A weed can be defined as “any wild plant that grows in an unwanted place, especially in a garden or field where it prevents the cultivated plants from growing freely.”
21 Yet I had planted you a noble vine, a seed of highest quality. How then have you turned before Me Into the degenerate plant of an alien vine? 22 For though you wash yourself with lye, and use much soap, Yet your iniquity is marked before Me,” says the Lord God. - Jeremiah 2:21-22 - NKJV
Beloved, be careful to remain connected to Me, the Vine, for the days are evil and there is so much deceit in the land. Renew your mind, beloved. Continue to feast on My Word because that is where your true nourishment comes from. Do not allow the negative reports to poison and to choke the life out of your branch and turn you into a degenerate plant of an alien nature. Do not let those weeds attach themselves to your heart. You have the two-edged sword of the Spirit — My Word — that cuts down every weed that tries to hold you back from growing and advancing. Do not allow the frequency of the enemy to change your DNA. Tune him out! Take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ and command the enemy to leave in Jesus’ name. In Me, you have the power and the Kingdom authority to cast down those thoughts with My Word. Remember, the enemy is very crafty and very subtle. He will creep in a little at a time like the snake that he is, spewing his lies, and, before you know it, you have been polluted, and where no amount of washing will be able to remove your iniquity that would mark you. Beloved, let the power of My love cast out the spirit of fear that threatens to enter into your heart and turn it cold. Continue to seek Me with your whole heart in the secret place and drink from My well.
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. - Hebrews 4:12 - NKJV
4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples. - John 15:4-8 - NKJV
And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. - Mark 12:30 - NKJV
You shall walk after the Lord your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice; you shall serve Him and hold fast to Him. - Deuteronomy 13:4 - NKJV
Beloved, you may be living in the world, but you are not of the world. Remember who you are in Me. Do not allow yourself to be polluted by this world system. You have been washed clean by the Blood of Jesus and you became a new creation in Me, without spot or blemish. Do not open the door to the spirit of fear for it serves the one who comes to kill, steal and destroy. Do not chase after the foxes that spoil the vine on your own strength. You cannot cast out fear with fear, but out of the place of faith and love. Let us do this together, beloved! Do not allow the enemy to convince you to retreat and put your head back in the sand out of your frustration because of what you perceive as the wicked taking ground all around you. Do not lie down in the middle of the battle field, beloved. Do not give up and do not give in, no matter how loud the noise grows around you. Keep standing strong where I have planted you, defying the enemy, confessing the Truth of My Word. I have already given you My armor, the weapons of spiritual warfare that you need and the high ground, being seated with Me in heavenly places. Remember, that you are battling with Me from the place of victory, from the place of rest. Your victory is assured, beloved!
Catch us the foxes, the little foxes that spoil the vines, for our vines have tender grapes. - Song of Solomon 2:15 - NKJV
in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight— - Colossians 1:22 - NKJV
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” - John 16:33 - NKJV
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. - 1 Timothy 6:12 - NKJV
Rise higher with Me, beloved. Let the thermals of Holy Spirit lift you up and above the noise of the enemy. Remember, beloved, that you are not the weed growing in an unwanted place. You have every right to be here as you were called to take the land and to occupy it until My return. Rest and absorb the rays of My glory and allow Me to help you pull the weeds that have been trying to threaten to wrap themselves around you and choke out your faith. My garden of promise is yours for the taking, beloved, for I have given you dominion over the earth as your inheritance. You do not have to take what is happening around you lying down. Dearest one, you have the ability as a new creation in Christ, to bring the Kingdom of God down to earth, operating out of the third heaven authority.
You do not have to bow down, acquiesce or comply with the enemy’s demands on you. You are not under his authority or lordship. The enemy has no authority over you for you are sovereign in Me. Remember, the devil is the one who is under YOUR feet because you are part of the body of Christ and everything is under Him so everything is under you. Beloved, you are called to occupy, to rule and to reign with Me, Jesus, as one of My kings and priests.
For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. - Ephesians 5:30 - NKJV
To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. - Revelation 5-6 - NKJV
Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all. - 1 Corinthians 15:28- NKJV
And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, - Ephesians 1:22 - NKJV
Beloved, remain attached to Me, the Vine, and all shall be well with you. Be intentional to receive a fresh in-filling of My life-giving water - the Holy Spirit -- and the nourishment of My Word daily. I have planted you in good soil, beloved. You are about to flourish like never before. Expect to see an accelerated “miracle growth” in your heart and soul, beloved, as I Am promoting you in the spirit. You have been experiencing a lot of growing pains in this last season in the dry places, but it has all been to uproot the weeds in your life to get you into perfect alignment with what I Am doing in this time. Live in high expectation to see Me do the miraculous in and through you and in every area of your life and in the lives of those you love in this hour. Keep declaring it with the creative power of My Word and with the authority I have given you as a new creation in Christ and you shall see it manifest. You must continue to believe and not doubt who you really are and who I created you to be in Me and to operate in it, in this new era. You know in your heart that I Am faithful to perform My Word, for you have seen My faithfulness and My goodness manifested in your life over and over. My Word never changes just as I never change because I Am the Word. The extraordinary Kingdom life with Me is what you were created for. Let this become your new normal and your higher reality, beloved. I Am the God of miracles. Nothing is too difficult for Me. I Am the Giver of life. I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life and no one can go to the Father except through Me. You and I are One, beloved. I Am your Bridegroom and I Am the Sustainer of all things and I shall uphold you with My righteous right hand. You shall live and not die, beloved. With a long and fruitful life I shall satisfy you! You shall be fruitful and you shall partner with Holy Spirit to multiply My Kingdom on earth for such a time as this.
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. - Isaiah 41:10 - NKJV
Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” - Genesis 1:28 - NKJV
