DON’T COUNT THEM OUT 

The Lord’s Army 

The Outcasts & Misfits are coming forth as Mighty Men and Women of the Lord 

By Tiffany Bretana
I went to my daughter’s middle school for open house tonight. Wow!!! How middle schools have changed!!! But yet again, I was one of the shortest ones there. I could practically be a 6th grader by height alone. 😆Hehehehe!!!  

Something’s do not change even we get older. There were the parent cliques and there were the ones that don’t exactly fit in any group….the misfits and the outcasts, the ones that most people would dismiss. It even happens in families. Think of any social setting and you’re bound to have some scenario come to mind.  

The Lord says …….

Many of My children have felt like they do not belong. They don’t quite fit in with the world …. not that they would want to conform to it….. but at the same time, they don’t feel like they fit in with the church. Many of you had to be trained on the backside of the wilderness. Here is where the Lord spoke to you privately and intimately, where religious traditions were not learned. Some of you didn’t even learn all that came with religion. In the wilderness, you were taught one thing, one thing is needful, to sit at the Lord’s feet. You required of Him to be your everything!!! 

I am speaking to the David’s, by the Word of the Lord ……. 

Think it not strange of the fiery trial you have found yourself in. You needed to be able to know what it is to be the spiritual misfit and outcast that you may lead and guide My misfits and outcasts out of the cave. You too, were persecuted, rejected, and despised by your own running into the cave yourself. You will lead them and you will guide them. You shall raise up Mighty Men and Woman of the Lord, the Lord’s army. You shall lead them to do mighty exploits in My Name.  

1 Samuel 22:1-2 David therefore departed from there and escaped to the cave of Adullam. So when his brothers and all his father’s house heard it, they went down there to him. And everyone who was in distress, everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented gathered to him. So he became captain over them. And there were about four hundred men with him. 

2 Samuel 23:8 These are the names of the mighty men whom David had

HUMBLED & EXALTED 

by Tiffany Bretana Yesterday night, as I was praying I received a vision of people in a salad spinner. As it was spinning, people were being pressed with their faces against the inner colander. I guess you could say like the theme park ride, Gravitron. 

When I saw the word PRESS……  

I heard the Lord say …….  

You have felt like things were out of control, spinning around. You’ve had to shut your eyes to the things that were seen, to focus on the UNSEEN. You had to be singular in your focus, keeping your eyes FIXED ON ME.  

But the PRESS was ……. LET THIS MIND BE IN YOU THAT WAS IN CHRIST JESUS.  

🔹LET THIS MIND BE IN YOU WHICH WAS ALSO IN CHRIST JESUS🔹

You have had to let go, crucify, and cast down every thought, imagination, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. MANY times it meant not having an opinion, other than the Lord’s.  

🔹WHO, BEING IN THE FORM OF GOD🔹

This was the recognition and acceptance of Christ in you, you abide in Him, He abides in you, You are One.  

🔹DID NOT CONSIDER IT ROBBERY TO BE EQUAL TO GOD🔹

You have the confident expectation/hope that when God told you to say or do something that it would be just as effective as if God said it or did it Himself.  

🔹BUT MADE HIMSELF OF NO REPUTATION, TAKING THE FORM OF A BONDSERVANT, AND COMING IN THE LIKENESS OF MEN🔹

You humbled yourself to point to say what God said, and did what God told you to do, IRREGARDLESS if it was met with opposition or adulation. Holding everything loosely.

🔹AND BEING FOUND IN THE APPEARANCE OF MAN, HE HUMBLED HIMSELF AND BECAME OBEDIENT TO THE POINT OF DEATH, EVEN THE DEATH OF THE CROSS🔹  

You accepted the crucifixion, of whether it was losing family, friends, and peers, or things of this world. The persecution that came with being one with HIM, being His.  

⭐️Philippians 2:5-11 HUMBLED & EXALTED ⭐️
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
