I must have an atmosphere to breathe!



I must share what the Lord just said to me…  I saw a woman swimming in an ocean, she was holding her breath.  This woman could move pretty well as long as she held her breath, but it was obvious that this atmosphere was not conducive for her to live in.

The Lord then said to me:

“When will My people make an atmosphere conducive for Me to not only visit sometimes, but that I may come and live in all of the time?

I dwell in the praises of My people, which is the atmosphere of Heaven coming to Earth!

I want to breathe into the Earth, into their gatherings,and into their homes.  I want to breathe into their cities and their nations, but they must make it conducive for Me to breathe!”

“But You are holy, enthroned in the praises of Israel,”   Psalms 22:3 (NKJV).


God is a redemptive God!  He does nothing but what He first tells His secrets to His servants the prophets!  When He gives them warnings, be it in a vision, a dream or a word, it always has a redemptive purpose that is from His heart of love.  It is to get people to repent or change so that they can escape many things that He sees ahead unless they repent..

Many misrepresent who He is by saying that He is damming them.  If God’s heart was to damn the world to hell, He would never have had to come and die so that they might be saved!  

Once, many years ago I was grieved by people swearing and saying God Damn and I asked Him, “Why am I so grieved about that God?”  He said that it was because He lived in Me and that He was the Blesser and Not the Damner!   When we call for the damnation of others in His Name this is using the Lord’s Name in Vain… Why?  Because because His Name is His Nature and His Nature is to save!

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved,”   John 3:16-17 (NKJV).

“And we have known and believed the love that God has for us.  God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him,”   1 John 4:16 (NKJV).

God is in Charge!

Last night I spent a couple of hours sharing a word and dream that I believe God gave me about how that he is going to use many families for ministry.  It disappeared on me.  This was the second time I tried.

The enemy thinks he is stopping it from coming forth, but really God will prevail regardless of his attempts and it will be perfectly timed and will speak to someone and change their life!!

God knows what He is doing, the enemy is only a pawn to bring about the perfect timing of God!
