He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. KJV
It's by faith, by the Holy Spirit of God that we become who he has created us to be. As we press in, and breakthrough into the higher realms of the Spirit do we begin to understand exactly what that looks like. There is much, much more for us than what we are currently accessing. Go higher! Dive in deeper, and don't be satisfied with just what you physical eyes can see. It's time to walk in the Spirit, see in the Spirit, hear the Spirit and expand the Kingdom of God! Rise up son's of God!
"That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovest me before the foundation of the world.
O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them."
Jesus prayed that we would be one as he is one with the Father. His desire was for us to be united in every way in him. It is his desire for us to come together to stand as one against the evils of our day and against the terror, and darkness of our day and this hour. It was never intended for us to be divided and separated by denomination's, theology, doctrine, religious tradition, and many other things. In Heaven there is a Government that is established that works as One unit, One voice, One Supreme Commander in Chief and Lord, One Judge of all, his name is above all others, Jesus! Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this. (Isaiah 9:7)
His Government shall be established on Earth as it is in Heaven. It is even now coming, and shall be fully established here as it is in Heaven. We all have a part in bringing Heaven to Earth. We all have to do our part and allow God to establish his Will and Way in us, so that this can be accomplished. He told me this week while studying that he is writing his laws upon my heart. He has put them in my mind, and speaks them to me throughout the day (Heb.10:16). I meditate in them as I have been praying; Lord, show me your ways, and teach me your paths. The ancient pathways to your Glory. You see, not everyone wants to know them, but I do. I go after them with all my heart. I want all of Him. I want all that belongs to me. I don't want to share any of it with the enemy, for its all been paid for and given to me, so why shouldn't I receive it? Why should I live a mundane lifeless existence, just because others want to. When Jesus died on that cross, he reconciled everything back to us. He gave us all access back to him, and our Father in Heaven. Yet, people don't want to believe that. They say they do, but really, they don't. They only want to believe some of it, but not all of it.
When we read the passage of scripture above we read Jesus praying to his Father, and asking him to make us one, as he and his Father are one. He goes on to pray in verse 24 that for those that God has given him would be with him where he is, so that we could behold his Glory. Wow! We can be where he is. He isn't here, he has risen! He now is seated on the right hand of his Father in Heaven, making intercession for you and me! He wants us to be with him where he is, so that we can behold his Glory. Did you know that you can't do that from here? You have to do that from there. You see he wants to show us his Glory. He is not withholding it from us. He is not holding anything back from us any longer, but we must go up there to get it. We have entered a time that he is saying to his church "Come up here"!
So, how do we do this? How can we as human beings go into that spiritual place in Heaven, our home and behold his Glory? It's easy to do; it's through the Spirit of God. When we became born again believers we were changed. We were equipped to ascend into the heavenly realms of the Kingdom and be with our Lord Jesus. I know religion will tell you no you can't do this, and if you do you are practicing witchcraft or some other mumbo jumbo occult practice, but this simply isn't true. It was this same kind of teaching from religious teachers of Jesus' time that got him crucified. Like I said before, not everyone believes it, nor do they want it, because to actually be in a place to hear from God, and see God, and be where he is takes laying down your own flesh, your own will, your own agenda, your own desires and do things his way. Most of the church does not want to. Most of the Christians don't want to pay that high of a price. Most do not want that kind of relationship with their Father. Most like things just the way they are, however the problem is God don't. Our Father wants more from us. He wants to hear from us more frequently, and see our faces. He wants to impart some of the deeper more important strategies to us for this hour, but we have to go there to get it.
Yes, he hears us when we pray. Yes, he is with us always, and he will never leave us or forsake us. All that is true, but what I'm talking about are higher ways, better strategies to fight the enemy. Walking in his paths, and seeing his glory changes you. It changes you and transforms you to be more like him. When this happens things around you change. This is how we will become one. This is how his kingdom will come, and his will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Because in this next great move of God, many are going to catch on to this, and begin to change so drastically that others will stare at them, just as the israelites did Moses when he came down from the mountain. There will be a generation of believers that will want more, operate in the more, move in and out of the Spirit right in front of us, and leave us all wondering what just happened. Don't you want to be a part of that and not just watch? Wouldn't you like to walk in heavenly places, and learn from just men made perfect? Wouldn't you like to behold Jesus face to face, and devise strategies with him to defeat your enemies?
He said that in HIM we live and move and have our being! I for one am seeking the ancient pathways. I for one have told him yes Lord, I will come. I will learn of you. I will seek Wisdom and position myself at her gates. I will enquire of the Lord, and lean my ear to hear what the Spirit of God is saying to the churches, to your Sons and your daughters in this hour. I will be as John the Beloved and lean in close to your heart to hear your heartbeat. When is the last time that you asked Jesus what was on his heart? What does he want from me today? What is he saying? He is saying to you today "Come up here; come higher so that I can have your full attention. Come so that you can rest. Come and take your seat next to me, for where I am; there you may be also." Amen~
Prophetess Melinda Geisenburg
Meditating in these scriptures this morning brings me to a place of rest. A place of peace and quiet knowing of the complete ability of the Lord to refresh and protect me. It is in HIM, that I live and move and have my being. It is in HIM that my Faith dwells. I can go anytime I want and drink from these fountains and fill up on more of him. I can eat until i'm full, and drink until i'm satisfied. There is no other God that will do this, or that can do this. There is no other savior that loves and saves, heals and delivers as my God! For there is but only one true living God who loves you very much!
Our loving Father God, Abba has and does provide all we have need of. He is providing us waters to drink from and Heavenly food to sustain us daily. I can even now hear you ask; but how do I drink from these fountains and eat from the table of our Lord? It's by the Spirit beloved. You can do this, but you will not be able to in yourself, for it is only accessed by the Spirit. He is in you, therefore you are able to. You must quiet yourself in prayer, focus on him, and then ask him to fill you. Ask him to feed you today! Ask him to take you to the quiet brooks of Life! His presence will come and overtake you, and cleanse you and fill you once again for the day.
Blessed ones, please hear me today. We are in a time now, and have been for quite a while, that we have to make that shift. We have to come to him everyday to meet with him. We have to encounter him everyday. Jesus did! We also need to have communion with our Father. He wants to sustain you. He wants to feed you! He wants to fill you up so that you are prepared for the day! He is calling to come and walk with him beside the quiet streams of living water, and to feed on the green pastures he leads you to. Allow him to move you away from the things that are holding you back. He loves you and wants you close.
Psalm 23:2 - He makes me lie down in green pastures;he leads me beside still waters.
Revelation 7:17 -For the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd. He will lead them to fountains of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
Psalm 36:8 - They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; And You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.
Psalm 46:4 - There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, The holy dwelling places of the Most High.
Psalm 65:11 - You have crowned the year with Your bounty, And Your paths drip with fatness.
Psalm 139:10 - Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
Isaiah 49:10 - They will not hunger or thirst, Nor will the scorching heat or sun strike them down; For He who has compassion on them will lead them And will guide them to springs of water.
Ezekiel 34:15 - "I will feed My flock and I will lead them to rest," declares the Lord GOD.
Did you know:
That he that dwells in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the almighty?
Did you know that you have to dwell there? We must stay in the secret place of the MOST HIGH. In his presence. Most of the time we like to run in and out. Go for a visit, and then go back when things get hard, or tough. This says that if we dwell there, we will abide under the almighty's shadow. When you're in someone's shadow, they are close beside you, so close in fact that all you see is there shadow over you.
While walking on the beach with my hubby, it was at a time in the day that as he walked beside me, right beside me his shadow over shadowed me. He is much taller than I am, naturally so i was completely enveloped in his shadow.
We can dwell in the secret place. We can dwell in his presence, and thereby be encompassed by his shadow. I believe this is figuratively because he is Light, and he is pure light, therefore light itself can not throw a shadow, but we are surrounded by him which shadows us from all harm. Perhaps his shadow is translucent like a force field. This is how I imagine it to be. For to be in his very presence we would be flooded with light and love and Glory.
Meditate today on how it would be and how it is to be in his very presence. imagine that presence on you, around you, flowing through you all through the day and night. If you read on down in this Psalm 91 in v. 9 it says that because you have made the Lord , who is your refuge, even the MOST HIGH your habitation, etc etc. The next several verses of promises. So; we must dwell there. It's where we cohabit. Where we live, where we abide. Amen?
The conditions are set on us dwelling there. So, let's practice staying in his presence. Practice dwelling and being with him throughout the day and night. Practice being with him. Soon, you will see that you are with him, that he is with you, and that really, and truly we are one!
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Holy Spirit is showing me some things regarding agreement this week...He gave me this scripture 2 Cor.13:1 "This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established".
Matthew 18:19 "Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven."
This is exactly why the Ekklesia is so important in this season and time. We together are powerful, and as we decree and declare together, a matter is established. You can pray by yourself, but you won't get the matter established, as you will need at least two.
Amos 3:3 "Can two walk together unless they agree"? and Luke 11:17 "But He knew their thoughts and said to them, "Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and a house divided against itself falls."
Likewise, the enemy knows this and he is going to make sure that he has witnesses to establish his position. This is how he gets a foothold in our lives. What are you saying? what are you establishing? As we gather together he is in our midst. As we agree together over anything it is established. This word Established here means:
The Greek lexicon:
to cause or make to stand, to place, put, set
to bid to stand by, [set up]
in the presence of others, in the midst, before judges, before members of the Sanhedrin;
to institute (as a law) permanently by enactment or agreement.
This is a judicial term: As we agree, we are saying that we are standing on the judicial decree given by our Most righteous judge over that matter. This is what we stand on, and continue to decree in the matter. This brings us into alignment with the Word for that Nation, and it holds much power, and Authority.
Intercessors we won't be able to pull down principalities over Nations without the Ekklesia acting as a Governmental authority over them through Agreement with the Words and Verdicts that Holy Spirit gives us regarding them specifically. We can pray for the Nations but as we come into Governmental agreement with the Word for that Nation those ancient spirits of darkness that have been ruling over the air in those Nations will fall, and be taken out of the way, so that the people can then have their eyes open, their ears unstopped and their hearts flooded with revelation light to come to Jesus!
**This is for those that have been given that Authority and jurisdiction through the courts and have been registered/written in Heaven according to Heb.12:23.
Prophetically: This is the season that the Lord is calling out his Ekklesia's and we are getting our prayer assignments. We are all being aligned with our specific calling and we are taking our positions. No more will the church operate as it has in the past. Now he does a new thing! He is calling us all to come together, networked together to accomplish a greater goal, the great harvest of our World. There are no more one man shows, you will now begin to see teams of people going on, twos and threes and we will begin to accomplish much much more than we have in the past as we begin to get this revelation of true Agreement!
Arise Mighty ones and Go Forth and Conquer!
Prophetess/Rev. Melinda Geisenburg
A thought for today:
Matt. 6:33 "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
When you seek first his kingdom, and his righteousness everything you need will be abundantly supplied. We always receive what our attention is focused on. Whatever you are giving attention to.
It also says "But my God shall supply all of your need according to his riches in Glory by Christ Jesus"! (Phil.4:19)
Therefore, it is in Christ and through him that we obtain our needs being met. It is through Christ Jesus that we obtain all the promises of God, and the blessings from God. Why do we think we can get them without going through him?
Also this is NOT just talking about money, but all things! We are blessed with ALL spiritual blessings in Heavenly places. Eph. 1:3
I bring this up beloved because we are to give him our full attention. He is drawing our eyes up in this hour. He wants our focus to be upon him. He will be the one, Jesus will be the one that will lead us into all blessing and righteousness. Jesus is the one that reveals where we are going and how to get there. Jesus is the way! He is the only Way! He is the Door! Jesus is the only Door and the WAY is through him (THE DOOR) to the heavenly places which is IN him! Seek him today! You will be greatly rewarded, GREATLY REWARDED!
"As he thinketh in his heart so is he;..." Proverbs 23:7a . Did you know that we do not think with our mind, we think with our heart. In another verse it says " A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks". Luke 6:45.
I think you are beginning to get the idea. And another "Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my thoughts". Psalm 139:23 For some reason, the way God created us ties our thoughts in with our heart. We clearly think with our heart, and out of our heart flows the issues of life. What comes out of the heart of man can breed life or death, and those things can defile us. We need to be careful about what we think.
How do we clean up our thinking? We purify our hearts. Jesus said that the pure in heart would see him! Matt. 5:8 " Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God". in other words, without a pure heart you can't see him. Many people ask me all the time, how do you see more in the Spirit realm? This is how you do it. You begin working on your heart. Ask yourself what is in my heart? What is coming out of my mouth? You begin by developing a heart of repentance, and asking Holy Spirit to reveal all areas in your heart that are not in proper alignment with his Word. Repent, repent, repent. Learn to love repentance. It's that prayer of repentance and brokenness before the Lord that begins to restore us. Ask him to turn that heart of stone into a heart of flesh. IF you want more of Jesus; more supernatural encounters with him, we must purify our hearts. In turn it cleans up our thinking, and from that we become more like him. His Word in us is life, and it begins to push out the old, and draw in; like a magnet the light and life of himself through the work of Holy Spirit.
God is good, and he knows right where we are, and he knows just how to reach each and everyone of us individually. Let's allow our thoughts to be of him, of his Word, his Heavenly Kingdom and soon we see ourselves becoming more and more like him!
Philippians 4:8 " 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".
The Lord whispered to me this morning "Guard your heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life!" Proverbs 4:23
I use to think that this meant to keep my heart from being hurt, or kept my heart true to God, and though it does include those things, I feel that to guard it diligently means to stand watch. Do not allow negative and vile thoughts, self talk, or images to get to your heart.
The bible also says to take into captivity all thoughts that would exalt themselves above the knowledge of God. So, we can not allow those thoughts to get to our heart. This is how we keep our heart. There is a gate to our heart, and we are the keepers of that gate.
We have gates on our ears to what we allow ourselves to hear and either take it "to heart" or reject it. We have gates on our eyes as to what we allow our eyes to see & believe or to reject it. We must wake up to the fact that we are called to be gatekeepers. But above all keep our hearts with all diligence.
Why? Life flows from the heart! Out of the heart the mouth speaks. We speak what we believe in our heart. What comes from our heart defiles a man or blesses a man. If we keep our heart to purity then what comes out will be life! Blessings and prosperity!
guard your heart today! Be a gatekeeper! You can do this! Amen!
Well I just got to write it today! I just feel the unction to say to the devil that no weapon formed against me will prosper, and in case he has not figured it out yet, no WORD of HIS will stick, find a footing, bare fruit or cause me to stumble and fall! I AM an overcomer! I will NOT! I repeat I WILL NOT be intimidated my him on any front! I am walking according to the spirit and not the flesh, and his lies will be returned on his own head!
I would caution any person, or entity to watch how they speak to me or any other daughter of the living God! Notice; I said he is a LIVING GOD! I will not cower nor will I shrink back from the assignment my Lord has given to me to accomplish and furthermore I plan on creating as much destruction of your kingdom as God sends me to do!
I decree and declare that my boundaries are about to be enlarged! and that my mountain is conquered! I command all distractions to flee and I condemn every word that has been spoken over me and to me in judgement! I will not tolerate evil encroaching upon me or my house! I command you to back up! I send forth the mighty army of Angels that has been released on my behalf right now to go forth and administrate this word! I command every evil agenda and plan to be shaken, and to fall beginning in this community I live in, and in the lives of my family! I command every weight to lift! and every sin to be exposed! I command all darkness that is trying to stay hidden to come to the light, right now in Jesus mighty name! I release the Word of God to go out and to accomplish the things it was sent forth to do!
We shall see the captives set free, and the blind to see! We shall see the lame walk, the hurting healed! We shall see miracles upon miracles and healing upon healing as the Glory of God comes forth! The Sons and Daughters of the Living God is waking and rising up and demonstrating the POWER of our Father, which is in heaven, upon this Earth! We will not fail! We have already overcome Praise God forever!! His throne is forever established in Heaven "For God is the King of all the earth; Sing praises with a skillful psalm. God reigns over the nations, God sits on His holy throne. The princes of the people have assembled themselves as the people of the God of Abraham, For the shields of the earth belong to God; He is highly exalted. Psalm.47:7-9.
Make no mistake, we walk humbly before our King, and perform powerfully those things he directs on this Earth. We do not seek to glorify ourselves and we want no praise of our own, but only Our God and King to be Glorified and exalted forever and forever! Amen!
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
The Word was in the very beginning. Everything started with the Word. The Spoken Word has always been the way anything starts, because as it states above, that all things were made by him, and without him (very important thought) nothing is made that was made. He is and was and will be the creative force behind anything and everything.
The Spoken Word of God is a powerful force. We use it to battle the enemy, to call those things that be not as though they are, to create life(raise the dead), and even end life(life and death are in the power of the tongue). This is one of the laws of the Kingdom, to learn to speak. When we are babies we are taught to speak or taught how to talk. As children of God we are taught the same thing. We are taught how to speak. We are taught the things we should or should not say. How to say things. But Kingdom talk is not the same as Earthly talk is it?
We need to be careful about how we speak and what we say because as children of light we have power in our words. These words become like seeds that we plant and they will grow and produce what was in them. Negative words produce negativity and positive words produce positive things. The Word spoken prophetically releases or activates God's will in a situation or a person's life. He will send a Prophet into a situation to bring change, to bring correction, or bring order or to bring edification, cleansing and healing. Sometimes order to God is not the same as order to us, it looks chaotic and disorderly to us, but it's all part of the master plan.
Much like a battlefield. When you are at war its ugly; but when the dust settles and the enemy has been rooted out of your life; there is beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness praise God!
So, if you find yourself in this place at the moment, take good cheer that deliverance has come, and the sun is coming up over the hill, and its going to be beautiful what he creates, and you will have joy again and praise will fill the house! Amen!
Jesus Said "Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for sopersecuted they the prophets which were before you". Matthew 5:12
This is what is on my heart today:
We are the body of Christ, all of us that call ourselves born again. Yet, we still want to bash each other and tear each other down at the very cost of causing irreparable damage. I've been called a false prophet, a Jezebel (just recently), loud, rude, unruly, unsubmissive to authority and out of order. Yet with the pain this has caused me, the greater pain is for those that say this, and their heart because God desires to do something bigger and greater in their lives.
Jesus also said that "A Prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house". Mark 6:4 This is certainly baring true in my own life at the moment. And in the verse above he says to rejoice and be exceedingly glad. for great, yes GREAT shall be my reward in heaven. Hallelujah! Jesus would only say that if the person was doing what he told them too, which is why they are being persecuted.
So I have to declare: Today; I march on. Today; I say Yes again Lord to your will and your way, not mine. You asked me Lord if I would be willing to drink from the same cup, and I said Yes! So today I make the decision to say yes again. As I march onward, and upward following you, I look around me at the carnage that has fallen, those who are unwilling to take up their cross and follow you. Those that are unwilling to submit themselves to the same scrutiny that they are holding me to. I just say, Lord reach in and pull the blinders off. Let them see Lord, that it is not I that they persecute but you. It is not I that they are saying no to, but you. Lord let them see that their is so much more for them if they will also say yes! I love them! I love them all with all of my heart; truly! My heart is breaking Father for them, its breaks for them!
Alas, you are calling me. Come! Come higher. And I cry out Lord that I can't leave them behind, but you beacon me to come. So I turn and once again focus on the cross before me. The way before me is so steep, I must continue to watch you Lord! I must continue to follow closely so I don't lose sight of you. I walk with you and cleave to you as you lead me on.

MAtthew 6:9-13 NKJV
Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.
