Heaven’s Narrative

god speaksPsalm 91:7 A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.

I tweeted this verse out today on Twitter and tagged our @POTUS.  Then asked “Who will join me?”  I was praying for our President according to the word and let him know, and others.  Maybe he will never read it.  Maybe nobody will.   Except the Lord.

Psalm 68:11
The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.

Short but sweet today – Let’s find Heaven’s narrative.  What is GOD speaking?

 

 

 

Eternity’s narrative

jesus-embracing-alt-720x360Psalm 30:6 O Lord, You brought my soul up from the grave;
You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

Yesterday I wrote about the battle for the narrative.  What is going to be the story that is most talked about?   What is going to be the story that is told for future generations?  I didn’t know when I wrote it that Roseanne Barr would have her show cancelled due to quick fingers on Twitter about Valerie Jarret, George Soros and Chelsea Clinton.   I’m not going to defend her comments, nor am I going to say I defend her right to say them, BUT there is a battle for narrative.

ABC cancelled her show because of her comments, TO THEIR DETRIMENT.  They lost 2.5 million conservative viewers because of this.  YET, when Joy Behar made insulting comments about VP Mike Pence, and ultimately all Christians who hear from the Lord as having a sort of mental illness, there was silence.  Joy still has a show today.  When Wanda Sykes, actress, called President Trump a word I won’t write, there is no backlash.  Yet ABC will cancel Roseanne for her comments even though she had apologized for them immediately.  It was not Roseanne who put the rest of the cast and crew out of work.  It was ABC themselves.

Because of the narrative they want to control. From December’s word:  (A civil war has been prophesied for about a decade or more but the time is now. This is not a war between the right and the left. It is not a war between male and female. It is not a war between states or nations, but rather a war of Legitimate and Illegitimate authority.)

A war is being fought right now and many are not able to feel it or see it yet, but they will soon.  It is a battle to control what is being talked about and to silence those with opposing views.  Never before in my lifetime have I seen this battle rage like I have seen in the past few months, intensifying each week.  I myself have felt it.  Very few people read my blog posts.  It doesn’t matter anymore because I just have to write them.  It’s what I do.  I had thought maybe I don’t have anything interesting to say or maybe I’m not writing about what is relevant.

However, I was shadow-banned from Twitter.  That means that Twitter has used their algorithms to target what I stand for, what I retweet and write mostly about, to make sure that nearly nobody sees my posts or when I respond.  At first I thought it was my imagination until someone showed me by taking a snapshot of my post on their end: “Tweet unavailable” even though I saw it on my end.   This person and others did not see my posts – they saw that I posted but that my comments were unavailable.

Why me?  Did I write anything to offend?  Did I cuss or use offensive and sensitive material on my tweets?

No. My profile included hashtags that said #maga and #draintheswamp and #loveJesus.  For which of those do you think I might have been shadow-banned?  Not “love Jesus” – because it’s okay to love Jesus as long as you are not a threat to the narrative.  It is the maga (make america great again) and drain the swamp that got me targeted.  Eventually it will be because I love Jesus, but only because my loving Him will become clear to those who want to control the narrative that real Jesus lovers hate sin and want the swamp drained.   We can love love love all we want.  Just don’t expose and create a narrative with a different view point.   It is an attack on the First Amendment.

I don’t see this war as one that will go away but will increase in intensity.  Everyone will be challenged on their beliefs.  Remember, this is not a war between the right and the left.  It seems that way right now but the true war is between who controls the narrative.

My former husband died last week on May 21.  He spent his life mocking Christians and often God Himself.  I went to see him before he passed away and talked to him about Jesus.  He asked me to forgive him for everything.  How could I not?  He did talk with Jesus and told me that Jesus was waiting for him with open arms.   What could have been the narrative over this man’s life was changed. What could have ended with terrible sorrow, in a moment actually became a new chapter of victory.  It was no longer about all he did but that no matter how great a sinner he was, he was still able to be forgiven and was forgiven.

Nobody saw it happen.  Nobody witnessed the evidence in his life, but Eternity controlled the narrative and Eternity won.  All of Heaven is talking about how Jesus saved this man’s life.  That’s Eternity’s narrative.

What is your narrative? Is it Heaven’s?  Or is it this world’s?

Who controls your story?

The Battle for the Narrative (the sword is in their lips)

The Power of the Word in Your Mouth - The Glorious RealmsPsalm 59: 5 You, O Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel,
Awake to punish all the nations;
Do not be gracious to any who are treacherous in iniquity. Selah.
They return at evening, they howl like a dog,
And go around the city.
Behold, they belch forth with their mouth;
Swords are in their lips,
For, they say, “Who hears?”
But You, O Lord, laugh at them;
You scoff at all the
nations.

Rev 12:15 And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood.

Saul died by his own sword. From December word for 2018

It won’t take but a quick observation to see that the battle which rages right now is control for the narrative in the nations to get the people talking.  If you get enough people stirred up with a certain narrative, then it doesn’t matter what the Truth is, only what everyone is talking about.

While reading my selected psalms this morning, I felt to STOP at Psalm 59:7 “Swords are in THEIR LIPS!  They BELCH (hot air) with their mouth, but swords are in their LIPS!  Hot air is in their mouths but a dagger is at the edge of their mouths, positioned to use and thrusted forth by hot air.

The era of Saul is dead. (See December word).  Saul died by his own sword (1 Samuel 31).  The narrative (what they WANT you to believe and speak) is the sword.

You may or may not have heard this yet, but there is a new phrase, I’m not sure where it began but (a popular artist) made it popular; Dragon Energy.  He is on a mission right now to not be silenced or told what to speak or how to think by anyone.   I thought of this “Dragon Energy.” While it might be used as a weapon of defense against those who would like to silence conservative or Christian voices, it is still engaging in the battle of words.

The dragon in Revelation 12 has a flood coming out of its mouth.  This is a flood of words.  I looked up the word Flood in this context; potamos. It means torrent, river, flood of drinking water.

(Hmmmm.  I’m not here to do an exegesis on the Word of God, only to write what I hear Him saying THROUGH the Word and anything else He chooses to use – but I think I am hearing Him say that even a flood of drinking water, when it comes out of the mouth of the dragon, will drown, not give life.   The word potamos is used, not the word pino, which is the alternate form of the word which means water that refeshes). 

Psalm 149 says our high praises are in our mouths while the two-edged sword is in our hands. We are to be found doing God’s will and praising Him, acting on what God has told us and not reacting to the narrative around us.

Psalm 59:12 On account of the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips,
Let them even be caught in their pride,
And on account of curses and lies which they utter.

Out of the mouth of our enemy comes sin, and sin fuels the use of words. Out of the mouth of those with “dragon energy” comes a flood of words that doesn’t give life but fights back with carnality.  Out of the mouths of the righteous come praise, and words that refresh, give life, speak Truth and come from a heart of purity.

Saul died by his own sword, his own narrative.   What narrative do you want coming from your mouth and lips to go forth in this world?
