Who told you Jesus/ Yeshua was white?

I HEAR CHAINS BREAKING…
 
Who told us Jesus was white???
Why do you think they told us that???
Are you thinking… “why does it matter?”
I’ll tell you why, because Jesus said, “THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE!!!”
 
What truths are we missing?
It would seem to be an identity issue… knowing WHOSE YOU ARE and WHO YOU ARE? Even our Lord and Savior dealt with this issue when questioned by some Jewish Leaders according to John 8:32 (KJV) which reads… “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”, but if you read it again in the TPT (The Passion Translation) it reads like this… “For if you embrace the truth, it will release #more #freedom
 
More Freedom… That tells me that things have been kept hidden by those that stand to loose their grip on society.
 
I will be sharing more in the near future… I just want you to think about this. Who told you Jesus (Yeshua) was white? Who would stand to loose in the acknowledging Yeshua as a black man?
 
We have come into a new season of #TRANSFORMATION, that will bring forth #REFORMATION. According to Romans 12:2 we are told (TPT) … Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you; but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think.
 
Who is needing reformation? And Why??? 
 
Before ascending into heaven Jesus gave the disciples a new commandment. John 13:34 (TPT) 34 “So I give you now a new commandment: Love each other just as much as I have loved you. 35 For when you demonstrate the same love I have for you by loving one another, everyone will know that you’re my true followers.”
 
Why did Jesus emphatically want to get this point across to us, to the point he made another commandment? He knew that hatred for others would hold us back from His return.
 
Take a look at Ephesians 2, and then specifically vs 14-15 (TPT) 14 Our reconciling “Peace” is Jesus! He has made Jew and non-Jew one is Christ. By dying as our sacrifice, he has broken down every wall of prejudice that separated us and has now made us equal through our union with Christ. 15 Ethnic hatred has been dissolved by the crucifixion of his precious body on the cross. The legal code that stood condemning every one of us has now been repealed by his command. His triune essence has made peace between us by starting over – forming ONE NEW MAN, Jews and non-Jews fused together!
Who told you that Jesus was white?
THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE… BE #UNCHNED

Putting our relationships in proper alignment…

I HEAR CHAINS BREAKING…
 
Concerning relationship(s), whether marriage/ family/ peers, we must remember to keep our parallel relationship (those around us, left to right or side to side) in perspective horizontally (internal upward sense).
 
Often times without being aware, we have put our spouse/ others ahead of our relationship with God, because we can see with our natural finite eyes the ones in front of us. We are in a sense tricking ourselves in unawares because we don’t “see” God, we have to “seek” God. What does the word of God tell us?
 
Matthew 7:7-8  The Passion Translation (TPT)
7 “Ask, and the gift is yours. Seek, and you’ll discover. Knock, and the door will be opened for you. 8 For every persistent one will get what he asks for. Every persistent seeker will discover what he longs for. And everyone who knocks persistently will one day find an open door.”
 
Webster’s defines SEEK almost the same as the scripture: to #search for (someone or something) : to try to #find (someone or something) : to #ask for (help, advice, etc.) to #try #to #get or achieve (something)
 
Notice the keys are to ask for help (ASK), to search (SEEK) and to try (KNOCK) each one requires our effort and a desire for passionately requiring of a relationship with Father, Son & Holy Spirit. Unfortunately, we can see our spouse/ others with our eyes, so they are in essence getting most of our attention, which over time, if not tended to, pushes God aside. Before we know it, we are wondering… What happened? Where did we go wrong?
 
Where we go wrong is in our own slothfulness/ laziness (sin) in not putting forth true effort towards building on our horizontal relationship (GOD), while expecting our parallel relationships (MANKIND) to have answers to our needs, that can only be gotten from time in a horizontal relationship position… bent knees, heads bowed, hands lifted, voices raised in Praise, to our Heavenly Father, Jesus our Savior and Holy Spirit our helper. FULL RESTORATION can only come in complete surrender to the God-head.
We are #UNCHNED when Holy Spirit teaches us… while building upon our relationship with Thee.

Puzzled in your marriage…

I HEAR CHAINS BREAKING…
 
Here is another key to unlock the chains. Think for a moment about a pile of keys in a drawer. We wouldn’t know right away which key goes to what lock. Keys and Locks are like Pieces of a Puzzle. Just like with keys, not all pieces fit in all places. They may all look alike because they are all pieces, but actually they are somewhat different in that they have different configurations or shapes just like our marriages.
 
1) SHAPES of our marriage
 
·Outies and Innies – Personality differences “outgoing” or “reserved”
·Figurals – pieces that have recognizable differences. These may be more common like financial issues, career struggles, differences in childrearing, extended family interference, religious beliefs, ideas of lovemaking do’s and dont’s, housing differences, transportation lacks, attitudes, hidden agendas, unhealthy friendships, drugs and/ or alcohol problems, etc…
·Interlocking – the pieces fit together so that they do not come apart easily (when we are in agreement)
·Lifted tab – An area in which the surface or the layers of hurts, fears, frustrations have caused separation. This is often caused by carelessness in the marriage union.
·Color Cut – Bi-racial struggles
·Stripcut – Refers to a puzzle which has been cut (or a seemingly severed relationship)
·Pushfit – Refers to a puzzle which has seeming non-interlocking pieces but when forced in they don’t
fit at all.
 
2) People who work on a puzzle have all types of PERSONALITIES (ex. of attacks in relation to our marriage)
 
·piece thief or hoarder- is a person who
a) puts a piece in an area being worked on by another person in the marriage (aka Jezebel) OR
b) hoards all the pieces on one side of the marriage (selfish) OR
c) hides pieces he or she KNOWS other persons is looking for (this person could be angry, resentful, unkind, uncaring)
·busy body – a person who tries many pieces in many spots very rapidly, all over the puzzle, in such a way as to prevent anyone else from being able to place their pieces (STANDER/OW/OM)
·squiggledy piece – a piece with an otherwise hard-to-describe shape (marriage issues seemingly unlike any other)
ETC… Either way, these pieces can be new, slightly worn, or damaged.
 
 
3) WHEN YOU CAN’T QUITE SOLVE THE PUZZLE…Our lives are like that of a puzzle. When we try forcing the pieces into the puzzle often times we find they don’t fit. Either, the edges don’t match, the shape looks right but just doesn’t fit or it’s the wrong piece altogether.
Fitting-Together-the-Puzzle-Pieces-of-Marriage
 
4) UNLOCKING THE CHAINS… It has been my experience in life that when we back away from the puzzle and allow God (the designer/ creator of the masterpiece) to gently place the pieces, they all go perfectly into their rightful place and then once again become a beautiful work of HIS ARTISTRY.
 
5) WHEN WE REST, GOD WORKS… While he is clearing the board, piece by piece, we sit back and study God (His Word), we root Him on (in Praise, Worship & Adoration); Knowing He Designed The Marriage and He Knows How To Put It Back Together.
 
In this, we become #UNCHNED

 

Word of Encouragement for Someone Today…

Psalm 22:3 – Tells us that God inhabits the praises of his people. The definition of “inhabit” is to live inside of, so this scripture means that when we send praises up to God, he comes to meet us and his presence fills us. When I was having a hard time and thought “I CAN’T DO THIS ANYMORE, IT’S TOO MUCH AND MY HUSBAND DOESN’T EVEN CARE”, I would stop and Praise God. Praise God on this side of your mountain, like you already have your… marriage restored. If you will wait on the Holy Spirit to enter in, it will refresh you and you will be strengthened by HIS presence to make it another minute, another hour, another day. Know that when we speak his word over our marriage that HIS words bring forth life and often times our spouse is self-seeking and justifying themselves with their words. NUGGET: GODs Word Wins and Goes Forth to Deliver. <{{{>< #‎UNCHNED

Looking Back… Signs & Wonders

Tennis Balls

I HEARD CHAINS BREAKING… through Signs & Wonders during my STAND for MARRIAGE RESTORATION…

God spoke & continues to speak primarily through His word. God also can use many ways to communicate to His children. You have to be open to see Him in all things. He may speak to one through a Swift, PTL or Covenant Truck or another through a FaceBook post, a billboard or something someone says in the checkout line. He once spoke to me, while looking through a jail cell window and seeing the branches swaying in the wind. That spoke to me that the branches are like arms and the leaves like hands and that all of creation praises Him. The trees swayed back and forth like they were praising God, the Creator of ALL. It reminds me of Luke 19:28-40… In verse 40 Jesus says, “I tell you”, he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”

I believe that God can use things to wink at us. Little nudges from time to time. Signs that make us wonder on Him. But they shouldn’t be sought after as His main way of communicating with you. He speaks through His word, through what His Son accomplished at the cross and confirms these by His Spirit. Jesus brings peace. Confusion is from the enemy.

In the Word of God, we are reminded of many signs. The greatest sign people remember most often is the sign of the rainbow (bow in the clouds) in Genesis 9:14-16. In Mark 16:16-17, Jesus speaks of signs following them that believe. And we are warned in the last days with telltale signs through behaviors in 2 Timothy 3:1-5. Matthew 24:6-8 signs of wars, rumors of wars, famine & earthquakes. If God is showing you something, it will be confirmed in your Spirit with His peace that surpasses all understanding. You won’t have to try to mold it or squeeze it in to fit. Sometimes, will just make sense. Don’t let someone else rob you of what God has shown you. Remember that was for you, from HIM and that they won’t necessarily get it, because it wasn’t for them.

If the Lord has spoken to you through a Swift truck, thank Him, but don’t put Him in a box. He can use other ways to speak, nudge or wink at you. In my Stand for my marriage, there was a season God used tennis balls. ???

During my stand for marriage restoration, I didn’t have what some would call common transportation. It was feet don’t fail me now! Walking on back roads, I would never have seen an 18-wheel truck. One afternoon I needed God to speak pretty quick on a matter and so with childlike faith, I asked him to show me something unusual before I reached the upcoming intersection. I needed to know if walking to visit my husband and children was ok with him & was this possibly His doing. I didn’t want to rush the restoration process. I almost got to the end of the road when I looked over and there laid a tennis ball. There was a golf course nearby, but not a tennis court. I felt I had no other way that day to know if my Father was opening the door for this meeting. As a continued my 5-mile journey to meet my ride to get me to where my family was meeting, I started to doubt the validity of that ball. But God in all his splendor showed me another ball on my journey home, in a remote area, as I took another path back. This would happen from time to time without warning, seeking or continuously asking.

Look for God to speak to you throughout you day. Those tennis balls were winks that I needed in that season. I dated each one and below in the comment is “my proof”, that God can use any sign he chooses to make us wonder on HIM. What He uses or used for one… He may not use for you.

I am reminded by my Dear Friend, Elaine, who picked up this tennis ball picture holder during the time of my STAND. I use it today to remind myself, that I AM NOT OF THIS WORLD & THAT I AM ‪#‎UNCHNED‬ IN HIS PRESENCE!!

CHAIN BREAKERS….

I love this translation of Jesus speaking in Matthew 19:4-6 The Passion Translation (TPT) – 4 “Haven’t you read the Scriptures about creation?” Jesus replied. “The Creator made us male and female from the very beginning, 5 and ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and live with his wife. And the two will become one flesh. 6 From then on, they are no longer two, but united as one. So what God unites ‪#‎let‬ ‪#‎no‬‪#‎one‬ ‪#‎divide‬!”

NO ONE means… Husband, Wife, Judge, Attorney, Family Member, Friend, OW, OM, Pastor, Priest, Rabbi, etc…

Ephesians 5:6 (KJV) – Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

Let no one speak ill against your marriage or stand with lying words, speaking contrary to HIS WORD. God has You and Your Marriage!!
Trust Gods Word and become ‪#‎UNCHNED‬

Pleasing God…

I HEAR CHAINS BREAKING…

My spirit and soul are resting in you, LORD. When we come to a place that what God is doing in me (changes/ stretching/ growth) for His Glory, is MORE important than the RESTORATION of my marriage. God takes notice and will move mountains on our behalf.

When? When it’s right… When it’s ready… When we have passed through the fire and come out on the other side, shining in HIM, willing to lay down even the cross of our marriage, to allow what we have been through and learned, to be an example to others (our message)… WHEN OUR STAND IS MORE ABOUT ‪#‎PLEASING‬ ‪#‎GOD‬ IN EVERY AREA OF OUR LIVES AND KEEPING HIS WORD… THEN OUR DESIRE TO BE RESTORED!!! When we are perfectly fine just being… THE BRIDE of CHRIST!!

Key to Restoration

I HEAR CHAINS BREAKING…

“Keys” or “Hidden Truths” that I believe needs FULL ATTENTION.

wpid-wp-1444321271935.jpg

**Pray & intercede for your spouse (OW/ OM if applicable).

**Focus on you & your relationship with Christ.

**That is ultimately what Christ wants from you.

**Once He’s prepared you, then He will bring your husband/ wife back.

**You’ve got to be spiritually ready to receive him/ her.

**But Gods number one concern is your relationship with Him.

**He can & will restore your marriage but you have to TOTALLY TRUST HIM!!

“THE KEY” TO BEING ‪#‎UNCHNED‬ FROM THE LIES OF SEPARATION & DIVORCE, is what I see that brings about the turning point in every RESTORATION (The Secret to Restoration is hidden in ‪#‎Relationship‬‪#‎with‬ ‪#‎Christ‬). Not for a Healed Marriage, that will just come, but because God is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him. God knows your heart and intention, so be careful not to think you can manipulate God with this Key. Praying today for all broken marriages!! #UNCHNED ~ In His Love, A-M <{{><

Relationship

I HEAR CHAINS BREAKING…

I keep hearing in my Spirit… It’s about Relationship!

If we desire Restoration of our Marital Relationship, we first have to figure out what does Restoration look like? Restoration is the returning of something or someone to their original state intended by God, then perfecting it and making it better than before. In our case, we are needing the relationship with God, Husband & Wife restored. Since our husband or wife is not currently responding in their proper role of the relationship, shouldn’t we be determined to work on the relationship that never leaves us or forsakes us? And since none of us are perfect, why not use this time to work on self. Having said that… What does our relationship with Father God look like?

I will use myself as the example. Right before my husband and I separated, my relationship with God was not as strong as it had been at other times in my life. Often when our relationship with God is strained, every other relationship is not being tended to properly. For instance, after walking with the Lord for 30+ years. I look back at the times when my life has been a mess. Consistently, those are the times when I was wrapped up in me. Yeah, I talked to God, but if I am honest, I wasn’t listening for His response. I just wanted to be heard and I wanted my needs met. On the flip side, when I have made God my #1 priority, he has made me shine, in all aspects of life. With my husband, my children, my parent’s and siblings, most of the time I know how they are going to respond before they speak, I know their mannerism’s, I know what pleases them and what anger’s them, because I have time invested with them. We have grown together, cried together, laughed together, rejoiced and celebrated together. We have spent years together communicating.

Our Heavenly Father, desires us to know Him that same way and even deeper. He created us, he has a purpose and a plan for our lives, but how often during our lifetime have we asked Him… What does He want from us? And when He tells us, do we meet His need. Do we even consider what he is asking us to do for him? Do we even ask His opinion in a matter or do we just ask Him to fill our request. Our relationship with God is not just about getting our needs met. It is about meeting His needs as well. He wants your undivided attention. He wants your heart. Think of it this way… what if you had a parent, a spouse or a child that only spoke to you when they needed you. They never asked for your opinion unless it benefitted them. There was no sustenance in the communication. That would be painful. We invest in them, but they don’t reciprocate. Do you ever think how that makes the Lord feel?

We were made in the image of Elohim God and Jesus Christ. In the very beginning, Genesis 1:26, the very first part says… And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: So then where do we think we get an understand of how to relate with one another? We got it from God, yet we don’t think we need to tend to the one that gave us life. ??? Some examples of what a Relationship with God, Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit looks like are: 1) Praising God, in speech and song, for HIS goodness towards us in word and deed, 2) Thanking HIM for the things HE has already done in our lives and the things HE is doing on our behalf that maybe we can’t yet see. 3) Studying the Word of God, getting to know His character, His love for His followers, what He expects of His children. How are you to know about God unless you study how GOD WORKS. 4) Praying … sharing ALL your hopes, dreams, fears, concerns, cares, wants and listening for HIS response. 5) It’s about being a do’er of the word LOVE, not just needing to receive love from Him and others.

It is through this RELATIONSHIP that GOD RESTORES US. Once we are restored then he can use our growth to allow others to see that we are different, changed, they will see something in you that they can’t find in this world. They will be drawn to you because the Spirit of God is now sharpened and crafted within you. Restore the most important relationship you could ever have, which is with God, and the rest will fall into place.‪#‎UNCHNED‬ (through relationship with God)

Psalm 139:14 (KJV) I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Work vs. Rest

I HEAR CHAINS BREAKING…

I have been facing a challenge for the past 4 months that has the ability to change my world as I know it. Knowing that God told me TO STAND, I have been leaning not on my own understanding but on HIS WORD (written & spoken). I asked my closest Sister’s In Christ to pray about this situation. And the response was way more than… I guess I expected. I found in that unity a Great Cloud of Witness. This morning as I wake I reflect on His Love for me and all the things I have seen him bring to pass as I patiently wait on Him to do what only He can do. As I was preparing breakfast for my family, I heard the nudge of the Holy Spirit remind me that even though this may seem different than when you were standing for your marriage, it is the same concept.

You Rest – I Work. You work – I Rest.
(ie; me wringing my hands, me being anxious, me analyzing the what if’s).

I guess I didn’t see that the process is the same. I thought it was different maybe because I knew that in marriage restoration it is about the enemy dividing what God joined together and made one. But the point is that the enemy uses the same tactics he always has for thousands of years. He has no new strategies. But with God the one who created the Heaven’s and the Earth, he can create a new/ fresh strategy specific for our need. Don’t work on your behalf, when you can be resting in His Ability to take something and make it HIS STORY!! ‪#‎UNCHNED‬
