Get Excited About the Small Clouds – A Word of Encouragement

get excited about the small clouds

I’m parenting a child who is afflicted with autism and PANDAS and standing on the Word for his total healing. One of the most challenging symptoms is extreme inflexibility. This is not willful defiance. It’s fear based. His mind will not allow him to do something differently out of an extreme irrational fear it won’t work out. Lot’s of negative ‘what if’ scenarios.

Recently, he was unable to ‘flex’ on an important issue. This inability to adapt was causing him (and me) great anguish. He also said, “God doesn’t answer my prayers”.

Too long to explain, but I laid him down before the Lord in a different and even greater way than ever before, and I prayed the Word over it. In the flesh, in this natural realm, I was getting nowhere and wearing myself out to tears in my futile, reasoning attempts.

There are many other inflexibility issues still outstanding for him, but after I prayed my new prayer of surrender regarding my son, we had breakthrough on ONE thing he was utterly inflexible about yesterday (after almost 48 hours of hell on earth regarding it), and I am SO grateful to the Lord and EXCITED.

The Lord said to me, Remember Elijah and his excitement about the cloud as small as a man’s hand.

“So he (Elijah’s servant) went up and looked, and said, “There is nothing.”

And seven times he said, “Go again.” 

Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!”

So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.” 

Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain.”

~ 1 Kings 18:43-45

When his servant reported what he saw, that was it for him. He knew he had the breakthrough, and it was about to pour down rain. A heavy rain.

The Lord says, “Get excited about the small clouds in your life. Celebrate each one because the heavy rain is coming.”

I celebrate this breakthrough. This small cloud because I know the heavy rain is coming. God is our healer. It’s who He is.

In addition, seeds were planted in my son by the Lord that I can prayerfully build on:

  • Flexibility and change can bring blessings and rewards.
  • God gave him ‘eyes to see’ the good that came from change and nothing bad happened when he was able to adapt (even in the very small way it was).
  • God did answer his prayer on this pressing matter, but it just LOOKED different and not exactly how he asked but the answer was still great and showed him flexibility can be good.

This is a huge miracle for my son. Glory to You Lord!!! Glory to my God and my Savior!!!

2 17 2019 COME UP HIGHER

Regarding a Human Rights Campaign meeting in Charlotte, NC in 2007 to get radical bathroom laws passed, “The goal of these bathroom bills is to strip the rights of Americans…the president of the organization stood and he declared, ‘We will take this city. We will take this state. We will take this nation. And all of you right wing bigots that think you can stand against us, we’ve already got you. You’re laughing at our humor on prime time television in your living rooms every night’…Any self-identifying person, you could go into the bathroom, locker room, shower whatever. They never truly defined self-identification…and that’s fluid (according to these self-identifiers)…This opens the doors for sexual predators.” Fast forward to 2015, “From 2007 to 2015, eight years. While many in the Christian community sat silent and sat quietly, we watched the HRC bring this radical bathroom ordinance to Charlotte and all hell has broken loose ever since.” – Benhman Brothers. Remarks begin around the 50:10 mark. My brief emphasis in parentheses.

“We will take this city. We will take this state. We will take this nation. And all of you right wing bigots that think you can stand against us, we’ve already got you you’re laughing at our humor on prime time television in your living rooms every night.” – HRC President, NC. 

The Holy Spirit really convicted me (not condemned), convicted, and brought it all together for me regarding what I am doing as a Christ follower when I watch entertainment that is contributing to the spiritual demise of this nation, the indoctrination all people including the church and millions of our children.

When I heard the above quote by the HRC President, NC, regarding taking away our freedoms and forcing their wicked agendas on us and our children in such a demonic spirit of pride, it really shook me. 

The Lord said to me:

What does my Word say is needed for the devil to flee from you?

And the verse, “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you,” [James 4:7] immediately rose up into my spirit.

Can you see one big reason the enemy has infiltrated and weakened My church? 

Yes, Lord, I said. We haven’t submitted ourselves to You and forsaken entertainment that promotes the enemy, his agendas, and we’ve been contributing to the indoctrination of the masses by giving it our money, time, ratings, view counts on Netflix, and therefore, the devil HAS NOT fled from us. I see very clearly now that the enemy has been brilliant with making cute and cuddly TV and movie characters who promote his lies, that half-truth thing he always does to deceive to normalize sin and cause even the very elect to call what is good, evil, and what is evil, good.

What else?

I now see very clearly that because the church has not submitted and resisted the devil that we are also contributing to the eternal damnation of many, including potentially our own children. In the name of love, not offending others, and tolerance, we are sending a message that people should continue in their sins without eternal consequences. We are laughing at and enjoying entertainment that is causing them to choose eternal damnation and living a lie, an imitation life here, over Your gift of salvation, over true love, Yours. And we can sit baffled as to why the world is spiraling into derangement and darkness, when we’ve played along with the devil in it all.

I am calling My church higher, for full and true submission, so the devil will flee from it. Will you come up higher with Me? 

“If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.” Will you walk away from shows and characters you love and deny yourself and stop contributing the the eternal damnation of others. “Yes, Lord. Good-bye, Jack. Good-bye Rebbecca. Good-bye, Randall. Good-bye, Kate. Good-bye, Kevin.” Saying good-bye to This is Us because it is now being used to indoctrinate our children and normalize homosexuality using a child character on it, thus saying to all children watching, “This is okay. This evil is good. This thing that will keep you from from heaven is normal. This idol and god of making sexual identity your identity instead of Christ is the way.”

This is not religion. This is truth. And the homosexual agenda happens to be the subject of this post because of the video above that I recently viewed and what the Lord put on my heart is not just for me.

But let’s remember Proverbs 6:16-19 with my comments in brackets…

These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
A proud look, [those cliques IN churches that gossip, condemn, and look down on people]
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked plans, [See the latest news on how mega Pastor James MacDonald was just fired,  fell and fell hard? Part of the reason, he was devising wicked plans. How could a man of God not remember that everything planned in secret would be brought into the light? (Luke 8:17) As if God’s eyes were not on him every moment. We must all be discerning lest the enemy cause any of us to fall.]
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren. [Happens in the church ALL the time. Like God’s people are just ready and waiting to pounce on each other to condemn].

“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea” (Mark 9:42).
“If your brother, the son of your mother, your son or your daughter, the wife of your bosom, or your friend who is as your own soul, secretly entices you, saying, ‘Let us go and serve other gods,’ which you have not known, neither you nor your fathers” (Deuteronomy 13:6).

Prayer

Father, that Your church come up higher and no longer contribute to the spiritual demise of others and this nation. That we submit ourselves to You fully, resist the devil, so he will flee from us always. Grace us with the strength to say no to the lies of the enemy and to stop contributing financially or in any way to the eternal downfall of others. Remind us continually that we are in a spiritual battle with an enemy that hates us and never plays fair. Help Your church get its act together as we are losing souls every day because of our inability to follow You according to Your Word. And that all those who have been deceived and confused and have had their identities stolen by the enemy come to know the Truth, gain their TRUE identities in Him, and the best love of their lives through Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Praying for those still in need of Jesus

If your identity has been stolen by the enemy and you are living the homosexual lifestyle, struggle with gender confusion, etc. God loves you, I love you, and Jesus died for You to give you your true identity. I pray you accept His love for you today, that your give it all to Him. He loves you, will teach you, and show you the way. Also know that the church as a whole is not the perfect representation of God because many do not fully submit themselves to God, and that is not on God, it is on them for settling for less and brining damage to His name. Get to know Him for yourself and you will see, feel His love, His presence, and be set free from your pain, anger, and torment. Yes, it is a process, but He will walk you through it all. God is love and mercy and His arms are open to you.

It’s Not Hate. It’s ‘NO’ to Indoctrinate. True Hate is Letting People Perish Without the Truth and calling it Love.

Pray for the Lost Instead – the Holy Spirit Can Reach and Do What We Cannot

pray for them instead

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

HEBREWS 4:12

God’s people, we can use our social media time-lines and feeds to pray for the lost instead of pouncing on them.

Who better to reach them but the Holy Spirit?

We can share the truth in love. What is the truth? God’s Word.

I see so many Christ followers attacking the lost just as an unbeliever would. That’s repaying evil for evil. And the Lord commands us not to do this. It’s also entirely ineffective.

If we are in a debate with someone, we need to infuse our words with His Word because it is living and active and reaches to the heart and thoughts because it IS God [John 1:1; 14].

Prayer

Father, that Your people (the church) would love their neighbors as they love themselves and remember they too were once lost and then found, once dead and now made alive because of Your Son, Jesus. Thank You for this gift and Your amazing grace. Holy Spirit remind Your people of this truth, so we are used of You to share Your truth the way You did. That Your people would use Your Word, reach out in love and concern for the eternal state of the lost, and pray for them knowing You have the power to reach and draw them. Keep Your church from getting into the flesh and the need to be right which is rooted in pride when what is important to You is that we reach the lost, not drive them further into the kingdom of darkness. O God, help Your people. In Jesus’ name, amen.

The NAME Above Every Name – A Prayer for Healing

The name above every name - a prayer for healing

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

PHILIPPIANS 2:9-11

Prayer

Lord, we rebuke every affliction attacking, (name), at the root and command them to go and never return in the name of Jesus. Grace us to keep our eyes solely on You, Lord Jesus, and You ARE the Word.

Let the storms around, (name), melt like wax in Your presence. All afflictions have a name and You are the NAME above all names so we squash every bit of sickness, disease, the demonic affecting, (name) in JESUS’ name, amen.

How Abortion is Connected, Must be Abolished, and How to Pray on the Offensive to Retake the Land from the Enemy

abortion is one big link.png

Abortion MUST be abolished, and the church cannot afford to look away any more. This nation is in crisis. 

Abortion is one big link in a chain lowering the drawbridge of the now very steep slippery slope that has allowed the enemy, that is the Devil, to have his way in our land.

Masquerading as an angel of light, Hitler came in promising to be Austria’s savior. They were hurting and people were unemployed and hungry. Desperate and liking what they were hearing about receiving free things (sound familiar?), ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany making him their ruler.

Little by little, he gave them things and took all their rights and introduced all sorts of wickedness. Hitler dehumanized the Jews, the disabled, and whomever else he deemed dispensable. Soon Hitler hauled away the special needs children, experimented on them, and killed them.

Dehumanizing any people group at any stage of life creates a domino effect of devaluing whichever people group those in power deem dispensable. 

The choice to expand abortion laws in our land not only has evil, natural consequences, but also spiritual ones. Just as Adam and Even forfeited over their land and rights to the devil with their choices, so do we as a nation forfeit over more land to the powers of darkness when we allow wickedness. When we elect those who do not value life.

There are demonic spirits behind abortion and other agendas that must be broken through fervent prayer and fasting by the church UNTIL the power of darkness are broken and we RETAKE the land from the enemy.

Let’s pray…

Prayer

Lord, we take authority over every principality and power of darkness, every demonic spirit behind abortion, humanism, eugenics, population control, devaluing life, pride and elitism, evolution and all these spirits that are exalting themselves against Your knowledge and truth.

We break ALL their power, uproot them in Your name and destroy them by Your blood. The passive ways and ignorance even in the church is mind blowing. People in the church fear man’s opinion of them more than they fear You. They bow to peer pressure so much so regarding abortion and other issues, they just go along with what their friends say. Holy Spirit bring conviction to the church about their fear of man.

We live for eternity and not for this temporal life. It’s better to please You than please and fear man. Fear of people’s opinions is a big reason why we are where we are in the name of grace and tolerance when true love is sharing Your truth so none would perish. People are perishing and going to hell because we are too much grace and not enough, Jesus’ arms are open, repent, be saved, and go and sin no more.

Lord, move on the church in such a way that a mighty spiritual army rises up to fast, pray, and do Your Word, so abortion is abolished, so we retake the land from the enemy.

It’s in Jesus’ name we pray, amen.

Warriors for God, please share so prayers stretch everywhere.
