Sons of God

Revelation 21:7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.

Galatians 4:7 Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the manifestation of the sons of God.

1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: be we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

Robin's heart: For a very long time I have rejected the idea that believers are the "Bride of Christ." I have based this rejection on Revelation 21:9-11. In this scripture it says that the  "New Jerusalem" is the Bride. I see over and over again where people refer to the Body of Christ as the Bride, so how can so many people be wrong? Well I can't answer that question. All I know is that I have never felt like I am a part of the Bride. I have analyzed this feeling within myself and attributed it to being divorced. Perhaps I have a bad taste in my mouth about marriage. Perhaps I see it as temporary, so I don't want my relationship with Jesus to be temporary. So based on these thoughts, I have convinced myself that I must be wrong. On the other hand, I believe being a son or daughter of the Most High to be a position of more value than being a bride. A child of God receives an inheritance. In-laws do not take part in inheritance unless specifically stated in a last will and testament. If we are the "Bride of Christ," that would make us daughter-in-laws to Father God. Isn't this thought absurd? Plus I believe any doctrine that is widely accepted within the Body of Christ is most likely false. This has been proven true many times for me. Satanic teachings are deeply entrenched within the church and have twisted the word to keep us all bound. Being the Bride of Jesus to many may give them a warm feeling because they are romantic. I'm not romantic, and never have been. Perhaps that is another reason why I have always questioned this doctrine. Today the Lord spoke to me about this topic. I pray that you seek Him for personal revelation. For me this is a much needed long time coming overdue answer to prayer, and I believe that I must share.

Prophecy received 8/19/2018 10:23 a.m.

Daughter write My words and sit and listen with your Lord. For many are calling on My name at this time. My kingdom is growing world wide just as I have planned. There are those who believe that My Spirit no longer has the power to draw men to Me and to change the hearts of the deceived, but the great I Am knows how to reach even the most corrupted unbelievers. 

The Leaders in your world have been chosen and positioned for such a time as this. They are leading to destruction, and have sold their souls to Satan, but not all is lost as of yet. Therefore, continue to pray for them to be led by My Spirit and pray for My will to be done in each of your individual territories. 

I say learning of Me comes from a place of yearning. A longing to know Me your Savior. Search your heart and I shall reveal your true intention in your service to your Lord. The truth may surprise even the most diligent as to their reasons in serving. To know Me is a gift given by My Son (Matthew 11:27). He alone knows what dwells deeply within your minds and wills.

Revelation is a gift from heaven. With each piece you receive you are stepping towards seeing clearly. Most only see through shaded glass and distorted images. Seek Me with all your heart and I will give counsel and wisdom. Many believe they know Me because they know My word, but I tell you this day they are deceived. Only by My Spirit giving life to My word can one understand scriptures. My word is the vehicle but My Spirit is the power source that keeps it moving. The two together are the answer. The word without the Spirit brings emprisonment. Spirit without the word invites deceiving spirits. A witness of the two is confirmation of truth.

My daughter you have had a check in your spirit for a long time in regards to the Bride of Christ. I have given you this inward message to keep held for just this time. I say this day many have been led astray. They believe what man has taught and have not sought the Lord. This belief then opens the door to other false beliefs. It is a revolving door. Ye are My sons and daughters. Ye are My church which is the Body of Christ. Ye are one with Him if you are born again. He in you and you in Him. 

Inheritance is given to sons and daughters. It is reserved for My blood bought children. Peace child and be not dismayed at what you are witnessing. This is the time of revelation. Time for My truths to ring loudly and to bring My Church freedom. Some shall receive truth while others hold tightly to what makes them feel secure. Authority is given to sons and daughters. It is part of your inheritance that Satan would like to steal. He desires to keep My Body powerless, and diminish it's importance.

My first born Son is not the Bridegroom to my incoming children. The marriage union gives my children a home in which to live. Your Father provides a beautiful home for His children to live where no evil dwells. My New Jerusalem shall come down from heaven and be a place that My light fills. It is your Home and is the place where My presence dwells. My children, ye are One with My Son. Therefore, you too are part of the Bridegroom. There is no separation between the two if your are born again of His Spirit. My first born has made the way for many others to join the dinner.


Simply sharing: I would just like to share with any interested that something strange is happening. Almost every time I glance at the clock I see consecutive numbers, like 123 or 234 or 432.....This has been going on for several days. I believe we are getting very close to an event that God has warned us about. The question is, which one? Economic collapse, earthquake, terrorist attack, volcanic eruption, or one of the many more He has shown us. Let us draw near to the Lord and trust Him to protect us from the approaching fear filled storms. Most importantly let us stay in a place of listening for His voice.

Psalm 103:6 The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

Freedom From Thoughts of Sin

Romans 10:9&10 
That if you confess with you mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him for the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse of from all unrighteousness.

Today, I would  like to wrap up out discussion of True Repentance. Through this Holy Spirit inspired lesson, it has become clear that as long as we are holding onto remorse and regret, which is man's definition of repentance, we are defeated. It is a mentality as a wall between us and the Lord. Freedom in Christ Jesus comes only as we allow the Lord to transform our thinking. We must receive a love of the truth or we shall stay deceived. Focusing on our weaknesses, failures, and mistakes brings a sense of condemnation. As we invite the Spirit of Holiness into our lives, he not only cleanses us from all these carnal thoughts, but also imparts unto us a sense of freedom and acceptance within our spirits. Plus, He gives us the power to overcome! When we are born again we become a new creation. Old things have passed away and behold all things have become new! Our spirits are spotless and beautiful and becomes inhabited by the Holy Spirit. This is a glorious experience, but there remains much work yet to be done by the Lord. Our minds and bodies need to be overhauled, and this takes time. The sad part is, man's teachings don't help us grow. They actually reinforce carnality, and so therefore keep us defeated. Man's teachings are based on reason and do not help us spiritually. They keep us aware of our sins which is the exact opposite of God's will. The clearest way to describe it would be to say that, the more you think about sin the more it has power and control over you. The more you focus on the Lord, the more you live in His provided freedom. Remember: to be carnally minded is enmity against God! 

I will share that as the Lord is revealing to me the truth about repentance, which is a place where we enter into Jesus Christ's finished work of salvation, I am seeing the fruit of the Spirit growing within me. I don't have the frequent darts of past sins tormenting my mind, and the current temptations to participate in sin seem to be nonexistent. I can not explain how or what is happening, but I know it is a work of the Holy Spirit. For the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and self-control.

I have lived under condemnation just about 100% of my life. I have accomplished many great sins during my lifetime for which I have in the past felt much regret and remorse over. Now that I am receiving true forgiveness and cleansing from the Lord, I feel like these past sins no longer have power over me. I feel like I'm walking continually in this "changed mind" by the power of His Holy Spirit. I'm thinking of lovely, pure, and good report things. I pray if you have suffered from condemnation like me, that you ask the Lord to help you see the truth. It may not happen overnight, but He will eventually lead you to His rest. I pray we all grow and receive the Spirit of wisdom and revelation of Christ Jesus and that He gives to us the knowledge of His perfect will. Amen.

Tear Off the Roof!

Matthew 5:17-20 
Now it happened on a certain day, as He was teaching, that there were Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting by, who had come out of every town of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was present to heal them. Then behold, men brought on a bed a man who was paralyzed, and whom they sought to bring in and lay before Him. And when they could not find how they might bring him in, because of the crowd, they went up on the housetop and let him down with his bed through the tiling into the midst before Jesus. When He saw their faith, he said to him, "Man, your sins are forgiven you."

Let us first notice in this story that the power of God was present to heal everyone that was present at this jam packed home. The question is, if the power was present why weren't the people elated with excitement and jumping for joy? It was because they saw no reason to rejoice. The people present must have needed their brains washed. Therefore, this was the reason that no one was receiving what the present power of the Lord was offering. It is curious as to why exactly did these people come to see Jesus if not because they believed. Maybe they considered Him a form of entertainment or perhaps they came for curiosity reasons. They had probably heard  many stories about Him through the grapevine. What we do know is that the Pharisees and teachers of the law came to discredit him. We do understand that Jesus jeopardized their livelihoods and questioned their traditions. The religious leaders were there to observe him and to cause harm. They did not come to listen and learn. So let us take a closer look at this story.

In this lesson the Lord wants us to focus on the paralyzed man and the barriers which attempted to prevent them from reaching Jesus. The barriers these men faced in their quest to bring their friend to Jesus represents the same obstacles our faith is confronted with on a daily basis in order to receive the blessing from heaven. It takes a complete commitment to walk by faith despite every obstacle we face.

So let us jump right in and examine the various problems blocking the cripple from reaching Jesus. First there were so many people in this house that the door was blocked. The blocked door represents anything that would cause a person to remain lost. Possibly condemnation, or just outright rebellion may block the "Door." Next this entourage had to deal with the doubt filled unsaved crowd. I say this because the power of God was available to heal, but there is no mention of anyone being healed except this cripple. Also, the people probably ridiculed the cripple. I say this because if he was welcomed by the crowd one would think that they would have given an open pathway so he could reach Jesus, but they didn't. Next the cripple's friends had to overcome the problem of carrying this man to the roof. Can you imagine how these 4 men carried a completely paralyzed man up a lean ladder? Maybe one of them actually placed him over his shoulder and singularly climbed the ladder...who knows! Let us hope that it was a one story building! It is important to note that these men knew they needed to get up higher to reach Jesus! We must stand above the crowd to find the truth, the way, and the life. Not much to see at ground level!

Once on the roof they confronted the next obstacle. How to get into the room below? I wonder who came up with the brilliant idea to tear the roof open! Where there is a will there is a way! Right? I wonder what the owner of the home thought about this escapade? Regardless, I believe this roof represents a closed heaven or a closed mind. I believe the Lord is showing us our separated condition from Him prior to salvation because of sin and bad thinking. Also, it is possible that the removal of the roof corresponds to the veil being torn as Jesus died on the cross. The Lord is saying "heaven is now open to all who will believe!" Come on in! Also, come to me and I shall transform your thinking! Once the roof was open these men still had one more challenge.

They then had to figure out how to get their paralyzed friend to Jesus. They decided to lower him as he laid on his bed. I believe the Lord is saying that the lowering of the cripple represents the death of our old man that occurs during the new birth experience. As this man was being lowered, the old corrupted man was dying, and when Jesus spoke the new man was resurrected! What did Jesus say?

He said:

"Man, your sins are forgiven you." and He also said
 "I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house."

So that is exactly what this man did! How wonderful is our Lord! This happens to all of us when we receive salvation. We rise up and we walk! Jesus changed this man's previous bed of imprisonment and made it into his place of rest! Jesus makes all things turn for the good to those who love Him!

Now here is where this lesson is connected to yesterday's post. Notice that Jesus did not pull out his billy club and point at the cripple as he came through the hole in the roof, and say REPENT! No He did not do this. Jesus spoke to them, and granted forgiveness and healing. Is it possible that the two are connected? Absolutely yes! This story shows us that the gift of salvation is available to all who come to Jesus and through believing, receive.

Matthew 11:28 Come to me all you who labor and heavy laden and I shall give you rest.  Amen!

Change of Mind

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering towards us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

Matthew 9:12 When Jesus heard it, He said to them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance."

Acts 5:31 Him God has exalted to His right hand to be Prince and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.

Acts 19:4 Then Paul said, "John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Jesus Christ."

Romans 2:4 or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and long-suffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?

2 Timothy 2:25 in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God will perhaps grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth...

Before reading this lesson, I hope you take the time to look at the referenced scriptures. The Holy Spirit is continuing to teach us about True Repentance. Truth comes though revelation by the Holy Spirit and is confirmed by the word of God. I believe He is focusing on the topic of "Repentance" because it takes reinforcement for us to mentally comprehend it's true definition, and because our loving Father wants us to be free from the doctrines of men. We have a deeply ingrained misunderstanding of what True Repentance is, and we are daily bombarded with misinformation that continues to mislead us. If you are like me, you hear MANY prophesy and teach using the word "repentance" incorrectly as if it is a baseball bat or whip that God uses to coerce us into submission. They instruct us with an underlying attitude that we must "do it" or we will be condemned. True prophecy from the Holy Spirit does not use the word "Repentance" in this way, MAN DOES. The Spirit of prophecy is a witness to Jesus Christ! My Jesus is Wonderful and Peace producing. He is not condemning and overbearing. People that use the word "Repentance" as a weapon are bound with a stronghold of our adversary. I know this to be true because I was guilty of teaching in this way due to religious indoctrination as a child. Religion is a satan produced organization that uses mind control to create disenchantment towards the King of kings! The good news is that the Lord is currently delivering my mind from that monstrous thing.

I will do my best to keep this clear and simple because that's how I know I learn best. The Holy Spirit desires for us to be free from man's twisted definition of repentance. First, if we look in the concordance for the definition of repentance it is G3341. It means "change of mind." Clearly that does not say plead and grovel at the feet of God for forgiveness. If you read the above scriptures and replace "change of mind" wherever you see repentance it will help you understand the truth. We are to "come to a change of mind," "called to a change of mind," "given a change of mind," "immersed into a change of mind," "led into a change of mind," and lastly, "granted a change of mind." Do you see it? Repentance is a gift. It is a meeting place unto the Lord. It is something the Lord offers us, and we accept the gift, and step into Jesus Christ where we are forgiven for all sins we have done against Him. It is through His love and mercy that we are glorious saved. It is not by a turning from our wicked ways and crying out for forgiveness. Salvation belongs to the Lord, it is not something we can work for.

This is the good news people! We don't have to try and try and try and repent and repent and repent to be right or righteous before God. We just receive what he offers! He leads us into repentance because He is a good God. He is merciful and gracious. He loves us and wants that none be lost. Oh help us Lord see the truth and to be free from the lies of our adversary and from the doctrines of men! Alleluia! Glory to our Lord and King!

final note: The Lord is placing another message on my heart that will reinforce this message given, and I will share it tomorrow. We shall take small bites so we can absorb  the truth about "Repentance." It is a "Change of Mind," which is given to us by the Lord. Are you beginning to see it?

Yesterday the Holy Spirit placed these words upon my heart:

Faith in Him is a commitment to depend on our Savior and His powerful ability
 in every circumstance.
It is the Way to Life.
It is completely separate from feelings which are connected to the physical.
That is the Way to Death.
Faith in Him is a mountain moving substance given to us by the Lord at our born again experience. 
Faith in Him is what causes the Kingdom of God to enter our earthly circumstances to change what looks like to be the inevitable.
The Lord says Trust in Me. Simply believe and you shall receive salvation in it's full definition.

Thank you Lord that you give to all generously who come to you in and attitude of humility.

I AM Your Refuge

Psalm 46
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swell. Selah

Revelation 12:6 
Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

Revelation 12:14 
 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 

Message received 4:05 a.m. 8/13/2018

Before time began I was there. I created all and I am the eternal Lord. I would desire that all peoples would come to Me but as hell fills, it reveals this will not be. Robin, I have an important message that I want proclaimed.   

Come to Me your Savior and King 
before the clock strikes midnight and the hour glass empties!

The hour of deep darkness approaches and the majority will not know where to go. They will believe all is lost and their source of help is man. Just as all seems gone there will be a glimmer of hope appear. My light will begin to radiate from those few who are called by My name. The lost shall see the great light even from  afar. They shall come to you but will instead find their Lord. You children who have allowed My Spirit to prepare you will be used to draw all men unto My Kingdom. 

A time of great weeping and wailing shall be met with My glory. The two shall collide at a previously uncrossed boundary place in the spirit. Then and only then shall some hardened hearts be mended.

There is a place in the spirit that is prepared for your safety. This place does not need to be reached through earthly travel, but is exactly where you are currently located. Supernatural protection in the spirit manifests as safety in the natural. People believe they will need to go to the mountains and hide in the crevices, but I say there is refuge that is only found in Me, and found in the exact spot I have placed you.

Have I not said a thousand may fall at your side, but it shall not come near you? How do you think this is made possible? The person standing directly next to you may perish, but those hidden in Me shall be protected. This is because I have a place of safety for those children of promise.

Spirit supersedes the natural. Safety comes though My Spirit. If I have not told you to flee then I have purpose exactly where you are residing currently. Trust in your Lord, for I am your Refuge. Fear not about those things coming to your earth. My plans and purposes shall happen just as I have determined. Draw near My children and you shall have nothing to fear. The Great I am has spoken.

"to search for peace and safety apart from Me is a journey of futility" 
spoken by the Holy Spirit a little while later

Isaiah 54:10
For the mountains shall depart and the hills be removed, but My kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace be removed, says the Lord, who has mercy on you.

Following the Leader

John 8:12
Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life."

Matthew 4:16 
The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned.

2 Peter 1:19 
And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

Robin's heart: Yesterday, I was reading some of the posts and comments on WBJ, and one of the comments stood out to me. It was written by a young man who has recently decided to follow the Lord. In his comment he was expressing a concern that He hasn't learned to hear the voice of the Lord as of yet. As I was pondering this young man's thoughts, the word "dawn" came to my mind. Since the Lord has begun using me in this teaching ministry, this is how He usually begins to place a message on my heart that He wants shared. He chooses the topic, and I say "yes Lord."

First, let's briefly think on the word "dawn." When we think of the "dawn of day" it is the first light. It gives us the impression of a new day, and a fresh start. It gives us a pleasurable feeling as we are given the opportunity to "begin again." Also, when we think of something "dawning" on us, it is a eureka moment. It is a first time realization or thought on a subject that we had not seen before. Most people do not realize it, but this is the voice of God speaking to them. 

Sometimes humans tend to make simple things difficult. We attempt to use our human abilities to be successful when we first start walking with the Lord. We "try" to hear Him, and get discouraged when we don't. I'm learning that if the Lord has something to say, He will make himself clear as we are listening. Most importantly to know, He has sent His Holy Spirit to teach us all about His kingdom. As we follow the Lord, teaching us to hear His voice is one of the first lessons He begins. 

God speaks in many ways. This young man is already hearing from the Lord because he was participating on an end times website, and fellow-shipping with like minded brothers and sisters in the Lord. Sometimes we expect God to speak to us like we have learned to communicate with other people, but God's ways are so much higher. Do you remember as a child playing "follow the leader?" He communicates in many ways, and as we grow we learn more about how he speaks and how He conveys His messages. Amazingly, we were made by Him to be receivers, and the Lord is the transmitter. Also, we are not to fear because His communication equipment never wears out or breaks.

I would just like to encourage anyone reading this who is longing to hear from the Lord, and feels like He's not talking. I would say that you are already hearing from Him, but just don't quite yet understand. I would encourage you to just quietly listen throughout your day. Look around you because He can use nature, and your surroundings to give you a message. He may also give you a "dawning" moment about something you were not thinking about, but a thought or idea just drifts into your mind. Most importantly, know that He is sovereign, and He knows how to reach you. His phone book never gets misplaced, and He always keeps your number.

True Repentance

This message is dedicated to a true prophet of God in hiding. He knows who He is and he is precious to me and the Lord. Over the past year or so He has been repeatedly sharing a message God has given him with me. I have done my best to grasp the depth of the message, but it seemed to go straight over the top of my head. True prophets of God are called to reformation. One who is called to bring change to the Body of Christ. Change in areas where we have been taught incorrectly. I will briefly share the scenario from yesterday, and then will give God's answer as I called upon Him this morning. This message is for those who truly want the truth. It will most likely offend you if it's your first time hearing it. That is because you have a stronghold in your mind that will resist it. I know this because I have experienced this resistance as I have heard this message from him for about a year now, and am just starting to understand it.

Yesterday, I was privately questioned by this prophet about a comment I made in the blog post "Lift Up Your Gates." In this post which you can read below, I stated that the first thing we must do before God can begin to flow through us is to repent. It is clear in the post that my definition of repentance is "a turning away from evil and then a turning towards the Lord". This friend of mine disagreed with this idea, and took the time to teach me about the truth the Lord has shown Him over the last two years, AGAIN. This message within Him is as of John the Baptist crying out in the wilderness. The message has been given to him because God wants to shine the light on what man has been taught about repentance. Man's definition is MAN CENTERED AND IS WRONG, and it is causing us to eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. He is compelled to shout the truth from the rooftops! Problem is I didn't understand and I became very agitated! He did his best to explain to me what he meant, but the resistance within me was like hitting the reject button as he explained. I will give you his words rephrased a little so we can understand!

Repentance is all about the Lord, not us. It isn't about our turning from evil it is about His initiative and invitation as He intervenes on our behalf which we then respond to. We are forgiven and cleansed even before we turn to the Lord because of what Jesus Christ accomplished on the cross. Repentance is for His glory. Not about turning from evil, but about His call to His glory as we meet him.

As my entire being was rejecting what he was explaining, I knew deep within me there was a longing to understand. My mind and body both went into panic mode. Agitation and confusion were in control, but I truly desire the truth. Despite my negative feelings towards what this prophet was saying, I asked the Lord to help me understand. Joyfully I may say, that as we yearn for the truth, God answers.

So this morning upon awakening I heard "answered prayer." I love the Lord so much, and when He speaks I cherish His words with all my being. When I heard what He said I received it, but had no idea what He was referring to, and God does not immediately explain Himself. He waits to see if we are interested in what He has to say......Are we listening?

So during my devoted prayer time He said pick up and a pen and write. Here is what He said.

Regret is not a part of My kingdom child. Everything you have experienced whether good or bad has and will continue to be used to mold and develop you into all I have planned. Remorse is neither a part of my kingdom, but freedom in Christ Jesus. These human feelings and mindsets are all hindrances to growth and are as eating from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. I use your mistakes as stepping stones to aide you in walking across the water by faith. You must go through many situations to reach your final destination. Just know that I am always there loving and guiding you to the place of perfect peace. Within Me, there is no condemnation.

As I received His powerful words, I had NO CLUE as to why the Lord was speaking this to me. I did not understand that His message was related to the discussion with my prophetic friend about repentance the prior day. However, I was led to look up the definitions for regret and remorse which then led to the understanding that the two actions are what define repentance..

regret: feel sad, or disappointed. repentant over something that has happened or been done.

remorse: deep regret or guilt for a wrong committed

repentance: the action of repenting; sincere regret or remorse

Only God could have known the exact definition of repentance that I would find online. He was letting us know that it is NOT His will for us to feel regret or remorse which is how man ultimately defines repentance. It is His will for us to receive Jesus's finished work on the cross through His invitation and intervention. It is not our "job" to repent from our evil ways, it is our part to receive His love and forgiveness that He freely gives to all who will believe.

Witnessing Scriptures:

Acts 16:31 
So they said, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household."

Romans 10:9 
that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him for the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 
For the Scripture says, Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame."

Final note: I pray that we all long to hear and learn from the Lord. Man has taught us many untruths because we live in a place where Satan rules. His kingdom enforces the Law of Sin and Death, but we are no longer under that law. We do not have to eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil any longer. We live under the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus, and can eat from the Tree of Life freely. Let us receive the truth and be free in Jesus name.

Lastly, I'm not led to edit my post on "Lift Up Your Gates." My incorrect comment gives evidence to God's great love and mercy as we are learning. As the Lord is developing us, He knows we will miss it sometimes. Amen.

Dream: LSU Football Tickets

Psalm 25:2 
It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, 
But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.

Well God has a sense of humor. Yesterday, we were discussing "date setting" within the prophetic community on WBJ, and I was one of the people who agreed that we as children of God aren't able to figure out God's timetable to the exact day for His appointed events. We were discussing the topic and stated that if someone is saying that a particular event is going to happen on a specific date, that these people were most likely going to be wrong. However, last night I had one of my short "God dreams." In fact, this one was so strange, that I attempted to discard it as a soulish dream, but it would not go away. It kept coming back to my mind every time I woke up during the night. I was thinking I would forget about it through this bout of insomnia, but here I am writing about it. Therefore, I am seeking the Lord for it's meaning. I will give the dream now in hopes that someone reading this may have an understanding. If not, we will patiently wait on the Lord to reveal it's meaning.

DREAM: I was walking on the right side of a co-worker who's name is John. We have known each other for many years. The perspective of the dream was through my eyes. The surroundings weren't noticeable in the dream. John and I were walking very closely to each other, and it was as if the viewpoint was closed off, like we were in a bubble. John and his words were the focus of the dream. Then he says "I have tickets for the first two LSU games, and you are going to come with me, 'like it or not.' END OF DREAM

RESEARCH: The name John means: Jehovah has been gracious; has shown favor. John was the one who baptized Christ in the Jordan River. He was also the one who "prepared the way for the Lord through crying in the wilderness." He ate locusts and honey....Next I found the 2018 football schedule for LSU on the internet which is listed above, and discovered that the first two home games that we could attend are September 8 against Southeastern Louisiana, and September 22 against Louisiana Tech. I'm doubtful that John would require me to travel a great distance to attend the out-of-town games because I'm not a football fan. When I was married, my x-husband purchased season tickets, but I only went once. I don't like fighting large crowds, sitting in a place with strangers right next to me, or being unable to eat and use the bathroom easily. Basically, I'm not one who likes these type of events. They feel like a prison sentence to me. That's also why it makes it interesting that the Lord would use this type of scenario to give a message. That's also why I initially shrugged it off as just a "pizza dream." Lastly, if you know anything about football, LSU games are a major form of entertainment for people in this state and the games draw huge crowds. Most of the games are normally sold out. They consume an entire day for most of the people that attend. Lots of partying and hype involved. So that is my research and thoughts. Now we shall wait on the Lord to reveal it's meaning. I will post the interpretation when it becomes available. If it were up to me, I would wait until I receive it's meaning before posting the dream, but I believe the Lord wants me to give the dream and research first. Please believe with me that the interpretation comes today!

ADDED RESEARCH: I looked at a day calculator and found that there are 30 days from now to the first home game and there are 44 days to the second home game. The number 30 is used quite frequently bibilically. Several biblical people began their ministries at the age of 30, including John. Jesus also began his public ministry at this age. The Hebrew letter "lamed" is associated with the number 30 and it means "authority or control." The number 44 is also an interesting number. It is associated highly with the presence of angels. The number 44 is also believed to represent "chosen people." Next I wanted to note that the mascot for LSU is the "tiger." The team is known as the LSU Tigers...Lastly, I also noticed that these two home games are the ONLY games where LSU is playing another team from Louisiana. All other games on the roster are against other states....that makes me go hmmmm....just a little added research....

INTERPRETATION: First off, the Lord wants us to see the big picture. I first asked Him if this dream applied to me personally, and I sensed it is not for me personally. It is a message for the United States of America to be warned. To continue, John in my real life represents a friend and co-worker. I see John as dependable and wise. John represents Jesus Christ. We co-labor with Him and He is our friend. John is doing the talking in the dream which symbolizes that the message is coming from Jesus Christ. John and I are walking together which means that the Body of Christ is moving with the Lord. We are on a journey to our destinies with Him for all eternity. John and I were in what appeared to be a bubble because nothing else matters when we are walking and listening to Jesus. He has our complete focus and there is nothing that can distract us from hearing what He has to say through His grace.

This dream is a warning from Him. LSU is located in the city of Baton Rouge and in my estimation is central Louisiana. I believe this represents central US. The location of the two other Louisiana teams that LSU is going to play on September 8 & the 22 is key. The rival's school for the first game to be played on September 8th is located NW from Baton Rouge. Therefore, I believe Jesus is telling us that there first will be an event that will take place in NW US. The school of the rival team for the second game to be played on September 22 is located E of Baton Rouge. This location represents E US. This is where I believe the Lord is showing us that the second event will take place.

The two games/events will be spaced closely together. I say this because the two weeks between the games in the dream in reference to a year is a short time span. Because John made the statement that I will go to the games with Him "like it or not" says the Lord is making it clear that the coming events can not be changed. They will be very devastating to our country and they will effect all of us. The question remains as to why did Jesus have tickets for these games? It is because He too will be a spectator. These events are not His will for America. These judgments are going to occur because of the Law of Sin and Death which is in operation. Repentance of the nation would change everything, but we all know in general people don't turn to God until they are in desperation. However it is important to understand that our Father God shall protect His own, and I know this because in the dream we walked together in a bubble. This signifies protection.

These two home games that John has tickets for are in September. The 8th and the 22nd. I don't believe Jesus is saying that the events will be in this specific month on those specific days, but that is a possibility. I do believe September is the 9th month and it is my understanding that the number 9 represents judgment. Also, football season is in the fall and winter months. Maybe the Lord is pointing to that time of the year for the events to occur. In conclusion, I do not know when these events will take place, but they are coming. Most importantly, we need to be ready as the Lord leads, and especially be ready by walking closely with Him.

Lift Up Your Gates!

1 Corinthians 3:16 
Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

Psalm 24:9 
Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! 
And the King of glory shall come in.

Luke 17:20&21 
Now when Jesus was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, 
Jesus answered them and said,
 "The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, 
See here! or See there! for indeed, the kingdom of God is within you."

Sometimes we think that we must reach out to some obscure place in order to touch God. Maybe if we pray hard enough we can reach Him in the distant heaven. However, the truth is, He lives within each one of us. He is alive and well, and is our ever present help in time of need. He is the King of Glory, and is the Giver of Life to all who will believe. Therefore, as the above scripture states, I believe we, as His children, are the gates and doors of His kingdom. We may either yield to His Spirit and allow His kingdom to flow through us, or we can resist Him, and prevent the Kingdom of God from coming to earth as it is in heaven. We are as the "Gatekeepers" of heaven on earth. 

So how do we open the gates and doors to allow the Lord to flow through us? First, we need to repent of our sins. Then the Lord Jesus begins removing those things that hinder His flow. There is an initial unlocking of the gates, and doors when we receive Him, but then there is a deeper work that His Spirit accomplishes as we grow. Secondly, I believe that our prayers and praises open the gates and doors into the realm of the spirit where the Kingdom of God and His Spirit dwells. (Psalm 100:4) And lastly, staying in an attitude of forgiveness towards self and others is another important factor in the equation (Matthew 6:12-15). Basically, just loving the Lord before and more than all else is what opens the Lord's ears and brings His presence into our lives. Let us love Him in sincerity by being willingly obedient as He calls.

I'm learning how to do my part in order to allow the Lord to enter earth through me, as I know you are too. Resting in Him is key. I hope that you have a Kingdom of God filled day! Amen!

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

Dream and Testimony: God is Our Deliverer

Update below:

I'm being led to share my latest testimony of the goodness of God. Unfortunately, the last several weeks have been challenging to say the least, but that all changed when Jehovah-Rapha entered the scene. Please allow me to explain. I have been suffering with low back pain. I can't remember ever having this problem before, but it has been a challenge. After sitting for a while I would attempt to stand up, and I would have muscle spasms that would pretty much immobilize me temporarily. Also, I have had trouble sleeping because when I would turn in bed I would flinch in pain, and finding a comfortable position was a challenge. Strangely enough, I had no clue what had caused the back problem. In the past when I have physically injured myself, I could usually think back and pinpoint exactly what I did to overexert and hurt myself. Well this time I could not, and it was really bothering me mentally. I did my best to figure out how I could have hurt my back, but nothing I had done correlated with the timing of when the pain began. Most importantly though, regardless of the reason for the pain I trusted God for healing. 

So here is where the story gets interesting. What seemed to coincide with the injury was an increase in my appetite. I know that sounds strange, but it was like I was always hungry. As a result, I gained several pounds which I felt was making my back pain worse. I would use all the will power I had, but I still continued to eat more than normal. It was like I could not get my hunger satisfied. This has gone on for several weeks. So this past weekend, I made a decision that on Monday I would start a serious diet. I went shopping and purchased the healthy foods according to the plan, and was confident that the Lord would help me overcome this back pain/appetite problem. I made a serious commitment to lose the weight I had gained. By the way, it's possible the back pain started after the appetite increase and weight gain, but I'm not sure. Either way, God used this experience to teach...

So I went to sleep for the night, with a good attitude and looking forward to beginning the diet the next morning. I would also like to add that I made a list of scriptures that I was going to stand on to help build my faith in God's ability to help me overcome. To my surprise I had a dream. I haven't had any dreams that I can remember lately. The last dream I remember having was a couple of months ago about the tsumani. I had posted the details of that dream on my previous blog that I deleted. The dream was a warning dream of coming judgment, but also that God will protect us. Since that time, my walk with the Lord has seemed to be in transition. 

So anyway, I had a dream last night. The dream was about one of my first boyfriends when I was a teenager. His name was Gary. When I dated him, he also dated another girl at the same time who he ended up marrying. Her name was LeeAnn. In the dream, which was very short, I understood that he had gotten a divorce from LeeAnn and that he was marrying someone else. That was the dream. Short and simple, but I knew in some way it was relevant to my current situation. Initially, I didn't understand how, but God always reveals His message as I seek Him. Through past experience, I find God uses people I have known in my life to speak symbolically to me sometimes in dreams. 

When I woke up, I didn't understand the meaning of the dream, but throughout the day understanding came. At some point during the day, I realized my back was not hurting. Once I realized that the pain was gone, I connected it to my dream. I researched the name Gary and it means a hard or bold spear. A spear is a weapon used for thrusting or can also be thrown. Gary was definitely someone who caused me pain in the past. The name Lee Ann means light, beautiful woman. I believe Lee Ann represents me who was the target for the spear. In the dream Gary divorced Lee Ann and was going to marry someone else.What I believe the Lord was telling me was that the enemy had thrust a spiritual spear into my back, but God was removing it. I believe the spear came through prayers of witchcraft from someone. The spear also somehow influenced my appetite, and when I decided to resist eating beyond that which I knew was healthy the Lord stepped in to help. I don't know if you believe this, but I'm convinced God wants us to understand more about how the enemy operates. Spiritual attacks are on the increase, and we need to stay on guard.

I don't have full understanding of what exactly took place in the spirit, but I believe God delivered me from a demonic attack. We need to all understand, that there are evil people who pray against Christians. They want nothing more than to see us suffer, and they are also attempting to harm our relationship with the Lord. Satan's goal is to put a wedge between us and God. I'm so glad he is defeated! 

Praise God for deliverance and healing! 

Ephesians 6:10-16
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rules of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts (or spears) of the wicked one.....

Update 8/8/2018: I was preparing my breakfast just a moment ago and the Lord spoke to my heart. He said, "the overeating was enforcing the effects of the spear." This is evidence that overeating is a sin. I know none of us want to believe this, but it's true. Sin is a "get in free" card to steal, kill, and destroy us! Let us walk with the Lord continually....

Where Are You Dwelling?

Revelation 13:6
Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.

Luke 21:35 For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth.

Isaiah 51:6
Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look on the earth beneath.
For the heavens will vanish away like smoke, the earth will grow old like a garment,
and those who dwell in it will die in like manner; but My salvation will be forever and my righteousness will not be abolished.

Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, "How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?"

Revelation 2:13 "I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan's throne is, and you hold fast to my name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.

Revelation 3:10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.

Revelation 11:10 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.

1 John 2:28
And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.

First, I want to explain the circumstance that inspired this lesson from the Lord. It occurred during my normal daily routine as I traveled to the store for shopping. As I traveled I was enjoying the day because the weather was pretty and sunny, and it was Friday! If you are an 8 to 5er, you know what I mean. So anyway, I was on my way to the store when I was, for the first time ever, stopped at a new red light that is positioned directly under a brand new concrete overpass. It is very similar to the one in the above picture. As I sat under this concrete overpass I felt a sense of unease. I could actually feel the pressure from the surrounding concrete. If you are like me, in general, you can sense these type of things. Kind of like when someone walks up behind you and you can sense their approach. It's a God given intuition or leading of the Spirit. Well this concrete roadway over my head felt so heavy! As I sat there waiting for the light to turn green, I prayed that the bridge would not collapse on me! Regardless of this fearful thought, I pondered about how this overpass compares to this world's system. The kingdom of darkness attempts to keep us from reaching heaven! It's power is as a concrete barrier blocking our way to heaven! We must all understand that the only way to the Father is through Jesus our Savior. We can not get through satan's established concrete barrier without Jesus's miracle working power. He has made a way through this concrete imprisonment, and given us His truth. It breaks every chain and hindrance placed upon us from birth. As we learn to walk in newness of life with our Lord through His Spirit, we are seated in heavenly places with Him and His kingdom. So to give the happily ever after to my little story, once the light changed to green I received such a sense of relief! I drove out from under the concrete overpass and felt free again! Friends, I hope I don't catch that light red again!

So here is what the Holy Spirit wants us to understand. He is teaching us about our "dwelling" place. He is highlighting the fact that all people physically live on planet earth, but spiritually we live in two separate groups. One group abides in the kingdom of darkness and are known as "earth dwellers." They are currently blocked from heaven and confined because they have rejected the Lord's offer of eternal salvation and freedom. Then there are the "heaven dwellers." This group is composed of those who have been born again and have laid down their own plans in exchange for His plans. They have followed the Way and Life through the path of concrete! We are known to God as "heaven dwellers." We choose to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus at all times and therefore are offered to live without limits. We choose by faith to sit in heavenly places. We deny the ways of this world in order to live a life which gives Him glory. We are "heaven dwellers" and drink of His fountain of living waters freely. We are separated from the "earth dwellers" by our faith in Him. Scriptures, especially in the book of Revelation clearly gives evidence to the differences and consequences of these two separate groups.

Earth dwellers are unfortunately completely deceived, and are on satan's team. They live a life based upon the perpetrated lies of him and his fallen team members. This group exists in darkness and have no light due to being blocked by demonic barriers. Their future is one of eternal destruction being forever separated from the love of the Father. They live behind a concrete wall, and are held captive and shackled. The good news is that their spiritual position can change with one decision. A decision to reject the ways of this world, and receive salvation through the gift of our Father, Jesus Christ our Savior. Until they repent, earth dwellers have a separate agenda than that of the Lord Jesus Christ. They focus on human plans, or receive the enemies deceptions. We are to pray for their deliverance.

Heaven dwellers are gloriously saved, and part of Jesus's team. This justified group lives and moves and have their being in Him. We abide in His presence because we are born again of His Spirit. We have confessed Jesus Christ Lord and have received His salvation. We abide in His love and are protected from the wicked one because we belong to Him. We are looking upward awaiting His soon return as commanded. He is our hiding place and we look to Him for everything. We walk not in sin because we live in repentance. We may have afflictions, but He delivers us from them. We are offered to come boldly to the throne of Grace because Jesus our High Priest intercedes in our place. We will not be ashamed and will have confidence when Jesus returns because we abide in His benefit of Righteousness. We have His joy because we believe that we are approved by Him, and are sealed with a guarantee given by His Spirit.

As a "heaven dweller," it is important for us to maintain our position in Him by spending our time fellow shipping with Him. Otherwise the constant pull of this world will cause us to become "earth dwellers" again. It is sad to say, but even those born again can be deceived into staying positioned spiritually as an earth dweller and living a life beneath the concrete. Worrying about the continual or coming storms and being fixated on them can cause one to be an earth dweller. Focusing on anything other than our Lord can cause one to be an earth dweller. Basically, we are only a "heaven dweller," if our eyes are stayed on Him alone. Flowing with His Spirit continually as a river runs is the only way to stay in Him and ultimately be a "heaven dweller" just as the Lord plans.

In conclusion, I believe this truth given by the Lord of Hosts explains why we see so much confusion and falsehoods within His body. It hurts my heart frequently to see our loving Father portrayed as if He is the enemy. This is an area where satan attempts to pull me back into his kingdom and be a "earth dweller." We must all resist the darkness to maintain our place in the light. I have come to experience that only Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I may stumble, but I will never turn back.

Lord I pray:
Isaiah 55:10  
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 then your thoughts. 

Psalm 24:4&5 
Show me Your ways, O Lord, Teach me Your paths. 
Lead me in Your truths and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation;
 on You I wait all the day.
