And it shall come to pass in the last days, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all mankind..and I will show wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth beneath...Acts 4v.17 AMP
This has been the week of calls for prayer about physical ailments; ailments mostly annoying & aggravating but a demonic pattern appeared nonetheless. While we truly believe we are just about to step into miracles, signs and wonders as God's Spirit is poured out in Great Revival on this earth, we are also walking step-by step past land mines of nagging afflictions and physical encumbrances designed to slow us down. Stepping into the miraculous with a limp? The enemy's primary tactic is to steal the Word of God from our hearts through reproach or discouragement. If he can't bully you into doubting the magnificence of God's Plan because of your wrestling with muscle cramps, he will accuse of faith failure for taking an aspirin! We are the people who will see the transition from this desert time to the flourishing of the Mighty Acts of God. Our faith developed now will help the souls harvested in the coming suddenlies to have a strong foundation and a heart of gratitude. You are being prepared not just to see and be amazed, but also to lead like a veteran champion.
FATHER: Every step I take is heading for Your Miracle!
When the fulness of time had come (KJV); when the proper time had fully come (AMP), God sent His son...Gal.4v.4
Things denied and utterly impossible just a few months ago are coming back around to many of you at this time. Recognize what God is doing- rejoice- and do it with Him. The "full circles" are not taking as long to get back to you, which I see as another sign of the End Times. The Full Circles are certainly nestled among some trying times that the Body Of Christ is overcoming, but don't let the value and wonder of them escape your notice. Be attentive.
FATHER: YOU HAVE BROUGHT IT BACK TO ME! I see and rejoice!
Who shall separate us from the PEACE of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution or famine, or nakedness or peril or sword? Romans 8v.35 (paraphrased); For He Himself is our peace...Eph. 2v.14; And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil.4v.7
It is not Christmas, but this is the time to talk, think, ponder and posses the Peace of God. There simply is no other way to overcome in this day of threatenings. The disciples in a day of threatenings didn't ask to be translated, but they asked:
1.Lord, take note of their threats.
2.Grant us boldness to speak
3.Stretch forth Thy hand to heal and to perform signs and wonders in the name of Thy holy servant, Jesus.
They asked for miracles. And the building shook in answer to their prayers. The peace of God in times of war gives you confidence to pray like that. And this is how we overcome. In the battles of our mind as mental torment is increasing or in financial, physical or family challenges you may face, the Peace of God prepares, preserves and positions for total victory.
Blessings on your week of keeping your mind STAYED on Him (Isa 26v.3)! Peace in your Mind- PERFECT!
Since therefore, brethren, we have confidence to enter the holy place by the Blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh...Heb.10 v.19
This morning I was agreeing with a dear friend that a minister would make it to the hospital bedside of someone special needing healing and salvation on this rainy day. There had been some delays yesterday and during the night last night I had kept their name in "turn-over-in-the-bed prayers" as I would fall back to sleep. "Make a way, Jesus, make a way."
Later this morning, after speaking with my friend, I heard " by a new and living way." How is it going to be? How will the problem be solved, the need met, the door opened? By the new and living way that Jesus made. If God made a way for the Daystar to come and His Son to bring salvation to the entire world, surely we can confidently believe that a new and living way is opened today. Opened for new sons and daughters to be born into Glory. Opened for impossible things that seem padlocked and under heavy demonic guard. Opened for us to draw closer by the Blood of Jesus to come into the holy place where He is.
Father, we have confidence
by the Blood of Jesus
to come into the place where You are
to come into the place where You are...
- remember that little chorus? By a new and living way!
And as a garden causes the things sown in it to spring up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations. Isa.61v.11
About 8 years ago, my cousin left two big shopping bags for her Mom to drop off - one to the cleaners and the other to a local shelter charity for the homeless -. But guess what? The bag full of fabulous pantsuits/blouses from Lord and Taylor- thousands of dollars worth of clothes- never made it to the cleaners. Frantic phone calls to the homeless charity came too late. Her mom was in tears. My cousin was as low-key as a funeral. My family has laughed/hurrahed over this story at many a gathering the past 8 years. But this past Labor Day found both of them- mother and daughter- feeding the homeless and ministering at the shelter. The same one that got the suits by mistake. Suits were sown and God caused ministry to be raised up! I am not saying you have to lose your suit to fulfill the purpose of God! There is a sacrifice required, but He wants us to give it willingly. Ministry was already in the my cousin's heart and she did forgive and "give away" the suits that were given away by mistake. What is the Lord saying? He does not forget one tiny seed. It won't be wasted! He remembers the seeds you have sown ( some with tears) and your dreams, your ministries and your giftings will indeed spring up before all nations!
Father: Cause Your purpose in me to spring up before all nations!
Join me Saturday as we welcome the powerful ministry of Pastor Lenda Crawford, at HBU's Cullen Parlor, 7502 Fondren, Houston, TX 77074. 10:00am to 12 noon.
So the people shouted, and the priests blew the trumpets; and it came about...that the wall fell down flat, so the people went up...Chap. 6v.20
The Conquest of Jericho! It didn't start off looking like a great victory. A huge walled city and the first steps of God's strategy were strange. On the first of seven days of marching around the city, the Bible says the priests "went on continually." A similar moment is what I am sensing in my spirit for us this September. This is the victory? Like gazing at a funny newborn, it is hard to look in the face of the VICTORY I hear Heaven declaring for us and recognize any resemblance to our dream. But, believe me, that same MIGHTY force that will cause the enemy's walls to implode and come down will LIFT US UP! I am particularly struck by the words " went on continually" in verse 13. Keep going on continually in what He has told you to do. I smell victory like organic, uncured, Canadian bacon frying (grilling?) in the kitchen of your mountain lodge vacation home. To my eyes, it is still unrecognizable, but my heart of faith is bearing witness with the Spirit of God. Prepare for victory as you go on continually marching around the walls!
In Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Col.2v.3
When the alarm went off at 4:00am, this scripture was part of my wake-up call - that I still snoozed way past! (Oh, my!) When I woke up again, He mercifully brought it back to my remembrance. Mom and I are hunting a minivan and my hunt, like yours for whatever you require, must start in Christ. Our prayer time is the day's treasure map. We find Him first and in Him, we find everything. He is our treasure hidden in a field ( Matt. 13v.44).
FATHER: Show me the way to today's treasure!
Blessings on your week of finding wisdom and knowledge in Christ! Plan to join us Saturday Sept 13 for MLYA's first fall meeting with Lenda Crawford sharing hidden treasure!
Love you guys,
LEE'S WORD FOR TODAY 1/6/17
SEPARATE FROM PAST BAGGAGE, DIVORCE OLD SIN, MARRY NEW FUTURE IN CHRIST!
Lee's Word for Today 1/6/17
from past baggage
NEW FUTURE IN CHRIST!
And Lot also, which went with Abraham, had flocks and herds and tents. And the land was not able to bear them, for their substance was great...And Abraham said,
"Lot, separate thyself, I pray thee, from me." Genesis 13v.5; ...forgetting what lies behind, straining for what lies ahead. Phil.3v.13
You can't take it with you. "It" means your (unfruitful) way of thinking, your old " it ain't working" way of working. Abraham's nephew was a dear relative, they had so much in common, so many sweet or tough memories shared. How long before we get God saying, "Separate from your old way. There is a new way."
As always with God, you must obey the first step (separate, leave the baggage, drop it,) before the land under your foot's path for the 2nd step appears.
And the Lord said unto to Abraham AFTER that Lot was separated from him:
Lift up now thine eyes from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward. For all the land that thou seetst, to thee will I give it...v.14-17
FATHER: Show me Your new way today! I PRESS TOWARD THE PRIZE!
Love you guys more than you know,
Will you keep silent at this time, Queen Esther? Now that you have prevailed before the King and your petition for deliverance for you and your nation from the evil Haman Hillary, will you decree, reign and use your authority? Not many days hence, about 30, the inauguration of the President God chose and we died for (died to pizza and blueberry pancakes, died to distractions to cry out, some died to fear of voting Republican for the 1st time!)) will be inaugurated.
Though the media is attempting to spread dishonor and rebellion,your intercession for FULL MORDECAI HONOR will crown the event and will also REAP HONOR for you. The honor you intercede for in these 30 days to January 21 is the degree of honor that will (or won't) come to you in the New Year. God is teaching us to reign in this extraordinary season, this amazing Last Days Age. Can you honor a husband if God gave you one, a boss, a mother-in-law, can you honor the Office of the President or the Plan of God? Skimping on honor at this time, will skimp on the Glory of God!
When God's choice is fully honored, - as Mordecai was - God's reward is FULLY given! God gave the people of the nation light ( a new dawn of hope) and gladness and joy and honor.The enemies of the Kingdom were destroyed. Esther 8v.16 Victory is indeed sweet!
....And the king said to Haman/Hillary, what shall be done to the man whom the king delights to honor?...Haman answered... Let royal apparel be brought which the king has worn(NOTE: THE ANOINTING)
And the horse which the king has ridden
(NOTE: same as David's instructions for Solomon's inaugurations for David's mule to be ridden)and a royal crown be set upon his head.
Let the apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king's most noble princes. Let him array the man (NOTE: divine order- Mordecai was not putting king's robe on himself- but nobility and established order robing him) whom the king delights to honor and conduct him on horseback through the open square of the city(NOTE: We need to pray for the city- the sea of people to OPEN to Trump and not resist him whom Our king has appointed.)Esther 6v.6-9
The King's instructions in Esther 6v.10 Do so to Mordecai the Jew (Make it happen).
Leave out nothing that you have spoken. (Don't mess this up.)
We need a full Mordecai inauguration. Esther (the church) has prevailed before the King.We won. We Arise, We Shine for Our light has come!
