Dreams Really Do Come True

Ya know, God is not slack concerning His promises.
His Word tells us it is HIS good pleasure to give us the Keys to the Kingdom. Every Promise in Christ Jesus is YES! and Amen! (So Be It.)

Mat 7:7 (AMP) Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you.

Time frame is not given, but assurance is.

There is something that I've wanted. I first asked for it 5 mos. ago. There was NO response. Then recently something came up and the thing I wanted became something that was really needed, but still the answer was silent.

Then SUDDENLY, there it was, the answer I had hoped for, was given. A gift laid in my lap, given in love! I've had several such gifts given to me. Never at the time I thought they should be, but when they came, they were so much more!

What is it YOU are waiting for? Have you almost given up hope? Does your dream seem very far away? Hang on to it! Dont let go! Keep believing, even if you have to wait. The wait will be worth it. God is patiently at work!

Pro 13:12 (GW) Delayed hope makes one sick at heart, but a fulfilled longing is a tree of life.

Gal 6:9 (AMP) And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint.

Php 2:13 (WNT) For it is God Himself whose power creates within you the desire to do His gracious will and also brings about the accomplishment of the desire.

Even now Father God, I call forth into existence the very reality of those things for them that are within the reach of my influence. I thank you for establishing Your desires within them. I thank you that they are BLESSED to be a Blessing! I thank you for bringing forth, if even out of nothing, the very existence of the things that have been in embryo state. No miscarriages or abortions of their dreams. Even as You Abba have blessed me, you are NO respecter of persons. Bless them in Jesus Name. Amen.

His Majesty Awaits you

As I came into the lunch room today CNN
(constantly negative news) was on.

They were giving a White House briefing.
The spokesperson was outlining some
of the President's itinerary.
He mentioned, " and he will be meeting
with Her Majesty..." and out of my spirit rolled these words:

"He may be meeting with Her Majesty Queen of England,
but I meet
with HIS Majesty any time I want.
I have an open and standing invitation
HIS Throne room!"
And you do too.
Come and let us go at once to see our King!

Heb 4:16 (YLT) we may come near, then, with freedom, to the throne of the grace, that we may receive kindness, and find grace--for seasonable help.

Heb 10:21-23 And since we have [such] a great and wonderful and noble Priest [Who rules] over the house of God, Let us all come forward and draw near with true (honest and sincere) hearts in unqualified assurance and absolute conviction engendered by faith (by that leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness), having our hearts sprinkled and purified from a guilty (evil) conscience and our bodies cleansed with pure water. So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is reliable (sure) and faithful to His word.

Majesty, worship his majesty;
Unto Jesus be all glory, honor, and praise.
Majesty, kingdom authority,
Flow from his throne unto his own, his anthem raise.
So exalt, lift up on high the name of Jesus.
Magnify, come glorify Christ Jesus, the King.
Majesty, worship his majesty,
Jesus who died, now glorified, King of all kings.

Jack W. Hayford 1980

Take me past the outer courts
Into the secret place,
Past the brazen altar,
Lord, I want to see Your face.
Pass me by the crowds of people,
The priests who sing Your praise;
I hunger and thirst for Your righteousness
And it’s only found in one place.

Take me in to the Holy of Holies,
Take me in by the blood of the Lamb;
Take me in to the Holy of Holies,
Take the coal, cleanse my lips,
Here I am.
Take the coal, cleanse my lips,
Here I am.

Reconnection, reconciliation and things falling into place

Don't you know it is the Father's good pleasure to give you the keys to the kingdom. In My Kingdom is perfect harmony. In My kingdom, life flows freely and abundantly. Today if you will but ask Me in sincerity and believe in My Goodness towards you, you will see the Kingdom unfold for you. Things long awaited will fall into place. People will be brought back to you, restoration will be sweet. Walk in the assurance of My Love and in the authority of My Power. I've given you all that you need to succeed. Believe it, receive it, conceive it and bring it forth. Destiny lies at your fingertips if you will but grab hold of Me and not let go! I AM in My Word, in My instructions to you, in My Promises. When you latch on to them, you are latching on to ME and I will cause all resistance to flee as you become conformed to the image of what I already see you to be. Rest in Me my child and it shall be!

Jeremiah 29:13 (AMP) Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. [Deuteronomy 4:29-30]

Matthew 7:7 (AMP) Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you.

Colossians 1:20 (MSG) Not only that, but all the broken and dislocated pieces of the universe--people and things, animals and atoms--get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies, all because of his death, his blood that poured down from the Cross.

Holy is The Bride

This song of the Lord was given to me during prayer the other day:

Kadosh Kaaa dosh Kadosh Kaaa dosh

Holy is the Lord Holy is His Name

Holy is the Lord Holy Holy Holy!

Kadosh Kaaa dosh Kadosh Kaaa dosh

Holy is the Lord Holy is His Name

Holy is His Love Holy is He

I am Holy, Holy Holy Holy

I am Holy. Holy is my Name

My Love is Holy, I’ve called You to be the same.

Holy is the Lord, Holy is His Name

Holy is The Bride Holy is Her Name!


There was such protectiveness and a Reverence

in the Lord’s voice towards His Bride when

He said this through the Song of the Lord!

Later, as I was writing to my Dad and

sharing with him

I found myself commenting

(and hearing the heart of the Lord as I wrote it)

on some things that happened in a church service

where the anointing had been merchandised and

the Presence of the Holy Spirit disrespected...

"Trading the Gold for brass.... clanging gong.

Puffed self importance,

lack of trust in Abba to provide.

Money Changers in the temple
One day Jesus is going to Stand up and say;

“ENOUGH! Reverence the Holy.”

Oh my!

God spoke very forcefully tonight about His Bride!

(I perceive)

He does not appreciate her being bruised, trampled,

or man handled in ANYWAY!

The song He gave me...
(wish I'd had my recorder with me)
Kadosh- Holy
part of it said so forcefully:

"Holy is the Lord, Holy is MY name
Holy is my Bride Holy is HER Name".

I have never heard that before and it really hit me... the protectiveness and

reverence He shows towards His Bride!

It gives me a whole new prospective and deeper

respect of the status of the Bride.

And MY status as His Bride! But also my responsibility

as a Minister to His sheep

( I respected the sheep and was careful before-

but I am going to be more so now!)

Isa 30:29 You shall have a song as in the night when a holy feast is kept, and gladness of heart as when one marches in procession with a flute to go to the temple on the mountain of the Lord, to the Rock of Israel.

Song 8:14

(AMP) [Joyfully the radiant bride turned to him, the one altogether lovely, the chief among ten thousand to her soul, and with unconcealed eagerness to begin her life of sweet companionship with him, she answered] Make haste, my beloved, and come quickly, like a gazelle or a young hart [and take me to our waiting home] upon the mountains of spices!

Heaven's Heart is Beating for You!

Tonight a girlfriend and I got into some prayer together.
Most of it centered around the Bride and Bridegroom,
with some about
Revival and Awakening also. I will only whet your whistle with just a nugget:

We had been praying and then were sharing
about what God showed us.

My friend was talking about the Bride laying her head
on the chest of the Groom and
hearing His heartbeat. And each beat meant something different and had a message.

I found myself saying, "There is a place in God..."
but I never finished the sentence
God finished it for me with these words:

"It is beside My Heart. In that place Love flows.
Streams of mercy, streams of Revelation
flow...healing flows...
If you want to understand you must stand beside My Heart.

You MUST be that close."

And I saw a huge heart beating and pumping and there was a
flow of clear pale red liquid coming
out from under it,
like water flowing from under a door. And to understand all
that the flow held, to understand where it was going,
what it's purpose was, you HAD to be standing
right next to the heart.

That is where HE wants you to be. Not just by His side, but inside-
next to His heart,
listening intently, feeling it's rhythms,
understanding it's flow. You can't understand it

from the outside or from afar. You must be CLOSE.

"Will you come close to ME?" asks the Lord. "No, come closer still..."
What will you answer?

Affirming You

My child I want to affirm you
But first I must de-worm you
of the parasites sucking My Life out of you.

My love is already ratified
By the blood shed and the cross
on which My Son died.

Yet you run everywhere for others to validate
Just come to ME- your doubts I'll eliminate
Yes, your fears I'll eradicate.

Every Promise of Mine is true
My Word I'll quicken again to you
My plans I will confirm in you.

Don't let the world contaminate
Instead your Faith must Propagate
Until My Church I consummate!

copyright 2009 NEM

Heb (AMP) 13:20-21 Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament), [Isaiah 55:3; 63:11; Ezekiel 37:26; Zechariah 9:11] Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages). Amen (so be it).

"Today, today I say you must pray"

I got this the other day from my friend Joan.
I told her it needed to be shared and she graciously consented

to me posting it. Men, just because she sent it to her good girlfriends doesn't let you off the hook!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
I'm shooting this out to my beloved friends today -
Today, today I say you must pray.
Pray for wisdom for things to come,
pray for God's will in the earth to be done.
Pray for God's grace, an extended hand,
pray for His mercy upon our land.
Keep things intact, there will be no lack,
the saints are protected, His plan is perfected.
Position, position against the enemy you see, he's swift and
he's cunning as can be, but we send him running
when we pray, when we pray,
so don't delay, don't delay I say, this is the day,
don't delay, we must pray, can you hear what I say.
This is the season, the season of the King,
let us soak in the season for He is the reason.
A season of assurance, He'll give the endurance.
Don't sweat nor fret cause every need will be met.
My sisters, let our hearts beat as one, yay,
in one accord as we soak in the season of the Lord.
In the matchless name of Jesus. Amen --3/17/2009 Joan E. Johnson

A Vision and Word for Africa

My Dad (Pastor Rusty Bowles) just sent me an email and the Lord gave (me) a Word concerning it's contents.

"Attached to this email is a vision that was shared with me recently by a
sister in the Lord. It should be great encouragement!"

Vision, further explanation and Word of the Lord concerning Africa:

Vision Regarding Africa


On this day as I was driving west on 190 and worshiping the Lord, I was watching the road as I drove to Denton, Tx. for an appointment. There were no cars in front of me or to the sides of me. The freeway in front of me was clear and appeared to be very clean. The white stripes on the freeway appeared very pronounced.

I was listening to a Keith Green CD in which he was singing a song called

“Holy, Holy, Holy”. The music became very rhythmic almost like a steady stomping cadence. I felt almost like I myself was marching.

Suddenly, I saw a great army ahead of me, with every beat of the music the army grew greater and clearer. It was as if the stripes on the freeway were the people in the army. I saw Africa, an army coming out of Africa. An army in white robes; a royal priesthood; a holy generation. I saw the center row of people carrying golden staves and understood immediately that they were carrying the Word of the Lord.

And I saw rather than heard the words:

“Today is the day that Africa will know that she is the head and not the tail.”

Maria Frenkel

~ ~ ~

Maria was on a freeway - a HIGHWAY when this happened... It is the Highway of Holiness, It is the Pathway of the Lord that those called out of darkness (the "dark continent" Africa) into HIS marvelous light are emerging onto.

The center row is the "Core" and at the Core is the GOLDEN Word of God held by those who carry both the WRITTEN and the RHEMA Word of GOD; and all who will have gathered unto them. (I am reminded of the scripture "And are built upon the foundation of the Apostles and the Prophets, Jesus Himself being the chief corner stone." and then I “saw” the Priests carrying the Ark of the Covenant leading Israel through the Red Sea!)

The STAVE represents putting to death the things of the flesh, the world and all that is at enmity with GOD, 2 Cor 10: 4-5 casting down, tearing down strongholds and every high thing that exalts itself against the Knowledge of God.

For know this says the Lord, My Word shall have free course and those who run with the Vision and the Words I have spoken with gather together My army. For I am calling a people unto myself. they are a treasure that has been hidden in darkness, but the Light of My Word is shining brighter and brighter and the darkness is running! No longer will it be the cries of the poor and the pitiful that is heard coming out of Africa, it shall be the ROAR of my Army as they emulate the Lion of Judah, as they step onto the Highway of Holiness, the Pathways of Peace and Prosperity for their souls, the WAY of my Covenant that I made with them upon the Cross. No longer shall they be looked down upon. They shall hold their heads high and move forward with a dignity and determination, with a strength and a joy that is unstoppable, uncontainable! Their journey has been long and has wended in and out of the bedrooms of many, but they shall no longer be slaves to the lusts of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, the pride of mere men. They shall be be clean before me. They shall walk uprightly. They shall carry my scepter of Righteousness, executing judgment upon the forces of darkness that have long held
Africa captive. They shall march in freedom and none shall stop them, for none shall stop what I AM doing, thus says the Lord.

Heaven's Heartbeat Speaks

I can only imagine. But I can't really-none of us can... until we've been there. And when we've been there 10 thousand years bright shining as the sun, we've no less days to sing His praise, than when we've first begun.

My friend called me tonight to say a very dear loved one has gone home to be with the Lord. Home! The final journey. None wants to think about or talk about death, yet somewhere deep within us there is a longing for "Home." Jesus calls death an enemy. God didn't create us to die. That is why death is our enemy. God created us to live forever to fellowship with Him. He desired us then and He desires us now.

"Take the blinders off! Look up- your redemption draweth nigh. I AM knocking at the door of your hearts. It is time for My Glory to be seen. Oh yes, there will be magnificent displays. Wonders to be seen in Heaven and Earth. But for all these, the ones I am reserving with anticipation are the ones I will wrought in and through YOU!

Do you not know I am waiting for you to pull Heaven down to earth?!! I am waiting for you to really understand "My kingdom come, My Will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven." I am poised. Ready to pour out my fire- the fire of my desire for my Bride...the fire of my longing through the ages. Get ready to receive it!

The fire of My indignation against all that would try to quench My love affair! I'll NOT be stopped and I won't stop until I have consumed you. Until there is nothing left but white hot coals fit for my altar.

I will not be withheld from what I love! Feel the heat of My Passion for you. Feel the longing of my heart. Fear the fury of my wrath upon the things that have sought to to trap you, tried to snare you, keep you locked away from ME. I will be ruthless in my vengence upon the enemy of your soul. I will relish the final face off!

But my creation! I hear you groaning , I hear you weeping. The cup is filling fast with your tears, even as the cup is being filled with the gathering evil. Do not fear! Soon I will be here! Until then my Bride, stay under the canopy of My love, the tent of my protection, the mandate of my direction. Walk the streets with an awareness that I AM passing by as you walk. You are carrying ME everywhere with you. Even as my Son and the Prophets before Him cried out saying, "Repent! the kingdom of Heaven is at hand!", truly I AM at hand when you go forth into the land in the Postion, Power, and Proper Attire.

For though you are warriors of Mine, you are also my Lovers Divine. And when you come to Me and your eyes I see, shining full of Love for ME, I melt with love for you as only a Lover can do. My Bride I AM coming for you!"

I Can Only Imagine

I can only imagine
What it will be like
When I walk
By your side

I can only imagine
What my eyes will see
When your face
Is before me
I can only imagine

I can only imagine

Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel
Will I dance for you Jesus or in awe of you be still
Will I stand in your presence or to my knees will I fall
Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all
I can only imagine

I can only imagine

I can only imagine
When that day comes
And I find myself
Standing in the Son

I can only imagine
When all I will do
Is forever
Forever worship You
I can only imagine

I can only imagine


I can only imagine [x2]

I can only imagine
When all I will do
Is forever, forever worship you

I can only imagine

Come Back to the Heart of Worship and Give ME Your Heart

During Worship we sang "Coming back to the Heart of Worship" and I had this vision:

I saw a stage and a huge auditorium. there a a woman who had finished performing. The auditorium was now empty and dark and the spotlight was turned off. She started to walk off the stage to her right, but then turned back and walked to center stage. She stood there and began to sing and worship in that empty auditorium, with all of her heart, for just the pure joy of it- no accolades or applause because no one was there to see or hear it (so she thought.)

Then suddenly the spotlight came back on and she began to worship in song and dance freely. As she worshiped and danced things began to fly off of her and the stage became littered with the things that had fallen off; a mask, a net- like fisherman's netting that entangles, and heavy and cumbersome clothing- appendages that had attached to her heart and life. She was now dancing and worshiping for an audience of ONE.

The woman is me. I tell you that unashamedly and freely. But she is also you- as the Bride of Christ. See, God is a very personal God, and when He speaks it is always to the vessel first, then to the wider intended receivership. He is calling for us! He is asking us to come back to the heart of worship and to give Him our hearts.

In my email today was a message from my adopted Dad. He won't mind if I share the gist of it with you, for it goes along with this. He started a Sat. prayer group some years back. Just he and another pastor. They've remained faithful at it, although for some years it was only the two of them that came out. Now several churches, the pastors and parts of their congregations are involved. Beautiful to behold people hungry for God and His heart with no agenda's of their own. Back to my point though- yesterday in the group God led them to scriptures in Isaiah and Haggai and called for them (and us also) to examine ourselves and ask Him what to fast. God spoke about fasting the things that distract us. They may not be inherently bad, but if it is currently pulling us away from a place of intimacy and hearing Him, then we need to examine this. Whatever He speaks to, we must be willing to obey to draw closer.

This goes in line with the vision this morning. As each of us comes back to "center" and focuses on the Lord and divests ourselves of what hinders and interrupts us, we will find ourselves becoming freer. The less encumbered, the more easily we can respond to Him. The more we respond, the more He can show us and give to us. the more He gives, the more we are able to receive and respond.

ENCUMBERED from the Greek G4049 περισπάω perispaō (per-ee-spah'-o)
[Gee this sounds like perspire to me!]
From G4012 and G4685;
to drag all around, that is, (figuratively) to distract (with care): - cumber. DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF... TO GOD IT'S ALL SMALL STUFF! Don't let situations and/or people "drag you all around!"

I long for the day when I will be able to say like Jesus did- "...for the
prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me." Spiritually, this is already so. But each of us (me included) still have our soul realm to deal with and it is there that too often the enemy will find a toe hold to make our lives miserable. He does this by lobbing thoughts and feelings at us. That is why we must take captive every thought to the obedience of Christ. (2Cor. 10: 3-6)

Thus, our fasting- whether it be food, TV, computer, cell phone, news, shopping, or whatever we are fasting, the fast becomes an act of worship. Indeed, when we become so God Conscious, everything we do then is an act of worship!

As we step onto the darkened stage and we begin to worship God with all of ourselves being given, the Holy Spirit will come and turn on the spotlight. It will illuminate and show off our love to God, but it will also expose those things that are holding tyrannical sway over us.

As we worship we enter into the deep waters of the Spirit and those things begin to lose their hold on us. Like barnacles on the hull of a sea going vessel when it enters the locks or a fresh water channel, the barnacles on our lives cannot stay in the Presence of God! But in order for that to happen, we must not be so busy that we forget how to be intimate with the ONE we are serving.

(AMP) Luk 10:40-42 But Martha [overly occupied and too busy] was distracted with much serving; and she came up to Him and said, Lord, is it nothing to You that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me [to lend a hand and do her part along with me]! But the Lord replied to her by saying, Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things; There is need of only one or but a few things. Mary has chosen the good portion [that which is to her advantage], which shall not be taken away from her.

(AMP) Heb 12:1-3 Therefore then, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us, Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God. [Psalms 110:1] Just think of Him Who endured from sinners such grievous opposition and bitter hostility against Himself [reckon up and consider it all in comparison with your trials], so that you may not grow weary or exhausted, losing heart and relaxing and fainting in your minds.

Come then, enter into the fresh waters of God and be swept away in Him!

When the music fades
And all is stripped away
And I simply come
Longing just to bring
Something that's of worth
That will bless your heart

I'll bring You more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what You have required
You search much deeper within
Through the ways things appear
You're looking into my heart

I'm coming back to the heart of worship
And it's all about You
All about You, Jesus
I'm sorry Lord for the thing I've made it
When it's all about You
It's all about You Jesus

King of endless worth
No one could express
How much You deserve
Though I'm weak and poor
All I have is Yours
Every single breath

I'll bring You more than just a song
For a song in itself
Is not what You have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You're looking into my heart

I'm coming back to the heart of worship
And it's all about You
All about You, Jesus
I'm sorry Lord for the thing I've made it
When it's all about You
It's all about You Jesus

Its all about you

Seen: Time movie of the USA... from Great Depression Days up to now... like a Docu-Drama playing in front of my eyes on a screen. I saw people shuffling through the streets in '28, women going to work in factories many for the 1st time during WWII, families wanting better for their kids in the 50's, , the hippie and drug scene of the 60's and early 70's, First Man of the Moon, ect.

Remembered: A scene from "Happy Days" where Fonz was forced to reveal his "check list" of how he prepares for a date and each step up to the culmination of that date.

Seen: God being removed from various sectors, ie" prayer out of schools,", no 10 commandments in public places, etc. I watched HIM being removed from the fabric of our lives (as a Society) until all that remained was an empty framework.

Seen: A Hollow Egg.

"Each advancement is a step further into the land of milk and honey. As you step into the land, do not forget the One who has given you this land. Who has given you your very lives. I have orchestrated all of this for you, unlocked the knowledge to advance, beamed in Pride as you stepped through doors I opened for you."

"But the further you went into the land and advanced, the more you forgot ME. Return. Come hither! For when you return, you will find more than you have hitherto. For it is STILL my good pleasure to give you the keys of the Kingdom. I do not want a show from you. I do not wish a checklist relationship! I desire ALL of you. Give me all of you and I will in return give you all of Myself, and you shall be My Glory upon this earth."

Isa 30:15 (KJV) For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.

Isa 30:9 Because this is a rebel generation, a people who lie, A people unwilling to listen to anything GOD tells them.
Isa 30:10 They tell their spiritual leaders, "Don't bother us with irrelevancies." They tell their preachers, "Don't waste our time on impracticalities. Tell us what makes us feel better.
Isa 30:11 Don't bore us with obsolete religion. That stuff means nothing to us. Quit hounding us with The Holy of Israel."
Isa 30:12 Therefore, The Holy of Israel says this: "Because you scorn this Message, Preferring to live by injustice and shape your lives on lies,
Isa 30:13 This perverse way of life will be like a towering, badly built wall That slowly, slowly tilts and shifts, and then one day, without warning, collapses--
Isa 30:14 Smashed to bits like a piece of pottery, smashed beyond recognition or repair, Useless, a pile of debris to be swept up and thrown in the trash."
Isa 30:15 GOD, the Master, The Holy of Israel, has this solemn counsel: "Your salvation requires you to turn back to me and stop your silly efforts to save yourselves. Your strength will come from settling down in complete dependence on me-- The very thing you've been unwilling to do.
Isa 30:16 You've said, 'Nothing doing! We'll rush off on horseback!' You'll rush off, all right! Just not far enough! You've said, 'We'll ride off on fast horses!' Do you think your pursuers ride old nags?
Isa 30:17 Think again: A thousand of you will scatter before one attacker. Before a mere five you'll all run off. There'll be nothing left of you-- a flagpole on a hill with no flag, a signpost on a roadside with the sign torn off."
Isa 30:18 But GOD's not finished. He's waiting around to be gracious to you. He's gathering strength to show mercy to you. GOD takes the time to do everything right--everything. Those who wait around for him are the lucky ones.
Isa 30:19 Oh yes, people of Zion, citizens of Jerusalem, your time of tears is over. Cry for help and you'll find it's grace and more grace. The moment he hears, he'll answer.

Zion is calling, children are crying, earth is groaning, New Jerusalem is beckoning and Eternity is crashing in on time. Prepare the hearts, prepare the homes. Prepare ye the Way of the Lord!

Isa. 2: 22(NAS) Stop regarding man, whose breathe of life is in his nostrils: For why should he be esteemed?

Heard: "Man only has the breathe of life in his nostrils,- GOD has the Breathe of Life in His Being. "

Gen. 2:7 (NAS) Then the Lord God formed man of the dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breathe of life, and man
became a living being.

Jas 4:14 (AMP) Yet you do not know [the least thing] about what may happen tomorrow. What is the nature of your life? You are [really] but a wisp of vapor (a puff of smoke, a mist) that is visible for a little while and then disappears [into thin air].

Mat 10:28 (MSG) "Don't be bluffed into silence by the threats of bullies. There's nothing they can do to your soul, your core being. Save your fear for God, who holds your entire life--body and soul--in his hands.

Heard: "The garden you have chosen is not an oasis, it is a mirage."

Cried out in prayer:

Bankrupt in our hearts O Lord
Bankrupt in our homes
Bankrupt of the Spirit's Flow
Bankrupt in our bones
Bankrupt in our spirits Lord
Bankrupt of Your Gold.

God Asks Us:
"Why do you spend for that which cannot satisfy?
Why do you replace the Pure with profane? And Gold with brass?
Why do you chase after fleeting things? Ardently pursuing that which won't last?

When will you turn back from the path YOU have chosen and return to ME and walk in the Way I have laid out from the foundations? The Way of My Covenant, the Way of My Will, the Way that will deliver peace and safety, prosperity of soul and spirit- prosperity of your very life?

Return to Me and I will turn the captivity of your mind, the captivity of your hearts. I will remind you how to dance and be free- free indeed. Free in Me."

Isa 55:2 (AMP) Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your earnings for what does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness [the profuseness of spiritual joy]. [Jeremiah 31:12-14]

Jer 3:22 (GNB) Return, all of you who have turned away from the LORD; he will heal you and make you faithful. You say, "Yes, we are coming to the LORD because he is our God.

Joh 8:36 (KJV) If the Son therefore shall make you free,
ye shall be free indeed.

Garden of Eden or Garden of Evil?

I was reading and studying the other day. The Lord led me to Isaiah (again) As I read the text below, He was just speaking to my heart concerning current events. I am thinking of current political happenings, as well as a prophecy of judgment of destruction to come upon America. Speaking with my Spiritual Dad, he pointed out that when one prophecies judgment upon a whole nation one leaves no room for the righteous in the land. This was AFTER the Lord led me to these scriptures! Read, then I will proceed.

Isa. 1: 27-29 Zion will be redeemed with Justice and her repentant ones with righteousness.
But transgressors and sinners will be crushed together. And those who forsake the Lord shall come to an end. Surly you will be ashamed of the oaks which you have desired, and you will be embarrassed at the gardens which you have chosen. Isa 2:8 Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:

Isa 2:9 And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not.
Isa 2:10 Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.
Isa 2:11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
Isa 2:12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:
Isa 2:13 And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan,

Zion- means Jerusalem, but also symbolic for the Church.
The Church- the Body of Christ will be redeemed with Justice and her repentant ones with Righteousness.

Micah 6:8 (LITV) O man, He has declared to you what is good. And what does Jehovah require of you, but to do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?

Transgressors and sinners will be crushed together. And those who forsake the Lord shall come to an end.

Surly you will be ashamed of the oaks which you have desired, and you will be embarrassed at the gardens which you have chosen.

We are called to be Trees of Righteousness, but instead we are running to oaks of Bashan. Bashan = demonic influences, earthly, sensual and develish wisdom and worldly way of doing things.

But remember God's word to His own:

2Ch 7:14 (AMP) If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.

(MSG) and my people, my God-defined people, respond by humbling themselves, praying, seeking my presence, and turning their backs on their wicked lives, I'll be there ready for you: I'll listen from heaven, forgive their sins, and restore their land to health.

(GW) However, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, pray, search for me, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear their prayer from heaven, forgive their sins, and heal their country.

Eden was prepared by God for man. It operated under blessing and although man was told to tend it, it was to guard and defend and keep it set apart for it's intended and original use-- a meeting place for God and man.

Gen. 3:8 LITV) And they heard the sound of Jehovah God walking up and down in the garden at the breeze of the day. And the man and his wife hid themselves from the face of Jehovah God in the middle of the trees of the garden.

The Lord said the land is filled with idols. What we see in the natural is indicative of what is going on in the spiritual. If the physical land is filled with idols, then may I ask what does the land of our hearts look like to God? Have your tended your Eden? Have your guarded your heart? Is it a place where God can come and meet with you, or are you hiding from Him like Adam and Eve did?

Isa 2:10 Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.

Enter into the ROCK Christ Jesus, and hide yourself in the dust...
Gen 3:19 (AMP) In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you shall return.
Col. 3:3 (KJV) For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

Do you not understand, when MY Glory is revealed all that is unlike my Glory will be judged? I showed Moses my Glory - he saw my Goodness from the back side of it- while standing on the ROCK, hidden in the clefts. If you my children will stand on the Rock- my SON the Lord Jesus Christ, and hide yourself in the Cleft of that Rock- the very side where the spear was thrust...indeed nestle up against His ribcage and under His beating heart that ever lives to make Intercession for you, you shall be protected. Yes, for when I show my Glory and you are in that secret place with ME, then those who look for you, will only see My Glory upon you. They shall wonder and marvel, but they shall not understand, unless it be explained and opened to them.

Isa 60:1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
Isa 60:2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

Do not fear the darkness, be that city set ont he hillside and light up the night with my Glory. Warm up the chill of the darkness with MY LOVE. Turn the direction of your government with My WORD.

2Co 10:2 I beseech you not to compel me when present to make a bold display of the confidence with which I reckon I shall show my 'courage' against some who reckon that we are guided by worldly principles.
2Co 10:3 For, though we are still living in the world, it is no worldly warfare that we are waging.
2Co 10:4 The weapons with which we fight are not human weapons, but are mighty for God in overthrowing strong fortresses.
2Co 10:5 For we overthrow arrogant 'reckonings,' and every stronghold that towers high in defiance of the knowledge of God, and we carry off every thought as if into slavery--into subjection to Christ;
2Co 10:6 while we hold ourselves in readiness to punish every act of disobedience, as soon as ever you as a Church have fully shown your obedience.

But IF you do nothing...or IF you taste of the fruit from the tree of knowledge of Good and Evil, you will have allowed enemy occupation and you will have bitten into the deception and become part of the problem, not the solution I have created you to be. Stand firm! Lift up your voices (of repentance) onto Me. I am listening for your voice. When I hear it, I WILL come down. I will show myself strong on your behalf.

Gen 18:20 (MSG) GOD continued, "The cries of the victims in Sodom and Gomorrah are deafening; the sin of those cities is immense. Gen 18:21 I'm going down to see for myself, see if what they're doing is as bad as it sounds. Then I'll know."

Chosen and Handcrafted in Love

I was contemplating creation the other day...

Do you realize that for moon and stars, trees and fields, seas and rocks, light and dark, God only spoke and they became. God said, "LIGHT BE!" and light was! Yet, when it came to man, God did not say: "MAN BE!" But rather God formed man. (Squeezed into shape.) God laboured over man with love! And He is STILL labouring over us in love, via his precious Holy Spirit!

Psa 8:3 (God's Word) When I look at your heavens, the creation of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have set in place-
Psa 8:4 what is a mortal that you remember him or the Son of Man
that you take care of him?

Psa 8:5 You have made him a little lower than yourself.
You have crowned him with glory and honor.

Psa 8:6 You have made him rule what your hands created.
You have put everything under his control...

Who IS man Lord that you are mindful of him? Who am I that you take notice?

Answer came back to me:

"Who is man? He is my Likeness and Glory. The One I chose to spend Eternity with. (Selah!) Created for MY Pleasure. (Rev. 4:11)"

"And You, my child are my Delight! I take great joy in you and watch you with Love, guiding you with My Eye-for I alone see the horizon and what lies around the next bed. But if you will come up to my eye level then I will show you what you do not yet see. Place yourself in my hand and let me lift you up."

(I had a flash of when I was small and my Dad cupping his hands so I could put my foot into them and he would boost me up onto the back of the huge old work horse we had. High and lifted up!) God DESIRES to lift us up! He delights in you.

When we lift Jesus up- He lifts us up with Himself. The more we lift Him up, the more we are drawn upwards also.

Psa 24:7 (Darby) Lift up your heads, ye gates, and be ye lifted up, ye everlasting doors, and the King of glory shall come in.

Psa 121:1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. Psa 121:2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

Jer 33:3 (AMP) Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).

Oh Lord, how much You love us! Even now we choose to Lift You up. Lift you up in the midst of every circumstance and situation. Lift up Your Word. Lift up OUR expectations of You. Lord we place ourselves in Your Hands. Lift us Lord to that Place in You, where we can see from Heaven's Vantage Point. Thank You Lord for Your manifold blessings and most importantly for WHO YOU ARE!

Wedding Bells and Divine Romance (Monday's post)

I talked with my son Ola tonight. He's in the UK.
He has met a wonderful girl named Adele
and is getting married.
He officially proposed to her this past Saturday!

We've prayed and prayed for a godly wife, speaking it out, and now she is here!
Yes, thank you for your congratulations!

As I was getting ready to do some dishes tonight I was just happily singing inside,
"My son is getting married, my son is getting married"
when I heard Daddy speak to me:

"MY Son is also getting married." "We've been praying for and speaking over His Bride
and planning
the wedding for a long time."


Rev 22:17 (AMP) The [Holy] Spirit and the bride (the church, the true Christians) say, Come! And let him who is listening say, Come! And let everyone come who is thirsty [who is painfully conscious of his need of those things by which the soul is refreshed, supported, and strengthened]; and whoever [earnestly] desires to do it, let him come, take, appropriate, and drink the water of Life without cost. [Isaiah 55:1]

May I Have This Dance?

Turning up the Voice of the Spirit

Pastor has been speaking on this for the past few Sundays. The Holy Spirit asked
a couple of poignant questions today during service in relationship to the scriptures being given.

Rom.8:1 Are we following God, people or flesh? Is God prompting you to be connected with that particular person or are you just following flesh?

Rom.8:8 Is it more important to make sure people or happy, rather than God being happy?

At which point the Holy Spirit gave me this poem:

Flesh screaming, mind reasoning
hanging on tightly to me.
Spirit calling, gently wooing
longing to set me free.

Word speaking, Promises given
Love letters written to my heart.
Grace flowing, spirit growing
Power to overcome every part.

During the altar call I was just quietly singing a new song to the Lord...

Speak to me Lord, speak to me Lord
I want to hear your voice
Speak to me Lord, Speak to me Lord
Speak to my heart -make it Your home.
Speak to me Lord, Speak through me Lord
make my spirit your microphone.

Pastor was calling for people to come to the altar...
Then I had this vision of many hearts opening up and
hands reaching up to the Lord.
As I saw this woman reach her hand
up to God, He reached down and took her hand and
spun her around in a pirouette until she faced the
opposite direction that she had been going in.

Then I saw the Lord dressed in white tails step
alongside and place his hand
on the small of her back and holding them very precisely
He began to lead her in a very graceful and beautiful dance.

I heard Him ask, "May I Have this Dance with You?"

"As you respond to ME, I will turn you and put you on a different path.
As you move in partnership with ME you will glide with grace and ease
in sync and rhythm with Me because this is the path I have chosen
for you to be on. This dance is reserved for you alone.
Only You and I can dance this dance. I will not allow anyone
to cut in on Me once you have consented to having this dance with Me."

"May I have this Dance?"

Psa. 30:11 You have changed my sadness into a joyful dance;
you have taken away my sorrow and surrounded me with joy.

Sat. 3-7-09 God Caught in the Act of Loving YOU!

My darling husband surprised me today at work. I was on my way to lunch, looked out the 2nd floor windows, to see my hubby in the parking lot. Naturally I raced down to see him. He hadn't told me he was coming over. Here he had stopped by to replace my missing spare tire with a new one, so I would not be with out. (I hadn't even realized it wasn't there...)

That is so like you Lord, to be looking out after us. A zillion things going on around us, and you just show up and bless us. Actually You are there all the time, plotting blessings to spring on us. You are looking at the timing of things to create preferential advantage for us. Your favor surrounds us!

I didn't even know my tire was missing, but my husband was working behind the scenes to make sure I had what I needed, BEFORE I needed it. A perfect example of Adonai Jehovah Jireh the God who sees (ahead) our needs and provides.

"Do you know your place in my heart?" I hear God asking us that.
I heard: "It is time for expansion"
I see a corrider like a brass tube... shiny and I am easily moving foward.
Heard: "Move your clock forward."
"Planted deep and well rooted."
"Caught in the act of loving you. "
"Just stopping by and tappin' on the door"

A window popped up on my computer "Clear data now?" I heard: "clearing the way, getting rid of the clutter."

"My beloved children,
Do you yet not know My heart towards you? I've planted you deep with in the chambers of My Love. Your position in me is well rooted, it cannot be shaken. I hold you tightly in My loving grasp. MY Love propels you forward, encased in my favor.

I am getting rid of the clutter and things that interfere in the relationship. Listen for my tap on the door of your heart. It is time to move forward! I want to expand your ability to hold more of ME in your life."

I see a construction site and heard the words: "Under construction."

"I am building you upon a sure foundation - the foundation of My Love for you. I want you to be settled and established."

Eph 3:18-20 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God's devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]! Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]--

Jude 1:24-25 Now to Him Who is able to keep you without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present [you] unblemished (blameless and faultless) before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation [with unspeakable, ecstatic delight]-- To the one only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory (splendor), majesty, might and dominion, and power and authority, before all time and now and forever (unto all the ages of eternity). Amen (so be it).
