Step INTO the Fire!



In this world we are constantly bombarded with idols.  They are erected in many forms to lure a people into worshiping the god of this world unknowingly.  There are idols of money, sex and power - what many consider the American dream.  They are mainstreamed through media and projected into the spirit of man.

There is a constant pressure to bow down to these images.  The worship of these idols leads to bondage and destruction.  Unfortunately those who do not know God perish for lack of knowledge.  (Hosea 4:6)

However for those of us who DO know and SERVE the LORD through relationship NOT religion, we are equally faced with the same temptations to bow down to these idols.  Yet we are reminded that although we are in the world, we are NOT of this world (John 15:19)  We are NOT to copy the behavior and customs of this world. (Romans 12:2)  We are a set apart people, a peculiar people called to be Light and Salt in the earth.  A people who raises God's standards - revealing Him and His glory for others to see.

Let It Be Known!!


ARISE PEOPLE OF GOD IN BOLDNESS!  

This morning I was praying for boldness to arise within each of us! Fear and intimidation of man has silenced and paralyzed many. It has kept those from speaking what the LORD has revealed. It has kept those from writing what has been given to release. It has kept those from stepping out in ministry. It has kept many from exercising their spiritual gifts and talents.

THIS IS NOT THE HOUR TO SHRINK BACK IN FEAR.  THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO HIDE AND BE CONTENT WATCHING FROM AFAR.  HOWEVER IT IS THE TIME TO ARISE TO THE TASK WITH BOLDNESS.

Man will always seek your qualifications and question in what authority do you have to do these things just like they interrogated Peter and John:

"And they set the men in their midst and repeatedly demanded, By what sort of power or by what kind of authority did [such people as] you do this [healing]"~ Acts 4:7

Church Walls are Coming Down ~ Saith the LORD


I am sharing as the LORD has lead me to what pertains to the Body of Christ as revealed in a dream I received on 9/16/14.

In the dream, I was in a church building.  The room was very small. The Pastor of the congregation made his acknowledgments of a portrait which I had painted that hung on the wall.  The painting depicted a "circle of prayer".  Then the Pastor proceeded and took an axe to the wall.  As the walls came down, it revealed another room.  It was a large room, bigger than the one we were in.  It was so bright.  There were double doors that led outside as well as a chair and an old church pew.  One of the members shouted "the wall that was torn was made out of wood".   (End of dream)

I then heard  the LORD speak "The Church walls are coming down, The Church walls are coming down.  No longer will my people be confined to the four corners of the walls."

I woke up and immediately asked Holy Spirit to enable me to draw what I saw in the dream. In a matter of minutes I was able to sketch it:


Stones & Planks

I am grateful that we serve a God who loves and knows our heart. He knows our struggles with sin and does not condemn us but empower us by His Spirit to overcome. There are times we walk in the victory and there are moments we don't. For that reason we are instructed to pray "Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:" (Mt. 6:11-13 KJV)



I am thankful that today we are not stoned for ours sins as in the days of old. However today, people throw stones with their words of judgment without knowing a person's walk with the LORD.

Obedience OR Sacrifice?




Sometimes we are faced with very hard decisions that will cost us something. Yet, it has the potential to re-position us where we ought to be in our journey with Christ and in our purpose.

Let me put in this way. As women we LOVE shoes! We don't mind dropping some bills for what we like. So we buy them to please ourselves. Yet when we walk in them, they hurt. But it doesn't stop us from wearing them again because we going to get our money's worth! Here comes the blisters! We put on band-aids hoping it will do the trick. It may relieve for a moment, but eventually the band-aid will come off and now it's bleeding and ten times more painful! So we are faced with a decision: do we get rid of the shoes or do we continue to limp with them?

"Just Come Like a Child..." ~ Abba




"COME LIKE A CHILD..."  These words have been pressed into my spirit more than once in the past few weeks.  Today, I heard them again.  I searched the bible for scriptures and came across these:

But Yeshua said to the, "Let the children come to me and do not forbid them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these." ~ Matthew 19:14

And he said: "Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. ~ Matthew 18:3


Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." ~ Mark 10:15

When I think about a child, I am reminded of their innocence.  Their vulnerability to love unconditionally. Their ability to forgive their offenders quickly and easily - they are merciful.  Their care-free attitude in displaying affection - they are compassionate.   They find joy in the smallest things -  they are content.  Their perception of people is without judgment.   They know how to express themselves - they speak with sincerity of heart.

We have been silenced long enough.  The spirit of fear and intimidation has held us captive!  NO LONGER!  We are decreeing deliverance from such and declaring that courage and boldness be our portion in this hour!

America & The Church - Repent and Return!

 
[As the secretary to President Obama, I was entering the Presidential office when I saw the President with a man who was his personal physical therapist.  The President was undressed with only a white towel wrapped around his waist as he laid on a table having his back massaged.  When I entered the room, he was startled and arose quickly to greet me.  He immediately directed me not to disclose what I saw.  He was very secretive about the therapist and what he was there for.

I happen to glance over to the President's desk and there were piles of books.  There was a small New Testament and a very large and thick book.  I saw the name "Graham" on the spine as the author.  The title of the book was "Psalm 5".  There were several other Christian literature books but my attention was drawn to the NT and the thick book.  However, all the books were vintage.  The President noticed my glance towards the books and he quickly interjected and lead me away to my desk which was in the same room as his.

He again reiterated the importance of not disclosing what I have seen as he pulled out my chair so I can sit down.  He was very cordial.  Moments later there was a man approaching the office and I quickly rose up from my chair and stood by the entrance to keep him from entering because there was no door.  I notified him that the President was not available to meet with him.   The man was adamant in seeing the President as he tried to force his way in but I had blocked him.  Then the President, fully dressed, met us at the entrance where we were standing.  I left.]

THIS DREAM WAS GIVEN TO ME ON 3/14/14  THIS IS PART THREE

"Cry Out for My People" ~ Abba

Earlier this morning I set out to post part three of the message the LORD has given to me. The first was "Slaves in the Promised Land", second was "Subdued by the Spirit of Delilah" and the third was to be released today.  But instead I got distracted in the midst of posting and headed out to run an errand that quite frankly could have waited.

As I was on the road I began to sing a worship song and pray. All of a sudden, I heard "there is an urgency in the spirit".  The words were repeated again "there is an urgency in the spirit"!  What happened next totally broke me.  As I opened my mouth I began to cry out in tongues.  But these tongues were different and as they came forth, I can understand what was being said.  It was a  heart cry, an urgent plea from Abba for His children.  His words were piercing as I heard His voice tremble with compassion and anguish.  I can best liken it to a mother whose child has been kidnapped and pleas for their return.

Subdued by the Spirit of Delilah

We must NOT be ignorant of the enemy's devices.  He does not prey only on our weaknesses but also our strengths.


"After this it came about that he loved a woman in the valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah. The lords of the Philistines came up to her and said to her, "Entice him, and see where his great strength lies and how we may overpower him that we may bind him to afflict him. Then we will each give you eleven hundred pieces of silver." So Delilah said to Samson, "Please tell me where your great strength is and how you may be bound to afflict you."…(Judges 16:4-6) NASB

The New International version says it like this: "See if you can lure him into showing you the secret of his great strength and how we can overpower him so we may tie him up and SUBDUE him. (v.5 emphasis added)
