Thus Sayeth Yeshua, Death Of Loved Ones

Thus Sayeth Yeshua,

You have asked about death my child. When my children pray for a love one, who is dying, to be healed they don’t understand when the loved one dies and is not healed. It breaks my heart to see the tears of my beloved children when they separate from a loved one through death.

If you only knew, my child, how peaceful and beautiful it is on this side, you would pray instead for me to take those you love. My children, in suits of flesh, see through the glass darkly, not yet grasping the wonderful place that heaven really is. Imagine beautiful blue lakes, surrounded by lush green lawns, and the bluest sky you have ever seen with cool breezes ruffling the leaves of lush, full green trees. The atmosphere is peaceful and calm and waves of joy pulse through each person constantly.

I understand you love them so much and your life is lonely without them. I know your heart breaks when you remember them with you and all the wonderful things you did. Even mothers that lose babies ache to feel them in their arms just once more and cry out to me, “Why, why didn’t you heal my child, Lord!”

Trust me, my child. I am all-knowing and see the life ahead for each and every person. When a decision is made, in the courts of heaven, to bring them home it’s because we are either saving them from pain ahead or releasing them from the pain they suffer here.

You asked about suicide victims. You must not look down on them as not being strong. You need to know that I judge the heart, and I am a loving judge. At the point of suicide the mind is not functioning correctly and things are not as they seem on the outside. They are so burdened down with pain, that they seek release in the only way that makes sense to them at the time.

You would judge differently if you remember that I am the potter. I made everyone of my children. I cannot stop my unconditional love for my children anymore then you can for yours. Always show mercy to those who were not strong enough to carry on and completely release them into my hands.

You earth bound children spend a lot of time thinking about who will go to heaven and who will not. You often shun certain sinners thinking that their sin is the biggest sin there is and thinking for sure when they die they go right into hell. Just like some of you I have some children that are away from me, but remember I made them all! I knew what they were going to do. When these people die their families miss them terribly too. Show compassion to all who grieve the death of a loved one. Leave judgment to me.

There are many, many things you do not understand now, and never will until you are in heaven. These are things too glorious for you to understand yet.

Let the fact that your loved ones who die are now free of pain and happy and completely healed with me, fill your hearts and your spirits. Do you trust me, my child? If so be filled with peace and release the dead into my arms!

One thing you must never forget, love is eternal. You will see your love again when you are reunited in heaven. You are not separated from them forever, just temporarily. Rest in that thought and rest in my peace as you grieve the loss of your loved one.

John 5:24 Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.

Revelation 14:13

13 Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.”

Monday Musings

So many Christians have been under full attack in the past few years. We have lost people we love from our lives, material possessions, reputations, and/or our health.

We feel as if all this brokenness has gotten us to the point of total surrender. We love God and we have determined to never leave His side because He is our only safe harbor.

But, beloved of the Lord, we still haven’t “arrived” yet. We have not, nor will we ever, reach a time where we are left alone. Satan harassed Jesus until the very end. People spoke horrific things to him and spit on Him on the cross.

I see and feel God working in the area of sins we may have battled since childhood. I see God making us more aware of how these things need to go as we ask for a deeper and closer walk with Him.

One area God was speaking to me about yesterday was unanswered prayer. What keeps our prayers from being answered?

For a lot of us it’s conditional love. We simply don’t like some people. They “rub” us the wrong way. In our heads we have a constant dialogue running. The largest huddle to jump over is hate. I have asked God to help me to find unconditional love for these people. I ask Him to allow me to see people through his eyes of unconditional love. Hate, gossip, jealousy, not forgiving, all these things HINDER PRAYER.

Have a blessed week!

In His Unconditional Love

Activating Dunamis Power

Do a study on Dunamis. It’s the power of the Holy Spirit that Christ told us to wait for in the Upper Room.

In order for us to operate in Dunamis we need to rid ourselves of ugly soul ties which contaminate our Souls. Pray and fast for the breaking of soul ties.

Things we were once involved with, that we shouldn’t have been involved with, invite those demons in. Drugs, pornography, lust, greed, etc. have demons attached to them.

When we go back to a sin we have laid down what happens?

“When the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, he roams through waterless places in search of rest; and finding none, he says, “I will return to my house which I left.” And when he has come to it, he finds the place swept and clean. Then he goes and takes seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter in and dwell there; and the last state of that man becomes worse that the first.” (Lk 11:24-25).

This is why, when we return to something we shouldn’t return to, it becomes harder to escape each time.

In order to fully operate in Dunamis we have to regularly do housekeeping. The spirit of darkness and the spirit of God cannot cohabitate. They cannot live together. One or the other has to go.

Dunamis Greek translation

1) strength power, ability

1a) inherent power, power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature, or which a person or thing exerts and puts forth

1b) power for performing miracles

1c) moral power and excellence of soul

1d) the power and influence which belong to riches and wealth

1e) power and resources arising from numbers

1f) power consisting in or resting upon armies, forces, hosts

Are People From Your Past Trying To Destroy Your Life?

TwoFaced

Phillipians 3:13-14

Brothers and Sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.

Forgetting what is behind, simply means forgetting the past and straining towards what is ahead simply means I go forward to what God has for me to do. The life God has planned for us has nothing to do with our past.

I recently got a little depressed. Because I know God has completely healed me of depression I begin to pray about it and asked God for knowledge and wisdom to see what was going on.

God began to teach me something that I now would like to teach you.

Do you have people, possibly family, who remembers all the ugliness of your past and still like to torture you over it. They like to use it against you and often try to remind others of it to get them to think less of you too. Sometimes they do it really covertly. Perhaps in a room full of people they like to say how proud they are of you because you no longer do this, that or the other. You cringe. You really didn’t want those particular people to know about your past. If you did you would have mentioned it yourself. Yes, you are blessed that God set you free but that is the past and you want to leave it there because people begin to then associate what they know about your past, with you, and often NOT what God is doing now through you.

It’s especially upsetting when these family members are unsaved and still have all kinds of things going on in their lives that God doesn’t approve of.

I have an interesting testimony in that I was saved and then backslid terribly before I finally totally committed to the Lord almost 20 years ago.

Recently I came to the knowledge that a person in my family has almost single handedly destroyed my relationship with just about everyone in my family of origin. Now this person has not spoken to me in over 17 years. The person has no idea what my life is like, the peaceful life I spend with the Lord, and the fact that I counsel and teach others to also find peace in God, is not even known by this person. I am not exactly sure what I did to make this person despise me, I am not even sure the person knows. The very fact that they can still hurt me with these things can only mean one thing. They are operating under the influence of a demonic spirit. I don’t think they realize that, but thats what it is.

This Winter someone else in my family starting spending time with this man and the next thing you know I began to feel under attack. I was being attacked in my emotions and frankly in my physical health.

It took a while before I realized I was under an attack. Studying this the Lord brought me step by step to what He wanted to show me.

First of all when we go through things in our live’s that are things that open doors to demonic oppression we create situations that allow Satan to be present. When we completely come away from these things and totally commit our lives to God we need to also go through a time a repentance and restoration. What I didn’t realize completely is that there are some people from our pasts that we cannot let back into our lives until they are also totally committed to Christ. Unfortunately these people are often family.

Some people do not want to ever except the fact that a born again friend or family member has changed. To do so would mess up the whole story of their life that they have used to garner self-pity regarding their own lives. People will say, “But you said this that or the other! I thought this person did this, that or the other” They are not willing or wanting to have Christ in their own life. You changing proves it can be done and they don’t want to surrender. They are still in bondage to the sin in their life and they are not ready, maybe they will never be, to get rid of it.

My depression was coming from this person reminding me of things that God says in the Word He has totally forgotten. This person was saying things about me that are not true. I finally realized, as hurtful as it is and as much as I love the person, there is no longer room in my life for someone who finds joy in hurting me.

The past, and most of the people we were involved with there, needs to be just that PAST.

We cannot allow relationship with people who are determined to hate us. It doesn’t matter who they are. Any person who is condescending to us or constantly brings up the past is doing the devils work and needs to go.

Who does God say we are? Thats what matters. Any person with the Spirit of God in them will realize that what this person says is no longer true. What do we need to have fellowship with the darkness for anyway? LET THEM GO.

Pray for the soul-tie with that person to be broken. Pray for God’s cleansing LIGHT to be poured over the part of your body that is physically hurting over the mental anguish this person has caused and then LET THEM GO.

If you are feeling out of sorts, depressed and hopeless, examine your life. Who from your past is still in it? Anything we once had in common with the unsaved is a demon. Friendship with that person, or people who still befriend that person, is not what God wants for us. Why would a true friend, a true Christian, want to associate with someone who puts you down? These people are two-faced. They will keep you around to pray for them or lift them up when they hit rock bottom, which they constantly do.

Watch closely over who you have let in your life. These people are often the cause of your bad feelings. You don’t need them, and the demonic activity they bring with them. Satan uses your kind heart against you. These people need to be left to their own devices. Only when they are truly at the bottom will they come to Christ.

A California Earthquake?

Today while I was praying for my oldest son, who is away from God, and me, I was reminded of something. Was it a warning? Perhaps, we will have to pray about it.

In 1971 we were living in California in the San Fernando Valley, Granada Hills CA to be exact. My son’s birthday was February 8th. For some reason everyone in both of our families forgot his birthday. I was upset about it, and it was before I was saved. Meaning I was more upset about it then I should have been. I was pregnant with my second son and hormonal anyway. I cried most of the day about everyone forgetting Chris’s BD.

The next morning,early on February 9th, 1971, I was awoken by a huge boom! At first I thought a drunk had run into one of the cement pillars under our apartment. It happened frequently as we lived above the parking structure. But as I was contemplating that the earth started to shake violently and I realized we were having a very bad earthquake. We were evacuated shortly thereafter as a dam was damaged and getting ready to burst. We were in the direct path of the gushing water.

I was so scared and I remember thinking to myself, “I can’t believe I was so upset yesterday over nothing because now we are in a life threatening situation. As we say, “ In the blink of an eye everything can change.”

I believe that has been 48 years. They are way overdue for something big in that area. We need to pray about that.

Also, if someone reading this is really upset over something you are going through right this minute, let it go. We never know when things could be a whole lot worse!

Amen?

The Spirit Of Imaginations

Forty years ago I went for Christian Counseling with the pastor of the church I attended at that time.

The pastor said to me, “Cathie, you have a demon of imaginations oppressing you.” I said, “What are you talking about?” He went on to tell me that I was imagining things that were not true in my interactions with other people. He said that Satan was putting thoughts about situations, that were not true, in my mind and I was getting anxiety over these things and then would obsess over something I took personal that someone had said or done to me.

So guess what? I took offense to what that pastor said, thought he was nuts and never went back for counseling with him.

Many, many years after God said the same thing to me and this time it took. I was ready for the pain to go! I confessed my problem to God, got prayed over and started to let God renew my mind.

Now helping others, using what God showed and taught me, is something I do often. Obsessive thoughts of anger and resentment are not living our best lives. God can renew our minds once we admit our thoughts are out of control.

We can start By rebuking Satan for tempting us to abuse our gift of imagination

Let us avoid Eve’s mistake and not imagine things about God that are untrue as a result of Satan’s attacks on our thoughts. Like Jesus when He confronted Satan in the desert, we can rebuke the devil in Jesus’ name and command him to leave us. We will only serve God with our minds and make our thoughts obedient to Christ.

Matthew 4:10 ESV Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve.’”

2 Corinthians 10:5 ESV We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,

A New Level!

It takes a lot of faith to sit with this truth. It hurts so much when God takes someone(s) ,or something, out of your life BUT he’s taking you to another level and on that level the partying, the half-baked, in name only, Christians will not be able to go. On the new level peace is possible in the midst of all kinds of situations that would normally stress you. On the new level God will whisper unto people to bless you and they will be obedient and do that. On the new level supernatural miracles occur daily.

Some of you need to want this level enough to let people and things that are keeping you bound GO!

God started the day telling me this, and he has continued it. This is not about judging anyone. It’s about God saying to you to get it together now, or stay in lack and stay where nothing is changing.

Amen?

Happy Anniversary To The Guy God Sent!

Today is our fourteenth anniversary and the beginning of fifteenth years of marriage. I had been single for five years when I met Chuck. He had been single for seventeen years.

I went to lunch one day and pulled up to the drive up window to pick up my food. While waiting in the line the Lord spoke to me and said, ‘Cathie when you get to the window to pay for your food I want you to take all the money you have in your purse and bless the woman at the window with it!” Being ever the rebel I said to God, “You have to be kidding! I need that money!” And God said, “Give her that money!” Knowing better then to disobey God, I did just that. God knew what he was doing, The woman started to cry. Because of a situation in her life life she desperately needed the extra money.

I drove away telling God, “Okay Lord I claim that money as a seed for a Christian husband. One week later I met Chuck.

Though not actively looking for a husband I wrote down 6 attributes I wanted in a Christian husband. 6 things I would not compromise on. I said he needed to be tall.He needed to have a beard. He needed to have a relationship with God, not just be a pew sitter. He needed to know the Word and be a prayer warrior and He needed to be a giver.

Chuck had all those things. One day while talking on the phone he explained the lineage of Mary, the mother of Jesus. I was hooked. I knew he wasn’t superficial. He KNEW the Word. As we were both Messianic Believers that, to me, was important. Two months later we got married.

The first few years of our marriage consisted of God working out rough edges in both of us. Big Time! When we finally moved forward in love and commitment Chuck went in the hospital for open heart surgery. It didn’t go well. He got a flesh eating virus that ate his sternum and ribs. He almost died twice and, even with insurance, the expenses took all our savings for retirement. We were broke. At the same time the IRS decided to go after us for money they claimed we owed on the house in Denver we had sold. Truly it was the most stressful time of our lives. God helped us one day at a time.

Those incidences bonded our marriage even closer and drove us even deeper into the arms of God. Having nobody but each other to depend on bonded our marriage with strands of Gold!

People say opposites attract. I disagree. Chuck and I spend 24/7 together. We never run out of things to talk about. We study the Word together. We pray together twice a day, sometimes more. We believe our marriage is a covenant with God. The three stranded cord that cannot easily be broken.

God knew what he was doing when he put us together. I praise him for it daily!

Happy Anniversary to my love, the guy that God sent. My partner here and through eternity! I love you with all my heart!

Don’t Lose Hope!

img_4140-1

“For I know the thoughts I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and hope!” Jeremiah 29:11

Recently I watched a video in which the woman was talking about a man she had ministered too. She said, “He walked away with renewed hope.”

I got to thinking about that. Beloved, I truly believe that when you lose hope it’s over. Hope is the thing that goes along with our gift of faith. We hope that things will get better or that something will happen to answer our prayer needs and then that hope stirs up our faith and we begin to feel so much better.

The Word says the following; “Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
    but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:12

Years ago I would look at some situation and in the natural I would think, “Oh, dear Lord this situation is not good! What do I do Lord, what to I say to this person? I don’t want to lie, Father. What do I tell them?” God gently spoke to my Spirit, “Daughter, you are wrong. THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE! What you see as an impossibility is an opportunity to witness to large groups of people who will be astounded when I miraculously answer this prayer! Don’t ever say that again.”

So, I learned to speak hope into people. I learned to be a possibility thinker. When I counsel people they are desperate for just a glimmer of hope, just a Word letting them know that things can and will get better if they only keep the faith.

The problem with a lot of us is that we think in the natural. We look at something and our minds start to figure out what God needs to do to change the situation. Then we start to pray like this, “Dear God please let Sue talk to my boss and tell her that I need a raise.” Instead God works in mysterious ways and he doesn’t need anybody to tell him how to fix a situation. He has ways that our little human brains have not even thought of.

Now when we need answers, He stands ready to guide us. All we need do is ask and then wait for him to direct us.

I have had God tell me to go into car dealerships without a dime for a down payment and bad credit and as I obeyed him, as crazy as it sounds, I walked out with a very nice car. God had sent angels before me to prepare the way. Everything just simply fell into place. When I walked down the hall to see the sales manager I heard Christian music playing. I begin to get excited and I thought “What should I tell him Father?” God said, “Tell him the truth.” So I did. I laid my whole ugly story out in front of him, thinking he would say, “Well, I am so sorry but I can’t help you!” Instead he said, “I know what you are going through. The same thing happened to me.”

Instead of using your time calling all your Christian friends to pray, why waste your time? You are a child of God. You have the spirit dwelling inside you. Pray and seek an answer from God and then when you feel He is directing you in a certain way do what he tells you to do and DO NOT ask anyone else by saying something like this, “Do you think I heard from God when he told me, “this or that?” Because if your friend doesn’t have your level of faith they will say, “You are nuts, why would God tell you to walk into a car dealership without any money and bad credit and try to buy a car!” But we walk by faith not sight. God honors hope and faith. Don’t second guess him just do what he tells you.

Right now it’s Christmas and a whole lot of you are worried sick about how you are going to get gifts for your children and have a family dinner. I have been in that very place, beloved. The thing to do is to get into prayer and praise and wait on the Lord. He is going to direct you. You will go to a store and just what you need will be on sale, you might win something, something might just appear on your doorstep. Be open and be obedient and then wait on God. Do not lose hope. God inhabits(dwells within) our praises. He will either send us what we need or give us supernatural peace in the midst of our situation.

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
    whose confidence is in him.
8 They will be like a tree planted by the water
    that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
    its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
    and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8

Negative talk, and a lack of belief in God’s supernatural miracles, kills hope and squashes faith. You get your faith up by repeating faith scriptures. When God then answers your prayers it increases your faith.

Quit feeling anxious and sorry for yourself. Start praying and praising and believing for a miracle. Tell God to touch the heart of someone who can help you in whatever way God has for you to be helped. Help someone else in the midst of your need and God will help you.

Tell God, “I do not know how you can do this, but I know you will. I rest in your presence and put my worries here at the foot of your cross.”

Do not lose hope. It may be all you have right now but if you are still able to hope you will be helped by the God who owns the cattle on a thousand hills! Nothing is too much for the God who parted the Red Sea! Nothing.

In His Unconditional Love,

Dysfunctional Due To Divorce

One of the things about being an elder is that we have seen things, both good and bad. We have done things, both good and bad, and so hopefully we have learned better and we mentor others to do better.

I was watching the Bush family and their togetherness. It’s admirable.

I know that there are situations that were, and are, hard and sometimes people have no choice but to make a change.

I truly believe, having unfortunately been there, that divorce causes so much dysfunction and remarriages do too.

You have children who don’t like stepparents. It is painful on so many levels, women who are jealous of step mothers, fathers who are jealous of step fathers, children and even adult children, who play one set against the other.

Look around you and maybe in your own life, or some family member, you see constant chaos and dysfunction caused as a result of having to try to get along with people you never asked to have in your life to begin with.

Praying about this today I feel God directing me to encourage those I mentor to try and work things out in your marriages. If you have been through a divorce try your best to be kind to all involved. Don’t badmouth your ex or the new spouse. Try to show love and respect in order to put a stop to a lot of the dysfunction caused by divorce and remarriage.

Most importantly we can avoid all of this by having strong marriages. When we aren’t living for God there is no way we can stay happily married. First of all, if we are single, we should not even date unbelievers. Why? Because we walk into Satan’s territory.

Just my humble opinion, after learning the hard way. I pray none of you will have to suffer through the chaos of divorce!
