Do you have unsettling sinful habits, weaknesses, torments, recurring bad fruit character flaws? I'm not talking about big things like murder or adultery I'm talking about areas in your life, in your thought patterns that keep you barreling like a hamster in it's wheel instead of exhibiting Galatians 5 victory?
Spiritual Housecleaning is a series I'm doing to help expose all those dark, dirty little things that the enemy would rather you think is just a normal struggle in your life.
You're here because you know there's abundant life, you've tasted it but a taste just won't do you want to live it!
Hi Freedom 1 here, with a little video crash course illustration about enemy access that ties us up from conforming into the image of Christ Jesus. I'll show how we get on the brink of agreeing with the devil how to overcome when the pressure is on, what happens when we blow it and how the sins of our forefathers haunt us and wear us down.
Helpful Resource links:
'Spiritual house-cleaning' is the process of freedom from demonic oppression. When we are examining ourselves find bad habits, bad fruit, evidence of unrepentant sin and we begin to cry out earnestly with desire to not only overcome, but to change at all costs doors of access begin to shut. Deliverance begins to happen.
When I began down this path of deep self examination I realized that I had issues. In reading the Word of God and comparing my Walk along-side of it... things werent adding up. I found myself identifying oh--too--well, with Saint Pauls lament in Romans 7:15, For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate.. . .

Another guide, prayers etc. on the subject can be found at my site under 'clean up your act':
Are you a God-ordained 'Teacher' of the 5-fold, in that the gifts have not passed away? If your drive is to open up and bless the body of Christ with any morsel of revelation of the kingdom of God. this is for you.
1.) Go with what you know. Nothing regurgitated. nothing from a book that you've read but not personally been through or God hasn't specifically shown you Himself. God gives all of us a facet if it weren't so then we wouldn't need a 'body of Christ'. There's nothing wrong with building upon more facets already out there, but if you hop on a bandwagon of sorts and it's not coming from the heart, it benefits no one and if it's not birthed from HIM, it's your own bad-self Pride that you need to be dealing with!
Some people put themselves in this position because they have a 'ministry' a 'following' that is expecting them every wednesday night at 7pm. Be careful people only do what you see the Father doing and don't get swept down the river with that old feeding trough trap.
2.) Go with what you know AND have Conquered, because. you'll be tested by your words. If you haven't conquered something and blab it out prematurely guess what? You're going to deal with it some more. It's not only the devil that stands before God and says, "Hey, they say they are over it, I just had them a moment ago, talk is cheapI ain't go'in nowhere unless they therefore STAND". but the enemy also enlists human weapons to rail against you, to whittle your faith down and make it even harder for you. Hey, let's face it the enemy is ruthless he knows you well. Your good witness is more important to snuff out than a christian that's minding their own business in unspiritual Logos-land. Teachers you know you're more accountable. If you don't have your 'stuff' together and the pressure is great and you fall what happens to the people that were listening to you?
I know, it's hard you start to get freedom and revelation and you get excited. But hold up lil' buck-a-roo don't let your excitement be captured by the enemy pushing you.
Part of the lie the enemy often pushes on people is that YOU HAVE TO BE FIRST. this is something 'new'. Nope, nothing new under the sun. There is no hurry if you are trusting in the Lord. You will absolutely know when the time is right to deliver the message of the Lord you'll be inspired, it will come out with an unmistakable anointing upon it; you will have peace and there won't be any feeding pearls to swine.
3.) God will bless you where you are at no task He commissions you with is too small or unimportant. I have an immense burden to teach but one day He told me to do the bible promise series here on YouTube. That doesn't require teaching. just reciting from the good book. What I didn't realize is what an important tool, weapon and blessing it is for me! BUT, He knows! Now it's a referral I use when helping others.
The same with doing 'Children's Church'. I simply turn on the camera when I teach the kiddies & then spend some time editing & then what happens? My kids LOVE the episodes! Not only do they sit through it once but they watch the fun video after the fact! Do I want the word of God in me? Do I want it rooted in my kids? YES!
3a.) God will bless you where you are at because God gives us these teachings first for ourselves! As I go through old teachings, I find blessings there. Teacher,. if you're not finding blessing in your own teachings if you don't feel that anointing there that excites you to go deeper analyze, was it you or God-ordained?
4.) Look at me vs. Look at God When you start a teaching as led by God, stay the narrow road. Are you equipping people or are you looking for accolades? People want to know how to go on deeper with God and how to be free. We are called to use our testimony, but there's a fine line there. Point to Jesus. Educate the people. And be 'Real' in your delivery-- don't only tell half of it cuz rest brings down your posh reputation. If you've conquered it. it shouldn't bug you anyways!
5.) Be You God has designed you and equipped you just as you are. don't squish yourself into the preacher on t.v. box of the month if that's not you. I have people call me a fake christian cuz I'm goofy instead of serious and stoic. but hey, I'm reaching who I'm supposed to all you cool people that watched this to the end!
If you're hungrily seeking God but find yourself at a crossroad of sorts and in need of direction, this episode is for you.
I don't have the time for doing a transcript for this one but let me expound that there are times when God gets a little quieter so that in your hunger to be in His will, you will pursue Him. In doing so, faith is tested and what we know to be true in the Word is proven.
1.) Knowing who you are in Him through the Word is paramount.
2.) Then I like to encourage people to take a spiritual giftings test... quoted from the teaching entitled Know Thyself - The Matrix.... I've often urged people to take a 'giftings test'...do a google on the internet for: WAGNER-MODIFIED HOUTS online and you can find an online test that will help you see what God has planted in you. Some people just mish-mash along doing a little bit of everything or they've been put in a box as a workhorse or find a position that looks better for their posterity than in really serving God.
3.) Discerning your thought life comes next... because if we allow those thoughts to tornado through our heads and confuse us.... if we agree with those thoughts or feelings, we become ineffective, waterlogged-- going around that mountain one more time sweet Jesus LOL! Check out Battlefield of the Mind - Discerning Thoughts. Not every thought is our own. Every verge of a deeper walk with Jesus involves a trying time... so that the dross in our life is burnt off and we are found worthy to take on more talents of the kingdom to multiply for the glory of God.
4.) After you become well-trained in taking those thoughts captive that do not align with the spirit of God... Congratulations.... now its time to press in hard to hear Him in all things. Now begins Battlefield of the Mind - Hearing God (another vid I've done).
Remember this is a process into conforming into the image of Christ, therefore, direction HAS to come from the Lord. And walking into His will for your life involves those tests that draw us nearer to God and prove our faithfulness to be His vessel. Seeking His direction is an awesome journey of growth, that doesn't come without price.
Sure, God can send us people to help us with direction... but we should be seeking Him more than asking everyone around us for advice!
Why is it so important to hear from God alone?.... well, man isnt perfect, and in the days to come, the deception will be so great that only those in intimate relationship with our Messiah will know what to do. Now thats direction to seek His direction!
'The Skinny on sharing your Testimony'
Why do it?
1. Why we need to testify... It's plain in the word of God.... in the book of Revelation 12:11 "But they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony..."
I also want to add that by stepping out verbally is part of a process...
In 1 Corinthians 2:4&5 we hear Paul say, "My conversation and my preaching were not with persuasive words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of the Spirit and of power so that your faith would not be based on human wisdom but on the power of God."
Your testimony is a shoe-in for people to be receptive to the power of God, and the process we go through is less and less of Us (as Paul was talking of those 'persuasive words of wisdom') but instead more and more of the physical presence of God flowing through us touching people. So He's laid this burden upon my heart to encourage people in sharing their testimonies... like an athlete has to train the body, we too should be taking heed of the scriptures and step out into being a vessel for the power of God.
2. Multiplication with a video is wisdom. If you find yourself repeating your testimony to people, consider all the people out there that could benefit from it that you don't personally run across. Consider getting it out there 24/7 for people to come across and be blessed by it, by the direction of the Holy Spirit. Seems like a no-brainer. If you cast the net, Jesus will fill it, but the key is that you have to get that net out there. Want to catch one fish... tell your neighbor.... want to allow God to do more, put it in a medium that can reach many.
3. Reaching the one. It's not about quality. The Spirit of God on a piece is felt regardless... and although multiplication is wisdom, as far as quantity... we could be used as a shepherd that goes after the 1 from the 99. So-- after publishing a video, and not getting responses, don't lose heart... you could be the only one to reach one that would then turn around and reach millions. Can you see the honor in that? Some sow, some water and some harvest... each cannot live without the hand of the other and each is equally important in the Kingdom.
4. Builds our own faith. When our past is healed, we can give praise to God, which of course, encourages others (if you got through it, I can get through this too!). The very act of delivering your testimony can be a powerful signpost for you.
So let's talk about Getting Hands-on and doing it!
From 'Bystander' to Participant
Special background musical thanks: D. Glas (Douglas Stambler)-Convergence (modern classical)
Uhmm, not for Atheists... this is for 'Christians', so 'comments' are by approval only : )
I think the era for debating anything is over because the time of the gentiles has been fulfilled.... and because of that..."They will not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' for they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,'..." [Jer. 31:34/Hebrews 8:8-12][See video: Age of Gentiles Prophecy Fulfilled (Fleshed Out)]
Just like my gray hair there are times and seasons for everything. ages, if you will.
In 1964 the big bang theory was solidified by proof through Cosmic microwave background radiation; whereby before that point, atheists pushed that the universe was infinite. With this discovery of a starting point that mirrored the Word of God. with the fulfillment of the Age of the Gentiles just 3 years later are we paying attention to the times?
"And they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest...." (Hbr 8:11) What are many doing still trying to prove God with words then?
[Proverbs 9:7-8 "Whoever corrects a mocker is asking for insult; whoever reproves a
wicked person receives abuse.
Do not reprove a mocker or he will hate you; reprove a wise person
and he will love you."]
Perhaps asking for abuse?
No, I believe that it's not about proving anything with arguments anymore... now is the time to manifest the word and make it become flesh by 'doing greater works than these'as He promised we ARE to do.
["I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father." (John 14:12)]
Think about it if we lay hands on a sick unbeliever and they are healed and we share with them by whom they are healed in power and demonstration in the name of Jesus... what is going to speak louder?
...Continued at: www.hearingGod.tv
This is a little something to flesh out the proof that the 'Age of the Gentiles' has come to an end. Sure, many of you realize this-- it's old news, but have we gleaned what this really means? I'll touch on it during this and in a teaching to come as we are not to sit idle and say 'Yep, it happened it's true' but not change and conform to where God is heading with His ultimate plan.
Please refer to this link reference for the 'gist' of this message: www.assemblyofyahshua.com/gentile.htm
If Hebrews 8:11 states: "And they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest." then we need to consider that it's not about 'talk' anymore. If we are to provoke the Jews to jealousy, how is that to happen? Is it maybe by conforming into the image of Christ and doing 'greater works' than these?
1 Corinthians 2:4-5 "My conversation and my preaching were NOT with persuasive words of wisdom, but with a DEMONSTRATION of the Spirit and of power so that your faith would not be based on human wisdom but on the power of God." (Emphasis mine).
What is Spiritual Warfare, why do we need it? Why would Jesus tell us to bind and loose if He took care of it all at the cross? I'll be sharing the importance of the application... the appropriation for what Jesus did here on this episode of hearingGod.
Spiritual warfare is the next step for a spirit-filled, born again overcomer. It is one thing to believe the promises of God, but an overcomer steps into the ministry of Jesus... doing what He did, and even 'greater works than these'.
Spiritual warfare is simply the implementation or the applying of the blood of Jesus, and the application, with authority, regarding of the word of God. It is you saying 'I only do what I see the Father doing'. It is NOT in running around picking fights with the devil... which is a dangerous contrivance of the flesh. If God doesn't lead, you will not succeed!
A spiritual warrior realizes what this statement means: "Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do". That we war not against flesh and blood, but powers and principalities... that evil spirits influence people, cities and nations... and that we, in the power of His blood, have His authority to bind the demonic from operating, and loose the things that align with the Spirit of God here on earth.
When a person can understand that humans are influenced by spirits, fear can be overcome. "What can man do to me?" (Psa 56:11, Psa 118:6) This of course does not make us 'above the law' of common sense... If we stray away from seeking His will and in doing only what we see the Father doing... we will reap the consequences of presumption.

Hearing God is never a method but how do you learn to hear the voice of God?
I'll share a little bit of my personal experience in this episode of hearingGod.
Part of the Battlefield of the Mind is that you want to hear His voice, His direction and plans for your life. He knows best, right?
First things first... we need to understand that the Word of God is true. If we hit some grey areas then we need to seek God and ask Him to show us, and then be open with all of your senses to how He shows up.
Hearing God is a relational lifestyle. You do some talking, you do some listening. Do your friends like to hear vain repetition from you? You certainly don't appreciate not being listened to. Well, you have to view your relationship with God just the same. I'm not big on 'methods', but it's pretty clear in the scriptures that God tells us what to do.
Mat 7:7-8 "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened."
So, lemme share some stories with you...
The person that brought me to the Lord was so on fire for God. He'd ask God every single thing... and one day he was sharing a testimony about how he asked God if he should have a snack or take a nap... and He had an impression of the answer and so he did it, & then all this drama happened later & it caused him to have to stay up all night or something so because he took this nap, he was 100% physically unfazed the next day. So he was just praising God because of something so simple... that he asked God, that he heard God and because of that obedience, in any circumstance he was kept in perfect peace and in strength.
So how does God speak? Can you use your imagination? Anything of your senses, including dreams. Things that repeat in your day... you might not get it the first time or two, but when He keeps putting it in front of you, you have to ask yourself is this really coincidence, or is this something I need to pay attention to?
Another bit of sharing of something that happened to me recently...
I had a person contact me over a comment I had in one of my videos where I was saying that the KJV is the best all-round version to stick with. So he was dogging that a bit saying that there was omission/replacement of the Creator's true name with Lord... yadada, yadada. Go check out this website the actual name is Yâhuwshúa` or Ya-hweh. So I asked God that night, cuz I was feeling a little unsettled and then that night He gave me a dream...
In the dream I was at a track... preparing for a race. People were getting dressed for the final run. The female coach was bent on a sort of favoritism for 2 of the other runners... they were good at running. The coach didn't seem to care for anyone else.
When it got real close to race time, I asked "where is my jersey & shorts?" & the coach snottily said I wasn't allowed to race because my previous race times were not totaled up and signed by a coach. Suddenly I was forbidden to run because of a technicality? I was angry... the coach clearly would not help me over this issue that wasn't my fault, and wouldn't allow me to approach the start line to appeal to judges over a very simple matter. End of Dream...
When I awoke I had a parable play out like a waking dream... a vision, if you will.
--Continued. For full transcript visit:
The Lord is leading me into a focus on the battlefield of the mind-- the final frontier...
In 2Corinthians 10:3 we read, "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh."
If more people could pin the tail on the real donkey and understand why Jesus exclaimed "Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do"... mankind is under the prince and power of the air's influence. As seekers of God, it is important to seek the difference in that man can activate thoughts by God or the enemy into the flesh. One brings forth the Kingdom of God, and one aligns with the accuser of the brethren.
Let me back this up though because my heart is to exhort and teach believers, but why not include even a person that is in denial about God? A person that says... "I looked for God but He never showed up"? Wow, that's the best and most noticeable situation to be in... IF you are sincerely looking for answers. The devil doesn't want you to make a decision for Jesus... perhaps all the other times you looked, the devil cleverly talked you out of how God was answering your prayers or speaking to you. Now is the time to Pay Attention to your thought life.
After I went through a generational deliverance session... I was amazed how quiet my noggin was! I used to have tons of thoughts always racing through my mind... always judging others... constant daydreams playing our scenarios of 'what to do next' or 'what should I have done' in past situations. I hadn't realized how scatterbrained I had been... how much overtime my mind was doing, processing so many things at once.
Some time after I renounced all the sins that granted all that extra chatter in my head via the sins of my forefathers... I was viewing an online exhibition of Tibetan artwork. I was viewing the most horrid multi-armed, fang-faced, knife-weilding, blood-thirsty statue and I heard.... "Oh, it's beautiful" in my head. HELLO... not my thought... no way.... no how!...

Need some 'fighting scripture' to secure who you are in Christ Jesus? Good link:
I get so upset when I come across people that judge and condemn whole church people groups and call them 'of the devil', deceived or lost. True it may be that the head of that church is in a downward spiral with misguided ecumenism that invites the enemy in OR, a church that completely rejects the giftings of the spirit. The fact of the matter is, is that God is calling us all individually. He's calling us ALL out and all to go on higher in Him. He doesn't see the divisions.
Let me read a little of the good book to illustrate:
Mat 24:40-42 "Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two [women shall be] grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come."
And what about the scripture of the wheat and the tares? Everything is growing right alongside each other.
Can you see that only He can see into our hearts? He doesn't say this denomination is better then this other one. All He says is "good and faithful servant" or "away, I never knew you". It's either you pass or you fail on an individual basis. Does He distinguish between the Samaritan or the little child? Who are we to play judge? Shouldn't we be minding our own hearts... and perhaps trembling at that?
Who are we to decide his plan and purposes, His ways, His messengers, His moves? Why should we care if he pays those hired in the eleventh hour the same as those hired the first?
When we as individuals judge denominations or past moves of God etc. we #1. alienate ourselves from reaching people in those groups. I mean really... is anyone going to listen to you after you call them damned? Really? #2. It is true something might have gone bad and true we would never support such a thing in it's current state but what if at one time it wasn't bad.... if we blatantly damn the whole thing we void everything good that God had done within it. And what about the people that lacked the discernment to know when the tide had changed? Those people that had a taste of God doing that new thing in power, in demonstration. And now they too are damned and by this judgement their faith is ruined. Why would we want to do that when we can reach them by agreeing with the good and separating out the bad? Can we walk into a room and be a light? Jesus wants us to be a light, not an idiot blinding furnace that burns everything up in our wake. There are hungry people in all denominations and the lost as well... they are all seeking Him. He wants us to be sowers, waterers, that light... a sign that points the way to Him.
This inherent judgement... you know what I'm talking about. Everybody seems to be on the damning the catholics roadshow lately... or damn the charismatics... how about Toronto... how about Todd Bentley? The thing we need to realize is that when God breaks through to do a new thing, it is then attacked by the enemy until it is discredited or stopped.... or peters out. Or, it goes down because of unpurified flesh or when the next new thing wants to springboard from it, but man is too comfortable or fearful and won't go there. But how foolish are any of us to throw the baby out with the bath water?
With more given, more is required....if you wanna fly you have to cut off the sandbags.... and when they are not purified and snipped off... then that's when a minister or move of God goes down. God cannot be represented with a garment of stains. But the real question is, is can we ever learn from our mistakes???
Do you wonder why we have to keep starting all over again? We can't seem to Prove all things; and hold fast that which is good. (1 Thessalonians 5:21) Can we take the good and build on it instead of throwing the entire thing out? Can we go back and discern that fresh new thing that God was doing from the point that it got tainted by the flesh?
And what about the people? Does anyone care about the souls involved here?
I want to speak to the broken and wounded here...Have you tasted God doing a new thing and the enemy jumped in and the flesh destroyed it? Do you suddenly feel a bullseye on your back? Is your faith in danger of shipwreck? Stand with me on the outside and see the enemy's strategy... see what is really going on and now see that Jesus, is the best mediator between God & man. Take that which was good and now build upon it, with your head held high, because you serve the King of Kings & Lord of Lords, the Messiah-- Jesus.
Right now I just want to pray for you... and for those of you (myself included) that have ever sat in judgement against our brothers and sisters in Christ... let us ask for forgiveness right now.
Ask God to build upon that foundation and to heal your wounds realizing that He is working all things to the good on your behalf.
Just because a person doesn't go to a 4 walled church doesn't mean they are not under a God ordained Pastor or in communion with teachers He sends etc. That's the key though, whom HE sends. God ordains position, not man. Somehow Jesus went all over with His disciples and He had them doing 'church' together, as opposed to being bound by the temple which had corrupted leadership, fleshly teaching and money as the focus. (Funny, not much different today...)
God will not be boxed, nor those that trust in Him.
In John 10:9 Jesus says, "I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture." Let me elaborate... first we go through the door of Jesus unto salvation...but then it says "...shall go IN and OUT, and find pasture." See that freedom there?
In my early spirit-filled days the Lord would always put the oddest people in my life that held the anointing. I remember the first one... he stuttered, was blunt & teased too much & seemed like a lack of mental physical development was in his bloodline. But I'd go to prayer meeting and in him I'd see this light switch turn on & it's like he wasn't there...it was God sitting there speaking to me. I honored this man as a vessel of God-- I knew he was plugged into God & it was amazing--- he'd always reiterate, "Look who God can use!" But having drug my dad along with me to those meetings...we'd go home & I'd have to listen to my dad & then other members of the family make fun of this man of God & not 'get it'...all they remembered was when the light switch was off.
Then another was an obese woman-- again... that light switch... it was HIM...it was so wonderful....I served her in any capacity-- just excited for the next time HE showed up through her.
My point is to view everything in the spirit, NOT under the heavy hand of the flesh. The age thing, the look or any of that physical stuff... degrees, diplomas mean nothing to me. Poor quality video or audio means nothing to me.... obedience is everything and His mark on a person's life is what I listen to. I've prayed over people that were ordained pastors, but that's not whom God said that person was.
Can my words smack you around a little bit? Really? How often are we even entertaining angels unawares? Wake up spirit-man and pay attention with this ((heart)). Delay this ((mouth)).

You ever hear about occult members going into institutional church and doing witchcraft? Worshiping alongside of believers in Jesus, saying the prayers but focusing on their little 'g' god? Makes you wonder doesn't it, how do christians give such credence to the enemy's followers who infiltrate the church, but what does the church do? It retreats to it's box and believes anything outside of the box is bad. That sure sounds like a recipe for realllllly missing God to me. In fact...doesn't it only take one bad thing to fart in the box and taint and leaven the whole batch?
What makes a thing 'good' or 'bad'? If the occult person is focusing on their little 'g' god in a christian church environment... pulling on that love around them & going in the complete opposite direction... does that show you the power all humanity possesses by what we choose to empower in the mind? The most successful 'positive thinking programs' out there use all the precepts in the bible but devoid of honoring or recognizing Jesus.
(Jhn 10:1"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber.)
See here poses the problem... the Word of God does not return void.... it's true whether it's for the believer in Jesus or if it's only a salad bar for the unbeliever. The Word of God contains the keys to life.
Of course... you know these occult people can only bear evil fruit in a place that is devoid of worship in Spirit and truth... if they enter in amongst those borne of Spirit and truth, they get exposed and many so overwhelmed they find the encounter with the power of the One true God a life-changing one, one way or the other!
But what about the churches that are not spirit-filled?
I have an interesting testimony... in that part of it was being led out of institutionalized church into a setting that reflects more of what the disciples experienced as a home-church setting. Of course anyone I share this with looks down upon me and my family and see it as a forsaking unity with the brethren etc., but God says 2 or 3 gathered... it's not quantity but quality in true unity aligned with His purposes.
I want to share a bit of background that led up to this decision...
There was a lot of seeking God going on in a small group setting that we met with weekly, apart from institutional church. Through this group, both my husband and I went through a thing called 'generational deliverance', whereby we canceled any curses passed onto us by our forefathers and we also shut doors that we had opened up ourselves, that let us open to attack from the enemy. Our spiritual eyes became opened and we plunged into a deeper union with Jesus as all those generational voices became silenced... we could Hear the voice of God clearer. We began to have dreams, see visions, seeing the presence of spirits, whether good or bad and move prophetically. Then the dichotomy began...

Stay tuned... I'm going to add onto this train of thought in the next episode of hearingGod
New World Order, Bohemian Grove, Aliens, UFO's....if you're into spiritual warfare, these things are all too familiar in your vocabulary. BUT, have you heard of the latest invasion for overcomers?
Exposing darkness. Is it important? Yes! Wake up the sleepers-- very important. But church.... I'm noticing a new attack zone that's as old as old leatherbelly offering Eve an apple in the Garden of Eden. It's simple.... tell the truth but add in a lie.
It's hard when trying to wake up the church in exposing a lie with some of this stuff... especially the stuff that has completely penetrated our society like yoga and tibetan sand mandalas. Yoga has a health benefit attached and with mandalas, I've heard many a christian argue that it's just a pretty art form. Never mind the occultic underlying things that people want to attribute to superstition or 'they don't really mean that'.... c'mon the truth is strange. Most of the church rejects supernatural anything... turn the cheek... nope, didn't see that. People are quick to reject anything on the other side of the fence... especially any mere mention of anything regarding the enemy's camp. We know we can't dwell on that side of the fence but we must be aware of what's going on over there to have an effective offense. Eeegad! Even the army operates this way!
A trend I'm now seeing that we need to be wary of is members of the occult masquerading as 'christians' and supposedly 'exposing' this darkness. Having some 'appearance' of Godliness. YouTube is infested with it. And this is the challenge.... dividing the truth from the lie.
We cannot bury our heads in the sand.... what do we do?
1 Thessalonians 5:21 "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good."
BUT the enemy quotes the scriptures toooooo! That is the problem folks....the only way to tell is by the anointing (or lack of it) coming off of the media you are in-taking, and by watching the fruits that are produced.
The other day I was watching something that had all the right exposing media... it used scripture, but when it was done my spirit was troubled. Something was wrong, so I prayed & Jesus asked me "What is the spirit on this video that's troubling you?"..... ah, yes Lord.... it IS a spirit & it's one of confusion and FEAR. Then He told me to look at the fruits produced, so I looked at the comments for the video and then it was all too clear. The video owner was attacking and judging other christians etc.
Again, exposing darkness has it's place-- there is definitely a need for warriors to do so especially in combating the enemy leavened batches... but we have to also ask ourselves where do we need to spend most of our time?We all have to ultimately remember it's not about exposing satan, so much as it is getting close to the one whom has saved us. And as we are conformed into His image our fruit bears Greater Works. It is deliverance and healing and love that conquers satan... and who is it that is commissioned to do these Greater Works? These Greater Works of signs and wonders of the kingdom of God in the Holy name of Jesus? Our focus is not to be in heady knowledge of what the enemy does so much as it is in the anointing of Jesus pouring out as rivers of living waters through US!
[Prayer and impartation to feel the anointing of God and the greater gift of discernment]
Philippians 4:8 "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things."
I had a dream of being in school & at the biology room where it was 'test day'. I was nervous of how I'd do but then the teacher explained that the final score for the class was based on the combined score... the average of all the tests combined --that's just how it normally is LOL, BUT what was interesting was it was always the same test to be taken, so I was optimistic that each time I'd get an improvement.
I believe the test answers are to reflect LIFE...isn't that what it's always been? And the Biology room-- also called Life Sciences, points to something experiential that we must endure.
Deu 30:19"I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants,..."
But it's more than LIFE....
It goes on in the next verse in Deu 30:20 to say:"...by loving the LORD your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them."
WARNING: Tests are coming!--- Duh!...nothing new under the sun.... we need to turn our face to God as a nation here. But hey...you...people that call yourselves children of God, how do you view these 'tests'? Do you look at them with anxiety and fear or do you look at them with optimism...as a chance to refine and improve?
God is speaking to us church!
Have you ever had to hand wash an article of clothing before? Now c'mon, you don't just put soap on there & wring it together one time & rinse. No. If you've done this before you know this is a process...a rinse, repeat, maybe some soaking in between... but you do it til' the spots are gone or you have to throw out the garment or use it as a rag because else the haze of that spot would be embarrassing. Are you listening here?
Without spot or wrinkle. Are we looking forward to getting out that spot?
You better look forward to it... "Whom the Lord loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives." -Hebrews 12:6
Did you know that is our wedding garment and you have 2 choices.... get out that spot or throw the garment away. But don't you know you're not going to be able to just pick another one up at the store...nope, the store is closed. With each rinse and repeat....with Joy....we should be exclaiming....see, look here, you can't see it so much, it's going away---get out the soap and enthusiastically wash it again...
Didn't you know Jesus is an environmentalist? He doesn't like to throw anything away. Everything in His plan has purpose-- even those seeming bad or hard times. As the sun is setting & the light is fading...Oh, look here....I can still see this spot when I hold it at an angle, let's get out that soap again.... we'll get it this time. We have to get it out before all the light is gone and then I won't be able to tell anymore.... the garment has to be spotless and then dry overnight...
No, the ones that are too proud & think they know it all think they'll just pick up another garment at the store--- whoops, that was wrong revelation, i'll just pick and choose one of the other flavors here in the cheese case.... but that's not how it's going to be, is it? You can't even buy oil this late... every man to his own lamp! Do you have your own relationship with Jesus?
How are you looking at the test, bride?
Revelation 7:14 ... "These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Are you unequally yoked in marriage or know others that are, and are struggling? The help you (or they) need is found by knowing oneself in Christ and addressing spiritual problems by spiritual means.
i've got two real-life illustrations for you...
in example one, we've got michelle & bert. you could say they are a little more than unequally yoked...michelle is minimally spirit=filled and bert is an unfilled baby christian. i used to be very close to michelle, but now we are totally estranged due to a sneaking spiritual demise...i'll explain & you watch these events unfold...
after marriage, michelle absolutely must give up all of her 'guy friends' to appease her husband & i am hardly seeing her either. now that probably sounds normal. so, michelle & i communicate via email & she shares how her husband doesn't like the spirit filled church she's been in since she became a christian. "hmm," i think..."something ain't right here." she also mentions how he's getting jealous & possessive of her & won't allow her to go anywhere. then he tells her he wants children when they discussed & agreed b4 marriage that it wouldn't be good medically for her. they begin to fight a lot. he gains weight. she realizes he is slipping into sin--refuses to go to church w/ her. she decides that she is going to be a proverbs 31 woman & win him to Jesus by her good example (remember what happens when you do a thing based on works...yep, she only fed the demanding, controlling spirit, driving this whole thing into deeper bondage). so, bert starts to have medical problems--high blood pressure. she quits her job at his request. she does about everything but wipe his butt, and he is not changing. michelle is experiencing medical problems & now fights depression. she gets a new email address because he now doesn't approve of our friendship, so instead of making waves she hides our continued friendship. then, i'm told they are going to a nice & quiet methodist church he likes. her 'good example' is now an expected par. he finds out about our secret friendship & now hangs betrayal over her head. when i try to shed light on the situation, my words are twisted, she takes it out on me & our friendship is over. can you say, downward spiral? but that was just what went on in the physical realm....
now i'd like to share a testimony of not only a spirit-filled christian, but seasoned warrior as well, we will call her becky. her husband, bob, is a long-time christian but a baby as far as spirit-filled. bob is in a current back-slidden state.
one morning becky is going into her normal prayer time and realizes something is wrong. she is noticing that, that sweet communion in the Lord that she normally has in a short period of time wasn't coming. in fact, she notably felt hindered...

Whether you are married or part of a small covenant group, supporting another brother or sister in the Lord needs to mirror that patience that the Bridegroom displays with us.
Hello I'm freedom 1 with www.hearingGod.tv & today I'm talking about "Supporting Your Other". I'll be using an example from within my marriage today, but this isn't for just married people... this understanding is broader, as in people in a covenant relationship-- beyond marriage, who's your accountability partner, or your inner circle you share with? So if you're single but in a small prayer group or the like, this is definitely for you too.
On to my story:
I was purchasing an item from someone in our locale via an online message board, and so I was arranging a pay and pick-up for the items. I remembered that my husband had business in that part of town & asked him if he could go get them. So, I forwarded him my email chat with the seller so he could see the price and the address in which to pick up the items from.
Later, I receive an email from the seller telling me my husband left twice as much money as he was supposed to & that although she appreciated it, that if it was an error, that she'd be happy to refund the extra money. This comes after a few riffs and tiffs earlier in the week where I just didn't feel listened to by my wonderful spouse.
The amount of money wasn't enough to really worry about... I figured he didn't pay attention to the email and thought it was that amount per item & not for both together.... sure enough He confessed that later. But... I found myself so hung up on the fact that he didn't pay attention that I took it personally and got angry about it. My response to the seller was: "Nope, men that don't pay attention to directions should lose their money. --Ha ha."
What happens next???? Due to length restrictions, for a full transcript, please visit: www.hearingGod.tv
When you walk in being an overcomer life radically changes. You begin to be challenged on every front. The pressure builds not only from the enemy, but God's purifying fire as well, because it's how we escape the pressure that determines our 'peace' in Him.
What is this pressure that we have to endure?! You know what I'm talking about... the financial leaps of faith, the physical attacks on our bodies, any relationships we have... absolutely everything needs covered in prayer now. You find yourself repeating that line from the 'matrix' saying "Why, why didn't I take the blue pill?" At times the intensity so great and no 'seasons of refreshing' in sight...we long to escape the pressure.
This is for all of you out there actively taking authority over every principality and power for the Lord Jesus Christ. If you're not slamming this stuff at His direction beneath His footstool, this program isn't for you...you just won't understand. If I could write the day to day details of my life...doing all the mundane requirements of life, the prayer shielding, caring for my family, the targets that the Lord has shown me to hit, the dominions I'm in the process of taking, the spiritual battles in the night and seeking the Lord in His word and finding the quiet time alone with Him Alone.... it could make a good tv mini series.
As you go on deeper with God more is required of you. Your life must become like that Indiana Jones and the Holy Grail movie....where Indy was standing at that precipice... having done all things...with nothing left to do except for trusting what the instruction hint was... to go out in Faith. And also notice in that movie that the whole while the enemy was right next to him... that's how it is for us. Each step of the way the pressure is right there and we are called to live by faith in the word.
I want to go deeper now in illustrating this whole pressure and escapism thing, because it'll really get you to evaluate some of these weak points in your own life.
I'm gonna use the example of alcohol for this visual, but you need to take the precepts behind it to examine your own escapism.
So the spiritual dynamics behind this is like a bully tactic mentality. The enemy turns the pressure on so hot and all day long we just war it half-butted because we're just tired of it all...day in, day out. By the end of the day we just had enough & would just prefer to ignore it...but that's the thing...you drink a little & then the enemy eases off because the goal is to train you like a rat to always go to the bottle for relief. Instead we're supposed do what I have to do with my son. With my son, I just drop EvErYthing and focus on him alone....so that's what we have to do with the enemy & hit the bully back....make him pay and hold the ground. Remember the movie "Back to the Future"? Marty's dad, George, was under the bondage of that bully... but then in that future altering moment.. when He socked the bully... Marty's whole universe changed. Wine is still good, so long as it doesn't become a crutch...so long as it doesn't become an escape. We have to recognize whatever is hounding us for what it is, scream "STOP" and then go to Jesus, not a bottle, not a bathroom, not the refrigerator... etc! Decide that you are not going to be trained like a rat any longer. Jesus wants you to come to Him. He allows the enemy to sift you with this pressure to see what you'll do. Can He really entrust you with more talents of the Kingdom? Prove it!
Running to and fro? The scriptures have been fulfilled... the end of the gentile church occurred in 1967. Be aware of what 'church' really is.
Recently the Lord put a person in my path that kept asking me about various prophets on cable tv. I said I don't have time to listen or to do anything but that Jesus puts it before me Himself. Claiming to be a prophet, she said "Oh, I just watch it for confirmation on the words I get."
So here I am to reply with what God says about this mentality on this episode of hearingGod...
In Matthew 24 we are warned: 23 Then if anyone says to you, Look, here is the Christ! or There! do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.
26 Therefore if they say to you, Look, He is in the desert! do not go out; or Look, He is in the inner rooms! do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.
And in the book of Daniel (12:4) we hear: "...even to the time of the end many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall be increased."
So how do we fall into this trap? By expecting manna to be in one place, perhaps? Remember each day the Israelites had to pitch the old and go out and collect new else it would rot. Perhaps we become so Man focused that we forget that we are supposed to be God focused instead? Now remember this is what it says of the end times...--28 "For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together." Isn't it interesting that the biblical interpretation of what an 'eagle' represents is a prophet!
Remember, I'm just reading the word of God here.
What was really funny was that this same individual seemed to have a problem that I am not in a church box anymore. I explained that church is 2 or 3 gathered in His name not some big assembly. Or maybe I should've said eagles sitting around a carcass!
The fact of the matter is that the age of the gentiles has been fulfilled...

The devil can't be everywhere at once, so how does his strategy of assault advance? Delegation. Get ready for a road-trip of discernment on this episode of hearingGod...
I really want to sharpen some spiritual swords in this message and get into the mindset of being on the offensive instead of the church at large mentality of being only on the defensive. The problem with this kind of teaching is that it's got invisible spiritual dynamics that the church has been taught to reject because 'it's weird' or whatever excuse... instead of testing everything & retaining that which is good. A spiritually blinded society tends to see the bad fruit, or the symptoms of the enemy's hand, in the natural. If there is no one working offensively in a region, you'll see devastation happen in the natural and any defensive church constantly putting band-aides on a community. But it gets harder and harder when the multitudes shout... "That's nice that Jesus loves me... but why is this stuff happening if He 'loves us' so much?"
So how can we understand this 'invisible' war waged against us? Since the devil can't be everywhere at once he has to delegate. Look at history for a clue...Kings, Nobles, Princes...go on down the line. Look at our military for a clue...Generals, Captains, Sargents. It works the same way, but again...not the devil, nor his fallen army can be everywhere at once so if we can get the offensive hand in a region... in the natural instead of destruction breaking out, we begin to see revival and the glory of God open up.
So I was in a big influential city recently. For those of you that live in one what I'm about to speak of might start to make sense because of the experiences you've had. If you live in a small town with not much going on... well, let's think about this... ask yourself what makes sense. Where do you suppose you would focus your firepower at if you were in a war? Would it be a little town or would it be a big one where you could taint the water supply and poison all the people? Think of the media and the power to influence for good or power in poisoning. And in a big city that the world looks to... aren't the decisions that come from them one's that the world watches and emulate? Spiritually, you are not going to have the same dynamics in a small town as you will in a big city... spiritually, you are going to have more of everything... opposition, more higher heavy hitters, more targeted agendas on the enemy's front. Let's face it, it's really hard in those territories...

So often people go looking for the devil under every rock...but why not do this with God instead?
Everywhere and in and through EVERYthing...God is reaching out through His creation for fellowship with us. If you have a searching heart you will see Him, you will hear Him...all of your senses will be receptive to Him.
In the beatitudes Jesus says, "Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied." (Matthew 5:3-10)
It has been said that the beatitudes are a progression that build upon each other...so if you move down from this 4rth beatitude to the 6th...it says: "Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God. "
So, if you hunger and thirst for that relationship with God, that righteous communion.. and continue on... truly, you are what you eat...and you will grow to have a pure heart, and you will see Him. That's pretty exciting but don't think that means a purely literal translation...a picture of a strong white-haired man.
In the original Hebrew text, the version of God used, in the 6th beatitude, refers to 'the Creator', Elohim. So because God as 'Creator' is used it broadens how we will 'SEE' Him. Let me give an example: In all of hollywood...you might not know an actors name, but associate it w/ the 'creation' that they were part of.. the film, and then you know just who they are. You immediately get a picture of who they are and their whole performance in your head. It's the same with God and how He shows up...but are you only looking at the natural or do you have a spiritual leg to stand upon?
When God really became real to me I was in a desperate situation. I had no one...I completely suffered in silence...it was absolutely the loneliest time of my life. The thing was, that I was in that situation because it was my own fault, and I accepted that fact. Through it grew a reverence for God...part of it was that He provided a book on how to live (the scriptures), and here I was in this lot in life because I didn't listen to them....so what was next? I began to cling to Him. He was all I had....if I didn't listen before & things were a wreck....now I could look through the scriptures in a new way. I had no one else...and here in the scriptures it said that Jesus loves me unconditionally & that my offenses are completely wiped away. He was my instant best-friend...He was the only one that understood & stood by me...

Could you offer your first-born on an offer of sacrifice? What about something a little more 'down the earth', like go against the grain and suffer persecution from family and peers?
These are the days of 'blind Faith', where He's testing hearts in an unconventional manner. Tune into His voice...it's a matter of who's 'taken' and whose left...and I'm not talking about 'rapture' either!
part 2 of 2....You've gotten prophetic words of financial blessing & you're speaking it forth...your taking on the dominions placed before you --yet your wheels seems to be spinning. Where is the breakthrough you say? Where is the promise? There's a few reasons it's not manifesting...I'll break it down in this episode of hearing God...
#3. is, or are the vessels pure? this is the biggest hang-up to birthing a financial release. God needs solid vessels to pour into...they can't have any holes in them. and notice i said 'is or ARE the vessels pure?' you have a lot of self examination to do on your own part, but for some....you might be a vessel that He can pour into....but is what you would pour it out into full of holes? the good you would do w/ it--is it where He's going to want it to go? this absolutely includes your tithe...is your tithe going to be sown where God is?
it's that kind of alignment that needs to happen to bring our releases. until those vessels are built and His own can discern where He is...we get our needs met...we get polished w/ every hard thing.
G-d needs it to go where it's supposed to to achieve His purpose, not for our understanding...
so if you really think your vessel is pure (now be careful people!!!) then have you examined the fruits of what you want to sow into?
so you could be all ready, but it's not released because the alignment is off. if this is the case...you need to go to the prayer closet and intercede for the other 'vessel' or you need to ask God to align you or open your eyes to what He wants.
you have to remember our life unfolds in seasons and that some things can become comfortable...what was once in alignment with His plan may no longer be there. you have to always be on the edge of your chair for a fresh word from G-d, no matter how uncomfortable it is. it's uncomfortable because G-d always has to do a 'new thing' because the devil is always jumping in to pervert and twist things through religious spirits. again, seek the great comforter and His counsel.
#4. for righteousness sake. this might be rare, but sometimes G-d holds off like he did with Job. A word given shall come to pass, as it did with Job...just perhaps not right away.
"Heaven and earth shall pass away, but truly the words of G-d shall not pass away." ---so hold tight to that promise, examine yourself and counsel with G-d as you gain the anointing. When everything is aligned...G-d will pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive.

You've gotten prophetic words of financial blessing & you're speaking it forth...your taking on the dominions placed before you --yet your wheels seems to be spinning. Where is the breakthrough you say? Where is the promise? There's a few reasons it's not manifesting...I'll break it down in this episode of hearing God...
it's very frustrating to get a word on financial blessing and not see it breakthrough. and there are those of you out there that know He takes care of your daily bread but your hearts longing is that this big blessing comes in so it can go out to further the kingdom of God. i'm going to go through some of the things that God has shown me that might help you internalize what's blocking it up.
#1. was the word from God? if you got the word from God directly and can discern that it was indeed from Him then you can move on. but....if you got the word from outside of yourself....did you pray about it? ever hear such a thing as a smooth prophet? what is their 'track record'--good fruit produced? it's very important that anything spoken to you is then taken to God for confirmation.
#2. you have to take a dominion. oh come on...how often does money just fall down from heaven? it does on occasion, but God has equipped each and every one of us with desires in our hearts...brains to seek education...hands to plow with and spiritual authority to overcome.
the devil doesn't want you to do anything to advance the kingdom of God, so it is your job to manifest "having done all things therefore Stand!" out of educating yourself and getting the work done no matter what...realize that being effective for God puts a bullseye on your back...and not only on your back but everyone you come into contact with and everything you set your hands to. this is war and the devil wants to shut you down at any cost. you might be happy to educate and work hard but if your blockage always hits outside of your own control it's because you have to take authority. what does this mean? a Lot of prayer. you must prayer shield everything & everyone you come into contact with along with prophesying those words of financial blessing despite whatever it looks like in the natural. if you haven't been doing this...you're going to see your life radically change as this is what grows the anointing and gets you in closer union with G-d.
but you have done this you say....well...
#3. is, or are the vessels pure? this is the biggest hang-up to birthing a financial release. God needs solid vessels to pour into...they can't have any holes in them. and notice i said 'is or ARE the vessels pure?' you have a lot of self examination to do on your own part, but for some....you might be a vessel that He can pour into....but is what you would pour it out into full of holes? the good you would do w/ it--is it where He's going to want it to go? this absolutely includes your tithe...is your tithe going to be sown where God is?...

In this fun episode...
How to pull off Discrete Prayer Walking if using salt is part of it, & what to do with all those non-spirit filled Teachings from 'Man' you might have laying around on cd's and dvd's. You need to get rid of them, but you want to be resourceful about it...
A good bit of information regarding the importance of Salt can be found here:
Backslidden & can't get out?
Why the desert.... why not just dessert? What do you do when it's dry out there? Let's get our shovels out in this episode of hearingGod.
The dry times-- the TRY times. Let's face it, it's hard, but I've begun to realize it's an awesome time because it causes us to press deeper into Him.
When you first receive Jesus as Lord in your life, it's such a beautiful time... we're like kids in candy stores. He shows Himself so dramatically, in all our senses we can breathe in His presence.... and the JOY, the peace.... need I go on? It's GREAT!
But let me ask you, "What happened to Jesus when He went out into the desert?" He was tempted, right?
I'm not gonna read the scripture for that.... I'm going to read what Papa wants to share with you.... it's The Parable of The Sower...
(Matt 13:3-23; Mk 4:2-20; Luke 8:4-15)
"When a great multitude came together, and people from every city were coming to him, he spoke by a parable. "The farmer went out to sow his seed. As he sowed,
some fell along the road, and it was trampled under foot,
and the birds of the sky devoured it.
other seed fell on the rock, and as soon as it grew, it withered away,
because it had no moisture.
Other fell amid the thorns, and the thorns grew with it, and choked it.
Other fell into the good ground, and grew, and brought forth fruit one hundred times."
As he said these things, he called out, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear!"
Then his disciples asked him, "What does this parable mean?"
He said, "To you it is given to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of God, but to the rest in parables; that seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.
Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
Those along the road are those who hear, then the devil comes,
and takes away the word from their heart, that they may not believe and be saved.
Those on the rock are they who, when they hear, receive the word with joy
but these have no root, who believe for a while, then fall away in time of temptation.
That which fell among the thorns, these are those who have heard,
and as they go on their way they are choked with cares, riches,
and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity.
That in the good ground, these are such as in an honest and good heart,
having heard the word, hold it tightly, and bring forth fruit with patience. "
Okay... now back to Jesus in the desert.... how did He get out? The Word of God was deeply rooted in Him, which caused Him to believe it as truth and reject the lies hurled at him. When we look at the sower parable.... who survived? The seed planted in the good ground. It wasn't laying on the ground's surface to be gobbled up, it wasn't too shallow, it wasn't planted on something that couldn't sustain it for the long term.
A lot of people that backslide just want to toss in the towel. The devil is right there to hurl choking accusations etc., but I say "GET OUT THE SHOVEL"....dig deep into the well of salvation!
In the bible, over and over... we know the way is hard, it's narrow... it's rough. So any of you out there that are backslidden that are out there searching-- looking for the way back... Blessed are you! When you taste a bit of God, then you fall... you are left with that hunger & as you look everywhere it isn't fulfilled anywhere again but in our Savior, Jesus!...

What does this Mouse trap have to do with anything?? It's all about Ecclesiastes!
The book of Ecclesiastes sure can sound like a 'drag', if you only piece-meal through it, but if you embrace it and slowly absorb it in you can begin to understand the big picture. God is sovereign, He created us & we have a purpose...if we don't see the big picture, our lives get swallowed up in meaninglessness, and we don't get to enjoy it.
When looking at the mouse film, you find yourself cringing with anxiety as the mouse dances all around the trap; even eats the peanut butter right off of it. In the end the mouse got spooked and thought it was a good place to land--- ironic isn't it? I like to look at this flick for it's parable message-- although it's not pretty and animal rights people may 'boo'...I don't care, Auschwitz wasn't pretty either. Death is not pretty, get over it...dark days are ahead.
12 Moreover, no man knows when his hour will come: As fish are caught in a cruel net, or birds are taken in a snare, so men are trapped by evil times that fall unexpectedly upon them.
For some, you can identify with the mouse trap as representing 'Sin'. The way of sin is wide, alluring... offering a free taste and the consequences unto death. And true, we find and have found ourselves dancing all around it, but in the end it can swallow us up unless we repent and do a 180º. But I like to look at it from an Ecclesiastes viewpoint.... as death.
We are placed inside of time, where we have a beginning and we move towards a physical ending. We don't know when it's gonna happen, but it's there, it's waiting. If we consume ourselves with worry over it, it's closer to us than we can know.
There are so many things out there that I see Christians out there getting wrapped up in that have a root of fear and self-preservation instead of Praising God, casting our cares upon Him and enjoying this wonderful thing called 'life'.
Conspiracy theories, end-time stock piling & bomb shelters and what-have-you. You know I don't have a problem with people doing things that GOD tells them, but can you discern the spirit behind the bulk of this mentality? Can you see what it does? You end up digging deeper and deeper into heady knowledge and reliance on 'being prepared', or blabbing about New World Orders and less about conforming into the image of Christ and moving in greater works. Is Jesus our all-consuming fire? If our eyes are on Him and our ears are listening to Him....it's simple, we don't waste time and we get to enjoy life...

Freedom 1 shares a prophetic dream she had and opens up it's interpretation into a teaching. What staves the 'Wall of Judgment'.... and how is this force 'mutinized'?
I had an amazing dream the other night where God showed me the condition of the 'true' church of God. Join me for a little boat ride, on this episode of hearingGod...
I was brought to the edge of the waters. On the shore were cliff side buildings and there were many people on the edge looking out into the see which was a huge tsunami wall that would ebb and flow moving forward & back. Though it was terrifying people were fixated to it's motion.
At one point I was on the shore with a fellow prophet that grabbed my arm as a blast from the wall came in & we ran inward towards the shore. I recognized this to have been 9/11.
Then I was out on the waters. There were no big boats...only small boats with few people onboard. As the wall would ebb and flow, I could see in each motion a boat would flip & there would be less each time. Then I was specifically shown a family in a boat speeding to the shore. There was a woman & her two children throwing her lethargic husband, that was in a fetal position, out of the boat onto the shore... she did so forcefully and I could hear her say "You can't handle this"...and then she and her kids rode back out to the wall.
This wall of water is Judgement. Everyone can see it's inevitability and is fixated on 'the watch over it.
On the waters are the small covenant groups that stave the wall, but as adversity (the ebb & flow of the wall) as sheets wash down the wall, some boats are able to handle it while others capsize. There are not new boats to take their place, but instead the group is less and less.
The family scene is a shocking parable...in that they could come off the wall...remove the dead weight and return. It's uncomfortable that the man is forcibly kicked out and that he is an important part of the family group, but I believe this is an important message for us...because in this hour we have to recognize where we belong. I believe the shoreline and the many people there represent intercessors. It's not that the husband is not important, but he couldn't handle 'the warfare'. Imagine the constant terror of riding a vertical wall & watching boats capsize with none to replace them... do you suppose you might go into a lethargic shock as this husband did? People that don't connect the warfare act out of fear. They curl up into that fetal position. So recognize, that if you are not helping the boat....you are sinking it. And if you honestly can't handle the terror then you need to be on the shore interceding for the ones that can. And additionally consider that you might've appointed yourself something God didn't create you to be.
How do we know how to help the little boats?...Hey, get a clue, I said LITTLE BOATS. If you think some big notable ministry is the way....it's not....they are not even on the water. What you need to do is sooooo simple but we are so foolish we miss it..... ASK GOD to show you what to align with. Ask Him every single day! If you're not asking.... if you're not having your own personal relationship with HIM to know.... if you'd rather be fed some filter of someone else's relationship with Him....then He doesn't know you....and you don't know your purpose.
The people in the boat are just as important as the intercessors on the shore. When everybody is doing their God-ordained job...everything 'works'.
Could we then make an observation about the boats that flipped during the ebb and flow of the wall?...

"Are we gracious enough? Are we thankful enough for what God gives us each day to get by to the next?" When we feel like we're in a press or being crushed it's easy to lose sight of the full picture. Sometimes we need the full picture, but other times we need to downsize to what's right before us, with our cups ready to catch our daily drip...that living water we need to get us through that day.
When the enemy comes in like a flood, do you get lost in it or do you dictate your day? Join Stingray as he shares and exhorts you to take authority of every situation and thought and overcome by the Word and the truth of who you are in Jesus.
Stingray shares some of his valuable growth experience in his faith-walk on this episode of hearingGod.
Believing and walking in faith is no walk in the park... learning to take thoughts captive and grow in relationship with Jesus is the key.
What is 'reading mail' about anyways? Join Freedom 1 in this episode of hearingGod as she talks about the two ways people acquire 'hidden knowledge' and exhorts you to move through the narrow gate in attaining it.
Today I want to talk about this interesting phenomena I like to call 'reading mail'. It's basically when you get 'tuned in' to God's frequency and He uses you as a vessel of His presence here on earth. Keep in mind that God, being outside the confines of time, already knows the outcome of all things and that's plainly spelled out in the scriptures that keep unfolding with His ultimate script. [Change in understanding 2009: I no longer believe that the enemy is outside of time as per the next statement... but watches what we do/say to SUPPOSE an outcome, as well as operation through familiar spirits.] But who else is outside of time... Yep, all the fallen angels. That's why it's so important to test EvErYtHiNg!
I've said it before, I'll say it again...Yes, everyone on the earth has this power to be a vessel, but because He, creator God, gives us 'choice' He allows people access to it either through the door of Jesus or they can go around & find some other way in to access this power...but there's a catch...
In John chapter 10, which speaks of the Shepherd and His flock, it says:
1"I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber."
So...you can guess the outcome. Without going in through the door...you'll find something to the effect of 'I never knew you...' ouch!
So let's look at the options here...
Vessel 'A', seeking creator God, pulls us closer to Him, whom loves us and gives us that freedom to freely love Him back. Vessel 'B', using witchcraft or plainly said...getting your information from a fallen angel...still might help people but read John 10 again. Then realize that it's not about you....you're only a pawn to the devil...

The demonic can manifest in visible, physical ways by either gained access or by permission from God. Join Freedom 1 as she shares some of her experiences with DeMoNiC manifestation...
In the bible it says you'll know a believer by what they produce in the natural...and warnings to watch for the fruit produced by a person as it's either good or bad...(check out Matthew chapter 7). But I want to take this beyond looking at the hearts of mankind & include a gamut of many things I've experienced and learned so maybe you can empathize, but maybe things like these have happened to you but you never connected the dots. As you begin to be more aware of how the demonic manifests....it just helps you to better target the root. We have to get into a flint-faced mode where any flashy manifestation of the enemy isn't going to rattle our cages or put us into fear.
So, let's start off on something really tangible. I want to use this first because this is something you'll really feel. See this here...this is something I'd like you to get in the habit of doing every so often. This will help you on your purification process with multiplied results. This is a list I made of everyone that has ever hurt me or people I've been mad at. See many things are buried within us & are access points for the enemy and lest we confront them...we don't know they are there. Approach this exercise humbly with an ernest desire of 'Forgiveness'. As you write stuff down you'll note that some entries...you know you've forgiven or reconciled, there will be nothing felt or peace...but others you will start popping like popcorn inside. What you are feeling is a demonic foothold beginning to war from being exposed. Remember that Jesus says in John 20, "If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld. Just as the Jews continually offered sacrifice for their sins, we must continually cleanse and ask forgiveness through Jesus in every area of our lives so the enemy cannot gain a foothold within us. So do this every so often... and write every little thing down whether you feel it's completely healed or not because it's also comforting to see how far you've come! Then spend time with God talking with Him about it....then throw the list away and then schedule another session with your Jesus therapist and do this again every so often.
Okay, moving on...when my husband and I first began to get noticed as threatening on the enemies radar, we had some reaaaaally bizarre manifestations. The first one was that we found our marriage certificate out in our mailbox. Mind you, this thing is buried in a wedding book & was in an envelope that over time had sealed itself. So most people would think along the lines of 'Oh no, we had a home invasion', in the natural, and I'd say...try spiritual, and you hit the nail on the head! So, though it seemed insane to believe...it was more insane to believe a human would do this. See the devil can only do things by having earned access OR by permission from God. This was something that God allowed because although the devil wanted to rattle our cages...God wanted us to see how the enemy desired to sift us...and it was plain to see that his aim and target was our marriage...

A teaching for 'the remnant'...you know who you are!
Everyone on the planet has manifestation power whether they go through the door of Jesus or try and come in some other way.
In this episode you'll learn the devil's favorite playing card for turning an anointed child of God into an end-time weapon.
I'll also help you identify 'religious spirits' and help you get into the mindset of taking EVERY thought into captivity...if this program agitates...you won't want to miss the ending!
It used to bug me when, some nights, I'd go to sleep and the fan blades would be in a perfect pentagram symbol over my head. I'd stand up on the bed and give the blades a quarter-turn and then blame the devil for doing that on purpose. After a while of doing this (and despising the chore itself) God began to teach me how silly this routine was, how powerful He is...and how that same power we have access to....that manifestation power granted to us through Jesus can be be maligned by the enemy to work against us.
See, there's no power in that fan-shape configuration....I believed a lie the enemy was whispering & allowed fear to come in...I granted him that access to have power when I agreed with the fear he was dishing out. And in agreeing with anything the devil dishes out...you might as well be handing him the keys to the convertible.
A few years ago I found out that church steeples were actually birthed from pagan buildings that converted to churches. The steeple itself actually representing a phallic symbol! Does that make all churches bearing that evil? Again, silliness!
And recently, over the internet, I see people arguing what the 'proper' name for God is....and that if you don't say it 'right' your 'god' is the devil. How nuts is that?
What about children celebrating the resurrection of Jesus and calling it 'Easter'? Why condemn? Does it really matter if it's called the feast of blah, blah...isn't what God does is look upon the heart of man? I just find it amazing how this legalistic spirit invades the body of Christ. That's what it is folks....it's a 'spirit', and let me tell you....it's not of Him.
I'm not worried about anyone in the enemies camp, or people that just don't know Jesus, yet this legalistic spirit will damn you if you associate with such people, or even believers not of the same flock as yourself. It's a spirit, that if you'd be wise and test....is one that robs your liberties and ices the heart afire for God--it's a freedom-robbing chant...that mantra of control, of bondage, of condemnation. It is the same choking spirit that ultimately murdered Jesus...yet people today do not take those scriptures of old and apply their precepts into life today...
