Jewels From Judy: Master Surgeon
My child, the work I do in you is not the work of the world. I see those things that must be
cut out. Those things that hinder and those things that cause you to react in ways you do
not understand - they must come out of you for you to walk forward in My will for your life.
Trust Me with the knife as I Am the Master Surgeon. I can cut those cancerous ways out of
your being and make you new again. When I Am the One you turn to for help, you will see
a change. Some say that leopards can't change their spots. This is true, but I can change
them if it is My desire! It is neither by your might nor by your power, but it is by My Spirit.
Let Me cut out the cancer in your soul. Let Me cut away the malignant growth. Let Me
cleanse the deep and infected wounds and remove all traces of gangrene. Do you not know
that gangrene comes from the lack of blood to living tissue? Let Me apply the blood of My
Only Begotten Son to your deepest of wounds. Let Me apply the Balm of Gilead. Let Me
give you the heart transplant you so desperately need. Let Me inject My DNA into the
depths of your being.
Do not fret if this takes multiple surgeries. You are indeed going from glory to glory. This
is a process, beloved child, and I know exactly how much you can take at any given time. I
will bring you into My operating room when I know it is the precise time - not too soon - not
too late. I will bring you in as many times as it takes to cut away the deadness of your
wound. I will only cut as deep as I know that you can recover, and then I wait until you are
truly ready again. This kind of work takes time. Do not worry about your schedule or how
far along you are in the process. I Am familiar with all your ways. You truly can trust Me.
Let Me touch that wound and bring restoration as you have never imagined.
Bind yourself to My Son. Bind yourself to My will. Bind your body to the perfect work of
the cross. I will loosen the enemy's strangle-hold; I will skillfully cut away his influence
and remove his talons from the death-grip they have had on you. Trust Me. All of the
rejection and fear and demonic oppression will no longer hold you back from My very best
for you! I will never abandon you. Though your earthy father and mother forsook you, I
never will. I will bring you near and draw you to Myself. My arms will never drop you and
none can steal you from My embrace. Go to sleep and breathe deep from the depths of the
well of My love for you. Rest My love. Be still and know that I Am your God and your
Father. When you awaken from your slumber I will have made a permanent change in you
as I have replaced your wounds with My comfort, My love and My desire for you. Let My
will be done in you, My precious earthen vessel, as it is in heaven. Trust Abba to care for
you in the way that I know best.
With everlasting love,
Your Father

Personal Note: A profound work took place in me since the Lord spoke this word, "Master Surgeon" nearly
three years ago on May 22, 2006. From this difficult and wonderful time with the Lord, The Father's Love Int'l
Ministries was birthed. I believe there are some who receive this post that need this word right now as it is a
word in due season.




Jewels from Judy: Wasted Years

An exhortation from the Father's heart to yours: Wasted Years


Many in My church have wasted years that they lived ashamed to recall. The years that were wasted on
wanton living are gone, and while it is true that they can never be lived over again, I know how to take
the broken pieces of your life and fit them back together making something much more beautiful than it
was originally.

When I take the broken pieces of your life and put them together, says the Lord, you will know it is Me
because you have tried for years to fix yourself without success. Many ask Me, "Why would You even
want my life, God? I have made such a mess of it." This is true. When I Am not made Lord (Master) of
one's life, most make mistakes that cause irreparable damage. However, I Am a God who can create
worlds with a word. I can take the mess, as it is submitted to Me, and make something not only
beautiful, but of great value. I can cause a vessel that was once broken beyond repair and make it into a
vessel of honor fit for the Master's use. I can take an "unviable mass" and create life beyond your ability
to express its beauty.

So do not go around the desert mountain again and again living in regret for the mistakes of your
wasted years. Come to Me, Beloved for behold I make all things new! If you release the wasted years to
Me, you will see how I will glean a harvest from them. Nothing is wasted in My kingdom.
Lovingly Your,
Restorer

An Exhortation from God our Abba to Fathers

        Readers: While this word is directed specifically to the fathers, this message is not
        only for fathers, nor is it for men only. It is for all who are called by His name. In
        Christ there is no gender as we are all one in Christ. See Galatians 3:28

Do you know who you are, son? Man was created in My image and in My image you reflect
My love or lack thereof. You are the very reflection of God Almighty on earth. When people
look at you they see Me. When your children look at you they either see My love, grace,
mercy, faithfulness and patience or they see your judgment, condemnation, perfectionism,
apathy, and anger as a reflection of My character. Do not allow a bitter root to spring from
you and defile many. The fruits of the flesh and the fruits of the Spirit are very apparent.
So what are you reflecting to your children and to those you mentor? What do you reflect
to those who are subordinate to you? As an example, how do you speak of those who are
superior to you in authority? (See Hebrews 12:15; Galatians 5:19-26; 1 Tim 2:1-4;
Ephesians 6:9; Titus 3:1, 2).

Many desire to know exactly what I have called them to do and where they are to be. The
perfection of My plan will unfold moment by moment and day by day as you bend your will
to Mine. Do not look to the right or to the left. Let not your hearts be troubled. Do what I
have asked you to do and then we will move on to the next thing together. Do not despise
the day of small beginnings. He who is faithful with little will be given much. (See John
14:1; Joshua 1:7; Zech 4:10, Luke 16:10).

Right now I want you to listen to what I tell you. You have heard that before the terrible
Day of the Lord I sent the prophet Elijah. My Son Jesus made it clear that John the Baptist
came in the spirit of Elijah to restore all things, and yet John clearly did not know who he
was. The angel told his father, Zechariah, but John did not understand the depth of his
calling. He did not know he was the Elijah to come and restore all things. (See Matt 17:12,
13; John 1:21; Luke 1:11-17.)
Now I ask you: Do you know who you are? What was and what is the purpose of Elijah's
coming? Yes, he destroyed the false prophets of BAAL, but what was it he was to restore?
What do I desire to be restored now? Does not My word tell you? Does not My word make it
plain? The Old Testament ends with this strategic information and the New Testament in
the Gospel of Luke begins with it. So can you not see for yourself how plain I have made it?

        Malachi 4:5, 6 Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the
        coming of the great and terrible day of the LORD. He will restore the hearts
        of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their
        fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.

        Luke 1: 17 It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and
        power of Elijah, TO TURN THE HEARTS OF THE FATHERS BACK TO THE
        CHILDREN, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous, so as to
        make ready a people prepared for the Lord."

Many of you believe you are ready for My coming, but you are not ready. The hearts of the
fathers MUST return to the sons. The hearts of the parents must return to the children. In
the days to come My promptings will become very pointed and exacting. A breaking is
coming! The fathers are the ones closest to My reflection on earth and I am soon
putting My foot down. Those who are repentant will see great breakthroughs in every area
of their life, but those who are not will suffer great judgment from My hand.

The fathers must heed and obey. This will require them to humble themselves under My
mighty right hand, but those who obey will be lifted to new heights that will astonish even
the best of them.

At risk are financial blessings, healings and miracles, salvations and wholeness, and more
than the mind can conceive.

Many have cried out to Me for healing and financial breakthrough, but what they do not see
is their relationship with their families is first on My list. Warn the men, Judy, that because
they are a reflection of My glory on earth, it is time to align their will to Mine. The hour is
late! It is much later than most believe. Let it be done on earth as it is in heaven.

I Am praying for the fathers. I Am praying for the parents. I Am praying for you. Reflect Me
well. Be who I called you to be - representatives of My love on earth. May it be done on
earth as it is in heaven. Selah

Love,
Abba

Jewels From Judy: A Star Is Born!

A Star Is Born: Thoughts on the star which led the Magi to
the King of the Jews

First I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah! I pray this time will
be full of love and friendship and that wonderful memories will be created for you to enjoy
for years to come.

Recently I have been asking the Lord some specific questions about the "star" seen by the
Magi from the east. It is one thing to see a star and use it for navigation, as astronomers
have done for centuries, but this star guided these men directly to one specific house. The
star is reported in Scripture to lead them exactly to the house where the Child Jesus
(Yeshua) is found with His mother. This was more than men using the stars for navigation;
this was a supernatural sign from heaven. (See Matthew 2:1-12)

So what exactly does this mean to us now and how do we apply it to our lives? If you turn
to Philippians 2:14-16a (NIV), you will see a wonderful connection to us as believers and
the Star that led the Magi from the east. The apostle Paul writes (emphasis mine):

       Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless
       and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in
       which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life--

People are searching for the King, for their Savior, for a Friend, for the One who eternally
loves their soul. They are seeking for the One we know, love and serve. They are looking
for Jesus the King of the Jews, but they need a star to guide them! So my question to you
is: Will you be one who will shine like stars in the universe and hold out the Word of Life to
those who so desperately need to find Christ the Lord?

       In Him (Jesus) was life, and that life was the light of men. John 1:4

When the Magi saw the Star stop over the house, they were overjoyed. Who will be
overjoyed because you shined this Christmas? You were born to be a star - so shine!




May the Father keep you in His love both now and forever,

Rev. Judy Bauman




A Door of Hope for My Body
Jewels From Judy: A Door of Hope for My Body

November 30, 2008



An exhortation from the heart of the Father to yours: A Door of Hope for My Body



Precious One, yes, you are My Precious One. Please give ear to what I Am about to say.
Consider your body - the human body. Look at all its working parts. Each and every part of
your physical body affects the rest of your body.

Look at a body that is in top physical condition and behold its beauty. Behold the skill of the
Craftsman who created it! Every organ, every muscle, every tendon works together with
one goal in mind. The skeletal structure is perfect from the largest bones in the leg right
down to the tiniest ones found in the ear. Every single body part is important. While there
are some body parts you can survive without, if given the choice would you not choose
fullness? Even the stubbing of your little toe can cause you excruciating pain and in that
moment the importance of that body part comes to the forefront of your mind. There are
an endless number of examples I could give you, Beloved, of how your body hurts when one
part hurts or malfunctions. Many of you have living examples in your own bodies and in
those around you to know that given a choice you would want good health. You know that
each body part is in agreement so that you can function in your daily life. It is clear that
when the body is functioning the way I designed it, this is the most desirable state to be in.
This concept is simple.

Illness, disease, defects and injures can keep you from accomplishing your dreams and
goals, so generally you do what you know is best for your body to live your life optimally.
Sometimes, and more often in wealthier regions of the world, a person will give in to their
body's demands and cause themselves to become unhealthy. Addictions to drugs and
alcohol as well as food and mind-numbing activities that keep the body sedentary commonly
hold My body hostage. This happens when a person refuses to listen to their spirit and
instead listen to their flesh, so multiple addictions are often the result! This causes a
number of breakdowns in their body - both immediately and in the years to come if the
flesh continues to get its desires.

So it is with My Body - the Body of Christ.

My Body has many parts and they are all designed to work together. Many of you do not
know why you are hurting so deeply. You do not know why you crave the things that are
not good for you. The struggle in My Body is at an all time high because there are so many
parts all over the world that are hurting and wounded and ill and addicted.

Church, allow Me to take you out from what you have been doing. Give Me a short season
in your life to make some adjustments. I Am the Master Surgeon and I can heal you and
bring you back into perfect health. You can again be a body that enjoys health and beauty.
Give Me this season to teach you and lead you. As My Body comes to Me for healing, then I
will place you anew in the Body of Christ.

Come into the wilderness with Me and I will speak comfort to you. I will give you food and
drink that will not draw you to itself but to Me.
Come anchor yourself to Me and I will keep you from going adrift in the tempest. I will
open to you a Door of Hope and beckon you in, but it is you who are given the choice to
come inside.

My beautiful Body is battered and it is My desire to heal you and make you whole. I long to
answer Jesus' prayer that His own would be as one as He is one with His Holy Father.

It is My desire for the Body to have their joy fulfilled, that you would be kept from the evil
one, for you to be sanctified by My truth, for you to be sanctified by My Word, and for you
to be one as I AM in Jesus and He is in Me. We want you in US so that the world will
believe.

See John 14




Jewels From Judy: When the Saints Go Marching In!

When the Saints Go Marching In: Pondering the Superbowl win


       Introduction:

       This year I have not followed football or really any sports, so it was strange that I
       was so excited when I heard the "Saints" were going to play in the Superbowl. All
       week I kept hearing the joyful song, When the Saints Go Marching In, play in my
       head. While this win means something for the Saints' home of New Orleans, what
       the Lord was revealing to me was not about a city, but about a people - His saints
       (believers in Jesus). This morning I inquired of the Lord what He was saying through
       this team's victory, especially since they were not favored to win. I believe this to be
       an instructional word for the saints of God to go forth in His name and power. There
       is also instruction for the competing "Colts". I release with reverence what I believe
       I heard Him say:



It is a new era in which I am again calling My saints to rise up, "march in" and take
authority over all the power of the enemy. Have I not said that those who listen to you (My
saints) listen to Me, and those who reject you reject Me? The ones who reject Me also
reject the One who sent Me. I glorified My Father who sent Me and as I was sent, I send
you. Your eyes are blessed to see what I am showing you. (See Luke 10:16, 19, 23)

The Colts (a young horse which is also symbolic of the growing apostolic movement) may
have been favored to win, but they (those called to be apostles) still need time to mature. I
did not want a win at this time to go to their heads. (See First Timothy 3:6) Their win in
2007 was to encourage the apostolic move during that season, but it is time for them to
grow up so they can run with endurance and effectively equip the saints for the work of the
ministry. (See Ephesians 4:11, 12) It is My desire for the all saints (believers) of God to
win the race set before them. While the "Saints" did not have the favor of man, they are
and will continue to be favored of Me! (See Hebrews 12:1)

Beloved saints, the weapons of your warfare are not found in the physical realm but in the
spiritual. These weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of wicked fortresses.
These are the weapons I urged you to use when I said, "The kingdom of God suffers much
violence, but the violent take it by force." I was not referring to physical violence or the
strength of man, but the use of spiritual weapons: song (praise and worship), prayer,
fastings, giving, walking in compassion and forgiveness, speaking the words of life and light
when death and darkness surround you, being salt and reflecting the light of My love.
These are but a few examples of My chosen weapons. (See Second Corinthians 10:4;
Second Chronicles 20:21-24).

I pray you learn from historical mistakes. Anything that forces one to proclaim "Jesus is
Lord" is not of Me. (i.e.: Constantine's rule, The Crusades, Witch-hunts, and persecution of
Jews in the name of Jesus to name a few.) These movements never advanced the kingdom
of heaven. Anyone coming to Me in fear will not stay once the perceived fear is removed.
They must experience My love. I do not force people to convert and I do not kill. I forgive
and deliver; I heal, save and give life in abundance. (See John 10:10) I Am slow to anger
and abound in mercy; I Am your Standard. I Am love. Follow Me. (See Psalm 103:1-13)

This is how My saints should march in and this is the hour for them to do it! Behold the
harvest is white and plentiful. May My saints arise from their slumber, shine in My light and
bring forth the harvest. (See Matthew 9:35-38; Isaiah 60:1-3)

Selah

Your,

King of kings, the Commander of the armies of the angels and saints




Jewels from Judy: I Am Calling You Higher

July 24, 2008


An exhortation from the Father's heart to yours: I Am Calling You Higher


Child, the sorrow of the pruning you are enduring is but for a short time; joy comes in the morning. Know
that though it is painful, it is necessary. You are coming into a new season in Me. Think of a fruit tree that
has one branch that is growing much faster than any of the others. The tree becomes out of balance. A
branch that has had exponential growth in comparison to the rest of the tree must be pruned back so the
rest of the branches can catch up.


This is not pruning of dead branches, though I do that; this pruning is of a living and healthy branch which
bore fruit you enjoyed. That is why the pain is so intense, but it is not unto death. That which has been
cut away will be for My glory. There is a shock that happens to a tree when it is pruned and this is what
you are experiencing. But remember, the tree gets over the shock and grows to bear much more fruit.
Your branches are to bring healing to many nations. What I gave you during the prior season will never
be taken from you. I have planted you by the Living Water and I want you to drink deeply during this time
of recovery. It is My desire for your roots to grow deep and strong in Me. By My hand a lance has
skillfully been cast to cut the cords that once bound you - the ropes are no longer there! You've been set
free! Rejoice in that! Your roots are healthy and free to grow! Learn of Me as My ways will never lead
you astray. I say again, take time to drink deep from the well of My presence. I will never turn you away
and I will never set a limit on how deep you can go in Me. You are free to go as deep as you desire.


The enemy sought to dishearten you and bring you to your knees. But that is right where I wanted you!
His desire is to see you embrace the wounds of being cast aside - he's trying to regain entry, but I have
strengthened your heart in this past season. Your heart is compelled to embrace My cross. That is
because I have injected it with My DNA* and you are forever changed. Because you have submitted to
Me, I have given you the wisdom to resist his deceptions.


Know that you are no longer an orphan. You are mine. You belong to Me! Everyone could abandon,
reject and cast you aside, but My favor and My love will always bring you back to My side where there is
fullness and life. At My side is where you can rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory! You know
that you belong to Me and are a child of the King. You are heir to all I have, so walk humbly but
confidently in that truth.


Release the pain of the pruning to Me and I will rise up with healing in My wings. I will cover you in My
pinions. Come up to the cleft of the Rock and rest in My presence. Mount up with wings as eagles. Yes,
use the wings I have given you to soar with Me. I am calling you higher!


Scriptures: Psalm 27:10; 30:5; 91; Isaiah 40:31; John 14:8; Galatians 5:1; Romans 8:13-17; 1 Peter 1:8


*DNA is the unique blueprint - a genetic code specific for each individual life. A DNA test can prove
paternity, or catch criminals by placing them at the scene of the crime. When DNA was discovered it also
set many innocent people free. The Lord was saying in this word that He has injected us with His DNA -
His unique genetic code!


It is my belief that this is a word in due season for many right now. Its original release was September 10,
2006 and the fruitfulness that came forth shortly after far exceeded anything I could have imagined. The
Father's Love International Ministries expects the pruning that we are undergoing by the Lord's hand will
bring forth much fruit in the coming season. I also expect it to bring forth much in yours.


In the Father's love,
Judy Bauman




Jewels from Judy: The Earth Groans
Judy Bauman

May 19, 2008


An exhortation from the heart of Father to yours: The Earth Groans

Many in My church have come to Me asking what is happening in the earth. Some preach that the
earth groans for the return of Jesus, but that is not what My Word tells you. Do you believe man's
word over My Holy Scriptures? Be as those of Berea who searched the scriptures to see if what Paul
taught them were true. It is said they were more noble and fair-minded in character because they
sought out the truth. Search out the matter!

You ask Me what is going on and I will tell you plainly. The earth is groaning for you to rise up and be
who you are in Me. The earth is groaning for you, Dearest, to walk into the fullness to which you have
been called.

As it is written:
         Romans 8:19 The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons* of God to be revealed.
         22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until
         now.
Have I not told you and have I not explained all of this is to come before My return? Beloved, do not
become confused or alarmed in your minds as to what is happening around you. The earth is
travailing. It is in labor; it is birthing. The fierce storms, violent earthquakes, sudden tsunamis and
changes in weather are to be expected, as are signs in the sky. My children must learn to rise up and
walk in My power. Creation eagerly expects My children to be revealed and made manifest. So rise
up and be who you are in Me. Seek first the kingdom of heaven and everything you need will be given
to you. Fear not, Little Flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

Allow My glory to be seen around you - to be made manifest through you. As the earth travails and
gross darkness settles on the people, My light in you will shine ever brighter. This is what the world
longs to see - My manifested glory. Arise, shine and be the miracle someone needs. They will see My
glory appear over you. The earth is groaning even now for you to rise up and walk in the power and the
authority Jesus died to give you. My Holy Spirit will lead you if you will listen to My promptings. Walk
into My fullness by the leading of My Spirit. Even as the earth travails, walk in My power and My peace.
Jesus was given authority to calm the storm and so have you.

                                                      An Exhortation from the Lord to
                                                      you: Come! Walk On Water!

                                                      When I walked this earth, I told My
                                                      disciples, "When the prince of this
                                                      world comes, he has nothing in Me."
                                                      (John 14:30) Why was that?

                                                      It was because I was completely
                                                      submitted to My Father's will. I was
committed to His purpose and plan. I was led by His Spirit - the Spirit of truth. I have
given you the blueprint! Look at it. Follow it. Do not do anything that the Father hasn't
shown you. My Father will never mislead you. He will lead you into places you did not
know you could go - but if He has called you to a place for a purpose - He will fulfill it. It
is My Spirit which will cause you to enjoy kingdom victory in that place. (See John 5:19;
8:28-32; 20:21; Acts 1:8).

Do not step out of the boat unless I invite you. BUT, if I invite you - COME!

Come immediately. Don't delay. Come! You know My voice - don't you? My sheep
know My voice. You are my sheep. I have called you by name. Stop doubting. Stop
having such small faith. You have My Spirit to teach you. You have My word to confirm
to you what is truth. Speak My truth. Speak the words I give you. Don't delay - get out
of the boat! Is it not your desire to walk on water? (See John 10:3-5; 14:26; Revelation
19:10c).

Yes? Then come, Beloved. It is by My power and My grace that you are able. Your
abilities are perfected in and by My grace. My power is made perfect in your weakness.
(See 2 Corinthians 12:9)

Will you come?




Lovingly,
Your Shepherd

An exhortation from the Father's heart to yours: The Secret Place of My Keeping
Beloved, do you realize that in the Secret Place of My keeping there is safety from every storm? Storms
of life will come and they will go, but My love for you stands firm forever.


Jesus was caught in the storms, the disciples were caught in the storms, Paul was caught in the storms,
but fear not! I have overcome the storms.

Even when shipwrecked My glory was seen around and about Paul. When the viper came to bring
destruction and the words of accusation rose up against My servant, I came in like a flood to those
people on Malta Island. They perceived his sin of murder, but I had forgiven that sin, so that no charges
could be formally brought against Paul. I had acquitted him. He served his "sentence" as My servant
and My friend. As Paul put it, he was a prisoner of hope in the Lord. Because of that hope the islanders
came to salvation, as did many who had been on the boat.

The reason Paul walked in My authority was because of his time spent in the Secret Place. He was
faithful in prayer, patient in suffering, loving to those around him - especially his enemies that held him
in chains. Paul was a man that I loved so very dearly. I wept when his life was taken. Paul's work was
complete and his death was instrumental for the building of My kingdom. His life and his death were
perfected in My hand.

Many think that being hidden in My Secret Place means that no harm will come to them. If this were
true then My Holy Scriptures would be false. It is clear that persecution comes to those who follow Me.
Those who teach, "If you come to Jesus today all your troubles will be over," are teaching a false gospel.
Is not the death of My prophets, My Son, My disciples, My church that has been martyred over the
centuries proof enough? Can they be accused of not being found in Me in the Secret Place of the Most
High? Of course not! I will be with you through any and all the storms you face. My prayer is for you to
go through them - not that none exist.

Come and rest your head on My chest. Listen to the beating of My heart. Hear My love for you and the
plans that I have for you. I want to give you a future and a hope. I will prosper you. Again, do not look
to man's ideas or understanding of what this means but look to the truth revealed all throughout My
Word. Though martyred, those I call Mine have enjoyed richly prosperous lives that have been fruitful
for the Kingdom. Time has proven their works worth.

Do you want to be fruitful for the Kingdom? Trust Me. Only believe. Come into My Secret Place and see
how I will keep you from falling or failing. I Am well able to keep you in My hand.

A Time of Freedom!
Jewels From Judy: A Time of Freedom!

The Father's Love: A Time of Freedom




It was February 12, 1997, and from every angle my life looked fine; however, I was miserable. I had been
trying to "be a good person" and live my life in a way that would please my fellow man, but my good
community works did not fill the void in my soul. The more I looked to the world for solace, the more lost I
became.


My sorrow began when I was ten and my father suddenly passed away. Then nine years later my mother
succumbed to cancer. I blamed God for my terrible losses because I felt He could have stopped them in
the first place. Confusion had set in when my dad died but as I watched my mother's life ebb away, my
anger burned hot against God. No one taught me what Jesus said about such things:

        "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and
        have it abundantly." (John 10:10)

Because I did not know this I held onto the lie that God had killed my parents. I heard God was kind and
loving, but I saw Him as a big bully just looking for someone to pick on - like the Greek god, Zeus, who
threw lightning bolts at people - and I was a target! Why would I go to God for help or comfort? In my
anger I gave my affection to the world. Many years were spent subconsciously trying to escape the pain
as I partied away the days hiding my heartache - mostly from myself. Then in 1982, I had a profound
revelation of the personage of Jesus, and accepted Him as my Savior. He delivered me from the
addictions that dulled my senses and He gave me the ability to walk in the light of His love.



Three years later, because of a spiritually shattering divorce, I slipped away from Jesus and fell back into
a milder version of the lifestyle from which the Lord had freed me. The Holy Spirit was convicting me of
sin and persistently worked to draw me to the Father, but because I ignored Him I suffered continual guilt,
shame, depression and condemnation. When God delivers us from sin and we turn back to it, the penalty
is far greater than we can imagine. It is not God's doing. Sin is its own punishment.


On the morning of February 12, 1997, I was nursing a hangover and happened to notice on the calendar
that it was the first day of Lent. Lent is known throughout the Christian world as a time of reflection and
often personal sacrifice prior to the commemoration of Jesus' death and subsequent celebration of His
victorious resurrection. When I was a child I remembered adults giving up things for Lent - only to see
them renege on their commitment a few days later.          Consequently, I never saw the importance of
participating myself.


However, something went off inside me! There was something very different about this Lent - it was the
opportunity I needed to declare my heart's intentions to the Lord. I wanted to change, but honestly, I did
not know how to initiate it. Deep down I knew that God was the only One who could help me. He had
done it in 1982 and I could only hope He would be merciful to me again. The Lord had been drawing me
to Himself and I could ignore Him no longer.


Wanting a new beginning I looked up to heaven and said, "God, I am going to give up alcohol for Lent." In
that moment I knew this was a serious vow to God. When I said this to the Lord, the Holy Spirit spoke to
my heart and said, "And you will fast the last three days." This startled me! It was as if someone had
been standing right next to me and spoke into my ear! I knew it was the Lord because it would never
occur to me to do such a thing! I had never fasted a meal let alone three whole days! In my disbelief I let
out an fearful retort, "We'll see about that!" God's love surrounded me and calmed my fears. It was
amazing. His love amazed and still amazes me!


Ten days into my vow my resolve weakened. Unsure I could make it the full length of Lent, I called a
friend for moral support. This Christian woman had recently befriended me, and though I did feel a sense
of conviction around her, she never once used any condemning words or actions towards me. She knew
how close to extinction my faith had wandered over the years. She asked me point blank, "Judy, do you
believe that Jesus is the Son of God?" In the face of this direct question I could deny Him no longer,
"Yes." I answered. She asked if I had accepted Jesus as my Savior. "Yes." Well then," she continued,
"Do you believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God?" Again I gave an affirmative, "Yes."         She
asked if I had a Bible. I told her I did, but gave her the excuse that all my books were still packed away
somewhere in my garage. She said, "Well ~ you better go find it." With that she hung up! I knew she was
right, so I went out to the garage and found it at the top of the first box I opened!!! I had to laugh because
those boxes had been shuffled around and moved numerous times. God can be so funny at times.
Taking my Bible inside I asked, "What do I need, Lord?" The word, "Healed" came to mind. I looked in
the concordance and one Scripture stood out to me in Psalm 107. As I read it I was amazed. I was
reading my testimony!



         Some sat in darkness and the deepest gloom, prisoners suffering in iron chains, for they had
         rebelled against the words of God and despised the counsel of the Most High. So He
         subjected them to bitter labor [worry]; they stumbled, and there was no one to help. Then they
         cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He saved them from their distress. He brought them
         out of darkness and the deepest gloom and broke away their chains. Let them give thanks
         to the Lord for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for men, for He breaks down
         gates of bronze and cuts through bars of iron.


         Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble and He saved this from their distress. He sent forth
         His word and healed them; He rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to the Lord
         for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for men. Let them sacrifice thank offerings and tell
         of His works with songs of joy. Psalm 107:10-16; 19-22 (Emphasis mine)




I understood in that moment that Jesus was there to set me free. He was not there to condemn me. The
Holy Spirit opened up the eyes of my understanding and I understood exactly how I had gotten trapped
and exactly what I needed to do to be set free. I cried to the Lord! A great turning took place in my heart
at that moment. I repented of sinning against God Almighty and being disobedient to His Word. A great
freedom and peace flooded my soul! About a week later I wrote a song to testify to God's mercy in my
life. It can be found at:
http://www.thefathersloveim.org/i_cried_to_the_lord


The last three days I did fast. This was a powerful time for me and at the end of that fast I enjoyed a
sense of love and belonging like I had never known. I knew I had been adopted by God! I was now a
child of the King of kings! I also knew that I need not ever be chained by addictions. God made His love
known and if He did it for me, He will do it for you! Experiencing the Father's love is what so many people
in the world are missing; it is the revelation of this love that He has given me to share.


Jesus met me in my kitchen that day and swooped down and rescued me. Perhaps the Lord is speaking
to you right now about an addiction you have been fighting. It is time for freedom!!! The Lord awaits you
to turn to Him in your trouble so He can save you from your distress. He will cut through your iron bars!
As we enter into the Lenten season, I believe the power of God is available for you to be set free from the
things that have kept you bound. His is willing to meet your right where you are. Jesus died to deliver us
from the evil one! He loves you and there is nothing you have done that His perfect love cannot cover.
There is no amount of sin that exceeds the power of the Father's love!


It is important to note that Jesus is approachable anytime - not just at certain times or seasons, so if you
are reading this at a time other than Lent, please do not let that stop you from coming to Him right now.
We can come to Jesus anytime. He stands watching and waiting for us to turn our eyes upward so that
He can deliver us from destruction. He died so that we could be free. He stands at the door of our heart
and waits for us to open it to Him. If you have not already done it, I encourage you to open it to Him.
Then watch as the adventure with Him unfolds before you!


In the Father's abiding love,

 A Prowling Lion Seeks to Devour

Posted May 21, 2009




A Prowling Lion: A revelatory dream about the Church, her leadership, and the
defenseless:

In this vivid dream I was coming out of a building with a group of people. We had been at
some sort of conference or seminar, but I didn't recognize anyone in the group. As we
were walking out of the building, we came under a long awning. Right in front of us a large
but thin and mangy looking male lion was on the prowl. He boldly strolled down the middle
of street. He saw the group, but paid no attention to us. As he looked for prey, the lion
saw some unsupervised children playing in the street. They were directly in front of him
and to our left. As he started to stalk them, they all scattered to get away from him. The
lion picked out one young boy as his victim and I could see that he would have quickly kill
the child if someone didn't stop him. I yelled loudly; it was not a word but a noise. The
lion turned toward us and the group groaned, gasped in fear, and shirked back. I was
shocked by their lack of concern for the child and even more surprised by their collective
cowardice. It was clear they were more distraught by my bringing the lion's attention to
our position than for the child's wellbeing. When the lion saw the group was not going to
stop him, he quickly turned back to his original target and again went after the child.




The lion was quickly approaching the child when I let out the loud noise for a second time.
Again the agitated lion turned from his pursuit of the boy and threatened us. The group
had the exact same spineless reaction as the first time. The predator saw we were no real
threat and turned back to hunt down the boy. I felt I had to do something to distract the
lion from the child. Since the group didn't share my conviction to help him, I decided I
needed to leave them and divert the lion's attention away from the child. Stepping out
from under the awning, I crossed the street making noises to get his attention. The mangy
lion suddenly turned and charged me! Even from a distance his eyes penetrated mine. I
quickly ran back under the awning and rejoined the safety of the group. As soon as the
lion saw this, he turned his attention away from me and again targeted the boy. For the
fourth and surely final time, he lunged at the child. I knew if I cried out one more time the
group would abandon me to the lion, but if I didn't the boy would be devoured right in front
of us. I was so distraught and in such a disparaging state of mind; I had no idea what to
do to save him.




Suddenly, from somewhere above the awning, another lion leaped in with a man riding on
his back. This lion was majestic! He was beautiful, very fit, had clean, gracefully flowing
fur, and was adorned with a golden saddle inlaid with many large jewels. The man riding
the magnificent lion swiftly withdrew his sword and killed the mangy lion before it could
come any closer to the child. Praise God! I woke up feeling such satisfaction, deep relief
and tremendous, exuberant joy! I was thanking God for that child's salvation.

Interpretation:




      The group of people "under an awning" would appear to represent an assembly
       of people under the same protection. Most likely a church group, but there was no
       clear leader. It may have been because we had come together for a conference or
       seminar. We had been inside learning, but when we came out and were faced with
       the enemy, we as a group did not know what to do. (See2 Timothy 3:7). It could be
       that the group is more symbolic of the Church in general. (Referring here to
       believers of all Christian denominational backgrounds.) Another thought is that
    when an attack comes or an emergency arises we as a society are
    dependent on each other for help. No matter where we are when an urgent
    situation or disaster strikes, we are dependent on those around us to work together
    or greater harm will be the result. Together we are strong, divided we are weak and
    more so for those unable to defend themselves. The word of God is full of
    Scriptures commanding us to care for the fatherless and the widow, yet that is a
    command often overlooked by the Church. In the ministry I have learned that I
    cannot help orphans myself - I need others to help me defend them. (See Psalm
    68:5; Isaiah 1:17; Jeremiah 22:3; Matthew 25:40).




   The mangy lion is Satan roaming the earth to see who he can devour. (See
    1 Peter 5:8). He was boldly walking down the middle of the street for anyone to see
    which reveals that he has been left unchallenged for the most part. When he was
    only slightly confronted, the lion threatened the group in such a manner that not
    only frighten them, but also caused them turn on the person who exposed the
    enemy's ploy. (Kill the messenger!) Theirs was a typical human reaction when
    comfort and safety are threatened, and he knew it. The lion never really made a
    truly aggressive attack toward the group. The menacing manner in which he
    came towards us was more to intimidate us to inaction than to actually harm us. I
    believe he was making sure we were not going to get between him and his intended
    victim.

    He was concealing that he was, in reality, afraid of the group and stopped us from
    confronting him by using intimidation. This would reveal that many demonic attacks
    are designed to frighten and intimidate us just enough to keep us from taking action
    against them. Satan and his demons are then free to ravage the weak. He hopes
    they can appear so frightening that we will totally withdraw our assault against him
    and his cohorts. We are further led to believe, generally by our own flesh's desire
    for our own care and comfort, that if we do not challenge the approaching lion and
    stay in our area of comfort, we will be alright. This does not reflect the life Christ
    called us to live to be more than conquerors! (See Romans 8:37). While we do
    need to stay together, and there is comfort in that, we also need to put aside our
    own self-interests and come together to protect those who are too weak to protect
    themselves.

    The mangy lion was distracted from his intended kill by only one voice. Can you
    imagine how quickly he would have fled the scene had everyone joined together and
    started yelling at him? If he would have gotten that child, he surely would have
    returned for more! Perhaps this is why he was so bold in the first place. After
    careful reflection of this dream, it seems evident to me that the devil represented by
    the mangy lion was accustomed to coming straight into our cities and prey on street
    children. They were easy prey and he had not been challenged by those able to
    stop him. We need to learn to attack the enemy on a united front and protect God's
    children!
   The unsupervised children seem to be symbolic of;
        A) Lost sheep (See Luke 15:4-7 and Matthew 18:10-14).
        B) Children that some have forbidden to come to Christ (See Matthew
          19:13).
        C) Those who are young in the Lord but do not enjoy godly protection. (See
          1 Corinthians 4:15).
        D) Orphans or Fatherless children (See Deuteronomy 10:18; Isaiah 1:17;
          Psalms 82:3, 4).




   The boy singled out by the lion seems to be a child at his weakest, but I believe
    any of those children would have been an easy target. Children also represent our
    future. As a whole, we are all singled out for attack when we are children. Many
    people have to deal with a trauma that took place in their childhood that continually
    seeks to destroy their life.




   The loud noise I made was a type of intercession. When Regal Lion and the
    man of God heard it, they understood that they needed to intervene and they took
    action. (See Romans 8:26, 27). The shout I made sounded more like a trumpet
    that was blown or an alarm was sounded. (See Joel 2:1). There is a military term
    called, "Bounding Overwatch". This is when one team stays out of the enemy's
    sight and keeps to the rear and/or side of who is being guarded. If that person or
    group is threatened, then those in Bounding Overwatch come to the rescue. Woot!!!




   Leaving the group to distract the mangy lion was a foolish and dangerous
    thing to do. Much to my dismay, even though the enemy was thin and mangy, I
    was no match against him on my own. (See Jude 9). Though I recognized
    something had to be done, in the end I realized I was not going to be able to save
    that child without help. I also realized that my death would not help the child
    either. When we move on our own to confront the enemy we can become the prey.
    God does not call us to walk alone in the middle of a battle. If we are to leave a
    group we are not to leave during times of conflict but during times of peace. Even
    though the group did not come to the aid of the child or react the way I thought
    they should, I became the target when I stepped away from the safety of fellowship.
    (See Proverbs 11:14, Hebrews 10:24, 25). I was protected when I came back
    under the awning and stood with them. The children being scattered is what made
    them easy prey. (See Matthew 26:31)




   The Regal Lion and the Man riding Him were the heroes! Honestly the sight of
    them took my breath away they were so magnificent! At first I wondered the man
    and the lion were both Jesus. However, as I reflected on this dream I believe that
       the regal lion was Jesus; the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, and the man was
       one who has been chosen to serve the Lord as a protector of His flock. This
       "man of God" is symbolic of those who ride or operate in the power of God,
       who have been chosen by Him, have learned to wield the sword of the
       Spirit, and know how and when to protect the lost sheep. When the majestic
       Lion of the Tribe of Judah came in carrying the man of God, the man drew his
       sword, which is the word of God, and swiftly ended the attack of the enemy! (See
       Eph 6:10-18). Christ, the Word made flesh, in the man is what brought the
       victory! It takes men and women of God who not only know how to wield the sword
       to beat such a foe, but they must be given the authority by God to ride atop the
       Lion of Judah to defend those who are lost as well as those in the Church. It would
       be dangerous to sit in that saddle presumptuously. This is a place only the King of
       kings can grant! It would also seem prudent to point out that it would be unwise to
       be in direct opposition to such a God-appointed person.




      I believe the ending of this dream reveals that it will take strong leaders who
       operate in godly power to teach the body of Christ how to wield the sword
       and to show that the body of Christ that we are already more than
       conquerors. (See Romans 8:37). This way it won't matter what we are engaged in
       doing or what group we are among when attacks come. We will all (Christians of all
       denominations) know what to do and we will be more than able to stand victorious
       in Christ. (See Matt 11:12). The enemy being utterly destroyed, not just
       distracted, was the work of a true commander. Those who ride in Christ's
       authority take note.

Jesus Was Not Forsaken

An exhortation from the Father's heart to yours: Jesus Was Not Forsaken!



So many in My church are wearied and some believe I have abandoned them in
their time of need like I did Jesus on the Cross. The teaching taking place in My
Body that states that I forsook Jesus on the Cross because I cannot look at sin is
an erroneous teaching.

Did I look upon and see Adam's sin and nakedness in the Garden?         Did I send
Jonah to Nineveh because I had not seen their sin or because I did see it? What
about Sodom and Gomorrah? What about the sins of the elders in My holy Temple,
or Eli's sons who were seen sinning in the doorway of the Temple? How did Jesus
know about the sins of the woman at the well? I saw them, and because I saw
them, Jesus saw them.      The list of sins that I have seen in all of mankind is
exceedingly long, Church, so to say that I cannot look upon sin is simply not true.
Have I not looked at and seen yours?

I looked upon sins for many centuries before sending My Only Begotten Son, so to
think or teach that Jesus was forsaken on the Cross because I cannot look upon
sin is a fanciful and false teaching. It came from man trying to explain why Jesus
would cry out in His final hour, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?"
Instead of consulting Me about what happened, they sought their own wisdom.
Man's wisdom will never produce righteousness.

So where was I when Jesus cried out on the Cross? I was with Him! I never left
Him nor forsook Him. His body was in anguish, His emotions were on trial. He
was distressed and distraught in the Garden of Gethsemane even before the
crucifixion began.   Those final moments were so excruciating that even He, the
Son of God, could not hear or feel Me. Because Jesus believed that I left Him did
not mean that I had left Him - as it is with you in your hour of anguish. My Word
overrides your feelings. My Word says that I will never leave nor forsake you.
Learn to trust My word over your feelings or ability to understand.

Jesus was fully God and fully man and in that hour He suffered yet did not sin.
This is Gospel. This is why He is the perfect sacrifice. But he cried out that I had
left Him when I did not. Jesus was man and He got thirsty and hungry.            Jesus
was weary at times. Jesus was one person in the human race just like you. He
thought I had left Him in His worst hour. This was not a sin for Jesus to think I
had left Him, nor is it a sin if you think this in your hour of distress. I release you
from that guilt now!

This is why the teaching that I cannot look upon sin is so dangerous because it
relays the message that I will not help or even look at you if you are in sin. I do
My best work in people's lives when they are smack dab in the middle of a life of
debauchery or legalism!    This I have demonstrated over and over again.        If you
need proof just look to the lives of Mary Magdalene or the apostle Paul! Perhaps
your own life is all the further you need look.

Remember - I loved mankind so much that I sent My Son to die to be the
Atonement for your sins - sins that I saw and still see. Sin has never kept Me from
reaching out to you and when all sins were placed upon Jesus, they did not keep
Me from Him. The enemy of your soul, Satan, cannot keep Me from loving you or
being with you in your time of need, but he can keep you from believing I Am
there. Lift your shield of faith and quench the fiery darts of doubt. Come boldly to
My Throne of Grace in your hour of need and receive mercy.

I Am the One who loves your soul. Who are you going to believe - the enemy of
your soul or the Lover of your soul?

An exhortation from the Father's heart to yours: Be Still




Be still and know that I Am God. Do not look to the right or the left as I Am the Author and
Finisher of your faith. I Am not in the windstorm, the earthquake or the fire. I Am in the
quiet and secret place.

Your future is in My hands, so do not be dismayed at the terrors of the night. Give heed to
your time spent sitting at My feet. Give heed to My commands.

Believe and do not doubt. Do not focus your gaze on the enemy at the gate. I Am The
Gate! I will open up strategies and the understanding of the strategies as you come and sit
at My feet. Come and sit at My feet, Beloved, and believe that I Am and that I Am a
Rewarder of those who earnestly seek Me.

An exhortation from the Father's heart to yours: Go Forth With Confidence


This is not a time for the church to be in tribulation or turmoil. Have I not sounded the
warnings and have I not given words of preparation? This day should not shock you
like a thief in the night. This day is one I have prepared for you to go forth with
confidence!
It is time for My church - those I call "Mine" - to rise up and shine. "ARISE" I say.
"SHINE" I shout! I will give the glory. I will give the victory. It is My glory and My victory
that I give to you as you go forth in My name. I Am the Victorious One and it is up to
you to fall with the stock market or arise in My strength and shine.
Jehovah Nissi (God our Banner of Victory)


Scripture References:
Isaiah 60:1-5; Psalm 71:5; Proverbs 3:26; Jeremiah 17:5-10; John 14:1


Personal Note:

The night after I received this word, I was at Daystar Church in Atlanta and the pastor received a
confirming prophetic song where there was a clarion call for the church to wake up and rise up. Then at
one point he began to sing, "Arise, shine!" It was a powerful song delivered in the strength of the Lord.

The Father has been making a point for some time that we are living of the dark days of Isaiah 60 and
that we need to arise from our slumber and shine in the glory of God. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to enable
us to be confident in this calling to which we have been called. No longer say that you are not able
because God is saying to you, "Arise and go forth with confidence!" AMEN! Blessings, Judy

An exhortation from the Lord: The Righteous Acts of the Saints



One thing is needed and I desire for you to choose what is better. Sit at My feet
and learn. (See Luke 10:42) The enemy has come and stolen something very
precious to Me and to you. Satan had stolen the betrothal gown of My beloved. He
has come along and used his gift of soothsaying and lies to strip you of your true
covering - which is to be in right standing with Me. He has tricked many into
trading true righteous acts for unfruitful and self-motivated works. I have gone
into the enemy's camp and demanded back that which was taken. It has been
returned to Me and I give it to you.


      Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb
      has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and
      clean, was given her to wear." (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of
      the saints.)
      Revelation 19:7-8


The righteous acts of the saints are those things that I have asked each individual
to do as well as what I have asked My Church to do corporately. Many feel they
have to be on some important mission field before they will believe that they are
doing "righteous acts" but I tell you this is not so. A righteous act is something I
have asked you to do and it is something that may be insignificant in your eyes
and the eyes of others but to Me it is a thing of beauty. If I have told you to pick
up a piece of trash on your way into a store, it is more significant to Me that you
obey My voice in that small gesture than if you go on a mission trip to build an
orphanage if I have not asked you to do it. If I have called you to build an
orphanage then build an orphanage, but if I have asked you to pick up trash then
pick up trash. Taking care of your children and raising them in the admonition and
love of God is something precious to Me. Obedience to Me carries the same
reward in My kingdom whether large or small. Obedience is what creates
righteous acts - which are the fabric, the thread, the lace, the buttons and the
jewels of the bridal gown.

The righteous acts of the saints are not about self-exaltation or about doing things
that make you feel better about yourself. Righteousness is your mind, will and
emotions lining up with Mine. A righteous act is an act that has been initiated by
Me and carried out by you. It is not even carried out in your own strength but by
My grace that is upon you. It is possible to turn a righteous act into an
unrighteous act when one seeks to receive glory for doing it. It takes My grace to
pick up trash that you did not throw down, it takes My grace to cheerfully change
a dirty diaper, and it takes My grace to build an orphanage. So give Me the glory
for the grace I have given you and I will give you more.
Right now much of my church is running around naked - though they think they
are clothed. They are poor and blind and pitiable. You need the anointing oil for
your eyes so that you can see your true state. (I sense here the Lord is speaking
specifically to the American and Western churches.)

Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing' and
do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked. I counsel
you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white
garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be
revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I
love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.
Revelation 3:17-19

Will you take serious My call for My people called by My name to pray and seek My
face? Will you humble yourselves and turn from your wicked ways in order for
your land to be healed? (See 2 Chronicles 7:14) Beloved, I Am not asking the lost
sinner to repent, I Am asking My church to repent! For too long My church has
told homosexuals and the abortionists that they need to repent when it is My
church that needs to repent. I Am there to bind up the wounds of the hurting and
lost, but My church goes around Me and uses the very Sword I placed in their
hands (the Word of God) to cause harm. They further wound the very ones I seek
to save by misusing My words as a weapon instead of a scalpel. They have not
rightly divided the Word of Truth and have used My words to bring death instead
of healing. The Word is a weapon for fighting against Satan and his cohorts, but
My Church is using it to fight against flesh and blood. This must end! Where there
is flesh and blood the Word must be used like a scalpel in the hands of a skilled
surgeon who knows how to cut cancer out of a body.

Yes - many are in sin. Yes - they need to repent, but would it not be better for the
lost sinners to see My Body working in unity and love? Have I not told you that
people would know you belong to Me because of your love for one another? How
much strife in the house will it take for you to grow weary of it? I did NOT
command you: Do not grow weary in striving with one another! NO! My Church
behaves as if I did! I commanded you not to grow weary in well doing. Well
doing is the RIGHTEOUS ACTS which I seek the earth to find. (See Galatians 6:9
and John 4:23)

What extremes must I take to win your heart back to your First Love? Why can
you not listen and heed the warnings from My prophets. Both the old and the new
prophets give warning with one voice, yet you continue to walk in your own will
and way. I will not strive with flesh forever. Do you realize the position you have
put Me in to bring you back into relationship with Me? A better question would be:
Do you know what position you have placed yourself in by your willful
disobedience? (I do not speak to those who have sought out My will and continue
to seek My face each day, I speak to those who are walking in their own will.)

I Am coming to restore My church to Myself, and I will not be stopped or slowed
down. I have taken back the beautiful gown that was stolen by Satan so that the
acts which you wear as your garment will not be found missing, stained or
tattered. I Am not going to wed a naked bride! I will be wed to a bride clothed in
the righteous acts of the saints.
Remember this: a righteous act does not have to be grandiose, but it does have to
originate from Me. Whether small or large, if it is a command from Me to you, then
it is a righteous act. Listen for My voice. My sheep hear My voice and another
they will not follow. (See John 10:4)

Sincerely,
Your First Love



2010: A New Year's Blessing For You




2010: A New Year's Blessing For You!
Judy Bauman
The Father's Love Int'l Ministries

December 31, 2009


HELLO!

It is my hope to I take this time to bless you and your loved one for the coming 2010 New Year. I pray
your walk with the Lord rises to new heights as you lean on His love, direction and heed His discipline in
2010 and beyond.

The number ten signifies the perfection of Divine order. The Lord revealed something in my life that
needs to be brought into His order - and perhaps yours as well. If you would take a few moments to
continue on, I would like to share a very short but significant dream I had yesterday morning. I include
for your discernment my interpretation, applications and Scripture references.

DREAM

I dreamt that I was driving a car. A friend of mine was a passenger and she was listening to me complain
about many things troubling me. Mind you, I was not seeking out solutions to these problems; I was just
ranting on and on in anger and frustration at all that was wrong in my life and in the world. She looked
over at me and said, "In Jesus' name, I take authority over the spirit that is speaking right now and
command it to be quiet." She spoke with a very calm and peaceful, but matter-of-fact tone of voice. I
looked over at her and was speechless. I immediately woke up.
INTERPRETATION (Genesis 40:8)

The Car: In dreams I have found a car or any type of vehicle often represents a person's ministry or
profession.

The Friend: Is someone I have often gone to for prayer and she has been a vital part of this ministry
since before its inception. I have enjoyed physical, emotional, and spiritual healing when she followed
the Lord's lead to pray for me. The night before I went to bed, she had called. We had not talked in a
long time and we really had a wonderful two hour visit on the phone. She was led on several occasions
during that conversation to pray for me for healing and encouragement; and I was very blessed.

In this dream, she represents wisdom and discernment, the Lord's will and intervention, and the power
of Spirit-led prayer. She recognized that my words did not edify or build anything; they were words of
destruction and death. No resolutions were being sought, so in effect I was caught inside a wheel going
around and around with no way out. She gently brought it to an end. There was no accusation in her
tone of voice. For a second I felt offended, but then I felt free. When I woke up I had a smile on my face
and felt the joy of it. I gave the Lord thanks for this simple illustration and reminder to guard my heart.
(Proverbs 4:23)

APPLICATION:

While this dream was obviously a personal correction of the Lord, if my being transparent will help you
in your walk with the Lord, then it is worth any humiliation I bear for it. I do not point one finger
outward without three pointing back at me. James wrote that a teacher is more strictly judged; the
writer of Hebrews states that God disciplines those He loves and if we allow ourselves to be trained by
it, we will reap the peaceable fruit of righteousness.

Complaining and grumbling is a stumbling block to the Body of Christ and her effectiveness to reach out
to the lost. This is what kept the Children of Israel from coming into the Promised Land, so we must take
heed!

The dream taking place in a car reveals that the direction and distance we travel in fulfilling our destiny
in Christ Jesus, both as individuals and together as His Church, will be determined by our obedience to
steer our thoughts and words clear of murmuring. We cannot allow this complaining spirit to continue;
we must take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ!

Right now I am acutely aware that those in ministry have been battered by a barrage of personal attacks
that have been difficult to bear with few to help carry the load. Those who live on the mission field have
been, and are, suffering from a bombardment of accusation launched directly at them. When one has
continually suffered injustice, it is easy to slip into complaining. The fruit of complaining is deception and
this is why many have fallen into believing lies over the truth. Honestly, there are times when there
does not seem to be a solution. There is something about the injustices in the world that grips our
hearts in a way that makes us feel so helpless. We complain because it is the one thing we can do! This
is when we must remember that what is impossible to man is possible with God. We cannot believe God
and complain at the same time (bless and curse). The complaints will overtake our faith. It is faith that
sees what is unseen until it is seen! Without faith it is impossible to please God. Complaining is the
opposite of faith. Complaining exists in union with fear; and God does not answer prayers of
faithlessness.

Do not assume this means we are never to voice a grievance, but if there is a point where the complaint
turns into railing, slander and judgment then we must take authority over it. In this dream this was
what I had slipped into doing and the moment my friend took authority over that evil spirit, it stopped.
She didn't scream and yell at the demon, as some do with bravado. She loved and cared for me while at
the same time casting out the spirit with true authority Christ died to give His Body. When that ugly
spirit was arrested, I was released from its grip and enjoyed immediate freedom. Because of that, I
could not help but smile when I woke up. I gave thanks and praise to the Lord for that powerful but
simple illustration.

It is my hope and prayer for me and for you, not only the New Year but continually, that we will be
careful with our words and keep a guard over our mouths. We are blessed to be a blessing.

In Father's love,

Judy Bauman




SCRIPTURES                  TO                 PONDER                   (Emphasis                 mine):




Matthew 12:35-37 The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man
brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. But I tell you that men will have to give account on
the Day of Judgment for every careless word they have spoken. For by your words you will be
acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned."

James 5:9, 10 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been
made in God's likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not
be.

Deuteronomy 30:11-16 Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond
your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, "Who will ascend into heaven to get it and
proclaim it to us so we may obey it?" Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, "Who will cross
the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?" No, the word is very near you; it is in your
mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.
See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love
the LORD your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live
and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.

19: This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death,
blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.

An exhortation from the Father's heart to yours: Breakthrough!


Breakthrough!

The breakthrough has come! The breakthrough has come!

The shaking has been violent. Though you thought you might fall, you STOOD. You stood and
now breakthrough has come. You have fought and you will continue to fight but now you fight
from a higher plane. Your vantage point is now one where you have gained great vision. And
greater vision you shall have!

From My Throne of Grace you have come to learn all things of Satan's kingdom are under your
feet. When you sit on your Daddy's lap in the heavenly realm and you see the smallness of the
devil and his ways you have truly found the place of BREAKTHROUGH! (Breakthrough is found
in the Secret Place of the Most High God.)

So stand firm and watch the salvation of your God to move mightily on your behalf.
Personal Note:
This word was given to a specific church in Uganda, but I believe there are some that read this
post that have been faithful to build God's kingdom and not their own and this word will lift and
edify them in Jesus' name. With the Pastor's permission, I share it.



Follow My Lead, Not Man's Hype




Jewels from Judy: Follow My Lead, Not Man's Hype
Judy Bauman

June 4, 2008

An exhortation from Jesus' heart to yours: Follow My Lead, Not Man's



When a man repents of a sin and then goes back to justify it, a greater sin lurks at the door. This is
especially true for those commissioned into ministry. Sin cannot be justified! Do not look at miracles
as proof that a minister is in good standing with Me. Do not confuse My grace and compassion on My
sheep with man's anointing. Take heed to what is written in Matthew 7:21-23



        "Not everyone who says to Me, "Lord, Lord," shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who
       does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we
       not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your
       name?" And then I will declare to them, "I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice
       lawlessness!""



Repentance must be sure and complete. Going back to justify the means for an end will only beget
greater sin. This doorway will be the downfall of a man if it is not quickly shut and sealed with the
Blood of Jesus - My Blood. Sin justified in the pulpit will be greatly judged.
Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! When I move upon My ministers to groom and feed
and care for the Body, I do not have them each act the same way. I made you different for a reason,
as is proved by your unique fingerprints, yet My Church ever seeks to "fit in". Unfortunately more of
My leaders are learning from each other than they are from My leading - as are the people learning
how to react to My touch from others. They learn the motions of man and they fail to learn from Me,
their Standard. You cannot look to man to teach you how My glory will move. That is looking to the
past to see the present. If you must look to the past, read the Gospels. I Am the same yesterday,
today and forever. My ways are not man's ways, My "methods" were never the same. I did that on
purpose so that you would see that you are not to get stuck in some methodology. Mimicking the
motions of man is nothing short of idolatry, as is running after the anointing. Idolizing what a man
does when performing great and mighty things does NOT glorify Me! Many times what you see as a
great miracle is nothing short of divination. Did I not warn of the deception to come? If you indeed
see a great miracle, then who should be given glory, honor and praise - My ministers or Me? Who are
you going to chase after?



If you follow anyone else's lead but Mine, you are following a copy. You are following a miniature
model of Me - NOT ME! It would be like seeing a model airplane and expecting you can get inside and
fly somewhere. Can you get in a model car and go for a drive? I think not!



Learn My Children, learn that you cannot operate in My glory outside of Me. You cannot conjure up
My Spirit by emotionally charging the people. You will see My glory on those I touch. They are often
the ones no man lays hands upon because their faith has reached heaven and their prayers have come
up as a sweet aromatic sacrifice. It is My touch, not man's that changes them. They come from that
place transformed by My glory. It may not be immediate, but it will be lasting.



Do you want to see people healed and whole? Then bring them into My presence in sweet and
sincere worship. Enter My courts with thanksgiving and praise; then come into My presence in
worship. I seek those who worship in spirit and in truth. As you minister to Me, allow My Holy Spirit
to minister to the people.



I did nothing unless the Father showed Me. I said nothing unless the Father spoke it. Do likewise and
not one will walk away unfulfilled. As they step into that realm of glory, everything that is not of Me
will be burned up. This is where cancers fall off, ears open, eyes see, hearts are turned from stone to
flesh - the dead now live! You will not have to work in My holy presence to see people healed as their
faith in Me - not man - is what brings lasting healing.
Beloved, you do not have to lose your voice screaming and yelling and stomping around. I did not do
that, so neither should you. I was stern with demons but I never had to scream at them to come out.
That is flesh trying to accomplish something begun in the Spirit. Paul warned you in Galatians 3:3 the
foolishness of this thinking. I never shoved people to the ground to demonstrate My strength in the
Spirit, nor did I push people over and call it the anointing. These are My beloved sheep being pushed
around, so I advise and charge you to treat them as I would. The fruits of the Spirit are evident.



David was a man after My own heart, but when he mishandled My glory his ignorance cost Uzza his
life. Uzza was guilty of presumption in his attempt to steady what I was shaking - a difficult but
necessary lesson for My people. (Do not stabilize what I Am shaking!) David was guilty of going ahead
with his plan without including My instruction. He had good intentions but they were outside of My
leading. David had to come to Me in great reverence and humility to learn how to carry My glory. So
if you see someone irreverently handling My glory, pray for them to gain wisdom. They have gone
ahead of My leading. Do not condemn them, pray for these as some are My David's - those also after
My own heart. Be merciful as I Am merciful.



Please, stop looking to man, Church; look only to your heavenly Father. My sheep struggle to
understand who I Am because of the abuses of their earthy fathers, teachers and mentors. Your
shoving them around only contributes to a false image of who I Am. I thoroughly taught and
portrayed this love and I expect you to follow My lead - not man's hype.



In My Father's love,

Jesus

I Do Not Use Hype

Beloved, I do not use hype to advance My Kingdom. It is not by your might and power, it is by My Spirit
that My kingdom is advanced. All the shouting ends up sounding like a clanging gong in My ears. You
may be able to manipulate people to give to your cause, but My hand will not move if you operate under
this demonic spirit.

If you do not have love for My people, there is no choice but to use hype. You can shout until you turn
blue, but you will not move Me.

My heart is for the lost and downtrodden. If your heart seeks position and accolades of man, then you
are building your own kingdom and not Mine. I tell you now to repent of this wickedness. (See Matthew
7:21-23)

My kingdom is built on the lives I and I alone restore. My kingdom is built on love and mercy and justice
and righteousness. Self-exaltation is the sin Lucifer committed in My presence. Do you want his
reward? Do you want [to join] his sentence?

My Son came down and by example showed you how My heart was moved. I revealed My plan clearly.
You may wonder why a perfect God would choose the downcast, the lonely, the prostitute, the orphan,
the widow, those found on the highways and byways. I will tell you clearly. It is because they are
completely aware that they are unworthy of Me and in that knowledge they know Who is worthy of the
glory and honor and praise when they are lifted up. They are not tempted to puff up as one would who is
self-reliant and seemingly has the world in his pocket. They know they need help. I can fill that hunger.

I do not need hype. I need obedient children; I need loyal friends to carry out My will and not beat My
sheep.

Many in the Church have twisted My words and the words of My prophets to justify their
wars and striving for power and dishonest gain. This should not be so.

Judas tried to force Me to bring about change in the government. He assumed I would take
an earthly throne if physically threatened. He was trying to be the big man so when I rose
up in defiance to the Romans, he would rise with Me. But he misunderstood. Sin was
crouching at his door and abounded in him. His love of money was his undoing and he
opened the door wide for Satan to come into him. Even with all the miracles he witnessed
firsthand, even with all the teachings he heard of My kingdom, even though he walked with
Me daily, Judas was made to be blind, deaf and dumb because of his love of money. (See
John 12:6; First Timothy 6:10 and Ecclesiastes 5:10)

There are many in My Body who misuse money. In fact so few don't, I can scarcely count
them! Many shepherds mishandle the funds given, congregants remain under shepherds
they do not trust and then make excuses for their lack of giving; yet this all comes out of
the same cursed root - the love of money. (See Titus 1:7, 11) Many do not give joyfully
nor do they sow into fields of plenty. Instead they give out of compulsion and need, and
then hold a grudge to whom the seed is given. My Word clearly teaches not to do this!
(See Second Corinthians 9:7) Many more give little to nothing because the cares of this
world have choked My seed in their hearts. (See Matthew 13:22) There are those that have
remained faithful to use what is given them to build My kingdom and not their own. In
these the seed grows and multiplies 30, 60 and 100 fold.

Unfortunately, many of My saints have built on sand (hearing but not doing what I have
instructed them to do) and now things are crashing in on them. I do not say this to add to
their sorrow but to show them the way they must build - on The Rock! (See Matthew 7:24;
Psalm 127:1) It is My hope for Mine to go where I send them and give with a cheerful
heart, so that I may complete their joy.

A warning I pray you will understand is this: Learn from historical mistakes. Anything that
forces one to proclaim "Jesus is Lord" is not of Me. (i.e.: Constantine's rule, The Crusades,
Witch-hunts and persecution of Jews in the name of Jesus to name a few.) I do not force
conversion and I do not kill if one does not convert. (See John 10:10) I forgive and I
deliver; I heal and I save. I Am love. I Am slow to anger and abound in mercy; I Am the
Standard.



Come Up




Jewels from Judy: Come Up!

An exhortation from the heart of Father: Come Up!



You have asked to come up higher. You have asked to see from My vantage point. You
have asked to see My face. Child, you have asked a great many things. It is My desire to
grant these requests, but there are some things you must know and understand before
proceeding.



First, it is not possible for you to come to My holy habitation wearing filthy garments or with
blood on your hands. One little tumble will defile your beautiful garments, so walk in
wisdom! This is no time to get sloppy. What you were able to do in the past season, you
may no longer do atop this new vista. If you truly want to come up higher, then you must
leave behind all the offenses of the past, present and future. I say future because you think
you know how those who have offended you will react, so you anticipate future rejection
and attacks. In doing this you operate in fear instead of faith.



Have I not told you that if you speak to the Mulberry Tree to be uprooted and cast into the
sea, it will be? That tree was not chosen arbitrarily. It has deep, strong roots, so if you
merely cut it down, sucker-trees will grow out of the stump in greater numbers. I also chose
it for the potency of its seed. Symbolically these are the small things that crop up and keep
cropping up that cause you to stumble. I instruct you to cast it into the sea as it cannot
grow in the salty water.



The way to utterly destroy an offense is to speak in faith what you know to be right and
good and holy. Speak that which is not as though it already is. I am not asking you to live
a life of lies or denial; I Am teaching you a principle of faith. Speak My perfect will to be
done on earth as it is in heaven. Life and death are in your tongue. You cannot impulsively
talk about offenses and your offenders and expect to remain clean before Me. That is
foolishness. It is time to put childish things away. If you want to enjoy the privileges of an
heir, then you must grow up. Prophesy life into your dead circumstances. As you do this, it
not only prevents the bitter roots from re-growing, but it kills the deceptive seeds of offense
before they have a chance to germinate and grow.



If you want to come up to where I AM, they you must rid yourself of bitterness and wrath,
clamor and offense. Shed the deadness of rejection from your soul. There is no room on
My Holy Mountain for a spirit of offense or rejection. Love covers a multitude of sin. Allow
My discipline to cleanse you and bring forth peaceable fruit in your life. Ask Me to increase
your faith and I will. Break free of bitterness and unforgiveness and come up to where I
Am.




       Ephesians 4: 29-32 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good
       for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve
       the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all
       bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all
       malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as
       God in Christ forgave you.

Note: Facts on the Mulberry tree is also known as the Sycamine tree:



              v Mulberry trees grow very quickly
              v They are not easily killed.
              v The White Mulberry is scientifically notable for the rapid plant movement of
                 the pollen release from its catkins. The flowers fire pollen into the air by
                 rapidly releasing stored elastic energy in the stamens. The resulting
                 movement is in excess of half the speed of sound, making it the fastest
                 known movement in the plant kingdom.[4]
              v The seeds are widely dispersed by birds. ( See Matthew 13:4, 19)

                           May 12, 2008




An exhortation from the heart of Father to yours: I Do Not Scold

Children, when I speak a word of correction, I do not scold. Often My words are read and
the reader hears anger and sees finger-pointing. This is not My voice nor My stance. I Am
slow to anger, slow to wrath, quick to show mercy and long in suffering. My perfect love for
you overrides and swallows up wrath.

The cross of My Son has swallowed up wrath for those who abide in Him. Do you live under
My canopy of love, yet you hear My voice as vengeful and harsh? Do not any longer allow
the enemy to cloud your mind or twist My words and their meaning to you!

Come. Come into My presence and let Me hold you in My arms of love. Let Me transform
your heart so that when you read My Word you can rightly discern the tone of My voice. I
do not share the voice of an impatient, pushy or vengeful man. I Am fully confident in Who
I Am, so I have no need to push My will on you or make you do things My way - against
your will. My most precious gift to you is your freewill and I will never override it. I love
you and I demonstrate that love by allowing you to choose or reject Me. Many are called
but few are chosen. It is you who decides whether you are chosen or not. I have given you
the choice. In Christ Jesus' death all wrath was appeased and in His resurrection you have
been raised to life in and with Him.

If you hear My voice carrying the unrighteous anger of man, then you are not hearing Me as
I Am. I Am love.

I speak in love. I correct in love. I discipline those I love, but I do not scold as scolding
brings shame. I will never put you to shame. I remove the shame and reproach, I do not
add to it. I disciple you and though it is difficult for a season, it will always yield delicious
fruit of righteousness. Keep yourself from being offended by My correction and allow Me to
train and instruct you.

My discipline, which an arm of My love for you, will always lead you deeper into My purpose
and destiny for your life. It is in the proper discernment of My voice that will bring you into
deeper truth and revelation of who I Am and who you are.

Know that everything I do is motivated by My love for you. It's My love, it's My love, it's My
love. Everything I do is out of My love for you. I do not speak as a man speaks or with the
motivations of a man, so train yourself to hear My voice as loving. You will be able to do
this by reading the Gospels of My Son and hear everything He said from a heart of deep and
abiding love for you. He demonstrated His pure love at Calvary. Do not ever doubt His love
for you. Jesus had a choice and He chose My will to redeem you. Read His words in the
loving tone that He spoke them. Even when speaking to the Pharisees He used great
restraint and care in how His voice reflected My heart. I desire that none perish.

So beloved, allow Me to love you. Hear My intense love for you. Hear Me by My Holy Spirit.
If man claims to teach My ways but speaks in anger, wrath, torment, or in a judgmental
tone of voice, then that man or woman is not sent by Me.

Remember the words from My prophet and friend, John:

        There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but perfect [complete and full grown] love
        casts out fear [terror]. For fear has to do with punishment, and he who fears is not
        perfected in love [is not yet grown into love's complete perfection]. 1 John 4:18

Be perfected in My love and hear My voice as it is. There is no condemnation in Christ and
you are in Christ if you obey Me. Hidden within every command I give there is a hidden
treasure of blessing for you. I will always lead you into righteousness and life eternal.
Obedience is easier when you know I love you. So Know I LOVE YOU, Dear One, I love you!

Unity Through My Possession

Jewels From Judy: Unity Through My Possession
Judy Bauman

An Exhortation from the heart of the Father to yours

Unity Through My Possession

I Am building a building that cannot be torn down. I Am fitting you, forming you and shaping you to fit
together into a holy dwelling for My Spirit.

Oh My sweet beautiful children, I desire you to be gathered to Me and not to man. I have caused you to
need one another to carry out My will for each individual's destiny, but to be completely dependent on
Me while doing it. If every individual were completely dependent on Me and all their expectations were
on Me to lead, guide and direct them, there would be no more lack or wounding in the church.

I have given the Perfect Gift in Christ Jesus. He has given you His mind. You possess the mind of Christ,
but have you allowed His mind - His Spirit to possess you? Do you want the mind of your flesh to
possess you with all its lusts - with pride being its root passion? Or do you want the mind of Christ who
created all things that were created? Who do you want to lift you up - God or man? If man lifts you
then man can bring you down, but if you humble yourself under My righteous right hand then I will lift
and sustain you.

Many can readily see if someone is possessed of the devil, but can they see that you are possessed of Me
- that you are My Treasured Possession? When people look into your eyes do they see pools of love?
When you touch them does the power of heaven touch them as well?

When a demoniac steps into a room, spirits of fear, anger, hatred, and rage enter with them. Agitation
and apprehension fill the place where they enter. Even animals are upset and on guard around such as
these.
However, when a person who has invited My Spirit to live and move and have their being walks into a
room, they bring hope and peace and love. People with demons ruling them will become extremely
uneasy and speak lies and terrorize the person to leave My presence - or worse - do Mine harm.
Remember, I have given you power over the enemy.

My church (and the world) has given too much credit to the power of the devil and his demons. Their
powers cannot compare to Mine. Who will you exalt? Who will you magnify? The Lord of all creation or
a created angel fallen from My grace?

Did I not tell Saul on the road to Damascus, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?"

I was seated at the right hand of the Father, so how was Saul persecuting Me? He persecuted Me by
harming those in whom My Spirit dwelled. My life is in My Spirit and if you are willing, My Spirit is in
you. Those who harm you harm Me. Allow My Spirit to guide you into unity by allowing Me to possess
you. Do not fear; this is not by power nor by might but by My Spirit, says the Lord.

My first commandment is for you to love Me above all other things and everything within you. My second
is for you to love others as yourself. My promise to you, as you obey My commandments to love, is that
I will come and make a home in you. I love you with an everlasting love and live in you and I will
manifest Myself to you. I will teach you all things. I Am in Jesus and He is in Me and you will be made
perfect in Us by the Holy Spirit dwelling in you.

Declare My name which is in you. Endeavor to keep unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. I bless you
in this mandate and will be with you as you walk in it.

I want to possess My church so it will move as one Body throughout the earth connected to the Head
which is Christ. He is seated at My right hand and as each member of My church is possessed by My
Spirit, they will move in unity with My Head. You will then be able to reach up into heaven and bring it
down to earth. My kingdom come, My will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen - so be it.

Mercy, grace and love be yours in abundance,
Your Heavenly Father

                                         An exhortation from the heart of the Father to
                                         yours: A Door of Hope for My Body



                                         Precious One, yes, you are My Precious One. Please
                                         give ear to what I Am about to say. Consider your
                                         body - the human body. Look at all its working
                                         parts. Each and every part of your physical body
                                         affects the rest of your body.

                                         Look at a body that is in top physical condition and
                                         behold its beauty. Behold the skill of the Craftsman
                                         who created it! Every organ, every muscle, every
                                         tendon works together with one goal in mind. The
                                         skeletal structure is perfect from the largest bones
                                         in the leg to the tiniest ones found in the ear.
                                         Every single body part is important.

                                       While there are some body parts you can survive
                                       without, if given the choice would you not choose
                                       fullness? Even the stubbing of your little toe can
                                       cause you excruciating pain and in that moment the
importance of that body part comes to the forefront of your mind. There are an endless
number of examples I could give you, Beloved, of how your body hurts when one part hurts
or malfunctions. Many of you have living examples in your own bodies, as well as in others
around you, to know that given a choice you desire good health. You know that each body
part is in agreement so that you can function in your daily life. It is clear that when the
body is functioning the way I designed it, this is the most desirable state to be in. This
concept is simple.

Illness, disease, defects and injures can keep you from accomplishing your dreams and
goals, so generally you do what you know is best for your body to live your life optimally.
Sometimes, and more often in wealthier regions of the world, a person will give in to their
body's demands and cause themselves to become unhealthy. Addictions to drugs and
alcohol as well as food and mind-numbing activities that keep the body sedentary commonly
hold My body hostage. This happens when a person refuses to listen to their spirit and
instead listen to their flesh, so multiple addictions are often the result! This causes a
number of breakdowns in the body - both immediately and in the years to come if the flesh
continues to get its desires.

So it is with My Body - the Body of Christ.

My Body has many parts and they are all designed to work together. Many of you do not
know why you are hurting so deeply. You do not know why you crave the things that are
not good for you. The struggle in My Body is at an all time high because there are so many
parts all over the world that are hurting and wounded and ill and addicted.

Church, allow Me to take you out from what you have been doing. Give Me a short season
in your life to make some adjustments. I Am the Master Surgeon and I can heal you and
bring you back into perfect health. You can again be a body that enjoys health and beauty.
Give Me this season to teach you and lead you. As My Body comes to Me for healing, then I
will place you anew in the Body of Christ.

Come into the wilderness with Me and I will speak comfort to you. I will give you food and
drink that will not draw you to itself but to Me. Come anchor yourself to Me and I will keep
you from going adrift in the tempest. I will open to you a Door of Hope and beckon you in,
but it is you who are given the choice whether or not to come inside.

My beautiful Body is battered and it is My desire to heal you and make you whole. I long to
answer Jesus' prayer that His own would be as one as He is one with His Holy Father.

It is My desire for the Body to have their joy fulfilled, that you would be kept from the evil
one, for you to be consecrated by My truth, that you would be sanctified by My Word, and
for you to be one as I Am in Jesus and He is in Me. We want you in US so that the world
will believe.

Perfected Love




Jewels From Judy: Perfected Love
Judy Bauman

www.jewelsfromjudy.org

March 28, 2008

An Exhortation from the heart of the Father to yours

Perfected Love

Child, you worry too much.

Have I not told you to come to Me and cast your burdens onto Me?
What so many do in My Body is they bring something to Me then they take it back. They bring it
- they take it back; bring it - take it back. As if I were playing a game with them! I Am not
playing games. I will take off the yoke of slavery if you will release it to Me. I remove it from
your midst completely if you will but leave it with Me.

Let Me give you an example. You bring to Me the problems you face with your loved ones and I
tell you to leave them at the Cross. Then at the first sign of trouble you rush in to try to fix what
has gone wrong. This is where you need discernment to know what requires your help and
from what you should refrain. This way you will not interfere with what I am doing and you will
operate in the fruit of self-control which flows from My love.

Remember the story Jesus taught about the son who took his inheritance and left his father for
wild living? (Luke 15:11-32) That story was an example of My love. The father let the son get
to the end of himself and to the point that he knew he needed his father or he would die. That
father loved him enough to allow him not only starve, but to sin. (Many allow their children to sin
but not starve.) The father hoped his son would indeed "come to himself" and return to his
waiting arms. This gave the father the chance to show not only great mercy to the wayward son
but also to show him what love that had been perfected looked like, felt like and acted like. The
father treated not only the son who left with tender mercy but also the one who remained.

In the Garden of Eden I could have rushed in and kept Eve from being deceived, I could have
ripped the forbidden fruit out of Adam's hand, or I could have made sure the serpent never
entered the Garden in the first place! There was a greater truth at work and had I rushed in to
help I would have thwarted that greater work.

Did I know that Adam would eat of the fruit? Did I know Eve would listen to the lies of the
serpent? Of course I did. I saw the bigger picture. I saw mankind, and if Adam and Eve would
not have eaten of the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, someone down
the line would have. I gave Adam the choice to obey Me just like I have given every person the
choice. I have given everyone the choice to obey Me but it is more than that. I give mankind the
choice to love Me. If you love Me you will obey Me out of that love. What My heart longs for is
your love.

"If you love Me you will obey My commandments." (John 14:15)

In My love there is no fear. Perfect love casts out fear - that is to say love which has been
perfected will dispel all fear. In fear there is torment but in love there is security and trust. In
that love you can live and move and have your being.

Worry is akin to fear. They are close relatives. You know Beloved, faith and fear do not mix.
Without faith it is impossible to please Me but without love your faith will fail. This is why the
"greatest of these" - faith, hope and love - is love.

Love is the first fruit and with love you have joy and with joy you then have peace. How could
you have patience without peace? Patience reveals kindness and out of kindness goodness
flows. From goodness comes faithfulness and in faithfulness you become gentle. With all these
in focus and working in cooperation then self-control will be ever present. Now we are back to
what I told you at the beginning. You will be able to leave those whom you love at the Cross
when all the fruit of the Spirit is operational in your life. You will trust Me to work in their lives so
that have has its perfect work and fear is cast out. Cultivate the fruit, Beloved, be as a gardener
and watch over the fruit and guard it with all diligence. It all starts with love. My job is to love
you. When you fully receive My love you will be able to turn and love others. So receive My
love. Its My love, its My love, its My love. Everything that I do I do from the perspective of My
love for you.

Allow My perfect love be worked in your members and all throughout your life. Permit the yeast,
the Leaven of Heaven, raise you up to a new Standard. Jesus is your Standard! Let Him bring
a lightness to your life and sweetness to your lips. This way when you speak you will be
speaking My words and not your own. Be anxious for no thing. Allow My water to cleanse you,
My oil to anoint and heal you, My fire to purify you and My love to transform you.

Ask for wisdom and ask in faith. I will give it to you freely and abundantly as I Am generous.
Ask for My perfected love to cast out ALL your fears. If you have fear in any area of your life, it
is an area that needs My perfected love to be worked into it. Perfected love is perfect love in
progress. It is a process, Beloved. Allow yourself to be cultivated as this is the goal. You look
forward to "arriving" but I look forward to the journey. Enjoy the process even though it is
painful at times. This is where you learn to turn and strengthen your brethren. If you came
through the process quickly, you would expect others to as well. So embrace the process.

Let Me knead out fear, doubt and unbelief like a baker kneads the dough before letting it rise.
My perfected love is what you need to bring you out of the wilderness of anxiety and into the
peace that surpasses all understanding that will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus.

You are forever in My love,

Abba

A Season of Restoration, Judgment and Truth is Upon Us

An Exhortation from Jesus' heart to yours

The season you have entered is one filled with much promise and hope. Regardless what you have
heard from others, trust Me when I tell you that the best is yet to come. I will never take hope from
you. I will always give you reason to hope. When hope is removed then I Am removed, and I will not
be removed! Give to Me what belongs to Me and see what I do with it. You may think you have little
to nothing to offer Me, but I tell you I will take the little you have a multiply it. Like the boy's lunch of
loaves and fish, I will take your small contribution of praise and prayer and multiply it. So do not
worry about being small. Yes, you are small. Yes, there is little you can do. But in Me there is
multiplication beyond your imagination. I can take the little you have and all the impossibilities you
face and bring a great outcome.

A season of restoration is upon you, but restoration will not come without My judgment, says the
Lord. Know that without My judgment, truth is not present. My judgment is true and My judgment is
right. Righteousness and justice are the foundations of My throne. You may run to the Throne of
Grace because it was forged in the fires of My justice and built on the foundation of My righteousness.
You cannot separate them. By My design they were made to work in unison. As righteousness and
justice are the foundations of My throne, judgment and truth work in harmony with My justice. My
judgment is right because I always know the truth. I Am the Discerner of the hearts of mankind and I
know what is truly going on - the motivation behind the action. The human heart is the most
deceptive thing above all things. Know that you cannot trust your own heart. Trust Me to discern your
heart, Child, I will show you a more excellent way!

2008 is a year of divine connections and new beginnings to those who have gone through the fire and
been found without corruption. Judgment must start in the house of the Lord. So rejoice as you see
the judgments come, because then My judgment can go outside My Body, and those who have been
found operating in a cruel, greedy and murderous spirit will be brought - dragged into My presence
for judgment. There is no king, no queen, no president or prime minister, no leader of any kind past,
present or future who can hide from My judgment. There is nowhere for them to go that My eyes do
not see them. Again I say rejoice for the shaking you are witnessing in My Body. Everything that can
be shaken will be shaken. If it is shaken loose then it will be loose. If it cannot be shaken, then it will
stand firm. With Me, it is a win-win situation. Allow Me to shake you. Do not fear for I Am with you.
You do not want anything that can be shaken, do you? Be still and know that I am God. The shaking
in the Church that you see will bring about a new purity. I Am coming for a Church without spot or
blemish. I am coming for a pure and spotless Church. So pray for your brothers and sisters. If they
are found to be of another spirit, they still need your prayers. I died to save the lost. Do not rejoice
when big names fall. Do not rejoice in another's demise. Instead rejoice when My justice is found in
the Church. Rejoice that I Am the Restorer of the breach. Rejoice that I Am more interested in
revealing the truth then if My Name gets tarnished. What man thinks of My Name does not diminish
My power or My authority. It does not diminish My truth. Man's opinions do not sway Me. I Am that
I Am, and I Am not dismayed because people speak ill of My name. I am more interested in revealing
truth then hiding it. What has been whispered in the dark shall be shouted from the rooftops!

Pray for the release of My judgment angels. They are fierce, and few will obey this request, but these
angels are assigned to execute My judgment. With My judgment comes the fear of the Lord which is
the beginning of wisdom. If you want My sevenfold Spirit in operation in your life, you must submit
yourself to My judgment. I will always treat you fairly and provide for you a way out through My Seat
of Mercy.

Come now, Child. Come and sit with Me and let Me sooth your heart. Let not your heart be troubled.
Put your trust in Me and watch My restoration take hold. Remember, it is My love for you that
motivates Me. Fear is the beginning of wisdom, but love is the completion. I Am love. Everything I do
is motivated in who I Am and I Am love. Your life will be transformed through yielding to My
judgments. Those things your heart longs to hear and see will be heard and shown. I will reveal My
glory! Yes, I will say it again. I will reveal My glory to you. Let this promise take the trepidation from
your heart. As you open your heart for My judgment to come in, it will be transformed. My Word
teaches you in Hebrews 12:11 that as you allow My discipline to instruct you, you will produce
peaceable fruit of righteousness. This is truly a delicious fruit! This is the fruit that remains. This is
fruit that when planted will reap a one hundredfold harvest. Rejoice, child! Rejoice at this news!
Though everything is shaken around you, it will not come near you if you have allowed My Spirit to
test you and try you as in a fire. If you have followed My word and built on the foundation of
righteousness and justice, what you have will stand through the testing fires.

Ask for what you need to run and complete the race set before you. Being afraid to ask will breed
doubt and unbelief. It will cause you to freeze and you will come to a stop like a stalled engine, so
keep in the flow of My love and provision. Stop looking at your lack and the great needs that
surround you. Instead look to Me for everything and then all things become possible. Do not merely
mouth words of faith the way some do as robots. Believe the words you profess. Believe them
because you know they come from My holy Word and not your imagination. Believe them because
you have enough experience to know that when I say something I Am will bring it to pass. Give to Me
your pure devotion and trust.

Restoration is My specialty. I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one can go to the Father
without first going though Me. No one can come to Me without being drawn by My Father. I have
prayed for you to receive another Helper and that is My Spirit of truth. My truth must be revealed in
order for you to see Me. My Spirit teaches you all things.

To bring restoration means to bring healing, not only to the human heart through salvation, but
through physical healing. Salvation was given to you on the Cross and so was healing. It is time for
healing to be known again by My Body. The Body of Christ is sick and in need and cannot properly
reflect My glory in her present state. You have believed Me for salvation, now embrace My healing
touch. Be restored, Church, be restored! Restoration is yours for the asking, but doubt and unbelief is
killing you. When you pray for healing do not say, "If it is Your will to heal this person..." You need to
know what My will is by searching My word, then stand on it when you pray. Pray in faith. Do not
waiver. Do not doubt and be double-minded - tossed by the wind. Doubt does not move My hand on
your behalf. When you pray, "If this is Your will." you are actually praying doubt and unbelief and I
will not honor such prayers. Do not wait to see healing to believe it or you will not see it. Faith sees it
first. I have taught this truth since the beginning by speaking the universe into existence. I saw it
before it was! Selah! [Stop and think about this - ponder what I Am saying]

Search Me and know Me by searching and knowing what My Word, the Bible, tells you. Do not say in
and of yourself why you do not see Me move like I did when walking the earth or in the days of the
early church. If My children who believe that I no longer move as I did in the days of old could hear
how ridiculous this sounds in the ears of the omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient Creator of the
universe, they would never say it again. To believe that I no longer move as I once did dilutes My
Gospel and the power of the Cross. Do you believe I am limited by time? Is it possible for religious
beliefs to override My ways? I Am the same today, yesterday and forever; I do not change. I Am God!

I the Lord God, who is not hindered by time nor space, will in no uncertain terms be limited by human
wisdom, understanding and knowledge. My thoughts are far above anything that mankind can think;
to presume to speak and declare what I can and cannot do is sheer ignorance. The root of it is pride
and there is only one cure for pride and that is repentance. Yes, repentance is a cure. To turn away
from sin is repentance and turning from sin will bring healing. Repent and be healed now in My name.
This was the message of many of My prophets, this was the message of John the Baptist and this was
the message of the Son of man. This must also be your message or you are not Mine. Show people by
your lifestyle how to turn to Me in all things and you will succeed as My ambassador. Without
repentance - turning away from sin and coming to Me - all messages are lost. Unless there is
repentance there is no salvation, no healing, no prosperity, no taking back what the devil has stolen,
no reconciliation to God. You cannot dance or sing your way into heaven without repentance, nor can
you work your way in. A repentant heart turns from doing evil. It turns and it goes the way that I
have set for it. It does not seek its own way or its own glory, but it seeks Mine. My way is complete
and there is nothing lacking.

Many fear My judgment, but you who are called by My name need not fear. Do I act without telling
My prophets first? Do I warn? Do I guide you by My Spirit? You can trust Me. If you have any doubts,
then come and confess them and let Me show you a more excellent way. I will always be with you
and you need not fear.

There is one more thing that you need to consistently do to accomplish great things. I want you to
pray for My will to be done on earth as it already is in heaven and when you pray it is My desire for
you to think about how things are in heaven. John and Ezekiel had a glimpse into My Throne Room
(Revelation chapters 4-5; Ezekiel chapter 1). Though much of this remains a searchable mystery - you
can clearly see there is no sickness or disease in heaven. There is no lack there is no sin. So when you
pray, believe for My will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. Bring heaven to earth as it is your
inheritance. I would not say it if it were not the truth. Believe for great and mighty things for great
and mighty miracles await those who believe. Walk in My restoration, walk in My truth and see My
justice - My righteous judgments - come to pass. As you do you will be filled with great joy and peace.
You will be filled with My love.

Forever Your Savior and Healer

**Though the Lord gave this word to me for 2008 in November, He asked me to hold onto it until He
directed me to release it. The Lord also asked me not to read any words for 2008 so there would be
no mingling of what others were saying. If this confirms or contradicts other words, it is by His design.
I find it interesting that I am released to send this out at Purim - the Jewish celebration which
commemorates the victorious overthrow of Haman begins at sunset March 20, 2008. (Now do give
some grace as Jewish calendars vary.) The Lord also given me a "Jewels" two years ago concerning

Spirit of Haman Must Be Stopped By Spirit of Esther

Spirit of Haman must be Stopped by Spirit of Esther!
Hear O Church! Arise and walk in the spirit of Esther! Beloved, you are to look at Queen
Esther's example in her dealing with Haman to know how to deal with this treachery brewing in
Iran. This wicked plot to destroy Israel has come up to your Father's nostrils as a stench! How
foolish is this? This leader's pride is like Haman's in the book of Esther. He is of the spirit
Haman. Does he not know that the God of Israel's chosen people are hidden everywhere - even
within Iran's own top ranks? Your intercessions will bring this man's plotting to ruin! PRAY
FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM!

Go to this book, Church. Esther was a type and a shadow for you to follow. You are My lovely
and chosen bride. You are the one who can turn My head with your beauty and your grace.
Come and ask of Me now. Purify yourselves and come into My chambers. I will make known
to you how to pray. This is a love story that I gave you for instruction!

Haman thought he was so high and so great that all should bow down to him. When My servant,
Mordecai, refused to bow to him it made him furious. Haman learned Mordecai was Jewish and
so he sought to kill them all because of his hatred for Mordecai. He wanted to purge the world
of My people because one man refused to bow to him. So he went to the king of Persia, King
Ahasuerus (aka Xerxes), and received the king's permission to write letters to the entire empire
stating the Jewish people were to be utterly annihilated (on what is normally near February 28th
of the Gregorian Calendar, however falls on March 13-14, 2006). His empire had 127 provinces
and stretched from India to Ethiopia.

When Mordecai learned of the plot to destroy the Jews, he tore his clothes and cried out in
sackcloth and ashes. He got word to Esther that even she would not be able to escape this evil.
Then he relayed the famous words, "Who can say but that God has brought you in for such a
time as this." The Jews all fasted and prayed for Esther to be accepted into the king's inner court
so that he would intervene on their behalf. After the third day Esther put on her royal robes and
in her beautiful and gracious way came to present herself to the king. The king's response to her
was one of delight. Hear MY CHURCH! The king was delighted in her! He loved her and was
so taken by her beauty he not only offered her his golden scepter, but also up to half his
kingdom!

Esther, in My wisdom, didn't yet speak what was in her broken-heart. She only asked the king
and Haman to a banquet that she had prepared. As they enjoyed themselves, the king inquired of
her petition. Her only request was for him and Haman to return the second night and she would
set another banquet before them. Haman had no clue what was awaiting him. He left that feast
on top of the world.
Then he saw Mordecai who refused to bow, and Haman's blood boiled within him.

Haman was so filled with hatred that night he commissioned gallows 75 feet high to be built on
which to hang Mordecai. But the king's heart was stirred that very night and he was reminded of
Mordecai's loyalty to inform the king of a plot against his life. The king sought to honor
Mordecai and brought Haman in the next day to inquire what tribute should be paid to a loyal
man who pleased the king. Haman smugly thought of himself - that it was he who would be
honored - so he counseled the king. In every manner this man should be honored! He suggested
a royal robe, a royal horse and a royal crown - all which had been used by the king! And the
clincher was that one of the king's noble men was to escort him through the streets and shout
before him saying, "This is what is done for the man the king delights to honor!" All this Haman
said fully expecting he was to be the recipient! Then the king announced that Haman was to do
ALL he had recommended, but to bestow the honor to Mordecai the Jew! Haman obeyed and
did as the king commanded, but afterward he hung his head in utter humiliation and rushed to
return home to hide his shame.

Just that quickly he was summoned for the second dinner with Queen Esther where the king
asked for her petition. She beseeched King Ahasuerus to spare her people from utter slaughter
and annihilation. When he demanded to know who was so reprehensible to do such a thing, the
Queen told him it was Haman.

Haman was hung that night on the very gallows he had built for Mordecai and his sons later
followed him to that end. Read what is recorded in Esther and pay close attention to what has
been emphasized:

      8:2 So the king took off his signet ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it to
       Mordecai; and Esther appointed Mordecai over the house of Haman.
      8:8 You yourselves write a decree concerning the Jews, as you please, in the king's
       name, and seal it with the king's signet ring; for whatever is written in the king's
       name and sealed with the king's signet ring no one can revoke.


HEAR O CHURCH!!! The Lord your God is showing you something in this that needs to be
applied to this ?Haman' of Persia. Look at this carefully:

      8:7 Then King Ahasuerus said to Queen Esther and Mordecai the Jew, "Indeed, I have
       given Esther the house of Haman, and they have hanged him on the gallows because he
       tried to lay his hand on the Jews.

Israel needs our prayers. Those who cry out for freedom in Persia - Iran - also need our prayers,
as they are under the rule of this vile spirit. Make no mistake that this man's intention is to
destroy all of Israel. That appetite for murder will not be satisfied by just destroying the one
country (Mordecai). Haman's spirit is after the Jewish people wherever they may be. The decree
will go out for all to be murdered wherever they may be because this spirit will not rest until it
sees all Jews dead or itself is killed. Just as Mordecai warned Esther, so must My church take
this warning:
      8:13 "Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king's palace any more
       than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and
       deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house
       will perish.

Make haste. Pray for the triumph of Esther and Mordecai to sweep through the Middle East.
Write and declare My word over Israel. Pray for the peace of My city, Jerusalem! Write it and
seal it with the signet ring that I give you. My third day has come and you may come boldly to
the inner court to My Throne of Grace! The golden scepter is extended. So COME! You say to
Me, "Lord, Come quickly!" But I say to you, "Esther, My Bride, My Church, COME
QUICKLY!"

Scriptures to consider:

       Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities,
       against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of
       wickedness in the heavenly places.

       Matthew 5:43-45 "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate
       your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to
       those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you
       may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the
       good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust."

       2 Corinthians 10:3-5 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the
       flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down
       strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the
       knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ

       2 Chronicles 20:14 "Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem . Thus says
       the Lord to you: 'Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the
       battle is not yours, but God's.




DECREE:



This decree is written this day February 11, 2006 Gregorian calendar; 13 Shevat 5766 on the
Jewish calendar. This date is also known as the 27th anniversary of The Revolution of Iran.

I write not on my own authority but on the authority given to me by my Father and through the
blood shed on the Cross at Calvary by His First-born, Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ. Through His
resurrection and by His Holy Spirit, He has given me the directive to make plain this decree. My
credentials are listed in the Lamb's Book of Life. I am His possession and have been marked
with His seal. It is His signet ring which seals this decree.

The Father I speak of is the God of all creation, the Maker of the heavens and the earth. This
same God, whom I call Father, has called Israel His own.
      Psalms 135:4 For the LORD has chosen Jacob to be his own, Israel to be His
       treasured possession.

God Himself named Israel

      As it is written in Genesis 35:9-12 After Jacob returned from Paddan Aram, God
       appeared to him again and blessed him. God said to him, "Your name is Jacob, but
       you will no longer be called Jacob; your name will be Israel." So He named him
       Israel. And God said to him, "I am God Almighty; be fruitful and increase in
       number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will
       come from your body. The land I gave to Abraham and Isaac I also give to you, and
       I will give this land to your descendants after you."

The LORD will not forsake them

      1 Kings 6:13 "I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will not forsake My
       people Israel."

God does not take back His calling or His gifts.

      Romans 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

This decree is written to warn this president who has openly called for Israel to be "wiped off the
map," to repent for making this threat. Global authorities which overlook nuclear policy must
not be ignored. He has placed himself in the same shoes of Haman as well as those ?sons' - those
who are made in his same image - all of which will meet a similar end if an honest apology is not
forthcoming. Haman suffered the death that he himself had devised for Mordecai. The very
weapons devised against the Jewish nation of Israel will come back on this president's own house
if he does not turn away from his course of action. There is time for repentance. Comply with
global authorities and repent to the Lord of hosts for launching threats against His treasured
Israel. The Lord God is faithful and just to forgive all sin and to cleanse you of all
unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

Right now I launch prayers of peace over Jerusalem. I release a shield of faith over Israel. I pray
for the strengthening of Michael - the great prince who stands watch over Israel - and all who are
within his ranks. Israel, you who are great beloved by the Lord, see to it that your names are
written in the Book of Life. Read Daniel 12:1

I pray for the redemption of the Persian people. Look up O People of Iran! Your Help draws
near! I pray for those who are in captivity, especially the woman who have endured great torture
at the hands of the wicked. I launch ?peace-seeking' missiles into Iran! I pray for the Prince of
Peace to reign in Iran.

I sign this and take the signet ring given me and seal this decree now in the Mighty and powerful
name above all names, Jesus. Amen - so be it!

      Purim - Jewish festival celebrating this triumphant time: Purim is one of the most joyous
       and fun holidays on the Jewish calendar. It commemorates a time when the Jewish people
       living in Persia were saved from extermination. Jewish Year 5766 : sunset March 13,
       2006 - nightfall March 14, 2006 http://www.jewfaq.org/holiday9.htm



                 Significance: Remembers the defeat of a plot to exterminate the Jews
Purim            Observances: Public reading of the book of Esther while "blotting out" the villain's name
                 Length: 1 day
                 Customs: Costume parties; drinking; eating fruit-filled triangular cookies


Level: Basic

In the twelfth month, which is the month of Adar, on its thirteenth day ... on the day that the enemies of the Jews
were expected to prevail over them, it was turned about: the Jews prevailed over their adversaries. - Esther 9:1

And they gained relief on the fourteenth, making it a day of feasting and gladness. - Esther 9:17

[Mordecai instructed them] to observe them as days of feasting and gladness, and sending delicacies to one another,
and gifts to the poor. - Esther 9:22

Purim is one of the most joyous and fun holidays on the Jewish calendar. It commemorates a
time when the Jewish people living in Persia were saved from extermination.

The Book of Esther

The story of Purim is told in the Biblical book of Esther. The heroes of the story are Esther, a
beautiful young Jewish woman living in Persia, and her cousin Mordecai, who raised her as if
she were his daughter. Esther was taken to the house of Ahasuerus, King of Persia, to become
part of his harem. King Ahasuerus loved Esther more than his other women and made Esther
queen, but the king did not know that Esther was a Jew, because Mordecai told her not to reveal
her identity.

The villain of the story is Haman, an arrogant, egotistical advisor to the king. Haman hated
Mordecai because Mordecai refused to bow down to Haman, so Haman plotted to destroy the
Jewish people. In a speech that is all too familiar to Jews, Haman told the king, "There is a
certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the peoples in all the provinces of your
realm. Their laws are different from those of every other people's, and they do not observe the
king's laws; therefore it is not befitting the king to tolerate them." Esther 3:8. The king gave the
fate of the Jewish people to Haman, to do as he pleased to them. Haman planned to exterminate
all of the Jews.
Mordecai persuaded Esther to speak to the king on behalf of the Jewish people. This was a
dangerous thing for Esther to do, because anyone who came into the king's presence without
being summoned could be put to death, and she had not been summoned. Esther fasted for three
days to prepare herself, then went into the king. He welcomed her. Later, she told him of
Haman's plot against her people. The Jewish people were saved, and Haman and his ten sons
were hanged on the gallows that had been prepared for Mordecai.

The book of Esther is unusual in that it is the only book of the Bible that does not contain the
name of G-d. In fact, it includes virtually no reference to G-d. Mordecai makes a vague reference
to the fact that the Jews will be saved by someone else, if not by Esther, but that is the closest the
book comes to mentioning G-d. Thus, one important message that can be gained from the story is
that G-d often works in ways that are not apparent, in ways that appear to be chance, coincidence
or ordinary good luck.

Modern Echoes of Purim

The Pesach (Passover) seder reminds us that in every generation, there are those who rise up to
destroy us, but G-d saves us from their hand. In the time of the Book of Esther, Haman was the
one who tried to destroy us. In modern times, there have been two significant figures who have
threatened the Jewish people, and there are echoes of Purim in their stories.

Many have noted the echoes of Purim in the Nuremberg war crime trials. In the Book of Esther,
Haman's ten sons were hanged (Esther 9:13); in 1946, ten of Hitler's top associates were put to
death by hanging for their war crimes (including the crime of murdering 6 million Jews). An
11th associate of Hitler, Hermann Göring, committed suicide the night before the execution, a
parallel to the suicide of Haman's daughter recorded in the Talmud (Megillah 16a). There are
rumors that Göring was a transvestite, making that an even more accurate parallel. One of the
men seems to have been aware of the parallel: on the way to the gallows, Julius Streicher shouted
"Purim Fest 1946!" See: The Execution of Nazi War Criminals. It is also interesting that, in the
traditional text of the Megillah (Book of Esther), in the list of the names of Haman's sons, the
letters Tav in the first name, Shin in the seventh name and Zayin in the tenth name are written in
smaller letters than the rest. The numerical value of Tav-Shin-Zayin is 707, and these ten men
were hanged in the Jewish year 5707 (the thousands digit is routinely skipped when writing
Jewish years; there are no numerals for thousands in Hebrew numbering). They were not hanged
on Purim, though -- they were hanged on Hoshanah Rabbah.

Another echo of Purim is found in the Soviet Union a few years later. In early 1953, Stalin was
planning to deport most of the Jews in the Soviet Union to Siberia, but just before his plans came
to fruition, he suffered a stroke and died a few days later. He suffered that stroke on the night of
March 1, 1953: the night after Purim (note: Jewish days end at sunset; you will see March 1 on
the calendar as Purim). The plan to deport Jews was not carried out.

A story is told in Chabad (Lubavitcher Chasidic Judaism) of that 1953 Purim: the Lubavitcher
Rebbe led a Purim gathering and was asked to give a blessing for the Jews of the Soviet Union,
who were known to be in great danger. The Rebbe instead told a cryptic story about a man who
was voting in the Soviet Union and heard people cheering for the candidate, "Hoorah! Hoorah!"
The man did not want to cheer, but was afraid to not cheer, so he said "hoorah," but in his heart,
he meant it in Hebrew: hu ra, which means, "he is evil"! The crowd at the Rebbe's 1953
gathering began chanting "hu ra!" regarding Stalin, and that night, Stalin suffered the stroke that
lead to his death a few days later.

Purim Customs and Observances

Purim is celebrated on the 14th day of Adar, which is usually in March. The 13th of Adar is the
day that Haman chose for the extermination of the Jews, and the day that the Jews battled their
enemies for their lives. On the day afterwards, the 14th, they celebrated their survival. In cities
that were walled in the time of Joshua, Purim is celebrated on the 15th of the month, because the
book of Esther says that in Shushan (a walled city), deliverance from the massacre was not
complete until the next day. The 15th is referred to as Shushan Purim.

In leap years, when there are two months of Adar, Purim is celebrated in the second month of
Adar, so it is always one month before Passover. The 14th day of the first Adar in a leap year is
celebrated as a minor holiday called Purim Katan, which means "little Purim." There are no
specific observances for Purim Katan; however, a person should celebrate the holiday and should
not mourn or fast. Some communities also observe a "Purim Katan" on the anniversary of any
day when their community was saved from a catastrophe, destruction, evil or oppression.

The word "Purim" means "lots" and refers to the lottery that Haman used to choose the date for
the massacre.

The Purim holiday is preceded by a minor fast, the Fast of Esther, which commemorates Esther's
three days of fasting in preparation for her meeting with the king.




A traditional grager. Click to hear it

The primary commandment related to Purim is to hear the reading of the book of Esther. The
book of Esther is commonly known as the Megillah, which means scroll. Although there are five
books of Jewish scripture that are properly referred to as megillahs (Esther, Ruth, Ecclesiastes,
Song of Songs, and Lamentations), this is the one people usually mean when they speak of The
Megillah. It is customary to boo, hiss, stamp feet and rattle gragers (noisemakers) whenever the
name of Haman is mentioned in the service. The purpose of this custom is to "blot out the name
of Haman."
We are also commanded to eat, drink and be merry. According to the Talmud, a person is
required to drink until he cannot tell the difference between "cursed be Haman" and "blessed be
Mordecai," though opinions differ as to exactly how drunk that is. A person certainly should not
become so drunk that he might violate other commandments or get seriously ill. In addition,
recovering alcoholics or others who might suffer serious harm from alcohol are exempt from this
obligation.

In addition, we are commanded to send out gifts of food or drink, and to make gifts
to charity. The sending of gifts of food and drink is referred to as shalach manos (lit.
sending out portions). Among Ashkenazic Jews, a common treat at this time of year
is hamentaschen (lit. Haman's pockets). These triangular fruit-filled cookies are
supposed to represent Haman's three-cornered hat. My recipe is included below.

It is customary to hold carnival-like celebrations on Purim, to perform plays and parodies, and to
hold beauty contests. I have heard that the usual prohibitions against cross-dressing are lifted
during this holiday, but I am not certain about that. Americans sometimes refer to Purim as the
Jewish Mardi Gras.

Purim is not subject to the sabbath-like restrictions on work that some other holidays are;
however, some sources indicate that we should not go about our ordinary business on Purim out
of respect for the holiday.

Recipe for Hamentaschen

      2/3 cup butter or margarine
      1/2 cup sugar
      1 egg
      1/4 cup orange juice (the smooth kind, not the pulpy)
      1 cup white flour
      1 cup wheat flour (DO NOT substitute white flour! The wheat flour is necessary to achieve the
       right texture!)
      2 tsp. baking powder
      1 tsp. cinnamon
      Various preserves, fruit butters and/or pie fillings.

Blend butter and sugar thoroughly. Add the egg and blend thoroughly. Add OJ and blend
thoroughly. Add flour, 1/2 cup at a time, alternating white and wheat, blending thoroughly
between each. Add the baking powder and cinnamon with the last half cup of flour. Refrigerate
batter overnight or at least a few hours. Roll as thin as you can without getting holes in the batter
(roll it between two sheets of wax paper lightly dusted with flour for best results). Cut out 3 or 4
inch circles.
                                      Put a dollop of filling in the middle of each circle. Fold up
the sides to make a triangle, folding the last corner under the starting point, so that each side has
corner that folds over and a corner that folds under (see picture at right). Folding in this
"pinwheel" style will reduce the likelihood that the last side will fall open while cooking, spilling
out the filling. It also tends to make a better triangle shape.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes, until golden brown but before the filling boils
over!

Traditional fillings are poppy seed and prune, but apricot is my favorite. Apple butter, pineapple
preserves, and cherry pie filling all work quite well. I usually use Pathmark grocery store brand
fruit preserves, and of course the traditional Simon Fischer brand prune lekvar. I have also made
some with Nutella (chocolate-hazelnut spread); I find it a bit dry that way, but some people like
it.

The number of cookies this recipe makes depends on the size of your cutting tool and the
thickness you roll. I use a 4-1/4 inch cutting tool and roll to a medium thickness, and I get 20-24
cookies out of this recipe.

Wheat-Free, Gluten-Free Variation

If you are on a wheat-free diet for wheat allergies or a gluten-free diet for celiac-sprue, substitute
2 cups of buckwheat flour and 1/2 cup of milled flax seed for the white and wheat flour. Reduce
the baking powder to 1 tsp. The resulting hamentaschen will have an unusual pumpernickel
color, but they taste great!

Make sure the buckwheat flour you use is wheat-free/gluten-free! Sometimes buckwheat flour is
mixed with white or wheat flour. The Hodgson Mill buckwheat and flax linked above are gluten-
free and have reliable kosher certification.

A few years ago, I was in a synagogue, and I overheard one man ask another, "When is
Chanukkah this year?" The other man smiled slyly and replied, "Same as always: the 25th of
Kislev." This humorous comment makes an important point: the date of Jewish holidays does not
change from year to year. Holidays are celebrated on the same day of the Jewish calendar every
year, but the Jewish year is not the same length as a solar year on the civil calendar used by most
of the western world, so the date shifts on the civil calendar.

Background and History

The Jewish calendar is based on three astronomical phenomena: the rotation of the Earth about
its axis (a day); the revolution of the moon about the Earth (a month); and the revolution of the
Earth about the sun (a year). These three phenomena are independent of each other, so there is no
direct correlation between them. On average, the moon revolves around the Earth in about 29½
days. The Earth revolves around the sun in about 365¼ days, that is, about 12.4 lunar months.

The civil calendar used by most of the world has abandoned any correlation between the moon
cycles and the month, arbitrarily setting the length of months to 28, 30 or 31 days.

The Jewish calendar, however, coordinates all three of these astronomical phenomena. Months
are either 29 or 30 days, corresponding to the 29½-day lunar cycle. Years are either 12 or 13
months, corresponding to the 12.4 month solar cycle.

The lunar month on the Jewish calendar begins when the first sliver of moon becomes visible
after the dark of the moon. In ancient times, the new months used to be determined by
observation. When people observed the new moon, they would notify the Sanhedrin. When the
Sanhedrin heard testimony from two independent, reliable eyewitnesses that the new moon
occurred on a certain date, they would declare the rosh chodesh (first of the month) and send out
messengers to tell people when the month began.

The problem with strictly lunar calendars is that there are approximately 12.4 lunar months in
every solar year, so a 12-month lunar calendar is about 11 days shorter than a solar year and a
13-month lunar is about 19 longer than a solar year. The months drift around the seasons on such
a calendar: on a 12-month lunar calendar, the month of Nissan, which is supposed to occur in the
Spring, would occur 11 days earlier in the season each year, eventually occurring in the Winter,
the Fall, the Summer, and then the Spring again. On a 13-month lunar calendar, the same thing
would happen in the other direction, and faster.

To compensate for this drift, the Jewish calendar uses a 12-month lunar calendar with an extra
month occasionally added. The month of Nissan occurs 11 days earlier each year for two or three
years, and then jumps forward 30 days, balancing out the drift. In ancient times, this month was
added by observation: the Sanhedrin observed the conditions of the weather, the crops and the
livestock, and if these were not sufficiently advanced to be considered "spring," then the
Sanhedrin inserted an additional month into the calendar to make sure that Pesach (Passover)
would occur in the spring (it is, after all, referred to in the Torah as Chag he-Aviv, the Festival of
Spring!).

A year with 13 months is referred to in Hebrew as Shanah Me'uberet (pronounced shah-NAH
meh-oo-BEH-reht), literally: a pregnant year. In English, we commonly call it a leap year. The
additional month is known as Adar I, Adar Rishon (first Adar) or Adar Alef (the Hebrew letter
Alef being the numeral "1" in Hebrew). The extra month is inserted before the regular month of
Adar (known in such years as Adar II, Adar Sheini or Adar Beit). Note that Adar II is the "real"
Adar, the one in which Purim is celebrated, the one in which yahrzeits for Adar are observed, the
one in which a 13-year-old born in Adar becomes a Bar Mitzvah. Adar I is the "extra" Adar.

In the fourth century, Hillel II established a fixed calendar based on mathematical and
astronomical calculations. This calendar, still in use, standardized the length of months and the
addition of months over the course of a 19 year cycle, so that the lunar calendar realigns with the
solar years. Adar I is added in the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th, 14th, 17th and 19th years of the cycle. The
current cycle began in Jewish year 5758 (the year that began October 2, 1997). If you are
musically inclined, you may find it helpful to remember this pattern of leap years by reference to
the major scale: for each whole step there are two regular years and a leap year; for each half-
step there is one regular year and a leap year. This is easier to understand when you examine the
keyboard illustration below and see how it relates to the leap years above.




In addition, Yom Kippur should not fall adjacent to Shabbat, because this would cause
difficulties in coordinating the fast with Shabbat, and Hoshanah Rabbah should not fall on
Saturday because it would interfere with the holiday's observances. A day is added to the month
of Cheshvan or subtracted from the month of Kislev of the previous year to prevent these things
from happening. This process is sometimes referred to as "fixing" Rosh Hashanah. If you are
interested in the details of how these calculations are performed, see The Jewish Calendar: A
Closer Look.
Numbering of Jewish Years

The year number on the Jewish calendar represents the number of years since creation,
calculated by adding up the ages of people in the Bible back to the time of creation. However,
this does not necessarily mean that the universe has existed for only 5700 years as we understand
years. Many Orthodox Jews will readily acknowledge that the first six "days" of creation are not
necessarily 24-hour days (indeed, a 24-hour day would be meaningless until the creation of the
sun on the fourth "day"). For a fascinating (albeit somewhat defensive) article by a nuclear
physicist showing how Einstein's Theory of Relativity sheds light on the correspondence
between the Torah's age of the universe and the age ascertained by science, see The Age of the
Universe.

Jews do not generally use the words "A.D." and "B.C." to refer to the years on the civil calendar.
"A.D." means "the year of our L-rd," and we do not believe Jesus is the L-rd. Instead, we use the
abbreviations C.E. (Common or Christian Era) and B.C.E. (Before the Common Era), which are
commonly used by scholars today.

Months of the Jewish Year

The "first month" of the Jewish calendar is the month of Nissan, in the spring, when Passover
occurs. However, the Jewish New Year is in Tishri, the seventh month, and that is when the year
number is increased. This concept of different starting points for a year is not as strange as it
might seem at first glance. The American "new year" starts in January, but the new "school year"
starts in September, and many businesses have "fiscal years" that start at various times of the
year. Similarly, the Jewish calendar has different starting points for different purposes.

The names of the months of the Jewish calendar were adopted during the time of Ezra, after the
return from the Babylonian exile. The names are actually Babylonian month names, brought
back to Israel by the returning exiles. Note that most of the Bible refers to months by number,
not by name.

The Jewish calendar has the following months:

           (called Adar Beit in leap years)   (13 in leap years)



The length of Cheshvan and Kislev are determined by complex calculations involving the time of
day of the full moon of the following year's Tishri and the day of the week that Tishri would
occur in the following year. After many years of blissful ignorance, I finally sat down and
worked out the mathematics involved, and I have added a page on The Jewish Calendar: A
Closer Look, which may be of interest to those who want a deeper understanding or who want to
write a Jewish calendar computer program. For the rest of us, there are plenty of easily accessible
computer programs that will calculate the Jewish calendar for more than a millennium to come. I
have provided some links below.

Note that the number of days between Nissan and Tishri is always the same. Because of this, the
time from the first major festival (Passover in Nissan) to the last major festival (Sukkot in Tishri)
is always the same.

Days of the Jewish Week

Other than Shabbat, the name of the seventh day of the week, the Jewish calendar doesn't have
names for the days of the week. The days of the week are simply known as first day, second day,
third day, etc. Sometimes they are referred to more fully as First Day of the Sabbath, etc. Below
is a list for those who are interested.

Links to Jewish Calendars

I maintain a current Jewish calendar on this website. Unlike most Jewish calendars you will see,
my calendar shows the Hebrew months with the corresponding civil dates.

Most printed Jewish calendars cover a 16-month period: from September of one year (to include
Rosh Hashanah) to December of the following year. Be aware, however, that some show only
the 12-month period from September to August, and some that claim to have the full 16-month
period show only limited information about September to December of the latter year. They
show the civil months with Jewish holidays, Torah readings, candle-lighting times and so forth. I
am particularly partial to the London Jewish Museum calendar, which has illustrations of Jewish
artwork from the middle ages to the 1800s, but there are many Jewish calendars available on
Amazon.com.

If you would like to look up the date of a Jewish holiday, from the Gregorian (civil) year 1 to the
Gregorian year 9999, try http://www.hebcal.com. I don't know how accurate this is (especially
given that during the earlier dates, months were determined by observation), but I haven't caught
any mistakes in it yet. Of course, the earlier Gregorian dates are artificial, since the Gregorian
calendar did not exist until the 16th century and was not accepted in many parts of the world
until much later (they used the less accurate Julian calendar). There is also a very nice, quick and
easy converter to and from Hebrew dates on Chabad's website.

If you would like to make your own computerized Jewish calendar, my page on The Jewish

The basics of the Jewish calendar were explained on the previous page, and will be mentioned
only in passing here. This page is intended for those who are interested in a deeper understanding
of the workings of Rabbi Hillel II's fixed calendar, or those who want to be able to build their
own Jewish calendar computer programs.

Although this page will focus primarily on calendar calculations, I encourage you not to dismiss
this as purely a mathematical exercise devoid of spiritual value. The sages emphasized the value
of studying astronomy as a way of appreciating the greatness of the Creator's work. This page
does focus on some arcane mathematics, but do not be intimidated by it: the Jewish scholar
Rambam wrote that, "the method of the fixed calendar is one which an average school child can
master in 3 or 4 days." (Hilkhot Qiddush HaHodesh 11:4). A lot of the confusion people
experience stems from variations in the way different sources say the same thing, and the way
some sources use familiar terms to mean unfamiliar things. I will do my best to keep these
variations straight for you.

This page includes JavaScript that performs all of the calculations described, in the order that the
concepts are presented here and with detailed comments. Those who are comfortable with
programming languages may find it faster and easier to understand the math by looking at the
code. This code is not necessarily the best or most efficient script possible, but it's not intended
to be; it's intended to illustrate how the calendar is calculated. Despite the inefficiency of this
code, I have no doubt that it will be appearing on other websites in short order. Would it kill you
to give me credit and a link back?

Calendar Essentials

The Jewish calendar is based on three astronomical phenomena: the rotation of the Earth about
its axis (a day); the revolution of the moon about the Earth (a month); and the revolution of the
Earth about the sun (a year). These three phenomena are independent of each other, so there is no
direct correlation between them. On average, the moon revolves around the Earth in about 29½
days. The Earth revolves around the sun in about 365¼ days, that is, about 12 lunar months and
11 days.

To coordinate these three phenomena, and to accommodate certain ritual requirements, the
Jewish calendar consists of 12 or 13 months of 29 or 30 days, and can be 353, 354, 355, 383, 384
or 385 days long. The keystone of the calendar is the new moon, referred to in Hebrew as the
molad.

A new month on the Jewish calendar begins with the molad, (pronounced moh-LAHD). Molad is
a Hebrew word meaning "birth," and refers to what we call the "new moon" in English. The
molad for the month of Tishri (the month that starts with Rosh Hashanah) is the most important
one for calendar calculations, and is referred to as Molad Tishri.

Note that the calculated molad does not necessarily correspond precisely to the astronomical new
moon. The length of time from one astronomical new moon to the next varies somewhat because
of the eccentric orbits of the Earth and Moon; however, the moladot of Rabbi Hillel's calendar
are set using a fixed average length of time: 29 days, 12 hours, and 793 "parts" (or in Hebrew,
chalakim). The amount of time is commonly written in an abbreviated form: 29d 12h 793p.

A "part" (or in Hebrew, cheilek) is a unit of time used in the Jewish calendar, equal to 3-1/3
seconds. There are 18 parts in a minute and 1,080 parts in an hour. Most sources express time
from calendar calculations in days, hours and parts, although some sources break the parts down
into minutes. For example, the period between moladot could be written as 29 days, 12 hours, 44
minutes and 1 part (29d 12h 44m 1p), because 793 parts is 44 minutes and 1 part (793 = 44 times
18 parts plus 1 part) . This makes the resulting times look somewhat more familiar, but it
increases the number of calculations, so we will stick with days, hours and parts.

The same shorthand can be used to express the time when a molad occurs. The time is normally
expressed as a day of the week, along with the hours and parts (or hours, minutes and parts). For
example, the time of a molad might be expressed as 2d 12h 1005p (or 2d 12h 55m 15p), meaning
that it occurs on Monday (the second day) at the 12th hour and 1005 parts.

The "hours" used to calculate the molad are standard 1/24 of a day hours. Note that this differs
from the "hours" used for ritual scheduling, which are 1/12 of the time from sunrise to sunset.
For example, at Pesach (Passover), we are required to stop eating chametz at the end of the
"fourth hour "of the morning on Nissan 14, that is, at the end of 1/3 of the time between sunrise
and sunset. These "seasonal hours" vary depending on the time of the year; molad hours are
constant. The time for the molad is Jerusalem Solar Time, which is not necessarily the same as
your local time. It is also not necessarily the same as the time on the clock, even in Jerusalem.
This fact has no effect on your calculations, but is worth knowing.

The Jewish "day" starts at sunset, rather than at midnight. If you read the story of creation in
Genesis Ch. 1, you will notice that it says, "And there was evening, and there was morning, one
day." From this, we infer that a day begins with evening, that is, at sunset. Accordingly, most
sources discussing the molad use 6PM of the preceding evening as the "zero hour." In our
example, 2d 12h 1005p, the 12h means the 12th hour after 6PM, that is, 6AM. If a molad occurs
at 2d 4h 0p, this means that it occurs at 10PM on Sunday night, because the second day
(Monday) begins at 6PM of the preceding evening (Sunday). Some sources, however, use the
more familiar Western conventions and use midnight as the zero hour. Be very careful to check
which system is being used when you rely on times given by any source! If the time is referred to
as "Rambam time" or something similar, then you know it uses 6PM as the zero hour. On this
page, I am using Rambam time, but some well-respected Orthodox sources in America use
midnight as their zero hour. As long as you are consistent, you will get the same result under
either system.

Calculating the Calendar

Here is an overview of the steps involved in calculating the date of Rosh Hashanah on the Jewish
calendar:

   1. Start with a known molad (and the corresponding secular date, if you wish to convert your
      resulting date to a secular date).
   2. Determine the number of months between the known molad and Tishri of the year of the date
      you are calculating.
   3. Multiply the number of months by the length of the molad: 29d 12h 793p.
   4. Add the result to the known starting molad.
   5. Apply the dechiyot (rules of postponement) to determine the date of Rosh Hashanah for the
      year of your date.
   6. To get the secular date, add the number of days elapsed calculated above to the secular starting
      date.

If you want to calculate a date other than Rosh Hashanah, you will have to calculate either that
year's Rosh Hashanah, the following year's Rosh Hashanah or both and use this information to
work out the date.

We will now look at these steps in detail, illustrating the techniques by calculating the dates of
Rosh Hashanah and Pesach (Passover) in the year 5775 (2014-2015) using 5732 as our starting
point. As I said above, if you are comfortable with JavaScript, you may find that it is faster and
easier to understand these concepts by viewing my code here. This code is designed to illustrate
calendar principles and is not the most efficient code possible. If you choose to use it in your
own work despite this warning, would it kill you to give me credit and a link back?

Step 1: Start with a Known Molad

To perform any calculations on the Jewish calendar, you need a starting point, preferably the
molad of Tishri for a specific year, along with the corresponding secular date if you want to be
able to convert the Hebrew date to secular. It is not possible to work out a molad from first
principles, because the first molad of creation (known as Molad Tohu) did not occur at 0d 0h 0p!

I like to base my calculations on the molad of Tishri 5732, which occurred at 2d 7h 743p (using
6PM as the zero hour), and corresponded to the secular date September 20, 1971. I use this
particular year because it is the first Molad Tishri after 1/1/1970 (Javascript's 0 date) that is not
subject to dechiyot (postponements), which complicate secular date conversions. If you will be
calculating dates in the past and would like to avoid the complications of subtracting dates, you
may prefer to work with an earlier molad, such as Tishri 5661 (9/24/1900), 2d 11h 9p, or even
Molad Tishri 5558 (9/21/1797), 5d 11h 607p. I'm sure our Christian friends are primarily
interested in knowing Molad Tishri 3762 (the year 1), or some other year in that lifetime.
Unfortunately, the program I use to calculate molads overflows after 3861 (the year 100), so
you'll have to work out the rest yourself: Molad Tishri 3869 (9/22/108, the earliest one I can
work out that is not subject to postponements) is 7d 8h 957p. A more interesting base from my
perspective is Molad Tishri 4120 (9/10/359), 5d 8h 29p, which is the first non-postponed year
after Rabbi Hillel II developed this calendar! Any calculations before that calendar was
developed do not necessarily correspond to what people in those times observed. In addition, it is
very complicated to convert a Hebrew date to a secular date before the Gregorian calendar
reforms, which took effect at different times in different countries (introduced in 1582 but not
adopted in America until 1752!).

Step 2: Determine the Number of Months to Tishri of Your Year

The next step is to determine how many months are between your starting point and Tishri of the
year of your end point. There are exactly 235 months in every 19-year cycle of leap years (12 12-
month years plus 7 13-month years), but if your number of years is not evenly divisible by 19,
then you will have to determine whether each remaining year is a regular year (12 months) or a
leap year (13 months).

Fortunately, the leap year cycle is easily calculated. Leap years occur in years 3, 6, 8, 11, 14, 17
and 19 of a 19-year cycle, and the 19-year cycle begins in the year 1, so you can simply divide
the year number by 19 and examine the remainder. If the remainder is 3, 6, 8, 11, 14, 17 or 0 (the
19th year of the cycle) then the year is a leap year. Otherwise, it is not.

There are two cycles between 5732 and 5775, with a remainder of 5 years (5775 - 5732 / 19 = 2
remainder 5), that is 470 months from 5732 to 5770. The remaining months before 5775 are:

Year   Divided by 19    Leap Year? Months

5770 303 remainder 13 No            12

5771 303 remainder 14 Yes           13

5772 303 remainder 15 No            12

5773 303 remainder 16 No            12

5774 303 remainder 17 Yes           13

               Plus 2 cycles (2*235) 470
                               Total 532



Step 3: Multiply the Number of Months by the Length of the Molad

Next, we multiply the number of months by the average length of the molad, which is 29d 12h
793p:

      793p * 532 = 421,876p
      12h * 532 = 6,384h
      29d * 532 = 15,428d

Of course, we will then have to round up the smaller units into the larger units, just as we would
round 75 minutes into 1 hour and 15 minutes. Here are the stages of this rounding:

      421,876 parts / 1,080 parts per hour = 390 hours remainder 676 parts
      (6,384 multiplied hours + 390 rounded hours) / 24 hours per day = 282 days remainder 6 hours
      15,428 multiplied days + 282 rounded days = 15,710 days

We now know the amount of time between our starting molad and our ending molad: 15,710d 6h
676p

Step 4: Add the Result to the Starting Molad

Next, we add the elapsed time calculated above to the starting date to get the ending date. Our
starting molad is 2d 12h 1005p (using 6PM as 0h). We will not add the days yet, for reasons that
will soon become clear.

      676 elapsed parts + 743 starting parts = 1,419 parts
      6 elapsed hours + 7 starting hours = 13 hours

Now we need to do some more rounding:

      1,419 calculated parts / 1,080 parts per hour = 1 hour remainder 339 parts
      13 calculated hours + 1 rounded hour / 24 hours per day = 0 days remainder 14 hours
      15,710 calculated days + 0 rounded days = 15,710 days

At this point, we should note the number of days elapsed between our starting point and our
ending point: 15,710 days. We must note this at this point in the calculation, after the hours are
rounded into the days but before the weekday of the starting molad is added to the number of
days. This number of days will be necessary to determine the Gregorian date. Note that if the
hours are more than 24 at this point, you will need to round those hours into the days to get the
elapsed time. In this calculation, however, the number of hours is only 14.

Let's finish the calculation of the molad, adding the days and determining the day of the week:
      (15,710 calculated days + 2 starting days) / 7 days per week = 2244 weeks remainder 4 days

The remainder of 4 days gives us the day of the week for our molad, so the resulting molad is: 4d
14h 339p, that is, Wednesday in the 14th hour (8 am) and 339 parts, with 15,710 elapsed days.
Note that if the remainder is 0 days, the molad is 7d (Shabbat), because 7 days / 7 days per week
= 1 week remainder 0 days.

Step 5: Apply the Dechiyot

There are four rules of postponement known as dechiyot, pronounced d'-khee-YOHT, where
"kh" is a throat-clearing noise (singular: dechiyah). These rules postpone the date of Rosh
Hashanah, but do not affect the calculated time of the molad. One of the dechiyot is a general
rule of rounding while the rest are designed to prevent oddities in the length of the year and the
date of Rosh Hashanah.

Dechiyah 1: Molad Zakein

The first dechiyah is molad zakein, meaning an "old" molad. If the molad occurs at or after noon
(that is, 18h where 6PM is 0h or 12h where midnight is 0h), the molad is considered to be "old"
and we round to the next day. This rule is quite commonly applied, affecting a quarter of all
years (half if you use midnight as the 0 hour).

If noon seems a bit early to be considering the molad "old," remember that the Jewish "day"
starts at sunset. The rule of molad zakein simply means that a molad at or after noon relates to
the "day" that starts at the next sunset (4-10 hours later) rather than the previous sunset (14-20
hours earlier). This rationale is clear from the Rambam notation, where 6PM is 0h and a Molad
Zakein is one that occurs at or after 18h in a 24h day.

Interestingly, Molad Zakein is the reason why you will get the same result regardless of whether
you use 6PM or midnight as your zero hour. With midnight as your zero hour, Molad Zakein
applies to molads after 12h, applying in half of all years. With 6PM as your zero hour, Molad
Zakein only applies in one quarter of all years, but molads between 6PM and midnight are
already considered to be part of the next day, so the result is the same!

Our molad occurs at 14h in Rambam notation, so it is not a molad zakein and Rosh Hashanah
stays on the calculated date for now.

Note that when dechiyot like this apply, a day must be added to the elapsed time for purposes of
calculating the Gregorian equivalent date, but the molad does not change. The unchanged molad
is used for purposes of calculating subsequent years and for certain religious purposes. For
example, in 5760, the calculated molad was 6d 21h 801p. Molad Zakein pushed Rosh Hashanah
to the next day, but if you were to calculate a subsequent date using 5760 as your base, you
would calculate from 6d (Friday), not from Saturday. This is why it is best to start with a molad
that is not subject to postponements.

Dechiyah 2: Lo A"DU Rosh
The second dechiyah is known as Lo A"DU or Lo A"DU Rosh. This rule states
that Rosh Hashanah cannot occur on a Sunday (Day 1), a Wednesday (Day 4) or a
Friday (Day 6). The word Lo means "Not," and the word A"DU is a way of
pronouncing Alef-Dalet-Vav, letters with the numerical values 1, 4 and 6 (see Hebrew Alphabet
- Numerical Values). If the calculated molad occurs on one of these days of the week, Rosh
Hashanah is postponed by a day to prevent other problems with the calendar. If Rosh Hashanah
fell on a Wednesday or Friday, then Yom Kippur would fall on a Friday or Sunday, which is
undesirable. If Rosh Hashanah fell on a Sunday, the Hoshanah Rabbah would fall on a Saturday,
making it impossible to observe some of the day's customs.

This dechiyah is also commonly applied, as you might imagine. It applies to three out of seven
days, so one would expect it to occur almost half of the time.

Note that the dechiyot of molad zakein and Lo A"DU Rosh can work in combination: a molad at
5d 19h 0m 0p (Thursday at 1PM) is rounded to Friday by the rule of Molad Zakein, then
postponed to Saturday by the rule of Lo A"DU Rosh, even though the original molad was on a
valid day of the week. On the other hand, a molad at 4d 19h 0m 0p (Wednesday at 1PM) is
rounded to Thursday by Molad Zakein, and Lo A"DU Rosh does not apply: even though the
molad occurred on Wednesday, Molad Zakein has already moved it off of that date so Lo A"DU
Rosh is not necessary. This is why the rule of Molad Zakein must be checked before the rule of
Lo A"DU Rosh.

Our molad occurs on 4d, Wednesday, so it is postponed to Thursday. You should add 1 to your
elapsed time so your secular date conversion will be correct. There are now 15,711 elapsed days.

Dechiyah 3: Gatarad

The remaining two dechiyot are much less commonly applied.

Dechiyah Gatarad holds that if Molad Tishri in a simple (12-month, non-leap) year occurs on a
Tuesday at 9h 204p or later, Rosh Hashanah is postponed to the next day (a Wednesday, which
by the effect of Lo A"DU Rosh would then be postponed to Thursday).

The name, Gatarad, is a mnemonic for the rule. In Hebrew, Gatarad it is
spelled Gimel-Teit-Reish-Dalet. Using letters as numerals, Gimel is 3, and
represents Tuesday. Teit is 9 and represents the 9th hour (that is, 9h in
Rambam notation, but 3h in midnight-based notation). Reish is 200 and Dalet is 4, representing
204 parts.

Why does such a complicated rule exist? This rule prevents the possibility that a year might be
356 days, an invalid length. Consider: a Molad Tishri at 3d 9h 204p would not be postponed by
Molad Zakein or Lo A"DU Rosh. Add 12 lunar cycles (354d 8h 876p) to the next year's Rosh
Hashanah and you get 7d 18h 0p with 354 days elapsed. Molad Zakein applies to the following
year, postponing Rosh Hashanah to the next day, a Sunday, with 355 days elapsed. Lo A"DU
Rosh is then triggered, postponing Rosh Hashanah and leaving 356 days elapsed and making the
current year an invalid length. Gatarad takes days away from the following year and adds them
to the preceding year, so both years are a valid length.

Note that Gatarad invariably triggers Lo A"DU Rosh. Gatarad only applies when Rosh Hashanah
is Tuesday and Gatarad postpones Rosh Hashanah to Wednesday. Lo A"DU Rosh then
postpones Rosh Hashanah to Thursday. Some programmers like to check Gatarad before
checking Lo A"DU Rosh; others check Gatarad after Lo A"DU Rosh but use this rule to add two
days (the Gatarad day plus the resulting Lo A"DU Rosh day). Either way, if Gatarad applies,
Rosh Hashanah falls on Thursday.

Note also that this rule is not combined with Molad Zakein. If Molad Zakein applies to the
current year, Gatarad is unnecessary; thus Gatarad applies only to molads between 9h 204p and
17h 1079p.

As you might imagine, this rule is not commonly applied. It applies only in non-leap years (12
out of 19 years) when the molad occurs on Tuesday (1 out of 7 days) between the 9th hour and
the 18th hour (9 out of 24 hours). It occurs about three times a century. It last occurred in 5745
(1984-85) and will not occur again until 5796 (2035-36).

Dechiyah 4: Betutkafot

Like Dechiyah Gatarad, this rule is not very commonly applied and is designed to prevent a year
from having an invalid length. Dechiyah Betutkafot prevents a leap-year from having 382 days
(too few days) by postponing Rosh Hashanah of the non-leap year following the leap year.

Also like Dechiyah Gatarad, the name of the rule tells you how it is
calculated: if Molad Tishri in a year following a leap year occurs on
Monday (Beit, 2) after the 15th hour (Teit-Vav, 15 in Rambam
notation, but 9h in midnight-based notation) and 589 parts (Tav-Kaf-Pei-Teit, 589), then it is
postponed to the next day. The rule is applied only if the actual molad occurs on Monday, not if
it is postponed to Monday. Like Gatarad, the rule really only applies to molads before noon
(18h), because Molad Zakein handles the postponements for molads at or after noon. Unlike
Gatarad, Betutkafot does not trigger Lo A"DU Rosh, because Betutkafot postpones Rosh
Hashanah from a Monday to a Tuesday and Tuesday is an acceptable day for Rosh Hashanah.

The reasoning behind this rule is similar to the reasoning behind Gatarad: the 13 lunar cycles of
the preceding year are 383d 21h 589p. If this year's Molad Tishri occurs after 2d 15h 589p, then
the preceding year's Molad Tishri must have occurred on or after 3d 18h 0p. This is 384 elapsed
days, but the preceding year's Molad Tishri was a Molad Zakein postponing Rosh Hashanah to
Wednesday, which triggers Lo A"DU, moving Rosh Hashanah to Thursday. The two
postponements shorten the preceding year to 382 days. Dechiyah Betutkafot postpones the
current year's Rosh Hashanah by one day to increase the preceding year to a permissible 383
days.

This is the rarest of the four dechiyot, applying only in the year after a leap year (7 out of 19
years) when the molad occurs on Monday (1 out of 7 days) between the 15th hour and the 18th
hour (3 out of 24 hours). It applies once or twice a century. The last time it applied was 5766
(2005-06). It will not apply again until 6013 (2252-2253)!

Step 6: Add Elapsed Days to Gregorian Starting Date

To determine the Gregorian date for Rosh Hashanah, you must take the elapsed days calculated
in Step 4, add any additional days triggered by the dechiyot in Step 5, and add this number of
days to the date of Rosh Hashanah for your known molad. For those following the script:
JavaScript doesn't do a great job of handling dates, but the ConvertGreg function adds elapsed
dates and returns a properly formatted date (American m/d/yyyy format). If you're trying to do
this without writing a program, a spreadsheet such as Microsoft Excel should be able to add a
number of days to a date.

Rosh Hashanah Calculator

To calculate the date of Rosh Hashanah for any year after 5732 using the principles above:

    1. Calculate the number of months between 5732 and your year.
    2. Calculate the amount of time elapsed in those months.
    3. Add the elapsed time to the molad of 5732 to determine the molad of your year, stopping to
       note the elapsed days before adding the day of week from the 5732 molad.
    4. Determine whether any dechiyot apply and if so, add them to the elapsed days determined
       above.
    5. Add the days elapsed to the date of Rosh Hashanah in 5732.

These steps are performed by the function CalcRH in the JavaScript, used by the form below.

Calculating Days Other Than Rosh Hashanah

The principles and JavaScript above are sufficient to allow you to convert Rosh Hashanah to a
Gregorian date for any year. However, if you want to calculate a date other than Rosh Hashanah,
you will have to calculate either that year's Rosh Hashanah, the following year's Rosh Hashanah
or both and use this information to work out the date. The information you need varies
depending on the month of the date you are calculating

Tishri
         Tishri is the month of Rosh Hashanah, so you simply add the date of the month to Rosh
         Hashanah and subtract 1 (because Rosh Hashanah is Day 1).

Cheshvan

         Cheshvan is the second month of the calendar year, and the preceding month of Tishri is always
         30 days, so you simply take the current Rosh Hashanah, add 29 days (30 - 1 for Rosh Hashanah)
         and add the date of the month.

Kislev

         Kislev is the hardest month to calculate. You cannot simply work forward from the current year's
         Rosh Hashanah, because the preceding month of Cheshvan can be 29 or 30 days, nor can you
         work backward from the next year's Rosh Hashanah, because Kislev itself can also be 29 or 30
         days. To calculate the length of Kislev, you need to know the date of Rosh Hashanah of both the
         current year and the next year, then calculate the difference between them to determine the
         length of the current year. If the year is 353, 354, 383 or 384 days, then Cheshvan is 29 days and
         you can determine a date in Kislev taking the current Rosh Hashanah, adding 58 days, then
         adding the date of the month. If the year is 355 or 385 days, then Cheshvan is 30 days and you
         can determine a date in Kislev by taking the current Rosh Hashanah, adding 59 days, then
         adding the date of the month.

Tevet, Shevat

         The remaining months of the year are of unchanging length, but the number of months varies
         depending on whether the year is a leap year! Tevet and Shevat are best calculated by working
         backwards from the following year's Rosh Hashanah and subtracting an additional 30 days in a
         leap year. Tevet's offset in a non-leap year is -266; Shevat's is -237.

Adar, Adar I and Adar II

         Adar is always offset -207 from the following Rosh Hashanah; however, in regular years, Adar is
         the 12th month of the year (starting from Nissan), and in leap years, is known as Adar II and is
         the 13th month of the year. Adar I, the extra month inserted as the 12th month in leap years, is
         always offset -237 days from Rosh Hashanah.

Nissan, Iyar, Sivan, Tammuz, Av, Elul

         The remaining months of the year are all of unchanging length and not affected by leap years.
         Simply subtract the appropriate number of days from the following year's Rosh Hashanah and
         add the date of the month.

The form below uses the functions above to calculate the dates of major Jewish holidays for any
Hebrew year.

Encoding the Year

Calendar scholars use a system of encoding to describe each Jewish year. This encoding consists
of three Hebrew letters that serve as a shorthand for important features of the calendar, and once
you work out the code, you know everything you need to know about the calendar. You don't
need to know the encoding system to be able to calculate the calendar, but it may help you
understand important features of the calendar.

The first letter is either Pei or Mem. Pei stands for the Hebrew word P'shuta (simple), and refers
to a 12-month regular year. Mem stands for Me'uberet, and refers to a 13-month leap year.

The second letter indicates which day of the week Rosh Hashanah occurs. Letters of the Hebrew
alphabet also serve as numerals (see Hebrew Alphabet - Numerical Values), and this letter
indicates whether Rosh Hashanah occurs on a Monday (Beit, that is, 2), a Tuesday (Gimel, 3), a
Thursday (Hei, 5) or a Saturday (Zayin, 7). Why not Alef (1), Dalet (4) or Vav (6)? Because
Dechiyah Lo A"DU Rosh, discussed above, prevents Rosh Hashanah from falling on Sunday,
Wednesday or Friday.

The third letter tells you the length of the year, which can be 353, 354 or 355 days (in a leap
year, 383, 384 or 385). This variation comes in part from the length of the molad cycles (which
add about 8 or 21 hours to the time of day each year, which sometimes rolls over to another day)
and in part from the application of the dechiyot. A year's length can be encoded as Cheit for
Chaseir (deficient or lacking, a 353 or 383 day year), Kaf for K'Seder (in order, a 354 or 384 day
year) or Shin for Shaleim (whole or complete, a 355 or 385 day year). In a Chaseir year, both
Cheshvan and Kislev have 29 days. In a Shaleim year, both Cheshvan and Kislev have 30 days.
In a K'Seder year, Cheshvan has 29 days and Kislev has 30 days.

Under this system of encoding, the current year (5765) is coded Mem-Hei-Cheit, because it is a
leap year (Mem), Rosh Hashanah started on a Thursday (Hei), and the year will have 383 days
(Cheit). Next year (5766) would be encoded as Pei-Gimel-Kaf because it will be a regular (non-
leap) year, it will start on a Tuesday, and it will have 354 days.

Some people code the years differently: the day of Rosh Hashanah as the first letter (instead of
the second), the length of the year as the second letter (instead of the third), and the day of the
week that Pesach (Passover) starts as the third. This third letter can be Alef (1, Sunday) through
Zayin (7, Saturday). The advantage of this system is that it tells you the day of the week that both
Pesach and Rosh Hashanah occur, which has some effect on their observances, and once these
are known, we can infer the days of the other major festivals (Sukkot and Shavu'ot). The
disadvantage is that nothing in this system tells you whether the year is a leap year, although this
can be inferred if you know the calendar well enough.

Although there are many theoretical permutations of these three-letter codes, only 14 of them are
actually possible given the constraints of calendar calculations. This means that there are only 14
different possible layouts for an annual Jewish calendar. Keep in mind, though, that these 14
different layouts don't necessarily correspond to the same Gregorian days, but they do
correspond to the distribution of weekly Torah readings. For example, in the year 5765, a Mem-
Hei-Cheit year, the Torah portion Emor was read on 5 Iyar, which was May 14, 2005. The next
Mem-Hei-Cheit year will be 5768, and Parshat Emor will be read on 5 Iyar in that year too, but 5
Iyar will occur on May 10, 2008. Contrast this with 5766, a Pei-Gimel-Kaf year, when Emor will
be read on 15 Iyar (May 13, 2006).

The following table shows which parshiyot are combined in which year encodings:

Accuracy of the Jewish Calendar

At one time, the accuracy of the Jewish calendar was proverbial. But how accurate is it really?

The average lunar month on the Jewish calendar is 29d 12h 793p. The average lunar month as
calculated by modern astronomers is 29d 12h 44m 2.8s, that is, 29d 12h 792.84p. so the variation
is less than two tenths of the smallest unit of measurement recognized by the system, about half
of a second. That is quite remarkably accurate. Of course, those lost half-seconds do add up:
within in a century, you're off by 10 minutes.

How well does the calendar correspond to the solar year? The rabbis recognized long ago that the
calendar gains 1h 485p in every 19-year cycle, adding up to a day every 300 years or so. This
was important to the rabbis in scheduling certain rituals that are based on the solar year rather
than the lunar year. We can see this effect when we examine the dates of Rosh Hashanah over
time.

Rabbi Hillel II developed the Jewish calendar in the Jewish year 4119. Using his calendar
methods as described above, and artificially assuming that the Gregorian calendar we use today
was in effect at that time, the date of Rosh Hashanah ranged from August 29 to September 28
between the years 4100 and 4200 (the 42nd century). In the present Jewish century (the 58th),
the dates of Rosh Hashanah range from September 5 to October 5, a gain of 6 or 7 days. This is
considerably more accurate than the Julian calendar used by Christians in Rabbi Hillel's time
(which had to be corrected by 11 days a few centuries ago), but you can see that it is gaining
some time.

The discrepancy in the Jewish calendar, however, is still less than a lunar month and is therefore
as accurate as it is possible to be in a lunisolar calendar. In fact, it takes about 9300 years for this
discrepancy to accumulate to a full month of time. The rabbis were aware of the problem, but
were quite confident that a new Sanhedrin will be established long before this discrepancy
becomes problematic. We still have more than 3500 years to go.

Suggestions for Further Reading

The book that most people recommend for learning about the Jewish calendar is Rabbi Nathan
Bushwick's Understanding the Jewish Calendar. I ordered this book while I was writing this
page; it took about a month to arrive, and I confess I was a bit disappointed by it. About half of
the book was basic astronomy that I learned in fourth grade, and most of the calendar
calculations I had learned before the book arrived. Nevertheless, the book did have some
interesting insights and thorough citation to Torah, Talmud and Rambam that you may find
useful or interesting.

An exhortation from the Father's heart to yours

March 7, 2008


Who Are You Listening To?

You did not call yourself, did you? I called you. So why are you wrestling with
where you are to go and what you are to do? I have everything well in hand. You
are sensitive to My leading and you will need to be more sensitive in the days
ahead.

There are issues to be dealt with and that is why I have you where you are now.
Soon those things will be resolved and you will be untethered. The work here is
important, is it not? I know you do not like it, none do, but your strength will
grow as will your faith. You can trust Me to see you through to the other side.

Know you are loved. That will not only sustain you, but propel you.

It is a season of restoration and this is why the enemy seeks to destroy that word
in your own life. He wants you to give up and turn around, but you must not
listen to him. Satan hates you. I love you. Who are you going to listen to?

With all My heartfelt love,
                              Abba

My Uncut Jewels

February 15, 2008




An exhortation from the heart of Father to yours: My Uncut Jewels

When a stone of great value is unearthed, it can be very dull to the natural eye. It takes a
trained eye to see its worth. Many precious stones have been cast aside because the one
digging did not have the eyes to see what it was they had in their hands.

This is also true of My jewels - those I Am drawing to Myself by My Spirit. Those around My
jewels-in-the-rough who fail to see their great worth and beauty often cast them aside and
look for another that is already polished.

It is My desire when a stone, a new born-again believer, is found, it is carefully handled and
cut to precision. I want the beautiful facets, which I have infused into their being at
conception, to sparkle and shine in the light of My glory.
I Am calling My apostles, My prophets, My evangelists, My pastors and teachers to see the
great worth that is all around them. Look at the jewels I have given you, My leaders!
Behold the value - the eternal value that I have sat in your midst! Each and every person is
of great value to Me. Look carefully at who I have sent your way. Look for the passion in
their eyes that came from being pressed in on every side by the fire of My glory. Coal
placed under intense pressure and heat creates diamonds. My fire creates a thing of beauty
in a new believer transforming them from a lump of coal to a diamond.

Some of My jewels are already cut and you need only help them be placed in their proper
setting. Others have been cut but need to be polished. Some have been partially cut and
need you to help finish the job so they can shine. This can be difficult if the "jeweler"
before you damaged My beautiful stone; believe Me when I tell you that nothing is wasted
in My kingdom.

There are stones that have just recently been unearthed; these you will have the privilege
of seeing go from a lump of coal to a beautifully set stone. You will first clean them with
the Living Water and help to cut away the old rock with the skillful use of My sword. You
must be careful and loving in this process. Be mindful of what you are doing. Make a
careful examination of the natural nuances of each precious stone. If you are of My Spirit,
this will humble you and that one you have set will also humbly reflect My glory. If you are
of another spirit you will be prideful and so will your stone - taking all for self-glory. So I
caution you to walk in humility in this process knowing you can only accomplish this with My
wisdom and counsel. Do not fear or worry, as I will not leave you alone in the process but
will guide your way to perfection.

There are stones you will come across that are still coal and you must leave them to Me.
These are the ones that haven't given their life to Christ. They may attend or belong to a
church, but they do not fully belong to Me.

Behold! The fields sparkle with jewels! Ask Me for the tools and the settings and I will give
them to you. If you see the great value all around you and you follow My instructions, by
the end of this year you will look at your jewels and be amazed at what they are doing to
bring honor and glory and praise to My kingdom. As I have shown you, show others.

Love,
Abba


Vision:


The Jeweler:

I saw a jeweler who sat on a short, wheeled stool in the middle of two tables placed in the
shape of an upside-down L. To his left on the table shorter in length sat a very large and
beautiful golden crown. Its front was very tall, not like a king's crown, but more like the
pope's MITRE. On it there were many vacant spaces to place jewels. A few large and very
costly stones had already been set into place.

On the longer table were hundreds of stones in all stages of cutting. The jeweler wore a
magnifying eye piece so that he could carefully examine each stone. He only looked for
those already polished and of great value, but even in his haste many beautiful stones were
falling off the table and were getting lost in the cracks and corners of the floor. Some of
incalculable value fell through the cracks and were never retrieved. There were some
stones in raw form that were of greater value than any jewel on the crown, but because
they were not cut in facets and polished, the jeweler quickly looked them over. Those uncut
stones of great worth had been given to him to cut and shape into a masterful thing of
beauty, but even the large stones of immense value were haphazardly being knocked off
the table. Some fell into the trash and were inadvertently thrown out.

All these jewels were given to him to bring glory to the Kingdom of God, but they were also
for his crown to present to the Lord. The crown of exquisite beautiful was sparsely filled
considering the amount of jewels that had been given the jeweler.

The warning given to the jeweler was to slow down and look more closely at the stones that
had been given him. He was not to look with his natural eye that magnified all the flaws,
imperfections and the lack of polish residing in the stones, but he was to look with the
magnified eye of the Spirit of God that would show him its amazing beauty that was hidden
within each stone and He would give the exact skill and precision needed to bring it out.

An exhortation from the heart of Jesus to yours: A Day of New Beginnings


It is a day indeed of new beginnings. The promises of restoration will be seen in every
aspect of your life as you submit yourself to Me.
Remember, I reach into the depths of your woundedness and work My way out. Your idea
of restoration is for Me to start from the outside and work My way in.

This is not the way I work, Beloved. If I gave you everything you want or think you need
on the outside, then you would forsake Me and never be healed on the inside. I Am much
more concerned about developing your character by helping you go through the difficult
storms of life, than to deliver you out of them.

I look for the hidden things of the heart. I Am the One who discerns the motivations of
man. I Am the Revealer of mysteries and secrets. I Am the One who breaks through the
stopped up wells of your heart and allows the clean water to come forth. Drink deeply of
My well, child, and see how I Am cleansing you from the inside will make everything on the
outside look differently.

Indeed this is a day of new beginnings. So embrace My inner cleansings, for if you refuse
Me you will never enter My rest nor will you fulfill your destiny in Me.

Come and sit with Me as I will surely show you a more excellent way to cleanse the wounds
of your inner heart. Then you will rise up with wings as eagles and soar to places you can
only dream of now. Come and see where I stay; come where I abide. Then you shall know
the truth and the truth shall set you free.

Very truly yours
The Restorer of the breach

The Building of My Holy City

Jewels from Judy: The Building of My Holy City

Judy Bauman

www.thefathersloveim.org




January 15, 2008




An exhortation from the heart of Jesus to yours: The Building of My Holy City
I Am rebuilding the broken walls of My church. I Am bringing together those of like         callings
to work in concert to rebuild that specific side of the wall - that gate of My holy city.    Do not
think that because someone is not building on the same wall or at the same gate             as you,
that they are not in My will or following My plan. My blueprints are vast and               no one
"movement" would be able to finish what I Am building.

The church must stop its mudslinging against other Christian denominations. They must
cease from attacking another believer when they are called from their midst to work on
another section of My wall for the building of My Church. Just because someone is building
elsewhere does not mean they are out of My will. Nor are they slighting your work. This
presumption must stop! My leaders need to be on the lookout for the lost and not take aim
at those being called to work elsewhere. This pride and arrogance must be repented of in
order to continue in the building of My church. If repentance does not come, those who are
guilty will be found building their own kingdom, not Mine. I will not allow leaders that have
the blood of My sheep on their hands to continue in My grace. If there is sheep or lamb's
blood on your sword, meaning you have wounded the Body of Christ by misusing My Word,
you will be held in stricter judgment. (See Isaiah 1:17; Matthew 13:30; James 3:1)

Putting it in today's military terms: The friendly fire must end and it must end now.

If you watch sheep you will see that when they are frightened they all move in one direction
as though they were one animal in motion. Those who get separated or are unable to move
with the flock are quickly picked out as prey for wolves. Many in places of leadership in the
church have leveled accusations against the sheep for flocking from one [church] movement
to the next, but it is the nature of sheep to flock to where they feel safe and where they
believe they will be fed. If they discover they are no longer safe with the shepherd of their
keeping or if they have received tainted food, they will flock to another.

The shepherds watching over My Church have failed, in large measure, to recognize their
part in this phenomenon. They quickly blame anything that comes to mind, but they fail to
see that they have become "unsafe" in the eyes of the flock. In their ignorance they blame
the sheep for biting, not knowing that sheep rarely bite unless strongly provoked to terror.
Few of those with five fold ministry titles will admit to themselves that they have wounded
and scarred My sheep. The reason they do not see this is because their eyes are focused on
building their own kingdom and not Mine. They seek to establish their name instead of
exalting Mine. These are hirelings posing as shepherds, but they are only interested in their
welfare and not the sheep's. Others had genuine calls on their lives to shepherd My sheep,
but instead of waiting for My Gatekeeper, My Holy Spirit, to open the Gate and lead them
through Me, they jumped over the wall. In doing so, they have become thieves and robbers
and they act as such. Shepherds of My flocks must be recognized by My Gatekeeper and
wait to be invited to come through the Gate. They cannot come in some other way! I Am
the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one can come to the Father but through Me. (See
John 10:1-18; 14:6)

Those who will gather with Me and will cooperate with My Spirit will yield great harvests, but
those who divide as they murmur, complain and grumble will find themselves lost in the
desert wasteland. (Numbers 14:27-32; Luke 3:17; 11:23)

There are many who I have been training who have sought My face in the secret place and
they are willing to obey their Master and proclaim their King, "The LORD our Righteous" to
the nations. I can quickly bring one down and raise one up who has not stiffened his neck
as many leading My flocks are now doing. (Psalm 105:1-4; Luke 3:8; Matthew 28:18-20)
I will, I will, I will remove their lampstands if their stiff necks do not turn back to Me and I
will replace them with the ones who say, "Your will and not mine be done, Holy King and
Master." (See Luke 22:42; Revelation 2:5)

The building of My Church will not be stopped by man's selfish desires, but it will be
accomplished by those who will turn from their desires to Mine. (Mark 4:18-20)

       "Woe to the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the sheep of My pasture."
       "I will place shepherds over them who will tend them and they will no longer be
       afraid or terrified, nor will any be missing." Jeremiah 23:1; 4

Listen only to those who have stood in My counsel and have proclaimed My words to My
people. Those who tickle your ears will lead you to an unsafe edge, to a dangerous
precipice. Do not allow them to tempt you away from the message of the Cross. The false
prophets will tell you what you want to hear and you will be food for the wolves if you listen
to them. There are two factions of which to beware as both of these are from the days of
old. They have reared up in "prophetic circles" to mislead My sheep to follow their lures.
The first will speak of fame and fortune. These speak of fleshly prosperity that is outside the
purpose of My blessings. The second will speak of prophetic visions in which they curse their
own land or the land of others. If their words bring no hope or plan of redemption to the
nations, then they are not of Me. Did I not say I would be with you to the ends of the earth?
I always give hope. I Am Redemption! (See Deuteronomy 23:4-6; Jude 1:11; Jeremiah
1:7; Psalms 10:4-7; 33:11; Acts 1:8; 20:30; Proverbs 11:25; 2 Timothy 4:3)

I Am your Standard. Look to My life and to those who pick up their cross and follow Me.
Many live very difficult and poverty stricken lives and are completely in My will. They drink
from the cup that I give them. These are those who do not try to glamorize Christianity to
win the lost. The lost will remain lost under the direction of the false shepherds and the
cruel deception of their teachers will lead them to believe a false gospel. You must remain
faithful to your pure and sincere devotion to the True Gospel of Jesus Christ. You must test
the spirits to see if they are from Me. You will know them by their fruit if they are of My
Holy Spirit or of another kind. (Matthew 20:22; 2 Corinthians 11:3-4; Galatians 5:13-26; 1
John 4:1)

The builders with Nehemiah rebuilt the broken walls and gates of Jerusalem with a tool in
one hand and wore a sword on their side. Half the men worked while the other half were
equipped with spears, shields, bows, and armor to guard their positions. Those who carried
the materials had supplies in one hand and kept a sword in the other. The work of the Lord
had to be defended against His enemies. (See Nehemiah 4:16-18) It will be this way in the
days to come and even in this hour. Fear not as the building of the Holy City will be
successful. Be as My chosen leader and tell the enemy when he comes to distract you, "I
am doing a great work and I cannot come down." (Nehemiah 6:3)

However, do take note of what briefly halted Nehemiah's work. It was the outcry of the
poor that reached his ears that caused all work to cease. The poor were being taken
advantage of by their own people. Some were even used as slaves. Nehemiah confronted
those who acted in such a disgraceful manner who preyed on their own and made them
poor. He admonished them that they were acting worse than their enemies and that they
should walk in the fear of their God. He demanded they give back everything taken and
made them swear an oath. He shook out the folds of his robe and said, "In this way, may
God shake out of his house and possessions every one who does not keep this promise. So
may such a man be shaken out and emptied." (See Nehemiah 5:1-13) Today I am issuing
this warning to those who have been taking advantage of My people. I will remove what
can be shaken - so that what cannot be shaken will remain. I Am a consuming fire. (See
Hebrews 12:27-29)

Follow My leading, Beloved, and wait on My Holy Spirit to open the Gate. Then you will
have full access to the work and building at hand. Keep your eyes and ears open and seek
those who have like callings. You will have different giftings but similar vision and your
work together will enjoy greater success. You will be able to watch each other's back and
keep the enemy from hindering your victory. Together your ability to build will be
exponentially strengthened.

I Am building My Holy City and it is My desire for you build it with Me and by My side. (See
1 Corinthians 3:9)

Your Faithful Shepherd,
 Jesus

An exhortation from the Father's heart to yours: Follow In Your Daddy's Footsteps

There is something My church needs to see if they are going to survive the onslaught of the
enemy and build My kingdom. First they need to be wise in where they get their counsel.
The church has become more concerned with the business aspect than the spiritual aspect
of building My kingdom.

When My Son was twelve and was found teaching in the temple, He was not talking to them
about how to increase their numbers or how to get people to give more money. He was
teaching in the temple the truths of My kingdom. He spoke of My love and mercy and how I
have a faithful heart He was practicing with the keys I gave Him to unlock the door of
legalism. He was practicing with the keys I gave Him to unlock the hearts of man and
particularly the hearts of the religious leaders. He was setting the stage for the Veil to be
torn so that mankind would be free to come to My Throne of Grace in their urgent times of
need.*

Today My apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers tend to seek counsel to
"Grow their ministry" outside of Me. They read books and attend seminars to receive the
"how to's" of the ministry instead of coming to Me! What did Jesus tell you in John 5:19?
Jesus gave them this answer: "I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by
Himself; He can do only what He sees His Father doing, because whatever the
Father does the Son also does."
And in John 8:28?

So Jesus said, "When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I
am [the one I claim to be] and that I do nothing on My own but speak just what the
Father has taught Me."
If the Son of Man did nothing on His own except what He saw His Father doing, then why
does My Church think they can gain wisdom outside of My counsel? If My people who are
called by My name would humble themselves and come to Me in sincere reverence and trust
Me to show them what to do, then they would build My kingdom to My specifications and
not man's.

Didn't Paul warn the Galatians they could not finish in the flesh what was started in the
Spirit? So why do My church builders think I call them into ministry for them to take the
world's counsel on how to complete it? There is a place for teaching, but when those I have
called seek advice outside of My leading, then failure to complete My objective is at hand.

What is tragic is they can look successful from a worldly standpoint, yet be failing miserably
in kingdom building. These are those who will come to Me saying, "Lord! Lord, did we not
prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?'
Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from Me, you evildoers!" (See
Matthew 7:20-23)
So be wise for the days are evil. (See Ephesians 5:16)
Now I speak to the small ministries - those with little help or financial support. Do not be
dismayed at your size and do not speak doubt and unbelief into what I Am birthing in you.
I set before you life and death. Choose life. (See Deuteronomy 30:19) Say no more, "I am
just one person." You are looking at yourself from your perspective and not Mine. If you
continue to see yourself small, then you will remain as "grasshoppers" in your own sight.
Come to where I Am and you will not see the lack you will see the abundance. If you do
then you will be confident in saying, "We can do it! We are well able to do it!" (See
Numbers 13:30-33)
Speak what you have been shown in the secret place - from My Throne of Grace. Do not
follow the others who will point you to the world's system and its trappings. Follow in your
Daddy's footsteps and eat what I give you. You will eat the good of the Land.
Adonai




*Because there is no direct Scripture to verify what Jesus was talking about in the temple, I
would caution my readers to take this fact under consideration. I include it as I believe it is
what the Father was saying to me and because it does line up with His teachings as an
adult. The essence of this word is about our coming to the Lord to receive guidance and
counsel in how to build His kingdom, and it is my hope that you are spurred on by this
exhortation to seek His face and hear His voice and follow Him. (1 Corinthians 14:32)

An exhortation from the Father's heart to yours: New Cloths

New cloths are being sewn together.

So many of My children do not feel they fit into the church. They have tried and some have
been accused of being rebellious, but this is not it at all. They are new cloths trying to be
fitted onto an old garment.

I will take the new cloths and sew them together making a new garment - a coat of many
colors. Some have called this "The Joseph Company" and this is that same group's
garment.

This is not about your age, Children, this is about the movement of your heart. You have
always struggled to fit in and this is why. Rejoice that you are a new cloth and that I Am
sewing and knitting you together. The older ones, who have fought with this their entire
lives, will come out to teach the younger ones and the younger ones will not be made to
sit. They will not be made to be trophies of men. They will be sown into the world and
taught to go make disciples of Jesus, the Christ.

The Joseph Company will be bold and fierce and Satan will tremble at their coming. Not
since the days of Pentecost has anything been seen like this company of foot soldiers. They
will heal the sick, they will cast out demons, they will raise the dead. They will not be
taught disbelief but they will believe the Word of the Lord; and they will not falter.

Strong evidence that these are sent by God Himself is that they will have an
uncompromised walk of purity and holiness. They will walk in My image. They will not toy
with sin, nor will they be persuaded to look at evil. They will not make excuses but will
quickly repent. All sin will be renounced and they will walk with such power that even their
mentors will tremble at the sight of their coming. They will bring a tangible "Fear of the
Lord".

God will be with the Joseph Company, and just as the world at the time of Joseph was
saved from famine, nations will be saved from spiritual famine. They will bring spiritual
milk, meat, bread, wine, and gold wherever they go.

Stand and behold the awesomeness of their God and King - to Whom they will give all glory.

An exhortation from the Father: Living Stones

Fellowship is important, or I would not have set up My church the way I have. It is the
Living Stones which I have hewn must come together to form the building. I dwell in each
of you to a determined measure, but in and of yourselves I can only fill you up so much.
However, when you all come together the filling in each one of you is combined. This is the
fullness that you sense in the corporate setting - the fullness of joy, the fullness of My
Spirit. The fruits of My Spirit are all there and the joy that comes from that will strengthen
and empower you.



In the places [in My church] where the leaven of the Pharisees has overtaken, you will not
have this joy. The joy of those who walk in My Spirit will be full of glory - it is the joy
unspeakable. There are also places [in My church] full of the leaven of Herod. It is a
worldly yeast that has worked its way in and puffed up the whole congregation. Both the
leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod puff up and make [those who partake of it]
haughty. Pride is always the root! So beware of this when searching out a Body to be
connected and attached to.



My church will be built and it will be built to My specifications. If My specifications are not
followed exactly, then I will tear down that building and begin again. My foundation is
always the same - Jesus is the foundation. He is the Christ and the Only One worthy to
open the scrolls. To Him be given the glory or the building will crumble. The words of man
must all pass through His eyes of fire. What is left standing will remain.



The church will take on a new look in the coming days. It will not be people coming week in
and week out to do their "time" for God, but it will be Living Stones being fitted together by
the Hand of the Master Builder Himself. Did Jesus tell His disciples that He was going to
make a place?



Do you not know yet nor do you not see that you are the temple of the Living God? Have I
not placed My Spirit in you? Are not all My promises, "Yes" in Christ Jesus? Is it now
possible for you to say together in one voice, "Amen" to the glory of your Father?
Seek My promises for the Body of Christ and know that I have spoken, "Yes" to them all.
You who are called by My name say, "Amen!" Then you will see My glory coming into the
Living Stones and you will see a new and glorious church arise.



This is not for another time. This is for now.



                                          Please see:

       Hebrews 10:22-25; Psalms 127:1; John 14:2, 21, 23; John 15:4; Mark 8:15;

                Luke 6:46-49; Luke 11:37-54; Luke 12:1-3; Luke 13:20,21;

An exhortation from the Father: Turn Your Eyes Upward

O My faithful children! Turn here and give ear and listen to what I tell you.

Stop the worrying and fretting over those things which are out of your control. Do you not
know that I love you and that I will never forsake My faithful ones? If you are fretting over
the evil of men and it has consumed your thoughts, then turn to Me and watch My
righteousness rise up with healing in My wings. Turn your eyes upward! Fix your gaze on
the splendor of My glory. As you turn your eyes toward Me, those things that disturb you
here on earth will take on a different color. Their hues will be shown in My light and you will
see them for what they truly are.

Come dear one. Come and sit on My lap. Come to My dwelling place and hear what I speak
to you. Those things that seem so serious will be as shadow in the light of My glory and
your answers will be obvious.

There is no lack where I Am. Everything you need is where I Am. I created it all and I
have plenty of reserves on hand for those who lack and are in need. So do not fear, My
Flower, you will not wither as I am watering you with My living water and you will not die
but live.

Love

Abba



As the Lord concluded dictating this word, I heard an old American folk song and found the
words very interesting in the light of His glory and The Cross of Jesus. I also heard this
song when the Lord gave me the word, "Come Beloved."
http://www.thefathersloveim.org/come_beloved

It was only the chorus that I was hearing, so I will submit just that:

Red River Valley
arranged and adapted by Arlo Guthrie

CHORUS:
Come and sit by my side, if you love me
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
Just remember the Red River Valley
And the cowboy who loved you so true



Has the Revolution Begun?
Has the Revolution Begun?
December 14, 2007



As we approach the end of 2007 and look forward to what the Lord has for us in the coming
year, it is important that we take stock in what has already been given us. I have been
seeking the Lord for 2008 and interestingly He has made it clear that I am to rerelease the
word for 2007 before He will release the word for 2008!

So I submit to you the word the Lord gave me for 2007. It was originally sent out in five
parts. I hope you can use it as a five day study and I strongly recommend reading the
Scripture references as I know the Lord will speak to you as you do.

Be blessed in the Father's love,

Jewels From Judy: 2007 - The Year of Cadence
Judy Bauman

2007 - The Year of Cadence
Part One: To My people who are called by My name:


As you enter into and proceed through 2007, I do not desire for you to make resolutions for this
year, I desire for you to make a revolution. This revolution is not to occur outside in the world,
but on the inside of your heart and mind. This word is not meant to merely impact you over just
one year; it must change you for life. I desire a revolution of purity and holiness in the people
who are called by My name. It is time to fervently seek My face. I do not ask this of
unbelievers; I ask this of you. It is time by the power of My Spirit to utterly put to death the
misdeeds of the body so that you will live. I tell you it is time to overthrow your fleshly nature.
Your flesh and all its desires are no longer to govern you. Do not sit idle and think of ways to
gratify the desires of the sinful nature. It is time for those who call themselves Mine to wake up!
It is time to move. The slumber that you have been in has been deep, and rousting you awake
has taken much time and energy. What will it take to get your attention?
                 (See 2 Chronicles 7:14; Romans 13:11-14; Ephesians 5:13-17; Revelation 3:2, 3)


The hour has come for you to completely wake up from your slumber, because your salvation is
nearer now than when you first believed. Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, put on
My armor, put on My light, put on My love, put on a garment of Praise. If you really want to see
breakthrough in your life, take off the old man and deeds of darkness. Put on Christ! My soldiers
- those who are the ambassadors of My love - are lining up. They are the ones who have been
tried in My fire and have been tested in the wilderness. They have gone through many fastings
and times of consecrated prayer. They know My voice and another they will not follow. These
are the ones I trust to carry the fire of My love for the nations and to the nations. My love wins
all battles. I Am calling you today to be part of that army. I Am asking you to get into
formation. I Am beckoning you to war against hate with My love and forgiveness. Blessed are
the merciful for they will be shown mercy. Each time you choose mercy over judgment you
overthrow the powers of darkness. Judge not or you will be judged. Instead, send confusion into
the camp of the enemy by forgiving offenses. When the enemy seeks to strike at you, turn and
praise and worship your God! Confound him with your praises of victory as My people did
when they were surrounded by the enemy at The Valley of Berachah. You are more than
conquerors through Christ who loves you, so go into the battle knowing that you have already
won.
  (See 2 Chronicles 20:1-26; Isaiah 61:3; Matthew 5:7; 7:1, 2; Luke 6:36; John 3:16; 10:4, 5, 27;
   Romans 8:13; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21; Galatians 3:27; Ephesians 6:10-18; Colossians 3:1-17; 2
                                                                                           Tim 2:4)


There is a sound on the horizon, My dearly loved children, friends and soldiers. Do you hear it?
It is the sound of My army. It is the sound of cadence. It is the sound of My army marching in
step with Me and along side My heavenly angelic hosts. Can you hear the sound of heaven? Can
you hear the cadence in your heart? Do you feel the rhythm beating within every fiber of your
being? This is a military like no other. I provided for your atonement and I can provide
anything you need in any situation. This army has been given powerful weapons and has been
trained to use them by My Spirit because they are spiritual weapons. They are mighty in the
pulling down of strongholds. Take every thought captive, beloved, and make your will obey the
ways of your King! My will be done. Line up, fall in, march, follow Me.
                                (See Isaiah 51:4-7; Matthew 6:10; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5; Acts 2:2)


My grace has been extended in an extraordinary way to those who heeded the word and
submitted their flesh to My Spirit in 2006. Even if it were a failed attempt, I see your heart and a
double measure of grace is given to you now to walk in victory. Receive it. Receive My grace.
This is not about your keeping a set of rules. This is about following Me, trusting Me, and
seeking My counsel in every area of your life. As you walk in step with Me in 2007 and allow
Me to bring you into spiritual perfection, you will see miracles flow freely from My storeroom
into the places of greatest need. The release of My grace will be clearly seen and not hidden in a
back room. Believers and unbelievers alike will stand in awe together. So rise up in My love
and soar to new heights by My hand and My provision. My grace is sufficient. My power is
made perfect in your weakness.
            (Deuteronomy 28:2; Proverbs 3:5-8; Isaiah 52:2; Matthew 24:27; 2 Corinthians 12:9)
Love,
Abba

2007 - The Year of Cadence
Part Two: My Desires for My Church


Let Me tell you what I desire. I desire to see My beloved Church arise in unity and strength. I
desire to see My Church step in time. I long to see you revolutionized by walking in My ways.
My ways are pure and holy and true and you will be blessed and whole and healed as you walk
in them. O rejoice at this news dear ones! Does My word tell you that I desire to see the whole
Body of Christ built up, joined and held together by every supporting ligament? Yes! I yearn to
see you grow and built up in love. Do not live as the unbelievers do, in the futility of their
thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of
the hardening of their hearts. As it is written in Scripture:


         "Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion." Hebrews
         3:7, 8a


Those written of in this Scripture never entered into My rest. Do not be stubborn like they were
in their disbelief. See to it that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from
Me. Instead run to Me! Run to the Mercy Seat for this is the hour of grace. Return to the joy of
your salvation. Encourage one another every day as long as it is called Today, so that none of
you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness.
     (See Psalm 103:3; 133:1; John 17:23; Romans 15:5; Ephesians 4:11-18; Hebrews 3:19; 4:16)
I Am asking you to view your circumstances and the circumstances of those around you from
My heavenly perspective. Follow Jesus' example; He did nothing without seeing Me do it first.
He acknowledged that He could do nothing in Himself and taught you that you can do nothing in
yourself. Let me show you everything as I showed Him. I want you to see what is going on
around you and your world from My vantage point - from My overwatch(1). Ask for the eyesight
of an eagle. I will freely give the keen vision of an eagle to whosoever will ask Me. I want you
to be able to see afar off. Ask Me for the ointment and I will heal your eyes. They are dimmed
from having to strain and squint to see through the darkness of this world. I have much for you
to see because the enemy is advancing in unparalleled ways. What is impossible for man is
possible with God. Only believe.
                (See John 5:19, 20; 6:28, 29; 14:9-14; Mark 5:36; 10:27; Revelation 3:18; 12:14)


Satan's time is short and he grows increasingly ruthless. He desires to blind you completely by
poisoning your vision. He does not want you to see him as he advances. He uses camouflage to
trick My church. He uses your own flesh and its desires against you with the goal to destroy
you. Be careful what you look at and bring into My temple. You are My temple and I love you!
I tell you this to protect you and not to keep you from "fun". While sin may seem fun for a
season, you must understand that Satan's goal is to steal, kill and destroy you, and he is using
your own flesh to do it. Your carnal nature is drawn to sin, so you must war within your
members and take every thought captive to make it obedient to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Remember though, Satan and his demons are not omnipresent nor can they read your mind. Do
not get into agreement with his lies. Do not give him and his cohorts power over your life. He
can only gain it if you hand it to him. Do not assign to him what belongs to Me and that is glory.
Do not glorify him. My church tends to speak over and over again what Satan and his demons
are doing and that glorifies them; it magnifies them. Come! Magnify the Lord! Wash the
venom from your eyes in My Living Water. Jesus disarmed the powers and authorities of
darkness. He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the Cross. Look at what
Jesus has done to defeat them. Speak of what He has done to set you free. Jesus came to give
you life and give it to you in abundance. Glorify Him!
               (See Psalm 34:3; John 5:20, 21; 8:36; 10:10; Romans 7:21-25; 2 Corinthians 10:5;
                                   Galatians 5:19-21; Colossians 2:13-15; Revelation 12:12; 14:7)
Be wise with your words and be wise in your treatment of others. Be wise with all that you say
and do. If you follow Jesus' two commandments - to love the Lord your God with all your heart,
soul and mind, and love your neighbor as yourself - then it will be well with your soul. This is
not to say you will not suffer hardship. You will. That thinking is in direct conflict with My
Word and is from "another gospel". Jesus taught that tribulation would come, but that He had
overcome the world. The prince of this world had nothing on Jesus, and as you are in Christ,
Satan has nothing on you either. Take joy in that knowledge!
                              (See Matthew 12:37; 22:36-40; 24:9-14; Luke 7:35; John 14:30; 16:33)


Love,
Abba



(1)
   Overwatch - The term overwatch originates in U.S. military doctrine. In modern warfare overwatch is the state
of one military vehicle supporting another unit while they are executing fire and movement tactics. An
overwatching unit has taken a position where it can observe the terrain ahead. The overwatch position can
especially search out enemy positions. This allows it to provide effective covering for advancing friendly units.

2007 - The Year of Cadence
Part Three: The Meat of the Matter:


Understand that I Am the God of the universe and I Am is inviting you to My war-room. Will
you come? This is not a time for the weak or faint of heart. It is time for mighty men and
woman of valor to rise up and take their place. It is time to come out of the caves and advance
My kingdom and My purpose. Be careful not to have any agenda but Mine. Your agenda will
surely cause you to drift off the course of My plan. My plan is perfect. Trust that I will assign
your post, so do not try to figure out where you are to be and what you are to do, as it is up to Me
to determine your position. I will assign your duties. I will make it plain. If you try to place
yourself or elevate your own rank in My army, it is likely that you will choose to go somewhere
and do something you think sounds like the best assignment. You must trust Me that this could
be a fatal miscalculation on your part. If you assign yourself to the post of your comfort and
choosing, you will most likely be in direct opposition to My purpose and plan for your life. I
Am God of the heavenly hosts and saints. I do know what is best for you. Once you know what
position I have called you to, march to it and go forth with confidence, not arrogance, beloved,
with confidence in Me to see you through every battle and to provide your every need. Stand
alert, so if your orders change, quickly comply and move to your new post. If you do not trust
Me to command you, then who is your Lord? Have you accepted My Son as Savior, but not
made Him your Lord? I ask you to trust your heavenly Father. I discipline those I love. Allow
Jesus to be your King, Ruler, and Lord of your life.
                                     (See Exodus 15:3; 1 Corinthians 12:4-14; Philippians 2:2-11;
                                          Hebrews 12:4-8, 11; 1 John 5:14; Revelation 4:1, 19:19)


Remember that the weapons that I have provided to My army are mighty in the pulling down of
strongholds. These are not natural weapons but spiritual ones because you are in a spiritual
battle. However, I issue this warning: Do not pick up the weapons of your enemy or you will
become like your enemy. Satan's weapons are jealousy, suspicion, gossip, envy, dissension,
discord, slander, factions, contention, strife, unforgiveness, bitterness, wrath, anger, hatred and
the like. These are rampant in the church and come from a spirit of pride. Satan wants you to
emulate him and I have given you the choice as to whom you will serve. So choose wisely!
Have I not warned you in My Word that those who practice such things will not enter into My
kingdom? Do not emulate the devil. Satan prowls around and seeks to destroy you. He plans to
use the death of his servants as an excuse to wage war against the saints. Use My weapons, not
the weapons of this world to disarm him and his demons. Pick up the sword of My Word and use
it to demolish the evil one's plans to destroy you, your family, those you love and those to whom
you are bound by My Spirit. I will give you wisdom and skill to use it. My Word is your sword.
Wield it only against the enemy. Do not be found to be one that wounds a brother or sister in
Christ when using My Word - your Bible. This is a form of self-mutilation as you are all one
body. Instead, love one another deeply with the love (agape) that I give because love covers a
multitude of sin. Strengthen, comfort and encourage each other with My Holy Scriptures.
Rulers, authorities, principalities and powers of darkness do not have any defense against My
love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness or self-control. When you
walk in the fruit of My Spirit; when you love those who hate you and pray for those who
persecute you; when you forgive grievances and bear with one another; when you refuse to allow
a root of bitterness to take hold of you; when you take up your cross and follow Jesus - then you
are demolishing the devil's plans. Walk in victory, beloved! You are known in heaven as My
chosen, as My elect, and as My children. Walk humbly before both your God and mankind; if
you do, you will have great authority in and by My Spirit. Be faithful until death, and I will give
you the crown of life.
    (See Micah 6:8; Luke 9:23-27; 14:27; 1 Corinthians 14:3; Galatians 5:19-26; Ephesians 6:17;
 Colossians 3:11-17; Hebrews 12:15; 2 Tim 2:24; 1 Peter 2:9-12; 4:8; 5:8, 1 John 5:2; Revelation
                                                                                               2:10)


This is the greatest warfare that mankind can be engaged in and I am calling you to join My
army. Will you walk in My love? If these terms of engagement are difficult for you to envision,
again I encourage you to ask Me for the eye ointment to heal your vision so that you can see
from My vantage point. The heavenly view is lovely, beloved!


        "I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may be rich; and
        white robes to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nakedness from being seen;
        and salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. I reprove and discipline those
        whom I love. Be earnest, therefore, and repent. Listen! I Am standing at the door,
        knocking; if you hear My voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with
        you, and you with Me. To the one who conquers I will give a place with Me on My
        throne, just as I Myself conquered and sat down with My Father on His throne. Let
        anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches."
        Revelation 3:18-22


Love,
Abba

2007 - The Year of Cadence
Part Four: Revelry! Awaken and Join the Cadence of Righteousness!


O My, beloved church, what will awaken you from your deep slumber? Many think I desire to
bring calamity to bring the world to its knees. This is not My desire. This has never been My
desire. I Am a merciful God and calamity grieves Me. The atonement for all sin for all time was
provided for you on the Cross of Calvary. Jesus' blood is the perfect sacrifice and no other is
needed. Great is My love! I desire for you to be on your knees because I Am your King and out
of your love and devotion towards Me. My desire for you to bow is to confess Jesus is Lord, not
because a calamity came your way and you sought Me out as your last resort. However, know
this, if a calamity has brought you to Me, all of heaven rejoices with Me! Whatever comes your
way that causes you to "come to yourself" and turn to Me, then know that I will RUN to meet
you. I will fit you with a robe, a ring and shoes for your feet to walk in My ways and in My
authority.
                             (See 1 Chronicles 21:15; Psalm 95:6; 103:8-14; Daniel 6:10; 10:10-15;
                                                    Luke 15:10-24; Ephesians 5:14-17; Hebrews 9:26)


You are accepted in the Beloved, but do not think that I will take lightly the avoidance of My
correction. Everyone I love, I correct. Every child I accept, I discipline. Please do not lose heart
in the process. It is My desire for you to reap an abundant harvest. So I ask you, is Jesus your
Lord? If you say yes, yet you do not walk in His teachings, then you deceive yourself into
believing you are saved. If you do not do what He said, then you do not truly believe in your
heart that Jesus is Lord. If this offends you then ask Me to search your heart. I know you. I love
you deeply and My desire is for you to walk with Me. I will show you My truth and truth will
overcome your offenses and unbelief. You are to follow My Son, Jesus. Followers are to
follow, not to attempt to coerce Me to do what they think they want Me to do for them. Do not
take lightly the gift of grace given you. Do not think you may do whatever you feel like doing
and I will just look the other way on the Day. My child, you must see that I Am just, I Am holy,
I Am righteous. I Am impartial. You are misled if you think I will wink at your sin and let you
pass. Be responsible for your actions and allow My correction to heal you where you are hurt.
Be holy for I Am holy! Does this sound like a request? I warn not to mock the blood of My
Beloved Jesus shed for you on Calvary by walking in the ways of the world. Do not mock My
grace. If you operate in this spirit, I ask you to repent and receive My forgiveness. If you refuse
then you will suffer a dreadful blow. You are warned continually of this fact in Scripture and
you are warned now. ALL of My promises are "Yes" in Christ. This is not just for the blessings,
but also for the curses that I have so carefully warned you to avoid.
                                  (Psalm 139:23, 24; Matthew 4:19; Luke 9:62; Romans 3:22-26;
                  2 Corinthians 1:20; Galatians 6:7; Hebrews 12:5-7; 1 Peter 1:15-22; 1 John 1:9)


       See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you
       today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commands,
       decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you
       in the land you are entering to possess. Deuteronomy 30:15, 16


Many think that they are a special case and that they will be the one that will be exempt from My
laws, decrees and instruction. No one is exempt from My Word. Did I make an exception for
Jesus? Was He tested in the wilderness by the enemy? Did He seek Me to remove His cup?
Was He tempted in all things? Was He rejected and abandoned? Do you see? Not even Jesus
was exempt from My Word. I would not be a just and impartial God if even one person were
allowed exemption because I would be breaking My own Word. I will not do that. I did not
spare the natural branches. Consider therefore the kindness and the severity of God.
          (See Matthew 26:39; Luke 4:1-13; Romans 11:19-22; 1 Peter 2:21-25; 2 Peter 2:21-24)


These words that you hear may sound demanding and even harsh, but dear one, you must
understand what is at stake. Thousands of souls are on the line - including yours. You must
understand the times in which you live. You live in days which are perilous and fraught with
danger. Darkness covers the earth and gross darkness on the people, but I will arise upon you
and My glory will be seen around and about you if you heed My warnings and walk closely with
your God. How you choose to live has eternal consequences.
 (See Isaiah 60:1-5; Matthew 6:10; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; 2 Peter 3:9; 15-18)


My Son warned you clearly:


       "I Am the Vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will
       bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in
       Me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked
       up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in Me and My words remain in
       you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. This is to My Father's glory,
       that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be My disciples. As the Father has
       loved Me, so have I loved you. Now remain in My love." John 15:5-9


Remain, remain, remain in My Son - remain in the Vine! Many believe they can presume to
proclaim that they love My Son, yet go about doing whatever they feel like doing. My word is
clear on that way of thinking:


       What then are we to say? Should we continue in sin in order that grace may abound? By
       no means! How can we who died to sin go on living in it? Do you not know that all of us
       who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? Therefore we
       have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from
       the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. Gal 6:1-4


       But if your heart turns away and you do not hear, but are led astray .I declare to you
       today that you shall perish; you shall not live long in the land that you are crossing.This
       day I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and
       death, blessings and curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live,
       loving the LORD your God, obeying Him, and holding fast to Him. For the Lord is your
       life.
                                                                Deuteronomy 30:17a, 18a, 19, 20a
        Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness.
        Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him
        stumble. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the
        darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him. I
        write to you, dear children, because your sins have been forgiven on account of His
        name. 1 John 2:9-12


        Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
        If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he
        deceives himself and his religion is worthless. James1:22, 26


Do not willfully sin beloved child. My precious gift of perfected love was not given lightly -
Jesus paid not only your bail but also served your sentence. I tell you again, to purposefully and
willfully sin, knowing I Am merciful mocks the blood that was shed for sin and God is not
mocked. The reason many mock Jesus' blood and are totally oblivious to this deadly delusion is
because they refuse to be corrected by My Spirit of Truth. I ask you to allow yourself to be
corrected, beloved. "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near." I desire for you to yield a
great harvest of peaceable fruit which is My righteousness worked out in you. Will you allow
Me to show you the more excellent way?
   (Please see Isaiah 61:1; Psalm 107: 1-16; Matthew 4:17; 1 Corinthians 12:31; Hebrews 12:11)
Love,
Abba

2007 - The Year of Cadence
Part Five: The Least Shall Be Greatest
Will you allow yourself to become great in My kingdom by becoming the least? If you will
serve mankind as Jesus served, you will be given great authority in this age and the ages to come.
Do you choose to join in cadence with My will? My army readily pledges their allegiance to
Jesus. This is not about your race, gender, age, nationality, social/spiritual/military status,
education, or religious denomination. I Am not impressed with your résumé. Those who hear
Me pledge their allegiance to the Lamb of God who alone is worthy to open the scrolls. Jesus
was obedient to the Cross and it is My desire for you to walk in obedience for eternal life! The
gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it. The army
which awakens, hearkens to My voice, and marches in cadence with My will - are Mine. He
who endures to the end will be saved.
                                 (Matthew 7:14; 24:13; Luke 9:48; 2 John 1:6; Ephesians 1:20-23;
                                        Galatians 3:28; Philippians 2:2, 3, 8-13; Revelation 5:9-14)


In My Word it is recorded that the disciples of Jesus were arguing as to whom among them
would be most famous. My Son perceived their hearts and gave them an illustration using a
child. He sat the child next to Him and said, "Whoever welcomes this child in My name
welcomes Me, and whoever welcomes Me welcomes the One who sent Me; for the least
among all of you is the greatest."
                                                                                  (See Luke 9:46-48)
You will be known by your fruit.


What is in your heart? How well does the Lord know you? Do you call Jesus, "Lord"? Beloved,
examine yourself carefully for so did the five foolish virgins:
       "Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he
       replied, Truly I tell you, I do not know you." Matthew 25:11, 12
       Jesus said, "Many will say to Me, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name,
       and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?" Then I will tell
       them plainly, "I never knew you. Away from Me, you evildoers!" (Matthew 7:22)


Do you see how important it is for Jesus to know you?
My Son did not tell this to His disciples for shock value. Indeed many will say this and they will
be known in My kingdom as "evil-doers" for they sought their own fame and not My perfected
will. They took the bait of Satan to build their own kingdom and sought fame and fortune for
themselves using the power of My Son's name. They will not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
The five foolish virgins were shut out of the wedding banquet. They thought calling Him "Lord"
was enough. They believed being a virgin was enough. These five even had lamps as they
waited. However, they presumed they did not have to take the time and invest their resources to
buy oil to keep their way lit until My Son's return. You are the light of the world but you cannot
come into My kingdom if you walk in darkness. It is not My desire for any to perish. It is My
deepest desire to say the words to you, "Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been
faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your
master's happiness!" So follow the instructions I left to guide you into My eternal kingdom.
Walk in the light as He is in the light. Be as the wise virgins and awaken from your slumber,
trim your wick, fill your lamps with My oil, and come meet the Bridegroom.
                                       (See Matthew 5:14; 6:23; 7;13-20; 25:1-13; 23; 1 John 1:7)


Recall the parable of the two men who both heard the words of the Lord and one was likened to
building on rock and the other on sand. Though they each heard the words, only one of the men
actually put My words into action. He was wise. The other man heard the words but did not do
them. He was foolish. They both had harsh storms of life hit them. Both had to endure.
However, only one stood after the storms had passed because he had listened and obeyed the
word of the Lord. That man was likened to one who built his house on the rock. I Am the Rock.
You know this, but you also need to know that you must put into action what I am telling you. I
want you to stand! If you do not walk in obedience to My word, you will be as the foolish man
whose house is lost. Would you not want to avoid losing everything? This is My desire for you
as well, dear one. So walk in My love, walk in obedience. Rejoice for great is your reward.
  (See Deuteronomy 32:4; Matthew 7:24-27; 25:1-13, 23; Luke 6:35; Philemon 1:21; 2 John 1:6)


In all these illustrations, and many others, Jesus sincerely warned the disciples of the importance
of walking obedient to the word of God and by His Spirit He is now sincerely warning you. You
cannot live with one foot in the world (toying with sin) and one foot in the kingdom (seeking My
heavenly rewards). Those giving Jesus lip-service will not come into the kingdom of God. Do
you not understand that I AM is capable of cutting directly through to the truth of your
motivations? I know your heart better than you do. There is a reason it is written in the Word:


       "The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? I the
       LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct,
       according to what his deeds deserve." Jeremiah 17:9, 10


Please dear Church, I am pleading with you to repent from hidden sin and come back to Me with
the total abandonment of a child in mid leap. I WILL catch you! Does My Word tell you to
come to Me as a child? Trust Me, I will catch you!
                                                 (See Matthew 18:1-5; deeply ponder Luke 12:1-5)


There is only obedience or disobedience. Good intentions are not obedience.
                              (See Hebrews 2:1-3; 5:8-10; 1 John 3:21-24; 5:3-5; Revelations 3:3)


Turn away from that thing. It is the thing that you seek to keep hidden and do not anyone to find
out. It is that thing that you know you spend too much time with that has become more
important to you than anything - including Me. You know what it is, because as you read this,
you know what you need to turn away from. Lay it down and turn to Me. The hour is late. I
have already told you this many times through many voices. I love you deeply and I have much
for you to do in this year, but the first step is to destroy the thing that you spend more time with
than you do Me. As it is written, I Am a jealous God and you shall have no other gods before
Me. My desire is for you and sharing you with worldly things is intolerable for Me. In a very
real sense, you are prostituting yourself and wanting Me to bless you in it. I cannot and I will not
do that. Please test your works. Are they good works or My best?
                                      (Please read Exodus 20:3 and ponder 1 Corinthians 3:11-17)


Beloved, throughout this word there has been a great deal of correction. I commend you for
pushing through it. If you do not hear this by the Spirit, you will hear condemnation. Remember
that there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Any correction you have
received comes from the heart of the Father who loves you more than you could ever love
yourself. I will wipe every tear from your eyes. You are cherished.


Love,
Abba


May God's love be yours in abundance both now and forever,
Judy Bauman

Enter My Rest

An Exhortation from the Father

When the children of Israel hardened their hearts against Me, even though they had seen
with their own eyes the Red Sea open and I brought them safely across, I sword an oath
not to let them enter My rest.

My children today go by their feelings. They have placed themselves in a dangerous
position by trusting their feelings over My word and My ways. My church has largely
forgotten that I have issued a warning through My son and prophet, Jeremiah, that the
heart is wicked and cannot be trusted. My preachers have turned from preaching My word
to a gospel that is not of the Cross of My Son, Jesus. They say, "Follow your heart!" Oh
what a sly and subtle deception this little piece of advice is to My people. They then follow
their hearts and turn away from My precepts which are perfected in My love.
I disciple those I love, so do not harden your hearts as in the days at Massah in the desert.
Come worship and bow down before the Lord and God, your Maker. Come enter My rest.

Abba

Come Beloved

Come Beloved
A word from the Lord's heart to yours



November 6, 2007



My Beloved, you who are called by My name, do you know how I long for you to come sit by
My side - to allow My arms to wrap around you and hold you close? Come close Sweet One and
allow Me to love you. Allow Me to wipe the tears from your cheek and take the trauma from
your heart.

Do not stand aloof from Me doubting My love and care for you. You have not wronged Me. I
see Your struggles and I struggle with you. The suffering you face, have faced, and will face
will fade in the light of My glory.

Come My Loved One and sit with Me. Let Me show you how I will redeem what you have
thought was lost. In My light you will see that nothing, not even the precious thing taken, has
been lost. No Beloved, it is all in My hands. I hold everything in the palm of My hands, so give
your heart the peace that it needs in knowing that in My love there is nothing lost - nothing
broken.

As I have told you, this is a season of restoration and you will look back, at a time not far from
now, and behold all that has been restored to you. In that day of revelation you will stand amazed
and rejoice praising the LORD your God for what has been done. On that day may you look up to
where your help drew nigh and give praises to your Father who loves you.

Come Beloved, come and gaze into My eyes and look deep into the pools of revelation. Allow
Me to speak to your heart so that you can not only have peace in the storm, but you can speak
peace into the storms. This gift is not only for your benefit but for the benefit of those around
you. Just as I calmed the storm for My disciples, you will calm the storms for those who come to
you for guidance. Because you lead them to Me, and have not taken them for yourself, I will
multiply the arrows in your quiver.
Come My Beloved, My Lovely One, come and let Me show you the universe as I see it - the true
way it was designed. Let Me show you what it looks like through My eyes. Listen to My voice
and hear the sounds of creation through My ear. Do you not know that this was all created for
you? All of creation groans to see you walk in the authority I gave My life for you to have. I
want you to walk in the truth and in the understanding of the universe I created. I created it for
you! I created it for your good pleasure.

Come My Beloved, My Friend, My Passion. Come and sit with Me and let Me love you the way
you were intended to be loved. You can trust Me. I will never hurt nor will I abandon you. I
Am Faithful and I love you with an everlasting love.

So come Beloved. Come and sit in the light of My glory and let Me love you. Come and see
where I intend to take you. The heights I will take you will cause every particle of your being to
throb with joy.

Come Beloved, I Am waiting for you.



The Season Of Restoration

The season of restoration has begun. For some it will be a time of great rejoicing as My hand
works on their behalf, but for others in My church who have been busy building their own
kingdoms, they will see destruction come quickly into their projects.

This is the season that I have chosen to restore what the locusts have eaten.

Oct 12, 2007
5:45pm

This is a season when you will see great and mighty works by My hand. You will see your
mountains moved. You will behold My glory and know that I Am God and it is I, not man, who
has moved your mountain.

Stand in faith and know that I Am your Defense; I Am your Shield; I Am your Healer; I Am
your Ever-present Help in times of trouble; I Am your Comfort and I Am your Provider. Do not
look to man to do what only I can do, says the Lord.

Give to Me what belongs to Me as I will not share My glory with flesh. As you behold My
miracles do not look at the vessels I use. They are only instruments in My hand.
Know that I love you and that it is My desire to roll away the reproach from your life so that all
shame will vanish in the light of My glory. I love you with an everlasting love. I call you
"friend". So do not fear, for I Am with you. Do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will
strengthen you and I will help you. I will uphold you in My Righteous Right Hand.

My children will not be left orphans. They belong to Me and no one can remove them from My
hand.

So come boldly to My Throne of Grace and behold My salvation, My provision and My love.
You will not be ashamed.

"Fathers, Do You KNOW Who You Are?"
An Exhortation from God the Father

       Readers: While this word is directed specifically to the fathers, this message is not
       only for fathers, nor is it for men only. It is for all who are called by His name. In
       Christ there is no gender as we are all one in Christ. See Galatians 3:28

Do you know who you are, son? Man was created in My image and in My image you reflect
My love or lack thereof. You are the very reflection of God Almighty on earth. When people
look at you they see Me. When your children look at you they either see My love, grace,
mercy, faithfulness and patience or they see your judgment, condemnation, perfectionism,
apathy, and anger as a reflection of My character. Do not allow a bitter root to spring from
you and defile many. (See Hebrews 12:15) The fruits of the flesh and the fruits of the
Spirit are very apparent. (See Galatians 5:19-26) So what are you reflecting to your
children and to those you mentor? What do you reflect to those who are subordinate to
you? (See Ephesians 6:9) As an example, how do you speak of those who are superior to
you in authority? (See 1 Tim 2:1-4; Titus 3:1, 2)

Many desire to know exactly what I have called them to do and where they are to be. The
perfection of My plan will unfold moment by moment and day by day as you bend your will
to Mine. Do not look to the right or to the left. Let not your hearts be troubled. Do what I
have asked you to do and then we will move onto the next thing together. Do not despise
the day of small beginnings. He who is faithful with little will be given much. (See John
14:1; Joshua 1:7; Zech 4:10, Luke 16:10)
Right now I want you to listen to what I tell you. You have heard that before the terrible
Day of the Lord I sent the prophet Elijah. My Son Jesus made it clear that John the Baptist
came in the spirit of Elijah to restore all things, and yet John clearly did not know who he
was. The angel told his father, Zechariah, but John did not understand the depth of his
calling. (See Matt 17:12, 13 and John 1:21) He did not know he was the Elijah to come and
restore all things. (See Luke 1:11-17)

Now I ask you: Do you know who you are? What was and what is the purpose of Elijah's
coming? Yes, he destroyed the false prophets of BAAL, but what was it he was to restore?
What do I desire to be restored now? Does not My word tell you? Does not My word make it
plain? The Old Testament ends with this strategic information and the New Testament in
the Gospel of Luke begins with it. So can you not see for yourself how plain I have made it?

       Malachi 4:5, 6 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming
       of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of
       the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest
       I come and smite the earth with a curse. KJV
       Malachi 4:5, 6 Lo, I will send you the prophet Elijah before the great and
       terrible day of the LORD comes. He will turn the hearts of parents to their
       children and the hearts of children to their parents, so that I will not come
       and strike the land with a curse. NRSV

       Luke 1: 17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to
       turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the
       wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. KJV
       Luke 1: 17 With the spirit and power of Elijah he will go before him, to turn
       the hearts of parents to their children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of
       the righteous, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord." NRSV

Many of you believe you are ready for My coming, but you are not ready. The hearts of the
fathers MUST return to the sons. The hearts of the parents must return to the children. In
the days to come My promptings will become very pointed and exacting. A breaking is
coming! The fathers are the ones closest to My reflection on earth and I am soon putting
My foot down. Those who are repentant will see great breakthroughs in every area of their
life, but those who are not will suffer great judgment from My hand.

The fathers must heed and obey. This will require them to humble themselves under My
mighty right hand, but those who obey will be lifted to new heights that will astonish even
the best of them.

What are at stake are financial blessings, healings and miracles, salvations and wholeness,
and more than the mind can conceive.

Many have cried out to Me for healing and financial breakthrough, but what they do not see
are their relationship with their families are first on My list. Warn the men, Judy, that
because they are a reflection of My glory on earth, it is time to align their will to Mine. The
hour is late! It is much later than most believe. Let it be done on earth as it is in heaven.

I Am praying for the fathers. I Am praying for the parents. I Am praying for you. Reflect Me
well. Be who I called you to be - representatives of My love on earth. May it be done on
earth as it is in heaven. Selah
Love,
Abba

                                                                                     9:20 am

       Daniel 12:10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the
       wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but
       those who are wise will understand.

Do you see why the painful process of purification is so important? Refining you and
making you spotless is not only for the purpose of salvation. I desire for you to be with Me
and this process is important for your survival in the days to come.

Many stop at salvation and think that is enough, but if a soul does not allow the purification
that comes by My Spirit, then they will not be able to see in the dark days ahead. Behold
darkness covers the earth and gross darkness on the peoples, but to those who have
submitted themselves to My refining process - they will be given My keys - the keys to the
Kingdom. My glory, My light will shine through and around them.

Trumpet a call! Remind My church that I Am not slow in My coming, but merciful and just.
There are so many destined for My Kingdom that have not yet heard or understood the
Good News. My heart is patient for them.

Watch for distractions which keep you from My purpose.

Remember, a pregnant woman cannot partake in some activities nor do the things she once
did, neither can she expect to once the baby is born. So it is with you right now. Stay
close!
I desire for you to be wise. I desire for you to understand the keys to the Kingdom. You
will learn what they are, what they lock and what they unlock. The wise will understand.



When I Made the Earth
When I Made the Earth

An Exhortation from the Father: When I Made the Earth
                                                                            Given June 14, 2007
                                                                                       10:43am

"When I made the earth, what do you think I set out to do?"

After pondering this I replied, "I'm not sure, Lord. My first thought would be to make sons
and daughters."

"That is exactly right. I wanted to set up My dominion in the natural so that it could be
seen by all. I gave Satan the right to test My creation. If you do not know that you can still
trust Me when he comes with his seeds of doubt and distrust, then you cannot experience
the growth I want to see in you. If you do not come to know the truth, and that is that I
love you with an everlasting love - an extravagant love, then our reign together in eternity
would be tainted. You must know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I love you and you are
Mine.*

"This earth is full of the beauty of My creation which testifies of Me and My love for you.
But it is also full of darkness, greed, pride, fear, lying, murders and dissensions.

"I have given My best for you in My Son, Jesus. He has given His best by giving you His
Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit gives you His very best by revealing the Father and the Son and
our intentions towards and for you. So even though the world is full of darkness, it is also
possible to tap into My light and have it pour out into the nations and peoples of the earth.

"Creation consistently testifies of Me. The bird's song and flight, the trees in all their
splendor, the flowers - each one a magnificent work of art, the animals that intrigue
mankind, mountains that sing, rivers that roar, oceans vast and filled with worlds of their
own, lakes that bring refreshing to the soul, sunlight that gives life to it all, and a universe
just waiting to be explored! This list goes on and on.

"Child, if people's eyes were not blinded by the prince of this world they could see and hear
Me in everything around them. They do not believe because they have, in many cases,
chosen to look at what is bad, ugly, hateful, spiteful, and lying. They choose it! They speak
it! They revel in it! If they would think on things that are pure and holy and good then
their eyes would see and behold Me in everything they do. Pray in the name of Jesus for
the blinders to be lifted.

"This is My desire:
Follow Me
Love Me
Give Me glory
Give Me honor

"Choose each day to give your attention to My voice. Choose each day to come and sit with
Me. Let Me pour into you My desires for the day - then watch it unfold! You will be so
excited when what I have shown you in prayer comes to pass in your day. Your delight is
My delight, child, your joy is My joy.

"I do not want you to fall into the trap of legalism. I am not saying to make a rule or lay
down a law. I am simply saying, ?Come to Me. Come to Me.'

"You know My word tells you that when you come I will give you rest. Watch and see what
I show you. I plan to give you ideas, inventions and creative ways to fund My kingdom
work.

"Be still, dear one, and know - KNOW - that I Am God."

Love,
Abba

Overcome Evil With Good
Overcome Evil With Good

May 20, 2007

Personal journal entry:

Lord, this battle to ward-off discouragement seems to be my fight these days. I believe
your Word has shown us how to operate in our families, churches, and businesses. When
we go outside of that we open ourselves up to curses. Lord the way I see people try to
cheat one another is disheartening. Maybe this is just the way of the world, but I have
struggle such a when I see it - especially in the Body of Christ. My heart cries out for
justice! I hate injustice God. I hate those who shame and abandon - especially children.
Do I judge the very thing I do? Do I have a plank in my eye? If I do, let it be removed so I
can help get the speck out of my brother's eye. May righteousness and justice be the
foundation of earth as it is in heaven.

The Lord's response:

When I set up the foundation of My kingdom, I set it up in perfection. The earth is yet to be
established in My perfection.

You are right to examine your own heart for out of it flows the issues of life. Many have
hardened their hearts to My justice because they are wounded. They have been
disappointed so many times that they have given up and gone the way of the world. They
may love Me and call Me their Savior, God and Friend, but they so distrust their fellow man
that they operate continually in survival mode. They take whatever they can get out of
others, not realizing that in cheating others - believers or not - they will bring more poverty
into their lives.

Do not judge them for this as their lives have been traumatized. They need encouragement
to come up higher. Remember how much I have wrestled with you to obey My voice.

I will open the locked doors. I will break the chains of poverty and sickness. Those who
operate in survival mode and forget my precepts will continue to struggle. I desire to save
them from their despair, but they must be contrite in spirit and come to repentance. They
must turn from selfish ways. (See Luke 19:8-10) Their hearts must turn to trust Me and
not doubt. Many who live in dreadful poverty have great faith, child, so strengthen that
which remains. I will set them free.

Stand, watch and be amazed, child. I will make a way in the dark forest. I will part the
trees. I will pour out from heaven such an abundance on those who obey that they will not
be able to contain it. I do so because I can trust them to give to others in need. But I will
not share My glory.

          Romans 12: 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Who Is Leading?

Jewels From Judy: Who Is Leading?
An Exhortation from the Father

May 30, 2007 10:46am

There is a time for everything. All things that distract you from coming into My presence are
temporal and fleeting. The only thing that abides is My Kingdom. The things you need to do
will go smoother as you wait in My presence.

There is a time to wait and there is a time to act. As you sit and wait upon Me, I will show you
what to do, where to go, how to do everything you need to do. Jesus is your example, so follow
His lead. He did not do anything unless I showed him first. He did not say anything unless I
told Him first. So be still and know that I Am God. Let me show you what you are to do and
where you are to go, what you are to say and how you are to say it. Let me lead you in this
dance.

In the Father's love,

Judy Bauman

This word reminded me of a song He gave me two years ago.

Vision

Vision

April 28, 2007

When I give vision to a person, I give it for My purpose and My plan. It is never to exalt that
person but to build My Body. When a vision is from Me you can know that it will include many
people working together as the Living Stones that I have brought together for that purpose. When
people of similar vision come together something electrifying happens. There is a strength that
binds them together. If this is not done in My love and in My power, then it fails. Now that is not
to say that anything that is successful is of Me, but I am talking about [true] kingdom work. I
will take every mistake and use it for good if a person will just bow their will to Me. I do not
desire for any to fail just as I do not desire any to perish. People are destroyed for lack of
knowledge, child. They do not know that they do not know.

It is important as a leader to be patient with people and show them My love. It is My love that
destroys [ungodly] yokes. It is My love that restores the breach. It is My love that makes you
more than a conqueror! It is My love. If you have not love you are nothing but a noisy, clanging
sound that bangs in My ears.

If you think that you can be more focused on your vision without including others, then you have
not seen the full vision. Seek Me early. Seek Me while I can be found. Do not slumber when I
call you to come and sit with Me. Choose the best and not the good. Choose to lead in My love.
Choose to follow in My love. Choose to stand firm in My love. Then watch and see how I will
move. You will stand amazed when you really grasp My vision. So come. Sit. See. Grasp. Run!

You sing, "There is none like You." But I tell you the truth. "There is none like you!" I the Lord your God
could search for all eternity long and find there is none like you.

You are unique and wonderfully made for a purpose I have purposed in My heart for this day, this hour,
this season for you to come up out of your despair. I tell you that I Am not One to leave things undone.
I Am the Author and Finisher of your faith.

I Am here to heal, to restore, to bring hope and give you all the tools you need to successfully go into
this next season. The harvest for this coming season is great and you need the tools I Am giving.

So stand with your hands open to receive these tools by faith.

There Is None Like You

There is none like You
No one else can touch my heart like You do
I could search for all eternity long
And find there is none like You

Your mercy flows like a river wide
And healing comes from Your hands
Suffering children are safe in Your arms
There is none like You



The Desires of My Heart
                                                                                     March 4, 2007

The Desires of My Heart

Do you really want to know My love for you? If this is truly your heart's desire, then you will
have it. Seeking Me is seeking the Greater. So many are seeking but they seek many things
apart from Me. I Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one by any other means shall find joy
- the fullness of their desires - when what they desire is outside of Me and My will for their life.

 If you seek Me you seek the best and it will in no way be taken from you. Heaven and earth
shall pass away, but My Word stands forever.

 I will tell you many desire that which is contrary to My will. I will not grant the desire of your
heart if your heart is far from Me. People have methods to ?pray' to Me, but they are often like
the man who said, "Oh God, thank you that I am not a sinner like this man next to me!" They
carefully construct their prayers to sound good, but they stink in My nostrils - they reek with the
stench of flesh and death.

Yes, you must go beyond yourself and truly seek Me and My desires. Learn of Me for I Am
humble of heart. If you study and learn what I desire, you will see what to pray. You will know
what is flesh and what is Spirit. You will be able to rightly divide between what is the truth and
a lie, what is My desire and what is flesh, what serves Me and what is self-serving.

 You have to go beyond what you see. You have to step into the realm of faith where what you
do not see is more real to you than what you do see because you recognize My desire - My will.
I Am Spirit and you must worship Me in Spirit and in truth. As soon as you do this you will be
taught My desires. As you do this you will break through the veil. You will walk through the
wall. You will find yourself translated like Philip. I will reveal the desire of My heart if you will
lay yours on the altar.



                          Please confirm this message: Jeremiah 29:13;

                                 Luke 18:10-14; 21:33; Mark 7:6;

My Glory In Earthen Vessels
My Glory In Earthen Vessels

                                                                                 February 18, 2007

It is My earthen vessels that I choose to pour My glory into and through. This glory is not
for you to touch or handle, but you surely are allowed to enjoy it. As you let it flow through
you, the joy of My glory will strengthen your weary heart.

You try to carry too much, beloved. You pray, but let Me do the carrying. The burden I
place on you is to walk with Me. My burden is easy and My burden is light, so set down the
heavy backpack you are carrying and let Me pick it up. It did not actually belong to you in
the first place.

Let Me fill you with My glory and you can carry that to the nations and to the lost sheep of
Israel.

Let Me consume you with My passion, My zeal and My love for you. Open up and let Me fill
you - then let it spill out onto others.



Separation
                                                                                    11:25 am

When separation comes to kill, steal and destroy the heart is often wounded beyond
recognition. Whether this separation comes from death, injury, illness, divorce,
disagreements, time or space - it doesn't matter to the soul.

The death of a family member can be as devastating as a misunderstanding that estranges
friends. If it separates, it wounds. If you come into My presence and allow Me to mold your
heart, it will no longer be what it was before the wounding. It will not be the battered mess
that it is, it will be transformed into a new creation in Christ. I will, in a sense, take a
syringe and inject you with My DNA. That is when I can shape you into Our image. That is
when I can take the earthen clay and mold it into the exact shape of My desire.

You are being changed from glory to glory and this is why, beloved, I want you to count it
all joy when you face trials. Even your failures are ground up and used as the paint that I
chose to use to give you color. I Am the Potter and you are the clay! Nothing is wasted.
Nothing, child.

So no more tears. Dry your eyes and stand up and brush yourself off. Know that I will
shape bend and mold you, but I will do it My way and in My time.

                                                                           February 24, 2007

                                                                         'The Barn' Gathering
                                                                        Social Circle, GA, USA

                                                                                      7:15pm
Taste and See


Yes child, you are here in this place to taste and see that the Lord is good. The songs that
flow from the hearts (of those gathered here) are songs that flow from My Throne of Glory.
In this you can rejoice with the angels who continually abide in My presence. You can freely
rejoice as you sense My Spirit flow into and through the hearts and minds of My beloved.

The violent praises of My children take the enemy by surprise. He is ambushed by such as
these.

You cry for Me to come, and I tell you plainly, I Am here! I have been walking amongst you
and bring to you My peace and righteousness. Give Me your heart - that un-molded lump of
clay and let Me mold it and make it new. Watch Me take the wounds of the past and mold
them into something new. Behold I take My holy syringe and I will penetrate your heart - I
Am injecting you now with My DNA.

When the paternity test is taken all will know that you belong to your Daddy! All will know
that you look like your Daddy! You are My heir.

The earth groans for your manifestation. Arise! Shine!

Let My glory be seen around and about you. Your heart is now full of My joy.



The Eyes of My Heart
The Eyes of My Heart

                                                                                January 21, 2007

Child, when you look into the eyes of My heart you will only see My love and devotion towards
you. If you look for condemnation, you will not find it. If you are feeling condemned, come.
Come look into the eyes of My heart and see yourself the way I see you. I see you in the light of
perfected love given to you through the Cross of Calvary. My Son, Jesus, is what I see when I
look at you as you are in Him.

I ask you to guard your heart for out of it flows the issues of life. You have an enemy and he is
the accuser of the brethren. So if a voice of condemnation is moving you, know that it is a voice
that moves you away from My perfect love for you. Perfect love, that is to say, love that has
been perfected in you, will cast out all fear. Allow My perfect love to cast out the fear in you.
Beloved, let My love cast out that condemning voice.

Stand in My holy light and allow Me to shine through the darkness. Let My love for you break
down the walls you have built up around you. Those walls do not protect you. They keep you
from letting Me in. Trust Me. Let Me be your protection. I Am your Shield and Strength. I Am
well able to keep you in My care.

Trust Me, follow Me, invite Me to be with you where you are. I will never forsake you. Look
into the eyes of My heart, says the Lord your God, and see that My love for you is complete. My
love will see you through every season. Look into the eyes of My heart, beloved.

This exhortation comes from the Father brooding over me for a number of days and weeks. I
have been like a woman carrying a promised child awaiting its birth. Now the time for this has
come and it has been brought forth with much labor and travail. This word is birthed out of His
great and mighty love for us. To those of you who feel that you are just barely hanging on, know
that the Lord is extending special grace to you in this season. Perfect love casts out all fear, so
beloved, do not grow weary in well doing as you will reap a harvest if you faint not. It is my
prayer that God will strengthen your hearts and minds so that you may stand blameless and holy
in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones. I pray
you will be as a Berean and search the Scriptures. (Acts 17:11) Because of its length I will send
it to those on my list in 5 parts.


Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Judy


An Exhortation from the Father


2007 - The Year of Cadence
Part One: To My people who are called by My name:


As you enter into and proceed through 2007, I do not desire for you to make resolutions for this
year, I desire for you to make a revolution. This revolution is not to occur outside in the world,
but on the inside of your heart and mind. This word is not meant to merely impact you over just
one year; it must change you for life. I desire a revolution of purity and holiness in the people
who are called by My name. It is time to fervently seek My face. I do not ask this of
unbelievers; I ask this of you. It is time by the power of My Spirit to utterly put to death the
misdeeds of the body so that you will live. I tell you it is time to overthrow your fleshly nature.
Your flesh and all its desires are no longer to govern you. Do not sit idle and think of ways to
gratify the desires of the sinful nature. It is time for those who call themselves Mine to wake up!
It is time to move. The slumber that you have been in has been deep, and rousting you awake
has taken much time and energy. What will it take to get your attention?
                 (See 2 Chronicles 7:14; Romans 13:11-14; Ephesians 5:13-17; Revelation 3:2, 3)


The hour has come for you to completely wake up from your slumber, because your salvation is
nearer now than when you first believed. Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, put on
My armor, put on My light, put on My love, put on a garment of Praise. If you really want to see
breakthrough in your life, take off the old man and deeds of darkness. Put on Christ! My soldiers
- those who are the ambassadors of My love - are lining up. They are the ones who have been
tried in My fire and have been tested in the wilderness. They have gone through many fastings
and times of consecrated prayer. They know My voice and another they will not follow. These
are the ones I trust to carry the fire of My love for the nations and to the nations. My love wins
all battles. I Am calling you today to be part of that army. I Am asking you to get into
formation. I Am beckoning you to war against hate with My love and forgiveness. Blessed are
the merciful for they will be shown mercy. Each time you choose mercy over judgment you
overthrow the powers of darkness. Judge not or you will be judged. Instead, send confusion into
the camp of the enemy by forgiving offenses. When the enemy seeks to strike at you, turn and
praise and worship your God! Confound him with your praises of victory as My people did
when they were surrounded by the enemy at The Valley of Berachah. You are more than
conquerors through Christ who loves you, so go into the battle knowing that you have already
won.
  (See 2 Chronicles 20:1-26; Isaiah 61:3; Matthew 5:7; 7:1, 2; Luke 6:36; John 3:16; 10:4, 5, 27;
   Romans 8:13; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21; Galatians 3:27; Ephesians 6:10-18; Colossians 3:1-17; 2
                                                                                            Tim 2:4)


There is a sound on the horizon, My dearly loved children, friends and soldiers. Do you hear it?
It is the sound of My army. It is the sound of cadence. It is the sound of My army marching in
step with Me and along side My heavenly angelic hosts. Can you hear the sound of heaven? Can
you hear the cadence in your heart? Do you feel the rhythm beating within every fiber of your
being? This is a military like no other. I provided for your atonement and I can provide
anything you need in any situation. This army has been given powerful weapons and has been
trained to use them by My Spirit because they are spiritual weapons. They are mighty in the
pulling down of strongholds. Take every thought captive, beloved, and make your will obey the
ways of your King! My will be done. Line up, fall in, march, follow Me.
                                   (See Isaiah 51:4-7; Matthew 6:10; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5; Acts 2:2)


My grace has been extended in an extraordinary way to those who heeded the word and
submitted their flesh to My Spirit in 2006. Even if it were a failed attempt, I see your heart and a
double measure of grace is given to you now to walk in victory. Receive it. Receive My grace.
This is not about your keeping a set of rules. This is about following Me, trusting Me, and
seeking My counsel in every area of your life. As you walk in step with Me in 2007 and allow
Me to bring you into spiritual perfection, you will see miracles flow freely from My storeroom
into the places of greatest need. The release of My grace will be clearly seen and not hidden in a
back room. Believers and unbelievers alike will stand in awe together. So rise up in My love
and soar to new heights by My hand and My provision. My grace is sufficient. My power is
made perfect in your weakness.
              (Deuteronomy 28:2; Proverbs 3:5-8; Isaiah 52:2; Matthew 24:27; 2 Corinthians 12:9)
Love,
Abba

2007 - The Year of Cadence
Part Two: My Desires for My Church
Let Me tell you what I desire. I desire to see My beloved Church arise in unity and strength. I
desire to see My Church step in time. I long to see you revolutionized by walking in My ways.
My ways are pure and holy and true and you will be blessed and whole and healed as you walk
in them. O rejoice at this news dear ones! Does My word tell you that I desire to see the whole
Body of Christ built up, joined and held together by every supporting ligament? Yes! I yearn to
see you grow and built up in love. Do not live as the unbelievers do, in the futility of their
thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of
the hardening of their hearts. As it is written in Scripture:


       "Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion." Hebrews
       3:7, 8a


Those written of in this Scripture never entered into My rest. Do not be stubborn like they were
in their disbelief. See to it that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from
Me. Instead run to Me! Run to the Mercy Seat for this is the hour of grace. Return to the joy of
your salvation. Encourage one another every day as long as it is called Today, so that none of
you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness.
    (See Psalm 103:3; 133:1; John 17:23; Romans 15:5; Ephesians 4:11-18; Hebrews 3:19; 4:16)


I Am asking you to view your circumstances and the circumstances of those around you from
My heavenly perspective. Follow Jesus' example; He did nothing without seeing Me do it first.
He acknowledged that He could do nothing in Himself and taught you that you can do nothing in
yourself. Let me show you everything as I showed Him. I want you to see what is going on
around you and your world from My vantage point - from My overwatch(1). Ask for the eyesight
of an eagle. I will freely give the keen vision of an eagle to whosoever will ask Me. I want you
to be able to see afar off. Ask Me for the ointment and I will heal your eyes. They are dimmed
from having to strain and squint to see through the darkness of this world. I have much for you
to see because the enemy is advancing in unparalleled ways. What is impossible for man is
possible with God. Only believe.
                 (See John 5:19, 20; 6:28, 29; 14:9-14; Mark 5:36; 10:27; Revelation 3:18; 12:14)
Satan's time is short and he grows increasingly ruthless. He desires to blind you completely by
poisoning your vision. He does not want you to see him as he advances. He uses camouflage to
trick My church. He uses your own flesh and its desires against you with the goal to destroy
you. Be careful what you look at and bring into My temple. You are My temple and I love you!
I tell you this to protect you and not to keep you from "fun". While sin may seem fun for a
season, you must understand that Satan's goal is to steal, kill and destroy you, and he is using
your own flesh to do it. Your carnal nature is drawn to sin, so you must war within your
members and take every thought captive to make it obedient to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Remember though, Satan and his demons are not omnipresent nor can they read your mind. Do
not get into agreement with his lies. Do not give him and his cohorts power over your life. He
can only gain it if you hand it to him. Do not assign to him what belongs to Me and that is glory.
Do not glorify him. My church tends to speak over and over again what Satan and his demons
are doing and that glorifies them; it magnifies them. Come! Magnify the Lord! Wash the
venom from your eyes in My Living Water. Jesus disarmed the powers and authorities of
darkness. He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the Cross. Look at what
Jesus has done to defeat them. Speak of what He has done to set you free. Jesus came to give
you life and give it to you in abundance. Glorify Him!
               (See Psalm 34:3; John 5:20, 21; 8:36; 10:10; Romans 7:21-25; 2 Corinthians 10:5;
                                   Galatians 5:19-21; Colossians 2:13-15; Revelation 12:12; 14:7)


Be wise with your words and be wise in your treatment of others. Be wise with all that you say
and do. If you follow Jesus' two commandments - to love the Lord your God with all your heart,
soul and mind, and love your neighbor as yourself - then it will be well with your soul. This is
not to say you will not suffer hardship. You will. That thinking is in direct conflict with My
Word and is from "another gospel". Jesus taught that tribulation would come, but that He had
overcome the world. The prince of this world had nothing on Jesus, and as you are in Christ,
Satan has nothing on you either. Take joy in that knowledge!
                          (See Matthew 12:37; 22:36-40; 24:9-14; Luke 7:35; John 14:30; 16:33)


Love,
Abba



(1)
   Overwatch - The term overwatch originates in U.S. military doctrine. In modern warfare overwatch is the state
of one military vehicle supporting another unit while they are executing fire and movement tactics. An
overwatching unit has taken a position where it can observe the terrain ahead. The overwatch position can
especially search out enemy positions. This allows it to provide effective covering for advancing friendly units.

Part Three: The Meat of the Matter:


Understand that I Am the God of the universe and I Am is inviting you to My war-room. Will
you come? This is not a time for the weak or faint of heart. It is time for mighty men and
woman of valor to rise up and take their place. It is time to come out of the caves and advance
My kingdom and My purpose. Be careful not to have any agenda but Mine. Your agenda will
surely cause you to drift off the course of My plan. My plan is perfect. Trust that I will assign
your post, so do not try to figure out where you are to be and what you are to do, as it is up to Me
to determine your position. I will assign your duties. I will make it plain. If you try to place
yourself or elevate your own rank in My army, it is likely that you will choose to go somewhere
and do something you think sounds like the best assignment. You must trust Me that this could
be a fatal miscalculation on your part. If you assign yourself to the post of your comfort and
choosing, you will most likely be in direct opposition to My purpose and plan for your life. I
Am God of the heavenly hosts and saints. I do know what is best for you. Once you know what
position I have called you to, march to it and go forth with confidence, not arrogance, beloved,
with confidence in Me to see you through every battle and to provide your every need. Stand
alert, so if your orders change, quickly comply and move to your new post. If you do not trust
Me to command you, then who is your Lord? Have you accepted My Son as Savior, but not
made Him your Lord? I ask you to trust your heavenly Father. I discipline those I love. Allow
Jesus to be your King, Ruler, and Lord of your life.
                                     (See Exodus 15:3; 1 Corinthians 12:4-14; Philippians 2:2-11;
                                          Hebrews 12:4-8, 11; 1 John 5:14; Revelation 4:1, 19:19)


Remember that the weapons that I have provided to My army are mighty in the pulling down of
strongholds. These are not natural weapons but spiritual ones because you are in a spiritual
battle. However, I issue this warning: Do not pick up the weapons of your enemy or you will
become like your enemy. Satan's weapons are jealousy, suspicion, gossip, envy, dissension,
discord, slander, factions, contention, strife, unforgiveness, bitterness, wrath, anger, hatred and
the like. These are rampant in the church and come from a spirit of pride. Satan wants you to
emulate him and I have given you the choice as to whom you will serve. So choose wisely!
Have I not warned you in My Word that those who practice such things will not enter into My
kingdom? Do not emulate the devil. Satan prowls around and seeks to destroy you. He plans to
use the death of his servants as an excuse to wage war against the saints. Use My weapons, not
the weapons of this world to disarm him and his demons. Pick up the sword of My Word and use
it to demolish the evil one's plans to destroy you, your family, those you love and those to whom
you are bound by My Spirit. I will give you wisdom and skill to use it. My Word is your sword.
Wield it only against the enemy. Do not be found to be one that wounds a brother or sister in
Christ when using My Word - your Bible. This is a form of self-mutilation as you are all one
body. Instead, love one another deeply with the love (agape) that I give because love covers a
multitude of sin. Strengthen, comfort and encourage each other with My Holy Scriptures.
Rulers, authorities, principalities and powers of darkness do not have any defense against My
love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness or self-control. When you
walk in the fruit of My Spirit; when you love those who hate you and pray for those who
persecute you; when you forgive grievances and bear with one another; when you refuse to allow
a root of bitterness to take hold of you; when you take up your cross and follow Jesus - then you
are demolishing the devil's plans. Walk in victory, beloved! You are known in heaven as My
chosen, as My elect, and as My children. Walk humbly before both your God and mankind; if
you do, you will have great authority in and by My Spirit. Be faithful until death, and I will give
you the crown of life.
    (See Micah 6:8; Luke 9:23-27; 14:27; 1 Corinthians 14:3; Galatians 5:19-26; Ephesians 6:17;
 Colossians 3:11-17; Hebrews 12:15; 2 Tim 2:24; 1 Peter 2:9-12; 4:8; 5:8, 1 John 5:2; Revelation
                                                                                               2:10)


This is the greatest warfare that mankind can be engaged in and I am calling you to join My
army. Will you walk in My love? If these terms of engagement are difficult for you to envision,
again I encourage you to ask Me for the eye ointment to heal your vision so that you can see
from My vantage point. The heavenly view is lovely, beloved!


         "I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may be rich; and
        white robes to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nakedness from being seen;
        and salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. I reprove and discipline those
        whom I love. Be earnest, therefore, and repent. Listen! I Am standing at the door,
        knocking; if you hear My voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with
        you, and you with Me. To the one who conquers I will give a place with Me on My
        throne, just as I Myself conquered and sat down with My Father on His throne. Let
        anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches."
        Revelation 3:18-22


Love,
Abba

2007 - The Year of Cadence
Part Four: Revelry! Awaken and Join the Cadence of Righteousness!


O My, beloved church, what will awaken you from your deep slumber? Many think I desire to
bring calamity to bring the world to its knees. This is not My desire. This has never been My
desire. I Am a merciful God and calamity grieves Me. The atonement for all sin for all time was
provided for you on the Cross of Calvary. Jesus' blood is the perfect sacrifice and no other is
needed. Great is My love! I desire for you to be on your knees because I Am your King and out
of your love and devotion towards Me. My desire for you to bow is to confess Jesus is Lord, not
because a calamity came your way and you sought Me out as your last resort. However, know
this, if a calamity has brought you to Me, all of heaven rejoices with Me! Whatever comes your
way that causes you to "come to yourself" and turn to Me, then know that I will RUN to meet
you. I will fit you with a robe, a ring and shoes for your feet to walk in My ways and in My
authority.
                           (See 1 Chronicles 21:15; Psalm 95:6; 103:8-14; Daniel 6:10; 10:10-15;
                                                Luke 15:10-24; Ephesians 5:14-17; Hebrews 9:26)


You are accepted in the Beloved, but do not think that I will take lightly the avoidance of My
correction. Everyone I love, I correct. Every child I accept, I discipline. Please do not lose heart
in the process. It is My desire for you to reap an abundant harvest. So I ask you, is Jesus your
Lord? If you say yes, yet you do not walk in His teachings, then you deceive yourself into
believing you are saved. If you do not do what He said, then you do not truly believe in your
heart that Jesus is Lord. If this offends you then ask Me to search your heart. I know you. I love
you deeply and My desire is for you to walk with Me. I will show you My truth and truth will
overcome your offenses and unbelief. You are to follow My Son, Jesus. Followers are to
follow, not to attempt to coerce Me to do what they think they want Me to do for them. Do not
take lightly the gift of grace given you. Do not think you may do whatever you feel like doing
and I will just look the other way on the Day. My child, you must see that I Am just, I Am holy,
I Am righteous. I Am impartial. You are misled if you think I will wink at your sin and let you
pass. Be responsible for your actions and allow My correction to heal you where you are hurt.
Be holy for I Am holy! Does this sound like a request? I warn not to mock the blood of My
Beloved Jesus shed for you on Calvary by walking in the ways of the world. Do not mock My
grace. If you operate in this spirit, I ask you to repent and receive My forgiveness. If you refuse
then you will suffer a dreadful blow. You are warned continually of this fact in Scripture and
you are warned now. ALL of My promises are "Yes" in Christ. This is not just for the blessings,
but also for the curses that I have so carefully warned you to avoid.
                                 (Psalm 139:23, 24; Matthew 4:19; Luke 9:62; Romans 3:22-26;
                 2 Corinthians 1:20; Galatians 6:7; Hebrews 12:5-7; 1 Peter 1:15-22; 1 John 1:9)


       See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you
       today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commands,
       decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you
       in the land you are entering to possess. Deuteronomy 30:15, 16


Many think that they are a special case and that they will be the one that will be exempt from My
laws, decrees and instruction. No one is exempt from My Word. Did I make an exception for
Jesus? Was He tested in the wilderness by the enemy? Did He seek Me to remove His cup?
Was He tempted in all things? Was He rejected and abandoned? Do you see? Not even Jesus
was exempt from My Word. I would not be a just and impartial God if even one person were
allowed exemption because I would be breaking My own Word. I will not do that. I did not
spare the natural branches. Consider therefore the kindness and the severity of God.
          (See Matthew 26:39; Luke 4:1-13; Romans 11:19-22; 1 Peter 2:21-25; 2 Peter 2:21-24)


These words that you hear may sound demanding and even harsh, but dear one, you must
understand what is at stake. Thousands of souls are on the line - including yours. You must
understand the times in which you live. You live in days which are perilous and fraught with
danger. Darkness covers the earth and gross darkness on the people, but I will arise upon you
and My glory will be seen around and about you if you heed My warnings and walk closely with
your God. How you choose to live has eternal consequences.
 (See Isaiah 60:1-5; Matthew 6:10; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; 2 Peter 3:9; 15-18)


My Son warned you clearly:


       "I Am the Vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will
       bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in
       Me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked
       up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in Me and My words remain in
       you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. This is to My Father's glory,
       that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be My disciples. As the Father has
       loved Me, so have I loved you. Now remain in My love." John 15:5-9


Remain, remain, remain in My Son - remain in the Vine! Many believe they can presume to
proclaim that they love My Son, yet go about doing whatever they feel like doing. My word is
clear on that way of thinking:


       What then are we to say? Should we continue in sin in order that grace may abound? By
       no means! How can we who died to sin go on living in it? Do you not know that all of us
       who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? Therefore we
       have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from
       the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. Gal 6:1-4


       But if your heart turns away and you do not hear, but are led astray .I declare to you
       today that you shall perish; you shall not live long in the land that you are crossing.This
       day I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and
       death, blessings and curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live,
       loving the LORD your God, obeying Him, and holding fast to Him. For the Lord is your
       life.
                                                                Deuteronomy 30:17a, 18a, 19, 20a


       Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness.
       Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him
       stumble. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the
       darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him. I
       write to you, dear children, because your sins have been forgiven on account of His
       name. 1 John 2:9-12


       Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
        If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he
        deceives himself and his religion is worthless. James1:22, 26


Do not willfully sin beloved child. My precious gift of perfected love was not given lightly -
Jesus paid not only your bail but also served your sentence. I tell you again, to purposefully and
willfully sin, knowing I Am merciful mocks the blood that was shed for sin and God is not
mocked. The reason many mock Jesus' blood and are totally oblivious to this deadly delusion is
because they refuse to be corrected by My Spirit of Truth. I ask you to allow yourself to be
corrected, beloved. "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near." I desire for you to yield a
great harvest of peaceable fruit which is My righteousness worked out in you. Will you allow
Me to show you the more excellent way?
   (Please see Isaiah 61:1; Psalm 107: 1-16; Matthew 4:17; 1 Corinthians 12:31; Hebrews 12:11)
Love,
Abba

Being Broken No More http://www.rivermistlighthouse.org/being_broken_no_more




2007 - The Year of Cadence
Part Five: The Least Shall Be Greatest


Will you allow yourself to become great in My kingdom by becoming the least? If you will
serve mankind as Jesus served, you will be given great authority in this age and the ages to come.
Do you choose to join in cadence with My will? My army readily pledges their allegiance to
Jesus. This is not about your race, gender, age, nationality, social/spiritual/military status,
education, or religious denomination. I Am not impressed with your résumé. Those who hear
Me pledge their allegiance to the Lamb of God who alone is worthy to open the scrolls. Jesus
was obedient to the Cross and it is My desire for you to walk in obedience for eternal life! The
gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it. The army
which awakens, hearkens to My voice, and marches in cadence with My will - are Mine. He
who endures to the end will be saved.
                                (Matthew 7:14; 24:13; Luke 9:48; 2 John 1:6; Ephesians 1:20-23;
                                        Galatians 3:28; Philippians 2:2, 3, 8-13; Revelation 5:9-14)


In My Word it is recorded that the disciples of Jesus were arguing as to whom among them
would be most famous. My Son perceived their hearts and gave them an illustration using a
child. He sat the child next to Him and said, "Whoever welcomes this child in My name
welcomes Me, and whoever welcomes Me welcomes the One who sent Me; for the least
among all of you is the greatest."
                                                                                (See Luke 9:46-48)
You will be known by your fruit.


What is in your heart? How well does the Lord know you? Do you call Jesus, "Lord"? Beloved,
examine yourself carefully for so did the five foolish virgins:
       "Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he
       replied, Truly I tell you, I do not know you." Matthew 25:11, 12
       Jesus said, "Many will say to Me, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name,
       and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?" Then I will tell
       them plainly, "I never knew you. Away from Me, you evildoers!" (Matthew 7:22)


Do you see how important it is for Jesus to know you?


My Son did not tell this to His disciples for shock value. Indeed many will say this and they will
be known in My kingdom as "evil-doers" for they sought their own fame and not My perfected
will. They took the bait of Satan to build their own kingdom and sought fame and fortune for
themselves using the power of My Son's name. They will not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
The five foolish virgins were shut out of the wedding banquet. They thought calling Him "Lord"
was enough. They believed being a virgin was enough. These five even had lamps as they
waited. However, they presumed they did not have to take the time and invest their resources to
buy oil to keep their way lit until My Son's return. You are the light of the world but you cannot
come into My kingdom if you walk in darkness. It is not My desire for any to perish. It is My
deepest desire to say the words to you, "Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been
faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your
master's happiness!" So follow the instructions I left to guide you into My eternal kingdom.
Walk in the light as He is in the light. Be as the wise virgins and awaken from your slumber,
trim your wick, fill your lamps with My oil, and come meet the Bridegroom.
                                       (See Matthew 5:14; 6:23; 7;13-20; 25:1-13; 23; 1 John 1:7)


Recall the parable of the two men who both heard the words of the Lord and one was likened to
building on rock and the other on sand. Though they each heard the words, only one of the men
actually put My words into action. He was wise. The other man heard the words but did not do
them. He was foolish. They both had harsh storms of life hit them. Both had to endure.
However, only one stood after the storms had passed because he had listened and obeyed the
word of the Lord. That man was likened to one who built his house on the rock. I Am the Rock.
You know this, but you also need to know that you must put into action what I am telling you. I
want you to stand! If you do not walk in obedience to My word, you will be as the foolish man
whose house is lost. Would you not want to avoid losing everything? This is My desire for you
as well, dear one. So walk in My love, walk in obedience. Rejoice for great is your reward.
  (See Deuteronomy 32:4; Matthew 7:24-27; 25:1-13, 23; Luke 6:35; Philemon 1:21; 2 John 1:6)


In all these illustrations, and many others, Jesus sincerely warned the disciples of the importance
of walking obedient to the word of God and by His Spirit He is now sincerely warning you. You
cannot live with one foot in the world (toying with sin) and one foot in the kingdom (seeking My
heavenly rewards). Those giving Jesus lip-service will not come into the kingdom of God. Do
you not understand that I AM is capable of cutting directly through to the truth of your
motivations? I know your heart better than you do. There is a reason it is written in the Word:


       "The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? I the
       LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct,
       according to what his deeds deserve." Jeremiah 17:9, 10
Please dear Church, I am pleading with you to repent from hidden sin and come back to Me with
the total abandonment of a child in mid leap. I WILL catch you! Does My Word tell you to
come to Me as a child? Trust Me, I will catch you!
                                                 (See Matthew 18:1-5; deeply ponder Luke 12:1-5)


There is only obedience or disobedience. Good intentions are not obedience.
                              (See Hebrews 2:1-3; 5:8-10; 1 John 3:21-24; 5:3-5; Revelations 3:3)


Turn away from that thing. It is the thing that you seek to keep hidden and do not anyone to find
out. It is that thing that you know you spend too much time with that has become more
important to you than anything - including Me. You know what it is, because as you read this,
you know what you need to turn away from. Lay it down and turn to Me. The hour is late. I
have already told you this many times through many voices. I love you deeply and I have much
for you to do in this year, but the first step is to destroy the thing that you spend more time with
than you do Me. As it is written, I Am a jealous God and you shall have no other gods before
Me. My desire is for you and sharing you with worldly things is intolerable for Me. In a very
real sense, you are prostituting yourself and wanting Me to bless you in it. I cannot and I will not
do that. Please test your works. Are they good works or My best?
                                      (Please read Exodus 20:3 and ponder 1 Corinthians 3:11-17)


Beloved, throughout this word there has been a great deal of correction. I commend you for
pushing through it. If you do not hear this by the Spirit, you will hear condemnation. Remember
that there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Any correction you have
received comes from the heart of the Father who loves you more than you could ever love
yourself. I will wipe every tear from your eyes. You are cherished.


Love,
Abba


May God's love be yours in abundance both now and forever,

The Choice Is Yours


The Choice Is Yours

You cry to Me child to keep and hold you. I have made every provision. I have given
you every door to walk through. I have and I will always provide a way into My
presence and out of danger and doubt. You must believe My Word as unbelievers will
not inherit My kingdom. You must believe Me and what I tell you.

Your fear is not unfounded. It is grounded in My Word. Your fear is not demonic or an
attack of your flesh. Your fear is the beginning of wisdom. Walk holy before Me. Walk
holy before your God. Seek Me and you will find Me. But seek the world, its pleasures,
its provision, its guidance - then you will sink in the mire of it all.

You must seek Me in all things and I will, I will, I promise I will direct your path. But
follow the ways of the world and you will find yourself lost to Me. The choice is yours.

To Be A Disciple of Christ
                                                                                       November 25, 2006
Beloved,

Please bear with me as I set the stage for this important word to the church from the Lord. If you prefer
to just read this exhortation, feel free to scroll down.

Last month I was invited to Uganda to speak, but before stepping out in faith to get my airline ticket I
asked the Lord a question. "Lord, if this is indeed You who are sending me, what would You have me
say to the people there?" He answered, "I will tell you when you are on your way."

As we know, God's ways are not our ways! (See Isaiah 55)

On the flight between London and Uganda I awoke from my slumber and because the subject at one of
the conferences was ?discipleship' I asked, "What does this mean exactly, Lord, to be a disciple of
Christ?" I had my thoughts on it, but I wanted to hear what He had to say. While I was still lying down,
He began to speak to me. I asked Him if I needed to sit up and write down what He was saying or if I
would remember it all. I immediately recognized this foolish question was rooted in the laziness of my
flesh. Of course I had to get up and write it down! We know what the Lord spoke to the prophet in the
Word:

        Habakkuk 2:2 Then the LORD answered me and said: Write the vision; make it plain on tablets,
        so that a runner may read it.
I repented of my impudence, sat up, retrieved my notebook, and turned on the TV screen in front of me
to check the status of my flight. It was 12:52am and the map revealed the plane was just then flying into
Africa! So it was at the precise moment of my entry to this great continent that the Lord spoke this to me.
As I shared it at the conferences, churches and schools, it became a catalyst for more prophetic words to
come forth specifically for our Ugandan brethren. All glory and honor to our King!

This exhortation about what it means to be a disciple of Christ edifies the entire church body and not just
one country or even continent. This is for the Disciples of Christ. This is for you. This is for me.

May the reader run with it in Jesus' name. Amen

Forever in His merciful arms,
Judy

"To be My disciple means to walk as I walked - to be as I Am. First and foremost - I Am Love! I love you
and I desire you to walk in the type of love that I displayed and modeled for you. (See John 8:12; 1 John
4:7-21, 5:1-5)

"The Only way I could walk in that love as the Son of Man was to spend time with My Father. I loved Him
  st
1 . I love My Father and He loves Me. We are separate [individuals] but we are One. As the Son of
Man I faced many opportunities to rightfully lash out at people, but the love that I had - that love that
came from My Father - overrode it [the temptation to sin in anger]. The times you read in Scripture that
[gives the impression that] I was angry - when I spoke the ?woes' to the Scribes and Pharisees and when
I cleansed the temple - were from the love of the Father. It was not anger as much as it was sorrow. I
know there is much debate on this and I do not bring you a new doctrine - I bring you My heart cry. (See
Isaiah 53:3-5; Mark 3:5; John 3:35-36; Matthew 22:37-40; Mark 12:28-34; John 2:14-17; Psalm 69)

"Love one another as I have loved you." (See John 5:19-27)

"Many cry out to see Me - to see My face and I tell you the truth - when you look at one another you are
looking at Me. (1 Corinthians 3:16)

"Do not look to those who are obviously [following] Me to see Me, though you may have to start there to
grasp this concept, but look to the least of the brethren. What you do to them, you do to Me. What you
do with each other, you do with Me. What you do for them, you do for Me. (See Matthew 25:40)

"Understand that I desire for you to care for one another. One person cannot take care of the whole
world. You can in no way fathom how many are alone with no help." (Suddenly I saw the entire world
and as it turned I could see millions, maybe billions of hurting people in that flash of a second of time.)

"But if you will touch people around you in My name and with My love, then if those you touch with My
love will turn and in kind and touch those around them with My love, and those then also touch others
who are around them with My love - THEN MY LOVE WILL BE LIKE A FIRE SPREADING THROUGH A
DRY FOREST. (See Matthew 3:11-12 and Luke 4:18-19; 12:49)
"Judy, do you see those lights down there?" I looked out my window and saw the lights He spoke of far
below us. "We are over very difficult [barren] land, yet people live here. It is the Sahara Desert. Even
out here - the lights are connected." I looked and the lights below looked like one long thin caravan with
darkness surrounding it as far as the eye could see.

"I Am the light of the world and in Me there is no darkness. As My disciples reflect the light of My love,
they ignite others to reflect the light of My love. (See Matthew 5:14 -16; 6:22; John 8:12; 9:5; 1
Corinthians 4:5; 2 Corinthians 4:6; Ephesians 5:5-16)

"Do you see?

"I Am a Consuming Fire! But I do not bring a destructive fire. I bring a fire that burns off the ropes and
sets men, women and children free. My fire is My passion for My church. I burn with love for My church.
Touch each other with this pure and holy fire. Touch each other with this pure and holy love. IGNITE
those around you with holy fire. (See Hebrews 12:29; Daniel 3:21-28; Acts 1:3-8; 1 John 4:18)

"Be careful not to allow the enemy of your soul, Satan, to manipulate you into perverting My love. My
love sets people free. My perfect love destroys fear. My love covers you. My love will never lead you
into immorality. Be aware! Satan will use your own desires to sin against Me. You must be wise! You
must be diligent! You must stand guard! (See John 8:32; Galatians 5:13-26; Colossians 3:5-10; 2
Timothy 1:6-7; 1 Peter 5:8; Hebrews 12:1; Matthew 10:16)

"To be My disciple means to be like Me. I Am like My Father. We are holy! Be holy as I Am holy and
IGNITE those around you to be holy. I would not say this if it were not possible. This can only be done
as you are led by My Spirit. So follow your Guide. Heed your Teacher. You were created in Our image.
(See Matthew 5:48; John 14-15; Ephesians 1:4; 5:27; Jude 20-25; Genesis 1:26)

"Come, Follow Me." (See Matthew 4:19; 19:21)



Thankful Hearts

Thankful Hearts

                                                                                        November 26, 2006

What are you thankful for, child? Do you stir yourself up to know and understand how good I Am is to
you? Do you realize and ponder My Son's death on the Cross to redeem you from yourself?

Many do not take the time to really ponder what it is that the King of the universe has done for them. The
price that was paid was costly and it was eternal. The price was My Son's own blood poured out for you.
Do not take this as a light thing! Do not take this for granted. The price for rejecting Him is extreme. The
hell you think of is a fraction of what it really is and any thoughts that I will be merciful after you have
rejected His payment for you is a horrific assumption on your part. Hell is a real place, beloved. Your
worst nightmare, your worse idea, your worst imagination is pale by comparison to what it really is. This is
not something to gloss over, dear one! This is an eternal decision you must make now because crying
out to Me from hell will not move My heart toward you. I will only tell you that you had the choice on earth
and in this life you now live. I will only remind you of all the opportunities that I gave you to receive My
Son. The only way [path] to Me is for you to accept Jesus as your Lord. If you try to go through any other
door or any other ?christ' other than Jesus of Nazareth, you will find yourself apart from Me for all
eternity. This is not My desire for you. I would that none perish. I labor to see all come to Me. I send
angels into your midst to help you. I send My chosen sons and daughters to preach My Gospel, comfort
and exhort you to come to Me.

My love for you is perfect

My love for you is complete

My love for you is full

My love for you will never fail you

My love casts out fear

My love for you is perfect

Know also that your best idea of heaven is pale in comparison to what it really is. Where I Am is where I
want you to be. Know that the resources I have waiting for you to build My kingdom are without end.
There is nothing missing, nothing broken in My provision. You have only to accept it. If you think I do not
hear you, realize that My provision has already been given, so you must ask yourself if you have
appropriated it.

Do you know what would make Me thankful? If you would accept My Word as truth and that you would
believe all my promises really are, "Yes!" and "Amen!" I would be thankful to you, child, if you would
accept all My promises and walk confidently in them. I would be thankful for you to have thankful heart.
A thankful heart will move Mine.




I Do Not Use Hype!
I Do Not Use Hype

                                                                                      November 17, 2006

Beloved, I do not use hype to advance My Kingdom. It is not by your might and power, it is by My Spirit
that My kingdom is advanced. All the shouting ends up sounding like a clanging gong in My ears. You
may be able to manipulate people to give to your cause, but My hand will not move if you operate under
this demonic spirit.

If you do not have love for My people, there is no choice but to use hype. You can shout until you turn
blue, but you will not move Me.

My heart is for the lost and downtrodden. If your heart seeks position and accolades of man, then you
are building your own kingdom and not Mine. I tell you now to repent of this wickedness. (See Matthew
7:21-23)

My kingdom is built on the lives I and I alone restore. My kingdom is built on love and mercy and justice
and righteousness. Self-exaltation is the sin Lucifer committed in My presence. Do you want his
reward? Do you want [to join] his sentence?

My Son came down and by example showed you how My heart was moved. I revealed My plan clearly.
You may wonder why a perfect God would choose the downcast, the lonely, the prostitute, the orphan,
the widow, those found on the highways and byways. I will tell you clearly. It is because they are
completely aware that they are unworthy of Me and in that knowledge they know Who is worthy of the
glory and honor and praise when they are lifted up. They are not tempted to puff up as one would who is
self-reliant and seemingly has the world in his pocket. They know they need help. I can fill that hunger.

I do not need hype. I need obedient children; I need loyal friends to carry out My will and not beat My
sheep.




The Fruit of My Love
The Fruit of My Love
November 5, 2006

Fruit comes from a source - it comes from what image it is made in. In whose image are you made,
child? Are you made in the image of your heavenly Father or do you look more like the father of worldly
materials?


What will last? What will endure? What will remain? Is it the gold of this world? Do you realize the value
of gold is reduced to street rubble in heaven? It is so valueless that you will only see it as a road to walk
on.


What is the fruit of your heavenly bank account? What are the dividends? What interest rate do you earn
from your heavenly account? Don't think that you can just throw money at Me, child! I cannot be bought!
Do not try to buy Me or you may lose everything you have. I know the motivation of your heart at all times
and in every situation. You cannot hide your thoughts from Me. Do not give out of guilt as that does not
honor Me. Do not give out of obligation as that is a divided heart. I do not seek those with divided hearts
to fund My kingdom. I look for those with pure hearts and pure hands. I look for those with who will give
without looking for honor or credit or attention from man. I look for those who will give not for what they
can get out of Me, but for what they can do to bless My children.


My children are My image on this earth. My children are the extension of My love. My children know My
voice - they learn My voice. The god of this world has darkened many eyes and dulled many ears, but if
you long to see Me and you long to hear the voice of your heavenly Father ask Me for the eye salve that
will heal your eyes and I will freely give it. Ask me to flush the mud from your ears and I will cleanse them
with My Living Water. I will teach you My voice, My child. Hearken to Me! I promise I will hearken to
your cry. I will send angels speedily and dispatch them for your aid. My promises are "Yes!" and "Amen!"


Do you understand what I Am saying to you?


Do you understand that I desire to bless you with a fruitful life? But child, you must ask yourself if the fruit
you are bearing is from My Spirit or from this world.


I do not rate or grade your sin. No, I do not give one sin more punishment than another. To Me gossip
will separate you from Me as quick as murder.
So I ask you, what fruit do those around you enjoy from the garden of your life?

In the love of the Father,
Judy




I Am Opening the Doors

Jewels from Judy: I Am Opening The Doors

Oct 8, 2006

                             th
You are coming into the 7 year and I Am opening doors that no man can shut.

When I open a door you must walk through it because once the time for it to be opened to you has
passed, it will be closed by Me and will not be opened again.

This is the season to obey immediately

This is the season to rebuild the walls that stand in ruins

This is the season to be released into your destiny

This is the season of grace

My grace is indeed sufficient enough. Be comforted in My love for you. I will never drop you. I will never
call you out on a limb and not support it. I know it looks scary, but know I can easily hold you up in all I
call you to do and all I call you to be. Believe.




I Am the Wind Beneath You

Jewels from Judy: I Am the Wind Beneath You

                                                                                              October 8, 2006

                                                                                                              8:21

It is My desire to see you soar. I Am the wind beneath you. I Am what lifts you into the places you
cannot go on your own. Take flight My dove! Take flight!

It is the Spirit of Truth whom the world cannot receive that will lift you to new heights in Me. Fly in the
power and authority of My Truth!

Ask of Me, Beloved. Ask of Me what you need, but do not doubt. Do not be tossed in your minds to and
fro as I cannot bless doubt and unbelief. Many believe their own doubting hearts more than believe Me
and My words. Do you love Me? Keep My commandments. Those who are Mine hear the Word of God
and do it.

I came to bring a sword. Allow it to cut the death of unbelief from your heart. Use My sword to break
through the chains that keep My church captive. Cut the iron bars that imprison the lost.




Heed this warning: My sword is not to be used to mutilate the
very ones bought with My very own blood! Skillful use of My
sword is vital to bring healing and not wounding. As My Word
says, "Wounds from a friend can be trusted." This is because
a wound from a friend relieves the pressure like a boil that has
been lanced. But one who takes My words and uses them to
harm and condemn will stand before Me and give an account
for every careless word! Repent now and ask Me to teach you
to skillfully wield My sword. There are times to war and you
are to use My sword to destroy only when fighting the enemy.
You fight not against flesh and blood but against powers of
darkness. My Word brings healing to mankind and destruction
to the spiritual rulers. Be sure to separate the two.

Learn this skill; then I can take you to new heights in Me. As
you wait in expectation, you can mount up with wings of eagles
and soar to new heights.

Do not forget that it is I, the Lord God Almighty, who is the wind
beneath your wings. It is I who sustains your flight. I Am the
wind beneath your wings. Do not forget this.




Will You Embrace Your Destiny?
Will You Embrace Your Destiny?
                                                                        September 27, 2006



You Have A Destiny!


I have called you to the nations* to a destiny and I am asking you now, Will you
embrace your destiny?


This is a time of new beginnings and you are called for such a time as this. Know that
you were chosen to be in this day and in this time. There is a vast cloud of witnesses
who beckon you to move forward in the power of My Resurrected Son.


Do not come to Me with your list of all your inadequacies and tell Me why you are
unable to line up your will with Mine. I already know you are unable and that is
precisely why I called you! You must know that what is impossible with man is possible
with Me. I Am that I Am! I Am sufficient for all you need. Do not say any longer that
you are unable. That, dear child, has already been established!


Will you will lay everything down and pick up your mantle, continually wear it, and go
where I send you? I will give you everything you need when you need it if you will obey
My promptings. As you obey, the provision you need will already be waiting for you on
My path, so do not look at what you do not have as you begin to step out in your
destiny. Have faith and know that I will provide for you. Shed the garment of doubt and
clothe yourself in My mantle.


Will you honor Me by quickly coming into agreement with Me when I ask you to do
something? Know that I start with small things. As you comply with My Spirit in the
small things, I can move you into the bigger purpose that I have. Do not despise small
beginnings, dear one. I start there with everyone. Even Jesus had small beginnings.


I have called you to a destiny; will you embrace your destiny?


You ARE More Than A Conqueror!


Will you honor Me by looking at what I can do instead of what you can do?


Beware of the spirit of fear and timidity. Will you embrace the call on your life or not? If
you embrace fear you cannot also embrace your destiny of faith in Me. When you
embrace fear you are proclaiming that I am not faithful! You may not realize this is what
you are doing, but it is. Faith cannot exist where fear resides. You must exterminate
fear. My love fights fear! My love conquers fear! I set before you a choice. Choose
faith or fear. I will give you the answer, choose faith!


Fear expects Me to be unfaithful and to break My promises to you. Fear expects the
worst before it has happened. Faith will cause you to see the miraculous through the
eyes of your heart first and then you will see the miraculous right before your very eyes.
You have to see it first by My spirit, then you will see it in the natural. You can attract
what you fear to yourself, or you can attract to yourself what you hope for. The choice
is yours. I give an established warning: Guard your heart with all diligence for out of it
the issues of life flow.


Know that I desire for you to expect the best before it happens. I desire that when you
see a storm approaching, you will expect Me to move on your behalf. Doubt your
doubts! I have called you to be MORE than a conqueror. What this means is that you
can know you have won the battle before ever entering it. The Greater One lives in
you. You ARE more than a conqueror because I have already won!


Seeds Of Destiny Produce Fruit!


I have planted in you seeds of destiny. Will you allow the Living Word to water those
seeds? Will you allow the Light of My Salvation to shine through you until those seeds
grow to bear fruit?


My dear one, do you not yet know that I desire for you to have an entire orchard of trees
that overflow with fruit? There is sweet succulent fruit to be grown, harvested and
enjoyed. All of the harvest will be brought to My banqueting table. My banner over you
is love.

In our Father's ever-increasing agape,
Judy

*Nations - ethnos, peoples, lands. We all have a sphere of people where the Lord has given us His
power and His authority. Please pray and ask the Lord to confirm to whom you are called and where you
are to go in Jesus' name. Wisdom is proved right by her children. God bless and keep you. jb
Drink the New Wine
Drink the New Wine
September 23, 2006

You cannot go back the way you came. The road is closed. Access is denied. You
must take the high road home. You are to take the new road. Drink the New Wine.
The old wine had its day and its purpose. But this day has a new song, a new sound, a
new direction, a new path.

The path I have you on is narrow. Enter the gate. Remove the vines and the brush and
the obstacles. The enemy has had a season of growth and all of that must be cut
away. It's time for pruning so the gate of My presence can be seen.

Come in! Come in! Come in!

Come in and see the glory I have in store for you. Don't look back and revisit the
wounds of the past for they will no longer be there --unless you choose to re-open
them.
Let Me pour the new wine. Drink deeply! Drink deeply, Child!

                                                                9/17/06

The Setup:

We were singing the song during worship, Freedom Reigns:

       Where the spirit of the Lord is - there is freedom
       Where the spirit of the Lord is - there is freedom
       If you're tired and you are thirsty - there is freedom


       Freedom reigns in this place
       Showers of mercy and grace
       Falling on ev'ry face
       There is freedom

       Jesus reigns in this place
       Showers of mercy and grace
       Falling on ev'ry face
       There is freedom

All week, and specifically this morning, I have been praying for Breakthrough to come through
our church to our community, city, state, region and country. Breakthrough is what is needed
for the days to come. (There is another word that explains breakthrough further. I received it
yesterday entitled; I Am the Pearl of Great Price. Freedom Raining and Breakthrough coming
are words given in unity.)

As we were worshiping I saw golden raindrops coming down onto everyone in the sanctuary. I
felt it was a rain of anointing to bring deliverance. The Lord required me to discreetly report
this to our pastor, but I am not so sure how clearly I delivered the message. It was such a holy
moment and there was such a strong sense of urgency from the Lord. The presence of God was
so intense that I was shaking all over.

The following word is what the Lord spoke to me as worship concluded. What is really
fascinating is that the message preached was about releasing the baggage we carry and
specifically breaking addictions. I had most of this written by the time he spoke, so it was a
sweet confirmation of the presence of God in the house.

The Word from the Lord:

The golden rain that you see is the rain of My freedom to break addictions. Freedom rains when
I AM comes into the room. Freedom reigns when I AM comes into the room!

This is not to say that I am not always with you, as I Am, however, this rain doesn't fall in the
same place continually. When you feel your time with Me has been dry, it is because the
ground of your soul is parched. I come with My rain to give you a chance to get replenished.
Do not allow the rain to run-off and be wasted. When I rain on you that is your moment of
deliverance, if you will but allow My Spirit to reign!

I want you to be so fully washed by My Living Water that you will have an abundance to share
with others. So let the rain of My presence come and refresh you. I want to rain My glory down
on you, but you must allow Me to reign in your life.
If you think your plan to get yourself out of the bear-trap will work, then I suppose you will
have to wrestle with it further. The addiction that has been sprung on you has been set by the
enemy. He has seized your life and is relentless. That trap you are in is daunting and deadly to
you. It has a hold on you and you are powerless against it. That struggle seems so pointless
when I AM stands next to you ready to open it for you.

       Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of
       witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily
       entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

Until you throw off your pride and allow Me - the God of the universe to open the trap, you will
remain ensnared in it. Can't you see that My ability to spring you from the trappings of
addictions are so much higher, so much greater, so much more efficient and thorough than any
and all efforts you can make?

You even deny your own condition. You lay there with the jaws clamped tightly around you
and yet you tell Me and others around you that there is no trap - it doesn't exist. Yet everyone
can see that it has a hold of you. Those trying to help bring you freedom are shamed to scorn.
The truth is, child, you are in a trap of your own making and there is no way out in your own
strength. BUT DO NOT DESPAIR!

Allow Me to open the trap, heal your wounds and reconstruct the missing parts. Your light will
break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear. I will rise with healing in My
wings. Then you will walk in My freedom. You will walk in My grace. You will walk in My
glory.

Arise, shine for the glory of the Lord rises upon you and My glory will appear over you!

       Heb 4:16 Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we
       may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Forever in God's grace,
Judy Bauman



I Am the Pearl of Great Price
I Am the Pearl of Great Price
                                                                                           9/15/06

You live in a day and in a time of great release and breakthrough. Declare and decree over your
city for Breakthrough to come

Open your doors all you gates and let the King of glory come in! Pray for the Lord of hosts to
send His angels that gather to remove the stumbling blocks from your heart. Pray for the tares to
be pulled out of your soul. I want all of you, not parts of you. Do not section off your life to Me
as that is intolerable! I do not want parts of you anymore than you want parts of Me.

The fire in My eyes is My passion for you and I will not share you with the gods of this world or
the desires of your flesh. Allow the Gatherers to remove the temptations, the stumbling blocks
of lawlessness from your hearts and cast those tares into the fire. I am looking for those with
clean hands and a pure heart. Do not think you can touch others with unholy thoughts and
unholy hands and I will just look the other way. The tares must be gathered from your heart and
burned. You are positioned at the gate. Will you let the King of glory in to rule and reign? Will
you be part of the greatest move of My Spirit yet to be seen?

I will not share My glory with flesh. There is no more time to play games - the hour is late!

Will you allow Me to have my way? Yes? Then allow Breakthrough to come and for the
gathering angles to remove the tares. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the
kingdom of their Father.

I Am the Pearl of great price. Will you give all you have to follow Me?

See Matthew 13:41-44
Forever in God's grace,
Judy Bauman

I Am Calling You Higher
Jewels from Judy: I Am Calling You Higher!
9/10/06


Child, the sorrow of the pruning you are enduring is but for a short time; joy comes in the
morning. Know that though it is painful, it is necessary. You are coming into a new season in Me.
Think of a fruit tree that has one branch that is growing much faster than any of the others. The
tree becomes out of balance. A branch that has had exponential growth in comparison to the rest
of the tree must be pruned back so the rest of the branches can catch up.


This is not pruning of dead branches, though I do that; this pruning is of a living and healthy
branch which bore fruit you enjoyed. That is why the pain is so intense, but it is not unto death.
That which has been cut away will be for My glory. There is a shock that happens to a tree when it
is pruned and this is what you are experiencing. But remember, the tree gets over the shock and
grows to bear much more fruit. Your branches are to bring healing to many nations. What I gave
you during the prior season will never be taken from you. I have planted you by the Living Water
and I want you to drink deeply during this time of recovery. It is My desire for your roots to grow
deep and strong in Me. By My hand a lance has skillfully been cast to cut the cords that once
bound you - the ropes are no longer there! You've been set free! Rejoice in that! Your roots are
healthy and free to grow! Learn of Me as My ways will never lead you astray. I say again, take time
to drink deep from the well of My presence. I will never turn you away and I will never set a limit
on how deep you can go in Me. You are free to go as deep as you desire.


The enemy sought to dishearten you and bring you to your knees. But that is right where I wanted
you! His desire is to see you embrace the wounds of being cast aside - he's trying to regain entry,
but I have strengthened your heart in this past season. Your heart is compelled to embrace My
cross. That is because I have injected it with My DNA and you are forever changed. Because you
have submitted to Me, I have given you the wisdom to resist his deceptions.


Know that you are no longer an orphan. You are mine. You belong to Me! Everyone could
abandon, reject and cast you aside, but My favor and My love will always bring you back to My
side where there is fullness and life. At My side is where you can rejoice with joy unspeakable
and full of glory! You know that you belong to Me and are a child of the King. You are heir to all I
have, so walk humbly but confidently in that truth.


Release the pain of the pruning to Me and I will rise up with healing in My wings. I will cover you in
My pinions. Come up to the cleft of the Rock and rest in My presence. Mount up with wings as
eagles. Yes, use the wings I have given you to soar with Me. I am calling you higher!
In His ever-increasing agape,
Judy



Will You Allow the Angels to Dance Upon You?
Will You Allow the Angels to Dance Upon You?
9/9/06


My angels have been sent to dance upon you and press out the new wine. Will you lie down on the
threshing floor? Will you trust Me and submit? They will collect the wine that comes when you are
pressed, put it in a gold goblet, and pour it out upon you as Golden Living Water. This is a heavenly
water that is also oil. In heaven, oil and water mix very well. It is a divine substance that cleanses,
renews, and anoints. I will give this Golden Living Water to all who are willing to be emptied and pressed.


Call My bride, Judy, call out to My church and tell her that in this dance, I am providing the desired beauty
treatments for her wedding. I am providing all the desired elements to bring out her beauty. My bride
shall be pure and holy and blameless in My sight. She shall be readied! Prepare the way of the Lord!
Prepare the way for your Groom! Allow Me to preen and prepare you, My beloved.


The Scripture He gave me to confirm the oil and water mixing in heaven:


         1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy
         Ghost: and these three are one.
         8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and
         these three agree in one. KJV




Being Broken No More




Being Broken No More
Judy Bauman

8/12/06

10:45 am
As the Body of Christ submits itself to the leading of My Spirit, it will find itself broken in My presence.
In My presence your agenda will die, your desires that don't line up with Me or My ways will die, your
lack of focus on what is important will die.



If you will submit to My correction and My crafting in your life, you will find yourself humbled to the
ground. You will fall to your face and cry for Me to purge you of your own flesh.



As you lay down your life for Me, you will be raised in Me. You fell because of sin, but you rise because
of My love and passion for you. The fire of My love will burn all that hinders.



Yes, you will prophesy My love and My will. You will lay down all that hinders and be raised in My
strength and My power. You will give light in dark places - even when the lights go out. When the lights
go out, you will find a candle to light your way. I will never leave you in darkness. I will not leave you as
you are in your ways. I will come and rescue you and you will be broken no more.



You will rise up in My power

You will rise up in My grace

You will rise up in My authority

You will rise up in My joy

You will be carriers of My fire

You will be one of those whose ways bring light into dark places



This can all happen because you allow Me to humble you and break your heart. This can happen
because you lay your agenda down. Rise up in My love and be broken no more.

Walk In Justice
Walk in Justice
7/28/06

As I pour out My words and impartation of My heart to those who hear My voice, I issue a
warning. Do not allow your hearts to be elevated into pride because of the abundance of My
revelation being poured out upon you. Many of My own that were much more worthy than you
longed to hear Me as you do and didn't. You hear Me the way you do because of the urgency of
the day you live in and what is to come. I need My remnant built up or surely their hearts will
fail them. I do not say this for you to be influenced by a spirit of fear. I do not want you to
shrink back or walk timidly. I have given everyone who is called by My name the ability to see
through the darkness. Some walk in the fullness of My light and some still yet need to
understand. I am pouring out understanding. I am pouring out words of wisdom. This is not to
be confused with a word of wisdom, no, this is more than that. I want you to walk continually in
My wisdom and understanding. I want you to continually seek My counsel before you ask for
My might. I want you to KNOW ME!

Knowledge is worthless without knowing Me first. This requires intimacy. I want you to walk
in the light of the fear of the Lord which will always bring you back to wisdom. I have a circular
way. I Am Everlasting-to-everlasting.

As you walk in My Spirit, your flesh will want to puff up. This is why I allowed Paul to have 'a
thorn in his side' so that he would humble himself before Me. I gave him great revelations. I am
giving you great revelations, but you must walk in and cloak yourself in humility.

Do not think more highly of yourself than you ought! Give Me all the glory. My glory will
destroy you. This is why I will not share it with flesh. A good and faithful Father will not give
to His children that which would bring them destruction. The ways of man will bring destruction
to your life. Seek Me! Seek Me! Seek Me!

My ways bring life and life everlasting. My ways bring hope. My ways bring righteousness.
My ways bring justice! Yes, I told Paul, "My grace is sufficient," however, My grace is not
higher than My justice. Righteousness and justice are the foundations of My very throne!
Everything is built upon My foundation. Righteousness is what you are clothed in. Justice is
your walk. Walk in My justice and then My grace will rest on you and My glory will be seen
around you. This is why so many do not walk in My power. My ways are not your ways, child.
Walk in My justice and you will walk in My power.




Rise Up My love
Rise Up My Love!

Rise up My love. Rise up and take your place in My plan. I have a vision for you, and I want
you to see it from My heavenly realm. You must arise from your place of slumber and rest. It is
not time to retire, it is not time to slow down, it is not time to give way to the ways of man, it is
time to arise in My glory. It is time, My beloved ones who carry the fire of My love, to arise to
My realm of understanding. See what I AM shows you now. Catch My vision. Catch My sight
of the days to come. Rise up My love.



Walk in the Authority of a Queen
Walk in the Authority of a Queen
These words came at a pretty rapid pace this week (July 17-21, 2006) during training at IHOP-ATL
(International House of Prayer), and their succession was intriguing. Each one builds on the revelation of
the one before it. In the first word, Walk Through the Veil, Billy Humphrey was teaching about the Father
Heart of God when Walk Through the Veil was 'downloaded' to me. I mention this pastor by name
because I feel I need to give what I call 'the fire of Billy' some credit in creating the atmosphere for the
Holy Spirit to flow. Of course it is the fire of God - the intense love of God - in him that I give glory. To be
sure, it is a lot of fun to be in the room when the heat is on!!! What was pretty cool was that the Lord
asked me to close my eyes and listen to his words as if the Father Himself were speaking to me. It was
so awesome! The Father's love is so awesome!!! The words just washed over me. His teaching was
actually a 'post-op' from something I went through on this very subject a few weeks back. I was thrilled
that my appointment went well with the Great Physician! The word ?Master Surgeon' was given at that
time. If you are having trouble in this area I want to extend hope to you.

The other 3 words came at various times in the week. Again - remember it is from the love of God for you
that these words come. He adores you!
Blessings,
Judy


Walk Through the Veil
7/17/06 11:30am

Do you want the veil removed? You've cried out to have this 'thing' removed - this thing that
keeps you from coming to Me. Then you have to get real with Me, about how you really feel
about your earthy father. Until you let Me peel that pain away, you will never have intimacy with
Me. Do you really want to experience My heavenly realm? You have to get real about what has
come between you and your natural dad. Getting real will remove the veil. You must open
your spirit to Me. You must open your soul to Me. Your independence doesn't protect you.
Your independence is keeping the veil taut. Trust Me in this and see the freedom that comes
to your soul. Come out of the façade. Come let Me Father you.

Love is the Issue!
My love is the highest experience you can have in all creation. Be loved by Me. There is no
other thing you need more in life than My love. You ask, "What must we do?" I tell you what I
told My disciples, "Believe." Believe what? Believe My love for you. Believe My love is
complete. My love is full. My love will encompass you like nothing else. Do I need servants?
No, I need My bride to take her place by My side. I never placed you under My feet. As I took a
rib from Adam's side - I take My bride to be by My side. I was pierced in My side for My love for
you. I wash you with My water; I wash you with My sacrifice.
I have chosen to marry one who has been loved by another. Come and take My hand and I will
give you My purity. I will comfort you, My bride. No more will the horses of darkness haunt your
dreams. Their hooves will be silenced. I will stop them in their tracks. I will stop them from
bringing their shame upon you.

I Am is your Husband and I will stop at nothing to bring you to Myself. I love you and I will wash
you and cleanse you from your past. Give to Me all of your shame and the reproach of your
youth. I have betrothed you. I will take you as a virgin. I will marry you and you will be Mine
forever! Bare yourself to Me and I will take you into Myself.

I will tell you again and again until you really know in your heart that I love you. I love
you. I love you!


Authority of a Queen
I have given you the authority of a queen. The words that you speak must be words that are
thought out and deliberate. It is My desire that you declare and decree My will on earth
as in heaven. My church is My bride. My church is My queen. She doesn't understand the
authority that I have released to her through My sacrificial love for her. I gave her My power; I
gave her My authority. I promise My beloved that I AM is with her to the end of the age. You
are her! You, Beloved! You are My beautiful bride. Men, get a grip as to what the Lord your
God is saying and what this means. Don't get weird on Me. I desire to impart My love to you,
but I cannot do that if you fail to understand this mystery. (See Ephesians 5:32) I have called
you to go to the nations, but if you don't understand that I send you with the authority of being
My queen, you will not capture the hearts of the lost. It's My love that captivates. Let My love
first captivate you.

Run the Race
Don't settle for a false finish line; settle only for My direction and pace. When I lead you into a
place of pain for your flesh, know that it must be worked out of you for you to walk in the fullness
of My power and authority. Don't look to the approval man gives or it will distract you from My
path. My path is narrow and few find it. Too many are more concerned about what man
in saying not what I Am says.

Do you really want more of Me? Am I really your passion? Then throw off all that hinders you.
Run the race set before you and give me all the shackles that are keeping you from finishing in
My fullness and My grace. Look at Me. Look at My love for you. It will never fail you. My
love will sustain you for the race.



The Hour is Late

Know that the Lord is speaking in a tone of voice of the deepest
love you can imagine. If you hear anything other than God's love
for you, know that tone is not in line with what is coming from
the Throne Room. The earnest appeal from the Lord, I believe,
comes from the times we live in and the sincere urgency that He
wants to impart to His Beloved. Jesus' greatest desire is for us
to know Him as we are known. It is my prayer that this will spur
us each into action and into a deeper place in Christ. Be
encouraged. His love is more than enough; His grace is
sufficient. Judy

The Hour is Late

7/12/06

Won't you come in? Can't you hear My voice beckoning you into the Holy of holies? Don't you
understand that I already know why it is you don't want to come into where I Am sits?
Everything is exposed in here. You prefer to come to church and go through the niceties and
don't realize that you are only in the courtyards; you have yet to come into My presence. You
want to sing songs that sound good. You don't want to draw too much attention to yourself. You
don't want to turn anyone off. You want it to last just only so long because you have places to go
and people to meet, and yet you leave the one Who ransomed your heart from destruction
standing there empty-handed. You fool yourself to think I don't see everything from where I sit.
The difference is that when you come into My Throne Room of Grace, you see what it is in you
that doesn't belong. The real reason you don't come because you know you must look at what is
really going on inside of yourself.

Don't you see that My desire for you is to be rid of the chains that bind you? Don't you
know that I love you with a love that is deeper than anything you can imagine?

I desire to bring you to the King's banqueting table! You don't see that you have slop on your
plate. Can you see that taking sin into yourself is like eating rubbish? Why would you want to eat
garbage when I have a feast prepared for you? You are holding on to hidden sin and it keeps you
from My best - it keeps you from the Secret Place of the Most High. You refuse to come into the
Holy Place with Me because you will not release these insidious desires of yours. You want to lie
and cheat; greed runs amuck in those I call My own. Listen Child of Mine, you do not hide a
thing from I Am. You only hide it from yourself. Everything is going to be exposed in the Day.
Everything is to be revealed by the fire that burns in My eyes. That fire is My passion for you,
but it will consume everything that is not of Me. What will be left standing?

Come to Me and I will cleanse you. Don't wait! RUN to the Mercy Seat! Then you can
stand with Me and not apart from the One who covers your sins. Then you will be able to
worship in the power of My Spirit. Then you will be able to come to Me in truth. Then you
will be free!

Come! Come into the Holy Place! Come sit at My feet and learn from Me for I Am humble
of heart. You will find rest for your souls.

I stand at the crossroads looking down at My watch. I Am telling you plainly, the hour is late.
Do not think that I come to take you up and out of your mess. I do not speak of what men teach.
I speak of the hour in your life that has come and I Am telling you, the hour is late. Those
who hear Me have been sending warnings to implore you to seek Me early, yet you think
you have all the time in the world. You don't. I see the time. The hour is late. My love is
great. Come and soak in My Presence and see what I Am can do with your life!

It's His LOVE church. Everything... it's all about His love. His
discipline leads to holiness and without it we are in trouble.
There is a Scripture that I think will bless you (if you have
made it this far!) It is Hebrews 12:5-15. God's discipline
yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness. Yum. There's
something sweet to sink your teeth into!

Will you let Him burn out everything in your heart that doesn't
belong to Him; then will you ask Him to leave everything of Him
ablaze?

Seated with you in Christ,

Judy Bauman



My Love Is Hot!
There is something I feel responsible to make clear before you read this. The Lord's words
are spoken in a tone of voice of the deepest love you can imagine. If you hear anything
other than God's love for you, know that tone is not in line with what is coming from the
Throne Room. These earnest appeals from the Lord, I believe, come from the times we
live in and the sincere urgency that He wants to impart to His Beloved. Jesus' greatest
desire is for us to know Him as we are known. It is my prayer that these words spur us
each into action and into a deeper place in Christ. Be encouraged. His love is more than
enough; His grace is sufficient.

Love in Christ,

My Love Is Hot

7/9/06


Worship is not a spectator sport. My children, I desire you to come to Me with your whole heart.
The half-hearted praises of My people weary My ears. I am exhausted for the straining I must do
to hear you worship in spirit and in truth.

I am begging you to come to Me while I can be found. Must you always be moved to find Me in
calamity? Will you not see the benefits of seeking your God and King during times of plenty? O
how much more I could bless you if you were seeking me when you are in good times.

         Come - Come - Come!

Worship Me in spirit and in truth. Seek what this means to your King.

My love is an intimate, passionate love. It nauseates Me when I hear My own telling the hurting, "I
love you with the love of the Lord," when they could no more care about that person than the
man-in-the-moon. Don't have mixed seed - that is to say don't have mixed love. You cannot love
Me and love the world. You cannot love Me and love mammon.

My love is red hot. My love is not lukewarm. Lukewarm love makes Me want to vomit.

Come to Me hot or come to Me cold, but don't come lukewarm. Don't touch those I call 'MINE'
with lukewarm love. I desire to have you touch My heart and My hurting with hot love.

My love is hot.

My Love Is Hot

7/9/06

During corporate worship the Lord asked me to stop and look around.                              Then He
gave me this word:

Worship is not a spectator sport. My children, I desire you to come to Me with your whole heart. The
half-hearted praises of My people weary My ears. I am exhausted for the straining I must do to hear you
worship in spirit and in truth.

 I am begging you to come to Me while I can be found. Must you always be moved to find Me in
calamity? Will you not see the benefits of seeking your God and King during times of plenty? O how
much more I could bless you if you were seeking me when you are in good times.

Come - Come - Come!

Worship Me in spirit and in truth. Seek what this means to your King.

 My love is an intimate, passionate love. It nauseates Me when I hear My own telling the hurting, "I love
you with the love of the Lord," when they could no more care about that person than the man-in-the-
moon. Don't have mixed seed - that is to say don't have mixed love. You cannot love Me and love the
world. You cannot love Me and love mammon.

My love is red hot. My love is not lukewarm. Lukewarm love makes Me want to vomit.

Come to Me hot or come to Me cold, but don't come lukewarm. Don't touch those I call 'MINE'
with lukewarm love. I desire to have you touch My heart and My hurting with hot love.

My love is hot.




Personal note:

When the Holy Spirit asked me to look around in worship, I saw so many just not connecting to Him. It
was clear their minds were somewhere else and it really bummed me out. I don't normally look around
during worship because I think worship is really personal, so I try to respect people's privacy. I am there
to seek the face of God, not to watch what people are doing. What I saw (spiritually) was disheartening
and I felt His sorrow. Understand, this is not a specific church that the Father seeks to single-out.
What I was witnessing was 'a matter of the heart' of His Bride - the Church. It just happened to be
manifesting where I was at - and it certainly wasn't for the lack of skilled musicians. I would suggest that
you ask the Lord what He meant in John 4:23 and let Him speak to you.

The Exchange
6/28/06

O My beloved. Can't you see that I desire to make an exchange with you? I want to give you beauty for
ashes and joy for fear.

I want you to hand Me the broken events from your life - the rejection, shame, heartbreak, grief, fear, and
everything that fills your heart that is not from Me. Give Me the defiling things in your heart. Let the
exchange take place. As you release each one, fill that place in your heart with My approval, My
forgiveness, My joy, My peace, My love. But remember, it's all because of My intense love for you.

Turn Off the Noise

6/28/06

(This word was given about 30 minutes after, The Exchange. I was awoken by the Lord out of deep sleep
both times and wrote them down.)

So many of My children go through life with non-stop noise. The TV is on, the radio is on, the
CD's are playing. You think you are 'plugged in' with your cell phones, computers, I-Pods,
Blackberries and such. But in plugging into the barrage of racket going on around you - you
have un-plugged yourself from Me. Those things are not your life-line. I Am your life-line!

Do you wonder how some hear the voice of the Lord and some don't? I Am the 'still small
voice.' I will not override your will. Your desire is to hear what the world has to offer, but will
you take the time to sit in the quiet of the day and seek Me out? Do you want to hear the 'still
small voice' of the One who loves and adores you? Do you want to hear from the One who
wants to give you solutions to your most difficult life questions?

Turn off the noise.

The Cold and Distant Bride

7/12/06

The Lord has been speaking to me in the past few days in a way that is difficult to describe; it is so tender
and yet full of agony. There is such an ache and longing in His voice. We think if He is speaking sternly
that He is mad and that is not it. That is not it at all. It is His passionate desire for us. His love for His
Church is so intense and deep. Most of those who are 'called by His name' are satisfied with so little
(spiritually) and He died so that we could have so much more (spiritually).

His reminded me today how He asked Hosea to marry a woman whose affections were distant at best. She
went to others to be satisfied and it was God's way to show how painful it is for Him when we seek the
worldly things and mix them with Christ's burning passion for His cherished Church. This is what makes
us lukewarm, beloved.

He went to the Cross and demonstrated His deep and passionate love for us by being the very ransom for
our captivity. Then many who have accepted the gift of salvation - those whom He died for - go on about
their lives as if He had done nothing at all? How can this be??? Will the Beloved of Christ really just go
on her merry way after seeing the enormity of His sacrifice? Do they see the extent of the vast love He
has shed? Maybe we need to see Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion of the Christ once more so that it is
vivid in our minds. I feel Him begging us, pleading with us even to come to Him.

Will we be like the five foolish virgins who presumed that they had enough light in their lamps to
see them through the dark days, or will we be like the wise virgins who invested in extra oil so that
their lights would not go out? Will we be like the wife of Hosea or the Bride who has made herself
ready?

    Hosea 1:2 When the LORD began to speak through Hosea, the LORD said to him, "Go, take to
    yourself an adulterous wife and children of unfaithfulness, because the land is guilty of the vilest
    adultery in departing from the LORD."

    0Rev 19:7, 8 Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
    and His bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear." (Fine
    linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.)

It is my sincere prayer that you turn your affections and your attention to the Lord. Please - turn off the
noise so you can hear Him. I pray you will invest in the oil of the Lord. Seek the Lord while He can be
found. The Lord calls, He beckons, "Come!" But He does NOT force His will on us. Will you come as a
readied bride?

Come into the Holy of holies and worship your King. He is worthy.

       Romans 8:5 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.

The Hour is Late

7/12/06

Won't you come in? Can't you hear My voice beckoning you into the Holy of holies? Don't you
understand that I already know why it is you don't want to come into where I Am sits?
Everything is exposed in here. You prefer to come to church and go through the niceties and
don't realize that you are only in the courtyards; you have yet to come into My presence. You
want to sing songs that sound good. You don't want to draw too much attention to yourself. You
don't want to turn anyone off. You want it to last just only so long because you have places to go
and people to meet, and yet you leave the one Who ransomed your heart from destruction
standing there empty-handed. You fool yourself to think I don't see everything from where I sit.
The difference is that when you come into My Throne Room of Grace, you see what it is in you
that doesn't belong. The real reason you don't come because you know you must look at what is
really going on inside of yourself.

Don't you see that My desire for you is to be rid of the chains that bind you? Don't you
know that I love you with a love that is deeper than anything you can imagine?

 I desire to bring you to the King's banqueting table! You don't see that you have slop on your
plate. Can you see that taking sin into yourself is like eating rubbish? Why would you want to
eat garbage when I have a feast prepared for you? You are holding on to hidden sin and it keeps
you from My best - it keeps you from the Secret Place of the Most High. You refuse to come
into the Holy Place with Me because you will not release these insidious desires of yours. You
want to lie and cheat; greed runs amuck in those I call My own. Listen Child of Mine, you do
not hide a thing from I Am. You only hide it from yourself. Everything is going to be exposed
in the Day. Everything is to be revealed by the fire that burns in My eyes. That fire is My
passion for you, but it will consume everything that is not of Me. What will be left standing?

Come to Me and I will cleanse you. Don't wait! RUN to the Mercy Seat! Then you can
stand with Me and not apart from the One who covers your sins. Then you will be able to
worship in the power of My Spirit. Then you will be able to come to Me in truth. Then you
will be free!

Come! Come into the Holy Place! Come sit at My feet and learn from Me for I Am
humble of heart. You will find rest for your souls.

I stand at the crossroads looking down at My watch. I Am telling you plainly, the hour is late.
 Do not think that I come to take you up and out of your mess. I do not speak of what men
teach. I speak of the hour in your life that has come and I Am telling you, the hour is late.
Those who hear Me have been sending warnings to implore you to seek Me early, yet you
think you have all the time in the world. You don't. I see the time. The hour is late. My
love is great. Come and soak in My Presence and see what I Am can do with your life!

It's His LOVE church. Everything... it's all about His love. His discipline leads to holiness and
without it we are in trouble. There is a Scripture that I think will bless you (if you have made it this
far!) It is Hebrews 12:5-15. God's discipline yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness. Yum.
There's something sweet to sink your teeth into!

Will you let Him burn out everything in your heart that doesn't belong to Him; then will you ask
Him to leave everything of Him ablaze?

Seated with you in Christ,

Judy Bauman




Come! Walk on Water!

Come Walk On Water

7/2/06

Recently our congregation was asked to ask themselves, "What is
keeping me from freedom in Christ?"

This was the answer I immediately received from the Lord for the
Body of Christ:
What is keeping you from freedom in Me? It is your flesh, Beloved. You can't blame the devil
and I will tell you why. When I walked this earth, I told My disciples, "When the prince of this
world comes, he has nothing in Me." (John 14:30) Why was that?

It was because I was submitted to My Father's will. I was committed to His purpose and plan. I
was led by His Spirit - the Spirit of truth. (John 8:28-32) I have given you the blueprint! Look at
it. Follow it. Don't do anything that the Father hasn't shown you. (John 5:19) My Father will
never mislead you. He will lead you into places you don't think you can go - but if He has called
you to a place for a purpose - He will fulfill it.

Don't step out of the boat unless I invite you. BUT, if I invite you - "COME!"

Come immediately. Don't delay. Come! Do not question Me adnauseaum. You know My voice -
don't you? My sheep know My voice. (John 10) You are my sheep. I have called you by name.
Stop doubting. Stop having such small faith. You have My Spirit to teach you. You have My
word to confirm to you what is truth. Speak My truth. Speak the words I give you. Don't delay -
get out of the boat! Do you not want to walk on water?

Then come, Beloved. It is by My power and My grace that you are able. Your abilities are
perfected in and by My grace. My power is made perfect in your weakness.

Will you come?

The Master Surgeon
The Master Surgeon
My child, the work I do in you is not the work of the world. I see those things that must be cut out. Those
things that hinder and those things that cause you to react in ways you do not understand - they must
come out of you for you to walk forward in My will for your life. Trust Me with the knife as I am the Master
Surgeon. I can cut those cancerous ways out of your being and make you new again. When I Am the
One you turn to for help, you will see a change. Some say that leopards can't change their spots. This is
true, but I can change them if it is My desire! It is neither by your might nor by your power, but it is by My
Spirit. Let Me cut out the cancer in your soul. Let Me cut away the malignant growth. Let Me cleanse the
deep and infected wounds and remove all traces of gangrene. Don't you know that gangrene comes from
the lack of blood to living tissue? Let Me apply the blood of My Only Begotten Son to your deepest of
wounds. Let Me apply the Balm of Gilead. Let Me give you the heart transplant you so desperately need.
Let Me inject My DNA into the depths of your being. Watch as you are transformed from glory to glory!

Do not fret if this takes multiple surgeries. You are indeed going from glory to glory. This is a process,
beloved child. I know exactly how much you can really take at any given time. I will bring you into My
operating room when I know it is the precise time - not too soon - not too late. I will bring you in as many
times as it takes to cut away the deadness of your wound. I will only cut as deep as I know that you can
recover, and then I wait until you are truly ready again. This kind of work takes time. Do not worry about
your schedule or how far along you are in the process. I Am familiar with all your ways. You truly can
trust Me. Let Me touch that wound and bring restoration as you have never imagined.

Bind yourself to My Son. Bind yourself to My will. Bind your body to the perfect work of the cross. I will
loosen the enemy's strangle-hold. I will skillfully cut away his influence and remove his talons from the
death-grip they have had on you. Trust Me. All of the rejection and fear and demonic oppression will no
longer hold you back from My very best for you! I will never abandon you. Though your earthy father and
mother forsook you, I never will. I will bring you near and draw you to Myself. My arms will never drop
you. None can steal you from My embrace. Go to sleep and breathe deep from the depths of the well of
My love for you. Rest my love. Be still and know that I Am your God and your Father. When you awaken
from your slumber, I will have made a permanent change in you as I have replaced your wound with My
comfort, My love and My desire for you. Let My will be done in you, My precious earthen vessel, as it is in
heaven. Trust Abba to care for you in the way that I know best.

With everlasting love,

Your Father

Spirit of Haman Must Be Stopped By Spirit of Esther

Spirit of Haman must be Stopped by Spirit of Esther!
Hear O Church! Arise and walk in the spirit of Esther! Beloved, you are to look at Queen
Esther's example in her dealing with Haman to know how to deal with this treachery brewing in
Iran. This wicked plot to destroy Israel has come up to your Father's nostrils as a stench! How
foolish is this? This leader's pride is like Haman's in the book of Esther. He is of the spirit
Haman. Does he not know that the God of Israel's chosen people are hidden everywhere - even
within Iran's own top ranks? Your intercessions will bring this man's plotting to ruin! PRAY
FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM!

Go to this book, Church. Esther was a type and a shadow for you to follow. You are My lovely
and chosen bride. You are the one who can turn My head with your beauty and your grace.
Come and ask of Me now. Purify yourselves and come into My chambers. I will make known
to you how to pray. This is a love story that I gave you for instruction!

Haman thought he was so high and so great that all should bow down to him. When My servant,
Mordecai, refused to bow to him it made him furious. Haman learned Mordecai was Jewish and
so he sought to kill them all because of his hatred for Mordecai. He wanted to purge the world
of My people because one man refused to bow to him. So he went to the king of Persia, King
Ahasuerus (aka Xerxes), and received the king's permission to write letters to the entire empire
stating the Jewish people were to be utterly annihilated (on what is normally near February 28th
of the Gregorian Calendar, however falls on March 13-14, 2006). His empire had 127 provinces
and stretched from India to Ethiopia.

When Mordecai learned of the plot to destroy the Jews, he tore his clothes and cried out in
sackcloth and ashes. He got word to Esther that even she would not be able to escape this evil.
Then he relayed the famous words, "Who can say but that God has brought you in for such a
time as this." The Jews all fasted and prayed for Esther to be accepted into the king's inner court
so that he would intervene on their behalf. After the third day Esther put on her royal robes and
in her beautiful and gracious way came to present herself to the king. The king's response to her
was one of delight. Hear MY CHURCH! The king was delighted in her! He loved her and was
so taken by her beauty he not only offered her his golden scepter, but also up to half his
kingdom!

Esther, in My wisdom, didn't yet speak what was in her broken-heart. She only asked the king
and Haman to a banquet that she had prepared. As they enjoyed themselves, the king inquired of
her petition. Her only request was for him and Haman to return the second night and she would
set another banquet before them. Haman had no clue what was awaiting him. He left that feast
on top of the world.

Then he saw Mordecai who refused to bow, and Haman's blood boiled within him.

Haman was so filled with hatred that night he commissioned gallows 75 feet high to be built on
which to hang Mordecai. But the king's heart was stirred that very night and he was reminded of
Mordecai's loyalty to inform the king of a plot against his life. The king sought to honor
Mordecai and brought Haman in the next day to inquire what tribute should be paid to a loyal
man who pleased the king. Haman smugly thought of himself - that it was he who would be
honored - so he counseled the king. In every manner this man should be honored! He suggested
a royal robe, a royal horse and a royal crown - all which had been used by the king! And the
clincher was that one of the king's noble men was to escort him through the streets and shout
before him saying, "This is what is done for the man the king delights to honor!" All this Haman
said fully expecting he was to be the recipient! Then the king announced that Haman was to do
ALL he had recommended, but to bestow the honor to Mordecai the Jew! Haman obeyed and
did as the king commanded, but afterward he hung his head in utter humiliation and rushed to
return home to hide his shame.

Just that quickly he was summoned for the second dinner with Queen Esther where the king
asked for her petition. She beseeched King Ahasuerus to spare her people from utter slaughter
and annihilation. When he demanded to know who was so reprehensible to do such a thing, the
Queen told him it was Haman.

Haman was hung that night on the very gallows he had built for Mordecai and his sons later
followed him to that end. Read what is recorded in Esther and pay close attention to what has
been emphasized:

      8:2 So the king took off his signet ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it to
       Mordecai; and Esther appointed Mordecai over the house of Haman.
      8:8 You yourselves write a decree concerning the Jews, as you please, in the king's
       name, and seal it with the king's signet ring; for whatever is written in the king's
       name and sealed with the king's signet ring no one can revoke.


HEAR O CHURCH!!! The Lord your God is showing you something in this that needs to be
applied to this ?Haman' of Persia. Look at this carefully:

      8:7 Then King Ahasuerus said to Queen Esther and Mordecai the Jew, "Indeed, I have
       given Esther the house of Haman, and they have hanged him on the gallows because he
       tried to lay his hand on the Jews.

Israel needs our prayers. Those who cry out for freedom in Persia - Iran - also need our prayers,
as they are under the rule of this vile spirit. Make no mistake that this man's intention is to
destroy all of Israel. That appetite for murder will not be satisfied by just destroying the one
country (Mordecai). Haman's spirit is after the Jewish people wherever they may be. The decree
will go out for all to be murdered wherever they may be because this spirit will not rest until it
sees all Jews dead or itself is killed. Just as Mordecai warned Esther, so must My church take
this warning:

      8:13 "Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king's palace any more
       than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and
       deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house
       will perish.

Make haste. Pray for the triumph of Esther and Mordecai to sweep through the Middle East.
Write and declare My word over Israel. Pray for the peace of My city, Jerusalem! Write it and
seal it with the signet ring that I give you. My third day has come and you may come boldly to
the inner court to My Throne of Grace! The golden scepter is extended. So COME! You say to
Me, "Lord, Come quickly!" But I say to you, "Esther, My Bride, My Church, COME
QUICKLY!"

Scriptures to consider:

       Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities,
       against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of
       wickedness in the heavenly places.

       Matthew 5:43-45 "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate
       your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to
       those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you
       may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the
       good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust."

       2 Corinthians 10:3-5 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the
       flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down
       strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the
       knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ
       2 Chronicles 20:14 "Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem . Thus says
       the Lord to you: 'Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the
       battle is not yours, but God's.




DECREE:



This decree is written this day February 11, 2006 Gregorian calendar; 13 Shevat 5766 on the
Jewish calendar. This date is also known as the 27th anniversary of The Revolution of Iran.

I write not on my own authority but on the authority given to me by my Father and through the
blood shed on the Cross at Calvary by His First-born, Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ. Through His
resurrection and by His Holy Spirit, He has given me the directive to make plain this decree. My
credentials are listed in the Lamb's Book of Life. I am His possession and have been marked
with His seal. It is His signet ring which seals this decree.

The Father I speak of is the God of all creation, the Maker of the heavens and the earth. This
same God, whom I call Father, has called Israel His own.

      Psalms 135:4 For the LORD has chosen Jacob to be his own, Israel to be His
       treasured possession.

God Himself named Israel

      As it is written in Genesis 35:9-12 After Jacob returned from Paddan Aram, God
       appeared to him again and blessed him. God said to him, "Your name is Jacob, but
       you will no longer be called Jacob; your name will be Israel." So He named him
       Israel. And God said to him, "I am God Almighty; be fruitful and increase in
       number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will
       come from your body. The land I gave to Abraham and Isaac I also give to you, and
       I will give this land to your descendants after you."

The LORD will not forsake them

      1 Kings 6:13 "I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will not forsake My
       people Israel."

God does not take back His calling or His gifts.

      Romans 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

This decree is written to warn this president who has openly called for Israel to be "wiped off the
map," to repent for making this threat. Global authorities which overlook nuclear policy must
not be ignored. He has placed himself in the same shoes of Haman as well as those ?sons' - those
who are made in his same image - all of which will meet a similar end if an honest apology is not
forthcoming. Haman suffered the death that he himself had devised for Mordecai. The very
weapons devised against the Jewish nation of Israel will come back on this president's own house
if he does not turn away from his course of action. There is time for repentance. Comply with
global authorities and repent to the Lord of hosts for launching threats against His treasured
Israel. The Lord God is faithful and just to forgive all sin and to cleanse you of all
unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

Right now I launch prayers of peace over Jerusalem. I release a shield of faith over Israel. I pray
for the strengthening of Michael - the great prince who stands watch over Israel - and all who are
within his ranks. Israel, you who are great beloved by the Lord, see to it that your names are
written in the Book of Life. Read Daniel 12:1

I pray for the redemption of the Persian people. Look up O People of Iran! Your Help draws
near! I pray for those who are in captivity, especially the woman who have endured great torture
at the hands of the wicked. I launch ?peace-seeking' missiles into Iran! I pray for the Prince of
Peace to reign in Iran.

I sign this and take the signet ring given me and seal this decree now in the Mighty and powerful
name above all names, Jesus. Amen - so be it!

Judy Bauman

Release the Cockle Burs


Release the Cockle Burs
Judy Bauman

This word from the Lord came to me for a specific person but the Lord showed me this is a
widespread problem in His Body. When you consider how prolific weeds can be, especially this
type, it would make sense that we need to set a guard against them spreading. The Lord had me
rewrite parts of it to speak more broadly to His Church.

"I speak to you, My child. You ask who I Am? I am your Father who made You for My pleasure.
You are made to accomplish much for My sake. I have not given you the desire to create for your
purpose, but for Mine. I have seen your anguish and I have seen your pain. I have seen you
abandoned and I have seen you afflicted. It pleases Me when I see you are not moved by this
world's system. This motivates Me to work on your behalf. Come to Me. Come to Me when your
heart is breaking and no one understands you. You are looking for someone to understand you
and that need of yours has not been fulfilled. It couldn't be. Had you found someone to look to
other than Me, you would not be able to accomplish what I have set before you. You have to rely
on Me. You have to turn to Me. I wait for you. I wait and I watch. I have waited a long time and
I wait longer. I speak to you. I long to be heard by you. I long for you to recognize My voice. I
have great secrets kept in storage to release to you. They will not be given unless you come to
Me.

The desires of your heart will be given only when you have let go of what you are holding in
your hand. You are holding a cocklebur bush. See
http://www.psu.missouri.edu/fishel/common_cocklebur.htm and
http://waynesword.palomar.edu/plapr98.htm Be sure and read the toxic symptoms as this is what
the enemy of your soul desires to do to you. You feel the effects of the poison even now. As long
as you are holding onto the thorns, I cannot help you. Hold onto Me not the burs. You have
gotten too use to the pain. You must submit yourself to Me. - your true Father, to remove the
burs, the barbs, and their toxic results. The cockles have barbs and stick to everything they touch.
They are painful to grab and difficult to pull off, but they cannot be left to further infect.

But there is something I want you to see. I gave inspiration to make Velcro from this annoying
plant. If you come to Me, and I mean truly come to Me and seek My face, I will reveal mysteries
from your life's cockleburs. The things that have annoyed you the most will be sources of your
greatest victories. The things that have hindered your walk with Me will cause you to run and not
grow weary - if you faint not! You will have many triumphs if you will submit yourself to Me. I
have created you to fellowship with Me and that is why there is so much unrest in your soul. You
need My peace but you will not get it with success or fame. You will get the peace and security
you seek when you give yourself totally in fellowship with Me. Walk with Me in the cool of the
day, beloved. Seek Me early while I can be found. I have created you to fellowship with Me and
that is why there is so much unrest in your soul. You look here and you look there. You do not
find rest because you haven't come to Me. I am your first resort, not your last. Release what you
are holding onto. Those things that have wounded you. Those rejects and disappointments and
failures. Just like cockleburs, they are sticking to you even when you let go. That is where I
come in! I will take those sticky, pesky, annoying, painful burs of your life and I will remove
their toxic affects. I will cause them to become seeds of victory.

I must warn you. These burs must be released from your grip soon! The devil, your enemy, is
desiring to cause these wounds to hurt you, to destroy you, to bring you to ruin. He is petitioning
Me to sift you. You will slip through his fingers if the burs are gone. If you release the burs all he
will have in his hand is the chaff that I wanted removed in the first place. If the burs are still in
your hands, you will be stuck in Satan's trap - entangled by the burs in his net. Time is short.
Stop taking the burs to yourself - stop feeding them with words that give them energy to
reproduce. They desire to consume you. Rid yourself of these cumbersome stickers. Let Me dig
up the root of bitterness!
Come to Me and I will give you rest. I will give you a future. I will give you hope renewed. I
will set your feet up high on a mountain. I will be as the eagle who swoops down and brings you
to the high place on My wings. Trust Me, My child. Trust Me. I will never let you down. Release
the cockleburs to Me. Don't hold them any longer. Don't pull them close to yourself. It is My
desire to propel you. Get ready! Rid yourself of the cockle burs and get ready!!! You are about to
be launched into your destiny and My purpose! Read what My servants wrote in Psalms 34 and
Hebrews 12. These are for you today and for this season. Do not despise small beginnings. It is a
season of grooming. Do not harden your heart as they did in the rebellion. Trust Me to work all
things for your good for you are truly called according to My purpose."



Father's Word To You

Father's Word to You
Judy Bauman

I have already given you everything
You need to fight the enemy of your soul.
You are My child,
You are My soldier,
You are My friend.

Pray to Me as Jesus prayed.
I Am His Father and
I Am your Father.

You are more than a conqueror
You have already been given the victory.
You are My righteous instrument ~ My instrument of choice.

I have given you keys.
I have given you My power and authority.
I have chosen you and I will send you in My time.

You are My diamond and you are in the process of being polished.
You need to trust Me and not your old man.
Don't trust the ways of old.

Give yourself wholly to Me and
I will give you the desires of your heart.
Trust Me, obey Me, follow Me, love Me; for I will never disappoint you.



You Are Not Rowing Alone
You Are Not Rowing Alone!
Judy Bauman

In regard to your prayers: You may feel that you're isolated and in a boat rowing in circles.
The enemy has tried to influence you into thinking that you are ineffective and all alone.
But take heart! There are others on the boat rowing with you. Even if you can't see them,
they are there. God's intercessor's are praying the Father's heart and taking the boat in the
same direction. You will reach the same destination because it is He who is directing the
boat. The Holy Spirit is with you!

A few years ago I was at a woman's conference, and out of the 9000 women, there was a large
group of 900 who had gone to one specific break-out session. It was on prayer and intercession.
Just before the speaker took the platform, the Lord spoke to my heart and said, "Look around at
this large number of women." I turned around and looked from the front of the room to the back
and was surprised to see the room had become totally packed with standing room only. He said,
"When you are in your prayer closet, you think you are all alone and that you are only one voice
trying to make a difference. You feel like you are not breaking through the darkness and
reaching Me. Know that if I have you praying for something I have others praying for the same
thing too. So don't feel you are alone - as you are all seated together in Christ right now. When
you go home you will feel alone, but you won't be. Understand that if you are the only one who
obeys My command to pray, I will hear your voice even if it is the only one speaking My heart.
The prayers of the righteous avail much."

I pray this encourages you today!

Your prayer partner,
Judy




To Intercessors

The Lord has shown me and a few others that the enemy seeks to take the breath and the voice from the
intercessors. He is using bronchitis, laryngitis, asthma, allergies and whatever else he can to stop us
during this critical time to intercede for our city, country, Israel and the world.

Right now I bind your mind to the mind of Christ and your will to the will of the Father. I bind your body to
the perfect work of the cross and I loose the enemy's hold from your throat, lungs, esophagus, and entire
body in the powerful name of Jesus! I apply the healing balm of Gilead. Amen! Thank You, Father! We
praise You and bless You for Your wisdom!

Even if all you can do is groan, then groan as the Holy Spirit will make known that prayer in the
heavenlies!

Be blessed as you are a blessing, Judy
Incline Your Ear to Me

Incline Your Ear To Me

This is shared and written for your edification, so when these things come to pass you will see God's
hand on you and you will rejoice because of His faithfulness to you and His love for you.

I heard:

"Do not be overly concerned about the pruning which has come and is to come. It is from Me and will
accomplish what I have set out to do in your midst."

"Incline your ear to Me. I am pouring forth a new wine and it will take a season to mature. The fruit that is
to come from this pruning will be not only sweet to your taste but filling. It will also produce a bumper
crop."

"Fear not! I say again! FEAR NOT! For I Am with you."

"You plant, some water. But I will, I will, I will bring forth the growth."

"Seek My face."

"Seek me early, seek Me late, seek Me in the midst of trial, seek me in the quiet hours of the night. SEEK
ME!"

"I will be found by you and I will tell you those things that your heart longs to hear."

Amen

In His grace,

Judy

I Am Your Security Blanket

I Am Your Security Blanket
Judy Bauman
Recently, I was returning from a wonderful conference in CT. On the flight home a child sitting
two or three seats in front of me was really upset and crying. I felt I was to press in and pray for
him. He cried out in a loud voice, "I want my blankey!" When he said this I heard:
"As a child cries because he is afraid of being in the unfamiliar surroundings of a plane, and
agitation sets the stage for an uncomfortable ride, he reaches for what he knows. He reaches for
something that makes him secure when the lights are out and he's all alone."

"He cries for his mother to give him a blanket. Not just any blanket - HIS BLANKEY!"

"I Am your Security Blanket," says the Lord your God. "Reach for me in times of distress and I
will wrap My warmth around you. I will wrap My love securely around you and you need not
fear."

"Hard times come and hard times go, but I remain the same yesterday, today and forever.
Remember My servant's word in Psalm 91 and abide in Me and you will be secure."

Through!

Through
Judy Bauman

5/7/05


On April 29th while reading a teaching by Johnny Enlow entitled, You Have Not Passed This
Way Before, I had a quick vision. Given the fresh 'bread' found in his article, I found this vision
like frosting on the cake.

You can read it in its entirety at:
http://rivermistlighthouse.org/you_have_not_passed_this_way_before_by_johnny_enlow1

Vision: I was talking to a person standing in front of me. The Lord was standing behind me. I
became transparent. The Lord reached His hands THROUGH me and lovingly embraced the
person. He then pulled the person THROUGH me and to Himself. End

While I thought it was interesting, it happened so quickly it hadn't really occurred to me that I
had just had a vision. As I continued to read the article, there was a word that jumped out at me.
The word was all in caps and it was the word, THROUGH. It stunned me for a second as I
thought about what I had just seen. This is what the sentence declared:

"We have so limited the Holy One of Israel and we will be astounded at what He does
THROUGH us in these last days."

The sense I got from the Lord about this vision was that I, being representative of the Body of
Christ, was talking to an unbeliever. It seems clear the Father wants us, as His Body, to be
transparent so that He can draw the lost to Himself. We live and move and have our being IN
Jesus. Being IN Christ and doing things THROUGH Him is how we fulfill the call to be His
ambassadors to make His appeal and carry out the great commission given to us each. Our
commission is found in Matthew 28:18-20:

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven
and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all
things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the
age." Amen.

It also paints a clear picture of John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the
life. No one comes to the Father except THROUGH Me." NKJV (Emphasis mine)

It is my desire to exhort you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, fully
pleasing Him. I pray that you would be fruitful in every good work and increasing in knowledge
and all wisdom and spiritual understanding of God. May you walk worthy of Christ who called
you into His own kingdom and glory. He has anointed you to be His ambassador. Jesus is
making His plea to the lost THROUGH you so that they may be reconciled to God the Father
THROUGH God the Son. Jesus taught that we do this by walking in His grace and truth
THROUGH Him, for He is the Spirit of truth. It is knowing the truth and walking in the truth
that sets us free. First gird up your loins with the belt of truth, continue to dress in God's armor,
and walk in the truth of God's Word. Please see Ephesians 6:10-18 and John chapters 14-17 for
further insight. A deeper study of the word THROUGH will thoroughly bless you. Remember
that the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Grace and peace - through Him,
Judy




You Are the Starting Point!

You Are The Starting Point!
Judy Bauman
This word was spoken to me during worship on Sunday and is humbly submitted for your
consideration. For several months I have been sensing a ?breaking' coming to the Church
(universal). Understand this, it is not something that is going to happen somewhere else. This is
going to happen in you. This is going to happen in me. The breaking must start in each of us!

6/5/05

"My heart is grieved at the division in My Church."

"Striving [for position], gossip, jealousy, and division plague My Body."
"You cry out to Me to revive the church, but yet I strive and wrestle with you to get you to
obey My written Word. Even My Rhema Word is quickly overlooked and forgotten."

"Do you want revival? YOU ARE THE STARTING POINT! Ask for the breaking to start
in you. Ask Me to reveal your areas of weakness and sin. Let Me break you! Let Me cause
your heart to break."

"It is too easy for you to see this in others and forget it is still in you."

"I Am Holy and I Am not going to strive with you forever. I will not strive with flesh
forever. You are My servant and you must not strive."

"Come to Me all of you who are weary with religion and works, who are called by My
name. Rend your hearts, repent and turn away from your sin and I will heal you, your
church, your land. Thus says the Lord your God."

Because of the widespread misuse of this statement, I hesitated to write, "Thus says the Lord
your God." So I stopped and asked the Lord if He really wanted me to end this word in this
manner and He said, "Yes, write down, "Thus says the Lord your God." I tell you this because it
is not something I take lightly.

Upon reflection of this word I have become acutely aware of the Lord's broken heart over His
Body's disunity. We say we want to see people saved, but then we strive with one another. How
can this be? Why would anyone want to become a part of Christ's Body, when the Body is at war
with itself? We need to stop the internal fighting and come into unity by being obedient to God's
Word, His will, and His ways.

Gal 5: 13 For you have been called to live in freedom - not freedom to satisfy your sinful
nature, but freedom to serve one another in love. 14 For the whole law can be summed up
in this one command: "Love your neighbor as yourself." 15 But if instead of showing love
among yourselves you are always biting and devouring one another, watch out! Beware of
destroying one another. 16 So I advise you to live according to your new life in the Holy
Spirit. Then you won't be doing what your sinful nature craves.

25 If we are living now by the Holy Spirit, let us follow the Holy Spirit's leading in every
part of our lives. 26 Let us not become conceited, or irritate one another, or be jealous of
one another.

If you would like to pray, let us now go boldly to the Throne of Grace. Father God, we come to
You in the matchless and mighty name of Your Son, Jesus. Reveal in us where there is both
hidden and known offenses. Reveal the thorns in our hearts and remove them. We know that this
cannot be done without repentance, so we willingly repent of holding bitterness and resentment
towards our brethren. [Speak specifically to the Father about whom and what has offended you,
or whom you have offended.] We ask You, Holy Spirit, to remove the infection that these thorns
have caused, and for You to apply Your healing Balm of Gilead to these wounds. Break our
hearts of stone! Graft the skin of Your heart over our hearts, Lord, so that what is imperative to
You will be transplanted into us. May areas of weakness become areas of strength and unity. Let
us cast our care upon You, for You care for us. Vengeance is Yours, not ours. Let us be
reconciled to You and to one another! Let us cry to You, "Not my will, but Your will be done,
Father!" Amen

Psalm 133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in
unity!

In His great love,
Judy



To Be a Friend of Jesus
To Be A Friend of Jesus
Judy Bauman

2/1/06

During worship I received a 'download' from heaven about what Jesus is seeking in our friendship with Him.
As I sat down to write the word the Lord gave me, my pastor introduced a guest speaker - a pastor from Costa
Rica. My church and the speaker's church in Costa Rica have been connected for years. They went through the
customary introductions and pleasantries, but I was focused on writing. Suddenly, my thoughts were
interrupted as the guest speaker began his message. It was so closely in line with what the Lord had just shared
with me, I had no choice but to take note of this engaging confirmation! So first I will share the word I received
from the Lord, and then I will share the heart of the message given by the visiting pastor. It is my prayer that
it will spur on your relationship - your friendship - with the Lord Jesus in a mighty way! Let us give Him the
desires of His heart!
In His joy,
Judy

To Be A Friend of Jesus:
"You come to Me and call Me friend, and rightly so for that it is what I Am. My friendship
is multifaceted, and sadly for Me, so many have a one dimensional relationship with
Me."

"I want you to stop and think about your best friend."

"I want you to think about what you do together and what you say to one another."

"Now, My friend, I want you to look at our friendship."

"Do you see why you why you may be feeling like I am distant from you?"
"If your best friend called only when they need something, how would your friendship
flourish? If your friend did all the talking while you patiently listened and then turned
and walked away as you were about to open your heart, how would your trust in that
friend grow? If you were the one always giving and your friend only took, then how long
would that friendship last?"

"Friend, come and sit with Me. Come and ask Me what is on My mind. Come and listen.
Come and be a friend to Me. I will always be a friend to you. I will always listen to you, I
know your thoughts before you even speak, but I still listen to you. I listen because I
love you. I want you to listen to Me. Oh how much tighter our bond will become when
you know My heart as I know yours."

The Lord just gave me a precious Scripture. "Come to Me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give
you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find
rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pastor Ronald Diaz
God made us to commune with Him. He is so much into relationships; He is even in
relationship with Himself! That is why He is a triune God! The Lord is relational and
desires our love. He says, "LOVE ME!" He is not shy about it! God makes it clear that
He desires our attention. We need to stop being so task-oriented and be relation-
oriented. That is your foundation. "Let's spend time together!"

We're so task oriented we need to bring our work to the Lord. He knows we have things
to do. So bring your work to Him and do it together. He wants to be with you in
everything you are doing.

Jesus didn't come to give us religion or more tasks. Jesus came and made it real
simple for us. He gave us two things to do. Love Him. And Love others - giving us the
ministry of reconciliation. We are the reconcilers between God and the lost. But the
first and most important thing is to love our God.



2006- The Year for the Flesh to Submit to the Spirit


2006 The Year For Flesh To Submit To the Spirit
Judy Bauman
This word from the Lord keeps ringing in my ears, "Satan is out to destroy you, and he is using
your own appetite to do it." He spoke this to a friend of mine who then shared it with me. It has
been a seed planted whose time has come to bear fruit.
 It is my belief that this year, 2006, is the year for us to align ourselves physically with God's
plan for our lives. I believe the Lord has shown me that His supernatural grace is awaiting all
who will call upon Him concerning the condition of their health and weight. His grace truly is
sufficient for us; however, there are certain seasons where He opens up the windows of heaven
to give grace and more grace for His specific purpose.

 Six being the number of man, or the number of flesh, I believe that the Holy Spirit is prompting
us to get our flesh to line up with God's word. The Lord has repeatedly confirmed this message
to me and I pray this word will touch you concerning what seems to be a plague upon the church.
Many in the Body of Christ, including myself, are out of shape physically. As a result many in
the church are falling ill and some have already succumbed. I believe many have met the Lord
before their true time because they didn't submit to Him to get their bodies into shape for the task
at hand. This does however keep us from fulfilling our mission in this life as God would have it
fulfilled. This is not meant to condemn us. On the contrary! This word is meant to spur us on to
deliverance!

 As we know, diabetes and obesity are at record highs in America and around the world. Health
alerts posted are found everywhere in media. The medical profession is expecting a crisis on the
system because of the current health trends. Since New Year's Day is the classic season for
'resolutions' it would seem this is the time to take action. However, let's not take action according
to the flesh - in our own power - let us take action by God's power and by His grace. Let us as
the Body of Christ act now and be examples to the world of God's goodness and grace as we care
for the temples of the Holy Spirit that the Father has made us. God has entrusted us to this task.
Let being His temple be our motivation. Let our love for Jesus be our motivation. Remember
when Paul exhorted us to imitate him as he imitates Christ? Remember when he said, 'Be an
example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.'? See 1 Timothy
4:12 and 1 Corinthians 11:1. We truly CAN do all things that strengthen us! Philippians 4:13

Church, I believe that our example of taking care of the temple of the Holy Spirit needs to be
taken seriously. See 1 Corinthians 3:16, 17 and Romans 12:1-3. Maybe you are at a place that
this is not important enough to you for you to take action. I have been complaining about my
weight and general lack of energy for a few years now without truly taking action. So trust me, I
understand. But for my sake and for yours it is my deepest desire for that to come to a screeching
halt. Faith without works is dead.

 If God is speaking to you right now and you know it - then let's come together as Christ's body
and do something about it! Let us take the Lord's hand and be delivered together. Are we not to
be examples of God's grace, love and purity to the world? Are we not the ones who have the
Holy Spirit to help us in all things? Do we not have the Spirit of Truth residing in us - giving us
self-control? Let God be true and every man a liar! Clearly, Satan the enemy of our souls has
crept in unaware and we have allowed it. We must first be repentant for the lack of care we have
given the temple of the Holy Spirit. We need to become as the Mighty Men of Valor and become
vigilant in the fight - taking this battle very seriously. Our very lives depend on it, and not only
that, but many other souls eternally depend on it! We must cast down every thought down and
into obedience to the Lord Jesus and take every thought captive. 2 Corinthians 10:4, 5 God will
give us the grace to win - as He has made us more than conquerors, however, we must take
action!

 I believe that every work of the flesh is going to be dealt with this year! This will be true
first in the church and also in the world. Your addiction may not be food. It may be
alcohol, drugs (prescription or illicit), sex, pornography, or smoking cigarettes. It may be
something else, but you will know that the Lord is dealing with you. Let us learn to use the
Word - our sword - to fight and prevail over our own fleshly appetites Satan has been using
to defeat us.

We are all going to be dealt with this year concerning our flesh. If you obey He will see you
through this battle. If you disobey then He may lift His grace until the next season when He sees
fit to open the door for you. I implore you to obey God now during this season of grace over
flesh, and see His Mighty Right Hand of deliverance over your life. See Isaiah 41:10.

I know some have to hear the news that they have diabetes or even wait until a heart attack or
cancer strikes before taking action, but I pray that every person reading this will be infused by
God to take real action. Desperate times call for desperate measures I've heard! It is my desire for
us to take action now. If you are one who has received this type of distressing medical news, be
encouraged that the Lord is opening the door to you to turn the tables on the enemy. Death has
lost its sting! God has you in His hands. There are no better hands for you to be in.

Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because
he trusts in You.

Three days this week I was awoken at 8:09 (I'm on vacation - thank God for libraries with
computers!) After the third time I thought maybe the Lord was leading me into His word. I began
to seek out Scriptures. Since I have been urged this is the year that the flesh is subject to the
Spirit I found my search fascinating!

Romans 8:9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God
dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.

1 Corinthians 8:9 But beware lest somehow this liberty of yours become a stumbling
block to those who are weak.

 2 Corinthians 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was
rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become
rich.

Zechariah 8:9 "Thus says the Lord of hosts: 'Let your hands be strong, You who have
been hearing in these days These words by the mouth of the prophets, Who spoke in
the day the foundation was laid For the house of the Lord of hosts, That the temple
might be built.
In Hebrews, Ezekiel and Jeremiah 8:9, I would suggest that you read verses around them so that
the ninth verse will make sense.

Here is an idea: If this word does resound in you, please contact me and let's see if there is a way
that we can help to keep one another accountable. I believe that is the primary reason for
fellowship - accountability.

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance!

Judy



Our Number 1 Goal
Dear Loved Ones,

There is something that happened last week that REALLY blessed me and I want to share it with you. As
of late, I have really been going through a spiritual fire. As we know, that is when the 'fourth Man' shows
up! Last week I had an errand to run to deliver something to a local church. As I drove I said, "Lord, I
really need to talk to someone about this; I really do not know what to do." Just then I remembered the
pastor of the church that I was heading to had been highly recommended the year before to me as an
expert in family matters. He was trained through Campus Crusade for Christ and does seminars all over
the country. Anyway, I thought if I were to run into him I would speak to him, but as I came in he was
driving out. I thought, 'Ok Lord. Maybe You have someone else in mind." However, as I started into the
church he came driving back and pulled up right next to me! I spoke to him a bit and cut to the chase and
told him what was troubling me. He spoke for a while but said, "Here is my 30 second advise for you."

"You have to separate your goal from your desires."

He didn't say, "Goals" he said, "Goal" Singular. He explained, "Your #1 goal is to glorify God in all you
say and do, your desires are things you want to have happen. In other words it is your goal to glorify
God, but it is your desire for your family to glorify God. You have to separate them. You cannot change
others; you can only change yourself."

This may sound simplistic, but I am here to tell you that one thing has really freed me up! (No smell of
smoke here!) I began to confess, "Lord, may all I do, say, think and feel Glorify You!" (I added the think
and feel because what we think affects our words and what we feel affects our actions.) I have to
continually ask myself, "Does it (what I just said, did, thought or felt) glorify God?" It is amazing how I
discovered many things do not. As these things are revealed in my life, I apologize to the Lord, accept
His forgiveness and His help, and move on.

I pray today you make this your GOAL: To "Glorify God in everything you do, say, think or feel." When
you fail, as we all do, I pray you will also ask for forgiveness, accept it and His help and move forward!

In His love and mercy (with you),
Judy



Bibles Back in Schools
                                                                                                 2/4/03




          WE MUST GET BIBLES BACK IN SCHOOLS

In 1998, I awoke from a troubling dream, sat straight up in my bed and said in a loud voice, "We must
get Bibles back in schools!!!"



You may think, "That's impossible."



What is impossible with man is possible with God!



Four years later I am standing in my bathroom and the answer comes to me in an instant. "It is so easy a
child could understand how to get Bibles back in schools!" I said out loud to myself.



First we have to understand who we are in Christ.                Go to 1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen
generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the
praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;



Until you truly understand what the Lord has called you to be. You are a chosen generation, a royal
priesthood, and a holy nation. You are God's own special people. Why??? So that you can proclaim and
praise the ONE who saved you out of darkness into His marvelous light.



2 Co 5: 20 Tells us that we are Christ's ambassadors. An ambassador is a person who is a diplomatic
agent of the highest rank; an authorized messenger or representative.
They represent their nation or kingdom. In the natural, an ambassador has the responsibility to speak
for their leaders. They must know the heart of their leader because are given extra ordinary
representation of their entire nation! They speak for their whole nation. As an ambassador of Christ we
represent God's kingdom! We are to represent His will and His ways.



2 Co 3: 2, 3 You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men; clearly you are an
epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets
of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart



We are walking epistles of Christ, wherever we go the Bible goes! If you are in the Word and the Word
is in you, then whereever you go, the Bible is there! It does no good to get a physical book into the
library of the school if it will only sit there on the shelf. You must be the living word and entice others to
read what you have read. It is not illegal to bring your Bible to school, have a prayer meeting or Bible
study before or after school. Be fishers of men and be the Bible. Be doers of the word! James 1: 22 But
be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. Amen

Vision of the Cross
Vision Of The Cross;
Words Of Warning
Judy Bauman

Dear Ones in Christ,

Though this vision and word was given on July 12, 2000, only now do I believe I
am released to share this with you. I do so with the permission and blessing of our
elders.

THE SETTING

Morning Prayer took place at 5:30 a.m. at the home of our elders, Sam and Linda Jackson. It
lasted about 5 months and this specific morning was the culmination of that time. Once in awhile
others had made the 14 mile trek from town, but generally it was just Sam, Linda, my husband,
Jeff, and I who regularly attended. This particular morning it was appropriately only the four of
us, as we had that day completed a 50 day time of consecration. It was a very difficult time of
testing to prepare us for hard days to come. When we arrived that morning Linda was preparing
the Lord's Supper. It was so joyful because the Lord had also spoken to me en route to end this
50 day period by sharing the cup and the bread, and here Linda was already setting the table
when we arrived! It was a wonderful confirmation for us both. She had been impressed to use her
wedding glasses. The groom's glass was there, but we all drank from the bride's glass. The air
was charged with expectation. It was a very solemn and reflective time.

THE VISION OF THE CROSS

After we had taken the bread and the cup we each quietly wept as we worshipped. There was
such a sweet and powerful presence of the Lord. Suddenly, I heard a deep rumbling like an
earthquake, but it seemed to be centered in the table. I opened my eyes and looked around to see
if anyone else had heard it, but they were quietly praying. Thinking I had imagined it, I shut my
eyes. Again the rumbling started. This time I kept my eyes shut and 'saw' as in a vision, coming
up from the middle of the table, the Cross of Christ. It was very craggy, dirty and rugged. I was
afraid to look at it; afraid but compelled to look anyway. As I saw the cross coming up, I saw the
top of Jesus' head and the Crown of Thorns smashed onto His bleeding head. Knowing what was
to come next, I turned away as I didn't want to see anymore. The rumbling continued and I knew
the cross was continuing to rise up. I could hear the Lord Jesus gently asking me to look at Him.
I glanced over in time to see His chest and extended arms on the crossbeam. When I saw His
hands nailed into the Cross I was so grief-stricken and terrified, I turned away again. I wanted to
see Him - but I didn't want to see Him like that! By this time the rumbling had stopped as the
cross was completely lifted up straight above me in the center of the table. The Lord again
tenderly yet firmly spoke to my heart, "Look at Me." As I slowly opened my eyes to look up, I
first saw His feet and then I saw His legs. They were muddy and cut up with a mixture of dried
and fresh blood running down them. Then I saw the face of Christ beaten to a bloody pulp. His
eyes were swollen shut and bruised. I didn't want to look; I couldn't bear it. Then His sweet voice
resolutely commanded, "Look at Me." I looked straight at His beaten and disfigured face and
wept. He slightly opened His left swollen eye and looked long at me. It broke my heart to see
Him in such terrible pain and so close to death. Even at such a dark time, there was a light in His
eye that compelled me to gaze at Him. Then He did something that shocked me. He mustered a
grin and winked at me with that swollen eye. He said, "Watch what happens next, Toots!" Then
there was a brilliant flash of light that appeared to go from one end of a horizon to the other. The
vision ended. I knew what I saw was the light of His resurrection. At first I wasn't sure if I had
imagined this whole scene or what had just happened, especially when He called me ?Toots' -
something that my uncle used to affectionately call me when I was a child. That totally caught
me off guard! Then we all spontaneously started to pray and worship together out loud.

(I will add here, to the glory of God, that this vision happened four years prior to Mel Gibson's
movie, The Passion of the Christ. When I saw that movie I was so stunned, not only because of
its content, but because the actor portrayed had the exact face the Lord showed me that morning
on the Cross!)

THE WORDS OF WARNING:
As we began to pray, this somber word came forward. Sam and Linda both have a prophetic
mantle.

Linda spoke:

"As you would sweep, clean and knock down the cobwebs before applying paint, so I apply a
new paint. But, I brush upon you a new, fresh anointing on your hearts. I paint a new anointing
on your heart. Just as with each war and revolution, there are new tools and new weapons
developed. As I do in a new move, I cannot use old tools. There will be new paint, and new
anointing to walk in a new day."

Sam spoke:

"This is the hour I spoke of that I will shake heaven and earth. All that has been built on the sand
of men - like sink holes - will be swallowed up. I will build My house. No more will they say,
'Run here - run there.' I will send a famine of My Word. Yes, My Word. They shall seek My
Word and only those to find it will be those who seek. [Those who diligently seek; will be the
bearers of My Word.] Everything that can be shaken WILL be shaken. You will know the truth
from false. You will not be deceived if you abide in My place. My house is a house of safety.
Abide in Me."

"Come to My light. Even the dimmest of light will draw man to My house. I have allowed this
gross darkness. I allowed Satan, as I allowed Pharaoh to bring darkness. My glory WILL be
seen. You are My houses, My living stones. Think it not strange concerning the ripping and
tearing. Let not your heart be troubled. This must come to pass in My house. It is for My
purpose."

"There will be earthquakes and rumors of earthquakes. There will be wars and rumors of wars,
but the earthquakes I send are going to shake My places of worship. Places of worship have been
a stench in My nostrils. I WILL shake and tear them down. There will be wars in your own
family in My house. They will turn against you. People will come against you in My own
house."

They tell you, "Dance! There will be no church as usual."

"All will worship Me [in spirit and in truth]. No more biting and devouring. I WILL restore My
glory. They will say, "Is this the Lord?" They bite and devour [My little sheep]. But My truth
will be seen."

The Spider

At this point the lights went off and then back on very quickly. When the lights came back on, a
large spider was walking right in front of us. I quickly killed the spider and put him in the trash.
This is important because it is addressed later in the prophecy.

Sam moved into a prayer at this point speaking to the Lord:
"Everything that You have not planted will be rooted out. You start with Your house, Your
elders, everything that is not of You will be struck down. We submit to You. We will not put our
hand to the Ark - we will allow You to shake it. We will not carry it in an unworthy manner."
(An earlier prophecy told us that God was shaking the 'ark' and that anyone putting their hand to
it to stabilize it would be struck dead.)

"Aaron's dead rod bore fruit. You will stop the mouths of the people. You will show who is Your
Aaron and the people will know. You will show with signs following. It is Your hour and we
thank You. We anticipate You. We're tired of our own programs, our own works. You will
complete and finish. Your work hour has come. It is here. You have kept the best wine for last
[as you did at the wedding]. You have kept it in the cupboard. But you bring it out now. The
strongest [wine], for the battle is strong. Thank You for bringing the best wine for this battle.
You are The Breath of Life. There is no hope besides You, Father... no life. We eat Your body
and drink Your blood. Thank You for Your work. Help us to see, understand, and adhere. Thank
You for giving understanding to Your Word this morning. Everyone will see Your hand upon the
wall. You will be precise and all shall see, all shall hear. Some will run under a rock. But ALL
will know it is You."

"The harvest will be overflowing. The fields are ripe. We enter into those who precede us. But
You have given us a new sharpened threshing instrument for this harvest. The wagons will be
full of wheat and silos will be overflowing with wheat. You will appoint us to the fields and
show us the ripe harvest."

The Admonishment:

"The spider that comes to distract will quickly be killed and My Word goes forward. Do not be
moved. Hold fast to what I Am saying. Distractions come in, but ABIDE! Do not look to the
right or to the left. Abide."

"We think we will go to church to hear the Lord. If we don't hear Him in our houses, we're in
trouble! Uzzah was placed to care for the ark. He was too familiar with it and took it casually.
God waits patiently. But it comes to a place where people are partying and they say, "We are
going to bring the ark to the city!" God shook the cart and Uzzah died. The party stopped. We're
going to be in fear and trembling. Death. Fear is the beginning of wisdom. What we think is
worship is a stench. Proceed in the fear of the Lord. Strike the shepherd and the sheep will
scatter. NO chasing names - chase God. He will remove it all together. NO WORSHIP OF
MAN! He is a jealous God.

The Scripture:

My husband, Jeff, then added that the Lord had just directed him to:
Proverbs 1:20 Wisdom calls aloud outside; She raises her voice in the open squares. 21 She cries
out in the chief concourses, At the openings of the gates in the city She speaks her words: 22
"How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? For scorners delight in their scorning,
And fools hate knowledge. 23 Turn at My rebuke; Surely I will pour out My spirit on you; I will
make My words known to you. 24 Because I have called and you refused, I have stretched out
My hand and no one regarded, 25 Because you disdained all my counsel, And would have none
of my rebuke, 26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes, 27
When your terror comes like a storm, And your destruction comes like a whirlwind, When
distress and anguish come upon you. 28 "Then they will call on Me, but I will not answer; They
will seek Me diligently, but they will not find Me. 29 Because they hated knowledge and did not
choose the fear of the Lord, 30 They would have none of My counsel And despised My every
rebuke. 31 Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled to the full with their
own fancies. 32 For the turning away of the simple will slay them, and the complacency of fools
will destroy them; 33 But whoever listens to Me will dwell safely, And will be secure, without
fear of evil."

May the peace of God that surpasses all understanding guard your heart and
mind in Christ Jesus. Amen.

In His service,
Judy




Christmas: A Time of Reflection
                                Christmas: A Time of Reflection
Peace has gained momentum in my soul concerning whether celebrating Christmas is truly the right thing to do with
all the pagan traditions attached to it. I felt that because of it's pagan roots we might be grieving the Holy Spirit by
taking part in it. I now see this season as a time we (Christians) have to openly talk about our Lord Jesus. Most
everyone is aware that Christmas is celebrating Christ's birth, so they are more open to the message of salvation
through Him. It is also a special time to get together with family. It is a time when we as Christians can speak of
the love we have for Jesus without as much scrutiny. I believe we must examine ourselves and make sure that we
are able to approach the throne with a clear conscience.

The Lord has been showing me that I must know in my heart who I serve and why, and not to get caught up in guilt
trips (it smells of the devil) and "working" for my salvation. It also smells of the religious spirit which tries to bind
us into becoming pious, egotistical, arrogant, legalistic, and self-righteous. When we read Matt chap 23 Jesus really
hits the "religious" where they lived, and still does today. He gave us all the solution in Matt 11:28-30. We have to
ask ourselves some questions about Christmas such as:

i Do we use the Christmas season as a chance to reveal God's tender mercy through His beloved Son Jesus to those
   around us, or do we reveal how impatient and self-centered we have become?

i Are we giving the Lord Jesus honor and glory in our hearts, thoughts and deeds?

i Is it the season to be thankful or greedy? Joyful and helpful or lonely and self-centered?

i Do we "celebrate" by acting according to His word, or do we get drunk and party?

i Is our "Jesus is the Reason for the Season" pin on our collar in clear view of everyone at the counter as we chew
    out the sales clerk for not having something in the size, color, style we want? Or are we going to be patient with
    them and treat them the way we would wish to be treated if placed in a similar situation?

i Do we spend time with our children telling them about the baby Jesus and who prophesied about His divine
    coming? Or do we tell endless stories about a fat, jolly man and then try desperately to cover the lie with more
    lies when the inevitable and endless questions arise? (Kids understand pretend..they don't understand their
    parents lying to them about a man with skills as powerful as God. Only God knows if they're naughty or nice..
    So let's tell them the truth...Santa's pretend!)

i Is the only time we use the name of Jesus when we speak of His immeasurable love, or only when we swear?

i Are we going to act like the two Christians who got into a fight over the last teaching tape on "LOVE", or are we
   going to make sacrifices of what we desire?

i Can we drive anywhere without screaming at people and getting really upset?

i Do we have our Jesus bumper sticker there for everyone to see as we cut off those trying to get into our lane of
   traffic?

i By our words, actions, deeds, and language do we turn people off or on to God ?

i If Jesus celebrated Christmas at your house would He enjoy Himself?

This holiday season is a wonderful chance to radiate the light inside of us that God gave us as believers. Let's not
waste the chance!

                                                      An exhortation from the Father:
                                                      Living Stones



                                                      Fellowship is important, or I would not
                                                      have set up My church the way I have. It
                                                      is the Living Stones which I have hewn
                                                      must come together to form the building.
                                                      I dwell in each of you to a determined
                                                      measure, but in and of yourselves I can
                                                      only fill you up so much. However, when
                                                      you all come together the filling in each
                                                      one of you is combined. This is the
                                                      fullness that you sense in the corporate
setting - the fullness of joy, the fullness of My Spirit. The fruits of My Spirit are all there and
the joy that comes from that will strengthen and empower you.



In the places [in My church] where the leaven of the Pharisees has overtaken, you will not
have this joy. The joy of those who walk in My Spirit will be full of glory - it is the joy
unspeakable. There are also places [in My church] full of the leaven of Herod. It is a
worldly yeast that has worked its way in and puffed up the whole congregation. Both the
leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod puff up and make [those who partake of it]
haughty. Pride is always the root! So beware of this when searching out a Body to be
connected and attached to.



My church will be built and it will be built to My specifications. If My specifications are not
followed exactly, then I will tear down that building and begin again. My foundation is
always the same - Jesus is the foundation. He is the Christ and the Only One worthy to
open the scrolls. To Him be given the glory or the building will crumble. The works of man
must all pass through His eyes of fire. What is left standing will remain.



The church will take on a new look in the coming days. It will not be people coming week in
and week out to do their "time" for God, but it will be Living Stones being fitted together by
the Hand of the Master Builder Himself. Did Jesus tell His disciples that He was going to
make a place?



Do you not know yet nor do you not see that you are the temple of the Living God? Have I
not placed My Spirit in you? Are not all My promises, "Yes" in Christ Jesus? Is it now
possible for you to say together in one voice, "Amen" to the glory of your Father?



Seek My promises for the Body of Christ and know that I have spoken, "Yes" to them all.
You who are called by My name say, "Amen!" Then you will see My glory coming into the
Living Stones and you will see a new and glorious church arise.



This is not for another time. This is for now.



                                          Please see:

              Hebrews 10:22-25; Psalms 127:1; John 14:2, 21, 23; John 15:4;

                     Mark 8:15; Luke 6:46-49; Luke 11:37-54; Luke 12:1-3;

                  Luke 13:20,21; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 2 Corinthians 1:20-22;

Victor or Victim




Jewels from Judy: Victor or Victim


Judy Bauman

August 26, 2008
An exhortation from the Father's heart to yours: Victor or Victim

Have you been called into My kingdom to be a victor or a victim? My glorious kingdom has
no place for victims. This is not to say that if you have suffered a crime, disease or accident
that you are not welcome in the Kingdom of God. What this means is that you will not be
able to enter My presence with a spirit of self-pity that relives the past.

I have made you more than a conqueror. You have been given the power and authority and
the grace to get through every situation life can throw at you. You are not a victim. Come
out of your place of depression and anxiety and come sit at My table of gladness. Come eat
My bread. There is more than enough to go around. Come eat at the table of life. I have
set before you a banquet of life and offer it all to you. Will you come? Will you eat at the
victor's table of life or will you wallow as a victim in the gutter?

       Deuteronomy 30:19b I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now
       choose life

Do not be a victim of yesterday. Be a victor of today! Rise up and take your place at the
table of My grace and let us eat together at the banquet of life.
