It is time to awake and realize that the world holds nothing for us and our only really true covering is the Blood of Jesus for our Maker is our Husband. The sanctity of marriage and child bearing and child rearing have long been attacked by the enemy to demoralize and destroy the power of His love. For marriage is a token of the blood covenant and was the tie that bound couples together for the sake of the children and future generations.
It is no small wonder that as the true family values have been weakened and devalued, we are seeing chaos and disorder spread
in every avenue. But there is strength in unity. God commands the blessing when we stand together in our proper order in the position He places us in the family, His household of faith. Christ is the head from whom all the blessing flows covering the entire body including the clothing down to the soles of the feet.
Even out of the mouths of babies and the young suckling, He has perfected praise to still, to silence the enemy! A child of God stands in Christ an overcomer in His redeeming love.
Removing strong holds and the high places that the demons have erected against the knowledge of the Lord of Life definitely is conducive to health and well-being!
Instead of a legion of demons building a strong hold and erecting high places or ramparts, walls to shut out the glory of God, the child of God has a legion of angels camping around him. (Psalm 91)
Just as Jesus spoke to the high winds that threatened to overthrow the boat and to the turbulent waves that sought to pull them under, He is asking us “where is your faith?” Is it in the here and now actively working with He who is the Living Word of Almighty God the Father speaking order and peace into the midst of turmoil and stressful situations?
Salvation is now. We are to praise Him in the storm. It is WELL with my soul. In everything give thanks for this is the WILL of GOD because it is working OUT our faith in fear and trembling for we know that what we are going through is as nothing compared to the cross and eternal separation from God. He has promised to never leave or forsake us. He is with us through it all!
What we are going through is to manifest the glorious powerful love of God. It’s one thing to look at a child of God and say, “sure he believes God he has a cushy little life but not me, my life is a mess” yet it is precisely what you need. You need God to see you through. Your mess is His message. For apart from Him we can do nothing.
And the Lord said to Satan, ‘Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, fearing God — turning away from evil.’ Then Satan answered the Lord,
‘Does Job fear God for nothing?‘”
When everything is going “our” way, the attack Satan makes is accusing us of loving God because of what He has done for us.
Satan is the accuser and he wants it to look like we will desert God like spoiled children going off to sulk.
Hear the accusation:
“If You take Your hedge away — Job will turn against You! If You would allow me to take Job’s happiness and well-being away, You will see Job’s fear and respect for You evaporate into thin air.”
The Father of lies, Satan proposes is that our love and respect for our heavenly Father is contingent upon our happiness and well-being.
Nothing could be further from the Truth. Jesus is the prince of peace – not the temporal easily swayed worldly image of peace but peace that goes through and is not moved. A real tangible force backed by the full power of the love of God the Father.
Yesterday’s tornadoes in Texas, three things stood out to me:
A lady working in a nursing home where damage was sustained, saying “OF COURSE EVERYONE WAS PRAYING!” Buildings and things are temporary but our lives are in God’s hands.
Ironically, there was mentioned that a pastor with babies and daycare children was COWERING in windowless rooms.
Tests, trials, tribulations are all times for His light to shine!
When the violent tornadoes ripped through Indiana and Kentucky last month, the image that stuck with me was of the one WOMAN who stood outside FACING the tornado and calling on the NAME OF THE LORD and praying in His Holy Spirit speaking protection and deliverance in the midst of the storm.
The ironic twist that here is a pastor – who is to shepherd the flock COWERING in a windowless room with the children yet the previous month, the school principal released the bus drivers to carry the children home and they were kept by faith.
Real children of God know whose they are and do not need certification of man or commendation of the world, GOD commands the blessing on them because they walk in agreement with His WORD.
His Word is His great LOVE in Christ Jesus.
Remember the DESTRUCTION AND SPOILS OF WAR BELONG TO THE LORD!
And we are praying casting down strongholds and every high thing that exalts itself AGAINST the knowledge of the LORD
He will be glorified. He will be EXALTED in the earth.
This is how it is going to happen.
If they will not offer PRAISE and THANKS because of who He is they will yet praise the Lord.
O You who hear prayer to You ALL men will come. Psalm 65:2
He calms the storm so that its waves are still. Psalm 107:29
Yesterday while praying a shift came and it was BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD I WILL BE EXALTED AMONG THE NATIONS.
I WILL BE EXALTED IN THE EARTH.
The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live; and when I see the blood I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.
For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life. Leviticus 17:11
How can two walk together unless they be in agreement? (Amos 3:3)
If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all unrighteousness. If we are not walking in the light, we have no warrant for believing that our sins are covered.
Get in agreement with God and His Word. Say what He says. Do not let go of His Word.
Through the shed blood of Jesus Christ and the application of His word, He will sustain you.
The red rope represents the blood and the Word of God, Jesus, written in it and Do not let go.
Forsaking all others keep thee only unto Him, so long as you both shall live? For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
Out of the mouth of two or three witnesses is a thing confirmed.
A three-fold cord is not easily broken.
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood
And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.
