Announcing The Selection for Our Next Book Club Reading…

Between God and Man by Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-1972)

Reading begins: November 24, 2021 Ends: January 7, 2022

Heschel puts forth the question, “Does the worth of wonder merely consist in its being a stimulant to the acquisition of knowledge? Is wonder the same as curiosity? He proposes to us that, knowledge is not the beginning of knowledge, but an act that goes beyond knowledge… it is an attitude that never ceases.”

Heschel suggests that our sense of wonder [and awe] has declined. I agree. However, I know we can recover it!

He concludes that, ” life without wonder is not worth living,” finding that, “What we lack is not a will to believe, but a will to wonder.”

As we begin our journey through his book, consider the level of awe from which you approach the world each day? Do you marvel at the creation miracle that we continue to experience day by day? Can you see and sense the hand of God throughout creation?

Are you able to cut past the noise, the indifference, and the difficulties and still gaze in radical amazement at the workings at the hand of God?

Would you agree with Heschel’s claim that the way to faith leads through acts of wonder and radical amazement? What are your thoughts?

Join us as we explore these depths and experience the awe of wonder between God and man.

In the Meantime….

Remember This Torah Training Assignment:

Look for the Awe, the Wonder, the Essence of GOD within every person that you encounter this week and during this Season of Hanukah. Practice finding the awe of God within every person, within every experience and discover for yourself whether or not wisdom increases, while blocks to insight are removed.

ELUL, Deliver Us From Evil

Preserve us from the violent man

September 5th: REVISITING PSALMS 140

ELUL, OUR 29 DAY BANQUET OF PRAYER… TO HONOR THE KING OF GLORY! ELUL, The Month of The Search… Praying The Lord’s Prayer IN HEBREW & ENGLISH

There’s annotation in the Book of Psalms – (Interlinear Translation, The Schottenstein Edition by Mesorah) that is prefaced before Psalm 140 that reads, “A person who feels powerless to combat the evil and deceit that threaten to engulf them must place his trust in GOD.”

It leads with a message that tell us, “The venom of a spider is under it’s lips, Selah. They spin webs with their deceitful tongue. Which paints quite the picture of the venomous foes we deal with on occasion. That person who puts on a pretense of working with you or getting along, only to strike in silence when unseen.

At the same time, our own tongues can be so unruly, so lethal… poison can also reside under our very own lips.

On the other hand, the snakes tongue passes through a notch on their lip. This allows for the tongue to pass out of their mouth without ever having to open their mouths. Mirroring another enemy that comes against us. One whose mouth we may never see open against us, but whose tongue is quick to strike and leaves a deadly trail of lies, innuendo, accusations, that undermine and destroy reputations.

Living so out of touch with nature, can place us at a great disadvantage. We could learn so much by watching the behaviors of various creatures, they could actually improve our wisdom and knowledge of mankind. At the very least, we can see parallels.

David captures these parallels in many of his songs, such as this one, which I believe are for the purpose of heightening our observations skills in order to increase our discernment. Nature is a useful tool for this purpose.

Let’s Pray.

PSALM 140

Deliver us, O Lord (YHVH), from the evil man: preserve us from the violent man;

Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.

They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders’ poison is under their lips. Selah.

Keep us, O Lord (YHVH), from the hands of the wicked; preserve us from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow our goings.

The proud have hid a snare for us, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for us. Selah.

We said unto the Lord (YHVH), Thou art my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O Lord (YHVH).

O God the Lord (YHVH), the strength of our salvation, thou hast covered our head in the day of battle.

Grant not, O Lord (YHVH), the desires of the wicked: further not their wicked devices; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.

As for the head of those that compass round about us, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.

Cause the heads of those who rise up against me, that spread deadly poison against my career, my reputation, my family, my name, my friends, etc. let them be buried by their own poison of their own wicked devices.

10 Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.

11 Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.

12 We know that the Lord (YHVH) will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.

13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence.

Those that live to serve wicked purposes, those that lie, deceive, evade truth have no cause to give thanks to You. Those that serve you with one side of their mouth and abuse Your People with the other side, are only deceiving themselves and those that follow them.

We ask you to release their prisoners LORD. Those that have been poisoned with lies, those that have been blinded by the pretense of loyalty, kindness, integrity, honor. Reveal the mischief in their hearts, for every noose they have hung for Your People, let them fall by the trap they have set for us (Book of Esther).

Save us from the violent and treacherous kind, that lay in wait. We give praise to You LORD, for You maintain the cause of the afflicted, and uphold the right hand of the poor. The righteous give thanks unto Your Name, and shall dwell in Your Presence Forever!

AMEN


	

STRENGTHEN THE WEAK HANDS….Summary -Part 4

Continued from Part 3

KEY POINTS SUMMARY —Recap of Exodus 17 Included

17 And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of the Lord, and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink.

Wherefore the people did chide with Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink. And Moses said unto them, Why chide ye with me? wherefore do ye tempt the Lord?

And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured against Moses, and said, Wherefore is this that thou hast brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst?

And Moses cried unto the Lord, saying, What shall I do unto this people? they be almost ready to stone me.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go.

Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.

And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the Lord, saying, Is the Lord among us, or not?

Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.

And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand.

10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.

11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.

12 But Moses hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.

13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.

14 And the Lord said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.

15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi:

16 For he said, Because the Lord hath sworn that the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.

Summary…

Key Points to Remember:

  • Names and Places:
    • provide insight into the spiritual condition of the person, or places.
      • Take the time to look them up. Contrast and Compare the information to the teaching you are studying/investigating.
      • amalek =
      • Rephidim =

Exodus 1: 8 tells us that the children of Israel were made slaves because Pharaoh became afraid that they had become a threat to Egypt by reason of their numbers.

  • The disobedience of the children of Israel to the commandments of GOD, is what caused their descent into degradation.
    • The Consequence: 430 years of slavery
  • The original plan was that they settle in the “best land. the land of Goshen.” By “drifting” over into the ways and customs of the Egyptians, they opened the door to attack, i.e. slavery.
  • Tribe of Levi did not go into slavery in Egypt… they remained “dwelling in their tents” and enjoyed the protection of the anointing of GOD.

Sometimes, the best revelations you will find in scripture are right there hidden right under the, one layer down. right below the English word KJV chose to use an interpretation for the Hebrew.

prevailed vs. became mighty, became stronger,

were heavy vs. filled with Glory, had become filled with

Send Judah First…

Also, remember when the children of Israel left Egypt, they were 600K on foot, plus the numbers of the mixed multitude (Exodus 12:37). Nearly 1 million souls estimated.

“But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed (left like an army ready for battle) out of the land of Egypt.” Exodus 13:18

Exodus 12:51 reminds us that, “the LORD did bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies.”

The Book of Numbers, Chapter 10, provides information on the formation of the Tribes (in their ranks and orders) as they left Mt. Sinai, confirming Judah was assigned the lead position.

13 “And they first took their journey according to the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses. 14 In the first place went the standard of the camp of the children of Judah according to their armies: and over his host was Nahshon the son of Amminadab.”

Dan was the Rear Guard

25 “And the standard of the camp of the children of Dan set forward, which was the rereward of all the camps throughout their hosts: and over his host was Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai.”

You will recall, it was the tribe of Judah that guarded the cattle and all of the treasures and goods of Pharaoh.

Although the children of Israel were slaves in Egypt, Judah were still warriors.

Attacking from behind meant you did’nt have to fight Judah. (One tactical advantage).

Actually, even the Egyptians forces strategy was to attack from behind and drive them into the sea. GOD flipped the script, of course.

Remember, their ranks and orders from which they marched out of Egypt.

The Tribe of Dan was their rear guard. Judah was in the forefront.

By this time, EVERYONE had heard of what the GOD of Israel had done to the Egyptians, Everyone!

The GOD of Israel was internationally known.

The Spiritual Audacity of Amalek…

Of all the possible nations that could have come out against them to prove their might, prove they were better than the Egyptians, prove they were better than Israel, prove they did not fear the GOD of Israel…

It was family! Amalek, grandson of Esau, great Nephew of Jacob that came and fought with Israel in Rephidim.

Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.

Amalek came against the children of Israel when no other nation would dare.

We tend to read the scripture as if no other nations were around. Egypt was a resource for every nation around them, keeping many people alive through the famine. There’s a high probability that the nation of Amalek was even fed in the famine by the wisdom of Joseph.

Pull out your Bible Maps again. Notice that Amalek is occupying the territory that will belong to the Children of Israel, once they remember who they are in GOD!

Amalek has been living it up while the children of Israel were in captivity! They are occupying land GOD never gave them. GOD made it clear that Esau was to serve Jacob, not the other way around.

If the children of Israel make it to Sinai and receive their prophetic Word and the blessings of GOD, their next move is to come for the land GOD gave them.

The children of Israel remembered their names (Exodus 1:1). This was practically the only virtue they had left when in captivity.

What they had forgotten was, their spiritual identity, their prophecy, their ability to decree and declare a thing… they forgot how to call out in prayer, they forgot about the power of agreement, they forgot about their strength in unity…

They forgot how to operate in the power of GOD!

Your Prophecy is The Enemy’s Biggest Threat!

This is the enemy’s dilemma. “If you remember who you are, you will know that I am illegally possessing your land. If you ever get your mind back, and remember who you are in GOD, I will have to vacate your territory!”

Amalek is like that kindred spirit, that familiar spirit, that knows exactly who you are, while you may be oblivious to who they truly are! You don’t see their jealousy, their envy, their flat out audacity to provoke GOD, while they try and keep you from everything that GOD has for you.

Scripture is calling the place, Rephidim… to clue us in to the fact that this fight with Amalek is due to a lazy spiritual condition…lack of prayer which causes a weakening of the hands.

Your hands are not just a symbol of strength in prayer…

Your Hands Contain Your Strength in Prayer.

Lack of prayer leads to bickering, bitterness, argumentation, anger, contention, strife… the works!

lack of prayer – Weakens the Hands… How do I know?

And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand.

10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.

11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.

  • held up = room (H7311) to exalt, to be high, rise up
  • let down = noo-akh (H5117) to rest, allow to settle
  • prevailed = gaw-bar (H1396) to be strong or mighty, to be magnified, strengthened, to be made firm…

Raising our hands up..only looks like a surrender in the natural. In the spirit, we are pulling down strength… we are reaching up and pulling down the glory of GOD.

When we raise our hands, we are exalting GOD, in the midst of being raised and lifted up!

When we lower our hands, and keep them down at our side, we are allowing our enemies the opportunity to rest, gather their strength–against us! allowing them to settle in our land and in our territory.

In the words of Rev. Rita, “That’s not good!”

12 But Moses hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.

  • heavy = כָּבֵד kaw-vade (H3515)
    • from the root word כָּבַד kaw-vad (H3513) to become fierce, filled with glory, glorified, filled with honor, weighty (with glory), rich, respected,
      • glorious = כָּבוֹד kaw-vode (H3519) glory, honour (-able), weight, honored, abundance,
        • its root is also (H3513)

Moses hands became filled with the Glory. Moses hands became Fierce! Moses hands became filled with the weight of the Glory!

Moses hands became filled with glory, honor, respect, filled with the abundance of GOD!

Are you seeing what happened with Moses’ Hands?

All we need to know at this point is….

Do you want Your Hands filled with the Weight of the Glory!

12 But Moses hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.

  • steady = emunah (H530) em-moo-naw firm, steadfast
    • from the Hebrew root word אָמַן aman (H539) trust, faith, firm, support, belief
      • ref: (H540) אֲמַן trust
      • ref: (H541) אָמַן trust, see Isaiah 30:21 (appears only 1x in scripture) “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand (aw-man), and when ye turn to the left.”

“Moses Hands Became Filled with Faith & Trust…”

Moses hands became firm, steadfast, filled with faith and trust in GOD

12 But Moses hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.

AMEN.

13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.

  • discomfited = khaw-lash (H2522) to become weak, to prostrate oneself, to be overwhelmed
    • appears only 3x in scripture, Isaiah 14:12, Job 14:10
      • ref: use in Job 14:10 = to waste away

Did You See What Just happened?

Amalek became weak and overwhelmed through the power of Moses’ prayer!

and let’s make note of the significance of the agreement of Hur and Caleb… as well.

14 And the Lord said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.

Write this in Your Book!

14 And the Lord said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.

Rehearse this in Your Ears!

How do you think Lucifer weakens the nations?

“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” Isaiah 14:12

This happens whenever we listen to the voice that tells us not to pray!

15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah-nissi:

16 For he said, Because the Lord hath sworn that the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.

All of their moaning, and complaining brought them into a place of dryness and desolation. A place where they will never find the anointing.

And Then Came Amalek…

Anything that we hope to learn and accomplish through the Word of GOD must be born out of a spirit of prayer.

Prayer is the root of all our spiritual training. Study without prayer is futile. GOD ask that we meditate on His Word day and night, because without a dedicated personal prayer life, we can do very little for GOD and Man.

May GOD always send you a confirming word so that you will know that these words are true.

SPIRITUAL BASICS: Increasing the Anointing in Your Life…

There are a number of ways to maximize the anointing in your life. Simple and straightforward to explain, yet difficult to accomplish without a strong commitment to self-discipline.

For anyone that wants to increase the anointing over their life, they will have to equally increase their determination to die to self.

And therein lies the rub…

For those who have been in my classes, you will have heard me speak often of my bootcamp training days in the anointing (which really never stops). The biggest challenge for me was “not kicking against the pricks.” Of course, dying to self is the critical first step we all must accept, in order to place ourselves in a position to walk in the anointing.

The Yoke Shall Be Destroyed Because of The Anointing… Isaiah 10:27

I would think that most of our Pastors have labored to teach us the meaning of Isaiah’s message—learning to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.

I’m fortunate enough to have had a grandfather who owned a farm, and I can remember him caring for the animals. Leading his ox by the plow took minimal strength from my grandfather, because his ox was so adapted to the work, he practically led himself.

Obedience is a fundamental standard for qualification.

It was only when I relinquished the reigns, that the anointing was able to flow in my life. In fact, this particular spiritual character flaw is the gage I use to assess whether or not I am resisting the WORD. Being willful and resisting instruction will cause us to miss out completely on what GOD is doing.

When I see my flesh getting in the way, I just stop and obey… I simply do, whatever it is I’m trying to resist doing. When I’m paying close attention, I can catch myself and stop myself from engaging in small infractions… which in turn, prevent disobedience from escalating.

Walking in the anointing means not resisting the small directional adjustments the LORD wants to make in our walk.

Quickly Repent and Keep Moving Forward…

We each know when we are being willful, headstrong, defiant, difficult, etc. Just stop. Ask GOD for a better way. We each know enough of GOD’s Word, in order to be able to respond in a more excellent way, or at the very least, recognize the type of behavior that displeases GOD and stop.

Whenever we do what is personally difficult, but spiritually better for us and another person, that’s a small adjustment worthy of our time to make, in which we can then give honor GOD. In taking this simple small step in dying to self, you will protect the anointing on your life and on the lives of others.

Our Primary Objective, is Not to Grieve the Spirit of GOD.

Our relationship with GOD becomes the principle thing. What are we willing to do to please GOD and to preserve the flow of the anointing in our lives?

GOD calls those who serve Him, His personal possession (Ex 30:31 KJV).

Have you set yourself aside for His personal use? This would mean that we use all of our GOD given talents and abilities for Kingdom purposes.

How can you serve the Kingdom of Heaven and lift the level of holiness?

Both our strengths and our weaknesses can be used for Heavens purpose. Our strengths can be used to advance the Kingdom of Heaven, our weaknesses will help us to rely on the Spirit of GOD.

Just a few more small measures we can take, to draw closer to GOD.

ELUL, ON THE 10TH DAY OF PRAYER. Who Do You Say That I Am?

August 29th: TODAY WE ARE READING & PRAYING PSALMS 105-111

Ref: ELUL, OUR 29 DAY BANQUET OF PRAYER… TO HONOR THE KING OF GLORY!

Psalm 105:

Bless the LORD, Oh MY Soul. LORD You Are Very Great. You are clothe with honor and majesty!

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.

ELUL, I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine..

Just for a moment, let’s take a closer look at the Hebrew Word, ELUL.

Below is an excerpt from Biblehub.com; the Interlinear translation of Psalms 6:3.


In Song of Solomon 6:3, we have the beautiful verse, ah’knee luh-doe’dee vuh’doe’dee lee

meaning: I am of My Beloved and My Beloved is Mine

This Month on the Biblical Calendar is called ELUL…

ELUL, is written with four Hebrew Letters, aleph (A) – lamed (L)- vav (U)- lamed (L) (The Aleph carries an E sound). Ref: see the snapshot of Song 6:3 above, the first letter starting form the right is the Hebrew letter aleph).

Much like using an Internet acronym or text abbreviation, ELUL is a type of Hebrew acronym for the words: Ah’nee Luh-doe’dee Vuh’doe’dee Lee

The 1st letters in each Hebrew word in that phrase spell the name of the Biblical Month we are in right now… The Month of Elul

This offers us a beautiful picture with prophetic symbolism. In this we can see the connection to GOD in prayer that resides in this Month, devoting time in prayer and study, to the lover of our soul. An personal time of relationship and fellowship with GOD.

ELUL is the month on the Biblical Calendar dedicated to the search we conduct within our own soul to cleanse out all the clutter and evaluate our own actions so that we can come before GOD in earnest and rededicate ourselves to Him.

So, every time you hear yourself pronounce the word, ELUL (which I have plastered all over this BLOG, you are engaging in sweet prophetic shorthand saying, “I am my beloveds and my beloved is mine!

That’s an AMEN.

ELUL, THE MONTH OF PROPHETIC DREAMS…

BECAUSE THIS IS A MONTH SO SATURATED BY PRAYER, REPENTANCE AND DRAWING CLOSER TO GOD… THIS MAY BE YOUR DREAMIEST MONTH OF THE YEAR!

Expect MORE Dreams!

Capture those Dreams and Pray them through During this Season!

If your dreams are vivid and a tad bit alarming…write them down as well and ask for deeper revelation. You could have been given a warning dream which is awesome!

Remember what Moses, Abraham, Jacob, Hannah, Hezekiah, Abigail, Deborah, the Zelopehad Daughters, Jochebed, Miriam, Aaron, Esther, and many more… did when they were confronted with situations that they were not so pleased about?

They stepped in and had a conversation with GOD. They didn’t let problems, complications, situations, even edicts from GOD, just stand unchallenged. They negotiated a better outcome for the people!

Should any dream alarm you… Never Fear…it’s time to open up negotiations with GOD!

The dreams we love the most are wrapped in sugar and spice, right? Definitely pray those dreams through!

Attached is a journal page from the workbook. Use it to write down your dreams and take them to prayer (in your hand) with you during your consecrated prayer time.

Make Note of The Time of the Watch in Which Your Dream Occurred

Jot down the date and time of your dreams whenever possible… Write the visions and run with them! (Hab 2:2).

Hebrew Root Word Study: ratz = run, to carry speedily, to escort speedily to a destination

ya’rutz = future imperfect; meaning Your actions (whether you will or will not) determine the outcome. In Hebrew the imperfect tense leaves room for what you are prepared to do with the information or situation, VISION OR DREAM!

This is one of the things I love most about the Word…GOD left room for our choices on the pages of scripture and in the declaration of His Will…

GOD has invited You to take part… the tense is imperfect… because He is waiting for Your decision….The Choice is Yours.

May all our prayers saturate you with prophetic insight, and visions and dreams… May this be the richest Season of Dreams and visions and insight for you EVER! May you see the crooked places made straight… May you see the abundance of rain coming in the distance.. May you walk each day in divine outcomes and decisions because you have stepped into the ALL The Provisions that GOD has made for you in His Word! You Shall Dream.

Enjoy! AMEN.

PRAYER JOURNAL PAGES FOR ELUL —THE NEXT LEVEL IN PRAYER

It’s Time to Get Strategic…

For the next month (a.k.a 33 days) you are going to log each prayer request you receive…

You will set your prayer(s) in a watch of the day or night. (See handouts) We will each be making a consecration to stand that specific watch in prayer. In the beginning… you might not stand the entire 3 hour watch, or you might. You choose.

Praying the Psalms will cause your Watch to pass quickly!

All teachings on this page have their roots in The Language of Prayer

Prayer Journal Pages through 2023 available: Click Here

Read the Psalm… Pray the Psalm

Decree and Declare the Psalm out loud.

The enclosed handout contains a breakdown of the Prayer Watches. I believe you will gain more out of this exercise if you don’t focus on all the details of the prayer watch right now. We can fill in that information for you later.

For those of you who have taken this class with me before, you have a head start! For those of you who have not, just pick a watch… that you can honor and maintain through the next 33 days. Your prayer times can certainly shift based on the day of the week, that’s OK.

The important thing is to keep the commitment for prayer that you make…this is your consecration to Heaven. The flexibility is all in your hands and your words.

Write down your commitment in time to whichever prayer watch or watches you will keep. As your prayer request come in, set them / log them for the watch you have set. Jot down the key details so that you remember what you are carrying to prayer.

Can You Keep the Secrets of GOD?

When someone ask you to pray for them, you do not need to tell 10 people. Keep the confidence of the LORD. When GOD sends us someone to pray for, we want to keep their info private and hold on to them as if they are the treasures of GOD Himself. Prayer is a sacred trust and we want to handle them all in a very careful way.

Be as cryptic as you like. Only you need to know what the request is! Keep the request in a safe place (in your bible if you like) just keep them in a place of honor, respect and a secure place where you can reach them.

Prayer takes time. The objective is to watch over your prayers…not to forget the commitments we make in prayer…and hold on till the breakthrough (which could be longer than 33 days).

Because we each will be in agreement over the next 33 days, praying the psalms and the Lord’s Prayer together (in Hebrew), we are believing in the unity of the faith to carry us into this next level.

Get Ready… The power of agreement is incredible…and we shall see the manifestation of our prayers!

Enjoy! Amen.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE:

NOW MORE THAN EVER… Don’t let the giants into your land. Repent from all unforgiveness. Keep working on it, even it it’s a hard thing to do. No gossip, no lying, no strife to name a few! No banned battles… no battles. Let the captives go free!

ELUL, A DAVID KIND OF PRAYER…

Review the messages contained in the Elul series and refuse to pull your self down to a lower spiritual level. I have provided plenty of scriptural evidence to support you during this month of Elul.

Read them, meditate on them, listen to the wisdom of GOD. Obey them, especially those you find particularly difficult. Your breakthrough or the breakthrough you are seeking for others could very well be locked inside.

You will experience spiritual attack during this time, especially if you are endeavoring to cast out some giants in your land. Attacks are just a message that you are on the right track!

Press In!

There’s enough Giants in the Land Already!!! Don’t Create Your Own Giants to Fight. Be Mindful of the Words You Are Speaking.
