A Word For The Discouraged

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.  1 John 4:1

Not all that glitters is gold, is a cliché that a lot of us grew up with. Yet, still in this day and age, we get fooled often because we want to find the perfect relationship, perfect job, and we want joy in our lives.

We often spend a lot of time praying for our miracle, and then when we “think” we have it, we start ignoring all “red flags” and we are sure that this person, job or “thing” is from God. Then when things turn out badly, we turn around and blame God.

I have finally gotten to a point in my walk, where I never blame God when things go wrong. I know, without a doubt, that all things that happen in my life that are less then perfect, are because I wanted something and didn’t take the time to pray over the situation or they come directly from the hand of the devil.

The devil is the enemy of the soul of every single Christian. Like he did with Job, the devil studies us to find out area’s of our weaknesses and that is where he hits us.

Sometimes it feels, these days, as if we barely get through one rough time before another one is on our doorstep. We get tired and we get weary, and we become more vulnerable to taking the first solution we see that might be an answer.

Psalm 34:18 tell us the following:

“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”

When we are suffering in our emotions, or health area’s, because of a poor decision we made, that should be a clue to us to take our own inventories. When faced with the consequences of bad decisions, it’s important to ask ourselves what pattern in our lives are we constantly repeating? If we can pinpoint that pattern we can save ourselves a lot of pain.

 I counsel people sometimes who get so tired and weary with doing everything alone, that they look at the first person that comes along as someone who can rescue them. Having been a single mom for years I understand. But when I help someone who has rushed into a situation that turned out badly, out of desperation, I counsel them to trust in God in the future and not another frail human being.

It’s the same with bad jobs. We need money, we have to eat and pay the bills and so we jump head first into the first opportunity that presents itself only to say to ourselves later, “I hate this job!”

What God has shown me is that we must get to a point that we trust God, more then other people, to be the solution to our problems. Trusting God means we can sit still and wait until the right opportunity presents itself.

Trusting God means we can pray for wisdom and discernment before making life-changing decisions.

Satan doesn’t tempt us with things that don’t look good. He brings something around, wanting to destroy us, that looks just like what we have been praying for. We often forget that we are in a battle for our souls, and don’t even consult God prior to making important decisions. Satan can make things look good for us that are not in our best interest.

“And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11:14

The most important thing in the world, for the Christian, should be our relationship with God. When we spend a lot of time with Him each day, in prayer and the Word, we become more keenly aware of anything that comes our way that isn’t of Him.

I often say that our relationship with the Lord is like any other relationship. The more time we spend with someone the more we get to know his or her personality. We know what they like, and what they don’t like.  That’s why our personal time spent with God each day is so important. We begin to know what He is like, and when something or someone comes along that is not like Him; we will have much better discernment.

Satan’s tactics have not changed one bit. In the Garden of Eden he starts to mess with Eve’s mind. She listens to him, and thinks, “I guess he is right, God won’t care if I eat that apple.” Confusion sets in, and sin follows. Spending time searching the scriptures for answers tell us what God likes and what He doesn’t. If we can keep our minds full of God’s Word we will have better defense against being tricked into things by Satan.

The past is over, and we all blew it in one way or another in the past. We need to forget bad decisions, and get over it. We can’t change the past. The future can be better when we learn what God wants and stay in obedience to His rules, whether we like them or not.

Obedience brings true blessings! Beloved, today if you need to make a decision DO NOT do anything out of desperation. God has your answers, and He is more then willing to supply our needs when we ask Him!

Wait on the LORD!

Father, Help us to make Godly decisions today, and everyday. Give us wisdom, discernment and clear heads when making life long decisions. Thank you for being near to us 24/7. When we call, You answer us and send angels before us to prepare our way! In Your Name, the Name above all names we pray. Amen and Amen

May God be with you today, May He guide you and keep you safe from the wiles of the devil!

Crucification Of Your Soul

The day before yesterday I was talking to someone who had been through living hell. Trusting someone who claimed to be a Christian and then destroyed *** trust. There was a lot more to it, and this person was a mature Christian with a lot of discernment.

I have said it before and I am going to say it again, these end time demonic spirits occupying empty shells are strong but greater is God who is in us then Satan who is in the world.

Being restored to God after a hard situation often leaves us broken and wondering why God allowed it in the first place if he loves us.

But, beloved of the Lord, Jesus understood that he would go through a whole lot of pain. Even though he knew that, at the end of his earthly walk, he said to the Father, “Father if possible let me escape this, HOWEVER, not My will but thy will be done.”

At the end of His horrible painful death he rose again to life! The ending was worth the pain!

You who have been through soul crucification need to know that the purpose for this was so you would come out of this with more wisdom and more understanding so that you could love and show compassion to others experiencing horrible betrayal and rejection too.

The Father trusted that the son was strong enough for His mission and likewise the Father knew you were strong enough to not only survive but, in the end, thrive through your horrible experiences.

Throw off the clothes of grief and go forward to help others who have suffered what you went through. God will restore you and replace, doubly, all you lost!

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 Word Of Warning!

Warning**** If you are easily upset, please read no further*****

Wow! I very seldom give warning prophecy. I very seldom give it when I can’t tell anyone what exactly to be on guard about but today I am going to do just that.

I woke up early after having a very demonic dream. I lay there in bed and tried to figure out that dream, while asking God for discernment and peace. Finally I fell back to sleep and had two more horrible dreams, one right after the other.

I forced myself to awake. When I did I could still sense the evil atmosphere around me. I had to go into deep prayer in tongues. Prayer and PRAISE.

I realized I had escaped the realm of sleep in which we are passive and the evil one can and does torment us.

I believe the reason we have been hearing so many prophets and preachers warning to get junk out of our lives and live a higher level of holiness is because all hell is beginning to be unleashed on the world. A demonic horde that is worse then what we have seen before.

Something bad is coming. I believe it is going to be seen world wide as 9-11 was seen worldwide.

Get right with God, Our only refuge. The children of God, staying close to him, will be able to escape. Just barely, as I did in my dream atmosphere this morning.

Get your house in order. Spiritually and physically!

I hate this kind of warning. I know people would rather hear encouragement but I am releasing this Word as I feel God wants me to do so.

Shalom!

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?

Joel 2:25-26

I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the hopper, the destroyer, and the cutter, my great army, which I sent among you. “You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, who has dealt wondrously with you. And my people shall never again be put to shame.

Jeremiah 30:17

For I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will heal, declares the Lord, because they have called you an outcast: ‘It is Zion, for whom no one cares!’

Job 42:10

And the Lord restored the fortunes of Job, when he had prayed for his friends. And the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.

1 Peter 5:10

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

Zechariah 9:12

Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope; today I declare that I will restore to you double.

Vindication

Deuteronomy 32:36

“For the LORD will vindicate His people, And will have compassion on His servants, When He sees that their strength is gone, And there is none remaining, bond or free.

Isaiah 54:17

“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.

Jeremiah 51:10

The LORD has brought about our vindication; Come and let us recount in Zion The work of the LORD our God!

Psalm 35:27

Let them shout for joy and rejoice, who favor my vindication; And let them say continually, “The LORD be magnified, Who delights in the prosperity of His servant.”

Isaiah 50:8

He who vindicates Me is near; Who will contend with Me? Let us stand up to each other; Who has a case against Me? Let him draw near to Me.

The Tables Have Turned

Yesterday I felt as if God wanted me to meet him for a Word. I turned off the TV, put down my IPad and started to pray in tongues. Almost immediately God gave me a vision. The room began to glow and I was looking at the heavenlies.

I saw a veil that Satan and his demons were holding between themselves and warring angels. God said, “Daughter listen!”

As I listened I begin to hear prayers, frantic prayers, being prayed in desperation for what sounded like impossible situations.

God said, “WATCH!” As a watched more warrior angels,then I had ever imagined, charged full speed at the veil, over and over they pushed and suddenly they broke through the veil Satan had placed to keep prayers from God’s ears. A huge roar of victory was heard in the atmosphere as the angels rushed to go to the side of each person praying. The atmosphere was alive with promise of answered prayers!

I looked at God and he looked me and shouted, The tables are turning! WATCH as those who have oppressed my children now eat from the bitter dish they served my people’s.

The Tables Have Turned!

According the Oxford English Dictionary, if you “turn the tables” on someone, it is generally understood that you have reversed the fortunes in your favor to some capacity, so as to “reverse one’s position relative to someone else, especially by turning a position of disadvantage into one of advantage.”

Vindication Now Says The Lord God

The Lord has been speaking to me this evening about vindication.

To vindicate means to clear someone of blame or suspicion.

God spoke to my heart that some of us have been right with him, living for him, for years. Yet there are people in our lives that are still holding the past against us. Family and friends who refuse to give up the past and constantly hold on to things they shouldn’t hold on to. Satan has been using the things these people do and say to break our hearts. Things that are no longer who we are or being used against us.

God is getting ready to vindicate his people. Those who have lied about and tried to hurt the people of God are getting ready to have the tables turned on them. God is no longer going to sit back and allow those who are His beloved children to be abused by these heartless hypocrites.

Get ready, beloved of the Lord! You stand at the door of vindication and woe to those who keep using your past against you! ENOUGH says the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob!

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!

A Warning Dream?

My absolute favorite worship song is “Way Maker” I had the most wonderful encounter with the Holy Spirit last night in a way I had not experienced before. I kept waking up off and on last night, tossing and turning, as I would wake, each time, I heard the sound of angels singing Way Maker. That is one of the most anointed worship songs I have ever heard and God was literally soaking me in it all night long!

God is up to something! I feel a great revival is coming but prior to that something is going to happen that will literally rock our world. Stay close to God and never fear because he surrounds His children with angels!

Last week I dreamed that I was hearing hail falling on the roof. It started to get louder and louder. I opened the door and saw huge rocks, even boulders, falling everywhere. In the dream I heard God say, “Close the door and stay inside!” I closed the door and as I did I felt the earth tremble and shake back and forth. I awoke in a cold sweat! It was one of those dreams where you are so glad when you awake and realize it was only a dream.

I have not received, to date, an interpretation of the dream. I do know it may not have been an actual earthquake but perhaps a warning that something is coming that will literally rock our foundation. I will wait on the Lord. As I said the other day…Stay alert.
