Bringing Down The Giants

December  19th  2017

This post is about a  dream.

In the dream, I came face to face with 2 giants at separate times. The first one came in my face trying to intimidated me with his physical appearance and tall stature. I quickly felt the power of the Holy Spirit rise up in me and I commanded it to leave now. The second giant came my way and even more furious than the first giant. This giant looked very Continue reading Bringing Down The Giants

Eventful situation to take place December 7, 2017

Couple of months ago, while waiting on the Lord, I heard the Lord say, “A bomb will go off” on December 7, 2017.  The Lord God did not go into details. I cannot say if this will be a literally bomb or a situation that will be so big it will be devastating.

UPDATE – 12/7/17:

Shattered!

DEPRESSION. MENTAL ILLNESS. It’s getting a lot of attention nowadays but only after the suffering individual has acted on a lingering thoughts to hurt him/herself or hurt others. Most medical insurance has little to nothing to offer an individual suffering from depression as well. I empathize. I’ve been there.

We may walk past 10 or more individuals in one day and not know the troubles of their hearts. It’s the norm in our society.            “You got your problems and I’ve got mine.”  We dare not open our mouth and intervene when we see injustice because we don’t want that dominating individual lashing out on us so we keep it moving. With the public violence desensitizing our conscience it’s often difficult to think, “I can make an impact, my efforts will actually make a difference.”

Depression can be attributed to many life circumstances be it physical, emotional, verbal abuse,  the lose of a loved one, sickness, delayed/aborted expectations, unaccomplished goals, body image distortion, hormonal, etc.  What we watch and listen to can also  From there an individual may fall in one or more categories of depression:

  • Major Depression.
  • Persistent Depressive Disorder.
  • Bipolar Disorder.
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
  • Psychotic Depression.
  • Postpartum Depression (After giving birth)
  • Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)
  • ‘Situational’ Depression.

Spiritually speaking our thought life is the first access that the enemy will try to breach

Proverb 13:12 ~ Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

Isn’t that exactly how one feels when depressed? You may have experienced different lengths of a depression.  Typica

Tears were always at the edge of my eyes, thoughts of hopelessness every second of the day. No appetite, no strength, feelings of anxiety became my norm. And being a well-seseasoned born again, holy spirit filled believer in Jesus Christ, no less! No matter the circumstance that brought on the depressed state: lost of loved one, broken relationship, rejection, abusive relationships of parent/child or spouses, etc these issues must be addressed. Speak to those around you, give a short word of encouragement no matter the person’s demeanor, share the HOPE only found in Lord Jesus Christ. It’s not easy to spot a depressed person. They usually have the brightest smile, loudest laugh, most accomplished individual, yet they are dying slowly inside. They struggle with thoughts of suicide. My depression lasted for 3 months, relatively short compared to some that suffer for years! Thoughts of suicide came twice, and I’ll tell you what, those where the only times I felt a little bit of hope! If I end my life, I won’t have these hopeless thoughts anymore, I won’t have to feel sad and lonely anymore, I’ll be at peace, finally. What a load of lies from the pit of Hell! Read on to know how the Lord gave me victory and Christ is willing to do the same for anyone!

American Civil War 2.0?

This racial division and influx of protesting is the recipe for what I’ve termed, “The Great Distraction” for what is about to take place in America. Our enemies maybe looking at America sitting back waiting for it to Continue reading American Civil War 2.0?

His Body

 

I am preparing my body to a great awakening that will take place, this awakening will show everyone where they stand before me holy or not. “It’s too hard,” they say,” how can we stay holy in such a world with all the types of contaminates.” They do not curb their lust and worldly desires. They think doing certain things will not offend me. They believe the lies of the enemy and fall for the things that brings death. What are these things you ask?

Sexual immorality. Believers who claim they love me and honor me defile their marriage bed with sexual immoral acts. They bring things of the world into what I have consecrated in marriage. They say it’s alright if we do such things, we are married. We are OK before the Lord our God. As if marriage covers a multitude of sins. No, It is I, the Lord, with my love for the world I had my son Jesus, the Christ, to die a horrible death. It is the love that we share that a multitude of sins can be covered.

Perversion of justice to those who do not know me. Instead of bringing light to the darkness to those who do not know me, they become a stumbling block to them. They say and think in their hearts, “As Christian’s we do not have to “like” them because they are not of us.” These believers are lamps beneath a table not up on the table where others can see and find their way out. They keep their mouths shut when they see sin. They do not open their mouths and speak life and truth into the lives of those who need it. They read the scriptures; they know that I can set the captives free but they keep silent as if I am a God who shows favoritism, or a God of the elite.

I am the Lord God who wants to bring my love to the broken hearted, hope to the hopeless, and faith to the faithless. My church, my body, you are my hands, you are my feet, you are my mouth. I have great and wonderful things to do through you, but I must go by other means to get them done.

Many sign up to work but only a few show up to actually work. Some thinks this is all I need to get to heaven, accept Jesus and do “good” in life and I’m in heaven. They do not follow the scriptures and what I  have required my people to do in this earth. I have required prayer, mercy and love, which will hold back the gates of hades and bring the lost to myself. I need committed people, those who will consecrate themselves and ask of my will in their lives. I know the hearts of all men, I will lay my purpose and my vision into the hearts of those who I see committed to my ways, says the Lord God.

Believe then Receive

You have to accept the things that I want to give to you, for which you have asked of me.
You ask and ask, yet when I’m giving you the very thing you requested of me, you do not receive it because you keep doubting and wondering, “Will I really be delivered from this situation?” or “When will I receive favor in this area of my life?” Without faith it is impossible to please me. When you ask BELIEVE and you will receive.

If UPS or Fed-Ex is to deliver you a package with your name on it, but you have to sign your name to receive it. You proceed to sign your name and receive the package because you purchased (asked for) the item and you were waiting in expectation for it. Its the same application with the things of God.

Many packages, I have sent to your address with your name on it, but the package cannot be left with you because you did not believe you would really receive it. Is the Lord’s arm too short? I AM the God of the impossible. I Am also the God who cares and want to answer even the smallest desires of your heart.

The package has been sent. Sign your name to receive it with the measure of faith I have given you. With this, your faith will increase, giving you the ability to believe and trust in me for your EVERY need, big or small. Some packages have been stamped, “Return to Sender” because you did not believe and wait in expectation.

Believe and you will receive! Believe and you will receive! Believe and you will receive!

Psalms 5:3~ In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.

Matthew 21:22~ “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.

Tell me what you see

Given 12/12/09

As my Prophets speak my word and the things that are to come to past, some will hear and receive the word but in their hearts they will formulate their own perception of what is to come. The people will not accept the conditions in which they are to manifest. Just as the Pharisees and Sadducees did not accept me as their Messiah because they did not accept the conditions in which I came. The prophecies were being fulfilled right before their eyes but they would not accept its conditions. The people were looking to crown another King on this earth, but my Kingdom was and is not of this world.

The people in this society will be in the same mind-set. The spirit of religion will overtake them (just as the Pharisees and Sadducees) causing them to miss the very thing unfolding before their eyes, which is me and the relationship that I want to establish with them.

My Spirit must reside in you. You must be sealed with it so you will not miss your call to repentance, your call to salvation, your call to deeper depths in me.

“The Pharisees and Sadducees came to Jesus and tested him by asking him to show them a sign from heaven.~ Matthew 16:1  A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a miraculous sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.” Jesus then left them and went away. ~Matthew 16:4 “Then they understood that he was not telling them to guard against the yeast used in bread, but against the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.~ Matthew 16:11[:]

Crowns

While in praying in the spirit the other day, the Lord showed me a vision.

similar picture of what I saw in the vision

I saw many crowns lined up on individual purple satin square pillows. The crowns were solid rich gold with all sorts and colors of beautiful gems in them. I heard the voice of the Lord say, “Tell my children I have crowns waiting for them. Many crowns that I will bestow upon my faithful ones who have overcome”

Praise God!

Holy Desires

November 10, 2009

 

Desire:  to wish or long for, want, craves. To express a wish for.

  • What makes them Holy?  ~They are from God, and God is Holy.
  • Holy desires have a divine purpose to achieve and establish God’s  plan

In our lives which also involves other people.

  • We should look past ourselves when we pray for our hearts desires
  • As we desire, we will began to speak it. In order for the Lord’s plan to be established here on earth it must be spoken in the authority given to us in the name of Jesus.

Some Holy desires may seem personal for example “I want a Mercedes Benz.”

You start to burn with that desire and after you’ve followed biblical applications and leaving it to God’s will (counsel with others, Can I afford such a purchase?)

You believe and start speaking this desire into the earth.

Now the Lord has blessed you with this vehicle and you thank God for such a

blessing and that’s it, right?  Well, no, it doesn’t stop there. That testimony of yours will help someone else believe God for a Holy desire that the Lord has put on their heart. It’s a ripple effect.

The enemy is aware that our blessing(s) will bless another so his goal is to try his best to keep our blessing from taking place. These are some situations we might be faced with:

1. You don’t pray about you’re desire (ask and you shall receive)-Matthew 21:22 John 14:13

2. You doubt if it possible (without faith it is impossible to please God) – Hebrews 11:6

3. You don’t have the right motives (you have not because you ask with the wrong motives)-James 4:3

4. You try to achieve this desire in your own strength. (Not by might nor by power

but by my spirit says the Lord Almighty) – Zechariah 4:6

How could your blessing, bless another person? Think about it. Our blessing brings the glory to God. The enemy wanted and still want the glory that is rightfully God’s; hence the reason of his fallen state.

Hebrews 11:6 – And without faith it is impossible to please God..

Pleasing God means he gets all the glory before and after.

If we do not stand in faith, He will not get the glory He deserves.

This is what the enemy wants to happen.

As we keep believing, hoping, and waiting on God for our need, the devil is outdone. The enemy would say to himself, “These people just keep believing, they are keeping their faith.” We start receiveing blessings in finances, children, peace, and salvation. And to think all of this started with a holy desire.

AUTHORITY- Who really is in charge?

 Authority –the right and power to command, enfore laws, exact obedience, determine, or judge. (The authoriy in Jesus’s name. His strength is perfect. 2Corinth 12:8) 

 Christ had to manifest himself to human form( fully God, fully man) because:

  1.  A Spirit has no authority on this earth (I believe this is why the

uses us believers as his vessel) –Psalm 115:5-7,16

  1. Take back the authority Adam lost to the devil.

(Dominon was given to Adam)- Genesis 1:26

  1. To establish the word of God on earth(the new covenant) and fulfill the prophecies- Matthew 4:17

 

The enemy desires as well, but his desires are anything but holy.

(Yes, even angles, fallen or not, desire)-1Peter 1:12

I ask the lord, “You created him, how could he possible think he could out do you; the creator of heaven and earth.”

His response to me; I created all living things with a desire to serve and bring glory to me. I am God, this is an attribute of mine anthing else is not of me. If you force a child to do something they don’t want to do, yet they do it out of fear or intimidation than you are not in authority. But the child that does something you ask them and they willingly and obediently do it (even if its not of their main interest) then that person truly has the authority because the task was completed with a mind of love and respect

If you have to force, manipulate put fear into someone to do something you ask of them, then you do no have authority. The person you are bossing around is the one in authority because they are completing the task out of their own strength.

At any moment that person can turn back to you and refuse any task you have asked of him/her. The person in proper authority gets the task done through empowering the person with words of encouragement, taking a genuine interest in their life, giving ear to that person’s concerns .

What does authority have to do with having holy desires?

The Lord will not force his will on us, he says his yolk is

easy and his burden is light. What he will do is stir our hearts

with a desire that we will ask him to help us acheive. Praying

In the authority that we have in Jesus name asking him for his will and giving him complete lordship over our life (a non-believer or back-slider may not be engaged in prayer. This is where conviction by the power of the Holy Spirit comes in.)

As we let go and let Him work in us and through us; his Kingdom’s plan will be established here on earth using us as vessels.

If it is his will for us, our faith mixed with the Word of God will bring it to past.

IN CONCLUSION

Ways to know if a desire is truly from God:

1. It does not go away easily; it becomes a burning passion in your heart to           further the kingdom of God.

2. Other believers’ share the same/similar experience (encourages others to not give up, keep praying and believing)

3. It lines up with one or more of God’s promises to us as his children.

WHAT IS OUR PART

1. Asking with the right motive

2. Pray (leave it to Jesus in His strength it won’t happen on your own)

3. Believe it; start speaking it (back it up with scripture)

4. Wait on the Lord; it must happen in his timing (the hardest part)

5. Giving glory to God until the desire manifest in the natural.

**Although this may be a holy desire, we have our part to do as well. Our God is just and orderly; he will require all the necessary steps to see his plan be established. Our enemy is always accusing us before the Lord, so we should

leave no open gates for him to tamper with (doesn’t mean he won’t try)

 WHAT CAN A HOLY DESIRE ACCOMPLISH?

 1.  It will sanctify the believer

2.  It will bring salvation to the lost (act 13:6-12 emphasize verse 7 and 12)

3.  It will heal the sick who is believing for healing

4.  It will bring restoration to marriages, families, and friends

5.  It will usher us into our divine calling

This is how the Lord works through his people; believers and non-believers into a position of holiness serving God, waiting on the return of the Christ.

“Our desires are not safe with satan, for satan desires to kill, steal and destroy all of our dreams.  As we give the Lord the desires of our inner most being, God Himself will take those desires and return them to us with the tools we need to cultivate “the garden of our desires”.  But we must first give them to Him, so He can return them to us with all we need to work with as we witness our desires “spring forth” in due season. http://www.christianestateplanning.net)

 

What are you asking God?

Given 11-19-09

You ever had a question or concern that you wanted to hear from God about? You want to know how to do it his way so you won’t fail at trying to complete the task in your own strength. Well here is some fresh revelation the Lord put on my heart regarding inquiring of him.

It is good to inquire of the Lord. Why do so many fail to follow this step when trying to figure out how to decide on something? Some doubt because they are not sure if they can truly hear his voice of God. To know the voice of God you must familiarize yourself with his voice. Be still before him and ask questions and state your concerns to him and he will answer you. His voice will likely sound like your “thinking”  voice. (It may vary for others.) You cannot leave any room for doubt in your mind. The Lord works with your faith; remember without faith it is impossible to please God.

Some fear they will be deceived by the enemy. The answers you receive should bring three things Faith, Hope, and Love (even Peace) If you are left with fear, doubt, hopelessness, hate, confusion then it is not of the Lord. Either you are being deceived by the enemy or you are operating in your own strength and imagination. The thoughts should come spontaneously and flow like water; they should bring you closer God.

Here are some thoughts to keep in mind in order to receive from God:

  1. Come before the Lord with an open heart. Acknowledge his ability to answer your inquiry of him.
  2. Do not limit God by putting time restraints or thinking he will not answer your question or concerns. (1Peter 5:7 Cast all his cares on him because he cares for you)
  3. Wait and expect an answer from him(Psalm 5:3 In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.) At times the answer may come as you are in the actual situation. If you did not receive an answer or wasn’t sure, approach him again. It may be that he has given you an answer but your spirit did not receive it for various reasons (i.e. distractions) . The Lord will not cause you to be confused.
  4. If you are asking the Lord a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ question, do not be surprised when he says ‘No’. It may not be in the right timing or it may not be his will for you at all.
  5. When expecting a response don’t expect some King James version response. The Lord will respond to your personality but not in any offensive, sarcastic, demeaning way. He is a gentleman . It is the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit, responding to you. He is talking to your spirit. Spirit to spirit. With that said, If you have not accepted Jesus Christ ,the son of God, as your Lord and Savior then you will have a hard time trying to hear the Holy Spirit. It’s not impossible John 14:17 The Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him
  6. Every born again believer of Jesus Christ is able to hear from God. The Lord wants nothing more than to communicate with his children.
  7. If  you do not have the time to put aside to sit and hear from God, than make the time (There must be something that you can sacrifice doing in order to receive from him.) If you normally do take time to hear from him, yet you are busy running errands and working over time, then out of his grace and mercy upon us he will talk to us as we ask him. (This holds true for us all.)

We are not to neglect the precious time we are to have with the Lord God. He is our source, our fuel. We must fuel up on him or do you know what will happen? Thats right you’ll run out of gas and the enemy loves to prey on God’s children especially the ones who have run out on their source, God. He loves us dearly and wants his children to live life and live it abundantly in Him.

..and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. John 10:4

Who’s will is it?

 

October 10, 2009
You’ve asked for the will of God in your life.
Remember when Jesus asked this He was faced with some hard pressed situations. The will of God is not easy to accomplish because His will has nothing to do with you it has to do with everyone else except you.
That doesn’t mean you don’t matter to him, it means that God’s will matters to you and you want to be part of what He is doing on the earth and He will accomplish it through those who are willing and obeident.
Can the will of God be accomplished even though it seems so hard? Yes! With His strength. (1peter 4:11) Christ is our example. He showed us that it is possible. It’s a good and honorable thing to ask God for his will to be done in your life but don’t mistake his perfect will to be glamourous with spernatural mircales happening left and right. It’s a job. God has a plan and it is a 24/7, 365, nonstop plan of bringing a fallen world back to him.
When you think of being Christ-like you think of being kind, praticing the 9 fruits of the Spirit. Well thats correct but remember Christ suffered. He was never “comfortable” in life from birth to death. His life did not gain anything but lost it in doing His father’s will.
(Isiaiha 53, John 10:17,James 1:2-4, 1peter 4:1-2)
Rearrange your thought patterns. If you think you are suppose to live comfortably with little problems such as: fear, heartaches, lacking in finances, than you will think you are at a disadvantage when actually as a follower of Christ you are living a life of humility without even relazing it.(Proverbs 15:33)
Does your Father want you to be blessed? Yes!
sickness free? Yes! Its all under the blood of Jesus. Just don’t lose heart when it goes the opposite way. The enemy will use it to his advantage to oppress you with whatever you are fearful or worried about. Stand on the promises. Stand in faith. Take the stand, you are a tree planted by the waters your roots go deep. No storm can uplift you from where you are planted (Psalms 1:3, Jeremiah 17:8)
He sees you, He knows you and He calls you by name.
Call out to your Father. His pure unconditional love will abound to you.

 

His perfect will

The Holy Spirit Purple=my thoughts Gray=scripture

 
This entry was mostly focused on Matthew 26:40-45
but other scriptures as well. Scriptures added within
the sentences were brought to my memory from the Lord to confirm his word to me.
(Matthew26:40) He returned to his disciples and found them sleeping . (why were they sleeping so much I asked the Lord?) *because their flesh was weak only made strong through me in prayer.* Could you not keep watch with me for one hour? He asked Peter.
(Matthew26: 41) Watch and pray so that you will *you willfully not fall into temptation. What is temptation?(as if I didn’t knowYour own desires which are not always Godly. The spirit is willing,but the body is weak.
(1Corinth 9:27-But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified)
(Matthew26: 43) He again found them sleeping because their eyes were heavy. There is also spiritual sleeping. Some people spiritual eyes are so heavy that they cannot stay alert to pray.
 
(Matthew26:45) Are you still sleeping and resting? Look the hour is near…when the Son of Man will return
This is what I ask my people what will it take for their eyes to open up to see the evil that they are living in.
I am a just God and I will judge according to my word.
(John 12:48-There is a judge for the one who rejects
me and does not accept my words; that very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day.)
(Matthew26:46) Rise, let us go! Here comes my betrayer!
The enemy is in the world. He is being made
stronger. My people must rise. My church must wake up!
(Matt 16:18-And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it) We need to pray. The church needs to pray!
Matthew 26:37-38
Yes, I am sorrowful and troubled, My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me. This is what I ask of my people. (2Chronicles 7:14-If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.)
This is Gethsemane all over again. We (the church) are being pressed down. Fear not. I have overcome the world! I still reign. I am sovereign. I am God Almighty. With me you will overcome. Thank you Lord!
Some of my people say I have their heart but they cannot feel my sorrow for the world because they have not truly given their heart to me. I love all my children. I love the world that is why I sent my son, Jesus Christ, not to condemn it but to save it through him. (John 3:17-For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him)
I asked will we rise Lord, will the church rise?
Some will fail, it is written. I’m reminded of the
(1 Peter 4:17-For it is time for judgment to begin with the family of God; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?) and (Matt 3:12-His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”) Some who say they know me will stay behind.
(Matthew 26:56) Then all the disciples deserted him fled
how quick we are to leave you Lord. When trouble comes, we go right back to where you took us out of.
We go into our little hiding place or just deny you all together.
I’m reminded of Matthew 7:26-27-But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash)
(Matthew 17:5) A voice from the cloud said,
“This is my son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.
Listen to him!  We are disobeying if we are
led by the Holy Spirit to do or say something yet refuse to obey by doubting. God has commanded us to listen to Him.
