    THE GREAT EXCAPE

    The Lord is encouraging those of you that are allowing yourselves to remain imprisoned by your “EX” lives.

    I carry the word of the Lord to you this day.  I declare and decree by the power of the Blood of Jesus and the authority of His Name, you are set free!  Every tie from your past that would bind, every shackle or chain from your past that would attempt to hold you down, is now broken.  You are not an ex-con, an ex-addict, an ex-spouse, or ex-anything.  You are a new creature in Christ.  Yes, He has made all things new!  This is the day of your great Excape from your past.

    Declare and decree it; receive and walk in it!  This is your great Excape!

    II Corinthians 5:

    17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

    TEETER-TOTTER

    Even as the systems of this world seem to teeter-totter, even as the nations shake, even as the Lord pulls down one and sets up another, even then fear not; but trust in Him.  Look up for there is a higher way and the fullness of truth.  There is the Rock upon which you stand that keeps you on solid ground.  He is your Fortress, your High Tower, your Salvation, the King of Kings.  He will keep you and provide for you in all ways and in all things.  Be found in faith, only trust in Him.

    Psalm 18:

    I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.

    2 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

    3 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

    4 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

    5 The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.

    6 In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

    7 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.

    8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.

    9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.

    10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.

    11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.

    12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.

    13 The Lord also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.

    14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.

    15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O Lord, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

    16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.

    17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.

    18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the Lord was my stay.

    19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.

    20 The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.

    YOUR WAY OR GOD’S WAY

    Well, you have tried it your way, every which way, and it hasn’t worked.  You now find yourself in a bigger mess than you even thought possible.  And yes, it seems to be getting even worse.  But there is that whisper, that still small voice of the Lord that is calling to you.  It is so faint but ever so persistent.  It speaks this is the way walk in it. There still is a reluctance of the flesh to obey for that is not the way you want to go or the way you want to do it.  But hear the voice of the Lord’s leading in your life today.  His way is the way out for you.  His way will lead you to all that He has promised…abundant life.  Heed His whisper and follow His way beginning this day!

    Proverbs 14:

    12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

    John 10:

    10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

    John 14:

    6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    CATALYSTS OF CHANGE

    The Lord is and has positioned and placed many of His that they may act as catalysts of change.  These catalysts of change carry His light, truth, and love into the territory of the enemy.  Their entrance into these strongholds long-held by the enemy is not welcomed and is met with great force of resistance.  But the Lord God Almighty has decreed change and so shall it be.  The captives shall be set free, the blind shall see, the deaf shall hear.  For with the entrance of His light, the darkness is dispelled revealing the clarity of His truth that His love may prevail.

    Daniel 2:

    21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:

    22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

    DO NOT GIVE UP YOUR VICTORY

    Though the word for today seems short, it is a very powerful word that I sense will bring great confirmation and encouragement to many who have been fighting overwhelming odds and ferocious battles for sometime.  May you be blessed:

    DO NOT GIVE UP YOUR VICTORY

    You have done all you can.  Now stand in faith for the Lord is delivering the enemy into your hands. Do not give up your victory because of the way things look or feel in the natural right now.  The Lord has given you the victory!

    I John 5:

    4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

    Joshua 10:

    8 And the Lord said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee.

    SURELY THERE COMES AN END

    The Lord has not forgotten you in your troubles.  He has known His plans for you all along.  You remember His words to you, His promises that you have held unto oh so tightly through many hard days and long nights of battle.  His words are your hope and expectation, and though they may have seemed long in coming the time is nigh.  You have fought the fight of faith, and you shall see the goodness of the Lord your God in the land of the living!  Lift up your weary hands and praise Him for the victory.  For now there surely comes an end,  and your hope and expectation shall be realized.

    Jeremiah 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.

     

    Proverbs 23:

    18 For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.

    UNLIKELY WARRIORS RUN TO THE BATTLE

    You are the Lord’s chosen warriors.  Though you have been hidden from view, you have been trained up as the champion warriors of the Lord of Hosts.  You have faced many battles in the past and learned to rely on the Lord for victory.  You have been taught how to war by following the strategies of the Lord Himself.  Though you may appear to be the most unlikely of warriors and rely not on conventional weapons, you are His champions.  You are armed with faith and truth; and dangerous because of your total trust and belief in your Lord God Whose leading you follow without hesitation or question. Now there comes a mighty threat of the enemy that causes even seasoned warriors of the Lord to cower down.  But you know no fear, champion warriors!  This is your time to arise and run to the battle armed of the Lord.  This is the day for which you are trained.  This is the threat for which you were fitted to take down.  Be not discouraged by doubts of even your brothers and sisters.  Be not dismayed by ridicule of the enemy.  You know whose you are and to whom the battle belongs.  Declare His word that you may take down the giant in the Name of the Lord!

    I Samuel 17:

    42 And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance.

    43 And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.

    44 And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.

    45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

    46 This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.

    47 And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hands.

    48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came, and drew nigh to meet David, that David hastened, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.

    49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.

    50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.

    51 Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.

    IT’S GONNA COST YOU

    This word is for those of you who have been met with very difficult, possibly even dire circumstances that require you to make very hard decisions.  The word to you is what you already know but are reluctant to do because of the consequences that you anticipate related to your decision.  But the Lord would confirm to you what you already know in your Spirit….DO THE RIGHT THING.  It probably isn’t the easy thing or even the thing your flesh wants to do, but do it anyway. There is no way but the Lord’s way for you.  Choose to walk in obedience to His leading, and He will deal with the consequences. Don’t worry that it looks as if by doing the right thing “it’s gonna cost you….maybe  everything”.  You will be recompensed by the Lord Himself.  Only be strong and very courageous for the Lord your God is with you and will not forsake you.  Only He knows the way.

    Romans 8

    King James Version (KJV)

    8 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

    2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

    3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

    4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

    5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

    6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

    7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

    8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

    9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

    10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

    11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

    12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

    13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

    14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

    15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

    16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

    17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

    18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
