BATTLE OF THE FRUITS: THE PLUMP PREGNANT PURPLE GRAPES TAKE OVER THE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS

purple grapes

Chili peppers are a very hot finely tapering pepper of special pungency.  They are delicious in many dishes.  One interesting fact is that red chili peppers are actually a fruit.  In botanical terms a fruit is a seed-bearing part of a plant that develops from the ovary of a flowering plant.

In one of my recent dreams I saw many RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS floating on top of the water in a pool.  They were very red in color and beautiful to the eye but as I looked closer they were hot, spicy, fiery, strong and sharp to people.

These RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS were placed in people’s lives by the enemy.  The enemy has brought on hot, spicy, fiery attacks in your lives that were so strong and sharp feeling.  Too hot to handle anymore.  Many people in my dream became afraid so they left the pool and began to hide in places.  Like in the game hide and seek.  No matter where they hide the enemy would always seek and find them.

Every time they would try to hide and get away from the hot, spicy, fiery, strong, sharp attacks the enemy wouldn’t let them get far.  He placed BROKEN GLASS all over the ground that went on for miles and miles in every direction.  They felt like prisoners.  They could never get far walking on this BROKEN GLASS as it sharply pierced their skin until the pain and bleeding were uncontrollable.

Then mighty waves started in the pool water.  God started to push the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS beneath the water.  Well, I love to garden and I can tell you if your plants get too much water they will drown and die.

These RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS did drown and die.  Then the waves pushed them out of the pool onto the concrete that was scorching hot from the sun.  As God shined his SUN(SON) on these water-logged RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, he started to dehydrate them.  They were dried up and desiccated that they started to decompose, decay and turn black.

The Lord said “enough is enough!”  He put an end to all the hot, spicy, fiery, strong, sharp attacks placed in your lives from the enemy.  All the BROKEN GLASS was cleaned up and what used to be RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS floating in the pool was now replaced with gorgeous plump PURPLE GRAPES.

People were still out hiding around the pool like in the game hide and seek but the Lord was seeking and finding them.  The Lord called out “Come Out, Come Out Wherever you are!”

The Lord said “It’s time to COME OUT of the places you have been hiding.  It’s time to COME OUT of being afraid.  COME OUT and see what I am birthing in you!  I am sending GREAT FRUITFULNESS Trust me even if things look opposite.”

These gorgeous plump PURPLE GRAPES that were floating on top of the water were very full and round and pregnant.  It was a significant time of birthing.  As these pregnant plump PURPLE GRAPES started to BURST they gave BIRTH and out of them flowed this NEW WINE.

NEW WINE comes from grapes that have been through a process of crushing.  NEW WINE is produced under pressure.  So if you have been feeling the pressures you are in a time of birthing.

“He will love you and bless you and increase your numbers.  He will bless the fruit of your womb, the crops of your land-your grain , new wine and olive oil-calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you.” Deuteronomy 7: 13(NIV)

There will be such freedom that will bring such joy.  Be obedient in birthing what the Lord is giving you as opposite as it may look or feel.  Don’t go to others as they won’t understand, go to the Lord.  Be prepared for the Lord as you birth this NEW WINE in your life.  Just like you get prepared when your pregnant and your baby is due.  Abide in him and allow him to reveal the increase of FRUITFULNESS as the NEW WINE BURSTS out in your life.

This is also a warning in my dream. I saw some people not all taking care of what was birthed and a few people let it go. They didn’t nurture, love or take care of it they let it go. So the Lord took it away from them and gave it to someone else who wanted it.

What the Lord is birthing in you, you now have responsibility in.  He wants us to mature take leadership and responsibility.  He wants us to take care, nurture and love what he is giving us.  If we don’t he will take it away and bless someone else with it who wants it.

So take responsibility with your NEW WINE.  It can’t be poured into old wine skin or it will burst.  The NEW WINE that the Lord has given you needs to be loved, nurtured and taken care of and placed in a NEW WINESKIN that he will give you.  Sometimes the new tastes and looks different its opposite of what you thought.  New ways don’t always mean bad ways especially if it’s from the Lord.  There is no more room for your old ways.  If the NEW WINE is placed in the old wineskin your old ways it will burst spill out and be destroyed and that’s not being responsible.

“And who would pour fresh, new wine into an old wineskin?  Eventually the wine will ferment and make the wineskin burst, losing everything-the wine is spilled and the wineskin ruined.  Instead, new wine is always poured into a new wineskin so that both are preserved.” Matthew 9:17(TPT)

So adore, love, believe in the NEW WINE that God is bursting forth in your life for it will bring such an increase of FRUITFULNESS!!  Bye-Bye RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS you won’t be missed!

“I am the sprouting vine and you’re my branches.  As  you live in union with me as your source, fruitfulness will stream from within you-but when you live separated from me you are powerless.” John 15:5(TPT)

HAPPY DAYS

happy day

In my dream I saw people at the dentist office with a broken tooth.  People were worried that their tooth was dead and that it would be painful and costly to fix it because they were listening to other people’s opinions.  They had such fear and anger thinking it would be like they had in the past.  The dentist came in and said to them don’t worry about your tooth it will cost you nothing and you won’t have any pain.  I am about to do the opposite of what you thought.  I will just smooth out your tooth.  Trust me!  So the people trusted him and followed him to his room and things were better and smoothed out.  After that the dentist invited everyone to a big party.  The song Happy Days was playing and the dentist wanted people to enjoy themselves and laugh and feel good.

Broken teeth in my dream symbolized anguish, mourning, and bitterness.  Some of you are looking at something that seems dead telling God you don’t know how he will fix it.  You can’t get into the place of worry and old seasons.

These old seasons you may have felt anguish, mourning and bitterness.  Keep it in the past.  Stop listening to other people’s opinions and start listening to God’s opinion.  The dentist in my dream was the Lord.  He will smooth things out just like he smoothed the tooth.  He is doing the opposite of what you thought.  You can’t afford to entertain the things of the past.  The Lord said it will cost you nothing but to trust him.

“Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions.  With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make.” Proverbs 3:5(TPT)

He is moving many of us in different opposite directions from what we thought.  We may feel like they will be dead places because we don’t think the way the Lord thinks.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9(NIV)

But he has such a plan for our unexpected paths.  We have to follow him and trust what he is doing even if we don’t understand it.  We need to be obedient.

Some of the paths he is leading us to seem out in left field or wrong, totally the opposite of what we thought.  Like the post I wrote a few weeks ago opposites attract.  But as we follow him in obedience to these unexpected places he will bring breakthrough and blessings.  Follow his rhythm, his pace, his speed, and his sound tick-tock tick-tock snap crackle pop!

“My feet have closely followed his steps; I have kept his way without turning aside.” Job 23:11

Many are hesitant to take this unexpected path because it’s so opposite and they think it will be another painful dying process just like in my dream.  They thought their tooth would be painful and die.  Don’t think to the past things and go backwards.  You are in the right place and moving forward.

Seeing breakthrough and blessings will feel like a fun party.  He is inviting us to come and then enjoy ourselves.  I heard the song Happy Days from the old TV show from the 1970’s-1980’s which I haven’t heard in forever.  He will be bringing Happy Days to you.  Not all of the lyrics stood out to me but the ones that did are… He wants are days to be Happy.  This day is ours, oh please be mine.  Hello sunshine, goodbye rain.  These Happy Days are yours and mine.  Happy and free share them with me.

“Give me revelation about the meaning of your ways so I can enjoy the reward of following them fully.  Give me an understanding heart so that I can passionately know and obey your truth.  Guide me into the paths that please you, for I take delight in all that you say.  Cause my heart to bow before your words of wisdom and not to the wealth of this world.  Help me turn my eyes away from illusions so that I pursue only that which is true; drench my soul with life as I walk in your paths.  Reassure me of your promises, for I am your beloved, your servant who bows before you.  Defend me from the criticism I face for keeping your beautiful words.  See how I long with cravings for more of your ways?  Let your righteousness revive my spirit!” Psalm 119:33-40(TPT)

Love and Blessings,

Debbie

 

FOLLOW THE SOUND TICK- TOCK TICK-TOCK SNAP CRACKLE POP

architecture-business-city-358612

It’s been a little while since I wrote my last post.  I was on a fun-filled relaxing vacation with my family in Florida and what a great time we had.  The Lord shared some things with me on my vacation that I will share with you.

At certain times the Lord wants you to rest and relax.  When we allow ourselves to rest and relax we can hear him more clearly.  That doesn’t mean we need to be on vacation to relax, it just means to let go of the stresses of the day and soak with God for a bit.

“My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14

The Lord showed me in my dream that he wants us to FOLLOW HIS SOUND.  I heard a rhythm that was coming from the Lord.  He was wanting people to follow his sound.  I heard TICK-TOCK TICK-TOCK SNAP CRACKLE POP!!  I know what your thinking rice krispie cereal LOL!! I love that cereal, but that’s not what is was.  I heard the sound of a clock TICK-TOCK TICK-TOCK then the SNAP of his finger flowed into a CRACKLING noise like a wood burning fire then POP!! The POP was like hearing a champagne cork burst off.

It was a strong repeated pattern playing over and over.  It was God’s rhythm and it was very pleasing to the ear.  He wants us to keep following his sound.  This sound will lead you.  The Lord said “Listen and follow my sound and move in the space that I am leading you.”

As we take the time to relax he will strengthen you and heal you.  He is building you up for what he is leading you in to next.  We need to follow God’s sound and God’s speed.  TICK-TOCK TICK-TOCK SNAP CRACKLE POP!

Whatever we are walking through God is doing something.  Don’t be nervous or fearful of the change.  He wants to place you into certain situations and certain places and he wants you to spend some time there.  These areas are unexpected and may feel like it’s not God, but it is God.

At times in my dream I saw people being afraid to walk into these new areas and I saw the Lord giving them a push.  The way he gave a push was interesting.  I saw beautiful white wedding dresses on a hanger by each person.  When the person stopped following the sound TICK-TOCK TICK-TOCK SNAP CRACKLE POP this wedding dress would push the person forward.  It kept pushing the person to keep moving them forward where God wanted them to be.

They didn’t feel afraid anymore because this wedding dress was with them pushing them along.  This wedding dress was a covenant and deep relationship that we have with God.  As it moves us its a covering and protection that moves with God’s authority with his speed and at his pace.

As we continue to follow God’s sound and speed along the way we will gain wisdom.  As you follow his sound TICK-TOCK TICK-TOCK SNAP CRACKLE POP he will be preparing you and working in you to heal and strengthen you.  You will gain knowledge, understanding and good judgement.

“Those who find true wisdom obtain the tools for understanding, the proper way to live, for they will have a fountain of blessing pouring into their lives.  To gain the riches of wisdom is far greater than gaining the wealth of the world.” Proverbs 3:13

As people kept following God’s sound TICK-TOCK TICK-TOCK SNAP CRACKLE POP the timing was perfect! The TICK-TOCK TICK-TOCK was his perfect timing.  The SNAP CRACKLE and POP began to get louder and louder.  Everyone was where God wanted them to be.

I then saw a pile of sizzling bacon that was SNAP CRACKLE and POPPING.  The Lord placed this pile of SNAP CRACKLE POPPING bacon into people’s hands and said smell.  They placed their noses right on the bacon and their senses were aroused.  They were stirred up and awakened.  People gained discernment.

This bacon was given to bring home with them.  “BRING HOME THE BACON”  If you bring home the bacon you will achieve what you needed to achieve. You will succeed and win.  You will be very successful and very blessed.

“God himself will fill you with more.  Blessings upon blessings will be heaped upon you and upon your children from the maker of Heaven and Earth, the very God who made you!” Psalm 115:14-15

This is a great move of the Spirit.  Follow his sound TICK-TOCK TICK-TOCK SNAP CRACKLE POP!  Follow his speed at his pace.  If you are afraid thinking you’re not where God wants you to be he will give you a little push.  He wants to lead you to increase so you can smell and bring home the bacon!

“Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions.  With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make.  Become intimate with him in whatever you do, and he will lead you wherever you go.” Proverbs 3:5-6

“For I know the plans I have for you, “declares the Lord,” plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

A SEASON OF POPSICLES TRUST HIM AS OPPOSITES ATTRACT

 

fruit popsicle

It’s time to have firm belief, faith and complete TRUST with what God is doing.  Its going to be a completely different context.  The Lord asked “Will you be ready if I show up in a way you don’t expect?”

What looks like the opposite is where he is leading you.  As you TRUST him the opposite will attract you.  He has a plan even if it doesn’t look right to you or other people.  It looks right to him.  It’s not what you thought and it may not make sense to you.

Because things will look opposite to what you thought, the enemy is going to try to make you think you’re in the wrong direction.  As things will look different and maybe a little uncomfortable I see many people thinking and saying “Not Again!”  They are automatically thinking that the opposite they see happening around them is going to be another battle from the enemy.  That is not true!  You are right where God wants you to be.  He wants you to BELIEVE and TRUST what he is doing.  When you TRUST him the OPPOSITES will ATTRACT YOU.

“Lord Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.” Psalm 84:12(NIV)

He will use you and direct you from the total opposite of what you thought.  Don’t worry if you don’t understand it or you think it’s not right and don’t listen to other people’s opinions.  Our thoughts are not like his thoughts.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways.” Isaiah 55:8(NIV)

In my dream I saw some people getting hot and frustrated with the opposite they were seeing, so the Lord asked them “DO you trust me” and as they said yes he handed them POPSICLES.

These POPSICLES were given from the Lord to cool them down and refresh them.  Just like on hot days we eat POPSICLES to cool us down and refresh us.  So many flavors to choose from.  Cherry, grape, orange, lemon-lime, pineapple, raspberry, strawberry and watermelon!  The aromas from these fruity POPSICLES brought happiness and comfort.  They freshened, strengthened, revitalized and rejuvenated.  These POPSICLES put them in a good mood and they became attracted to the opposite happening.

In this SEASON OF POPSICLES things are starting to break open.  It will be a season of a fresh surge.  It will be a powerful forward and upward movement that will renew you..

After they ate these POPSICLES their tongue turned the color of the POPSICLE.  These fruity POPSICLES stimulated their tongue.  The tongue has incredible power.  We can use it to bring blessings and life or curses and death.  As their tongues were stimulated in color they were speaking the word of God that came to life.  These fruity flavors on their tongues were turning into fruity words.

“Fill your thoughts with my words until they penetrate deep into your spirit.  Then, as you unwrap my words, they will impart true life and radiant health into the very care of your being.” Proverbs 4:21-22(TPT)

They were replenished and recharged.  The Lord used them in an opposite way they had  thought, but it was in his special way.  As these colorful tongues spoke the word of God with life, blessings, color and fruit over their lives it was also being used to speak to others in that way.  Words of goodness and love were rolling off their tongues and lips into these people’s lives and it was helping many.

“Sharing words of wisdom is satisfying to your inner being.  It encourages you to know that you’ve changed someone else’s life.” Proverbs 18:20(TPT)

There is a DEEP REFRESHMENT being released.  The refreshment was touching DEEP levels of the heart.  The Lord will drench you in his LOVE.  This refreshment will strengthen and awaken you to a whole new level.  This DEEP REFRESHMENT will bring DEEP INSIGHT for the shift that is taking place.  Many had been at a place of DEEP EXHAUSTION that will turn to a DEEP HEALING and DEEP REFRESHMENT.

There are many weary ones that are nervous, anxious and fearful about what is coming next.  They are questioning whether they are moving in the right direction because it looks so opposite.  God will show you and confirm to you in the most beautiful special way that you are moving in the right direction.  His direction!

The Lord whispered “You are about to see the reward of your trust and faithfulness to me.”  Fear is going to break and a whole new way of trusting will be found in him.  Trust him as you see the OPPOSITE ATTRACT because in this trusting you will enter a season of DEEP REFRESHMENT.  What flavor POPSICLE will you choose?

“Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions.  With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make.  Become intimate with him in whatever you do, and he will lead you wherever you go.  Don’t think for a moment that you know it all, for wisdom comes when you adore him with undivided devotion and avoid everything that’s wrong.  Then you will find the healing refreshment your body and spirit long for.” Proverbs 3:5-8(TPT)
