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!

Christians of Iran

A prophetic dream. Is Jeremiah 45:35-39 about to take place with Iran? First a little History.

Below we see how much Iran changed after the Islamic Revolution 1978-1979. Iran students once dressed very similar to westerners.

Remembering Iranian Christians.

According to Open Doors USA, there are 800,000 Christians of a population of 80,000,000, in Iran. For some reason Wikipedia shrinks that number down to 300,000 to 375, 000. I’m leaning towards Open Door’s estimate. However, asylum seekers may be shifting that number down. Especially, in light of the recent jailing of 100 Iranian Christians just days ago.

In November of 2018, I had a dream that I was walking through an open market place and kept seeing Iranian Christian families showing up as if from out of no where, scattered and integrated in the market place. It seemed as though populations outside of Iran were swelling with Iranian Christian Refugees. I saw many becoming small business vendors, in the food industry. They were just there. They set up shop. Markets and malls were swelling with refugee vendors at every turn. I wondered if this mall/ market place was in America, as well. Will President Trump change his mind about Iranian refugees? As of late asylum seekers have not been given the green flag to come here.

To Westerners the change in Iran took on less than civil overtones, forty years ago. Especially when a frenzied crowd (among thousands) upset the Ayatollah Komenie’s casket so violently, his body became exposed; as grief stricken on-lookers tore fragments of his burial cloth, to be kept as mementos, in the funeral procession in 1989 Teran, Iran.

For most of the American public, this was proof enough that the changes in Iran were leading the people backward, rather than forward, since the days of the Shah, before the Islamic Revolution. Many today may not realize that the Iranian people once dressed in similar fashions of the western culture. This was most evident in the 1970’s. The change was so radical that 2800 years of Persian history seemed to dissolve, if that’s possible, giving way to an Islamic Republic. The colorful Empire, began to became veiled in black.

From this side of the pond, it looks as though a people we had some commonality with, as far as fashion, and some culture, is long gone. We remember the Shah with a fair amount of likability, his beautiful wife even more. While his excessive life style was said to have contributed to the revolution, many Americans that remember the descendant of this long line of Monarchs, Reza Pahlavi, had a more positive view of him.

The Shah was forced out of Iran February 11th 1979 and died in Cairo, Egypt. He was still in exile at His death July 27th, 1980.

King Cyrus the famous and great Persian King of the bible (Isaiah 45:1-7) was an advocate for Israel who made it possible for their temple to be restored. King Cyrus was appointed by God to bring restoration to Israel. This ancient people seems to have gone into their own captivity. One that appears to have diminished their Persian identity. The Revolution involving many college students at the time, is being protested against, by them now. Iran appears in end times prophecy as written in:

Jeremiah 49:35-39

Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might.

And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come.

For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, even my fierce anger, saith the LORD; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them: And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the LORD. But it shall come to pass in the latter days, that I will bring again the captivity of Elam, saith the LORD The people of Elam,

scattered to the winds of the earth.

We may be ramping up towards that scenario, as sanctions by President Trump go into effect. Wouldn’t it be poetic that President Trump, who is paralleled with King Cyrus by many prophetic circles, returned the favor of Cyrus toward God’s persecuted church of Iran. To be a wall of refuge for believers from Iran, in crises.

Pray for Christians in Iran.

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.

Getting Out Staying Out

Axles and Drive-lines

Part I

We had parked our vehicle down town in a parking lot that charged us $10.00. When we went to retrieve it my husband and I discovered that heavy equipment operators had completely tore up the parking lot, while our Ford 4×4 all terrain vehicle was parked there. Some cars we saw were disabled and stuck in the dirt. Other vehicles were perfectly fine completely untouched. You could tell that the big equipment just went around the “untouched” vehicles. Those cars had been parked there forever, and were going no where any way. The active vehicles trying to get out were most effected by it all.

As we were granny gearing out of the lot in 4-wheel drive, I said, ” Lord how are we going to get out of this?” The Lord said, “Faith is what brought you here. Faith is the vehicle that will get you out.” I realized that the “vehicle” was equipped to do the job, if any there was. We kept going until we were out of the parking lot. As we drove out, I saw a young man on his knees in the dirt; he was hot and sweaty and trying to get out, but his drive line and axle was broken. He looked at me with despair in his eyes. I promised my self, “When we get out of this we’ll come back for him …”

It’s been years since I had the dream. The dream came true, in that we were called to come out of the city we were dwelling in, and thankfully, the warfare that went along with it. Our leaving was a HUGE leap of faith. We obeyed God into the unknown, and he was faithful all the way.

For a year after that we had prayed for the young man, and those he represented. I asked the Lord, “What is happening to them?” The Lord showed me that there was a “spirit of disparagement” working against this young man and those who were trying to move on an upward call of God on their lives. The root of disparagement is doubt and unbelief. First our faith begins to erode in trials like this, then goes our joy. Then our strength. These have lost their joy believing that God has done this thing to them. And they have despaired in it, and hopelessness has settled in.

When you are built up in your faith it is like an all terrain vehicle, it will drive you out of ruts and off the beaten path. In dreams your car often speaks of where you are going in your life. We can have a lot of ideas and dreams under the hood, but if our drive line and axle is broken those ideas and dreams will go no where. If we believe God, our works confirm it. Have you ever heard of the phrase, Actions speak louder than words?

What faith action do we take when despair is trying to settle in? We build up our faith by declaring to ourselves and those around us what God’s word says about our circumstances. This brings to us peace that passes understanding. The word of God comforts us, and in that comfort comes joy. Our enemy may try to sink us; but, what Satan has meant for evil, God will turn around for Good. In trusting the Lord during dire circumstances, we gain patience, and temperance, and increase in our faith.
You see, patience waits upon God to show himself faithful, when he does it makes us stronger for the next time around when our faith is tested. This is where patience has its perfect work. Don’t give way to despair and allow doubt to break you down! Disparagement is a spiritual paralysis that shows no mercy, and it is nothing short of demonic.

Philippians 4:1-8 (Amplified Bible)

Philippians 4

Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice!
Let all men know and perceive and recognize your unselfishness (your considerateness, your forbearing spirit). The Lord is near [He is coming soon].

Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.

And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].

… So we were crying out for this young man, and who he represented, in the Spirit; and the Lord showed me something:
I saw why God tells us over and over again to pray for one another, and to encourage one another.

As we prayed I began to see a vision of the scene in the dream. The scene changed and I could see the same young man, I saw in the dream. Again he was on his knees beside the car sunk into the dirt. But he wasn’t despairing any more. He was digging in the ground with great strength and determination, and I saw the Angel of the LORD and he was standing over the car, and he was waving a brilliant sword over the young man and the car.

And I heard God say to him,
” If you dig out enough room for it, I will restore what has been broken, and you will drive out of this.”
I realized if he didn’t take the effort by making room for the power-train to be worked on, then the car could never be fixed.
I saw that the presence of the Angel warred back oppressive forces that was making it (almost) impossible for the young man to function. It was as if he had been encased with a thick heavy darkness at times, and he couldn’t see to do anything. But I saw this Angel standing and it held back the darkness, where the young man could see, and work, and his strength and stamina returned to him, and he literally began to dig out room to work under the car.

It was like God was saying, if you do that, I will replace it, and it will be all that you need to get out of this sink hole you are in. Just do that.

I thought of the scripture that says, what ever your hand finds to do, do it with all of your might. What ever challenge comes up; work it! Focus on it, and God will provide whatever equipment you need to accomplish victory. Soon, over all, this vehicle is going to pull itself completely out of every rut and on to open highway! As long as the young man did not give up, but kept plugging along, this whole experience would bring him into another place, with better equipment to handle challenges as he moves toward the prize of the upward call of God.

I remembered the scripture in Mathew 13:44-
“..the kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field …”
So this is the Word of the Lord, “Don’t GIVE UP! See your enemy has lied to you, and blinded your eyes. But I am not going to leave you stranded here in this condition, I have interceded for you, I have stood in the gap, DIG! Seek me and you will find me. I will increase in you: faith, wisdom, understanding, vision. And the Lord said, “I will replace in you a new and better power-train then you have ever had before”.

I thought of the scripture in Hebrews 11:6 that says-
Those who come to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him. When we go to him searching for answers, we are saying, ” I believe that you ARE God. When we do this diligently, we are saying, “I know that you are faithful and true and because of that I am not going to be satisfied with my circumstances, until I am living in the promises of God.”

This search taps us into the vision where we see what God has in mind for us. It is our own search and it builds up our faith, we begin to see His plan unfold in our lives. But first the old strongholds need to be broken down and cleared out, so that we do not continue to implement man made doctrines and ideologies in God’s work. We stop doubting God’s integrity and embrace the fact that He is true to His word. In the upheaval of Him plucking up to replant we ride through it in faith, to move on to higher levels. How much the enemy would love to get us stuck in a mindset contrary to the truth of God’s word, and what he wants in our lives.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29:11

The work of the prophets is to do just that, and we need that work continuously in our own life.
John the Baptist did just that in the Spirit of Elijah, and the Spirit of Elijah in the prophets of God must not ever be shut down for that anointing is what turns the heart of the fathers towards their children, and the hearts of the children towards their father. It makes straight the paths of the Lord, for repentance, renewal, reform, and finally one day, the millennial reign of Christ .

Jeremiah 1:10
See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.” The torn up Parking Lot is an upheaval that speaks of that day when God has given over to the destroyer, the things that our dead. That take up good ground, DEAD WORKS. If we are firmly planted in them, it can completely turn our world upside down. A functional power-train is what we need to overcome many things; broken dreams, broken lives, loss of vision, despair, discouragement, it speaks to all of us in different aspects of our lives; places that we have parked ourselves in, and have not moved on. However if GOd’s people persevere, they will see His faithfulness, He so much wants to show them.
James 1:1-5 (The Message)

James 1

The double minded man is unstable in all his ways…

Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.
If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believing, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open.

The Message (MSG)Copyright ©

A new drive-line, I saw this thing God gave to the young man and it was like Gold. He said buy of me Gold tried by fire. It will last. A work that will remain, and stand in judgment in the last day. If you have gone so far to be broken in faith and left in despair, to the point that you’re not even moving around like you use to in your Christian life; don’t give up on the Pearl of Great Price! SEEK and ye shall Find. DIG! It’s time for renewal, it’s time for upgraded equipment, the things that are not working for you anymore, never really belonged. Your life is about to change in a substantial way. Not end!

In The Paradox of Realms

Power-Train
Broken Axles and Drive-lines
Part II

Isaiah 61:1-5 (New International Version)

Isaiah 61
The Year of the LORD’s Favor The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, [a]

to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, a garment of praise, instead of a spirit of despair.

They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.

They will rebuild the ancient ruins
and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.

Should we not fervently pray for those who are less at ease than we are?

If you are in a place of *peace time be grateful, but remember, your brothers and sisters just like you, may be in a place of war. Some drafted, some enlisted. All of them need our fervent prayer. And this is the paradox of the spiritual realms. They may be sitting right next to you. Whats more, you may be experiencing peace in your life because of their front line operations, in the Spirit! If you do not understand the silent battle, nor see the rising smoke, nor hear the clamor of shield and sword, assume not that their condition is as your own. For even in our own continent we suffer spiritual realms as dark as the continent of Africa, as lawless as stormy seas, as merciless as the cold chains of Siberian prisons. And those who enter these realms whether in prayer, or on foot, need the walls of the Father’s House to surround them. And remember, when they come off the battlefield, do they not have soot on the brow? Dirt beneath the nail? Blood on the garment? Could they be war weary? As it is in the natural, so is it in the spirit, our soldiers need our support. Ground patrol needs, air patrol! But you have put the distance between them and yourself? Perhaps they smell of the sinner? But you have not discerned the source, or the difference, between the one rescued from the dank prison, and the one who has pulled them from it.

There are those who walk among them; who are not of them.
Jesus himself said,”I am in this world but not of it.

In the world of vanity that we live in, in the culture so biased on appearance. How much more so, should we who, as God’s people, look not at the outward man but the inward heart? And to know no man after the flesh, but to (intimately know them) by the Spirit. This is how so many thought to be wise, have erred so foolishly. This is how, the trained heart can instantly in season, and out, mobilize in God’s divine appointments; discerning the fruit because it is a spiritual observance, and not a natural one.
( Looking beyond those things relative to the four walls of the church, and referencing them against the vast Kingdom of God, and His Word.) This is the trained mind and spirit that has spiritual discernment, who can move into the “day of suddenlies”,
seamlessly …

Who is blind but my servant ..?
Isaiah 42:19-23 (The Message)
You’ve Seen a Lot, but Looked at Nothing

Pay attention! Are you deaf?
Open your eyes! Are you blind?
You’re my servant, and you’re not looking!
You’re my messenger, and you’re not listening!
The very people I depended upon, servants of God,
blind as a bat—willfully blind!
You’ve seen a lot, but looked at nothing.
You’ve heard everything, but listened to nothing.
God intended, out of the goodness of his heart,
to be lavish in his revelation.
But this is a people battered and cowed,
shut up in attics and closets,
Victims licking their wounds,
feeling ignored, abandoned.
But is anyone out there listening?
Is anyone paying attention to what’s coming?

Pray to the Lord of the Harvest …

We need those who discern by the Spirit of Wisdom, and not through the natural mind. Our church world, is full of natural plantings, working natural works, discerned by the natural mind, as being qualified; filling the “house” with the works of men! It is of those who abide in the Spirit flow, in God, outside the confines of our four walled churches, that will “move” into the living, breathing, fluid, and fluent army of God; like a river-
flooding out the battlefields of hellish plots, and reaching heights of Holy glory! Seeing those things that cannot be seen, and knowing those things that cannot be known, because revelation knowledge transcends them beyond the carnal mind. And lives are reached beyond the pews.

What Comes Next?


A Prophetic Dream

There are many ways we can describe the Lord Jesus. He is our Messiah, the Good Shepherd, Savior, and Prince of Peace. But in turn there are many ways He can describe us. The Body of Christ, Sheep of His Pasture, the Bride, even His Temple. For we are refered to as the Temple of the Holy Ghost. In this podcast is a reading and commentary on a dream where God speaks to His family using an eye opening name for His people, responsible for the end time harvest. We’ve got to know who we are, we’ve got to see what we have. Many are not going to be ready to be a part of this end-time harvest, though they have zeal. Remember, Jesus had to tell them to lift up their eyes to look and see that the harvest was ready. Because they were blinded by their scheduled events. When harvest normally is. How can we learn to walk in, what comes next? Don’t miss this prophetic podcast with Deana Barnes, that has already had an impact at Remnant Nation Radio.

The Kavanaugh Effect

Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek the Lord while He may be found. Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.

The Kavanaugh Effect.

The Kavanaugh effect is the rising concern among professionals pursuing careers, that past behaviors will come back to haunt them, whether real or exaggerated. What does the bible tell us that we can do about our past? Join Deana today while she shares insight on the Kavanaugh effect, a warning in regard to our elections, and testimony of God’s faithfulness to His prophetic word.

 

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.

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.

 

For The Sake Of Fruitfulness

purple-grapes-vineyard-napa-valley-napa-vineyard-39351.jpegA few days ago I was pruning back the over growth of our grape vines. So many really good looking runs had to go. Reminding me  of the careful, loving hands of  God, that prunes us back for reasons of fruitfulness, and viability.  To save our lives, and to ensure kingdom productivity. This means He does everything in His  power to finish the good work that he has begun in us, as the author and finisher of our faith. From the faithful son to the prodigal. His goal is to bring us home, that we can abide with Him, in His House.

God the Father is the Lord of the harvest, and resides over this work of salvation being wrought in the earth. Him who desires that no man perish; but, that all will come into the knowledge of the son. At the time that I was pruning my grape vines, this article began to trend on my website. So I’m taking that as a sign it’s a word for the season.   – God bless.

For The Sake Of Fruitfulness

Recently, the Lord gave me a picture. I saw a tree, it was in great shape. A nice full tree with viable limbs and thick with foliage.

As I was observing this tree all of a sudden a branch grew out from one of the limbs, and as it grew I began to notice that it was a dead branch. Now how can a dead branch grow?

1.What is the destruction of the flesh?

2. What exactly are works of the flesh?

3. When does mercy end and judgment begins?

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.
