WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?

WHO LET THE DOGS OUT

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

There are many wayward people, smooth talkers, and deceivers—especially the converts from Judaism. They must be silenced because they are disrupting entire families with their corrupt teachings, all for their dishonest greed. A certain one of them, one of their own prophets, said, “Those Cretans are nothing but liars, worthless beasts, and lazy gluttons.” He certainly knew what he was talking about! For this reason, correct them thoroughly so that their lives will line up with the truths of our faith. instruct them not to pay any attention to Jewish myths or follow the teachings of those who reject the truth,  It’s true that all is pure to those who have pure hearts, but to the corrupt unbelievers nothing is pure. Their minds and consciences are defiled.  They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are disgusting, disobedient, and disqualified from doing anything good. Titus 1:10-16 TPT

 

 

Mama told me there’d be days like this! BUT, C’mon nah! Who ever thought that progress would be interpreted as truth being despised and irrelevant, deceitfulness, pride, arrogance and greed is extolled while integrity is detested, trust is impaired according to the circumstances of any given moment and hope is deferred as justice bows to social elitism, racial prejudice and party preference! AND ALL THIS IS MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN? #Don’tshoutmedown, nah? A matter of perspective, huh?

TRUTHBTOLD, The Holy Scriptures are being unfolded, live and in living color, right before the eyes of the discerning who yet ascribe to the concept of Biblical Absolutes! Shocking, right? The lawlessness, chaos, confusion, uncertainties, frustration caused by the desolation of moral codes is the inevitable response when the righteous commands are resisted by the rebelliousness of a culture determined to evict the Sovereignty of the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY favoring to do what’s right in their own eyes!

BUT can somebody say, “THANKSB2GOD!” Knowing everything that could, should and would transpire before the foundation of the world, GOD, has made provision through HIS ETERNAL WORD to fulfill HIS DIVINE Plan and Purpose for His most precious of creation’s restoration and reconciliation! Rest assured Beloved, nothing has, can or ever will happen in the earth (and your life) that takes God by surprise! When it seems as if everything is fallen to the dogs and hell is winning, remember, KING JESUS IS STILL ON THE THRONE, REIGNING & RULING OVER THE AFFAIRS OF MANKIND!

And while the rage of the dogs’ barking seems to be drowning out The Voice of Holy Spirit, don’t get it twisted! God’s got them on a lease! Beloved, although we’re living in a season of spiritual darkness, we don’t faint in fear but we boldly walk by faith in the Light of HIS ETERNAL WORD! In the midst of spiritual famine, we remain undaunted, steadfast, courageous, focusing and trusting JESUS, The Author and Finisher of our our Faith.

Your Heavenly Father promised, “ I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU! (Ref. Heb. 13:5) At God’s appointed time The Glory of God SHALL ARISE,  bringing about a Divine Reversal! The first shall be last and the last shall be first! (Mark 10:31)

Blessed is the one who has made the Lord, his trust! Psalm 40:4

GOD MAKES EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL, IN HIS OWN TIME! STAND STILL & SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD! TRUST2KNO, Destiny’s calling 2 shut the dogs mouths!

NOW, #TRUMPDAT!

Good morning Family! GOTTA MOMENT? Ooh Glorraa!

Welcome to 1 more brand new day! We’re excited that you have joined with us in our Weekly Thursdays’ Day of Corporate Fasting & Prayer! Once again, we appreciate the opportunity and privilege to entreat The Presence of our Great High Priest, pouring out our hearts desires, petitions and supplications with Thanksgiving. We know that He delights in our embracing Him in earnest expectation, confident that He Rules Forever by His Power is able to save and deliver us from any of life’s maladies!Shall we pray?

Faithful, faithful, faithful is our God! Faithful, faithful, faithful is our God!Faithful, faithful, faithful is our GOD! Faithful, faithful, faithful is our God; I’m reaping the harvest God promised me! Take back what the devil stole from me; And I rejoice today, for I shall recover it all Yes, I rejoice today, for I shall RECOVER IT ALL!!!
Our Father and our God of Heaven and Earth, we come before bowing in Holy Reverence, humbled by Your Loving-Kindness, Grace and Mercy! We’re eternally grateful for one more opportunity to behold The Glory of Your Presence! Knowing that it’s only Your Wisdom and Strength that has allowed us to live today! We thank You for opening up the eyes of our understanding to reveal to us such wondrous treasures that were hidden from us as we walked as dead men, surrounded by darkness in the earth without a God on our side!

Abba Father, because of Your Faithfulness, we cherish this day and don’t take for granted, as if we have a right to live! But By The Mercy and Grace of our Blessed Father, we now live, move and have our being! As we come offering our bodies as living sacrifices to You, our hearts are rejoicing, our hands are lifted up and our lips shall be forever praizing You! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For ONLY You have preseved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!

Daddy,  because You  were willing to send Your Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, we thank You for being our Salvation, Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision. We’re thankful that even knowing our frame, Your faithfulness and compassion continuously allows You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to see and minister to everything we need pertaining to life and godliness!

Thank You Lord Jesus for being such a forgiving and understanding God. We must admit that You’ve already done enough for us that we should spend the rest of our life, worshiping and giving You all The Glory, Honor and Praise; for none else is worthy BUT YOU! YET, You keep right on blessing us over and over again! Abba Father, being careful not to take YOUR KINDNESS AND GRACE for granted, we ask You to please forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to Your Heart. We blss You for giving us the Assurance that as we confess our sin, You are Faithful and Just to forgive, pardon and restore us back into rightful fellowship with You, therefore, we ask now for Your forgiveness, in The Precious Name of Jesus! IT IS SO!
Precious Lord, as we stand before You, we praying, teach us Your Ways and help us to see sin through Your eyes and to acknowledge it as evil wickedness and rebellion against the Creator and Lover of our souls, The Giver and Sustainer of All Life! And when we sin, quicken our spirit to repent immediately, and to confess with our mouth our wrongdoing, that we might receive the Gracious forgiveness of our Heavenly Father!
Sweet Holy Spirit, because no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we intercede on behalf of every unsaved soul, asking You to quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance in their heart and in their mind that they will come to you today confessing a“sincere YES” to your Amazing Gift of Grace and receive You as their personal Lord and Savior! We’re believing that You will Divinely orchestrate their footsteps settleling them into a local church home today.

Lord, lifting up any one who has walked away from You for whatever reason, we ask You to put a “fresh committed YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider! Make today the day that they come back to You and come back to YOUR church where they will  be receieved and welcomed in love and nurtured to wholeness that they will submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, and learn to love and live their lives denying selfishness and walking to please You First!

Father, we pray that You will touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, kidney disease, heart/lung disease, every mental disorder, arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, acid reflux disease, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and ulcers and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. Heavenly Father, accprding toYour Word, You are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Therefore, even as You walked this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now! Your Word declares that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on Your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Dear Lord, we’re intervening on behalf of every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, that You will release Divine power, Supernatural strength, health, provision, prosperity and protection. We’re trusting that You will preserve each and everyone of us thru the tests that we must go thru and keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that at the appointed time,You, will bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word.

Abba, we ask that You encourage and comfort the souls of Your Elect who are overwhelmed with fear, doubt and worry because of the things that are going on in our personal lives and in this ungodly world systems! Father, because You sit high and look low, You already know about the Government Furlough, therefore we ask that You release an outpouring of Your Divine Favor upon each person who needs reassurance, encouragement and empowerment to stand steadfast, immovable in the midst of these wicked and evil days! Let us know that earth has no sorrow that Heaven can not heal, confirm to our souls that HEAVEN IS ALWAYS OPEN and that as we continue to look to You we are never alone and never without YourVery Present Help!

Father, once again, we lift up our children, our grand and great-grand children, trusting Your Word, we rebuke and cancel every wick scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them and committing them into Your Providential care, realizing that our children are a gift from You and that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too. we have the blessed assurance that from their Mothers’ wombs their steps and stops are being Divinely ordered by Your eyes! We PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS OVER THEIR LIVES as we declare and decree that NO WEAPON THAT’S FORMED AGAINST THEM SHALL PROSPER, AND EVERY TONGUE THAT RISES UP AGAINST THEM SHALL BE JUDGED AND CONDEMNED RIGHTEOUSLY BY YOU! We speak The Peace of God that passes all understanding over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence  that empowers them to successfully  fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Sweet Jesus,  as we lift up every spiritual leader, we speak LIFE, STRENGTH, ENCOURAGEMENT, CONFIDENCE, ASSURANCE, INCREASE, RESTORATION OF HOPE and TRUST into all those who are yet believing for immediate manifestation of that special miracle and the fulfillment of every vision that You’ve placed into their hearts! Reward them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word with POWER, under the conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit. Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to Grace them to be the  TRUE AND FAITHFUL WITNESSES and examples of Your Righteousness in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in love with You, trust wholly in You and commit to live the rest of their lives serving and glorifying Your Name!

Heavenly Father, we pray according to Your Will, for the leaders of our nation, Goverment, corporate, judicial, education, Healthcare, public service and financial institutions! We’re asking that You touch their minds and hearts, and that You speak to them in dreams and visions, releasing a Godly-Fear and Trembling, letting them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens is keeping record of the intents and deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly!

Father, stir up the hearts and minds of Your people who are professing Your Name and give them a desire for an even greater personal, intimate relationship with Creator God through fellowship of Holy Spirit that they might prove what is the perfect and acceptable will of The Lord Jesus!
Abba Father, by the power and anointing that You’ve placed upon every one who’s submitted their lives to You, as we stand in the gap today, we curse every SPIRIT of trauma, hatred, racism, evil, rape, incest, molestation, physical and emotional abuse, bullying, murder, suicide, infidelity, betrayal, abandonment, rejection,  hopelessness, unworthiness, stress, oppression, depression, bi-polar, schizophrenia, lack, insomnia, restlessness, confusion, double-mindness, fear, anxiety, grief and sorrow and COMMAND IT TO GO RIGHT NOW! WE SPEAK LIFE, LOVE, LIGHT, SALVATION, DELIVERANCE, HEALTH AND HEALING, HOPE, WHOLENESS, RESTORATION, PEACE, RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JOY IN THE HOLYGHOST TO ALL WHO ARE READING AND STANDING IN AGREEMENT WITH THIS PRAYER IN THE NAME THAT’S ABOVE EVERY OTHER NAME THAT CAN BE NAMED, JESUS CHRIST, WE PRAY!

Heavenly Father, You know that Your people are going through things that we never expected, so we bring so many before Your throne O God. Those who are broken hearted, feeble in body and spirit, the one at a crossroad of life, the ones addicted to harmful substances, our armed forces, policemen, fire and rescue personnel, nurses, doctors, pastors and leaders, missionaries far and near; our leaders of the world. We’re trusting You to send peace where there is confusion, send love where there is hate, send unity where there is division. Bless the fathers and motherless. Keep us ALL in your care. These favors we ask in Jesus mighty name!!

Father, in closing, we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of  temptation, trauma, perversion, addiction, ungodly yoke and  fear is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power, PEACE and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

Father we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat, because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Abba Father, we stand in agreement with You Who FORGIVES TRANSTRESSORS, HEARS AND ANSWERS PRAYERS! Holy Father, because You have called and chosen to live in Your House, we shout with exceeding Joy unto The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines continuously  upon us, You are making Your WILL, WAYS and SALVATION known among all nations for You Guide and Rule justly!

Father, we thank You NOW, for WE believe that ACCORDING TO YOUR PEFECT TIMING, IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. WE SHOUT HOLY HALLELUJAH AND AMEN 3X and It Is So!

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT TRUST2KNOW…JESUS IS ALIVE, HE SAVES AND HE’S COMING BACK…SOON!

SELAH!

U HARVEST WHAT U PLANT!

U HARVEST WHAT U PLANT 2. 2018

SELAH Daily Devotions!

Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 “Now, son of man, will you judge, will you judge the bloody city? Yes, show her all her abominations! 3Then say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “The city sheds blood in her own midst, that her time may come; and she makes idols within herself to defile herself. 4You have become guilty by the blood which you have shed, and have defiled yourself with the idols which you have made. You have caused your days to draw near, and have come to the end of your years; therefore I have made you a reproach to the nations, and a mockery to all countries. 5Those near and those far from you will mock you as infamous and Ezekiel 22:1-5

In you they take bribes to shed blood; you take usury and increase; you have made profit from your neighbors by extortion, and have forgotten Me,” says the Lord God. full of tumult. Ezekiel 22:23

Can your heart endure, or can your hands remain strong, in the days when I shall deal with you? I, the Lord, have spoken, and will do it. 15 I will scatter you among the nations, disperse you throughout the countries, and remove your filthiness completely from you. 16You shall defile yourself in the sight of the nations; then you shall know that I am the Lord.”’” Ezekiel 22:12, 14-16

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. 9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:7-10

 

While, a lot of us readily agree that the most prominent characteristic of The Creator of Life is Love! However, there is that other part of GOD that we prefer to deny or attempt to IGNORE as being an EQUALLY intricate component of God’s Holiness…Justice! According to Ezekiel 22, God sends His servant, Ezekiel, to admonish the people of Jerusalem that their cantankerous sinfulness and unrelenting rejection of His Holy standard of Righteousness has provoked God to the end of Mercy! While this would break God’s heart to do so, they were about to personally experience the boiling point of frustrating The Grace of God and triggering the out pour of His anger…Wrath!

Ezekiel was tasked by God, The Righteous Judge, to inform God’s chosen of the list of charges indited against them. Jerusalem, once renowned as God’s Beautiful City of Peaceful Habitation, had now become infamously known as the Bloody City! Although Jerusalem’s sins were many, showing disregard for human life and leading to violence and death, their sinfulness didn’t exceed the bloodiness of the other pagan cities surrounding it! Yet, because they had the Word, prophets, and priests of God, they were justifiedly held to a much higher standard. However, like many of the 21st Century creme la crème have totally misinterpreted the purpose and intent of God’s blessings, assuming that somehow their physical attributes, heightened intellectual aptitude, financial wealth and elite social status entitles them to esteem themselves above everybody! Kinda reminds you of #45, huh? #SERIOUSLY!

God’s people erroneously believed that because God had claimed them as His own Holy Possession, they were exempt from adhering to His Commandments and excluded from Eternal judgment. They were absolutely convinced that they were IN LIKE FLYNN (or is it Flint)! In other words, we can do whatever we want, as long as we want to, and to whoever we want to… and there will be no consequences, after all God calls me, “MINE”! Besides that we got The Temple!

Over many generations, God had been graciously patient with their bullheadedness! However, after searching for someone to stand in the gap, interceding on their behalf, upholding The Righteousness of God to advert God’s judgment, yet finding not one who would commit to this lofty task, THEIR JIG WAS UP! Eventually, because of the wickedness of their own hearts, time ran out! As they continued to defile His Name with their importunate unfaithfulness, despising His Holy Things with gross idolatry, profaning The Sabbath and their blatant propensity to repulse God’s generous offer of repentance. As a result of their lack of obedience, rejecting His HOLY Code of moral ethics, lethargy for the disadvantaged and making a mockery of God before the gentile nations, FINALLY GOD said, “You Have Forgotten ME! That’s when God resolved to invoke The Sovereignty of HIS NAME!

God’s tactical reversal proved to His Beloved that there MUST be a difference between their own life or for the people they were called to serve! And while it’s extremely rare today to find ENOUGH circumstantial evidence to support it amongst the lifestyle of the saints and the sinner man, there IS A difference between the fate of the unclean and the clean!

God elected to remove the hedge of protection from around them and pour out His indignation upon them, He gathered them into a furnace of affliction! Ezekiel would warn all who rebel against God’s Will, violating the Law, would receive their just reward according to their own deeds! As silver is melted in the midst of a furnace, the fury of God’s anger would be a consuming fire, refining and purifying their hearts corrupted by the dross of fleshy carnal lust, leaving only that which will glorify God! In the midst of the fire of God’s Wrath, “Ye shall know that I the LORD HAS DONE THIS! Hence, demonstrating that if we insist on having our own way, we will be rewarded with the harvest we have planted!

Unless you were born late last night or arrived on planet Earth early this morning, you’ve probably heard some folk making excuses to deceive themselves and relieve the guilt and shame of habitual disobedience. At the same time, depending on whose presence they happen to be in at any particular time, they’ll put on a show! Don’t get it twisted, we’ve ALL BEEN THERE! And as the ol’ skool Preacha said, “You might fool some of the people, some of the time…BUT U CAN’T FOOL GOD…NONE OF THE TIME! Remember, GOD WILL NOT BE MOCKED! As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest…will not cease!

Every day that you wake up in the present, is seed time and the world to come (Eternity) is where we shall reap what we sow NOW!

When one forgets God and leaves his ways, the path into every kind of abomination opens before him.” (Alexander)

‘Cuse me, jus wondering? Does this whole scenario sound disturbingly familiar to EVERYDAY 2018 NEWS, OR IS IT JUST ME? I guess it’s true, huh? The more times change, the more we remain the same! I remember Grand Ma saying, ‘U NEED TO WEAR THIS OL’ WORLD LIKE LOOSE-FITTING OVERCOAT…AFTER ALL WE DIDN’T COME HERE TO STAY” #WOW! #IJS!

SELAH!
