RHEMA 12/04/11 OVERCOMING THE SOUL GIANT OF FEAR OF
VISION: I saw an amphitheater and ballerinas
toe dancing on the backs of the seats. Then I saw a
giant beanstalk growing across the theater and up into
the sky. I realized this was Jack and the Beanstalk and
the Lord was speaking about a soul giant.
(Yesterday on FB I said the following)
"There is another aspect to this theme (of discernment)
that the Lord showed me this morning. To the same degree
that we doubt our own ability to hear clearly, is the
same degree of faith we have when receiving other
people's words - questioning issues of discernment. Many
times people who do not hear the Lord at all have more
faith to receive other people's words because they have
never wrestled with issues of wavering and discernment
and they are still
naive. It is similar to the old adage, "To
the same degree you trust yourself, you trust others."
James 1:4-8 NKJV
But let patience have its perfect work, that you may
be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 5 If any of
you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all
liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to
him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for
he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and
tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that
he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a
double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

OVERCOMING FEAR OF DECEPTION 11/03/09
It is true that when you are exposed to supernatural
realms, it takes a part of your
This causes you to feel insecure and without Me, you
will be shaken.
Precious heart, I understand your fears of being
deceived when being exposed to supernatural
testimonies. I would rather have you carefully praying
and leaning on Me than being presumptuous and falling
into traps. If you are independent and presumptuous,
ambitious and not leaning on Me, then yes there is
reason for concern.
I do not want you to be afraid, because fear opposes
faith. You place the boundaries and limits on your own
faith and I will take you as far as you are desiring to
go without becoming fearful and unstable. Have I been
faithful to lead you thus far? Can you look back in
your life and believe you have known the One Who loves
and watches over you so carefully? I promised that
anyone who asked Me for good gifts, I would not give a
stone or a serpent. So trust that the same One Who has
taken care of you thus far will also keep you and not
give you over to deception.
Gen 3:22 NKJV
Then the LORD God said, "Behold, the man has become
like one of Us, to know good and evil.”
2 Cor 11:28 NKJV
...besides the other things, what comes upon me
daily: my deep concern for all the churches.
Matt 7:9-12 NKJV
Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks
for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a
fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being
evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how
much more will your Father who is in heaven give good
things to those who ask Him!
COMMENTS: I have recently been snagged with
wavering on issues of discerning strong meat in what I
and others hear. It is causing my faith to wobble and
interfering with my ability to hear the Lord. When we
waver God grows silent. Today I realized that the root
of this wavering is fear of deception.
When one begins to pull out a root, he moves the weed
back and forth so it will let go of imbedded soil, and
that IS the action of wavering. The movement back and
forth makes the impacted hard places flexible, yielded
and finally let go and come out. This is an answer to
prayer, because I have been praying that the devil would
have no hook in my soul and have nothing in me.
John 14:30 NKJV
...The ruler of this world is coming, and he has
nothing in Me.
CONFIRMATION: I just turned with AH tot he
following Word to Ponder:
LET GO AND
HOLD ON! 5/19/05
You will know when it is time to uproot a weed, when
suddenly something within you becomes paramount and
shouts for resolution. These were tiny seeds that have
been watered in your life, perhaps through generations.
I have allowed them to grow to climax, in order to
preserve My good work in your life. If I had dealt with
these issues sooner, it would have so deeply disturbed
the soil of your foundations, that you would not have
had the strong roots to be able to hold on to My good
plantings within you.
Cry out to Me to uproot the weed that is now full
grown. Precious one, I do NOT condemn you. I know this
issue screams for resolution and you know that it does
not measure up to My image. As you release and yield to
Me this part of your soul, hold onto what I have spoken
into your life. I have planted many good plants in you,
My beautiful flower. Do not allow the sifting of a
sudden upheaval take the roots of your beauty and sweet
smelling fragrance. Hold onto My Words, hold onto Me,
hold onto our intimacy, hold onto My love for you. Do
not allow self condemnation to cause you to let go of
what we have held together as precious.
Matt 13:28-30 NLT
" 'Shall we pull out the weeds?' they asked. "He
replied, 'No, you'll hurt the wheat if you do. Let both
grow together until the harvest. Then I will tell the
harvesters to sort out the weeds and burn them and to
put the wheat in the barn.' "
