Keys of Death

“I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.” Revelation 1:18

“This understanding of death…freed Rich to live…and love people without expectations.” James Bryan Smith relates about Rich Mullins in “An Arrow Pointing to Heaven.”

Such peace and comfort Jesus gives, knowing He keeps our loved ones.

 

“That’s My Dad”

“His name is Daddy,” a little boy informed us on the bus pointing, the man nodded & said smiling, “that’s right.”

The sweetness of the moment and the concerted smiles all around made me wonder, do we know who our Father in heaven is?

Romans 8:15

“For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, ‘Abba, Father.'”

 

 

Miracle Appointment

A friend walked up to me, “Are you going to call?” She said before she left the house, “the Lord told me to agree with you in prayer.” Because she obeyed God, I received the answer I was praying for.  Thank You, Jesus!

Corrie ten Boom says, “love and obedience” in Not I, But Christ.

“But Samuel replied: “Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.” 1 Samuel 15:22 (NIV)

Jesus in John 21:17, “Do you love Me?”

SOAK

Heard this in my spirit the first day after planting starter vegetables in the garden, telling me to provide plenty of water.

A friend recently expounded: “Let the tiny roots find their way and spread out receiving nutrients, giving life to the plant’s growth.”

Mark 4:28 (KJV) “For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.”

“[The Bible training College’s] entire strength lies in the fact that here you are immersed in the truths of God to soak in them before Him.” Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, October 19th.

 

 

 

 

 

Desire — Laura Bon

Visions, Revelations and Messages In this revelation the Lord said to me, “your want for the presence of God must turn to desire.” Desire is deeper than want. Earnest heartfelt desire is what produces result and that desire is hunger and thirst. And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water…

**See Laura Bon’s blogs and the prophecies from the Lord.  This is one more that really touched me.  1 Peter 4:10 (NLT), “God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.”

 

Go To A Funeral – Prophecy

My friend received this word from the Lord:

“Go to a funeral, rather than an amusement park.”

Huh? Why would God say this? Are we called to go where Jesus’ Presence is and not be distracted from His calling?

Luke 7:11-16 (BibleGateway):

Now it happened, the day after, that He went into a city called Nain; and many of His disciples went with Him, and a large crowd. 12 And when He came near the gate of the city, behold, a dead man was being carried out, the only son of his mother; and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the city was with her. 13 When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.” 14 Then He came and touched the open coffin, and those who carried him stood still. And He said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.” 15 So he who was dead sat up and began to speak. And He presented him to his mother.

16 Then fear came upon all, and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has risen up among us”; and, “God has visited His people.”
