"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?
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].
5 And there are [distinctive] varieties of ministries and service, but it is the same Lord [who is served].
6 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].
7 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.
8 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;
9 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.
One specific thing we prayed for was the Los Angeles Port cargo ship situation, for God to send laborers to unload the ships, for the evil plans to be thwarted, and for God to turn what men meant for evil into good.
Now, I no longer watch the news, for probably the last two years. Of course, I hear things here and there, and sometimes I will research specific issues. Thanksgiving day, I felt drawn to check on the Los Angeles Port situation. To my surprise, a couple of articles came up first, at the top of the list, that said a new system has been put in place that will help alleviate some of the traffic jam at the port. The first article was dated November 22, just two days after our prayer meeting.
Do I think that our measly little three people praying Saturday night had this effect? Yes, I do believe it definitely did. I have personally seen amazing results from prayer, even when I pray alone, much less three righteous people, in the temple of Christ, with the Holy Spirit present. Hallelujah! Praise God!
While this new system at the Los Angeles Port does not solve the problem, it was some good news.
Prayer is not a one-time, one-shot deal. Imagine if the whole church were praying for the same thing, at the same time, in the presence of the Holy Spirit. I am sure we could effectuate a permanent solution instead of a tiny little effort at a solution, with just three people praying.
So, needless to say, I will be praying this Saturday night for all of our prayer warriors to show up at the Saturday night 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!
Sometime in my sleep, in the middle of the night, God put Isaiah 5:10 on my heart.
“For ten [d] acres of vineyard will yield [only] [e] one bath of wine,
And a homer ([f] six bushels) of seed will produce [only] one ephah of grain.”
What does this mean to us? Over the last year, God has taken me on a journey, which I have shared in these blogs, from the lukewarm CHRISTian, to planting, sowing and harvesting, right up to recently, with judgment.
If you had a garden this year, or know someone who did, you know that 2021 is not a "normal" gardening year for most people. Personally, among other things, I planted some hot pepper plants in the ground around April, which I had started indoors during the winter. Those plants, about five or six of them, stayed two to three inches tall in the ground, for months. Around September, they started to grow a little, maybe an inch or two. Then, in October, when we often start seeing snow in New England, those tiny little pepper plants started getting peppers on them!! Tomatoes grew also, but never ripened on the vine. New pepper and tomato flowers popped out in the middle of October. Cucumber vines withered before the cucumbers were fully grown, and then the cucumbers withered and rotted.
"In that day man will have regard for his Maker,
And his eyes will regard the Holy One of Israel [with awe-inspired reverence]." Isaiah 17:7
Give all thanks, praise and Glory to God, the Most High, the living God, the Great, I AM, because only He can save us. There is no other God.
Hallelujah! Praise God! Thank you, Jesus. Amen.
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!!
"For the word of God is living and active and full of power. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit, and of both joints and marrow, exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart." Hebrews 4:12
Over the last couple of years, God has been very active in my life, to say the least. See God's Words to me here faithfullamb.com/index.html. 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.
"He [Jesus] answered, “Because of your little faith [your lack of trust and confidence in the power of God]; for I assure you and most solemnly say to you, if you have [living] faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and [if it is God’s will] it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20
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, my husband said that God showed him 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, because all of the natural flavors are accentuated when the vegetables are dehydrated.
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
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 here: faithfullamb.com/walk-with-god/the-angels-are-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
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
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."
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.”
"'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].’"
"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 Prayer: courtesty of: https://blessedbeliever.com/prayer-points/
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!
Recently, I heard that if you read the Bible from start to finish, God will give you revelations about His Word.
1 "Blessed is the man . . . 2 . . . (whose) delight is in the law of the Lord, And on His law [His precepts and teachings (commandments)] he meditates day and night."
So, I started reading Genesis about 10 days ago. Somewhere around Deuteronomy is when things got supernaturally weird.
Now, before this incident, the only Biblical veil I was aware of was the veil Moses used to cover God's glory (Shekinah) that radiated from his (Moses') face after leaving God's presence. 34 . . . "When he came out and he told the Israelites what he had been commanded [by God], 35 the Israelites would see the face of Moses, how his skin shone [with a unique radiance]. So Moses put the veil on his face again until he went in to speak with God." Exodus 34
Around the weekend of August 21, during Hurricane Henri, which hit areas of the northeast hard, but pretty much missed us, I felt very oppressed, depressed, suppressed and repressed, and my husband felt it as well, even to a greater degree. I am a firm believer that people turn to God the most in despair, so sitting next to my husband at the computer desk, I grabbed his hand and began praying out loud. It was not long before we were both sobbing, as I was trying to get the words out. Repenting, begging for forgiveness, crying out for His Glory. Of course, I had no specific idea of why I was doing that, at that moment. I now believe God (God's Spirit) willed it.
Later that night, when we talked about it again, I said it felt like a veil over me, and my husband agreed, it felt like a veil. We went to bed, and had an uneventful sleep.
I believe it was a couple of days later, around August 23, my husband said, the veil is gone, and I agreed.
"but whenever a person turns [in repentance and faith] to the Lord, the veil is taken away." 1 Corinthians 3:16
God is Great All The Time, and He is Truly Amazing! Hallelujah! Praise God!
Fast forward about five days. I am still reading the Bible start to finish, and I am up to Joshua now. I got off on a little tangent, as I sometimes do, and did a search on "kjv to this day," which will be the subject of another blog, but I found the following Scripture:
2 Corinthians 3
14 "But [in fact] their minds were hardened [for they had lost the ability to understand]; for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remains unlifted, because it is removed [only] in Christ.
15 But to this day whenever Moses is read, a veil [of blindness] lies over their heart;
16 but whenever a person turns [in repentance and faith] to the Lord, the veil is taken away.
17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, true freedom].
18 And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror (reflection) 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."
"We . . . reflect the Lord's Glory." 2 Corinthians 3:18
All Glory and Praise to God in the Highest. Hallelujah! Thank you, heavenly Father, for all of our blessings, of which we are unworthy sinners.
Thank you, Jesus, my Savior!
Amen! Amen! Amen!
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.
