The Threshing Floor – Anointed To Cover

God’s Appointed Position in Prayer
http://www.gapp-works.com

As I began to meditate on the story of Ruth and Boaz at the threshing floor in Ruth 3 I began to see this chapter in a way I had never seen it before.

Boaz was at the threshing floor winnowing barley. We understand that threshing is separating the bad parts from the usable or edible product.

Naomi instructed Ruth to wash and anoint herself put on her best garment, wait until he finished his work, eating and drinking and then to uncover his feet and lie down. Boaz eats, drinks and lies down at the heap of grain

Ruth was patient and followed instruction. In the process when We are praying and God is performing His work(Threshing) we cannot be in such a hurry until the work is completed.

Boaz lying down at the heap of grain symbolizes the finished work or product. Ruth did not lie down while the threshing was in process, she was instructed by Naomi to wait until his work was completed including eating and drinking. When the work was done she uncovered his feet only to cover them back up with herself.

She was washed, anointed and had on her best garment. In other words what she uncovered she was able, prepared and anointed to cover back up.m!

In the process of God completing His work, work on yourself to ensure that you are able to cover what may be exposed. She uncovered his feet but then covered the exposed part with her able, washed and anointed self!

“Many are called but few are chosen.”

Ruth was chosen to cover because she herself went through a deliverance process. What happens many times is that we are not prepared to cover what is being exposed and we lose focus because we haven’t dealt with our own deliverance.

By the blood of Jesus we are washed, able, and anointed to cover the assignment in our lives because before the foundation of the earth He called us and ordained us but we must recognize that in order to complete our assignments we must too be delivered.

In covenant one party bears the weakness of the other which means there are areas you are anointed to cover in this one flesh relationship. The places exposed are the areas you have been washed, anointed and dressed to cover! You have been set apart for such a time as this. Covenant is spiritual and is not determined or negated by physical location. Cover what has been uncovered with your anointing! Suit up and PRAY!

The Weapon of Worship

The Weapon of Worship

Many of us fail to understand the power of worship! Worship releases the supernatural power of the Almighty God. Have you ever been involved in either a sporting event or some event where the crowd is praising you for your efforts? The adrenaline begins to coerce through your body to perform at its maximum. The more praise the more you work to make it happen so that the crowd will be pleased.

In 2 Kings 19 – King Hezekiah was facing a serious dilemma. God had given a promise but the enemy began to boast about how no one not even God was able to cease his activities. This unnerved Hezekiah just as many of our circumstances unnerves us. Hezekiah in verse 14 when presented with this issue did the following, He received the letter from the messengers regarding the issue, he read it and then Hezekiah went to the House of the Lord, and spread it before the Lord. He didn’t run to his friends, prayer partners, etc. he went before the only One that could give him an answer that would yield results.

Hezekiah said the following before the Lord: “O Lord God of Israel the One who dwells between the cherubim, You are God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made the heavens and the earth. Incline Your ear, O Lord, and hear; open Your eyes, O Lord, and see; and hear the words of Sennacherib (enemy) which he has sent to reproach the living God. Truly, Lord, the kings of Assyria have laid waste the nations and their lands, and have cast their gods into the fire; for they were not gods, but the work of men’s hands – wood and stone. Therefore they have destroyed them. Now therefore, O Lord our God, I pray save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that YOU are the LORD GOD, You alone!

God desires to get the glory out of your life. The enemy was stripped of his authority when Jesus went to the cross! Today let us go before the Lord just like Hezekiah did. Take the doctor report, court documentation, report cards, unemployment issues etc. and lay it before the Lord like Hezekiah, worship the Lord and see what the Lord will do when your worship. After Hezekiah finished worshipping, he received a good report of his victory in 2 Kings 19:20-34!

“O Lord God of Israel the One who dwells between the cherubim, You are God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made the heavens and the earth. Incline Your ear, O Lord, and hear; open Your eyes, O Lord, and see; and hear the words of Sennacherib (list your enemies) which he has sent to reproach the living God. Truly, Lord, the kings of Assyria have lain waste the nations and their lands, and have cast their gods into the fire; for they were not gods, but the work of men’s hands – wood and stone. Therefore they have destroyed them. Now therefore, O Lord our God, I pray save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that YOU are the LORD GOD, You alone!

Just Worship!

….BECAUSE YOU ARE HIS WIFE

God’s Appointed Position in Prayer

  • ….BECAUSE YOU ARE HIS WIFE

In Genesis 39 the story is depicted regarding Joseph and his master’s wife. His master’s wife attempts to seduce Joseph. Joseph refuses and makes the following declaration in verse 9: “There is no one greater in the house than I, nor has he kept back anything from me but you, because you are his wife. How then can I do this great wickedness and sin against God?”

Joseph looked at the spiritual implications of becoming involved with his master’s wife over the natural consequences. Sinning against God was more important than satisfying his fleshly desires.

I speak to those that are wives or husbands and regardless of your current marital situation, because you are his wife or her husband, take another look at how your behavior could cause you to sin against God? Marriage is a covenant. You can’t see it but it nonetheless supernaturally powerful. Touching this supernatural covenant is sinning against God. Joseph realized this and we must realize it also. There are several other biblical stories displaying the consequences of touching this covenant (Abraham, Sara and Abimilech in Genesis 20)

1 Chronicles 16:22 – Touch not mine anointed and do my prophet no harm. As his wife/husband, you must be their wife/husband regardless of what they are saying to you or doing to you. You do not have to answer to your husband/wife regarding your actions but you do have to answer to God. Let God deal with your spouse while you are honoring your part as his wife or her husband.

*You pray for your husband ….BECAUSE YOU ARE HIS WIFE

*You stand in the gap on his behalf .BECAUSE YOU ARE HIS WIFE

*You honor your marriage vows….BECAUSE YOU ARE HIS WIFE & BECAUSE YOU FEAR THE LORD

We have to remember that we are of another kingdom! We are in this world but not of it. Just because the world says it is okay to behave a certain way in particular situations does not mean anything to the believer. We cannot operate out of emotions and feelings, because covenant cares nothing about that.

Ecclesiastes 5:4-5 “When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pa it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. I know it is hard and you are hurt and unsure if you can do this but God appointed you to intercede on his behalf ….BECAUSE YOU ARE HIS WIFE

We must operate according to the Will of God, which is His WORD! Wives are to submit to their husbands as unto the Lord. Remain the faithful companion in this marital covenant as unto the Lord ….BECAUSE YOU ARE HIS WIFE and God will perfect everything and everyone that concerns you.

“Marriage is honorable among all and the marriage bed undefiled.”

WARNING: Threshing in process!

Thresh is defined as : to separate the seeds of from the husks and straw by beating; to swing, beat, or strike in the manner of a rapidly moving flail. When a person flails their arms they do it wildly and without restraint.

Called For a Generational Rescue

God’s Appointed Position in Prayer

Hello Noah! That might not be your name but you will see what I mean in a minute. 🙂

As I was reading Genesis 6 I began to see this story in terms of intercession regarding generational curses. Noah was named by his father and his name meant: “This one will comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands, because of the ground which The Lord has cursed.”

As God was preparing to destroy what He created due to the sinful nature someone named Noah caught His eye. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations and he walked with God. Genesis 6:9

Have you ever stopped to think that in your situation whatever it is may be due to the fact that like Noah you caught God’s eye because you are just, walk with God and that whatever your name may be, you were called before the foundation of the world to stand in the gap to break the generational curses in your family!

Because of your stand in faith, obedience to God’s voice and the call on your life God has called you to stand in the gap so that you, your children, grandchildren will not suffer from the curse that you have had to endure.

You have been called to do what your Mother, Grandma, Auntie etc were not able to do. I know it’s hard! I know you want to give up! But guess what it’s not in your name to give up!

Follow God’s instructions in building your ark! Once it’s built take your family leave every generational curse and walk into ALL the generational blessings that have been sitting waiting on you, your children etc.

You can do it because its in your name!

You must rule over it!

You have no excuse: Rule over it!

We are all familiar with the story of Cain and Abel and the offerings.

In Genesis 4:6 – So the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.” (Genesis 4:6, 7 NKJV)

Even from the beginning of time God has set man to be in dominion and rule. He gave the mandate to Adam in Genesis 2, to Adam’s son in Genesis chapter 4 and in the New Testament: And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. (Luke 10:18, 19 NKJV)

You have two choices: either you rule over the sin/situations or it will rule over you. The enemy desires to remove you but he can’t do it without your help. If you continue to look at your situation, wallow in your situation rather than rule over your situation then satan wins and his desire is winning.

When you decree the Word of God and rule over whatever it is with It then you win! You must open your mouth and decree in the atmosphere: it’s the Voice of The Lord that breaks the cedars!

Finance issue: It is written His desire is for me to prosper and be in health even as my soul prospers

Children: It is written God perfects everything that concerns me and my entire house shall be saved

Marriage: It is written God hates divorce and what God has joined together let no man, woman, spirit separate!

Its like a millionaire that never spends any money. You situation is not excuse, your emotions are not an excuse.

You must RULE OVER IT!!!!
