Blogging is a Moving Meditation.

BLOGGING as a MOVING MEDITATION: Liminality's thin passage untangles as it weaves, fits in the ineffable nooks and crannies of my heart's prayer wall, like the cracks in pavement, mile markers on the road, windblown whimsical napkin poems written in eyeliner.

Resting Place

There is no place like His presence... where i can put my sword down... and just sit at His feet. We can do it when we are awake or asleep... for the Spirit NEVER sleeps. Thought i'd share a prophetic dream that i had semi-reciently.

In the dream, i was at a "New Age" conference... and there was a lot of stirrings in the 2nd Heaven warfare realms. This woman was giving a presentation on "How to be a GOOD medium"- to which i chuckled in the dream at the actual title... Good and Medium being in the same sentence. She started to channel this THING... and then tried to hand me a journal to write down what she was saying. (I declined of course)-

It was then that i saw Rick Joyner sitting in the corner and we nodded at each other, and sort of did that knowing eye roll as to what was being presented. It was then Rick sent out a Spirit message... for there were other believers there- and i could sense their questioning as to why God had stuck us in this New Age Mecca. The Lord showed me that it was a Spirit message and not of Soulish telepathic realm- so that only those who were HIS could hear it.

What Rick said in the dream was.... "Stay your positions, there is gonna be and opportunity to reveal the Real from the Counterfeit." Then the dream shifted, and Rick was speaking - standing on a soap box- and he began a short teaching. He said "This is the difference between the psychic and the prophetic." "The psychics read palms and the prophets read breastplates."

Immediately the Lord started speaking to my spirit and said... "palm reading is flesh, it is soulish and so what someone can tell you of your past, the enemy was there and saw that as well. However, the Breast Plate of Aaron was the twelve tribes and the stones represented their territory, callings and giftings in the Spirit. When you prophesy to one who is an unbeliever, you are prophesying their calling- heritage and destiny in ME. -Calling forth their true idenity in which they were fashioned and framed to walk."

"When you prophesy My Heart to one who is already mine, you must Always look thru the Breast Plate of Righteousness and see them thorough the righteousness of MY SON JESUS. You will then see more clearly and with My heart of compassion- descerning. Then you will see the breast plate of Aaron in a strikingly new light, speaking revelation."

The dream changed again and i was out in a river. It was very dark, the movement of the water was forceful and choppy. There were 12 others and we were trying to stay together. You could see each one, by the bright orange color of their "life jackets". I don't know who said it... or if it even came from one of the 12..... but we heard a voice that said... "take your life jackets off, for they could get caught up on things to the point that it could kill you." So we all took them off....and began to swim freely and letting the currant, though it was traveling at a swift speed take us. We went under a bridge- thick walls- like a train would be traveling above it. There were lines of demarkation that signifiied the depth of the water. It said 43 feet deep. I awoke and the presence of the Lord was thick in the room. It was so tangiable that i could hardly sit up. So i asked the Lord what did the "life jackets" represent. He said "it is the spirit of religion- doctrines- where the enemy has tried to restrict My Power". I thought of all the different religious templates and how in our own mind and understanding, we have limited by our predjudices and opinions, His ability to move freely by His Spirit.

I pressed in again for more light to this revelation. I asked what did the 43 ft deep water marker represent? He said Isaiah 43........ - i'll leave that to all the inquiring minds that want to know. For me.... i just wept.

on an aside note... As i further inquired and brought this word before a few of His servants. I learned from the Jewish perspective... that when the High Priest inquired of the Lord, concerning a question, the stones in the actual Breast Plate would glow. Each of the stones had a corrilating hebrew letter, so the Priest would actual READ the Breastplate. Selah!

Warriors Heart

I really have a dilemma... and it's NOT the Cab vs. Merlot-
My brother sent me the picture.... he's a full on Marine Warrior (you can scroll down and see him if ya want)- but he saw it and Holy Spirit quickened to his heart ... that this is who i am in the Spirit....(there is another picture that i will blog on later... it's the other part.) But for now.... this is where i'm at.... My heart is to see each one that i have the privilege and HONOR of meeting - walk in the fullest freedom that has been ordained for them. I'm willing ONLY by the Grace of God... to go all the way in to see a POW/MIA- set free. But what i despise is the "fall out"- the passive aggressive crap that i get while in the midst. I know it's some of the warfare.. but "friendly fire" ain't friendly! I have always at least TRIED to be honest, real and authentic- but for what ever reason that pisses some off.

So how do i stand in a place of TRUTH... that we're all screwed up except for the Grace of God that is in the Active Process of transforming US. - which means granting grace to where each is in the process and not taking the transference personally. My friend Derek Chapman calls it "holding the container"- which is a great frame... but there are times when i really want Smith Wigglesworth mantle... and punch something evil. I'm really trying to be vulnerable here... on a freakin public blog.... It's no wonder why there are soooooo many Pastors in burn out mode. I read something about "sheep bites"- that they are the most infectious bites someone could get in the natural. Well in the Spirit it takes on a whole different level. It's aim is to KILL! I'm NOT trying to be dramatic... embellish... or over enunciate the plight of a warrior. But there are sooooo few that actually know... perceive... or understand the other side of it. The place where i want to collapse... into the arms of my Jesus.... and say..... "be my defense" - sometimes TRUE HUMILITY... is NOT denying the Authority in which one has been graced to walk.

It always seems to be Miss.Interpreted that likes to twist things, based on subjective findings. I'm not implying gender here... however... more than the masculine.... it is often the broken feminine that seems to be wielding that sword. Let me elaborate a bit more fully- at the speculation that i might be miss-interpreted. The true masculine is the place of initiating.... where as the true feminine is the place of responding. When distortion is present... the receiver is damaged... so that everything is perceived from a place of threat. Jesus himself could appear in manifested form/ theophany if you will- and the person would be asking .... "is this an angel of light?"- implying falseness. i know this is a Dennis Miller like rant... but had to get it out here....
Lord heal my heart- give me YOUR perspective on the matter- the places where i feel the stones of judgment being hurled. I can't walk this walk that You have called me to without YOUR unoffendable HEART.
