A Future & A Hope

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.

Proverbs 13:12, English Standard Version

A Quick Exegesis

Proverbs 13:12 powerfully states that we need hope in our lives for our hearts to be healthy, but that’s not all it says. We hear the first part of this verse repeated often, but we rarely look at the second part of the scripture, let alone the whole meaning of the verse.

We can look at the Hebrew transliteration and clearly see the author of this verse is talking about a weak or sick heart where “heart” represents our inner man, mind, or will. Let’s take a quick look at all three of these areas. Our inner man can represent our soul as we exist today with its mind, will, and emotions. Our mind containing our emotions takes us to a complicated place of potential positivity and negativity. Emotions are feelings and they are temporary. Emotions are not who we are, they are fleeting within the scope of eternity. Our will represents our free will which God gave humans to make choices for Him or against Him.

The second part of the verse is very straightforward. A desire is a feeling to want something or want something to happen. God places desires in our hearts that support our calling and purpose. We can also create our own desires from our flesh, which can get us into trouble.

The Tree of Life is now more accessible to us because of what Jesus did. We must believe in and trust Jesus to have access to the Tree of Life. The good news is that Holy Spirit came to us, and He teaches us everything we need to know to mature and grow closer to Father God.

Hope Reimagined

In the entirety of Proverbs 13:12, we can see that a person without hope can become desperate and long for a happy life, identity, and purpose. Without a strong identity in Christ as sons and daughters of God, and an understanding of our calling and purpose, we can have a hard time finding meaning in life.

It is without hope one can become depressed, fearful, and even suicidal.

Hope is defined as a feeling of expectation of something happening or trust that a desire will be fulfilled. The thing is, we can trust God. God does what He says He is going to do; He is not a liar. God has made all of us many promises throughout the Bible that we can count on happening. Our Bible is a manual for finding hope, faith, and love.

We need to desire the Word of God, which is Jesus Himself as stated in John 1:1–3 to be set free from negative machinations. Our minds must be on the Word with our faces turned toward God in this season. It’s time to use our righteous and sanctified imaginations to desire the things of God.

I repeat, it is without hope one can become depressed, fearful, and even suicidal.

To have hope, find your calling and your purpose, and walk toward doing them. God will meet you as you walk, and He’ll give you new hope and renewed meaning to live.

Simply Sharon, Arrows of Truth, Episode 3-B

Transcript for Arrows of Truth

Good morning, this is simply Sharon. Today I have a short word I got this during worship, but often the words I get are either encouragement or what the Lords up to. So during this particular worship service, I actually saw Fire Angels and I saw the River of love pour in. I saw raindrops with water and fire on them. Then I saw Jesus with a torch in his hand, lighting a Wick attached to a rocket, which really I believe has to do with his glory. And then he showed me an X marking the spot. And I believe that’s like the point of contact as far as his glory goes. And then later I saw two Angels, one with music in his hand and the other one with a musical note in his hand and over his head. Then I saw Jesus conducting worship and he’s always happy. 

It’s really cool. He’s always having a good time. And then at the end I just got this word. I am raising a voice above all voices, a voice to carry my love to carry my heart, a hearing heart to carry my heart. One that will send shockwaves around the world. Sound carried on arrows to be a direct hit. Arrows that cannot be broken or sent off course they will be a direct hit. A direct shot of truth to quench the lies of the enemy silver and gold they have not. My heart carries will send forth truth to the nations, arrows of Destiny, arrows of love, arrows of truth. None can compare. To the voice of truth that I will shoot for. They will always be a direct hit. To puncture the poisonous lies lies that have long been entrenched. 

My voice will shatter the lies that hold my people in bondage. They will be deafening, these ones that carry my arrows of truth, Eros that will shoot the smallest to the largest truth. Unshaken are my truth carriers. My truth carriers will destroy every stronghold lies that we believe and the people believe. This is the season to take down every lie, every falsehood, everything that would draw my people away from my truth. Every lie, every lie. My voice deposited in my cherished ones. Wise will no longer be able to stand in the weight of my presence. My presence will accompany every arrow that shoots forth. My voice will carry the weight of my glory, sharp as a two edged sword. They will not fail what I have sent them to do for my word is alive. It has power over death. It carries life. 

So in this word you know the Lord. It’s very clear the Lord is usually really direct, but I’m really excited because we’re on the edge of some great things to happen. And a lot of times in these words he’s actually giving you a really good picture of what to look for. So thank you today for listening and we’ll talk to you next time. 

Enough is Enough

Be Encouraged

Listen to this powerful word from a mighty Man of God.

Enough. It’s time for the church to rise up as the army they are called to be. It’s time for the army of god to war against the devil. For too long have they been stagnant and divided by a delusional spirit of compromise. We are living in a time where the fights should be taken to the third realm of heaven and we need to realize that spiritual warfare is no holds barred.

It’s time to go back in and take our liberty. You’re complaining about the government. Enough. We are not from here, we’re from God. I am sick and disgusted of the way I am seeing God’s children divided by opinions of no effect. You want to make an opinion matter. See what God says, He will let you have your way and laugh because you are writing your story. And you have placed God in the passenger seat when He should be in the driver seat.

Wake up watchman! I know some people haven’t been able to sleep this season. It’s because it’s your turn on the wall to watch and sound the alarms in your region. God has placed you in specific areas of the world for you to take that land and to slay the principalities of that region. Where are the troublemakers? The ones who always hear from God. And people don’t like what you have to say because you’re in direct download with the father. RISE UP! This is your time to shine.

This year will be the year of signs, miracles and wonders like never before. Repent in this hour and rekindle your fire on the altar before it turns to complete charcoal and receive your new wine skin and new wine. Shed off the old and come in with a banging new vehicle — vroom, vroom! It’s time for your ministries to come forth take it to the highways and byways. Mount up on your eagle and soar to those hurting in this hour. I speak life, life, life, life into you now. I pray that the Holy Spirit as you are reading this will fill your open gaps in your heart from the past or present, whether it’s trauma, depression, suicide, anger, bitterness, resentment, hate, lust, jealousy, sorrow, anything tearing at you.

I pray the Holy Spirit moves mightily now and if you’re a witch or warlock and come across this I pray salvation, and the Holy Spirit finds you, chases you, and hunts you down. I KNOW MY ABBAS BIGGER AND GUESS WHAT? HE LOVES YOU. TURN FROM YOUR WICKED WAYS AND COME-FORTH OUTOF THE SHADOW OF DARKNESS INTO THE LIGHT. Rise up church! love you all. You can do it even if you are alone. God has an army and horses of war on a hill waiting for your next move. Be encouraged, take joy and peace in who you are and be an unstoppable explosion. SHABAM! 🔥🔥💥💥

God is Faithful

He Wants to Trust Us

God is faithful to us even when we are not being faithful to Him. He is constantly working to keep us safe, to guide our ways, and to nurture love in our lives. He is our Champion in every way. He supports and promotes us minute by minute. And He teaches us to be like Him. He carries the majority of our relationship with Him in His fullness and power. We need only lean into Him and He responds immediately.

We can trust Him.

The easiest way to understand, know and believe the trust God has for us and how we can trust Him is to read the Bible. The Word of God is a critical tool and manual for living. And of course, it will build our faith overall. As we understand trust more, we are capable of greater things.

The Word says to take care of the little things in life to be trusted for more in Luke 19:17, TPT which reads, “Splendid! You have done well, my excellent servant. Because you have shown that you can be trusted in this small matter, I now grant you authority to rule over ten fortress cities.” Trust then needs to be developed and increased as we work to mature in Christ Jesus. The best part is that He will show us how.

He is wise and gives wise guidance as we trust in Him, not in our own understanding. Proverbs 3:5–6, TPT says, “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.” We are limited in this human form and need His help and support on a daily basis. We need intimate relationship with Him.

A Word from the Lord

Jana Rawling & Sharon Luzzi

Called to a Higher Level

Sometimes the Lord stops us with a Word of prophecy or knowledge, so we sit down and record. This Word came quickly after some praise and prayer and it’s a passionate plea for our true re-dedication to Jesus and the Kingdom of God in righteousness and holiness.

So, take what you like from the word and leave the rest with the Lord. Be blessed and stay safe.

Re-Dedicate Your Life in Christ

Heart Connection

Song of Songs 1:2 KJV – 2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love [is] better than wine.

Psalm 85:10 KJV – 10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed[H5401] [each other].

In our heart connection with God, the thought here is to also take that love we receive and be connected with love to our spouse and family. The Hebrew word for kiss here means to attach with fidelity, purity and submission. It also means we are mutually connected and joined together with righteousness which brings peace. This word also covers touch.

There is a physical connection with our families and close friends and a spiritual connection with God. The goal of both is intimacy and connection. In the heart connection, we are vulnerable which brings power, strength and pure love. The more vulnerable we are the more risk we take. The risk involves possible rejection and abandonment. This involves our hearts to be open to receive. Today I often find people have a very hard time receiving and believing that people are real and are open to love and be loved.

People are unwilling or do not know how to enter into relationship with God or their personal relationships because of fears. They become isolated and miss out on a very big part of life. They most likely are not connected to God with a real heart connection. This keeps them from having real relationship with others and especially the people closest to them. I realized that fear chokes the life out of love. Anywhere fear is present in life’s path, it prohibits moving forward and growth in love.

God from the very beginning in Genesis, created us for relationship. Genesis is a good book to start reading for foundations of God’s love for us. The whole word of God has to do with relationship in some form or another.

Our heart connection can often get blocked by our emotional realm. I have discovered that it is one of the primary factors in a disconnect or interference for us to receive from God. It colors the lense we see thru to see and interpret what is coming into our heart. This is the enemy’s main tactic is to insert fear and damage our emotions. The emotions actually soften our hearts and ignite the God given power of love that he wants to impart to us.

Our soul realm contains our mind/heart where the information stays when deposited. The next is our emotions which is like the radar or gate that tells our heart what to let in or not let in. The will is the seat of choice.

Identifying with the basic emotions of glad, sad and mad, brings some clarity in defining our heart condition. If we follow the encounters we have with people and what it evokes in us, we can identify what is keeping us from connecting. We may have a lot of work to do on our part in learning how to have relationship and change our behaviors with the help of God, Holy Spirit and Jesus. Reading the word breaks up the hard ground in our hearts and coming into worship. Worship breaks off fear and shame. It clears the atmosphere and breaks off pain. It heals and brings clarity. It gives us wisdom and deposits love into our hearts.

I am going to bring more on this heart connection in this blog. It is so important to Love God and ourselves and our neighbor. If we go down the road of an unattended heart it causes the disconnect from the source of all life. It brings illness, loneliness, heartache (more than necessary), hopelessness, depression, and lack of life-giving moments, days and lifetimes of love.

God loves us more than we can understand.

Luke 15:4 KJV – 4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?

Matthew 18:12-14 KJV – 12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? 13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that [sheep], than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. 14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.

John 10:10-11 KJV – 10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
