THE MIRACLE OF THE BROOK

the miracle of the brook_edited-1

There are seasons In our walks with God when He calls us to hide in Him. Hiding In Christ is when we put our complete focus and trust in Him. This usually happens when you are faced with what seems to be the impossible. When life takes you to a place that is beyond yourself. We can do one of two things. First we can harden our hearts, caused by fear and anger of what we are faced with. Second we can pour ourselves into Christ. Hiding ourselves in Christ by hiding ourselves in His Word, through worship, continual prayer and placing your full trust in Him.

In 1 Kings 17:1 Elijah is told by God to hide in Him. The call was to hide by the brook of Cherith, The dry brook. The symbol of the dry brook represents those problems or situations in life that are bigger than ourselves. They require faith or test our faith. When we are faced with a dry brook, if we hide ourselves in Christ many things can happen. First we will see God provide for our need like as for Elijah the ravens brought him bread. Second we will be called to wait on the Lord for direction and answers. Third we will be called to walk out from the dry brook taking with us what we gained during the time of hiding in the Lord.

You see placing your trust in God is a gift and when we choose to do so, God shows up and does big things but it doesn’t happen without the season of hiding in Him. God puts things in you during the time of hiding, making the miracle that is coming possible. Notice in the picture, the brook is not dry. I believe It is overflowing because God wanted you to see the mental picture of His overflowing provisions that come when we walk close to Him during a dry brook experience.

What happened next was that Elijah rose and went to Zarephath to the widow. This was the first miracle of God releasing his purpose from the time of hiding in Him. The widow only had enough oil for her and her son to eat before they laid down to die. Elijah told her not to fear to make a cake with what she had and bring it to him and then make some for her and her son. Then the Lord said the Jar of oil shall not be spent, and the jug of oil shall not be empty until the day the Lord sends rain upon the earth. This means the blessings of our faithfulness and the rewards of trusting Him. His word shows He is faithful to provide abundantly promising the rain that will cause the dry brook to overflow once again.

The second miracle came from the power of God manifested through Elijah and His faithfulness to God. Then the boy died and the women said to Elijah “You have come to me to bring my sin to remembrance and to cause the death of my son.” Elijah said to her” give me your son and put him in my arms.” He carried him up stairs to his bed prayed and the boy was brought to life.

Dead situations will come to life from our obedience in a dry brook experience. They could be finances, a job that is needed, a failing relationship. Many things can come alive from this place of obedience in the Lord. This is the truth of the word of God we are so blessed to be a part of. If you don’t know the story I suggest you read it. 1Kings 17:1

It is good to practice hiding in the Lord always especially when times are good, it will make it that much easier when things get tough. Enjoy your day and hide in the Lord. God bless you and may He keep you strong in Him. ūüôā The miracle of the brook can be purchased from our store. ¬†www.fullofrosesinspirationals.com

THE SINNER CAN WALK WITH GOD

logo

If I was put on this earth for one reason It is to bring the message the sinner can walk with God! So many people struggle with the fact that if they walk with God They will Instantly feel guilty about who they are and feel bad all of the time. If I walk with God I will have to give up everything I enjoy. It kills me inside to see what is taking place in the minds of people. Usually people can tell when someone is lying to them but It is much harder to realize when you are lying to yourself. If we could see and understand our own lies that direct our decisions It would radically change our lives. I believe this is Satan’s greatest tool. Satan can keep people from the truth simply by the lies in their own heads.

What If you didn’t listen to those lies and you decided to believe God loves you right where you are? What if you chose to believe He died on the cross with you in mind, so you wouldn’t have to bare the shame of your sin. This does not mean you do not have to recognize your sin. It simply means we can give it to Him to never be remembered again. The subject of grace and love. What kind of door does this open for us? I believe it opens the door of acceptance and deep love. You see the cross is the bridge Christ built for us. A way for us to be able to cross it and stand before God in our broken state. Notice I said cross it! Put the cross to it, your sin that is.

If you never cross the bridge Christ built for you, It will be impossible for you to come to the knowledge of His acceptance and love for you. It is this encounter of truth Satan doesn’t want you to know. True love, pure love, holy love divine acceptance is the only thing that can shatter the human heart. You will never be different or want to change unless you encounter the real Jesus. Matthew 11:30 says for my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. This means the lie you can’t approach Him is exactly that a lie. Jesus loves you and wants you to know Him right where you are. I challenge you to do nothing but encounter the Jesus I know and you wont have to change, His love will change you!!!!

May the Glory of God be revealed in your life and the blinders be removed. May you enter into His unfailing love and grace. Bless you today ūüôā

SHILOH

josh1_edited-1

One morning I was out front where I have my morning coffee and pray¬† to God. This particular morning I was in a very bad place, there were not one but several things I was going through. I didn’t understand why God would allow me to go through so many things at once. I was really troubled and I was faced with several difficult situations. You know, when you are hard pressed in all directions and our enemy the liar wants to make things worse! So I was rambling to God and Going from one issue to the next when I heard in my head Shiloh, Shiloh, Shiloh. I said ” you know I don’t know what Shiloh means Lord but I will look it up when I am done praying to you.” so I finished praying and got out my Iphone and Goggled Shilo which I spelled wrong and Google corrected it for me. I knew I had the right one because It said from the Hebrew bible. This is what it said, I wont give it all but you can Google it to get the rest.

Shiloh is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible as an assembly place for the people of Israel. The “whole congregation of Israel assembled…and set up the tabernacle of the congregation…” (Joshua 18:1), built under Moses’ direction from God (Exodus 26) to house the Ark of the Covenant, also built under Moses’ direction from God (Exodus 25). According to Talmudic sources, the tent sanctuary remained at Shiloh for 369 years[3] until the Ark of the Covenant was taken into the battle camp (1 Samuel 4:3‚Äď5) at Eben-Ezer and captured by the Philistines at Aphek (probably Antipatris). At some point during its long stay at Shiloh, the portable tent seems to have been enclosed within a compound or replaced with a standing structure that had “doors” (1 Samuel 3:15) a precursor to the Temple. The Mishkan left Shiloh when Eli HaCohen died.

The erection of the Tabernacle and the Sacred vessels, as in Exodus 40:17‚Äď19; from the 1728 Figures de la Bible Shiloh was the center of Israelite worship. The people assembled here for the mandatory feasts and sacrifices, and here lots were cast for the various tribal areas and for the Levitical cities. This was a sacred act, revealing how God would choose to parcel out the land within the tribes.

It talks about the city where the Ark of the Covenant was kept. The presence of our God. Where they would assemble and where they would take the ark of the Covenant into battle. Where they worshiped and where they sacrificed to God.

I was taken back and I understood why God was interrupting me as I ranted. Our heart is now where the presence of God is kept, our heart is now the Ark of the covenant. Our heart is the door way to the kingdom and it is where we go into battle. So what God was telling me was to take the battles that needed to be battled to Shiloh and worship in Shiloh. From my heart I found a place with God in the old and new in Shiloh.

TO THE NEW AND UNBELIEVER

logo

I am writing this post to you because we embark on the journey of finding the truth together! My challenge to you Is to give my blog a chance. Give Jesus a chance to invade your life for the small amount of time it takes to read and discover what is true and what isn’t. As a man of spirit and flesh I can tell you I am far from perfect, though I have the living truth. The truth the bible says will set you free! The truth is the promise in Gods Word that we can trust and believe in Him and His Promises rather than in our truth, flesh and sin. See His Blood is enough to cover you every morning, for His mercy and truth are new every morning. It is about you discovering the truth and finding that He is the answer!

I can tell you that If you grab a hold of this truth you are blessed! This is where faith and believing come into action. As Apostle Paul wrote he is the Chief among sinners. I would like to argue that lol. What made Him successful in his faith was that though he was imperfect Christ perfection was made perfect in him. He went on to become one of the best leaders of all time. When you come into the truth simply believing in Christ and His plan for your imperfection, your life will enter into a place you could never imagine. It starts by seeking, discovering, growing in the truth. I offer my testimony of this truth as I move into His promise. God bless you and may He reveal the truth of His grace in your life.

A SPREADING FIRE

logoI did not expect this post. This will be my first post without an inspirational poem and picture. With this many already following this post I want to make a promise. We are about to take a wonderful journey together. The Lord has put it on my heart to write this post. You are the light of His purpose and world. We all have a purpose in Him. What my prayer is on our journey together and what the Lord has put on my heart is this, We are going to catch ablaze! Some of you are already anointed and full of His spirit. Some of you are still seeking and yet some are waiting to catch blaze. With the anointing God¬† has given me¬† to inspire and provoke His spirit in you and the prayer that Is involved in the ministry and It’s future has you in mind.

My heart has always been to help others hear from God. Planting His seeds and having confidence He will water. The years I was an Evangelist preacher I combined the insight of the spirit guided poetry into the preaching. Great things took place during those seven years and as I share my testimony with you it is for one reason and one reason only and that is Gods reason! The poetry is deep and will challenge you to go deep, for God is deep, a deep ocean of love and mercy.

We are going to see a move of God together In your ministry and mine and the ministries about to begin.¬† A fire has been started, visions have been given and His spirit is on the move. I am encouraged of the move of God I see. The boldness of spirit, the heart for the lost and the courage’s people who are going to rise up in the name of the Lord to serve His truth and purposes.

There are way to many messages for me to reply to, so forgive me If I do not respond. I am smiling and praying for you all. I imagine your gifting and the gifting to come as we join together for one purpose to worship our savior. To grow together and to share our gifts. We walk in faith, I don’t have all the reasons for the direction God is leading me. I am stepping out in faith and am trusting you are doing the same or¬† are about to. Listen to your heart and be open to his spirit and voice because we are entering an incredible time together. Please pray for me as I will continue to pray for you.¬† May the Lord bless you!
