CLAIM YOUR PRIZE.

GIVING UP RIGHT NOW WOULD BE LIKE GETTING TO THE FINISH LINE AND STOPPING BEFORE YOU BREAK THROUGH THE TAPE. WE ARE RIGHT THERE...STEPS AWAY FROM VICTORY; WHY GIVE UP NOW? LET'S GO ON TO SEE WHAT THE END WILL BE. IN TIMES PAST I HAVE QUESTIONED GOD ABOUT SITUATIONS IN MY LIFE, NOT WITH SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS, BUT AS A CHILD ASKING A PARENT WHY? AND GOD TOLD ME TORRY, WHEN I DO BLESS YOU; THERE WILL BE BLESSING AFTER BLESSING; SO MUCH SO IT WILL ALMOST SCARE YOU AND I FEEL THAT IS WHAT SEASON WE ARE IN.SOMEONE IN CHURCH A FEW WEEKS AGO USED MILITARY TERMS AND SAID WE NEEDED TO BE OBEDIENT AND IT RANG TRUE TO MY SPIRIT BECAUSE I HAD BEEN REFLECTING ON HOW IN THE OLD TESTAMENT PEOPLE WOULD SEEK GOD AS TO WHETHER THEY WOULD HAVE VICTORY IN BATTLE AND IF THEY OBEYED THE VOICE OF GOD THEY ONLY HAD VICTORIES. OBEY THE VOICE OF GOD. SOMEONE WISE ONCE TOLD ME TO TRUST THE GOD IN YOU. TRUSTING THE GOD IN YOU CAN BE DIFFICULT AT TIMES WHEN YOU LOOK AT PEOPLE WHO SEEM TO HAVE IT TOGETHER AND ARE SAYING SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAN WHAT GOD IS SAYING TO YOU BUT I REMEMBER THE BIBLE SAYING THAT IN THE LAST DAYS IF GOD DIDN'T SHORTEN THE TIME EVEN THE ELECT WOULD BE DECEIVED. IN THIS TIME IT IS IMPORTANT TO DRAW NEAR TO GOD AND HEAR HIM FOR YOURSELF. THE DEVIL HAS ALWAYS TRIED TO SILENCE ME. I HAVE HAD DREAM AFTER DREAM ABOUT TRYING TO TALK BUT NOT HAVING A VOICE. IF GOD DOESN'T TELL ME TO SAY IT OR SHARE IT I WON'T BUT IF HE DOES I WILL SHOUT TO ANYONE THAT WILL HEAR; DON'T LET THE DEVIL SILENCE YOU OR CHANGE YOUR COURSE. STAY IN POSITION; KEEP YOUR LAMP TRIMMED; OBEY GOD... THEN CLAIM YOUR PRIZE.

PHILLIPIANS 3
1.Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.,
2.Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.
3.For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.
4.Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:
5.Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;
6.Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law , blameless.,
7.But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
8.Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
9.And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
10. That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
11. If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
12.Not as though I had already attained , either were already perfect : but I follow after , if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
13.Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended : but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14. I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

LIVING WATER...REPLINISHING

TODAY WHILE IN CHURCH THE SERMON TOUCHED ON PETER WALKING ON THE WATER AND HOW HE WALKED BACK TO THE BOAT WITH JESUS. MY SPIRIT WAS QUICKENED. I BEGAN TO THINK ABOUT SOME THINGS I HAD BEEN GOING THROUGH THIS LAST PAST WEEK. ONE OF THE THINGS SEEMS SMALL BUT I KNEW IT HELD SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE. THIS WEEK I DRANK MORE WATER THAN I HAVE IN A LONG TIME.ITS LIKE MY THIRST WAS UNENDING. I DRANK AND THEN WANTED MORE TRYING TO QUENCH MY THIRST.I THINK ON HOW I HAVE LET MY SPIRIT BECOME DRY. WATERING IT HERE AND THERE. ONE DAY A WHILE BACK; I WENT BY THE WATER AND I TOLD GOD, "I WANT MORE OF YOU" AND GOD SAID "YOU CAN HAVE AS MUCH OF ME AS YOU WANT, I AM A DEEP WELL". THERE IS AN OUTPOUR OF GOD IN THE SPIRIT; GOD IS REPLINISHING AND REFILLING THE DRY PLACES.
MATTHEW 14:15 SAYS: AND WHEN IT WAS EVENING, HIS DISCIPLES CAME TO HIM, SAYING, THIS IS A DESERT PLACE AND THE TIME IS NOW PAST; SEND THE MULTITUDE AWAY, THAT THEY MAY GO INTO THE VILLAGES, AND BUY THEMSELVES VICTUALS.
JESUS SAID TO THEM IN VERSE 16 "THEY NEED NOT DEPART; GIVE THEM TO EAT."
John 6:35 KJV And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger ; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst
GOD TALKED TO ME DURING CHURCH ABOUT THE WEIGHT OF HIS GLORY AND HOW WHEN HIS GLORY IS UPON YOU; YOU HAVE TO GIVE IT OUT; THAT MADE ME THINK ABOUT FLOATING OR "WALKING ON WATER". I WANTED TO KNOW MORE ABOUT WHAT MAKES AN OBJECT FLOAT AND WAS TAKEN BACK TO WHAT I HAD LEARNED IN GRADE SCHOOL...IF AN OBJECT WEIGHS LESS THAN THE AMOUNT OF WATER IT DISPLACES IT WILL FLOAT, "LESS OF ME LORD, AND MORE OF YOU". SO IF I HUMBLE MYSELF AND I AM SUBMERGED IN THE WORD OF GOD AND FILLED WITH HIS SPIRIT MY FLESH WILL WEIGH LESS THAN MY SPIRIT AND I CAN WALK WITH JESUS ON THE WATER. I ALSO THOUGHT ABOUT QUENCHING THE SPIRIT. SOMETIMES IN OUR HUMANESS WE SHRINK OURSELVES AND CONFORM TO BE ACCEPTED. BUT I AM DETERMINED TO HAVE FAITH IN GOD AND LET HIM DO WHAT IT IS HE WANTS TO DO IN ME AND THROUGH ME.

2 CORINTHIANS 4
5.For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants forJesus' sake.
6.For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness , hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
7.But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
8. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed ; we are perplexed , but not in despair ;
9.Persecuted , but not forsaken ; cast down , but not destroyed ;
10.Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
11. For we which live are alway delivered unto death forJesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifestin our mortal flesh.
12.So then death worketh in us, but life in you.
13.We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written , I believed , and therefore have I spoken ; we also believe , and therefore speak ;
14.Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise upus also by Jesus, and shall present us with you
15.For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
16. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish , yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
17.For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18.While we look not at the things which are seen , but at the things which are not seen : for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

2 CORINTHIANS 5
1.For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved , we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
2.For in this we groan , earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:
3.If so be that being clothed we shallnot be found naked.
4.For we that are in this tabernacle do groan , being burdened : not for that we would be unclothed , but clothed upon , that mortality might be swallowed upof life.
5.Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
6.Therefore we are always confident , knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
7. (For we walkby faith, not by sight:)

THY WORD IS A LAMP UNTO MY FEET AND A LIGHT UNTO MY PATH

I HAVE BEEN MAKING AN EFFORT TO STUDY THE BIBLE LATELY. I WAS READING A SCRIPTURE HERE AND THERE BUT I WAS NOT STUDYING. I WAS GOING OVER MY NOTES FROM CHURCH AND THERE WERE A LOT OF NOTES REFERENCING WALKING IN THE SPIRIT. I CAME TO THE PASSAGE TALKING ABOUT A RENEWED MIND AND I NOTICED THAT IT SAID "THE SPIRIT OF YOUR MIND"...
Ephesians 4:23
And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

I THEN BEGAN TO STUDY LIGHT
1 Thessalonians 5
1.But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3.For when they shall say , Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child ; and they shall not escape .
4.But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5.Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6.Therefore let us not sleep , as do others; but let us watch and be sober . 7.For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
8.But let us, who are of the day, be sober , putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
9.For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
10.Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep , we should live together with him.
11.Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do

JOHN 1
1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same wasin the beginning with God.
3 .All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made .
4.In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6 .There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7.The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe .
8. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12.But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13. Which were born , not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14.And the Word was madeflesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth

WARNING

There was an altar call during church. It was a call to cut ungodly ties and to cut off things off, that God had told you to cut off. I have a few things that need to be in order but when God tells me to cut something off I usually cut it off. When God is ready for me to let something go he always gets his point across clearly. As the altar call went forth I began to think over my life and I said well I can't think of anything that God has told me to cut off that I haven't (except for soda). After church I went to my grandmother's house and my children saw someone from my past that said they had been looking for me and she gave them her number. This sounds minor on the surface but the girl from my past is a girl I knew from a church I got involved in that turned out not to be of God. When I realized what it really was, I told them I would not be coming back and I cut off contact except for contact with the girl that I mentioned earlier. Later I began to have dreams about her trying to lead me back and God began to deal with me about cutting off that relationship. I had not seen her for years and today there she was. I know that I am close to something. I know that the Body of Christ is close to something. We must be alert in this hour. We must have discernment like never before in this hour so that we can see the devil when he comes however he comes. For me it was the devil trying to get in through a relationship that had been cut off. However he comes we need to be in a place in Christ that we can see it for what it is. We need to be continually strenghthening our spirit man.

Colossians 1:28 KJV
Whom we preach , warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus

I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW...

HAS GOD EVER SHOWN YOU A GLIMPSE OF SOMETHING? HAS HE SHOWED YOU A FLASH OF YOUR FUTURE? YEARS AGO I HAD A REOCCURING DREAM THAT I WOULD RUN THROUGH MY GRANDMOTHER'S BACKYARD AND I WOULD END UP IN PARADISE. THE PLACE THAT I RAN TO FELT SAFE; THERE WERE DEEP GREEN, HEALTHY PLANTS ALL AROUND ME. IT WAS PARADISE. I HAD THE DREAM OVER AND OVER AND WONDERED WHY. EVENTUALLY THE DREAM STOPPED. WHEN I LEFT MY HUSBAND I MOVED TO MY MOM'S HOUSE AND THEN TO MY GRANDMOTHER'S HOUSE AND THE DREAM CAME BACK TO MY REMEMBRANCE. IT WAS AS IF GOD WAS SAYING IT'S TIME; IT'S CLOSE. I HAVE TALKED TO PEOPLE ABOUT THIS RECENT SPAN OF TIME AND EVERY CONVERSATION IS ABOUT THE SAME; WE ARE CLOSE; CLOSER THAN WE HAVE EVER BEEN. SOME CIRCUMSTANCES HAD ME IN AN AREA OF TOWN I USED TO LIVE IN. THE AREA OF TOWN IS VERY NICE BUT I NEVER WANTED TO LIVE THERE. WHILE I WAS ON THAT SIDE OF TOWN I FELT GOD TELL ME CONSIDER THIS, AS IN CONSIDER THIS AREA OF TOWN TO LIVE IN. MY SON AND I DROVE AROUND A LITTLE BUT I WASN'T FEELING IT. LATER I REMEMBERED FURTHER UP THE STREET IN THAT AREA WAS A NEIGHBOURHOOD MY COUSIN AND I HAD FOUND YEARS AGO. IT WAS ALMOST HIDDEN AND WE BOTH MARVELED SAYING "WHO KNEW THIS WAS HERE?". IT IS VERY BEAUTIFUL; PARADISE LIKE. TODAY I DROVE IN THE AREA LOOKING FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD; I DID NOT FIND IT. I WILL GO AGAIN TOMORROW. HOLD ON THE APPOINTED TIME IS CLOSE.

ROMANS 13
9.For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery , Thou shalt not kill , Thou shalt not steal , Thou shalt not bear false witness , Thou shalt not covet ; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
10.Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
11.And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed . 12 The night is far spent , the day is at hand : let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

1 CORINTHIANS 13
1.Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2.And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3.And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned , and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4.Charity suffereth long , and is kind ; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself , is not puffed up ,
5.Doth not behave itself unseemly , seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked , thinketh no evil;
6.Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7.Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8.Charity never faileth : but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail ; whether there be tongues, they shall cease ; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away .
9.For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10.But when that which is perfect is come , then that which is in part shall be done away .
11.When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12.For now we see through a glass, darkly ; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known .
13.And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

GOD THE BUILDER

I HAD A DREAM LAST NIGHT THAT I WAS IN MY HOME AND IT WAS UNDER CONSTRUCTION. IT WAS A NICE SIZE HOUSE; I REMEMBER SEEING THE FRAME, THERE WERE A LOT OF DETAILS. I WAS THERE WITH THE PERSON I AM SUPPOSE TO BE WITH...(FUTURE HUSBAND) AND A LADY. WE WERE SITTING ON THE BEAMING OF ONE OF THE FLOORS. A GUY I KNOWCAME AND I MADE UP SOME LAME EXCUSE ABOUT WHY I HAD TO LEAVE AND I LEFT OFF WITH THE GUY THAT I HAD ONCE KNOWN. I THEN SAW THE HOUSE FINISHED AND I WAS WITH MY THEN HUSBAND BUT SOMETHING WAS NOT RIGHT. I HAD CONTAMINATED THE FRAMING. DURING THE BUILDING I DID SOMETHING THAT TAINTED THE HOME. I WOKE UP WITH THAT DREAM PLAYING IN MY MIND. I KNEW IT WAS WARNING BECAUSE WHEN I THINK ABOUT GIVING IN TO TEMPTATION THE GUY IN MY DREAM FROM MY PAST IS WHO I THINK ABOUT. I LOOKED UP THE PROCESS OF BUILDING A HOME; FIRST

THE FOUNDATION
This is one of the most important parts of the construction because it is this foundation the rest of your house will be built upon and it must be done correctly and it must be strong.
SECOND: THE FRAMING

The next phase of the building is the framing. This is the skeleton of your home A house has a skeleton that gives it support, shape, and a framework for outer coverings. This structure is called the frame.To ensure the structure’s strength, these parts are sized and connected in accordance with building codes that are based on basic load engineering principles. It’s important to know which parts are critical to a house’s structure so that you don’t compromise its strength when remodeling or doing work that involves cutting into framing members. For example, if you remove part or all of a load-bearing wall without reinforcing the structure, floors and the roof may sag and windows and doors may stick. Worse, part of the house may collapse.

NEXT: Siding, Roofing, Plumbing and Electric Once the shell is up for the house, the siding and roofing contractors can come in and get to work.

LAST: Interior Walls and Finishing Work

THE FOUNDATION HAS BEEN LAID...FINISH THE WORK AND DON'T COMPRIMISE. THE PROMISE IS CLOSE AND IF YOU WANT THE FULLNESS OF WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU DO WHAT IS NECESSARY. BE DISCIPLINED. ABSTAIN.

Mark 11:17 KJV
And he taught , saying unto them, Is it not written , My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves

1 Kings 7:10 KJV
And the foundation was of costly stones, even great stones, stones of ten cubits, and stones of eight cubits.

2 Chronicles 8:16 KJV
Now all the work of Solomon was prepared unto the day of the foundation of the house of the LORD, and until it was finished . So the house of the LORD was perfected

Isaiah 28:16 KJV
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste .

EZEKIEL 13
8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD.
9 And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.
10 Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying , Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter:
11.Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall : there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones , shall fall ; and a stormy wind shall rend it.
12 Lo, when the wall is fallen , shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it?
13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it.
14 So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered morter, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered , and it shall fall , and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
15 Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that have daubed it with untempered morter, and will say unto you, The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it; 16 To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord GOD.
17 Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy people, which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against them,
18 And say , Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes , and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?
19 And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die , and to save the souls alive that should not live , by your lying to my people that hear your lies?
20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly , and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go , even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly .
21 Your kerchiefs also will I tear , and deliver my people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
22 Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad , whom I have not made sad ; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life :
23 Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

Hebrews 11:10 KJV
For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

PRESS AND ALIGN

I HAVE FELT LIKE I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH FURTHER I CAN GO LATELY. I HAVE FELT LIKE GIVING UP AND TRYING SOMETHING ELSE. BUT THERE IS A TRUTH FROM WITHIN THAT IS CAUSING ME TO PUSH TO PRESS TO FINISH THIS RACE. IT FEELS LIKE WE AS THE BODY OF CHRIST ARE SO CLOSE. ALL WE NEED TO DO IS ALIGN OURSELVES AND PUT IN ORDER WHAT NEEDS TO BE IN ORDER AND FINISH THE WORK. IT HAS BEEN HARD BUT IF WE FINISH THOSE THINGS THAT GOD HAS TOLD US TO DO WE WILL SEE THE FRUIT OF OUR LABOR, SO PUSH.

Philippians 1:6 KJV
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ

Philippians 3:14 KJV
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

DELIVERANCE IS NIGH...PREPARE YE THE WAY OF THE LORD

I WOKE UP EARLY THIS MORNING AND DECIDED TO SLEEP A LITTLE LONGER. I HAD A DREAM THAT I TOLD SOMEONE THAT I KEPT HEARING JERUSALEM AND NEW JERUSALEM AND THEY SAID THAT IT MEANT DELIVERANCE AND I STARTED SHOUTING.THE PERSON TOLD ME THAT JEREMIAH 9 TALKED ABOUT DELIVERANCE. I LOOKED AT JEREMIAH 9:13 AND IT WAS WAS A WARNING; A PROPHECY OF THE JUDGEMENT OF GOD. I WAS LIKE THAT DOESN'T TALK ABOUT DELIVERANCE...THEN I WENT A LITTLE DEEPER.

JEREMIAH 9
1 Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weepday and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!2 Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of wayfaring men ; that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they be all adulterers , an assembly of treacherous men . 3 And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD.4 Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant , and every neighbour will walk with slanders.5 And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speaklies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity . 6 Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.7 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will melt them, and try them; for how shall I dofor the daughter of my people?8 Their tongue is as an arrow shot out ; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait.9 Shall I not visit them for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? 10 For the mountains will I take up a weeping and wailing, and for the habitations of the wilderness a lamentation, because they are burned up , so that none can pass through them; neither can men hear the voice of the cattle; both the fowl of the heavens and the beast are fled ; they are gone . 11 And I will make Jerusalem heaps, and a den of dragons; and I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without an inhabitant . 12 Who is the wise man, that may understand this? and who is he to whom the mouth of the LORD hath spoken , that he may declare it, for what the land perisheth and is burned up like a wilderness, that none passeth through ? 13 And the LORD saith , Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein; 14 But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them: 15 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink . 16 I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known : and I will send a sword after them, till I have consumed them. 17 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Consider ye, and call for the mourning women , that they may come ; and send for cunning women, that they may come : 18 And let them make haste , and take up a wailing for us, that our eyes may run down with tears, and our eyelids gush out with waters.19 For a voice of wailing is heard out of Zion, How are we spoiled ! we are greatly confounded , because we have forsaken the land, because our dwellings have cast us out . 20 Yet hear the word of the LORD, O ye women, and let your ear receive the word of his mouth, and teach your daughters wailing, and every one her neighbour lamentation.21 For death is come up into our windows, and is entered into our palaces, to cut off the children from without, and the young men from the streets.22Speak , Thus saith the LORD, Even the carcases of men shall fall as dung upon the open field, and as the handful after the harvest man , and none shall gather them. 23 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight , saith the LORD.25 Behold, the days come , saith the LORD, that I will punish all them which are circumcised with the uncircumcised;26Egypt, and Judah, and Edom, and the children of Ammon, and Moab, and all that are in the utmost corners, that dwell in the wilderness: for all these nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in the heart

I WAS THEN LED TO REVELATION 3
1And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write ; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest , and art dead.2Be watchful , and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die : for I have not found thy works perfect before God.3Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard , and hold fast , and repent . If therefore thou shalt not watch , I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.4Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which havenot defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.5He that overcometh , the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I willnot blot ou this name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.6He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.7And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write ; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth , and no man shutteth ; and shutteth , and no man openeth ;8I know thy works: behold , I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hastnot denied my name.9Behold , I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie ; behold , I will make them to comeand worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.11Behold , I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast , that no man takethy crown.12Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.13He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.14And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write ; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;15I knowthy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.16So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.17Because thou sayest , I amrich, and increased with goods , and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:18I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich ; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed , and that the shame of thy nakedness donot appear ; and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see .19As many as I love , I rebuk eand chasten : be zealous therefore, and repent .20Behold , I stand at the door, and knock : if any man hearmy voice, and open the door, I will come into him, and will sup with him, and he with me.21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame , and am set down with my Father in his throne.22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

I woke up this morning with the scripture about the Parable of Talents playing (I play the bible on dvd while I sleep). God is returning soon, whether it be the rapture of the church or God visiting us in a way that he has not visited us I don't know but I do know that there will be a visitation. Be ready.

WHERE IS THE FEAR OF GOD?

A while ago a relative of mine and I got into a discussion about Pharisees. We talked about how drunken they were with power. If any of them had a doubt who Christ was when the veil of the temple was rent; When the earth quaked and the sun was darkened; When the graves of saints were opened and the saints walked around the city appearing to many; when they found the stone rolled away and the tomb empty...they knew the truth. They knew the truth and yet they still chose to spread lies and try to keep people in darkness so they could hold on to their title, to hold on to their pride. The conversation then went to the lack of fear. I wandered how could someone be so bold; to know the truth and continue in a lie against the almighty God! How could one be so bold? This week I looked at some articles that were in the news on the web and the articles were against God and I felt they were just tools and their purpose was to plant seeds of doubt and I again wandered how people could be so bold. I wandered, where is the fear of God? This all led me to the conclusion that God is soon to do something so great that the devil is already busy preparing a counter attack. What God is going to do will draw many to Christ and the devil knows how many souls will come into the Kingdom of God. What God is about to do will be so astounding, so awesome that science or man won't be able to explain it away so they will attempt to spread lies. Let truth prevail.

OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD
When He rolls up His sleeves
He ain't just puttin' on the ritz
(our God is an awesome God)
There is thunder in His footsteps
And lightning in His fist
(our God is an awesome God)
Well, the Lord wasn't joking
When He kicked 'em out of Eden
It wasn't for no reason that He she'd his blood
His return is very close and so you better be believing
That our God is an awesome God
REFRAIN
Our God(our God) is an awesome God
He reigns(He reigns) from heaven above
With wisdom(with wisdom) pow'r and love
Our God is an awesome God,br> And when the sky was starless in the void of the night
(our God is an awesome God)
He spoke into the darkness and created the light
(our God is an awesome God)
Judgment and wrath he poured out on to Sodom
Mercy and grace He gave us at the cross
I hope that we have not too quickly forgotten that
Our God is an awesome God
Refrain x3
Our God is an awesome God
Our God is an awesome God
(Our God is an awesome God)
(Our God is an awesome God)

GATES OF HEAVEN

TODAY DURING SERVICE MY PASTOR MENTIONED MT. MORIAH. I STARTED READING "OPENING THE GATES OF HEAVEN...WALK IN THE FAVOR OF ANSWERED PRAYER AND BLESSING" BY PERRY STONE RECENTLY. I AM IN THE VERY BEGINING OF THE BOOK BUT PERRY STONE MENTIONED SOMETHING THAT GRABBED MY ATTENTION. IN THE BOOK HE TALKED ABOUT THERE BEING A SACRED MOUNTAIN CALLED MT MORIAH AND IT BEING THE PLACE WHERE ABRAHAM WAS PREPARED TO OFFER ISAAC AS A SACRIFICE AND ALSO THE PLACE WHERE JACOB EXPERIENCED HIS DREAM; A PLACE THAT HE CALLED THE GATE OF HEAVEN. WHAT IS GOD TRYING TO TELL US? HE FEELS SO CLOSE. IT IS ALMOST AS IF HE WANTS TO REVEAL THE MYSTERY OF HOW TO REACH HIM. COULD IT BE POSSIBLE FOR THE BELIEVER IF IN RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD TO COME TO THE PLACE WHERE HE WOULD BE PERMITTED TO SPIRITUALLY ASCEND TO GOD'S HOLY MOUNTAIN AND TALK TO HIM FACE TO FACE AS MOSES DID? ARE WE COMING TO THAT PLACE? ONCE A WHILE AGO IN CHURCH GOD DID SOMETHING HE HAS NEVER DONE (NOT THAT I CAN REMEMBER)...HE BEGAN TO TELL ME WHO HE WAS; HIS VOICE WAS LIKE THUNDER; HE SAID "I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB". SOMETHING HAPPENED AND THE MOMENT WAS LOST AND I BEGAN TO WEEP. I HAVE HAD A LOT OF EXPERIENCES WITH GOD. I HAVE HAD WORSHIP THAT WAS SO SWEET AND INTENSE THAT I WAS FROZEN IN THAT MOMENT OF TIME...TIME STOPPED I COULD NOT MOVE; I COULD NOT SPEAK; I COULD ONLY TAKE IN THE PRESENCE AND POWER OF GOD. BUT THIS WAS SOMETHING DIFFERENT. IT WAS LIKE GOD WANTED TO INTRODUCE HIMSELF TO ME ON ANOTHER LEVEL. I WANTED IT THEN AND I WANT IT NOW.
MARK 3
13 And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would : and they came unto him.
MARK 9

1 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.
2.And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.
3.And his raiment became shining , exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.
4. And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. 5.And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
6 For he wist not what to say ; for they were sore afraid.
7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying , This is my beloved Son: hear him.

SEPTEMBER

SOMETIMES WHILE I'M READING GOD WILL SHOW ME A WORD THAT'S NOT THERE. I KNOW IT SOUNDs WEIRD BUT IT'S TRUE. I MET SOMEONE A WHILE BACK AND ONE DAY I WAS SOMEWHERE AND I SAW THE WORD 'MUSLIM' WHILE LOOKING AT A SIGN. I CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT THE SIGN ACTUALLY SAID BUT IT WAS NOWHERE CLOSE TO MUSLIM. I KNEW GOD WAS TELLING ME THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS PERSON WHO HAD TOLD ME HE WAS A CHRISTIAN. TODAY I GLANCED DOWN AT SOME PAPERWORK AND SAW THE WORD SUKKOT; I KNEW IT WAS A JEWISH WORD BUT I DID NOT KNOW WHAT IT MEANT. GOD HAS LED ME TO OBSERVE JEWISH HOLIDAYS AT TIMES,MOSTLY PRAYING AND FASTING DURING THAT TIME. TODAY GOD ALSO TOLD ME THAT I NEEDED TO WORSHIP ..NOT JUST TO WORSHIP BUT TO WORSHIP LIKE I HAD NEVER WORSHIPPED BEFORE. ANYWAY THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER IS A VERY SIGNIFICANT TIME FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE; THIS MONTH HAS ROSH HASHANAH (OBSERVED SEPTEMBER 16-18) WHICH IS THE "HEAD OF THE YEAR", THE FIRST DAY OF THE JEWISH YEAR;YOM KIPPUR (SEPTEMBER 25-26) WHICH IS THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, PEOPLE USUALLY FAST DURING THIS TIME; AND SUKKOT SEPTEMBER 30 THROUGH OCTOBER 7...BELOW IS INFORMATION I HAVE GOTTEN ABOUT SUKKOT FROM VARIOUS SITES:
What is Sukkot? The Sukkah, the Four Kinds, the "Water-Drawing Celebrations," the meaning of unity, the dynamics of joy...
For forty years, as our ancestors traversed the Sinai Desert, following the Exodus from Egypt, miraculous "clouds of glory" surrounded and hovered over them, shielding them from the dangers and discomforts of the desert. Ever since, we remember God's kindness and reaffirm our trust in His providence by dwelling in a sukkah--a hut of temporary construction with a roof covering of branches--for the duration of the Sukkot festival (on the Jewish calendar Tishrei 15-21). For seven days and nights, we eat all our meals in the sukkah and otherwise regard it as our home. Another Sukkot observance is the taking of the Four Kinds: an etrog (citron), a lulav (palm frond), three hadassim (myrtle twigs) and two aravot (willow twigs). On each day of the festival (excepting Shabbat), we take the Four Kinds, recite a blessing over them, bring them together in our hands and wave them in all six directions: right, left, forward, up, down and backward. Our sages in the midrash tell us that the Four Kinds represent the various types and personalities that comprise the community of Israel, whose intrinsic unity we emphasize on Sukkot. Sukkot is also called The Time of Our Joy; indeed, a special joy pervades the festival. nightly Water-Drawing Celebrations, reminiscent of the evening-to-dawn festivities held in the Holy Temple in preparation for the drawing of water for use in the festival service, fill the synagogues and streets with song, music and dance until the wee hours of the morning. The seventh day of Sukkot is called Hoshaana Rabbah ("Great Salvation") and closes the period of Divine judgment begun on Rosh Hashanah. A special observance is the aravah--the taking of a bundle of willow branches.

A RENEWED MIND

I HAVE HEARD A WORD OF PROPHECY FROM AN ACCURATE SOURCE REPEATEDLY...THIS NEXT REVIVAL WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE MIND. THAT PROPHECY HAS BEEN COMING BACK UP IN MY SPIRIT LATELY. I HAVE NOTICED IN MY OWN LIFE THAT ONCE YOU REALLY AND TRULY MAKE UP YOUR MIND; IF YOU DON'T MOVE OR GIVE UP IT WILL COME TO PASS. IN PHILLIPIANS 4:8 THE BIBLE SAYS THINK ON WHATEVER IS TRUE, WHATEVER IS HONEST, WHATEVER IS JUST, WHATEVER IS PURE, WHATEVER IS LOVELY AND WHATEVER IS OF A GOOD REPORT. GOD WANTS US TO DISCIPLINE OUR THOUGHT LIFE. THE WORLD HAS A FALSE DOCTRINE..."THE SECRET" THAT SAYS THINKING POSITIVELY ATTRACTS POSITIVE THINGS. THE "SECRET" IS NO SECRET; IT IS AN ALTERED BIBLICAL PRINCIPLE THAT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR A LONG TIME; AS A MAN THINKETH IN HIS HEART SO IS HE (PROVERBS 23:7). WOULD IT NOT BE A POWERFUL THING IF WE MADE UP OUR MINDS TO BELIEVE GOD'S WORD AND HIS PROMISES. IF IT IS NOT YET MANIFESTED IF WE HAVE FAITH AND BELIEVE, PREPARE, AND REHEARSE FOR WHAT GOD SAID WOULD BE IT WILL BE.

PRAY WITHOUT CEASING

TONIGHT I WENT RIDING AND ENDED UP AT A PARK BY THE WATER. I WATCHED HOW ROUGH THE TIDES WERE AND HOW STRONG THE WIND WAS AND I PRAYED AND WORSHIPED. PEOPLE HAD COME OUT TO THE PARK DRAWN BY THE WEATHER AND I WAS HAPPY BECAUSE IT MEANT THAT I COULD STAY LONGER AND BE SAFE.WHEN PEOPLE STARTED LEAVING I DECIDED TO GO TOO; AS I WAS GETTING READY TO GO I FELT LED TO DRIVE TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PARK AND I LOOKED UP AND SAW A CAR THAT LOOKED LIKE THE CAR OF A FRIEND OF MINE. THEN I LOOKED UP AND SAW MY FRIEND STANDING BY THE WATER. I GOT OUT AND WE LAUGHED, PLEASED TO SEE ONE ANOTHER. WE WALKED TO A NEARBY BENCH AND BEGAN TO TALK, THEN SEPERATELY BUT ON ONE ACCORD WE PRAYED AND WORSHIPED. AS WE PRAYED IT SEEMED AS IF THE WIND GOT STRONGER AND THE TIDES GOT ROUGHER. OUT OF NOWHERE A WOMAN BEGAN TO WALK IN OUR DIRECTION. SHE WAS SAYING SOMETHING BUT I COULD NOT HEAR HER. I ASKED MY FRIEND IF SHE KNEW HER, MY FRIEND SAID NO AND I BECAME ALERT. I TOLD MY FRIEND LETS GO AND WE BEGAN TO WALK TOWARDS THE WOMAN, READY TO DEAL WITH WHATEVER. I KNEW IT WAS NO COINCIDENCE THAT SOMEONE HAD COME OUT OF NOWHERE IN AN EMPTY PARK WHILE WE WERE PRAYING. IN MY DREAMS I HAD CAST DEMONS OUT BUT NOT IN REALITY BUT I WAS READY TO SEE IF I COULD. MY FRIEND AND I STOOD SHOULDER TO SHOULDER...READY. THE LADY BEGAN TO SAY THE PARK WAS CLOSED AND TELL A FEW BAD JOKES AMONG SOME OTHER RANDOM RAMBLINGS. MY FRIEND AND I LOOKED AT THE WOMAN EXPRESSIONLESS BECAUSE WE HAD BOTH FELT HOW INTENSE THE WORSHIP AND PRAYER HAD GOTTEN BEFORE BEING ABRUPTLY INTERRUPTED. WE LEFT THE PARK AND THEN TALKED; BOTH OF US WANDERED WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF WE WERE'NT INTERRUPTED. PRAYER WAS MANDATED TODAY. EARLY THIS MORNING AND THEN LATER THIS EVENING I FELT AN URGENCY TO PRAY. I THANK GOD FOR HIS PROTECTION. I THANK GOD THAT HE HEARS AND ANSWERS PRAYER.

COME AWAY WITH ME

SONG OF SOLOMON 2

10 My beloved spake , and said unto me, Rise up , my love, my fair one, and come away . 11 For, lo, the winter is past , the rain is over and gone ; 12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come , and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise , my love, my fair one, and come away . 14 O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.


TODAY GOD IS CALLING HIS PEOPLE TO HIS HOLY HILL TO SPEND TIME ALONE WITH HIM.

FIGHTING TEMPTATION

I don't know what is going on in the atmosphere today but I know I had to fight...my flesh. I know I am close to something and I won't give in to temptation
Matthew 26:41
Watch and pray , that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

UNITY

Psalm 133:1 KJV
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
TODAY'S SERVICE WAS GREAT! THERE WAS A SWEET PRESENCE. IT WAS SO REFRESHING. SO MANY KEY POINTS WERE MADE BUT THE ONE THAT I WILL MEDITATE THE MOST ON WAS THAT "WHAT YOU SEE IS NOT REAL". IF WE AS CHRISTIANS WOULD FOCUS ON THE BIGGER PICTURE IT WOULD CHANGE THE WORLD. THE WILDERNESS IS JUST A MIRAGE THE PROMISED LAND IS WHAT IS REAL.

A WIND OF GOD'S GLORY


ISAIAH 41
1 Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near ; then let them speak : let us come neartogether to judgment.2 Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as drivenstubble to his bow.3 He pursued them, and passedsafely; even by the way that he had not gone with his feet.4 Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he. 5 The isles saw it, and feared ; the ends of the earth were afraid , drew near , and came . 6 They helped every one his neighbour; and every one said to his brother, Be of good courage . 7 So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith , and he that smootheth with the hammer him that smote the anvil, saying , It is ready for the sodering: and he fastened it with nails, that it should not be moved . 8 But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen , the seed of Abraham my friend . 9 Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away . 10Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed ; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.11 Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded : they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish . 12 Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.13 For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. 14Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer , the Holy One of Israel.15 Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small , and shalt make the hills as chaff.16 Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away , and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the LORD, and shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel

SONS OF THUNDER

I HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT LIGHTENING LATELY. I NOTICED THAT FOR WHATEVER REASON THAT WHEN IT IS HOT LIGHTENING SEEMS TO STRIKE CLOSER. I HAVE ALSO BEEN LED TO

MARK 3

13.And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would : and they came unto him.
14.And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach ,
15.And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
16.And Simon he surnamed Peter;
17.And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:

THUNDER IS THE RESULT OF THE COMPRESSION OF HEATED AIR SURROUNDING A LIGHTENING BOLT. A LIGHTENING BOLT CAN BE 5X HOTTER THAN THE SUN.

DANIEL 3

19.Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changedagainst Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake , and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated .
20. And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bindShadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burningfiery furnace.21Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen , and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burningfiery furnace.
22.Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent , and the furnace exceeding hot , the flame of the fire slewthose men that took upShadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
23. And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell downbound into the midst of the burningfiery furnace.
24.Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied , and rose up in haste , and spake , and said unto his counsellors, Did not we castthree men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.
25. He answered and said , Lo, I seefour men loose , walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.


THIS PRESSURE THIS UNATURAL HEAT THAT THE ENEMY HAS LIT TO DESTROY YOU IS THE VERY THING GOD WILL USE TO LOOSE YOUR BOUNDS AND BRING YOU OUT! DELIVERANCE IS NIGH...IT WON'T BE STOPPED.

WHAT WAS NO IS NOW YES

TODAY I HEARD THE LORD SAY "WHAT WAS NO IS NOW YES".
.EXODUS 12
31. AND HE CALLED FOR MOSES AND AARON BY NIGHT, HE , AND ALL HIS SERVANTS, AND SAID, RISE UP, AND GET YOU FORTH FROM AMONGST MY PEOPLE, BOTH YOU AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL; GO, SERVE THE LORD, AS YE HAVE SAID.
32. ALSO TAKE YOUR FLOCKS AND YOUR HERDS, AS YE HAVE SAID, AND BE GONE; AND BLESS ME ALSO.
33. AND THE EGYPTIANS WERE URGENT UPON THE PEOPLE, THAT THEY MIGHT SEND THEM OUT OF THE LAND IN HASTE; FOR THEY SAID, WE ALL BE DEAD MEN.
34. AND THE PEOPLE TOOK THEIR DOUGH BEFORE IT WAS LEAVENED, THEIR KNEADINGTROUGHS BEING BOUND UP IN THEIR CLOTHES UPON THEIR SHOULDERS. ,BR> 25. AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL DID ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF MOSES; AND THEY BORROWED OF THE EGYPTIANS JEWELS OF SILVER, AND JEWELS OF GOLD, AND RAIMENT:
36. AND THE LORD GAVE THE PEOPLE FAVOUR IN THE SIGHT OF THE EGYPTIANS, SO THAT THEY LENT UNTO THEM SUCH THINGS AS THEY REQUIRED. AND THEY SPOILED THE EGYPTIANS.

OVERFLOW

I HAD A DREAM LAST NIGHT THAT IT WAS FLOODING AND MY FAMILY AND I WERE TRYING TO HURRY TO GET IN THE HOUSE. THE WATERS WERE GETTING HIGH BUT FOR WHATEVER REASON THE WATER WASN'T COMING IN THE HOUSE. AS THE WATER GOT HIGHER ANIMALS TRIED TO GET INTO THE HOUSE. THEIR STRENGTH WAS ABNORMAL TO SAY THE LEAST. A DOG HIT THE FRONT DOOR WITH SUCH A FORCE THAT THE DOOR MOVED INWARDLY BUT THE DOG OR WATER COULD NOT COME IN. ONE OF MY CHILDREN WAS IN THE BACK YARD IN THE FLOOD. HE LATER GOT INTO THE HOUSE SAFELY. THE CHILD THAT WAS OUTSIDE WAS MY THREE YEAR OLD AND I FELT THAT WAS STRANGE BUT I FELT THE LORD WAS TELLING ME TO KEEP MY CHILDREN COVERED. MY THREE YEAR OLD GOES WITH HIS FATHER FOR THE WEEKEND AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT HE IS BEING EXSPOSED TO BUT I DO KNOW THAT ALL OF MY CHILDREN WILL BE SATURATED WITH PRAYER. I TAKE THIS AS A WARNING. GET INTO THE ARK. MAKE YOUR HOUSE READY. GATHER WHO YOU WILL TO BE SAVED. THERE IS A FLOOD COMING. THERE IS SAFETY IN GOD. THERE IS SAFETY IN THE HOUSE. KEEP OUT WHAT DOESN'T BELONG THROUGH PRAYER. GOD'S GLORY WILL BE BEAUTIFUL FOR THOSE WHO ARE FOUND READY AND PREPARED BUT FOR THOSE WHO ARE FOUND UNPREPARED AND NOT READY THERE IS DANGER OF FLOODING.

WE MUST BE HUMBLE

TODAY WHEN I GOT HOME IN THE HALLWAY THERE WAS A PIECE OF PAPER. ON THE PIECE OF PAPER WERE NOTES TAKEN FROM MESSAGES I HEARD AT CHURCH STARTING ON 6/23 I'M GUESSING OF LAST YEAR . THE NOTES WERE FROM AT LEAST FIVE CHURCH SERVICES AND I FELT THE NEED TO SHARE THEM.
6/23 THE MESSAGE TALKED ABOUT WAS PETER WALKING ON WATER IN MATTHEW AND IT SAID LET PEOPLE SEE YOU DOWN SO THEY CAN SEE GOD BRING YOU BACK UP AND HE CAN GET THE GLORY.
6/30 THE MESSAGE WAS ABOUT FEAR AND PRIDE AND IT SAID THAT WHEN TERROR AND FEAR ARE PRESENT THERE IS NO POWER, FEAR IS ROOTED AND ATTACHED TO PRIDE, DO NOT TO BE AFRAID TO SHARE YOUR TESTIMONY, THERE IS POWER IN YOUR TESTIMONY AND SHAME IS A DARK SPIRIT THAT HINDERS
7/3 FORGIVENESS IS LETTING IT GO, IF YOU ARE SAVED FORGIVENESS SHOULD NOT BE AN ISSUE; PRIDE IS KEEPING US FROM GOING IN TO HEAVEN.
7/7 YOU CAN BE A BELIEVER BUT NOT HAVE RECEIVED THE HOLY GHOST YOU CAN'T BE BORN AGAIN WITHOUT THE HOLY GHOST. IF YOU HAVE THE HOLY GHOST YOU WILL DO THE WILL OF GOD, LET THE OLD MAN DIE AND NOT HIDE, YOU CAN'T BE IN THE BATTLE ONLY PART-TIME.
7-31 PRAY FOR THE RETURN OF THER FATHER AND THE RETURN OF THE FAMILY; WOMAN IS A MIRROR FOR MAN (CHECKS AND BALANCE)

WHEN PRIDE GOES GLORY WILL COME

I HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT PRIDE LATELY. TONIGHT I CAME ACROSS SOMETHING I HAD WRITTEN ON CHRISTMAS. I HAD WRITTEN WHAT I HEARD GOD SAY AND IT WAS: "I WANT YOU TO LOOK FOR UNUSUAL BLESSINGS AND MIRACLES IN DAYS TO COME; IF PRIDE DIES AND MY CHILDREN TRULY RECOGNIZE THAT IT IS ME AND I AM WORKING THROUGH THEM AND THEY ARE ONLY VESSELS AND THEY GIVE ME THE GLORY...I WILL DO GREAT THINGS AMONG THEM". I HAVE ALWAYS THOUGHT OF PRIDE WHEN I THOUGHT OF THE STORY OF KING UZZIAH; PRIDE WAS HIS DOWNFALL.WE MUST BE HUMBLE.

Isaiah 6:1 KJV
In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up , and his train filled the temple.

KEYS OF THE KINGDOM

I HAD A DREAM THAT MY COUSIN AND I WERE AT A POOL AND WE WERE DOING WHAT SEEMED TO BE DRILLS OF SOME SORT, CLIMBING UP ROPES ETC. AT THE END WHEN IT WAS TIME TO GO I DISCOVERED THAT I HAD LOST MY KEYS. I TOLD HER AND WE BEGAN TO LOOK FOR THEM AND I REMEMBERED WHERE I HAD LEFT THEM (THEY WERE IN A POOL). WHEN I FOUND THEM ONE OF THE KEYS WERE BROKEN (I ACTUALLY HAVE A SET OF KEYS LIKE THAT). I SAID THE KEY IS BROKEN ANYWAY; THEN I REMEMBERED THAT I HAD A SPARE KEY ON THE RING. TODAY I SAW THE SET OF KEYS WITH THE BROKEN KEY. I HAD TAKEN THE SPARE OFF AND LOST IT AND IT WASN'T ON THE RING. I HAD LOOKED EVERYWHERE AND I NEVER FOUND IT BUT TODAY RIGHT AFTER I LOOKED AT THE RING I WENT IN THE NEXT ROOM AND THE KEY WAS RIGHT THERE ON THE FLOOR. I KNEW GOD WAS SPEAKING. IT WAS AS IF HE SAID I AM GIVING YOU THE KEYS TO YOUR FUTURE. DOORS THAT WERE LOCKED WILL NOW BE OPENED AND THE VISION THAT I GAVE YOU IS NOT LOST. IF GOD SAID IT AND PUT IT IN YOUR HEART IT WILL MANIFEST.

Matthew 16:19 KJV
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

GOD IS REAL AND HIS WORD IS TRUE

My son told me about a dream he had last week and I can't stop thinking about it. In it he said there were glass circles that were connected moving across the sky and then there were three moons one of them was bright and green,one was small but bright like the sun,and one of the moons was spinning and there was also a spinning star. He said people thought the world was going to end but it was like God was just showing people he existed.Today in church my pastor said something about God demonstrating his power. After church today while I was watching the movie Jesus, during the scene that Jesus turned water into wine God impressed upon my spirit that, that is where we are now, where God will show all who will be saved that he is real. My pastor is also preaching about Saducees and Pharasies and I think that it is prophetic because when God does begin to move people will try to discredit the move and come up with scientific explanations to keep people from coming into truth. I pray that Christians everywhere will unite as one to intercede for the cultivating of souls to recieve seeds of truth so that the harvest will be plentiful. I am so hungry and looking forward to revivals, all night prayer watches etc. I believe if we as Christians give God acceptable offerings of our time etc. the result will be the ushering in of a move of God that will change the world. I'm Ready!

Acts 2:17 KJV
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy , and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams

Zechariah 4:1-9



1 And the angel that talked with me came again , and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep,2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said , I have looked , and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof: 3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof. 4 So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying , What are these, my lord?5 Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said , No, my lord.6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying , This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying , Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.7 Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it. 8 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying , 9 The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you.

CHOOSE

I AM EXCITED ABOUT THE TIMES WE ARE LIVING IN BUT PART OF ME IS GRIEVED. I FEEL THAT GOD IS GOING TO RESTORE HIS PEOPLE; I FEEL THAT HE IS GOING TO BLESS THE FAITHFUL BUT MORE EXCITING IS THAT I THINK HE IS GOING TO QUICKEN THE UNLIKELY WINNERS; THE ONES WHO HAVE BEEN RUNNING THE CHRISTIAN RACE AT A DISADVANTAGE BUT RUNNING ALL THE SAME! GOD IS GOING TO SET THE CAPTIVE FREE; LIBERATION IS NIGH AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HOW FAST THOSE THAT WERE WEIGHTED DOWN WILL RUN WHEN THEY ARE SET FREE. ON THE FLIP SIDE I FEEL THAT THERE WILL BE A GREAT UNCOVERING. GOD'S TRUTH WILL PREVAIL AND HE WILL BEGIN THE SHOW FORTH HIS LIGHT IN DARK PLACES AND REVEAL AND UNCOVER WHAT WAS HIDDEN AND THOSE WHO THOUGHT THEY HAD GOTTEN AWAY WITH WHAT THEY WERE DOING WILL HAVE TO ANSWER. STAY IN POSITION AND LET THE LORD FIND YOU READY.

Joshua 24:15 KJV
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve ; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell : but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Revelation 22:11 KJV

He that is unjust , let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy , let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

Living in the Last Days

Today in church I saw a vision of a scroll turning and the words on the scroll were light and coming off of the pages. Later someone gave a word of prophecy that said time is winding up. Christ is soon to return.

Luke: Chapter 10
23. And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately , Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see :
24. For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see , and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear , and have not heard them.

HAVE MERCY LORD

Today I had planned to post about Adam and Eve. I found the scripture in Genesis Chapter 1 that said be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth and subdue it and have dominion but what kept coming up in my spirit while praying is Have Mercy Lord. "Have Mercy Lord!" "Have Mercy, Jesus!"

BE FRUITFUL, MULTIPLY, REPLENISH

Today I got dressed for church and the car I was driving started cutting off. I had been having problems with it so I decided to turn around while I could. This morning I got the impression to study Adam and Eve with my children this week. I wandered why I studied about Noah first so I looked back over the story of Noah and I found that God had told Noah what he had told Adam..Be Fruitful, Multiply, Replenish. I remembered be fruitful and multiply but I always thought the last part was have dominion. Anyway I decided to study the word replenish.

Replenish
1 a: to fill with persons or animals : stock barchaic: to supply fully : perfect c: to fill with inspiration or power : nourish
2 a: to fill or build up again b: to make good

We have been talking about building up in church and I think that "building up" is critical in this season. The devil knows that we are close to a move of God that will change everything. We are close to a move of God that will equipt God's people to take dominion and to replenish. Because we are so close the devil is pulling out his arsenal and doing all he can to get us off track and out of position. Last Sunday in church God wanted me to compel his people to call in those that had gotten out of position. There are some tares that are suppose to go but there is also wheat that is entangled with the tares. We must restore. When I think of Adam and Eve I think about obedience. It is so important to be obedient. No matter what seems to be going on around us we must focus and do what God has called us to do. We must pray, we must fast, we must build, we must encourage, we must edify, we must restore, we must be fruitful, we must multiply, we must replenish.

There is Power in Righteouness

Since I had been dealing with doubt I decided that my children and I would study faith this week. I pray with my children but God has really been dealing with me about doing more like teaching etc. I am including my younger children too so I am using the story of Noah to teach them on their level. Yesterday we read Genesis chapter 6 and I told them the story of Noah; my little girl said someone had brought a book about Noah to school which made me happy. Today I went to church and had my older two children pray with the younger children and read them Genesis Chapter 7. I read Genesis chapter 7 as well and the fact that Noah's righteousness caused God to save a remnant really impacted me. Other parts that stood out were
Genesis Chapter 7:11In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the window of heaven were opened.
Genesis Chapter7:15 And they went in unto Noah into the ark,two and two of all flesh, wherin is the breath of life.
7:22 All in whose nostris was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.

A definition of dry is unproductive of the expected results. I am reminded of something we have been talking about in church Luke 13

Luke 13
5.I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent , ye shall all likewise perish .
6.He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon , and found none.
7.Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold , these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down ; why cumbereth it the ground?
8And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:
9.And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.

It's like God was saying all the dry and unproductive I will destroy and he destroyed it by the very thing it was lacking...moisture. We really need to get it together in this hour before God comes back and finds that we still have not produced fruit. God is merciful and loving but how long will he hold back his wrath.The enemy has launched an attack that has caused a lot of people to lose focus (I was one of the people) but I will pray that all that can be saved find safety in the ark.

Delayed But Not Denied: Reclaiming Your Identity

In a previous post I posted about how when checking on a matter representatives would ask me if I had been a victim of identity theft. It turns out that I was and because of this something that I was waiting on was delayed. I did not realize what affect it had on me at first. I missed church last Sunday and I had planned not to go this Sunday but God told me that if I didn't I would be in disobedience. I went and the service was good. It was good the last time I went too but still I think a part of me had given up. If God would have left me to myself who knows! What was delayed affected my finances and some things I had been waiting to do I couldn't do and it affected me. I won't pretend that it didn't. I was like, I waited and waited and then something that rarely happens just happened to happen to me. I had the attitude that I'm just gonna do what I want if its going to be like this anyway. Some things I won't do because my grace is gone in those areas but I found myself listening to secular music again among some other things. Today in church I realized doubt had crept in and how. Before church God had been dealing with me about taking steps to achieve some of the things I had asked him for. After church I went for a drive and I stopped somewhere that had gardenia bushes; I smelled the fragrance and it was as if God was reminding me of who I was in him. God then told me to drive downtown. I have always wanted to live downtown but the houses are very expensive so I guess I had kind of put that down. It was as if God was telling me to dream again, hope again. In church my pastor said not to die not realizing that what is in your spirit will heal you...Amen. God has placed hidden treasures within us. We must continue to search until we discover them and how he wants us to use them.

2 Corinthians 4:7
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

A Little Leaven...Strange Fire

This morning when I woke up I heard "Fire Hex". I was disturbed. I had been waiting and then I guess searching for God's fire. I got up and asked the Lord, Lord what do you mean? I was led to
Matthew 13:33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kindgom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of mean, till the whole was leavened.
I still needed clarity and my attention focused on a cd that I had ordered, I had picked it up with my bible and some other books I had been reading. I had ordered the cd to try soaking to it. I always knew that there could be danger with this level of music but I thought this artist was okay. I got the cd and I did not like the way the artist looked. I questioned myself and said are you judging her because she is not pretty? but it was something more...she looked animal like. I noticed it and said she kind of looks like a wolf and then I doubted myself again and said "you are being judgemental". This morning while searching the matter God told me that His presence cannot be forced. He reminded me of times that I had worshipped and his presence was so strong that it was almost overwhelming. I long for that again. God was telling me that I could seek him for myself. Even if someone is legitamate they could be in a place in God that you are not ready or even annointed or ordained to go. I do like the idea of being quiet and still before the Lord Jesus but I am going to get back to worshipping him for myself; from my heart with my song.

Leviticus 9
22 .And Aaron lifted up his hand toward the people, and blessed them, and came down from offering of the sin offering, and the burnt offering, and peace offerings.
23 And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the congregation, and came out , and blessed the people: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the people.
24 And there came a fire out from before the LORD, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people saw , they shouted , and fell on their faces

Leviticus 10
1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, tookeither of them his censer, and putfire therein, and putincense thereon, and offeredstrangefire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.
2 And there went outfire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they diedbefore the LORD.
3 Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the LORD spake , saying , I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified . And Aaron held his peace

Deliverance Is Nigh

Today two books that I ordered on deliverance came in the mail. Both of the books were written by Frank Hammond the author of "Pigs in the Parlor". One book is "Overcoming Rejection" and the other is "Children's Deliverance". I believe there is going to be a wave of deliverance for God's people. We need to be whole in order to carry the fire of the Lord and lead people out of darkness. There has been alot of rain in my area; it is symbolic of what is happening in the spirit realm. This is a time of washing, preparing, and getting our house in order (Spring cleaning). I am so greatful for the Spring that has taken place in the lives of believers...a refreshing, and a renewal. I'm excited about what God is doing.

Isaiah 61:1 KJV
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted , to proclaim liberty to the captives , and the opening of the prison to them that are bound ;

Know Who You Are In Christ, Keep Your Identity

A while ago God began to reveal some things about a person I knew. I told someone and they suggested I pray for the person. It was a time in my life that I felt exhausted and I said "I don't think I have anything left". The wise counsel that I received was that if I prayed and interceded for the person that God would give me the strength I needed and raise people up to intercede for me. I began praying for the person and as a result God strengthened me. Today God reminded me again of the principle learned...when you build up others and pray for others it strengthens and helps you. Today God gave me the revelation that if I began to pray and intercede for others he would raise up people and intercessors to pray for me and it would change everything. This principle seems simple enough but when life is full of chaos and one blow comes after the other, simple things aren't always so simple. I hope you don't mind but I am going to be transparent today. My older sons and I were talking and I told them what God had told me about interceding for others and we began to talk about intercession and the importance of having the Holy Spirit. As we were talking I told them how when we began interceding for others everything that had been held up would be released. We then began to talk about how things seemed to be unnaturally held up and then I remembered one thing in particular. Every time I would call to check on it the representative would ask me if I had been a victim of identity theft. Something clicked. Identity theft. The devil had launched these attacks to keep me immobile. To keep me from walking in the fullness of who God has called me to be. In a sense I had lost my identity in a way. A sort of spiritual amnesia; I wasn't worshiping and I am a worshiper, I wasn't interceding and God has called me to intercession etc. We must not lose focus in times. We must remain on fire for Christ. We must pray, we must fast, we must study the bible, we must build up our brothers and sisters in Christ, we must worship! It's who we are.It's our identity.

Revelation 3
1. And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write ; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I knowthy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest , and artdead.
2.Be watchful , and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die : for I havenot found thy works perfect before God.
3.Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard , and hold fast , and repent . If therefore thou shalt not watch , I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
4.Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
5He that overcometh , the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
6.He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
7.And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write ; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth , and no man shutteth ; and shutteth , and no man openeth ;
8.I knowthy works: behold , I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
9.Behold , I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and ar enot, but do lie ; behold , I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to knowt hat I have loved thee.
10.Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
11.Behold , I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast , that no man take thy crown.
12.Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
13.He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
14.And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write ; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15.I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou were cold or hot.
16.So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17.Because thou sayest , I am rich, and increased with goods , and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18.I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich ; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed , and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear ; and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see .
19.As many as I love , I rebukeand chasten : be zealous therefore, and repent .
20.Behold , I stand at the door, and knock : if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come into him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21.To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame , and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22.He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

STAND

These are strange and trying times. I have come to what I thought was the edge of my faith more than once but every time God has nudged me to take another step and there I have found hidden bridges. I will not give up. I will not back down. I know in whom I can safetly put my trust. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob the One and Only, True and Living God....Jesus. I have this confidence...He will come and that right early and if I hold on there is victory in him. Sometimes I feel so alone but that's okay. I'll walk alone if I have to; I will leave behind everything it really doesn't matter. I believe God. I have been entangled in sin and I won't go back. I will wait! Wiping tears if I have to; crawling if I must; however. I will make it to the promise. I will stand.

Matthew 24:15
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holyplace, (whoso readeth , let him understand :)

Psalm 93

The Lord reigneth,he is clothed with majesty;
the Lord is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself:
the world also is established, that it cannot be moved
Thy throne is established of old:
thou art from everlasting.
The floods have lifted up, O Lord,
the floods have lifted up their voice;
the floods have lift up their waves
The Lord is mightier than the noise of many waters,
yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
Thy testimonies are very sure:
holines becometh thine house,O Lord, forever.

LETTING GO OF JUDAS

I have always been particular about who I let in my life. I have recently come to the conclusion that someone in my life is not for me. I love this person but after doing an inventory of our relationship I have to be honest with myself. After considering everything I am noticing all of the distractions; all of the hinderances. When do you let go of Judas? If God allowed the relationship to ultimately bring to pass his will at what point do you let go? Jesus who is an example of what love should be walked with Judas knowing all along that he would betray him. How do you walk with a person knowing they aren't for you? Watching relationships that could have grown die because of seeds of discord they sow. Does Judas know his assignment or is he used unwittingly? I want to be able to love freely without fear but I am at a crossroad; do I hand it over to Jesus or do I say enough and let go?

Luke 22:48
But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

PIGS IN THE PARLOR



I finished reading "Pigs in the Parlor" by Frank and Ida Mae Hammond. I was in a bible bookstore about a week ago and I was waiting for the person working in the store to do something and I picked up the book and bought it. I can't begin to describe the value of this book to the Body of Christ. The book is about deliverance. It likens living with demons to having pigs in your home...unacceptable! This is one of the best Christian books I have read if not the best (Bible not included; the Bible is by far the most important and best book for anyone, especially a Christian). I would recommend this book to anyone; this is the type of authority we as Christians should be walking in.

Cry Unto the Lord.

I haven't felt like writing in a while. I had planned to post something this week because God gave me the date 2/20/2012. I don't know if the date is significant to me personally or if it's for everyone. I will be sure to intercede; intercede with me. I had to post today to tell you of God's goodness. On my way to work it was raining hard and I was on a road that was flooded so I figured "hey I had better turn around". When I backed up, I backed up into a ditch. I was inches (and not many inches at all) away from backing up on a power line and the car I was driving was stuck in a ditch. I tried to drive out of the ditch and couldn't and got out of the car to discover the ditch was knee deep and filled with water. I began to call on Jesus! I said "no Lord, help me please". I began to cry and I called 911; along that time a guy pulled up and told me he was going to go get his four wheeler but before he could make it back a guy in a silver truck came and said "so your stuck in a ditch"? I said yeah and he said "you're not crying are you"? He then said "I'm gonna do what I can to try to help you". He opened the back of his truck and pulled out a rope and told me what to do. I drove out of the ditch and to work. I made it to work and unless I tell someone no one but the people that were there would know what happened. I am so encouraged in God and in people. There is hope. We only have to ask! Cry out to the Lord; tell him what it is you need. His ears are open to his children. He will answer.

Psalm 4:1 KJV
Hear me when I call , O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.

RESTORATION OF WORSHIP

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Psalm 46
1. To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah. A Song for Alamoth. God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
2. Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3. Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah
4. There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.
5. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
6. The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
7. The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
8. Come, behold the works of the Lord, Who has made desolations in the earth.
9.He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariot in the fire.
10. Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
11. The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
