God's Fire in the cloud

God’s Fire in the cloud

Friends and fellow truth seekers.

I sense Big and mighty things are coming.

There is about to be a revival like we have NEVER seen before.  And it’s not from the ones we call “religious”.  Although I hope they will join.  It’s up to God.

Amongst the revival there will be a huge spiritual battle too.  God will give victory and when he does, WE WILL win!

I am about to start UNPACKING and UNLOADING things simply as I see them.  I must have balance in order to be able to continue to deliver what I hear.

Maybe you can help somehow?Continue reading

 “I AM… DEBT… FREEEEEE!!!!!”?

Is unfinished work a debt?

Is unfinished work a debt?

Have you ever heard the callers call into Dave Ramsey’s national radio talk show and scream those very powerful words?

You can hear the freedom in their voices and screams after they paid off their debts and often EVEN their house.   You can feel the joy in your heart as you celebrate with them and can’t wait to join their ranks.

I have always followed the idea of being “totally debt free”.  I mean house and everything.   But, recently, I have discovered there may be MORE things than money that are keeping me in bondage.

Is owing money to a person or a bank the ONLY kind of debt there is?Continue reading

women are true love

Are the women of this world the reflection of God’s true love?

Click here to read about my powerful morning...

This morning in my studies and quiet time many deep and amazing things are being connected for me and I ever so grateful to the Lord for that.

I am beginning to see powerful glimpses of the TRUE hierarchy of things in the hidden realm of the Spirit.  What I am seeing in “pieces” is surprising (yet some parts not so surprising) and wonderfully beautiful.

I keep wanting to share more specifics about these powerful “glimpses”, but feel I can’t quite get a strong “foothold” or foundation to start from.

Why?

He just keeps going deeper and deeper.  I feel “settled” and then something else shows up that is even deeper… and deeper…. and deeper.  I am constantly realizing there is NO end to the glorious depths of our wonderful father.  So, we must starts somewhere or we may never start at all.

So, the question and “theme” that comes to me most today is…

Are women the TRUE servants who most exemplify God’s true, sacrificial love?

My heart screams YES!

Remember the words of Jesus “the last will be first and the first will be last“?  Matt 19:30, 20:16  (Men this may be a great scripture to ponder…)

Look at all the wonderful things they have done for us in this world.  Isn’t it amazing?Continue reading

who created this current world

Who created this current world?

I have been finding and seeing a little 3 letter word in English that is suddenly becoming very important to me.

It’s the word  “the“.

Do you ever think about that tiny yet ever so important word?

Is there a difference between “a car” and “the car”?  Or between “a doctor” and “the doctor”?

How about “a store” and “the store”?

I think you get the point.  One could be any but if the word “the” is there, it is a specific one that all of us know.

It is “the” one and there is no other like it.

With that thought in mind, look at the following verse:Continue reading

I heard a quote this morning and it really struck “a cord” in me.  Maybe you will be fed by it too.

“God’s (highest) truth is the most beautiful thing we can ever discover but we can’t work directly for it. We must focus on the image and shadow version of him called “hard work, self-sacrifice,  and charity to others“. He is hidden inside the darkness and he appears as a free gift of light and life to us all to be revealed in his time” Unknown

I am still learning this one…so please be patient and forgiving with me when I stumble.

Have a great day.

Is there more to "sin", "son" and "sun" than we realize?

Is there more to “sin”, “son” and “sun” than we realize?

I never cease to be amazed by God.

He works in such mysterious and yet simple, “everyday” ways. I was just talking to my younger teen “son” about our Sunday goals before I release him to his computer. I started to hear a thought in my head (probably based on one of his simple yet profound thoughts) about the words “sin”, “son” and “sun”.

I knew I need to go look deeper to see what was going on. I have trained myself to pay very close attention to all my thoughts. I believe they are very important if we want to truly hear from God.

I know that the “sun” shines on the “earth” in our physical reality or our natural body. But, in the Bible God sometimes uses “son” and “sun” interchangeably. Also, he sometimes uses the word “earth” interchangeably with “body”. (Our “body” is even made of the “dust of the earth”) I believe this is NOT a coincidence.Continue reading

Will God really reign down fire or hail upon us?

Will God really reign down fire and hail upon us?

Once again this morning, I woke hearing a conversation.

Once I was fully awake, I began writing it down.  This experience is like if you have ever gone camping with others and they awake before you do and sit and talk in the background while you are sleeping.  When you “awake” you start to hear and understand more of what is being said.  Then, when I was fully “awake” today, it stopped.

As I was studying the scriptures that I was led to (based on what I heard), they prompted me to write this message. I apologize for the serious tone of it. I think a person who knows God and his character will be amazed by it as was I.Continue reading

Are feelings real?

Do you ever wake up one morning and suddenly everything appears dark and grim?

Situations and “things” that you viewed as very positive just the day before no longer appear that way at all.   As a matter of fact, they seem to be a burden rather than a blessing.

You feel like you were somehow blindsided by a Mac truck in the middle of the highway.   No, you feel you are STILL BEING RUN OVER by a Mac truck.

And is backing up and moving forward over and over.

You can’t even get a perspective to see what is happening.  You just hear the engine rev and see the tires coming again.

If you could only get out from under “it” to see what in the world is going on.

Whatever “it” is.Continue reading

Is God telling us more in all the numbers he uses to organize all his Word?

Is God telling us more in all the numbers he uses to organize all his Word?

This is a follow-up to “Part 1” I wrote on Monday.  This is what I sat down to share initially when the FIRE spoke within, but was so excited I never got to it.

That happens often.

I consider this the “meat” of what I wanted to share, but once I saw it, I was so in awe of God I wanted to sit and enjoy him with you first.  Sometimes I ramble on and on when that occurs.  Please forgive me for that.

I am astounded by his Word, both versions – written and living.  I have found the Written Word merely points to the living Word who is a spiritual man and God’s Son.   Then, Jesus the Living Word speaks to our hearts and reveals what the written means.  And it’s ALL good… for everyone.

What exactly is the “Written Word” or the book we call “the Bible”?Continue reading

Is it possible that God is MUCH closer than we realize?

 

“God” absolutely continues to astound me.

I hope you will allow me to share a glimpse of the powerful experiences he has been allowing me to experience the past three years.  Let’s face it.  Life is hard and is full of pain and heartaches. I certainly have my share.  I still have them, but in-between them I experience very high, mountain-top experiences that tell me “it is ok, I am taking care of all things for you”.  It’s all I need to hear to rest.

Do you want to see more of God and his amazing beauty and glory in your everyday, pain-and-trial-filled life?

It happens nearly every morning when I get up out of bed and go to my computer and simply ponder his written Word or an “idea” I can’t let go of. The living Word soon begins to speak and appear within to reveal something beyond wonder and imagination. It is so exciting, like an infinite jig-saw puzzle that he is putting the pieces together within me from a hidden, unending realm or world.

Sounds crazy, doesn’t it?Continue reading
