 TODAY, I HEAR

By Deborah Waldron Fry

 

 

 Today, I hear " Beauty for ashes; from the fires of affliction NEW LIFE is arising!"

 

"Beloved. In an instant, in the twinkling of My Eye, I will bring forth Beauty from ashes. I bring Life from death, Strength to replace weakness, the poor become rich, the Oil of Joy shall flow once again for those in mourning. I cover you with a Garment of Praise for a spirit of heaviness. The season of mourning is over for you are ALIVE in Christ.

 

 

"Do not believe the lies of the devil, My Child. He is the one who is condemned forever to eat dust. Not you, Dear One. Oh no. I am He who raises the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy out of the ash heap, that I may seat you with nobles; with the princes of My people. You are in the world but not of it. Many are the afflictions of the Righteous, but I deliver you from them all. 

 

 

"Though the enemy wanted you to spend eternity in dust and ashes, it will not be so. The serpent shall be dust under your feet, Beloved. For I have raised you up with Christ Jesus and seated you with Me in the Heavenly Places. You were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the Glory of the Father, you too may walk in NEWNESS of Life.

 

 

"For you who revere My Name, the Sun of Righteousness arises with healing in His Wings, and you will go out and leap like calves from the stall. Then you will trample the wicked ones, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day I am preparing,” says the LORD of Hosts. "The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet! These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.

 

"You are arising from the fires of affliction in the Beauty of My Holiness. You shall not even smell of smoke for you are all Glorious within and without. Until the Day breaks and the shadows flee away, come with Me to My Mountain of Myrrh and to the Hill of Frankincense. I am turning your mourning into dancing. 

 

 

"You are all fair, My Love, and there is no spot in you.  The Winds of New Life are blowing. The wind blows where it wishes. You hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” 

 

 

 

 

"Beauty for ashes” or “a garland (of flowers) or headdress.” There is an interesting wordplay in the Hebrew text. The word for “beauty” is phe’er, and the word for “ashes” is epher—simply the moving of one letter. God has the power to change and move things around in our lives to make them into something beautiful. " 

 

 

  

Isaiah 61:3 

"To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

 

 

Malachi 4:2

“But for you who fear My name, the Sun of righteousness will rise with healing in His Wings, and you will go out and leap like calves from the stall. 3Then you will trample the wicked, for they will be ASHES under the soles of your feet on the day I am preparing,” says the LORD of Hosts. 

 

 

Genesis 3:14

"So the LORD God said to the serpent, 'Because you have done this, 'Cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will EAT DUST all the days of your life.”

 

 

Song of Solomon 4:6 

"Until the day breaks and the shadows flee away, I will go my way to the mountain of myrrh and to the hill of frankincense. 7 You are all fair, my love, and there is no spot in you.”

 

 

John 3:8

"The wind blows where it wishes. You hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” 

 

 

Romans 6:4

"We were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may walk in newness of life.”

 

 

John 16:33

"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

 

 

Romans 6:5

"For if we have been united with Him like this in His death, we will certainly also be united with Him in His resurrection.”

 

 

Ephesians 2:6

"And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus”

 

 

Romans 16:20

"The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you." 

 

 

Hebrews 9:11

"But Christ being come an High Priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; 12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption [for us]. 13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ASHES of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14  How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15 And for this cause He is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions [that were] under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

Give Comfort, Get Comfort

By Greg Laurie

 

LISTEN  

 

 

“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.”

—2 Corinthians 1:3-4

 

 

Men and women of God, wherever we find them in the Scriptures, seem to be masters of whatever situation in which they find themselves. For example, when Paul and Silas were thrown into a Roman prison for preaching the gospel, they sang praises at midnight. The walls shook, and the Lord freed them. The jailer was about to commit suicide, but Paul told him not to harm himself because all the prisoners were still there. 

 

The next thing you know, Paul was at the jailer’s house, having dinner. The jailer washed the stripes on Paul’s back, and Paul led the man’s household to the Lord (see Acts 16:25–34). Paul entered the place as a prisoner and left the place in charge.

 

Then there was Joseph, who was sold into slavery by his brothers. There was no hope of any kind for him. But through a turn of events, he became the second-most powerful man in the entire kingdom of Egypt. Effectively he was running the country.

 

In the midst of adversity, Paul and Joseph helped other people. They always seemed to rise above the circumstances and be the ones who led. And believers today can do the same thing.

 

One of the best things we can do when we are suffering is to help someone else. Maybe that doesn’t seem to make sense. But it actually makes all the sense in the world. It can be very easy to have a pity party, to draw back into our little cocoons and isolate ourselves from everyone else. But if we will go out and help other people, we will find comfort as we are distributing it. We will be the beneficiaries of what we are giving to others. Do you know someone who is in need of God’s comfort today?

 

 

 

 

1 Peter 5:6-7 (KJV) Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

"Redeeming the Wealth of the Father" 

By Joey LeTourneau

 

 

 

Building the 'True House’

 

"Then the word of the LORD came by Haggai the prophet, saying, 'Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, and this temple to lie in ruins?' Now therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts: 'Consider your ways!'" (Haggai 1:3-5)

 

Recently, our family and community had been graced with the use of a big building and property for our mission. The large building was in very poor condition (physically and spiritually) after sitting empty and abandoned for over seven years. Through lots of prayer, people, work and resources, God helped us rebuild one room at a time throughout the building. We saw a lot of longtime vision come to life.

 

We also saw a lot of discipleship, community and movement cultivated during that time, and doors started opening to go back out to the nations – toward people and communities who couldn't afford to come to us. At the same time, we heard from the owner of the building that our monthly costs were going to go up considerably and would actually be quadrupled. We had a choice to make, whether to stay in this building we had put so much work into restoring – where we had begun to build something with God – or to let it go and keep moving forward.

 

As we prayed, God made it clear that the funds which would go toward maintaining the building would be far better invested in the people He was calling us to empower around the world, and not in the building. We had such a peace that letting go of this building was not a step back, but it was actually a huge step forward – no matter what we had invested into it that previous year. He wanted us to take our investment and put it into those who were ready to go – to be sent – and those who wanted to multiply.

 

The building served its purpose for a time, but it was simply a 'petri dish' (a small, contained area where cultures may be started and grown), and eventually anything of true life must go beyond such a contained environment.

 

In order to keep moving forward in the new season, we had to change where we placed our investment, not in a building but in the 'true house' – the people we are called to empower. By doing this, I believe we will discover even greater fruit than what that building could have ever held. The same is true not just with a building, but with all parts of our lives, ministries, purposes and callings.

 

Sometimes we have to deconstruct what served us in the prior season in order to find God's new and revolutionary answers for the new season.

 

The Wealth of God's Investment Understood

 

"...the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints." (Ephesians 1:18) 

 

This is a scripture I have prayed for many years, but recently I felt the Lord take me back to camp on it, and I declared it for a number of days. It came to life for me in a greater way through the New Spirit Filled Life Bible footnotes for Ephesians 1:18:

 

"Eyes of your understanding being enlightened literally means that your heart may receive the brightness of hope resulting when the wealth of God's investment in you is understood.”

 

Simply put, we cannot fully see or understand the hope of our calling, or our commission to make disciples of all nations, until we first understand the "wealth of God's investment" in each person throughout the world, near and far. And we cannot see or go after the wealth that is hidden or stored in others until we recognize and become secure in the wealth He has already put within us. Otherwise, we will seek to build or prove our own wealth through platforms and ministries on the backs of people, rather than empowering those same people to go and multiply.

 

Going After the Gold in People

 

This question has to be asked by us all: Are we truly going after the wealth the Father has invested in people, or are we going after the surface numbers, platforms, following and influence that people provide us with? We may have to let go of whatever 'house' we are building in the name of the Kingdom in order to invest more fully in the people that are called to be God's Kingdom.

 

We can go after the wealth in people and the inheritance of the Father, like the parable of the treasure in the field, where the man went and sold all he owned in order to buy what was buried in that field (Matthew 13:44). What might that look like?

 

Look at Boaz and Ruth. Ruth was poor – a widow and a foreigner – so under the law at the time, Boaz could have just "ministered" to her by letting her glean from his field. But he went deeper than that. She wasn't just one of many; he loved her more abundantly, seeing the gold in her and bringing it out of her.

 

In Ruth 4, the "close relative" had his chance first, but he didn't redeem her because of what it might cost to his inheritance. But look at the inheritance he missed out on! Boaz didn't worry about what Ruth might cost him; he invested in the wealth he saw inside her. This eventually led to them having a son, Obed. Then Obed had a son named Jesse; Jesse went on to have a son named David, and David became the line of Christ. That's how God does some of His best building – through a family plan of multiplication and growing inheritance.

 

The Power of the Seed

 

It is difficult to count our fruit very well when it multiplies further than our eyes can see, but isn't that exactly the point? We should want more fruit than what we can count, see or gather; we should want impact that goes beyond what we can build or call our own, because it means that we really are building a bigger Kingdom than our own.

 

It's about learning to trust the power of the seed, rather than the immediacy of the apple. If I hold out my hands and offer a small seed, or a luscious apple, most people will choose the apple. They will eat it and throw away the core. The seed may have seemed too small and familiar. You need to have the vision of faith to see that inside the seed, there is a tree, and on that tree there are branches, and on those branches there are many apples! And within each of those apples, inside the core that we usually throw away, are many more seeds.

 

Unfortunately, it is common to build our "house" – whatever that is – according to the apple. But true discipleship lives by the seed, which creates many more apples for generations to come.

 

This is very difficult to live out if we find our identity or value from our position, what we do or the external results that are attached to our lives. And that is exactly why Ephesians 1:18 tells us that when our eyes are opened, we will know the hope of our calling, and we can finally understand the wealth God has already stored up inside us. When we know this, we won't need to gather numbers or titles and more to prove our fruit; rather, we'll take our seed and invest it in the wealth God shows us, which He has buried in others.

 

The Great Multiplication

 

"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." (Matthew 28:19)

 

So what do we do? We fulfill our commission to make disciples of all nations the way Jesus made disciples. He discovered the wealth in a small, unlikely group and then invested in them – one person at a time – until He gave His life to invest in us all! Jesus didn't keep power; He constantly gave it away to send His disciples to carry out the Kingdom and multiply further.

 

By sending us His indwelling Spirit, He made a way for us to do the very same in an even greater way. He gave us everything we need to go after the wealth in others and invest in them the way He did. We just have to become so secure in the true wealth He has already put inside us that we can trust the process of long-term multiplication through others. In this way, we won't want to build our own ministries; we will want to help empower others to build theirs!

 

What will happen when we consistently make disciples like this? What will happen when we see value or growth through a heavenly lens, not an earthly one? What will happen when we leave our 'houses' and what we are building in order to invest in and empower those in whom the Father has stored up His greatest wealth?

 

The eyes of our understanding will be opened. After all the searching we have done, and the breakthroughs we have been waiting for, we will finally start to realize, truly, what is the hope of His calling, and what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.

 

There is a harvest of harvesters out there, in fields that are white for harvest. They might not find their way to our churches, conferences or ministries, but I pray we are secure enough to let go of our 'kingdoms' and go and find the wealth God has hidden in them!

 

A great awakening will become a great multiplication!

REFLECTIONS OF THE FATHER'S HEART

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

[Exhortations From The Father]

 

 

 

*       The maintenance of a "thankful heart" will, ultimately, manifest in a total [absolute] healing on one's life [spirit, soul and body]. For constant words and actions of thanksgiving and praise towards Me continually "release" the forces of the Kingdom [Faith, Grace, Wisdom, Truth, Righteousness etc.] in the core of one's being [inner man] causing My divine Life and Light to not only "flood" their spirit [inner man] but, also, overflow into their soul [mind, will emotions] and body, effecting "wholeness" [on every level].

 

        ...."Enter His gates with thanksgiving And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name".... Psalm 100:4 NASB

 

        ...."I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders. I will be glad and exult in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High".... Psalm 9:1-2 NASB

 

        ...."O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever".... Psalm 30:12 NASB

 

        ...."But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you".... Romans 8:11 KJV

Deception in the Trump White House

From The National Pulse | August 4, 2022

 

Father, we pray against lockdowns and other overreaches of government control. Prevent anything like this from ever happening again, Lord.

 

 

Who worked behind President Trump’s back, pushing draconian Covid restrictions? And who were the unlikely allies of this person? 

 

From The National Pulse. Writing in her book Silent Invasion, former White House COVID task force member Ambassador Deborah Birx admits that her “go to” connections to push pro-lockdown policies in the White House were none other than Vice President Mike Pence, and President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.

 

 

The National Pulse has previously reported from Birx’s book how she admitted to “subterfuge” in the White House, going so far as to implement changes in policy without authorization, and contrary to the Trump White House’s instructions….

 

Throughout the book Birx explains how she was pro-lockdown to the extreme, even refusing to attend meetings with those who opposed her perspective….

 

Earlier in the book, Birx admitted to “devis[ing] a work-around for the governor’s reports,” where she claims she would “reinsert what [the White House] had objected to, but place it in… different locations. I’d also reorder and restructure the bullet points so the most salient—the points the administration objected to most—no longer fell at the start of the bullet points. I shared these strategies with the three members of the data team also writing these reports. Our Saturday and Sunday report-writing routine soon became: write, submit, revise, hide, resubmit. Fortunately, this strategic sleight-of-hand worked. That they never seemed to catch this subterfuge left me to conclude that, either they read the finished reports too quickly or they neglected to do the word search that would have revealed the language to which they objected.”

Shame Is Not Your Portion

By Russ Walden

 

The Father says today, shame is not your portion. You will never be put to shame or put to flight, says God. I have made your feet immovable, and I have taught your hands to battle and your fingers to make war that you might go out in the anointed process of My ordination to achieve and acquire and to conquer all the enemy throws at you. 

 

The hand of the wicked may be strong, but from the hand of the evil this day I rescue you that you might sing the song of testimony and the anthem of salvation for I Am your Rock and your God, and you will not be turned away from that which I’ve promised you this day.

 

Remember that the things you can see are changeable, but those not seen are eternal. With the sword of your mouth, you are changing the seen and shaping the unseen so that restrictions give way and provisions come. 

 

I Am provisioning you for the journey and causing you to cross over from lack and want to surplus and blessing; even the benefit accorded all those who walk in My favor, says the Father – so rejoice! You are coming up, and you are coming out into all that I have promised even this day.

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 

 

 

 

BEING AWARE OF THE ENEMY'S SCHEMES

 

Words of prophecy:

 

*___The ability of the Enemy to formulate schemes successfully against My children is not greater than My children to "rise above" those schemes victoriously - through continual fellowship with Me [and My Word] in the "inner chamber" [the High Place].

 

        ...."Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God".... Colossians 3:1-3 NASB

 

        ...."In righteousness you will be established; You will be far from oppression, for you will not fear; And from terror, for it will not come near you. If anyone fiercely assails you it will not be from Me. Whoever assails you will fall because of you. Behold, I Myself have created the smith who blows the fire of coals and brings out a weapon for its work; And I have created the destroyer to ruin. No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me, declares the LORD".... Isaiah 54:14-17 NASB

 

        ...."Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world".... 1 John 4:4 KJV

 

___ Being aware of the Enemy's schemes BEFORE they happen is dependent upon one staying close to the Father and His Word in the "inner chamber", daily. As one is faithful to do this on a consistent basis THEN the Word of God - which is living and active - continually exposes and points out the deepest motivations of their heart. This positioning also helps us to be aware of the Enemy's schemes before we speak or act on them - as the Spirit of wisdom and revelation will reveal it.

 

___For instance, when one spends the necessary time with the Father then, when they are suddenly confronted by some difficult situation the words that come out will be the right words for the situation instead of the fear-filled or self-serving words or actions that can spring out of any ground of fear in the heart if we have not received the necessary Grace for the day in the Presence of God.

 

___...."For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life [soul] and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart".... Hebrews 4:12 The Amplified Translation

 

___...."for we are not ignorant of his [Satan's] wiles and intentions".... 2 Corinthians 2:11b The Amplified Translation

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

___Father, we thank You and praise You that we are NEVER ignorant of Satan's schemes - against us or against those in our "sphere of existence". We proclaim that we are an "alert" people - a people You can use to devastate the works of the Enemy at EVERY turn. And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory.

I needed to hear this today. Its been sooo very difficult for a long time honestly asked God if I was the toxic one and just didn't realize it so I could repent

12.01 | 04:32

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.
