Walking looking at you

In this season I am getting the point of a verse that I say to many when they decide to walk with Jesus. This is the verse Holy Spirit moves me to use to bring them to the truth and cancel the lies of this world when they have been following other beliefs or idols. Jesus (using me) has been able to set people free from demonic possession with this verse and a hug.

I still remember that day and that a woman thirsty for whatever I had with me. She came to me and said: “I need what you have.” She hugged me so strongly that I could feel her squeezing my ribs. She even smelled me on my neck in a weird “vampire like” kind of way. That is when I knew I had to set her free from whatever was in her. Demons know Christ scent. Oh, and yes you guessed it, demons’ reek and this woman had their smell on her. I knew what was hugging me the moment I saw her eyes. The most amazing thing happened: Perfect love casted out all fear from me. (1 John 4:18) So I was able to tell the lady: “Jesus is the only one true way to God and that she was free in Jesus name.” I hugged her back and told her also: “Jesus loves you exactly where you are, be free and know that Jesus is God.” She was set free at that moment and started dancing and praising Jesus in a religious area where you were supposed to be very quiet. The courage that I felt at that moment came from the love I had of Jesus and my husband having my back.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.(John 14:6)

Jesus is the son of God sent to redeem us and set us free from a life of condemnation.

How do we keep our freedom in Him daily?

Jesus as The Way… When we see Jesus as the way. What do you do when you walk? You see where you step. As you walk with Jesus, you keep your mind and your heart set on Jesus at all times. Everything you walk out to do you dedicate it to Jesus and you will see how much easier it becomes. You will see how much promptings he will give you to bless others along the way.

Jesus as The Truth… When we see Jesus as the truth. Jesus himself explains how the Word (Holy Bible) is truth. At some point Jesus points out to the Father in heaven that may He sanctify us by the Word (Holy Bible). So, when we spend time in the Holy Bible we are being washed and sanctified by the truth that is setting us free from the lies of this world. This is the reason in the word we are constantly guided to delight in the Word (the law) of the Lord day and night. Jesus told us that the truth in His Word will set us free. (John 8: 32) I believe what the Word of God can do because I have been set free myself from depression, panic attacks, witchcraft, seeing demons my whole life (until I met Jesus), and so much more.

Jesus as The Life… When we see Jesus as the life. Jesus is eternal life. When we go to (John 17: 3) it explains that to know Abba and Jesus Christ closely is eternal life. We understand that as soon as we are in His presence all we want is Him and that is why we get to a point where death loses its sting. When you love Jesus above all else, death loses its power to make you fearful of it. To know in His presence how loved you are by your Father in heaven makes you understand that on earth or in heaven as long as you get his love you are set.

All about my Father’s business

Jesus at 12 years old new His purpose…

“And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?”

Luke 2:49 KJV

We are all called to the same purpose yet with different gifts and talents to save others on this fallen earth.

Lets refocus on what the Lord has called us to…

We are called to walk like Jesus…

We are called to care for the needy, the orphan, and the widow…

This is our Father’s business.

Our hearts should be concentrating on Jesus’ perfect love for us to be able to overflow for others that same love.

Our lives should show that we walk His mercy and His grace for others to see and know that God is a constant rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Jesus intentionally calls us to put His Kingdom first and that everything we would ever need He will cover it! (Matthew 6:33) This is why Jesus put the needs of others above His own. In our “selfie nation” I know this is a challenge. Yet it is what Jesus calling was…

“Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” (Philippians‬ ‭2:4-5‬ ‭KJV‬‬)

When Jesus started His ministry He said the most important message of all… “Repent for The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 3:2) Original written word in the Bible “repent” meant to change your mind.

Renew your mind later the Apostle Paul explains we should keep our eyes, ears, and mouths on things above and not bellow. (Kingdom thoughts that Philippians 4 explains: “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8 KJV) All this according to the fleshly desires of this world is a bit difficult to keep up with. I know I worked on what would came out of my mouth for 3 years and I am still a work in progress. To die to the ways of this world can only be completely relying on our Father in Heaven in relationship guiding our every step. I no longer curse yet I am not perfect and if I do I repent and turn my mind and actions towards my Father’s ways.

Jesus was walking the Kingdom of heaven here on earth. (John 3:13 KJV) He explains this to Nicodemus and even lets him know that he would not understand heavenly things. All this is accessible through the confession of our sins and being born again by baptism of water and Holy Spirit. When we decide to love God with all of our heart, all of our mind, all of our strength, and all of our soul. He reveals everything we need to know about His ways. When we decide not to question His goodness. When we decide to repent immediately if we think against His ways. This is when we can have a deeper maturing relationship with our Father in heaven. This is when we can see that His kingdom can come close. Ask for it as Jesus did constantly in prayer, Our Father’s prayer has a purpose, it paves the way… Jesus paved the way of how to access the kingdom to be a yielded servant. “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10 KJV

Through our inheritance “Holy Spirit” we have been given a kingdom to walk out on this earth as servants of the most High God. You can read about it in Daniel…

“And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.” Daniel 7:27 KJV

Please pray with me today…

🙏May you walk your purpose now dedicating everything you do to the King of Kings / Lord of Lords to live everlasting life from this side of eternity as a servant of the most High God. In this everlasting life we abide in His Secret Place where we are safe and protected from all the plagues of this world like the Israelites in Goshen, and also like the Israelites in the desert for 40 years.

May you be blessed and be encouraged! 🙌

Worthy is the blood of the lamb

Good Friday should be a day of remembering what our God did for us in Egypt with the blood of a lamb on door posts. How death passed-over all the Israelites homes only killing the first borns of the Egyptians. Just an example of what was to come through the blood of Jesus.

The blood of the lamb was the start of freedom from slavery in Egypt for the Israelites. So many centuries ago and we are still debating about it. We are honored to know that the God of miracles, signs, and wonders has always wanted to let us know, how much He loves His people. God was willing to kill innocent children to let His people GO. A God of justice and righteousness was willing to shed blood for every soul that He would call His people.

To this day I can see this God that seeks my attention and affection every hour of every day. My soul feels the tug to seek Him and praise Him as well. The love that He gives me to remain in overflow can only come from that secret place that I seek with all my heart. My heart is expectant always!

What about yours?

Matthew 7:7 Seek and you will find…

The real war is in your mind

You can put faith in God, or you can put faith in the “dark side.” You decide daily who you walk for. When we pray it’s important to think ahead of time what we are praying for. Make sure what you are asking for is from a love perspective. Why? We are all God’s creation and He loves us all and He is always loving and seeking His lost sheep. This may be a shocker to some but this is truth. When God was crucified on the cross He was also crucified for the pedophile, the prostitute, and the criminal. At the moment of the crucifixion, the criminal next to Him noticed the injustice of what Jesus went through without deserving it, He was moved to defend Him. Jesus moved the heart of a criminal on the cross, by believing in Him and because His heart had mercy for our savior, Jesus told Him that they would be together in paradise when all their process was over. Jesus is just waiting for us to believe in Him. Jesus is waiting for us to understand His goodness, His love, His sacrifice, and His plan for our present and our future. It’s important to understand the sin crucified in His flesh.

warrior woman“A thief has only one thing in mind—he wants to steal, slaughter, and destroy. But I have come to give you everything in abundance,more than you expectlife in its fullness until you overflow!” (John 10:10 TPT)

Thank you, Jesus for the truth of your word. God you are teaching us the truth that we need to understand to live in freedom. The truth is to live for others (overflow) and not for ourselves. We have to live in the fullness of God, understanding who God is and what He came here to do. “And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.” John 1:16

I pray this prayer in Ephesians 3: 14-19 expressed by the apostle Paul over our lives now… “For this reason, I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name.I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

251231_448611605191559_1990647183_nTo realize the truth of your potential is freedom from the lies of this world. The devil wants you to believe He has power over the God of the universe influencing your life, that is His calling. His deception goes way beyond what we could imagine. “…He is a master of deception and the father of lies!” (John 8:44 TPT) The devil is under the dominion of God. Whatever happens good or bad God permits. To live a long life and have salvation (not saying free of difficulty) we have to say every day to God that we trust Him, this takes you to His secret place (peace that surpasses all understanding awaits you there) and he will take away your fear, anxiety, depression, insecurity, and all illnesses. All these promises are in Psalm 91. Again to receive the promises of God we have to meditate on His words in the Holy Bible, written by men that love and believe in the Lord.

Satan wanted the power of God from the beginning. Satan planted a thought in Eve’s mind that gave fruit to disobedience. Careful who you listen to. Remember good or evil travels by the power of thoughts and words. Satan was expelled from heaven, so He did not want man to live on earth having a fruitful relationship with God. Satan lost his privileges in heaven and did not want anyone to have anything he could not have. God sent the devil to earth and created us to torment the devil by creating billions of people in His own image. If you submit to God, the devil runs.  “So then, surrender to God. Stand up to the devil and resist him and he will turn and run away from you.” (James 4: 7 TPT) The key is to live a life surrendered to God. We choose if we want to be living for our own wants or we choose to live a life of service to God by putting others as a priority. Daily we choose if we live for ourselves or we live to bless other people along the way. May God help you make the right choice daily. Prayer is key to knowing God. Prayer is to talk to God. Start today. 

41kfehg4kilThere is a spiritual battle that we are part of whether we wish to be part of it or not. The battle comes from the power over your mind, thoughts, and your words. The devil wants to ruin God’s creation since Eden. His calling is to ruin your life. We will not experience unhealthy fear when we submit to God. God wants us to have an intimate relationship with Him throughout our day. How can we do this? We have to build the WILL to want to read His word, speak to Him (prayer), and praise Him. God wants to be part of our daily tasks. Speak or sing to God while you cook, clean, drive, study, work, etc. These “simple acts” of obedience bring you to his secret place. The promise in Psalm 91:4 says: “He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.”

Please pray with me now,

Father, Abba, thank you for your love. We thank you for your truth that sets us free. Lord please reveal more truth to our hearts and remove all the things that have damaged them in any way. Lord thank you for changing our lives to live by your word and your guidance. Lord I thank you that only by asking for wisdom you give it to us. Thank you, Lord, for the truth of your salvation. Thank you for renewing our strength and our understanding that your ways are way better than our ways even when they seem like deep water and storms. Lord we trust you in the midst of these trouble waters knowing you set us in the course you know is truth for us.

May God bless you and lead you to a new paradigm of radical faith in Jesus17-best-grace-quotes-on-pinterest-godly-quotes-beautiful-girl-674217

God loves you and so do I.

 

Wisdom

Wisdom and understanding comes through meditating on Jesus (The Word of God). Always ask Holy Spirit to reveal truth, this are things you already know by heart but sometimes we need to review.

Revelation will come to you in your intimacy with the Lord. In your meditation He will offer what you need to contemplate on. With time His word is written in our hearts. God lets us access it. In intimacy with Jesus, who seeks a real relationship not a ritual. Jesus asks for transformation. Transformation means a process that can bruise and hurt… The end result makes it worthwhile, a promise becomes yours. Imagine believing that the blind can see. You will not doubt once if I should pray or not for a blind individual.

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭15:13‬ ‭CSB‬‬

“My mouth speaks wisdom; my heart’s meditation brings understanding.”

Psalms 49:3 CSB

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; in all your ways know him, and he will make your paths straight. Don’t be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and turn away from evil. This will be healing for your body and strengthening for your bones.”

Proverbs 3:5-8 CSB

“I have filled him with God’s Spirit, with wisdom, understanding, and ability in every craft to design artistic works in gold, silver, and bronze, to cut gemstones for mounting, and to carve wood for work in every craft. I have also selected Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, to be with him. I have put wisdom in the heart of every skilled artisan in order to make all that I have commanded you: the tent of meeting, the ark of the testimony, the mercy seat that is on top of it, and all the other furnishings of the tent — the table with its utensils, the pure gold lampstand with all its utensils, the altar of incense, the altar of burnt offering with all its utensils, the basin with its stand — the specially woven garments, both the holy garments for the priest Aaron and the garments for his sons to serve as priests, the anointing oil, and the fragrant incense for the sanctuary. They must make them according to all that I have commanded you.””

Exodus 31:3-11 CSB

Seek wisdom, walking in Jesus love for others with all your heart. Everything else will be covered by our Father in heaven. I have lived it. My family is living proof that He is the God of the impossible. 🥰 Believe and you shall receive. 🦋

Please pray with me today…

God I ask for forgiveness of all of my sins, the ones I know and the ones I may not know about, we thank you for everything you do to change the nature in us that does not represent your kingdom purpose. Thank you for always correcting us with your love and understanding. Build us up to your understanding, your ways, your thoughts, in Jesus name . Amen.

Jesus loves you and so do I.

Good good father

Thankful to see how God just transforms lives. Jesus works in ways that no one can understand. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Jesus deservers all praise. 🙌

Jesus has resurrection power. We have been given the same gift at the cross. Jesus’ blood redeemed us and as he was risen we were given the promised Holy Spirit. So the Spirit of (power, love, and sound mind) that raised Jesus from the dead lives in me and lives in you. We are to me capable of living Holy Lives. This is all said by a sinner.

I used to be an atheist. God meets you were you are. His blood washes us clean daily and transforms us daily. If we choose to go through this challenging process. Basically daily deciding to live to bless others and not your own life.

I am blessed to understand to let go and let God do what He wants, when he wants. Its not about egos or pride. This is all truth. The truth that His Spirit of Revelation and His Spirit of Wisdom can give to anyone that decides to honestly seek him. “Seek the Lord and his virtue. Seek his face always.” 1 Chronicles 16:11

The word used for love/relationship in hebrew bible basically explains deep relationship. The type of deep relationship that you seek in your partner for life. God is waiting for people that want to know WHO HE REALLY IS.

The God I know…

God is a good good FATHER.

Love

Understanding

Giving

A father that loves us also instructs…

Teacher

Truth

Justice

Righteousness

We should feel bless to know and say daily that we are a child of God. Lets live to serve Jesus, who saves our life from a pit. Jesus (son of God) gave HIS life for us. He did it so we could be seated in heavenly places. To live on earth as it is in Heaven. Open heavens are all around us. We have to be willing to seek. Decide to seek Him and you shall find Him. My hunger for Him is never ending and that is how God allows us to see daily testimonies in our lives and the lives of others around us.

See this awesome video…

I found my life in this moment… my baptism.

https://youtu.be/AxH8Q8ue65o

Please, pray with me today…

God give me a hunger that never ends for your truth. Allow me to open my bible daily without missing one day. Please wash me clean and make me more and more like Jesus. Amen.

God loves you and so do I.

Living daily testimonies

ER with my mom. She is in good spirits and going through a process. Her heart is acting up. She had never suffered from her heart before.

I dread being in a hospital because it means someone I love has to go through some type of process. On the other hand I love hospitals because I have experienced the most powerful God encounters and miracles.

Hospitals after my miracles and discovering faith are like treasure hunts for me. I am blessed to know that God uses us even when we can’t believe he will. That is the most beautiful thing about faith, it can be the size of a grain of a mustard seed and God can still wow someone when we remain obedient to serve.

A few years ago I went to this same hospital and felt really cold and it is extremely unusual for me to get cold so I decided to step outside for a little while. As soon as I walked out-side a lady was all curved up in a wheelchair, head down, I knew she was in a lot of pain. God warmed my heart towards her need for prayer. So in obedience I went to offer my prayer. Her husband got up quick and said, I already prayed. So in obedience I looked into her eyes and told her that I needed to be obedient toward God. So she said ok and I asked what happened. She explained that when she got home from church that night the garage door dropped on her and crushed her ribs. I asked were it hurt and she showed me. I said that I would pray now. Holy Spirit took over and made a very powerful loving prayer and all her bones set back to place in my hands, I felt it!!! I got to see all her results because she got up from her wheelchair and walk, she was also placed next to my mother and was told she was ok and that she could go home. To drink only Tylenol for the pain.

I have learned not to limit God, our God of miracles. For me its really hard to socialize but I still try to do it and bless others in the middle of my own insecurity. When I go against my nature that us when God can do what He wants. Like paul says: “in my weakness, He is made strong.”

❤️🔥Today I got to see these beautiful miracles. I am honored to testify!

A woman called Cathy got healed from skin rash and swollen arms and legs.

Another woman God decided to instantly heal her grief. Her sister dolores got the same love from Abba. Her whole family got to know Jesus’ love. They were united in the love for their mother. No grief was present, it was more love and rejoicing of being together for their mother as a family. 🔥❤️

God is so amazing. God is so faithful. Testifying is so necessary for our spiritual growth.

Walking silent waiting…

“Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, he answered them, “The kingdom of God is not coming with something observable; no one will say, ‘See here! ’ or ‘There! ’ For you see, the kingdom of God is in your midst.” Luke‬ ‭17:20-21‬ ‭

God loves our ability to remain still and quiet. It still takes a lot of practice. I can assure you that just concentrating in God and His will for us is such a challenge. I am the type of person that can’t stop talking or thinking. I am still learning, I guess that is what makes me so great at testifying and speaking about His miracles.

Nature, our Creator’s creativity just brings peace to my heart. ❤️ “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you.” Matthew‬ ‭6:33‬ ‭

I am thankful because God takes one day at a time to teach us and challenge us. Choosing to seek Him first every single day is so worth it. The most incredible thing is that only through the love for others or the loved received from others is the strongest way I have Him closer to my heart these days. He knows exactly what I run away from and makes it more important for me.

God has seasons to teach you to remain quiet. God can choose another season to teach you to rest. God can also choose to teach us to remain in community. Oh wow! All I can say that for me, community is a challenge. I have made it my priority to remain alone and exclusive. Don’t know why! Maybe I can think a few reasons, but these are not worth mentioning.

So in this season I am learning how to stay in community. What a challenge! God keeps positioning me where I really do not want to be. I always knew the need for community to grow spiritually, I just did not know how much of a priority it was. So if I want to keep seeking the kingdom of God as a priority I will have to keep challenging myself to remain in community.

Please pray with me today…

Thank You Jesus for new beginnings.

Thank You Jesus for the obedience to remain connected to the vine.

Thank You Jesus for new open eyes and ears.

Thank You Jesus for speaking truth to my heart.

Praise the Lord… 🎵How great is our God.🎵

God loves you and so do I.

See His Love in everything

Now I can see what some beautiful faithful servants say. When we live testifying about His greatness, we keep seeing God’s love in everything. I am now seeing His love and faithfulness almost daily. I used to only see when I was searching for it.

Now I am understanding how much stillness God requires of us to remain in His perfect will and perfect peace. Daily we have to choose. Its a battle of the mind to decide to live in love.

I know God’s promises are the same today and forever. Trust even when its a complicated day. If you have a thought about someone, text them words of encouragement. God is everywhere all day everyday just acknowledge Him.

I am asking Him for Spiritual Giants in my life and I am definitely seeing how beautifully He sets us up. Ask and you shall receive. I am seeing all this beautiful provision. We only need to be Still and know that He is God. 🌈

Pray with me today…

Jesus come into my heart and make me be more like you today and always.

In Jesus name. Amen.

God loved you and so do I.

Prayer walking with family

🦋🦅The Glory of God in nature.🦉🦋

To ask the Lord each day to open my spiritual eyes and ears, WOW TO BE ABLE TO SEE how the Kingdom of heaven gets so close… To be able to teach my husband and my beautiful miracle babies* to see what I see. This is what having Fun in faith is all about.

Let me set the scene. This was a beautiful afternoon walking in the park with my husband and my kids. My kids having fun using their bikes and scooters. I started Praising the Lord and praying all throughout our walk around the neighborhood and the park. When I got close to a corner in the park, it was sunset, God gave us this amazing show of nature. Three little birds singing and dancing right on top of our heads and in front of me. Such a beautiful scene. My girls were so exited to see such a beautiful subliminal moment in God. I tried to take a picture or video and the camera would not work. I have learned to enjoy what I am living and not try too hard to capture it with a camera, takes away the beautiful feeling of peace and love it brings. We did enjoyed the moment as a family.

My husband being the funny guy he is started to sing the Bob Marley’s song Three Little Birds. Oh and it was sooo for that moment. We laugh and enjoyed a family outing but we felt so secure under our Father’s wings. Rest is here by living in relationship 24/7. I just decided to put God first in everything I do.

Why 3 birds and not 1 or 2? God’s perfect number 3 is the number of perfection, or completion. I know in my heart and so does my husband and my girls, how the glory of God was in three little birds in the park walking with us. Such a peace and love that He and only Him can give us. When you keep walking in faith and work in your intimacy with God you can see Him in everything you do.

Imagine to walk the world knowing how secure you are under your Heavenly Father’s wings.

Read this scripture yesterday and I found this revealing passage about living in the light (living in Jesus.)

“Then after that, he said to the disciples, “Let’s go to Judea again.” “Rabbi,” the disciples told him, “just now the Jews tried to stone you, and you’re going there again?” “Aren’t there twelve hours in a day?” Jesus answered. “If anyone walks during the day, he doesn’t stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if anyone walks during the night, he does stumble, because the light is not in him.””

‭‭John‬ ‭11:7-10‬ ‭CSB‬‬

This revealing passage about living in the light (living in Jesus) lets us know how secure we are loving Him above all else. Its a process to learn to love God but if you ask Him and humble before Him so He can teach you. Oh, He will!

Growing up around witchcraft and santeria I had this notion that darkness had more power in this world. Well to my knowledge and my peace God use a beautiful family full of love and the call of God to teach me how they could never experience darkness because they had always chosen to love God above all else. These incredible Christians received people and stray cats in their household to love and minister to their souls. Their LOVE was the testimony that help reveal to me this passage that lets us know that the darkness has no change against you when you are in love, head over heals, for our Father in Heaven.

“In him was life, and that life was the light of men. That light shines in the darkness, and yet the darkness did not overcome it.”

‭‭John‬ ‭1:4-5‬ ‭CSB‬‬

I keep seeking and keep being hungry to understand how the light is everything for every Christian. To reach this beautiful place where you know how secure you are under your Father’s wings is so liberating. I feel I can go to the middle east into battle and never be touched by a bomb or a bullet. Our Father’s calling on our lives is way bigger than anything violent festering around you.

OMG I just remember something else that happened regarding living secure and keeping your loved ones secure. Yesterday we went out to eat as a family. We had never been to this place. When we were going in we saw a lot of cops outside, they looked to be working and not there to eat. We tried to order some food but the lady did not look like she wanted to work or help us. My husband already was not feeling this place and I got sick to my stomach and knew we had to leave this place at once. So we cancelled the order and left. As soon as we were out of this area I felt better again. God has his ways of letting us know when we do not fit in or when we should leave a place. I am bless to have learned this throughout the years of learning to walk by faith and not by sight.

Please pray with me today…

God thank you for opening our spiritual eyes and ears to the reality of your Kingdom. May your Kingdom come and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Thank you for teaching us how to maintain the Love for you. Thank you for teaching us to always ask for forgiveness of our sins daily. Thank you for using us as your yielded vessels to represent your Kingdom here on earth as it is in Heaven.

In Jesus name. Amen.

God loves you and so do I.
