RISE UP!

By Tiffany Bretana

Rise up in the resurrection of the Christ. See your dreams planted in the soil where His blood was spilt. See the ground that once was cursed, is NOW blessed on your behalf. Rise up in the Blessing that was purchased with a price. He is the Resurrection & the Life.

Jesus said to her, “I am the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, relies on) Me [as Savior] will live even if he dies; 26 and everyone who lives and believes in Me [as Savior] will never die. Do you believe this?” John 11:25-26

The Author & Finisher

By Tiffany Bretana

The other night, while on a prayer call, I was given a vision of a hospital room that was dark. Then the Lord reminded me of the woman with the issue of blood. She had gone to the doctors for years, seeking out medical attention, looking to the world’s doctors for answers. But she was the none the better, but as scripture says she grew worse. (Matthew 9:20–22, Mark 5:25–34, Luke 8:43–48). The Lord said this is a picture prophetically of the church. Then I saw this woman receiving CPR to resuscitate her.

The Lord says to the body of Christ, Stop looking and striving to receive the world for the answers, I AM THE ANSWER. The world could not bring you to salvation, I AM THE SAVIOR. The world can not give you wisdom, for it’s wisdom is futile, I have been made to be your Wisdom. The world can’t deliver you, I am your Deliverer/Deliverance.

The Lord says I delight Myself to show Myself strong on your behalves.

When the woman with the issue of blood REMEMBERED how she had heard about the Lord and how it is written about Him in Malachi 4:2, But for you who fear My name [with awe-filled reverence] the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go forward and leap [joyfully] like calves [released] from the stall. She grabbed the hem of His garment BY FAITH, and …… healing virtue flowed. To stop her flow of blood, she had to receive from the flow (the truth of HIS word – logos made rhema-) of GOD.

Hebrews 12:2 [looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work].

I am by no means saying that anyone should stop seeking medical attention, you need to SEEK the Lord in regards to that.

EXPECT TO RECEIVE YOUR BREAKTHROUGH

By Tiffany Bretana

On my way to work this morning, the Lord quickened two things to me. I have about a 45+ minute commute each way. This morning as I was driving to work, the first thing the Lord quickened to me was a van/truck that had huge AR initials on it. Immediately, I heard the words accounts receivable. I asked the Lord what He was speaking about this. He impressed upon me, tell My body EXPECT TO RECEIVE. Too many of My body feel like they are in the accounts payable department, when I the Lord have paid the price. All things MUST BE RECEIVED. Healing, deliverance, salvation, promises, prophetic words, revelations, ….. ALL THINGS!!! Freely I have given, freely receive. The enemy would have you to believe you must earn or work for these things, that’s a spirit of religion. Yes some things are conditional, but it is the love of GOD that constrains you to good works. Faith without works is dead. It’s a matter of the heart. For with the heart one believes in Christ, RESULTING IN ………

Then not too shortly after that I was driving in my way, and a semi truck cab had written on its door BREAKTHRU. It completely caught me off guard, and when I saw it, I was like oh wow Lord because it was that moment when you know the Lord just spoke something and your heart skips a beat. 😊

The Lord is saying being expectant to receive your breakthrough!!!

Do I think this is coincidental to Easter/Passover being this weekend? I once heard a televangelist say that in the Hebrew language there is no such thing as the word for coincidence but “mikreh”. Mikreh means it happened by GOD or a GOD happening.

Romans 8:32-35

He who did not spare [even] His own Son, but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against God’s elect (His chosen ones)? It is God who justifies us [declaring us blameless and putting us in a right relationship with Himself]. Who is the one who condemns us? Christ Jesus is the One who died [to pay our penalty], and more than that, who was raised [from the dead], and who is at the right hand of God interceding [with the Father] for us. Who shall ever separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?

2 Corinthians 5:14-15

For the love of Christ controls and compels us, because we have concluded this, that One died for all, therefore all died; and He died for all, so that all those who live would no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and was raised for their sake.

Romans 10:8-11

But what does it say? “ The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart ”—that is, the word [the message, the basis] of faith which we preach— because if you acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord [recognizing His power, authority, and majesty as God], and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart a person believes [in Christ as Savior] resulting in his justification [that is, being made righteous—being freed of the guilt of sin and made acceptable to God]; and with the mouth he acknowledges and confesses [his faith openly], resulting in and confirming [his] salvation. For the Scripture says, “ Whoever believes in Him [whoever adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him] will not be disappointed [in his expectations].”

GOD IS WORKING

By Tiffany Bretana

Yesterday, I went to the beach with my girls. I wanted to spend some quality time with them since I started working a new job. It has been quite an adjustment for all of us, even our dog 🐶. It was a wonderful time spent with my girls. The weather was awesome, in the mid 70’s with clear blue skies with the beautiful sun out.

We really didn’t feel the heat of the sun at all. I had decided to forgo putting sunscreen on, as we only planned on being at the beach for two hours. But afterwards when we got home, my youngest and I felt the effects of not putting the sunscreen on for those two hours. I was not thinking upon it too much. But this morning, the Lord spoke to me.

He said tell my people ….. just because nothing seems to be changing or working, doesn’t mean that is the truth. I am working behind the scenes, beyond what you can see or perceive with your natural eyes. Just as you can’t see the sun having it’s affect, even when it seems cooler out, and the sun doesn’t seem to be having it’s full effect. I am working!!! Rest in My faithfulness to do My own Word. I am a DOER of My own Word. I say what I mean, and I mean what I say!!! And it will accomplish that which I have sent it out forth to accomplish.

Hebrews 11:1-12 Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. For by this [kind of] faith the men of old gained [divine] approval. By faith [that is, with an inherent trust and enduring confidence in the power, wisdom and goodness of God] we understand that the worlds (universe, ages) were framed and created [formed, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose] by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible. By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which it was testified of him that he was righteous (upright, in right standing with God), and God testified by accepting his gifts. And though he died, yet through [this act of] faith he still speaks. By faith [that pleased God] Enoch was caught up and taken to heaven so that he would not have a glimpse of death; and he was not found because God had taken him; for even before he was taken [to heaven], he received the testimony [still on record] that he had walked with God and pleased Him. But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him. By faith [with confidence in God and His word] Noah, being warned by God about events not yet seen, in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his family. By this [act of obedience] he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness which comes by faith. By faith Abraham, when he was called [by God], obeyed by going to a place which he was to receive as an inheritance; and he went, not knowing where he was going. By faith he lived as a foreigner in the promised land, as in a strange land, living in tents [as nomads] with Isaac and Jacob, who were fellow heirs of the same promise. For he was [waiting expectantly and confidently] looking forward to the city which has foundations, [an eternal, heavenly city] whose architect and builder is God. By faith even Sarah herself received the ability to conceive [a child], even [when she was long] past the normal age for it, because she considered Him who had given her the promise to be reliable and true [to His word]. So from one man, though he was [physically] as good as dead, were born as many descendants as the stars of heaven in number, and innumerable as the sand on the seashore.

2 Corinthians 5:7 for we walk by faith, not by sight [living our lives in a manner consistent with our confident belief in God’s promises]—

✨Word of the Lord ~ March 21, 2018✨

By Tiffany Bretana

While in prayer, the Lord revealed that many of you have felt as Cinderella …. feeling overburdened by working and working for the evil stepmother and stepsisters. The Lord says the tables are turning and your story is turning …. as it soon will be revealed, for I own it all and I have it laid it all up for you.

John 16:15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Because of this I said that He [the Spirit] will take from what is Mine and will reveal it to you.

🙌🏼✨🙌🏼✨🙌🏼✨🙌🏼✨🙌🏼✨🙌🏼

Then I was given a vision of angels, host of angels with arrows drawn in their bows. The Lord has sent the angelic host to protect and defend and pushback the hand of the enemy.

2 Kings 6:16-17 So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, and said, “ Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

🙌🏼✨🙌🏼✨🙌🏼✨🙌🏼✨🙌🏼✨🙌🏼

Then I was given a vision of seeing things through a red tint. The Lord says see things through the blood of Lamb. The enemy has made you to feel like your destiny is like Swiss cheese with holes in it, but there is nothing My blood does not cover.

Exodus 12:13 The blood shall be a sign for you on [the doorposts of] the houses where you live; when I see the blood I shall pass over you, and no affliction shall happen to you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.

🙌🏼✨🙌🏼✨🙌🏼✨🙌🏼✨🙌🏼✨🙌🏼

The enemy also has many of you feeling like you are in a proverbial tennis match, where you hit the ball into the enemies court and he hits it back, and it has become this back and forth game. But I heard the Lord say SET – LOVE. In tennis, a set is a series of matches that one must one must win, and love in tennis means a score of zero. But the Lord is saying I have SET (won on your behalf) My love upon you, and when the enemy thinks he has the upper-hand, he shall be put to nought. Because of the Lord’s love for us, the enemy has no advantage over us.

LOVE (God) NEVER FAILS!!!

1 Corinthians 13:8

Deuteronomy 7:7-10 The Lord did not SET His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples; but because the Lord loves you, and because He would keep the oath which He swore to your fathers, the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. “Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments; and He repays those who hate Him to their face, to destroy them. He will not be slack with him who hates Him; He will repay him to his face.

Romans 8:35-39 Who shall ever separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? Just as it is written and forever remains written, “ For Your sake we are put to death all day long; We are regarded as sheep for the slaughter .” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors and gain an overwhelming victory through Him who loved us [so much that He died for us]. For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced—beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

1 Corinthians 2:7-9 but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the wisdom once hidden [from man, but now revealed to us by God, that wisdom] which God predestined before the ages to our glory [to lift us into the glory of His presence]. None of the rulers of this age recognized and understood this wisdom; for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory; but just as it is written [in Scripture], “ Things which the eye has not seen and the ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man , All that God has prepared for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, who obey Him, and who gratefully recognize the benefits that He has bestowed].”

Then I saw a vision of a SOS smoke signal …. the Lord says I have seen and heard the incense of your prayers, tears, and intercession. You are not on a deserted island. I will never leave you, nor forsake you.

Revelation 8:4-5 And the smoke and fragrant aroma of the incense, with the prayers of the saints (God’s people), ascended before God from the angel’s hand. So the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it to the earth; and there were peals of thunder and loud rumblings and sounds and flashes of lightning and an earthquake.
