Divine confidence, Divine power, God's strength, Holy Spirit's guidance, Living in Jesus, overcomer in Jesus, overcoming, Responsive Abba
Mystery of the Gospel~Christ within us. He feels what we feel, what affects us, affects Him. You live deeply within Jesus, and are miraculously seeing that every moment in your life is intently orchestrated by Him, regardless of the wrong free-will choices being made all around you, or the ones you are making, which He miraculously instructs us through. He is rock solidly building His faithfulness towards us, within us, giving us Divine knowledge and confidence in knowing that as we turn to Him for all things, it gives Him an opportunity to intimately show us how He is in all of the tiny details of our lives. We privately converse with Him, and His faithfulness in responding to us is exactly how we need, not in how we once expected Him to. Miraculous spiritual changes have taken place within, we are becoming even more sensitive to Him, and He is faithful to respond at the exact moment needed so we will recognize it is Him. He is greater than all things, and therefore His ways are limitless and above all ways. Praise Jesus, actively living in Jesus is like a two-edged sword, slaying the wrong with boldness, forgiving, but not condoning, which then provides the healing, and comfort we all deeply need because we see Jesus. It is the only way to live above the circumstances, situations, and chaos, and at the same time instill His Divine healing deeply needed in our lives, as well as others. Abba’s unconditional love raises us to live above the circumstances, situations, and all chaos…a true Overcomer, all because of Him! Praise Jesus!
Sometimes it feels like I have a long way to go before I will get to the closeness with Christ that you are talking about. I want that relationship and I know logically in my head that it is true, but I haven’t found the release of my burdens, or at least as fast as I turn them over more are being laid on me until it feels I will never be free. I live in a place where I struggle with being good enough for Him, or I have to be better to be granted divine peace. I am a devoted Christian, and I have seen how I have changed over the years, but I feel like I still have a long ways to go before I will have what you write about.

I went through exactly what you are talking about, Tammy. Praise Jesus! You are going through a very, very important season right now! Stay-the-course, as fast as more burdens come, say in your mind, “Thank you Jesus, I release it to you.” Then each time you are reminded of it, thank Him for taking care of it, and that it is over, and you are moving on correctly now, in Him. It sounds like you are going through the stage (season) of God intimately needing to show you that He is greater than what you think, feel, or whatever your emotions are. He is rising you above all of that so He can instill a deeper understanding in Him, so you will freely choose to trust Him, over what your mind, emotions, and feelings are saying! Jesus sets you free, period. From the first of asking for forgiveness, you are immediately cleansed, nothing else can do that. Not our feelings, nor emotions, so regardless of what you feel, tell Him intimately that, “Athough I cannot see it, nor “feel” it, I know it is there. I will only trust you.” He is trying to show you in a greater way that His Holy Word is greater than anything we think, feel, or go through, and He is building a faithfulness in you for Him. That is what came to my mind when I read the first part of your note (it also lines up with the #9 book in the Protection series) . God is instilling within you His Divine faithfulness, as you actively acknowledge Jesus, bringing Him into every aspect of your life. To think that you aren’t “good” enough is an attack from the enemy, trying to get your mind to minimize the Sacrificial Blood of the Lamb, and that is so dangerous to fall for, but you are secure in the Holy Spirit. You must remind your mind, and at the same time rely only on God’s Holy Word as the Holy Spirit leads you to. Jesus’ Sacrificial Blood fully coats you, and that is the only thing that can make you completely righteous (Right standing before God). Use every opportunity, when you struggle with that, to use your free-will choice to choose God’s Words over your own. When God sees you, He sees pure beauty, because in your heart you want Him and are willing to go through what you must, as you are right now, through this deep cleansing process, like wheat on a threshing floor, all for Him! Praise Jesus, our identities are not based on our little struggles, because they are all little in the face of our Abba, but they are solely based in Him, by His grace. Praise Jesus, the Holy Spirit has shown you the changes that have happened in your life from years before, that is Him “talking” to you, encouraging you that although nothing seems to be changing right now, they are, and you are to continue to stay-the course! Praise Jesus, Hallelujah! Just to let you know, if you are a reader of the Protection Series books, each book represents the painful spiritual seasons I was intimately brought through in order of the seasons and process. All of the spiritual experiences, and revelations, they experienced, I had experienced and was intimately brought through. Even the characters that spoke with wisdom and authority, those were spiritual experiences I also went through, and was able to put into those books to help those characters more quickly come through them victoriously, than how long it took me to. Which for me, it was over twelve majorly spiritual (thoughts and mind) and physical rough years, but years that when I look back were so precious, and continue to be! Only very few people, in my personal life, know this, and I do feel led of the Lord to reveal this to you for encouragement. My “hidden” physical testimonies are actually fully in two of the books. I currently live like Brianna, in #5, with severe environmental allergies, and strong allergies to now 24 drug families (and I was miraculously healed from being allergic to the medical environment with having to use the oxygen tank), every part of her physical problems and healings was my experiences. I have to stay away from all matters of infections, and the Lord leads me in and out of “hibernation,” and also people I come into contact with. I also physically live like #8, Priscilla, with multiple ankle, and knee surgeries causing back problems (and every part of her physical problems is me, as well as the healings,) My son, was Tyson in Book #7, with croup & tracheitis, only he battled for longer and was older when the Lord led us to discover the problem of allergies, and all his mom went through with medical debt, etc, and all I learned from it, that is us as well, and we are still looking to Jesus for His complete healing to manifest successfully through the debt. Because while I went through major physical battles, he did as well. And what amazes me is that these books are only ever able to be written through the Holy Spirit, not me, and He controls all aspects of them, I learn even more as I write them. He even holds me back, and then in the physical world, I will experience things that parallel and teach me the same spiritual lessons talked of in these books, intimately giving me Divine confidence to write about them, which I need! I also go through spiritual battles every time one is released, and I am actually dealing with one that is strong right now for this latest one. The enemy doesn’t want us to be able to truly see Jesus, but Praise the Lord, God is greater, and I learn even more revelations through the Holy Spirit that leads me to a place with more authority, in Him, where I will be able to write in the new series, the Indwelling Divine Line series. And I must say, before I close, that your last sentences are amazing to me, because just last week I spoke to the Lord wondering why He was leading these books to express more of having already reached that level in deeply dwelling, spoken about in scripture John 14:23, and no longer on the process, and He impressed upon me, “Only I can see them privately through the process in how they individually, uniquely need to be brought through. I am using you to continue encouraging them to stay-the-course through their process, clearly seeing in their minds, the limitless possibilities and vital importance of actively fulfilling John 14:23 in their lives. An overcomer’s life.” Tammy, when you hurt mentally, physically, and are upset, overwhelmed, or anything else like that, that becomes a beautiful time, because you are learning when you are spiritually hungry, and it causes you to go right to Jesus, giving Him all your burdens. At that time, rest your mind, by focusing all on Him, allow Him to hold you as He wants to, and tell Him you are waiting for Him to guide you further, and for Him to heal the thoughts you won’t accept, and because you know you are healed and well, regardless of what your memories, or what the enemy is trying to instill in your mind, and what your inner voice is wrongly saying, you are fully healed. Your mind, as well as the enemy, is trying to tell you it takes more, but it doesn’t. Jesus clearly hears you, you have so much confirmation of that in your life, and you know you are covered completely in His Sacrificial Blood as you ask for forgiveness and are cleansed, and that is all you need. Lean on Him each time this happens, which can be frequent, and He wants that, He wants to build within you, Him, as your Sole-Provider. Healing herbs flow from Him, so allow Him to pour them over you. Each opportunity like that strengthens your bond, and helps the Holy Spirit to deeply cleanse even more! xoxo Feel free to message me anytime! Praise the Lord~He is showing you the depth of what it means to be your Sole-Provider! Stay-the-Course, and may the Lord release His powerful love for you, alone, from deep within you, cleansing you of the need to “see” or “know” in your mind, because your Abba wants to show you He is greater than all that, and the spiritual world is so much greater than the physical, limited world! Andie xoxo ;)
I never thought of Jesus needing to take me through my own experience as a reason for you not to write of the step by step process. It really does make sense! Your books and blogs have been supplemental to pointing me to the direction of where I want to go, and I eagerly await each one. My poor husband and I are both Christian school principals and end up with a lot of weighty issues in sharing suggestions with our parents and students on the importance of leaning on God. As my husband is dealing with at least 2 auto immune diseases that we are in the process of defining (a liver disease that we caught in time and the possibility of Lupus or some other one as well) I had him read the first 5 of your books as well. Too much romance for him, but we both agree on the built in sermons. I have even shared parts of several of them with my Bible study class on weeks that I teach.
If I was looking at your books for a key issue for my growth, I think I would have a big part of book one and self-discipline. Other key ideas have been fear being an actual evil spirit, dwelling behind the shield of God (have you ever spent much time learning what a shield bearer did in history?), and to stop looking to others for my validation, protection, healing, but instead to learn to rest in Jesus.
When I typed my email last night, I was feeling low. My husband has just accepted a job promotion in a new province (I’m an American living in Canada) and we are to move this summer. There is no job for me in the same town. We have taught together for 20 years and through 4 countries and it is scary to move without the assurance of the desperately needed 2nd income. I am so like the Israelites, God performed miracle after miracle and each time they doubted another miracle would come (he provided my current job for me to start a new school 1 week before school began 3 years ago). Our new superintendent emailed me last night with a job opportunity, 600 miles away from my husband. So many emotions! Leaving my husband and only seeing him on vacations for financial sake, or rejecting and losing out on a job for my husband’s sake? I prayed and told God that I needed his direct answer that night and I didn’t want to have to go with my gut feelings, but only by his will. I was actually surprised when a Bible verse interrupted my dream! I remember saying “Thank you, God. As you will” and sleeping on. When I woke this morning, my first thought was I had better check that verse and make sure it said what was said in my dream because God won’t mess up on a quote from the Bible, but I might in a dream. It was accurate. Genesis 2:18. His will is for me to remain with my husband and not take the job far away. I’m actually so relieved He said that! Now I am self-disciplining myself to believe He has my future secure and I will endeavor to wait patiently for what He has in store for me. At the moment, it may only be substitute teaching. Thanks for listening and responding so personally. It does mean a lot to me.

Hi Tammy! Praise Jesus, can’t wait to hear how it all works out for you, especially when you get confirmation and openly praise Him when you reach that victory of jobs and income, knowing only He clearly brought you and your husband there! The spirit of fear doesn’t dwell behind God’s shield, but it attacks, and He allows it to teach us, and instruct us. If we focus on the fear, we are actually stepping away from God’s shield. Recognizing the presence of that spirit, for me, answered a prayer that I had prayed for, I wanted to know the separation of the body and spirit, now I find that I was actually praying God’s will for my life, and the Holy Spirit had led me to pray for that. So during a few of my many surgeries, He showed me it. Recognizing the spirit of fear clearly shows us that we need to self-discipline ourselves to not accept it, and recognizing that our bodies and spirits are different, and regardless of what our bodies go through, our spirits can remain in perfect peace. I went through hard years and writing Book #4, showed me why He had taught me on dealing with and learning about the spirit of fear. In fact last August, I was stung by a bee (I am deathly allergic) it was a really close call, and took over 3 epi-pens, including very serious major amounts of other medications in the trauma unit, while even the doctor was nervously shaking (I didn’t realize why the Lord was making me aware of all of these details, almost detached from it all and actively dwelling with Him until I was stable, and as I sat there in the hospital bed, continuing to dwell in perfect peace while the nurse reiterated to my husband how severely and deathly allergic I am, the Holy Spirit immediately guided my mind back to when the sting happened, and then He gave me the impression of smiling impressing upon me, “See, I didn’t even allow the spirit of fear to attack your body. You are that close to me!” I was flabbergasted, and continued to praise Him! It was the first time, in all these years, that I did not feel the effects of the spirit! A beautiful confirmation of overcoming all things, and preparing me to go through more in-depth training in Him. Praise Jesus! And the amazing thing is that what you are talking about with the shield, that is something the Lord has taught me on, and it actually sums up this next book: a Warrior spirit for Christ (the female, Desiree, has been conditioned and trained by the Lord to have that warrior spirit!) Amazing! Praise Jesus….. And regarding your dream, Praise Jesus! YES, YES! That is how the Lord talks to us some of the time, when we are asleep we are at our most vulnerable and He is able to teach us without all of the extra noise in our mind. I love when the Lord converses with my spirit at night, and oft times waking up with words and excitement flowing from my mouth knowing full well the Lord was talking to me. Sometimes I don’t remember the scripture, or what He had said and taught me on, or spoke to me about, but instead I just smile and look to Jesus telling Him that He will reveal it to me when I need to know it! Isn’t it glorious when He reveals to us in ways that we deeply know, within ourselves that it is truly from Him? Only He truly knows what we need! I will continue to pray for you and your husband, praise Jesus for your faithfulness! And stay-the-course! xoxoxo, Praise Jesus, thank you so much for sharing with me your experiences, I greatly appreciate that, and please message me any time! xoxo You can email me at: email@example.com! Look forward to seeing your victorious journey!
