Pride Must Go

On Leviathan:
     First we must realize that Leviathan is a spirit, one that exists and thrives even today. Then we, in the light of YHWH’s Omnipotence, must understand that the only way for Leviathan to have rights to affect our lives is when we live unsubmitted to the Father, our Elohim.
Let’s look at one single verse about this beast:

Job 41:22 In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him.

     What about such a powerful foe would cause Joy over sorrow? What is this verse doing in the center of a description of something so terrible?

“A more plain translation says: “Strength dwells in his neck, and sorrow dances before him”
- They are strong (Strength dwells in his neck)
- They are cruel and entertained by sorrow (sorrow dances before him)”.
David Guzik Study Guide for Job 41

“Take a view of his neck, and there remains strength, v. 22. his head and his body are well set together. Sorrow rejoices (or rides in triumph) before him, for he makes terrible work wherever he comes. Or, Those storms which are the sorrow of others are his joys; what is tossing to others is dancing to him. His flesh is well knit, v. 23.”
Matthew Henry Commentary

     At first glance, this verse in the KJV has us thinking that sorrow turned to joy in the beast’s presence.  That thought is in plain contradiction to all of the surrounding verses and their descriptions of Leviathan.  Digging a little prayerfully, we find an even more sinister character of the beast: that the fire from his mouth and nostrils causes sorrow personified to rejoice!   How terrible! 
We suffer all of this because we tend our nature and say “I’ve got this.” Rather than, “Yes, YHWH, yes, Elohim, yes, Adonay, yes yes yes, my Father! I love you King! I submit before You wholly and I wait for You to speak to All of me.”

To solidify the revelation of what Leviathan has been given to rule over, listen to the Word of YHWH:

“Job 41:33-34 Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear. He beholdeth all high [things]: he [is] a king over all the children of pride.”

Pride Must Go: 

     Pride isn’t something that we can cast out, it’s not something that can be cured or treated with medications, Pride is something that we must choose to reign, something we must be proactive against.  Pride isn’t defeated by seeing it and then battling it down, Pride is defeated by action in its antithesis, Humility.  In all we do we must adorn on ourselves the cloak of humility or Pride will shine and blind us from seeing the enemy’s game to destroy us.  Colossians 3:12-14 has quite a bit of instruction on what this looks like:

Colossians 3:12-14 So embrace, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, a spirit of mercy, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, and longsuffering. Bear with one another and forgive one another. If anyone has a quarrel against anyone, even as Christ forgave you, so you must do. And above all these things, embrace love, which is the bond of perfection.

     The Church has been asleep and selfish, seeking week to week to go to a place to get some Jesus and then go on about their lives until the next required dose.  We go to the meetings, not ready to give what Jesus has given us but, to take from the plates of inspiration that our Authority (leadership) has labored to prepare for the flock.  We so quickly forget that we ARE all sheep, even our Authority, and we ALL have the ability, yes even the responsiblity, to labor and tend to the wonderful gardens of inspiration found in YHWH, our Elohim!  How are we to follow the great commission to go and make disciples if we ourselves refuse to be sharpened by even YHWH’s Word!?!?  Save the fact that we all would have to desire greatly to be corrected by another believer rather than to find correction to dole out!

     The enemy of the children of Pride is before you, waiting to deceive and destroy.  We have a task before us, the thing is exposed, and the task is so simple that if you don’t do just that, you’ll miss it. What is it? Surrender. Don’t go, don’t do, don’t guess, surrender!  Then and only then will you be sent, then and only then will your labor NOT be in vain.

Commissioned on this day [insert the date you’re reading this] to surrender to The Father, in Jesus’ name.

Reading 1 John 5:14-15

“Lord what you want for me“

“for you let me close to you. For you to let me come and be with you. For you let me rest with you.“

“But Lord, let you? Aren’t you sovereign? I have to let you?“

“I am.”

Immediately revelation begins to flow from the Throne of Grace with great mercy: The Lord is sovereign and He is omnipresent (everywhere) including close to us and with us at all times. Even tho He is resting with His Children, there’s an activation of that in relationship when they acknowledge and focus, believing, these truths. Spending time with Him day after day has taught us that we can spend time with Him moment to moment: arrive here and you’ll find that the peace that passes all understanding will rise up in your heart and remain.
What an awesome and scandalous Love He is! Thank you Lord! Thank You!

Ps 92

Psalm 92:1-15 (KJV) 1 [[A Psalm [or] Song for the sabbath day.]] [It is a] good [thing] to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: 2 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night, 3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound. 4 For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands. 5 O LORD, how great are thy works! [and] thy thoughts are very deep. 6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this. 7 When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; [it is] that they shall be destroyed for ever: 8 But thou, LORD, [art most] high for evermore. 9 For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered. 10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like [the horn of] an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil. 11 Mine eye also shall see [my desire] on mine enemies, [and] mine ears shall hear [my desire] of the wicked that rise up against me. 12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. 14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; 15 To shew that the LORD [is] upright: [he is] my rock, and [there is] no unrighteousness in him.

For I reckon that the
sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory
which shall be revealed in us.
  For the
earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons
of God.
  For the creature was made
subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the
same in hope,
  Because the creature itself
also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious
liberty of the children of God.
  For we
know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until
   And not only they, but ourselves
also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within
ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
                                    --     Romans 8:18-23 (KJV)
There are levels inside this passage
that are to be understood. 
First off, the sons of God:  As a manifest son of God, which are those
that believe, we enter in to a space where we know our identity in the
Anointing of God. 
I use the word Anointing because
that’s what the word Christ means and it suits a purpose here.  Anytime I’ve spoken and you’ve received
deeply from the wells of the Father, the Anointing on my life was
involved.  The Anointing is best
explained as a target.  The literal
translation is “smear” so to enhance the idea of oil being smeared as a faith
avenue for the Holy Ghost in our prayers and other matters where oil is
used.  So to say “The Anointing is here!”
is to say, “The Smear is Here!” haha          - -   
doesn’t make much sense does it? 
That’s because the Anointing, while it IS the agent that destroys the
yoke of bondage, is nothing without the manifest presence of God. 
Without the Spirit of God showing up
to hit the target of the Anointing on YOUR life, the things that were given 
through MY Anointing by the Spirit would have missed you completely!  So let us decree today that you’re Anointed
because of the evidences we’ve seen thus far. 
Notice in the next portion of the verse a set of words that
says “into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”  Here is that place where shame and guilt have
no place.  Here is where we LEARN to stay
by temperance in falling again and again but never ceasing to rise back up and
tackle the idea that MORE of God is attainable and building up the stamina to
make another go of it.  Have you ever zoned
out and tryed to go backwards?   Well I
praise God right now for the evidence that you did not do so happily.   Signs, my dear friends, signs…  
Moving on: Also note that there is a lot of this scripture I
won’t go into because it would take a book to do it. 
MAY The Spirit of God give you revelation knowledge of Him in
it according to Eph 1:17-19.  
I can tell you this much: when you manifest as a son of the Most High God, when you know your rights and inheritance
fully in revelation more than in thought
, (comes with time, you’re
doing great!), you WILL understand what you are to do about creation’s
groanings and travailings.

Tell me what you see here:
I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my
supplications. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call
upon him as long as I live. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of
hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow. Then called I upon the name
of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. Gracious is the LORD, and
righteous; yea, our God is merciful. The LORD preserveth the simple: I was
brought low, and he helped me. Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD
hath dealt bountifully with thee. For thou hast delivered my soul from death,
mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. I will walk before the LORD in
the land of the living. I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly
afflicted: I said in my haste, All men are liars. What shall I render unto the
LORD for all his benefits toward me? I will take the cup of salvation, and call
upon the name of the LORD. I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence
of all his people. Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his
saints. O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine
handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds. I will offer to thee the sacrifice of
thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD. I will pay my vows unto
the LORD now in the presence of all his people, In the courts of the LORD'S
house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
(Psa 116:1-19)

Alright, That’s the ministry portion.  Thank you for those who have written.  It means a lot. 
The enemy would lie to us and seek to divide the Body so that
the purpose of the Lord is frustrated. 
Romans 8:28-31 ends with a great declaration having to do
with our justification in him being completed: If God be for us, who can be
against us.”
So don’t buy the enemies lie of fear.  Fear is Anti-Faith.  The Opposite of Love IS in fact fear. 
I John tells us that Perfect love casts out fear and that
there is no fear in love.  We are praying
for your families.   Thank you for sharing them with us.  We will begin to cover and ask that the Lord
cause that bond to be strengthened and remain
One thing the devil cannot take from you there is your
spiritual authority over her life. 
You have the responsibility to take their names in to the
Throne Room of the King, knowing you’re washed in the Blood and DECLARED
righteouse, and make supplications on their behalf as an intercessor and
Father.   Call them in to the Kingdom,
ask God to send laborers into the camp to guide them and lead them in to a
loving relationship with Jesus and the Father! 
If they love the Father, you’re a shoe-in when restoration happens. 
Get faithful in handling God’s business for others and He’ll
handle yours..  
(Mat 6:33)  Know that
it is God’s business for you to step in to your spiritual authority over your
children.  Know that you do have it and
what you do affects them and the things around them in the spirit realm.  As a child of God you have the power to set, to
put in place, and to keep the spiritual ground around them at peace and safe
for your babies.
 Nike that boy! Just Do It!
            God is a
restorer.  Let HIM worry about the how.
Romans 5 says HOPE does not disappoint!
God is not reduced to the Bible and you know it!  We thank God for you!  The best thing you can do is SEEK GOD for HIM. 
I don’t recommend to you medication.  I am not a doctor and must tell you that my
opinion is just an opinion and it has zero weight with the authority a Dr has,
but I know that in ministering deliverance, the first thing we do is ween them
off of medication safely because you cannot minister to a repressed and
oppressed soul when demonic activity is a factor.  I think that maybe you’re dealing with
demonic influence. 
I know depression is a devil that likes to conform people in
to his image.   I have seen that
stronghold!!  Remember that everything
God has, the devil has a lie for…  
I understand if you do not agree and I would recommend that
you make your own decision in this because I am not there to support you from
moment to moment like we would a deliverance candidate
But you guys aren’t experiencing the standard: God has a way
of getting a hold of you and causing you to hunger for him at such a depth that
your freedom comes!  I SEE what He’s
doing, He’s doing the Work.  Trust

Have you prayed in tongues lately?  Do it
to edify your Spirit man.

Mike Barber Weekend @ Hutchins

Hello everyone:
     Wanted to keep you in the loop on what we're doing in Jesus' Name!  I had the honor of going in to the Hutchins Unit (TDCJ) tonight and seeing the men there encouraged by Mike Barber and Co. 
     Brandon, Pastor in Houston, opened up followed by Phil Driscoll and Jesse Duplantis. What a real Group of individuals sharing their hearts out to The men behind prison walls.

     The kicker wasn't meeting these Men of God, although it is an High Honor to do so, but that almost every man under that tent stood when asked to solidify their relationship with Jesus. Mike had them all look up for 3 seconds so Jesus could take their picture and it was an amazing sight to see these men, whom society might balk at, hungry for more of God. An High Honor indeed.

The Love of God in Us - Panola County Daily Devotional Extension

When we look at the ABC's of the Christian walk we are looking for a focus, an objective, a goal: something to strive for.  This walk isn't made from works, mind you, but most certainly is evidenced by them.  So what are we looking for?  What can we focus on in our own lives?
Two Sections of scripture come to mind:  II Corinthians 10:3-5 and Romans 12:1 & 2.
This week, We've been taking steps to share what the Lord has give us here.  We pray that it has shed light in your heart and that today we can add to that in the name of Jesus.
Tuesday we looked at Romans 12:1 and saw that Paul was Calling the Roman Believers to do submit to God; "I Beseech you Brethren".  We found out that our submission to God is produced in us "by the mercies of God".  
Wednesday, yesterday, we talked about how real sin is in our own lives and that when dealing with other's we must keep that in mind, "Looking at specks past our planks"
Today we explore in our brief time: The Love of God In Us. For more on today's message click the BLOG link @
                All of Scripture reveals to us that God’s will in the earth is to be glorified by His creation – you and I as a born-again believer, have the key and the access to grant His requirement: worshipping in Spirit and in Truth.  Don’t let the doctrine of man sway you, dear believer.  If the Lord says you can talk in other languages, believe that, if He says that you can pray in the Spirit without understanding and then pray FOR understanding afterwards then by faith DO THAT!  Trust that you’ll receive what your spirit has spoken in conversation to the Lord.  If you believe that God has said (to do) and it lines up with His word, do it BOLDLY and quickly.  I promise you this, by follow the commands of Jesus to Love God first, you will get to know Him.  Begin loving on God by pouring out in prayer and using His word (the Bible).  He will disciple you in how to approach, with understanding, His character AND you’ll love your neighbor as yourself.

                Following the first commandment of Jesus, to Love God first, is something that increases in us, grows, until we leave this earth.  The increase of our love is by God’s revelation: it happens within our relationship with Him.  It is impossible for man to completely know the depths of the Love of God, for God is Love.  HIS depths are unfathomable to us!  How could our finite minds wrap around the infinite?  Think of it: as a child of God, you have an inheritance that is infinite.  Infinite.  Would you like to hear the good news?  WE HAVE ACCESS TO IT ALL BECAUSE OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD WITHIN US!!!  Let me see if some Word can help us grasp this… 
“We love because He first loved us.” – I John 4:19 MEV
So, the cause of my love for Him is His for me?  What a spark!  Does this mean: My love for Him is full & complete or He doesn’t love me at all?  Well, not exactly: Our love for Him is instant in that we have met someone that Loves us completely but as time goes by and He continues to love us our love for him grows as we discover more of Him. 
First, there is the initial sanctification of man to Him in salvation: A man can “will” a change by putting pressure on his nature.  He’ll even show change but the moment he releases the pressure he’s back to square one.  When God changes our Nature (in salvation [new heart, new mind]), this radically changes our desires to be aligned with His.  Then, the process of continued sanctification excels and we move on from Faith to Faith and from Glory to Glory.  The more revelation and understanding I have of His love FOR me, the more I’m enabled to retain and to share His love – with Him.   Did you see that?  It’s His love shed abroad in our hearts that makes the difference.  We don’t have it in and of ourselves.  Being born again sets us into our access of the things of the spirit realm by our born-again spirit (“inner man” Eph 3).  THEN AND ONLY THEN can we Worship in Spirit and in Truth.  It is our born-again spirit that has access to the Throne Room, it is there we commune with God, it is there that our RELATIONSHIP is: it cannot exist without it – God is a Spirit & God is Love. 

                Hold on, let’s go deeper:  If God is love and we are one with Him, who is it that loves others and how is it that we love others as ourselves if we ourselves can’t even love ourselves?!?! Did you see that?  Praise God for Revelation Knowledge of the workings of the Kingdom!  It is GOD who loves us and it is GOD who loves others – we are a vessel for HIM, not for us.  When we are full of self,   we have NOTHING to give and when we are full of Him we STILL have NOTHING to give – That's why Hebrews calls us to strive to enter His rest! HE loves others through us while we rest in Him.  We simply yield and become a conduit of His “electric” power.  We are the connection from the place where He is in the Throne Room and the place where we are in the earth realm: a true "manifestation of the sons of God."

This is why the ABC's are so important: Romans 12:1,2 and II Corinthians 10:3-5:

Remember: the increase of our love is by God’s revelation in relationship.  Loving others starts with loving God.  You cannot love them without ministering to Him first.  

I thank you for joining me today, I'm JD and I call you Blessed and Highly Favored!

Panola County Devotional Sept 25, 2017

Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption:  for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back. Isaiah 38:17

It is in the depths of sin that we cannot see sin for what it is.  It is only when the light that is God draws us with His precious Spirit that we are able to even glance at the depths of the wickedness that surrounds the non-believer yea is even issued from his heart. It is the bondage of slavery in Egypt, we knew nothing more than whips and dinner, hushed conversations kept far from our captors ears about God or a new born son and daughter on the way. The person who doesn’t know Jesus lives under such a burden and cannot see that burden as something to be broken but something to be lived with.  

It is in the depths of sin that we cannot see sin for what it is. It is only when the light that is God draws us with His precious Spirit that we are able to see the depth of the wickedness in this world.   Dear man, dear woman, has God pricked your heart this morning? Hear the words of The Lord recorded in Isaiah 44:
For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring. And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses, One shall say, I am the LORD’s and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the Lord, and name himself by the name of Israel. Thus says the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me the is no god.

Dear man, dear woman, please hear me when I say to you that your chains are yours by willing choice and that there is a freedom that is offered you this day. Hear me when I proclaim that I was bound  in those chains unknowingly and had it not been for a man called Jesus and a place called Calvary I’d still be there with you, blind and unable to reach out my hand today in offering.
