Cindy Jacobs gives us insight as How to pray for Israel   Leave a comment

Pray:

Father we do pray right now for a great awakening for Israel. We pray for great awakening in Israel.

Lord, I pray for the Parliament of Britain, I pray Father in the name of Jesus for the believers that are there.

I pray that you were shift the opinion there in Britain and give them a love for Israel.

Father I pray that even John Kerry, President Obama, those in our Congress, that you will shift their heart also.

Lord,  I pray that the funding for the terrorist will be exposed.
We agree that the sanctions will work that the funding will be cut off.  Expose it today,  expose it worldwide.

Father wherever the money is coming from I pray that it will be exposed and cut off. Lord that they will not have an endless supply of rockets to shoot at Israel.

Lord we thank you for this. Father we bind the spirit of jihad.

I bind the powers of darkness that are causing hatred and forming this hatred.

Father.  we thank you Lord we pray for a move of God in Israel. We pray that they will begin to have visions of Yeshua.  Father we thank you Lord that what you’re going to do is so supernatural.  Lord turn it for good.

We pray for protection for all the believers that we love in Israel.  We stand for our beloved family that are in Gaza and in the Arab speaking world.  Lord let them know we are with them in Jesus name. Amen

Fresh Manna Daily   Leave a comment

In Exodus chapter 16 we read as the Lord speaks to Moses concerning the children of Israel. At this point the Lord is telling Moses that He has heard the grumblings of the people and He is going to answer them by feeding them quail in the evenings and bread in the mornings. He gave them strict instructions to only gather a specified amount for each person to last for each day and not to keep any extra for the next day. Those that disobeyed found that the bread (or “manna”) they had saved from the day before was full of maggots and smelled.

In Deuteronomy chapter 8 it says “ 2Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.”

Notice that the scripture says that the LORD LED them into the wilderness and that He did this in order to humble them and to see what was in their hearts. He also CAUSED them to hunger to teach them that we should find our sustenance in the Bread that comes from Heaven. The very words that come from the mouth of our God are the only thing that will satisfy a hungry soul that was led into the wilderness.

The next time we see verse 3 quoted in scripture is in Matthew Chapter 4:  “Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted[a] by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’[b]

Note that Jesus was LED by the Spirit of God into the wilderness just as the children of Israel. He was also led there to be tempted just as they were.  (The Greek word used here can also be translated as tested). He could have grumbled against His Father at having led him to that place or because He was hungry. Just as the children of Israel were in the wilderness for 40 years Jesus was in the wilderness for 40 days and 40 nights and he also was HUNGRY. His response to the devil was that he lives not by bread only but by every word that comes from the mouth of His Father.

In Matthew 6:11 Jesus is teaching us that we ought to pray this way: “Give us this day our DAILY BREAD”. It is no mistake that he is telling us to pray for fresh daily bread. I believe there is a principle being laid out for us in the scriptures to seek the Lord for daily bread from Heaven. We cannot live on the manna from yesterday. Not to say that what we received from the Lord the day before will be full of maggots but that the Lord intends to give us fresh manna DAILY. He has prepared fresh words for us to live by for TODAY. Our Heavenly Father knows what today will hold for us and He knows the exact words that we need to hear to be able to face THIS day. The words from yesterday may no longer be applicable for what we must face TODAY.

One last food for thought (pun intended J )…Read Psalms 104. He gives life to everything on earth and in verse 15 it says that he” gives wine that gladdens human hearts, oil to make their faces shine, and bread that sustains their hearts.” I love the wording chosen by the psalmist of “Bread that sustains their hearts”. How I know that one fresh word from my Lord can sustain my heart. It can satisfy any hunger and put to rest any fears or doubts that may come as we are walking in our wilderness.

Thy Word have I hid in my Heart   Leave a comment

As I was studying the word this morning, I felt impressed of The Lord to write out those scriptures my dad taught me as a child. As I pondered on them, they kept coming to me like a river.. Chapter and verse… Word for word.
I want to encourage others to remember what the Lord put in their heart as a child, through our parents. Forward this BLOG to others and comment on it and we can all learn from each other. We all have different paths, but the same word that is the same yesterday, today and Forever!

Reminds me of these scriptures:

Hebrews 13:7-8 (KJV)
7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.
8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.

Isaiah 55:11 (KJV)
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Here are the Scriptures my Dad taught me when I was young:

Isaiah 53:4-5 (KJV)
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

John 1:1 (KJV)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Romans 6:23 (KJV)
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 8:28 (KJV)
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

1 Corinthians 15:57 (KJV)
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Philippians 4:19 (KJV)
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

1 John 1:9 (KJV)
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

So what are those scriptures that your loved one taught you when you were little that you still remember? CHAPTER AND VERSE?

Oh and my mom sat down with me and taught me to memorize this one:

Joshua 1:8 (KJV)
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

About two months ago I was praying with my friend and we were interceding for our siblings to grow closer to the Lord and all of the sudden I stopped the prayer and quoted the verse above from Joshua 1:8
My prayer partner asked me about it and I prophesied that our siblings would remember those scriptures our parents had taught us as children.

The next day I received a text out of the blue from my brother with Joshua 1:8…

This is not typical of my brother.. He couldn’t quite remember who taught it to him.. But he remembered that this book of the law shall not depart from out of my mouth..the whole verse!

The Word of God is true!

Psalm 119:11 (KJV)
11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

Amazing! Thank you Jesus!
Enough said! Praise be to God!

THE SACREDNESS OF TIME IN THE SPIRIT   Leave a comment

THE SACREDNESS OF TIME IN THE SPIRIT.

The FURNACE is BACK   Leave a comment

I AM SO EXCITED THAT THE FURNACE WILL BE STARTING BACK UP IN JANUARY!!!!
What is the Furnace you ask? Well, it is a night set aside to do nothing but seek the face of the Lord. The first 1/2 hour or so we just sit quietly before HIM and allow Him to speak to our hearts. There will be a worshipful CD playing during this time. Then a worship team will lead us as we enter into a time of corporate worship. There is a microphone at the front of the sanctuary for the purpose of sharing what you believe the Lord wants you to share with the Body. It must be relevant to what is happening in the service. If you are unsure, there are always members of leadership there to speak with and to get confirmation about the word and/ or the timing of the delivery.
I am very excited because when we gathered for these services in the past the Lord spoke to us and really ministered to us.
Stay tuned for more details!

The Hidden Treasures must be sought After   Leave a comment

The Lord recently showed me a picture of His heart. It looked like a cavern; the kind of cavern that you would mine for diamonds in. The impression that was on my heart at the time was

Matthew 13:44-46 (NIV)     The Parables of the Hidden Treasure and the Pearl

44“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.

45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. 46 When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.

The hidden mysteries of the Lord’s heart are like treasures that are hidden and must be sought out. The Bible tells us to “seek the Kingdom” (Mt 6:33), to “seek and we shall find” (Mt 7:7)

You see, they are AVAILABLE to ALL but they are not just laying out on the ground for any Joe Schmoe to come by and flippantly pick them up. If they were just laying around then they would not be as precious stones and full of value. Think about a diamond for example, a diamond has it’s value because of the work and effort that is put into perfecting it. The ones that are more rare and full of more dimension go up in value. The Lord’s treasures are the same. The mysteries that are more valuable must be sought after with a pure heart.

I am not implying that we must “WORK” for the Lord to show you things but I do believe that we must “SEEK” out HIS heart.

How do we seek?

I believe being diligent in prayer, reading of the Word, filling our spirits with Godly teaching, and WORSHIP are great ways to do this. If we will humble ourselves before the Almighty God of our Salvation He will surely respond. After all, HE inhabits our praises. He loves to connect with us intimately but often times it is us who cut ourselves short of a wonderful revelation and blessing from the LORD simply because we just don’t give HIM the time that HE deserves and longs for.

Another piece of this revelation began to unfold as I began to realize that there are also hidden treasures inside each one of us in the Body. Each one of us “Seekers” have gone into the caverns of the Heart of our Father and dug out a treasure, a revelation, a truth. What you may have dug out might possibly be a different stone than what I dug out or maybe it was the stone right next to where my stone was found. What I mean is this, we each see in part and you may have a part that I don’t have and I may have a part you don’t have but if we come together and share with each other our parts then we see more of the Bigger picture.

I am ready to dig down into the caverns of His heart and find some treasures. Want to go digging with me?
