I had a vision in the middle of the night of an iPhone and a dollar bill next to it, but I couldn’t make out the amount that was printed on it. This morning the first thing I heard from God’s Spirit was “sweet essence divine.” Oh my! God knows how to make love to us with His words and pictures that bring us life, wisdom, understanding, and revelation. Just one word from Him is wine that fills me with joy and my cup runs over when a picture is coupled with it.
Hear what our Lord has to say and grab hold of a silver coin and do some buying with me. The etymology of a dollar is “a monetary unit or standard of value in the United States…. Originally it was the name of a large silver coin of varying value in the German states. I believe the standard is now being raised and being established for us to finally come into redemption and wholeness. Silver is symbolic of redemption and the United States represents the UNITED states of BEING. British colonists in America used the word dollar” in reference to the Spanish peso or “piece of eight.” I see this as meaning that when we have the silver coin, we can then enter a new beginning which the number “eight” signifies. Redemption is NIGH!
The etymology of “phone” is the “elementary sound of a spoken language,”…. “one of the primary elements of utterance” from “sound, voice,” from “to speak, tell, say.” It is “generally applied to the receiver, but sometimes to the whole apparatus.” The vision was specifically of an “I” phone… We are not only communicators of the truth, our identity is “The Truth,” even having the “Voice of Truth,” and when our innermost being is filled with truth and love, we become a “sweet essence divine. Now look at the etymology of essence: “BEING,” from “to be,” … originally “SUBSTANCE OF THE TRINITY”…. “fragrance, perfume” from distilled oils of plants. Wooo Whee!
We are presently in the season of celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles which symbolically represents “the fullness of God,”… being full of oil,…. and having the fragrance of the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, not just the knowledge of truth. We can not attain to the full measure of the stature of Christ unless we are able to discern good and evil and execute righteous judgment.
Many in the body of Christ believe that it is wrong to judge and yes, it is true that the Word of God says: “Judge not, lest you be judged,” (Matthew 7:1) but this is in reference to unrighteous judgment. This scripture does not mean Christians should not be confronted about their sin.
Consider now what the Bible teaches about RIGHTEOUS judgment:
Proverbs 31: 4: “Open your mouth; judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
1Cor. 2: 15: “The spiritual person judges all things…”
Deuteronomy 1: 16: “And I charged your judges at that time: Hear the cases between your brothers, and judge righteously between a man and his brother or the alien who is with him.”
Matthew 18: 15-18: “Moreover, if your brother shall trespass against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone: but if he shall hear you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not hear you, then take with you one or two more, so that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he saw neglect to hear them, tell it to the church, but if he got to hear the church, let him be onto you as a heathen man and a publican.”
Leviticus 15: 15: “You shall do no injustice in court. You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor.”
1 Cor. 5: 12: “For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge?”
1 Cor. 6: 2-3: “Or do you not know that the Saints will judge the world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are you incompetent to try trivial cases? Do you not know that we are to judge angels? How much more then, matters pertaining to this life?”
Zechariah 8: 16: “These are the things that you shall do: speak the truth to one another, render in your gates judgments that are true and make for peace.”
Most Christians have not obeyed these scriptures because confrontation is just not easy. It’s sad to say that both the world and the church are in a terrible state of sin and lawlessness because we have failed in our duty to judge righteously. But hallelujah! That’s about to change! I believe that the Feast of Tabernacles is in the initial stage of being fulfilled and that the matured ones shall very shortly be coming forth with great power and authority. Today, in the middle of writing this post, I had a vision of handing taking off a red coat that I was wearing and then I saw myself being given a multicolored one in its place. I was starting to put my arms into it which I believes reveals that while it wasn’t fully on me yet, it will be shortly. Red is the color of understanding and passion, and while these are wonderful to have, they are not enough! We MUST have the sevenfold spirit of God in order to bring forth the judgments that are needed to establish righteousness in the church and in this world and to bring forth fruit worthy for God’s praise.
The Bible plainly states that JUDGES shall appear on Mount Zion to judge the Mount of Esau (Obadiah 1: 21)… FLESH must be addressed! We can no longer look the other way, for if we do, blood will be on our hands and WE will be the ones who are judged! I believe that not judging righteously or not judging at all, are the most serious matters that the Body of Christ is facing right now.
One of my favorite scriptures, even the one I chose to place on the homepage of my blog, is: “Unto you that fear my name, shall the sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings.” Malachi 4: 2. Is it possible that many of us are not healed and have not had our prayers answered because we’ve looked the other way and have not obeyed the scripture to judge righteously? We need dollars to buy goods in this world and likewise, we all need the silver coin, righteousness, the voice of truth activated in us and love to enter God’s kingdom and make a difference in this world.
So you who are reading this post: Is your IPhone charged and are you speaking up? If so, you’ll be cracking nuts to give the meat of the Word to others and have enough dough to become the bread of heaven…. even a sweet essence divine.
