And the blood shall be for you a token upon the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you and the plagues shall be upon you to destroy you. Exodus 12v.13...the Lord will pass over the door and will not suffer the destroyer to come into your houses to smite you. Exodus 12:21
Put the Blood of the Lamb of Jesus over your home, your family and your lives. Stay mindful of your Blood covenant with our Great God. When you close your eyes at night; when you awaken in the morning. Take comfort in it and think about it. A Ransom has been paid for our protection and our safe-passage through this rocky world to completely fulfill destiny. Instead of entertaining Fear, let us entertain Angels. Ministering spirits sent to help us. Being aware of the our Blood covenant will strengthen our faith for ALL the things of life and godliness God has given us. You are strong, healthy, safe, prosperous - soulwinning with ease and delight - in a world that is falling apart.
FATHER:I put the Blood! Let God arise and Let His enemies be scattered!
But the more the Egyptians oppressed them, the more the Israelites multiplied and expanded- Exodus 1v.12
Persecution on the job, reproach, demonic misunderstandings, financial entanglements caused by others and the fight for manifested healed from physical afflictions- Many of you are going through long, tough battles! But it hasn't stopped you. Hallelujah! Shout for that victory- you weren't knocked out - you are still in the fight. Our scripture today says that you are not just surviving; you are thriving. Your authority and your influence are increasing. Your faith is being strengthened. You are fertile. Your world-overcoming testimony gives birth to other Free-Born-Again in Jesus believers.This makes the devil very mad. He can't stop God from blessing you on the battlefield. The devil can't make Goodness and Mercy stop following you! All the days of your life. (Ps.23) As the Message Bible says, beauty and love chase you today and everyday.
FATHER: I am ABOUNDING- and like Paul - whether abased or abounding- I AM CONTENT.
Babies not yet conceived will hear the good news. Ps.22v.30
I'm worried about getting to today's dental appointment, but my God has eternal-destiny-deciding appointments with people who are not even born! Do I have any idea in Whom I have put my trust? And you? Perhaps you are believing to conceive, be confident in His unfailing ability to deliver your Promise from His Word. Perfect, normal and healthy - as beautiful as baby Moses when he captivated Pharaoh's daughter with his tears! Let us keep our Dream Appointments with God. Even when you are busy, let peace carry you up to see your future from Heaven's perspective. God dreams in details that will guide you and encourage your heart. When God dreams, He appoints. He gives us today's faith assignments for tomorrow's great accomplishments.
FATHER: DREAM ON ME!
Love & Blessings on week of keeping sweet Dream Appointments with Your Creator God!
Go sell whatever you own and give it to the poor..come follow me...The man's face clouded over. This was the last thing he expected to hear...Mark 10 v.21-22,The Message
Even when "CHANGE" comes God's way, our hearts can take a somersault. "EMERGENCY" is the way the devil changes things. (Usually after a little unwitting cooperation from us - or at least in my case sometimes!) It is good when the first thing God tells us is the last thing we want to hear! We close the distance between His higher thoughts and our way of thinking. We have nothing to fear when our Father God speaks like that. He is unlike any flawed human judge, boss or parent who may have caused your face to cloud over with their unexpected words! Trust God in this time of intense change in all our lives.
FATHER: Change it! Change me! Keep changing me so that I am unafraid to change. You are giving me all I ever wanted even as You say the last thing I expected to hear!
Blessings on your weekend of new delights in God (and from Him, too!)
Jesus went back to teaching by the sea...using the boat as a pulpit. Mark 4v.1
"Creating readiness" is the way the Message Bible describes the mission of Jesus through the parables. I want to accomplish that mission today - and everyday of my life. Getting people ready to meet God, nudging them toward a hunger for Him should be a daily purpose for us. Even if my boat is on choppy or busy or "bad attitude" seas! The Gospel has its own power, so if I give it to whomever & from wherever my boat is today, it carry will me - and those I share with - to a new and higher place.
FATHER: Give me courage to create readiness & change the world. I stand on my boat, I open my mouth wide & I stretch out my hand!
When the whirlwind passes, the wicked are no more, but the righteous have an everlasting foundation. Prov. 10v.25
Are you whirling? So much to do, "mas mas mas" as they say Spanish.The whirlwind of more pressure to do things is swirling everyone's lives. But the Bible says there is a people who will remain established and grounded after the wind dies down to barely a flutter. You! The righteous people of God! We are not driven by the freeway detours, the construction, the human errors of missed appointments and all the demonic array of snafus. We are led by the Spirit. Like those toys babies can knock and swing at but NOT knock over, we don't go down from the hits. We're going up!
FATHER: When the whilrwind passes, I have an everlasting foundation - forever established, rooted and grounded in You! Jesus, order my overcoming steps today.
Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place...and day by day continuing...Acts 2 v.43 ,46
"Hold my mule while I shout," was one of Pastor John Osteen's punch lines and Glory "refrains." God's miracles are electrifying and the mule might not understand. Keep the awe, but "day by day continue" the steady, strong work of life - that you will need your mule (your tool) back to get the job done. How did the believers in the Book of Acts " day by day continue" ? The Bible says they 1)stayed in one mind in the temple- unity in your church family is a great strengthener and stabilizer for each of us; 2)broke bread from house to house - They took communion and fellowshipped with other believers outside church. Don't be a Lone Ranger. "He who separates himself seeks his own desire. Prov." 3) Ate together- they did it with gladness and sincerity of heart. It was fun and nourishing to be together; 4) They praised God; 5) They had favor with ALL the people.
FATHER: Whether the person reading this needs a miracle, is part of someone else's miracle or just had one of Your spectacular awesome interventions in the natural course of events. I decree that they CONTINUE THIS DAY. From strength to strength, from faith to faith, from glory to glory.
And they were saying to one another, "Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?...Mark 16v.3
The last chapter of Mark has this question in the beginning verses. And we know that the end of Mark 16 has you casting out devils, laying hands on the sick and preaching the gospel to ends of the earth! Is there a stone in your way today? Does the way before you look blocked and impossible? Like the women who set out with the purpose of preparing Jesus' body for burial, just take a step. They could have stayed home in bed wondering about the stone, but the Bible says "very early they came..." Then the next thing they did that we should do - they looked up! We, too, need to look up. Don't look at the stone. Also, though 3 women went to the tomb and they were all astonished at the stone's removal and the angelic visitation, only one woman walked on through to the "preaching and the telling." Two of them "saidnothing to anyone, for they were afraid." (verse 8). But one woman went through the opening that the stone made and told it to the weeping and mourning disciples.
FATHER: I take a step and You roll away the stone! I will go & tell it!
By your steadfastness and patient endurance you shall win the true life of your souls. Luke 21v.19 Amplified
" Staying with it- that is what is required. Stay with it to the end. You won't be sorry; you'll be saved." The Bible teaches us to imitate those who through faith and patience have obtained the promises. Patient endurance gets you over. Patience will help you possess your souls (Luke 21v.19 KJV). Mind, will and emotions are the three parts of our soulish realm. Your patient confidence calms and corrals your mind. Throw a lasso, like a good cowboy, over wrong thinking, doubt and fear. Patience gives you poise when your emotions threaten to boil over or lash out. (Often especially at the person you have been praying so hard for God to reach!) Patience shields you from the devil's cheap provocation.
FATHER: I win! I stand! I endure to secure the prize! The battle has made me BETTER!
So shall my word be that comes forth from my mouth;it shall not return to me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. Isa. 55v.11
God's word is at work for you today. The Word of God is bending, changing, shifting and separating things in the seen and the unseen world to bring His Promise to pass. Have you sent it forth for that daughter who needs favor or to sweeten a grumbling husband? Is there a legal matter or custody case that you are crying out about to the God of Justice? Be confident in the power of the Word to prevail. See it coming with your eyes of faith. Get happy about it - trust me, God's desire will be accomplished. His word's success in the matter was already part of His perfect plan for you.
Blessings on your week of seeing desire - yours & God's - ACCOMPLISHED!
The victim's faint pulse picks up; the hearts of the hopeless pump red blood as you put your ear to their lips. Ps.10, The Message
" God knows all about it; the contempt and the abuse," so begins verse 14 of Ps. 10 in the Message translation. I am hearing so much of this from Christians calling for prayer. Many are experiencing contempt, abusive disrespect in different ways and forms as this wicked world butts up against our righteousness. Be reminded that God sees and knows all about it. Keep eating at the table He has prepared for you in the midst of your enemies. God is putting His ear to our lips that cry out for things to be made right. Move! Remove! Restore!
For the Lord of Hosts has planned, and who can frustrate it? And as for His stretched-out hand, who can turn it back? Isa.14v.27
Abraham said to his servant..., Go to my country and take a wife for my son."...Then the servant took ten camels and went. Gen. 24
The ten-per cent camels led the way to the marriage in this Bible story! Pastor John Osteen used to say that if you tithed and believed God to prosper, you would be so rich everyone would want to marry you! Malachi 3v.12 does say the land (or life) of the tither shall be called delightsome or married (Beulah), similar to Isa. 62v.4
As you bring God's order into your life, His order with strengthen, settle and establish you. If you insist on looking at Keisha or Jessica who lived like the devil and beat you down the aisle, you will miss the pre-wedding party God has planned for this part of your life. Strength for today, hope for tomorrow. The camels are coming!
FATHER: Encourage your daughters who are longing to marry! I thank you for their obedience to tithe in faith for the future and for the Kingdom!
Lot went out and warned his daughters' fiances...But (they) treated it as a joke. Gen 19v.14 The Message
Tell them again.If you haven't shared the Gospel with your family, don't postpone it. Perhaps you are a new Christian and you have been waiting for a golden opportunity. Even for those who have repeatedly shared and invited your family members to church, there needs to be a new urgency. The angels sent to help Lot escape in our Bible passage today were looking for the ten righteous God said could save the city from destruction. It was the angels who asked Lot if he had any another family in the city that was about to destroyed. We need all your family members to be "in that number."
FATHER: You want the picture perfect. Give me courage and give me favor with my lost family members. Save them!
Don't hide your weakness from God! Of course we can't hide anything from Him, but you know exactly what I am saying. The very part of you that trips you up has a perfect match and an unfailing remedy in His exalting strength. He has a mantle of praise- a very chic-looking cape- to exchange for your shame and lack. So instead of doing everything to keep that awful part away from the surface, bring it out to our one and only Power Source- God Almighty!
The process of overcoming weaknesses is like Arbaham's journey to the Promised Land. Along the way Abraham got richer, wiser and of course, closer. Today's arrival point enriches you & smartens you up. Blessings on your week of living an overcoming life by the Power of God.
Remember ye not the former things; Behold, I do a new thing Isa.43v.18
What are you doing? God says He is doing a new thing. What are you doing with your dream? Last Sunday my pastor spoke of years of working full-time, coming home and being a good husband and a good Dad. Then after everyone went to sleep, he'd stay up until 3:00am writing songs, making demos and working his dream. Then he'd get up and go to work at 7 am.
Revival is coming. Your gift and your unique expression of God are needed. Will you be ready? The book finished, the business plan in place, the degree completed, the art work or songs finished? Join me at our special Year-Opening meeting focused on mining your underground stream for gold. It will be a Golden Harvest. The Lord has need of you for a desperate, lost generation. We will celebrate the New Thing the Great God is doing. And our hearts will be strengthened!
See you there next Saturday the 12th,
Prayer Request: I did a phone - interpretation this morning for an Italian woman (Estella) in New York who was taken from JFK airport & hospitalized against her will. She has a broken knee, bruises over her body from a beating, but claims she simply fell. Her 15 yr.old daughter travelling with her has been taken to shelter. Neither of them speak English. Both want to go home, but NY authorities want to put mother in a pysch ward. The mother is confused, on meds to treat a psychiatric condition. Agree with me for God to heal and move so they will be SAVED, safe, healed and back home. THANKS!
Then God shut the door behind him. Gen. 7v.16 The Message; And those that entered...entered as God had commanded...and the Lord closed it behind him.(NAS)
We can trust Him to put the seal on the finished work. Did you begin praying for that family member or co-worker as the Lord commanded? Then you can trust God to close the door behind you. Have you come to the end of all you can do in the natural about that financial issue or the health problem? Believe that He knows how to close the door behind you and keep out the rain of financial ruin or physical disability. He can keep a Promise. God is supernatural. In other passages, doors and gates open and close by themselves. But in our reading today, God comes up to the Ark after Noah, his family and the animals have all entered. Then God Himself shuts the door behind them. There is a satisfying richness to this amazing, divine verse. Be it unto you according to His Word!
You'll be working in pain all your life-long. Genesis 3v.17-19 The Message Bible
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law. Adam's sin brought a curse on the earth and on all man's labor in life. In our verse today are God's words to Adam and Eve as He sent them out from the Garden of Eden. But Jesus is our entryway back into Eden - which means lush, fruitful, abundant. Work is the tool God has given you to cultivate your life and make it a heaven-like garden on earth. God will like to dwell there with you,your family and others will also.
FATHER: I thank You that Jesus broke the curse over the work I do today. I don't work in pain. I work in delight and everything I put my hand to - prospers!
Blessings on your first work week in 2013- May it be Eden! For those of you seeking work, I pray Eden's door quickly opens to a new "Eden" job for you. OPEN! OPEN ! OPEN!
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!
