IN DEBT to the Believer and the Unbeliever
"Both to Greeks and to barbarians
(to the cultured and the uncultured), both to the wise and to the foolish,
I have an obligation to discharge and a duty to perform and a debt to pay."

Feasting at the Table of Blessing

 "One thing I have desired, that will I seek,
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days
of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord,
and to inquire in His temple."
Psalm 27:4

As I spend time in God's presence and dwell in His house, these are some of the exciting truths I have discovered and have been scooping up onto my plate to feast upon at the banqueting table in the celebration hall of the Father's house. Our God has prepared a table before us in the presence of our enemies and invites us to come and dine, feast, and celebrate with Him. (Ps 23:5) There is SO MUCH revelation at this table as we feast upon His blessings.

#1  In my house I have discovered there is NO LACK, because I am a child of God living and dwelling in HIS HOUSE. Wealth and riches are in my house, because I am now living in HIS house. He has called me, and I have come through the blood of Jesus, washed from my sins and restored into right relationship with my Father, and learning to be a good manager and steward of His blessings and resources. His house is the place (the home of the Spirit) that I live in and draw upon His anointing and bring His presence and riches into my home. I live and dwell there now, and all that is His is mine to partake of, and everything that I have, I have given to Him. When I give it to Him He places His hand of blessing upon it so that it will now glorify Him. The Father wants everything in my life to glorify Him, and as I discover new places and things in my life to hand over to Him, He blesses them and releases His anointing upon them to restore and turn them around for His glory. Our Father is such a good and faithful God and a God of restoration. He knows just how to fix and restore and work all things together for our good when we turn our heart fully towards Him. Things that we can't fix and that we have messed up, He takes and does miraculous things to through His power and grace. I am amazed.....every time.
(Jer 30:17; Joel 2:25-26; Ps 51:12; Acts 3:19-21)

#2  Another truth that I have been feasting on is that we ARE HEALED......already! We just have to receive it and go get it with our faith.  Jesus paid the price for our healing with His blood. He took our sickness and disease to the cross and purchased our healing 2000 years ago.  (Is 53:5, 1 Pet 2:24) The Father was trying to give me a simple analogy of this as I feasted on this truth. He said, "It's kinda like this. What if you went online and purchased something for someone, maybe like a garment, and it was delivered to that particular store that you ordered it from. Now, know it has been purchased for them already, and it's now theirs, but they've got to pick it up. They have to claim it and receive it. It's already paid for, already registered in their name and is officially theirs, but they have got to make the effort to go get it, to take possession of it." And then He said, "But understand that sometimes they are too weak to go get it themselves, so you may have to go receive and pick it up for them and deliver it to them, maybe even help them put it on and see how good it looks on them. Sometimes people just need someone that cares enough to make the sacrifice and effort to go get what's been purchased for them already and help them receive it fully." He was trying to show me our place as a friend (intercessor) and "delivery boy" for their gift that's been purchased for them and officially belongs to them, and how to take what was theirs and just deliver and release it to them.

O this food is SO GOOD! Feasting on God's truths at His table of blessings is amazing! Things that our circumstances and that we have let others (non-believers or misled believers) tell us have built up mindsets and strongholds in our mind, but our Father God wants to tear those old mindsets and strongholds down with the truths of His kingdom that belongs to us as His children. He wants us to know, believe, and live in these truths as we walk out each day and face these circumstances and situations everyday. Our daily feasting at His table with His Word strengthens us, empowers us, and renews our mind to have the true mind of Christ and walk in the power and victory that is ours through our lives hidden in Christ.
So I invite you today to come and feast at the table of blessing and abundance that He has prepared before you, and take your position at His side. He says you will rule and reign with Him as you partake of this table that He has prepared before you even in the presence of your enemies, even in the stormy situation that you are walking through. Come and Feast!!

"You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies."
Ps 23:5

Ps 112:3; John 17:10; 2 Cor 10:5; 1 Cor 2:16; Col 3:3; Col 3:4-6

God's House Has Many Rooms

"There I will meet with you; and from above
the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim
which are upon the ark of the testimony, I will
speak to you about all that I will give you in commandment
for the sons of Israel."
Exodus 25:22

I believe the Lord wants me to share with you an experience I had recently with Him in prayer.

The other morning as I awoke I was immediately in the Spirit in the banqueting hall of the Father's house at the celebration feast that He had prepared and invited everyone to. There were many, many people there and there was a joy and excitement in the air as everyone enjoyed the feast at His table and the fellowship of others that were there. As I mingled amongst the crowd I had a personal need of a person on my heart and in my mind. I walked up to the Father as He sat upon the throne, and I shared this need with Him. He motioned to me to follow Him, and as He got up He led me into a back room. It was the room where the Mercy Seat was. There in that place by the Mercy Seat He asked me to share my heart and need with Him again, and I did......then He shared His. It was all about His desire for this person's heart and the hearts of the people in the earth. He showed me that though He didn't cause these situations, He was using the things and situations that confront them to draw them to Himself and to their need and dependance upon Him. I reminded Him of His Word that it was His goodness that leads men to repentance, and asked Him for His mercy and goodness to be released that they may know His love for them. Then I saw Him smile and nod His head in agreement......then I said, "Thank You, Father," and we turned and walked back into the banqueting hall together.

I praise God for this experience and that He is a merciful God, that He has mercy for us as grafted in sons and daughters of Israel, and that He will personally share His heart with us as we meet Him at the Mercy Seat. I praise God that through this experience He is showing us His heart of celebration in His house but also the intimate and personal place of His heart in the place of the Mercy Seat. I praise God that in His house there are many dwelling places and He has gone and prepared a place for us there. He has prepared a place of feasting and celebration where He has prepared a table before us in the presence of our enemies, and He has prepared an place of an intimate room of His mercy where He shares His heart and where we can share ours. I praise God that He is in touch with our needs and with this world's situation, and He is drawing us up into His house and heart and into His presence to BE with Him and feast upon His goodness and grace and mercy. Our Father HAS prepared a table before us in the presence of our enemies and He is drawing us up higher out of the realm of the natural where our soul, mind, will and emotions are, and into the realm of the Spirit where we feast upon the goodness of what is ours as children of God. He has MUCH to give us and He will pour out this mercy as we petition and partner with Him for it for others. Thank You, Father! Thank You for Your mercy on the people and on my life. Thank You for Your mercy on the sons and daughters of God and for Your mercy on those that don't yet know that they ARE the sons and daughters of the Most High God. Thank You, Father, for drawing us into the intimate and personal place of the Mercy Seat to connect at the heart and come into agreement for Your will to be done here in the earth. Thank You, Father, for the partnership of Your love and for Your kingdom power being released upon the earth. Fill us with Your grace, Your goodness and Your mercy that we may glorify You and reveal Jesus in the earth. Thank You Father. You are such an incredible FATHER and we love you SO MUCH! Amen

It's Time to Celebrate!

I keep hearing and feeling this in my spirit, "It's time to celebrate! It's time to celebrate! Come up higher! Come into the Father's house and celebrate!" I SO feel the heart of the Father calling and drawing His children into His house to come and celebrate with Him. The preparations have been made. Everything is ready. He has prepared a table before us in the presence of our enemies. In His house are many dwelling places, and one of these dwelling places is a huge banqueting hall with a long table full of spiritual food, full of gifts, full of blessings that He has set and prepared for us to come and feast upon and celebrate with Him. I SO feel His heart and His desire to celebrate with us, to celebrate with His children in this hour of desperation upon the earth, for He has MUCH to give us and MUCH to bestow upon us, for the whole earth is groaning for the manifestations of the sons and daughters of God. The Father is wanting to give us gifts and anointings that will manifest His goodness and glory. He is wanting to clothe us in His righteousness and royalty. He is wanting to deliver to us the authority and anointing of our inheritance in Him. O, how I feel His joy and excitement and anticipation of our attendance. He has waited for this hour. He has made great preparations and prepared great things for this hour of His celebration. He is calling us. He is drawing us. He will not be denied this celebration. If we do not respond He will send out for others to take our place to receive His blessing. O what a sorrow that would be for us to miss the Father's blessing. His desire is to release His joy and life and kingdom blessings upon us.
Come people! Come to the house of God! Receive and respond to His invitation! Come and feast at the table of blessing that He has set before us in the very presence of our enemies. Come and let God make a public display of His victory over our enemies. Let Him show forth His glory in and through us in this hour. COME! Say "YES", and COME!!

 "Blessed are those who are invited
to the marriage supper of the Lamb."
Rev 19:9

O Father, we thank You, we worship You, we glorify Your holy name. We thank You for this invitation. We say "YES" and we come and celebrate with You! We enter Your gates with thanksgiving and Your courts with praise. We come and we take our place at Your banqueting table. We take our position at Your side. We receive from You ALL that You have for us. We thank You, Father, for Your bountiful blessings. We thank You for bestowing upon us Your mercy and Your grace and Your abundant blessings and inheritance upon our lives. We thank You for drawing us, for keeping us, for increasing and multiplying us. We thank You for lavishing upon us Your Spirit, for clothing us in righteousness and in royalty. We thank You for anointing us and laying upon us Your authority that comes from Your name, the name of Jesus, the name by which every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that You are Lord. O Father we thank You, we thank You, we thank You. We love You, we love You, we love You. We say YES to You, and we COME to You! Hallelujah!
