"Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, One Day at a Time"

Let me tell you when Jesus shows up things happen, he does not just happen to drop in on you…..HE IS UP TO SOMETHING GOOD.

Sharing a Testimony from the  first of this year….

Jesus   The Fragrance of the Lord, is really on my mind today and tonight and I just wanted to share a night I had with the Lord. Maybe some of you should pay close attention as the Lord is showing up in amazing ways we do not always experience nor understand (and in my case were not knowledgeable about) . Someone might be think why does God do things like this, in all honesty I have no answer.

I imagine things like this would confound the Wise though, as the Bible says but to us who know the sweetness of His Presence, we are comforted when we realize Jesus just stepped in our room.

God is God and He does things His way and His was is always best for us. He brings assurance and comfort in many different ways.

My first and only time, so far, of experience the Fragrance of Heaven. I was the first part of this year, I had been layed up with back pain, barely able to walk, and get around the house, the nerve endings in my back were feeling like they were on fire and my right hip was in pain, down to my knee, Sciatic Nerve. I had had back pain for years, but not like this. Many nights I was laying awake and not able to take pain meds, I was praying, as that was all I knew to do. I had been going through a lot of things at that time, I felt like God was doing some pruning, I was sure I needed that, and I was in a time of deep repentance, God was drawing, (He is drawing us in close), and at the same time the war was on!!! This was sometime the end of March I believe. I had been in pain since January, I was seeing a Chiropractor and the Dr took x-rays, nothing they could give to me but maybe a shot in my spine, but I did not want it. (I am sensitive to so many drugs I did not want to take chance of a bad reaction)

One night during that time (if I could find it in my journal I could give you dates) I woke in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom I thought, but as I sat up on the side of the bed and I could smell a Fragrance I had never in my life smelled before. It was beautiful, I just sat there and kept breathing it in trying to figure out where it was coming from. Being half asleep I thought Maybe I left the Scentsy on (that thing you plug it into the wall and put scented wax in it, it smells really good).

I got up and tried to see where the fragrance was coming from I went to the living room and then to the kitchen, I could not find it, so I went to the bathroom and I was not smelling it anymore.

I went back to my bedroom and sat on side of the bed and there it was again, it was only in my room, it was amazing, overwhelming indescribable FRAGRANCE for me. I was normally in a lot of pain night and day, but that night I do not remember having trouble walking or even being in pain. I knew it was the Fragrance of the Lord as I sat there.

Isa 55:9 8″For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. 9″For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.

Romans 11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!
Let me tell you when Jesus shows up things happen, he does not just happen to drop in on you…..HE IS UP TO SOMETHING GOOD.

He is a Good Father. By the end of April  I was doing much better walking, able to go out and walk a mile on many days, I even signed up at the Fitness Center to strengthen my back and muscles. It was all good.

Let me insert this thought as plenty of times Jesus did NOT tangibly show up in my life and yet I was healed or came thru things victoriously. This was just a special night I guess. God knows. I do believe God is revealing Himself in many ways that we may not understand, keep in mind Moses I am sure did not understand the Burning Bush and had no scripture to read?

just felt like sharing hits because if was precious to me. And God is still doing the miraculous things as He did in the Bible and we need to share and be aware that He is and He never stopped……..

YOU ARE THE PLANTING OF THE LORD

planting   As you have sought after My perfect will, trials and tribulations for the past few years have been more than enough.  It has been a time of transition, some pruning and also digging up.  I am removing old teachings, dead stuff that is not relevant to your life, pulling up and removing some thinking processes and throwing them away, these were not of Me.   Sometimes many of you have felt  rather at loose ends.  Nothing by any means seems to be working for  your good it seems.  Even though all of the pieces do not seem to fit together right now, they are coming together and they will fit precisely as I have intended.  Your life has been coming together piece by piece, over time  as you have been trusting in Me day by day and hour by hour.  I like that you, My children,  are willingly waiting and are not complaining.

I am pleased with you.  I am pouring out the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, that YOU might be called trees of righteousness, you are the planting of the Lord.  Healing comes, My children.  You have prayed and thought, “why doesn’t  it come now”, “Why such a delay”?  My timing is perfect and you will come to know and understand this in a new way.  Nothing ever happens that I am not aware of, the trials, the troubles, the heartaches, the tears in the past few years.  Yet not one tear has fallen without My knowledge, not one heartache without Me seeing…I am here.  It is in this place of brokenness that there is great growth and ministries are birthed.  Ministry is being birthed in a way that many of you have not known nor realized in the past   There is new growth, new happenings of suddenlies in your lives.  Watch and see!   What is on the horizon for you is greater than you could have ever conceived.

You have sought the Lord in the darkest of hours and have been tired and weary, not understanding at times which way to turn.  As many have become upset and frustrated, it is time to trust and rest in Me.  At those moments you have been like Peter and have taken your eyes off of Me.  You have looked on the storms of life.  It was at these times you have wavered but I was there to steady your steps and stand by your side, and strengthen you.

Get ready for a new season, new joy, new hope and new vision.  The time is right.   This is the time I am reviving everything that pertains to My children.  There are great and precious promises yet to come forth, in due season.  This is the time for new beginnings, newness of life and fullness of life, fullness of joy.  Newness, nothing like you have seen in years gone by.  Get ready for your biggest blessing and revelations.  These things you have asked of Me, are on the horizon.  Precious children, I am bringing to the forefront not to be seen of men, but to be a carrier of the Glory.  This is a time when My children are carrying the glory for they have not been self-seeking and covetous.  They have sought to love and giving, giving of the giving of your lives…..  Take on My nature in its fullness.   Rejoice!  This is a season of new things.  Old things have passed away and all things have become new!.

The Lord says this Day and this Hour it is just for YOU!!!  This Generation will take the spoils!  Are you ready!  Prepare yourselves for the time coming upon the earth, when everything shaking at the very foundations, this is just the beginning of what is to come.!!!  Amen and Amen

Prophetic Insight…….Sept 21, 2015

I have called you to walk in deep waters and I have made you strong enough to stand in those waters without wavering. I am your strength. When you are weak, then are you strong. You know how to stand in the strength of My word. I have taught you these things and instilled within you a perseverance that says, “I will never give up”. I have instructed you in My ways and you have followed My ways. My blessings will follow you all the days of your life and I will keep My covenant with you as I have promised in My word. I will never leave you nor forsake you. My strength will be yours always. I am your God and you are My children. As we walk together and we talk together daily, I am training you to be warriors of the faith. Many trials, tribulations and temptations you have been through because of your testimony of Me. Rejoice, My children! You have stood your ground and you have humbled yourself before Me many times. I am the “lifter” of your head. I am the words of encouragement to you every day.

Daniel 10:12-13 CHILDREN OF GOD……..help is on the way

12 Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. 13 But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia.

YOUR CRIES ARE PULLING ON THE NEXT GREAT MOVE OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD……

Just as your children trust you, how much greater should you trust Me, the Creator of the entire Universe.  I hear your every prayer, I know your every thought and I see the cry of your hearts.  I, the Lord, know all things.  when you sit down and when you rise, I know your thoughts even when I’m far away,  and I love you.  I admonish you to trust and be at peace.  I am with you every step of the way through every trial you have faced and every adversity you will face in the future.

As you have traveled this road and faced your bumps in the road and even a pit or two I was there.  As you have walked through the valleys and climbed upon the mountain, I have never failed you.   Even now I tell you, great and mighty blessings are coming forth in the midst of the trauma of the times and seasons of  chaos around you Beloved! You are living in the times many, have desired to live in and see”.  None of your prayers have been in vain, I have heard each and every cry, each and every tender heart I have seen.

I have heard your cries entering My ears as a sweet incense to Me,  your arms lifted in praise have drawn My gaze towards you, and YOUR CRIES ARE PULLING ON THE NEXT GREAT  MOVE OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD IN THE EARTH THAT HAS BEEN SET IN MOTION FOR “ALL WILL” EXPERIENCE MY KINGDOM COME!!!  You have not seen but have yearned to see. You have been in preparation for this.  I have directed you to PREPARE My children, to FEED My sheep!  Continue to prepare them for shortly the Glory will be more than some are prepared for.

Prepare, prepare and wait patiently!  Openly accept all that I have for you.  Let Me warn you that many will not understand the leading of My Spirit in this hour.  Follow Me!  Do not look back to the past, do not look back those who do not want to follow closely.  There are many who would stand afar off and many will even deny Me in the coming hours.  “Pray for one another”!

Prepare yourself for these times.  I do nothing that I do not tell My prophets first.  Be diligent!  Follow closely! Look for and listen for My leading intently. I am always speaking,  though My children are not always listening.  Do not be one who does not listen but keep your ear turned towards Me at all times.  I will commune with you and you with Me.  I say, “Peace, be still!  Do not walk in fear!  TRUST!   Rest in Me!”   Amen and Amen

KNOW THAT THIS TOO SHALL PASS!!! I HAVE GIVEN YOU POWER!

this too shall pass 8   The prince of this world comes and is already at work in the world.  He has nothing in Me says the Lord.  As you walk with Me and as you follow Me, the wicked one has nothing in you, for you are Mine.  The spirit of religion is empowered by the principalities of the power of the air, the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  I have known the conflict you have faced, you have never been alone.  The battle is mine.  I know the troubles you have faced in this past season, many being, troubled and torn, tired and weary.  Rise up and walk says the Lord, for when you are weak than are you strong.

[2 Thess. 2  Don’t you remember that I told you about all this when I was with you? And you know what is holding him back, for he can be revealed only when his time comes. For this lawlessness is already at work secretly, and it will remain secret until the one who is holding it back steps out of the way. Then the man of lawlessness will be revealed, but the Lord Jesus will kill him with the breath of his mouth and destroy him by the splendor of his comingThis man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them. So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies. Then they will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the truth.]

You are the citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven, just pilgrims passing through this world,  pressing towards the promised land.   And in this place called the wilderness, called the desert, called the valley, called temptation, called persecution, called the fire,  KNOW THAT THIS TOO SHALL PASS.  As you, My children are passing through not having any unction from the Holy One to be a part of this world, but totally set apart unto Me, you are in this world, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you will walk among the snakes and the scorpions, the death and the destruction of this world; and crush all ungodliness, and evil under your feet, and nothing will by any means hurt you says the Lord.

Drink of My peace. All has seemed futile to you at times, and many thought there would be no way out of the fiery trials and troubles in this last hour, they wearied themselves with the thought of saving their own lives, and many forgot about others, fallen and weary also.  Many hearts have sunk into hopelessness and into despair, be not weary My children in this season, for it is the enemy’s plan to wear you out, “GREATER is He that is in you than he that is in this world”.  You have endured many trials and many of you have come to the point of death and great loss even as My righteous servant Job.  Many  have looked at you and said, “why don’t you just give up”?   Where is your God?

Though many have turned aside from My word, and taken other roads, and followed the way of other gods, including the god of “self”.  Many have chosen the way of deception even to becoming blind to My word, and My ways and many are NOT any longer walking according to truth, but have yielded to the ways and the games of this very present world.  Many having turned to spiritual adultery, environments of the world and deadly doctrines of devils.  Cling to your faith in Christ, and keep your conscience clear. For some people have deliberately violated their consciences; as a result, their faith has been shipwrecked.
But listen.  Though many have mocked you, rejected you and attempted to destroy you, be still, be quiet and know that I am with you always.  The religious of the day, the Scribes and the Pharisees, Sadducees, they betrayed Me, know this one thing the servant is not greater than his Master, nor is the messenger more important than the one who sends the message.

Dearly beloved, recive My peace.  As those around you have looked upon your life and watched you as many of you have walked through your own “Garden of Gethsemane”, and as you steadfastly held onto your faith and integrity as My children, and as you persevered through it all, the unbelieving  have been  astonished at how this could be.  With sweat dripping from your brow and blood running down your face they looked upon you and laughed even as they did to Me.  But when they saw you had been emptied out of yourself and filled afresh and anew with greater faith, greater love, with greater power, they that have not believed have been astonished at the Grace that was bestowed upon you all.  Rejoice My children for eye has not seen nor ear has heard what great things God has prepared for those that love Him.  Look up for your redemption draws nigh.

DO NOT PANIC, BUT PRAY, OBEY AND BELIEVE ……

nothing can seperate   I hear the Lord say “If God be for you who then can be against you”.   Though this has been a rough season the Lord says I am not slow in My  promise, as some count slowness, but am patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. But do remember  that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day.
I heard these scriptures and wondered what the Lord is telling all of us actually, because the whole Body seems to be travailing before the Lord in prayer and seeking.
Even as the Lord said recently He is releasing warrior angels from  the heavenly realm and they are being released to help us war and even to help hold our arms up in this hour.  The battle has been intense but the Lord says remember who is the Captain of the Lords Armies, and look to Him for though the battles has been severe, it has already been won.
If My children keep their focus on victory, and know that victory is theirs.  Father says I have released a host to help in this time, do not despair and do not fear I have never left you alone,  I have never not met your needs.  Rather than rest in Me, so many times My children, even as My disciples in the ship, in the midst of the storm, they screamed out in pain about perishing, yet I the Lord have given them the ability to walk on water.
In this time My Bride herself is being filled up and tuned up for the final battles on earth,  Jeremiah 12:5 “If you have raced with men on foot, and they have wearied you, how will you compete with horses? And if in a safe land you are so trusting, what will you do in the thicket of the Jordan?
The Lord says I want your hearts to be so seasoned with love and reassured that no matter what you are facing, you know where your help comes from and  you do not panic, but pray, obey and believe.  I am there, and while in this body of flesh you will suffer, I have  overcome it all, once and for all.
In this hour everything that can be shaken is being shaken, in Heaven and all of Hell is shaking, the earth is groaning in travail for the Armies of God are about to come forth in this hour, Arise and Shine.  Praise and Pray no matter what you are feeling, for every knee will bow and every tongue will confess, I am Lord, to the Glory of God!  For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.  For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.
Phil 2:10  God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,  and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Amen and Amen

A Post from Facebook, A must Read and Remember Post

Ryan LeStrange, Not sure if Ryan is on Word Press…but this needs to be heard…..

TO BREAK AN ATTACK YOU MUST DISCERN IT:
When the enemy launches a spiritual attack against you he wants you to fail! He is determined to drag you out of the realm of the spirit and into the realm of the flesh where he can devour you. He works overtime to dull your spiritual senses and cause you to be blinded to his schemes. Satan wants to blind the eyes to what is really going on! Part of his scheme is to “naturalize” an attack and keep a person ignorant of the truth.

2 Cor. 2:11- Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

Discerning the attack is the open door to breaking free! You first see what is happening and then you arise in faith to defeat it.

Keys to discern the attack:
*Must get out of sense realm- sight, touch, feel. Dwelling in the sense realm above the spirit realm paralyzes faith and blocks spiritual revelation.
*Spiritual insight/vision- the realm of spiritual sight unlocks and opens up discernment! The believer has eyes to see.
*Revelation- every born again person has access to divine revelation in the word and spirit. Releasing the spirit of revelation equips you for victory.
*Prophetic Ministry-prophets and prophetic people often identify false spirits and issue warnings, words of knowledge and breakthrough anointing for freedom from attacks. We will explore this in scripture and also provide practical insight along with actual stories.

Pray ye one for another, hold each Love you guys out there in WordPress land….Blessings Gail
