TIME JUMPED BACKWARDS TWO HOURS

time

 

A few nights ago I got up and walked to the bathroom, past my digital clock which said it was 3 a.m.  When I went back to bed, I rolled onto my side where I noticed through the window that the motion light was shining on the fence outside.  And the clock now said 1 a.m!

I stared at the clock incredulously.  Since it’s a digital clock which displays the number one as a straight line, it’s highly improbable that I could mistake that straight line for a number three.

And what critter was on my property that caused the motion light to turn on?  There are a few feral cats in the neighborhood so, I didn’t think much about this detail.

For the last few days, I’ve asked Father what this meant and He has reminded me of several other unexplainable events in my life.  I had not pursued those answers.  Now I wanted to.

As a result, my perspective changed and I began thinking in terms of less mystery and more practical need.  Now I could ask the question differently.  “What was the circumstance that required time to go backward and the motion light to come on?”

Almost immediately the scenario played out on my imagination screen.

The Angels that live with us here were simply protecting us from an intruder that needed to leave.

A couple days ago, we received a reverse 911 call that a big cat had been spotted in the vicinity and everyone should be extra vigilant with pets.

Mountain lions and other wild cats rarely come down here and yet we live in close proximity.  So we advised our daughter about going outside especially at night, without first triggering one of our many motion lights around the property.

But I didn’t connect the two situations until I asked the right question.

Now I could see the big cat come onto our property and climb a tree near our bedroom.  Coming in from a southwest direction would not trigger the motion light in that section.  Then the cat made itself comfortable on a limb above and settled in for the hunt.

But our Angels saw the danger and determined the quickest way to roust him away.  It was to turn time back to 1 a.m. when he first walked onto the property.  Then they triggered the lights at that moment to startle him.  That would make him nervous enough to move on down the road rather than settling in our tree.

I don’t have any proof that this is what happened.  But my heart is calm.  I know we are protected and I’ve seen proof of that before.

How does time turn back?  I don’t know.  It’s a scientific principle beyond my understanding.  But I don’t discount it simply because I don’t know how it works.  I know it does, and I know my Angels understand it, and my Father who’s Spirit lives inside me knows.

The whole situation was not as mysterious as I thought.  My Father simply loves me.

Thank you for sharing my journey.  Blessings on yours.

I TOUCHED HER WITH HEALING

 

healing hands

 

It was that moment after her healing when she was thanking me for it. Her eyes were wide as she said, “You are GOOD” in an almost whisper.  Then she asked, “How did you learn to do that?”  And that was the moment.

I had a choice to make.  I could deflect her praise by using a kind of false humility and say, “It wasn’t me, it was God.”  Or I could say it the way it really is.

So, I said, “We can all do this.  It’s God, yes, and He is inside us.  If only we realize who we really are.  We are the only creation He made to follow Him and walk in His image.  And Jesus didn’t beg.  He spoke to it.”

She smiled, nodded her head, almost to herself, and then walked away from me.

During the remainder of the evening, she worked hard.  And she never winced again with the pain.  She had no pain.

But earlier, the excruciating pain twisted her face and she rubbed her shoulder over and over, to no avail.  I watched as she struggled.  And I waited to see if she overcame it on her own.

I asked, “What about the surgery last week?  Didn’t it fix the problem?”  And she said, “It might not have any effect for a couple months.”  Then my heart broke for her.  Her previous pain had only been exacerbated by the cure.

She’d been so sure the surgery would work.  And she never wanted to talk about healing or alternatives.  So I was sure she wouldn’t receive my touch.

But after the torment continued for 30-45 minutes, it was obvious that she was desperate.  She was losing control, about to capitulate, give up, and go home.  And there, the pain would torment her all night.

Finally, I said, “Would you like me to speak to your pain?”

And in desperation, she said, “Yes.  Anything. I don’t care what you do!”

So I gently put my hands on her shoulders and began telling the pain that it must leave.  I instructed the muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints to return to their originally created vibrations of perfect alignment and complete healing.

With wide-eyes, she said, “It’s almost gone!”

“Almost?  You still feel some? Then let’s do it again.” I answered and laid my hands on her shoulders again, repeating the words I said before.

With the pain gone, she happily and eagerly attacked her work chores.  And I smiled as I watched.

This is love, the kind Jesus shared.  This is fulfillment and satisfaction, to have compassion and share healing.  More than ever, I know He and I are one.  Like a hybrid, there is no beginning or end of me, as there is no beginning or end of Him.  We are me.  You and I are Him.

I touched her with healing.

Thank you for sharing my journey.  Many blessings on yours.

SABBATICAL FROM THE BATTLE

sabbatical

 

 

I had a dream about the aftermath of my battle with religion.

I was in an abandoned section of the house where I live. It was like an attached apartment. In the kitchen was a lot of canned and packaged food sitting on a big table inside the oversized pantry. A visitor came through, someone I knew, and he needed dinner for his family. I invited him to help himself and he chose 3 items that would make a complete meal for him and his family. He was pleased and I was happy that I could be generous.

After he left, I began going through the apartment shadow boxing evil entities as I saw them. I’d say out loud “Ka-pow! Ka-pow!” as I punched them. And they were cleared out one at a time. After they were gone, there was movement in the corner which I attributed to Angels and let them be.

This apartment is not a place I like. It is old, dusty and outdated. But it’s still mine and I want the evil out.

As I talked with Father about this dream, it unraveled. This apartment is my platform. It’s where I share my experiences and revelations about The Kingdom. Over the years, I’ve accumulated plenty of food on the table for anyone who wanders through and wants it. But I don’t want to live there because ugliness keeps coming through along with the people. So I’ve taken a sabbatical to clear out the ugly buggars they leave lingering in the air.

Where did the ugliness come from? Well, some people might say that I’ve been a bit naive over the years. In my excitement about revelations from The Kingdom, I’ve shared freely with abandon.

And last year, there were some battles. But no worries, I survived. And I have cleared out the buggars of pain and woundedness from my heart. But I don’t want to actually occupy the apartment right now.

So, I’ve left Angels, hoping they will refresh the air. Then I may slap on a fresh coat of paint one day.

This article isn’t to request your sympathy but to share my journey. Many of you experience this need for sabbatical too. It’s a quiet time to clear out the lingering effects of the battle of religion.  Sometimes we don’t like the area where it happened, for a while anyway.

It’s a conundrum really. How the most beautiful and exciting revelations can cause such turmoil in folks. It doesn’t seem like that should be a result. But it is.

We don’t begin with intentions of insulting people. But it appears to be an inevitable reaction. Sharing new vision exposes the shortfall of the old vision. It doesn’t make the old vision worthless because it was the stepping stone forward. But, for people who love the old and have set it on a pedestal, the new is a threat to their idol.

But we all know this. Right? Yeah, well, we may share as gently as possible and we may learn to discern. But there will always be those that will be angry.  This is the cross Jesus told us to take up as we follow Him.  It is the one that produces persecution.

Idols tend to crash when they come down.  They never get off their pedestal quietly and easily.  And unfortunately for them, it’s the nature of new vision to be born. It is time. And regardless of the screaming and fear of a mother who hasn’t prepared herself, the birth will come. It will happen. And it won’t wait.

Usually, sometime after the birth, she will embrace the child and experience the joy.

In the meantime, Father calls us to learn more, and He loves us the same if we refuse. I’ve become OK with leaving well enough alone. It’s “well-enough” that doesn’t want to leave me alone. Religion taught us to pursue those who we perceive as lost on the path of theological error.  Millions of martyrs lay at the feet of this teaching.

So, that was my dream. And I have moved out of this section of my house. Although I pop in now and then to share the food on the table. But for the most part, I live in the family section where it’s warm and loving.

It’s a good place to live while clearing out the ugly buggars.

Thank you for sharing my journey. Blessings on yours.

YOUR CORONATION INTO THE KINGDOM

king

 

IMAGINE your coronation to your throne inside The Kingdom.  The Bible mentions us being kings and priests before our God.  So wouldn’t that mean there was a moment of coronation?  And wouldn’t it probably be later in our relationship with Father and not at the beginning when we first believed?  Certainly, a newborn heir is considered royalty but is not yet a crowned monarch.

An heir is crowned when they have learned the techniques of ruling and reigning.  It has everything to do with maturity and availability.  And in The Kingdom of God, that ruling and reigning would logically encompass the ability to govern what is created.  Wouldn’t it? Jesus said that He does what He sees the Father doing.  So what does the Father do?  What are His capabilities?  Doesn’t He create and care for His creation?

If that is the paradigm, then we often focus too small. Healing miracles and raising the dead are a drop in the bucket.  He said we would do greater things.

So let’s look at what it might mean to be seated on a throne next to Jesus.  Greater things might mean caring for the whole planet and the whole civilization.

 

castle

 

But does it mean this world?  Isn’t The Kingdom within?  How do we rule and reign a Kingdom that is within?  And what does that look like?

Based on Jesus’s examples of the supernatural and miraculous, I would say that this physical world had no hold on Him.  Not by any laws, whether physical or religious.  He ruled from inside and therefore could ignore any law outside.

He respected the laws of the country by paying taxes and He said, “Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar”.  But He did it supernaturally.

He didn’t join Caesar’s system in order to pay His taxes.  He paid His taxes FROM His own system of which He was the ruler.  His Kingdom took precedence over this one.  And this is KEY.

Do we really understand the verse that says we are not of this world?  And what that means.  Or what it means to be a ruler in The Kingdom that is within us?

Jesus apparently didn’t join the medical community in order to heal.  And He didn’t join the political or religious community to change society.  He performed supernatural miracles everywhere He went.  And to every question, He answered from the realm of the spiritual.

Please don’t jump to the conclusions that I don’t advocate the medical, political, or religious community as having usefulness and purpose.  I try not to sign in much on any of those topics because I don’t see Jesus doing it.  He seemed to have little opinion about any of those topics.  His one and only focus was The Kingdom.  According to Him, it was the KEY to everything.  It was the answer.

This may be a scary discussion for some believers.  They may think I’m trying to be God.  But in all sincerity, I’m only learning to sit in a seat where He says I’m supposed to be seated.  And apparently, that means I should watch and learn from Him right now.

The ability to watch Him comes directly from Him and accepting the commission to learn is quite a brave step of maturity.  It requires the humility to know that I’m not capable of doing any of it myself.  Only because of His authority and power inside me should I try.

Then by accepting my responsibility to learn from Him and trust that His plan is not only possible but necessary, then I must be brave enough to do it.  With heart beating wildly, I accept the invitation to become what He wants me to become.

It’s true, the whole thing could scare me so badly that I might shrink to the back corner and abdicate my throne.  That wouldn’t be His highest hope for me, but even the courage to say “yes” must be learned.  It isn’t the first response I would have.  And He won’t disown me or reject me for it.  Rather, He will continue to teach me to mature and be brave until one day, even if it is somewhere in eternity, I will accept the appointment to my throne.

And then a coronation ceremony begins as I walk toward my King wearing all the finery He has placed upon me.  There I will kneel as He places a crown upon my head and anoints me for my position.

 

bright crown

 

Within the coronation processes here on earth, is an anointing procedure that is so private and personal that cameras are never allowed.  This is a moment of the deepest spiritual commitment and bravery.  This is between me and my Father God.

It is in that moment that I imagine the weight of responsibility is nearly heart-stopping.  How will I ever measure up?  Have I learned enough?  Will I make good decisions?  Oh, the weight!  The welfare of people depends on me.  They will either suffer or be blessed by me.

Our world and its societies are already suffering because we aren’t seated on our thrones ruling and reigning.  For whatever reason, we have not learned what we need to do to care for them.  This is why all creation is groaning for the sons to be revealed.

So let’s go back to the example Jesus gave.  He left His throne and came to earth to alleviate one of the biggest problems: the price of our sins.  We couldn’t escape those consequences and we couldn’t be perfect on our own.  That one element kept us from becoming joint heirs with Him.

He fixed that problem once and for all time.  It will never be an issue again.  That’s what a ruling monarch does.  He sees the issue and fixes it.

Now as we are seated next to Him learning and watching Him, what is He doing now?  He isn’t working on that same problem anymore because He said that was finished.  He said He also put all His enemies under His feet and got the keys to death, hell and the grave.

I understand there are a whole bunch of theologies wrapped up in this area of my topic.  But in my travels with Father, He seems to take me outside the box of our limited thinking and show me something different.  This one isn’t an exception.

Jesus was seated on His throne and saw a problem so He fixed it.  So, what are the problems we are supposed to be seeing and fixing?  He already put His enemies under His feet.  We don’t have to do that.  He has the keys to death, hell, and the grave.  We don’t have to get them.

But wait.  When we look around the world, people are still suffering the consequences of their sins.   He has the keys but people still die, live in hell, and go to the grave.  Wow.

What He did was a response to sin because its power hadn’t been erased yet.  Now it is.  So why do we still see it?

I believe it’s because people have been told to give their hearts to Jesus, but they haven’t been told how to live as kings and priests.  They haven’t learned what it means to rule and reign and be responsible for the whole planet, the whole society of humanity around the world.

THIS is the good news we know and use, and demonstrate, that we aren’t subject to the world, but it is subject to us as it is to Him who lives within us.

Most monarchs advance to their throne when their King has died, leaving them to rely on advisers and friendly King’s from other countries.  But our King is not dead and He will always be by our side forever to advise and support us directly.  I learn from His example, and He has my back, making sure that even my less-than-best decisions are turned to favor.  He has a way with things like that.

Therefore, as I learn how to rule and reign, I will trust Him completely and step up to His throne boldly.  I accept my crown and let Him set it upon my head.  Then I sit down next to Jesus and begin to reign.

I will change issues and problems FROM there.  And so will you.  So, let’s be brave and learn how to do it.

 

Thank you for joining me on this journey.  I send blessings to accompany you on yours.

THE REVELATION THAT BEGAN WITH MATTHEW 13

 

book revelations

 

Today I heard, “Check out those parables about The Kingdom is like …”.  So I did and the search began with Matthew 13.  This journey took on a meaning I’ve never heard before.  And here’s how it began.

First came the parable about the seed falling on various grounds.  And immediately my spirit said “The seed is truth.  The soil is people.”  So I went on.

Next, Jesus explains why He used parables so that everyone would NOT understand.  Yeah, I remember that revelation some time ago.  As we run around trying to make sure everyone understands exactly what scripture means, Jesus is saying not everyone will, and not only that, but He doesn’t WANT everyone to understand.  And the reason is simple.  We can’t have the wisdom of The Kingdom unless we are willing to have the relationship it takes to receive it.  We can’t piggy-back off anyone, not even a preacher.  It’s the meaning behind the oil the 5 wise virgins wouldn’t share.

Continuing in Matthew 13, the part comes when Jesus explains the first parable.  Sure enough, the soil is people.  But here he mentions that the seeds are the “Good News about The Kingdom”.  Hmmm.  Ok, that’s the truth He’s spreading.  AND when it falls on good ground it reproduces 30, 60, and 100 fold.  One person brings 30, 60 or 100 fold more people into The Kingdom.  But exactly WHAT is the good news?  Are we telling that context correctly?

Now comes the parable about the wheat and the tares.  Continuing in the same vein as before, I heard, “Still the seeds are truth, the soil is people, and tares are lies planted by the enemy.”   Well, that makes sense because it says not to pull up the lies but let them grow with the truth.  When the roots are matured and truth is harvested for the storehouse, then “reapers” will gather up the lies and burn them.

This example witnesses in my own heart.  As lies live and mature there, they eventually reveal themselves to be lies because they don’t reproduce any good thing.  I end up tearing them out of my head myself.  But if I had torn them out too early, I’d have damaged some truth growing right beside it.

I’ve found truth to be stronger, and it lasts, producing helpful wisdom I share with others.  It’s like secret keys of wisdom.  And everyone wants them.  Well … most people.  They help significantly in times of trouble, especially when we’re not sure which decision is the right one.

 

journey

 

Well now, this is an amazing journey and I’m enjoying this trip.

Next, is the parable of the tiny mustard seed which represents The Kingdom.  It grows until other creatures find comfort in it.  Huh.  I think that’s what I just said.  Yay!

Moving onward, we have a woman making bread and the yeast represents The Kingdom.  It spreads and fills the whole.  And that’s exactly the way good news flows.

Then, Jesus explains the tares and the wheat and suddenly I pause.  Now the seed represents people.  Wheat is believers and thistles are the wicked.  Whoa!  What just happened?  My whole revelation just exploded by Jesus, Himself.  Really?

Well, I’ve learned from past experience with Father that first glance is not always true.  Truth is found through The Spirit.  That’s why Jesus told parables.  Those who couldn’t connect through Spirit would never get the bottom line.  They would go happily onward believing exactly what they see in black and white.

So let’s continue with the thread Father had me following and see what happens.  Only at this juncture, we’re going to have to look inwardly and hear from Him personally or we’ll never garner the truth and fall short of the glory.

I looked up the word “people” in verse 38 and discovered that it means “sons”.  Then it hit me.  Satan never had sons.  He can’t reproduce.  He can only deceive.  That’s not the same thing as reproduction.  It’s not creation.  Satan does not have sons, only God has sons.  And if one of the references doesn’t mean sons, then the other doesn’t either.

In The Spirit, it felt like it meant a product spewed out of the heart.  Like sperm is spewed and ejected forth to produce sons, so are qualities of Spirit issued forth.  Father’s issue would still be truth and Satan’s issue would be lies.

 

dandelion

 

This parable also introduces the “end of the world” and since I’ve long gotten past the problem of there being an actual end of the world, I’ve accepted that the term generally means “end of the age”.  So I pondered this.  But again I had to pull into The Spirit to know the truth.  And here’s what I found.

It wasn’t the end of the physical world, but the end of a period of philosophy in our personal lives.  It’s a level of progression that includes lies living alongside truth within us.  Just as the wheat and tares were allowed to grow up together in the field, so truth and lies grow up together inside our hearts.  Until the day comes, at the end of that age, when we recognize the truth has been productive and the lies have not.  Then we quickly uproot the lie and burn it.  And we harvest the truth for safe keeping in our storehouse.

Burning lies causes the weeping and gnashing of demons teeth.  Their plans came to nothing.  They don’t win, and never will because they don’t produce anything lasting.  And growing season always exposes them.

Demons and lies are thrown into the fire and burned.  Not people.

The really triumphantly Good News from this day’s revelations is that burning lies are destroyed forever and cannot come back to torment us.  At the end of this process, the sons of God will shine without these temptations affecting their growth.  The way will be clear.

What an amazing victory to know there is an end to this for each one of us.  And our world won’t be destroyed for it to come to pass.  The destruction is not ours but belongs to evil.  These are the last enemies to become His footstool WITHIN US.  And the new Jerusalem will have arrived on earth through us from The Kingdom within.

I know this isn’t traditional doctrine.  And it may feel so new and weird that it makes us pause.  But that’s OK.  Let’s allow it to grow and see if it produces.

Thank you for joining my journey.  Blessings on yours,

Faith

 

 

 

 

 

 

ARE WE PRACTICING THE KINGDOM ON EARTH?

All creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons of God.  It is the one thing that will unequivocally change the way life on earth functions and display the qualities we so deeply desire.

No matter how godly this nation can become, it will never be The Kingdom of God on earth.  It will never be God’s expression of Himself on earth.  And our President can never lead us into that fullness.

Only we can do that by individually pursuing The Kingdom and our Continue reading ARE WE PRACTICING THE KINGDOM ON EARTH?

BACK IT UP WITH SCRIPTURE!

 

scripture

How many times have I been asked, “can you back it up with scripture?”  And then I have to explain that I don’t require that from Father.  Whoa, that annoys them!

I’m completely aware that it’s been done this way for a hundred years, but like so many other traditions, Father eventually tips them over.  And then I stand in fear and amazement at what He’s done.

Some years ago, when Father showed me a new insight or revelation, I’d put my hand up and stop Him from going too far.  Looking back I think it was a horrible response.  But, He didn’t seem offended. He waited patiently while I scoured scriptures and commentaries for confirmation.  Only then could I embrace His gift and experience the thrill of receiving it.

HOPE AND FEAR, or “DO IT AFRAID”

hope and fear

 

On the way home from work the other night, I had an intense encounter with hope and fear.

This trial and testing had begun with a horrible sound around my back right tire just as I was getting to work.  Nervously, I asked one of the guys to take a look but he saw nothing of concern.  So I said, “Well then I’m going to assume it was a build-up of slushy snow in the wheel-well that iced up and was clunking around in there.”

So for the evening, fear lurked just over my head, periodically Continue reading HOPE AND FEAR, or “DO IT AFRAID”

CAUSE AND EFFECT, and Gravity

Cause and effect

 

Let’s talk about Cause and Effect.  And maybe about Gravity, too.

It’s true I don’t take cause and effect very seriously anymore. After all the years of miracles and favor and such, I don’t expect everything that goes UP, must come DOWN.

For instance, for every financial mistake I make, I don’t have to live in financial hardship. For every virus I contract, I don’t have to be sick. Continue reading CAUSE AND EFFECT, and Gravity
