At the mouth of the East Gate in Reservoir Park, in light of both the recent earthquake and hurricane fall out, I was thinking we would see the idols face down in the dirt. Even as the thought was not yet on my lips, my husband voiced it. Yet the Bridegroom stands at the Thresh-Hold allowing His Bride His Finishing Touch. True Love
places the other ahead of ones’ self. When she is ready, nothing will stand in His Way. All will be swept away in the deep waters of their desire for all to be found in Him.
“Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the Seventh day from all his works. And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. Seeing therefore it remains that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: Again, he limits a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. There remains therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:1-16
“According as His Divine Power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he that lacks these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.” 2 Peter 1:3-12
More than a token of His love, the purple and silver bracelet reveals God’s Providence. Prayer is the three-fold cord that binds us together in holy union with His Word. Jesus Christ is Faithful and True and He is the Living Word of God. Prayer is the plummet line, the lineage of Christ’s Household of Faith, His Blood Royal Family.
The purple – God’s Glorious Royal Household, the Power and Authority of His Name, the Inheritance of His True Riches, the Honor and Faithfulness of His Word, and the Eternal Priesthood
“And has made us unto our God kings and priests and we shall reign on the earth. But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.”
Revelations 5:10, Philippians 4:19, Philippians 4:13, Hebrews 12:28
The silver – the Bridal Dowry, His Faithful and True Word, Strengthened Faith, the Spirit’s Revelation of Jesus Christ as Kinsman-Redeemer and Great Shepherd, His Divinity, All Wisdom, Purity
The keys to the kingdom are JOHN 10:10. 10/10 WINS is our holy dial around the “system” – yes the enemy is known as the prince of the power of the air but we are in the world but not of the world – Jesus has prayed and stands praying that we may be “One” as He and the Father are “One.”
“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that fills all in all.”
When we know His Christ and our place in Him, what God joins together no man can tear asunder. We are linked together by Love as co-laborers in His Harvest. Nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The Season of Waiting is coming into the Season of THRESHING!
When the LION ROARS we assemble, we go out to the SHOUT OF EL SHADDAI, it is the SHOUT OF JOY & VICTORY “10-10 WINS!”
The Lion is the Prince of the Tribe of Judah and His roar confirms that this is the hour of His established Word. The hour of the King standing on the Thresh-Hold.
It’s only a matter of TIME. Only what God says “is”, and all else is based on perspective. Where you stand determines your vision. If you are upright in Him, you are steadfast, firm.
We win! “10-10 WINS” John 10:10 shows that we already have the VICTORY for the Battle belongs to the LORD. Jesus has already conquered sin and death and all of God’s promises are Yes and AMEN to the glory of God the Father in Jesus Christ the SON!
CHILDREN ARE RETURNED (PAST TENSE) TO THE LORD! DONE DEAL.
Jesus Christ is TRUTH. Jesus Christ is the LIVING SON of God. He is the LIVING WORD.
By the power of His Holy Spirit, He spoke CREATION into BEING. Man does not live by bread alone but by every living Word of God, in Him we live, move and have our being!
His Word always accomplishes what it is SENT to do.
He is watching over His Word to perform it SPEEDILY!
Miracles. Captives set free. Prodigals returning.
The SEASON OF DOUBLE HARVEST in nearly upon us! We are standing on the thresh-hold.
The season of threshing bringing in the harvest of the LORD – souls for His kingdom. We hold fast so that no one seizes our crown of rejoicing in the LORD. A HOLY THRESH-HOLD.
No one snatches them out of Jesus’ hands
IT IS WRITTEN AND GOD IS NOT A MAN THAT HE CAN LIE!– whatever lies the devil has been “feeding” are being exposed!
The devil is only baiting to switch you out of God’s kingdom IF it were possible but we have prayed for you that your faith will STAND in Jesus who is interceding. He STANDS in the GAP between us and the Father and there is NO DISTANCE!!! NO GAP! Only the LOVE of GOD working by FAITH in the Son, the WORD, the PROMISES of ALMIGHTY GOD! The shout of El Shaddai – HIS GRACE is enough!
“Thus says the Lord GOD; The gate of the inner court that looks toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the Sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened. And the prince shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate without, and shall stand by the post of the gate, and the priests shall prepare his burnt offering and his peace offerings, and he shall worship at the threshold of the gate: then he shall go forth; but the gate shall not be shut until the evening.”
The bracelet was the Overcomer’s love offering, His heavenly strategy: PRAY CONTINUALLY! Know who you are in Him!
Like Queen Esther whose true identity is in her Lord and Savior.
If we live or die it is unto the Lord!
MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE & THEY FOLLOW ME,
THE VOICE OF ANOTHER THEY WILL NOT FOLLOW.
As we were returning home, there was a bumper sticker on a van that the Lord used to strengthen my heart and confirm His Word:
Your life has seemed like a long journey with many changes of fortune but the answer is not found in an intellectual quest or emotional wandering but in looking to Me, the Author and Finisher of your Faith! Salvation is of the Jews and Jesus is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, He is your Peace. Look to Him and live! The enemy has infected the world with his stinking thinking that you must divide to conquer but the Kingdom of His Peace is only found in One Lord. When we come together as One in Him, our hearts united in reverential awe of His Glorious Majesty and Wonder, we Integrate & Conquer.
We are more than Conquerors in Christ Jesus who loved us & gave Himself for us.
Jesus is the Victor; we are only victorious in Him.
“For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou may be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him. Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.
I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee. Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusts in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about. Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.” Psalms 32:6-11
May the words of this song by Jason Upton be our prayer as we join together as One in the Lord:
Glory Come Down
Father, listen to our earnest prayer
Jesus prayed it years ago
That the glory You had given Him
We would somehow come to know
So make us one according to Your plan
As in heaven it will be
Fill us with the truth and righteousness
You desire the world to see
Let Your glory and honor
Fall on our face
Rest in this place
The church is sick and need of God alone
And people we must seek His face
If we turn from all our unrighteousness
He’ll forgive our evil ways
So may the eyes of God be on us here
Lord, revive us by Your grace
Holy Spirit be forever near
Saturate us in this place
Let Your glory and honor
Fall on our face
Rest in this place
Let the fire fall
Let the wind blow
Let the glory come down
To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God” (Revelation 2:7).
