#Supernatural #weapon #training #2017 – #offensive weapon #sing

This is a challenging one – to sing … in the Spirit!

It is also a complex but mighty weapon in the right hands.

First off let us get things straight … I am not talking about the necessity of voice training, needing to be tone true, or having an “angelic” voice. I am talking of a person with a desire to worship our Father.

And here is another thing … worship. This is not something we do at particular moments, it is something that SHOULD be done at ALL times. We should never be not worshipping the King.

So, in order to acquire this devastating (to the deceiver) weapon “singing” we must first realise the action of worship.

The Hebrew for “worship” spells it out so precisely: shin chet hey. Chet is the predominant call to action – the call to “go down” into death, then come up into eternal life (the Hebrew word “shakhar” means to prostrate or bow down low … in other words humble yourself before your YHWH – that’s the place where God’s strength is), Chet is a trustworthy shelter where the Good Shepherd keeps the flock safely penned in. Shin then takes us to the next step … the ability to distinguish, or to be on the receiving end of God’s divine power (or His power to divine); This in turn introduces us to the supernatural stance of revelation, for Hey is that very act which is carried out in us as we worship in the Spirit. This secret element puts us in a truly powerful position that opens us up to the movement of the Spirit – which is available to us any time any where … so we must be awake to take it on board – wherever we are.

With such a stance established within us we come to the next incredible step of arming ourselves with the desire to sing … listen carefully – this is like taking off the safety catch of a weapon … it now becomes lethal to any uncleanness surrounding us.

Shore (rolling the r) – this is the Hebrew for “sing”. shin yod resh.

Yod is predominant and is the call to worship (hence my introduction above). The emphasis here (because of its predominance) is to act – to be experiencing such an intensity of worship. Shin then hones in on the specific … ie singing, and distinguishing the difference between singing what is written before you, and singing from what is on your heart … which neatly brings us to resh, for here is the action of a welling up from the innermost parts. This is none other than singing in the Spirit – and the evil one hates it! So yod becomes a defiance that says (or sings) “… enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness” (Acts 4:29).

The final and most devastating part of this is the importance of singing from personal experience. This might sound a bit strange, but find something your Father has most definitely been involved in during a testing time in your life. I’ll give you a quick example: I had an accident a few years ago whereby I fell into a canal and hit my head hard on a concrete block. I should have either drowned from being knocked out; or poisoned from the toxins in the water (a man half my age fell into the canal at another time – he died with 24 hours!); or my head wound should have killed me because of the stuff that entered it from the canal. Three times YHWH saved me … and I shall never stop shouting and sing His protection!!

So – sing to the Lord … NO – Sing your heart out to Him at all times!

#Supernatural #Weapon #Training for #2017 part 3 – Say

This is perhaps one of the more potent weapons that we have at our disposal. Unfortunately, it is also the least understood, least used, attribute of a progressive follower of Yeshua ha’Mashiach.
This is the simplest of weapons to use – but most of us have no idea how to use it. This is the word ‘say’. Genesis 1:3 “And God said ‘let there be light’ and there was light.”
Genesis reveals that this is an attribute of the Father, which implies that it is an attribute for us to use also. But it is most important for us to take to heart under what circumstances we may not only acquire this, but also for us to witness, first hand, miracles that manifest before our eyes as a result of what we have just said.
In Genesis YHWH is working from a particular environment – that is, from the eternal Kingdom, outside space and time, in perfection Himself. Therefore, our Father was coming from authenticity – there was nothing false within Him. So He was able to command the impossible – and realise the appropriate response from His surroundings. Let’s say that YHWH was acting within His unique perfect position.
We are not so blessed. Our lives began in darkness, and we have to spend our lives gradually (by Gods grace) being transformed from it. This is manifest in the sad fact that our word is no longer trusted, and lying has almost become the acceptable thing.
If, however, we read Genesis 27, we find a challenging story of Isaac being deceived in blessing Jacob with Esau’s blessing – and he could not undo what had come out of his mouth. This is a very difficult passage for 21st century westernised people to grasp. But that is because we do not think like ancient eastern Hebrew people – we do not know how to! Until we begin to wrestle with Yeshua’s exhortation in Matthew 15:11, which implies that there is the possibility of everything perfect coming out of the body. And it is from that point of view that we should turn to the power packed word ‘am-air’… to say or to speak.
ALEPH, MEM, RESH.
I believe that this is a unique word, even in Hebrew, in that each character shares the importance of its position – you’ll see:
MEM – the act of baptism (ie dying to the world with Yeshua – then rising to perfect eternal life with Him also). This is done because of His blood spilt for you (note: Leviticus 17:11 – life is in the blood). And MEM is also water (again note: John 7:38 – rivers of living water!). Both these examples point to a perfect vital existence – so I have chosen this as the place to start ie immerse yourself in the blood/the water, and shockingly, MEM also means the Word! So, immerse yourself in the Word of God – a great place to start – and remember, all Hebrew characters can be read (and obeyed) as calls to action!
Now we add ALEPH on the one side – this is the execution of the Father’s power and authority, and I am talking about healing the sick, raising the dead, casting out demons – yes, THAT kind power and authority!
Incredibly, on the other side is RESH. It is ‘bringing something up out of the mind’. It is easy for the Westerner to accept the concept of the mind, but this is different. The English translated word ‘mind’ can also mean, in Hebrew, the spirit – or, The Spirit! That’s it! It makes absolute sense! The word to be spoken has to come from the living Word that is the Son, given power and authority that no one can stand against – that is from the Father. And energized, made manifest, brought into this reality in total obedience – by the Holy Spirit!… So, there WAS light!

#Supernatural #Weapon #Training for #2017 part 2 #Fasting

The other day someone came into our gathering and simply said in response to a question on how God can work through us, he said ”Things happen after a two or three-day fast”. When I went to speak to him further he had vanish – and we have not seen him since that one time.
However, it got me thinking about what happens when one fasts. What does it mean anyway? Well, I am sure you will be able to quote the numerous challenging statements from Mark 9:29, Isaiah 58, and a number of other references – all exhorting us to do it right.
So, I had a look at the Hebrew for ‘fasting’, and sure enough, found myself reading with eyes agog as to what was before me.
The supernatural clearly ‘energizes’ what is contained, and seems to be fitting offensive weapon that manifests the Kingdom of Heaven – as we participate. Read this carefully:
The Hebrew word for ‘fast’ is ‘Tsoom’ – Tsade Vav Mem
Vav means to commit oneself. Tsade means to wait. Men means to sustain (perhaps by drinking water!)
But there is more – a lot more!
Let’s go deeper:
Vav means to be committed to the way of the Lord (or to pitch your tent in His camp). And Vav contains precisely what that way is – none other than the Yasher Light (which is the light of righteousness – and remember this ‘light’ is the one referred to by Daniel – chapter 5 verse 11 ”…insight and intelligence and wisdom… ” This is the Aramaic word Naheru). This is the light that descends upon those in submission, and endows them with revelation. … and that changes those who hear (if they have the appropriate ears to hear!).
Tsade means waiting with an attitude that is concentrating upon what is about to be received (and we are not talking physical food). This is the same attitude that ones receives as they ‘receive’ righteousness, because this word is the action of righteousness (not the object of righteousness).
Mem is the character that presses us to question. But it also implies ‘ask and you SHALL receive’. Mem also contains the idea of receiving the Living Water – and being washed in the Blood AND receiving the Word of God… that is letting God’s Word dwell with you richly, which changes us entirely! Paul said ”… Be transformed by the renewal of your mind” Romans 12:2.
Are you beginning to see that ‘fasting’ is not going without food (Isaiah 58), rather it is feasting upon all that our Incredible Father is showering upon us!
So, how offensive is that? I would say pretty offensive seeing as all YHWH pours upon us reveals the eternal Kingdom – AND at the same time destroys every dark so-called stronghold – not so strong eh?

#Supernatural #Weapon #Training for 2017 – part 1

This is vital to take hold of – and understand how to use it.
It is the offensive weapon ‘praise’, and this packs some incredible supernatural abilities, which I think we will need to fully grasp this coming year.
I believe the secret key to using this effectively is by looking at the original Hebrew word pronounced ‘yardah’ YOD DALET HEY.
In the context of praising our Eternal Father – which we should learn to do at all times, whether we feel like it or not (Psalm 9 all of it) – DALET is truly an eye opener, just read this: Revelation 4:1, and bear in mind that DALET means door. So, if we are seeking to praise God then the opportunity is there for us to be in the same situation as John – as long as we are pressing on to perfection and not looking down at our own shortcomings.
But DALET also stands for something else – the Shekhinah Glory (The Father dwelling among us – this is His PROMISE to all who submit to Him). In this context DALET becomes a supernatural vehicle when YOD is acted upon.
How? Amazingly, and simply, YOD is the outstretched arm and hand. And when we lift up our upturned palms to Abba we are physically submitting ourselves to what ever His purpose is for us. At the same time YOD can be the hand of God on us, protecting us, as we read earlier in Psalm 9.
On the other side there is HEY – revelation (the Father revealing Himself to us – specifically!). It is also worshipping in the Spirit, the end result being the same – YHWH manifesting His glory before our very eyes. No wonder YARDAH is a dramatic call to praise our Master and King!
Now, did you notice that each character is a two-way function – from God, to God (Isaiah 55:10,11). This is His Shekhinah glory made manifest. Totally supernatural! You better expect things to happen when you truly praise our Lord!
But I said this is an offensive weapon. What can be more offensive to the father of deception than to be totally ignored while we glory in our Elohim. Satan is simply pushed out of our minds, our hearts are lit up, the brightness reveals the Truth! And we just go from strength to strength – in Him!

A vision for 2017? 

​It happened again. I woke up in the night in a state of puzzlement. I had just drempt or visioned an inexplicable observation in which I was the ‘visual’ before me. It is almost impossible to describe but it was like an organic leaf like being gracefully lifting itself from something of great stature.  I was almost overcome by the intensive mixture of unadulterated joy…  and a strange uneasiness at sensing my insignificant size … which also felt like the size of the universe! 

When I became fully awake I perceived a sort of silent verbalisation of Acts 1. 8 “… And you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” At the same time somebody said three things,  ”This was not just said to the disciples then but to the disciples now” and ”think as a Hebrew and not a Greek” and ”you are not to be witnesses as to what Jesus is – but you are to be witnesses to what Jesus does – which will happen before your eyes.  Be ready to declare His supernatural love,  power,  and authority over what you witness.  In doing so you will be a lamp that will shine His chozeh light (which is actually a reflection of His yasher light).” 

(Yasher means righteous ie coming from YHWH,  chozeh means seer or prophet ie someone who speaks what God shows him.  So,  once we reflect the yasher light it goes from us to the one God wants to reveal something to – and then it returns to God as the chozeh light (Isaiah 55. 11 WOW!!)

A visionary dream? 

Is this just for me,  or is it also for someone else?

I do not know if this was a dream or vision whilst I was awake:

A verbal perception of the name Isaiah. 

A visual perception of a hand with a screwed up ball of red paper. A feeling that I should eat it.

An emotional perception that I had eaten it and I became overwhelmed with an intense sense of joy.

A final verbal perception (a very loud one!) of the word ”deliverance”.

My take on this is that, because I believe deliverance is a daily walk (Matthew 6.13), I will find valuable insights to manifest His glory within the book of Isaiah.

After all, deliverance is a two way thing – being delivered from the darkness,  and being saved by the light.

Applying the first layer of paint – from Genesis One!

glory

A few months ago I percieved that I should be painting with light.

I had no idea what it meant, but I had the distinct feeling that it was my Loving Father who was about to reveal something to me – so I sat quietly and waited for Him to say more.

I did not have long to wait.

Genesis 1:3 God said “Let there be light …”

The Hebrew for light is Aleph Vav Resh and sounds like Ore.

It is important to know that this word came from the lips of YHWH and was ‘said’ for the benefit of His future creation who would later read the verse – and then scratch their heads as they pondered as to what kind of light He was bringing into being (notice that YHWH did not “make” the light … it came into being … that is, it entered space and time – from somewhere else). So let us see where this goes.

The predominant character Vav means that “light” was to be an everlasting commitment on the Fathers behalf offered to all humanity, the Father would “pitch His tent” with us (this implies that The Father would dwell with us … the ancient rabbi’s called it the Shekhinah Glory … but that is for the next blog?).

Aleph is the Father Himself exercising power and authority by offering us to be yoked to Him, and in doing so we would receive intimacy, teaching, insight, and wisdom from Him.

Resh is that which is of fundamental importance – being the first … and which comes from the very depths of God’s ‘thoughts’ towards us.

Then YHWH says something very interesting in the next verse.

Genesis 1:4 “God saw that the light was good …”

Interesting because Jesus once responded to an observation with “Why do you call me good? No-one is good except God alone.” (Luke 18:19). So why is it that the Father declares that the Light that entered space and time is good – unless it has a direct connection with Him? That suggests that this light that YHWH manifested on Earth was from Himself and of Himself. It was a goodly light, or I would prefer to say – a Godly Light … or even more precise – the light of the Glory of God!

Then, more intriguing is that Jesus also said “I am the Light of the world” John 8:12. Now I do not know about you, but I am very happy to see these two “light” declarations – one from the Father, and one from the Son – as meaning the same light!

And there is more … almost definitely Jesus spoke to His disciples in Aramaic, and the Aramaic for “light” is Nar-he-rue … nun hey yod resh vav … which can also be found in Daniel 2:22 and 5:11. Amazingly, the Daniel references point to “light” being the light of wisdom and insight. This puts a whole new slant upon the Genesis verse.

And I cannot resist adding a few words from the wonderful poetry of the apocryphal book The Wisdom of Solomon 7:26 … here the writer is describing Wisdom herself:

For she is a reflection of eternal light,
a spotless mirror of the working of God,
and an image of his goodness.

This is another aspect of that light … reflected light? The Hebrews call it the Chozeh light (pronounced “Khozeh” with the kh being a “clearing of the throat” kind of sound). You will find this word in numerous places in the Bible translated to the English “seer”, the first being 2 Samuel 24:11 … but for now I need to let this paint application dry – until the next blog …
