CENTER YOURSELF IN HIM

Posted in Elsabe's Blog at 8:04 pm by

Sometimes we are at odds with ourselves on the inside while looking at the reason for our unrest on the outside, then pointing fingers to others and blaming our circumstances, while the raving and ranting goes on in the mind and emotions – simply because we are out of touch with our Source.

The refuge of Peace is always found in the center of the hurricane. Find your true self IN GOD and He will still your storm – every time!

UNION WITH HIM IS BLISS!

John 17

Divine perspective

Posted in Elsabe's Blog at 2:22 am by

How you “see” things is always determined by your perspective. The higher your “look-out point”, the clearer you can see and the wider is your horizon.

When you are living in ascension with Christ, seated in heavenly places together with Him, you see through His eyes and there is no “blur” or confusion if you will, but clarity and peace of mind, coupled with divine wisdom and understanding by the Spirit.

How glorious to live and move and have your being in Him, seeing people and situations with His eyes.

And yes, we gain height when we “wait” upon the Lord in worship, then connecting spirit to Spirit……….!

Is.40:31

Identity of the Lamb

Posted in Elsabe's Blog at 3:56 am by

“My strength is made perfect in weakness” (II Cor 12:9)

God’s power manifests when man knows his weakness and relies wholly on the Holy Spirit.

God’s power is perfected through the 7-fold Spirit when man has been delivered of himself and gladly adopted the Lamb-nature, having died, yet living!

Let us lay down the issues of our “self” and come and learn lowliness at the Master’s feet; then glory in our weakness!

HUMILITY IS ANOTHER KEY INTO HIS GLORY! Let’s truly get this ingrafted into our inner man.

Are you wearing the Gospel shoes of peace – clothed in the armor of light?

Are you wearing the Gospel shoes of peace – clothed in the armor of light?

When the same subject keeps coming up, it’s worth taking note of the message that it contains:

Recently I was praying for someone over the phone, who was experiencing a terrible burning in her feet – especially in her heels. She was having anger issues with someone who was trying to manipulate her through emotional strings, but chose to forgive the person and released the emotional attachments. By the Spirit, I took authority over the tormenting spirit that caused the burning in her feet and told her to put on her dancing shoes, trampling on snakes and scorpions (she said it felt exactly like a scorpion sting). She received the revelation from the Lord that her feet were not “covered” in the preparation of the gospel of PEACE and that the enemy had an open door through the contention to attack her.

Another person had a vision from the Lord that she went into a lake and was bitten by a shark in her left foot and it started bleeding. (“Left” speaks of things in the past, as well as your walk with the Lord).

Someone else shared a dream with me, namely that she saw herself dressed in purple, wearing purple shoes, walking into a room where a lot a family and friends were and there was peace and joy.

Interpretation

It will benefit us much to study out our “Kingdom stand” of a righteous walk in the light, which will “armor” us against the attacks of the enemy.

Looking at the feet especially:

“And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace”. (Eph 6: 15)

I now understand even better why the Word consistently advise us to walk in peace, pursue peace, etc., because it keeps us in a place of righteousness, peace and unity, which in turn brings the commanded blessing of life of the Lord. We cannot afford contention or strife,

“For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.”

James 3:16

This can pertain to our current relationship issues, but also to issues relating to our past experiences. If there are open doors of negative issues in our memory and emotions (even through emotional strings of the past) which have not been dealt with through the cross, we can have the proverbial “Achilles heel” – in other words vulnerable places where the enemy can bruise your heel (Gen.3: 15), which speaks of human nature, and where familiar spirits can attach themselves to, bringing oppression. We need to make “peace” with the past and the present issues of contention through true forgiveness and repentance and LET IT GO, pursuing peace with one another, so that we can crush the enemy’s head. And NEVER lift your “heel” against another!

The fallen nature of man is prone to sentiments, undue affections, lusts of the flesh, idolatry, and of course all the fleshly passions which give the enemy something to “grab” onto. The Spirit of divination brings destruction and also WORKS THROUGH FAMILIAR OBJECTS when the affections and the flesh (indulgence in worldly things) are involved, because your will, emotions and reasoning are not detached from it. Many are slaves to their past (like the Israelites couldn’t forget the meat pots of Egypt and kept on murmuring and complaining) and they failed to enter in to God’s Promised Land.

“For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.” – Rom.14: 17

The answer is always Christ, in His death and resurrection. HE IS THE PRINCE OF PEACE!

When man has fully identified himself with being crucified with Christ, having been raised up together with Him in the resurrection power of the Holy Ghost, he will live the ascended life, seated together with Christ in heavenly places, far above all the power of the enemy – exercising Kingdom authority (purple attire in the dream above) – in heading up power and subduing power (Eph 1:20-23).

In the first situation (above) the person was not crucified with Christ in the area of the emotions and had fleshly reactions of anger and bitterness against manipulation and control (witchcraft), therefore prone to tormentors (Matt.18: 21-25, especially v. 34-35). The moment forgiveness and release came, deliverance came! Hallelujah!

In the vision of the second person, the Lord was showing her that her emotional affections and reactions (which in this particular case are linked to control of witchcraft and activated a familiar spirit) are making her vulnerable to attacks of the enemy.

The person in the dream is dressed in purple (royal attire, which speaks of Kingly authority). Wherever you walk into situations (where family or friends are) you will carry the authority to bring peace and joy, when you walk in righteousness (regardless of previous negative issues) with a pure heart.

When we pray the Lord’s prayer, “Father, let Your name be glorified, let Your Kingdom come (righteousness, peace and joy IN THE HOLY GHOST), let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”, we invite the Holy Spirit to have His way to establish the Kingdom through us in Kingly authority and ALSO to speak to us in revelation, visions, dreams, etc to lead us into all truth and to show us our vulnerable areas, so that we can deal with it and crush the head of the enemy. The soul area (mind, will and emotions) have to be totally submitted to the Spirit of the living God in obedience to the Word and blessings will flow in all areas.

May we see the light in His light and receive the grace to deal with every area of our soul life, embracing the cross of Jesus Christ and be raised up in His life of abundance, being seated together with Christ in heavenly places in the ascended life while the enemy is under our feet. Glory to God Almighty!

Spirit or flesh? Light or darkness??

Posted in Elsabe's Blog at 3:13 am by

Jesus is the true light in those who are born again, and we need to make sure that our light SO SHINES (Matt.5:16) that it gives illumination to those around us and bring glory to our Father. If the wick of your candle is too short (insecurity and focus on the needs of self, pity parties, etc.), it will give off a dim light and it it is too long (self-power), it will smoke, causing soot to be released.

It the wick is trimmed (Matt. 25:7) to the right proportion (humility and dependence on the Holy Spirit), it will give off a bright flame that will shine to the glory of the Father, feeding on the oil of the Spirit. Everything depends on the level of oil supply that we have, which speaks of the Holy Spirit. As we are constantly “be being filled with the Spirit”, walking in the Spirit and not in the flesh, our focus and expectancy will be for the Bridegroom’s coming and we will be found in preparation for this glorious day with no concern or worry for the present or the future.

Luke 11:34 “The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.
36 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.”

We are to die to sin, to the flesh and to the things of the world and rise up in the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit to live a life in ascension, and then be glory-carriers in this hour to shine brightly into the darkness of this world – Kingdom ambassadors for His Name’s sake! Jesus did not die for us to live in defeat, but that we can have life and life more abundantly! Hallelujah!

REV. 22:17 “And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”
MATT. 25:13 “Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”

REVELATION IN FELLOWSHIP

Posted in Elsabe's Blog at 1:54 pm by

As we live in continual unbroken fellowship with the Trinity, progressive revelation flows as we LISTEN, MEDITATE, GET IT INTO OUR SPIRIT and DECLARE into being.

Hidden mysteries unfold in the glory as we call on Him, but hidden plans of the enemy also come into the light and the Holy Spirit shows us things to come.

While drinking of the fountain of life, we see the light in His light and we receive enlightened eyes of our understanding in the knowledge of Christ, of the self and of the strategies of darkness.

Therefore, let us work out our own salvation in fear and trembling.

Fellowship-communion with the Trinity

Posted in Elsabe's Blog at 1:30 am by

Often we do not realize that the Holy Spirit is bringing things to our remembrance, which He wants us to meditate on for our sanctification. Fellowship is a place of learning – if we listen more and meditate more on what we hear.

John 16: 26 “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”

The more we acknowledge Him, inviting Him to come into our prayer life and our worship, honoring and appreciating Him for His teachings and reminders, the deeper will be His ministry to us. Let us not skip over the things He is showing us and reminding us of, but lean into it by deep meditation and praying in the Spirit until his teaching becomes part of us. Then we will speak and act out of who we are in Christ, not only from what we have learned.

In this way our fellowship with Him will deepen and the sanctifying work in us will bear remaining fruit.

The application of heavenly wisdom, coming from the Spirit of Wisdom, that flows from above will flow like streams of living waters into the things we deal with every day.

Gal.5:22-24

Mark 4:24-25
