RHEMA 12/10/08 CROSSING
OVER WITH EVERYTHING WE HAVE GOT
Today the following scripture
popped into my mind and the Lord brought back the
following parable to me. He quickened the fact that
this is a serious time of trying with all our effort,
body, soul and spirit to cross over and come into the
place the Lord wants us to land.
Mark 4:35-37 NKJV
On the same day, when
evening had come, He said to them, "Let us cross over to
the other side." 36 Now when they had left the
multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was.
And other little boats were also with Him.
PARABLE: PRAYING EVEN MORE WITH AIM AND PURPOSE
When I was a teen, we used to row boats down the rapids
of a wild river. I recall the only time my Dad ever
yelled at me. They had already rowed through and across
the rapids to the boat ramp and he was watching me come
through. Suddenly he started yelling and screaming at me
as loud as he could. I was not trying hard enough and he
knew it. His words were with force and impact that I
needed to pull hard against the current and move
strongly across the river to the other side NOW.
I heard his voice and looked at his face and I knew this
was serious stuff. I rowed like my life depended upon it
and made it across. The boat ramp, the place to take
out, was just above another fast moving current where
there was a canyon and more rapids. If I didnt make the
ramp, I would have gone alone several miles down stream
before they could fish me out of the river. Was my Dad
mad at me? NO.
There are times to push with the current and there are
times to pull against the current. These next 4 years,
we must keep abreast of the issues and pull against the
current. Just like dependants, always before we have had
the balance of the powers (between the red and the blue)
to do our pushing and pulling for us within government.
Now our balance has been pulled off to the side and we
are left with the battle ground of prayer and decree to
bring forth victory. The time to pull our weight in
prayer is NOW.
The people and government that He chooses to use is not
ours to fight against. We are the ONLY salt that the
earth has. If we dont pray our blessing, covering and
anointed help upon the leaders for this hour, then we
are already bankrupt. If we curse them with prophesies
of judgment, then we will get exactly that. We will get
what we prophesy and reap the results. The road of
judgment and vengeance always breeds death. It is not
God’s heart to kill and destroy, but to give abundant
life. Yes He is absolutely severe to those who do not
listen and absolutely kind to those who do. But He
remains our Good Father Who knows exactly how to raise
up each child. We must not let disappointment cloud our
vision. We must gather what faith we have and spend it
to pull across the current to get OUT of the worldly
spirit, and pray like our lives depended upon it.
RHEMA 12/20/08 Turning the wheel with everything he had
and I were flying in the car in the sky. He had the
steering wheel turned all the way to the right. He was
pulling hard on it and it took everything he had to pull
it in the right direction. I snuggled into him in a
clingy way and I was clinging right into his efforts of
turning the wheel. I said to him, “I hope I am not
bothering you. I can’t help it!”
Triumphant faith. Courage. I have kept you.
Matt 7:13-14 NKJV
"Enter by the narrow gate;
for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to
destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14
Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way
which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
