There will come a day when prophesy meets reality. When that day comes hang on tight for you will be in for the ride of your life. God is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19). Imagine Sarah when she found out she was pregnant? Imagine Elizabeth when she found out she was pregnant? Imagine Joseph the day Pharoh called for him? Imagine Esther when the king picked her? God didn’t speak it to you to taunt you, He spoke it to you so you would get ready. Preparation feels foolish when there’s no evidence of what God said, but imagine Noah when it began to rain? Or Elisha when Elijah went up in a whirlwind and the mantle fell down. It’s happening again in our generation, I sure hope your ready, because it’s going to be a wild ride with the Holy Spirit and us. My hands are already up, let’s go!
What standard of measure do you use? Are you a spoons size person; a cup size person; quart; gallon; barrel; tanker? The measurements keep going until you reach abundance size measurements. The reason I bring this up is because Jesus says in Luke 6:38 “ give and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure —- pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.“
We love the idea of a good measure pressed down shaken together and running over but we have to understand we are giving back to based on what we give out. What measurement are you using when you serve others, when you love others, when you forgive others, when you honor others? The injustice that most of us don’t recognize is that we expect more than we give, we expect people to serve us more than we’ve served others. The other challenge is, we will not reap until due season, therefore we have to keep giving, serving, loving, forgiving, honoring even when we don’t see a return. Because if you’re measurement is abundance that’s a lot of giving.
All I know is that if we keep doing good as the Lord had told us to do, even if you don’t see a return immediately, you will see it eventually according to the measure that you have measured it out. As for me and my house or measurement is abundance.
The Lord highlighted this morning the new day that is dawning. He had me look at the sun rising and said, “The sun of righteousness is rising with healing in its wings.” I knew that was a scripture, so looked it up and found it in Malachi 4:2. This new day that is breaking is coming with various kinds of healing. It will be a part of the new day not just a healing revival. The new day is multifaceted, but healing is paramount because “sick” people can’t hear God. Therefore, the Lord told me, “The healing is going to restore their hearing.”
The dawning of the new day is also going to deal with the wicked for there is about to be a land transfer from the wicked to the humble. Malachi 4:3 says, “You will tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the souls of your feet on the day which I am preparing, says the Lord of hosts.” Psalm 37:10-11 says, “Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more;
And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there. But the humble will inherit the land And will delight themselves in abundant prosperity.” This new day healing the people and healing the land. It’s going to be an amazing day!
I see a class of leaders arising who will not make God small so people can understand Him. They will make people big so they have the capacity to comprehend God. As these leaders continue to magnify the Lord in His holiness, righteousness, faithfulness, and lovingkindness, the people will mature into the majesty of God.
These leaders will live with open hands and open hearts for they have seen the eternal God and they know their temporal understanding is incomplete. They don’t lock into one message, one idea, one revelation, one destination. They swim in the deep waters of God’s river and let his current carry them wherever it will. They trust God, God knows them, and together they move with the rhythm of his roar.
Psalm 36:8 “They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; And You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.”
We are about to witness, testify to and experience the boomerang effect. While praying Psalm 35 this morning the Lord showed me the boomerang effect when David said, “Let destruction come upon him unawares,
And let the net which he hid catch himself; Into that very destruction let him fall.” (Psalm 36:8)
The Lord said, the boomerang effect is going to take everything the enemy planned, prepared and plotted against God’s people and it will boomerang on him. The Lord also said, the boomer effect is about to activate seed that has been sown. For the boomerang effect is the law of sowing and reaping.
“Do not be deceived. God cannot be mocked. Whatsoever a man sows that he shall reap.” (Galatians 6:7). This is the boomerang effect that is about to hit both the enemy and the seed we have sown. Get ready for you and I are about to see God’s boomerang effect!
Change is work that’s why most people don’t change. We want things to be different, but we don’t want to put in the work to change. If there is no effort there will not be a different result. We must carve out a new path if we want a different result. Change doesn’t happen, because we complain about it. Change doesn’t happen for us by wanting others to change. We remain the same even though we’re miserable. Change is a personal responsibility. People can see your unwillingness to change, but you can’t see it. This is why nothing changes for you. Change is your responsibility not someone else’s.
Paul said in Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.”
Most people know what changes they need to make, but most people are unwilling to make those changes because they don’t want to do the work that the change is going to require. Therefore they expect everyone around them to change so they don’t have to. As believers we have a responsibility to change. If you choose not to change, that is your choice, but then I encourage you to choose not to complain about that what you choose not to change.
If you want to live an abundant life; if you want to go on adventures with God; if you want to experience the fullness of joy; you are going to have to be willing to change. It’s going to be work, but it will be worth it. Make a change, make a move, and watch God open up the rivers of living water inside of you. You don’t have to stay the same, you don’t have to live in the same place your whole life, you can change but you must be willing to put in the work.
A cursory study of other religions will wield for us an understanding of how blessed we are that YHVH is our God. The Judeo-Christian faith has a living, accessible, approachable God that wants to be involved in our lives. Unless we know about or have experienced other faiths and their beliefs, we don’t realize how powerful this is.
When David reveals, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. Do not be as the horse or as the mule which have no understanding, Whose trappings include bit and bridle to hold them in check, Otherwise they will not come near to you.
Many are the sorrows of the wicked, But he who trusts in the LORD, lovingkindness shall surround him” (Psalm 32:8-10)…we will do well to take heed to His instruction and His leading.
When our eyes are opened to who our God really is, following His lead is easy, because He speaks, He leads, He counsels, He’s involved in our lives and loves it. There is truly no one like our God!
On Monday I went to breakfast with a friend and I said to her, I smell the smoke of a rocket launching. I don’t typically talk like that so knew it was inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Well, yesterday I was on a phone call in my backyard and then I headed out to run a couple errands. I came back 90 minutes later. I sat down at my desk and out in my backyard on my patio table there was a strange looking black object. I go outside and it’s the bottom half of a rocket. It was not there just 90 minutes earlier.
Prophetic pictures are kisses from heaven that confirm what God is saying. I didn’t think much about what I said at breakfast on Monday about the smell of the smoke of a rocket launching. But now I believe we are in a launching moment. We are about to see some take offs. Not only can I smell the smoke of a rocket launching, I’ve got the base of one to prove it.
In Psalm 30:11 David said, “You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness.”
I hear the Lord saying, “My people know more about binding and loosing the enemy than they do about loosing and girding.” The Lord went on to say, “I have loosed my people from mourning, sadness, grief, but they will not let go of that which they have become familiar with and let me gird them with gladness. They cannot be bound to mourning and girded with gladness simultaneously. They must come out of mourning, weeping, sadness and be girded with gladness.”
Church the days of sadness, weeping, gloom and doom, are over. Or as the psalmist says in Psalm 30:5, “Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning.” It is a new day, the night is over the day has broke. The Lord has loosed us from mourning now we must cast off the sackcloth. Remember Bartimus, who was on the side of the road crying out Son of David have mercy on me and when Jesus called him, he threw aside his beggars cloak, jumped up and came to Jesus. (Mark 10:46-52). This is where we are, we’ve been loosed of our sackcloth, our mourning coat, but we must cast it off, jump up and come to Jesus.
Jesus is girding us with gladness, or shall I say girding those who come out of the season of mourning, who cast off the cloak of sadness and grief. To gird means, encompass, to equip, to clothe, to strengthen. The night is over, the day is here, it’s time to get up and be girded with gladness, it’s a new day and it looks nothing like the old days!
In prayer this morning the Holy Spirit spoke to me about being translocatedly planted. The Spirit was showing me how we are seated with Christ in heavenly places and yet planted trans locally on earth. Essentially explaining how we are in two places at once just like Jesus was. When I came in the house the word translocatedlly planted stuck with me, so I wanted to know if its a real word. I should have known it was going to be loaded because if the Holy Spirit is using a word I’ve never heard there are things to be learned. Many things.
Translocation plant = Translocation is the process within plants that functions to deliver nutrients and other molecules over long distances throughout the organism. Translocation occurs within a series of cells known as the phloem pathway, or phloem transport system, with phloem being the principal food-conducting tissue in vascular plants. Nutrients are translocated in the phloem as solutes in a solution called phloem. Various cell types utilize these nutrients to support their requirements for life or store them for future use. Because translocation is responsible for the delivery of nutrients to developing seeds and fruits, this process is critical to the achievement of optimal crop yield. It also accounts for the ultimate nutritional composition of plant foods important to humans. (Encyclopedia dot com).
You can’t make this stuff up. With us being seated in heavenly places the Lord is delivering nutrients over long distances through us and to us. This is a vital process called translocation and it is what develops seeds and fruits, it is critical also for crop yields. I am no horticulturalist, but this has God written all over it. Translocation plant. I love how the Holy Spirit teaches us words we do not know and has given us technology to understand what he is trying to speak to us.
The pathway between our seated position in Christ in heavenly realms releases nutrients into our earthly location as sons and servants of God. This translocation is absolutely critical for our growth and maturity and crop yields. We keep this connection free and clear through our obedience to the word of God and our hunger to study and learn the word of God in order to know the God of the word. We my friends, have been translocatedlly planted on earth and receive our nutrients from He who sits on the throne.
Revelation 22:2 “On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.”
