Intimacy

Sunday, March 29th, 2020

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians 1:

17  I pray that the Father of glory, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would impart to you the riches of the Spirit of wisdom and the Spirit of revelation to know HIM through your deepening intimacy with HIM.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Peter 3:

18  But continue to grow and increase in God’s grace and intimacy with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. May He receive all the glory both now and until the day eternity begins. Amen!

It is written by The Holy Spirit in 1st John 2:

5   But the Love of GOD will be perfected within the one who obeys God’s Word. We can be sure that we’ve truly come to live in intimacy with GOD

The Beloved Disciple wrote by The Holy Spirit in The Revelation of Jesus Christ, chapter 2:

7 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says

11 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says

17 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says

29 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says

Chapter 3:

6 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says

13 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says

22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says

When we pursue Agape Love, our intimacy with FATHER, Our Lord Jesus, and The Holy Spirit grows to the point where we have no problem in hearing what the Spirit is saying.  What could be more important right now?

Hindrances

Saturday, March 28th, 2020

Spiritual warfare occurs when GOD’S Word in your life is being challenged by the adversary.  The adversary’s intention is to discredit you.  If you can’t dispute Truth then you go after the witness and discredit his or her character. 

The adversary wants to discourage you and me from fully walking as Sons and Daughters.  He will steal, kill, and destroy those who allow themselves to be manipulated into believing his lies.  GOD’S Word activates.

Angels are activated because they hearken unto the Voice of THE LORD as it is written in Psalm 103:

20  Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of HIS Word.

This is why we must speak forth The Word in faith and expect the angels to be dispatched.  They do what they hear if it lines up with The Word.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Corinthians chapter 10:

4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ

When your perception is wrong, you will be hindered from being healed.  Jesus was hindered when He went to His hometown of Nazareth.  It is recorded by The Holy Spirit in Matthew chapter 13:

53 Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, that He departed from there. 54 When He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, “Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works? 55 Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? 56 And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?” 57 So they were offended at Him.

But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.” 58 Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

The people of Nazareth could not get past their own experience of seeing Jesus prior to the activation of His calling.  They were living in the past and could not embrace the reality of the present.  They saw the carpenter’s son and not the Son of Man.  Revelation is meant to shift us out of the past and embrace the Truth.  Satan attempts to deceive us by promoting those strongholds in our minds that oppose The Word.  The argument “I am not worthy” is frequently used but FATHER has blotted out our past when we repent.  We must accept that Truth and move on.

As it is written through Paul by The Holy Spirit in 2 Corinthians chapter 5:

17 Now, if anyone is enfolded into Christ, he has become an entirely new creation. All that is related to the old order has vanished. Behold, everything is fresh and new. 18 And God has made all things new, and reconciled us to HIMSELF, and given us the ministry of reconciling others to God. 19 In other words, it was through the Anointed One that God was shepherding the world, not even keeping records of their transgressions, and he has entrusted to us the ministry of opening the door of reconciliation to God

The adversary wants us to remain separated and in division with others.  He knows that if we become unified with Christ and each other, then the Kingdom on earth has arrived.  This is why the revelation of Agape Love is so critical in this hour.  Don’t let hindrances derail your pursuit to full maturity.

The Lighted Path

Friday, March 27th, 2020

Each of us has a pathway of light which is our destiny and FATHER will light that path for us.  In Psalm 16, The Holy Spirit reveals to us:

11 ​​You will show me the path of life;​​

In Your presence is fullness of joy;​​

At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

When we pursue HIS Word which is filled with power and authority to carry out HIS Divine Intent in our lives, revelation comes forth which will guide us in all of our affairs.  The more aligned we are with The Word, the less detours are taken away from that straight and narrow path.  There is only one path meant to lead us into all Truth surrounding our destiny.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Psalm 119:

105 ​​Your word is a lamp to my feet

​​And a light to my path.

106 ​​I have sworn and confirmed

​​That I will keep Your righteous judgments.

And in Psalm 18:

28 ​​For You will light my lamp;

​​The LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.

29 ​​For by You I can run against a troop,

​​By my God I can leap over a wall.

30 ​​As for God, His way is perfect;

​​The word of the LORD is proven;

​​He is a shield to all who trust in Him.

​35 ​​You have also given me the shield of Your salvation;

​​Your right hand has held me up,

​​Your gentleness has made me great.

36 ​​You enlarged my path under me,

​​So my feet did not slip.

The supernatural is not always the spectacular.  I don’t have to be knocked down on my face for FATHER to heal me.  I am fully satisfied to come to the realization that the sickness or disease no longer resides in my body.

Our Loving FATHER is not asking us to “pay” for our healing.  Our words and actions are meant to affirm the better Covenant as we perceive the lighted path FATHER has set before each of us.  Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 1:

17 I pray that THE FATHER of glory, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would impart to you the riches of the Spirit of wisdom and the Spirit of revelation to know Him through your deepening intimacy with him.

18 I pray that the light of God will illuminate the eyes of your imagination, flooding you with light, until you experience the full revelation of the hope of his calling—that is, the wealth of God’s glorious inheritances that he finds in us, his holy ones!

19 I pray that you will continually experience the immeasurable greatness of GOD’S power made available to you through faith. Then your lives will be an advertisement of this immense power as it works through you! This is the mighty power 20 that was released when GOD raised Christ from the dead and exalted Him to the place of highest honor and supreme authority in the Heavenly realm!

My soul allows Truth to permeate my body thus healing comes forth.  This is why our soul must be transformed by renewing our mind.  The body will respond to whatever is predominant in the soul.  Our actions will reflect the maturing of our mind.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Galatians chapter 3:

14 Jesus, our Messiah, was cursed in our place and in so doing, dissolved the curse from our lives, so that all the blessings of Abraham can be poured out upon even non-Jewish believers. And now God gives us the promise of the wonderful Holy Spirit who lives within us when we believe in him.

And The Holy Spirit recorded in Proverbs chapter 4:

20 Listen carefully, my dear child, to everything that I teach you,

and pay attention to all that I have to say.

21 Fill your thoughts with my words

until they penetrate deep into your spirit.

22 Then, as you unwrap my words,

they will impart true life and radiant health

into the very core of your being.

Our path of destiny is lit with the glorious Word and FATHER desires each of us to stay on that path of life so that we will walk fully in the revelation of Love and allow that Love to minister to all of mankind.  This is what life is all about.

Our Better Covenant

Thursday, March 26th, 2020

We have a better Covenant.  It is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 8:

8 Now this is the crowning point of what we are saying: We have a magnificent King-Priest who ministers for us at the right hand of God. He is enthroned with honor next to the throne of the Majesty on high. 2 He serves in the holy sanctuary in the true heavenly tabernacle set up by God, and not by men. 3 Since every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices, so the Messiah also had to bring some sacrifice. 4 But since he didn’t qualify to be an earthly priest, and there are already priests who offer sacrifices prescribed by the law, he offered in heaven a perfect sacrifice.

5 The priests on earth serve in a temple that is but a copy modeled after the heavenly sanctuary; a shadow of the reality. For when Moses began to construct the tabernacle God warned him and said,

“You must precisely follow the pattern I revealed to you on Mt. Sinai.”

6 But now Jesus the Messiah has accepted a priestly ministry which far surpasses theirs, since He is the catalyst of a better covenant which contains far more wonderful promises! 7 For if that first covenant had been faultless no one would have needed a second one to replace it.

The first thing each morning, we should engage the Spirit realm.  We must discipline our body lest we become disqualified to enter into HIS Presence.

The Holy Spirit enforces blessings over us thus we are to increase, not diminish.  We need to be joyful “receivers” and expect FATHER’S blessings to come forth.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 4:

14 Nevertheless you have done well that you shared in my distress. 15 Now you Philippians know also that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me concerning giving and receiving but you only. 16 For even in Thessalonica you sent aid once and again for my necessities. 17 Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account. 18 Indeed I have all and abound. I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things sent from you, a sweet-smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God. 19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 20 Now to our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.

FATHER is glorified when HE answers our prayers and we see the manifested results.  I give FATHER the glory and honor for meeting my family’s needs.

We need to release our past.  What is hindering our ability to receive from FATHER?  As we listen to the impulses of The Holy Spirit and not our flesh, our expectation to receive will dramatically increase.  We need to bring our minds into captivity in this area and not be moved by our current circumstances.  Our past does not dictate our future.

We have written much about tithing and cheerful giving.  That Truth is only the first half of Heavenly flow through us.  The Holy Spirit recorded the following in Deuteronomy chapter 28:

1 “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. 2 And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God:”

Anyone reading the blessings found in this chapter would be thrilled in receiving such rewards for obedience.  However, we have a better Covenant than this.  The New Covenant did not omit the blessings and result in an inferior covenant.  FATHER is the same as when HE originated the blessings of Deuteronomy chapter 28. 

The adversary constantly promotes scarcity, sin, and death to those who are willing to listen.  If scarcity doesn’t work then he promotes greed, also known as the “love of money”.  Do you really think FATHER expects us to spread the Gospel in tattered clothes and warn out shoes?

We need to embrace ALL aspects of our Covenant, not simply those areas requiring little faith.  Do not become complacent in moving forward in The Holy Spirit.  We need to hear and respond to The Holy Spirit in all areas so that we will walk in every aspect of our Covenant with FATHER sealed by The Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Otherwise, we have not fully honored His Blood!

Holy- Part 2

Wednesday, March 25th, 2020

In Acts chapter 3, Peter spoke by The Holy Spirit to those who just witnessed the lame man healed:

19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of THE LORD

What causes the streaming and refreshing presence of THE LORD to come?  IT comes to those who repent and are converted.  Any time I say or do something fruitless and selfish, I repent.  FATHER tells us that repentance blots our sins which also indicates that we do not need to carry around that guilt for future reference and regret.  We need to let it go because HE has!  This paves the way for us to be Holy, set apart for HIS use.  Repentance prepares the way for a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and we should be preaching repentance.

Peter also wrote by The Holy Spirit in his 1st epistle, chapter 1:

13 Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; 15 but as HE who called you is Holy, you also be Holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is written, “Be Holy, for I AM HOLY.”

If we did not have the capacity to be Holy, The Holy Spirit would not have instructed us to be Holy!!!  If you have a problem with this Truth, cast down that vain imagination for FATHER did not make a mistake when HE formed you in the womb by HIS Divine Intent of Love.  Start walking in Holiness.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 12:

14 In every relationship be swift to choose peace over competition, and run swiftly toward Holiness, for those who are not Holy will not see THE LORD. 15 Watch over each other to make sure that no one misses the revelation of God’s grace. And make sure no one lives with a root of bitterness sprouting within them which will only cause trouble and poison the hearts of many.

Is there not one believer who does not want a face-to-face encounter with THE LORD?  We are urged to pursue Holiness far beyond a casual means.  To run swiftly means to place a high priority on attaining Holiness.

A root of bitterness will impede our pursuit of Holiness.  We must pull those roots out of our innermost beings to insure we are not hindered in attaining Holiness.  We should be preaching Holiness to others as well.

Holiness will move us toward intimacy with Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Peter wrote by The Holy Spirit in his 2nd epistle chapter 3:

14 So, my beloved friends, with all that you have to look forward to, may you be eager to be found living pure lives when you come into His Presence, without blemish and filled with peace. 15 And keep in mind that our Lord’s extraordinary patience simply means more opportunity for salvation, just as our dear brother Paul wrote to you with the wisdom that God gave him. 16 He consistently speaks of these things in all of his letters, even though he writes some concepts that are overwhelming to our understanding, which the unlearned and unstable love to twist to their spiritual ruin, as they do to other Scriptures.

As Jesus said in the Beatitudes, “Those with a pure heart shall see GOD.”  Let each of us live a pure life in peace without blemish.  If it were not possible, The Holy Spirit would not urge us to live this way.  We are meant to be Holy, set apart for HIS use.  Our resources are included as well.  This is why my wife and I pray over our tithes and offerings for they are meant to be HOLY UNTO THE LORD.  FATHER appreciates our intent and rewards us accordingly. 

I give FATHER the firstfruits of each day in prayer as a HOLY offering as well.  I have no ulterior motive but to “run swiftly” to Holiness in all that I set my hand to.  The Holy Spirit gives me these writings and I am grateful to be the first recipient of what is on His Mind each morning for I have no agenda of my own.  These writings are meant to bring us into intimacy with Our Lord.  We should be preaching intimacy through prayer.  Now is not the time to be silent.

Holy

Tuesday, March 24th, 2020

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Galatians chapter 3:

1 What has happened to you Galatians to be acting so foolishly? You must have been under some evil spell! Didn’t God open your eyes to see the meaning of Jesus’ crucifixion? Wasn’t he revealed to you as the crucified one?

2 So answer me this: Did the Holy Spirit come to you as a reward for keeping all the Jewish laws? No, you received him as a gift because you believed in the Messiah. 3 Your new life in the Anointed One began with the Holy Spirit giving you a new birth. Why then would you so foolishly turn from living in the Spirit by trying to finish by your own works?

4 Have you endured all these trials and persecutions for nothing?

5 Let me ask you again: What does the lavish supply of the Holy Spirit in your life, and the miracles of God’s tremendous power, have to do with you keeping religious laws? The Holy Spirit is poured out upon us through the revelation and power of faith, not by keeping the law!

People wanted to use the Law as their crutch to allow them to “meet minimum requirements” rather than embrace the Divine Intent behind the Law.  The issue at hand is a “heart” issue, not a “behavior” issue.  Behavior is a product of the intent of the heart.

The current pandemic has revealed the self-centeredness of people in general.  One young man on Clearwater beach in Florida told the reporter “It’s an old people problem, not mine.”  What a selfish attitude reflected by those who are willing to sacrifice others for the temporary benefit of “self”.

Many people hide behind the law whether Biblical, civil, and/or criminal.  Many defense lawyers will go after a witness who tells the truth if they can ruin their credibility by finding a character flaw thus causing the jury to disregard the testimony.  Once again, selfishness is rationalized to become acceptable to society.  It takes faith in FATHER’S Word to remain unconvinced of the world’s ways when you see the injustices temporarily prevailing.

6 Abraham, our father of faith, led the way as our pioneering example. He believed God and the substance of his faith released God’s righteousness to him. 7 So those who are the true children of Abraham will have the same faith as their father! 8 God’s plan all along was to bring this message of salvation to the nations through the revelation of faith. Long ago God prophesied over Abraham, as the Holy Scriptures say:

“Through your example of faith all the nations will be blessed!”

9 And so the blessing of Abraham’s faith is now our blessing too! 10 But if you choose to live in bondage under the legalistic rule of religion, you live under the law’s curse. For it is clearly written:

“Utterly cursed is everyone who fails to practice every detail and requirement that is written in this law!”

11 For the Scriptures reveal, and it is obvious, that no one achieves the righteousness of God by attempting to keep the law, for it is written:

“Those who have been made Holy will live by faith!”

Holiness exposes selfishness in all of its various manifestations.  When the Standard walks into a room, unrighteousness is exposed and becomes anxious and uncomfortable.  As we fully ascend to Holiness, expect those responses.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Colossians chapter 3:

1 Christ’s resurrection is your resurrection too. This is why we are to yearn for all that is above, for that’s where Christ sits enthroned at the place of all power, honor, and authority! 2 Yes, feast on all the treasures of the heavenly realm and fill your thoughts with heavenly realities, and not with the distractions of the natural realm.

The world has been full of distractions intended to prevent us from fully maturing as Sons and Daughters of Our Heavenly Father and walk in complete Holiness.  It takes commitment to continue on the straight and narrow path known as The Way.  FATHER rewards those who diligently seek HIM with the richness of Heavenly treasures.

Romans 8:

11 Yes, God raised Jesus to life! And since God’s Spirit of Resurrection lives in you, he will also raise your dying body to life by the same Spirit that breathes life into you!

12 So then, beloved ones, the flesh has no claims on us at all, and we have no further obligation to live in obedience to it. 13 For when you live controlled by the flesh, you are about to die. But if the life of the Spirit puts to death the corrupt ways of the flesh, we then taste his abundant life.

We have the ability to walk in abundant life and put away death in our midst.  Jesus was not moved by the approaching lepers.  He was not concerned about contracting sickness or disease as He ministered healing.  His Holiness would not allow the enemy to attack Him in any manner.  As we move ever closer in our relationship with FATHER WHO IS HOLY, we too will take on the same attributes.  There will not be a selfish bone in our bodies!  Being led by The Holy Spirit makes us a Holy person… think about it.

Vision of Glory This Morning

Monday, March 23rd, 2020

“I awoke a few minutes before 5 A.M. and saw FATHER’S Glory coming forth from a two-story nondescript building close by. It was among a few buildings surrounding it but none were of note. The Glory shone forth out of the few windows of the second floor but FATHER’S Glory illuminated the night sky above the roof as well. I knew I would quickly and easily find the entrance and enter in. I had a sense of being minutes from disclosure of something needing to be revealed to me as the clock was approaching the top of the hour.”

The Gospel

Monday, March 23rd, 2020

“The Gospel” means good news. If you are totally focused on bad news, separate yourself from the bad news. Otherwise, you will not fully renew your mind to the Promises given to us by FATHER.

Beloved, build yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, and keep yourselves in the Agape Love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

We are called to be “history makers” not history watchers. This is done by yielding to The Holy Spirit.

Yield to The Holy Spirit

Sunday, March 22nd, 2020

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Galatians chapter 5:

16 As you yield freely and fully to the dynamic life and power of the Holy Spirit, you will abandon the cravings of your self – life. 17 For your self – life craves the things that offend the Holy Spirit and hinder him from living free within you! And the Holy Spirit’s intense cravings hinder your old self – life from dominating you! So then, the two incompatible and conflicting forces within you are your self – life of the flesh and the new creation life of the Spirit.

18 But when you are brought into the full freedom of the Spirit of grace, you will no longer be living under the domination of the law, but soaring above it!

We are given the direct solution to the flesh issue- yield to The Holy Spirit.  Can it be any plainer than this?  The two conflicting internal forces are totally incompatible thus your decision and actions determines which one you walk in.  As for me, I choose to yield to The Holy Spirit and disregard the cravings of “self”.  What are those cravings of “self”?  The Holy Spirit provides us a list:

19 The cravings of the self-life are obvious: Sexual immorality, lustful thoughts, pornography, 20 chasing after things instead of God, manipulating others, hatred of those who get in your way, senseless arguments, resentment when others are favored, temper tantrums, angry quarrels, only thinking of yourself, being in love with your own opinions, 21 being envious of the blessings of others, murder, uncontrolled addictions, wild parties, and all other similar behavior.

Haven’t I already warned you that those who use their “freedom” for these things will not inherit the kingdom realm of God!

Repent of whichever cravings you have been guilty of and allow The Holy Spirit to guide you into all Truth and when this happens, good fruit will begin to manifest in all areas of your life.  Paul lists these areas:

22–23 But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions:

joy that overflows,

peace that subdues,

patience that endures,

kindness in action,

a life full of virtue,

faith that prevails,

gentleness of heart, and

strength of spirit.

Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless.

24 Keep in mind that we who belong to Jesus, the Anointed One, have already experienced crucifixion. For everything connected with our self – life was put to death on the cross and crucified with Messiah. 25 We must live in the Holy Spirit and follow after him. 26 So may we never be arrogant, or look down on another, for each of us is an original. We must forsake all jealousy that diminishes the value of others.

If you truly believe Psalm 139:16 where each of us has a Divine book written about us before we were formed in the womb, you must not allow jealousy to come forth toward others.  They are special to FATHER just as you and I are special.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

9 But when the Spirit of Christ empowers your life, you are not dominated by the flesh but by the Spirit. And if you are not joined to the Spirit of the Anointed One, you are not of him.

10 Now Christ lives his life in you! And even though your body may be dead because of the effects of sin, his life-giving Spirit imparts life to you because you are fully accepted by God. 11 Yes, God raised Jesus to life! And since God’s Spirit of Resurrection lives in you, he will also raise your dying body to life by the same Spirit that breathes life into you!

That same SPIRIT lives in each of us and is restoring our dying bodies… think about it.  We must walk in faith as we embrace this passage.  Dwell on it night and day until it becomes fruitful in your life.

Isaiah wrote by The Holy Spirit in chapter 57:

15 ​​For thus says the High and Lofty One

​​Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:

​​“I dwell in the high and holy place,

​​With him who has a contrite and humble spirit,

​​To revive the spirit of the humble,

​​And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”

When we discover how insufficient we are without FATHER’S presence, we will become humble and contrite.  Those who think they don’t need GOD in their lives are in for a rude awakening.  At some point, everyone will experience the High and Lofty One.  It is our choice when we have that experience.  Purpose every day to yield to The Holy Spirit in all things.

Another Facet of Aura

Saturday, March 21st, 2020

Shared by Michelle in Canada:

“I find it rather fascinating that this pandemic is based on what is called corvid-19or corona virus 19. Have you considered the meaning of corona? In medical anatomic nomenclature, it means an eminence or encircling structure that resembles a crown. In science, it is the aura of plasma that surrounds the Sun and other stars. Adding to this, consider the meanings of the words used in the above: Eminence means great distinction or superiority; a person of high station. The etymology of aura is from Latin and ancient Greek meaning wind, breeze, or breath. In Middle English, it meant gentle breeze. One with any level of discernment should immediately see the connection to our Lord Jesus, who is crowned with glory and honor as the King of all. He wears the crown of the universe, of all of God’s creation as Son (Sun), the Light of the world. He has the highest station of all humanity and all created beings throughout God’s creation. He is above all and over all. He is superior and preeminent in all things: He is … the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the pre-eminence (Colossians 1:18).He is the life-giving spirit that breathes the life of God into people by His holy spirit, which the Mitchell translation calls the Set Apart Breath-effect. He is the fresh breeze that brings relief to humanity. He is the wind that blows across the globe to give new life. He is the breath of God. Apart from Him, there is only death, but in Him, there is abundant life. There is one more thing to note, and that is the number 19, which signifies faith or, as one commentator claims, faith and hearing together. According to E.W. Bullinger, nineteen is a combination of 10 and 9, and denotes the perfection of Divine order connected with judgment. Surely, you can see the connection in all of this, given the day in which we live. We are called to live by faith, and this faith is in the very one who gives us life and is coming as the Judge to rescue us and establish and perfect God’s order on earth. Our eyes must be opened—you see, it is time to awaken from our sleep—to see the very love of our life, our lover who is standing, ready to meet us in air. Our ears must be opened to hear His voice in this day. We have the anointing within us to hear the spirit of truth. We don’t need hearing aids any longer—that is, seeking out others for their voice, hearing through their teaching. The anointing will teach us all things. This, too, takes faith to believe—that He can and will speak to us directly in spirit.  When the Lord broke into my life nearly forty years ago, I saw Him standing as the conqueror over all of God’s creation. Today, I announce He is standing and His long-awaited arrival is imminent!”
