Arms Wide Open… Rodna Epley

The Holy Spirit who is the Spirit of our Father in heaven, the Spirit of glory, given to those who are in Christ Jesus, woke me up a few moments ago singing to me the phrase “Arms Wide Open” in the tune of the song I’ve included here. If you want to read the lyrics to the song, it is something Papa God is saying to all who receive His Son Jesus—The Christ—the activated state of His own glory.

Right after the Holy Spirit said to me, “Arms wide open”, He said this prophetic word…

“This is going to be a true and powerful rite in the wave around the earth.”

The wave is a wave of His glory filling the earth prophesied even in the Old Covenant.

Awake, my glory!
Awake, lute and harp!
I will awaken the dawn.
– Psalm 57:8-11

For the earth will be filled
With the knowledge of the glory of the LORD,
As the waters cover the sea.
– Habakkuk 2:14

but truly, as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD–
-Numbers 14:21

Awake, O sleeper,
and arise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.
– Ephesians 5:14

Christ—the activated and radiating state of the Father’s glory—the light of the world. Christ in us; us in Christ. Restored to the Father now!

My response to the Spirit of glory was this, “Yes and amen Lord!… arms wide open for You!” Then I found the song and sang it to Him with arms wide open. I’m sharing it with you in case you want to practice being part of His glory wave that is being released even now in the earth. Hold nothing back! His glory is going to transform our lives and everything around us.

1) Christ gives us the power to lift our arms wide open in surrender and praise

2) Our Father in heaven pours out in us a giant creation-size wave of His glory that transforms every dark condition before us into light.

This is the pattern of us glory filling the earth: Without Christ we can do nothing. With Christ nothing is impossible. So the message is simple – our Father is about to transform every condition in our lives that is not good and make it good. We just lift our arms wide open to the fullest extent we are able in praise and thanks to the Father for restoring us to Himself through Jesus Christ. Trusting in Him and His glory to finish the work He started in us. Then His glory is released through us which transforms everything into light, into good, including us, our relationships, favor, healing, etc.

“Jesus said, ‘Now the Son of Man is glorified, and God is glorified in Him. If God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and glorify Him immediately.’” (John 13:31-32)

Arms wide open. When we glorify the Father, He glorifies us in Himself, in Christ, and He does it immediately.

Blessings to everyone receiving this word from His heart! ❤️

 

Gabriel: Jesus, Born of The Spirit

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Angels with tags , , , , , , on February 17, 2020 by paulthepoke

Luke 1:35 And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God…

spirit cloud

In the New Testament, the Greek word for “Spirit” is πνεῦμα/pneuma. Per Strong’s Concordance, pneuma is defined in this context as: the third person of the triune God, the Holy Spirit, coequal, co-eternal with the Father and the Son; sometimes referred to in a way which emphasizes his personality and character as the Holy Spirit; sometimes referred to in a way which emphasizes his work and power as the Spirit of Truth; never referred to as a depersonalized force.

The Spirit is set apart, sacred or Holy. ἅγιος/agios is the Greek term. This Spirit is different.

This is not Star Wars. The Spirit is not the Force…The Spirit is a person of the Trinity.

The angel Gabriel is telling Mary; the Spirit will come to you with purpose and result.

…and the power… the word translated as power is δύναμις/dunamis. Defined, the term means: miraculous power, might, or strength. In English, we get the word dynamite in our vocabulary. The word δύναμις/dunamis is also translated as miracle in other places in the New Testament.

Jesus was attributed with doing “miracles” or δύναμις/dunamis on many occasions.

Matthew 11:20 Then He began to denounce the cities in which most of His miracles were done, because they did not repent.

The point being made by Gabriel is the power of the Highest is supernatural dynamite.

~

…will overshadow you… The Greek word is ἐπισκιάζω/episkiazó. The idea is to cast a shadow or envelope. The term is only used 5 times in the New Testament. On several occasions, a cloud was noted to cast a shadow. One example is noted below.

Luke 9:34 As he was saying these things, a cloud came and overshadowed them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud.

The Spirit of the Highest will envelope Mary.

~

therefore the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God…

The child will be set apart, sacred and Holy, as is The Father, as is the Spirit.

Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit.

 

 

Wuhan Virus Update, February 15, 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Pestilence, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , on February 15, 2020 by paulthepoke

Luke 21:11b …and in various places famines and pestilences. -Jesus

February 15, 2020: China continues to try and manage the spread of the Wuhan Corona virus.

Food supplies are starting to become an issue. Grocery stores are running out of food. The government is shipping truck loads of food into Wuhan and other quarantined cities. Despite government orders, people are stocking up and preparing for the long hall. Costs of food are going up due to shortages.

Demographers and disease modelers are becoming increasingly suspicious of the data coming out of China.

The MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis (CGIDA) in London estimates the mortality rate for the Wuhan virus is about 1%. China is currently reporting 67,000+ infected with 1,527 deaths. Math suggests the number of infected should be close to 150,000 infected instead.

Professor Neil Ferguson, Director of The Abdul Latif Jameel Institute for Disease and Emergency Analytics (J-IDEA) made the following observations. The number of people infected is doubling approximately every 5 days. There are possibly 50,000 new infections every day in China. The virus is projected to grow over the next month (mid March) with a possible peak at that time locally in the Wuhan area. The peak for the remainder of China is expected to be another month later (mid April). For Professor Ferguson’s complete comments, see the YouTube link below.

 

Other disease modelers estimate the number of cases may ultimately range from 550,000 to 4,400,000. The link below discusses the issue with leading modelers from Los Alamos National Lab, Northeastern University, The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Laval University in Quebec, Canada.

Here is the latest from headlines from around the globe.

  • 67,000+ infected world wide
  • 1,527 deaths reported
  • 500 million people on lock down in China
  • Beijing imposes 14 day quarantine for people returning to the city
  • First case reported in Africa in Egypt
  • United States military is preparing for pandemic
  • Vietnam has closed its border with China

Blood Red Caspian Sea: Primorsky, Aktau, Kazakhstan, February 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , on February 13, 2020 by paulthepoke

Revelation 8:8-9 The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed.

Primorsky, Aktau, Kazakhstan: The beach has turned blood red.

There is not much coverage on this story, just a few pictures. Locals claim this is due to an algae. They say it is safe and normal…

For those who are new to the website, we are not in the Tribulation. This is not the fulfillment of Revelation 8. This is a beach on the Caspian Sea in Kazakhstan. This is yet another example of the phenomenon of a blood red body of water. This continues to happen on a small scale. Revelation 8 informs of 1/3 of the sea turning blood red, not a beach.

At any rate, let’s welcome Kazakhstan to the blood red body of water club!

It Shall Not Stand… Joshua of Ghana

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Isaiah, Joshua Ghana with tags , , on February 11, 2020 by paulthepoke

Joshua of Ghana @beholy404 on Twitter

Isaiah 7:7 Thus saith the Lord GOD, It shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass.

History is filled with accounts of despots – rulers who exercised absolute power over their subjects and terrorized those who crossed their path. They were deluded to think that they had the final word in every situation; but alas, they were often proven wrong. Something always happened that would remind them that they were finite and feeble humans. Only God has the final word. When He says, “It shall not stand…”, we can bank on it.

When Rezin king of Syria and Pekah king of Israel with their confederate forces planned to invade and destroy Jerusalem, there was great panic in Judah. This combined army was formidable enough to destroy entire Judah and make an end of the rule of David’s lineage. To Rezin and Pekah, it was a done deal, but God said, “It shall not stand.” This was His message to even an ungodly Ahaz, king of Judah, who was already greatly worried by the news of the invasion.

God still “brings the counsel of the heathen to naught” (Psalm 33:10). Powerful, wicked and crafty people may perfect their plot against His people, but rest assured that “it shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass.” It is vain for anyone or group to think that they can work against the will of God or work without His will and succeed (Lamentations 3:37).

The world in which we live is full of intrigues, oppression, wickedness and threats from Satan and his demonic and human agents. Very often, they target people who have a covenant relationship with God. If you are one of such blessed people and the enemy is posing a threat against you, let God’s words of assurance settle your nerves; “it shall not stand”. The details of how it will be done are not yours but God’s. Just take it to Him in prayer.

*THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:* The enemy has not the final word, God does.

Gabriel: Jesus Is Coming

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Angels, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 9, 2020 by paulthepoke

Luke 1:31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.

To add to Mary’s intense anxiousness and confusion, Mary is being told she is the chosen vessel for the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy. Mary is going to be the promised sign.

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

A couple of word studies on His name. In the Hebrew of Isaiah 7, Immanuel means: with us is God.

The New Testament Greek name is Ἰησοῦς/Iésous. The Greek name is translated from the Hebrew Yehoshua or Yeshua which means “Yahweh saves” or “Yahweh is salvation”.

In English, we call Him Jesus or Joshua.

Behold… The English translation of ἰδού/idou does not grab the intensity of the term in the Greek. This is an imperative verb. Look! See! Gabriel is attempting to further gain Mary’s attention.

…you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.

Gabriel is going to give Mary four points of information.

  • You are going to get pregnant.
  • You are going to give birth.
  • The child will be a boy.
  • Name Him Jesus.

Luke 1:32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to Him the throne of his father David,

Then Gabriel goes on to explain the character of her Promised Son.

He will be great or μέγας/megas. This Greek term is where we get the English prefix “mega”. For example, lottery players hope to win “mega” millions. Jesus will be great in the grandest sense.

will be called the Son of the Most High.

Gabriel is announcing Jesus is the Son of God or Most High or Highest. The point is, there is none above Him. He is Deity.

Definitions and translations provided by Strong’s Concordance.

~

And the Lord God will give to Him the throne of his father David

Gabriel connects the dots from Mary back to King David. The prophets foretold of a coming time when a ruler would come from the line of David. The boy to be named Jesus, who is about to be born, is the fulfillment of the promise God made to King David.

2 Samuel 7:12 When your days are fulfilled and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring after you, who shall come from your body, and I will establish His kingdom.

Mary herself knew she was of the line of David. Luke points this out in his documented genealogy of Jesus from Mary back to David. See Luke 3:23-31.

Jeremiah 23:5 Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and He shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.

~

Luke 1:33 and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.

Gabriel makes the point two times to Mary. When your earthly son assumes the role of King, it is His non stop. His kingdom will be without end.

The eternal nature of Christ’s kingdom is promised to King David in 2 Samuel 7 and multiple places in Psalms 45 and 89. The prophet Daniel in chapters 2, 4, 6 and 7 makes multiple, definitive and emphatic statements. His kingdom will never end.

Daniel 2:44 And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever…

The same promise Gabriel made to Mary over 2,000 years ago is true for us today. Jesus is coming. And when He comes back the second time, He will be firmly planted as King for eternity.

Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of His government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over His kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.
