This Is It!

saulepiphanyI just read those words on a message board and God immediately brought Michael Jackson to my mind. As I am writing this I am thinking about a dream I had about this woman, who really wanted to meet this celebrity. Well I encouraged the man to meet her and when they met, he was Michael Jackson. WOW! But that wasn’t even what I was thinking about.

If you have seen Michael Jackson’s last concert rehearsal DVD “This is It”. I am always saddened toward the end of the video. It’s sad because you know the man will soon be dead. But what always struck me about that video is that Michael made his announcement for his concert in London (I believe) and he says “this is it. The final curtain call”. Well his words turned out to be prophetic, but in a negative sense. I am always struck by those words because little did he know, it would be the final curtain call for his life.

Yes, THIS IS IT! But it’s not going to be what you think. God is about to take someone through a season of DIVINE DISCIPLINE. I am not the least bit concerned about what is being said about me. It’s prophetic backlash. I think people want to discredit prophetic people because they are afraid that what that person is saying will happen.

Yes, THIS IS IT! There are some empires that are about to fall, and GOD, not man, is going to build them up again. YES, THIS IS IT!

What you don’t understand now, you will understand shortly, for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it!

Acts 9:1-4

New International Version (NIV)

Saul’s Conversion

9 Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. He went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”

The Real Gospel

Holy-Bible_20110524052238I made a sudden shift this week out of my old church and I am now a part of an e-church. Honestly, some may have a problem with it, but I don’t. But the first thing I noticed is the difference in the preaching.

This pastor addresses sin on a regular basis, something the modern-day church knows nothing of. The church today had “overdosed” on grace, so if you point out sin, they think you are “persecuting” them. Well that is not what persecution is. The Bible is clear and lists a whole lot of sins that will take you to hell.

I am glad to be under such strong word. I realize God led me out because I needed something to help mature me. I am not a babe in Christ and I am not a carnal Christian either, but listening to this strong “meat” of the word is helping to to see, just how far I really am. Often we can become deceived about ourselves if the light of the word is not shined on us.

God is calling people out of mainstream churches  to receive more of the meat of his word and He is raising up Apostles and Prophets who will stand flat-foot and not compromise God’s word.

Hebrews 5:12

New International Version (NIV)

12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!

God Knows Something We Don’t Know.

I was observing this “situation” from afar and wondering why this couple can’t be together. Look, I’m all for what people say they want. Now I know we can romanticized stuff all day long, but I was just wondering why? Being nosey. But I heard the Lord say, it wouldn’t last and honestly I can believe it.

Some women idolize men and then when the reality of it hits, it’s too much for them to handle. Also some women coddle men and that is not good to do. It just kind of reinforces the madness. Yes, I’m all for “loving people” but remember, even Jesus whipped the money changers out of the temple. There needs to be balance.

30 blogs to help you get through a divorceSometimes things looks so good on paper, but then when you get up close you begin to see the truth. Well honestly, I will’ take the Lord’s words for it because I was thinking why not?

I know Christian people want to marry so they can have sex “legally” and that is noble. But do you really have the character to stay faithful in that marriage? Sometimes that is big reason God does not allow us to move forward either. Listen if you have fornicated recently (any kind of sex outside of marriage), you are NOT ready for marriage!

And I am a firm believer in deliverance before marriage. I know a lot of people don’t even believe they can be delivered because nobody is preaching about it anymore, but you better get delivered or else you might end up like Oscar Pistorious. He’s the athlete that ended up fatally shooting his girlfriend. I don’t know what happened, but something was wrong if he shot his girlfriend in the bathroom.

I once BEGGED God to marry this man. lol Yes, I did and in the midst of that season, I had an experience that gave me clarity and rocked me to the core. I heard the audible voice of God in a dream (that has only happened twice) and it was one word: DIVORCE. I didn’t want to accept it  but God was letting me know that if I married that man, it would not last and I believe it. It took a while to accept it, but I believe it.

God is not opposed to us finding and having love, but he wants it to last and that is why some of us are still single. We are not ready for a lasting relationship. And if we would just be honest with ourselves, we know it’s the truth.

Well, as I speculated about these two people all I know is that GOD knows something about it we don’t know or as I like to say “Father knows best”.

Wait on the Lord! As you wait, it will all be revealed. Just wait! It won’t be much longer!

Malachi 2:16

Amplified Bible (AMP)

16 For the Lord, the God of Israel, says: I hate divorce and marital separation and him who covers his garment [his wife] with violence. Therefore keep a watch upon your spirit [that it may be controlled by My Spirit], that you deal not treacherously and faithlessly [with your marriage mate].

Wait a Minute Now!!!

EstherI’ve been thinking about something and talking to God and preparing myself for whatever and then suddenly I was like “wait a minute now”. I’m nobodies second best. So I asked the Lord about it and I heard him loud and clear. He said “you have a choice”.

So here is where I get off this bandwagon. If God’s promise, meets, dates, announces publicly anything about another woman, I am OUT! And that includes sex too. There will be no going back for me. And that is because I know who I am and I’m not a second best kind of girl.

Lately, God has reminded me of how special I am because we can forget or people can make us forget. My new Pastor spoke to the e-congregation about me. He said, she is a sweet woman of God, courteous, etc, etc…I’m not boasting, but I needed that. So I have my list of what I WILL NOT ACCEPT. And I mean it.

If you don’t understand this, God has spoken to me about the future and now there is someone else obscuring the vision, and God just let me know, I have a choice. So I presented my list of deal-breakers to the Lord and that is it. I’m not having it anymore!!!

Ladies, if you know you are Queen, don’t allow anyone to treat you like a pauper. I will not accept anyone getting near my throne. I just won’t. And if they do..IT’S OVER! And that is my choice.

Esther 2:17-18

New International Version (NIV)

17 Now the king was attracted to Esther more than to any of the other women, and she won his favor and approval more than any of the other virgins. So he set a royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti. 18 And the king gave a great banquet, Esther’s banquet, for all his nobles and officials. He proclaimed a holiday throughout the provinces and distributed gifts with royal liberality.


You Ain’t Gonna Lose It, This Time!

newborn_1388446cI am finally learning a lesson. God is able to keep that which HE HAS SAID.

I just got finished reading some of my old blog posts that someone reminded me of and I am not moved by it any longer. God is the keeper of the dream, vision or promise. I have sacrificed all that God has given me. And in due season, he will give it back to me.

But yesterday the Lord reminded me of a message I heard when I was asking him about a vision he showed me. Because I have “miscarried” dreams in the past, it make me uncertain on occasion. But I remember hearing this message by T.D. Jakes and the title of it was “You ain’t gonna lose it, this time”.

The message was so on point. It spoke of the fear of losing things that God promised because of past experiences, but God was saying this time you won’t lose it.

Even though I’ve had some doubts along the way, I KNOW I’m not going to lose this promise this time. I birthed it in the spirit and it will happen in the natural. Not sure what all still has to happen, but I still believe God, because HE SPOKE IT, not me.

Nope, I ain’t gonna lose this one, this time!

Habakkuk 2:3

New International Version (NIV)

For the revelation awaits an appointed time;
it speaks of the end
and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait for it;
it[a] will certainly come
and will not delay.
