Blessing, Promise And The Appointed Time

11:11, 13:13 and 22:22 Double numbers have been appearing in front of my eyes for weeks now! There is a promise and God has initiated it and it cannot return void.

11:11 -  I believe that we are in the 11th hour. Not the end of the world. But we are in the moment like when Moses stood at the waters edge and waited for God to part it.  I believe we are in TRANSITION. I believe that we are moving from one season into the NEW.  A SHIFT has taken place. I believe it is happening now.

 Isaiah 11:11

“It shall come to pass in that day
That the Lord shall set His hand again the second time
To recover the remnant of His people who are left”

13:13 -  I believe has to do with the PROMISE SEED, DREAMS and HOPES. Look at the promise to Abraham… God promised him that he was to have a child, a PROMISED SEED and from that child’s linage would come kings and rulers of “many nations” as well as the Messiah...“the Seed to come.” (Geneses 16-17) Abraham and his wife Sarah were childless and very old at the time God gave them the Promise. Through their many years of waiting and having disappointment of being childless, they tried to help God out- they stepped out of the appointed time by having a child through Hagar, Sarah’s maidservant. Through this Ishmael was born. Time passed and God came again to Abraham and made the same Promise of Blessing. God reminded Abraham that the promised son would be born from his own wife. Nine months later, Isaac was born.  The appointed time!

Here is a key: The relationship between Abraham and God, how and when God gave Abraham the Promise, Abraham’s and Sarah’s struggle, the time involved in receiving the manifestation of the Promise. These are all wrapped-up in the number “13”

In Genesis 16: 15-17 Hagar bore Ishmael, Abraham was 86 years old. Then “when Abraham was 99 years old the Lord appeared to him” and reminded him of the Promise again---that He will give Abraham a son by his wife. I will bless her, and she will produce nations; kings of peoples will come from her. (Genesis 17:1-22) At 86 years old, Abraham tried to bring about Gods Promise. At 99 years old, God’s Promise came. 13 years between the Promise given and the Promise manifested. 99-86 =13 equals PROMISE. The promise is two-fold. It involves man and God. It has seasons, times and circumstances in which God and man participate. God determined it, said it, and it would happen regardless of the circumstances. The number 13 is the difference of what man can do and what God can do. Do not take this in your own hands. Wait on the Lord. Wait. He is in the waiting. He appoints the time. Wait for the PROMISE. There is new life and blessing in this appointed time.

 

22:22 - I believe it is time to go through the doors. OPEN them. When I was in Bristol on Sunday I saw these banners that said Bristol Opening Doors – It is an event that happens only once a year and a chance to look behind closed doors and discover the city’s hidden treasures… I believe that God is giving us keys to closed doors and we can now in this APPOINTED time open them and discover and unveil the cities hidden treasures. Seeing the unseen manifest in the seen!

Isaiah 22:22

“The key of the house of David
I will lay on his shoulder;
So he shall open, and no one shall shut;
And he shall shut, and no one shall open.”

Appointing The Days

Appointing The Days

I had a dream this morning, in my dream; I heard God tell me to eat the lamb, at first I was hesitant to eat the lamb because I am a vegan. However, I realized I was dreaming and saw myself dreaming and so I ate the lamb as I was told to do. I then asked God, “Why are you having me eat the lamb?” I felt that He was saying that this is an appointed time in history. It was important for me to commune and take the lamb completely. Lambs are symbolic of sacrifice; I believe there is a call to present ourselves to Him as a LIVING sacrifice. He is the Lamb of God. As we align ourselves with the Lamb and commune with God we will see His power overcoming and defeating what has tried to intimidate us from the truth of victory. Whether that victory is in family, friendships or finances God will prosper you, because that is His nature. He is faithful to Himself and His word; therefore he is faithful to you. Eat the lamb – commune this day with Him. I never imagined myself speaking this way! I have been a vegetarian for twenty-three years and a vegan for nearly four of those years. I know that God is capturing my attention and I must share it.
After this dream I began praying and I heard the sound of many trumpets blowing, I did not only hear them but I saw them as well. I felt an immediate awakening in my body and soul and spirit. I heard Him say, “Alignment is key in this appointed time.” After this I looked and I saw the Lion, first walking very stately and then his walk turned into an authoritative march. I believe the Lion in the vision is symbolic of God imparting strength to endure the call! To be fearless, He is with you, marching ahead of you. He has sounded the trumpets for this time and season. You are appointed for such a time as this!

The Lion Has Roared

Amos 3
Listen to this, Israel (INSERT YOUR NAME).
GOD is calling you to account( ALIGNMENT)—and I mean ALL of you, everyone connected with the family that he delivered out of Egypt (YOUR PAST BOUNDAGES).

Listen! “Out of all the families on earth, I PICKED you. Therefore, because of your special calling, I’m holding you responsible for all your sins.” (Alignment) – (Repent, forgive and walk with love. BE IN UNITY WITH ONE ANOTHER)
Do two people walk hand in hand if they aren’t going to the same place?
Does a lion roar in the forest if there’s no carcass to devour? Does a young lion growl with pleasure if he hasn’t caught his supper? Does a bird fall to the ground
if it hasn’t been hit with a stone? Does a trap spring shut if nothing trips it?

When the alarm goes off in the city, aren’t people alarmed? And when disaster strikes the city, doesn’t GOD stand behind it? The fact is, GOD, the Master, does nothing without first telling his prophets the whole story.
The lion has roared— who isn’t frightened?
GOD has spoken—what prophet can keep quiet?

God lives outside of time. A boundary on time was presented in the natural world in the process of creation. Our creator lives outside of this realm and that spiritual realm is a place that God has invited us to live from, see from and process from. God has called us to see the unseen. Jesus gave us this example over and over. Our faith heroes showed us how they did it. Now it is our turn to do it. Remember we are not waiting for a move a God- we are a move of God. He is near… draw to Him, drink from Him, think from Him. See from Him.

Hear the sound of the trumpets; He is drawing our attention to the appointed time. We must gather and pray.

Psalm 90:12
Teach us to number our days that we may GAIN a heart of understanding.

God is not just merely asking us to number the days of our life but He is calling us to be intentional with our life, to hear the sounds of Heaven calling us higher then the ways of the world.

The Hebrew meaning for number is manah – “Teach us to manah our days” It means to: appoint, to prepare. We must begin to prepare our days. Even the days we cannot see. We must pray into those days. Let us not be a people that become passive about life and see what our days bring to us. But let us be a people that become people of intentionality and people who prepare and appoint the days ahead. If Mary could ask for wine before it was time… I wonder what God is opening our eyes to in this season. We can’t determine the outcome fully, but we can appoint the days in God and He can bring about what is good. We can consecrate the days ahead to have a purpose in God and that those purposes will be accomplished.

I once was told a story that someone was being intentional in way that was harmful to our family – they wanted to pray us out of a church, friendships and country. This is a harmful and unproductive prayer- But God wants us to pray life and abundantly. Let us not waste another day wasting even our prayers. But let us become intentional. Let us be UNITED. Let love win in the days ahead!

Let us not allow our days to determine our life, but let our life determine our days. Do not just let your days go by but appoint them – prepare them. Let the days ahead become vessels of blessing and life.

Appoint your days. Hear the sound of the trumpets blowing this day. The lion of Judah is sounding His roar and marching the land.

Forgiveness and The Kingdom

I have sat and pondered the heart of forgiveness and what that looks like in Kingdom Life - Kingdom Culture. Worldly culture tells us we can forgive but we do not have to forget. Worldly culture tells us to put boundaries on our love so we don’t get hurt. I can’t find this is Kingdom culture. Kingdom culture tells us to keep no records of wrong, to be patient and kind. The Kingdom Culture reveals how we should not be proud but humble. LOVE NEVER GIVES UP ON PEOPLE. I believe this is a key to see revival in the land. Many pray for revival but I think, just maybe Jesus is praying for unity.

“Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. Love is not rude, it is not selfish, and it cannot be made angry easily. Love does not remember wrongs done against it. Love is never happy when others do wrong, but it is always happy with the truth. Love never gives up on people. It never stops trusting, never loses hope, and never quits.8 Love will never end.” Corinthians 13:4-8

Forgiveness has no record of mistakes. Jesus is always covering each mistake we make. When we ask Him to forgive us He does not hold us in contempt and keep our wrongs in jail and hold them over us. He does not keep a list and bring it up every time we fall short. He just forgives. He covers the wrongs by the price He paid on the cross. He makes all wrongs right. He does this INSTANTLY. If we hold people in contempt for mistakes they make then we ourselves become bound by bitterness and we truly cannot LOVE as we are called to love. Christ gave up His life. All He is asking us to do is give up our pride. Love keeps no record of wrong. Thank God for His never changing love. Thank goodness He has no boundaries with His love. Thank goodness He is limitless with forgiveness.

I learned many years ago when my son was shaken by a babysitter; that I had to forgive. I have been on a journey for twenty-four years of learning to walk in that way and keep no record of pain and hurt, but to try to love without boundaries. I believe the greatest revival God wants on the earth is UNITY that is marked by love.

We must come to a place where what we talk about in regards to the Kingdom begins to actually become the truth we live by in action and deed. We must stop accusing people of being controlling, being a Jezebel and simply holding those in contempt for mistakes they make. WE are releasing judgement in a way that does not bring resolve. I believe that God is calling us to be a part of a great move of love that the byproduct of it is signs, wonders and miracles. Love compelled Him - Jesus to the cross for our freedom. When someone asks for forgiveness Love should abound. We should not quit on people but let LOVE win, the kind of love that COVERS a multitude of sin. The kind of love that brings change. Just like the merciful change He brought to you when you opened your heart to Him. Be merciful so that mercy is shown to you. Forgive so that forgiveness is shown to you.

Matthew 6:9-14
Our Father in heaven, we pray that your name will always be kept holy.
HE SITS ON THE THRONE – HE IS HOLY

We pray that your kingdom will come— that what you want will be done here on earth, the same as in heaven. YOU ARE GIVING HIM PERMISSION TO BE IN CHARGE. YOU ARE ALIGNING YOURSELF UP WITH HIS WILL, NOT YOURS.

Give us the food we need for today.
READ THE WORD. IT BRINGS YOU LIFE. ABUNDANTLY.

Forgive our sins, just as we have forgiven those who did wrong to us. THIS IS UNITY

Don’t let us be tempted, but save us from the Evil One. LET NO PRIDE IN. FORGIVE. LOVE DISPELS DARKNESS. LOVE HIM WITH YOUR WHOLE BEING ☺

Yes, if you forgive others for the wrongs they do to you, then your Father in heaven will also forgive your wrongs. 15 But if you don’t forgive others, then your Father in heaven will not forgive the wrongs you do.

My prayer today is that you too will be able to walk in forgiveness so that bitterness will not keep you bound. My prayer is that you would be able to release forgiveness and hold no wrongs. I pray that you will be reminded that the Kingdom of God longs for unity. I pray that as you have been forgiven without contempt that you too can do the same.

Love has to be so essential for the body to be unified and for members to work TOGETHER. We are all very different and sometimes lack commonality but through LOVE we can enjoy each other if we submit ourselves to God and His way of life. The world has many different cultures in it, but God has one - The Kingdom Culture, let us live from that place.

Take a risk

A person with passion will take risks. Everything you want in the realm of the Kingdom is found through this veil of difficulty by stepping into the realm of inconvenience...

“God's kingdom is like a treasure hidden in a field for years and then accidentally found by a trespasser. The finder is ecstatic—what a find!—and proceeds to sell everything he owns to raise money and buy that field.” ~ thank you, Matthew 13:44
