Where Do You Stand?

As I enter into the throne room the closer I move towards the Father the more He begins to purify. As He calls me up, calling me higher, He asks me, how deep is your Faith? How deep are the roots? Is your faith steadfast? Do you want all that I have to show you? Then I want everything. Every part of who you, every thought you have, every word you speak, every action, every movement. Every scar, every pain, every lie, every embarrassment, every ridicule. I want everything. I want all your belief. I want all your hope. I want all your faith. Do you believe that I Am?

I Am. I Am Life. Do you believe? Are you willing to leave everything before me now? To go out a new creature? Leaving behind the unbelief of yesterday. The pain. The anger. The chains. Will you break them? Will you rise? My Sons are rising. They hear Me calling, will you forsake everything? Will you do more than leave behind the old man? Will you crucify him in all his workings of flesh?

A line has been drawn. The battle raging. There is no half believing. You either believe My Words or you do not. Either I Am Truth, or I Am not. Either I Am the Living Water, or I am not. I must flow, allow me to flow through you, or I will have to spit you out. Will you be nothing, will you be emptied, so that I may fill you?

Will you be what I have called you to be? Will you walk in the works I have set aside for you? Will you do only what I tell you to do? Will you say only what you have heard Me say? Will you be only about your Father’s business? The time is now. I want complete surrender. I want complete devotion. I want everything. Allow me to prepare you. Allow me to equip you. For I Am. And I, I Am Yours my Sons. Do you believe Me? For the hour is at hand.

The Prayer of Flesh V. The Prayer of Spirit

Galatians 5:17

“For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.”

There is a profound difference in Prayer occurring, the Father is asking, what is influencing our prayers. He is asking, “If your eyes are always on Me, and you only speak and do what I have said, then what am I calling you to say.?”

When we pray from the circumstances of our problems or predicaments, they are not of Spirit. If we pray because of what we are seeing than our prayers are not of Spirit. Only when we pray what the Father is calling us to say will our prayers be Spirit. So what then does it mean when we pray from a position other than Spirit? It means that we are speaking flesh and inviting it to rule over us. Because we have placed the value of our prayer in the natural and wonder why the super natural isn’t taking place. When we pray from a position other than Spirit we are exalting ourselves and our words and our minds above that of the Father.

So what then, in this season of trial, crucifixion of flesh, temptation, etc.? Our eyes should remain focused on the Father. He knows what we need before we have need of it. Therefore, our prayers of the Spirit will prepare us for the future. We can not pray from a position of flesh while seated In the heavenly places of the saints. Our Father is continually calling us upward, let us only speak what the Father commands and let us only do what the Father has done.

Guard your mouth for life and death flow from it.

Simple Truths

As we awaken to the glory of the Father this morning, simple truths will never again leave us. We will no longer look for the Father in anything seen, thinking it will reveal who He is, for we understand that He is the CREATOR of all. That nothing seen can reveal His ultimate and intimate glory. That only He, can reveal Himself. That just as a painting doesn’t begin to tell the story of an artist, the whole universe and beyond doesn’t even begin to tip the iceberg of our Father. That as we remain in the gates of the Kingdom, that as we manifest and bring that Kingdom to earth, that while others are looking for Jesus in the clouds to return we know that He has returned within us, that He has appointed and commissioned the elect to be the revelation of the Father. Remain humble, forsake self, do not be moved by what you see, begin to usher in the truth even as it goes against the natural. Rebuke lies directly and put to death the flesh that has caused them. Arise Sons. Now is the time.

The Father’s Presence

No longer will the presence of the Father be something that is entered into, but will be the place that we are always at rest. The revelation of being saints here and now seated in heavenly places will take such deep root, that no longer will the body be seeking ways or people to be brought into the presence but will see that it is an inheritance for all who accept what Christ the elder Son has done. The body will be moved away from seeking “the high’ and be made new, we then can approach the throne boldly not because of what we have done, but because we too are His sons and all that He has is ours and all that we are is His.

Let us release works today, let us relinquish our desires and put to death the flesh of the old man. The Father is calling the Saints forward and upward to show the sons their crown of life. As we step into the Father”s presence let us never leave, let us leave behind the death of the old man and allow Him to make us new. For we know in part and He wants to bring revelation that will draw the lost into reconciliation.

Bless the Father for His goodness, His love, and His mercy. It is in the Father’s presence that we understand love, peace, faith, hope, and the fruit of the Spirit are made our new characteristics through Him. With the Father we receive the peace of protection and the enlightenment of the body. the quickening of the Spirit will come upon us.

Glory to Him!!!

Pebbles

For many years before I had children, I would watch shows and read books about child abduction, murder, and abuse. These were very popular durning my early adulthood and for some reason I gravitated toward them. Once I had children, I was constantly plagued with what I had once watched. Late into the early morning I would have played out hundreds of horrifying scenarios that would keep me from living a full and healthy life. This was a battle for me. For years I would lose sleep. I would try and pray and nothing would change. I remember one night sitting up, so exhausted from this routine that went on for as long as I had children. I looked up, with tears in my eyes and simply said, “I need you to be real.”

This was the start of me leaving behind the bondage that religion created, and while at the time I didn’t know I was pursuing sonship, I did know I was entering into relationship.

The first battle I faced was the understanding that I was not battling Satan himself nor one of his minions. That they were far from me, what plagued me was my flesh. Religion had left me enemy minded, for years, I would pray and rebuke and see nothing. I would anoint and fast and would still see nothing. But my cry to the Father was heard, no longer was I praying for God to remove the enemy from my life or to just pacify me with a few hours of sleep. No, my attention was on the biggest hurdle keeping me from the revelation of the Father and a deep relationship with Him, my flesh.

So often we partake and consume of the world and then face battles. When this happens we are so quick to turn and rebuke the enemy and nothing happens. We are rebuking something that isn’t there often times. I want to say that Satan is real and that he does attack. But I also believe that the flesh keeps more from the Father than Satan ever has. We have to change our mindset from thinking about what we can and cannot do. Wanting a set of rules. We are told, we are free to do all things, but not all things are beneficial.

Just the other night, while almost asleep, I started to have intense visions about my children. About my husband and I. I have not watched or read anything that would have sparked this, but these were probably the most intense I have ever had. My old self would attempt to distract my brain. However, that part of my flesh has been put to death and I will not resurrect it.

I looked at the Father, who is real to me now and simply said “My family and I are Yours to keep and this, this is not mine.” I made a motion with my hands of just pushing everything away. Right when I did this the Holy Spirit flooded me with love and thoughts of protection. However, He didn’t stop there, He showed me, myself walking on the beach, slowly picking up pebbles, the more I picked, the faster I would pick up more. The Holy Spirit revealed to me that when we don’t renew our mind with the word we renew it with the world. We revert back to the old man. No one of my knowledge is complete in sonship, we all retain some pebbles and we release and then we pick back up. We need to become aware that much of what we face is not because of the enemy but because of our flesh. We need to realize what areas we are holding onto and do more than “release” them. We need to put them to death.

We fall into temptation because of our own desires. We need to make sure we desire what the Father desires. Even if our desires are good by the way of the world and the way of religion, if we do not desire what the Father desires then it will lead us to walking in flesh.

I have never walked in stress that my mind didn’t take me, we must set our mind on things that are above and renew our mind.

“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in You.” Isaiah 26:3

Sonship is not a destination. It is a process and journey of a deepening relationship with the Father. An unveiling of our true identity and walking out what the Father has destined for us.

Welcome Son

“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are Sons of God.” -Romans 8:14

The Father has be heavy with me as of late, bringing revelation, transformation, and correction. The correction is something as Sons we should welcome, we should be excited that our flesh is reveled and thus transformation can take place. As Son’s we must place the voice of the Father above all other voices, it must carry not just the most weight, but be unbendable, unbreakable, and unchangeable. I am thankful that my life is surrounded by people who love the Father, that I may glean from, however, there is an opposite side of that coin where their voice becomes my own, their influence become my beliefs. As I was talking with the Father over these last couple days, I felt the weight of the Lord. Asking me when His voice would become my voice, when what He speaks will become my beliefs, where His correction becomes my rejoining.

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” – John 10:27

“Call unto me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.” – Jeremiah 33:3

As Sons we are sealed with love. Having the heart of the Father, for God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. We must be peacemakers in all things. We can no longer carry the attitude of only loving the brethren, we cannot use the scriptures to justify this reasoning. We are to walk as the first born Son walked. If He carried this attitude than not one would be saved, for all were lost.


Arise

Let us answer the call of the Father in this hour. Hear what the Father is saying, for there is a whisper, He is calling those who want truth more than comfort. A life dedicated, a life no longer their own, a life in debt to the will of the Father. The Call is for those who are no longer satisfied with the things of the world. They want the things of the Father. The time is at hand when the realization of the future, is that the future is the Fathers. His timing is His own. We shouldn’t concern ourselves with trivial things. By not means are we to be ignorant, but, the perfecting of the saints needs to occur. If we seek the future with flesh it can only produce confusion. Somethings are reserved for the perfected saints. The Father will not give us the secrets concerning the Kingdom of God beyond our obedience or beyond our capacity to pursue. Let our only concern be what the Father is calling us to do, not worried about others, what is not for us, let it pass. What is ours, the Father, through our surrendering, will come unto us as we seek first the Kingdom of God.

Arise not to escape the world but to be separated from it. As we arise, we will be transformed.

The Sons MUST Surrender

As we purse the Kingdom of God and the transformation into sonship, we have to ask ourselves, “What source is fueling us?” If we have surrendered all, than, we will only have one source, The Father. We cannot partake of the Kingdom of God, if our source is anything other than the Father. Not because the Father doesn’t want to bless all or has a vendetta against others, but because the Kingdom of God cannot exist without the presence of God. It is here that some will say “If God is good than why did this happen? Or if God is good than why doesn’t He help those who serve Him?” The problem with these questions, is they place the Father in the world of the natural. We forgo the Father, and make a man made image of the Father that is rooted in flesh. Not the opposite of being transformed into the image of God, through the power of the Spirit. After we create a god with our natural mind, we began to imitate this fleshly creation, not realizing we are far from the Fathers actual nature.

With this fleshly creation, we then need “help” entering “his presence”. We seek the “high” of the Lord we once felt. Here our desire is not rooted in Spirit, but rooted in flesh. As we begin to seek aids to further our relationship with the Father, we are not realizing that the flesh is committing adultery. We have contaminated the marriage bed, inviting others and objects in, while being deceived into thinking that we are just. At this point we must turn away from our aids and ask the Lord to purify, for if we need someone or something to bring us into the Fathers presence, our relationship has roots in flesh, and flesh cannot lead us into the Spirit. The image of God that many worship is nothing more than a man made god. This god is far from the true nature of the Father. For the Father is Spirit, but because we have been fueled and ruled by the flesh, we couldn’t possible father the Father. Instead of purging our flesh, we created a god more relatable. A god created out of the carnality of man, from the wisdom of man and not the revelation of the Spirit.

From the man made god, we have religions and traditions. To see the Father, we must move from these, from attempting to plan the movements of God, for all these can only causes bondage, and the Father desires us to walk in complete freedom. The reason the Pharisees and Sadducees hated Jesus, was because He broke the laws of their sacred traditions. He only held and kept the Word of His Father. He came as an example, showing that nothing that comes from flesh can produce Spirit. Just like the Pharisees and Sadducees we try and bring the Spiritual and Natural together. Adding one element of Spirit and an element of the flesh. This mixture only causes confusion and adulteration of what the Father wants and desires. We will see the Spirit change, transform, and manifest, but we will never see it partner with the flesh. They have and always will WAR against one another. When this realization comes, let us not work on weaning ourselves from the flesh of our lustily desires, slowly giving up the things of the natural man, but let us completely do away with them. Seeing what is hardening our hearts towards the Father and causing us to not pursue Him, then putting to death these things. We must begin to hear, think, speak, and do what the Father is saying, thinking, speaking and doing.

As we hear the question of the Spirit, “Will you surrender? Will you forsake everything as the old dies away or will you cling to the old because you have poured yourself into it? As the flesh is painfully crucified, will you continue to surrender? Or would you rather be fully flesh because the way of sonship is difficult?” I pray all of us respond to the voice of the Father, for He is calling His Sons forth.
