Our Offenses against our God
As I was sitting in prayer I had such a heavy burned on my heart (I could feel the hurt, pain, suffering, disappointment and the rejection in God’s people heart) and as I begin to pray, I felt God’s hands soothing my heart and it was such a warmth and behind this healing was so much love! I could even see myself knelt before the thrown of God as I begin to weep and to cry before the Lord! God is healing the hearts of his people for the offense that has taken place by those in (America, body of Christ, jobs, husband and or spouse etc.) leadership and authority!
Satan stood up against Israel and got permission from God to tempt King David to number God’s people! Joab tried to intervene by asking David why he would do such a thing, but because David was king he went on and did what Kind David had ordered!
Isn’t it amazing that God always has somebody and or the Holy Spirit to warn us before we cross the line! But, King David being head of his Kingdom allowed his flesh to take over and he refuse to listen to reason; instead he commanded Joab to go out and gather all the people to number them and to give that number unto him!
God is speaking today that when we as leaders allow the enemy to use us to do things that we know is contrary to the will of God. We will have to give in account of every order and command that we give that is NOT like God!
Many times we allow pride, stubbornness, and rebellion to go to our heads thinking that just because we have a position or a title we can treat people any kind of way or we can do things without acknowledging God first!
The bible says in ALL thy ways to acknowledge God and he will direct our path! King David grieved the Holy Spirit when he decided to go over the advice of his servant Joab’s spiritual advice! Who said, “The LORD make his people an hundred times so many more as they be: but, my lord the king, are they not all my lord’s servants? Why then doth my lord require this thing? Why will he be a cause of trespass to Israel?”
Now, if God had already proved himself to you in the past many many times over again why would you not believe that he could do it again?
David angered God because it was a slap in the Lord’s face to say that God needed an army to fight a battle when he knew from the past experience that God was ALL POWERFUL! HELP US LORD JESUS!
Doesn’t that sound like many of God’s people in leadership instead of them trusting God to supply all their needs they allow the enemy (flesh/carnality) to come in and have them doing things contrary to the will and the plan of God! God is warning those in leadership that your mantle and anointing is NOTHING to play with! Once you start to disobey God and to open the gates for the enemy to come in you are opening up the gates for destruction and like King David you will pay for it dearly!
God is speaking that should many leaders in both America and the Church refuse to repent and to turn back to God, they are going to see the sword!
He said that many of you have failed to heed the warning and to acknowledge God for both his wisdom and his counsel; even after sending the prophets of God you to warn you of your wrong doing: and you have still begun to walk in your ways doing your own thing! And God was displeased with David numbering the people of God; therefore he smote Israel. (just as he will America and those in the body of Christ who are taking matters into there own hands!) And David said unto God, I have sinned greatly, because I have done this thing: (God is still waiting on many of you to come to your senses like King David.) but now, I beseech thee, do away the iniquity of thy servant; for I have done very foolishly.
And the LORD spake unto Gad, David’s seer, (you see before God sends judgement he always sends a prophet) saying, Go and tell David, saying, Thus saith the LORD, I offer thee three things: choose thee one of them, that I may do it unto thee. So Gad came to David, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Choose thee Either three years’ famine; or three months to be destroyed before thy foes, while that the sword of thine enemies overtaketh thee; or else three days the sword of the LORD, even the pestilence, in the land, and the angel of the LORD destroying throughout all the coasts of Israel. (some times even when we repent God will still allow punishment to come) Now therefore advise thyself what word I shall bring again to him that sent me. And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let me fall now into the hand of the LORD; for very great are his mercies: but let me not fall into the hand of man. So the LORD sent pestilence upon Israel: and there fell of Israel seventy thousand men. And God sent an angel unto Jerusalem to destroy it: and as he was destroying, the LORD beheld, and he repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed, It is enough, stay now thine hand.
And the angel of the LORD stood by the threshing-floor of Ornan the Jebusite. And David lifted up his eyes, and saw the angel of the LORD stand between (many times we open our eyes but the damage is already done and many will have to suffer because of the sins of one man; Just as Jesus did on the cross!
This is why it pays to yield ourselves to the will of God!) the earth and the heaven, having a drawn sword in his hand stretched out over Jerusalem. Then David and the elders of Israel, who were clothed in sackcloth, fell upon their faces. And David said unto God, Is it not I that commanded the people to be numbered? Even I, it is, that have sinned and done evil indeed; but as for these sheep, what have they done? Let thine hand, I pray thee, O LORD my God, be on me, and on my father’s house; but not on thy people, that they should be plagued. Then the angel of the LORD commanded Gad to say to David, that David should go up, and set up an altar unto the LORD in the threshing-floor of Ornan the Jebusite.
God is going to get our (both America and the body of Christ – those playing church) attention one way or another; many do not understand the repercussions of sin and how it can affect the very people that we love when we are in leadership!
When you take on this task you had better know that God will not stand by calmly while you continue to tear down what he is building in this hour!

TIME IS ABOUT TO RUN OUT FOR MANY!
This morning in prayer I hear God saying that death is in the land!
I hear the Holy Spirit saying, “May the deeds (works) that I do speak for me!”
We all know the story of Abigal, David and Nabal! And David heard in the wilderness that Nabal did shear his sheep. And David sent out ten young men, (to help Nabal) and David said unto the young men, Get you up to Carmel, and go to Nabal, and greet him in my name: And thus shall ye say to him that liveth in prosperity, Peace be both to thee, and peace be to thine house, and peace be unto all that thou hast. And now I have heard that thou hast shearers: now thy shepherds which were with us, we hurt them not, neither was there ought missing unto them, all the while they were in Carmel. (Many times you can go out your way to accommodate some people and try to show love to them and they end up doing you wrong!) Ask thy young men, and they will shew thee. Wherefore let the young men find favour in thine eyes: for we come in a good day: give, I pray thee, whatsoever cometh to thine hand (David and his men where tired from their journey and ALL they wanted was so food and help from Nabal whom God had blessed!) unto thy servants, and to thy son David. And when David’s young men came, they spake to Nabal according to all those words in the name of David, and ceased. And Nabal answered David’s servants, and said, Who is David? (the spirit of Pride will make us loose sight of what is right in the sight of God!) and who is the son of Jesse? There be many servants now a days that break away every man from his master. Shall I then take my (Nabal forgot that it was God that had blessed him to get wealth; and not he himself!) bread, and my water, and my flesh that I have killed for my shearers, and give it unto men, whom I know not whence they be? (1 Samuel 25: 3-11)
But, God wants the people of God to know that the life you live will be the life that you shall die! Just as foolish Nabal who died and had a heart attack because he did not use wisdom and care how he treated David and his men! SOME OF YOU ARE TOUCHING GOD’S ANOINTED AND YOU ARE TREATING THEM ANY OWE KIND OF WAY, BUT I AM HERE TO TELL YOU GOD IS WATCHING YOU AND YOUR TIME IS JUST ABOUT TO RUN OUT! (Psalms 105:15)
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God. (Ephesians 2: 8-9). Many times we as the people of God forget where God has brought us from and we begin doing things our OWN way; instead of acknowledging God on what steps we should take! Self will get many killed in this season!
For, I hear God saying that if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live, (Romans 8: 13). For, God is going to reward each and every one of us according to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompense to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompense, (Isaiah 59:18).
So, it behooves each and EVERYONE OF US to be watchful and mindful how we treat each other in this world because we will surely have to give account of the things that we do in this body! God is speaking on today and he is WARNING THE PEOPLE OF GOD (WORLD) TO SET YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER! GOD IS COMING AND MANY OF US WILL NOT BE READY FOR HIS RETURN! Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven, (Matthew 7: 21).
SOME OF YOU ARE LIKE WICKED NABAL YOU ARE BUILDING BARNS AND MORE BARNS, BUT YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN ABOUT YOUR ETERNAL SOUL AND WHERE YOU WILL SPEND ETERNITY!
God is waning us to get rid of “PRIDE!” WHY? Because, we are all as an unclean [thing], and all our righteousnesses [are] as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away, (Isaiah 64: 6). For, it is only what you do for Christ is going to last! If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, (Some of you are trying to build your kingdom down here: but, I am afraid only God can allow you to do that and he already said in his word that it is appointed to every man to die and after that will come judgement!) where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, (many worried about a new house, a new car, more money in the bank etc., BUT WHAT ABOUT YOUR SOUL!) not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. (ASK YOURSELF: WILL YOU BE READY FOR HIS RETURN?) Mortify therefore your members (STOP WAITING ON GOD TO DO WHAT HE ALREADY TOLD YOU TO DO!) which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds….(Colossians 3: 1-9)
For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord, (Romans 6: 23). GOD IS SPEAKING: THE LIFE YOU LIVE AND GOVERN HERE ON EARTH IS WHAT IS GOING TO BE USED TO DECIDE WHERE YOU WILL SPEND ETERNITY, SO BE VERY SURE THAT YOU ARE READY FOR WHAT IS TO COME!
Exhortation to give!
The Lord spoke this to me Regarding giving! He said that it will come a time that people will refuse to give because of so many false (stinginess/ own selfishness) prophets in the land! The Lord said, “This people say, The time is NOT come, the time that the Lord’s house should be built. (The support and the giving to help support both mission and the gospel go lacking because of foolishness!)
Then came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying, Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your finished houses, and this house lie waste? Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways. (Why are so many false prophets robbing God’s people? Why is the church stealing from God and abusing the gospel financially when God said he loves a cheerful giver! Why manipulate and deceive God’s people? Why take money that belong to God to buy yourself a New house, dress, car etc..) Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes, (Haggai 1:1-5). God is saying you WILL NOT be blessed when you rob him! In fact, the more he bless some the stinger they get!
God’s man and or woman of God should not have to leave full-time ministry to work, but the time will come when many will have to because the people who govern the earth are refusing to give to support the mission of God! They want the WORD OF GOD BUT THEY HAVE CLOSED hearts and hands!
Paul could have asked for some financial support, but he did not: “Though we might have made demands as apostles of Christ. But we were gentle among you, like a nurse tenderly caring for her own children.” Although teachers were normally paid by their students, Paul did not ask for payment — he did not want people to question his motives (1 Corinthians 9:12). He was as gentle as a woman taking care of a baby He supplied their needs, but did not ask them to supply his. That is evidence of sincerity, and along with it, the truth of the gospel.
I’m shaking my head on this one because God is saying for the people to open up your heart and your hands: because a closed hand and heart will NEVER be blessed!

Learn to walk in the Spirit
God is speaking today: when we learn to walk in the Spirit, God will show us things beyond the natural eyes!
When we begin trying to judge things according to our flesh we will always find ourselves outside of the will of God!
That is why we need to consult God in every aspects of our lives! Because, our eyes can be deceived and what looks like god is in fact a smoking mirrors from the enemy!
I see Smoking Mirrors
This morning in prayer I heard the Lord say to remain in prayer! I SEE SMOKING MIRRORS: something that distorts or blurs facts, figures, etc., like a magic or conjuring trick; artful deception.
And I sent messengers unto them, saying, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you? (Nehemiah 6:3)..
The enemy is using folks in their carnal flesh! Many times folk are walking in carnality and they do things to us and they think that it is alright because the flesh has NOT DIED!
This is why David came down from doing the work of the Lord, committed sin and blood was on his hands! For, it happened late one afternoon that David got up from his bed and walked about on the roof of the king’s house, and he saw a woman bathing on her roof. Now the woman was very beautiful. David sent and inquired about the woman, and someone said, “Is this not Bathsheba the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?” Then David sent messengers and took her, and she came to him, and he slept with her, (2 Samuel 11: 2-4).
The devil will dress things up to make it look like what we are doing is from God; when in ALL truth it nothing but a lie that we have dressed up to meet our own fleshly minds and desires! This is why David called another mans wife and took her as if it was his own! He thought no one saw him: but, he forgot the Lord has eyes in everyplace beholding the good and the evil!
I don’t care how anointed we are and what position we might hold in the body of Christ when we sin God will no longer justify us in our wrong doing! The carnal mind is an enemy against God for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be, and that is why God tells and warns us to KILL IT! PUT IT UNDER SUBJECTION! (Romans 8:7).
Now in the morning David wrote a letter to Joab and sent it by the hand of Uriah. He had written in the letter, saying, “Place Uriah in the front line of the fiercest battle and withdraw from him, so that he may be struck down and die. So it was as Joab kept watch on the city, that he put Uriah at the place where he knew there were valiant men, (2 Samuel 11: 14-16).
David like some of us when we are weak think that our actions are normal when in reality they are corrupt, and when you commit one sin you end up having to commit another in order to cover up the next one until you are completely out of the will of God! David in the end had killed his brother, got his wife pregnant and now he has killed him in order to protect himself! This is why God warns us to kill the old man because if you give him an inch he will take over a yard in your life! MY GOD! When David came to him self it was too late and he was now in too deep; leaving God having to send the prophet Nathan to correct him of his sins, and the bad thing is David did not even recognize that it was he that had committed this ugly sin; until Nathan said, “it is you King David!”
This is why David told God to Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: (God wants honesty, he wants us to acknowledge our sins and not to cover them up!) and my sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Make me to hear joy and gladness; (you will never have the joy of the Lord; until you repent!) that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. (Lord our spirits need to be realigned with your will!) Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee. (We can not help others until we first get right!) Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness. O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise, (Psalm 51: 1-17).
God is speaking on today! We can not and will not have the love of God in our hearts until we realize the condition of our heart and repent! In fact; love will not allow us to think evil of our neighbor! Love will not allow us to works ill to our neighbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law, (Romans 13:10).
“There fore, if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another,” Galatians 5: 15.
