and praise HIM for even this kind of persecution coming out. So many are thinking they are ok, and settled and cannot be touched. But GOD. Soon, you will see that if you do not sincerely worsip HIM in spirit and truth, and DRINK Him in, through communion with HIM, only destruction will find you.

John 4:23-24 ESV

But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.‚ÄĚ

Matthew 15:9 ESV

In vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.‚Äô‚ÄĚ

Hebrews 13:15 ESV

Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.

John 4:23 ESV

But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.

Revelation 20:4 ESV

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.

 

Revelation 13:8 ESV

And all who dwell on earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain.

WE are NEW creations in Christ!!!! So are we gonna BE just that, or hold onto the OLD? Because THIS is what happens when FATHER GOD makes us new through HIS son and our brother JESUS and the Holy Spirit.

newman00

 

In our lives it would be easier to choose pain, but in actuality when you begin to see that ONLY more pain follows the “easiest choice” becomes what looks like the HARDEST one.

Choose to worship HIM in SPIRIT and TRUTH. When we worship through HIM then and ONLY then does HIS GLORY totally reign down.

In His Grace and Glory,

THE SKY IS FALLING!

his morning when I woke, I had gotten distinctly that it was time to write abt what’s next. The warnings have been sent out, and many refuse to submit to GOD. They refuse to let GOD be in complete sovereignty of their lives. Is GOD the KING of your world? Or is He only a savior. That by definition is one who saves and fixes things when they get really bad. ¬†Am not by any means saying that being a savior is not important. But, even more important is allowing GOD to rule in ALL we partake of.

images

As a child we all heard the story of Chicken Little. This little creature, in fear believed the sky was falling. Is that how it seemed? Well, YES. In this season the sky will be actually FALLING because GOD’s GLORY will invade, from the HEAVENS to earth. Now know something, when this happens, as first it feels like ALL HELL breaks loose. In our flesh, because we are on a human journey, it can BURN. It can hurt, ache, and just generally feel uncomfortable. Remember that our FLESH is not forever.

the sky is falling

When it feels like your whole world has ended, and it will, probably a few times, CRY out to GOD. SEEK HIS ways and HIS TRUTH. In fact, DO IT NOW, because if not NOW then when the horrific stuff arrives, you will feel blindsided. I thank GOD that HIS Heaven is open, eventhough it feels intense, and requires pain like we never knew we could endure.

I thank GOD for HIS GLORY that is falling down around us. Blessings will FALL, and so will challenges. Whom do we TRUST? Whom do we FEAR? Whom do we LOVE and worship??? In our flesh we could be so angry with GOD. But, what good would that do. It’s not like recent events had no preparation. Do we grieve, of course we do. This child though, is not our world. We honored and still do, GOD in her. Just now, in a different way. The sky is truly FALLING and people better get ready.

Cause one day soon, A HOLY earthquake is gonna hit the earth and TOPPLE all in it’s way that is NOT of GOD.

Mark 13

Amplified Bible (AMP)

13 And as [Jesus] was coming out of the temple [[a]area], one of His disciples said to Him, Look, Teacher! Notice the sort and quality of these stones and buildings!

2 And Jesus replied to him, You see these great buildings? There will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be loosened and torn down.

3 And as He sat on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple [[b]enclosure], Peter and James and John and Andrew asked Him privately,

4 Tell us when is this to take place and what will be the sign when these things, all [of them], are about to be accomplished?

5 And Jesus began to tell them, Be careful and watchful that no one misleads you [about it].

6 Many will come in [[c]appropriating to themselves] the name [of Messiah] which belongs to Me [[d]basing their claims on the use of My name], saying, I am [He]! And they will mislead many.

7 And when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not get alarmed (troubled and frightened); it is necessary [that these things] take place, but the end is not yet.

8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines and calamities. This is but the beginning of the [e]intolerable anguish and suffering [only the first of the [f]birth pangs].

9 But look to yourselves; for they will turn you over to councils, and you will be beaten in the synagogues, and you will stand before governors and kings for My sake as a testimony to them.

10 And the good news (the Gospel) must first be preached to all nations.

11 Now when they take you [to court] and put you under arrest, do not be anxious beforehand about what you are to say [g]nor [even] meditate about it; but say whatever is given you in that hour and at[h]the moment, for it is not you who will be speaking, but the Holy Spirit.

12 And brother will hand over brother to death, and the father his child; and children will take a stand against their parents and [have] them put to death.

13 And you will be hated and detested by everybody for My name’s sake, but he who patiently perseveres and endures to the end will be saved ([i]made a partaker of the salvation by Christ, and delivered [j]from spiritual death).

14¬†But when you see the abomination of desolation¬†mentioned by Daniel the prophet¬†standing where it ought not to be‚ÄĒ[and] let the one who reads take notice¬†and¬†consider¬†and¬†understand¬†and¬†heed [this]‚ÄĒthen let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

15 Let him who is on the housetop not go down into the house nor go inside to take anything out of his house;

16 And let him who is in the field not turn back again to get his mantle (cloak).

17 And alas for those who are pregnant and for those who have nursing babies in those days!

18 Pray that it may not occur in winter,

19¬†For at that time there will be such affliction (oppression and tribulation) as has not been from the beginning of the creation which God created until this particular time‚ÄĒand¬†[k]positively never will be [again].

20 And unless the Lord had shortened the days, no human being would be saved (rescued); but for the sake of the elect, His chosen ones (those whom He [l]picked out for Himself), He has shortened the days.

21 And then if anyone says to you, See, here is the Christ (the Messiah)! or, Look, there He is! do not believe it.

22 False Christs (Messiahs) and false prophets will arise and show signs and [work] miracles to deceive and lead astray, if possible, even the elect (those God has chosen out for Himself).

23 But look to yourselves and be on your guard; I have told you everything beforehand.

24 But in those days, after [the affliction and oppression and distress of] that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light;

25 And the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.

26 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great (kingly) power and glory (majesty and splendor).

27 And then He will send out the angels and will gather together His elect (those He has [m]picked out for Himself) from the four winds, from the farthest bounds of the earth to the farthest bounds of heaven.

28 Now learn a lesson from the fig tree: as soon as its branch becomes tender and it puts forth its leaves, you recognize and know that summer is near.

29 So also, when you see these things happening, you may recognize and know that He is near, at [the very] door.

30 Surely I say to you, this generation ([n]the whole multitude of people living at that one time) positively will not perish or pass away before all these things take place.

31 Heaven and earth will perish and pass away, but My words will not perish or pass away.

32 But of that day or that hour not a [single] person knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

33 Be on your guard [constantly alert], and watch [o]and pray; for you do not know when the time will come.

34 It is like a man [[p]already] going on a journey; when he leaves home, he puts his servants in charge, each with his particular task, and he gives orders to the doorkeeper to be constantly alert andon the watch.

35¬†Therefore watch (give strict attention, be cautious and alert), for you do not know when the Master of the house is coming‚ÄĒin the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrowing, or in the morning‚ÄĒ

36 [Watch, I say] lest He come suddenly and unexpectedly and find you asleep.

37 And what I say to you I say to everybody: Watch (give strict attention, be cautious, active, and alert)!

The COST of TRUE Love

Tonight GOD woke me saying, “Daughter of Zion you must release this word.

He says,  On this first day of the YEAR of change, as 14 is Deliverance, my children must be reminded.  They must gently and lovingly be admonished. My babies must remember from whence they came, and will return. There is a COST for TRUE Love says our Heavenly Father. The cost was paid by my son. The battles and full war have been won. In the Heavenlies ALL has taken place. Prepare in me. Know that I alone will cause MY HEAVENS to invade what many of you consider your earth.

I have sent many of my army commanders and generals, even privates to give messages. Heed these warnings beloved Children. The enemy may come LIKE a roaring Lion, but I AM THE LION of JUDAH. I, my son, and the Holy Spirit will light your path. Many of you in the presence of holiness will be cities on the hills. Remember I alone control the storm. REST in ME. Do so like never before. Listen to my voice. Choose MY ways. They are the ONLY ones which bring to LIFE what must come.

I have said 365 times in my word, BE NOT Afraid. My precious ones, there is no NEED for FEAR. It can cause temporary restriction to occur. The winds of HEAVEN are blowing. MY WINDS alone. There will be much GLORY falling down like rain. Watch and observe. Quiet yourselves before me.

Thank you my precious children, especially to those who faithful to me, even unto death. For DEATH cannot stop MY LOVE. It is TRUE. It cannot even delay it. I AM the GREAT I AM and I am bound by nothing. There is no space and time in the Heavens. There is ONLY Beautiful Healing. Come my children, drink of ME, eat of MY MANNA, partake of holy communion with me. Bathe in my anointed oils. Receive my LOVE and NEVER be the same. Keep letting me shower you with my holiness. Know the persecution will appear hotter, but I will never let you be tempted beyond what must be. It will NEVER be more than you can handle through me, and more than I can take care of.

YOU will NEVER BE ALONE!!!!!!!!

LOVE your FATHER who made you via

A Holy DEPARTURE

When I woke up this morning, GOD put it on my heart to again, write about surrender. This season will be earth shaking. Look at for example what our family is enduring. We have just encountered the most gut wrenching, heart breaking, and LIFE changing event anyone could. We released a child back into Heaven. It was done just as God desired it to be. It was NOT easy. It was NOT something that we were, in our flesh overjoyed to do. But, what it was, is and always will be is simple. A HOLY departure.

download (1) arrivals-departures-icon departure

Scripture says, “We are absent from the body but present with the LORD.” This happens when we breathe our final breath here on earth. Yet, most may not be aware of something. When we arrive in Heaven for all eternity, the REAL work begins. The assignments that people have on earth through GOD do not end. It is a holy continuance.

I have a dear sister who went to court recently. She was really nervous, and has not always had a great relationship with GOD. I say those together because anxiety is able to come because of the fear we as humans often encounter. I have seen and am seeing her faith in GOD’s ability to take care of her truly take off. It is like a holy rocket ship!!! God is telling the stuff coming against her that it must GO. She is learning to REST in HIM for whatever comes. As are we ALL to some degree. ūüėČ

This last week as GOD moved in a way we may not fully have expected, and in some ways that we cannot fully understand; A HOLY departure was made. In fact, I would say a few of them combined together. THIS is what UNITY in the bODY of Christ is all about! It is when the GLORY of GOD, which began as the tough stuff, to put it mildly becomes perfectly formed here on earth the way it is in HEAVEN.

(scriptures about HOLY departures)

My husband and our children will always be 100% fastened to GOD. What this is about is simple. It means that when GOD decides something, even if that thing is seemingly terrifying, or excruciating, we submit and surrender to HIM. People ask us often, “How do you have the faith you do?” I would say to them, and still do, “we don’t.” It is GOD who does. See, even our FAITH belongs to HIM alone. I told another beautiful sister, one who was enduring testing how faithful GOD was and is. I told her that He wanted me to share something with her. What it was is this, “my faith dies too.” She began to say, ” if someone like you has that happen, where is the hope?” I said, ” Every time my faith dies, I surrender it to GOD. Then GOD, in HIS infinite LOVE resurrects it.

We are not unique in some respects, and yet are in others. But, what is VERY unique and special is GOD’s design. Every day I thank HIM for continuing to humble us in this process. Truly, how can we be anything but grateful??? If my husband and I were to focus on the circumstances, we would NEVER get out of bed. But, we cannot do this. It does not honor GOD when we do long term. Plus, people partake of HIS fruits through the ministries. They come and take a REST under HIS holy umbrellas. As do we.

Every single thing David and I and even our children share and have shared is available. Meaning, if someone wants to use it and is led by GOD, we say “God ahead!.” Giggles….I typed Go ahead, and He typed GOD. ūüôā Love it!!!! GOD speaks through us. WE are His mouth pieces. WE are HIS mouth prices. Cause there is a HIGH price paid for serving HIM. WE are HIS heaven on earth!!!!!

Today we encourage you to BLESS GOD. Praise HIM to your very soul. If you can’t do this, just keep crying out to HIM and you will get there. We ALL have a choice, no matter what comes. WE have to consistently and constantly chose GOD. No matter how we feel, or what is going on around us.

1 Corinthians 2:13 ESV

And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.

John 1:1 ESV

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Revelation 21:8 ESV

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.‚ÄĚ

James 5:16 ESV

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

Titus 1:2 ESV

In hope of eternal life, which God, who never lies, promised before the ages began

2 Timothy 2:15 ESV

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.

2 Corinthians 5:6-8 ESV

So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

1 Corinthians 2:14 ESV

The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.

 

John 3:16 ESV

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Let GOD cause you to FLY and have as many HOLY DEPARTURES as He will ring. Not to mention as many as He will bring. ūüėČ You did it again GOD, and it was not an oops moment. It was an EEK. An Eternal EverlaSting KINGDOM moment in time. For your LOVE goes beyond ALL space and time. WOW, you amaze me LORD. I am forever changed. I am forever in AWE of you.

His NEW Beginnings ~

Today, I began writing, or should I say typing as God dictated. ūüėČ

Anyway, I had the whole NOTE for FB written, was tagging people and then the laptop went dead. Regardless of why, I was annoyed. My husband said, “don’t worry we will recreate it.” Here are the facts, when we “mess up” God knows, and He has a plan to fix it. he is the KING of resurrection!

I thought WOW that is interesting…after my husband also, led by GOD, reminded me to forgive. He was correct, I did not need to STAY annoyed, irritated or even anger. THAT would have NOT been helpful. Not even a little bit…

So now, I pray GOD will resurrect the wisdom He gave us when working on the original. ūüôā

I recall GOD sowing us that HIS GLORY has invaded us in the past, will again in the present and am sure also in the future. It will do so in a way that makes our jaws drop and your JAWS too.

I recall sharing that FATHER revealed to us a few things. He showed us that when we begin to see through HIS eyes, though space and time may actually be short, they appear LONG. But, it happens in the holiest of ways ūüôā HIS peace consumes US as we surrender!!!

Some people must do so as their bodies are destroyed. God showed us this too. I am not, nor are WE advocating sickness or disease. However, what I can say is when those things come, they can be for various purposes. We have to RELEASE ALL to GOD. If we do NOT surrender ALL to HIM, then indirectly we end up holding those other things as idols above HIM.

With Sarah Beth, I always laid her on the altar of Heaven. Pretty much daily, was reminded, and even now am, that she is HIS child first and ours second. The best parenting advice any of us can receive is just that. A child we are given is for a reason, a season and a lifetime. In this case, her lifetime may have ended on earth, but has only continued with a NEW BEGINNING in Heaven.

Sarah Elizabeth had her own Glory Invasions. They began very early. The 3 to us that are most significant happened at age 3 1/2, 6 1/2 and 8. David and I believe BIRTH begins in the Heavenlies, and it begins at conception. SO, Sarah Elizabeth was actually 8 when she left us, even though her earth b-day was 4 days later.

When we went into Seattle Children’s Hospital with her at 3 1/2 GOD moved so powerfully! We received HIS favor in every way we could possibly ponder. It was AMAZING!!! Then, at 6 1/2 exactly 3 years later we knew it was different. The second time it was just awful, evil, hateful, blatent, horrendous. The whole MOOD and TONE was totally different. We knew it would be a short stay. The third time, the last time, it was mostly like the first with a small amt like the second time. It was tough to discern how long this stay would be. In the end it was 28 days. That fascinates me, because 28 biblically represents Eternal Life.

I believe Sarah Elizabeth was fashioned after the angels. I don’t sense she knew 100% just how powerful GOD was and is in her. But, I am certain she knows it now This kid, wise beyond her years, and earthly age, was used so much. She still is. God uses her to heal us and so many others daily. Please know that when someone passes from this place into Heaven, the real work begins. It is not just a pleasure cruise.

I am so grateful GOD chose us to be Sarah Beth’s parents. Truly, it is an honor, and we are privileged for the time we had here on this earth being loved by GOD through her. ūüôā We must remember as persecution seems to be increasing, what will be targeted is GOD in us. So, we cannot take personal, what is truly about HIM.

 

‚Äėi carry your heart‚Äô by E.E.¬†Cummings

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)

i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

This poem truly is how we feel about our GOD in our princess, treasure and baby girl. Of HIS royal blood she came, and stays. We thank the FATHER in Heaven, our brother JESUS, and the AMAZING Holy SPirit for trusting us with her. Such a JOY to know GOD had  and has HIS way!!!

GOD gets the GLORY in ALL things, one way or another. If it is rough He turns it around. He never spares the R O D – Reversal of Destiny. We have had so many NEW Beginnings and will have many more. LIFE has changed again as we know it.

A dear sister of ours Barbara Gaines told us something today. In October, she watched Sarah Beth while David and I ran an errand. Sarah Beth was talking to her and confided in her. She knew God had a plan, maybe was not 100% happy with it, but in the end, she submitted and received her resurrection. Heaven has a beautiful gift truly ūüôā

She told our dear sister, “Daddy will have to take care of mommy, cause I am going on a trip. The angels are coming to get me. ” I was told this information today and wept. I wept tears of JOY. I am so in AWE of the LOVE of our GOD!!!!! Many have now shared that God showed them what was to come. I am glad, as is David, that only GOD revealed it to us.

God revealed it to us through Sarah Beth. After all was done, we heard her say to us something beautiful. She said, “Mommy, daddy, I tried to come back but I can’t. God needs me more. Forgive me.” Our response was, “baby girl, we are ok with that. ” I then spoke with our doctor. His name, Doctor Spack patched Sarah Beth with God’s guidance as best as he could. But GOD healed her from HIS mercy. Sometimes, the physical body can only endure so much. Glory to GOD for the LOVE of our GOD.

Ecclesiastes 3

Amplified Bible (AMP)

3 To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven:

2 A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to pluck up what is planted,

3 A time to kill and a time to heal, a time to break down and a time to build up,

4 A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5 A time to cast away stones and a time to gather stones together, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

6 A time to get and a time to lose, a time to keep and a time to cast away,

7 A time to rend and a time to sew, a time to keep silence and a time to speak,

8 A time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.

9 What profit remains for the worker from his toil?

10 I have seen the painful labor and exertion and miserable business which God has given to the sons of men with which to exercise and busy themselves.

11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

12 I know that there is nothing better for them than to be glad and to getand do good as long as they live;

13¬†And also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor‚ÄĒit is the gift of God.

14 I know that whatever God does, it endures forever; nothing can be added to it nor anything taken from it. And God does it so that men will [reverently] fear Him [revere and worship Him, knowing that He is].

15 That which is now already has been, and that which is to be already has been; and God seeks that which has passed by [so that history repeats itself].

16 Moreover, I saw under the sun that in the place of justice there was wickedness, and that in the place of righteousness wickedness was there also.

17 I said in my heart, God will judge the righteous and the wicked, for there is a time [appointed] for every matter and purpose and for every work.

18 I said in my heart regarding the subject of the sons of men, God is trying (separating and sifting) them, that they may see that by themselves [under the sun, without God] they are but like beasts.

19 For that which befalls the sons of men befalls beasts; even [in the end] one thing befalls them both. As the one dies, so dies the other. Yes, they all have one breath and spirit, so that a [a]man has no preeminence over a beast; for all is vanity (emptiness, falsity, and futility)!

20 All go to one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.

21 Who knows the spirit of man, whether it goes upward, and the spirit of the beast, whether it goes downward to the earth?

22 So I saw that there is nothing better than that a man should rejoice in his own works, for that is his portion. For who shall bring him back to see what will happen after he is gone?

Footnotes:

  1. Ecclesiastes 3:19¬†Does the Bible really teach that ‚Äúa man has no preeminence over a beast‚ÄĚ? No! The Bible only records that the book of Ecclesiastes says it. Then why is this book in the Bible? Can it possibly be called inspired by God when it makes such ‚Äúunder the sun‚ÄĚ pronouncements, some only partially true, others entirely false? Here is the tested answer: ‚ÄúEvery scripture inspired of God is also profitable for teaching … reproof… correction, for instruction… in righteousness.‚ÄĚ (II Tim. 3:16¬†asv.) The divine purpose in including Ecclesiastes in the Bible is obvious. It gives a startling picture of how fatal it is for even the wisest of men to substitute man‚Äôs ‚Äúwisdom‚ÄĚ for God‚Äôs wisdom, and to attempt to live by it. Solomon‚Äôs reign began with God, gold, and glory. It ended with bafflement, brass, and bewildered acceptance of man‚Äôs having ‚Äúno preeminence over a beast‚ÄĚ!‚ÄĒman, who was made ‚Äúin the image¬†and¬†likeness of God‚ÄĚ (Gen. 1:27) and ‚Äúbut little lower than God [or heavenly beings]‚ÄĚ! (Ps. 8:5.)

OUR GOD is FAITHFUL. He just is….in every way. We are overwhelmed by the LOVE and support and grateful to HIM more than ever. This season as things come and go, we encourage you to SEEK GOD. Do so about ALL things. For example, we do not celebrate many holidays anymore. GOD wants complete holiness. He will settle for nothing less. Let HIM reveal HIS truth to you so you and those you LOVE can walk in HIS FREEDOM.

LION of JUDAH keep roaring…and take good care of our sweet baby girl. WE LOVE YOU ALL and are keeping you ALL uplifted. We thank GOD for every prayer said on our behalf. BLESS the socks off of ALL those who pray mighty GOD. ūüôā
