An easy listening podcast, Ruling The Inner Man. https://youtu.be/2w4DferessU
Living a victorious life in Christ requires us to know Jesus and who we are in Him. The next step is ruling our own spirit.
Leaning into the lion’s mane-
As I sit in my chair I closed my eyes and rested my head to the side and I see a vision in my minds eye of me resting my head on a lion. I am sitting in a beautiful oak forest on a cliff ledge, overlooking a valley surrounded by mountains with a river running thru the middle dividing it. It is autumn. The leaves in oak trees have turned into their autumn colors. Everything is a beautiful golden hue and it is dusk. I look at this majestic lion and he smiles at me with pride. As a father would smile at his child. I look back out over the valley and suddenly I notice I am standing in glorious shining armor. I look and see a sword in my right hand and shield in my left. Suddenly I am aware of my importance. I have been given an assignment. I hear the lion lovingly say in his calm kind voice “Beloved, you are fully equipped.” His low voice is so soft and firm it sounds like a rushing wind. Suddenly an army of soldiers in silver armor appear around me some on horse back and some on foot. They are surrounded by a misty fog. It’s probably early morning. They are all carring spears but I am not. We are marching along a river on a steep embankment. As fast as the soldiers appeared they disappear and I see my two children running around me. Playing and full of laughter. I am not worried about their safety. I am full of joy and purpose. I look ahead and I see the lion waiting for us with those same loving eyes. I look back and the same lion is following close behind us full of patience and loving kindness. I remember the phrase I have been hearing in my head “He goes before us and watches closely behind us” I also hear Isaiah 40:11 “He gently leads those with young.”

More Poetic Visions:
Often after years of conflict soldiers find it hard to live the mundane, in the day to day responsibilities of life; that is why you must look to me who is your source of joy, and I will train you to find fulfillment even in that which seems mundane, or even monotonous, says the Lord. Once you have found this place of rest off stage, from what has been unrelenting warfare, knowing how to rest in me is paramount in this next phase of your life, that I have planned for you and yours.
These are times where advancement in my kingdom is made. But, too many begin to drift, more so when the waters are still. Missing the purpose for what rest really means, a busy mind can race past moments that are meant to heal and restore you. A place to develop in other realms of accomplishment, that is unattainable in slavery, unfathomable in the wilderness, and elusive in wars. This kind off accomplishment that I want to lead you to, can only be realized with in the established borders
of your inheritance. Which is this great salvation obtained for you through my son! There is no other place, wild or free, that you will find rest for your souls.
Peace can only be found in my Kingdom. Yes you are in this world, yes there is chaos and confusion out there, but am I not a shelter in the time of storms? Did I not say to abide in me? Did I not say to dwell in the secret place of the most high? I am your wall. In all civilizations the state of peace is where the arts flourish, the natural world can testify, only a people at peace, and prospering, with in the walls of a city can pursue the more ornate accomplishments in life. In my name you shall … Silence the storms, the accusations, and mockery, of what should be for you peacefulness of mind, for it will be this place the enemy would seek to taunt you, and debate your good standing with me. My love for you is above all, and for every one of your concerns I have an answer, says the Lord.
It begins with the truth of my Word, authority in my name, and the power of my blood. These things that you have entered into, this supernatural settlement, where the borders are not only being expanded, but the foundation is run deep, yet here is not your destination, but a place that builds for you a stepping stone you need to erect a platform, to more of where I am taking you.
The oak grows slow, but it is a great tree, tall and strong, it reaches into heavenly realms farther than you could ever dream. There is more that I have for you, and your joy will be full in me, you will not be disappointed with what I have for you, let your heart rest in me for the desire of your heart is being fulfilled before your very eyes in an exceedingly natural way, in the middle of a radical age, spawning torrential storms; still, some processes are so natural that you’re having a hard time connecting the spiritual, and supernatural significance of it all, streamlining you into your destiny. It is not hindering you. Stay the course, my faithful warrior, and veteran of foreign and strange wars, that the mantle on your life has been the cause of. Above all else remember to live my Kingdom life, I desire to reveal to you, “on earth as it is in heaven” in a world postured against me. Does it not say a table would be set before you in the presence of your enemies? Continue to believe, continue to love, and do not fear. Though they walk you to a place you’re not wanting to go, I am with you. You are in me, I am in you. My Kingdom abides there still. I Am the Fourth man in your fire, I am the secret place of Psalm 91 consider verse 3. No plague … Did not the devout captives of Babylon prosper, even in their captivity? There is no other god before me, I am whom the world should fear, and to me only should any man bow. The fire your enemy sought to destroy you with shall destroy them. I will establish my faithful as Kings and Priests among nations.
… for they shall be called OAKS of RIGHTEOUSNESS the planting of The Lord.

The Lord our God in the midst of her is mighty! This podcast addresses the restoration of the power of God in the assembly of His saints. The epidemic was just one of many factors that has been diminishing the power of the ‘assembly of the righteous’ we see described in Zephaniah 3. Over the years there has been an emphasis on platform driven praise, worship, and prayer, that has taken us away from assembly driven manifestations and moves of the spirit in the same type of meetings. Deana shares with the listeners the mis application of music that has shifted congregational worship and unity into something less dynamic.
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.

HIS WORD LIKE WATER
WASHING out the sediments of wrong thinking. Christ himself cleanses HIS CHURCH with the washing of the water of His word. Ephesians 5.
True what the Father has said,”As RAIN comes down, and as the SNOW FALLS …So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:10-11
John 1:14 Yeshua, was the WORD MADE FLESH, who dwelt among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Like the early and latter rains JESUS Was that WORD- that promise, poured out from heaven. As snow kept in the HIGH MOUNTAIN TOPS for the heat of summer, the promise of God fails us not, but is there to draw upon- as our thirst for more of HIM activates the cool water reserves. (CHRIST) more trustworthy than the elements in their season, in HIS task, returned not void! He didn’t go back to the FATHER WITH EMPTY HANDS. As rain causes the earth to yield … Yeshuah is the GOD who saves.
‘For I will pour out water on the thirsty land and upon the dry ground; I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring and My blessing on your descendants; They’ll spring up as among the green grass, like willows by flowing streams.
JOHN 4:14 But whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a fount of rivers springing up to eternal life.” -Jesus
JOHN 7:47 On the last and greatest day of the feast, Jesus stood up and called out in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.”
To the one who believes in Me, it is just as the Scripture has said: ‘Streams of living water will flow from within him.'” -Jesus
Isaiah 12:3 Therefore you will joyously draw water From the springs of salvation.
It will come to pass one day that the waters that flow from the temple in Jerusalem will purify tainted waters. The Lord himself, now fulfills this passage for Christ in us full of glory is like a River-
Ezekiel 47:9 It will come about that every living creature which swarms in every place where the river goes, will live. And there will be very many fish, for these waters will go there and the OTHER waters will become fresh; so everything WILL LIVE WHERE THE RIVER GOES.
“No ye not ye are the temple of the Holy Ghost?”
“I surrender SELF to the cross that it rules me not, crucified daily, that Christ who is in me, may live through me.” Galatians 2:20
We can call upon heaven for the rain. What God has given through HIS Son. To begin with, acknowledging our own streams need made pure. Saying, “Lord purify me with the washing of the water of your WORD.”
In seeing these things made clear, and then tasting the fresh water ourselves, we will find that the Lord is good, HIS water is good, and able to change the bitter stream to sweet; where ever we open the reserve, when HIS rivers flow through us!
