Looking to Mother's Day, I just "haPPENED" to be working on my first "rugged country" apron for MOTHERS ... from Hanger #6617 ... By: Izzy Herriette & Co ... at this same time.
The LORD spoke these words to me this week: MOM ... Minds On Missions! Keep that in mind this weekend, when you remember your Mothers, Grandmothers and Great Grandmothers. Include yourself in that "slogan" today, won't you? We all need to have our minds on the mission at hand these days; especially “these days”!
Blessings and HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

Our present world is in controversy with itself. The hard pressed expression is that we are fast paced, busy and driven, therefore, leaving us with no time for meditation. At the same time, we see that meditation (every form thereof), is at the very forefront of focus - it is the posh-padded new pathway, haled in our society today for everyone to trample after. Example: our favorite coffee shops, our luxury retreats, weekend packages for the salvation of our wholeness, spas, message therapy, organics for the health of our mind, body and soul; movies, toys, entertainment and the list goes on, and on, and on ... and the greatest on the list is the "information age". It takes time and attention to digest all of that information out there - all new - and filtered down to us through all new channels! All requiring more, more and more of our time and attention.
Meditate: Webster's 1913 Dictionary
|To keep the mind in a state of contemplation; to dwell on anything in thought; to think seriously; to muse; to cogitate; to reflect.|
|To contemplate; to keep the mind fixed upon; to study.|
|To purpose; to intend; to design; to plan by revolving in the mind; |
The on-line Bible definitions for "meditate" are very interesting, indeed! I learned that all Old Testament references carried a rather negative connotation to their meaning:
mourn, mutter, roaring, sore, talk, study, imagine, moan, growl, utter, muse, devise, plot, complain, whisper, murmur
Oddly, the New Testament meaning, changes to a positive:
imagine, to care for, attend to carefully, practise, devise, contrive, take care, care about
Psalm 5: 1 - Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation.
Psalm 19: 14 - Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
Psalm 49: 3 - My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.
Psalm 104: 34 - My meditation of him shall be sweet; I will be glad in the Lord.
Psalm 119:97 - O how I love thy law! It is my meditation all the day.
Psalm 119: 99 - I have more understanding than all my teachers; for thy testimonies are my meditation.
In writing the book: Manifesto - Before The Cock Crows, (which I would say, is an enormous piece of counsel for profiting unto good, to anyone who takes it unto themselves to do it) I found the centrality of the message to be a deep cry to: Watch Over Your Minds - Meditations!
1 Peter 1: 13 - Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
Why is this so important, today?
Let me tell you that there are "wicked" minds out there these days - among family members, friends, neighbors, lawmakers, government officials, national leaders. There are devices being devised in a cunning and crafty way, to change the course of things, in this day. If you are not AWAKENED to this fact - I AM HERE TO AWAKEN YOU! The only reason I can do that, is because the Lord, always, by His Spirit, gives me the head's up!
The things that we're seeing in our world today, I was warned about years ago!
God (if you don't already know) is a man who EXPOSES DARKNESS! God is a man who CRACKS AND CREATES THE DAWNS! God, right now, KNOWS AND SEES ALL and is trying His best to SHAKE SOME OF US UP out of our places of blindness and ignorance!
At this very moment there are FREEDOMS AND LIBERTIES, bearing many different names, which are on the verge of being STOLEN CLEAN AWAY from us!
Do YOU have knowledge of these things? Could you NAME them?
If your answer is NO - you are in the RIGHT place! I CAN help you!
MEDITATIONS are at the BACKBONE of our LIBERTIES at risk right now!
The mind leads the man. So goes the man, so goes the nation; if the majority follows! Sometimes, as is the case at this time, it only takes a few in "influential positions" to change the course of an entire nation. That initiator seeks out, pursues and invests in those who will willingly be like minded, and help to further and to ultimately accomplish their causes.
People can be following a PATH that they see not - like sheep being led, deceptively, over a cliff - IN A FOG!
I believe that we are there, NOW!
There are things going on in high places that we know not of. We're not paying attention. We're not watching. We're not informed. We are out "eating, drinking and being merry". Meantime, there is a watchful, scheming, informed, educated, equipped, strategic, studied-out plotting, taking place over governments.
Do we know and/or understand that? Did we understand 9/11/01, here in the United States?
There were many prophetic people in the land, who knew that 9/11/01 was coming. Would people have heeded their warnings, had they been given?
I was one of them. I led my people, my flock at that time (by instruction and revelation of the Holy Spirit), into a prayer in the floor on 9/2/01. The Lord had spoken to me before service that morning that there was something going on in the unseen realm that we needed the "watch" of His Holy Spirit to be making us aware of!
Goodness clothed with innocence but stripped of wisdom - faces danger!
Matthew 10: 16 - Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves; be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
Serpents: (Gk) - (through the idea of sharpness of vision) - snake, serpent; with the ancients, the serpent was an emblem of cunning wisdom. The serpent who deceived Eve was regarded by the Jews as the devil.
If we desire goodness, we must also realize that there is an imperative to the "maintenance" of that goodness!
We are the benefactors, only, of that which we choose to meticulously be keepers over!
Genesis 2: 15 - And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
Someone has to govern. This is why we have governments. So, what do we choose to be governed by? What kind of lives do we desire to be able to live? Accordingly, we must then go a step further, to take the responsibility to rule unto that end - or choose those who will rule for us - hopefully, unto that end! Or we can sit back, be uninvolved, oblivious, irresponsible and foolish; choosing, thereby, to live under whatever is chosen for us by other activists!
There is, today, even what the Bible tells us in Ephesians 6: 18 - For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
I don't believe that a majority of people in the earth today, have clear vision of how much wickedness is literally lurking in governments today - seeking out places to set up their kingdoms and to begin to RULE!
I adjure you, by the Spirit of God, to be very, very careful about what you believe in this very day and hour!
The Lord spoke to me in the writing of the book and said, "Ginger, these are days of either the 'harry potter or the Holy Potter'!
Harry: Ravage as an army does. Army, host. To ravage (places) as in war; devastate; pillage, or despoil; also, to harass (persons) by repeated attacks, forced exactions, rapacious demands, etc.; in gen., to harass, trouble, torment, or worry; also, to carry off, as in a raid. To make harassing, incursions.
Potter: One who makes earthen pots or vessels.
Holy: Entitled to worship or profound religious reverence because of divine character or origin, or connection with God or divinity; in general, invested with a sacred character, hallowed, or held in profound reverence; also, specially recognized as or declared sacred by religious use or authority, or consecrated.
In other words, we will be formed by schools of thought and sealed therein. Our fate is in those thoughts! Our end. Or our beginning. All in a school of thought!
Will we choose, this day, to be formed into a Holy thing or a harrowing thing? We must begin to think!
Our nation - the United States of America - is heading towards a true RE-FORMATION!
I know that some people don't see or believe that ... some do. Those who do, are completely taken, by how close we actually are to it and by how suddenly it seems to have come upon us.
One year ago, the Lord gave me a prophetic song for the nations. In this song, the Lord referred to these days as "tumultuous days".
Just this past week, a reporter from Wall Street (a twenty-two year veteran), was on radio, and made this comment regarding the recent Wall Street Fall, " I never in my wildest imaginations, would have thought that I would see a day like this! These are "tumultuous days"! There's just no other way to say it. We are on the verge, one step away from Socialism! Does anyone see that?"
God doesn't "miss" when He speaks prophetically - if it's really Him speaking.
I know that I hear from Him! Therefore, I SPEAK!
WILL YOU HEAR WHAT GOD HAS TO SAY, BY WAY OF HIS MOUTHPIECE?
WE NEED TO BE "AWAKENED"!
THUS, THE CREATION OF THIS PARTICULAR SITE ...
A PLACE TO POST WHAT THINGS THE LORD HAS SAID IN THE PAST ...
To incite a MEDITATION UPON THOSE very THINGS ...
SEE HOW MANY OF THE WORDS SPOKEN, HAVE ALREADY COME TO PASS ...
THEN, TAKE PROPHETIC WORDS FOR THE FUTURE ...
BELIEVE THEM ...
AND BUILD WITH THEM ...
FOR SAFETY SAKE!
We are currently in trouble on many levels, in the world.
So, who will "govern" the situation at hand?
Only ones who have the mind for it!
Nehemiah 4: 6 - So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof; for the people had a mind to work.
I pray that God gives you a mind to work, today - for this day!
