What is the Sound you Carry?

Lesson 24 
I was watching the trumpet player removing a valve and pouring oil into it, when the Holy Spirit quickened this revelation to my 
spirit:  In the running around of busyness and allowing ourselves to become stressed out, many have become dry and squeaky, 
full of murmuring and complaining, criticism and strife and have lost the sound of praise to our Lord.  

When we take a moment to listen to the sound that is coming forth from our inmost being, we can quickly assess the state of 
our oil level.  If we have become squeaky, brassy and abrasive, the "sound" we bring forth does not bring glory to our King and 
it is grieving the Holy Spirit. Let's humble ourselves before the King and be replenished in the silence to be filled with fresh oil, 
carrying the sound of His Presence.  

Eph. 5:18 "
And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;  Speaking to yourselves in 
psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;  Giving thanks always for 
all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ
".

"Be being filled with the Spirit", speaks of a continual drinking of the new wine and the result is that we will overflow with songs of 
praise, having a melody of thankfulness in our hearts and a joy unspeakable, shining forth His glory!
Let us be like the five wise virgins, having a full oil supply for our lamps and some to spare while awaiting the coming of our 
Bridegroom.  

Come to think of it:  those wise virgins must have been worshipers, singing praises to Him day and night - full of righteousness, 
peace and joy in the Holy Ghost - Kingdom ambassadors! God's eyes are looking for worshipers.......!

Impatience - The fruit of the Spirit of Jealousy

Lesson 23

Patience is a fruit of the Spirit of God and something that we all have to develop in our desire to be transformed into the image of Christ.

In my case it took a long time and many tests until God gave me a glorious key to overcome impatience. It was a major stumbling block in my life and God was so gracious to come to my rescue:

I was in a very trying situation in Tel Aviv airport, when my luggage (which was perfectly packed), was taken "apart" by security and bundled back into my suitcase in total disorder. 

My films were ripped out of my camera and all the undeveloped films were destroyed. Inexplicably I started to laugh at the absurdity of the situation I was perfectly content to wait till they finished. The joy of the Lord gave me victory!  Then all of a sudden I started receiving the red carpet treatment, with favor and benefits everywhere!   

I caught it! The joy of the Lord is my strength and causes me to have favor! Wow! 
Laughter in the face of the enemy is a weapon of destruction on our lips!

Since then I have had many other such situations, always remembering my secret weapon and every time I walked out with blessings and benefits! 

Today I was ministering to someone on the phone, when the Lord revealed the cause of a sudden injury. The root cause was that my sister has been having a lot of frustrating situations around her and she started getting impatient with the Lord for not having answered her prayers yet; and also got impatient with everyone else around her. This left her discontented, frustrated, irritated, murmuring and complaining (anybody been there?) - an open door for the enemy to trip her up, causing a fall with several injuries. 

After the glory light of God's revelation shone into this area in her soul, exposing the work of the enemy, she repented and received victory too, together with a physical miracle!  Peace and joy flooded her soul. His Kingdom came! 

Hallelujah!

When we enter into the rest of the Lord, we leave everything, including timing in His hands, putting our full trust in Him. Assured that He works out everything together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purposes.  Hallelujah!

If you have experienced impatience with all the side-effects of it, bring it before the Lord in repentance.  Then hand over these things to the Lord and trust Him to work it out for your good. Then count it all joy, rejoicing in His goodness and grace over your life.


Patience is also an attribute of love (1 Cor.13). Let's grow into it and let it have its perfect work in us until we are complete in Him.

James 1:4 (KJV)

But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
Patience (hupomone): cheerful (or hopeful), endurance, constancy, enduring, patient continuance.
perfect (teleios): complete (in various applications of labor, growth, mental and moral character); of full age, perfect.
entire : complete in every part, i.e.perfectly sound, entire, whole.

Destroy the Records of Wrongs!

Lesson 22

Be quick to release every negative input that comes to you!  The enemy wants to contaminate you with the wrongs of others to defile your temple so that the anointing runs out.  


When others relate their negative experiences, stay in God's presence, "listening in" until you receive a word of wisdom on your lips. Do not join yourself to gossip, slander, supposition, prejudice, etc. to become a participant of darkness.  If you have done so, repent and ask the Lord to wash you of all defilement in your soul.

Then dismiss that negative information so that you do not become a carrier of negativity in turn.

Also watch out for personal concerns, subtle fears and worries that can take up space in your consciousness.  Ask the Holy Spirit to put His spotlight on it.  Then ask forgiveness and let it go!

Recently, I was worshiping, I saw Jesus standing in brilliant light - so bright that I couldn't see His features.Then light beams started shooting out from Him into all the areas in my heart that contained shadows. The light beams were popping the stress points and "issue-consciousness" and I was saturated in light! 


Malachi 4:2 Amplified Bible (AMP)


But for you who fear My name [with awe-filled reverence] the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go forward and leap [joyfully] like calves [released] from the stall.

You can ask the Lord to do that for you!  Simply identify your stress points and concerns and let His glory light heal your soul with resurrection power.

Staying in the Portal of His Glory Presence

Lesson 21

We all get confronted with the flesh - in others and in ourselves. 

This morning the Lord impressed on my mind that, just as we have to build our physical immune system, we can build a strong immune system against the negative things around us, where God's glory is our defense.

How do we do this?

The first thing is to take up your cross daily, reckoning yourself dead to sin and alive to God in righteousness (Romans 6:11).  That means, my thoughts are taken captive in obedience to Christ (2 Cor 10:5) and I simply refuse to think negatively.  If that door is closed on the enemy, my meditation will be sweet and peaceful, setting the mood for my emotions to be joyful and peaceful. It is an act of my will!

When my heart is set in the open portal of prayer and worship unto the Most High, my mind, will, emotions and atmosphere will be saturated in the glory, which becomes a defense around me. This leaves no opening for the enemy to infiltrate.

Being about my Father's business is my occupation.

When something negative comes at me, it simply bounces off.  But at the same time, God's glory Presence must increase so that it invades the atmosphere around me, setting the stage for miracles.

The Garden of Your Heart

Lesson 20



THE FERTILE SOIL OF YOUR HEART 
A Word by Brian and Julie Price

I believe many of you desperately long to find WHERE you are in YOUR PROCESS. The ANSWER LIES in what God is doing IN YOU. It’s FOUND in the GARDEN of your heart.



              Many feel as though nearly EVERYTHING has been TAKEN from them; not just the weeds, but plants that seemed to produce a harvest were RIPPED AWAY from you, root and all, and tossed aside.


WHAT could the Holy Spirit, who tends to our garden’s with us, be doing? It’s as if He left the gate open and the enemy came in and took everything. NOT SO! The Lord is doing a deep work in you. The health of your soil, the garden of your heart, is KEY.

FERTILE SOIL EQUALS ABUNDANT LIFE!

So what makes fertile soil? Fertile soil comes from BROKEN DOWN and DECOMPOSED matter. THEN- it can release new energy; bringing new life, that produces a harvest like never before! Fertile soil has the ability to supply essential plant nutrients and water in adequate amounts and proportions for plant growth and reproduction; as well as REMOVING TOXIC SUBSTANCES; which INHIBITS PLANT GROWTH! Sufficient soil DEPTH for adequate ROOT GROWTH and WATER RETENTION are a result of cultivating FERTILE SOIL.

Can’t you hear it? He uses EVERYTHING! If you ALLOW Him to tend to your garden, if you will just SURRENDER FULLY to Him already; allowing Him to do this deep work, He will take those things that nearly broke you, even the dead and decomposed things that you have rendered useless, and He will use it for HIS GLORY!

You’re being readied for your ROOTS to go down DEEP! You will live from a deep, intimate place with Holy Spirit. From this place, the water of His presence REMAINS.

You now retain and live from the water of His presence! You’re beyond the goosebumps and waves of His power. You’re living from His deep, abiding presence, because your heart has been readied for it. Your soil is now fertile!

The garden of your heart is in amazing season with the Holy Spirit. It may look lifeless in this resting season, but it’s far from it! You are being prepared for the long haul, that will bring a large and lasting harvest for Him. It will reproduce a healthy reflection of Him in the earth, many times over!

He’s tending your soil; pulling weeds and permeating the soil of your heart with His presence is a new and powerful way. Those things that have broken you down, all the decomposed stuff in your life that seems fruitless and pointless to you, yeah, that stuff. It’s actually being used by God to make your heart, your soil, more fertile than ever before. All the impurities, even those toxic alignments you thought were of Him, ANYTHING that was CONTAMINATING YOUR HEART, and affecting YOUR GROWTH, HAD TO GO!

But know this…

What grows from this place in the days to come, will be some of the most powerful encounters with Holy Spirit; producing a lasting, pure harvest for His reaping.

BUT YOU MUST PROTECT the good things growing in your heart!

The Lord compares your heart to a garden in Jeremiah 31:12, “…Your life will be like a watered garden, and all their sorrows will be gone…” In one parable, Jesus says your heart is like soil; if you plant the right seeds, you will bring forth good fruit-some thirty, some sixty, and some a hundredfold (Matt. 13:23).

The seed is always the same. The seed is Him. It’s His Word. But it’s the condition of your heart that determines how much you produce! Some hearts are hard, stony ground. Some are shallow and look good for a little while, but don’t last. In Matthew 15:13, Jesus says, “…Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted.”

Your goal should be for the garden of your heart to be so healthy that it can grow even more fruit! NOT TO BE SEEN, but to be REVEALED. He longs for His people to reflect Him rightly and purely in the earth.

DON’T RUSH THE PROCESS! He’s making you into fertile soil! This soil will produce good results. Your life will bring much glory to God!

We are to GUARD our hearts from old thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, as well as, toxic people and things, and so much more! Proverbs 4:23 says, “Keep [or guard] your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.”

You may not feel like it now because of where you are in the process, but soon you will say, IT WAS WORTH IT!

With love and hope,
~ Brian and Julie Price
