Ancient Gates Reopened & the Persecuted Church Protected

By Tiffany Bretana & Rebecca Lynn Dixon

On Friday evening, another prophetic intercessor and myself were in intercession.

🔹China’s Ancient Gates have been Reopened🔹

While we were praying, the Lord revealed to me ancient gates in the clouds. These gates were associated with China. There were people called at that time diviners, prophets of God in Ancient China. *What most people don’t know is that some of first written records in the Chinese language supports the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The Chinese characters for their language is pictorial, much like the Hebrew characters for the Hebrew language. These gates had closed at some point in time. As we continued in intercession, the Lord began to lead us into an act of repentance on behalf or our ancestors. We began to war on behalf of those called to inherit generational blessings, declaring that the gate be reopened and for the gates that had been opened by the enemy to be shut, sealed by the blood of Jesus, and guarded. I was shown angels with harps that were ushering in. Rebecca saw a large Angel holding an illuminated sword to the cheeks of imps and to the cheek of a dragon, daring them to open their mouths, lest they sever their jaws. She was watching things become……. they were put in shackles and chains and being led away. I heard the Lord say that the entrance of the gospel can go into China.

🔹Creative Miracles and the Persecuted Church in Sudan🔹

Then we continued praying I heard the word Sudanese, and while looking up it’s geographical area I discovered it’s in northeast Africa. Then the subject of the persecuted Christians came up. The Lord reminded me of a scripture He had me to post recently, so I started declaring it over the oppressed and persecuted Christians in Sudan.

The Lord shall make you to rule over your oppressors

Then people will take them and bring them to their place, and the house of Israel will possess them for servants and maids in the land of the Lord; they will take them captive whose captives they were, and rule over their oppressors. It shall come to pass in the day the Lord gives you rest from your sorrow, and from your fear and the hard bondage in which you were made to serve Isaiah 14:2-3

Rebecca started declaring creative miracles over the persecuted Christians, and saw that limbs would grow miraculously in front of those who were cutting them off in an effort to torture those who so willingly give their lives for the gospel. And then I saw a wall of invisibility before these persecuted Christians that bullets that were being shot, could not penetrate through this wall. I continued praying a little astonished what I was seeing, but the Lord told me Tiffany this is real. Then Rebecca started to relate to me how this had occurred in Israel with an account that John Hagee had told of. Then, I saw an angel with wings of fire come down onto the land. I was calling forth angels to patrol and for the defense of these people. The Lord said that this would be reported as something else, like a missile strike of some sort, and that there was a tank that has seen it. The Lord says the region has been shaken. The infrastructure shall fall! Then I heard the Lord say ….. unstable in all it’s ways!!!! A quote from James 1:7-8, For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. Rebecca confirmed she had heard that bible verse earlier that day independently.

I then heard the Lord say starfish, and then saw the pointed tips of the starfish being cut off, where the tentacles are. I had no idea why the Lord randomly brought up a starfish. Upon research, I found prophetically speaking, this is much a picture of the Christian church, as the starfish. When a starfish loses one of it’s limbs, it will grow a new limb in it’s place and if any piece has a part of the central disc of the starfish, it will grow a entirely new starfish completely. Wow 😲This was a confirmation to what Rebecca had seen and declared about creative miracles in regards to these persecuted Christians being created and growing supernaturally in its place.

It is time for the body of Christ to rise up and come in agreement for the things that are on the Lord’s heart for intercession.

CUTTING THE BOX OF RELIGION

By Tiffany Bretana

I saw in a vision a box cutter, then I saw the Lord take this box cutter and take it to the four corners of the box called religion. He cut the four corners vertically.

I hear the Lord saying……

When you have been boxed in for so long, you had no option but to look up to those who were on top. But I am cutting the box of religion. I am releasing My people. They shall spill out of this box of religion. Everyone will be on the same level, where My people will no longer be hierarchical but will share amongst themselves all things, all things that they have in common. I see in this vision when the box walls fall down, new dimensions were open to the body of Christ.

Then last night, I saw in a vision a Holy Spirit wave that was coming but the front of the wave was an excavator that you would see on one of those yellow bulldozer.

The Lord is very intentional about removing the mountain of religion that has kept His body bound without seeing the Power of God onto Salvation, the Gospel. He is removing all the stones that others have heaped onto the simplicity of the True Gospel, bringing heavy loads onto His people they were never suppose to carry.

There will be such a revealing in this hour. As the Lord was having me to meditate on the fact, that the Apostle Paul penned the divine mysteries in the written word for the body of Christ to see and behold. Jesus even stated the religious mindset is spiritually blind to see that which is before them as they poured over the scriptures yet could not see that it all pointed to Him. He is opening eyes to see, ears to hear, and hearts to perceive in this hour.

For many …. I hear the Lord saying …… “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now, John 16:12.

However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you. John 16:13-15

AND …. even as I sit hear worshipping before the Lord, He reminds you and I the simplicity of the Gospel, TO RECEIVE.

But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:42

Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.” And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:38-42

MY PEACE I GIVE TO YOU

By Tiffany Bretana

This morning, I’m listening to a beautiful song that a friend sent me, Whispers by Jason Upton. As I was listening to it, I was taken into a vision of being on a rooftop of a tall building that overlooked on all sides the skyline of New York City. I was spinning around with my arms wide open, the sense I was given was that of the world is my oyster. The phrase the world is your oyster means you are in a position to take the opportunities that life has to offer.

Let’s read that the Way, the Lord quickened it to me ……. you are in a position to TAKE (the violent take it by force, Matthew 11:12) the opportunities that LIFE (I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, John 14:6) has to offer.

What is the Lord saying in this?

The Lord is saying ……..I have given you ALL things that pertains to life and godliness. There is not one area, not one place that My Kingdom does not touch. The earth and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein are Mine says the Lord. Then I was reminded of the movie Lion King, when Mufasa said to Simba, “Look, Simba, everything the light touches is our kingdom”.

The Lord told me the other day, Put on immortality!!! That totally caught me off guard and shocked me when He said it. I said, Yes Lord, I put on immortality in Jesus Name. The Lord is telling us to put on everlasting life, eternal life, where everlasting life eats up everything that is associated with death, the fall, and the grave.

John 1:4 In Him was life [and the power to bestow life], and the life was the Light of men.

I was given another vision, of 2 kids on the playground. The first child was saying, well My Daddy said…… and then the second child said, well my daddy said. The Lord is saying putting on Sonship as you put on the Lord Jesus Christ, as a garment, knowing that our Heavenly Father is backing every word that the Son says. The Lord bequeath to us by inheritance us, His Peace (John 14:27). The Lord’s peace that he bequeathed to us, is the word shalom. Shalom is a very rich word, but simply stated means nothing lacking, wanting, or missing. The peace that the Lord had with the Heavenly Father, was one where He knew the Father would supply all of His needs….. nothing lacking, wanting, or missing, and He gave it to us as a possession by inheritance to have. The enemy, the father of lies, can not tell the truth, because there is no truth in him. The enemy of our soul is limited. Our God is unlimited. We need to renew our minds, casting down vain imaginations, and every high thing that tries to exalt itself against the knowledge of God, and even everything that tries to diminish the truth that we are partakers of His divine nature.

Greater is He that is in you, then he who is of the world.

1 John 4:4 Little children (believers, dear ones), you are of God and you belong to Him and have [already] overcome them [the agents of the antichrist]; because He who is in you is greater than he (Satan) who is in the world [of sinful mankind].

Let everlasting life (the Lord) consume all that comes against you (he who is of the world).

John 1:5 The Light shines on in the darkness, and the darkness did not understand it or overpower it or appropriate it or absorb it [and is unreceptive to it].

Psalm 145:13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.

THERE SHALL BE NO END TO THE INCREASE OF HIS GOVERNMENT.

Isaiah 9:6-7 For to us a Child shall be born, to us a Son shall be given; And the government shall be upon His shoulder, And His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. There shall be no end to the increase of His government and of peace, [He shall rule] on the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From that time forward and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this.

SING TO THE LORD A NEW SONG …. THE WARRIOR WILL ARISE

By Tiffany Bretana

The Lord is adding to our warfare strategies and arsenal …….

A couple of days ago, the Lord showed me a new strategy in spiritual warfare, especially in intercession. I’m sure this is not new for some, but it definitely was for me. I am humble enough to say I don’t know it all, but am always open for God to reveal, show, and teach me something new. In fact, those who know me best, know that I get really excited when the Lord shows me something new. I’m like a little girl who just received a present from her Heavenly Father.

There have been times in times past where I was praising and worshipping before the Lord, to a song that is on my playlist, and at times the Lord would give me the distinct impression that I was interceding while doing so, for a specific person or situation. A prophetic intercessor & close friend had confirmed it to me that I was doing as such. And there are at times, I want that confirmation in the Word.

On Tuesday, I was watching something about singing a new song to the Lord. And quite honestly, I didn’t think that would be me. Then the Lord reminded me I had done it in times past. You see, after my two girls were born, I would sing to them to put them to bed. I eventually got into the habit of making my own words to go to the melody of a nursery rhyme. Why? Because I can and I wanted the song to be personal to my girls. 😊

The other day, I was getting hit pretty hard with spiritual warfare. My friend had sent me a soaking soundtrack from youtube and I started playing it for a couple of seconds, and fell in love with it immediately. So then, I decided to go into my bedroom and shut the door. I felt a shift in the spirit realm as soon as I shut the door. I knew I was going to have an encounter of some sort. So I started playing the soaking music and then I started singing adlib, praises to the Lord to the soaking music. But while doing this, my body felt like an instrument. I could feel the reverberation, vibration, frequency, and resonation coursing through my body while I was singing a new song onto the Lord.

A new song is spontaneous song that you sing to the Lord, no written lyrics to refer to or from, but adlibbing, free flow song of praise, worship, and/or prayer/declaration.

After this, I had total peace. The peace of God that surpasses all understanding.

But then that same night, a close friend of mine requested prayer, as he was under heavy warfare himself. So I started interceding, praying in tongues. But then, the Lord said, No, I want you to SING A NEW SONG over him. Ummmmmm ok Lord!!! The Lord said, Tiffany – you’re a holy disrupter, an atmosphere changer. So I proceeded as asked. But, while doing so the same reverberation, vibration, frequency, and resonation was coursing through my body again. I was prompted to lay hands on this person in the spirit realm over his mind and heart. I was also receiving visions of these harassing demons were so disturbed that they were shuddering, covering their ears, and could do nothing else but flee.

Later on, my close friend informed me that the warfare had mostly broken off. Praise the Lord! Thank You Lord Jesus! HALLELUJAH!

The next morning, I was doing some laundry and the Lord said, Tiffany … I was singing with you as you were interceding & singing a new song over him. Then, the Lord instructed me to look it up in Zephaniah 3:17.

Zephaniah 3:17

The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”

The Lord is reminding me even now how He had instructed me a couple weeks back, to play music set at 444 MHz – the key of David and make prophetic declarations over myself and those He’s specifically called me to pray over. Which I had.

Isaiah 42:10-13

Sing to the Lord a new song, Sing His praise from the end of the earth! You who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, You islands and coastlands, and those who inhabit them [sing His praise]! Let the wilderness and its cities lift up their voices, The villages where Kedar lives. Let the inhabitants of Sela shout for joy, Let them shout joyfully from the tops of the mountains. Let them give glory to the Lord And declare His praise in the islands and coastlands. The Lord will go forth like a warrior, He will stir up His zeal like a man of war; He will shout out, yes, He will raise a war cry. He will prevail [mightily] against His enemies.

Psalm 144:9-10

I will sing a new song to You, O God; On a harp of ten strings I will sing praises to You, The One who gives salvation to kings, Who delivers David His servant From the deadly sword.

2 Corinthians 10:3-6

For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man. The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ, being ready to punish every act of disobedience, when your own obedience [as a church] is complete.

ETERNAL GLORY

By Tiffany Bretana

Whew!!! The last 7 weeks have been STRENUOUS. I am currently taking a course that has definitely STRETCHED me and at times very much overwhelmed me, in the midst of many other things that the Lord has assigned me to do, spiritual warfare on so many different fronts, the surmounting pressures from family, friends, and issues of life, and some very natural things that is my everyday responsibility.

Today, I started pondering upon these things, as I just finished up my course work ahead of time, thus far. But God started talking to me in these things. At times we can feel crushed by the sheer weight of all these things, desperately looking for a reprieve from it all. You see before taking this course, I asked the Father, should I take this course. His answer was to SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND ALL THESE THINGS WILL BE ADDED ONTO YOU – Matthew 6:33. Oh boy, there was times I just wanted to throw in the proverbial towel or even runaway from it all. But I knew if the Father asked me to do it, He would empower me by His grace to sustain me and be able to complete it.

Then the Lord started talking to me about the eternal glory that He is producing within us, that it is working within us in sharing in His joy. When Jesus endured the cross, He looked past the suffering He would have to endure, to the Joy. The Joy he saw, was you and I. As it was with the Apostle Paul. Just as when we endure the trials and tribulations, if we will look past it, and see the ones ahead of us whom by the trials and tribulations we endure, which will encourage others behind us to keep going, persevering, don’t drop your hope, don’t give in or give up. Each one of us has influence and an audience whether we see it or not, believers and nonbelievers alike. Our lives before them is the living epistle before them. KEEP GOING!!! There’s GLORY AT THE END OF IT!!!

For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable. 2 Corinthians 4:17-18

✨CREATE WITH GOD✨

By Tiffany Bretana

On Wednesday, I was praying and I was given a vision of a scene from the movie, the Neverending Story (1984). There is a part in the movie where the Princess has a golden piece of sand in her hand and the main character Bastian is standing before her asking her what this is. The Princess relates to Bastian that this one grain of sand is all that remains of her vast empire. There was another character in the movie, the Nothing, which is the antagonist in this movie. The Nothing was destroying the Princess’ empire that were created by her dreams and wishes. What fueled the Nothing’s power of destruction was apathy, cynicism, and the denial of childish dreams”. In the movie, the Nothing is depicted as a tremendous, chaotic storm, covering the sky with dark clouds, winds, earthquakes and lightning; or a destructive presence that tears everything and leaves a dark void on its wake. There is much parallelism in this movie in regards to living by faith, if one was to take a moment to ponder upon it.

Speak forth by faith the Kingdom of Heaven which is within you.

He gave them another parable [to consider], saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field; 32 and of all the seeds [planted in the region] it is the smallest, but when it has grown it is the largest of the garden herbs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air find shelter in its branches.” Matthew 13:31-32

The seed of faith can accomplish amazing miraculous things.

He answered, “Because of your little faith [your lack of trust and confidence in the power of God]; for I assure you and most solemnly say to you, if you have [living] faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and [if it is God’s will] it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. Matthew 17:20

Be imitators of God and speak into creation/existence.

In the beginning God ( Elohim ) created [by forming from nothing] the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void or a waste and emptiness, and darkness was upon the face of the deep [primeval ocean that covered the unformed earth]. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. God saw that the light was good (pleasing, useful) and He affirmed and sustained it; and God separated the light [distinguishing it] from the darkness. Genesis 1:1-4

Elohim is a plural form of the word God. We were with Him before the foundation of the world.

Blessed and worthy of praise be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ, just as [in His love] He chose us in Christ [actually selected us for Himself as His own] before the foundation of the world, so that we would be holy [that is, consecrated, set apart for Him, purpose-driven] and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined and lovingly planned for us to be adopted to Himself as [His own] children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the kind intention and good pleasure of His will— to the praise of His glorious grace and favor, which He so freely bestowed on us in the Beloved [His Son, Jesus Christ]. Ephesians 1:3-6

We are made in His likeness and image, we do as we see the Father doing, and we say what the Father says.

Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, “You are gods”’? If He called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.” John 10:34-38

You have more power and authority then you know, tend and keep what you want to see before you.

So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them. And God blessed them [granting them certain authority] and said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subjugate it [putting it under your power]; and rule over (dominate) the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and every living thing that moves upon the earth.” Genesis 1:27-28

The Lord is saying ……. use your God like and given faith and imagination and create. I have given you the gift of vision, imagination, and creativity. In the Beginning, I had within Myself a vision of what I wanted to see, when the earth was formless and void or a waste and emptiness, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. I spoke what I envisioned and the Heavens and the Earth was created and planted. You have been made in My likeness and image. I have made you a tender and a keeper. Call forth those things that be not as though they were. I call forth your Godly imagination to be stirred up, and SPEAK…….

BE LOVE IN ACTION 

By Tiffany Bretana 

I hear the Lord say ……. BE LOVE IN ACTION!!! Let your light so shine before men, that they will want to know Me. Yes there will be those who will attempt to vilify you. But I am your source of ALL referral, self and otherwise. I never intended for your referral to come from any outward sources as Adam and Eve conceded, but My constant unconditional love flowing within you, flowing outwardly. I have begotten you in My sacrificial love for you. My perfect and complete love for you casts out all fear.   

When you refer to My deep abiding love from within you, you will see and know My heart for yourself and others. Be the love that dispels the darkness.  

My Perfect Love for you is:   

excellent or complete beyond practical or theoretical improvement

entirely without any flaws, defects, or shortcomings

thorough; complete; utter

pure or unmixed

unqualified; absolute

unmitigated – not softened or lessened
    

STEP OUT IN FAITH

By Tiffany Bretana

Today, the cable company came out since we were having issues with our wifi service for the last month or so. While, they were in the hallway, one of the men noticed, I have a super-sized post it on my bedroom door with Amos 9:11-15. So it started a conversation between my father and the two men. Hahahaha, I took it quite literally in the Word, when it says in Deuteronomy 6:9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. I heard my father speaking to the cable technician men about God. Of course, my ears perked up. Immediately, my reaction was Lord give me a word for them, so that they maybe blessed and they know You are intimately involved in the affairs of men.

Daniel 4:17 ‘This decision is by the decree of the watchers, And the sentence by the word of the holy ones, In order that the living may know That the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, Gives it to whomever He will, And sets over it the lowest of men.’

They needed to get a new modem for our house, since our modem was several years old, so they left to retrieve it from someone else. The Lord started downloading somethings about these two gentleman. I started writing them down. They return and start replacing the old modem with the new. I stepped out in faith in front of door to my father’s office and asked the gentlemen, if I could ask them a few questions. Immediately, I ask the first technician how long he’s been working with the company. He answers 6 years. I said ok the Lord told me to tell you for the last 12 years you have been overlooked for promotion 5 times, he confirms it. And I further relate to him what the Lord had given for me to say. Then I told the second gentleman, the Lord showed me a motherly figure in your family who has an eye or eye socket issue and the Lord wants to heal that. He confirmed that his grandmother did. Then I started to relate the rest as the Lord spoke to me …… “If there is a prophet among you, I the Lord will make Myself known to him in a vision And I will speak to him in a dream, Numbers 12:6. I said to him, you have received visions and dreams. He confirmed that he had and started to relate to me some of his dreams. The conversation quickly went from WiFi to speaking about the things of God. The first gentleman was telling me that he owned an internet Christian based radio station and that I should look into it. Hehehehehe – the goodness of God.

This was a divine appointment as originally the service call was set for yesterday at 8:30 am but my father had received a confirmation email from the cable company for service between the hours of 4:30-8:30 pm. My father was not happy with the timeframe and rescheduled the call for this morning. The two gentleman who came today do not normally work in my residential area and were called to help today in my area. The two gentleman both commented that this was a divine setup. They both related to me that prior to coming to my house they were speaking about God. I was joking with them and said I guess you didn’t expect 5’1 little old me coming and bringing a word from the Lord. They were blessed. The best part was doing this in front of my father who doesn’t exactly understand and/or get that I hear from the Lord, and to see that God is a very personal God, who was & is involved in the affairs of men.

THROUGH THE EYES OF LOVE

By Tiffany Jong Bretana

Choose this day …… which way you choose to see people

Through the eyes of the Loving Savior who gave His Life that we may live

Whom chose to see you …… while we were yet enemies of God

To see us through His Redemptive Love

WE all have been made in the image of God.

Yes, we can see how people are acting out naturally

But that’s only the scratching the surface of the matter

See past the fruit & get down to the root of a matter

Be long suffering, believing the best as the Lord was with you

Yes …. there will be those who choose to be Job’s comforters

They thought they knew why Job was going through what he went through too.

But not before God.

Choose to be as Job and pray for them.

Matthew 22:37-39 And Jesus replied to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for others.’

Luke 6:31-37 Treat others the same way you want them to treat you. If you only love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. If you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. If you lend money to those from whom you expect to receive it back, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners expecting to receive back the same amount. But love that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; for your reward will be great rich, abundant, and you will be sons of the Most High; because He Himself is kind and gracious and good to the ungrateful and the wicked. Be merciful responsive, compassionate, tender just as your heavenly Father is merciful. “Do not judge others self-righteously, and you will not be judged; do not condemn others when you are guilty and unrepentant, and you will not be condemned for your hypocrisy; pardon others when they truly repent and change, and you will be pardoned when you truly repent and change.

& REMEMBER v38 comes afterwards

Luke 6:38 Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over with no space left for more. For with the standard of measurement you use when you do good to others, it will be measured to you in return.”

Proverbs 21:1-5 The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the Lord; He turns it whichever way He wishes. Every man’s way is right in his own eyes, But the Lord weighs and examines the hearts of people and their motives. To do righteousness and justice Is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice for wrongs repeatedly committed. Haughty and arrogant eyes and a proud heart, The lamp of the wicked their self-centered pride, is sin in the eyes of God. The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance and advantage, But everyone who acts in haste comes surely to poverty.

THE FORCE OF FAITH 

By Tiffany Bretana 

RISE UP My Children, RISE UP!!!

I have not commanded you to be afraid of a storm, but a storm to be AFRAID OF YOU.  

Greater AM I who is in you, than he who is of the world.  

Enforce the LIBERTY that I have placed within you.  

You are a FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH.  

Has the storm, the winds, the waves gotten into you?

Even the winds and sea know whom they had to obey!!! 

I in you, and you in Me.  

SPEAK FORTH YOUR FAITH IN ME.  

Choose to FORGIVE, RELEASE, AND BLESS. 

Come with pure hearts before Me.  

Command the winds and the sea to obey.  

Romans 8:19-22 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. 

Mark 11:23-26 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.” 

Matthew 8:26-27 But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. So the men marveled, saying, “Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?” 

Luke 8:24-25 And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!” Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was a calm. But He said to them, “Where is your faith?” And they were afraid, and marveled, saying to one another, “Who can this be? For He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him!” 

Mark 4:39-41 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!” 

Psalm 107:28-32 Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble, And He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, So that its waves are still. Then they are glad because they are quiet; So He guides them to their desired haven. Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men! Let them exalt Him also in the assembly of the people, And praise Him in the company of the elders.
