I have been meditating for two weeks on Psalm 119:163-165: "I hate and abhor falsehood, but Your law do I love. Seven times a day and all day long do I praise You because of Your righteous decrees. Great peace have they who love Your law; nothing shall offend them or make them stumble."
Offense is usually the emotional issue of our lives that stops us from advancing. So many people live with offense. In King David's life, he not only stayed one step ahead of death, but found the key to moving forward in his life by staying beyond offense.
Once Yeshua began to advance the Kingdom through His ministry on Earth, we find the same issue in His life. John the Baptist kept sending his disciples, along with various Pharisees, to question His ministry. They wanted an explanation of both His works and actions.
In Matthew 11:1-6 it says, "Now it came to pass, when Jesus finished commanding His twelve disciples, that He departed from there to teach and to preach in their cities... (more)
Upon arising the other morning, the Lord spoke to me and said, "There is a Credence Clearwater Revival just ahead and is happening now!" He then told me to look these words up and share what He is about to do!
CREDENCE: Credence means truthfulness, or believability.
There is a revival of truthfulness coming to America and the world. It is going to be made apparent the difference between the truth tellers and those who only speak from their own hearts. God is going to separate the real from the fake and is doing this in the earth right now!
There is a great uncovering of the lies that we have been told and some of the truths that we have held dear in our country. He is going to shake all that can be shaken so that which remains will be the unadulterated truth of God's Word, and He is about to show forth who His true prophets are... (more)
From anonymous writer in Hong Kong - name withheld to protect identity:
This is a vital moment and time for our city, Hong Kong. Since June 9th our city has been marked with protests and, in recent weeks, those protests have turned violent. Corruption has been exposed to the whole world. It is a time when everything is polarized and, even within families, people are split and at odds with each other. The global economy has even been impacted. As things begin to come to a head, there is a looming sense of fear over what will happen next that has settled over the city.
As followers of Jesus, it is vitally important we do not respond with fear of what seems to be impending upon our city, but rather it is in this time that we are called to pray and discover God's heart for our city and His heartbeat for everyone within our city, and find ways to partner with Him. It's time we speak boldly what He is saying and proclaim it loudly to any who have an ear to hear... (more)
I realized at the end of July that I had been having a lot of mountain dreams; I was planting flags on mountains, exploring mountain tops and saw myself skipping over the mountains. I was in meetings at the time, so I never really stopped to realize that I was actually traveling through the mountains. So of course, my word this month has do with mountains.
In one dream I heard the Lord say, "It's time to go up to the mountain." Then in another I heard, "It's time to take the mountains. It's time to go up and conquer!"
Mountains can mean different things in the Scriptures, but generally we associate mountains with worship and prayer. Remember the woman at the well in John 4? She asked Jesus where He thought men should go to worship. Jesus told her that it wasn't the place that we worship, but it's who we worship... (more)
