Awakening Intercession,A conversation (2)

I encourage you to read the first blog on Awakening intercession so you will have the foundation for understanding all future blogs on this subject. However, I will briefly share with you highlights of that blog. Intercession is the act of interceding for another person, a situation or circumstance. An intercessor is one who has responded to the call of God. Intercessors they are not easily offended. Intercessors guard their eye gates, ear and mouth gates. They do not gossip nor are they nosey people inquiring about everything in your life when you ask them to pray for you. Intercessors are constantly searching themselves to ensure their life is pleasing to the father, they keep a repenting spirit and a forgiving heart. They are totally dependent on God and believe 100 percent that the word of God is true and effective. Ok, you really must read the previous blog to get an understanding.

Continuing our conversation on the characteristic of an intercessor it is important for you to know and understand that when you accept this call to intercession that Satan will come after you. My mentor, Prophetess Rose Mary Blackwell, train me to know “You will be hit”. Any active soldier in a war can expect the enemy will attack them. You must know that God has given you weapons to fight against the enemy and that none of the weapons formed against you will prosper. Know your weapons i.e. word of God, Blood of Jesus, the sword, fasting and prayers,keys of heaven to bind and loose, allow and forbid,power of agreement, decree and declare etc. FULL POST

Awakening Intercession, A conversation

AWAKENING INTERCESSION

I had the pleasure of being divinely connected with a young woman, Prophetess Nori Moore of Awakening Intercession Ministry. This young lady invited me to connect with her for 3 weeks on Facebook Live to dialogue on Intercession. Well, the enemy fought us technically in every way with one problem after the other. But we preserve. This is an excerpt of information that was shared during those sessions. Because of the length of those sessions, I will post several blogs to cover the subjects. Subject matters: 101 Defining Intercession 2)Characteristic of an intercessor 3)Role of an intercessor and 4)Levels of intercession

Awakening intercession noun 1.an act or moment of becoming suddenly aware of something: 2)adjective 1.coming into existence or awareness: For example, you may fall asleep at a gathering and someone may play a trick on you while you are in that unconscious state, they may place a hat on your head, or paint your face etc. Because you of asleep, unconscious, you are unaware of what is happening. Upon awakening, you become conscious of what has been done. I am concerned that many intercessors seem to be sleep, unaware of what is going on around them. The goal of these dialogues will be to awaken the intercessor within you. FULL POST

A Rhema Word "Be Quiet"

As I sat down to write this blog the spirit of the living God rested on me and begin to speak. It is not often that I make a statement like this. I always seek the face of God and ask for the guidance of the Holy Spirit as I write but this encounter was different. The words were coming quickly and so clearly as if the Holy Spirit was standing next to me dictating what to write. So the first part of this writing will be just as the Holy Spirit gave it to me. The second part that I will share will be my reflections upon reviewing and meditating on what I had written.

I need you to join me in the throne room. I’m giving you an invitation. Did I not say come boldly to the throne of grace, that you may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need? You have so many questions. I have the answers. You ask me to speak but you are not listening. Even as you are asking me to speak your mind is racing to the next question.

Be quiet. Be still. Come into my presence and sit. Let me embrace you. Let me hold you. I am all that you need. I have ordained peace for you. I have a place of rest for you.Remember Mary and her sister, Martha. Luke 10:39 And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.
 40 But Martha was cumbered about with much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.41And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things:42 But one thing is needful.

Rising Above Disappointment

Rising Above Disappointment. In this life, there will be disappointments. There is no way around it. Everyone will experience it at some point in time during this journey called life. Disappointment defined by Webster as defeated in expectation or hope 2)sad or displeased because someone or something has failed to fulfill one’s hope or expectation. Disappointment can have devasting results on a person’s life if not handled in a positive manner. It can cause you to lose hope, or not believe anything good will come out of your life. It can hinder your growth, naturally and spiritually.

Rising above disappointment. Life is full of ups and downs. We do not always achieve everything we set out to do. Things don’t always go the way we envision it to go. Two people can look at a glass of water and one will see it as half empty and the other as half full. What difference does it make? The perception will impact your thoughts, your thoughts will impact your feelings, your feelings will impact your behavior.

Rising above disappointment. A person perceives the glass to be half empty. This person thought pattern about life is more likely to be one filled with negative thoughts i.e. nothing goes my way, everyone is against me, if it wasn’t for bad luck I wouldn’t have any luck etc. If that is the thought pattern the feelings attached to that thought more likely include sadness, anger, and/or frustration. These feelings will more likely result in the person engaging in negative behaviors that will only enforce those beliefs, i.e. not pursuing dreams, not giving their best efforts etc. FULL POST

Arrest Warrant

I initially published this as a note on my Facebook page. Now, I am sharing this with everyone in hope that more people will come into agreement with me I am glad to report that since I first published this in February, that arrests are coming more quickly than they have in the past. Also, several cold cases have been solved. I believe in the power of agreement.

This is the post I published on Facebook: Sick of the violence and lack of respect for life. Sick of the enemy killing and attempting to kill our children. Sick of the “don’t tell” mentality. Two young girls were shot over the weekend. Young man killed just walking down the street. I still have the image of that mother on her knees in the middle of the street crying “my baby”. I’m asking every intercessor to travail in mourning and groaning before the throne for justice. Holy Spirit pray and travail through us. We have run out of words. Interpret our moans and groans to the father. Heavenly father, if you don’t help us, there is no help. We come before you the righteous judge and present our case to you. The enemy is trying to take out a whole generation. The blood has come up the window and it cries out from the street. Righteous judge, we request an arrest warrant be issued for this enemy. Seek out every murderer and those that attempted murder. We decree their own words shall condemn them as they boast about their deeds. There shall be no hiding place for them. Every hiding place is revealed. Those that have protected them shall do so no more. We bind up fear that causes those that know the truth from speaking the truth. Send an angel to chase them down a dark and slippery path. Send delusions their way, confuse their minds, let them see the open eyes of those they murder everywhere they go. Let them hear the cry of their victims day and night. Let there be no rest for their spirit til they come to repentance. Let them feel like they are in Twilight Zone unable to escape their nightmare. Let them run when no one is chasing them. We decree this year that more murders will be exposed and captured than ever before. The possessor of the gate control what comes in and what goes out. Who comes and goes. What is allowed and is not allowed. We possess the gates of our cities and evict the spirit of violence. Jesus blood prevails and the spirit of death and destruction can not cross the blood line. We attack the strongman of murder and all connecting spirits. Anger, hatred, jealousy, bitterness, envy, pride, racism, and suicide, you are rendered helpless before the blood. We serve notice on every gang and terrorist that the land does not belong to you. The earth is the lord and all that dwell within. Yes, that include you. Ezekiel 18:4 Behold (pay close attention), all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who sins will die. God has given you a choice advises you to Choose Life.Deu 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live. Do you understand you have the power to break or bring a generational curse on your family by the choice you make? Let love arise in the hearts of the people. Peace rule in our surrounding. We choose life and we loose life in our communities. Father, comfort all those that mourn. You are the only one that brings good out of evil. Let what the enemy thought would cause them to turn from you be the very thing that will cause them to run to you for there is no other place of comfort. Release your peace, love, comfort and hope to them and give them strength to get through this for even this too shall pass. Arrest Warrant for murder and.or attempted murder:1) 15-year-old boy burned alive and placed in a garbage can, 2)Lane Bryant killer the murder of my cousin, 3)Eddie Jernigan 4)every person that has murdered or attempted to murder regardless of the length of time that has elapsed. If they have to make a deathbed confession, let it be so. Please feel free to add the name of someone you know.

Psalm 51 A Study In Repentance

Psalm 51 is a study of repentance. David, King of Israel broke three of God's commandments. Thou shall not covenant your neighbor wife, thou shall not commit adultery, and thou shall not kill(Exodus 20). David fully understood that he had broken these commandments. However, he was comfortable in his sin.

God sends Nathan to David and Nathan tells David a parable about a rich man who has everything and takes from a poor man who has very little, something that he values very much. David rises up in anger and self-righteousness 2 Samuel 12:5 And David's anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, As the Lord liveth, the man that hath done this thing shall surely die. We are quick to pass judgment on others while dismissing our own flaws and mistakes.

2 Samuel 12:7 And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. The truth of Nathan's words must have hit David like a sledgehammer. Thou are the man. David covet his neighbor's wife, committed adultery with her and put a hit out on the life of her husband. He betrayed someone that was fiercely loyal to him. He gave Uriah the Hittite a death warrant and had him deliver it to the person that would carry it out. Wow. That is heartless and the ultimate betrayal. FULL POST

Jesus Died For You

Jesus came into this world, took on flesh and walk on this earth for over 30 years. He didn’t come to condemn man but came seeking to save the lost. Jesus was rejected and misunderstood. Jesus knows what it is to be lied upon, talked about, mistreated and betrayed. He knew his fate upon entering this world but he came anyway. He came to die that you may live.

Jesus came to save the morally good person, the kind person, the one who is generous to others and compassionate. He came to save the lesbian, homosexual, perverted, pimp, prostitute, murderer and child molester. He came to save the liar, drunkard, thief, adulterer and adulteress, and gambler. He came to save the gang leader, gang members, and terrorist. He came to save the uneducated, well educated, mentally ill, poor and rich. He came to save the unbeliever, the fool who says there is no God and the atheist. He came to save the witch, sorcerer, and warlock. He came to save the young and the old.

Jesus came to save all mankind. God does not put sin in different categories, stating which is greater or less. SIN: Anything that violates or goes against the word of God. This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envying, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. (Gal. 5:16-21, KJV). FULL POST

Making the transition

The word transition automatically implies change. Webster defines transition this way: a passage from one state, stage, subject, or place to another: b: a movement, development, or evolution from one form, stage, or style to another. It is the act of preparing to do things in a different manner. It is the state of moving from one place to another or from one thing or task to another.

As this year draws to an end we are transitioning into the new year. Naturally, many things are taking place as we prepare for the new year. Some customs include giving your home a thorough cleaning, discarding things we no longer have any use for, perhaps checking the freezer for items that need to be disposed of etc. Businesses take inventory of what products are left, which did well and which did not. Accountants review their financial books to determine where they stand financially.

This year we have a transition of power in the White House. President Obama has extended his hand to assist President-elect Donald Trump in making this transition. President Obama states he is willing to do all that it takes to assist President-elect Trump because it is important for him to do well that our nation made do well. He understands that this transition is more important than his personal beliefs/opinions about the incoming President. FULL POST

Donald Trump President-Elect? What Now?

1st Samuel 8:19 Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us;

Let me make it perfectly clear that it is my opinion that Donald Trump Should Not Be President. He is racist. He is sexist.He has no experience in government. He has No experience in military strategies and little regard for those who have served,.disregard for the law when he it goes against what he considers to be violence but he advocates violence. Wonder why hate groups are attracted to him? He is self-absorbed. He right. He lacks compassion. He has no regard for the poor,sick, or disabled.Not only does he attractsis egotist.

I personally think the only reason he ran for President was to get back at President Obama for humiliating him at the White House Correspondent dinner. Why is he so focused on destroying the legacy of President Barack Obama? https://youtu.be/k8TwRmX6zs4. Advocates during away with Geneva Convention, and possibly NATO.He has been inconsistent about his stance on many issues http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/full-list-donald-trump-s-rapidly-changing-policy-positions-n547801 He has lack of emotional control and is temperamental.
