God is speaking about forgetting preceding fruitfulness yet the latter promoted over the former.
God MAKES us doubly fruitful or double for your FORMER trouble.
Here is is again today returning and remembering the LORD does all this.
Now before the year of famine came, two sons were born to Joseph,
whom Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of On, bore to him.
Joseph named the firstborn Manasseh,
“For,” he said, “God has MADE me forget all my trouble and all my father’s household.”
He named the second Ephraim,
“For,” he said, “God has MADE me fruitful in the land of my affliction.”
The release is already ours in Christ Jesus HE purchased our freedom.
We are commanded to praise for it SILENCES the enemy
it brings great confusion to their camp
Vexatious and confused they turn on themselves
without remedy, FINISHED.
He is ready to avenge all disobedience (and disorder and chaos) when our obedience
(done in reverential awe and love of HIM) is made complete.
We are made complete in His perfect love in Christ Jesus sacrifice.
We share in Christ’s sufferings and share in His glory.
This is the SEASON of EPHRAIM.
But before Ephraim was the lesson Manasseh, the elder brother
which that lesson learned prepared
Joseph to give God all the glory honor and praise for the double blessing!!!!!!
God was faithful and true to the dreams HE gave Joseph as a child,
God promoted Joseph over all his brothers and the whole world except for Pharoah himself
GOD MADE JOSEPH
LIKE A FATHER TO PHAROAH.
He keeps bringing this lesson to me.
Consider Joseph’s life
Jacob gave Joseph his plans through status and favor
God gave Joseph His vision through dreams
Through bitter envious hateful jealousy, Joseph’s brothers sought to steal, kill or destroy both!
God accompanied Joseph through it all, from start to finish
And it came to pass as God revealed in dreams and manifest on earth as in heaven.
God is Faithful and True.
He is looking for one who will remain faithful and true to Him enduring all for His name’s sake.
I am learning that the Law is a two-edged sword; you can obey it to the letter
and yet anyone, anytime can accuse you without cause
for anything just for malice.
To destroy your reputation and potentially cause harm to your family
who are dependent on you for their spiritual, physical, emotional and financial WELL-BEING. There is absolutely zero regard for another!
Plain disgusting selfishness which in a word is SIN.
God is doing an eye-opener and training His children through discipline
for what’s coming in these last days on earth as the wicked continue to chisel away
at the foundations of what is noble, true and of good report.
We are the Daniels in the lion’s den and as Daniel’s three friends in the fiery furnace.
FOR FAITH MUST BE TESTED TO SEE IF IT IS GENUINE
THE TRYING OF YOUR FAITH IS MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD
TRIED IN THE FURNACE
AS SILVER TRIED IN THE EARTHEN FURNACE THE WORD OF THE LORD IS
PURIFIED AS SILVER, SEVEN TIMES
And the lesson I’m starting to learn (just one chapter in a text)
we will remember Whose we are no matter how insane the world becomes
we are His Witnesses to the Truth and His Word endures forever
He is the Only One Righteous and Eternal.
Everyone will receive their proper reward or reckoning from His hands
and no tom-foolery escapes His notice.
But there are those that will not repent, we just don’t know which will or won’t.
Like the changing of the laws in our land today towards insanity and immorality and total chaos,
it starts with the children and family
either towards God’s COVENANTAL unfailing love of a Father
upside down what COVENANTAL love really is.
Jesus turned the tables.
His disciplined (disciples) were said to have “turned the whole world upside down”
but rather it is the ways of wickedness that view God from a distorted perspective.
His way is the truth and life.
Apart from Him there is no other.
In looking at the enemy’s ways we see how words and names are strategic
I am seeing and hearing TRUTH from the Word of God.
Drawing STRENGTH seeking His face in prayer and praise,
Praise silences the enemy in great confusion.
He spoke a Word but even though it did not yet come to pass
I am clinging to His Word.
He speaks in terms unknown to me but through His training,
revealing the end from the beginning
for Jesus is the Beginning and the End
and He never leaves or forsakes His.
He is Faithful and True and so we will remain in faith, waiting on the Manifestation in due time.
As we pray and praise according to His Word, people are delivered from bondage.
LOT was vexed night & day by his wicked neighbors
YET Abraham prayed and the Lord sent His angels to deliver Lot!
Vexatious has to do (by definition) with DIS-order and confusion
Psalm 25, Romans 8 and 2 Chronicles 20
teach the power of prayer and praise according to God’s Will
great confusion comes on the enemies’ alliance against the children of God
and yet His children have great peace because they love HIS law.
HIS law which is perfect
the CONTRAST is not between our “keeping” so carefully MAN’S laws
but living in the freedom of the true sons of liberty for who the Son sets free is really free!
We obey God’s commands because we love Him who gave His Only Begotten Son for us.
Innocence can be perverted or distorted by a LIAR
to LOOK bad in the sight of man
BUT GOD SEES the HEARTS of ALL.
We are only righteous in the Only One Righteous
He is that Judge and Advocate and our Defender!
And the Pure in heart SEE GOD.
He is weaning me from the mindset that held to the belief in the good of man’s law
to cling to the Spirit of Truth which is well-pleasing to God.
Daniel (דָּנִיֵּאל) The whole name Daniel would mean something like “God Is My Judge” or, more interpretively,
God Rules Me
Hananiah (חֲנַנְיָה), “Yah (i.e., Yahweh) is gracious“,
Mishael (מִישָ אֵל), “Who is like God?”
Azariah (עֲזַרְיָה), “Yah has helped“,
but by the king’s decree they were assigned Chaldean names,
so that Hananiah became Shadrach,
Mishael became Meshach and
Azariah became Abednego and Daniel (Belteshazzar)
The Lord knows us all by name and we are told that He is giving a new name to those who overcome.
Being adopted, this I understand.
“Let the person who is able to hear, listen to and follow what the Spirit proclaims to all the churches.
To the one who conquers through faithfulness even unto death, I will feed you with hidden manna
and give you a white stone. Upon this stone, a new name is engraved.
No one knows this name except for its recipient.”
It’s all about learning how to follow His voice in faithful love
in the doing, we are blessed in having our hearts washed by His Word in Purity
THIS IS HOW THEY WILL SEE HIM MANIFEST
while there’s time for repentance.
But I will confess to you that it is a battle of the mind
and heart even as Jacob wrestled at Penuel
but it keeps coming home to me that any other view is not worthy
it is worth less.
“God is not punishing you.”
it is discipline of a loving Father
it is training,
it is correction for our benefit!
Unruly children don’t reflect well on their parents.
He is ready to avenge all disobedience when our obedience is made complete.
He is completing us in HIS unfailing love IN Christ and He said, “It is FINISHED.”
The Lord will perfect that which concerns me.
Jesus is the Author AND Finisher of FAITH.
His perfect love displaces all fear.
Like Joseph learned,
There’s no harbor for negative, speculative thoughts
because the unfailing love of God is being poured out in AND through my heart
to help others too.
Mercy triumphs over Judgment
Judgement only comes if we don’t REMAIN faithful. (sings Jake Hamilton)
In returning and rest is your quietness and strength.
Behold what manner of LOVE the Father has bestowed on us,
that we should be CALLED children of God!
1 John 3:1
The Lord knows those who are HIS (2 Timothy 2:19)
So Moses said to Aaron, “Take a jar and put an omer of manna in it.
Then place it before the LORD to be kept for the generations to come.”
to them I will give within my temple and its walls a memorial and a name better than sons and daughters;
I will give them an everlasting name that will endure forever.
The nations will see your vindication, and all kings your glory;
you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the LORD will bestow.
You will leave your name for my chosen ones to use in their curses;
the Sovereign LORD will put you to death, but to his servants he will give another name.
Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died.
Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.
Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
The one who is victorious will not be hurt at all by the second death.
The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it.I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem,
which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name.
And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders.
No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth.
His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns.
He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.
On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords.
BE FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE CROWN OF LIFE
Creation is waiting for MANIFESTATION of sons of God.
the glorious liberty, freedom!
He is ready to avenge…
COMPLETE in Christ the firstborn of many brethren
Christ in you the hope of God’s glory!
The glorious Kingdom!
Where the Spirit of the Lord is THERE is freedom!
Shammah as the Bride the heavenly Jerusalem
We are dancing on the dust of the enemy’s face ground into dust.
Everywhere you place your feet you TAKE the Kingdom!
Religious Rules don’t Recognize what God has done in Christ Jesus–
our Kinsman-Redeemer secured our Release from the curse of sin and Death!
He is the Resurrection and the Life!
We are co-heirs with Christ and the love of God is poured out in our hearts by His Holy Spirit empowering us to SHARE Him in holy boldness for there is no fear in His perfect love!
We are MADE COMPLETE
in HIS victoriously unfailing love!
As such we are a kingdom of priests enabled to minister God’s saving grace.
Holy instruments of salt and light.
we are not “the law” nor “the judge”
The Lord is in a readiness to avenge all disobedience WHEN our obedience is made complete.
That is only in the place of His perfect love.
