Trials, Testings, and Temptations

1Peter Chapter 1 v 6-7. You should  be exceeding glad on this account, though now for a little while you may be distressed by trials and suffer temptations, So that the genuineness of your faith may be tested (your faith) which is infinitely more precious than the perishable gold which is tested and purified by fire (this proving of your faith is intended) to redound to (your) praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) is revealed.

As the days to the end of age is approaching, I am noticing that so many Christians are under spiritual attack more than ever these days. The devil who has read the bible more than a lot of people knows that his days are short. You might be saying “The devil has read the bible? Yea how else did he quote scriptures to Jesus?  The enemy knows your weaknesses, and that is where he seems to hit on, which is different for each individual in the body of Christ. Trials come in all different shapes and forms, and the enemy does not care which trial he uses to bring you down, just as long as the job is accomplished.

John 10 v 10 says, “The thief comes but to steal, kill and destroy” Now Jesus does not send the trails and temptations. Jesus came to give us life and give it to us abundantly John 10 v 10 also says. James chapter one verse 17 says’” Every good and perfect gift is from above, it comes down from the Father of all that (gives light) in whom there is no variation or shadow cast by His turning.” God is a good God and only good, giving us only good things, and the devil is evil, but in the process of life, we are tested as to what choices we are going to make. Let’s face it Saints, it’s one thing to sing about how strong we are when were in church, or as we go about our day when all is going well. It’s another thing when you have to live it out, like when they’re not enough money to pay the bills; your boss tells you you’re not needed anymore, thank you. It’s another thing when you’re facing foreclosure, or the doctor gives you a bad report, or your spouse leaves you for someone else, and your kids are going haywire on you.

Now suddenly you have to live out what you sing, and now that’s a different story, and it’s not as easy.

Be Glad, In the Midst of Mad?   How?

1 Peter Chapter 1 v 6 tells us to be exceeding glad. Well is he crazy, or has he had too much to drink? Well the following verses tells that through these trials the genuineness of your faith is tested, and as the words in those songs we sing in church or the scriptures we like to quote to our friends makes its way down our own heads, way down the 18 inches to our own hearts, that faith will rise up from within us and shine forth as 24k gold.

Fire is what purifies and perfects gold, and the fire that comes along with the trials and temptations is what tests and purifies your faith as you make the choice to follow God no matter what. Remember the song “the cross before me, the world behind me”?.  The Word says that your faith which is infinitely more precious than gold that perishes. Why ? because gold is a material substance and your faith is a seed planted within you by the Holy Spirit. The greater the testing, the greater the trail, the greater the fire, but the greater the quality of the gold of your faith comes forth in the long run. In the end, this will show forth to your praise and honor and glory when Jesus Christ is revealed and a beautiful crown to be laid down before Him.

Anyone can put on a good show when things are going well, but it’s when things get tough, will the tough in Christ put on their army boots, pick up their sword and shield, put on the helmet of Salvation, the breast-plate of righteousness, take those songs and those scriptures and breathe them forth in power and authority by the Spirit of the Lord. You see it’s in those times that we prove to heaven, hell and everyone around us that we say what we mean and mean what we say, “Jesus and only Jesus is Lord of our lives!”.

O.K. not convinced were supposed to be happy in all these trials? Now I’m a faith preacher so I’m not saying to be happy for everything, because let’s face it, not everything is of God, but we can be happy and joyful if you please, in everything, because “Greater is He in us then he who is in the world”, and we are more than Conquerors through Jesus Christ, and there power wonder working power in the Blood of the Lamb.

Smile! You’re in The Midst of Problems!

Let’s look at another scripture which is in James 1 verse 2.
Consider it wholly joyful my brethren when you are enveloped in or encounter trails of any sort or fall into various temptations. Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith brings out endurance, steadfastness, and patience. Now I’ll be honest with you; I never use to like these scriptures, because I did not like the idea of problems. But let’s take our heads out of the sand, and face the fact that problems are all around us, especially in the days we live it. So the Word is telling me when I’m  enveloped in problems (in other words it’s all around me, underneath me and above me, and I’m stuck in the middle of it like quicksand, I’m supposed to be wholly joyful? They got to be kidding! Yes because as we stand fast on the Power of the Word of God, we will see our Mighty Deliverer come through for us, and in the process, our character will come shining forth in the very image and likeness of Christ. As we walk and live out the Word in spite of and through our trials, testing and temptations we will be manifested “As He is so are we in this world.”  We will grow in Revelation through those trials that will have roots that will go deep into the soil of God’s Word in our hearts. We will say “Yes I sang about this for years, but now it’s a Rhema Word in my life, and I understand it and live it!”.  It goes on to say that as endurance, steadfastness, (steadfastness on the Word of God that it is yea and amen no matter what that thing looks like feels like, smells like, or? The Word goes on to say that in the end, we will be a people that will be perfectly and fully developed (with no defects) lacking in nothing. We will be a bride without spot, wrinkle or blemish, awaiting her bridegroom.
My friend in the end that is all that’s going to matter anyway, right, and to hear “Well done, come into all that I have prepared for you.”

Pulling Down Strongholds While Walking On!

A scripture that the Lord has been reminding me often lately is
“The weapons of my warfare are NOT carnal but Mighty before God to the pulling down of strongholds” and “We are not dealing with flesh and blood but Powers and principalities, and spiritual wickedness of darkness”. Boy if the body of Christ can only get that! So when your husband or wife starts yelling at you about something, or just does not do the things you know they should be doing, or the kids wake up like they have been eating sugar all night long, and won’t listen,  the boss is in a bad mood,  the girls at church that you thought were your friends are now taking  your dirty laundry all over town, etc., etc. Just remember your not dealing with flesh and blood, and your old carnal weapons like yelling back, getting even, or trying to get one up on them, etc, etc. won’t work either, cause that is exactly what the enemy wants that’s running the whole show anyway. No the weapons or your warfare, and that is exactly what it is, is warfare, with the enemy of your soul, that is looking to take you down any way he can. No, your weapons are your sword which is the Word of God. Your weapons are your shield which is your faith in Christ Jesus. Your weapons are the breast-plate of righteousness, which is right standing and right doing in Christ Jesus no matter what comes against you. Doing what you know is right in the sight of Jesus Christ, no matter what the other person is doing. Your weapon is your shoes of peace, keeping on you the peace of God in your heart and mind, trusting Him to work it out, and not lose your cool. Being strong in the Lord and in the Power of His Might and standing steadfast against the wiles of the enemy to the pulling down of strongholds. In dealing with people, you may have to shut your eyes and repeat these scriptures to yourself and then ask Holy Spirit to give you wisdom in the situation and to see it from His eyes.

So Now that you’ve enlisted in the army of God, go forth with His Might and Power and endure and conquer, like a good soldier for the Lord.
For He is coming back soon and His reward is with Him!

A Word for Our Generation and Time

As I look around me, I see so much Idolatry in our land. The worship of business ventures, different computer venues, different kinds of sports, even the worship of one’s own body, and even the way many dress, along with so many other things. The list today goes on and on.

This has become a generation that for the most part, that has made themselves into gods, and has not submitted to the God who created them, to begin with. Now there is nothing wrong with business ventures, sports, working out etc. etc. But when we do not take the time to give our Lord the due respect in regards to what we are undertaking and seek His face concerning it, along with putting Him first place, then we have to consider if we have not put it before our relationship with Christ Jesus.

It’s easy to get caught up in the ongoing pull of these things upon our lives that never seem to stop. The carrots at the end of those rainbows never seem to have an end, but a continuance of the illusions that we will possess when once we get there.  The Word of God says that we are to have no other gods before Him, none. He is to be first place, and share that place with nothing and no one, ever!  We are also told that we are to remember that it is He who gives us the power to produce wealth, so as to confirm His covenant with our forefathers David.

Many of these areas can and are a calling from God on people’s lives, and can be used to bring Glory to God.  If we let Him lead every step of the way, we will find our way blessed beyond measure, and the calling of it will bring many to the feet of Jesus. It’s when we make a god out the call, and forget to acknowledge that the One who gave us the ability, favor, strength and wisdom to begin with.

Much of this generation has become a generation that has more faith in themselves, rather than their God. When we step over into this area, we have stepped over into an area that God cannot bless. Again it is He who has given us the ability to produce the victory needed, in whatever area it is we are endeavoring to achieve progress. So does it not make sense to give Him the glory due Him? Many people live in the illusion that they have created. Thinking that it is they that are holding everything together and making it all work out. When in fact, in any moment the very breath on their lips could stop, and they could not take any of that with them, not even their excuses.

To know one more day in itself, and each and every day that we are given, is a gift from God. All the money fame and fortune in itself cannot buy someone one more day, when God say’s it’s time to come home, you’re going home, like it or not!. So why do people fight to acknowledge Him, to begin with, and not give Him the glory due Him from beginning to end? Is it not better to end one’s life knowing that you will hear “Well done my faithful servant, you have been faithful and will be rewarded accordingly.”

This has become a generation where ‘people have become gods in themselves, holding a form of godliness yet denying the power thereof, are actually opening themselves to greater disillusionments and deceptions, and a road that actually goes nowhere In the end. The Word says God is not mocked, what a man sows that also is what he shall reap. In the end, we shall all get our due rewards, whether it be for good or for evil. Without true submission to the one and only God, Christ Jesus, people are just looking to fill up the voids within their lives, with that will only disappear in a short time.

Greed, anger, selfishness and manipulation is also on that road which only destroys everything in its way in the end. Only God Himself, through the power of the Holy Spirit, can fill one’s life. Knowing the presence and the power of the love of Christ through a relationship with Holy Spirit goes beyond any joy anyone can find anywhere else. Anything else is superficial outward allusions that will not satisfy in the long run.

It’s building one’s house upon the sand, some doing their Sunday duty to the form of godliness they have created for themselves. A house built upon sand cannot last, no matter how strong it seems, or how beautiful it is. When one thinks that they have achieved their goals by their hands and efforts, in reality, they have built the tower of Babel and that tower will eventually fall, as they have forgotten their God in the process. Even much of the church of today is still eating baby food, by simply doing what they believe is their duty to get them into heaven and look good on earth, where in fact their entire life is a spiritually lie before God.

So much of the church are still trying to keep up with the latest fad in so many areas of their lives and create seeker friendly buildings so that they look good to the world.  The Word makes it absolutely clear that you cannot be friends with the world and be a friend of God at the same time. God makes it clear that without “Holiness no man shall see God.” This is not yesterday’s Word, this is the Word that changes not, and is the same today, yesterday and forever.

Holy is Holy yesterday, today and tomorrow. If we could not say with a clear conscience that Jesus would sit and watch it, then we should not either, If Jesus wouldn’t listen to it, then we should not either. If Jesus wouldn’t go there, do that, or dress like that, then we shouldn’t either. Is He in heaven that way? Then it shouldn’t be that way you’re your life either! You won’t take excuses to heaven with you either. In fact, if you have the Holy Spirit then you are subjecting Him to all you do, say, watch and go because He lives within you.

This is all under the heading of idolatry because if we can’t give it up, give it to God, make Him first place, then it’s an idol and it must go..  Ezekiel chapter one verse twenty says’ Where ever the spirit was about to go, they would go in that direction. And the wheels rose close beside them; for the spirit of the living being was in the wheels. Whenever those went, these went; and whenever those stood still, these stood still. And whenever those rose from the earth, the wheels rose close beside them; for the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels. The wheel here is the soul of man, and the spirit spoken about is the Holy Spirit.

We are to be as one with the Holy Spirit so that we are conscious of every move He desires to make, as He moves only for our good, and the glory of the Lord. When we allow Him to direct our steps, we cannot fail, and all that we put our hands and hearts too will not fail. Our land cannot live in idolatry any longer, the sand in the hourglass is up. It is time for genuine repentance that will user in a third great awakening that will last until the return of Christ. It is time for the church to move into the place that it is called to be in, in this final hour. It’s time for the church to take its place in genuine repentance and holiness before God. Walking in the light of His glory and power, Church arise, and become the leader God has called you to be clothed in all that He is, and He has called you to be.

Psalms 91

Psalms ninety-one is one of the most beautiful and effective psalms you can pray. Psalms ninety-one is most useful when we confess it as a prayer, rather than just read it. It starts out by saying that we dwell in the secret place of the Most High.

As we seek the Lord for wisdom into the scriptures, we receive enlightenment as to the depth of its meaning. The Word also tells us that deep calls unto deep. This also refers to the deep and hidden meaning in the Word of God, which always delights the heart of the Lord to reveal to us the fullness of what He is trying to say to us so that the Truth can set us free. As I read Psalms ninety-one, I can see that the Secret Place referred to here, is the powerful presence of the Most High God.

As we dwell in His presence, and step into Him, and make a choice to stay there the entire day, no matter what comes our way, we will find that we can stay stable in who He is in us. We can stay stable on what the Word say’s about us and our situations. We can stay fixed under the shadows of the Almighty. Our Almighty God has already defeated Him, so no matter what comes our way, as long as we stay close by His side it cannot harm us.

He tells us to say of the Lord, no matter what we are going through, “that He is our Refuge and our Fortress. He is our God, and on Him alone do we lean and rely, and in Him we confidently trust!” We can speak it to our circumstances, and to whatever darkness may be trying to overtake us. We are to speak it out loud, even when we don’t feel like it most.

The Word tells us that as we continue to lean on Him and confidently trust Him, that which we see, feel and hear around us must change and come into alignment with the Word of God, that we are trusting in. We are hidden in Him in the Secret Place of His powerful presence. We then receive the promises of His Word to us that He will deliver us from any snares that the enemy has laid up for us.Verse four tells us that as He delivers us, He will cover us under His wings, and there we can trust Him and find refuge from any storm that comes our way.

Like a mother hen that takes care of her chicks, He will take care of those that are His.  His Word is our faithfulness, our shield and our protection from any storm.  We are not to be afraid of anything that comes to us by night, or in the darkness of life, or even that which surprises us in broad daylight, or in our face. The Word tells us that fear is a spirit, and we do not have a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind, as we have the mind of Christ, and the wisdom of God flow through us when we have Him in our hearts and lives.

We can have faith that nothing can come near us when we put our trust in Him and His Word. Only a spectator shall we be, as we will be inaccessible in the secret place of His Presence, as we witness the reward of the wicked. It is as we are in His house inside of Him and safe and warm by the fireplace of love, as we watch the storm take place outside our window.  Why? Because we have made Him our refuge. In Him and in His presence is our dwelling place.

We stay safe in His peace, and in His joy, and all that He is in and through us. Therefore, of course, no evil can befall us, or any calamity come near us, as He had already defeated him two thousand years ago.  He reassures us that He has given His angels charge over us. They accompany us, and defend us, and preserve us, even though we can’t see them most of the time, yet they are there. They are our ministering spirits sent by Him to minister to us, those that are heirs of Salvation. It tells us that they will bear us up in their hands, and they will be at work in our lives on a daily basis, as we stay in Christ Jesus.  We are then assured that we will be the victors and overcomers and we will tread upon the head of the enemy and trample him under our feet. As long as we continue to set our love upon Him.  He tells us in His Psalms, and He will deliver us and set us above our circumstances.

We are to know His name. He is El-Shaddai the God that is more than enough. He is Jehovah Jireh, our provider, Jehovah Shalom our peace, Jehovah Rapha, our healer, and  He is our righteousness. He is the great I AM and the power to silence the enemy in our midst, as we trust in the power of His name over our lives. We are to remember His mercy, love and kindness that He has shown us so many times in the past, and know that He will not forget us, or forsake us, as we continue to trust and rely on Him, no matter what things look like.

The power of His Word is above all.  In that moment when all of life seems to be coming down around you, you are to call upon Him, and He will answer you. He will be with you, as you are in Him and He is in you. He will deliver you and honor you. We can stand on His Word that with long life we can be satisfied, and we will see His Salvation. His name is Jesus Christ (Yeshua).

Our Priestly Duties Over Our Nation

Mordecai said to Esther, “And who knows whether you have not attained Royalty for such a time as this?” OK Child of the Living God, you also are royalty, and perhaps you were born in your generation for such a time as this. Jesus Christ made it clear in His Word who we are, and what our duties are as part of His Royal Kingdom.  1 Peter 2 v.5 say’s we are like living stones, a spiritual house, a holy dedicated and consecrated priesthood. We are to offer up spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable and pleasing to God through Jesus Christ.  In verse 9 our Lord calls us a chosen race, a royal priesthood, and a dedicated nation. We are God’s own purchased, special people. God is looking for Abrahams that will intercede for their nation, even seeking God to spare their city for 10- Righteous people. Moses sought God time after time for the Israelites.

Esther fasted, prayed, interceded and sought God for the life of her people. Many of the prophets like Daniel, Ezekiel and Jeremiah were intercessors and spokesmen in their time and generation for their people and their nation. Joseph became a pillar for God for a time when his nation went into famine and want.  Deborah was a prophetess who led Israel to victory over Canaanites. God wants Deborahs for this generation as well. This is the season that God is raising up Mighty Women Warriors to bare the fruit from heavens seed that was planted within them and bring forth the manifestation of the Victories Warriors that was saved to come forth in such a time as this.

In Isaiah God said, “Put Me in remembrance; let us plead and argue together. Set forth your case, that you may be justified’. Putting God in remembrance and pleading and interceding before God is what an intercessor does and as Children of the Living God, we are all called to be intercessors. Intercessors are watchmen on the wall, they have the eyes and ears of Christ and see what he sees, and hear what He hears. They have Eagle vision and can see far off in the spiritual realm and put it together with what is happening in the natural realm, and hold the roar of the Lion of the Tribe over the plans of the enemy. We are also called to be God’s spokesmen and His mouthpiece.
The book of Jeremiah is also for you. The Lord has put forth His hand and touched your mouth. He has put His Words in your mouth. As part of a royal priesthood, He has appointed you to oversight of the nations and the kingdoms. You are called to root out and pull down, to destroy and overthrow, but also to build and to plant. Jesus has breathed His Holy Spirit within you and me, to be His agents in the earth today and allow His Spirit to live through us like He lived through Jesus. We are His hands, heart, mouth, ears and eyes extended today to all who need a living Word or a living touch from His hands. We are created in His image, and He re-creates again and again as we speak His Word over our life and in our land.  He promises in His Word that He will watch over His Word to perform it. He does not want to use a rock or else He would have put His Spirit in a rock. He wants to use you and me, and continue pouring forth His Resurrection Power through us today. It is time to place as priority what Our Lord and Christ deems as priority in our lives, cities, and nation. “If my people who are called by my Name will humble themselves and pray and require of necessity my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land”. If we are His people, then we are to humble ourselves and pray.

Too Late On The Time Clock

Too late on the time clock, or is it? The sand in the hourglass is almost gone.
The clock is ready to strike midnight, and it’s 2 minutes to twelve.
The day is almost gone, as the sun has already gone down.
I see a door above me closing, slowly but surely.2
All the generations that are past were many, are we truly the last generation?
Are we the best wine saved for last?

Each generation was given a little bit of truth about each piece of Armor, and another page into the depths of God’s heart was turned and with each generation He went a little bit deeper. So are all the pages allotted for mankind on this side of heaven been given?
Compromising the Gospel for the sake of comfort, finances, relationship and personal gain is being offered to many, so who’s selling their birthright for a little bit of homemade soup?

Only a little bit of sin, who will notice, who will see it, after all, grace covers it! No one knows my heart; no one can read my heart, besides I can repent later. I can deal with it at another time. The only problem is who knows for sure that one will see the dawning of another day!
But in the pages of the book that was written by fire, it reads “Do you not know that just a little bit of leaven will ferment the whole lump of dough? We are told to purge and clean out the old leaven that you may be fresh (new) dough, still uncontaminated for Christ. Well it’s talking about bread, right? Or is it?
The pages now turn to 1 Corinthians 4 verse 5- and I see a light from heaven shining on the page. It reads,” For He will both bring to light the secret things that are (now hidden) in the darkness and disclose and expose the (secret) aims (motives and purposes) of hearts. Then every man will receive his due commendation from God.” So it’s secret things, so deep into the darkness that no one can see them, including my aims, all my motives and even my purposes for doing them? NO one can see, no one can know, no one can hear,  oh but One. The Holy One that can see all things, even those things deep into the darkness. The Holy One that can hear that that which is not even whispered. The Holy One that knows all motives, aims, and purposes of all hearts. The Fire of God will test and try each of every man’s works, looking at the motives, aims, and purposes of hearts, what will burn up, and what will last through His Holy Fire? Each has an excuse, a debate, a reasoning! Will they hold up under the coals of fire from the Altar?

So we will stand before Him, with Holy Garments, and will there be any stains on them? Will there be any wrinkles in your white linen?
Will you hear well done, my faithful servant, or will you hear “why did you bury your talents, what did you do with them?”
When asked “What have you done with your days on earth, did you live them for you, or did you live them for me? What will be your answer?
Will there be a screen up on a cloud, or will there be an Angel with a pen and pad, or perhaps a light that will shine into the heart of man and show all, what will there be? Perhaps only some things will show on heaven’s video that one has not repented of? But what about Luke 4 verse 2 and 3, that say’s” Nothing is so closely covered up that it will not be revealed, or hidden that it will not be known. Whatever you have spoken in the darkness shall be heard and listened to in the light, and what you have whispered in people’s ears and behind closed doors will be proclaimed upon the housetops.” So when Jesus appears on the scene, all darkness will become as light, and all doors will be as if there were none at all. Nothing will be hidden, all things big and small will be revealed, and their motives, intents, and purposes.
So where is one’s hope? Is repentance a word that has become obsolete today, or is it still fresh every morning, like Fuller’s Soap ready to wash one clean when used properly. Our hope and faith is in the Power of the Blood of the Lamb, no other! Calling upon the One that holds the Name of all names, a name of Power and authority is our only hope. As we yield to receive the enlightenment of where we have missed it, why and how, and confess it as sin we now are placing ourselves on the path of life. Prostrating oneself before the Mercy Seat of Christ and allowing your heart, mind and all that you are to be washed by the Blood of the Lamb is the only way to come up clean. Completely clean as if it all never was, to begin with, and shine forth as the precious jewel that you were created to be, and wearing white garments that glitters white as if what was, is only seen through the image of the One that is the Christ.
Yes, we will walk in the Revelation of one that is Sanctified, purified, consecrated, separated and set apart for the One that we have been waiting for to begin with, our Precious Bridegroom.  We will walk as one. We are to be one with the Father of all creation and one with the Son who took our place on the cross so that we can know His Eternal Life within us.  We will be one with the Holy Spirit of God who lives inside us till the end. Christ in us the hope of Glory, so that we may share His Glory as He lives in us and through us daily. United with the Holy One, so that the world may know that He truly lives today, as He lives His Resurrection Glory through us manifested the reality of the true Sons of God. Yes, it is too late on the time clock to play games, to hold back, to procrastinate and have our way and want it blessed.  Yes, it is not I who live anymore, but Christ who lives within me, that truly we would manifest Christ in us the hope of Glory.  The Father is looking for the Manifestations of the Sons of God, so who will be the first to come forth out of their grave clothes? Will it be you?

The Waters are Coming from Both Directions

I started to write a lesson, but I finding myself in my Prophetic Mantle- so I warn you, as you read this be ready for the glory of God to fall on you powerfully)
As I feel the Lord rising up so strong in me these days, I want to share a word that I feel is not only for me but for the body of Christ (Well all those that will receive it) So this is what we will be focusing on this week.

This is a vision that was given to me this morning as I woke up, as He speaks to me and shows me things many times as I awake in the morning.  This has been growing in me, yet as I start to write this, the Glory the Lord is so strong on me, that I am finding it is hard to write.
Let’s start with 1Kings 18v 42 it say’s “Elijah went to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up and looked and said, there is nothing. Elijah said, go again, seven times. And the seventh time the servant said, a cloud as small as man’s hand is arising out of the sea. Soon they heard the sound of an abundance of rain. Elijah also was a man who sought God and prayed earnestly, and it did not rain, when he prayed again, the heaven opened up and there came down an abundance of rain. Now bear with me as I’m going somewhere. In Ezekiel 47 v 3-it talks about waters that went ankle deep. In verse 4 it talks about waters that finally reached the loins. In verse 5 it says, that the waters had risen again, now these waters were to swim in. It was a river that could not be passed over or through. The waters were over his head; they were covering and saturating every part of his being. He was completely immersed in the waters and was freely swimming in them.

The Vision
The Rains

Now as I am a visionary, I see the vision of those that have been determined and persistent to see, know, taste, live in and move in the Glory of God in their life time, in the fullness that was promised them in the Word.  As they have persistently gone out time after time, looking for, seeking and longing for the Abundance of Rain from the Portals of Heaven. They have come back saying, ‘that was nice, but that’s not enough, because I know in my spirit, that’ there is MORE! There is more promised to me! I know there is MORE Rain coming!. There is an abundance of Rain yet to be poured out, and I want to be in the center of it. I want to stand under the Portals of Heaven and be positioned when the Final Outpouring of Rains come, yes I want to stand under that cloud of Glory”. I hear for all of us that are saying that the sound of the Abundance of Rain is on its way. I hear it getting stronger and stronger! I hear the sound of the heavy rains, rumbling in the heavens above.
No sense In getting out the Umbrella’s to shield you a bit from these rains, because they are only coming to the thirsty and the dry, and those that are positioning themselves to get rained on, and don’t care how much they get wet!.
What kind of Rain is it?
We’re in the days of Joel 2 my friend, and Joel 2 promises us the former rains. You may be thinking that those rains are a long time gone in your life time… Well the former rains have been saved up for such a time as this, and the former rains are coming, and there coming hard and fast. For those that are truly ready, the full book of Acts is about ready to be released and poured out now! Now if that’s not enough, the Latter Rains are coming as well!
Hosea 6 v 3- says’ Yes, let us know (recognize, be acquainted with, and understand) Him; let us be zealous to know the Lord (to appreciate, give heed to, and cherish Him). His gong forth is prepared and certain as the dawn, and He will come to us as the (heavy) rain, as the latter rain that waters the earth.
So the promise is for those that are prepared, and it is certain, for those that are zealous to know the Lord. Those who are fully ready to abandon themselves, fully and completely over to the Lord, to fully know Him deeply and intimately. Those that are fully ready to be completely acquainted with all of His ways, and walk in them. Those that love understand and appreciate Him and are ready to come forth as His Holy Bride; they will hear the sound of the Abundance of Rain from the Portals of Heaven. Saints of God, the heavy rains are coming. The Latter Rains, yet to be manifested on the earth. The goodness of God yet to be manifested by any man, are ready to be poured out.

Ask for the Rain!

So ask for the Rain, and get ready to get soaked!. Ask and keep on asking, seek and keep on seeking, knock and keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you, and out of that door will come forth an Abundance of Rain from the heavens itself. The door and the gates of heaven are about to fling wide open for all those that are truly thirsty and know that there is more.  The showers are coming for all those that are ready for more. Those that are saying,” Is that all there is? No, I don’t think so! I hear the sound of lots more rain coming, oh yea a lot more rain is on its way, were nowhere near done, and that’s not all there is, there is more, and it’s on its way, and I’m ready for it!”
We all think “If I could only walk in all the Apostles did in the Book of Acts.” And the Word promises His children that before the Lord returns, they will because He is coming for a Glorious Church, a manifestation of the sons and daughters of God, a Bride without spot, wrinkle or blemish. But what if He also gives us more. As in Eph. Says’” Abundantly above and beyond all that we say or think, beyond our highest prayers, hopes and dreams, and give us the Latter Rains as well.
Well, the Word promises the “El-Shaddai Outpouring,” the outpouring of the God that is more than enough!” He does not just promise us more than enough of things etc.  But more than enough of Him! We need more than enough of Him! He is all that we need!  The Latter Glory of the House is coming, and with it, as the Word promises, comes the Lord of hosts, His Peace and His Prosperity, only the kind that that only Our Lord can give.
The book of Haggai Chapter 2 v. 9, talks about the Latter Glory of the House is greater than the Former. Well does not the Word talk in shadows and types many times? And does not the Word say that the best wine was saved until last? Do you think the winding up of the generations of time will be any different?
So what will we see?

As a visionary, and as the Holy Spirit showed me even concerning my own ministry, this morning, I saw the outpouring of the Former Rain, and the outpouring of the Latter Rain, all coming down together, and a rain that never stops, never stops. I saw a people drenched, soaked and saturated in that outpouring of Rains, coming down straight from the north winds. It was coming down straight from the heavens above us, as Angles ministered these special gifts to us, and through us. These waters filled us up and then poured out of us even as an Artesian Well. 

Waters over my head!

I see waters to swim in coming passed our ankles, where most have stayed. Still, others have gone to where it was up to their loins, and others brave enough to go up to their waist. A few have swum over their heads a time or two. But these waters will not recede, nor will they stop filling up, bubbling up, springing up a well unto everlasting life. These waters will be fresh, clean, clear waters to swim in, waters from the heaven’s itself. So I saw the Former and Latter Rains from above coming down in an Avalanche of an Outpouring from Heaven, the rivers of water rising up to meet the rains, till it became waters to swim in.  So the heavy rains fell and kept falling from above, while the rivers started to come in and rise up to the ankles, waist and then over one’s head. All this happening and kept happening all at the same time.
Now as I know God is speaking this for me, and Heart of Mercy Ministries He is also offering it to you too if you want it!
I saw all of this leading to the Rivers of Revelation, at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb that is coming for His Bride that the Bridegroom has been waiting for a long long, time.

What else is coming!

In all these waters, what the crawling locust has eaten will be restored. What the swarming locust has eaten will be restored. What the hopping locust has eaten will be restored. What the stripping locust has eaten will be restored, and every tear will be wiped away. The threshing floors shall be full of grain, and the vats shall overflow with juice and oil. You shall praise and be satisfied, and you shall know that He is in your midst. You shall worship and be full of Joy!
What must I do?

Joel 2 tells us to sanctify a fast. Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound an alarm. Turn and keep on coming with all your heart to the Lord. Come with fasting, with weeping and mourning, until every hindrance is removed and broken.  Rend Your hearts, Repent, Blow the trumpet in Zion; Sanctify yourself, and consecrate the vessel that the Lord has given you to live in, as a  pure and holy vessel, fit for use, only for the Kingdom of God.
Come to Him, call upon Him, cry onto Him, let Him be your priority and put Him first place in your life, until you hear the rains until you see the rivers of water start to fill up the house, and rise.
Come because the Best Wine is about ready to be poured out!

The Warning!

Now I did not see this for everybody, as in the vision I also saw pockets of areas where the ground stayed dry, sandy and as a desert with no water. These were the people that were blind and chose to stay blind, deaf and chose to stay deaf, hard-hearted and chose to stay hard-hearted, even those that were doing ministry for their own benefit and gain.

Again I want to tell you that as I am writing this, I can barely write, as the Glory of the  Lord is so very heavy upon me, something I did not expect it to be so awesome as I started to write… As I am writing this the Glory of the Lord is so very strong on me, so please take this seriously.
So now be still, and know that He is G_D! He is El-Shaddai the G_D that is MORE than enough! Shuuuu now listen for the rumbling of the rains and feel His Holy Glory fall on you. Close your eyes, and sit in His Presence and feel the Rivers start to flow and rise. It’s all coming saints of God for those that are clothed in Holy Garments for such a time as this.

Only the serious can apply!

The Great Commission

The Great Commission, is a command, not a suggestion and so where does it all start? Well, it starts in the Old Testament! Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil, to open heaven’s gates, and to go back up to His Heavenly Father and send us the Holy Spirit of God to continue His works through us and the greater works that he said we would do by His Spirit within us, after the great outpouring. The O/T is filled with prophecies concerning the coming of the Messiah, but we know that His Kingdom continues through us after His Resurrection and He ascended to heaven. The prophet Isaiah talks why Jesus came in Chapter 61. “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted. He sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison of the eyes of those that are bound, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. He talked about granting the oil of Joy to those who mourn, and garments of praise instead of heavy burdened and failing spirits. Isaiah talks about rebuilding and rising up.


It all came to pass in Luke 4 when Jesus was in the synagogue and was given the book of the Prophet Isaiah and Jesus turned to Isa. 61 and then proclaimed to heaven, hell, and all those living,(  I’m paraphrasing )”I’m here!!! Devil I’m the one the Prophet was talking about! I’m the Messiah, and I have come to destroy your works and take back the keys of the Kingdom that you stole from my people! I gave it to them, not to you; now you’re going to give it back!!!” And so He quoted on decreeing, declaring, proclaiming and prophesying, “The Spirit of the Lord IS upon Me because He HAS anointed Me to preach the good news to the poor. He HAS sent Me to announce release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to send forth as delivered those who are oppressed, (those that are bruised, crushed and broken down by calamity.  I’m here to proclaim the accepted and acceptable year of the Lord.” Jesus spent three yrs. doing exactly that, through rain, shine, accusations, etc., the disciples walking with Him and cheering Him on, or no one walking with Him, and having to do it alone, feeling like it, not feeling like it some mornings, He still went and obeyed the Great Commission. Jesus ran His race and finished His course, and won the prize for you and me, which was the gates of heaven to open wide for us, and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Now He’s at the right hand of the Father- So now what?


Well before Jesus was taken up, He tells everyone not to be sad because He was sending another Comforter, the Holy Spirit. He would not only be with us but be IN us. He said now with Him IN you all the time, you will do what I did, and even greater works. He said in Mark 16,” And these signs will accompany those who believe. In my Name they will drive out demons; they will speak with new languages; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink anything deadly it will not harm them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will get well. The disciples went out right away preaching everywhere, while the Lord KEPT working with them and confirming the message by the attesting signs and miracles that CLOSELY accompanied it.
Now we are in the days when the sand in the hourglass is winding down, and we are watching the pages of the book of Revelation turning one after the other. Remember we are not waiting on Jesus, He said: “It is finished!” Jesus is waiting on us! The Holy Spirit is IN you waiting on you! What’s left to be done? Well only the accumulation of Isa. 61, Luke 4 and Mark 16 all coming together and exploding inside of you. And for you to go, knowing that the same Lord that followed the disciples in the early days, is the same Lord that is ready to follow you with sign and wonders following, all to His Glory and His Holy Name!
O.K.  and the church just broke out of the building, Yaaa!
Are you ready to get outside the box and do “Tent Revivals?”
Give me a call!
Pastor Sarah Jansson- Heart of Mercy Ministries
An Apostolic/Prophetic Ministry


Go Lower Still!
So you say that you’re submitted and yielded to me?
Lower Still!
You Say that you have gone deep!
Well now is the time and the hour that I AM calling you to go deeper still!
Deep is calling unto Deep, and Deep is calling you to go Deeper still.
I am calling My Bride
Do you not hear the Sound of the Spirit and the sound of the Shofar?
I am calling My Remnant Bride
Go down down down deep deep down in My Spirit.
Go lower still!

Allow yourself to be taught by the Rehma Revelation of My Word
Go in and go high with Me.
Lay down all your spiritual idols, books, props, and all the people that you look up too!
All the knowledge that you have learned and all you think you still need to learn, And all your understanding of it.
Lay down all that you are doing and get with me.
Lay yourself down on the alter, that is prepared for you
Who you think you are, where you’re at, who you were, and where you’re going, and how to get there.
Lay it all down on my alter.
Let me burn up all that is flesh, and I will leave the gold of my heavenly
Impartation there.

For this is the Season for My Bride to Arise!
I do not desire for My Bride to lag behind, or go in one direction when I AM actually going in another.
I desire for My Bride to walk with me, where I AM now, and where I AM going.
Yes I in you and you in Me, with Me, and Me with you, always!
So go Lower Still!
Deeper Yet! Yes Deeper into the Holy Place! The Holy of Holies.
I AM calling My Bride to a greater surrender, and a greater Yielding to My Spirit.
So that My ear is right up against your mouth and you can hear My voice clearly.
So that you can feel the very breath of My Sprit.
So that you can feel a deeper burning of My fire within you.
Be not afraid to go where I AM as you are not alone.
My Spirit is with you always!
My Spirit is in you!
The outcome is that you will be prepared like Ester in fragrant oils
And you will come forth as that Glorious Remnant Bride of Christ!
Oh Special One, Repentance is not yesterday’s word, but tomorrow’s

Repentance and going low are a part of one package.

Humility and going Deeper, are a part the same package.

Holiness is not something that has gone by with yesterday’s pages,
but is a progressive work that I desire to do in you, to bring you to the perfection of the Precious Bride that your Beloved Bridegroom desires..
Presumption is as dirty water in the Body Christ
Go Deep into the Fire of God until you understand by true revelation,
That I AM God and you are not!

But I AM God in you, and I AM God through you as you allow all the dross
(As I see it, and not you) to be burned up, and all the spots, stains, wrinkles, blemishes, and chains, to be removed, burned up and eliminated from your life.
Remember on that day every knee will bow, every tongue will confess that I AM Lord!

I will come as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the King of kings, and the Lord of all!

I AM the same today as I was yesterday, and I will be tomorrow.

I did not call my Bride to conform to today’s modern worldly ways, so  to pull the church in to the Body, but for the Bride to come out from amongst them and Be ye separate, and allow the Holy Glory that consumes you to come forth.

Repentance and Humility is the key that unlocks My Presence and My Blessings in your life, in your family, and in your nation.
The beauty of My Holiness and My Purity  will be the outcome.
The glorious white garments that I speak about, is a deep  inward work that you allow Me to do within you, according to My understanding, that will shine forth for all the world to see.

I see  the beginning from the end, and I made the end even before I made the beginning As I know all things, behind, present and future.
I have made every man/women in every generation and I have been in every generation and even before mankind was a twinkle in My eye, and yet I AM into Everlasting to Everlasting.
Even before the worlds were formed and yet I will continue long after the worlds come to and end.

I AM THAT I AM!- I AM THAT I AM- I AM THAT I AM!  and I always will be!

There  is the place where My Mercy flows unending, even into the darkest darkness, and the deepest void,  and breaks the strongest chain, beyond that which My Bride has yet to walk in, but this is the place I desire for My Bride to be before I come back for her.
The Power of My Blood flows intertwined with My Mercy, and My Mercy
Always holds the Power of My Blood
It is my desire for you to understand the magnitude of what that means.

That I AM God, and you are not!
It is the He in you, and not the you!

It is the He, the ME Through you, the Great I AM, as the you die to the flesh and allow the Mighty One to shine through, it is not the you.
So the Sacrificial Alter is necessary at this time, as Heavens Army awaits My Glorious coming, and is already prepared, so must you be!
The Sound of the Shofar is calling forth a Deeper Surrender!
A Deeper Yielding to the Holy Spirit.
Remember He is a HOLY Spirit!, and He is coming for a HOLY Bride!
The Bride of Christ, in Purity and Holiness.
The work is not yours, the work is mine, but the yielding and the surrender is yours to do, yet even with that you need My Spirit .
So Church did you go low yet?
The Spirit of the Lord is calling you to go Lower Still, Deeper Yet, in this coming Day and hour.
Do you think your deep My Beloved?
Deeper Still, Desire more Passion, desire more Fire

I will go with you, I AM in you!
You will emerge as My Glorious Bride My Beloved! My Image, My likeness,
The One I have desired yet even from the beginning of time!
We will be together from Eternities to Eternities, and you will rule and reign With Me, My Beloved Bride of Christ!
Scriptures on the Bride of Christ and her Bridegroom

Are you Cold???
Warm???One foot in, one foot out???
Hot-Passionate and on Fire for God, and all that concerns the Heart of the Father????
Let those who have ears, hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches!



We need to understand who we are, the purpose that we were created for, and what we are to do to in life, by going to the Word of God. So where do we start saints of God, Isaiah chapter one verse eighteen to twenty, says, “Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord. Though our sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken it”.

What God is saying is,” Come to me now, let’s sit together and talk about it. Let’s take a good look at all the different paths that you have taken in life, all the choices that you have made, and all the things that you have done, and all the desires that you have followed, don’t you realize that you were a slave to all those things that you are now ashamed of.” “Let’s look at it together, what benefit did you ultimately derive out of those choices that you don’t want anyone to even know about today?”

Romans chapter six verse sixteen tells us, ‘Do you know that if you continually surrender yourself to anyone to do his will, you are the slaves of him whom you obey, whether that be to sin which leads to death, or to obedience which leads to righteousness, (right doing and right standing with God) Verse twenty and twenty-one, “For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. But then what benefit (return) did you get from the things of which you are now ashamed? (None) for the end of those things is death. So first thing is to go to God and get our slate clean. Romans chapter six verse nineteen tells us to “Repent’.

So let’s look at the biblical definition of the word ‘repent”. Verse nineteen says’ to 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. So it’s going in another direction, that is God’s direction according to the Word of God.

Now you can only do this by the help of the Holy Spirit who is your helper. That is why He has come, that is to convict the world of sin and righteousness. So as you ask and yield yourself to Him, He will help you out of sin and many times its consequences, and set up upon the right path, and bring you into right standing with the Father through Jesus Christ and the Blood He shed on the cross for you that flows from the Mercy Seat even now.  He promises that spiritual refreshing and recovery will come from the Presence of the Lord, and you will be revived again, alive again as if you have never sinned.

O.K. so you want to go to the next level? Do you think you’re ready? O.k. Well let me get my search light from the back of this cloud here, and let’s take a look.
Well, this blog my friend is coming from a deeper place that the Holy Spirit is taking me through these days. What is the first and foremost present-day ministry of Jesus Christ? It is burned flesh on His Holy Altar!

O.k. let’s look at scriptures. Genesis 22 verse 6 says “Then Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering, and laid it on the shoulders of Isaac, his son; and he took the fire (that is, the firepot) in his own hand, and a knife and the two of them went on together.” Verse 7,” And Isaac said to Abraham, My father! And he said, Here I am, my son. (Isaac) said, See, here are the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt sacrifice? “Verse 8 “Abraham said, My son, God will provide Himself a lamb for a burnt offering. So the two of them went on together. Verse 9,” When they came to the place of which God had to told him Abraham built an altar there; then he laid the wood in order and bound Isaac, his son, and laid him on the altar on the wood”. Now we know the rest of the story, and that this was a shadow and type of the offering Father God would have to do to his Son Jesus so that you and I could know and live in their Salvation and know Eternal Life in and with Christ Jesus, forever and always.

O.k. Big Question! Is God done with altars and sacrifice? Actually not!!!
The sacrifice that He is looking for today as the Holy Spirit put it to me is, “Burnt flesh on the Alter”.  Now here’s a shadow and type for you. Like Isaac, he knew there was going to be a sacrifice. He knew there was going to be flesh burning, but certainly, not for a moment did he even think that it was going to be his. A lamb would be provided. A lamb would come from somewhere before they arrived. Something else was going to lay on that altar, but not for a moment did he even think it was going to be him!. So when they finally arrived and his father said,”O.K. son now get on the altar,” knowing all the while in this particular case God would provide Himself a lamb, or raise Isaac from the dead, whichever! Isaac probably thought “You got to be kidding! Did you drink too much wine last night? O.K. O.K. now wait a minute, there’s got to be a lamb here somewhere! Here kitty, kitty, meow, meow, ruff, ruff, however you talk, just get over here right now, it’s going to be you, buddy, not , me! Wooo I think Daddy has gone senile or the sun got to him, he actually thinks he’s supposed to sacrifice me and forgot it’s supposed to be a lamb to sacrifice not his own son!
You Got To Be Kidding, It’s My Flesh That’s Going to Burn?

Well, we sing about it in church. We pray the scriptures on it. We quote it to our mates when were angry that them, and to our children when they won’t listen to us. We love to show everyone else how much we know on them and how powerful we are with them and can get them to bow down and obey the Word that comes out of our mouths. Well what about when God places a spiritual mirror in front of you, and say’s “O.K. now speak”. Your thinking “No I’m a big time minister, you know all that I do for you, don’t you?” Look at all the people I have touched for you all through the years? Or wait a minute, I go to church every week, 2ce sometimes, even sing in the chore, take out the trash for the pastor, why even watch those nosey kids in Sunday school, so surely you don’t mean meeeee!!! After all, I’ve been a Christian for a long time now, and I Can quote a lot of scriptures by heart, and sing songs that I don’t even have to look at the songbook for, so surely you don’t mean me? Have you gone senile God?
Too much I, Too much Me, Too much Flesh!

You see God wants us on the same page with Him., not trying to get Him on our page and bless it. The Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are all on the same page. The angles are on their page, and the ones that would not be, were cast out of heaven, so what He needs now is for the children of God to get on their page and come into manifested agreement with what they are doing, seeing and saying, and when that actually happens well, wow it will amaze us to what all could be accomplished for His Kingdom Glory, and the church can actually be where they’re supposed to be when He comes back, . John 17 said “that they may be one Father as we are one, You in me and I in them”, then the world will see and know Jesus the Lord of Glory.  Well o.k. Guy’s were going to go back over Romans 6. Yea the Chapter that you only look at when you want to talk someone into Water Baptism or get someone saved. Yea you know the chapter that you feel your way beyond these days. Yea you know only give me the Glory chapters, not that one, after all, I don’t need it anymore, that one’s for babies, (or is it?). “Well were going a little deeper this time, in fact, were going very deep this time if you allow me too”. O.K. so get onto the Alter, and then when I’m done, go sit on the Potter’s Wheel, (don’t make me have to come get ya) and while you’re doing that, I’m going to go get the searchlight, the wood for the fire, the coal for your lips, fuller’s soap, and some ointment from the Heavenly Holy of Holies, and finally the Oil of Joy, and a few other oils from Heaven’s sash.” “O.K. are you ready?” “Well I hope so, I’m not sure, but here goes”.
O.k. let’s have a look at Romans 6. We were buried therefore with Him by the baptism into death, (now for a matter of time and space, because you can look up the entire chapter yourself later) skip down to “so that we too might habitually live and behave in newness of life.”
Verse 5- For if we have become one with Him by sharing a death like His, we shall also be one with Him in sharing His resurrection, by a new life lived for God) Verse 6- We know that our old (unrenewed) self was nailed to the cross with Him in order that our bodies (which is the instrument) of sin, might be made ineffective and inactive for evil, that we might no longer be the slaves of sin. Verse 7- For when a man dies, he is freed-loosed, delivered – from the power of sin. Verse 8 Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him. Verse 11- Even so consider yourselves also dead to sin and your relation to it broken, but (that you are) alive t Go living in unbroken fellowship with Him – in Christ Jesus. Verse 12- Let not sin rule in your mortal bodies, yielding to its cravings and lust and evil passions. Verse 13- Do not continue offering your bodily members to sin as instruments of wickedness. Verse 14 for sin shall not any longer exert dominion over you. Verse 16 Do you not know that if you continually surrender yourselves to anyone to do his will, you are the slaves of him whom you obey, whether that be to sin, or obedience which leads to righteousness.  Verse 18 talks about having been set free from sin, and becoming servants of righteousness, conformity to the divine will in thought, purpose, and action.
“O.K. I don’t smoke, or chew, or go with those that do- anymore! So what does that all of that in Romans have to do with me?” “Well you want to go to the next level right, and be on the front lines of the Final Wave of Glory from Heaven, right? Well then for you to go higher, I have to go deeper, understand? OK then, let me get ahold of the Fire from the Altar of Heaven, the burning coal for your lips, oh and the knife to cut out the stubborn Carnal nature that won’t burn up in the Fire, the search light, the potter’s wheel, the ointments and the heavenly oils to pour down upon you, into you and over you.  Oh and get ready for the Power of the Holy Spirit to pour out and  into you, but when you’re a dead man walking, you won’t be bragging on it, you’ll just be walking in it., because you’ll  have heart knowledge, and be spiritually grown up and understand it’s purposes. Are you ready?”
Wait a minute now, didn’t I hear you sing in church last week about “Send down the Fire Lord?” “One of my favorite songs by the way”. “Actually I’m taking the whole congregation seriously on that one by the way!.  (Be careful what you sing about)

Dead Men Walking!
Dead men walking are not concerned about (My) ministry, (MY) accomplishments, what (I) want to accomplish,  (My) calling,  (I’m) an  Evangelist, (I’m) a Prophet, teacher, Pastor. (My) Church, (My) building, (My) Pulpit, etc., etc. Dead men walking have no I’m, me, or self to be exalted.  Dead Men walking are dead. They know it is like Paul said, “It is not I who live but Christ who lives in and through me.” We are so consumed with Christ, and pleasing Him, that His desires are our desires. He so fills us up and is every part of our lives, that He is our every need and fills our every need. There is no self left, it is Christ in us the hope our Glory. It is His Resurrection Power that lives in and through us. We are not a cup of water filled with Debra, and dirt at the bottom of the glass, which pours out with every tipping of the glass. We are emptied of all that is carnal, flesh, self, and I, and it is no more I who lives but now Christ Jesus who fills and flows through us. We are not looking to share in on a little bit of the Glory and receiving recognition and an “at a boy” for what we have done and accomplished. The only that that will matter is that Christ will get the Glory, and if were seen or not seen in the process is not important at all. We can share the pulpit, the platform, and the mic. Because the only thing that matters is for Jesus to be exalted and people to be set free, and move forward in the Lord, whether it is through us or not, whether we are recognized for it or not. Death to self, means we are not talking about people and make it o.k. in the end by saying, “Well I just want you to pray for them”, and think to ourselves,”not that made it better”. It means no excuses for why we should not talk to our sister in the Lord. It means no excuses or reasoning’s for what we call the little weakness in our lives, and grace covers it all anyway. Yes, grace does cover it all, but it is not there to take advantage of so we can continue to go on sinning.

Move Over Give Me Some Room!
Well, sometimes when my husband gets into bed he says to me, “Move over give me some room” or I might say to him during the night, “move over, give me some room”. Well if we want Jesus to fill all in all in our lives, we can’t be saying when we want to have our own way in certain situations, decisions, thinking and doing, “Move over, give me some room, share some space with me, I’ll give it back to you later”. The Holy Spirit is not looking to share the house with us He wants it all, and giving it all to Him is what is best for us anyway. To live for Christ we have to get out of His way, so He can have His way, and live His way in and through our lives. Only when we give Him our all and allow Him to be all in all, are we really going to be truly happy and fulfilled anyway. He is the Potter, and we are the clay, the works of His hands. He is our Father, and we are His children.  He is our Master, Savior, Redeemer, Deliverer and Lord. He is the Way, and He knows the way, and there is no other way. The sooner we get this right, the better off we’ll be.

OUT of the Tomb- Walking in the Glory!

As we are emptied of self, we can then be truly filled with the Spirit of God. It’s not just songs to sing or a scripture to recite, but a yielding to the one who lives within us for the very reason of living the life of Christ through us. As we learn to yield our spirit, minds, will, emotions and our bodies to the Holy Spirit of God within us, then we will truly walk in the higher life, and u Spirit truly can trust us with His Revelations, visions and His ministry to the body and to the world, because he won’t be trusting it to children still sucking on milk, but those that have matured into the manifestations of the Sons of God, and will fulfill His purposes and not their own. We want the Glory, but most of us don’t want to pay the price for the Glory. We have to be vessels that He can trust the Glory too, because He does not cast His pearls before swine, or give them to little children to play with and lose or misuse it.
Last of the Last of Days…

My friend, we are in the last of the last of days and our Lord is looking for those that are truly serious and not just playing church. He is looking for those that He can truly trust with His Holy Presence, in a great and final wave of an awakening
That will shake both the church and the world before He comes back. If we say “Yes I want to be part of that Great End time Army that will stand at the forefront of what He is about to do on the earth today, then we need to be able to say and manifest  as Paul said,” It is not I who live, but truly it is Christ who lives in me”.
Being molded and re-molded on the Potter’s Wheel, laying oneself on the altar and allowing the Fire of the Holy Spirit to burn all that which He knows needs to be burned out, not just what we will allow Him too, and be washed down with Fullers Soap can hurt in the process, but in the end it will all be worth it all, as what He has for us is so much better anyway, and His life so much higher, with greater rewards that come with it.
Christ is in you the hope of Glory, and He is asking you to get out of His way, in you so that He can truly fill you with Himself the richest measure of His Divine Presence. Do we need to work at this? No we simply yield, submit, obey, with the help of the Holy Spirit we get  up on that alter and yield all that we are, were and hope to be to the One that knows all things anyway, and knows best for our lives, and how to fulfill the purposes He created us for, to begin with..
