Lion Bites – Global Prophetic Alliance – Overflow

The Lord is saying, ‘Beloved, the love I share is not to be held back from anyone, for I will show mercy to those I choose. Furthermore, I have chosen you to share that personal love through Jesus, my Son. There is a gap between what you know in your lives and what you are able to share with others.

BE FILLED to overflowing with my love, my joy, and my compassion for you.

Take my heart for the world and overflow from the Spirit who lives in all you who have called on the name of Christ for salvation. There is an abundance to go around. I am eternal. You cannot outgive me.’

The scriptures declare the fast that the Lord chooses: to loose the chains of injustice, to set the oppressed free, share food with the hungry, provide the poor wanderer with shelter and clothe the naked (See Isaiah 58:6-7).

6[Rather] is this not the fast which I choose, to undo the bonds of wickedness, to tear to pieces the ropes of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free and break apart every [enslaving] yoke?

7 “Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into the house; when you see the naked, that you cover him, and not to hide yourself from [the needs of] your own flesh and blood?

Isaiah 58:6-7 (AMP)

The challenge is great and the harvest is ready for gathering.

Be blessed to overflowing in the spiritual blessings from the heavenly places in your words, deeds, and hearts.

Declaration: The greatest days in church history are not in the past; they are in our present and our future!

And this hope is not a disappointing fantasy, because we can now experience the endless love of God cascading into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who lives in us!

Romans 5:5 (TPT)

Discipleship Is Costly

24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me].

25 For whoever wishes to save his life[in this world] will [eventually] lose it[through death], but whoever loses his life[in this world] for My sake will find it [that is, life with Me for all eternity].

For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world [wealth, fame, success], but forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

Matthew 16:24-26 (AMP)

Now Jesus was telling the disciples a parable to make the point that at all times they ought to pray and not give up and lose heart,

Luke 18:1 (AMP)

but He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you [My lovingkindness and My mercy are more than enough—always available—regardless of the situation]; for [My] power is being perfected [and is completed and shows itself most effectively] in [your] weakness.” Therefore, I will all the more gladly boast in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ [may completely enfold me and] may dwell in me.

2 Corinthians 12:9 (AMP)

15 Therefore see that you walk carefully [living life with honor, purpose, and courage; shunning those who tolerate and enable evil], not as the unwise, but as wise [sensible, intelligent, discerning people],

16 [1]making the very most of your time [on earth, recognizing and taking advantage of each opportunity and using it with wisdom and diligence], because the days are [filled with] evil.

17 Therefore do not be foolish and thoughtless, but understand and firmly grasp what the will of the Lord is.

Ephesians 5:15-17 (AMP)
Footnotes
1 Ephesians 5:16 The Greek word in this verse means “buy up at the market place.” Opportunity is regarded as a commodity to be used by believers.

Fathers, do not provoke or irritate or exasperate your children [with demands that are trivial or unreasonable or humiliating or abusive; nor by favoritism or indifference; treat them tenderly with lovingkindness], so they will not lose heart and become discouraged or unmotivated [with their spirits broken].

Colossians 3:21 (AMP)

I press on toward the goal to win the [heavenly] prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 3:20 (AMP)

Do Not Love The World

Do not love the world [of sin that opposes God and His precepts], nor the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

1 John 2:15

Lion Bites – Global Prophetic Alliance – Peace in the Temple

When all else fails will you then turn to me? When you work and sweat and strive on your own, I am pushed out of the scene. But when you seek me, I will be found by you and when you search for me and invite me in, I will be there. If you ask me, I will go before you and show you the way. You are in my hands and I will never let you go.

My peace will empower and strengthen you but my peace is not the peace the world understands. It is an everlasting peace that comes from you and I being one, so let not your heart be troubled.

Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29:12-13 (NKJV)

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

John 14:27 (NKJV)

9 The things which you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things [in daily life], and the God [who is the source] of peace and well-being will be with you.

Philippians 4:9 (AMP)

Lion Bites – Global Prophetic Alliance – A Spiritual Cleanse

Your body is a home for My Holy Spirit and I’m urging you to let me help you scrub it clean.

You have a spiritual house along with the physical bricks and mortar building you live in, and for some of you I am speaking about a deep cleanse for both!

Over the years you have collected lots of possessions but haven’t realised how much some of those things weigh you down. As you start cleaning, clearing out and getting rid of stuff, you will be amazed at the lightness and sense of well-being it brings. This works both in the practical and the spiritual, and I love using symbols to help you see things more clearly.

I understand decluttering your physical home can feel overwhelming. Simply asking My Spirit, ‘Where do I begin’ will save you time and effort. Allow Holy Spirit to highlight anything which needs to go; maybe a memento from someone you no longer see, because it inspires grief hidden in your heart. And yet, when you bring the pain to me, I get to draw close and bring you healing.

Activation: Ask Holy Spirit to direct you to something He wants you to clear out in your home. As you embark on this chore, continue to ask more questions… Why this particular drawer, cupboard, shed, etc., and what it represents in your life? Keep your spiritual ears open as you work through this process and pause when you sense Holy Spirit asking you to linger or highlighting something to you. You will feel so much lighter by the end of it.

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your bodies.

1 Corinthians 6:19 (NIV)

Monday Morning Scripture (Wk37/2022) – 1 Corinthians 6:12-20

The Body Is The Lord’s

12 Everything is permissible for me, but not all things are beneficial. Everything is permissible for me, but I will not be enslaved by anything [and brought under its power, allowing it to control me].

13 Food is for the stomach and the stomach for food, but God will do away with both of them. The body is not intended for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body [to save, sanctify, and raise it again because of the sacrifice of the cross].

14 And God has not only raised the Lord [to life], but will also raise us up by His power.

15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Am I therefore to take the members of Christ and make them part of a [1]prostitute? Certainly not!

16 Do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, “THE TWO SHALL BE ONE FLESH.”

17 But the one who is united and joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.

18 Run away from sexual immorality [in any form, whether thought or behavior, whether visual or written]. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the one who is sexually immoral sins against his own body.

19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is within you, whom you have [received as a gift] from God, and that you are not your own [property]?

20 You were bought with a price [you were actually purchased with the precious blood of Jesus and made His own]. So then, honor and glorify God with your body.

1 Corinthians 6:12-20 (AMP)

Footnotes

  1. 1 Corinthians 6:15 Corinth was famous for its prostitutes, and many if not all probably practiced their trade in connection with the worship of Aphrodite. Having relations with temple or cult prostitutes was considered acceptable behavior, and Paul’s admonitions here indicate that some of the Corinthian converts were continuing the practice.
