That which we have heard, that which we have seen, that which we have looked upon, and handled with our own hands, of the Word of Life...these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. 1 John 11v.1
Touch people with the Word of Life during this Christmas season! Lay your hands on the love-starved, God-starved people of our day. Women on women and men on men, in pure and discreet ways. They won't even know you're doing it, but they will be changed. As a believer, your hands have touched the Word that gives life. You are a carrier of power. Let virtue flow out from you in your daily encounters. Ask in faith believing and release the anointing on purpose during this busy, people-crowded season. It is not all going to be about you talking! ( I know you talk a good talk!) What if they are from Bolivia or Burma? Your gospel is not in word only, but in power and in the Holy Ghost and in much assurance-. (1 Thess. 1v.5)
Then the presidents and the princes sought to find occasion against Daniel ..., but they could find none...neither was there any error or fault found in him. Daniel 6v.4 (KJV); Pilate said to them, "Take Him yourselves and crucify Him, for I find no fault in Hi." John 19v.6 (AMP)
The Bible says that jealousy is " as cruel as death" (SS 8v.6). Yesterday I had the word " jealousy" as the Word of the Day, but I was led differently. Now this morning it has come up in my spirit again for you. Today's verses reveal the complete failure of the schemes and plots of the jealous. Take comfort in this, and be confident that no weapon formed against you will prosper. God's Hand of Purpose for your life will not be blocked by the evil actions of those who are jealous of you. Your Purpose will prosper in spite of their hocus-pocus. Remain innocent as dove and wise as a serpent. Don't be ignorant of their devices and strategies, but fear not. Intensify your prayer, regular fasting and the excellence of your Love Walk. Today call it the way you want it to be, Say this: They Find No Fault In Me!
At the end of the seven years, I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted up my eyes to heaven, and my understanding and the right use of my mind returned to me....I was reestablished and still more greatness than before was added to me. Dan. 4v.34/36 (AMP)
Father, You did it for a heathen king and you will surely do it for a Blood-bought son or daughter of the King of kings: RESTORE! Restore understanding and the right use of her mind to Aunt Susie, to Uncle Bill in the nursing home. Restore the youth of my brain, like the eagle's, so that my mind is sharp, powerful and clear! Undo the residue of medication, radiation or chemical imbalances - undo the work of the evil one and give us sound minds all the days of our lives.
Therefore I esteem right all Thy precepts concerning everything. Ps. 119v.128 NAS; Every word you give me is a miracle word- how could I help but obey? Ps.111v.129 The Message Bible.
Do we? I mean, really? Do we esteem God's Word to be right concerning everything or just some things? The world puts vaseline on the lens of our focus and we can get a little fuzzy. Perhaps you know young people who are living together. They might ask you to pray about their jobs, new house or baby. I pray, but I also say: the Truth. You can't be blessed until you get right with God. Or maybe it is your daughter's best friend and the shower is at your house. Show love, but serve Truth. God will give you a private moment when you can share openly. When that door opens, don't water it down. Let them see and hear that you esteem right all of God's Word concerning them!
Father: Every word you give me is a miracle word: how can I help but obey today!
At 1:00am I heard my mother and went in to check on her. Tummy upset! I took care of things in about an hour and then more tummy upset! So I got her up and into the bathroom for about 2 hours. I ran out of something and had to go to the car where I had an extra, defective pack that I was planning to return to the store. Had to use it anyway, and as we did the defective cotton lining spread clinging pieces of cotton like snow all over everything. Then I remembered my Pastors' sermon from Sunday. Praise God in All Things! I praised Him for this fake snow I would have to clean up. I felt my attitude shift a little as I did. So I thought I could put on a pot of coffee while waiting for my mom to feel better. Why I could roll my hair at 2:41am! As I thanked God for the new day and I felt myself brighten, the same symptoms that bothered Mom began to hit me! I have to admit I turned off the praise and turned on the kill-the-devil warfare. But I got back to it. My Pastor said Praise navigates my way into the Perfect Plan of God.
Let Praise Lead You out of the Pit and into the Palace today!
Blessings on your week of taking higher ground! (Remember Christmas Now !)
The heavens are the works of Your hands. They will perish, but You remain, They will grow old and wear out like a garment. Like a mantle (thrown about one's self) You will roll them up and they will be changed...But You remain the same. Heb.1 v.10-12 (AMP)
If He can whip the heavens, He can whip the deadlines, restrictions, computer errors and misunderstanding with your best friend. If He can roll up the sky like a pork tenderloin slice hor d'ouerve, believe me He can handle the crushing weight of the horrendous stuff we see on the News and we cover, cover in prayer.
Recently, it has been like a tennis match. The devil sends one flaming dart over the net and God's side gets the save. But this morning I sensed a shift coming. Mounting pressure getting a whipping and the space around you clearing. Whether this is a (temporary) season of peace for creativity to come forth or for your new voice to be birthed out of "REST" instead of "WAR", I don't know. But I do know enough to say " enjoy it while it lasts!" Benefit from this fresh wind to go for a sail in the Spirit. (Or did He mean "sale"? (Just kidding).
All the blessings of life and godliness are yours! Happy Thanksgiving from Lee and Mrs. Andrews! With love whipped in!
And Caleb stilled the people...and said.. "Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it." But the men that went up with them said, "We be not able to go up...for they are stronger than we." Num. 14 v.30-31 KJV
I heard the word "enable" this morning. It means to furnish with means or power- to render able. Jesus said on John 14, "If anyone believes steadfastly in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do." One of the jobs of the Holy Ghost is to enable us to live a victorious life on this earth.
FATHER: I am able to get the job done today!
I speak increase over your supernatural abilities to take dominion over turkeys, over cleaning up for company, over every legal and financial issue and over your own flesh.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and light to my path. Ps. 119v.105 NAS; Give glory to the Lord your God...before your feet stumble...But if you will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride...Jeremiah 13 v.16-17 KJV
There is a way that seemeth right to a man but the end thereof leads to traffic jams, detours and long lines at the wrong store! Don't go that way today! The Lord does not want our stubborn pride about having our own way to cause us to stumble in life. Some of these rocky places and hills can be avoided by walking in the Light of God's path. Experience is not the best teacher: The Holy Ghost is! The School of Hard Knocks is not where you're studying to show yourself approved!
FATHER: Give me light from Your Word today! He gives His angels charge over you so you will not dash your foot. (Ps. 91)
Blessings on your week of walking in the light of God!
I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessings. Ez. 34; The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children. Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth. The dead praise not the Lord...But we will bless the Lord from this time forth and for evermore! Ps.115
Do you have something to be thankful for? I know you do. Do you have a lot to do to get ready for the Thanksgiving holiday? I know you do. But fight for the spiritual side of Thanksgiving Day. The world is squeezing Thanksgiving out. The world pushes the marketing of Halloween and Christmas, but it can't get enough profit out of promoting a holiday about thanking God & honoring families. So you make a point of profiting from the benefit of thanksgiving.
FATHER: We enter Your gates with thanksgiving in our hearts and we enter Your courts with praise!
Blessings on your weekend of thanking Him already for what you are about to receive. More is coming for the people of God & their families! Thank Him in faith!
Christ Himself, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Col.2v.3
Everything you need to be successful today is stored up in Christ Jesus, The Anointed One. Provision has been made for you. A Plan for you today has been on Heaven's drafting table since before the foundations of the world.
So how do we tap, tap, tap into the today's hidden treasure? Believe that you receive is a good start. Always. Believe in your heart and Say this aloud: I believe that Christ is made unto me WISDOM. I have wisdom today. I know where to go and what to do. My timing is divine. I can turn on a dime, shift and stay aligned.
Then God said to Jonah, "Do you have good reason to be angry about the plant?"...You had compassion on the plant which came up overnight and perished overnight. Should I not have compassion on the great city in which there are more than 120,000 persons...? Jonah Chap.4
God's thoughts are higher. We can agree on that, right? The Bible tells us so. (Isa. 55). And not only are His thoughts, but also His processes. God woke me up with this question from Jonah a few days ago. I was struggling with an outcome that I didn't like. Ever been there? My heart and God's heart were out of sync. While I know God didn't approve of the outcome that had upset me, He had allowed it for some Kingdom process bigger than anything my brain could handle. But most importantly, He had moved forward. And left me sitting with Jonah under a withered plant.
If that is you today, get up and run to catch up with God. Can two walk together unless they be in agreement? Get your heart back on God's highway.
Sit alongside me here on my throne until I make your enemies a stool for your feet. Ps. 110 v.1, The Message Bible
Standing on your enemies is a power position that comes from sitting in the Presence of the Lord. The Bible says we are seated in heavenly places with Him: we have authority to rule. That is our true position, but all too often, I am down scratching in the dirt with the chickens over an offense or a distraction. Keep your seat!
Spending time in Jesus' Presence should be a priority. My daily time of Praise and Worship enthrones Him and moves me up beside Him. From that lofty place, the two of us look out over the field of my life for that day. In that intimate time, I hear what He is saying and I say what He is saying, - all day long. Maybe it is an "Open-up" day. Open up ye doors and left the King of Glory in! Or perhaps Jesus says it is a "binding and loosing" day. I am ruling according to His rules.
The Father is calling you:Sit alongside me here on My throne until I make your enemies a stool for your feet!
Make straight paths for your feet (Heb, 12v.13 NAS); Upright and happy paths that go in the right direction (Heb 12v.13 AMP); Happy are all who perfectly follow the laws of God. Ps.119v.1 The Living Bible
PURSUE means "to chase with the aim of overtaking." In our nation the American dream is essentially based on the right to Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. What are you pursuing? Today's scripture reading is is telling us we don't have to wait until we retire in Hawaii, get a makeover or inherit millions to overtake happiness. If we choose to walk in God's paths, we will be aiming for happiness and choosing happiness.
What are the road markers on God's happy paths? Are you pursuing peace with all men? (Hebs. v.14) Stay away from strife. Are you pursuing consecration and holiness? Fleeing youthful lusts, pursuing righteousness, faith, love and peace? (2 Tim.2v.22) Notice that it is smart to run away from lustful temptations/traps.
FATHER: You said the road for the righteous gets brighter and brighter. (Prov. 4v.18) Thank you for the bright and happy path you have made for our feet.
Blessings on your week of pursuing, overtaking and recovering all!
Moreover I gave them my Sabbath, to be sign between Me and them. Ezekiel 20v.12 KJV; He who is not with Me (definitely on My side) is against Me, and he who does not (definitely) gather with Me and for My side, scatters. Matt. 12v.30 (AMP)
Want to flow in signs and wonders? Want to be a Holy Ghost-demonstrating prophet like Ezekiel? Get up Sunday morning, get dressed and drive to church. Just remembering the Sabbath and keeping it holy is a powerful sign. To whom? To God ( with pleasing obedience); to your self ( setting your house in divine order for power, peace and healing); to your neighbours ( convicting them and exposing their hearts); to demonic forces ("I'm against you!") ;and to your church ("I'm with you!").
"Scatter" means " to dash in pieces, to break, to drive, to put to flight and to waste. I've been " scattered" on some days when I wouldn't listen to the Holy Spirit and I insisted on doing what I wanted to do, when I wanted to do it. The Greek work for scatter is skorpios from the stinging creature. Being "scattered" has a painful penetrating sting that breaks into every piece of us.
Go to church. Gather, don't scatter. Don't forsake the assembling of yourselves together. If you can, come study the Anointing to Gather with me tomorrow, Saturday Nov. 10th at HBU's Mabee Theater. Be a sign of God's gathering power wherever He leads you to assemble.
Blessing on your weekend of GATHERING FORCE! Pray for me as I teach tomorrow!
And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them... Save us, O Lord Our God, and gather us from among the heathen, and to triumph in thy praise. Ps.106 v.41, 47 KJV
"Heathen rulership" could describe a job situation with an oppressive boss or colleagues. It could even describe a personal habit or weakness that is dominating your life. At whatever level it manifests, the power of God's Hand to gather us out and deliver us is our cry and our confidence. The way I read what the Bible is saying is this: the triumph is in the praise today. Not just the one day He gathers me out, but 2-day!
Let me add that "God's gathering us out from the heathen" is not the rapture. His deliverance is a promotion through the open door of destiny. We are gathered to a large place of freedom and divine ease to help build the Kingdom.
FATHER: Even now - under the rulership of those that hate me- set my spirit so I can worship Thee and triumph in Thy Praise.
Get your praise on!
Learn more about the Anointing to Gather as we study the Bible together this Saturday! Nov 10, 2012 from 10 to 12 noon at HBU's Mabee Theater.
Public roads were abandoned, travelers went by backroads. Warriors became fat and sloppy, no fight left in them. Then you, Deborah, rose up; you got up, a mother in Israel. Judges 5v.7 The Message Bible
When it seems tough and impossible, God raises up champions to get His work done in the earth. Can you agree that God's Champions are needed in this hour? Then let us also agree that the ears of the sleeping heroes are being opened to the Call. Your ears, too!
Father: Open the ears of Your champions to Your Call! My teenaged son is a Gideon; my praying grandmother is a Deborah; my husband is a David with five smooth stones. God, Arise in me. Scatter the enemy before me as I go!
Blessings on your fresh zeal for the Living God!
Join me this Saturday, Nov 10th for a time of Consecration for you and for me as I mark another birthday in my life of service to God. Our Bible Study series is the Anointing to Gather. Let us "power up" with more of Him!
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that overcomes the world - our faith. 1 John 5v.4
Our right to vote is a victory won in hard-fought fights our American history. Voting brings victory in our Democratic process and as good citizens it is our responsibility to participate. God likes for us to do our duty.
FATHER: Bless your people to do their duty today and to vote. Make it easy for those who are busy or overwhelmed to go and get it done. Put that check-mark of Your approval by each of our names as we help bring VICTORY today!
He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river. Ps.105v.41
A friend called at the "wrong" time with a prayer need. God can make the "wrong" time right, if we trust Him. We prayed just a few minutes together and my friend's spirit rose up. God opened the rock! Oh, how we need each other in this hour! Even believers can find themselves between a rock and a hard place with some of satan's perverse pretzel twists.
FATHER: OPEN THE ROCK today
for each one reading this! Let the waters of Your Mercy , Your Provision and Your Joy gush out from the rocks that have blocked our way.
Love you - blessings on a week of the New and Glorious for you and for our nation!
If we believe, we will experience that state of resting. But not if we don't have faith. Heb.4v.3 The Message Bible
Faith is a rest. It can be a battle to get to that rest. Getting the word in your heart, making it move from your head to your heart is work. You might have to work at confessing that scripture promise several times a day for a good while. You might have to work at replacing your old, fleshy thoughts and fear with faith-filled thoughts. Whatever it takes to get there, but to get to the place of resting in faith.
Father: I pray for the believers reading this. Strengthen their faith now. They grab hold of Your Promise. (What Has God promised you: to heal your mortal body - to save that son or daughter- to give you favor in that legal matter- to give you double for what was stolen-? ) We believe we receive now. And now we're resting- swinging on a star, sitting on the porch swing in Daddy God's lap. Say this now: I got it! It's mine!
Blessings on a restful, faith-full weekend for you and for America!
Now it came to pass...as I (Ezekiel) was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened and I saw visions of God. Ez.1v.1
November 2012- Moment of time of incredible significance and intense pressure. Not only in the world, but also in our individual lives as Christian soldiers. In Ezekiel's life there was similar life-and-death pressure and upheaval. But instead of looking down into his bowl of worms that life had served him, he looked up. Up into heavenly visions of God. Ezekiel saw visions of God in such extraordinary detail for an exiled prisoner by a river with a bunch of hungry, dirty, bewildered captives. He wasn't in a golden temple full of candles and singing.
The Spirit of the Lord wants to Show the same breath-taking type of Up to us this month. God is wanting to make the invisible dramatically apparent as the showdown month has finally come. God is Showing what Up looks like and feels like. In this showdown month ( not just for the USA, but for you, too) The Spirit of the Lord is SHOWING UP VISIONS, SIGNS & MARKS OF HEAVEN. God is eager to invade our lives this month. Yes, He comes as a handyman to fix things. But He brings His handiwork to open our vision and change us forever.
Lord, Show up and Show out!
We are the ones who love you, Lord!
LEE'S WORD FOR TODAY 1/6/17
SEPARATE FROM PAST BAGGAGE, DIVORCE OLD SIN, MARRY NEW FUTURE IN CHRIST!
Lee's Word for Today 1/6/17
from past baggage
NEW FUTURE IN CHRIST!
And Lot also, which went with Abraham, had flocks and herds and tents. And the land was not able to bear them, for their substance was great...And Abraham said,
"Lot, separate thyself, I pray thee, from me." Genesis 13v.5; ...forgetting what lies behind, straining for what lies ahead. Phil.3v.13
You can't take it with you. "It" means your (unfruitful) way of thinking, your old " it ain't working" way of working. Abraham's nephew was a dear relative, they had so much in common, so many sweet or tough memories shared. How long before we get God saying, "Separate from your old way. There is a new way."
As always with God, you must obey the first step (separate, leave the baggage, drop it,) before the land under your foot's path for the 2nd step appears.
And the Lord said unto to Abraham AFTER that Lot was separated from him:
Lift up now thine eyes from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward. For all the land that thou seetst, to thee will I give it...v.14-17
FATHER: Show me Your new way today! I PRESS TOWARD THE PRIZE!
Love you guys more than you know,
Will you keep silent at this time, Queen Esther? Now that you have prevailed before the King and your petition for deliverance for you and your nation from the evil Haman Hillary, will you decree, reign and use your authority? Not many days hence, about 30, the inauguration of the President God chose and we died for (died to pizza and blueberry pancakes, died to distractions to cry out, some died to fear of voting Republican for the 1st time!)) will be inaugurated.
Though the media is attempting to spread dishonor and rebellion,your intercession for FULL MORDECAI HONOR will crown the event and will also REAP HONOR for you. The honor you intercede for in these 30 days to January 21 is the degree of honor that will (or won't) come to you in the New Year. God is teaching us to reign in this extraordinary season, this amazing Last Days Age. Can you honor a husband if God gave you one, a boss, a mother-in-law, can you honor the Office of the President or the Plan of God? Skimping on honor at this time, will skimp on the Glory of God!
When God's choice is fully honored, - as Mordecai was - God's reward is FULLY given! God gave the people of the nation light ( a new dawn of hope) and gladness and joy and honor.The enemies of the Kingdom were destroyed. Esther 8v.16 Victory is indeed sweet!
....And the king said to Haman/Hillary, what shall be done to the man whom the king delights to honor?...Haman answered... Let royal apparel be brought which the king has worn(NOTE: THE ANOINTING)
And the horse which the king has ridden
(NOTE: same as David's instructions for Solomon's inaugurations for David's mule to be ridden)and a royal crown be set upon his head.
Let the apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king's most noble princes. Let him array the man (NOTE: divine order- Mordecai was not putting king's robe on himself- but nobility and established order robing him) whom the king delights to honor and conduct him on horseback through the open square of the city(NOTE: We need to pray for the city- the sea of people to OPEN to Trump and not resist him whom Our king has appointed.)Esther 6v.6-9
The King's instructions in Esther 6v.10 Do so to Mordecai the Jew (Make it happen).
Leave out nothing that you have spoken. (Don't mess this up.)
We need a full Mordecai inauguration. Esther (the church) has prevailed before the King.We won. We Arise, We Shine for Our light has come!
