THE TIME IS NOW. BE SET APART

You shall not make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause anyone to swear by them; you shall not serve them nor bow down to them, 8 but you shall hold fast to the Lord your God, as you have done to this day.

JOSHUA 23:7-8

The Lord is doing a sanctifying, setting apart work in His people. What I have been hearing in my spirit for some time now for His people is:

Don’t give place to the devil [Ephesians 4:27].

And more recently: The Time is Now. Be Set Apart. Give Place to the devil NO MORE.

In order to be all He’s called YOU and I to be, we must live a set apart with God life. It’s clear in His Word that His children can “know better” and continue to give place to the devil. And it makes sense that if we are choosing, by our own free will, to give place to the devil, that we will also be hindered from fully accomplishing all He desires for us.

Are any of us perfect? No. Will His people still sin? Yes. But the more we abide in Him and rely on Him and His power, the less and less we will. The more sensitive we will be to His Holy Spirit and the sooner we will sense and know His conviction BEFORE we sin and can then choose to avoid it. This is not about living in fear of sinning because if we sin, we have an Advocate Jesus Christ who’s covered all our sins [Galatians 3:13–15] – past, present, and future – but that we can again “know better” and sin anyway and give the enemy permission to railroad every area of our lives. BUT, we don’t HAVE to. That’s the difference.

With His help, it is possible to live a sanctified, set apart holy life. Otherwise, He wouldn’t tell us to be holy as He is Holy [1 Peter 1:15-17] if we couldn’t (by the power of the Holy Spirit and abiding in His Word).

Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you,” (James 4:7).

There was a period of time in my walk with the Lord where I thought I was really walking with the Lord much closer than I actually was, but looking back I see many areas of compromise and where I gave place to the devil in my life to wreak havoc. Mainly with my TV entertainment choices. It goes to show us how any of God’s children can be deceived. Even recently regarding some PG-13 movies and TV shows, the Lord told me they are not for His people, that they give place to the devil, and He said they are not for me. Yes, there’s barely anything left for me to watch TV and movie wise because most of it has been hijacked by the devil, but Jesus is my first love, and I choose Him and all He’s called me to over them.

Above in Joshua 23:7-8, the Lord says, “make not mention” of the names of their gods. Well, “their gods” may not have the same names as the ones in Joshua’s time but they have new names like much of what Hollywood is being inspired by satan to indoctrinate the world with to bring deception and confusion even to the people of God. To get us to question God and say as that snake did to Adam and Eve, “Did God really say?” By watching sin-filled entertainment that directly contradicts His Word, we are more than making mention of the gods of the world, we are partaking of them and promoting them with our money and view counts.

Not under condemnation but through His loving conviction by Him wanting me to walk in victory in all areas of my life, He’s teaching teaching me of His ways in this. We can’t have victory if we are giving a place (or places) to the thief in our lives.

The time is now. Because the time is short, and God wants to use YOU in a mighty way that will allow His anointing to flow unhindered. Give place to the devil NO MORE.

There are so many souls at stake. There are so many people sick, suffering, and captive to satan that need setting free. Don’t ally or align yourself with the enemy in any way, shape, or form any longer. Make a choice to serve Him and Him alone from this day forward. Be willing to lose friends, all of them even, if it means following Jesus this way – with all your heart, mind, body, soul, and strength.

Again, not desiring to walk this way with the Lord out of “walking on eggshells” with God but because I don’t want to give place to the devil, and that I love Jesus and want Him to have first place in every area of my life. Though I am in this world, I don’t want to be of this world. And we get to choose. I choose Jesus. Always. Every second of every day with His help. Emphasis with His help.

PRAYER 

Father, I want to walk in victory in all areas of my life and apart from You I can do nothing but THROUGH You I can do all things including living a sanctified, set apart, Holy life. I have eyes to see and ears to hear that the time is short. Our Lord Jesus could take us up at any time. It’s Your will that NONE would perish for eternity and You need fully surrendered sons and daughters who refuse to agree with the enemy and the ways of this word in ANY way to labor for the harvest and to minister to Your hurting and sick people. Holy Spirit I need you to live a set apart, not giving place to the devil life. Help me, Lord my God, every second of every day, I invite You to help me walk with You from glory to glory in Jesus’ name, amen.

IF WIND BENEATH MY WINGS WAS A CHRISTIAN SONG

About a year ago or so, I came across a church name called, House of Heroes, and it has greatly impacted me every since. Heroes for Jesus is exactly what we are called to be in this lost and dying world. He says we are cities on a hill, His ambassadors, His co-laborers, His very body. Inspired by the Word and the name of the church above, I wrote these lyrics.

God’s people are not called to be passive but active doers of the Word who are passionate about setting captives free. I pray these words bless and encourage you.

 

The original, “Wind Beneath My Wings” (sometimes titled “The Wind Beneath My Wings” and “Hero”) is a song written in 1982 by Jeff Silbar and Larry Henley.1

CHOOSE THE WAY - JESUS

“For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light,” (2 Corinthians 11:14).

The Word says we can choose life (of God) or death (of the devil).

The devil presents us with imitations, sometimes filled with half truths (still lies) for the sole purchase of ensnaring us and putting us in his chains to keep us from the one and only real life with Jesus with our one and only TRUE identity in Christ,

Imitations

Drugs, additions

Fornication, perversions

Getting someone to take on sickness as an identity

Lying, cheating, stealing

Gossiping, slandering

Any identity other than one in Christ in an imitation, a trap to keep us bound in chains. Even God’s children can fall for the enemy’s imitations by not living by our call to be in this world but not of this world.

Be set free and choose Jesus – the ONLY real life, your one true identity, your Peace, your Joy, your Rock, your Comfort, you all in all. Nothing else will fill the voids and the hearts of man. Partake of the Living Water, the Bread of Life, with whom you will never hunger and thirst again.

If you’ve never chosen Jesus to choose life, here’s how…

So, how do you have total assurance of eternal security with God? It’s a simple choice and act of humbling yourself and choosing Jesus by faith alone.

Admit you’re a sinner

Romans 3:23 – For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Romans 6:23 – For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Ephesians 2:8-9 – For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith —and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.

Believe in your heart

Romans 10:9-10 – That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

Call upon the name of the Lord

Romans 10:13 – For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

The Lord is says, “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2).

I pray if you haven’t called upon the name of the Lord that you don’t wait another second.

Said as a prayer

God, I’ve sinned against You, but I choose to turn from my sin now. By faith, I confess ‘Jesus is Lord’, believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead. I call upon the name of the Lord, and I am now saved and fully justified by God. My oil lamp is now forever full, and I will not have to lament the day my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ comes in Jesus’ name, amen.

Redestined-pinterest

REDESTINED

Ruth, a Moabitess, had lost it all, but despite losing it all, she chose God and gave Him her all. That decision changed her destiny.

While gleaning grain for her and her mother-in-law, Naomi, the favor of God was upon her for choosing Him. Boaz, the owner of the barley fields took notice of her, her reputation, and how she worked unto the Lord. To make it easier for her, he ordered his men to drop grain for her on purpose, so she could easily pick it up and have more than enough for her and Naomi. Aw, God knew we’d love a good romance.

Soon those very fields she beheld and worked so hard in would be hers too.

Fast forward, God used him to redeem her by making her his wife. Thus, Naomi was redeemed as well. When God answers prayer, He answers it far above what we can fathom.

Ruth didn’t know it at the time, but the moment she decided to choose the One true God as her own, she was placing herself in the lineage of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I love happy endings.

The card featured in the image above is for purchase as a printable download here

Read the book of Ruth here.

I also highly recommend the beautifully written fictionalized account of the book of Ruth by award winning author, Francine Rivers called,  Unshaken: Ruth (The Lineage of Grace Series #3). Rivers is an absolutely gifted by God writer, and I love her work. You can grab it through this link below should your heart desire it.

P.S. I know Redestined isn’t really a word, but it is now because I made it up. 🙂 It means with one choice for God, we can entirely change and redeem our destiny.

own worst enemy don't

God’s sons and daughters can allow the enemy to plant lies and accept them as their own, allowing them to also become rooted. Thus, the enemy can succeed in making a child of God their own worst enemy.

HOW TO WIN THESE BATTLES…

1. Know the Word for yourself, so you are always ready to answer the enemy with it to take every thought (lie) captive and make them obey Christ, the Word.

“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).

For example, when the mind is attacked with the lie of the enemy:

LIE: “You’re never going to be free from that situation.”

Answer with the promise of God, believing it as fact, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers us from them all,” (Psalm 34:19). Since this promise is for you, you can also boldly and confidently say, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers ME from them all.”

LIE: “You’ll always be sick and lame.”

Answer with a promise of God, believing it as fact, “Be Jesus’ stripes, I WAS healed.” Or, from Proverbs 4:20-22, “God’s Word is life and health to my body, so I speak His Word to my body and it has life and health.”

Note, the enemy will also use people around you to speak his lies, even God’s children, because they don’t know the Word for themselves.

Knowing the Word for ourselves doesn’t mean knowing it second hand through a pastor who may or may not even be interpreting the Word correctly depending on his willingness to fully submit to the Holy Spirit as his main Teacher and Guide through the Word.

We are blessed to live in a time where, as we learn the Word, we can easily search for any promise of God related to our situation online. It’s a great idea to print or write out the promises and put them where you can easily see them, pray and declare them.

2. Know there is an enemy seeking to steal, kill, and destroy, seeking whom he MAY devour.

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly,” (John 10:10).

If one is unaware to begin with of the reality of an enemy who isn’t into child’s play but is seeking to steal from, destroy, and kill us, then one can become the thief’s effortless, easily devoured prey.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour,” (1 Peter 5:8).

A child of God doesn’t have to become a MAY. What posture must we stay in to avoid the snake’s devouring? Sober. Vigilant. Readied with the Word. And God says we can be kept in perfect peace through it because our minds are fixed on Him.

“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You,” (Isaiah 26:3).

He wouldn’t say it if it were not possible. This will only happen when we get His Word, promises, and truth rooted in us.

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you,” (Philippians 4:8-9).

The Word of God fully equips us for everything the enemy throws at us.

3. Know born again believers are under a new covenant, established and paid in full by Jesus, with new and better promises and that we are no longer slaves but children of God.

“But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises,” (Hebrews 8:6).

God is not dealing with us as He did in the law under a blessing and cursing covenant. Jesus fully fulfilled the law for us and took all its curse upon Himself. E.g. The curse of the law included sickness which Jesus took all of on His body by His stripes.

“I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty,” (2 Corinthians 6:18).

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name,” (John 1:12).

“But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ,” (Galatians 4:4-7).

To summarize, it all boils down to knowing the Word for ourselves and walking with the Lord by the Spirit, knowing the full power of God dwells in every child of God.

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him,” (Hebrews 11:6).

That He is, is the Great I AM who rewards those who diligently – how? – diligently seek Him.

I pray this helps and blesses someone who really needs it. It is the calling of every believer to build up his sisters and brothers.

E2S-E2H with HWH-2

This year the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said that He is “raising up those whose only agenda is His agenda.”

While I have been in “pause and pray” mode for several weeks now, the Lord again reminded me of what He spoke. Isn’t that what every believer should want? I do. Especially as He made it a point to mention it to me. It must be vitally important to Him, His heart, and the work He longs to do through His children in the earth to prepare the end times church.

As a result, especially on social media, I am merging the ministry idea he gave me, E2S-E2H (eyes to see, ears to hear’ Matthew 13:16) and His Warring Handmaid with most of the emphasis on the ministry portion. But I will leave the website address as is so I don’t mess up the posts, etc.

I don’t want to have a ministry that says, “Look at me,” in any way, but look at Jesus. Look at what Jesus did and is doing in the earth in this time through His people. *in tears just typing those words*

There’s nothing wrong with someone having a site in their name of course but is something that is important to me and in line with the Word He gave me.

Of course, I still believe God wants us to share our testimonies to encourage others and build their faith but with a bent that gives Him all the glory. Him and His love, goodness, and mighty works. I believe every child of God is called into ministry to show the love of Jesus to others no matter what they do for a living. The lost and hurting are all around us.
