And the teachers and those that be wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament and those who turn many to righteousness (to uprightness and right standing with God) shall give forth light like the stars forever and ever. Daniel 12v.3 AMP
Sudden rise to overnight success is usually the result of doing the same thing good better best with no audience for a long time. Long time. We in the Body of Christ that keep believing the Word, speaking the Word and walking in it WILL SHINE. As the world darkens around us, your Joseph attributes will gleam and glisten like a diamond on a black velvet box. The bright,white light of Jesus - The Light of the World - is the Light of your light. So your kind remark, your touch of compassion, your selfless gesture will also bring healing and the timeless allure of redemption to a very lost world. Likewise your stand for Truth & Righteousness will irritate ( and hopefully convict) some of the people you know. Let your light shine! As we wage the good fight of faith to enforce Christ's eternal VICTORY, we are also being sifted in the refining fires of ambition vs. destiny. Do you crave the spotlight or is it for the Glory of God that you step up? Here our David attributes burnish bright and deep as we go from cave worship and ascend to rulership.
Whom are you seeking?...I am He...When Jesus said to them, I am He, they went backwards and fell to the ground. John 18v.6
The Amplified says they "lurched backward and fell to the ground." This was the heathen's involuntary response to who God is. What is our response? I AM THAT I AM is your God. The God over your house, over your health, your family, your destiny. Fall towards Him in praise, in worship and in faith. Believing His Word of Promise because of Who He is.
I have fallen out in the Spirit a few times when I didn't want to. But usually our desire to surrender plays a part in whether we go down or not. We can certainly resist. Choose to fall down before Him in new expressions of worship. Rise up in new strength of WHO HE IS!
Be diligent to know the state of your flocks, and look well to your herds; for riches are not forever; does a crown endure to all generations? Prov.28v23
Is this Proverb only reminding you to balance your checkbook? How goes it with the things and the people entrusted to your care? Is there increase in the lives of those you mentor and influence? Is the Boss better off for putting you in the job instead of that other woman who took the test? Monitor the "drift" factor in your children's lives. Have the currents of life moved them further away from the things of God? I would say the "CROWN" is all the treasure and gifting assigned to you. For you to operate in to the Glory of God but also for you to pass on so that it is replicated and multiplied through and for others. The "FLOCKS" are your tribe, some blood-kin and some BLOOD BOUGHT kin. In the Parade of your life, keep tabs on them now and then so the divine connections prosper as they should.
FATHER: I will not neglect those assigned to my influence. Anoint me with fresh diligence to keep the "CONNECT" divine!
Every fiftieth year,on the Day of Atonement, let the trumpets blow long and loud throughout the land... For the fiftieth year shall be holy, time to proclaim liberty throughout the land to all enslaved debtors, and a time for the cancelling of all public and private debts....What a happy year it will be! Leviticus 25v.8-11
Not enough jubilation in your Jubilee? Still expecting more than you have seen so far -with only a week to go before the New Jewish Year starts October 2nd? What can you do? Years ago I sat in a very famous, very crowded restaurant in Paris with someone who was totally exasperated with our waiter's service. He quietly edged his wine glass to the edge of the table and finally nudged it over the end of the table. PING! The waiter we had been waiting for suddenly appeared.
Nudge your promise to the edge of the table! Believing to be debt-free? Forgive a debt! It doesn't have to be $25,000 but enough where it hurts a little. Faith out there to be free from some legal entanglement? Go pray for someone in jail or in bondage to a disability or sickness. Check on your tithe. Was there a period you couldn't pay or didn't? Catch up on it and Heaven's windows open any year. Be the bridge to someone's miracle and yours will tip over the edge and spill out from Heaven.
FATHER: Don't forget all my Jubilee expectation! Remember me!
The King shall joy in your strength, O Lord...for the King trusts in, relies on and is confident in the Lord...Ps.21; He will behave himself wisely and give heed to the blameless way- O when will You come to him? Ps. 101
Do you want to live under a Solomon President? Where the cloud of God's glory fills the podium during the inauguration? I do. I am asking God to give Trump a Solomon visitation. Are you giving away the crisp, awesome answers to prayer and blessings that crowd our Psalm of the day- Psalm 21? Keeping all that favor for yourself? NO! At this crucial stage of our world, giving Psalm 21 to a national leader is giving it to the next generation. Whether you have grandchildren or not, we all have a legacy of faith we want left in the earth when we go to heaven.
FATHER: Let the intercessory prayers of Your faithful ones who read this BE RECORDED (Ps. 102v.18) that a generation yet to be born shall praise YOU, LORD!
With just one look, you have ravished my heart.... Song of Solomon 4v.9; Because he has set his love on Me, Ps.91
Does your phone captivate you? Does your grocery store captivate your mind with their sale gimmicks? How much of a fight is to wholly focus on the Lord in any given moment? I knew a woman whose polished nails would captivate her- she'd gaze at them oft times through the day! Unless we can steal our captivation back, we will be depleted and denied the rich, abounding ANTIDOTE and REMEDY of God's Presence and Protection.
FATHER: "WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO BE CAPTIVATED BY YOU?" WHATEVER IT TAKES, I WILL DO!
That tiny breeze bringing cooler air here in Houston...That amazing phone call ( or email or dream) bringing a reminder of things prayed and waited for so long...GRAB IT QUICK! Don't go and say you'll get it tomorrow! Take it now. Power shifting in your favor. Can you see it from your house door? By faith agree with God's mighty move. He has moved for you. Make your mind obey. Your spirit has already gotten it and is running on ahead!
FATHER: We will run together! Your new season has changed my life. My future smiling in a close-up! Righteousness and peace have kissed each other and they are telling it (PS.85)
"Test me now in this", says the Lord of hosts," if I will not open for you the windows of heaven..." Malachi 3v.10
Labor Day Mom and I were nausea, dizzy, throat and skin and Center Point came and found broken water heater vent that was repaired. PTL! The symptoms returned ( lighter) and workmen have said there is nothing else they can do; that it would take time for all the fumes to get out of the insulation and vents. PRAISE HIM ANYHOW! But I became desperate as the air worsened last night and we both coughed, gagged. Praying and searching for help, I came across a tip:OPEN THE WINDOW! OPEN THE WINDOW to gain breathing space to exercise your authority over the devil and whatever demonic problem might be before you. OPEN THE WINDOW to a simple solution on the pathway to HEAVEN'S RESOLUTION. Yes, of course, it is TEXAS and I have to run the AC to counter the heat coming in through the window. YES, I have to keep my eye out for the sneaky pests materializing through the window screen. But the window of my spirit is open to HEAVEN'S CREATIVE ANSWER. Monday is my day to worship God as the Self-Existent One (He made all the air molecules, BLESS GOD!)
FATHER: OPEN THE WINDOW for each one who reads these words. Let HEAVEN'S ANSWER POUR IN FOR THEM!
SIEGE - Old French word for SEAT; blockade, from Latin word meaning "to sit"; persistent attack; the placing of an army around or before a fortified place to force its surrender.
But God has quickened us...raised us...made us sit together in heavenly places with Christ Jesus...Eph.2v.4-6
The Bible tells us that Jesus sat down. In the power of His finished work on the Cross, He sat down at the right hand of God. And we are seated beside Him. The devil's siege against the Body of Christ, like Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, is DOOMED TO FAIL. His siege is also UNLAWFUL.
Imagine your seat of government next to Christ's seat. Imagine the demonically fortified seat outside your place of governing, cutting off supply lines or dropping propaganda leaflets over your head, trying to force your surrender. That is where the BOdy of Christ is today Don't give up your seat! Stay in the heavenlies next to Christ and rule and reign with HIs unfailing Word, safe in the power of His Unfailing Love.
We are meant to be the ARMY putting the demons under siege, taking out their prisoners alive. Our forces even setting free some churches are under HOUSE ARREST.
FATHER: What is the exceeding greatness of Your toward us who believe? Eph. 1v.19
He is extraordinarily patient toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn to repentance... II Peter 3v.9; The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger. Ps. 103
I have spent all of today on-call by telephone for foreign language translation for a man from abroad who fell ill suddenly while touring the US with his wife and daughter. He was my patient. 20 calls so far- Dr's, nurses, financial, registration, family members, techs for all kinds of procedures and tests. My meditation scripture was all about God's PATIENCE. LOL! The Holy Spirit has a sense of humor. He wanted me in kindergarten SHOW&TELL about PATIENCE and intercession. Praying for the nations, for our nation, for the lost, with His kind of merciful endurance. He will have NO ONE perish. If you have prayed, can you be patient - like the Farmer God - for the harvest of answered prayer? How long can you wait? Kenneth Hagin said that when you determine to wait as long as it takes for the Word to come to pass, it won't take long.
FATHER: Let patience have her perfect work in me so that I am perfect, entire, wanting nothing (James v.4)
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!
