We were all at Luke 2 – 3 this morning. We were many. There should be more. More should study God’s word. Jesus is the word of God.
Revelation 19:11-16 ESV
11Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. 12His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. 13He is clothed in a robe dipped inb blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. 14And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. 15From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rulec them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. 16On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.
I bumped into Linda and Anita. I was reminded of our worship. Every year we listen to God’s voice and seek HIS face to know what the colours of our banners will be. I am amazed what the LORD is doing in the lives of my daughters. I just let go and let God. It’s all about the LORD and how HE works in the ❤ s of my children. After all we are all God’s children. All God’s. Not mine. Even my own sons who came out of my womb are not mine. They belong to the LORD and I just get to raise them because the LORD chose me to be their mother. Linda is like us. Let me explain why. When the ladies raise their banners the spiritual realm is like our sermon, heaven here on earth. The throne room of Jesus in Revelations 4, here on earth. So, in this place and this ministry it has been a very ❤ breaking place to minister in.
❤ this pin from Global University.
When my eldest daughter waved her banners, it was so beautiful. So gentle in the breeze. Who is this breeze. The Holy Spirit of course and the colours of the banners changed in colours. There was open heavens and the showers of blessings began to sprinkle down from the open portal. Silver in colour. You have got to ❤ worship. Pay the price of paying for the banners. The ones the LORD chooses and not what is just out. Most importantly, you have got to ❤ Jesus with all of your ❤ your mind and your strength. These two girls lifting them up. This generation and the next. They have got this very talent. Hand picked from the LORD. You can see it. The banners look so beautiful. So light and so pretty and the colours flicker in the spirit realm. If you could but see what I can see. O but no one does. Years and years of visions and dreams and listening to God’s voice. Fasting and prayer daily. Quiet time daily. Hours. Hours of study at night. The word of God. A life with Jesus. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. So now maybe Linda may join us. Then of course there is Cecille who has just come back. She is beginning to twirl and dance, with, not for, Jesus. This is not a, for, place. This is a, with, place. It takes years to mature. To grow up from drinking milk to meat. The evidence of my youngest daughter who is filled with the Holy Spirit, all hot on her back and her neck and shoulders. Do you feel this? Your back and arms and hands prickle. The oils down your face and chin and neck and front. I used to think about Aaron a lot and know how he felt when he was anointed with the oils. The dew from the heavens. The Holy Spirit. The oils from Hebron. I know the LORD is going to do great things in the ❤ s and the minds of my children. HIS children. This generation and the next. Jo is fifteen. We must ever remember that the LORD of hosts is all around us. God is a shield around us. Our ❤ s and minds are marked with HIS name. Jesus Jesus Jesus. I was born for such a time as this. So are they. They take authority each and every time they lift up their hands unto the LORD and worship HIM in spirit and truth.
Hey, look at Grace’s teaching today. I ❤ it. Not my gift, maps. But today she brought a new perspective into the light by the way she introduced our study. In colour. According to Herod the Great’s sons. Interesting right. Well, for me anyways. I’m no good at maps. I’m still trying to figure in my mind where is where so that I can answer the questions without looking at the map. It took her hours to prepare this.
Still waiting for Winnie to return as she loves to dance. I just stand back and watch what the LORD is doing in the lives of the ladies and HE ever makes my ❤ lose a beat when the LORD does what HE does. HIS presence. And HE says, the LORD this is, Yahweh, ‘They are MINE.’
Therefore, we are to journal what the LORD has done in our lives and spoken to our ❤ s and what we have seen and heard from HIM and HIM alone. We are all called to be holy and our LORD is holy. We are to turn and seek HIS face. When you look at the face of the LORD it will, will, change your life, that you will never ever be the same again. You just have to look at what HE is doing. Ears to hear. Eyes to see. Hands to touch. A ❤ to ❤ A mind of Christ’s. For, we have the mind of Christ.
O I ❤ to study the word of God. It is so much fun. Yesterday ‘Great Commission Strategies’ and today ‘Luke’.
To be ‘in right standing with God’, this is what ‘shalom’ means to us.
4:1 Then1 Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan River and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, 4:2 where for forty days he endured temptations from the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and when they were completed, he was famished. 4:3 The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.” 4:4 Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘Man12 does not live by bread alone.’ ”
4:5 Then the devil led him up to a high place and showed him in a flash all the kingdoms of the world. 4:6 And he said to him, “To you I will grant this whole realm—and the glory that goes along with it, for it has been relinquished to me, and I can give it to anyone I wish. 4:7 So then, if you will worship me, all this will be yours.” 4:8 Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘You are to worship the Lord your God and serve only him.’ ”
4:9 Then the devil brought him to Jerusalem, had him stand on the highest point of the temple, and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here, 4:10 for it is written, ‘He will command his angels concerning you, to protect you,’ 4:11 and ‘with their hands they will lift you up, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’ ” 4:12 Jesus39 answered him, “It is said, ‘You are not to put the Lord your God to the test.’ ” 4:13 So when the devil had completed every temptation, he departed from him until a more opportune time.
