WHEN U’RE NOT FEELING IT!!!!!

MLK Jr. Quote

MLK Jr. Quote

“You wanna be ok with it…., but your heart, u really ain’t feeling it”. So sure many of us feel that way. Those feelings happen or may manifest often or very seldom, but we all know, or have experienced feelings such as those…. Now let me give you some examples of exactly what’s it means when u are not feeling it. (liking it)

1. When it’s time, we vote for a new president. OK now, we see the list of possible candidates, and you say to yourself, I know there should be someone better. (we ain’t feeling it)

2.  You watch the news everyday, you wanna watch it to keep up with the latest happenings, but after you saw it, you say to yourself, I would have felt better, if I had not watched it. (we ain’t feeling it)

3. The Supreme court finalizes laws of the land, but a lot of the laws they confirm, do not sit well with a lot of people. (so one again we really ain’t feeling it)

4. Politicians criticize each other, we have to see, hear, and be subjected to all this. (we ain’t feeling it)

5. People or groups want to subject their ideas, lifestyles or force their ideologies upon us. (we ain’t feeling it)

6. We live a long time and you see changes happening in the world today, that you never would have imagined. (we ain’t feeling it)

7.  When you know you are right about something, but the world society is telling you, u are wrong. (u ain’t feeling it)

8. You just got a pay check on your job, but the pay’s not matching your labor. (u ain’t feeling it)

9. When you’re going through something, and you heart is breaking, and the people around u are telling u, you’ll be ok. (u ain’t feeling it)

10.  You’re paying twice for a house that should have been paid off 30 years ago. (u ain’t feeling it)

11.  Police brutality when u know it does not have to be. (we ain’t feeling it)

12. The rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer(we ain’t feeling it)

13. Being lied to when u know it ain’t true. (we ain’t feeling it)

Well that was just to give you an idea of what I am talking about…..

So now, when people are not really, in agreement with something, but just go along with it all because they feel that is the normal thing to then; then that would be called, “going along to get along.”  Yes, sometimes we’ll just agree with a situation as not to cause a distraction, be offensive or better yet, not to be called the distraction. Because no one wants to be the odd ball, or the subject of confusion, or the sore thumb, or the troublemaker, of the problem, or the nutty one, or the troublemaker or u’re angry; so we go along to get along.

Another example: “Say for instance a group of policemen, driving along mining their own business see a man running down the road. Now the cops just had a big lunch, a few laughs and are really feeling good. As they drive along,  two of the cops in the car said” I wonder why he’s running, then another said, oh, it’s probably nothing.  Then the third cops says let’s check it out. So they stop, and ask the man to stop running, he did. One cop says where u going in such a hurry? The man says home. The next cop says why in such a hurry? He says my sister called and said, my mom is sick. So I’m running  to hurry home. Ok the other cops say, can’t u tell he lying, look at the sweat on his face. Then another cop say yeah. Then the second cop says let’s search him, they do and find anything.  Ok you’re good u can go. Then one cops says let’s go. But then the third cops says, not before I give him a reminder, and the fourth cop says a reminder, of what?  So that cop hits the man with his stick, twice. Then they laugh, but the first cop , says man you should not have hit him like that. The other cops say why? He said because the man did nothing, he was just trying to get home to his sick mom. But he did not report it? Why? Going along with the wrong to get along with his fellow cops. A few days later, the good cop saw the man that was running down the road. He stopped and the man said, my mom made it to the hospital just in time, but when I got home I passed out, and had to be rushed to the doctor, they said I had a small concussion and this bruise will take months to heal.” All that for what? Why no one stood up, well it’s called going along to get along or is it called fear?

So we often go along with situations to be able to fit in, or liked by others. But in our hearts, we know we ain’t feeling it.

So is that right? Is it wholesome? Is it good? Is it Honest? Is it appropriate? Is it merited? Is it moral? Is it conscientious?  Well I guess if u are the kind of person that is passive and wants to get along with everybody, its ok. But if u have a problem with going along to get along, then u get restless in your seat. U get a sense of  “o man,” how can people be so complacent? So un concerned or un motivated to do something. But in all reality say something. Write a blog, post to Facebook,  or some of the others, things people do, and u don’t have to be violent about it either. But don’t do nothing.

Ok, example: If Martin Luther King Jr. had of just watched events unfold on TV or radio, and did nothing we would probably still be riding on the back of the bus, or not being able to eat in certain places. Not be able to attend the schools we would like. Buy homes in neighborhoods u like. You get the point.

Now to be more realistic, just say for instance: Main Point  Jesus decided to not go to the Cross! Let’s just say he said, I’m not gonna heal the sick, raise the dead, give sight to the blind, feed the hungry, you get the idea. What a mess we would be in. If Jesus had of just said to His disciples, lets just sit back and watch how thing unfold. Lets just see how they all will turn on each other, and do horrible things to each other. What if Jesus said, they are getting just what they deserve. What if Jesus just went along with the crowd to get along with everybody? What if He decided not to come to earth in the first place? Well  he never would have been crucified. So I said that to say this: When u stand up for something and it’s not popular with your group, then u need to get another group. Why go along with something when u ain’t feeling it! There are always choices to be made: SO MAKE THEM! Lose a few friends…. Lose a few buddies… Lose, lose, lose but in the end u really GAIN!

YOU CAN’T CARE WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT U, YOU CAN’T CARE WHAT PEOPLE SAY TO U. YOU CAN’T WORRY ABOUT FRIENDS, BECAUSE U REALLY DON’T HAVE ANY ANYWAY.

Just MAKE SURE THAT THE PERSON, U DO CARE ABOUT IS; “WHAT WOULD JESUS SAY TO ME, IF I STAND FOR WHAT IS RIGHT AND MORAL….. What would He say, to me if I stood up in His shoes or sandals, and spoke like He spoke…. That is hard for some of us and comes naturally for some, but in the long run u can always live with knowing that u did something that will benefit generations to come.

Oh by the way everybody does not like you,  so stop, right now thinking that they do, some will never like you and no matter what you do or say  you can never convince them to like you.  Some might have liked u at first but after u stood up and spoke up they will no longer like u. SO, oh well its part of the territory and expect that.

From my reading the Bible I learn to live for God, not man, man can hurt you and make u feel so bad about yourself and the things you stand up for. So stand in Christ Jesus and when you do, it really does not matter how others feel about you. That is what I especially like about Jesus, he did not care if He was liked; although he asked his disciples, who do they say I am, St. Mark 8:v.27 Jesus went out, along with His disciples, to the villages of Caesarea Philippi; and on the way He questioned His disciples, saying to them, “Who do people say that I am?” 28 They told Him, saying, “John the Baptist; and others say Elijah; but others, one of the prophets.”… So when he turned around and asked his disciples who do you think I am, Peter answered, You are the Christ. [The scripture says “He said to them, But who do you say that I am?] So I assume, what He asked to them all, who do you say I am, He was asking the question to all of His disciples, but Peter answered first, so the Bible does not say if the rest was trying to answer before Peter beat them to it or if the other let Peter answer for them. It also does not say if  the others did say something at all. But anyway let’s just say only Peter really knew who Jesus was. Then you mean to tell me all his disciples his closest group, did not really know who he was? Then if that be the case your friends don’t really know you either.

That passage gave me, a great insight “people don’t know u but assume that u what are what they perceive u top be!!!! So if they perceive you to be that, then to them you are that! SO do what you have to do to please Jesus, because I will tell you right now u will never ever please everybody. So when you ain’t feeling something, then do something about it!!! Jesus did….

The Beginning of…

the Bible

In the beginning…

The very first three words in the Holy Bible, “In the beginning”. That short phrase has so much power within it.

I looked at the words over and over. I say them over and over to myself, “In the beginning”. The words of God, goes on to say, “God created the heaven and the earth”. But it’s the words “in the beginning, they have me in awe. In the beginning of time, after everything….  then, God created Adam and Eve.

“In the beginning”. It means something; matter of fact it means a lot. God could have said, “first or before, or even I created it all. He could have even said, I created man last or the heaven and earth was the first thing, but instead He said, “in the beginning”. We all have a beginning. What is a beginning? Lots of things have a beginning, all things have a beginning. All things have an origin.

Beginning is life.

The beginning of a life.

The beginning of you.

The beginning of self.

The beginning of growth.

The beginning of understanding.

The beginning of – No.

The beginning of – Yes.

The Beginning of your life, the Bible is the beginning of your life. It has your story; it has my story and everybody else’s story. But the story of your life is just the beginning, because it will continue, long after the fact… The Bible has you covered. There has to be a beginning for everything that ever existed on earth and in the earth. There is only one of us, but we have several beginnings. When I say several beginnings, I mean several beginnings which fit into your one life. We only have but, one life but many beginnings. Many beginnings to self. Self is you and all of you. No one else can be you, or live your life for you, as you. It has to be you and only you. Because of the things and circumstances; we may often wish we could live another life or become someone else, but we can’t. Our beginning is ours, and so is our end. Say for instance when we mess up, or something happens we wish we could change, or could have changed. We can’t. Say for instance you caused a serious car wreck and someone was killed, don’t you wish you could have changed the situation? You Can’t. You may have said something hurtful, accidentally did something wrong or made a terrible mistake, and could you take it back? No. You may say if only I had…

If I, just could have…

That all goes back to the beginning.

“In the beginning”.

Just think. For example, when Eve ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. For her, that was her beginning of a sad and fearful life. The beginning of emotions, the beginning of confusion, the beginning of sadness, the beginning of problems and so on. If she had only obeyed the instructions of God.  I can imagine how she must have felt; I can even imagine how Adam must have felt. The regret, the pain, heartache, the grief, the isolation, the loss of their best friend, their Daddy’s trust.

But in this life, beginnings can good for some and bad for others. The beginnings of mistakes. The beginnings of triumphs. The beginnings of victories, and failings. When God created Adam and Eve, I am sure He knew the possibilities of failures on the part of Adam and Eve. He created them to be prefect. When the beginning of something awful creeps in, then there is a possibility that everything can become spoiled or rotten. It can be considered messed up or sinful. There can be a beginning to sin in our lives. Something sinful happened. That’s the beginning of sin for each of us. There’s always a beginning to something, and for something,in this life we live.

Was that sin when Eve did the thing she was not supposed to do? Yes. When we do things we are not supposed to do, is it sin or just bad judgment? Both.

Can sin be both bad and good? No. Sin is sin and God hates sin!

But that brings into the subject another question; what is your story?  As you begin to read the Bible and share in the stories of all the people in the Bible, you will begin to find yourself. If you read long enough you will find yourself, and your beginning.  You will identify with the person in the Bible that has your attitude, your thought process, and your willingness to obey or not obey. You will find reminders of your life. Reminders of the life of someone you know. But no matter what you are there.

God created one of all. But we all have sinned in one form or another. The only difference is that, some of us may know how to control it better than the other person. Like King Solomon said,  “That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God require that which is past”.  That means nothing is new to begin with. God will require an answer from you for whatever reason, concerning your sins.

Let us understand that the beginning of sin is the beginning of our demise. We accept life as it is, never to correct our sinful self. We go on each day living in sin, never to repent, but it will stop one day. That will be the beginning of our end.  We must make a new beginning to please God. Why wouldn’t you want too? There is always someone whom we seek to please; husband, wife, children, boss, whomever we love the most or whoever we believe to be in authority. We seek to please. But God is the universes’ Authority. He is the Ultimate Authority, some choose to believe that, and some choose not to believer that.

You are always given the chance to begin to live for Christ, the Master behind the Beginning! God, Jehovah in the beginning, also gave us birth of a righteous mind to understand all that is good and pleasing to Him. It is time we use our minds and bodies to serve Him in all His glory. He gave it all to us first, so why not give it all back to Him. The best thing in this life He gave to us. So now give it back. Show God we appreciate His mercy and grace.

One thing God gave Adam and Eve was credit for cursing us all. He let us know the reason for all the troubles we have. God even warned us about satan , and how he convinced Eve to sin. God has no secrets and tricks to cause us to sin. We do it all by ourselves as Eve did. We like it because as Eve did, she saw…

“She saw that the tree was good for food and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit, thereof and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.”

This is what that passage tells me; in the beginning her eyes “saw” that the tree was food, food is something we need to live. But we don’t need sin to live. Plus the food looked good to her eyes, something she desired to have such as a fine piece of jewelry. Have you ever eaten something that just melted in your mouth, a good piece of chocolate? A tree to be desired, something to be desired, such as a million dollars. Did she know the meaning of the word wise or did satan plant the thought in her mind when he told her, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. Did that make her want it more? So after he told her that; she ate!!! Did satan make her eat or was it something she wanted to do all along?

I’ll tell you what; satan can’t make you do something you do not want to really do! So she wanted to eat it and she did, even causing Adam to eat of the tree too.

In your mind’s eye what do you see? A woman ready to sin. A woman ready to cause someone else to sin.  A woman who did not want to do what was good and right. That was a new beginning for the both of them. For us too. One they wish they could have taken back a trillion times. God sent them both away from Him. One day we will stand before God, and some will be turned away from Him also. Don’t play around with satan in the garden you will pay! Adam and Eve were given the opportunity to obey His law and His command, not to eat of the tree.

So I ask you now – Get your beginning right. Right now! Try by beginning to understand Christ God Our King.  Your beginning started a very long time ago, In Christ Our Lord and Creator.

When it just ain’t right…..

"Whatever You Do"

I have been gone too long, that’s because I try not to write, but then,  I guess my voice is all I really own… So I must write; if I have nothing else, I have a voice… My voice is me and it tells my stories. My Narratives, Stories and Parables and all my other stuff, I write. My stories are warnings. They are prophecy. They are especially truths… My writings. Prophecies, Narratives and Truths and everything in-between, are all born in a small spot within my mind, a place where no one can enter unless I let them, a small spot that grows into a small black hole, with lots of energy, spitting out words for all, that is given from Yeshua Our MESSIAH. The words that are written in conversations are sometimes written when I’m depressed or sometimes when I feel lonely, but mostly when I’m told to by my Father in Heaven. I probably seem strange to you that is because I am, BUT I’M REALLY NOT. I see things that others don’t, and I feel things that others don’t. Sometimes I hate it, sometimes I don’t. That’s just me. But I find my rest in just waiting till the days and years usher in the second coming, but I probably won’t be here, but biting the dust somewhere, or should I say dead and buried. I am in such a hurry, I guess all I mostly do is try not to worry. Why? I just don’t like the state of things. I don’t like the disrespect FROM PEOPLE, for Yeshua our King and Messiah. I don’t like the fact that people are demonstrating no sense of morals nor honor for Our Lord. I hate the state of things. Every day I see the Bible fulfilling itself, just as if you are unrolling a strand of thread from a spooler. It saddens me, how sinful and more sinful we are. All of us act as if we will not have to face Yeshua our LORD one day. I often sit and daydream about what it will look like on the great judgment day. I can just see and feel everything around me. I see all the people crying……..pleading, and begging, but it still didn’t change anything. I can see all the Christians, Saints, Sinners and Angels. I can see the sorrow, I can even smell it. I can feel the pain, and it tears my heart to pieces. I cry out Lord Father, please. But that changes nothing. He said the people didn’t believe, they never have and never will. They never even tried to change, but the only change they did was for the worst. No one took me seriously. I was one page in a book to them. A page they never tried read. I gave the Bible, to all of you, to learn of my ways. I gave you all the words to live by. I taught you and offered to train all the people of the Nations, but who heeded my Words. Only a few, compared to the masses. I gave all the people of the world all of ME. I spoke to all of you through circumstance, and pain. That didn’t even get their attention for very long. I did some terrible things to all the people of the world, but you all asked for it. I have turned my back to your pain and injustices, because there was not enough of the people in the world who called on ME, yes they called, but not to repent, only in despair! HE said, “You all call on ME, just as quick as you all forget ME! But as He spoke to me, HE was so hurt. Yes I am the Almighty, the All Powerful, The Only Creator, The Lord God Most High, The Master Planner, The Only One, The Only Hope, The Sure One, The Heavenly Prince of Peace, The First Father, The First Son, The Only Righteousness, The Only Truth, The Only Way, The Secret, The Matheia, The Sucray, The Known, but He just kept on naming His Names, many I had no idea of the meaning, not even the word itself. But He was so amazed at the many masses that had little regards for Him! But He was not surprised, for He already knew! He never stopped loving us, but as God our Father has HIS job to do!  He said we all knew, there will be no excuses accepted, nor any payoffs. I asked Him, Lord why, He said no man should be surprised, by these events that you see before you. I have told it for years and centuries. No one should be unprepared. I told you to prepare for things to come, but no one did. I didn’t care about preparing for earthly thing, I meant for things unseen. You all knew. The Bible spoke it out loudly and plainly. YOU KNEW!!

I say this to myself and to you; my readers!
Every where I look, everything I see, everything I hear, everywhere I go, everything I know, everything I do has pain. I hurt for us. I hurt for Christ, because he died and shed His Blood for us, I hurt for the people. I hurt for the presence of Yeshua our God. I hurt to see what the world I live in is becoming. I hurt because evil is widespread, evil is in my face, evil is in my house, evil is on my street, evil is around the corner, evil is in neighborhood, evil is on the TV, evil on the radio, evil in the church, evil is near me, evil is at the corner store, evil is written on the pages of my bills, when I see a rate increase, every month. Evil in the banks, evil in the air, evil in my food, I was eating some packaged greens and bit down on a grasshopper. Evil in the conversation, in the thoughts, even in my walk. Evil in my friends, IN me, and even MY HABITS. All evil is from and owed by satan. I never liked him, and never will. He has caused me just too much pain. I’ve never liked greed. I think and know if you are you greedy then you will do almost anything to get exactly the things you want. So that is the reason for some of my pain. You see when I have to pay for the greed of others, that bothers me. Like the utility companies and the banks, insurance companies, all wanting the little money I got, just to pay for their selfish needs. It (GREED)disagrees with me. Yes evil is present in all things and everything thing. But MY God Yeshua is near me also. He is saving me from all evil thing and gives me the strength to bear. I trust God Yeshua to squash the evil. If he does not then it is in His plan. Evil has a great big smile, with satans name on it. But the smile of Lord Yeshua is even bigger!!! Yes satan can hurt me and even defeat me, but he cannot defeat My Father, Yeshua. I ask God to squash the evil. Yes I hurt and even have to cry, but I also remember who is greater than I, MY FATHER and LORD YESHUA. My life has not been easy no not at all, I have almost felt like I had lost my mind, but Lord Yeshua stepped in and shook me back to my senses. Yes He LOVES ME, and yes I forget that sometimes. But He reminds me because he tells me I’m His own and that He knows my Name. Yes life is trying its best to beat most of us down, but we have to remember where we all came, who our Father is, and press on towards the mark. Yes He love us when nobody else does. He gives to us when nobody else won’t.

Evil in the courtrooms, brought there by the judges, and even the people in the jury. But I can’t forget the criminals too. I use to tell my sons, if people stop getting in trouble, then the criminals courts, jails and prisons would go out of business. But they didn’t listen. It’s in the prisons, brought there some or most of the inmates, but has it ugly spirits that lives and dwells there in all the people who run them and guard them. He keeps me, because I often forget how to keep my self sometimes. Yes I cry, cry and cry, but He is the only one that wipes my tears away. He knows my pain, and He also knows about my gains. Yes tonight I write because my heart is so heavy. It hurts for me and it hurts for you!
It hurts me to see the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, but who cares… it’s real and it’s happening; search the Bible My Lord and God Yeshua help us. It hurts me to see people suffer, for others mistakes, it hurts me to see how so many of us allow satan to use us to make life so miserable for others. Yes I have made many mistakes and is still living to regret some of them. Still making mistake, but must pray to ask Lord Yeshua to help me and forgive me.

So I say, when it ain’t right….!I think too much, until sometimes my head hurts, I search to find the reason behind everything, but the Bible has already given me the answer. So the only thing left for me to do is, know the Words of the Lord like I know my name and birthday. Because the Words of the Lord fights all my battles, it fights evil, and even greed. May God Yeshua bless His. May the Lord Yeshua save us and hide us from the evil ones. From the greedy ones, from the selfish ones, from the mean-spirited ones, FROM THE SATANIC ONES.
Yes God makes the world go round, listen to the song by The Stylistics – “People Make The World Go Round” no, God makes the world go round but it’s the demonic spirit in people, that is Tearing It Down. Greed is tearing it down… Satan knows God has created this world for us, so he is the anxious leader and instigator in destroying it. But God….    Yeah we have forgotten that God is Everything and Everything is Him, and that He made EVERYTHING, for the good of all, but the demonic spirit in man, has helped to make all things bad. But God ain’t going for that… now is HE?

When it just ain’t right..
But when it just ain’t right, all I got is my voice. My battles are too big for me, but I must tell them it to others. My life is temporary and one day I will leave this place. So if my sons live maybe they will read them. Or my grandchildren, or theirs.
I think about all the things that ARE hurtful to Our Lord Jesu Christ, just stop and look at all the things we have done against God. We need to start thinking about all the things we’ve done that just ain’t right. All people, especially Christians. But I am so glad Yeshua Our Messiah and Protector has warned us of the days such as these. He also gave us a way out and solution. He asked us to PRAY and REPENT, so that HE COULD HEAL ALL LANDS.
If we would pray and repent sincerely he could perform a mighty works. If we pray and repent He could unleash legions of Angels on our behalf. If we pray and repent he would save us. If we pray and repent He was rush and perform miracles for us so that things would work in our favor. If we pray and repent HE would show awesome favor towards His children. IF WE PRAY AND REPENT, HE WOULD FILL THE CHURCHES WITH REPENTING RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE. WITH LOVE FOR THEIR FELLOW MEN / NEIGHBORS. If we would pray and repent He would rebuke those devourer, (in other words the greedy). But I’ll tell you this it just ain’t right and it won’t be until Our Father and Messiah comes back to make right, all the wrongs!!!!!!!

VISION, VALOR, AND VICTORY

King Hezekiah was a man who did what was good, right, and truthful. Everything he was involved in was carried out with all his heart; and he prospered.

“This Hezekiah did throughout all Judah, and he did what was good and right and true before the Lord his God. And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, in the law and in the commandment, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart. So he prospered.” [2 Chronicles 31:20-21]

All people should live a life that is right before God, but leaders especially have a greater responsibility to do so. With that responsibility comes an attendant blessing. When you are in the arena, you will be shot at. If you want to be used greatly by God, then make your mind up ahead of time that you are NOT going to quit, and you are NOT going to run away!

If you quit, you can’t win. But if you don’t quit, you’ll win!

This doesn’t mean that you will have the strength or wisdom in your self; but you are determined to stand in faith, believing and drawing upon the resources of God.

The Assyrians were a cruel and treacherous military force. They resorted to terrible means of torture and were also a formidable foe. After Hezekiah’s deeds of faithfulness, Sennacherib king of Assyria came and entered Judah. He encamped against the fortified cities, thinking to win them over to himself.

When Hezekiah saw this, and realized that Sennacherib’s purpose was to make war against Jerusalem, he gathered his leaders and commanders together and encouraged them.

“Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid nor dismayed before the king of Assyria, nor before all the multitude that is before him: for there are more with us than with him. With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God, to help us and to fight our battles.” And the people were strengthened by the words of Hezekiah king of Judah. [2 Chronicles 32:7-8]

Because of the impending danger, King Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah prayed and cried out to heaven. Then the Lord sent an angel who cut down every mighty man of valor, every leader, and every captain in the army of Assyria. So the King of Assyria returned shamefaced to his own land, and was killed by his own family.

“And it came to pass on a certain night that the angel of the Lord went out, and killed in the camp of the Assyrians 185,000 men; and when people arose early in the morning, there were the corpses – all dead.” [2 Kings 19:35; 2 Chronicles 32:9-23]

God still uses angels today. Psalm 34:7 tells us “The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.” Surely there are many times the angels deliver and protect us and we don’t even know about it. But, in addition – like many of the promises of God – we need to KNOW God’s Word so we can ACCESS God’s resources. We need to appropriate them by faith. We need to BELIEVE and PRAY as Hezekiah did. Vision begins with a purpose … and that purpose is to SEE the dream become a reality! There are five (5) basic steps in this process:

1. Dream;

2. Plan;

3. Preparation;

4. Logistics; and,

5. Action.

In action – and sometimes in the first four steps above – we engage the adversary as Hezekiah did. We implement our plans and put in place those things and people we have prepared, and that the Lord has assigned to us. Then we utilize the resources within our command to take action. Gideon had some clay vessels and candles. Moses had a rod. What is it that God has placed in your hand? What are those things you will BELIEVE God to bring into your access? It is your duty to use your faith. Faith is your servant. Read Luke 17:5-10.

Many times it is the thing that is in our hand or our heart that is our greatest resource. Are we turning the gifts of God away through unbelief? Are we afraid to leave our comfort zone? Use your faith – it is your DUTY to use it! I am reminded of a man and his wife who won $1,000,000 USD. When the authorized bearers of the prize tried to contact the couple, they were repeatedly turned away. The man and his wife would not answer their phone calls, or respond to their letters. They thought it was a joke. Finally, the man and his wife decided that they would at least see what the communication was about. The bearers of the prize were authorized one more time to attempt delivery to the man and his wife. They responded at the last minute.

How many times do we NOT receive God’s MIRACLES because of unbelief, or because of taking things for granted? We have the ability to DREAM and IMAGINE. We can establish a VISION and believe God for its fulfillment. When was the last time you dreamed for God? Imagine what your life and ministry would be like if the present hindrances were removed. One of the great promises in the Holy Bible is found in Jeremiah 33:3. “Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.”

In his book The Weight of Glory, C. S. Lewis said “Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak.” What can you IMAGINE or THINK? For what can you ASK God? “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” [Ephesians 3:20]

Once your dream is starting to take form – that is, when it becomes a reality – your VALOR will be tested: by God … and by the enemy of your soul: the devil. You will have to make up your mind ahead of time to be a champion, to be valiant. God is looking for champions like the people of faith who went before us, who “Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.” [Hebrews 11:34]

As you move out with the VISION, know that God has designed your VICTORY, but you have to have VALOR and stand in faith, calling upon Him for strength, wisdom, and MIRACLES. One thing that will help you is when you realize that God will use your enemy to help promote you: just like He did Pharaoh. God hardened Pharaoh’s heart so that the Lord would be SET APART in the eyes of the Egyptians. And so God will use the reality of your vision so that He might be set apart in the eyes of people in every nation, tribe, family, and language of the earth. [Exodus 9:13-16; Romans 9:17] Just as God used angelic ministry to help King Hezekiah and his people, so God will use the angels to help you, if you will PRAY and CRY OUT to Heaven like Hezekiah and Isaiah.

The magicians could not stand before Moses [Exodus 9:11], and neither will the enemy’s people stand before you. There will be a severance – a setting apart – for God’s servants. There is a difference for those anointed for ministry: not “haphazard” ministry, but ministry anointed through prayer, fasting, listening, and obedience! The Lord makes a difference between His people and the people of the enemy. Read prayerfully the following verses; they are God’s Word for you at this time:

Exodus 8:23;

Exodus 9:26;

Exodus 11:7

The two most important things you can do to enlarge your VISION and engage the enemy with VALOR are:

     1. Sit at the feet of Mashiach Jesus; and,

     2. Live holy.

Then your VICTORY will be assured!
