He Speaks

22490002_493342864367329_1895620145136625666_n
Iniquity, sin, mine and the sin of others. Let it have no space to speak.
In this recovery, I wake daily saying what my father spoke over me every day I lived at home. It is a beautiful day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. I rise to greet what waits for me, this is to carry my cross, my daily bread awaits.
All we are given is today, yesterday a memory, tomorrow not promised. Jesus, let us rock it for your Kingdom, for all it is worth.  Selah~ He is my Peace, the Prince of, My Savior.
I read Psalm 145 before bed and when I woke. It tells me how to enter this new Day I am given.
Meditate on Abba’s works, Tell of His Power, Proclaim His deeds, Celebrate His abundant goodness, Joyfully sing of His Righteousness.
The Lord is full of compassion on ALL that He has made. His saints speak of His Might, of the Glorious splendor of His Kingdom, It is Everlasting.
The Lord is faithful on ALL of His Promises *(learn what they are). He is Loving to ALL He made. He upholds ALL who fall, He uplifts all who are bowed down. Be water, get low.
All look to Him, He feeds at the proper time and opens His Hand and satisfies the desires of every living thing. The Lord is righteous in ALL His Ways, loving toward ALL He made *(He made you).
The Lord is near to ALL who call on Him. To all who call on Him in truth. He fills the desire of those who fear Him, hears their cry and saves them. The Lord watches over ALL who love Him. But He will destroy the wicked. My mouth will speak His praise. Let every creature praise His name.
This morning the nitpicking, the angry words, the hostile tone of voice attacked immediately. This one who shared my bread, accepted my love now spits at me. I said, I love you as the door was closing, I heard a grumble and slam.
I look up to Jesus who is right here, “I am not going to cry Lord”, I say. But the hot tears hit my face. To my knees I fall and He holds me. This is not the first time. I live in a gauntlet. Fiery things are thrown daily, I wear my armor proudly and know how to use my sword.
When you are caught between love your enemy and flee the persecution there is but one place to go. As I kneel weeping not over my pain but this persons ignorance to love. And a warm being slides onto my lap. Grace. She is a soft place to fall this little dog.
 Thank God I believe in Providence. Every loss that slayed me has been restored and given back better. Perhaps this man will too. I wait patiently on my Lord focusing my mind on being the vessel of honor my Lord calls me to be. To be effective witness of the love that I serve with my all.
My children have always been the speakers in my life, today was Charles. A son grafted into my life who I love. From his corner of the earth he askes me, “what does the book of Philemon mean mom?”
I gave him my answer which was” it is about forgiveness”. Knowing full well this is my cue to read it and digest this Word. And I did….
It tells me to be ACTIVE in sharing my faith.
So that I have and give, a full understanding of every good thing in Christ.
Love gives great joy and encouragement, it refreshes the hearts of the saints.
I could give orders in Christ and be bold but I APPEAL on the basis of love.
Ones who are wrong can become sons,  we love them as such as they become our heart.
Jesus can give them back from slavery to evil making them dear brothers. Stand in the gap for them, Ask them to refresh my heart in confidence of their obedience.
And I wait…..
on my Lord, His time, His Way.

Dear reader you are infinitely loved, I pray that you seek Him while He can be found.

Why Jesus

20032087_10211092913971909_2695812644964852628_n
 On days like today. Burning with pain, physical and emotional. I quote the Psalmist, to whence to I go for my help. Only the Lord.
One of my favorite places to rest is the book of Hebrews, I will share my own relfections and I pray over this post that you dear reader come to understand the lover of your soul
I was born a lover, but everyone I have loved has hurt me deeply. Yes, everyone. I throw none under any bus but can tell you the pain has shaped me until I was reshaped by real love. I had to wait for the Lord to show me things and teach me. I learned this mortal love and it seems like it is nice but it’s failure rate is 100%, God knows no failure, only redemption in His Son Jesus who came to save us all.
We are taught in God’s Word about Jesus, in reading the Gospels our spirits can walk alongside Him, see how he lived, how he treated others and how He obeyed the Father, He said yoke to me, follow me, learn from me for my yoke is easy and light, not like the burdens of the religious laws and rules.
Hebrews says we should all seek to obey Him but why you may ask?
Jesus said the Father is the one who will draw you to Jesus, pray and ask for His presence. It is His Holy Spirit who guides us all through this life.
Jesus is sinless, we all fall short and are sinful. Once we realize this we must press on, for once enlightened and then going back  simply crucifies our Lord over and over, this grieves God. He says do not become lazy, imitate those who are in me by faith and patience to inherit what is promised.
Jesus is our hope, draw near to God for there is a better Hope in Him. He is the guarantee of a better covenant, He saves completely all who come to God through Him, for He lives to intercede for those who come. How beautiful is that news! 
This ministry Jesus recived is far superior to the old covenant. He alone is our Mediator, He is superior and this is all founded on a better promise. God found fault and made a new covenant. New is that laws of God are to be written on our hearts and minds. We have a conscience! God said all will know me from least of them to the greatest, I will forgive their wickeness and remember their sins no more.
Gift and sacrifice will never clear the conscience of a sinner, only the blood of Christ does this, only Jesus.
 When Jesus returns it is not to bear more sin, we are called to leave it. If you do not know what is sinful in your life pray and ask to be shown. The beleiver should live by faith in God not faith in this world. Do not allow a double mind.  His second coming is simply to collect what is His. He is bringing salvation to us before God takes up His justice.
Draw near to God with a heart that is sincere and full of faith! Be excited! Hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, spur one another on to doing good deeds, for they will know us by our love. Obey His commandments and realize Jesus brought with Him ethics and morals of the Kingdom of God, you may go forth and live them right now. God is very clear on what will NOT enter this Kingdom to come.
Encourage one another as you see that Day approach. If we keep on sinning there is no sacrafice for it. Only fearful expectation of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.
Do not treat the blood of Jesus as unholy. He is precious. Do not insult the spirit of Grace.
The world system and it’s educational material is ungodly.
Run from it. Don’t beat your body for it, Run like you will get a prize for eternal life is a prize, we have no idea what God has prepared but I can taste it. He loves us so. Give your all. Jesus is the author of our faith, He made it! He is the perfector of it, ask for more! He has Joy set before Himand He endured the cross and all it’s scorn and shame.
Consider He who endured this same opposition we do and did not grow so weary as to lose. He stayed in it for us. We owe Him our love, lives and loyalty. To give Him all of of time, treasure and talent.
You can live for you and lose or live for Him and win. No matter what we all die this mortal life. There is more, much more. I pray I have inspired you. I leave you with this to ponder.
Live for others and find your life. If you are in the way, die to you and live for Him. Selah~

Wellness

If there is one thing in the Word of God I can relate to it is the vein of suffering. who but Jesus knows the cruel of this world and the oppression of the evil one but Him. Him who suffered and die to strip the evil realm of it’s power. Only by His name can we overcome.
images
We are told in God’s Word that evil desires war against our soul. One of my biggest obstacles was the desire for optimal health and wellness. Born into a sick body, suffering reaching it’s pinnacle in me to the point of wanting to die. However in the gospel there is no promise of ease or perfection of flesh.
I read the Bible and prayed and prayed until I came to find relief, and the relief is from the supernatural. God changed my mind and how I see.
I take this life I am given serious, not for me to gain favor from you but to save you, for HIs glory, not mine. I realize I may receive scorn but if one person is helped then so be it. I state again, you hatred for me does not move me, nor does praise.
First of all Hebrews 11:6 says to bring faith to God, you must believe He exists and will save you, clean this mess up in your life.
Over and over we are told to pray against this darkness, be devoted, watchful and thankful. If you do not understand the darkness, ask. Jesus is God in flesh, is our Mediator and is Omniscient, encompasses all things. Is Omnipresent, is everywhere. He is Omnipotent, all powerful, nothing too difficult. Jesus has been sending demons back to the pit from the beginning.
In Him we can discern and defeat because Colossians 2:15 says He stripped the demonic realm of it’s powers, He triumphed over it all on the cross, Amen.
In Luke 19:10 Jesus made it clear what He came for, to seek and save what is lost. If you are feeling lost today that is you.
Getup and take charge of your soul and do not allow this to dominate you anymore.
In Acts 8 Phillip is in Samaria in the Spirit and he did miraculous things. It says with shrieks, evil spirits came out of many, and paralytics and cripples were healed. Infirmity is the work of the fallen nature, the sarx in us.
In todays world many of us seek wrong. We are told to not complain and not to argue, to not be anxious and worry. The mortal help I sought seemed to heighten my fear for it divided my faith. This is all the work of the enemy. 1 John 3:8 says that Jesus came to destroy the devils work, why do we allow it to rest on us in dividing us?
I will close with Titus 2:11-13, 14-15 God’s Grace teaches us to say not to worldly passions and live self controlled lives, while we wait on hope. Teach to encourage and rebuke with all authority.
People have survived for centuries on faith alone in the most challenging situations. I know what we face, but I know my Lord, I am confident in what I say. Jesus wants out faith to be pure, you can trust Him to heal your broken heart and soul and in that your body will cease to be loud. Yes you may continue to struggle, I do, and this we are told to do as good soldiers. Peter told us those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good. Can you come up out of your self pity to serve others? Each of us is called to discipleship but perhaps your condition is in your way, Let me challenge you. If you want to change the world for God go home and love your family. As a wife and mother, a leader and lover and teacher, I know I must rise early and meet with Abba and ask God to work with me so that I can work with them. Sometimes they are the hardest to love, but He governs as I seek a pure and reverent life as the Word says. Ladies we are not victims, Jesus loves you. Men have failed and will continue to fail but we are overcomes, we will be served well if we simply obey and do what is right, and do not give in to fear. Daughters of Sarah.
In this there is healing that comes to me. He heals my heart and it encompasses much. I may die from the issues of flesh but know it is not the end. What am a striving for, to save my own life? That would be foolish. He already did that, is doing that every day as He reveals the need for repentance of the empty things I chase.
And the God of Grace who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make your strong, firm and steadfast. Clothe yourself in humility this day and evermore for God opposes the proud but He gives grace to the Humble. Selah~ He is my peace

Creation

8bfe711fedeb2863443cf3fbcce3a55e
Creation exists all around us, the things that God made, not all this stuff. The world has a pulse rate. Tesla knew that,  electricity is in us and all around us. That said HAARP is a power harnesser and does a lot of freaky stuff in the atmosphere. They are hurting the ozone not global warming.  All of the Electro Magnetic fields have a current and said currents have an effect on human bodies.
What we do as humans matters a lot. There are no small things, everything is measured out and things are simply done or undone.  God provides us with opportunity in every day and we either walk out faith or fear. We live in consequences, it is said choose this day a blessing or a curse.
Ideally, there should be no anxiety in our exchanges with others in our sphere of influence. If anxiety enters your sphere back away from it. Think about what you are doing.
Working outside of fear, this should be as natural as breathing if you truly believe in God, truly believe Jesus saves you are truly seeking His face and finding out what pleases Him. If you are still in the garden forming a cloak of leaves to cover things with, please begin again, you owe it to yourself. God’s offers are free and eternal as long as it is today. As long as you are breathing.
Work in a sphere of possibility, for all things are possible with God.
Not some things, not certain things, all things. According to His will and Way, Yes is the answer. Find out what pleases Him. 
Every day do what you can do to respectfully further the truth and do it with confidence. Don’t keep trying to lift burdens to heavy for you, let someone help you and do it for you, or do it with them.
God said He put His laws on our hearts and wrote them on our minds, we all have a sense of how to treat others. Let us encourage others to love at all times. Most of the commandments are summed up in love. If I love you, I don’t kill you or do character assassinations on you, I don’t lie to you or about you, I don’t want what you have, Including your wife or husband, if I love God I honor the Sabbath, I don’t put other things before God or I slip on all other points. I honor your life. I put no stumbling block under your feet. I treat you fairly with kindness… I have integrity, I offer fidelity and I am loyal.
Loving one another and serving God is something billion of other people are also doing. One Way exists to Heaven, through a Risen Savior and Sacrifice and Jesus is His Name.
He is calling His Church, God’s children are His bride, we are gathering. We are not waiting for an organization or pastor to lead us, we already are here. I need no tag from culture, it is called the Human Race, God names us His Beloved.
The Unity God desires is all under  and in Jesus. Not all are. Many claim a label here given by a religion but this is relationship, to Heaven. Still holding earth identity is deadly.
38 Special said hold on loosely, but do’t let go. True, keep enough of a grasp on loving the lost but be ready to depart and aware of that fact. Jesus said “Watch’ three thousand years or so ago. Clocks and calendars do not belong to God they are of man.
I leave you with this. Fear is the adversaries easiest method of controlling behavior. Propaganda is a deep well to mine, I suggest you dear reader begin to understand that history has largely been lies and manipulations to get an obedient fooled group who does not know they have been fooled. Nice trusting humans, easy prey for someone who seeks to dominate. Germany did not see it coming either. From an economic standpoint the world is in dire straits.
Wars are wrong. Jesus came and said be peacekeepers. Wars were of man not the Kingdom of God. War causes traumatic stress in all parties involved and impacted. They give pills to wipe away bad memories but they actually can become deeper repressed and driven deeper into the person. Psychosis is the end result. It is not what God intended for the First Fruits on His coming Kingdom.
Dear Christian, prayer is the only way to stay clear of the deception to come. When the Abomination that causes desolation is present we can feel it in the air.
Look around, you see greed and a lot of human power but realize that is all run in the realm of the prince and power of the air.
Soon they will begin to preach peace and so many want it. But realize this, every egg has to hatch, every seed must burst forth. Every forest floor scarred by fire becomes green again as will life renew. We serve a Creator who Redeems, Resurrects, Renews and Restores, let us never forget that. He loves Creation, and His people. The Bible says God will take accounting from ever man and animal. It also says God will destroy those who destroy the earth. Jesus said He is coming back to collect His and destroy all that can be shaken. Hold your faith.
Please read your Bible, pray on what I said, but please consider my words. I am not here for fame, I simply call from the wall to tell you what I can see.
Much love~
Marla
