My True Identity

Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. Psalm 139:16

I’d like to invite you into a conversation, I have had with the Lord, about my identity, because I have come to realize how we each can actually live an entire life, but yet, never come, to meet the real us. So, in this piece called “My True Identity” I am asking the Father, for just that.

Lord, who was I really, before the foundations of this world?

What was Your original predestined thought about my life?

I want to know.

I do NOT want to be here on earth operating in a false identity,

But I want my true name, my true fingerprint, my true identity.

Thus, who was I really?

Yes, before Adam and Eve partook of the fruit from the tree

Before sin and this world contaminated me?

Who was I, before it all started to mold and fashion me

Into what it wanted me to be,

Lord, I am asking, who was I?

Who am I?

I NEED my true authentic ID

For I do NOT want to operate in the likeness, of these, amongst whom I see

Taking on the form, and image of a little bit of everything and everybody

No! But instead, I want to operate from that place of You,

From originality, and NOT from allowing people to persuade and indoctrinate me,

No! Father, I want my uniqueness, my creativity, my authenticity to shine through.

I want, my confidence and joy You have for me.

You know, that joy Lord, that You gave,

The joy which, since the world did not give, the world cannot take (see John 14:27).

I want that Lord,

I want to walk in the freedom of being who You, alone predestined me to be.

Therefore, as a result of this, I will continue to fight for my identity,

I will continue, to bring myself into Your presence and give You total permission to TRANSORM me.

I will continue, to allow You to wash and cleanse me, all the way into eternity

That I may know, that I am living out Your forethought about me, so low self-esteem, you have to go, pain, hurt and rejection, you have to go, I say NO, and receive my Heavenly Identity.

I’m grateful Heavenly Father, that as a result, of me, having accepted Your Son,

Jesus, The Messiah, as my Lord and Savior, I have already begun to emerge, as You are giving me Your ID for me. Amen.

WORDS

Words come alive
Come alive words
Come alive and awaken
Words be life.
The study of words, is remarkable,
There is so much color,
Yes, color in words.
When you look further, than just the dictionary,

And you look,

Into a thesaurus, there, you can see, the vibrancy of the words.
You can hear the sounds, in the word, you can hear the colors
You can see, the colors, in the word.
For there, is truly, an awakening, in words, as you go deeper,

Into that word, than just the surface.
I thank the Father, for Him, reviving and awakening,
the desire, of even, His word, in me.
For there was once a time, believe it or not, when I hated words!
I hated to read
I hated to study
I hated it all, because, in truth, I hated life, and saw no point to it, 

But boy, oh boy, do I sure, thank the Father, that He sent The Word,

Which is, the Messiah, who is The Living Word, and I thank the Father, that in Himself, He gave me life, and also, a desire, to know His Word and in reading His word,

Having my eyes then opened,

I saw, so much vibrancy.

For as, I hungered and thirsted for the Lord’s word,

It then,

lead me, to a greater desire, of learning, more about words
Thus, thank You Father, for Your Word
That Your Word, it IS, established forever, and in Your Word,

there is LIFE
Hallelujah!!!

John 6:63reads:

It is the spirit that gives life the words that I speak to you they are spirit and life the flesh profits nothing.

Today (Doing What the Lord has Called us to do TODAY)

Today, today, today
In Jesus name!
It is so!

What is this force, that tries to keep telling me, one day, one day, one day and every day, I just sit, and watch another day, go by?
No! I decree and declare, TODAY!
I decree, it will be and I will do, TODAY, in the name of Jesus!
What am I waiting for?
The polished and perfected production?
I have to ask, because, some of the greatest productions, are found,

in the organic, the authenticity,
In other words, by just using, what we have, despite, what we don’t.
And so, I decree, TODAY!
Truth is, for I have waited,
I have prayed,
I have forsaken, many things, in order, to keep what’s been entrusted unto me, set apart.
Hallelujah!
In fact, I’ve even, laid it down, at the altar, time and time and time again

Just to make certain, that with, whatever, it is, I am NOT worshiping it.
And so, TODAY
It IS my due season,
Today, there ARE, intended assignments, divinely, set up, by the Father, in order, to receive, the producing of the oil, that HAS come forth, from my times of crushing.
And so, I thank You, Father,
For even, what this word, right now, is producing in me, by just simply, me declaring this word, into the atmosphere and what it has already done in me, hallelujah!
That I may see, produce from here on out, in my TODAY, as if, I will not have, another day.
Amen.


Inspiration: I wrote this, when I was actually sick, and had just been looking over many spoken word writings, that the Father, had given me. And in seeing them, I then, inspired to write this. So, here, I was declaring how, I would, NOW, put in the effort, in order, to birth the visions, being, the set-apart things that, the Father, has ordained, to be delivered, by my hand, NOW, despite not having, the so-called polished look and resources of… I was just putting things in perspective yet again, that the Heavenly Father, is ALL I need, for He is, more than enough, and if He’s given, the green light to go, than, we should go, full speed ahead.

He Himself

20191210_122312

For He Himself

For He Himself is our peace, is our shalom

For He Himself is our joy, our victory

For He Himself is our strength

For He Himself is our provision, our success, establishment, favor, qualifier

Yes, for He Himself, in the fullness of who He is, IS The ALL sufficient One,

Meaning, every single thing that we have need of, He Himself is.

For He Himself is our wealth, our prosperity, portion, inheritance and estate.

For He Himself is our fortitude, refuge, shelter, warrior

Shepherd, provider, deliverer, redeemer, ransom, reconciliation

Hallelujah!

For He Himself, is even, our strength in exchange for our weakness.

For He Himself, is our life, and when needed, guess what, He IS our resurrection.

And when we really receive this revelation, not just by head knowledge, but by spiritual revelation, it is then, that we can live, in the abundant life that Jesus, said He gave in John 10:10, as well as, receive the authoritative posture, that the Almighty, would have for us to stand in and be able to receive, even the more.

Yes, receive, even the more, I repeat.

John 10:9 says, He is the gate and whoever enters by Him is saved and will go in and out and find pasture.

I can tell you from experience, that there’s something, without question, that supernaturally happens, when we simply, decree and declare, the truth, of who He is, over everything, with the words of “He Himself.” For when we do, we then will see, the life that it produces.

Proverbs 18:20-21 reads: A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; from the produce of his lips he shall be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.


Thus, the prayer for me (us) is, Father, help us, to take our eyes off of me, and my (our) limitations, emotions, feelings, warfare and this and that, and instead, please DO help me (us) to keep my (our) eyes fixed on You, and who You are.

I John 2:2 reads: And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.

A Prophetic Response for What We See

our response

Prophetically, I tell you, we are in a time, where many Idols, are being torn down and much idolatry, HAS been exposed, yet, though this is truth, there as well, HAS been extreme mercy from the Lord. In this exposing of idols, we ALL have had to come face-to-face, with these idols and our sin. Yet, divinely, by the Lord’s hand, He is granting us access, to see and grace to repent. Though yes, in this process, there IS pain, if we divinely, enter into the Heavenly Father’s continued time of perfecting, then after that, there WILL be, a holy beauty upon us, a beauty, that will display the Lord’s glory. Yes, we then, will have produce, with remaining fruit, produced in us, by the Messiah. For Indeed, what we’re witnessing, is the pruning, and this pruning I’m referencing, can be found in great detail, in John chapter 15.

As of recent, we as a world, have been able to see the reality, of just how, in the BLINK of an eye, life can come to a halt, business-as-usual can cease, and how all of us, can be put in a position, to desperately, cry out for help. Knowing, ONLY the Almighty Father, can provide this divine help, which is far greater, than what man’s own strength could ever give.

Right now, the Lord is highlighting to us, His children, 1 Peter 4:17 which reads: For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? Another truth, the Lord is highlighting, is that He is coming back for a bride without spot or blemish, and this is what He is producing in us (see Ephesians 5:27). So, it’s not by coincidence, that during COVID-19, came the heightened racial tension. In actuality, there WILL continue, to be an escalation of many different things, and there’s a vast amount of prophetic scriptures, including the whole book of Revelation, that reveals this.

In fact, in Matthew chapter 24, we’ve already been told, that these are just the beginning of sorrows (see Matthew 24:8). Thus, Matthew chapter 24, is a chapter, I’d highly recommend for you to read and memorize, that you can understand the times we’re in, receive divine instruction and encouragement from the Lord. This chapter, not only, explains the times we’re in, but also, the things we’ll continue to see, as well as, what our response should be.

My prayer, for us all, is that, we’d NOT react, in the exact way, the world is reacting by looking, hearing, and speaking no different, than the mass majority but, that we’d instead, respond to the things taking place, in a way, where ultimately, the Lord, is glorified from having His heart response for us and others. Amen.

True Resurrection

20200412_093329

For this Resurrection service, I am most grateful for the Father’s IMMENSE grace and mercy toward the body of Christ, to be able to have a TRUE Resurrection, to be able, to be called OUT by the Messiah, in and by again, His grace and mercy, to ARISE from the dead, to take the death clothes off, to come from the tomb, to come from the places that have NOT produced, but have only produced entertainment and feel good stuff. Stuff of NO eternal value.

I as well, am grateful for there to be a TRUE Resurrection, for there to be a true reset, to be a true time of introspection, a true time to decide, if the church will play or if, it will surrender to the Almighty and take the opportunity to come OUT of the church industry and into the Kingdom Ministry.

For out of the Heavely Father’s grace and mercy, He is declaring and blowing, His shofar saying unto all, ” Choose this day whom you will serve, choose life or death, I have presented them both before you, blessings or curses.” (See Deut. 30:19)

And so, I am most grateful for this Resurrection time, grateful that many churches that were on the broad path Matthew 7:13-14 have been shut down and there will be NO entertainment today on a mass scale. I am grateful, for the true Apostles, Prophets, Preachers, Teachers, Evangelist Etc. along with all other gifts from Christ, to be able to come forth, for such a time as this.

I too, am grateful for the PRUNING and I’m even grateful, for the very ones too, who have rejected Christ, from their behavior, but yet, in this time, have REPENTED and will EMERGE with such a fire from them, like the Apostle Peter, who is just one example. Ones that will be able to endure all the way to the end and in fact, WILL impact many for the glory of God.

Prophetically, I tell you, get ready to truly, see transformed individuals.

Lord, help us all, to NOT hold them in their past, but pray them into their future while knowing Philippians 1:6 is so!

Thank You Father, for this shake up, that prayerfully, sinners, like I once was, would be saved, and those on broad path, within the church will repent and run to join the narrow path which DOES cost, and for those already on the narrow path, that we’d all awake to holiness, righteousness, love, and purpose, even the more, in Jesus name, I pray. Amen.

May you LORD, get ALL the glory on this Resurrection Day and may, we ALL be resurrected in a way that brings you ALL the glory.

Scriptures to Reference:
John 15:2
John 10:10
John 11
Colossians 3:2

The Father’s Prophetic Timeline

3DTextStudio

Though yes, things will be restored after all of this is over, I tell you now, prophetically, they will NEVER ever, be the same. We are in a totally different day, with a new way of doing things.

In times to come, you will SEE what I mean. Yet, through it all, we can KNOW that we ARE on the PROPHETIC TIME LINE of the Lord, come what may, and none that has happened, is happening, and will happen, will EVER be a shock to the Almighty.

Gratefully, for those of us, who are believers, and in times to come, for those who WILL receive the blood shed on their behalf through Christ Jesus, there will ALWAYS be hope, why? Because HE IS a forever, LIVING HOPE. And then, even then, for those who choose not to receive Christ, He still intercedes, loves, and shows mercy inviting them to come while there is still, yet time.

Not to mention, as we continue to see things escalate, yes, in many different ways, we can BE at peace, because He IS our refugee, fortress, strong tower, Mighty deliverer, Great Shepherd (Psalm 23), Lord of Host being, Lord of Heaven’s army.

Therefore, what should our position be? One of preparedness to be presented without spot or blemish such that, we can stand, endure to the end and NOT be offended. And to also, have a position of prayer, resembling that in which, we see today, where most, being those on the narrow path within the Church, are crying out in prayer. I mean, after all, the Lord did say, how, His house would be called, a house of prayer (See Luke 19:46).

I know, personally, I once, not long ago, wondered and cried out unto the Lord, asking, what did that really mean and look like, to be a house of prayer. And gratefully, while I am still, in the land of the living, I can honestly say, because of this particular outbreak of virus, which I rebuke right NOW, in Jesus name, that now, I know, what He means even the more.

For, now I see, once again, just like after 911, how many different denominations, and those with different ethnic back grounds, young and old are crying out, in UNITY, in prayer.

May the Blessed Lord, hear from Heaven and continue to deliver us all, for His Glory! In fact, we thank You Lord now, that You have, are, and will do so. And Psalm 91 is just one chapter out of many that proves this keeping power of Him.

You Lord, have a track record, FLAWLESS, likend unto NONE. Help, us to repent, and see evil for what it is, through Your eyes despite, man calling it right.

Mark 13:7‭-‬8

But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows.

What In the World is HAPPENING?

what-in-world-is-happening

Looking at the times we are in today, I found this on another site where I posted this in 2017 and as I revisited it today 3 /20 /20 just two years later, I felt, I needed to indeed share this post here. God Bless!

 

With all of this chaos, we here, in the states are beginning to see

The uproar, the tension, the division between this and that

The economic turmoil, the increase of lawlessness throughout the land

Many are sitting around completely shocked,

Questioning, what in the world is happening?

So, I state…

The world is happening,

The world is doing, as the world does

You see plainly, without Christ, the Chief Cornerstone and the rejecting of Him,

There IS Hell on Earth

Yet, you see, when you are in Christ

And are disciplining yourself, to submit to His authority and study His word,

Being, His book of history, present, and future

Being the Bible, which includes the book of Revelation, and the prophecies

The Bible in its entirety

Then you’re NOT in the dark, but in the light

You ARE kept by His Shalom (His all-encompassing peace see John 14:27)

While knowing, all this that we see, in the now and will continue to see,

IS the foretold word, coming to pass

Though yes, we each, are affected in different ways, as a result, to living in this world

Still, we are not to be freaking out, as if shocked or perplexed to the unraveling ( the shaking Hebrews 12:24-29)

Because, there also is a simultaneous work of ESTABLISHMENT

Being executed by the Heavenly Father

So instead, we should be on our post, as watchman praying,

Peace, comfort, salvation, repentance, and seeing where the Father

Would have for us to be, as His hands and feet

To promote reconciliation and not division

To promote love and not hate

To promote healing and not harm

To declare His warning: of the signs of the time

So in this, we as the body, have to really take a deep and introspective look

And ask ourselves, are we looking, acting and responding just like

those who are in this world?

Are we intentionally guarding our emotions from the world’s report such that,

We can move synchronized to the Father’s command vs. man?

Because though, the world is happening, again, at the same time, God is happening,

Yes, His foretold word is unfolding

And what we’re witnessing, is that, in which,

We were already told MUST happen before His establishment of… located in His word.

So I exhort you, encourage you, to prepare yourself now,

Because all that you see, for a time,

Shall all continue, to escalate at an unprecedented rate

Yet do know, if you’re in Christ, and He is in you

And you’re constantly, aiming to yield, to His Set Apart Spirit

Then in Him,

You SHALL see the glory of the Lord despite

And you shall see your part, your purpose to fulfill during these times

Such that, you are used to be a part of the solution opposed to the problem.

By being immersed in the Messiah, you will be able to know how to navigate

And will be kept with a sound mind, that He has already given to you

Opposed, to being frazzled to no end, paralyzed, stuck, fear stricken,

Involved in projects that are only exerting your energy, time, and effort,

Good projects yes, but not meant to be accomplished with your hand, your fingerprint.

So let’s all DO, tune in to hear, what the Lord has already said, is saying, and will say,

While asking ourselves, if we are indeed, positioned to hear the Lord.

Know this, the Father, the Almighty, is NOT coming like a thief in the night

To the children of light, let’s correct that misinterpretation now

For indeed, you see, He is only coming as a thief,

To the children of darkness (see 1 Thessalonians 5:4)

So, if you’re in the light, it’ll be apparent, as to what is going on,

For you will see, the evident signs of the time. (Matthew 24)

So as the world, scrambles around here, like they are going out of their minds

You, on the other hand, can hold on to His peace

That peace, He said, He gave to us

A peace, the world did NOT give

But again, His peace that He said He already gave (see John 14:27)

See in truth, the Messiah has and does unveil to His disciples, taught ones,

Being, His people, who’ve come into His secret place to love on Him, and inquire,

The remnant, the ability to know and NOT be kept in the dark.

Therefore, FRET not, because in reality, we should be rejoicing,

Because, we have been chosen, to help usher in, a greater revealing of His Kingdom.

Thus, DEMAND your soul, to be ye still and set your gaze

Upon that, which is eternal vs. that, which is only temporal (see Colossians 3:1-4)

3/20/20 Addition

May we all do spend hours daily in prayer, for this entire world in compassion, repenting for ourselves, nation, and world as well as, praying for those who are suffering right now and being affected by this virus, in ways, that is just heartbreaking to hear. May we all avail ourselves, on their behalf, in a way, on our knees that produces results, pleading for peace, healing, salvation, help, for those, who may not, yet, have come to taste and know How awesome the Lord Almighty is, by coming to Him, through His Son Jesus (John 3:16)

Warfare is Confirmation of the Breakthrough

warfare confirmation

Many a times, when we experience warfare sometimes, all we can do is just say, “Oh my Lord!” However, when were able to still ourselves, before the Father, to ground ourselves in Him, coming with a heart posture of, help Lord! I thank the Father, that He IS our assistance and IS faithful to indeed rescue, deliver and help.

I thank the Father, that He too, reminds us of His word, which says in: James 1:2-4 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces [a]patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

And Romans 8:28 which reads: And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

 Yes, He will work it together for our good, which is ultimately, His good.

I too, am grateful to know, how He IS our defender and in knowing this, we begin to see, and to know, even from just looking at the Word, that the warfare is confirmation of the breakthrough, that ALREADY is so!!!

Whether, that be breakthrough, be that which, has already happened (past tense) and or, is soon to manifest in the natural. And so, with the warfare, we CAN praise the Father!!! Since, it’s again confirmation, and since, despite what the warfare looks and feels like, there IS a PRODUCING. Hallelujah! There is a producing, that comes NOW, as a direct result from…

This is the reason why, after experiencing, any kind of breakthrough in the spirit realm, we DO have to be mindful, that the enemy DOES look for the opportune times to attack us, which is why we have to cover ourselves and situations in prayer, before and after, and then, still be stayed in a place, of much spiritual alertness.

 Just a few biblical examples for this word, “Warfare is Confirmation” is found in Matthew 9:1-13 please read, and here you will see, as Jesus performed these miracles (demonstrated the glory) immediately, warfare arose.

Another example is found in Luke 10:38-42 when while Mary, was sitting at the feet of Jesus receiving Heavenly, divine impartations warfare, did indeed, arise with Martha desiring she get up to help. Yet, The Defender defended.

Being that you have read this post, you now, even the more, will be able to see the warfare that arose at different times in the Word of God yet, at the same time, you also, will be able to see, His strong RIGHT hand of assistance and deliverance.

Broken

20191228_213050

We are ALL broken people
Born into a broken world
We ALL, have hurtful stories to share about our lives,
every-single-one-of-us.
For we are ALL broken,
In need of continual repair
Broken, broken, broken
With scars so deep,
many of us, are amazed, to see every day it is, that we see.
Yet, in this brokenness,
There IS, The Hope Giver,
The Hope liver, The Hope repairer
And so, as we choose, to give Him our hurt, we realize, whether now or later, that truly, He Himself, can relate
To the worst and darkest of pain, and not just relate, but bore the stripes
the torment, deadly persecution
in His complete innocence
That there’d indeed, be an exchange, that in Him,
There’d come glory from our story
That in Him, we’d have testimonies (plural)
That despite, the trauma,
Despite, the deep scars,
Despite, the memories,
that ultimately,
When people, and even ourselves
look at us, we’d see,
the blood of Christ
flowing forth from our wounds.
That light would shine forth
out of our cracks and brokenness.
That ultimately, we and others would witness, the power of the torture, excruciating, unimaginable pain and suffering that our Messiah endured on our behalf, that that brokenness, would be ye restored
And we’d be,Walking restoration in demonstration
Amazed by His power.

It’s like, I see a mosaic, broken pieces put back together, though this time, fused with an eternal glue that seals.

May our brokenness, testify Father, of Your power, and redemption in our lives. Thank You, for helping us, to DO avail ourselves, to this supernatural work of You, while knowing, that You are creating a beautiful masterpiece, even with our broken pieces. Amen.

Inspiration: Written in my heart for decades, but finally written in ink, after having watched the movie “I Can Only Imagine” after like, the third time or so, and seeing the pain that resurfaced as my husband and I, watched it. Yet, my cry out, was to continue to allow the Father, to have His way, in the healing process and KNOW, that it WAS indeed, happening, even at that very moment, despite all of the gamut of emotions I felt. And the proof, was even in by just being able to witness this spoken word flow forth.

Lord, Render Me Immovable

Render Me Immovable 

Render me immovable

Stop me in my tracks

Let the weight of Your glory, the kawbod, kavod (Hebrew words for glory)

Stop me, cause me to be immobile

Where the spirit of You, in me,

Causes my heart to bow

From literally, being overwhelmed with worship and praise unto You,

Left in a state, of complete awe of You and Your goodness

Yes, render me immovable

Where You and I, have that divine 1 on 1 undeniable encounter

Where You and Your presence, literally just over takes me

and I allow You, to be You

Doing whatever and ALL You desire to do,

Where You heal me, love on me, fill me, reveal You, and reveal the You, in me,

Where I even, authentically, allow You to love and show me my destiny,

Like You did, with Moses, at the burning bush

Where there You are, the great I Am,

Yes, even in just my ordinary day,

When I may not be, so called, in that particular physical spiritual place per se,

But yet again,

In my normal day to day, in my car, kitchen, bathroom, place of assignment

known by others, as a job,

Yet, THERE YOU ARE, where Heaven and earth kiss, and I too, can testify

That the Lord is here, here in this place just like Jacob, and I too, didn’t even know it, my Lord… (below see Genesis 28:16 nkjv)

Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.”

Inspiration: I wrote this on an ordinary day, while cleaning my home and listening to worship music, and as I did, I miraculously, was left immovable, to the point where, I was in complete awe and knew without question, I had had an encounter with the Almighty. Where something divine took place, and that, not only, was I feeling a freedom, release, and impartation at that moment, but that I too, would see, even the more, manifested from that divine moment, as time unfolded.

Looking back recently, at this written record of that time, I can indeed, testify now, that something huge in my life, did in fact, happen. For not long after, that divine moment, I witnessed the Lord do a long awaited miracle in my life. For I had been waiting on the Lord, to release and usher me into something, He told me would do years prior, and glory to God, my eyes, beheld His mighty strong hand perform just that. Today, I am forever grateful and grateful that I stopped, in that moment, from cleaning to instead, just bask, receive and worship, though at the time, of course, I did not know the fullness of what was happening. Now though, I know, I looked completely foolish to my family, as I just wept and worshiped, yet, I am grateful, the Father, helped me not quench the move of the Holy Spirit, that I could experience the extraordinary, happen in my ordinary day.

Even now, as I write about this here, I too, am reminded, how I had another encounter of such, being, while I was at my assignment (job as known by others) where the Lord, divinely revealed to me, while in my ordinary day, who my husband was to be, by name, and not only, was I completely shocked, but where my co-workers, who surrounded me, who were not Christians, could tell, I had had an encounter, where they said, “Did you see a ghost or something,”and others said, “You have a glow,” and others said, “You are pale is everything ok?” It was truly, a moment where I was left immoveable, and as you know, having been married soon  to be 17 years, it was a life changing encounter.

Prayer:

Thank You Father, for these divine moments, of Your glory, in our lives. Help us Lord, to DO prepare ourselves in You, even the more, to have these moments and that, when they come, we can know, something supernatural, is indeed happening. Amen.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-19 Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit.

Do you as well, have a like experience, where you too, where rendered immoveable. If so, please DO share here, to testify of the Father’s awesomness in your life.

No Period

Thank you, Father, that because we’ve purposed in our heart to love You with all of our heart, soul, and strength (see Deuteronomy 6:5) thank You, that there will always be hope in You, hallelujah!

And that things will NEVER be just what it is, just what I see, just what I hear, just what I’m experiencing, because with You, hallelujah, there is and will forever be hope for You, can trump ALL of everything that I experience in the natural and change it into a supernatural experience. Which means, yes, it WILL totally go against the natural, because of who You are.

So thank You, Heavenly Father, that when I see things, I am NOT to just stay there with what I see and hear, for its only a cause for me to intercede in faith and Your word with, bringing it to You, that I can then watch Your strong right hand in operation, see Your Mighty power and continue to see You show me Your salvation as it says, in Psalm 91:16.

Yes, I am to simply see and then cast ALL my cares upon You, knowing NOT doubting that You DO care for me and You DO respond (see 1 Peter 5:7). I too, thank You, that Your word tells me, we shall call upon You and You will answer in Psalm 91:15, You will be with us in trouble, You will deliver us and honor us.

Therefore, thank You, that concerning the things we experience here in this earth realm, there is NO period, it is not, “It is what it is” as said in the world’s vocabulary, but instead, it is, that I will bring what I see to the Heavenly Father, while watching Him do what only He alone can do.

Inspiration: This was written to encourage myself with something I was experiencing and weighing heavy upon my heart because of what I saw, but as I read the word of God and allowed it to wash over me, Psalm 91 encouraged me to remember that NO, things are not, it is what it is, because He is, Emmanuel God with us.

The Hope of Glory

bible images

For I desire to continue to know the Lord, as He is,

Being Elohim
The God of ALL creation

Who creates and brings forth, out of nothing,
Leaving His eternal signature stamp.

Yes, going right back to Genesis 1:1,

In the beginning God created the heavens and earth.

You see, I want the Father, to continually transform me, radically

This best describes my inner yearn
To the point where, not only, do I know, it’s the Lord

But where, the onlookers too, can be saved,

Simply, by their observation of the You, in me.

For I want to be filled with the fullness of God

Not just a dab here and there

To continue to see the Lord, do the exceedingly and abundantly,

Above all, that I could possibly ask and or think

According to His power which works in me, to see the reality of Ephesians 3:20.
I also, want to see myself living out 2nd Corinthians 5:17,

And be a NEW creation

Not just quoting it from memory, but living out the evidence of it

With His eternal destiny for me.

 

Yes, I want to know, the mystery of You Lord, living inside of me

As well as, without question, be everything you’ve created me to be while here on this earth,

I do NOT want to die, in the excuse of, I should’ve, could’ve, and would’ve

No! But instead, I want it said, that I lived and did it.

Praise ye the Lord.

 

I want to walk out, a hundred percent, of my Christ identity

Fearless, because I know, Jesus suffered for me and you,to be free in Him.

If you too, desire to see the fullness of the hope of glory, being Christ, living within you, then DO let the Lord know, that you want your real inheritance in Him, not that, which is only temporal. For truly, God and His Kingdom does far surpass any and everything in this world and it’s when we come to see this value, that we then, are able to lay hold of our true inheritance in Christ, being not only in Heaven, but also here on earth, as well.

Colossians 1:27

To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Ephesians 1:17-21

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.

Written while studying the word one day.

This is unedited in order to release now, please excuse all grammatical errors.

ALREADY

already

One of the words that continue to keep coming up in my spirit is the word ALREADY. Being that everything that the Father would have to take place, that it is ALREADY so, it is already in motion, it is already to be revealed in its perfected manifested time. So this word has truly encouraged me greatly, and even what I have forgotten about this word, it has continually come back up in one way or another.

One of the scriptures that I am continually blessed by when I think about this ALREADY word is how it says, the Father knows the things that we have need of before we ask Him (see Matthew 6:8) Hallelujah! Not to mention, how in many instances, when we read the word though it might not say already out right, it IS saying ALREADY in context of what is being said.

Therefore, currently I’m really positioning myself intentionally to receive in a greater way the ALREADY supernatural word, knowing that this and that has ALREADY been done. Thus, it is ALREADY yes and amen! Hence, I can go ahead and praise with this ALREADY word and watch this proceeding word of the Lord that I am choosing to receive by faith come to pass. I thank the Father that too, this ALREADY word is a shield that does come against any & everything that would try to declare anything different in the natural realm.

I believe that this already word is as well, not just for me, but that it too, is a word for His body, His remnant as a whole, one I believe that if we holdfast to and choose to receive this word, it’ll help us to defeat and move forward victoriously in a lot of things that the enemy may’ve once tried to use to discourage and attack us with.

Thank You Father, for Your word that says: It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life (John 6:63)

It Shall Be!

it-shall-be2

It Shall Be

In a dark and fallen world I’ve always wondered

How was it, that one day, every tongue will confess

Jesus is Lord and every knee bow,

But after September 11th in 2001, I got a glimpse

Of that word becoming reality

I actually witnessed the wall of denomination

Being temporarily erased

And actually witnessed the colors

Of my sisters and brothers only be spiritual faced.

Thus the righteousness of God

Shall spring forth in this place

Truly, God will be praised by all walks of life.

All nationalities,

Not individually, but collectively

Love shall abound and be spread abroad throughout His body.

A love that can’t help but overflow

Into others’ boxed-in territories.

A love different from what this world calls love

One that will leave a permanent impression

And draw even non-believers to Christ without question.

For the One and Only true living God shall rule and reign

That His glory is not just heard of and read about

But here on this earth is made plain.

Listen, the time is now, where the words,

“What denomination are you a part of” should no longer be

And only the words “Are you for or against Christ?” is what’s questioned, loudly

Because likeminded for the remnant we shall be

One Spirit, one faith, one baptism, we shall be

One mission we shall have

For the Shekinah glory of God shall appear,

Meaning His very manifested presence

That all with breath shall walk in a Holy reverence.

For Humility shall be

And the pride of all shall flee

Returning us all to the state of

“Oh Lord, of your goodness and mercy I am soooo not worthy”

(c) All Rights Reserved Sepia Gladden

Psalm 86:9 reads: All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord, And shall glorify Your name.

Habakkuk 2:14 For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, As the waters cover the sea.

Praying the Word of God

 

CAM01684-1

Praying the Word of God

I have found, that when we get strategic and pull out the word of the Father, and pray that over our different situations that we face, then that, will supernaturally, help us to remove the many different maybe, negative emotions, we may have about xyz.

And you see, it’s all those different negative emotions, in truth, that can possibly prevent the effectiveness of our prayers from going forth and accomplishing.

So, what I’ve found, is that, when I pull out the word of God, concerning those many different situations and pray the word, that I then, enter into a realm of praying the Father’s thoughts and will vs. mine. And we know, when we pray His will, that produces results. For the Father, has told us, His ways and thoughts are higher than ours.

Isaiah 55:9-11“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

If you’re like me, there have been many times, where I desired to pray about XYZ but because of my own emotional attachment to it etc. I felt like, I didn’t even know, what to pray. Therefore, I stayed stuck, left to deal with the same stuff and weighed down.

But praise be unto the Father! I have seen VICTORY when I allow His word and thoughts to replace mine.

In truth, sometimes, the words we pray, out of our good intentions, just aren’t enough, to see a Heavenly, supernatural impact. Thus, the critical need, to pray the word of God.-sepia gladden

Romans 8:26-27 AMP reads: In the same way the Spirit [comes to us and] helps us in our weakness. We do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit Himself [knows our need and at the right time] intercedes on our behalf with sighs and groaning’s too deep for words. 27 And He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because the Spirit intercedes [before God] on behalf of God’s people in accordance with God’s will.

You see, the more and more, I grow in the Father, the more and more, I see, when I am not praying His word, my weakness and inability to really pray, in a way, that really hits the target. Now though, I know, Romans 8:26-27 is a scripture, that’s often, been used to point out our need to pray in the Spirit being, in tongues, in which, I do believe in yet, I too, believe this is scripture is just as true, concerning to pray His very word.

For the word of God, tells us in John 6:63: It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.

Now how can we apply praying the word of God?

Let me do share, some of the things, I have done, as a way to do so. Whebever, I read through the word, being the Bible, and the Father allows scriptures to leap off the page and minister to me in one way or another, one thing, I’m becoming more and more diligent to do, is to write them down on flashcards. Such, when I pray, concerning certain things, I can pray, the word of the Father, because in praying His word, that transcends,  my emotions and also, causes there to be again a supernatural impact, that I DO see in the natural realm, one that, not only concerns the situations, but also concerning me.

Now granted, I know, that in order to soak in the word, write the word and to pray it, it is a sacrifice, but in doing so, the gemstones, from the Father’s heart is released and the empowerment to intercede is given.

Hebrews 4:12 reads: For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Another, effective thing I’ve seen work is that, I also, read books written by authors who pray the word, and so, in praying what’s in the book, it’s not only, helped me to pray, but how to pray in more specific ways concerning other areas in my life.

I personally have used books written by the author Stormie Omartian and Elizabeth George. I too, have used their books to pray for me, my children and husband.

1 John 5:14-15 reads: Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

I look forward to hearing about all the praise reports, we each, will have in intentionally, praying and storing the Father’s word in us.

Here, is a picture below, of just a few flash cards, I have made over the years, with the intention to store it in my heart, apply and pray them.

And the Promise Came to Pass!

and the promise came to pass pictureAnd the Promise came to pass…

Well, PRAISE the Lord I am so excited to announce that my promise came to pass!!! As a result of me choosing to put my trust in God instead of man, the Lord blessed me tremendously with yet, another supernatural birth. One that has come with so many, manifested miracles that I’ll have to put those in a separate book, but today, what I want to focus on is this, when it came time for me to receive my promise, if you read “Waiting on the Promise Part I and II” then you could clearly see how the pressure definitely intensified.

It intensified with temptation, me being at times uncomfortable, tired, weary, feeling different emotions in both the Spirit and natural realm, but yet, in it all, you also read how, though yes, I did experience all of that, still, through it all, I chose to stand. Stand in faith, and believe God for what at that time, had not yet manifested and because of God’s grace and His grace ALONE and because of my stand in Him, I was NOT PUT TO SHAME. Glory to God! Now with this particular pregnancy, I remember having a prophet call me and say, when it was near the end, that I had God’s grace and not long after that word was spoken the Lord allowed me to come into full understanding of that word, by allowing me to divinely hear a bible teacher on TV say how, God’s grace is not only God’s free benefits given to us by salvation, but it is also, God’s enabling power to do for us what we ourselves, in our hopelessness cannot do, and His grace is saying, there is proof of it, that is evident.

And so, when I received this word and revelation of this word boy, did I hold onto it with dear life and boy, did it impart into me the supernatural grace for the journey I faced being, His supernatural ability to receive His supernatural promise.

Although, the war as I mentioned, nearing the arrival of my promise definitely increased, looking back, I can testify truly, how through it all, I DID have the Father’s enabling power to overcome, to stand, to push past the discomfort etc. at work in me, because in truth, I myself, in my own strength, would’ve surely failed due to the extreme warfare I was dealing with. Yes, the warfare which Ephesians 6:12 tells us, that we as believers do face. Yet, what I’d like to release to you prophetically, is this…

If you too, can receive this word by faith, while you’re waiting on your own personal promises of God, though yes, the pressure may indeed be turned up, because you’re so close to seeing and receiving the promise come from heaven and be birthed here on earth, if as well, you too, choose to stand, trust, and not faint in God, despite all else, then God’s grace, being His enabling power, will be given unto you and do for you, what you in your own strength cannot. His grace WILL be at work on your behalf, such that one day, you too, can testify how, finally you did receive (past tense) your promises of the Lord. Yes, in the here and now. Yet, in the meantime, while in your current wait, please know this, the promises of God are…Yea and Amen! I can’t wait to hear your testimonials as well, as a result to your faith and stand in God.

Inexpressible!

Inexpressible
With everything that’s within me
I still,
Could never truly express
The totality of you…
The Almighty.

I mean honestly,
My words, they just do it no justice
Compared to your vastness and greatness.

For you are inexpressible
And though Lord,
You know, I try and try
Through every part of my being
Even still,
It just, does not measure up.

For when I do try to communicate you to others
Many just look at me
Like, I’m completely crazy.

Yet Lord,
You are ever so real
And ever, so personable to me.

Though no, with my natural eyes, I can’t see you
Still, it’s as though, you’re always right here,
Always ever present, and always so near.

In fact,
One of the greatest things I love about our relationship
Is your nearness, I feel.
To know,
I can communicate with you about anything
And to know,
Not only do you hear
But also care,
Not to mention, respond.
That is priceless.

Thus the reason, why I say,
You are so, so, so….
Inexpressible

For Such a Time as This!

You have been chosen
Handpicked by God to come forth for such a time as this
Chosen to stand and not be backed down due to the spirit of intimidation
Chosen to walk out your identity with boldness and confidence
For the sake of the nations
Not to be a copycat of the next, oh no!
But instead, to be unique the original, as God Almighty
Has called and created you to be.
Yes,
For such a time as this God is knocking,
Knocking upon the door of your heart,
Saying, “Please, my child, go forth and do your part. Please, display my creative art
And even, if some may think you are straight insane
Its OK, because to do all I’ve called and predestined you for
You will have to go against the grain.”
Therefore, refuse to just sit there and watch time pass you by
Because, again, for such a time as this,
You have been chosen and destined.
Do you want rest? Do you want sleep? Well, here’s your instruction:
Keep on faith walking,
Lay hold of that which is rightfully yours,
Finding purpose and fulfillment in Christ Jesus who died to set you free.
And know, to everything there is a season,
Hence the reason
You have been called to embrace this time.
So don’t think, but know
That for such a time as this
You have been chosen,
Placed on a Heavenly assignment,
Put on God’s itinerary to manifest,
Which means you’re not a won’t-happen,
You’re not a might-happen
But instead, you are guaranteed.
Thus, do, Be.
And of course, only with the help of the Trinity
Leading and guiding thee…

Mark 16:15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature…”
