Riddle Me This?

Book: The Rose That Grew From Concrete by Tupac Shakur

How much longer? What will it take for us to OVERstand on Truth and Justice? Or . . . (sing it with me, fam) “How long shall they kill our prophets while we stand aside and look”? [Acts 7:54-60] My heart is big but my BEING (I see words different so another way I see this word is BE/ IN/ G) is eternal. Shhh….the Bible told me so. Hehehehehehe. I have been growing, waiting, and getting frustrated within and at  myself, at the world, the church, and the God-Head . . .  #Truth

It is ok to be honest with yourself. Everything we EVER hear has already been said (IT IS WRTTEN). Everything any of us will EVER need is here (IT IS WRITTEN). Some of us know and believe more than we realize but one way or another we have come to believe a lie about ourselves.  Thusly, we have reacted in the same manner as how we have been treated. I thank God for ALL those that have gone before me in various ways and ALL those that I have been reading about that are uniting.

This is not a call to believe in Jesus Christ if this is your first time reading my page. If you are reading my page and don’t believe in the Bible or anything it says, perfect, 👏🏾👏🏾⚛️🙌🏾✌️! However, I strongly believe in the Word of God (Jesus Christ-Yeshua HaMashiach) and have Faith in the Spirit of Prophecy (the Testimony of Jesus)!

There is one thing we all believe in, the preservation of life. Life is in the blood.

1) not a bone of Jesus’ body was broken.  Are we showing that Jesus is still on the cross or that He ascended in a cloud after walking the earth in His fleshly yet transfigured and glorified form? 🤔🌈

Well, when bones are burned they turn to ash and can be used to replenish the soil. That was an easy one. Here’s another. There are 206 bones in the body and 22 form the skull. Hmmm… What does the skull protect? Don’t worry. I’m learning patience so I can wait…(do do do do do do do…⌚️⏳)? It protects the brain. What is another term we use for our brain that is less on the physical plane of existence? Our MINDS (mentality, mental state of affairs, mental health DOH!)

1  Corinthians 2:15-16 – But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16 For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.


2) It’s all about the Blood of Christ.

This is true and we know it but do we understand it?  Look at number one again. Not a single bone was broken. Let’s pause and reflect for a moment. ☠️💀🧠🤔

Hebrews 4:12-13 – For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.

Life IS, always will BE, and FOR-EVER HAS been in the blood. This is our DNA. If you are a Christian, gain understanding if you have not been able to comprehend up to this point. That IS also the Finger of God along with every destiny already written in Heaven because . . . IT IS WRITTEN! Blood circulates throughout the Body over the bones but is also created within the bone and is passed on to every human that HAS EVER existed (By His Blood we are saved-Cain? Abel? 🤭🤯⚛️) Forever by the way! 😉🎼🌈🕯🌈🔥🎧👂🏾👉🏾👁😁

Yes we are called to . . .

 Colossians 4:6 – Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.

However . . .

Mark 9:49-50 – “For everyone will be seasoned with fire, and every sacrifice will be seasoned with salt. 50 Salt is good, but if the salt loses its flavor, how will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace with one another.”

In other words . . .

Matthew 7:4-5 – Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. 6 “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.

Far too long WE ALL have been out of order. The above passage is an allusion to a story that I have allowed myself to read and believe incorrectly. The question I asked of Holy Spirit was…”where did Samson’s strength lie”? I already had doubts that it was his hair (we’re not stupid) but, at least for me personally, I’ve never heard what I recently received from Holy Spirit.

Judges 16:18 – When Delilah saw that he had told her all his heart, she sent and called for the lords of the Philistines, saying, “Come up once more, for he has told me all his heart.”

People that cannot see, hear, or understand any heart beyond their own for whatever reason, NEVER will until they choose to. Please, whoever you are, do not let that fester within you to the point of absolute hopelessness or despair. There are more people that care than you can see because of whatever pain you may be in. God is putting them in and on the frontlines of this spiritual warfare that has been raging since before our beginning. God Loves us all. I personally do not care what race, religion, sexual orientation, political affiliation, or whatever other bullshit the “they” have been trying to divide us with. We all have to live here. How we do that depends on “the hearts of the people” AND the Power of the Spirit of God. We all have The God given choice to choose life or death (misery or joy: to follow our giftings or let them be shut down by the faithless). This is a global call. There are too many “soldiers” and “angels” being killed or dying (I’m talking on every front; especially in the bloodline of families).

There IS only ONE. If we can’t even agree to allow people to follow there own faiths to see where it leads (obviously I am not talking about harming one another or destruction of our planet but guarding and knowing our own hearts), how can we stand before The Creator and say, “yes, I’ve tested everything you’ve placed before me.”?These are the ones Jesus always and truly refers to as hypocrites. There’s The Father of Truth and The Father of Lies. Are we trying to BE God or working to ride with King Jesus? If the latter is true then work to turn yourself inward in order to come to a higher level of understanding of what Holy Spirit is saying to you personally. This is not an easy road because many will come to you like they did to Job and tell you that what you know to be true from His Presence is false. Pray: cry: but most importantly do it with Him and for Him. I’m working on it. There are some things that had me in chains that I didn’t even know were chains. Where does your fear “lie”? Do you believe that there are some not worthy in life just because they agree differently than you? God’s government is all that matters and IN EVERY season, IN EVERY nation, GOD ALMIGHTY Runs this. The Captain of the Host is preparing a new breed like never before. They will be called to serve. They have been sitting, gathering, training, and preparing for “such a time as this”. Where is your fear? Follow it with the grace of God and wise council you trust so you can shed that and walk in a new glow! BE fruitful then watch God multiply your fruit. BE diligent, watchful, and always mindful of when the ravens, dove 1, and dove 2 come in your life as signs from God Himself. Though we are not operating out of fear, there are still hurts and deep wounds that only Jesus The Anointed One can heal! Blessings! SELAH!

The Desert is Like a Field With Many Treasures

January 06, 2019

Hebrews 11:7 – By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.

There is new wildlife visible in the “Desert” part of this garden.   Click the link to view some of the fruit that is ready: Desert

Expand, Elevate, and Escalate

January 02, 2019

In my last post, there was a specific thought process that began; seeing patterns and walking in/on purpose {Once You See…}. Today I simply want us all to take a look at the pattern in this title: “Expand, elevate, and escalate”. Some of us already manifest this way and some do not.

Expand: Become or make larger or more extensive. Origin: Late Middle English: from Latin expandere ‘to spread out’, from ex- ‘out’ + pandere ‘to spread’.

Elevate: Raise or lift (something) up to a higher position. Origin: Late Middle English: from Latin elevat- ‘raised’, from the verb elevare, from e- (variant of ex-) ‘out, away’ + levare ‘lighten’ (from levis ‘light’). [Hmmm…I wonder…?raised out of light?]

Escalate: Become or cause to become more intense or serious. [Origin is possibly from the word ‘escalade’: The scaling of fortified walls using ladders, as a form of military attack. Origin: Late 16th century: from French, or from Spanish escalada, escalado, from medieval Latin scalare ‘to scale, climb’, from Latin scala ‘ladder’.]


Why do we suppose Holy Spirit gave me this message today to share? Because He always confirms His Word one way or another and when we ask and seek He always provides (sometimes we don’t realize we have been asking and seeking because we don’t truly know what our hearts are crying out for).

This is an order. Look at the words and context of ‘this is an order’. We can see it as ‘This is an order’ as in a command from The Captain of The Hosts. We can also see it as ‘This is an order’ as in a sequential chain of events (also known as a pattern).

We are being called to expand our minds in order to manifest what we know we possess which is The Mind of Christ. We are being called to elevate our thinking because the Holy Trinity is not nor will ever be one-dimensional. We are being called to escalate (or ‘escalade’) everything we are because Jesus The Christ is The Ladder between Heaven and Earth that we glide upon because we are (always present tense) seated in Heavenly places living in the world.

None of us need discernment to know that we (The Church) have not been faithful to our Lord by thought or action. I will go so far as to say it is because we lack trust in Him because we have chosen not to expand, elevate, or escalate ourselves to Him, by Him, and for Him.

This is a true blue raw writing which I have neglected to do due to fear of persecution from my brethren. I had to come to a place where the God-Head became and becomes my only focus (life long process). I’m nowhere near where I need to be but I’m further along than I was “yesterday”. In order to expand, elevate, and escalate we should separate ourselves from the crowd/multitude just as Christ often did. However, it is just as important to come back down off the mountain and ‘go [move/have our being] in the power of The Spirit’.

Some of our Manna has become stale and moldy. Some of our oil has become rancid for lack of use and out of neglect. God is not in the business of decay. He is in the business of rejuvenation and upcycling. Expand, elevate, and escalate: Ask Holy Spirit to expand your “territories” (reclaim what the enemy has and is trying to take from you thus from The Lord-an example is our minds/emotions); Ask Holy Spirit to elevate you (lift you out of the muck of confusion and make clear His Truth to you and for your purpose); Ask Holy Spirit to escalate all parts of you and to help you escalate your situations back to Him to be the soldier He created you to be in this battle between Love and Fear.

Truth never fails. Truth never dies. If Jesus is Truth and God is Love and Jesus is God then Truth is Love and Love is Truth. By the way, Church, saying that you are saying something “in love” doesn’t mean it is and doesn’t mean it will be received as such so either know it is or don’t say anything until you feel sure. There is a guided way and a confused way. Time to “let our shine arise”.
