An Exhortation From Fhe Father's Heart To Yours: Come Sit Next To Me
 
“As I give you rest from the days gone by, I urge you to set your face like flint for the days to come. But don’t get lost looking too far back or too far forward. Keep your feet from stumbling by knowing what’s just ahead of you, with where I Am taking you in sight. Learn from the walk, the run, and the stumbling of the past; but don’t allow your past to dictate to you where I Am taking you. For better or worse – good or bad, it’s old wine.
 
“My desire is for you to drink anew and receive My Spirit in this time and season in full strength. I Am looking for vessels to fill – vessels which have kept themselves in Me.
 
“If you feel you have fallen short, I beckon you to come and sit next to Me and let Me put My arm around you. I feel your disappointment. Let us come together and see what can be done to help keep you from stumbling in the future. You do not have to shoulder the weight of this burden alone.
 
“I Am not One who sits in judgment with a hammer ready to hit or a lightning bolt ready to strike! I sent what I love most to take your shame, guilt and lack and nailed it to the Cross. Allow the salve of My love to bring healing to your wounds and let us walk together in victory in the days to come.”
 
Lovingly,
Your Abba

Arise Esther!!! The Spirit of Haman Must Be Stopped By Spirit of Esther!
 
This was the first prophetic word the Holy Spirit gave me to release publically to the Church. Because of things going on in the world between Israel, Iran and the USA, and the fact that Purim is being celebrated beginning at sunset on March 7, 2012, I am resubmitting it for your consideration. Please pray as the Lord would lead you. Thank you.
 
This is what the Lord said:
 
“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 Ahasuerusand received the king's permission to write letters to the entire empire stating the Jewish people were to be utterly annihilated.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 to Esther 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 day Esther 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. However, 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 with Queen 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 and died that night on the very gallows he had built for Mordecai and his 10 sons later followed him to that end. Read what is recorded in the book of 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 Esther appointed Mordecai over the house of Haman.
  • 8:8 You yourselves write a decree concerning the Jews, as you please, in the king's name, andseal 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 thisHaman 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 your prayers. Those who cry out for freedom in Persia - Iran - also need your prayers, as they are under the rule of this vile spirit. Make no mistake that this man's intention is to destroy 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. (It has been updated on October 14, 2010 Thursday, 6 Cheshvan, 5771.) I write not on my own authority but on the authority given to me by my Father and through the blood that was shed on the Cross at Calvary 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 Israel.
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 by my hand without prejudice or malice to warn to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad,who has openly called for Israel to be "wiped off the map," to repent for making this threat. May the global authorities which police these policies enforce them. By making this death threat against Israel and those who align themselves with her, he has placed himself in the same shoes of Haman as well as the 10 sons (nations). Repentance must be 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 President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his own house if he does not turn away from his course of action. There is time for repentance and it is NOW. Comply with global authorities and repent to the Lord of hosts for launching threats against His treasured Israel - the Apple of His eye. You are in His hands. 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 of Michael - 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. 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!
Reverend Judy Bauman

An Exhortation From The Lord: The Downfall of Judas:

Many in the Church have twisted My words and the words of My prophets to justify their wars and striving for power and dishonest gain.  This should not be so.

Judas tried to force Me to bring about change in the government.  He assumed I would take an earthly throne if physically threatened. He was trying to be the big man so when I rose up in defiance to the Romans, he would rise with Me.  But he misunderstood.  Sin was crouching at his door and abounded in him.  His love of money was his undoing and he opened the door wide for Satan to come into him.  Even with all the miracles he witnessed firsthand, even with all the teachings he heard of My kingdom, even though he walked with Me daily, Judas was made to be blind, deaf and dumb because of his love of money.  (See John 12:6; First Timothy 6:10 and Ecclesiastes 5:10)

There are many in My Body who misuse money. In fact so few don't, I can scarcely count them!  Many shepherds mishandle the funds given, congregants remain under shepherds they do not trust and then make excuses for their lack of giving; yet this all comes out of the same cursed root - the love of money.  (See Titus 1:7, 11)  Many do not give joyfully nor do they sow into fields of plenty.  Instead they give out of compulsion and need, and then hold a grudge to whom the seed is given.  My Word clearly teaches not to do this!  (See Second Corinthians 9:7)  Many more give little to nothing because the cares of this world have choked My seed in their hearts. (See Matthew 13:22)  There are those that have remained faithful to use what is given them to build My kingdom and not their own.  In these the seed grows and multiplies 30, 60 and 100 fold.

Unfortunately, many of My saints have built on sand (hearing but not doing what I have instructed them to do) and now things are crashing in on them. I do not say this to add to their sorrow but to show them the way they must build - on The Rock! (See Matthew 7:24; Psalm 127:1)  It is My hope for Mine to go where I send them and give with a cheerful heart, so that I may complete their joy.

A warning I pray you will understand is this: Learn from historical mistakes. Anything that forces one to proclaim "Jesus is Lord" is not of Me. (i.e.: Constantine's rule, The Crusades, Witch-hunts and persecution of Jews in the name of Jesus to name a few.)  I do not force conversion and I do not kill if one does not convert.  (See John 10:10)  I forgive and I deliver; I heal and I save. I Am love. I Am slow to anger and abound in mercy; I Am the Standard.

An Exhortation From God Our Abba to Fathers

Readers: While this word is directed specifically to the fathers, this message is not only for fathers, nor is it for men only. It is for all who are called by His name.  In Christ there is no gender as we are all one in Christ.  See Galatians 3:28

Do you know who you are, son?  Man was created in My image and in My image you reflect My love or lack thereof.  You are the very reflection of God Almighty on earth.  When people look at you they see Me.  When your children look at you they either see My love, grace, mercy, faithfulness and patience or they see your judgment, condemnation, perfectionism, apathy, and anger as a reflection of My character.  Do not allow a bitter root to spring from you and defile many.  The fruits of the flesh and the fruits of the Spirit are very apparent.  So what are you reflecting to your children and to those you mentor?  What do you reflect to those who are subordinate to you?  As an example, how do you speak of those who are superior to you in authority? (See Hebrews 12:15; Galatians 5:19-26; 1 Tim 2:1-4; Ephesians 6:9; Titus 3:1, 2).

Many desire to know exactly what I have called them to do and where they are to be.  The perfection of My plan will unfold moment by moment and day by day as you bend your will to Mine.  Do not look to the right or to the left.  Let not your hearts be troubled.  Do what I have asked you to do and then we will move on to the next thing together.  Do not despise the day of small beginnings.  He who is faithful with little will be given much.  (See John 14:1; Joshua 1:7; Zech 4:10, Luke 16:10).

Right now I want you to listen to what I tell you.  You have heard that before the terrible Day of the Lord I sent the prophet Elijah.  My Son Jesus made it clear that John the Baptist came in the spirit of Elijah to restore all things, and yet John clearly did not know who he was. The angel told his father, Zechariah, but John did not understand the depth of his calling.  He did not know he was the Elijah to come and restore all things.  (See Matt 17:12, 13; John 1:21; Luke 1:11-17.) 

Now I ask you: Do you know who you are?  What was and what is the purpose of Elijah's coming?  Yes, he destroyed the false prophets of BAAL, but what was it he was to restore?  What do I desire to be restored now? Does not My word tell you?  Does not My word make it plain?  The Old Testament ends with this strategic information and the New Testament in the Gospel of Luke begins with it.  So can you not see for yourself how plain I have made it?

Malachi 4:5, 6  Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the LORD. He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.

Luke 1: 17  It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, TO TURN THE HEARTS OF THE FATHERS BACK TO THE CHILDREN, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous, so as to make ready a people prepared for the Lord."

Many of you believe you are ready for My coming, but you are not ready.  The hearts of the fathers MUST return to the sons. The hearts of the parents must return to the children.  In the days to come My promptings will become very pointed and exacting.  A breaking is coming!  The fathers are the ones closest to My reflection on earth and I am soon putting My foot down. Those who are repentant will see great breakthroughs in every area of their life, but those who are not will suffer great judgment from My hand.

The fathers must heed and obey.  This will require them to humble themselves under My mighty right hand, but those who obey will be lifted to new heights that will astonish even the best of them.

At risk are financial blessings, healings and miracles, salvations and wholeness, and more than the mind can conceive.

Many have cried out to Me for healing and financial breakthrough, but what they do not see is their relationship with their families is first on My list.  Warn the men, Judy, that because they are a reflection of My glory on earth, it is time to align their will to Mine.  The hour is late! It is much later than most believe.  Let it be done on earth as it is in heaven.

I Am praying for the fathers.  I Am praying for the parents. I Am praying for you. Reflect Me well.  Be who I called you to be - representatives of My love on earth.  May it be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Selah

Love,
Abba

An Exhortation From The Father's Heart To Yours: Come With Your Alabaster Box

My beautiful one!  Do you not know the alabaster box, while lovely to look at, is meant to be broken?  I do not look at what is seen, but what is within one's being.  Deep calls to deep, beloved!  I look to the soul and this is where I spend My time.  I do not write on tablets of stone; I write upon the fragrance of your heart so the scent of heaven is all about you.

Most guard their alabaster box from the breaking.  They want to display it, clean its outer shell, and boast its value; but what is lovely to Me is what is inside being withheld. The hardness of the outer shell is what is keeping them from enjoying the love which I give in abundance.  Until the precious oil inside is released, the true beauty - the true gift remains hidden.

Release to Me, My beloved, your alabaster box.  Release your heart and those issues that have locked your sweetness inside.  Allow the breaking, so that the beautiful fragrance I created you to emanate will radiate around you. 

As you allow your heart to feel, truly feel and not hide, the lovely aroma of you will come bursting out!  The perfume of you and the perfume of Me will marry and cause others to perceive the kingdom of heaven within you.

Come beloved; come with your alabaster box.  Come anew.

Scriptures to ponder:
Psalm 42; Isaiah 60:1, 2; Matthew 26:6-13; Luke 17:20, 21

Because the word the Lord gave at the end of this vision seems to me to be critical to the hour and day we live, I will submit it first and then include my entire interaction with the Lord to follow it.  I realize that long emails lose many but this was a profound encounter. I pray you make time to read the vision in its entirety.

In the Father's love,
Judy

Walk In the Light:

"Hear Me now and understand!  The light that comes from you must first come from Me.  It must also come to me - that is to say your light [the light I give you] must glorify your God and King.

"Behold, darkness covers the earth and gross darkness on the people.  Your earth is filled with darkness.  It does not take a prophet to see and proclaim that.  You are to proclaim the Light of the world!  When those who are called by My name proclaim what the darkness is doing, they cause their light to become darkness.  Their eye has gone bad.  In that darkness others are misled.  The blind then lead the blind. 

"Have I not already told you the outcome? Why does My body then fret and worry and spread fear throughout?  They listen to [so called] prophets who see the obvious darkness, but fail to see My reigning light.  As a result they proclaim the darkness descending upon the earth.  How does this glorify the Father?

"Will the prophets continue to proclaim the darkness and everything, real or perceived, that Satan's kingdom does? Or will they repent from such destructive nonsense and read My word?  Will they instead turn, look with healed eyes, and see the many thing I AM doing in their midst?

"One cannot live in the light and proclaim darkness, neither is it possible to live in darkness and proclaim the light.

"I say to you - Live in My light and [you will be able to] proclaim light into the darkness around you.  As you walk in the light as I Am in the light, you will expose the unfruitful deeds of darkness and manifest My glory."

Walk in the Light (vision in full):

Coming down the path to the River, I see the Lord working a patch of land.  It looks to be a garden that is about 25'X30'. While it is not a large garden, it is one capable of producing a variety of fresh vegetables and is small enough to manage.  The soil is a beautiful shade of brown and rich in appearance.  There are rows of different vegetables already planted, but I see the Lord carefully planting five seeds inside a mound that appear to be squash or melon. 

Jesus looks up and smiles as He states, "Cantaloupe to be exact!  Your favorite as I recollect." 

"Yes," I say while laughing.  "Can I help?"

"Actually no - this is a gift for you and I have just now put the finishing touch on it!"  He closes the mound, pats the soil down, slaps His hands together to knock off the dirt, and stands to His feet.  As He brushes off His clothes He looks up at me smiling and says, "Tell you what.you water the garden and I will make it grow."

Right then a loud clap of thunder rumbles through the valley and it begins to rain - softly at first but then it begins to pour!  Jesus grabs my hand and we run up the hill and take cover inside a cave.  We find a rock to sit on and I jokingly say, "So I will water it, eh?"

He laughs and retorts back, "Well I will get it watered in for now. Besides there is something very important I want to talk to you about."

He disappears into the cave and returns with a towel and dry clothes. 

"Here, love, let Me dry you off." He wraps the dry, warm towel around me.  It feels like it just came out of a dryer and it cuts through the chill.

"Oh this feels so good, Lord.  Thank You.  You think of everything!" I say as I snuggle into the warmth of the towel.  However, I cannot help but ponder my own doubt and unbelief at my words, "You think of everything." I wonder when I will ever fully trust this Man who loves me so fully and unconditionally. Disappointments in life have a way of chipping away faith and trust.  They scream the lie that God is unfaithful.

"Please put this on, dear one, and give Me your clothing when you are finished."

He leaves to let me dress.  I realize my clothes are not just wet, they are filthy.  The garment He has given is a white linen dress with every needed undergarment as well.  As I remove my soiled clothing I think about what the apostle Paul wrote in Ephesians exhorting us to take off the old man with its corruption therein, and how we must put on Christ and His nature.  I also reflect on the words of the prophet Isaiah telling us to put on a garment of praise for a spirit of heaviness.  The Lord comes back, takes my hand and leads me into the cave. (See Ephesians 4:22, 23 and Isaiah 61:3)

Even though it is a dark cave, I can see very well because the light emanating from the Lord is so bright.  I can see everything clearly.  The rocks, the nooks and crannies, everything is illuminated.  Every once in awhile a bat flies out or a spider scurries off into a dark hiding place.  I realize the light is not only emanating from the Lord, but also from me!

Suddenly we are again outside!  The sky has cleared and is blue and sunny; I ask, "Lord!  What was that all about?"

"Did you notice how you emanated light?" He asked.

"Yes, yes I did!" I exclaim.

The Lord then begins to explain, "I wanted you to see something that actually relates to the prophetic movement and is a huge problem that keeps them and others from walking in the light.  Read what I said recorded in Matthew 6:22, 23:

"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light.  But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!"

I recognize this as a Scripture that has posed more questions than answers for me. 

The Lord explains, "The eye symbolizes the seers - those who I have gifted to see in the spirit.* Every born-again believer has some degree of spiritual sight.  They just need to ask [and keep persistently asking] to see.  But hear Me, I Am speaking to and addressing those who speak [continuously] to My Body of what they are seeing.

"Have I not warned to test the spirits to see if they are of Me?  Have I not warned that Satan can appear as an angel of light?"

"Yes Lord," I reverently reply.

"Hear Me now and understand!"

Jesus' voice thunders.  It shakes the mountains; rocks all around us begin to roll downhill.  Flocks of birds fly frantically out of nearby bushes.  I fall to the ground and begin to weep and tremble at His awesome presence.

The Lord reaches down and lifts me up, but I am unable to stand.  My body is like rubber and refuses to work.  He blows on each leg and then into the core of my being.  I feel the strength to stand come back into my body.  I am still shaking uncontrollably. He takes my face into His hands and kisses my forehead.  I am completely calmed by this simple gesture on His part though tears continue to stream down my face.

Softly Jesus continues, "Hear Me now and understand."  His hands cradle my face and I feel His immense love for me.

"The light that comes from you must first come from Me.  It must also come to me - that is to say your light [the light I give you] must glorify your God and King.

"Behold, darkness covers the earth and gross darkness on the people.  Your earth is filled with darkness.  It does not take a prophet to see and proclaim that.  You are to proclaim the Light of the world!  When those who are called by My name proclaim what the darkness is doing, they cause their light to become darkness.  Their eye has gone bad.  In that darkness others are misled.  The blind then lead the blind. 

"Have I not already told you the outcome? Why does My body then fret and worry and spread fear throughout?  They listen to [so called] prophets who see the obvious darkness, but fail to see My reigning light.  As a result they proclaim the darkness descending upon the earth.  How does this glorify the Father?

"Will the prophets continue to proclaim the darkness and everything, real or perceived, that Satan's kingdom does? Or will they repent from such destructive nonsense and read My word?  Will they instead turn, look with healed eyes, and see the many thing I AM doing in their midst?

"One cannot live in the light and proclaim darkness, neither is it possible to live in darkness and proclaim the light.

"I say to you - Live in My light and [you will be able to] proclaim light into the darkness around you.  As you walk in the light as I Am in the light, you will expose the unfruitful deeds of darkness and manifest My glory."

In the Father's love,
Judy

His Train Fills The Temple, A Vision During Worship

While attending the annual Secret Place Encounter in February of this year, I saw the most exquisite scene unfold during praise and worship.  The praise team was singing a couple of songs I did not know, but the congregation was completely engaged in worship.  It was a wonderful time of joy, but I was in for a very big surprise from the Lord.  He allowed me to see from His Throne of Grace when we come before Him, and it is my hope and prayer to bless you with this testimony. Because this is an ongoing scene taking place before the Lord, it is written in present tense.

His Train Fills the Temple

We are singing a song called, Alabaster Box, and the words are:

It's my fragrant oil
It's my costly perfume
Take my alabaster box - break it open
Let the fragrance arise

Suddenly, I see the Lord Jesus seated on His throne watching the dancers as they worship in spirit and truth.  I am surprised and humbled to see I am seated by His side.  The Lord lets me know I am there as a witness and scribe, but also as one beloved. 

Jesus watches those who worship Him willingly and without reservation with eyes of love, compassion and joy.  He watches them with delight for a long time, but then He can take it no longer!  He rises up, steps down onto the floor, and joins one worshiper in dance.  The dance is elegant, graceful and lovely like ballroom dancing. He then dances serendipitously through the worshippers.  

As the Lord weaves Himself through His people, He takes His time to love and minister to each one.  He is not in a hurry with anyone. Some continue in the spirit of the dance as Jesus moves to the next person; others weep and fall to their knees.  There are only tears of joy; there is no sorrow, no shame, no condemnation, nor tears of pain.  A gentle wind blows through the great hall and some swoon to its touch.  All the worshippers then fall on their knees and sway to and fro like wheat blowing in the wind.  They are so beautiful as they worship their King.

We begin to sing another song and its words are:

I see Your face
You're beautiful, You're beautiful!
I see Your face
You're beautiful, You're beautiful!

The Lord slowly makes His way back to His Throne, turns and gracefully sits down.  This is the first time I see His train. (See Isaiah 6:1).  I had not seen this before when Jesus walked through the worshippers and danced with them.  But as He returned to His seat my eyes were opened to see that as He danced with each worshipper, He was wrapping His train around everyone He touched!  I looked out over the great hall and saw the worshippers basking in His train which surrounds them like a warm blanket.  It cleanses them, covers them, comforts them, warms them and blesses them in ways they could never imagine.  They are literally being cuddled in His train.

The Beloved looks at the joy and peace on each face and He looks so content and full of love for them.  I sit as one who records this joy of His as we come before Him worshipping in spirit and in truth.

About 40 minutes went by as we continued in song when I realized I was now seeing this vision from the perspective of the worshippers.  I weep with great joy before my King!  I feel the warmth and comfort of His train as it surrounds me.  His love is wrapped up in it somehow.  It is overwhelming.  I am overwhelmed with love for the Lord Jesus.  I am warm and comfortable and SAFE!  At this point I have such a deep revelation of my being safewith Him and begin to declare my joy at being safe - truly safe in Jesus.

When the Saints Go Marching In: Pondering the Superbowl win

Introduction:

This year I have not followed football or really any sports, so it was strange that I was so excited when I heard the "Saints" were going to play in the Superbowl.  All week I kept hearing the joyful song, When the Saints Go Marching In, play in my head. While this win means something for the Saints' home of New Orleans, what the Lord was revealing to me was not about a city, but about a people - His saints (believers in Jesus).  This morning I inquired of the Lord what He was saying through this team's victory, especially since they were not favored to win. I believe this to be an instructional word for the saints of God to go forth in His name and power.  There is also instruction for the competing "Colts".  I release with reverence what I believe I heard Him say:

It is a new era in which I am again calling My saints to rise up, "march in" and take authority over all the power of the enemy. Have I not said that those who listen to you (My saints) listen to Me, and those who reject you reject Me?  The ones who reject Me also reject the One who sent Me. I glorified My Father who sent Me and as I was sent, I send you.  Your eyes are blessed to see what I am showing you.  (See Luke 10:16, 19, 23)

The Colts (a young horse which is also symbolic of the growing apostolic movement) may have been favored to win, but they (those called to be apostles) still need time to mature.  I did not want a win at this time to go to their heads. (See First Timothy 3:6)  Their win in 2007 was to encourage the apostolic move during that season, but it is time for them to grow up so they can run with endurance and effectively equip the saints for the work of the ministry.  (See Ephesians 4:11, 12)  It is My desire for the all saints (believers) of God to win the race set before them.  While the "Saints" did not have the favor of man, they are and will continue to be favored of Me!  (See Hebrews 12:1)

Beloved saints, the weapons of your warfare are not found in the physical realm but in the spiritual.  These weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of wicked fortresses.  These are the weapons I urged you to use when I said, "The kingdom of God suffers much violence, but the violent take it by force."  I was not referring to physical violence or the strength of man, but the use of spiritual weapons: song (praise and worship), prayer, fastings, giving, walking in compassion and forgiveness, speaking the words of life and light when death and darkness surround you, being salt and reflecting the light of My love.  These are but a few examples of My chosen weapons.  (See Second Corinthians 10:4; Second Chronicles 20:21-24).

I pray you learn from historical mistakes. Anything that forces one to proclaim "Jesus is Lord" is not of Me. (i.e.: Constantine's rule, The Crusades, Witch-hunts, and persecution of Jews in the name of Jesus to name a few.)  These movements never advanced the kingdom of heaven.  Anyone coming to Me in fear will not stay once the perceived fear is removed. They must experience My love.  I do not force people to convert and I do not kill.  I forgive and deliver; I heal, save and give life in abundance. (See John 10:10)  I Am slow to anger and abound in mercy; I Am your Standard.  I Am love.  Follow Me. (See Psalm 103:1-13)

This is how My saints should march in and this is the hour for them to do it!  Behold the harvest is white and plentiful. May My saints arise from their slumber, shine in My light and bring forth the harvest. (See Matthew 9:35-38; Isaiah 60:1-3)

Selah

Your,

King of kings, the Commander of the armies of the angels and saints
