Lesson From The Trash Can

A Lesson From the Trash Can

Today at lunch as I was throwing away paper towel I noticed that I had also thrown some money in there with it. I began to walk away saying it was only $3 but then decided to attempt to retrieve it.

As I looked down I saw the money lying something not so pleasing but I went ahead and reached down and grabbed it.

I then proceeded to the closest sink to wash my hands just in case any of the not so pleasant trash got on them. The money was perfectly fine and spendable.

As I was walking away with my “dirty money” the Holy Spirit used this experience to speak to me about people. Money in any increment is valuable and so are people. Just because they may be mingling in around the wrong people, involved in ungodly and illegal activities does not make them any less valuable. Someone just has to be willing to get their hands dirty, reach in and grab the valuable items.

Will you stand in the gap for someone who may not be doing the right things but has purpose and worth? Will you pray for that child of yours that is on drugs or in a gang even though you are completely embarrassed of their current actions? Will you pray for a prodigal spouse, child or relative to reconcile themselves back to God and then to their families? Will you pray for the healing of someone that you consider to be an enemy?

The blood of Jesus does that for us. It cleanses us and washes of all our filth and sets us before the King of kings to be used for His use.
Each and every person has value because God loves them no matter what trash can they may be currently residing in.

Instead of walking away from what you may consider trash because they are dirty and covered in filth, reach in grab them, pray for them, wash them in the blood of Jesus and watch God use them in His way.

Money can be replaced but where a person will spend eternity cannot.

Tornado Watch

Tornado Watch

God is getting ready to scatter your enemies as far as the east is from the west!

Psalm 144:5-8
5 Bow down Your heavens, O Lord, and come down; Touch the mountains, and they shall smoke. 6 Flash forth lightning and scatter them; Shoot out Your arrows and destroy them. 7 Stretch out Your hand from above;
Rescue me and deliver me out of great waters, From the hand of foreigners, 8 Whose mouth speaks lying words, And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

Selah

Let’s look at what happens inside of a tornado:

The air flow inside of a tornado races upwards from the surface of the earth, eventually meeting up with the downward air flow from the thunderstorm. This conflict of air is what creates the tornado’s twirling motion.

As your prayers are going up from the earth, God is sending the answers down. This is creating a conflict which for all intents and purposes looks like a storm. Help me Holy Ghost! When the tornado actually touches down it cause many times destruction and sometimes loss of lives. In this case, this whirlwind is scattering and deleting your enemies and anything standing in the way of your destiny and purpose.

When it came down to Jericho, the only people that were saved were Rahab and her family that were inside of her house because of promise made. There is safety in the covenant promises of God. Those that are safely secured in the promises of God will only look on but those outside (enemies) will be deleted!

Whenever a funnel cloud is seen by someone, an emergency signal is sounded to alert people to take cover. Cover your family in the blood of Jesus, armor them in the armor of God at all times.

Listen for the sound, enemy scattering and deletion is on the way! Vindicaton and restoration is on the way! Your situation may look nasty but don’t fret, God is all in the middle of it literally.

Joel 2:1-2

1 “Blow the trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; For the day of the Lord is coming, For it is at hand:

2 A day of darkness and gloominess, A day of clouds and thick darkness, Like the morning clouds spread over the mountains. A people come, great and strong, The like of whom has never been; Nor will there ever be any such after them, Even for many successive generations.”

Covenant Intruders

This morning I was listening to a you tube broadcast. The speaker began to talk about the confrontation between David and Goliath. The giant named Goliath attempted to use things that he had no authority to use to defeat David. As we understand in Genesis 1:28b God gave us dominion over the fish in the sea, birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.

Paraphrasing for time sake, Goliath told David 1 Samuel 17: 44 “Come here,” he said, “and I’ll give your flesh to the birds and the wild animals!” First of all, Goliath did not have authority to do this, this authority was only reserved to those who were in a covenant relationship with God. David says in vs. 46b – This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. David could do this because he was in a covenant relationship with God.

We are in covenant relationships with God and with our husbands’. Those “intruders” that attempt to act like us, or be like us can never be us. They do not have the authority that we have been given.

Your spouse may have them believing that they have this authority because of the words they are speaking to them or against their covenant spouse.

This morning I want to you to see yourselves as David saw himself. The “other person” has no say so in the life of your husband only you can go in on his behalf to intercede for him. Any other person is just like Goliath, and uncircumcised Philistine. So this morning, you tell that uncircumcised Philistine what their final destination is going to be. This morning slay that spirit of adultery, whoremonging etc. and give its carcass(worthless remains) to the birds of the air and the beasts of the field. You have the power and authority to spiritually assassinate every spirit that is coming against your marriage and feed its remains back to the kingdom of darkness.

Now understand that we do have to pray for the “other person” that they too become enlightened so that they can be saved, but the bottom line is no other person can come to you and tell you what they are going to do to your marriage!

Prayer

Lord we honor, praise and adore You. We ask for forgiveness of any and all sin. We plead the blood of Jesus over our lives, marital covenants and families now in Jesus name. We spiritually assassinate ever uncircumcised Philistine of adultery, rebellion, confusion, whoremonging in the name of Jesus and we loose covenant, unity, peace and faithfulness into each of our marriages now in Jesus name. We plead the blood of Jesus over our spouses relationship with You and stand in agreement that it is being restored even now. You are the head of their lives so we thank You for first reconciling them to You and then back to their families.

We ask Lord God that You send people into the lives of the “other people” to warn them of touching this holy union. Your Word says that You will make a way of escape. We pray that this escape is made as loud and clear as You made to Abimelech in that dream where he was warned to not touch Sarah. We bind Your Mind to our husbands’ mind, Your Spirit to our husbands’ spirit so that they can see Your Will for their lives. We bind, break and destroy every ungodly soul tie in sexual relations that has been made between the other person and our husbands in Jesus name. We bind peace, happiness and fellowship in each of these ungodly relationships.

We bind conception, pregnancy and birth in every one of these ungodly relationships. We loose confusion, contention and strife into each of these non-covenant, ungodly relationships. You said whatever we bind in earth is bound in heaven and whatever is loosed in earth is also loosed in heaven.

We ask all of this 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!

Binding the spirit of divorce

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

Lord we ask for forgiveness of any and all sin in the name of Jesus Christ. We repent Lord God not only of the sins committed during our lifetime, but also we stand in the gap and ask You to forgive us for the sins of our predecessors, we plead the blood of Jesus over each and every sin especially sexual sin, adultery and divorce and we decree that the blood if Jesus goes back 10 generations annihilating any and all curses of adultery and divorce.

You said in Your Word that we cannot plunder the strongman’s house unless we bind the strongman of Baal(covenant breaking spirit) and we bind the spirits of adultery and divorce in the name of Jesus. You said Lord that whatever we bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatever we loose on earth is loosed in heaven. We bind the strongman of Baal, the Jezebel spirit, spirit of adultery and divorce and we loose the spirit of Elijah, we loose covenant into each and every believers marriage in the name of Jesus.

It is written: What God has joined together let no man break apart. We bind up each and every seducing and lustful spirit both fleshly and spiritual that would try and cause our spouses to stumble from purpose and destiny. We plead the blood of Jesus over our spouses spiritual and natural eyes in the name of Jesus. We thank You Lord God hallelujah as each covenant wife or husband stands for their marriage we stand against any and ever demonic power clothed in the complete armor of God, we are draped in the love of Jesus Christ which covers a multitude of sins.

We understand that the weapon of our warfare is not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. We understand that our spouses are not the enemy but that the enemy of our souls is satan. We take a firm stand against this devastating and foul spirit and command it to loose its hold off of each marriage in Jesus name. We command you satan by the power we have been delegated to trample on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy. No weapon formed against us shall prosper and that includes the weapon of divorce.

We stand clothed and saturated in the blood of Jesus, Hallelujah. We intercede on the behalf of our spouses and we stand flat footed against the powers of darkness and we plead the blood of Jesus over our spouses destiny, we declare and decree that our spouses have overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.

We thank You that everyone is brought to a godly sorrow that leads to repentance without regret. We praise You God that our testimonies will save other men and women in the future. Before you formed us and our spouses in the womb You knew them. You Lord created each and every one of them with purpose and destiny. That is what we stand in the gap for. That the purpose and destiny of our spouses will be fulfilled in this lifetime.

We forgive each and every offense now in the name of Jesus because we understand that the whole setup was to prevent them and us from reaching our God given purpose and destiny.

We declare and decree that not one gift or talent shall fall to the ground but that our spouses will leave here to live with You at a ripe old age having fulfilled every bit of the design Lord God from the foundation of the earth. We thank You that these pastors, evangelists, teachers, preachers, fathers, brothers, uncles….will expend every spiritual and natural gift that You Lord have given them.

We seal this prayer in the blood of Jesus, sign of the new covenant and sign it in His name, the name that is above all names, the name of Jesus, in Jesus name, Amen!

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!
