STEP OUT – FLOW WITH IT!

March 13, 2020

The Lord gave me a Word for 2020  about the “harvest” for this time.  He showed me that He would be moving in “suddenlies” and “microbursts” from heaven and He will allow us to walk in them if we will be willing and obedient!!     For example – just yesterday, I simply drove by a bus stop and saw two young ladies waiting for the bus.  I kept driving – but the Holy Spirit would not let me go.  Long story short – I turned the car around and got out and approached them.  I simply opened with – hi ladies how are you doing?  My name is Jean and I have to tell you, I was driving by and I felt the Lord so strongly tell me to come back over here and let you know that “He loves you , knows your name, and He is thinking about you so strongly right now”……  then I just let the conversation flow…..and before long they were pouring out their stories –  one lady had recently lost her 21 year old son – can you imagine her pain????  Jesus knew – the other one had been getting bullyed at work…..  she needed to know Jesus cared.  My stopping “showed them Jesus was thinking about them”.  They happened to both be Christians that were really “under the darkness of depression”.   But God’s presence surrounded us.  I gave them messages and scriptures, prayer and lots of love. Simply speaking LIFE to them and HOPE.  The second one grabbed me and hugged me and held on so tight.  I felt God flowing so freely through that encounter with them.  Peace was tangible.  And when I had to leave – (the bus was coming)  those precious sisters had hope and light in their eyes.  AND JOY!!!  Simply put – we had church in the bus stop waiting booth!!!  The anointing was as strong and God as present as any “revival” meeting I’ve ever been to!!!  I encourage you –  take Him to the streets.   God is in you where ever you are.  Just Step Out!!!   Below are a few helpful hints.  I’ve been doing this since 1980 – and friends –  this feels like the outpouring of that time – but better, because Jesus Christ gets the glory.  It’s just you and me to do the job and we don’t need a platform or a TV camera.  We are doing this for an audience of ONE.  IT’s the last hour my friends , and we must bear fruit while we can!!!  YOU CAN DO THIS!!  CHRIST IN YOU THE HOPE OF GLORY.     I Hope this practical advice helps…..  HOW TO HAVE A LIFESTYLE OF OUTREACH…..

  1. We must simply be “aware” that He intends to use us to reach the lost – right in our own surrounding areas.
  2. When we go out – to the store, gas station, for a walk, doctor’s office – anywhere.  We must be spiritually aware and looking for God to point out a divine appointment.
  3. We must have faith that the Holy Spirit and the angels of God have gone before us to set this up.
  4. When we feel that “tug” in our spirits – we must obey it.  Many times there will be dozens of people around in a store or parking lot – BUT my eyes will fall on one particular person and my spirit reacts – or I’ll sense the Holy Spirit saying  “that one”.  “That’s the Divine appointment now”
  5. At that moment I MUST obey.  Step over my flesh and take a risk.  I don’t have a “canned” speech.  Which I like.  But simply walk up and say something like  “Hello, my name is Jean, and I just really felt like God wanted me to come over here and tell you that He loves you so much and He knows what you are going through.  OR  “He sees you”  “He knows what you need”  or whatever seems to come out of my mouth.  I trust Him to fill it.
  6. Let it flow…..  after the first hello and statement – it usually takes on a life of it’s own.  “Is there anything I can pray for you about?”  Sometimes they are shy and say no.  But you just leave them with a prophetic awareness that God Himself is aware of them.  Other times – and more often than you can imagine – they burst into tears – or tell me that they are having such a hard time right now – to which I listen, and empathize and most of them let me pray on the spot.
  7. Each one is a beautiful piece of artwork.  Look deeply and feel God’s love for each one.  Speak life over them, hope over them, scriptures will come up.  Speak and prophesy over them if it comes up.
  8. Be sensitive to the moment.  Sometimes its a few minutes (I like bus stops and grocery store parking lots)  to plant some powerful words before they have to go.  But let me assure you – God will show up if you will just step out.
  9. TAKE A CHANCE.  Remember – some sow, some water, some reap –  anything you say is gonna bring their attention to God – their thoughts to God – even if its just brief –  when you leave them – the Holy Spirit stays and continues to complete what He began.
  10. My advice – just do it!!!  I have “bumbled” my way through so many “opening” statements – and God makes it work.  Don’t be afraid to let them know that God Himself has pointed them out to you!!  I often say – there are a dozen people in this parking lot and God pointed YOU out to me to come and tell you He loves you and He knows your name, and He is waiting to talk to you……   Some times I get to pray with them – sometimes it is just sowing seeds—-But remember who you are working with — the God that created them and loves them with His whole life, death and resurrection.  The person in front of you was and is worth all of that to Jesus.
  11. This is the year of the “Microburst”  2020     which the Lord defined to me as a sudden manifestation of God in the places you go.  Take Him to the streets my friends.  He is with you where ever you go.
  12. P.s.   I like to have salvation tracts to give them that explain how to be born again – just in case I don’t have time to explain – or it is a quick encounter.
  13. Don’t be afraid to PRAY for healing!  God has healed many people on the spot.  You can even ask them if they need prayer.  Don’t be afraid to flow in the gifts of the Spirit – like word of knowledge.  It blows them away when you know something about them that only God could have told you!!   ALWAYS SPEAK LIFE.  LOVE. PURPOSE to them.  They are starving for it!  What may seem simple and obvious to you – may be like a spring of living water to them.
  14. When you walk away from the encounter – trust God – you did well, because you gave the Holy Spirit something to work with in their lives.  IGNORE AND RESIST the devil , because he will try to convince you you missed it, or did a bad job.  Blow him off and do it again and again.  From now on.  Everywhere you go –  simply ask – Lord – is there a Divine appointment here?   Let the RAIN  fall on us Lord.  The former and latter rain –  with signs and wonders following
  15. People are scared out there.  Unloved.  And broken.  YOU HAVE SO MUCH TO GIVE THEM.  YOU HAVE THEIR CREATOR INSIDE OF YOU –   BE HIS MESSANGER TO A WOUNDED AND DYING WORLD – AND WATCH GOD FALL IN POWER WHEREVER YOU STEP OUT AND OPEN YOUR MOUTH.  Godspeed!!

Your sister in Christ,  Jean

THIS IS THE HOUR OF THE 10 VIRGINS – RIGHT BEFORE THE RETURN OF CHRIST

THIS IS THE HOUR WHERE YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN OIL.

Read again this important parable that the Lord Himself gave to us concerning the days just prior to His return:

Matthew 25:1-13

The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins

“Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.  Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them,  but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.  But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.

“And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’  Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps.  And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’  But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’  And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.

 “Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’  But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’

“Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.”

Notice that Jesus said…..”I do not know you.”   These five foolish virgins had a lamp.  They were expecting the coming of the bridegroom.  They were hanging around the wise virgins.  But they did not have something the others did.  You see – NO ONE ELSE CAN GIVE YOU A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS!  They can lead you to it, tell you how to get one, instruct you how to have oil…..  but they can’t give you a relationship with the Master.  You have to get that all by yourself.  It is personal.  DON’T DELAY IN DEVELOPING YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS IN PRAYER, TALKING TO HIM, AND STUDYING THE WORD.  MEDITATE ON IT.  PUT IT IN YOU. PRAY IN FAITH BELIEVING THAT HE HEARS YOU AND WILL PREPARE YOU.

For the wise virgins …..strengthen yourselves and realize that you cannot do this for others.  You need to stop enabling those around you by doing the spiritual work for them. Help them by praying for them and pointing them into a relationship development of their own.  If you do not they will drain your lamp of oil and wear you out.  God does not expect or desire you to do that.  Your eyes are to be on the coming bridegroom.  Instruct others – but continue to face the door of the coming of your Savior.

The hour is late.  Strengthen what remains.  Do not enable others to be lazy in their walk with God. You are big hearted people, but some have taken advantage of your love and grace just as they do to God.  Pray always for mercy on those God has placed in our lives,  but cast your care on God.  Pray that God will open their eyes to their own need to seek God with all Their Hearts!!!

Rest in God and stay vigilant in His Word and prayer.  You will need all the oil you’ve gotten, through relationship with Him, knowledge of His Word, and being filled with the Holy Spirt, and obedience…. to walk in these last days, overcome,  and give Him glory.  Remember:   “If God is for us who can be against us….”

It’s not too late to get things right between you and God.  Seek and you shall find.  Seek Him with all your heart, fill your heart and soul,  and let your light shine.

God bless and shalom

Romans 7:24   “O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.”

Even the great Apostle Paul struggled with his flesh….we have to take up our crosses DAILY  and crucify the flesh and the lies of the enemy that try to defeat us.

God is for us!!  Every day we are in a battle – like lambs to the slaughter….but thank God that we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus.  We get up –  ask forgiveness and know that each new day is a gift. You are a child of God and God doesn’t walk out on His children….He keeps helping them grow.  

So when Satan comes with condemnation – even if you blew it in an area.  Repent – and enjoy the forgiveness and fellowship bought and paid for by Christ.  Don’t let the devil steal your joy.  The Bible says:   “ His mercies are new every morning, great is thy faithfulness”   God’s grace and power is there to help you overcome sin and the flesh and the devil.   Don’t give up.  There is a crown awaiting overcomers and we are overcomers as long as we don’t quit.

Remember you were chosen to be alive at this time.  God has a plan to use you for His glory and He can’t wait to reward you.  He is a good Father.   I know we don’t do it for the reward….nevertheless He spoke and wrote it because it was important to Him that we know this.  The Bible teaches we will all throw our crowns at Jesus feet because He is so worthy.  He did for us what we could not ever do for ourselves and freely gave it to us!!  The ability to become the sons and daughters of God and part of His family forever.

If you get time read Romans 8 again.  It is packed with so much!

Love you all!!!  I am cheering you on in Christ and praying for you!!  I can see the beauty in you!! I can see you as the bride of Christ dancing before Him in the beauty of holiness. 

(Don’t cringe at that!  lol  I know you see all the sins you’ve lived in and don’t see how – one day at a time, one battle at a time.  I remember well the battles in the beginning! Keep going!!!!  There is special honor for end time believers that don’t give up and endure till the end!!  You’ll never be perfect….that’s not your goal…..to follow Jesus and His Word as best as you can and stay close to Him.  Never get caught up in the “doing”  ahead of just “being” with Him .  It’s out of relationship that change happens !!)   Many will be purified by these times – so stay close to Him and discover His peace that dwells deep inside of you no matter what happens in the world.  

“Not by might, not by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord.”   Zechariah 4

As we lean on Jesus……

Romans 8:31  If God is for us, Who can be against us.

Much love and prayers

SPIRIT, SOUL, AND BODY

December 22, 2019

The apostle Paul reveals this to us when he wrote…..1 Thessalonians 5:23     “Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

  1. Man is a spirit  (the part of us that gets born again when we accept Jesus as our Lord, the part of us that connects to God). 
  2. We have a soul  ( our mind, our will, and our emotions)

3.  We live in a body  ( the apostle Peter called his body his “tent” that housed his spirit and soul  2 Peter 1:13-15)

Our spirit can be born again when we believe – but our soul – mind, will and emotions – can still be ALL MESSED UP.  Honestly that is most of our situations.  Many people give up on a life with Christ because they don’t understand this simple truth.  Our spirits are instantly changed when we repent for our sins and accept Jesus as our Savior – but our souls may be very damaged from things we have been through.  God understands this and has great compassion on us.  He will never leave your or walk away from you as you are in your growing process.  It takes a long time to grow, heal and change our souls.  God is patient and He will help and heal us.  (but we must humble ourselves, admit the hurt/problem and ask for help)  

Our souls can be sick and hurt just as bad as our bodies.  And this is something we must work through with God and His word.  But the FREEDOM that comes from our souls being set free in each area is awesome and worth every minute we spend on it.

The scriptures have all the answers we need as it is a living book given to us by our Creator.  Who knows you better than the One who designed you and created you?  But why am I so messed up and wounded inside?  John 10:10 tells us that  “Satan comes to steal, kill, and destroy.” And he is ruthless.  But God comes to give us life and that in abundance.  (love, joy, peace, goodness, patience, kindness, gentleness, self-control, faithfulness).   

So the question that God is asking you – “Will you come with Me on a journey of honesty and truth and let Me set you free?”   Sometimes we get daggers in our souls that only God can heal.  Sometimes freedom comes by acknowledging to God that what happened really hurt us and asking God to help us to forgive someone that did the hurting. (not condoning what they did – just releasing it to God and getting free from it’s damage)

Freedom awaits you – if you will look inside – honestly – and go on this “journey to the center of your soul”  with the One who loves you and wants to see you free and lift the burdens from you.

John 8:36

“Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

Believe and Receive.  Jesus calls you friend.  John 15:13

“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.”

My prayer is that you will let Him be your friend and do for you what no one else (or yourself) can do for you.  You are loved.

With the holidays almost here, just a little encouragement to keep you from the trappings of perfectionism.  The definition of perfectionism is ‘refusal to accept any standard short of perfection”.   It can drive you mad!!  It is actually your own perception that drives how you view perfect.  It may come from upbringing, teaching, or your own ideas.  If we look at it, what drives it is ,I believe,  from the root of pride.  Or wanting to please or be perceived as perfect. Sometimes we don’t even see it at work in our lives and inner thoughts.  It can simply be ingrained in us by the world. 

It is a sad way to live because it is often in imperfections that something is made unique and beautiful.  We were never made to be cookie cutter humans.  Just look at our finger prints.  God gave us each one that is like no other.  Or like snowflakes or the grain of wood.  You get all that, so I will make another point.

Personally, it was my upbringing that imprinted this deep into my psyche .  It was sad as I watched my mother try to live up to her own self imposed image.  Perhaps it came from her upbringing too.  At any rate I promised myself I would try to live an authentic life and I am probably more vulnerable and open than most.  But I still have those lingering subconscious pressures I have to fight against.  

I have to work at it.  Catch myself tensing up and even more if  someone begins pointing things out.  I have to look within and regain my peace and commitment to be kind to myself and realistic about my limitations  Personally my health doesn’t permit me to do “all things”, maybe for you it is your job, energy level, finances.  These things are real and I think God wants us to have true mercy for ourselves.  A perfectionistic spirit is not realistic. It is subtly tormenting.  We can choose to be realistic and give ourselves a break.   

As a believer and follower of Christ, I also know that the enemy of our souls (the devil)  is an accuser and loves to get us to condemn ourselves.

Fortunately my family is mostly used to my imperfections and limitations.  My family is small though, yours may not be and you may have some pretty big criticizers in your midst this holiday.  I encourage you and remind you that God the Father knew we could not reach perfection or righteousness on our own so He sent His Son who was strong enough to never sin and destroyed sin on the cross for us!!  What a gift.  We are covered as we accept what He did and we try to walk in His ways – imperfectly.

So give yourself a break, determine now to reject any petty criticisms about your home, cooking, anything at all.  Protect your soul.  No criticisms allowed.  And know that you are okay and that this is a day to focus on more cherished things like….love, joy, peace, gentleness, kindness, patience/long suffering , faithfulness…  let these things be in your mind and heart.

Enjoy the many things about the holidays that are special to you.

You are loved. You are beautiful.  If someone else can’t see that…..it is their issue.  Let it fall off.  Protect your soul and know quietly inside that you are are a blessing.  Period.  

Much love and have a great day!

STUCK

November 26, 2019

When I was first saved, it was easy to worship God and bask in His forgiveness.  My life was such a contrast before and after being born again.  A transformation took place and I was very aware of my sins.  Then began the difficult but rewarding journey of sanctification as I began to resist and get rid of my sinful and worldly habits.  

I remember so distinctly the first time I “messed up”.  I had laid down smoking pot and alcohol, but when I traveled to my hometown and went to see my old friends – straight up – I fell.  I blew my witness and I was so angry at myself.  I knew Satan was laughing and mocking God as well.  

I drove to the parking lot of a church and sat there crying.  Beating myself up.  Others lives were at stake too.  My witness was important to God and the kingdom because many were watching me to see if this was real.  Nevertheless – I blew it.  I knew it.  I could not forgive myself.

It was raining and night time as I sat in the car.  Then I felt like the Lord was upset with me.  I had’t felt it before.  He was actually more upset that I was “flogging” myself than He was of the sin I had committed.  As I looked up through teary eyes – I saw what looked like three crosses.  I don’t know if it was a vision or glare from my tears – but then I heard the voice of the Lord inside my heart (John 10:27) – stern and a bit agitated at me.  He said, as I looked at the crosses, “I did this, so you don’t have to do that.”

I wanted to “beat” myself up for being so stupid and blowing my witness, but God only wanted me to repent, forgive myself and move forward.  I was only damaging myself with my “self hate”.   And He did not want that for me.

I have struggled with that during my life.  I hate to miss the mark or sin against God in disobedience and I KNOW how much I deserve punishment.  I hate the flippant way people just trample on God’s grace and I don’t want to be that kind of a person.  Neither does God want us to be.  But sometimes we just can’t fix things and that is how it is.  I could not go and undo my actions.  All I could do was keep walking with God and pray that my old friends would still see that Jesus was in my life and that He would be glorified.  

It is important that we feel remorse.  If we don’t feel remorse for sin there is something wrong with our relationship with God.  He feels our sin.  It hurts and grieves Him, which is why we need to deal with it.  It is not good to let anything come between you and another person or the relationship can be lost.  Same with God – we can slowly become lukewarm when we blow off feeling bad for sins and repenting.

The easiest way to do so is to remember that God doesn’t want us to be stuck in the “feeling bad” place, though it’s important to make sure we still “feel”!  He wants us to give it to Him, ask Him to help us not do it again, and keep walking with Him.  Sometimes we have to have faith that God will fix what we did too.  I have often missed opportunities to witness to someone and had to ask God to bring another person across their path to take care of what I missed.  

May God help us to stay “sensitized” to His Holy Spirit.  Awake to a vibrant and good relationship with Him.  Knowing that He is “for us and not against us”  (Rom. 8:31)

Our life with God is meant to be rich and fruitful, full of adventure.  I pray we are not robbed of that by getting stuck in one place or another!   God bless you abundantly and have a great day.
