Jesus Weeps His Babies are Lost February 6, 2013

Filed under: God's Creation — redeemingcarolyne @ 3:34 am

This is a powerful, powerful message that I was blessed to hear in church on Sunday.  I must admit it has an intensifying effect to HEAR it read.  Would you pray before you delve in and just let the Lord boldly speak to you?baby in hands

PROPHETIC EXPERIENCE with Crystal Kain-Ross
THIS PROPHETIC WORD WILL STUN YOU. Both because of how God’s heart is conveyed and because of its pinpoint, real-time accuracy in situations they are not even aware of. For instance–when you read it, keep in mind the timing of this New Birth of Freedom project. And keep in mind how Jason Hershey and team are leading 45 days of nightly worship at a church just a few blocks from the National Cathedral. Just keep this in mind.
The word by Crystal Kain-Ross was distributed by Aslan’s Place, a pioneering prophetic ministry founded by Paul Cox. Crystal is an intercessor for them.
Before we continue with the word, today close to a million people will participate in the “March for Life” rally in Washington DC, marking the 40th anniversary of Roe v Wade, their “exodus march” is a prophetic witness of God’s desire to shift us from a culture of death to a culture of life. Pray for them now! Below is the word.

PROPHETIC EXPERIENCE REGARDING ABORTION IN AMERICA, 1-22-2013–By Crystal Kain-Ross
Early this morning, before day break the Lord took me into the heights. In an instant I was shown the “state” (moral condition) of America. It is now in an extremely deplorable condition. I looked down and saw a tall border wall. There were serious breaches in the wall. I was told to observe what has transpired in the past 40 years. Then the Lord reversed the time-line process before my eyes. It was like watching a home movie, and then stopping the film, and rewinding it while watching it. I saw the wall being rebuilt in the places where there were breaches.

When the “timeline” stopped, we were at the point of January 22, 1973. The wall around America, and all her islands was intact. In places the Wall was not very tall, but there were no gaping breaches. Jesus explained, “This is the moral state of America 40 years ago….Our favor was on her, and Our protection solid.”
(Note: The term “Our” refers to the Trinity)

40 Years Ago Today
He looked intently at me and asked, “Do you know what happened today 40 years ago?” (meaning January 22, 1973). I answered, “No.” He said, “You know it by a Supreme Court decision called “Roe vs. Wade”. Then I remembered; that was the name of the decision legalizing abortion on demand in America. Then Jesus told me to “Look”, and I looked. He held out His hands towards me. As I looked, my eyes were supernaturally enabled to see microscopically. There, literally imprinted in the fabric of Jesus’ palms were millions upon millions of babies’ faces, with their first names below each picture.

I wondered, ‘Why aren’t there any last names?’ The answer was spoken aloud to me, ” They were not given last names, because their lives were taken from them before they were born.” “These are all My precious babies”, said Jesus.
I was reminded of the scripture, “I have engraved you on the PALMS of my hands; your WALLS are always before Me” (Isaiah 49:16).

(Note: the Living Translation of that verse states, ‘I have written your name(s) on the PALMS of My hands…always in My mind is a picture of Jerusalem’s WALLS in ruins.”)

Tears of the Intercessors
Then Jesus did something I did not expect. He pulled His hands to His face, and buried His face in His palms, and wept. I could barely stand to watch. It was gut wrenching.

His sobs were louder than thunder and as he sobbed, His tears fell thru the openings between His fingers, and spilled out over His cupped palms. An angel came up to me on my right side and held me up, for I was about to collapse from kindred sorrow. I turned and buried my head in the angel’s chest. How long we all cried, I don’t know.

It seemed like years. Then all was silent, and Jesus looked up, as did I. Our eyes were all red and swollen. Jesus held out His arms to me, and I ran to Him. He embraced me, and we both wept again, but not nearly as long.

Jesus pulled away from me, still holding me at arm’s length, and said to me, “Thank you for sharing My sorrows over the loss of My babies.”

He continued, “Even now, the tears of the intercessors and those who walk with Me are all that keep total collapse and annihilation from commencing to destroy America.”

National Cathedral Visitation
Then I was turned around and 3 large, regal angels, who were dressed in full warrior dress, came down from up higher. They landed on our level and came up to us.

Jesus introduced them, “These are fellow servants of Mine; they are your brothers on the heights. They are from the Highest Order of the Kings of Melchizedek.” At this introduction, all three bowed their heads slightly, and placed their right forearms in kindred salute over their chests. I did the same in greeting, greatly honoring in my heart their service. They have great humility married with great strength.

The Lord said, “There is now a destroying angel standing next to the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.” I looked down and saw the capitol area, and a short distance to the North, the Washington Cathedral.

“I asked, who is the destroying angel and why is he standing by the tall spire of the National Cathedral?”

The Lord answered, “This is the same angel, given orders by Us, generations ago, to punish David for taking a census.”

Bowl from Heaven
Then I looked up and saw several large angels coming down from above carrying a large bowl. It was half as big as a football field, and very tall. The underside was semi-transparent, and I could see into it. The color was gossamer, opalescent swirl with turquoise blue, interspersed with crimson strands…most beautiful.

I was told this was a bowl of the tears Jesus has wept over the past 40 years over His babies whose lives were taken in America. The angels were flying most reverently and carefully, so as to not spill one teardrop before the time to pour. They came over to the orifice, and they instructed us all to stand back. Then they began pouring and pouring. The tears looked like an ocean of flaming alive LOVETEARS. They were a torrent of love, overwhelming and their fragrance was mixed with many heavenly holy scents, of myrrh and frankincense, and stacte, onycha, most intensely holy.

From Cathedral to Capitol
When the tears hit the floor of the Cathedral, they flooded the entire sanctuary, and then the 3 angels opened the main doors. A great holy smoky vapor was emitted up, as the flood of tears flowed out and south. It flowed over the land on straight course to the Capitol, over 5 miles away to the southeast. When it came to the Capitol, it surrounded it, and filled up a transparent cylinder, which totally engulfed the Capitol and surrounding government buildings.

40 Days
Jesus said to the destroying angel (who still had his sword pointed towards the center of Washington, DC,) “’Stay your hand for forty days, for this is the period of grace the intercessors have purchased for America.”

I asked, “What will happen after the 40 days?” Jesus said, “That is in the hand of the intercessors and My prayer warriors Worldwide. The fate of America, and the terms of her demise, whether gradual or sudden, is in their hands.” Then we were taken back up to the heights.

Smoke from Cathedral–Death to Holiness
One more look down, and I saw black smoke coming up out of the top of the National Cathedral. “What is that?, I inquired. Jesus told me, “That is the sacrifice they (the leaders and dignitaries) have offered up to the heavens this morning. It is an abomination to Me.” (At this time we did not know that there was an a service held in the Cathedral for the inauguration.) “Their prayers are wickedness, laced with propriety. They cover evil with pomp and circumstance; thinking all is well because they are in power, but they are not in power.”

“Their legacy will not stand as one of honor, but of wickedness, debauchery and death to holiness.”

The Lord looked at Paul and said…”It has fallen to you to uphold America, and stand in the gap as her spiritual ambassador. “Call the people to a holy fast. They should forsake all her evil practices, and not partake in any of ‘Her’ idolatries or they shall share in her judgments.”

Glory from the East
Then I was back in my bedroom. I ran outside. The sun was just rising from the East.

I looked towards the sun. The leaves were bare, but the sun looked beautiful and full of glory. There was an obvious line of clouds, separating white clouds from blue sky.

The Lord said to me to go get my camera and take a few pictures. Jesus said, “This is a picture in the sky to you illustrating three things:
1) My glory will surely come from the East, and cover the Earth even as I promised;
2) There is a definite defining line between light and darkness in America and the line will get more pronounced in the coming years;
4) The trees are bare, but spring will come. Tell My people to prepare; for some of them will endure hardship and many shelves will be bare.” The final verse spoken to me was, “When you see these things begin to happen look up for your redemption draws nigh.” Luke 21:28

 

Snakes, you are joking right? January 6, 2013

Filed under: Family — redeemingcarolyne @ 4:20 am

At age 14 when my son Sam said he wanted a snake I was sure this was an interest that would pass WITHOUT actually getting a REAL snake!

So, I agree to take him to this animal expo http://allanimalexpo.com/ Sure we will simply LOOK at all the nice snakey snakies, it is not like I actually am going to buy him one!

God truly knows just what ya need and precisely when you need it.  Matthew 6:8 So do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.

Amazingly there was a “snake man” on the stage with a staff literally covered in snakes and some turtles all of which the children could touch, hold, & learn about.  Watching my 5 & almost 4 year old boys and my daughter fearlessly hold and handle these snakes made me stop and think.  They were actually enjoying themselves!  So after getting a little bit closer to the snakes and drilling the “snake man” with a million questions….I actually held ONE!  Maybe, just maybe they are not so bad after all.  I was completely reassured that the kinds of snakes we were looking at in no way could eat or harm my children!!!!!  It is not like the snakes will be mine or I would have to touch them….it was Sammy my Sam who diligently researched, studied, and learned ALL he could learn BEFORE asking for the snakes.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

This was an interest for him, a STRONG interest and he was willing to do the work needed.  Just because it wasn’t my interest or I didn’t like it does that mean I should just say NO, does it?  If this was encouraging him to learn I mean tenaciously learn wouldn’t I be denying him if I said  no! He wouldn’t have the chance to embrace and grow in something he truly is passionate about!  This kid is a snake encyclopedia, he knows all the colors, the morphs, the genetics, housing, feeding, breeding and much more I don’t even know about!

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Though I would not have chose or even lead my son down this path I am so grateful I chose to see and support his desires that were benefiting him and others well!

1 Thessalonians 5:11   Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.

Do you see an interest, passion, or even a burning desire in your child?  Now, I challenge you whether it is something YOU like or not, what are you doing about it?

 

12-12-12 A day worth celebrating! December 12, 2012

Filed under: Finding yourself in Christ,Uncategorized — redeemingcarolyne @ 4:16 am

12-12-12 it only happens once every century and this year it will commence my 40ith birthday!!!!!!  Ya gotta admit that is a pretty grand way to turn 40! The Lord will have blessed me with 40 years and I simply am in awe.  This year not only will the year be different but the celebration will be too. You see 39 birthdays have come and gone with little to no value, nor appreciation for the life I am given, or gratitude towards my Creator.  woman worshipping

We all have challenges, as we always will, to varying degrees to grow us, refine us, and mold us into His image.  Being His child is NEVER supposed to be easy!  In and through our trials we have the opportunity to reach out to Him, cling to Him, & overcome while giving God the glory.  Such was my desire seemingly so unattainable to reach. With efforts tried and failed time and time again resulted in succumbing  to the heinousness of my circumstances.  In this is NO glory, NO victory, and certainly NO overcoming.  Bit by bit, piece by piece a part of you starts to internally atrophy and slowly and painfully die.  Gone on long enough and without care and healing and in time you WILL be no more.life trials

Resurrection and redemption two powerful and illuminating words for me.  As Christ works powerfully in your life and literally resurrects you from the dead you want to shout it on high so ALL can see Him in His magnificent glory.  There once was a time when I would have climbed the highest mountain to release the most painful wail known to mankind.  My the difference of what flows out of the mouth from a changed heart.  Last year at this very time my circumstances were inflicting me to the point of death….I was to be no more or so I thought.  So while last year’s birthday party could have been a wake or visiting me arms bound in a white fitted shirt in a cozy comfy white padded room, this year we rejoice, we rejoice in Him.

But this day this December 12 this is a day to celebrate resurrection, resurrection only through Christ and I understand this word because I am His fully alive and fully resurrected.

Redemption the purchase back something that had been lost by payment of a ransom.  The synonym is to regain possession of , don’t you love that?  Christ regaining possession of me…of me, this sinner can be restored to God one and only one way, through the blood of Christ.  How bout redeeming as an adjective, serving to compensate for faults or deficiencies in quality.  It is this daily act that Christ fulfills in me as my sinful nature is always in battle with Him, He serves to compensate for me…compensate for me!  Are you in such wonder as I over that?  Redeeming Carolyne that is the name of this very blog created three years ago to put words to His redeeming of me each and everyday.redemption

Here’s the magnificence of His beauty. He meets you right where ever you are and doesn’t wait around for your circumstances to change He changes YOU!  Nothing that I “thought” should change in my life has.  The same circumstances which attempted to steal my very last breath are the same circumstances in which I SHOUT for victory!  My relationship with Christ isn’t about changing the people around me that I long to change but it is about He & I and nothing else.  From the deafening silence of death to the resounding brilliance of exultation in life…..a life in Christ.  The glory that I receive from an insatiable hunger for His word, through tenacious daily worship,can penetrate any darkness, and evil, any impossible….cause He is……I AM!

Oh will you celebrate with me?  Will you celebrate what He is doing in your life…….what He can do in your life?  Take up His cross, repent, pray for His gracious unearned forgiveness and follow Jesus…….it will be the journey of a lifetime!

Ephesians 2:8-10    For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;  not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.  For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.

Prayer for our Families November 6, 2012

Filed under: Family — redeemingcarolyne @ 4:11 am

Oh Lord, I want to lift up this Book(the Bible)……I lift up this Book to You!!!!!  As Mathew 7:24-27 states  “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock.  Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.  The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”

This amazing awe-inspiring Book of life is our foundation for the family!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Satan savagely seeks to ravage, inflict suffering, and oppress God’s most very good creation, the family.  Satan has been prevailing in this country, from the Industrial Revolution taking fathers out of their homes and away from their families, to the feminist movement taking mothers out of the home and away from their families.  This has left our children to be raised by themselves and the ever-enticing world so ready to devour them.

The FAMILY……..peel back the layers of most any societal devastation and you will find at the root the family…..or what is left of it.  When Satan can annihilate God’s most VERY GOOD creation how his evil prevails.  One will never fight victoriously without one’s armor, THE WORD. I urge you if you are NOT already reading scripture day and night not just to yourself but to your children; to take that dusty book off the shelf, pull it out of the closet, or simply pick it up from the coffee table.  As soon as your babes can hear begin to fill them with Life, the life of Christ which is everlasting.  May this Rock be the one your family is built upon, the Rock of Christ and His mighty word we all so desperately need.

Amen!

 

What are you hungry for? October 4, 2012

Filed under: The healthy life — redeemingcarolyne @ 3:07 am

Just wanted to share this limited FREE offer to watch the food documentary Hungry For Change.  There have been several worthy food movies over the past few years and this is one of them.  Do you feel the need to change but don’t truly understand why?  Maybe you are finally convicted to make changes but now sure how to start.  Then there is the always needed continual support and encouragement!

 

http://www.hungryforchange.tv/book-free-screening

The free offer is only good through October 6th!

Now having promoted this movie which I do believe has a lot of eye opening life applicable information in it, I want to remind you to be firmly rooted in the Truth His truth, that is everlasting.  We live in a sinfilled world yet have a sovereign God who cares about every last aspect of our lives.

Matthew 6:25-26  For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?  Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?

I encourage you not to fret about what your family will eat and how to change your families health but to plead with God to give you a Holy perspective on food and ask Him to lead the way towards a truly healthy life and body.  For He created the earth, people, food, & everything in it, He cares about what you consume. He cares about the state of your well being.  For if we are not peek performers then how much more could we……..be serving Christ!

Filed under: marriage — redeemingcarolyne @ 1:21 am

17 years ago today, while completely blinded to God’s creation of marriage, I entered into a lifelong union with Alfonso Jimenez Blanco.  It has been many powerful, challenging, and ever surprising  years that ultimately have lead me to the feet of Christ.  Through painstakingly walking in & out of the trenches I claim victory today…….I claim victory in Christ because this marriage belongs to Him!  I embrace celebrating 17 years of marriage.

Satan can keep his nasty little paws OFF my marriage, OFF my husband, & AWAY from my household!

This princess warrior has been training to fight for 39 years and I shall NOT cease until He takes me home.

Take back your marriage today

Claim victory in Christ

It belongs to Him whether you believe it or not
