A Word for HIS People

Hey folks!  I was going to send this to a sister, and as I was typing, sensed to give it to the Body of Christ.

I think it relates to the Patriots playing this SB and some encouragement for FATHER's people.

Testimony

Our son Joshua wanted to play for a basketball team here in town called the Patriots.  He made the team, but right before practice started, he fractured his foot.  Six weeks, compressed therapy was ordered.

Well, that blew his chances to play for the Patriots this year.  Because the YMCA starts their practice in December, Joshua signed up to play with them as he would be released from his rest.

Joshua has played rec ball in all the places we've lived.  For the last three years with the Y, he has been put on a 'losing team'.  

What is interesting to note is that while some of the long time coaches acknowledge how well Joshua plays, they never get him on their teams for whatever reason (still haven't figured it out, save for what the LORD may be speaking here.)

So this year, though slightly disappointed about not making the Patriots AND fracturing his foot, he finds himself on another 'losing team'.  Two of the players have never played basketball EVER!

Here's the kicker.  My Joshua is a pretty neat young man.  He takes things in stride.  Doesn't get 'freaked' out when things don't go his way.  And I think he looks at things 'panoramically'.

So even though he finds himself again on a 'losing team', he looks at it as a time to give back and encourage others.

Last year, there was a player whose parents were forcing him to play.  He was not good at all and you could just feel the struggle this young man was having!  Josh made sure he passed the ball off to this guy enough times for him to have a chance to score.   One game, this guy scores a three pointer, 'swoosh'!  The crowd went crazy and you could tell this was the very thing the guy needed!

This year, I've noticed some neat things about Joshua's team.  Joshua's jersey number is 7.  They lost their first game badly.  The last two games, coach decided to have them practice a couple hours before their game so they were warmed up.  They won both.

And boy what games they were!  Everyone played so well and they are very much a team!  I am not a big sports fan, but just watching the team work and sportsmanship is pleasurable!

I talked with the coach last week.  He's a young man about 23, named Jordan.  He told me Joshua was the most humble guy he's met.  He said Joshua makes sure all his team members know they are important and that it takes all of them to make the game happen.  He said, everyone knows that it takes Joshua to 'make' their team, but that Josh doesn't show any pride at all.

Yesterday, they played a tough team.  They were neck to neck sometimes.  I noticed that as the score started to rise up from the other team, that Josh deliberately 'made some points' for his team.  

The folks in the other bleachers were unruly, constantly yelling 'miss' or clanging the bleachers.


I took notice that EVERY time Joshua or his team members had to make a free throw, the unruly folks were really nasty.  EVERY time they threw, they made a basket!!  Most of the time the other team did a free throw, they missed!

Towards the end of the game, a couple guys from the other team wanted to pick a fight!  It was really nasty, but none the less, our guys won 48-43.

Every season, teams get to pick their own name.  This year the guys picked the name The Dream Team.  

As I think on this, I think it's kindof sweet.  Most of these guys couldn't make it on their school teams (for all sorts of reasons; too short, not enough experience, politics...), some have never played before ("virgins", or "babies".)  Joshua was 'bruised' and 'set low' and 'placed with the lowly', yet all I am seeing is 'humility before honor'.

Many of GOD's people are lowly.  Many of HIS people have dreamed many dreams; some terrific, some sweet.  

We are to exercise humility!  And we are to exercise strength.  This Dream Team prepares before they 'get in the game'.

We are on KING YAHSHUA'S team! HE was humbled and showed us the way...through humility.

When we are weak, HE IS strong.  Many don't see.  Many assume all kinds of things about our KING.

As with my Joshua, our YAHSHUA has won the whole game and because of HIM,  HE has set in place a royal priesthood, a holy nation, to go forth and be ministers of righteousness and reconciliation.

Many are deaf and blind.  Many are sick.  Many are young and inexperienced.  

Pray for the FATHER's heart on these things.

--------------------------------------------
Many of you know that when I put posts up, I am in constant prayer.  This blog is NEVER about me.  I've been kind of tearing up, while writing this, just thinking about our LORD.   

Yesterday after the game, we went out to eat lunch. The restaurant we went to had just one other small family in it.  There was no music playing; it was very peaceful and quiet.  

We ate our pizza and talked about the game and a bunch of other things.  Later, Joshua hugged us both and took off to spend some time with his friend.  

As we drove home, I almost felt guilty for having such warm feelings of joy; that my sons team won, that he is joyful and thankful and a pleasure to live with.  He is a believer and stays in the Word.  He has been a witness to his siblings and an encourager, even though he is younger.

As I was closing out this post, I prayed and asked FATHER, 'is there anything else YOU want in this post?'  I heard Isaiah 29:4.   Would you give the KING OF KINGS and LORD of LORDS a shout and praise of glory that HE may get all the praise and honor for all HE has done?!  I pray for that Rest Today that our FATHER has promised HIS people, to wash over the remnant.  Wow!  I am just wowed!

Isaiah 29:4

And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.

Amos

This morning (1/29) I had a strange dream.  It was like a series of events.  Many times if I have a dream, I have to pray and seek FATHER to make sure if it is from HIM or not.

The last couple days, I have just had a really heavy heart and am sure it is this:

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Romans 8:26

The dream started out with me sky diving. (Not something I would do!)  I have no fear and I land safely in this torn up city.  It looks like something from a movie; buildings disheveled, plants growing around everything and a sense of devastation and desolation, yet, because of the green foliage, a sense of hope.

The next scene I am aware that there are young lions around.  They try and come after me, because they are hungry.  They are small, so I am able to kick at them and sometimes outrun them.

The next scene is I am in a store room.  I am able to shut the door on the lions and get some rest.  I find a low cupboard in the store and think that when I open it I will find food.  I do.  As I open the cupboard a dead man rolls out of it along with several packages of food stuffs.  

I open one of the packages and while there is some dried food (like cereal or crackers), out come millions of these little black bugs.  (They were not ants, nor worms, but they were like small dots and had an appetite like termites.)  As soon as they came out of the box, they immediately started to devour the dead man.  End dream.

When I woke up, I started to pray and sensed before I did anything, to get into prayer and the Word.  (I sensed the dream was of great poverty coming and not just material/or food wise, but of the Spirit!)

I opened up my Bible right to Amos.  I started reading and prayed and sensed I was to read the whole book.

The end of verse 1 chapter 1 caught my attention.
'...and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel, two years before the earthquake.'

I have made it known in this blog of a great earthquake coming to America.  I sensed this to be yet another confirmation.

In my Bible at the bottom, it states that 'apparently there must have been a severe earthquake because not only is it mentioned in Amos 1, but also in Zechariah 14:5, to serve as a reminder of GOD's great power in nature and HIS judgement.' 

There is some mystery twice speak (saying something more than once): "for three transgressions of xxx and for four"  HE will send fire.

In chapter two, what really stood out to me was the WEIGHT of the sin of Israel.  

Amos 2:13  Behold, I am pressed under you, as a cart is pressed that is full of sheaves.

Now that is something to consider!  When we think of GOD as our FATHER, Who loves us and wants relationship with us and HE states something like that, it brings everything JESUS says in the New Testament into view.

I know as a parent of rebellious children, that it weighs my heart down, to know they are rejecting Truth: the Truth I love and know!  Why choose sin, when you can choose the blessings of the LORD?

Chapter two ends with the fact that no one is going to escape HIS judgement!

The lions crying out in chapter four also caught my attention.  The question asked is, "Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing? Amos 3:4

The answer is no.  A lion will not roar unless there is prey to be had, but what GOD says in chapter three is that HE is blowing the trumpet, HE's letting HIS people know and judgement will happen.

Verse 12--there will be a remnant, but listen to the verse.  'Thus saith the LORD; As the shepherd taketh out of the mouth of the lion two legs, or a piece of an ear, so shall the children of Israel be taken out that dwell in Samaria in the corner of a bed, and in Damascus in a couch.'

As in my dream, the young lions were after me in a desolate place, but they did not have me, for I have a Shepherd Who has already saved me.

Palmer Worms Royalty Free Stock Image - Image: 334036 Palmer Worm
""(Heb. gazam). The English word may denote either a caterpillar (asrendered by the LXX.), which wanders 
like a palmer or pilgrim, or which travels like pilgrims 
in bands (Joel 1:4; 2:25), the wingless locusts, or the  migratory locust in its larva state.""

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Palmer-worm

Amos 4:9  I have smitten you with blasting and mildew: when your gardens and your vineyards and your fig trees and your olive trees increased, the palmerworm devoured them: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.


These 'bugs' I saw in my dream were black and small and rather round...could they have been the 'palmer worm' in its larvae stage and yet powerful enough to go into this man and eat away at him?  Amos mentions young lions and old lions. Perhaps young lions refers to the early stages of judgement and old lions-the matured stage of judgment?

Three times in chapter five, GOD says, "Seek HIM" and "seek good".


How does any of this apply to GOD's remnant today?

In chapter six, verse one we are told,"Woe to them that are at ease in Zion..."

We have to fight the good fight of faith!  Run with perseverance!

GOD will take a nobody like Amos to speak to 
the church' (Those who profess Christ.) and to those who are truly HIS.  (Or a bunch of nobodies---like the remnant to preach the true gospel, like Noah preached, until the ark door was shut!)

In chapter eight we are reminded of the true famine, and that is a famine of GOD's words!

Is the great devastation coming on the world Spiritual or physical?  (Yes, we see both, but what is the greater?)

Conclusion

I think that the reading of the book of Amos this morning, confirms the dream.

We know that the Bible is layered and we know in part.  

Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy, but! JESUS said on the cross, 'It is finished'.  What truly keeps us from overcoming and having victory?  Is it something, a small part, that is not receiving a love of The Truth?

Are the sayings in Amos, given to a born again believer to make one afraid of judgement and perishing?  I don't believe so.


2 Timothy 3: 16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.


FATHER's judgement's are not without great promises of revival.


Amos 9: 11In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:

12That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this.

13Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.

14And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.

15And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.

The green foliage I saw in the dream, I believe is the sign of hope.  

FATHER IS the perfect judge.  I do believe from what HE has given me in the past and now, that judgment is coming on America.  She is supposed to be a Christian nation, but she is a whore-tool for Israel and very much unrepentant! And when I say Israel, I mean the physical land and its Synagogue of satan.

I believe America is part of this prophetic layering that is going on.  She is the beginning of the domino affect.  The whole world lies in the power of the evil one, so that makes it all Babylon (in my estimation).  

We see these 'types' of Babylon in America, Israel, Washington DC, the Vatican....

For the lost, this world is their demise, for the believer, it is our boot camp and war zone.  We will fight till the end!

I want to leave you with Psalm 29:2 and Psalm 62 

'Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.'

We are to be holy as HE IS holy.  Worship is obedience.  And obedience is surrender.

While judgement comes upon a world not surrendered to Christ and while it yet, rains on the righteous and unrighteous, meaning, we are all going to 'feel it', (the consequences of sin), praise GOD HE sent HIS Son JESUS that whoever believes on HIS name shall be saved!

What has been, what is now, and what is to come by way of judgement, there is NO way out!  You must be surrendered to the LORD, so that whether you physically die or endure till the end...it is no matter, because it is the Spirit that gives Life!


Amos

I was lead to read all of Amos this morning.  If you can, please read it.  I will be posting more about this later, today when I have time.

John 15

13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 

14Ye are MY friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. 

15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of MY Father I have made known unto you.

16Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, HE may give it you.

17These things I command you, that ye love one another.

Shmita Revelation from Sandy

""Hey, D. I had already gone to bed, after reading Bible and saying prayers. For some reason this hit me like a ton of bricks. I wasn't even thinking about Shmita or anything related. It just hit me, the LORD'S answer for the Shmita question... it's JESUS. HE fulfilled the law. It is all summed up in the LORD'S prayer:

Matthew 6:9-13King James Version (KJV)

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.(this is our Shmita)
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Just had to get up and share that! PTL!! ~Sandy"""
_____________________________

AMEN!  And thank you Sandy for sharing that!
-----------------
Come out of 'her' and get 'her' out of you!  False preachers like Cahn (con), complicate the Bible and its message.

It is said that the illuminati feel they have to somehow share their plans before carrying them out and do so via media.  They are trying to be a mediator between god and man.

Satan aims to replicate GOD ALMIGHTY.

 Amos 3:7 Surely the LORD GOD will do nothing, but HE revealeth HIS secret unto HIS servants the prophets.  

The wheat and the tares...so much alike, but there is one thing that separate the two...

Another One from My Journal (A few thoughts and something I copied)

By Cugone (June 13, 2007 at 10:50 am) · Filed under Uncategorized


Could the coming of KING YAHSHUA create the ultimate Electro Magnetic Pulse and set fire to the world?

(from Wikipedia--The abrupt pulse of electromagnetic radiation usually results from certain types of high energy explosions, especially a
nuclear explosion, or from a suddenly fluctuating magnetic field.) 


Remember from the study of lightening that there is a negative charge within the CLOUD and a positive charge on the ground and when they touch IN THE AIR, there is an explosion of sound/light. (Also if there is around 70,000 degrees of heat from one bolt of lightening, times all the believers in the world, that would seem like enough to set the world on fire! 

Luke 17:24 "For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day." 

Isaiah 25:7,8 On this mountain He will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces; He will remove the disgrace of his people from all the earth. The LORD has spoken!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preeminence” means having the first, highest, chief, and best place in a position of ascendancy over everything else. In military terms, having preeminence means being able to go anywhere, and do anything, without opposition. It is overwhelming, unrestricted, absolute authority and power.

Though everyone seeks preeminence, only one Person is worthy of it, and only He can be trusted with it. Scripture reveals that God intends for Jesus Christ to have that kind of unrestricted authority and power in a position of spiritual ascendancy over everything else: “That in all things He should have the preeminence” (Col. 1:18).

Preeminence is revealed in some of the titles of Christ. He is not just one king among many kings, but He is “King of Kings.” He is not merely one lord among many lords, but He is “Lord of Lords.” He is not just one path to God among so many other paths of equal significance and relevance: but Jesus is THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life, and He declares without apology that “no one comes to the Father except by Me” (Jn. 14:6). Many people today consider that exclusivity to be intolerant and closed-minded. Scripture calls it Christ having the preeminence.

Preeminence is connected with centrality. The very act of making something central is to give it a preeminent position. The sun occupies the preeminent place in our solar system (the center) and everything else orbits around it. Similarly, Christ occupies the central place in the great Plan and Purpose of God. The center is strategically important because there can only be one center. For example, the whole Temple was holy; yet in its center was a special place called the Holy of Holies. This has the same meaning as King of Kings and Lord of Lords; compared to the other “holies,” the Holy of Holies is the most holy of all, occupying a central place of preeminence. Such is the position of Christ in the mind, heart, will and purpose of God.

If we would learn this basic lesson of preeminence it would greatly simplify our Christian walk. Many people are frustrated from trying unsuccessfully to get God to conform to their own idea of how life should be. They want Love without Obedience; Blessing without Breaking; Gifts without Fruit; Scripture Promises without Scripture Commands; Salvation without Discipleship; a Crown without a Cross. According to Jesus, these people are not worthy of Him. He rejects them as disciples. Meanwhile, Churchianity accepts them with open arms, where “in vain they do worship” (Mt. 15:9).    ((borrowed from www.schoolofChrist.org))))

June 20th 2012 I wanted to share a quick dream I had this morning. Gordon and I were in a strange house with our kids and he was reading the newspaper.

 There was a picture of a buzzard. He asks me, "do you know what kind of bird this is?" I said, "I don't know, a buzzard?". He says, "Yes, it is. The buzzards are coming!"

Buzzards and vultures are considered the same. It looked like the ones that are black with a red head. We all know what buzzards do (eat dead flesh)

----------------------------------------------------------------------

The Spirit and the Bride say COME!   And JESUS taught us to pray, "Our FATHER Who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name!  Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it IS in heaven!

As we get closer and closer to that DAY (Zechariah 13, 14), many wild and strange things will be happening.  Stay focused.  Keep your eyes on the prize!  Pray without ceasing!  Pray for the brethren!

It Is For Freedom Christ Has Set Us Free!

2 Peter 2  17These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.   ((False teachers))

18For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. 

19While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of WHOM a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.


John 8:34  Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

Galatians 5
Freedom in Christ
1Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

2Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. 

3For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. 

4Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

 5For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. 

6For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

7Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? 

8This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.

9A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. 

10I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be. 

11And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased. 

12I would they were even cut off which trouble you.

13For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 

14For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 

15But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

Living by the Spirit

16This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 

17For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

 18But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

19Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 

20Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 

21Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 

22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 

23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 

24And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.


25If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 

26Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

Psalm 24
1{A Psalm of David.} The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

2For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

3Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

4He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

5He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

6This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

7Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

9Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.


FATHER please bless and encourage YOUR people today.  Please help them in every way.  The Spirit and the Bride say 'Come! Come quickly King JESUS!'  Amen
