Good Friday Encouragement

This morning of Good Friday, I normally have off from my job, as our employer offers that day as a paid Holiday day off.     Due to the enormous amount of workload our department has been facing lately,  I realized that though I would much prefer to kick my shoes off and take it easy  instead of  having to drag myself to work on a paid Holiday, I knew that the Lord was extending to me this opportunity to think of others besides my own comfort level.     To pick up my cross for Him, even in my every day job..  Working this Friday as well as tomorrow to help get the extra work load out before Monday is not something my flesh enjoys doing.   It is very tiring and physically demanding,  and in my job, I am on my feet constantly with swollen ankles;   There are no chairs provided where I work so that the production work will get out faster.

This Friday I was planning on taking advantage of my “day off” and sleeping in, enjoying my “free day” off from work.,    until I saw how slammed we were with extra accounts that my company suddenly acquired, meaning a much more heavier workflow than we formerly had.     Many of my coworkers will not pick up the slack..   refusing to give up their long weekends… but the Lord was asking me to do my part.

I was reminded by Him that in our Easter feasting,  our Easter Egg hunts, and our shopping sprees for this years’ new Sunday outfit , that we lose sight of what and Who Easter truly represents. .       Easter was actually   never called “Easter” in the first place, but should be called ‘Ressurection Day”,  as the word “Easter” is derived from “Ishtar”… a Babylonian god of fertility.   That somehow got mixed in with the Christian aspects of this period  throughout the ages., and has contributed in causing us to lose sight of Jesus Christ.        Lent, Maunday Thursday, Good Friday, and Ressurection Sunday were intended to commerate what our Lord, Jesus Christ endured for us..the Price He was willing to pay to purchase us with His blood..     to allow His body to be broken and to suffer unimaginable suffering so that we could be saved.. and to show us the way back to His.. and through Him , OUR Heavenly Father.       It is a “holiday” that should teach us the value of The Cross..  the value of picking up our cross daily to follow Him., to share in His sufferings.   And did our Lord ever suffer!    His cross was more than the cross He was nailed to ,  but His cross started the day He was born, and He carried it each time He toiled in the carpenter shop,  or  travelled hungry on the dry dusty roads from village to village..   His was a thankless solitary life on this Earth, but He willingly embraced His cross.. for love of the Father and love for us all to the end of time.

With this perspective in mind,  it is not possible for me to whine and complain that I am giving up a Good Friday to “pick up my cross”.. however tiny it is compared to our Lord’s greater Cup He drank from.    To share with our Lord this little cross of labor with Him, so that I can then share with Him in His resurrection.

Before heading off to work this Good Friday morning, I felt the Holy Spirit lead me to open Clare’s website, http://ourladylightofthewoods.org/index.php?pool=11   for a message He wanted me to have this day.. before I head off to work with Him.      Opening that website, generated an automatic message for that day, and this is what I opened to !

No More Fear After Binding Prayer

Isaiah-40-31-

Bless you Clare for all the hard work you put into your videos.

I have been listening to you for about 6 months now and have never written a comment but I have to tell you that I started using the binding prayer one week ago every morning just before going into work. I started a new job about one month ago working with severely mentally and physically disabled children about 15 to 20 years old.  I am a nurse. Jobs are hard to find where I live and I had to take it.

After the third week of work, I was crying every morning that I had to go. So every day just before I went into work this past week, I would say the binding prayer. I admit that I still want to find another job, but I have no more fear or anxiety when I go into work now. I just offer the job up to the Lord.

That prayer is so powerful. Thank you so much for the prayer and this revised version. I’m going to start including my family in it too.

cosmic-conflict-GoodSalt-lwjas0040

THIS IS MY PERSONAL TESTIMONY THAT MY LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST (YASUHUA HA MASHIOCK ) THE HOLY SPIRIT (RUACH HA KODESH) AND GOD THE FATHER (JAHOVIAH ELOHIM) THE 3 WHO BEARS WITNESS IN HEAVEN HAS MANIFESTED THEIR PRESENCE UPON ME AND RAISED FROM DEATH (SIN) TO LIFE (THE GLORIOUS PRESENCE OF GOD):

SOMEONE I KNEW SLANDERED MY NAME AND I FELT WOUNDED HURT AND WAS ANGERED IN MY SPIRIT. THAT TRIUMPHANT DAY BEFORE I WENT TO BED I PRAYED , GOD IF I AM AT FAULT AND WRONGED THIS PERSON I AM GOING TO ASKED HIM TO FORGIVE ME. I TRIED TO SLEEP BUT COULD NOT SLEEP , I WAS RESTLESS AND TROUBLED IN MY SPIRIT , THEN SUDDENLY MY BODY STARTED SHAKING VIOLENTLY .(AT FIRST I THOUGHT I MIGHT BE DYING) THEN MY SPIRIT CAME OUT OF MY BODY AND I FOUND MYSELF RASSLING WITH SATAN , (YES SATAN) AND I THROW SATAN THROUGH MY ROOM WINDOW THEN I HEARD A VOICE SAY: “HE IS NOT DEFEATED YET , HE IS FREE TO ROAM SOMEWHERE ELSE UNTIL  HIS TIME HAS COME” .

THAT WAS (THE) TRIUMPHANT DAY WHEN JESUS RAISED ME UP FROM OUT OF (DARKNESS) ONTO LIGHT (LIFE) I WAS (DEAD) NOW I AM (ALIVE) . GET BEHIND ME (SATAN) YOU ARE ALREADY DEFEATED. ALL HONOUR , PRAISE GLORY AND DOMINION BE ONTO JESUS CHRIST KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS THE ALPA AND OMEGA WHO REIGNS FROM AGES TO AGES AMEN AND AMEN

Time on the Road For Prayer Intercession

890567

I want to share this:

While driving home from work, I have started praying the divine mercy chaplet, but since I don’t remember it all, I say the Lord’s Prayer part of it, and repeat: “For the sake of His sorrowful mercy, have mercy on us and on the whole world”. Even if I don’t feel anything, I repeat it over and over. (Some would call this mindless and “vain repetition”, but it is only mindless until the Spirit takes over, which He does after a few minutes.) So I was repeating that line over and over, and remembering the message from the other day that said people in Europe are coming to Christ during this time, I kept thinking about them while repeating that one line. In my mind, I saw CROWDS of people SO desperate to escape that they were almost climbing on top of each other, reaching upward from darkness into the light. Their raised hands actually pushed an opening into the “ceiling” of the sky, breaking open a piece so light could shine through, if that makes sense.) And while repeating that line from the chaplet, I felt like saying it…  AS IF I WERE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE in Europe trying to escape, praying on their behalf. And I really believe the Holy Spirit used me to intercede for them, although only for a few minutes.

I wish I had started doing that all along, but I guess I was waiting to FEEL something BEFORE I did. So what I am trying to say is this: if we open our mouths out of obedience and start reciting, whether we feel anything or not, God CAN use it. Why should I use my half-hour drive home from work to only listen to the radio when I can intercede on behalf of those who are TRULY hungry for God? Just something to think about during the short time we have left down here. I almost didn’t share this, but I decided to because those people in Europe seemed SO desperate.

God bless you, family, Carl

Standing In the Gap for His Lost Ones

d5238c2b0bd1e23cc08ea5601e01a82b
I just had an amazing prayer session…the Lord is leading me to tell you, cuz I think He wants it passed on…only because others may be “asked” or offered the opportunity to join such an “event.”
I admit to being quite lost these days as to what to pray for….do I try to get closer to the Lord, hoping that by doing so, I will be a more effective tool to help others? Or is it more selfish desires that motivate me? Or do I pray for “the rest of the world?” Well, I prayed the DIVINE MERCY CHAPLET this afternoon, at 3 pm,  but then, the Father told me that the gates of Mercy were already closed to many. ALREADY CLOSED! WOW! He said the same thing yesterday, too, and Yeshua confirmed it. I felt such grief, but Father then told me that there were still some that the door was “open a crack” for (I’m paraphrasing here, lol)…I told Him that as long as there was even one soul out there, I would continue to pray…until He told me that there were no more to save.
Well, as I often do, I asked Holy Spirit this evening to lead and to pray for whatever He felt most needed to be said…and that I would give utterance.
This time, I was praying in tongues, and I soon found myself at the Abyss, alone, at the edge. I began praying, and it was hot and ugly! But, strangely, I was startled but unafraid. I continued praying, and I noticed that there were uncountable numbers of people just going over the edge, on either side of me! OMG!
But, as I began praying, they slowed and stopped. I tried to lift them ALL up, but there were oceans of people! Masses of people! The best that I could do was lift them up a bit and hold them still. Then, I noticed that others began to join me, “on the line,” at the edge of the Abyss. As I prayed, I could hear THEM praying, too! Our numbers grew, until it looked like we formed one solid line of human fence, holding hands and praying, calmly, and unafraid. We blocked the entire edge of the Abyss! 🙂
We continued praying in tongues, and I heard Father ask, “Do you stand in the gap for these children?” We all answered, “We do!”  Demons came and slashed at us, but we never moved and never stopped praying. Any cut or wound was instantly healed! And, finally, they just — poof! — disappeared!
We kept praying for some time, and then I heard Father say something like, “I will take them now.” Or something like that. I admit, I was a bit “caught up” in all of this, and I might be paraphrasing that last sentence a bit. I’m just not certain, but you get the idea.
I asked Holy Spirit to pray for what He felt most needed to be said…and those children who still have a chance to return home have been on my heart….and the next thing I know, I am standing in the gap for them….at first, I was alone…but within minutes, there was a solid fence of true believers with me, holding hands, and calmly blocking them from going into the Abyss…until Father accepted them. I think that I saw Yeshua next to Him, but, I admit, I was focused on the others praying, and on those trying to go over the edge….so I am not quite certain who said that last line — Father or Yeshua.
But I think that we are being told that we still have the opportunity to “stand in the gap” for MANY! Not just our family members, friends, loved ones, etc….but all of those souls that we DON’T know! We can still do it! We can still pray for them and join this line! I KNOW in my spirit that those who joined me on that prayer line/fence were also truly praying, at that time!

War Drums Beating in Heaven

warrior-angel-527

 

“..I had a vision, twice, in the last couple of months, of me at age 25, standing in a meadow, dressed in a warrior tunic, with a cape on, sandals, and a spear. Behind me was a large angel. I was in a meadow, looking up at hills and mountains. I would cry out in a loud voice, in a spiritual language, and would thump the spear to the ground every time I did that. I was sounding a war-cry, a declaration for our Lord, but I knew not what. I think I know now.

God and my Dance Prayer for the 4 Corners of the Earth

7b07f366f7d13227de87f6b3e2714ea0 Hi all, While watching Still Small Voice’s, “Your Very Own Gift of Worship” Video on You Tube, I was reminded this morning of an experience the Lord gave me around 2009, 2010 one Winter Evening.   As we see,  our Earth is going through such an assault from mankind’s abuse and greed..   abusive and uncontrolled  drilling for oil in areas that drilling should not be permitted;  mountain-top removal of once beautiful mountains with wildlife habitat areas forever destroyed by dynamite … just to obtain a few years of coal;  oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico; the Fukashima nuclear disaster in Japan, etc..        God sees more tragedy in His Creation than we are even aware of.     We don’t know the tears God sheds because , Yes, He DOES love not only we humans, but ALL Life created by Him. He hates seeing even animals suffer due to mankind, man..whom He created to serve and love Him in many ways.  One of our many roles was to be His stewards for All of Creation we coexist with.  Thankfully, there are a few souls who have have allowed the Holy Spirit to touch their hearts and minister to the hurting animals in oil spills,  as well as working with Him in restoring devastated wild places caused by man’s greed.    You will see many whose hearts He has touched, picking up garbage along roadsides,  feeding wild birds , leaving out critter food for the small animals during harsh Winters, etc., assisting hurting animals in oil spills, etc..   It is a labor of Love for Him.. for His defenseless ones who are at our mercy.. Well, one night I was listening to my Native American song CD’s made by Native Americans … the traditional songs are sung from the heart to the Great Spirit…        I always have a love for the Native American people to begin with.   I was so incredibly inspired that night to sing along with the singers of that CD., and dance the way the Native American people dance when they worship God..     I sang along with the language of the Native American singer, and stomped my feet on the floor while turning in all four directions.. to the four corners of the Earth praying for each type of wild animals living throughout the entire Earth..    The North, South, East and West.    I visualized myself before the Great Spirit (God) dressed in Native American clothing and boots,  .. a Native American child, dancing and singing in prayer before her Creator for the welfare and protection of all Creation.      I cried while I sang too..  I wanted sooo much for God to hear me! After my dance for Him, I felt Someone standing near the closet in my bedroom, smiling at me with loving amusement, but definitely stemming from Love and delight in my “prayer”.      Rationalizing this, I assumed it was , perhaps a young Native American man who had died along time ago, observing my “ceremony” for God. “Maybe it was someone I knew from a past life” I imagined.. It was only a few years later that our Lord revealed to me (without words.. but just a “knowing”) that it was HIM standing there listening to me, and He loved my dance prayer.   He was standing by my closet because in the scriptures, He refers to us praying intimately with Him as “entering into our closets” in prayer…. our “Prayer Closets”.       It was in that very closet some years later while looking for a necklace to wear , my eyes fell on one that has “Be Mine” written on the charm.    With my eyes on it, in my heart  I heard Jesus say in the most beautiful way that smote me to the core– “Be Mine”  ..    and I realized just why the disciples dropped everything to follow Him when He told them, “Follow Me”.   With that tone of His.. that penetrating look of His into their eyes… wow!! So if you’re Native American, dear brother and sister…. yes, our Great Spirit is hearing your dance prayers.. He loves your dances for Him..   and He wants ALL mankind to become His-  from the North, The South, the East and the West♥ editors note.. while editing the punctuation on this journal entry, on my  mother’s radio downstairs, there is a Country song playing, called, “I just want to dance with you”.  😀
