Gift Of Tongues

Tongues is described as the least of all the gifts. The little toe compared to the foot of all our giftings in the body. Yet, many Christians are still tripping over misunderstandings concerning this heavenly manifestation, that comes with the in filling of the Holy Spirit.

Deana teaches on the gift of unknown tongues, including its prophesied purpose written in the Old Testament, and quoted by Peter on the day of Pentecost. A prophetic word of warning to the Church Of Revolving Doors, wraps up a scriptural look as to why tongues are for now, and for all who seek the in-filling of the Holy Spirit.

 

Wrapped In Love

Spiritual gifts are given in seed form, distributed by the Holy Spirit. WISDOM seeks them out. Understanding matures you in them, and knowledge brings skill. It’s the three legged stool of potential. One missing leg will throw off the balance.

None of this means a thing unless our gifts are activated by faith! Stepping out! These signs will follow them that believe, in my name they shall … Mk 16:15-17 Beloved desire spiritual gifts, but then I show you a more excellent way. Love, love, love. Heals all wounds, wins all battles, endures all things; it doesn’t give up, it is not puffed up … desires Christ to be perfected in others. Love will lay it all down, throw the crown to go find you. Shed the robe, take up the cross, to free, heal, and keep you! *John let go, died alone, so CHRIST could have what was John’s own … brethren. That was love.

The gifts are a promise, a token, and part. It’s not where you finish, it’s only the start. A portion of heaven come from above, the maiden voyage of Noah’s dove … of all these what remains is love, tested, and tried- of all these things endure and abide … in LOVE. Remember Joseph’s coat and colors, how he was despised of his own brothers? They put him into foreign hands, the prince a slave in heathen lands …They will call you names, the lord of flies, your coat of colors will be despised, but you will learn to shake that dirt, and take his name to the ends of the earth. For a heart in famine will listen close, they won’t deny the Holy Ghost … to feed them. For whom they rejected will have HIS day, His light will shine and won’t go away. And nations will come with open sack, and the ones that bow will have no lack. For Joseph the Prince they left to die, is the apple of His Father’s eye. No less are you no less am I, whom love Him. So let not bitter the bitter thing be, call upon heaven and deeply breath! Remember His sacrifice, remember the blood, remember love comes in like a flood, let it have you.

When John was not yet cast into prison. –

He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. *He must increase, but I must decrease.

Jesus taught us our resistance and dealings with the devil were seasonal. After he tempted Jesus in the wilderness, scripture tells us that Satan departed from him for a season. Lately, I’ve been reminded of that from our battles with Python. It’s another day, in another season, with another work; and almost right on cue the infiltrator comes again. But the victorious saints of God are not defeated, nor overcome!

imagePart II What Lies Beneath

In part one I show the reader photographs of a tree limb that had been overcome by an invasive vine that had twisted around the trunk of the tree and embedded itself deep into the tree branch. This is a prophetic illustration of the effects of the demon spirit Python. A powerful spirit that seeks to infiltrate Apostolic moves of God (sent to establish the new) to constrict their growth and divert their purpose. We see this spirit addressed in Acts 16:16.

Though divination was how Python manifested through the servant woman. The nature of Python restricts, constricts, and distorts; squeezing the life, and the breath of God, from its victims. It destroys the true composition, and form of what the new work of God is suppose to be. The original design that God created. The ravages of Python leaves behind it the debris field of what could have been. IN THE LIVES OF INDIVIDUALS, and all to often moves of God. We see the deceptive operation of the Python spirit in Acts 16:16 where the damsel who was possessed with a spirit of divination followed Paul’s team who was in the city to bring an apostolic work, in Philippi. Although, the female servant seemed to be there to encourage their endeavors, publicly proclaiming their intentions, even declaring God as THE MOST HIGH, yet, she was possessed of a spirit of divination, called Pythos in Greek. Scriptural proof that not all that glitters is Gold.

image in the world we live in today she would have made it into the board of directors, or appointed a deaconess, but Paul discerned the source of inspiration, and the plot of the enemy. PYTHON was there to restrict and distort, the move of God. To choke it out, replacing it with the power already in control in that city. When ever you feel a Christian gathering is being constricted, and the Holy Spirit quenched, or a service being diverted away from true worship, this is the work of Python, an evil spirit that joins with every demonic player of the power of the air to be a spiritual counterfeit, snaking its way into the sanctuary of God. This evil spirit may not even possess an individual, but could be oppressing them. The best way I have found to stop this spirit from quenching the work of the Holy Spirit is to do exactly what Paul did, stop what you’re doing, turn around and drive out that spirit in the name of Jesus, until it is gone. We need to cut off the head of operations, of Python. In this city the very thing that had it under control, sent out an agent of Satan to bring an Apostolic work into its control. I like to think that the damsel possessed of this spirit became a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, a sister in the Church of Phillipi.

Those under the control of an unclean spirit, will do one of two things, they will run towards the anointing that breaks the yoke, or away from it, depending on whether they want to be free or not. That is why those under control of unclean spirits habitually disappear out of a meeting when ever the anointing begins to fall, had they wanted deliverance the human spirit would have willed themselves into the presence of God. This is why we would see Christ approached by screaming devils, the human spirit, wanting freedom brought them into the presence of God willing to be set free. Had the demons had their way, they would have stayed away. The Lord showed me this in illustration when we attended a Church service where the presence of God fell mightily upon the people who were lost in worship. The Lord spoke to me to observe, the outer hub began to teem with nervous energy while the foyer began to fill with people. No crying demons just chatty, nervous, and distracted people. It is said we need to clean up our alters, this may be true, but we need to clean up our foyers, and parking lots, as well. To often the outer court influences inner court experiences. Even shutting them down. The outer court should have no influence whatsoever, on the moves of the Spirit. A climate not conducive for luke warm fish will not attract them. We don’t have to lift a finger to clean up the altar when we let the fire of God do it for us.

At Your Feasts, In your Presbytery

Notice in scripture the manifested demons actually bowed down and worshipped Jesus. The stronger, more powerful demons, who operate in those who are in authority, the perfectly possessed, you can say, are quite capable to withstand the anointing, and function around it, because they have influence to shift atmosphere that is compatible for them, they can do that with manipulative powers of agreement to quench the Holy Spirit, what they cannot stand is exposure. That is why, so often, the Jewish leaders opposed Christ, vehemently, when he exposed their wickedness. It is more disturbing when those under the control of Python go undetected, slipping into leadership, and the various administrations of God’s house, to put it under a death grip, doing what ever it can do to shut down the atmosphere of worship, that releases the power of God that will expose its darkness and drive it out. Pythos is an operative of Satan that seduces the un-discerning making them admirers aņd followers by divination, when it has control in the hierarchy of a church it would never support pure abandonment in worship, but begin to pull attention to itself, less the power of God is released. A genuine move of God almost always requires one to go somewhere different than they have ever gone before, in repentance, and committment. History reveals to us that the earmarks of an out pouring are extended, hilarious, and abandoned, worship. The kind that the Michaels of mockery jealously despise, of whom the Davids of dance defy, in the joy that the Holy presence of God is brooding over His people.

We have seen Pythos, find its way through various aspects of church functionality that seems to have a hand in changing the course of a meeting, or interrupt the atmosphere away from worship, away from the manifest presence of God, away from the word. Python goes after “breath” it operates best when given voice, what ever pythos can do to “chill” the atmosphere, taking “breath” or giving voice to redirect flows and currents, away from anointed word, and ministry; but more so, away from worship that brings in the manifest presence of God. One reason that would be is because anointed worship charges the atmosphere with power on a corporate level, taking the focus off of one man, and directing it to the Lord of Hosts, who, in turn, pours out His Spirit upon the body of Christ, corporately, who ultimately, is whom God has appointed to manifest the manifold wisdom of God. This kind of power released into the Church on a corporate level not only exposes principalities of darkness, but defeats them, and by the nature of true worship destroys the influence of LEVIATHAN (to twist) who is king of ALL the SONS of PRIDE. Does it not say with the High praises of God in our mouth and a two edged sword in our hands we will bind kings with fetters of iron?

Ephesians 3:8-11 … to me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ, and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things… His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to his eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.

When Weed Seeds Rise

image

Mark 4:24 Says take heed to what you hear. Make an effort towards understanding. What effort we make to know and walk in the Word of God, what measures we take- the same will be rewarded back.

Words are seeds. Words have power. When we allow the WORD of LIFE to have a prominent place in our hearts then weed seeds, the enemies lies, have no room to grow.

We are a product of what we believe.

Faith comes not but by HEARING, and HEARING by the WORD of God. Romans 10:17.

What is planted in the soil of our hearts, and nurtured will come to fruition. It will come to its harvest! Life or death! What is sown in your heart? Faith? Doubt? Confusion? Who is your teacher? The Holy Spirit? Youtube? Conservative television? Liberal media? When the big lie comes it will gather its own. The decision for truth begins now! And starts by plunging into the pure unadulterated word of God.

What is in our heart will bear witness to its Father.

Jesus told the Pharisees that their Father was the Father of lies. His sheep know His voice, a stranger they will not follow. But if the voices of this world is all that one is listening to, then how can they know the Lord’s voice?

Movements have already mounted themselves up on the power of their delivery. Ready to spring into action on what is believed as right. Posed to act as soon as the signal is given. The heart is secretly conditioned to respond, when the liar beckons to that harvest pre-sown, and nurtured by the spirit of the power of the air. Light and darkness will continue contrasting itself into the divide prophesied by Isaiah saying: Arise and shine for the glory of the Lord is risen, the glory of the Lord shines upon you. Deep darkness covers the earth, and gross darkness the people, but my light will shine upon you ..

Even among the household of the saints, are some among them, that will charge into action on what they allowed to pre-condition them, for many years. Heaping to themselves teachers tickling their ears. Inundated with information in this Information Age. If seeking to know the WORD of God, is not our daily bread, we will have little power to resist a global movement that is contrary to the doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Mathew 10 will be fulfilled. Jesus said, “You think that I have come to bring peace, but I have come to bring a sword.” Households will be divided against themselves. Because the WORD is a sword, come to cut the flesh from spirit. God’s WORD has brought divisions since Emmanuel (God with us) has come. Not that Jesus sent the sword of His word to separate people from Him. But, so that works of the flesh will be separated from them, by the circumcision of the heart. Removing the flesh from the Spirit, for the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Consequently, those who resist Him, will allow the enemy’s lies to divide them from the household of God, splitting families. So what we have filled our hearts with in the hour we live in, will come to light. In this, what dominates the heart will be exposed. Inordinate passions are carrying many away.

The bible says people will believe they are working for God, persecuting His people. But they are fighting against the King of Glory. Christians (by title only) are fighting against Him right now.

In fact, the worst are still the religious leaders of our day. Making dependents rather than disciples. Raising weak congregations under the control and power of sorcery. They say, “What? I have no sorcerers in my flock! Ask your congregation how many are medicated? More importantly how many are on behavior stabilizing medications, because outrageous behavior is out of their control? How many addicted to pain killers? This is a scourge ravaging the homes and streets of America. An epidemic of seismic proportion. If we can’t claim our sanctuaries, how are we going to claim the world for Jesus?

How many are under the power of satanic control?

Horrified, pastors may want to try to change this condition over night. But it didn’t happen over night. The sorcery laden culture of this nation, in many places, has its own habitation nested among Christian assemblies. Under a jurisdiction of a powerless gospel, because God’s people did not obey the Lord’s requirement first, before they went to do the work of the ministry: He said, “Go and wait; until YOU are endued with power from on high!” After that they were to make disciples of all nations.” Which simply means to create followers that hold to the discipline of the doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ. The good news! Good for setting people free of bondage! Leading them into the fullness of Christ, by casting out devils, speaking in unknown tongues, laying hands on the sick, and being immune to any deadly thing. Mark 16:15-17. Few reach fo that kind of power in their walk.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty!

Colossians 2:6-15 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. And you, being dead in your sins and the un circumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Too often the wind and fire of the Spirit of renewal is quenched by those who resist the Holy Spirit, often because they mistakenly believe they are the head of the church assigned to control the saints of God, they will not yield to the Spirit working in other people’s lives. If a word, gift, directive, or movement of God, doesn’t originate from them, then in their mind, it is invalid. Rather than adjusting to the move of the Spirit and accommodating HIM, in how He wants to work, and whom He uses, these who regard none other than themselves (and their own ambitions) resist HIM!

Jesus is the brain.

The body, and that includes the presbytery, (elders) is run by the brain. They are subject not only to obey the head, but operate as a part of the body. Not the whole of it, but to honor the functionality of it, as God designed. As all parts working as one. Jesus is the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and the government- resting upon HIS shoulders (the woven bands of muscle ligament and bone) which is the *presbyters working together, lifting the burden of the Lord, bringing alignment to the head. By and through, the mind of Christ leading. Teaching, with the shepherding graces of God. ‘The Body of Christ’ is called that for a reason.

I once heard a pastor announce behind the pulpit that he was the head of the church, and that what he says goes! When a pastor, bishop or elder, declares himself as the head of the church and postures himself over the people as their head, than that is a clear indication that a man is head over that church! If no one sees the problem with that, then they are in error. The pastor and the people have made themself an idol, and they are dutifully following him. Ironically, the word pastor is more associated with the position of a deacon, then it is a Bishop. In the Strong’s Concordance the etymology for the word deacon mentions the word pastor as a description type to certain duties of deacons. While the word pastor, is only mentioned once, and refered to as “with uncertain origins.” So it is disastrous to the development of the Body of Christ, when the only authority given charge has no clear definition to his job description. A pastor by definition is not to be an overseer. An overseer is a bishop. Elders are encouraged to “shepherd the flock” as stated in 1 Peter, but deacons are there to serve, attend, and assist. So a Pastor is a servant, that attends and assists. But, He is not an overseer. Bishops are “lead elders” apt to teach, and are appointed by an Apostolic anointing. Deacons are chosen by the presbytery. In a congregation of believers there are Bishops, Elders, Deacons, disciples, and followers of Christ. This makes up the pasture of HIS flock. Bishops, Elders, and Deacons, assist in the shepherding of the flock. Overseeing, counseling, and attending their needs. But, sheep are sheep, they have among them ewes, ewes with lambs, and even rams. They themselves expand their flock, naturally. Do you see the picture? Many have been getting this wrong in the institutionalized church.

Jesus is jealous for His own! He has declared, “I am coming for what is mine!” The Lord Jesus Christ is not pleased that HIS name has been used to funnel in millions of dollars for the care of brick and mortar, left empty most the time, at the expense of hooves, fleece, and hides.

If any of HIS are there, God will deal with it. He will shake them up and out of that mess, and mercifully take what is His. For I assure you, the lamp stand in such a place will not abide. The Lord seeks and saves those who are lost, He will kick around the empty shells of form and formality, to find His living breathing ones, and pull them out. Still, the cry of the Spirit is COME! Come out from among her my people, lest you suffer in her punishments! Let us answer, by leaving Babylon. Let us answer by making Christ the HEAD of the Church! For years the Exodus has been blamed on the Exodees. A mote has been built around the infallibility of theses blind guides for they have shut out, chased off, and persecuted anointings rising up among them. Their congregation, consequently, has an effeminate nature; leading personalities have been weeded out! Disciples never really graduate, and the youth are the most active in the congregation because they are inexperienced, they are younger and pose no threat.

Jesus Is The Head of The Church!

Jesus does the thinking! The presence of the power of God flows through every part of the body at once systematically, as it does in the physical body, when the brain sends a signal to it. The shoulders bear up the core and aligns the body with the head and the whole person mobilizes at the brain’s commands! But guess what? This happens when the body sends up signals through the senses of what the body is in need of. Better than the analogy of the body is this- God knows what we have need of before we even ask!

Isaiah 9:6-7 to us a child is born, to us a son is given: and the government shall be on his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, on the throne of David, and on his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from now on even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this

How activated and knowledgable each part is of its own function, reflects how effective the word of God is being preached, in any given church. Another description of this is called equipping the saints for the work of the ministry. Study Ephesians the 4th chapter. If they can’t function as one in our meetings how are they going to function in any other work? If there be only one functioning part, the body is incapacitated. Even a football team knows how to act as one body. An NFL member knows his conduct and team spirit is important on and off the field. He knows his position like the back of his hand! His coach and team mates honor him as a part of the whole that does what he does. That includes making decisions when he has to adjust when things don’t always go as planned. The coach and team mates trust him as a trained team player, doing his part!

The natural world is smarter, in their natural wisdom, than many houses of God that dare to say they are the church.

Where is the power?

Very few preachers, themselves, can even rebuke a little cold virus. Let alone keep their flock growing in victorious living. Knowing who they are in Christ, and the authority they have! Not neglecting the great salvation Christ wrought for us at the cross. Many are still being taught basic fundamentals of Christianity, forever drinking milk. But never being taught how to go beyond the washing of the blood (that all must have), for the remission of sins, and into the meat of our destiny, beyond the laying on of hands and baptisms and into the power of the resurrection life. Churches shouldn’t be closing down because of the flu season. They should be chasing that devil out of town, and any other epidemic, pandemic, or stronghold seeking to take over. We are the the representation of Christ in the earth! The works he did we shall do also, and greater works shall we do, because Jesus has gone to the Father and He has sent His Holy Spirit! The word of God says to pray for the city that you live in that you may LIVE there in and PROSPER! Jeremiah 29:7 Timothy 2:1-2.

The Lord of Harvest will gather His own unto himself. Based on what is growing from the field of our hearts- the deceiver may have already passed by that field and have recruited many to his work. Because their source has never been the WORD. Even though they know the bible front to back. Even though they quote it, another has come in while they have slumbered, and have sown weed seeds. While Christians stumble around in their walk with God, in their refusal to stay in His Word, and obey it- weed seeds are rising, choking out the word, and more alarming- blinding them from what is right before their eyes. We have no idea when the day will come when many will find themselves not prepared. Not prepared to believe God for miraculous provision, direction, and divine intervention. Not prepared to test the spirits, to know whether they are from God, because of what lies they have nourished. As wisdom is known by her children, so the fool his folly.

We have those Christians that are strong, out spoken, loyal, patriots that are in the same condition. Seeding their hearts full of controversy, following after American idols, and icons, they say, “Hey I’m all about God and country.” But God is the red white and blue to them, their meetings are more about politics and conservative radio, and conspiracy theories; worshiping Jesus is forgotten.

The same goes for those on the opposite side that has made the government their God.

Who takes care of them right now? Is God their provider? When their country blesses them, they are blessed, justifies them then they are justified, when the government makes them strong they are strong. Jesus said I’m the ROCK in a weary land, I’m the ROCK that will make you stand! Trust not in the Chariots of Egypt!

Lord told me one time that He could do no great works in a place, because the folks were all on disability checks, and didn’t want to lose their disability. I asked the Lord why then do these people ask for prayer and come for meetings? He said it was just their form. There is a form of Godliness they are accustomed to, meeting requirements that they believe is an insurance policy for them, fire insurance. For some they are bound by their infirmity and it has become their god, their provision. Some are gluttons for attention, indulgent, they want an ear to listen to them, but they in turn won’t listen; so full of that spirit they are used by satan to tie folks up in conversations, pre-occupied with self.

Snaring gullible sheep, taken captive by those who refuse to be set free, and trust in God. We need to be stronger than that by not shrinking back! Let them know they can be loosed from their captivity every time they open their mouth to glorify it! Jesus gave his body to be beaten with many stripes, for by His stripes we were healed! Let us not serve death, but let us serve Him, the Living Word! It’s that simple. This is how bad this culture of dependence has become for all people who will not believe. The enemy uses those that have no intention to serve God, some call themselves Christians, to tie up workers of ministry, wasting precious time, life, and resources. Living out foolish living, talking about mindless, worthless things.

The fire of the power and presence of almighty God is able to burn out the brambles and weeds of this satanic nesting found in every church controlled of men and not God. If only pastors would take their hands off the controls and let God. He loves us so much that when HE is in charge HE disciplines with fiery love! It is the only thing that gets rid of the overgrowth and brambles we have neglected in our lives.

Decades of forestry management has proven one thing. Putting out natural fires only reserves the dead and the dry for an unmanagable inferno later on.

Let the weeds burn, and the brambles blaze, Jesus said, ” I come to bring a fire and would that it already be kindled!” Well it is kindled and always burning somewhere. We need the full Gospel, we need the fire. Rather, we’ve just had faux burnings. They put a banner on the building saying Revival Meetings Tonight! So we know there is going to be some loud preaching and prayer that night. It will be a controlled ignition of a controlled flame. It will burn from 7:00 to 8:45 pm. Miraculously it will have burned out just in time to get the kids home to bed on a school night.

Soon a fire of judgment will burn. If we don’t get our hands off it, and really let God! There are materials that won’t burn. The fire just passes through, but where there is neglect, where there is a pile of wood, hay, and stubble, it is going to get hot! That fire is going to linger. What should burn will, its dry, it has no life in it. Jesus said,

“If they do these things now when the tree is green, what will it be when the green tree becomes dry?”

All this ends with fire for all of us. Let us yield to the baptism of fire! For that fire refines!

The baptism of fire, is a cleansing agent to refine. When Jesus does what He said He was going to do, no saint should be surprised. These unscheduled burns, these heaven ignited fires, precision lightning strikes, are not going to be predictable. In the west we call them wild fires. They can burn so hot, they become tornadic, creating their own winds. Why? Years of mis-managed controlled burns. And the dousing out of wild ones.

God help us in America and especially the bible belt. While the West has burned natural, devastating fires, the bible belt will have its own burning. Generations of faux movements and scheduled revivals are going to have rude awakenings, if they do not wake up, and meet the Lord of glory on His terms. Secret sins among those living double lives, so entrenched in the community, that children, and even children’s children have gown up thinking nothing about fornication on Friday and Saturday night, and the Church worship team, on Sunday. But your sins will find you out, the bible says.

The point is there is power available to us to overcome. Through Jesus Christ, and no matter what our condition is we can have joy and victory no matter what challenges we have in life. Love does not let people believe their lies. All we can do is speak the truth in love and rebuke that spirit off them.

After a while that thing starts to thin out, when the authority and power to walk and stand in victory is taught. When the power of our words are taught. Those devils start lifting off, or the people possessed by them just leave because what is being preached messes up their doctrine of defeat. Or their love for a luke warm gospel. Eventually, a power packed congregation, or fellowship, emerges. A power packed meeting will have signs. The doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ needs to make a come back! I remember, living among saints who would bombard heaven for all to be healed and delivered. Healings and deliverances happened in our meetings until there was hardly a thing to pray about. Bound up folks who couldn’t pray or worship God, were prayed through. We began to see many saved and come to the Lord.

The Sword of The Spirit, And Dividing Rod Of Separations.

For those seeking the Lord, there will be seasons of separations. The Lord, by His Spirit is working a work among His people and now is a time that these things shall move at a feverish speed. Time already feels like it is flying by. More and more “responses” to the word of God will seemingly upset the apple cart but just know the SWORD of the Spirit is working divine separations. Not necessarily for eternity but for promotion of growth and discipline. The Father desires all be saved. He can graft us back in, as easy as he can raise up stones in our place to become Abraham’s sons. But, we can’t play games any more, there will be consequences for the stubborn of heart. Woe to him who is often reproved, the bible says, he shall be suddenly cut off and that with out remedy!

Ya’ll think your all right but you are not.

People don’t understand how their countenance can betray the fact that an evil spirit has them in bondage. Perfectly, normal looking people, taking on catatonic facial expressions, while the power of God is moving through prayer ministry, or the word. I’ve seen female faces turn into male. I’ve seen facial twisting. and drooling, and not while in a deliverance session! That is from those just listening to the word. I’ve seen a 6′ 2″ tall sodomite bound by a spirit of witchcraft, controlling other inmates, beg prison guards to let him out of the chapel, because he couldn’t stand the power of God manifesting.

When we would do warfare against that spirit in the chapel, they would start lining up at the door. After the ones that wanted out left, the power of God would always fall, setting at liberty those controlled by them. Healings, salvations, deliverances. One time the Holy Spirit chased off half the members of a prison gang, starting trouble. The other half stayed and listened, two stepped up, and received Christ. Always take the full gospel into your meetings, let the body of Christ be the body. The head will always BE THERE! And where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty!

Many times people say they have their problems because God is teaching them something. The only answer to why one is sick, for example, in the bible, is for God to display His power to heal them. No other answer is given to that direct question. When people say it is because of sin, they need to remember that Jesus forgave sin, in order to display his power and “wills” to do both. Forgive and heal. Once healed though the Lord warns, “Go and sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you!” The outcome was always healing. Except when doubt and unbelief prevailed in a city. They responded to what they were seeded with. Jesus could do no great works in some places because of their doubt and unbelief. Their teachers in the synagogue taught them, seeded their hearts with so much traditionalism it made the WORD of God, who came in the flesh and dwelt among them have no effect. When Jesus comes again will he find faith in the earth?

It is up to us to be caretakers of the garden of our hearts. A yearning for all God has for us is the motivator.

People believe that they will respond to the Lord of Glory, when He comes. They believe that they will gather with Jesus when He comes. When He came the first time a whole nation of people looking for their Messiah missed Him. Only a handful of saints compared to the world population even saw Him, come and go. What is seeded in our hearts, what we have been conditioned to believe, will either have us ready, or so weeded up in our hearts, and minds, it will all be over before we have time to scramble our lamps and oil together. Don’t think so?

Look at the parable of the ten virgins. Five foolish, and five wise. Five left in a panic, because they were not ready. Suddenly seeing what they lacked, but there was no time to do anything about it. They didn’t have enough to see themselves through the night. They knew enough though, that He came and went. Great regret will take hold of many who will lose what they could have had! For they were numbered with those of the wedding party. Pray that the weeds planted in your heart hidden and known will have an encounter with the fire of the Holy Spirit. Let it burn up every false and lying thing. You might lose a faux position in your faux little world, but what is ashes to the wind? Let God perfect you!

A few weeks ago the Lord showed me that ponies were meant to be horses. That they are a landrace. which is a species of a plant or animal altered from its original form as a product of their environment. God is pulling horses out of the ponies. They will be arrayed for battle. A pony can’t make the cut. They are for children and petting Zoos. Time is running out! Now is time to press in, for any day now a chain of circumstances can find us in the balance, found wanting!

Hebrews 5:12-13

... Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing you are dull of hearing. For when for the time you ought to be teachers, you have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that uses milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Return To Me Still

Return To Me Still – by deana barnes

For sunsets and the waters
That reflect them by the sea
For boys and girls and laughter
And thoughts their lives will be-

Splashing in the water now,
Little silhouettes in the sun.

The day grows dark so quickly now
Their Childhood is spun.

For youth is just a moment
Like the mist in morning rain-
And now we have to say good bye
Our brave heart on the plane.

For some they choose to rise and soar
In Freedom they abide …
What blood line came this soldier?
The jewel that lights my eye.

Where came this noble character?

To answer such a call
In days of never ending war,
This one who is our all?

Rather, with the free birds soar!
How much, spreading wings should fly!
Will thoughtful smiles return to me?
Or, Was brave heart born to die?

Are there numbers in the numbered,
to pay Freedom’s debt for peace?
Has the toll been prearranged,
from whom it is received?

Did they say yes, and choose somehow,
to not live so very long?
To die young in the battle fields,
postponing the victor’s song?

Was this a brave heart’s journey
to achieve freedom for the rest?
To pay the price to give their all,
giving only but their best?

And in that knowing, no one knows,
just why it has to be,
That freedom exacts a heavy toll

And never given free.

Are they chosen from our arms,
so quickly to be torn?
Christ himself, disclosed the cross,
“T’was for this that I was born …”

A question dare not spoken
A thought weathered to defy,
For the bounty of freedom’s garden,
was brave heart born to die?

Of Many Wars, Defeats, And Failures. Still God is. Ezekiel 17:22-24

Says the Lord GOD, “I will also take a young twig, from the top of a cedar tree and set it apart; I will pluck a tender one and carry it up, and plant it on a high towering mountain. “On the high mountain of Israel I will plant it, that it may spring forth with bough and branch and bear fruit and become a stately cedar. Where birds of every kind will nest under it; they will nest safely in the shade of its branches. “All the trees of such a field will KNOW that I am the LORD; I bring down the proud, exalt the low, and dry up the green tree, while making that one [thought to be lost] flourish. I am the LORD; I have spoken, and I will perform it.”

Crown Jewels

 

The lord gave me a picture.

I saw a lovely Christian woman with beautiful earings on. The earings were diamond and ruby. She was very elegant. She was sitting with imageher head slightly down, and I could see (on her other ear) all the jewels had been removed. She took them off to talk on the phone. I thought to my self they were her Crown Jewels. I looked down at her hand and saw an old land line phone. I saw how she took her “Crown Jewels” off to have a conversation. I remembered back in the day ladies would take their earings off to talk on the phone.  I said, “Lord, What are you showing me here?”

Crown Jewels belong to the House of the Royals. They come out of the palace vaults to be worn by Kings and Queens for special occasions. As Christians we are of a Royal Priesthood.

1 Peter 2:9 King James Version (KJV)

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his everlasting light.

This Lady, this beautiful woman, represents all of us in Christ! His Bride.

The special event where we wear our Crown Jewels, is our salvation that we celebrate every day of our lives.

Hebrews 2 :1-3

Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have HEARD, lest at any time we should let them slip. For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward; How shall we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was CONFIRMED unto us by them that HEARD him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and GIFTS [treasures] of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will ..

She removed her Crown Jewels to have a conversation through an old land line phone.

Now days, we talk through the airways. In this vision airways would represent a spiritually uplifted conversation. But this was an earth bound line of communication. It was earthy. We always need to remember where we come from, and who we are, in Christ. Ladies and Gentlemen of the Kingdom, can you remember the last conversation you had, where you actually stepped down from your blessed position in Christ Jesus, just to meet eye to eye?

I think we all can! The Lord doesn’t want us to shed off what He paid such a high price for, that HE now has adorned us with. The (robe of righteousness, and mantle of our call) over lines of communication that would be cut off by the other end, if we let ourselves be genuinely His, in the sight of all men.

Sadly, many tolerate conditions imposed upon them by unbelievers, and Christians in unbelief.

Desiring that we edit our conversation to leave out what makes them feel uncomfortable. Do you have a relationship like that?

Whether the land line represents worldly conversations, or Christian communication that rejects the treasure we possess knowing Him; or is filled with gossip and tale bearing- we need to DISCONNECT that line!

Should we veil the sparkle of our Lord’s eye? Should we cap the flame of HIS Spirit to enjoy what we think is Christian fellowship? Should we hide the lamp of our salvation under a table?

Hunger for God appreciates every drop of joy that emanates from HIS people! Every ounce of love come from the Father, in all its forms; fruits and gifts of the Spirit, mantles and mandates of the KING! Let your light so shine among men! Fellowship is like a flowing river, it inspires; it spurs one another on to GOOD works. It should not be competitive, but rejoices in the truth, and seeing Jesus aglow in others.

Relationships that push against that, are earthbound religious connections that have no need, or desire, for more of Jesus. Their commonality may be Christianity but it may not be the LORDSHIP of Jesus Christ in their life. They may enjoy talking about CHURCH but initiating a Spirit filled, or Spirit led conversation, becomes awkward or one sided. The believer often feels like they just cannot connect with this person that is suppose to be a Christian. They will often find themselves compromising to keep the peace or keep the connection. The earth bound conversation the Bride of Christ was having over the phone- required HER to bow to a lesser authority than the one whom has redeemed her. Any relationship that pulls us into a soulish line of communication is exactly that, soulish.

We need to disconnect from lines of communication that are not Holy Spirit inspired; and rather, upgrade to a connection that benifits the thirsty and hungry soul that needs what we have, or shares in it. Kindred relationships that, simply, love us at our best! As we should them. Desperate souls soak in God’s love! Fellowship with the poor in spirit, is spending time with some one that never has enough of Jesus! Mathew 5:3 says, “For theirs is the kingdom of God.” They shall obtain it in their hunger, and humility.

Another type of relationship that turns into an earth bound connection is one that has a political nature to it. I’ve said this before and it is absolutely true. Any one effected  by the power of peer pressure, is under political control. Entertaining that land line is a land mine of compromise, that always leads to hypocrisy. False humility, and shallow relationships, because the Saint of God was forced to take off their Crown Jewels in order to even CONNECT. It’s a pay to play kind of deal, that secures power over unified assembles in their fellowship and worship, supporting those that comply to its control, and pulls down those that don’t; neutralizing, if not paralyzing  Spirit filled praise and worship that brings down the glory of God, in our meetings. Often times resistance against the moves of God are not from with out, but from with in.

Peer pressure rarely swings anyone into a positive zone. This is why we know it is usually demonic oppression behind it.

The woman I saw was holding the phone in her hand, by the twisting cord, as it dangled to her side. We need to hang up on bad company and disconnect with that old religious python, that hates the Crown Jewels of the people of God. Relentlessly, dissecting, and debating, the word of truth with, “Has God said?” Let your light shine and reconnect with the salt and light of the earth. Avoiding vain babblings.

Another thing we may be in the habit of doing, is taking a step down from our position in Christ, to give ear to counselors, that have less counsel than we do! Don’t tolerate cords that keep you bound to a line of communication that is spiritually bankrupt! That wastes your time and life. Never cover your lamp with the prideful lying shades of false humility. It is a temptation come from an accusation of Satan, designed to side line the Saints of God, every time they try to step out in obedience to their gift and call! That old Pharasutical remark, even Jesus had to endure, is implied by that prince and power of the air, saying “Who do you think YOU are, we know where you come from?” Familiar with the short comings of the saints but never familiar with their gift and anointing. Aware of their humanity but resistant to the Spirit of Christ in them.

Therefore do not be partakers with them

Ephesians 5:6-13 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God on the children of disobedience. Be not you therefore partakers with them. For you were sometimes in darkness, but now are you light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatever does make manifest is light.

Don’t take your Crown Jewels off to satisfy a religious spirit, who has rejected the wonderful details of their own great salvation. We were born to bring GOD glory. Wear the garments of HIS praise, be of HIS Royal Priesthood, peculiar. The event is your Salvation. The Crown Jewels are the gifts of His promise, and graces HE has adorned YOU with! The light reflected from what HE has given you, is HIS light. It will draw to Him them that love the LIGHT.

 

The Fire Kindled

Isaiah 4:-3-6

And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remains in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem: When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the middle thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning. And the LORD will create on every dwelling place of mount Zion, and on her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night …


And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the day time from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and from rain.

He that endures to the end, shall be saved.

According to the encyclopedia most modern ponies were once horses that developed a small stature because they lived on the margins of livable horse habitat. A pony will always be a pony but originally it was a horse. Now bred to be different breeds. A pony is a dwarfed horse because it lived in an environment that could not sustain it. So it adapted. A horse in dreams often represent power. In this dream I’m about to share, remember, it ends well for them who endure to the end. Who yields to their maker, that He can draw out from them, the power of their potential, in Christ.

There are religious strongholds in the land that dwarf the development of God’s people by quenching and resisting the Holy Spirit. Having a form of Godliness but denying the power there of. Clouds, the bible says, without rain. This condition creates a religious environment, that cannot sustain Christian growth and true maturity. Rather, it is producing the faint of heart, and unprepared disciples, that will have difficulty withstanding days of difficulty. Simply because their full potential has never had the opportunity to develop past getting saved, and on to abundant life training. Where our circumstances don’t dictate to us how we live our life in Christ, but our life in Christ demands circumstances to bow and serve Him. All should be filled and endued with power from on high. Acts 2, all should know their authority as believers. Quenching the Spirit in our meetings creates dependence, not disciples. Few anointings have the opportunity to rise up, and be trained in Spirit led training. God calls them out. Generations of a powerless gospel have produced a sub species of Christian that cannot break from its mind set, but for God! If a pastor wants to know the health of his congregation, and their strength and trust in God, all he has to do is count those medicated on pills, struggling with sin, and addictions;  those living on government assistance, and the in firmed. If a congregation is sitting under the restraints of an institutionalize Christianity, there will be many in that state of living.  I’m not trying to be harsh or judgmental here, but we have to look at the truth in regard to the condition of the Church. Who and what she is dependent on. Christ Church should not be medicated, broke, and dieing.

Jeremiah 12:5 “If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, In which you trusted, they wearied you, Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?

Only God can stretch a horse out of a pony. But they will have to leave the pony farm, to become their full potential. Ponies are desired for Children. They are not desired for battle. If we as pastors are raising up those that will endure to the end, that is commendable. Let us go further, and seek to train them to run with endurance, to the end; this great race set before us. 

Zechariah 10:3 (AMP) My anger is kindled against the shepherds [who are not true shepherds], And I shall punish the male goats (leaders); For the LORD of hosts has visited His flock, the house of Judah, And will make them like His majestic horse in battle.

I had a prophetic dream after a believer’s meeting in our home town. I feel that in it is a word for believers who live in areas of the Bible Belt. My phone rang sitting on the night table, (like it wasn’t a dream) and I picked it up and there was a loud beast of a voice on the other end screeching at me. I knew it was a rulership of darkness over the area, and we must have rattled its cage the night before. I knew this had something to do with our intercession for the city. I couldn’t make out any words, the call came from main street downtown. While the voice continued screeching, I knew I needed to keep talking, and speaking the word, and I could tell the teachers anointing was in it. The voice on the phone seemed to be the embodiment, of all the push back felt in this area since the Lord’s assignment 8 years ago. After quite a while the voice tamed down and became more and more human sounding, and I began to make out the words it was saying.

The short of it was that a demonic controller named RIFT, come out from the root of rebellion, was raging against our intercession, and ministry of the spoken word, over the phone! A prince and power of the air! The voice was very animated, and boastful. Very opinionated, and letter of the law, while acting as an illegal operative, against God’s people. Wise in its own eyes, while an ignorant form of bible knowledge poured out of RIFT’s mouth, and it was divisive. Rift’s human agents resist the Holy Spirit, spread legalism, and seed discord.

1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness as idolatry.

All I could think of was that the end game for those bound by this darkness was under developed christians, dwarfed in their potential by being made deaf, dumb, and blind. A spirit of rebellion that found a place to become a stronghold in a deeply divided land. A land with a church on every corner. Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, or divination.

The night before we were praying, and repenting, and repenting for God’s people, even mentioning ancient divisions so intense that blood was spilled on the ground. Where there is division and strife there is every evil work. If strongholds of God are not lifting oppression off the land and establishing Christ, the Living Word, then darkness remembers its abode. The church cannot retreat with out devils seeking back their haunts. Seven times with seven more. If divisions plagued the land before, they will again, until that power is broken. Spirits move in because ground is lost, not taken. Jesus said OCCUPY until I come. Not regress. When evil spirits trespass it is time to remind the enemy of our inheritance, that we have one, and walk in it.

As I was on the phone I walked the five miles to town towards where the phone caller was calling from, decreeing the WORD the whole time. Until I came to a fuel station, and stood near a gas pump, and saw a gas tank-truck start to tip over. Right at a CONVENIENT store, where they sold fuel. Think about it. This voice of rebellion was still running its mouth. I cried out, run!

The fuel station exploded. It was like I went down to see a fire ignite right there where that Satanic stronghold called me from. It was there I snatched from the flames two living beings. Fire poured out to the ground like a river. I saved what I could so that it wouldn’t be destroyed by the fire, and escaped into a steel walled building. It had steel, riveted doors, and concrete. It was a fire proof shelter, and I headed up to the second floor. I saw a huge garbage disposal. It “contained” the fire as flames rolled in from outside. Burning trash only, and the place was like a furnace. The consuming fire from the fuel station, was transformed into a refining fire, as the fire proof structure brought controls to the inferno, burning trash only.

Jesus-Luke 12:49 Amp

I have come to cast fire on the earth; and how I wish that it were already kindled!”

There were others there nearer to the furnace withstanding the flames. Even closer than I. They were operating equipment that kept the fire contained, burning trash only. They were intercessors, and Angels. I felt bad for the two animals I saved from the fire. A pony and bunny, because in some ways I brought them closer to the heat. Even though they were saved from the fire. The pony was very uncomfortable. The fire wasn’t effecting me, but the bunny passed out. The two are a picture of how important it is to make ourselves ready, so we can endure to the end. So we won’t be the faint of heart, but rather actively involved as end times intercessors. What good are we if we pass out having little courage, or like the pony, trying so hard to bear the heat, but barely able to even move? The intercessors, interceding in the furnace room, narrowed the burning down to refuse only.

We have only a short time left to contend for ground, that it become a habitat for growth. That God can pull the horse out of the pony, no longer stunted by a powerless religion.

Jeremiah 6:27-30

“I [the Lord] have set you as an assayer [O Jeremiah] and as a tester [of the ore] of My people, That you may know and analyze their acts.” They are all the worst [kind] of [stiff-necked, godless] rebels, Going around spreading slander. They are [not gold and silver ore, but] bronze and iron; They are all corrupt.

The bellows blow fiercely,
The lead is consumed by the fire;
In vain they continue refining,

But the wicked are not separated and removed. They call them rejected silver [only dross, without value], Because the Lord has rejected them. ( They are burning dross only).

Because the seed fell on rocky, weedy, shallow ground.

Mathew 13

The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?” Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’

We have to break out of what confines us, always seeking for more of God. Being so hungry and thirsty for the bread and water of life, that we break through the four walls of false religion. Pressing in to the upward call of God. Not allowing ourselves to become acclimated to a culture or environment that quenches the Holy Spirit ever again. This would restrict anyone’s spiritual growth. John, who water baptized, said Jesus will baptize you with the Holy Ghost and fire. Continue to:

Seek and you shall find, Knock and the DOOR shall be opened to you. Ask and you shall receive. – Mathew 7:7

Derek Prince And Deliverance

Derek Prince, in this video, is preaching on playing church, and religious spirits, and a lying spirit manifests in the meeting. People! This was real then and it is even more real today, as we move towards the end of the age. I can absolutely testify that religious spirits manifest when light exposes their masquerade. Revealing the enemies lies. People wonder why they can sit just fine in their church, Sunday after Sunday, year after year; but then go to a Spirit filled meeting and end up foaming at the mouth on the floor, or running out the door! It is because religiosity doesn’t change us, nor does it grow us. It keeps us looking good, and will even promote us. While a masked charade continues its work in our lives. Until the Living Word is released in His power. No matter how Full Gospel a church can claim to be, if that church quenches the Spirit of God, then there will be bondage, that bondage keeps us as slaves. For where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty! We can talk power, preach power, and walk like we got power, but yielding to the Holy Spirit is the only thing that brings in the power!

Prophecy For 2018 And Year End Review

 
State Of Exposure prophecy of 2017.

All most one year ago, posted here on my WordPress blog, was a prophetic word for 2017. The original post is linked below. I would say it certainly has come to pass. State of Exposure is now (in- retrospect) probably the best way to describe what our country has been going through for the last year. I would venture to say with more to come! Exposures and disclosures. The “me too” movement as of late, sweeping across the nation, contributing to a good measure of what was described as

 A spirit of trembling of what would be exposed through the night, while the nations sleeps. Jan. 4, 2017

While the nation is still reeling with the kind of disclosures and exposures that have ended many lifelong careers, and probably a few relationships, so we are just scratching the surface with deeper revelations to come.

Nevertheless, Americans have been more concerned about their misconduct being called out in the workplace, than they are of the menace of North Korea. And the treasonist acts of public officials in our government. Still the word “a spirit of trembling” comes to mind as long as Kim Jong-un, terrorists, and Deep State exists, and by no means not for just Americans. Another word mentioned that was not what you would expect but still makes a profound statement, and that was the fainting Judge prophecy, that you will see in State of Exposure in regard to conviction. Now, at the time I had no idea who that would be, and I have no desire to be a prophet for show business events, but this “happening” is a word in itself, calling a nation out of its idolatry! After googling “fainting judge” it turns out the producer and Judge of the talent show “American Idol” had a life altering event take place after “fainting” in October of this year, prompting the famous judge of “American Idol” to quote: “Change his life style for the sake of his son.”

Is conviction going to prompt us to turn from an American life of raising idols, and rather change our lifestyles to raising our sons? I don’t think I need to go into great detail on how prophetic this Fainting Judge word is. Just read the prophecy. And remember the Spirit of Elijah is doing an end-time work.

The Spirit of Elijah is sent out in the latter days to turn the fathers heart towards their sons .. Mal 4:4-6

So anyway 2018 will be known as the year of aftermath, and consequence, and the notion of cause and effect. A reaping of what has been sowed in the way of sowing to the wind. The life altering events that have taken hold of many in this nation, for reasons beyond exposure but in relation to storms that exposure seems to whip up- just as real storms exist, we have aftermath to contend with in either circumstance. Real or man made. Deserved or undeserved. As 2017 was called the Year of Exposure, so 2018 is going to be known as a year of consequence. While more storms are coming, with their own post traumatic stress to navigate through. Those who trust God unwaveringly, will emerge upon a track of renewal.

This cause and effect is cycling through and manifesting into returns and renewals. For those who have their priorities right and are not the faint of heart.

Remembering in all thing that Jesus is our solid ground. There is no other rock to stand on.

Ahab Jezebel Modus Operandi

The Ahab Jezebel modus operandi is a corporate malfeasance, that empowers works of the flesh with satanic influence under the guise of noble causes.

James 3:13-18

But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil work.
It is an operative that has reproduced itself countless times over, since King Ahab and Jezebel’s reign, recorded in the Bible, animated it in the earth. They together, as one flesh, committed crimes against their people and God; giving time, life, and resources, to their worthless idols. The Satanic power behind the scenes of this modus operandi have resisted the test of the ages, and the fade of time. It has manifested itself in political offices and church sanctuaries; to fulfill one purpose, and that is to secure resources for its demonic rule, to continue Satan’s rebellion against almighty God.

Webster’s on line: definition of modus operandi : the usual way of doing something; especially: the usual way that a particular criminal performs a crime.

Ezekiel 16:25
You have built your bell towers at the head of every street, you have made your beauty an abomination, and have opened your feet to everyone who passed by, and multiplied your prostitution.

1 Kings 21:25 There was no one like Ahab who SOLD HIMSELF to do wickedness in the sight of the Lord, more so, Jezebel stirred him up.

Ahab Jezebel Modus Operandi

Of all the books, sermons, video tapes, and cd’s ever made about the Ahab Jezebel operative, very few have made an accurate and scriptural identification of the players behind what they call “a Jezebel spirit” in our world today. While spiritual wickednesses in high places have perfected themselves in their rules of engagement, many of those engagements are similar to what we see in the old testament, that can be used as a play book in identifying works of the enemy, against God’s people and their inheritance in Christ. In Jehovah’s kingdom the greater serves the lesser. In Ahab’s Kingdom the resources, and talents of the saints are there to serve the idol of selfish ambition. They are religious works that employ the resources of the Body of Christ, falling short of what should be the righteous acts of the saints.

What’s taught in regard to the Ahab Jezebel dynamic is that these two individuals are spirits. They are not. They are a demonized mode of operation, net working under satanic strongholds, to plunder the treasures of God’s Kingdom, tapping resources of the saints. As was done with Naboth’s vineyard.

The spirits involved are lying, seducing, perverse, spirits that have found a foothold in a work of the flesh called selfish ambition. Many pastors, heads of ministry, and other types of church authority, have engaged the saints in sins of idolatry, serving a man’s vision above God’s mandate. The greatest sign in identifying a church under the control of the Ahab Jezebel modus operandi is an absence of the prophet’s mantle of Elijah, among them. Which is a fore runner anointing clearing paths for Christ’s greater works that benefit generations to come.

This is contrary to Ahab’s works who lined his household up (and himself) for destruction. Prophetic ministry that doesn’t serve the Ahab Jezebel agenda is issued a death certificate of neglect at best, and is driven out of the assembly altogether at worst, by an active demonic network which is the Jezebel component in the Ahabic regime. Distinct and methodical teaching to dissuade the office of the prophet’s influence is dispatched, while rewarding “yes men” is actively engaged. The Ahabic regime has a name for God’s true prophet. That name is “Troubler”.

1 Kings 18:17-18

When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, “Is it you, you troubler of Israel?” And he answered, “I have not troubled Israel, but you have, and your father’s house, because you have abandoned the commandments of the Lord …

A tell tell sermon on prophets, come out of this dynamic, is always slanted to the negative. Never would that demonic hierarchy give them honor, or teach the people how to receive the office. Of course why would a rebellious leadership want the people to know how to receive a prophet? In their world it is kept hidden in the obscurity of ignorance, because of its corrective value, and reward to those who receive a prophet’s ministry. Mathew 10:41. A prophet’s ministry proceeds advancement in the Kingdom of God.

It is a wicked work that undermines the impact of the office of the prophet, set in the Church by God, and their ministry to the Body of Christ. Those houses void of their prophets may have dishonored them, and could very well have the dynamo duo working in their midst; seeing to it that only their compliant appointees exist. In fact, any anointing determined to obey God rather than man will be marked as a troubler under the jurisdiction of an Ahabic ambition.

Ephesians 4:11-13

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ ..

The Elijah anointing turns the hearts of the fathers towards the children and the hearts of the children towards their fathers. In this end times work before us- the mantle of the prophets make clear the paths of the Lord. As John came in the Spirit of Elijah, so once again is this mantle in the earth upon the Church, spoken of in Malachi. Preparing the way for Messiah’s second coming! Ahab had 70 sons that met a violent end; Ahab’s regard for his sons and daughters, did not secure their future, for his heart was not toward them. An Ahab Jezebel modus operandi works against the end times ministry of Elijah. Jezebel’s demonized sanctuary will not tolerate the Elijah mandate in their midst today. In Revelation Jesus warned another Jezebel type that He would kill her children with death. Is this not the curse written in Malachi? Let’s look.

Malachi Chapter 4:1-5

For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

Rev. 2: 23 [Jezebel] And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searches the reins and hearts: and I will give to every one of you according to your works.

Ahab and Jezebel’s story is about two people who had a platform of power that they misused, while they gave free reign to their own sinful lust. Ahab’s sin was disobedience while sitting as King in a God ordained appointment. The same idolatry, and lust for power, he exhibited emerges from the hearts of men and women, who have given themselves over to their appetites, just like Ahab did. Sadly, the Church today is inundated with those who seek fame, fortune, and power. Deceiving and being deceived; believing there religious acts are righteous works. Yet, have nothing to show for the equipping of the saints.

Their congregants are subjects of an Ahab Jezebel net work, not an equipped army capable of going to war, at any given moment. They have been rendered weak, sickly, timid, and dependent; forfeiting their own inheritance for the sake of another man’s selfish ambition. Often, the saints under such a leadership find themselves submitting to undue controls, and unrecognized sacrifices.

Jezebel was named after, and born to serve Baal. Her father was a Baal worshiper. She was empowered by a spiritual hierarchy that stirred up Ahab to sin greatly against His God, while Ahab was leading in Jehovah’s Kingdom. Ahab sealed his fate by marrying Jezebel. Ahab was not a man after God’s own heart. He was a man after his own pursuits, empowered by the anointing (come from God) that put him there.

The scripture clearly points out to us that an anointing is not the mark of obedience.

Case in point King Saul, King Ahab, as well as King David, in certain events of his life. Anointed leadership can come into an agreement with a satanic alliance, as Ahab did with the enemies of God on earth, that enabled a principality in high places, and its rulerships of darkness, to be a strong hold in the land for Baal worship. This activated Jezebel to persecute Elijah And kill prophets. Jezebel and Ahab became one in works of the flesh. Both of them were deceived, by choice, and under the control of a satanic delusion, seduced by demonic powers, and spirits of perversity; committing whoredoms against God, in the Kingdom of the inheritance of the saints.

It is impossible to have a Jezebel operative in the church with out an Ahab in charge giving it place, or tolerating it. Often the two dynamics can operate in one man or woman who hold the reins in leadership. Remember, as husband and wife Ahab and Jezebel were one in flesh. This working is a work of the flesh so it is perfectly scriptural, that a man or woman leading, can have both operatives operating. The Ahab that wants, and the Jezebel that will wickedly manipulate in order to provide. Don’t imagine I am identifying husband and wives in ministry gone a stray, as an Ahab Jezebel team. But that could be a scenario. A husband or wife may or may not be complicit, as stated before the dynamic duo operative can work through one person, office, church or a denomination, for that matter, an entire political party. Like the nation of Israel itself was under the rule of Ahab and Jezebel.

This satanic hierarchy working the Ahab Jezebel modus operandi, has no legal authorization to act with out given power to do so! This power is secured when God’s appointed man or woman succumb to temptations, leading them to sin against God in disobedience, allowing positions of authority, and their lust for power, to corrupt them. Rather than serving God they start to use resources belonging to HIM for their own selfish pursuits, as religious as they seem. The body of Christ under their influence begins to suffer a subtle diversion of purpose believing their personal sacrifices and offerings are serving God! Rather, they are serving a regime influenced by evil spirits (Jezebelic network). The Ahab Jezebel dynamic is an operative under the category of whoredoms against God. These are works of the flesh as described in Galatians 5:19 and covers everything from selfish ambitions to idolatry, witchcraft, and adultery.

Simply, their position, and appointment, that has a platform and power; becomes their altar, and instruments, to practice idolatry.

Under the power of a spiritual wickedness in high places- lying spirits, perverse and seducing spirits, find a foot hold in established controls, and governments in the earth. This includes Christian organizations, and churches, in order to funnel resources out of the hands of good people, into the service and sacrifice of idols. For the church of America that would translate to serving the god of self. In her political arena it has been the same.

One might think that such a work would be extraordinarily evident. Rather, it is profoundly ordinary and common among many of our Churches today.

The Old Testament gives us a prophetic parallel to how this work of darkness enters into our lives and sanctuaries. The Story of Ahab and Jezebel reveals to us how disobedience and a self involved leadership, becomes a floodgate for a demonic hierarchy, to enter into a position ordained by God.

Too many have attempted to teach about the inner workings of this dynamic duo, while under their spell, getting it all wrong; leaving the true portion of accountability, out of the hands of leadership, and into a chaotic, fear mongering witch hunt, going every direction imaginable, away from the true source of responsibility. With out an Ahab there would be no Jezebel.

Ahab served the god of self and Jezebel helped him do it, zealously. Deeper than that they emboldened wickedness to reside over Israel in their whoredoms against God, using resources of their own subjects.

One might imagine that such an operation would be an out-of-reach, off-the-beaten-path religious group, under the control of a moody dark character. This is not true, the flesh woman Jezebel was gifted in the art of cosmetics and sorcery, to seduce. 2 Kings 9. How much more charismatic would the darkness that empowered her pretend to be, that is still in operation today, having centuries to perfect itself in manipulating human nature?

Churches under the control of this mode of operation, are often main stream, or influential in their community, for that very reason. The art of make up. Jesus had a very strong word of warning for those who tolerated Jezebel.

Ending Ahab’s Reign Begins With Repentance

Remember, one must have the beam of blindness removed from their eye before they can see to remove specks out of the eyes of others! To many good people have been left bloodied with facial scars (harming good reputations) because a slave of the Ahab Jezebel modus operandi, was attempting to correct in others, what needed corrected in themselves.

Territorial

The evidence that the Ahabic Jezebel operation resides over any given territory, is that the office of the prophets of God is operating in seclusion in the area. The cave prophets! The 7 thousand that have not bowed their knee to Baal happens just before the double portion anointing is released in the area, where Ahab is dethroned, and Jezebel is cast down. So be encouraged, God won this battle, many times before, and He will win it all over again. There is no new thing under the sun!

We just need to know what in the world is going on, so we can resist the devil, and recognize that Jezebel’s spiritual play ground is in the realm of an Ahabic sanctuary.

It begins with leadership.

This spiritual wickedness, seducing a disobedient, jealous, competitive, and covetous people does not care if it is seated at the head of the table. As long as it is bedded down with the one who will give it free reign to keep out the holy prophets of God. They just need to be in the same boat of like mindedness. For they both love self, as Ahab and Jezebel did. Ahab (in this prophetic parallel) represents a natural God given position sold out to the service and worship of an idol called selfish ambition, aided and abetted by a satanic hierarchy that will stir him up to create even more abominations, in the pursuit of his “me” agenda. This is accomplished through Jezebel. A network of demonic players contributing to a wicked work committing whoredoms against God, in high places. Using the power of manipulation, and control.

While Ahab is a flesh and bone operative over one or many, the Jezebel counter part doesn’t have to be. For this work is the satanic side of this duo blinded by thier own deception, the spiritual side, the shadow government, if you will. Seducing, manipulating, and stirring up Ahab who did great wickedness against God, as described.

Ahab hated correction by prophets that told him the truth, and though he feared God in that regard, Ahab would not take authority among the people he was assigned to lead, to protect and accommodate the prophets of God. Rather, Ahab handed them over to Jezebel, raising up her own councilmen and prophets. While this demonic work murdered and persecuted true prophets in the land. In our churches today you can say the presbytery of an Ahab Jezebel operative are those who tolerate Jezebel, and allow her prophecies and teachings to secure an agenda that is in disobedience to God. For it is not for His glory they serve, but for the glory of their god; self. Though the workings of the Jezebel counter part of an Ahabic leadership is invisible and demonic, that network of various spirits dominate the compliant and oppress the non compliant. Male or female.

This is why many meeting places of the saints become known as the house of revolving doors.

This wickedness punishes men and women under the authority of an Ahab, that refuse to yield their spiritual inheritances, or giftings, to his vision or cause; and activates the satanic network of a Jezebel operative into action, oppressing those who have gifts and anointings. This type of activity is portrayed in 1 Kings 22:4 when Ahab wanted Naboth’s vineyard to turn it into a vegetable garden. Meaning years of husbandry was ignored that made Naboth’s vineyard a productive producer of new wine, for Ahab to have a vegetable garden. This is a picture of the misuse and abuse of gifts and callings of God, where good men and women with great spiritual wealth, and worth, suffer spiritual violence over their inheritance in Christ, where a flood gate of interest and recruitment is formulated towards a gifted or resourceful saint, in order to procure their talent, time, and resource.

Gal 4:16 Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth? Those people are zealous to win you over, but for no good. What they want is to alienate you from us, so that you may have zeal for them …

Because these gifted saints of God are in close proximity to the duo’s dynamic, their field of ministry is desired, as was Naboth’s, for works born of the flesh, but not after the Spirit. In order to incorporate it into a plan drawn up of a flesh conjured vision. It was the coverage close to where Ahab resided that made Naboth a target. The name Naboth means sprout to fruit, productivity, fruitful. Other commentaries say to sprout forth an utterance, a word or prophecy. How poetic is that?! A gift of prophecy or teachers anointing in the jurisdiction of the (networking) of these two bad actors, are coveted for not what they are to produce for Christ, but for reassignment, that will draw resources to their operation of an idol worshiping regime, of self exaltation and advancement. As was Naboth’s vineyard tragically used for.

This is why these gifts and anointings find themselves quenched, or rewarded for doing everything else but the very thing God has given them to do.

So, in order to have Naboth’s vineyard Jezebel hatched a vile and demonically induced scheme. Remember, this operative that empowered Jezebel is an invisible force of seduction, and perversion, that uses legal authority to accomplish its illegal operation, to this day. Ahab’s roll is the self absorbed bishop, pastor, head minister, or head of state; that facilitates it. Look what it did to secure Naboth’s inheritance:

Elders, nobles, and respected leaders, under the influence of the Ahab Jezebel operative, are stirred up against a devout man, and his sacred inheritance. All of them join to accuse Naboth and remove him from his place in the land of Israel. Look at how this man whose name means FRUIT or to produce – had his field of ministry stolen from him! Jesus said, “That you might bring forth fruit and that fruit remain …”

1Kings 21:7-10 Then Jezebel his wife said to him, “You now exercise authority over Israel! Arise, eat food, and let your heart be cheerful; I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.” And she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters to the elders and the nobles who were dwelling in the city with Naboth. She wrote in the letters, saying. Proclaim a fast, and seat Naboth with high honor among the people; and seat two men, scoundrels, before him to bear witness against him, saying, “You have blasphemed God and the king.” Then take him out, and stone him, that he may die.

The theft of destiny often begins with a promotion or flattery in these politically charged gathering places we call church in America. What is thought as acceptance turns into a set up.

By all means they will do or say what they can, in order not to lose assets. It ends with a ruined reputation, when Naboth types resist serving man’s agenda. The accusations begin! Notice how this net work of demonic activity stirs up others to war against the saints and the prophets of God? The seducing spirits working the Jezebel operation, flatters, and offers positions of power, as well as accuses and destroys ministries around it, that do not cooperate with an Ahabic agenda. With the prophets of God, held at bay, this wickedness serves a disobedient, compromising leadership, that is more interested in expanding its own ministry, than it is to be a source of strength for the gifts and inheritances of the saints, in its territory.

Rather, after destroying Naboth, beginning with his reputation and Godly standing, his field of ministry was confiscated for the use of the Ahab Jezebel operation.

I’m sure fresh wine for the courts would have been part of that package before the vegetable garden would be plowed. For a court teeming with what seems to be ecstatic activity; but that activity comes at the expense of the gifts, offerings, inheritances, and souls of men, serving an ordained position of God, gone horribly wrong. Anyone willingly tithing or giving their offerings to this kind of operation, including time and life, are serving a regime that seeks to repurpose Godly assignments of men and women called to ministry, ruining reputations, that will not serve them, that are in their area. While there are lesser degrees of satanic activity suffered by the saints, this is that in its fullness.

They desire to promote and market only themselves. No one else exists in the world of this dynamic duo. Self serving flesh, stirred up by spiritual darkness.

The Christian franchise given over to the Ahab Jezebel M.O. is sinning against God, the actors involved are working in a tried and proven relationship to commit their whoredoms. Ahab, an ordained leader appointed by God, has turned to other god’s and married himself to a servant of Baal. This marriage can be with any thing or anyone that will accommodate his own agenda. King Ahab was a King that went to war but would rather indulge himself with the company of anyone. He was non confrontational towards the enemy, persuasive and accommodating to his peers, yet he was brazenly disobedient to God and rude to those attempting to correct him. Ahab preferred social engagement rather than conflict. He liked good news and snubbed bad news bearers, he also punished them. Even when they were sent to tell him the truth for his own good.

He was not a weak man but his disobedience made him weak, and susceptible to judgment.

He seemed to not be use to the word no, and allowed his counter part to carry out punishments on his behalf. This appears like a sign of weakness, yet in battle, after taking an arrow, he propped himself up in his chariot and faced war through out the day. So he does not go down easy at all. He was in a position God ordained, worthy of honor. He is the prototype of men and women today, called of God to serve. Who instead serve self, rather than Jehovah. In todays world it is a narcissistic agenda. It plagues the western church, and is spreading like a cancer to their disciples.

King Ahab’s greatest idol was himself. 1 Kings 21:25 There was no one like Ahab who SOLD HIMSELF to do wickedness in the sight of the Lord, more so, Jezebel (whom he was married to) STIRRED HIM UP. Chapter 26.

He behaved abominably in following idols. An idol is anything you set up above God. A man’s opinion can be an idol. His or her ministry can be an idol. Ambitions of grandeur can be an idol. Stubbornness is as the sin of idolatry. Heaping burdens on men and women around them that God would not have them carry, because of the traditions, and opinions of men, is a form of idolatry. This is prominent in many churches today, who serve their own personal ambitions rather than the flock of God. They are everywhere where one personality perpetually rides upon the backs of the saints of God, rather than being a part of that body, that carries the commission of Christ, to the nations.

They are first, their talent is first, their vision is first; all will serve the life, and accomplishments of this one who must always be first, with what they can bring to the table. If you tithe into them you are in, if you serve their agenda you are their prophets and servants.

Ahab married an idol worshipper. Men and women of God, starting out innocently answering His call, can be seduced to commit acts of disobedience, out of their own lustful and covetous desires, to the point they have entered into covenants, with demons of perversity engaging in spiritual adultery. This is getting in bed with whoredoms against God. Releasing the Jezebel modus operandi to begin working in their ministry. They will begin to experience a measure of success and expansion. But, eventually trouble comes. Not before their realm of influence is inhabited with soothsaying ministry, and a mechanism of restraint is established against the anointings of God, that would expose the invisible workings of the Jezebel modus operandi.

A satanic seductive, network of perverse spirits, seeking to over throw the saints of God.

There is no such thing as a Jezebel Spirit in scripture, per se, but the Ahab Jezebel dynamic is administered as a proven operative to take down works sanctioned by God, and turn them into a platform serving wickednesses in high places, in order to commit whoredoms against Jehovah. Some refer to Jeremiah’s mention of the Queen of heaven. The queen of Heaven is referring to Anath or Anat a Semitic goddess as commentaries for Jeremiah 44 suggest, but they are all tied in together and belong to the same rebellion from the beginning of time. When Lucifer attempted to exalt himself above God, the Most High, and a third of the angels fell with him.

Men and women in the earth found themselves fallen, as well, through the disobedience of their first parents Adam and Eve, becoming corrupted by their engagements with God’s arch enemy Lucifer, and the fallen angels.

All idol worship falls under the hierarchical workings of spiritual wickednesses in high places, that cause men and women to sin in committing adultery against God. In other words the names of the players can all be different but they are all tied into a satanic, global agenda, to serve rebellion against the Kingdom of God. There are works born of the Spirit, selfless acts of the saints. There are works born of the flesh, these are selfish acts to promote agenda’s under the covering of Christian ministry. Where Christ is named but not obeyed. Where he is said to be worshiped but not truly followed. Yet devout people lend their resources, because they think it is a noble Christ like work.

In the book of Revelation of Jesus Christ, there was a prophet and teacher, who was possessed with the same kind of seducing and perverse spirits, to get people to join her, in the bed of whoredoms she was lying in.

Her name wasn’t necessarily Jezebel as some commentaries suggest may be the case. But she was like Jezebel of old! Revelation 2:20 tells us that she teaches and prophesies. Jesus called her that woman Jezebel! Leading God’s servants into sexual immorality; PARTAKING of offerings sacrificed to idols. This is both spiritual and natural adultery, fornication, and participation in false doctrine; that include stubborn opinions of men, utilizing the sacrifices of others to work in their ministries. There is the Mother of Harlots mentioned in Revelation and these workings described here are hard lined into that satanic operation, that will one day meet an appointed demise.

Meanwhile, we that resist the devil should draw close to God and avoid the seductive lures of this dynamic duo.

If an Ahabic oppressed leadership attempts to preach on Jezebel, they will often teach and prophesy under the power of darkness that is engaging them in her modes of operation. That is the Ahab component deflecting blame from himself who needs to repent and divorce his or her sin of idolatry. Renouncing selfish ambitions. The key to discerning false teachings regarding Jezebel is noting the absence of the Ahabic profile responsible for her. Unrepentant leadership shifts the blame away from themselves, this is another modus operandi of Jezebel, deflection and witch hunts. Often targeting prophets of God. As long as Ahabic leadership continues un corrected and unrepentant, Jezebelic agendas don’t have to budge. Does it seem all so twisted? It in fact is!

Let me remind you of the workings of Leviathan, the KING of all the sons of pride! The twisting serpent! They serve one agenda. Rebellion against God.

Jesus said, He was against the Church that TOLERATES Jezebel! The CHURCH, the ANGEL of the CHURCH OF THYATIRA, was warned about this Jezebel of Revelation. Even though that church’s attributes were love, service, and patience, including the development in good works, Jesus warned the Church not to tolerate her. Those who will not get out of bed with spiritual and natural adulterers, and fornicators, or those that tolerate them, will suffer great tribulation. Jesus said the fruit (or that which springs forth from this modus operandi) will die. While the acts described in this passage seem overt, many times they are not. For example, putting a man or woman on a pedestal is idolatry. This is sin. A man or woman minister who perpetuates this practice, who feeds into it, or tolerates it, is a party to the sin of idolatry.

Fellowships and individuals plagued with sexual sin, in the leadership and among layman, who are committing the sin of adultery; both natural, spiritual, and emotional; against spouse and God, are yielding to seducing spirits that work under whoredoms.

Churches often inundated with illnesses, along with an unusual percentage of medicated members, under the influence of legal pharmaceuticals, are showing signs of the Judgements of a Jezebel Ahab modes operandi, falling under the control of seducing spirits and sorcery. These all come under the sin of whoredoms. Spirit of death, and premature deaths, both natural and spiritual, plague churches that tolerate harlotries against God, where warnings have been ignored. Not discerning the body of Christ, and his selfless sacrifice of the cross.

Idolatry robs people of their purpose, and their destiny. God dealt with Ahab, and the Church of THYATIRA against this satanic modus operandi of seducing God’s creation to serve and worship idols.

Many churches in America have been busy about works born of the flesh, rather than that which is born of the Spirit of God, many resources plundered by Satan, belonging to the saints. Man has been exalted, many times over as personalities have been worshipped, and firmly set on the throne, rather than God in this humanistic society, in the world we live in today. Our church programs disengage us from the mind of Christ, putting us on auto pilot for every season we pass through. Repetitive prayers, hymns, and bible lessons, dutifully offered, but mindlessly engaged.

The Spirit broods over us to impart refreshings and renewal but so few break away from form, to embrace Him.

Revelation 2:18-25  To the angel of the church in Thyatira write:

These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze. I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first. Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds. Now I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan’s so-called deep secrets, ‘I will not impose any other burden on you, except to hold on to what you have until I come.

In the story of King Ahab, he repented for a season. Churches can repent, influential men, and women of God, can resist seducing, perverse spirits, and denounce their idolatry.

This thing can be cleansed out. Jehu, in 2 Kings 9:33 (who plays a type of Jesus, in this passage) called upon Jezebel’s Eunuch’s (a representation of non male or female servants) to cast her down. In other words, Jezebel workers, that carry out the day to day objectives of this modus operandi are not necessarily specifically male or female. No females in the story of Ahab and Jezebel other than Jezebel and her alleged* daughter Athaliah, worked wickedness like her servants, subjects, and prophets, who were all male, or castorated males. The point is they were all male. So in the operatives of a Jezebelic influence, it is more about emasculating Godly authority from its power, so that the Jezebel net work is made comfortable, as Jezebel’s castorated servants made her life easy.

This is more than just a female manipulation over male counterparts. It is a genderless entity manipulating a soulish working.

It is a well oiled machine capturing the souls of men and women called to authority in God’s Kingdom, where the complete surrender of all reproductive capability of ones life and purpose is sacrificed to serve rebellion. These servants created by God to produce fruit in their lives, lose their productivity serving the Jezebel operative. Because this is how the enemy wants to drag the Church into serving idols. Committing whoredoms against God. Male or female leadership must stay sober, do not be deceived don’t become like Ahab, loving self more than God. Do not give seducing spirits place! The Jezebel M.O., uses both male and females as its servant.

We overcome the Jezebel modus operandi by resisting seductions, and casting them down! Resist the devil and he will flee from you! Draw nigh unto God He will draw close to you!

Jezebel is dead and in hell. The demonic hierarchy and net working that used her during King Ahab’s reign is still working today, flesh is not what we war with, the judgments of these evil spirits has its appointed day. Our duty is to resist the devil! Stop working works of the flesh. Quit building kingdoms of men and start building the Kingdom of God. Let that dying thing die, that is dead; and stop throwing the lives and sacrifices of the saints into it! Jehu, shows us how to overcome the lure of a Jezebel operative. Resist the devil, draw close to God, and he will draw close to you! It’s not that hard to recognize. Any place you go called a church, that has a platform, under a spot light, that one man or woman resides under, time and time again, is a meeting place for the Ahab Jezebel compliant. Those that sit in the shadows of this regime, serving their time, life, and resources, are tolerating Jezebel who is flourishing under the Ahabic regime. Revelation 2:20 says, “You tolerate her!” Jehu in 2 Kings 9:33 said to her emasculated servants “Cast her down!”

Resist temptation and cast down all thoughts that exalt themselves above the knowledge and wisdom of God! Throw down works of the flesh. Which is as the sin of witchcraft. End it!

The Raw Truth

1. Jezebel influence rounds up a posse from the pulpit against the prophets of God.
2. Jezebel influence incites people in power against the Elijah anointing.
3.Jezebel enablers are positions of authority that yield to emasculation of power.
4 Jezebel servants are not quiet or soft spoken men, who avoid the microphone.
5.Jezebel servants are not female personalities or women in leadership.
6. Jezebel servants castorate servants for Jezebel. Or, strip them of power.
7. Jezebel operatives don’t take control it is given to them.
8. Jezebel makes a mockery of self serving, fearful, and controlling, shepherds.
9. Jezebel hates obedient, anointed, men and women of God, who are strong in Him.

The worker of whoredoms against God, procures power to destroy the counsel and wisdom of God, that would identify the Ahab Jezebel dynamic. This is a confusing conundrum for those seeking discernment.

Remember in this equation Jezebel is an invisible force. We war not against flesh and blood. An assembly of saints or a ministry controlled by an Ahab Jezebel dynamic begins to serve a satanic agenda which is simply a work of the flesh. Works of the flesh and witch craft are all in the same suit. They serve men not God, agenda’s not destinies, and the Kingdom of Self not Heaven. They are as similar to the real thing as you ever want to get. The offspring ministries of a church or denomination given over to Jezebelic control, will die, as dead works burn. Jezebel’s reign of terror begins with a work sanctioned by God as was King Ahab’s reign. Ahab’s disobedience and alliances, with the enemies of God, brought trouble to His reign.

Wrap up summery.

Ahab was an enabler and a compromiser, he allowed Jezebel to replace the prophets of God with soothsayers. Churches, who have spirits working the Jezebel operation, have no real presbytery, (active older saints) no true fivefold ministry, or prophets among them. They begin to filter out strong male leadership, and over time become full to the brim, with a congregation that has a passive effeminate nature, supporting the dynamic duo’s lust for power, growth, and expansion. A passive congregation will often find itself under the control of an overbearing pastor. Both of the Ahabic Jezebelic operations could be working in one man or woman in charge. Surrounded by emasculated authority that serves their rebellion.

As Christ was tempted in the wilderness, so this same modus operandi of whoredoms (embodied by the flesh woman Jezebel) sought to seduce the very anointing that replaced her husband.

Because anointed Jehu confronted her servants, Jezebel’s power came to an end. Her final place in history was lower than that of the dogs. This spiritual darkness does not like to give up its high position and manifests great arrogance before it leaves, with a final attempt to shamefully seduce the one who is appointed to call for its banishment. That is why the last scene before Jezebel’s demise is a perfect picture of the behavior of this spiritual darkness called seduction, that throws everything it has into its last battle before defeat. The nature of a seducing spirit reveals itself openly in defeat.

The actual flesh woman Jezebel, went down in full costume to a dinner for the dogs. Fully attired in wardrobe headdress, fully made up in her cosmetics, fully engaged in her sorceries.

Ahab and Jezebel never “dirtied” their hands, they let eunuchs, soothsayers, and nobles of their net work do that for them. Jehu never dirtied his hands with Jezebel. The Eunuchs took care of that. Those servants of Jezebel men made as “not male or female” shows us several types of human manifestations of a servant or slave of Jezebel operations, that simply need to be cast down, beginning in the mind, as an act of choice, to begin their freedom from perversions. It goes like this: The flesh woman named Jezebel had eunuchs that kept her comfortable, and met her needs. The human servants of this network of unclean spirits serving the Jezebel modus operandi can either be male or female, they can be spiritually emasculated men, or dominating females, they can like wise display effeminate characteristics in males or, manly characteristics in females. However, the most dangerous servant of the Ahab Jezebel operative, and the most common, is one that looks and acts no different than any one else male or female. But has been altered in their purpose.

These servants whom ever they are must renounce their whoredoms against God by throwing down Jezebel which is a battle against their mind in an act of obedience to Christ.

In leadership today, a man or woman committed to Godly leadership abide in Christ and serve the Kingdom of God! For those whom have set themselves above God in acts of disobedience and selfish ambition, this means to repent, and renounce works of the flesh, and turning back to a life of obedience. Casting down every high thought that exalts itself above the knowledge and wisdom of God, bringing every high thought or suggestion, into the captivity of the obedience of Christ! This is the beginning of overcoming seducing spirits, and perversity; that falls under the wicked works of spiritual adultery, or whoredoms against God. As Jehu challenged Jezebel’s Eunuchs on whom they would serve, so is the cry of the Spirit of Christ, “Who is on my side, who will you serve? The Eunuchs answer was in their action, they threw Jezebel down!

Galatians 5:19-21 New King James Version (NKJV)

Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will NOT inherit the kingdom of God.

James 3:13-18

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil work. But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.  

Colors In Dream Symbolism

What color means in dreams.

Listen to a teaching on :

Prophetic Interpretation NeWinePouring 

The color of clothing and their type is detail that should always be written down when we are journaling our dreams.

What we are dressed in is subject to change, depending on what we are doing and the seasons we are in. What we are wearing changes only when we decide to change our clothes. If we want we can wear shorts in the winter, or a coat in the summer; but, we make choices that best suites us and/ or is reflective of our environment, this includes what we are doing, as well. (Working in the garden, going to a party; attending a funeral, or wedding.) The colors in the back drop of a dream is often representative of mood. What we are wearing reflects an emotional or spiritual condition that details more prophetic understanding regarding our occupation, our social interactions, our rest, and recreation.

Earth, water, soil, vegetation and the sun all reflect colors that are representative of their elements. Browns are earthy and speak matters that tend to be earthy. Adam was made of the dust of the ground. It speaks of the flesh, or of those things that are of the flesh. A dirt road is our natural walk in this earth, brown clothes, often the same. Blue is representative of the sky, and is more heavenly, etc.

The Color Black

Often, when people see themselves or someone else wearing black it represents sorrow, mourning, heaviness, famine, lack, or sin. What the person is doing in the dream gives context to the mood, and their emotional condition. The key is that clothing can be taken off and replaced with another wardrobe, therefore their condition is subject to change. It takes intent and the will to change. Sin, sickness, sorrow, famine, and disease are all remedied by seeking the one who is our life. Jesus died that we might live, He was beaten with many stripes that we may be healed. Thirst and famine of soul and body is remedied through Him. Jesus feeds our soul He is the bread of life, the Father provides for His sons and His daughters. Doubt, fear, and unbelief; even a famine of the Word of God, clothes us in lack. This is depicted in black. We can put off all of these things by pressing on in CHRIST. When we are wearing black in our dreams our garment, normally, is in need of change.

If we do not trust the Lord in everything, if we see our condition as lacking, then we tend to turn away from God, we need to believe in the full work of the cross, that all our short comings are truly washed by the blood. With out faith it is impossible to please God. Still, in our place where we fall short he speaks to us, in our doubts, fears, and troubled hearts. While we were yet sinners Christ died for us, how much more in this life time will HE reach out to us, in our need for Him. Even when our back is turned away from HIS best for us, he desires to minister love and comfort. The Lord desires to show HIS more perfect way in all matters concerning the man or woman who knows he/she needs God.

A broken and contrite heart, oh lord, thou will not despise.

The Lord wants all of us to have faith in a clear conscience and stand up in our authority in CHRIST pushing back the circumstances that often overwhelm us. We begin doing that by putting on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. This an act of our will, and choice. Simply, we can say that as a decree out loud. “I put on the garment of praise, I will dress my self in joy. Who’s report will I believe regarding my future? I will believe in the report of the Lord. Though there be Giants in the land of my promise, the son of David has slain them.

Isaiah 52: Wake up, wake up, O Zion! Clothe yourself with strength. Put on your beautiful clothes, O holy city of Jerusalem, for unclean and godless people will enter your gates no longer.

The clothing we wear in our dreams are what we we have dressed ourselves with.

The garment of praise (made to replace the spirit of mourning, sorrow, heaviness, sin awareness, famine) is so powerful even the lint … (the dust remnants of that garment) is able to speak to us encouragement and instruction. Calling us to return to the joy of our salvation, a voice bringing hope in our sorrows.

Isaiah 61:3: to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

Black as famine (Jeremiah 14:1 – 2, Lamentations 5:10), mourning and sorrow (Job 30:28, 30, Jeremiah 8:21, 14:2), lack of revelation (spiritual light) from God (Micah 3:6). (Jude 13) meaning blocked from light.

Truth In Assessments

image-827866405.jpeg

In a world where things are often not what they seem, it is a Christian’s duty to pursue truth. In Christ it’s that one thing obtainable for wanting it. He that is hungry and thirsty for righteousness sake shall be filled. Deception is for those who love not the truth and hate not the lie. When life throws us a set of circumstances out side of our control, such as a destructive storm, or a personal life altering event, the only two things we can really depend on is truth and trust, the truth of God’s word and trust in His promises.

Rebuilding on a firm foundation begins  with truth, in the following assessmentsIn the assessment of damage and estimate of repairs.

After every storm, it is up to us to decide what is salvageable and what is loss. To count the cost of rebuilding. With God no task is insurmountable. No damage un restorable, no impossibility impossible. What limits God is not our lack of strength, or our fear over the circumstances, or even our hurt or anger toward Him. What limits God is our slowness in accepting truth. The truth that what just happened did in fact happen, is not something that can easily be comprehended, as any one who has been in an accident, war zone, or disaster can tell you. Yet the sooner we realize that we just servived the unsurvivable, thanking God in all things, the better positioned we are to minimize further loss and damage by engaging a sound mind in the immediate events around us. This comes easier for those who have already disciplined their mind in prayer and the pursuit of peace as a daily endeavor. All is paramount in accepting what can be done when starting over.

The truth in cause, and the evaluation of viability in what remains. Foundations and infrastructure are often left in the aftermath of a storm, that can be restored.

However, the lesson learned following Hurricane Sandy, teaches us that what we rebuild on, could be a set up for even more devastation. The famous board walk along the New Jersey shore that was badly damaged, was hastily rebuilt only to go up in flames because of faulty wiring, not replaced from the old structure. This could have been avoided by an uncomprimising acceptance of truth in the practice of principles and standards. For example the word of God tells us not to build in the sand, not to patch an old garment with new fabric. Not to put new wine in old wine skins. Asking questions of our standards. Did we build a mud hut in a flood zone? Did we erect a trailer in tornado ally? Did we build a house over a dry creek? Will rebuilding be in vain because of climate change? Will the same material used before be a liability? Should a wood structure be built-in drought stricken “foothills? That is why we have zoning laws. That is why the bible and its standards for living, its rules of engagement, its wisdom in making right decisions, are reasons why we do research, and get are permits, from God to build. So that errors will not be made all over again. 

The removal of debris.

We can’t break new ground with out removing debris. Getting over the fear that something salvageable will be missed. That somehow moving on, means giving up on dreams. At some point, we have to step back, stop picking through our loss, and turn the destruction over to clearance. This is truth in acceptance. To clear the damage. This is letting go and letting God. It is the last decision made concerning the past,  and the first decision made towards the future. It is a conscious decision to release what was, and begin to embrace hope for what will be. We can cling to old relics of the past and bring them into our life as a monument of all our yesterdays, or we can fill the walls and shelves of our new day, with the  treasures discovered in life’s present lessons and value. Monuments are good at what they do, they remind us to remember lessons learned, in previous journeys. We go to them to do that, but no one should live in a grave yard. Yet, people live in the past in their minds all the time, mourning what could have been, or even what should have been. There is no path of renewal there, only sorrow and regret. But God doesn’t call us to that.

Truth in estimates, the cost of repair, and requirements to rebuild. Truth in resource, having what it takes economically and emotionally. 

Being honest in the will to rebuild, and  contentment in what was. Asking yourself if rebuilding where it ended is what you really want. The circumstances of life will manage those who refuse to live it truthfully, purposely, and principally. We may have standards, but might live and work in a lawless atmosphere where other people are setting their standards that bring us shame. At some point there may be a time when preservation is not a decision to be made, but a response for survival. When your back yard begins to turn into a mud slide down a ravine there is no time to plan, all you can do is react. What can be noted ahead however, is that structures built on a mountain side are susceptible to mud slides during heavy rain.  A husband battling addiction, who is the bread-winner, is that house on the mountain side in a heavy rain. A wife who has a gambling problem that is in charge of paying the mortgage payment is too. Wisdom sees the potential collapse and fault in non principled living, and makes arrangements for its failure.

This is not a fear driven assessment. It is truth in making an assessment.

Being emotionally lead is soulish. Being spiritually led by the Spirit of God, is a yielded life to the counsel of God’s word. They that walk in the Spirit will not fulfill the desires of the flesh Galatians 5. God says, acknowledge me in ALL your ways and I will guide and direct your path! Let HIM search your heart. For the spirit of man is the candle of the Lord searching the inward part of the belly. Because the heart is exceedingly wicked we cannot trust it. That is why we go to the Father with the intent to be honest with him, with a willingness to accept the truth and not deny it. For an honest and truthful assessment of our lives, and circumstances, clears the fog. Decisions that are right come from seeing right. Hearing right. This needs to be actively contended for. Deception and denial are our worst enemy in a time of crises. In the world we live in now, we have already been lulled into a slumber in the midst of a raging storm, when we really need to have our wits about us. Jesus said watch and pray. Today, we need to be fully awakened and seek truth no matter what the cost.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 King James Version (KJV)  For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

 

Inordinate Affections

1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy race, a peculiar people; that you should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Inordinate affection is an over the top passion, about anything other than our love for the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. An inordinate affection causes us to act disorderly and leads to sin. The greek word associated with it is pathos, meaning mental- you find it in the word: pathological, or psychopathic. We can get mental about a lot of things in this world these days and loose the mind of Christ in it! In fact, with the help of mainstream media and its dangerous slant on truth, many are developing opinions and a world view, in these end times, that will feed into what is described in the bible as the great deception. Satan, the bible says, is like a roaring lion pacing back and forth, seeking for an opportunity to devour. He is looking for the hamstring knock out, that will take us down. For example:

There are Christians that have kept a level head so far, maintaining a balanced view on current social headlines, or issues, until it began to bleed into the NFL.

Suddenly, we have people that (have been thought to be rational and balanced, in their views) going over the top, with inordinate or pathos’ responses because now it has touched on something that they are truly passionate about! The enemy will find our boiling point that will throw us into the ring, letting the god of this world, and the prince of the power of the air, fuel anger to the point we become inflamed; rather than, allowing the Spirit of God to temper our passions. 

Nothing, should warrant division among the family of God in these days of ethnic uprisings, prophesied by Christ. We are one holy race. That is it. In all things there is the mind of Christ to be had! If we cleave to our heritages forgetting that God said our heritage is of HIM, then that will breed contention, in times of tension, among ethnic uprising. I suspect that there will be those that have such strong ties, culturally, they will not embrace their heritage that is of the Father, and they will forsake it. Had they ever looked into their identity in Christ, they would have understood what a great inheritance we have in Him. Heirs they are, who believe in their heart that God rose Jesus from the dead, confessing with their mouth He is Lord! Romans 10:9-10

In a world such as ours we should know one thing more than anything else. That is Christ and Him crucified. Seeking discernment of spirits, to differentiate between what all should be known, and what the prince of the power of the air wants us to believe.

Little Children guard your hearts and minds, keep yourself from idols, as John would say. Remembering, we all shall need adjusting, and do even now, like Peter when Jesus said, “You don’t know what spirit ye are of.” For everyone will be tempted to activism when it gets hard, this will be difficult. In all things we should remember that we are Ambassadors of Jesus Christ. So, all we should do and say, is what HE would do and say, to those who dwell outside of HIS Kingdom.

Many, are well acquainted with Jesus but have rejected him, and HIS servants, time and time again; and would have the mind of Christ now, in these days of crisis in America, if they would have listened to Him a long time ago. Still, we compel all … to come.  We the (true church) will have the answers. We are citizens of the Kingdom of God. Hopefully, there will be media out reach, and I know many are set up for this, who can be a relevant voice of reason. Rightly dividing the word of truth.

The Lord, spoke to me about a leavening that would be introduced to the whole lump, if we didn’t make sure to: “Guard your hearts and minds in the days and weeks to come.” I heard the Lord say, “You knew it would be just a matter of time?” I answered, “Yes Lord.” Knowing to warn all that love HIM, to know that our affections, our passions; who or what we love, will be used  by the enemy to pull any one of us into an agenda, that is earth bound, not heaven sent. In these amazing times the Lord will use His anointed to do great and mighty exploits. Many in the Spirit poised to be a clear and present force with in these days of shakings to come. To be a steady voice in the wilderness, and a stabilizer in the midst of chaotic times. Nevertheless, new works are always at the risk of take over, when they are easiest to infiltrate. That is why we have a carnage of slaughtered unborn, and sexualy abused children, that are targeted in this ruthless world we live in. Satan knows new beginnings don’t have a firm identity to resist splitting its purpose, or aborting it altogether. It will begin with what we think is right and true, because a passion has flared up on the inside of us! Just like pro abortion activists! But the question has to be asked, where did it come from, how was it fueled? Will we end up with more dead works in the world? Another voice of compromise, a mixture in this world? Or, will what God has begun among his Church, His ekklesia, become the representation of the Lord Jesus Christ in the earth?  An Embassy representing Yeshuah, and His Kingdom ways. In this they will know us by OUR love.

 Leavening is a fermentation that begins to spread in the dough, it lies dormant until all the right conditions come together and then it spreads very quickly.

If one were to change their mind about adding yeast, it can only be done if the fermentation is localized and then cut out, after its been introduced. Leavening is like sin. SIN means to fall short. A thing can seem right until it is debated, or another side is told. A man thinks to himself  his way is right, but the end of that way is death. I pray that in every way, we as Christians seek the full counsel of God, in all things. Because perilous times are coming. Why should we take a rabid dog by the ears in an argument not our own, in a time when evil is all around us? We are in this world not of it, and careful prayer for supernatural wisdom is required to navigate through all things called a controversy, victoriously. In Mathew 24 Jesus said, there will be wars and rumors of war, nation will rise against nation .. the word in greek for nation is ETHOS’ from it the word ethnic is derived. Believe me brothers and sisters, you will want both feet in the Kingdom of God in these days of wars, and rumors of wars, nations rising up against nations! Not leaving one foot, stubbornly, stirring in those sin born controversies where there is no clear path to embrace. For sin lies in the heart of men. The heart is exceedingly wicked. Cleave to God and His son the Lord Jesus, He will give you a VOICE that will be heard, in these ethnic risings, and rumors of war! You are of one faith and baptism, you are of a Holy Priesthood one nation. Why do the heathen rage and the peoples imagine a vain thing? As we read on in Mathew chapter 24 the scripture says, “and this gospel shall be preached …” see that? (And) (while) (as) these things are going on – This gospel shall be preached!

We cannot be doing both! It is clearly one way or the other. Either you and I are part of the uprising, the wars, and rumors of wars, or we are preaching this gospel Of the Lord Jesus Christ! Remember you are in Christ, dead to the old man! The old man is a reveller!  The message of the cross, and true repentance of sin is the answer to mankind’s ills. 

Psalms 2:8 Ask me and I will make the Nations [Etho’-s] your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. 

Collosians 3:1-17

Put on the New Self. If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.  For you are DEAD, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with him in glory.

Mortify therefore your members which are on the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience: In the which you also walked some time, when you lived in them.  But now you also put off all these; ANGER, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.  Lie not one to another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his deeds;  And have put on the new man, which is RENEWED in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Where there is NEITHER Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor un circumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

Put on therefore, AS THE ELECT of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long-suffering;  Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do you.  And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfection.  And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also you are called in one body; and be you thankful.  Let the WORD of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and ADMONISHING one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.  And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

Corporate Anointing

they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, you are God, which have made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that is in them …Acts 4:24

I want to talk about the power of corporate moves of God, brought into smaller meetings at home. When we meet together in Christ we might as well begin to think of ourselves as the member of an orchestra or choir! Because this is what the Church is, an instrument in God’s orchestra! After all we are called the Body of Christ, and every part has his or her place.

Lifting Up One Voice

While in buildings, a larger group usually has a platform for appointees to lead out, and bring congregants into unified prayer or worship; in smaller groups it doesn’t necessarily have to work that way, because they are often less structured. We need to remember the first Christian family met under circumstances more similar to a home meeting, rather than buildings and platforms; with microphones, and speakers. Jesus said that when ever two or three are gathered in His name, there HE is in our midst. This is going to be different than our personal time with Him, that is usually inwardly focused. Christ is in us, and we are in Him. In a group He draws us outward to the center of the gathering, where He is. He is the head of the Church, and we (through Him) become joined in a corporate move of HIS Spirit.

When we continue to gather in this way Jesus nits our hearts together, and we become unified in spirit, as the group evolves.

Coming together in one mind and accord is quickly accomplished by praying, and worshiping together, as long as the prayer, praise, and worship, achieves corporate status. What the bible calls “coming together in one mind and in one accord.” As strange as it seems, individuals in a group gathering can be so timid and internal in their prayers and worship, that the group never achieves a true unity of spirit. In fact fractions are more likely to exist in a corporate setting that does nothing to spiritually unify the people to function as a body. Jesus is unable to show His power among them, they must yield to the corporate anointing, and enter in.

A good way to enter in is by simply yielding to an anointed vocal lead that has lifted their voice up in prayer, or praise, to draw the group into unity. In a smaller setting the group can just begin to move in open laudation, until a lead voice is made distinct while praises to God go upward. The lead laudation is an anointed voice of worship, prayer, or praise, that the group finds easy to follow. Your spirit will feel the power of agreement. 

What is then good to do is to blend into that laudation. As other voices blend, the lead out dissolves into a corporate voice, this group has achieved a “one in mind and one in accord” voice of praise, worship, and prayer. The lord uses whom ever HE wills, and with that we begin to blend our voice in worship, with the most anointed laudation going forth among the saints, (whom ever the Spirit has moved upon) and this is going upward, and not inward, but is of throne room power! Following inspired leads in the Spirit is called “being carried in” to anointed worship. Worship leaders do that for congregations all the time, if they have the anointing to do so.

I’ve seen groups become so unified that no lead voices are needed, they just enter into the high praises of God all at once! Jumping into the deep side of the river of God all at the same time!

It is the Holy Spirit that leads the saints to a higher ground of worship, praise, power, and ministry. Remember we want that because it is the anointing that breaks the yoke! An Holy Spirit inspired group breaks powerful resistances! Sometimes, in spirit filled meetings, there is an appointed person that has that spearhead anointing and they may do that for a season. But, it can change, and should be interchangeable as new lead voices enter in. As the scripture says when something is revealed to another they should then have their turn, and the word says let the first prophet then yield. 1 Corinth 29:29-30

So when a new voice of leading matches the existing voice in anointing, the new voice should be given place, that will lead the group up and onward toward unified prayer, worship, and praise! This is good practice in prophecy, ministry, sharing the word, and spiritual songs. Sometimes the person who leads out hears a laudation of praise in a less bold voice that they blend with, and they amplify it up corporately and that starts the one mind and one accord laudations, because they carried an anointing that leaped in their spirit when it was heard. A wise worship leader will amplify from their platform what is hitting the masses, in waves of glory, to pull it in and send it back out, that the glory reaches those at the far ends of the meeting place. In a smaller groups, the group just carries it on from glory to glory.

Give The Lord His Due

We Got to give God HIS first before we move in on a pre determined event or need. Sometimes, our Spirit filled worship brings so much power the needs are washed away, and freedom falls down like a blanket over everyone. The first Spirit filled meeting moved in this way, while all were praying in one accord, the power of God came down and they were all filled! When we pray, and a voice goes forth with power, and it is outward and not inward, and it leads and lifts the gathered believers up into corporate anointed prayer- then that unified prayer will carry against oppositions, against God’s people, on a corporate level, or even city wide.

It brings in the move of the Spirit!  As one makes five thousand to run, two or more makes tens of thousands! This is the power of unified prayer against the enemy! In the event that the Spirit leads us into unified prayer, it is good to remember, our prayer closet prayers are wonderful, but corporate prayer ministry is a little different.

When we bury our face, or walk to a corner, and start praying to ourselves, or turn on our own music, and plug it into our ears, we are disbanding from the group.

We should do these kind of prayers before meetings, only. To get our heads straight for the group. It’s ok to have early time in a corporate setting to give people time alone with God, but when it’s time to come together, it is time to walk out of our prayer closet and join the group.  When the saints of God continue in corporate ministry, the mind of Christ will come forth. Christ is working by His Spirit, collectively in the midst of the saints, that are gathered. Together, our hearts are synchronized by the Spirit of the Lord to carry the burden of the Lord.

When we lead in prayer out loud we must not go to prayer changing from subject to subject, as if we are working through a list. We have to make sure we do not shift the focus, before others are able to audibly agree or enhance the prayer with their own spoken power of agreement. Saints that run through a list of prayers, leading in corporate prayer, are forgetting that they are not in their prayer closet, and that another instrument of God may harmonize on the matter, in a way God may reveal them to do so. That will add power towards the answer.

Also, when in corporate prayer our prayer focuses should be corporate when praying for individuals in the community. Instead of praying for that one in jail, pray for all those that are in jail and prison in the community. Or that one battling cancer, come against the spirit of cancer on all the saints of God you know. Trouble with a child, lift up all sons and daughters in rebellion, because in that group there is power to do it! Remembering to give room, and give place, to one another. So that not one stone is left un turned. For another vessel in the group may have a revelation to share on that burden of prayer; bringing words of knowledge, and wisdom, in the matter, that would move it into victory.

When corporate anointing is freely expressing itself in unity, an event of power and Holy distribution of healing and deliverances will ensue.

Like what happened on the day of Pentecost, a powerful move of God spilled out into the city through a Spirit filled, unified group, unashamedly worshipping God!

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come,  they were all with ONE ACCORD in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house. Act2:1

This is how we can be sure to be led by the SPIRIT and not by our human spirit or emotions. When we allow group ministry to enter the house on a corporate level, at times healing and deliverances take place while we are busy unified in the Spirit, in worship and prayer. It is later after we have ushered in the SPIRIT like one mighty river (with our individual streams of worship, and prayer joining in) that there will be an abundance of anointing to do personal ministry over those who have already been under a deluge of power, in unified praise and worship.

This is that which loosens and pre-soaks hard roots so that personal ministry and deliverance will be most effective. Over the years I have had many prayer meetings, and home meetings, and have taught on corporate prayer. It is very sad to attend a prayer meeting at a church or an event that has 50 to a hundred people walking around, by themselves, standing in a corner, bent down at an alter, and milling around in the foyer, and you can hear a pin drop, with no unified voices lifted up! This is not corporate prayer.  It is individual prayer in a corporate setting, and more times than not the Spirit of God is quenched, and the power that could have been released from that meeting, is for ever lost.

When groups first begin to come together. It is important that ministry doesn’t get locked into an introverted flow, time and time again.

It’s important to minister to one another, and is in many ways the whole point;  but, when we give the Father the first portion of anything- the latter portion will be multiplied, in healings, deliverances; and in word, and prophecy! As we seen with Peter, who preached to the people when 3,000 were saved! He did this after a corporately anointed meeting! 

Getting Started With A Reserved Group

If you have a church or group and it is difficult to bring the group together in one mind and accord, than making a gesture to come in a circle to hold  hands is  a good start. That is a unity excersize, as is singing songs, and letting people each share, breaks the ice. But you may have to embarrass your flesh to lead them into out loud laudation yourself. Go ahead there is usually one just hoping you would so they can join you in the bunch!  Lead them into that abandoned worship, where each one forgets about him or herself self, and lifts their voice entering into the flow of the Spirit- this is called the high praises of God, and is what creates extraordinary moves of the Spirit.

Holy! Holy!  Holy!  Lord God almighty! Who was, is and is the to come!

I AM ZION

I Lay in Zion for a foundation, a stone.

Psalm 125:1-2
Those who trust in the LORD Are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the LORD surrounds his people. 

A prophetic dream.

Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed.

Lately, a lot has been said about Zionism and Zionists. I rejoice with the Jews, being returned to their homeland! Because God said that was what He was going to do in the latter years, He would return them to their land! We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. However my support stops at the rebuilding of the temple. Jesus tore that temple down and raised it up after three days. Clearly He spoke of HIS body. I’m not touching that, I’m not sending in my fifty dollars to clone back a red heifer. Jesus is the true temple. Do Christians really need to be reminded that the sacrificial lamb was sacrificed in the person of Jesus Christ, the son of God?  Jesus, was once and for all sacrificed for the remission of sins, and there is no other provision, but what Jesus did for all man kind upon the cross, I would never support, or want to support, an institution that Christ himself has done away with! Reinstating the daily sacrifice, would be an obomination. If I am wrong then I am wrong; however, if I am right and Christians are helping to rebuild that temple to reinstate the daily sacrifice, they are Apostate. Paul called this category of activity, a bewitchment from the truth. The Jews do not have a separate work to be performed for them. The first Christians were Jews. They must receive Christ, as us all. Make sure you’re not perpetuating a damnable offense, by helping to raise an altar Christ himself has done away with. Nothing, can trump the Lord’s sacrifice. EVER.

That being said, scripture brings us back to the pure stream of God’s word! In regard to ZION!

I had a dream that cleared it all up for me. Maybe my dream will do it for you too.

Dream 5/11/17

There was a young Christian man. He seemed weathered and in some turmoil, his companion was dressed in black, she was about to have a baby. They were in an unholy union, a Christian bound to the Law. Married to it!  He kept saying “When Zion comes it will be better, I’m looking for Zion.” This went on for awhile, he was defeated and broke, his clothes were ragged, and dirty. This Christian was full of sin awareness. He confessed Christ but the blood of Jesus needed more of his help, in his mind. He was married to the law. He was always coming up short. Him and the sin awareness he was married to were going to have a baby, his offspring would be called the Final Church of the Dead Born. Their destiny (man, woman, and offspring) was a place called much tribulation. My SPIRIT Had enough, listening to him mourn for Zion. In the dream I abruptly turned to him and said, Look here “I Am ZION!” The words rolled off my tongue with righteous indignation! Justice seemed to accent the words when I said, “I !!Am!! ZION!!!”  A little surprised at myself, I had to stop and think about it, but knew it was true!

I want to tell you that before this dream I never really thought about Zion one way or another. Not in any special revelatory way. Though not surprised by the statement, I Am Zion. It fits in the scheme of things pretty well, right now. 

I wanted him to know Christ as I did, and himself as the blood bought that we are. Letting those words drop deep into his soul, knowing how I would have to explain it to him later. He just kept looking at me in shock, while we were trying to get him to face this birth (the ramifications) of this un holy union HE was responsible for. The birth of his offspring (come from doubt and unbelief) would bring much tribulation. I believe that this dream reveals what mixing the law with grace looks like. Jesus came to redeem us from the curse of the law. If we continue sharing the altar of Christ’s sacrifice, with our own kind of righteousness, and refuse to seek understanding to know how great a salvation HE attained for us, then this mixture will bring forth a new and terrible religion of compromise, it will secure millions of souls into the grip of the last horse and rider of the apocalypse. Death followed by hell. Whole cities, and armies, will be swallowed up into the yawning gasp of the devil’ s hell. Along the lawless will be those who still believe their own kind of righteousness will award them heaven. They don’t know who they are. Zion is a distant and lofty dream. In that they have neglected a great salvation, disqualified from obtaining the full benefits of Christ’s work on the cross. The healing, and deliverance, the power of God, the Ambassadorship, and the authority.

Sweet praying CHURCH who makes herself ready, you’re the redeemed of the Lord! We are ZION we have come, already.  I believe in a literal return of the Lord Jesus Christ- I believe His head quarters will be in Jerusalem, what ever that will look like, what ever that will be. We have earthly bodies, and heavenly bodies, God is redeeming the earthly body last. We still live in the body of this death; but, as Job 19:26 said “my dead body eaten of worms, will one day rise, and I will see God in my flesh!  The first fruits of the dead, even Christ himself said, “I AM HE who liveth and was dead, now behold I am alive forever more! Saying, I am He who WAS, IS and IS to come …!” HE is in us, dwelling in the city of a heavenly Zion, where the Lamb is the light in us, in these earthen vessels! The Spirit of God wrote the CHURCH a love letter in Isaiah 62, while comforting His people He spoke of the Church, prophetically, so we can rise up and know we will manifest HIM in the earth for we (the Church) is that enduring  CITY, individually and collectively where the LAMB IS THE LIGHT! As there will be a city with HIM in it, when HE comes! I’m not one of those who looks at the spiritual only,  because we live in a material world. Jesus came in the flesh, He is here in us, and He will soon return, and we shall be changed, when He does. In fact the word says:

… beloved believe not every spirit, for every spirit that believes not that Jesus is come in the flesh is not of God 1 John 4:2-3

We are spiritual Israel the people of HIS promise grafted in! He described us in Isaiah 60, and our commissioning in Isaiah 61!!! With out revelation of that (of who God says we are) that “the CHURCH (spiritual Israel) is ZION NOW, of Isaiah 62- even the by-product, virgin posterity, maiden daughter, of the original … daughters of Zion.

Those who came from us who do not continue in the faith, but who do co-mingle in this unholy union with death, (my people perish for lack of knowledge) produce dead religious works. This is death followed by hell in its purest form. There is nothing more dead than those who refuse to continue in the truth, in what God has done through Jesus Christ! And who we are in HIM! The physical City of David is an archeological wonder, of rock and dirt. The promise of God was that David would never lack an heir sitting on the Throne Of David. When we become a Christian, Christ the root of Jesse, lion of Judah, and Judge of Israel began to reign from the throne of our hearts. Christ in us the Hope and Glory. We are the fortress of David,

When we realize we are Zion in Isaiah 62  (the Lord said, “I’ll not rest until she receives the torch of her salvation!” then we will rejoice in understanding that Isaiah 60 is us now too, saying: arise and shine For your light has come!  … Christ in us the hope and glory! That Isaiah 61 is our commissioning, (the Spirit of the Lord is upon me …) the works he did shall we do also. Study these three, put your hand on your heart and say, the Lord my God dwells in Zion!

Joel 3:17 I Am the Lord your God dwelling in Zion.

Isaiah 60:14 And they shall call you The City of the Lord,
Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

Psalm 132:13 For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling!

I want to say this, it doesn’t matter who will, or who won’t rise up and come along; for many, their mind sets, and their traditions, will get in the way! They will continue to serve a defeated Christ under the ordinances of men! Never moving beyond the more elementary provisions of the law. Forever preaching on sin, because they still stumble on that stumbling block themselves. Nothing will make you clean but trusting in the power of the blood of Jesus. If we are going to camp out in one place, let us camp beside this cleansing stream.

1 Peter 2:7-9 But to those who do not believe the stone the builders rejected has become the corner stone, “A stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.” Because they do not obey His word .. But You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation …

But know this, the REMNANT has always been a straggling few, the marginalized, the disenfranchised; even as David’s band of brothers, whom knew God’s chosen, that were mighty warriors who won battles for the benefit of the reign of David. Great accomplishments for the kingdom of God will be won by those who believe in the power of Jesus Name! God reserves the most awesome battles for the smallest of armies. And has his 300 (type) in reserve; even HIS weaker vessels shall arise in this hour!

To Display His Power!

In a time when righteous judgment is needed in the land- God is calling, “Deborah, arise and go down. Bring this word to the commander of hosts …”

God used Deborah to take down the iron chariot army, that intimidated Israel, holding hostage (lands of promise) too long. These biblical and prophetic types are now IN CHRIST, and IN Christ Jesus there is no race or gender that is disqualified. Male or female Greek or Jew …. Those who rise up and join the faithful GET TO SHARE in Christ’s reward. I’m not waiting for NO ONE TO CATCH UP with me. That is the devil’s lie! Even Deborah’s Barak said, “If you go I will go.”  And Barack was mentioned in the FAITH HALL OF FAME, listed as one who subdued kingdoms with the rest of God’s flawed, but faith filled valiant! He didn’t care about ego! The etymology of Deborah means BEE which is spoken as Devorah. It is the feminine form of davar, litterally meaning: Word! You see BARAK took the WORD OF THE LORD into battle with Him! So this nonsense regarding Barak being a coward is a spot and wrinkle in modern Christian teaching, needing ironed out once and for all! Barak was ORDAINED TO TAKE THE WORD OF GOD with HIM TO BAttlE, and he did so prophetically when Deborah went with him! The ancient letter of Hebrews lists him in the Faith HALL of FAME, not shame! Let me tell you God gives that kind of warrior (who insists on the WORD with HIM in every battle) the blessing of thorough and accurate resolve. This kind – even this one of biblical acclaim Captain BARAK, isn’t just any HIGH level commander, He is a true defender of the faith that went out against that dreaded army of iron. Others avoided this same people before him. Certainly the early CHURCH regarded Barak well.

To demote such a man as so many have in their sermons and commentary, who have labeled him a coward for taking a woman to battle with him, lack in understanding, and have not “searched the matter out.” Erroneously, using this as a lesson that weak men need a Deborah. When actually God was revealing his might against a powerfully strong army. It was a house wife named Jael that took down its commander! 

In the song of Deborah and Barak a GENERAL OF GOD’S ARMY, (who didn’t get there by weakness by the way) sang a song that GAVE all honor and glory to The Father, it wasn’t in him to get the glory, he just wanted the VICTORY, a woman getting praise for her bravery outshined Barak’s exploits, not because He was less of a man- but because the woman who killed the captain of the opposing army, Sisera, was A WOMAN in her home serving milk! It wasn’t even Deborah who was the hero in all of this but Jael! She utterly defeated the CAPTAIN of the army of of 900 iron CHARIOTS! That was the point!! Once again to remind the Children of Israel, The Lord thy God In the midst of thee is mighty! The week shall be strong, and it will go well with those that know how to give honor to the weaker vessel, for it is through them, He reveals HIS power. God has proven over and over again the battle is not to the swift or to the strong, but the battle belongs to the Lord! When they ask you who you are tell them: I Am ZION!! As Zion is in the midst of Jerusalem, so the Lord is in the midst of His people, the Lord God, in the midst of you is mighty! CHRIST in us the Hope and glory, and we are in Him abiding. He is our head and we are HIS body! WHO is Zion, who is Jerusalem? Who is the city where the LAMB is the light? I Am, WE ARE- You can call me ZION!

Again the word of the LORD of hosts came to me, saying, thus said the LORD of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury. Thus said the LORD; I am returned to Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth … 

Psalm 125:1-2
Those who trust in the LORD Are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever.

As Mount Zion is in the midst of Jerusalem, so the Lord is in the midst of HIS people.
