Jesus asks me, “Do you know what it means for Father to put everything in subjection to Me? Or do you understand Him putting all My enemies under My feet as a footstool?” He continues, “Many in America think a footstool is what one places their feet on when lounging or relaxing. But think of it as the footstool under the feet of a king on his throne."
The Father of Glory comes to me during prayer and says, “Proclaim to My church, to My people, to My children:
Are you not Mine? Yet you are asleep. Awake! Arise! Stand up from among the dead. Rise up above the fear and proclaim to all those around you I Am the Great I Am, the One who loves and forgives all sins and brings life to the dead and hope to the hopeless. Rise up! Sing aloud, do not hold back. Do not conform to the standards of the world. Church, rise up! Proclaim My Word! Do not allow the enemy to steal the power and authority I have given to you! Do not allow the lies of the enemy to […]
Jesus says to me, “You must tell them to forsake all that dishonors Me. Help them to understand many times their “gray areas” are blasphemous in My presence. How will they be able to stand before Me when I am repulsed by what they put before their eyes and their ears. Did I not say blessed are those who have eyes to see and ears to hear? So many of those who claim to be My children fill their existence with that which is abominations in My eyes, so they cannot see nor can they hear My voice or My Word.”
“As a Jew removes every speck of yeast from their home, I desire My children to remove every speck of abomination […]
God speaks through His Spirit with those who abide in Him (John 14:15-27, Gal 5:25). What is interesting is if we are not led by God’s Spirit, we are not His children (Romans 8:14). As we seek to have a right relationship with God and abide in Him, we begin to commune with Him as a friend (John 10:27, Revelation 3:20).
Your relationship with the One who created and designed you (Psalm 139) will be unique as well as a journey. As we see in Scripture, God speaks to each of His children differently:
Moses – By voice and a burning bush (Exodus 3ff), and then later face to face as a friend (Exodus 33:11).
Joseph – Given interpretation for dreams (Genesis 40)
Zechariah – […]
Jesus leans back and says, “I am your responsibility. People, places, worldly events, they should not deter you from Me, but instead push you to Me all the more. Man does not know what they want, else they would desire after Me. They run to and fro seeking anything else but Me.”
I think of the social media that many are running to. Jesus continues, “Entertainment, not truth. People want to be withdrawn from their lives into a world of lies and fantasy, which then becomes their heart’s desire for truth. Chasing after the wind, all that is vanity. To desire truth is to seek it out. Work for it. This country has forgotten the joy, the experience of knowing Me!”
Jesus leads […]
I watch as Father laughs with those near Him. His laughter not only resounds through me like bass during a concert, but His joy and love also encompasses my being as delight rises within.
He looks at me, “Yes, I laugh. I also laugh at the ignorance and foolishness of those who do evil. For they do know in their heart they are doing wrong, they are heading to destruction, but they choose to believe the lie they will get away with it and no payment will be required. Foolish ones! They see their sin and evil as being written down and they say to themselves, ‘No one sees, no one will know, Even God, creator of Heaven and Earth has turned […]
If you want something bad enough, you will seek it out.
If you don’t want it, you will refuse to allow it in.
For the past few months I have been on a journey regarding Joy. I have to admit, I had to break through a lot of lies I have been taught and barriers in my life during this journey. I wanted to know why does a baby laugh to tears at the simplest motion. Why do animals play? Where does our humor come from? Nutshell… where was my humor, my laughter, my joy? Then this week happened and I experienced joy during the tragedy. It is a moment that I pray I never forget. I can now say confidently, […]
Sometimes it is hard to be a follower of Christ. Especially when his teachings can be hard for us to follow. Let’s take a look at a sermon Jesus gave…
Read Mark 7:1-23
Why is this teaching hard?
What is Jesus communicating here?
Am I really accountable for my thoughts?
Is it even possible to control my thoughts?
Let me share this verse with you.
Jeremiah 17:10, “I the LORD search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.”
Read also Psalm 7:9, Jeremiah 11:20, Jeremiah 20:12,
Rev 2:23b And all the churches will know that I am he who searches mind and heart, and I will give to each of you according to your works.
How do […]
