Who do You say I AM? -Yeshua

Matthew 16:13-17

Greetings All,

As I was reflecting on the ministry of our Messiah Yeshua/Jesus and his crucifixion.. I stumbled upon a podcast about a major character in the story, Judas Iscariot. I couldn’t shake the perspective and new revelation spoken by the author and minister. But it led me to write upon the revelation he received because I too received a revelation from his revelation. Ha.. 😅I love when the Holy Spirit does that.

So, let’s dig in.

Being that today is the Saturday before the National recognition of Yeshua’s resurrection, I only saw that this message was right on time to share.

In the podcast, which is provided below for your own itching ears.. the author states that Judas never called Jesus..Lord, Messiah, Savior, or any of those intimate endearments.. but rather Rabbi/Teacher.

It never occurred to me how key that was and the significance of that. But, after pondering, I realized who someone is to you plays a role on HOW we see them and their meaning in our lives. (I let you marinate on that for a moment)🤔🤔

The other disciples who also walked closely with Yeshua in his ministry related to Him on a deeper intimate level than Judas did.. which I believe was why it was easier for Judas to betray His own Savior. The other disciples didn’t know in depth everything.. but it seems they had been open enough to catch the revelation that Yeshua was there son of God and Messiah and that his ministry was real and that he wasn’t some anti Rabbi without a fake ministry.

So this is a good segue to the Below scripture in Matthew 16:13-17

13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”

14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist;(B)others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”(C)

15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”

16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”(D)

17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood,(E) but by my Father in heaven.(F

I believe it’s important to know who Yeshua is to us as the believer. We know who people say He is. But if we have truly given our lives to him and have truly been transformed where the spirit of God dwells within us and we truly feel convicted within ourselves when we fall short of his glory.. then Truly Yeshua should mean more to us than just a Teacher.. or just a man who has some good messages to share and just a man who lives 2000+years ago and is a major controversy to the world whom many religions dispute about and theologians have deep discussions and theories about.

Sooo I’ll go first..

Yeshua says: and what about you..Elouise, Who do you say I am?

Well Yeshua, you know you already know my thoughts and everything I do before I even utter any words. But since you asked..

Yeshua, you are my redeemer, my savior, and my friend. As a child when I used to write in my journal and talk to God, you showed me that you were always around and you gave me a ray of light to hold onto and be reminded that my days of struggle were temporary. You still continue to do so. You’re the truest friend and as of recently you’ve shown me How true Love is supposed to look like and that if it isn’t sacrificial like the way you portrayed and displayed the love you have for all humanity and Me.. then it isn’t true Love.

Abba Papa, you are my forever Father in heaven. You also reminded me that even though my earthly father won’t ever be by my side in this realm of life.. you are always just a whisper, a call a tear away. On my very saddest days, you show me that you really are near and that I’m your dearest precious child and though I’m an adult pushing thirty.. I am your forever child and can climb into your lap whenever my heart is filled with sorrow or my feelings are hurt or when I just miss my daddy or when I just want to spend some quality time with you.. which should be a daily thing.. I’m working on it (😉)

And last.. but just as significant, Yeshua says: Who do you say I am?

Holy Spirit, Ruach Ha Kodesh, you keep me on my toes and keep me aligned. You offer prayers on my behalf when I’m lost for words or drowning in my tears that I can’t even quite put them into words. You are my translator and the one who makes my transformation in Yeshua real and you make my relationship complete and tangible. Without you, my adventure with Christ would be surface level and would lack those deep intimate levels and my questions would be vague. Without you.. I wouldn’t be able to speak the same language to Abba for he only understands the spirit. You complete the relationship. Well really without Yeshua, I wouldn’t even have you.. so he’s most important.

Sooo, you see.. How we view Yeshua and the Trinity is extremely important and I urge you dear brothers and sisters to take some time to really reflect on your life and the places where You’ve seen God and Yeshua and Holy Spirit and to see who he is to you.. but who your mother or your father or pastor has said he is.. but based off your life and since your conversion.. who He truly is to you. That is why this faith is a Personal journey. This is what makes Christianity stand out from the rest.. it’s that intimacy and the choice to See Yeshua as more than just a teacher.

O When the Saints Go Marching IN…All the Way IN

Hello there,

Well that sounded a bit funny.. I suppose it would for me.. being that I haven’t written to you all in ages. Pardon me for that. My life has been quite the rollercoaster and I should have been sharing it so others can see the mighty hand of God through it all.. Ha. Better late than never..

Well.. it’s March 2021 in case anyone has been sleeping through this year and didn’t know..

This month is quite significant.. I mean this year is for most of us Saints/believers. When I hear the word March… I see believers/saints MARCHING into their Victory, their promise land, their breakthrough, Their New Thing, their IN; whatever IN looks like to them. This is a month to GO ALL IN.. specifically to MARCH.

Sooo prophetically I want to challenge MYSELF especially AND you all to MARCH into Your IN.

For me.. this looks like Declaring, Praising and Marching in my apartment with my bunny babes staring at me wondering what in the world their bun mom is doing, and me just speaking purposefully, prophetically and without a care in the world who is tuning in and Entering IN to all that God has spoken over me, shown me and even things Eyes have not seen out wars have not heard. 1Corinthians 2:9

Biblically, there were many acts that God’s servants did prophetically to cover a certain message to the body of Christ(God) at the time.

Examples are: when the prophet Jeremiah went smashing jars before an audience or Ezekiel baking bread over human waste (yes, poop). There’s also Isaiah who walked around naked for three years. And we can’t forget that one time when God told Hosea to marry a harlot.

Sooo as God’s servant, I feel the unction to share with you a less abnormal/unconventional prophetic act of you Marching into your Victory. However it looks for you to March, do so for the whole month of March.

Spiritually, you’ll be marching right INto Your tailor made appointed Promises. You’ll be marching right on top of the Devil’s head and over any schemes and plans he had in progress, you’ll be marching over doubt, unbelief, old disappointments, old mindsets, etc.

Sooo Saints, put on your Marching boots, your best outfit (my Dance garment) and March On IN through this month.

SN: don’t forget to put on your full armor. Though it is a March into victory, you will be a moving target. Ephesians 6.

Lastly, Pursue is what I heard. So, Ready Set, MARCH IN Saints.. AND Pursue!

Turn Left, Make a U-turn Rerouting,Rerouting

Thank God for the invention of the GPS, righhhht…

Now, I know I’m not that old.. Proud to be a ’90s babe..I still can recall the time when we had to MapQuest everything. Boy, did I think MapQuest was unreliable. I remember the differential not always being correct.. Even worse, was the fact that Google hadn’t updated certain streets or removed roads that were no longer in route. So when you printed out the directions for destinations.. You would have to find out the hard way, that the street is gone. Ha.. Those were the days.

I know, I’m not that old.. But the GPS is fairly new and has most definitely changed driving and life as we know it.. For the better.

Well, now we have this..trusty(as much as a computer can get, anyway) mechanical device that we know and love to help us navigate, guide and teach us new routes. We trust it so much that, we usually do not begin driving toward an unfamiliar place until we have programmed our destination. Most of us probably do not know how to read physical maps at all, and would be like a deer in headlights if we even looked at one.

Well.. In the life of a believer.. There is one GPS that is far better than any computer or mechanical device that will ever be created.

However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL TRUTH …” (JOHN 16:13)

That my friends, is the Holy Spirit.

But you can’t just go pick the HS off a rack in the store.. Or borrow it from a friend or family. The Holy Spirit actually comes with the best package deal you’ll ever receive in your life.

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, HE WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS, and bring to your remembrance all things that I have said to you.” (John 14:26)

He comes 3in1! When you accept Jesus, you automatically get connected with Father God… Because he is one in the same as Jesus. Then.. Because you have those two, all you do is ask and believe.. No purchase needed.. and you get..The HS.. Holy Spirit!

Identification, please

John 1:12 ~”Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.

A few weeks ago I lost my license and I had looked every where in my car for it and in my place of residence.. to not prevail was it found. I took the necessary measures to obtain a replacement, but it affected me quite emotionally. I had then realized without my license I had no other form of identification. I wasn’t even registered in that state that I currently reside in which was another issue. I began thinking of how if I had gotten stopped by the police, how either two things would happen.. that I’d go to jail for not abiding by the law in carrying identification while driving a motor vehicle, or that the mercy of God, coupled with the favor upon my life and grace I do not deserve would allow the officer to give me a warning let me be on my merry way. I had become so consumed with the time frame it would take for my previous state of residence to send my replacement and the fact that I was unsure what address they’d send it to. In all this I did ask Abba father to place his protection over me and to guard me from being stopped. Every time I drove past a police car, I had my guard up higher, I slowed my speed and I removed my distractions so I wouldn’t be an easy target to follow. I also, started to doubt if my license would even come because on the dmv website it stated that my request was denied. I had called the dmv and inquired why that may have been so and the receptionist stated that my postal address may not match and so therefore it would be returned to the post office. I then began to panic a bit inside because, you see.. our license serves as our access of identification to do many things. I remember wanting to send a simple money gram at Walmart and the sign and the woman at the counter stated that I needed identification. Even a photo copy in which I’d all I had in my possession was not acceptable. It had then dawned on me how much we need our license for and all it serves a purpose for. It reminded me about the access we have in the kingdom of God. Jesus in our heart as our Lord and personal savior was our identification into the kingdom. He is our license to shut even the mouth of satan and to put the devil in His place.. And every other child of God who is Our brother or sister can see our identification by our fruits or actions. It’s a license that is visible through our demeanor and speech. When we go to certain realms of the spirit our ID in Christ gives us access and even the enemy can recognize whom we belong to. Our ID gives us the power to even obtain the blessings God has stored up for us. Access granted. And get this.. your license has to be a Valid one. What makes it Valid? The fact that a believer is Actively and Intentionally walking with Jesus. Meaning they use their ID for kingdom business.. they don’t just have their license and are idle. When a person has a driver’s license they use it for many things.. driving, to buy restricted items, for information to be documented on them, etc. it’s the same in the kingdom of God. Your Identification in Christ shows you Belong to Him.. it shows that Heaven is your place of residence even if you are walking in the earth realm. The difference between the early license and the heavenly license is that, once you obtain the heavenly license through Jesus Christ, you can’t get it suspended, revoked, or lost. Once you have it, your only obligation is to Use it and to Use it well. Knowing this assures me that my Identification in Christ holds a lifetime and eternal value. I never have to worry about it going missing. Thank you Jesus for my Forever Identification. Thank you that even when Satan comes into my path, I can stand proudly and confidently and speak your name and he will flee knowing that I belong to Thee.

I did finally receive my replacement license and It felt good to be able to have my earthly form of ID as well, tho it could never compare to my heavenly one.

The Cure

I want to address how many of us christians.. Especially the older generation have turned away from what it means to go and seek the lost and what it means to make Disciples. Yes, I am included in this because the Holy Spirit had brought to my attention and hi-lighted a few of my thoughts. The Lord is indeed forever transforming and renewing my thinking daily, when I allow him to.

I desire to share The Cure to as many young people that cross my path. I believe that infectious, demonic diseases, plagued mindsets and bondages have captured a lot of young people today as well as older. I personally, at a few points in my life had been attacked and if it were not for the Powerful Blood transfusion of Jesus and the mature fed prayer warriors that Abba placed in my path and in my life, I would still be fighting those demonic diseases today.

Let’s be honest though, it is a whole lot easier to captivate the mind of a youth who is open to everything than a “set in thy way, traditional believing adult”, wouldn’t you agree?.

That is why the devil goes after the youth. He has an agenda set and he is sticking to it because he “Thinks” it’s working. But, believe me when I say the Power of God is in Effect, even if we don’t always see the Affects.

So let’s add some scripture to the mix, to help you get a better understanding of what is spiritually going on today.

2 Timothy 3:2-7 TPT
“People will be self-centered lovers of themselves and obsessed with money. They will boast of great things as they strut around in their arrogant pride and mock all that is right. They will ignore their own families. They will be ungrateful and ungodly. They will become addicted to hateful and malicious slander. Slaves to their desires, they will be ferocious, belligerent haters of what is good and right. With brutal treachery, they will act without restraint, bigoted and wrapped in clouds of their conceit. They will find their delight in the pleasures of this world more than the pleasures of the loving God. They may pretend to have a respect for God, but in reality they want nothing to do with God’s power.”

So this passage, written by Timothy thoroughly explains what we see today in our world. This is clearly how we know the Bible is truth. It states here in plain text. This is a result of the “Fall of Man”.

But, there is a Cure. All is not Lost for these people. But it would take an intentional posture of surrendering and acceptance of the blindness and wrongdoing in the sight of the Lord.

While this is going on.. See it’s like a constant battle..God is still in the background raising up his children in his glorious power.. In a way.. It’s like ranking up.

Acts 2:17-21 ER
Referenced from:

Joel 2:28-32

‘God says: In the last days I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions. Your old men will have special dreams. In those days I will pour out my Spirit on my servants, men and women, and they will prophesy. I will work wonders in the sky above. I will cause miraculous signs on the earth below. There will be blood, fire, and thick smoke. The sun will be changed into darkness, and the moon will be as red as blood. Then the great and glorious day of the Lord will come. And everyone who trusts

in the Lord will be saved.’

Even tho God is in the background doing his thing, we who are Holy Spirit filled need to gear up, put our confidence in Yeshua and get out there and relentlessly spread The Cure. The devil is busy and he is not retracting in his position. He has a set agenda and will stop at nothing at achieve it.

I do not say all this to boast (truthfully, I’m struggling to be bold enough) in triumph of sharing The Cure, but rather in realizing that I and other believers have The greatest anecdote to people’s sufferings, people’s lost paths,etc, so we need to be deligent and do this service unto our Lord who rescued us.

{The Conviction}:

Why are We as a body, sitting on The Cure to set people free?! Why are we not in a sense of urgency? Have we no compassion for the Lost? Did we forget how desperately we needed A cure at one point of time. Have we forgotten how we still must Apply The Cure daily?! Why have we laxed?! Why have we as a body become so distracted by the Events in church? Jesus is like, Our daily ointment. We go through life events daily, we get bruised, scarred and hit on all sides.. Jesus, our ointment is what prepares us for the daily attacks we will face. In the word of God, ointments were used cosmetically (Ruth being prepared for the King), funerals/burial( the woman who broke the alabaster jar filled with expensive fragrance over Jesus’s feet, in preparation for his death), for medicinal purposes and rituals.

{Action}:

Let’s get back to our original command..To go out and make Disciples. However you flow, in whatever gifting.. Apply your ointment, Apply The Cure and Share The Cure to this sickly and dying world,I guarantee in your presentation, someone will be desperate enough to grab ahold of it and Never..Let…Go.
Matthew 28:19-20 New International Version (NIV)

19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

The Final Impression: Crowning

Note: This is the final process of the Uprooting. To get the full message refer back to that previous post.

After weeks of wearing my temporary crown that had felt quite nice in the spot of the previously infected tooth, the day had finally arrived for my permanent crown.

The weeks in advance, I had been speaking about it, thinking about it, being concerned about how it would feel and whatnot. I did what I needed to do to maintain the temporary one. That consisted of flossing around it, not eating tough foods on it, brushing it and so forth.

As I awakened that morning from my sweet slumber, wishing a bit that I could turn over and get more, an excitement hit my heart and songs of praise began to pour out of my lips. The night before I had spoken with my best friend about how I felt that I was getting Coronated and that the crowning felt like a ceremony.

So in gathering my belongings, I headed for my secret ceremony. To many, this will not seem significant, but for me, it’s everything. Especially since these are mainly ways Lord speaks to me. It is a representation of how God will crown me in my faithfulness and obedience.

I sat in the dental office, waiting patiently for the procedure to begin. The dental Hygienist came in and proceeded to remove the temporary crown, which struggled to release itself from my gums. I mean that thing was snug and nestled! (Catch this) Sometimes the temporary things in life will want to stay in place because of its comfortability. So then you must apply that pressure to push it out so the permanent can replace it.

After removing the temporary crown, my Dentist, who in this case will represent The Almighty who is fit for the job, entered the scene to perform the Final Crowning. The dental hygienist will represent the angels that go before God to administer any task they are commanded to.

Even in the placing of the 👑, she had to once again apply pressure and shave a bit of it down so that it fit in perfectly with the rest of my teeth. Just as the temporary crown had done.

In my mind, I had entered the throne room of God, was seated in the center of the room, awaiting one of the many crowns he had promised me.

How honored and grateful I felt in his presence.

After the procedure, I had the biggest grin on my face, walked out and went home to get ready for work.

I remember anticipating pain and programming in my mind that if there was the slightest bit of pain, I would not go to work. Well, Abba made sure the Crowning was painless and memorable in a good way.

In life, there are many processes we will undergo, but we must remember, Abba is with us every step of the way and we must Endure the Testing and the Pressure and he will make it worthwhile. The beautiful part is, we will See it.

👑Revelation 2:10👑

The Robe of Righteousness

For the past few weeks, my pet bunny rabbit has been shedding profusely. It actually has grown to be a nuisance actually. I had even researched if it was normal for him to shed that much. All websites I was led to spoke of the change in seasons and how that played a significant role in his “New Coat”of fur. I’m always observing my bunny, making sure I’m doing everything right, I’m always praying over him and anointing him (silly, maybe, or is it not?)

It only dawned on me that, Caramel, my bunny is an example that the Lord uses often to teach me. It’s so profound that the Lord uses him in my dreams to make sense of certain concepts, seasons or even situations for my comprehension.

So, I would like to present the concept of “The Robe of Righteousness” to you in the way the Almighty gave me.

So, Caramel, and most rabbits shed their fur through out the year, precisely every Three months. Then he’ll have a heavy molting season where he sheds most of his winter coat. There are a few conditions that affect the rate at which he sheds. There are also a few things that can aid the process. But towards the ending of winter, his winter coat will fully be grown and will no longer be needed for protection. Though, Caramel is a domesticated bunny, his biological process does not seize just because of his environment.(that will preach for itself, if you let it)

As I reread a familiar scripture in 2 Corinthians, you know the one about becoming a new creature in Christ, The Holy Spirit, who is remarkable at his job of interpreting scripture recalled to me Caramel’s molting process and how relative it is to the removal of our old nature when we come into our Christship.

II Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

With Caramel’s molting process, I could see how it started from his head and face then made its way to the back towards his bottom and tail. He isn’t completely finished shedding his old coat, but he’s pretty close.

One of the ways in helping his process go smoothly is taking a bristled brush and grooming him. Another way is wetting the brush a little and then brushing back, removing any excess fur that comes off of him.

One way that can prolong his process is the temperature in his living environment. What is really warm and comfortable for me, may be uncomfortable for him. So I compromise for the sake of him.

The concept of “The Robe of Righteousness” is understood to be when symbolically we come to Christ and allow God to remove our Old man(the Old Adam,The Sinful being) only then can God put his “Robe of Righteousness” (The New Coat,the New Man, Jesus{The Redeemer}, on us. Not only does he change our heart, he gives us a new heart through Christ Jesus. Even if we tried to put our old coat on, we will find, that we outgrew it, it can no longer serve as it once did for us.

There is a second part to maintaining the “New Coat“. Though, we have “Become New“…. There is something we must do to continue to have a changed mindset and heart in Christ…

Do not be conformed to this world, but continuously be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you may be able to determine what God’s will is—what is proper, pleasing, and perfect Romans 12:2

The periodical process of Caramel’s shedding is equivalent to the continual process of renewing our minds. In order to continue to remain a “New Creature” we must continue to engage in the “Shedding/Molting” process.

For Caramel, it’s a process that cannot be avoided, for us, if we allow God to continue the good/Christ work in us, then we too will grow accustomed to the Shedding stages. That is the only way we can keep “The Robe of Righteousness“on. Now, In perspective, we are called Righteous by God because of Jesus who lives on the inside of us. But, we still have to choose to Live and Walk In “Right Standing“. (Mini teaching lesson)

On the outside, Caramel looks the same, But I know each time he sheds his old coat, his new one becomes fit for his environment and living conditions. He’s gone through this process ever since he’s been in my life, I really just never paid attention to it. That’s the beauty of the Revelation of this process at this moment of my life. Just as I overlooked my dear Caramel’s process, people will not notice at first, how you’ve become a “New Creature” in Christ, but, the more you “Renew your mind, Shed and Molt the “Old You” Christ will become your identity and He will begin to shine all over you. People will look at you and say things about you that you look different or seem different. It will be like a Gloss, or like you have gotten a “New Coat” and that is when you’ll really see that the “Old has passed away“.

So I urge you, if you want a new coat and would like to try the lifetime “Coat of Righteousness” on for size, it’s as simple as going to the Designer himself and He will get you Fitted. There are no strings attached except for the ones that he knit you with in His Love. And if you already have the “Coat of Righteousness” don’t set it down, it’ll be the talk of the town and the Designer will get much Praise, so wear it proudly and let its work speak for itself.

The Concept of True Satisfaction

How many of us eat a meal and then… Thirty, maybe an hour or two later, are hungry again? How many times have we as human beings tried to satisfy a fleshy (meaning a bodily need or desire) with something and then find ourselves unsatisfied?? Perhaps, you’ve wondered why that feeling of unsatisfaction is even still there after you’ve done what you felt was needed to fulfill the need or desire.

Can I tell you that, our earthly desires and needs are only temporary. What if I told you that you’ll always be in Need of; because that desire to be satisfied can only be filled with that which created it. Yahweh,God,Yeshua, Jesus, his spirit (Holy Spirit) Period.

Trust me, I personally have tried to fill a few of my own desires… Such as the one to be accepted, the one to loved, the one to be content, the one to be held and adored, with temporary earthly solutions…. And….. Afterwards those needs would still be there.

(Disclaimer: I do not claim to have fully grasped the Concept of Satisfaction in God, He’s still most definitely working that in me.)

I’m pretty sure you all have needs and wants that you have attempted to fill and your mind has psyched you into thinking that it’s been fulfilled.. But then some time later, the need is bombarding your heart again. Yup, we all go through that, because we are All wired the same. In terms of the desire to Need and Want…God is the Ultimate answer.

Let’s take a look at Ecclesiastes 1:2. King Solomon wrote this letter

“Meaningless, Meaningless says the Teacher.

Utterly Meaningless!
Everything is Meaningless.”

Now, reading this head on without further reading of the chapter, would make you wonder why The wealthiest and Wisest man in biblical history made this proclamation. (So I solemnly advise you to read on in your own time)

What this verse in plain terms means is that, everything in life is Temporary and that Everything does Not last or have Any Enduring meaning.

Meaningless in Hebrew is Hebel which literally means Vapor, breath.

Soo that means everything we have, acquired or will get will vanish one day. Our very lives is as a vapor, here today, gone in a second or tomorrow.

Poof💨 like the wind

Now, Solomon was not trying to put a damper on pleasurable things or rain on anyone’s parade. Some people actually enjoy their life with all the things they’ve accomplished and acquired. What Solomon was conveying is that, Everything in this earthly life… Is Temporary. So we Must Not get caught up in Satisfying our earthly vessels.

We do so in so many ways too… We hunger food so we eat (in attempt to satisfy the need to Eat). We crave attention, everyone does, whether you acknowledge it or not… So we do little things in our own way to be noticed. We desire a new car, a new house, A new this or that…. And all that is fine… We just have to remember that we Cannot Expect earthly things To be Eternal. We would be setting ourselves up for spiritual depression.

We have to get an understanding in our minds, that when God gives us gifts on this Earth, or blesses us… That is part of his promise for us to have an Abundant Life. But they are only meant to be enjoyed here, in this temporary land of living. So we must comprehend that when those gifts leave, that it is alright because the giver was so gracious and loving to bestow them on us anyway. When he wants it back, for what ever reason.. We have to be okay with letting it go.

Our satisfaction is supposed to be Found in the Giver, Not the Given.

When we grasp this, we can enjoy life the way God intended, knowing that we’ll always be satisfied in all areas.

(Suggestion: I advise reading the whole book of Psalms, King David, Solomon’s father developed a keen understanding of True Satisfaction in the Lord.)

The power of Uprooting

I was at the dental office a week ago and I was having a procedure done. The oral surgeon mentioned that I needed to take immediate action to save a tooth that had been infected. She stated that the procedure was called A root canal.

She explained to me the process in which she would go into the root of the tooth, located under the gum and then she’d use a special tool to remove the damaged or infected nerve. Then she’d clean the root area and seal it and then crown the tooth to protect it from any future damage.

Okay, Soo does this process sound familiar, toooo, maybe salvation… Or healing of any sort, or perhaps Deliverance?

You may be wondering… Why is uprooting important?

Ecclesiastes 3:2 Well let’s take a plant for instance. Some plants are planted only for a season and at the end of it, they lose fruit and it’s obvious that they should be uprooted and discarded. Then there are other plants in which, they became diseased and infected, or they were disfigured and didn’t grow properly. An uprooting is needed to take place.

As I sat there in the chair of my surgeon with my mouth pried open by a dental device in which I know not the name of, I could feel different objects being inserted; from a painful needle to numb the area, to a drill to shave the tooth down, to a measuring tool to determine the removal of the nerve, to the suction and magnetostrictive ultrasonic scaler (the water squirting tool). Of course there were a number of other tools used that I’m not familiar with. There were also various smells and a whole lot of pressure.

Let’s talk about that for a moment.

Pressure… Anytime there is a process.. Any type of process, pressure exists.

My oral surgeon warned me that I’d feel a bit of pressure and that I should resist as she worked.

That is powerful to me, because while she pulled one way..I was too tug another.. Not in a vigorous way, but just slight and gentle in the opposite direction.

I noticed this root canal procedure took hours.., not that I had any where to be, but just taking in the whole experience, I hadn’t taken into account that this was a timely event. Nonetheless, it was one that needed to get taken care of immediately.

So back to why Uprooting is important with our spiritual lives.

Infection and disease… Not in the medical illness form.. Plague our souls, spirits and even our bodies. The same way that a tooth gets injected and needs immediate attention… So is the case with our spirit. When left untreated or unattended, it either spreads to other healthy areas or come out of us.

The image I get when I see an infected soul or spirit… Is when someone has a small black or red stain on their heart. Then because they see it as minor, they neglect it and then it becomes painful… But by then they are unsure what the pain is because it has spread and taken over and now their mind ( their center of action) is in danger. Now when they speak and are around people, the pain pours out in their speech and in their actions towards certain people…

Do you see it? Do you see the imagery?

Well, that is most of us. Many of us including myself have some unhealthy habits and or mindsets that need immediate attention in which an uprooting must take place. We need to undergo a spiritual and mental Root Canal treatment.

As I reflect on this year and with expectation, looking forward to the next, I keep hearing the Lord saying,Uproot (Close the door), Cleanse, and Repair (Restore).

This is not a procedure we can do on our own. I repeat, We are Not the Spiritual Surgeons. Jehovah is. He has his own special tools he uses to remove pain, habits, mindsets, sin. That being stated, will you join me in uprooting any sin, any negative mindsets and negative habits that will only cause deeper damage to our beautiful spirits and souls? Warning, there will be pressure and discomfort.

While this year is still in our favor, it would do more Justice to close it out with old habits behind us and with newness And results of restoration ahead.

Personally, I know my Abba has good things for me and he’s waiting on me to fully uproot certain mindsets, so he can fully repair and Crown 👑 me with newness. Since he is an O so good Father, I know he has the best for you as well and also wants to Crown 👑 you in Glory.

Uprooting is quite simple. Since all sin (also known as infections and diseases of the spirit made by our soul) is stemmed from pride… We must get rid of the decay of pride and to crown ourselves in humility. According to the below scripture, we also mustn’t forget that unhealthy habits, sin, wrong mindsets are like weight.

Hebrews 12:1 says that As for us, we have all of these great witnesses who encircle us like clouds. So we must let go of every wound that has pierced us and the sin we so easily fall into. Then we will be able to run life’s marathon race with passion and determination, for the path has been already marked out before us.-Passion Translation

Prayer: Abba(Father) in heaven, I know that you are for me and Not against me. I need your help Papa. I come boldly before you at your throne of Grace, sincerely and humbly that you help me lay aside every unhealthy mindset and attitude, uproot every weight of sin, and bad habit. Lord, I don’t want to be like this, I want every decay and infection in my heart to be cut at the root and thrown out. I want to be cleansed, filled with you, all of you, all things good like you and crowned with restoration. I don’t want to go backwards,I don’t want to keep getting infected, I don’t want any of it. I just want to run this race and know that I’m Victorious because my Lord stands for Victory. I am asking you to remove all the decay and disease, all the stains and pain, please. This day as I close this prayer, I permanently drop all the unnecessary weight, I permanently give you the surgery tools and I walk away crowned,renwened and protected by your Glorious hand, in Jesus name, Amen.

The Fine tuning

I just want to start out by saying, Thank you Abba for this season of my life. Do I like it, not necessarily. Do I enjoy some days, yes. Do I cry in others, yes. Buttt, I’m learning that this is Your will.

There is so much I would love to write for all to read, but I must always use wisdom in my transparency.

This year did not start out the way I had imagined or hoped for. I started off with this year fighting to find the missing piece of me that I had given freely in the last season on my last voyage.

I learned so much about who God was to me and who he was in general. He showed me a few things about myself that had been hidden and not fully examined that needed to be uprooted. At this point I had become desperate for God to do an internal deep cleansing and detox.

So when this year started…I recalled a word that was given to me.. About Fine Tuning and Grooming.

Though, It was not my Father’s wish for me to cry most of my days starting out, or to stay in bed unmoved and wallow in the results of my mistakes (which will come in a later blog piece),It allowed me to grow closer to him.

And God, being as good as he is, will always turn your sorrow into joy.. Will always use what the Devil meant for evil and what he meant to destroy you with.. To Make you even more into the masterpiece you were created to be.

As I sit here typing,I can’t even tell you how I climbed out of the depression that tried to wrap it’s grimy hands around my neck and choke me. I can’t tell you that I had the will power to be where I am today and have most of the prayers I prayed the beginning of this year actually answered. I can’t tell you that I had anything to do with the Love God has made sure to show me this very year alone and as well as this season.

All I can say is.. It’s by His Grace. He has so much in store for me and in order to get to them, pain, stretching, and Tuning..Fine..Tuning must be endured.

I can’t say that I haven’t progressed or grown since January or even since I got off The beautiful Constellation Boat. I can’t help but praise and thank him for it all… If it were not for my brokenness and my mess ups ,I wouldn’t have grown to another level of relationship with him.

This year alone, he has graced me to be able to be financially stable.. Something I’ve dreamed of for years.. And even with that, he has more to come within my businesses..

He has graced me to afford my own apartment that I’m not paying with Student College Refund..

Gloryyyy be to God. C’mon somebody.. You all know what I’m talking about.

And last but certainly not least..My Abba Father has graced me with a “Paid in Cash”car that I most definitely had favor and was graced for. The story of how far I drove to get it and the discipline to lean on His understanding and not my own just to be blessed in that way, alone would blow your mind…

Honestly every time I look at Glory(my golden Honda Accord) I marvel in Awe at my King, who blessed his daughter,lil ole me with her first car at 27 years of age.

I’m still blown.

I’m really learning that nothing I have is because of Me. But it is all in spite of Me. Because God just loves me unconditionally and chooses to display His infinite Glory!

So as I Grow through this season of my life.. There may be times I’m quiet or seem to not be around, and then they’ll be times I have much to say and you’ll see me… But Don’t sleep on me.. I myself may have been sleeping.. But like sleeping Beauty, only a touch.. The right touch awakened This Beauty.

I’m being Fine Tuned and when all is done and the season of that is over, we will hear the most confident beautiful sound we’ve both ever heard. And all in favor of God said, Amen.🎶🎤🎼🎹
