I knew when I received the following message today, it would be one I felt was meant to share with you. 

As a confirmation to this thought I glanced at the clock and it read..11:11. No, it wasn't a coincidence. My angelic messenger set up this scenario in perfect order.

Celestial power's are accurate, on time and Perfect. Celestial power's are orchestrated in accordance with God's will and purpose for us.

I heard someone recently say "this world is an insane asylum and it's run by insane people!" 

If we look around, that statement is not so inaccurate. On this note, I must say how at peace I can feel knowing God is not a lifeless statue that cannot do a thing for me, but God is still and always will be in charge and has his eye on me. 

He gives me joy and hope and many amazing testimonies to write about such as this one today.

It's a message right on time, of "being" in perfect timing and in the right place. It can also be seen as "22" which I wrote about in the previous blog, and for some of you, it's a confirmation that you're patience is not only honored by the Lord, but there has been a tad bit of a spiritual battle ensuing..

...below, you will see how our angelic team relay's messages and why there is at times a "delay". 

My question has been.. what is this Secret Place scripture often refer's to? After all, it's not a secret the Lord has been communicating personally to me through number sequences for some time now. 

My current address equals "11" and my roommate at this address just bought a car with the plates adding up to "11".

So why is this numeric abstraction of "space" expanding and contracting? 

We see angelic messages in these sequences and feel "alright" about it.. but did you know the angels only act in accordance with GOD! Though especially of late, I believe in urgency, God is trying to get our attention. Let's not underestimate the One sending the messenger's to our aide.

This should be reassuring as this "space" of our world, in whatever place of it we inhabit, expands and contracts only at the command of the Lord God. 

"God seals up, stops, (brings to a standstill) the hand of every man, that all men whom He had made may know His doings (His Sovereign power and their subjection to it.)" Job 37:7

Perhaps though many believe in the angelic realms, you've overlooked the creator Himself who has told a few who fell to their feet in "worship"...Don't do that, Worship GOD!"

Have you had a question in mind and picked up the Bible and turned exactly to the answer where you're eyes were directed to the answer? Perhaps this question arrived otherwise, through a neighbor who may not even know about the Lord.

I will get to the point soon, but all through scripture we see how God does things. He often speeds up the answer's that we need right now and other times, we gather and seek as if piling up knowledge and wisdom in order to recognize the answer.

Since my re-dedication to the Lord in 2018 I have fully surrendered my (very strong will) to HIM. That was a tough one but the Lord has shown me HOW to trust Him when I am faced with severe challenges. 

Not to be negative, but you may notice though difficulty is certain, there is comfort and strength given to you by the Lord through the power of the Holy Spirit. This comes only to those who have surrendered their life to Jesus Christ. 

This is a "supernatural" powerful grace we obtain as heir's now as Children of God. The world does not understand this, but as we become the testimony of the Lord through His miracles and loving graciousness, the world see's God in us.

I will also say much of the mystery of my own personal past has slowly become unraveled and makes sense which is leading me into healing wounds I've carried around in my soul. 

What I am learning by surrendering my life to the Lord Jesus Christ, is that He gently re-writes our future as we allow Him to and uses the past to show us He is lovingly guiding, protecting and providing for us. We become His witness.

Because we have a life in Christ doesn't mean we are suddenly "exempt" from difficulty or difficult situations that bend our minds and wound our spirit. 

FOR example. When you study God's Word (the Holy Bible), the Lord will show you what you are ready to hear. Though it may seem random, I don't believe anything is in God's Word. It's a powerful book of promise and hope. 

The Word has POWER, Supernatural Power. God Is not just a word we toss around or a nice reference to use in conversation, GOD is REAL. 

What He is NOT is a statue, an animal, unicorn or the moon. God created all this and He OWNS you're property. Yes, that's right.

That's is a revelation! Most people put on the brakes as to not cross the line into "God territory" when it comes to our Property. Whether it's our car, home, job, friends, lover's, business or church, He has His finger on it.

God gives and God takes away...if He wants to. He has the keys but we will never be the owner. This world and all that is in it will pass away.

Some people are not too happy about that. I use to be afraid too. In all reverential fear of the Lord, I did always know "deep down" that if God wanted to change, remove or destroy anything in my life, He could and without my permission!

Now, I am relieved at this revelation.

The old testament scripture's have information I use to avoid completely, even when I was younger and owned a bible. I never read the old testament though I judged with a yawn it wouldn't be up-to-date enough for me. I still had a bit of a "snob" attitude going on in me. This attitude got me into a lot of trouble.

Snobbery is considered a form of Pride. One of the many sin's God hates, and the reason for Lucifer was fired from his position and only see's the toes of those he torments now. Pride isn't attractive and yet it is so subtle, we need to be wise in this world to not fall into the lovely garden's where these serpents reside.

Secrets. The scripture is full of secrets .... for those who are not only ready to receive them, but who "open" the bible to receive them. Our relationship with God is clear throughout scripture. In some cases it's not so good and that isn't God's fault, if you're into casting blame.

There are requirement's to Righteousness. The New Testament is full of these requirements and God doesn't expect us to become perfect in righteousness overnight and I won't go into that here, but I have much to say about His Secrets.

Number's have a theme and a relationship with God written throughout His word. I, as many of you have told me, see number sequences on a daily basis.

When we have "direct" communion with God ( yes I said Direct), we can talk to Him ourselves and He will answer. Jesus said in John 10 there is a "thief" (satan), who is out to steal from us. The Thief comes ONLY to steal, kill and destroy.

"Because he has set his LOVE upon Me, therefore, will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name. He shall call upon Me and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him." Psalm 91:14-15

A statue or idol (whatever it is we idolize or worship) will NOT rescue or deliver us. ONLY the Living God can help us and deliver us as we surrender to Him.

I too lived for much of my life leaning towards the Yoga "fad". I will write more of this later, and I call it a "fad" because like many of us, we are immersed in the "image" of this yogic lifestyle. Consequently, I also was immersed in the practice of witchcraft and learned they are "inter-related". God "warns" us against these practices as forms of Idolatry.

Ezekiel 13:10 "Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter"

Peace? There is no peace except the peace that God gives us even in the center of a storm.

"He who dwell in the "secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty, Whose power no foe can withstand."Psalm 91:1 = "11"

(Note: the sum of these scripture, as they were given to me today.)

"He made darkness His Secret hiding place; as His pavilion round about Him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies." Psalm 18:11 = "11"

Darkness represented here is not only the shadow of the Lord near to us but especially when we are going through difficulty. It is His Presence that fill's our space ( perhaps "11" is this powerful space of hope, inspiration and assurance the Lord God has his hand on our life and situation.)

Difficulty is felt as dark nights of the soul. It is during this special place where God reveals His power, mercy and many times miracles in our lives through healing and revelation!

"A thousand may fall at you're side, and ten thousand at you're right hand, but it shall not come near you. Only a spectator shall you be | yourself inaccessible in the "secret place" of the Most High| as you witness the reward of the wicked."Psalm 91:7

"For He will give His angels charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in ALL you're ways."

I believe what God say's to us through His Word. It is my impression also that many who do Not study God's word can learn from other's who Do, although having a personal message directed by God as you look into His word is an amazing miracle as I have witnessed. 

Many times there is no way I could have turned to a particular scripture for an answer as I am still learning the Word through study on my own. I am amazed every day that I have a Supernatural Power of our Sovereign God who see's and know's my thoughts and cares deeply about my concerns. 

It is my sense as I receive inspiration and messages from the Lord, that I must also share what I have received, for I believe as brother's and sister's in Christ, we are instructed to encourage, teach and lift up each other with the powerful messages of the Lord.

My prayer is for those of you who face difficulty, as we all do and will, that you will surrender you're life and you're will to Him Who can help you.

Daniel 10:12"Fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that you set you're mind and heart to understand and to humble yourself before you're God, you're words were heard, and I have come as a consequence of and in response to you're words."

( the angel Gabriel is speaking to Daniel here)

"BUT, the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me for twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief of the celestial princes, came to help me, for I remained there with the king of Persia.

20"Then he said, Do you know why I have come to you? 
And now I will return to fight with the hostile prince of Persia; and when I have gone, behold, the hostile prince of Greece will come."

21"But I will tell you what is inscribed in the writing of truth or the Book of Truth. There is no one who hold with me and strengthens himself against these hostile "spirit" forces except Michael, you're prince national guardian angel."

You see, Daniel was greatly beloved, as told by the angel Gabriel who appeared to him as He prayed to God. These two chief angels were designated to deliver messages and to fight on Daniel's behalf. He also let him know when one battle is over, another one is waiting.

This is our life as there is an ongoing "spiritual war" for our souls. It is not a new thing, but as our society increases in violent and blatant lack of love and opposition towards God or anyone who represents the one true God, there will be a spiritual fight for our souls.

But You are not alone in this fight. God see's and is vindicating for you and whatever it is you're going through. Allow true peace of the Lord to guide you as you're celestial allies protect, mediate and fight for you.

Several day's ago I was woke in the night to receive an angelic message. Often, this is how I receive instruction and answer's and inspiration from God. 

He sends His angelic messenger's to us when we ask for guidance, and I have been asking for much lately!

Some of you are noticing educational suggestions come to you through you're dream state or being woke up to remember what you were told or shown by you're angelic messenger's as sent by the Lord.

Yes, for many of us seeking the Lord, this is going to be carrying on as time progresses and especially this time in which the heavenly directives intensify. I believe we sense in our spirit this urgency, it's rapid approach of time the Lord has indicated of in scripture.

Yes, the end is in motion. We don't have to search to know it is not so far off. 

We hear, see and witness the workings of the supernatural of the heavenly places. 

These places are where you are in the physical. Where you stand, God shows up. 

He can provide from no-thing, perform a work out of anything. He is God, the Miracle Worker.

I have witnessed this in my life and throughout my life.

"Thus say's the Lord of hosts; If you will walk in My ways and keep My charge, then also you shall rule My house and have charge in my courts, and I will give you access to My presence and places to walk among these who stand here."Zechariah 3:6

He is a supernatural (ICorinthians 10:14 "produced by the supernatural power of God, without natural instrumentality)force to be reckoned with and what an amazing thing to know His power works in us, through us, and on our behalf.

I Corinthians 8:6 "Yet for us there is only ONE God, the Father, Who is the SOURCE of ALL Things, and for whom we have life, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through and by whom are all things and through and by whom we exist."

These number sequences of 22:22, 22, 2:22 have been in my radius especially of late. What about for you?

A few nights ago when I woke in the night I saw a huge 22 in my vision. In the morning as I studied and prayed I was guided to the following scripture.

Angel number 22 is believed to be a highly powerful number and a sign from your guardian angel not to neglect your spiritual path and purpose. 

Isaiah 22:22"And the key of the house of David, I will lay upon his shoulder's; he shall open and no one shall shut, he shall shut and no one shall open."

Now, for some of you who wonder why things are not happening fast enough, the answer could be here. That God holds the key to open or close door's. Many of you are being protected and provision is provided in perfect timing. The right job will be right on time and you're circumstances are changing...

... have you asked for what you desire the Lord to give you? Ask and keep on asking. Scripture tell's us to continue to ask and seek that which you desire. 

"Not by might, nor by power, by by My Spirit, say's the Lord of host." Zechariah 4:6

Sometimes I have asked and time has changed my mind. When I look back upon some of the things I desperately wanted and didn't get, I was disappointed at the time. But what did happen is I received what I needed when I needed it and upon hindsight I can honestly say I am grateful I didn't get what I thought I wanted.

As God's children, He takes care of us.  

Lately, I made a promise to myself I am going to enjoy the wait, for this can be difficult when in truth, it is where God stand's closer and as we wait, we can draw upon His strength and do it gracefully.

In fact, I told the Lord if I have to wait I am going to have as much fun as possible! I also reminded the Lord I have been obedient to His instruction and requests...hint hint!

Like a good Father, He is. He wants us to have a good life, and enjoyment. His Word tells us though we do go through difficult times, he give us PEACE in the midst and that Joy in our heart as we trust Him when we cannot see ahead.

When you're friends or family doesn't understand how you're hard work isn't generating what they think it should. Or, if you wonder this, remember God know's what He is doing. He is guiding and protecting you as well as teaching, counseling and inspiring you along the way. 

DO you're best and give the rest to the Lord. When the door shuts, he has you covered. 

I have had many doors shut when I thought they should have been opened and visa versa. We see the supernatural workings of God when there is impossibility in front of us. We also see that the ONLY source of our provision is from Him.

When the world is fearing the worst, God is in complete control. He can and will do as He purposes and pleases.

Job 23:13-14"And what He wants to do, that He does." " For He performs that which He has planned for me, and many such matter's He is Mindful."

That should be an encouragement. Job had many distresses. One after another, but God was still present. 

"HE knows the way that I take."

Job 22:21 "Acquaint now yourself with Him|agree with God and show yourself to be conformed to His will| and be at peace; by that good shall come to you."

22"Receive, I pray you, the law and instruction from His mouth and lay up His words in you're heart."

Peace is an instruction from God. We are to seek after peace, be at peace and keep the peace.

John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

Because the sequences of 22, 222, 2222 have been showing up daily, the also come to represent 44 or 8. This is the Master Healer and foundational energy of structure.

What I gather from this is not only that the Lord is with us but we as a country can rely on Him as our provider, counselor and Justice.

I have been receiving concerns even in my sleep over the disruptions in the peace of our society and the structures and governing systems in control which wickedness seems the rule of the day. 

As we see in scripture, a replay of the day's of old are being recreated and God Has given the last word, so there's no point in following the opposition and falling for the demonic delusion's. 

"How then can you comfort me with empty and futile words, since in you're replies there lurks falsehood?" Job 21:34

KNOW the Word of God and follow it. Know it by studying His Word daily. Now more than ever, we need to rely on the Lord rather than men and take action on the Will of God for our life. For in following HIM, He gives us Life this world can never give us.

Psalm 16:5 " The Lord is my chosen and assigned portion, my cup; You hold and maintain my lot."

"And make the Almighty you're Gold and the Lord you're precious Silver treasure."

"You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light of God's favor shall shine upon you're ways."

"HE will even deliver the one for whom you Intercede who is not innocent; yes, he will be delivered through the cleanness of you're hands."
[Job 22:25,28,30]

THIS particular blog may be a bit more blatant than usual as I delve deeper into the guise of psychological manipulation | abuse.

We see in scripture how one King desired to be enticed by only positive prophetic predictions, which most of us are aware we can find just about anywhere. 

Compromise presents itself in the subtle enticements, though not uncommon, is commonplace and yet, should it be in our Christian walk with God.

We often find theme's in "group" atmosphere, even within the church. In large gatherings or even festivals, satanic warfare is present. Seen in Luke 22: 3-6, satan used "fear" as an influence at the time of the passover festival, when Many people would be gathered together.

Fear is evident in the theme's of competition, relationship issues and evil scheme's as is the topic today.

I cannot be quiet anymore of this malignant and vulgar attempt to diminish our value and purpose as God's beloved. Where are the biblical teacher's who can be that safe haven for those who have no one to turn to for guidance or clarity when we are hushed for threats to our life.

As we see, the problem with this is if we see only positive and ignore the negative, we may not only be caught off-guard upon attack or emotionally manipulative schemes, we are not well equipped in the knowledge of handling it.

Normally, I'm not too ruffled about annoyances. At a certain point and from certain people, you know what to expect and how to turn you're back rather than let it disrupt the peace. On the other hand, I Hate Lying and manipulative scheming which sadly seems the norm of the day but I cannot stay quiet when I see this as spiritual warfare and it's affect on us.

People who cannot tell the truth are setting themselves up for their own demise. It would seem logical to most, but lying presents itself in many forms. It's little, subtleness that slowly elevates.

Scheming. Manipulation. Control. Embellishment. Exaggeration. Slander.

I discovered something new in a story about Jehoshaphat in the II Chronicles chapter's 18, 19 and 20.

In short, King Ahab wanted to hear and to believe a lie rather than the true word of God. He wanted only good news. Not only that, he only chose prophets who would deliver only good news and if they spoke the truth from God, he hated and called them evil.

Doesn't it sound like he was a tad Prideful to think he can outsmart God? 

We see similar shades of pride in Narcissistic Manipulation and abuse, or shall I say Psychological abuse. It' is impossible to cover this topic in one page, but I will be covering it in depth later.

God's entire Word provides security and soundness. For those who Study God's Word learn directly from God and hence God's advice and counsel  is indeed "sound". What goes into the mind influences or thoughts and actions.

God say's to put anything or anyone other than God first is considered Idolatry, the worship of said. Let you're yes be yes and you're no be no. In other words, chose one or the other.

"Who shall entice King Ahab of Israel, that he may go "up" and "fall"?

Enticement, according to Merriam Webster, to "attract or tempt by offering pleasure or advantage; arousing hope or desire."

"Then there came a "lying spirit" in the mouth's of ALL his( King Ahab's) prophets. And the Lord said, You shall entice him and also succeed. Go forth and do so."

I have to wonder if this is one example of "giving them over to a reprobate mind. God does indicate if we insist on following the way's of the world (evil ).

We see the enticement preceded the luring trap of deception through a lying spirit. The "evil one"(satan) is on stand-by, so to speak, waiting for us to fall into the subtle traps he set's for us. 

On the other hand, the scripture get's a bad wrap from people who have not read it and yet they prefer to read or listen to other Channeled material which is NOT from the hand of God. 

"NOW you see, the Lord put a lying spirit in the mouths of you're prophets; and the Lord has spoken evil concerning you." II Chronicles 18:22 

It seems to me it was accounted to the King as evil in the sight of the Lord that he chose to prefer his be right in his own eyes, to prefer to be enticed with only hearing "positive" messages rather than believe God??? 

There is good and evil in this world. We see them both but if we look away from darkness and pretend there is only peace, we ignore humanity and also possibly ignore the commands of the Lord to love and care for each other, especially the poor and the needy. 

To pretend is to set up false hope and also to become a false teacher. We cannot be a testimony to other's if we pretend there are no struggles. 

The Lord promised there would be difficulty. We all have it. Good and bad is the ebb and flow of living. Like the ocean waves rolling in and bringing debrie from the depths, it also brings lovely shells and sometimes heart-shaped stones.

All things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose. I have to remind my self it's attitude and how we perceive difficulty, but also knowing God is for us, not against us, He is our rock and our strong defense against the enemy.

So because King Ahab didn't want to hear the truth, he took it out on Jehoshaphat.

The blame-game has been around since the beginning. You'll see how blaming another whether it is through psychological manipulation or narcissistic abuse, God see's this and abuse of any kind as evil. 

You see, Jehoshaphat sought and yearned for the Lord and walked in the way's of the Lord.

What happen's next is a picture of what we have labeled today as psychological manipulation or emotional abuse. "Aims to change the behavior or perception of others through indirect, deceptive, or underhanded tactics. By advancing the interests of the manipulator, often at another's expense, such methods could be considered exploitative and devious."

The perpetrator can be someone you know and wouldn't suspect. I think that's the goal from my observation and research. To wear a false-self in social situations. The done the mask in public but remove it behind closed doors and exert abusive power and control over the innocent. 

King Ahab disguised himself during attack to purposely place Jehoshaphat at risk of attack in his stead. He premeditated future infliction of harm on a child of God, Jehoshaphat, in order to save his life through a deceitful scheme.

However, God did intervene by confounding and confusing the armies and they killed each other! 

As God tells us, He will vindicate us. 

People with evil intent to harm one of God's children are not hiding.

"There is a time in which one man has power over another to his own hurt or to the other mans." Ecclesiastes 8:9 

"He who digs a pit for other's will fall into it, and whoever breaks through a fence or stone wall, a serpent will bite him" Ecclesiastes 10:8

And Ahab said to Jehoshaphat, I will disguise myself and will go to the battle, but you put on you're royal robes. When the captains saw Jehoshaphat they thought it was King Ahab and turned to fight against him....but Jehoshaphat cried out to the Lord and God MOVED THEM TO DEPART FROM HIM seeing it was not King Ahab.

But .... a "certain man" ( an unknown person ) drew his bow at a venture and "missed". Instead it hit King Ahab and killed him!

Now, if you think that's a coincidence, this certain man must have been an angel of the Lord. This unidentified person among the crowd. I wonder if he woke up that day knowing his "lack of skill?" would be right on purpose!

God is just and right in ALL His ways. We can trust Him with All of our life. He is with us in the presence of our enemies.

God is next to us and know's the difficulty and the circumstances that seem out of our control. This unknown person just happened to be a bad shot and hit the target God had in mind. 

Never underestimate if you feel you are unnoticed, just a person in the crowd. Remember David killed Goliath, the giant without all the fancy weaponry because he was skilled with a sling-shot and became King.

Good comes to those who are in Christ. We all will see struggle, but we have an invincible army around us, the Lord who fights with us and for us.

The wisest man to ever live wrote this:

"There was a little city with a few men in it. And a great king came against it and besieged it and built great bulwarks against it. But there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city." Ecclesiastes 9:14-15

Psychological manipulation is intended to make you forget you are a valuable soul who was born with a purpose

That you are made to believe otherwise is a total lie!

 "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."II Timothy 1:7

These attacks are pure satanic. Satan attacks the mind and those who are attacking the innocent will be called out by God. 

Yes, we are to love our enemies and bless them. This is a command of God. It free's our spirit to allow God to not only help deliver us, shield us and restore us for we are able to use our difficulty to strengthen and encourage other's facing similar situations.

God is our vindicator. There is no lost time in God's kingdom as He promises to restore us and renew us. 

"The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army." Habakkuk 3:39

"For by You I can run through a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall." Psalm 18:29

The stories in God's Word encourage us to see how God works on our behalf, that He fights our battles if we let him.

Now, while I've provided a brief summary from God's Word of one particular attack upon this Godly man Jehoshaphat, it reflects very real similarities to spiritual warfare of today.

As scripture lays out in Ephesians 6:12, 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I will be offering more on this type of conversation to offer insight into how we might become unknowingly a target of these evil devices.

The Word of God instructs us to keep our focus on Him and the power of what we think about or put in our minds. He also instructs us to be vigilant and sober-minds as to not be caught unaware of the evil scheme's of satan.

While I believe God's Word as He directs us to Love those who hate and detest us, the needs of Christian's who find themselves involved in abusive circumstances and for many, threats of danger are real.

It isn't so important how we label attack, we know this "spiritual war" has alway's been and will continue, which is why it is so invaluable to our soul's to be invested not in the distractions of today and social media, but to keep our eye's and heart's on the Lord, and to study together with our brethren. 

Each of us have a purpose and a gift to use for and in service to God, I pray we know by living on purpose, God will continue to hold us up and provide all we need.

Psalm 20
"MAY THE Lord answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob set you up on high and defend you; Send you help from the sanctuary and support, refresh and strengthen you from zion.
May He grant you according to you're heart's desire and fulfill all you're plans."

Psalm 21: 11-12
"For they planned evil against You; they conceived a mischievous plot which they are not able to perform. For You will make them turn their backs; You will aim Your bow of divine justice at their faces. Be exalted Lord, in You're Strength; we will sing and praise You're power."

SCRIPTURE tells us "NO Weapon formed against you shall prosper."Isaiah 54:17 

I'm talking about "spiritual warfare" and wickedness formed against us as in "who" is attacking you and in what particular form?

We might understand this as God has indicated as He did with Joshua saying "tomorrow go out and take you're position, stand you're ground and be still and Know Who is on you're side. In fact, just go out and let ME do what seems impossible for you to do. But more than that, Don't fight. Just go and take you're If you're going to fight.

In other words, stand in the power of GOD. When the Lord tells us to do something and we do it, we are "in" the hand of God. He gives us the power to do what He asks. 

Joshua did just that and with a huge army coming against him with the few people "left" to fight with Joshua, God 'CONFOUNDED" the opposition. Shall we say, the Lord confused them and they ended up slaying "each other" from their own army.

Be still and know that I AM GOD! The Lord does exactly what He say's. 

"The plans of the "mind" and orderly thinking belong to man, but from the Lord comes the Wise answer of the tongue." Proverbs 16:1

Unlike the attacks we face, God see's you and I who are His Beloved. For a "time" it may appear God is not helping us, but He is a Just God, the Supreme Authority over the situation and YOU are his child who He will protect and love.

Spiritual attack is clear but in case you wonder here are a few ways satan's armies "oppose"us. Of course, opposition is ONLY what he wants when it's comes to the Child of God, You and I. The crafty serpent, as I'll call him here, has no legs like us. He is skilled in deception and good at Slander.

He ONLY lies. He cannot tell the truth, it is not in him. Let's just say, satan wants YOU to look like the fool but he turns things around at first and promises to give you the best of everything. 

If you believe him and fall for the trap, it will be you who falls into a pit. This is what the deceiver wants.

At the onset of potentially doing what we know we shouldn't, there is a moment where we can make a choice. You have been there. 

I would say Joshua was under Fire to chose between his way or God's way. 

Much like any of our circumstances today. The pressure to give in, to conform, to do unethical practices or lose our job, to sell things by lying or deceit... God honor's us when we risk  a loss by doing as God commands and telling the truth. 

God will take care of us and we can rest assured justice will be done. I know this because I've seen it in my life.

"Be not afraid of sudden terror and panic, nor of the stormy blast or the storm and ruin of the wicked when it comes, for YOU will be guiltless!" Proverbs 3:25

"For the Lord shall be you're confidence, firm and strong, and shall keep you're foot from being caught in a trap or some hidden danger!" Proverbs 3:26

If Joshua had decided to overrule God's command, he would have sided with the army of disobedience and perhaps we would not have read about such a great defeat.

The Lord asks us to be obedient many times which do not make sense. We find ourselves in the middle of difficulty. He might ask us to give something up, walk away from, or stay where we do not understand why. 

"No evil, misfortune, or calamity shall come upon the righteous, but the wicked shall be filled with evil, misfortune and calamity. LYING LIPS are extremely disgusting and hateful to the Lord, but they who deal faithfully are His delight." Proverbs 12:21-22

God tells us "ALL things work together for those who love God ( In other words, put God FIRST), and are called according to His Purpose!"

All these things, even difficulty has a purpose. God uses to benefit you and to be a Testament to Who He is. 

But WHY does God do this? 

HOW many people do not truly believe there is a God? How many people shun the Lord as if He isn't the creator of not only this universe but you and I? How many "christians" do not have faith in the Living God, who need to hear and see the works of the Lord?

God uses our difficulty to show He Loves those who believe in Him, who Trust in Him even in spite of the circumstances.

I have been in many situations that make no sense. I would say I'm a good person who is conscientious about my conduct towards other's with no intention to harm. 

God tells us to focus on HIM at all times. Satan however, seems to be standing by in the midst with attempts to pull us into conflict with other's, through attacking our thoughts  and surrounding us with lies and people who lie to us and about us.

The Slander. Jealous attacks. Lawsuits. LYING.

"EVERYONE proud and arrogant in heart is disgusting, hateful and exceedingly offensive to the Lord; be assured, they will not go unpunished." Proverbs 16:5

"For among MY people are found wicked men; who lie in wait; the set a trap to catch men." Jeremiah 5:26

Does anyone speak truth anymore? Did you know "embellishment" is LYING? Exaggerating a story is telling a lie. 

"Food gained by "deceit" is sweet to a man, but afterward his mouth is filled with gravel." Proverbs 20:17

I stay far away from third-party information, gossip and people who do these things. 

"He who sends a message by the hand of a fool cuts off the feet of satisfactory delivery and drinks the damage. " Proverbs 26:6

In other words, delivering a message from a foolish person in any way is unwise. Walk away from getting involved in third-party communications. Be wary of what you read in social media. 

EVIL work is the tool of deception. The Internet can be used for good, but for the most part, it's a tool of torment and destruction, slander and lies towards innocent, harmless people! 

God will deal justly as He is a Just God with the final WORD.

"Whoever despises the word and counsel of God brings destruction upon himself, but he who reverently fears and respects the commandment of GOD is rewarded." Proverbs 13:13

I won't try to begin to tell you how much God hates evil, especially targeting His Children. But you can read for yourself throughout the Bible, the similarity of wars against the Righteous then are similar to  what happens today among our society...but worse. 

While the righteous are living in the will of God, satan is standing by just waiting to accuse you of doing wrong. As we see in the case of Joshua.

Ecclesiastes 10: 8 "He who digs a pit for other's will fall into it, and whoever breaks through a fence or a stone wall, a serpent will bite him."  Yes. Who's intent toward you as God's beloved child is for harm, they will drink their own poison.

It may "seem" for a time those who attack you succeed, they are heaping coals of fire upon their own head, as scripture tells us. There will come a time and a season for justice to be served.

We reap what we sow.

"The the guiding angel showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at Joshua's right hand to be his adversary and to accuse him." Zechariah 3:1

"Ecclesiastes 10:2 "A wise man's heart turns him toward his right hand, but a fool's heart toward's his left".

See, God's right hand is where his children stand, in righteousness. See, along with us, the adversary also will stand. Satan has no "reason" to stand on the un-righteous (left), where those who already live in opposition to God stand. 

But here you will see how God fights for us.

"And the Lord said to Satan, The Lord Rebuke You, O Satan! Is not this a brand(Joshua) plucked out of the fire?"

God rescued Joshua but as you see, Joshua was "in" the fire. The "fire" is always to purify us and burn away what is not useful in our spirit. It is this sanctification and the leaving behind all that hinder's us from the Love of Christ. Fire frees us to look ahead to the new growth and leaving the old stuff from who we were before our new life in Christ emerged as believer's and walking with the Lord.

King Solomon who the Lord Blessed to be the wisest to ever lived said this. He had anything and everything but found only the rich communion and fellowship with God would satisfy.

"For who can eat or who can have enjoyment any more than I can. For to the person who pleases Him GOD gives wisdom and knowledge and JOY; but, to the sinner He gives the work of gathering and heaping up, that he may give to the one who Pleases God!" Ecclesiastes 2:25-26

The Lord provides for us. He wants us to be satisfied and joyful in our life. But to the unrighteous, they work to give to the righteous. This is God's universe. He provides us with goodness but to the unrighteous, it's all in vain.

"I said in my heart, God will judge the righteous and the wicked, for there is a time appointed for every matter and purpose and for every work." Ecclesiastes 3:17

Everything has an appointment by God. It doesn't matter what things "appear", God is in control. He sees, knows, hears. 

"I said in my heart regarding the subject of the son's of men(the sinner's; those who live in opposition to God), GOD is trying | separating and Sifting | them, that they may see that by themselves they are but like beasts." Ecclesiastes 3:18

I have a story to share about a man I fell in love with at one time in my life. 

I wasn't walking in the Lord then, but thank God, HE was still walking with me! 

This time was one of the greatest lesson's I learned in how God works, and how He does what He says.

The following proverbs sums up how the story went and the end results of my love and I but it more closely depicts the protection of God's children even in the midst of chaos.

Proverbs 23:6-8 "Eat not the bread of him who has a hard, grudging, and envious eye, neither desire his dainty foods. For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. As one who reckons, he says to you, eat and drink, yet his heart is NOT with you but is grudging the cost.

8.The morsel in which you have eaten you will vomit up, and you're complementary words will be wasted."

God loves the wicked and the righteous alike. He tells us the rain falls upon the head of the righteous and the sinner alike. He is no respecter of person's.

So, as I go on with the story, let me clarify this. God loves all of us. What He doesn't love is the SIN we commit. Like a good Father, He chasten's (disciplines) those whom He loves and for all of us, sometimes it really hurts.

It's for our good and not for evil, for He is Good.

Graphic Warning: I had a nightmare of a dream my beau vomited up a bloody arm. Until recently I didn't understand really what it meant.

Looking back, no longer in the relationship, I knew at the time I was entering a relationship full of "red flags." You know, those "gut" feelings or hunches telling you, you should stay away.

The Home usually represents our inner world. At least from what I've lived and observed. God uses a similar depiction throughout His word describing the House of the Lord as also a reflection of our soul.

People tell us what we want to hear and often avoid by "omission" what they know we don't want to hear. In this case, what I should have heard didn't happen until I was so in love, I still ignored the obvious red flags....and honestly, I wanted to ignore them. HE was worth it.

Okay. You get it. 

I wonder at God's humor at our foolishness. Yet I don't wonder that He know's us more than we know ourselves, and... He knows how this will end.

There are no "if's" with God knowing us. Here, I used my choice to stay to also begin praying for my beau. I prayed because I knew only God could intervene with my heart so sealed up in love with this guy. [I don't know how else to say it.]

We loved the same things. He was good to me and we both felt crazy in love. It was equal and fun. On the outside, it looked good. We hated being apart. When we were together we had to be touching, holding hands. 

It appeared he had everything going for him physically and materially. But like many of us, the interior of our House or soul is in need of repair. 

My friend and I were both in much need of repair. We bonded in sin and loved every minute of it. 

God tells us we are responsible for the choices we make and we do makes mistakes. 

As we follow Christ and stay in His will He will use all our mistakes to His glory and as He say's All things work together for the good to those who are in Christ Jesus.

My friend wasn't a believer. His acquisitions were through wicked, unethical means. 

Nothing is a secret to God. 

Though on the outside he was a great person, he still was a sinner in need of God. But I, well, I was a Christian in my youth but as an adult I Lived in separation from the Lord in favor of doing my own Will rather than His.

Because God loves us all, He may give and take as He pleases to get our attention. 

As you may wonder, this is how the story went some time after I gathered the strength to leave.

Within a few year's after I left and moved far away so be sure I wouldn't return, I learned he was accused of attempted murder and lost everything.

God is merciful. Yes, He is.  

Things may for a moment appear the opposite but God is a loving Father who know's what is best for us. We are souls in need of a loving Savior. If we continue to ignore and look away from God, he will do what He needs to do in our life to get us to Look to Him.

Things in this world are empty, momentary things that create a void unable to be filled. We are not able to find the joy in the small things without knowing the Lord, having a personal relationship with Him as our loving father and the Almighty to be Revered God.

There came that time God gave me strength to leave someone every part of my soul wanted to cling to. I knew it was God, because I sought the Lord more than ever during and after this time.

"For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking the door will be opened." Matthew 7:8

"I sought the Lord and required Him, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears." Psalm 34:4

"There is nothing better for a man than that he should eat and drink and make himself enjoy good in his labor. Even this, I have seen, is form the hand of GOD." For to the person who pleases Him GOD gives wisdom and knowledge and joy; but to the sinner He gives the work of gathering and heaping up, that he may give to one who pleases God." This also is vanity and a striving after the wind and a feeding on it."

Another family lives in my friends house. I visited them. Someone else has acquired all that my friend worked for. 

God is no respecter of person's, the scripture says. He loves us all and for any of us who are in difficulty, God will help us in whatever way is best for us.

Cry out to the Lord. It is the heart that cries to the Lord in desperate times. It is He Who can take our life and turn it around regardless of our err and ways. We are not perfect, nor does God expect that.

"God, you know me more than I know myself. You see the day ahead and how it might play out. Keep me safe and preserve my spirit in whatever circumstance that arises. Guide me into truth, I trust you above all the voices vying for my attention in this world today. Thank you for blessing my life and the path ahead which only you know. I surrender this life to You My Lord and Savior. Carry me when I cannot stand and lift me up to live fully in you're presence God." I ask for you're Holy Spirt to live and abide in me that I may desire to follow you all the day's of my life...In the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen! "
