Do Not Fake It

Hebrews 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

Yet the Lord is merciful! The person that will not receive forgiveness is that one that refuses to repent and turn away from evil ways.

Is the Lord Jesus, pleasing him first place in your heart? You may have slipped! Like the prodigal, you can go home today, daddy is waiting with open arms. Yes, Jesus’s blood paved the way!

Pretending to still get things together without the inward witness of the Holy Spirit will only land one deeper into mire. Yet Christ Jesus is only a call away! I mean, why don’t you just quit faking it? Jesus cares!!!!

Get acquainted or reacquainted with The Word of God. It fails not! Never! Let the fire of the Holy Spirit ignite your Spirit and transform thee!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

You Can Talk! He Listens! He Will Act!

It’s that moment again! I don’t know about you, but sometimes, just to be sure, I ask God, “is that you?” You know those time when you are not very sure of yourself. I mean you know you heard quite alright, or maybe saw clearly, or better still something was impressed on your mind, a word from the scripture, a message stamped on your heart, beating so loudly!

Yet, you are like, is that you Lord? You know it is not from Satan, because you know He will fight to steal or tamper with whatever will be against him! Still, you want to be sure, it is not your head playing tricks on you. You want to be sure this is God. You ask, like many others before you for a sign. Like Gibeon in Judges 6, you want God to show you a sign that He is really the one speaking, and not a lying Spirit, the Spirit of error, or zeal motivated by self – what’s in it for me?.

Judges 6: 36 So Gideon said to God, If You will save Israel by my hand as You have said— 37 look, I shall put a fleece of wool on the threshing floor; if there is dew on the fleece only, and it is dry on all the ground, then I shall know that You will save Israel by my hand, as You have said. 38 And it was so. When he rose early the next morning and squeezed the fleece together, he wrung the dew out of the fleece, a bowlful of water. 39 Then Gideon said to God, “Do not be angry with me, but let me speak just once more: Let me test, I pray, just once more with the fleece; let it now be dry only on the fleece, but on all the ground let there be dew.” 40 And God did so that night. It was dry on the fleece only, but there was dew on all the ground.

In my case, I said to God, why are you keeping silent? Talk to me! I heard Him speak right away, not like in recent times, so I was like, is that you Lord?. He responded right away! So I said, show me a sign that you are the one really talking to me and not myself talking to myself! I do speak to myself! Crazy right? Well, my spirit talks to my soul and my soul moves my body as required. So I do talk to myself! You will catch that one day!

So the Lord asked me a question! What do you see on your horizon? I answered right away without so much as a thought. God said that is Me. You would not have been able to see what your saw without Me with you!

So friends, what do you see on your horizon? Can you see at all? Is it clear or blurry? Talk to God about it! He is readily available to calm your fears and strengthen you with might by His Holy Spirit in your inner manEphesian 3:16. You must be born again though! You must consciously cultivate a relationship with Jesus Christ. Ask Him into your heart, to forgive you and cleanse you of all unrighteousness. Tell Him to come and abide with you. Oh, friends, He really wants to be with you! Jesus Christ is the friend that sticks closer than a brotherProverbs 18:24. Talk to Him right now!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Clothed In Glory!

Hebrews 2:6 But one testified in a certain place, saying: “What is man that You are mindful of him, Or the son of man that You take care of him?You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor,  And set him over the works of Your hands. You have put all things in subjection under his feet.”

Eagles wingsJust as Jeremiah 1:5 said this of you. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;  I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

You have been crowned with glory and honor! Yes! Glory and honor are yours. It is your right and portion, your inheritance! You did nothing to obtain or receive it. It was a gift from God, your creator, Father, and Savior.

Psalms 8:4 also said this of you:

What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?
For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.

You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,
All sheep and oxen—
Even the beasts of the field,
The birds of the air,
And the fish of the sea
That pass through the paths of the seas.

Lord, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth!

You sure need some catching up to do! You must walk in the fullness of all that is yours in Christ Jesus. You must walk in the fullness of what has been wrought for you before the foundation of the world was laid.

You have wings like eagles, use them to soar! You are a success, an enigma – be as it may, a force of grace and love, and you carry the radiant Glory of His love – Hebrew 1:3.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Restoring Altars! Broken Order!

fb_img_1527485149865701125245.jpg1 Kings 18:30 Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come near to me.” So all the people came near to him. And he repaired the altar of the Lord that was broken down. 31 And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord had come, saying, “Israel shall be your name.” 32 Then with the stones, he built an altar in the name of the Lord; and he made a trench around the altar large enough to hold two seahs of seed. 33 And he put the wood in order, cut the bull in pieces, and laid it on the wood, and said, “Fill four waterpots with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice and on the wood.”

The altar of our hearts that is broken down must be repaired so we can offer an acceptable sacrifice from it. Oh Lord, repair the altar of our hearts. Let the fire fall! Let old ruins be rebuilt! 

When the fire falls:

11The Lord will guide you continually,
And satisfy your soul in drought,
And strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
12 Those from among you
Shall build the old waste places;
You shall raise up the foundations of many generations;
And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach,
The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In. Isaiah 58: 11

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

When The Fire Falls! Result!

Let the fire fall! Let the fire fall on me Oh Lord and ignite your Spirit within me. Let the fire of God Most High fall upon my family, Church, Community, and Nation and set our soul on fire! We want to see Jesus lifted high, a banner that flies across the land, that all men may see and know, that He is the way to Heaven! 

Oh that the fire will fall upon us and cause rivers of living water to flow from out of us –John 7:38. Let this living water flow to quench other’s thirst. Bless me and make me a blessing Lord – Genesis 12:2.

a-revival-frank-bartlemanYou Oh Lord!, you are a consuming fire – Hebrews 12:29, Deuteronomy 4:24. And you, Heavenly Father, lives within us by your Holy Spirit  – Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

I pray Oh Lord in Jesus mighty name that your living water will flow out of me to refresh troubled souls, use me to quench the thirst for others. And as a consuming fire that dwells within me, let the fire flow out of me to consume every wickedness wherever I am.

Make me terror to the Kingdom of darkness. Let the dread of Christ in me fall upon every force of darkness as they come in contact with me. Let strangers flee out of their hidden places as I open my mouth and you fill it up with your wordsPsalms 18:44-45.

This I pray in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

 

Discernment! Two Way Mirror!

The gift of discernment does not only tell you about truth and lies, it also tells you about situations unfolding before you, or about people, what they are saying, the lie and acts put out, versus who they really are. Their motives!

Discernment may be a burden if handled by self! It is a gift of the spirit and should be treated as such.

Discernment also checks the discerning, it reveals to you your own motives, errors or what not. This helps you to treat your own illness – remove the log from your own eyes, and to be understanding, forgiving and less critical of others.

However, being able to smell a lie, see, hear and discern duplicity and inauthenticity a mile away, will alter your action and reaction to a situation. You can see the game playing right before your eyes. It may become difficult to keep a straight face and allow the Spirit to work it out! Ask for grace here!

Jesus Christ knew Judas was a thief, yet He put him in charge of the ministry’s finance. Jesus knew he will betray him, yet he kept him close – John 12:5-6, John 13:28-29, Luke 22:3

If you and I hear what is not spoken, see what is invisible, like an X-ray eye, will we be able to look people in the face? Look at ourselves?

I guess not! Purge, therefore, the evil from within and among you says the Lord!

We all, therefore, need to cultivate the presence of the Holy Spirit, to help us in the renewing of our minds.

May the fire of the Holy Spirit purify our hearts, body, and soul! Only then can we really be a living sacrifice unto the Lord our God.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Malleable Hearts! Touched By Fire!

Let the fire fall Oh Lord! Let your fire consume every hardness out of our hearts. 

Open our hearts Oh Lord! Enlarge the place of our tent – heart, and mind! Let every unforgiveness be removed, that our hearts might be malleable to receive of thee. Matthew 18:35 “So My heavenly Father also will do to you if each of you, from his heart, does not forgive his brother his trespasses.”

 

Let our hearts capacity increase to see a glimpse of your awesomeness so we may receive all that you have for us this season.

Oh, Lord! Let your fire fall! Let your glory fill your house – our lives  – 1Kings 8:11. Let every veil covering our eyes fall off, the web of deceit causing us to stumble be licked up by your fire, and refocus our gaze on you, so we may be strengthened in Jesus Mighty name. Amen

Father, let fire fall! Let it consume everything in our lives that is not of you. Every obstacle to the manifestation of your promises in our lives, seed of unbelief, every form of opposition, oppression, and condemnation, and all the errors of our ways. 

As you have spoken with your mouth this season Lord, let your hand fulfill it that we may bless your holy name like King Solomon did in 1 King 8:15 and 20.

Glory, honor, and adoration to you who sits upon the circle of the earth – Isaiah 40:22

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
