Deborah from the East

Deborah from the East

Apples, Bees, and the Doe of the Morning.

I had a dream that a “Deborah” came from the East and went to a place in the mid northwest, and met another “Deborah”, at Apple Bee’s! Which is interesting because the name “Deborah” comes from the word “bee” which also, is understood to mean, one who brings word. The idea is that a bee will go find a food source and then bring that information back to the hive, along with a sample of what was found! God’s Deborahs do not only give “the word of the Lord”, but also, communicates to the family of God how they can find it for themselves.This is what makes them not only a prophet, but one capable of leading in the house of God … Like Deborah of the Bible a prophet and a Judge.

Proverbs 25:11 “a word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver”. The Word of the Lord from God’s Deborah shall also come to bee!

imageI like to say that there are men who will not go to battle without their Deborahs (but at least they go to battle.) Barak went to battle with the “Word” of the Lord. And would not go with out it. What a mighty man of God. “You will not get the glory Barak”, she said. And that was fine with him as long as he had his” Deborah”. After all the Glory belongs to the Lord, amen? The story of Deborah is found in the book of Judges Chapters 4 and 5

The Deborah who came to meet the Deborah from the East was a little hesitant, she said to the Deborah from the East, “You scare me!” Then the Deborah from the East waited. In the next scene Deborah from the mid northwest was laying down on her back and the Deborah from the East, laid her hand upon her belly, and that Deborah began to pour out to God the cry of her heart. She was very specific and honest regarding her grievances and they were mingled with in her gratitude and love towards the Father. This is how we can make our complaints before Him with out them being counted as murmuring in the camp. If we do not do it this way they will leak out, in the wrong way, this is displeasing to the Lord, because it spreads doubt and unbelief, and usually comes out of a root of bitterness.

Psalm 42:6-8

Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts; all thy waves and thy floods have passed over me. Jehovah will command his loving-kindness by day: and by night his song shall be with me; and prayer to the God of my life.

Breaking down the symbolism.

You Scare Me!
Sometimes we see the cost of what it takes to go deeper with God and it scares us. But this Deborah From the East is the “WORD of the LORD” coming from the East (the place from where the sun rises) A new day of regeneration, and renewal. Or, you can say it this way, “The Word of the Lord is coming to you from the place of renewal it speaks of the New Day!” But, one can only get there by closing out their dark night “West” (where the sun goes down). It is one thing to come out of a trial. It is another thing to get that trial out of you, to rid your self of any lingering carcinogens that would poison you, leaving behind, only, the sweet-smelling sacrifice where all the crushed ingredients of the spices and incense of our faith and devotion are carefully measured out, and balanced into a fragrant perfume. The blending and aging process is the last part of making perfumes that are the most costly and long-lasting. This is our patience coming into its perfect work. James 1:4.

The Finished Product.

Going the distance is a process that lays up the dark night before God and travails in prayer for utter healing and resolve. Revisiting that agony from depth to depth when it is stirred up in reflective meditation and prayer. In the cries of the heart and the groanings of the spirit, one begins to pour out the battles they have gone through, after the war is over. I am convinced that this is the key to healing post traumatic stress disorder among those who have gone through traumas in their own lives. When these memories are stirred, and relived by unknown triggers, whether it is set off by the behavior of others, or sounds, or smells, we have the secret place of the Most High whereby we can abide in the shadow of the almighty, and unmask our most vulnerable selves for the healing and repair that we need from unfathomable traumas, that are sometimes not seen by the naked eye.

We can see how King David did just that in the book of Psalms. King David was a man after God’s own heart, he was also, a man of war; the treachery and horrors he suffered were poured out upon the pages of the book. So powerful, they were, that the groanings of David served a dual purpose in giving us the Messianic Prophecies of Christ and His crucifixion found in the song: Doe of The Morning in Psalm 22. Never underestimate the prophetic application of those things God has brought us through. Out of them we pray, travail, and prophesy, by proxy, to the spiritual parallels of those very things we have suffered and overcame. It could be on behalf of the Church,the nation, or many nations. To the extent we may never know on this side of heaven.

“My soul is downcast within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of the Jordan, to the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar.”

We need to finish well, this journey of faith from the depths of the Jorden [the descender] to the heights of Hormen. Out of that groan of the heart let the roar come! From that place we eventually will transfer from the cold northwest where the sun has gone down, in to the new day! We know sorrow endures for the night but joy comes in the morning!

God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. Genesis 1:5 This is God’s order for each new day. First comes the night. Only from this place can revival and renewal truly come.The bee doesn’t want to just give you food, she wants to show you the source, that place of un-ending supply! We have to go there to know how to get it. We have to get it, as the bee does, to prove that “it” is there. This is spreading the GOOD NEWS of the gospel by saying, “Not only do I know the food source, I’m wearing it! SEE!? My God is faithful. I am living proof!” AMEN!

Psalm 42:6-8

Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts; all thy waves and thy floods have passed over me. Jehovah will command his loving-kindness by day: and by night his song shall be with me; and prayer to the God of my life.

The idea is that one deep guttural groan, pulls upon another until it becomes a roar likened to a water spout that draws up from the waters below into a suspended flood above, and then is released. What goes up must come down. The cry of the heart, the groans of the spirit pulling up from the deep. Drawing up from the belly, depth, and purity of heart and spirit; kissed by God in an outpouring, and deluge, of vindications, and affirmations that you are justified in waiting for God’s promise towards you. This manifests in ministry reaching deeply in others who would ,otherwise, not be reached,

because one chose to go through their trials trusting God, telling their heart to not despair but to hope in God, as the Psalmist did. Going in and coming out by faith and then being vindicated that your trust in Him is valid.

Psalm 42:4-11 (New International Version, ©2010)

These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go to the house of God under the protection of the Mighty One with shouts of joy and praise among the festive throng.

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. My soul is downcast within me; (be truthful in self-examination) therefore I will remember you (nevertheless, God’s promise is what I lean on) from the land of the Jordan, to the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar, (from Jordan “the descender” the lowest place, to the highest snowy peak, even to the hidden hills …) I will remember my God is faithful.

Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life. I say to God my Rock “Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?” (He confesses his anguish as the cry of David’s heart pours out into a Messianic Prophecy Describing the agony of Christ) My bones suffer mortal agony as my foes taunt me, saying to me all day long, “Where is your God?” (David gets his bearings and reminds himself again of God’s faithfulness.) Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

This is truly the fulfillment of the scripture that says, Those who go out weeping, (nevertheless, still carrying seed to sow,planting their professions of faith while yet in tears) will return with songs of joy, bringing in the sheaves! You will enter into your reward and reap a harvest of renewal that will bring you into a new day where old heart aches are truly passed away, no longer darkening your countenance or clouding your perception of life.

  1. Deborah, thank you for sharing your experience, really is wonderful that both of you experienced the same thing- God is good, and certainly is our papa. Feel free to share this word with your friends. I believe the Deborah’s of God were named to be so, to be a blessing to the body, to be the Word in action as they live out their lives before others, and to display remarkable faith and wisdom. You are welcomed to check out my page on face book. You can connect with it from the link below. God bless!

    Hi! Something happened to me this week that I believe confirms the word above. I recently began attending a supernatural school of ministry one night a week. We worship before we begin the class and I like to go off to the far right to worship by myself rather than staying in the seats. This past week a woman came over to worship near the spot where I was worshipping. As I pressed into worship, I had a vision of myself being held by the arms like a child and swung around. I don’t remember ever being spun around in this way but I’ve been asking Holy Spirit for a revelation of God as my “Daddy”, so I hoped that this was indeed from Him. As worship ended, the woman who had come over to worship near me unknowingly sat down in my spot. When I came to sit down, she scooted over and although we had never met, she began to very excitedly tell me about what she had seen during worship. I questioned her to be sure I accurately understood what she was sharing because she had seen and experienced exactly what I had. This made me very happy because I knew that it was really from God. I then said to the woman, my name is Deborah…what is yours? Her name was also Deborah!! The lady next to us overheard our conversation and immediately said, “There something up with Deborah’s” and continued to tell us about her devotion that morning from Judges about Deborah.
