IMMOVABLE

In my dream this morning someone in the church was “profiling” me. I believe this is a subject that will speak to many right now. ‘The meaning of PROFILING is the act or process of extrapolating information about a person based on known traits or tendencies; specifically : the act of suspecting or targeting a person on the basis of observed characteristics or behavior.’

There was a video posted with me with some of my body exposed, it was shown from the profile however I knew this wasn’t even my body though it was made to look like me. They were falsely trying to expose and identify me in an untruthful light. Then I went to church (it was a church I didn’t recognize, symbolic) and my reserved seat was taken, it was reserved because I was part of a team on platform. The chairs didn’t flow, you could visibly see chairs had been removed and people who weren’t supposed to sitting in them had taken them, and there were empty spaces in the rows for more chairs.

Similar to this dream, not that long ago the Holy Spirit spoke to me and confirmed with scripture that there were false accusations circulating about me. I knew at least one person was someone close to me. But I actually said, Lord I don’t even want to know.

I believe so many are so close to walking in destiny that these suspicions, accusations and assaults are the last giant trying to take you out before you possess your promise. Don’t fall into the trap! Offense will in turn have you operating in the same suspicion.

This is the test – in the natural love and bless your enemy. In the Spirit, raise your hand and move on. Go low. Release blessing. Watch your words. This is the Leviathan that contorts and twists words to bring division and destruction. (I recently wrote in, “Clean Your House” regarding snakes in the Church). “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” Matthew 5:44-45

Maybe it looks like your seat is taken, perhaps it looks like there is no room for you. In the dream I had to fulfill my assignment so I went to the stage anyway, just after discovering this video. In the dream I said to someone, I have to take this down (video). A video, movie, or a clip – it’s something you watch ‘play out’. Don’t become an actor in the enemies theater. Stay focused on your assignment. Do not defend yourself. However in the Spirit, the assault can be dismantled, and the best way is to humble oneself and stay close to the Lord. “The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14.

I had a feeling more seats would be brought in to the sanctuary, though I could not wait, I had to take my position even though there was a slight hesitation because of the video. This is your greatest challenge right now, do not let the appearance of things keep you from fulfilling your assignment! Be assured, the Lord Himself will place you in your seat. And maybe you aren’t supposed to be sitting – perhaps it’s time to stand. Immovable. Unshakable.

Holding Peace

Holding your peace is an action, even if a state of mind. The Lord will fight for you, but you must hold your peace and remain in rest. Guard it!

“The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest.”
‭‭Exodus‬ ‭14:14‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

“You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.”

RISE AGAIN

I feel the Lord’s heart over many right now saying, ‘it’s not as terrible as you think’. The enemy’s main skill is using fear and intimidation to get us to back down. That is literally the definition of fear in Scripture – to cause a shrinking back, to paralyze.

Last night I heard in the Spirit, ‘little miss muffet’. I knew it was a children’s rhyme but didn’t recall the lines. I looked up the nursery rhyme to see what the Lord was wanting to say.

Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet,
Eating of curds and whey.
There came a great spider
And sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.

This is a story of an innocent little girl enjoying God’s provision when the enemy comes along to scare her away.

It’s just a spider – you’re bigger than he!

If you ran away, come back and take your seat.
If you were pushed, resist and push back.
If you fell, get back up! Look again, you’re not even bleeding – just a little sore.

I just read earlier this morning we learn to walk by falling down. As adults we think mistakes are failure, but remember we must remain in childlike faith to enter the Kingdom. Many of you are in new territory, and or at a new level so therefore you are like a child in some ways. You’re learning something new, and the Lord wants to remind you there is grace and mercy. As curds and whey are mentioned in the nursery rhyme, they are both made from milk. Symbolically, some of you are just in the beginning phases of tasting the promises in the land of milk and honey. You’re stronger than you know, fight for what is yours.

The time at which I heard “little miss muffet” was exactly 9:36 p.m. This correlates with Scripture in Mark 9:36,37 ““And He took a little child and put him in the center of their group; and taking him in [His] arms, He said to them, Whoever in My name and for My sake accepts and receives and welcomes one such child also accepts and receives and welcomes Me; and whoever so receives Me receives not only Me but Him Who sent Me.” The Lord has compassion on you. He is your safe place to learn and fall. No one else could love you more. In the same way, sometimes we need to look at each other through that same lens, we are all God’s children in some place of process and growth. Sometimes when we are really hard on ourselves, we are hard on others too. We receive the love of the Father and are transformed by its power when we come to Jesus in childlike posture of heart.

Be encouraged today, Heaven believes in you and they are cheering you on, and so am I! (Side note: I get asked often if I was a cheerleader, and the answer is no! Basketball was my best sport and I often ‘took the charge’!) 😅

“Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world.” ‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:4‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

“For a righteous man may fall seven times And rise again, But the wicked shall fall by calamity.” Proverbs‬ ‭24:16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“For the lovers of God may suffer adversity and stumble seven times, but they will continue to rise over and over again. But the unrighteous are brought down by just one calamity and will never be able to rise again.”

Threshold

IN THE SPIRIT, THE NEW BEGINNING IS HERE; ITS TIME TO ADVANCE, CONQUER AND OCCUPY!

I keep hearing THRESHOLD in my spirit this morning. “A threshold is what you step across when you enter a room. A threshold takes you from one place into another, and when you’re about to start something new, you’re also on a threshold.”

“Arise and thresh, O Daughter of Zion! For I will make your horn iron And I will make your hoofs bronze; That you may beat many peoples in pieces [trampling down your enemies], That you may devote to the Lord their unjust gain (pagan possessions) And their wealth to the Lord of all the earth.” Micah‬ ‭4:13‬ ‭AMP‬‬

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN CONTENDING IN THIS SHIFT, ADVANCE, CONQUER, OCCUPY!

SEATED WITH THE SON – how to move forward in a time of war

It takes humility and childlike faith to remain in your Kingdom position, seated with Christ in heavenly places.

On one of my trips to Heaven when I was four years old I was eating fish with Jesus. I looked under the table (which was really like a different dimension) and there were scary and funny looking people, and then Jesus’ reaction was to laugh at them, and so we laughed together at them (demons). Jesus our great Shepherd does prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies as scripture writes; it is not a fairytale, it is my reality.

In this time of increased spiritual warfare we must go low. In going low in the earthly realm, we soar to heavenly heights above the noise in the spiritual – truly the upside down Kingdom. Jesus already positioned us here, though it is belief coupled with humility and childlike faith that give us continued access to rule and reign with Him. We take His lead, we enjoy His presence and provision, we laugh at the enemies beneath us, we fix our eyes on The Ruler of all and receive from Him. If He has made His enemies a footstool beneath His feet, then they are under our feet too.

Overflowing with His joy and presence, satisfied from the fullness that comes from dining at His table, we can then give from this abundance in the earthly realm and love the hurting, broken and distressed. This is how we must learn to move forward in a time of war.

“He raised us up with Christ the exalted One, and we ascended with him into the glorious perfection and authority of the heavenly realm, for we are now co-seated as one with Christ!” Ephesians‬ ‭2:6‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“And He raised us up together with Him [when we believed], and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, [because we are] in Christ Jesus,” Ephesians‬ ‭2:6‬ ‭AMP‬‬

‬‬“Yahweh said to my Lord, the Messiah: “Sit with me as enthroned ruler while I subdue your every enemy. They will bow low before you as I make them a footstool for your feet.””‭‭Psalms‬ ‭110:1‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them.” Psalms‬ ‭2:4‬ ‭NLT (scoffs at His enemies)

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my [brimming] cup runs over. Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and through the length of my days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place.” ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭23:5-6‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭16:11‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Loving Our Enemy

We are seeing a lot of unrest in the nations, there are poor and even evil choices being made across the global board by those in leadership – it seems as if there’s no escaping it. However, even in our anger, sadness or even ‘prophetic decrees’ it’s important to remember that it is not the person who is our enemy.

People are never your enemy because people are made in the image of God. It is the spirit they have allowed to rule them you are witnessing and thereby deciding for or against, drawing boundary lines, etc. The greatest love is when we don’t agree with these individuals but because we know Who paid the price for their eternal freedom, we walk in love toward them. They don’t hate you, they hate Christ in you. Loving our enemies doesn’t mean allowing them to abuse us, and putting our safety at risk as much as it is knowing Jesus paid the price for their lives to receive them as His inheritance. When we adopt this mindset, our approach toward them moves from one of defense to offense as we see them rightly through God’s eyes. The true enemy are the spirits of the world that control them.

““You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:43-48‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:12‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Go Low

When you know that you know that you know, but everything is coming up against what you know, go low. He is your great confidence in the storm, a humble heart the Lord will not deny, He is near to the broken hearted, a refuge and strength for those who put their trust in Him.

“But as for me, I will wait and hope continually, and I will praise You yet more and more.” Psalm 71:14

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!

THRIVING IN CHALLENGING CONDITIONS; LOOKING UP THROUGH THE CRAPE MYRTLE TREE

Last evening with not many words left to utter I laid on the grass looking up into the sky through the Crape Myrtle tree (pictured). Pondering wild faith and long suffering, have I done all I know to do? Have I yielded? And then after having done all you know to do – contend and stand and believe … oh it made me tired just pressuring myself. Spent, I laid back into the grass and gazed upward. It’s ok to not have the answers and it’s ok to not understand. But it’s not ok to have doubt and unbelief in my heart, and this is the great wrestle as I want no part of the later. Earlier in the morning I was re-reading out of Hebrews 11, 12 to strengthen my soul in my weakness, “faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses”, and then dialoguing with Lord ‘How do I obtain this type of faith written about of hero’s of old?’. The Bible writes that out of reverence Noah built the ark unto the Lord. Just thinking of his example leaves me speechless.

Physical realities were defied early on for me. I visited heaven before my brother and sister passed away, and I also dreamt of heaven often. I spent time with Jesus, and even after the accident at just newly five years old I had my first out of body encounter with Jesus in the sky. I carried a lot of faith, I even believed years after my siblings passings that they could be raised from the dead. I would say (assuredly) until more recently that I carry the gift of faith. I remind the Lord often what I believe He has spoken to me, the type of person that will hold on until the very end!

Understanding warfare and the Spirit realm is not new to me. I am not an expert, but I have operated in a Seer anointing (see, know and feel) since I can remember. For example, I cried through weddings as a young child because I was grieved, I knew it was not right, and the consequence of those unions I would later experience and see was detrimental, so much so that just weeks after one of the marriages I witnessed the man try to kill his wife and I had to get help. Another example is the night of the accident we made a stop at a home and when I walked through the door I felt a thick blanket of evil (I was not even 5 years old), within minutes of leaving the fatal car accident occurred. Years and years of experiencing the Lord and the spirit realm like this, and yet recently I question myself like never before. I question my ability to hear rightly, to discern, to apply, to steward, and my love for God. Many in the Body of Christ, including seasoned leaders and prophets are experiencing this type of mental warfare as well.

The Body has been assaulted, pushed, pruned, and tested like never before. The mental pressure coming against me recently felt like it was going to break me. Just when you think the air is clear, it’s suddenly muddy and confusing again – another reason we are to bear one another’s burdens and cover each other in prayer. Jesus sent His disciples out two by two, as there is power in agreement and that same power we need now more than ever to make it in this last hour. While there is warfare coming from our adversary, most of (if not all) the pruning and testing is from the Lord! You may be thinking it’s cruel, as I for one recently said to the Lord through hot tears, “why must You test me so harshly?”. I mean for real though, are most of our lives on the line? What feels harsh really isn’t in the scheme of things, though no doubt it may be painful. You may have heard me express some of this over the last nearly two years, though I believe some of the reasons we have been in a long season of intense testing are: 1. “If you don’t make it now, you will not make it later” We are building stamina. 2. In general we have been ‘asleep’ for a very long time, our muscles and movements need to be strengthened within the Body as a whole as we regain power and come back into the awareness of our true identity in Christ. Think endurance and strength training. Our minds are being sharpened as we go deeper into the foundation of the Word of God. 3. The mental warfare is so strong because the Lord is trying to sync us with His systems, and rid us of the patterns of the world. This is a transformation of the mind, which is sometimes the most difficult but the most essential. 4. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken as we are inheriting an unshakable Kingdom, therefore we must also be unshakable! 5. The Lord is returning for a pure and spotless Bride who has made herself ready, she is mature. Mature people bear fruit, and good fruit can only be present when the branches have been pruned. Mature sons and daughters yield to pruning and testing because they trust their Maker’s touch, and know it connects them more closely to His heart. 6. The Lord is preparing us for rulership and authority to inherit nations with Him. 7. Purification is for the glory of our King, that we may become the transformed. And if you endure until the end you will receive a victor’s crown!

It was August 27, 2020 I heard in the Spirit the word, “forbearance”. One of the definitions of forbearance is the exercise of patience; long suffering. More than any other Fruit of the Spirit listed in Galatians 5, I believe we need the fruit of patience as we ready ourselves for the return of the Lord. Most people have not endured the wait for this fruit to be developed, however 1 Corinthians 13 writes that love (which also happens to be the first listed fruit of the spirit) suffers long, is patient and kind. Another version writes that love endures with patience and serenity. You see, it’s one thing to be able to carry something for a period of time, but the longer we have been trained to carry the further the distance we can go through the endurance built. From a larger perspective as those called to be carriers of God’s presence we have been training for the fulfillment of the Habakuk 2:14 scripture, “But [the time is coming when] the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” One of the definitions of glory in the Bible is described as weight, the weighty presence of God. Some have misunderstood this season of long suffering as crushing for punishment, but it is crushing for endurance, for oil, for wheat, and new wine. I was reminded of an encounter I had near that time when I heard “forbearance” in 2020, my arms became arms of bronze and my fingers like flames of fire. I was going through such heated testing and training in the summer of 2020 that I had manifestations where my arms from my elbows down were completely red and my face as well, and later started experiencing encounters marked feeling heavy weight over me while sleeping, and in my arms and legs. While the lessons in the testings have shifted, they have not totally dissipated. “Consider it nothing but joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you fall into various trials. Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace]. And let endurance have its perfect result and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfect and completely developed [in your faith], lacking in nothing.” James 1: 2-4 AMP. When I was in my 20’s I had a dream that I gave birth to a toddler. In the dream I named him, and I know by the meaning of the boy’s name what this represents. It is a promise that has yet to come to pass, one of the main reasons for my long suffering and need of endurance, however if we assume how can a woman birth a toddler lest it kill her? Exactly, the Lord is strengthening us to carry His glory, but also to birth His divine will and plans that are bigger than us into the earth realm. We can agree that it is physically impossible for a woman to birth a toddler, which is why we must come into agreement with the Spirit. What the Lord is doing is supernatural, it is not by force or by strength, not by might or by power, but by His Spirit! (Zechariah 4:6).

I’ve often said to myself over this last year, “if you can get through this, you can get through anything”. Giving up on MY ability, last evening while looking through the Crape Myrtle tree I thought how vibrant the flowers were, yet it didn’t seem very appropriate for the autumn season. I asked my friend what type of tree it was, and then looked up characteristics, “The colorful, long-lasting blossoms of crape myrtle make it a showpiece in classic Southern gardens. But it is not a particularly delicate plant and it can thrive in conditions that would be a challenge for other plants.” While I may argue that I am more inwardly delicate than not (insert smile), I agree this is a prophetic picture of beauty in the long suffering; I see a parallel in long-lasting vibrant blossoms and long suffering. Rest in the yielding. An ability to thrive in challenging conditions. You are being made strong, rooted, and destined to overcome. Take a breath, look up, receive grace and mercy.

“Therefore the Lord waits [expectantly] and longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; Blessed (happy, fortunate) are all those who long for and wait for Him [since He will never fail them].”
Isaiah 30:18 AMP

“For this reason the Lord is still waiting to show his favor to you so he can show you his marvelous love. He waits to be gracious to you. He sits on his throne ready to show mercy to you. For Yahweh is the Lord of justice, faithful to keep his promises. Overwhelmed with bliss are all who will entwine their hearts in him, waiting for him to help them.”
Isaiah 30:18 TPT
