FROM RAMSES to SUKKOT

a.k.a., From Ramses (BONDAGE) to Sukkot (DWELLING IN GOD’s PRESENCE)

In the Exodus, Ramses was the border. It was the stronghold. Ramses represented the blockade opposing the children of Israel from leaving. Remember that Mitzraim, commonly translated as Egypt, represents the spiritual condition of being stuck in limitations, constraint. Ramses is the force behind those limitations.

The Title and The Name

The name of the Pharaoh is Ramses. Taken from the Egyptian Word for god.

A stronghold, a wicked power, an evil power that thinks he’s like God. A force that wants to be a substitute for the Authority of GOD in our lives.

This is a stronghold that is holding God’s people in bondage for so many years. The pain of Ramses is an unbelievable pain. With it’s so many soul ties, so many heartaches, so, so many abuses and injustices and struggles.

That no one knows about but the Most High God…

… and mostly related to the generations. Ramses was the house of bondage, affiliated with the pain of all the past.

But the LORD is saying something…

Your Prophetic Word is found in the Book of Exodus in the 12th Chapter and in the 37th verse.

Because Moses summarizes for us the journeys in the wilderness, instead of telling us like he does in the Book of Numbers, all the places they passed through.

He just says… They left Ramses and came to a place called Succoth, a.k.a. Sukkot.

Hear the Word of the Living God.

Because the LORD is saying to us all, “I am taking you from Ramses to Succoth; and the LORD is saying Ramses is the place of the Past and even starting today, the past is going to be a memory. Because the Egyptians you have seen in the past you are going to see them no more and even forever.”

Ramses

Ramses is the place of great toil, limitations, restrictions…

Ramses is the place of tears.

And often times you have wondered would that pain ever profit anything.

Ramses is the place of cruel bondage.

It was directed at your soul.

Succoth

Sukkoth is your destination.

Now hear the Word of the LORD.

Because many don’t know what Succoth is.

Succoth is a place; it’s the place of prayer.

 It’s the Pavilion of God’s Presence.

But Succoth is more than just that.

Succoth is the place of His Provision.

Succoth is the place of His Protection. Succoth is the Place of All of His Blessing.

The LORD gave this Word to me to speak in 2015, and He is giving it to me again this year in 2021 because some have drifted back into bondage. “You do not belong with Ramses. You do not belong to Ramses. The Word I gave to Moses has not died. My Word lives and You do not get to go back into a state of limitations and lack. You do not get to go back into complacency. Arise, for I Am bringing you to Succoth, just as Moses wrote in Exodus 12:37.

The Children of Israel left Ramses to go toward their destination to Succoth.

It wasn’t a physical place, it was a spiritual place.

A place that was a destination that would lead them toward destiny.

 Succoth is Your RIGHTFUL Destination.

Succoth is the Dwelling Place of Rest of God, in this life.

So the LORD says…

Do not stray from the path of true rest.

Do not change the direction that you are led upon.

You have been comfortable for too long.

And God is saying I will supernaturally provide for you.

 And God Is saying I will rain down blessings upon you.

And destroy all the powers of the enemy when you are on the path of Succoth,

Seeking Me…

Seeking my Rest…

Seeking me in Prayer…

And seeking me with all your heart…

Seeking me in truth.

Only One Question Remains….

Who is Ready to Leave Ramses?

The Ten Testings of Abraham, Part 2

Guest Author: Rev. Yvette Malveaux, Author of Know Yourself & Take Flight: 31 Day Journey To Becoming Out Of Reach by Yvette Malveaux, Paperback | Barnes & Noble® (barnesandnoble.com)

The Ten Testings of Abraham continued from Part 1…

In Part 1 of this message, we ended with the following questions posed and awaiting your reply….

If you were told to, “Go to your own soul? What would you even do? What does that even mean?

Would we even try to understand? or would we dismiss it as some crazy thought we just had?

Surely, GOD was speaking to the very soul of Abram and Abram received the message.

The Bible is a spiritual text, concerning spiritual matters. Spiritual battles are fought to overtake the soul of man. This could be the reason so many people say that they don’t understand it. Engaging the Word of God means that you have to approach the Gates of His Tabernacle with your soul and your spirit ready to receive the Word.

Here’s the key: In all your study in the word, keep your eye on what is going on in the spirit, to the spirit of man/mankind. Train/discipline your mind so that you don’t get so caught up in the “story” that you miss what is happening on the pages of scripture to the soul and spirit of the people that God is bringing to your attention. There are prophetic spiritual implications occurring right in front of you at all times.

In scripture God is speaking to the soul of man. His primary concern is with your soul.

Today the Lord has that word for everyone that is here. As you obey Him you will find out who you really are. As you surrender every ounce of obedience in your life, to the will of God, you will find out who you really are in Christ Jesus.

In Genesis 12, the LORD gives Abram a promise. “I will bless those that bless you.”

At that time, Abram had no idea he could not have a child. He did not know what God meant, but he was going to obey the Voice of the LORD, anyway. Genesis 12:4.

So, “Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to Him.”

(A lot of us want revelation, God to speak to us on a continual basis. One of the ways that we can be sure that God will continue to speak to us in revelation is when we are obedient with that which he already told us, and has already given. Then as we move forward, GOD will reveal to us even more.)

Now Abram departed.

Genesis 12:5

He took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother’s son. Lot: who was a convert. Notice the souls he had with him… Abram already was a soul winner. So, he did not leave alone. He went with the souls that he had gotten.

When you and I venture forth in obedience do you know that you are not just obeying God for yourself. There is somebody who you cannot see, someone you may not even know of, that is going to benefit through your obedience.

We don’t consider, that through one act of simple obedience, a number of souls will be affected. That one act of obedience can bring blessing upon those around us… does not make sense to our rational minds, Oftentimes this spiritual fact escapes us. It’s the simple things that confound the wise. But, don’t allow this to remain a mystery to you any longer. Ask GOD to show you what goes on behind the veil because of a simple act of obedience or repentance. How does obedience affect the soul?

In the meantime, Abram felt that he had to go against his own nature and character to accept the call of GOD. It was a very hard thing to do. He was such a tender-hearted man. It would have been easy if he would have been a hard-hearted person, who was calloused and maybe in competition with his father. Had he felt like he was going to show his dad a thing or two, he could have walked out without a second thought! But that was not Abram’s nature. It was hard for him.

But Abraham had been seeking GOD for a very long time. He had finally came into a place where He could hear the voice of GOD. Having heard, he could not turn away.

By making the decision to turn toward GOD; Abram had to die to self.

Soon after the 9th testing; his name was no longer going to be Abram. He became transformed through every act of obedience. Abraham had truly arisen and was moving forward, from glory to glory. He became transformed.

In Christ Jesus, who he did know at the time, but met in his life under the appearance of Melchizedek, Abram departed. He took the souls with him (Genesis12:6). Abram passed through the land to a place in Genesis12:7. After, his act of obedience, the LORD appeared to Abram.

God continues to give revelation. Obedience waters the promises of God. Obedience opens the avenues for the promise to take full effect. The Lord appears to Abram and said, “Unto this thy seed will I give this land” And Abram, built an altar unto the Lord that appeared to him. The altar was an act of faith, Abram was acknowledging before the world that, “the Lord spoke to me.”

When God speaks to you prophetically, you write it down. If, you have an ear to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying, you keep a record of His Words.

Genesis 12:9 Abram journeyed forward, continuing towards the south.

Now the 2nd Testing

We see in Genesis 12:10 Abram arrives in the Promised Land and there’s a famine. ( That must have been completely disappointing, right?) To come so far, though so much, and to arrive in a place of famine.

The famine is so severe that he is forced to go into Egypt to live. When he gets to Egypt his wife is taken captive by Pharaoh.

(Let’s set aside our English understanding for a few minutes, of the word famine, and put on our “spiritual understanding” gained from examining the scriptures from the Hebrew perspective… Famine from a Hebrew mindset, is mostly associated with the understanding that the famine indicates that there is a lack of God’s word. The literal famine is not as dangerous as the spiritual famine).

Abram is headed toward the promise and finds a famine. Without the faith to overcome famine, he heads down to Egypt to find food for His people. Is this only about the stomach–no food to eat? or could it be that upon his arrival to Canaan, there was not enough faith to sustain them as they built up their new land?

Abram had no idea why he was being led into Egypt. God told him something and everything God told him was now the opposite in the natural. Everything looked totally opposite.

Why? Because, he had to go to the 2nd level of faith.

3rd testing Sarai taken captive by Pharaoh

Abram went to Egypt because God was going to use his people to come out of Egypt. He had to go through it. God was going to use him as the father of faith. What happened when he got down into Egypt?

He told his wife to say she was his sister.

In those days if a man had a beautiful wife, they would kill the husband to kidnap the wife and give her as a gift to Pharoah. Abram did not want to get killed. So, he said to Sarai, “You tell them you are my sister when we get down there.” Everything will be fine. Well, the minute she got there, Sarai a type of bride of Christ is taken to Pharoah. Pharaoh wanted her to be his wife. Abram withheld that she was his wife and said, “Yes, she is my sister.”

Pharaoh immediately received a plague by the LORD. In the meantime, Pharaoh gave Abram such a dowry for her. He gave him riches and silver and gold and cattle and abundance of herds and all kinds of things for Sarai.

When he realized he had Abram’s wife, he basically said, “Just get out of here and go.”

Same thing happened to his children. By faith they borrowed of the Egyptians and Pharaoh said just get out. God allowed that to be for His glory.

Now Abram was the richest man in the holy land when he went back to Canaan.

(You cannot obey God and not come out ahead. In this testing we see the riches of obedience. Joshua 22:8 this is Abraham’s seed.

There is spoil when you obey.

II Corinthians 1:3-7 “Tells us now, blessed be God who comforts us in all our afflictions.”

1st testing; left everything.

2nd testing; went into Egypt and there was a famine.

3rd testing; Sarai taken captive by pharaoh.

The Ten Testings of Abraham (Genesis 12-22):

Setting the Foundation

Were going to share a teaching about a man that we have allheard about. We have probably heard many teachings on this man of God, —The Father of Faith, Abraham

Abraham went through 10 testings in his life. that we know of that the bible teaches us.

10 very important testings, 10 testing periods, 10 times in his life; that God tested him, that were going to see in the word.

To bring Abraham into the realm of faith that God wants to bring him into, that God ordained him to be brought into.

Go to Hebrews 11:1 for a “line upon line, precept upon precept” analysis. It tells us now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.

As we go back to Genesis 12 were going to see that Abraham is a man of Faith. He’s called the father of faith. We are the seed of Abraham according to Galatians 3:29, through Jesus Christ we became Abraham’s seed.

Here is a little bit of Historical Background…

Abraham previous to Genesis chapter 12 was an idol worshiper. His entire family was an idol-worshipping family. The genealogy of his father is given in Genesis Chapter 11. We also see in Genesis Chapter 11 the construction of the Tower of Babel. That’s where idol worship began. It wasn’t where sin began, because we know sin began in the Garden of Eden (in Hebrew Gan Eden).

But the first time we have a recorded act of idolatry, we know that it began in Babylon at the Tower of Babel.

At this place, in this particular part of the world, this was the center of idol worship; and this is exactly where Abraham and his family were raised up. So, all of Abraham’s family were idol worshipers. But something happened to Abraham. He had an experience with the living God. As a result of seeking the truth, God revealed himself to Abraham. But after God revealed himself to him, we know that Abraham was a righteous man. He began to win many, many converts. As we’re going to see here in Genesis12, many converted to the living God. They forsook idolatry.

But know as a man of faith God is going to give him 3 specific commandments (Mitzvots in Hebrew).

This is the First Test of Abraham

I believe this is really the basics for those that want to go further into the things of God. To those who are not just content with barely making it into heaven and glad that they have escaped hell.

But those that say I want all that God has for me. I want the whole ball of wax. I want everything that there is that God has for me. Things I cannot see, things that have never, entered your mind before.

The Bible tells us in I Corinthians 2:9

“The eye has not seen, neither have the ear heard. It has not yet entered into the heart of man. The things that God has prepared for them that love him.”

But there revealed unto man by the spirit. As we walk in the anointing and as we commune with the Lord through the wonderful person of the Holy Spirit, that which God has ordained for us is revealed to us.

Now we see Abraham begins his walk in the Spirit, a walk of faith

The very 1st thing that God requires of Abraham is a test which requires obedience.

(All tests require obedience.)

Genesis 12:1

“The Lord had said to Abram… Get thee out”

(Notice his name is not Abraham yet).

First of all, there is a whole spiritual message God gives Abraham. “I am going to tell you right now 3 things to leave behind and I am going to show you something in the spirit to go after… unto a land that I will show you.”

Notice that Abraham was not asking for land. Abraham was not asking for territory.

Abraham was just worshiping God. He had no idea that this is what God had planned for him. But, through walking in the spirit, a revelation came from God to show him who he really was.

Now I want to share something with you. Without obedience, you are never going to know who you really are. You will not know the real spiritual person that you have the potential to become. When I say “spiritual person”, I mean that one that has the full inheritance that God has ordained for you. Some of us try to make it into Glory by our own strength. We try every single shortcut we can possibly think of. The mindset is, that the means justifies the ends, just as long as we think we can make it there, we’re content.

Obedience seems like such a hard thing. But it’s through obedience that we receive the revelation of our true self.

Case in point: I will never know who I really am in Christ Jesus until every step of the way I begin to trust God. God does not just map the whole picture for me all at once. As you go step by step, from Glory to Glory, God reveals and unveils to you who you are in Christ Jesus. The word tells you who you are. But in the sense of revelation of what God’s ordained you to do, what God has for you to do, the great things in Christ Jesus that he prepared for you. They are so Holy and they are so priceless. They seem impossible to obtain unless you were spiritually ready.

At Each Level of Testing God Reveals Who You are to YOU.

Abraham had no idea who he was in the sense of the spirit. He had no idea what God had for him.

Genesis 12:1 The lord says to Abram this was his name before God changed it.

There are 3 things that he had to get out, 3 images that we see here in the scripture.  Because Abraham is the father of faith, he also symbolizes for us, the walk of the Christian faith as well. Not only is he the patriarch of the Israelite nation of the Jews, but also the bible tells us that he’s the father of faith. So we, through Abraham, can see ‘types and shadows’ of our walk in Christ Jesus.

NOTE: 3 Key Statements that GOD says to Abraham….

african american woman putting luggage in suitcase

Get out of thy country.

From thy kindred,

And from thy father’s house.

All 3 of these statements are connected to your roots. Your House, your culture, and your kindred. Now GOD is saying to Abraham, “For the work I have for you. I am going to give you a new seed, because your natural seed is not going to be just the flesh. You are going to have to sever those ties. Because, through your seed; I am going to make you great. Therefore, it is your seed that I am going to deal with.

There is a likeness here, a cohesiveness here that each one of us should see. When God, begins to deal with us in our particular issues, whatever they may be, oftentimes what God has told us to give up in the flesh, is connected to that which he is going to give back a thousand-fold in the spirit.

“Out of thy country, and thy kindred, and thy father’s house, to a land that I will show thee.”

The bible tells us in Genesis 12:2, “…and I will make thee a great nation; I will bless thee and make thy name great and thou shalt be a blessing.

Now those 3 things that he gave up were; his descendants, his genetic family history, and his immediate family.

Why?

Because of the word used here in Hebrew for “thy father’s house…”

In the original Hebrew language, it is the word that is the same word, used for idol, temple of idols.

 (Because his father; was an idol worshiper.)

 We need to understand something about the people of the Middle East. Especially in these particular times that the bible was written. When we look at Abraham in perspective to his culture and his times, we are going to see something very amazing about him.

The 3 Patriarchs of Israel are Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They were known to be spiritually and symbolically the 3 chariots of God’s attributes. Each Patriarch reflected a specific attribute of GOD.

The Attribute of GOD’s Character that Abraham so strongly reflected that was kindness.

You will find, as you study the life of Abraham, that his greatest asset in character was kindness. He was such a kind man. Many of the things that God required of him were totally against his nature. It was so hard for him because he had a sensitive area with kindness. When God tests us oftentimes it is with things that are impossible for us to do in our flesh.

It is known that Abraham is a reflection of the kindness of God, (called the ‘chesed’ of God in Hebrew). He is the one who reflects God’s kindness. Isaac reflects God’s strength and Jacob reflects God’s truth.

So, we see here that the Lord is saying, get out of your father’s house. Now, in the Middle East, the men of those days and even up to the time of Christ, leaving your father’s house was a very hard thing to do. This is why even some of the disciples said, Lord, “I will follow you but first permit me to bury my father.” It did not mean that the person’s father had died at the time.

This is a Hebrew idiom used to convey that the parent is about 70 to 75 years old. The concern was that the parent could pass at anytime, between then and 90 years old (approx.). The disciple was saying that they needed to be around to bury them. Still today this form of care for the elderly is practiced.

Now for Abraham his father was aged and Abraham’s natural inclination was to be so kind and so tender hearted, that his heart felt desire was to be present, caring for his aging father.

In the 1st testing God ask him a hard thing… “I want you to leave everything and follow what the spirit is telling you to do.” Jesus taught that this was not as license to neglect our loved ones. Quite the contrary. The Lord expects us to be loving people in our families, but we must see here the reflection of the Lord’s commandment. The Lord said, “Unless a man forsake all that he has, he cannot be my disciple.”

So, by faith Abraham leaves his father, his kindred and his country and goes to a land he was not even asking for. The lord will show him, the Lord did not even tell him where, the Lord did not even say it’s going to take this long to get there and how long he would even be there.

In this particular instance the Lord told him to do something contrary to his own nature and fiber of being… but Abraham was obedient and he left.

lech-lecha is the key word in the Hebrew that we can only uncover by reading from the Hebrew.

lech –lecha means ‘go to yourself.’ Our English translation has no way of capturing the essence of the spiritual message. In fact, it disconnects us from the part of the teaching that would otherwise draw us in, if we knew and understood the Hebrew.

You are going to find your true self when you obey me...

lech-lecha- ‘go, turn to your soul, go to yourself.’

GOD reveals Himself to Abraham and immediately speaks to his soul about his soul. There is nothing so benign going on as, “Get the out.” GOD said, “Go to your soul” Those words must have carried some weight, some form of gravity to awaken as person to such a extent that they would be willing to walk away from everything they knew and held dear, heading to the unknown and unexplained.

If you were told to, “Go to your own soul? What would you even do? What does that even mean?

Would we even try to understand? or would we dismiss it as some crazy thought we just had?

Surely, GOD was speaking to the right person…

to be continued in Part 2…

A PLACE WHERE GOD’S PRESENCE CAN MEET YOU…


And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first. Genesis 28:19


And he called the name of that place House of GOD: but the name of that city was called ‘Light’ at the first. Genesis 28:19

A few questions have come up regarding “getting into a place where the anointing dwells”.

You have to create a place for the anointing, or allow to designate one.

Is there one place in your home that you can dedicate to the Presence of GOD? I have a friend who had a nice size walk in closet for her and her husband’s use and that actually became her prayer closet! (I hope she post a comment on this blog so that everyone will know how sincere I am being).

Laura adorned her closet with comfy pillows against one wall of the closet, underneath her dresses. She had a pad of blankets on the floor, with her bibles and books and I think I remember a CD player for praise and worship music.

She owned a beautiful 4 bedroom home, with plenty of nooks and cranny’s, but her personal prayer retreat became the closet, and she could be in there for hours.

In one home I had the coziest little bathroom. There were 2 baths and just me, so the guest bath became a place of solitude. I loved the position and placement of the room, the windows, the view, the tile and molding. It was actually all quite nice. It felt like a luxury bath/suana at a really nice hotel. I owned a sofa that used to be positioned at the end of my bed. It was made of pine wood (a nice aroma) and I always filled it with nice sized, soft pillows and moved it to my spa like bathroom at that time. I could be in there for hours praying.

Another time, I fell head over heels for a little bench at a Presidential Museum, in the garden area. It was so secluded, hidden away in a nice little corner where few visitors ever walked. I used to go there, when I wanted an outdoors garden atmosphere that my concrete garden condo never provided.

I’ve chosen private-never ever used balconies, private prayer walks along a selective path at a dedicated time each day.

These days, I hide away in my bedroom–the compfiest place of all- ever! Where I’m surround by all my books and pillows and comfortable blankets, in a room that captures the sun and blocks all the outside noise.

I have another friend, that owns a business where she sees patients on a private individual basis. There are no other people present during their appointments. Because of the secluded, one on one nature of my friends business, her place also doubles as a place of prayer in between appointments. The decor is meticulous, from the pleasant aromas, the 5 star personal service, you feel special, cared for and it is like, you are the only person in the world that matters.

Her customers refuse to leave the place and will stretch out their time in her spa for 2-3- 4 hours if she does not stop them. (Next customer is coming folks!)

Iv’e had special places –my own personal possessions–at the beach for the occasional emergency- this needs to happen today by any means necessary– kind of places for prayer!

Which, miraculously, always seems to be cleared of people whenever I HAD to get there for a personal emergency discussion with GOD. This is my bursting down the door, kung fu fighting anyone who dares try to stop me- I MUST SEE THE KING–kind of appointment– A Divine Appointment with GOD – My MOED- on whatever day of the week it is required!

GOD ALWAYS Answers me at the Beach! It’s a special agreement that we have.

What do all of these places have in common?

Seclusion, privacy, peace and tranquility. Customized atmospheres. Minimal foot traffic, if any. Each dedicated to a specific, controlled use. Clean, organized, inviting, no tv’s, no radios, no internet, no outside noise, no common usage whatsoever. No confusion, no arguments, no bad/profane language, not even a secular book of any kind.

Pleasant and peaceful colors, scented candles, no common or profane conversations or communications… silence, selective communication or only prayer, praise and worship.

Find a place, that you can dedicate to the anointing as if it was the temple itself. Once it was my living room, because no one in the house ever spent time there. I guess it was for decoration purposes only, until it became a place for the anointing. Then everyone just wanted to sit in it. I had to redirect them to other places of interest! (This is not for you, people!). I said that with love, of course. 🙂

Take your best, whatever you have and place it there for the King. Even if it’s only you and your bible. Make the place your own. When Heaven sees you at The Place, the Heavenly Court will recognize your intentions, and all of Heaven will come down and grace you with the anointing.

This becomes your secret place. The place where GOD will meet you, there. It could be library (some have an adorable quiet, unadulterated atmosphere). It could be a broom closet in your home. It just has to be set apart for the anointing.

The more consecrated, dedicated time you spend there in love and thanksgiving (just sheer appreciation and dedication), the more you will see of the Presence of GOD. The more you pray, praise and worship there, the more you will come into contact with the Power of GOD.

This place can become so powerful that people who don’t know GOD, will feel the Presence of GOD. Company will start to confess things that you did not even ask or want to know. People will welcome prayer, be moved to tears, people will want to stay, people that curse will stop. It’s amazing what you shall behold in this place!

Find Your Special Place at the Beach, the Bathroom, the Balcony, the Garage, the Closet, the Garden… Find Your Place!

Pick a place and just make it The Place… Make wherever you are The Place!

I can be nicely laid out, but it doesn’t have to be. Plain is absolutely beautiful and GOD will reside with plain. It’s certainly His Favorite place. God just wants to be in the company of His most personal “treasured’ possession… You!

So the next time, when the angels see you headed for the beach… they will just turn toward the direction of where ever your enemies are located, and say,

“We Got This!”

It’s called the The Place of GOD’s Presence


And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the Lord: Genesis 19:27

And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him. Genesis 22:3

Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off. Genesis 22:4
And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood. Genesis 22:9

And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. Genesis 28:11

But unto the place which the LORD your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come: Deut. 12:5

Be Angry and Sin Not… (Ephesians 4:25-27)

25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

27 Neither give place to the devil.

Do you think Christians are not allowed to get angry?

Some families communicate to their children that they shouldn’t be angry. That instead of being angry, they need to smile and pretend everything is ok. That, “old fake it till you make it”, remedy does not work. That is not biblical.

In the bible, in the Hebrew scriptures (the Old Testament) we meet a God who is angry at injustice because He loves the people who are being harmed by it.

When the Apostle Paul says, “In your anger do not sin”, he is not saying don’t be angry. When people are harmed, enslaved, neglected and mistreated, we should be angry.

Apostle Paul is teaching we can be angry without sinning. We can use the righteous energy of our anger to effect change without sinning against God or others.

Remember, you are fighting the good fight of faith .

Ask God to show you the strategy and tactics to change the situation. Remain proactive.

1 Corinthians 15:58

58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Nothing you do for the Lord is in vain.

Heavenly Father, I thank you for being a God of justice. Teach me what it means to share your righteous anger and to be faithful in my response as your disciple.

You cover yourself with light as with a garment, and shed light on us…so we can be Your Light on earth! How much You trust us with Your Light.

LORD, just as you have set a boundary that the waters can not pass over, that they not cover the earth again…

The sun does not rise or set, except by Your Word. It shall stay its course,

The moon shall rise and set, there shall be no deviation from its path, the clouds shall be your chariot, You shall walk upon the wings of the wind, You make the angels spirits and a flaming fire, the foundations of the earth shall not be moved…

This far and no further….

At one time the waters stood above the mountains. At Your rebuke they fled, and the thunder hasted away. You appointed the moon for seasons, and the sun knows when to go down…

You hide Your Face and we are troubled…You take away our breath and we die and return to dust… You send forth your spirit and we are created, and recreated, born and born again.

At Your thought, the world renews itself and gives us a home on earth that sustains us.

Now LORD, we have given our leaders enough time, we have looked to them for guidance and found none.. we have waited for their science to solve our pandemic… they asked for 2 years, or 18 months for vaccines so that they can bring this epic-epidemic to an end.

Clearly, they have no solutions…we are to wash our hands and wear a mask. It’s the least we can do, and the best they can offer and I completely understand…they are out of their depth. We have funded WHO’s and CDC’s for decades and the world stands spellbound in the hands of men.

Don’t Let Us Fall Into The Hands of Man ….

Science does need time and good people are working diligently to bring us a solution. Countries are jockeying for position, “Who shall be first with a cure”, as if its a competition. Some are even dismissing the efforts of other countries, saying they don’t have the brain power, wisdom, skill or science to produce a cure. Once again, racial bias wants to dominate and determine not only, who lives and who dies, but what color can find a cure. Some are more concerned with the color of the cure than saving many people alive!

But You Oh LORD, are a shield for us, our glory and the lifter up of our heads

The world needs more time…

But You LORD, can make an end in a day!

Just as you have set the boundaries for the elements, the world, the sun, the moon and the stars, just as You have set the boundaries for the waters, on earth and in Heaven,

Agree with us tonight LORD… set the boundaries for this pandemic,

Dispatch your angels to set every cell of they virus on fire…. we curse every molecule to its root!

We decree and declare, that covid must die… we declare divine reversal..

The world needs 12-18 more months to attempt a best solution,

All we need is a Word from the LORD… All we need is strong agreement.

All we need is 2 or more in complete agreement, steadfast in prayer, consecrated, dedicated believers.

There are nearly 9 billion people on earth. There must be 2 who agree, and will not come into ungodly agreement with a plague. Who will not give it any quarter, any room for expansion.. who will hear every news report and forecast and cast those words down into the pit, like vain imaginations, and every high thought that sought to exalt itself above the knowledge of the Most High GOD!

There must be 2 Witnesses to the Power of GOD in their lives and who can speak that same anointing onto the world! There must be someone healed from the incurable, the impossible, the diabolical. There must be at least two people that can stand with us and shout, this far and no further!

Who will agree with me and call this thing illegal, its reign of terror over, its assignment cursed to the root!

Our sons and daughters and children’s grandchildren shall live. Our parents and grandparents shall not be susceptible, we bind this predator off of their homes, their lives, we decree and declare they shall be still, they shall abide under the protection of the Most High GOD, Everyone assigned in their lives shall proceed with great care and wisdom concerning their care, their lives, their handling…

Nothing by no means shall harm them. Enough!

This thing seeks our lives, to attach itself to our lungs and suffocate.

We decree that covid must die, we suffocate covid with prayer, fasting and consecration, with our faith and trust in GOD.

We suffocate and destroy every assignment of the enemy by faith in the WORD of GOD that proceeds out of our mouth. With every thing the enemy finds foolish in our prayers, we say, “Watch, and see how the LORD, GOD, ALMIGHTY, comes for our word in prayer to perform it! We have seen the Goodness of GOD in the Land of the Living and we shall see His Goodness over and over again!

We draw a line in the spirit realm and everyone under the covering of our prayers, on our prayer list, on our hearts and minds, shall be covered, included, blessed and highly favored!

While praying this prayer, I hear the teaching from 1 Samuel 18 when Elijah said that the GOD who answers by fire, let Him be GOD.

24 And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.

I’m hearing Zechariah 4:2-3, when the angel woke him out of his sleep and asked him, “What sets thou?”

And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:

 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.

By Your WORD, I ask for healing of the earth, the atmosphere and Your People… All the souls that you have given us to care for. I ask for healing in our every breath. Cleanse us LORD, as You cleanse from all unrighteousness. I ask that You agree with me, with us…with Your People. We put You in remembrance of Your Word, LORD, ask that covid cross no more boundaries.

covid must turn and die.

(Isaiah 43:26. “Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.”)

Zechariah 4:

10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth.

11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?

12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?

13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.

1Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.

We plead for the souls LORD, together, with One heart, one mind and one spirit. All we can offer is prayer, we have no science but The Lord of Host. Who is near and not 12 or 18 months away. ALL OF OUR CONFIDENCE IS IN YOU!

Send us two anointed ones, and even more LORD, that will stand by this prayer, as with the LORD of the whole earth and the GOD who answers by fire, He is GOD!

Amen.

Love… For A Black Panther

Another Black Panther has passed away. Once again, we weren’t ready. I know, It wasn’t your plan to leave us…. but still I felt a little cheated someway

News of our loss of you, came from across the room, it came like a bolt of lightning

I guess it had to snatch me out of hiding, where I’ve been secretly abiding, in a place I was not inviting -the world

So I’m reeling, because I’m seeing and hearing and feeling, another Panther dies, another light rising, another knight fighting for his life,

Another loss that will be forever with us, another side of grief that keeps us longing for the end of death, which is illegal by the way, That’s why we fight it everyday, it wasn’t supposed to happen this way, We were meant to live.

We wanted to pray for you, to place a command before Heaven for you, It’s what we were created to do, because GOD told us to,

He said, ” Concerning my sons and concerning the works of my hands, command ye me”

We would have commanded long life, we would have reached into the past with our prayers and bound all sickness and disease, we would have prayed until we had the release

Prayed… until your body remembered its first estate, until Heaven was opened by the sound of our faith

Prayed… until the future made room for our gift… your life was another one of our gifts!

We would have persuaded, negotiated, commanded it!

More time to see you reviving, thriving, living and not dying

More time for you to bring us close while you create, and motivate,

More time for you to bless and be a blessing,

More time for you to edify and encourage,

For all that you gave, we should have given, we should have nourished

Your soul, through prayer, with fasting and courage

To believe that nothing shall be impossible, because we believe

For every spirit you lifted, whether scripted or unscripted

We give thanks to GOD, that your gifts were shared with each one of us

We give thanks that your spirit existed, that we couldn’t resist it

To All the Black Panthers out there, I bless GOD for your life

I want you to live and not die,

I want you to thrive and strive, for much more than to survive

There’s so much goodness in you, that chases your greatness

In the final scene, on the this world screen

The Panther is not the enemy of the Panther,

Wakanda Forever!


For My Grandson…Because Judah roars for the Black Panther
