Blessing of the December Window of Reconciliation #8: Destiny Aspect, Right Light

Beloved, I would like to invite your spirit forward to treat with me in the name of Yeshua.

Spirit, listen to the word of G-d for you for today.

And G-d said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

Genesis 1:3 ESV

Spirit, one of the first things that the L-rd created was light, preceded only by time, matter, the laws of science, and sound. Light is necessary to see, and not just to see partially, but to see in fullness. In order for us to possess birthrights, we must be able to see rightly, see really, and see fully.

G-d is the light, and we are the light, whether or not we acknowledge it. Spirit, you may have felt like a failure or a faulty, reprobate sinner, but sinner you most certainly are not. Father does not look at us with such a lens as to only see junk and garbage. Rather, he sees the glorious light of His that He desposited into human vessels and He sighs a sigh of relief and says, “Yeah!”.

It is good, and you, the whole person, are good. As I write this blessing in Block format, I remind you, spirit, incessantly that you are a chip off the Old Block, not the block that is the Father of Lies, but the Block that is the Father of Lights.

The Sons of G-d are Heavenly Hosts, and they are made of light, and spirit, you are made of light.

Bioluminescent, spirit. You were made to be life-giving light.

And in a zillion facets, hues, tones, expressions, and manners, you, spirit, and your compatriots, fellow sons of the L-rd of the Lights, were each made to contribute several threads of the fiberoptic tapestry that is the Kingdom of Love.

You, spirit, and your compatriots are the fiber optic equivalent of the Bayeaux Tapestry. You are fullness of workmanship and a full expression of His love, even when you think you are most broken.

So, I bless you, spirit, to SHINE HIS LIGHT, not merely through effort of your own, but through cause and effect, and through allowing Him a place to shine through you and in you. I bless you with the stubborn persistence to shine and be who you are even when you are broken. A light shines because it is light. It does not have to work to shine or make light. It is light.

Spirit, you are also light, and you are a light in the world. You don’t have to manufacture something that you think is fake. If you will be who you are, then shining will be the most natural thing for you. Just as these lights on my LED keyboard were designed to shine as I press the keys and they engage, because they do not know how not to shine, so you also do not know how not to shine. Trying to teach yourself not to shine, spirit, is absolutely foreign to you and it does not feel right.

I bless you to shine always, and shine everywhere, and shine like bronze.

I bless you with the capacity to shine even when you are feeling hopeless.

“Let your light so shine before men” means “allow or permit your light to shine”. It takes no effort to allow you to shine because shine is what light does. But it takes all sorts of effort to block a light from shining.

I bless you spirit, with a deep and far-reaching shine, a shine that pushes back the demonic darkness that is a twisting of G-d’s purpose for the darkenes He brings.

I bless others to see truth more clearly because you shone, spirit.

I bless you with the revelation that your Father is not the Father of Darkness, but the Father of Lights, and because He is Your Father, you are therefore by definition, light.

I bless you with all these things, spirit, in the name of Yeshua.

Blessing of the December Window of Reconciliation #7: Destiny Aspect, Right Product, Right Lane, Right Path

Beloved, I would like to invite your spirit forward, this time to attention, and though I am not a drill sergeant, this blessing might be a bit more on the proactive side of things. And that is okay.

Spirit, I would like for you to join me for a few minutes. Spirit, if you will, listen to the word of G-d for you for today. As much as what I am about to say might sound like home to you, it’s not about home. It is about the journey.

G-d said to Jacob, “Arise, go up to Bethel and dwell there. Make an altar there to the G-d who appeared to you when you fled from your brother Esau.”

Genesis 35:1 ESV

Arise and Go

Spirit, Qum, lechu. That’s Hebrew for “get up,” or “arise,” and “walk”. We have an excursion. Jacob’s life at this point was not about sitting on his keister and duff and allowing G-d’s purposes to come to him, because there were plenty of enemies surrounding him. His sons Simeon and Levi (the Prophet and the Teacher) had just gotten done making a mess of his relationships with the land of Shechem, after what Shechem had done to their sister. Jacob’s apparent refusal to deal in justice on behalf of his daughter led to the circumstances where his sons had to fix things, and it cost them.

Spirit, arise. Kum. Your perspective in this season is about to change, as is your geography, but only if you want them to change. G-d can give you the vision, but you have to move. Lechu. It is time to get the blood flowing into your legs as you see out the new thing Father is about to do in you.

It is not about sitting and letting life happen to you, letting it pass you by. It is, in this season about minding the gap and jumping aboard the train whereever the L-rd is going to see it.

Spirit I bless your reaction time to be speedy and full of vitality.

To Bethel

Spirit, you need vision, and open access to heaven and to see what the King is doing on your behalf.

In order to accomplish that, you MUST be seated in the right place in order to receive. You must go to the right piece of land, buy it, no matter if that land is in the People’s Republic of California (which is severely hurting after the gang-raping of the 1840’s), or if that land is on Manhattan Island, or the mountains of Bethel. It might mean that you have a journey to a land that is not in alignment with the current nature of your current set of resources. You might have to liquidate your current set of assets and change them out to a diferent set of resources.

I bless you with the willingness to go where you need to go, and I bless you with the skill to initiate trades into the resources that will suit your location.

Dwell There

Spirit, Jacob was not sent to Bethel to merely have a worship service and move on, but rather to live on and get used to the flow of the land, which was radically different than Aram Naharaim. The land was designed to become his home. And, spirit, the land of Bethel was made to feed Jacob’s spirit repeatedly, just as it had fed him in Genesis 28:11-22). He was made for that land to unpack vision and a purpose for the remainder of his life.

Spirit, I bless you to move to and dwell in the land Father wants for you in this season, and I bless you to receive from and give to the land the things Father has in that exchange. I bless you to expand and your vitality to grow.

I bless you to have the depth of well to draw from as you begin to dwell on that land where you belong, and to find in the Father’s presence, your belongingness, and in the presence of Jesus, your worth, and in the Holy Spirit, your competency.

Make An Altar

Spirit, when you get home to the piece of land where you belong, I bless you to make an altar to the L-rd. And I bless you to celebrate the L-rd’s purpose in creating you and hardwiring you for greatness. I bless your competency and your dominion. And I bless you to know that you have a place along each season of your journey where you belong.

I bless you to not neglect the gift of G-d that is in you from conception, from the new birth, and from the laying on of hands. I bless your altar and place of dedication to the King to not be corrupted or disrupted by any scheme of the enemy, and that when the enemy attempts to assault you at the altar, that the L-rd would thunder against him and all of his schemes.

I bless you with a deep revelation of the Holy Trinity and the Divine Council as you spend time meditiating in His presence.

Escape From Esau

Spirit, you cannot pursue your path fully, nor produce your G-d-ordained product for the kingdom, so long as you are allowing yourself to be subject to the spirit of jealousy. The lane, dear heart, will not be straight so long as you jealousy is permitted a place at your table. I give you permission to rout jealousy completely, spirit.

Truly, truly, I bless you to remember the L-rd’s former deliverances from the hand of those who have flowed against you in the spirit of jealousy. I bless you, spirit with comprehensive protection from Adonai Tsevaot, the L-rd of Hosts, and from Adonai Echad, the L-rd who is One, and the Father of the Heavenly Lights, which are the Hosts of Heaven, and the Father of the L-rd of Hosts, Yeshua ha-Mashiach.

Spirit, I bless you with deep peace, and I bless you with a strong and well-callibrated plumbline that helps you not take the bait of deception.

I bless you not to succumb to the temptation to
throw a wet towel on yourself,
limit yourself,
corral yourself,
edit yourself,
emasculate yourself,
or engage in the abominable practice of pharonic circumcision to your vitality and your fullness just because others cannot handle you, spirit.

Father can handle you, and your shipmates can handle you. The junk theology cannot handle you though. So I bless you with your hands being taught to war and your fingers to battle.

Zero Tolerance For the Deception That Takes Advantage of the Open Door Created By Jealousy

SPIRIT, I WOULD EXHORT YOU WITH THE FOLLOWING

It. Is. Written.

DO NOT BE DECEIVED

Every single good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of Lights, the Father Who Does Not Change, in the way shifting shadows ever change.

In Brilliant, real-white, opalescent light, sitting on the infinitely-colored-and-yet-Agean-Azure-Sapphire Throne between the infinitely-eye-laden wheels-within-wheels with sight in all direction. He is the Kaleidoscope Superior. And He provides the right, multi-faceted lenses, cut perfectly so you can see exactly what you need to see in sequence, as the colored chips of His polyvareigated wisdom and glory fall right into place right into sequence, in perfect alignment without a violation of your free will, as in the mystery of the syncronization between his sovereignty and your free will, there is an perfect enmeshment of light and truth.

Spirit, I bless you with the revelation that,
even thought He is sovereign…
He is not in control…
And does not always get what He wants in the culture…

But, spirit, with you, as you partner with Him and hear what He wants to do, and it blesses you and you partner with it, and walk in agreement with it, may the light fall into place where He wants it, and may you be enlivened to action and to causes that will leave the kingdom effects in place, so that, at least with you He does get what He wants.

I bless you, spirit, to value everything that He values, and that fully includes the good things He has placed in you.

And I bless you to refrain from damning yourself in ways and areas where He has not.

And above all of this, I bless you spirit with the revelation that He is happy and pleased with how He made you, even when the Calvinists who demand a whipping boy for all of their junk doctrine of the condition of believers do not. I bless you to receive Father’s approval ESPECIALLY when dour-faced, piss-and-bleach-guzzling, jealous believers do not approve.

I bless you spirit, with the revelation that Father loves what He sees when He looks at you, and He laughs with you and helps you to ascend to the place where His blueprints are. I bless you with an enjoyment rather than a self-flagellation of your identity, because spirit, He made you, designed you, and hardwired you as you are, whether Prophet with your high-strung emotion and cranky attitude toward unrighteousness, or Servant with your knack for helping everyone, or Teacher with your Anchor truth, slow gait, and FREAKING AWESOME PLACE OF SAFETY, or Exhorter with your breathtaking revelation and breathless pace of horizontal human relationships, or Giver with your wealth of gathering resources and being able to discern the pith of a situation, or Ruler/Judge/Deliverer, with your capacity to build an empire with a skeleton crew and do much with few imperfect resources, or Mercy with your touchy-feely Ethereal affection and intimacy and erstwhile whimsy and bouts of meloncholy.

Every gift that comes from the Father of Lights is both good and perfect, even those gifts that seem hard and come with a high responsiblity, and even those gifts that may seem like they are causing pain. I bless you with the skill to parse out between the pain that comes from the clowns and the enemy, and the pain that comes as a gift from the Father to refine you.

I bless you with His light, love, and pleasure in your hunting for your right path, your right lane, and your right adventure. I bless you will all of these revelations in the name of Yeshua ha-Mashiach.

Blessing of the December Window of Reconciliation #6: Destiny Aspect, Right Adventure With Right Friends

Beloved, I would like to invite your spirit forward in the name of Yeshua.

Spirit, Listen to the word of G-d for you for today.

Some went down to the sea in ships, doing business on the great waters;
they saw the deeds of the L-RD, his wondrous works in the deep.
For he commanded and raised the stormy wind, which lifted up the waves of the sea.
They mounted up to heaven; they went down to the depths; their courage melted away in their evil plight;
they reeled and staggered like drunken men and were at their wits’ end. Then they cried to the L-RD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.
He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed.
Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven.
Let them thank the L-RD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man!”

Psalm 107:23–31 ESV

Spirit, not only do we need the right home, and not only do we need the right relationship with the right Father, but we also need the right cadre of friends to engage our destiny with us.

We were made to become people of destiny in the context of community.

Now, some of you in isolation might say “why is that?”.

In order to answer that, I have to tell you a story.

Spirit, I have a sailor friend whose name is Bryan. He is a sailor’s sailor and has always made a home or found a place at sea. From stints in the Navy and the Army Corps of Engineers to tours near Nigeria, he has gone down to the sea repeatedly in ships and done business on the water. He has seen the works of the King on the waters.

And he has shared with me that sailors frequently have inked on their knuckles the words “Hold Fast”. if you wash overboard, that rope to which you are tied may be the last thing keeping you from physical death. In so many contexts, holding onto a lifeline is all that stands between us an eternity.

Likewise, at least four of Jesus’ Twelve fished on Lake Galilee: Simon Peter, Andrew, James, and John. And they would have understood in squalls the dangers inherent with sailing.

Unlike a cruise-ship, which is the ultimate form of mothering, military and other sailing and fishing vessels are solid expressions of fathering. The need on a boat is to develop the tools necessary to survive and thrive and return home safely. And often times, in order to thrive on a ship or a boat, you have to take calculated risks relative to your environment. And in all of that, whatever you do, spirit, do not let go of the rope. Hold fast.

And have a crew of mates that you can connect with that will work with you and help you learn the ropes and will have your back and keep you safe.

And it takes a group of people each weaving together their unique set of principles together, and bringing those sets together that helps us move into destiny. One man or woman cannot pilot a vessel alone to do a task alone. Destiny is a community skill. And Several sets of eyes that can see the various aspects are so desperately needed.

And love which flows between brothers and sisters is needed.

So spirit, I bless you for the seasons when you will be abroad. I bless you no matter the nature of the water or the location of the water. I bless you when you must be on the open ocean, or on the lakes or rivers, or in the waters underneath the earth. I bless you when the waters are calm, and I bless you when the waters are boiling out of control. I bless you when there is a red sky at night and at morning. I bless you when you are surrounded by sharks and when the waters are pure sapphire. I bless you to have the right mates. I bless your friendships to be rejuvenating and life-giving, and importantly, life-PRESERVING.

I bless you to find THE RIGHT BERTH ON THE RIGHT VESSEL, and to link up with THE RIGHT CREW. For whatever reason, the following poem feels appropriate here.

I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking. 

I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying. 

I must down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

Sea Fever by John Masefield

I bless your business and I bless your vision to see the works of G-d in the depths of the deep.

I bless you to be aware of the dynamics of Leviathan, whereever you are, in seven heads. I bless your compass, chronometer, sextant, pelorus, and maps to be true and accurate. I bless your skill in using them.

Spirit, I bless you with a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover. I bless you with lads who will keep you aboard and welcome you into their cabal as they accomplish great exploits in the name of the Captain of Our Salvation.

I bless you, mariners, to hear the voice of your ship and crew. I bless you when the storm is getting worse. I bless you with adventure and safe passage, no matter where the map and route take you. I bless you to know when your ship needs rest, and your mates need a hand, or a look, or a smile, or a heart.

I bless you to sleep aboard your ship when the Captain sleeps, and I bless you to wake when the Captain awakens. I bless you with love to keep your ship in its right alignment. And I bless you to be fathered in the wholeness of cause-and-effect that is critical to the operation of a fathering vessel that carries sons of the kingdom. I bless your reins to provide you counsel in the night seasons. I bless your capacity to see the usefulness of everyone else around you whose gifts are nothing like yours. And, importantly, I bless your capacity and skill at meshing your skills together with theirs, and no matter the conditions, to sail effectively. And to reach not only your destiny, but the desired haven of your home, having accomplished what the L-rd intended you to accomplish.

I bless you with wholeness in your community, as you seek for your place among your tribe. Be at peace, spirit, in the name of Yeshua.

Blessing of the December Window of Reconciliation #5: Destiny Aspect, Right Father

“Safe?” said Mr Beaver …”Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good.

from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

Beloved, I would like to engage with your spirit in the name of Yeshua, if they are willing.

Spirit, listen to the word of G-d for you for today.

αὶ εἷς ἐκ τῶν πρεσβυτέρων λέγει μοι· μὴ κλαῖε, ἰδοὺ ἐνίκησεν ὁ λέων ὁ ἐκ τῆς φυλῆς Ἰούδα, ἡ ῥίζα Δαυίδ, ἀνοῖξαι τὸ βιβλίον καὶ τὰς ἑπτὰ σφραγῖδας αὐτοῦ.

And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judas, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.”

Revelation 5:5

Spirit, there is a line of thinking that came into being with the writings of Jack Lewis that the L-rd is not safe. Indeed, in the Chronicles of Narnia, Mr. Beaver said he was not safe.

And truly, when someone is wounded or bruised or smoldering, a bruised reed Messiah will not break, and a smoldering wick He will not extinguish.

But, when the time comes for us to grow into kingdom sons, He is not going to lead us merely or only into the safe place of home, but into the risk-laden context of the wilderness. Spirit, Father did not bring us home to leave us home, but to have a safe harbor from which to do exploits on behalf of the King. And when we travel, Father goes with us, and He allows good things to come into our lives as well as testing and difficult things.

The issue is not whether or not Jesus is safe in that we can control Him, but whether or not He is good, meaning “consistent and trustworthy, free from corruption, and incorruptible”.

In the first blessing, I reminded you of the anchor that was the most trustworthy. Our best anchor is in G-d’s nature. And because everything He created was good, it follows that He who is the Source of all is also good.

Goodness is so lacking in our culture. Alienation in many places prevails.

And the masculine, fathering antidote for the brokenness is not the mothering attribute of safety, but rather goodness.

Goodness is brought about by execution, by a G-d who executes. By a good Father of Lights Who gives us every good and perfect gift. Goodness is seen EVERYWHERE, including in what He has put into you.

Father is going to challenge you, spirit. Father will spend some time working to heal you, but after a season of healing, He will take you out on an adventure with him. You might have to climb mountains, or swim oceans, or work with people who are occasionally ungrateful. You might have to run a marathon, or embrace some pain.

But, spirit, I bless you to rest in your Father’s goodness. I bless you with not just an anchoring place in home, but also a place of rest in Father’s affection as He is doing the grueling work of training you and refining you and giving you sometimes more than you can handle.

I bless you not to rely on Father’s safety when you are questing about, but on His goodness, which is central to His nature.

And that you can praise Him even when He sends you an unlikely messenger to correct you. I bless you spirit to hear Father speak in the Prophet language of Greek and in the Giver language of Hebrew.

Both Prophets and Givers are CRITICAL to your life, spirit, and I bless you to hear what Father is doing as He does it. I bless you to see, hear, smell, touch, taste, and experience the full range of Father’s good pleasure and His good gifts, even if they come in the form of fiery trials.

I bless you, in those season when you are laying on the pavement with a bleeding artery to savor the flavor of grace Father brings to you, whether it is repairing a transected artery, or eating a bowl of your favorite ice cream.

I bless you to lean hard into Him and the strength of His goodness when everything is going up in flames.

I bless you with hyperendurant resolve.

I bless you, spirit, to be galvanized against all the plans of the evil one and the clowns.

I bless you radiantly, affectionately, and zealously, in the name of Yeshua.

I bless you to find the silver lining when the clouds have gathered. I bless you with chops and strength and massive resolve and life and peace and understanding and PLENTY OF FIGHT.

Even in the dark night of the soul….

Blessing of the December Window of Reconciliation #4: Destiny Aspect: Right Home

Beloved,

I would like to invite your spirit forward to encamp with me about a specific truth.

Spirit, you were made for a right home that is a place from which you proceed to the adventures Father has for you.

Listen to the word of G-d for you for today.

And the LORD God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there he put the man whom he had formed.

Genesis 2:8 ESV

Spirit, when G-d made Adam, and provided him his spirit, it was not in the context of the garden. It was in the context of a wilderness place away from the garden. We are not told where specifically in Scripture, but we are told it was not the garden.

We are however told that sons are creators based on the illustrations of what sons like David, Solomon, Josiah, Nehemiah, Moses, Deborah, Mary the mother of Jesus, Martha, Peter, John, Andrew, and Paul did. In order for a person to become a son, they must first be unpacked. And because Adam was the son of G-d, I would imagine G-d created him strategically far from the garden so as to help Adam unpack his abilities along the way by introducing him gradually in the wilderness to sundry aspects of the Father’s creation. And for Mercies to be adequately unpacked (Adam was indeed a Mercy), given they are by nature a bit slower than the other gifts in some ways, they need a longer process that is more marked by gentleness than others.

And I imagine Adam longed for a place to call home. A place to call his own. A place without property taxes and fees to rent and a place where Father dwelled.

For Adam, that home was with Father and Eve in the garden.

Spirit, in order for you to walk into you destiny, you need a place to call home.

And that place, whereever it is, is characterized by at least a couple of things: The presence of a loving and good Father, and a place of safety where you can learn how to be you as you step into the office of person.

I will cover the dynamic of the safe home in this post and the presence of a good Father in one of the two next.

When you have a place you can truly be you, you can branch out and decide what you like and what you do not like. You can allocate your likes and dislikes and grow into the person you were made to become.

So spirit, without stifling you, I would like to offer you the following blessing.

I bless you with a place to call home. I bless you with a place you can lay your head down and sleep in peace, whatever that is supposed to look like.

Whether your pleasure is coffee or tea; black, extra light, or bulletproof; hot or iced; cakes, cookies, muffins or biscuits (southern biscuits or English biscuits); chips or crisps; ketchup, tartar sauce, malt vinegar, aioli, or none of the above; ranch or italian; cookies or brownies; math or science; carpet or hardwood; and sunny, snowing, or rainy; I bless you with a place that is appointed in keeping with the preferences Father placed into you, spirit.

I bless you with a place that has soft grass, or sandy desert, or Carolina clay, or forests, or ocean surfs, or mountains (“mountains, Gandalf! And find a quiet place where I can finish my book.”) as those are each life-giving in unique ways to different people, depending of where we grew up and what our spirits each like.

I bless you with a home that appeals to you, whether city or country.

I bless you with being surrounded with the animals you enjoy, or the absence of animals if you prefer that.

For those that bend toward the arts, I bless you with the resources needed to own those sorts of art media that give life, whether that medium or expression is digital, or canvas, or Procreate, or a piano, or a some other musical instrument, or a throwing wheel, or drawing pencils, or oils, or acrylics, or sheet metal, or leather, or woodworking, or sewing implements, or crochet hooks, or needles and cross stich.

For those that move, I bless you with the means to exercise, whether that is a place that has free-weights, or treadmills, or a road or track on which to run, or a bike, a pool, a sparring partner, a 24-form, a football, a tennis racquet, a lacrosse field, leaves to rake, lawns to mow, the colors of fall leaves and the sounds of the crunch beneath your feet as you do the yardwork, loamy or clay-like soil in which you place compost and plants. I bless you, spirit, to move as you process the riddles and problems that you are working at solving.

For those that read, research, and write, I bless you with the books, tomes, inks, quills, parchments, and a desk of your chosen size, shape, and material.

I bless you with a home that above all, is a place of rejuvenation and restoration. I bless you with a place that enables you to level set from any potential disjointings of the world that you have worked in and lived in during the day.

I bless you spirit with a safe place complete with “the cool of the day” whatever that looks like to you. I bless you with a safe harbor and a home in which to anchor.

I bless you in the name of Yeshua ha-Mashiach.

Blessing of the December Window of Reconciliation #3: Destiny Aspect: Right Time, Rightly Sanctified

Beloved, I would like to invite your spirit forward for a connection.

Spirit, listen to the word of G-d for you for today.

“And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation.”

Genesis 2:2–3 ESV

“And he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.”

Mark 2:27 ESV

Spirit, before you can sally forth to do exploits for the king, your timeline must be rightly set, and rightly aligned. Note, even G-d rested and was refreshed (Exodus 31:17). G-d needs seasons where He is refreshed. It’s not that He needs things the way we account needs. But there are needs that G-d has, as He accounts needs. He needs–or maybe a better word is “desires”– to have regular times of connection with us, times of refreshing, times of rest, times to ruminate while listening to and observing various aspects of His creation humming along.

Spirit, whether or not the soul and body with whom you reside understand it, rest is part of your design. It is inbred into you because it is part of G-d’s design. Being refreshed is something for which you were made. A right timeline that is sanctified is also a real and deep need.

So, spirit, I bless you with the right timestream. You are made for time. You were made to not waste time, or to curse time, as Python has choked the life out of this year. You were made to war in time, for time rightly set up and rightly alighned.

Lord Jesus, I bless and beseech you to war for the right timestream flow for each of these who will read this long after it has been written. I ask You to interfere with the plans of your ancient enemy to befoul and screw up the timeline of these Your family.

Father G-d, I ask that you come and I appeal to you as the Ancient of Days to bring Your righteous chronometer with its ever-flowing pendulum and constant sweep-hand. Father I ask you to set the Chronometer you intend in these your children and remove the vestiges of any counterfeit chronometers, broken clocks, busted wristwatches, and false or disoriented chronometers, and those perverted by Daylight Saving Time.

I ask that You would set things as far as the time flow you have for this your child in array against the befouling works of Leviathan, and to move, oh lovely Ancient of Days, against the twisting and coiling nonsense of Leviathan’s machinations against Your time line of Your children. Every day, untwisted and perfectly aligned and sanctified, that You have ordained for this, your child, was written in Your book for them before one of them came to be.

And as a member of Your royal priesthood and a Mercy who is designed to bring the flow of time into alignment and see it sanctified, I ask You to sanctify each of these days, setting them apart unto Your specific purposes for each.

And spirit, I bless you to receive the resources of sanctified days, even the days that remain unto 2020, and I bless you to skillfully weave together the principles of declaration as it pertains to this year, and to war with violence against the mindset that 2020 is a byword to be cursed.

Spirit, be refreshed with the right time, at the right time, and know that, you were made for this year, which is why G-d trusts you with the hardy gift that is this year.

And be at peace to rest deeply as you garner the spiritual, emotional, and physical capital needed to proceed to your destiny.

Apart from adequate rest and and sanctified timeline, your capacity to possess your birthright will be drastically taxed.

I bless you with the tenacity to work with your timeline and to sanctify it and see it rightly set up, in the name of Yeshua ha-Mashiach

Blessing of the December Window of Reconciliation #2: Destiny Aspect: Right Ideology

Beloved, I would like to invite your spirit to be present here as I bless them. Spirit, listen to the word of G-d for you for today.

Then Moses said to G-d, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The G-d of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” G-d said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”

Exodus 3:13–14 ESV

“Then you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says the L-RD, Israel is my firstborn son, and I say to you, “Let my son go that he may serve me.” If you refuse to let him go, behold, I will kill your firstborn son.’”

Exodus 4:22–23 ESV

Spirit, the L-rd did not send Moses to Mizraim until after he anchored him several ways. One of those ways in which Moses was anchored was in the right ideology. The best anchor point that we can have is in G-d’s character. Not in our relationship with Him because sometimes, as David wrote repeatedly in the Psalms, our relationship is not always the way we want it (ideal), not in ourselves or our own ideas (sometimes our ideas don’t mesh well with G-d’s ideas, especially when we are so convinced we are unlovely, not even in statements of Scripture by themselves (because we have a breadth of statements in Scripture that believers use to assault us as miserable, wretched, worm, bastard sinners), not in emotional connection (because those connections ebb and flow), not in family (dysfunctional as they get).

G-d’s nature.

That is a specific body of unchanging reality. And yes, some of it is embodied in Scripture. But the reason, as above, I didn’t say Scripture is our anchor point, is precisely because people have used portions of the body of Scripture to say some pretty destabilizing things to us or about us.

So, spirit, consider that above passage. Moses went to Mizraim after He understood the nature of G-d. And the above passages tell us two things about the nature of G-d. One, that He IS. There is the IS-ness and the BEING-ness about G-d where G-d is outside of time and within time and everywhere and that communicates AVAILABILITY of G-d, NEARNESS of G-d, and CONSTANCY of G-d.

Second, the second passage says something about G-d’s nature.

And Imma just say this because some of y’all need to hear this with your spirits, deeply and affectionately.

G-d’s first self-revelation outside of his beingness and His constancy to Moses, and HIS FIRST REVELATION OF HIMSELF TO A PAGAN RULER, was the picture of a loving, affectionate, tender, and jealously-protective FATHER.

Spirit, there was a time when G-d was not Creator, and Maker of Heaven and Earth.

But there was NEVER a time when G-d was not Father.

Jesus, Eternally-and-forever-begotten of G-d, defined the Father as Father.

So, spirit, I bless you with the deep revelation of the eternality of G-d as Father and as the CONSTANT-across-all-time-unchanging-G-d Who is I AM.

And in the strength of that truth, I bless you spirit to pursue your destiny in fullness. That not a shred of your destiny would go unexplored.

I bless you with the revelation that the fullness of your destiny is in the soft-and-tender, affectionate hand of the Father of Lights, who is keenly interested and invested in your success. Father has skin in the game, such that He will deal with the fruit of wickedness that belongs to His ancient enemy.

I bless you with that deep understanding, in the name of Yeshua ha-Mashiach.

And His name shall be called, Wonderful Counselor, Mighty G-d, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace…

From Isaiah 9:6

Blessing of the December Window of Reconciliation #1: Destiny Aspect: Pain and Suffering and Our Response To It

Beloved, I would like to invite your spirit to attend to the text of Scripture below. Spirit, hear the word of the L-rd for you for today.

Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty warrior, but he was the son of a prostitute. Gilead was the father of Jephthah. And Gilead’s wife also bore him sons. And when his wife’s sons grew up, they drove Jephthah out and said to him, “You shall not have an inheritance in our father’s house, for you are the son of another woman.” Then Jephthah fled from his brothers and lived in the land of Tob, and worthless fellows collected around Jephthah and went out with him.
After a time the Ammonites made war against Israel. And when the Ammonites made war against Israel, the elders of Gilead went to bring Jephthah from the land of Tob. And they said to Jephthah, “Come and be our leader, that we may fight against the Ammonites.” But Jephthah said to the elders of Gilead, “Did you not hate me and drive me out of my father’s house? Why have you come to me now when you are in distress?”

Judges 11:1-7 ESV

Spirit, it is possible to possess your birthright in isolation, but we cannot become people of destiny apart from community.

And in order to have the destiny that belongs to us in fullness, we need not just any community, but the right community.

Spirit, I would encourage you to remember, that G-d wastes nothing, even our mistakes and our selections of the wrong communities. He was here first, He allows and orders our steps, and though He is sovereign, He is not in control as with a marionette. Unlike Panem, He does not dangle your reality out of reach like a carrot to a donkey.

He does not reap you in order to terrorize you and keep you grasping for something unreachable.

He may use you to thwart a wicked system or wicked systems, and He may allow you painful passages for a season because He is hunting for true social justice, not the place where one political party overthrows another so that the oppressed can become the oppressors, but the L-rd’s destruction of unjust power structures so that HE CAN RADIATE HIS GLORY IN INTEGRITY and so the government can be placed more firmly upon His shoulder (Isaiah 9:6). In order to accomplish this, He may allow you to come to some level of harm in order to accomplish an end against his enemy from which they will never recover. You may end up putting some real skin in the game, and enduring some real pain, so the enemy thinks you are out because of despair. Friends may appear to turn against you, but this is all to the working of the L-rd.

Spirit, the question is, how will you respond when you are placed in painful situations, not situations of abundant comfort, but of abundant discomfort, pressed in on every side?

Jephthah faced three problems as I see it.

  1. He forgot who the real enemy was. He was focused on the people who had made fun of him, ran him out of town, probably gaslit him, not remembering that the L-rd’s enemies throughout the book of Judges were the Baalim which His people stubbornly worshipped. He focused on their hatred and so backed himself into a corner that was not the L-rd’s focus for him.
  2. He did not realize the L-rd was allowing pain into his life in order to build a greater victory against the L-rd’s enemies. G-d allows pain to bring us up to a higher place of earned authority.
  3. Most importantly, Jephthah responded to the pain in many horrid ways, wrong ways, and this wrong response to pain, instead of bringing a blessing, brings a skewed perspective and violated boundaries.

So spirit, when bad things happen to you, I bless you to slow down, stop, pause, and reflect.

I bless you to Selah.

I bless you to purposefully ascertain and discern any potential reasons the L-rd may be allowing painful situations.

I bless you to stop and connect as deeply as you can with the L-rd and to learn His plan for you in this season of pain. Jephthah was a warrior and designed to war, not to lead politically. The L-rd intentionally created a vacuum in military leadership so He could bring His children to accept His appointed general for that season.

I bless you not to engage in rash vows or hasty decisions.

I bless you to hear His voice.

I bless you to enshroud yourself in Father’s-wisdom-baptized decisions, and not go beyond and sacrifice things He never told you to sacrifice, unlike Jephthah.

I bless you to rest and allow the L-rd to unfold His plans in fullness so you can have not just your birthright, but also your destiny in the context of the series of communities He has for you.

Be at peace and rest in His love for you, spirit.

In the name of Yeshua ha-Mashaiach.

Blessing of Stillness #23: Father of Lights

Beloved,

I would like to invite your spirit to be present to hear the word of the L-rd for today.

Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

James 1:16-17 ESV

Spirit, there is a place of stillness, before the Father brings His light into your life, where it is easy to receive the darkness of deception, masquerading as a false light.

I begin the blessing in this way, not so you are frightened to step into the blessing, but rather so you are aware of the risks associated with discernment. I also bless you to find the space associated with the timespan of discernment. You are allowed to take time to discern. You need not feel pressure to rush as you are engaging an exercise of spiritual discernment.

After the L-rd’s promise to our father Abraham, the first thing that happened, after a season of not bearing children, and that came behaving like it was the promise was the counsel of Abram’s wife. Sarai offered up her maidservant Hagar to Abraham, ostensibly to provide the child of promise. And for a moment, I imagined Abram probably froze and thought, “wait a minute. what of the promises of G-d?”

And then after that moment had passed, when Sarai had prevailed upon him, Abram took Hagar and married her and immediately produced a child, that sowed jealousy and discord between the women in the home.

Spirit, the promise of the Father does not come because we help G-d out. Granted, there are times when Father expects us to put skin into the game, but His solutions do a problem never involve something that will intentionally breed jealousy as a product.

True, people may grow jealous because of the gifts G-d gives us, but G-d never blesses us with the intention of causing other people to stumble and fall.

Ishmael, who came, was the false hope and the false light.

Ishmael was the plan of the enemy to supplant Father’s plan, which involved Sarai being blessed in her womb, thus breaking the curse of barrenness.

Isaac was the true child of promise, and it was his presence that gave life to Sarai’s womb.

Spirit, apply that here. You will have the opportunity to engage with the false light and the true light. The false light usually comes as a counterfeit first.

And you have the opportunity to choose. And you will have the chance to ask Father to show you what the counterfeit looks like. And He in His mercy will show you what has happened before to lead others astray.

If you will ask Father, he will show you both the true and examples of the false.

Indeed, bank tellers actually do study counterfeit money to know what has happened before, though they do not dwell on the false. Do not believe that old wives’ tale that they only spend their training studying the real money.

Spirit, when that moment of darkness comes, I bless you to be still and stay put and await the light of Father to radiate into your own life. I bless you to be still even when darkness is what you see and even when counterfeit light is provided to you. I bless you when you are thirsty for the true light, with a stubbornness of resistance to every false light that seeks to destabilize you.

I bless you to remain absolutely still and I bless you to allow the circus to pass by. I bless you to resist buying tickets to the circus.

Spirit, I bless you deeply with the capacity to wait on the L-rd’s solution and his life. I bless you to move when that solution comes, and when His aural light compasses you, while remaining still when the enemy counterfeit comes. I bless you to drink deeply of that light and to absorb it into the light that you are, spirit. And I bless you to fan that light out in it’s multi-faceted wisdom to others in need, as Father directs you to hand it out to them.

I bless you to be what you are, the prism, diamond, and crystal through which his brilliant light is broken apart into its full chronorama. I bless your season to bathe in and be healed by the Light that does not shift of change or vary. I bless you with the revelation that His light is possessed not just with consistency, but also constancy.

As William Shakespeare once uttered the principle that was meant to be uttered by the King of Glory:

“I AM constant as the Northern Star”.

The Father of Lights is fixed between all dimensions, in all realities, and he does not vascillate. He is not wishy-washy. Even should the guide stars and parallaxes and pulsars and red giants fall from their places where they were placed on the Fourth Day, He will not be moved from his place of steadiness. He is constant beyond the constant of light, spirit. He is the Radiance of all light that is.

And just because he is constant and immovable does not mean that His heart is not moved when one of his children is hurting or destroyed or damaged or beaten.

To the contrary, He does move toward them. But He moves, spirit, with an anchoredness. He will not be shaken.

And I bless you not to be shaken when confronted with counterfeit light. I bless you to be gathered by the true Light of Father’s affectionate and warm countenance.

I bless you with SHARP discernment to know the difference between lights, and to welcome the Father of Lights, who will not force Himself on you, but will wait for your invitation and who also offers you an invitation.

Be at peace, spirit, and receive the blessing of the Father of Lights.

I bless you to know that the Father of Lights is not shifty or shady. He does not tell you He will provide something, and then not follow through. He gives what He says he is going to give.

I bless you with a relationship with the Father of Lights that is free of deception. I bless you, if you have previously taken the bait of offense, to rest in His light as He removes all hooks from your mouth, all snares from your feet, all chains from your arms, and all shrapnel from your body.

I bless you to rest and heal in the warmth of His Light.

I bless the scales to be removed from your eyes, spirit, as you follow His path and through His gate, which is narrow.

I bless you to traverse the high places which might have unexpected turns with the Light of His steady presence and affection.

I bless you to know that He allows the crooked paths and in partnership with You, makes those paths as if they were straight, and He is your guide.

I bless you with the knowledge that the Father of Lights is a better, more accurate, and way more surefooted guide than any sherpa on Everest.

I bless you to enter into His ever-rest.

I bless you, spirit with a life that is unplugged from unsustainable covenants and agreements with darkness, and I bless you with the freedom that comes from the one-sided covenant He made with you, that does not have any hidden clauses or gotcha statements or fine print with exceptions and signing statements.

I bless you with a relationship with Father that is free from guile and duplicity.

I bless every path you traverse with sure-footedness.

I bless you that as you submit to His plan, He will transform you from glory to glory, and from strength to strength.

I bless you to stand in His light, and I bless you to flow with Him in peace, and even when you are climbing and healing and running and resting, to be in a place of stillness that keeps you rock-steady in His light and in wholeness and peace.

I bless you with peace in the midst of readiness.

And I bless you with stillness in the midst of discerning between the real and the false.

I bless you with those things in the name of Yeshua ha-Meshiach.

BLESSING OF STILLNESS #22: STILLNESS IN THE MIDST OF CONFLICT AND DISPUTE, THE STILLNESS THAT HONORS WHAT EACH OF YOU BRING TO THE TABLE

Beloveds, I would like to invite your spirits forward should they wish to join me, wherever you are each located, on this, the final day of the window of reconciliation to G-d.

Listen, o spirits of my tribesmen and tribeswomen, to the Word of G-d for you for today, to whatever degree you deem appropriate.

“All this is from G-d, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:that G-d was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.”2 Cor. 5:18-19”

Spirit, the L-rd has created a pause, even in the vale of the worst conflicts, for each of us, regardless of level of woundedness or heartache, or spiritual anguish, or mistreatment, or offense, or mischaracterization, to restrain ourselves and seek His reconciliation with those we at first think the enemy.It is in that moment that we give others the honor that they did not earn, but for which Christ died. It is that honor I extend to you.

I bless you with the stillness in the chaos to await the illumination of the Holy Spirit, that that light would not only show you the way, but also that that light would shine wherever G-d wants it to shine, and that He would keep it on whatever point of focus He wants it.

I bless each of you with the moment of stillness to receive the honor that comes from your work as sons of the Kingdom.

I bless you each to refuse to get taken up with mindless speculation and ceaseless disputes, which foster strife, and so miss the moment of stillness that belongs to you in that upheaval.

I bless each of you to slow down and to see the one person to whom you can bring honor, and I bless each of you to resist the Mesmerizing Spirit with its wiles and schemes,

I bless each of you with love and multiplied reconciliation with the Father of the Heavenly Lights.

I bless each of you to know the prevailing fulness of Christ’s abundant grace and love.I bless your hearts with a revelation of HIS tenderness toward each of you and your neighbor, the Samaritan in your life

.I bless each of you to overflow with the ministry of reconcilation that leads to life rather than death. I bless you not to count the sins of others against them in this season

.I bless each of your minds to come alive in and with the mind of Christ and with supernatural Strategy.

I bless your various parts, enforcers, systems, littles, and others with the recognition that each of them are honored and loved and counted as necessary.I bless you each with wholeness, and purpose, and design.

I bless each of your unique designs to spring forth and to spring to defense of the defenseless.I bless each of you with a love that transcends your understanding.

I bless each of you with honor, and recognize that each of you have variously committed to follow the way of love as best each of you know how.I speak to the light and the four winds that they would gather each of you up and move each of you as you wait in stillness to the places where you need to be to each see and hear and know the various pieces of the whole puzzle that each of you have, and to know where those sundry pieces fit, to bring the reconciliation into fulness.

I bless your puzzle pieces, Scrabble Tiles, Monopoly Houses, Go gemstones, and cake ingredients to all align.

That something beautiful would crown this season, and that we can hand those crowns to each of you as the Spirit wills.

In His Holy Name, I resist the spirit of the age that has been released to create an upheaval that would distraction you as you chart your course by His stars to your desired havens.

I bless you in the name of the G-d of the Seven Stars, in stillness.

May you afresh fall in love with Him anew.Be at piece, in the name of אלוהי שבעת הכוכבים
