1-3-16 – Psalm 34:8 – “O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!”

“LOOK DADDY, IT SPARKLES!!” . . .

the little girl shouted with glee, as she looked out over the water.

Sparkle

 

She finally got to go on the camping trip her Dad had promised her.

Road

 

They had to wait two weeks, because of all the storms in the area, but finally the day came when they packed up the car and took off for their camping adventure.

 

When night time came, they built a campfire so they could toast marshmallows,

Campfire

while listening to the crickets and other night sounds from the lake.  

Her Dad had a surprise for her. . . S’mores . . those gooey sweet, chocolatey, graham cracker treats that brings a smile to every camper’s face.

 

Dad had the chocolate bars and graham crackers hidden inside of a plain brown bag.

Brown bag


When the marshmallows were toasted, Dad opened up the bag, brought out the chocolate bars and graham crackers. A few minutes later?

S'more

A smile of delight as the little girl bit into her very first S’more. . . . “yummmmm!”

 

 

 

 

 

. . . . So too, will we SPARKLE, when we spend time alone with Jesus. . .Yahshua . . . Our Beloved KING.

Adventures await every true believer, who listens to and obeys that still small voice of the Holy Spirit.  Sweet blessings of fellowship, intimacy, joy and wonder are waiting for us, but they may be wrapped up in the plain, everyday events of our lives.

 


AND . . . If we stop . . . take time to seek the LORD through His Written Word . . . we will smile with delight as we discover yet another “first” in the treasures of the Bible.

“O taste and see that the LORD is good;
How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!”

  1. Hello again

    I have to say off the bat like you americans say that i have never been on to experiencing spontaneous joy given by stimuli like you described. Im one to get joy from attaining an achievement and then moving on to next challenge. I guess im not one to become to enraptured by little things although i dont belittle ones who do.
    You are more blessed than me in these things.
    People think me dour and sullen but My wife can testify that once im in the mood im Very joyful.

    But be as it may im not the one to find beauty in a sparkling star in the nightsky but instead i look inyo the wastness of space and behold infinite creative power of God.

    Thats me

      1. O.K…..about this article theme “TASTE AND SEE.”
        Well, J.C., Linda, and maybe some others here (I have Michael SPECIFICALLY in mind— hahaha) would’ve loved one of our Church Meetings related to that.

        Our Pastor had some definite family emergencies during the week so that she didn’t have her regular message ready. Instead she spoke briefly on the seriousness of the times we’re in, but then added a bit about Psalm 34:8. Then she told us that we would be seeing a Youtube interview of a roundtable discussion with Jonathan Cahn, Mark Biltz, and I forget the third guy…..

        Then she asked the ushers to pass something around for all of us. Well, they passed baskets filled with assorted wrapped HERSHEY CHOCOLATES for us to enjoy during the “movie.”
        She wanted us to have the literal “TASTE AND SEE.”

        It’s not a traditional church building, so I guess that lends naturally to non-traditional ways and means.
        It is advertised as “Church NOT as Usual,” and we actually get people coming quite some distance to attend, even from neighboring states. Messages are highly anointed, and I absolutely love going there…. things FLOW in the HOLY SPIRIT!

  3. This doesn’t exactly go with the above article, but it is a word for 2016. I didn’t copy the Scripture that Glynda had below, ’cause I thought the word was long enough)

    SUNDAY, JANUARY 3, 2016 (through Glynda Linkous; wingsofprophecy)
    2016 – A Year of Many Facets

    2016 shall be a year of many facets. Evil arises in unlikely places. It rears its ugly head and strikes at My People, it takes innocent lives. You will also see good rise up and overcome in some areas.

    My Bride has not purified herself enough to overcome yet on a large scale, therefore My Power flowing through her is small at this time, but I have a plan to refine My Bride, to remove the impurities of the world she has allowed to stain her. I will allow the stains to grow and make her sick, until she begs Me to wash her clean. In this way, I will make her white for My arrival.

    My People, I desire in 2016 you would walk holy before Me. I desire you would put away from you that which is unclean, that which I have called an abomination. I desire you would strive for purity now according to My Word, which is your standard in all things.

    Why do you ignore the things I have told you? Why do you allow sin in your midst when I am against it? Do you not know you will be judged for all sin? Why do you allow sin among you? Why do you continue therewith? How can I bless you when this is so? Come away from sin, that I may bless you more abundantly. Show Me your devotion. (I saw He meant by purifying our lives)

    Dangers will increase among My People as each year passes, but you will not always abide in the world, you are Mine. I desire My People would increase in diligence and prudence in 2016. You are not of the world, why do you look and act as though you are? I speak to those among you who follow in the world’s ways – you who have ears to hear truth. Those who are worldly will go as the world goes – they will follow it to destruction, for they are not abiding in Me, nor seeking My Face, and in the end will not know to seek Me to save them. Do not dwell among them, My People. Be ye set apart from these, My Children, for what fellowship has light with darkness? (He means don’t hang out with them, even though we must live here on the Earth for a time) You cannot serve two masters, therefore you must choose. The day is coming soon when these lines (the lines between good and evil) will be very evident, as will which side you truly serve. Do not be found on the side of darkness then, for there will be no remedy for those who are – it leads to eternal damnation.

    Those who refuse still to do My Will will be drawn further into darkness. This is by your own choice – I desire you would follow Me, the Light of the World. When you do not, you follow the world, and the god of all that is darkness. If darkness is what you choose, I will give you over to it.

    You live in the time of the wise and unwise virgins, My Children – the Bridegroom is on His Way, and the Bride is either preparing, or not. The door is soon to close and those who are unprepared will be left without – outside. The Bride shall enter in, and others will be shut out. This is your time – choose wisely, for the darkness is great where there is no light.

    My Will for you is not difficult – do what you know to do, and I will show you the rest as you walk with Me, day by day. This is your reasonable service. I have offered you eternal life, serve Me with your temporary one.

    In 2016, I am going to surprise many of My People. I will surprise you with the godly mates you have asked Me for. I will surprise you with promotion at your job. I will surprise you with increase – you who have not known abundance, but who have believed Me and given, in spite of your need – I will surprise you – you will have more than enough! I am working behind the scenes to surprise some who are ready for the ministries I have been preparing you for. Unsaved loved ones will suddenly be saved. Yes, My People – change is coming in 2016, and the changes will be very good for those who have obeyed Me. Those who have hearkened to My Words those who have walked in My Ways.

    For those who have not truly believed, I will give you opportunities to believe Me – chances to grow your faith, to accept My Words to you.

    2016 shall be many faceted – and which facets you see will depend on where you are in your journey with Me. Those who have much in Me shall be given more – those who have little will be given a chance to obtain more.

    As you speak to the mountains in your life in 2016, you will see them begin to crumble. For I shall bring down mountains of debt, mountains of slander, mountains of accusation, and reproaches, mountains of sin when you lift up your voice in faith and speak out My Word.

    For I am a mighty God and well able to deliver you, My Children! My People shall not be ashamed – you have not believed in vain. Many of you wonder, even now, if you have believed Me in vain, but you have not! Stir up your faith daily and think on who I am.

    I am able, though you are not, to bring it to pass.

    1. Peggy…your post makes me cry… I see in it things the Lord is putting on my heart. 7th paragraph really stands out because I’m in turmoil over separating myself. He says, “Do not dwell among them, My People, be ye set apart from these, My Children, for what fellowship has light with darkness”? How do you do that? How do you stay away from those you love that are living a vile life? Yet how do you be around them and fit in. I can’t fit in and go along with the sin. My ears hurt at the sound of the words used, my eyes burn at what I see, my heart aches for them & those slandered and left out. This is my family. I pray for them and the strongholds that are upon them and I also pray for what I believe to be generational curses.

      Yet I see and get strength from the promises in your post. So thank you. I also feel as though your post is speaking to a dream I had Monday morning.

      My dream started with me hearing “The time is near”. – The message was crisp & clear! Then I could see three of us in the room. I’m reasonably sure one was my daughter. The other was me. Then there was the one giving instruction. We were told about the troubled times we’re in and those to come. I said, “Then we don’t have much time, we must go and spread His word. NOW! “We must save as many souls as possible”! There was an urgency to do this. End of dream. I have prayed for the Lord to show me who else was with us and am feeling it was the Holy Spirit. Not sure though.

      As I was recording this dream which I thought was the last entry for the day (The Lord said, and I believe this is significant), “make sure you can recite scripture, and make sure you tell all that you help to also be prepared to recite scripture”. More specifically, make sure you know my prayer… The Lord’s Prayer, Matthew 6: 9-13 and also Psalms 23: 1-6. Write them in your journal…and so I did. That was a lot of writing…I ask, “Why do you want this written”? The answer didn’t come immediately but it did come. I was told that we will not have Bibles to turn to, or our computers. So memorize My word.

      I read from the KJV. I think it’s worthy to note: the last word in the Lord’s Prayer is FOR EVER!
      The Lord’s Prayer ends with VS. 13 “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: for thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory, FOR EVER”, Amen

      As I recorded Psalms 23: 1-6, I was made aware that the last word in Psalms 23 is also FOR EVER. Psalms 23:6 “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord FOR EVER”.

      In the KJV forever is written as I have written it above…its split. Is there significance to that?
      I do believe the word “forever” was made to stand out for me…so I can establish the meaning of eternal life for those who are about to be saved.

      2. Oh sweet sister Vicki, my guess is there isn’t one of us that doesn’t have wounds like this over family and friends who just will not see.

        This command to “come out of her, my people” is indeed a painful one to obey, but the reward is GREAT! I’ve been alone here in my home, praying and seeking the Lord, for so many years. I once had lots of friends, but quickly learned they were professing Christians only. 😦

        When I started hearing them say that all religions lead to God; that Jesus didn’t have to die for our SINS, He died to show us a better way to love; that it wouldn’t matter if they discovered His bones in Jerusalem. . .this from people who attend church every week and are members of retreat teams and lead groups in prayer–God just told me to walk away. They poison your spirit with their false doctrine and watery “gospels.”

        But just this year He has plopped me right in the middle of a Bible-believing Church close to our home! Ah, fellowship! They are asleep as far as end times goes, but maybe that’s why He sent ME! We’ll see. We have a new and dynamic pastor too. He’s a Bible translator and has traveled all over the world working with teams to translate the Bible into heart languages. He has quite a perspective about the Body of Christ!

        Anyway, sister. . .do not despair. The King honors the prayers of His saints. It’s quite possible that you will see many if not all of your family/friends in Heaven with you, thanking you for your faithfulness in prayer!

        Be blessed, sister,

  5. Thank you for posting this Linda. Stig-ove, I understand what you are saying about the joy of God’s creation.
    Seven years ago I became ill and was given 6 mths to live. I had been working 40-60 hrs/week at my job, was involved in music ministry, intercessory prayer and also ran a home based business on the side.
    Suddenly, I could do nothing! Boy did I go through a transformation in more ways than one. Instead of frontline warfare all I heard from God for 7 yrs was “BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD”.

    I struggled for a long time thinking I was a loser because I wasn’t “doing” anything. Then I really opened my eyes and started see the wonder of God’s creation and how intricately He has made things. It was such an incredible feeling to really see how BIG my God was.

    I didn’t read a lot of scripture, listen to CDs or watch Dvds. I just sat before the Lord as He let me see the beauty and wonder of this world. When I improved to the point of being able to read and digest the Word again, the Holy Spirit started showing me all the subtle ways God had been strengthening my faith and love for Him when I could do nothing. I believe God spared me for such a time as this.

    I still have a lot of physical limitations but am not afraid. God will make a way for me wherever He wants me and for whatever He wants me to do. And yes, Linda and Dave I too find pleasure in munching on chocolate and making s’mores. I love showing God’s love to people, sharing a kind word, and even making a cranky little child smile in the store.

    I see my horse chomping at the bit all decked out for battle, my sword is sharp, my quiver full of fiery arrows. I am excited for the time when the Lord says, “Arise Deborah!” I take the greatest pleasure in the fact I read the end of the book and WE WIN!!!!!
    Blessings to all the wonderful people on this precious blog.

  7. Awesome post Deb – I have “seen” something in your testimony that was of great help – I am always of the mindset that I can do what The Lord wants because I am physical and love the hunting and gathering of things and that is a big part of feeling useful to Him. But what if for a season He decides to take me out to just focus on HIm and His wonders? Would I just sit there and say “Lord heal me” so I can get back to work and miss the things that He has shown you? It just struck me that we are to trust Him with whatever He puts in our path – that although I could not do what I think is useful to Him, He can be praised and drawn closer to us in any circumstance. Thank You for sharing that.

    Well even stars fade in comparison within Gods creation when you see children grow in love towards their parents.
    My eldest son turned 3 the other day and to see the joy in his eyes when playing with daddy that makes my view of how we grow in Jesus. When we grow and fall and hurt he is there to pull us up and patch us into working order again.
    Thats one of those small joys i have in life even if raising kids is hard labor at times.
    Even if we are weak Jesus can pull us up! In our weakness he is made strong. Apostle Paul heard that and he was a monolith of faith and strenght. And even he said who can free me from this body of death? Jesus can, but its more expedient you stay with us because you are needed and precious. Jesus thinks so you will be patched up and made into playing order by big daddy himself just like i do with my son.
    Being weak can be an experience that makes us stronger than ever in the end.

    Lindas blog is probably the first place i have openly chatted like this.

        It relates directly to what Stig-ove shared above.

        I believe I posted a Word of Knowledge there from a friend to me that said that the Heavenly Father says to you “No matter how tall you are, you will always be HIS little girl.”
        The “little girl” part sounded like such a paradox at first.
        I am 5’10” and 60 years of age. BUT, I did happily receive that message.

      The Lessons always have me on the “edge of my seat” and that’s been for 2 full years. Prior to the Genesis study, a 3 year verse by verse study of Revelation was done.The saying then was “Revelation is NOT a hard book to understand”!

      At Shabbat, she does Themes as led by the Holy Spirit. One of the most recent themes was “Walking in the Supernatural.” That was a foundational study of the 9 Fruit of the Spirit in Galatians. She actually packaged that as a 14 hour CD SET….. it was great.

Should that time come sooner or later, I have told The Lord I will carry you all in my heart during the darkness. That all of us be equipped and blessed to carry out whatever He wants us too. And in the final gathering at the “BIG” permanent convention in heaven, our angels will point each other out to thank each other and most of all to thank HIm together.

      My brothers and sisters, just want you to know that the Lord has REALLY bumped up my prayer life in that I did a prayer walk around our little neighborhood church building yesterday morning with a sister in Christ and it was POWERFUL! Whew! We were both vibrating with the presence of the Holy Spirit–recollections of War Room prayer warriors! RAISE US UP, LORD! RAISE US UP! If you haven’t seen it, do so!

        1. Thank you, Peggy. I”m still working on that warning post and my head is hurting like in a vice, so prayers are needed.

          I do know sometimes these headaches are related to the altitude we are now living . . For we are in the mountains and surrounded by mountains (hmmm, kinda makes sense why the LORD continued to answer my question of why we were sent here: “for your protection”). . . But each must located where the Heavenly Father wants him/her. I believe we are all being strategically placed, so we can minister in our various locations when the proverbial “poo hits the fan”.

The message below the second line is the one about “Flu.” It’s not the first message about this which she has posted in the last few days.

    —which is the care of this World.

    WARNING! WARNING!! WARNING! !!
    A flu virus is coming!
    Let Us be very aware!
    A Flu Is Coming To The World!

    What makes this Virus different is its speed and its rapidity.
    It will be airborne!
    It will spread quickly.
    Government will call for quarantine.
    It will be World wide.

    Believers When this Virus Comes!
    Put the Name of King Yeshua/Jesus On Your front door,
    As the Children of lsrael did in Egypt.

    Fast and pray on the first day of the quarantine.
    This virus will be behaving as if is a
    Is kind-of-spirit-driven,
    King Yeshua/Jesus is the Answer.

    We do not want to carry love ones,
    with tears in our eyes after the quarantine.
    We want to Praise and Rejoice Before The LORD;
    After the virus has receded.

    Please tell your Loves,
    Tell fellow believers,
    Tell even the Unsaved
    Tell the unrepentant.

    Tell those with strange gods in our Midst.
    Only ln King Yeshua/Jesus will be Salvation,
    There is no Salvation in no any Other,
    The Kingdom of the World has become,
    The Kingdom of Of The True G-d and The Messiah!

    I do not know if the virus
    will come before economic (dollar) depreciation,
    Or
    After The fall of the Economy.

    This Flu is definitely coming!
    This Flu Is definitely coming!

    When the Government declare quarantine
    That is the Flu!!!

    1. Thank you, Peggy and it’s a reminder to us: we have AUTHORITY over all sickness and disease. Mark 16:17-18. . . And we can pray for deliverance from this and any/all pandemic they plan on unleashing, for that is going to happen as well.

      Here’s a warning dream about that, but not to bring fear, but as a reminder to remember the authority we have in Christ and the protection we have as children from the Kingdom of Heaven.:

    1. Oh my, Peggy . .. What we are already seeing is a famine for the Spiritual Word. . . And yes, it will unfold in the natural. There are prophecies regarding the poisoning of our food and water, which may be a fast “famine in the land”, but I want to remind all of the promises given to us and for us to have this in our inner being:
      Mark 16:17-18 –
      These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

      SO, WHEN you hear of this happening. . . The poisoning of food/water, pray over it . . . Bless it. . . Ask the Heavenly Father to remove ALL that is unholy and harmful, in Jesus’ name, amen. It may be a good idea to do that now anyway, with all of the contaminants in the air, food and water.

      Now, where did this transformation of poisonous waters happen in the Bible?

      Exodus 15:22-26 –
      Then Moses led Israel from the Red Sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness and found no water. When they came to Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah, for they were bitter; therefore it was named Marah. So the people grumbled at Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?” Then he cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a tree; and he threw it into the waters, and the waters became sweet.
      There He made for them a statute and regulation, and there He tested them. And He said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the Lord, am your healer.”

  16. Another word of warning:

    MONDAY, JANUARY 4, 2016 (through Ali Winters; awatchmanonthewall)

    “Tumultuous days come in 2016. What awaits the righteous are opportunities to witness to the lost bringing many souls into My kingdom. Do not be dismayed that some reject your words of truth. Pray for them and move on. Shake the dust from your feet and move forward. 2016 will be a time of harvest. Guard your heart against worldly distractions. Set your heart and mind on Me. Take opportunity to speak to as many as you can. Be bold under My anointing, be pliable in My hand. Take chances, do not shrink back. Invite Me to be a part of your witness. Seek Holy Spirit’ direction. He will give you words and opportunities to share. Expect the unexpected.

    The end is near and millions remain lost and separated from Me. Remain humble. Dark, dark days approaching. You must be prepared. Learn of Me the lessons to be shared with many in the time remaining. The days have been numbered, the countdown has begun and there is much for My anointed ones to do before I call them home.”

    “Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?” Romans 6:16

    “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by The Word of God.” Romans 10:17
    Rescue the perishing, care for the dying. JESUS is merciful, JESUS will save.!

We had a member of our prayer group tell us last night that while on his knees in prayer on Sunday at 2:00 for his uncle (they had just disconnected life support), he saw a bright white light that changed into a vivid green and then this INCREDIBLE peace overwhelmed him. He knew at that moment that his uncle was with the King, and found out a few minutes later that he had indeed gone to be with the Lord. Praise God!

  19. I just saw “THE SIGN OF THE FISH” (Christianity) on an inside wall of my living room!
    It was in WHITE LIGHT. It was obvious and beautiful. I had never seen anything like it before.

    I saw it about 5 minutes after discussing with someone that Jesus is the ONLY WAY……. that Crislam (combination of Christianity and Islam) is a false religion, and that the Bible is obvious that abortion (the taking of innocent life) as well as sexual immorality including fornication and homosexuality, and any other form of sexual immorality are sins.

    I also expressed that we can NEVER DENY JESUS CHRIST, no matter what.

      I pray MORE Muslims will be granted the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, into their souls, so that they may repent and turn to JESUS, so they won’t be going into everlasting torment and fulfilling the prophetic posture of their prayers to Satan.

  21. Kenzel- in reading your post on the dow – it led me to warn us all that they cant hold this market up much longer – the cliff is giving way. Read awhile ago that the feds told the major banks that if any future financial trouble arises the feds WILL NOT bail any bank in US out any longer – that is why November of 2013 new sneaky legislation was passed that now allows banks to lock down in event of any financial implosions – In other words when we now deposit money, we are not classified as depositors any longer we are now “creditors” that means if a bank fails we “get in line at the very end and only hope there is assets to pay us our deposits in full”. I pulled out of chase bank a few years ago and went to a local credit union – and plus I have a small amount of cash in my safe – I only keep the minimum for bill paying in credit union – Europe has passed similar regulations as well – just a heads up in case anyone forgot or did not know…… I know this is an “earthly topic” but yet it feels like its part of our being good stewards as The Lord wants….. Alarms are going off everywhere…… Lord keep the darkness in the light for us !!!!!! Amen

    1. You are referring to the “bank bail-in”. . . Say “bye-bye” to most of your money in the bank. Now would be a really good time to decide to go out and purchase some extra supplies from your funds, for if you take it out in a large amount, that will trigger a possible investigation; you may have police show up at your door to confiscate money, claiming “concerns that money will be used for drugs, or other lie”. .. Oh yes, it has happened.

    Last night as I lay in bed I kept thinking of your blog. I have been following for a while but only commented recently. It has been so refreshing to hear like-minded people who actually “get it”. This brought a huge deluge of tears (thankful ones) since I have felt that most of my adult I have been swimming upstream. Very misunderstood or misjudged, I guess you could say I truly fit the peculiar people category. When I became ill it was an overnight type transition. No work, no recreation, no playing music. It suddenly became very apparent that all the titles and things that I thought defined me were what I did or had done not how God sees me.

    I am so blessed by the thought of having each others backs and lifting each other up as the Lord leads. If we get to, notice I didn’t say have to, participate in the suffering of Christ, it is nice to know there are those God has brought along side us to help us keep our hands raised in the battle. And yes, I know that is no substitute for God, just nice to have some encouragement and know I’m not crazy!
