Jewels From Judy

Saturday, December 09 2006

You cry to Me child to keep and hold you.  I have made every provision.  I have given you every door to walk through.  I have and I will always provide a way into My presence and out of danger and doubt.  You must believe My Word as unbelievers will not inherit My kingdom.  You must believe Me and what I tell you.

Your fear is not unfounded.  It is grounded in My Word.  Your fear is not demonic or an attack of your flesh.  Your fear is the beginning of wisdom.  Walk holy before Me.  Walk holy before your God.  Seek Me and you will find Me.  But seek the world, its pleasures, its provision, its guidance - then you will sink in the mire of it all. 

You must seek Me in all things and I will, I will, I promise I will direct your path.  But follow the ways of the world and you will find yourself lost to Me.  The choice is yours.

What are you thankful for, child?  Do you stir yourself up to know and understand how good I Am is to you?  Do you realize and ponder My Son's death on the Cross to redeem you from yourself? 

Many do not take the time to really ponder what it is that the King of the universe has done for them.  The price that was paid was costly and it was eternal.  The price was My Son's own blood poured out for you.  Do not take this as a light thing!  Do not take this for granted.  The price for rejecting Him is extreme.  The hell you think of is a fraction of what it really is and any thoughts that I will be merciful after you have rejected His payment for you is a horrific assumption on your part.  Hell is a real place, beloved. Your worst nightmare, your worse idea, your worst imagination is pale by comparison to what it really is. This is not something to gloss over, dear one!  This is an eternal decision you must make now because crying out to Me from hell will not move My heart toward you.  I will only tell you that you had the choice on earth and in this life you now live.  I will only remind you of all the opportunities that I gave you to receive My Son.  The only way [path] to Me is for you to accept Jesus as your Lord.  If you try to go through any other door or any other ?christ' other than Jesus of Nazareth, you will find yourself apart from Me for all eternity.  This is not My desire for you.  I would that none perish.  I labor to see all come to Me.  I send angels into your midst to help you.  I send My chosen sons and daughters to preach My Gospel, comfort and exhort you to come to Me.

My love for you is perfect
My love for you is complete
My love for you is full
My love for you will never fail you
My love casts out fear
My love for you is perfect

Know also that your best idea of heaven is pale in comparison to what it really is.  Where I Am is where I want you to be. Know that the resources I have waiting for you to build My kingdom are without end.  There is nothing missing, nothing broken in My provision. You have only to accept it.  If you think I do not hear you, realize that My provision has already been given, so you must ask yourself if you have appropriated it.

Do you know what would make Me thankful?  If you would accept My Word as truth and that you would believe all my promises really are, "Yes!" and "Amen!"  I would be thankful to you, child, if you would accept all My promises and walk confidently in them.  I would be thankful for you to have thankful heart.  A thankful heart will move Mine.

Beloved,

Please bear with me as I set the stage for this important word to the church from the Lord.  If you prefer to just read this exhortation, feel free to scroll down.

Last month I was invited to Uganda to speak, but before stepping out in faith to get my airline ticket I asked the Lord a question.  "Lord, if this is indeed You who are sending me, what would You have me say to the people there?"  He answered, "I will tell you when you are on your way." 

As we know, God's ways are not our ways!  (See Isaiah 55)

On the flight between London and Uganda I awoke from my slumber and because the subject at one of the conferences was ?discipleship' I asked, "What does this mean exactly, Lord, to be a disciple of Christ?"  I had my thoughts on it, but I wanted to hear what He had to say.  While I was still lying down, He began to speak to me.  I asked Him if I needed to sit up and write down what He was saying or if I would remember it all.  I immediately recognized this foolish question was rooted in the laziness of my flesh.  Of course I had to get up and write it down!  We know what the Lord spoke to the prophet in the Word:

Habakkuk 2:2 Then the LORD answered me and said: Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so that a runner may read it.

I repented of my impudence, sat up, retrieved my notebook, and turned on the TV screen in front of me to check the status of my flight.  It was 12:52am and the map revealed the plane was just then flying into Africa!  So it was at the precise moment of my entry to this great continent that the Lord spoke this to me.  As I shared it at the conferences, churches and schools, it became a catalyst for more prophetic words to come forth specifically for our Ugandan brethren. All glory and honor to our King! 

This exhortation about what it means to be a disciple of Christ edifies the entire church body and not just one country or even continent. This is for the Disciples of Christ. This is for you.  This is for me.

May the reader run with it in Jesus' name.  Amen 

Forever in His merciful arms,
Judy

To Be A Disciple of Christ

October 24, 2006

"To be My disciple means to walk as I walked - to be as I Am.  First and foremost - I Am Love!  I love you and I desire you to walk in the type of love that I displayed and modeled for you.  (See John 8:12; 1John 4:7-21, 5:1-5)

"The Only way I could walk in that love as the Son of Man was to spend time with My Father. I loved Him 1st.  I love My Father and He loves Me.  We are separate [individuals] but we are One.  As the Son of Man I faced many opportunities to rightfully lash out at people, but the love that I had - that love that came from My Father - overrode it [the temptation to sin in anger].  The times you read in Scripture that [gives the impression that] I was angry - when I spoke the ?woes' to the Scribes and Pharisees and when I cleansed the temple - were from the love of the Father. It was not anger as much as it was sorrow.  I know there is much debate on this and I do not bring you a new doctrine - I bring you My heart cry.  (See Isaiah 53:3-5; Mark3:5; John 3:35-36; Matthew 22:37-40; Mark 12:28-34; John 2:14-17; Psalm 69)

"Love one another as I have loved you."  (See John 5:19-27)

"Many cry out to see Me - to see My face and I tell you the truth - when you look at one another you are looking at Me. (1 Corinthians 3:16)

"Do not look to those who are obviously [following] Me to see Me, though you may have to start there to grasp this concept, but look to the least of the brethren.  What you do to them, you do to Me.  What you do with each other, you do with Me.  What you do for them, you do for Me.  (See Matthew 25:40)

"Understand that I desire for you to care for one another.  One person cannot take care of the whole world.  You can in no way fathom how many are alone with no help." (Suddenly I saw the entire world and as it turned I could see millions, maybe billions of hurting people in that flash of a second of time.) 

"But if you will touch people around you in My name and with My love, then if those you touch with My love will turn and in kind and touch those around them with My love, and those then also touch others who are around them with My love - THEN MY LOVE WILL BE LIKE A FIRE SPREADING THROUGH A DRY FOREST.  (See Matthew 3:11-12 and Luke 4:18-19; 12:49)

"Judy, do you see those lights down there?"  I looked out my window and saw the lights He spoke of far below us.  "We are over very difficult [barren] land, yet people live here.  It is the Sahara Desert. Even out here - the lights are connected."  I looked and the lights below looked like one long thin caravan with darkness surrounding it as far as the eye could see.

"I Am the light of the world and in Me there is no darkness.  As My disciples reflect the light of My love, they ignite others to reflect the light of My love.  (See Matthew 5:14 -16; 6:22; John 8:12; 9:5; 1 Corinthians 4:5; 2 Corinthians 4:6; Ephesians 5:5-16)

"Do you see?

"I Am a Consuming Fire!  But I do not bring a destructive fire.  I bring a fire that burns off the ropes and sets men, women and children free.  My fire is My passion for My church.  I burn with love for My church.  Touch each other with this pure and holy fire.  Touch each other with this pure and holy love. IGNITE those around you with holy fire.  (See Hebrews 12:29; Daniel 3:21-28; Acts 1:3-8; 1 John 4:18)

"Be careful not to allow the enemy of your soul, Satan, to manipulate you into perverting My love.  My love sets people free.  My perfect love destroys fear.  My love covers you.  My love will never lead you into immorality.  Be aware!  Satan will use your own desires to sin against Me.  You must be wise!  You must be diligent!  You must stand guard! (See John 8:32; Galatians 5:13-26; Colossians 3:5-10; 2 Timothy 1:6-7; 1 Peter 5:8; Hebrews 12:1; Matthew 10:16)

"To be My disciple means to be like Me.  I Am like My Father.  We are holy!  Be holy as I Am holy and IGNITE those around you to be holy.  I would not say this if it were not possible. This can only be done as you are led by My Spirit.  So follow your Guide.  Heed your Teacher.  You were created in Our image.  (See Matthew 5:48; John14-15; Ephesians 1:4; 5:27; Jude 20-25; Genesis 1:26)

"Come, Follow Me."  (See Matthew 4:19; 19:21)

Beloved, I do not use hype to advance My Kingdom.  It is not by your might and power, it is by My Spirit that My kingdom is advanced.  All the shouting ends up sounding like a clanging gong in My ears.  You may be able to manipulate people to give to your cause, but My hand will not move if you operate under this demonic spirit.

If you do not have love for My people, there is no choice but to use hype.  You can shout until you turn blue, but you will not move Me.

My heart is for the lost and downtrodden.  If your heart seeks position and accolades of man, then you are building your own kingdom and not Mine. I tell you now to repent of this wickedness.  (See Matthew7:21-23)

My kingdom is built on the lives I and I alone restore.  My kingdom is built on love and mercy and justice and righteousness.  Self-exaltation is the sin Lucifer committed in My presence.  Do you want his reward?  Do you want [to join] his sentence?

My Son came down and by example showed you how My heart was moved.  I revealed My plan clearly.  You may wonder why a perfect God would choose the downcast, the lonely, the prostitute, the orphan, the widow, those found on the highways and byways.  I will tell you clearly.  It is because they are completely aware that they are unworthy of Me and in that knowledge they know Who is worthy of the glory and honor and praise when they are lifted up.  They are not tempted to puff up as one would who is self-reliant and seemingly has the world in his pocket.  They know they need help.  I can fill that hunger. 

I do not need hype.  I need obedient children; I need loyal friends to carry out My will and not beat My sheep.

Fruit comes from a source - it comes from what image it is made in. In whose image are you made, child?  Are you made in the image of your heavenly Father or do you look more like the father of worldly materials? 

What will last?  What will endure?  What will remain?  Is it the gold of this world?  Do you realize the value of gold is reduced to street rubble in heaven?  It is so valueless that you will only see it as a road to walk on.

What is the fruit of your heavenly bank account?  What are the dividends? What interest rate do you earn from your heavenly account?  Don't think that you can just throw money at Me, child!  I cannot be bought!  Do not try to buy Me or you may lose everything you have.  I know the motivation of your heart at all times and in every situation.  You cannot hide your thoughts from Me.  Do not give out of guilt as that does not honor Me.  Do not give out of obligation as that is a divided heart.  I do not seek those with divided hearts to fund My kingdom.  I look for those with pure hearts and pure hands.  I look for those with who will give without looking for honor or credit or attention from man.  I look for those who will give not for what they can get out of Me, but for what they can do to bless My children.

My children are My image on this earth.  My children are the extension of My love.  My children know My voice - they learn My voice.  The god of this world has darkened many eyes and dulled many ears, but if you long to see Me and you long to hear the voice of your heavenly Father ask Me for the eye salve that will heal your eyes and I will freely give it.  Ask me to flush the mud from your ears and I will cleanse them with My Living Water.  I will teach you My voice, My child.   Hearken to Me!  I promise I will hearken to your cry.  I will send angels speedily and dispatch them for your aid.  My promises are "Yes!" and "Amen!" 

Do you understand what I Am saying to you?

Do you understand that I desire to bless you with a fruitful life?  But child, you must ask yourself if the fruit you are bearing is from My Spirit or from this world.

I do not rate or grade your sin.  No, I do not give one sin more punishment than another.  To Me gossip will separate you from Me as quick as murder. 

So I ask you, what fruit do those around you enjoy from the garden of your life?

In the love of the Father,

Judy

Why Are We Christians?

Is it by grace that we're saved or is it what we do?

Let us discover God's character and person NO MATTER WHAT!

Let us discover the truth, the way, the life - Jesus - NO MATTER WHAT!

As far as God is concerned - the pressure is off.

Why?

Is it because of His law?

Is it because of His Liberty?

Don't pursue the idol - pursue God!

GOD WANTS YOU - NO MATTER WHAT!

There is a fork in the road - which way do you want to go?

Old way -------- The Law of Linearity, pressure to do what you should be doing, live by rules, do things (read the Bible, pray, serve, etc.) to get results - to get God's attention and approval. Do things 'right' so you can be right in God's sight. This way looks for ways to get things from God. This way never delivers. You have to do A to get B. Draw near to seek God's hand not His presence. If you are looking for what you can get out of God - blessings - START OVER! This makes Christianity about what you do and not what God's done

New way------- Law of Liberty! Hope! It is a desire that values God's presence over His blessings. This way knows that it is Christ who set us free from the bondage of sin and the law. This is a ?come to God dirty and let Him clean you' invitation. This is a Father/Child relationship of trust and love and DEEP and RICH intimate knowledge of one another. On this road we draw near to God because we want to know His heart. This is a ?better hope' not necessarily a better life ($, fun, worldly gain). Having God in your life is what makes life better! Then we desire to do right because we KNOW the Father's heart and we want and desire what the Father wants and desires.

Let's ask ourselves:

Why am I a Christian?

What am I living for?

Are we really loving or are we trying to get our own way? (With God and/or man)

What must I do to be a better Christian?

Hebrews 7: 18 For on the one hand there is an annulling of the former commandment because of its weakness and unprofitableness, 19 for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God. NKJV

18 The former way of doing things, a system of commandments that never worked out the way it was supposed to, was set aside; 19 the law brought nothing to maturity. Another way - Jesus! - a way that does work, that brings us right into the presence of God, is put in its place. MB

Drawing near to God is the better hope. Jesus is the better hope! The Galatians got into bondage by trying to get to God by obeying the Law of Moses - the Law of Doing and they were deceived. They hadn't even been raised in the law and yet they we corrected by Paul who said they had been bewitched! (See Galatians 3) The word tells us the law was weak and unprofitable. It was given to teach us that we needed Christ to save us because we can't save ourselves through obedience to the law. If we break only one little part we are guilty of breaking all of it!

Jesus fulfilled the Law and all its requirements. He writes His word on our hearts so that we will never separate from Him. So when we try to live by the Law of Moses we are saying to God that Jesus' sacrifice isn't enough and we need to fulfill it. You can see why Paul came down so hard on the Galatians! Romans 6 is a great chapter to read about this too. Here is a snip-it: 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. 15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!

This is because Christ set us free from sin and to go back to it would be like placing yourself in jail! You would be placing yourself in the enemy's lair! To walk like that would be like going through life in a coma. We can't take both roads! We can't live with Christ and with rules of the law. We are used to being ruled, but we can't put new wine in old wineskins.

This will set you free!

John 8:31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." 36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed."

Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

We can come to God free! Jesus fulfilled the requirements. He did the work. The selfish life is behind us because we have been given the awesome gift of knowing God's heart! We can throw our checklists away and live a life of grace and peace and love in Christ Jesus!

Do people see grace and peace and love when they look inside of you?

This is a teaching that came from my notes taken over the past couple of Sundays along with some thoughts from me. I thought it would bless you and encourage you in your walk with Christ. In all that we do, may we do it to glorify God the Father. Be blessed as you are a blessing to me!

Love in Christ

You are coming into the 7th year and I Am opening doors that no man can shut.

When I open a door you must walk through it because once the time for it to be opened to you has passed, it will be closed by Me and will not be opened again.

This is the season to obey immediately

This is the season to rebuild the walls that stand in ruins

This is the season to be released into your destiny

This is the season of grace

My grace is indeed sufficient enough.  Be comforted in My love for you.  I will never drop you.  I will never call you out on a limb and not support it.  I know it looks scary, but know I can easily hold you up in all I call you to do and all I call you to be.  Believe.

It is My desire to see you soar.  I Am the wind beneath you.  I Am what lifts you into the places you cannot go on your own.  Take flight My dove!  Take flight!

It is the Spirit of Truth whom the world cannot receive that will lift you to new heights in Me.  Fly in the power and authority of My Truth!

Ask of Me, Beloved.  Ask of Me what you need, but do not doubt.  Do not be tossed in your minds to and fro as I cannot bless doubt and unbelief.  Many believe their own doubting hearts more than believe Me and My words. Do you love Me?  Keep My commandments.  Those who are Mine hear the Word of God and do it.

I came to bring a sword.  Allow it to cut the death of unbelief from your heart.  Use My sword to break through the chains that keep My church captive.  Cut the iron bars that imprison the lost.

Heed this warning:  My sword is not to be used to mutilate the very ones bought with My very own blood!  Skillful use of My sword is vital to bring healing and not wounding.  As My Word says, "Wounds from a friend can be trusted."  This is because a wound from a friend relieves the pressure like a boil that has been lanced. But one who takes My words and uses them to harm and condemn will stand before Me and give an account for every careless word!  Repent now and ask Me to teach you to skillfully wield My sword.  There are times to war and you are to use My sword to destroy only when fighting the enemy.  You fight not against flesh and blood but against powers of darkness.  My Word brings healing to mankind and destruction to the spiritual rulers.  Be sure to separate the two.

Learn this skill; then I can take you to new heights in Me.  As you wait in expectation, you can mount up with wings of eagles and soar to new heights.

Do not forget that it is I, the Lord God Almighty, who is the wind beneath your wings.  It is I who sustains your flight.  I Am the wind beneath your wings.  Do not forget this.

You Have A Destiny!

I have called you to the nations* to a destiny and I am asking you now, Will you embrace your destiny?

This is a time of new beginnings and you are called for such a time as this.  Know that you were chosen to be in this day and in this time.  There is a vast cloud of witnesses who beckon you to move forward in the power of My Resurrected Son. 

Do not come to Me with your list of all your inadequacies and tell Me why you are unable to line up your will with Mine.  I already know you are unable and that is precisely why I called you!  You must know that what is impossible with man is possible with Me.  I Am that I Am!  I Am sufficient for all you need.  Do not say any longer that you are unable. That, dear child, has already been established! 

Will you will lay everything down and pick up your mantle, continually wear it, and go where I send you?  I will give you everything you need when you need it if you will obey My promptings.  As you obey, the provision you need will already be waiting for you on My path, so do not look at what you do not have as you begin to step out in your destiny.  Have faith and know that I will provide for you.  Shed the garment of doubt and clothe yourself in My mantle.

Will you honor Me by quickly coming into agreement with Me when I ask you to do something? Know that I start with small things.  As you comply with My Spirit in the small things, I can move you into the bigger purpose that I have.  Do not despise small beginnings, dear one.  I start there with everyone.  Even Jesushad small beginnings.

I have called you to a destiny; will you embrace your destiny?

You ARE More Than A Conqueror!

Will you honor Me by looking at what I can do instead of what you can do?

Beware of the spirit of fear and timidity.  Will you embrace the call on your life or not?  If you embrace fear you cannot also embrace your destiny of faith in Me.  When you embrace fear you are proclaiming that I am not faithful!  You may not realize this is what you are doing, but it is.  Faith cannot exist where fear resides.  You must exterminate fear.  My love fights fear!  My love conquers fear!  I set before you a choice. Choose faith or fear. I will give you the answer, choose faith! 

Fear expects Me to be unfaithful and to break My promises to you.  Fear expects the worst before it has happened.  Faith will cause you to see the miraculous through the eyes of your heart first and then you will see the miraculous right before your very eyes.  You have to see it first by My spirit, then you will see it in the natural.  You can attract what you fear to yourself, or you can attract to yourself what you hope for.  The choice is yours. I give an established warning: Guard your heart with all diligence for out of it the issues of life flow.

Know that I desire for you to expect the best before it happens.  I desire that when you see a storm approaching, you will expect Me to move on your behalf.  Doubt your doubts!  I have called you to be MORE than a conqueror.  What this means is that you can know you have won the battle before ever entering it.  The Greater One lives in you.  You ARE more than a conqueror because I have already won! 

Seeds Of Destiny Produce Fruit!

I have planted in you seeds of destiny.  Will you allow the Living Word to water those seeds?  Will you allow the Light of My Salvation to shine through you until those seeds grow to bear fruit?

My dear one, do you not yet know that I desire for you to have an entire orchard of trees that overflow with fruit?  There is sweet succulent fruit to be grown, harvested and enjoyed.  All of the harvest will be brought to My banqueting table. My banner over you is love. 

In our Father's ever-increasing agape,
Judy

*Nations - ethnos, peoples, lands.  We all have a sphere of people where the Lord has given us His power and His authority.  Please pray and ask the Lord to confirm to whom you are called and where you are to go in Jesus' name. Wisdom is proved right by her children.  God bless and keep you.  jb

You cannot go back the way you came.  The road is closed.  Access is denied.  You must take the high road home.  You are to take the new road.  Drink the New Wine.  The old wine had its day and its purpose.  But this day has a new song, a new sound, a new direction, a new path. 

The path I have you on is narrow.  Enter the gate.  Remove the vines and the brush and the obstacles.  The enemy has had a season of growth and all of that must be cut away.  It's time for pruning so the gate of My presence can be seen. 

Come in! Come in! Come in!

Come in and see the glory I have in store for you.  Don't look back and revisit the wounds of the past for they will no longer be there --unless you choose to re-open them. 

Let Me pour the new wine.  Drink deeply!  Drink deeply,Child! 

Spoken at "Where Eagles Gather", Kremmling, Colorado

The Setup:

We were singing the song during worship, Freedom Reigns:

Where the spirit of the Lord is - there is freedom
Where the spirit of the Lord is - there is freedom
If you're tired and you are thirsty - there is freedom

Freedom reigns in this place
Showers of mercy and grace
Falling on ev'ry face
There is freedom

Jesus reigns in this place
Showers of mercy and grace
Falling on ev'ry face
There is freedom

All week, and specifically this morning, I have been praying for Breakthrough to come through our church to our community, city, state, region and country.  Breakthrough is what is needed for the days to come. (There is another word that explains breakthrough further. I received it yesterday entitled; I Am the Pearl of Great Price. Freedom Raining and Breakthrough coming are words given in unity.)

As we were worshiping I saw golden raindrops coming down onto everyone in the sanctuary. I felt it was a rain of anointing to bring deliverance.  The Lord required me to discreetly report this to our pastor, but I am not so sure how clearly I delivered the message.  It was such a holy moment and there was such a strong sense of urgency from the Lord.  The presence of God was so intense that I was shaking all over. 

The following word is what the Lord spoke to me as worship concluded. What is really fascinating is that the message preached was about releasing the baggage we carry and specifically breaking addictions.  I had most of this written by the time he spoke, so it was a sweet confirmation of the presence of God in the house.

The Word from the Lord:

The golden rain that you see is the rain of My freedom to break addictions.  Freedom rains when I AM comes into the room.  Freedomreigns when I AM comes into the room!

This is not to say that I am not always with you, as I Am, however, thisrain doesn't fall in the same place continually.  When you feel your time with Me has been dry, it is because the ground of your soul is parched.  I come with My rain to give you a chance to get replenished. Do not allow the rain to run-off and be wasted.  When I rain on you that is your moment of deliverance, if you will but allow My Spirit to reign!

I want you to be so fully washed by My Living Water that you will have an abundance to share with others.  So let the rain of My presence come and refresh you.  I want to rain My glory down on you, but you must allow Me to reign in your life. 

If you think your plan to get yourself out of the bear-trap will work, then I suppose you will have to wrestle with it further. The addiction that has been sprung on you has been set by the enemy. He has seized your life and is relentless.  That trap you are in is daunting and deadly to you.  It has a hold on you and you are powerless against it.  That struggle seems so pointless when I AM stands next to you ready to open it for you. 

Hebrews 12:1  Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

Until you throw off  your pride and allow Me - the God of the universe to open the trap, you will remain ensnared in it.  Can't you see that My ability to spring you from the trappings of addictions are so much higher, so much greater, so much more efficient and thorough than any and all efforts you can make?

You even deny your own condition.  You lay there with the jaws clamped tightly around you and yet you tell Me and others around you that there is no trap - it doesn't exist.  Yet everyone  can see that it has a hold of you. Those trying to help bring you freedom are shamed to scorn.  The truth is, child, you are in a trap of your own making and there is no way out in your own strength.  BUT DO NOT DESPAIR! 

Allow Me to open the trap, heal your wounds and reconstruct the missing parts.  Your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear.  I will rise with healing in My wings.  Then you will walk in My freedom.  You will walk in My grace.  You will walk in My glory.

Arise, shine for the glory of the Lord rises upon you and My glory will appear over you!

Heb 4:16  Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Forever in God's grace,

You live in a day and in a time of great release and breakthrough.  Declare and decree over your city for Breakthrough to come

Open your doors all you gates and let the King of glory come in!  Pray for the Lord of hosts to send His angels that gather to remove the stumbling blocks from your heart.  Pray for the tares to be pulled out of your soul.  I want all of you, not parts of you.  Do not section off your life to Me as that is intolerable!  I do not want parts of you anymore than you want parts of Me. 

The fire in My eyes is My passion for you and I will not share you with the gods of this world or the desires of your flesh. Allow the Gatherers to remove the temptations, the stumbling blocks of lawlessness from your hearts and cast those tares into the fire.  I am looking for those with clean hands and a pure heart.  Do not think you can touch others with unholy thoughts and unholy hands and I will just look the other way.  The tares must be gathered from your heart and burned.  You are positioned at the gate.  Will you let the King of glory in to rule and reign?  Will you be part of the greatest move of My Spirit yet to be seen?

I will not share My glory with flesh.  There is no more time to play games - the hour is late! 

Will you allow Me to have my way?  Yes?  Then allow Breakthrough to come and for the gathering angles to remove the tares.  Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.

I Am the Pearl of great price.  Will you give all you have to follow Me?

See Matthew 13:41-44

Forever in God's grace,
Judy Bauman

Child, the sorrow of the pruning you are enduring is but for a short time; joy comes in the morning.  Know that though it is painful, it is necessary. You are coming into a new season in Me.  Think of a fruit tree that has one branch that is growing much faster than any of the others.  The tree becomes out of balance.  A branch that has had exponential growth in comparison to the rest of the tree must be pruned back so the rest of the branches can catch up.

This is not pruning of dead branches, though I do that; this pruning is of a living and healthy branch which bore fruit you enjoyed.  That is why the pain is so intense, but it is not unto death. That which has been cut away will be for My glory.  There is a shock that happens to a tree when it is pruned and this is what you are experiencing. But remember, the tree gets over the shock and grows to bear much more fruit. Your branches are to bring healing to many nations.  What I gave you during the prior season will never be taken from you.  I have planted you by the Living Water and I want you to drink deeply during this time of recovery. It is My desire for your roots to grow deep and strong in Me.  By My hand a lance has skillfully been cast to cut the cords that once bound you - the ropes are no longer there! You've been set free! Rejoice in that!  Your roots are healthy and free to grow!  Learn of Me as My ways will never lead you astray. I say again, take time to drink deep from the well of My presence.  I will never turn you away and I will never set a limit on how deep you can go in Me.  You are free to go as deep as you desire.

The enemy sought to dishearten you and bring you to your knees.  But that is right where I wanted you!  His desire is to see you embrace the wounds of being cast aside - he's trying to regain entry, but I have strengthened your heart in this past season. Your heart is compelled to embrace My cross.  That is because I have injected it with My DNA and you are forever changed.  Because you have submitted to Me, I have given you the wisdom to resist his deceptions.

Know that you are no longer an orphan.  You are mine.  You belong to Me!  Everyone could abandon, reject and cast you aside, but My favor and My love will always bring you back to My side where there is fullness and life.  At My side is where you can rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory!   You knowthat you belong to Me and are a child of the King.  You are heir to all I have, so walk humbly but confidently in that truth. 

Release the pain of the pruning to Me and I will rise up with healing in My wings. I will cover you in My pinions.  Come up to the cleft of the Rock and rest in My presence. Mount up with wings as eagles.  Yes, use the wings I have given you to soar with Me.  I am calling you higher!

In His ever-increasing agape,
Judy

My angels have been sent to dance upon you and press out the new wine.  Will you lie down on the threshing floor?  Will you trust Me and submit?  They will collect the wine that comes when you are pressed, put it in a gold goblet, and pour it out upon you as Golden Living Water.  This is a heavenly water that is also oil.  In heaven, oil and water mix very well.  It is a divine substance that cleanses, renews, and anoints.  I will give this Golden Living Water to all who are willing to be emptied and pressed.

Call My bride, Judy, call out to My church and tell her that in this dance, I am providing the desired beauty treatments for her wedding. I am providing all the desired elements to bring out her beauty.  My bride shall be pure and holy and blameless in My sight.  She shall be readied!  Prepare the way of the Lord!  Prepare the way for your Groom!  Allow Me to preen and prepare you, My beloved.  

The Scripture He gave me to confirm the oil and water mixing in heaven:

1 John 5:7  For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
8  And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.  KJV

As the Body of Christ submits itself to the leading of My Spirit, it will find itself broken in My presence.  In My presence your agenda will die, your desires that don't line up with Me or My ways will die, your lack of focus on what is important will die.

If you will submit to My correction and My crafting in your life, you will find yourself humbled to the ground.  You will fall to your face and cry for Me to purge you of your own flesh.

As you lay down your life for Me, you will be raised in Me. You fell because of sin, but you rise because of My love and passion for you.  The fire of My love will burn all that hinders. 

Yes, you will prophesy My love and My will.  You will lay down all that hinders and be raised in My strength and My power. You will give light in dark places - even when the lights go out.  When the lights go out, you will find a candle to light your way.  I will never leave you in darkness.  I will not leave you as you are in your ways.  I will come and rescue you and you will be broken no more.

You will rise up in My power
You will rise up in My grace
You will rise up in My authority
You will rise up in My joy
You will be carriers of My fire
You will be one of those whose ways bring light into dark places

This can all happen because you allow Me to humble you and break your heart.  This can happen because you lay your agenda down.  Rise up in My love and be broken no more.

As I pour out My words and impartation of My heart to those who hear My voice, I issue a warning.  Do not allow your hearts to be elevated into pride because of the abundance of My revelation being poured out upon you.  Many of My own that were much more worthy than you longed to hear Me as you do and didn't.  You hear Me the way you do because of the urgency of the day you live in and what is to come.  I need My remnant built up or surely their hearts will fail them.  I do not say this for you to be influenced by a spirit of fear.  I do not want you to shrink back or walk timidly.  I have given everyone who is called by My name the ability to see through the darkness. Some walk in the fullness of My light and some still yet need to understand.  I am pouring out understanding.  I am pouring out words of wisdom.  This is not to be confused with a word of wisdom, no, this is more than that.  I want you to walk continually in My wisdom and understanding.  I want you to continually seek My counsel before you ask for My might.  I want you to KNOW ME! 

Knowledge is worthless without knowing Me first.  This requires intimacy.  I want you to walk in the light of the fear of the Lord which will always bring you back to wisdom.  I have a circular way.  I Am Everlasting-to-everlasting.

As you walk in My Spirit, your flesh will want to puff up.  This is why I allowed Paul to have 'a thorn in his side' so that he would humble himself before Me.  I gave him great revelations.  I am giving you great revelations, but you must walk in and cloak yourself in humility. 

Do not think more highly of yourself than you ought!  Give Me all the glory.  My glory will destroy you.  This is why I will not share it with flesh.  A good and faithful Father will not give to His children that which would bring them destruction.  The ways of man will bring destruction to your life.  Seek Me!  Seek Me!  Seek Me!

My ways bring life and life everlasting.  My ways bring hope. My ways bring righteousness.  My ways bring justice!  Yes, I told Paul, "My grace is sufficient," however, My grace is not higher than My justice.  Righteousness and justice are the foundations of My very throne!  Everything is built upon My foundation.  Righteousness is what you are clothed in.  Justice is your walk.  Walk in My justice and then My grace will rest on you and My glory will be seen around you.  This is why so many do not walk in My power.  My ways are not your ways, child.  Walk in My justice and you will walk in My power.

These words came at a pretty rapid pace this week (July 17-21, 2006) during training at IHOP-ATL (International House of Prayer), and their succession was intriguing. Each one builds on the revelation of the one before it.  In the first word, Walk Through the Veil, Billy Humphreywas teaching about the Father Heart of God when Walk Through the Veil was 'downloaded' to me. I mention this pastor by name because I feel I need to give what I call 'the fire of Billy' some credit in creating the atmosphere for the Holy Spirit to flow.  Of course it is the fire of God - the intense love of God - in him that I give glory.  To be sure, it is a lot of fun to be in the room when the heat is on!!! What was pretty cool was that the Lord asked me to close my eyes and listen to his words as if the Father Himself were speaking to me.  It was so awesome!  The Father's love is so awesome!!!  The words just washed over me.  His teaching was actually a 'post-op' from something I went through on this very subject a few weeks back. I was thrilled that my appointment went well with the Great Physician! The word ?Master Surgeon' was given at that time. If you are having trouble in this area I want to extend hope to you. 

The other 3 words came at various times in the week.  Again - remember it is from the love of God for you that these words come. He adores you! 

Blessings, 

Judy

Walk Through the Veil - 7/17/06  11:30am

Do you want the veil removed?  You've cried out to have this 'thing' removed - this thing that keeps you from coming to Me. Then you have to get real with Me, about how you really feel about your earthy father.  Until you let Me peel that pain away, you will never have intimacy with Me.  Do you really want to experience My heavenly realm?  You have to get real about what has come between you and your natural dad.  Getting real will remove the veil.  You must open your spirit to Me. You must open your soul to Me. Your independence doesn't protect you.  Your independence is keeping the veil taut.  Trust Me in this and see the freedom that comes to your soul. Come out of the façade.  Come let Me Father you.

Love is the Issue!

My love is the highest experience you can have in all creation. Be loved by Me.  There is no other thing you need more in life than My love.  You ask, "What must we do?"  I tell you what I told My disciples, "Believe."  Believe what?  Believe My love for you.  Believe My love is complete.  My love is full.  My love will encompass you like nothing else.  Do I need servants?  No, I need My bride to take her place by My side.  I never placed you under My feet.  As I took a rib from Adam's side - I take My bride to be by My side.  I was pierced in My side for My love for you.  I wash you with My water; I wash you with My sacrifice. 

I have chosen to marry one who has been loved by another. Come and take My hand and I will give you My purity.  I will comfort you, My bride.  No more will the horses of darkness haunt your dreams.  Their hooves will be silenced.  I will stop them in their tracks.  I will stop them from bringing their shame upon you. 

I Am is your Husband and I will stop at nothing to bring you to Myself.  I love you and I will wash you and cleanse you from your past.  Give to Me all of your shame and the reproach of your youth.  I have betrothed you.  I will take you as a virgin.  I will marry you and you will be Mine forever!  Bare yourself to Me and I will take you into Myself.

I will tell you again and again until you really know in your heart that I love you.  I love you.  I love you!

Authority of a Queen

I have given you the authority of a queen.  The words that you speak must be words that are thought out and deliberate. It is My desire that you declare and decree My will on earth as in heaven.  My church is My bride.  My church is My queen.  She doesn't understand the authority that I have released to her through My sacrificial love for her.  I gave her My power; I gave her My authority. I promise My beloved that I AM is with her to the end of the age.  You are her!  You, Beloved!  You are My beautiful bride.  Men, get a grip as to what the Lord your God is saying and what this means.  Don't get weird on Me.  I desire to impart My love to you, but I cannot do that if you fail to understand this mystery. (See Ephesians 5:32)  I have called you to go to the nations, but if you don't understand that I send you with the authority of being My queen, you will not capture the hearts of the lost.  It's My love that captivates. Let My love first captivate you.

Run the Race

Don't settle for a false finish line; settle only for My direction and pace.  When I lead you into a place of pain for your flesh, know that it must be worked out of you for you to walk in the fullness of My power and authority.  Don't look to the approval man gives or it will distract you from My path.   My path is narrow and few find it.  Too many are more concerned about what man in saying not what I Am says.

Do you really want more of Me?  Am I really your passion? Then throw off all that hinders you.  Run the race set before you and give me all the shackles that are keeping you from finishing in My fullness and My grace. Look at Me.  Look at My love for you.  It will never fail you.  My love will sustain you for the race.

An Exhortation From The Father's Heart To Yours: The Hour Is Late

Will you come in? Can you not hear My voice beckoning you into the Holy of holies? Do not you understand that I already know why it is you do not want to come into where I Am sits? Everything is exposed in here. You prefer to come to church and go through the niceties and do not realize that you are only in the courtyards; you have yet to come into My presence. You want to sing songs that sound good. You do not want to draw too much attention to yourself. You do not want to turn anyone off. You want it to last just only so long because you have places to go and people to meet, and yet you leave the one Who ransomed your heart from destruction standing there empty-handed. You fool yourself to think I do not see everything from where I sit. The difference is that when you come into My Throne Room of Grace, you seewhat it is in you that does not belong. The real reason you do not come because you know you must look at what is really going on inside of yourself.

Do you not see that My desire for you is to be rid of the chains that bind you? Do you not know that I love you with a love that is deeper than anything you can imagine?

I desire to bring you to the King's banqueting table! You do not see that you have slop on your plate. Can you see that taking sin into yourself is like eating rubbish? Why would you want to eat garbage when I have a feast prepared for you? You are holding on to hidden sin and it keeps you from My best - it keeps you from the Secret Place of the Most High. You refuse to come into the Holy Place with Me because you will not release these insidious desires of yours. You want to lie and cheat; greed runs amuck in those I call My own. Listen Child of Mine, you do not hide a thing from I Am. You only hide it from yourself. Everything is going to be exposed in the Day. Everything is to be revealed by the fire that burns in My eyes. That fire is My passion for you, but it will consume everything that is not of Me. What will be left standing?

Come to Me and I will cleanse you. Do not wait! RUN to the Mercy Seat! Then you can standwith Me and not apart from the One who covers your sins. Then you will be able to worship in the power of My Spirit. Then you will be able to come to Me in truth. Then you will be free!

Come! Come into the Holy Place! Come sit at My feet and learn from Me for I Am humble of heart. You will find rest for your souls.

I stand at the crossroads looking down at My watch. I Am telling you plainly, the hour is late.Do not think that I come to take you up and out of your mess. I do not speak of what men teach. I speak of the hour in your life that has come and I Am telling you, the hour is late. Those who hear Me have been sending warnings to implore you to seek Me early, yet you think you have all the time in the world. You do not. I see the time. The hour is late. My love is great. Come and soak in My Presence and see what I Am can do with your life!

Scripture References:
Hebrews 4:16; 12:11; 1 Corinthians 3:11-15;  Mark 4:22; Matthew 11:28-30; 25:1-4, Galatians5:19-23

Personal note: This word was one of the first prophetic declarations I received from the Lord to send to the church online.

There is something I feel responsible to make clear before you read this. The Lord's words are spoken in a tone of voice of the deepest love you can imagine.  If you hear anything other than God's love for you, know that tone is not in line with what is coming from the Throne Room.  These earnest appeals from the Lord, I believe, come from the times we live in and the sincere urgency that He wants to impart to His Beloved. Jesus' greatest desire is for us to know Him as we are known.  It is my prayer that these words spur us each into action and into a deeper place in Christ.  Be encouraged.  His love is more than enough; His grace is sufficient. 

Love in Christ,

Judy

My Love Is Hot

Worship is not a spectator sport.  My children, I desire you to come to Me with your whole heart.  The half-hearted praises of My people weary My ears.  I am exhausted for the straining I must do to hear you worship in spirit and in truth.

I am begging you to come to Me while I can be found. Must you always be moved to find Me in calamity?  Will you not see the benefits of seeking your God and King during times of plenty? O how much more I could bless you if you were seeking me when you are in good times.

Come - Come - Come!

Worship Me in spirit and in truth.  Seek what this means to your King.

My love is an intimate, passionate love.  It nauseates Me when I hear My own telling the hurting, "I love you with the love of the Lord," when they could no more care about that person than the man-in-the-moon.  Don't have mixed seed - that is to say don't have mixed love.  You cannot love Me and love the world. You cannot love Me and love mammon.  

My love is red hot. My love is not lukewarm.  Lukewarm love makes Me want to vomit. 

Come to Me hot or come to Me cold, but don't come lukewarm.  Don't touch those I call 'MINE' with lukewarm love.  I desire to have you touch My heart and My hurting with hot love. 

My love is hot.

My Love Is Hot - 7/9/06

During corporate worship the Lord asked me to stop and look around.  Then He gave me this word: 

Worship is not a spectator sport.  My children, I desire you to come to Me with your whole heart.  The half-hearted praises of My people weary My ears.  I am exhausted for the straining I must do to hear you worship in spirit and in truth.

I am begging you to come to Me while I can be found. Must you always be moved to find Me in calamity?  Will you not see the benefits of seeking your God and King during times of plenty? O how much more I could bless you if you were seeking me when you are in good times.

 Come - Come - Come!

Worship Me in spirit and in truth.  Seek what this means to your King.

My love is an intimate, passionate love.  It nauseates Me when I hear My own telling the hurting, "I love you with the love of the Lord," when they could no more care about that person than the man-in-the-moon.  Don't have mixed seed - that is to say don't have mixed love.  You cannot love Me and love the world. You cannot love Me and love mammon.  

My love is red hot. My love is not lukewarm.  Lukewarm love makes Me want to vomit. 

Come to Me hot or come to Me cold, but don't come lukewarm.  Don't touch those I call 'MINE' with lukewarm love.  I desire to have you touch My heart and My hurting with hot love. 

My love is hot.

Personal note:

When the Holy Spirit asked me to look around in worship, I saw so many just not connecting to Him.  It was clear their minds were somewhere else and it really bummed me out.  I don't normally look around during worship because I think worship is really personal, so I try to respect people's privacy. I am there to seek the face of God, not to watch what people are doing.  What I saw (spiritually) was disheartening and I felt His sorrow.  Understand, this is not a specific church that the Father seeks to single-out.  What I was witnessing was 'a matter of the heart' of His Bride - the Church. It just happened to be manifesting where I was at - and it certainly wasn't for the lack of skilled musicians.  I would suggest that you ask the Lord what He meant in John 4:23 and let Him speak to you.

The Exchange - 6/28/06

O My beloved. Can't you see that I desire to make an exchange with you?  I want to give you beauty for ashes and joy for fear.

I want you to hand Me the broken events from your life - the rejection, shame, heartbreak, grief, fear, and everything that fills your heart that is not from Me.  Give Me the defiling things in your heart.  Let the exchange take place.  As you release each one, fill that place in your heart with My approval, My forgiveness, My joy, My peace, My love.  But remember, it's all because of My intense love for you.

Turn Off the Noise - 6/28/06

(This word was given about 30 minutes after, The Exchange.  I was awoken by the Lord out of deep sleep both times and wrote them down.)

So many of My children go through life with non-stop noise.  The TV is on, the radio is on, the CD's are playing.  You think you are 'plugged in' with your cell phones, computers, I-Pods, Blackberries and such.  But in plugging into the barrage of racket going on around you - you have un-plugged yourself from Me.  Those things are not your life-line.  I Am your life-line!

Do you wonder how some hear the voice of the Lord and some don't?  I Am the 'still small voice.'  I will not override your will.  Your desire is to hear what the world has to offer, but will you take the time to sit in the quiet of the day and seek Me out?  Do you want to hear the 'still small voice' of the One who loves and adores you?  Do you want to hear from the One who wants to give you solutions to your most difficult life questions? 

Turn off the noise. 

The Cold and Distant Bride - 7/12/06

The Lord has been speaking to me in the past few days in a way that is difficult to describe; it is so tender and yet full of agony.  There is such an ache and longing in His voice.  We think if He is speaking sternly that He is mad and that is not it. That is not it at all. It is His passionate desire for us.  His love for His Church is so intense and deep.  Most of those who are 'called by His name' are satisfied with so little (spiritually) and He died so that we could have so much more (spiritually).

His reminded me today how He asked Hosea to marry a woman whose affections were distant at best. She went to others to be satisfied and it was God's way to show how painful it is for Him when we seek the worldly things and mix them with Christ's burning passion for His cherished Church.  This is what makes us lukewarm, beloved.  

He went to the Cross and demonstrated His deep and passionate love for us by being the very ransom for our captivity.  Then many who have accepted the gift of salvation - those whom He died for - go on about their lives as if He had done nothing at all?  How can this be???  Will the Beloved of Christ really just go on her merry way after seeing the enormity of His sacrifice?  Do they see the extent of the vast love He has shed?  Maybe we need to see Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion of the Christ once more so that it is vivid in our minds.  I feel Him begging us, pleading with us even to come to Him. 

Will we be like the five foolish virgins who presumed that they had enough light in their lamps to see them through the dark days, or will we be like the wise virgins who invested in extra oil so that their lights would not go out?  Will we be like the wife of Hosea or the Bride who has made herself ready?

Hosea 1:2  When the LORD began to speak through Hosea, the LORD said to him, "Go, take to yourself an adulterous wife and children of unfaithfulness, because the land is guilty of the vilest adultery in departing from the LORD."

Rev 19:7, 8  Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready.  Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear." (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.)

It is my sincere prayer that you turn your affections and your attention to the Lord.  Please - turn off the noise so you can hear Him.  I pray you will invest in the oil of the Lord.  Seek the Lord while He can be found.  The Lord calls, He beckons, "Come!"  But He does NOT force His will on us.  Will you come as a readied bride?

Come into the Holy of holies and worship your King. He is worthy.

Romans 8:5  For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

The Hour is Late - 7/12/06

Won't you come in?  Can't you hear My voice beckoning you into the Holy of holies?  Don't you understand that I already know why it is you don't want to come into where I Am sits?  Everything is exposed in here.  You prefer to come to church and go through the niceties and don't realize that you are only in the courtyards; you have yet to come into My presence.  You want to sing songs that sound good.  You don't want to draw too much attention to yourself.  You don't want to turn anyone off.  You want it to last just only so long because you have places to go and people to meet, and yet you leave the one Who ransomed your heart from destruction standing there empty-handed.

Can you see that taking sin into yourself is like eating rubbish?  Why would you want to eat garbage when I have a feast prepared for you?  You are holding on to hidden sin and it keeps you from My best - it keeps you from the Secret Place of the Most High.  You refuse to come into the Holy Place with Me because you will not release these insidious desires of yours. You want to lie and cheat; greed runs amuck in those I call My own.  Listen Child of Mine, you do not hide a thing from I Am.  You only hide it from yourself.  Everything is going to be exposed in the Day.  Everything is to be revealed by the fire that burns in My eyes.  That fire is My passion for you, but it will consume everything that is not of Me.  What will be left standing? 

Come to Me and I will cleanse you.  Don't wait!  RUN to the Mercy Seat!  Then you can stand with Me and not apart from the One who covers your sins.  Then you will be able to worship in the power of My Spirit.  Then you will be able to come to Me in truth.  Then you will be free!

Come!  Come into the Holy Place!  Come sit at My feet and learn from Me for I Am humble of heart.  You will find rest for your souls.

I stand at the crossroads looking down at My watch.  I Am telling you plainly, the hour is late.  Do not think that I come to take you up and out of your mess.  I do not speak of what men teach.  I speak of the hour in your life that has come and I Am telling you, the hour is late.  Those who hear Me have been sending warnings to implore you to seek Me early, yet you think you have all the time in the world.  You don't.  I see the time.  The hour is late.  My love is great. Come and soak in My Presence and see what I Am can do with your life!

It's His LOVE church.  Everything... it's all about His love.  His discipline leads to holiness and without it we are in trouble.  There is a Scripture that I think will bless you (if you have made it this far!)  It is Hebrews 12:5-15.  God's discipline yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness.  Yum.  There's something sweet to sink your teeth into!

Will you let Him burn out everything in your heart that doesn't belong to Him; then will you ask Him to leave everything of Him ablaze?

Seated with you in Christ,

Judy Bauman

My child, the work I do in you is not the work of the world.  I see those things that must be cut out.  Those things that hinder and those things that cause you to react in ways you do not understand - they mustcome out of you for you to walk forward in My will for your life.  Trust Me with the knife as I am the Master Surgeon.  I can cut those cancerous ways out of your being and make you new again.  When I Am the One you turn to for help, you will see a change.  Some say that leopards can't change their spots.  This is true, but I can change them if it is My desire!  It is neither by your might nor by your power, but it is by My Spirit.  Let Me cut out the cancer in your soul.  Let Me cut away the malignant growth.  Let Me cleanse the deep and infected wounds and remove all traces of gangrene.  Don't you know that gangrene comes from the lack of blood to living tissue?  Let Me apply the blood of My Only Begotten Son to your deepest of wounds.  Let Me apply the Balm of Gilead. Let Me give you the heart transplant you so desperately need.  Let Me inject My DNA into the depths of your being.  Watch as you are transformed from glory to glory! 

Do not fret if this takes multiple surgeries.  You are indeed going from glory to glory.  This is a process, beloved child. I know exactly how much you can really take at any given time.  I will bring you into My operating room when I know it is the precise time - not too soon - not too late.  I will bring you in as many times as it takes to cut away the deadness of your wound.  I will only cut as deep as I know that you can recover, and then I wait until you are truly ready again.  This kind of work takes time.  Do not worry about your schedule or how far along you are in the process.  I Am familiar with all your ways.  You truly can trust Me.  Let Me touch that wound and bring restoration as you have never imagined. 

Bind yourself to My Son.  Bind yourself to My will.  Bind your body to the perfect work of the cross.  I will loosen the enemy's strangle-hold.  I will skillfully cut away his influence and remove his talons from the death-grip they have had on you.  Trust Me.  All of the rejection and fear and demonic oppression will no longer hold you back from My very best for you!  I will never abandon you.  Though your earthy father and mother forsook you, I never will.  I will bring you near and draw you to Myself.   My arms will never drop you.  None can steal you from My embrace.  Go to sleep and breathe deep from the depths of the well of My love for you.  Rest my love.  Be still and know that I Am your God and your Father.  When you awaken from your slumber, I will have made a permanent change in you as I have replaced your wound with My comfort, My love and My desire for you.  Let My will be done in you, My precious earthen vessel, as it is in heaven.  Trust Abba to care for you in the way that I know best.

With everlasting love,
Your Father

The Lord's Orchestra

The Lord showed me an orchestra.  All the players were warming up and fine tuning their instruments.  It was a loud and cacophonous uproar.  While anticipation and excitement filled the air, the clamor was over-whelming. Finally all the musicians in the orchestra had their instrument in tune.  They stopped everything they were doing and gave the conductor their full attention.  He raised his baton and they began to play in beautiful harmony as he led them.  It was beautiful.

The Lord revealed that the orchestra is His prophets.  In times past we have each gone through the process to fine tune our ears to hear His voice.  We have learned that we have to engage all our senses to hear the Holy Spirit. We have spent time practicing and tuning our 'instruments'.  Sometimes it has been clamorous.  In times past many voices often sounded like they were all saying different things, but we have come into a new season. 

This is a season of harmony.  In this season if something is out of tune, it will be much easier to discern.  Let us proclaim with one voice, by One Spirit, the heart of the Father.  May His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. It is time for Jesus' prayer in John 17 to be conducted. It is time to play the same song together in the same key, rhythm, and pitch, on tempo, and in harmony.  It is a time for synchronization to be realized in the prophetic.  It is a time for our voices to become one in Christ.  It is time to come under Godly authority and allow His leadership to orchestrate the song of the Lord. Let us "Be still and know that He is God."

Please see Ephesians 2:18-22

Since I know very little about an orchestra I looked up some terms and found these interesting:

Conductor - One who directs a group of performers. The conductor indicates the tempo, phrasing, dynamics, and style by gestures and facial expressions.

Temperament -  Refers to the tuning of an instrument.

Cadence - A sequence of chords that brings an end to a phrase, either in the middle or the end of a composition.

Deceptive cadence - A chord progression that seems to lead to resolving itself on the final chord; but does not.

Dissonance - Harsh, discordant, and lack of harmony. Also a chord that sounds incomplete until it resolves itself on a harmonious chord.

Harmony - Pleasing combination of two or three tones played together in the background while a melody is being played. Harmony also refers to the study of chord progressions.

Hymn - A song of praise and glorification. Most often to honor God.

This is shared and written for your edification, so when these things come to pass you will see God's hand on you and you will rejoice because of His faithfulness to you and His love for you.

I heard:

"Do not be overly concerned about the pruning which has come and is to come.  It is from Me and will accomplish what I have set out to do in your midst."

"Incline your ear to Me.  I am pouring forth a new wine and it will take a season to mature.  The fruit that is to come from this pruning will be not only sweet to your taste but filling.  It will also produce a bumper crop."

"Fear not!  I say again!  FEAR NOT! For I Am with you."

"You plant, some water. But I will, I will, I will bring forth the growth."

"Seek My face."

"Seek me early, seek Me late, seek Me in the midst of trial, seek me in the quiet hours of the night.  SEEK ME!"

"I will be found by you and I will tell you those things that your heart longs to hear."

Amen

In His grace,

Judy

Hear O Church!  Arise and walk in the spirit of Esther! Beloved, you are to look at Queen Esther's example in her dealing with Haman to know how to deal with this treachery brewing in Iran.  This wicked plot to destroy Israel has come up to your Father's nostrils as a stench!  How foolish is this?  This leader's pride is like Haman's in the book of Esther.  He is of the spirit Haman.  Does he not know that the God of Israel's chosen people are hidden everywhere - even within Iran's own top ranks?  Your intercessions will bring this man's plotting to ruin! PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM! 

Go to this book, Church.  Esther was a type and a shadow for you to follow.  You are My lovely and chosen bride.  You are the one who can turn My head with your beauty and your grace. Come and ask of Me now.  Purify yourselves and come into My chambers.  I will make known to you how to pray.  This is a love story that I gave you for instruction!

Haman thought he was so high and so great that all should bow down to him.  When My servant, Mordecai, refused to bow to him it made him furious. Haman learned Mordecai was Jewish and so he sought to kill them all because of his hatred for Mordecai.  He wanted to purge the world of My people because one man refused to bow to him.  So he went to the king of Persia, King Ahasuerus (aka Xerxes), and received the king's permission to write letters to the entire empire stating the Jewish people were to be utterly annihilated (on what is normally near February 28th of the Gregorian Calendar, however falls on March 13-14, 2006). His empire had 127 provinces and stretched from India to Ethiopia.

When Mordecai learned of the plot to destroy the Jews, he tore his clothes and cried out in sackcloth and ashes.  He got word toEsther that even she would not be able to escape this evil.  Then he relayed the famous words, "Who can say but that God has brought you in for such a time as this."  The Jews all fasted and prayed for Esther to be accepted into the king's inner court so that he would intervene on their behalf.  After the third dayEsther put on her royal robes and in her beautiful and gracious way came to present herself to the king.  The king's response to her was one of delight. Hear MY CHURCH!  The king was delighted in her!  He loved her and was so taken by her beauty he not only offered her his golden scepter, but also up to half his kingdom!

Esther, in My wisdom, didn't yet speak what was in her broken-heart.  She only asked the king and Haman to a banquet that she had prepared. As they enjoyed themselves, the king inquired of her petition.  Her only request was for him and Haman to return the second night and she would set another banquet before them.  Haman had no clue what was awaiting him.  He left that feast on top of the world.

Then he saw Mordecai who refused to bow, and Haman's blood boiled within him.

Haman was so filled with hatred that night he commissioned gallows 75 feet high to be built on which to hang Mordecai.  But the king's heart was stirred that very night and he was reminded of Mordecai's loyalty to inform the king of a plot against his life.  The king sought to honor Mordecai and brought Haman in the next day to inquire what tribute should be paid to a loyal man who pleased the king.  Haman smugly thought of himself - that it was he who would be honored - so he counseled the king. In every manner this man should be honored!  He suggested a royal robe, a royal horse and a royal crown - all which had been used by the king!  And the clincher was that one of the king's noble men was to escort him through the streets and shout before him saying, "This is what is done for the man the king delights to honor!"  All this Haman said fully expecting he was to be the recipient!  Then the king announced that Haman was to do ALL he had recommended, but to bestow the honor to Mordecai the Jew!  Haman obeyed and did as the king commanded, but afterward he hung his head in utter humiliation and rushed to return home to hide his shame.

Just that quickly he was summoned for the second dinner withQueen Esther where the king asked for her petition.  She beseeched King Ahasuerus to spare her people from utter slaughter and annihilation.  When he demanded to know who was so reprehensible to do such a thing, the Queen told him it was Haman.

Haman was hung that night on the very gallows he had built for Mordecai and his sons later followed him to that end.  Read what is recorded in Esther and pay close attention to what has been emphasized:

8:2 So the king took off his signet ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it to Mordecai; and Estherappointed Mordecai over the house of Haman.
8:8 You yourselves write a decree concerning the Jews, as you please, in the king's name, and seal it with the king's signet ring; for whatever is written in the king's name and sealed with the king's signet ring no one can revoke.

HEAR O CHURCH!!!  The Lord your God is showing you something in this that needs to be applied to this ? Haman' of Persia.  Look at this carefully:

8:7 Then King Ahasuerus said to Queen Esther and Mordecai the Jew, "Indeed, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and they have hanged him on the gallows because he tried to lay his hand on the Jews.

Israel needs our prayers.  Those who cry out for freedom inPersia - Iran - also need our prayers, as they are under the rule of this vile spirit.  Make no mistake that this man's intention is todestroy all of Israel.  That appetite for murder will not be satisfied by just destroying the one country (Mordecai). Haman's spirit is after the Jewish people wherever they may be. The decree will go out for all to be murdered wherever they may be because this spirit will not rest until it sees all Jews dead or itself is killed.  Just as Mordecai warned Esther, so must My church take this warning:

8:13 "Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king's palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house will perish.

Make haste.  Pray for the triumph of Esther and Mordecai to sweep through the Middle East.  Write and declare My word over Israel. Pray for the peace of My city, Jerusalem!  Write it and seal it with the signet ring that I give you.  My third dayhas come and you may come boldly to the inner court to My Throne of Grace!  The golden scepter is extended.  So COME! You say to Me, "Lord, Come quickly!"  But I say to you, "Esther, My Bride, My Church, COME QUICKLY!"

Scriptures To Consider:

Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Matthew 5:43-45 "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust."

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ

2 Chronicles 20:14 "Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem . Thus says the Lord to you: 'Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God's.

DECREE:
This decree is written this day February 11, 2006 Gregorian calendar; 13 Shevat 5766 on the Jewish calendar.  This date is also known as the 27th anniversary of The Revolution of Iran. 

I write not on my own authority but on the authority given to me by my Father and through the blood shed on the Cross atCalvary by His First-born, Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ. Through His resurrection and by His Holy Spirit, He has given me the directive to make plain this decree.  My credentials are listed in the Lamb's Book of Life.  I am His possession and have been marked with His seal. It is His signet ring which seals this decree.   

The Father I speak of is the God of all creation, the Maker of the heavens and the earth.  This same God, whom I call Father, has called Israel His own. 

Psalms 135:4 For the LORD has chosen Jacob to be his own, Israel to be His treasured possession.

God Himself named Israel

As it is written in Genesis 35:9-12 After Jacob returned from Paddan Aram, God appeared to him again and blessed him.  God said to him, "Your name is Jacob, but you will no longer be called Jacob; your name will be Israel." So He named him Israel.  And God said to him, "I am God Almighty; be fruitful and increase in number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will come from your body. The land I gave to Abraham and Isaac I also give to you, and I will give this land to your descendants after you."

The LORD will not forsake them

1 Kings 6:13 "I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will not forsake My people Israel."

God does not take back His calling or His gifts.

Romans 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

This decree is written to warn this president who has openly called for Israel to be "wiped off the map," to repent for making this threat.  Global authorities which overlook nuclear policy must not be ignored.  He has placed himself in the same shoes of Haman as well as those ?sons' - those who are made in his same image - all of which will meet a similar end if an honest apology is not forthcoming.  Haman suffered the death that he himself had devised for Mordecai.  The very weapons devised against the Jewish nation of Israel will come back on this president's own house if he does not turn away from his course of action. There is time for repentance.  Comply with global authorities and repent to the Lord of hosts for launching threats against His treasured Israel.  The Lord God is faithful and just to forgive all sin and to cleanse you of all unrighteousness.  1 John 1:9

Right now I launch prayers of peace over Jerusalem.  I release a shield of faith over Israel.  I pray for the strengthening ofMichael - the great prince who stands watch over Israel - and all who are within his ranks.  Israel, you who are great beloved by the Lord, see to it that your names are written in the Book of Life.  Read Daniel 12:1

I pray for the redemption of the Persian people.  Look up O People of Iran!  Your Help draws near! I pray for those who are in captivity, especially the woman who have endured great torture at the hands of the wicked.  I launch ?peace-seeking' missiles into Iran!  I pray for the Prince of Peace to reign in Iran.

I sign this and take the signet ring given me and seal this decree now in the Mighty and powerful name above all names, Jesus. Amen - so be it!

During worship I received a 'download' from heaven about what Jesus is seeking in our friendship with Him.  As I sat down to write the word the Lord gave me, my pastor introduced a guest speaker - a pastor from Costa Rica.  My church and the speaker's church in Costa Rica have been connected for years.  They went through the customary introductions and pleasantries, but I was focused on writing. Suddenly, my thoughts were interrupted as the guest speaker began his message.  It was so closely in line with what the Lord had just shared with me, I had no choice but to take note of this engaging confirmation!  So first I will share the word I received from the Lord, and then I will share the heart of the message given by the visiting pastor.  It is my prayer that it will spur on your relationship - your friendship - with the Lord Jesus in a mighty way!  Let us give Him the desires of His heart!

In His joy,
Judy

To Be A Friend Of Jesus:

"You come to Me and call Me friend, and rightly so for that it is what I Am.  My friendship is multifaceted, and sadly for Me, so many have a one dimensional relationship with Me."

"I want you to stop and think about your best friend."

"I want you to think about what you do together and what you say to one another."

"Now, My friend, I want you to look at our friendship." 

"Do you see why you why you may be feeling like I am distant from you?"

"If your best friend called only when they need something, how would your friendship flourish?  If your friend did all the talking while you patiently listened and then turned and walked away as you were about to open your heart, how would your trust in that friend grow?  If you were the one always giving and your friend only took, then how long would that friendship last?"

"Friend, come and sit with Me. Come and ask Me what is on My mind.  Come and listen.  Come and be a friend to Me.  I will always be a friend to you. I will always listen to you, I know your thoughts before you even speak, but I still listen to you.  I listen because I love you.  I want you to listen to Me. Oh how much tighter our bond will become when you know My heart as I know yours."

The Lord just gave me a precious Scripture. "Come to Me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."  Matthew 11:28-30


Pastor Ronald Diaz

God made us to commune with Him.  He is so much into relationships; He is even in relationship with Himself!  That is why He is a triune God!  The Lord is relational and desires our love.  He says, "LOVE ME!"  He is not shy about it!  God makes it clear that He desires our attention.  We need to stop being so task-oriented and be relation-oriented.  That is your foundation.  "Let's spend time together!"

We're so task oriented we need to bring our work to the Lord. He knows we have things to do.  So bring your work to Him and do it together.  He wants to be with you in everything you are doing.

Jesus didn't come to give us religion or more tasks.  Jesuscame and made it real simple for us.  He gave us two things to do.  Love Him. And Love others - giving us the ministry of reconciliation.  We are the reconcilers between God and the lost.  But the first and most important thing is to love our God.

Fountain Of Light

During worship while we reverently sung over and over again, "Come, Lord Jesus, Come;" I had a vision about a fountain. In the beginning of singing this song it had begun with the words, "There is a fountain." When I heard the word 'fountain' my mind wandered to a difficult time in my life. I asked the Lord to take away my, 'Fountain of Sorrow' and completely restore His Fountain in my life.

The vision the Lord showed me unfolded in parts and I submit it for your discernment. There was a fountain in the middle of a street. In America nearly all fountains have a pool that catches the water, but many of the fountains in Europe spray down onto the street and then drain underneath. This fountain was like that. It had no borders. It was very simple with three tiers that looked somewhat like a worn down monument.

This simple fountain was slowly replaced. First the head of a lion came up the middle. It was a regal lion and he looked me squarely in the eye. I was captured by its majesty. Water then began to gush out of His mouth and cascaded down onto the lowest pier where there lay a small Lamb - white and perfect and dead. It almost looked asleep, but it wasn't. It lay motionless on top of the Lion's feet as though when it died it had collapsed there and the Lion hadn't moved. I looked back up at the Lion's face and saw the fountain's water trickle from His eyes as tears.

Rising above the Lion to the left was an Eagle. I could see its piecing left eye and formidable beak. The Eagle had water flowing through the top of its talons. It looked to be a Golden Eagle.

Standing to the right in front of the Lion and the Lamb was a large white male sheep. It looked exactly like a Colorado Ram with its horns curling under - only pure white. This animal stood on the street and the water ran under his feet.

To the right came forward a Rider on a beautiful white horse. He was a regal Man with a sword extending from His mouth, yet it was as water. (The thought came to me last night after reading Revelation 4:6, 7 that the sword could have been made out of crystal with water running over its blade. This passage seems to describe some of what I saw.) The sword was forceful and deadly, yet it was the defense of the weak and hopeless. He was dressed in a type of armor and was clearly a force to be reckoned with. He was a lovely sight and a terrifying one at the same time.

His grace and peace,

Judy
