Arise and Shine

       In the midst of all of this “pus extraction“ I saw a picture of people stuck-in-place covered in hardened lava.  All of a sudden beams of light started piercing through the rock from the inside out.  And I heard, “Arise [from spiritual depression to a new life], shine [be radiant with the glory and brilliance of the Lord]; for your light has come, And the glory and brilliance of the Lord has risen upon you. For in fact, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness will cover the peoples; But the Lord will rise upon you [Jerusalem] And His glory and brilliance will be seen on you.” (Isaiah 60:1-2, AMP) This year of extraction also includes our being extracted from captivity with all the bells and whistles God installed!  (Third excerpt from Melissa Gabler’s article “A Drawing Salve Kind of Season”)



Living Stones

As the people of God assemble today, may each person realize the importance of, and see the value of their place as, a lively stone in the household of God. May they fit appropriately into the wall where the Lord God has set them and augment the local work and the other lively stones they have been set with.  “Present yourselves as building stones for the construction of a sanctuary vibrant with life, in which you’ll serve as holy priests offering Christ-approved lives up to God.” (1Pe.2:5, Msg)

When a Lucid Moment Breaks Through

Have you ever had one of those lucid moments? Has there been a time when, after wrestling with a dilemma, suddenly, truth broke through all the fog and layers covering the answer? When the Prodigal son was sitting in the pig pen, eating food thrown to the pigs, Lk.15:17 says, “he came to himself… and said, ‘I will arise and go to my father.’” Probably the smartest thing he ever did. Sometimes we make ourselves a most uncomfortable bed to lay in. But it can be made right. (Ps.119:59, NIRV) ”I have thought about the way I live. And I have decided to follow your covenant laws.” Let those lucid moments break through. We are praying you discover daily that you are coming to yourself and following God’s redeeming Word.

Pus Extraction

The reason this year has been so nasty so far is because 2017 is the year of pus extraction.  That stuff has to come out! You don’t want infection staying in and causing possible irreversible harm to the whole body.  It must be drawn out and extracted.  The following is a list of items (“pus”) being extracted that are kicking and screaming on their way out. GOVERNMENT LEADERS with dark roots: Traitors, Tyrants, Secret Societies, Slave Masters.  Those which have held manipulative sway in the high courts of this land have been targeted by the King Himself.  WITCHES are being brought to the light so their tentacles will be cut off of this nation and THE CHURCH.  SOCIETY’S BANDAIDS: “anything goes” because I’m a victim.  That bandage is being publicly ripped off.  RELIGIOUS IDEALS: man-made, manipulative ideology that has held influence in the man-made “high positions” of the church are being exposed.  (Second excerpt from Melissa Gabler’s article “A Drawing Salve Kind of Season”)


Broken Arm Healed

CT Carleton—“One of our neighbors was at our house one day when our oldest boy fell out of the barn and bent his harm between the wrist and the elbow. She asked if I wasn’t going to take him to the doctor and I told her that I wasn’t. It’s a shame, she said, you just have one boy and you let his arm stay like that. I told her that God made it straight the first time, surely he can straighten it now. She came back the next morning while I was at the barn and I saw her call Joe to her and examine both of his arms and the one that was hurt was just as good as it ever had been. She didn’t say any more about it. Praise God for his greatness.  (From Kathy’s great grandfather’s booklet “Experiences Under Tests and Trials”, C.T. Carleton)


A Drawing Salve Kind of Season

First, I would like to warn you of the graphic nature of this article.  It may cause unpleasant pictures in your head while reading.  So, read at your own risk!
What has the beginning of this year been about? We are in a Drawing Salve season. The reason drawing salve works is that it softens the skin around the splinter, or whatever else is in there, and this then enables the body to more easily eject the foreign object.  This is something that the body does naturally anyway, but by moisturizing the area and using anti-inflammatory agents you simply encourage this to work more quickly before the wound closes over it. At the same time it can encourage blood flow which will also help to create pus and as the pus is ejected from the body so too will the foreign object. (healthguidance,org) That stuff has to come out! This year of extraction also includes our being extracted from captivity with all the bells and whistles God installed!  (First excerpt from Melissa Gabler’s article “A Drawing Salve Kind of Season”)
