What If?

    What if everything you are ashamed of, every secret ugly thing in your past, every bad deed, was put in a trash bin and burned to ash? What if every lie, every act of betrayal, every underhanded scheme you’ve ever cooked up, every word that hurt someone and every little thing you knew was wrong, was wiped off the face of the earth and nothing could be held against you? That can be your reality. This is exactly why God Himself came down to earth in the human form of Jesus, the Messiah, to free you. History shows that man couldn’t find a way to obey God but also atone for his own sins. He wanted to play and not pay, so he got angry, judgmental, and critical of others. It’s easier to look at others than within one’s self. Then, man made up rules he could live with, that kept others in line with what they believed to be correct. They formed a team of like-minded people. They forgot about the love of God and sought to appease Him with rituals and sacrifices. They found ways to justify their own beliefs and behaviors. It was not holy; it was a list of excuses to validate their unholiness. Over the centuries, this thinking has become more and more on the side of rationalization for sin. Even the rules and religions are no longer revered because the flesh of man has become the supreme ruler instead of God. The trouble with the logic of man is that God does in fact exist. Roll with me a minute. History bears out that God can’t be ignored without consequence. One day every person ever born, will bow their knee to Jesus whether they choose to believe or not. What will you say at that moment? Will you say, “hey, I followed the rules”. Will He say, “those weren’t my rules, I just wanted your heart.”

John 10:10 says the devil has come to steal, to kill and to destroy, but I have come that you may have life, and have life more abundantly. So here is the good news, there is a way out of this turmoil. Repentance is the simple door to abundant living. It’s not a human court of law; repentance and admission of guilt does not bring penalty and a sentence. It brings freedom and righteousness before God. Think of it, righteousness means right standing, and you have that by just believing what Jesus said. Yeah, it’s that easy. So why choose death when you can choose freedom from sin and shame? Why not believe? If the Bible is the absolute truth and word of God, then as it says, we all fall short of the glory of God. Save the argument about the veracity of the Bible and hear this crucial point. There is something built into your spirit my friend, something that yearns to believe. You were born with it. Give that small voice within you a moment of your time. Explore what is there for you. The Bible says God knows the number of hairs upon your head. He knows you, He actually created you for Himself. He holds His hand out to you with unfathomable love, a promise of life and freedom. Just look at this for a moment. You are free to choose, but I’m asking you to first ponder it honestly for a second. He offers freedom from fear, physical pain, addiction, the false imprisonment of lies and accusations against you, and removes the torment of hopelessness. He doesn’t promise perfection or the need for it, or an easy life, but ask yourself, do you have that now? How is trying to be a good person working out for you? Are you hitting a wall, attempting to live within the miserable confines of rules and regulations in an attempt to “do what is right”? Here’s the difference. In God, you are free. You have no desire to do wrong things. You are free of self, rules, restrictions, and sin. You are free in your mind and your will and empowered with Jesus. You belong. You are wanted and revered and longed for.

This is who Jesus is. He is God who became flesh and entered the world to complete a mission. His directive from the Father was to give earth a picture of Heaven, an articulation of God as love, not wrath. Wrath didn’t work. Jesus brought light, the illumination of truth. He said, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one gets to the Father except by Me. Period . That’s the way out. That’s the bridge. Of course, the religious people hated Him because he represented liberty, not control. They murdered Him in the most horrific and inhuman manner, and He put up with it because He was assigned to be the bridge. He suffered for you, for a way out for you. They mocked Him and reviled Him because He threatened their manmade towers of power. He defied their self-created belief systems of excused behavior that separated them from the love of God. The movement began in Him and continues now. He paid the penalty and restitution for the sin of every person ever born. Sin is simply separation from God. It doesn’t matter if you told a lie or horrifically murdered someone, it’s forgiven if you will ask. And God doesn’t remember it if it’s forgiven. You ask forgiveness, and it doesn’t exist.

Let me ask you this. Are you afraid to give up your choice of sins, your carefully crafted justifications and excuses for bad behavior? Are you really satisfied with being secretly sick and miserable and afraid? Come on beloved. Come on and see what He has planned for you. The Bible says to taste and see that the Lord is good. Don’t be afraid or ashamed, come and taste it. Nobody is so bad that they can’t be forgiven. You will not be judged at this moment; you will be welcomed. Walk into freedom and loving acceptance. Leave it, leave the mess, and let Him clean it up. Let Jesus breathe life into your weary soul. Say this, “Lord save me.” Say, ” Jesus, I want to believe, I want to be free. I want to be loved and accepted. Please take over Jesus. Make me in right standing with You. I don’t want to be separated from You any longer.” Come on, you have faith at this very moment, at least the size of a tiny mustard seed. That minuscule amount of faith is enough. I tell you this because I am a witness to you of its absolute truth in my life and my own experience. The moment you believe, you are delivered from the power of darkness and conveyed with explosive force, and transplanted, into the kingdom of the Son of God’s love, in whom we have redemption through His blood and the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:12-14. If you are in Christ, you are a new creation. Old things just die, all things become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17. You will take on a new perspective, a new world view. Acceptance. Hope. Just try it. Blessings.

Another Miracle

    August 1, 2020, 10:30 a.m. The sudden pain was excruciating. All I did was sit on the couch, lean back and I heard a repulsive, wet, crunching sound, followed by exploding pain. I could not move, sit, or stand. I felt paralyzed. I called my husband who helped me to the floor. The pain was unbearable. I gasped for air, fighting down the nausea. Something had snapped, my right side and lower back was wrapped in agony. My arms and hands begin to tremble and went numb. Mike sat down on the floor next to me and silently prayed. I began to pray, to call out to Jesus my healer. After what seemed like hours, we managed to get me to the couch. Even though the pain was tormenting, surprisingly, I fell asleep next to Mike who continued to pray. An hour later I woke up, afraid to move, but there was an awareness that I had no pain! I gingerly moved a leg, no pain. I became aware that I was completely pain free. I sat up, I stood, I walked. No pain. A miracle. Joy flooded my heart as I realized that Jesus intervened. I am so grateful, I love Him so! This is the supernatural life. This is the protection and love of a Savior who sees and hears and takes action. Just believe my friends, run with confidence in the love of God, never give up. He is waiting for you; His hand is outstretched. I’m telling you; this is normal. This is how it is supposed to be! Jump in!

20-20 Vision in 2020

This word came as I was driving home from church yesterday.

The new year will bring 20-20 vision; a new clarity and understanding into all things. There will be a settling of divine purpose, a shoring up of foundations and an acute spiritual awareness in the Body of Christ. As eyes open to the magnitude of the Word and the Spirit, a clean transparency of heart will be craved. People will fall at the feet of Jesus in repentance and revival of spirit. Pain, sorrow and loss will melt away. 20-20 vision in 2020 will change the path of many to the new road that leads to glory. Bless the Lord Oh my soul, will be the theme! Revelation will come in frustration free packaging. Saving grace, saving grace! Good news! That’s the new anthem of the Body of Christ.

The Library, the Tree, and the River. A Conversation with Jesus

Come to the Library. What do you see?

Very dimly, I see walls and stacks covered with books. My focus is on the library table I’m sitting at. There are rows of tables. I’ve been here several times; the building is magnificent in its gold leafed splendor. The stacks of books are old and worn, but not dusty.

Open that big ancient book before you.

There are pictures and notes and footnotes below the pictures. The images are clear, lifelike, almost like photos. There are pictures of events; Jesus in the boat on the Galilee, Moses on Mt. Sinai, Moses in his reed boat on the Nile.

This is the history scrapbook of the world. I’ve recorded everything; every event, every life, every tear, every joyful moment. See the tiny book there on the table? Open it. What do you see?

I see gray pages and black lettering with black and white dull pictures. It’s dim and hard to see. It seems insignificant. I’m not interested, I want to see the big book again.

This is the book of the devil’s attempts at victory. He is insignificant. It’s a shame, he was so beautiful and loving at first. It broke my heart to expel him from Heaven. He tries to steal, kill and destroy, but my children resist him. He has done much damage, but he lives in frustration because of my victory. His book of triumph is small, love always prevails. You must fight him and keep him insignificant in your life and that of your family and friends. Yes, he is at work, but I have given you gifts to discern and overcome.

Look at the book of maps. These are the places the gospel has been presented. It is updated daily. Almost every piece of earth has now heard it. People can accept or reject it; their choice.

We are no longer in the library. We are walking in a park; the park of Heaven where the trees and the river are. There is the Tree of Life. It bears fruit unto righteousness. The leaves are for the healing of the nations. Revelation 22. Somehow I remembered that.

Pick some leaves. Hold them and pray for the healing of the nations; for old wounds and resentment from past conflicts and wars to cease. Pray for truth to come to leadership. Wash them in the water of the River of Life and let the healing sap flow all over the earth.

Yes Lord. Please bring healing to the hearts and minds of the world. I’m realizing that the leaves I hold are extremely powerful. I stop and pray for the world leaders. An urgency rises in my spirit. Jesus continues after a minute.

The Tree of Life exists in Heaven for your use on earth. It can’t thrive on earth; it would eventually be destroyed. But here, it is safe, and its provision never fails. Come and pick its fruit, come receive divine health, wealth and everything you need for life and godliness. It’s all here in Heaven, right before my throne, being fed by the River of Life. Come and take all you need. It is not to high and out of reach. You are a citizen of Heaven; the fruit is free. The leaves will not cease to exist until they are no longer needed. Use them.

I’m taking the fruit of freedom from sin and shame and I’m feeding the spirits of my family and friends. I’m taking the fruit of provision and feeding my loved one’s health, healing and peace. I declare they rise with health. I’m taking that fruit of the Spirit into my life. I receive the providence of God. Thank you for that. I can come and pick the fruit any time. Anyone can!

I realize, I am standing on the main street of Heaven, right before the throne room. It’s like a huge amphitheater overlooking the park. As I slowly turn from the Tree of Life and the River, I see the Father and Son leaning toward me as they sit on their thrones, each smiling with loving eyes and excitedly giddy body language. They want me here; they invite me to partake of Heaven and share the good news on earth. Yes! They are so happy! It looks like they are saying, another one comes and understands! Yes! I realize I can come visit anytime! Someday I will live here, but now I’m free to come and visit. I’m free to partake of the Tree and the River, the library and vaults of promise. Everyone can!

To live in the supernatural is normal. Let people know there is more. You are citizens of Heaven temporarily assigned to Earth. You are welcome to visit and partake. My throne room is open to all who believe. You must pray Eph 1 over the Church. Remove the blinders, rebuke the lies of Satan. Open the eyes of their understanding with the Word that they may know the riches of my glory, all freely available to them. If I would give my only son, why would I not give everything else? Tell them I have set before them all life and
liberty and abundance. There’s so much more! Take!

Spiritual Irrigation

We are irrigating our small 5-acre patch of alfalfa that happened to come with the new house. It’s hard work for people our age, but somebody’s gotta do it. Twice a day my husband and I go out and change the location of the irrigation pipes. Each galvanized pipe is about 16 feet long and we hand carry them, hook them together and repeat the process until all the line of pipes are moved to the new location in the field. Then we turn the water on to fill the line and start the big gun sprinklers. It takes a little over an hour to unhook the pipes, walk them to the next location and start the water. The work is hard. We tromp through 3 ft tall alfalfa plants wearing heavy rubber boots; mosquitos swarming all around, sweat dripping, bending and lifting and carrying. I’m kinda proud of us for even being able to do it! It is a priority. If we don’t steward the crop, it will die and we would be left with a field of dried up twigs, unusable as feed for neighboring farm animals.

Faith is like that. If I don’t persevere to water my spirit with the Word of God, I will dry up, be ineffective and ignorant of His immeasurable goodness. If I don’t immerse myself in conversation with God and scripture, I won’t know Him, know His character and His profound love. Just as water brings nourishment and vitality to the alfalfa, so does time with Jesus do for me. It nurtures me that I may provide spiritual food to others. Today I will pull on my spiritual boots, push myself past my physical limits and stretch my ability to persevere. Why? Because I know God will do what He says He will do according to His Word.

I pray for you in this moment my friends, that the big gun sprinklers of glory stretch over you, educate you, and water your soul and spirit. I pray the Word of God opens the eyes of your understanding and fills you with supernatural vitality. Let the love of the Father saturate you and bring you peace. Blessings.
