We know that Jesus tore the veil separating us from the holy of holies when He died on the cross.  Do we realize that Jesus has already restored us back to the place we were at (spiritually) in the Garden of Eden?

As we long for this place again, we must come to the realization that we have already been restored and have access back into the garden where initial fellowship with God began.  We call out, “Take us back to the garden God!” without realizing again, the veil was torn.  We continually fall into a place of dissatisfaction because without realizing it, Jesus is no longer our focus.  Taking His place is our desires for power, glory and wisdom among other things He gives (Ephesians 1:4).


Without realizing it, we dishonor Jesus.  We use Him for power, glory and wisdom instead of seeking a relationship with Him. The church has come to a place of using the body of Jesus Christ instead of giving Jesus the adoration and love He deserves foremost. 
We are living in a time where we have fallen into a place like that of Simon the sorcerer who desired power instead of a relationship with Jesus.  This is where the body of Christ is today “Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual and demonic/of the devil.  For where you have envy and selfish ambition there you find disorder and every evil practice (James 3:15-16 NIV)

We need not go back to the place of our creation before the foundations of the earth where we were with God.  We should not desire to go back to a place that was tainted by sin in the heavens (Ezekiel 28:15 NIV).  We have a place being prepared for us who are not of this world (Hebrews 11:13-16 NIV). “Instead, they were longing for a better country-a heavenly one.  Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.” (Hebrews 11:16 NIV)

Jesus Sanctified Himself to do the Father’s will.  Are we so audacious to think we truly know our Father’s will without a relationship with Jesus Christ Himself?  It was Jesus who sanctified Himself to do the Father’s will so that we too may be sanctified in His Truth (John 17:19 NIV).  If Jesus sought out our Father’s will in relationship what makes us think we don’t have to?  What makes us think that we are entitled to that which was made through intimacy? (See Philippians 2:5-8)  Jesus desires for you to know the truth and nothing but the Truth.

Jesus, lead the humble in justice and teach the humble your ways. (Psalm 25:9 NIV)

We are not here to win the approval of men, but approval from God.  We are also not here to try to please, get attention or gain favor from men.  For if we are still trying to please men then we would not be a servant of Christ. (Galatians 1:10 NIV)

The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God

(Galatians 5:19-21 NIV)

Let us all humble ourselves today and come as the tax collector who beat his breast and said, “God have mercy on me, a sinner!” 

As we remember Jesus dying on the cross, descending into hell for us and His resurrection from the dead, may we focus on the One, Jesus Christ, our Savior, our redeemer and our soon coming King!  He IS the lover of our souls, the fulfillment of our heart’s desires and the very reason why we live and have our being here on this earth.

HE IS ALIVE, ALIVE, ALIVE!!!!!!!

He is alive and waiting to meet you so let us look forward, fix our eyes on the author and finisher of our faith who HAS gone ahead to prepare the new heavens and the new earth for us!  So let us set our hearts and minds on things above, not on earthly things.

But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness (2Peter 3:13 NIV).

FEBRUARY 2019

There is defilement in the body of Christ.  When Ezekiel went into the temple of the Lord in the spirit there was a secret place within the temple where idols and other things were being released that were not of God.  Similar to Ezekiel’s findings, there are places within the inner most being of our souls that are bringing defilement to the Lord’s temple and to the body of Christ as a whole.

There are many defilements but pride, division, and twisting of scripture are just a few.  We are being dismembered and separated from each other BY each other. We are literally sacrificing ourselves (as part of the body) to be the highest bidder, the best speaker, the best soul sinner.  

An example is when Israel went to war with Moab.  Israel had conquered most of the Moab territory but the king of Moab saw that the battle had gone against him so he gathered 700 swordsmen to get to the king of Israel but they all were defeated.  The king of Moab knew that the only way for him to win was to sacrifice his son. He knew that sacrificing his son would win the war. This is what the unplowed soil of our souls is doing within the body of Christ.  We are sacrificing and dismembering our body (brothers, sisters, sons and daughter) to win and be above them for our own selfish ambition (without realizing it). We ARE the temple of God and He does care what is happening in the hidden, secret places of our souls.

This comes from deep within our soul that has been left unplowed that causes us to feel as though we are or desire to be more important than the rest of the body.  Demonic activity is everywhere trying to pull everyone apart from each other. And in doing this, we are dismembering and separated from each other, BY each other and we don’t even realize it.

It is not Satan and demons alone that are dismembering us.  It is the unplowed soil of our soul. We allow it to happen which is the defilement of the temple, which is you, which is of course, the body, which is of course God’s temple.

Many things must be allowed to die as the dismemberment continues.  BUT as we die to our own works, the light exposes all of the darkness.  In doing this, it is like a seed planting into the soil.

After the death of what was exposed in the awakening of the defilement, the Light will come forth.  The defilement in the temple that is not of God WILL DIE. It will die with a purpose of bringing forth light.  First the exposure and then Life comes. At this point, you will turn back to Jesus’ heart in ways you never knew were possible.

The soil will begin to be plowed.  What was meant for our destruction will result in God being exalted so true life and growth can happen.

Jeremiah 4:1-12, 1 Corinthians 6:16-20, Ezekial 8:7-12, 2 Kings 3:24-27, 1 Corinthians 12:12-27

There are foundational changes coming and there is a shaking in the earth right now in our fallow ground in the soil of people’s souls.  This shaking is a good way to get you focused back on Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith. Revelation doesn’t save you. Only Jesus does.

Foundational changes within the soil of our soul are taking place in areas that have been crusted over (as in a desert).  The ground has no access to be fed by water, sun or oxygen. The shaking is good. It brings forth life and breath.

There will be a period of time where you will have reached a certain level of depth within the soil and you will feel tired of plowing through the hard crusts of your soul and you will want to stop.  If you don’t think you can go anymore, if you are tired, let God take you to that next level of glory so everything can continually move forward. You do not want a partial shaking. You want your entire soul to be shaken.  Do not stop too early. You want your whole soul, the whole ground. You don’t want to leave any part out.

During this shaking, there will be great warfare.  Your own soul/flesh will fight against your own spirit (or soul and flesh-whatever your belief is on this).  When you are struggling to stay the course of the shaking and realizations you didn’t see before, it’s going to feel and look different than your soul has ever felt like before.  

Within the souls of man, there will be a light that shines and pierces the darkness within that we have not experienced before.  The warfare is from within and it is shedding light in places that have been dark (in the secrets places of your heart) that you want to know about.

The little foxes that get in per SS 2:15.  They make holes in the ground and the foxes are hiding in those little holes.  They hide there. The fox holes destroy the integrity of the ground. It’s time to put those little thing away.  Put them out.

The LIGHT EXPOSES the foxes.

Hosea 10:12, Jeremiah 4:3

Song of Songs 2:15 “You must catch the troubling foxes,those sly little foxes that hinder our relationship.For they raid our budding vineyard of love to ruin what I’ve planted within you.Will you catch them and remove them for me? We will do it together.”

The result of this season will produce a harvest in the souls of man.  There will be no hidden places in the recesses of your heart and Jesus will be placed in the right position in your life.  Jesus will illuminate His light that will proceed from the foundation of your heart and will give light to the soil so all things planted in the soil of our souls will produce a harvest of Love and exaltation to the Lord.  Everything that once was is no more, and everything that proceeds from Jesus is being brought to life, planted and reborn.

There is something about exaltation that is missing in many ways in the body and we are coming into a place of exalting the worthiness of Jesus.  Exaltation is coming back to the body of Christ (the entire church). The more we exalt Jesus, the more people will begin to exalt Jesus. Jesus will come in and HE is the foundation of that which is coming forth.

As this happens, the body of Christ will come together under one mind, one spirit, one body in exaltation to the Lord together.  For the Lord will rightly have His place in His temple (you).

Through the refining of our soul the light of Jesus Christ will bring light to the world.

It’s just as is written in 1Th 5:4-5,  “But you, believers, are not in spiritual darkness [nor held by its power], that the day [of judgment] would overtake you [by surprise] like a thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We do not belong to the night nor to darkness

Jeremiah 24:6-7, John 8:12, Philippians 2:2-4, Ephesians 4:1-5, Matthew 22:37-39, John 12:35-36
