The Antonymn

The Antonymn

Praise the Lord, Beloved of God!


A few weeks ago the Lord dropped in my spirit that there is to be" no more lack" in my life in any area. I happily received that word, and I purposed not to look at things in the natural. The house of the righteous shall stand! How he brings that word to pass is up to Him. Now we know when one receives a word like that : abundance, more than enough, and there is a witness in one's spirit, here comes the enemy with an antonymn to the word one has received. He is going to say the exact opposite of what God has said. Why? Because he is a liar and the father of lies. God says you are healed, the enemy lies, and brings doubt. Father says move forward, the enemy throws up obstacles. Abba says the door is open, that old fabulist sets a trap door. " Did God really say...?", he asks. He is a liar, but God is not a man that He should lie! That is the one thing He cannot do.

Titus 1:2

In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;


He never lies! And so, as the enemy is want to do, he has attacked me in my finances. When it rains it pours! But God is so faithful. But God! He is a safety net under us. There are things I need to take care of in my household. The enemy comes with the antonymn for my tithe: "Just put it off and you can give it NEXT month." Oh, no you do NOT! I am not going to tie God's hands where He cannot move on my behalf! Please believe I happily tithed sunday without a second thought. Those funds are NOT mine. In God's economy, the tithe belongs to Him. It is my reasonable service and a part of my helping to build the kingdom. You, too!

Nehemiah 10:39 (English Standard Version)

For the people of Israel and the sons of Levi shall bring the contribution of grain, wine, and oil to the chambers, where the vessels of the sanctuary are, as well as the priests who minister, and the gatekeepers and the singers.

"We will not neglect the house of our God."

I am still required to obey and bring my "tithes and offerings into the storehose" (Malachi 3:10). When we take care of Abba's business and obey in faith, He takes care of OUR business! The righteous do not go begging for bread, or anything else. Declare the Word! And believe it. We are not deceived by the enemy's devices. I know what God dropped in my spirit and I believe God! Here is a thing I have learned: The enemy is going to operate in just the opposite of what God says, and what He wants to do for, and through Us. We must be wise. So because of the attack on my finances, I am even more assured and certain I heard God. No more lack! Glory to God!! This attack is an antonymn, polar opposite of what God has purposed for me. The enemy is a liar trying to steal my blessing and the place in which God would have me to walk. I am excited! I have food,clothing, and shelter and if I have one penny, I have money! I told God this morning I do not have a "Plan B". He is my "Plan A", as in Alpha and Omega! I am totally dependant on HIM. I do not have any strategies to work things out. "I do not borrow, I lend." I reminded Him it is in his Word. I must approach this with a Kingdom mindset, perspective, and tenacity. WE must walk in that God-given authority! I do not want to worry, I do not want to feel angst. Just...No! I will keep my eyes on God! The focus here is not on me. I am just giving a current testimony and I hope it encourages someone in whatever your temporary circumstances may be. Do not buy into the into the enemy's lies. Know that, actually, it is completely opposite of what you are facing. See the antonymn of the situation. I know funds are on the way! It has nothing to do with my bank account. I have been in this place before, and God has never let me down. NEVER. Never, ever! I am smiling as I type because "no lack" is surely a reality, hence, this attack. I will not speak against what Abba said to me in prayer. "No lack in ANY area." Any area! Are you kidding me? Yes Lord, I am warring over THAT word! What has Abba Father told you? Is an antonymn in effect? It is just the opposite of what you are experiencing in the natural. You must be somebody in the kingdom! That word is right around the corner about to be fulfilled! Be encouraged. I celebrate you, Beloved! I choose to celebrate right in the face of the "antonymn" situation. Let's celebrate together. Discern the reality of that word coming to pass. You know what God said! Keep speaking it into the atmosphere. And may God shut the mouth of the enemy! Stay kingdom-minded, dear ones. Amen.


EMPOWERED

Empowered


1 Corinthians 4:20

For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power


Spiritual blessing, favor and peace be yours from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ,

This is my first post of the new year! I received a text message from a dear friend on the 1st that closed, “Be empowered to prosper!” “Amen”, I responded. “Even as my soul prospers.” Our souls prosper because they are empowered by the Holy Spirit. We are Spirit-filled Christians, baptized in the Holy Spirit. Any power you and I have as Kingdom people, comes from Him!


Acts 1:8

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, andyou will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."


2 Timothy 1:7

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.


I am not speaking of what the world considers “power”. I recently read an interesting anecdote about the famous mystery writer, Agatha Christie. It seems she received ideas for her mysteries from different people she met in various walks of life. One doctor she met used to carry around a piece of deadly poison from the South American rain forest. When asked why by Agatha Christie he said,” I like the feeling of power it gives me.” He had a "sense" of power, a physical sensation , a “feeling”, really, of power. The stimulus, the poison, was subjective and he had a mental awareness of power. The so called power he thought he had was in the flesh. The Bible tells us to put no confidence in the flesh, but have confidence before God! ( Phil 3:3: I John 3:21). That doctor's fleshly confidence was because of the potential to cause death. OUR confidence is spiritual and is an actuality that means life! This is the confidence we have, we can approach God, ask of Him, be in relationship with Him. Hebrews 10:35 admonishes us:

"Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence, for it carries a great and glorious compensation of reward." Jesus said the kingdom of God is within us and it is not in word, but in power! ( Luke 17:21; I Cor 4:20). That is power with God and that is a great reward. The down payment of the life of God within, from which we are to live and minister to others. The power we have is life in and through Christ Jesus. I like the power God has given!


2 Peter 1:3

Divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence,


Power that pertains and speaks not to death, but life is what I am talking about. We are empowered, we must only have faith to know and obtain from the Kingdom within, in the Name of Jesus. It not a pocket-sized pseudo-power like the doctor spoke of!


1 Corinthians 4:19-20

But I will come to you [and] shortly, if the Lord is willing, and then I will perceive and understand not what the talk of these puffed up and arrogant spirits amount to, but their force (the moral power and excellence of soul they really possess).

For the kingdom of God consists of and is based on not talk but power (moral power and excellence of soul).


With excellence of soul, a clear conscious toward God, and the boldness and confidence to approach Him and ask what we will, expecting to receive;the Power of God is manifested and demonstrated. My God, that is so very needed today! People need to experience the genuine power and Presence of God! The Power of God unto salvation, the gospel. Let us be aware of the power we carry by the Spirit of God, and be led by His Spirit to release that power to souls that are in need of the life of God. Glory to God! Operate out of the Kingdom of God within you!


Amen, be empowered.




God's Mercies Are New EVERY Morning

Posted on January 16, 2018 at 10:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Beloved,



It has been a glorious day, a glorious weekend. Productive and meaningful. That is a good thing! I purpose to stay in the moment. Tomorrow will take care of itself. I can still say God's mercies are new every morning expecting an even BETTER day tomorrow! That passage of scripture is not just for confessing after having a challenging day. Let's prophesy to our future! Goodness and mercy are following us! ( Psalm 23) His angels are literally encamped 'round about us.(Psalm 51) God CARES for us. While this weekend has been great, we are going from glory to glory! Tomorrow....this whole WEEK will be of a Kingdom Kind. Make that your prophetic confession. Sometimes it is a CHOICE how we feel and walk out our day. It is just as easy to choose to be joyous as it is to be in the dumps! The joy of the Lord is a fruit of the spirit and your strength. Share your praise reports no matter WHEN you read this post. It is no accident you are reading it NOW and there is no distance in the Spirit.

Blessings!



Despise Not Small Beginnings

Posted on January 16, 2018 at 10:15 AM Comments comments (0)

I am checking the "Insights Blog "frequently. No one has responded as of yet, ( except little ol' me;0). But I am okay with that. Everything here is so new. Still I must handle this website as though there IS a comment or two,( or more!) to which I must respond. Our whole Christian walk, especially those called to ministry is a process. One must start somewhere, correct? There must be a beginning to things. I just must know I am being led of God. And I beleive I am. I am enjoying what Abba is doing. This is fun! I will look at this as practice. And I will not despise "small beginnings".

Interesting Sayings

Posted on January 16, 2018 at 10:15 AM Comments comments (0)

I ran across two interesting little sayings. One is more like a little poem:

"The main thing, is to keep the main thing, the MAIN thing."

******************************

If We Meet

If we meet and you forget me,

you have lost nothing.

If you meet Jesus Christ and you forget Him,

you have lost everything.

To my way of thinking, beloved, Jesus is "the main thing." Keep Him first in your lives.

DOING His Good Pleasure

Posted on January 16, 2018 at 10:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Praise Him! And welcome to the first blog entry for Arnion Ministries. The title is apt, because this blog and website are both new, and I pray that I am following Father's will and doing His "good pleasure". I am in a situation where I am learning as I go, so please bear with me as navigate, one friend called "uncharted waters". I do believe this is a branch of ministry. It is my hope that we can share, reflect, ponder, encourage and learn from one another in a Godly atmosphere on this blog. This is a very exciting time! Yes, Christianity and ministry can be exciting. Now. Please share, if you will, about a time when you stepped out on the waters, following God into new arenas, but sure you where he was working in you both to will and do HIS good pleasure. Or maybe you are mid-stream, as i am with this website. Share with us.
