A Strategy: Unlock the Door – The Treasure Lies Within

In a vision I heard the Lord say, “Step over the threshold and do not be afraid. Turn the knob. Do you not see it? The pile of treasure glows. It is in your soul.”

I stood outside a dark brown, wooden doorway. As I turned the knob and the door partially opened, I saw a huge pile of coins on the floor, glowing with a green light. Pushing the door open, I stepped through the doorway and stood in a large room. I could see the outlines of the walls but they were indistinct and darkened.  All I could really focus on was this pile of coins…just the pile of coins laying in the center of the room.

Taking a step forward toward this pile it suddenly grew, exponentially! Whereas before I had been looking down at the pile of coins, instantly I was looking UP AT this huge heap of glowing coins, now taller than me. It had grown so incredibly quickly, with literally no warning as I took a step toward it.

I realized in that moment that the Lord is setting us up for revival. Somehow, I knew that the coins are resources: wisdom, peace … a strategy.

“Yes, Lord! A Strategy!” I cried out.

Then the walls faded from darkness into an old-fashioned room.  I could see the wallpaper and a large, white fireplace. I knew somehow that the fireplace was the only source of heat and light in this room. Next to the pile was a family, kneeling, side by side, gazing upon the pile of coins; however, their pile was much smaller, not the giant heap of coins that I had seen earlier.

I know the rest of the family is there, but the father is the focus.  He wore a white, curled wig with a ponytail, such as one would wear in colonial days. I knew now that this is during the revolution – the revolutionary war. The Lord is bringing a revolution — to His world, His family, His revival!

As I looked upon the father’s face, it was glowing from the reflection of the coins. He was smiling sweetly with utter contentedness and total satisfaction as he gazed upon the coins.

Inquiring of the Lord, I asked him, “What is the significance of the fireplace, Lord?” Without any hesitation God said,

“People gather by the fire!”

That hit me so deeply in my spirit! Of course! Yes, we all want to be by the fire! In the natural, we gravitate to the fireplace when it is lit; we gather around a bonfire or a campfire. We long for, are attracted to and gather around the supernatural revival fire of the Holy Spirit, too!

He continued, “The Fire is the treasure within! Ignite it! Unlock the door! Swing it open wide for all to see. Step over the threshold! Allow your treasure to glow.”

I asked Him, “How do I ignite it Lord? Help me understand! Show me!”

He didn’t answer immediately, but just moments later, as soon as I turned on some worship tunes, a song came on that I had never heard. As I stood for a moment to listen to the lyrics. It was about fire, joy and testifying! I smiled as I realized the Lord had answered my plea. The strategy is to ignite the fire within with joy, the joy of the Lord, spread by the word of our testimony!

YES, LORD! We overcome with our testimony (see Revelation 12:11)! The right testimony at the right moment can be the catalyst – the SPARK – that ignites the raging inferno revival fire!

This ties right into what the Lord has me doing in this season. I am gathering “Breakthrough Bytes” from anyone who has experienced breakthrough in any area of his or her life. These are short video testimonies of breakthrough – and ANY testimony is a breakthrough! The goal is to broadcast these short video clips about breakthrough throughout the day online and on social media to encourage the body of Christ. This plan of God could help to ignite the fire of revival!

The Lord speaks in so many ways, but it is His heart to gather us around THE Fire – HIS Fire! – the Fire of His Holy Spirit.

We have seen some revival, a little here, a little there…but I believe that the Lord would have us SUDDENLY, EXPONENTIALLY walk into an explosion of His Revival Fire, combust and burn with Holy Ghost flames! I believe, just as the pile of coins suddenly, exponentially increased in size, we will do the same with our resources for revival – peace, wisdom and strategies! Our testimonies will encourage and convince, evangelize and give hope, providing peace and comfort in the God that is no respecter of persons (see Acts 10:34). After all, if He’ll do it for me, He’ll do it for you!

Let’s shout it out! Get out your megaphones and shout out about the goodness of God through your testimonies! Ignite the fire within! Ignite the Revival Flame, with joy and the word of your testimony.

Many, many blessings in this season of revival!

Do Not Be Condemned!

I hear the Lord saying,

The accuser of the brethren has been working overtime and My people are feeling condemned. This is not right.

Romans 8:1 “Therefore, [there is] now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live [and] walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit.”

These are more than just words. Paul himself cried out to me on more than one occasion to remove the thorn from his flesh – his sin, his ungodly desires, those that he just couldn’t stop doing!

“O unhappy and pitiable and wretched man that I am!” Romans 7:24

“For I fail to practice the good deeds I desire to do, but the evil deeds that I do not desire to do are what I am ever doing.” Romans 7:19

My people believe that because they carry My Spirit that they are to be perfect – they should not do or think the evil ways that they do. I am here to say that is simply not truth. You are becoming perfected…you don’t start out that way!

Understand that there is much more going on in the spiritual world that filters into your natural world than you will ever know or understand. In fact, it would take all eternity to figure it out. All of it impacts your thought life, your actionable life and your spiritual life…even your prayer life.

I know these things and I do not fault you, and here is proof, for my friend Paul experienced and wrote about what I want you to KNOW in your heart:

14 We know that the Law is spiritual; but I am a creature of the flesh [carnal, unspiritual], having been sold into slavery under [the control of] sin.

15 For I do not understand my own actions [I am baffled, bewildered]. I do not practice or accomplish what I wish, but I do the very thing that I loathe [which my moral instinct condemns].

 

16 Now if I do [habitually] what is contrary to my desire, [that means that] I acknowledge and agree that the Law is good (morally excellent) and that I take sides with it.

 

17 However, it is no longer I who do the deed, but the sin [principle] which is at home in me and has possession of me.

 

18 For I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is, in my flesh. I can will what is right, but I cannot perform it. [I have the intention and urge to do what is right, but no power to carry it out.]

 

19 For I fail to practice the good deeds I desire to do, but the evil deeds that I do not desire to do are what I am [ever] doing.

 

20 Now if I do what I do not desire to do, it is no longer I doing it [it is not myself that acts], but the sin [principle] which dwells within me [fixed and operating in my soul].

 

21 So I find it to be a law (rule of action of my being) that when I want to do what is right and good, evil is ever present with me and I am subject to its insistent demands.

 

22 For I endorse and delight in the Law of God in my inmost self [with my new nature]. [Ps. 1:2.]

 

23 But I discern in my bodily members [in the sensitive appetites and wills of the flesh] a different law (rule of action) at war against the law of my mind (my reason) and making me a prisoner to the law of sin that dwells in my bodily organs [in the sensitive appetites and wills of the flesh].”

 

And here is how you are judged this day:

Straightening up, Jesus said to her, “Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?” 

 She answered, “No one, Lord!” And Jesus said, “I do not condemn you either. Go. From now on sin no more.” (John 8:10-11)

Before I came to earth you would have been stoned for your sins.  But since I have come – and am still here now –  I forgive you, even before you become perfected!

I say to you today, “Go and Sin No More.” I know you cannot be perfect, and I do not expect that. One day you shall be, when you sit with me in my temple in heaven. Then, sin will have no more rule or reign over you, because you will have no more earthly bodily members (see Romans 7:23 above).

Until then, know I love you! There has never been a moment when you were unloved – even AS you were sinning, I still loved you, and I ever shall. You are mine. You are branded. You are my child and I will NEVER change my mind about you.

 

 

God’s Word has THE FINAL WORD! It is Finished-Finished!

In Luke 7:7 the centurion said to Jesus, through some friends,

Neither did I consider myself worthy to come to You. But [just] speak a word, and my servant boy will be healed.”

Speak here in Greek is LEGO, Strong’s 3004 légō (originally, “lay down to sleep,” used later of “laying an argument to rest,” i.e. bringing a message to closure) – properly, to say (speak), moving to a conclusion (bringing it to closure, “laying it to rest”).

The Word here in Greek is LOGOS, Strong’s 3056 lógos (from 3004 /légō, “speaking to a conclusion”) – a word, being the expression of a thought; a saying. 3056 /lógos (“word”) is preeminently used of Christ (Jn 1:1), expressing the thoughts of the Father through the Spirit.

I love how God speaks on so many levels simultaneously! The book of Revelation says that His voice is the voice of many waters, so I am always looking for Him to layer meanings when He speaks.

So, it is important to note that LOGOS comes from LEGO – both words mean conclusion – or, it is finished! That means that God’s Word (LOGOS) has the FINAL WORD (LEGO) – the final say so! It is Finished-Finished!

On top of that, the number 7 means Finished as well! So, in Luke 7 (Finished) verse 7 (Finished) the word uses LEGO and LOGOS, Finished-Finished!

What God is trying to tell us through this tiny passage of scripture with the HUGE MEANING is this: we need to grasp the concept the centurion knew experientially…he spoke and things happened – BECAUSE HE HAD THE FINAL SAY-SO! Not just because he spoke, but because of his AUTHORITY wrapped up in his words, coupled with his KNOWLEDGE (belief, faith) that whatever he said would happen!

We MUST understand that we have authority given to us by God Himself. When we open our mouths, Jesus comes out – or at least His authority does, wrapped up in our words!

Here’s what it means to us, as His children, the body – we have WAY MORE POWER to change the world than we are currently utilizing! The difference is knowledge that we have it and belief that it will work. Simply put, have Faith like the centurion’s!

  • Let’s apply this to healing, as an example. Using the centurion’s own words, He said,

For I also am a man [daily] subject to authority, with soldiers under me. And I say to one, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my bond servant, Do this, and he does it.”

We already know that we have authority, and that we are to use it. But here is an extremely important nuance – the centurion said that his authority was the same kind of authority that Jesus had. READ IT AGAIN! He said, “For I ALSO am a man SUBJECT TO AUTHORITY with soldiers under me…” He saw Jesus as the General of His Army, with soldiers under him – just like him! He acknowledged that his servant’s sickness was under Jesus’ command, and that it MUST “GO” when He said so!

The definition of the Hebrew word for COMMAND implies words of force or power as a General commands his troops. This includes the TEN  COMMANDMENTS! We have always been intended to be His army!

By this we come to know (perceive, recognize, and understand) that we abide (live and remain) in Him and He in us: because He has given (imparted) to us of His [Holy] Spirit,” (1John 4:13 AMPC).

The Bible says that He is in us, and we are in Him. We MUST understand that the same exact authority that Jesus had is the same exact authority that we have. All we have to do is to choose to BELIEVE it. We have heard it over and over and over; however, in this moment in history WE must KNOW this in our “Knower”!

By using our God-given authority, we open our mouth and Jesus comes out; therefore, when we tell pain, sickness, infirmity or cancer to go, it goes. It has to, because it is under our command! Change your mind! Simply BELIEVE it will happen!

Now, let’s move on to making things COME to us!

  • Now let’s apply this to finances, one of my favorite subjects! Again, using the centurion’s own words:

For I also am a man [daily] subject to authority, with soldiers under me. And I say to one, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my bond servant, Do this, and he does it.”

It is the same thing, just a different command! We open our mouths and Jesus comes out! We tell finances to COME, and they must COME, because the Word of God has the final word!

Just like the centurion, acknowledge that ALL FINANCES are under Jesus’ command – and He is in you! Need money? Talk to it! Tell it to come! Speak it in! Need a new job? Speak it in! Find some scriptures and decree them, speak them, sing them! The Word of God is all-powerful and has the Final Say! Lay the argument to rest! Finish it! Speak the word – Lego Logos!

Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom,” (Luke 12:2).

Most importantly, BELIEVE IT!! You must believe it BEFORE you see it. You must KNOW that your authority is the “God kind” and He gave it to you, straight from the throne room of the Kingdom of God. You MUST know that your authority is Jesus’ authority, and not just something that jumped in your head. Open your mouth! Decree a thing! Take authority over the commands your soldiers are obeying. Give them proper, biblical marching orders. You will be victorious, because the Word is victorious! It is finished!

Much love and HUGE blessings in this new year!
