"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."  Hebrews 4:12

As I have said before, these are not just words. God's word is powerful! Jesus Christ gave us that power, and everyone has a right to know God's power.

Reading God's word is how He talks to us; praying is how we talk to Him. 

So, hear from Him, and talk to Him, today:


  • Turn away from sin, sin no more;
  • Pray for, and give, forgiveness;
  • Read God's word; meditate on it day and night;
  • Wonder, and desire to understand, what it means; and,
  • Pray for wisdom, knowledge and understanding.

He promises to show us great and mighty things, which we do not know. Jeremiah 33:3

Fear is a lie, and Satan is the father of lies, the great deceiver, the one who caused the whole world to sin. Satan is powerLESS, however, against believers in the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Did you know that when you pray, worship and/or praise God, Satan must flee from you? Satan has NO power over us . . . unless we let him. Therefore, he is subtil, elusive:

“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made”? Gen. 3:1

“subtil” (subtle): elusive, cunning, crafty.
 
“cunning”: characterized by wiliness and trickery.
 
 “wily” (wiles): a trick or stratagem intended to ensnare or deceive.
 
 “crafty”: adept in the use of subtlety and cunning.
 
“elusive”: tending to evade grasp or pursuit.

This is Satan's modus operandi, or mode of operation, and he will take a lifetime to deceive if he must. Man, however, has God's spirit (Gen. 1), and is not so easily deceived. It may take Satan a man's lifetime to groom that man subtly, with quirks, illnesses, dislikes, or hates, which will ultimately, one day, keep him from freely serving God.

The Good News is that through the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ, fear has no hold on believers. Satan must flee!

Our Savior gave us His power, and even greater works shall believers do: 

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.” John 14:12

"Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you." Luke 10:19

He even gave us the power to move mountains:

“And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” Matthew 17:20

Not only move mountains, but control the wind, the rain, and other elements around us, just as He did when He calmed the raging ocean and winds; and, He walked on water, and even made Peter to walk on water momentarily, until Peter became fearful and lost his faith.

Fear is a lie. Jesus is the way, the Truth and the life.

Have you ever personally tried to control the elements? Make it rain, for instance? How did it go?

I challenge everyone to give it a try. Raise your hands in the air, and out loud, give all glory, honor, praise and thanksgiving to Father God, the Father of Lights, in whom there is no shadow of turning, and then command it to rain, rain, rain, in Jesus' Mighty Name. Amen. 

​It only takes God one day to move His hand. 

I heard a prophet say recently that God said 2022 is the year when He will invade our personal space. If you are feeling down or persecuted, raise your hands in the air and give all glory, honor, praise and thanksgiving to the One True God, and He will come down right where you are standing and fill you with His presence, spirit, light and love.

Try it some time when you need a pick-me-up, or try it all the time so you never again need a pick-me-up!

God is great, all the time!

Watch and Pray

Jesus said, “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” Luke 21:36

God is real, and He sits on his throne and laughs at them. HA HA HA HA HA. God will not be mocked, but man will reap what he has sown.

"For it is written, As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God." Romans 14:11

So, "Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you." 2 Cor. 13:11

Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen. Amen. Amen.

<![CDATA[THE FAMILY]]>Thu, 09 Jun 2022 04:00:00 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/the-familyBelievers in the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ ARE "The Family," 2.5 billion members strong worldwide!
"And he [Jesus] answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren? And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother." ​Mark 3:33-35

Heavenly father, let Your Words and Your Will always be mine, and not my own, and let Your children with ears to hear, hear. In Jesus' name. Amen.

I began writing this blog at the beginning of April 2022, but to tell you the truth, I have not felt much like writing, not that God hasn't tried though. Someone said something the other day, and it made me realize that I am not afraid; I am not worried; I KNOW God will not forsake me.

The problem is I am waiting for something. Instead of living in the present, in His current victories, and having faith in His promises, I am waiting for His promises.

The Bible does not tell us to wait! Jesus tells us to go forth and preach His Word, and confirm it with signs:

Mark 16

15 "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen."

Jesus is saying that these signs will follow anyone who believes, not just His apostles: 


  • We shall cast out devils;
  • Speak with new tongues;
  • Take up serpents;
  • No deadly thing we drink shall hurt us; and,
  • We shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Who knew? Those are some pretty tall orders, and they are available to each and every one of God's Children, believers in the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ. We may not perform, or even see, a lot of these signs right now, but we will very soon.

As I have said many times, God is pouring out His Spirit into the hearts of His Chosen, and they are awakening en masse to the Power of God and the blood of Jesus Christ.

​Where there is Light, however, there is also darkness, for a time. 

The morning of May 26, as I was reading the Bible, the Holy Spirit gave me discernment of the following scripture, as it relates to current events:

Matthew 12

43 "
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walks through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none.

44 Then he says, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he finds it empty, swept, and garnished.

45 Then goes he, and takes with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation."

In verse 43, the unclean spirit represents all of the demons possessing men today, mostly men in leadership around the world, but also many other abominations affecting society today.

"Man" in v. 45 represents mankind.

So, all unclean spirits in the world right now are being cast out, and they will roam, seeking rest, and find none.

In verse 44, because this is not yet the end, after a period of time, those spirits will come back, and find the world empty (of demon spirits), swept (clean by believers in the blood of Jesus Christ, The Family), and garnished (with crowns of glory).

And, finally, in verse 45, those unclean spirits will each bring seven other spirits more wicked than themselves, and the last state of mankind will be worse than the first.

This Word is in line with God's Words to me in these blogs for the last three years. Destruction is coming, but God's Children who listen to, and obey, Him will be saved.


I felt compelled to follow through and finish this blog this morning, June 9, when I read the following article on Business Insider: 

www.businessinsider.com/magaverse-civil-war-brews-lin-wood-mike-lindell-qanon-john-2022-6

Who and what to believe, and, oh, what a tangled web they weave.

What does all of this have to do with "The Family"? Everything.

Something God began putting heavy on my heart around the beginning of April 2022 is "The Family." 

Seeing more people at church recently, even if short-lived, was such a blessing, and an answer to prayers. I realize, however, that what God said last year, that people would be looking for Him, is here, right now! What are people looking for exactly? The Family.

Think about it: We are in The Family of Christ. Our Family is 2.5 billion members strong worldwide. 

Jesus tells us that we are all a member of the body of Christ, and each member needs the other members to function. For example, if we were all ears, then we would not be able to see, taste, touch, walk, think, et cetera. We are all a member of The Family of Christ, and we need each other like a flashlight needs batteries to shine its light.

Birth families are more divided than ever now, because God is literally separating the wheat from the chaff, and He is making it clear on which side everyone stands. People are searching for The Family that they do not have any longer as a result of this separation; they are searching for a connection with the members of the body of Christ, The Family that is 2.5 billion strong.

Having been alienated from my birth family for many years, I can remember saying, even recently, that I have no family. This simply is not true. Jesus tells us to love The Family (in Christ) first, and then everyone else, as if they were ourselves. 

Who is our family? Jesus said His family were those who believed in Him, the body of Christ, The Family, 2.5 billion members, who are emptying, sweeping, and will be wearing those crowns of glory when the demon spirits return sevenfold!  Matthew 12:43-45 above. 

We are the batteries (2.5 billion) that will make God's (flash)light shine!

Be prepared by charging your batteries now with the Word of God Ephesians 6:11-24, prayer, and The Family. 


“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Jeremiah 33:3

Hallelujah! Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen. Amen. Amen.

<![CDATA[FEAR YE NOT]]>Wed, 13 Apr 2022 04:00:00 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/fear-ye-notWe are of more value to God than many sparrows.
Even the very hairs of our head are all numbered.


GOD IS GREAT - ALL THE TIME!

Heavenly Father, thank you for our many blessings, too many to count. Thank you for making our path straight. Thank you for reminding us everyday that you are here, you are real, and you are our God, the creator of the heavens and the earth. Let Your words always be mine, and let Your children always hear them. Amen.

Some time during the night of March 26-27, 2022, I began dreaming about scripture. I wrote most of this blog on March 27, but, once again, I was a slow learner in connecting the dots. I looked at it today for the first time two weeks after writing it, and it just .. made sense. Praise God. Thank you, Jesus.

So, I dreamed about scripture on March 26-27, just repeating the same scripture-based dream over and over, and then I awoke, and could not remember the scripture or the dream. So frustrating, right? So, I went back to sleep, trying to get back to that dream, chasing it.

Then, clear as day, a scripture came to me in my sleep: Matthew 10:31 below. Later, lying there half asleep, I wondered if there even was a v. 31 in Matthew 10. Just writing that makes me sad that I do not yet have faith in God. Forgive me, Lord.

So, what did Jesus tell me, when I was wrestling all night, chasing a dream? Matthew 10:31: "Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows."

He loves us! He will never forsake us!

God truly is great, all the time!

So, I fell asleep again and received Matthew 12:1: "At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were hungry, and began to pluck the ears of corn and to eat."

This is where I was having trouble connecting the dots, so to speak. What did the two scriptures, Mat. 10:31,12:1 have to do with each other?

The Sabbath Was Made For Man

From the two scriptures, we learn that Jesus loves (values) his followers (disciples) more than many sparrows, and, therefore, rebukes the Pharisees, who say that the poor and/or hungry cannot eat on the Sabbath. Basically, He is telling them that, once again, they do not understand the spirit of Law.

It seems Jesus was a bit of a rebel. We know He could have easily turned two ears of corn into a full meal for His disciples, but He did not. He knew that the Pharisees were watching and would criticize them for plucking, cleaning and eating the corn on the Sabbath. He used the opportunity to teach the Pharisees, as well as His disciples, about the Sabbath: The Sabbath was made for man; man was not made for the Sabbath; and, that the spirit of the Sabbath was to do the Lord's Will: to worship your God; and, to care for, feed and heal the sick and needy and poor in spirit; and, not to stay locked up in your house, cruelly letting the stricken suffer alone.

That being said, what did Holy Spirit want us to know about today? I sometimes pray for God to give me His Word for His children today; what does He want us to know today?

With wars and rumors of wars, inflation up 40%, threats of famine and threats of empty shelves at grocery stores, plagues, pestilence, signs and wonders, happening all around us and the world, Jesus Christ wants us to know that He loves (values) us! more than many sparrows! 

Jesus loves us! He has not forsaken us. We will be plucking fresh ears of corn, and doing God's work. He is setting us free to serve Him!

It also shows us, however, that we should know how to fend for ourselves. Jesus tells us that we will be persecuted for His name: "and his disciples were hungry"; that sounds a bit persecuted, hungry enough to pluck the corn on the Sabbath, in front of Jesus.

You would think they would be well fed, traveling with the King of Kings. Even so, traveling with the King of Kings, already having seen the miracles of which He was capable, i.e., casting out demons; healing those impaired from birth, et cetera, they still fed themselves, fended for themselves. They were well capable of feeding themselves. After all, He gave us every herb and every tree for food. Gen. 1

As God has shared with us previously, the Harvest has been ongoing for some time. Now, however, is the time for everyone, believers and unbelievers, to reap what they have sown. Blessings and curses, curses and blessings: The giving will get more to give, to do the Lord's work, and the thieves will pay back sevenfold:

"But if he (the thief) be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house." Prov. 6:31

This is the time into which we are coming, a glimpse, if you will, for God's children to see the paradise promised. The story, however, does not end here. Some men (unbelievers) will still have nothing but evil thoughts continually. Some hearts will be hardened forever, and some will be awakened forever! Praise God.

What we choose to do with our blessings is up to us. I pray that whatever we do collectively, as the body of Christ, will light up the world with God's light, so that the ones who love darkness because their deeds are evil will never again be able to dim the Light of Christ around the world.  John 3:19 below. 

Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

<![CDATA[GOD IS SHINING HIS LIGHT]]>Thu, 17 Mar 2022 13:50:58 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/shining-his-light

Heavenly Father, thank you for shining Your Light and exposing the darkness, and thank you for reassuring me for the last few years that you were doing just that! Let Your words always be mine, and let Your children hear them. Amen.

Have you noticed that the sun seems to be really, really, I mean, really bright, for this time of year, winter and early spring? Well, that is because it is. Now, I have done no investigation or research into this, absolutely zero, except for seeing a video from a trusted source that showed the estimated UV for February is around 5.0, and the actual UV reading for that day in February 2022 was 9.45, which is a summer UV reading. I cannot post the video I saw, because the poster has made it 'private,' but, honestly, I do not need a UV meter to know that the sun is brighter this year! 

God is great - All the time!

Here is where I am going with this: One of the first things God began putting on my heart a few years ago, around 2019, is that He is "shining His Light and exposing the darkness." Now, I had accounts on social(ism) media at the time I received these words, and even though I had no idea the words came from God at that time, I posted them anywhere and everywhere I possibly could for two years. Just one sentence, really: God is shining His Light and exposing the darkness, or some form of that phrase.

​Considering now how we can see the spiritual awakening that is happening to His children around us, the bright sun this year, His Light is literally e
xposing the darkness, little by little, in God's time.

Soon, there will be a landslide 'awakening' on every front: political corruption, spiritual, human rights, including, most importantly abortion, which will be abolished.

Though they will try with every ounce of their being, 'they' will be unable to contain the awakening!
The following declaration is something else that God put on my heart after the fraudulent 2020 election:

Trump Won! (God Won!)

Roe v. Wade will be overturned!

Abortion will be abolished!


Right now even, we see the Supreme Court of the United States determining whether or not Roe v. Wade will be overturned!! Praise God. Amen. Amen. Amen.

It is now time for all things to take place which God has shared with so many over the last few years. He is indeed shining His Light and exposing the darkness. There is a great Spiritual War, Spiritual Awakening, Spiritual Revolution and Spiritual Revival taking place right before our eyes. God is pouring out His Spirit into His children around the world, shaking them, and awakening them! Hallelujah! Amen.

Now is the time for God's reckoning, and His great harvest of both blessings for His Chosen, and curses for the wicked. Even so, 'do not rejoice when your enemies fall. . .' Proverbs 24:17.  But, instead, pray that your family and friends, and God's children everywhere, have the blood of Jesus Christ protecting the lintel of their doors, as the Biblical Passover is at hand. God's truth and justice will prevail.


Make sure your spiritual house is in order by reading His Word,  meditating on it, and praying for guidance and understanding. Pray for His Will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. Pray for all things hidden to be revealed. Most importantly, pray without ceasing.

Hallelujah! Praise God. Thank you, Jesus! Amen.


These are not just words. God's Word is alive, active and powerful. So what, then, does it mean?

It means, if you want the faith that comes from hearing God, then Read the Bible, because once you hear God, then you understand faith​. ​
 Amen.

<![CDATA[THE TRIUMPHS OF FAITH]]>Tue, 15 Mar 2022 13:33:56 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/the-triumphs-of-faith


Heavenly Father, thank you for your many blessings. Thank you for holding us blameless in a crooked and perverse generation. Thank you for giving us the power to tread on scorpions and serpents, and for proclaiming that 'no harm shall by any means comes to us.' Let Your Will be done in our lives and on earth, as it is in Heaven, and let Your words always be mine. Praise God! Amen.

Today, as I was watching Prophet Robin Bullock's The Eleventh Hour live stream from March 8, 2022 (see video below) about living 'by faith,' I realized, yet again, exactly how great our God is! One week earlier, on March 1, 2022, I posted a blog titled "By Faith." (Read "By Faith" here.)  If God has a word to be said, He will make sure it is said, all around the world, any which way He can, however we are listening!

In Robin's video below, he talks about, among other things, Hebrews 11, The Triumphs of Faith, which shows how man's faith in God has sustained and saved mankind since Abel. It is truly amazing! 

By faith, Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, the people of Israel, the walls of Jericho, Rahab the prostitute, and many others, kings and prophets, all by faith in God, perpetuated mankind's existence and blessings from God. Hallelujah! Praise God! Amen.

Hebrews 11

The Triumphs of Faith

"By faith we understand that the worlds (universe, ages) were framed and created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.

By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which it was testified of him that he was righteous, and God testified by accepting his gifts. And though he died, yet through [this act of] faith he still speaks.
        (See God's word to me about Cain and Abel, here.)

5 By faith Enoch was caught up and taken to heaven so that he would not have a glimpse of death; and he was not found because God had taken him; for even before he was taken [to heaven], he received the testimony [still on record] that he had walked with God and pleased Him. 

But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him.

By faith Noah, being warned by God about events not yet seen, in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his family. By this [act of obedience] he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness which comes by faith.

By faith Abraham, when he was called [by God], obeyed by going to a place which he was to receive as an inheritance; and he went, not knowing where he was going. 

By faith he lived as a foreigner in the promised land, as in a strange land, living in tents [as nomads] with Isaac and Jacob, who were fellow heirs of the same promise. 

10 For he was looking forward to the city which has foundations, [an eternal, heavenly city] whose architect and builder is God. 

11 By faith even Sarah herself received the ability to conceive [a child], even [when she was long] past the normal age for it, because she considered Him who had given her the promise to be reliable and true [to His word]. 

12 So from one man, though he was [physically] as good as dead, were born as many descendants as the stars of heaven in number, and innumerable as the sand on the seashore." . . ."

17 "By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises [of God] was ready to sacrifice his only son [of promise];" . . ."


20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau, even regarding things to come. 

21 By faith Jacob, as he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, and bowed in worship, leaning on the top of his staff. 

22 By faith Joseph, when he was dying, referred to [the promise of God for] the exodus of the sons of Israel [from Egypt], and gave instructions concerning [the burial of] his bones [in the land of the promise].


23 By faith Moses, after his birth, was hidden for three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful and divinely favored child; and they were not afraid of the king’s (Pharaoh’s) decree. 

24 By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, 25 because he preferred to endure the hardship of the people of God rather than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin." . . ."

27 "By faith he left Egypt, being unafraid of the wrath of the king; for he endured [steadfastly], as seeing Him who is unseen. 

28 By faith he kept the Passover and the sprinkling of the blood [on the doorposts], so that the destroyer of the firstborn would not touch them (the firstborn of Israel). 

29 By faith the people [of Israel] crossed the Red Sea as though they were passing through dry land; but when the Egyptians attempted it they were drowned.


30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they had been encircled for seven days [by Joshua and the sons of Israel]. 

31 By faith Rahab the prostitute was not destroyed along with those who were disobedient, because she had welcomed the spies [sent by the sons of Israel] in peace.


32 And what more shall I say? For time will fail me if I tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets, 

33 who by faith subdued kingdoms, administered justice, obtained promised blessings, closed the mouths of lions, 

34 extinguished the power of [raging] fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became mighty and unbeatable in battle, putting enemy forces to flight. 

35 Women received back their dead by resurrection; and others were tortured [to death], refusing to accept release [offered on the condition of denying their faith], so that they would be resurrected to a better life; 

36 and others experienced the trial of mocking and scourging [amid torture], and even chains and imprisonment. 

37 They were stoned [to death], they were sawn in two, they were lured with tempting offers [to renounce their faith], they were put to death by the sword; they went about wrapped in the skins of sheep and goats, utterly destitute, oppressed, cruelly treated 

38 (people of whom the world was not worthy), wandering in deserts and mountains and [living in] caves and holes in the ground."


These are those whom will rule with Christ for a thousand years (the Millennial Reign). Rev. 20:4


Let's pray that we all, by faith, endure and remain steadfast in Christ until the end, because, truly, ours is the Kingdom of God​!

Love and light in Christ,
Melanie


ROBIN BULLOCK: THE ELEVENTH HOUR

​"BY FAITH"

]]>
<![CDATA["BY FAITH"]]>Tue, 01 Mar 2022 19:23:33 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/by-faith

 
Heavenly Father, thank you for your many blessings in our lives. Thank you for not forsaking us, and for your unending grace (favor) upon us. Let Your words and Your will be mine, and let Your children with eyes and ears, see and hear the words. Amen.

This is another aspect of the same story, which God began putting on my heart around the end of last year, and just today, as I was reading Genesis, yet again, showed me the following scripture, and shone His Light on it for my discernment:
 
“And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the Lord hath cursed.” Genesis 5:29
 
Gen. 5:29 is one of those scriptures I read, put to the back of my mind, and then keep going, because what the literal heck does it mean? I mean, how on earth did Noah ‘comfort’ anyone when all of mankind died in the flood except Noah and seven other human beings?
 
So, the LORD cursed the ground to which Genesis 5:29 refers when Adam and Eve ate the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil:
 
Genesis 3
 
God Curses the Ground for Adam’s Sake
 
17 “. . . cursed is the ground for your sake; in sorrow shall you eat of it all the days of your life; 18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to you . . .”

Also, at this same time, God tells Adam that the ground will be cursed all the days of his life. 
What else do we know from the time of Adam?

Well, we know that there was no rain, only a mist that came up from the ground:

Genesis 2:5-6 “5. . . for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth . . . 6 But a mist went up from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.”
 
I read somewhere previously that this ‘mist’ came up only in certain areas, and the vegetation grew only in those areas. The rest of the land was desolate and, one could say, only yielded ‘thorns’ and ‘thistles.’

We can confirm from Hebrews 11:7 below that there was no rain until the time of the great flood:
 
“By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house . . .” Hebrews 11:7
 
‘Being warned of God of things not seen as yet.’
 
Of what ‘things not seen as yet’ did God warn Noah at that time? Scripture tells us that God warned Noah of rain, and a lot of it!
 
“For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights . . .” Genesis 7:4
 
So, God warned Noah of rain, and 'by faith. . . moved with fear,' Noah listened to God. Noah, nor anyone alive, had ever heard of, or seen, rain before this time. The only water they knew of, 
since the time of Adam, over 1,600 years (from Adam's birth in 4114 BC to the great flood around 2458 BC), was a mist that came up from the ground. Genesis 2:6. This is why everyone was carrying on their lives as if nothing were going to happen, eating, drinking, marrying and having children. Luke 17:27

'By faith . . . moved with fear,' Noah listened to God, but no one else had the same faith in God, or fear in God's words through Noah, and they would not listen to Noah’s warnings. They did not know what rain was until it began to rain, and then, of course, it was too late for them. They had not listened to or obeyed God, and they had not followed the standard, or flag, God placed in their lives.
 
As I wrote that, the Holy Spirit said write the following: We should always follow the standard, or flag, God places in our lives, to warn and direct us in times of trouble. We see example after example in the Bible of God telling His chosen how to survive the times: If the water is foretold to rise, build a boat; if the rocks are falling, take shelter; if there is famine in the land, store food; if an army is coming, run to the walled cities, et cetera. God will never allow His children to be tempted more than they can withstand! Listen to God!


In conclusion, ending where I began, at Genesis 5:29: “And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the Lord hath cursed.”

Ultimately, Noah did comfort us, not only by being found righteous in God’s eyes, and thereby saving mankind, but, also, because God blessed Noah and his sons, opened the heavens and caused it to begin raining on the earth for the first time in over 1,600 years. This gave mankind the opportunity to rise above the 'thorns' and 'thistles' with which the ground was cursed for Adam's sake.

Finally, we know that Noah comforted us because God sealed His new covenant with Noah by placing a rainbow in the clouds. God said that when He sees the rainbow, it will remind Him of His covenant with man, and to never again destroy the earth with a flood.

God is great - all the time!


So, are you listening to God 'by faith,' and 'moved with fear' even? As Jesus said, you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe who have not seen me. John 20:29

Hallelujah! Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

<![CDATA["DENOUNCE EVIL"]]>Thu, 17 Feb 2022 18:50:54 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/denounce-evilTHE NARROW AND WIDE GATES
Matthew 7

13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad and easy to travel is the path that leads the way to destruction and eternal loss, and there are many who enter through it. 

14 But small is the gate and narrow and difficult to travel is the path that leads the way to [everlasting] life, and there are few who find it."


​This is a word God has been putting on my heart for the last year, with the first word on February 23, 2021, almost one year ago, "Denounce Evil," followed by: 

8/28/21 - Man is a slow learner
9/13/21 - The sins of Jeroboam
12/14/21 - Work With God, Not Against Him

All glory and honor and praise and thanksgiving to God Most High. Let Your words be mine, and not my own, and let Your children with ears to hear, hear. In Jesus' name. Amen.

2/23/21 - Denounce Evil

This was a tough one, one of those words where I opened a blog, put basically the title, "Denounce Evil," and saved the date. I opened the blank document a few times over the year, but I was clueless. 

This morning though, God dropped a doozy on me. When I opened my website to start a new blog about the 'doozy,' I opened instead an untitled blog that I created around November 2021, which was a combination of these words from God on the dates I mention above, including "Denounce Evil." Now, because God is great, all the time, the 'doozy' He dropped on me this morning, finalizes His words to me given on the dates above, which He has given me over the last year.

His first word to me almost one year ago on February 23, 2021, "Denounce Evil," should have been enough for me to write this blog, but as His Word tells us:


"For though by this time you ought to be teachers [because of the time you have had to learn these truths], you actually need someone to teach you again the elementary principles of God’s word . . ." Hebrews 5:12

So, even though, over the last few years, God has literally changed my life, and how I lived it, I did not understand the full meaning of the changes as they related to evil in our every day lives. Evil that we let into our homes, and our children's lives, every day!

Let me try to explain. I knew that God had willed me to stop watching horror movies, especially movies about spirits, demons, sorcery, wizards, the underworld (vampires), but, also, bloody, violent movies. All of my favorites, by the way! So, this was a BIG change for my life, but it was really an involuntary change, meaning I had no control over it. All of a sudden, I realized that I could no longer watch movies like that, because they went against everything godly.

It was an involuntary action or change in my life (God's Will), and this morning, He turned on a light inside of me that shone clear as day:

Woe to us! We have gone the 'defiant way of Cain,' who thought he could climb into heaven some other way than through the door. That one is a thief and a robber. John 10:1

What does that mean? It means, we may say to ourselves, or anyone who will listen, Oh, it is just a movie, or just a poster on my child's wall, or just a t-shirt, or just some jewelry, et cetera, but to the demon or spirit it was created to deify, it will always be a sound of victory, representing defeat over God's precious chosen, Us! 

Cain knew right and wrong and the consequences, and he chose to be disobedient to God, and, by so doing, obedient to Satan and evil. Instead of worshipping God, he chose to worship Satan. See my blog about 'Cain and Abel' here.

Satan is the ruler of this world, and the "things" in it are his to give:

Matthew 4

9 "And [Satan] says unto him [Jesus], All these things will I give you, if you will fall down and worship me.

10 Then said Jesus unto him, Get you hence, Satan: for it is written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve."

So, idol worship is worshipping (spending time with) any 'thing' more than you worship (spend time with) God.

In fact, we are specifically told to meditate on His teachings day and night: "But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His law [His precepts and teachings] he [habitually] meditates day and night." Psalm 1:1

Trust me, I know firsthand the Truth hurts. I mean, I just recently found a couple of websites where you can watch practically any movie you want to watch, which in times past, would have been a gold mine for me. Now, though, I find very little worth, or worthy of, watching, and when I watch those movies now, with my new 'spiritual eye,' I see their in plain sight, hidden, agenda, which was and is to corrupt our minds, trying to keep us from moving towards God's glory, our rightful inheritance.

Satan is the ruler of this world!

1 John 2:

15 "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

17 And the world passes away, and the lust thereof: but he that does the will of God abides for ever."

So, bottom line, you 'worship' whatever you spend the most time on during the day, which is sad because most people worship their jobs more than anything else. All is not lost, however, because as I have written before, you can, and should, still worship God, even while you are at work, or driving in the car, or standing in line. Hallelujah! Praise God. Amen.

Now, it is not really our fault, but it is. Meaning, Adam and Eve chose sin for us initially, but God, in His infinite Power and Wisdom, gives us every possible escape from temptation. 1 Corinthians 10:13

The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. Matthew 26:41

Next up, God put on my heart on August 28, 2021, that "Man is a Slow Learner."

I chuckled to myself as I was writing this because the Holy Spirit showed me that this message was meant for me! I am a slow learner! Clearly, since it took me almost a full year to understand the word from Him, "Denounce Evil"!

8/28/21 - Man is a Slow Learner

Joshua, the son of Nun, whom was Moses' assistant ruling over the Israelites, and whom assumed the role of leading them after Moses died, did not defeat all of God's enemies before he died. God left many enemies to test the Israelites. The Israelites lived in obedience to God until the death of Joshua, and the death of the remaining elders after him. After that, they "did evil in the sight of the Lord," so He sold them into slavery for eight years, and they repeatedly did evil in His sight.


When you read the Old Testament, you cannot help but wonder why the Israelites were so stubborn? The LORD was actually with them, showing them signs, wonders and miracles, first in Egypt, and, then, during their 40 years in the wilderness. Yet, Moses was gone only 40 days and 40 nights to talk to God, and the people had already convinced Aaron (a Levite and the High Priest for God) to make them a golden calf to worship, and he did!

In the generations that came afterwards, the ratio of bad kings outnumbered good kings, and thus the people who followed these bad leaders were bad as well. The Israelites never seemed to learn from their mistakes. When times got really bad, and the false idols they were worshipping did not answer their prayers to save them, because they never did, could or would, they then prayed to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, whom they knew all along would save them, and He did, time and time again.

As you can see from the following chart (courtesy of biblesanity.org), there were a lot more bad rulers than good.

Satan is very good at his job.

The next thing God put on my heart related to "Denounce Evil," was the "The Sins of Jeroboam," on September 13, 2021.

9/13/21 - The Sins of Jeroboam

Having researched this at the time, I can tell you what those sins were.

First, Jeroboam, told the Israelites that they did not have to travel all the way to Jerusalem every year to worship their God, the God of Israel, but they could just worship him more conveniently at one of the two 'high places,' which Jeroboam had built.

Second, Jeroboam decreed that anyone could serve as a High Priest at his high places, even though the Mosaic Law said that the high priests had to be from the Levitical line.

Third, Jeroboam made golden cows, idols, and placed them at the high places for people to worship! 

You can see from the chart above that ALL of the kings of Israel after Jeroboam were bad, which in the Bible describes as "followed the sins of Jeroboam."

How does this relate to our lives? As I was typing this, God gave me that answer! In the scenario above, in the order given:

First, Satan tells us that we do not need to travel all the way to church, but that we can just worship God more conveniently from our own homes, on the network Satan built, on our computers or televisions.

Acts 2

1 "When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place

and suddenly a sound came from heaven like a rushing violent wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting." 

"Not forsaking our meeting together [as believers for worship and instruction], as is the habit of some . . ." Hebrews 10:25

So, "They were all together in one place." They did not stop meeting together, as is the habit of 'some.' Not at home, staring at a computer or television, or, if Satan has his way, not worshipping at all!

Ironically, this word was to me in September. My husband and I started attending church about a month later, for the first time in the 18 years of our marriage, which I just realized as I was typing this!!

Second, in 'the Sins of Jeroboam' analogy above, Satan has decreed that anyone can serve as a high priest at his churches, places of worship, especially anyone not teaching sound doctrine. 2 Timothy 4:3

So, was God warning me to find a church that teaches sound doctrine? Most likely, especially since we went to another church first, where you could feel the presence of the Lord and Holy Spirit were stifled, nonexistent.

Third, Satan has made many idols for man to worship in his world. Remember, you worship whatever you do or think about the most:

"
Do you not know that when you continually offer yourselves to someone to do his will, you are the slaves of the one whom you obey, either [slaves] of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness (right standing with God)?" Romans 6:16.

To withstand Satan, we are told to clothe ourselves with God's Word Ephesians 6:11-24, and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.' 2 Corinthians 10:5. Amen.

Now, God's last word to me (that I was awake to hear) on this subject, until today, was back on December 14, 2021, "Work With God, Not Against Him":

12/14/21: Work With God, Not Against Him

If we understand God's Power, the Power of His Word and His Love, why do we not all work with Him, instead of against Him?

When I think back on my own, personal experiences with God and the Holy Spirit, beginning when I was 13 years old, again in my 30s, and then not again until 58, I knew from these experiences that there was something supernatural out there, if and when I could tap into it, something that could change the very essence of who I was. See 'My Testimony to God's Power here.

I did not understand this supernatural force until recently though, and, or course, I still do not understand it fully. Even though I knew all of these years that there was something out there, I still ran from it instead of embracing it.

Here again, I now know this message, "Work With God, Not Against Him," was for me, and I know what it is about. One day, when I decide to admit it, and listen to Him, I will write about it. Amen!


So, really, not much has changed:

Over six thousand years later, and man is still stubborn!

​Satan is still deceiving.


God's end game is still for man to reap his rightful inheritance.

​And, Satan's end game is still​ to stop that, at all costs, while unwittingly or unwillingly moving man towards salvation. God is great, all the time.

Denounce Evil! 

"Do not participate in the worthless and unproductive deeds of darkness, but instead expose them [by exemplifying personal integrity, moral courage, and godly character];" Ephesians 5:11

Not by words but by power! Corinthians 4:20

Hallelujah! Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

<![CDATA[THE KINGDOM OF GOD]]>Mon, 14 Feb 2022 13:45:28 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/the-kingdom-of-godMICHEL ANGELO'S
​"THE CREATION OF MAN"
Notice that God and His children
are inside a human heart!

20 "And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God comes not with observation:

21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you."


Heavenly Father, thank you thank you thank you for Your many blessings in my life. We are weak, so thank you for being strong. Thank you for Your Word that says, Ask and I will show you great and mighty things, and thank you for Your words to me. Let Your words and Your Will always be mine, and let Your children with eyes and ears, see and hear. Hallelujah! Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Something that God has put heavy on my heart recently is 'The Kingdom of God.' In fact, as I started to write this blog, and I typed the title above, 'The Kingdom of God,' it seemed familiar, and I felt I had just typed a blog with the same title, and, sure enough, I did, on February 3, 2022, which you can read here.

As He usually does, however, God kept pouring out information into my spirit, even giving me further word on it through a prophet, after I had already written about it on February 3. God is truly amazing and truly works in mysterious ways. Praise God. Hallelujah! Amen.

So, what about 'The Kingdom of God'? I mean, I was aware of a kingdom of heaven and a kingdom of God in the Bible. When I first read the Bible, I guess I felt, thought, assumed, that the kingdom of heaven and kingdom of God was the same thing. Then, I realized, or learned (God showed me), that 'The Kingdom of God' is within you:

"Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you." Luke 17:21.

I mean, we have all read or heard that, but, even so, what does it really mean?

In my desire to understand God and His Word over the last couple of years, God has put some videos in my path about physics, our universe, and God's Word. See those videos here and hereThese videos show that God's Word is alive; our words are alive; the Bible is real and explains the worlds in terms a five-year-old can understand; and, also, that our bodies are partially energy, which can never be destroyed, only transformed, as God's Word tells us, from one glory to more glory, in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Still, though, what is 'The Kingdom of God'? The Kingdom of God is God's Power, His 'Choicest Grace.' 1 Corinthians 12:31

Now, 'grace' is one of those words in the Bible that I really did not understand until recently. I think it was even a bit frustrating to me, not to fully understand it, and to keep reading Scripture about God's graces, because, let's face it, if you cannot understand the words, then they are just words. I thank God for waking me up from Satan's blindness to God's Power. This awakening comes in stages, not all at once, and, of course, you do not realize you were blinded until you actually see!

​GRACE

Definition of grace (Merriam-Webster)

1aunmerited divine assistance given to humans for their regeneration or sanctification

ba virtue coming from God

ca state of sanctification enjoyed through divine assistance

SANCTIFY


Definition of sanctify (Merriam-Webster)

1to set apart to a sacred purpose or to religious use CONSECRATE

2to free from sin PURIFY


So, 'grace' means we were freed from sin and set apart for God's sacred purpose, not because we earned it, but a favor from God, for no other reason than He loved us.

Now, when Jesus told the Pharisee in Mark 12:34 that he was 'not far from the Kingdom of God,' it was because the Pharisee knew the words about loving God and loving others as yourself, but he did not have God's Power ... of doing and being like Christ.

"For 'The Kingdom of God' is not in word, but in power." 1 Corinthians 4:20

'The Kingdom of God' is not in word. It is not in saying, talking, and telling others: 'Love God and love your neighbor as yourself.' 

'The Kingdom of God' is in power, in doing, in being like Christ, loving God, and loving everyone, unselfishly.

Definition of power (Merriam-Webster)

1a(1)ability to act or produce an effect.

'The Kingdom of God' is in power, 'the ability to act or produce an effect,' an unselfish love, not in word, or talking, or preaching, but in doing and being, like Christ.


The Divine Kingdom

"In the days of those [final ten] kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will its sovereignty be left for another people; but it will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it will stand forever." Daniel 2:44

God IS setting up 'His kingdom,' which is His children, believers, who are awakening to the Power of God, 'The Kingdom of God' within them! The kingdom will be turned over to Jesus, and Jesus gave only two commandments, which now give new meaning to me about what I have been saying for the last couple of years. I even made a meme about it (see below), which is that Jesus gave two commandments 'which could change the world':  love God and love your neighbor as yourself.

Scripturally, and literally, that is exactly what the two commandments are intended to do: ​Change the world!

By realizing God's Power in being and doing His 'Choicest Grace,' unselfish love, and thereby receiving 'The Kingdom of God' within us, we WILL change the world around us, and darkness will literally flee! Hallelujah! Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

So, believers, who have repented, turned away from sin, and brought into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ:


  • ​Are members of the body of Christ by the grace (favor) of God.
     
  • And, finally, not last and certainly not least, Are children of the Most High God, and His kingdom, 'The Kingdom of God,' is available for all mankind, who desire and seek God's 'Choicest Grace,' not in word, but in power, which is doing and being, unselfishly loving, like Christ!

Are you talking . . . or doing?

"For 'The Kingdom of God' is not in word, but in power." 1 Corinthians 4:20

Not by saying ..... but by doing. Not by words, but by power, God's Power.

James 1


21 "So get rid of all uncleanness and all that remains of wickedness, and with a humble spirit receive the word [of God] which is implanted [actually rooted in your heart], which is able to save your souls.

22 But prove yourselves doers of the word [actively and continually obeying God’s precepts], and not merely listeners [who hear the word but fail to internalize its meaning], deluding yourselves [by unsound reasoning contrary to the truth].

23 For if anyone only listens to the word without obeying it, he is like a man who looks very carefully at his natural face in a mirror;

24 for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he immediately forgets what he looked like. 

25 But he who looks carefully into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and faithfully abides by it, not having become a [careless] listener who forgets but an active doer [who obeys], he will be blessed and favored by God in what he does [in his life of obedience]."

God Bless each and every one of you! Jesus loves you, and so do I!

​Awaken!

​Amen.

<![CDATA[THE MILLENNIAL REIGN]]>Wed, 09 Feb 2022 19:20:08 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/the-millennial-reignAPOPHIS (which translated means "hell")
"So they will fear the name of the Lord from the west

And His glory from the rising of the sun.

For He will come in like a narrow, rushing stream

Which the breath of the Lord drives [overwhelming the enemy]." Isaiah 59:19


Heavenly Father, thank you for Your many blessings. Thank you for Your Word, and Your words through me. Let them always be Your words and not my own, and let Your children with ears to hear, hear. In Jesus' name. Amen.

First, I do not know why God picked me for these words, but I thank Him for it. I was certainly the least in Spirit my entire life, almost 62 years. See my Testimony to God's Power here. He will always lead you to do the right thing though.
 
Hallelujah. Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

This is an amazing time we are in. He is freely pouring out His gifts and talents to His children. I heard something like, 10 years ago, there were 10 prophets. Today, there are literally over ten thousand, and His Word confirms this will happen. Acts 2:17

There is so much going on around us in the world right now though. Prophets have been saying that God's plan is getting ready to be revealed to everyone, the corruption is being abolished, and God's people are being bandaged, healed and revived. Also, see my blog titled, "The Narrow Gate" for more about God's Spiritual War. 
 
So, the night of January 25, 2022, in my sleep, I received the words "2,000 years," and just a feeling, or a sense of knowing, that it was about Jesus Christ's Millennial Reign.
 
I first posted this blog on January 27, 2022. It was posted for about a week before I took it down, because I realized that God was still forming His word in me about the subject, and that I was hasty in my conclusions and in posting the blog before God was finished. Forgive me, Father.
 
So, what did God’s word to me, “2,000 years” and the Millennial Reign of Christ mean? I now know it to mean that 2,000 years after the death of Jesus Christ, or on or around the year 2033, He will return to finish bandaging, healing and reviving us, and we will reign with Him for 1,000 years.
 
Remember, no one knows the exact date of His return, not the angels or the son, and I do not claim to know the exact date. Matthew 24:36. 
 
Now hear me out. Let’s look at some other Scripture God showed me that points us to the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ being 2,000 years after His death:
 
Luke 10:25-37, the Parable of the Good Samaritan. Let’s look at this parable from a different angle than typically recited. In this interpretation, the ‘injured man’ is mankind. The priest and the Levite represent the Law, which was condemnation to sin and death, and the ‘Good Samaritan’ is Jesus Christ who will bandage, heal, revive and raise us up. Hosea 6:1-3
 
In this parable, the Good Samaritan (Jesus Christ) bandages and heals the injured man, and takes him to the Inn. The Inn represents the church. The Good Samaritan (Jesus) gives the innkeeper (the church leader) ‘two pence’ and says, I will repay you when I return, and whatever more you spend.
 
If we consider that a day is a thousand years to God, and a thousand years a day, as written in 2 Peter 3:8, then Jesus is saying that He has paid amply for our safekeeping until His return, one pence per each one thousand years, or 2,000 years after His death, on or around the year 2,033.
 
Moving on, let’s look at the six days of creation in the book of Genesis for our next scriptural interpretation. Genesis 1:1-31, 2:1-3
 
God created everything in six days, and He saw that it was very good, so He rested from all His work, and sanctified the seventh day, or made it Holy, free of sin and guilt.
 
Consider, again, that a day is a thousand years to God, and a thousand years a day, and the creation story took place in six days, or 6,000 years. God has not forsaken us; before the world began, His plan was for man to have eternal life. Titus 1:2. From the time He created us on the six thousandth year (sixth day) of creation, He gave His promise of salvation (His Son), who will rule with His Chosen for 1,000 years, from the six thousandth year (after man's creation), until the seven thousandth year, the sanctified and Holy day, when we will return to God forever.

Note that 6,000 years after man's creation also happens to be 2,000 years after Jesus' resurrection, which coincides with the Parable of the Good Samaritan interpretation above.
 
To further validate God's word to me regarding this interpretation of Scripture, let us look at a calendar from the creation of man, roughly 4,004 BC, until today, 2022 AD. These dates are only rough estimates, because, again, no one knows the exact date of His return:
From the creation of man around roughly 4,004 BC, to today, February 8, 2022, is 6,025 years. Six thousand years since the creation of man, and the time when Jesus will rule with us for 1,000 years. Roughly, 1,000 before the coming of the New Heavens and New Earth, the sanctified, Holy Day, made free of sin and guilt, the seventh day, or seven thousandth year, when all former things will pass.

Hosea 6:1-3 further tells us approximately where we are in God’s timeline:

“Come and let us return [in repentance] to the Lord,

For He has torn us, but He will heal us;

He has wounded us, but He will bandage us.

After two days He will revive us;

On the third day He will raise us up

That we may live before Him.

So let us know and become personally acquainted with Him; let us press on to know and understand fully the [greatness of the] Lord [to honor, heed, and deeply cherish Him].

His appearing is prepared and is as certain as the dawn,

And He will come to us [in salvation] like the [heavy] rain,

Like the spring rain watering the earth.”

Amen. 

So, from the time of our creation, roughly 6,000 years ago, He has wounded and torn us, and bandaged and healed us. Hosea 6:1.
 
What proof, you say?
 
Well, think about it, from the dark ages (approximately 400 AD to 800 AD); to the wild, wild west (1800s to 1900s); the emancipation of black people in 1863; women’s rights, late 1800s to early 1900s; 1917, when Jerusalem was liberated; 1948, when Israel was established as a State; then, in the 1900s, of course, everything exploded in medicine, manufacturing, technology and science.
 
Even so, I think it is fair to say that a significant number of people, even some of God's people, 'believers,' feel torn and wounded right about now. If you are still feeling that way, have you returned in repentance [turned away from sin] to the Lord, brought into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ, so He will heal, bandage and revive you? Do we have faith in the unseen, the invisible, or are we like Doubting Thomas, who had to touch Jesus' wounds to believe? John 20:24-31
 
Now, after two days, or 2,000 years after Christ’s death, or roughly the year 2033, He will revive us, to rule with Christ in His Millennial Reign. Hosea 6:2.
 
On the third day, or roughly 3,000 years after Christ’s death, around 3,033, He will raise us up that we may live before Him forever, in the New Heaven and New Earth, and all former things will pass away. Hosea 6:3
 
Still not enough proof? I saw a video (see video below) a year or two ago that kind of shook me about an asteroid called 'Apophis.' Even though I put it to the back of my mind, it has always been in the back of my mind, and now I know why God showed it to me. The following video is not the original video I saw, but is basically the same content or idea.
 
In the original video, they said that the people who found the asteroid and named it 'Apophis,' which translated means 'Hell' - You can't make this stuff up -  had reported that it was going to hit earth in 2029. Then, they said that after NASA got ahold of the information, suddenly it was no longer going to hit earth, but would 'narrowly miss' us. Hallelujah. Praise God. Amen.

The following video says that it will pass earth twice, 2029 and .... seven years later, 2036. 




​It may surprise many people to know that nowhere in God's Word does He ever tell His chosen to stand there and let the rocks fall on their heads. To the contrary. Praise Emmanuel, God is With Us, always protecting us, but He is with us, protecting us, as believers, through the Holy Spirit, feeding us His word for the times, His Plan, His timeline even, either directly or through His prophets. This is how He communicates with us: Through the Holy Spirit inside us, if we are listening, or through His prophets. Not through the fake news or social(ism) media. 

Wake up before it is too late!

 
‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit.' [the Holy Spirit]  Zechariah 4:6
 
For those who obey Him, those who repent (turn away from sin), which means reading His Word and praying, loving, doing, being ... the light of the world (or, at least earnestly trying - God knows our hearts).  

He never allows us to be tempted more than we can withstand. 1 Corinthians 10:12-14. And He will not start now.
 
In the Bible, the standard or flag is raised to direct the people in difficult times. I read something some time ago that said the standard was raised for only a couple of reasons: To tell the people to prepare for war; or, to tell them to take shelter (there may be a third reason). Jeremiah 4:6, 4:21. The standard is also referred to in Isaiah and Numbers.

"So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him." Isaiah 59:19 (KJV)

Remember, He is not coming to bring peace, but a sword of division between righteous and unrighteous. We must be prepared by wearing the Full Armor of God, so we can withstand the wiles of the devil Ephesians 6:11-24. Sometimes I feel like a broken record, but I guess God wants me to be a broken record. Praise God. Amen.

In order to withstand, we must also follow the standard, or flag, God is placing in our lives. The only way we can do this is by listening, to His prophets, and to Him, by inviting the Holy Spirit into our lives, and surrendering to God.
 
He has been preparing His chosen, the believers, for the times to come, and we know people turn to God the most in despair. "The righteous cry, and the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles." Psalm 34:17
 
How can we ascend unless we first descend?
 
How can we be 'born again' unless we first die?

How can we be revived unless we are first torn down and wounded? Hosea 6:1
 
And, if we return to Him in repentance [turning away from sin], He will heal and bandage us. Hosea 6:1. And, on the second day, revive us. Hosea 6:2. And, we will be held blameless in a crooked and perverse generation. Philippians 2:15.

​And, nothing shall by any means hurt us. Luke 10:19
 
Now, I realize this is crazy talk, but it cannot be any crazier than the rest of this blog. I saw a video last year about a time traveler who said the world ends in 3036. See a short movie made by the Nostradamus brothers: Confessions of a Time Traveler, the Man from 3036.

If this link does not work, you may be able to find it on freemoviesfull.com or 123movies.net.


So, following God's Word to me, "2,000 years," after two days, or roughly 2,000 years after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, or around or about the year 2,033, He will revive us to reign with Him for 1,000 years, and then on the third day, or roughly 3,000 years after His death, He will raise us up incorruptible and immortal that we may live before Him forever.

"So they will fear the name of the Lord from the west

And His glory from the rising of the sun.

For He will come in like a narrow, rushing stream

Which the breath [Spirit] of the Lord drives [overwhelming the enemy]." Isaiah 59:19

"For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes as far as the west, so will be the coming [in glory] of the Son of Man [everyone will see Him clearly]." Matthew 24:27

The above video says that only approximately 2 billion people in the world will be able to see the coming of Apophis. There are about 2.5 billion Christians in the world. Is that plus or minus one-half billion that do not wake up in time for that event, the ‘beginning of the birth pangs’? Matthew 24:8

Let me end this blog where I started, with Hosea 6, specifically v's. 1 and 3:

“Come and let us return [in repentance] to the Lord,

For He has torn us, but He will heal us;

He has wounded us, but He will bandage us.

So let us know and become personally acquainted with Him; let us press on to know and understand fully the [greatness of the] Lord [to honor, heed, and deeply cherish Him].

His appearing is prepared and is as certain as the dawn,

And He will come to us [in salvation] like the [heavy] rain,

Like the spring rain watering the earth.”

​Amen.


Make sure your spiritual house is in order. We are here at this very time for God's purpose:

“And your people will rebuild the ancient ruins;

You will raise up and restore the age-old foundations [of buildings that have been laid waste];

You will be called Repairer of the Breach,

Restorer of Streets with Dwellings." 

Isaiah 58:12

We will be called the 'Repairers of the Breach' and 'Restorers of Streets with Dwellings,' in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

He is not coming to bring peace. He coming to bring a sword of division between the righteous and unrighteous. Amen.

​God Bless You!

<![CDATA[WORKS OF OBEDIENCE]]>Mon, 07 Feb 2022 16:20:32 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/works-of-obedience"CALAMITY IS STRIKING THE ENEMIES OF ALMIGHTY GOD"

Heavenly Father, creator of the heavens and the earth, thank you. Thank you for all of your many blessings on the earth, which are ours through Christ Jesus. Fill us with Your Spirit, and let us always speak Your words and not our own. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

These are great times God's children are coming into, if we persevere and remain steadfast in Him until the end [of this event in God's Plan].

Click herehere, and here, to see God's Word to me 2020 through present about sin, death and destruction, but, most importantly, God's forgiveness for the obedient.

Obedience is obeying God, which is not merely saying, "Lord, Lord." In other words, not just saying, I believed in you Lord, Jesus, but he that actually does the will of the Father in heaven. Matthew 7:21-23

Again, broken record incoming, but the will of the Father in heaven is that, yes, we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, so that through Him, we show 
our repentance, or turning away from sin, by living changed lives in obedience to God. By so doing,  God's Light can shine through us, and cause all men everywhere to come to worship, and give all glory, to the One True God, as it is written.

God's Will, will be done, and even the demons know it:

"And they [the demons] screamed out, 'What business do we have [in common] with each other, Son of God? Have You come to torment us before the appointed time [of judgment]?'" Matthew 8:29

Jesus answered the tempter, Satan, ". . . Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God." Matthew 4:3-4

He also said, "For it is not those who merely hear the Law [as it is read aloud] who are just or righteous before God, but it is those who [actually] obey the Law who will be justified [pronounced free of the guilt of sin and declared acceptable to Him]." Romans 2:13


FAITH AND WORKS, WORKS AND FAITH

James 2

Faith and Works

14 "What is the benefit, my fellow believers, if someone claims to have faith but has no [good] works [as evidence]? Can that [kind of] faith save him? [No, a mere claim of faith is not sufficient—genuine faith produces good works.] 

15 If a brother or sister is without [adequate] clothing and lacks [enough] food for each day, 

16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace [with my blessing], [keep] warm and feed yourselves,” but he does not give them the necessities for the body, what good does that do? 

17 So too, faith, if it does not have works [to back it up], is by itself dead [inoperative and ineffective].

18 But someone may say, “You [claim to] have faith and I have [good] works; show me your [alleged] faith without the works [if you can], and I will show you my faith by my works [that is, by what I do].” 

19 You believe that God is one; you do well [to believe that]. The demons also believe [that], and shudder and bristle [in awe-filled terror—they have seen His wrath]! 

20 But are you willing to recognize, you foolish [spiritually shallow] person, that faith without [good] works is useless? 

21 Was our father Abraham not [shown to be] justified by works [of obedience which expressed his faith] when he offered Isaac his son on the altar [as a sacrifice to God]? 

22 You see that [his] faith was working together with his works, and as a result of the works, his faith was completed [reaching its maturity when he expressed his faith through obedience]. 

23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and this [faith] was credited to him [by God] as righteousness and as conformity to His will,” and he was called the friend of God. 

24 You see that a man (believer) is justified by works and not by faith alone [that is, by acts of obedience a born-again believer reveals his faith]. 

25 In the same way, was Rahab the prostitute not justified by works too, when she received the [Hebrew] spies [messengers] as guests and protected them, and sent them away [to escape] by a different route? 

26 For just as the [human] body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works [of obedience] is also dead."


Context is everything in God's Word, and verses that are together should usually be considered in the same context. In v's. 18 and 19 above, James is pointing out that even the demons have faith in One God and tremble or shudder, "so faith [in One God] without works [of obedience to God] is also dead." v. 26 above.

"Works of obedience," not works of good deeds, but works of obedience to God, which, of course, include works of good deeds, but, also, works of obedience to God's call to repent, turn away from sin, awaken to righteousness and His purpose or plan for your life.

Are you listening to God's call? Many hearts will be healed, bandaged and revived now, and on the third day, raised with Christ in the clouds Hosea 6:1-3, but many others will be hardened forever.

Awaken! Awaken from your spiritual complacency.  Romans 13:11

DO'S AND DO NOTS FOR 'SURVIVING' GOD'S PLAN

Do's:
  • Do accept, love and obey God and His only begotten son, Jesus Christ.
  • Do love your neighbor [all people, believers and unbelievers, rich and poor] as yourself. This is not fulfilled by saying 'I love you,' but by 'doing' for others, unselfishly, like Jesus. 
    • All the law and the prophets are fulfilled in these two commands.
  • Do 'bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.' 2 Corinthians 10:5


Do Nots:
  • Do not fear man, who can only hurt the body. Fear God, who can burn both the soul and the body in hell. 
  • Do not love this world or the things in it. All such things are idol worship. 

​There are many other 'Do Nots,'  but if you are doing the 'Do's,' then you do not need to worry about the 'Do Nots,' because all is fulfilled by the doing of the 'Do's.'

Hallelujah. Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

<![CDATA[AWAKEN FROM YOUR SLEEP]]>Mon, 31 Jan 2022 19:02:31 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/awaken-from-your-sleep
"Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame." 1 Corinthians 15:34


​All glory and honor and praise and thanksgiving to the One True God, our Heavenly Father. Let Your words and Your Will be mine, and let those with a mind to understand, see and hear. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

In 2019, God told me that we are in a Spiritual War and a Spiritual Revival. A Spiritual War is not a war in the physical realm, but in the supernatural realm. Ephesians 6:12(Also see my blog titled, 'The Narrow Gate" here) 

You cannot be a warrior for God in this Spiritual War, but will only barely escape through fire 1 Corinthians 3:14-16, if you are not wearing the full armor of God. Ephesians 6:11-24. I know. Broken record. Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Now, as I have said before, we can see the Spiritual Revival happening all around us, here and there, thousands being brought to Jesus Christ. Amen. It was not until a couple of days ago, however, that I came to a very important realization. God turned on my light again, so to speak: The Spiritual Revival is around us, but more importantly, it is inside of us

See more under 'My Testimony to God's Power.'

So, when God's Spiritual Revival began, the world did not all of the sudden become darker. No, it has always been dark, because, as God said, men have nothing but evil thoughts continually. Genesis 6:5

If the world did not become darker, then what did happen? Well, God is awakening His children. Some of us, 'believers,' have awakened from our sleep of spiritual complacency (Romans 13:11 below), and others continue to awaken.

All of a sudden, murdering unborn babies at all, ever, but especially at nine months old in the womb, the day they are suppose to be born, became a real life horror movie, against everything Godly, or morally right. Or, silencing and censoring people on social(ism) media, who do not agree with you, which is called communism by the way. These are just a couple of in-your-face examples, but awakening is so much more. See my blog titled 'Sin No More.'

Awaken from your sleep of spiritual complacency, or I will come like a thief in the night.

Romans 13

[2]Owe nothing to anyone except to [3]love and seek the best for one another; for he who [unselfishly] loves his neighbor has fulfilled the [essence of the] law [relating to one’s fellowman]. 

The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not covet,” and any other commandment are summed up in this statement: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 

10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor [it never hurts anyone]. Therefore [unselfish] love is the fulfillment of the Law.

11 Do this, knowing that this is a critical time. It is already the hour for you to awaken from your sleep [of spiritual complacency]; for our salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed [in Christ]. 

12 The night [this present evil age] is almost gone and the day [of Christ’s return] is almost here. So let us fling away the works of darkness and put on the [full] armor of light. 

13 Let us conduct ourselves properly and honorably as in the [light of] day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and irresponsibility, not in quarreling and jealousy. 

14 But clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for [nor even think about gratifying] the flesh in regard to its improper desires."

  1. Romans 13:2 An exception to this is recorded in Acts 5:27-29. See especially v 29.
  2. Romans 13:8 Debt is generally to be avoided, but Paul probably is addressing debt to individuals with whom one has a personal relationship.
  3. Romans 13:8 The key to understanding this and other statements about love is to know that this love (the Greek word agape) is not so much a matter of emotion as it is of doing things for the benefit of another person, that is, having an unselfish concern for another and a willingness to seek the best for other believers.

'Now these things happened to them as an example and warning [to us]; they were written for our instruction [to admonish and equip us], upon whom the ends of the ages have come.' v. 11 below:

1 Corinthians 10

"For I do not want you to be unaware, believers, that our fathers were all under the cloud [in which God’s presence went before them] and they all passed [miraculously and safely] through the [Red] Sea; 

And all [of them] were baptized into Moses [into his safekeeping as their leader] in the cloud and in the sea; 

and all [of them] ate the same [1]spiritual food; 

and all [of them] drank the same [2]spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ. 

Nevertheless, God was not well-pleased with [3]most of them, for they were scattered along the ground in the wilderness [because their lack of self-control led to disobedience which led to death].

Now these things [the warnings and admonitions] took place as examples for us, so that we would not crave evil things as they did. 

Do not be worshipers of handmade gods, as some of them were; just as it is written [in Scripture], 'The people sat down to eat and drink [after sacrificing to the [4]golden calf at Horeb], and stood up to play [indulging in immoral activities].'

We must not indulge in [nor tolerate] sexual immorality, as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand [suddenly] fell [dead] in a single day! 

We must not tempt the Lord [that is, test His patience, question His purpose or exploit His goodness], as some of them did—and they were killed by serpents. 

10 And do not murmur [in unwarranted discontent], as some of them did—and were destroyed by the [5]destroyer. 

11 Now these things happened to them as an example and warning [to us]; they were written for our instruction [to admonish and equip us], upon whom the ends of the ages have come."

  1. 1 Corinthians 10:3 I.e. divinely provided manna.
  2. 1 Corinthians 10:4 I.e. divinely provided water from a rock.
  3. 1 Corinthians 10:5 Of all those adult Israelites who had been in bondage in Egypt, only Joshua and Caleb (along with those born in the wilderness) were allowed to enter the promised land.
  4. 1 Corinthians 10:7 The selection of a calf-god was probably inspired by the Egyptian bull-god Apis (Hapis), believed to be a living manifestation of the Egyptian god Ptah.
  5. 1 Corinthians 10:10 Perhaps a reference to the angel of destruction whom the rabbis called Mashhith.


I had read  somewhere before that not everyone who left Egypt with Moses and the Israelites were allowed to enter the promised land, which was one of the reasons God took so long getting them there. All of the original warriors from Egypt had to die before the Israelites could enter. The warriors were too hardened and would not obey God. I had no idea, however, that it was only two people, Joshua and Caleb, from the original group that left Egypt, including Israelites, who were allowed to enter the promised land (along with others who were born during the 40-year trip). See v. 5 above, and footnote 3.

The road to hell is wide and easy to find, but the road that leads to eternal salvation is narrow and difficult to follow, and few will find it. Matthew 7:13-14 These are not just words. Think about it. How could it be narrow and difficult to follow if all you have to do is say, I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior? That is easy, but it is just the first step. Anyone can speak words. But, can we obey God? That is what the Scripture repeatedly tells us to do, the apostles and God's prophets in the Bible tell us to do, Jesus Christ himself tells us to do, obey God:

​"
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man." Ecclesiastes 12:13.

Do we think that God is not talking to us, that He is talking to someone else? 
Awaken from your sleep [of spiritual complacency]' before it is too late. Also see my blog titled, 'Are You a Lukewarm Christian?'

The world is broken, but YOU are not. God is moulding us. Let the pieces that no longer serve God fall off. Let God mould you into His Will, and 
'Become, Become, Become.' (See "Become" poem by clicking here.)

Let us all pray that God's children, His chosen, every one, awaken from their sleep of spiritual complacency, are not too hardened to obey Him, and will all be allowed to enter into the promised land. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and obey God's precepts and commands. All glory and honor and praise and thanksgiving to the living God, the great I Am. In Jesus' name. Amen.

<![CDATA[HUMBLE YOURSELVES]]>Wed, 26 Jan 2022 15:55:36 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/humble-yourselves
" Humble yourselves [with an attitude of repentance and insignificance] in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you [He will lift you up, He will give you purpose]." James 4:10

Heavenly Father, thank you for hearing our prayers, and promising healing, restoration, and the peace that passes all understanding, if we pray. Let Your words flow through me and not my own. Let those with ears to hear, hear. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Praying is new for me. I think that is another part of the reason why I started attending Saturday Night Prayer Meeting at church. I was hoping to hear people pray, so I could get a clue, and also, hopefully, the courage to pray out loud with other people. Of course, I now realize that it was not courage that I needed, but the Holy Spirit, because if you have the Holy Spirit, then God will give you the words to say at the right time:

"For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict." Luke 21:15

Knowing that still does not break down 'the Wall' we have put up around ourselves, which comes from a  lifetime of self-conditioning to keep people away. I say, "we," because I know I am not the only one. I have heard too many people say, even recently, that they like animals more than they like people, or even, God forbid, 'I hate people,' which a family member told me very recently.

Since some coincidences, however, are God-scheduled opportunities, I took that opportunity with my family member to tell her what I had learned about hating recently. I said something like, I was there (hating people) not long ago, but I love them now. It is hard, but you have to look at everyone as if they are you.

Thank God, she is on her own path with God, and she replied, 'You know what is so weird? I had that exact same thought yesterday. I was judging someone. I literally thought to myself, what I would have said in her position.' 

Praise God. God is Great - All the Time!

​LOVE EVERYONE

Hate Evil:  Proverbs 8:13

Love Your Enemies:  Matthew 5:46

Bless those who curse you Matthew 5:44


Now, God's Word literally tells us everything we need to know to have productive, happy, fulfilling, and abundant lives, now and in life everlasting. Jesus boiled down all of the Law and the prophets that were prior to Him into two things, two things that could change the world: Love God with all of your heart, mind and soul, and love your neighbor as if it were yourself.

That is it! Most, if not all, of God's blessings are unlocked by loving Him and others: tithing, offerings, meditation, healing, prayer, which brings me back to the topic of this blog: Prayer.

We only began attending church at the end of 2021. I had been watching some Pentecostal sermons online during the lockdowns, and was hoping to find a Pentecostal church. However, when there is a church a half a mile from your house, you have to give it a shot, so we did.

Lovely church, lovely people. It could have been home, except it was missing one very important element to me: The Holy Spirit. Not only could you not feel the presence of God in the church, it felt almost stifled. We attended only twice, and then started looking again. 

Thank God, we found our current church. I really believe the presence of God is in the entire church building all of the time.

Prayer is a big part of the church. After each worship service, we have a prayer time. Our pastor has always encouraged people to come up to the altar and pray. Again, I am new to prayer, and to God for that matter, but what I know is that God has been talking to me for three or four years now, and almost all of that time I was not even attending church.

Really, I just started praying more regularly, other than at meals, in the last couple of years, in my home, in the shower, in the bed half asleep in the middle of the night, occasionally getting up and praying, but never on my knees. I mean, it hurts.

So, recently, the last couple of services, Pastor has been encouraging us to kneel to pray (at the altar, in the pew, wherever). Again, I was like ugh. There is a little bit of guilt then, for not kneeling, which probably comes from the Holy Spirit, so I got up and kneeled to pray when he said it. But, again, ouch.

In the back of mind, I am thinking, God listens no matter where you pray. I know this firsthand. So why should I cause myself pain? Forgive me, Lord, and Pastor David.

Then, today, because God is Great All the Time, this showed up as the Verse of the Day on biblegateway.com:

"Humble yourselves [with an attitude of repentance and insignificance] in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you [He will lift you up, He will give you purpose]." James 4:10

Now, as I have written about many times recently, we know God's Word is alive and powerful. I also KNOW that the Holy Spirit is present in my church. Knowing those two things, and now knowing the Scripture James 4:10 above, I would be pretty dumb not to humble myself in the presence of the Lord by kneeling.

God's Word tells us to do this one thing, humble yourself in His presence, and be exalted, raised in character, elevated, raised high. 

Merriam-Webster

Definition of exalt:

1to raise in rank, power, or character
2to elevate by praise or in estimation
4to raise high

So, do you have to kneel, or even pray around the altar? No, of course not. We have something called 'free will,' and it allows us to do pretty much whatever we want, within the law, and hopefully within some moral limits.

To activate God's blessings, however, we have to obey Him. His Word is written for us, to tell us how to activate His Power on earth, and, of course, in eternal life everlasting.

Kneeling, as a sign of respect for, and surrender to, the One who created all things, may hurt for a moment, but the blessings may very well last a lifetime. 


"O come, let us worship and bow down,

Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker [in reverent praise and prayer]." Psalm 95:6

And, of course, in the end, we know that every knee will bow to Jesus, and every tongue confess to God. Romans 14:11-12

This body of flesh is temporary. This pain is temporary. 
God forbid we ever forget the pain Jesus endured for us ​(see video below)Isaiah 53:5-12

Hallelujah. Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

<![CDATA[THE DEMONS ARE OUT]]>Sun, 09 Jan 2022 05:00:00 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/the-demons-are-outGOD'S SIGNS AND WONDERS
"And I will bring about wonders in the sky above
And signs (attesting miracles) on the earth below,
Blood and fire and smoking vapor." Acts 2:19

March 19, 2021
​Icelandic volcano erupts for the first time in over
800 years, with over 50,000 earthquakes!

DRAGON RISING IN LIGHTNING STORM?

"THE DEMONS ARE OUT"

Video uploaded May 16, 2021, from mrmbb333 on youtube.

“'Simon, Simon (Peter), listen! Satan has demanded permission to sift [all of] you like grain;" ​Luke 22:31

Separating the wheat from the chaff!

Put on your seatbelts, and hold onto your hats, this is a doozy! Thank you, Father God.

First, praise God, the Most High, the Great, I Am! Heavenly Father, let Your Will be done, and not our own, and let those with minds to understand hear with their ears. In Jesus' name. Amen!

The evening of March 19, 2021 (yep, March) in my sleep, God told me, "The demons are out." I was not fearful; I really had no emotion or feelings about it, except, Oh boy, what am I going to do with that information?  So, on March 20, I opened a blog post, put only the title, The Demons Are Out, and then saved it, but did not post it, just so I could save the date and God's Word.

Now, I may have done some research at the time, and I am sure I prayed on it, but, honestly, I was not even sure I wanted to pursue it, because if I did, God would most certainly make me write about it. Forgive me, Lord, for not posting it sooner.

There have been a couple of times over the last two years, since God has been speaking to me, that I have felt like I may be losing my mind, but God always reassures me through His presence in my life, and signs and wonders around the world, that I am most definitely not crazy, and that He is using me. Hallelujah! Praise God! Thank you, Jesus!

Now, over the months since I created the saved document, The Demons Are Out, but never posted it, I have opened it occasionally, only to see a completely blank document, except for the title. Then, I would quickly close it, and move on.

On December 9, 2021, however, I opened the saved document yet again, and something [God] told me to do an internet search for "what happened on this day," March 19, 2021.

Courtesy of: www.onthisday.com

"
Icelandic volcano Fagradalsfjall erupts for the first time in 800 years and after more than 50,000 earthquakes."

Also, see videos above concerning the volcano eruption, as well as the freak storm in Southern California.


I mean, you cannot make this stuff up. If that does not sound like, The Demons Are Out, then I do not know what would. So, I wrote this blog on December 9, 2021, but still did not post it ... until today. If only I had faith the size of a mustard seed.

The skeptic in me said to myself, but that could mean anything, or nothing at all.

Then, on December 19, 2021, I was reading through some of my previous posts for some reason, and I came across these blogs from February 2021:

Breastplate of Righteousness, dated February 4, 2021, followed by, Breastplate of Judgment, dated February 6, 2021: 

In the Breastplate of Righteousness post, God also showed me a single, big, bold lightning bolt. In addition to God controlling the weather, including the lightning, as I wrote previously in Breastplate of Righteousness, Satan, the greatest demon of all, was cast out of heaven and fell like lightning! "And he [Jesus] said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven." Luke 10:17

Both of those words in February are about God's judgment, and, then, The Demons Are Out on March 19, 2021.

Now, how does God judge people in the Bible? In Exodus 12:23 "For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he sees the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you."

This is where we get the Jewish celebration of Passover, because the destroyer 'passed over' the Israelites homes. At that time, they used the blood of animals to mark the lintel of their doors, to keep the destroyer away.


Now, we have the New Covenant of the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ, once and for all. Hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus! Amen.

Who or what is the Destroyer?

THE DESTROYER

A superhuman being, used as an instrument of God’s wrath in the execution of His judgment. It is difficult to say whether this is a good angel used by God as an agent of destruction, or Satan or one of his minions. If a good angel, God could use it to bring both blessing and destruction.


The term is used only twice (Exod 12:23 [cf. Heb 11:28]; 1 Cor 10:10). In the Exodus passage, it is used in connection with the tenth plague of Egypt, the destruction of the Egyptian first-born. In the 1 Corinthians passage Paul warned against grumbling, as some Israelites did in the wilderness and were destroyed by the Destroyer. It is thought by some that the Destroyer referred to by Paul was the fiery serpents God sent to bring death to the complaining Israelites.

In the time of David the Lord sent an angel to smite the people by means of a plague because David had made a census of the people (2 Sam 24:16). In Hezekiah’s time in a single night an angel destroyed 185,000 men in the Assyrian camp (2 Kings 19:35). The prophet Ezekiel saw in a vision a number of angels executing judgment upon Jerusalem and Judah (Ezek 9:5-7). The psalmist petitioned that the angel of the Lord would drive his enemies like dust before the wind (Ps 35:5, 6). The composer of Psalm 78:49 believed that angels could smite one’s enemies upon God’s command. In the OT Apoc., Jeremiah warned that the angel of God who was with the Israelites would punish them if they apostatized (Ep Jer 6:5-7), and in 2 Maccabees 3:24-26, Heliodorus was whipped by angels when he attempted to plunder the Temple at Jerusalem.

END QUOTE


This is not a surprise to me. God's Word to me has followed a pattern: Repent, turn away from sin, judgment, and the harvest. 


One of the first things God put on my heart back in 2020 is that this is a Spiritual War. A Spiritual War is not in the physical realm, but in the Spiritual realm. "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." Ephesians 6:12

He put on my heart that He is drawing a line with his finger in stone, a line between good and evil, God and Satan, so that EVERYONE should be able to see on which side they are.

And, because He is gracious and forgiving, and never allows us to be tempted more than we can withstand, and because He wants us ALL to return to Him, He is simultaneously pouring out His Spirit on the World. 


“For to everyone who has [and values his blessings and gifts from God, and has used them wisely], more will be given, and [he will be richly supplied so that] he will have an abundance; but from the one who does not have [because he has ignored or disregarded his blessings and gifts from God], even what he does have will be taken away." Matthew 25:29

He put on my heart that He is separating the wheat (the good) from the chaff (the evil).

Luke 22:31 “'Simon, Simon (Peter), listen! Satan has demanded permission to sift [all of] you like grain;'"

'Sift all of you like grain': Separating the wheat from the chaff.


The time is at hand for burning up the chaff. The Demons Are Out!

"Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire." Matthew 3:12

Do you have the blood of Jesus Christ protecting your home? protecting the lintel of your door? 

But the righteous shall be held blameless.

Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? If not, or if you are not sure, say 'A Prayer For Salvation' below, out loud, and ask Jesus to forgive your for your sins. Accept Him and He will accept you! Amen.

A Prayer For Salvation

Heavenly Father, the living God, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ, Yeshua, Marvelous, Counsellor, Prince of Princes, King of Kings. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived. I ask for your forgiveness.


I believe with all my heart and soul that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died for my sins, and rose again.

I am now willing to turn from my sin, to repent.

You said in the Bible, Your Holy Word, that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.

Right now, I confess Jesus is my Lord and Savior, without which I am but sinful flesh. With all of my heart, I believe that our Heavenly Father, the living God, raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved. 

​Hallelujah! Praise God! Amen!

<![CDATA[JESUS IS SAD AND GRIEVED]]>Thu, 06 Jan 2022 11:49:53 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/jesus-is-sad-and-grieved
Revelation 19

11 "
Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. 

12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. 

13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 

14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. 

15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 

16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:

KING OF KINGS AND
LORD OF LORDS."


Heavenly Father, thank you thank you thank you, for so many blessings you bestow upon us. Let your words flow through me, and not my own, and let Your children with ears to hear, hear. In Jesus' name. Amen.

I dreamed about Jesus last night. He was on a white horse, and had a sword in his hand. He was deeply saddened and grieved, because many people, too many, still have not remembered who they are in Him, and they do not understand that He is not coming to bring peace. He is coming to punish the sinners. 

"And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal." Matthew 25:46 

Unfortunately, now more than ever, there is a lot of false "Christian" preaching and teaching, basically outright lying to people, so they continue to attend a church. It will be worse for the people who cause God's little ones to stumble. 

"It would be better for him if a millstone [as large as one turned by a donkey] were hung around his neck and he were hurled into the sea, than for him to cause one of these little ones [believers] to stumble [in sin and lose faith]." Luke 17:2


PRAY for false church leaders, and their flocks. 


SEPARATING THE WHEAT FROM THE CHAFF

JESUS IS NOT COMING TO BRING PEACE


Matthew 10

34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace on the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword [of division between belief and unbelief]. 

35 For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;

36 and a man’s enemies will be the members of his [own] household [when one believes and another does not]."

We can see from this scripture that Jesus warned of these times. Families are more divided now than ever before, quite literally divided between good and evil, God and Satan. God has truly separated the wheat from the chaff. See my blog from December 2020 titled, "The Narrow Gate" here.

PRAY for friends, families, false prophets, lost church leaders, federal, state, local and world leaders to wake up and remember who they are in Jesus Christ.

So, in my dream last night, Jesus was sad and grieved, because He wants all men to come to repentance, return to Him and escape death. "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9

Indeed, "The Harvest Has Begun" (see my blog about here), as God put on my heart in February 2021. God's children, believers, who have turned their lives over to Jesus Christ, in full obedience, are reaping bountiful harvests, some an hundredfold, some sixty and some thirty, in terms of abundance, prosperity, gifts, talents, miracles, signs and wonders. Hallelujah! Amen.

I heard a prophet say the other day that God said that 2022 will be a 'year of reckoning.' In other words, God has judged this generation, and is now repaying each individual according to his/her fruit, which are our thoughts, words, deeds and actions. He who sows iniquity or trouble will reap a harvest of woe or trouble. In other words, The Harvest Has Begun, and we will reap what we have sown. Galatians 6:7 "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap."

Do you feel God's love and presence? If not, start habits in your life that sow seeds of righteousness, and bring even your very thoughts into captivity unto the obedience of Christ.

"Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;" 2 Corinthians 10:5

​God Bless You All! God Bless America!

<![CDATA[WHERE IS GOD?]]>Tue, 04 Jan 2022 12:21:11 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/where-is-godI heard evangelist, Mario Murillo, say recently,
"I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,
​for it is the Power of God!"


​19 "
Do not get upset because of evildoers, Or be envious of the wicked, 

20 For there will be no future for the evil man; the lamp of the wicked will be put out." Proverbs 24


First, all glory, honor, praise and thanksgiving to the living God, the great I AM. Father, let Your words flow through me and not my own, and let those with ears to hear, hear. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Where is God?

​God says, You're looking over there, but I'm over here!


Last night, I prayed for God to give me insight and guidance into what is going on with Fake 46, the Jackal in the White House (God's Words through His prophets, not my own words, but they seem suited to this blog). Yes, I know. That seems like an odd thing to pray for, but is it really? God said, Ask and you shall receive, and, as usual, He did not disappoint me.

Again, in my half-sleep this morning, 3:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m.-ish, I heard the words, clear as day, You're looking over there, but I'm over here.

When God talks to us, sometimes it can seem​ cryptic. We may not even realize it was a message from Him. Sometimes, it may even make us feel like we are losing it, but we should know that if we asked for a Word from Him, then more than likely, the message is from Him. We really have to stop and think, What is He saying? What has He told, or shown, me this week, or in the past, that relates to that which I prayed for? In which direction is He pointing me? We have to step outside of our feelings and our egos, and what we wish He was saying or doing, and look at what He is actually telling us.

So, what was He telling me about the Jackal in the White House? Well, absolutely nothing! His prophets have already spoken at great length about what is going on, and what will happen, in Washington, DC. God has already declared through His prophets that the Jackal will go down, along with most of Congress and the Senate, and most of the corrupt politicians around the world. Let Your Will be done, and not our own! Amen.

Proverbs 24

17 "Do not rejoice and gloat when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad [in self-righteousness] when he stumbles,

18 Or the Lord will see your gloating and be displeased, And turn His anger away from your enemy.” 

But, what about His Word to me this morning: You're looking over there, but I'm over here? What was He telling me? Well, first, to stop thinking about that situation, the Jackal, and start focusing ... on God, on His power and love and Spirit, which He has been pouring out over the United States and across the world for at least the last year. See my blog titled, "2021 - Not Just Another Year," about God's Spiritual War and Spiritual Revival.

In other words, if we have eyes to see and ears to hear, we will stop focusing on the bad over there, and start focusing on the miracles over here, happening right in front of us.

Of course, as usual, God is right! Even though I do not watch the fake news, and I have not been on social media for the last many months, I notice I sometimes become distracted in my thoughts, almost as if I put life (God) on hold because I am waiting for something to happen. So, when I prayed last night to know what was happening regarding the matter that was clearly causing my distracted thoughts (the Jackal), God pretty much told me, Stop having distracted thoughts. You're looking over there, but I'm over here. That issue over there is already being dealt with, but, Look! Look over here at the miracles and wonders happening around you! Praise God!

Mario Murillo's Testimony to God's Power is just one of the miracles happening around the world. Mario's tent revivals in some of Southern California's most dangerous neighborhoods are saving thousands of lost souls. Hardened criminal drug dealers bringing their drugs into Mario's tents, setting them on the altar, and saying, Here, I can't do this anymore, and turning their lives over to Jesus Christ! Miraculous healings taking place, proven by medical records! Hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus! Amen.

THIS is what is over here, the presence and hand of God! Are you looking over there, when God is over here?

Choose God, and accept His Son, Jesus Christ, and keep an eye out for the miracles over here, and not the distractions over there.

All praise, honor, glory and thanksgiving to God, Most High.

Amen.

<![CDATA[CAIN AND ABEL]]>Wed, 29 Dec 2021 12:49:47 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/cain-and-abel
"The [intrinsically] good man produces what is good and honorable and moral out of the good treasure [stored] in his heart; and the [intrinsically] evil man produces what is wicked and depraved out of the evil [in his heart]; for his mouth speaks from the overflow of his heart." Luke 6:45


All glory and honor and praise and thanksgiving to God, Most High, the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.

Heavenly Father, let your words continue to flow through me, and not my own. In Jesus' sweet name. Amen!

This is something God has been putting on my heart since at least the beginning of December, but just this morning, lying in bed, half asleep, He pulled it together for me.

God is Great - All The Time!

CAIN AND ABEL

We can see God's system of obedience at work in the story of Cain and Abel. 

"Woe to them! For they have gone the [defiant] way of Cain. . ." Jude 1:11

What was the "[defiant] way of Cain"? Throughout scripture, both the Old and the New Testament, we are told repeatedly that we should love our neighbor.​ Jesus specifically tells us to love God and love our neighbor, above all else:

Matthew 22

37 "Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."

We are also told to "Honor the Lord with your substance, and with the firstfruits of all your increase:" Proverbs 3:9

Having read the book of Genesis at least a few times in the last few years, I still never understood why God did not respect Cain's offering, even though the words were right there the whole time.

Genesis 4

2 ". . . And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord.

And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering:

But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?

If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lies at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him."

​Let's look at Genesis 4:3, "And in the course of time Cain brought to the Lord an offering of the fruit of the ground."

Cain offered the fruit of the ground. We can see Cain was not honoring God with the "firstfruits" of his increase, but he offered only the fruit of the ground, which could have been anything, most certainly not his firstfruits, or it would have been so written.

The firstfruits are to be from excess, surplus, not from the leftovers. Cain was honoring God only for what he thought he could get from it, not from his heart, in full obedience to God, loving Him with his heart, mind and soul. God knows our hearts. 

On the other hand, we see that Abel offered his firstborn (firstfruits), his excess, not his leftovers, AND He gave an offering of fat, which would later, in Leviticus, be reserved as an "offering to God, especially for sin": 

"But Abel brought [an offering of] the [finest] firstborn of his flock and the [b]fat portions. And the Lord had respect (regard) for Abel and for his offering;" Genesis 4:4

Footnotes: biblegateway:com
[b] ​Genesis 4:4 That is, the fat that covered the entrails of the animals. Later, in the Mosaic Law, the Israelites were forbidden to eat this fat (Lev 7:23), which was reserved as an offering to God, especially for sin (Lev 4:8, 26, 35; 9:10; 16:25).

Let's look further at the transgressions of Cain: Cain was the tiller of the ground. Abel was a shepherd, a keeper of the animals. When it came time for them to make offerings to God, Cain gave of his crops, and Abel gave of the firstfruits of his flock. God respected Abel's offering. He did not respect Cain's offering. Why?

God wants us to understand that Cain's heart was not right with God. Cain tried to convince Abel to give him an animal, or trade or barter crops for an animal, and Abel would not agree. Why would Abel not make the trade with Cain? Because Abel knew that Cain's heart was not right with God. He knew that Cain was just going through the motions, so to speak, in order to receive God's grace or favor. Abel knew that Cain did not want the animal to sacrifice for forgiveness of his sins, but only for what rewards he thought he may receive from God for the sacrifice.

Abel was righteous. He had God's Word stored in his heart, and followed His Word, so that he would not sin against God. Psalm 119:11 above.

Cain was not righteous, although he too had God's Word stored in his heart, or at least knew right from wrong, as shown in Genesis 4:7, when God says, "If you do well, shall you not be accepted? and if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. . ." So, he knew to do well, and what the consequences were. He was, however, of that "wicked one": "Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous." 1 John 3:12 

Adam and Eve chose sin over the light and love God offered, the [intrinsically evil man over the intrinsically good man]. They chose our path for us initially, but we are suppose to be the Light of the World, to rise above the lusts of the flesh, and the evil of this world. God is good, and everything He created is perfect, and designed to move man toward Him, back to His glory. 

​So, Cain was of that 'wicked one,'​ and was trying to deceive God, and climb into heaven some other way than through the door: “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the sheepfold, but climbs up from some other place [on the stone wall], that one is a thief and a robber." John 10:1

Basically, Cain was trying to reap the benefits of righteousness without actually sowing the proper seeds: walking with, knowing, following and being obedient to God.

We know that Cain knew the right thing to do, and chose not to do it: "If you do well, will you not be accepted? and if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. . ."

God was reminding Cain that he knew right from wrong, that he should do what he knew to be right, and thereby overcome man's tendencies towards stubbornness and evil thoughts, and, rather, be obedient to God, to accomplish God's Will, like Abel. Otherwise, sin was at the door, and he would rule over it. ". . . And unto you shall be his [sin's] desire, and you shall rule over him [sin]." Genesis 4:7

Now, in Genesis 4:8, we see that Cain talked with Abel and then slew him. "And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him."

Clearly, it seems as if that sentence is missing the crux. What prompted Cain to kill Abel? The scripture says, Cain talked with Abel his brother, and, later in the field, Cain slew him. What was their conversation? Well, Abel knew that Cain's heart was not right with God, so the "talk" they had went something like this:

Cain said, Hey, Abel, I need a flawless, unblemished, sheep for a sacrifice to the Father.

Abel (Knowing Cain's heart) replied, Okay, sure, brother. Let us go to the field and pick a sheep.

(Later in the field)

Abel (Knowing Cain's heart), Picked out the worst possible sheep he could find, and gave it to Cain, saying, Here is the perfect sheep for you!

Cain cried out, This sheep is sick and weak and blemished!

Abel (Knowing Cain's heart) replied, Yes! That is the perfect sheep for you!

Cain became enraged and killed Abel, and became the first man to shed innocent human blood.
 
Now, we know from scripture that Abel was "righteous," but was he completely innocent? The bible also says that King David was righteous, but he murdered Uriah so he could have his wife.

Why did King David murder Uriah? We can see in 2 Samuel 11:4-9 here that after Bathsheba told King David that she was pregnant, King David tried to get Uriah to go home, presumably so he would be with his wife, and then would believe that the child was his own. Uriah had been away from home, at war for King David, for some time, so the child his wife was carrying could not have been his own. This is a great example of how sin leads to other sin. Perhaps, King David did not want his child to be a known bastard. Clearly, what he did, he did for the child.

This shows us that God is a very forgiving God, that He knows our hearts, and He will have compassion and mercy on whom He chooses.

“I, the Lord, search and examine the mind, I test the heart . . . " Jeremiah 17:10

Back to Cain and Abel: Had Abel followed God's Word in his heart fully, he would have trusted God, and given Cain 100 flawless, unblemished, sheep when he asked for 1, and he would have still been alive to tell the story to his grandchildren. God judges on the heart. If the person receiving our gift is unworthy, God will repay each person accordingly. Luke 6:38  
 
He knows our hearts, and he knew that Abel had honorable motives, when he denied Cain the flawless, unblemished, animal. He was doing it to prevent Cain from deceiving God. Abel failed to realize, however, that God already knew this. God knows our hearts. He judges. He repays. Vengeance is mine says the Lord. Romans 12:19

​THE BLOOD SACRIFICE

If God were not so forgiving of our sins, none of us would have salvation, because we are all born flesh and blood sinners, and must be ‘born again’ in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus.

Hebrews 12:24 below tells us that the blood sacrifice of Jesus was merciful, better and nobler, a more gracious message, which cried out for God to forgive men because "they know not what they do," Luke 23:34, as opposed to Abel, whose blood [sacrifice] cried out to God for vengeance.

"and to Jesus, the Mediator of a new covenant [uniting God and man], and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks [of mercy], a better and nobler and more gracious message than the blood of Abel [which cried out for vengeance]." Hebrews 12:24

Cain killed Abel, because God required a blood sacrifice. Cain's heart was not right with God, so Abel would not give him a 'flawless, unblemished' animal to sacrifice. Cain, in a fit of rage, killed him as THE blood sacrifice to God. This is why God says, ". . . What have you done? The voice of your brother’s [innocent] blood is crying out to Me from the ground [for justice]." Genesis 4:10

And, also, why Jesus’ ultimate blood sacrifice is compared to Cain’s sacrifice of Abel’s blood in Hebrews 12:24 above.
 
God is Great - All the Time!
 
I pray that we all turn back to God, in full surrender, so that our hearts are right with Him. "Change your hearts, and show by the way you live that you have changed." Matthew 3:8

All glory and honor and praise and thanksgiving to our Heavenly Father, the source of all things, and the cohesive force holding all things together, and to whom we return, in Jesus Christ!
 
Hallelujah! Praise God! Thank you, Jesus!
 
Amen.

<![CDATA[THE SOURCE]]>Thu, 23 Dec 2021 05:00:00 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/the-source


Mary, did you know that when you kissed your baby boy you kissed the face of God? Hallelujah! 

At the end of 2020, God put on my heart that 2021 would not be just another year, but would be the year that America and the world would begin to wake up and realize that there is only One God, who can save us, even with Eternal Life. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Now, at the end of 2021, He has put on my heart that He is the source of all things: “Yet for us there is but one God, the Father, who is the source of all things. . ." 1 Corinthians 8:6 

And, that all things, as we know them, as well as what we do not know, visible and invisible, are in existence because of Him: "For by Him all things were created in heaven and on earth, [things] visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [that is, by His activity] and for Him." Colossians 1:16

We are coming into an amazing time, where we will begin to see more of God's miracles, signs and wonders. I would not be surprised to see miraculous births, healings, possibly even resurrections. I heard a prophet say that God said He is going to put His DNA in some people! He is letting us know He is here. Right now, His Spirit is pouring out into His children all over the world, in masses, and they are receiving powerful gifts and talents from the Holy Spirit.

Keep focused on God: “The eye is the lamp of the body; so if your eye is clear [spiritually perceptive], your whole body will be full of light [benefiting from God’s precepts] (laws, commands)." Matthew 6:22 

If we are not spiritually focused on God, it may look gloomy and dark around us, or even that that is normal. This is why God tells us to wear His full armor Ephesians 6:11-24, because our adversary the devil is like a roaring lion seeking whom he can destroy. If we wear the full armor of God, then our bodies will be full of light, and we know that Satan dwells in the dark, and runs from the light: "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil." John 3:19

Jesus tells us that the two greatest commandments are to love God with all of your heart, mind and soul, and love your neighbor as yourself. Two simple things that could change the world. Remember, God's Word is alive. These are not JUST words.

Love God and others as yourself! I know it can seem easier to love a God we cannot see than to love other people, standing right next to us. Forgive us, Lord. This is the world we have created for ourselves. When we can look at the homeless person on the corner, and feel compassion for him as if it were us standing on the corner, then we will understand Jesus' commandment to love your neighbor as yourself.

The homeless person is too easy though. Most people have a tug at their heart strings when they see homeless people, especially children.

What about the grumpy pants in the convenience store you go to everyday? Or, that neighbor who has a Biden (or Trump, depending on your preference) sign in their front yard? Or, what about our family that we have not spoken to in years? Or, that car behind you riding on your bumper with his bright lights on? Can we muster some love for these people? 

When we can look past our initial 'feelings' of hate, or indifference, and make a step towards freedom, liberty, emancipation from the bondage of hate, then we will understand God's Words. "Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, true freedom]." 2 Corinthians 3:17

Hate, indifference, or feelings of superiority, keep us where Satan wants us, not where God wants us. When we realize that we are not superior, but we are actually the very person at which we are looking, that we are ONE from 'the source,' God, then we will truly understand Jesus' words, to love our neighbor as ourself, because they are US!

So, yes, when Mary kissed her baby boy, she kissed the face of God, but she also kissed her own face, and the face of her mother and father, her neighbor next door, the grumpy pants down the street.

We are all ONE, and we all return to 'the source.' "Earnestly remember your Creator before the silver cord [of life] is broken, or the golden bowl is crushed, or the pitcher at the fountain is shattered and the wheel at the cistern is crushed; then the dust [out of which God made man’s body] will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it." Ecclesiastes 12:6-7

We must 'earnestly remember our Creator' before 'the spirit returns to God who gave it," and by remembering our creator, thus remember ourselves, and who we are: ONE!

Find your connection with God, and ultimately with all of mankind, by reading the bible and praying. Read and pray, pray and read. Do random acts of kindness. Everyone knows that the things we do repeatedly become habits. Let's make our habits for the greater good. We cannot control the choices the world makes, or even our own friends and family make. We can only control the choices we make. 

I pray that we all make a choice to "Let our light so shine before men, that they may see our good works, and glorify our Father which is in heaven." Matthew 5:16

Kiss the face of God today, and, remember, you are kissing your own face!

Jesus promises us only good if we follow Him. Again, not JUST words.

Psalm 91

Security of the One Who Trusts in the Lord.

1 "He who [a]dwells in the shelter of the Most High

Will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand].

I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,

My God, in whom I trust [with great confidence, and on whom I rely]!”

For He will save you from the trap of the fowler,

And from the deadly pestilence.

4  He will cover you and completely protect you with His pinions,

And under His wings you will find refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and a wall.

You will not be afraid of the terror of night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,

Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction (sudden death) that lays waste at noon.

A thousand may fall at your side

And ten thousand at your right hand,

But danger will not come near you.

You will only [be a spectator as you] look on with your eyes

And witness the [divine] repayment of the wicked [as you watch safely from the shelter of the Most High].

Because you have made the Lord, [who is] my refuge,

Even the Most High, your dwelling place,

10 No evil will befall you,

Nor will any plague come near your tent.

11 For He will command His angels in regard to you,

To protect and defend and guard you in all your ways [of obedience and service].

12 They will lift you up in their hands,

So that you do not [even] strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread upon the lion and cobra;

The young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.

14 “Because he set his love on Me, therefore I will save him;

I will set him [securely] on high, because he knows My name [he confidently trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never abandon him, no, never].

15 “He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;

I will be with him in trouble;

I will rescue him and honor him.

16 “With a long life I will satisfy him

And I will let him see My salvation.”

<![CDATA[GOD'S PLAN FOR MAN]]>Wed, 22 Dec 2021 14:49:51 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/gods-plan-for-man

"He is not here: for he is risen. . ." Matthew 28:6



Last night 12/21/21, I dreamed all night again, this time of "The Resurrection." It was the same kind of dream as "Christmas Magic," which I wrote about a few days ago.

Update: 12/25/21: I just realized the date 12/21/21 adds up to 333, a number thought to represent Jesus Christ: 
(1+2=3, 1+2=3, 2+1=3 (333). ​You can't make this stuff up.

The dream last night about the resurrection really felt like it had something to do with the "Christmas Magic" story. Again, there were no pictures or visions that are clear to me, or that I remember, but a feeling of amazement, as if perhaps I was witnessing resurrections, and the words "The Resurrection" over and over and over again.

Heavenly Father, hear my prayers. Let Your words flow through me, and not my own, and let Your children hear them. In Jesus' name. Amen.

So, what was God’s plan for man? The book of Titus tells us that it was eternal life:
 
Titus 1:2 “In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;”
 
So, God promised [man] eternal life before the world began, and we know also that He has only thoughts of peace towards man, to give us an expected end … eternal life:
 
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Jeremiah 29:11
 
Amen.
 
Now, Colossians 1 tells us that everything was created,
 
BY HIM
 
THROUGH HIM
 
FOR HIM, and
 
IN HIM
 
Colossians 1
 
16 “For by Him all things were created in heaven and on earth, [things] visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [that is, by His activity] and for Him.
 
17 And He Himself existed and is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. [His is the controlling, cohesive force of the universe.]
 
Think of it like a movie: God is the creator/writer and director, and everyone and everything, earthly and heavenly beings, is there to perform God’s Will, like actors in His movie.
 
BY HIM
 
THROUGH HIM
 
FOR HIM, and
 
IN HIM
 
His Will, before the world began, was that man, who was created from the dust of the earth, would have access to eternal life. So, every life force in the universe is pushing man towards God’s Will, from one degree of glory to more glory, from imperfection to perfection [which is eternal life].
 
“And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:18
 
Every life force in heaven and in ​and on earth is pushing man towards God’s Will, including Satan and his minions.
 
Think of God's Plan like a movie, God's movie. At first viewing of God’s movie, Satan and his minions appear to be the antagonists in the movie, the evil villains, and by all rights and definition, they are evil. The real antagonist in the movie, however, is sin and through sin, death.
 
Now, we know from scripture that God is perfect, and everything He created is good:
 
God is perfect: "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." Matthew 5:48

And, everything He created is good: For everything God has created is good. . .” 1 Timothy 4:4
 
Therefore, we should have faith to believe that Satan was created exactly how God planned it: Perfect in all his ways until iniquity was found in him. “Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.” Ezekiel 28:15


Is this not why even the Archangel Michael dared not accuse the devil (Satan), but simply said, "The Lord rebuke you"? Jude 1:9

Jude 1

8 "Nevertheless in the same way, these dreamers [who are dreaming that God will not punish them] also defile the body, and reject [legitimate] authority, and revile and mock angelic majesties.

But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil (Satan), and arguing about the body of Moses, did not dare bring an abusive condemnation against him, but [simply] said, 'The Lord rebuke you!'

10 But these men sneer at anything which they do not understand; and whatever they do know by [mere] instinct, like unreasoning and irrational beasts—by these things they are destroyed."

But these men sneer at anything which they do not understand . . . by these things they are destroyed. Jude 1:10

In other words, we should not sneer at things we do not understand in God's Word, lest by so doing, we destroy ourselves.

How could we be 'born again,' unless we first died? 

1 Corinthians 15


35 "But someone will say, 'How are the dead raised? And with what kind of body will they come?' 

36 You fool! Every time you plant seed you sow something that does not come to life [germinating, springing up and growing] unless it first dies."

It took me a little minute to understand what he was saying, but if you think about it, when you plant a seed, the outer shell must die for the seed to break through and grow. Right now, we are still in our seed, our shell. Our outer shell must die, our flesh, so that we can come to life in Jesus Christ, the resurrection.


So, we were created perfect, like God, in light and love, planted in the dirt and raised up with God's breathe. Now, through sin and death, we die, spiritually and literally, and are 'born again' in Christ, whom is the Word made flesh.

How many people know that God never promised in His Word a good time for bad people? The way of the ungodly will perish. Psalm 1:6  -  It will not be a good time for the wicked. The Bible is clear on this fact.
 
God is good, all the time - to His chosen people - but, when He comes again, the ungodly will perish.
 
His children, however, are protected from harm in Jesus Christ: Jesus said, “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Luke 10:19

If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your personal savior, God has given you an engraved invitation, written in the blood of His only begotten son. Did you RSVP by accepting Him and believing in Him? Have you surrendered your life in full obedience to God?

God promised eternal life before the world began, but “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God . . .” 1 Corinthians 15:50
 
Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, except through eternal life, also called ‘the resurrection,’ who is Jesus Christ.
 
“Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.” John 11:25
 
JESUS CHRIST IS THE RESURRECTION!!
 
In other words, through God's brilliant plan for man, sin entered the world, which is the antagonist (the bad guy) in His movie, and through sin death entered, through death, eternal life in the resurrection, which is Jesus Christ, whom is the protagonist (the good guy) in the movie. 

“Jesus says unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life [the resurrection]: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6
 
Jesus Christ, who is the resurrection, is God’s promise of eternal life before the world began. We are ‘born again’ now through His Word, His system on earth, but later, at the end, we will be ‘born again,’ in the resurrection, who is Jesus Christ.
 
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3 now or then!


How can we be ‘born again' unless we first die, to be resurrected incorruptible and immortal, and to ascend on the clouds with Jesus? “For this corruptible [man] must put on incorruption, and this mortal [man] must put on immortality.” 1 Corinthians 15:53

God's movie is unique, in that our free will lets us write our ending: In both endings, man dies; there is no escaping that, but in one ending, death leads us through the fire, and in the other ending, death leads to eternal life, the resurrection, who is Jesus Christ.

Which ending do you choose? Bow to Jesus and confess to God now . . .

"
For it is written, As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God." Romans 14:11

GOD IS GOOD - ALL THE TIME!

All glory and honor and praise and thanksgiving to God, Most High, the creator of the heavens and the earth.

​Amen!

<![CDATA[CHRISTMAS MAGIC]]>Sun, 19 Dec 2021 22:02:25 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/christmas-magicDo You Believe?
 

All glory, honor, praise and thanksgiving to the One True God, the living God! Heavenly Father, let your words flow through me, and let Your children hear them. In Jesus' name. Amen.

A couple of days ago, I prayed for God to give me insight into the next step in His Plan, and/or when the world would see what He is doing, specifically? 

Last night, I had a dream. No pictures or visions, just words. "Christmas Magic,"  over and over and over again, all night long in my sleep. I thought that was all God gave me about it, until I started writing this blog.

I am confident that we are getting ready to see some real 'Christmas Magic,' like the supernatural kind. Perhaps, the same as the REAL, original, 'Christmas Magic,' which was the supernatural, virgin, birth of Jesus Christ. That just popped into my head as I was writing this, and, then, I remembered a prophet saying recently that God said we are getting ready to see His Power, as in the days of Zechariah and Elizabeth.

If you remember Zechariah and Elizabeth, they were both old when they were told by God's angel Gabriel that Elizabeth would have a son, and they would name him John ... John the Baptizer.

If I am being honest, this is not the kind of 'Christmas Magic' I was envisioning after I had the dream, nor all the way up to as I was writing this blog, which is probably why I did not write it yesterday, because I was not on the track on which God wanted me, so I had no words.

I was not even sure I was going to write it. Honestly, all I had were the words 'Christmas Magic.' Everything else came to me as I was writing it, but I do know I prayed for understanding, and I do know that I had the dream about the words 'Christmas Magic,' and I know how God has put things together for me over the last two years: a piece of scripture here, a dream there, a prophet's words at exactly the right time, and altogether, His Word cannot be denied. Hallelujah! Praise God!

So, a miracle birth was not what I was envisioning. I mean, it would be wonderful to see some miracles at Christmas (or anytime), don't get me wrong, Amen, but, to be honest, my earthly, fleshy, vision of 'Christmas Magic' was more regarding politics. I am sure that is what is on a lot of people's minds, but as God told me earlier in the year: A politician, a mere man, cannot save us; Jesus Christ is the only one who can save us! See my blog titled, "GOD versus THE WORLD" here.

Now, God has taken me on quite a journey over the last couple of years in writing about His Plan: First, He said this was a Spiritual War, not in the physical realm, but in the supernatural realm; then, He said that He is separating the wheat from the chaff, and drawing a line with His finger in stone between good and evil, God and Satan, so that no one can be confused (boy, He was not kidding!); then, the lukewarm Christian; reaping what we sow; seed time and harvest; repentance; judgment; now, activating His government, or system, on earth; and, finally, Him wanting ALL focus on Him and His Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

So, hold on to your hats and buckle up, get ready for some supernatural 'Christmas Magic'! Do you believe? I do! I have seen His Power too many times in my life to not believe.

Our Prayer Today:

Heavenly Father, thank you for our many blessings. Thank you for Your Word. Thank you for Your Word that tells us that if we call on you, you will show us great and mighty things, and if we ask, believing, we will receive. Hallelujah!

Father, help us to have faith in You, and to believe as little children, who have faith in a different kind of 'Christmas Magic,' for theirs is the kingdom of God. 

We know that with men, this is impossible, but with God, all things are possible. Hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus.

We pray for these things in Jesus' name. Amen.

<![CDATA[GOD'S SYSTEM OF PRAYER]]>Fri, 10 Dec 2021 17:46:51 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/god-system-of-prayer


WHEN YOU KNOW GOD, YOU KNOW YOU KNOW GOD!

Hallelujah!


Do you know Him?

Something God has shared with me recently, in the last couple of months, is that His Word, the Bible, is a system, an automated system on earth, activated by praying and reading His Word, and, also, by our own thoughts, words spoken, and our own actions or deeds.

The words in the Bible are not just words. They are active and alive. If we meditate on His word, worship Him, give all glory, praise and thanksgiving to Him, day and night, every day, it will activate enormous blessings in our lives.

Not only have I experienced His system in my life, personally, as I have written about in these blogs recently, but this is also what He tells us to do in His Word.

"So then, whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of [our great] God." 1 Corinthians 10:31

Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God!

Whatever you do :::::

Philippians 4

6 "Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God.

And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."


"In everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition"

WHATEVER YOU DO! By prayer and petition ... and receive the PEACE of God that passes ALL understanding! God's System!



James 4 goes into God's System of Prayer even further, and tells us specifically to pray before we move or change jobs.

James 4

13 "Come now [and pay attention to this], you who say, 'Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and carry on our business and make a profit.'

14 Yet you do not know [the least thing] about what may happen in your life tomorrow. [What is secure in your life?] You are merely a vapor [like a puff of smoke or a wisp of steam from a cooking pot] that is visible for a little while and then vanishes [into thin air].

15 Instead you ought to say, 'If the Lord wills, we will live and we will do this or that.'

16 But as it is, you boast [vainly] in your pretension and arrogance. All such boasting is evil."

Now, I know people will say to themselves, I have a job and a family. I don't have time for meditation, prayer and worship, day and night! And, God says to you, Yes, you do! Yes, you do have time, even with your hectic schedule and being pulled in 50 different directions, you have time!

You know why you have time? First of all, because God said you do LOL  Amen? But, also, because meditation, prayer and worship can, and should, be done all day long, every day. When you are driving down the road, just say to yourself, or out loud, Praise God! Thank you, Jesus! All Glory and Honor and Praise to God, Most High! Thank you thank you thank you. Hallelujah to the Lamb of God! Amen!  Easy peasy, right? It really just takes a conscious effort, and eventually it becomes a habit, a good habit!

Waiting in the drop-off line at school? Heavenly Father, thank you for my many blessings. Thank you for forgiving me of my sins. Watch over my children and my husband today, keep your word and your will in their hearts, and make their paths straight. Amen!

Prayer system activated!

Start talking to God, reading His Word, and listening to His answers. Watch the enormous benefits that start to roll into your life.

Now, what does God say about His system of prayer for healing?

GOD'S SYSTEM OF PRAYER
FOR HEALING OURSELVES AND OTHERS


James 5

13 "Is anyone among you suffering? He must pray.

Is anyone joyful? He is to sing praises [to God].

14 Is anyone among you sick? He must call for the elders (spiritual leaders) of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with [c]oil [the presence of God, the Holy Spirit] in the name of the Lord [Jesus Christ];

15 and the prayer of faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another [your false steps, your offenses], and pray for one another, that you may be healed and restored. The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God--it is dynamic and can have tremendous power].

17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours [with the same physical, mental, and spiritual limitations and shortcomings], and he prayed intensely for it not to rain, and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months.

18 Then he prayed again, and the sky gave rain and the land produced its crops [as usual]."

Footnotes: biblegateway.com
(c) James 5:14 The oil symbolizes the presence of God.

Definition of "dynamic": always ACTIVE or changing.

Prayer is 'dynamic,' always active (alive). Hallelujah! Amen!

So, according to James 5:13-18 above, whom is called to pray for the sick?

First, the elders, or spiritual leaders, of the church are to pray over them, and anoint them with the presence of God, which is the Holy Spirit, in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 

Second, as righteous men and women, we are called to pray for them and ourselves (that we may all be healed and restored), and we are specifically told that we can accomplish 'MUCH' through prayer!

Now, what does "righteous" mean. If anyone is like I was, I really did not understand what it meant until recently. I remember not that long ago, looking at my husband and saying, Am I righteous? Are you righteous? What does that mean?

So, I looked up the definition of "righteous": from wordnik: Morally upright; without guilt or sin.

I was like, wow, that really does not describe me, even though I was living as sin-free as humanly possible at that time (within my limited knowledge of God's Word), so the whole concept of righteousness went right over my head. Then, of course, a light bulb went off (God spoke), and I realized that 'righteous' means saved by the grace of God, and having our sins washed away by the blood sacrifice of the New Covenant, Jesus Christ.

In other words, we are saved from sin, or death (we are righteous), because God wanted to save us, and he sacrificed His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, so that our sins could be washed away, once and for all, forever. Amen! But do not abuse God's system, because with blessings come curses. Plus, we (believers) will all stand before the judgment seat of Christ and give account to God! Romans 14:11-12. Praise God! Thank you, Jesus! See more in my blog titled, 'Sin No More.'

Further, Jesus tells us in Matthew 18:19 that if just two of us agree on earth on anything, it shall be done for them! 

​"Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven." Matthew 18:19  God's System!

So, these are the reasons I started attending Saturday night prayer meeting at church, because I know firsthand that prayer works in my life. I think I was driven (by God) to come to the church physically, and pray with other people in the chapel.

"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." Matthew 18:20

It was almost like a feeling of selfishness on my part, because I knew miracles could happen, and I was not doing what God's Word instructed me to do to help effectuate those miracles in other people's lives, as well as my own.

"Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." James 5:16 - God's System!!

Remember, Satan is like a roaring lion looking for whom he can devour. The one Saturday night I did not attend the prayer meeting, I knew immediately that Satan had won that round, and I vowed to not let that happen again. Praise God!

So, maybe you will be called (by God) to attend prayer meetings at your church for healing of others, or you and/or your family and friends, or possibly a stranger!

Regardless, cover all your bases, activate ALL of God's blessings and walk with Him all day long, every day. You will activate God's system in your life, and then you will fully understand what I mean when I say, When you know God, you KNOW you know him!

I pray God gives everyone the peace that passes all understanding!

Hallelujah! Praise God! Amen!

<![CDATA[THE HOLY SPIRIT]]>Thu, 25 Nov 2021 16:54:08 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/the-holy-spirit


​"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." Matthew 18:20

Our God is a supernatural God. What does supernatural mean?

Supernatural
soo͞″pər-năch′ər-əl
adjective
  1. Of or relating to existence outside the natural world.
  2. Attributed to a power that seems to violate or go beyond natural forces.
  3. Of or relating to a deity.

Is your church a supernatural church? Is the Holy Spirit present? Can you tell when he is present? If not, find a new church. Sad but true. Sorry not sorry. You cannot be a supernatural church without the presence of the Holy Spirit. God has put on my heart many times in the last two years that we are moving into a supernatural explosion of God into the hearts of believers. We are already seeing more and more (lay) people expressing new gifts from Holy Spirit.

Of all the religious denominations, I believe Pentecostal is considered THE supernatural church. We believe in gifts from the Holy Spirit, and his presence in our worship:

1 Corinthians 12 

4 "Now there are [distinctive] varieties of spiritual gifts [special abilities given by the grace and extraordinary power of the Holy Spirit operating in believers], but it is the same Spirit [who grants them and empowers believers]. 

And there are [distinctive] varieties of ministries and service, but it is the same Lord [who is served]. 

And there are [distinctive] ways of working [to accomplish things], but it is the same God who produces all things in all believers [inspiring, energizing, and empowering them].

But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit [the spiritual illumination and the enabling of the Holy Spirit] for the common good.

To one is given through the [Holy] Spirit [the power to speak] the message of wisdom, and to another [the power to express] the word of knowledge and understanding according to the same Spirit;

to another [wonder-working] faith [is given] by the same [Holy] Spirit, and to another the [extraordinary] gifts of healings by the one Spirit;

10 and to another the working of miracles, and to another prophecy [foretelling the future, speaking a new message from God to the people], and to another discernment of spirits [the ability to distinguish sound, godly doctrine from the deceptive doctrine of man-made religions and cults], to another various kinds of [unknown] tongues, and to another interpretation of tongues.

11 All these things [the gifts, the achievements, the abilities, the empowering] are brought about by one and the same [Holy] Spirit, distributing to each one individually just as He chooses."


At our church, which we just started attending, we have a prayer meeting Saturday nights at 7:00 p.m. I attended it for the first time on November 20, 2021. Even though there were only three people present at the prayer meeting, you could feel the presence of the Holy Spirit in the room. We prayed for various things, and people who had submitted prayer requests, and others who had not.

I have personally seen amazing results from prayer, even when I pray alone, much less three righteous people, God's house, in the presence of the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah! Praise God!

Prayer is not a one-time, one-shot deal. Imagine if the whole church were praying for the same things, at the same time.

​Needless to say, I will be praying for all of our prayer warriors to show up at all prayer meetings. Amen!

Now, one of the other things I prayed for Saturday night is for every seat in our church to be filled, all sermons, meetings and classes. Thursday morning, also on Thanksgiving Day, God put on my heart that our church is getting ready to explode, not only in members, but also in the presence of the Holy Spirit! I even saw a tent, and shuttles transporting people! Hallelujah! Amen!

These are great times we are coming into. God is making it known that He is real, and He is here. There are wonders and signs and miracles happening all around us ..... open your eyes to see, your ears to hear and your heart to understand ..... but do not expect to hear or see them from the false prophets (fake news).

All honor, glory, praise and thanksgiving to God, the Most High.

​Hallelujah! Praise God! Thank you, Jesus! Amen!

<![CDATA[FEAST AND FAMINE]]>Tue, 31 Aug 2021 13:36:01 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/feast-and-famine

Choose God




You know those people who say God is a myth, a fairy tale, sky daddy? First, if you know God, you know you know God. The more God plays out in my daily life, the more I want to shout it from the housetops!!

Over the last couple of years, God has been very active in my life, to say the least. My journey has been from full-blown, active and willing sinner, to faithful servant of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and our heavenly Father.

God gave my husband and I messages last year, however, of which I did not write about, because, as I have said before, sadly, I do not have the faith of a mustard seed.

But, no matter how stiff-necked (stubborn) man is, if God has a Word to be said, He will insure it is said. Hallelujah! Praise God!

This story begins in 2020.

Last year, God gave my husband a vision of a silo, and he started talking about building a silo. We soon realized that was not feasible, primarily because we do not have room to grow enough of anything to fill a silo. But, God had planted the seed in our thoughts and hearts, and, almost simultaneously, God put a spirit of preparing (storing food and necessities) in me. I struggled with this concept at first, because Jesus said, “But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:” Matthew 6:20

Then, God gave me a vision one night: I was washing dishes, and I began washing with a large, full bottle of dish detergent, and when I was through washing, the bottle was half empty. That would be a lot of dishes. So, I then knew that God was having us store food, because a time was coming when people would need it.

All of this happened last year, and we have been prepping ever since then. I bought a dehydrator, and then two dehydrators. Recently, I bought a pressure canner. The pressure canner is great, but I love the dehydrator. Most nutrients are preserved, the food is lighter, and the jars and mylar bags can hold more. Most importantly, a bowl of rehydrated vegetable soup is absolutely delicious, no seasoning even required. Update: I now realize the soup is delicious because I cooked the dehydrated pinto beans with a lot of garlic and onion before I dehydrated them. So, the soup is a little bland without seasoning, but it is easy enough to add some.

In addition to storing food, I was drawn to learning about medicinal, delicious and nutritious weeds that grow in the backyard, and even cultivating some weeds, and collecting seeds from them for next year. And, we planted 13 fruit trees. 

Now, everyone may not have room to grow all of that outside, but you do not need to have a lot of room. We also started learning to cultivate food inside the house. We actually started hydroponics a few years ago, to see how it would go, and, surprisingly, the plants got big over the winter, but then I planted them outside in the spring. But, I now know for sure that I can grow brassica (broccoli, cabbage, etc.) greens inside the house, in water.... and also in dirt (in the house). The leaves of the broccoli plant are just as delicious and nutritious as the actual broccoli itself.

So, plant a tree . . . or, even a weed, grow something, inside or outside! 


​Now, what does the Bible say about famine in the land?

Seven Years of Feast - Seven Years of Famine

Genesis 41

29 "Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt:

30 And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land;

31 And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine following; for it shall be very grievous."

This morning, God showed me the following Scripture from Jeremiah 14, which is in line with God's Word to me at the beginning of the year regarding Jeremiah 4. You can read about it by clicking here. The entire Book of Jeremiah describes God's wrath to come, but Jeremiah 4 and Jeremiah 14, is what He has shown me.

Famine and the False Prophets

Jeremiah 14


False Prophets

13 "But I said, Alas, Lord God! Behold, the [false] prophets are telling them, ‘You will not see the sword nor will you have famine, but I [the Lord] will give you lasting peace in this place.’ 

14 Then the Lord said to me, 'The [counterfeit] prophets are prophesying lies in My Name. I have neither sent them nor authorized them nor spoken to them. They are prophesying to you made-up visions [pretending to call forth responses from handmade gods], a worthless divination and the deceit of their own mind.

15 Therefore, thus says the Lord concerning the [false] prophets who are prophesying in My Name, although I did not send them—yet they keep saying, 'Sword and famine shall not be in this land’: by sword and famine those prophets shall meet their end and be consumed.

16 And the people to whom they are prophesying will be thrown out into the streets of Jerusalem, victims of famine and sword; and they will have no one to bury them—neither them, nor their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters. For I will pour out their [own] wickedness on them [and not only on the imposters posing as prophets, for the people could not have been deceived without their own consent].'"


The Blameless Will be Satisfied

Psalm 37

16 "Better is the little of the righteous [who seek the will of God]

Than the abundance (riches) of many wicked (godless).

17 For the arms of the wicked will be broken,

But the Lord upholds and sustains the righteous [who seek Him].

18 The Lord knows the days of the blameless,

And their inheritance will continue forever.

19 They will not be ashamed in the time of evil,

And in the days of famine they will have plenty and be satisfied."


20 But the wicked (ungodly) will perish,

And the enemies of the Lord will be like the glory of the pastures and like the fat of lambs [that is consumed in smoke],

They vanish—like smoke they vanish away.

21 The wicked borrows and does not pay back,

But the righteous is gracious and kind and gives.

22 For those blessed by God will [at last] inherit the land,

But those cursed by Him will be cut off."


"The Lord knows the days of the blameless . . . And in the days of famine they will have plenty and be satisfied."


Acts 3

19 "So repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins] and return [to God—seek His purpose for your life], so that your sins may be wiped away [blotted out, completely erased], so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord [restoring you like a cool wind on a hot day];

20 and that He may send [to you] Jesus, the Christ, who has been appointed for you,

21 whom heaven must keep until the time for the [complete] restoration of all things about which God promised through the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time.

22 Moses said, ‘The Lord God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your countrymen; you shall listen to Him and obey everything He tells you.

23 And it will be that every person that does not listen to and heed that Prophet will be utterly destroyed from among the people.’

24 Indeed, all the prophets who have spoken, from Samuel and those who came after him, also announced these days.

25 You are the sons (descendants) of the prophets and [heirs] of the covenant which God made with your fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘And in your seed (descendant) all the families of the earth shall be blessed.’

26 It was for you first of all that God raised up His Servant and Son [Jesus], and sent Him to bless you by turning every one of you from your wicked ways.”


Matthew 13:15

"'For this nation’s heart has grown hard,

And with their ears they hardly hear,

And they have [tightly] closed their eyes,

Otherwise they would see with their eyes,

And hear with their ears,

And understand with their heart, and turn [to Me]


And I would heal them [spiritually].’"


Isaiah 45:17 

"Israel has been saved by the Lord

With an everlasting salvation;

You will not be put to shame or humiliated for all eternity."


Isaiah 45:22 “Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there is no other."


Choose God and His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, or Go To Hell. There is no other choice.


Today's Prayerwww.blessedbeliever.com

Oh, Heavenly Father, living God, most gracious, just and merciful, we pray that You continue to shine Your Light on the heavens and the earth, exposing all darkness, from east to west and north to south. Shine Your Light into the hearts of Your children, waking them out of their slumber in Jesus.

Father, I thank you for waking me up, and for not giving up on me. You are a patient and loving Father, and we know that you want all of your sheep to find the way back to Your Flock. We pray for Your Great Awakening of the World, and the Great Harvest promised by You through Your Word and Prophets, thirty-, sixty- or an hundredfold. Hallelujah! 

Father, we pray that Your children everywhere find you, come back to you, and are healed, before the fury of your recompense on the World.

Father, we know we have broken your laws and our sins have separated us from you. We are truly sorry, and now we want to turn away from our past sinful life toward you.

Please forgive us, and help us avoid sinning again. We believe that your son, Jesus Christ, died for our sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears our prayers. We invite Jesus to become the Lord of our lives, to rule and reign in our hearts, from this day forward.

Please send your Holy Spirit to help us obey You, and to do Your Will for the rest of our lives.

We pray for all of these things in Jesus' name.

Hallelujah! Praise God, Most High, the Great I Am, the creator of the heavens and the earth, our heavenly Father. 

Amen! Amen! Amen!

<![CDATA[WHITE AS SNOW]]>Fri, 09 Jul 2021 16:27:58 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/white-as-snow
First, it cannot be said enough that prayer is amazing. Both of the following Scriptures are just and true:

"And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive." Matthew 21:22

“And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.” 1 John 3:22

All Glory to God in the Highest. Hallelujah!

So, on to "White as Snow." Last weekend, I got out of bed to pray during the evening, as I sometimes do, although not as often as I know that I should. I prayed for God to give me insight into what was going on at that moment in the world, in His Plan. I also prayed to see His face and have His loving arms wrapped around me. I prayed for many things, but those two are related to this story. Then, I went back to bed, and to sleep.

At some point after that, God gave me a vision, where I looked out a window and saw snow. I did not even have to pull out my Bible and research Scripture to know that He had answered both of my questions or requests.

In the Bible, snow represents the cleansing of sin: "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." Isaiah 1:18


So, first, God is cleansing sin in the world and in America.

Snow also represents the image of God: "His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire." Revelation 1:14

Honestly, God could not have picked a better image with which to show me Himself. The first snows of the year always make me smile, and make me feel warm and fuzzy. Thank you, Lord. 

And, so second, we know that He answers prayers with amazing consideration and love.

He truly is great all of the time! Hallelujah! Praise God.

"ALGORITHM IS NOT MAN'S RHYTHM" AUDIO BLOG

"MASSIVE ASH AND DUST STORM
WHIPS INTO TEXAS AHEAD OF TORNADOES"
​March 17, 2021

OVER 52 VOLCANOES
​ERUPTING WORLDWIDE

MAN, THE FINAL FRONTIER?
​Click image for article from Newsweek

"SpaceX has received regulatory approval from the Federal Communications Commission to deploy up to 12,000 satellites, and is planning to launch around 30,000 more."

"For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it." Jeremiah 4:28 (See the videos above about world and USA weather.) ​

So, what's all this about algorithms? Well, algorithm is not man's rhythm, the rhythm of life, given by God when He created all things. Algorithm is artificial intelligence: Like "The Terminator," I'll Be Back, SkyNet, take over the world, artificial intelligence ... or, at least the beginning of it.

Yesterday, I read that Elon Musk's Space-X sent 180 satellites into space in the last 10 days for the company, SatLink. (See article from Newsweek above.)  Seemed odd to me, but what do I know about satellites? The first thing that came to my mind was, it was bad enough we pollute the earth, now we are polluting outer space. Still a valid point, I think.

This morning, however, I saw a prophet say that God said, The rhythm of life flows along with us, flows right along with us, but the algorithm is death. And then he referred to Ecclesiastes 10:20 ". . . and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter. . ."  "Bird of the air": Satellites?! ". . . that which hath wings shall tell the matter": cell phones, computers, artificial intelligence controlling our homes?! . . . The algorithm is death?!

Algorithm Definition: "A set of mathematical instructions or rules that, especially if given to a computer, will help to calculate an answer to a problem."

"The algorithm is death"!!

But, what exactly is God telling us? Clearly, it is a warning. "They" are listening to us! And, just like they spied on President Trump's campaign, we already know they ARE spying on us as well. It is no coincidence that it seems like you can merely think about something, and all of a sudden, the ads show up for it on your phone or computer. Now, they use these capabilities to get rich off of us with advertising, but God has shown us, through His prophet(s), that their capability and/or intent is to use this technology against us at some point in the future, to weed out dissenters, those who dare to deny them, their vaccinations, or their trampling of our Constitutional rights.

Thus, the Scripture, "and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber . . ." Because, just like China is rounding up its citizens now in 2021, and putting them in "Internment Camps," "for the common good," God is warning us to be careful of what we say, even in our own homes, lest we be "rounded up" as well. 

I know this sounds insane, but does it really? Think about it, look at the sequence of events I present herein, and God's Word to me over the last year in my blogs, most importantly do your own research, and determine for yourself.

For instance, as I was writing this, I was reminded of, and drawn back to, my blog titled, "The Angels Are Here," dated February 9, 2021, (Click here to see that blog), which is a breakdown of Jeremiah 4. I do feel God has been warning me over the last year, much the same as with Judah and Jerusalem in Jeremiah, He will not turn away His wrath, for our sins and iniquities are too great in His eyes and we have not repented, or turned away from our sin.

So, God will bring destruction to our cities, but not yet a full end; a remnant will remain to repopulate the earth. And we know from Scripture that God often uses our enemies to punish us. The algorithm is death.

Stay with me for a few minutes now, because I am going to pull together something else God gave me a few weeks ago, and which He is just now bringing together for me into a cohesive thought, story or plan.

So, yes, trouble is coming to America, and to the world, because God wants ALL of His children to return to Him, and to turn away from sin. Unfortunately, and sadly, in despair is when man turns to God the most, but this is not the end. Again, refer to Jeremiah 4. Not the end, and not at this time!?

So, in my sleep on the evening of February 21, 2021, God gave me the word "Josiah." Although I did not know specifically who Josiah was, I felt certain I would find him in the Bible, and I did, beginning at 2 Kings 22 and at 2 Chronicles 33:25, and Jeremiah also talks about Josiah at Jeremiah 3:6. I recommend everyone read these passages. Some theologians and scholars agree that Josiah, even though only eight years old when he began to rule, may have been God's second greatest king of Jerusalem, second only to King David, but even so, his greatness was not enough to quench God's anger at the evildoings of his grandfather, Manasseh.

The Scripture relevant to today's message, however, is as follows:

2 Kings 22: 16-20

16 "Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the words of the book which the king of Judah hath read:

17 Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place, and shall not be quenched.

18 But to the king of Judah which sent you to enquire of the Lord, thus shall ye say to him, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, As touching the words which thou hast heard;

19 Because thine heart was tender, and thou hast humbled thyself before the Lord, when thou heard what I spake against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation and a curse, and have rent thy clothes, and wept before me; I also have heard thee, saith the Lord.

20 Behold therefore, I will gather thee unto thy fathers, and thou shalt be gathered into thy grave in peace; and thine eyes shall not see all the evil which I will bring upon this place. And they brought the king word again."

"But to the king of Judah [a/k/a Josiah] [a/k/a Trump] which sent you to enquire of the Lord . . ." Not that Trump is actually Josiah reincarnated, but that God showed me Jeremiah and Josiah to show what is going to happen to the world, but not until after Trump finishes his second term, or, more likely, after his natural, peaceful death, as in Josiah.

So, now you know why it has taken me so long to write this blog. How do you write a blog to tell people destruction is coming? But, God kept giving me pieces over the last couple of weeks, until I had His full Word, which could no longer be denied.

Trump won. I know it. You know it. God knows it, too! (See above image of my Fakebook post above dated December 7, 2020.) "Trump won! (God Won!) Roe v. Wade will be overturned! Abortion will be abolished." This is what God told me after the fraudulent 2020 election. And, He has told MANY great prophets that Trump won two terms and that president number 46 does not exist at this time.

So, in conclusion, everything that God has shared with me, which I have written about in my blogs under "My Walk With God" above has pointed to one message: REPENT! Turn away from sin. This DOES NOT mean we have four years (until the end of Trump's second term), and/or until President Trump passes away, to "find God." No, God has made it clear to me, the time is at hand now to choose the narrow path: (see my blog here: "The Narrow Gate," and, I believe He has told me that, for those involved in this event, there will be no other opportunity in this lifetime to choose sides, good or evil.

Choose God Now! 

And, 

"Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me." Job 38:3

Our Prayer Today:

Psalm 18:1-50

1 "I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.

The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.

In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.

There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.

He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.

10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.

11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.

12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.

13 The Lord also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.

14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.

15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O Lord, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.

17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.

18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the Lord was my stay.

19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.

20 The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.

21 For I have kept the ways of the Lord, and have not wickedly departed from my God.

22 For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.

23 I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.

24 Therefore hath the Lord recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.

25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;

26 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.

27 For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.

28 For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.

29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.

30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

31 For who is God save the Lord? or who is a rock save our God?

32 It is God that girds me with strength, and makes my way perfect.

33 He makes my feet like hinds' feet, and sets me upon my high places.

34 He teaches my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.

35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.

36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.

37 I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.

38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.

39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.

40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.

41 They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the Lord, but he answered them not.

42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.

43 Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me.

44 As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.

45 The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.

46 The Lord liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.

47 It is God that avenges me, and subdues the people under me.

48 He delivers me from mine enemies: yea, thou lifts me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.

49 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.

50 Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and shews mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore."

​Hallelujah! Praise God! Amen!

<![CDATA[CHILDREN, CHILDREN, CHILDREN]]>Wed, 10 Mar 2021 21:10:30 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/children-children-children
The night of the March 8, I had a night of fitful and restless sleep. I had a dream, or vision, or out-of-body experience, not sure what to call it. I kept hearing or seeing the word, "children" over and over again, continuously. I didn't see any children, so it was not like a dream. It was just the word, "children, children children" over and over again, all night long. I wasn't scared or fearful in any way, so it was not like a nightmare.  I may have felt concern, relief, joy, but not fear.

​I say, I had a fitful and restless sleep, because it was: I did not sleep well; I had dark circles under my eyes in the morning; and, I was tired, exhausted really, like I had run a marathon, and sore from my hips to my shoulders, as if I had used muscles I had never used before. 

I cannot explain the experience beyond describing it, and God has not given me any further indication of what it was about. But, one thing I know for sure: 

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." Revelation 3:20

Hallelujah! Praise God! Thank you, Jesus! Amen! Amen! Amen!
