As I went out the door on deliveries today I noticed our
cats Cally & Cuddles under the carport roof. I had
pushed their pillows together during the 15 degree
weather, and they had been sharing the heating pad that
was overlapping the pillows. Their pillows were still
joined together and I noticed that they were all curled
up really close and touching, but they still on their
own pillows. That is how it is when the Lord joins us
with others in unity. As we connect with others, we are
a source of warmth and comfort for one another.
As I was
getting into the car and thinking about this, I heard
the Lord say:
Under one roof. Trust Me.
realized the Lord was also sharing this parable with me
about a broader application of the joining together of
people and ministries. The canopy of protection is
extended for all those who dwell there.
When our cats Cally and Cuddles are sharing the same
pillow, I often rub them with one hand at the same time:
my thumb on one side and my little finger on the other.
They enjoy my touch at the same time. This is true with
our rhema Words as well. As the Lord reaches out to us,
it directly touches others who are joined in the unity
of His Spirit.
QUICKENED CONCEPTS FROM RICK JOYNER TAPE: To paraphrase,
Rick said that in the joining together of the body of
Christ, it is important to remember that not every joint
is supposed to actually be touching. For instance the
foot bone is not directly connected to the shoulder
bone. He specifically said that it was important to pray
and hear the Lord on who we are supposed to join up
with, as in these last days the only thing that will
stand is ministries doing what the Holy Spirit has
directed, and not manís ambitious programs. And even in
the Holy Spirit led ministries, they are not necessarily
meant to directly touch.
note about the following rhema poem: The Lord loves to
speak to us in parables. I inherited a Teddy Bear
collection that used to be my sonís when he was small.
The Lord started giving us parables and precious Words
about teddy bears. To summarize the rhema about these
bears, I understand that these bears come in all shapes
and sizes, each with their own enduement (clothing) and
they represent the generation of children that are sent
to the streets with His anointing.

PONDER FROM PAST RHEMA: UNITY, THE PLATFORM FOR POWER
starts small and builds outward. When I build unity, I
start with a cell and then add to it. I start with a
small team of those who are willing to lay down their
lives and their agendas to listen to Me and to one
another. It is in their willingness to love and serve
one another that their hearts are primed for unity. A
united front requires oneness of mind, purpose and
function. This is the result of loving support in
relationship with Me and those who love Me.
appropriate, line up and become friends with My Word,
together we become one. This joining becomes a team-ship
with Me. I will deliver you as you forgive, and you
shall deliver as I forgive. It is in this united front
that you & I will be released into deliverance and
healings like you never imagined.
wonderful it is, how pleasant, when brothers live
together in harmony! For harmony is as precious as the
fragrant anointing oil that was poured over Aaron's
down his beard and onto the border of his robe. Harmony
is as refreshing as the dew from Mount Hermon that falls
on the mountains of Zion. And the LORD has pronounced
his blessing, even life forevermore." (Ps 133 NLT)
