The Collective and the Common Union

I'm probably going to lose more readers and become more disliked after this post.  Amen.

What is the collective?   It can be a group of entities that share or are motivated by at least one common issue or interest.  These work together to achieve a common objective.   But is the objective the will of GOD or the will of man?

I encourage you to give James Lloyd a listen.  His latest program can be found here:  http://christianmediadaily.com/

Granted, it is a two hour program.  Get a cup of coffee/tea, maybe a pen and paper and take some notes.

Some folks have sent me links to a blogger who is vehemently against Mr. Lloyd and provides past DUI's and some other colourful dirty laundry in which he would like to prove that Lloyd is nothing but a poser and a player.   It's always good to check out who you listen to.   It's good to check out those who make the claims too.  We all have dirty laundry from the past: not excusing sin here, but be critical and guided by the Holy Spirit in all things.   

I gleaned a lot from today's program and I hope you do too!

Testimony

Our dog is sweet and cute, but it can be a facade, because to anyone (or anything) she finds threatening, she will growl and bark.  She can get her 'mean' on real good.

Our son Joshua has a water bottle.  One squirt of water to the face and the barking shuts up.

Understand?

This Too Shall Pass/Endure Till The End













This is a picture of my Dad.  I do miss him a lot sometimes, but I cherish some of his last words to me.  

I was going to take a couple days off from being his 'nurse' and I was concerned that you know, he might die before I get back.  He told me some very personal things, that I won't write here, but will say this, he told me, 'This is not goodbye, but see you later.'

Mom had died eight years prior to that and here I was losing my Dad now.  The soul wants what it wants...I was very torn between leaving and staying.  What if he died before I got back.  Would I regret it?  Was it wrong for me to leave, even though my brothers were there?  So like a little girl, I cried my guts out.  

We talked and had some profound moments and then my Dad said, 'Now.  Would you please go brush my teeth?'

I looked at him with shock and wonder at the fact that he could incorporate deep, deep heart issues and then lighten the load with a pair of dentures!  And I recognized yet again that will to embrace the LORD's will no matter the pain.

  I remember he got singled out at the airport one time because he had his little skull cap on.  With his dark skin and big shnoz, (nose), he looked kind of Muslim.   He was French Canadian Indian.  

So here's my Dad at the airport, suffering the beginning stages of bone cancer at 83, and just because he looks ethnic and just because he's cold, he's got to take off his shoes and go through all this procedure for what?   I remember feeling so angry! And I burned on the other side of the gate, not being able to do a dern thing about it!

These people didn't know who he was or what he was suffering and my Dad never complained...

(There is absolutely no dignity in dying.  This whole 'death with dignity' is a load of crap! Death is messy, painful, ridiculous, emotional and oddly enough...necessary.)

My parents have been gone a long time.  I know people older than me who still have parents.  Some even have grandparents!   

Now that I am a parent and grandparent (of sorts), I can imagine the pain of losing a child, having lost two babies and really, losing our adult son to the world. 

 One of my brothers was murdered (21) and another brother committed suicide (27).   How does one 'go on' after enduring such pain, not once, but twice? 

  How does one ensure that the younger children don't get ignored/neglected, while the parent grieves (sometimes for years)?  After becoming a parent myself, I found myself blown away at my parents tenacity. 

Grief has to have it's place and time, but we cannot give grief more of a place and more time than it deserves!

The Christian walk is progressive.  We are going from one battle to the next, but we are also going from strength to strength, as HIS power is made manifest through our weaknesses.  Psalm 84

For some time I have had to endure a humiliating, and oh so annoying stomach problem called IBS, which stands for Irritable Bowel Syndrome.   I was talking to a sister one time and she said she was so thankful I had IBS because for years she had felt so isolated and anxious, thinking she was the only one that had it.  And being a Christian of course, we are not supposed to have any problems.  And that my friends is IBS (Instant Bull Sh##) brought to you by satan himself.

So what can we learn from really old people?  That this too shall pass.   When you are in the midst of it, it sure doesn't seem like it will pass, but it is passing.

When I asked my Dad how to go on regarding different life issues, he said, "Embrace the pain."  

You've got to have some kind of Holy Spirit intestinal fortitude/understanding, to say something like that, but he lived it and so I believed him.

Is there purpose in pain?  I mean our flesh wants to avoid it at all costs, but what example did JESUS give us for ideal living in this life?

Hebrews 12
1Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,


2Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

3For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

To scorn is to deprive of honor or ornament.  Shame is a feeling of guilt or disgrace.  When JESUS died on the cross, even in HIS death, HE was letting us know that there is no shame in dying.

He who seeks to save his life, will lose it.  Those who lose it will find it.  

If we didn't ever look at the news, videos, blogs, any information ever again and only existed right where we are at, where GOD has placed us, would we become alarmed about ebola or terrorists, or bank runs?  No we wouldn't.  

How about on a smaller scale:  If you never concerned yourself with what others thought about you, your home, your job, clothing, quirks, whatever, and you were not concerned with theirs, what would your life be like?

I can hear JESUS now, "What does any of it have to do with you?  You follow ME!"

True Israel is right now.  Whom shall we fear?  If we are in eternity now, we are going to go on and on!  From strength to strength.  From one moment to the next.  All our needs are met in Christ Jesus. What does that mean?  It means you can do all things through Christ Jesus Who strengthens you.

Each person has crosses in their lives that they must bare.  And each cross looks different.  

The cross breaks the flesh man, but MAKES the spirit man!   2 Corinthians 4:
14Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. 

15For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.

16For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 

17For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 


18While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.


Embrace the pain!  Willingly let it do its work!

A woman who was also an artist living in the neighborhood where my Dad lived, told me once that he had saved her life.  "How so?" I asked.

She said, my Dad had told her to look for just one beautiful thing.  Just one thing that spoke to her, that brought her joy, peace and wonder.

She had gone down to a pier near the bay with a handgun, determined to end her life and drop in the water below.  She saw the moonlight shining on the water and briefly saw a dolphin surface.  The stars dancing in the dark sky.  As she looked and thought about it, she found more than one thing that was beautiful, that brought her joy, peace and wonder.

To be, means to not try any more.  You just are.  Your present situation, it just is what it is.  But what is it?  

Some people are never going to grow a new leg or come out of their wheel chair, or be free of children, or find a spouse or be healed of something.   But how can you rise above that?

Start by stopping trying to control everything.  Come out of her, and into HIS place of rest.

What is in this moment?

Is it our weaknesses?  Our failures? Our inability to overcome?  Our past nagging at the back door as if those moments still existed?  The losses (of loved ones, jobs, homes, community, ideals, dreams). Our future, striking fear into our hearts because it all looks so hopeless?

What is also present in this moment?

Personally name them, because they will be different for each reader.

(For me today, was the glorious sunshine and the contrast of green and orange colours against a crisp blue sky.  I had pleasure in seeing pumpkins everywhere.  I enjoyed listening to my daughter read and my son laugh and my husbands complimenting dinner.  I enjoyed the soft fur of our new kitty and listening to her constant purring.  I thought on a blogger who wrote one of the most profound posts I've read yet, because it was so raw and straight from the heart.)

Last week I had a couple days where I was just done.  D.O.N.E.   And through prayer and petition got over the 'done'.   Then today, was going nicely and I was rejoicing in the FATHER's creation by singing and satan reminded me of a moment in time in the past, when I lost my temper and was a first class loser.  I saw that immediately, yes, I was a loser that day. 

 And maybe no one's going to forget what a loser I was because of the negative impact I made.  And I am such a loser that I cannot even clean up my own stinking messes!  But I thought wait a minute, this is totally interrupting this moment.  And I knew the enemy was going to use my daughter to remind me of that moment and she did, right on cue!

Resist the enemy and he will flee.  I said to her, 'Yup that was a bad moment, but let's sing our song now.'   And we did.  And it was good.

I am not saying don't take responsibility and own up to sin or mistakes or short comings.  The Truth sets us free!  But don't give it more room than it deserves.  FATHER's grace is what enables us to move and be and continue on.

Remember you are NOT alone.  Sufferings are common unto man, despite all our efforts to do good and avoid evil...

Mother sings to dying daughter. (What was in this moment?  The beauty of singing? The presence of just 'being' with the one you love no matter what?  The super glue this couple will have because of this cross they bore together?  The cherished memories and thankfulness of having this child for such a time...)

("I'm loving you.")

We are in a war, always have been since birth.  It is multi-faceted and can be overwhelming.  Apart from the LORD, we can be no good thing and do no good thing.  We cannot rescue ourselves, we can only surrender...

Not by might, not by power, but by His Spirit, sayeth the LORD.  How then do we live?

1 Corinthians 13:13
And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.


Please read Ephesians 4

Peace,

The Rod of Fear

Fear =Confusion=Control

Our FATHER is not the god of confusion.

Confusion means 'to pour together'.  Con means against and fuse means 'to bring together'.

Order out of Chaos   

Come out of her MY people!

Little Bit of This and That

Alright folks, this next blog is just a little bit of basic encouragement.

Things are zooming around so quickly, so massively, it's hard to keep up!  

FATHER has called us to peace. 1 Corinthians 7:15  Watch for what/who is taking your peace. (Grace is given AT THE TIME of need, so worrying about anything (projecting into the future) is a waster of your health!)

Wise as serpents, gentle as doves.   Just because the world is zooming around in hysteria, doesn't mean you have to.  Breathe in, breathe out.  Sshhhh...

Communication is getting more complicated/complex.  Just my opinion.  I am not sure about my email, but it seems like folks are not getting my emails.  And I have noticed more and more, basic communication is challenging.   So I am being more careful about communications.

Satan is the prince and power of the air. (know your enemy)

Overclogged with information/constipation.  All our needs are met in Christ Jesus.   You will have what HE intends you to have. PERIOD.   HE is Just In Time.  JIT operation participants, walk in faith. It is 'super/natural'.   

Your Health.   Are there things you can do to prevent illness.  Sure. 

Proverbs 15:30 The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart: and a good report maketh the bones fat.  (Let the Word of GOD in through your eyes or listen to the Bible on CD)

Proverbs 16:24  Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Proverbs 27:9  Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.

Psalm 141:5  Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head...

Psalm 133  Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
2It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;
3As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.


Listen this good report on how a nurse to be, saved her family, works and faith, working together! AMEN!!!   There is hope and joy when we put our hope in the LORD!!  http://femmelounge.ng/how-one-young-woman-single-handedly-saved-three-relatives-from-ebola/


Commune/communication/ Com   means WITH.      The Bible verses above talk about taking council from the godly/those obedient to Christ.  A rebuke can save your life, your soul!  Pride can kill!

Fellowship can bring healing.

Okay, so for some time, maybe years, I take these things every day after I eat breakfast and maybe they help?    1 Super B complex, 2 garlic jells (stinky kind is better), 1 zinc, 1000 mlg of Vitamin C, an Iron pill (2-3 times a week), A Spiralina pill (2-3 times a week.)  And sometimes a B-12 pill 1 time a day later in afternoon.  I practice good hygiene.  Don't touch face out in public.  Wash hands.  Wash foods with warm/hot water, vinegar.  Dry tops of cans with 91% alcohol.   Drink lots of filtered water!!    And as much as I can, eat good foods (I realize this is really difficult given the gmo's, and prices).   

I try to add more veggies to our diet by adding them to pasta sauces (blend them up in the Ninja, add to sauce).  You can even make zuccini pasta (shred zuccini, saute with fresh garlic, add sauce and cheese.   You can make smoothies with apples, kale, ginger, cayenne pepper, bit of pineapple, apple cider vinegar (with the mother).    Get your blood circulating.   I am by far NO athlete.   Dealing with weight issues, but my heart is healthy, cholesteral great, BP great.   Gordon has weight issues too, but through the power of the LORD and vitamins and eating healthier, he can kick 16 hour days.  So we give all glory to GOD, despite our short commings.  Key is:  keep pressing on, don't give up!  Try and keep trying!

A friend of mine has taken the above vitamins I listed plus Goldenseal and Echnacea.  Both of those make me sick for some reason, so I don't take them.  Neither of us has been sick in years.

Hebrews 4:12   For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.    AMEN!!

Many years ago, I felt sick.   I listened for the Holy Spirit and was directed to take two aspirin and a teaspoon of olive oil in some water.  

I have suffered from migraines.   Not sure if it is metabolic (like not eating soon enough) or hormonal or combination platter.   So I am aiming to carry some coconut water and a protein bar in my purse, in case I get too busy and forget to eat.    Hydration is a big thing.  Keep drinking water!

Again, I am NO health guru.  And if I am able in any way, I give glory to JESUS for those gifts.

I've recently met some folks who really limit the sugar (almost to no white sugar products at all). They are thin and healthy.  Is it proof? I don't know.  Our bodies are really complex.   One might be thin, yet needs glasses at 20 or younger...so what's up with that?   I always fall back on 'the flesh counts for nothing, it is the Spirit that gives life.'   We are all going to die someday.  Do your best, GOD takes care of it ALL.

Try and unplug from the net, tv, ect...Get in the Word/Bible.  Look for the LORD all around you!  Be prepared for the opportunities.

Pray!  Sing praise songs!   Shake things up--in a rut?  Go for a walk, have a marathon prayer, praise on your day off.  Grab your spouse, child, friend, parent and pray over them, bless them, hug them and pour some love into them.  Make a thankful list.  You will discover you have MUCH to be thankful for.   Don't have anyone to grab and pray over, cherish that alone time with FATHER and know you are never alone.  FATHER does not leave us orphans!   Want peace?  Do only what FATHER is leading you to do.  A sense of obligation or frustration could be a litmus test of your flesh/soul wantings.    

(I'd like to live on a thousand acres on some mountain, with a boat load of preps and be super lady, but that is FAR from my reality! LOL!!  I live in an apartment with my family, a neurotic dog, a new kitten whose love tank is never filled.  Lots of neighbors from all walks of life.  We have two vehicles that we've had for so long, we may have to pull a Fred Flintstone and use our feet to get em down the road.  The only thing I seem to be able to grow on our porch is weeds (no not pot).)
  

GOD IS IN CONTROL!  

Peace,
Deirdre

Famine in the Land part 2 The Pride That Kills

As stated in the earlier post, there is a spiritual famine in the land.  

It is my understanding that as Spirit-filled believers we are to call (like John the Baptist), people to turn their hearts to the LORD (before HE comes!)

Coupled with this calling to turn to the LORD, is the urge that mankind's hearts be turned toward each other.
<b>Spiritual Famine</b>

(Luke 1:17  And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.)

In John 6, the LORD tests the hearts of HIS disciples asking them about feeding the people that were with them.

And in 1 Kings 17:9 GOD says to Elijah,
"Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee."

It's easy to over spiritualize our present physical realities.  They indeed are spiritual, but they are physical too and cannot be ignored.  Even King Jesus did not ignore the physical needs of others.

<b>Elijah</b>_and_the_<b>Widow</b>_1038-9

What a wonderful picture of faith in action.   GOD tells Elijah that HE has commanded a widow woman there to sustain (feed) him.   When Elijah arrives, she doesn't just give him what he wants, she has to know that 'this is the man' that GOD would send her.

(1 Kings 17 The Widow of Zarephath
8And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, 9Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee. 10So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink. 11And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand.12And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die. 13And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son. 14For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth. 15And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days. 16And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah. )


Her heart was turned to the LORD and Elijah's heart was turned to her heart.  Though a woman of faith, he had to have had empathy about the great physical struggles she had endured!


We have all fallen short of the glory of GOD and there are times when bad things come upon us that we immediately sense perhaps GOD is angry with us and wants to punish us. In Romans 8 we learn that ALL things are working together and that eventually (because we may not understand at first) bring glory to the FATHER.

1 Kings 17
17And it came to pass after these things, that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his sickness was so sore, that there was no breath left in him. 18And she said unto Elijah, What have I to do with thee, O thou man of God? art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance, and to slay my son?19And he said unto her, Give me thy son. And he took him out of her bosom, and carried him up into a loft, where he abode, and laid him upon his own bed. 20And he cried unto the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, hast thou also brought evil upon the widow with whom I sojourn, by slaying her son? 21And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, I pray thee, let this child's soul come into him again. 22And the LORD heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived. 23And Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into the house, and delivered him unto his mother: and Elijah said, See, thy son liveth. 24And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in thy mouth is truth.

This is a gorgeous picture of the great promises of GOD.  

And sometimes, these promises are proven when we go through various trials in life.

Notice, Elijah didn't rebuke the woman when she complained through her grief.  He had COMPASSION on her physical issue--the great love for her child and he brought that before the LORD.

<b>elijah-widow</b>

"Unto us a Son is given."   Let's think about the widow woman here.   Not only is this son of hers precious to her; perhaps his youth gives her hope for the future?  Children are often so resilient, even in times of great trouble.

The widow may have also been thinking about her future:  who would take care of her in her old age?

The picture above and the Scripture gives us great encouragement as it shows a picture of our FATHER.  Elijah is like the FATHER: HE has compassion on our humanity.  HE also knows we need the Son.  The widow woman is like the Church.   More than a physical husband, she needs a Spiritual Husband.  Someone Who will be with her in her time of great weakness.

Obviously there is a lot of pride in our world. Our technological advancements, our great military complexes, our ability to tinker with genetics and change natural things to unnatural things gives us all great pride.


While some, through money, better foods and plastic surgeries are able to live longer, fuller lives, others starve to death in more ways than one.


Families are starving to death (spiritually, emotionally, mentally, physically).

We pour a lot of time, effort and ability into our work, personal goals and even 'ministries', all the while our families are starving for attentions.

It's a land of orphans!

GOD says HE places the lonely in families!  Psalm 68:6

Truth does two things: It either turns people away from GOD because their pride is enormous and there is no room for GOD (which really translates, no room for relationship/intimacy).  Or it turns people to humility, then understanding, then fulfillment.

Many of you are 'prepping': preparing spiritually, physically, emotionally etc... 

I wonder if anyone has thought that all this preparation might be for something greater than expected?

There are those who will come into the Kingdom of GOD at the last minute.   

In Matthew 20, we see that there are those who were angry that those who came at the last received the same 'reward' as those who came at the beginning.

We also see in the parable of the prodigal son that the older brother was angry with the father for celebrating the younger brothers return.

Is this the heart of the FATHER, to reject those that come in at the last minute?

We need to repent of our pride!  Our families are not our props that make us look good or a certain way.  They are precious treasures that FATHER has given us.


There are countless many who are being destroyed for lack of knowledge.

Our relationship with GOD is all about relationship, compassion, understanding, forgiveness, acknowledgement of wrongs, learning, growing, being!

If Truth doesn't speak to a person, will Love and Patience?


My prayer for HIS people, is that they don't get overwhelmed by the many things that are going on in this world, but that they would be overwhelmed by HIS LOVE and extend that love to a starving world.

I testify that it was love that brought me to Christ.   People need to know that GOD does love them and that through an acceptance of HIS truth, they can, through faith, endure this world till the end.


GOD will use the physical things to speak to people.  Do not fear, keep loving.  Prep as if you are prepping for that one soul that will be saved!  Prep for others, not ourselves, because all our needs are already met in Christ Jesus!  We are the people of Hope!

The Land of Famine

A few years ago, I had an intense dream/vision early one morning.  (My Dad had passed away some months before).   I saw my Dad sitting with other elderly men: all had beards like my Dad, and I perceived them to be 'elders', not just old men, but spiritually older.  They were in some kind of large room and it seemed like a prayer room.  There was a sadness there, yet a peace...Maybe I should say, more like a sobriety.

They were singing something that was familiar to me from my childhood, but the music was intense!  It was so other-worldly beautiful, that I almost couldn't take it!

I awoke with tears coming out of my eyes and felt rather breathless.  Not because I saw my Dad, but because of the absolute authoritative seriousness that was displayed in the prayer song.

(I have come to understand in my walk with the LORD how FATHERLY GOD Is.  Growing up, I did not argue with my Dad.  If I were to walk in a room and ask him something and he said, 'sshh' because he was working on something or reading something, none of us dared, say 'but Dad!' or even try to talk.  You waited!  Mark my words, my Dad was not a tyrant at all.  He was very loving!  He just commanded a kind of respect that I haven't seen since!)

Over the last few days, the main idea of this song has been giving me great pause as I beseech the LORD on a number of matters.   I waiver between begging like the widowed woman to the judge, and ending with 'the LORD's will be done'.  

Now without completely scaring the wits out of the readers, please note I have NOT gone off the deep end or any other idea that might pop into your head as you continue to read.  (I find in America, there is a plastic-ness to our entertainment and in particular our 'spiritual music', if you will--too much phony jovial crap-for lack of a better word.)  Where is the debasement?  Where is the spiritual sack cloth?  

We are in the Land of Famine.  As the Holy Spirit steps out of the way, because man would rather the flesh than the holiness of HIS presence, the Spiritual famine commences.  Does the LORD come near to the prideful?  Will HE share HIS throne with another?  A stealth, powerful, graceful FATHER figure like none other, is our GOD ALMIGHTY!  HE doesn't even glance at whores!  HE Being pure, is looking for purity in HIS bride.
The intimacy of HIS treasures, HE will not share with those that do not treasure HIM.

Isaiah 5
The Song of the Vineyard
1Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My well beloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:

2And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.

3And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard.

4What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?

5And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down:

6And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.

7For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.

(((Judgement starts with the house of GOD first!!)))

Woes to the Wicked
8Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!

(((What more can be added to the Christian's life?  All our needs are met in Christ Jesus!  We need to be STRIPPED of the things of this world, so that we can hear the LORD and enter into the intimacy of HIS Spiritual treasures.)))

9In mine ears said the LORD of hosts, Of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant.

(((Many, many people will be laid bare, stripped of the precious Holy Spirit, as there is no room for HIM in their lives.
"Behold I stand at the door and knock."  FATHER will never force Himself on anyone.  The false Christian who swears they do everything 'in HIS name', have no fear of The Great Master, leaving their house, because it is filled with demons!)))

The following song is none other than The Kyrie Eleison.   I will copy the prayer and then you may, if lead, listen to the song.

[Lord, King and Father unbegotten, True Essence of the GOD head, have mercy on us. 
Lord, Fount of light and Creator of all things, have mercy on us. 
Lord, Thou who hast signed us with the seal of Thine image, have mercy on us. 
Christ, True GOD and True Man, have mercy on us. 
Christ, Rising Sun, through whom are all things, have mercy on us. 
Christ, Perfection of Wisdom, have mercy on us. 
Lord, vivifying Spirit and power of life, have mercy on us. 
Lord, Breath of the Father and the Son, in Whom are all things, have mercy on us. 
Lord, Purger of sin and Almoner of grace, we beseech Thee abandon us not because of our Sins, O Consoler of the sorrowing soul, have mercy on us.]

Christians all over the world are coming into a purging, whether it be direct enemies from without or within.

I read a "prophetic" word on a popular 'American' website about the rapture happening any moment now, and I was grieved in my spirit.  How many will perish in their spirits when the rapture does not come, instead, realities will crash with false theology in the valley of decision.  How many will turn from the faith, because their ideas were false? Will they continue to eat the GMO version of the Bible, the false prophets and then the delicious words of the antichrist?

Its a Land of Famine and only one prayer seems necessary.





A little end note here: Just trying to post this blog, there have been many technical problems.  And yet, while writing this, my little girl sings away, "Trust and Obey for there's no other way, to be happy in JESUS, than to trust and obey."

Her name is Katey.  Katey mean's pure.  I believe the LORD is calling HIS people to be pure:  pure in spirit and in faith and in hope.  

LORD have mercy on us.
