PARABLES: SURVIVORS 8/20/08
DOCTORS APPOINTMENT – I was at a specialists
doctor appointment who analyzes blood work and I was
thinking about what he said about the bone marrow and
effects different medications have on them. (DMARDS,
like Methotextrate.) While I was waiting I turned in my
pocket PC and randomly opened to this scripture. I knew
the Lord was speaking to me.
For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not
afterward have spoken of another day. 9 There remains
therefore a rest for the people of God. 10 For he who
has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his
works as God did from His. Let us therefore be diligent
to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the
same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God
is living and powerful, and sharper than any
two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of
soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow , and
is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but
all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom
we must give account.
QUICKENED EYE GLANCE: Then my eye glanced at a
sign in his office that said, SURVIVORS. It bothered me
to read the sign but it was oddly quickened to me. Then
tonight this QW post came through about survive and
blood diseases from my April rhema:
REDEEMING LOST GENERATIONAL GIFTS
HEARD: Can people who live, survive? Sad parts
PIX: I saw glistening gems at the sandy bottom of a
body of water.
HEARD: These are gifts. These are last day treasures
not seen in many generations.
COMMENT: Hearing this reminded me of a unique gift that
is in my husband’s family line. She was a Christian and
had the gift of healing horses and also blood diseases.
Many people from miles around brought their animals and
she would pray and they would be healed.
Isa 49:8-9 NKJV
I will preserve You and give You As a covenant to the
people, To restore the earth, To cause them to inherit
the desolate heritages; That You may say to the
prisoners, 'Go forth,' To those who are in darkness,
Isa 61:4-7 NKJV
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 generations. 5
Strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, And the sons
of the foreigner Shall be your plowmen and your
vinedressers. 6 But you shall be named the priests of
the LORD, They shall call you the servants of our God.
You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, And in their
glory you shall boast. 7 Instead of your shame you shall
have double honor, And instead of confusion they shall
rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they
shall possess double; Everlasting joy shall be theirs.
WORD TO PONDER: REDEEMING LOST GENERATIONAL GIFTS
Precious treasures long forgotten are waiting to be
discovered and salvaged. Unique gifts, great in number,
are waiting to be restored to family lines and to My
people. I have remembered My Word, My gifts and My
promises to past generations and I have preserved their
fruits for a historical time and a needy people. Even
now I AM exposing them and revealing them to those who
search for hidden treasures.
Isa 58:12 NKJV
Those from among you shall build the old waste
places; You shall raise up the foundations of many
generations; And you shall be called the Repairer of the
Breach, The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.
UPDATE HEARD 8/21/08: ALIVE!
UPDATE 8/27/08: I watched a true story last
night about a lady who taught a class of broken kids who
had been abused and whose parents were in prison. She
taught them how to stick together, communicate their
pain, study together and support one another as a
family, and hope and believe that they could go on to
college and find their dreams. She kept saying they
were Survivors and the class was called
Victims No More. It was really quickened to me that
the Lord was focusing on the word, SURVIVE as the body
of Christ has gone through a terrible onslaught.
Jer 31:1-4 NKJV
"At the same time," says the LORD,"I will be the God
of all the families of Israel, and they shall be My
people." 2 Thus says the LORD: "The people who survived
the sword Found grace in the wilderness — Israel, when
I went to give him rest." 3 The LORD has appeared of
old to me, saying: "Yes, I have loved you with an
everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have
drawn you. 4 Again I will build you, and you shall be
rebuilt, O virgin of Israel!
Acts 27:34-36 NKJV
Therefore I urge you to take nourishment, for this is
for your survival , since not a hair will fall from the
head of any of you." 35 And when he had said these
things, he took bread and gave thanks to God in the
presence of them all; and when he had broken it he began
to eat. 36 Then they were all encouraged, and also took
