our crown ( one of mine )

I’m some blessed cookie I tell you, I woke up this morning and verses from
Scripture started being spoken to me and JESUS started talking talking and talking …… and then this song …….

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwyuPvNjhUM

the first one

20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Ga 2:20). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

the second one cos I was so tired studying the WORD for my exams yesterday, even my little toe hurt, every muscle in my body was aching like I’d been in a championship

🙂

but JESUS says

8 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; 10 always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. 11 For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12 So death is at work in us, but life in you.
13 Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, “I believed, and so I spoke,” we also believe, and so we also speak, 14 knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence. 15 For cit is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.
16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self his being renewed day by day. 17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (2 Co 4:8–18). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail, and you shall only go up and not down, if you obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, being careful to do them,

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Dt 28:12–13). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

Pneumatology
the power of the Holy Spirit
Global University

It’s been tough but …. it’s been all good …… once we had this bible study and we were taught about Refiner’s FIRE and how silver is refined through fire seven times, seven is a perfect number in God’s kingdom, I listened attentively ….. like I always ever do ….. lest I miss something JESUS is trying to tell me through the saints, so I ever and always pay the utmost attention …. it might just be so important and a turning point …. in my walk …. so simple …… yet so edifying …….. I was passing through the FIRE of the WORD at that point in my walk and my heart was being pierced by God’s WORD …… literally ……. but those days taught me never to give up on the WORD and to hold fast to Scripture like my life depended on it …….. like the manna Israel ate in the desert for forty years ……… going through the Pneumatology reminded me of things I’d hidden in my heart ….. truths ….. simple truths that only a people who’ve experienced it for true life can share ….. I’m not alone in this walk …. by the long run …… I’m just one ….. in many …….. all stretching forward …… and upwards …….. gaining speed ……… not giving up ………. you know the crushing causes a sweet sweet aroma unto the LORD ……. you all know in Genesis when the first covenant was cut and the sweet sweet aroma satisfied the LORD …… our lives ……. when we are crushed by circumstance ….. whatever it may be …… for me it’s as simple as I’m studying heartily ……. it releases unto the LORD a sweet sweet aroma …… and HE smiles upon us ….. as HE is satisfied ……… so …… many of us are going through circumstances beyond our control …… as I was taught …… you are a sweet sweet aroma unto the LORD ……. don’t give up the good good fight of faith ……. a crown awaits you …… before the LORD …… our LORD JESUS who is the Christ ……….. 🙂 as for me and my house ….. we will serve the LORD ……. upwards and forwards I will plunge my sword and forwards and upwards is my goal …… Christ JESUS our LORD …….. MESSIAH …. the great I AM …….. I love YOU JESUS

…………….. I’m no baby ………. it was said to me time and time again …… don’t act like a baby ……… try being me, if I get one thing wrong …… I get told off immediately …… wrong direction …….

Peace with God Through Faith

5 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance,  and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Ro 5:1–5). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

a crown

 

a baptism of praise up up up unto the LORD

11 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Php 4:11a). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

is the first thing you think about when you wake up
the first Person you think about
wonder about what your first thought
your first wonderment about your day
like some love sick first love
this is me
to be honest
I think and wonder most of my day about what JESUS is going to show me
my God
the Father
the Son
and
the Holy Spirit

my crown of glory

1 August 2014 12893953-closeup-of-a-representation-of-the-jesus-christ-crown-of-thorns-with-blood

Propitiation.

By the BLOOD of the Lamb.

I was on my way down to meet with my husband for our meal of the day at 5 pm today and on the free shuttle bus as I was looking out the window I was suddenly shown a crown in my hands. 

A very small golden crown.

A simple one.

Nothing on it.

With my palms lifted up to the heavens ……

A very small gold crown sat in them. 

1 August 2014 depositphotos_9655706-Golden-crown

Open clean hands facing upwards.

I asked the LORD what this crown was and HE said that it was for my service.

http://www.sharefaith.com/guide/christian-principles/new-creation-reality/five-crowns-of-christian-service.html

Tears flowed down my eyes non – stop ……. 

as they do now.

I just could not stop them running down my face ……

Just some years back I remember saying there was no way I would ever be able to attain that crown.

For I never in my entire life thought I would ever get this crown of glory for the rebellion in my voice when I was twelve. 

But today

the GLORY of the LORD poured forth 

HIS grace and HIS blessings 

down upon my life.

And I heard …….

hope does not disappoint

Now I’m wearing a gown of blazing pure bright white of the 

oils of the Holy Spirit. 

Let us put on and wear the cloak of humility.

The outpouring of the Holy Spirit is upon me.

Big time.

We take the baton and try our best to pass it on. It’s hard …. but …. seems like ……

Here’s the baton.

Pass it on and on and on.

2 August 2012 Spirit and Truth

The baton passed has been taken filled with heartaches and suffering so that the gospel could be passed down throughout the ages.

Only God knows the heart of man but we sometimes can grasp ……. 

how much it cost to pass the baton.

To take hold of it.

The cost.

Thank YOU Father.

Peace with God Through Faith

5 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. 11 More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

rip it, it’s a tidal wave church

I’ve been cleaning house, we sing this a lot with our pastor, it’s lovely, I love this worship song, I heard this all day long, good eh ……….
let YOUR rain fall upon me

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMneCBDVBoU

I’ve had like this awesome day, I cannot keep up with the LORD, with the Spirit, with JESUS, the pace is astounding, over lunch I was eating and then, revelation …… I just ate and sat and talked to the LORD, it was good my husband did not get mad at me, I think he was just grateful I was eating again, I did not eat for two days, I still cannot really eat like before, it makes me sick to think of eating, anyways ……..
there I was sitting and eating lunch in a public place and boommmmmmmm
what happens
I see this tidal wave
then I hear
rip it
I want to laugh
if you were a bowler this would make sense, cos we do gym and when we do gym we do gym, it is not that Michael is not a good man, he is very patient and would never force us to do anything we did not want to do but the process is exceedingly painful, man does it hurt,
we cannot just lift those weights … he says
we have to feel it pull the various muscles that he informs us to feel
slowly is very painful
anyways so I get to this stage of really heavy weights and look like some sumi wrestler and all the girls are laughing at me
what happened to your legs, you’re so fat, why are your shoulders sticking out, you been eating or something
the thing is … we ain’t allowed to eat, just what they tell us,
so, after a year or two …..
Michael informs me that I can just let it all go
rip it
your muscles will support whatever
gently
you’re too strong now
and I do
I just rip it
that ball just goes
kazoooooooooommmmmmmmmm
now when I saw this wave
it was like the LORD was just telling me
rip it girl
just go
just do it
kazoooooooooooooommmmmmmmmm
I don’t suppose anyone else can relate except an elite athlete

good morning LORD
I’m so tired and my body aches from reading about you for the last two weeks
but but but
LORD JESUS
it’s worth it
cos
I love YOU so much LORD JESUS
and
I just want to know more and more and more about YOU LORD JESUS
cos
I do not want to stray from YOUR WORD at all LORD JESUS
🙂
thank YOU Holy Spirit for YOUR enlightenment and illumination of THY WORD
thank YOU LORD
🙂
so as YOU have instructed me this morning
I stand on YOUR ROCK
solidly
upon YOUR WORD
upon YOU O LORD JESUS
by the power of the Holy Spirit
and preach Christ JESUS
crucified for the salvation of all and for all
solidly stood on this ROCK
Christ JESUS
whom the builders rejected

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kV5iZBTNYrk

standing on the ROCK of my Salvation
solidly
with all this studying of Scripture

🙂

to be honest, my body aches so much from studying …. I do get to this point of total abandonment to Christ JESUS our LORD ….. I like this place though, I love this place actually ….. cos I’m totally weak and frail …… I surrender and submit to the Christ JESUS our LORD by the power of the Holy Spirit, in my weakness, Christ is strong, total dependency in Christ JESUS, with all this reading of the apostles, they were probably in this situation ….. but I’m just reading ….. they lived it ……. a life style …… from place to place to place in rejection or acceptance …… what a roller coaster ride for them …… for me … I’m just in the luxury of my home ….. safe and sound in the arms and the embrace of my beloved Saviour …….. 🙂  ….. does this figure ……. just thinking and pondering ……. all about JESUS …….. what more is there to think about ….. it’s beautiful outside my window, I see across the harbour to the other side of our city and it’s misty ……. raining …… blessings from heaven …. it’s simply beautiful ………

3  Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD?
And who shall stand in his holy place?
4  He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who does not lift up his soul to what is false
and does not swear deceitfully.
5  He will receive blessing from the LORD
and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6  Such is ithe generation of those who seek him,
who seek the face of the God of Jacob. Selah

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Ps 24:3–6). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

2 But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Mal 3:2). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

4 Therefore, my brothers, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm thus in the Lord, my beloved.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Php 4). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

8 For now we live, if you rare standing fast in the Lord.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (1 Th 3:8). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

A Great Multitude from Every Nation

9 After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” 11 And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
13 Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, dclothed in white robes, and from where have they come?” 14 I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and lmade them white min the blood of the Lamb.

15  “Therefore they are before the throne of God,
and serve him day and night in his temple;
and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence.
16  They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore;
the sun shall not strike them,
nor any scorching heat.
17  For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd,
and he will guide them to springs of living water,
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Re 7:9–17). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

glory be to God

Nothing but the pure WORD is what I enjoy most. When I was young, a blessed one here, all I was given was God. Only God ……..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWmg48weMsM

I don’t think I ever thought about anything else. And I had a lot of fun in a safe and loving environment. I’m one of the blessed ones. Protected of the LORD.
It says in the bible that if you raise a child in the ways of the LORD, they will never ever forget it. So true. In my life I do not think I’ve ever really thought of anything that is more important than God and HIS WORD.
When I first read the bible as a book, it was like I’d read it and heard of it all before. Not foreign to me. So well known in my heart. I was so touched by the WORD of  God that ever single WORD I cherished and ate deliciously and scrumptiously. It was an awesome experience.
The only books that I was stunned at were the prophetic ones and I read them ….. was your first study Ezekiel. Mine was. God said and I read it. What I learnt in that study, personal devotional was that God said and Ezekiel did. Total obedience. This is where I got my obedience for the LORD.
My bible teacher was horrified. Not Ezekiel. It’s too difficult for you.
But the thing is it wasn’t. It was easy until it got to the part of rebuilding the temple of Jerusalem and well …. all those measurements and stuff. Not my thing. Don’t think I’m gifted in architecture at all.
We all talk but in the end, it’s true, we all have to give an account of our lives before a HOLY God. Good deeds and bad deeds. It speaks of a separation of the sheep and the goats. And JESUS saying, I do not know you.
When I read that it really spoke to my heart.
The pure WORD is the best thing to read. It purifies, sanctifies, justifies and glorifies God.
I get hungry if I do not study God’s WORD.
I don’t care if people think I’m boring. It certainly won’t be boring in heaven for all eternity.
🙂

I love it when I wake up into JESUS’ glorious pure white bright LIGHT. 

And …..

HE speaks …….. 

Glory be to God.

Reap and sow.

What you sow you will eventually reap. 

What you eat will affect your body. The temple of the Holy Spirit. 

Meat is delicious. Scrumptious. 

God’s pure WORD is meat.  And when you digest it, the rewards you reap will be heavenly. 

Too deep. Too high. 

Nah.

Too easy.

Raise the bar. Don’t lower it.

🙂

🙂
