JUDGE BY THE SPIRIT...JUDGE BY THE WORD

GOD TOLD ME TO FAST THIS WEEK AND I DIDN'T. HE WANTED ME TO FAST SO THAT I COULD JUDGE A MATTER BY MY SPIRIT AND NOT BY MY MIND OR MY EMOTIONS. THE MATTER LEFT ME CONFUSED; GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION; SO SINCE I WAS DISOBEDIENT I AM CHOOSING TO JUDGE THE MATTER BY HIS WORD.

1 CORINTHIANS 13
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not (love)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 (love) 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 (love) charity, it profiteth me nothing.   
4(Love) Charity suffereth long , and is kind ; (love) charity envieth not; (love) 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 (Love) 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,(love) charity, these three; but the greatest of these is (love) charity.

TURN AROUND

MY PASTOR PROPHESIED IN CHURCH SUNDAY THAT IN THREE DAYS THERE WOULD BE A CHANGE. TODAY IS TUESDAY AND I CHECKED MY BANK ACCOUNT...THERE WAS A DEPOSIT MADE!  I WAS ON MY LAST, TRYING TO WALK BY FAITH BUT WANDERING HOW; I PAY TITHES...I PAY BEYOND THE TENTH BUT I HAVE ALWAYS SEEMED TO STRUGGLE IN MY FINANCES. SOMEHOW I ALWAYS KNEW THAT IF HE SPOKE A BLESSING IT WOULD HAPPEN; I HAVE TOLD MY FAMILY AND KIDS THAT I BELIEVED IF HE WOULD SPEAK A BLESSING IT WOULD HAPPEN. I'M AM RECEIVING THAT WORD AND RUNNING WITH IT! THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINING OF BLESSINGS.

REMEMBER

I  FEELTHAT THIS COMING MEMORIAL DAY WILL BE VERY SIGNIFICANT. ON THIS DAY I WILL REMEMBER THE SOLDIERS WHO SERVED AND DIED FOR OUR FREEDOM BUT I WILL ALSO REMEMBER THE ONE WHO DIED FOR THE FREEDOM OF MANKIND...THE ONE AND ONLY; KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS, JESUS! THIS MEMORIAL DAY I AM REMBERING WHAT JESUS DID FOR US AND I WILL WALK IN THE FREEDOM THAT HE PROVIDED WHEN HE LAYED DOWN HIS LIFE AND TOOK IT UP AGAIN!

LUKE 22
14 And when the hour was come , he sat down , and the twelve apostles with him.            
15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer :            
16 For I say unto you , I will not any more eat thereof , until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.            
17 And he took the cup, and gave thanks , and said , Take this, and divide it among yourselves:            
18 For I say unto you , I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come . 19 And he took bread, and gave thanks , and brake it, and gave unto them, saying , This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.   
 20 Likewise also the cup after supper , saying , This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

THEY THAT SOW IN TEARS WILL REAP IN JOY...GOD IS WIPING OUR TEARS AWAY.




REVELATION 7
9 After this I beheld , and, lo , a great multitude, which no man could number , of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying , Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb
 11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12 Saying , Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13 And one of the elders answered , saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they ?    
 14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest . And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.   
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.    
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.    
17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

MY HELP...COMES FROM THE LORD


THE TRICK OF DIVISION

I HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT HOW JESUS OFTEN SPOKE IN PARABLES. I READ MARK CHAPTER THREE THIS MORNING WHERE JESUS ORDAINED THE TWELVE DISCIPLES AND SENT THEM FORTH WITH POWER TO HEAL SICKNESSES AND CAST OUT DEVILS ( FOR WHATEVER REASON I ALWAYS PAUSE WHEN I GET TO THE PART WHERE JESUS SURNAMED A SPECIAL GROUP WITHIN THE GROUP...THE TWO; THE SONS OF THUNDER.) MARK CHAPTER THREE ALSO TALKS ABOUT DIVISION; IT'S AN OLD TRICK BUT SADLY IT IS STILL WORKING! I THOUGHT ABOUT THE SCRIPTURE (MATTHEW 13:10) WHERE THE DISCIPLES ASKED JESUS WHY HE SPOKE TO THE PEOPLE IN PARABLES AND HE SAID BECAUSE IT WAS GIVEN UNTO THEM TO KNOW THE MYSTERIES OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. BEFORE JESUS WAS SEATED ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE FATHER I'M SURE HIS DISCIPLES HAD WALKED WITH HIM LONG ENOUGH TO KNOW HIM AND WHETHER HE SPOKE IN A PARABLE OR PLAINLY...THEY UNDERSTOOD HIM. I ALSO THOUGHT ON THAT COUNTERFEIT; THE DEVIL AND HOW HE DOES THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT GOD IS DOING BY DOING SOMETHING THAT LOOKS SIMILAR. JESUS SPOKE IN PARABLES... I THINK THE DEVIL AT TIMES SPEAKS IN RIDDLES AND THE PURPOSE OF THE RIDDLE IS TO BRING CONFUSION AND/OR DIVISION. WEBSTER DEFINES A RIDDLE AS:
1: a mystifying, misleading, or puzzling question posed as a problem to be solved or guessed :
2: something or someone difficult to understand
I HAVE HEARD SEVERAL WISE PEOPLE MENTION THE FACT THAT THE FALL OF MAN BEGAN WITH A QUESTION (OR RIDDLE) YEA, HATH GOD SAID, YE SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE IN THE GARDEN?
THE TRICK HE PLAYED ON ADAM AND EVE CAUSED THE DIVISION BETWEEN GOD AND MAN, BUT THANK GOD FOR JESUS, THE REPAIRER OF THE BREACH! THERE IS POWER IN UNITY.

THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE

TODAY MY CHURCH WAS FASTING. I HAVE GONE ON THREE DAY WATER FASTS THAT WEREN'T THIS HARD. I DECIDED TO FAST FOR PART OF THE DAY. GOD GAVE ME A TIME. I WENT BY THE WATER AND PRAYED TWICE TODAY BEFORE BREAKING IT. ON MY WAY TO THE WATER THE SECOND TIME I GOT A MESSAGE THAT MY LITTLE GIRL WAS CUTTING UP IN SCHOOL (AGAIN). DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD I SAW A CHURCH SIGN BUT WHAT I READ WAS "HARRY POTTER" I LOOKED BACK UP AND IT SAID HOLY TEMPLE. I SAID OKAY LORD WHAT IS THAT AND HE SAID SHE WATCHED HARRY POTTER AND IT OPENED A DOOR. I WOULDN'T LET MY CHILDREN WATCH HARRY POTTER WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT; MY EX HUSBAND DID NOT UNDERSTAND ME NOT WANTING THEM TO WATCH IT, OR ME NOT WANTING THEM TO CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN, OR ME NOT TELLING THEM ABOUT THE TOOTH-FAIRY OR SANTA CLAUS...HE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND ME. WHEN WE SEPARATED I'M SURE ALOT OF THE THINGS I FOUGHT FOR AND BELIEVED IN WENT OUT THE WINDOW. MY LITTLE GIRL WAS OLD ENOUGH WHILE WE WERE TOGETHER FOR HER NOT TO BELIEVE IN SANTA CLAUS BUT MY LITTLE BOY DOES EVEN THOUGH I HAVE TRIED TO TELL HIM WHY CHRISTMAS IS CELEBRATED. I ASKED MY LITTLE GIRL IF SHE HAD WATCHED HARRY POTTER AND SHE SAID NO BUT IT WASN'T RINGING TRUE TO MY SPIRIT SO I BEGAN TO LOOK ONLINE TO LEARN MORE. HARRY POTTER HAD A CHARACTER NAMED VOLDEMERE WHO SCREAMED ALOT (I HAVE READ THAT VOLDEMERE IS THE NAME OF AN ACTUAL DEMON); THE MOVIE HAD SCREAMING  ROOTS AND SCREAMING PANTS...SCREAMING, SCREAMING, SCREAMING. GUESS WHAT THE MAIN  COMPLAINT ABOUT MY DAUGHTER'S BAD BEHAVIOR IS?...SCREAMING. I THANK GOD FOR BRINGING TRUTH IN THIS HOUR.

32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free .

FREEDOM

LAST NIGHT IN CHURCH WE DISCUSSED 2 CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 10.  IT WAS DISCUSSED THAT WHEN WE BRING EVERY THOUGHT INTO CAPTIVITY TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST THEN STRONGHOLDS WILL BE BROKEN AND FORCED TO SUBMIT. THIS WAS SO PROPHETIC! THIS WEEK GOD TOLD ME TO BEGIN TO PRAY FOR SOMEONE THAT HAD WRONGED ME, NOT JUST ONE DAY BUT EVERYDAY FOR TWENTY ONE DAYS. LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT MY PRAYERS HAVE BEEN VERY SPECIFIC...THAT GOD WILL ALLOW THEM TO BE PRESENTED THE TRUTH AND THAT THEY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHOOSE TRUTH AND SALVATION. SO THE MESSAGE WAS VERY TIMELY AND IT GAVE ME MORE INSIGHT AS TO WHAT GOD IS DOING. WE AS BELIEVERS ARE GETTING READY TO BE FREE AND WALK INTO DESTINY. THE SPIRIT THAT HAS BEEN DRIVING THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN COMING AGAINST US WILL BE HELD CAPTIVE AND
FOR SOME IF NOT ALL THE PEOPLE DRIVEN OR INHABITED BY THESE SPIRITS
THERE WILL BE A SPACE OF TIME FOR THEM TO SEE THE TRUTH AND MAKE A CLEAR DECISION. BUT WE WILL BE FREE EITHER WAY. LORD HAVE MERCY! I TAKE INTO CAPTIVITY THE PART OF ME THAT WANTS JUSTICE FOR THE WRONG AND I SAY LORD HAVE YOUR WAY. I'M SURE A LOT OF CHRISTIANS WEREN'T TO THRILLED ABOUT SAUL'S DAMASCUS EXPERIENCE; BUT GOD IS GOD AND HIS WAYS ARE HIGHER THAN OUR WAYS...HIS THOUGHTS HIGHER THAN OUR THOUGHTS. SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN ON THE OTHER SIDE AND HAS BEEN TRULY CONVERTED WOULD REACH PEOPLE THAT AREN'T REACHED SO EASILY! LORD HAVE YOUR WAY AND USHER IN DELIVERANCE FOR ANYONE WHO WILL RECEIVE IT.

2 CORINTHIANS 10
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled

LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO!

I HAD ANOTHER DREAM ABOUT A STORM LAST NIGHT. THIS TIME THE WIND WAS VERY STRONG AND THE TREES WHIPPED BACK AND FORTH THREATENING TO COME THROUGH THE WINDOW OF THE ROOM MY CHILDREN AND I WERE IN. I WOKE UP REMEMBERING THE DREAM BUT NOT FEELING TROUBLED ABOUT IT. I KNEW THAT IT MEANT SOMETHING BUT I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT. I BELIEVE THERE ARE THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH A SEASON IN WHICH YOU HAVE WANDERED WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON. A SEASON LIKE JOB WHERE GOD ALLOWED SOME THINGS BUT SPARED YOUR LIFE. I BELIEVE WE ARE COMING OUT. THE ENEMY WANTS TO HOLD ON. HE THOUGHT WE WOULD BE DEFEATED BUT VICTORY IS ON THE HORIZON. I BELIEVE GOD!

JOB 5
1Call now, if there be any that will answer thee; and to which of the saints wilt thou turn ? 2 For wrath killeth the foolish man, and envy slayeth the silly one . 3 I have seen the foolish taking root : but suddenly I cursed his habitation.4 His children are far from safety, and they are crushed in the gate, neither is there any to deliver them. 5 Whose harvest the hungry eateth up , and taketh it even out of the thorns, and the robber swalloweth up their substance.6 Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground;7 Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks flyupward . 8 I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause:9 Which doeth great things and unsearchable ; marvellous things without number:10 Who givethrain upon the earth, and sendethwaters upon the fields:11 To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety.12 He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.13 He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong . 14 They meet with darkness in the daytime, and grope in the noonday as in the night.15 But he saveth the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty.16 So the poor hath hope, and iniquity stoppeth her mouth.17 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth : therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:18 For he maketh sore , and bindeth up : he woundeth , and his hands make whole . 19 He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. 20 In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword.21 Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue: neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh . 22 At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh : neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth.23 For thou shalt be in league with the stones of the field: and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with thee. 24 And thou shalt know that thy tabernacle shall be in peace; and thou shalt visit thy habitation, and shalt not sin . 25 Thou shalt know also that thy seed shall be great, and thine offspring as the grass of the earth.26 Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in in his season.27 Lo this, we have searched it, so it is; hear it, and know thou it for thy good.
