“What I Have Done Before, I Will Do Again!”

By Deborah Waldron Fry

 

 

5/11 Heard," What I have done before, I will do again!" What are you facing, Child of God? Are you backed up against a wall, in a place where there seems to be no way out? The enemy is hot on your heels and your strength is gone and you have nothing left to fight with and no where to turn? Here is what God is telling you, "It is at the end of your own way that Mine can come forth!" When all looks hopeless, the God of the Impossible comes through! Start praising Him in the middle of your storm! The Waters of Chaos that threaten to take you under are the very Waters that will part before you and you shall walk right through them with the Lord at your side! 

 

"Beloved. The Blood of the Lamb is enough to deliver you from every situation, My Child. What I have done before, I will do again. When the waters of Chaos surround you, I make a Way where there seems to be no Way. The Breath of God comes from the Four Corners to open a Path before you. The enemy fears My Glory from the east to the west, from the north and the south. When he comes in like a flood, I lift up a standard against him. 

 

"Your Savior has gone before you and I am with you. There is a Holy Whirlwind coming out of the north, a great Cloud with raging Fire engulfing itself; and My Brightness is all around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of the Fire. It is the Glory of God. Your God is a Consuming Fire. All that is not of Me shall fall. The enemy shall fall down on his face, My Child. I have declared that no weapon formed against you shall prosper.

 

"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you: when you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon you. Out of the north comes My Golden Splendor; around your God is Awesome Majesty. Who can stand against you when I am for you, Dear One? Do you feel the Winds of the Spirit blowing, My Child? 

 

"What I have done before, I will do again. I am the same yesterday today and forever. Sing to the Lord, for as the horse and its rider were hurled into the sea, so shall the devil and his demons be hurled into the Sea of Oblivion, never to be remembered again. Oh, but your faith shall be remembered, Beloved! Great is your reward in heaven! Your faith is known in Heaven! Speak it forth now. For I have declared that earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

 

"Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance I will bring you today. The enemy you see today you will never see again. Your God fights for you; you need only to be still. Keep your eyes on Me. You will not drown, My Child. I am bringing you through the Waters of Chaos on dry ground. Your feet shall not slip. You shall not be lost but the Spirit is guiding every step you take.

 

"Do you see the Light at the end of the tunnel? It is shining brightly as a Lamp unto your feet and a Light to your Path. I am the Light of the world and the darkness will never overtake you. Remember not the former things, neither consider the things of old. The past does not dictate your future, Beloved.  Behold, I am doing a New Thing; now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a Way in the wilderness. 

 

" Thus says the LORD, who makes a Way in the sea, and a Path in the Mighty Waters; Who brings forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; "YOUR ENEMIES shall lie down together, they SHALL NOT RISE: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow!" You are MORE than a conqueror through Him who loves you!

 

"The Winds of the Spirit are drying up the Sea of Chaos and turning it into dry ground! Cross over, Beloved. Keep walking by faith! You are walking on Holy Ground. I am well able to keep you from falling. 

 

"Trust Me, and know that I am working all things out for your good. The Light of My Face is shining upon you! You shall see My Goodness in the land of the living! You are walking into a NEW and BRIGHTER DAY! 

 

 

 

 

Moses answered the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still."... Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the LORD drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.' (Exodus 14:13-14, 21-22)

 

Isaiah 43:16-19  

Thus saith the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters; 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. Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 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.

 

Isaiah 59:19

So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.

 

Isaiah 43:2

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you: when you walkest through the fire, you shall not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon you.

 

Deuteronomy 31:8

The LORD Himself goes before you; He will be with you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid or discouraged.”

 

Ezekiel 1:4

Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness was all around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire.

 

Ezekiel 3:23

So I got up and went out to the plain, and behold, the glory of the LORD was present there, like the glory I had seen by the River Kebar, and I fell facedown.

 

Habakkuk 2:14

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

 

Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

 

Romans 8:18

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the Glory that is to be revealed in us.

 

Romans 8:28

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

 

Psalm 27:13 

I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

Proverbs 4:18

 

But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn That shines brighter and brighter until the full day.

I SAW MANY FEELING LIKE THEY ARE SUFFOCATING IN SORROW AND JESUS CAME AND BREATHED UPON THEM AND SPOKE “I AM TURNING ALL YOUR SORROW INTO JOY” 

By Lana Vawser

 

 

 

 

Recently I had an encounter with the Lord and He showed me many in the body of Christ who have felt overcome with sorrow. The Lord showed me this sorrow was from circumstances in the last few years, but there were also things from many years ago that were still causing sorrow in the heart. I watched as these ones felt like their very breath had been taken by this sorrow. The word that surrounded me in this encounter was “overcome”. They felt overcome by the sorrow they were experiencing. They felt stuck in sorrow. Many were crying out “Lord I feel like I am suffocating in this sorrow” and that’s when HE stepped in. 

 

 

I saw Jesus walk up before each one and He breathed upon them. His breath shouted LIFE and HEALING, SO loudly. His breath of life, His breath of healing, His breath of freedom, the breath of His deliverance, to BREATHE DEEPLY in peace again. 

 

 

I could feel the longing of His heart so deeply to set them free, to break the chains of these sorrows that had entangled and weighed down their hearts and looking into their eyes, His eyes brimming with love, He spoke:

 

 

“I AM TURNING ALL YOUR SORROW INTO JOY”

 

 

At that moment I knew all the sorrows that have kept the hearts of these precious sons and daughters of God caged, were now being healed, they were being brought back to life. There was a deep soothing and healing taking place in their hearts as His love and His presence encompassed their sorrowful hearts. I could feel such a weight in that moment of the divine turning. I could feel the weight in that moment of the recompense of the Lord. I could feel the weight of His restoration. I could feel the weight of “beauty for ashes and joy for mourning” (Isaiah 61)

 

 

When the Lord spoke “I AM TURNING ALL YOUR SORROW INTO JOY”, I felt the word “ALL” highlighted. I then began to see these ones that have been on their knees crying out to the Lord for so long and I could hear the words “Lord, there are SO MANY SORROWS. There are SO MANY SORROWS. There have been SO MANY SORROWS” and I knew when the Lord spoke “ALL” that He was going after that list of sorrows. 

 

There were such powerful revelatory truths of His love, His nature, His goodness to work ALL things together for good for those who love Him (Romans 8:28), that IN HIM there is LIFE and LIFE abundantly (John 10:10) and for whom the Son sets free is free indeed (verse), His heart to release and restore double (Isaiah 61:7-8) that was exploding all around. As He breathed over these ones and He spoke truth over and over, over these ones, these seeds of revelation were landing in the heart and resurrection life was beginning to explode within them. 

 

There was a DEEP DEEP joy that was being released from His heart, from His Word, from His breath upon them deep into the very core of these ones. It was a DEEP JOY that was bursting forth of being IN HIM and in His presence. 

 

 

It’s a time of turning. It’s a time of breakthrough. He is healing and removing the suffocating sorrows and restoring peace, restoring joy and bringing deep, deep healing to hearts. 

 

I heard Him speak again: 

 

 

“Where there has been suffocating sorrow, you will now SEE and HEAR the SOUND OF LIFE WITHIN YOU AND ALL AROUND YOU. It’s time for RESURRECTION LIFE.”

 Psalm 91

By Anna Werner 

 

 

1 You who live in the shelter of 'Elyon, who spend your nights in the shadow of Shaddai,

2 who say to ADONAI, "My refuge! My fortress! My God, in whom I trust!"

3 He will rescue you from the trap of the hunter and from the plague of calamities;

4 He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you will find refuge; His truth is a shield and protection.

5 You will not fear the terrors of night or the arrow that flies by day,

6 or the plague that roams in the dark, or the scourge that wreaks havoc at noon.

7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand; but it won't come near you.

8 Only keep your eyes open, and you will see how the wicked are punished.

9 For you have made ADONAI, the Most High, who is my refuge, your dwelling-place.

10 No disaster will happen to you, no calamity will come near your tent;

11 for He will order His angels to care for you and guard you wherever you go.

12 They will carry you in their hands, so that you won't trip on a stone.

13 You will tread down lions and snakes, young lions and serpents you will trample underfoot.

14 "Because he loves me, I will rescue him; because he knows my name, I will protect him.

15 He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him when he is in trouble. I will extricate him and bring him honor.

16 I will satisfy him with long life and show him my salvation." Psalm 91

A Jealous God

By Greg Laurie

 

 

LISTEN  

 

 

 

"You must not bow down to them or worship them, for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God who will not tolerate your affection for any other gods. I lay the sins of the parents upon their children; the entire family is affected—even children in the third and fourth generations of those who reject me."

—Exodus 20:5

 

 

God calls himself a “jealous God.” But does that mean He’s insecure and is therefore jealous? We tend to always think of jealousy in a negative sense. After all, it was Shakespeare who referred to it as “the green-eyed monster.”

 

We envision a jealous person as someone who may fly into a rage for the slightest reason. But when God says He’s a jealous God, He means it in a different way.

 

Imagine if a wife said to her husband, “Honey, I love you so much. And by the way, I’m going on a date tonight. I don’t know when I’ll be back. Maybe I’ll see you tomorrow. Bye. Love you!” No clear-thinking husband would go along with that plan.

 

But we’ll say, “Oh, Lord, I love you so much,” and we’ll effectively have another god in our lives. The Bible says, “Little children, keep yourselves from idols” (1 John 5:21 NKJV). And having another god is easier than we may think.

 

A lot of things can become idols in our lives. A vehicle or a house can become an idol. So can a career. Even a ministry can become an idol. Other people can become idols in our lives.

 

When we take our eyes off the Lord and become more passionate about a hobby or some other thing we do for fun, that can become an idol as well.

 

When the Bible says that God is a jealous God, it means that He oversees your life. You are not in charge of it. God cares about you. He’s a Father who sees the potential of His children, a father who is brokenhearted when that potential isn’t realized, or worse yet, when we waste our lives.

 

God is a Father who loves us and wants the very best for us. And He doesn’t want to share us with anyone or anything else.

"Overturning Roe v. Wade: Rejoice but Stay Focused" 

By Dutch Sheets 

 

 

 

Prophetic word released on May 4, 2022:

Roe versus Wade

The Give Him 15 posts must be written and recorded the afternoon or evening before the day of their release. This is why yesterday's post did not deal with the Supreme Court decision on the Dobbs abortion case. I don't need to explain what was leaked – I'm sure everyone has heard by now. I do have a few thoughts to share today regarding the developments, however.

Rejoice but Stay Focused

First, rejoice, but stay focused. In Ezra 3, the Israelites were attempting to see Jerusalem restored. The first step was rebuilding the temple. After the successful laying of the foundation, there was a great celebration – they poured a slab and threw a party. However, their enemies regrouped very quickly, organizing an intimidation and slander campaign, including the hiring of lobbyists. It wasn't long before they succeeded in stopping the rebuilding process; the delay lasted 16 years. Their diabolical scheming had worked. God had to raise up two prophets, Haggai and Zechariah, to motivate the Israelites to restart the work.

We must take a lesson from this. We're deceiving ourselves if we think the enemies of Christ in America, backed by demonic powers, will give up in their attempt to take over this nation. Ultimate victory over their efforts will not occur until a great awakening turns the hearts of tens of millions of Americans. This will happen; America shall be saved.

Not only must we see revival, but there is still much work to be done on the practical side. Regarding the abortion issue, if this ruling holds, it will not make abortion illegal, but simply send the decision to the states to do as they choose. A few will completely outlaw the process, others will put strict limitations on it, and still others will continue to murder babies – some even after they are born. Sadly, many in America have seared consciences.

That being said, the reversing of Roe is absolutely critical to the turning of our nation. God holds nations accountable for the decisions of their leaders. America, as a whole, has fed Baal and Molech the blood of innocent babies for 50 years. That national curse can now be broken, if the decision stands. Please don't forget that no decision is final until formally released by the Supreme Court.  

This Was Planned

There is little doubt in my mind that this was all planned and coordinated by the left. I don't believe for one minute that a single rebel secretly decided to do this, then late Monday night, government officials on the left began to scramble to take advantage of it. Their prepared statements were ready and began coming forth immediately – some Monday night, others Tuesday morning. A number of government officials on the left actually used the same phrases, one of which was "We will fight like Hell." (Don't use that phrase if you are a conservative by the way. Your words will be twisted to mean that you are promoting physical violence, and the "Homeland Gestapo" will pay you a visit.)

This was a coordinated effort to re-engage the left, many of whom have lost faith in Biden and the Dems. They have felt the effects of runaway inflation, seen the pathetic state of affairs at the border, and are shocked at how quickly Biden is losing his cognitive abilities. Something drastic needed to happen to awaken the base before the November elections. Yes, the ruling would have likely happened in June anyway, but this leak gives them more time and the ability to get out in front of it. They will try to pass a national law legalizing abortion, and there will come attempts to pack the Supreme Court, all of which will re-energize their base.

Yes, it is a despicable breach of protocol to politicize the Court in this way, but the reality is that they politicized the Court a long time ago. And as far as leaks go, they had no problem leaking information from the Oval Office, the most powerful office in the world. In fact, they praised and lauded the "leakers," calling them "whistleblowers." If they would do that to the president, why would they not do it to the Supreme Court? It is certainly no more sacred an institution than the presidency of the United States. These people know no shame. They are liars and are Hell-bent on changing this nation into a globalist, antichrist nation.

Jubilee

My friend, Tom Schleuter, sent me an article he wrote recently regarding the biblical concept of Jubilee. Here is a portion:

Forty-nine! On the night of May 2, 2022, as I was falling asleep the Lord told me to remember the number forty-nine...As I woke up the next morning, the number was again prominent in my thoughts.

The Lord took me back to a memory in February of 2001. I had just returned from a prayer assignment in Germany with my good friend, Beth Alves. During my preparation time for the next Sunday message the Lord said to me, "I want you to concentrate on the number forty-nine." I wasn't sure what He was talking about until He clarified and said, "I want you to preach this Sunday on Jubilee."

I struggled a bit with His request because I knew that our church would be celebrating its 50th-year Jubilee a year later in 2002. But He persisted, so I began studying and reading the passages referring to Jubilee in Leviticus 25:8-22. (In short, all property was returned to its original owner, all debts were forgiven, and all who had sold themselves into slavery in order to pay debts were freed. This was all a prophetic picture of Christ our Jubilee – restoring and forgiving us.)

By reading and meditating on the above verses, one can see that there are many powerful blessings the Lord releases during the Jubilee season. And I use the word "season" because it literally takes place over a three-year period.

In 2001, our congregation was entering its 49th year, and the Lord was making it very clear to us that He was taking us into the process of Jubilee, so I preached on Jubilee that next Sunday. Within the next few weeks, there was tremendous, unexpected blessings poured out on our congregation. We received a gift of a grand piano; a woman sowed a significant financial gift and a $100,000 restoration was done to the interior of our building; other tremendous financial gifts came in. But perhaps most importantly, the Lord began to fine-tune our vision of being a strategic house of prayer to Arlington, TX, the state of Texas, and the nation.

One powerful aspect of Leviticus 25 is that the Lord answered a question that had been asked by the people: What are we to do if we cannot sow during the 49th year, which is also a Sabbath year? (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)

They were concerned. If they didn't sow in the 49th year, they would have nothing to eat in the 50th year. But the 50th year was set aside as a time of God's providential and powerful blessing upon the people. They were not to work, plow, sow, or reap. The Lord would make sure there was enough reaped in the 49th year to sustain them in the 50th and 51st years!

Why would God again bring up the number 49 to me? Because we are in the 49th year of Roe versus Wade. January of 2023 will be the 50th anniversary of the decision. The Lord began making it clear to me that it is time to press in for Jubilee, to prepare for Jubilee's deliverance and blessing. Just as with Israel, this is not a time to be fretful or worrisome about provision. It's a time to concentrate on Jubilee and on the tremendous, providential blessings the Lord is about to bring upon America during the 50th year.

We must continue to press in with prayer during this season. We must finish this race, and cross the finish line. We cannot give up in the last moments as we proceed toward victory. The curse that has been upon our nation for almost 50 years is about to be removed because of the Blood of Christ and the faithful intercessions of God's Ekklesia. The work of many in prayer, legislation, fervent lobbying, and the constant calling forth for life for our nation is bringing about a great Jubilee blessing.

But again, we must persevere. It has been prophesied by several that the next three years will be a season of great spiritual warfare, a time of great conflict regarding the issue of life and death, blessing and cursing. We must rise up as God's chosen people, sons and daughters of the Most High God, and continue to pray that life and Jubilee will be released over our nation. It's 49, and we are heading toward 50.

Pray with Me:

Father, we thank You for the changes occurring in our land. Yet, we know we have much ground to retake. We ask You for supernatural help, and we know this is coming. Our greatest help will come through the revival You are sending. Changed hearts will change minds, which will bring about great societal change.

We ask You to cause every Justice voting to overturn Roe to hold fast. And we ask for an awakening of the conscience of our nation. May America fall in love with the babies again and protect life at all costs. We ask You once again to forgive us for this great evil. Heal those that have been touched by it, and give America a fresh Jubilee start. We ask this in the name of Jesus, our Jubilee, amen.

Our decree: We decree that Roe versus Wade will be overturned and America will experience the freedom of Jubilee.

Father Knows Best

by Mike Ford (1955-2021)

 

 

Remember the 1950s television sitcom Father Knows Best? Robert Young starred as the mythical father of the Anderson family. His wife was a homemaker and mother to their three children. Each week an opportunity arose for "Dad" to solve a problem.

 

 

What happened to those wonderfully innocent and uplifting days?

 

 

But what kind of fathers are portrayed on television today? Homer Simpson, simple-minded buffoon, or the jovial Dr. Cliff Huxtable, dominated by his wife and manipulated by his children. Or worst of all, the male-chauvinist, crude, and perverse Al Bundy.

 

 

What has happened to fathers in our society? Have you ever stopped to think of the diminished role fathers now play in Western civilization? For many in Western society, men have become nothing more than sperm banks! Life as we have known it is deteriorating rapidly—decaying from within. The basic building block of society, the family, is being destroyed. We can lay much of the blame for this at the feet of fathers who are not fulfilling their responsibilities.

 

 

Quayle Vs. Brown

 

 

Years ago, former Vice President Dan Quayle made comments about the television show Murphy Brown during a speech. This is a typical sitcom where the heroine, Murphy Brown, is intelligent, articulate, independent, and self-sufficient. The men around her are depicted as fools, idiots, or otherwise unrealistic. At the time of the Vice President's speech, Murphy (unmarried) became pregnant and decided that she would "have" this baby, but she had no need of a man as a father to the child or a husband to her.

 

 

Mr. Quayle remarked that it was this kind of example that helped to destroy traditional family values. As soon as the words left his mouth, he was absolutely vilified in the American media. Editorials and talk shows argued about his statement for weeks. Media reports to the contrary, he was right on the money with his comments.

 

 

Over twenty-five hundred years ago, the prophet Isaiah predicted that men would abdicate their rightful roles. He writes, "As for My people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them" (Isaiah 3:12). Despite what "enlightened society" would have you believe, the Bible teaches that a father is meant to be a loving authority figure, the head of his home, his wife, and his children.

 

 

Yet in today's world, many families do not contain a father, or if they do, the father does not properly fulfill his role. Increasingly, we see one-parent families with that one parent being the mother. In 90% of divorces in America, mothers are awarded sole custody of the children.

 

 

The word translated "fatherless" in the Bible comes from Hebrew and Greek words meaning "orphans." In current language, an orphan is "a child deprived by death of one or usually both parents." But to God, an orphan is a child without a father, which should give us some idea of the importance He places on the father and his role in the family and society.

 

 

In no way does He diminish the role of the mother. From necessity in many cases, she has taken on the role of both parents. The mother is every bit as vital to the family as the father. And that is the point! Families—especially the children—need both parents.

 

 

But more and more often, families in American society do not contain a father. Some 35% of all children now live apart from their biological fathers, according to Washington Post writer Paul Taylor (Charlotte Observer, "When Fathers No Longer Figure," June 21, 1992). Furthermore, says Mr. Taylor, a white child born today has only one chance in two of living continuously with a biological father through age 18. A black child has one chance in 12.

 

 

Why are so many of our families without fathers? Husbands and fathers have abandoned their God-given responsibilities as leaders, guides, and establishers and maintainers of standards in their families. As a result, wives and children fill the void. Without fathers in the position of final arbiter, families are chaotic, their children out of control. Isaiah also foretold this result: "The child will be insolent toward the elder" (Isaiah 3:5). In other words, children will be disrespectful to adults. While much of the day-to-day childrearing may fall to the mother, the support and strength of the father are necessary to raise balanced, obedient children.

 

 

Again quoting from Mr. Taylor's article, "Fatherlessness consigns children to poverty; children in father-absent households are six times more likely to be poor. 

 

Anthropological studies have suggested that it may lead boys in particular to become hypermasculine and violence prone. It deprives inner-city neighborhoods of the quasi-policing function played by good family men." It is almost humorous that mankind needs an "anthropological study" to tell them what any Bible student already knows: A family without a father is unbalanced and ripe for problems.

 

 

Satan Hates Families

 

 

Why have so many fathers run from their responsibilities? Why have they let their shoes be filled by others? It is simple, really. Satan. Satan hates the very thought of a happy, healthy, and whole family. He will do everything in his power to destroy it.

 

 

Consider one of the major foundations of this world: Nimrod and the Babylonian Mystery Religion. It began as the worship of Nimrod. Idolatry is bad enough, but it soon evolved into the worship of Semiramis, Nimrod's spouse and mother of Tammuz. There is considerable reason to think this evolution was directed to obscure and counter the worship of God the Father!

 

 

In the first century AD, the New Testament church began. But, over a period of many years and after many changes, the Catholic church, with its worship of the Virgin Mary and the Christ-child, appears and dominates Christendom. Satan has turned this world from a proper worship of God to that of worshiping women and children. When today's religions mention Him at all, God the Father is pictured as a cruel, harsh individual, while the Virgin Mary—and even Christ Himself!—are feminine, forgiving, gentle images.

 

 

Satan does not want us to have a relationship with our Father. He would have us believe that a mother is all that is necessary. Though the expression "The church ‘is the mother of us all'" is biblical (Galatians 4:26), Satan twists and perverts its meaning in his religions. Some of the New Age religions revolve around mother goddesses like Gaia.

 

 

Throughout history Satan has attacked the father. Wars kill mostly men in their prime, fathers and potential fathers. Homosexuality is practiced mostly by men. Satan inspires actions that take men from their rightful positions.

 

 

In today's society only about 10% of the families in America are traditional father-breadwinner, mother-homemaker families. Those types of families are portrayed in the media as dinosaurs—something to ridicule. Men are shown as either bumbling idiots (e.g., Dagwood Bumstead and Homer Simpson) or too cool for the mundane job of fatherhood (James Bond and Thomas Magnum). Yet the wives, if they have them, are always smart and so very kind to carry the deadbeat husband through life.

 

 

Take Action!

 

 

What can we do about this sad state of affairs? First of all, be aware of the subtle influences of this world! Everywhere we turn it seems that men in general and fathers in particular are being subtly undercut. Radio commercials, movies, newspapers, magazines, and advertising—all are guilty of portraying men negatively and women positively.

 

 

Second, understand that everyone has a God-ordained job to do. In my family, my wife fulfills her role as mother and homemaker in an exemplary manner. I could not do her job nearly as well. Fathers have been given the responsibilities of providers, protectors, and leaders. 

 

Sometimes these are thankless, grueling, unexciting jobs. Fathers need support, understanding, and appreciation from wives and children. As big and gruff as they are, men often have fragile egos! Let them know they are appreciated.

 

Third, follow the guidelines God sets forth for fathers. For example, "And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord" (Ephesians 6:4). Fathers have to fill their role in self-control, not being so harsh as to alienate, anger, and frustrate their children, but raising them with discipline, instruction, and guidelines.

 

Proverbs 22:6 says, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." The Jewish Publication Society translation correctly includes the word "even," rendering the second clause as "even when he is old . . .." This translation stresses that with right leadership and instruction by parents in agreement, a child reared in God's way will not depart from it, even in old age.

 

The family, whose structure mirrors that of God's government, should function as God's Kingdom in microcosm. How well we fulfill our responsibilities as fathers will partly determine our places in the Kingdom. It is that important.

 

In our families, we must ignore a society ruled by Satan that has largely replaced fathers with welfare systems and pray daily for more of God's Holy Spirit to give fathers the strength and wisdom to do their jobs correctly. We must not bend to Satan's view of the family, but stand firm in God's Word. If we do these things, "the father of the righteous will greatly rejoice" (Proverbs 23:24).

I AM Your God AND Your Good

By Russ Walden

 

 

The Father says today, I Am your God AND your good. I Am the health of your countenance. I Am your safety and your security. I Am your high tower, I Am your rock. I Am your foundation. I Am your abiding place. This day, I Am drawing you into the depths of My spirit, that you might live and move and have your being in the secret place of the Most High, where I will cause you to be hidden from the world. 

 

Your body, your “earth-suit” may be seen, but not the hidden man of the heart – your spirit man, where I empower and enable you to face every challenge. You see, says the Father, I Am teaching and causing you to live this day in a renewed inner awareness of My presence within. Your outer man may be out there walking and working in the world, but I have hidden you in My pavilion.

 

I Am fellowshipping with you in the temple that is within you, the temple that is my dwelling place on the inside of your person. In any and every place or situation in life, remember that I Am invisible within you, you are hidden in the holy place of My presence. Remember that underneath are the Everlasting Arms. I Am your all-in-all, that all you have is of Me, for I Am your God and your source. 

 

If called upon for extra work, you can do it without feeling that you are using up your strength, because My strength is your strength. You need not fear the passing of years because “before Abraham was,” you existed in Me, and that is where you exist.

FIRE BY NIGHT

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]

 

        ...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB 

 

 

 

THE FORCE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

 

Words of Prophecy:

 

*____Speaking words of "life" [Love] continually releases the force of righteousness into an environment - making "inoperative" [impotent] death and all of the negative forces that proceed from it [fear, darkness, confusion etc.].

 

____ ...."In the way [path] of righteousness [right standing and communion with the Father and His Word] is [the continual impartation of] life [Zoe - divine Life, Grace, divine Love, divine Light, divine Wisdom, resurrection power - first to oneself and, then to all those who cross their path], and in its pathway there is no death [no death in any of its forms {darkness, fear, sickness and disease etc.} can remain standing {functional}]".... Proverbs 12:28 NASB

 

        ...."Death and life are in the power of the tongue".... Proverbs 18:21a NASB

 

        ...."It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life".... John 6:63 NASB

 

____Clothed "with power from on high" and being clothed with the garments [robe] of righteousness are one and the same.

 

"clothed" - covered with; cloaked; array;

 

____...."I [Jesus] am sending forth the promise of My Father upon you; but you are to stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high".... Luke 24:49 NASB

 

        ...."He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses".... Revelation 19:13-14 NASB

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

____Father, we thank You and praise You that by YOUR doing You have made us the righteousness of God IN Christ - a people through whom the "force of righteousness" flows, devastating the force of death [in all of its forms] at EVERY turn. And we declare all of these things DONE in Jesus' Name, to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
