The Glory of God is On the Inside of YOU, Waiting to Be Released!

It’s exciting to have your needs met by faith in the Word of God! It’s great to receive healing when you’re sick. It’s marvelous when God lifts you out of financial difficulties and supplies your needs supernaturally. It is a thrilling experience when, by standing in faith on God’s promises, you step out of trouble and into victory.

If you know what that’s like, you’re probably saying, “Oh, yes! Amen, Brother Copeland. That’s the greatest way to live!”

There was a time when I would have agreed.

But fasten your seat belt, my friend. God has shown me in His Word that He has something even better for us. It’s a life so powerful, it exceeds anything we could ever ask or think, a life so full of the fiery light of God that darkness of every kind flees from its very presence.

I’m aware that there are some religious folks who would rather I didn’t say such things. They don’t think we should ever expect anything grand and glorious in this world—just in the world to come. They try to keep people from getting their hopes up.

But I want you to know something right now: My greatest intention is to get your hopes up. When I say “hope,” I’m not talking about the weak, wistful kind of wishing the world calls hope. I’m talking about real, Bible hope, the kind of hope the Apostle Paul was referring to when he said: “For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ [the Anointed of God], according to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed…” (Philippians 1:19-20).

The terms earnest expectation and hope found in that scripture come from two Greek words, each of which can be accurately translated hope. Paul put both of them side by side for emphasis. If you’ll research them, you’ll find they mean a confident expectation, a happy anticipation of good, a strained expectancy and eager longing. They refer to an expectation so strong that it absorbs all your attention.

Raise Your Sights

If you know how to live by faith, you’ve experienced that kind of hope. Maybe you’ve been sick, for example, and you set your hope on the fact that by the stripes of Jesus, you were healed (I Peter 2:24).

You began to meditate on those scriptures until you built an inner image of yourself healed. As that image grew more crisp and clear, you began to expect—or hope for—that image to become reality. Eventually, faith rose up, put substance to that internal image and turned it into an external reality.

What you did was activate the scriptural process described in Hebrews 11:1: “Faith is the substance of things hoped for….” That spiritual process always works the same way. Hope forms the image according to the Word, then faith rises up and gives substance to that image, making it a reality in the natural, physical realm.

So, in the light of all God has promised us in His Word, what are you and I to expect? What should we be hoping for? What inner image should so capture our hearts and minds that it is all we can see?

Certainly, healing is great. Financial supply is also great. But could it be that God has something even grander for us to fix our hope upon?

Yes, He does according to Romans 5:1-2: “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ [the Anointed One]: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

Read that last phrase again. It says we’re to rejoice in the hope of the glory of God! We’re to expect the glory, not just the healing!

As long as you just expect healing, you’ll always be battling it out with your flesh. But if you expect the glory, you’ll be raising your spiritual sights to something bigger than healing. You’ll be expecting the very presence of God to rise up in you so powerfully that instead of believing for healing every six weeks, you’ll walk in divine health every day!

When you expect the glory, you’ll start living like what you really are—joint heirs with Jesus!

That’s Heavy, Man What do I mean by the glory?

The first time the glory is mentioned is in the book of Genesis and it’s referring to the wealth of God. So, God’s glory includes His wealth, but it’s much, much more than that. The word glory actually means “heavyweight.” God is heavy with everything you could ever want or need. He is so heavy with healing that if everyone in the whole world believed Him for healing at once, no one would have to wait until tomorrow to get healed because God got tired.

In the book of Exodus, God’s glory could be seen going before the Israelites in a pillar of a cloud by day and in a pillar of fire by night (Exodus 13:21). Habakkuk described God’s glory as lightning-like shafts of splendor that streamed from His hands. “…and there [in the sunlike splendor] was the hiding place of His power” (Habakkuk 3:4, The Amplified Bible). And when Ezekiel saw God in His glory, he said He was a fire from the loins up and from the loins down (Ezekiel 8:2).

The fire of God is called the glory. The wind of God is called the glory. The smoke of God is called the glory. The fullness of God is called the glory. It is all the glory because the glory of God refers to the supernatural life and essence of God. The very power that makes Him God!

Many have thought that kind of awesome glory must be reserved for God and God alone. Not according to the Bible. Psalms 8:5 tells us that in the beginning man was crowned with that glory—crowned with the same fire and flame of beauty that was on God Himself.

To crown means to anoint! God put His hands on their heads and crowned them with His own presence and glory so that they began to shine just like He shines. They were not standing unclothed and vulnerable to the elements but surrounded and protected by a shimmering force field of glory.

That glory was lost to mankind when Adam sinned. But what most believers don’t realize is that the glory was restored when Jesus was resurrected! Romans 6:4 says not only that “Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father” but also “even so [or by that same glory] we also should walk in newness of life.”

You and I are supposed to be walking in the glory! We get a glimpse of what that’s like in the Bible account of the glory flowing out of the Apostle Peter with such force that people were healed as he walked by them: “Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them” (Acts 5:15). It wasn’t Peter’s shadow that healed them but that field of glory that surrounded him.

That’s what God put hope in you to expect. The glory! Not just healing. Not just increase of finances. Not just deliverance. All those things are great and they’re all available to us, but God wants us to raise our expectations higher than that. He wants us to expect the glory! Everything we could ever need, and more than we would ever want, can be found in the glory of God!

It’s a Mystery Where is that glory? Not off in heaven somewhere, waiting for some great prophet of faith to pull it down. Not hovering out there behind heaven’s gates. It is inside you!

It is inside you!

I can just hear your mind working: Oh, man! I just can’t understand how that can be!

I know you can’t. It’s a mystery! As the Apostle Paul said in Colossians 1:26-27: “Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ [or the Anointing] in you, the hope of glory.”

Do you realize what that verse is saying? It’s saying that the anointing of Jesus Himself, the very glory of God that raised Him from the dead, is residing right now within you and every other believer on the face of this earth. II Corinthians 4 confirms that fact, saying:

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure [what treasure? the glory of God!] in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us…. For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh (verses 6-7, 11).

You are as big on the inside as all of heaven! The glory of God is in you. The faith of God is in you. The love of God is in you. The mind of Christ, the Anointed One, is in you. All the fruit of the spirit is in you. Healing is in you. Deliverance is in you. All the wealth of heaven itself is in you. Those things were born in you when you were born again and they ought to be flowing out of that mortal, subject-to-death, meat-and-blood-and-bone body you’re living in right now! The glory of God should be pouring out of that earthen vessel!

Why isn’t it? Because we’ve never developed the expectancy for it.

We’ve had the idea that glory will only come when God decides Boy, I’m going to show them something today. They haven’t seen My glory for 2,000 years. Then, Pow! He just shoots the earth with some big glory gun!

No! The glory of God is within us! It is going to manifest when we meditate on the glory of God so much that hope rises up and provides an image. Then faith will release the glory of God from the inside of us where we can’t see it—to the outside where we can see it!

Remember the words Jesus spoke to Martha when Lazarus died? He told her, “Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?” (John 11:40).

Those words are just as true for us as they were for Martha. If we’ll believe for the glory, if we’ll meditate on the Word of God until we develop our hope and begin to intensely expect the glory, then faith will become the substance of it—and we’ll begin to see it.

Does that sound wild to you? Well, it’s not!

If you’ll go back and read the Bible, you’ll see that’s what Christianity is all about. God intended for the Body of Christ to walk through this earth with such a manifestation of His presence in our lives that it would either scare people spitless…or draw them into the kingdom of God!

The Apostle Paul, knowing God intended us to have a foretaste of the resurrected body right here on the earth, wrote: “[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him…and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection…that if possible I may attain to the…resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body]” (Philippians 3:10-11, The Amplified Bible).

I’ve experienced little touches of that kind of glory and, believe me, I’m eager for more. More is coming, too!

Ashes Under Our Feet Malachi 4:2-3 promises: “But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.”

Notice that scripture said “Sun of righteousness” not “Son of righteousness.” It’s talking about a bright, blazing glory. And the wings it refers to aren’t birds’ wings, they’re flames of fire that are shaped like wings.

But most exciting of all is the fact that Malachi didn’t say that “He shall go forth.” He said, “[You] shall go forth.” You and I are the ones who are going to go forth with this blazing glory—the same glory that appeared as a pillar of fire by night and cloud by day…the same glory that filled the temple with such power the priests couldn’t approach the altar without being knocked backward…the same glory that raised Jesus from the dead…the same glory that God said would fill the whole earth—that same glory is what we’ll use to tread down the devil until he is ashes under our feet!

The expectancy of that glory is going to grow so strong between now and Jesus’ return that it is going to fill churches. It’s going to come on congregations with such power that people are going to run from all over the neighborhood to find out what it is.

The glory is coming! Your confession of faith and your expectancy are going to pull it out of you, and you’re going to walk in that glory right in the face of hell and everything it has to offer.

Dare to release your expectancy of the glory.

Before long you’ll realize…you haven’t seen anything yet!

Amid All These Things…

sunbeams2

Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors [m]and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.  Romans 8:37

This scripture has run through my mind for three days.  The word that strikes me more than any is “amid”.  Amid…in the midst of, while the war is raging, during the trial, not after…AMID, ALL these things we are MORE than conquerors….

As I pondered this scripture, I thought of the author of Romans and what had to be happening to him as he wrote it.  Paul was not  imprisoned at this time but had been imprisoned earlier for the cause of Christ.  I don’t know of anyone who went through more persecution than Jesus other than Paul! 

Paul suffered so many things.   Paul suffered shipwreck, snake bite, stoning, being beaten, locked in stocks where his legs were held out straight and his back was bent and his hands locked into place at his feet for hours, possibly days at a time!  Yet, Paul could write when he wasn’t in stocks, in the midst of it all, he and the church were more than conquerors!  Amazing!

The prison systems we have today are no picnic but they are governed and have set regulations so they are not considered inhumane, but still carry a definite punishment.  In Paul’s day there were no regulations.  Prisons were a horror.  You can imagine the living conditions.  No formal plumbing, stench and bacteria surrounded the prisoners.  There was no health department to make sure the bacteria didn’t make it into the food they were served.  Disease and death were all around because the conditions were so deplorable.  If the absolute filth didn’t get you, the prisoners would.  During the time of Nero when arenas were filled with people excited to see Christians slaughtered and literally eaten alive by lions while Nero played his fiddle and as the crowds cheered, can you only imagine what they thought should be punishable by imprisonment.  It had to be horrendous.

Romans was not written while Paul was in prison but at the end of his third missionary journey.  Paul had known persecution and prison before he wrote this letter to the Romans, and as we know, would face death for teaching and proclaiming the gospel.  Yet Paul still wrote “amid all these things….”  Many of us get upset over such small and trivial things such as when we get home and realize we forgot a grocery item and have to turn around and go back and get it!  Or when someone says something we don’t like or care to hear. 

As I thought of this scripture and all that Paul had gone through with such a good attitude, I was headed to the city.  This particular day had been a hard one for me.  I began to compare my “hard day” with Paul’s life of “hard days”.  Still, nonetheless, it was a day I was ready to put behind me! 

I was crossing a bridge that brings me to another town before I get to the city and something caught my eye.  I looked up and the sky was particularly cloudy.  A cold front was heading our way and rain clouds had rolled in, but in the MIDST of those clouds there was a hole in the middle of the clouds.  It was ever so slight but through that hole came literal beams of light!!  God spoke to my heart and said, “No matter how dark it seems, the sun is still shining just as brightly as ever behind the darkness and there will be a break in the clouds!”

I went about another ten miles and looked up again.  In the midst of all the storm clouds, in one place, they had totally broken and the sun was visible with all of its light!  In that particular spot, instead of dreariness there was utter radiance as though it were spring instead of fall. 

That is how it is in our lives.  When our health seems to be faltering, when a loved one leaves and our world seems to be crashing all around us, when Christmas is fast approaching and the company hands out pink slips, when you feel as though you are facing the world alone and have no idea where help will come from this time, the SON is still shining and a break will come in the clouds of your life!  You and I are MORE than conquerors in the great big middle of it all!  How?  Through Christ Jesus Who gives us a SURPASSING victory!  We don’t barely make it through!  We make it through and gain ground because of Jesus and what HE has done!

The fight is not ours, but the rest from battling is.   The victory is not ours to be won, but to be taken hold of and received!  How do we do this?  By resting in faith in God’s word and His integrity to keep it!  By knowing what HE says about our situations and the promise He has made to ALWAYS deliver us out of them to a higher and blessed place!  Just as it says in our scripture, we are “conquerors THROUGH”  Christ Jesus who loves us! 

Love always wins…always!  No matter what the situation you are facing, this time is no different!  God has made a covenant (a binding contract) with us that cannot be broken by Him.  He tells us in His Word, when the sun fails to shine and the moon fails to appear, when night no longer turns to day and day to night, only then can that covenant be broken.  That is a stout and remaining promise!  Did the sun shine today?  Did night come?  If the answer is yes, and we know it is, then the promise holds!  You hold to the promise, too!

Blessings to you, precious reader!  I will see you soon!

An Ambassador of Love

an ambassador of love

God is love. You’ve probably been able to quote that scripture ever since you toddled out of your first little Sunday school class.  But come on now, be honest. Is God really love to you? He isn’t in the minds of most people. They think God is following them around with a big stick, ready to smack them over the spiritual head every time they sin.

I don’t even have to ask them to know it. All I have to do is watch how they treat other people. They’re smacking everyone around them with their own little stick of criticism and judgment. They’re constantly hurting and being hurt.It’s a painful way to live. I’ve tried it. I wasn’t a sinner at the time, either. I was a born-again child of God. I knew about and lived by faith. But I’ll tell you, it was hard work. And it produced very limited results.  Then some years ago, God began to reveal something to me that changed everything. It’s a revelation that is still unfolding to this day. A revelation of His love.

One Man’s Cry

That’s a revelation desperately needed in the Church today. You see, as a body we haven’t expressed to the world the love of God. We’ve told them that He’s moral, that He’s right, that He’s powerful and a hundred other things. But we’ve failed to effectively demonstrate to them the life-changing fact that He loves them.  Yet when you look at the life of Jesus, He communicated love more than anything else. His whole mission on earth was to express—to embody and personify—the love of God.

He went to extreme lengths to prove to even the most sinful of men that God loved them. Luke 8 tells us of a time when Jesus had preached and ministered all day then He got into a boat and said, “Let us go over unto the other side of the lake” (Luke 8:22). He didn’t tell them why He wanted to go over there; He just said GoIt wasn’t an easy trip. They encountered hurricane force winds on the way that were so strong the disciples thought they were going to die until Jesus rebuked the storm and put a stop to it.

Do you know who they met when they arrived at the other side of that lake? A man so filled with evil spirits that no man and no chains could hold him. A man who lived in the tombs. Who thrived off of bodies and carcasses, cutting and beating himself. A man who wanted to be free but couldn’t.  When that man saw Jesus, he ran toward Him probably intending to kill Him. But when he approached Jesus, he ran into the presence of God and those demonic powers fell on the ground in subjection.  Right then and there, Jesus delivered the madman from the tombs. He drove out the demons and set him free.

Think about the extremes Jesus went to, to reach that man. Why did He do it? Why did He travel across the lake when He was so tired He fell asleep shortly after they set sail? Why did He go through the storm?  I’m convinced it’s because God heard the cry of one desperate man and said to Jesus, “Go get him. I don’t care if he has been living out of the graves. I don’t care how bound up by perversion he is. I don’t care what he looks like, smells like or acts like. I love him, so go get him and set him free.”

Burning Up With Love

Again and again throughout His ministry, Jesus went to extreme lengths to prove to us the love of God. Ultimately He even went into hell for us—a place far worse than any graveyard that wild man ever inhabited. He faced death and the grave. He gave up His union with God in order to carry the sin that Adam had brought into the world.

My friend, God loves you with an amazing love! He didn’t have you born again just so He could get you off His conscience. That may sound funny but when you think about it, many people have that mentality.  They’ve been taught by religion that God saves us just so we can praise Him forever. Just so we can live for Him. In other words, God saved us to satisfy His own egotistical, selfish need to have someone tell Him how great He is all the time.

No! God isn’t like that!  Ephesians tells us He redeemed us in order to restore our fellowship with Him so that in the ages to come He could show us the wonders of His love and grace (see Ephesians 1:7-10).

God’s heart cries out to those who are in sin, to those who have been hurt and put in bondage by it. He wants to bring them into His presence. He wants to be for them all that He is.  He knows how wonderful and marvelous He can cause our lives to be. He has a driving compassion to be with us and to bless us. The Bible says God is a fire from the loins up and a fire from the loins down. He is burning up with love!

Put Away Your Stick

Because of that fiery compassion, Colossians 1:13 tells us that “[The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love” (The Amplified Bible).  Let that sink in a moment. You and I are now native citizens of the kingdom of love! Love should be flowing out of us toward others, just like it flowed from God toward us.

The Apostle Paul said God has reconciled to Himself the whole world and given unto us that message of reconciliation (see II Corinthians 5:18-21). God has made the whole world right with Him. And since you are born of His nature and His love, it should be in you to do the same thing with those around you—to draw them close to you and to love them.

“Well, I couldn’t possibly get close to those people! They’re living in gross sin!”  Get them saved then! Don’t beat them with your judgment stick. Don’t try to punish them for their sin. Jesus already took the punishment for them. As I John 2:2 says, “He [that same Jesus Himself] is the propitiation (the atoning sacrifice) for our sins, and not for ours alone but also for [the sins of] the whole world” (The Amplified Bible).

When we’re tempted to be harsh or critical, we would do well to remember that. To think about the fact that Jesus shed His blood for that person regardless of how ugly they are acting or how wrong they are. Then we should ask ourselves, “Is this how Jesus would speak to this person? Is this the tone of voice He would use?”

When Jesus met the madman at the tombs, He didn’t criticize and berate him. He loved him. He understood that the man was bound and driven by devils. He was a person who needed help—not condemnation.  Keep that in mind when you’re dealing with someone you think is wrong. Consider him. Consider what he’s going through. If you don’t know what he is going through, then do one of two things: either find out or keep your mouth shut.  Don’t hurt his feelings in the name of being right. The presence of God is not involved in that. Love goes out of the way to see to it that people’s feelings aren’t hurt. It isn’t touchy and it doesn’t cause hurts.

A Common Deception

When you’re outside of love you’re outside of the will of God, no matter how justified you feel you are.  I John 2:9-10 puts it this way: “Whoever says he is in the Light and [yet] hates his brother…is in darkness even until now. Whoever loves his brother…abides (lives) in the Light, and in It or in him there is no occasion for stumbling or cause for error or sin” (The Amplified Bible).

Most of us would deny the fact that we hate anyone because hate is such a strong term. But the truth is, if we’re not exercising the love of God toward the people around us, we are hating them. There is no in between, only varying degrees of intensity.  Thus, when we fail to act in love, we’re in darkness. The sad thing about it is, most of the time we don’t even know it. It is, as Proverbs 14:12 says, the “…way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

You don’t wake up and think, “Well, I believe I’ll be wrong today.” No, it often comes under the guise of helping someone. For example, have you ever felt compelled to correct someone “in order to help them”? You may think, This may seem harsh, but it’s okay because they’ll be better off in the long run.  I’ve even seen people in the ministry criticize, step on or hurt those they work with in order to accomplish a certain ministry goal. It’s never all right to disregard people, no matter how just the cause. Even though you cannot keep some people from being offended, it should never occur because of your insensitivity or laziness where the love walk is concerned.

If you are not endeavoring to grow and walk in love with the people around you, you are in darkness and you are deceived. Without love, whatever you do will fall short of the glory of God. And without the glory of God in what you do, you might as well not bother to do it at all.

Choose Your World

Apart from the influence of God, the world has no love! All the “love” it has to offer is full of greed and possessiveness, interwoven with lust.  But you are no longer a citizen of darkness. You are no longer a citizen of this world. You are a citizen of the kingdom of the Son of God’s love.  Yes, you still live in this world which is under the influence of the wicked one. It’s still knocking at your door, putting pressure on you to follow its selfish pattern of living.  The question is, which world will you yield to? Will you be an ambassador of love or will you adapt to the hateful world around you?

If you choose to be an ambassador of love, you’ll have an awesome impact on the world around you. What kind of impact? The same kind that Jesus had when He walked the earth. With every deed of kindness, every gesture of compassion, every word of love, you’ll bring God’s very presence on the scene.  So stand up on the inside and say, “As of this day, I make a decision that I’m walking in love. I’ll not put myself first. I’ll put others before me. I’ll stop criticizing and start reaching out in compassion.”  Then stir up the Holy Spirit inside you by praying in the spirit. Let Him show you how to truly love. He’s so creative. He can tell you how to be loving to the people who give you the hardest time of all.

He’ll give you the power to go and do something nice for them. Do you know what will happen when you do that? They’ll probably be ugly to you again. But the power of love will enable you to rise above it and it won’t matter.  What will matter, however, is that something eternal will have happened. The very love and presence of Almighty God will have invaded that situation. And that love can do things nothing else can do. Love breaks chains. Delivers captives. Heals wounds. Brings people together.

Love makes the impossible possible. Because love never fails.  –Terri Copeland Pearsons


Make a Decision to Obey God, No Matter the Costs!

make the decision to obey god

I believe heard someone say one time being a Christian was for wimps.  They obviously were not a Christian.  It is hard to do to someone else the opposite of what they have done to you.  For the past three days, God has spoken to me about staying out of offense!   He spoke an article for me to write, an article Ken Copeland wrote (which I published so you can read it) and today He has had me put into practice the content of both of those articles!

Today, the minute my feet hit the floor here came the devil with his bag of tricks.  I didn’t feel well, got a terrible night of sleep (watch these times when you aren’t rested, that is when frustration and upset show up most), and it just kept going south from there!  I cried,  plunged into a project I just could not get right or results from, called hubby in for help, and still couldn’t get it done!  Oh, I could sense the enemy and all of his tricks and he was reaching into that bag to pull out more!  I said, “Father, what do I do??”  He said, “What I have told you the last few days to do!”  All of a sudden the story of Ken Copeland and what happened to his camera hit me!  I knew right then exactly what the right thing to do was and I did it!

Now, precious reader, I DID NOT FEEL LIKE DOING IT!  If I had done what I FELT somebody would have been told and how!!  You CANNOT go on FEELINGS!  You have to act on faith and let God do the rest!  I have felt this for several days and I am now going to do what God has spoken to me to prophecy by the power of the Spirit of God!

Someone is going through a divorce.  You are a woman!  Your soon to be ex-husband has threatened you with your children, he has lied to them and done it well because he is a deceiver!  He has threatened you with financial ruin, and has used deceptive practices you haven’t found out about yet concerning other things!  God says He is going to expose it before your court date!  In fact, what has been a huge war is going to turn into a truce because God is stepping in and exposing him!  YOU ARE GOING TO WIN AND WIN BIG!  Everything he has hidden is being brought INTO the light!!  The very gallows he has tried to build to hang you on, just like Haman, he will be hung on!  You are coming to the end of this trouble and God has  such a bright and glorious future for you and your children, you will say, “Only God could pull all this off!”  You will be a testimony to just how God will take the impossible and make it possible!  GET READY TO BE BLESSED!   STAY OUT OF OFFENSE, AND SURELY YOU ARE GOING TO SEE THE HAND OF GOD MOVE ON YOUR BEHALF IN A WAY YOU DIDN’T KNOW WAS POSSIBLE!  STAY OUT OF OFFENSE!!!  IF YOU DON’T, YOU WILL FORFEIT THE PROMISE!

That makes me want to dance all over this house!  God honors us when we honor His word!!  Don’t let the devil tell you how your day is going to go!  You tell him how it is going to go!  Let him see you go where he is forbidden and PRAISE like he can no longer do!  Let him know, every time he tries his mess, more of it is on the way!!

You are precious, my reader!  I love you and God loves you!  Remember, JESUS IS LORD and you are BLESSED!!!!  See you soon!  Juliana

Today, the minute my feet hit the floor here came the devil with his bag of tricks.  I didn’t feel well, got a terrible night of sleep (watch these times when you aren’t rested, that is when frustration and upset show up most), and it just kept going south from there!  I cried,  plunged into a project I just could not get right or results from, called hubby in for help, and still couldn’t get it done!  Oh, I could sense the enemy and all of his tricks and he was reaching into that bag to pull out more!  I said, “Father, what do I do??”  He said, “What I have told you the last few days to do!”  All of a sudden the story of Ken Copeland and what happened to his camera hit me!  I knew right then exactly what the right thing to do was and I did it!

Now, precious reader, I DID NOT FEEL LIKE DOING IT!  If I had done what I FELT somebody would have been told and how!!  You CANNOT go on FEELINGS!  You have to act on faith and let God do the rest!  I have felt this for several days and I am now going to do what God has spoken to me to prophecy by the power of the Spirit of God!

Someone is going through a divorce.  You are a woman!  Your soon to be ex-husband has threatened you with your children, he has lied to them and done it well because he is a deceiver!  He has threatened you with financial ruin, and has used deceptive practices you haven’t found out about yet concerning other things!  God says He is going to expose it before your court date!  In fact, what has been a huge war is going to turn into a truce because God is stepping in and exposing him!  YOU ARE GOING TO WIN AND WIN BIG!  Everything he has hidden is being brought INTO the light!!  The very gallows he has tried to build to hang you on, just like Haman, he will be hung on!  You are coming to the end of this trouble and God has  such a bright and glorious future for you and your children, you will say, “Only God could pull all this off!”  You will be a testimony to just how God will take the impossible and make it possible!  GET READY TO BE BLESSED!   STAY OUT OF OFFENSE, AND SURELY YOU ARE GOING TO SEE THE HAND OF GOD MOVE ON YOUR BEHALF IN A WAY YOU DIDN’T KNOW WAS POSSIBLE!  STAY OUT OF OFFENSE!!!  IF YOU DON’T, YOU WILL FORFEIT THE PROMISE!

That makes me want to dance all over this house!  God honors us when we honor His word!!  Don’t let the devil tell you how your day is going to go!  You tell him how it is going to go!  Let him see you go where he is forbidden and PRAISE like he can no longer do!  Let him know, every time he tries his mess, more of it is on the way!!

You are precious, my reader!  I love you and God loves you!  Remember, JESUS IS LORD and you are BLESSED!!!!  See you soon!  Juliana
