Cycling Root Systems, Stop!


Everyone knows in order to eliminate the weed problem we must make sure the soil is clear of weed roots. You can cut off the stem clear to the ground, but a root takes more effort than that to get rid of. That’s why it’s best to weed out weeds when they are in “seedling form”. Our heart is our own garden that we have power over. We may not have power over a lot of things in life, to fix or change. But we have sovereign power over this one thing. In so much that by our own free will we can surrender our lives to God, or we can choose not to. Whatever we choose we are still the keepers of this plot of real estate, that is a driving force of how we treat others and live our lives. A day will come when the one who loaned us this plot of real estate at the center of our being, will come for the dividends, of what we’ve done with the one thing we do have control over, in this world. Our heart, the core of our mind will and emotions. We will have to make an account. If we have never heard of the Gospel, God’s law is still written on the table of our hearts. Our conscience. No one can deny the fact that human beings bear the burden of conscience. Unless, they’ve become so reprobate, so seared, by going against it they no longer feel remorse for wrong doing.

 Romans 2:12-16.

For as many as sinned without Law will also perish without Law. And as many as have sinned within Law shall be judged through Law. For it is not the hearers of the Law who are just before God, but the doers of the Law will be justified. For when the nations, who do not have the Law, do by nature the things of the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law unto themselves; who show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and the thoughts between one another accusing or even excusing one another,  in a day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

So this real estate (I’m going to call a garden) is still our responsibility.  Once we’ve been introduced to the son of the land owner, and have been made acquainted with the terms of our agreements, titles, and covenants, we have more to be accountable for, because of what we now know. Because we have become acquainted with the Lord Jesus Christ. 

So out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks! From where all seeds sown into the hearts of others come. Out of our heart comes forth good or evil. This is why it is written you will KNOW them by their fruit. A thistle garden, or a vegetable garden, or a lot of mixture, the evidence is produce. That produce is what we allowed to grow and develope in our heart good or evil. What plantings we allowed that came through by the power of the tongue. We are the gate keeper of our own personal real estate. Let’s talk about bitter roots, they produce bitter fruit! Bitter fruit produce seed, those seeds plant where no plant like it has ever grown. They don’t care. Where there is a “HEART” in hearing range there is soil for that seed. That’s why, little children, be careful for what you hear. Now this is where it gets interesting. Seed can land, but depending on the “conditioning”  of the soil that landing will not necessarily prosper. You see preconditioning is the same as preparing or “training” the ground to receive good seed. That it will properly grow. Otherwise you would call that ground poor soil. It’s about whether or not good seed will flourish, not about weeds. Weeds grow no matter what. All you can do is tend to the garden of your heart to make sure those weeds will not have a chance to grow by weeding them out. This is where prayer and meditation comes in, this is where intent steps up. Where due diligence has its place.  We are solely responsible for the fruit we bear, and the seeds we sow in the ground of others. What we cut loose from what is in the abundance of our heart! We are either replenishing the earth or defiling it by what comes out of our mouths, life and death are in the power of the tongue and you shall eat the fruit there of!

Mathew 12:35

A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

Mathew 15:19

For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.  All of these are the response of what we’ve allowed to grow and multiply in the garden of our heart. Defining the core of what we’ve become. The message translation says it well:

Hebrews 12

Keep a sharp eye out for weeds of bitter discontent. A thistle or two gone to seed can ruin a whole garden in no time. Watch out for the Esau syndrome: trading away God’s lifelong gift in order to satisfy a short-term appetite. You will know how Esau later regretted that impulsive act and wanted God’s blessing—but by then it was too late… 

   

We see from this passage when careless, thoughtless, words are cut loose into the air they carry a defilement into the garden they land in, where there was once no seed yet planted, now another wave of depositing ”new seed” ensures bitter disregard for Gods word, to defile the garden of potential for the next generation. “Where by many are defiled…”  Roots of bitterness (left unchallenged) grow to reproduce themselves to thrive beyond the previous generation. The girth of its own mass leaves the ground it lives in unproductive, un forth giving, (which, ultimately, is what unforgiveness means.) If the cycle isn’t stopped it is then forever reproducing its kind. A living monument to the past from where it came. What feeds it, what energy draws it in? Think about it! What feeds a bitter root? Rehearsing past offenses, and this in turn recruits more individuals to be offended by the deeds of the past. Rehashing former grudges. No atonement no matter what the cost is ever enough for the bitter heart. No effort for an amendment, satisfies an unforgiving heart. No matter how earnest an apology,  no matter what the effort to reconcile.

Proverbs 18:19 -21

… a brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle. A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

”The offspring of a root of bitterness defiles many”.  Not all but many. Because the household of God is (or should be) trained to over come bitter seeds that have been sowed. There is a mentality, a thought life, (as a man thinks so he is) that pre-conditions us to harbor bitterness. Cycles of failure in certain areas begin to replay in people’s lives. Generations of people have “inherited”  certain failures that repeat themselves over and over again. Certain mindsets that lock them into patterns and cycles. Poverty, alcoholism, drug use, sexual sins, fatherlessness, divorce, premature death, suicide, incarcerations, criminality, rebellion, business failure, and the list goes on. Could generational failure to thrive be due to bitter root systems, from generations past? Yes! We see these generational root systems have a similar outlook on life, a certain way they view difficulty, a pattern of how problems are approached, handled, or mishandled. Most of the time it’s a refusal to consider personal responsibility, and the lack of accountability of others be for us. That result in cycles of failure and disappointment. Many whose hearts have had no conditioning for good seed, have rejected the love of God, that can come into the soil of our heart and change us. Consequently, are children then bear in their own lives the chains of the past that weigh them down, carrying on burdens not their own, because the burden bearer was rejected. No training could be given, the burden bearer is refused. Jesus said, ”Learn of me.” Coping with life well is a learned skill, that’s why the Bible says TRAIN a child in the way that he is to go and when he is old he will not depart from it. Parents are the key to raising children free and clear of bitter root systems. 

 Matt 11:28-30

Come to me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke on you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest to your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Let us reserve ground for the seeds of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, meekness, long suffering, and self control.  God honors his word, he watches over his promises to perform them! Even the principles he has set have enough life in them for humanity to thrive on with out even acknowledging Him, just for wisdom sake! Based on following the law written in their hearts.  If nothing else the law of attraction, and the law of reciprocity, flowers in what the Bible describes as reaping what we sow.  Those that tolerate bitter root systems are plagued with undeveloped potential.  Unrealized strides in achievement, because the profile of our object of disdain, is transposed over every opportunity that comes our way, and we often react to people according to the strongholds of wrong thinking, and preconceived notions, bound up in the rhetoric of words, spawned from the weed garden of bitterness. Whole families, people groups, and nations, can struggle with a common darkness that ruins potential, and locks them into cycles of degeneration, moral failure, and social decay. (As a man thinks so he is.) We see the root of bitterness manifest into murder, jealousy, and sexual sin, in stories of the Bible. We see how a family and the nation of Israel was effected by David’s sin with Bathsheba and the consequential murder of her husband, all rooted out of the bitter experience David had with a wife promised to him, by Saul, named Merab, 1 Samual 18, given to another; and then his bitter experience with Michal. Who ridiculed him for the one thing that was the closest most sacred thing to him, his free exuberant worship of God. These to experiences early on in his development into manhood no doubt was a challenge for David, and the Love of a woman. Finding more companionship in friendship that he found to be quote: “that above women” with Jonathan, Saul’s son. We see no more romantic escapades or excitement with David after Michal. After the disappointment with Merab and Michal, David began to collect wives, as conquests, that would only produce one son each, before another wife was collected to him. Seemingly, true love somehow escaped a man who was truly loved by so many. David’s wound of a promise not kept, and being ridiculed and rejected rather than being loved and admired, gave seed to bitterness that manifested in sexual sins, not only in David’s life, but in the life of his children. Beginning with a sexual assault, after his trouble with Bathsheba, when his son Amnon  violated his half sister, Absolom’s full sister, Tamara. This rape went unpunished by David that occurred in his family, and the blight of bitterness, exploded into Absolom’s revenge, culminating into an insurrection and death of his own two sons, Amnon and Absolom. Not to mention the whole nation of Israel (lead by his son Solomon) worshiping idols because his many wives turned him from God in their idolatry. This is a story that clearly defines the damage and destruction of generational root systems. 

 Deuteronomy 5:29

If only they had such a heart to fear Me and keep all My commandments always, so that it might be well with them and their children forever.“

Would that we would learn the lessons of the Bible to stop the cycles and mindsets that harbor bitter root systems, deep in the human psyche. To  know that we are free whom Christ has made free, and to not entangle ourselves up again in the yolk of bonadage, is a valuable warning that requires determination. To know also that forgiveness of other’s wrongs are imperative to our salvation because we cannot harbor unforgiveness and then expect to be forgiven. To think we have a right to do so is absurd.

The parable of debtor’s prison speaks of a debtor being forgiven of his debts, by a ruler; but, then turns around and beats and jails those indebted to him. The ruler finds out, beats him, jails him, and throws away the key. It’s a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. A person, a people, a nation, or movement, that practices such hypocrisy has to answer to Him.

To not forgive, when attonement has been made, is passing judgment on another that pretty much says, ”I’m with out error, or fault, and my judgment is higher than God’s, who does forgive, therefore I am qualified to retain and suspend you from favor you don’t deserve.” God says no man is qualified to stand in such a position, what’s more they are inexcusable to do so. 

Romans: 2:1

Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.”

We see the pattern of King David’s movement through wives, from the succession of the births of his sons. Not until Bathsheba is this pattern ended. Where he seems to have found some resolve, after correction and judgment, following the Uriah and Bathsheba ordeal. Solomon was the oldest son among brothers and sisters, from one mother.

1 Chronicles 3:1-9

These are the sons of David who were born to him in Hebron: the firstborn, Amnon, by Ahinoam the Jezreelite; the second, Daniel, by Abigail the Carmelite, the third, Absalom, whose mother was Maacah, the daughter of Talmai, king of Geshur; the fourth, Adonijah, whose mother was Haggith; the fifth, Shephatiah, by Abital; the sixth, Ithream, by his wife Eglah; six were born to him in Hebron, pwhere he reigned for seven years and six months. And he reigned thirty-three years in Jerusalem. These were born to him in Jerusalem: Shimea, Shobab, Nathan and Solomon, four by Bath-shua, the daughter of Ammiel; then Ibhar, Elishama, Eliphelet, Nogah, Nepheg, Japhia, Elishama, Eliada, and Eliphelet, nine. All these were David’s sons, besides the sons of the concubines, and Tamar was their sister.

I found the following post on line that speaks of the psalms King David wrote after his sin with Bathsheba, and the murder of her husband. Use it as a tool to go into a deeper level of repentance   and renewal. I am not associated with the ministry, nor the ministry with me. But found it useful to go further on, from this point to the next level of ridding bitter root systems. http://www.jesuswalk.com/david/david-psalms-of-repentance.htm

Mindsets, Cycles, and Stumbling Blocks

God’s word should always have the final say in everything. That’s the banner we stand under as believers. No one can argue with that, right? Yet, our actions speak louder than words. How often do we drop out of the race? Just to re- enter, hit a rough patch, and drop out again? While the whole time still going to church, or worst yet STILL in MINISTRY! Ever learning, but never coming to the truth. Never truly reaching a maturity level, but in fact growing older in our immaturity.  Breaking Bad In Mindsets, Cycles, and Stumbling Blocks.

Birth Pangs And Passovers.

Birth pangs and passovers. How do we approach the days to come when we can see that life as we known it will never quite be the same? We do it one birth pang at.a time! That is all we can do. Step back and watch the theater come alive. Jesus is the rock, that will shatter the feet of iron and clay. No matter what goes up, in the end it’s all coming down! The kingdoms of this world will become the kingdoms of our God.

In The Spirit And Power Of The Mob

In Pursuit Of Perfect Love.  

Because perfect love casts out fear.

In The Spirit And PoweR of The mob. By Deana Barnes.

 Some seed fell upon good ground. Good fruit develops from a planting in good ground. This ground is described in Luke 8:15. 

The seed that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, KEEP it and bear fruit with patience.  

A noble and good heart is one who has responded to the drawing of the Holy Spirit. One who hungers and thirsts after righteousness. The Holy Spirit preps our heart to receive God’s word, and breaks up hard ground. His love and unmerited favor or GRACE, is like the sun and rain that nourishes what He has planted in it.  The Holy Spirit exposes stones, snags, and roots, in order to make room for the WORD so it can develop fruit and flourish. This work of GOD comes by invitation. Psalm 139:23-24   Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

The Father has drawn us to Him, but our lack of faith can be an inhibitor of growth. Many on their own decide how much truth they are willing to walk in. We can allow the traditions and philosophies of men to  take up ground and mingle like weeds in the garden of our understanding. This limits spiritual productivity and can even choke it out. By not applying the word of God in prayer and meditation, and rightly dividing the word of truth. Many gather together in a culture of compromise and reinforce it by doing so.  Among the weeds are circumstantial offences (like seeds) that grow into resentment. While the root is bitterness the fruit is often division, strife, and every evil work. Springing out when we neglect our time and intimacy with the Father, in prayer, and meditation on His word, and the examination of our own thoughts and motives. This is where we cast down those things that are in conflict with the nature of Christ in us. Otherwise, weed seeds grow and bitterness and resentment flourish. Generational root systems take their predominance, and eventually we are repeating history all over again. Have you ever seen root growth from the old stump of an otherwise dead fruit tree? It’s called a sucker plant and all it does is rob trees around it of nutrients from the soil. It’s a wild out of control sapling, and that’s what it looks like when we are not practicing self control. All our actions do in the condition of lacking self control, is rob us from growth and fruit development. It is no different than being tossed about on every wind of doctrine, both of these metaphors are the same, such a person as these are carried about, and influenced, by the Prince and Power of the air. Self control is the key to everything, second to love. 

Doing, the word. Being a doer of the word is not about hyper activity in good works, as much as it is doing all we can to cultivate and nurture, Christ in us the Hope and glory, and present Him to the world around us. His character, His anointing,  His authority, and power. In THAT, we are able to fulfill the great commission making disciples of all nations. Preaching the word with signs and wonders following those, that believe in His name.

Many in the church (because of what is being cultivated in the heart) have migrated over to activism, in order to have an impact on their community.

This is the power of the mob in the arm of the flesh, to change the world.

This was the same counter active spirit among the Jews that operated in Jesus day. They were looking for a political savior that would gather the sword, and defeat the Roman occupation of Jerusalem. Often Jesus had to address that spirit when it crept in among His disciples,  telling them, ”You know NOT what spirit you are of.”  This is true today, there are those among us who call themselves disciples of Christ that find commonality in the bitter roots of todays political climate. Because of that we can move in and out (of the influence) of the spirit and power of the air, based on what has residence in our heart and is leaving its residue on are garment! The garment that is suppose to be in the process of becoming spotless!  We’ve got to wake up to the witness of the Holy Spirit! What is growing inside of us?  Either a spirit of resentment and bitterness, enrolled into todays political atmosphere, that supports the arm of the flesh, or the Holy Ghost-anointing that graces the mandate of ambassadorship. Which melts off the mob mentality.

Just as John The Baptist asked (while in prison) are you the one or shall we look for another? Jesus told John’s disciples to go back and testify to him the works they saw Jesus do. Jesus was a healer. Not an activist. His kingdom was not of this world, and so neither is ours. He finished his message to John saying this: Blessed are they that are not offended in me! Blessed are they that do not take offence when His men and women are busy about the Father’s business of the Kingdom, rather than political activism, that often requires a bipolar mentality because these things change and shift with the currents of the wind. Our political opinion can find itself derailed because it’s based on the good behavior of fallen men and women. Who can be heroes for a season and zeros in another. Like I always say, no matter who you waltz with in politics, it will turn into a twist with Leviathan before the night is through. That is the nature of the beast.

Many laws meant to protect us by a good government, ensnares us in the hands of an evil regime. But the mandate of Christ has not changed for over 2000 years. The Jews of Jesus time didn’t know who they were looking for when they were looking for the Messiah. John did, He was the forerunner of Jesus in the spirit of Elijah. But, look at this, John was in prison, He knew of the works Jesus had done, but still John questioned him under the hardship of his imprisonment. Something many under that same mantle that John carried, will struggle with in perilous times.  The mantle that now goes before the coming of the Lord, in the spirit of Elijah, upon the Church. Many will become disillusioned in the same way. How can such destiny in us and among us, still not have impact against the evils of Herod today? The answer is not taking political control. The answer is the power that is in the Gospel of Jesus Christ to save, and the demonstration of it. That is the key, everything else we do to change our world beyond that is shifting sand. Whole cities change their political atmosphere when impacted by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  This is how we overcome the world.  As Jesus answered John, so that same answer should shake us out of the arena of political activism and re align us back to where our focus should be, as true disciples doing what Jesus did! 

Mathew 11:2-6

Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, and said to him, Are you he that should come, or do we look for another? Jesus answered and said to them, Go and show John again those things which you do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. Blessed is he that is not offended in me.

We are Christ manifested in the earth. The mandate remains the same. It is the only thing that will hasten His return to rule and reign. Blessed are they who are not offended in Him! Herod tolerated John, but his appitites and unholy agreements snared Harod into killing him. This is the same spirit of the age we are living in now. You cannot entertain it, you can not train it to work for you. It is in the nature of the beast to pursue power, above all else, and extinguish what will displace it. Remember, that same spirit went after Christ and killed all the children under 2 years of age in Bethlehem, jealously seeking out what one day will replace it.


Witnessing to All Nations

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and you shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved. If we are found doing what Jesus commissioned us to do .. not just talking about, not  just writing books about it, but actually doing it, than we have nothing to be ashamed of, in His appearing. In us He will find faith in the earth! Praise God, let it be so! Amen.

A Glimpse Across the Great Divide.

Dear reader as a servant and intercessor of the Lord Jesus Christ, I’m about to share with you a true encounter I had, in March of 2016. While it has taken me six months to grasp an understanding of what I have seen and heard. This is a large portion of that encounter but not all of it. If more is released for me to give, then I will add it here when appropriate. I am trying not to conjecture towards my own limited lens, regarding the millennial reign of Christ. Attempting only, to report what I heard and what I saw.

It was about nine in the morning and I was busy in my routine, I became very sleepy and sat in the arm chair in our living room to rest a moment, this is very unusual for me to do. I fell asleep. In my sleep I was awaken by the sound of a bird caught in the exhaust pipe above the stove range. When I stood up, I suddenly found my self walking through a small honey bee swarm, that buzzed in through my front door, with a ray of sun. After I gently swiped at the honey bees and got past them un-stung, I remember saying to myself, “Wow, the bees are back!”

I went to see how to get the bird out of the exhaust pipe above the exhaust hood, but when I got there the sound wasn’t coming from the exhaust pipe, so I turned around towards the sound of tin and flopping wings, and found two soft brown doves moving, and flapping about, in a very large pot that had been set on the table. They had knocked the pot to the floor, and I thought that must have been what woke me up. When I walked over to the pot I shewed them out. They didn’t seem too afraid of me, but flew off deep into the house, and then came back and darted out the open front door. I then realized this was how the bees must have come in.

As I stepped out the door I felt like the porch was in a much deeper shade than normal, the deck felt damp and the porch was closed with the overgrowth of a couple bushes that seemed to have tripled in size. A deck that catches the full morning sun now only had a sparse stream of light coming through it. I caught a glimpse of my pear tree over to the side of the house and it was in full bloom, this was why the bees were all over the place, I could here them buzzing around the blossoming trees. But the pear tree was noticeably bigger, wider, and fuller than what it really is, for all my fruit trees are juveniles and bear little or no fruit yet. I then noticed the shade came from the bushes and trees around the house that was advanced in age and size. Much age and much size. I walked out off the porch mesmerized by the change in the yard. How can this be? The sky was beautiful blue, the grass vibrant green. Children were playing in the pasture across what was once a road, in front of our house.

The defined tree line along the road was no more defined. The smaller evergreens in the pasture were now towering, it was a nice play area. Park like- rather than the pasture it is now. There were children playing there, two boys specifically were playing baseball with a bat and ball. They had casual clothes on t -shirts and jeans, they looked like they could belong to a family in our neighborhood as far as physical likeness, but that couple is older with no children of that age. I walked over to the side of the house and saw the fence and fence line gone in the back yard, there was a school bus painted mid-night blue over to the side of my property where the fence use to be, it appeared people lived in it. It seemed like a pleasant little place. Most amazing was the road in front of the house, it was almost completely overgrown, and was now a broken asphalt path. I began to understand that I was at my home years into the future.

I began to pray and acknowledge that I was in the future. My property, on the outer foothills of the blue ridge mountains, in North Carolina, is in a country setting. It seemed to feel like a village in a country setting, now in the time of this vision. I don’t believe I was visiting MY future, at all. But, the future of this place. As if I was a visitor of another time because of a conversation I was about to have. Looking around was a pleasant experience; it just felt relaxed, but I wondered why the county roads were not kept up. I wondered what happened that made everything around me seem even more “out in the country” than it was before, and then grow like a village at the same time. Life seemed so simple, and restful, there were no sense of restless striving.

A young male adult stood with others across, what use to be, a county road in front of our house. I asked the young man who was walking around with bigger children and young adults what year it was, sort of laughing because I knew that would be a funny question, he knew what I was asking but he had to think about how to tell me. He said, “Well, it’s about 25 years from your time.” I could see for some reason it wasn’t that easy of an answer. I later surmised it must have been hard to say, being that I was visiting from the previous age. Otherwise I have no other reason to believe I was in a new time.

I knew from the beginning I was not in heaven, nor was I in what would be my personal future, but I was visiting the area I live in now 25 years after my time. (The young adults exact words.)

I looked to another older young woman, (older than the youngsters in the group) and asked her if this was still America. Again, I felt a little embarrassed to ask what would be to them a bazaar question, but somehow they knew I didn’t belong in that age, and so they seemed to expect this of me. She smiled and for a loss of words said, “Well, sort of yea, but not really.” Later, I thought I should have asked if this was still the United States. My mind went to Jerusalem, at that point and I wondered what we were to them over there. So in this vision I may have believed I was in the 1000 year reign of Christ.

The earth felt like a near utopia, that doesn’t look, in this place, much different then it looks now. There is a very distinct difference in the *atmosphere, and that seemed to be the biggest change. I thought later, that would make sense, if we were in the millennium of rest. In the vision I began to believe that I was visiting the millennium 25 years after Christ’s return. After watching children play with a bat and ball that both appeared to be very old relics of the game, I walked into a new scene.

It felt like the same part of the country, I was in, but now I’m seeing more modern looking structures. When I say modern I mean newer. It was like a research center, and medical out patient center all at once. I had a feeling that extreme weather was no longer an issue when constructing these buildings, because they had an in door, out door, quality to them. I sensed that there were advanced technologies while basic living in some areas were even less modern then they are right now in my time. It never occurred to me a research center or medical facility would exist after Christ’s return.

But, when I read the bible more closely, after this experience, I don’t know why I had that notion. I’ll explain more later. I know now that much of who we are in Christ at present, will be in a full blown continuum, in the time when “We will know even as we are known.” If we continue in Christ. The seed will be of the fruit but much, much, more. In fact the fruit will be firmly attached to the vine. Yet, I was in the state of still seeing in part. I was in the state I am now. So this whole experience has been a struggle to understand more of those things I do not know.

There was a woman with a lab coat on; again, very pleasant, and the first to speak to me directly, before I spoke to her. She was another **young adult.

The technician was smiling and telling me what the center was doing, this is what she said: “We are getting rid of diseases in the earth. Many are gone now.” At the moment she said that I imagined that this was a process of the healing of the nations. As if disease, like flood waters were abating from the earth, and it would need professionals to be employed to help sweep it out forever. This is the first time I thought about the daily life of post tribulation living. Each morning there would be a work of restoration to tend to, for the post tribulation survivor and earth born. The three adults that I spoke to may have been teachers. None of the children seemed to notice me, or look directly at me. I did wonder about these young adults who were 25-35 years of age who would have been 0-10 When what happened to me occurred. If it was 1 Thessalonians 4:16 ?.. And the dead in Christ shall first rise, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up with the Lord … Were they caught up? They looked like the children and I, natural born. They didn’t appear to be different. No one did. However, the young adults did seem to be sort of shepherding these children.

For the first time ever, I began to grasp that daily living in the new time would not be extremely and abruptly altered in Christ’s return, among those who survived tribulation and would live on afterwards. In fact this caused me to look up Is 51:11 and I saw it in a new light. (Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; an everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain [reach for and acquire] gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away [SORROW SHALL FLEE AWAY]the Hebrew translation can read like this: grief/curses/vexations shall ABATE, VANISH, and/or FADE AWAY. So in the reign of Christ on earth, in their reaching for Him they shall find Him, the fruit of that intent will be for the picking, this will displace the other. Grief, sorrow, vexation, and curses, will in exchange, recede from them.

Like flood waters they abate away as in Noah’s day; as the nations that REACH for the fruit and harvest the leaves of the tree in their pilgrimage to ZIon. So they shall obtain the promise and provision of God, as we do now by faith. In obeying His instructing for blessings in the earth. A companion passage is Revelation 22:2 (and down the middle of the main street of the city. On either side of the river stood a tree of life, producing twelve kinds of fruit and yielding a fresh crop for each month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.

The young female with the lab coat on, then said, “You know, speech impediments and dyslexia are caused by a demon. “She said, “We cast them out to cure that problem.”

When she said that I was taken back. Always supposing demons or unclean spirits would go to the pit with Satan. But does the bible say that? When I looked into this I saw popular commentary assuming such a thing. But nothing is particularly said about that in cannon of scripture. However, in books most Protestants call companion books to canonized scripture, found among the dead seas scrolls, for example, even the book of Enoch that is actually quoted in scripture, there is great detail of what demons actually are and when their “time” is come. There is reason enough to believe it is after the great Judgment. I know that I could be trying to super impose this experience on my grasp of the end times. This experience is more real to me than my understanding of eschatology. Which has changed over the years, and is more of a frustration to me, having heard every view I think there is, and seeing the right and wrong of every one of them. Here I Am.

When the technician was speaking to me, I had a knowledge, or an awareness of an abode or dwelling that was far from any natural light radiating from where we were. It appeared to be upon the edge of things at a distance hardly visible and I’m not sure I saw it with my natural eyes. I saw it during the following encounter, that was what I would describe as a place of lesser light. A side note expelled away, that I had no time to explore.

What happened next is I saw a woman sitting in a chair, like a dental chair in this medical office, that was sort of inside and outside, (I felt nature very close to what we were doing.) The woman in the chair had a speech difficulty that centered from the language part of her brain. The woman in the medical coat told me it was a demon causing this, and asked if I would like to cast it out. I said sure, so I turned to the woman and said, “In the name of Jesus Christ the son of the living God I command you to come out of this woman and go where you know you’re suppose to go.”

When I said this a slight shadow transposed from her face and then lifted away. I saw in the spirit that outer place where this demon left to go. It felt as if each time this happened there were less of these in the world to deal with, among mankind. This spirit seemed to operate like a message scrambler on the frontal lobe of the brain where words and letters were stirred out of sequence. Everything was there that they wanted to say but not in an organized order to say it. I never had it so easy to get rid of an unclean spirit. Nor such a sense of it being vanquished. After that we were done and the lady was thankful, and then I was on my way.

I was back in my front yard and the young man I met at first, was among a group of people that were now standing, partly in my front yard. I looked over to say good bye to him, and began to go back into my house, the young man then called out to me kind of urgently, and said a word for me to know before I went back into the house. As if he knew I was going back to where I come from, and he wouldn’t see me again. As soon as he yelled out the word to me, from across the overgrown path, I wanted to say, “What is that?” But then I woke up in my arm chair back in my own time, which was still in the morning of March 2016.

He seemed to just say one long word, or a mashed up phrase, but when I woke up, I realized it was a play on three words mixed together. They were magnitude, megaton, (or magnetron) and the one that really stood out was Marduk. At that point I had no idea what the young man meant. Except I thought he may be trying to tell me about a cataclysmic event that would happen in my life time. But, I was relieved it didn’t seem to hurt this area that we lived in.

The lady that had an evil spirit cast out of her, must have been alive in my time. She was over 50. I puzzled over the words I heard for several days, asking the Lord for understanding. I looked up the word Marduk and really didn’t connect it to anything that seemed connected to my experience. Until a few weeks later in April, when my husband and I was listening to a you tube channel, explaining NASA’s recently mentioned Nibiru acknowledgment, that was in the news in January. The heavenly body was named by another name that I had never heard before. This reputable Christian broadcaster and scientist called it the Marduk Star. A heavenly body that passed earth about every few thousand years. Marduk is mentioned on a Wikipedia search when searching Nibiru.

Disease and the millennium

Would disease not be immediately banished in the millennium at the return of Christ? As you can see I think I was in the millennium. According to this view of the future, as it seems, it is not. But in due process. Healing for the nations is issued from the city of God according to the book of Revelation. Healing was in the leaves. If the nation’s were already instantly healed, we would not need the TREE FOR THE HEALING OF THE NATIONS. Jerusalem will be the hub for TEACHING PEACE and honoring CHRIST; rewards of PROSPERITY AND HEALTH WILL COME TO THOSE NATIONS that honor Christ. Will that manifest in natural medicines and medical knowledge right down to removing unclean spirits, case by case in this instance? Is there scripture that opposes that?

In Conclusion

The beast and false prophet are thrown into the pit, and Satan is bound for a thousand years. But what about evil spirits? Is God leaving that to the earth dwellers? Would it be like it was after WW II where those charged with war crimes were rounded up and convicted, some evading capture even for 50 years? While the top ranking officials were captured, sentenced, and jailed, even executed.

I saw that in 25 years, after my time, the place where I live right now changed very little. The houses and trees were untouched, vegetation was left to grow- on the other hand the pear tree had been under careful husbandry. As if it was an essential part of someone’s food source. There seemed to be no new construction, It was a countrified utopia. The children playing appeared to be related to the folks who live in the area. The boys playing ball were around the age of 9 and 10. Again I was told 25 years from my time. So, my time now, in the era of HIS return, ends at an unknown time. But seemingly soon, as pear trees have a 25 to 35 year life span, and these trees are about four years old now. Even though in the new age trees may live longer, I had a sense of being about 25 to 35 years in the future. ” 25 years from your time.” What does that mean? The house and growth around it looked 25-40 years.

Other than the growth of vegetation, the overgrown road, and the missing picket fence, time appears to stand still. Dress is not unusual, but an awareness of a new “time” is. But then this is only 25 years from wars and tribulation, right? Compared to 975 years yet to develop. If I was in the millennium. When I was taken to see some things at the medical/ research center it was very much modern. But not outlandishly techy. The architecture and landscape seemed fused. The medical technician had a test tube/ or something that was common to see in the hand of a medical researcher.

I know it was based on a progressive path, certainly, casting out unclean spirits was a part of that, which sort of blew my mind. In fact this whole experience came out of no where, and is based on nothing that I have been reading about or experiencing. The only thing that could have triggered anything is asking God if it was good that so many have followed us here, where the foothills begin at the blue ridge mountains, Moravian Falls just 45 minutes away.

Everyone is going to have to be settled in their own heart and mind where they are to be right now living in America. Personally, when we wanted to move to the Oregon coast 30 + years ago, I was given a series of dreams revealing why not to live on the west coast, why not to live on the border of Mexico, and why not to live where my husband and I were born and raised. We were sent to the East Coast on a prayer mandate in 2004, and then God told us to leave Wilmington NC., in 2008 after a dream that revealed the economic crash, and possibly a violent tsunami that surges 8-10 feet in land. The Spirit of God gave us 4 days to leave the city where we had a good job and our adult children. After a year of traveling the Lord relocated us to where we are right now. Family from the East and West have relocated to be here with us now, and this was a God thing 1000 percent.

But, before that we were sent to the Smokey Mountains, for 10 weeks of fastings and prayer, for our next prayer assignment. That is what landed us here, after one year, in a beautiful act of restoration after years of loss, for the gospel’s sake. Our two children heeded the warning to move away from the coast. I’m not one to focus about the end times and eschatology. I’m a teacher on healing, at heart. But, I have to steward the dreams and visions I’m given. I believe we have the call of God to change the tide- that we are not sinking as the Body of Christ but arising. Come what may we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. This is not doomsday for the child of God. But, the most powerful and awesome days to be alive.

I know we live where we live because God put us here. In the vicinity of the Moravians in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. If this encounter is the kind of an encounter that I’m personally sure it is, then I’m seeing the posterity of our neighbors will continue to thrive here. Yet, the house felt to be known as ours. Is it too incredible to believe?

The way this has changed me is that it causes me to realize the reign of Christ on earth is a transition of a dispensation where in some ways, in some places, the planet rebounds where it is left off, seemingly undisturbed. What suffering entails (here) may be political, economical, or psychological but the land, houses, and trees were undisturbed, in this place.

More telling, nothing harvested for warmth. Yet in the early 1980’s I saw sand dunes in-land way off shore at the border of VA and NC, where trailers were erected, not unlike those used by victims of hurricane Katrina. They were for detention, by the way. But the sand was what was surprising, so far in land along the coast. I saw this after the great evacuation, that took place on the west coast that went so far in land that people had taken off to the mountains of Idaho.

A few years later, in another dream, I saw the evidence of war manifesting as fiery plumes beyond the horizon, three clouds puffed up and then turned into black horsemen that ran across America. From the North West to the South East, could the three be economic woes because of wars? World War III being the 3rd?

Later, in the 80’s it appeared that I was standing in an area that had been evacuated, as if there to see what would happen next. Suddenly, I saw a pin point of fire blaze high up in the sky. I realized it was a rocket. It was flying from the west arcing south eastward. I was in rural central Idaho. A few minutes later the area was hit by a thermal wind, and fence posts edges, the driest of weeds, and house corners, combusted into flames. In another dream, a time later, I was standing on a road in the same place. Suddenly, a black horse busted out of the small bluff or ravine behind me where the home of the family who lived there had a name who’s escotology of names means messenger and/horse. It galloped over my head toward the same place the missile had gone.

Now being moved to this part of the country, those kind of dreams have ended, that involved living in places that were being evacuated, with a military presence; bombers flying down the pacific coast, and missal strikes; relocation and evacuation centers that once some are netted into, would become permanently detained. But these dreams ended when the Lord called us out of the Northwest. That journey began with a visitation from the Lord in 1997 showing me the last city we would live in, in the western part of the United States.

*In the book of Enoch demons and unclean spirits are not Fallen Angels, Fallen Angels are Fallen Angels. It seems that demons are the offspring of those beings born of women when fallen angels had intercourse with them. Genisis 6. Since this experience many items in the dream have been confirmed to me. One was that the exhaust pipe above the stove, there was only a hood and charcoal filter. I couldn’t understand why I thought a bird had gotten into the exhaust pipe when we didn’t even have one. But just one year later an update in our kitchen included an exhaust pipe, and I or the dream I had was not the reason it was installed. But a set of circumstances made it the logical thing to do in order to upgrade. There were other things as well, including the large pot the birds were in that I will write about one day. But this one: meeting people that bore a resemblance to some of the children I saw in the dream, was the most amazing- light skin hispanic children with auborn hair. This is some what unusual but later the older couple we knew of down the street had their little grandchildren over. They were going for a walk they were light skin hispanic, with auborn hair. Could these chilren grow up to be the parents of the children I saw 25 years after my time?

*Update: I saw our half acre of picket fence was gone, in the dream. The last 3 years of extreme weather made it necessary to begin tearing it down. After being on the property for 20 years.  In the dream the only vehicle I saw was a midnight blue converted school bus parked on our property line where the fence once stood. The bus was well taken care of and still used as a dwelling.

Fight This Noble War!

1 Timothy 1:18 This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before you, that you by them might war a good warfare.

The words spoken by the Spirit of God, over our lives, are weapons of war to fight the good fight of faith. They put in check the devil’s lies, and activate creation to align with the purposes of God. Remember prophetic words that speak into your destiny and declare them! That’s how we handle the Word of Life! Does a warrior lay his sword and armor down on a shelf, in days of battle? The answer is no. Therefore do not, and I repeat do not take prophecy (spoken over you) and put it on the shelf. As it has been taught in charismatic circles. Scripture says judge it. Out of the mouth of two or more witnesses let every word be established. Take it and wait on the Lord until He confirms it, or denies it. Let the other prophets (elders) stand and judge. Remember, a good tree bears forth good fruit, so consider the source. Knowing your prophet and being in relationship with prophetic people creates an atmosphere of proper prophetic processes. Why? Because where ever the Body Of Christ is functioning like it is suppose to, the full counsel of God is present. This is why these giftings often operate in companies of like minded anointings. For iron sharpens iron. Among such company words of prophecy will most certainly be clarified and quickly approved and activated. In the multitude of counsel our way is established. This is Kingdom. For He has set in the CHURCH apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers. Ephesians ch 4. If they are not present among us than we are an incomplete body. We are just an assembly of stragglers, even if that assembly has assembled for years. The testimony of Jesus Christ is the spirit of prophecy, and to mishandle this gifting among the church of God is to mishandle the Word Of Life, for God breathed revelation testifies to the Son. It is time to throw out false teaching regarding the gifts of the spirit, especially when it comes to prophecy. We need them in our arsenal. The bible says, “Quench not the Holy Spirit. Despise not prophecy, prove all things, hold fast to that which is good.” 1 Thes 5:19-21 so there you go! Be the body do it right! Remember God breathed utterances and by them fight this noble war!

The Python Resistance

Podcast: The Python Resistance.

The Python Resistance is an act of warfare (in the spirit realm) that targets apostolic moves of God, or new beginnings. From church government, to street outreach, or bible study, this operative is stirred up at start up. Listen to- The Python Resistance and get all the down load on this teaching that will help you recognize if that satanic work is undermining what you are being called to do, in your own life. – Deana Barnes 

The Connector Anointing

The Body of Christ has elbows and knees just like any body would have. They are the joints that connect the body, that mobilize the seperate parts they are connected too. When a connector anointing joins two different functions together in the Body of  Christ, they themselves, enter into that function’s heavenly reward, for being the (connecting tissue of a work) in the righteous acts of the saints. 

1 Corinthians 12:27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each of you are a member of it.

Beast System Appetite

Listen to “Beast System Appetites” A prophetic dream. While there are some serious points made, in this podcast, derived from real-life tragedy, the lessons learned are priceless that can lead to victorious outcomes. Esau gave up his birth right because he was hungry. Yet, he belonged to a family that had no want. Listen to this podcast by Deana Barnes that exposes how little it will take for people to sell out to the System of The Beast. Get ready!

Escaping Isolation

Remnant Nation Radio. A Podcast w/ Deana Barnes

This podcast identifies the culture of isolation in our society, and how western Christianity is the number one model to that effect. Deana shows the listener how far we have strayed from the true pattern of the church in reliance and accountability toward one another.  Many have followed in the footsteps of our culture, leading them into isolation in the midst of a crowd. Working in cubicles in a packed office, living in subdivisions or gated communities, but still not knowing our co-workers or neighbors; riding subways and elevators with the same people every day, yet we are strangers. Worst of all, going to church and sitting amidst a congregation in utter isolation. While pastors lost in a sea of human misery, burn out while they them-selves suffer apart from God’s pattern for the church, there is a model to return to, if only we would. Listen to this podcast to identify the biblical relationship between layman and leadership in ancient Christian text. How we can begin anew by ESCAPING the Culture of crowded ISOLATION in our society.

The Jezebel School Of Cosmetology

A podcast version of the article- The Ahab Jezebel Modus Operandi, with added commentary.

The Jezebel School of Cosmetology.  

Could it be that most of everything we’ve been taught about “The Jezebel Spirit” is incomplete? And is actually often twisted by the very same darkness that animates her works in the earth? Have books and sermons dedicated to teachings on Jezebel missed the whole point, time and time again? I suggest to you that many of them have, serving to create the same kind of atmosphere that Jezebel promoted (punishing obedience to God) that existed in her day. This operative is bigger than we understand, and is enabling a world movement, far beyond what we could have ever imagined. Many have said it is all about power with Jezebel, I say the word clearly shows us, it is much much more. In fact as there was a kingdom under her and Ahab’s oppression, so most of Christianity, needlessly, suffers the cause and effect of this demonic power. Listen to this podcast by Deana Barnes.

Hemmed With Pearls

Oh how the waster thought to come and destroy, how he sets up road blocks for pillage. But I have averted him says the Lord, I created the waster to destroy- covenant stays his hand.

Know that you are my Ambassador, my representative. As I have said, and I have given you to carry my name, and I have given you my name. This is the key of David. I am he that liveth and was dead. And behold I am alive for ever more. And I have the keys of death and of hell. Opening doors no man can shut, and shutting doors no man can open.
These signs will follow them that believe. In my name … And I have seen the mud slinging, land upon your garment, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness that you have continuously determined to put on. How the enemy despises purity. I wash away reproach, I will remove (what has been cast upon you) the stain of contempt- washed in washings and renewals.

This from the water of my word as you spend time in me. Does not glory rest upon the persecuted ones? Let my spirit renew your mind, says the Lord. In me you can walk in continuous joy, that the world doesn’t understand. This is that fruit, of the first fruit cluster. Love, joy, peace … That greets one another with a holy kiss in my kingdom. You will know them by their fruits in the face of adversity. For the shield of faith distances the approach of despair. Though it come, faith is its mighty foe! See the pearl of great price? In your garment I have sewn them in the hem and borders, many; to memorialize the sacrifice in preferring me, above all else … Oh look and see-  the Bride gives herself to all preperations!

Isaiah 54

Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith Jehovah.
Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thy habitations; spare not: lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes.

For thou shalt spread aboard on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall possess the nations, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth; and the reproach of thy widowhood shalt thou remember no more.

For thy Maker is thy husband; Jehovah of hosts is his name: and the Holy One of Israel is thy Redeemer; the God of the whole earth shall he be called.

For Jehovah hath called thee as a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, even a wife of youth, when she is cast off, saith thy God.

For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.

In overflowing wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting lovingkindness will I have mercy on thee, saith Jehovah thy Redeemer.

For this is as the waters of Noah unto me; for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah shall no more go over the earth, so have I sworn that I will not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.

For the mountains may depart, and the hills be removed; but my lovingkindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall my covenant of peace be removed, saith Jehovah that hath mercy on thee.

O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will set thy stones in fair colors, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.

And I will make thy pinnacles of rubies, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy border of precious stones.

And all thy children shall be taught of Jehovah; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression, for thou shalt not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near thee.

Behold, they may gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall because of thee.

Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the fire of coals, and bringeth forth a weapon for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of Jehovah, and their righteousness which is of me, saith Jehovah.

American Standard Version, 1901

Without Dissimulation.

1 Timothy 4:14-16

Neglect not the gift that is in you, which was given you by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. Meditate on these things; give yourself wholly to them; that your profiting may appear to all. Take heed to yourself, and to the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this you shall both save yourself, and them that hear you.

1 Timothy 1:18-19

This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on you, that you by them might war a good warfare; Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:

The Lord reminded me that among the body of believers in the earth, there are those committed to relationships. But not all committed to the purpose of why Jesus is calling His people to gather together. In fact, they honestly are not in understanding of it, and don’t have revelation beyond seeing meetings as opportunities for ministry, worship, and prayer. An outlet for them to give and receive. This is never going to change, until, somehow, purpose is instilled in them. When people understand the purpose of God for what they are doing, focus and commitment naturally follow. Nothing we do should be performance driven. But, purpose driven. Even people who have based their life on teaching this concept have become performance driven. It’s that easy of a trap to fall into. It happens when we lack vision. With out a vision the people perish, they perish in purposeless living. With out a vision they cast off restraint. They become listless like a ship with broken sails, blown about with every wind of opinion, pushing against them.

Because of that Churches become entertainment centers with an activities director, keeping people interested, preoccupied with making everyone happy. Rather than building relationships focused on obeying the will of the Father. 

When God’s people lock in on revelation that they are with each other (where they are) for a reason – then comes single mindedness to the purpose. A unified understanding of what God is doing, and what our part in it is. In that comes focus that produces commitment. Commitment to purpose sees what is clutter. We are lively stones that God wants to cut, polish, and fit into place, for His purpose. People that allow long gaps to go by with out fellowship and assembly with one another, have other commitments. Right our wrong this is just the way it is. While we all have our lives that we are living, the sense of divine purpose brings the order of God, into it. What is clutter to our own households, in how we live, and what we do, determines destinies.

Contending For Purpose

If destiny cannot be thwarted or derailed, than Paul would have never had to admonish Timothy with the scripture of 1 Timothy 1:18-19 and 1Timothy 4:14-16 – (Don’t neglect your gift. Weaponize prophecy that was prophesied over you. By it do warfare!) This is how we are to engage the enemy that resists the purpose of God in our lives. Despite what we’ve been told most prophecy is conditional to our own commitment to realize its fulfillment. Many saints have desired prophecies (spoken over them in their lives) to come to pass, but have never engaged them as a tool to contend for the will of God in their lives. Also, for lack of knowledge and understanding many have been stubborn about how they believed they should come to pass. When we do warfare in the language of the prophecy we speak according to the will of the Father. When we suppose we know how God is going to bring it to pass we put our self in places and situations we don’t belong. Many that have fulfilled prophetic words spoken over their life, (my self included) have said this, “It didn’t happen as I supposed it would. Yet, God was faithful.” How is it done? If we walk in the Spirit’ we will not fulfill the lust of our flesh. Having no agenda but love. Embracing the fact we may not comprehend all that God is doing, nor have we obtained yet all the promise, but still we press on with Paul’s words in mind…

Php. 3:12-16

I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth to those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing you be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this to you. Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

 Being Genuine 

Romans 12:9 

Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

Mockery is a very strong and evil spirit that can take hold of people’s lives, and conversation. The spirit of dissimulation, is rampant in our world today. This is the definition.

DISSIMULATION, n. L., to make like; The act of dissembling; to hide under a false appearance; to feign or make false pretense; Dissimulation may also be simply the concealment of opinions, or sentiments of purpose; but it includes also the assuming of a false or counterfeit appearance, which conceals the real opinions or purpose of ones words or actions. Hypocrisy.

In other words, let not our love be fake. Do what we can to really love, be honest. Be real. Don’t play along if you don’t understand. Present your point in earnest desire to build a bridge not a wall. If our prayer life is real with God like this, we can open up to others, as well. When we go to Him and say what we feel, even knowing it probably isn’t right, at least we give Him something to work with. Fear of others breeds dishonesty, it will be the first thing God empties out of us, when we earnestly come to him for deliverance from a spirit of dissimulation. It may take a process, but if we commit ourselves to being genuine with people, we will find many spots and wrinkles being removed from our garment, out of obedience to Paul’s admonition on love.

Fire Wall, Healing And Securing Divine Health

imageMy hope is that if you are a believer in the healing power of God, this article will encourage you and reinforce what you already know. That is, that Jesus settled the healing question by the work of the cross. If you debate that truth, don’t bother with me. I’m ruined, you can’t help me. There is nothing you can say or do to change my mind. We’ve seen it, heard it, and have handled it with our own two hands, the Word of Life. We have set our stakes in the promise land of healing. We have had our Jericho and our AI’s we’ve learned our lessons of faith, endurance, and trust. Our mandate has been go, drive out the inhabitants of the land, displace them, and take possession of that which belongs to the Child of God. For it is the children’s bread! The one who sits at the table of the Father.  We take Luke 10:19 literally, “I have given you authority to tread upon scorpions and serpents and over all the power of the enemy, nothing by any means shall harm you.” And the last part of that scripture, that says rejoice not that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice rather, that your names our written in the Lambs book of Life. Our testimony to the Fire Wall of God!

A Greater Work

There is this thing about prophetic scribing that is amazing to me, it has an element of timelessness. I was some where in my blog today. I don’t even know where. These two numbers came up and I thought of tomorrow’s date. Because it was. It was tomorrow’s date but of scripture. You’ll figure out the date I’m talking about in the text. But, I’m not wanting to date anything at the moment, because sometimes dating a scribal work can be distracting.

But any way, I read the two or three paragraphs and the Lord prompts me. He prompts me to repost it for today, tomorrow, and beyond for who ever needs it. It was a few paragraphs from an article that I landed on today doing some maintenance work on my website, and after the Lords urging, and the copy and paste, I lost it! But that’s fine I’m sure you or I can do some detective work and find it somewhere on the website. But, right now I’m wanting to release this word. Once again for another prophetic cycle- God is good. In Christ, and with love here we go!

But, many of my servants of late have said, “ Lord my budget is not being made!” If I am faithful and my servant falls short, time after time, than who is at fault? Will I not always provide for my own? If this is so than what endeavors have you taken on that I support not? If they are not supported, are they of mine, says the Lord? Has the world you are living in remained the same, that it is not due for adjustments? I have adjusted, I have led, I have appointed, says the Lord, have you followed?

Therefore, this is why many will only reflect upon my glory as a thing of the past, rather than a realty of the present. Where fanfare upon their arrival has been the order of the day, but the power will wane in time. Budget, conditions, and facility, has been the determiner of an acceptable path, rather than the perfect way.

For that way- I have not immediately disclosed the treasures of my kingdom found there, to glean from among you the glitter fly. For men and women are my treasures, and gold is still found in the mouth of the catch of the day, to pay your obligations. Be fishers of men, and I will show you the hidden pools. They are not found city to city, but from stream to stream, says the Lord.

Gal 5:16

I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another …

A time will come when those who walk after the Spirit, will find themselves fishing from the streams of the desert, where Jackals still roam, says the Lord, in the minds of those I’ve called them to. To set a captive free while yet in captivity. These open doors, and pathways, will be for the wise not fools. The hidden will be made known to their brethren, and they shall return with a countenance of joy and reflections of my glory upon them. Seek the Ancient Path.

Seek the ancient paths.
