An Excellent Identity

Excellent:

1) Very good of its kind: eminently good

2) extraordinary; superior

3) Used to indicate approval 

God has been opening so things up to me about identity and in a world where identity is disappearing there is a greater need to know who we are. So often we think excellence is a gained by how good we can be or make something look. A process of achieving. But excellence isn't something we make happen, excellence is something we are!

Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

You see God created us in Christ Jesus unto good works. We don't become good or excellent  by our good works but rather our good works are a product of the good work He created. Therefore our identity is excellent. We didn't become excellent through our works, we are excellent and once we are aware of that then naturally excellence flows from that place of identity. 

The first definition says: Very good of its kind: eminently good.

    -You are already excellent! Genesis 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

The second definition said: extraordinary; superior

    -God gave us dominion at creation! Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. See also Deut 14:2 and 1 Peter 2:9

The third definition said: Used to indicate approval

    -You are already approved! Eph 1;6 says we are accepted in the beloved. Psalm 149:4 says the Lord takes pleasure in His people. 

Appearance by itself is not excellence. Excellence is a product of what is already working on the inside. Excellence is a by product of these three things:

LOVE- we can't be excellent  if we're no loving eachother

HONOR- we can't be excellent if we're not honoring the people God placed around us and the gift he placed in them.

HUMILITY- we can't be excellent when "what I want and what I get" becomes more important than who I'm with. People be more important than things and "self" has to get put on the proverbial shelf. 

Micah 6:8 sums these three up:

He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

A synonym for just is honorable. 

God requires this of us and to walk in the fullness of our identity we must acknowledge that He already created us unto these good works through Christ Jesus. 

Eph 3:16-19 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

Filled with the fullness

Fully Identifying

PDA (Public Display of Affection)

 

I hear the Spirit say, some of us need to work on our PDA.
Our public display of affection towards Him. Many of us have a private romance with Him but in public we put up walls and barriers because of fear or self-consciousness about what others might think. But God wants us to fully experience who He is in every way. Just as we have physical senses we have spiritual senses as well and God wants us to experience Him in each one of those sense. Not to just hear Him but to touch, taste, see, and smell Him. And He wants us to experience Him not just in our prayer closets but also in our public display of worship and affection toward Him. To be completely surrendered, to be fully open, to be so engulfed and enamored by His presence that there isn't room for self consciousness, no room for self gazing just Son gazing. Because it is when we give our attention fully to Him we can experience the fullness of what's available to us. Not just at home in those private moments but in every moment, in every place, to be fully aware of His presence. To live every day fully experienceing Him! 

Psalm 34
Song chap 1-2

Reformation Transformation

Too many people are trying to have a transformation without first having a Reformation. Too many people trying to fix internal problems with external solutions. You see a lot of buildings remolded, schools rebuilt, a lot of decor changes but not inner changes. People longing for transformation, schools longing for transformation, businesses longing for change, cities desperate to transform but they have no one to reform. Transformation is the product of internal Reformation. There needs to be someone to do the inside job. You need a man on the inside and I'm the man for the job! I Am the source and I have the solution, some want the source and few want the solution. You want transformation? Let Me reform you! I will reform your cities, I will reform your schools, I will reform your government and I will reform you! No job is too big, no job is too small, send them to me, I can fix them all!

Matthew 23:26

 

Isn't She Lovely

I hear in the Spirit God is singing this song over his daughter's right now:

" Isn't she lovely! Isn't she wonderfully made! Isn't she priceless, matchless, beyond compare! Isn't she MINE!"

Its not a question He's asking, its a statement He's making!

Isn't she lovely, wonderful, isn't she matchless and beautiful beyond compare? Isn't she priceless, isn't she glorious, isn't she mine! Daughter you are mine, I have called you for such a time as this! Those who behold you will behold my heart, for you are the lover of my heart. In the secret place I meet with you, in the quiet moments when no one sees, there, there is were I reveal to you the secrects of my heart. Come get into the rythm of my heart, come and dance along the streams of its ebb and flow. Come dine with me in the secret place so that I can fill you with heavenly bread. Some desire meat and some desire gold but you have been given of the hidden manna. I alone can satisfy, I satisfy every longing, every need, every hearts cry, I satisfy! With wells of living water and streams of joy I will fill you to briming over. You bringing glad tidings wherever you go and all those who follow you will know she is a daughter of the King. You are beautiful, your heart is glorious you have made my heart glad of you. There is none comparable to you my daughter! I will dress you in the clothing of heaven, you are glorious, you are stunning, you are shinning! I have called you by name, for such a time and you are MINE! You are belonging, you are in the process, MINE and BELONG!

Psalm 45:9 Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.10Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father's house;11So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him.12And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall intreat thy favour.13The king's daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.14She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.15With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king's palace.16Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.17I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.

Mobilization

Its time to mobilize the troops. Get ready the armies and send them out. Cause them to be sent and seen. I have ordained a thing, my mobilizers are on the scene. It's time to get mobile and this will go global! Send them out into the hyways and byways and bring them in from the streets. Go and get them for my house is empty and my feast lays waste. For now will the great march for souls begin and the greatest harvest is at hand. Reach out and bring them in. Bring in the corn, thresh the weat, press the grapes, harvest the figs. There is much to do, mobilize the troops! Don't let the grapes waste on the vine or the fruit drop to the ground. Don't let the corn wither and the weat wane. Get active, get proactive. Don't be prideful and say "its not for me, my season is not yet." For I say, your season is both come and it is now! It is not time to be lofty or lazy. It is not time to go back to bed. For those who will have plenty will bring the harvest in due season. Harvest, harvest, harvest has begun. Awake thou who sleeps, wipe the slumber from your eyes, look to the fields for there is much work to be done.

Proverbs 6:4 Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids.6:5 Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.6:6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:6:7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,6:8 Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.6:9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?6:10 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:6:11 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man. 

This is not a harvest without reward, this is the harvest that has been worth waiting for. Many have sowed their lives for such a harvest and now the batton his passed on to you to bring it in! Get mobile and watch what I will do as I move upon you, as I move among you for I have come to see my harvest brought in. Those who are faithful will reap a great reward. 

Joel 2

There is a Joel 2 anointing upon the people, great is the army that carries out His word! We will run to and fro in the city and on the walls, we will take the cities and the land for the Lord for He hath ordained a thing

Accelerate and Elevate

I am accelerating and elevating you, higher hights, deeper depths. So much more to see, so much more to do. Strategic advancement.
Now is the time for the great race to begin and my whole body must join in. There is but one race and one goal, one prize for the win! This race is for souls, for others to join in, for others to join for the great win. I am dispatching my pace setters into the race, they will create and set a pace for those around them to have grace. They will come along side those who are weak, those who are weary, to strengthen, encourage, and protect. Don't despise my pace setters. Don't allow fears or insecurities to keep you isolated. Don't allow pride to separate you for you were not made to run this race alone. I have a plan for unity and now is the time for the church to unify, for the body to work together in unity for one final goal. The pace setters are dispatched for grace. They have the grace to keep you in the race. Link up! There is a divine linking in the Spirit, it is time to link up! Two are better than one, they will strength you and lead you through. They will train you and ordain you. I have chosen them to prepare you for the race ahead.  Pace setters, grace setters, don't lose sight of the prize but press on ahead. Keep your eyes on the race and focus on your pace. I have given you a divine grace for your race and it will set your pace. Run your race at your grace pace. Don't lose sight of why you're in the race and don't lose sight of your place. Your place sets pace for others to have grace for their race. Many may not finish if you lose your pace. Consistency is key. Don't worry about those around you just keep your eye on the race and focus at your pace. We're in it to win it and together we win!

1 Corinthians 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

Ecclesiastes 4:9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.4:10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

Philippians 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.3:15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.3:16 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

1 Tim 4:6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.4:7 But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.4:8 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.4:9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.4:10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.4:11 These things command and teach.

Joshua 1:3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.

Mandate to Pray, Repay in May

Mayday: A distress signal using the words "Mayday"

May Day: May 1st, celebrated in many countries as a traditional springtime festival or as an international day honoring workers.

I hear in the Spirit, "May day, May day, May day!" So many have been crying, "Mayday, Mayday!" And God is answering May Day! Its time for May Day, God is celebrating you this day. Through all the trials and the troubles and the fog. Through the loss and discouragement. He's taking you from troubles to Triumph, from victim to Victor, from sad to Glad! When you cry in distress, "Mayday!" God is responding with a new song, "May Day. I'm making a new way in May, its time for triumph My way, cause I'm making a brand new day in May!" What looked like trouble will only bring you double, a double mantle for all your trouble. A double promise for all you've endured. Double double for all your trouble, you say trouble but I say double! You say "Mayday" but I say "May Day!" New day, new way, time for a double repay! There's more in May, theres a mandate to pray. As you pray, I will repay. For all you've lost I'm rewarding a double recompence, for all your struggles a double portion, for all your labor a double payday! May day, double repay! Restitution, reward, recompence, return, restore, bring back more, more than you had before! There's so much more, more in store, more in store in May. More when you do things My way, more when you answer the mandate to pray. Don't talk about your problems, don't stew about your problems, don't think about your problems, just send them My way! In return I will repay! I am answering the distress calls, "mayday" as you send them My way. I am turning distress into My rest. Distress to My rest, mayday to repay! It's time to get on your knees and pray, here comes the great Repay in May!

Woke up singing this song; "It is a new day, it is a new day, its is a new day of the Lord. A day of joy and gladness, of victories to be won, a day of walking arm and arm with Jesus Christ Gods Son!"

Isaiah 61

Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

 

A Building Made Without Hands

I am building for me a new building a building made without hands. A building who's foundations are tried and true. I will do away with the former house and the later house will stand. Out with the old, in with the new, this is my divine redo. My final say over this land. Now is the time for my great and mighty battle plan, now I will meet the enemy with a force he cannot withstand. These are the greatest days upon earth as my Spirit pours out upon all flesh. I am speaking, do you hear my voice? Let those who have ears to hear, hear and those who have eyes to see, see. For I am moving in unpresedented ways upon the earth. My hand is not slack and my ear is not dull, nor are my eyes dark to the ways of man. For I have seen and heard all that is done upon the face of the earth and bloodshed and voilence is grevious in my site. I would that you would hear me and turn for I am coming with a great return. I will return unto you all debts owed. The Master returns to his hired, be found as faithul stewards. Those who are found asleep will not be worthy of my reward. Kept you candles lit and your wicks trimmed for the eyes of the Lord are searching for the righteous upon the earth to bring them a great recompense of reward! 

1 Corinth 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

2 Corinth 5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

Rev 3:22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Matthew 25:7 Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps.

Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.

Mark 13: 33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. 35Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

2 Chron 16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

Tragedy to Triumph 3/17/18

I am taking you from tragedy to triumph. Your tragedy will not keep you stuck, it will cause you to try up, to fly up! I am giving you strategy for your tragedy. Tragedy made a play but I have the final say, this time things are going my way. What was meant to take you down will only bring you up. You are rising and soon you'll be flying. Flying over every obstacle, above every circumstance cause you're butterflying! Crying to flying, my loved ones are butterflying!

Psalm 18

Risen & Reason 3/17/18

April is the month of risen and reason. Risen because this marks the beginning of dead things rising to life. And reason because I have a strategic reason for this season. I have come to gife life and to give a reason to live. I will move upon dead things and cause them to live. I am moving full speed ahead, come and catch my wind. Step into the slipstream of my grace and let my winds propel you into your divine destiny. There is a reason for every season and My reason is you! I have come to meet with you, to sup with you. Will you come sit at My table and feast of my word? I have so much to show you and so much to teach you now. You're ready now and the table is set. Come, come and see the feast I have set for you! Come, come and see what I have prepared! There is so much to do and I am calling you, come, come, come! Come and see what I have done, come and see what I will do! I have such great and wonderful plans for you! Don't be afraid, don't hesitate, don't allow the enemy to steal your destiny from you. He whispers lies and falsehoods but I will show you the truth and I will bring you to the reason for your season and to the reason for your being. Great and mighty plans I have in store. There is so much in store and I am giving you the keys. You have full access now, access to Kingdom accounts, access to Kingdom mindsets. Choose, for what you believe you can receive! I'm opening the warehouse of worship and I am pouring out praises and songs like never before. Your ability to praise me will bring peace to your storms. I am opening the gates of revelation like never before and I am inviting people to experience my Kingdom. Kingdom tours are on the way. I am granting access to my Kingdom for this great and mighty season. I am teaching Kingdom strategy to those who will listen. There is so much I am releasing in this season, there is so much more to see, so much more to do, so much more to experience, than ever before. Keep seeking and you will find there is so, so much more in store! 

John 10:10
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

John21:12-14
12Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. 13Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise. 14This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.

John 8:44
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Genesis 41: 41And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt. 42And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck; 43And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt. 44And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt

Hidden Hearts- Exposure & Disclosure

This is the month of exposure and disclosure. I am exposing hearts during this season. I am exposing hidden works of darkness and things done in secret. I am exposing the hidden intents of the hearts. There are many with self love and hatred towards their brother. Self exaltation and pride abound. But where have those gone that will yeild and where have those gone that will go to a low place and seek my heart, my face? Have they all gone astray? I will prove them now and I will expose the intentions of every mans heart to see where he stands before me. For there are many that will draw nigh unto me with their lips but their hearts are far from me. For they would none of my ways and the Love of the Father is not in them. Because they have chosen to love self then I will bring them low and those that have loved me will find me. Those that have sought me with their whole hearts will I show my glory. Be careful when you think you stand least you fall. 

Jeremiah 17:10
I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

Isaiah 53:6
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Matthew 15:8
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

1 John 2:15
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

Jeremiah 29:13
And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

 

Hot then Cold

 

"You're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up then you're down"

1/25/18 I heard these lyrics today while I was doing housework and I thought, "that was kind of out of no where." Then I heard the Holy Spirit say, " this is what the church is like today. There are not many that will travail before me in prayer and fasting. They will press in for some time and then they back off again. There is no consistency. Just when we make progress then the prayers drop off and the fastings stop. The progress made becomes compromised as the enemy presses harder. It is time for change, no more baby steps, put down the bottles and pick up the swords. I will move in with a mighty wave and I will begin to sweep this nation out. There is too much dust lying about. It's time to clean house. I can abide the clutter and filth no longer but I will not utterly destroy. Somethings will be lost to the fire and some to the wind but I will build it back up again. This is My time, My day, My way. I will do a new, new, a divine redo. The time has come for the enemies plans to be undone. For too long he has had his way, he has had his day but I will have the final say! I am taking back what is mine now, it was mine from the beginning and it will be for all time. I will do this my way. I will say to my churches, the time has come to put down the bottles and pick up the swords for I will move in a new way and I need your cooperation like never before. If my people are not willing then I will go out and find whosever will for I will accomplish my plan and I will not be hindered. This is an invitation to the church to partner with me as I work wonders upon the face of the earth. You will need to be stewards of my presence and your giftings, for the enemy will be on high alert to find those who will find themselves outside of the fold. The enemy will move in with a counter force. You must know my heart, you must know my word so you wont be devoured by the enemies schemes and lies. There is hope and this is a new day with a new way. Come learn of me and I will give you overcoming strategy. Stay in me and you'll never go hungry. Come all who will come, come and see my great battle plan! This is of Me this is not of man!"

Revelations 3:16  So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

1 Corinth 3:1-3 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.2I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. 3For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?

John 4:32-43 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of. 33Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?34Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. 

Luke 14;16-24 Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: 17And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. 18And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. 19And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. 20And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. 21So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. 22And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. 23And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. 24For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
