2/06/15  godís gracious gifts to us


HEARD:  Honor folks.  Lay down.  Be kind. Agape.  Gracious daughter.  So what did they call John? They called him Godís gracious gift.


[The Hebrew name John means ďGodís gracious gift.Ē  The heartbeat of God is to give honor to whom honor is due.  It is to love in such a way as to lay down one's life for another.  It is to be gracious.]


Romans 13:7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor.


John 15:13 Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.


Luke 4:22   And all bore him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son?



χαρις charis khar'-ece

from 5463; graciousness (as gratifying), of manner or act (abstract or concrete; literal, figurative or spiritual; especially the divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life; including gratitude):óacceptable, benefit, favour, gift, grace(- ious), joy, liberality, pleasure, thank(-s, -worthy).

See Greek 5463





I dreamed that a grandfather named John and his grandson named John (whose name means Godís gracious gift) were working on a gift together.  The grandfather had a shiny red metal background of 2 metal book covers and the grandson made a bunch of popup pages to attach to the inside and it was a beautiful wall art decoration for Christmas.  It was a large very colorful popout book to mount on the wall.  I was delighted with it! 


Wayne was sitting next to me on the couch and had opened 2 Christmas checks and we were so grateful.




DREAM:  There was a day that came where the Lord decreed and poured out upon Thomas, (whose name means ĎTwiní) an anointing to go to the nations.  I saw the Lord seated on the throne.  I saw an angel standing in front of Him to receive the decree and he was to take and go forth to pour it out over the one.  I heard it was a John Anointing.  There were 2 things that blessed me most about this Word.  The first was that my dream was a porthole into the throne room and I was allowed to see the decree to the angelic messenger.  The second was the understanding of the tremendous BLESSING this ANOINTING is for those who receive it.


SANDY:  I have several rhema entries in 2013 about the Lord talking about "to see is to believe."  And this was directly related to those who have doubted as Thomas did and that they would be given what they had asked for, which is the TANGIBLE, MANIFESTED WORD OF GOD ON EARTH.  These people were disappointed in the delays of prophetic Words and became discouraged over the prophetic in general.  Godís timing and delays are for His purpose of the glory of the Lord.


John 20:27-29   Then said he to Thomas, Reach here your finger, and behold my hands; and reach here your hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.  28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.  29 Jesus said unto him, Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.




Dear ones, for years you have been put through faith school of stretching to believe for what you have not seen.  Yes you have been living by faith and not by sight.  You have seen in part and understood even less, and yet you have clung onto My Word when there was nothing in the natural to validate what you have believed!  Great testings have come and gone and still you choose to believe!  How could I not reward those who have diligently hung on and not given up?  Thomas doubted and said, show me and I will believe.  But I have said blessed are those who have believed and not yet seen!  Dear ones, I AM coming with rewards and promises manifested because I DO find faith in the earth! 


It is time to see what you have believed!  It is time to see the manifestation of My kingdom on earth.  It is time to see signs following as confirmations to My Word.  See it and declare it in the Spirit, then see it manifest on earth.  Angels and heaven are already rejoicing at these long sought after breakthroughs!


Mark 16:20 And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.


Romans 4:17 (As it is written, I have made you a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who gives life to the dead, and calls those things which are not as though they were.



I was pondering the delay of seeing Godís Words manifested and noticed that Thomas was there during the delay over Lazarus!  The whole delay was so that a greater glory and miracle could be manifested so that people would believe Jesusí Words.  If Jesus had just come to heal Lazarus when he was sick it would not have been such a great display of Godís powerful Word.


John 11:14-16; 32; 40-44  Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead. 15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent you may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.  Then said Thomas, who is called Didymus, unto his fellow disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him..  (!!!) 


Then when Mary came where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died..


Jesus said unto her, Said I not unto you, that, if you would believe, you should see the glory of God? 41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 And I knew that you hear me always: but because of the people who stand by I said it, that they may believe that you have sent me. 43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. 44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave clothes: and his face was bound about with a cloth. Jesus said unto them, Loose him, and let him go.



John was known as John the Beloved and he was the one who drew closest to Jesus and laid his head upon the heartbeat of Jesus.  I have always loved that because even the disciples asked John to ask Jesus certain questions, recognizing the relationship they had. 


My sense is that when the Lord said a John anointing, He is saying that He is going to pour out an anointing to love like never before, and that love will overtake all those who have doubted and it will finally be the time to see the visible, manifested Word of God upon the earth.


His gracious gifts are going to be poured out liberally through humble people who give honor to others and lay their lives down in service as unto the Lord.  Those who know how to draw close to the Lord and commune with Him will be very favored.
