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.

unbelief and the words of our mouth

The Lord brought together a word last night, 12/7/2019, regarding the oh so fun, yet necessary topic of unbelief and the words of our mouths.

I was talking with the Lord yesterday and asked, “Am I REALLY hearing You talk to me about unbelief almost non-stop? Unbelief, unbelief, unbelief, is what I’m hearing lately.” I didn’t hear back by the Spirit right then that time, but when I got in my car a few hours later, I turned the radio on and within a minute, I heard a woman say this on the radio, “A person we don’t want to imitate is Zacharias because of his unbelief, but we do want to imitate his wife, Elizabeth, because she stayed in faith. She believed the word of the Lord.” (Somewhat paraphrased but accurate).

“But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John. And you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth. For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb. And he will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God. He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,’ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. And Zacharias said to the angel, “How shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years. And the angel answered and said to him, “I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and was sent to speak to you and bring you these glad tidings. But behold, you will be mute and not able to speak until the day these things take place, because you did not believe my words which will be fulfilled in their own time,” (Luke 1:13-22).

Elizabeth and Zacharias’s son, John’s birth was extremely important because he was being born to prepare the way of our Lord Jesus.

Because of Zacharias’s unbelief, the Lord temporarily muted him because the words of our mouths are so important (revelation from the Spirit from this situation) and unbelief is very serious and blocks people from receiving from the Lord. He muted him to keep him from speaking unbelief over the miraculous pregnancy of his son, possibly so the enemy wouldn’t use him to prevent conception or destroy the birth with unbelief. Only God knows all the depths as to why, but it was very important that Zacharias NOT be able to speak any unbelief over the conception and pregnancy.

The Word says in Psalm 138:2, “For You have magnified Your Word above all Your name,” and He told me to pray that all His people receive this verse as deep revelation knowledge and take it seriously.

Why is the fact that God magnifies His Word above His name so important? Because His Word says:

“Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief,” (Matthew 13:58).

Unbelief blocks the works of God in our lives because He says so. God will neither violate His Word, the one He exalts above His name, nor a person’s free will choice to reject His Word and will for his/her life because of unbelief. BUT He’s bringing this to our attention for a VERY GOOD reason because He desires to bless us and receive from Him so much.

It’s His will to help us with any unbelief (through the Word, prayer, and sometimes fasting), so we CAN receive from Him. He wants us to receive His promises and for His children to walk in the fullness of their callings as sons and daughters. Hallelujah! We praise You, Lord!

“A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; From the produce of his lips he shall be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit,” (Proverbs 18:20-21).

Using Zacharias, the Lord is telling us that unbelief and the words of our mouths affect our lives and the outcomes to our prayers and receiving from Him. That His people are not taking Him for His Word on these matters, and He loves us and wants us to.

We look at Proverbs 18:20-21 above and see its GREAT magnitude in our lives:

We are satisfied, filled, and eat of the RESULTS of what we say from our mouths. Are we speaking life (His Word)? Death and unbelief and killing our ability to receive from the Lord based on His Word which He will not violate?

We need not fear but only surrender and ask for help with any unbelief in our lives and with the words of our mouths. We must also prayerfully read and know the Word for ourselves to have more faith and less and less unbelief because the more we know His Word, the more we know His will, and the more we know His will, the more faith we will have, and the more we can pray without unbelief.

I am praying for myself for these things and taking this word from the Lord very seriously and praying it over us and all of God’s people.

How the Lord recently led me to pray for Keanu Reeves.

A beautiful example of the truth of God’s Word in Luke 15, “Jesus goes after the one.”

These are some notes (very) scratched down notes so I wouldn’t forget what to say

  • 5 random dreams
  • Are you w/o understanding? So I was a LOT slow, and it took God 5 dreams for me to ask Him, Why do I keep having these dreams about Keanu Reeves. His answer, “I want you to pray for him.”
  • Cookies on my computer. Watched a couple videos. But I don’t believe much of what I see or read about people online so purposely not researching KR. Just praying for him to know God as Father and as I pray for my son, mother, and family.
  • I’d say to anyone who doesn’t know Jesus to not allow people to be a reflection of who God is. We are all works in progress and overall many who call themselves followers of Jesus don’t always represent Him all that well. Poorly even. That I didn’t understand or have any revelation about God until I put my faith in Jesus. THEN my eyes and ears were open.
  • This is such a clear example of how Jesus seeks after the one and calls us to pray for Him to send laborers to the harvest which is a big part of my prayers of course.
  • Read Luke 15; Romans 10:9-10; Rev 3:20

Are you negotiating with the enemy for your inheritance? God wants you to stand!

The enemy will steal from us what we don’t know what is ours in Christ. Don’t negotiate with that thief any more. A powerful Word from the Lord.

Listen to Podcast Episode 2

“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power,” Ephesians 1:17-19.

“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to STAND,” (Ephesians 6:13).

PAUSE EVERYTHING AND PRAY

This is for some of you and you will know by the Spirit what “everything” refers to (as in not literally everything to the point that family/needs are neglected). 

It’s a set apart time of prayer and seeking Him in the Word to hear clearly from God on the things you are currently working on, so you know what to prioritize right now as well as each day.

This time of prayer, maybe one day, a few days, a week, etc. is to:

  • Bring clarity, wisdom, and discernment.
  • To give you eyes to see where the distractions are, things that you are working on that are not of God or not for now but later.
  • Recalibrate with God on matters in your life.
  • To show you where you might be wasting your time (e.g. It’s time to shake the dust off your feet for some people you’ve tried to help because they won’t submit to God, obey Him, seek Him themselves or take any responsibility on their part; does not include special needs people of course. The Holy Spirit will show you).
  • To prepare the way for your God assignments.
  • Bring His will for the situation into the earth as it is in heaven but won’t happen according to His best for you without this prayer time
  • Bring favor, break strongholds, move obstacles, bring divine connections, bring needed provision, etc.
  • Possibly reveal a “new thing” to you or new assignment.

In your personal, set apart prayer time, God may show show you more and open up specifically to you, by His Holy Spirit, additional reasons why this time is needed. 

Thank You, Lord, for Your faithfulness and kindness towards us to lead us in all seasons what we are to do in order to fulfill our purposes and plans for our lives and for Your glory. We bless Your Holy name. All glory and honor and praise to You, O God!

WHEN GOD REMOVES PEOPLE

Recently, due to a sister’s gross misinterpretations of the intentions of my heart towards her, she refuses to speak to me and blocked me on a social media account. 

Long story short, she posted a quote by someone else, then commented what seemed to be her confusion about it. And me, wanting to be helpful, decided to message her with what I thought would be helpful, relevant information, and would protect her from pain and seeing God in a wrong light about something.

Yikes!

Sadly, she interpreted it as a criticism of her directly and not simply commentary and the help I thought she needed about the quote she posted about, and the more I tried to make it better, thinking I was still being helpful – ugh – the worst I made it. She was very upset and hurt even though, heart before God, it was only my intentions to help.

She said I should have asked her (as in) if she needed help. I told her she was right.

Takeaway 

If you’re a helpful person like me and someone seems like they are reaching out for help, re-ask if he/she is truly asking or needs help to give them a chance to say yes or no. It could save a lot of trouble.

I should have prayed  for wisdom and discernment before answering her initial reply where she misinterpreted me criticizing her, but I felt so bad about unintentionally doing so that I replied immediately.

Wrong move. Sorry Jesus. In all my ways acknowledge Him. So I failed on that.

Things seemed clarified and resolved until I received several more very upset replies from her later falsely accusing me and reading negative things that weren’t there into my words and then once again saying I was criticizing her, and then she added, “coming at her,” and of me having fury.

Silly Me

I still tried to fix it, explain, and thinking I was being helpful but continued to make it worse.

Takeaway

Once again, if I had paused and prayed, I would have been able to see the enemy, author of confusion, at work in all this, and then answered the next day after I’d spent time praying about it, for her, and myself. And I would have been able to discern and have eyes to see that she’d already “felt” attacked (false imaginations) from the get-go and nothing I said or did could fix it.

His Mercies are New Every Morning

I, of course, was hurt and upset, and brought it before the Lord, because, even though I unintentionally hurt her feelings, she also falsely accused me as above and more. But I had clarity and peace about it all the next day because truly my heart was right in the matter before her and the Lord.

When I Prayed, the Lord Showed Me 

That even though my friend is going through a time of pain and grief, that it’s no excuse to falsely accuse people and that she should have put into practice what she was so adamant about preaching to me. That just as I should have asked her if she needed help and clarification before I assumed she did, that she should have also asked me if I was criticizing her, if I was coming at her, and if I was filled with fury towards her before she assumed I was. That her pain and grief blinded her to only be able to see her own feelings without regard to mine.

I couldn’t see any of these things before I prayed because I was just hurt, shocked, and confused. Of course, I already apologized multiple times during the conversations (before she cut me off) and forgave her before the Lord.

God Also Gave Me Eyes to See

In light of our two years of a very good friendship filled with love, support, and kindness, she so easily and readily forgot my true character and harshly assumed the worst about me.  The Lord knows that people who automatically assume the worst about me is one thing I cannot abide in relationships as this behavior and mindset is too similar to my earthly father’s who passed away a few years ago.

My father was so self-destructive, he drove the people closest to him away because he carried a terrible spirit of offense. No one could say anything to him, have a different opinion than him, tell him that his actions were hurting us without him feeling offended and then attacking us for things which there was no reason. He was blind to everyone else’s feelings in situations but his own. An “always walking on eggshells” relationship, and horribly, at times, that led him to threaten to harm us, raise his hand to hit us, and had hit my other a few times, etc.

Again, I couldn’t see any of this until I went to the Lord with it.

A Sign and Blessing in Disguise

After she blocked me, after all the crazy and confusion, within a few minutes, I saw a post on Facebook that read, “Not everyone that leaves our life was meant to stay. We can’t know how each person who walks into our life-what part they may play in it. It may be a moment, forever, a season, etc. but each one has a purpose. We will understand in Heaven.”

So, it’s a blessing in disguise that she cut me off because I cannot handle any relationships that even come close to how I had to approach my father, in fear, always worrying I’d offend him, make him angry, about all his false imaginations, and him most often assuming the worst about me instead of the best, etc. then getting blasted with false accusations based on those false imaginations.

Let Them Go & Bless Them

Since God allowed me to see that “sign” above within a few minutes about “not everyone that leaves our life was meant to stay,” I truly believe in this case that I may not hear from her for awhile, and if I do will have minimal contact, nothing above courtesies unless the Lord gives me peace for more because I’ve spent too many years of my past in dysfunctional relationships that God delivered me from to purposely allow it back.

So, Lord, I bless this sister of mine and wish her well, and I pray for her emotional healing and well being and for the root causes of her perceptual dysfunctions to also be healed. I messed up badly in not seeking You first before I responded to my sister, and I pray You bring this to my remembrance as often as needed, so I don’t repeat a mistake like this. And I break the spirit of offense off her and tell it to go now in Jesus’ name, amen.

P.S. No she doesn’t follow my blog. I mention it to friends to follow just once, they usually forget, and I never mention it again.

Welcome Episode – E2S-E2H (EYES TO SEE – EARS TO HEAR), based on Matthew 13:16, “But blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear.”

I’ll podcast various messages, teachings, prayers, words, etc. as the Holy Spirit leads me.

 

I’ve been praying and seeking the Lord about this since July 2019. These are my initial notes about it here

Please pray this podcast newbie and that the Lord carves out time for me to continue on with consistently.  Thank you and God bless.
