Standing – The Physical Exam

Standing – The Physical Exam

As I read through many of the postings on FB and other places. The foundation that everyone is trying to get at is why this strife is happening to them.
Many begin to explain the comings and goings of every aspect of their lives as they look for someone to explain to them why God is allowing this to happen.

You are hurt even at the point of despair and any sort of relief is welcomed to end the “right now” pain.

When you go to a doctor, you give him/her the symptoms of what you are experiencing. There are times where the physician can immediately give a diagnosis write a prescription and send you out the door. Then there are times where testing has to take place to get to the root of the issue (diagnosis) followed by a treatment plan.

When you express what you are going through, you are expressing the symptoms. It is going to take an examination of the Great Physician to give you a diagnosis and the proper treatment plan which consist of His Word, Your Faith, and your Mindset. There is no one on this natural physical earth that can tell you the right way to your victory but they can encourage you in knowing that you are victorious and more than a conqueror.

As you seek God, He can begin to reveal what the source of the issue is. The problem with this is, we don’t usually like what He shows us and the reason we don’t like it is because He starts with us, not our spouse, children, family etc… Yes a symptom may be separation, but the root cause could be a generational curse that has come down through your lineage to you and/or your spouse. If mom went through it, granddad went through it then something is not right.

Just like there are inherited diseases in the natural, there are generational diseases in the spirit. Once you figure out the issue then you have to begin to break that thing out of your life, and guess what, it does not happen overnight. Treatment plans are administered over time to ensure the disease is wiped out with all of its roots.

If God has told you to stand for your family’s salvation, deliverance, marriage etc., then you are the one that He saw before the world began.
God said “Cheryl” will be the one that will awaken herself and break every generational curse so that the generations to come will not be affected.

There is always one that God can trust to see an assignment through and that my friend is you.

Take your symptoms to God and ask Him for a diagnosis and treatment plan to end cycles that have been plaguing your family for years.

Physicals save lives, it is not admitting that you need a physical that can lead to death. Death of purpose and destiny for you and generations to come.

Make your appointment and go to Dr. Jesus today! He is right every time!

Spiritual Assassination – It’s Time to Assassinate (Return to Sender)

In light of the news and its reports on the ISIS situation something came to me.

These people literally sit back and plan how they can hurt Or destroy Americans. That is their focus and goal – sad but true. They sit around and contemplate how to take people out for no reason Except jealousy and hatred.

This is the same thing that the enemy and his kingdom of darkness does.

Assassinate is defined in Webster: to injure or destroy unexpectedly and treacherously. This is the enemy’s goal against all of us.

John 10:10 – “ The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

So now our white house administration has to sit back and plan how to counterattack this attack and currently as we speak, their are planes in the air hovering over ISIS ready to perform an airstrike if necessary.

Matthew 11:12 – “Now from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take
It by force.”

There is power in the spoken Word of God.

In Genesis 1:2 – …the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters and when God spoke creation began…..

I understand crying, hurt and pain but none of that is going to move the enemy. The only thing that moves the enemy is the WORD OF GOD!!!! Just as the white house is planning to do we must do also.

You have to hover over your situations speaking, decreeing and declaring the Word of God. As you speak the Word of God, it is just like bullets being sent upon your enemy, turning the treacherous acts they sent out towards themselves.

If the enemy has come against your finances and you are a tither: Assassinate them with: It is written, if I bring my tithes into the
storehouse, that God Will rebuke the devour for my sake in Jesus name! Bind up debt and poverty and loose wealth in Jesus name!

If the enemy has come against your family and their salvation: Assassinate them with, It is written, that God promised my entire house-
hold will be saved. Bind up every rebellious spirit and loose salvation into each one of their lives in Jesus name!

If the enemy has come against your health: Assassinate them with, It is written: healing is the children’s bread. 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!!! Bind sickness and
disease, loose healing in Jesus name!

If the enemy has come against your marriage: Assassinate them with, It is written: What God has joined together, let no man (woman, spirit)
separate. Bind the spirit of divorce and separation, loose unity and restoration of the marital covenant in Jesus name!

Continue to speak the Word of God and you will spend less time on the temporary natural circumstance you see in your face! Yes I know they
Are talking about you, judging you, giving you bad doctors reports, telling you that it’s over and to move on but you continue to praise the NAME
That is above all the other names. Jesus is the name that demons tremble. Everything the enemy throws, throw it back, return to sender!!!

Your fight is not on the ground but in the air! You are seated in heavenly places and the enemy is under your feet. You are launching your weapon
Of mass destruction not from the ground but from the 3rd heaven into the second heaven. You have been given authority to tread upon serpents,
Scorpions and over all the power of the enemy. Your fight is not with people but against spirits!!!

So continue to fight the good fight of faith, in the AIR seated in heavenly places!

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!

WE DO WRESTLE – WWE Warfare

WE DO WRESTLE – WWE Warfare

My son loves the WWE. As I sit and attempt to watch it with him and stomach the grappling of opponents attempts to throw, pin or even headlock in this sport I noticed something.

Wrestlers use a combination of attacks, holds, and throws while competing in a wrestling match. Depending on the size or build of one’s opponent measures the tactics they will use to attempt to bring each other down. You have your lightweight, welterweight, and heavy weight.

The definition of wrestle according to Webster is: to fight (someone) by holding and pushing instead of by hitting, kicking, or punching or to struggle to move, deal with, or control something.

As I began to go over this term in my mind, Ephesians 6:12 came to thought: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the
darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

We understand that our fight is not against people (flesh and blood) but we do have to wrestle with those in the rest of the scripture:

1. Principalities, – Heavy Weight

2. Powers,- Light Heavy Weight

3. Rulers – Welter Weight

4. Spiritual wickedness) – Light Weight

In Genesis 32 it is noted that Jacob wrestled with the angel now for all points and purposes angels are not flesh and blood. In this short bout with the angel of the Lord Jacob gives us insight that wrestling is necessary to get what belongs to you.

In the book of Daniel, Michael the archangel signifies that wrestling was going on in the spiritual realm so that the answer Daniel had prayed for could get into the natural realm where Daniel was.

Bottom line is that you have to wrestle to get what belongs to you. The enemy is not going to just let it go.

You have to use wrestling terms to wrestle, these are a few wrestling moves I found that are appropriate concerning spiritual warfare: you have to Big Boot (go for the head, binding the strongman or principalities), TIE UP(BIND), A wrestler ties up by holding a part of the opponent’s body in such a way that the opponent finds it difficult to extract himself. The body parts that are usually targeted are the arms, and the head(going for the powers and rulers).

Wrestlers are persistent to see that either they pin their opponent to the ground, or the opponent taps out. Be as persistent with the enemy as he is with you, keeping pounding him and pinning him to the ground with that Word.

Your breakthrough is dependent on it. You might be like Jacob and limp in the end but you will limp victoriously! Amen!

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.”

Standing – Lessons Learned

Standing – Lessons Learned

  1. Manipulating and control tools do not work in winning your prodigal spouse over. You cannot talk them into coming back, you cannot trick them into coming back and you cannot make them come back. Pray for God to turn their heart back and then they will come back in His timing.
  2. Crying is necessary. Yelling is necessary. Speaking ill words toward your spouse is destructive.
  3. He/She looks like your spouse but really it is a deceived spirit dressed up like your spouse. Stop talking to a spirit and direct your speech to God.
  4.  If you remain faithful to your spouse and most importantly you’re God, God will take care of you. I am a witness.                            Testimony: Never got evicted, lights never were shut off, always had food to eat!
  5. Never be surprised about what your spouse is saying about you (truth, lies, negative) it’s all a part of the package. Just note that every lying tongue that is risen against you in judgment, He shall prove to be in the wrong!!!
  6. Rejoice with others as they experience breakthrough. It really does give hope to your situation.
  7. Do NOT listen to emotions. Listen to His VOICE! Emotions steer you wrong every time!
  8. If God has ceased communication between your spouse and you for a season, do not interrupt it because you “feel” like you should. You are just setting yourself up for more hurt and you have had enough.
  9. Study His Word. Worship and praise does wonders for pain and anguish. The only One that said He would never leave or forsake you was Jesus!!
  10. They lied, cheated, spit and talked about Jesus and you are exempt because of???????

…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!
