Healing Waters, Tree of Life

A few days ago, I made mention of how the Lord moved mightily during our Sunday morning service. After a few days dwelling on what the Lord released and how He crashed in on our plans and took over, I am ready to share a bit of what took place. 


Church on Sunday morning was truly incredible and completely normal for God! During worship while in prayer, I felt Holy Spirit fall on me powerfully. I saw in the spirit a portal open in the supernatural realm and a pillar of swirling water descended upon the altar area. The sound of a mighty rushing waters began to increase in volume as I watched the waters churn. We just happened to be singing out of Isaiah 6, when Isaiah saw the Lord in His Temple and our worship and praise were being poured out like incense to the Lord. From the same opening that the pillar of water descended came an angel that was clothed in the brightest blue garments I have ever seen and it was his special assignment to churn the waters. He began singing, dancing, and spinning in praise within the waters and as he did, his wings as they touched would clap a thunderous sound as they stirred the waters. These were waters of divine and total healing.

The Lord reminded me of John 5 and the pool of Bethesda. John 5:1-4 (TPT) says,“Then Jesus returned to Jerusalem to observe one of the Jewish holy days. Inside the city near the Sheep Gate there is a pool called in Aramaic, The House of Loving Kindness. And this pool is surrounded by five covered porches. Hundreds of sick people were lying there on the porches—the paralyzed, the blind, and the crippled, all of them waiting for their healing. For an angel of God would periodically descend into the pool to stir the waters, and the first one who stepped into the pool after the waters swirled would instantly be healed.”  It goes on to say that there was a man who had been crippled for 38 years who laid beside the pool, always waiting for the angel to come and descend into the waters to stir them, awaiting eagerly his chance to enter the waters and be healed. There was just one problem though, he was unable to get into the waters himself. He required assistance and because only one person could receive their healing each time the angel came, and because hundreds with afflictions came awaiting the very same thing, he would always get passed over. 


Enter Jesus. 


Jesus notices him there helpless and asks if he truly wants to be healed. Because of mounting disappointment and discouragement, having missed his chance countless times before, the man replies in verse 7, “Sir, there’s no way I can get healed, for I have no one who will lower me into the water when the angel comes. As soon as I try to crawl to the edge of the pool, someone else jumps in ahead of me.” 


How many of you can say you relate to this man? He spent 38 years debilitated, void of a truly free life. When he saw an out laid right before him, he waited at the water’s edge for who knows how long. His freedom was laid right before him, within reach, yet he was unable to lay hold of it. After all of the discouragement, he began to believe he would never get his healing. He recognized his need for assistance but due to hope deferred, he was blind to the Healer standing before him


Perhaps there’s pain, sickness, affliction that you have been dealing with for a long time or for someone else. Perhaps you’ve been praying for healing for years only to see no results. Perhaps hope deferred has made your heart sick. (Proverbs 13:12Perhaps you’ve become so used to the pain that it has become part of your identity and you’ve learned to just deal. 


The Lord spoke to me when seeing the healing waters on Sunday that He wanted to release divine healing in the room, especially for those who had dealt with affliction for a long time. We released that word and called people forward to jump into the healing waters. While praying for people, the Lord gave me a word of knowledge that there was someone dealing with chronic pain for a long time and He wanted to heal them. No one came forward for it, so Jesus pointed the man out to me. Jeremiah and I went to pray for him and he knew I read his mail when we walked up to him. I told him I knew it was him and he said that he had been dealing with severe arthritis for four years and had chronic pain in his wrist and knee. We told him Jesus pointed him out because He wanted to heal him and asked if we could pray for him. He said “okay” and as we were praying, I asked if he felt anything different. He said there was a little change and that he could deal, that he was fine. This man is an example of many of us, just like the crippled man. We come to a place of either believing that this is our life now or that others need the healing more than us and that we can just deal. When we believe that others are worse off and need the healing more than us, we submit to that lie and are basically limiting God’s power, saying that He has a limited supply of healing. 


So with the crippled man, Jesus responded to him in verses 8 and 9“Stand up! Pick up your sleeping mat and you will walk!” Immediately he stood up—he was healed! So he rolled up his mat and walked again! Now this miracle took place on the Jewish Sabbath.”  Jesus offered his healing but it required action on his part. Either he could lie there and remain in his identity of being crippled or he could choose to believe Jesus and respond and step into his original design. Thus we return to Proverbs 13:12 for the second and most important part, “but a promise fulfilled is a tree of life.” 


Jesus did miraculous miracles that day. I had also got a word of knowledge about a rotator cuff and before I could say it, Jesus had healed a woman who had a torn one and had been unable to lift her arm for seven months! There was another woman who had separated vertebrae and was in constant severe pain, unable to cope. She woke up that morning in so much pain, she almost didn’t come to church. She didn’t want to take pain meds because they make her fall asleep. She came to church in excruciating pain and Jesus came as she was in the waters and completely healed her! No more pain!!! YES, LORD!!! 


Beloved, these miracles are for each one of you today just as they were in their time. The same Jesus that healed in these moments is the same Jesus that sees your need and wants to give you a tree of life! We must not allow ourselves to identify with the afflictions upon us, but press in and press on into the healing waters set before us! Jesus has MORE THAN ENOUGH of what we need when we need it! Reach out and take hold of His blessing today!

Awaken All You People

Word of the Lord-

The enemy has been masquerading himself as an angel of unity and diversity but he is just trying to create a distraction while he sows seeds of division and hatred. Sadly, many eyes and hearts are being led astray, saved and unsaved alike. My Spirit is indeed moving in the midst of all of the unnecessary chaos to bring revelation and restoration. 

The enemy would like nothing more than to keep My children from going out and turning the world upside-down and bringing My love and fire to the nations. 

Many have become preoccupied with being entertained by feeble and folly things that bear no eternal fruit; all while souls are perishing into an eternity of hell apart from Me. Truly I tell you, being entertained by man-made distractions gains nothing, for you may very well not only be losing your own soul but the souls of many. There is greater joy when one sinner repents than of any and all of the entertainment that this world has to offer! 

Wake up you misled, lazy ones! The world, indeed, all of creation is awaiting your awakening! For those who will get over and get past all of the ways that the enemy is moving and wage war where it is due- not against each other but against the spirits at work to bring destruction and division. This is not an earthly war between man but a war of the supernatural. 

Where are the ones who would pray and stand against the evil taking place in the unseen realm? For My Spirit is at work in all of these things and the weapons at hand for those who will partner with Me are mighty in the pulling down of strongholds. Who will be bold enough to lay down their lives and join Me in this war where I win? 

Matthew‬ ‭10:34‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Don’t imagine that I came to bring peace to the earth! I came not to bring peace, but a sword.”

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭10:3-6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ. And after you have become fully obedient, we will punish everyone who remains disobedient.”

Matthew 10:7-8‬ ‭AMP‬‬

“And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.”

Know the Truth

Our time in Cambodia was different from every other place that God has taken us to, as has been the pattern of our journey thus far.  One of the things that remain the same is that God never fails to bring about God appointments where ever we go.

This little guy decided to join us on the bus and fell asleep on me.

This little guy decided to join me on the bus and fell asleep on me.

Last Saturday, Jeremiah and I went to an internet cafe for breakfast so we could do some work.  Soon after ordering drinks, the electricity went off and we found ourselves in the presence of a woman trying to get us to buy cookies to benefit the children of Cambodia. Jeremiah asked her what they do for the children and she said that they do a reading program. Jeremiah responded, saying that we believe unless you are helping them spiritually as well, you are not really helping them at all.  She said that they do help them spiritually, that they too were Christians.  She then invited us to her church for service on Sunday morning.  Later on that evening, Jeremiah said that he felt that there was an open door with this woman and we would go to her church.  Though no one on the base had heard of this church, we made a deal that we would try and find it and if not, we would have church together.

After a little trouble finding the church (It was not at Omega Hotel, but at Alpha Hotel…perhaps we should have started at the beginning and not the end,)  we arrived at the small gathering of people all dressed in the same white clothing.  Their church service consisted of watching and partaking in a pre-taped service from the Philippines, at their home church.  It did not take long for us to realize that this was no ordinary church service, but it was in fact, a cult that we had been invited to.  There were so many red flags within the first 10 minutes and throughout the 3 hour service.  During the service, I asked Jeremiah several times about leaving, but he said he felt there was someone to talk to.

The pastor of the church essentially spoke a message of repentance, through instilling fear that without repenting, horrible things would occur.  That you must repent and your life has to be completely given over to the Father and King, and live accordingly to the will of the Father.  He also spoke primarily on God’s love, reading all of 1 Corinthians 13.  Through many things, this man had now become the “Appointed Son of God”; basically, Jesus had not finished the work. Jesus came for the Jews, but God had appointed him to come for the Gentiles.  After the service, the leader of the church tried to get us to come to a meeting to hear more but he would not share the beliefs, saying that it was too complicated.

The Truth is, what Jesus preached was not complicated.  It is simple and made for everyone to understand. God sent us there to speak Truth where there was deception.  No, we did not see a change immediately, but planting Truth will always win out in the end, because Jesus is The Way, THE TRUTH, and The Life.  The problem with this cult and many others is that the people heard the message one man was given through spoken word, dreams and visions, and they followed him. There was no Bible there during his time of receiving this.  The Bible says ‘the enemy disguises himself as an angel of light’ (2 Cor. 11:14).  Paul warns us over and over again in Romans to beware of false prophets and teachers.  Though this man taught from Scripture, he was not teaching the whole Bible and from the Lord, thus leading 6 million people astray.

The point of the photo always stood out to me.

The point of this always got me.

 Joshua 1:8 instructs us toStudy this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.”  We must study and know the Bible by spending time with God and receiving revelation from Him. Then when the enemy comes, we will be able to recognize it and bring to light what is moving in the darkness.  Have you given yourself wholly to studying the Word and receiving all the God wants to give you through it?  Are you familiar with the Truth and able to discern when something is not Biblical?  If not, I urge you to learn the Truth; and the best way to do this is by spending time with Jesus and reading His Word and receive the life and joy that comes from this devotion!!!
