Consolation in Christ

“Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.”

Philippians 2:1-2 BibleGateway

Lifting up my friends to You, Lord, for You to cut through the cloudiness with Your light and Son and raise them up out of the ashes like a Phenix bird. Our thirsty eyes are satisfied in Your beauty, You give us revelation. Let them have vertical focus, in Jesus’ name.

Deliverance Is Of The LORD

“The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but deliverance is of the LORD.”

Proverbs 21:31

The battle is not flesh and blood 

“but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Ephesians 6:12

Let us daily, put on our spiritual armor, knowing there’s no such thing as fear. It’s a tool of the devil. “Perfect love casts out fear.”  And trust God our Father; there’s always another way, always another answer.

Remember Who You Are

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” 1 Peter 2:9 (NIV) BibleHub

“Who are you?”  the Lord asked Pastor Heidi Baker, shared on April 4, 2020, “Hope of The Nations”

“We are His church, His bride” she answers

Earlier in the year, I was asked this a few times when I finally answered, “I’m a daughter of the Most High God, bought with His blood.” When Pastor Heidi said many of us are being asked, then I was sure it was the Lord, it gave me confidence. We need to build each other up, share our prophecies, be strong together and not be swayed by what’s in the news.

“Remember who you are”  I heard last week in a dream 

“And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.”

1 Corinthians 3:23

 

His Great Love

“But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.”                                                                 Jude 20-21

“But God who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us….made us alive with Christ.”                                                           Ephesians 2:4-5

“How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.”                                 Psalm 36:7

“God’s love is so transforming,” praises my friend.

Trust / Rest

Many times in prayers one word follows the other, similar sounding at the end, as if they have the same meaning.

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.”

Proverbs 3:5

May I please pray for y’all?  

Father God, we rest and trust in You alone.  You lead and guide us, You’re true and You love us with everlasting love and have plans, not problems*.  The fearmongers are out in droves, wearing sheep’s clothing, but Your word says, ‘perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment.” 1 John 4:18, and, “Love has been perfected in us…that we may have boldness.” Glory to You, Daddy!

*Corrie ten Boom

 

We’re Cool

Seated with Christ in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6)

Children of God (John 1:12)

We are one in Christ (Romans 12:5)

Blessed are those who do the will of My Father

Luke 11:28

We love one another, worship together, pray with each other, learn from each other, we see each other knowing we’re from different walks in life, different countries, different financial status. Our families lived through riots, injustice, sin; Now:

New in Jesus Christ, new man / woman.   

 

 

Put Your Hands Up – Dream

“Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.”

Psalm 63:4 BibleGateway

Prophetic Dream: A meeting with plain-clothed nuns had ended. Facing my papers on the table, a voice behind me said, “Put your hands up,” Turning around, I realize she is putting worship music on a record player, “Oh, yes” I agreed.

Lord Father, unite us to worship You together even when we talk differently or sound awkward.  Let us  live in peaceable love, not fear of man. We surrender to Your amazing love and goodness.

Season of High Favor Dream

“Loving favor rather than silver and gold”  Proverbs 22:1

Acts 2:52, (NIV), “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”

Prophetic Dream: working at a closed business in a mall.  A young black man was given a prize: Chanel No. 5. The rest of us could choose a prize from the closet on the honor system when our work was finished, nothing expensive.

  • perfume= anointing of the Holy Spirit
  • 5= Grace
  • mall= commercial church

Symbols from “Divinity Code” by Adam Thompson and Adrian Beale

A few Prophetic Pastors said that receiving favor can be embarrassing, it’s nothing you earned, it’s just your timing, and God has expensive taste.   I believe it’s a time of supernatural favor from the Lord for young men of color.

Similarly Pr. Joel Osteen did a teaching on a ‘season of high favor’ it’s a window of time, so realize it and enjoy it.

 

“He is Kind to the Unthankful & Evil”

“But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.”

Luke 6:35

God, You are sovereign, You are good, Your ways are higher, Your thoughts are higher. we exalt You, King of our hearts.

“He sends rain on the just and the unjust.”    Matthew 5:45

“So the demons begged Him, saying, ‘If You cast us out, permit us to go away into the herd of swine.’ And He said to them, ‘Go.'”

Matthew 8:30
