Tame Your Braino- Healing for The Mind & Heart

Prophetic Word: “Lips Full of Fire!” By Missy Hood September 2014


Isaiah's_Lips_Anointed_with_Fire_
Isaiah 6:7
6Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs. 7He touched my mouth with it and said, “Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away and your sin is forgiven.”

The Lord has been showing me that the Fire of God is brewing in our eyes/hearts/Lips of those Warriors and that he is preparing the bride to come up to a place that we’ve never known before!

The Lord says that the enemies of America only THOUGHT they have seen My rage- but just like My spirit was aroused when they attacked Pearl Harbor so shall my Bride
Arise if the enemy dares to strike my children. The Lord says that the enemy has only seen a portion of His power as the “Sleeping Giant” has been awakened for these final hours.

The Lord says that His warriors have been positioned and He has placed a FIERCENESS in their eyes/hearts like never before. That if the enemy wants again to challenge God’s authority he will soon
Find that God has NOW placed that SAME authority into the hearts/minds/will/emotions of His “chosen.” That God’s fire will fall from their mouths as they release the winds of heaven into the earth
Against the onslaughts of the enemy or his parishioners so that ALL would KNOW who the Son of Man is/was and IS TO COME!

The Lion, the bear and the lamb are STILL On the throne of heaven- GEAR YOURSELVES UP WARRIORS!!!!!!!!!!!! AND KNOW THAT I AM YOUR KING and I HAVEN’T FALLEN OFF MY THRONE!
MY SCEPTOR IS UP READY TO STRIKE UPON THE COMMANDS THAT I PLACE UPON YOUR LIPS! Who is ISIS but a mere speck in my minds eye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SO SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS!

Love in Christ

Prophetic Word from Missy Hood -September 2014


God has been showing me the “Worshipping Warrior/David” That we have NOW become people after God’s own heart. Going into barren lands where people started to follow after other Gods/ASHERSHAH POLES when they once knew the true and living God. That the Lord ALLOWED this barrenness to move those hearts BACK to Himself, but not all will turn back to Him….
He is using the black community A LOT during this season (in worship) because there was a time where worship was all they had as they worked the fields (slavery) and then until /during/after the civil rights era.
SO WORSHIP has been engrained into their linage/hearts- it’s a spiritual gift.
The white church has had tremendous problems breaking out of religion and in dealing with other cultures because of our hang ups in being able to “Get real.” Not only with ourselves but with others in relationship which has hindered our own intimacy with Christ.
Note: This word is NOT “pro black, or white, or Hispanic” its PRO GOD- AND PRO HIS HEART and our learning to step into new place of loving each other again Flaws and all. Jesus doesn’t see skin color and nor should we. LOVE is color blind. As Christians of ALL races we ALL are having to learn to follow the spirit to determine who our REAL brothers/sisters in Christ are.

Jesus said in the end times we would know HIS PEOPLE BY THEIR LOVE.

I had a dream the other night of someone around me who keeps trying to undermine me and all the women around this person had cut all their hair off. The hair of a woman is her “glory.”

I asked the Lord what that meant and He said that “His glory has departed from MANY MANY vessels now (Causing the barrenness)” and this makes those vessel prey to the darkness that is overcoming the earth so God’s people are REALLY going to have to be VERY attentive to listen to the Lord as to WHO they allow into their sphere of friendship/influence. Some will try to come in as wolves in sheep’s clothing but GOD will expose them.

OUR JOB: TO KEEP WORSHIPPING OUR WAY UP IN THE SPIRIT! AND TO KEEP WARRING TO KEEP US MOVING FORWARD!
If you don’t have a good praise tape GET ONE! If you listen to praise/worship it will keep your spirit man UP HIGH in the spirit above all the warfare so that YOU CAN HEAR THE LORD to know the way in which you are to walk!

BE WISE- KEEP WORSHIPPING- NO MATTER HOW TIRED YOU ARE. The winds of God are blowing- He’s blowing on our enemies/ and He is blowing us into a new future if we will just OBEY!

So Saith the Lord!

The SEVERE Importance of NEVER Angering a Prophet of God – Missy Hood


PROPHETIC WAR

Do any of you remember Paul when he was walking to his next town, he was minding his own business, yet he ran across a group of arrogant bullies? Remember how they called him “You old balled headed man! You ole bald head, what can you do to us?!!!! WHAT CAN YOU DO TO US!” They said this until bears came out and mauled them to death! The mauling was the judgment of the Lord for their mocking of His prophet! Don’t kid yourself GOD IS NOT A GOD that will be mocked!

My response: Plenty- when you piss a prophet of God off because when other Christians are arrogant enough to take on the anointing on that vessel/prophets life they aren’t taking on the prophet- THEY ARE TAKING CHRIST ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I say if I’m standing uprightly in Christ (minding my own business as a warrior for Christ) and other Christians “think” they want to take me on because of their own penny anty jealousies or whatever, (without considering what Christ has had my vessel go through to attain the high level anointing my vessel houses, I SAY PLENTY! Do you want to know why?!!!!!!!!!! Because my vessel houses the spirit of the MOST HIGH GOD and He’s entrusted me to do His will! I say “Plenty” – because Christ DOES AND WILL BACK MY WORDS against ANYBODY WHO DARES COME UP AGAINST HIS HOLY NAME! I SAY PLENTY- God will use my warrior like nature to do SEVERE HARM to those who allow the devil to operate on their vessels against Him OR HIS PEOPLE (Even Christians/Remember Ussiah- when he touched the ark of the covenant???) because God DOES NOT TOLERATE EVIL OR SATAN. He didn’t tolerate him on Peter’s vessel when Peter had the gall to rebuke Jesus before he went on Calvary! And He’s NOT going to tolerate him on your/anybody’s vessels when they think they can be disrespectful to Him/His people. That even means dysfunctional Christians coming at other Christians!

SO I SAY I CAN DO PLENTY HARM to you when I pray, when I speak, when I act in God’s will because my heart is pure. Blessed are the pure in heart for THEY SHALL SEE GOD! We will see God move, in signs, wonders and miracles, but WE WILL SEE GOD! Which usually means that we will ALSO see a lot of the WARRIOR like qualities of Christ operate through us. He allows us to see these mysteries because if the world is going to mock Him, then he will have vessels in the earth that distribute His justice/vengeance/repayment for that sin.

For those Christians that just ridicule or run their mouths because they don’t have the faith to believe that GOD REALLY DOES manifest on our vessels against them when they CHOOSE to get out of line they get the privilege of having the curses of Christ also come down onto their lives. AND if that wasn’t scary enough- they can possibly be taken out early. I seen it too many times when folks have come at my own vessel- and believe me – ITS NOT ABOUT ME- I’m just a woman- but I AM a woman chosen by God himself from birth to serve Him.

I had a man around me, who for years ran his mouth against me for not reason other than sheet bitterness and strife. God had me warn him at least 3 times because the hammer eventually dropped and God struck his vessel with throat cancer- He shut his vessel up. God IS very VERY SERIOUS about this and about touching anointed vessels wrongfully – AND HE’S VERY SERIOUS about bringing them home if they choose NOT to change!

God has had my vessel give so many prophetic warnings over the years to vessels who kept mocking Him that I’m almost warn out by the action. One girl was in a treatment center and she opted to go back to jail. The Lord had me go to the jail to warn her (I really struggled with this warning too, but I told my pastors beforehand and they said I was hearing Him right because I had no idea of her background with abuse and disobedience to the Lord before that point). So the Lord had me go and tell her that if she went back out into her lifestyle this time He would bring he home early.

She did- get out of jail , and she DID go back out into her old lifestyle and 1 month later a freak fire took her life just like Christ said.

I have too many stories like this to tell, but they grieve me so deeply that I never talk about them. They grieve me because there is SO much pride in the body and to the average person looking on/reading this they would probably deem me as the pride filled person. To them I would respond “I’m sorry, but I never asked for this calling, and was forced into this position by the Lord from birth, I love Him, I serve only Him, and His people or THOSE WHO CHOOSE to walk in love.” And love CAN AND WILL get tough on us when we refuse to obey. God places vessels of leadership into the earth which state with their ministries: This is the way WALK YE IN IT” or you’ll get an early ticket home instead of to hell. THATS God’s mercy because God would rather bring you home early rather than have you reach such a point of debasement that your conscience is seared to where there is no hope.

I know this is a very harsh word but I need your hearts to understand that we are walking in VERY SERIOUS TIMES now! And we are WAY past the point of mamby pamby Christianity where God allows folks to recklessly roughshod over each other in selfishness.

He’s just NOT tolerating it! Its time to get serious and its time to hit our knees in repentance over things that have long held us back and its TIME TO SERVE HIM instead of ourselves! ITS TIME!

Are you ready to pray?
Father God- its so hard to live in this world that you’ve placed me into. Its just hard- and Father I know that you are the God of Justic, the God of war, AND the God of mercy. But I seem to be seeing an awful lot of your warring side these days. ITs because of all the evil that is in the world. Father- help my heart to be pure, ALWAYS- filled with your sprit/love and POWER but keep me pure. Keep me as close to yourself as possible so that I’m ALWAYS walking in the spirit of truth!
In Jesus name-
Amen!

Love in Christ

Prophetic Word for the Body- Sept 4th, 2014 By Rich Darnell


Judging with the King – Word for Month of Elul 5774
by Rich Darnell

Judging with the King – Word for Month of Elul 5774
On August 29, 2014 we at ZoeXpressions Global Ministries hosted a prayer call via conference line. As we entered into worship the Lord began to speak. Due to technical difficulties the call did not get recorded but we were able to remember the key points of what the Lord is speaking for this month based on the prophetic patterns of the Hebraic month of Elul.

This is a month of awakening, in the month of Elul the shofar is sounded to awaken the soul in preparation for the High Holy Days that are coming up in the next month of Tishrei. What we heard was based on Isaiah 60:1-2

“Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. 2 “For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the LORD will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you.

What we heard that God is awakening us into our authority in a new way as sons. The month of Elul is known as a month that the KING IS IN THE FIELD. This means that the King would leave his palace and normal protocol to meet was the king was bypassed. This enabled the people to meet with the king were they lived.

What we received by revelation on the call is that the king, which is Jesus, has a throne and that he is meeting with us this month. Not just as individuals but as leaders, a corporate assembly, within our spheres of responsibility.

Dan 7:9 “I kept looking Until thrones were set up, And the Ancient of Days took His seat; His vesture was like white snow And the hair of His head like pure wool. His throne was ablaze with flames, Its wheels were a burning fire.

That every born again believer has a throne or place of kingdom responsibility assigned by God in the earth. This throne, or place of responsibility may be just your personal life, it can be your family, or neighborhood, business, or place of employment. That the Lord will be assembling us and it is not just a personal assembling to the king but a corporate calling to meet with the king.

That this call is to legislate heaven on earth. The Lord spoke that just like in the natural realm when an officer is promoted the officer receives new a certificate showing their promotion. The Lord in this hour is releasing new documents or orders, commissioned assignments to his people. That this commissioning is giving the Body of Christ a new authority in the earth and orders on how to execute this authority

You will find that in the definition of commission in the Merriam-Webster dictionary has these three meanings that were highlighted to myself, (Rich Darnell), recently

1. A formal written warrant granting the power to perform various acts of duties
2. Authority to act for, in behalf of, or in place of another
3. A government agency having administrative, legislative, or judicial powers

As I had mediated on this definition, which happened before the prayer call, I heard in my spirit the Father say this. “Slaves have permission to share the words of their master, but only a son has a commission to represent the father.” See slaves can share a word from their master but they have no authority to administer the judgments of that word. The good news is that we have not been called to be slaves but sons, male and female for son-ship knows no gender.

The scripture that the Lord used to affirm this revelation was Mark 1:22
They were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the scribes

The word used here for authority is the Greek word exousia (Greek Strong’s 1849) this word can have this meaning

1. The power of Judicial decisions
2. The authority to manage domestic affairs
3. A sign of regal authority, a crown

We also see in John 1:12 that we have been given the power to become the sons of God. Some versions say right. It is the same Greek word exousia.

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:

The Father is wanting us to see ourselves in the place of authority over demonic structures and resources as His sons. Not as slaves who are to just to deliver a message for the king Instead we are too see ourselves as sons, the kings who serve the King.

Note one of the meanings of the Greek word exousia is that it is a regal sign like a crown. A crown can represent a mindset, a way of thinking as it wraps around your head.

Also Jesus, our example, did not teach as one of the scribes but as one who had a crown, a sign of authority that the satanic powers recognized and had to obey. See scribes in the times of Jesus were skilled in the study of the Torah or Law of God and were advisers to the priest and governmental officials on what the Torah was saying concerning certain judgments. Some translations of the Bible use the word lawyer in the place of Scribe, and we can see how our word lawyer could be used in this scripture.

A lawyer is a person whose job is to guide and assist people in matters relating to the law (Merriam-Webster).

The Lord had shown me in a vision prior to the call that in past season that intercessors had been approaching the bench, or throne of God as lawyers. Either defense attorneys, those who were standing in defense against the accusations of Satan and His right to destroy. Or we were acting as prosecuting attorneys. That we were presenting our cases against Satan to get a verdict rendered in favor of the Kingdom against the works of Satan.

What I saw today is that the Lord was shifting us to a throne. That a robe of a Judge, a black robe was being released upon His people. The robe to judge righteously in our spheres of influence. That the Lords judgments were in accordance with Luke 4:18-19.

(18)The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,(19) To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

That the judgments of God were not just opening the eyes of people but communities, cities, and nations. That continents would be impacted by the decrees we make in this hour as the Lord assembles us in the field, that as kings we are being called to meet The King in The Field!

As a prophetic act I took a hammer, I did not have a gavel, as it was a spontaneous moment and began to decree as a judge in my sphere that the light of God was breaking through the darkness of the enemy in our spheres of influence. I hit my table several times as led, more than three or four because I kept remembering how the king only hit the ground with the arrow three times and would have had a greater victory if he had struck the ground more.

I hit the table releasing a sound of justice over the earth. This was our dining table and felt the Lord was saying as in Psalms 23 that he was setting a table before us in the presence of our enemies.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over

NOTE the Lord says in the PRESENCE of our enemies not our friends.

This speaks that we will be surrounded by the powers of darkness but the Lord will set the table. I believe we can see this pattern happening in Israel and even among the humanistic government that is now in place in America today. Despite what it looks like God is setting the table to release the sound of His justice in this hour.

While we are in worship before I released this word of the light breaking forth into the earth. My wife Cris had a vision in which the heavens opened and light came through. As we continued to worship, we were singing holy, holy is the lamb, angels were worshiping with us. This light was coming through into many places in the earth. It was not just touching one place. While it may look like we are surrounded by darkness. Instead we must know that His light is upon us and is breaking through the darkness and that His glory will be upon us.

Note the Feats of Tabernacles will soon be upon us and represent that God’s glory will tabernacle with us.

I believe that this is speaking if the times and season we are in. That this is the Isaiah 60:1-5 verse coming forth in this hour for our generation the way the Lord had destined it to be. While the fullness of this manifestation will not happen with in one or two years it is the beginning of the light of His glory coming forth into the earth in a new way. The Tabernacle of David for this generation that has been hidden in the caves like the Elijah’s and other prophets in times past. That many of us have been hidden in the caves. That we are now being called out of our caves and are being sent to be a light into the earth that will impact all seven spheres of society. The restoration of the Tabernacle of David

Acts 3:(20) And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: (21) Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

The Lord is restoring the Tabernacle of David in this hour and it is not just the houses of worship and prayer alone. But it is the Body of Christ being RE- membered or stitched back together into what the Lord has destined. This movement is not what the traditions of man have made it to be, but a fresh wind is being released upon the Tabernacle of David in this hour. A wind as in Ezekeil 37:9

Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

The Hebrew word for David can mean beloved, so when we see the Father say that Jesus was His beloved Son in whom He was well pleased. The Father was actually saying in Hebrew this is my Son David in whom I am well pleased.

Matt 3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

I want to present to you that the restoration of the Tabernacle of David that the Bible prophecies is more than just the restoration of the harp and bowl, 24/7 prayer movement, as we know it. But it is literally the Body of Christ being assembled and operating within their God given authority in the 7 mountains or spheres of influence; arts, government, business, media, family, religion, and education.

In our prayer time the Lord highlighted three areas for us to repent of for the Body of Christ.
• Discontentment
• Discouragement
• Hopelessness

We had a sense that because of what is going on in the earth and moving by information more than revelation has caused the Body of Christ to lose sight of what God is doing. That Body of Christ has been seeing the waves of darkness as like the giants in the promises land. That by beholding the giant’s feelings of powerless to change what is going on in the earth has tried to overtake them. God is not showing us these things because they are bigger than us, but because He is bigger than them. And that He has a plan and that the kings of the earth will come to the light of our glory seeking solutions to these problems.

I am not saying that there will be a utopia upon the earth and that there will not be darkness and tragic events. I am saying that we will have answers and resources to meet the needs of those who seek the council of the Body of Christ who are operating in the Kingdom of God. That we will see nations beginning to align with either the Kingdom of God or an antichrist system. How all this will play out only the Lord fully understands. We must just be willing to let go of the things that we have been taught to allow Holy Spirit to illuminate the Scriptures according to what Heaven says not Humanism and religion have and are trying to dictate to us.

The Lord will be giving us contentment in our places of assignments. We must be like Paul who was contentment in whatever state he found himself. Contentment is not lack of action but is a place of satisfaction with what we are doing being not distracted by the circumstances that surround us. That the circumstances do not determine our contentment but our walk with God does. That like Christ we can persevere because we understand the joy and the reward set before us, and that reward is bigger than our own personal gain but is a reward of seeing the glory of God’s Kingdom literally shape the earth in a new way.

Phil 4:11-12 I don’t say this out of need, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. 12 I know both how to have a little, and I know how to have a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret [of being content] —whether well-fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need.

We must gain a new courage not in what we know but in Whom we know. God knew that you when you would be born and you were chosen by God to be born in this time. That means the grace to accomplish your destiny is available and not controlled by man, but is determined by His word.

Rom. 8:28- 29 We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose. 29 For those He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers.

We must find our compass of faith again in hope. God has a plan and an expected end. See hope is the needle of the compass that allows our faith to find direction in dark times. Let hope arise in our hearts knowing that we are not hopeless pawns to a world system. But are mighty warriors for a glorious King!

Heb 11:1 Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen. 2 For by it our ancestors were approved.

Jer. 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

In this month we will see that the Lord is opening up to us a unique opportunity, not to just meet with him in the field as King for our own personal lives. But that this opportunity is being given so that the body of Christ can start to assemble and come together and legislate heaven on earth with a new sound. So we need to be open to hear the Spirit of God to call us to assemble in new ways and new places. To be placed into position to see His Kingdom come, His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

Shalom

What It Means to Be a Leader


I have come to the conclusion that I want my life to reflect a life to those around me “that matters.” In my leadership style I have always demanded NOT to be religious but relational in my attempts to reflect a genuine down heartedness to those that cross my path.
I have thought long and hard about my leadership style because when I leave this life I want anyone made aware of my departure to say “man, she mattered.” She mattered because she cared so much about those whose lives she touched.I still believe in the power of Palmers quote when he states: “I value ethical standards, of course, but in a culture like ours- which devalues or dismisses the reality and power of the inner life- ethics too often becomes an external code of conduct, an objective set of rules we are told to follow, a moral exoskeleton we put on hoping to prop ourselves up.The problem with exoskeletons is simple: we can slip them off as easily as
we can don them (Palmer, 2004, p. 8).
This “outside/exoskeleton” life that I try so hard to shed is what I describe in my attempts to show others around me how important it is to” matter.” Or to leave a lasting impression on those we leave behind in our attempts to live on or to leave a legacy. You see, my job isn’t just to counsel/preach/teach, my job in this earth is to point others (God puts in to my path) towards Him. In all that I do, at the end of my life, my Ph.D. won’t matter, nor any of the power/privilege that come with it, my denomination won’t matter, nor my political affiliations (although I claim none), my skin color won’t matter, nor my sex, so the only thing people will
remember me by (even as a professional) will be what my heart displayed. The only thing in this life I will be remembered for is how my love for that soul demonstrated God’s love in the things I did/said for/to those around me. For good or for evil.
I think the term “I die daily” is one of the hardest biblical truths to apply to our lives, outside of taking our thoughts captive, because both require us to be attentive. Attentive to what we are thinking, saying, or doing (when we interact) leaving an impact on those relationships.
This paper is even important to my heart because I want to make sure that the heart reading this knows that whether they know me, or ever meet me, but that this heart knows that someone out here is praying for them while I attend their class or write in a blog. I’m not just here to attain a degree or to be assigned a grade or just to write, I’m here to serve others in every way possible as I feel my life is supposed to serve a greater purpose.
I believe in Churchill’s Principals within how I establish/build my life and I believe with all my heart that those I interact with (in leadership circles/trusted inner circles) know me to be a woman of my word (Borgmann, 2006). I believe that’s important because here 30 years later, after serving 30 years in ministry you can ask any past team member I’ve served with and most will tell you “man, make sure you want to know the truth BEFORE you go to Missy because she SURELY will tell you the truth- according to her biblical beliefs.” I don’t state that arrogantly but as a matter of fact, because I believe it’s important (even when we misunderstand or disagree with
each other) that we all are able to dialogue and find solutions amicably. I believe that we will have all kinds of people who cross our paths in this life with varying views/opinions, some right, others very wrong, but it’s not our place to change that mind/heart , it’s God’s, and I’m not Him.
I believe that leadership within my own life is mostly silently reflected by my daily actions which make people in my sphere feel safe to open up to my heart. This is the “circle of trust” that Palmer stated in his example of how we get a soul to open itself up to inner transformation in opinionated groups.
If I ever think anything, any title, power, or money, or affiliations (political or religious) will carry me in this life I am only deluding myself with fleshly things because it’s the matters of the heart that will always make a difference. A good leader has ethical standards, they are usually almost always (or should be) neutral/indifferent and should act as a bridge to conversations/solutions. This doesn’t matter if I’m a Kantist, Utilitarian, Evolutionary Psychologist, etc., it’s all mute, when it comes to sound leadership and ethics leading hearts they influence. I also believe that we are ALL held highly accountable to whom we influence for good/evil in the eyes of the Lord and I take this truth very seriously in my daily career activities.
In my field I am called to listen/minister to some of the most heinous life experiences as when I wrote about the woman who tried to adopt the drug addict’s child, as no class member commented on my writing.
I very rarely ever talk about my counseling experiences because some are so bad/unbelievably evil that it makes those hearts listening run away. I felt this same stance was true in the lack of comments on that last writing. It’s always the same response which is why I feel it necessary when forced to step into that type of situation that my actions “matter.” I wrote the response to create a jolt/reaction to make people wake up to the fact that not everybody has the same type of life that we do so WE need to BE that difference. We each need to “matter.”
I feel that my actions begin to “matter” when I am able to listen/guide that heart with biblical ethics/virtues in the way that heart should/can make it through such atrocities. “This is the way walk ye in it (New International Version, Is 30:21). None of the things of the flesh/world will fix that kind of hurt but my actions/ethics as a leader/counselor will hopefully assist in giving that guidance. My actions do not represent judgment, or cowardice, my actions hopefully show that heart that God is viewing their life as one that matters as well so that inner transformation (like Palmer spoke of) can occur.
Friday I will be attending a funeral of a dear family friend who was like a father to me since I was 22 years old as he died just yesterday. I might be called to pray or speak about his life/situation to a group of deeply hurting people to assist them in dealing with the tremendous loss they’ve just experienced.
As a leader, my thoughts are already gearing up as to what I might say over Eddie’s life, which will lead me down a path to the truth of HOW “he mattered.” He mattered to a 22 year old who was lost when her own father died in his ability to show my heart how to pick up and move on with my own life.He mattered when he would call to check on me throughout the years just to say “he loved us or to ask how were we doing?” Because of these actions his life showed my heart that not only I mattered to him but that “HE mattered.”
My question today and every day hereon will be: “Do others who view my leadership style/life see it as one of purpose/integrity because of the impact I am making for Christ? We are all connected in this life, whether we choose to believe that or not, but your life touches mine and vice versa and how I live out my life will impact yours, and many others. The bottom is line to the question ethical leadership is not “did I live my life to the fullest but what my life “FULL of making a difference?” Because to Christ if my life is not bearing fruit daily THAT matters (New International Version, Matt 21:19).
(Kleinke, 2007) stated that self-sacrificial leadership promotes the image of leaders as being willing to incur personal costs to serve the “greater cause”, especially when exposed to external threats or crises.
(Markie, 2000) stated that good teachers/counselors/leaders are those that can
demonstrate certain values:
Intellectual Competence
Sense of Relevant connection
The Knowledge of Human Beings;

My only hope is that I am one of those with these traits ……..………and…..that I mattered

Prophetic Word by Missy Hood August 2014- THE FIREY PRESSURE BUILDING WITHIN/WITHOUT


Buning Bush
THE FIREY PRESSURE BUILDING WITHIN/WITHOUT

There is fire coming onto my body that is so powerful that it will literally shake the heavens.
Just like a plane that has to climb to higher altitudes, as it makes its climb the pressure of that altitude (glory of the heavens) will literally shake its body.
So as you feel the pressure mounting up against you in this narrow place KNOW that all is well with your soul as your
Vessel starts to be shaken. Do not be alarmed at the shaking as the old dross is being shaken off (finally) to where
Your heart can be “stayed” on Me. I am putting new armor/a new metal/rivets to patch up the holes in your armor caused by war.
I am getting your back (Is 52:12/rear guard) as you climb to ensure that no one has a scent of your tracking/upward mobility.
Sometimes, just like I take my angels- I allow them to climb within the dimensions of My spirit so that they too would know Me,
But YOU little Flock- I allow your heart to go anywhere it desires to climb within My being/My Spirit/all the dimensions of heaven
Laid out here in the earth for you to explore. I want your heart to be able to explore EVERY aspect of my power/authority as it
Is laid out before you in the earth. SO that YOU might know My kingship and all of the keys of heaven so that ALL would see That there IS ONLY 1 GOD who creates, who controls, empowers, and directs His sheep. Just as the shepherd directs/guides
His sheep into cleaner/purer/SAFER pastures So will I go ahead of you always providing, removing, clearing a path of safety.

For all of you leaders: STOP YOUR BICKERING- as I see many quarrels breaking out among you because of the pressure that has been building
Around you. You make the body fearful when they see quarrels break out amongst you and you need NOT lead with hesitancy BUT WITH INTEGRITY
Guarding your tongue.
A little leaven will spoil the entire pot if you continue to allow these quarrels to break out instead of squelching them right from the start- DO NOT let
The pressure of the fire hit your tongue first- but instead allow that fire to consume your heart/souls so that I might ignite My spirit within you!
SO SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS!
Love in Christ,

Stubborness- By Derek Prince Ministries


Do you ever struggle with stubbornness? You know—those times when it’s clear you should change your mind about an issue, but you just can’t? Or maybe you even refuse to do so? (Please tell me I’m not the only one who struggles in this area!)

Maybe a situation is coming to mind right now—a matter where the Holy Spirit is nudging you to change your opinion, but you are resisting that urge. Or perhaps the Lord is simply working on you to become a little more pliable in your positions and/or attitudes.

I’m not trying to get into your business. But if, like me, you periodically deal with stubborn tendencies, this letter may provide some light and life to you. I sure hope so!

A Gripping Message

One of the amazing aspects of reading the Word of God is discovering a verse I have read before, but never truly “seen.” It happens to me regularly, and it was my experience once again just a few weeks ago.

It began as I was driving in a familiar part of town. I noticed a new billboard featuring these four bold words: JESUS LORD REMEMBER ME. At the bottom of the billboard was the citation: Luke 23:42. Recognizing this as the request of one of the criminals crucified with Jesus, the four words gripped me: JESUS LORD REMEMBER ME. I thought, “What a good prayer to offer regularly to the Lord!”

But there was also a nagging question: “Did the thief on the cross call Jesus by name?” I didn’t think he did, so at my first opportunity, I checked the passage. Technically, the billboard was correct: those four words do appear consecutively. Luke 23:42 reads: “Then he [the second thief] said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom” (NKJV). Even better, we know the wonderful way our Savior responded: “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”

Never Saw It Before

My next thought was, Maybe in one of the other Gospel accounts the thief called Jesus by name. When I checked in Matthew, I found the verse I had never noticed before.

In the account of the crucifixion in Matthew 27, beginning with verse 38, I saw the depiction of the two robbers crucified with Jesus—one on the right and one on the left. The next verse described the crowds of people walking past the crucified Christ—blaspheming Him and heaping abuse on Him: “If You are the Son of God, come down from the cross” (verse 40b, NKJV). The chief priests, scribes and elders also joined in with other abusive statements like: “He saved others; Himself He cannot save”(verse 42a, NKJV).

Then came the verse that blew my mind: “Even the robbers who were crucified with Him reviled Him with the same thing” (verse 44, NKJV). Robbers—plural. At the start of the crucifixion, both of the thieves were scoffing at Jesus. But at some point, the second criminal changed his mind. As a result, his words took on a completely different tone.

We don’t know how that change in attitude occurred, but clearly it did. Luke 23:42 marks the moment this second thief went from railing at Jesus, to an absolute turnaround. So complete was the change, that he even rebuked the other thief for scoffing. Then he asked Jesus to remember him. For that man, his change of mind was the difference between eternal death and eternal life–the difference between his damnation and his entrance into Paradise.

Seeing this dramatic shift in the thief’s attitude—which I had never noticed before—my first thought was, You might want to consider changing your mind.

The Dangers of a Stiff Neck

In Webster’s Dictionary, the definition for “stubborn” is: “unreasonably or perversely unyielding: MULISH. (See OBSTINATE).” Not at all complimentary, is it? Likewise, the Bible has nothing good to say about stubborn people. Scripture usually refers to them as stiff-necked or obstinate, always with a severe penalty attached to their behavior.

Here’s a brief sampling of passages on the dangers of stubbornness. To the children of Israel, God said: “Go up to the land flowing with milk and honey. But I will not go with you, because you are a stiff-necked people and I might destroy you on the way” (Exodus 33:3, NIV). The Hebrew word there for stiff-necked is the same word used in earlier chapters of Exodus to describe the hardening of Pharaoh’s heart toward the Jews.

Particularly sobering is Proverbs 29:1: “He who is often rebuked, and hardens his neck, will suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.” (Taking our cue from the thief on the cross, we might want to consider changing our minds.)

Finally, the convicting words in Acts 7:51 that were the cause of Stephen’s martyrdom: “You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit; as your fathers did, so do you.” Even the slightest sign of stiffness in my neck ought to prompt me to consider changing my mind!

Softening Our Hearts and Our Necks

In a powerful teaching, “You Must Decide,” Derek Prince highlighted our need to respond to the Lord’s prompting by changing our minds. However, he added one very encouraging fact: we can count on the Holy Spirit for help in our response.

Now, whereas we have to make the decision, we need to bear in mind that we cannot make the decision without the help of the Holy Spirit. The initiative actually comes from God; it always does.

There is a beautiful verse in Lamentations, right at the end of the fifth chapter, verse 21, where there is this pathetic plea: “Turn us back to you, O Lord, and we shall be restored.” But if you look in the margin of the New King James, it says “we shall be turned back.” That is the literal translation. The prophet says, “Turn us and we shall be turned.”

The first move comes from God. If God doesn’t turn us, on our own we are unable to turn. On the other hand, if God begins to turn us, we will not turn unless we make the right decision.

I suppose this is the most critical moment in the life of any human soul. It’s the moment when the Holy Spirit is saying, “Turn. I’ll help you.” Then we have to decide, “Am I going to cooperate with the Holy Spirit–or am I going to shrug it off and say I don’t want to?” Your decision is what makes the difference.

The Holy Spirit will plead with you. The Holy Spirit will move upon you. But He will not make the decision for you.

What Will Be My Response?

Is the emphasis of this letter helpful to you? If you do recognize areas of stubbornness in your life, what action can you and I take to deal with those tendencies?

One encouraging piece of logic is that if the Lord commands us not to harden our hearts, He must have a means for us to obey that command. Are there some positive steps we can actively take to soften our hearts and our necks? One response could be to follow the admonition of King Hezekiah in 2 Chronicles 30:8: “Now do not be stiff-necked, as your fathers were; but yield yourselves to the LORD; and enter His sanctuary, which He has sanctified forever, and serve the Lord your God, that the fierceness of His wrath may turn away from you.”

Those are three helpful ways to avoid hardening of the heart: 1) yield to the Lord; 2) worship Him; 3) serve Him. Would you like to respond in prayer right now along those lines? Let’s do so together with the following proclamation:

Lord, I don’t want to be stubborn or stiff-necked in any way, because nothing good comes from those behaviors. Above all, I don’t want to be displeasing to You by a stiff-necked attitude. I ask now for Your forgiveness for any wrong-headedness or resistance to Your ways, and I repent of all stubbornness. By faith, I receive Your cleansing from this sin in my life.

Help me to be more pliable in Your hands and more useful for Your purposes. If I am holding to opinions or positions that are displeasing in Your sight, I relinquish them. I am willing, like the thief on the cross, to change my mind and my behavior—moving from death to life. Turn me, Lord!

I want to take positive steps that lead out of a stiff-necked condition. I yield to You, Lord. I enter into worship, giving You all glory and honor. And I offer myself in service to You.

Not my will, but Yours be done. Not my opinion, but Your wisdom alone. Not my decisions, but Your direction for me. I gladly consider changing my mind, so that I might be Your obedient servant. Amen.

Yielded and Still

Your prayer has opened up your spirit to the Lord in a brand new way. Right now, I’m thinking of words from the first verse of the hymn, “Have Thine Own Way, Lord.” Here is the prayer we sing to the Lord in that verse: “Mold me and make me after Thy will, while I am waiting, yielded and still.” If you and I could only stay pliable in His hands—“waiting, yielded and still” for His direction—what might we accomplish for Him?

Let’s try it and see what happens! Of course, all of us here at DPM–USA join you in that pursuit. Being pliable in His hands is our goal as well, so let’s pursue that objective together. Would you allow us to help by providing some teaching materials for you? Can we begin with the full message of “You Must Decide,” from which we drew the excerpt of Derek’s teaching in this letter? Simply click here to download it, and it is yours with our compliments.

Encouraging you in your progress as a disciple of Jesus Christ is one of our greatest joys. On your part, you have brought tremendous encouragement to us through your faithful prayers and financial assistance. Thank you for your concern, contact and support. We simply could not do the work before us without your involvement. Thank you for linking arms with us as we all move forward in obedience to Him.

Keep This Word in Mind

You and I have taken a pivotal step together today. It’s not every day that we tackle tough issues in our lives like the problem of stubbornness.

Let’s allow this process to continue. Let’s ask the Lord to keep showing us the obstacles that need to be eliminated from our lives. Let’s wait before Him regularly, “yielded and still” enough to hear His voice of encouragement and correction.

You and I can trust the Lord Jesus to make the adjustments He desires in our lives. Even when we may be heading initially in the wrong direction—like the thief on the cross—He can turn us. We can complete that turn—if we will consider changing our minds.

All the best,

Blasting OUT Through Ressurrection Power!


Resurrection

We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may be revealed in our mortal body. II Cor 4:10

I was just reading this and the realization hit me that BOTH the DEATH AND THE RESSURRECTION of Christ’s POWER lies within each of us! Did you know that?!!!!!! BOTH the power of what His death FOR US did and then THE BLASTING OUT POWER of what HIS RESSURRECTION did when He rose from that death. During that time frame between the time He died and then the time He rose was when He went down into the bowels of hell and yanked back the keys of the kingdom so that you and I would walk in His Power again! In his Glory, with the same authority as He did when He walked the earth. THIS is what gave us that ability back!!!!!!!!!!! This is also why the signs, wonders and the miracles still abound in the earth today. That means- YOUR VESSEL and MINE can operate in them!

Do you know what this means? That when you give your life to Christ, that just like Jesus- your old spirit man steps up to the cross and starts the dying process to self/to the flesh/your old ways. And when you receive Christ as Lord over your life your NEW MAN is then intertwined with Christ’s spirit from within and begins its acension Upward through His power from within. This occurs in your mind, will, emotions as they too start the unification process with Jesus inside of your body. ISN’T THAT AMAZING!!!!! Just because You said yes! “Yes to the Dress!”
You put on your heavenily ball gown as Christ’s bride at that moment!

And He started the beatification process of making you into Himself. A little Jesus in the earth! WOW! AMAZING! Giving you, JUST LIKE HE GAVE THE DISCIPLES His SAME AUTHORITY to go and cast out demons, to heal the sick, and give eye sight to the blind! YOU HAVE THIS SAME RESSURRECTION POWER! IF you know Jesus- YOUR vessel has been charged by the “Jesus- power pack!”

So many of us think we have to clean ourselves up, or try to change who we are at the levels we are at. Stuck in our muck/mire and then when we get the invitation to come to Christ to be beautified in Him we look at ourselves in that moment and most (unless surrounded by Loving vessels to prop them up into the truth of what Love says about them- that they are loved “flaws and all”) run away.

I can understand too because I too ran away from salvation because I thought it would limit my life. I thought salvation in Christ would mean I would become this boring, religious old lady with a bun on her head, not to mention not being allowed to wear makeup. And Girrrrrrrrrlllllll or Boyyyyyyyyyyyy (whoever is reading this) if you’ve ever seen me without makeup… I say that because, well, I think even Jesus cringes in the mornings saying to His angels “go toss her her make – up bag on her bed so she sees it when she awakes! Quick- DO IT NOW! We Don’t want to scare anybody and we’ve hit our quota for heavenily entrances for today!!!”

Seriously- most of us still struggle with being able to really accept the truth that Jesus REALLY does love us just like we are. Even in our muck/mire. Even when we sin, HE STILL LOVES US! Even when we disobey, YEP- He STILL LOVES US! Even when we let Him down- YEP, YEP AND again I SAY YEP!

The bible states that God knew us before the foundations of the world. So if He knew you then (before you were even born) AND because He’s also Omniciscent (everywhere at once- meaning- He’s in your past, present AND FUTURE) don’t you think He knew all of the crummy stuff we would choose to do in our lives?

So what makes your life different from anybody elses?

My God! My God!
Is this you today- are you saved? Are you struggling with the truth that Jesus REALLY DOES LOVE YOU? He loves your whether or not He’s answering your prayers, He loves you when your sinning, He just LOVES YOU! Whether people around do or not! HE DOES!
Here- pray this prayer with me ok?
Father God- I need you! I need your Love in my life, and I JUST NEED YOU! I love you, and I can’t live my life without You!
(if you want to know His love) pray this:
Father I’m so sorry for my sins, I repent, and I ask you to forgive me, I ask you to come into my heart, along with your Holy Spirit infilling and I ask YOU Father to be the Lord over my life! RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW- in my muck and in my mire. Come in and show me WHO LOVE IS!
Thank you Father!
Amen!
Love to you guys
Missy
