Answer Us, LORD…

Aneinu, in Hebrew is an urgent plea for GOD to “Answer us.” It’s a beautiful prayer that gets to the heart of the matter, especially when you’re fasting for breakthroughs.

And especially when we are…

Praying for Your People LORD, and Believing that You Will Answer their every need… Set them in sure places on High, show them the little signs in all that they do that You will go before them in every situation and circumstance, daily they shall go from strength to strength, from courageous to unstoppable, give them that glimpse behind the veil that allows that moment to witness, to see and perceive that you will be a sanctuary for them in the places where they come to. Amen.

Ezekiel 11:16

And what shall we give GOD in return?

Give Him Words of Faith to work with… start today, even with a word as small as a grain of sand, until you build up your spiritual strength. Until you become a speaking spirit again. Until your flesh is no longer running things. Until your spirit is in full control of your flesh. Until your spirit is being led by the Spirit of GOD.

This Fast is for Divine Reversal, the day the spirit overcomes the flesh.



“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” Genesis 2:7

Man is a Speaking Spirit

Gen 2:7 reads, “and man became a living soul.” There is an interpretation that is more precise… A more accurate interpretation. The verse actually says, “and man became a speaking spirit.”

ha’adam l’nef’fish kai’yah – adam (120) nephesh (5315) chai-yah (2416); The present English translation is not wrong, it’s incomplete and lacks the essence of the message.

ha’adam = the man, l’nephesh = to a soul, a being (6x) kai-yah = living, alive

“The man became a living being” is literally accurate.

Then Why am I presenting an alternate translation?

Because scripture is meant to be understood by us. It is written for us. Scripture is not just some bible story, meant to entertain or amuse. Scripture contains vital information, written for the purpose of supporting our spiritual life and purpose.

Literal interpretations are the beginning of knowledge. What else could GOD have packed into this verse, desiring us to understand?

The Power of Speech Was Not Given to Man for His Own Amusement.

Adam; Mankind/Human Beings became speaking spirits. Every living being, is created, with the purpose and potential of speaking in the spirit to the Spirit of GOD.

Let me repeat that…. Speaking in the spirit, to the Spirit of GOD

Literal interpretations never bring this fact to the forefront. They remain flat and incomprehensible to our spirit. As a consequence, we generally read, teach and hear the bible as a lovely fairy tale, rather than as a sacred text, given for the purpose of conveying spiritual matters.

Our logical, rational mind can easily hold a conversation with the literal. However, our spirit man needs to engage the Spirit of GOD in every message presented in the text of scripture.

The first language of mankind, was intended to be the language of the spirit. Whatever our individual native languages are, they are secondary to the spiritual language of GOD.

The Breath of GOD was breathed into Adam. An impartation of the Spirit of GOD. By this means, adam is created a speaking spirit, in the image and likeness of the Speaking Spirit of GOD.

Romans 8:16 says, “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit.” In order for this to happen, our spirit needs to be able to speak!

Watch Closely:

Above, I presented Gen 2:7, with the 2 Key-Words in Hebrew that I want you to keep an eye on. We are going to compare them to the same words in Gen 1:24.

“And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.” 1 Cor 15:45

Contrast and Compare Genesis 2:7 and Gen 1:24

Information you will never see until you look at the Interlinear

Gen 2:And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Let’s take a look into the Strong’s Concordance:

  • Gen 2:7 ha’adam l’nephesh chai’yah
  • adam (120) nephesh / soul (5315) chai-yah / living (2416);
  • In the case of man, we translate the words nephesh chaiyah as ‘living soul’.

Gen 1:24  And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

  • Gen 1:24 ha’ air-retz (776) nephesh (5315) chai-yah (2416);
  • In the case of the animals, we translate the words nephesh chaiyah as ‘living creature’.

As you can see, two of the exact same words are used in both verses. In Gen 1:24, nephesh chaiyah is translated, ‘living creature’. In Gen 2:7, nephesh chaiyah is translated ‘living soul’.

The question we want to ask ourselves now is, Why are the English translations so dissimilar, when the Hebrew words are exactly the same?

That’s a good question and your instincts are right. They can both be translated either as living soul or living creature.

What is the distinguishing factor between them?

First, you need to know that it was through the insight of the Onkelos, that we arrive at the understanding of the alternate interpretation of the verse, “and man became a speaking spirit”.

Adam was created with words. Adam came to life as GOD spoke the words…”and man became a living soul.” GOD created man, with such reasoning skills and understanding of words, that he responded with life, as GOD spoke to him.

Man’s soul responded to the Speech of GOD.

GOD’s speech initiated our spiritual life. Man, like every other creature and created thing in the earth became, from the spoken Word of GOD. But man, is the only part of the creative work that responded in words.

Rabbi Kleinman and I agree. “Man connects to GOD through speech”. The act of speech is expressed through prayer, torah study, praise and worship. Torah study, rises above them all, as the highest form of praise by virtue of study, care and the preservation of GOD’s Word within our spirit.

On Day 18 in Praying with Fire by Rabbi Heshy Kleinman, he adds that “One who does not pray, then, is effectively muzzling his “speaking soul”, [a.k.a., his speaking spirit].

Man and creatures alike, became living souls. But man, as the crowning achievement of GOD, became even more. Man was given the ability to transcend his animalistic instinct and nature, to become a speaking spirit in the image and likeness of GOD. If he or she so desires.

The Breath of GOD… an impartation that imbued man’s spirit with the power to speak.

Man’s spirit was created to speak.

But the choice is still ours. We can deny our spiritual life. We can choose to disconnect from the spirit and allow our soul to slip away and descend to it’s lowest possible depth, even to the level of the beast. Which some chose to do with their lives.

How Do You Care For YOUR Spirit?

Man can cultivate his spirit with prayer, torah study, praise and worship. Man can activate every gift of the spirit and thrive, and arise into the character and nature of GOD…. into the full measure and stature of Christ Jesus. If we choose to do so.

So the new question becomes, what are we prepared to do with this spirit?

Prayer only knows,

Definitions and Terminology:

Who is Onkelos?

Targum Onkelos (or Onqelos), תרגום אונקלוס‬, is the official eastern (Babylonian) targum (Aramaic translation) to the Torah. However, its early origins may have been western, in Israel. Its authorship is attributed to Onkelos, a famous convert to Judaism in Tannaic times (c. 35–120 CE). (Excerpt from Wikipedia). The Targum is the spoken version or translations of the Jewish Scriptures, a.k.a., the Tanakh.

Onkelos is said to have been the nephew of the Roman Emperor Titus or Hadrian. (Through a sister of Hadrian’s). (Of course, there’s always a historical dispute). Nevertheless, the story goes that, “the Emperor asked Onkelos to go out and find something that wasn’t worth much today but that would be invaluable in the future. Onkelos found Judaism.”

1 Corinthians 12:9-16

9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

NEW Disclosure Added: I am of the belief that any and all teachings on scripture, especially those on prayer should receive prayer before passing them along to others. For this reason, I encourage everyone who reviews these teachings to saturate each one in prayer before sharing, distributing or reproducing them in any fashion.

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. Without prayer, we learn nothing and we accomplish nothing.

May GOD always send you a confirming word.

No enemy Can Overthrow Your Anointing!…

38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought:

39 But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.

Acts 5:38-39

Gamaliel tried to warn them!

One of the most difficult lessons my Pastor had to teach me, was not to defend myself against false accusations, a mean spirit or baseless hatred.

It was a very difficult lesson to learn, and I really had to press in, with every fiber of my being, and make my own flesh bow down. Because I honestly, from birth, can not stand a bully.

I grew up with confrontational people. So, I recognize a confrontational spirit when I see one, hear one, read one, or sense one.

The older I get, the stronger my zero tolerance policy becomes for a mean spirit. So, my deliverance is still in progress, because my flesh must be kept constantly under surveillance by the spirit.

One of the things that I LOVE about GOD the most is that… He taught me,

The Spirit of GOD is a Gentleman. The Spirit of GOD will never, “put a person on blast”, try to shame or humiliate. The Spirit of GOD does not ridicule or engage in fault finding. Man does that, not GOD.

And anyone operating in the Spirit of GOD, does not do that. “You will know them by their fruit”.

GOD asks that we build up, edify and encourage each other in the body of Christ. If GOD needs to rebuke someone, He will send a Prophet to do it.

And you never know in what manner the prophets will come. I know that everybody does not believe that we continue to be in the age of the prophetic. But Christians do, and that is who I am talking to. Christians that believe, the unredacted counsel of GOD.

God says He rejects the proud. I believe Him. GOD loves the humble. I believe Him about that too. His like-minded servants, operate in the same way, with chessed – Kindness-Tender Mercies-Patience-Humility-Love-Forgiveness-Long Suffering, to name a few. These are the Secrets to our Strength. These, are why we are still here today, Undefeated and Indestructible.

It must be that way, in order to serve the LORD GOD of Heaven.


The enemy tries their best to get us to operate with their weapons. But we know the weapons of our warfare are not carnal. The minute we pick up the worlds weapons, we are vulnerable, and we have opened the door to spiritual threats.

Christ taught Matthew to, “Bless those that curse you, and pray for those that despitefully use you.” Then Matthew transferred the teaching to us.

This one teaching, can elevate the anointing on our lives to an incredible level.

We don’t need to get angry, enter into verbal disputes or banned battles of any kind. We don’t need to enter into word cursing competitions or word smith-ing confrontations.


All we have to do is humble ourselves and pray!

Our Prayer LIFE, is our enemies worse nightmare. So we pray unceasingly and give our enemies no rest. This is how we win many battles. We need a prayer life! Not a prayer minute, or a prayer day, or a prayer season….Prayer must become a LIFESTYLE!

The POWER of Humility is Formidable!

Our Humility, alerts Angelic forces, in every realm.

Our dominion over our own flesh, to resist the urge to fight back and defend ourselves, produces that miraculous substance called Faith.

Our willingness to pray for someone, like our own life depended upon it… that’s priceless.

Prayer Places the Power in Your Spirits Hands!

When we serve GOD with every loyal fiber of our being, when we meditate on His Word Day and Night, until only our spirit can speak and our flesh has to listen, will cause our speech to become saturated in the anointing….

Then Christ in us, the Hope of Glory will arise and settle the dispute!

This is when GOD, will come for His Word to perform it!

So please, by all means, continue teaching speaking, preaching, ministering the Word of GOD.

Enemies will come… they are drawn to the WORD… I believe they either miss the anointing or they long for it!

So, let your light so shine into the world!

If your speaking love, harmony, unity and the peace of GOD is disturbing them…. Oh well. The people you are sent to communicate with, will know that you were sent to them, and they need to hear the Word from you, exactly as it was given to you!

The people you were not sent to communicate with, will know that you were not sent to them, and they still need to hear the Word from you, exactly as it was given to you.

If it were not so, why are they listening?

Either way, you are on task!

Scripture speaks far better than me, and I am particularly fond of Gamaliel’s warning…

The Apostles Before the Council

24Now when the high priest and the captain of the temple and the chief priests heard these things, they doubted of them whereunto this would grow. 25Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people. 26Then went the captain with the officers, and brought them without violence: for they feared the people, lest they should have been stoned.

27And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them, 28Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us. 29Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. 30The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. 31Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. 32And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

Gamaliel’s Counsel

33When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them. 34Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space; 35And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men. 36For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought. 37After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him: he also perished; and all, even as many as obeyed him, were dispersed.

38And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: 39 But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.

40And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. 41And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.

42 “And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

To anyone found fighting against the Men and Women of GOD, I do not recommend it. Consider this a Restraining Order!

Today’s message is dedicated to someone I do not know. But, I saw your humility and kindness. I saw that you carried yourself in a way, that is in the image and likeness of GOD. I know that reflection when I see it. It is the cornerstone of the faith!

I saw your fruit! Your virtues will always draw the Anointing, and your humility will always draw the favor of GOD. I pray anyone who comes at you like an enemy, will recognize the anointing on your life, and repent, and be made whole.

Every time I even think of this, I will pray.

Be Encouraged Man of GOD…

May the anointing settle every dispute!

Rev. S. Madison

I was only able to share this with you because I was taught this by the MOST AMAZING PASTOR EVER, who made me learn it, even when I did not want to. I’m passing this on to you, because I know from experience, that if you follow it, NO ONE CAN EVER MOVE YOU OUT OF YOUR PLACE, no matter how hard they try or what lengths they go to. Stay in your position, stay humble, don’t defend yourself, stay prayerful and protect the people of GOD to the best of your ability.

GOD will handle the wicked!

I know this, like I know my own name.

God Bless You,
