Words to Heal By – Blog “Release”

Think I’ll write a statement of warning and “release” here.  This blog will not always be uplifting and positive. 

It was a challenge from a dear friend to start one and for me ~ it’s a project, a way to learn new technology, an experiment, a start to begin to write again after shutting down for nearly 10 years; and a means to continue to heal.

Writing, journaling, has always been a means of healing for me.  Haven’t quite transferred over to the “teacher” only part of me, or the PROPHET only, or Moma only, or the Bride of Christ or Passionate Pastor only – all parts of me… loving and caring yes.

Outraged at times, at the way we hurt one another and the wrongs done in the world – most definitely.   Feel the need to address those wrongs at times (hence the Pharisee article).  But you know, I can say things face-to-face too.  I’ve learned if I process these “confrontations” first – away… then once we get face-to-face, I can be more led by Holy Spirit, gentler, more tender and brutally but lovingly honest.   Confrontation is NOT good with me, if you’ve deeply wounded me or mine, or those I am called to love and cover; or if you have a past history of being an abuser of same.  It WON’T ever be pretty.  It may bring TRUTH and light into your darkness.  (oh, and you’re welcome to do the same with me… with courage and in Christ’s love – of course! LOL).

Okay – you’ve been warned… READ my blogs AT YOUR OWN RISK!  Some WILL be humorous (okay to me)… it’s a toss up… and after all, just a tender place – a creative outlet.

While I love the Lord, the Word of God, positive ministry websites, humor (and those sites too)… The Pioneer Woman (and all her interests)… this is ME.  :-)  You are most welcome to comment… OR to hit the delete button.  LOL

HUGS,

~Debra

 

Operating in the Holy Spirit – or are we?

Operating in the Holy Spirit – or are we?

In learning to battle against generational, family strongholds – a very useful book recommended by Elijah List and one of my pastors is Breaking the Threefold Demonic Cord — by Sandie Freed

  • Price: $13.99 on ElijahList.com about How to Discern and Defeat the Lies of Jezebel, Athaliah and Delilah. I find it excellent, insightful and detailed – and realized some of these things I’ve been battling for over 20 years now. Get it.
  • Jezebel aka Queen of Heaven aka under Baal, wrongful rule over God’s people, wickedness; Athaliah, comes after the next generation, against the young but the rightful king who had to be hid & protected, Delilah – for every woman to read how NOT to be… specifically a book for ALL to read. Current insight for Body of Christ.  Holy Spirit actually told me to get it and read it; and then confirmed that word to me again and again, through posts on Elijah List and then through my pastor.  I obeyed!
  • Daughters in the Lord
  • We want pure hearts to worship our King Jesus, and in the right manner – free from ALL idolatry. In humility, we read Who and Whose we are; we also need to study how to come out from under wrong influences, and present ourselves to Him for cleansing, for His bride is going to be spotless and without stain or wrinkle. Study to “show thyself approved.” This book is a recommended read for every woman I know.  Men and women can operate in these spirits, but they are “deceiving spirits” (every unclean spirit is).  How to recognize real and counterfeit.  Excellent and very clear, with great insight on what is coming against our following generations (Athaliah is a very specific spirit sent to destroy the destiny of following generations), how to get free yourself, and knowledge is power, with which you can help others get free…without which we are destroyed.

For EVERY WOMAN IN MINISTRY, for every pastor that ministers to women, for every wife and mother and woman whose husband is also called to lead, this one is an excellent resource – hands down.  This simple $14.00 book is an investment for a lifetime, and for your future generations, so you’ll know how to pray. ~HUGS~ All my love, Debra

      • One more thought – Momas of Prophetic Children – Jezebel ALWAYS comes against the prophetic children in the family; along with Athaliah – to try to destroy generational destinies.  The Jezebel spirit intends to “kill” the prophetic, shut it… down any way it can.  It can happen in a church, or in any other setting, including families.  As praying Moma’s of children that can and do hear God, you need to know what to be alert for.  Jezebel promised to KILL Elijah… I’ve battled this spirit personally, and it comes up in several settings – Queen of Heaven is NOT Mary, it is a demonic principality that wants worship and wants to rule.  Stay alert, stay alive.  Be wise, and pray in the spirit and with understanding.
      • Love, ~ Deb
