Where Is The Power?

The Lord said to me yesterday many do not walk in the Spirit’s power because they refuse to walk through times of testing.

The Gospel has never been weak – but the Church and it’s Body are weak when we do not allow the perfect power-filled Word to test us. We do not have endurance because our faith hasn’t been tested. (James 1:2-4). We settle for comfort, and complain God has not “done” for us. The fruit is immaturity that tastes not the sweetness of the Vine.

Maturity is not how much you “know”, maturity is how much you yield. Mature sons and daughters yield to the leading of testing and pruning. The Holy Spirt led Jesus into the wilderness to be tested and 40 days later He came out “armed with the Holy Spirit’s power”. Where is the power? It will be given to you to the degree that you yield to the Holy Spirit.

“From the moment of his baptism, Jesus overflowed with the Holy Spirit. He was taken by the Spirit from the Jordan into the wilderness of Judea to experience for forty days the ordeal of testing by the accuser. He ate no food during this time and ended his forty-day fast very hungry.” Luke‬ ‭4:1-2‬ ‭TPT‬‬
40 Days later ….
“Then Jesus, armed with the Holy Spirit’s power, returned to Galilee, and his fame spread throughout the region.” Luke‬ ‭4:14‬ ‭TPT‬‬

A Worthy Heart

This morning I had a powerful vision I pray blesses you. I was praying in the Spirit and I sensed I was in the courts of Heaven. There was a weight on my heart, and I very much felt the accusations of the adversary. I had bound these spirits to the foot of the cross in English, and broke any agreement that they were part of my identity. However, there was still something being prayed through me. As I yielded to the Spirit I went into a vision and saw Jesus’ hand (index finger) writing w o r t h y in His blood over my exposed heart.
I asked the Lord for Scripture and two passages came to mind.

“So now the case is closed. There remains no accusing voice of condemnation against those who are joined in life-union with Jesus, the Anointed One.” Romans‬ ‭8:1‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“Your hearts can soar with joyful gratitude when you think of how God made you worthy to receive the glorious inheritance freely given to us by living in the light. He has rescued us completely from the tyrannical rule of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom realm of his beloved Son. For in the Son all our sins are canceled and we have the release of redemption through his very blood.”
‭‭Colossians‬ ‭1:12-14‬ ‭TPT‬‬

The blood of Jesus closes the case in the courts! The enemy uses his index “pointer” finger to accuse the body, Jesus uses his index finger to authenticate truth over your heart and prophetically point you to the legitimacy of your identity. The enemy lies to intimidate with ‘all that you are not’, while Jesus speaks truth into all that you are.

Revelation 12:10 writes that the accuser of our brothers and sisters (who are the body of Christ) relentlessly accuses us before God day and night. As we grow and mature in our spiritual journey warfare shifts in awareness and intensity, but one thing will remain; the truth of God’s Word. Sometimes we will find ourselves in the courts of Heaven (and not always on the defense) but when your heart is pure and united to Christ’s, you can remain confident you will “win the case”, for the release of redemption is through His very blood. His blood made you worthy to receive this beautiful inheritance- beloved identity in Him to rule and reign with Him.
May we look to Jesus beholding all that HE is, may we incline our ear to His voice and hear the words of life from the Author and finisher of our faith. (Hebrews 12:2).

The Will Of The Heart

I have been giving warning words and dreams since I was literally a young child. I don’t enjoy it, but I aim to be obedient and walk in the fear of the Lord. I have seen the outcome of when people do not heed the warning. I’ve actually seen people lose everything. One time at just five years old I warned a family member not to marry a man, I cried through the entire wedding. Two weeks later I had to run for help as this man I warned about tried to beat and strangle the newly married woman. And the stories continue over the years, so it is with great reverential fear I deliver what I believe I am to write or say. The weight is sometimes accompanied with a grieved heart when you see them (the person, persons, nation etc) choose to go their own way.

It feels helpless, because I can pray for ears to hear and eyes to see but ultimately it is an issue of the persons heart – and that comes down between the person and God only. One of my triggers used to be when I didn’t feel listened to, and well that still doesn’t feel great!

There is a weight to our words, to our choices, to our will. Destiny is hinged on obedience, like dominos many other lives are affected by just the slightest of our choices. Sometimes lives swing in the balance of an unknown eternity on these hinges. (And the Bible says even the “elect” will fall away).

Then I think of Jesus, He gave His life! Crucified to win our souls and ultimately our hearts. There is no greater display of love… and I can only help but think how His heart must feel, to be TRUTH Himself and yet not be listened to knowing He shed His blood and made a way, the complete and perfect pathway to eternity! But it doesn’t end there, He also extended provision to live an unchained life here on earth.

If you’re a preacher, a house mom, a student, a king – it doesn’t matter how much you have or how little. You will be judged the same. Your heart and your will belong to you, with it what will you do? Who and what will you choose?

But for Love, I will drink this cup

The paradox of love and suffering. In love Christ suffered for us, and He still suffers for our love. Our hearts may suffer long on this side of Heaven but we become like Him and know Him in this mysterious realm. Some of us have more prolonged aches than others, and many times we ask, “not this cup, please”. The cup of long suffering. But for love, for union with Him.

“Love suffers long”.
1 Corinthians 13:4

“And just as we experience the abundance of Christ’s own sufferings, even more of God’s comfort will cascade upon us through our union with Christ.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭1:5‬ ‭

“And I continually long to know the wonders of Jesus and to experience the overflowing power of his resurrection working in me. I will be one with him in his sufferings and become like him in his death. Only then will I be able to experience complete oneness with him in his resurrection from the realm of death.”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭3:10-11‬ ‭

Justice Speaks

When praying for America today and feeling heavy, the Lord reminded me of two things.

First, He reminded me of the time when I was at the roller skating ring with my brother. We were unsupervised, and a group of young boys were pushing and taunting him. He was crying and I being three years older, and about 8 years old at the time stood up to the bullies for him. In return, I was punched in the stomach and the wind was knocked out of me. I had no regrets because I was standing for justice. It was not my nature at that age to be talkative, or outgoing. I was actually shy, but when ever I was in a situation of injustice, or I just knew something was “wrong”, I almost always spoke up.

A similar memory happened with my younger sister, except this time I was several years older. We were skiing in northern Michigan with family friends, and though she was beside an avid skier she was gaining speed down the hill at a faster pace escaping our friends beside her. I stopped ahead of her and was trying to block her because she was headed straight for the trees. We were all yelling “pizza”, “pizza” (the shape you make with the skis to slow down) but she just gained more momentum. In order that my sister didn’t fatally wound herself, I stepped in and had her run into me, I was the thin barrier between she and trees at this juncture. The collision knocked me over and the wind out of me, but my sister didn’t suffer injury. I was sore for awhile but if I hadn’t intervened there could have been a detrimental outcome.

Secondly, the Lord said to me “Purim would not be Purim if Esther had not spoken up”. Purim began last night at sundown and is celebrated through today and extended into Sunday in Jerusalem. It is the most joyous of the Hebrew festivals, celebrating the liberation of the Jews from Hamon’s evil plot to rid them from the world. Esther risked her life, and spoke to her husband who was also the King to plead for the lives of her people.

Many in the Body have felt like the wind has been knocked from them. But guess what? You are still breathing! Your voice is needed in this hour. Do not stand down. Some people have been taking “hits”, and at first it may seem justice is not prevailing but keep going. You are equipped to avert plans that would harm, or bring injury to your brothers and sisters in Christ. Esther is the story of risk, Faith, and favor. Speak up, take that risk in faith and the favor of the Lord will be with you!

“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Unfailing love and truth walk before you as attendants.” Psalm 89:14

“Then Esther spoke to Hathach and gave him a message for Mordecai, saying, All the king’s servants and the people of the king’s provinces know that any person, be it man or woman, who shall go into the inner court to the king without being called shall be put to death; there is but one law for him, except [him] to whom the king shall hold out the golden scepter, that he may live. But I have not been called to come to the king for these thirty days. And they told Mordecai what Esther said. Then Mordecai told them to return this answer to Esther, Do not flatter yourself that you shall escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise for the Jews from elsewhere, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion?” Esther 4:10-14 AMPC

Reverse America

America, America, God shed His grace on thee. America, a place where principles of covenant and life were once revered. We have distanced ourselves so far from His greatest sacrifice, where from our eyes once looked upward we now look inward. Disconnected we mistakenly pattern, and give holy offerings to the enemy of our God.

We have drifted so far from Love our hearts have become worn and bitter. We have refused to let the pruning hook of our loving Creator tend to our hearts and in great contrast have welcomed and normalized the pruning hook of strangers into our wombs (abortion). We have willingly surrendered our two greatest treasures, our love for God and our offspring; we have rebelled and murder His image growing within. We have forsaken the secret place for carnal intimacy, and with longings unfulfilled we perpetuate a backward cycle that ends in physical and spiritual death. We have exchanged our oneness with God for a mortal copy of intimacy; we have submitted to systems we were not created for.

We honor death and abandon life. The wages of sin is death. We perish for lack of knowledge. It is time for a divine ‘reverse’. Turn around, come back to the higher way of thinking and spiritual order.

“So repent (change your mind and purpose); turn around and return [to God], that your sins may be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing (of recovering from the effects of heat, of reviving with fresh air) may come from the presence of the Lord;”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭3:19‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

The Mindset of Miracles

If I told you that your miracle was on the way, you would more readily approve or ‘like’ this message. If I suggested that you repent, you would probably disengage or ignore the message. But what if repentance was the key to your miracle? To repent means to change your mind and be restored to a higher way of thinking.

I encourage you to ask the Lord how your mind could change. Are there thought patterns that hinder your moving forward?

The Heavenly Kingdom is at hand, and we must change our thinking to perceive and receive it. John the Baptist prepared the way for the coming of Christ with this message. And we will prepare the way for Christ’s return with this message as well. Jesus worked miracles as a sign and to testify He was from His Father’s Kingdom. Shift your mind, the patterns of this world are not from the patterns of Heaven. The gospel is power unimaginable to all who will receive it, so I bless you with a greater measure of faith to attain the fullness held in His Name.

“IN THOSE days there appeared John the Baptist, preaching in the Wilderness (Desert) of Judea And saying, Repent (think differently; change your mind, regretting your sins and changing your conduct), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭3:1-2‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Addendum – A WARNING, AND THE REDEMPTION OF THE OX AND THE PLOW (released 2.11.21)

This is not about the sides of ‘union’ or ‘confederate’ in history, this is about symbolism. Keep watching and pay attention!

Yesterday, 2.12 while spending time with the Lord I heard Stonewall, and then Jackson. I put the two names together and I remembered this was a man’s name and historical figure, but could not recall much else. When I went to research him, I thought this information was particularly interesting as I just released a word regarding the ox and bull the day prior, and heard Stonewall on the actual day of the Chinese New Year; the year of the ox (their word also includes bull, cow, and buffalo). This is significant because Thomas (Stonewall) Jackson received his nickname at the Battle of Bull Run.

“Jackson earned his nickname at the First Battle of Bull Run (also known as Manassas) in July 1861 when he rushed his troops forward to close a gap in the line against a determined Union attack. Upon observing Jackson, one of his fellow generals reportedly said, “Look, men, there is Jackson standing like a stone wall!”–a comment that spawned Jackson’s nickname. Jackson was commissioned a major general in October 1861.”

“The First Battle of Bull Run, also known as the Battle of Manassas, marked the first major land battle of the American Civil War. On July 21, 1861, Union and Confederate armies clashed near Manassas Junction, Virginia. The engagement began when about 35,000 Union troops marched from the federal capital in Washington, D.C. to strike a Confederate force of 20,000 along a small river known as Bull Run. After fighting on the defensive for most of the day, the rebels rallied and were able to break the Union right flank, sending the Federals into a chaotic retreat towards Washington. The Confederate victory gave the South a surge of confidence and shocked many in the North, who realized the war would not be won as easily as they had hoped.” (https://www.history.com/topics/american-civil-war/first-battle-of-bull-run)

Manassas is a boy’s name from the Hebrew, Manasseh. “The name Manasseh is generally seen as derived from the verb נשה (nasha), to forget but forgetting due to “evaporation” of a memory the way water evaporates due to solar heat, or the way a principle evaporates due to interest:” “Verb נשא (nasa’) describes an upward motion, generally of something that is being pulled up and out so as to remove it. This verb occurs very often and can usually be translated with (1) to lift or lift up, (2) to bear or carry, and (3) to take or take away. An identical verb (or rather the same one used in a specialized way) means to loan on interest. The practice of loaning on interest causes the principal sum to slowly but surely evaporate and was prohibited under Mosaic law. A third identical verb (or again the same one) means to deceive or beguile.” “The name Manasseh is probably due to a grammatical form in Hebrew that is comparable to the English present continuous. It fixes the letter מ (mem) to the root. That would give the name Manasseh the meaning of Forgetting. Another reason why a mem may occur in front of a root is when it comes from a particle that means “from”. Hence the name Manasseh may also mean From A Debt.” (https://www.abarim-publications.com/Meaning/Manasseh.html)

As we continue to battle in the unseen realm, we often will be given symbols that are clues to us in the natural realm. These symbols help us put the puzzle together, give us strategies to pray, and make us aware of what is on God’s heart. We need to continue to “mind the gap” in prayer and in intercession. I believe the Lord is showing us significant things are transpiring in the Spiritual realm as we set our faces like flint (stone) before Him with intention. The enemy will not penetrate successfully when we close the open areas where we are susceptible to attack. There is more revelation to unpack in this, but I’ll let you come to those conclusions on your own. Blessings!

This is word I released on 2.11 that coincides: https://ablazeglobalproductions.com/2021/02/11/a-warning-and-the-redemption-of-the-ox-and-the-plow/

Reformation Begins In The Mind

Many have prophesied we are in a new era, this is the season of the reformers. Well how do we execute a new pattern we haven’t seen before? Our thoughts shape our reality, so true reformation begins in the mind, and we have to think like we have not thought before.

A Word for the Church:

“Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Old patterns are not working. Old systems have expired. Old wine skin has burst. Move on and upward!

Let Me Burn

If I could explain the benefits of a “yes” to God, I’d die a hundred more times so you would know He is good. Somewhere in the flames of sacrifice you transition from yielding your flesh unto burning to beholding His glorious frame.

The heat of His presence tangible, now nearer still He speaks from the eternal flame. I’d die all over again and as many times required because it is here that life really begins. There is no other that can captivate my being, His longing for me draws me closer and in my longing for Him He returns.

My soul and my spirit pray, let me always stay here fastened to Your heart.

Selah
