There have been a few times in my lifetime that others have made me feel inadequate either in my Christian walk and relationship with the Lord, or what the Lord has called me to do. Their comments and actions ranged from: My walk or relationship with the Lord is deeper than yours, you’re called to office of the prophet?, God told you to stand for that?, you think you’re a healer, and the list goes on and on………. And there have been times quite honestly that there have been a few people along my path whom I was like Lord I want to have a relationship like that with you?  

We as His children must NOT allow these things to dissuade us from our relationship and walk with the Lord. A relationship is a connection, association, or involvement. 

1. connection between persons by blood or marriage. 

2. an emotional or other connection between people: the relationship between teachers and students.

It’s personal between the two that are involved. I could have gotten angry or bitter but I decided to not take the offense. The enemy of our souls would delight in us taking the bait of the offense and have us to defend, justify, and vindicate ourselves. But, instead I took it into prayer. He’s our Defender, our Justification, and our Vindicator.  The relationship you have with the Lord is what you make of it. Nothing you have to prove, the Lord will reward those things you do in secret, publicly.  

Matthew 19:14-15 But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” And He laid His hands on them and departed from there. 

Matthew 5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled. 


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


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.  



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.  


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


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.  


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.


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.

I hear the Lord say …….. you are NOT in dire straits…. for that would imply that you are without Hope.  I have said put your Hope in ME. Your stance before the Father never changes, the efficaciousness of My blood shall never lose it’s power. You overcome by My blood and the word of your testimony. My blood was spilt on the ground that no longer shall the ground bring you toil and sorrow. My hands were pierced that the works of your hands will be blessed. My feet were pierced that blessed is everywhere you place your feet. My head was pierced with the crown of thorns that your thoughts would be blessed. The enemy would have you focus on yourself, when the Father sees My blood on the mercy seat. I will keep them in perfect peace whose minds are STAYED on Me.   

Receive My Righteousness ….. 

🔹Words of Knowledge 🔹

By Tiffany Bretana

The word of knowledge is a spiritual gift given by the Holy Spirit where you will know something that relates to someone that you would NOT know by your own natural knowledge.

1 Corinthians 12:8 for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit.

I had just finished taking the office of the prophet course in April of 2016, but I only started operating in this gift about May 2016, that I know of. The first remarkable instance was when I was minding my own business, when the Holy Spirit told me to tell my friend a simple word, “breakaway”. It wasn’t a term I would use at all. So I texted her and (hit send by faith) sent it to her immediately. She was surprised because it was a phrase that was a special secret phrase only known between her and her coworker when they needed to take a break at her former job. Then the Holy Spirit further told me other things that the Lord had spoken to her heart in private that I would have not known such as airbnb and it’s only a train ride away. This was a confirmation to her.

Words of knowledge impart faith to the ones it relates to as it confirming something the Lord speaks to that person personally or it relates to something that no one else would know but God illuminated to the person by the Holy Spirit. Words of knowledge are an important tool in prophetic evangelism as let’s the unbeliever know that God knows them personally and intimately whether they acknowledge God or not.

Another instance, I was just on a phone call with another prophet I hadn’t spoken to in awhile, a couple nights ago, and through visions the Lord brought up several things that were going on in that person’s personal life without her relating to me one thing. I was given visions for each person in the family of either something that each person enjoys doing and/or a certain mannerisms unique to that individual and how the Lord was speaking through these things. And with the words of knowledge the Lord gave words of wisdom.

Words of knowledge operate out of prophetic gifting and the office of the prophet. There is no limit to what can be revealed by the Holy Spirit in the past, present, or the future. The Holy Spirit has used all three modalities that I operate in with words of knowledge: eyes to see (visions), ears to hear (hearing), and hearts to perceive (discernment). I have heard from others that words of knowledge in prophecy should only be used for unbelievers, as words of knowledge impart faith. But I side with how it is written in 1 Corinthians 12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one FOR THE PROFIT OF ALL, as we all grow from faith to faith.

Here are a few scriptural references of the operation of words of knowledge:

Reveals the secret plans of the enemy

2 Kings 6:8-13 Now the king of Syria was making war against Israel; and he consulted with his servants, saying, “My camp will be in such and such a place.” And the man of God sent to the king of Israel, saying, “Beware that you do not pass this place, for the Syrians are coming down there.” Then the king of Israel sent someone to the place of which the man of God had told him. Thus he warned him, and he was watchful there, not just once or twice. Therefore the heart of the king of Syria was greatly troubled by this thing; and he called his servants and said to them, “Will you not show me which of us is for the king of Israel?” And one of his servants said, “None, my lord, O king; but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the words that you speak in your bedroom.” So he said, “Go and see where he is, that I may send and get him.” And it was told him, saying, “Surely he is in Dothan.”

Jesus knew who Nathaniel was and knew something about him.

John 1:43-51 The following day Jesus wanted to go to Galilee, and He found Philip and said to him, “Follow Me.” Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found Him of whom Moses in the law, and also the prophets, wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” And Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him, and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!” Nathanael said to Him, “How do You know me?” Jesus answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” Nathanael answered and said to Him, “Rabbi, You are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” Jesus answered and said to him, “Because I said to you, ‘I saw you under the fig tree,’ do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” And He said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, hereafter you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.”

Jesus tells the woman at the well her past

John 4:16-19 Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come here.” The woman answered and said, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “You have well said, ‘I have no husband,’ for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly.” The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet.

1 Corinthians 12:4-11 There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

The Sweet Fragrance of the Lord 

By Tiffany Bretana

I have pour forth my oil on all that I may touch,

that they may know His fragrance.

The sweet fragrance of the Savior

Who bids us come

Come to the bedchamber of the Lord

Oh how He loves us

He shed His love abroad

Far and wide

For all He died

That we may live

In His sweet abide

2 Corinthians 2:15-17 

For we are the sweet fragrance of Christ which ascends to God, discernible both among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing; to the latter one an aroma from death to death a fatal, offensive odor, but to the other an aroma from life to life a vital fragrance, living and fresh. And who is adequate and sufficiently qualified for these things? For we are not like many, acting like merchants peddling God’s word shortchanging and adulterating God’s message; but from pure uncompromised motives, as commissioned and sent from God, we speak His message in Christ in the sight of God. 

Prophetic Declaration & Prayer Before Releasing a Prophetic Word 

By Tiffany Bretana

I sense that SOME may not know what to pray for before endeavoring to give a prophetic word to someone.  

Before releasing a prophetic word, we should ALWAYS begin with prayer.  

Here is an example of a prophetic declaration and prayer that I pray before endeavoring to get a prophetic word for someone.  

Prophetic declaration and prayer:

Heavenly Father, 

We come before you in Jesus Name. We declare & decree we know your voice and the voice of a stranger we will not follow. Lord, we ask that you would release words of edification, exhortation, and comfort that it will impart grace to the hearers. Lord, we ask that you would release words of knowledge and words of wisdom that it will impart strength, faith, and courage. We ask Lord that you would give us the discernment of spirits and the discernment of the hearts of the recipient and that you would give us the solution, as You are the Solution and the Answer. We endeavor to be apart of the solution and not apart of the problem. We seek first Your Kingdom and Your Righteousness. We declare & decree, none of us and all of you. Lord We declare & decree You will be magnified, exalted, and glorified. We declare & decree, we are blessed to be a blessing. Lord bless your people through us.  

in Jesus’ name! Amen  
We thank You & praise You Lord! You are the Spirit of Prophecy, the testimony of Christ Jesus. We thank You – Holy Spirit for speaking to us and through us.  

✨Also, I forgot to add….. We declare & decree in Jesus name that we have eyes to see, ears to hear, and a heart to perceive what You are saying to your people.✨

Declarations & Prayers for Peaceful Restful Sleep

By Tiffany Bretana

My eldest daughter was having issues this summer sleeping. So I recorded this recording of declarations and prayers for sleep. I know that others have been having issues as well so I am sharing here. 

God bless you! Have a restful peaceful blessed night’s sleep in Jesus’ Name. Amen!  

Declaration and Prayer for Peaceful Restful Sleep

We bind and break off the spirit of insomnia and any anxiety associated with loss of sleep. We loose the spirit of peace that surpasses all understanding to come upon you now, even restful peaceful sleep. The enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy and we bind and break off the works of the enemy. We declare and decree in Jesus Name he shall not steal your sleep nor the blessings the Lord gives you in your sleep. You are the redeemed of the Lord and we say so. We declare & decree in Jesus Name the blood of Jesus over you as you lay down to sleep and while you are sleeping. We declare & decree in Jesus name the blood of Jesus over your soul, mind, will, and emotions. The Lord keeps you in perfect peace as you keep your mind stayed on Him. We declare and decree in Jesus Name you will have God inspired dreams. 

We renounce, revoke, and repent of any agreement with our sleeping being diminished in Jesus’ name. 

We declare & decree in Jesus Name your sleep shall be sweet. You are the accepted in the beloved, and the Lord gives you blessings in your sleep. 

in Jesus’ name. Amen! 

We thank You & praise You God!
Lord – You are the High Priest of our profession of faith. We thank You & praise You God that ministering and warring angels are sent to bring forth these words to pass. That none of these words shall return void, that they shall accomplish what they were sent forth for. 

And We declare and decree in Jesus Name according to Esther 8:8 write as you see fit, in the king’s name, and seal it with the king’s signet ring—for a decree which is written in the king’s name and sealed with the king’s signet ring may not be revoked.” 

Psalm 127:2 It is vain for you to rise early, To retire late, To eat the bread of anxious labors— For He gives blessings to His beloved even in his sleep. 

Proverbs 3:24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid; When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.

I was on my face before the Lord last night praying …… I was praying something that I don’t remember praying before ……. not to my recollection. I was praying for the Power of God to hit households ……. and to be transformed and changed. I kept praying this over households as the Lord brought households before me. The Holy Spirit was reminding me the Power of God is onto salvation.  

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 

While in the midst of praying this over households…… I saw a vision of the United States …… I started praying the same thing over the United States …. that the Power of God would hit the United States, and to be transformed and changed.  

Then I was given a vision of a cloth dinner napkin or handkerchief that was over the United States. Then I saw the Lord’s hand pinch the middle center of the cloth handkerchief and pull it up off from the face of the United States. Then the Lord reminded of when He was in the tomb, how He had a handkerchief that was on His face.  

John 20:7 and the handkerchief that had been around His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but folded together in a place by itself. 

He also impressed on me that the pulling of the handkerchief off the face of the United States, was like taking the veil off the the United States. Where Moses had to wear a veil to cover the fading glory, and the Lord had a glory that is unfading.  

Exodus 34:33-34 And when Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a veil on his face. But whenever Moses went in before the Lord to speak with Him, he would take the veil off until he came out; and he would come out and speak to the children of Israel whatever he had been commanded. 

2 Corinthians 3:7 But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away

2 Corinthians 3:13-14 unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away. But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. 

The Lord is saying ……… 
I am unveiling the United States. I am bringing the Power of God, to transform and change households and the United States. I am coming with power and a glory that has not been seen in the United States before.  

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people He has chosen as His own inheritance. Psalm 33:12 


By Tiffany Bretana

While I was waiting at my youngest daughter’s school to pick her up, I heard the Lord say …. THE TRUTH HAS COME.  

John 16:13 But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth full and complete truth. For He will not speak on His own initiative, but He will speak whatever He hears from the Father—the message regarding the Son, and He will disclose to you what is to come in the future. 

Many of us who are Spirit led, know that the Holy Spirit leads us into all truth. The Lord even said His words are spirit and they are life.  

John 6:63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. 

The then Lord followed it with this statement ……… 

John 6:64-65 But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would betray Him. And He said, “Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father.” 


John 1:17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 

Awhile ago, someone had said to me I was a false prophet because I posted a prophetic word that stated “the camels are coming” on July 17, 2017. Then this person went on further to send me a youtube video of this woman going on a tirade whom claimed that Lana Vawser, Chuck Pierce, and Elijahlist were false prophets because during their prophetic ministry they have all used the same phrase in a word the Lord has given them. I’d say I’m in good company. I’ve learned well enough by the Lord, you don’t answer your critics/ fools. Proverbs 26:4 Do not answer a fool according to his folly, Lest you also be like him. When the Lord has vindication on His mind, He will bring it up. So then the Lord asked me to look up the phrase …… Your Light has come. It’s a quote from Isaiah 60.  

Upon reading the 60th chapter of Isaiah, reading in verse 6, it states 

Isaiah 60:6 The multitude of camels shall cover your land, The dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; All those from Sheba shall come; They shall bring gold and incense, And they shall proclaim the praises of the Lord. 

I even looked it up in the original Hebrew ……. camels still means camels. But read this whole 60th chapter. Then read the word that I had posted 7/17/2017, below.   

Isaiah 60:1-18 Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. “Lift up your eyes all around, and see: They all gather together, they come to you; Your sons shall come from afar, And your daughters shall be nursed at your side. Then you shall see and become radiant, And your heart shall swell with joy; Because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you. The multitude of camels shall cover your land, The dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; All those from Sheba shall come; They shall bring gold and incense, And they shall proclaim the praises of the Lord. All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to you, The rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you; They shall ascend with acceptance on My altar, And I will glorify the house of My glory. “Who are these who fly like a cloud, And like doves to their roosts? Surely the coastlands shall wait for Me; And the ships of Tarshish will come first, To bring your sons from afar, Their silver and their gold with them, To the name of the Lord your God, And to the Holy One of Israel, Because He has glorified you. “The sons of foreigners shall build up your walls, And their kings shall minister to you; For in My wrath I struck you, But in My favor I have had mercy on you. Therefore your gates shall be open continually; They shall not be shut day or night, That men may bring to you the wealth of the Gentiles, And their kings in procession. For the nation and kingdom which will not serve you shall perish, And those nations shall be utterly ruined. “The glory of Lebanon shall come to you, The cypress, the pine, and the box tree together, To beautify the place of My sanctuary; And I will make the place of My feet glorious. Also the sons of those who afflicted you Shall come bowing to you, And all those who despised you shall fall prostrate at the soles of your feet; And they shall call you The City of the Lord, Zion of the Holy One of Israel. “Whereas you have been forsaken and hated, So that no one went through you, I will make you an eternal excellence, A joy of many generations. You shall drink the milk of the Gentiles, And milk the breast of kings; You shall know that I, the Lord, am your Savior And your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob. “Instead of bronze I will bring gold, Instead of iron I will bring silver, Instead of wood, bronze, And instead of stones, iron. I will also make your officers peace, And your magistrates righteousness. Violence shall no longer be heard in your land, Neither wasting nor destruction within your borders; But you shall call your walls Salvation, And your gates Praise. 

THE LORD IS SAYING …. in these last days, Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, And prudent in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 

2 Chronicles 20:20b Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” 

WISE MEN WILL SEEK AFTER CHRIST IN YOU —- repost from July 17, 2017

By Tiffany Jong Bretana

While in prayer on July 13, I heard the word “trunks” then I heard “the camels are coming!” Then the Lord gave me a vision of the wise men that were following the star of Bethlehem to the birth place of Jesus, with trunks on the camels backs. 

Many are in a season of travailing and birthing, and others have birthed what has been conceived in you by the Holy Spirit, the Word made flesh. You have held the seed of His Word and Promise in you for a time and a season.  

The Lord had me to focus on the word wise men and was stating these would be those that are seeking after the Lord, Christ in you, the hope of glory. Wise men shall seek you and come bearing gifts. We have this treasure in earthen vessels, the good news about salvation. These wise men have heeded the Good News. The Lord has been made to be our Wisdom, and the wise continually seek to acquire more, just as the Queen of Sheba came to Solomon with a large caravan carrying spices, a great quantity of gold, and precious stones, to discover the extent of his wisdom. I am in no way stating that we seek after a person or a ministry, we seek after the LORD. We are the stars of heaven that point to the Lord Jesus Christ (Genesis 22:17).  

On July 16, The Lord said this word is a SURE POST, I asked the Lord like Sure Post mail? The Lord said Exactly. I had to look up Sure Post as I wasn’t quite sure what it was. Sure Post is a delivery method, where two different parcel delivery companies co-labor together to bring a parcel to it’s intended recipient. Tracking of this parcel is available, to ASSURE OF DELIVERY. We are co-laborers with God. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast (Ephesians 2:8-9).  

Some of the definitions of SURE are:  

1. free from doubt as to the reliability, character, action, etc., of something: to be sure of one’s data.

2. confident, as of something expected: sure of success.

3. convinced, fully persuaded, or positive: to be sure of a person’s guilt.

4. assured or certain beyond question: a sure victory.

5. worthy of confidence; reliable; stable: a sure messenger.

6. unfailing; never disappointing expectations: a sure cure.

7. unerring; never missing, slipping, etc.: a sure aim.

8. admitting of no doubt or question: sure proof.

9. destined; bound inevitably; certain: sure death.

10. Obsolete. secure; safe. 

11. be sure, to take care (to be or do as specified); be certain: Be sure to close the windows.

Some definitions of POST are:  

1. to affix (a notice, bulletin, etc.) to a post, wall, or the like. 

2. to bring to public notice by or as by a poster or bill: to post a reward. 

3. to placard (a wall, fence, etc.) with notices, bulletins, etc.: The wall was posted with announcements. 

4. to put up signs on (land or other property) forbidding trespassing: The estate has been posted by the owner. 

5. Computers. 

    * to send (a message) to a newsgroup. 

    * to place (text) on a website.


— noun 

1. a position of duty, employment, or trust to which one is assigned or appointed: a diplomatic post. 


— noun 

1. Chiefly British . 

    * a single dispatch or delivery of mail. 

    * the mail itself. 

    * the letters and packages being delivered to a single recipient. 

    * an established mail system or service, especially under government authority. 

Then the Lord showed me this was collaboration of a few posts, He had me write. I love when He connects dots and revelations, and then ties them together. ✨😊✨

TREASURE IN EARTHEN VESSELS – Rising Remnant March 18, 2017


My Prophets ARISE!!! – Rising Remnant December 13, 2016 

My Prophets ARISE!!!

1 Corinthians 1:18-31 For the message of the cross is foolishness absurd and illogical to those who are perishing and spiritually dead because they reject it, but to us who are being saved by God’s grace it is the manifestation of the power of God. For it is written and forever remains written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise the philosophy of the philosophers, And the cleverness of the clever who do not know Me I will nullify.” Where is the wise man philosopher? Where is the scribe scholar? Where is the debater logician, orator of this age? Has God not exposed the foolishness of this world’s wisdom? For since the world through all its earthly wisdom failed to recognize God, God in His wisdom was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached regarding salvation to save those who believe in Christ and welcome Him as Savior. For Jews demand signs attesting miracles, and Greeks pursue worldly wisdom and philosophy, but we preach Christ crucified, a message which is to Jews a stumbling block that provokes their opposition, and to Gentiles foolishness just utter nonsense, but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks Gentiles, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. This is because the foolishness of God is not foolishness at all and is wiser than men far beyond human comprehension, and the weakness of God is stronger than men far beyond the limits of human effort. Just look at your own calling, believers; not many of you were considered wise according to human standards, not many powerful or influential, not many of high and noble birth. But God has selected for His purpose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise revealing their ignorance, and God has selected for His purpose the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong revealing their frailty. God has selected for His purpose the insignificant base things of the world, and the things that are despised and treated with contempt, even the things that are nothing, so that He might reduce to nothing the things that are, so that no one may be able to boast in the presence of God. But it is from Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God revealing His plan of salvation, and righteousness making us acceptable to God, and sanctification making us holy and setting us apart for God, and redemption providing our ransom from the penalty for sin, so then, as it is written in Scripture, “He who boasts and glories, let him boast and glory in the Lord.” 

2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this precious treasure the good news about salvation in unworthy earthen vessels of human frailty, so that the grandeur and surpassing greatness of the power will be shown to be from God His sufficiency and not from ourselves. 

Proverbs 1:5-7 The wise will hear and increase their learning, And the person of understanding will acquire wise counsel and the skill to steer his course wisely and lead others to the truth, To understand a proverb and a figure of speech or an enigma with its interpretation, And the words of the wise and their riddles that require reflection.
