Window of Blessings Rain Down on ME!


Hi Everybody! 🙂 I just wanted to post this awesome song by Canton Jones  called “Window”.  I believe in this year of Double perfection, Double Grace, Double Harvest and Double for your Trouble, that it’s time to shout out to the Heavens that the Windows of blessings are open over your head. That’s right everybody! Praise the Lord for these open Doors that no man can shut and the open windows of blessings going to rain all over you. For some of you, you may have been going through tough times, in fact…really really difficult times that you maybe wondering when will this time of trouble end for you and your household. Just remember that even in those times of despair, trouble is not your portion in life. Jeremiah 29:11 is your portion in life. Trouble will only last a season, and then once you have persevered, pushed through and fought the good fight, blessings will come your way for every tear shed, for every hour you were left in darkness. Trust me, been in that place before especially last year, and let me tell you, God is faithful to those that are faithful to Him. FAITH is the Key that Unlocks every door and window in your life.  One principle that I must state is important to reiterate time and time again is the principle of   Seed —> Time —>Harvest. Seed into your breakthrough in order to obtain your Harvest. Farmers expect to yield a harvest after they have done the work to sow seed, cultivate the land and expect to yield a crop for their harvest so ask yourself, what seeds have you planted in anticipation for your Harvest? Bring your seed to the Lord’s store house and see it double in this year. Seed with revelation rather than by mere ritual.  Malachi 3:10

Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.

My encouragement to you today is to never give up on God no matter what you go through. His Will will always be to Prosper you and never to Harm you and to give you a bright future (Jeremiah 29:11). The most important thing about an open Window, is recognizing the timing of when these windows of opportunity open for you. Do not be stuck is self-pity land during the timing when Doors open and windows open over your life. You just might miss them if you remain self-absorbed by your own problems. Focus on what’s ahead of you, that is what your eyes in the front of your head are for. There is no reason for you to focus on what’s behind you since the past is already past. Look towards the future. Live your life expecting the best that is yet to come.  Be Encouraged and know that God will never Forsake you even in your darkest hours and moments in your life. He is there with you every step of the way….so start rejoicing now and start praising Him now because I prophesy and declare that the Windows this year are WIDE OPEN for His people. Look out and hold onto your blessings one by one and keep your faith alive and keep expecting. Your season of Lack is over…it’s time to take dominion! Speak into the atmosphere and declare what it is you want to see. God Bless you Everybody and enjoy this Song. Be encouraged! Love y’all! 😀

Tapping into Divine Wisdom: The Reverential Fear of God


For the past few days I’ve been feeling the need to speak on the reverential fear of the the Lord. We must understand that God is a Holy God. We are all unworthy to come before His presence because of how Holy He Truly is, but through Jesus we are able to commune with the Almighty one. No one can come to the Father except through the Son. This is how HOLY God is but I don’t believe that people have fully grasped what it means to go before a Holy God. Ask yourself what does it mean to be in the Presence of a HOLY God?

John 14:6
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

The Holiness of God is such that it is sooo powerful that our human container (our physical bodies) can’t handle the Holiness of God. It is so powerful that it can crush us and that is why when we speak of “Seeking His Face” we have to go from strength to strength to handle The Holiness of God as we learn to increase from Faith to Faith to see God working in our lives. It takes a measure of Faith for us to see what I would term “glimpses of God” because we cannot handle the fullness of God’s Glory.

So how do we learn to Revere a God that is so Holy?

Let me just say that the fear of God that I speak of isn’t some unhealthy fear that causes us to be bound up and paralyzed from doing or acting on something. By all means learn to take initiatives to step out and do things that you’ve never done before. That is what Faith is about! The fear of God that I speak of is in respect to the relationship between having UNDERSTANDING with WISDOM to do the RIGHT THING and LIVE the RIGHT WAY.

It says in the Word that:

Psalm 111:10
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.

The Fear of God provides us with the Benefits of Wisdom and Understanding to do His Will in our lives, but how many of us Fear God enough to obey Him when He tells us to do something? We have the free will factor to choose between doing things GOD’s way or doing things OUR way which is foolishness to God.

Isaiah 55:8
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD.

Our levels of wisdom are limited and that is why we must learn to Fear GOD because HE is our PROVIDER of Wisdom that leads us to do things with purpose, direction, and with a promise that assures that our obedience in Him will lead to prosperity according to the Jeremiah 29:11 promise. However, we as people can be hard headed and become ignorant and arrogant and do things that may seem right to us at the time, but later reap the repercussions of our disobedience.

There are benefits to reverencing our Lord as there are repercussions to the lack of Fear in God which I will outline here:

THE BENEFITS OF FEARING GOD:

1.) Those who Fear God will cause others to believe in God.

1 Samuel 12:14
If you fear the LORD and serve Him and obey His voice, and do not rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then both you and the king who reigns over you will continue following the LORD your God.

2.) Those who Fear God will be rescued from their enemies schemes.

2 Kings 17:39
But the LORD your God you shall fear; and He will deliver you from the hand of all your enemies.”

3.) Those who Fear God will be safe and remain safe.

Proverbs 29:25
The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in the LORD shall be safe.

4.) The Fear of God keeps people from continuing to SIN.

Job 28:27- 28

27 Then He saw wisdom[a] and declared it;He prepared it, indeed, He searched it out.
28 And to man He said,‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,
And to depart from evil is understanding.

5.) The Fear of God is Pure and is filled with Truth.

Psalm 19:9
The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

6.) Those who Fear God will be revealed prophetic revelations and will be revealed of His promises in their lives.

Psalm 25:14
The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant.

7.) Those who Fear God are blessed when they follow by Faith and walk in His Word in OBEDIENCE.

Psalm 128:1
[ Blessings of Those Who Fear the LORD ] A Song of Ascents. Blessed is every one who fears the LORD, Who walks in His ways.

8.) Those who Fear God receive divine wisdom and knowledge when they take heed to God’s instructions by following His Word and Trusting in Him.

Proverbs 1:7
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.

9.) The Fear of God prolongs a persons Life.

Proverbs 10:27
The fear of the LORD prolongs days, But the years of the wicked will be shortened.

Proverbs 14:27
The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, To turn one away from the snares of death.

10.) Those that Fear God walk Humbly and are Honored in their Humility and Wisdom.

Proverbs 15:33
The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom, And before honor is humility.

11.) The Fear of God provides safety and confidence because you know in whom you Believe.

Proverbs 14:26
In the fear of the LORD there is strong confidence, And His children will have a place of refuge.

12.) Those that Fear God Obey His Voice and His Word.

Haggai 1:12
[ The People’s Obedience ] Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of the LORD their God, and the words of Haggai the prophet, as the LORD their God had sent him; and the people feared the presence of the LORD.

13.) A Church that Fears God PROSPERS!

Acts 9:31
[ The Church Prospers ] Then the churches throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria had peace and were edified. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, they were multiplied.

When you read these benefits, it makes you wonder why the current state of the world is in chaos and confusion. It is because people have not learned to FEAR GOD and follow HIS WORD. When a nation Fears God, the people of that Nation are blessed and this goes vice versa, when a Nation does NOT Fear GOD, the People suffer.

The consequences of not Fearing God is like asking for a removal of His Jeremiah 29:11 promise of Blessing on your life. This is quite serious folks. If people don’t learn to Fear God in the sense of seriously BELIEVING HIS WORD, we liken ourselves to SAUL’s attitude which was one of REBELLION (the same level of sin as witchcraft). We all know what happened to Saul right? The Spirit of GOD LEFT SAUL and entered into DAVID who was a man of God who reverenced the LORD enough to take out a GOLIATH when no one else would.

1 Samuel 18:12
Now Saul was afraid of David, because the LORD was with him, but had departed from Saul.

Saul ended up demonized and was going insane. This is what happens when the presence of God leaves our lives. We are left vulnerable when we continue to remain in disobedience, faithless, and rebellious to God’s Word in our Lives. Therefore, Fearing God, the Giver of all blessings, all wisdom, all knowledge and power is the only way we are assured of Divine preservation and prosperity.

We must understand that those that DO NOT FEAR GOD are: 

1.) Rebellious.

1 Samuel 15: 23-25

23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft,
And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.
Because you have rejected the word of the Lord,
He also has rejected you from being king.

24 Then Saul said to Samuel, “I have sinned, for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord and your words, because I feared the people and obeyed their voice. 25 Now therefore, please pardon my sin, and return with me, that I may worship the Lord.”

2.) Cursed.

1 Samuel 16:14
[ A Distressing Spirit Troubles Saul ] But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and a distressing spirit from the LORD troubled him.

Deuteronomy 28:15 -19

15 “But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you:

16 “Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the country.

17 “Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.

18 “Cursed shall be the fruit of your body and the produce of your land, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.

19 “Cursed shall you be when you come in, and cursed shall you be when you go out.

[Please read the rest of the curses in this chapter of Deuteronomy 28:20-68 for there is a huge list, but I’m sure you get the point]

3.) Faithless, Sinful and always troubled.

Proverbs 15:16
Better is a little with the fear of the LORD, Than great treasure with trouble.

4.) They that lack the Fear of God Call forth Judgment in their Lives.

Malachi 3:5
And I will come near you for judgment; I will be a swift witness Against sorcerers, Against adulterers, Against perjurers, Against those who exploit wage earners and widows and orphans, And against those who turn away an alien— Because they do not fear Me,” Says the LORD of hosts.

5.)  They are full of PRIDE, they are Liars and are children of DISOBEDIENCE.

1 John 2:4
He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

Colossians 3:6
Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience

Ephesians 5:6
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.

I know that this post is very different from many of my earlier posts because I feel so strongly on this subject at this time that I feel led to touch on this touchy subject. It may not be something someone wants to read, but it has to be said. Folks, many of the curses I read in Deuteronomy 28 are actually going on right now in certain countries right now if you analyze them. What’s also interesting about this chapter is that it first lists the blessings, but the curses took a whole chunk of that chapter because let me tell you that there is a heavy price to pay in the lack of Fearing God. I’m not trying to be scary here but I feel that this needs to be addressed. For each time we try to take God out of our lives, curses keep entering our lives…we open the doors for such things to happen. God doesn’t want to see people suffer, that’s why His will is for all to Have LIFE and have it more ABUNDANTLY!

John 10:10
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

We can only have abundant life when we Fear the ONE who GIVES LIFE!

Today reflect on where you are in your relationship with God. Ask yourself, do  you sincerely FEAR GOD? Are there areas where your conscience is cold to the truth of what you ought to be doing? Do you value the Holiness of God? IF so, how? If Not, why?

Ask yourselves these questions and understand that the Fear of the LORD is the beginning of ALL wisdom so if people are praying for Wisdom in this life, you can’t have wisdom without the Fear of God. The Fear of God is connected to Wisdom because He is the One who provides for it. It goes hand in hand in God’s Hand. Be wise and learn to reverence the Lord your God so that He can say that I will be Your God and You will be my People.

To finish off, I have a Lovely Song that I was actually listening to the whole time I was writing up this post. It’s by Byron Cage and the song is called Royalty. Trust me when I say this Song will bless your heart. Enjoy it and may it minister to you. GOD Bless you everybody!

My tabernacle also shall be with them; indeed I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

The Latter Rain will be Greater – Receiving God’s Answer


Day 5 of 21 Day Daniel Fast –  Today’s meditation is from the Book of Joel about acknowledging when your desert/wilderness season is over and when you must prepare to receive the Latter rain of Blessings in your life from the Lord. For me last year was amazing but I did have a few desert situations where I was wondering “when will I receive a greater blessing?” because I believe everybody has a PROSPERITY PORTION according to the Jeremiah 29:11 Promise from the Lord.

When Reading the book of Joel, I received a great encouragement in that when the people Fasted and prayed in their desert season, God opened up the heavens for DIVINE rain of Blessings on the Land that had suffered a severe drought. In this Daniel Fast, although we are fighting against Principalities and Powers and Spiritual Wickedness in the High places, let us not forget why we are fighting in the Spirit in the First place. We want the ENEMIES OF GOD TO PAY BACK EVERYTHING THEY STOLE FROM US WITH INTEREST!!!!

I believe that there will be a rise of Calebs and Joshuas in this year of DIVINE GOVERNMENT who will lead people into their promised land. As we pray and Fast, we must seek God’s face to increase our spiritual discernment to point out the Calebs and Joshuas in our lives. No more of this 40 year desert experience where the people of Israel wondered about like lost lambs with no home based on the discouragement of the report of the 10 spies who were sent out to the land of Canaan to spy over the land that the Lord had promised to them in your season (Numbers 13:27-31). Just because there were squatters (Numbers 13:27-29) in the land doesn’t mean that the land belonged to them. Fight for what is yours and be like Caleb and Joshua who kicked them out of the Land. Ignore the Naysayers during your Fast for breakthrough and be like Caleb and Joshua who were able to enter into the promised land because of their level of Faith (Numbers 14:24; Numbers 14:30; Numbers 26:65; Numbers 32:12).

You will receive your promise when you develop a fighting spirit to take back what the enemy has tried to steal from you, be it your home, your health, your finances, your children, your mind, your peace, whatever it is, Fight in the Spirit to obtain Victory in the Natural. You don’t have to accept the current status quo, your current circumstances and your current situations if they don’t represent the Jeremiah 29:11 promise. When you fight, don’t use your own might and power, for you will lose if you do. Seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit, for what you war in the Spirit can only be fought by the Holy Spirit, so Fight with God on your side. Remember, you can only win with God on your side so always seek strategies of engaging a spiritual battle with Divine wisdom that comes from the Almighty God.

Zechariah 4:6
So he answered and said to me: “ This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘ Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the LORD of hosts

I believe that there will be people who will rise up and take possession of their promises (which are your blessings of prosperity) that the Lord has prepared for them because they believe in the Word of the Lord over their circumstances. Whose report will you believe? I will believe in the Report of the Lord. Don’t look at the desert that you are in right now and think of the Latter RAIN that God wants to pour into your life.

Mark 9:23
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

Believe for: The Rain of Blessings, the Latter Rain, the Overflow and the Gifts of the HOLY SPIRIT. I’m looking out for my Rainy season and Praying for the Overflow. What are you Praying for??? Do you want the latter Rain??? Ask yourselves these questions in your meditations.

So in reading the book of Numbers and the book of Joel, I thought to myself, I want to be like a Caleb and Joshua who has a heart to pursue and believe for the blessings that belong to me, a Child of God. We have to learn to walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).  Don’t you want to receive what God already has prepared for you???? I know for sure I do, but that means I have to increase my level of FAITH in order to obtain what God has promised to me. I have no idea how I will receive my promises or by what means, but I’m seeking God’s face for His answer.

We must seek to increase our level of Faith in order to receive according to the measure of that Faith when the Lord prepares us for the great Outpouring for the overflow. Are you ready to increase your level of Faith during your Spiritual Warfare Fast? The Promises of God need those with a Caleb type spirit and level of Faith who will fight for the Promise instead of those that listened to the Naysayers who were intimidated by the squatters robbing them from Gods promise in their lives. Are you willing to fight in your prayer life for your promises? I want to and I will start by ignoring the negative and will call forth things that are not as though they were (Romans 4:17).

Maintain the FOCUS and fix your eyes on Jesus Christ, Holy God, Our Counselor, Prince of Peace and the Author and Finisher of your Faith (Hebrews 12:2).

Read Joel 2:12-32 and focus on the highlighted verses.

Joel 2:12-32 (New International Version)

Rend Your Heart

12 “Even now,” declares the LORD, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” 13 Rend your heart and not your garments.Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate,slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. 14 Who knows? He may turn and have pity and leave behind a blessing– grain offerings and drink offerings for the LORD your God. 15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, declare a holy fast, call a sacred assembly. 16 Gather the people, consecrate the assembly; bring together the elders, gather the children, those nursing at the breast. Let the bridegroom leave his room and the bride her chamber. 17 Let the priests, who minister before the LORD, weep between the temple porch and the altar. Let them say, “Spare your people, O LORD. Do not make your inheritance an object of scorn, a byword among the nations. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?’ “

The LORD’s Answer

18 Then the LORD will be jealous for his land and take pity on his people. 19 The LORD will reply to them: “I am sending you grain, new wine and oil, enough to satisfy you fully; never again will I make you an object of scorn to the nations. 20 “I will drive the northern army far from you, pushing it into a parched and barren land, with its front columns going into the eastern sea and those in the rear into the western sea. And its stench will go up; its smell will rise.” Surely he has done great things. 21 Be not afraid, O land; be glad and rejoice. Surely the LORD has done great things. 22 Be not afraid, O wild animals, for the open pastures are becoming green. The trees are bearing their fruit; the fig tree and the vine yield their riches. 23 Be glad, O people of Zion, rejoice in the LORD your God, for he has given you the autumn rains in righteousness. He sends you abundant showers,both autumn and spring rains,as before. 24 The threshing floors will be filled with grain; the vats will overflow with new wine and oil. 25 “I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten– the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm– my great army that I sent among you. 26 You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the LORD your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed. 27 Then you will know that I am in Israel, that I am the LORD your God, and that there is no other; never again will my people be shamed.

The Day of the LORD

28 “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. 29 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. 30 I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 31 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. 32 And everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the LORD has said, among the survivors whom the LORD calls.

To end my meditation I have an awesome song by Israel Houghton and New Breed called “Your Latter will be Greater”. I hope it blesses you today. Be encouraged and remember that God is with you in every season of your life. Seek for the latter Rain in your Life.

Scriptures to Meditate

Joel 2:23 (NKJV)

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD! We have blessed you from the house of the LORD.
