Morning Meds with Izzy Herriette & Co - Wednesday - May 25, 2011 -

Funny, funny, funny! Sometimes I just really have to laugh at myself.

Last evening, we were facing tornado warnings and my family had been pressed all day - scurrying hither and yon - and dinner time was approaching. Needless to say, as happens all too often these days; I was not prepared for the "moment"!

So in the middle of a phone conversation, while husband is at grocery store and I'm at home in a panic and feeling foolishly undone; the comment comes, "Well, look in the freezer downstairs and I think you already have some there."

I don't normally have anything in that extra freezer. We just don't eat that much, as my husband is away from home with work a majority of the time and I just don't really cook at all anymore.

I ran down to the storage room, opened the freezer door, and to my surprise I found that I had stocked it! I had also completely no memory of doing so, well, barely a foggy recollection of it.

Wow! Did that ever feel nice. I couldn't believe we actually had this wonderful "stash"; this abundant reserve! On hand!

This morning at precisely 3:00 a.m. while I was up praying and walking the floors to do so, which is customary for me, I heard this scripture in my spirit:

Matthew 6:19,20 - Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt and where thieves do not break through or steal.

Many translations use the word "store up".

At the same time that I heard the scriptures and in particular the words "store up," I also began to remember how great it felt to find that abundant storage of extra food in my freezer.

The LORD ministered to me about His kingdom within and how we can have this kind of overflow for our spirits! We don't have to worry about running out or coming up short on anything with Him!!

A few more scriptures come to mind:

Colossians 3:16 - Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the LORD.

Colossians 1:2 - ... continue in the faith, grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven, whereof I Paul am made a minister.

Colossians 2:6,7 - As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him; rooted and built up in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

Glory to His name! I thank Him for the ABUNDANCE that He has in store for you - TODAY!

Walk ye in it!!

Is He good?

(Image/Original/Izzy Herriette & Co)

I am so RAPTURED in THE LORD now, that I don't need a "rapture" to take place!

I am so IN THE LIGHT that I forget the DARKNESS; until/unless I am reminded by the LORD that it's still there!

I am so in LOVE with JESUS, THE HEAVENLY FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT that I forget there are MANY who don't even know what that is all about!

I am so BAPTIZED in my NEW LIFE IN CHRIST that I don't remember, oftentimes, that there is ANY OTHER LIFE!

I so LOVE the KINGDOM OF GOD that I forget there are MANY who HATE THAT KINGDOM!

ALL of my days are so swallowed IN HIM that I forget there are days, weeks, months and years!

My HEART is so CAPTIVATED by HIM that I can't find where mine ends and HIS BEGINS!

Once we've completed the "flip" we're about to make in this country ...

Ever heard of flip-flops? I wonder if the end of our "flip" will be followed by a "flop"?

Morning Meds with Izzy Herriette & Co/Ginger Renken - Saturday - MAY 7, 2011 -

This morning, working out the "wrinkles" in my duvet, trying to see to it that it's lying perfectly flat, I noticed how beautiful the fabric was in the spots that were fluffed up/wrinkled! Pictured above, is my duvet; the beautiful brocade, pale blue-gray.

I know by now that the LORD can speak whenever He chooses to and He can use anything He wants to convey His message. So, in the midst of noticing this phenomenal fact about my duvet, He speaks, "You do realize that this particular 'spread' was created not to lye down flat but to be raised up! You see, it doesn't 'shine,' or show its intended special qualities, until it is fluffed up; that's how it was created. Just like you - if you don't allow your talents, special gifts and abilities to operate in your life, freely - you won't shine with the luster you were created for either!"

Okay!! So, get the down in the duvet, NOW! I'm hearing YOU, LORD!

What are you squelching in your life that may be something HE wants you to be fully operating in? Maybe it's pulling the very 'luster' out of your days. Perhaps your life is dull and unfulfilling. We know that just is not God's way for our lives. He has a full, lush life in mind for us; one bursting forth with creativity, freshness and power. He is a glorious GOD, who has ordained that His glory be allowed to be seen, in and through our very lives. We are called to be ALIVE in HIM!

I pray that you will get before HIM today and ask HIM to reveal to you those special things that He has placed in YOU! Seek His guidance, by the Word and the Holy Spirit, for beginning to step into those places "anew"!

My blessings to you in your adventure.

Morning Meds with Izzy Herriette & Co - Friday - MAY 6. 2011 -

This morning, as I awakened to fellowship with Him once again; my thoughts were led in this direction:

There's a song He gave me many years ago that went like this ...

I never would have known true love
Never would have experienced harmony
If I hadn't fallen into the arms of JESUS

And oh, what a LOVE He has shown me, from the very beginning - the moment I met Him!

Lines from another of my 'old songs' have been very close to me these past few days ...

Jesus in your presence
Is where I want to be
Let me come and banquet with YOU there
I'd almost forgotten just how sweet it really is
Just to come into YOUR presence
Where fulness of JOY is

I want YOU
How I want YOU, LORD
And yet it seems I miss
The way to find more of YOU
Because of my busyness

How lovely, how safe, how sweet, how refreshing! What a Psalm 23 fulfillment comes ... by just "being in HIS PRESENCE"!

My prayer for you ... that you be found there ... walking those same paths with me ... with HIM! All of the richness that He has for you, be attained unto! Amen!

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!

Just a few moments ... in the witness of His love for you ... can elevate you to a new place!

Ephesians 2:6 - And hath raised us up together; and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

izzy Herriette & Co/Ginger Renken


Controversy: 1948 - New Century Dictionary - Turned against; dispute; turn; debate; contention; disputation concerning a matter of opinion.

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.
[imp. & p. p. Meditated ; p. pr. & vb. n. Meditating.]
In his law doth he meditate day and night.
- Ps. 1:1, 2.

To contemplate; to keep the mind fixed upon; to study.

To purpose; to intend; to design; to plan by revolving in the mind; as, to meditate a war.
I meditate to pass the remainder of life in a state of undisturbed repose.
- Washington.

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!
High places!

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

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!











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!
