Warrior Word

Let the Bridegroom leave His room,

It’s Prophecy’s hour,

In Kingdom Power.

Unsheathe the sword,

You warrior word.

His Bride is here.

Relationship draws near.

“The fig tree and vine

Give their full yield.” Joel 2:22 ESV



“Let the Bridegroom leave His room,

And the Bride her chamber.” Joel 2:16 ESV



“For He is tenderhearted, kind and forgiving.

He has a thousand ways to set you free!

He Himself will redeem you.” Psalm 130:7 TPT

Ready In White

“For where your treasure is,
There your heart will be also.”

This is a bit different for me, but as you read, I believe it will be a word of encouragement for each of us as we keep our eyes and heart set on Jesus Who loves us.  Love ya, Denise xoxox

“Sleeping sound throughout the night.

Dreaming a dream birthed in white.

Eyelet and threads of fine yard,

Woven in expectation of a new birth to be born.

Waking in peace as I remembered the plan.

At the end, I was rushing to pack,

For the plane would soon land.

Departure was imminent,

Its time was sure,

12:40 marked the numbers I saw on the door.

In peace and pleasantness I pondered these events.

“Lord, are You birthing something new in me, or is the message deeper sent?”

But as I lay in the folds of the breaking dawn,

My peace escaped me as the morning dove’s song.

Worry and anxiety replaced all birthed in me,

As I recalled the days of this now place in our current history.

Fighting back the fear of the doubts,

I grasped to recall the dream’s details shout.

“Departure at 12:40” but what was that all about?

So I searched the Scripture to see what I could see.

Psalm 12 has 8 verses, and David speaks it well.

“The wicked prowl on every side.”

So this verse could not tell.

Psalm 124 has 8 verses,

The Songs of Ascent.

David recalls the Lord’s faithfulness in their life’s events.

“Blessed be the LORD Who has not given us as prey to their teeth.”  Verse 6

Written in the margin,

Next to the teeth,

“They gnashed their teeth at Him.”

Spoke of my Jesus Who knows their deceit.

Thinking of the Man Who died for my sins.

Remembering He knows and has experienced the

Pain I’ve been in.

Fire ignited and I thought,

“Look in Luke!”

Maybe, the answer is found in his Book.

Well lo and behold, the verse spoke well clear.

Draw near my soul,

For I’ll write it down here.

“Therefore you also be ready,

For the Son of Man is coming

At an hour you do not expect.” Luke 12:40

One can’t get a better answer than that.

My Jesus is speaking directly to me.

“Do not have an anxious mind.” Luke 12:29

Nor a heart filled with anxiety.

“Do not fear, little flock,

For it is your Father’s good pleasure

To give you the Kingdom.” Luke 12:32

“For where your treasure is,

There your heart will be also.” Luke 12:34

“Let your waist be grided and

Your lamps burning.” Luke 12:35

For

“Blessed are the servants who the Master,

When He comes,

Will find watching.” Luke 12:37

For the Lord will surely come “quickly” Revelations 22:20

And make “All things new.” Isaiah 43:19

For continue to trust Me,

For I’m coming back for you.”


“I will come again,

And receive you to Myself;

That where I AM,

There you may be also.”

John 14:3

Poems to Ponder – Day 37

“While yet it was still dark,

She was the first thought on His heart.”

 

“Now when He rose early on the first day of the week,

He appeared first to Mary Magdalene.”  Mark 16:9

They Esteemed Him Not

“…he was despised, and we esteemed him not.” Isaiah 53:3

Poems to Ponder

Whom do I put my trust in? To rest at His feet and will.

He poured out His Blood to the point of death.

His fragrance covers me still.

“Now when Jesus was at Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, a woman came up to Him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on His head as He reclined at table. And when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, “Why this waste?” Matthew 26:6-8

The Scripture clearly points out they were seated “at table” in “the house of Simon the leper”. Obviously, Simon was healed of leprosy, or Jesus and his disciples would not have been sitting in Simon’s home, and eating at his table. Unmistakably, Jesus must have healed Simon. One can only imagine how Jesus felt hearing His own disciples say, “Why this waste?”  They “esteemed him not” and He loved them still.

“…he was despised, and we esteemed him not.” Isaiah 53:3

Excerpt from Day 10

 

Distant Song

“The prairie night

With crafted light,

Lent its field

To the Moon revealed.

Warmth of air

We lingered there;

Softest touch held so much.

Golden view

Created by You.

Distant song;

Lone coyote sang along.”

Poems to Ponder – Day Thirty-Seven

“While yet it was still dark,

 She was the first thought on His heart.”

“Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene.”  Mark 16:9

Jesus, the Risen Lord, “appeared first to Mary”.

What an awesome privilege to be the first He appeared to.

Was it because “Mary” was a woman?

Was it because it was “the first day of the week”?

Scripturally, in His faithfulness to His Word,

it was “early” and the very first thing she sought in her day was Him.

“One Lamb, in the morning…at the entrance…where I will meet with you, to speak to you there. And (you) shall know that I Am the LORD (your) God.” Exodus 29:38-46

Like a Lamb Brought Forth

“…like a lamb that was led to slaughter…”Isaiah 53:7

The Hebrew definition of this Scripture can be translated as this:

“…like an animal, He was pushed out, brought forth with pomp, to be butchered.”

– The cost of this road is becoming far to clear. My whole being wants to turn away, hid my eyes, close my mind. To turn away now, was not an option for Jesus, the Perfect Lamb of God Who was slain for me. –

Poem to Ponder

“He set His “face like flint”,

determined onward, 

He freely went.”

 “Forty Days to the Cross – A Time of Reflection”, page 24, Denise Balog

He Waited

Poem to Ponder Day 17

“When I was off doing everything I could,

Jesus waited and understood.”


“Behold, I, 

I myself will search for My sheep and

seek them out…and 

I will rescue them from all places where 

they have been scattered on a 

day of clouds and thick darkness.”

Ezekiel 34:11-13 (ESV)
