Hello Beloved of the Lord! I have missed you but as some of you know I have been taking time off with the Lord in obedience. I have been in several transitions and dealing with some intense warfare all rolled into one. I also have not had access consistently to a working computer or phone for some time, but decree I shall be restored in Jesus Name Amen!
Those of you that follow me on Facebook, I encourage you to listen to the prophetic word the Lord gave for this year 2018. It is in two parts and packed full of His Awesomeness. You can listen to part one on my ministry page here and part two here. If you want a quick bullet version you can check out my prophetic art here or see at the top of either ministry pages, which displays the points He had me go over.
Part of the word for us this year is all about the Lord’s fire, purity and consecration. It also has to do with huge miracles and Red Sea type of deliverance! Can anyone relate? I want to encourage you that if you are going through intense fiery trials like never before, or it seems unrelenting or repetitive in nature (where the enemy won’t stop pursuing you in certain areas like Pharaoh) it is because the Lord has already set in motion blessings for you to walk in on the other side but you (and me) need to mind our mouths!
Now, more then ever, we want to be mindful of what we are saying. I have been studying and meditating on Mark 11:23-24 scripture for quite some time now. Another similar scripture we often refer to is Proverbs 18:21 – death and life are in the power of the tongue and we shall eat the fruit thereof…WOW. Come on now somebody.
We all seem to like to quote this, but do we honestly understand and believe this? Because if we do, then what we speak will and should drastically change. This is some POWERFUL Truth people of God. LIFE and DEATH. We SHALL HAVE WHATEVER WE SAY…
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall SAY unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he SAITH shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he SAITH. (EMPHASIS MINE)
Another great part to this is verse 24 that says we are to also BELIEVE that we have RECEIVED what we have prayed and then we SHALL have it!
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. This is also a key in faith and receiving!
John 10:10 says that the enemy (devil) comes to steak, kill and destroy. Like many of you, the enemy has attacked me over the last several months from every angle. In fact, his attacks have been so over the top at this point that it just proves and shows he is immensely terrified of me walking out my calling and purpose that God has for my life! Can you relate? I know many of you can and that is because the enemy is terrified of you too! You may say but why me? Well, it’s actually CHRIST in you!
So I want to encourage any of you that are going through heavy stuff. Apostle Peter put it this way in 1 Peter 4: Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.
I know for us at times we are surprised, well Peter admonishes us to not be surprised and to actually recognize this as God’s glory upon us and to then rejoice! The devil is afraid of the glory of Christ in you. He shows this when he relentlessly attacks. He would not bother if you were not a threat to his kingdom. The glory of the Lord rests upon YOU Beloved. Let that truth sink in today.
As Believers, we are the ones that can invoke change. We are the ones that the Lord, in His amazing grace, has given authority to trample on all the evil works of the devil in the Name of Jesus. We are the ones that can speak in the Name of Jesus knowing that every knee must bow and confess that Jesus is Lord. We are God’s Beloved filled with the Greater One in us. Of course the enemy is trembling, he knows his time is short.
Our job is to keep pressing in and forward with our eyes fixed on Jesus Christ, the Author and Finisher of our Faith. Meditate on His Word, pray without ceasing, speak out and decree His Word (now more then ever) no matter what it looks like or whatever is thrown at us. Keep standing like the Word says. Exercise your authority in Christ and when you have done all to stand, stand therefore, having put on all the armor of God securely. Keep declaring and decreeing the word of God in Jesus’ Name. Stay sober and keep steadfastly praying for one another Bride of Christ and let us not forget that the last part of John 10:10 is that the Lord has come that we may have life and life to the fullest! We Win!
