“Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know”
God has never stopped performing signs and wonders for those who believe, and He never will.
God instructed His people in the past to tell the testimonies of His Miracles, Signs, and Wonders. After all, if we don’t know the works of God, we can’t believe in them.
Standing on the foundation of our faith we can learn to seamlessly enter, receive, and experience all the supernatural miracles of God.
The key to open the door is by Faith, just like David. Our Faith determines our experience and through worship we enter His Glory!
I am here to tell you, in His Glory there are no limits.
Open Heavens and Glory Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him and bless His name (Psalm 100:4 NKJV).
The air is the atmosphere of the Earth, glory is the atmosphere of Heaven. It lifts us up above the earth realm into the very presence of God.
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge.” Psalm 19:1-2
However, we are told in 2 Corinthians that we will not visit with Glory beyond our own revelation no matter if we are alone or in a corporate setting.
The LORD wants His children to understand how His Glory operates and manifests on the earth through Praise and Worship.
That’s why we say “Holy Spirit come, you are invited here!” We must come into agreement with the revelation of miracles before they can come!
“And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate The LORD’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from The LORD, who is the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:18
Now, lets begin with my second lightning bolt which came in the form of healing during “Bloom” just as The Father promised.
Each spring our Church hosts a Woman’s Conference called Bloom and over 650 ladies attend (70 different Churches).
Honestly, I was not expecting anything, but I was excited to take a weekend to worship The LORD with a bunch of precious ladies who are all on fire for God.
For the time being, I was not thinking about the promise God had given to me when he said, “Start a podcast and I will heal you”.
That was over a year and a half ago, but I had faith he would do it . I had just gotten use to looking through a soapy shower curtain in the front of my eye.
I have been inflicted by an auto immune disease that targets my eyes, spine, and soles of my feet for most of my adult life.
We all know the enemy is aware when God is about to move, and he was working overtime the first night of the conference.
I don’t think any of us were prepared for the spiritual warfare that we encountered. However, the enemy didn’t win because even though we were all exhausted, most of us went to bed praying, knowing God would show up again the following day.
I was attending with my 2 sister wonderful sisters-in-law and two of us stopped for coffee while my other sister went ahead and entered the auditorium. Arriving a bit late, we entered the auditorium not prepared for the change in the atmosphere.
Our Church has an amazing lead pastor, Robie and worship leader Ruth who both have beautiful singing voices.
Their team of worshippers are all sold-out Jesus Fools, just like you and me. AND they had been knocking heaven’s door wide open to usher the glory in that morning.
They stood all 650-woman singing and swaying to the music with arms held high in full worship and praise.
Our Church ministry knows how to usher in The Glory of God — and they place special emphasis on Praise and Worship.
I believe this Conference correlates to what famous Ruth Ward Heflin said,
“Praise until Worship comes, Worship until The Glory comes, and then stand in The Glory.”
That is exactly what we did! To Stand in the glory is to become someone who worships the Father with radical passion, which becomes the gate into the glory and a throne for God’s glory to sit upon. He is enthroned by our praise and worship (Psalm 22:3 NKJV).
When Heaven opens — it’s glorious and you have so much energy, because it’s God’s energy you feel!
We worshiped for over an hour and the music was just lovely, goose mumps and all. I love to sing, but until there is glory in the room, I can’t carry a tune.
As we praise and the portals of heaven open, we continue to praise Him with thankfulness in our heart and with passion to enter His Courts.
Exactly, what we are told happens in Psalm 100:4. We will “enter into His courts.” We move from The Outer Court to The Inner Court, and then into The Most Holy Place where The Glory is.
You may not visibly see anything while you are entering His Gates with Thanksgiving and Praise, but you will notice more and more a change in the atmosphere. It reveals spiritual activity.
It is a place of Divine Joy, and I want to be here all day just like Psalm 24. This lovely place is where God’s meets us and His Glory overwhelms our senses so nothing else is allowed in…
In this place is where God chose to heal me!
A time and place specific as Our God of miracles could shine.
Let His Glory Shine~
As I worship, I feel an overwhelming desire to kneel even though everyone else is standing and immediately I feel The Father’s Presence.
On my knees, I continue to praise Him because I know He’s working. I close my eyes; I am lost now. The room opens and the space around me widens.
My symbolic action of getting down on my knees to allow His resurrected life to flow through my yielded vessel, expands me.
This simple act of humility coupled with praise consumes me, because we are now joined.
As I continued to sing about His greatness and His faithfulness, I literally felt my spirit growing and expanding to fill space inside of me that had been protected waiting to be filled.
The Father places His Hand on the top of my head. I feel pressure and immediately realize He is healing me.
I begin thanking God for healing me as the pressure of His Hand continues to press on the front of my temple.
After several minutes, I open my eyes and my floating shower curtain is gone in front of my eye and I can see.
I don’t know if any of you have struggled with your sight, but it creates crippling fear. This happens to all of us when we can’t function properly.
Our natural life has limitations, so when you choose to be your own life source, whether out of fear or out of habit, you are embracing impossibility.
The life of Jesus Christ flowing through me, on the other hand, I cannot help but feel miraculous! I lean into it and say Yes to the Divine exchange, I receiving everything that Jesus comes to place in me.
“All who seek to live apart from me will lose it all. But those who let go of their lives for my sake and surrender it all to me will discover true life!” Matthew 10:39 TPT
When you choose to believe that you died with Christ and that Christ is living His life through you — the yielding I am speaking of allows you to grow into the fullness of your oneness with Him.
This is the key for healing — faith like David.
“these are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David.” Revelation 3:17
“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:19
Friends, no more negotiations with God. If God has something he has asked you to do, I recommend yielding to the process of growth and maturity to overcome the adversary.
I released my podcast to my local community on Thursday before the conference, but I had waited for fear, ‘cuz who I am to lead people? Right? Um, No!
Each of us has a gift and hiding does not glorify The Father. In my obedience, God came along side me and healed me Saturday morning. Praise God for His Grace! Thank you Yahshua!
In my experience, The Holy Spirit would take me to scriptures like Ezekiel 15 over and over and look what Benson’s commentary says:
“work? — There are some fruit-trees, the wood of which, if they do not bear fruit, the vine is of no use! Its wood is of no use in building, or in making furniture; nor is it fit for any of the purposes for which the wood of other trees is used. It will not afford even a pin to drive into a wall or post, on which you may safely hang any weight: and, therefore, if the vine do not bring forth grapes it is good for nothing. Behold, it is cast into the fire for fuel — When, for its barrenness, it is cut down, it is only fit to be burned.”
When we don’t use what we are given, it is wasted, burned, and cut down. Have you ever been given an idea to start something, only to find out someone else is doing your exact idea? God will use you, but if you don’t yield, he will ask someone else!
Okay, let’s get back to the conference….
As I was singing and dancing and enjoying the love of God like a blanket, this beautiful saint behind me is singing.
Later, I find out her name is Candace. Awww such a lovely soul! This glorious lady was given a knowing by God as I was kneeling, she came beside me and knelt too!
She was the first to know I was healed. She shared that she too had received healing last fall at a conference.
She arrived on crutches and left walking during corporate praise. She too received a miraculous healing! Her belief foundation existed so she could receive healing for her knee.
I didn’t recognize it at the time, but as we overcome our battle we are given authority out of what we have endured.
As she touched my shoulder while I was praying, God increased and multiplied my fruit right there within in minutes of my healing.
Let me explain my healing — The LORD put his hand on the front of my forehead while I was kneeling in worship.
His Hand is huge. I could feel His hand pressing on the front of my head to cover my temple. He did not leave me even after I got up from kneeling.
I could still feel his hand on my head for several hours as we were released for lunch and into the afternoon session.
I knew as long as His hand was on my temple I had his power flowing right through me. I was able to pray over another dear sister named Megan who needed healing because in the glory, all barriers are taken down.
In The Glory, it doesn’t matter what stage you are in your spiritual journey, your petitions to God are heard through the Spirit.
Megan came out of agreement with the lies sewn into her heart. Every burden melts layer by layer in the Presence of God until only truth stands.
By God’s grace we are given a double portion. I believe Megan was healed right then and there. She walked away changed; confident, empowered and healed too.
We are the almonds budding fruit spoken of in my vision. Both of us sharing so that those who have ears to hear will walk out their own miracle of God in the presence of His Glory.
Can any praise be worthy of The LORD’s majesty? How magnificent His strength! How inscrutable His Wisdom.
Author ~ Augustine
We have an amazing amazing God and He is a God of miracles.
Do you believe it?
Within our spiritual temple we must have these three ingredients ;
1) you have to believe
2) He’s not a God of compromise
3) He’s not a God of coincidence.
He is the God of Glory!
We can’t believe the lies of the world –– there is so much biblical garbage out there, that we can’t even believe in miracles today.
The liar of this world makes us believe we have to be sick, or we can’t get healed or you might receive healing one day.
No, we must come out of agreement with these lies and Go to God!
Let His Spirit teach you everything that’s hidden deep with the chambers of your unconscious mind or Holy of Holies. His Spirit taught me everything I know and share here and I want this for you too.
In fact, all through my journey the Holy Spirit always used the same framework to teach me
- First, He took me to the Word of God — specific story to prepare me.
- Next, I would experience a specific ordained circumstance that aligns with the the prior biblical teaching.
- Then He leads me to a book like the Book by Ruth Ward Heflen who speaks of gold dust in God’s Glory.
I was such a skeptic I would never have read her book prior to my experience!
God is so far ahead of us and he knows all the circumstances and then uses a specific framework for each of us to learn by — and it’s fool proof!
I believe I was healed in that specific time, in that specific way so that others could witness God’s miracles and be awakened.
When miracles happen, everyone listens.
I want to encourage you to find a spirit filled lead group or Church. I know God can heal you at home alone with no one to pray but yourself, but the encouragement of others is very important.
God is looking for a community to bless!
God moves in the corporation of believers to encourage revival.
People are dying without Yahshua and God knows it!
