Prophetic word: Losing your Song

I gave this word at my local church assembly this last Sunday, but it is an evergreen type of word, as various people in different places and seasons will experience this type of thing. Feel free to share it so others may receive comfort and encouragement.

Some people, through their experience, have not been singing as they have before, but there is more to this- it is a stratagem to try to steal your song.

Joy brings a song, but sorrow can stifle it or occlude it’s sound in your heart and mind.

(Sorrow can be a place for your song too, for grieving and healing, as long as we don’t let go of our song or lose it there)

Your song of worship is a crucial factor of your experience & connectedness with God. It comes out of our joy of Him, of our victories and belief. It’s also what we offer Him in response and gratitude.

Your song is a part of you, like an essence or matter.

David van Koevering (who made the first digital synth/piano keyboard), & his colleagues discovered that if they took a person’s DNA pattern and put it digitally into the keyboard it played a beautiful song. Each person’s DNA plays a unique and beautiful song.

You don’t just have a song,

You are a song.

I’ve read some various word studies of scripture, and a number of people concluded & interpreted Genesis 1, when God began to speak,

Let there be…” that He actually sang it.

We see this concept again in Zephaniah 3 17, that He sings over us. The song of the Lord resonates in our very molecules as He sings over us with rejoicing. (And He dances -spins or whirls around us singing, more precisely)

Without your song to the Lord, a vital part of you goes into in stasis-you can feel the difference, though not always recognize right away, that it’s your song that’s missing.

If you feel you’ve lost your song, then go into that place with Him- your devotions, prayer closet, etc, and listen until you hear Him singing it back to you. Worship helps bring your song back.

Others, may we guard our hearts with diligence, keep the heart fires of our song well tended, and sing a new song.

No Hold On You

I became aware…

Not aware of dreaming, but of being carried by eight or more beings who walked side by side in rows of two or three, assigned to each of my appendages. 
Their appearance was, head to foot, as though they were garbed in silhouettes, even their faces seemed clothed in black; they didn’t seem to be men exactly. I heard no sounds, not even footfalls, nor felt their grasp. 
The area was already shadows but an eye mask was swiftly put over my eyes, like they had become attuned to my becoming conscious and that I was searching my surroundings. 

Then darkness and only the sense of movement, of being carried. I began to thrash, attempting to loose myself from their nexus. 
Then I simply cried loudly from my inner being, “Daddy! Daddy!”

As the whoosh of a door, I was sucked out of their midst, as if I had become intangible…then I woke. Saved. And grateful, because dream or not, it felt intensely real. 

[For it is He] Who rescued and saved us from such a perilous death, and He will still rescue and save us; in and on Him we have set our hope (our joyful and confident expectation) that He will again deliver us [from danger and destruction and draw us to Himself]...   2 Corithians 1:10

This season I’ve been focussing on greater intimacy with God as DAD. Abba, daddy.

 I’ve determined in my heart for some time now, to feel vulnerable to nothing but the goodness of God because in the past, feeling vulnerable to the inner and the outer was my greatest awareness and suffering. 

Our soul enemy desires to intimidate and make us feel vulnerable to life and to death, to feel overwhelmed and powerless, captive to the unseen and the seen. Producing fear and trauma by sidelining us through the unexpected, are a favorite M.O. 

I believe this experience/dream is really about Dad reminding He is present in all things and if we are overwhelmed in our own capacity, beyond what we presently are or feel equipped for, He hears our cries and saves us. He really does hear, He really does come through, though we may not see Him, though we may only see the enemy.

We play many roles and functions as we mature. We may get used to being toughened soldiers and taking care of business. We may even try to “fake it til we make it” but Dad remembers what we may forget-the warrior is a child; His child. He is always present and ready to help. He attends to the voice of our cry. What we believe and feel about Dad, what we believe He thinks and feels about us is our tipping point, yet He is ever faithful.

“…and they rose up, and cast him forth out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might throw him down headlong. But he passing through the midst of them went his way.”            Luke 4:29, 30

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who hath given them unto me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”                John 10:27-30

There’s no hold on you except His. Feelings and appearances matter not, he’s a good, good father and He is mighty to save.

The Incorruptible Seed of Love

Reborn of Incorruptible Seed…

We are “Reborn” by the incorruptible seed of Love- not of human will, not of a mans desire or woman’s, but we are born of God, of His will, and receive the Fathers nature- His Divine Nature Attributes, the DNA of our heavenly Father- We recieve an incorruptible nature…

James 1:17 Every gift which is good, and every perfect boon, is from above, and comes down from the **Father, who is the source of all Light. In Him there is no variation nor the slightest suggestion of change.***

1John 1: 12 But all who have received Him, to them–that is, to those who trust in His name–He has given the privilege of becoming children of God; 13 who were begotten as such not by human descent, nor through an impulse of their own nature, nor through the will of a human father, but from God.

1Peter 1:23  For you have been begotten again by God’s ever-living and enduring word from a germ not of perishable, but of imperishable life.

1 P3:4….be a new nature within–the imperishable ornament of a gentle and peaceful spirit, which is indeed precious in the sight of God.

John 3:6 That which has been born out of the flesh is flesh and by nature, fleshly. And that which has been *born out of the Spirit, is spirit, and *by nature*, spiritual.

1 Peter 4:5 Above all continue to love one another fervently, for love throws a veil over a multitude of faults.

1 John 4:18  And, as for us, we know the love which God has for us, and we confide in it. God is love, and he who continues to love continues in union with God, and God continues in union with him. 17 Our love will be manifested in all its perfection by our having complete confidence on the day of the Judgement; because just what He is, we also are in the world. 18 Love has in it no element of fear; but perfect love drives away fear, because fear involves pain, and if a man gives way to fear, there is something imperfect in his love. 19 We love because God first loved us.

This new nature is a Love Nature, a self denying, other preserving nature.

We have been reborn, the old nature with its unnatural ways is dead, a new life has com. Therefore let us pursue love, for it is our very nature and is incorruptible and remaining pure and selfless. All other ways become unnatural to us, they begin to feel uncomfortable & at odds with our new nature, and we put them off. What once seemed natural becomes disturbing to us, foreign even-these deeds and ways that used to be our nature, no longer are our DNA, and because our being will function according to our DNA, we may put off and count foreign these old ways of being, and put on the new man-alive & reborn in the power of Love.
We have become Love, it is our nature. We cannot help but act in love, because Love is who we are….born of Love, begets Love, the incorruptible seed…

Untouchable:Transcending Death and Fear

What is your greatest hope? What would you do in this earth if you knew no fear ? What if you could never really die? & What IF you REALLY LIVED?

For fear of death, men searched out Life,

Legends of Fountains of Youth, and a Cup of the Holy Grail have expressed mans acute awareness that we were created for Life Eternally,…but have tasted of death.

We first become conscious of fear when we first experience deaths sting in various forms: doubt, pain, anger, betrayal.

We’ve political fears, financial fears, future fears,& past fears, fears of iving, fears of dying, fears of Hellos, fears of Goodbyes…fears of every kind….

Every Fear known by man begins in Fear of Death.

Fear is the first mentioned experience of Unbelief towards the ONE Who IS Himself, LIFE & LOVE.

Before mankind knew anything apart from love, we were told :

” IF you choose to Believe Me, we are One, and you will Live, the Life in me, in you also.

OR
There’s a natural alternative- one experienced by unbelief, as a fearful sense of separateness….of powerlessness.
IN HIS Incredible Love, God answered our fears of Death with Life: His Own life.

So He came clothed in mortal flesh, like us,

so we could become like him, once again; Mortality putting on Immortality, Life Swallowing up Death.

These verses share this reality with us:

“Since then the children referred to, are all alike sharers in perishable human nature, He Himself also, in the same way, took on Him a share of it, in order that THROUGH DEATH, He might render POWERLESS him who HAD Authority Over Death, that is, the devil, 15 and might SET AT LIBERTY all those who Through FEAR of DEATH had been subject to LIFELONG SLAVERY. 18 For inasmuch as He has Himself felt the pain of temptation and trial, He is also Able instantly to help those who are tempted and tried.” Hebrews 2:14-18

“Love has in it no element of fear; but Perfect love drives away fear, because fear involves PAIN, and if a man gives way to fear, there is something imperfect in his love.” 1 John 4:18

“For (believing on Jesus) you did not receive a spirit of slavery again with resulting fear, (or as another version says: you did not for a second time acquire the consciousness of being: a consciousness(awareness) which fills you with terror) BUT You Have received the Spirit who places you as adult sons (heirs of promise), by whom we cry out with deep emotion, Abba, Father. 16 The Spirit himself is constantly bearing joint-testimony with our [human] spirit that we are God’s children”. Romans 8:15

See, Jesus didn’t teach what & how to ‘heal’ or bring ‘deliverance’ so much as He taught WHO

Union with Father God is Having Life. Union with God makes man FULLY ALIVE, not only in the afterlife; but right now.

So for example: when we Choose Belief, in place of unbelief, the Life of Ages Enters our Spirit, we REVIVE IN Salvation’s Deliverance, mortality becomes immortality, our spirit is made alive to God, we are Transferred from death to life.

When His Life flows to our Mind Will & Emotions,, we receive the Power of Renewal & experience freedom of Life!

When we lay hands on the sick, His LIFE flows into bodies, overwhelming deaths effects, & we experience healing.

Any aspect of our lives that operates in Fear of death’s Shadow,  simply isn’t Yet Experiencing FULLY the Life of God.

It’s believing the One who promised is faithful To deliver, that causes us to experience His Life!! John 10:10

Where has fear of death been tempting you to taste of it? Where has He been asking us to believe Him over experience?

Whatever you feel is your need, In the words of our savior Jesus:” Dont be afraid, just believe.”

RECEIVE HIS LIFE.

I Cor:11 23 the Lord Jesus on the night during which He was being Betrayed, took bread, 24 and having given thanks, He broke it and said, This is my body which is [given] on your behalf. This be doing with a view to remembering me.

Meaning

[ that which I’ve done for you in love, which is true and to be believed and not false and not to be believed]

25 In like manner also He took the cup after the partaking of the food, saying, This cup is the covenant new in its nature, a covenant which is within the sphere of my blood. This be doing as often as you are drinking it, with a view to remembering me

For as often as you are eating this bread and drinking this cup,
the death of the Lord you are proclaiming until that time whenever He may come.

***key: by proclaiming His death,  we are announcing and demonstrating in faith to All the powers that be, & to Ourselves, that the POWER of death no longer has any dominion over us, that Jesus took back the keys of death and hades, we are Raised to New Life, we will no longer give in to fear! But being constantly led & believing, trusting in the power of Gods Life within us & love for us, and we can shout

“Death has been Swallowed up by VICTORY, where oh death is Your victory, where o death is your sting?”‘ :1 Cor. 15: 53-55

For if He didnt come in the flesh and die, then the rest isnt true either- His ressurection and ours to Life Eternally. But it is true, as history proves, and our living depends on believing.

1 John 5:4 …because everything that has been born of God is constantly coming off victorious over the world. And this is the victory that has come off victorious over the world, our faith

The power of believing His love for us, is the power of Life. His body was given for us for our healing, and His blood poured out for mankind, the true “Fountain of Life, the Cup of the Holy Grail”, removes the records of mans failings, upon their putting their trust for life in Jesus.

John 6:39 And this is the will of Him who sent me, that of all that He has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it to life on the last day. 40 For this is my Father’s will, that every one who fixes his gaze on the Son of God and believes in Him should have the Life of the Ages, and I will raise him to life on the last day.”

John 11:25 Jesus said (to her), I myself am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me, even if he die, shall live. 26 And everyone who lives and believes on me shall positively never die. Do you believe this?

Revelations1:17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as if I were dead. But He laid His right hand upon me and said, “Do not be afraid: I am the First and the Last, and the ever-living One. 18 I died; but I am now alive until the Ages of the Ages, and I have the keys of the gates of Death and of Hades! 

Untouchable the life blood and body of Jesus Christ makes us untouchable, It makes us eternally alive, full of the very Life of God and we need never Walk this world in fear again..

I Leave you with the words of the Father, ” Dont be afraid Little Flock, it is My Pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke: 12:32
