HE’S POURING OUT HIS SPIRIT ON ALL MEN

pouring

 

Do you ever wonder when Father God is going to begin pouring out His spirit on all men?  Well, wonder no more.  Step outside and start talking to people.  Don’t preach to them, but listen to their experiences.

I have a friend who’s only been to church during one week of her life. It was when she was 14 yrs old. However, she and Father talk to each other every day and she has relied on Him all her life.  I wrote about her in another article called “Knowing God“.

And I have another friend who is New Age, and yet she embraces my spiritual experiences and trusts any messages I receive for her. She was raised Christian but found the lifestyle too limiting spiritually. She calls God “the universe” but her spiritual understanding often mirrors mine.

There’s another friend who has burned up so many brain cells with drugs and alcohol that she can only rarely carry on a real conversation with anyone. And yet God speaks with her.  And when she tells about those conversations, the profound reality of His omnipotence shines through.  It makes the hairs on my arms stand up.

And I have another friend who’s a homosexual and when he talks about his life with the Almighty, you know it is God and His love has filled this man’s life.

These friends are examples of something many believers are encountering. And it makes us pause and ponder what God is doing because He doesn’t appear to be limited by Christianity. He crosses all the lines of our taboos.

He fills homosexuals with the Holy Spirit, and He speaks to drug addicts, New Agers, and apparently complete strangers.

Maybe He didn’t get the memo that He has rules.

Or maybe we didn’t get the memo that the veil tore and everyone is welcome to relationship with Him.

He isn’t exclusive to us. And we don’t get any kudos in excluding these people from our lives.

And when I asked Him once if He wanted me to teach that person about Him, He emphatically told me “Keep your hands off. I’m her only teacher and I like it that way. Besides, look at you after all these years.  You’re still unlearning junk that keeps you from walking in freedom with me.”

Oh, how right He is.  It seems that every time I begin writing, another holy cow pops up and I have to tip her right over onto her side.

You see, quite often Father speaks to me as I write.  He’s right there.  After all, He’s my greatest inspiration.  He always steers the topic into something that thrills my heart.

And apparently, He’s doing the same thing to a whole lot of others too.  He’s pouring out His spirit on all men and He doesn’t care where they are.  And it’s amazing to see.

Church isn’t inside 4 walls anymore.  It is spread over the whole earth and Holy Spirit is blowing just like the scripture says.  He goes places that we don’t know.

It thrills me when I run into another example of His freedom.  Like the complete stranger in WalMart who becomes my hairdresser.  She doesn’t go to church and hasn’t done so in years.  But she knows that when her husband has a car accident and he is the only thing in the scene that walks away uncrunched in one piece, it was God.  And she gives Him all the credit.  So does her husband.

And here’s the real eye-opener.  Father isn’t pushing them toward a church.  He doesn’t seem to care about that much.

But with each one of these people, great Joy and Peace spill out from them.  Their hugs are lavish and generous.  Love exudes from them freely.

So, I’ve decided to enjoy this blowing wind and join the celebration He’s pouring out everywhere I look.  It’s like one big party of happiness and I’m having a ball.  And when someone talks about being a part of a believers community, I know that I already am.

Yes, I know there’s healing for them and for us all.  But that’s another topic.  And if they aren’t there, or don’t want to be there, then Father is OK with simple relationship.  Love is more than enough.  It’s the Good News!

Thank you for joining me.

ONE WAY MY SPIRIT MESSAGES COME

messages

 

I’d like to share with you one of the ways Spirit messages come to me from Father.  He has many ways, but one He has used often is an “impending” feeling that won’t leave me. As though something is hovering over my head and heart.  It’s similar to a person standing at the front door waiting for me to come and open.

 

Father is a gentleman.  He isn’t rude and intrusive.  And He often treats me with the same kind of respect that I approach Him.  He knocks and waits for an invitation to speak.

Often the sensation is so strong that I can’t continue whatever chore or task I’m in the process of doing because the sensation doesn’t go away. That doesn’t mean that it can’t go away. It can. I used to walk away from it because I didn’t know what it was and I misunderstood it as a sort-of anxiety. But it’s not anxiety at all.

It’s more aptly described as a “visitation”.

 

Another description of this experience is that it’s similar to receiving a beautifully wrapped gift. As the gift sets in front of me unwrapped, my spirit soars in anticipation.

Except this anticipation becomes intense as though it is vibrating or humming. And it gets even more intense as I begin to pay attention to it. Sometimes it weighs so heavy that it feels like it’s pressing on my lungs and I labor under it, eventually to the point that becomes a bit painful to bear.  Like a water balloon that keeps getting more and more full, eventually, the weight feels as though it will explode.

 

weight

 

Sometimes I go into my bedroom and shut the door or sit in a quiet room of the house. And if He doesn’t automatically begin speaking soon, I’ll say, “Do you have something to tell me? I’m listening.” (Like Samuel did as a child in the temple when God kept calling his name in the night.)

I open and release my imagination screen for His use because He often illustrates what He’s saying through a vision-like picture/video.  His illustrations add detail to His Words and I crave every piece of my gift like the icing flower on a cake.

 

Whatever begins playing in my imagination, I let it freely express.  My hands are off.  No censor here.  And even if it gets wild and beyond my expectations, I let it play because this is Him.  Not me.

Sometimes the messages are very personal and weighty like when they speak to my destiny or purpose. Those are definitely not something I share with others. (Don’t throw your pearls before the swine). These are treasures to be kept in my spirit, possibly noted in my Journal, but guarded highly. And that’s not to say that others are swine, lol. It’s simply that no one can value it or respect it like I do because it’s not theirs.

There are also messages that come for others. They are usually encouragement and confirmation. And those are for sharing freely.

Thank you for joining me on my journey.  I hope it is a blessing to yours.

THE LIMITATIONS OF OUR SIGHT

eyes

 

A few years ago, Father began introducing me to the limitations of our sight. It began with flashes into the heavenly realm.  And moved into full blown visions.

I discovered that I may have been seeing flashes all my life but had learned to shut them off, ignore them, and filter them out of my focus.  It’s a process similar to looking at a fly sitting on a window.  Our eyes will adjust to the fly and filter out the view outside the window.  It’s the same process with camera lenses.  We can blur the background so much that it almost completely disappears.

As we filter out input year after year, it becomes second nature.  We don’t realize we’re doing it anymore.  So, when our relationship with Father grows, and we want to see more of what He sees, we ask for that sight.  And then struggle to receive it.

However, apparently, it isn’t a receiving action we desire, but a re-training of a lifelong habit. Continue reading THE LIMITATIONS OF OUR SIGHT

REJECTION & IDENTITY

Rejection & Identity book

Father unfolded a mystery.  

In our attempt to get rid of evil and cut it from our lives, we use Rejection.   But it’s a spirit who lies.  It won’t restore anything.  It destroy’s identity, and leave’s us in chaos unable to make decisions.  We’re lost.  And we’re desperate for rightness .

 

This was the context of my latest in-depth conversation with God bringing new revelation about our Identity going back to the Garden of Eden.

In a nutshell, Rejection is not a good thing, not even when we use it toward evil.  It is not a tool that helps us progress closer to God.  It is not the pathway to peace and righteousness.  And secretly you knew Continue reading REJECTION & IDENTITY EBOOK ON KINDLE – $0.99

THE CASTLE, part three

chandelier-448719_960_720Mesmerized by the lavishness of her gown and ring, Anna turned to Lucius for answers.  However, he wasn’t talking.  He was simply leaning against the gate looking into her eyes with such tenderness that she wondered if he could see into her soul.

She couldn’t look away.  Why did his eyes seem to dance and sparkle in the sun?  How was it that rainbows of color played in their irises?

Embarrassed that she was staring at him, and confused that she couldn’t ask him a simple question without losing her train of thought, Anna turned to the boys with the dog.  They were a welcome distraction that warmed her heart.

As they sat cross-legged on the grassy lawn, the boys tossed a yellow ball into the air.  Over and over the ball went up and the dog would jump and snatch it in mid-air.  He was quite good at his trick which made Lucius laugh and Anna smile in amazement. Continue reading THE CASTLE, part three
