6 Steps to Maintaining a Healthy Thought Life – 07-30-15

6 Steps to Maintaining a Healthy Thought Life – 07-30-15

The Message Outline:

As God deals with the root systems within us- the spiritual battle is intensified by the enemy within the soul. The more negative roots that are exposed and dealt with by God, the thought life that was formerly bound in negative structures needs to be re-established on the truth, and re-grounded in Christ, who is their stability.

Hebrews 4:12 For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.

We are triune beings; we are a spirit, which has a soul, and lives in a body:

The spirit man.                                                
The soul of the man.                                                Each three have unique memory banks.
The body of the man.

1 Thessalonians 5:23 And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God]; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah).

Negative emotions and memories that come to the surface after periods of time, are a sign of spiritual structures and root systems that the Lord wants dealt with, and it’s corresponding thoughts also needing to be cleansed.

Your thought life affects all 3 parts of your being:

Your spirit man is attached to the eternal heavenly realm (when you are born again through Christ.) Your body is grounded to the earthly temporal realm. Your soul processes the information of both realms.
Is your spirit peaceful or troubled? Is your soul at rest, or is it stressed? Is your body in harmony or sick?

Jude 1:2 May mercy, [soul] peace, and love be multiplied to you.

6 Steps to Maintaining a Healthy Thought Life:

1. Recognize:

Recognizing (discerning) the true source of the thoughts will also give you the purpose and intent of it. Thoughts that come to you either come from the source of Light, from our own nature, or from the darkness. Thoughts contrary to the Scriptures, or to the Spirit of the Lord are to be recognized and dealt with accordingly. The Holy Spirit will reveal its source.

Amos 4:13 For behold, He Who forms the mountains and creates the wind and declares to man what is his thought, Who makes the morning darkness and treads on the heights of the earth—the Lord, the God of hosts, is His name!

1 Chronicles 28:9 And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father [have personal knowledge of Him, be acquainted with, and understand Him; appreciate, heed, and cherish Him] and serve Him with a blameless heart and a willing mind. For the Lord searches all hearts and minds and understands all the wanderings of the thoughts. If you seek Him [inquiring for and of Him and requiring Him as your first and vital necessity] you will find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever!

Romans 8:6 Now the mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death [death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter]. But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both now and forever].

2. Grab:

Take the negative thought captive, grab it’s influence within your soul, and acknowledge it’s presence & violation.

Deuteronomy 15:9 Beware lest there be a base thought in your [minds and] hearts, and you say, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand, and your eye be evil against your poor brother and you give him nothing, and he cry to the Lord against you, and it be sin in you.

2 Corinthians 10:(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

3. Loose:

Loose it, and it’s effects from your soul: From the mind, from the will, from the emotions, from the memory bank.

Ephesians 2:2 In which at one time you walked [habitually]. You were following the course and fashion of this world [were under the sway of the tendency of this present age], following the prince of the power of the air. [You were obedient to and under the control of] the [demon] spirit that still constantly works in the sons of disobedience [the careless, the rebellious, and the unbelieving, who go against the purposes of God]. Among these we as well as you once lived and conducted ourselves in the passions of our flesh [our behavior governed by our corrupt and sensual nature], obeying the impulses of the flesh and the thoughts of the mind [our cravings dictated by our senses and our dark imaginings]. We were then by nature children of [God’s] wrath and heirs of [His] indignation, like the rest of mankind.

4. Flush:

Flush the fruit of it, the root of it, and the memory of it, with the Blood of Jesus, to purify the soul from it’s effect.

Hebrews 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Psalms 33:10 The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nought; He makes the thoughts and plans of the peoples of no effect.

5. Release:

Release the Love of God to fill the soul with Light and Life, and to restore the harmony and balance of the spirit, the soul, and the body. (Our word, thought, and deed)

Deuteronomy 6:25 And it will be accounted as righteousness (conformity to God’s will in word, thought, and action) for us if we are watchful to do all this commandment before the Lord our God, as He has commanded us.

Colossians 3:15 And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].

6. Replace: 

Replace the negative thought that was just removed with scriptures to build a healthy spirit, and stronger soul.

Philippians 4:For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them]. Practice what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and model your way of living on it, and the God of peace (of [untroubled, undisturbed well-being) will be with you.

The Vision of the Lord as the Barley Cake

Today at the Healing Rooms, I was caught up into a visionary experience:

The Vision of the Lord as the Barley Cake - 07-28-15

I am sitting on the grassy hillside of the mountain again in the vision, and I am sitting beside the Lord. We are clothed in our tunics, and our sandals. I see the valley laying below us and I see the encampment of the enemy arrayed against a group of people living in the valley at the base of the mountain. The group was embattled by the enemy, and I knew that they were being slowly whittled down to a small group. I knew the group was strong, yet they were also very weary in the longevity of the enemy attacks.

Jesus did not look overly concerned, and only sat there watching with his arms wrapped around his knees. I sat there to see what would happen. After a few more minutes of watching, I saw Jesus then stand up, and looked over at me, and said, "Let's have some fun!" Suddenly He grabbed my hand and pulled me up, and then He launched Himself forwards into a tumble with me still holding his hand. Here we are both tumbling down the mountainside like a dual ball, and I hear Jesus laughing all the way down! So I start laughing too, and realize that we are like the barley cake falling down the hillside in Judges 7. The Lord knew my thoughts as we tumbled, and He shouted to me as we rolled, "Exactly!"

Then we reached the bottom of the mountain and as we hit the valley floor, thunder and lightning flew outwards from our rolling momentum, and it hit the enemy forces with great bolts. The enemy began to scatter and run. Then fire broke out everywhere, and we came to a standstill at the edge of the city. We stood and watched the fire burn in a circle, all around the city like a wheel. The fire burned up all of the encampments and the weapons of the enemy that the fleeing army had erected. The people that were worn out, then came and stood by us, and the Lord said to them all, "Come."

The Lord then turned and walked over to a lake that was near the city, and He walked down into the lake until He was under the water. I quickly followed the Lord and went under the water too. I knew the people behind us on the shore were deciding what to do, to either enter the water, or to stay.  I also knew their thoughts, and their thinking of the possibility of getting pounded by the army that was sure to regroup against them. One by one, the group finally chose to follow us, and soon we were all in a group standing under the water together. Then the lake we were all in turned into a body of fire. We were all standing in the flames, and the people were all crying out in the purification process, and soon they were were shouting. After a few minutes they were all worshipping together.

Then the fire died down, and we were all found standing on the valley's dry ground again. The Lord then said to them all standing there, "Never fear anything of the enemy that draws near. I am your Battle Axe, and I am also your Barley Cake. Never fear the tactics, nor the weapons, that the enemy use or would make. Know that these things currently being arrayed against you are only being used to becloud the path that is about to be paved. You are to lead My People into the Purposes that I have ordained, and into the destiny written for you all in this land. There is nothing that can withstand Me, nor My Word, and nothing can withstand My Plans for you. Rise up today; move forth firmly in your faith; and then move into your full inheritance that lies just ahead of you, knowing that certain victory shall be yours in every way."


Judges 7:1-25 Then Jerubbaal, that is, Gideon, and all the people who were with him rose early and encamped beside the spring of Harod; and the camp of Midian was north of them by the hill of Moreh in the valley. The Lord said to Gideon, The people who are with you are too many for Me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel boast about themselves against Me, saying, My own hand has delivered me. So now proclaim in the ears of the men, saying, Whoever is fearful and trembling, let him turn back and depart from Mount Gilead. And 22,000 of the men returned, but 10,000 remained. And the Lord said to Gideon, The men are still too many; bring them down to the water, and I will test them for you there. And he of whom I say to you, This man shall go with you, shall go with you; and he of whom I say to you, This man shall not go with you, shall not go. So he brought the men down to the water, and the Lord said to Gideon, Everyone who laps up the water with his tongue as a dog laps it, you shall set by himself, likewise everyone who bows down on his knees to drink. And the number of those who lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, was 300 men, but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water. And the Lord said to Gideon, With the 300 men who lapped I will deliver you, and give the Midianites into your hand. Let all the others return every man to his home. So the people took provisions and their trumpets in their hands, and he sent all the rest of Israel every man to his home and retained those 300 men. And the host of Midian was below him in the valley. That same night the Lord said to Gideon, Arise, go down against their camp, for I have given it into your hand. But if you fear to go down, go with Purah your servant down to the camp And you shall hear what they say, and afterward your hands shall be strengthened to go down against the camp. Then he went down with Purah his servant to the outposts of the camp of the armed men. And the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the sons of the east lay along the valley like locusts for multitude; and their camels were without number, as the sand on the seashore for multitude. When Gideon arrived, behold, a man was telling a dream to his comrade. And he said, Behold, I dreamed a dream, and behold, a cake of barley bread tumbled into the camp of Midian and came to the tent and struck it so that it fell, and turned it upside down so that the tent lay flat. And his comrade replied, This is nothing else but the sword of Gideon son of Joash, a man of Israel. Into his hand God has given Midian and all the host. When Gideon heard the telling of the dream and its interpretation, he worshiped and returned to the camp of Israel and said, Arise, for the Lord has given into your hand the host of Midian. And he divided the 300 men into three companies, and he put into the hands of all of them trumpets and empty pitchers, with torches inside the pitchers. And he said to them, Look at me, then do likewise. When I come to the edge of their camp, do as I do. When I blow the trumpet, I and all who are with me, then you blow the trumpets also on every side of all the camp and shout, For the Lord and for Gideon! So Gideon and the 100 men who were with him came to the outskirts of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, when the guards had just been changed, and they blew the trumpets and smashed the pitchers that were in their hands. And the three companies blew the trumpets and shattered the pitchers, holding the torches in their left hands, and in their right hands the trumpets to blow leaving no chance to use swords, and they cried, The sword for the Lord and Gideon! They stood every man in his place round about the camp, and all the Midianite army ran—they cried out and fled. When Gideon’s men blew the 300 trumpets, the Lord set every Midianite’s sword against his comrade and against all the army, and the army fled as far as Beth-shittah toward Zererah, as far as the border of Abel-meholah by Tabbath. And the men of Israel were called together out of Naphtali and Asher and all Manasseh, and they pursued Midian. And Gideon sent messengers throughout all the hill country of Ephraim, saying, Come down against the Midianites and take all the intervening fords as far as Beth-barah and also the Jordan. So all the men of Ephraim were gathered together and took all the fords as far as Beth-barah and also the Jordan. And the men of Ephraim took the two princes of Midian, Oreb and Zeeb, and they slew Oreb at the rock of Oreb, and Zeeb they slew at the winepress of Zeeb, and pursued Midian; and they brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon beyond the Jordan.

God is Pulling Back The Veils For a Fuller View


"God is Pulling Back the Veils to Give Us a Fuller View"

The different types of Veils to be removed:

Natural Veils: 

Exodus 26:33 And you shall hang the veil from the clasps and bring the ark of the Testimony into place within the veil; and the veil shall separate for you the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. 13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

It is the heavenly pattern of the Habitation, the House of God on earth. The Tabernacle was also a pattern for our inner life. The Holy Place and Most Holy Place are within us. In our hearts and minds. The garden is within us. We are to be holy in our thoughts, attitudes, speech, and deeds. 

God is removing the roots in us that block or cloud our perceptions of what is true and right. We climbing the mountain of Light, to be filled with that light, and to release that light.

Matthew 27:51 And at once the curtain of the sanctuary of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; the earth shook and the rocks were split. 

Exodus 34:28 Moses was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he ate no bread and drank no water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments. 29 When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tables of the Testimony in his hand, he did not know that the skin of his face shone and sent forth beams by reason of his speaking with the Lord. 30 When Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone, and they feared to come near him. 31 But Moses called to them; and Aaron and all the leaders of the congregation returned to him, and [he] talked with them. 32 Afterward all the Israelites came near, and he gave them in commandment all the Lord had said to him in Mount Sinai. 33 And when Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a veil on his face. 34 But when Moses went in before the Lord to speak with Him, he took the veil off until he came out. And he came out and told the Israelites what he was commanded. 35 The Israelites saw the face of Moses, how the skin of it shone; and Moses put the veil on his face again until he went in to speak with God. 

God will not be hidden anymore. He will invade every blockade to get to us, to give us a chance to receive Him. The blockades can be in our heart, our mind, our flesh, or our ideals. He does not want us to be one way before men and another before God. No more letting others shut God down in us to be politically correct, or to not offend others. No more hiding of the Glory, the angels, the miracle realm, or the power. 

Religious Veils: 

2 Corinthians 3:13 Nor [do we act] like Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze upon the finish of the vanishing [splendor which had been upon it]. 14 In fact, their minds were grown hard and calloused [they had become dull and had lost the power of understanding]; for until this present day, when the Old Testament (the old covenant) is being read, that same veil still lies [on their hearts], not being lifted [to reveal] that in Christ it is made void and done away. 15 Yes, down to this [very] day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies upon their minds and hearts. 16 But whenever a person turns [in repentance] to the Lord, the veil is stripped off and taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom). 18 And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit. 

Whenever we reject the truth, a veil comes over us. Whenever we get offended at a portion of the scripture, and reject it as being for us, then a veil comes over us. Whenever we choose not to believe something of the Spirit of God is real, then a veil comes over us. 

God wants to shred our veils, so we can walk in the full reality of who He is. Whenever we give into persecution, a veil comes over us, and we cave in to the fear of man, and lose more of the Kingdom within us.

Carnal Veils: 

Ephesians 4:17 So this I say and solemnly testify in [the name of] the Lord [as in His presence], that you must no longer live as the heathen (the Gentiles) do in their perverseness [in the folly, vanity, and emptiness of their souls and the futility] of their minds. 18 Their moral understanding is darkened and their reasoning is beclouded. [They are] alienated (estranged, self-banished) from the life of God [with no share in it; this is] because of the ignorance (the want of knowledge and perception, the willful blindness) that is deep-seated in them, due to their hardness of heart [to the insensitiveness of their moral nature]. 19 In their spiritual apathy they have become callous and past feeling and reckless and have abandoned themselves [a prey] to unbridled sensuality, eager and greedy to indulge in every form of impurity [that their depraved desires may suggest and demand]. 

A veil comes over our conscience when we compromise. Layers and layers build up until we become more like the world than like Jesus. That's why many believers grow cold, hard, and eventually leave from following Christ, and go back into the darkness/world. Jesus hated lukewarmness.

Blinding Veils: 

2 Corinthians 4:3 But even if our Gospel (the glad tidings) also be hidden (obscured and covered up with a veil that hinders the knowledge of God), it is hidden [only] to those who are perishing and obscured [only] to those who are spiritually dying and veiled [only] to those who are lost. 4 For the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers’ minds [that they should not discern the truth], preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ (the Messiah), Who is the Image and Likeness of God. 

Language/Revelation Veils: 

John 16:24 Up to this time you have not asked a [single] thing in My Name [as presenting all that I Am]; but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy (gladness, delight) may be full and complete. 25 I have told you these things in parables (veiled language, allegories, dark sayings); the hour is now coming when I shall no longer speak to you in figures of speech, but I shall tell you about the Father in plain words and openly (without reserve). 26 At that time you will ask (pray) in My Name; and I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf [for it will be unnecessary]. 27 For the Father Himself [tenderly] loves you because you have loved Me and have believed that I came out from the Father. 28 I came out from the Father and have come into the world; again, I am leaving the world and going to the Father. 29 His disciples said, Ah, now You are speaking plainly to us and not in parables (veiled language and figures of speech)! 30 Now we know that You are acquainted with everything and have no need to be asked questions. Because of this we believe that you [really] came from God. 

The Veils are being removed so that we can know Him: 

Isaiah 25:6 And on this Mount [Zion] shall the Lord of hosts make for all peoples a feast of rich things [symbolic of His coronation festival inaugurating the reign of the Lord on earth, in the wake of a background of gloom, judgment, and terror], a feast of wines on the lees—of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined. 7 And He will destroy on this mountain the covering of the face that is cast over the heads of all peoples [in mourning], and the veil [of profound wretchedness] that is woven and spread over all nations. 8 He will swallow up death [in victory; He will abolish death forever]. And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces; and the reproach of His people He will take away from off all the earth; for the Lord has spoken it.

2 Timothy 1:9 [For it is He] Who delivered and saved us and called us with a calling in itself holy and leading to holiness [to a life of consecration, a vocation of holiness]; [He did it] not because of anything of merit that we have done, but because of and to further His own purpose and grace (unmerited favor) which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began [eternal ages ago]. 10 [It is that purpose and grace] which He now has made known and has fully disclosed and made real [to us] through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, Who annulled death and made it of no effect and brought life and immortality (immunity from eternal death) to light through the Gospel.

John 14:18 I will not leave you as orphans [comfortless, desolate, bereaved, forlorn, helpless]; I will come [back] to you. 19 Just a little while now, and the world will not see Me any more, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also. 20 At that time [when that day comes] you will know [for yourselves] that I am in My Father, and you [are] in Me, and I [am] in you. 21 The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.]

VOICE: 21 The one who loves Me will do the things I have commanded. My Father loves everyone who loves Me; and I will love you and reveal My heart, will, and nature to you.

"East Coast Prophetic Council" Gathering at SOG

“Understanding the Reality of God”

“Understanding the Reality of God”

In the vision, I saw a scroll descend before me and it was full of light. Then I saw a pen descend and hover in front of me. The scroll and the pen were both solid and light. I reached up to take hold of the scroll and the pen. The scroll was shining and contained life. When I touched it, it vibrated in my hand. It was like a flowing screen. The pen was also alive, and its ink was light. When the ink touched the scroll it came alive too, and words flowed from it like water onto the scroll (living screen). 

The Lord then said, "this is a picture for you of how I write the knowledge of Me into your spirit and soul. My thoughts, (which are higher than yours) descend from above like the scroll. My Spirit writes or projects My Word onto the screen of your spirit and soul with light. My light then engages and activates your spirit and soul with life and with the greater reality of Me. Your spirit and soul then receives that light and knowledge as truth, which then becomes part of your inner man."

"When My thoughts and words dwell within you, then the life that is within can nourish your heart, your soul, and your flesh. I am Life. My Son is Life. My Spirit is Life. My Words are Life. My Thoughts are Life. When you engage My Life, and are obedient to walk in it, then it will unfold even more within you, and flow like living streams of light, and your entire being can then grow up into the greater knowledge of Me. You are to feed upon Me, and live by My Life and Light, and become as My Light, so that in all that you say and do I can be clearly seen and known."


Life, Light, Scroll, Pen:

1 John 1: [We are writing] about the Word of Life [in] Him Who existed from the beginning, Whom we have heard, Whom we have seen with our [own] eyes, Whom we have gazed upon [for ourselves] and have touched with our [own] hands. And the Life [an aspect of His being] was revealed (made manifest, demonstrated), and we saw [as eyewitnesses] and are testifying to and declare to you the Life, the eternal Life [in Him] Who already existed with the Father and Who [actually] was made visible (was revealed) to us [His followers]. What we have seen and [ourselves] heard, we are also telling you, so that you too may realize and enjoy fellowship as partners and partakers with us. And [this] fellowship that we have [which is a distinguishing mark of Christians] is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ (the Messiah). ...

2 Corinthians 3:1 Are we starting to commend ourselves again? Or we do not, like some [false teachers], need written credentials or letters of recommendation to you or from you, [do we]? [No] you yourselves are our letter of recommendation (our credentials), written in your hearts, to be known (perceived, recognized) and read by everybody. You show and make obvious that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, not written with ink but with [the] Spirit of [the] living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

Writing and imprinting upon hearts and minds:

Psalms 105:8 He is [earnestly] mindful of His covenant and forever it is imprinted on His heart, the word which He commanded and established to a thousand generations,

Deuteronomy 30:14 But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your mind and in your heart, so that you can do it.

Deuteronomy 11:18 Therefore you shall lay up these My words in your [minds and] hearts and in your [entire] being, and bind them for a sign upon your hands and as forehead bands between your eyes.

Deuteronomy 6:5 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your [mind and] heart and with your entire being and with all your might. And these words which I am commanding you this day shall be [first] in your [own] minds and hearts; [then] You shall whet and sharpen them so as to make them penetrate, and teach and impress them diligently upon the [minds and] hearts of your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down and when you rise up.

Psalms 45:My heart overflows with a goodly theme; I address my psalm to a King. My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.

Colossians 3:16 Let the word [spoken by] Christ (the Messiah) have its home [in your hearts and minds] and dwell in you in [all its] richness, as you teach and admonish and train one another in all insight and intelligence andwisdom [in spiritual things, and as you sing] psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with [His] grace in your hearts.

Feeding upon Christ; the Light, the Living Springs:

Psalms 37:3 Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, andtruly you shall be fed. Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.

Isaiah 49:8 Thus says the Lord, In an acceptable and favorable time I have heard and answered you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you; and I will preserve you and give you for a covenant to the people, to raise up andestablish the land [from its present state of ruin] and to apportion and cause them to inherit the desolate [moral wastes of heathenism, their] heritages, Saying to those who are bound, Come forth, and to those who are in [spiritual] darkness, Show yourselves [come into the light of the Sun of righteousness]. They shall feed in all the ways [in which they go], and their pastures shall be [not in deserts, but] on all the bare [grass-covered] hills. 10 They will not hunger or thirst, neither will mirage [mislead] or scorching wind or sun smite them; for He Who has mercy on them will lead them, and by springs of water will He guide them.

2 Peter 1:For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue). By means of these He has bestowed on us His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them you may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature.

His scroll is unrolling within us, and then through us. We are becoming as He is – it begins within us first - and then outwardly, as we go. His words of Life will burn within us, and flow out of us, to do His will in the earth.

-  Read all of Ezekiel Chapters 1-3 in the Amplified Version for more understanding of this entire interaction.

Ezekiel 3:1 He said to me, Son of man, eat what you find [in this book]; eat this scroll; then go and speak to the house of Israel. So I opened my mouth, and He caused me to eat the scroll. And He said to me, Son of man, eat this scroll that I give you and fill your stomach with it. Then I ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. And He said to me, Son of man, go, get you to the house of Israel and speak to them with My words. For you are not sent to a people of a foreign speech and of a difficult language but to the house of Israel; Not to many peoples of foreign speech and of a hard language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely, had I sent you to such people, they would have listened to you and heeded My words. But the house of Israel will not listen to you and obey you since they will not listen to Me and obey Me, for all the house of Israel are impudent and stubborn of heart. Behold, I have made your face strong andhard against their faces and your forehead strong and hard against their foreheads. Like an adamant harder than flint or a diamond point have I made your forehead; fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house. 10 Moreover, He said to me, Son of man, all My words that I shall speak to you, receive in your heart and hear with your ears. 11 And go, get you to the [Jewish] captives [in Babylon], to the children of your people, and speak to them and tell them, Thus says the Lord God, whether they will hear or refuse to hear. 12 Then the Spirit lifted me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing [saying], Blessed be the glory of the Lord from His place [above the firmament]. 13 I heard the noise of the wings of the living creatures as they touched and joined each one the other [its sister wing], and I heard the noise of the wheels beside them and the noise of a great rushing. 14 So the Spirit lifted me up and took me away [in the vision], and I went in bitterness [of discouragement] in the heat of my spirit; and the hand of the Lord was strong upon me.

We will speak forth that which has been formed within us, and as we speak out His Words, they will be done in the earth. 

God wants to be seen and heard, and He wants all men to receive Him, so they can walk in the knowledge of Him. 

God is writing new things within us all, and we shall understand, and be read of by all men!

“Hearing from Heaven and Walking in Heaven’s Council on the Earth” - Podcast

“Hearing from Heaven and Walking in Heaven’s Council on the Earth” -  Podcast

The link to the podcast can be found at:

The message notes are below:

The primary importance for us all is in hearing from Heaven- gaining Heaven’s perspective for the earth- so we can cooperate with Heaven to bring change to the earth! The Lord speaks in seasons of darkness & in seasons of light! 

Romans 13:11 Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah).

Ephesians 5:14 Therefore He says, Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine (make day dawn) upon you and give you light.

Heaven is actively moving throughout the earth, waking the earth to its reality, so that we can move with the purposes of the Father.

Isaiah 41:4 Who has prepared and done this, calling forth and guiding the destinies of the generations [of the nations] from the beginning? I, the Lord—the first [existing before history began] and with the last [an ever-present, unchanging God]—I am He.

Job 12:22 He uncovers deep things out of darkness and brings into light black gloom and the shadow of death. 23 He makes nations great, and He destroys them; He enlarges nations [and then straitens and shrinks them again], and leads them [away captive].

Acts 14:16 In generations past He permitted all the nations to walk in their own ways; 17 Yet He did not neglect to leave some witness of Himself, for He did you good and [showed you] kindness and gave you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with nourishment and happiness.

EXB: 16 In the past [generations], God let all the nations do what they wanted [go their own way]17 Yet he proved he is real [has not left himself without a witness] by showing kindness [doing good], by giving you rain from heaven and crops at the right times [seasons], by giving you [satisfying/filling you with] food and filling your hearts with joy [Ps. 104:13–15].”

Walking in Heaven’s Council, and the manifestation of His Presence in our earthly lives:

God is looking for the generation that will walk with Him. A greater value is placed upon hearing from Heaven, and upon receiving the council of the Lord. The wisdom that comes from heaven is critical for our generation.

Psalms 24:The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness of it, the world and they who dwell in it. For He has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the currents and the rivers. Who shall go up into the mountain of the Lord? Or who shall stand in His Holy Place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted himself up to falsehood or to what is false, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation [description] of those who seek Him [who inquire of and for Him and of necessity require Him], who seek Your face, [O God of] Jacob. Selah [pause, and think of that]! Lift up your heads, O you gates; and be lifted up, you age-abiding doors, that the King of glory may come in.

The Wisdom from above affects the earth:

James 3:17 But the wisdom from above is first of all pure (undefiled); then it is peace-loving, courteous (considerate, gentle). [It is willing to] yield to reason, full of compassion and good fruits; it is wholehearted and straightforward, impartial and unfeigned (free from doubts, wavering, and insincerity). 18 And the harvest of righteousness (of conformity to God’s will in thought and deed) is [the fruit of the seed] sown in peace by those who work for and make peace [in themselves and in others, that peace which means concord, agreement, and harmony between individuals, with undisturbedness, in a peaceful mind free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts].

Relationship comes from being with Him, in His Presence, it is communicated to us through His Voice. Intimacy, Instruction, Council, Direction, Correction, and Judgment proceed from Him to us within His Voice.

The importance of understanding the term, "The Latter Days."

Daniel 2:28 But there is a God in heaven Who reveals secrets, and He has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what it is that shall be in the latter days (at the end of days). Your dream and the visions in your head upon your bed are these:

Jeremiah 23:18 For who among them has stood in the council of the Lord, that he should perceive and hear His word? Who has marked His word [noticing and observing and giving attention to it] and has [actually] heard it? 19 Behold, the tempest of the Lord has gone forth in wrath, a whirling tempest; it shall whirl andburst upon the heads of the wicked. 20 The anger of the Lord shall not turn back until He has executed andaccomplished the thoughts and intents of His mind and heart. In the latter days you shall consider andunderstand it perfectly. 21 I did not send these [false] prophets, yet they ran; I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied. 22 But if they had stood in My council, then they would have caused My people to hear My words, then they would have turned them [My people] from their evil way and from the evil of their doings.

Remember, Justice is the plumb-line, and Righteousness is the Plummet. 

Isaiah 28:17 I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plummet; and hail will sweep away the refuge of lies, and waters will overwhelm the hiding place (the shelter).

Jeremiah 30:23 Behold, the tempest of the Lord has gone forth with wrath, a sweeping and gathering tempest; it shall whirl and burst upon the heads of the wicked. 24 The fierce anger and indignation of the Lord shall not turn back until He has executed and accomplished the thoughts and intents of His mind andheart. In the latter days you shall understand this.

Hearing from Heaven in the Latter Days:

Deuteronomy 4:30 When you are in tribulation and all these things come upon you, in the latter days you will turn to the Lord your God and be obedient to His voice. 31 For the Lord your God is a merciful God; He will not fail you or destroy you or forget the covenant of your fathers, which He swore to them. 32 For ask now of the days that are past, which were before you, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from one end of the heavens to the other, whether such a great thing as this has ever occurred or been heard of anywhere. 33 Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as you heard, and live? 34 Or has God ever tried to go and take for Himself a nation from the midst of another nation, by trials, by signs, by wonders, by war, by a mighty hand, by an outstretched arm, and by great terrors, as the Lord your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes? 35 To you it was shown, that you might realize and have personal knowledge that the Lord is God; there is no other besides Him. 36 Out of heaven He made you hear His voice, that He might correct, discipline, and admonish you; and on earth He made you see His great fire, and you heard His words out of the midst of the fire. 37 And because He loved your fathers, He chose their descendants after them, and brought you out from Egypt with His own Presence, by His mighty power, 38 Driving out nations from before you, greater and mightier than yourselves, to bring you in, to give you their land for an inheritance, as it is this day; 39 Know, recognize, and understand therefore this day and turn your [mind and] heart to it that the Lord is God in the heavens above and upon the earth beneath; there is no other. 40 Therefore you shall keep His statutes and His commandments, which I command you this day, that it may go well with you and your children after you and that you may prolong your days in the land which the Lord your God gives you forever. 

Micah 4:1 But in the latter days it shall come to pass that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains; and it shall be exalted above the hills, and peoples shall flow to it. And many nations shall come and say, Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, that He may teach us His ways, and we may walk in His paths. For the law shall go forth out of Zion and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And He shall judge between many peoples and shall decide for strong nations afar off, and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree, and none shall make them afraid, for the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken it. For all the peoples [now] walk every man in the name of his god, but we will walk in the name of the Lord our God forever and ever. In that day, says the Lord, I will assemble the lame, and I will gather those who have been driven away and those whom I have afflicted. And I will make the lame a remnant, and those who were cast off a strong nation; and the Lord shall reign over them in Mount Zion from this time forth and forever. And you, O tower of the flock, the hill and stronghold of the Daughter of Zion, unto you the former dominion shall come, the kingdom of the Daughter of Jerusalem.Now why do you cry aloud? Is there no king among you? Has your counselor perished, that pains have taken you like a woman in labor? 10 Writhe in pain and labor to bring forth, O Daughter of Zion, like a woman in childbirth; for now you shall go forth out of the city and you shall live in the open country. You shall go to Babylon; there you shall be rescued. There the Lord shall redeem you from the hand of your enemies. 11 Now many nations are assembled against you, saying, Let her be profaned and let our eyes gaze upon Zion. 12 But they know not the thoughts of the Lord, neither do they understand His plan, for He shall gather them as the sheaves to the threshing floor. 13 Arise and thresh, O Daughter of Zion! For I will make your horn iron and I will make your hoofs bronze; you shall beat in pieces many peoples, and I will devote their gain to the Lord and their treasure to the Lord of all the earth.

Nations and Generations destinies are all hanging in the balance. 

God is looking for a man who understands, and who will walk with Him, talk with Him, and be His Voice in the earth. 

The Harvest is ready and the Threshers are being prepared to speak!
