Divine isolation

I’ve been in a very long season of isolation. When I say isolation, I mean having no one to bounce my spiritual concerns off of. No one to give me fulfilling spiritual advice. Every prayer, struggle, concern and doubt has always been forwarded to God the Father alone. 

I have friends, yes. But for some odd reason, God pulls me back from them when it comes to my spirituality. Many times I’ve felt so alone and so misunderstood because God has not anointed anyone (other than my husband and Pastor) to guide me. There have been plenty of times that even going to my husband or my pastor has returned to me void. 

It’s not their fault at all and I’m starting to see the light now. God needs me to trust Him. I used to have a terrible habit of feeding off of people rather than the source of my spiritual meal. It’s been revealed to me that this isolation season is over and I’m blogging to tell you that it isn’t terrible to have your own encounter. When you feed off of your friends expierences or grab a spiritual snack from a relative, you always leave missing out on a full course meal. You think youre full, but you’re not super dooper button open belly out full. 

I’ve had a lot of questions, doubts and discouraging moments that have been completely satisfied when I directed them to Him. Give it a shot. Concerns + God – People = Revelation.  

Just a note: My answers were found in scripture every. Single. Time. 

Lam 3:24-30

Anointing 

Anointing,
The word seemed so unclear to me but now that I’m starting to see a strong anointing flowing over my life, I’m getting a clearer picture of the power of Your anointing.
When God has anointed you to accomplish something according to His will, He will place everything that is needed right in front of you to make it come to pass. People will begin to find favor in you. God will start to remove people from your life that hold you back and God will start taking you out of situations that drag you to a place where you could start focusing on that task you are anointed to accomplish.
Timing is everything. Doors don’t begin to open until the time is right. People’s hearts won’t start moving in your favor until HIS TIME IS RIGHT. I can’t explain in words how God is moving for me. All I can say is that HE IS and every single thing He promised me is coming to pass.
I’ve also been able to witness an anointing coming to a close. I’ve had a whole lot of energy and capacity to fulfil ministerial duties and suddenly hear God say, “It’s time to go to the next level”. Doors begin to close and new doors swing open. 
I’m genuinely thankful for Your faithfulness oh God! You said it, and I’m witnessing it firsthand coming together for me. Please remind me to be grateful even during the setbacks. Please help me be faithful in putting The Kingdom first and most of all, please continue to guide me so that one day I could testify of how great You are.
 

3 Realms of the Prophetic

Sermon by Pastor Bernard Greene

3 Realms of the prophetic

1st: Realm of understanding

  • When God speaks directly without interpretation.
  • Forth telling
  • You couldn’t argue what God said.

2nd: Realm of consciousness

  • When prophecy speaks to the Mind, emotion and what’s hidden.
  • When prophecy reaches the “Soulish realm”. Intent and motives are also spoken to.

3rd: Realm of the Supernatural- The most potent

  • Foretelling: To God, prophecy is not considered “future” but truth.
  • Faith makes the future real to us NOW.
  • Supernatural prophecy is when God speaks to the impossible.

Prophecy- The word of the Lord translated to us.

How do you receive your prophetic word? Where does your seed fall?

  • Highlight: We don’t control the seed; we determine how the seed falls.
  1. On the wayside? Where the birds came and ate it?
  2. Shallow ground? Sprang up quickly and scorched due to lack of roots?
  3. Among thorns? Grew up and choked?
  4. Good ground? Where it produces a crop a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.

Reference: Matthew 13

Why do I write?

It’s a burning passion to get these thoughts on paper. If not, they’d be lost forever. 

How would I return to them? With time, the details fade away and I can’t afford such loss. With time, the story changes to what could have been or what was wished to be. 

Expierence should be quickly documented. Otherwise, it converts into a fable. We need to absorb authentic stories the faces tell and not a made up dream. Real life is just as eventful. Perhaps more. 

If I were to start a movement…

If I were to start a movement. What would it be for?
Defending the REAL Christian. 

But many so called “Christians” would join.

Then I would have to remove of them. 

Which would make me a judge.

Scripture says we shouldn’t do. 

Then I would be kicked out of the movement. 

Then there would be no movement. 

Maybe I just want to stand up for something. 

There is injustice indeed. 

People just hate the modern day Christian. 

But Jesus said that’s how it would be.

Perhaps this movement is anti-Christian. 

I can’t stop The Lord’s plans you see. 

I guess the only movement I can make,

Is the one that starts in me. 

Now, let US make man 

Before my eyes, I didn’t have to look far. I didn’t have to search vigorously, or even willingly. I simply touched the border of Jesus’ garment and it hit me like a ton of bricks. 

“KG, let’s start a daily devotional. Even if you have to start at Genesis. You know you’d find something new.”

I went for it. Genesis 1:1 God created the heavens and the earth…

Wow God, I see what people mean when they say You make something out of nothing. The Earth had no form, darkness everywhere. And You? So sovereign and so in control, spoke light and it became. But here I am stressing about my finances as Christmas approaches  not realizing that with just one word, You can make a miracle. 

That was just the beginning. I continued to read and I bumped into this gem. 

Gen 1:26 Then God said, “Now let’s make humans who will be like us. 

Let’s?! 

Us?!

It’s clear as day! Jesus and the Holy Spirit were present during the creation of the earth. 

Living in a society that tries to offer hope from someone or something other than Jesus brings uncertainty but reading this gives me confidence to stand for what is true. 

Jesus is true. The comfort of the Holy Spirit is tangible and proven. God’s powerful essence, unquestionable. 

To even think that the stars in the sky, the moon, the sun just simply appeared by accident requires more faith than to believe a powerful, almighty being Who created it all. 

Am I that human? Am I like You? Let that be my desire every single day. 

You gotta know

Stephen

Stephen: The first Christian who was martyred in the book of acts.

There were many false accusations that stirred up against him. Instead of defending himself, he preached the gospel and told the Jews that they rejected their savior.

Then, he was stoned to death. 

I always find myself defending my spiritually. Stephen shows me that it isn’t necessary. 

He could have used that moment to claim his innocence. He found something much more important than that. 

So important, it was worth dying for. 

Afraid of what?

So many uncertainties and frequent human inconsistencies leave so much room for fear. Fear that perhaps our comfort gets torn out from under our feet. That in an instant, our lives go from a constant, subtle wave to a thunderous storm tossing us left and right resulting in our destruction. 

Have no fear, The Lord says that He is our stronghold. That throughout the storm, He is the lighthouse in the middle of the ocean that never moves; a strong tower that remains sustained. We run to It and are saved. 

I can’t deny being provoked by the storm to make drastic decisions coming from fear. What I can say is, moving according to fear leads to more uncertainty. 

Let’s put our emotions aside a move towards what scripture directs us to do. God is always right. We, on the other hand, are most likely wrong.

Remembering Past = Faith for the Future

I love to see how far I’ve come in this Christian walk. I enjoy going back to old blogs remembering how I felt when I wrote them, remembering how some blogs were written out of spite or out of anger. I look back and remembered how I felt; as if I knew it all. No way am I going to knock myself down for it. Those feelings were genuine and just because it isn’t relevant now doesn’t mean that it’s not important. 

It’s sad how we sometimes feel the best solution to our mind battles is to pretend the past never existed. We drown in our guilt from past decision or past mistakes instead of embracing them just as Psalms 77:11 says. 

Is it hard to remember how the Lord delivered us from our errors? Is it difficult to review all the times the Lord blessed us despite of our foolishness. Is it hard to be honest with our mistakes and to not…pretend. I have to admit, these things can be difficult for some including myself. It’s hard for me to admit to MYSELF that I carry envy in my heart. An envy that I still ask God why its presence still exists in me. I’m learning today that God uses my struggle to remind me what He took me out of. To remind me that although people can do what I wish I can do or posses what I wish I had doesn’t mean that I am less than (<). It means that I am not meant to be anyone else. That God has blessed me in specific areas according to HIS will. Not mine. 

See, it’s not terrible to admit to your sin. It’s not terrible to hold onto a piece of your past. It isn’t the end of the word if you be just a little transparent. Being honest and looking back to the days of old shouldn’t bring you to a bad place rather, it should bring you to a new place. A place where you begin to see some change in your being. The way you walk, talk and act. 

No I won’t go back and delete previous blogs or delete previous statuses on my Facebook or remove old photos from my IG. I’m happy. If you don’t like me at my state of growing and learning, than you won’t like me now cuz guess what? 

I am still growing and learning. 

Experience: I thought I knew

These past few months have kept my eyebrows in the raised position for many reasons. I wish I could get into detail but unfortunately I have yet to find the words to explain exactly how I’ve been feeling. Lately, I’ve been asking myself the same question. “You think you know huh? You think you know?”
My answer?

“Ha! Not anymore.”

I have been through plenty of…things in this Christian walk to be able to say confidently that I have some meaningful testimonies. I’ve seen God work in my life firsthand and I share my experiences with others hoping they would grasp an idea of how God functions.

How God functions?!

YHVH is NOT a toy that when you flip the “on” switch, He lights up and sings a tune. He’s not a computer that when you press the “backspace” key, you can delete a letter or a sentence. God is not a television that when you click guide, you can view upcoming episodes. Let me try to explain.

I spoke of God as if I spoke of a “thing” that responds based on my action. If I prayed an hour, my sadness would cease. Yes, He has delivered me that same way but I shouldn’t assume that to be the ONLY way.

Once, I had to make some quick decisions and I fasted for a week. God responded by telling me what my next steps should be. I shouldn’t assume that fasting is the ONLY way to find help in regards to my decisions for my future.

If you give generously, God would bless your finances right? How can I tell someone else to do the same if they have nothing to give?  I portrayed God as some kind of genie.  You rub a lamp and He responds by granting 3 wishes. That he is not.

Why do I sound unsettling? I am. When I pressed the “on” button in my life, sometimes God’s volume went up. I would press the guide button and God would go to channel 5. I would lower the volume and God would play a movie.

I have to admit, there were times I did nothing for the Kingdom, and God responded with blessings as if I’ve done tons of Christian things. God, I understand.

You are not a God of MY personal experience. You don’t maneuver in someone else’s life based on how you moved in mine. I shouldn’t guide someone in their struggle based on how I was guided through my own. Everyone is different and everyone absorbs the matters of God in unlike ways. My job isn’t to determine the best solutions to one’s storm. My job is to express God’s goodness in mine. Not based on what I did but based on what HE did.

God’s ways are not ours. The more we think we know, the less we actually know. Therefore, at times, my response will be, “I don’t know.”

And that’s okay
