12/16/07 MOURNING stripped away
HEARD: Comfort her.
PIX: I saw one of our intercessors spray some
degreaser, eraser stuff down the cracks of a house. I
had the impression that they were water marks as though
someone had been crying salty tears that left their mark
upon our home.
I saw a loved one come to me and say, “Stop grieving. I
am not sad.”
PARABLE: Today I took off my black glove in
order to answer my cell phone in the store. I was
walking down the isles while we were talking and I didnt
notice until getting line to collect my things that the
glove was missing. I searched all over and it was not
QUICKENED MEMORY: The Holy Spirit brings all
things into remembrance of things He is speaking into
our lives. Today at church a girl wanted to see my
gloves when I took them off.
REVELATION: It was quickened to me that the Lord
was focusing on the fact that He was stripping off the
old skin of black mourning and sadness.
Isa 61:4 NKJV
To comfort all who mourn, To console those who mourn
in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy
for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of
heaviness ;That they may be called trees of
righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be
glorified." And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they
shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall
repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many
Heb 12:8-11 NKJV
Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected
us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more
readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and
live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as
seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may
be partakers of His holiness. Now no chastening seems to
be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless,
afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness
to those who have been trained by it.
Lam 3:31-33 NLT
For the Lord does not abandon anyone forever. Though
he brings grief, he also shows compassion according to
the greatness of his unfailing love. For he does not
enjoy hurting people or causing them sorrow.
Ezek 18:31-32 NKJV
For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,"
says the Lord GOD. "Therefore turn and live!"
Ezek 33:11 NKJV
Say to them: 'As I live,' says the Lord GOD, 'I have
no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the
wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your
evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?'
