Oh God!!! My heart is crying out to you and I am overwhelmed by Your Presence, Your love is so great, so powerful, so indescribable.  I can't contain it!!!!  I want to scream it from the rooftops, to stand among billions and declare your mercy, your faithfulness your majesty and grace!!!!

You are circumcising my heart, you are answering my prayers, you are so real, so alive and so HERE!!!!  Thank you thank you thank you thank you Father!  For you and you alone are worthy, so worthy to be praised, to be honored, to be worshipped.  How can this mighty chorus of my heart ever be subdued, How can any word, any language anything in all the universe and eternity ever fulfill its need to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!

How can it be?? I cannot comprehend your great LOVE and MERCY, I cannot, I cannot.  You are... You are... so wonderful, so mighty so awesome, .... I cannot find the words, I cannot shed enough tears, there is nothing nothing nothing that I could give you to say Thank you enough.

Cause the nations to hear your voice, cause all the people of the earth to turn their hearts to you God!  That they might see you, even for a moment, that they would know and understand your Great Love.

I am so humbled, so humbled by You.  To be in your presence, changes me, conforms me, softens my heart, and breaks down barriers.  Your light pierces the darkness and reveals... It is indescribable!!!!!!!!!!!

You never give up, you never ever ever give up.  You love me so much, so much, I can't explain it but my heart wants to split open and pour it out because I can't contain it.

Father more than anything I want to be at your feet, at your feet, and just say Thank you over and over and over and over again.

Give God Glory!

Many who read these posts, hopefully have seen a change in direction and focus.  I want to share with you the most recent prophetic bulletin from MorningStar Ministries - Ricky Joyner.  This is also shared on my facebook page...  You can find the prophetic bulletin here.

And what I have posted on my facebook page is below. I am sharing a snippet of another post I just put up from Rick Joyner that confirms much of what is being said in this prophecy:

"Impatience is a main reason why some never receive their promises. Another reason why opportunities, great movements, and visitations of the Lord are missed by so many is that their vision is clouded by the affairs of everyday life. Few are able to pull themselves away from the clamor of their lives to climb up to a place of vision where they can see with His eyes. This is why the Lord rebuked those who could perceive the signs of impending weather better than the signs of the times. The weather affected their everyday lives, and this is what they had most of their attention on. To discern the purposes of the Lord, they have to be our main focus. We must truly “seek first the kingdom” in order to see its coming."

There are many of us, me included, that have in the very recent past, been concerned of the impending judgment and doom and we have spent much of our time and energy on bringing to the attention of others, the work of satan - we must stop this!!! This is only a distraction and while it is important to know satan's presence is real and his plan is to steal, kill and destroy - we must give glory to God! We must share the GOOD news and turn people toward God, and not be captivated by the sin and overwhelming evil that exists. We must! God does not give us a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind.Let us focus on the Kingdom of God, seeking it first!!

Thank you God!

I just wanted to share my gratitude for you God, here on this blog.. tonight.  The hour is late, or early if you think of the time, its morning.  I have had a good, day but at the same time there were moments when I was completely out of your will, and sinned.  There were moments when I heard your voice encouraging me to do this or that, but I let my fear, or flesh get in the way... they are both one in the same some days.

I am so weak without you.  I am so vulnerable without you.  Teach me to lay it ALL down...everything, I can do nothing apart from you, I have no strength apart from you and I can't make sense of anything, apart from you!!!

Please continue to crucify this flesh, this mind, this intellect.  Please cause me to rise up, as you rise up within me, to speak words of encouragement, and exhortation, teach me your ways God, transform my mind into your own.  Give me your strength as my own diminishes that you might live fully through me... cause me to yield every faculty to you Father!

Thank you for the forming of a repentant heart, and I pray God that you continue this work in me until it is complete.  Thank you for shining light in all the dark places and the continued revelation that you provide.

Thank you for the healing that is taking place in the lives of those I love, those I know of, and all that I have prayed for...

Thank you for my family, although we are apart, remind us each of one another that we would keep each other in our prayers and for those that aren't around, or in contact frequently, turn their hearts toward you Father - cause them to think of you and remember.

I am so amazed, utterly in awe at your mercy and grace.  I can't comprehend it, but I am so thankful for it.

What else can I say, there are no words to describe the gratitude that continues to well up within me.  How can I ever express it fully?  I can't and so I will be content to be at your feet all the days of my life, for eternity trying hard as I may to say Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

I wish I could get on a megaphone and speak out to the entire universe, how wonderful and mighty You are.  How great your love is!  How absolutely magnificent and powerful your Love is!!!

Thank you Father, Thank you!!!

Spirit of homosexuality & sexual perversion

This is truth.  I have dealt with this most of my life.  This testimony is powerful and I pray as I have done many times that I would be delivered completely.  Please agree with me in prayer for that!!!  None of this is worth the separation from God, nor will it bring anything but emptiness and short lived pleasures, that only leave you feeling empty that much more.

This post is for those who want to hear these things and are seeking, even if it is secretly in your heart of hearts to be free from this.  There is no condemnation... or judgment.  We have an identity crisis which I have posted about many times.  We are NOT what we do, especially what we do in or with our bodies.  We are MUCH more than that.

African Pastor Testimony - Prior to his execution for being Christian.

I pray that I would have this kind of resolve and revelation in my heart/spirit.. What a testimony. This was found nailed to his wall, after he was executed for being Christian. This came from Chuck Missler, during one of his teachings.

I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed.
I have Holy Spirit power.
The die has been cast.
I have stepped over the line.
The decision has been made.
I am a disciple of His.
I won't look back, let up, slow down, back away or be still.
My past is redeemed, my present makes sense and my future is secure.
I am finished with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colourless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits or popularity.
I don't have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded.
I now live by faith, I lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and labour by power.
My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way rough, my companions few, my guide reliable, my mission clear.
I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed.
I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
I won't give up, shut up, or let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and preached up for the cause of Christ.
I am a disciple of Jesus.
I must go until He comes, give until I drop, preach until all know, and work until He stops me.

And when He comes for His own, He will have no problems recognizing me - my banner will be clear!!!

The prison of sin.

This evening I had one of those quick dreams, sorta like flashes of bits and pieces of a movie. Typically when I have these, they are just flashes of pictures and while the pictures are flashing there is a story being told. In this particular one I just saw flashes of a house being destroyed because it was built in the middle of a curve. Surely enough one day someone came along, speeding through and crashed into the home, killing all seven of his occupants. I suppose the split second question popped into my mind as to why... and it was obvious the house probably shouldn't have been built there. But God gave me another flash, that if a wall had been there, all would have been well. Then He made me think of the wall that Sin builds in our lives. Its literally a prison. Then the revelation came - and while many many times I already know the truth in these visions - it becomes crystal clear with pictures. When we repent, in effect, we are causing the wall to deteriorate. We are no longer supporting it, replacing the mortar that falls out, replacing the bricks with more and more sin. We turn away from it, and turn toward God. We don't feed the sin, and you know if you don't eat you deteriorate. We starve sin when we turn away from it, and it loses its ability to captivate us, i.e. capture us. In a sense as the wall that surrounds us comes tumbling down, through our repentance and turning toward God, another wall is being created to protect us... we turn the inside out... our hearts become exposed and that's where God does His work!!! He really works on us from the inside out. He also showed me the impact of sin on prayer. Just as the wall was deteriorating new avenues for answered prayer were opening up. Imagine being in a completely enclosed room, with no doors, or windows just cinder blocks.. no light was able to penetrate. But if you could just get one block knocked out, then light would shine through, fresh air would fill the room and someone could bring you food and water. And more than any of that, in the spiritual, there is an opening for prayers to go up and answers to come down. Our eyes and ears are opened and those things that we could not understand or discern are made known to us. However, when we sin, those portholes, those openings and lines of communication are covered up, cut off, stifled. I don't think the prayer is ever lost, but the answer to those prayers may just be on the other side of repentance. You know? Repentance breaks down the stronghold of sin that has formed a prison around our souls. We must repent and continue repenting. I am sure He could expand so much more on this, but I am thankful He is granting me a repentant heart and helping me along. God bless you all today and all the days to come.

Reconciling Past Wrongs

God has been dealing with me on many things, as many of you know. But one of those things is causing me to remember past wrongs I have committed. It is important for us to go back and make things right and ask those we have committed sins against or treated inappropriately, for forgiveness. For many years, I tried to shun this responsibility by asking God's forgiveness and while He is quick to forgive, we still have to do our part. The enemy wants us to think that just asking for God's forgiveness is all that is needed. Its very easy to ask God when we are alone and no one is around to hear us confess these sins, for His forgiveness. We have nothing to lose...well actually we do, we miss out on tremendous blessings from God. Because its the guilt and shame that keep us down, keeps us from crossing that threshold that confessing our sins one to another provides. We bust the gates of hell wide open when we do this. Because we not only expose the sin, but we expose the guilt and shame and God's light shines in that dark place... never to be dark again. Doing this can be fearful, humiliating, intimidating.... but there is no condemnation from God. But its something we should do. It is a testimony to God's character and as we confess those sins and share with others why we are doing it, God receives glory and honor. So tonight, after many years of feeling guilt and shame, I have written a letter to an old friend. Someone I took from, stole money from. Not because I needed it, in fact I am not even sure why I did it. I have never needed any material thing. I just did it and I have felt bad about it for a long time, then shame and guilt kept me from confessing it. Tomorrow I will mail that letter off, and include with it a check - the amount isn't important, but its what God said I should give, and I know it covers the amount taken plus interest after all this time, and hopefully then some. I do pray I receive forgiveness. But I am confessing that sin and I am hoping that it will make things right, but more than anything I am being obedient to God and I seek no reward from Him for it... if I am the person I want to be in Christ Jesus and the one He says I should be in Him - this action is required. Let us all confess our sins one to another and forgive just as Jesus Christ has forgiven us!!!!
