RHEMA 6/27/11 REMEMBER LOT'S WIFE
Jesus said to remember Lot's wife. It seems that when
we look back, we get stuck in old traumas. They are like
beacons calling us backwards and we get stuck in time.
Sometimes when we look back, it immobilizes us...
especially when we "remember" pain and old trigger
points of trauma. Wayne and I have been praying that the
Lord will heal all our trigger points of soul and body
and spirit trauma. Fix our eyes on You, oh Lord!
Another aspect of this is learning obedience. Lot's
wife stopped to look back and this caused her to lose
her life. An angel held her hand to get her out of town
and told her to flee and not to look back, but she did.
The other day I was watching a documentary on Sodom and
Gomorrah, and was thinking about the fire and brimstone
raining from the sky. So often our lives are protected
only by split seconds and had she not stopped, whatever
fell upon her would have missed her.
I have felt for a long time that obedience classes are a
part of that training to learn to obey and not question,
not hesitate, dally, and go around the barn. Our divine
moments are set to be in synch with His angels and
kingdom and obedience is going to be a strong part of
those divine encounters.
Luke 17:31-37 NKJV
"In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his
goods are in the house, let him not come down to take
them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let
him not turn back. 32 Remember Lot's wife. 33 Whoever
seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses
his life will preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night
there will be two men in one bed: the one will be taken
and the other will be left. 35 Two women will be
grinding together: the one will be taken and the other
left. 36 Two men will be in the field: the one will be
taken and the other left." 37 And they answered and
said to Him, "Where, Lord?" So He said to them,
"Wherever the body is, there the eagles will be gathered
Gen 19:16-17; 24-26 NKJV
And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand,
his wife's hand, and the hands of his two daughters, the
Lord being merciful to him, and they brought him out and
set him outside the city. 17 So it came to pass, when
they had brought them outside, that he said, "Escape for
your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in
the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be
destroyed." ... 24 Then the Lord rained brimstone and
fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the
heavens. 25 So He overthrew those cities, all the plain,
all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the
ground. 26 But his wife looked back behind him, and she
became a pillar of salt.
The cab I entered today had a sticker that said, "Dont
look back, remember Lot's wife." Then I come here to
find this posted on your Facebook. Being sensitive and
obedient to the Spirit of God will help us avoid so many
mistakes and dangers that we make. We cant claim to love
Him and be disobedient. May we be focused on Him and
forget the past with its glory and pains. May we be
obedient to Him always in Jesus name.
