In Him We Live

IN HIM WE LIVE AND MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING
(Acts 17:28)

“What a God you are! Your path for me has been perfect! All your promises have proven true.
What a secure shelter for all those
who turn to hide themselves in you!
You are the wrap-around God giving grace to me.
Could there be any other god like you?
You are the only God to be worshiped,
for there is not a more secure foundation
to build my life upon than you.
You have wrapped me in power,
and now you’ve shared with me your perfection.
Through you I ascend to the highest peaks of your glory to stand in the heavenly places, strong and secure in you.” Psalms 18: 30-33 TPT

IT IS THROUGH FAITH THE RIGHTEOUS ENTER INTO LIFE

“This gospel unveils a continual revelation of God’s righteousness—a perfect righteousness given to us when we believe. And it moves us from receiving life through faith, to the power of living by faith. This is what the Scripture means when it says: “We are right with God through life-giving faith!””
‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:17‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Faith is so contrary to the natural that NOT walking in faith will cause you to stumble. Read that again! Not walking in faith will actually cause you to stumble!

“So then, what does all this mean? Here’s the irony: The non-Jewish people, who weren’t even pursuing righteousness, were the ones who seized it—a perfect righteousness that is transferred by faith. Yet Israel, even though pursuing a legal righteousness, did not attain to it. And why was that? Because they did not pursue the path of faith but insisted on pursuing righteousness by works, as if it could be seized another way. They were offended by the means of obtaining it and stumbled over the stumbling stone [Jesus], just as it is written: “Be careful! I am setting in Zion a stone that will cause people to stumble, a rock of offense that will make them fall, but believers in him will not experience shame.””
‭‭Romans‬ ‭9:30-33‬ ‭TPT‬‬

This is why the pure in heart see God, because children are pure (mostly unattached to the patterns of this world in heart and mind) and we must be childlike in this way to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

Faith unlocks what can be seen in the Spirit, our true reality. Ask for eyes to see, discern, and comprehend behind the veil.

“For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭4:17-18‬ ‭AMP‬‬

If you are feeling weak and unsure how to strengthen you faith, start with scripture. Even if it’s just one. Faith is more tangible than you think or know. It’s an actual substance. “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans‬ ‭10:17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“Faith, then, is birthed in a heart that responds to God’s anointed utterance of the Anointed One.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭10:17‬ ‭TPT‬ – this is an actual response of our heart to Scripture. ‬

Bless you today!

The God Who Hears

Today was one of those days I shed a lot of tears. And as much as I love writing, I don’t even think it’s in me to poetically state what the Lord just did! Our adjectives do not suffice to describe Him no matter how eloquent the writer in any regard. So simply said, yet no less powerful; He is Love and He is good.

We know He is faithful and true, yet when we are tested and still contending for a promise with no answer or ‘rain cloud’ in sight, when you desperately need the ‘Red Sea to part’, this is where the great war continues within; aligning allegiance of the soul (mind, will, and emotions) unto all that the Spirit has spoken. Spent from my own wrestle, I ended one of my prayers this evening postrate on my bed uttering aloud, “I know You hear me… but Lord could You please just give me a sign You are listening ?!?”. I then heard clearly “go outside and look in the back of your car”.

Too emotionally tired to put “two and two together”, almost forgetting what I just prayed, I simply went out to the car and started looking around in the backseat. I didn’t find any ‘treasures’, so I asked the Lord why He had me come out there. But He knows me, and knows I’ll keep on looking… so I opened the trunk and was going through some of my things when a gold chain that was out of place caught my eye. I pulled it out and to my surprise it was a favorite necklace that has been missing for over a year! It’s actually the second time this necklace has gone missing, and the time prior the Lord gave me a dream about where it was though I had looked in that same place before (it had fallen out of the jewelry bag). Though I am elated to have it again, more joy than the restoration of the necklace is the meaning of what is inscribed on it, ‘LOVE’.

When I am listened to, I feel love. And so the One who knows my love languages best, speaks to me in such a way that my heart can be revived. And I am in love with Him, even when I don’t understand, even when I don’t have the answers. He is good. He is faithful, He is true. Love will always sustain us. Our spirit knows, but we must remind our soul He is the God who hears.

“The Lord your God is among you; He is mighty to save. He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet you with His love; He will rejoice over you with singing.”” Zephaniah‬ ‭3:17‬ ‭

The Purity of God’s Promises

“The words and promises of the Lord are pure words, like silver refined in an earthen furnace, purified seven times over.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭12:6‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Silver is symbolic of redemption and seven symbolic of completion and perfection. The promises of the Lord are completely redemptive! This is the new covenant and all the promises and words of the Lord spoken to you will redeem you from one level of glory to the next. The promises of God will transform your life and perfect that which concerns you. I bless you with greater expectancy and belief in your heart today; all His promises are yes and amen. 🌈🤍🕊

FIRST LOVE

The greatest gift you can give the Lord is your heart. Today I am praying for you, more fire of devotion for your first Love … “And you shall love the Lord your God with all your [mind and] heart and with your entire being and with all your might.” Deuteronomy‬ ‭6:5‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

“I LOVE You fervently and devotedly, O Lord, my Strength.” ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭18:1‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

“Lord, I passionately love you and I’m bonded to you, for now you’ve become my power!” Psalm 18:1 TPT

RESTORATION OF BRIDAL LOVE

This morning while in the middle of an encounter with the Lord, I heard very clearly “I am redeeming every part of your being” and “no longer will you remember the shame of your youth”. I physically felt the Lord’s passionate fire manifesting on my body, with waves of laughter following; and though the encounter intimate, great depths of joy vibrated over my being. Truly the Lord’s words are pure, living and active. I immediately knew this was not only a personal encounter, but symbolically He is removing shame off His Bride in this hour in its deepest layer that she may experience a greater depth of attachment to His heart.

The Spirit of the Lord is saying there is a new level of healing for all in His Body, even ‘the healed’. As I sat with the Spirit on this I saw many who had been healed in the sense of there was no sign of reaction or trauma, you had done the work on your end in the Spirit and in the natural.  But in the Spirit the Lord said, I am redeeming you, every part, the places that have left you with questions, lack of understanding, and wonderment. His blood has bought every place of you, even covering your experiences and that which you have not understood about yourself for the purpose of trusting His touch, that He may remain in you and you in Him; oneness. “Do not fear, for your shame is no more. Do not be embarrassed, for you will not be disgraced. You will forget the inadequacy you felt in your youth and will no longer remember the shame of your widowhood. For your Maker is your husband; his name is Yahweh, Commander of Angel Armies! Your Kinsman-Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel! He has the title Mighty God of All the Earth!” Isaiah 54:4-5 TPT

As the Lord was speaking I could feel warm oil in my right ear.  Just two days prior He was speaking to me about oneness when I felt this same warm oil in my ear.  I was driving on the highway when I heard and felt an acceleration in the Spirit; I could feel a brief moment of gripping, almost a resistance but in the next moment there was a thrusting forward. There has been a ‘shifting back to go forward’ for many and it is for the building of momentum for acceleration. I was experiencing this while looking up at an exit that I was passing, exit 111.  Immediately I knew this meant the Spirit was accelerating oneness with Him. I felt the Lord speaking so specifically that I voice texted to document, and the exact time was 12:58 p.m.  When I asked the Lord about the time stamp, He showed me that it was two minutes before one; in other words, ‘the two becoming one”.   “Marriage is the beautiful design of the Almighty, a great and sacred mystery – meant to be a vivid example of Christ and his church.” Ephesians 5:32 TPT

On my return home on the same highway, at 3:16 p.m. I felt the hot oil in my right ear, I looked over and saw exit 99.  The Holy Spirit reminded me of the parable of the lost sheep, leaving the 99 to go after the 1 found in Matthew 18 and Luke 15. He then highlighted the time stamp again with John 3:16, “For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trust in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.” AMP.  I saw a new side of the parable; the begotten One going after the one to be One. The Holy Spirit then highlighted that Shepherds will anoint their sheep with oil, this oil acts as a protective barrier and will even prevent death.

I believe the Lord is saying that He is redeeming all of His Bride; He is anointing her ears for deeper trust as a protective barrier, while the oil also guards what He is depositing in the secret place, and in the secret place He is anointing her with His oil of gladness (Isaiah 61:1-3). Psalm 133 likens oil with unity, Paul writes in Ephesians 6:10 that we are to be empowered through our union with Christ.  Our intimate union with Christ is not only experienced at the Marriage supper of the Lamb, though can be accessed now as the Lord is inviting us into His inner chamber where the Lamb is pouring out His oil to prepare, restore, and redeem His Bride. 

This is the beginning of the restoration of Bridal Love.  A couple of months ago I had a dream where I was a married to a minister.  I knew this was symbolic as the Lord has often used me symbolically as a picture of “His Bride” and I didn’t recognize the woman as looking like myself in the dream.  We were standing on a slightly raised platform with our congregation, worshipers all surrounding us in a crowd.  I leaned in to kiss him, and it was if I had forgotten how sweet it was so I kissed him again, and then a third time.  Typically this is not the kiss you see in church ‘on display’, however it was not inappropriate. Again the number three representing the Spirit, this was a dream representing the reawakening of bridal love, so that in unity, “The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” Revelation 22:17

The Lord is saying, this is the return of “PDA”, The Bride will affectionately show her love for her Husband in renewed covenant. The Church is becoming aware of the missing affection in the relationship, and pure public displays are going to be demonstrated by the leading of the Spirit. She will fall in love with her Husband again, and will recognize and call Him her Beloved. “Let him smother me with kisses – His Spirit-kiss divine. So kind are your caresses, I drink them in like the sweetest wine! Your presence releases a fragrance so pleasing – over and over poured out. For your lovely name is “Flowing Oil.” No wonder the brides-to-be adore you. Draw me into your heart. We will run away together into the king’s cloud-filled chamber.” Song of Solomon 1:2-4 TPT

Building In The New Era

As we are rebuilding in the new era it is important to note that the new blueprints do not change from the church of Acts in that the foundation is laid by the Apostles and Prophets, and most importantly Jesus Himself the Chief Cornerstone.

The reconnected heart to the Bridegroom will be the marking flame that distinguishes the old plans from the new. “Marriage is the beautiful design of the Almighty, a great and sacred mystery—meant to be a vivid example of Christ and his church.” Ephesians 5:32 TPT

“You are rising like the perfectly fitted stones of the temple; and your lives have been built up together upon the foundation laid by the apostles and prophets, and best of all, you are connected to the Head Cornerstone of the building, the Anointed One, Jesus Christ himself! This entire building is under construction and is continually growing under his supervision until it rises up completed as the holy temple of the Lord himself.” Ephesians 2:20-21 TPT

His dwelling place is for the married ones – we are building a permanent home for marriage (and family) through union with Him. “This means that God is transforming each one of you into the Holy of Holies, his dwelling place, through the power of the Holy Spirit living in you!” Ephesians 2:22 TPT

TO SURRENDER IS TO GAIN

What was your first job? You may have not enjoyed it, but I’m sure you remember it’s value to you. I swept the floors along with other janitorial duties at one of my grandfathers Dry Cleaners during my school breaks when I was 11 yrs old and was paid $4.25 an hour. Even a Cleaners needs to be cleaned.

The pay was minimum wage and family was not shown favoritism monetarily. I worked for the business through college, and over the years as I matured my tasks changed and with it pay increases.

In the same way, the Lord is cleansing His Church, and developing His family. He is strengthening and maturing Her so that she can handle more responsibilities. The pay increases can be compared to mature fruit. My last position was helping in the office in accounting. Our last position before the return of Christ we will give an account for the fruit we have developed.

This is a season of divine growth and maturing in the Body if you will yield to it. Some may outgrow you though only because of their surrender. If you want more pay in the Spirit, count the cost and do the work. I guarantee you the Lord will increase whatever you surrender to Him.

“But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions: joy that overflows, peace that subdues, patience that endures, kindness in action, a life full of virtue, faith that prevails, gentleness of heart, and strength of spirit. Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless. Keep in mind that we who belong to Jesus Christ have already experienced crucifixion. For everything connected with our self-life was put to death on the cross and crucified with Messiah.” ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5:22-24‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Guarding The New Season

Yesterday morning when I woke up I heard “season of divine romance”. It is also a subject I have been writing about prophetically for a over a year.

A few points to remember right now in the changing of seasons – 1) all that is opposite of what God speaks to you will try to manifest against you 2) any public movement will be a manifestation of what is meditated on in private 3) popularity is work to be sustained while anointing is like a fragrance that can not be contained.

Choose Him over every distraction, romance needs to be guarded. You can buy popularity but you can not buy the anointing. Anoint is defined as to smear or rub with oil or perfume. This is a season of divine revelation, and more specifically ‘Bridal Revelation’. In the midst of hearts awaking and coming to life again, it is crucial to guard all that would hinder and distract us from His love. As you live from the secret place, when the time comes you will not be drawn in and tempted by movements of popularity but rather let the oil on you from His presence draw others to the very heart of God that they too would encounter His fragrance and yield themselves to devotion. True transformation always begins in the heart; here we either yield to popularity or anointing, and model the counterfeit or original.
