Thoughts to consider: Anchors for My Soul
God is giving us supernatural perspective. The Bible describes how God provides an army of angels to protect and surround the people of God. They got so intimidated, they could have given up the fight before the battle even begins. There is so much more in the spirit that we can imagine or see, We are not to fear because God is for us, not against us. The way the lines are drawn now in our country, God say we are not to condemn but to bless them and do good for them. The eyes were open after the word was given. The situation will try to do something to you. Flesh wars against flesh, but the spirit of God can break through through and reveal truth. God wants us to defeat the enemy with His weapons. When we respond to others with the heart of God, aggressiveness like ice will melt. Feed with a good word to give them hope. Put yourself in that mind and soul of the one who is attacking, warfare begins within him because of the love and heart of God. It confounds the mind. Everyone is seeking an encounter with God. There is an angelic presence around our life. The Word is anointed, inspired by God, empower by God, and enlightened by God. Declaring truth. It will guide us into all truth. Don’t approach the Word intellectually, ask the Holy Spirit to help. We will begin to develop a second nature that calls on God first instead of relying on our own ability, not just calling on God when our way doesn’t work. When we speak the Word of the Lord, we need to speak it in the spirit of the Lord. Health humiliation;ity is one of the strongest postures we have in life. Humility, trust, and faith.
give me understanding to learn your commands.
74 May those who fear you rejoice when they see me,
for I have put my hope in your word.
Mathew 6:10 your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
The kingdom of God is a spiritual reality. To receive Him and His kingdom, is to receive kingdom rule. It is possible to behave in the way God has for us, but we need to operate in grace, truth and power. His rulership is brought about the forgiveness of sin. Our flesh will want to try to be like God but not to be under His rulership.
Eph 4:17-1817 So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking.18 They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.
There should be a difference that people can see. When Christ is lifted up, all men will be drawn to Him.
2 Kings 6:8-24 Elisha Traps Blinded Arameans
8 Now the king of Aram was at war with Israel. After conferring with his officers, he said, “I will set up my camp in such and such a place.9 The man of God sent word to the king of Israel: “Beware of passing that place, because the Arameans are going down there.” 10 So the king of Israel checked on the place indicated by the man of God. Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that he was on his guard in such places.11 This enraged the king of Aram. He summoned his officers and demanded of them, “Tell me! Which of us is on the side of the king of Israel?”12 “None of us, my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.” 3 “Go, find out where he is,” the king ordered, “so I can send men and capture him.” The report came back: “He is in Dothan.” 14 Then he sent horses and chariots and a strong force there. They went by night and surrounded the city.15 When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked.16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.18 As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, “Strike this army with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness, as Elisha had asked.19 Elisha told them, “This is not the road and this is not the city. Follow me, and I will lead you to the man you are looking for.” And he led them to Samaria.20 After they entered the city, Elisha said, “Lord, open the eyes of these men so they can see.” Then the Lord opened their eyes and they looked, and there they were, inside Samaria.21 When the king of Israel saw them, he asked Elisha, “Shall I kill them, my father? Shall I kill them?”22 “Do not kill them,” he answered. “Would you kill those you have captured with your own sword or bow? Set food and water before them so that they may eat and drink and then go back to their master.” 23 So he prepared a great feast for them, and after they had finished eating and drinking, he sent them away, and they returned to their master. So the bands from Aram stopped raiding Israel’s territory. 24 Some time later, Ben-Hadad king of Aram mobilized his entire army and marched up and laid siege to Samaria
Prophetic Word: Dear Ones, I am anointing your eyes to have a new perspective, a supernatural perspective that changes the way you see things, changes the way you experience things, changes the way you process things. Whatever the enemy had put for you to cause you to stumble and fall, now you will see it through My eyes to run the race through and around every obstacle in your way. You will not feel defeated, You will not lose hope, but you will gain a heavenly perspective and see My heavenly armies at your side. (2 Kings 6:16-17)
Heaven will not be Boring
Discussion from Revealing the Mysteries of Heaven by David Jeremiah
Romans 8:22-23 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groaninwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.
Heaven will not be boring because your work will not be boring.
Heaven will not be boring because Heaven is the place you have always longed for.
Even before Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden (Genesis2) the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden to tend and keep it. ( Genesis 2:15)
From the beginning of mankind, God gave him purpose and responsibility. with the ability and skill to do this God instilled in man’s natural gifting. God will always anoint us to accomplish that which He has called us to do. Before sin, man experienced fulfillment and joy in fulfilling the commission.
The process of working, tending, keeping changed its nature into working as labor. It changed from serving into laboring, fatigue, weariness. Mankind by design needed meaningful and purposeful design.
There will not be any evangelists in heaven because everyone will be redeemed A most descriptive word we could use to des rice our lives in heaven are 1)Serve 2) Servant 3) Service These assignments and responsibilities given upon man’s creation will throughout time remain as God’s beloved children an expression of His Glory.
The Book of Revelation as you can see concerning the idea of Serve, Servant, Service in the following scriptures:
Revelation 1:1The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,
Revelation 6:11 Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow servants, their brothers and sisters,[a] were killed just as they had been.
and he who sits on the throne
will shelter them with his presence.
Revelation 15:3 and sang the song of God’s servant Moses and of the Lamb: Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are your ways, King of the nations.[a]
Revelation 19:5 Then a voice came from the throne, saying: “Praise our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, both great and small!”
Revelation 19:10At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus.”
Revelation 22:6 The angel said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true.The Lord, the God who inspires the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must soon take place.”
