NEVER ENOUGH

In this world we feel as if we are never enough.  Never pretty enough, never strong enough, never loved enough, never cared for enough, never smart enough, we don’t have enough stuff, we need the latest and greatest…But through Jesus Christ we are enough.  We are loved enough, we are cared for enough, we are smart enough, we are strong enough, we don’t need all the “stuff”.  I thank God that he loves me so much just as I am.  I don’t have to carry on an act anymore since finding God.  I have found that I don’t need or even want the things I use to think I wanted or needed.  I have such a security in being Gods child!  A security I have never had in the world.  Imagine all the pressure that was taken from me when I got that revelation…GOD LOVES ME JUST AS I AM.  I cant earn my way to heaven or in Gods good graces, so I don’t have that pressure to perform for him either.

About a month ago, a dear brother finally felt God’s great love envelope him.  He described to me how it felt.  This is what he said, “I felt a love that I had never felt before, I felt peace, security, joy, and hope.  I have never known God really loved me like that.”

We can know that God loves us but until Gods love envelopes you, you will not truly KNOW his love.  Gods love is not something that can be taught.  We were taught to love incorrectly in the world so the love that we know is not the correct love.  Its not the love that God has.  Until someone experiences God’s love, our minds can not comprehend this love.  True love…

Lord God I pray that who ever reads this receives a burning desire to feel your true love for them.  Lord God that your love would wrap around them and engulf them.  Lord God that you would teach them YOUR true love.  I thank you Lord God that you love each person in the world.  That you love them just as they are.  Thank you Lord God, you are good!

Dream earthquake Pacific NW

God keeps pressing for me to share this dream I had 9 years ago.  I briefly described it in my first post.  I am going to share the entirety of the dream.  The dream is still very vivid like it happened yesterday.  Its like the dream is burned into my brain.

I was driving North on I-5 bridge in Oregon/Washington state.  This bridge connects these two states.  The day was an average day.  The weather was like the weather here between the seasons of Spring and Summer.  Not too hot not too cold.  It was sunny out.  I knew the race and car type of the women in front of me.

I knew what I was wearing.  The shirt I was wearing was black with three faces on it.  All three faces were faces of prominent Hispanics who have revolted against their government.  I have always known that these 3 faces on my shirt was important but I didn’t know why or what it meant.  God has been bringing this shirt to my attention the last few weeks.  These three faces represent the time of the earthquake.  It will be a time of unrest or revolt against our government.

I was about midway on the bridge when a massive earthquake struck.  When the earthquake struck I knew that the quake was a 9.+ in magnitude.  The bridge was twisting and my car started to go over the side of the bridge.  I could see the water of the river right below me.  I was going over front first.  Right before I hit the water, I was instantly in a waiting place.  It reminded me of a parking lot.  A big black flat surface with very few people there with me.  I knew that the others with me were all Gods children.  A man walked up to me and handed me a piece of paper with a scripture written on it.  I seen the scripture.  I then woke up.  When I woke up I was in shock.  I ran to my bible and read the scripture.  It was of a massive quake in the West.  I do not recall the scripture any longer.  I wish I could…

This dream is a literal thing that will happen.  Since my dream they have been warning of this happening.  I believe they call it the fault line.  When I first seen a news broadcast about this fault line 2 years ago, I was in disbelief.  They even warned that the quake would be a 9.2 quake.

In the last few weeks God has brought this dream to my attention.  At first it was him speaking to me about the shirt.  Then others that I have come in contact with have brought up a great devastation in the Pacific Northwest.  Others have spoken to me in concern about a great earthquake here.  And most recently they had a mandatory earthquake and tsunami drill in Washington State.   So, I believe that it is time to share this dream.

If there is anyone who is not a child of God.  That doesn’t know him intimately, I urge you to surrender your life to him.  Or if you are someone who is balancing on the fence I pray that the Holy Spirit will speak to you and come upon you.  That you will surrender your life to God.

We only have one shot guys.  Once our physical bodies die, we have a whole other life to live in spirit.

Blessings,

L.

 

Dark spirits appear at opening of Arch of Baal in London — “AllSoulsAreMine”

The sudden erecting of an arch, a replica from the temple of Ba’al (AKA Beelzebub, Bel, Nimrod, Satan) by the UN should be as a sign to the world. Minister Paul, a sweet anointed Brother and ordained Minister in U.S., has had the gift of discerning of spirits since he was a child. In this […]

Redeming Love

I have been thinking about love.  How the world loves, how we love, how God loves, how we love our family our friends.  It’s easy to look at someone else and see how they do not love the way we think they should.  To point out either in our hearts or out loud to someone how they fail.  But have we ever stopped and truly examined ourselves?  I am quick to anger when someone judges me or my family, to hold a grudge.  But is this love?  The bible tells me that this is not love.  Jesus showed us that this is not love.  This does not mean that the person that judges isn’t wrong, but we need to be more focused on ourselves.  After all we can’t change the other person, only God can do that.  So I choose to pray instead of holding a grudge.  God will do the healing of the heart, God will do the prompting.  That is if we allow it.

I like the story in the bible about the adulterer that was going to be stoned.  Jesus stepped in and said to everyone, if you have no sin in your lives then throw the first stone.  Of course no one threw a stone.  In our flesh we all fail.  How am I to judge someone else?  I think it fitting to let God do the judging, after all he is perfect.  He loves correctly.  He reads the heart.

Since birth others have taught me to love.  They told me how much they loved me but would call me names, abandon me, hit me, judge me, show no compassion or mercy and so forth.  Since this is my experience with love, this is how I loved.  But God tells us this is not love.  He tells us that love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud, it is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs, love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth, love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always preserves.  Love never fails. 

This is not the love I gave or experienced.  I have a choice to fix it, I choose to fix it.  I have to tell myself, just because I am going to fix something about myself, I can’t expect everyone else to fix themselves.  I am simply doing it because God asks it of me.

In order to understand what God teaches on love, I had to look at a few scriptures.  I had to look at my experience of God’s love for me.  The bible tells us that Jesus is the Shepard and we are the flock.  That the Shepard will never leave us, he will never abandon us, and no matter how wrong we are, he is still there loving us and reaching out to us.  God shows his love by guiding us, caring for us.  He transforms, renews, and strengthens.  He fills with hope, joy and peace.  He comforts, he forgives and he gives salvation.  He is gentle and definitely patient.  God honors, he protects and he will answer when I call on him.  God corrects.  This is what love is. 

This is how I should be striving to love.  Not the way I was taught, not the way someone else loves me and definitely not the way the world loves.  This includes loving myself correctly too.  I’ve asked myself, self how can I love like God?  I cannot transform or renew someone.  This can be done in many ways.  Not the same way as God can but you or I can do it by simply using a kind word, uplifting someone, encouraging someone, or a kind gesture. 

The greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart, mind and soul.  The second Greatest is to love your neighbor as you love yourself.  I asked myself why Gods greatest commandments are about love.  I believe it’s because love breaks down walls, it softens hearts, and love is contagious.  We are called to love.  We MUST love ALL.  God’s grace found me and you as we are.  God’s grace meets us where we are.

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him will not parish but have everlasting life.

 

IT IS THE TIME

Partial re-blog to see the full post go to August posting:

God has revealed to me that THIS IS the time of Mathew 24.  We are at the birthing pains that Jesus talked about.  Jesus is telling his church not to worry, that these things MUST come.  There will be a covering over his church.  His church will go through these things but wont affect us like the rest.  We are at the time of the big war between God and Satan.  This is the time of a physical and spiritual war.  That we are and will see all the things Jesus foretold in Mathew.  The word God gave me about the shifting on the earth is Satan’s power/influence running wild.  God will no longer hold him back (gods hand has lifted), he is loose.  The shifting in the heavens is the release of Gods spirit over the nations.  Touching all the lost souls and “Christians” that are balancing on the fence, IT IS THE TIME to pick a side.  There is no more waiting or having both sides any longer.  Gods spirit will primarily be for these two groups.  th[9]

The shifting in the heavens is also the outpouring of Gods power over the true church’s.  His power will enable us to help in the fight.  This is the time to stand in Gods full power.  That our roots will be planted firmly in fertile soil.  Its time to step up and step out in Gods fullness.  This is were Acts 4 comes in.  This is going to be awesome to witness!

Acts 4: 29-31  Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. 30 Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” 31 After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.

I keep getting these words brought to my minds forefront:  This is it, this is NOW.  There is no more time.  God will not wait any longer.  God is calling his harvesters forth, God is calling his warriors forth.  Boldness, Love, do not fear, step up and grab Gods power, obedience, true repentance.  God wants us to step outside of our comfort zone.  Not to let fear bind us any longer so we can be used by God.  If we as a church, as individuals do not step up and out we are not being obedient.  We are telling God no.  God will not use someone who wont allow it.  God is calling his church to a true love of people.  God is calling his church to repent for a religious spirit.  Legalism and a religious spirit pushed people away.  This is not God’s love.

I would like to mention that not all who claim to be Christians are true Christians.  I encourage all who believe in God, (or even those who don’t believe) to invite him into your heart or rededicate your life to him.  Take an inventory of your life and repent of the sins and ask God to guide your feet, hands, mind and mouth.  Ask God to re-direct your feet into the path that he has for you.

with love,

The Blind Girl

There was a girl blind at birth.  She had never seen…Her family would describe what the sky looked like in detail to her.  She would go to school and describe to her other blind friends all the details of the sky, AS IF she had seen it.

One day God healed her of her blindness.  She was able to see what the sky REALLY looked like.  She saw the different colors, the different layers, the vastness, the beauty, how the sky melted into itself.

This is what God wants us to have with him.  A first hand relationship with him, a deep relationship with him.  He does not want us to see him through others eyes, he does not want us to only rely on what others teach us but to be lead by the spirit, by God.

LOST, LONELY,TIRED, SCARED, SHATTERED???

If you are lost, lonely, tired, scared, or shattered please read on.

I was once a very lost, lonely, tired, scared and shattered person.  Many horrible things happened to me at a young age.  I was a torn person filled with hate and resentment amongst other things.  I made some bad decisions that led to a worse life which in turn caused me to dig myself deeper into a life I believed I was destined for.  I was an ugly person.

The reason why I am writing this to anyone who will read, is because I was terribly wrong.  I was loved, I was watched over, and yes I was an ugly person But God still loved me just as I was.  And he loves you just as you are.

If you are tired, lost, lonely, scared or shattered God can save you right where you are.  He can heal your heart and your past.  God can restore your mind.  He can turn your life around completely.  I know this for a fact because he has done this for me and countless others.  It wasn’t over night (although he has done that for some) but he was with me the whole time holding me in his hand.

If you would like to ask God in your heart, it is very easy.

Romans 10:9-10. “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and  believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

Example Prayer:

Lord God I thank you that you gave me a way by sending your son Jesus Christ to die and raise again for my sins.  I ask you to come into my heart and cleanse me of all my sins. Lord God I praise you and give you rule over my life past, present, and future.  I thank you Lord God that you have cleansed me and made me a new creation.  Lord God I ask that you restore and renew my heart and mind.  I declare that I am a child of God and I am all that God says I am.  I am healed, whole, victorious and an over comer through Jesus Christ.  In Jesus name Amen.

After you have done the above in Romans, you are now saved.  This means that you are a new creation.  You are new inside!  Ask God to restore and renew your mind and heart.  Turn away from sin and declare that you are a child of God.   You may not change over night but God reads the heart.  He knows every thought and every motive.  He knows when you are sincere and if you are trying your best.  He will guide you with his bible and holy spirit.  You are not left alone.

What helped me when I gave my life to God?

  1. Pray, pray and pray some more
  2. reading the bible/study the bible/meditate on the bible/believe the bible
  3. listening to praise and worship
  4. surround myself with different people. In my case I found a good church.

If you just dedicated your life to God I want to welcome you to the family!  Just remember Christians are not perfect but we are a work in progress.  If you would like prayer I would be honored to pray for you or with you.  Just leave me your name.
