Strategy to Overcome the devices of the serpent.

 

 

We are in a very important time frame right at the beginning of a new year (5779) full of promises of new birthings, fulness and fruitfulness.

We need to be watchful and alert, for the enemy is sly and devious in his ways and will try to find openings in our hedge to creep in on areas where we are vulnerable (1 Peter 5:8) in order to steal kill and destroy, but also to distract.  Remember, this is the other side of the letter “Tet” in the picture of the twisted serpent in the number 9.

As we dwell in His Presence, we find our shelter and protection under the wings of the Most High where no devil can touch us (Psalm 91).

This is not a place where we can “in” and “out”, but a place to abide in continuously.

Let us ask the Lord to let His light shine on places where we are vulnerable so that we can take our stand in those areas. We are to be clothed in light to withstand the enemy, putting our trust in the Lord of hosts! He is our victory.

At the same time, we are praying for discernment to identify our enemy and not be caught by his deception.

Remember that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood.

I recently woke up from in dream in which I clearly received insight into four strategies by which the Python Spirit will try to get a grip on you.

  1. Make contact by catching you by surprise – causing you to lose focus and balance.
  2. Charming, bewitching, luring you to come along with his plans – drawing on your emotions, playing on your feelings.
  3. Religious flattery with false authority.
  4. Putting subtle pressure on you to comply – even with a religious cloak – show of godliness – making a demand on your being a Christian to get his way.

Many are feeling overwhelmed by the demands of life, having too much on your plate, sudden intimidations of the enemy that cause fear, stress, etc.  His tactic is to attack on many fronts, causing pile-ups to make you feel as if the life is being sucked out of you.
This is clearly the attack of the Python spirit.

See with New Perspective from a Place of Worship: 
*Your true identity and your future which He has planned for you.
*Leave situations that need desperate intervention of the Lord into His hands – trusting Him fully to invade those areas like relationships with His glory.
* Discerning the enemy’s strategies by exercising your spiritual senses, taking authority over it.  Whenever you give in to pressure by reacting to it, you empower it to rule over you. 

I was worshiping the Lord in the beauty of Holiness and suddenly became so aware of His faithfulness to bring His promises to pass in your lives.
While focusing on His faithfulness, I suddenly realized that His Promises are actually His desires for our lives – which are so much better than our own ideas of how things should be.
We often want to figure out solutions for ourselves – taking
things into our own hands, but because that is opposite to
God’s counsel, it causes us to get stressed and overwhelmed.

Instead: Here are five keys to overcome:

  1. Focus back in worship on His FAITHFULNESS to

1. Bring His glorious promises to pass in our lives                                                                 2. Order our steps aright.                                                                                                                  3. To make the crooked places straight, bring the mountains down and fill    up the low places                                                                                                                                          4. To provide in all our needs                                                                                                            5. To bring us into the fulness of our inheritance in Christ                             SHORTLY TO BLESS US WITH EVERY GOOD THING!                                                That is who He is – only having the best in store for us.

  1. TRUST and DEPENDENCE!

Release your anxieties, fears, concerns, worries and put your TRUST in HIS FAITHFULNESS.

  1. NOW SING YOUR PRAISES in tongues and in your own language – OF ADORATION TO HIM BEING A LOVING FAITHFUL FATHER.

Praise Him for His mercy and lovingkindness that puts the enemy to flight! (2 Chron.20:22)
Psalm 149: With the high praises of God in your mouth and the two-edged sword in your hand you will bind the enemy’s kings with chains and his princes with iron fetters.

          D. EXPECT God’s goodness and grace to give you victory and blessings beyond your wildest imagination in every area of your life – because of His faithfulness!

E.  PUT ON THE ARMOR OF LIGHT and get your SWORD sharpened!

Ephesians 6:10-13 (KJV)
10” Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

In view of this Scripture, guard your heart to not start judging people or pointing the finger, or getting offended! Your fight is against the devil and his forces!  But rest assured, Jesus has already won the victory.  You just have to take authority over the enemy and not be moved by his schemes to invade your mind and shake you emotionally.

As we ask the Lord to protect us, He will show us the strategies of the enemy in advance – even in our dreams, so that we are forewarned and forearmed!

Bless the Name of the Lord who is mighty to save and protect!  Hallelujah!

Blessings of Victory and emotional freedom

POSITIONING FOR THE HEBRAIC YEAR 5779

As we are speeding forth to the Hebraic New Year 5779, starting on September 9th (09/09/2018) at sundown, there is a load of prophetic significance to be understood in order to tap into all the hidden treasures of God’s wisdom.

“And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do”

(I Chronicles 12:32).

From 2010 to 2019 (the year’s 5770 to 5779) is focused on the significance of the last two digits “70”.  All these ”70’s” through this decade signify the Hebrew word “AYIN.” 

   “Ayin” signifies an eye…or insight or seeing or perceiving with God’s perspective. It is a word for God’s revelation by the Spirit of wisdom and understanding to “see”. Some writers describe it as “fountain”…as in a fountain of wisdom.

We will also look into the symbolic meaning of the number 9 and the Hebrew Word Talet.

It is a most exciting time to tap into the way God sees. No wonder that the “seer”-anointing is increasing – especially in those that are seeking the Lord’s perspective.

In the process our minds have to be renewed from darkness to light – to focus on the Lord to have the mind of Christ by what He reveals in the secret place of intimacy.

 In the following 21 days until Rosh Hosanna (Hebraic New Year), we are going to focus on the renewal of our minds to access that which God has laid up for us in the realm of prophetic revelation.

You will be positioned and strengthened to:

  • Understand the significance of the Hebrew Year 5779 and to take action accordingly
  • Be renewed in the spirit of your mind by a new way of seeing from God’s perspective
  • See with enlightened eyes of understanding
  • Have all your senses extended into the supernatural
  • Get divine revelation, insight, wisdom and understanding to apply to every situation
  • Increase in Prophetic flow
  • Take authority over the enemy when you see the snake in the grass
  • Grow in the fruit of the Spirit
  • Grow in the Gifts of the Spirit
  • Grow in the Character of Christ – into maturity to reign with Him in the authority of the Spirit and the Word
  • Saying “Amen” to God’s destiny for your life as you receive understanding of it.

GOD IS SAYING, “RESTORE!”

Last time I spoke to you about perseverance of faith, knowing that God works behind the scenes.

I was in worship recently when the Word “Restore” came so strongly in my spirit.

Restore synonyms: reinstate, bring back, reinstitute, reimpose, reinstall, reestablish.

RESTORE!  From the inside out!

God wants to restore Kingdom in you: righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost!

Test yourself on this: Am I walking in the fulness of each aspect of the Kingdom?

How does restoration happen? When our faith connects to the Rhema Word of the Lord in worship. Then we hand over everything into His mighty Hand of power, putting our trust completely in Him to restore everything in our lives that was stolen and destroyed, calling it forth and rejoicing in it!

I started looking up the Word in Scriptures and it became a victory shout!

Joel 2: 25-26   And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.

This scripture talks about the destruction of the enemy, but also of the abundant provision of the Lord (John 10:10):

Restoration of hearts, of brokenness, of disappointments and woundedness.

Restoration to God as your loving Father, Jesus as your high priest, Holy Spirit as your guide, Teacher, Comforter.

Restoration of Vision and purpose and destiny.

God will restore injustices as the righteous Judge.  His throne is built on righteousness and justice.

WHATSOEVER has been lost or stolen from you by the enemy – be it your possessions, opportunities, relationships, or anything else, God is the One who restores when we put our trust in Him!

Be restored in your true identity and authority in Christ.

Maybe you have missed it somewhere, made the wrong decision and things didn’t work out. Stop blaming yourself or others!  Ask God to forgive you, forgive others and most of all, forgive yourself! Be restored in your true identity.

I have ministered to three people in two days on the topic of being mad at themselves for having made wrong choices, feeling guilty and breaking themselves down in self-accusation.   Rejecting yourself, makes you your own worst enemy!  This will also affect your health! In two of these instances there were skin issues.

Come back to the Lord and receive His forgiveness through repentance.  Then forgive yourself and be restored in the liberty of the Spirit.

God is restoring your soul (wounds) of abandanment and your health.

Jeremiah 30:17 – For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, [saying], This [is] Zion, whom no man seeketh after.

Restoration of the joy of your salvation.

After having committed adultery and murder, King David prayed:

Psalms 51:12 – Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me [with thy] free spirit.

Shame and confusion will be restored with double recompense:

Isaiah 61:7 – For your shame [ye shall have] double; and [for] confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.

Zech.9:11-12: DOUBLE RESTORATION!

As for you, because of the blood of My covenant, I will release your prisoners from the waterless pit. Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope; even today I declare that I will restore to you double.

Lean into the provision of Calvary!

Grace upon grace and strength upon strength in the double!

OPEN THE DOUBLE DOORS, LORD – IN JESUS’ NAME!

1 Cor.2:9: What the eye has not seen, the ear has not heard and has not come up in the mind of men, God has prepared for those who love Him.

The good news is that God not only wants to restore what was stolen from us but bless us with double as in the case of Job.

God told David at Ziklag:  Go and recover all!

Get strengthened in your faith by praying in tongues and access this promise of restoration!

Healing, recompense, restoration is yours as you believe the Word of the Lord!

God want to restore your soul:   beauty for ashes, oil of joy for morning, garments of praise for a spirit of heaviness.

God wants to restore your waste places as you come into His Presence – being transformed through light and truth

He will restore your mind – to know your true identity and authority in Christ!

Grab hold of this Word, Restore, and speak it into every area of your life for God’s glory as you worship the Lord in His glory!

Blessings

GOD IS WORKING BEHIND THE SCENES!

I was having supper with a friend, praying inbetween for different things, when I heard in my spirit, “GOD IS WORKING BEHIND THE SCENES!”

You are going to hear surprising reports about situations that you have been praying for, which seemed to stay unchanged, for God is working behind the scenes!

Test your heart for any wavering, doubt and unbelief and let it go! Repent and put your trust fully in the Lord, for He is working behind the scenes, doing a new thing!

ASK, CALL and CRY OUT to the Lord for His mighty hand to move in your situation and you shall marvel at His goodness and grace.

Watch this video and be encouraged, strengthened and empowered to believe against all hope!

Isaiah 43:16-19 King James Version (KJV)

16 Thus saith the Lord, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;

17 Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow.

18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

God bless you with marvellous testimonies!

KNOWING YOUR IDENTITY AND TAKING UP YOUR AUTHORITY

As we have now entered a whole new dispensation in May 2018 where great breakthrough and acceleration is at the order of the day, we also need to be very watchful for the strategies of the enemy to come with sudden, unexpected blows to knock you down, so that you lose sight of who you are and what your purpose is.

 

Remember, 1 Jn. 4:4 says, “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”

Do not identify with your latest battle, taking the bait to receive the accusations of the enemy, which are always designed to make you doubt your worth in the Kingdom, causing you to be stripped of your identity and thereby forfeiting your authority in Christ.

Remember the course of negative thinking. It spills over into the emotions, then into your attitude, behavior and utterance.  From there it puts stress on the adrenal gland, which releases toxins into the body and the result is bodily ailments, which usually starts in the digestive track.

If you have been reeling under the attack of Jezebel and the Religious Spirit, come back under the shelter of the Most High in worship and let the Holy Spirit comfort you as you just bask in His Presence, being soaked in the glory. Let the forgiveness of Jesus flow where necessary, repent of your own negative reactions and let Him heal your heart, your cellular memory, the adrenal gland and your body (if needed).
Our identity is in Christ and in Him we are more tan conquerors!  Hallelujah!
Now take up your authority, bind the demonic spirits that have attached themselves to your negative experiences and cast them out in Jesus’ Name!

Luke 10:19KJV)

 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
As you pray in tongues, listen in to receive the Word of the Lord and start declaring it over your circumstances, your future and your destiny.  Get your vision and purpose back, set your face like a flint (releasing the past) and press in to your destiny.
“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”  Phil.3:13-14

 

 

Positioning Yourself for Passover 2018

I sense that the Holy Spirit is calling the Bride to take time out in preparation for the Passover Celebration 2018.

 Come and sit at His feet, absorbing His full provision through the blood. Behold the Lamb that takes away the sin of the world and allow the Holy Spirit to imprint this glory into your spirit to be transformed by it.

 

 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:18)

 Let Him wash you with the precious blood of Jesus – washing your heart, your emotions and mind – cleansing your soul and healing your wounds as you repent of the sin of negative mindsets, attitudes, words and actions.  Forgive everyone who has hurt you. Release them and bless them with all of God’s goodness and grace. 

 Let go of stress and worry, fears and negative expectations.  Give it to the Lord in exchange for His peace and rest.  Then set your heart to thanksgiving, praise and worship.

Come into His refreshing by the Holy Spirit so that you are positioned to behold Him afresh in His passion for the whole world as He paid the utmost penalty for our sin to bring us into the liberty of the abundant resurrection life of the Spirit to become like Him, establishing His Kingdom on the earth.

 Also bring your best offering to the Lord, honoring Passover and what He has has done for us.  In giving to Him at this special celebration of the Passover feast and the victory which He wrought for us on the cross, there is an activation of tremendous blessings to be released over our lives. 

 PRAYER:  Father God, I come into Your holy presence by the blood of the Lamb that was slain for me.  Take me into a deeper revelation of the power of the blood and the inheritance I have received in Christ Jesus through the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit. 

May you enjoy a glorious Passover Celebration with fresh revelation of the power of the Blood of Jesus and a fresh empowering to live the abundant life in Christ! 

In His Grace

Declarations for Wholeness

 

This is a season in which God is inviting us to step into His provision in Christ to become whole in every area of our lives, so that we can fulfill our God-ordained destiny.

 “Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.” 3 John 2

The Word of God states that:

”Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”  (Job 22:28)

 “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions” (Ps.107:20)

 Taking these scriptures by faith, let us declare what the Word is saying:

God’s amazing grace is healing every area in my soul that has been traumatized.

Grace and peace is multiplied to me as I grow in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

I declare that my soul is being brought into wholeness, so that I will prosper in all things and I will be in perfect health.

It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.

” I have been crucified with Christ [that is, in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body I live by faith [by adhering to, relying on, and completely trusting] in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.”  Gal.2:20 Amplified Bible.

I DECLARE THAT THE BLOOD OF JESUS IS WASHING EVERY NEGATIVE MEMORY OUT OF MY MIND AND SUBCONSCIOUS AND DECLARE THAT IT WILL NEVER COME BACK AGAIN – IN JESUS’ NAME!

Look to see what Father God is doing and listen to what He is saying

This is the lifestyle that Jesus modeled for us, namely to do nothing, except what we see our Father in heaven is doing and to say nothing, except we hear what He is saying.

 “Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. 20 For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel.” John 5:19-20

“Then Jesus said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things.”  John 8:28

“Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matt.28:20

The Lord is always with us and when we bring a situation before Him, asking Him to show us what He is doing and saying in that situation, He will surely do so.  The secret is to ask in trust!

Many times when I have prayed for people to get freedom from harassing situations and traumatic memories, I have simply led them to look at what Jesus was doing and to listen to what He was saying in that situation.

A young woman was gloriously set free from paranoia when she looked with her spiritual eyes, seeing Jesus walk into the traumatic memory when a burglar stepped through an open window into her room.  She saw Jesus standing between her and the burglar and He comforted her with the Word, “Do not fear, I am with you always”.   All fear was gone and she was filled with joy and peace with a new picture in her memory.

Whatever our situations might be, when the Lord is invited into it while we watch and listen to see and t hear what He is doing and saying, we receive a paradigm shift and our perception changes.

As we receive His Word on the situation, we start declaring it until it fills our mind and emotions with peace.

Hallelujah!

 

The Power of the Blood of Jesus

Salvation, forgiveness, inner healing, physical healing, deliverance and a life of victory in the glory all start with the Blood of Jesus.

If we get a revelation of the power of the precious blood of Jesus, we will always be in the position of victorious living in the abundant life that Jesus purchased for us on the cross!

FORGIVENESS through the Blood of Jesus.

The blood of Jesus was shed for the forgiveness of our sin, once and for all.  Because of the tremendous price that Jesus paid for our freedom, He also expects us to forgive those who trespass against us, just as He forgave us our debt.  This has to be an ongoing way of living – up to seventy times seven times.

Unforgiveness and bitterness in our hearts invite the tormentors according to Matt.18:23-35.

Ask God to give you the grace to forgive – not only those who have wounded you, but also to forgive yourself because of the price that Jesus paid for your freedom.

 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 1:8-9

When the Lord forgives us, He never thinks of it again:  Heb.8:12/Ps.103:14/Is.43:25

“For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more” (Heb.8:12)

Jesus was shedding His blood for us from Gethsemane to the cross.

He was sweating blood through the agony of His soul in Gethsemane.

He was beaten with sticks, then scourged with 39 stripes, paying the price for our healing. He was bleeding inwardly (bruised for our iniquities), chastised for our peace.

The crown of thorns was beaten into His head with sticks, then He carried the cross on the Via Dolorosa on a bleeding body.  After that He was crucified – the Lamb of God without sin, paying the ultimate price of obedience to death so that we can go free.  Then the sword was stuck into His side, causing water and blood to come forth, signifying the coming forth of His bride from His side. This is a mystery.

The life is in the blood and through His death and resurrection He gave us life and life more abundantly (John 10:10).

“Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.”

Isaiah 53:4-5

The blood of Jesus also brought us nigh unto Him.

But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

Eph.2:13

Through the Blood an new living way was opened for us to enter into communion-union with God:

Therefore brethern, since we have full freedom and confidence to enter into the Holies of holies by the power and virtue in the blood of Jesus….. Heb.10:19-20 Amplified Bible

We have been redeemed from the curse of the law through the blood of Jesus and entered into grace, by which we stand!

The blood of Jesus did all these things for us (and more) and as we receive all that He provided for us by faith, we step into a new and living way of abundant life.

“It is finished!”

When we call the power of the blood against any demonic activity, it has to bow and depart!  The devil knows the power of the blood, but do we?!

HEALING PRAYERS FOR TRAUMA – CHART

Because of the finished work of Calvary, the healing power of the Blood of Jesus and the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, we can receive total healing in our soul – mind (memory, consciousness, sub-conscious mind, imagination, intellect and thoughts), emotions and will.

 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

3 John 2

The heart consists of the soul (mind, imagination, thoughts, will and emotions as well as the conscience).

The wounds in our heart which we have been suffering from for maybe a long time, will be healed and we can experience the freedom and liberty in the spirit to serve God fully.  As we receive God’s forgiveness, our conscience is cleared of all guilt, shame and condemnation.

Everything in our being gets re-calibrated by the Holy Spirit with the sound of heaven, resounding in an unspeakable joy.

Wholeness in the soul results in healing of the body and we come in alignment with the Holy Spirit as we submit ourselves to His rule and guidance in our lives.

We want to encourage you to set time apart for fasting and praying as you allow the Holy Spirit to do a deep work of sanctification and healing in you.

You will come forth with a fresh anointing to fulfill your call and destiny in Christ.  Hallelujah!
