Made Righteous

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child. Do you know the gift I have given you in repentance? Through the blood of Jesus, you have the opportunity to be set free, cleansed, restored, and made right before Me. 

Though your sin is dark and disgusting, Jesus’ blood made the way for you to be fully righteous before Me. This is the starting place for the atmosphere of revival to rule and reign. 

The power of Holy Spirit within you is held back by unclean and unrighteous vessels. Even a little impurity holds back the fullness of what I want to do. 

Come to Me and confess, and I will forgive and cleanse you fully. Then, the full power of Holy Spirit will be made ready and available. 

Ask for it, and you will receive more than you ever thought possible because that is who I am. I love you My child!!!

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 

Luke 11:9-13 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 
10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 
11 If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? 
12 Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 
13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!” 

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

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!!!

A Nation-shaking Generation on the Rising

The Lord has been reminding me lately of why I am here, of who I am, and of the simplicities that He taught me about a year ago today.  He brought to mind Jeremiah 1:4-9: The Lord gave me this message: “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.  Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” “O Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I can’t speak for You! I’m too young!”  The Lord replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you.  And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you.  I, the Lord, have spoken!” Then the Lord reached out and touched my mouth and said, “Look, I have put My words in your mouth!”  It was with this word that God urged Jeremiah to look beyond himself and to look to the importance of the task that he was called to fulfill.  Even as God commissioned Jeremiah, He has also commissioned us for the same purpose.  We must live our life intentionally and with an agenda because we were designed with an agenda written on our hearts…and that is to be Nation-shakers!!!

Jesus was a Nation-shaker.  Jesus said to the disciples in Luke 12:49, “I have come to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish it were already kindled.”  Jesus is the ultimate fire starter, but He yearns for revival fire to already be spread across the earth when He comes and the only way that will happen is if we become those fire starters.  Too often we get caught up in the limitations the enemy puts on us and we miss out on all that God is calling us to accomplish.  Just as Jeremiah was caught up in seeing his age as limitation, it’s easy to fall into the same lie.  However, William Pitt said it magnificently, “We’re too young to realize certain things are impossible. Which is why we do them anyway.”  Children don’t see the impossibilities that we cling to.  When a child has a goal in mind, they stop at nothing until they accomplish it.  This is the faith and determination we all should be walking in as children of God!

If not now, when?  If not us, who?  Esther faced this same choice.  Either she would stand up and not be silent anymore but answer the call with the heart response, “If I perish, I perish.”  Or she would remain silent, reformation would come from someone else, somewhere else and she would miss the call having lived her life for nothing.  Paul had it right when he said in Philippians 1:21, “For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better.” 

The amazing thing is that God’s given each one of us Holy Ghost ideas of creativity!  What is your gifting(s)?  What specifically is your calling?  Have you asked God lately to be specific on what your place is in the Kingdom?  He has given each of us Kingdom gifts to bring forth the advancement of His Presence upon the earth!  To bring forth the revival He has been stirring in this generation.  It’s been spoken prophetically over this generation for years that this is the chosen generation.  Are you going to walk in the fullness of it or sit by and let it come from somewhere else, just as it had to when Moses led the Israelites to the Promised Land but it was Joshua that was elected to lead them into the Promised Land.  It’s time for the dreamers to awaken to the reality of Heaven invading earth! Be radical! He’s ready to revive and reform.  He’s given us GRACE (the divine infusion of God’s enablement to see to it that you fulfill your destiny and all the devils in hell cannot stop it from being a reality because you have embraced Jesus!)  Before this can occur, we must come before Him with a humble heart and joyful repentance.  It removes every obstacle that would hold us back from the fullness of what Jesus died to release in our lives.  Then get ready for the most fulfilling, joyful ride of your life into your destiny!

Blessings of Fire!
