God Will Finish the Work He Started in Us

It was God who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light. Before we were formed in our mother’s womb, He knew us. Before we were even born, Jesus went to the cross to redeem and save us. Surely, God will finish the work He started in us.

being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. – Phillipians 1:6 NKJV

phillipians 1.6

Sometimes it’s hard to see the forest through the trees. So many of us are going through firey trials. Let’s take a step back, and breathe. Surely God will not leave us in this place. He promised never to leave us or forsake us. He promised to go before us and light the way.  Let’s stop looking around at all these awful circumstances and look up for our Salvation draws nigh!

God is our Master Builder. He is the Alpha and the Omega,  the beginning and the end. Whether we live or we die, we belong to the Lord. God will finish the work He started in us.  Rest, relax in Jesus, He is our beginning and our end – not us, not our circumstances, not this life on Earth. Jesus is the end!

“And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.” – Revelation 22:12-13 NKJV

God knows, God sees, and He WILL deliver us!

And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly kingdom. To Him be glory forever and ever. Amen! – 2 Timothy 4:18 NKJV

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me;
You will stretch out Your hand
Against the wrath of my enemies,
And Your right hand will save me.
The Lord will perfect that which concerns me;
Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands. – Psalm 138:7-8 NKJV

“And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. It had a great, high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south and three on the west. The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. The angel measured the wall using human measurement, and it was 144 cubits thick. The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, the fifth onyx, the sixth ruby, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth turquoise, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass. I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.” – Revelation 21:10-14,17-23 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation21:10-14,17-23&version=NKJV

Glory is coming

The glory is coming!
Do you feel it?

I saw a glimpse of it the other night on a sunset. One of those sunsets that take your breath away! I was driving 65 mph on I-90 and I still had to snap a picture. I wanted to stop and just crawl into that sky. God must have heard that prayer.

In prayer this morning I went for a walk with Jesus. Yes, in the spirit. It’s not like He knocks on my door like the pizza man. He met me in my prayers. And we went for a walk to the second heaven.

I asked Him, how did all those Apostle guys know what Heaven looked like? I mean they weren’t dead yet, they hadn’t been there physically yet. Jesus said they went for a walk with Him and thats how they knew. I read all about it this morning in Revelation 21.

And nobody had to go to a building for church cuz God was the Temple and He just walked with us everywhere. Jesus was the Lamp and His glory just light up the whole city. No sun, no moon, no need for electricity!  He is our God and we are His people.  Wow, cool trip. Thanks Lord.  I should stop and crawl into the sky more often!

 

Revelation 21 The Message (MSG)

Everything New
21 I saw Heaven and earth new-created. Gone the first Heaven, gone the first earth, gone the sea.

2 I saw Holy Jerusalem, new-created, descending resplendent out of Heaven, as ready for God as a bride for her husband.

3-5 I heard a voice thunder from the Throne: “Look! Look! God has moved into the neighborhood, making his home with men and women! They’re his people, he’s their God. He’ll wipe every tear from their eyes. Death is gone for good—tears gone, crying gone, pain gone—all the first order of things gone.” The Enthroned continued, “Look! I’m making everything new. Write it all down—each word dependable and accurate.”

6-8 Then he said, “It’s happened. I’m A to Z. I’m the Beginning, I’m the Conclusion. From Water-of-Life Well I give freely to the thirsty. Conquerors inherit all this. I’ll be God to them, they’ll be sons and daughters to me. But for the rest—the feckless and faithless, degenerates and murderers, sex peddlers and sorcerers, idolaters and all liars—for them it’s Lake Fire and Brimstone. Second death!”

The City of Light
9-12 One of the Seven Angels who had carried the bowls filled with the seven final disasters spoke to me: “Come here. I’ll show you the Bride, the Wife of the Lamb.” He took me away in the Spirit to an enormous, high mountain and showed me Holy Jerusalem descending out of Heaven from God, resplendent in the bright glory of God.

12-14 The City shimmered like a precious gem, light-filled, pulsing light. She had a wall majestic and high with twelve gates. At each gate stood an Angel, and on the gates were inscribed the names of the Twelve Tribes of the sons of Israel: three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, three gates on the west. The wall was set on twelve foundations, the names of the Twelve Apostles of the Lamb inscribed on them.

15-21 The Angel speaking with me had a gold measuring stick to measure the City, its gates, and its wall. The City was laid out in a perfect square. He measured the City with the measuring stick: twelve thousand stadia, its length, width, and height all equal. Using the standard measure, the Angel measured the thickness of its wall: 144 cubits. The wall was jasper, the color of Glory, and the City was pure gold, translucent as glass. The foundations of the City walls were garnished with every precious gem imaginable: the first foundation jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate a single pearl.

21-27 The main street of the City was pure gold, translucent as glass. But there was no sign of a Temple, for the Lord God—the Sovereign-Strong—and the Lamb are the Temple. The City doesn’t need sun or moon for light. God’s Glory is its light, the Lamb its lamp! The nations will walk in its light and earth’s kings bring in their splendor. Its gates will never be shut by day, and there won’t be any night. They’ll bring the glory and honor of the nations into the City. Nothing dirty or defiled will get into the City, and no one who defiles or deceives. Only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will get in.

Black Horse and Black Panther Vision

Prophetic Dream and Vision

 

I awoke last night about 2:20 am. Came downstairs, sat on couch and started to pray. God gave me a vision. I saw a black horse and a black panther with red eyes looking right at me. It was so clear, only lasted a few minutes, but I can still see it in my mind.  I asked God what it meant:

From the Bible:

Revelation 6: 5-6 AMPfour horses

 When He broke open the third seal, I heard the third living creature call out, Come and look! And I saw, and behold, a black horse, and in his hand the rider had a pair of scales (a balance).

And I heard what seemed to be a voice from the midst of the four living creatures, saying, A quart of wheat for a denarius [a whole day’s wages], and three quarts of barley for a denarius; but do not harm the oil and the wine!

From the book 10,000 Dreams Interpreted: A Dictionary of Dreams by Gustavus, Hindman, and Miller (I like this one because it’s Christian based)

PANTHER
“To see a panther and experience fright, denotes that contacts in love or business may be canceled unexpectedly, owing to adverse influences working against your honor. But by killing or overpowering it, you will experience joy and be successful in you undertakings. Your surroundings will take on fair prospects.
If one menaces you by its presence, you will have disappointments in business. Other people will likely recede from their promises to you.
If you hear the voice of a panther, and experience terror or fright, you will have unfavorable news. coming in the way of reducing profit or gain, and you may have social discord; no fright forebodes less evil.
A panther, like the cat, seen in a dream, portends evil to the dreamer, unless he kills it.”

HORSE

“If you dream of seeing or riding a white horse, the indications are favorable for prosperity and pleasurable commingling with congenial friends and fair women. If the white horse is soiled and lean, your confidence will be betrayed by a jealous friend or a woman.
If the horse is black, you will be successful in your fortune, but you will practice deception, and will be guilty of assignations. To a woman, this dream denotes that her husband is unfaithful.
To dream of dark horses, signifies prosperous conditions, but a large amount of discontent. Fleeting pleasures usually follow this dream.

 

And then from PRAYERS THAT ROUT DEMONS by John Eckhardt:

I rebuke the wild cats — leopards, lions, jaguars, which represent higher occult powers–that would attack my life, city, or nation in the name of Jesus.

 

And in another article I read from Prophetic Dreamers says the Black Panther represents a High Degree of Witchcraft or Occult. Perhaps the Lord is going to put this in the scales and make a judgement for those who practice this lifestyle. Lord, lead them all to You in Jesus Name. We all want someone to worship and they have been lied to. The Devil has come to kill, steal, and destroy. But you Lord have come to give life and life more abundantly. Show them the truth Lord. Give them all a Saul to Paul experience Lord, in Jesus Name!

Very interesting this comes on Election Day. Thank you Lord for Revelation.

What do you think the Spirit is saying?

Speechless Worship

Did you ever have a day where God just “wowed” you? Where His presence just floods over you like a river? And you find yourself in the Throne room. And you just can’t talk? That’s Ms. D today. Flooded with Him, speechless worship, and loving it!

Here is one of my favs. John Thurlow knows how to worship – it’s all about Jesus!

By John Thurlow of IHOP-KC

A STORM ALL AROUND YOU

Revelation

I know there are creatures all around you,
I know there are lightnings and thunderings
I know there’s a storm all around you,
Holy, Holy, Holy
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

I see seven lamps of fire burning and I,
I see a sea of glass mingled with fire burning,
I see the Son of man with eyes of fire burning,
Burning, burning, burning

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Halle-halle-halleluja
For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns
Everyone in the temple cries Glory
Everyone in the temple cries Holy

There is no one like You in all the heavens
No one like You, in all of the earth
We’re reaching for that open door, Lord show me more
