~ shared at Wings of Grace by Prophetess Fannette Douglas

Psalms 34:19 - Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivered him out of them all.

I was sitting at my computer meditating this morning, and I heard the words of the Lord when He spoke into my spirit and said "Tell my people to HOLD ON." So I'm taking this opportunity to speak these words into your spirit today. I may not know you by name, but rest assured that God knows your name and YOU are on His mind.

Some of you are feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, tired and weak. Some have lost their joy, peace, motivations and dreams. Some of you don't see any way out of your dilemma and you're crying “Lord how long". Or maybe you're ready to throw in the towel and give it all up.

Listen my friend...There's nothing eccentric or unusual about what you and I are experiencing right now. The bible tells us not to be surprised by the fiery troubles that are coming in order to test you. Don't feel as though something strange is happening to you. (1 Peter 4:12)

All of the hell that you are going through, is a clear indication that God is about to BLESS you. Those attack that you are under right now, those attack are demonic forces from your future. Yes that's right; Satan knows that your future is bright. So he's trying all he knows how to discourage you and stop you from getting there.

Some of the things you are experiencing right now are the final stages before breakthrough and spiritual promotion. You can always tell how blessed you’re going to be tomorrow by the hell you go through today.

SO IN THE NAME OF JESUS, I COMMAND YOUR SPIRIT TO HOLD ON. Hold on to your faith, Hold on to your joy, hold on to your peace, hold on to your dreams, hold on your marriage, hold on to your family, and hold on to what God promises you!

No matter what you are dealing with right now, remember that God is Faithful. Trust Him and HOLD ON.

Romans 8:28 and we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Beautiful One Magazine

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Beautiful One Magazine is directed to and focuses on women. Women are influential, they are strong, and they are able. They are the heartbeat of families, and they are a strong part of our world culture and Christian faith. Women are vital to the continuance and quality of human life as we know it. They are caregivers and the authors of deep love. These are just some of the reasons we work to preserve the greatness and delicacy of women today. This modern culture of women has undergone a severe makeover of the wrong kind. Women have lost themselves to media, fashion, entertainment, anger, disappointment, sexual abuse, verbal and physical abuse, divorce and depression. In having to combat these elements, we have in many cases lost our focus and direction with who we were meant to be, made to be and called to be. We exist to reverse the curse.. to uplift, motivate, encourage and bring women to places they've never before known in their own hearts and minds. To open their thinking to see their own potential. Women. God's handiwork.

It's Time to Wake Up!

Monday, January 26, 2009

This message was shared at Wings of Grace, but comes from Apostle Chiffon Foster of Kingdom Glory Ministries.

"Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah). The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the [full] armor of light" (Romans 13:11,12). "Therefore He says, Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine (make day dawn) upon you and give you light. Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people)" (Eph. 5:14, 15). "AWAKE, AWAKE, put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city; for henceforth there shall no more come into you the uncircumcised and the unclean.Shake yourself from the dust; arise, sit [erect in a dignified place], O Jerusalem; loose yourself from the bonds of your neck, O captive Daughter of Zion" (Isaiah 52: 1,2). "For you are all sons of light and sons of the day; we do not belong either to the night or to darkness. Accordingly then, let us not sleep, as the rest do, but let us keep wide awake (alert, watchful, cautious, and on our guard) and let us be sober (calm, collected, and circumspect). For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who are drunk, get drunk at night. But we belong to the day; therefore, let us be sober and put on the breastplate (corslet) of faith and love and for a helmet the hope of salvation" ( I Thes. 5: 5-8).

Are we in danger as the Bride of Christ of being lulled and seduced into a deep sleep once again? Have we as leaders become drunken and intoxicated off of prestige, fame, fortune and believing our own press? Are there those in the pew who have drifted off to sleep because of a false sense of security? God told the prophet Isaiah to cry aloud and spare not! Those that have an ear to hear have heard the sense of urgency in the Spirit to not allow the things of this world to systematically cause a sleep and slumber to overtake them.

What has caused many to take on spiritual anesthesia and as a result have become dull of hearing and spiritually blind? The enemy comes to do nothing but to steal, kill and destroy but the methods that he is using in this hour are so subtle and crafty. The tools of: false promotions, ambition, connections of the flesh, impure motives, and ignorance/arrogance have caused many to turn from pleasing an audience

I urgently admonish apostolic gatekeepers to return to your post and defend the gates! He who control the gates controls the flow of traffic (spirits coming in and out of a church, city and region). Watchmen, get back in the tower and communicate to the shepherds on the fields what you see. Intercessors stay on your face in the secret place until you break through the hostile territory in the Spirit.

Awake God's holy apostles and prophets and take your place in this hour to bring forth God's agenda, heart and order to the House of God. Do not be afraid of being apart of the remnant of those that have been assigned to this hour. Zion, shake yourself free from every dumb and deaf spirit and arise from your rest and STORM THE GATES!

If I can endure for this minute
Whatever is happening to me,
No matter how heavy my heart is
Or how dark the moment may be

If I can remain calm and quiet
With all the world crashing about me,
Secure in the knowledge God loves me
When everyone else seems to doubt me

If I can but keep on believing
What I know in my heart to be true,
That darkness will fade with the morning
And that this will pass away, too-

Then nothing in life can defeat me
For as long as this knowledge remains
I can suffer whatever is happening
For I know God will break all of the chains

That are binding me tight in the darkness
And trying to fill me with fear
For there is no night without dawning
And I know that my morning is near.

Empty Me of Me

Friday, January 16, 2009

Saturdays used to be known as "bath day", many years ago. It's hard to believe that today, as most people shower every morning.

In the same fashion, we need God to cleanse us every so often too. He washes us with the water of His Word. Not only do we get 'dirty' just by living but, we are full of 'holes', the scriptures tell us. And these 'holes', leak his fillings.

So,not only does everyone need a Savior to save them and take them to heaven but, they need this Savior also to cleanse them of the filth of daily living and to empower them to live as a believer. Without Him, washing,cleansing and filling us,we begin to stink to this lost and dying world and we will offer nothing to quench their spiritual thirst.

It is possible to stink and not be a 'sweet smelling savor'.

Have you "FRESHENED UP" lately?

Watch this video and then ask yourself the following questions:

Do you KNOW who He is?

Are you making TIME to get to KNOW Him?

Are the SCRIPTURES becoming ALIVE in your life?


Are you BECOMING more like Jesus?

Visit Susan's blog ~ Deny Yourself Daily

"Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for on these things I delight." ~ Jeremiah 9:23-24

Come Closer...

Wednesday, January 07, 2009

The New School of the Spirit

Regardless of who you are or what you've done wrong in your life, God is still calling out to you today. And, deep within yourself, you can feel Him beckoning you to come closer...

Closer so He can wash away your shame. Closer so He can restore you to wholeness and ease your inner pains.

That's what a true relationship with God does. It's not about rules and regulations, but total life transformation.

And that's what God has in store for those who truly seek Him - An abiding relationship with Him that changes you from the inside out. A deep connection that overflows into every area of your life.

A relationship that causes you to live victoriously above life's obstacles... instead of just struggling "under" your circumstances day after day.

But, you don't have to work to build that relationship all on your own.

The New School of the Spirit is a Christian online community that is available to help you! Be sure to check it out!
