Home Ambiance....

I guess I didn't get it.   I've had so many people tell me over the years that my home was very peaceful and that they could feel the presence of God in my home.    I only saw the mistakes, the harsh words etc.   I have been learning to put on new glasses...to see things from Heaven's perspective and to get my attitude in line with Praise.   What a difference!

I realize now that because I was the stronger Christian I did have a great influence on my home. 
I was reading James again the other night and these verses were brought to my attention.

James 3:16 says, "Where there is jealousy and selfishness there is also disorder and every kind of evil."  Wow!  That's a huge warning! Is it any wonder that some homes have no peace in them?  If the mother or father is operating out of jealousy or selfishness then every other kind of evil is allowed in that home!  That is not what I want in my home! 

James, 3:17 says, " But wisdom from above is Pure, first of all; it is also peaceful, gentle and friendly, it is full of Compassion and produces a harvest of good deeds; It is free from prejudice (pre-judging) and hypocrisy (say one thing but do another)"

That verse is a mouthful but the other night God highlighted the peaceful part.   See,  you can't give what you don't have.   If you are operating out of jealousy then all kinds of evil and strife are allowed in your home.  Conversely, if you operate with Heaven's wisdom, by following Holy Spirit's leading and renewing your mind... then you will fill your home with peace, gentleness and friendliness.   Who wouldn't want that in their home?   It gets better!  Who doesn't want a harvest of good deeds in their family and home?  Who doesn't want appreciation and team spirit in their home?    I know I do!

So the onus is on us.  As we treasure every nudge from Holy Spirit, as we crave wisdom from His word, we are aligning ourselves with Heaven and we get the fruit of it now; peace, love, compassion, gentleness, friendliness, camaraderie and no hypocrisy.

Friends  this works..... I now have a bigger clue as to why people come to my place and say it's peaceful, why they can relax,,, why they feel it's like an oasis.   It is!  Holy Spirit  and all the angels know they are welcome here,  and they bring Heaven with them!

When you claim Heaven on earth through you.... Holy Spirit will honor that and help you deal with your stuff  so you can have heaven around you and your home. 

It is so worth the journey!  Be encouraged.  He who began a good work in you will finish it! (Phil. 1:6)

Loving Someone....

Loving someone is a very complex deal....  There are times when we get caught in a bad relationship because we don't either recognize it, we feed it with  our own expectations  or we feel trapped and unable to change the situation.


I know.   Eventually you get to the point where you realize that this person is not good for your emotional health.. You've tried to change them and it hasn't worked.  You've tried to put on a thicker skin and parts of you are dying inside from all the toxic words.

When I cried out to God for help to try to heal... God eventually moved me out of the situation after I said I'd rather be alone the rest of my life than to live like this.  Of course there were other changes that had to be made in preparation of moving but I started the ball rolling. Yeah it was tough!    We tend to become co-dependent... and we're so used to the behavior that we can even make excuses for it.

I was very lonely,,, but it was the best thing that could have happened to me!  God had me learn a bunch of positive, Bible based confessions that helped me change my expectations.  So important because if you don't change your expectations you'll reward the wrong behavior!

With God we can do All Things. (Phil 4:13) He means it.   If I did it, you can do it.   You are stronger than you know!

As you change your self talk, you change your habits, which changes your walk, which changes your destiny!  IT really does work! 

Here's some of the confessions I used when I was recovering from a 20+ year marriage breakup.    Looking back I realize now that it was the best thing that could have happened to me.  Please feel free to use  the ones that help you!

Three's a Crowd!

It's Very unfortunate that most people don't know the first thing about Soul Ties.... they have such a bearing on whether or not you are ever able to make healthy changes in your life!

You see.... A soul tie is a spiritual bond with a person that you have had sex with usually, although  parents can have soul ties with their children too.   For the purposes of this article we'll focus on soul ties created by sex because they are the most prevalent.  You might have broken up with them years ago but they can still influence you!

Some of the indications that you have a soul tie or bond are:

1.  You feel like they are watching you when you are trying to make an important decision.
2.  You are unable to make healthy changes in your lifestyle or get away from toxic relationships.
3.  They know when you are feeling something... especially strong emotions.
4. You defend your  right to stay in touch with that person,,, even if they are no good for you!
 
 Here's a good example.  You start a new relationship... but you are unable to move on.  Parts of you keep rehearsing things that have happened with your ex.     You might have broken the soul tie in prayer but if you open the door of communication again with that person then guess what?  Yes!  The soul tie is reestablished.  That's why it's so important to stay on top of this!   You can be happy and then miserable all in 5 minutes because of the other person's influence.

Now put this together with toxic emotions like anger, hate and jealousy and you have a powerful vehicle of cursing going to the unfortunate person that's trying to make changes in their life.

The best thing you can do is to limit or cut all communication with the toxic person or ex.  Even thinking or meditating on past experiences with that toxic person can reestablish the soul tie. Then you'll want to break the soul tie.   It's really  easy because Jesus paid the price!  All you have to do is ask the Lord to break the soul tie between you and the person, in Jesus' name.  Claim your freedom!  Ask the Lord to forgive you for sleeping around and you'll be free.  He wants this for you!!!!

 Also, you'll want to keep declaring that "No weapon formed against you will prosper and every tongue that has risen against you is cut down, in Jesus' name!"  (ref. Isa. 54:17) Then claim that you have the "mind of Christ" and chose to bless those that are persecuting you with their words.  "Father forgive them, they don't know what they are doing!"  (1. Cor. 2:16,  Luke 22:34)

 Then start to speak good things over yourself to counteract the curses.   Confessions like,  Thank You Lord that I have the mind of Christ, Thank You Lord that I am blessed to be a blessing! Thank You Lord that I have favor with all people,  Thank You Lord that I can't fail for winning, I can't lose for succeeding and that in all things You cause with to conquer through your power that is working so mightily in me!   Thank You Lord that  I'm aware of the enemy's schemes!  Help me to recognize when someone is cursing me so I can shut it down right away.  Thank You Lord that I choose to walk in Love.  Thank You Lord that your love is shed abroad in my heart by Holy Spirit. Thank you Lord that I have your supernatural strength and courage to make changes in my life.  Show me how as I wait on You!

I hope this helps you.   There's lots more on the internet about soul ties.   In deliverance ministry one of the first things we do is break the soul ties...  People can actually become schizophrenic  because of the other person's influence.

Remember, Three's a crowd!  Get rid of all the influence from the toxic person (ex)... You'll be much happier for it!

Big hugs and blessings!

Religious Spirit

Image result for religious spirit

I was at the garage minding my own business when another driver asked about spiritual stuff.  I mentioned a few things I had seen and another fellow joined the conversation and said that I was full of demons. Bad thing to say to this lady!

I asked him how he knew that? He replied that "Healing has passed away and that if I was seeing demons on people then I was demonized."   I was stunned!  How could you ever think that?  That's ignorance gone to seed!

So the first thing I told him was that Healing was in the Old Testament and the new Testament and that the disciples were commanded to go heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons and cleanse the lepers in Matthew 10:8, long before Holy Spirit was given. (ref. Isa. 53:5, 1Pet.2:24)

As for being demonized  I doubt it as "a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand."  Jesus's own words!(Matt. 12:25)

Also, I explained to him how I saw stuff (occasionally) before I got saved but it was always demonic and it freaked me out.  I didn't want to see!  Fast forward to me becoming a Christian and getting filled with Holy Spirit inside of me and its a brand new world! Holy Spirit has helped me to see more stuff and guided me into greater truths so I can help more people.

In addition,  it's a fact that some psychics can see, just like seer gifted Christians can see in the spirit realm... The BIG difference is your source.  Is God guiding you or satan/lucifer/familiar spirit guiding you? That's the right question to ask!

So unfortunately this supposed Christian has believed a lot of junk and not read his Bible.   Like so many others with a religious spirit he has become totally ineffective at advancing the kingdom of God.  Imagine he wouldn't even vote!  Completely giving up on his right to influence society in a Godly way.

The icing on the cake was that he kept asking me who the first angel was... Like who cares?  What are you doing with your life to make a difference for God?  That's what really matters!

I was so not impressed with this fellow!   I told him, "Right...you sit here, in your little bubble waiting for the rapture and you are totally ineffective at advancing the Kingdom of God."  He got really upset at that.  So I asked him,  When was the last time you prayed for somebody and they got healed?  When was the last time you  introduced someone to Jesus.  When was the last time you prayed and demons fled?

The poor fellow that listened to us didn't know what to think!  When I told him about certain people not being allowed on my bus because of the demons in them  he really got interested.  Then I told him about the lady that found me after 3 or 4 weeks and she was so excited because her husband had finally been properly diagnosed after I prayed and was out of the  hospital feeling so much better.

So I know which bus the listening fellow wants to be on!  LOL....   As for the other guy.... what a waste.

Life is too short. I want to make a difference every day for the Lord.   Like I've said before  my usual prayer is, "Lord here I am. Please use me today!"

Anyhow... Thanks for reading... I needed to vent a bit, LOL.  May you have courage to pray that kind of prayer and follow Holy Spirit's nudges... It's definitely a life worth living!

Angelic Court

Hi There....   Just a quick note.   I posted on my blog about going to the Angelic Court.... I was then asked several times to lead a group in going there..

I really didn't have peace to do that so I declined....  I felt bad but had to obey the Lord... Turns out that Ian taught about the Courts and he said the first thing to do is to cleanse your imagination.

To do that we say Jesus, Jesus... and wait till we sense Holy Spirit .  Then we tell the Lord that we've seen this and don't want it in our memory banks.  Then we Ask the Lord to forgive us  (don't give the devil a man to fight with),  and then ask the Lord to cleanse our imaginations.   He might show you a picture about this.

Then we step back physically and release the glory/victory that we have received. Pic by picture this is how it's done.  Trust me... so many times I would be seeking the Lord and all this junk would come up... That's because the devil doesn't want you receiving anything from Heaven!  So agree with God and cleanse your imagination..... And I bet Holy Spirit will show you what not to watch in the future! LOl.

Finally, remember it's all done by faith.   We do it by faith enough and then God gives us the reality of what we are doing.  Hallelujah!  Takes time for some of us to have our eyes opened  and that's okay!  I was a logical thinker too!

You can look up some great teaching about the mobile court on youtube too. 

Have a great day!

Tool Box Faith!

Hi again.    I was thinking about how much I missed my tools from back home since I moved.   Seems like I'm always needing another tool.   The hardware stores love me I'm sure!

Anyhow... There's a good analogy there.  The Bible is a tool box full of tools and each promise is a tool.   Now you can have that tool box in your garage for years and not know how to use those tools or even know what they are called, right?  Right!  Just ask  around...

In the same way we have tons of tools in the word of God but we don't know what they are or what they can do for us!   It isn't until we have a need and someone comes to help us that we realize what we have in our tool box!  

And I can also tell you that when I tried to learn how to use some of the tools in the garage I made a lot of mistakes. I bet you can relate to that too!

It's the same with the word of God!  We have all these wonderful promises (tools) at our disposal, but if we don't take the time to learn about these promises and what they can do for us we'll never get good at using them and we'll never get the jobs done! 

Tell you what!  I want to learn how to use all the tools in my tool box!  I want to be comfortable in anyone's garage!  I want to be able to recognize an angle grinder or a tap and die set because you'll never know when you might run into a situation where you need to know how to use them!

I especially want to know how to use a hammer  because God says his word is like a fire and a hammer that smashes the rocks into pieces!  Yeah God!   (ref. Jer. 23:29)

I want to know how to use various screw drivers, vice grips etc., etc.,  You get my point?

For the men.... pretend it's the kitchen tools that you need to learn how to use!  Same difference. 

God wants us proficient as using all his promises and tools!

Anyhow... I'm rambling, LOL

Have a great day!

Real Faith?

God is no respecter of persons.(Acts 10:34)  That means you and I are not favorites.  He does say however, that the just shall live by his/her faith.   (Rom. 1:17)
You say, "I have faith,"....  Well then tell me your recent testimonies!  Not as easy eh?

The truth is that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. (Rom. 10:17)   If we want faith we need to get a hold of the word of God, either by hearing it preached by anointed people or by reading it.  Then when a promise or verse hits our spirit we need to write that down and make a note of it.

Then as we start to meditate on it and speak it over and over we get revelation on it and it becomes a rhema word to us.   Then the next step is to decree that word over ourselves and our situations.   This is when our faith becomes active.   You see faith that can't be tested can't be trusted.  As you get tested your faith will become stronger and you'll see more victories.  Then the best part is you'll be able to pray for others and they'll get victories too!

It's the same for each one of us.  There are no short cuts.    I have results because for  over 20 years I spent  time speaking the promises of God over myself and my situations.   There is so much truth to the saying, "If you want a change you must make a change!"  

So you want victory?  Do the work....  It's that simple. 

God has no favorites.... He's promised to reward the people that diligently seek him and since he is His word and he's the living word  your best life is to seek Him! (Heb. 11:6, John 1:1)

Just think, after twenty years of your tv shows where will you be?  Or after 20 years of your hobby where will you be?  Where do you want to be?  That's what changed me.  I really, really wanted to make a difference.  I liked it when someone I knew used to say that all hell went on red alert when I woke up in the morning.    The choice is up to you.... I have lots of good confessions in this blog that will help you get started.   And Holy Spirit will highlight some good faith filled preachers for you if you ask.

Have a great day knowing how much you are loved by an amazing God!
Big Hugs,
Brenda Gale Thompson
