A Covenant of Love

I have loved you with an everlasting love, one that has existed even before the world was made; before the hands of time were ever set into motion, My love for you has always been there, waiting for you too share. My love for you far surpasses even the vastness of eternity.

It was I who knelt down and kissed you, and did awaken you from your sleep. All that I am, and all that I have, I give to you to keep. For today, I vow My covenant love, and on your finger I place my ring, and do seal it with a kiss. An eternal love I promise you, one that shall never fade. For you My Love is My hearts true devotion!

O’ my Lord, with joy unspeakable, I too pledge my love to You; and I do too seal it with a kiss. For without the beauty of Your love, my life would forever be amiss. Yes, my Lord, You are my life, my Love, the One I call faithful and true. Today, it is my heart and love I offer You with all sincerity. For it was Your love that not only awakened me, but has forever set me free. All that I am and all that I have, I vow to You eternally.

Today, the heavenly hosts sing a song of jubilee, as two hearts have now become as one. And what God has joined together, let no man separate. For indeed it is finished, sealed with a kiss, and covered by the blood of the Lamb; witnessed and signed by God’s own mighty right hand, never to be undone.

With a voice of triumph, all of heaven did rejoice; as on a white horse the KING of KINGS and LORD of LORDS, and His beloved bride did prosperously ride. They reigned and they ruled happily together in the light of their glory, in the midst of the holy city, the New Jerusalem, forever and ever and ever…

The Garden of God

One night I had a dream, and I found myself in the most enchanting place. The sweet smelling aroma of the flowers began to captivate my senses with their intoxicating fragrance; feeling lightheaded I sat down upon a rock beside the gentle flowing brook, overwhelmed and enraptured by the awesome beauty that surrounded me, it was as if it was wooing me to surrender all, and to gaze through the eyes of my heart not for just a quick glance but with a mutual expectation to finally see Him, face to face, the Lord of hosts who gave His life to set me free.

My heart began to flutter and then to skip a beat; as I exclaimed in wild wonder, oh yes, yes, to the One who has made my life complete. Tis the lover of my soul, the LORD my God, who has made me whole. Oh how the world below shall never know, let alone behold the beauty that is only found in You. Nor taste and experience the greatest love story ever to be told. Joyfully, I am devoted to the One we call faithful and true. King of kings, and LORD of lords, the One whom nothing can defeat.

O' my beloved, how Your love has ravished me, as it carries me away into the garden of God, a hidden paradise where Your love did pay the ultimate price. My soul began to sing, even as my heart beat in perfect harmony, to the rhythm of His love. O' my beloved bridegroom King, tis Your love that has set me free; Your love that truly amazes me.

If only I could capture the glorious splendor Father God, of the colors of Your love that are reflected in the brilliance of Your Son.Oh, how exquisite is the beauty of these rare and precious stones that You, my King have chosen for Your own great treasure. How can I truly convey the love that overflows from my heart today, or the awesome revelation that I too am one of many with whom You take such pleasure?

Tis my prayer O' LORD my God, that You will always be the apple of my eye, with whom I shall eternally delight myself in. And that You would make us all one with You, as You are one with our Father who art in heaven. For it is in Your holy and most blessed name that I do solemnly pray. Even as my soul rejoices with a song of gratitude on this glorious new eternal day.

Suddenly, I was awakened to finally discover the true desire of my heart. To return back to the beginning, from whence paradise forgotten did in fact first start. To truly come full circle, and to find myself hidden safely in the kingdom of God, resting under the sacred covering of His peaceful love. Eternally bound by a sacred vow, to the One who was sent to us all from God our Father above?

To finally adorn myself as His chosen bride, with the jewels and the garments of heaven divine; and to dance before His majestic splendor, as I too reflect the light that is the Son. Oh, to sing the song of love, to my beloved King; and to bring glory and honor to God our Father from where we all first begun. For I am eternally faithfully Yours, as You are mine.

The Spirit of the LORD came upon me, and I heard the Lord ask, “Do you love Me?”
Immediately I replied, “Yes, Lord, You know I love You!” Why do You ask?

Instantly, I was transported back in time to April of 2005, when the LORD then asked me if I trusted Him. At that time I was not so quick to respond, as I did today. At that time, my mind began to travel through every thought imaginable, as if I knew anything, I knew that I was about to go through something that I really did not think I was ready for. I had just founded the INT”L Church of LIVING STONES as He had commanded me to do; and why are You now asking me if I trust You, I thought?

Again He asked, “Do you trust Me?” Meekly, or rather timidly, I softly whispered, “Yes, Lord, I trust You; but, I am not sure if I am ready to go through what I am about to go through” I replied. So that I do not leave you here wondering what indeed happened, the enemy came in like a flood, and indeed the LORD raised up a standard against him. And what the enemy meant for my harm, God turned it around for my good! Amen.

So, having some wisdom now, I know that when the LORD asks a question, we are going to be tested!

It was almost instantaneous that I began to battle the spirit of fear. The attack or test was now on, and I began to wage war by taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, and loudly declaring, it is written: We love Him because He first loved us. 1John 4:19

My love for the LORD is even now still being tried, to see if it is indeed faithful and true. To be tried is to be put in the refiner’s crucible and found to be without any impurities or dross. It is said that the refiner continues this process until it comes out pure.

It is written: You have tried my heart; You have visited me in the night; You have tried me and have found nothing; I have purposed that my mouth shall not transgress. Psalm 17:3

And again, in 2 Timothy 3:10-13, it is written: But let these also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons, being found blameless. Likewise their wives must be reverent, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things. Let deacons be husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a good standing and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.

If one is truly committed to maintaining an excellent character, one of integrity and honor, then they are diligently striving to live a holy and godly life, which is pleasing to God the Father. We are not here to please man, but God who has sent us. This is what being a disciple of Christ really means, we are daily showing ourselves to be disciplined ones, workers that need not be ashamed. Amen

Are we not 100% committed to picking up our cross every day, and following Him down the paths of righteousness that He is so faithfully leading us on? Do we not live to bring glory and honor to God our Father, in whose glorious image we all have been so fearfully and wonderfully made? And don’t we too have a heart like David’s that is quick to repent of our sin? If your heart responded saying,” yes, yes, yes!” Then indeed you are being perfect even as your Father in heaven; and you are faithful to the One who has called you.

In John 14:15-24 Jesus said: “If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper,*that He may abide with you forever- The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.

Indwelling of the Father and the Son
“A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also. At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, “Lord, how is it that You will manifest Yourself to us, and not to the world?” Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.

In John 15:7-17 it is written: “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. * By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
Love and Joy Perfected
“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. These things I command you, that you love one another.

And now little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him. Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him

Let Truth Abide In You
Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life. These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you. But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.

The Children of God
And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. (1 John 2:24-29)

Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

Sin and the Child of God
Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.

Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.

The Imperative of Love
In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother. For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another, not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother’s righteous.

Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death. Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.

The Outworking of Love
By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?

My little children let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him. For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God. And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight. And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us commandment.

The Spirit of Truth and the Spirit of Error
Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us. (1John 3:1-24)

1 John 4
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

Knowing God Through Love
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

Seeing God Through Love
No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God and God in him.

The Consummation of Love
Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us.

Obedience by Faith
If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can] he love God whom he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.

At beginning of this year the Lord spoke to me saying, “Do not fear the discipline of God but embrace it.

Hebrews 12
The Race of Faith Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

The Discipline of God
For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:

“My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD,

Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;

For whom the LORD loves He chastens,

And scourges every son whom He receives.”

If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

Renew Your Spiritual Vitality
Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.

Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright. For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears.

The Glorious Company
For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and tempest, and the sound of a trumpet and the voice of words, so that those who heard it begged that the word should not be spoken to them anymore. (For they could not endure what was commanded: “And if so much as a beast touches the mountain, it shall be stoned or shot with an arrow.”And so terrifying was the sight that Moses said, “I am exceedingly afraid and trembling.”) But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.

Hear the Heavenly Voice
See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.

Hebrews 13 Concluding Moral Directions
Let brotherly love continue. Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels. Remember the prisoners as if chained with them—those who are mistreated—since you yourselves are in the body also.

Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge. Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said,    “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say:

“The LORD is my helper;

I will not fear.

What can man do to me?”

Concluding Religious Directions
Remember those who rule over you, who have spoken the word of God to you, whose faith follow, considering the outcome of their conduct. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines. For it is good that the heart be established by grace, not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them.

We have an altar from which those who serve the tabernacle have no right to eat. For the bodies of those animals, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned outside the camp. Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered outside the gate. Therefore let us go forth to Him, outside the camp, bearing His reproach. For here we have no continuing city, but we seek the one to come. Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.

In Romans 8:18 Paul proclaims saying: For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

The Lord has led me through some very narrow passageways lately; they were so tight I struggled with my flesh as I pushed my way through. At the time I had no understanding of the things that I had to endure and suffer through, it was only as I came out on the other side that I received the understanding.

This has been a great year, as it has been a time of great testing. When I called for the LORD my God to send His fire, I did not think He answered me, and I began to question why? I began to question everything! It was then that I beheld the fire that had indeed consumed me and yet I was not burned.

In 1 Corinthians 3:13,14 it is written: each one's work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one's work, of what sort it is. If anyone's work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward.

It goes on to reveal that if anyone's work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire. Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 1 Cor 3:14-16

When I called for the LORD my God to send His fire indeed He did, and the fiery test that I was put through was the test of Love! It is easy to love those who love you, but can you respond in love to those who are in fact rejecting you? The LORD has commanded us to love our enemies; we all must pass this test, in spirit and in truth!

I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep (guard) the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling aroma. Ephesians 5:1, 2

With this in mind, I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Let love be without hypocrisy.
Abhor (hate with a perfect hatred) what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging (lazy) in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord: rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; Distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.

Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.

Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; For it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord. Therefore, "if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head." Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:9-21

What is the reward if indeed you faithfully pass this fiery test? I believe that the LORD will command the blessing. And His blessing and glory will rest upon you for all to see!

"He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me. "He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward. And he who receives a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward. Matt 10:40-42

I have had two dreams and in both, a person has come to me asking what is it that my heart desires? Whatever I want they will give it to me. The first time, I replied saying, “I know this is going to sound strange to you, but all I want is more of Jesus!” Immediately I was awakened, and began to praise God, thanking Him for I knew that I passed the test!!!

The second was similar to the first but a different scenario, and again, my reply was, “more of You, Lord, more of You!” Do you know what sheer joy fills your heart and whole being when you know the love that you have with Jesus is real!!!

And you discover the truth that He is the desire of your heart! Amen.

I will tell you, you are going to be tested in just about every way imaginable!

And it will be with those whom you love, those who call you their friend, as well as strangers. One of my last and greatest tests was given in God’s house, yes, the church. In obedience to the Lord’s command I had to be still, when everything within me wanted to stand up and boldly declare that which was written for doctrine and reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. In obedience I had to humble myself, in order to faithfully walk this out in spirit and in truth. For the first time in my life I knew that I was surrounded by the cloud of witnesses, the heavenly hosts, the blessed Trinity; and I could feel the fire of their eyes as they too stood and observed all who were gathered there that day. I knew it was being witnessed personally by the LORD Himself, who is our true and faithful witness. Amen.

This blessed life more abundant is a journey, where daily we mature, as we are taught in the school of the Holy Spirit. And when we successfully pass the lessons we have been faithfully taught and given, then His truth manifests itself in our lives. This is the way we receive wisdom and get understanding that makes our way to be be successful and prosperous. This is how the word comes alive within us, as it manifest as flesh among us. This is walking the paths of righteousness in oneness with the word of God who is leading and guiding you on this straight and narrow path that leads to eternal life.

Kiss the Son

I come to you today in the name of the LORD, for blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD.         I come to speak life and blessings to all who will receive.

At the beginning of this year, the Spirit of the LORD spoke to me, exhorting me to not fear                        but rather embrace God's discipline.

Just as it is written:
For whom the LORD loves He corrects, just as a father the son in whom he delights. Proverbs 3:12

This morning again the Spirit of the LORD speaks to me saying, "Kiss the Son!"

This comes from Psalm 2, and because it is written as a whole message or warning that has been issued and decreed of God, I will deliver the word exactly as it is written.

The Messiah's Triumph and Kingdom

Why do the nations rage and the people plot a vain thing?

The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against His anointed, saying, "Let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us." He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The LORD shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure: "Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion."

"I will declare the decree: The LORD has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter's vessel." Now therefore, be wise, O kings; be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are those who put their trust in Him.

Again the Spirit of the Lord brings back to my remembrance the words that I have received from the LORD previously, going back even to July of 2001 when we were praying and I saw a great tsunami coming from the southwest and hitting the church doors. The LORD spoke asking if I saw the wall of water? I replied, "Yes!" "Do you feel the wind that is driving this water, He asked?” "Yes!" I exclaimed. "Fear not for it is I, it is My Spirit that is driving this wall of water that is about to hit My church and purge everything that is not of Me." "All that man has so foolishly placed his trust in is about to fail him." thus saith the LORD.

For many months I kept hearing the Spirit of the LORD asking:
 “May I have my church back?”
“May I please have My pulpit?"

I do not believe that He is being a gentleman any longer; I believe He is even now beginning to manifest the splendor of His majesty- His Lordship, not only over His church, His bride, but the entire earth which is indeed under His holy feet. The kingdom of God is manifesting through demonstrations of His power and glory, exalting and magnifying the greatness of His name, and His sovereignty.

In April the LORD began to deliver a word to me for the corrupt priests and false prophets

The Lord spoke to me saying: “Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear MY words.” Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel. And the vessel that he made was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.

Then the word of the LORD came to me saying: “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter?” Says the LORD. “Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel!”

“The instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, to pull down, and to destroy it, if that nation against whom I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I thought to bring upon it. And the instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it, if it does evil in My sight so that it does not obey My voice, then will I relent concerning the good with which I said I would benefit it. Now therefore, speak to the men of Judah and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, ‘thus says the LORD: “Behold I am fashioning a disaster and devising a plan against you. Return now everyone from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.”

What grieves my spirit, is that when Jeremiah delivered the word of the LORD in the days of old, they refused to listen. They rejected God’s warning, and said, “That is hopeless! So we will walk according to our own plans, and we will every one obey the dictates of his evil heart.”

Therefore thus says the LORD:
“Ask now among the Gentiles, Who has heard such things?
The virgin of Israel has done a very horrible thing.
Will a man leave the snow water of Lebanon, which comes from the rock of the field?
Will the cold flowing waters be forsaken for strange waters?

“Because My people have forgotten Me, they have burned incense to worthless idols. And they have caused themselves to stumble in their ways, from the ancient paths, to walk in pathways and not on a highway, to make their land desolate and a perpetual hissing; everyone who passes by it will be astonished and shake his head. I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy; I will show them the back and not the face in the day of their calamity.” Jeremiah 18:1-17

God is sovereign over all his people, all the works of His hands. Amen
What He chooses to make of our lives depends primarily on the quality of the clay, meaning our response to His word. We are the clay in His hands and have been created for a purpose; we must be the vessel He has created us to be, if not, we then begin to grieve His Spirit, and hinder Him from using us for the very purpose He created us for.

In verse 4, we see that the clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.

The word marred in the Hebrew is the same word that was used in Jeremiah 13:7 regarding the “Linen Sash” which we learned was rendered to be worthless, as it was ruined. The same is with the marred clay, which was no longer suitable for His original plan. However, as it seemed good to Him, He would make it into something else and use it for a different purpose, instead of what He had formerly intended.

God’s sovereignty reigns supreme over each and every one of us.
If we will not be the divine instruments of His mercy and grace, then we will be pillars of His righteous justice. For as it is written: The LORD has made all for Himself, Yes, even the wicked for the day of doom. Proverbs 16:4

I have known for quite some time that America, this one nation under God; has not only become divided, but have done evil in the sight of God. The slaughtering of innocent babies with not even a twinge of remorse; but God hears the voice of their blood crying out to Him from the ground, just as Abele’s did in Genesis. It is written that the life is in the blood, and the One who created and gives life is well able to hear its cry. Leviticus 17:11

I can still remember vividly the day that the LORD made me witness the horrific torturing of these innocent and precious babies undergoing a partial birth abortion for stem cell research. It was being secretly taped and recorded for those of us to witness, and then to arise and pray, and make a stand for justice. I wanted desperately to storm the gates of Washington D.C. and to personally confront them with their agreement of murder. It was at this moment in my life that I heard what I believe was God saying that this is enough!    How much more evil can one become than this?

Even now as I write this, I am struggling with my own emotions. I am trying not to wail and cry in anguish, as my spirit is overwhelmed within me.

The Spirit of the LORD led me to chapter 4:27

For thus says the LORD: “The whole land shall be desolate; yet I will not make a full end. For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black, because I have spoken. I have purposed and will not relent, Nor will I turn back from it.

The whole city shall flee from the horsemen and bowmen. They shall go into thickets and climb up on rocks. Every city shall be forsaken, and not a man shall dwell in it.

“And when you are plundered, what will you do? Though you clothe yourself with crimson, though you adorn yourself with ornaments of gold, though you enlarge your eyes with paint, in vain you will make yourself fair; your lovers will despise you; they will seek your life.

“For I have heard a voice as of a woman in labor, the anguish as of her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion bewailing herself; she spreads her hands, saying, ‘Woe is me now, for my soul is weary because of murderers!”

My husband asked me recently, “How long are you going to suffer, for the rest of your life?”
“I don’t know!” I exclaimed.

I have been interceding for the “Women of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico” who have been savagely raped, tortured and murdered, for what I believe, is to satisfy the evil lust of wicked men. I do believe they have been raped and murdered for what is called, snuff films. Since 1993 I have been praying and seeking justice for their innocent blood that was shed, to satisfy the lust of sexual immorality of the worse kind; and the lust for money. So far today there have been over 5000 murdered and many more who still have not been found!

 These men are evil and they think that they are untouchable and unstoppable and hidden.

Well, just as Saddam Hussein also thought he was hidden and safe in that hole, I’m here to loudly declare that nothing is hidden from the eyes of God Most High!

Judgment is coming, and Justice will be served!

"Yes, I am a warrior for justice in a world where justice is rare."

I cry out unto Abba, Father saying:
“Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered; Let those who hate Him flee before Him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away; as wax melts before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God; yes, let them rejoice exceedingly. Sing to God, sing praises to His name; extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, and rejoice before Him. A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy habitation.
Psalm 68:1-5

A few days later, the LORD gave to me this Garden stepping stone or plaque; I knew this was His confirmation of the word He was giving me to deliver.

Just as Solomon the preacher declared to us all in Ecclesiastes chapter three, saying that everything has its time, and that there is nothing new under the sun. For that which has already been, and what is to be has already been; and God requires an account of what is past.

The preacher goes on to declare what he observed under the sun:
In the places of judgment, wickedness was there; and in the place of righteousness, iniquity was there.
I said in my heart, "God shall judge the righteous and the wicked, for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work."

We must walk humbly with the LORD our God; and have a heart like David's, which is quick to repent and obey. I believe that when we humble ourselves and sincerely repent, our hearts become softer, and are strengthened by His grace, which enables us to not only forgive others but to demonstrate the love of God as we bestow upon them the same love that we have received from our Father, through Christ Jesus.
I do believe that the wind of the Spirit is moving, even hovering over the earth, and revival is beginning to break out in the earth as well. I believe we are being given a choice today, and how we respond will determine what manifests in our lives.

Will we choose life and good or death and evil?
The blessing or the curse?
And whether or not you Kiss the Son.

What does it mean to truly KISS the SON?

Those who would be wise have much need to be wisely taught; and those who are destined to be wise; indeed are they who receive divine instruction from the word of God, those who are in the school of the Holy Spirit.

You must understand that the LORD our God is not a respecter of persons, as the world chooses to be. These worldly kings and judges that God is instructing to be wise and to serve the LORD with fear and trembling, stands true for you and I too.

To kiss the Son, is to reverently submit to Christ and His kingdom.
It is to embrace Him as the Lord of your life.
We joyfully and most gratefully kiss Him with a heart of faith, for in believing we joyfully receive His gospel message. We seal the covenant agreement with a holy kiss. It is not the kiss of the betrayer as Judas’ was; nor the kiss of a hypocrite who only pretends by putting on a show. No! It is a kiss of love and appreciation for reconciling us back with God our Father. It is the most beautiful and purest form of worship of the LORD there is, if indeed it is in spirit and in truth.

In the Old Testament in 1 Kings 19:18 and Hosea 13:2, it is made known to us that those who worshipped their idols most often kissed them.

So we see that it is with a pure heart and true love that we publicly demonstrate our allegiance to Christ Jesus, the Son, by sealing it with an “I Do” kiss.

Those who trust in the LORD will never be ashamed.
They will be the happiest people on earth and in heaven.
For His is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen

Now to Him who is able to establish you according to the gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known unto all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith and to God, alone wise, be the glory through Jesus Christ forever.

Blessings, Sharlyn

We Must Seven Ourselves to His Covenant

I don't know about anyone else, but the LORD has been faithfully ordering and directing my steps through His word this past year, and preparing me for what I believe is a divine appointment with God our Father.

It all started last September when the Holy Spirit prompted us to set up an altar of stones, which we did. Then the Holy Spirit pressed upon me to deliver a word to my brothers and sisters in November about what it means to be a living epistle, revealed to us in Romans 12:1, 2.

Then in December, He begins to speak about the covenant that He made with David in 2 Samuel 7:1-29. It was at this time when I was fasting and praying before delivering this word, which the Holy Spirit began to make known to me that not only was He leading us into all truth, but He was revealing unto us the mind of God.

We are the house that the LORD of hosts promised David to build for His name. This promise was fulfilled when the Son of David, Christ Jesus our Messiah took His seat on the throne that is established forever. The LORD of hosts has written His name upon this house, and will soon cause His great name to be made known when the Shechinah glory and holy presence of God fills His house.

In Haggai 2:9 it declares saying: "The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former', says the LORD of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,' says the LORD of hosts.

And 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20 says: Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.

I then had a dream; I was living in a log cabin in the mountains and was receiving friends. My friend and her husband arrived, and he quickly left her and I, standing in the Kitchen and living room area, to go out on the front deck.

I told her that my other friends had already arrived and that I was going to take them all on the train on a moonlight ride through the canyon pass. As the five us later that night boarded the train and as it started moving, I looked out the window and noticed that the moon was as bright as the noon day sun. It was like daytime, and everything was so clear and beautiful.

I awakened from the dream, and immediately began to pray for the interpretation.

The Spirit of the LORD led me to Isaiah 30:18-26 and 29:17-24 In spite of the judgments, the LORD desires to bless His people. The day is quickly approaching when the people will hear the teachers, the prophets who have been sent by God; and will not rebel, but will walk humbly as they are being led by divine guidance. O what a sight to behold when idolatry is truly forsaken, and true worship wholeheartedly embraced!

For on this glorious new day that the LORD has made, we will rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for even nature will be in harmony, as God's glory outshines the sun; And the LORD our God commands the blessing .

Praise the LORD for He is good, and His mercy endures forever.

Rejoice, again I say rejoice, for the deaf will hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness. And the humble also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. Therefore thus says the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob:"Jacob shall not now be ashamed,Nor shall his face now grow pale; But when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in his midst,They will hallow My name, And hallow the Holy One of Jacob, And fear the God of Israel. These also who erred in spirit will come to understanding, and those who complained will learn doctrine."

On this day, the church will be powerful and fast, moving just like a train unceasingly through the earth.

January arrived and the Spirit of the LORD again began to speak of covenant, this time it was the Abrahamic covenant, which also was closely tied or better stated, bound to the Davidic covenant, which again comes through the precious Seed, who is our LORD, Christ Jesus.

I began to deliver the word that the Lord had given me, explaining how Abraham is the father of all believers, and how we are all joint heirs with Christ.

Then in February the LORD again began to talk of our responsibility; and the sacrifice that Father God desired. I was also praying at this time for the fire of God to fall and to flow as the river of fire, so that they would be baptized in the river of His holy fire.

I began to speak again on Romans 12:1, 2 only this time using the example of Abraham, and his willingness to offer his only son Isaac, who was the son of promise, the blessing of God that was now to be offered up to God as the burnt sacrifice upon the mountain of the LORD.

What are you trying to say to us, my LORD?                                                                                           Are we too being tried of God?

I sensed God’s displeasure, when He said, this is the sacrifice that was pleasing to Him, this was what He desired! Now my LORD, cause me to understand the perfect will of God our Father. I sensed that something must be wrong, we, “I” must have erred in my understanding of His meaning, His plans and purposes in this hour.

Led by the Holy Spirit, I began diligently studying again, not only the Covenant that God had made with Abraham in Genesis 15, but this great test whereby God tried Abraham’s faith in Genesis 22. It does not reveal to us that Abraham protested to this great command of God. Nor do we see any signs at all, of what would have been the greatest struggle or battle that he must have ever fought with his flesh, in order to be obedient to the will of God. I would have to think, that if God had commanded me, or us, to do the same thing today, many would begin to rebuke this spirit, believing that it must be demonic. Or perhaps that satan was coming as an angel of light, trying to trick and deceive us, into committing murder, even the murder of our own child!

We see that Abraham did not question God, rather he faithfully obeyed.

I began to praise YHWH Yireh, The LORD our provider, who gave to us His only begotten Son, Yeshua - Christ Jesus, the Lamb of God; who is the Lamb that was sacrificed, whose blood was shed for the remission of our sins. Amen

In March I received a visitor, who blessed me with a truck load of meat. I was shocked!

And then the LORD God spoke saying, I have delivered to you the meat, now feed my people the meat.

What is meat?

Meat is divine revelation that comes to us from the throne of God our Father, by the Holy Spirit; and it is food for those who are spiritually mature. It is wisdom for those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. For we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known they would not have crucified the LORD of glory.

But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, and the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so, no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For who has known the mind of the LORD that they may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ as is written in 1 Corinthians 2-16.

It was then that the Holy Spirit revealed that indeed He was making known to me the heart and mind of God our Father. I began by separating myself from the world and anything that would hinder or distract me; and I began a forty day fast. It was through this fast, that I learned what the LORD meant, when He said my food is to do the will of the Father. I also was made aware, that the more I feasted on this sacred bread of life, the more it was being made flesh in my life. I began to hunger for more, as I began insatiably, devouring His word.

It was then that the Spirit of the LORD spoke to me again saying:

But to you who fear My name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; And you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves. You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet, on the day that I do this, says the LORD of hosts. I was led in the Spirit to Malachi 4:2, 3, where this word was written. It is the divine revelation given to us through His prophet, declaring the Great Day of God which will come upon the whole world.

As we study this chapter, we learn that again we have been given divine instruction from the providence of God, concerning the state of recompense and retribution that now lie before us. As the LORD makes known to us that which is about to unfold, concerning the wicked and the saints of God. Even though this prophecy was given to us in the Old Testament it too just like the others pointed to the Messiah, and spoke of the destruction of Jerusalem, and the unbelieving Jews who had rejected the Gospel message of Christ.

It also gloriously reveals the sheer joy and happiness of those who did believe and receive the gospel. It is here that we must pay close attention to what the Spirit is saying to the church in this hour, for we too are directed to have our eyes firmly focused on receiving divine revelation, and a heart that is quick to respond in faithful obedience, even as our father Abraham was when he too was led by the divine providence of God.

As we move in faithful obedience to God’s word that is now ordering our steps, just as it is written, He will continue to make known to us more of His perfect will.

Malachi delivers this prophetic word that makes known all that will unfold as the dawn breaks on this awesome and terrible day of the LORD. It will be a most peculiar day in and of its self, as it will be two fold, a day that only the LORD could make. For to some, it will be the darkest day they will ever face, as the storm clouds of God’s judgment begins to rest upon their heads. Just as in the Old and the New Testament, it is Christ who is a consuming fire to those who have rebelled against Him. And this day will be as a fiery oven, ready for the day of His wrath, and fiery indignation against them.

In Psalm 21:9, it reveals:
Thy hand shall find out all thy enemies, and shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of thy anger.      Indeed it will be a day of great terror and destruction that has not been since the days of old.

And Isaiah in 10:17,18
The prophet makes known unto us that the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame, and it shall consume the glory of his forest and of his fruitful field. For those who have refused to repent and allow Christ to reign and rule as LORD over them is about to discover the error of his ways.

This fire comes to test the works of man, if they be wood, hay or stubble, they will be consumed.    However, if they be gold, silver, and precious stones, they will abide in the fire and be purified by it, as confirmed in 1 Corinthians 3:13-15.

But to my faithful remnant, you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness shall arise, with healing in His wings.The LORD says, that He will be a rejoicing light to those who fear His name, those who faithfully serve Him, and give the glory and honor due unto His name.

Those who truly stand in reverential awe of the splendor of His majesty; which the wicked and unrighteous have mocked and trampled under their feet. How appropriate that these chosen ones whom the LORD has made to be the righteousness of God, in Christ Jesus, would be the ones whom the LORD would use to trample the wicked. They who carry His sacred and holy fire, that same fire will turn them into ashes under the soles of their feet.

For Christ having disarmed principalities and powers made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it. So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or Sabbaths, which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ. Amen Colossians 2:15, 16.

He said that we would grow fat like stall-fed calves, what is the meaning of this, I asked, the LORD?

These are those whom the bright and morning star has arisen in their hearts, from where His sovereignty reigns supreme. These are the precious stones that have grown up wise, and have been restored to wholeness; perfect health and true liberty. It is upon these rare and precious souls, that the Son of Righteousness arises and causes them to increase in their knowledge, and grace, and spiritual strength.         It is by the divine grace of God that they are being made to be even more prudent and wiser, as they grow up into the perfect man. It is these that tread upon the sacred path that is said to be that of the rising sun, for it shines more and more to the perfect day. Proverbs 4:18.

Which is why it is said that their growth is compared to that of stall-fed calves, which is a quick, strong, and powerful growth. You shall grow great in flesh and fatness, which shall be useful for replenishing not only of  God’s altar but the tables of men as well. Causing the saints of God, those indeed whom the Sun of Righteousness has arisen upon, to not only glorify God the Father, but their fellow btrethren as well.           As their hearts begin to overflow with the fullness of the joy of the LORD; the rise up singing songs of praise, to the One who causes them to triumph. For It is He, who has commanded them to go forth, a conquering and to conquer; It is the LORD of hosts who causes them to be victorious over all their enemies. For the wicked have been made to be Christ’s footstool, and now theirs too.

When believers by faith overcome the world, when they have subdued and have taken dominion over their own corrupt natures, with all of its lustful desires and evil passions, it is then that God bruises satan’s head under their feet, and they are said to tread down the wicked one, even as the fiery heat, of the day of the Lord, turns them into ashes under the soles of their anointed feet. As the Lord, by His Spirit, leads them from victory to victory, and glory to glory, let us all shout with a voice of triumph, and shout with a heart of praise to God most high, who has made His righteous justice to not only be made known through their destruction, but has been glorified, as the glory of the LORD begins to cover the earth. Amen.

It is April now, a new season is just springing forth, and yet again, the LORD was talking covenant!

This time however, He led me to Exodus 24, where Israel affirms the covenant with God.
Are we to reaffirm our covenant with God? Hum! I thought that we had already done that?

Anyway, this is the covenant of Law, and we are under the covenant of grace, and are the children of the promise. I could not figure out, what, or why in the world He now led me here.

Again I prayed for grace, and for the Spirit of wisdom to guide and direct me.

The LORD in His mercy, by His Holy Spirit, began to bring forth to my remembrance that everything was a type and shadow of Christ, who remember was hidden in the old, to be revealed in the New.

With that in mind, I began to study Exodus chapter 24, praying for the Holy Spirit to make known unto me, what God was saying to us.

Indeed, we are to reaffirm our covenant and to seal it with the precious blood of the Lamb of God. For God provided His only begotten Son, as the perfect sacrifice. It was the shedding of His own blood that provided atonement for our sins. It was His holy blood that was sprinkled upon the people to seal them, and was used to seal the new covenant of grace as well.

My heart indeed is filled with gratitude, and praises of thanksgiving, again to the One who made a way for us all to enter into God’s presence with boldness. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. Hebrews 6:19, 20.

It was here that the promises of God began jumping off the page, and that if I was obedient to that which He was even now commanding, He would perform His covenant word with me, “US” today!!!

It was then that I noticed something, which I had really never saw before. It was Moses, Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel that went up on the mountain of God, in verse 9-11. And they saw the God of Israel. And there was under His feet as it were a paved work of sapphire stone, and it was like the very heavens in its clarity. But on the nobles of the children of Israel He did not lay His hand. So they saw God, and they ate and drank. Even though they were men, who were not only sinful, but were even quite obnoxious to God, and having every reason to fear the splendor and glory of God’s majestic presence. They did not become undone, as Isaiah had. Nor were they overwhelmed, to the contrary, they were strengthened, so that they were enabled to bear His glory.

When God tells us to come up here, He has something to tell us, how many truly tremble with a holy fear, knowing that are God indeed is an all consuming fire. And like He has revealed, hay and stubble will not stand before Him. It is by the LORD’s loving kindness and tender mercy that we are not all truly consumed.

What truly amazed me, was that they all saw God; and did eat and drink with Him. They fellowshipped and had communion with Him on the Mountain of God!!!

They not only had their lives preserved, but their strength, faith and courage was greatly increased as well. The divine favor that God bestowed upon them, not only blessed them, but filled their hearts to overflowing with the Joy of the Lord, as He, Himself raised them up on high.

It was there that they feasted upon the blessed sacrifice, not only with Him but even before God most high, all in token of their cheerful acceptance of His covenant that they had made with Him, even as they joyfully received the promises and great benefits that were freely bestowed upon them through their divine communion with Him.

It is written, that believers eat and drink with Christ at His table, in Luke 22:30.

Let us all bless the Lord; and offer up praises of thanksgiving, for blessed are those that shall eat bread in the kingdom of our Father, and drink of the new wine there. Amen

It was then that the Lord led me back again to Exodus 24, and made me to see with understanding that this was the birth of the Israelite church.

He also began to speak of the first fruits offering. We were also quickly approaching the day of Pentecost, which is also known as the Feast of weeks that would begin this year on the eve of my birthday.

The day of Pentecost is celebrated by all Christians, as this was the birth of the New Testament Church, the body of Christ. I am led by the Spirit to 1 Corinthians 15:23-28 where it is written:

But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. But each one in his order: Christ the first fruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming. Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all authority and power. For He must reign till He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. “For He has put all things under His feet.” But when He says “all things are put under Him,” then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God be all in all.

Lord, My Lord, is this the hour, as you said this before earlier?

Whenever God says it twice, then we know it will soon come to pass.

In Romans 8:18 Paul proclaims saying: For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now, Not only that, but we also who have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit makes intercession for us with groaning which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; Whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

As the day of Pentecost was now upon us, I was expecting an awesome move of God. God always does something special for my birthday and what better than Joel 2 now coming to life in all of our lives!

What happened was I had no sooner finished praying for the LORD to bless and confirm His church, when I had unexpected visitors again.

The amazing thing was, that the LORD had just had me in Luke 9 & 10, and told me to receive His alms?

Well, I looked up alms in the dictionary and as we know it is charity and also that which is given as compensation for pay. A laborer is due his pay. It was a group of men that filled my freezer with food.
Again I stood in awe at the awesomeness of our God, who indeed supplies for all of our needs. Amen

It is now June, and the LORD began speaking to me about the altar being defiled. As I prayed, He revealed to me that the people’s hearts were divided. They come to His altar and they are all lip service but their hearts are far from Him. This would not be an easy message to deliver. For not only were their hearts divided but they had allowed seducing spirits to come in among them, and these false prophets began preaching their lies on the altar of God. The bible gives us a clear warning that we are to be very careful who we come into agreement with. When we entertain evil spirits, we begin to stand not with God, but rather in opposition to Him. Remember, our God is a jealous God, and He will not share His glory with another! He wants our whole heart or none. Amen

September arrives and we are reminded that this month ushers in the Jewish New Year, and the high holy days.On the 9th Rosh Hashanah begins a glorious New Year, and the feast of trumpets or ingathering, begin to blow from sunrise to sunset. It is a time of celebration, a time to reflect on the faithfulness of our Lord who has delivered us through another year.

Again, faith is stirring in my heart; and I pray, LORD, gather thy people to You even now in this hour. As we move from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur, the day of atonement. Which is from the 9th to the 17th it is a time to reflect, a time to judge ourselves. It is a time to repent, and to remember, all that the LORD, Christ Jesus has done for us.

He was the Lamb of God who came to take the sins of the world away. It was His blood that was shed for the remission and atonement of our sins. It is the hour to turn our hearts wholeheartedly to God our Father.

Now is the Feast of Tabernacles, which began at sundown on the 22nd and for 8 days they slept outside in booths, huts that were made of tree branches as they remembered their small beginnings, and how the LORD God had faithfully led them through the wilderness into the promised land.

It is time for us to worship our God in spirit and in truth.
It is time to sing praises to His name, for His name is great and greatly to be praised.

It is time to thank Him, for how far He has truly brought each and every one of us.
It is time to exalt the LORD who made a way for us when there seemed to be no way.
For sprinkling upon us the precious blood of the Lamb, which has enabled us to enter into the presence of God our Father with boldness.

It is time to thank Him for choosing not only to tabernacle with us, but to abide mightily in us, this house that He created for His glory.

Yes, my brothers and sisters, now is the hour to praise the LORD our God; and to ask Him to write His name on this house, and bless it with the fullness of His shechinah glory and most holy presence.

It is time, says the Lord, that we seven ourselves to the Covenant of Abraham, and seven ourselves one to another. For the LORD is about to command the blessing, and desires to perform His covenant word with His beloved children.

To seven ones-self means to bind completely.

In Genesis 26:3 It is written:
“Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. When Abraham made a covenant with Abimelech, he gave him 7 lambs which were a witness to the agreement they entered into at Beersheba, which is translated to mean, the “well of the Seven.”

It is now that I hear the Spirit prompting me to sing to my well!

“Yes, I exclaimed!”

In Numbers 21:16, 17 the LORD told Moses to “gather the people together, and I will give them water.” Then Israel sang this song:

“Spring up, O well! All of you sing to it.

It is time for the children of light to arise, and ascend the hill of the Lord. For Just as Christ was transfigured on the mountain of God, so too will we be transfigured as well.

Like I stated earlier, when I described my vision on the mountain, and the train, and the moon, the (church) that was shining as bright as the sun. When we have bound ourselves completely to Christ Jesus, who is the word made flesh, then we will shine as bright as the noon day sun (Son), because the sun (Son) has become sevenfold. Isaiah 30:26.And the church will be glorious, quick and powerful, as she moves unceasingly, just like a train across the earth. Amen

Blessed be the LORD of hosts, bless His holy name. For to Him be all the glory. For His is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever.

In the name of the LORD, Christ Jesus
"I bless you."

A Vision or a Dream, You Decide?

One night I received a vision, which scared me half to death. There was militia in the streets, and terror that made you hold your breath. I looked up to see a dragon that held the eagle in its mouth. My soul began to tremble with understanding, as I was forced to witness the devastation of the south.

What is truly happening to this world that I see, please tell me LORD, where did we go wrong? What is now becoming of home of the brave, and land of the free, this one nation under God in whom we have placed our trust? How are we to survive in this world where we do not belong? Looking back now through the eyes of my hearts understanding, I see violence has always been there, the same is true with evil, greed and lust.

My soul cries out in repentance, and mourning, even as the angels begin to sing a sad, sad song above. It is in this moment that I fall to my knees and begin to reverently pray, interceding for this world, and the fear of judgment day. Pleading to God our Father, in holy desperation for His divine mercy, His grace, and unfailing love.

This could be a prophecy, a vision sent to us from God; or perhaps it is just a dream, a nightmare triggered subconsciously, based out of fear. However, today I gaze upon this world through much different eyes, as the Spirit of God interprets for me the truth, I hold so dear.

My heart and mind have been forever changed by the awakening of my soul; I can no longer hide behind eyes that were once blind. Tell me, can you look upon the world outside through godly eyes, or are we truly destined to behold the slaughter of all mankind? Like I said before, this could be a vision, or perhaps it is just a dream, the choice my friend is for you to decide. Just look deep within your soul where the truth is hidden, waiting, for you to find.

I received this in April 1994. I have been interceding for America for 16 years.

I have had recent visions even this last April where the Spirit of the LORD led me to Jeremiah, and again I was forced to witness the great slaughter. The visions that I see are horrific, and if it were not for the LORD taking me to Daniel and showing me how he too felt, or David who wrote the Psalms not only to the glory of the LORD our God but to encourage us, and to show us how to pray rightly in faith believing, believing that we will see the salvation of God. We will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living!

I feel so truly alone most of the time. As there are not a lot of people around me that are receiving these kinds of visions, let alone struggling with exactly how we are to prepare a people for what indeed is coming on the earth. For you see, God's desire is that none should perish but that all would come to the saving knowledge and understanding of Christ Jesus! Amen.

Who is being led like a lamb to the slaughter today, quietly?

I believe this is the love that will be demonstrated through those who are indeed willing to lay their life down for their friend. Those who are arising and going out to meet the King and declaring no, my Lord, be it unto me! Just as Abigail did with King David, when her husband offended the king. Or can we humble ourselves, because we do understand exactly what Christ did for us, and in spirit and in truth, stoop down to wash some mess off their feet.

If a husband is to thank the LORD for his wife and to present her back to the Lord spotless and blameless, without blemish or wrinkle, then why do we not do this for one another, is this not what Christ, Himself did for all of us who believe?

I want to see the beautiful image of the Lord, when I gaze into your eyes. I want to feel the power of His love flowing freely through you, warming my heart and soul. I want the word of God in me to not be tolerated, but joyfully celebrated! I want His body to be made whole!

O' Holy Spirit may I decrease, so that He can increase? May it no longer be I that is seen but Christ living and reigning mightily in me? Renew a right spirit in me, a spirit that seeks to do God's will.

Abba, Father, I come before Your throne of grace, sprinkled with the precious blood of the Lamb of God, Christ Jesus, Your only begotten Son. I thank you Father for Your word that is faithful and true; Your word that will not return back to You null and void but shall accomplish that which You sent it to do. In the name that is above all names, the name of Christ Jesus of Nazareth, I pray for the Holy Spirit to descend upon us, and to overshadow us with the power of the highest. LORD Jesus, breathe upon us all, those who are gathered here together today, and cause us to be one with each other, even as You are with the Father; even as You prayed for us to be. And LORD, by thy Spirit that abides in us make us one with Thee, one with the blessed Trinity, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, the way we were created to be.

For thine is the Kingdom the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

The Symbol of the Linen Sash

The Linen sash was the first prophetic act that Jeremiah used to demonstrate God's covenant word to His chosen people. Linen represents the priestly garments as Ezekiel makes known unto us in chapter 44:17; it is the proper attire for a holy people who were raised up to be a priestly kingdom, as the LORD declared in Exodus 19:6.

The linen sash bore witness to the intimate relationship that they freely enjoyed through His covenant. However, as we read that which has been written, may we guard our hearts against the sin of pride, which rendered their sash worthless, even as the LORD declared, profitable for nothing. Jeremiah 13:1-11

The Old has passed away behold the New!

Even in the New Covenant we see that His Will, plans, and purposes have not changed!

For we are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness* into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims abstain from freshly lusts which war against the soul, having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation. 1 Peter 2:9-12

Peter exhorts us to live a godly life, regardless of whatever circumstances we may find ourselves in. We must respond accordingly to that which is pleasing, and indeed does glorify God our Father, in whose image we have been fearfully and wonderfully made. Our life, and testimony, must bear witness to the blessed hope of the gospel message of salvation found in Christ Jesus.

In the day of visitation may we be found glorifying God, in Spirit and in truth; and not wearing a sash drenched in pride? Amen.
