From Burning Bush To Bush Overboard, G-d Speaks

Many peculiar things manifested this past week in Carrie’s life. From a confirming prophetic word to a freak storm and the explosion at Exxon’s refinery plant, could Abba be trying to communicate something? Could He be burning up things in Carrie’s life having her let go of somethings so He can have her focus on more important matters or take her into new realms in and with Him?

Ironically enough, a section of this week’s Torah portion hints at “kashering by fire” or being purified by fire before entering G-d’s presence or coming into the camp (Numbers 19, Numbers 31, 1 Corinthians 3). Our vessels need to be purified and that is what Abba seems to be doing in His people. Notice the passage of 1st Kings 18 prophecized over Carrie in worship services recently not only confirms what Abba has been prompting Carrie to do ( to “release” or call out false prophets…as well as perhaps “release” more beloved things to the L-rd), but moreover, speaks to being purified or consumed by G-d’s holy fire. When true prophets are purified by His Spirit, G-d grants them the authority to call down fire or put another way, change the atmosphere for G-d’s Spirit of Holiness is about transformation.

Leading others, teaching others, and or operating in true prophetic realms, is a heavy responsibility…Those who dare to do so should expect to be purified by Abba’s fire as He tosses things overboard through His holy wind.

Sailing in The Spirit

While sailing, the sailor must be in alignment with the wind or they are stuck in bondage called “in-irons”. Woven along each sail are strings called the “telltales” because they tell if you and thereby your vessel are in alignment with the wind. The telltales will be flowing horizontally when your vessel is in alignment with the wind.

Similarly, when we as followers of Yeshua/Jesus are NOT in alignment with His Holy Spirit/the Spirit of Holiness also known as wind, we too will be stuck “in-irons” or bondage as slaves to sin..slaves to lawlessness. For we know the “telltale” signs or results of being in alignment with Yahweh’s Wind, we will cheerfully and willingly “horizontally” submit unto His Holy Wind… The telltales of our “course” is our obedience unto Him and His directions found in His Holy perfect Word.

Obedience to Abba’s ways..His will..His laws aren’t bondage, but liberty. Rather, rebellion is stuck in-irons to sin.

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entan gled again with a yoke of bondage.” Galatians 5:1 (Free from the consequence of sin! Avoid the law of sin and death//lawlessness see 1 John 3:4, but embrace the law of God//law of the Spirit of life Romans 7:22-8:10)

“So shall I keep Your law continually, forever and ever. And I will walk (or sail) at liberty, For I seek Your precepts.” Psalm 119:44-45

Learning To Sail

learningtosail2.jpgHere is a video capturing our free #sailing lesson we had this past Sunday. This sailor friend has been such a blessing looking out for us rookies and teaching us things. He even bought me a sailing book that he found helpful while he was learning. In this video, you can see a tour of his vessel, learn what’s involved in preparing to sail, and then towards the end actual sailing (with inspirational music). It was challenging due to the strong wind gusts, but fun too. I certainly learned somethings in the process! Sailing and God have something in common: There is ALWAYS more to learn!

 

You’ll Never Believe What Happened On The Beach

After wrestling with her fears and religious bondage, Carrie responded in obedience to the Spirit’s invitation to play her guitar on the beach for the first time. You’ll never believe what happened next…

Hiking During the Open House

Kilgore Falls, Maryland

This past Sunday, our realtor hosted an Open House and had a fair amount of people coming through the home especially when you consider it was a blustery cold autumn day. While our realtor got to work, the hubster and I, along with our little dog, decided to go for a hike not far from home.

Despite the wind advisory and chilly weather, we bundled up and went exploring. The crisp air filled our lungs while the fast paced, but easy hike, warmed our bodies.

We, too, were thrilled to be amongst the great outdoors and getting some exercise! kilgorefallsmd-11-20-16-jerryleoUpon a brief hike of probably less than a half of mile, we reached huge boulders, a calming creek, and flowing waterfalls. Now, these falls, known as Kilgore Falls located in Jarrettsville, Maryland,  were nothing like the ones we’ve seen in North Carolina and certainly not like the magnificent falls in Oregon, but these falls were still pretty and most of all, convenient, being they are short drive from home.

If you are ever in the Maryland area, Kilgore Falls is a must.
