In a vision I saw the numbers ‘2:3’ so I looked up,
furthermore, if you call out to insight
and lift your voice to understanding,
So I am calling out to insight & I am speaking out to understanding, God, I love Your Word!
I had a proceeding vision of a ‘pram’.
I looked up ‘pram’, (1) someone carrying the promise of God & (2) Faith (that which carries the promise through to manifestation)
Romans 4:20, 21
He did not waver in unbelief at Gods promise but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, because he was fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.
I need only believe! Be fully convinced that what God has promised He is also able to perform!
And so, after waiting patiently, Abraham obtained the promise.
& so I have it!
God gives me everything.
I need only believe that what I ask for He will give me & that’s how I will have it!
Have faith (in)God!
Have faith (of) God!
(3) (beginning of Paul’s ministry ) Acts 13:9
Then Saul — also called Paul — filled with the Holy Spirit, stared straight at the sorcerer
Paul’s name was changed here.
Here Paul calls out a devil in this sorcerer & prophesies that he will be blinded for a while (Similar to what happened to Paul himself only it was a mist & darkness that fell on the sorcerer & it was a light that flashed around Paul: Acts 13:11
Now, look! The Lords hand is against you. You are going to be blind, and will not see the sun for a time. Suddenly a mist and darkness fell on him, and he went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand.
Acts 22:6,7As I was traveling and near Damascus, about noon an intense light from heaven suddenly flashed around me.
I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me, Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?
The sorcerer was trying to lead the proconsul Sergius Paulus away from Paul who was ministering faith in Jesus. Acts 13:8
But Elymas the sorcerer (this is the meaning of his name) opposed them and tried to turn the proconsul away from the faith.
I feel as though the name changing thing also had something to do with the name of the proconsul person whom Paul (before called Saul) was witnessing to & I feel that Paul was coming alongside of Sergius Paulus becoming like him as Jesus tells us to do.
Also Paul’s ministry is going from the Jews to the Gentiles.
Paul’s ministry is to the Gentiles.
Praise God for Paul!
Paul was the Roman version of the Jewish name Saul.
He was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man. This man summoned Barnabas and Saul and desired to hear Gods message.
When the proconsul saw what happened to the sorcerer he believed: Acts 13:12 Then the proconsul, seeing what happened, believed and was astonished at the teaching about the Lord.
(4) Empty promises (empty pram)
The Lord said:
Because these people approach Me with their mouths
to honor Me with lip- service —
yet their hearts are far from Me,
and their worship consists of man- made rules
learned by rote —
These people honor Me with their lips,
but their heart is far from Me.
I never want to be this: Speaking about, even singing aboutHim, but my heart being far from Him, just speaking & singing by rote.
But I want to always be seeing & speaking the new thing that He is doing & singing the new song that He is singing.
Help me Jesus here in this to remain afresh in You.
Alert me Holy Spirit always to have ears to hear God’s heart.
Thank You Holy Spirit. I cannot do anything without You.
I cry here at my need.
To depend on Him.
To know His greatest love for me.
I desire to have all of the love God has for me.
(5) Expecting something to be birthed (promise/Church/ministry)
1 Samuel 1:18
May your servant find favor with you, she replied. Then Hannah went on her way; she ate and no longer looked despondent.
(Hannah had spoken to Eli the priest who blessed her saying 1 Samuel 1:17
Eli responded, Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant the petition youve requested from Him.
I just have to go to true priest peeps, true ministers of His Word.
I just have to hang with true believers.
I just have to be a true priest peep, a true minister of His Word.
I just have to hang with Jesus Himself.
I just have to hang with Holy Spirit.
Thank You Father for Your eternal plan.
& I looked up Psalms 2:3
Let us tear off their chains
and free ourselves from their restraints.
Which led me to Isaiah 58:6-7
Isnt the fast I choose:
To break the chains of wickedness,
to untie the ropes of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free,
and to tear off every yoke?
7 Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
to bring the poor and homeless into your house,
to clothe the naked when you see him,
and not to ignore your own flesh and blood?
Ha ha I end up here again to the true fast : un chaining yokes of oppression, feeding the poor, taking in the homeless.
This is the Way thank You Jesus.
This is the Way for me.
Your Word over me for nations. Humble.
Remaining in Jesus.
Do not be forceful.
Only let Him lead me.
He will turn hearts around me.
Pray every step.
It’s not what I do but what He can do in me.
To change nations.
Peace & redemption first within my family.
Tony is my head & Jesus is Tony’s head.
