The Day of Breakthrough!

The Day of Breakthrough 

“Breakthrough Oh Lord, so that I may break forth”

Yahweh Perazim ”

(The Lord of Breakthrough –II Samuel 5:20)

So David went to Baal Perazim, and there he defeated them. He said, "As waters break out, the LORD has broken out against my enemies before me……………… (II Samuel 5:20)

 

Read: II Samuel 5 

As I enter this New Year – a time of fasting, and consecration; Lord I am requesting that you would permit the power of the Holy Ghost to “breakthrough” and to break up any negative residue that is still attempting to linger in my spirit.  Any lingering mindset that will prevent your power from having its full range in my spirit, Yahweh Perazim, I summit my will to you now, and request that you break through it.  Burst forth as the waters through an overly stretched dam.  Break forth with your explosive, uncontainable power!

As you broke through and rescued David from his enemies, breakthrough the plans and devices that my enemy, the master deceiver, has concocted for my demise and destruction.   Break through every shackle that is still attached to my feet, thus attempting to prevent me from being in my “appointed places” at the correct times. Break through the thorns and thistles in the realm of spirit, which produce the “snags” that permit me to misuse or waste valuable time.  Break through unhealthy, nonproductive relationships.  Break through every barrier and “smoke screen” that is hindering and blocking my vision - still preventing me from aggressively and confidently advancing.  Break through every negative spirit that the traditions of man have instilled in me, which are hindering the effectiveness of our twenty-first century church.  Yahweh Perazim, search my entire being, layer by layer.  Whatever concepts, precepts, ideologies, methodologies and the like, that are contrary to yours – break them up, move them out, replace them with your wisdom, knowledge and understanding.

And now Yahweh Perazim, as you break through, may I daily begin to perceive the results which are being produced from my enhanced position of power and authority.  May I begin to break forth into one who is: feared, detested, hated, envied and begrudged by the kingdom of darkness.  As you use me mightily, may I always remain cognizant and grateful to you, Yahweh Perazim - for your prodigious “break -through” anointing.  May I never become arrogant, conceited or heady – only more confident as I walk and rest in the freedom that only you have the ability to provide.     

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

Day 13—The Day of Establishing Priorities  

                       Today O God, may I not provoke your anger.                  

“El ZELOO”

(The jealous God – James 4:4&5)

Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously”?                                                                                                                                                                                         James 4:4-5 NKJV

 

Read James 4

When we refer to the words jealous or jealously, normally, we relate to them from a negative prospective.  However, there are always at least two sides to every coin. 

Every attribute of God is still an expression of His love for us.  It is because of that love, that He only desires for us to acquire the very best in every arena.  Many times, because we don’t fully understand the total concept of God’s love for us; we think that He has established unrealistic demands or limits on us.  God’s guidelines for our lives, are always motivated from a perspective of genuine love, true love – the which we have no true concept.  If we could ever totally understand His love – then we would have no problem adhering to His word – Regardless. 

When in our lives, we have not received the proper application of unselfish love, then, we in return are more prone to lack the ability to properly love God.  In life, this is the reason why we can willingly and willfully disobey Him and reject His love.  Whenever we decide to walk according to our own desires or to delight ourselves in what the world has to offer; we are rejecting the love of God. In reality I am saying – “God I Still Don’t Understand Your Love For Me!”

The Message Bible states James 4:4-5 this way. “You’re cheating on God. If all you want is your own way, flirting with the world every chance you get, you end up enemies of God and his way. And do you suppose God doesn’t care? The proverb has it that “he’s a fiercely jealous lover.” And what he gives in love is far better than anything else you’ll find. It’s common knowledge that “God goes against the willful proud; God gives grace to the willing humble.”

So Father God I will continue to keep you as the focal point of my life.  In my list of priorities, I will esteem you.  I will bring an amended consciousness to your love for me.  Because I understand your unselfish, “no holds barred” for love for me, I will return the same.  May I always remember that everything I do must be for no other reason - than to express to you and show others my love for you. Anything that has moved you from your place of supremacy in my life; be it prestigious positions, business or personal relationships, money, assets – WHATEVER – will now be moved a position of subordination to my love and affection for you.  I will no longer “cheat on you” Lord.   You are number one and my actions and motives will reflect the same.  

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

The Day of Compassion

Day 12—The Day of Compassion  

Yet he, being compassionate, atoned for their iniquity and did not destroy them.

El Rachum”

(The God of compassion. – Deut. 4:31)


"For the LORD your God is a compassionate God; He will not fail you nor destroy you nor forget the covenant with your fathers which He swore to them.”       Deuteronomy 4:31  
New American Standard Bible (©1995)

 

Read: Deuteronomy 4 & Ephesians 4 (emphasis on verse 32)

Lord, may one of my objectives for today be to extend to others the acts of compassion that you have shown to me. 

May my heart not be hardened to those who are not even seeking to know you and love you.  May I not retaliate and avenge others for their acts of ungodliness towards me; – but be motivated to extend and show them true concern and consideration regardless of their acceptance or rejection of my actions of kindness towards them.

Lord, I do realize that I must receive and understand your compassionate love towards me, if I am going to have the ability to reflect the same. 

May I not just sing about your love and compassion, read about it, talk about it, and  confess it; but may I; as another benefit of this consecration; daily increase my demonstrations of genuine compassion towards others.   

When I begin  to realize  and focus on how you, El Rachum, have been so compassionate and expressed  your unconditional love towards me; may I then remember that I have no other choice than to show to others the same.

“I CAN do all things through You, El Rachum, who has given me the strength!”  I CAN show compassion to those who slander, misjudge, demean and spread false accusations concerning me.  I CAN command my tongue to speak ONLY words of compassion to EVERYONE.    I CAN and I must surrender my entire being to become so engulfed with your compassionate love; that as a natural response – my heart is now a heart from which true compassion automatically flows.

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

The Day of Servanthood

The Day of Servanthood

 Eved HaKadosh

Jesus, The Holy Servant – (Acts 4:27) 

“Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed.”  Acts 4:27 NIV

 

 Read: Matthew 20:26-28 (NIV); I Corinthians 7:22 (NASV); Philippians 2:7 (NIV); I Corinthians 9:19 (NIV)

 

Prayer of Servanthood 

(Extracted from my book, “Because I Know Your Word, I STAND” @2003)

 

Father God I thank you for the opportunity to be used of the Holy Spirit to minister to your people.......

Therefore, I have come to the realization that if I am to lead effectively, I must first become a servant.  I will therefore refine my “servanthood mentality” to the upmost.                                                 

As I seek to obtain a more in-depth perception of those whom you have given me to serve, may I continue to curtail or “redirect” my own opinions.  May I submit to the spirit of humility that is required of me, to serve you effectively through serving them.

Lord, I realize the mandate on my life to constantly cultivate every area of my being.  I will never permit pride to mask itself in my life, thus enabling me to become nonchalant, self-satisfied, or complacent in my relationship with you.

You require an excellent commitment as a servant.  I therefore decree to align every aspect of my life to display the same.  I will continue to press into your sovereignty; as your SERVANT.  I will lead with integrity, with expectation and with dedication…as your SERVANT.  I am a faithful and obedient steward over all that you have positioned in my charge….as your SERVANT. This places me in the position to be totally used of you as your proficient SERVANT at all times and in every situation, that I may embark upon.

Daily may I continue to realize that I if I am going to be your profitable servant, I must strive, with my entire being to: love the unlovable, teach the unteachable, and reach the unreachable. Then and only then will I be able to demonstrate the servanthood qualities displayed by Christ, and have at my disposal the mentality to serve you to the fullest, by serving all men.

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

The Day of Kindness 

Day 7—The Day of Kindness 

“Kindness can only be sown from a heart that is tender.”

Elohay Chasdi”

(The God of my Kindness - Psalm 59:11)

Love is patient, love is kind…... I Corinthians 13:4

 

Read Psalm 59 & I Corinthians 13

It has been said that our actions speak louder than our words.  The Bible states, “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as Christ God forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:32 NIV).   

Lord, may I remember, that when I constantly walk in a disposition unforgiveness, haughtiness and arrogance; I am preventing myself from possessing the ability to express kindness to others.

So Lord, I ask that you reveal to me anything within me that is yet preventing me from the ability to show compassion, gentleness and consideration to EVERYONE.  May I not be biased in my actions; but develop the renewed mindset that has become yielding to the ability to express your unconditional love.

May the spirit of pride never mask its self in me, thus manifesting in an unkind, egotistical, conceited, rancorous, vindictive, narcissistic, overly confident, heart. 

May I never forget; because of my own pain, hurt or “convenient amnesia”; the countless acts of kindness that you have displayed and are yet displaying to me.  May I govern myself - and operate daily from a platform that will aggressively look for opportunities to express your kindness to others.

Lastly, may I receive your strength to endure all that this walk of kindness will present.  May I not become discouraged or bitter when my acts of kindness are met with a reciprocation of negative and adverse reactions with diabolical intent.  Elohay Chasdi, simply because you are a God of kindness; my determination is to be so engulfed with your presence that your kindness will have no other alternative than to flow from me to everyone that I encounter.  May your unconditional love be mirrored through me daily; thus producing a degree of kindness that will emanate from me ….. UNCONDITIONALLY!

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

The Day of Comfort

Day 6—The Day of Comfort 

 “Jehovah El Ha-Melitz

…….My Lord, My God, My Comforter 

(The Lord God my Comforter - Isaiah 51:12A)

    "I, even I, am the one who comforts you. Isaiah 51:12A

 

Read Psalm 91

Storms don’t come to last…they come and pass!

Therefore, Oh Lord, may I always retain my focus – regardless to the severity of any storm that I may encounter.  May I never permit the tragedies, the abrupt and sudden onset of negative situations; to overtake my mind or emotions.  May I always find the comfort and peace that I need, in my assurance of who you are my Jehovah El Ha-Melitz

Every storm has a purpose.   You have fore warned us that in this world we will have trouble, trials, and tribulations - storms.  However, you have also said to be of good cheer because you have overcome the world.  Therefore, since you have successfully overcome all that this world has presented to you - I also am an overcomer.

When I reflect, I can hear my Grandmother saying that the darkest hour is just before dawn.  So Lord, may I always take comfort in knowing that the sun WILL always appear again.  May I perpetually find comfort in you, Jehovah El Ha-Melitz .  May I stand in the midst of every storm and still yet declare that you are Lord.  

May I remember that every storm has been orchestrated with the correct timing and the correct nature to push me towards my destiny.  May I always trust and cling to your immutable anchor.  May I never cease to find solace in the guidance of your omniscient and omnipotent eye. 

You ARE– my COMFORTER, my LORD, my GOD…… my Jehovah El Ha-Melitz…. Hallelujah!

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

The Day of Wisdom 

Day 5—The Day of Wisdom 

“Lord may I daily walk in a state of wisdom that operates above my physical age, and natural experiences.”

El De’ot”

(The God of Knowledge - Proverbs 19:8) 

“Wisdom is the principle thing, therefore get wisdom and in all of thy getting, get understanding.” Proverbs 4:7

 

Read: Proverbs 4 & James 1

To have information and to have no knowledge of its application is equivalent to walking in a rainstorm carrying a closed umbrella; and then complain that you’re soaking wet!  During these days, when we are constantly bombarded with negative information; especially concerning the Covid-19 dilemma, many Saints of God are experiencing a since of being “overwhelmed”.   The occurrences which in former times were considered normal, have become problematic for many.  Most are truly devoted Saints - who can tote, quote and know who wrote the Bible.  However, they have not received the degree of wisdom from God for the proper application of the His word.  They have succumb to the fears  which are being experienced by those who have not the Holy Spirit living within them.  

So today Father, I ask that you El De’ot, reveal to me the hidden treasures of your Word.   I understand that I can no longer afford to walk in ignorance concerning the application of your principles.  You have given me a work to accomplish.   I have the tools, I have the plans, and I have the true desire to continue to walk in your divine guidance.  However, the missing element necessary is your wisdom… which is vital, crucial, and extremely relevant for my next level of ministering and ministry.

El De’ot, May I always remember that for every minute that I am not aggressively applying your wisdom, “I” am permitting a delay in the manifestation and the execution of your plans for my life.   “I” am opening the door for diabolical distractions. “I” am giving fuel to kingdom of darkness and giving it permission to release and execute its plans.    

Therefore, I will plunge into you and seek your wisdom at any cost.  The degree of your wisdom which I have already attained and obtained is no longer sufficient.   I therefore humbly release a new mandate into the atmosphere.   I will push through EVERY obstacle that is attempting to prevent me from this advancement, and cling only to you at this time…. as never before. 

 I will, I can, I must, ….with a renewed tenacity seek the guidance and direction… the wisdom…… that is only procured from you El De’ot.  For without you I CAN DO NOTHING!

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

The Day of Illumination

The Day of Illumination

Lord may I permit your light to shine through me—REGARDLESS.

JEHOVAH ORI”

(The Lord my light - Psalms 27:1)

 

Read Psalm 27 & St. John 1

 

To summarize the concept of “Illumination”, we could state that illumination is when God, through the working Holy Spirit conveys to us an understanding of a revealed Bible truth.  

So today, Lord I ask that you illuminate every area of my mind that appears to be dark - void of understanding.   Your Son has come to us as our Light; as our path to understanding your desires for us.  Today may I seek Holy Spirit as never before for a fuller revelation of who you truly are…. For without revelation I will have no illumination. 

I ask that you Lord God, my JEHOVAH ORI; as a result of my daily meditational period with you; implant within me the tenacity to seek your face for true illumination.  May I never fall prey to the ideologies, concepts, and endtime thought patterns that have been released from the kingdom of darkness.  If I must stand seemly alone; I will not fear nor become intimated.  Let me never compromise or keep hidden the illuminated revelations that you have given to me.  My effectiveness as an endtime warrior will only be maintained if I seek you daily for an amended illumination of my previously learned strategies.  

May I realize that just because it’s a new season, that fact alone won’t assure me of receiving your “multidimensional” illuminations.  Lord, illuminate and enlarge my territory…. - the territory of my mind, which will produce new imaginations, a new in-depth vision and a new thirst.  Illuminate and enlarge the territory of communications; thus eliminating all non-productive and hindering connections and relationships.   Illuminate and enlarge the territory of my resources; enabling the release of, access to and the manifestation of those hidden treasures which are so necessary for this season.

Lord may I permit your LIGHT to shine through me, so that I may then in return, share with others an increased measure of wisdom, revelation knowledge and endtime strategies. May my newly received illuminated status, permit me to no longer be biased towards ANY concept that would encourage me to limit my ability to extend your unconditional love to everyone. 

As an additional advantage of your illumination, may I be reassured that you have created, anointed and appointed me….. for such a time as this.  I will not waste time – but will now aggressively pursue your intended plans and purposes for my life. 

Thank you, Jehovah Ori, for all that will be revealed to me as I embrace the benefits of my new illumination!

Every Blessing of the New Year is YOURS!


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! In our ministry one of the times that we embark upon a time of consecration is at the beginning of January.  This period extends for 21 days during which we daily focus on a different character quality of the Lord..  We are also partaking of the Daniel Fast.  The food guidelines are listed separately. (Please contact me if you need them.)

I would also like to remind you to seek the Lord for the wisdom and the endurance to fulfill every commitment made unto Him.  Far too often we are doing the same things, year after year; same consecrations, same types of fasting etc .  Then we become discouraged when we obtain the same results as in previous times. 

Stretch your faith...step up your game.....  place a demand in the realm of the spirit and watch what the Lord does just for you this year!

                                                 ****************************************************************************************************

Day 3—The Day of Redemption

HALLELUJAH! I am redeemed!

“JEHOVAH GOELEKH”

(The Lord thy redeemer - Isaiah 49:26 & 60:16)

 

“But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons”                                                                             Galatians 4:4 & 5  English Standard Version (ESV)

Read Isaiah 49 & Galatians 4

Even though it has been many years ago, whenever I hear the word redemption, I remember the redemption centers for those S & H Green stamps that people used to collect here in America. 

To summarize the entire process; at the center, you would bring in the stamps that you had collected from various food markets - and had pasted in a book.  Then you would trade or “redeem” your stamps for something of value. 

The stamps were just worthless paper, when brought to the redemption center, would be traded for an item whose value was far greater that mere paper.

So it is with us. In our sin nature, we were nothing short of mere paper; just dirt, just clay, and just a blob of useless worthless nothing.  However, God; because of His unconditional love for us has the power to convert, to trade, to exchange and to forever “buy back” our souls.   He desires to release us FROM (the bondages of our former state) and release us TO (our new dimension in the Lord).

There’s a hymn (for those of you who are still be blessed to sing them!), which says:

Redeemed -how I love to proclaim it! Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb;
Redeemed through His infinite mercy, His child, and forever, I am.                                                                                                                        Redeemed, Redeemed, Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb; Redeemed, Redeemed, His child, and forever, I am.

So on today, let us reflect on all that the Lord has permitted us to accomplish….. however great or small.  Let us realize - had it not been for our “JEHOVAH GOELEKH” we would be nothing more than mere S & H Green stamps - with no future or hope.

As Jesse Dixion wrote:

I am redeemed, bought with a price; Jesus has changed my whole life.

If anybody asks you, just who I am, Tell them I am REDEEMED.

Where there was hate, love now abides, where there was confession, peace now reins

I’m walking with Jesus; I’m a child of the King. All because I AM REDEEMED!

 

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

Fret Not -Your Axe-head Will Float Again

(Read: II Kings 6:1-7)

 

This story as recorded in II Kings has always been among one of my favorites.  Today we will not even be able to “scratch the surface” to reveal all that can be gleaned from the examples and principles provided in this story.  However, we’ll probably come back to it at a later date.

The focus for this meditation is the servant.  He was: working, in the right place, doing what he was instructed to do, using the proper tool and appearing to be accomplishing the task that was required of him.  However, all of a sudden – he was faced with a dilemma.  The very tool that he was using for advancement – which wasn’t even his, (he had borrowed it) – had vanished into the river – never to return again…. So he thought.

When you are faced with a dilemma – who is your first line of defense?  Many times we turn to a spouse, friend, colleague or family member.  Our servant in this story cried to his master.  He cried to someone who had the wisdom, faith and the solution to recover for him what he had lost.

The axehead in this story can represent any tool (or weapon), that’s necessary for me to be effective as I attempt to move towards my advancement.  Or any tool (or weapon) used to bring down, cut down or cut through diabolical plans or natural road blocks.  The servant had temporarily lost sight of his weapon.  However with the proper guidance, and instruction, he was able to see the return of his valuable tool.  So, just remember that your situation isn’t hopeless; no matter how it may appear to you. 

It is only when we are in the proper place; receiving the proper supervision; anchored by the proper support and obeying the instructions which are given to us - that we will be able to cause our “axhead” to float again.

The servant had to DO something.   He didn’t just sit and weep about his situation.  He didn’t just tell his friends or colleagues. He told his MASTER! He told someone who had the wisdom to correct the dilemma, and the power to bring about the recovery of want he had lost.  The servant may have had faith, however “Faith” without corresponding actions – is dead.

As we are in this season of recovery; expect your axehead to float again.  Expect every weapon that is needed for your advancement in this season to be recovered.  Expect the outcome of every situation that appears to be impossible; receive an immediate reversal.

 So go now and recover your axehead – but don’t do it your way (leaning to your own understanding!). You must listen to and adhere to the voice of your Master!  You must listen to the voice of wisdom….which may be delivered to you by God directly through His word or by someone who can provide you with the careful and watchful guidance. 

Your axehead will float again.  However you must be in the proper place, listening to the voice of your Master and doing only that which is relevant in this season for your recovery.  

                                   “Wise men and women are always learning, always listening for fresh insights.”     Proverbs 18:15 (MSG)

Are My Connections Productive?

Are My Connections Productive?

“Iron sharpens iron; and one man sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17

 

As we search throughout the scriptures, we can observe that the relationships which people were involved in were of grave importance.  Therefore, we must realize the significance of becoming associated with and connected to the right people. 

Connections should be for the purpose of increase.  Therefore I should be either the provider or the receiver – but increase is a must.  Wrong, non-productive relationships would be considered one of those “weights which does so easily beset us” (Hebrews 12:1). 

So let’s consider some of our connections.  What do our: friends, acquaintances, religious and secular group memberships reveal?  Are there any connections where I am currently not being increased – or increasing someone else?  Some connections are temporary; seasonal - while others maintain the ability to perpetually be an asset to us in some fashion.   When we don’t know the purpose for a relationship, nor have considered its nature – we will attempt to cling on to and transform those “passing connections” into permanent ones.

Simply because of the Covid-19 restrictions; many people are limiting their connections to the media sources in some fashion.  Therefore,  we must adhere to precautions more intently than in times past.  We are in the era now where everyone seems to want to “network”. Everywhere you go people are wanting to connect. This can be advantageous as well as detrimental.   We must be on our guard at all times and realize that every good connection may not be a God connection. 

As we approach the end of this year and this season, let’s survey our connections.  Are there those relationships that should be eliminated?  Be determined that those “blood sucking”, non – productive, eternal leeches and carbuncles will not be carried into the new year!  Be determined that you will venture out into new connections to include those that will offer completely difference experiences for yourself and others. 

God has given us to the ability to be sociable creatures.  We therefore need connections.  However, we must be certain that every connection will be constructive and offer increase, integrity, stamina and above all receive a stamp of approval from the Lord.

Isaiah 43:19 ESV

Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

Clutter, Clutter, Clutter….Why The Clutter????

"At the end of seventy years, the Lord will visit Tyre, and she will return to her wages and will prostitute herself with all the kingdoms of the world on the face of the earth. Her merchandise and her wages will be holy to the Lord. It will not be stored or hoarded, but her merchandise will supply abundant food and fine clothing for those who dwell before the Lord."                                 Isaiah 23:17-18 (NIV)

 

Have you ever taken the time to consider why you feel the need to keep in your possession all of the items that you are not readily using?  Most of us have a collection of some things that we aren’t using…. From clothing that we are “some day” going to wear; to dishes, to magazines to, to jewelry… and the list is endless!  The question is, “Why are we still holding on to them?”

There could be many reasons why we feel “comfortable” in keeping all of our possessions.   Many times the spirit of fear is the underlying culprit.  He has come in and is “holding the door open” for his buddies: doubt, pride, procrastination and everyone else to enter.  In other words are you holding on to “your stuff” because you feel as though you might need it one day? (Fear of Lack! .. apply Philippians  4:19)  Or because you feel as though you’ve paid too much for it and someone else won’t properly appreciate it as you do? (That’s probably Pride!.. apply Philippians 2:3 )  Or simply because you haven’t taken to time t o get rid of it? (Possibly Procrastination! Proverbs 6:6)

Whatever the reason – the time has come; especially because we are about to enter into a new calendar; for us to get rid of whatever we are not using.  God has called us to be a channel and a sower; not a hoarder or a packrat!  We are asking God for increase.  We are asking God to return ALL that has been loss, taken or stolen.  However as we receive – no….let’s make a correction – BEFORE we receive…..we are to begin to sow at an accelerated rate!   Listen!  If you have an array of items that you aren’t using in the natural – guess what? That’s probably a revelation of what’s going on in your spirit man!  Most of us have become comfortable in permitting God to use us in a given area. Yet, we still have other gifts within us that are just not being used.  We have permitted spiritual clutter to prevent us from exceling, by allowing that clutter to block the access to many relevant opportunities.  

How do I get rid of spiritual clutter?  By first repenting.  Then, by asking God to identify the clutter and to reveal the areas where I’m bound by clutter.  Lastly, by refusing to permit such clutter as, “the opinions of others”, to “lock me in” in a given area.  I must remember to maintain a sense of freedom and ask God activate those gifts and callings which are lying dormant with in me. 

Once we have become “de-cluttered”, the only way to avoid becoming cluttered again is to change our mindset!  Whatever reason you used to justify your clutter in the past is no longer acceptable!  Develop strategies that will afford you the opportunity to be more of a giver in both the spiritual and natural realms … and you will be amazed at how the Lord will begin to restore to you ALL that has been stolen….. and clutter will no longer be onboard!

Every Wise Sower  Can Now Expect Seven New Seasons!

Recently the voice of the Lord, uttered through one of His devoted and actuate prophetic voices; released the following declarations.  The prophet also stated that some of these have already begun to transpire; however, we will begin to witness them all in the near future. 

Therefore, if you have been a good steward over the little; God will now permit you to become the ruler of much. If you have been a wise unselfish sower – REGARDLESS to your own current situations or circumstances ; the Lord will now release unto you your new seasons! 

7 New Seasons

  1. Season of Abundance (Malachi 3:10)
  2. Season of Joy………. (John 16:2)
  3. Season of Peace……..(Isaiah 26:3)
  4. Season of Favor……..(Psalm 84:11)
  5. Season of Harvest……(Galatians 6:9)
  6. Season of Power……...(I John 3:8)
  7. Season of Intimacy…… (Jeremiah 31:3; 33:3)

One relevant fact is that these seasons will not be terminated nor expire!  These seasons will continue to prevail as long as we walk uprightly before the Lord!  

Let us continue to stand on the promises of God.  The tables have begun to turn in our favor!  Hallelujah! 

So let us walk with a renewed hope and determination as this year ends and we enter 2021 with joy, excitement and confidence! HALLELUJAH!!!!

Are You Equipped To Press?  Are You Prepared for WAR?!

Ephesians 6:13-18 (The Message Bible) states, “Be prepared! You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting, you’ll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You’ll need them throughout your life. God’s Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.”

Therefore, let us stand yielded to God and seeking Him for the “Power To Press Beyond”!!!

Power To Press Beyond 

(Written by Apostle Claudia Boatwright ©2003)

Father in Jesus’ name, I thank you for the innate force within me that prompts me to seek a deeper revelation of you. 

For my only desire in pressing beyond this realm is to obtain a greater insight of you and your solemnness; thus enabling me to not walk on the surface, but to have available to me those hidden, partially revealed spiritual treasures that are vital at this time.  These “jewels” are required for me to excel and will afford me the opportunity to properly lead others.

Lord God, I thank you that I have learned how to persevere and to press beyond the obstacles, the road blocks and the detour signs - the hidden snares designed to delay your divine will for my life.  Thank you for the courage to press; - that courage which is required to recognize and discern; to subdue and call to naught every demonic and satanic force sent to oppose me on every level.  I now know how to press through and not request that you remove from me difficult situations….. For I recognize that all of these have been foreordained for my advancement.

Since you have told me that the best is in the press, I will press into you at any cost.   I will press beyond the feelings of defeat, frustration, adversity and opposition. I will press beyond the spirits of despair, dejection and rejection.  I have learned that I must press beyond any of the feelings in my flesh, and rely only what my spirit discerns for you. Then and then only will I maintain this realization that in my press, YOU will never deny me.  

So forgetting those things which are behind, I press.

Growing and still maturing in the process, I press.

Awaiting your divine intervention……..

I press, I press, I PRESS!!!

Remember!  It’s Already Done…Just Receive It!

“Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.”   Luke 10:19 (AMP)

 

Are you waiting for God to “give” to you something that He has already made available for you to receive?  I’ve recently been hearing quite a few people expressing that they are waiting for God to “move” in a given situation…. waiting for God to heal them; waiting for God to deliver… and the list could go on. 

We must come to the realization that in most circumstances, we are waiting for God to do something that He has already made the provision for.   Usually, because we don’t have the proper knowledge (my people perish for lack of knowledge!  Hosea 4:6); we don’t know that we only have to RECEIVE the provision that has already been made available to us.  We have to also remember that our words have the power to change any situation (death and life ARE in the power of MY tongue.  Proverbs 18:21).

Here’s an example.  One Sunday morning when I awoke, my eye was swollen, red, feeling scratchy and was inflamed.  I didn’t run to the hospital or call the doctor.   My FIRST response was to turn to the Lord.   Now, when I looked at it, I could have said, “I have conjunctivitis (pink eye)”.  However, I said, “Lord, I receive your healing for my eye in the name of Jesus.”  As I washed it with warm salt water; I further said, “Now Lord as I do this in the natural, I expect you to apply your “Super” to my “Natural” so that this eye can RECEIVE total healing. The entire process maybe took 5 or 10 minutes.  My eye still appeared to be unchanged.  However, because I am walking by FAITH and not by SIGHT… the natural appearance of my eye didn’t matter.  Then I proceeded to get ready for church.  Well, before I went to church, my eye had RECEIVED the healing most of the swelling and redness was gone.  By the time a arrived at church, my eye was back to normal!  

So, I didn’t ask God to heal my eye.  I didn’t wait to “see” what was going to happen.   Why? Because He has already told me that He has given ME power over all sickness and disease.  God will never do something that He has given us the power to do.  Therefore, I had to do my part – which was to stand on the Word of God.  Not to beg and plead with Him to do something.   

Usually, our problem isn’t that we don’t have the power.  Our dilemma is that we don’t know how to properly apply the power that has been given to us.   Far too often we are synonymous to a starving person, who sits beside a refrigerator which is full of cooked food; and still praying day after day for the Lord to fill their hungry stomach; while constantly telling the Lord that they are hungry!  Then this person dies of starvation.... only because they didn’t know to open the refrigerator and to eat as much as the needed.

Healing…. For EVERY aspect of my being; spiritual, emotional, financial, etc.; has already been made available.  If I truly believe that Jesus bore all of my sicknesses and diseases (Isaiah 53:5) – then why would I have to ask God to do something that has already occurred? 

Daily, our level of faith must be increased.  We must begin to believe that our God is who He proclaims to be. The reason why it is imperative that we study the names of God is so that our minds can grasp a physical concept of who God is in the realm of the Spirit.  Therefore, as we learn to continually renew our minds; then our thoughts will change; and then the words that we release from our mouths will change.   We will learn how to phrase our words so that we will release our statements from a positive rather than negative platform.   So, instead of saying, “I don’t have that much faith”,… you would say something like, “My level of faith needs to be increased and is increasing”.  Instead of saying, “I feel sick”…. Say something like, “I feel like I need to apply some healing” would be said.

I challenge you to begin to curtail the words which you release from your mouth into the realm of the spirit.

Remember……the Word of God does work…. I must learn how to WORK the WORD! We must stop making excuses for not using our ability to totally stand on the Word of God.    …..Because, Remember!  It’s Already Done.. I just have to Receive the manifestation!!!!

“….Lord I believe…Help thou my unbelief.”  Mark 9:24

At Any Cost…YOUR Fire Must Remain Ablaze

“Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.”  James 1:22

 

If you can remember some of the lessons from your chemistry class; one of the first lessons was probably on the composition of fire.  As a reminder, three elements are required to cause the chemical reaction to occur that we call fire. They are: oxygen, fuel and heat.  If one of these components is missing…. there will be no fire. 

Fire likes to spread, and when it touches ANYTHING it will attempt to engulf it.  Fire will test whatever is in its path to measure the tangibility of its composure. If a fire is going to continue to burn and increase in intensely – it must maintain its fuel supply. 

What about your inward fire?  Sometimes, our spiritual fires have been ignited, but if we haven’t provided the adequate fuel line to feed our fires….. they burn themselves out. Are you snuffing out your flame?  Is your flame struggling to stay lit?  Has the sin of: disobedience, worry, ignorance, impatience or that cunning spirit of “leviathan” caused there to be a break or a leak in your fuel line…and now the flame of your fire is just flickering instead of blazing? 

When we have the fire of the Holy Ghost burning on the inside, He will; because of the complexity of His nature, possess the ability to perform a multi-faceted purpose. He will protect and defend; be an offensive as well as a defensive barrier and enable us with the ability to live a productive life. He will spread and ignite everything that is within us; and conform it to His likeness….if we permit Him to do so.  

We must be determined to keep our fire blazing. The Holy Spirit will assist us – but we must do our part.   To maintain our spiritual fire, we must also supply Him with the three required substances. It is mandatory that we have: the oxygen (our submitted will); the fuel (supplying a proper spiritual diet) and the heat (continual line of communication with the Father). 

Therefore, In the midst of every “happening”………. Keep Your Fire Ablaze!

Whether the conditions are positive or negative……..Keep Your Fire Ablaze!

Whether your environment is pleasurable or disagreeable ……Keep Your Fire Ablaze!

Whatever mindset you have encountered…………….Keep Your Fire Ablaze!

Remember… You are a WARRIOR!  You are an OVERCOMER!!!  A Warrior allows and develops a mental strategy.  An Overcomer allows and implements that strategy.  Henceforth, YOU KNOW NO DEFEAT!

Therefore, I challenge you to gird up the loins of your mind …..at any cost, be determined that you will....  Keep Your Fire Ablaze!!! 

“Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.”  I Corinthians 15:5

I Can’t Permit My Riches to Replace His Richest!

 “The Eye of the Needle”

“And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”         Matthew 19:24, Mark 10:25, Luke 18:25

 

When doing some research, one reference source explains the “eye of the needle” as a secondary gate which was used at night when the primary entrance had already been sealed for the evening.  This gate was much smaller in height and width than the main gate.  The only way that a camel could enter would be to get down on its knees, be stripped of all of its baggage and guided carefully though.

In our text, the Lord isn’t condemning anyone for being rich; however the warning is being given to all who have excelled in obtaining material gain.  Be your riches in the areas of: finances, education, prestige, or in any other area; whatever you have acquired in excessive must not replace your love and allegiance to the Lord.  Far too often, when someone begins to “move up the ladder” their level of dedication, integrity, and loyalty to the Lord gradually begins to diminish.  

We have read for years that the wealth of the wicked is laid up for the just.  We have also heard about the great release of finances that is on the onset for those who have been faithful.

As you continue to receive your endtime release, it is imperative that you increase your devotion and admiration to and for the Lord. 

Don’t lose your focus.  One of the concepts concerning the eye of the needle that is relevant for today is this: we must be willing to be stripped of everything for the cause of Christ.  We must not become so attached to anything - that we will not release it at a command from the Lord.  We must never consider ourselves too “important” to get down on our hands, knees and faces in the presence of the Lord (Give no place to the spirit of pride!)

The eye of the needle can also be symbolic to entering into the holy of holies in the realm of the spirit.  We must be stripped of everything prior to the Lord granting us permission to enter. Many people are “saved”; however not everyone who has accepted Christ as their Saviour  will be given access to the “holy of holies” in the realm of the spirit.   To gain access requires one to value their relationship with the Lord to the degree that they are willing to surrender any and everything, for and to Him. 

Again I reiterate: Don’t Lose Your Focus!  The tables have begun to turn and the imminent release to the true Saints is no longer pending – it’s here!  However, if we are going to retain all that we receive, we must maintain our relationship with the Lord; and increase in our devotion to Him.  Our hearts must remain pliable to the leading of the Holy Spirit.  When we totally surrender our hearts – then whatever is in our hands will automatically flow though us.  We must never forget that we are always blessed to be a blessing   Never neglect the opportunity to be a sower.  You have precious seed that must be released.

Don’t be compared to the rich young ruler (Matthew 19:16-26).   Daily remind yourself that you must be able and willing to forsake it all for the cause of Christ. 

I challenge you in this season to become more alert in the realm of the spirit.  Fine tune your ear to hear the quiet -yet thunderous voice of the Holy Spirit.  Above all…. remain disciplined enough to pass through the eye of the needle…. And Don’t Your Riches to Replace His RICHEST!!!!

WAKE UP!  Have Your Spiritual Ears Been Awaken?

“………..but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.”  Romans 6:13b

What have you sensed in the realm of the spirit recently?  Have your ears become so clogged with the fear and confusion that is currently invading the atmosphere, that you are no longer as sensitive in the realm of the Spirit as you should be?  Have the cares of this world desensitized your discerning properties that are required for this season?

Yet another new sound has been dispatched from the heavens and is seeking new instruments.  This sound is also seeking the instruments that have the ability to receive it and blend it properly so that it forms a new complexed chord! 

In this season, we must listen with the ear of our spirit for the new chord.  It is emerging from the realm which is far above the enemy’s reign.  Only a disciplined, focused spirit will have the ability to recognize this sound.  As it is heard, we must receive it into our spirits.  Then it becomes our responsibility to share it and to instruct others in the proper disciplinary spiritual insights; which are required for them to become “new instruments”. 

This new sound, as we received it, and bring it to the earth, will be blended by many.  It transcends every diversity that has prevented unity in the believers of Christ.  We will all, as one body receive it and released back to the Lord!  It will ascend 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 enable our souls to become transformed into the expressed mind and will of God.  Now, when this occurs, our minds will have the capability of becoming freed from previous non-profitable mindsets; our bodies will be disciplined to the extent that they will freely yield and be totally brought under the subjection of the Holy Ghost;…..  and we will truly be presented as a living sacrifice.  In other words the true meaning of Romans 12:1 &2 will be demonstrated through our lives. 

Many 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…. Therefore, their praises unto the Lord ascend as one sound .. as one sweet smelling savor unto Him!

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, another new sound has been released…..Awaken your “Spiritual Ears” to receive it and encourage other to do the same.

“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19

 Servanthood…What’s Your Motivation?

(Responsibility or Compassion)

“Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.  If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.”  John 13:13 & 14

 

Do I have the heart of a servant?  Has my mind been renewed to the extent that servanthood is emanating from my every action?   We must always bear in mind that everything that Christ exampled was motivated from the platform of a heart that generated unconditional love.  He  attempted to show us that it matters not what the task; if love is present; then that love will override any other emotion that we may experience. (I Corinthians 13

A true servant has a heart of unconditional love for their master.   Therefore, they place no limitations on the duties that they graciously will perform – for their master. 

When Jesus washed His disciple’s feet; He was mirroring to them a display of His unconditional love for them – which produced the ability to become a servant.

Far too often when we read this narrative; we focus on doing the work of a servant and not on the motivation for doing the work.  However, we must also realize that doing the work of a servant, which is not motivated from a heart of love, is simply fulfilling a responsibility and not showing an act of compassion.   God’s desire for us is that we are so filled with His love; that whatever task we must undertake, we will be motivated from a heart of His unconditional love.    He desires that His love has so renewed our thought patterns; that our thoughts have now produced the mentality of a true servant.

A true servant must possess the ability to:

S – Sacrifice ; Philippians 3:7-8 ESV  “But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake    of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ.”

E – Encourage (others):  1 Thessalonians 5:11 ESV  “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”

R be Reliable : 1 Corinthians 15:58 ESV  “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”

V – be Vigilant: Ephesians 6:10-18 ESV

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm, Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,….”

A -  be Alert: 1 Peter 5:8 ESV “Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”

N - Never Give Up: Galatians 6:9 ESV  “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”

T – be Trustworthy: 1 Corinthians 4:2 ESV “Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy.”

So to recap….a true servant has received that degree of unconditional love that has now produced within them the mentality of: Sacrifice, Encouragement, Reliability, Vigilance, Alertness, and Trustworthiness.  Above all a true servant will have a gift of endurance….. which will enable them to …Never Give Up on anything!

 Are your expressions of servanthood motivated from the platform of responsibility or compassion? 

To do the work of a servant is commendable.

However, to have the heart of a servant is exceptional and requires a renewed mindset!  Remember man sees WHAT we do….but God knows WHY we are doing it!
