Build the Ark – God’s standard

Build the Ark – God’s standard

Isaiah 59:19 – “When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Lord will lift up a standard against him.”

As I thought about this scripture I began to see a correlation between it and the story of Noah.

Noah found grace in the Lord’s eyes and was instructed to build an ark that would hold his family and two of every kind of beast and animal. At this particular time there were no large bodies of water to accommodate this masterpiece so I am sure it looked silly to all who looked on. As you stand for what God has told you, holding tight to and standing on the Word of God do you look silly to people looking on? As you build your ark through prayer, fasting and faith do your friends and family tell you are crazy, accept whatever and move on…. I encourage you today to rely on God’s standard.

God’s standard does not look like our standards. His standards at time make no sense to those of us with natural eyesight. This standard that Noah built was built to save a remnant of mankind to begin again. The funny thing about it is that Noah was not perfect by any means but he found one of the godly twins “grace and mercy” and it made an exception to the rule.

There are many people believing God for rescue and deliverance from varied situations. These are not perfect people but people that have found grace in the Lord’s eyes. As you stand for your restored health, family, marriage etc. know that you are God’s chosen and that “Grace” is tattooed on your forehead, so BUILD YOUR ARK. Do not worry about the stares, glares and snickers behind your back and sometime to your face. Be obedient to God’s instructions through His Word and His still small voice. When God says turn left, turn left, when God says turn right, then turn right. Put on natural blinders to people and spiritual blinders to the lies and deceit of the enemy.

Natural: Negative report from the doctor: People see the reports, medicine, chemo etc.

Build the Ark: It is written: He was wounded for my transgressions, bruised for my iniquities, the chastisement of my peace was upon Him and by His stripes, I am healed.

Natural: Marital Separation

Build the Ark: It is written: God you hate divorce, and I place You in remembrance of Your Word, You said God “What God has joined together let no man separate.”

Natural: Rebellious Children

Build the Ark: It is written that my entire house would be saved and just as the prodigal son returned to his senses and home so will my children. Lord you did it for the prodigal father and you will do it for me.

Building an ark is not easy but necessary to save the remnant of your family for generations to come. In the end, I am sure the people caught in the flood were banging, begging and pleading to get on that ark as the flood came in. Once your ark is built there will be people that initially thought you were crazy asking either to get on your ark or assistance in building their own ark in some form or fashion.

Noah’s ark was sealed by God. You on the other hand will have the opportunity to open the door to your ark to those that God directs your way. When they come to the door say: He is no respecter of persons what He did for me He will do for you, there is a standard (God’s standard) for you!

Threshing – Binding Adultery(Natural and Spiritual)

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

In the name of Jesus we ask for forgiveness of our sins both knowingly and unknowingly. We stand before Your Throne boldly, standing in the gap so that you do not destroy but that Your Will be performed in the earth! We stand in agreement for men and women to be delivered from the spirit of adultery both natural and spiritual. We pray that they will hunger and thirst after righteousness that they will spend eternity with You. We pray for each and every spouse that has turned away from You to serve other gods to be turned back to You!

We plead the BLOOD of Jesus over and throughout the minds of ourselves and each spouse represented and bind the mind of Christ to each and every mind. We understand that the mind is the enemy’s battleground but where the blood of Jesus is found spiritual death must pass over! We understand that every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust and enticed. Then when lust is conceived it bringeth forth sin: and sin when it is finished brings forth death but because of the blood it will not prosper!

We plead the blood of Jesus in and throughout each spouses heart, for we understand that out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things that defile men. We decree a supernatural blood of Jesus transfusion so that the blood that flows throughout each spouse renews the heart and the mind with the Word of God.

According to Your Word we must first bind the strongman before we can plunder his goods and that whatever we bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatever we loose in earth is loosed in heaven. We stand flat footed and firm in agreement and faith and we bind the strongman of Baal(covenant-breaking spirit), chaos, confusion, we bind Asmodeus and Osmodeus the spirits that motivate unfaithfulness between marriage partners. We loose the Spirit of Holiness, truth and covenant and peace. We bind the strongman of whoredoms, the spirit of adultery, the spirit of homosexuality, jealousy, anger and abuse. We loose the Spirit of Holiness, covenant, righteousness, purity and the blood of Jesus to annihilate every generational demonic spirit and command it to cease its operation NOW in Jesus name! We bind the spirit of perversion, the lying spirit, every seducing spirit, spirit of error, divination, pride, bondage and command them to loose their hold from off of that husband or wife NOW in Jesus name. Each spouse is blood bought and saved because the Word decrees that our entire households will be saved. We loose the Holy Spirit into each spouse and we thank You Lord for the road to Damascus conversions using our RIGHT NOW faith!

We plead the blood of Jesus over the eye gates, ear gates of each and every spouse represented that they will see as God sees and only follow the voice of the true and living God. No weapon formed against these marriages will prosper and every lying tongue that is raised up against them shall be prove to be in the wrong !

We thank you Lord for what You have done and are doing now and forevermore in Jesus name, Amen!

…Because the midwives feared God

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

In Exodus 1 starting at verse 15 the midwives are told that as the Hebrew women give birth that they are to kill the boys being born and allow the girls to live. First lets take a look at the definition of a midwife: :

to assist in producing, bringing forth, or bringing about.

However even after the king gave out the order, knowing that they could be facing a death sentence for disobeying the worldly king, the midwives chose to fear God(Heavenly King) and did not do what the (worldly) king commanded them.

While Standing in the gap for yourselves, spouses, children and families you must take the stand that these midwives took. As the world, spouses, children, family speaks one way we must choose to fear God.

What does the word of God say about your situation? What has God spoken to you regarding your dreams, destiny, purpose, ministry or family?

God designed it to where men were to be the head of the household. The enemy has been working since the beginning of time to destroy the order. We have to pray, stand in the gap so that God’s design, purpose and destiny is birthed in the earth. He is looking for people that will turn a deaf ear to the world and choose to fear God.

As an intercessor for your family you are the birthing mechanism as you stand in the middle praying the Word of God to birth purpose and destiny for you, your spouse, children and families.
When the enemy tells you to quit praying for someone; choose to fear God.

In verse 21 we see the reward to the midwives for their choice: ” because the midwives chose to fear God, He provided households for them.”

When you choose to fear God, He will perfect everything, everyone, every need that concerns you. He is Jehovah Jireh.

Rise up people of God, stand in the gap, allow God to use you to birth His Will via your prayers using His Word, fear God! Your name is etched in the palm of His hand and no devil, no person or no spirit can pluck you from it!

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!

Warriors! ITS TIME To Thresh!

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.

4. We have the mind of Christ because the mind of Christ is bound to our minds.

Called For a Generational Rescue

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

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!

Candy Crush – Next Level

The other day I was struggling with getting through a level on Candy Crush. For a week I continuously played the game hoping to win and became more and more frustrated to the point my phone was almost thrust into the air. 🙂

We were at movie night at our church and I asked my friend if she had been at this level and could she try to get me past it. She took the phone and after two attempts hands it back to me with the level completed. 🙂

There are some breakthroughs that you will need help to complete. My friend had already dealt with that level so she knew exactly what to do. I know you are king or queen of your castle but some things you are going to need the wisdom of a person that has already experienced what you are currently going through.

Everything that you go through is not to destroy you but your situation will become your ministry for someone else.

Ask God for wisdom and to guide the right people into your path to help the ease of frustration of the next level transition.

Your help could be closer than you think. You just have to admit that you need the help.
