RHEMA 7/26/02: Why are we Sitting Here Until we Die?


[From meeting in Albany]


I had a totally awesome time at Bobby Conner meeting. He confirmed so much, I was really encouraged. Here is some of the things he shared:


God is not sending mighty mouse, He is sending weak vessels with a limp! Not only that, but He is sending the weakest like the 4 lepers (autoimmune disease) who were losing their bodies, to leave the walls and go out and get the food to break the famine and bring it back to the people. AND after he mentioned all of this, a friend leaned over and said to me, "One thing for sure, we sure aint no Mighty Mouses!" And at that exact moment he whirled around and pointed right at me, (3 rows back) and I felt a blast come through his hand, and he said very loudly with his finger still pointing, "TELL THEM!!!!!!!"


He said God is not sending superstars, He is sending the weak. He also mentioned about not being sucked dry this time and he felt it was a sign of our maturity. These 2 were direct confirmations to my post this week about getting our focus off the superstars.


His sermon was on the 4 lepers whose bodies were decaying and they chose to leave the city walls to find food. The Lord intervened on behalf of the famine and they came back to the city and told people how to get it.


It reminded me of those who have promises from the Lord that they would be sent to lay hands on the sick when they don't even have hands.


Bobby said that if you sit there and count your losses, you will die, but if you move out and trust God for a future and a hope, then you have one.


He said his football coach always said, “Bobby if you are going to fall, fall forward, as eventually we will get to the goal.” This was touching to me since Steve had seen the football picture of my setting the football and kicking it through the goalies.


2 Kings 7:3-11 NLT

Now there were four men with leprosy sitting at the entrance of the city gates. "Why should we sit here waiting to die ?" they asked each other. 4 "We will starve if we stay here, and we will starve if we go back into the city. So we might as well go out and surrender to the Aramean army. If they let us live, so much the better. But if they kill us, we would have died anyway."


5 So that evening they went out to the camp of the Arameans, but no one was there! 6 For the Lord had caused the whole army of Aram to hear the clatter of speeding chariots and the galloping of horses and the sounds of a great army approaching. "The king of Israel has hired the Hittites and Egyptians to attack us!" they cried out. 7 So they panicked and fled into the night, abandoning their tents, horses, donkeys, and everything else, and they fled for their lives.


8 When the lepers arrived at the edge of the camp, they went into one tent after another, eating, drinking wine, and carrying out silver and gold and clothing and hiding it. 9 Finally, they said to each other, "This is not right. This is wonderful news, and we aren't sharing it with anyone! If we wait until morning, some terrible calamity will certainly fall upon us. Come on, let's go back and tell the people at the palace."


10 So they went back to the city and told the gatekeepers what had happened - that they had gone out to the Aramean camp and no one was there! The horses and donkeys were tethered and the tents were all in order, but there was not a single person around. 11 Then the gatekeepers shouted the news to the people in the palace.



I am reminded of the scripture where they were healed as they went.


Luke 17:14-19 AMP

And when He saw them, He said to them, Go [at once] and show yourselves to the priests. And as they went, they were cured and made clean. [Lev 14:2-32.]  15 Then one of them, upon seeing that he was cured, turned back, recognizing and thanking and praising God with a loud voice; 16 And he fell prostrate at Jesus' feet, thanking Him [over and over]. And he was a Samaritan.  17 Then Jesus asked, Were not [all] ten cleansed? Where are the nine?  18 Was there no one found to return and to recognize and give thanks and praise to God except this alien?  19 And He said to him, Get up and go on your way. Your faith (your trust and confidence that spring from your belief in God) has restored you to health.



PIX: I saw a pipe and something whooshing down.


HEARD: I would like to highlight the way you look. It's a washing of your old nature. Fallen. Store front. Divine nature.


Could I tell you something? It's not enough. Yes it is. You need more grace. Give it to Me says the Lord. And I will fix your cracks. Without fault. Quickly, quickly rise to the occasion. How about one step at a time? As you go.


HEARD: The body of Christ is hurting.


PIX: I saw a lady angel that was smiling with eyes twinkling. She was in JC Penny's and dressed in a leopard's skin coat and hat.


JC = for Jesus Christ

Pennys = for sent one

Leopard = spots and wrinkles

Women's clothing = women endument


HEARD: That's where her spots have taken her. To JC Penny's clothing store. From your side, such a disappointment and failure. That's not what I see.


PIX: I saw someone carting a huge box on a dolly.


HEARD; Overload. Spanned through the mountains. I will lift you and call you by My Name for I have not forgotten you.


QUICKENED EYE GLANCE: Today at Mr K's my eyes landed on a big red sign that said, “STAIRS.” On the way home my eyes landed on 555.


That's triple grace!



As you gaze into the mirror, you understand the need for My having to tightly reign you in. You see and feel as though you could use a new store front, for it is sadly lacking in appearance. Have patience, for I will fix your cracks a step at a time as you go. And the spots will leave as I wash your fallen nature.


I have not forgotten you. You shall span the mountain before you as I lift you up. You think that you need more grace to overcome, but I say I have given you enough. “Grace, grace, grace” I speak to the mountain in your life and it shall become history in no time at all.


“And all of us have had that veil removed so that we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord. And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like him and reflect his glory even more.” (2 Cor 3:18 NLT)





HEARD [at Walmart]: I am moving you to a better place. Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit.



Annies Visions Book 3 page 55



"Today I was terribly nervous because I was scheduled to take the whole evening chapel service and I was pretty afraid. In prayer I was given to intercede for the people in strong cryings. After a while He took me away unto Himself and showed me how He sent a special force - As it were a chariot = to bring man unto Himself. This forced He used to bring ALL of His own ever near and closer to Himself. This chariot was not made of but of special forced which were tribulations, trials, pains and sufferings.


The Lord, Himself, was occupied with placing or withdrawing of these forces and His purpose was to bring His own unto Himself in order that He might reveal Himself and allow His Word concerning Himself and His being to shine forth to them. These forces came into operation by His Word alone. He did not allow any other, not even the people themselves, this responsibility. He alone ordained and sent forth these forces which like homing chariots would ever draw and bring His own ones ever nearer unto Himself.


Nor would He permit anyone else to withdraw these forces until they had done their good work. Before His set time no one was allowed to touch them, for they must accomplish that for which they were sent forth and must not cease until the chariot returned to His very doors. Whether it be pain or sufferings, problems or dark clouds, trials, or persecutions or any other force of tribulation, all were sent forth from Him. And He was quite ready and willing to send forth even more, and one after another, in order to be certain that His people should reach Him.


As they reached Him, they must then be separated from that force and trial. They must no longer abide in His chariot but alight from it and come into His house, as it were. Although He had no pleasure in sending forth these forces, He took great pleasure in bringing His own ones unto Himself.


Nevertheless, He did not desire them to stop in the way and begin to behold the chariot. They must not look at the pressures He was using, for to do so would result in the delaying in the journey. These forces would do their work effectively and certainly, but His people must keep on traveling forward, ever keeping their eyes upon Him and upon their destination and not on the forces He was using.


The Lord concerned Himself with the withdrawing of these forces at the right moment when the chariot of the forces of tribulation would be dismissed having fulfilled its task and having brought His own to the place He desired."
