THE SOUNDS OF HEAVEN

At Christ"s first coming, there was an announcement from the heavenly realm by an archangel(Gabriel) to Mary. There was a sound from heaven to the shepherds in the fields through the angelic realm heralding the birth of a Savior. There was the sound of a cry from the manger as a newborn sacrificial lamb made His presence known. As He prepares to make His second coming a reality, there will be another sound from heaven. There will be a shout from the King of Glory, a voice of the archangel(Gabriel) and with the sound of the trumpet of God!(1Thess.4:16) Surely the mountains will shake, the dead in Christ will rise and enemies will flee! The King is coming! His shout is like the roar of a lion. Yeshua is one and the same a sacrificial lamb and a roaring lion.(Revelation 5:5-6). He who died on the cross as a suffering servant is the same one coming back as a conquering king! In this season of light, let's celebrate the newborn King, His virgin birth, the beauty of who we celebrat…

IN THAT DAY

In all of history, we are in the most exciting time to be alive! I believe we stand in the season that has been prayed for thousands of years! Anticipated by the cloud of witnesses, previous prophets and intercessors, our ancestors, family and we ourselves as we pray come, Lord(Maranatha). Now is the time to pray for favorable judgement for the world, the Jew, the muslim, the unbelieving believers, the lost...all of them! In Jeremiah 30:7-10 it speaks of a great day that is unlike any other, that the Lord of hosts says it shall happen in that day, Israel will be saved and serve the Lord their God, and raise up David their king(Yeshua)and establish The Kingdom on Earth! Fear and worry will be replaced with rest and refreshing. The truth of this is it's really about Israel! Always has been, always will be! Since November 6 2012(election day), heaven is observing our reaction and response to the results.Where we go from here doesn't depend on this commander-in-chief, it's o…

CROWN HIM

There is in the "Old Testament" of the Bible, a concept which has no word for it in English called 'hamlacha'. It's meaning is "to crown someone as king". This is what Yeshua was referring to in Matthew 23:39 as He said that He would not return until the people of Jerusalem were ready to declare Him as king. In verse 39 it says, You shall see Me no more till you say, "Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!". In His triumphal entry in the gospel of Mark chapter 11:9-10... 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that comes in the name of the Lord!' This is an inauguration! It is a declaration of kingship, this is 'hamlacha'! This is a reversal of what the people cried out in the courtyard over Yeshua. There is a day coming when instead of crying out "Crucify Him!" all the people will cry out, "CROWN HIM!" The last words of Yeshua in Revelation 22:1…

PAPPA'S PASSION PLAN

God has always had a plan for a perfect kingdom to be established on earth, with Yeshua as king and Jerusalem as its capital. It IS real, with real people and real activity, where peace and prosperity will be a reality! It will resemble the kingdom of David & Solomon at its zenith, only bigger, better, and eternal with Yeshua as the King of kings. So therefore, if you can picture a perfect kingdom on earth, where there will be truly an international community of faith with unity in diversity; the fullness of God dwelling within us, this is what the Kingdom of God will look like. While we wait and STAND, these are the three things we hold as our goals; the infilling of the Holy Spirit, the world hearing and receiving the gospel, and the restoration of Israel! It is Pappa's passion, certainly the passion of Christ, the passion of Holy Spirit as He teaches us and it is our passion, too. It is a four part harmony, a new sound in the earth being released! Here!! Now!!! Today!!!!��…

THE KINGDOM IS AT HAND

Having just returned from visiting Israel, with fifteen of my favorite believers, I wanted to share a little of what God showed me. While in Jerusalem, I kept hearing the words Maranatha and Baruch haba in the spirit. As I pondered on these words, revelation came by the spirit, saying this was a double invitation! The remnant of TRUE believers in every nation will cry out Maranatha! Revelation 22:20 "even so, come[maranatha], Lord Jesus!" and the restored Jewish believers in Yeshua will cry out Barach haba! Matthew 23:39 " You shall see me no more till you say 'blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord[Barach haba b'shem adoniai]!" At this double invitation Yeshua WILL return! Just as there was negative cooperation between Jewish religious leaders and Roman leaders to crucify Yeshua, so there will be positive cooperation between Jewish and gentile believers to invite Yeshua back. Jesus said we should know how to "discern the signs of the times&qu…

THE GREEN

There are soldiers in the U.S. Army who make a decision to serve in a more profound way. They choose to join with the elite and go into Special Forces and try to win the Green Beret! There is no wining and dining on the army's part. It is no invitation to vacation. Instead, it's a twelve mile run followed by a mile swim with your uniform on, including boots. And that's day one! It's called TRAINING and prepares this elite group to accomplish missions under the toughest conditions, not unlike the kingdom life! We are in training to ready us for the wonderful glory coming. God doesn't thrive on tormenting His sons. He knows the big picture in ways we don't that pain prepares us for. Those that are successful through these painful situations are those God can trust for the glorious opportunities awaiting. He is making us ready for the glory of His Kingdom. Training that will show up as we go through the process and find ourselves ...IN HIM!!! Then the scripture Ro…

UNDERSTANDING

God wants to open the door of understanding so we can receive and comprehend His Ways, His Thoughts and His Kingdom. We, as the body of Christ,must rid ourselves of bad theology, old teaching and mindsets that don't align with the true Word of God. God wants to reveal Himself to a humble, willing heart and take them to the depths of His knowledge and His revelation! He doesn't want to leave us at the place we are now. He wants to take us to our rightful place of perfection in Christ Jesus. He wants to bring us into the fullness of Glory that awaits us!!! So lets go deeper into the true Word Of God, the depths of the spirit realm we haven't reached and find out what is written on our scrolls ... and begin to walk in it! Eternity beacons and our destiny awaits. LET'S SET OUR MIND AND GO!!! "DO NOT FEAR, DANIEL, FOR FROM THE FIRST DAY THAT YOU SET YOUR MIND TO GAIN UNDERSTANDING AND TO HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE YOUR GOD, YOUR WORDS HAVE BEEN HEARD, AND I HAVE COME BECAU…

PURITY

Dear friends, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet been revealed. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself just as He is pure. 1 John 3:2-3 God, at the core, is a redeemer of broken lives and a restorer of beauty. He has a transforming effect on His children. He uses us(His children) to build and expand His kingdom! It has has already started, this future hope and present reality! Pappa is bringing everything full circle. All of history is moving rapidly into this fullness of time, when He brings all things together in One...Jesus Christ!!! We all will see Him in the full brightness of His Glory and beauty and it will transform us into the beauty for which we were created. Our past is over, the page has turned, the time has come and it begins NOW. Every glance we get of Yeshua makes us have a purer heart with cleaner hands so we can ascend into the presence of G…

THE VICTORY IS OURS

1 John 5:4 says, "For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that overcomes the world---our faith." Don't judge your situation by what you see, for we are in a time when a lot of what we see & hear is negative and disappointing, a time we don't understand. But even in these times, let's stand on faith and believe, just believe, the promise that God is able to bring us to the other side of ANY difficulty with great signs, wonders and miracles! He promises to make us overcomers! He desires to bring us to victory where we are greater, stronger and refined, so He can position us at a higher level than ever before! What you believe, you become, and faith is that substance that manifests results...VICTORY!!! He wants to bring our believing in line with His word. Watch and see the victory come! It really is GOOD NEWS.!.

Angelic Encounters (Prison Testimony)

This is my testimony of how the Lord sent an angel named Greg for 28 days to show me the Word of God and Ways of God, while I was a "guest" of the South Carolina Department of Corrections. This occurred after I gave up and made Jesus Lord of my life.

BEHOLDING YESHUA AS HE IS

In Matthew 17: 1-8 we see Yeshua transfigured before His disciples. While Peter was speaking, BEHOLD, a bright cloud overshadowed them; suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!" They heard this voice and were terror struct. But Jesus touched them and told them to stand and not be afraid. When they stood and looked, they saw no one but Jesus. In the fullness of time, God revealed His glory in Yeshua so we all can see God as He truly is. They saw Holy Spirit as the shining cloud, Father as the voice in the cloud and the Son standing in their midst. Seeing Yeshua as He is changed them and He changes Us as we see Him as He is. In this one kairos moment, they no longer saw Jesus as a teacher, rabbi, miracle worker, or revolutionary, but as who He truly is: King of heaven and earth! The key to this revelation is a life laid down in worship and service, which leads us to victory in Christ over all our enemies! Beh…

THE BLOOD... LIQUID LOVE

The blood of our Messiah has in it everything we need. It's ALL in the blood: redemption, forgiveness, healing, and blessing. The blood of Jesus also takes away guilt, shame, condemnation, fear and torment. We are known by our love. In John 13:35 it says "By this shall all men know you are my disciples, if you have love one to another." God has made it so the only way you fellowship with Him is to fellowship with one another. Talent is developed alone, but character is developed among others. Yeshua didn't say if you just love me, you are my disciples. He said if you love one another, you are my disciples. There is an evidence you are fellowshipping with God when you want to fellowship with others. God loves people. When you love people, it shows you love God! The blood flows and circulates through fellowship with others. The blood supplies what we do need and gets rid of the "stuff" we don't need! (It brings in the supply and takes out the trash)! The …

REVIVE, THRIVE AND GLORIFY

Now is the time to revive, thrive and glorify! May we glorify God by better use of what He has given us, including our time. Let's glorify Him with a fresh determination to proclaim the "good news" to a world that is looking for answers. Hebrews 11:3 says "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." Here the Lord says the world was framed & designed by the Word of God, amen! We, as sons of God, are going to frame "our" world by the Word of God. Our words carry great authority and when we speak these godly words they frame our world, our children's future, our spiritual children, the "church", our destiny and our success! Revelation 5:10 says "You have made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth." God is calling us to a new level of authority, a new level of power, boldness and confidence. Sta…

TRUE FREEDOM

So, if the Son sets you free, you are free through and through. John 8:36 (The Message) Religion says, "Do." Jesus says, "Done." When Jesus shed His precious blood on the cross, He didn't say "To be continued." He said "It is finished." The Bible says that "He is the First and the Last" and "the author and finisher of our faith. Because of the blood of Jesus, you are no longer under the law but under grace. Your past was erased. You are free from guilt and have victory over the devil. The Lord has provided you with a better covenant, which was established on better promises. You are delivered from guilt and condemnation because the blood of Jesus Christ has been shed for your freedom and liberty! It is yours, TRUE FREEDOM, through the Blood of the the Cross. Take it, it's yours!!!

THE PASSOVER

"So, friends, we can now say-without hesitation- walk right up to God, into the Holy Place. Jesus has cleared the way by the BLOOD of His sacrifice, acting as our priest before God. The 'curtain' into God's presence is His body." Hebrews 10:19-21(The Message) In the spirit of Passover, Let us ponder three important words. Number one, INNOCENCE, Adam loved God in innocence. His trust in God was tested and was found lacking. Number two, RIGHTEOUSNESS, Abraham was God's friend. His trust in God was tested and he believed God. It was counted to him as righteousness. Number three, PERFECTION, Jesus was tested in all things and was perfected through His obedience. His obedience has thrust us into the realm of victory!!! That we really are more than conquerors and we truly are overcomers... not by our obedience but because of His. He is our PASSOVER... It's the blood, it's the blood. It was His precious Blood that paid The Way into the Holy of Holies. Only b…

PASSOVER... YESHUA IS OUR PASSOVER

In 1Corinthians 5:7 it mentions that "For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us." John the Baptist saw Jesus walking by and said, "Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world." He was correct. Jesus was crucified on the exact day, at the exact time that the head of each house would sacrifice the lamb for his family. Amazing!!! In Jewish tradition and covenant, a lamb was sacrificed each year on the 14th day of the first month. They would separate this lamb for five days and prepare it by grooming, feeding and getting familiar with it, knowing it would be sacrificed! Yeshua was just as the lamb prepared by Jewish fathers. We need to set Him apart, knowing He too was innocent but was sacrificed so we could be reconciled to God. He Still is the Lamb who takes our sins away. Never forget that we as believers in our Lord and our Savior get to sit with Him at the His table!!!

APPLY THE BLOOD

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience... Hebrews 10:22a The blood of the old covenant had to be applied, not just shed. The blood of the Passover lamb had to be applied to the door posts(Exodus 12:22), and the blood of the goat had to be sprinkled(applied) before the mercy seat seven times(Leviticus 16:15). The blood had to be applied then, and it has to be applied now in the new covenant as well! The blood that Yeshua shed seven ways was profiled by the sprinkling of blood before the mercy seat. When you take communion, go from the top of His head to the soles of His feet to get your cleansing. The blood that came from His crown was shed for forgiveness from idolatry; out of His brow for sins of fear and doubt; out of His back to be healed; out of His side for intentional sins;out of His hands to purify your hands instruments of righteousness; from His bruises for iniquities to be cleansed; out of His feet …

GOD IS LOVE

The Bible teaches us "God is love,"(1John 4:16) which is the deepest part of His character. Yet it also shows that He is a just God who is to be feared! In Exodus 34:6-7, which has come to be known as the Disposition of Christ: "And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth,keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no way clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children to the third and fourth generation." This scripture shows us the God who is love, acts in love, also deals with sin. Notice the mercy in the word 'visits' the third and fourth generations! This kind of love, God's kind of love and forgiveness, has got to be released in the world! The key is made manifest by the transforming work of Yeshua in our lives, by the power of Holy Spirit enabling us to tr…

OBEDIENCE

"Whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock..." Matthew 7:24. This verse says whoever hears these sayings and then does them are survivors! Obedience, which is doing the truth, may be the the most important rule for building a storm proof life. Not a storm free life, but a storm proof life! "The evidence of knowing God is obeying God" has been spoken over and over in our lives. In James 1:22 it says "But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves..." The gospel is simple to understand; Listen to the truth and do it! What are some applications we can implement to become obedient and doers of truth? GIVE...FORGIVE...RESIST TEMPTATION...TURN THE OTHER CHEEK...DENY YOURSELF...LOVE GOD AND LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF...GO AND PREACH THE GOSPEL... Lord show me today what I have been hearing You say but have chosen not to do.

FAITH, FORGIVENESS and FEAR

After much supplication, weeping and crying out to Yahweh(LORD), David testified in Psalms 130:4(Amp) "But there is forgiveness with You(just what man needs), that You may be reverently feared and worshiped". Suddenly David was overwhelmed by Holy Spirit with memories of Father's loving-kindness, forgiving, redeeming nature!!! He was soon rejoicing in the revelation by the verses 7 and 8 in the same chapter: "O Israel, hope in the Lord! for with the Lord there is mercy and loving-kindness, and with Him is plenteous redemption. And He will redeem Israel from all their iniquities". We will never humanly understand or reason out what Yeshua,s wonder-filled gift of His blood has and is doing for us. This gift, this promise, this love of the Father, this desire to forgive, this blood of Christ...ALL these blessings are known and received by faith. Galatians 3:11(Amp) Now it is evident that no person is justified(declared righteous and brought into right standing wit…

GIVING THANKS

Thank God in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will]. 1Thessalonians 5:18 Amplified Bible. Notice the bible says in this verse to be thankful, an inward heart felt condition, and to give thanks, an outward demonstration of our will. Therefore, in us as kingdom builders, is the kingdom of heaven. In us is the father of love, the giver of good and perfect gifts. Also in us is abundance and no lack, daily loaded with benefits and blessings above all we can think or ask!!! All these things are inward and we know by the spirit they have been deposited in us. So, in that there has been such a wonderful deposit in us, we who are in Christ Jesus boldly decree: FAVOR, BLESSING, and INCREASE, FAITH and GRACE to receive, FREEDOM from all debt, RESTORATION of all things, RENEWING of our minds, HEALING of our bodies, DELIVERANCE from all bondages, HONOR…

THE RIGHT STUFF

Matthew 6:9 says "Pray, then, in this way: Our Father who is heaven, hallowed be Your name..." Whatever you are hallowing, making holy in the secret place IS going to manifest in the public place. Whatever you focus on and believe IS going to be made apparent. Whatever it is that you worship IS going to get on you!!! So, the question is what is it we are hallowing, focusing on and worshiping ? Verse 10 says "Your kingdom come, Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven..." Make it so, Lord, make it so... It IS the right time now for us to do the right thing in every thing! It is the "right stuff" for kingdom building!
