THE LION and LAMB

There has always been two pictures throughout the Word of Yeshua. One is a suffering servant and the other is a conquering king. The Hebrew teachers call these two figures messiah son of Joseph and messiah son of David The reasoning, I think, was that Joseph suffered at the hands of his brothers, and the figure of  David was a king at the height of power. There is hidden meaning in that Joseph ruled among the Gentiles and David ruled with Israel. The Messiah must rule as both head of the Gentiles(the int'l church) and as king of Israel! He is both! David suffered at the hands of Saul, then ruled in Jerusalem. Joseph suffered at the hands of his brothers and in jail, and then ruled in Egypt. In Zechariah 9:9 Jesus is shown coming to Jerusalem in humility riding on a donkey. In Daniel 7:13-14, we see Him coming in the clouds! This picture of suffering can be seen as a slain lamb, the conquering King seen as a roaring lion...Yeshua IS both... "Behold the lion of the tribe of Judah the root of David has prevailed to open the scroll and its seven seals. And I looked and saw between the throne and the four creatures and among the elders, stood a lamb as if he was slain..."(Revelation 5:5-6).

PROPHETIC WORD FOR 2020

In this new new season, which began in September and is being reinforced now, we, as the body of Christ, need to know when to speak and when not to speak. To know when to open our mouth and to know when to keep it shut. We need to see and understand what we see before we begin to release it into the atmospheres! We need to become more intimate with Holy Spirit and seek, ask & knock about when, where,. who and how we release it! I believe this season our vision will be increased in clarity and in focus. Many will have this insight and God will confirm what He is saying through the prophetic!                                                                                                                                                     There will also be a supernatural increase like  we have never experienced before! Matthew 17:20 Jesus reveals that by applying our faith "nothing will be impossible for you." Faith is believing, believing is faith. I believe there is an i…

HOLINESS

Leviticus 19:2 states "Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them:You shall be holy for the Lord your God am holy." Qadosh is the Hebrew word for holy. It means set apart, sacred, clean, morally or ceremonially pure. Holiness is separation from everything profane and defiling; and at the same time, it is dedication to everything holy and pure. He (God) is called Qadosh, "the Holy One of Israel." Thus verse 19:2 can say, "you shall be qedoshjim [holy ones] for I...am holy."                                                                                                                                                  Be holy; Don't DO holy! Become a living arc of His Presence, one that displays His fruit and shares His gifts. "Be holy as I am holy." Love without holiness is earthly: holiness without love is lofty and external! Love and holiness must be married. It is the heart that makes us holy; not the rules we …
