“God sows, for yet a little while and I will…(fill in the blank)”. 

The bible fell open to Hosea this morning.  As I read, the Lord impressed upon me to write down the names of Hosea’s children, along with the definitions of each. I had to jump up to find a pen, which I did, and I settled back down to work.

In Hosea 1:4, the first child, a boy, was named Jezreel. God defines his name for us as “God sows”. Immediately afterward, in the same verse, He goes on to say, “…for yet a little while and I will…”

Following His instructions, I wrote this phrase down:

“God sows, for yet a little while and I will…” (Hosea 1:4 AMPC).

I sat back and stared at this phrase, because I realized that God was LITERALLY speaking out of His word, which He often does! It sounded almost exactly as if He was giving me the first part of a sentence … a fill-in-the-blank sentence!

“God sows, for yet a little while and I will…(fill in the blank)”. 

Listen and really HEAR this phrase, because God is speaking to us!  What do we do with a fill-in-the-blank sentence? We FILL IN THE BLANK, so fill in your blank! I filled in the blank with the thing for which I am expecting breakthrough! I encourage you to do the same!

Listen! He is saying that He has sowed (your breakthrough) but hang on just a little while longer and He will (your breakthrough)! He is not a man that He can lie (see Numbers 23:19)! His promises are ALWAYS Yes and Amen in the Beloved (see 2 Corinthians 1:20)!

“We are at the goal line! It is fourth and inches!”  I don’t know about you, but I know we are right on the brink of breakthrough! In fact, a couple mornings ago as we prayed together, my husband stated that he heard from Lord, “We are at the goal line! It is fourth and inches!”

Now, if you think about this word picture, and if you know anything about football, you know that on a fourth down with only inches to go to make a goal all the offensive players and all the defensive players crush together in one spot — at the goal line. The two teams face off and battle with everything they have over some of the most valuable real estate in all of sports – mere inches!

The two opposing teams stare directly into each other’s faces when the ball is only inches away from getting into the end zone.  It is the defending team’s JOB DESCRIPTION – the oppositionto push back with all their might to keep the offensive players from getting across the goal line and scoring.

Conversely, it is the JOB DESCRIPTION of the team that has the ball to push forward with all their might and strength and power to get that ball across the goal line to victory! This incredibly fierce battle is for just a few inches of terrain! 

Do you hear God today? There are only a few, valuable inches of real estate for us to battle over before we cross the goal line!

Do you want to know why the heat has been turned up? Why the opposition has grown so intense? It’s because we are mere inches away from God’s sown seed coming to full fruition, and to see that harvest in our lives and in the Kingdom! We are mere inches away, mere moments from experiencing the fullness of His promises!

This is also why we are seeing such great depths of darkness with such “in your face” boldness. We are experiencing it up close and personal because we are literally standing face to face, toe to toe with the hordes of hell at the goal line, just inches away from the finish line to victory – OUR VICTORY!

“God sows, for yet a little while and I will…(fill in the blank)”.

The Lord would have us all to know today that we are mere inches away from our goal, mere moments away from BREAKTHROUGH! We must keep pushing forward with all that we have, not giving up an inch to the enemy, even as he pushes back. He is trying to keep us from getting that which God has already prophesied that we shall have – our promised land!

“Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts,” (Zechariah 4:6 KJV).

I exhort you today to hear the word of the Lord! He says HE WILL! Just hang in there just a little while longer! Remember, it is not by our might nor by our power but by His Holy Spirit! So keep pressing in to His Holy Spirit, keep pressing in to Him, and you will cross over those last few inches victoriously!

I am at the goal line right along with you, shoulder to shoulder, as we fight together, in unity!

Revival is going to hit like a tornado!

I had a dream that I was driving in my truck and Darryl was in the passenger seat. We felt uneasy and then I heard, Oh NO!

Suddenly I lost control of my truck. I felt a force moving it, spinning to the right, but it must have just bumped us, or barely touched us. It was a tornado. It moved us around, but as we came to a stop I saw another one out of the driver’s side window to my left, with another tornado right behind it. They were light colored and moving fast. Immediately a   second one picked up the truck and I realized we were spinning through the air, high off the ground. I remember thinking I would see a cow in the tornado, like in that movie! I started to say something to Darryl, but then passed out…End of Dream.

I remember having another tornado dream one time. I was sitting in my blue pickup in a parking lot with the door open. This was a truck from another period in my life – a tumultuous, painful period in my life; a period of destruction and devastation. In that dream, the tornado hit my truck, lifted it off the ground and just kept going. There was someone next to me in the truck, but I don’t know who – I always assumed it was Holy Spirit. I laid my head in his lap, out of fear. He covered me with a sky blue comforter, all the way over my head so I couldn’t see, as we were carried up.

When I awoke this morning from that dream, I was afraid! I thought, “No Lord! I don’t want to have trouble and devastation hit my life again!” That’s when the Lord reminded me of the first tornado dream in the blue truck. I had never gotten an interpretation for that first tornado dream, even though it was years ago. During that period in my life the Lord was just starting to take me into the deeper things of God, showing me about the prophetic and who I am in Him. That is when I laid my head in His lap in real life – I hid myself in God, and He covered me with His comforter, His Holy Spirit. He lifted me out of the world and into HIS world.

The first tornado dream took me out of me and hid me in God. The second tornado dream is going to do the same thing…but not just for me! It will be for both me and Darryl, and for Kingdom Promoters Ministry.

I realized the tornadoes I saw in this morning’s dream were white tornadoes, not black. This means good for us, not ill. They are coming fast and the first one will hit with power, changing our course here in the earth realm. The second one will lift us up higher into the heavenlies than we have ever been.

Sounds like Revival to me!

Enjoy the ride!

Greater Multiplication on Your Seed! Guaranteed!

I love it when God talks to me about Kingdom finances. I think He does it because He knows I will share!

Does this sound like you? Recently someone asked me how the Kingdom works. He said that he prays and tithes, yet his finances still haven’t changed. Does this sound like you? No worries! Many people need to better understand how Kingdom finances work!

Here are a few things God wants me to share with you. He wants His body to increase financially. If you do these things, you will have greater multiplication on your seed – guaranteed!

1: Here is the key: Do what God tells you to do. Even if it seems nuts, even if you are scared. Do it anyway. “Do whatever He tells you,” (John 2:5 ESV).

God gave me Blueprints and Strategies to Acquire Wealth but it didn’t automatically happen. One must FOLLOW a blueprint! Whatever God shows us we must still put it into action.

I won’t go into the entire word, but part of the strategy is to pay it forward – in essence, sow 10% of the amount that we wish to receive. It is tithing with expectation! Following this blueprint and the voice of God, I sowed EXPECTING TO RECEIVE ten times the amount of my seed.

Now, even though I’d seen His strategy work, the first time He told me to sow $1,200 into someone’s ministry I got scared! It was someone I really didn’t know that well, and I fought God for days. I tried to bargain with Him, hoping I could at least give it to someone that I knew!

Ultimately, I did it. I sowed into this person, because the Lord told me to. Almost immediately I got a message back that what I sowed into this ministry was direly needed. God knew! This was a confirmation for me. I knew then I had heard God. I just had to keep reminding myself that it is HIS money, after all – and not my own. That made it easier.

In the months that followed, I received a check for $10,000 and twice for $2,000. God not only made it up, he multiplied it back — exactly like His word says. We must trust Him. Do it scared! If He will do it for me, He will do it for YOU, too!

  1. ALL THE MONEY IS GOD’S, but we get to steward it. “The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, declares the LORD of hosts,” (Haggai 2:8 ESV).

I mentioned this a little while ago, and it needs to become second nature to think this way.

Look here — if you have $2500 a month to live on and you are tithing $250 and He asks you to give $500 to someone – do it! It’s ALL HIS MONEY. I think that’s the part we miss. We think of it as OURS, when in fact, it’s HIS. He requires the tithe and allows us to steward the other 90%; but realistically it’s all His.

It is fun when you start thinking you are spending someone else’s money! Just reach into God’s pocket anytime you want and get more! It makes it easy to give it away when it’s not yours. Think about that! Selah.

  1. He ALWAYS gives us back what we sow… ALWAYS. He doesn’t want our seed! What He REALLY wants is to give us the MULTIPLICATION on that seed. “Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you,” (Luke 6:38)

Sometimes we are so afraid to turn loose of our seed in case it doesn’t grow. Here is a hard truth: it will NEVER grow in your hand. It must be in the ground to grow.  That means you must open your hand to let go of the seed to sow it. You cannot hang onto it.

You will get it back, so stop worrying about it. But ONLY sow it where He tells you to – and HOW MUCH He tells you to sow. That is crucial….because He knows.

GIVE HERE

  1. Don’t ever NOT GIVE because you think you don’t have money, or the money is earmarked for expenses. “…but she out of her poverty put inall the livelihood that she had,” (Luke 21:4).

Everybody has money somewhere…even if it’s couch change or emergency money socked away. God wouldn’t ask you to give it if you didn’t have it, and He will get it back to you – multiplied!

I have heard countless stories of people who have sown their rent money or their electric bill money — and it came back to them supernaturally multiplied. It has happened to me, too! But ONLY do it if God tells you to do it.

What I have found is THE MORE YOU DON’T WANT TO GIVE, the greater the multiplication on that seed!! Guaranteed! It means the devil is fighting you so hard because he knows how much that seed is going to accomplish.

  1. The more generous you are, the greater the harvest on your seed. “…Whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully,” (2 Cor. 9:6)

That just stands to reason! If you sow $10 you will receive multiplication on $10. If you sow $1,000 you will receive multiplication on $1,000…it’s simple math.  No matter what, you will receive the greatest benefit when you give what God tells you to give!

Don’t give solely to get – unless He tells you to do it. Even the Blueprints and Strategies word is based on a God-goal. We must have the right heart. We cannot be double-minded. If you want to give to someone, ask the Lord first. He will tell you. Follow the peace. It is CRITICAL that we ask Him – and then do as He says.

Read 2 Chronicles 31:4-10. King Hezekiah commanded the people to give, and they gave JOYOUSLY, both first fruits and tithes. God is commanding us to do the same; however, it’s because He wants to multiply what we give.

  1. Lastly, EXPECT GOD TO MOVE ON YOUR BEHALF. EXPECT Him to do what He says He will do. EXPECT Him to multiply your seed.  EXPECT Him to eliminate debt, reduce expenses and give you miracle money!

No matter what, God is still God! He loves us and He wants us to do well. He gave us a set of rules to adhere to, and when we do, we will receive our expected end: GOOD (see Jeremiah 29:11 KJV).

Seek God and ask Him yourself. Then do what He says.

I pray for brilliant ideas and witty inventions for you (see Proverbs 8:12). I pray for gross, shamefully, ridiculously huge multiplication on the seed that you have planted already. I decree that you are a people of substance – and that your foundation is strong and built on the Lord.

There is much more, but of this I am sure: God has given us a blueprint, called the Bible. It is up to us to follow it.

Blessings and abundance as you follow His Kingdom financial strategies!

In prayer I heard the Lord ask me if I wanted to hear about March. Excited, because I rarely get a “monthly” word, I said YES, of course! He immediately began:

“Death cannot hold you. The grave cannot hold you. Your flesh dies but you live, forever, in my presence. You are forever a sweet fragrance in my nostrils. So, have no fear. Have no fear. Only courage, joy, honor.”

This caught me off guard. I thought, “Wow! Am I going to die?” Then I realized He was talking about our spirit man. Our spirit leaves our jar of clay when we are in His presence to be united with Him.

Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes, For you will spread abroad to the right hand and to the left;”(Isaiah 54:2-3 AMPC).

Then I heard, “Be enlarged, O tent. Be raised up, O tent pegs, for the King has arrived! The place of His dwelling is so much larger than anything we can make.”

He has come to claim His bride. Then, as I looked up I saw Jesus walking, wearing His crown. He went right over the top of me, as if I was watching from under a glass ceiling. He stopped and hunched over to look at me through the ceiling and then stood again to continue walking. His love and mercy and caring were so evident. He stopped for the one – for me. He had to come down to see what I was doing from beneath him; yet, He was glad to do it.  He acknowledges the individual, even in the midst of the crowd.

His royal robes swished as he walked on….to where?

“Where are you going Lord?” I asked.

He replied, “To Israel, my joy, my diadem, my jewel, my pearl of great price. She is my bride. I am come to Israel to gather up my beloved and to take you home, to be with me for all eternity.”

Shocked, I asked, “Are you saying You are coming next month, Lord? But no man knows the day or the hour!” (see Matthew 24:36).

“And nor do you,” He said. “You only know the season of my coming. Yet, you know it is time. You feel it in the air, you sense it by the spirit (see 1 Chronicles 12:32; Luke 12:56). When I move, you move. When I go, you go. You are forever with me, beginning yesterday.”

Gossamer Truth. Next, I saw a flash of bright, white light, and then suddenly a young woman, her eyes respectfully downcast. She was brilliant, and it caught my breath! A sheer, flowing robe came resting upon her shoulders. It was glittering, and so was she. She was clad in ancient garb, chaste, with a high neck. Her head and hair were mostly covered. I watched as the robe seemed to fasten itself under her neck. I heard Him tell her to look up, and she did. He leaned over to kiss her cheeks. It was the kiss of a beloved one – a father, a brother.

He said, “You are my bride, my beloved one. With this garb I do thee wed.”

There was an instantaneous transformation in her demeanor. Suddenly she sparkled! Although she was lovely before she was thoroughly radiant now. In the vision the Lord focused on the jewels in her collar, on her cheeks, under her eyes. She was covered in shimmering diamond dust.

I heard Him say, “I have come for my bride. The bride that worships Me is the bride that lives with Me, both now and forever.”

INVEST Here!
I heard an ocean’s roar, but realized it was people cheering. It was the beloved of the King who cheer raucously, loudly, because they were in His presence – Truly in his presence, in His Revival.

He is come. The King is come.

We have been crying out, “Come, Lord Jesus, Come!” for a millennium. He revealed to me that His presence comes and it goes, it ebbs and it flows.  His presence rises and swells like the ocean tide. The ocean is never truly gone.  It is always right there, but sometimes it seems to be greater or lesser, closer or further away. Such is the presence of God, in the person of Jesus Christ. He is never gone. His presence just seems to be closer at some times and further away at others. It seems that He draws closer and closer in response to our worship. We call this Revival.

“Blessed and fortunate and happy and spiritually prosperous (in that state in which the born-again child of God enjoys His favor and salvation) are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God), for they shall be completely satisfied!” (Matthew 5:6)

Get ready to be fed! Many who long for Him to come will be fed and given drink. For that is what He longs to do, to feed us as He freed us. To give us plenty, and more of Himself.

“Hear Here,” He said.  “Don’t go. I want to give you more, so much more. You want to hear from me, I am here. I am present to those who are also present in my presence.”

STOP, DROP and ROLL!  Get in His presence! Stop what you are doing. Drop to your knees, because that’s how we Roll – in the glory, in the presence of God. No matter where we are or what we are doing. When He wants us to come to Him, we come, because He has come. We drop to our knees because we are the glory carriers of the King.

“Wrap yourself with Me. Put on your gossamer truth. Tuck it under your chin and fasten it tight. Put on my glory. Dust off the world and put Me on. Come be forever transformed in My Presence. Be made radiant and shine forever.”

Revival is coming to a spot near you! Make sure you follow the blazing presence of the Lord. Get ready for massive influx of revelation as His people gather to be in his flame. Find the spot that the Lord sets you in and stay there. Enjoy the buffet that He has laid out for you. Taste and see that the Lord is good!

The King is Come.

Many, many blessings in this season of revival!

The spirit of Offense and How to Get Delivered

OFFENSE and HOW to Get Delivered!

This is a hard and messy word about Offense, but it must be taught. It is nasty. It sneaks up on us, attaches itself to us and then spreads like a virus onto others. It is a tactic of the enemy for these last days to keep us from unity. But God! He wants us to get cleaned up. He recently told me that offense is the cork in the wine bottle and He wants His people uncorked in this hour.

How to know if you are offended:

1- You get an icky feeling in your stomach (spirit) when you think about someone or

2- You get mad when you think of them or

3- you don’t want to be anywhere near where they are or conversely,

4- you are upset that they are not friends with you anymore (ex: they are friends with your friends but not you now; they go places without you, etc., etc.) akin to jealousy, but being offended makes you mad and judgmental.

The spirit of offense will either make you want to run and hide or verbally slanderous, maybe even vicious.

Getting Delivered STEP ONE:

Offense is a spirit, ie, spirit of the world, spirit of jealousy, familiar spirit, lying spirit, perverse spirit and so on. Generally speaking, the spirit IS what it is named – obviously Legion is not. Regardless, offense is a spirit, so we can deal with it in the same manner as any other spirit.

When dealing with spirits, understand and remember that we have total authority over them. Jesus said in Luke 10:19-20, “Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you. 20 Nevertheless, do not rejoice at this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are enrolled in heaven.

Also in Luke 7:7-9, “But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 8For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell one to go, and he goes; and another to come, and he comes. I tell my servant to do something, and he does it. 9When Jesus heard this, He marveled at the centurion,” (because the centurion understood heaven’s chain of command and how authority operates in the Kingdom!) So all you have to do is “speak a word” in faith and belief and all of heaven jumps at your command. That’s powerful!

Getting Delivered STEP TWO:

Once you realize that Offense is a spirit, you are most of the way to home plate. So, here are the steps:

  • Repent to God for getting into agreement with it;
  • Command it to leave you NOW;
  • Ask Holy Spirit to come into those places in your soul that offense previously occupied
  • Ask Him to fill you up.

Getting Delivered STEP THREE:

NOW comes the hard part:

A) repent to everyone that Holy Spirit puts in front of you to repent to, verbally or in writing; and

B) repent to those that YOU are offended with.

This one is really hard, because they may not even know that you are offended. They may ask you what you were offended by. Be ready to tell them. Ask for their forgiveness, whether it’s A or B. If they are unwilling, love them anyway. Repent anyway. It’s not about them, it’s about you and God.

Don’t be surprised to find out that you have offended MANY more people than you thought you did! Once you start down this trail the Holy Spirit will leave no stone unturned…in fact, it may seem as though offended people are crawling out from under every rock.  But don’t go hide under the rocks that they just crawled out from under. Keep at it. It will eventually end, and your wine will flow because you are uncorked!

THEN, once you have repented, work to not be offended – or offensive – again. If you find yourself getting offended, repent again. Keep yourself on a short leash.

Most of these things we must learn first-hand. Unfortunately, with offense, we are usually the last to know that we are offended, and offensive as a result. But once we have learned this valuable lesson, it is difficult to forget! We are quick to repent and ask for forgiveness once we have cleaned up our messy trail.

Many blessings to you as you clean up behind yourself! Just remember, you are not in this alone! Holy Spirit will help you every step of the way! Ask Him – He is your Paraclete, the Comforter and the Helper.

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.
