oh... and yesterday i had my hair in one of those messy buns... and mazerick was laughing hysterically at me saying... MOM, YOU'RE HAIR! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.... the little terd. he was like, I can fix it mom. he kept laughing until i made it into a regular pony tail:)
so, i've been reading the final quest by rick joyner... it's a great book. but it's way deep. i mean i've been reading it for 2 weeks and on page 22. i can only read so much before i have to stop.
here's the first entry from my journal on it... it's just a precursor for where the book goes...
... my goal. pray... ponder... listen... write... respond...
prophecy and visions-something that is seen with "the eyes of our heart."
the more the "eyes of our heart" are opened, as Paul prayed in Eph. 1:18, the more powerful and useful these can be. (prophecies and visions)
Every scripture is taken from the NASV... because that's the only version I could find in my house not on the computer:)
Eph. 1:18; having the eyes of your heart enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints.
the anointing of the holy spirit-a conscious sense of the presence of the Lord, which gives special illumination to our minds.
for joyner, iit often comes when he's writing or speaking... gives him greater confidence in the importance or accuracy of what he is saying.
when does it come for me?
a higher level of vision is what joyner calls "open visions" which is more than just an impression-it's external, viewed with the precision and clarity of a movie screen.
a trance-acts 22; saul became paul, blinded. woke in a trance, saw Jesus. it's like dreaming whenn you are awake.. you don't just see the movie, you feel like you are in it.
the visions contained in this book all began with a dream. the overwhelmin majority was recieved in some level of trance.
states emphatically-NO PROPHETIC REVELATION IS FOR THE PURPOSE OF ESTABLISHING DOCTRINE. WE HAVE SCRIPTURES FOR THAT!
2 basic uses for the prophetic:
...revealing the present or future strategic will of the Lord in certain matters.
...illuminating doctrine that is taught in the scriptures, but is not clearly seen.
"REMEMBER, ONLY SCRIPTURES DESERVE TO BE INFALLIBLE."
