True Love Comes Only From God

True Love Comes Only From God
.... .God is love…….. I John 4:7b

It never ceases to amaze me how people who don’t: know, comprehend, believe in or even acknowledged the very existence of our God; can set aside a day ….. that honors the very essence of who He is!

Our Sword simply states that “GOD” is love. Therefore, anything that is outside of who God is cannot be categorized as love. This concept of God as love is difficult for many to grasp – especially those of us who use English as our primary language. Most of the other dialects use different words to express their emotions of various degrees. However, we use a singular word “love” to express our feelings in every arena - from food to our possessions, to our spouses, to our children, to our pets – EVERYTHING for which we have a deep affection.

However, anything that is not in accord with who God is, is not Love. Many, for centuries have adapted the enemy’s concepts and have been so misinformed concerning the definition of love. Man has thought that he can apply this word love to and in any situation.

To simply state it - every affection or relationship that is outside of, and is not in conformity with God’s word, is not truly love. Call it what you will – however you are only deceiving yourself!

Man has made an attempt to fill that place in his life that God has reserved just for Himself with various “counterfeits”. When we begin to understand the true Love of our God – then we will aggressively begin to remove every imitation, every fake expression, every “pacifier” that the enemy has provided.

Sooooo here we go…. On Valentine’s Day let’s set the record straight! If you’re involved in any relationship be it: extra-marital, adulterous (sex with a married partner that is not yours), fornication (sex without of marriage), same gender relationships, or you are intimately involved with a “significant other” - and you THINK that you are in “LOVE” – wake up and smell the coffee! You have settled for something much less than the true love God has intended for you to enjoy. All of these are outside of what God – who is Love – has decreed as LOVE!

God’s love for us has no limits or boundaries. God’s love is expressive. However, it is to be expressed within HIS guidelines! It’s because of His love that He has placed inside of each of us, that we have a desire, to also communicate that love to others. Yet, it’s His game and He has set the stakes high! Don’t lower your standards. Don’t diminish your royal, priestly position (I Peter 2:9) by becoming involved in the trickery of the enemy. Be determined that you will only accept the best and discard the rest! Be determined to go “against the grain”. Dare to be different! But above all dare to be RIGHT!

GOD IS LOVE ….. and whatever is outside of His standards and His guidelines….is not love!

Have a blessed day…filled with the true love of the Lord!

“The one who says, "I have come to know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected.” I John 2:4 & 5

Lord, I Will Remain Available

Lord, I Will Remain Available
Into your hands I commit my spirit….. Psalm 31:5

 

I recently had the opportunity to speak to someone that I hadn’t seen for quite some time. This person is a gifted preacher and has been used mightily for and by the Lord. When I questioned them concerning their current status; they informed me that they were not longer “interested” in ministry.

Although we all have those days when we FEEL as though it’s easier to just throw in the towel, we have learned, we can’t be motivated by our feelings! We can’t afford to permit the enemy to bring us to the conclusion that the Lord has made a mistake when He has chosen to give to us certain gifts!

So how do we keep up the momentum? How do we remain available to the Lord year upon year upon year? How do we continue to stand - regardless? Listed below are a few suggestions. Always remember… although you may not be able to physically see the impact that you are making in the realm of the spirit… if you weren’t accomplishing anything – the enemy wouldn’t try to convince you to give up! The stronger that the desires are for you to just “give it up” - the more you should be assured that you are really a “throne in the flesh” of the enemy. Now is not the time to take our spiritual gifts for granted. The Lord needs the availability of ALL of us more now than ever before.

We must, as endtime Saints; remain available to and for the cause of Christ; available for the move of God, available for the work of ministry and above all available to be used totally for and by the Lord.

To be certain that I remain available I must:
1. Spend quality time in the Lord’s presence ( Matthew 6:9-15; Psalm 92:2)
2. Develop a pattern of fasting, accompanied with intensive prayer on a regular basis (Matthew 6:16)
3. Read your sword daily (Psalm 27:8)
4. Don’t ignore the whispers of the Holy Spirit (I Kings 19:12)
5. Live a lifestyle that is so committed to the Lord, that the devil finds no open door within me to gain an access. (Galatians 2:20,21; John 14:30b; Romans 12:1,2)
6. Know that the Lord wants to use me, can use me and will use me on a daily basis…IF I present myself unto Him.

Some of you might remember Ron Kenoly, who had expressed it this way: “If you can use anything Lord, You can use me. Take my hands Lord, take my feet, Touch my heart Lord, speak through me, If You can use anything, You can use me.”

So, continue to “make yourself” available to be used of the Lord. Remember…. Some lost soul may be waiting just for you; so be available. Some discouraged sister or brother needs to hear your testimony/praise report; so be available.

YOU... need the power, the wisdom and the endurance that will only be received as you remain connected to the Lord; so maintain you availability !

Remember that the enemy is counting on you to give up or to be so “busy” that you are not available to hear the voice of God. Think about it…. if I am not available to be used by God….…..I AM available and already being used by the enemy!!!!!!

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20

WAIT, WAIT, WAIT..... AGAIN!

WAIT, WAIT, WAIT....AGAIN!

The waiting game! For many of us, life seems to have given us a first class seat in this section of time called “waiting”. We seem to always think that we are ready to advance to our next place. We seem to think that we are focused and in the correct lane….we are disciplined and in the correct position ….yet we still haven’t heard the correct sound that signals us to move forward……so we WAIT.

Waiting is a word that’s familiar to everyone – across the board. From the youngest infant to the oldest adult: the rich, the wealthy, the poor, the educated and unlearned – everyone has had their dealings with this thing called waiting.

In my opinion, this era of “instant” everything; has produced within us the mindset that the manifestation of all our desires should have occurred yesterday! For most of us, we haven’t mastered the mindset of waiting.

Although we don’t always view it as so, when we are waiting, we are actually saying, “I haven’t given up….. I’m still anticipating that something phenomenal is going to happen”.

So, as we wait in the physical realm; in the realm of the spirit our mindset must remain:
Watchful, Active, Ideological, Truthful.
To further explain:
W - Watchful. Maintain your attentiveness; stay on the lookout. Don’t fall asleep! (I Peter 5:8)
A - Active. Mark time if you must – but do something! Don’t permit your spirit to become lazy. (Proverbs 6:6)
I - Ideological. Never allow your creative abilities to cease. There are still new inventions to  be discovered! Just because you are waiting in one area doesn’t mean that you
     can’t progress in other areas. (I Corinthians 2:9)
T – Truthful . Uphold your level of integrity in word and in deed. Don’t begin to lower your standards nor your expectations. (II Corinthians 8:21)

So, against popular belief… the waiting game does have its positive aspects. However, it’s our decisions and our expectations (or the lack of them!) that permit us to make lemonade from the lemons, rather than drink its juice and complain about the tartness!

“Your Fruit Will Manifest–If You Don’t Quit”
“So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit.” Galatians 6:9 (The Message Bible)


Be encouraged! Your journey may have been long and the nights sleepless. However, just remember that God will always prove Himself to be faithful. Whatever He has promised … it SHALL, and it MUST come to pass. WHY? Simply because He is NOT a man that He would lie!!! (Refer to Numbers 23:19).

Endurance is the key at this stage of the game. Change = Endurance. The more drastic the change, the more intense must be the level of endurance. When we begin to think about that word endurance – we will immediately relate it to some sort of battle, struggle or adverse condition. The Greek word for endure (hupomeno); is defined as: “to persevere under misfortunes and trials; to hold fast to one's faith.” Therefore, if there are no opposing forces, or conflicting circumstances… then there would not be anything to press through – there would be no reason to “endure”.

When we look at a bowl of fruit, it may very well be balanced and neatly arranged. However, at that state, the fruit which is just sitting in a bowl is not being eaten. It is not fulfilling its purpose. Even though it has endured and weathered various stages to arrive at its present state, it still hasn’t fulfilled its purpose and yielded the benefit for which it was created. Now… if the fruit is going to be consumed by our bodies, it must still undergo even more changes. It must be broken down and transformed into another state so that it will produce the ability to be absorbed by our bodies. Then it will be totally useful, valuable and fulfilling its created purpose.

We, like the fruit which is sitting in a bowl, must endure …..and not become: fatigued, worn-out, drained….WEARY, during our processes of alteration. Sometimes we become weary because we have an unbalanced life. We have focused only on our spiritual man and haven’t amended the activities that will benefit our physical man as well. Remember….There is no substitute for maintaining healthy eating habits, and getting the proper amount of rest and relaxation.

Change requires Endurance…..and Endurance also produces Change! It IS our due season…. However, we will only reap our harvest if;
• We continue to endure every facet of change as a good soldier (2 Timothy 2:3);
• We are determined to EMBRACE every stage of our change….
• And we don’t give up …..nor become weary!
Remember, the reward isn’t given to those who begin a race…only to those who endure…. and complete the course!

Don’t Believe What You Perceive In The Natural….
It Might Be An Optical Illusion!
“There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” Proverbs 14:12

 

Visual illusions; better referred to as optical illusions; have taught us that what we think that we see, doesn’t always reveal what is actually present. In a visual illusion, your brain attempts to process information received from your optic nerve. However, although many people can view the same picture they will not always perceive the same image. This is thought to be because of the complexity and individuality of our brain cells; as well as all of the occurrences and information that we have received in our lifetimes. Therefore, we have learned that we can only believe about a half of what we see with our physical eye.

As the end of time as we have now perceived it quickly draws nigh, it behooves us to more eagerly develop our spiritual senses. We must learn not to sensor everything through what we see with our physical eye, but to increase the awareness of our spirits (conscience, intuition, and communion with God)….. And to permit that knowledge to impact our soul (mind, will and emotions).

The enemy has painted most of the visual illusions that we cling to today – and that we perceive as truth. Usually, our number one blockage or hindrance in our spiritual walk has resulted from nothing more than an “optical illusion”. It’s some concept or precept that we have “viewed” and now its residue is still lingering….preventing us from aggressively and effectively defeating the enemy….at all times.

II Corinthians 4:18 summarizes this entire concept. Here Paul is telling us not to look at the things that we see…..because they are temporal…. subject to change. I would like to encourage you to focus more on the “weightier” things in life. Many people will read every label prior to purchasing their food or clothing and even exercise religiously. …nothing wrong here. However, their focus on the edification of their spirit man is not as meticulous.

Let’s no longer, beginning this year of 2020, receive the optical illusion that this world has presented. Let’s take off the spiritual blinders….and stop living within the perimeters….the “lies” that the enemy has given to us. Walk by faith, not by sight (II Corinthians 5:7). We are still privy to every blessing proclaimed in Deuteronomy 28…. And then some!!! Don’t allow an optical illusion to deceive you; causing you to abort or to totally miss your next opportunity for advancement.

Everyone has been taught that 20/20 is perfect vision, because that has been determined as normal vision. However, there is a better vision – such as 20/10; of which many are not aware. In this season, we must strive to not settle for the norm - but excel to the greatest possible position in every facet of our lives.

Lastly, we must remember, that viewing life only through our five senses is elementary. Therefore, I must enhance my spiritual discernment – as to not be overtaken ever again by the next optical illusion that the adversary presents as truth!

“Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.” II Corinthians 4:18 (Amplified Version)

Cut Them Off….They are Only A Weight!
“Do you see what this means - all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running - and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in.” Hebrews 12:1 (The Message Bible)

 

Today the Lord has said that we are running this race…..and we are running well….however we are still carrying too much baggage. In this season, this year of 2020, we cannot become overly taxed or distracted. God has said that we are still attempting to drag and pull everyone with us to our next place in Him. Some – NO…. most of the people with whom you communicate on a daily basis, are not ready to go with you! They haven’t made the proper preparations and advancements in the realm of the spirit.

Everyone will not, has not and cannot receive nor embrace the mantle that the Lord has given unto you. They are just not ready to go where you are going. The pace will be too rapid; the journey too long; the mission too intense and the level of strategic maneuvers too in-depth. Therefore, even without your knowledge, they have become the hindrance – the weight, which is preventing you from running with the speed and endurance that you know you possess. In previous years, we have permitted others to cause a delay in the manifestation of our expected result.

The Lord has also said: “In this new dimension, we must stay free, move quickly, cautiously, and quietly. Don’t disclose the information that I give to you to everyone. Only reveal what I tell you to reveal – to whom I direct you. View everything, everything through the eyes of your spirit. Listen through the ears of your spirit. Sensitize and synchronize your spirit to the emotions of my Spirit – not your mind. Rest in me to the extent that nothing “catches” you in a state of being “unaware”. Fear no man nor his position. Go where I send you. They are already waiting and expecting your arrival.”

In the dimension that you are now functioning, you must have a keener discernment, an enlighten awareness of My presence and the ability to position yourself from a pillar of supernatural wisdom. This wisdom will transcend your experiences and your learned knowledge. Daily ascend into the realm which operates above the battlefield of the demonic and satanic influences. The time has come for the true worshippers to become unmasked and made known. The day has come for miracles, signs and wonders to overwhelmingly be manifested through you – My called out and chosen ones.

Again I warn you, saith the Lord, CUT THEM OFF….. they are only a WEIGHT…. And producing your “WAIT” (Weary, Agitated, Increased, Tension) in the realm of the Spirit!

……And it is so!

Note: The Lord has also said that I am not to further explain or add anything else to this message. Those who are to receive more – will get it directly from Him!

I Won’t Sit In Fear …..I’ll Walk By Faith!

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love”. I John 4:18


In what area of your life fear has become your favorite pillow, your warm comforter or your pair of fuzzy slippers? Or maybe your escape from fear leads you to binges of over or under eating, excessive spending sprees, or becoming involved in behavior patterns that are totally ungodly.

The spirit of fear is always looking for opportunities to enter, dominate and paralyze us. Usually, when the time arises for us to embark upon and advance into a new place in the Lord, he (the spirit of fear) – will faithfully grace our stage for a grand performance! In other words that spirit of fear will always seek to gain an entrance into our spirit man – and play a major role in preventing us from moving forward in the Lord.

Therefore, because most of us have a great expectation for what this year of 2020 is going to bring into manifestation, we can expect the spirit of fear to attempt to make us abort our God given plans and dreams.

However, it’s time for us to “take the bull by the horns” and aggressively pursue our next adventure in the Lord. Remember, walking in faith isn’t always walking in the absence of fear. There will be times when you will have to move forward while “feeling” afraid…. But you must continue to advance. If your level of faith is going to increase, you can’t stand still and wait until you don’t feel afraid. Be militant in your stand. Remember, fear endeavors to cause YOU to commit self-sabotage by assuming that the outcome of situations will result in negative consequences. We must always and alway, focus on Romans 8:28 – and never allow fear to overwhelm us!

I would like to encourage you to embrace the prayer below that I had written quite a few years ago concerning the spirit of fear. Remember….you are in control and the decision is yours. Your actions can’t be camouflaged. They will reveal whether you have chosen to SIT in fear or the WALK by faith. Although you may have undoubtedly read it before, because you are in a new place, this prayer will have an enhanced application.

 

Fear Be Gone! (© 2003)

Father God in the name of Jesus, I denounce the spirit of fear in my life. As of this day, I forbid the spirit of fear to dominate, reign or sit passively in any area of my life.

Holy Spirit, I surrender right now to you my entire being. I ask that you reveal to me now every area of my life where ungodly fear is present. Every area in my conscience or sub-conscience arena where fear may have a stronghold. Any area from my past where fear has been the comfort zone. Reveal every open door that satan has used to bring fear into my life.

Lord God, your word declares that your perfect love will cast out, drive away, eradicate and will replace fear. So Father, I come to you now and ask that you reveal to me your perfect love in every area of my being. Your love that will not fail. Your love that is unconditional. Your love that is incomprehensive to my natural man, but is conceivable in the spirit realm.

Father, as I have asked the Holy Spirit to reveal the entrances where fear has entered, I ask you for the wisdom needed to close every open door. I decree those doors closed, shut, sealed - never to be opened again.

I thank you Father God for my new found freedom in you now that the weight of fear is gone. Hallelujah!

Psalm 56:4 “When I am afraid, I will trust in you”.

Don’t Stop, Appreciate The “Comma” ….. And Keep It Moving!
“Be still, and know that I am God. …………..” Psalm 46:10

 

When using written communications to convey our thoughts to others, it is much easier for us to be understood when we use various punctuation marks. Whether you are the writer or the reader; without the use of punctuation marks it would be virtually impossible for the written communication to be successfully comprehended.

One such marking that most of us are familiar with is the comma. The comma, unlike the period informs us the we haven’t arrived at the end of the sentence; there is still more to come; so just take a brief pause and continue on.

Our lives are also accompanied with various “accent or punctuation marks”. There will be times when we arrive at the place when it becomes necessary to take a brief rest – and then continue on. In other words – we’ve arrive at a place that we know isn’t the end or the final stage of the project. Yet, we are not feeling as though we should proceed “right now”. This may be the time when it is necessary to take a brief pause – and then to continue on.

These are the times when you just might be experiencing the awareness of a “spiritual comma” that God has inserted into the “sentence of your life”. God strategically places the commas in our lives where He knows that they will effectively impact us and those to whom he has called us to minister. Don’t ignore the God inserted commas; if you do, the remainder of the spiritual sentence will be perplexing. In other words, don’t push forward when God is telling you to wait. Don’t try to MAKE God move in a given situation. Far too often I hear people say that they are going to fast and prayer when they are faced with a difficult situation….. because they want God to change His plans concerning their situations. Fasting doesn’t change the mindset or decision of God – it changes us and increases our level of faith. Therefore, don’t lean to your own understanding. Seek the face of God… and walk or wait there in.

God may also place a comma in our lives when we need to replenish, regroup, and become rejuvenated and revitalized! Appreciate the God inserted commas – the wisdom of God has mandated them for our Spiritual and natural betterment.

So just remember, the comma is the signal to stop briefly; and then continue on. Don’t become too comfortable or discouraged in the “comma” place. There is still more to be accomplished. God will use YOU to achieve all that He has promised. Don’t become disheartened when the situations and circumstances which were once “sailing smoothly” suddenly appear to hit a few bumps in the road…..even though you know that the journey isn’t complete. Maybe you’ve just encounter a spiritual comma. So remain calm, seek the face of God for any amendments that need to be implemented… and wait for the release to proceed further.

Acknowledge and appreciate the commas…. They are the brief resting places along this “sentence” of life.

And He said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a lonely place and rest a while."……
Mark 6:31

“There’s A New Prophetic Sound for 2020 …. Have you heard it?”
“I will sing a new song to you, O God…..” Psalm 144:9

 

As we enter this year of 2020 (or continue with the year 5780 according to Judaism) again I ask the question “What do you hear?”. An entirely new sound has been dispatched from the heavens and it is still seeking new: committed, excited, and submitted vessels This sound is seeking to reside within these vessels and cultivate within them the ability to connect in the realm of the spirit to other like-minded vessels. In this season, we will be more aware of our impact in and to the kingdom of darkness.


Especially in this now, in this year of the double, we must listen with the ear of our spirit for additional new chords…new blends… new complex chords. As we hear, we must receive into our spirit-man the revelatory sounds which will usher us into a new prophetic time of worship. This type of worship will empower us with the grace to experience the double. Our number one weapon during this end -time season is worship. Not the worship of times past, but an enhanced worship which is capable of permitting us to receive from the Lord the end-time strategy, power, grace and favor. That strategy which will bring a total transformation of our thought patterns, methodologies and “religious” convictions. That strategy which will usher us through economic crises, atmospheric irregularities and terroristic threats. That strategy which will enable us to remain totally focused and unmovable in the midst of every adversity. That strategy that will permit us to be engulfed with the peace and presence of God – regardless. That strategy which will provide to us the ability to transcend this atmosphere and enter into the “Courts of Heaven”…above the battle field of demonic and satanic activity. We will now as a result of becoming aware of where we are, participate in supernatural judgements and rulings.


As we begin to receive, it then becomes our responsibility to share the essence of the new chord and to instruct others in the proper disciplinary spiritual insights, which are required for them to become “new vessels” within the realm of the Earth.


As this new sound is received here on earth, then blended by many, we will once again release it back to the Lord during corporate worship as well as during personal times of intimacy with Him. Upon its ascension, it is heard as one voice; one perfected sound unto the Lord. Although in the realm of the spirit-we may hear several complexed chords, they will still ascend as one voice; one perfected praise unto the Lord.


This new sound, once we have received it into our spirits, will also enable our souls to become transformed into the expressed mind and will of God. Without the acknowledgement of this sound, our minds do not have the ability to embrace the “renewal process” (Romans 12:1). Without renewed minds we are not equipped with the necessary format nor the discipline to govern our bodies, and to bring them under the subjection of the Holy Spirit. We have no true revelation of how to become presented as a living sacrifice.
Even many more prophetic gatherings - true prophetic gatherings, are receiving the manifestation and the divine presence of the Lord as never before, simply because they have heard the new sound. Doubled angelic appearances, doubled gold dust manifestations already this year!


This new sound - prophetic in nature, has no limits and no boundaries! Yet, its nature is disciplined, its character is divine and its application is strategic.
Leaders, Warriors, Overcomers… it’s 2020…this year of the double….. and yet another new sound has been released…..Have You Heard It?

The Day of Evangelism

The Day of Evangelism

“Ha'ed Ha-Ne'eman”
Jesus -The Faithful Witness (Rev. 1:5).

“……………Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, Revelation 1:4 & 5

 


Read: Revelation 3:14 John 8:14 Proverbs 14:5

As this consecration month concludes; let us enhance and embrace the mandate that God though Jesus has given to each and every one of us. This concept is contained in what we refer to as, “The Great Commission”.

The Scriptures reveal that Jesus illustrated to us the importance of being that faithful witness in every aspect of life. Therefore, no matter what we are experiencing, we should remember that we are undergoing: the good, the bad and the ugly; for no other reason than to be a faithful witness to the awesomeness of God our Father. We are called to endure as good soldiers, and to remind everyone that our God is still the Lord over every circumstance.

So Lord, I ask for your assistance in altering my outlook on evangelism. May my concepts on evangelism not remain condensed to the notion of distributing tracts or specific “outreach programs”. May my attitude emanate from the viewpoint that I am God’s Evangelist “24 - 7 - 365”. May I remember that I am to be a faithful witness for the Lord on a daily basis through my: lifestyle, appetites, desires, conversations and even my appearance. May I always remember that Jesus, as that faithful witness, never lost His focus; nor permitted the daily occurrences of life to persuade Him or cause Him not to be faithful in His commitment to you, His Father. May I no longer relinquish or diminish the power and presence of the indwelling power of the Holy Ghost by stating, “Well, I’m not Jesus”. May I now advance towards the walk of maturity and willingly submit, surrender and transform myself to mirror: “I CAN do all things through Christ who gives me the strength”. I will even become a faithful witness when I, myself may not “feel” up to par. I will continue to press pass anything that I personally am experiencing. I will seize every opportunity to bring an awareness of your love to everyone…. Especially to those who do not know you as their Lord and Saviour.

May I become infectious with a never dying desire to “needs go through my Samaria” at any cost; to experience those “uncommon” situations that are necessary in these times.

I thank you my “Ha'ed Ha-Ne'eman” that my thirst for the unsaved will permit me to intensively heed to every inkling that the Holy Spirit places within me. I will not become comfortable in using outdated methods of evangelism – but will adhere to your divine wisdom which will enable me to be an effective evangelist today and always.

I decree and declare that it is so…..In the name of Jesus. Amen

Day 29—The Day of Affirming My Promises

Today O Lord….. surround us with the manifestation of your promises through your Promised One.
“Ruach HaKodesh ka'sher dibber”
(Holy Spirit Of Promise (Eph. 1:13)



Read: Acts 2:33; Galatians 3:14; Ephesians 4:21; Ephesians 4:30

Lord, when your Son walked this earth, there came a time when he had to return back to you. However, prior to his departure, he PROMISED those whom he loved that he wouldn’t leave them alone – but would send another comforter to them.

The Holy Spirit is your fulfillment and the revelation of that promise. Jesus’ disciples now had to trust and rely on the Holy Spirit – one whom they couldn’t see, to replace the physical presence of the one that they had seen and loved so much.

As I go THROUGH difficult times and the normal occurrences of this life; may I always cling to and depend upon the eternal, all sufficient power of the Holy Spirit. May I stand anchored and yet affirm that His manifested presence makes accessible every promise that you have stated in your Word.

Thank you Lord for being ever present. Thank you Lord for the indwelling presence and power of the Holy Spirit. Thank you Lord that I can affirm and confirm the authenticity of your promises through the Holy Spirit. Thank you Lord that I can now stand boldly and fulfill every promise that I have decreed during this consecration. Thank you Lord that I can walk as your vessel of integrity …. Honoring every promise that I have uttered… to whomsoever it was spoken.

As you have delivered your Promise and your promises to me; may I perpetually uphold your banner of honor and never become slack concerning any promise that I engage in.

I decree and declare that it is so….. In the name of Jesus – Amen.

Day 28—The Day of Realization

Day 28—The Day of Realization
……Am I a Good Shepherd or a Hireling?

 “HaRo'eh HaTov”
(Jesus - The Good Shepherd - John 10:11, 14)
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. St. John 10:11

 


Read: St. John 10
 
Lord God, you have chosen to permit your Son to reveal to us a unique relationship – that between the Shepherd and his sheep.

Many of us in reality; cannot fully comprehend the amount of dedication, and unconditional love that is felt by the Shepherd for his sheep. However, you have told us that the GOOD Shepherd is willing to risk their own life to protect and defend his sheep. That’s love.

So may I mirror the example of Jesus – the good shepherd. May I establish motives, desires and guidelines which are in accord with those of a good shepherd.

May I yield and submit entirely to all that enables me to safeguard my possessions; in the realm of spiritual and in the physical realm. I will never possess the character qualities of a hireling….thus causing me to abandon what you have entrusted to me. I will effectively stand against the forces that emanate from the kingdom of darkness; which attempt to cause me to desert or to abort the manifestation of the dreams and visions that you have given to me.

May I come to an awareness that as your Son gave His life for us –your sheep; I must express the same amount of love for you by being a good shepherd and not a hireling at any cost.

I now realize that everything that has occurred in my life; has prepared me to successfully triumph today… in every area of me life. I now realize that I can never fail; simply because failure has not been programed into my data base. I now realize that although the seasons of life are subject to confined time periods; I can decree a perpetual flow of your favor that will transcend throughout every season and never cease.

Thank you HaRo'eh HaTov for your perfect example….. for I finally realize who I am in you!

I decree and declare that it is so…..In the name of Jesus. Amen

Day 27—The Day of Reality

Day 27—The Day of Reality
The truth will always prevail!

“JEHOVAH ADON KOL-HA’ARETS”
(Lord of all the earth.)

“The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth”. Psalm 97:5

 

Read: Jos. 3:11, 13; Ps. 97:5; Zech. 4:14; 6:5.

Lord, you have established and revealed yourself throughout history as the “Lord of all the earth.” Without regards given to the: political, economic, religious customs and any other trend of this world – the truth yet remains ….. YOU are still the Lord of all the earth.

So today may I do a reality check. I ask that you produce within me the awareness that will illuminate every thought pattern that contradicts the reality of who you are. Reveal areas that have not yet been surveyed. Areas where I may have permitted the cares of this world to become residents. May I carefully “weed out” and forcefully evict from my mindset these thoughts which have caused me to conform to the ideologies and methodologies of this world. (Realizing that they have opened the doorways for that triplet of: fear, doubt, and unbelief, to enter.)

Since your character qualities don’t possess the ability for you to change; may I find security in knowing that it doesn’t matter what occurs within this earth – you are still the Lord of this earth and all that transpires in it. You have given to us the dominion over the functioning and governing this earth – but you are still Lord (Psalm 24:1).

Therefore, I will exercise my power and authority to exemplify the REALITY of the fact that your Lordship is ever present. The REALITY of the fact that because your Lordship is ever present I CAN and WILL excel in my every endeavor. The REALITY of the fact that my faith in you, “ADON KOL-HA’ARETS”, will continue to advance, thus permitting the entrance into this realm of the manifestation of miracles, signs and wonders. Lastly, the REALITY of the fact that I will not leave this earth prematurely, but will live a long and productive life – filled with joy and prosperity!
I decree and declare that it is so….. In the name of Jesus – Amen.

Day 26—The Day of Strength

Day 26—The Day of Strength

Lord, YOU are my strength!
“JEHOVAH UZZI”
(The Lord my strength - Psalms 28:7)
“JEHOVAH TSURI”
(O Lord my strength - Psalm 19:14)

“My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the STRENGTH of my heart; he is mine forever. “ Psalm 73:26 New Living Translation (©2007)



Read Psalm 28 & Psalm 73

As we have daily encountered the circumstances of life, we have realized that we have only maintained the ability to yet be triumphant because of an inner strength that has been and always will be prevalent. This strength is not our strength, but strength of the Lord.

The word in the above text for strength translates as “rock”. So my prayer for today is:
Lord, may I remember that you are my perpetual “ROCK”. When all else fails—you will remain constant. Even if there comes a time when my health, wealth, and spirit become overwhelmed—you are still my strength. Daily may I never attempt to stand in my own strength. Daily may I acknowledge you in all of my ways. Daily may I remember that I CAN do all things through your strength which is that rock, that pillar and that fortress forever in my life. Daily may I remain cognizant of the fact that “In Times Like These”…I have an anchor; that my anchor holds…. And that it grips you…. that solid Rock!

So Lord, when everything: every foundation, every prop, every support system that has been erected in my life—is shaken…. “when the earth all around me is sinking sand”; on Christ that solid rock I’ll stand! When I need shelter, when I need a friend; “I go to the rock”. May I never, never, never forget that YOU are my strength…..my rock.

May I fully understand and cling to the essence of an old favorite hymn which states:
“On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand”.

I decree and declare that it is so….. In the name of Jesus – Amen.

Day 23—The Day of Conscientiousness

Elohim Kedoshim
(The Holy God)
Joshua 24:19

"And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve the LORD: for he is an HOLY GOD; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins." Joshua 24:19

Read: Joshua 24

What is meant by the word “holy” or “holiness”? These two words are two of the most misunderstood words in Christendom. From God’s perspective; neither refers to an outward appearance, denomination, or anything that can be accomplished in our flesh. True holiness is that quality within us that brings us to a conscious awareness of the sinless nature of our God. It is then, because of that enlightenment, that we begin to transform and conform everything that is in us, to reflect the same.

When I begin to become conscientious of the awesomeness of God; I will with pleasure, delight myself in Him and Him alone. Not in Him AND whatever my flesh desires – but in Him alone. I must always remember that it is a diabolical plot from the enemy, that causes me to allow my thoughts and actions, to challenge the Word of God. I can no longer entertain thoughts that are contrary to the Word of God. If my actions are going to change, my thought patterns must first be amended. May I not remain so immature, as to not realize, that my strength and power, lies in the releasing of those concepts, motives and actions, that are not in accord with who God is.

May I from this day forward, ask you my Elohim Kedoshim, to increase my territory – the territory of my mind. Increase that portion which stores and houses everything that I consider when I think about the word “holy”. Since you have told me to be “holy” because you are Holy; and, without Holiness no man can see you; then this “holiness” attribute is one that I am well capable of accomplishing. I know that these are the last days and that the end of time as I know it is fast approaching. I am therefore determined, with urgency; to begin the process of renewing my mind; AGAIN! (Because I’m in a new place now.) Then, that conscientiousness obtained, will be displayed in accord with who you are, my Elohim Kedoshim, my HOLY GOD.

I decree and declare that it is so…..In the name of Jesus. Amen

Day 22 - The Day of Resurrection

Day 22 - The Day of Resurrection

“El Hay”
(The Living God – Joshua 3:10, Jeremiah 23:36, Daniel 3:26)

“And Joshua said, Hereby, ye shall know that the LIVING GOD is among you, and that he will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Jebusites.” Joshua 3:10



Read: Joshua 3
To bring resurrection to something it must first be: dead, lying dormant, non-productive, insensitive, or non-responsive. Therefore, every position, every platform, every angle from which I operate, must be brought into the alignment of what corresponds with “life”.

Today is the day that I will look in retrospect at my life from my earliest remembrance. I will search for those character qualities that were once common ground and associated with who I was. Although there may have been instances when those character traits where “out of control”, I must now resurrect them by the power of you, El Hay. I must realize that since you, El Hay, have instilled them in me – they are to be used for your glory. Everything and anything that at one time may have been distorted; and used for the edification of the kingdom of darkness – and that I have discarded; must be resurrected and used for its intended purpose; which is the exaltation of your glory.

Since you, El Hay are the living God; and you dwell in me, I have the power of life within me. I have the ability to effectively administer C.P.R. (Controlled, Positioning & Restoration) to the heart of the many ideas, dreams, and aspirations that I have “placed on the shelf”. I also have your God given authority, to take an affirmative position against the enemy and to place his attacks of death under “H.G.A.” (Holy Ghost Arrest). I will never again permit him to intimidate me through disappointments, discouragement, feelings of defeat, uncontrolled anger, and the like.

Because you live – I SHALL live. Because you restore life – I SHALL restore life. Because you produce rebirth – I SHALL produce rebirth. Because you generate revival – I SHALL generate revival. It is because of whom you are, my El Hay; that I SHALL LIVE and not DIE. I have already begun to renew my mind with your Word. Therefore, I now possess the ability to efficiently produce and successfully declare that your resurrection power is at work within me…. Giving renew life to the works that you have assigned to me.

I decree and declare that it is so…..In the name of Jesus. Amen

Day 21- The Day of Victory

Day 21- The Day of Victory

“There is no battle that I will become engaged in or encounter where I will not be victorious.”
“Jehovah Izuz Wegibbor”
(The Lord Strong and Mighty – Psalm 24:8)
“Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah”
(The Lord mighty in battle—Psalm 24:8)

“For the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you VICTORY.” Deuteronomy 20:4

Read: Psalm 24, Luke 10:19 & I John 5

Lord, as this period of Consecration concludes, may I never forget your revealed perceptions and character qualities that have been our focus for the past 21 days. . Daily you were reminding me of who you are, and that you alone have the authority, the power, and the wisdom, to enable me to become victorious, in every situation.

So this “IS” a day of victory because you have equipped me with the proper tools to successfully stand against the wiles of the enemy.
As I encounter various attacks throughout this year, may I remain focused on every concept of who you are. I have obtained an increase awareness of your omniscient presence. Since you, working through your Son Jesus, have already successfully defeated every adverse force – may I never forget that I have a blood brought right to the same victorious state. HALLELUJAH!

I can only emerge from this consecration knowing that whatever I encounter at this stage; in this dimension—I will be victorious… because I AM ALREADY VICTORIOUS! You have been revealing and re-establishing in me for these past 21 days, various facets of who you. May I remain cognizant of the fact that I am required to stand firm and unmovable totally engulfed in who you are; if I am going to maintain my effectiveness in the realm of the spirit. I am therefore equipped with every tool which is now necessary for my advancement, my encouragement and to maintain my stamina in this battle towards my destiny.

Because you are strong and mighty, because you are mighty in battle; I can truly proclaim….
“NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER!”
Hallelujah—I AM VICTORIOUS!!!!

…and I decree and declare that it is so in the name of Jesus….AMEN!!

Day 20-The Day of Joy

Day 20-The Day of Joy

You O Lord are the source of my joy
“El SIMCHATH GILI”
(God my exceeding Joy - Psalm 43:4)
“……...This day is sacred to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the JOY of the LORD is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10




Read Psalm 43 and Nehemiah 8

Today, Lord may I begin to comprehend that you ARE my joy. May I realize that my mind must be renewed to the concept, that my ability to remain joyful (full of joy) in the midst of adversity, is one of the battles that must be won. Consequently, Lord I will totally understand that you and you alone are the nucleus of my joy. Everything that is necessary for my “JOY” has its basis, its focus and its core emanating from you Lord.

Therefore today I invite you, El Simchath Gili to infiltrate my mind, thus permitting me to remain joyful throughout this day. I will not allow any circumstance that may arise today cause me to lose my focus.

So I thank you now, El Simchath Gili for your guidance, direction and the provision of your “joy” - that will be required for this day. May the joy that you bring empower me and offer to me the foundation to stand strong today and always. May I comprehend that joy, unlike happiness, is not contingent upon; my circumstances, my possessions or anything that I may encounter. Joy is that part of your fruit - Holy Spirit; that had been engrafted into my spirit – and is eternal!

May I continue to reflect on the strength and encouragement of our patriots who walked by faith as they sang:
“This joy that I have, the world didn’t give it and the world can’t take it away.”

I decree and declare that it is so….. In the name of Jesus – Amen.

Day 19—The Day of Evangelism

Day 19—The Day of Evangelism

“Ha'ed Ha-Ne'eman”
Jesus -The Faithful Witness (Rev. 1:5).

“……………Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, Revelation 1:4 & 5

 


Read: Revelation 3:14 John 8:14 Proverbs 14:5

As this consecration month concludes; let us enhance and embrace the mandate that God though Jesus has given to each and every one of us. This concept is contained in what we refer to as, “The Great Commission”.

The Scriptures reveal that Jesus illustrated to us the importance of being that faithful witness in every aspect of life. Therefore, no matter what we are experiencing, we should remember that we are undergoing: the good, the bad and the ugly; for no other reason than to be a faithful witness to the awesomeness of God our Father. We are called to endure as good soldiers, and to remind everyone that our God is still the Lord over every circumstance.

So Lord, I ask for your assistance in altering my outlook on evangelism. May my concepts on evangelism not remain condensed to the notion of distributing tracts or specific “outreach programs”. May my attitude emanate from the viewpoint that I am God’s Evangelist “24 - 7 - 365”. May I remember that I am to be a faithful witness for the Lord on a daily basis through my: lifestyle, appetites, desires, conversations and even my appearance. May I always remember that Jesus, as that faithful witness, never lost His focus; nor permitted the daily occurrences of life to persuade Him or cause Him not to be faithful in His commitment to you, His Father. May I no longer relinquish or diminish the power and presence of the indwelling power of the Holy Ghost by stating, “Well, I’m not Jesus”. May I now advance towards the walk of maturity and willingly submit, surrender and transform myself to mirror: “I CAN do all things through Christ who gives me the strength”. I will even become a faithful witness when I, myself may not “feel” up to par. I will continue to press pass anything that I personally am experiencing. I will seize every opportunity to bring an awareness of your love to everyone…. Especially to those who do not know you as their Lord and Saviour.

May I become infectious with a never dying desire to “needs go through my Samaria” at any cost; to experience those “uncommon” situations that are necessary in these times.

I thank you my “Ha'ed Ha-Ne'eman” that my thirst for the unsaved will permit me to intensively heed to every inkling that the Holy Spirit places within me. I will not become comfortable in using outdated methods of evangelism – but will adhere to your divine wisdom which will enable me to be an effective evangelist today and always.

I decree and declare that it is so…..In the name of Jesus. Amen

Day 18 - The Day of Positioning

The Day of Positioning
Lord, you are supreme in power & position.
“Elhoy Marom”
(The God of heights – Micah 6:6)



Read Jeremiah 6:6-16

As this text is researched, we can observe that the word “height” here signifies supremacy of power and position.

Lord, may I now aline and place everything under the authority of who you are. May I never exalt the power of my thoughts or actions above what your word demonstrates and declares.

I will no longer surrender to; and I forbid, any other power to rule or to reign in my life. My acceptance of your sovereignty and my knowledge of your omnipotence validate who you are. I ask that those character qualities fully infiltrate my every thought. May I renew my mind to the extent that I have reworded my vocabulary; to release from my mouth, only the words that will reflect what your Word declares.

There is no other; nor has there ever been; nor ever will be; any force; - visible or invisible, that is able to be in comparison with who you are. Your attributes reveal that you are matchless. Therefore you are the monarch, the exalted one. We could climb up to the highest mountain; even search the lowest valley…. And the supremacy of your power and authority would yet reveal that… There’s NOBODY GREATER THAN YOU!

May I continuously position my spirit to operate in submission only to your sovereign reign, your absolute authority and your ultimate guidance… For YOU ALONE ARE GREAT!

I decree and declare that it is so…..In the name of Jesus. Amen
