While Jesus was saying these things, one of the women in the crowd raised her voice and said to Him, “Blessed is the womb that bore You and the breasts at which You nursed.” But He said, “Rather, indeed blessed are those who hear the Word of God and keep it.” Luke 11:27-28.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
Living in the Light means hearing (with attention), speaking, and doing My Word. All done in faith, and the spirit of faith is that you believe in your heart and speak with your mouth that which you believe in your heart.
And Jesus answered saying to them, “Have faith in God. Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him. Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you. Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone.” Mark 11:22-25.
You see the process of changing impossible situations (moving mountains) and receiving the good result you want from Me, all begins with faith in Me. And just as with anyone, you can only have faith in a person if what they speak is truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I have no darkness in Me, everything that comes from Me is good and open to the Light. The revelation of My Word gives Light, and the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth. You can speak and do My Word and know the truth will always prevail over lies. And My Son told you that the devil is a liar and a murderer from the beginning and when he speaks he can only lie because that is his character. It is not the way I made him but he became this by his choice. He was perfect, be careful lest the beauty I give you turn you away from Me to focus only on yourself and your own glory. This has led many astray and estranged them from Me. That was not My Will, I am always seeking ways to bring you back into the beauty of My love and the relationship with Me that is eternal life.
You had the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering: the ruby, the topaz and the diamond; the beryl, the onyx and the jasper; the lapis lazuli, the turquoise and the emerald; and the gold, the workmanship of your tambourines and flutes, was in you. On the day that you were created, they were prepared. You were the anointed cherub who guards and covers, and I placed you there. You were on the holy mountain of God; you walked in the midst of the stones of fire. You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created until unrighteousness was found in you. By the abundance of your trade you were internally filled with violence, and you sinned; therefore I have cast you as profane from the mountain of God. And I have destroyed you, O guardian cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor. I cast you to the ground. Ezekiel 28:12-17.
So you see from this that the devil was once the anointed cherub of perfection who I placed in Eden to be the guardian angel of the man and woman I had created. And the heavenly music was within him. He was blameless, the star of the morning, but he became resentful of the man and woman and too proud to serve Me by serving them. I had created mankind like Me, in My image and according to My likeness, and I had given them rule over the works of My hands, dominion upon the earth. Angels are ministering spirits serving those who are heirs of salvation. He wanted to take that dominion and the throne that I had prepared for the Son of Man.
“How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, you who have weakened the nations! But you said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit on the mount of assembly in the recesses of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’” Isaiah 14:12-14.
He wanted what man had so he took it from him by taking the man captive to do the devil’s will by tempting him with what the devil was after, to take My place of authority and be like Me. But what the man and woman did not understand was they already had My authority and were in My image. They lost that by submitting to a new master, they corrupted the seed of My Word of truth with lies, and became fallen like the angel they gave their dominion authority to, and you have the same ultimate destiny as your master. It was thus that death, sickness, pain, birth defects, sweat, and torment entered the earth by the corrupted seed. But through Jesus, as Son of Man, you are restored to your position of authority again in Him and in the authority and power of His Name, which I have given to you that you may be saved. He brings you back from death to life when you are born again of My Word, which is incorruptible seed.
For you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God. For, “All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls off, but the Word of the Lord endures forever.” And this is the word which was preached to you. 1Peter 1:23-25.
And you get all this and the power to undo the works of the devil only one way: by faith. Faith in Me, which is faith in My Word and trust in Me that I will perform, and have performed, all that I promise. But above all to know Me and My Son, and our unfathomable love which will go to any length, height, or depth to save you, reconcile you, heal you, prosper you, restore you to a position better than you had before and to bless you abundantly.
And even before Jesus actually came to earth and died to satisfy the debt of an eternal life you owed to Me, I offered those who would connect with Me by faith the beauty of entering covenant with Me so that I could again have authority to protect and bless them with every good thing given and every perfect gift, the entrustment of My Word, which is your life, your healing, and your guide, for them to put in their hearts and speak, and My Covenant Names, which gave them the benefits as promises sealed in My Name. And I gave them the shadow by sacrifice of the Lamb that would take away the sins of the world, whereby their sins were covered until the payment was made by the true and only Lamb that could take away sin as if it never been.
And how do you get this mountain moving and grace receiving faith in your heart? By hearing and hearing My Word, and seeing the revelation of Christ in My Word. For that is the anointing that destroys the yoke of the slavery to sin and lifts the burden of torment, fear, agitation, and doubt that the devil has placed on you since man first sinned and hid from Me in fear.
But once you get your heart filled with faith, you must release it by your mouth and act upon it to be a doer of what you hear or you will never gather the reward.
Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls. But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves . . . But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does. James 1:21-25.
Faith without works is dead faith, it never obtains the promise because it won’t go gather it. It believes but never acts, never speaks, never does. I call that sluggish.
And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:11-12.
I tell you to look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet I feed them. But consider a moment how I feed them. I fill the earth with seed, but the birds have to go gather it to eat it. If they never go out to get it they will starve though the benefit is there.
They all wait for You to give them their food in due season. You give to them, they gather it up;
You open Your hand, they are satisfied with good. Psalm 104:26-27.
The same was true with the Manna. I provided My people with bread from Heaven freely but I did not drop it in their cooking pots, they had to go in faith to gather it and partake of it every day except Shabbat, but I gave them a double portion the day before. I provide for My plan for your life. You do not need to be hoarding things to have provision, give and I give unto you. This is especially true with tithing and offerings.
A mother nurses her baby but the baby must attach and suck.
I made the water into wine at the wedding feast in Cana but the waiters had to have faith and obey Jesus to fill the pots with water or there would have been no wine. Mary understood these things because that was the way she lived her life, she treasured My Word in her heart, spoke it, and obeyed it immediately with love, rejoicing, and appreciation for all the mighty things I was doing for her and in her. Her response was thanksgiving, rejoicing, and praising and she did it in song. Luke 1:46-55. She had no fear. She knew Me and Jesus better than anyone else ever has and it gave her confidence in everything. Not just because she was His mother according to the flesh but because she remained humble in so great an honor and always obeyed My Word.
While Jesus was saying these things, one of the women in the crowd raised her voice and said to Him, “Blessed is the womb that bore You and the breasts at which You nursed.” But He said, “Rather, blessed are those who hear the Word of God and keep it.” Luke 11:27-28.
I gave Solomon more wisdom and riches than any other up until Jesus, but it turned his heart away from Me in his later years. And what did that do to him? Killed his joy and made all things look like vanity to him. Without Me, life has no meaning, with Me it is a fascinating, victorious, and amazing love affair with Love Himself. A love that is nothing like an earthly love. Divine heavenly love makes the recipient stronger, perfect, radiant with My splendor, and clothed in the garments of Salvation and the robe of righteousness. I beautify the afflicted with Salvation. And that is My doing because of My great love for you whom I created in My image and according to My likeness that you would rule and reign with Me as My royal family forever. Revelation 22:5. I am your source, I am your head, and a body without a head goes nowhere.
If you are wise you will listen to and obey My Word for this is to your benefit because I watch over My Word to perform it. Your part is faith that connects with Me, and faith hears, faith speaks, faith acts and faith takes. My part is the power and the accomplishment of the miracle through your faith connection. Faith will go to any length to receive, like the paralyzed man on the stretcher. He did not wait at home for things to plop in his lap, he got in agreement with his faith friends and did not let a crowded house stop him. They got him up on the roof and let him down by removing the tiles and lowering him down right at the feet of Jesus. And I tell you that Jesus saw their faith and knew the connection for the healing power to flow and do its work had been established. And Jesus both assured the crippled man that his sins were forgiven and healed him. You have to know that before you can open your heart with no hindrance to healing. Self-condemnation will block My healing from getting access into you.
If only you could see, how blest your life can be, if you only keep My Word, you will never be disturbed, for in My Word there’s light, grace and peace, and all delight. In Me, you will never go astray, you will walk the holy highway. And that is high above in the Light, and the devil cannot get up there. He is stuck in the dirt. But you are not. Whom the Son sets free is free indeed. In Him you are a new creation. Metamorphosis.
I love you. Forget the darkness, that is behind you and dispelled by My Light. Walk in the light so you may live the life I always planned for you from the start. And it comes only by hearing, trusting, saying, and doing My Word. Walk wisely and redeem the time. Jesus is coming soon. Be busy in the Light.
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and does them, will be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.” Matthew 7:24-27.
