10.14.15 – What Love Is – Soundtrack ;)

Every bible study it seems as if God has set some sort of soundtrack that reflects what we’ve been studying.  One session I wrote the songs that had came up in the book on whatever days they popped up.

These past couple of weeks seem to reflect some of the songs from Kari Jobe’s album, ‘Where I find You.’

Here’s two songs from the album..

 

 And a personal favorite I listen to quite often..

Often times it’s not exactly Christian music that I happen to find. This particular one stuck very strongly because I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that He knew that I needed this particular song when I wasn’t feeling particularly strong and had been buffeted by winds of emotion that tried to shake me off my foundation.

It’s sung by Princess Ai Tai(Ling) & A-Lin both major singers in Taiwan and China.. I’m posting lyrics because Hangul is my strong point not Mandarin. XD But once you hear the music and read the translated lyrics you can understand why I hearts the song. =)

Song title: 我不離開
Song title Pinyin: Wo Bu Li Kai
Song title Meaning: I’m Not Leaving / I Won’t Leave
作詞:黃婷
作曲:Skot Suyama 陶山
Singers: A-Lin / Huang Li Ling (黃麗玲) and Dai Ai Ling (戴愛玲)

Day 4: Children of God – What Love Is – Kelly Minter

There has been ONE THING that has been my struggle and my want.  A want for understanding, a want to be… what it truly is to be pure and holy.  I don’t even know if I can fully explain it.

To be pure and holy before Him is something that is a want and a struggle.  A struggle because I often find myself alone in this, and very often hard to do.  It’s a battle of the heart and mind to grasp and embrace in a society where almost anything goes.   Reality shows where nudity is the constant, gossiping and backstabbing is rewarded.  Being married at first meet.

Sexuality is often questioned and debated.  Family is being redefined by society and the world.  So being a person who desires the Word, to be a Berean, has been very difficult even among other Christians, because even among other Christians there is a search for romantic relationships.

Where am I going with this?  This week 3 of the bible study with Kelly Minter has been truly illuminating because I sensed Him revealing and bringing illumination to much that I have been struggling with…

Day 4, Kelly writes about being a Child of God and the differences from 1 John 3.3-10, about being a believer without sin.  Sin, the one thing that has become abhorrent to me.  The one thing that would separate me from Him, and yet it’s prevalent in many forms and ways.

We all struggle with a secret sin or two.  Something that we would probably go to our grave wanting to hide, and yet we know that there is no hiding anything from Him.

But when you have a heart that cries out for Him and to be constantly in His Presence, purity and holiness becomes something you utterly want to be even though you know He loves you completely no matter what.

So in my finite mind, I struggle and I read this from the entry..

“A life of righteousness, free of the dominant power of sin, is directly, inextricably connected to our relationship with God.  We come to this text and try to figure out how much sin is too much sin.  Then we try to fix things in our own flesh.  But our not sinning is not about how much harder we try.  It’s about our relationship with our Father and His Son.

When we consider His lavish love, His Word planted in our heart by the Father, we will begin to rely on the power of Jesus to destroy the Devil’s work.  When we fall back on Jesus to take away our sins–all of them– realizing that we are not just someone the Lord tolerates, someone He let slip in, but that Jesus actually chose us, the maybe we will realize what John is saying really is possible: We can be free of sin.”pg. 89 Kelly Minter, ‘What Love is’

This literally rends me to pieces.  Every time.

Kari Jobe’s One Desire has been the reverberating piece that echoed through me today as I have studied His Word that reflects this entry.   I could say more but I don’t have it in me to do so…

*********************

1 John 3:3-10 English Standard Version (ESV)

3 And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.

4 Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. 5 You know that he appeared in order to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. 6 No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. 7 Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. 8 Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. 9 No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. 10 By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.

The Declaration of Dependence upon God and His Holy Bible

I just signed this here at Andrew Womack Ministries…

http://www.awmi.net/declaration

The Declaration..

DECLARATION OF DEPENDENCE
UPON GOD AND HIS HOLY BIBLE

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. Since our Creator gave us these rights, we declare that no government has the right to take them away. Among these rights is the right to exercise our Christian beliefs as put forth in God’s Holy Bible.

We therefore declare that God grants life at conception and no one has the right to take that life unless it is a direct threat to the life of the mother.

Marriage was instituted by God between one man and one woman. The Lord gave only this family unit the responsibility to have children and raise them in the fear of the Lord.

We therefore respectfully reserve the right to refuse any mandate by the government that forces us to fund or support abortion. We also oppose same sex-marriage, polygamy, bestiality, and all other forms of sexual perversion prohibited by Holy Scripture.

We proclaim that Jesus has provided the cure for all sin and therefore reach out to the sinner in love, but do not embrace the sin, knowing its destructive nature.

Therefore, we, the undersigned– not only as Christians but also believing we have the constitutional right as Americans to follow these time honored Christian beliefs– commit to conducting our churches, ministries, businesses, and personal lives in accordance with our Christian faith and choose to obey God rather than man.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

A declaration that as a Berean I fully relate.

The life, the wait, and the move of the Lord

The Lord will move where, and whenever He wants and I’m alright by it all.

There has been a constant prompting for the last several weeks concerning fasting and other things.  It’s been like this continual call and restlessness when my attention is away from Him.  So I took a look at the Hebrew calendar and I see the reason why.

Last Sunday, there was and unusual prompting in my spirit and Tuesday  I discovered that the 13th was the 29th of Elul the Erev Rosh Hashanah.   It was like a light bulb going off in mah brain.  Yes, I do have a tendency of some cluelessness.   Something I’ve been praying about.  lol.

It’s so funny how we can be so clueless and so on top of other things.

Life, huh?

So since then, I’ve discovered some new books by John Miller that has taken me to a new level of prayer and prepareness for life and things to come, and I’ve wrestled with mah thing about prayer books.  But I would be alert, and prepared than lax and then the enemy attack while I wasn’t looking.

There is laziness, and then there’s watchful alertness.   Big diff but must be noted to one’s own self.

During all this I’ve been discovering a ton of things, information and lovely things…

John Waller’s album, The Blessing.  LOVE IT!  This album speaks so much especially when a person is craving more of God and all of Him, everything concerning Him.

My church has undergone a number of changes.. all of which I’ve been mindful and prayerful of because I’ve learned the wisdom of something my dad told me as a child.  ‘Think before you speak.’  4 words with such wisdom to it.

So I keep my mouth on watch and my eyes/ears alert, praying always with all manner of prayer and supplication before Him. BTW, I’m one of those people who so obsessed with Yeshua and the Word that if I were a cat I’d be rolling on it all the time.  XD If I could ABSORB the Word through my skin I would love it.  XD

Where am I going with all this?  I’m sorta rambling.  I haven’t blogged here in a good while.. this is sorta like the state of whatsbeengoingonwitme. =)

So I’ve been doing alot of reading, praying and researching and have found that all the stuff that has been weighing on me and areas where He’s been calling me comes together when I do the research… like this…

There is a grace of God, where double gates will be opened for those who seek to enter in to heaven’s gate (bethel the house of God), where unity in God (according to His ordained quorum)is blessed as we join in true community with each other and the Lord. This is a coming away to the Lord, and involves the need to construct the outer wall, and to place the blood of Christ over the entrances.

We are still in the season of war, in natural and spiritual, involving battles between kingdoms. Press in for the warfare of heaven, knowing our weapons are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. Be alert, and pray, for the rest from kingdom wars on earth is at risk….man’s works will endeavour to rise up. The grace of God that brings an overflow of Him, Jesus Christ in us and His church, and thus being a sanctuary and answer in the season of war. A true place of rest, perhaps even from the season of war, where the battle strategy is to rest in Him. The works of man in the trading and financial systems in the world are completely vulnerable to the writhing of Leviathan as he is moved away from the church.

This clarifies to me the constant urge in keeping watch over my territory, the land and property..praying a covering over family and friends.  Feeling the need to be more watchful.

On Wednesday, the wbs is studying Kelly Minter’s study on 1-3 John…

 

 

 

 

 

This last one I just had to post because I heart it.  I’ve been studying on the HS and I found this to be true.

3.24.15 Years later…

Some songs are just timeless and perfect no matter what decade…

Years later after I first heard this song, it still soothes..

All Right  – lyrics

Sung by: Amy Grant

“All Right” was written by Huff, Dann/gill, Amy Grant/huff, Dann/naish, Philip L..
Looking out to the hills, to the setting sun

I feel a cold wind bound to come
Another change, another end I cannot see
But your faithfulness to me is making it all right

I fall down on my knees, tell me that it’s all right
You give me what I need
Years of knockin’ on heaven’s door
Have taught me this, if nothing more
That it’s all right, what may come

I’ve heard it said, ‘When the river’s running high
You get to higher ground or you die’
Well, muddy waves of pain washed over me
And it only made me see

It’s gonna be all right
I, I fall down on my knees
Tell me that it’s all right
You give me what I need

Years of knockin’ on heaven’s door
Have taught me this, if nothing more
That it’s all right, what may come

When will I learn there’re no guarantees?
What strengthens hope, my eyes have never seen
But it won’t be long till the faith will be sight
And the heavens will say

It’s all right
(All right)
(All right)
(All right)

All right, I fall down on my knees
Tell me that it’s all right
You give me what I need

Years of knockin’, heaven’s door
Have taught me this, if nothing more
And it’s all right, whatever comes

All right, fall on my knees
Tell me that it’s all right
You give me what I need
(After all these)
Years of knockin’ on heaven’s door
(Years of knockin’ on heavens’ door)

(It’s gonna be)
All right
(Ooh, yeah)
All right

I fall down on my knees, tell me that it’s all right
‘Cause you give me what I need
(After all these years of knockin’ on heaven’s door)
Years of knockin’ on heaven’s door

(It’s gonna be)
All right
Whatever comes, yes sir
All right
I fall down on my knees
All right

2.18.15 – briefly what happens when you’re immersed in bible study

I have been so caught up in the study of the Apostle John.  John the Revelator.

So I’m near the end of the workbook where it goes on in Revelation, and I discovered after all these years one can still be astounded by what one learns in the Word.

I’ve read Revelation before…avoided it as a kid…blah blah’ed as a teen, and now, in the recent weeks discovered how in awe I am and would be if it were me in John’s place.  My heart literally.. I literally was in awe. I couldn’t take it..

So now I’ve been reading Rev. 14.  for a portion of the day absorbing the Word.

That’s what it feels like lately…absorbing the Word. When I have the urge to hear Misty Edwards sing Ez. 1 which ties into this study, and I discover an album I haven’t heard before, Measure of Love. When I get to the song on the cd called the Harlot and my mind goes,’what?’ and I’m thinking why is she singing about the Whore of Babylon? Duh…

I listen to the vid on youtube and it hits me..girl, there was more than one Harlot in the Word. *shakes mah head* I’ve been in the Revelation a bit long. lol.

Here’s the song with Misty in the Prayer Room at Ihop.

1.14.15- Purity, holiness, and the wonderings of the heart

This is also a wee experiment that I am doing in order to figure out wordpress’ program… so if you don’t see the video,’Holy’ with Jesus Culture then just click the link below it.

Here’s the link…  Holy – Jesus Culture

It kinda amuses me that when a fasting goes ‘right’ with me that the issue of purity, and holiness becomes a wee bit more obsessed than usual.  lol.

And as of late I’ve become a tad bit more hungry for worship music.  I’ve noticed that my musical leanings tend to change as the season of growth that comes in the Spirit.

And the hunger to worship Him more increases the hunger for more of the Word.  This new season in Him and move from the transition to this new level has been a bit odd but an encounter for more of Him.

So I may ramble on more here, and share more observations as time goes on.

A

I had a post all ready to post with quotes and then suddenly it disappeared.. I guess the enemy stole it because he needed to learn something.

 

AHAHAHAHAHA!

 

BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD! XD
