Am I content in my knowledge of God? Without peace, has God left me, or have I moved away from Him? Do I recognize that I lack the full knowledge of God? Do I measure my contented heart and find a lack of His peace? Impoverished souls may choose to admit their desperate need for a Savior. While on earth, the Son of God was sent into the world to walk with ordinary and those that considered themselves extraordinary. The ordinary came to know Jesus, and in knowing Him, they came to know His Father. Those that prided themselves on their knowledge of God tended to reject Jesus, or their need for a Savior. The Old Testament testifies a few pre-incarnate manifestations of our Lord Jesus. Daniel 3:25 and Daniel 6:22
"Like a son of the gods." Who was the fourth man? Who walked with Daniel's three friends in the furnace? Who was the angel whom God sent to shut the lions mouth when Daniel was in the den? The Lord Jesus Christ is now absent from us in body, but present with our Father God, and also never forsaking us, ever with us, true to His word, the Comforter was sent to dwell within us, Who is like Him. Today in 2012, when we seek the company of Jesus, we come to know God. Seek the Lord Jesus and find God. The promise is that when we seek Him with all our hearts, we shall surely find Him. Consider your purpose, what you were made for, and what direction, what aim, what goal is worthy of our full attention?
What is eternal life? The answer that Jesus gives is: "This is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent." John 17:3 KNOWLEDGE OF GOD ~ "This is what the Lord says: 'Let not the wise man boast of his wisom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows Me." Jeremiah 9:23-24 Consider what gives God the greatest pleasure? KNOWLEDGE OF HIMSELF. ~ "I desired....the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings" says God Hosea 6:6 KJV

The flawless Author of our souls, has superior authority over, in and throughout ALL people and in all things created. When the occasion arises that we need to know which way to go, we are wise to ask for direction. When we are lost we must trust the authority of Whom we inquire. Having been wrong before, we are skitterish on our own, and perhaps we delay our first step. Like babes we yearn to be picked up and carried across the great abyss that looms before us. Our Father reminds us of His love, and His care for generations of those who followed His advice. He arranged to have His word, His will and His way recorded in one book that we may learn of His provision for our ancestors, that we may recognize, trust, believe and obey the voice of our Shepherd. Jesus said with flawless authority “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and My sheep know Me— just as the Father knows Me and I know the Father—and I lay down My life for the sheep. I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to My voice, and there shall be one flock and one Shepherd. The reason My Father loves Me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of My own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from My Father.” (John 10:11-18) God SPOKE and created the heavens and the earth and every thing in it. God is a communicator. Man does not know who penned the book of Hebrews as God’s Final Word: His Son. "In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, and through whom also He made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being, sustaining all things by His powerful word. After He had provided purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. So He became as much superior to the angels as the name He has inherited is superior to theirs." Scholars think that the book of Hebrews came into being in order to pronounce that Jesus is superior to all else. That He sustains all things by His word. The early Jews who were persecuted for their faith in Jesus as the Messiah were falling away. The book of Hebrews is a sermon full of God's flawless authority in Whom we should turn to when our faith is challenged. We are instructed through progressive revelation to only WORSHIP JESUS, not angels, not man, not statues, nor any created thing. While in prison in Patmos, John wrote down what he saw and heard. "Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. 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 God’s holy people, His bride) Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.” At this I (John) fell at his feet to worship him. But he (the angel) said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus.” Revelation 19:6-10

The day before Thanksgiving 2009, Ben took me on the San Javier Pilgrimage dates back to 1760. The native indians of Loreto had tribes that spoke different languages. The Guaycura of Loreto and the Cochimi of San Javier held entirely differing customs. Padre Jacob wrote "They have no words to express whatever is not material and not perceptible to the senses. If it could not be seen or touched, they had no words to communicate virtue, vices, feelings or quality. Life, death, weather, time, cold, heat, world, rain, truth, friend, honor, decency, faith love, hope, desire, anger, hate, patience, graditude, beauty, happiness could not be put into words. They had words up to the number four, after that the indians simply held up a hand, to signal "MORE". To illustrate the lack of language of the natives the Jesuit priests told the story of a youth (PACO) from San Javier who journeyed to Loreto. The priest in Loreto sent PACO back to San Javier with a letter to Padre Juan Ugarte telling him the latest news and mentioned two loaves of bread he was sending via PACO. Bread was only baked in Loreto and it was a rare treat. On his trek, the PACO tasted the bread and enjoyed it so much he ate all of it. When the Padre read the note he asked PACO to give him what was sent with the note. PACO denied that the Loreto priest had given him anything with the note. Padre Ugarte reminded PACO that he had two loaves of bread. The boy asked "who said so?" Holding up the note the priest said "this". PACO was astounded that a thin piece of paper could speak. The boy stood his ground and replied that if the paper said that he had bread, that the paper was lying. On a return trip with more loaves of bread PACO decided to hide the note behind a tree while he ate the bread so the paper could not see him eat. Padre Ugarte received the second note and said that he knew that PACO had been sent more bread with this note. The boy then admitted that he had eaten the bread on his first journey in front of the paper, but this time he hid himself where the note could not see him. If the note said he ate anything, the note was surely lying because the note did not see him and therefore does not know if he ate bread or what he did. We travelled the same path as PACO to reach San Javier and had I been sent up this 20 mile climb, I would have ate the bread too! This is the staircase that leads up to the roof of San Javier where the bell is. Feeling a peaceful presence I snapped a few shots of the view. Peoples come from all around to prayerfully consider their loved ones, and give thanks while asking Saint San Javier for miracles. Many miracles have occured at San Javier over the years. A new Thanksgiving tradition began in 2009. A trip to Loreto to visit my brother and his bride Jill will replace times shared at the Stockton Yacht Club in years past. On a cool Wednesday morning 11-25-09 the winds shifted our plans for the day. Ben adorned his feet with socks and said "The winds are high, the sea has given us reason to rethink our plans. The Alleycat stays put today so we shall take a private pilgrimage. San Javier is the esteemed 2nd mission which is located beyond the highest pointed mountain 1700 feet above sea level. The stone church in San Javier is protected by the mountains and has been standing since 1744. The ornate alter was carried by burro from Mexico City up the same steep, rocky roads that we climbed on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving! This remote village was established in the early 1700's. Then and now farms grow foods with a year round water supply. Orange groves, vineyards, date palms and fig trees planted by missionaries provide livelihood for residents to this day. What a fantastic journey of reflection on all that we have to be greatful for! Mucho Gracias Benito y Jilly for the perfect tour!

"According to your faith will it be done to you." Thanking God in advance for the plans He has for us, is to believe in the authority of Jesus. Thanking God is to exercise FAITH in what we believe Jesus is able to do in us, for us and through us. According to our FAITH that our Father, who art in heaven, that He gives His best to His children, that He wants to bless us, that His ways are superior to our ways, that His plans are best, and GOOD ~ we ACT in FAITH, trusting GOD in all things, in all circumstances. When we THANK our LORD for the best outcome, in advance of the event, the promotion, or the activity, we trust that He is with us, that He is in us, that He goes before us ~ and we WALK by FAITH, not by sight and we receive His anointing as we GO, as we WALK this way. We get READY to receive His best as we EXPECT that our GOD IS GOOD all the time. When we THANK GOD verbally, and genuinely from our hearts, in advance, He prepares our hearts by expanding us to receive MORE than we ask for! Holy scriptures encourage us and remind us that "Without FAITH, it is impossible to please God". FAITH is NOT a desire to do good, nor is it pretending that we are not incapable without God. Faith is not a feeling. FAITH is EXPECTING GOOD things to come out of every encounter or situation because we know that what God sees in a miserable drunk, is a future evangelist. God sees a potential nurse when He looks at a broken prostitute. Oh Lord gives us eyes to see what you see in every circumstance, and in each person we meet. Give us courage to step out in faith and speak words of faith as we expect Your best! Expecting the best brings honor to God, and it increases our ability to be effective for His kingdom. Expecting the best encourages others to have HOPE! Holy Spirit HELP us to use our tongue NOT as a weapon, but as a blessing. A young scrawny teen looked upon a Giant and expected that his God was bigger, and that God would use his slingshot to bring down his foe! Fill your mouth with WORDS OF FAITH and change the ENVIRONMENT of your home, workplace and church!

SPEAK GOD'S WORD IN FAITH: "May we shout for joy over your victory and lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the LORD grant all your requests." PSALMS 20:5 "He lifts up a banner for the distant nations, He whistles for those at the ends of the earth. Here they come, swiftly and speedily!" ISAIAH 5:26 "Raise a banner on a bare hilltop, shout to them; beckon to them to enter the gates of the nobles." ISAIAH 13:2 “Announce and proclaim among the nations, lift up a banner and proclaim it; keep

nothing back, but say, ‘(Dark)Babylon will be captured; Bel (evil) will be put to shame, Marduk (gangs) filled with terror. Her images will be put to shame and her idols filled with terror.’ JEREMIAH 15:12 More wisdom is found in PROVERBS 31 "Speak up for the people who have no voice, for the rights of all the down-and-outers. Speak out for justice! ~ She senses the worth of her work, is in no hurry to call it quits for the day. ~ Her husband is greatly respected when he deliberates with the city fathers. ~ Her children respect and bless her; her husband joins in with words of praise: 'Many women have done wonderful things, but you've outclassed them all!' Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades. The woman to be admired and praised is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God. Give her everything she deserves! Festoon her life with praises!" THE MESSAGE Proverbs 31 ~ Stand up for the poor and destitute!" Reinforce the guard, station the watchmen, prepare an ambush! The LORD will carry out His purpose, His decree against the people of (darkness) Babylon." JEREMIAH 51:12 "Let him lead me to the banquet hall, and let His banner over me be love." SONG 2:4 Moses built an altar and called it The LORD is my Banner. EXODUS 17:15 The dark is banished from Stockton and from my mind as my Lord Jesus rules! AMENJesus calls us His friend. WOW! There's a fight between my heart and soul. When my pride tries to take control, It's hard to see what I was meant to be. And we are living in the world without a cause, And there's a need that seems impossible, But I can hear, I hear You calling me ~ and I believe God hears our prayer.We speak words of faith over Stockton, over our son Jason and we thank You Lord in advance for the work you are finishing in the hearts of civic leaders and in our family members. We praise You Lord as we surrender all our burdens to You! AMEN

Speak living words of faith over your day, and expect the best. Words spoken in His power, in His annointing are like running water, and our obedience to His will, washes any doubt out as to His capacity, His authority, His capability in our life. God is FAITHFUL and He takes great pleasure in blessing those who speak words of faith and trust Him with the outcome. " But you, beloved, build yourselves up on your most holy faith, make progress, rise like an eagle higher and higher, praying in the Holy Spirit ~ Guard and keep yourselves in the love of God; expect and patiently wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ ~ Now to Him Who is able to keep you without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present [you] unblemished, blameless and faultless before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation with unspeakable, ecstatic delight." JUDE 1:20-24 ~ Speak these words of faith aloud, and trust His promise to never forsake us. Faith words that pour out from a heart filled with His Spirit, are given meaning and understanding by the indwelt Peace, by the One who abides, by the full deposit of the Person of the Holy Spirit. In His Name, and by God's promise, as we abide, as we take a ride in the Presence of Jesus, His JOY overflows supernaturally, inexplicably as it dominates our spirit in the midst of all circumstances. We are possessed by an indwelt promise and a God given appetite to witness the unseen. "Now faith is the substance hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." The mirror of our heart reflects the reality of the unseen, supernatural world of His Kingdom come. By our FAITH we draw the reality of His world into our circumstance. ACCEPT the TRUTH and FEAR NOT HIS PROMISE: "The Peace of God will guard your heart and mind" As mortal beings, our fence and our defenses break down and let God come in and restore and grow us! We are known by God, our names are in His phone book, we are His delight, He sees us as the most beautiful of all creation. Our Father always tells us the whole truth. In life we will face trials, and life will not be easy, or appear perfect, but we are in His eyes. He calls us His friend, and He rejoices in our bloom! We will feel frustrated, impatient, neglected, disrespected, and anxious. Believers know that the cosmic truth is that there is a hell, but as citizens of heaven, who dwell in God's kingdom, in His ever pleasant breeze, in the comfort within our own skin, His abiding JOY in us, our Helper helps us stabilize our FAITH in Jesus. In touch and in tune with the Peace that surpasses all understanding to the onlooking world, we are stilled by God as the Peace, the Holy Spirit is ever in our midst. As we surrender, He flushes out all that is old and that wears us out. Worry and anxiety dissolve in His presence, when we let go and let God do His work in us and through us. IMAGINE our Father taking us on a POWER WALK through the City. With glee we speak words of authority over darkness, we cast out demons, and we reclaim the City of Stockton and fill it to overflowing with His Light and Love! With childlike FAITH, we trust that by His stripes we are healed, and we speak that truth with the Authority of the indwelt Person of the Holy Ghost. Desperate people tend to cry out to God and receive a miracle. The million dollar question is: How desperate are we to experience HEAVEN on EARTH and allow the Holy Spirit to INVADE our circumstance? God's mission to reconcile us to Himself, everyday in every way, in the midst of a trial, in the place of anger, in lieu of frustration, instead of illness, is to LIVE the Gospel as it is in print. The Peace of God abides in us deeply, as deep as the Sea, we come to see His JOY, His Peace is undisturbed by whatever may be visible or audible. Let us trust fully in God, not in our skills, not in our wallet, not in our ways, but in our Almighty Father God and His plans.

Jesus invited us to come close, to touch Him, to enter into His presence. God knows that we are mortal and tend to doubt His unseen Presence, His power, His glory. By faith a woman was drawn to touch His robe and be healed. He drew us to Himself, He chose us, and He gave us the Holy Spirit that we can touch others and cause healing. Jesus chose our parents, and He pre-destined us to love others through Him. He equipped us all with His Spirit, His seed, His wisdom, His beauty, His word, and His unmatched, consistent, pepetural, eternal, unchanging love. Because of His deep ABIDING love, our heavenly Father hugs us with His words of discipline. He commands that we listen to Him, obey Him, and follow His compassionate, humble, approachable, kind ways. Our obedience brings Him pleasure and we are blessed beyond measure. Consider how much God VALUES relationships above accomplishments. God created the universe, all the stars, animals, flowers, fish and He does not boast of those, but He does boast of His expectations for His children, who He calls friends. We are called to love God above all else, for He is our soul Provider, the only One who can satisfy the NEED He placed in LOVE as we are LOVED and to forgive completely, to forget the hurt, the crime, and SORROW NO MORE! We are to speak words of life to one another. God sent Himself down to earth, to tell us through His son Jesus: "Live in me. Make your home in Me just as I do in you. In the same way that a branch can't bear grapes by itself but only by being joined to the Vine, you can't bear fruit unless you are joined with Me. "I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you're joined with Me and I with you, the relation remains intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can't produce a thing. Anyone who separates from Me is deadwood, gathered up and thrown on the bonfire. But if you make yourselves at home with Me and My words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon. This is how my Father shows who He is — when you produce grapes, when you mature as My disciples. "I've loved you the way my Father has loved Me. Make yourselves at home in My love. If you keep my commands, you'll remain intimately at home in My love. That's what I've done—kept My Father's commands and made Myself at home in His love. "I've told you these things for a purpose: that My joy might be your joy, and your joy wholly mature. This is my command: Love one another the way I loved you. This is the very best way to love. Put your life on the line for your friends. You are My friends when you do the things I command you. I'm no longer calling you servants because servants don't understand what their master is thinking and planning. No, I've named you friends because I've let you in on everything I've heard from the Father." JOHN 15:1-11 THE MESSAGE is to LOVE each other with the Love Jesus poured into thee. While Job was lamenting and reflecting his sad life, the Presence of God pierced his heart. In The Message JOB 42:6 "I admit it. I was the one. I babbled on about things far beyond me, made small talk about wonders way over my head. You told me, 'Listen, and let me do the talking. Let me ask the questions. You give the answers.' I admit I once lived by rumors of you; now I have it all firsthand—from my own eyes and ears! I'm sorry—forgive me. I'll never do that again, I promise! I'll never again live on crusts of hearsay, crumbs of rumor." Then our distant cousin David sang PSALM 112:1-10 "Hallelujah! Blessed man, blessed woman, who fear God, Who cherish and relish his commandments, Their children robust on the earth, And the homes of the upright—how blessed! Their houses brim with wealth And a generosity that never runs dry. Sunrise breaks through the darkness for good people— God's grace and mercy and justice! The good person is generous and lends lavishly; No shuffling or stumbling around for this one, But a sterling and solid and lasting reputation. Unfazed by rumor and gossip, Heart ready, trusting in God, Spirit firm, unperturbed, Ever blessed, relaxed among enemies, They lavish gifts on the poor— A generosity that goes on, and on, and on. An honored life! A beautiful life!" THE MESSAGE of Love Relations, is to praise God in all things. August 6, 2012 Michael and Barbara agreed with God's plan, and to His glory, they agreed to love one another as a couple for Christ. Halleluiah ~ for He changes hearts and leads us in love.

Rescue Angels

ACTS 27:23-25 Paul was annointed with appearances "Last night an angel of the God whose I am ~ and whom I serve ~ stood beside me and said, 'Do not be afraid, Paul. You must stand trial before Caesar; and God has graciously given you the lives of all who sail with you.' ~ So keep up your courage, men, for I have faith in God that it will happen just as he told me." Supernaturally, Paul received instruction and encouragement through the appearance of an angel. Was it Jesus who came to Paul in verse 25? Regardless, it was the God ordained revelation, appearance, annointing of Paul. "For the eyes of the LORD range (run to and fro) throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him." Jesus is not looking for a perfect person, we are all sinners, we all fall short of His glory, yet He seeks a heart who longs to serve Him, to honor Him with their very best. Hebrews 1:14 "Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?" Our angels listen to what we speak ~ when we speak outloud in agreement with God ~ we have given our angels an assignment ~ to work on our behalf concerning the promise of God. Whom has God sent into your life to witness His love? Have you thanked God for them? Have you hugged them? Hebrews 13:8"Jesus Christ is God and He is the same yesterday and today and forever." He never changes in love, doctrine or feeling toward all humanity, all creation ~ therefore, He appears to people today as He always has."The Supremacy of Christ ~ Colossians 1:15 "He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And He is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in Him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross." GOD promotes His Word above all else. Psalm 138:2
"I will bow down toward Your Holy temple
and will praise Your Name
for Your love and Your faithfulness,
for You have exalted above all things
Your Name and Your Word." There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, Who came from the Father, full of grace and truth." John 14:21 "Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show Myself to him." Galatians 1:12- Paul said that man did not teach him God's word. "I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ." The word 'revelation' in Greek means to appear, to manifest or to be coming. Jesus first appeared to Paul in Acts 9:4 James 4:8 "Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded." He is pleading with humanity to come clean, to confess, to ask for help to keep focused on Him. He is inviting all humanity to come into His holy presence. God does not play favorites! He annoints, He appears, He speaks to the hearts of those who choose to be close to Him, to know Him, who long to hear from Him. LOOK UP THESE PASSAGES about visions, appearances from our Holy Father: Jeremiah 33:3 ~ Jeremiah 29:13 ~ Matthew 6:33 ~ Psalm 34:10 ~ Psalm 23:1 ~ John 5:14 ~ Mark 11:24 ~ Mark 9:23 ~ John 16:24 THE THINGS OF GOD are of the Spirt world ~ Hebrews 10:21"and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water." EZEKIEL 34:11 "For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I myself will search for my sheep and look after them. As a shepherd looks after his scattered flock when he is with them, so will I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness. I will bring them out from the nations and gather them from the countries, and I will bring them into their own land." God keeps His promises ~ 2 Corinthians 10:5 "We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." Proverbs 23:7 THINK of JESUS "As a person thinks in their heart ~ so are they" My heart is where the Holy Spirit dwells. The eternal Word of God is the food for our souls, it is our spiritual sustenance. Romans 8:28 "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose." Mark 11:24 "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." Matthew 5:6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." Matthew 16:19 "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." We release our angels by speaking in agreement with God's Word. We bind with the Word of God the angels that are at our disposal, to do God's will. When we agree with the Word of God, and speak the Word of God with the authority of faith bound to belief in the power of God's Word, we release our angels to do His work. Matthew 26:53 "Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?" Our angels rejoice when they are released to go to work on the behalf of God's will ~ which is to prosper us, not harm us. Psalm 103:19 "The Lord hath prepared His throne in the heavens; and His kingdom ruleth over all." The kingdom of God is within us ~ where the Holy Spirit resides ~ as Jesus promised that He would be with us always! The will of God for His chosen ~ is that we love God with all our hearts, that we speak His word boldly and call forth His plans. Psalm 13:20 "Bless the Lord, ye His angels, that excel in strength, that do His commandments, hearkening unto the voice of His Word." NOTICE that our angels harken to the voice of God's Word. The word voice in Hebrew means 'to call aloud, sound, proclaim'. What we proclaim OUTLOUD give voice to God's Word, and the angels are released to go out and bring forth all that is required for it to come to pass. Hebrews 1:14 "Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?" Our angels listen to what we speak ~ when we speak outloud in agreement with God ~ we have given our angels an assignment ~ to work on our behalf concerning the promise of God. Psalm 107:20 "He sent His word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction." God rejoices when we take up our cross, when we pick up His Words, our Sword of Truth, and command His angels to deliver us from evil, AMEN ~ We are to be "DOERS" of the Word and walk victorious and bring God all the honor and glory! Ephesians 5:17 v"Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is." God does not hope that we can obey, He gave us the power to obey, to understand Him, and His will. Ephesians 3:4 "In reading this, then, you will be able to understand My insight into the mystery of Christ" When we read the Word of God, we are given ears to hear, and the Holy Spirit gives us clarity, and a God given AHA, a sense of knowing what God is saying to us. He gives us understanding of His will for us. Let us know, let us be assured, let us be certain that God intended that His Word, His Son, His truth be known by us, as He has revealed by the Holy Spirit in us "The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law." 1 Corinthians 2:9 "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him" Lord Jesus thank You for all that You have prepared for me to receive ~ and I ask my angels GO FORTH and cause all necessary things to come into being that I may manifest Your best use of me, Your willing and faithful servant. THE HOLY TRINITY, the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit John 3:34 "For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit." God has poured out His spirit, in us, for us ~ to call upon, for us to speak His Word aloud, in agreement ~ to bring God unlimited pleasure in our obedience to His plan to prosper us beyond our human capacity to imagine. "For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit." If we desire to bring God glory, if our love for God gives us the courage to speak our hearts aloud, as we rise up to "DO" what He asks us to do, then we cause His JOY to be complete in us! John 17:18 "As You (God) sent Me (Jesus) into the world, I (Jesus) have sent them (believers) into the world" According to Galatians 5:22-23 the fruits of the Holy Spirit are established in us because of God's unconditional love for us. 1 Corinthians 12:4 "There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men." There are many different gifts, all from the Holy Spirit. Surrendering our will, our ways, to the Holy Spirit ~ when we submit to the authority within, the more we will be changed into the likeness and effectiveness of Christ on earth. AMEN Romans 3:28 "For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from observing the law." If we think that our purpose, our faith, our relationship with God is measured by our deeds, then we have been deceived. Phillipians 4:8 "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." There is no knowledge on earth that can compare to the positive, effective, nourishing, living Word of God!

Ephesians 4:22-24 "You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness." John 3:16 and John 17:3 ETERNAL LIFE is NOW "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Eternal life began the moment I was born again. As a believer eternal life is NOW. The Author of life defined eternal life for us. "And this IS life eternal, that they might KNOW Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, Whom Thou hast sent." John 17:3 Knowing in the original language speaks of personal, intimate, experiential knowledge. It is when you KNOW that you KNOW, that Jesus is your Strength, that when you are weak, He is strong, He is the same, that Jesus never lies, He never changes. When we die to ourselves, when we are exhausted and let go of what we know, we surrender to His way, His peace, and THEN we experience His MANIFEST presence intimately. It is not knowing about Jesus because you heard the story of His birth. Knowing Jesus personally, is to know His word is alive, that He is active, that His light has entered your soul, that He has changed you from who you were, to who you are in Him. We get to come to Him, and to know Him by spending time with in slience, and in awe we read His Words, and we talk to Him, We worship His Presence, His word, His ways, His will for us. Jesus gave His life so that we can KNOW HIM in an intimate, close and personal way. As Jesus knows me, my intimate secrets, my personality, my heart, my gifts ~ I want to know more of Him. Jesus is closer to me than any person could ever be ~ He gave me all that I have, and He encourages me to come to Him for all my needs. Lord Jesus, You have given me all of You, the person of the Holy Spirit, never departs from me. It is my sincere desire to fully grasp and behold this amazing love You have for me so that I can return a great portion of that Love back to You. Deuteronomy 28:2 "All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God" Thank You Lord Jesus for all the blessings that are overtaking my family now! Living in Your eternal presence ~ is the best blessing of all! Psalm 37:3 Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in Him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for Him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes." Those who hope in the LORD and speak His Word aloud will engage the help of His angels! We can shout Halleluiah for we inherit the full promises of God. If the LORD delights in a man's way, He makes his steps firm; though he stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand. Psalm 19:14“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.”- May the words of my heart minister to my Lord ~ Oh God my Father, You are such a good God, a wonderful counselor, a perfect dad and I love You! Because God loves so deeply, so completely ~ He too is blessed by hearing my genuine praise for all that He does for me! A BIG LESSON OF TRUST: Trust God in all things, know with certainty and His assuring Word that in the unseen realm, Angels surround thee, and they work to guide and protect God's beloved. It takes time before what God has done in the spiritual world manifests in the physical world. REMEMBER: God is always at work, in all things, all the time ~ and He loves to hear from us! PSALM 52:8 "But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever." Jesus loves you, Jesus cares for you, Jesus dispatched angels to watch over you, and Jesus will return to earth, and we will see Jesus face to face! “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne." Matthew 25:31 ~ His living word also reminds us to hang on to what we have, and that is our certain FAITH that He is coming back for us. "And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens." Mark 13:27
