Twisted Words Lead to False Belief

Published March 10, 2017 by birdieklh

My heart is so heavy, Lord,
as people twist Your Words
Words meant to bring Healing & Hope
now being used as as vicious swords
against the Body You are building

We are called to walk in unity
as we follow after You
Yet the twisting of Your Words
even if only but a few
are rendering a gaping wound

 

The love we have for these precious ones
that have been led away
from the fullness of Your Truth
as the enemy has made them sway
We, with tears, cry out to You
and on our knees, we pray
for You to continue to woo them back
and in Your family stay

Oh, Abba, even back with Eve
the enemy twisted Your Words to deceive
Again, in the wilderness, he twisted Your Word
in tempting Jesus, our Lord
But Jesus, firm in You, stood the ground
and to You remained true

Father, some are not that strong in You,
Have not recognized YOUR voice
and when the enemy came in
they made the wrong choice
to follow after the twisted words
taken out of context
and try to take others along with them
is their sole intent

Keep Your children protected, Lord
from being lead astray
by the lies, deceit, and twisted words
that others have begun to say!


Lord, Your Word tells us that YOUR sheep KNOW Your voice! Just like, in life, as we spend time with others, we can recognize  their voice even in a crowded room, in passing and on the phone – we can only truly recognize Your voice as we stay in committed relationship with You! Spending time WITH You in worship, in prayer, in studying the Bible (within the context, not pulling things out here and there), and in quiet reflection, listening to Holy Spirit speaking into our hearts.

Those that are not quite there yet, in that relationship, Abba, I pray protection over their hearts and minds. Those that are, Abba, I pray love and mercy over the hurt and anger that wishes to arise (from our flesh) against those that have been misled. Oh, Lord, only You can correct these situations. Only You can reveal Truth. Only You can heal the wounds. We place our trust in You, alone, Abba, and we pour out our hearts in worship before You our King! Amen

Israel – News Reports & Prayer Requests

Published December 29, 2016 by birdieklh

This in the headlines today from Messianic Bible (aka news@biblesforisrael.com):

“Our Israel forces are battling ISIS on the Golan Heights.  Our ministry staff could not drive there to be with their family over Hanukkah as the army said, “turn the car around, it is too dangerous.”

The head of ISIS stated that their NUMBER ONE goal is to conquer Jerusalem
(where our ministry is located), kill all of the Jews and then take over the
whole land of Israel and kill every single Jew.

“We will find you in every house, behind every bush,
he said.”  We will kill every one of you; that is why
God brought you Jews back to Israel.””

This in today (along with a long detailed list of specific requests) from Corp Prayer Resource:

“This is a fervent call to prayer, on behalf of Israel, to all faithful
intercessors, from now until the transition of power of the US presidency on
January 20, 2017″


Dear ones, there is an urgency to our Christian responsibilities! We need to pray as never before for Israel! It is our duty!  Psalm 122:6

Here are some great resources for you to become involved in intercession:

Being Obedient, Even Unto Death

Published September 21, 2016 by birdieklh

Jesus made the choice to come to earth, to take the form of man, Whom He created, to take our sin upon Himself and die a most horrible death – on a cross. Now, most of us will not have to face such things as death on a cross . . .

but . . . There comes a time (often, many times over the years) that we must press forward in obedience to that which Christ calls us to do even when it means there might be consequences of death.

Death of dreams.

Death of relationships.

Death of ______ (fill in the blank).

 

The questions we must ask ourselves are:

  1. Is the above ________ worth more to me and my life than serving my Lord wholeheartedly?
  2. Am I quick to forgive (even though it HURTS)? Matthew 6:15, Matthew 18:21 
  3. Am I walking in the unconditional love of Christ? 1 John 3:16, 2 John 5-6
  4. Am I extending grace to others regardless of what may be said or done to me or to my character? Romans 15:5, 2 John 3
  5. And, speaking of character, am I truly exemplifying the character of my Lord by my responses?  Ephesians 5:1-2

It all boils down to choices – we cannot choose the words and actions of others, but we CAN choose how we respond to them. We can lash out, we can throw tantrums, we can argue the facts, dwell upon the negativity and possibly grow a strong root of bitterness, anger and/or resentment . . .

OR

. . . we can choose to allow the Love of God to permeate our being, and allow it to spread to others.

. . . we can choose to forgive and to pray blessings over the people, circumstances or situations involved. Matthew 5:44

. . . we can stand upon God’s Truth and allow Him to be our defense. Psalm 72:4 Jeremiah 50:34, Isaiah 51:22

Abba Father, I pray your blessings over those whom I love so dearly. Sometimes wrong choices are made, choices to listen to false lies, accusations, and the like. I choose to forgive and continue to love as You love us – unconditionally. Lord, God, pour out Your love, Your peace AND truth into the lives of my beloved friends and family. I thank You and praise You for the gift of each and every one of them in my life. I pray for reconciliation and for unity among us, for Your glory and the furthering of Your Kingdom, in Jesus Mighty Name, amen and amen!
