“Do Not Touch My Anointed Ones”


messenger

The vessels hold the anointing

In the Old Testament the Lord used the Thummim and Urim to determine His will. The High Priests were the ones that were the only ones that could read what He had to say.

Moses spent an entire 40 days without food or drink and his face was so radiant in the Lord’s presence that he had to put a veil over it. Yet in his absence from the people of Israel, they had convinced Aaron to make a golden calf. It doesn’t take long for humans to long for the presence of something, anything to worship. For people today, its their money, yachts, houses, etc. For some it is simply their own image. Their good works. Their pride. I’m so good at not being good, that I’m good. We just can’t win. All of us stink and that’s just the plain truth of the matter. Whether rich or poor. We all would have done what the children of Israel did and cast our jewels into the fire to have a nice golden calf to dance around.

Moses came down after all of his fasting and being that close that he had to veil his face and he broke the tablets. Just imagine…he was madder than he**! How could he spend time with the Lord Himself and these selfish ingrates do this???? Well, Moses didn’t realize how rare he was.

Now, here we are again. We are at an extraordinary place in time. Very few realize this because they are dancing around the golden calf again.

The Lord has already sent His anointed into this world. But this changed after the Lord’s resurrection. Remember, He told us that He resurrected so that He could send His spirit which is the anointing. Now the anointing, (the Holy Spirit) lives within the believers. In a greater degree or lesser depending upon how much we are willing to sacrifice. How sanctified we become.

There is no possible way that anyone can live in this world and understand the spiritual aspects of anything surrounding this universe unless they acknowledge God. The Holy Spirit is the one who gives us the knowledge of everything spiritual.

The Lord tells us that “what has its beginning in the flesh, must be completed in the flesh and what has its beginning in the spirit must be completed in the spirit.”

In Ephesians 6:10, we are told that we do not war against flesh and blood, but against spiritual forces of evil in heavenly realms. It speaks of “rulers and authorities, and powers.”

We know as believers that there are spirits that operate within the hierarchy of the rulers of this age and we are to wage spiritual warfare against them through our prayers and fasting. These people have become influenced by them and the Word of God tells us that they have become ensnared by Satan “to do his will.”

If they cannot become free, they will rule over us, and they do not realize this. They are domineering and greedy. They will die in their own sins and this is what the enemy of their souls desires. As long as they do not see that they are in need of a Savior.

Without the Holy Spirit all of the world is lost and the rulers are blind.

Now if you look at the natural, as the Lord reminds us, behind the veil, you will see the spiritual abiding. The demonic realm is always plotting their strategies.

On September 11, 2001, the World Trade Centers were destroyed by evil. A picture of the enemy confronting the Lord. He was sounding the alarm.

If you have spiritual eyes you can see that this set the stage for the destruction of the global economy and the tidal wave that followed. These ruling principalities were giving a sign in the natural of what was going to happen in the spiritual realm

The way back is not mans way. It is only by turning to the Lord. Listen to what the Lord is speaking. “There is a way that seems right to a man, but it leads to death.” He is speaking of spiritual death. We must acknowledge the Lord in all that we do. Our country has turned from God.

Now, the world as we know it, will not come to an end. However, the Lord is going to return for His people.They will be taken out of the world.  When this happens it will signal the beginning of “The time of Jacobs Troubles.”

This is a time of great tribulation for this earth.

People that believe that this earth is going to end, simply do not understand the Lord’s plan for mankind. I would just say this, listen to the ones sent to you. God has sent many messengers.

Only true believers will ever witness this power because it requires faith to exercise this power. The Lord tells us that we “trample scorpions and serpents in His name.” We must know that we have this power and walk in it. Walk into the darkness and you will see the light that you carry. The light shines brightest in the darkness.

“”When they were but few in number, few indeed, and strangers in it, they wandered from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another. He allowed no man to oppress them; for their sake he rebuked kings;

Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm.(1 Chronichles 16:19-22)

Streams In The Desert


We are drawn to the water

We are drawn to the water

This book, Streams In The Desert by L.B. Cowman,is a book that I read almost daily. The Lord always has a word for me in this book.

I have used it over the years and marked in it  many times. It has ministered to me in countless ways and all of the scripture passages are divinely directed for each day.

When I am going through severe tribulation in my life, this book has spoken right into my circumstances. When I am at peace and full of joy, it has spoken to my spirit as well. How does it know? Well, the Holy Spirit knows the heart of all men. Whether a person is submitted to the Lord or not, He has a way of reaching us and speaking in a way that we can understand. He is always with us.

I went out to my mailbox one day last summer, when I was at the peak of my anxiety with my Post Traumatic Stress, and I found a dead iguana. It’s throat had been slit and eyes poked out. I was so alarmed as my ex-husband stood before me with my son; I pulled it out by the tail and said, “See?” I knew that my ex-husband had no idea of the level of spiritual battle I was involved in. I would battle in my prayers and the Lord constantly reminded me that worry and anxiety were not from Him. He gives us peace, and as He says, “perfect peace, unlike the world offers.” I knew I was not experiencing this perfect peace, because the enemy of my soul was bringing out the big guns from his arsenal and I was afraid.

After I threw this iguana in the trash and stopped trying to figure out what person was responsible for this atrocity, I brought the mail into the house.

This is when the Lord spoke to me. “Didn’t I tell you that you trample scorpions and serpents for my name sake? Didn’t I show you as an example that you are the Head not the Tail?” He reminded me of His love for me and “not to be afraid of those who can kill the body, but rather fear the one who can kill both body and soul.

Yes, now I am remembering His words to me, which are the words of Life. I looked down at my mail and right on top was the magazine that I have and it is also a message from the Lord. “Israel, my glory.” This iguana was laying right on top of it. The Lord had spoken to me long ago and told me that I am a picture of Israel to Him and should apply all of the same promises made to her, also to myself. He also reminded me that this was not a coincidence. Satan hates Israel and anyone who bears her name. The one whom the Lord has called and is in covenant is going to be the object of Satan’s hatred.  All believers in Christ, are considered part of this same covenant through Abraham.

He told me that I should remember all of these promises made by Him, my heavenly Father and He will never break them. As I looked at this writing, “Israel My Glory,” I felt as if He had just reached out of heaven and sent me a little love note. Something to remind me that I am “ruling and reigning with Him in heavenly places.” This little fear tactic by the enemy shall have no power over me, but I was reminded by the Lord to pray for anyone that is being used as a servant by these dark spirits. They are the ones that are in great peril.

Yes, I have suffered. Tremendously, however, as I read the passage from today, I saw such an interesting quote by a Roman soldier; When a Roman soldier was told by his  guide that if he insisted on taking a certain journey, it would probably be fatal, he answered, “It is necessary for me to go-it is not necessary for me to live.” (Streams in the Desert. September 10, Special TBN Edition)

The Lord can never use a person that is still holding onto themselves. This soldier showed a perfect example of a life lived for the purpose of his mission, whether his life is lost or not. “Whoever finds his life, will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” How many people have this conviction to follow the path to life? Not many, in fact scripture tells us this.

Check yourself; if you are on the road that speaks, “everyone is doing it.” Believe me, you are on the wide road and many travel on it. It is the road that is very narrow, with few traveling along, that you must find, if you are to attain life eternal. Then all of this suffering and efforts to reach some kind of worldly status, is unimportant. It will pale in comparison to the one who Has called you and the mission He has called you to.

If you are parched from this world and you’ve reached to top, and found, there’s nothing gratifying about any of this, it’s because you were following after the wrong things. Now you have asked, “Is this all there is? Why do I still feel empty?”

You are a desert. Jesus Christ is the Living Water, and once this desert has a drink of this Living Water, you will ” never thirst again.” Take it and drink it. He became a drink offering for all who thirst!”
