The Life is in the Blood

The life is in the blood (not the body itself actually?).

It is such an interesting concept. It is not the body that is where the "life" is, but something (or some component?) in the blood.

When Cain killed Abel, God says something very interesting:

Genesis 4:10 "And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground."

In the Mosaic Law there are many references to the importance of blood. Here are a few:

Exodus 12:13 "And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye [are]: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy [you], when I smite the land of Egypt."

Exodus 24:6 "And Moses took half of the blood, and put [it] in basons; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar."

Leviticus 7:26-27 "Moreover ye shall eat no manner of blood,[whether it be] of fowl or of beast, in any of your dwellings. Whatsoever soul [it be] that eateth any manner of blood, even that soul shall be cut off from his people."

Deuteronomy 12:27 "And thou shalt offer thy burnt offerings, the flesh and the blood, upon the altar of the LORD thy God: and the blood of thy sacrifices shall be poured out upon the altar of the LORD thy God, and thou shalt eat the flesh."

In the New Testament we also see the importance of blood. Jesus said:

Luke 22:20 "Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup [is] the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you."

St. Paul clarifies:

Romans 5:9 "Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him."

1 Corinthians 11:25 "After the same manner also [he took] the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink [it], in remembrance of me."

As Gentiles began to be added to the New Testament believers, the Apostles determined the important rules to retain, exempting them from the Mosaic Law:

Acts 21:25 "As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written [and] concluded that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from [things] offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication."

Scripture teaches:(Leviticus 17:11a) "For the life of the flesh [is] in the blood...."

The Place of Trace Elements in the Creation

by C.E. Allan Turner

The majority of the 92 elements normally listed as found in the Earth were at one time regarded as scientific curiosities. However, during the last half-century, chemical research has increased greatly, while new and improved analytical techniques have developed. Consequently, much new knowledge has been brought to light about the importance of very small concentrations of certain elements.

The earlier metallurgists found the value of adding a little carbon, cobalt or chromium to iron in making steels for various purposes. To this list aluminum, copper, magnesium, molybdenum, nickel, vanadium, wolfram and other elements have been added for their important effects in steels. Alloys of many more metals have been similarly produced.

The effects on living creatures of small amounts of certain elements alone or in compounds has long been known. Most of these, such as arsenic, antimony, lead and phosphorus, have been recognized chiefly as poisons. Through the ages the precious metals were thought to have beneficial effects, but this lacked confirmation.

The principal elements regarded as essential for plants and animals are comparatively few. Usually in compounds, they are calcium, carbon, chlorine, hydrogen, magnesium, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, potassium, and sulphur, with the addition of sodium for animal life. To these must now be added an increasing number of "trace elements" in very low concentration. The first to come to mind, obviously, is iodine, probably essential only to animal life. At present the trace elements regarded as needed by both animals and plants are copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum and zinc. Additions to the list are cobalt and iodine for animals, boron and silicon for most plants. Each group probably will receive more such elements soon.

The quantities of trace elements present in organisms, of course, vary. In man the total amounts to less than 0.005% of body weight and if iron is excluded, the total is under a fifth of that figure.

Iron

The element which, more than any other, has given man increasing control over his environment in this iron age proves even more important in the Creation as an essential for his very life. It is an interesting fact that the ancient Romans appreciated the value of using solutions of iron salts for the treatment of anemia. To J. von Liebig, however, fell the honor of the great discovery of iron combining with oxygen in the blood.

The amount of this element in an adult human being of 70 kg. is 3 to 4 gm. or about 0.004% of the body weight; 65% of this is in the blood, nearly all being in the hemoglobin. Here it is locked in a complex compound of which it comprises 0.335%. The structure of this substance is one of the marvels of the Creation, and its function—through the reaction of the iron atoms in it with oxygen—is vital for respiration. It consists of four units, each composed of a molecule of haem united to the protein globin. Perutz and his colleagues in 1960, using X-ray crystallography, found it consists of four polypeptide chains, each containing a haem molecule. These chains interlock and form an ellipsoid of molecular weight 67,000. The haem molecule contains a single atom of iron which is combined with 74 other atoms and is 9% of its weight. This atom is the center of four pyrrole rings, which are arranged in a structure known as the porphin ring.

Iron is also found in human blood plasma in a number of other complex compounds. One such substance is transferrin or siderophilin. This is a protein, one gram of which is able to take up 1.25 mg. of ferric iron for conveyance to various tissues. Iron leaving the plasma is stored in bone marrow, the liver and the spleen. Storage compounds include ferritin, which consists of a protein of molecular weight 460,000 combined with 20% of its weight of iron. Another of these compounds is the insoluble haemosiderin.

A number of other compounds containing iron are also apparently needed in the composition of certain other creatures. One of these is an iron proteinate, haemoerythrin, which functions like hemoglobin, but is unlike it in structure. It is pale when reduced, but red-brown when oxygenated; it is found in marine worms such as Phaseolosoma and the brachipod Lingula. In certain polychaete worms, chlorocruorin is found. This consists of a protein combined with a porphyrin containing iron; it is red in concentrated solutions and green in diluted solutions.

Enzymes are complex compounds found only in living cells. Their function is to catalyze specific chemical reactions which are often important for the life process. Some fifteen of them contain iron. One group of these compounds are oxidases, which are needed for respiration and the oxidation of organic compounds in the blood. Catalase is one of the most powerful known, and consists of four iron atoms incorporated in a compound with a molecular weight of 248,000, and is obtained in a crystalline state from the liver. One molecule of it can decompose 2,640,000 molecules of hydrogen peroxide per minute at 0°C.

Lactic or lactate dehydrogenase, used to oxidize lactic acid, also has been crystallized and found to contain iron. Pyrocatechase, with a molecular weight of 82,000, includes two atoms of iron in its structure. Succinic dehydrogenase of molecular weight 200,000 has been separated and found to contain four iron atoms. Other enzymes containing iron include DPNH cytochrome C reductase, which has several iron atoms in its molecule of weight 78,000.

Iron also has been found to be an essential component of the catalyst involved in the production of chlorophyll in plants. And this last compound, found in and fundamental to all green plants, is really essential ultimately to life on the Earth. Thus iron in both animals and many plants has been given indispensable functions by the Creator.

Essential Fatty Acids

The term ‘essential’ refers to the fact that we cannot produce these substances within the body, so we must obtain them through our diet. Essential fatty adds are used by the body to build cellular membranes, and to convert into prostaglandins, which regulate the levels of cholesterol in the blood and control blood pressure. Their presence in fish oil has been isolated as a key reason that heart disease is rarest in those countries in which fish and seafood are a staple dietary Ingredient. Fish, particularly those native to the colder waters at the extremes of latitude are high In Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids. As the primary diet of most fish consists of algae and other water-borne plant life, it is not surprising to find these beneficial dietary essentials present in such large quantities within these sources.

Chlorella contains a greater quantity of fatty acids than either Spirulina or Lake Klamath wild blue green algae. About 20 of these fatty acids make up the artery cleansing, omega-3, alpha-linolenic variety and it is believed that this is one reason why Chlorella has been shown to be so effective in reducing cholesterol in the body and in reducing atherosclerosis.

Chlorella and Weight Loss

People who take chlorella when fasting often experience a higher level of energy. Because Chlorella contains 60 percent protein and because it's a whole food, it also satisfies the appetite while providing the energy that results from good nutrition. Many people who use chlorella discover that they lose their desire for unnecessary snacks and don't even miss them. Taken during diets, Chlorella can help restore the natural balance of the body so a real permanent change can be made in your overall health and weight. Chlorella can be incorporated as a positive addition to any weight weight-loss program.

Avoid all alcohol, margarine, heated oils / fats, hydrogenated fats as these compromise the immune system. If you want the occasional fried food use olive or coconut oil, use a very low heat and keep a lid on the pan. Include something e.g. onions in the pan to provide plenty of water vapour to keep the temperature of the oil as low as possible. Burnt food, especially oils are immunosuppressive and toxic

No wheat or wheat products including bread, cakes, biscuits, flour and so on (except for non-yeasted spelt wheat bread, non-yeasted dark rye bread, and rice cakes,‘Essene bread’(whole grains have been sprouted) is available from some health shops

Mold Removal with Bleach

Bleach can kill virtually every species of indoor mold that it comes into contact with, along with its spores, leaving a surface sanitized and resistant to future mold growth.

Unfortunately, however, using bleach is only effective if the mold is growing on non-porous materials such as tiles, bathtubs, glass and countertops. Bleach cannot penetrate into porous materials and so it does not come into contact with mold growing beneath the surface of materials such as wood and drywall. Using bleach on these materials will kill the mold above the surface but the roots within the material will remain and the mold will soon return.

How to Kill Mold with Bleach

Bleach produces harsh fumes so make sure the area is well ventilated before you begin. You should also wear gloves during the process to protect your hands.

For killing mold with bleach use a ratio of one cup of bleach per gallon of water (ie about 1 part bleach to 10 parts water).

Apply the solution to non-porous surfaces with mold growth either by using a spray bottle or by using a bucket and a sponge or cloth.

You don't need to rinse the surface afterwards (unless it is used for food preparation or a surface which may be touched by small children or pets) as the bleach will inhibit mold growing in the future.

Does Bleach Kill Mold?
Although the active ingredient in bleach, sodium hypochlorite, is the main ingredient in many mold removal products, there are many reasons to use alternatives to chlorine bleach when killing mold.

One reason is that bleach cannot completely kill mold growing in porous materials. The chlorine in bleach cannot penetrate into porous surfaces such as drywall or wood. The chlorine is left on the surface of porous materials and only the water component of the bleach is absorbed into the material, providing more moisture for the mold to feed on.

Some of the mold on the surface might be killed but the roots of the mold are left intact meaning the mold soon returns, leaving you in a cycle of repeated bleaching. Perhaps this is why some people believe that spraying bleach on mold doesn't affect it but instead just bleaches its color so you can no longer see it.

Another disadvantage of bleach is that it can damage the materials it's used on as it is a harsh, corrosive chemical. Chlorine bleach also gives off harsh fumes and it even produces toxic gas when mixed with ammonia. There are safer alternatives such as borax or vinegar which don't produce dangerous fumes or leave behind toxic residue. For these reasons try to avoid using bleach and if you must use it, only use it on non-porous surfaces.

Mold Removal with Borax
There are many advantages to using borax to kill mold. For starters, borax is a natural cleaning product and although it is toxic if you swallow it, borax does not emit chemicals or dangerous fumes like some other mold killers. Borax, a white mineral powder, has a pH level of about 9 (baking soda is pH 8.1 and pH 7 is neutral) and a low toxicity.

Borax is commonly used as a deodorizer as well as for cleaning toilets and drains. Borax is also used as an insecticide, herbicide and fungicide and it can be mixed with water in a solution to kill and remove mold as it is a natural mold inhibitor. You can buy borax in supermarkets for a few dollars from the laundry section.

The Spirit of prophecy then came that was electrifying. The word was that the Lord was imparting a higher level of anointing for the Watchmen’s ministry and the ministry of interpretation of prophecy, visions and dreams, as well as the impartation for the Issachar anointing spoken of in 1 Chronicles 12:32,“And of the Children of Issachar, there were men of understanding of the times, to know what Israel out to do.”
God is releasing the Joseph anointing, which is not only the ability to interpret dreams, but the wisdom of God to know how to properly prepare the people for the times so they will know what to do. Joseph not only interpreted Pharaohs dream disclosing that Egypt would experience 7 years of prosperity followed by 7 years of famine, but how to instruct the people to prepare for the famine.
In doing so, they prospered during both the good years and the lean years. It is this anointing of wisdom that God is releasing to instruct others that will enable people to prosper even during times of disaster, famine and destruction. Like the ark of Noah, being properly prepared for the times may mean the difference between being washed away by a flood or the ability to ride upon it tucked away in the Ark of safety!

Watchmen of Intercession
Another word that came during this time is that the anointing is being released for a higher level of intercession. Watchmen are now coming into a spiritual realm where they not only know the heart of God, but the ability to see into the camp of the enemy to disclose the plans of the adversary. Along with this is the ability to know the plans of the Lord with the wisdom to carry out divine strategies. Instead of the church being ambushed by the enemy, the Church will ambush the enemy.
Heaven and earth are about to collide. Soon the veil between the two will become so thin, that the church will enter into the heavenly realm at will. And like Jacobs ladder, many will watch the angels of the Lord ascend and descend from heaven.
Watchers of the Lord will timely appear at meetings and during times of intercession, as well as to individuals. As timely messengers these watchers will communicate God’s heart with specific knowledge and instruction that will enable the Church to carry out the Father’s will on earth as it is in heaven. These Watchers know the cycles, seasons and times of the Lord. Working with God’s people, they will release the wisdom and understanding of these times upon the earth through those that know how to intercede, declare and decree God’s purpose with Kingdom power and authority.
Others will interpret visions, prophecy and dreams of those in politics, business and even Kings, instructing them with the wisdom of God that will enable them how to prepare for the times and even to prosper even during the hard times.

The idea that Jesus was born December 25th, is one of the FABLES the Apostle Paul prophesied (II Tim. 4:4) would deceive the world in these latter days.

The plain truth is, Christmas is NOT Christ's birthday at all! And this festival, important as it seems to so many, is not of Christian, but of pagan — Babylonish — origin! But does that make any difference? Isn't it all right to go ahead and observe it anyway? Isn't the "Christmas SPIRIT" a good and splendid thing, regardless of how it got started? WE SHALL SEE!

Jesus NOT Born December 25th

Now let's look to the interesting PROOF! When was Jesus born?

Jesus was not even born in the winter season! When the Christ-child was born "there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night" (Luke 2:8). This never could have occurred in Palestine in the month of December. The shepherds always brought their flocks from the mountainsides and fields and corralled them not later than October 15, to protect them from the cold, rainy season that followed that date. Notice that the Bible itself proves in Song of Solomon 2:11, and Ezra 10:9, and 13, that winter was a rainy season not permitting shepherds to abide in open fields at night.

It was an ancient custom among Jews of those days to send out their sheep to the fields and deserts about the Passover (early spring), and bring them home at commencement of the first rain, says the Adam Clarke Commentary, Vol. 5, page 386 (and 370).

Continuing, this authority states: "during the time they were out, the shepherds watched them night and day. As ... the first rain began early in the month of Marchesvan, which answers to part of our October and November [begins mid-October], we find that the sheep were kept out in the open country during the whole summer. And, as these shepherds had not yet brought home their flocks, it is a presumptive argument that October had not yet commenced, and that, consequently, our Lord was not born on the 25th of December, when no flocks were out in the fields; nor could He have been born later than September, as the flocks were still in the fields by night. On this very ground, the nativity in December should be given up. The feeding of the flocks by night in the fields is a chronological fact ... See the quotations from the Talmudists in Lightfoot."

Any encyclopedia, or any other authority, will tell you that Christ was not born on December 25. The Catholic Encyclopedia frankly states this fact.

The exact date of Jesus' birth is entirely UNKNOWN, as all authorities acknowledge — tho if I had space in this booklet I could show you Scriptures which at least strongly indicate that it was in the early fall — probably September — approximately six months after Passover.

If God had wished us to observe and celebrate Christ's birthday, He would not have so completely hidden the exact date.

What the Bible Says About the Christmas Tree!

But if the Bible is silent about telling us to observe CHRISTMAS, or recording any such observance by the apostles or early true Church, it does have something to say about the Christmas tree!

This will come as a real surprise to many. But here it is:

Jeremiah 10:2-6 "Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen ... For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a TREE out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not."

There is a perfect description of the Christmas tree, termed by the Eternal as "the way of the heathen — the custom of the people." We are commanded NOT to learn that way or follow it! It is also viewed in this passage as idolatry. The fifth verse shows that these trees cannot speak — cannot walk — must be carried. "Be not afraid of them; for they (the trees) cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good." They are not gods to be feared. Some people misread this to make it say there is no harm in having a Christmas tree, but that is not what it says.



Isn't Exchanging GIFTS Scriptural?

But when it comes to the most important part of all in this Christmas observance — the Christmas SHOPPING season — the buying and exchanging of GIFTS — many will exclaim triumphantly, "Well, at least the Bible tells us to do THAT! Didn't the wise men give gifts when Christ was born?"

Again, we are due for some SURPRISES, when we learn the PLAIN TRUTH! First, let's look at the historic origin of trading gifts back and forth, then see exactly what the Bible does say about it.

From the Bibliotheca Sacra, Vol. 12, pages 153-155, we quote. "The interchange of presents between friends is alike characteristic of Christmas and the Saturnalia, and must have been adopted by Christians from the Pagans, as the admonition of Tertullian plainly shows."

The fact is, this custom fastened upon people of exchanging gifts with friends and relatives at the Christmas season, has not a single trace of Christianity about it! Strange tho that may seem! This does NOT celebrate Christ's birthday or honor it or Him! Suppose someone you love has a birthday. You want to honor that person on his or her birthday. Would you lavishly buy gifts for everyone else, trading gifts back and forth with all your other friends and loved ones, but IGNORE COM-PLETELY any gift for the one whose birthday you are honoring? Rather absurd, when viewed in that light, isn't it?

Yet this is exactly what people the world over are doing! They honor a day that is NOT Christ's birthday by spending every dime they can scrape together in buying presents to trade back and forth among friends and relatives. But I can say by years of experience, as I believe most pastors and ministers can say, that when the month of December rolls around, nearly all professing Christians forget to give gifts to CHRIST and HIS CAUSE almost altogether!

Now consider what the Bible says about giving gifts when Christ was born. It is in Matthew 2:1-11. "Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews?... And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary His mother, and fell down, and worshiped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto HIM gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh."

WHY Gifts Presented to Christ

Notice, they inquired for the child Jesus, who was born KING of the Jews! Now WHY did they present gifts to Him? Because it was His birthday? Not at all, because they came several days or weeks after the date of his birth! Was it to set an example for US, today, to trade gifts back and forth among ourselves? No, notice carefully!— they did not exchange gifts among themselves, but "they presented unto HIM gifts." They gave THEIR gifts to CHRIST, not to their friends, relatives, or one another!

WHY? Let me quote from the Adam Clarke Commentary, Vol. 5, page 46: "Verse 11.(They presented unto Him gifts). The people of the east never approach the presence of kings and great personages, without a present in their hands. The custom is often noticed in the Old Testament, and still prevails in the east, and in some of the newly discovered South Sea Islands."

There it is! They were not instituting a NEW Christian custom of exchanging gifts with friends to honor Christ's birthday. They were following an OLD and ANCIENT eastern custom of presenting gifts to a KING when they came into his presence. They were approaching Him, born KING of the Jews, in person. Therefore custom required they present GIFTS — even as the Queen of Sheba brought gifts to Solomon — even as many people today take a gift along when they visit the White House for an appointment with the President.

No, the custom of TRADING GIFTS back and forth does not stem from this Scriptural incident at all, but rather, as quoted from history above, it is the continuance of an ancient PAGAN custom. Instead of honoring Christ, it invariably RETARDS His work, often sets it back, at the Christmas season every year!



We're IN BABYLON, and Haven't KNOWN IT!

Christmas has become a COMMERCIAL season. It's sponsored, kept alive, by the heaviest retail advertising campaign of the year. You see a masqueraded "Santa Claus" in many stores. Ads keep us deluded and deceived about the "beautiful Christmas SPIRIT." The newspapers, who sell the ads, print flowery editorials exalting and eulogizing the pagan season, and its "spirit." Gullible people have become so inoculated, many take offense when told the TRUTH! But the "Christmas SPIRIT" is created each year, not to honor Christ, but to SELL MERCHANDISE! Like all Satan's delusions, it appears as an "angel of LIGHT," is made to appear GOOD. BILLIONS OF DOLLARS are spent in this merchandising spree every year, while the CAUSE OF CHRIST must SUFFER! It's part of the economic system of BABYLON!

We are God's people ISRAEL! Yes, we're IN BABYLON, as Bible prophecy foretold, and we don't know it! Come OUT of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her SINS, and that ye receive not of HER PLAGUES" — now soon to fall — is the warning of Rev. 18:4.

Worship

Carefully note this point: We cannot possibly please God by setting up our own means of worshipping Him. Paul called worship contrived by man "will worship", and condemned it (Colossians 2:23; read the entire context from 2:8 through 2:23). Jeroboam sinned by instituting a day of atonement which was "like the one feast which is in Judah," the one ordained by God, but on a different day. The inspired text indicts Jeroboam because "he devised in his own heart" a month for a holy day (1 Kings 12:32-33). Even though they were offering incense to the Lord, Nadab and Abihu failed to treat Him as holy because they used fire from a source other than that which was prescribed (Leviticus 10:1-3). They were consumed by fire from the Lord for their transgression.

Christmas is man-made, and therefore an unacceptable means of worship. Worship, by definition, is an act recognizing the one who is worshipped as Lord. If he is Lord, whose Will should prevail? If I dictate the means of worshipping, whose Will prevails? Do you see the point? Worshipping God in my own way is a contradiction. To worship God, I must do so according to His will. What is God’s Will? God’s Will is his Law written in our hearts (Psalm 40:8). Jesus said his true family are those who "shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven" (Mat.12:50). Christmas is a tradition, and we don’t worship God by following man-made traditions (Mat.15:3,6, Mark 7:7-9,13, Col.2:8). We are to show our love for Jesus by doing what Jesus himself said to do in John 14:15, "If ye love me, keep my commandments" (John 21,24; 15:10,14, James 1:22, Rom.2:13, 1 John 5:2-3). "Holi-day" means "Holy-day", and only one entity can make a day Holy. Did God, or man, make Christmas a Holy-day? If we know that the roots of Christmas are of pagan origin, shouldn't the roots of our worship be in the scriptures, rather than paganism?

Some will argue for the "keeping of Christmas" on the basis of "giving the kiddies a good time." But why do this under the cloak of honoring the Savior's birth? Why is it necessary to drag in His Holy name in connection with what takes place at this season of carnal jollification? As Jesus once asked, in Luke 6:46, "And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?"

The Number 11:11- A Time to Recover, Restore and Gather

Many of you have been seeing the number 11:11 for quite some time. This number has been recurring frequently since 11-11-2011, the year of double transition. The year that a major transition took place to bring God’s people out of the old, into the new. It was the year of the eye of the Lord – the time to “see again” what the Lord was saying. The time to see “The New” that is being birthed out of God’s presence.
The Spirit of Revelation is opening the eyes of our understanding in this specific season with the wisdom to know how the hand of the Lord is moving. The key to unlocking the meaning of this number is contained in Isaiah 11:11, which states in part,“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people….”
It is God’s passion to move again to “recover” the remnant of His people and restore them back to their Promise Land and to their Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ. The ministry of reconciliation and redemption is a deep passion of God’s heart. There is the grace released at Calvary to “Recover” the acquisitions the enemy has stolen. God’s hand is moving to recover the destiny of His people who have been sidetracked, misled or fallen. It is the heart of the Father to redeem, restore and recover the inheritance of His people “For this purpose was the Son of God manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil”(1 John 3:8).
God is the author of life. From the very beginning we see God’s heart is to bring light where there is darkness, life where there is death and order where there is confusion. In the midst of the new creation, God established the Garden of Eden. Because of the fall, Christ as the second Adam came to redeemed mankind for intimacy with our creator and to restore the earth to the paradise it was intended to be. At the very core of the heart of God is the restoration of God’s people!
A remnant must be recovered and restored to their inheritance in the body of Christ, which is the current move of God. To be used in this great awakening, seek out those that God brings to your heart. The Holy Spirit will reveal the details as you walk forward in love. God’s love has a purpose. As you walk in love, just know that the Lords hand is moving to gather a people that are ready to move to a higher level with the passion to network together. You will know them by the fire that burns in their heart for the things of the Spirit.
God is calling His people to gather around His throne to receive His strategies and blueprints to make a Kingdom advance from the realm of heaven. The old has passed away and there is a new dawn rising. Rather than gathering people under a common umbrella and calling it “unity,” we need to gather with those walking in Kingdom reality. It takes courage to come out of the old to pioneer something new. In order to walk in the new that displays the power of transformation, we must reveal the light of His glory that manifest the sweet aroma of the KNOLWEDGE of HIS PRESENCE in every place (2 Cor. 2:14-15). Nothing else will do nor should it!
Deuteronomy 11:11 tells us that the land of our inheritance that is ours in Christ, is a land that is saturated with the essence of heaven. This is a verse of promised inheritance for those who are sons of God as joint heirs with Jesus “ But the land, whether you to posses it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinks water of the rain of heaven.”

If you have seen the number 11:11:11, God is letting you know with the assurance to have the confidence that the power of the Trinity, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit is working on your behalf to bring you into your full inheritance. You are called for such a time as this!( I will be speaking more in another article on the number 1:11 and 11:1) 1

AWAKENED MERCY
Because November 11 fell on Veterans’ day this year, I believe a fresh wind of the Spirit is blowing upon the wounded warriors and the fallen soldiers As we see in Ezekiel’s graveyard, it is the dry bones that God raised up by His resurrection power and the Spirit of the Lord came upon them and they became “an exceeding great army”(Ez. 37:10). Today, in the midst of a land overshadowed by religion, God is gathering His people to mobilize as an army and He will lead it.
The Lord is recruiting those with the heart of “gathering” that have an eye for restoration and healing. God is awakening hearts by the power of His love with an impartation of His great mercy. Just as the scripture tells us in Isaiah 11:11, the Lord’s hand will move a “SECOND TIME” to recover the remnant of His people. This is the mercy of God. If you have fallen, you have a second chance, for God will never leave you or forsake you! If you are in captivity, the Lord’s hand is moving to open the prison doors to set you free!
The scripture tells us that even though a righteous man may fall seven times, yet he will rise again.(Prov. 24:17) It is not our “falling” that displeases God as much as our “rising’ up to move forward that pleases Him. As the apostle James declared, we all stumble in many ways. Praise God through Christ Jesus, there is a pathway for recovery and restoration as Paul informed us in Galatians 6:1,
Brethren, if a man is overtaken in a fault, you who are spiritual, restore them in the spirit of meekness, considering yourself, lest you are also tempted (and stumble).
Anyone can look at a barn that needs repair and proclaim it’s condition, but it takes a craftsmen that yields his hands to the work to restore it to it’s original condition. Instead of casting one another down, we must embrace the Father’s hand to build up one another in HIs love. His love edifies and His love never fails. We are all aware what is wrong in the region, where change needs to take place, and what the adversary is doing. This knowledge does not create change. It is Christ and His love revealed by a people that host His presence, that invades the impossible with the glorious light and power of heaven “But those who know their God shall be strong and do great exploits” Daniel 11:32.
The Word of Reconciliation
190690_1674243614707_2457489_n What doe you see? The Lord posed this question to Jeremiah and his response is noted in Jer. 1:11. Your call is blossoming with the anointing to build and to plant and God will hasten His Word to perform it. It is the Malachi four anointing to see restoration by the power of His love take place in the heart of His people.
To implement this, the Lord is releasing the WORD OF RECONCILLIATOIN with a newfound power and authority. The Word of reconciliation is the power of God’s Word that reveals the love of God with signs and wonders. As Paul said,
“To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them, but has commended unto us the Word of reconciliation”(2 Cor. 5:19).
To those who can be trusted with their word, God is granting the silver sword, the Word of Reconciliation with a greater measure of the power and authority of the Spirit. Jesus is the Word of God (John 1:1). Those who wield the Sword of His Word will reveal the glory, power and splendor of God with signs and wonders.
And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them,, and confirming the Word with signs following A-men (Mark 16:20).
