My Two Cents ….

One thing I have noticed (if I can share my two cents) … is how lethargic people are to prophecy. The word tells us not to despise prophecy another version says not treat prophecy with contempt. Even in the old testament people told the prophets to stop prophesying!
Most of us run to horoscopes and fortune tellers and palm-readers, taro cards and the like but never think to seek the Creator of all things for direction and to know what the future holds for them.
Prophecy wasn’t given to us to simply “tickle our fancy” but to set our lives in motion, to unlock things, to establish, to encourage, edify and comfort and to give direction. Prophecy helps you set focus, tells you what’s worth fighting for and what just isn’t worth it. Paul told Timothy to keep the prophecies made about him and to recall them so that he may fight the battle well.
Without a vision/prophetic vision people perish. It is important for us to know what God’s thoughts toward us are so we do not settle and conform to just anything an anyone. It is important to know what God wants to establish in our lives so that we don’t waste time with dead things. It is important that we know where God wants to take us so that we don’t wonder around the mountain for 40years!

I dare you all to seek out the word of the Lord for your lives.

p.s. Yes, He is a know it all

Sharing is Caring Part III

I just wanted to share something I have been pondeing on.

It is important that we stay sober and vigilant in everything that we do.

2 Peter 5:8 tells us

“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”

Our adversary, the devil, is sneaky, he is cunning and he is a liar and seeking to do nothing but destroy.

I know lately God has been showing me the little things that I do or say, the little things that I choose to look over.

He has been showing me how the one thing I tend to overlook can become a foothold  for the enemy to come right on in.

God has been showing me how the little things I say can create a whirl-wind of problems.

Sometimes we as people focus on the “BIG” things … all the while looking over the small things because

“Hey what can something that small really do?”

Well, the word says

“Do not despise small beginnings”.

and it tells us that in James 3

“big ships are steered by small rudders”

Although those scriptures are used in a different context I just want to give to the picture of how we should not over look small things.

My Apostle and Prophetess always say to “pay attention to the details!”

The Song of Solomon says

“Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.”  

I ask God all the time show me those little things that can hinder me from hearing you, those little things that grieve you!

It reminds me of when I am cleaning and I continue to move the obvious things that are out-of-place, once they have been put back in their proper place I am now stuck with a lot of little things and my house is still a mess!

So, instead of taking the time to sort through the small things, I throw them in another pile and once I am done with I did not effectively sort through and remove the junk I just made it into some thing larger.

What you do not confront now, will confront you later.

So, I can skip around my junk all day and for the next few weeks but a day is going to come when I am going to have to deal with it and by then more than likely it is larger than before.

Pray and ask God to show you those “small” things that can give place to the enemy.

We cannot run around here like those who have no hope do! We cannot run around saying what ever we feel in that instant, we cannot be controlled by our shaky little emotions.

But we are to go forth in confidence, and knowing that our God is great and if we call on Him He will surely deliver us from our troubles.

The word says to pray about EVERYTHING.

We have to come to a point in our walk in relationship with Christ that we say “Ok, that is enough of that. Time to put this behind me”

I believe for each level in Christ that we climb to we come to those pivotal moments where we either accept and mature or we don’t.

I pray that you be quick to respond and correct the situation through help and guidance of the Holy  Spirit !

We serve a good God who is patient and who said that the perfect work He has begun in us He will complete.

 

Just wanted to share …

Oh and Happy Blogging!    


Fork in the Road ….

Fork in the Road

 

I think everyone comes to a point in their life where they have to decide whether or not to believe.

 

I see it almost as being like a fork in the road …

I don’t care if you have been in this walk for the last 25 years, everyone comes to a point where they have decide if they will continue in this journey in Christ or will I decide to throw away and forget (or at least try) all that God has done and showed me.

 I believe that with every decision you bring yourself into a new season … with every revelation you bring yourself into a new “realm” of knowing of God as well as yourself. You have a new understanding of things and how you see them. Even though you may have to adapt … to this new level, you have to adapt to the new revelation, you have to adapt to the new awareness of the spirit of God that is at work in you, you have to adapt to the new you.

You have to adapt to the new level of belief.

I think you come to this “fork in the road” and its like God is trying to say to you … are you ready to go further? Are you ready to go deeper? Are you ready to take your belief and faith to another level?

… so I pray today that you are willing and ready to take your belief to a new place because honestly some people don’t … they get to the fork become disgruntled, disheveled and frustrated and decide to walk away from it all.

But then part of them is still tormented because they still believe and  just in that brief moment of doubt you walked away.

I pray that makes sense  …

but I pray you accept today, accept a new level of belief. I pray that we go forth in this year being fully convinced, convinced that God is real and he reigns, convinced of Gods word that it is alive and very much active, convinced that His word is alive and active in our lives and the lives of those around us.

God Bless.


A New Season …

So, I am feeling “some type of way” this evening.

I told my husband and he asked if I was sad, if I was hungry .. perhaps even thirsty. God Bless him.

But it is almost a sadness, honestly.

In the wake of the devastation of losing the precious lives of teachers and students in Newton, Connecticut … I as well found out a high school classmate committed suicide this past weekend.

But it makes me aware of how important it is for us as believers to be in place. The harvest is plenty but the laborers are few and there is a harvest out there waiting. Romans 8:20 says “the creature groans in anticipation for the sons of glory to be revealed.”

I believe that time is upon us when the son’s of glory is to be revealed Isaiah 60 says

“Arise and shine for your light has come  and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the people but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.”

I believe a darkness is over the earth and thick darkness is over the people and has blinded them from seeing any hope .. has blinded them from seeing any glimpse of light.

They have been blinded in the grips of despair, blinded by fear, blinded by loneliness, blinded by anxieties, blinded by depression, blinded by doubts of tomorrow. Some are blinded by the grips of death, blinded by grief, blinded by guilt, blinded by shame .. and held and subjected to its bondage.

They walk around in bondage, they roam to and fro looking for one to set them free. Looking for one to lend them a hand and not just simply place them at the gate called “Beautiful” but they are looking for one to tell them to get up and walk and be free.

They are looking for us to set them free from the chains and shackles that hold them in place and in subjection to its yet demanding laws.

We need to understand that we are the church .. not the building .. the building cannot declare the word of the true and living word. The call and demand was not placed on the building but within you and me.

It is time for us to go .. the great commission … to go forth making disciples of all men baptizing them in the name of Father, of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.

We have already been equipped and anointed … we have already been given the authority.

It is time for the Son’s of Glory to be revealed.

In this next season it will be a dangerous thing for us not to be prophetic and not in the sense of carrying a title of a prophet … but it will be a dangerous thing for us not to recognize the voice and unctions of God .. and then to be able to carry out the instruction.

It will be a dangerous thing not to have a relationship … and I am saying this to those who are saved,  who have become new creatures yet have not truly tried to pursue a closer relationship with our creator. For those who are satisfied with Him being savior and not Lord.

He said He’s rather us be hot or cold .. .because then He knows exactly how to deal with us and supply us with the grace we need.

I do not know how to handle a person that I do not know whether or not your are for me or against me.

If I know you like me I can handle you accordingly … if I know you hate me … I can handle you accordingly but if I do not know where you stand then I do not know how to handle you.

We all know “wishy-washy” people we do not know where they stand with us from day to day.

Like wise with our God.

In this season … decide whether you will be hot or cold.

The harvest is plenty and it will be time for the laborers to go out in the field. We need to make sure our hands are planted firmly to the plow, for anyone who looks back is not fit.

The glory is coming and it will be upon His son’s and when the glory rises it will shine on those who are ready and in place.

I pray that you all be the light in the darkness and that  we are all ready when His glory rises. I pray that we all carry a “Here I am Lord” in our spirit and in our hearts .. at all times. I pray we know that the present sufferings are not worth comparing with glory that will be revealed. I pray that in this season our ears and eyes are opened .. so that we can hear the Lord is saying to His church. I pray that we receive it without hesitation and without hardness of heart. “when you hear my voice harden not your heart”.

I pray for a deeper sense of urgency, a deeper relationship, a deeper thirst and hunger for the things of God, a deep thirst for righteousness. I pray that son’s of glory be revealed quickly. That these people will know there is still hope even in the midst of the dark and dense fog of despair.

I pray for a weight to fall on the saints of God that we pray without ceasing .. that we will watch as well as pray. That we do not be caught off guard by the return of our Lord and Savior, by the return of our King for His people .. because He comes quickly.

Let us not get caught up in the things we can see. … for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal.

Revelation 3:15-17

New International Version (NIV)

15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

Romans 8:18-24

New International Version (NIV)

Present Suffering and Future Glory

18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that[a] the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.

22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have?

Isaiah 60

New International Version (NIV)

The Glory of Zion

60 “Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth
and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your dawn.

Matthew 9:35-38

New International Version (NIV)

The Workers Are Few

35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

Luke 9:62

New International Version (NIV)

62 Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.”

2 Corinthians 10:1-6

New International Version (NIV)

Paul’s Defense of His Ministry

10 By the humility and gentleness of Christ, I appeal to you—I, Paul, who am “timid” when face to face with you, but “bold” toward you when away! I beg you that when I come I may not have to be as bold as I expect to be toward some people who think that we live by the standards of this world.For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.


Randomness and that’s Ok …

So, I got my new laptop today and thought I would take it for a blogging spin. 

I am not a technology expert but I can say I am not too fond of this Windows 8. My husband tells me it’s because I have to get used to it .. but until then my mind is made up. I did however, manage to set up my Itunes account and that is only by the grace of God. 

On another note … of new things I have received these past few weeks that I do actually enjoy is our new kitten, Sophia! She is a complete joy and she is 9 weeks old. We got her when she was 6 weeks only because her mother disowned her. 

So ,we are now new and very proud cat owners LOL. 

Our lovely Sophia.

Our lovely Sophia.

I can honestly say that Sophia is enjoying my new laptop than I am the moment and that is completely fine with me. .. at least I will get my money’s worth with her opening every application there is! 

That is all for now and this post is completely random and pointless ..

..and that’s OK. 

God Bless and Happy Blogging 


It’s Only Through Faith … ..

Right now I feel so stirred up in my spirit. I love it … and I wouldn’t trade this moment or feeling … this experience for anything in the world. I say that because honestly … some days I feel like a nut and some days a I don’t.

Unfortunately, I was never promised that I would feel anointed everyday … but I am still required to believe that I am through my faith.

I am required to believe that I am what and who my father (the Great I Am) .. says I am ( I hope that made sense LOL).   

I was given a oppurtunity to share a revelation my father gave me on yesterday …. 

In this book I am reading … there is a chapter about putting a demand on the anointing and on the spirit of God.

In the chapter it says that this demand is placed on God and we can place a demand on the anointing over an individual’s life through our faith.

We all have needs and fortunately for us we serve a God who can provide all of our needs according to His riches and glory.

But it is only our faith that can truly put a demand on the spirit of God.

It was through faith that the woman with issue of blood pressed her way to Jesus … only to touch the hem of His garment because she knew she would receive healing.

By doing this she placed a demand on His anointing for healing … and she was healed.

We know that faith without works is dead …

We know that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

He dares us to come to Him to ask, seek and knock.

Doing all this through faith places a demand on His spirit. He is not like man that He should lie …

He is our provider …

healer…

deliverer. …

and everything else …

so let’s not come to Him hap-hazardously(hope I spelled that right) and hoping that He will make a way … or that He will hopefully answer us. 

 

If He has given you a vision … He will provide the provision for it.

So, let’s put a demand on Him to move on our behalf we have to begin to work out the vision so that He can begin to supply the provision for it.

 In this season, let’s allow God to stretch us … allow Him to stretch our faith and our belief. Let’s take Him at His word. He says it … ok, great … that’s what it is.

Blessed our those who have not seen and still believed (paraphrased).

While the stretching of our faith may hurt at times, it may be uncomfortable .. allow Him to do it because He will certainly honor it …

think about everyone in the bible … who pressed their way to Jesus

and think about how He honored every one of them. Their faith put that demand on the mantle in His life.

As His children, as the heirs to the throne .. we must to do that and the more.

 

I love you all and God Bless …

 

(1) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (2) For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. (3) By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. (4) By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks. (5) By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God. (6) But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (7) By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith (Hebrews 11:1-7)


A Good Quote for the Day …

Jealousy is a poison you drink in hopes it will hurt someone else.
