Greater Is He That Is In Us

Posted on January 18, 2018 at 12:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Grace, mercy and peace to you!,

It occurs to me that we are exactly one week away from a traditional fall holiday which focuses on ghouls, and death and monsters. Most folks don't think about the spirit and history behind the "holiday" or that is a high holy day for some who worship the adversary. It is just a day to dress up and pass out candy. Over the years I have seen more decorations of homes on the level of Christmas decorations, but the theme is death, not life. People love holidays and the excitemment of it all! It makes them feel somewhat happy, even alive. I realize we walk in the light we have. We have The Light, The Lord Jesus Christ, and greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the world! Jesus alone is the source of life! Let us be prayerful, and ready to tell others the reason for our Hope of Glory: Jesus. There are souls who simply do not know or understand the underlying spiritual implications of October 31st. We are called to intercede, stand in the gap for them .Most especially this week and as always:


Watch and pray!

Running Our Race

Running Our Race


Hebrews 12:1-2

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

Praise the Lord, people of God!

This passage of scripture was very recently discussed in a theology class I am taking.

The phrase that was pertinent to me had to do with running with endurance the race that is set before us. That is so where I am right now! What has God called me to do, (what has He called YOU to do?), and am I cooperating with God?? We are to be fixed having within our sights, what our goal is. And God almighty! Make sure the "goal" is from God. There is a peace that comes when one realizes that if he or she is in God's perfect will, Come what may, " I am right where God wants me. Things may seem odd, but God will get the glory out of this situation." The secret things belong to God, and He is handling every aspect of your surrendered and obedient life. What are you worried about? Run your race! A race is hard and a race requires something. There will be exertion, energy expended, you may think you have "hit the wall". It takes much endurance. But hold on, your second breath is coming! And that is a Divine Breath, another Helper: Holy Spirit. What a blessing to know we do not run our race on our own. I have been having thoughts of staying in my lane, doing what God has called me to do, in concert with Abba Father and others I am assigned to in co-ministry or to actually minister to. That's it! All else is in God's hands. He IS God and I am not. The freedom within the borders or parameters of entering into his rest is awesome. There is liberty within the boundaries of God and is Word! The more I obey Him, the more freedom I have. The goal and his will for our lives is in that Word! In order for the specifics of YOUR race which is set before you to come to pass, keep pressing into deeper,fuller relationship with Him, and obey Him. Keep the focus, run your race! We are not competing one with another. It's all we can do to keep ourselves on track by the Spirit of God! But we ARE a team. The Body of Christ, fitly joined together, each part working properly, builds the body up in love. So, as I do what I am to do for God and you do what YOU are to do for God, we all benefit. A built-up body runs a better "race" from the greeter at the door to the set-man or woman. And God gets the glory! Our scripture says this brings him joy and it is because it is a reflection of Him. God loves to see you run your God-ordained race! Let's purpose to do just that! God is cheering us on...... Amen.


A Balm in Gilead

A Balm in Gilead

Is there no balm in Gilead?

Is there no physician there?

Jeremiah 8:22


Praise the Lord, Beloved of God,


Sometimes it can all be a bit much, can't it? We live such busy, full lives! I have many irons in the fire and the only way to keep things going is to draw on the Lord. Take tonight for instance. There are a few deadlines approaching and they all seem to want to be the priority. I turned to the Lord, "God oil the gears of my being". I could feel a peace, a calm come over me. Abba soothed me! The "Balm in Gilead" I thought. A balm... it is a soothing, healing ointment. Just what was needed for the scratchy,inflamed places. For, you see, a balm soothes an irritation. I am all right now! I can handle it now! The Great Physician Himself is my medicine. We have to look to the hills from which comes our help. Our help comes from the Lord! Stop right in the midst of whatever ails you and get back centered in Him. Discern his hovering, peaceful Presence right now ! Soothing...healing, Amen. Thank God for Jesus! Verse 19 of Jeremiah asks," Is the LORD not in Zion? Is her King not in her?" Come on, Zion! You know God is with us. And He told me years ago, " I am in the details of your life". No matter how minute or inconsequential you may think it is, God cares for you! God is with you right where you are as the Balm in Gilead. KNOW that and be encouraged. Amen.


Soul peace,

Prophetess Vickie

Theme One: The Kingdom

Posted on January 17, 2018 at 5:00 PM Comments comments (0)


Theme One: The Kingdom

Kingdom greetings!

The sixth-grade reading anthology for my students is broken down into six themes. The stories within fit themes such as "Growing Up" or "Courage"( Those themes might be good for US, too). Abba seems to have a "theme" in effect. I have re-read some of my postings and teachings and I see a common thread of The Kingdom running through them. The Kingdom of God within and living/ministering out of the Kingdom is what Abba has been emphasizing. I wrote HE has put the emphasis on the Kingdom! Theme One: The Kingdom. When I teach my students I am either introducing a new skill/concept or they are expected to master a concept they were introduced to in a previous grade. I may have to re-teach, refresh, spiral back and/or practice said skill. But I am to keep at it, as are my students. No Child Left Behind. In a way, that is what Abba Father is doing as he sometimes has me re-visit The Kingdom in some way. He wants us to really get it in our spirits. You may be asking, "Why?". Because it is long past time to come out of spiritual elementary school and graduate into The Kingdom. Are we not ready to do the "greater works" promised us?


John 14:12

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greaterworks than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.


Abba Father has much to teach us but are we ready? He is nudging us onward to a deeper and fuller maturity:


Hebrews 6:1-3 (Amplified Bible)

 

THEREFORE LET us go on and get past the elementary stage in the teachings and doctrine of Christ (the Messiah), advancing steadily toward the completeness and perfection that belong to spiritual maturity. Let us not again be laying the foundation of repentance and abandonment of dead works (dead formalism) and of the faith [by which you turned] to God, With teachings about purifying, the laying on of hands, the resurrection from the dead, and eternal judgment and punishment. [These are all matters of which you should have been fully aware long, long ago.] If indeed God permits, we will [now] proceed [to advanced teaching].


I do not know about you, but I want God to advance and mature me! If The Teacher says review and re-teach, so be it. Abba Father is saying seek out The Kingdom! I am purposed to post or write out teachings that He drops in my spirit, and this is the theme. The Kingdom is foundational for what we are called to do in this world:


Luke 9:1 - 3

Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.

And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.


Let us obey God and pursue the release of The Kingdom of God within. In Jesus' name, Amen!


EXPELLED!

Posted on January 17, 2018 at 1:05 PM Comments comments (0)


While washing dishes this morning, I was listening to the Gospel of John. A passage jumped out at me and I made a statement based on this verse: John 12:31

Amplified Bible (AMP)

Now the judgment (crisis) of this world is coming on [sentence is now being passed on this world]. Now the ruler (evil genius, prince) of this world shall be cast out (expelled).

Expelled! As an educator I thought about when a student is expelled from school. To be expelled is to be cut off from membership or relations, to be removed from the regular program, to be discharged, evicted, ejected, compelled to leave. It is not business as usual, Beloved! Whatever the enemy's "regular program" is concerning you and me he is formerly discharged! " You are expelled!", I said. "Expelled from my life, expelled from my past expelled, from my future,expelled from my finances, my health, my thoughts...in every way you are expelled!" The enemy has been compelled to leave because of the victory we have through the Lord Jesus Christ. It is a completed work. It is done! And the enemy is removed, expelled. The expulsion committee is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, Glory to GOD! Halleleujah!! We have been given power from on high, Beloved of God! As Believers, it is long past time to walk in that power and the authority given us by God, in the name of Jesus. That is another upcoming teaching. But let me just encourage you today to know, understand and realize you do have authority to "drive out" the enemy as another version reads. When he tries to rear his head, take dominion, school the adversary: "Oh,no,no,no! No you do not. YOU are EXPELLED!" Amen and AMEN.

Love Never Fails

Posted on January 16, 2018 at 4:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Praise the Lord, Beloved of God,

And speaking of love I have been working on my love walk. The more love I have in me, the more of God I have in me. To bring God on the scene is to bring love on the scene; to bring love on the scene is to bring God on the scene, whatever it may be! So I have been listening to "The Love Chapter" of the Bible, I Corinthians 13 over and over and over again. It is the washing of the water of the Word that transforms us. And that transformation is a life-long process. We have none of us arrived. It is the engrafted Word of God that is able to save our souls. So I have been "washing" in an effort to love people with the God kind of love, agape love. As I listened to The Love Chapter quote the Apostle Paul, "Love never fails", I thought, "That is because God IS love!!" (I John 4:8) Love never fails because God never fails!

The LORD is righteous within her; He will do no injustice. Every morning He brings His justice to light; He does not fail, But the unjust knows no shame.                                                                                                                                                                         Zephaniah 3:5


I will say it again in the good king's english: He faileth not! Dear One, let that sink way down off in your spirit. All things are possible with God. WITH God. Be sure you are in concert with God, in harmony with God, in agreement with God and His washing Word. That same Word says our God, our God of love never fails. Amen.




Just Your Presence!

Posted on January 16, 2018 at 10:30 AM Comments comments (0)


Praise the Lord, Beloved!

I keep hearing, " We are a chosen generation!" in my spirit. And so we are. Chosen to be workers together with God, to be a light in this world, chosen to reconcile man back to Christ. Your very presence in your family, at your job, as you are out and about during your day, is to shine the Light of the Holy Spirit within. And you never know when someone sees the light. Yesterday, a co-worker commented on my response to a statement made during a staff meeting, "You just smiled and lit up!", she said. That dear one attributed the ''light" to the comment that was made. She said ," I just laughed at the way you smiled." This was hours later when she recounted her response. I knew she had seen the joy of the Lord! Sometimes, just one's smile can touch another's heart. If that smile has "light". And one never knows when someone is watching. Especially if they know you confess Christ as Lord and Savior. Let's be mindful of our testimony. For some, we are the only example of Christ-like character and demeanor they will ever see. Let His light shine through you. Amen.
