“I stand at the door and knock,”

Imagine you seated at a long beautifully set banquet table. Only the finest china and goblets gleaming with gold is positioned before each diner. Every cut of meat and poultry has been broiled with only the finest spices. Every succulent fruit imaginable are also included as well as exotic dishes from every culture. After you’ve taken in all the wonderful aromas of the magnificent spread before you, you look around to see who you know in this massive gathering of joyous people. You see your grandparents, co-workers and even your neighbors who had died in a car accident. Everyone looked young and were talking and glowing with joy!

This is the marriage supper of the Lamb depicted in the book of Revelation Chapter 19:9.

Jesus told us much about this wonderful event prepared only for those who served him well and faithfully. Jesus described the parable of the wise and foolish virgins. All the virgins had lamps, but five took no oil. Jesus immediately went into his second discourse about the parable of the talents. Talents are gifts, abilities or resources. Let us never forget that every person who accepts Jesus as their Lord and Savior is given gifts for the edifying of God’s kingdom. It’s very important for us to understand the importance of using our gifts and abilities to the fullest capacity during our lives on earth. The parable ends with the master examining the labors of his three servants while he was away. The first two were faithful and diligent, making a good profit on their share of resources. The master was angry to see that the third servant did nothing with his share! His excuse was that his master was a hard and unappreciative master.

I really love the account of the virgins because of the ideal of being Jesus’ radiant bride preparing for my eternal marriage to him! A betrothed woman in love with her fiance anticipates every moment leading up to marriage and the wedding banquets. Imagine a bride who had no passion or desire for her beloved? Five of the foolish virgins had no oil for their lamps. The five wise virgins must have been so excited and made sure they were well-prepared to meet their future husband. Imagine the group of women moving forward in the dark towards their destination to meet their groom. The foolish virgins noticed their lamps going out.They hadn’t bought extra oil, so when the call came out, “Come and meet the Bridegroom” they had no more Oil. The smart gals refused to share their oil and told the unprepared ones to go and buy some more for themselves. When They came back, the door was shut to the wedding chamber. The prepared virgins were enjoying their beloved while the foolish virgins were banging at the door, begging to join. The bride groom called out, “I do not know you!” How shocked and devastated other virgins must have been. That would have been my greatest nightmare, to be shut out of my own marriage because I didn’t truly Know and love my Groom!

In both accounts, Jesus stresses the rewards waiting. The winners were prepared, they were intimate enough to know what their master and bridegroom expected from them and they were expectant Faithfulness is a required attribute mentioned often in the Bible. Many of us who’ve come to Christ have very little for Him to use, but as we show our joy and commitment as a useable vessel, He gives us a large yield!

Every devoted Child of God who pursues Him with all their hearts will reap the marvelous rewards of servant hood. Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice”. The closer we get to our Lord, the more intimately acquainted and enamored we are by Him! Jesus told us that the Father was pleased with Him because He did only what pleased. Jesus obeyed, loved and trusted His Father. He set an example for us to follow. Serving the Lord with all diligence draws us into even deeper fellowship, where we became more than servants, we become His friends and even more so, His cherished, adopted children!

Jesus made the exclusive claim, ” I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” John 10 9 & 10 Some say that other religions offer various ways to heaven and eternal life, but that is contrary to what Jesus said. If they want to follow other roads to heaven and believe that they can enter it by other doors, that is their prerogative, but I wonder why they’d want to risk their eternity by following someone other than Jesus Christ the Only Son of the Most High God and the creator of the universe.

The Psalmist who wrote Psalm 34 urged His reader to “taste and see that the Lord is good. Psalm 34:8. As world events continue to unfold at breakneck speed and developments regarding the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem proceed, we know that Jesus’s arrival is near. We must take advantage of the tiny window of time we have to usher in the last great harvest. God’s people need to get that “holy Hook” into those they meet. With all the doomsday prophecies, chaos, economic despair and violence, we must offer the world an enticing, precious and everlasting ticket to the wedding supper. It will be a truly magnificent occasion of celebration. That is what Jesus came for, to free the oppressed, heal the sick and dying and give them nourishment that would sustain them throughout life and where they would never hunger or thirst again.

Jesus offered the Samaritan woman at the well that living water> he also tells us that He is the bread of life!

Are You Hungry? Are You thirsting? Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart. Will you open the door or will you ignore His gentle, pleading voice to come and sup with Him? He has a banquet prepared for everyone who seeks and loves him. Some of God’s people have had wonderful dreams of what the wedding banquet is like. You can check their stories out on You Tube.

Jesus is calling, asking to sup with Him. Will you come and dine!


The History of Victory

Journal Entry, Wednesday. August 17, 2011

Last night before retiring, I visited gazed at the earthquake You-Tube posts from Japan, ChristChurch, New Zealand and Chile. My heart ached for the devastation and loss of life suffered by the victims of these recent disasters. A Facebook sister posted another You-Tube, Elenin video about another impending earthquake on the west coast of United States. People everywhere are fearful.

This morning, I woke up and felt strongly to take the day off. I feel overwhelmingly thankful as I made my coffee and washed my hair.

“Thank You, Lord for running water, a sunny day and all sorts of modern conveniences  not interrupted by a major earthquake or nuclear attack.” I’d never felt so thankful before and I started to worship out loud and thank Abba for all His blessings throughout my life. Then I contacted my closest prayer warrior Facebook friends to agree with me in prayer about a prophecy of an earthquake to happen today. Whether the Illuminati is instigating HAARP activity to stimulate earthquakes,(conspiracy theories or not) which enabled the last devastating earthquakes, God is sovereign and more powerful than any evil, conniving  group on this planet.

Truth is, (conspiracy theorists aside) scripture  says that men devise evil Many are deluded into thinking they are merrily going about their business without any demonic opposition. Evil plans are conceived continually devised by unregenerate men under the influence of Satanic spirits, including drug lords, sex-traffickers, abortion clinic owners serial killers, and pedophiles. That is why God’s people must use their spiritual ammunition, the name of Jesus, prayer and fasting as a their defense against evil. No weapon formed against us shall proper! Chaos and disaster swirl around, but as heirs of Christ, we have been adopted into a magnificent heritage.

1 Peter 2-10 exalts the glory of Christ being the living stone and how we are being built a spiritual house and holy priesthood.

We are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people called out of darkness into His marvelous light! Our old testament patriarchs have proved the great and mighty exploits of men and women of God who overcame the most horrific and daunting obstacle and battles. It is time for the church to stand her ground and take her rightful place as powerful and anointed warrior/priests. Too many in Christ’s body are weak, impotent or not walking in the powerGod has called us to walk in.

Psychics and secular prophets predict doomsday and the church acquiesces or just rests on her laurels that they are saved and going to heaven. So what of the destinies of millions who will die without Christ in natural, (or mad-made) disasters? When we scope the carnage of our dead  loved ones, co-workers, neighbors and cashiers at Wawa after a Tsunami, like the Japanese, will we still deny the power of prayer and covenant of divine Psalm 91 protection?

Wars and threats of extermination assailed God’s people throughout the old Testament. I take great courage from one of my  favorite heroes, Joshua. He was so confident and empowered in God that when facing the Gibeonite soldiers, God said, to him, “Not one of them will be able to withstand you.” Josiah 10:8.

Imagine his faith as the battle raged. The Gibeonites ran confused and terrified as God hurled large hailstones upon them. After the great victory, Josiah commanded the sun to stand still and
it delayed going down about a full day. Pretty amazing stuff!

Elijah was man just like us, yet his prayer was so honored by God, that he approached King Ahab and told him that there would be no rain for three and a half years. (1 Kings 17):1 Several years later, God told Elijah to go again to King Ahab and tell him rain was coming.(1 Kings 18:1). Most of us will remember when Elijah dueled it out with the Prophets of Baal at Mount Carmel.

Elijah’s predecessor, Elisha,  grieved watching his master taken up to heaven in a chariot. He then grabbed his masters cloak and came upon the the waters of the Jordan River.

”Where now is the God of Elijah?” he called out.  The waters parted and Elisha crossed the river! Immediately afterward, a company of prophets who saw the miracle exclaimed, “ The spirit of Elijah is resting upon Elisha.” From that very day, Elisha’s anointing and exploits doubled that of his late master. Elisha spoke healing of the bitter water of a town, by throwing salt into it. When he came to a town in the midst of a famine and met a struggling widow, He provided for her an endless supply of oil to pay off her debts and keep her sons from being sold into slavery. Elisha also saved a company of prophets from being poisoned by wild, poisonous gourds that were being stewed for supper, throwing in some “anointed’ flour and it was safe to eat. He also healed Naaman, the commander of King Aram’s army, from leprosy. The rest of the book of 2 Kings is replete with his amazing spiritual exploits.

As I continue believing and decreeing in my healing from Dystonia, I most cherish the account of King Hezekiah. God told the prophet Isaiah to tell the King to get his house in order for he was to die from his illness. The king wept bitterly, reminding God of how faithful he had been to uphold all His commandments to his people. God was merciful to his humble plea and sent Isaiah back to him to tell him that he would live another fifteen years! Here is an example of a prophecy of death, but because of sincere repentance, God can decide to give us one more chance. What a gracious and merciful God we serve.

1 Peter 2-10 exalts the glory of Christ being the living stone and how we are being built a spiritual house and holy priesthood.

We are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people called out of darkness into His marvelous light! Our old testament patriarchs have proved the great and mighty exploits of men and women of God who overcame the most horrific and daunting obstacle and battles.

Too many in Christ’s body are weak, impotent or not walking in the power God has called us to walk in.

Satan had a plan to destroy the Jewish people through an evil man called Haman. The story of Queen Esther tells us about the intuitiveness of Esther’s older cousin, Mordecai, a servant in King Xerxes court. After the king banished Queen Vashti from her position,  Mordecai took advantage of the Kings new edict to find a suitable new queen to takes Vashti’s place. Mordecai was intuitive enough to know his beautiful, younger cousin, Esther, (Hadassah) had an excellent spirit. As the maidens were prepared with beauty rituals to be presented to the king, Esther was noticed and highly favored. Esther was chosen to be the new Queen, but Haman had a hatred for the Jews and managed to get the King to sign a decree to destroy all Jews in the province. Mordecai urged his cousin to petition the King and save the Jews from death. Esther had her maidens and all the Jews pray and fast for three days in the Hopes that God would intervene and they wouldn’t be murdered. When Queen Esther approached the King, she found  grace in his eyes. He reversed the edict and the Jews were not exterminated. Oh the power of prayer and fasting. Esther made her mark in history…one small women, one small voice, but powerful and effective in God.

Many of you need to reread and meditate upon God’s word, the life stories and miracles performed by His faithful men and women. Many of you have placed limitations on your God-ordained abilities by doubt and unbelief. Many will perish because of lack of knowledge and fear, but imagine what you can accomplish when you accept and realize you are fully equipped to slay your Goliath!

Oh my people, have you forgotten the great power I have invested in you to oppose great evil and every assault?

The shepherd boy David did not flinch when the circumcised infidel, Goliath confronted him with a sneer. The fearful Israelites probably said, “We’re finished.” Is that what you are decreeing over your family, prodigal child, your marriage, your health, your financial status or the conflict in the Middle East/Israel?

We have allowed the non believers and atheists  to overturn the right for the unborn to live. Today, millions of unborn children are statistics, denied their right to live. We’ve allowed prayer to be taken out of the schools, public places & governments without any opposition. Is it any wonder, if we continue being spiritually  impotent in the eyes of Satan’s forces, that we too will be in horrible bondage. When we fear being “politically “incorrect,” do we expect God to deliver us from our idolatrous enemies if we bow down to them in fear or apathy.

We called to be set apart, as His sanctified people. We are a royal and powerful nation and priesthood. Today is the day of reckoning, my brothers and sisters and anyone seeking to come out of your destiny-less existence can drink from the River of living water, flowing freely to quench your thirst forever. Yeshua, Jesus Christ is the river of living water. Come and drink and you will never thrust again!

Scoffers will deny the power of our resurrected Christ, but one day, every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord. Psychics, tarot card, palm  readers, witches, warlocks, the members of the Illuninati, this is your last chance before Christ comes to take His people home before the great wrath and judgement falls. Believe it or not, He will not come humbly as a helpless baby in a dirty manger. He will come as the lion of Judah in all His power and glory. I lovingly present this glorious offer to you today, so come and drink before the door to salvation is closed forever!.

Do you believe in the great miracles and exploits of Jehovah God and Jesus, Christ His only begotten Son? Do you believe Jesus when he said, “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” John 14:12. Now is the time of Salvation. Today is your day to accept Him as the Lord of your life. Be not deceived for God is not mocked. Though the vision lingers, it will surely come. Repent and turn away from your sins which separate you from His love, grace and mercy. Accept Christ into your heart today
