RHEMA 5/13/12  GRADUATED FROM CRITICISM THROUGH death to self

HEARD:  Dwell in peace with all men as much as you are able. 

 

Rom 12:17 NKJV

Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.

 

Heb 12:14-15 NKJV

Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord:

 

James 3:18 NKJV

Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

 

HEARD: Criticism.  I had this map in my hand.  The one you have now.  Does it help?  Not only does it help, it plants me.  Constructive feedback.  Sometimes I say sad things. 

 

John 12:24-25 NKJV

Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain.  25 He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.

 

John 3:29-31 NKJV

Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease.

 

COMMENTS:  Sometimes we do not receive positive feedback from people, in fact it is directly the opposite.  When we have given our very best and with Godís heart and the right motives, it is not always received appropriately.  It is in those times that we take what has been said back to God and allow Him to candle our hearts, faith and deeds and let Him correct us if necessary.  However when we have been completely obedient to the level of faith and clarity that we have in God, and what we give is not received, if we humble ourselves and give it back to Him, He plants what we gave in the ground, as seed for a coming harvest.  Not all criticism is discipline from God and He is Justice and knows how to reward His servants.

FAITHFUL GIVING 4/09/06

It moves My heart with such joy when I see you giving joyfully and expectantly.  I have ordained that the seed you plant must bring a harvest.  I AM Your Father Farmer and I created the seed to be planted, the soil to receive, the rain to water it, and the seed to respond and grow into a harvest of fruit.  Your harvest is directly apportioned to your planting.  One seed produces 30, 60 or a 100 fold, but without the seed there is no harvest.

 

Remember, I ordained that each seed bear fruit after its own kind.  Plant a dollar and you will receive more dollars.  Plant kindness and you will receive kindness.  Plant comfort and you will receive comfort in return.  Scatter My Words and My Words will return a harvest of plentiful Words.  Plant your time, and I will give you My time and otherís time.  Plant your love and I will pour out even more in return.  Give mercy and forgiveness and your own life will reap the same when you need even more.  I AM the God of more than enough.  I AM faithful to break the famine in your life as you are faithful to plant, and wait expectantly for your harvest of 30, 60 or a 100 fold return on your investment. 

 

2 Cor 9:6-14 NLT

Remember this ó a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop.  But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop.  You must each make up your own mind as to how much you should give.  Don't give reluctantly or in response to pressure.  For God loves the person who gives cheerfully.  And God will generously provide all you need.  Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.  As the Scriptures say, "Godly people give generously to the poor.  Their good deeds will never be forgotten." For God is the one who gives seed to the farmer and then bread to eat.  In the same way, he will give you many opportunities to do good, and he will produce a great harvest of generosity in you.  Yes, you will be enriched so that you can give even more generously.  And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will break out in thanksgiving to God.  So two good things will happen ó the needs of the Christians in Jerusalem will be met, and they will joyfully express their thanksgiving to God.  You will be glorifying God through your generous gifts.  For your generosity to them will prove that you are obedient to the Good News of Christ.  And they will pray for you with deep affection because of the wonderful grace of God shown through you.

 

Matt 13:23 AMP

As for what was sown on good soil, this is he who hears the Word and grasps and comprehends it; he indeed bears fruit and yields in one case a hundred times as much as was sown, in another sixty times as much, and in another thirty.

 

Gen 1:11-12 NKJV

Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth"; and it was so.  And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind.  And God saw that it was good.

RHEMA 5/10/12  OVERCOMING CRITICAL OPINIONS

 

HEARDPlay ball. 

PIX: I saw a bouncing Dalmatian covered with many spots.

 

HEARDIn my professional opinion.  I knew better.   End of subject. 

 

2 Peter 2:12-17 NKJV

But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption, 13 and will receive the wages of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime. They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, 14 having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children. 15 They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16 but he was rebuked for his iniquity: a dumb donkey speaking with a man's voice restrained the madness of the prophet.  17 These are wells without water, clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.

 

Eph 5:26-28 NKJV

Öthat He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.

 

1 Tim 6:11-16 NKJV

But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 13 I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate, 14 that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ's appearing, 15 which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16 who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.

 

QUOTE JOHN PAUL JACKSON

One of the most difficult thing that God does is to crucify our opinions.  One of my favorite quotes from Francis Frangipane is ďTo inoculate me from the praises of man, He baptized me in the criticisms of man until I died to the control of man.Ē God will use accusation, correction and adversity to bring death to self in us.

RHEMA 5/12/12  MANíS OPINION IS NOT GODíS

HEARD:  Danger.  Donít lose your faith, itís not about what they think.  Their opinions are not My own.  Itís not about you. 

Luke 10:16 AMP
He who hears and heeds you [disciples] hears and heeds Me; and he who slights and rejects you slights and rejects Me; and he who slights and rejects Me slights and rejects Him who sent Me.

RHEMA  5/16/12  ITíS NOT YOU, THIS ISNT DISCIPLINE

HEARD:  Itís not about you.  They are in My hands.  Frightening I know.  I am a good God.  I know what is best for all of My children.  Iím not correcting you sweetheart.  This isnít discipline.  Itís not about you. 

 

RHEMA 5/18/12  YOU GRADUATED

HEARD:  Witness.  I fell.

VISION:  I was looking down through the cracks to find me.  I felt a tap on my shoulder and it was Jesus asking me to turn around.

HEARD:  Sweetheart, you didnít fall, you graduated!  Iím so proud of you!  Thatís My girl.

MISC PAST WORDS TO PONDERS ABOUT OPINIONS

 

FINAL GOAL THE HARVEST  10/10/96

Where am I going, you ask.  I AM moving towards the grand finale of bringing in My final harvest, - an explosion of souls through My supernatural touch.  I have been training you underground with a long season of schooling.  You have been sorely chaffed, cut and pruned by the opinions of man. This has caused you to feel shame and become weary.  The enemy has wanted to take advantage with destruction and evil demise, but I come that you may have life and more abundantly.  I only allow your pruning to cause you to grow even stronger branches, and have fruitful harvests.  But rejoice, I AM now opening doors of favor for you with a green light to let you grow new branches of life and faith.  Your training was necessary, My love.  Now let us graft you into greater faith for greater works.

 

ďBut when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.Ē  (Matt 9:36-38 KJV)

DO NOT DESPISE PROPHESY  10/15/96

Do not allow manís opinions of your prophetic giftings to despise My treasures.  For you belong to Me and I have planted My Word in you.  I do not need their permission to use you.  Wash the shame away and trust Me in this.

 

ďQuench not the Spirit. 20 Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.Ē  (1 Thess 5:19-21 KJV)

 

=======

 

GRADUATING FROM RELIGIOUS OPINION  6/10/03

I AM bringing a holy remnant out of the streams of pharisaical religion that is polluted with opinion, debate, legalism, judgment and criticism.  Understand that when you see these fruits upon the lips of mankind, they do not represent My heart of mercy and grace.  The head of religion has grown large due to demanding the headship of control.  The church has suffered great loss and fallen due to her opinions.  My Spirit is deeply grieved.

 

Those who have graduated in shaking off the bonds of religion, they shall be promoted in the gifts of My Spirit.  But those chosen ones who have despised My workings and not left religion behind will find their exalted opinions turning to humble longings as they watch from the sidelines. It is through their humility that I shall reach them and change their hearts of stone to human flesh. I shall place within their hearts a hunger and thirst to experience My Presence.

 

ďNow the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.Ē  (2 Cor 3:17 NKJV)

 

ďThen the LORD said to Job, "Do you still want to argue with the Almighty? You are God's critic, but do you have the answers?"  Then Job replied to the LORD, "I am nothing--how could I ever find the answers?  I will put my hand over my mouth in silence. I have said too much already.  I have nothing more to say." (Job 40:1-5 NLT)

 


 

WORD TO PONDER:  PLANTING YOUR FAITH FOR A GREATER HARVEST  5/13/12

Beloved ones, I have been taking My own through a long journey of overcoming the hardened, opinionated mindsets of men.  In honor of your intercessions, I gave a second chance to find resolutions and although you changed, those with hardened opinions did not. 

 

I know how disheartening this is to let go, but I AM asking you to plant your faith.  If you continue and go through a third round, you are in danger of losing your faith and the good Word I have planted within you.  It is very important to Me that I become your feedback, and you hear My opinion about you, and not the opinions of men.  When you continue in the same fashion year after year, it becomes abuse to your soul.  The condition of their soil is not your fault.  I do not want you to repeat this season again.  You have not failed, you have not fallen, you have graduated.  I AM taking you away unto Myself, and away from the hardpan soil of menís hearts.  It is time to give them to Me and I will break up their fallow ground.  As you give what you have sown to Me, I AM watering and bringing forth a greater harvest that is far beyond what you image or think!

 

Mark 4:2-20 NLT

He taught them by telling many stories in the form of parables, such as this one: 3 "Listen!  A farmer went out to plant some seed.  4 As he scattered it across his field, some of the seed fell on a footpath, and the birds came and ate it.  5 Other seed fell on shallow soil with underlying rock.  The seed sprouted quickly because the soil was shallow.  6 But the plant soon wilted under the hot sun, and since it didn't have deep roots, it died.  7 Other seed fell among thorns that grew up and choked out the tender plants so they produced no grain.  8 Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they sprouted, grew, and produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted!" 9 Then he said, "Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand."

 

Later, when Jesus was alone with the twelve disciples and with the others who were gathered around, they asked him what the parables meant.  11 He replied, "You are permitted to understand the secret of the Kingdom of God.  But I use parables for everything I say to outsiders, 12 so that the Scriptures might be fulfilled: 'When they see what I do, they will learn nothing.  When they hear what I say, they will not understand.  Otherwise, they will turn to me and be forgiven.'" 13 Then Jesus said to them, "If you can't understand the meaning of this parable, how will you understand all the other parables? 

 

The farmer plants seed by taking God's word to others.  15 The seed that fell on the footpath represents those who hear the message, only to have Satan come at once and take it away.  16 The seed on the rocky soil represents those who hear the message and immediately receive it with joy.  17 But since they don't have deep roots, they don't last long.  They fall away as soon as they have problems or are persecuted for believing God's word.  18 The seed that fell among the thorns represents others who hear God's word, 19 but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this life, the lure of wealth, and the desire for other things, so no fruit is produced.  20 And the seed that fell on good soil represents those who hear and accept God's word and produce a harvest of thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much as had been planted!"
