Harvest Roundup ’21, Part 3
As we continue combining scriptures from the pre-fall Messages and early Fall we move to an explanation on preparing to receive the engrafted Word, and we can thus use the Word to examine our hearts for idol inhabitation.
We come to Ezekiel 14:1-3 where some of the elders of Israel came to the prophet Ezekiel to get a Word from the Lord. God Almighty revealed to the Prophet that they came with their idols in their hearts. Now there is definitely a warning in there for us today. We may not outwardly worship a statuette, but what is occupying the throne of our hearts, what has replaced Jesus, Adonai, as Master?
We begin to solve that conundrum with an examination of the definition of heart. It is defined as the center of man, the real person. That is what God looks on as he scans the hard drive of our lives—what is stored in the heart, what is propelling our thoughts, ideas, words and actions. Jesus would say: from the issue of the heart, the mouth speaks. He also explained the things that come forth from the heart that defile us. If we have not taken the Word and cleansed our hearts, purified them with the fire of God’s Word, and sterilized them with the blood of Jesus, even as believers they are still defiled with the nature from the previous spiritual parent.
When we start the heart cleansing process, we realize that hidden toxic energy is still residing in the area of soul/spirit/heart connection, the place where all thoughts reside, and memories are stored there. “How then can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your Word. With my whole heart I have sought you; Oh let me not wander from your commandments!” Ps 119: 9-10. Isaiah 29:13: We will begin with verse 11, where the literate represents the leaders of Israel; they were blind, drunk (in a supernatural stupor), and in a deep sleep. Verse 13, with their mouths they spoke the right things, but their inner nature (hearts) were far from God. Now return to Ezekiel 14. The leaders were blind, receiving no wisdom or instruction from the Lord because of the contents of their hearts.
Jehovah is Peace: September 12, 2021.
Continues on the revelation of God’s peace and our need for it active and operating in our hearts.
God is not the author of chaos, quarreling, anxiety, fear, doubt, etc. Those remained from the previous spiritual parent. They are part of what is taking up space in our hearts.
Listen and be blessed, choose a quiet place and permit the Word to flow. We are cleansed by the washing of water of the Word. Peace
Listen now: The service has been separated into three parts, like a delectable meal prepared specially for you. Be blessed!
Healing and Deliverance
Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
