Raising Our Perspective

If you ask the question “Why are you here?,” most believers would say, “I am called to be a pastor or evangelist.”  Perhaps, they would say, “I am called to be a teacher” or “I am called into a career in medicine.”

Identifying our specific calling is important.  However, fulfilling our specific calling is not the fundamental reason why God put us here.

In Genesis 1:27, God created man in His image to walk in union with Him in His likeness.  Still, in Romans 8:29, we find that God’s desire is to conform fallen man into His image. Brothers and sisters, we have missed it, if we are living for any other purpose than to express the beauty and likeness of God in character and stature. 

“We exist for God’s Glory – His Purpose – His Praise!”

 

Raising Our Perspective

Romans 8:18

“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”

Perspectives differ from one person to the next.  Many believers, perceive life as it relates to our time on planet earth.  However, the scriptures remind us that our time on this earth cannot compare to the  glorious time that we will spend with God throughout eternity.

Beloveds, planet earth is just our training ground.  I believe that we will carry our gifts with us into eternity so that we can glorify God throughout the ages!  Beloveds, we haven’t seen anything yet!

This life is hard.  Our suffering is a result of living in a fallen world.  God will use the circumstances in our lives to shape us into His likeness.

God’s ultimate goal for our lives is found in Jude 1:24: “Now to the One who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you blameless before the presence of His glory with great joy…”

God’s ultimate goal for our lives is for you (and me) to be presented blameless before Him on that great and glorious day!

Knowing God’s intent as a good Father, I can rest assure that He will walk me though my valleys, so that I can stand upon the high places with Him in this life and throughout all eternity.

“The more intimacy I experience in my walk with God, the more like Him I become.  That which has our focus also has our heart. “

With God’s perspective in mind, I am encouraged that no matter what I experience in this life, God will be glorified through it all!!!!  Through our tests and trials, we become eligible to experience life with God throughout the ages to come.

Encountering God

KingDavidDancedEncountering God must be an integral part of our lives.  When we approach the Father’s throne we hear the sound of music and dancing.   In this season, God is awaking the slumbered.  God will make known His awe, beauty, splendor, and wonder.  The entire earth is waiting for the expressions of the glory of God.   

This is a season of renaissance, recovery, and reawakening.  We must take the challenge to come up higher.  We must return to that secret place, where we are fascinated with His beauty; in awe of His splendor; and exhilarated in His presence.

There is no end to the purposes and plans of God.  There is no end to the richness of His glory in this life and throughout all eternity.

Defeating The Jezebel Spirit (Manipulation, Intimidation, and Control)

Freedom from the Jezebel Spirit in the Courts of Heaven

Is there a particular behavior the Holy Spirit has revealed to you that is blocking the purposes of God from being established in your life? As women of God we must pray to be set free from all internal Jezebel traits and external Jezebel influences.

God is passionate about us fulfilling our purpose! In fact, there are books in Heaven that record your destiny and purpose. However, we cannot step into our divine destiny until we recognize and revoke the rights of demonic principalities, such as the Jezebel spirit, from operating in our lives.

Go before the Righteous Judge

We’ve established that the Courts of Heaven is a real place in the spiritual realm where Believers have access to by way of prayer and petition, through intercession by the Holy Spirit who intercedes for the Believer.

If you have been experiencing injustice for some time, approach your Heavenly Father as the righteous Judge. Understand that He judges out of truth and love.

The evil spirit of Jezebel needs to be dealt with according to God’s truth and judgment. There is a dangerous aspect of the Jezebel spirit that has seductive and even religious traits. Therefore it disguises itself well. You can identify it by the list below. It fuels immorality in our homes, families, ministries, government and the Church as a whole, causing broken relationships, confusion and pain.

  • Throws shade [sarcastic, critical, demeaning remarks]
  • Manipulates, controls, intimidates, and dominates
  • dislikes you and will solicit others not to like you
  • Takes credit for everything
  • Condemning, critical, bitter, and judgmental
  • Narcassistic
  • One-upmanship
  • Commands attention
  • Is vengeful
  • Attempts to make you look like you are a Jezebel
  • Disapproving
  • Is jealous 
  • Is slanderous

Once we identify Jezebel’s internal and external influences we must deal with the matter in prayer. We are justified by the Blood of Yeshua, but it also remains that the enemy lurks the earth causing chaos until the Day of the Lord. We must not be blind to this or give up our inherited blessings.

“We must pray boldly about God’s purposes for ourselves and others… and be specific.”

Why do I need to take my case to the Courts of Heaven?

Sometimes we pray and pray and nothing happens. Could it be that we need to ask God WHAT it is we need to be praying, what is being held against us, and what is His purpose? Unless this spirit is cut off according to God’s law, it will return over and over again.

The evil Jezebel spirit is looking for a host not only to tear down and destroy, but also to infiltrate every relationship he or she has. It is this reason that those who operate out of the Jezebel spirit have such torn and broken relationships as a pattern in their lives.  If you have been affected by someone operating out of this wicked spirit, you likely feel like you are walking on eggshells.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking who he may devour.”—1 Peter 5:8

The word adversary in Greek is antídikos. It means that the one who accuses you brings formal charges, or a lawsuit, against you to enact a penalty.

If there are circumstances not dealt with in your life, the Bible says the devil is looking for a crack in the foundation to sneak in. The Jezebel spirit is aggressive. It will pursue you, seemingly overtake your life, and seek to destroy you, your relationships, robbing you of the promised peace in Messiah. GET FREEDOM TODAY!

“It is time to state your case and deal with it in the Courts of Heaven!”

BREAKTHROUGH PRAYER

IN THE NAME OF YESHUA

  • Father, I repent and renounce all internal and external Jezebel influences of intimidation, manipulation, and control. Father, I ask that You purify me with Your cleansing Blood. Make me a lady of much Holiness, grace, virtue, beauty, stillness, faith, righteousness, quietness, and rest.
  • I break the grip of satanic intimidation, manipulation, and control over my life.
  • Those who have made themselves instruments of oppression in my life shall be put to shame.

  • I send the fire of God against satanic control, intimidation, manipulation, and witchcraft. I am seated in heavenly places in Messiah Yeshua. I am far above satanic intimidation and control.

Father, destroy the destroyer, intimidate the intimidator, accuse the accuser, unseat the supplanter and render them impotent and powerless those who have given themselves to Satan to do evil against the children of God. Every spirit that is meant to bind me shall itself be bound and cast at the feet of Yeshua.
  • I am seated in heavenly places in Messiah Yeshua and I declare that I am lifted far above Jezebel’s manipulation, intimidation, control, seduction, enchantment, accusations, and attacks. The fire of God is against you!
  • The Lord shall utterly destroy every effort of Jezebel to destroy His prophets and the prophetic move of God.
  • Every false accusation that has risen against me shall be embarrassed and put to shame. The Lord shall restore me from captivity and shame. Double honor and a double portion shall be my reward. The Lord has brought me to full REDEMPTION.
  • Every effort of the enemy to manipulate my circumstances and cause me to be defeated in battle is annihilated.
  • Every assignment of depression and oppression that would cause me to run from my assignment is utterly destroyed. I put on the full Armour of the Lord. The joy of the Lord is my strength.
  • There shall be embarrassment for those who covet God’s promotion in my life.
  • Every assignment to manipulate my destiny and sift me from my place of blessing, purpose, and position will be put to shame.
  • Father, please cut off the tongue of Jezebel assigned to speak against the prophets. I roast with double fire every evil word calling God’s good works evil. The Lord shall show me as a token for His good. The voice of the Blood of Yeshua shall redeem me – shall speak for me – shall protect me – shall cover me.
  • Anyone wanting to use me for their own inordinate gains their plans shall come to nothing.
  • Every spell of Jezebel meant for my misfortune shall come to NOTHING and shall turn around for the opposite. Father, please cut off the expectations of those who would rejoice in my suffering. Let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end.
  • Father, I repent of my sins. If there are those who can accuse me Lord please do not hearken to the voice of my accusers but wash me with Fuller’s soap.
  • I decree and declare that everyone misuing their exalted and anointed position to attack me, that their attack shall not stand. (Duet 23:5)
  • I bring the fire of God against every spirit of Absalom that divides the family.
  • I will not be like King Saul. I break free from the spirit of the fear of man.
  • I bind every spirit of suicide and depression sent to destroy my prophetic purpose. (1 Samuel 15:27-28)
  • The Lord has hedged me in. Every attempt of fear, depression, suicide, and despair shall not work against me.
  • Father, loose the hounds of heaven against Jezebel. (1 Kings 21:23)
  • I rebuke and bind the spirits of witchcraft, lust, seduction, intimidation, idolatry, and whoredom connected to Jezebel.
  • I release the spirit of Jehu against Jezebel and her cohorts. (2 Kings 9:30–33)

  • I cut off the assignment of Jezebel against the ministers of God. (1 Kings 19:2)
  • I cut off and break the powers of every word released by Jezebel against my life.
  • I cut off Jezebel’s table and reject all food from it. (1 Kings 18:19)
  • I cut off and loose myself from all curses of Jezebel and spirits of Jezebel operating in my bloodline.
  • I cut off the assignment of Jezebel and her daughters to corrupt the church.
  • I rebuke and cut off the spirit of Athaliah that attempts to destroy the royal seed. (2 Kings 11:1).
  • I come against the spirit of Herodias and cut off the assignment to kill the prophets (Mark 6:22–24).
  • I rebuke and cut off the spirit of whoredoms in he house of God (Hosea 4:12).
  • I rebuke and cut off Jezebel and her witchcrafts. (2 Kings 9:22).
  • I rebuke and cut off the harlot and mistress of witchcrafts and break her power over my life and family. (Nahum 3:4).
  • Jezebel’s witchcraft is cut off and you will no longer cast spells. (Micah 5:12)
  • I overcome Jezebel and receive power over the nations. (Revelation 2:26)

In Yeshua’s name AMEN!

Hebrew Year 5780 – Elul: 40-Day Ascent To The Days of Awe

63416_3056518108962_513148570_n

Weighty Matters Belong To God!

“It is the Lord’s desire for His Bride to rest and find perfect peace that passes all understanding in the midst of troubles. So go ahead and quiet your soul before Him and hear His voice. Weighty matters belong to God! He silences all our accusers. He puts to death every lie. He wipes away our tears. He embraces the rejected and calls them His own. You can put your confidence and hope in Him who will never put you to shame! In the name of Yeshua, every voice that has risen to accuse you will one day beg your pardon! Weighty matters belong to God!”

A Song of Ascents Of David: Adonai, my heart is not proud, nor my eyes lofty, nor do I go after things too great or too difficult for me. But I have calmed and quieted my soul— like a weaned child with his mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me. O Israel, put your hope in Adonai from this time forth and forever.” (Psalms 131)

Elul: 40-Day Ascent To The Days of Awe

We have entered a strategic time of the year on the Hebrew Calendar. In a few days, we will enter the Hebrew month of Elul, the last month of the Hebrew calendar – 40-days before we celebrate the Biblical Feast Days of Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot (Lev 23). Many look at this 40-day period as making an ascent towards the Biblical Feast Days.

In preparation for the Biblical Feasts Days, the observant use the Hebrew month of Elul to evaluate their spiritual lives, lay down offenses, seek forgiveness, and experience redemption. Many Bible scholars refer to Elul as the “Month of Mercy” and the “Month of Forgiveness.”

How Do We Prepare For The Biblical Feast Days

In Leviticus Chapter 23, God declares that the Biblical Feast Days (Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot) are His “appointed times.” God commanded the children of Israel to keep these days Holy throughout all generations. As Believers we too can partake in observing God’s appointed times if we choose.

If we were going to meet someone for an appointment, we would prepare ourselves. Likewise, we should prepare ourselves to meet with God when the atmosphere is RIPE to hear from Him!

The ten-day period between Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur is known as the Days of Awe. The principal theme of the Days of Awe is repentance. During the month of Elul, we should take the time to prepare ourselves to meet our King at Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, and during Sukkot.

“When we take the time to prepare ourselves, we will experience a far greater measure of personal growth during the Days of Awe.”

To help reinforce the theme of redemption, during this 40-day ascent to the Days of Awe, I enjoy reading the Bible, spending time in prayer, fasting, and consecration. I find that reading devotionals helps me to maintain my spiritual stamina during the 40-day ascent towards the Biblical Feast Days.

“As we press in to this season, prophetically, I believe that the Biblical Feast days for the year 5779 will usher an impartation of refining in ministry gifting, proper alignment, shifting, and change. Expect to experience a season of SUDDENLY.”

Release The Roar – Silence The Accuser

Image result for YESHUA THE LION

Greetings Beloveds,

Have you become discouraged and overwhelmed by the intensity of spiritual warfare in this season?  Today, I want to encourage you to take heart.  Release the Roar.  Silence the lies of the enemy.   It’s not over for you.  God is not finished yet.   You have not missed it.  You are not too late.   Receive encouragement today!

“BEGIN AGAIN SAYS THE LORD!  BEGIN AGAIN!  TRY IT AGAIN.  BEGIN AGAIN!  BEHOLD I DO A NEW THING!  THIS NEW THING WILL NOT LOOK LIKE WHAT I HAVE DONE IN THE PAST.  TRUST ME SAYS THE LORD!  I WILL BRING YOU TO A PLACE OF FULFILLMENT, COMPLETION, AND REST!    BEGIN AGAIN!”

Silence The Voice of Discouragement

To be discourage is to “be deprive of confidence.”   The enemy is after your confidence in God.    When problems or pressures overwhelm us, we often experience depression, which drains us of spiritual, emotional, and physical strength. When this happens, our spirits are “crushed” and we have no desire or energy to fulfill our God given purpose.  This is the enemy’s intent.  Release the ROAR!  Release PRAISE!  Release WORSHIP!    Make prophetic declarations in the Spirit!  I will OVERCOME!  I am HEALED!  I am RESTORED!

“Put a Word {God’s WORD} against the enemy’s word!  Encourage yourself in the LORD!”

In this fallen world, discouragement and disappointment are emotions that we will experience.  However when these emotions arise, we must take care of our well being by re-setting our focus on God.  The enemy brings discouragement to distract our focus from God and His kingdom purpose.  In Ezra Chapters 4-6, the children of Israel were rebuilding the temple, the enemy sent accusations against them to disrupt the purpose of God –– halting the progress of rebuilding the temple for about 16 years.   However, many years later, God raised up a king named Cyrus to issue a decree to complete the rebuilding of the temple.

“Are you facing accusations today?  Have you been bombarded by the enemy’s lies lately?”  RELEASE THE ROAR!  SILENCE THE ENEMY!  PUT A WORD AGAINST THE ENEMY’S WORD!  RELEASE THE ROAR!  RELEASE A PIERCING SOUND OF PRAISE THAT WILL SHATTER DARKNESS!  SPEAK LIFE OVER YOURSELF!  SPEAK LIFE OVER YOUR SITUATION!  RELEASE THE ROAR!  RELEASE THE SOUND OF PRAISE!

If you are discouraged today, look up!  Yeshua is our hope.  He revives our broken spirits.  He puts back the pieces of shattered dreams and broken lives.   

“BEGIN AGAIN SAYS THE LORD!  BEGIN AGAIN!  RELEASE THE ROAR!  SILENCE ALL DISCOURAGEMENT – KEEP ON BUILDING!  KEEP MOVING FORWARD!”

Rediscovering The Beauty of Hiddeness – Conquering The Spirit of Distraction

970059_3298763804953_837326619_n

Conquering The Spirit of Distraction

To become distracted is to be drawn away from the attention of your original position, goal, purpose, direction, or interest.   In Joshua 8:15-19, Joshua used distraction as a method of ambush against the men of Ai. They will pursue us until we have lured them away from the city, for they will say, ‘They are running away from us as they did before.’ So when we flee from them, you are to rise up from ambush and take the city.”

Likewise, the enemy uses distraction to ambush us and draw us away from our peace, purpose,, strength, safety, and destiny. Often distractions will appear as noble deeds and good works. Before we realize what’s happening, we find ourselves overwhelmed and too weak to resist the concentration of the enemy’s attacks, for we neglected to maintain our spiritual strength, because we were distracted by burdens that God never meant for us to carry.

“There is beauty in hiddeness. There is beauty in stillness. When we have too much traffic coming in and out of our lives we open ourselves up to warfare that God never intended for us to encounter.”

How to Overcome Distraction

Yeshua must be the focal point of our lives “…Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself as having taken hold of this. But this one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal for the reward of the upward calling of God in Messiah Yeshua.” (Philippians 3:13-14).

The enemy’s job is to distract our attention away from God so that we would become weak and vulnerable concerning spiritual matters. Below are a few strategies that will aide us in conquering the spirit of distraction.

  1. Maintain an abounding love relationship with God (Matthew 22:37)
  2. Purse intimacy with Messiah (Luke 10:38-41)
  3. Maintain a lifestyle of worship (John 4:24)
  4. Seek God’s direction in all matters (Proverbs 3:5-6)
  5. Develop a fervent prayer life (Luke 18:1)
  6. Attend fellowship regularly (Hebrews 10:25)
  7. Read God’s word with understanding (2 Timothy 2:15)
  8. Serve with humility (Acts 6:1-4)
  9. Exercise your spiritual gifts ( 1 Timothy 4:14)
  10. Abide in God’s secret place (Psalms 91)
  11. Maintain undivided focus (Isaiah 50:7)

Prayers to Conquer The Spirit of Distraction

  1. In the name of Yeshua, every assignment of the enemy against my life is canceled.
  2. In the name of Yeshua, let the secret counsel of the wicked be turned into foolishness. (Psalm 64:2)
  3. In the name of Yeshua, no weapon formed against me shall prosper. The gates and plans of hell shall not prevail against me.
  4. In the name of Yeshua, I overcome every strategy of hell against my life.
  5. In the name of Yeshua, every strategy of hell is exposed and brought to light.
  6. In the name of Yeshua, I receive the plans of God for my life, thoughts of peace and not evil to bring me to an expected end.
  7. In the name of Yeshua, I am delivered from every satanic trap and plot against my life.
  8. In the name of Yeshua, Lord please release Your whirlwind to scatter those who would conspire against me. Let those who devise my hurt be turned back and brought to confusion.
  9. In the name of Yeshua, I destroy the assignment of the spirit of distraction. Every assignment that is meant to derail me and my focus is obliterated in the name of Yeshua (Nehemiah 6:1–6).
  10. In the name of Yeshua, I shall not be distracted, I shall fulfill all that Father God has ordained concerning me. (Psalms 139:16)

480576_2647792611080_1570629523_n

“Over the last few months, but especially this last week, I have felt a strong urgency in the Spirit to not be “rushing ahead” right now. There is an invitation from the lord right now to rest, be still, and linger with Him and not be in a hurry because He is releasing crystal clear revelation for 2020 and beyond. There are many in the body of Christ that are feeling like they are living in the place of constant transition and trying to find the “missing piece”. The Lord showed me right now in the place of lingering with Him, being quiet before Him, resting in Him and waiting on Him, that He is releasing strategy and insight into 2020 and beyond that is actually greater than has even been asked for. There is a deeper positioning in Jeremiah 33:3 that the Lord is inviting us into. ‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.’ (AMP Version).

I heard the Holy Spirit say “Things will not be as they have been” – this was not a negative statement – this was a declaration of UPGRADE. This was a statement of PROMOTION. This was a statement of the NEW that He is leading His people into. This was an invitation into taking “NEW LANDS” that were on completely different maps to what you have “walked on and in” previously. This was an invitation into a new adventure with the Lord and pioneering new pathways. It was an invitation into allowing the Holy Spirit to prepare you to carry what He is releasing. 

“IN MY PRESENCE ALL OTHER VOICES ARE SILENCED AND MY VOICE BECOMES LOUD!” 

I heard the Holy Spirit whisper “In My presence all other voices are silenced and My voice becomes LOUD!” The sense surrounded me that many are surrounded with many “options”, others are surrounded by “many voices” and there is so much “noise”. In the place of “not rushing ahead” and specifically waiting upon Him, the other voices are going to be silenced and the Lord’s voice is going to become LOUDER than ever. There will be such ‘high definition’ dreams, visions and encounters from the Lord that you will have crystal clear clarity of what He is speaking and releasing to you regarding 2020 and beyond. Do not fear that you will “miss it.” The key is to “WAIT ON HIM” and He is going to MAKE IT CLEAR.

The loving warning from His heart is to not rush ahead in what you have done before or “think” is the way He is moving, because things will not be as they have been before. The words then surrounded me “I WILL MAKE THE PATHWAY FOR THE NEW DAY AS PLAIN AS DAY!” 

Proverbs 3:5-6:

“Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make. Become intimate with Him in whatever you do, and He will lead you wherever you go.” 

Some of the pathways that the Lord leads you down and releases you into will feel like you’re going “off the beaten track” but that is the place of the greatest encounter with Jesus, provision, favor and move of His Spirit you have experienced thus far, will be found. It’s time to PIONEER NEW PATHWAYS with Jesus to see His Kingdom established and Glory revealed. Some of the revelation the Lord is releasing for 2020 and beyond is going to seem completely “opposite” to what is being told to you that you “should do.” Can I encourage you to follow the Lord’s voice at all costs. Follow Him and obey completely. The Lord will demonstrate His favor and vindication as you walk in obedience. The time we are in now in this new era and what God is going to do and entrust us with is SO precious we must be people that bow to His voice alone and not the expectations of man. It’s time to come out of “ungodly expectations and pressures” and walk wholeheartedly in the counsel of the Lord. As you step out in obedience to His voice you will see the voices of the wise drawn to you by the Lord to confirm your way.

“The Lord is strengthening you in the wrestle, He is strengthening you in the tension, He is fortifying you in the opposition and the transition, so you move forward walking in purity, obeying His voice and His strategy alone and swayed not by man and man’s opinions.” 

Discernment is going to MAJORLY increase in the place of “waiting” upon the Lord for 2020 and beyond especially in “sniffing out” the lies of the enemy and the python spirit that has twisted what God has said and lies and fears of old and they will be uprooted once and for all. You will “smell” the stench of these lies and recognize them for what they are and uproot them with your authority and the power of the Word of God. They won’t have the affect they have had on you before as the volume of the Lord’s voice MAJORLY increases raising your discernment like never before, so 2020 will not be infected by these lies but you will walk in a whole new level of freedom from these things and a deeper place of access of His heart and His revelation and wisdom for 2020 and beyond and move accordingly without fear. 

“2020, THE YEAR OF THE SPRINGBOARD INTO THE GREATEST UNLOCKING OF THE NEXT 10 YEARS” 

As I sat with the Lord seeking His heart regarding this word, the words surrounded me “2020, THE YEAR OF THE SPRINGBOARD INTO THE GREATEST UNLOCKING OF THE NEXT 10 YEARS.” I then had a vision and as God’s people were sitting with Him, refusing to “run ahead” because things ‘looked good” or “sounded good” but waited on His direction, I saw keys raining down upon them from heaven and these keys were on fire. I then heard the words “2020, THE YEAR OF THE SPRINGBOARD INTO THE GREATEST UNLOCKING OF THE NEXT 10 YEARS.” What God is releasing now for 2020 is going to UNLOCK foundational strategy, wisdom and revelation for the next 10 years in INCREASE.

God is rebuilding foundations and laying new foundations with the revelation He is releasing for 2020 which is going to unlock significant strategy and wisdom to BUILD WITH HIM. God spoke to me for this year (2019) that what He is doing this year is setting us up for LONGEVITY. 2020 is going to see a MAJOR increase of that, but especially regarding VISION. Ministries are going to rapidly and radically change going into 2020.

There is a divine makeover God is doing and in 2020 and beyond MANY ministries will look completely different along with the FIVE FOLD being raised up and positioned to operate in the church from 2020 and beyond in unity in ways we have not yet seen. The shifting, shaping, changing of the guards, and rearranging God is doing is to make room for the new wine and for the King of Glory to step in. (Psalm 24:7-9) 

“CHILDREN WILL PLAY A MAJOR ROLE IN WHAT GOD IS DOING IN 2020 and BEYOND.” 

Last year I had a dream and the Lord spoke to me about this new era and the mighty outpouring of His Spirit and He whispered “It won’t begin until it begins with the children” God is restoring the family unit. He is restoring the ministry and family balance and teaching His people in greater ways how to do family (as a household and the body of Christ) well. God is going to restore the awe and wonder to the Church like we have never seen and some of the greatest demonstrations of His Spirit that are going to leave people both who know Jesus and those who do not yet know Him in awe and wonder as He moves through “The least of these” – THE CHILDREN.

We are already seeing God do wonderful things through children but I heard the Holy Spirit say “You ain’t seen nothing yet. Children will play a MAJOR role in what I am doing in 2020 and BEYOND” The Lord went on to share with me that there will be a MAJOR increase of divine insight, wisdom and strategy for doing life as family, well. A major increase of His heart and revelation for parenting and sowing into the next generation that we have not yet increased. I also saw many children and their hearts were broken. There was trauma and hurt and the Holy Spirit spoke to me to encourage Mothers, Fathers, Grandparents, carers, aunties, uncles, anyone who has a child on their heart and believing for healing for their broken heart and traumas, the Lord has heard and seen. Your prayers availeth much. Keep interceding because God is restoring and healing and you will see the Holy Spirit not only restore and heal them but they will begin to walk in encounter with Jesus and the gifts of the Spirit in 2020 like you have never seen. 

“With a joy in His heart I heard Him whisper to the adults “Pay attention to the children for they are going to teach you a lot more about Me and My Word and prophesy My way and strategy to you for 2020 and beyond.”

The children with their childlike faith and trust in Me will release impartation to the adults and teach those who have been walking with Me for years, MUCH, going into 2020 and beyond, so make sure you are watching and listening.” Friends, don’t be in a hurry. What God is revealing, releasing and positioning you into for 2020 and beyond will leave you in nothing but awe and wonder of our beautiful Jesus and your heart burning for Him stronger than ever.” AMEN

Deliverance From Unfriendly Friends

By Mountain of Fire Ministries

Introduction:

Confessions: 2 Timothy 4:18, Job 5:12, Isaiah 54:17

“Forgive The Person but cut the ties”

Who is an unfriendly friend? An unfriendly friend is one that pretends to be your friend but is actually an enemy in disguise (Proverbs 27:6). Luke 21:16 cautions us that “we shall know them by their fruits.

An unfriendly friend is disloyal, a backbiter, and a betrayer of confidence.

An unfriendly friend is one who remains friends with the world and attempts to corrupt your good character.

An unfriendly friend is one that digs a pit for you to fall into.

An unfriendly friend is one who is ever misjudging you.

An unfriendly friend tares you down rather than building you up.

An unfriendly friend spreads gossip, lies, and accusations concerning you.

An unfriendly friend is one who encourages others to dislike you.

An unfriendly friend is one that is full of envy towards you.

An unfriendly friend is one who does not wish you well but pretends otherwise.

An unfriendly friend is one that can pollute your anointing and your life if you do not exercise great care.

An unfriendly friend is one that covets the little you have been given, although they are abundantly blessed.

An unfriendly friend doesn’t have your best interest at heart.

An unfriendly friend is one with an agenda that is not in your best interests.

An unfriendly friend sheds crocodile tears and sympathizes with you in public but behind your back says “Serves her right!” “Good for him!”

An unfriendly friend is one that circulates your name around for evil.

Prayer Strategy:

Forgive all offenses.

Ask the Holy Ghost to expose, separate and keep unfriendly friends away from you.

Pray for the restoration of everything that you have lost to unprofitable friendships.

Spend quality time in worship.

Prayer Points:

Father, we declare that “No weapon that is formed against us shall prosper and every tongue, which rises against us in judgment, we do condemn [PROVE TO BE IN THE WRONG]. This is our heritage as servants of the LORD, and our righteousness is from You, O LORD of Hosts.” (Isaiah 54:17).

If there are those who have been speaking or praying against us, or seeking to harm, or do evil to us, or who have rejected us, we forgive them and having forgiven them, we ask that You would reduce their hearts to love, transform them into Your holiness, and birth within them reverent obedience to You Father so that the enemy can no longer use them against us, in the Name of Yeshua.

Worship Experience:

Favor is the ability to receive and inherit BIG God dreams.  Favor is permission to ask, seek, and knock while being sure that God’s answer is “favorable.”

“As we grow in favor, we can experience God happily indulging Himself in our lives because He has a definite, intentional bias towards us. He loves to teach us to dream bigger by enlarging our hearts to receive everything He has for us.”

With favor, our starting place is always in the truth that God is for us, with us, and has a magnificent outcome planned for us. Even when we face problems, our problems are nothing compared to God’s POWER.

The Spirit of Adoption: Breaking The Spirit of Illegitimacy

The curse of illegitimacy affects our ability as believers to build a close fellowship with the FATHER, and with other believers. Illegitimacy targets the free flowing of the Spirit of Adoption — the Holy Spirit which enables believers to cry out, “Abba, FATHER!”

Illigetimacy causes one to feel unloved, unwelcomed, and unaccepted. Satan’s uses illegitimacy to prevent intimacy with of our FATHER. The enemy desires to prevent us from having a close and personal “Daddy” relationship with our heavenly FATHER and bonding with the family of God.
A person who has a foundation of illegitimacy, often has a huge deposit of rejection which leaves us feeling out of place, unwanted, and unsettled.

Illegitimacy will cause us to put up a huge wall of self-protection. Illegitimacy will cause us to become estranged from our spiritual and natural families. Illegitimacy will often cause us to uproot ourselves from our place of blessing in search of a place of acceptance, yet never finding it.
Freedom from the curse of illegitimacy has deep implications for the practical deliverance of GOD’s people. This curse is a noteworthy
device of satan to keep GOD’s people from their rightful inheritance in the congregation of the righteous.
We must realize that no one can be set free where ignorance prevails. So, please journey with me through the workbook below to identify, understand, and overcome this weapon of the enemy — the curse of illegitimacy.

May the FATHER give us all grace and mercy to continue to set captives free, and confirm HIS WORK with signs, miracles, and wonders following.

FATHER GOD has set us free.

REHOBOTH: YOUR DESERT PLACE IS ABOUT TO FLOURISH

Image result for WATER IN THE WILDERNESS

From Here to There

Genesis 26:1-4:

Now there was a famine in the land—aside from the previous famine that happened in Abraham’s days. So Isaac went to King Abimelech of the Philistines, to Gerar.  Then Adonai appeared to him and said, “Do not go down to Egypt. Dwell in the land about which I tell you.  Live as an outsider in this land and I will be with you and bless you—for to you and to your seed I give all these lands—and I will confirm my pledge that I swore to Abraham your father.

We all have a place in our hearts called “there.”  Our place called “there” is a place of rest – a place of promise – a place of freedom –  a place of purpose – a place of destiny.

For Isaac and Rebekah that place called “there” was the Promised Land.  After the death of Abraham, a famine spread throughout the land, forcing Isaac and Rebekah to move to Gerar.  This must have been quite frustrating for Isaac and Rebekah considering that the land of Canaan had been promised to Isaac, yet due to a famine Isaac was instructed to leave from their place of blessing.

fourish

During their sojourn in Gerar, Isaac and Rebekah faced great struggles.   Isaac and Rebakah seemed to be just moving in circles, not really accomplishing anything – not really moving ahead.  Every time Isaac tried to take a step forward for his family, opposition pushed him two steps backwards.  Life was so difficult for Isaac and Rebekah in Gerar that whenever Isaac tried to provide for his family by establishing wells to sustain his household, the Philistines came along and commandeered the wells, claiming the water for themselves.

Genesis 26:19-21:

“Then Isaac’s servants dug in the valley and found a well of living water there. But the shepherds of Gerar quarreled with Isaac’s shepherds saying, “The water is ours!” So he named the well, Quarrel, because they quarreled with him. Then he dug another well and they quarreled over it too, so he named it Accusation.”

On one occasion, Isaac named a well Esek, which means “quarrel.”  On another occasion Isaac named a well Sitnah, which means “accusation.”  However, Isaac showed great character through these difficult circumstances.  Isaac kept moving forward and he dug another well.

What we must glean from Isaac and Rebekah’s sojourn in Gerar is that at times life is unfair.  We will be wronged on occasion and often our earnest efforts will seem to be in vain.  Despite the opposition, Isaac kept moving his family forward.

“When we are faced with life’s challenges, we can approach life in one of two ways.  We can either focus our prayers on surviving, or we can focus our prayers on thriving.  There’s a time and place for both approaches.  Surviving is a skill set.  Thriving is also a skill set.  Having spent many years of my life in the surviving category, I can tell you that surviving is situational while thriving is a state-of mind.”

Rehoboth

Genesis 26:22:

“And he moved away from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it; so he named it Rehoboth {wide spaces}. ‘Because now Adonai has created wide spaces for us and we will be fruitful in the land.’”

“Rehoboth means “wide spaces.” Rehoboth refers to the promises that only God can give and the enemy cannot take away.  The Philistines did not contend for Isaac’s well at Rehoboth.  At Rehoboth we find that our place called “there” is not merely a place of physical fulfillment, but a place of lasting peace and intimacy with God.”

Life is full of challenges.  We all experience our share of obstacles.  Constant frustrations can drain the life out of the strongest sojourners.  However, Isaac’s and Rebekah’s example is clear.  Keep moving forward.  Keep walking by faith.  Keep trusting God for His promises God will bring you to broad places. 

At Rehoboth Isaac and Rebekah’s circumstances began to change.  Isaac kept moving his family forward until he pitched his tent once again in the Promised Land.  Genesis 26:23 tells us that Isaac and Rebekah sojourned in a place called Beersheba which is located in the Negev desert.

At Beersheba Isaac built an altar and he dug another well.  At Beersheba God appeared to Isaac and reconfirmed to him the promises that He had made to his father Abraham.

The struggle that we experience during our journey “from here to there” builds our character and prepares us to walk in our purpose.  If we walk in faith – in time – God will bring us into that which He has promised.  In God, there is such a thing as “happily ever after.”

Prayer:

Genesis 26:12-13:

Then Isaac sowed in that land and in that year reaped a hundredfold. Adonai blessed him  and the man became great and continued to become greater until he became very great.”

In the name of Jesus – May the Lord empower you to prosper, grow, move forward, and wax great! Amen!

Go After The Big Grapes

Facing Your Giants

Has God led you to confront a situation that is greater than your capacity to handle? Often, our situations – our dreams are insurmountable without God! This devotional will equip us to ENTER and POSSESS the inheritance God has promised – and conquer the strongholds keeping us from FREEDOM and FULLNESS in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus).

In Numbers Chapter 13, God commanded the children of Israel to spy out the Land of Canaan that had been promised to them. However, the land was occupied by giants, so the twelve spies came back with a negative report.

Often God will give us assignments that are much bigger than we are.

When Israel went into the land of Canaan, they saw abundance and the greatness of the people, the children of Israel measured their promise according to their inadequacies. The children of Israel ran from their promise in fear instead of possessing their inheritance in faith.

God never asked Israel if they were strong enough to possess the land of Canaan. We often fall into the same trap when we compare our potential against our promise.

“The Report We Believe Will Often Determine the Future We Will Experience.”

How many times, have we talked ourselves out of the GREAT THINGS God had for us because, we measured our promise according to our abilities and inadequacies. Since Israel believed a negative report that generation did not inherit what God had promised.

Exodus 13:27-33

“This is what they reported to Moses: “We went to the land where you sent us. It really is a land flowing with milk and honey. Here’s some of its fruit. But the people who live there are strong, and the cities have walls and are very large. We even saw the descendants of Anak there. The Amalekites live in the Negev. The Hittites, Jebusites, and Amorites live in the mountain region. And the Canaanites live along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea and all along the Jordan River.”

“Go After the Big Grapes!”

Whose report will you believe? I will believe the report of the Lord! God is looking for believers that trust Him enough to go after the BIG GRAPES!

To magnify God in our worship, is to bring God close to us, so that we can see how AWESOME – how GREAT – how BIG – God really is. When we magnify God in our situations we see how MAGNANIMOUS God is compared to our circumstances!

In life, our perspective of God will often determine how we encounter and experience life. If we see God as ALL POWERFUL we will conquer and inherit! If we see God as absent and withholding love, we will retreat from the challenges and opportunities that move us closer to our destiny!

Likewise, how we see ourselves often determines what we experience. If we see ourselves as grasshoppers, we will live like grasshoppers. If we see ourselves weak – we will be weak. If we see ourselves with the BIG GRAPES we will go after the BIG GRAPES.

Beloveds, like the Nike commercial says, JUST DO IT! Do what God has called you to do. Believe me, God will send someone to encourage you in your assignment. As we read in our scripture text, you don’t need the multitudes, all you need is a Caleb and a Joshua.

Caleb and Joshua, returned with a good report. Ten spies returned talking about problems. Caleb and Joshua returned talking about BIG GRAPES. Ten spies returned talking about problems. Caleb and Joshua returned talking about promises.

We all see life from different perspectives. Whose report will you believe? Will you believe the lies of the enemy that will constantly tell you that you are not qualified – you are not good enough – you are the wrong gender – wrong color – too old – too young?

Beloveds, when we listen to the lies of the enemy…. when we choose to value peoples opinions rather than to obey God, we will spend our life wandering in the wilderness like grasshoppers when God wants us to be in the Promise Land enjoying the BIG GRAPES.

Beloveds, I want the BIG GRAPES. I want you to have the BIG GRAPES too.

Ephesians 1:3

Praise be to God the Father of Yeshua! Through Messiah, God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing that heaven has to offer.”

God has equipped us with every spiritual blessing that we need to live a victorious life in Messiah Yeshua. Our perspective of God must be set in right focus so that we can experience the awesome power of God in our lives!

In closing, I pray that this devotional has inspired you to have the kind of faith that says these giants are big – but my God is BIGGER!

“The same giants that Israel ended up running from, were the same giants that God had already delivered into their hands.”

Beloveds, whatever ministry, career, or destiny that God has called you to, God has already gone before you and made the crooked places straight.

Isaiah 45:2:

“I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron.”

God has already released the favor you need to possess the promise.

2 Chronicles 16:9a:

“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.”

Dueteromony 28:7:

“The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you. They shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.”

My prayer for you beloveds is that God would strengthen you to fulfill His purpose for your life! Your story has already been written (Psalms 139:16).
