Division

About a month ago, I was speaking with one of my angels. I saw him walking in the distance from a field. He came closer with a scroll. He said, “I have the scroll, but this part needs to be unlocked.” Then, I saw another tiny scroll inside of the larger one, but it was locked. Now, the angel had the key he needed to unlock the scroll (I gave him a few days before); however, he needed my lead to unlock it. So, with my commission, he unlocked the tiny scroll inside. The scroll began to unroll. It rolled and rolled and rolled. I said, “It’s longer than the large scroll.”  Topucca the angel replied, “Yes longer, but secret knowledge is contained inside.”

So, what did the tiny scroll contain? 

“The old ways of receiving and knowing Jesus are in the past. We are in a new paradigm where who He is will be presented very differently. But it will be a whole and complete way and method. 

Jesus is so many things. People have been deeply distracted from this truth because of religion’s desire to suffocate the truth. The more Jesus is suppressed, the less people know the Father, His heart and the realm of Heaven in its fullness. Remember, Satan’s goal is to always oppose the Father, drawing people deeper into darkness and pain.

Most humans see themselves as flawed, broken and deeply wounded. And they are. Don’t get me wrong. Humanity is flawed, fractured and broken; however, and there’s more… There’s a deeper truth that draws humans in, which is that they can… You can be divided from that brokenness. God can separate the dark from the light. He sees his children in right standing through Jesus, and He wants to pull you into a deeper measure and fullness of His light and His love. 

Humans think of division as an evil thing because of the current culture. But there is a basic meaning to it. To split in two. To sever. To cut in half. It’s not an evil thing. Satan, in his corruption, has used division for evil purposes. Just like he has twisted light for his own gain.

Division is a word that isn’t used in the current believing culture. But it’s a word that I would have you use as an ecclesia, as a body of governing believers over the heavens and the earth. I would have you use the word divide.”

Fascinating right?! God is a divider. He’s in the business of division. He is in the business of splitting us from the evil, darkness and iniquity that dwells in us, through us and within our realm of life.

Just the image of it. Just the language itself. It’s powerful. Like Topucca said to me, “It’s very, very piercing. This word carries weight and it travels quickly throughout the ethosphere. It’s taps deeply on the foundational essence of humanity.”

Truly, it contains much more than my soul can comprehend. I’ve needed my human spirit to grasp this truth and cultivate a lifestyle of it over the past month. 

Now, you might be wondering, “How are you cultivating a lifestyle of division?” Well, I followed Holy Spirit’s lead when Topucca said this, “That’s all vulnerability is Amanda. It’s the expression of evil, darkness, pain and iniquity. Truth (no matter what it is) gains its power when darkness is brought out into the light. As soon as it’s spoken from a place of rawness, intimacy and vulnerability, the light captures the darkness and begins its process of division.”

So, division is where I’ve been resting. I’ve begun to rest on the truth that God is always in the business of dividing us from evil and darkness with light, and that light is Jesus. Jesus isn’t a man in a story book. He isn’t the hype that religions argue about. Instead, He is a very real and alive. He dwells in realms and dimensions we cannot see with our physical eyes, but must see and experience through the eyes of our activated human spirits. 

And He wanting to divide us from the darkness and pain we are currently experiencing, but we must become vulnerable enough to express it. We must not be afraid to share the deepest measure of our hearts, no matter what it might look like. Because, once we do… Once we’ve shared the darkness lurking around inside of us and the realm that surrounds us, then God has the opportunity to split us from the darkness with His light… Bringing more life, love and peace than we’ve ever experienced before. 🌱

The Standard

All week I’ve sat and pondered, “How can I become a more effective communicator of what Holy Spirit continues to reveal to me?” You see I want to encourage you to allow Holy Spirit to lead you down a path where the lame and manipulative layers of tradition and religion are stripped away, revealing a very real, very transparent and very powerful God. One that is no respecter of persons, but instead is very focused on communing with each and every single one of us on a moment-to-moment basis. 

And so, I want to ask, “Have you ever considered that maybe justice starts within each and every single one of us first and foremost?” 

And when I say justice, don’t look at the physical. Instead, challenge yourself to go deeper. Explore what you can’t see, but what governs the realms, dimensions, timelines and ages apart from this one.

Look at your spirit. Look at your heart. Look at your soul.

Now, while you’re looking, let me ask… Can each and every one of us confidently say that our trans-dimensional human spirits are activated and engaged, without being usurped by the soul? And, if so, are we operating from a place of wisdom and understanding… A place that doesn’t focus on engaging in divisive conversations, but where we can take our frustrations to the heavens to really learn and discern what’s happening? And, once we learn/discern, can we truly say we are spiritually strong and equipped enough to fight the unseen wars wagging in the spirit around us? 

And, if we are strong enough, can we confidently say, “I am growing with Holy Spirit every single day and allowing Him to bring life-giving solutions to my spirit, my heart and my soul so that those solutions may flow forward and produce healing and wholeness in my body and my world?” Can we say, “I see that God wants me to understand my world… That He wants me to come to Him so that He can heal me and free me of every sickness, disease and dark behavior… Even those brought down in my bloodline through generational iniquity?” Can we say (and this is a challenging one I’ve had to embrace), “Maybe the ‘god’ I hear from isn’t really God at all… Maybe it’s actually a religious spirit, masquerading itself as light and preventing me from seeing who Jesus truly is?” 

You see I believe true justice lies within the realm of the spirit first and foremost. Because, if we truly believe in Jesus, then we are to walk in the fullness of grace. And to walk in that fullness means we must align with the Kingdom of Heaven so that we may continuously stand before God and receive justice within our own lives.

We MUST come to a place where we walk free from iniquity, twistedness and perversion. Because if we cannot go before the Father and ask Him to deal with us internally, then how do we ever intend on truly governing earth? How do we ever intend on ruling & reigning with complete power, dominion & authority if we do not understand Heaven’s lingo? How do we ever intend on manifesting signs & wonders and miracles as we defeat the kingdom of darkness if we cannot even allow Jesus to administer His justice system in our own lives. 

So, you see, justice… It starts in us. It enters the gates of our hearts and changes the content of our internal culture. And then it sets a standard that encourages us to pursue true holiness. And that justice, it doesn’t ever relent. Instead, it continues to call us higher so that the only standard we live by is the Kingdom of God. 🌱 #cultivatelife

Year 32

Year 32… I’m looking at you.

But seriously… The other day I was zipping through Manhattan, watching the buildings pass me by and that’s when God began to remind me of a time… A time when I was 22 yrs old, on a plane, headed somewhere beachy.

As I looked out the plane window, I saw everything below me and I heard Him say, “Take it. Everything can be yours because I’ve given you power, authority and dominion over it. You just have to take it.”

That phrase… What He said to me 10 years ago… It struck me so hard on my subway ride the other day.

Actually, it struck me so hard that I could actually feel this new sense of confidence rise up inside of me. Almost like my human spirit was about to bust out of the seams of my body and take over the world in an effort to spread the most enormous amount of life and love to everyone I encounter. Almost like… Almost like I’d be insane to believe what He told me could ever be a fib.

And in that moment… In that moment I decided, “Okay God, all my cards are on the table again. You lead. I follow. And as always, I don’t know where we’re going, what we’re specifically doing or how we’re going to do it; however, as long as I’ve got You, Jesus and Holy Spirit with me, I know we can conquer everything.” 🌱 #cultivatelife

The Crown

Last night I found myself in the midst of deep internal conflict. Why? Well, I was wrestling with God’s will verses my will… this happens frequently.

Well, in the middle of expressing my internal struggle my sister just happened to be watching “The Crown” on Netflix. All of a sudden she said, “Shhhh! Listen to what she (the lead characters grandmother) is saying. I think it will help you.”

So I got quiet and listened. And here’s what she said:

“I have seen three great monarchies brought down through their failure to separate personal indulgences from duty. You must not allow yourself to make similar mistakes. And while you mourn your father, you must also mourn someone else. Elizabeth Mountbatten. For she has now been replaced with another person, Elizabeth Regina. The two Elizabeths will frequently be in conflict with one another. The fact is, the crown must win. It must always win.”

You see after I heard that statement, I just kind of sat back and breathed…. Because I understood, yet again, what I should do.

I believe when we come into the Kingdom of God we are asked to leave our old self at the door and place a crown of royalty upon our head. And because we wear this crown we must represent everything it stands for.

And I’m not going to lie, it’s a challenge to continue to allow the crown to win. Because as we do we let go of more of our selfishness, self-centeredness and human desire to live the life we want verses the life He wants for us.

And I get it, not everyone is going to surrender their entire self to the plans, purposes and desires of God… But I am. And I hope to continue to do it to such a level that others will eventually follow…. That they’ll follow me as I follow God into His Kingdom.
