ABBA REALLY HEALS
MAKE THE GREAT EXCHANGE AND STAND FIRM IN YOUR LIBERTY (PART 4)

In Part 3, we focused on unmasking the emotional pain that was weighing us down during the holidays. We uncovered the root cause of the emotional pain, we faced it and confronted the hurts head on. Also, we identified five main areas of loss that could result in emotional pain. These areas are the loss of: (1) A loved one, (2) Self Esteem, (3) Peace, (4) Integrity, and (5) A right standing with God. We answered some simple questions regarding our true feelings toward each of these areas and we circled the corresponding negative words or feelings within each category of emotional pain. We then drew a cross on a sheet of paper and took every negative word and placed it on the cross. This exercise reminded us of Isaiah 53:4 and 5 that tell us that Jesus has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weakness and distressed) on the cross and with the stripes that wounded Him, we are healed and made whole (SEE PART 3).

It is important for us to believe that Jesus Christ died so that we might live. We don’t have to cope with our emotional pain or live helplessly. We don’t have to give up and commit suicide or become lame and paralyzed. We can move forward and have a future that in unhindered by our past. Jesus Christ died for us so that we could be healed, whole, and experience an abundant life. (AMEN! Abba Really Heals! We must believe this, receive it and walk in it! This can be your reality if you really allow Abba to take hold of every emotional pain.)

We moved through Thanksgiving and Christmas and as we approach the end of the year, perhaps you may be thinking about how you started 2015 with your loved one who is no longer here. You may also think about how your life was a little happier in the beginning of the year or how you may have been closer to God early in the year. Some may see the end of this year as just another year of feeling helpless or how the stresses of this year produced crippling emotions. Whatever the negative thought, know that you do not have to remain in this helpless position because when we are weak and helpless is truly when we give God permission to be our strength. We deny ourselves and accept Him. We place our human strength under God’s control and we allow Him to reward us with a life filled with His abundant grace, favor, good understanding and high esteem in the sight of God and man (See Proverbs 3:4 in the Amplified Bible). We truly humble ourselves and begin to immerse ourselves in God’s mercy so that He can touch us in those areas where we need Him the most.

My prayer is that you would give God an opportunity to be the strength of your life. What do you have to lose? I invite you to say the prayer of salvation with me. Our salvation must be settled and complete. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son and whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16). Romans 10:9 and 10 tell us that if we confess with our mouth, the Lord Jesus Christ and believe in our hearts that God raised Him from the dead, then we are saved. Romans 10:13 tells us that “whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Our salvation is synonymous with our healing and wholeness.

Jesus took on every burden so that we would not have to carry any burden. Let the healing process begin and allow the Spirit of the living God to fully resurrect you. Allow God to give you a new life of hope and healing. Let go of the past pain and receive today’s blessings. Come out of your tomb of despair and hopelessness.

These things must be settled. Know that:
(1) God wants to heal you. Our hearts should be at peace. We are not created to carry the emotional pain and burdens that sometimes overwhelms our lives.

(2) Do you want to be healed? We must want to be healed. Don’t hold on to your emotional pain. Release it to God. Don’t become codependent with your hurt or with everything that surrounds the hurts.

(3) The Word of God must be settled in our lives. We must make God real to us by studying who He is. We must know God personally. God provided us with a book of promises and wisdom. His Book fully explains who He is.

(4) We are powerless without God. We must run to Jesus’ feet or learn to stay at His feet for daily renewal and strength.

As we end this series of Abba really heals, we must ask ourselves—REALLY—who is Abba? Then we must “exchange all our emotional pain and hurts for Abba. Abba is our source Father who loves us and who truly cares for us. Let us make the great exchange. Abba is :

Jesus (Matthew 1:21)
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6)
Prince of Life (Acts 3:15)
Lord God Almighty (Revelations 15:3)
Word of Life (1 John 1:1)
Author and Finisher of our Faith ( Hebrews 12:2)
Shepherd and Bishop (I Peter 2:25)
Messiah (John 1:41)
Lord God Omnipotent (Revelations 19:6)
The Resurrection and the Life (John 11:25)
El Shaddai – the all sufficient God (Genesis 49:25)
Jehovah Rophe—Our Healer (Exodus 15:26)
Jehovah Shalom – Our Peace (Judges 6:23)
Jehovah Shamar—He is always there (Ezekiel 48:35)

Hold on to your healing by burying yourself in who God is. Allow God to bless you with His promise of Healing. Guess what? Abba Really Heals! Receive Him in Jesus’ Name. I pray that this 4 part series was helpful during the holiday season. God bless you.

ABBA REALLY HEALS! PART 2

ABBA REALLY HEALS!
(Unresolved emotional pain can be dangerous)
(Part 2) Copyrighted by Elder Dorn J.B. Walker

As I continue with Part 2, I am repeating my concern that as some are preparing for precious family times and elaborate menus and décor, the emotions of others are beginning to spiral down. This is why I am stirred to write to all who would read and receive comfort during this difficult time.

As I think of my own emotional healing, I know that Abba really heals. (Father God is truly our Source of Healing and Wholeness). He healed me and I am His Ambassador; fully persuaded and determined to represent Him—He is the Healer and the Great Physician over all of our cares, brokenness, burdens, worries, issues, and stress; no matter how deep the pain.

Part I of this BLOG encourages us to recount our own story of brokenness. Take your time as you pen it in your diary or where ever you choose. Be real in expressing your emotions because healing begins when we admit that we cannot in our own strength put the pieces back together again. I also stated that before I could fully come to grips with my need to be healed, I had to fully acknowledge my total brokenness and I had to fully surrender to the fact that I was weak and helpless and could not do a thing about it. This is the place where new life begins because we now give God the opportunity to come into our lives and point us to “Wholeness”. Remember God is the Healer and the Great Physician. However, the only way to God is through His Son Jesus the Christ. I encourage you to give Jesus an opportunity to come into your life right now. Acts 2:21 says that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ into your life, this is the beginning of acknowledging Him as the real and only healer. Some of you may say: Well, I have already accepted Jesus into my life but, I have some serious emotional hurts. Welcome to Part 2! This section is critical because it speaks of the fact that “Superficial Christianity can be dangerous”. The reality is that we hurt over the loss of our loved ones because we miss them so much. We were connected to them for a length of time and we had a special relationship with them. However, if we accept Jesus Christ and do not have a personal relationship with Him, we will find ourselves with a superficial understanding of God and never experiencing His delivering power. We must take the time to know God personally.

For example, some may quote short and easy phrases when asked about their well-being–by saying “I’m blessed and highly favored” or I am blessed by the best”. This is all good and I truly believe in prophesying over our lives. However, true healing shows up when we are real with God and ourselves and when we have a personal intimacy and relationship with the One who heals. Quick and easy quotes may only serve as band aids to cover up the real turmoil that is still occurring in our lives. If we don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ we will find ourselves pretending to be a victorious Christian, without understanding what it really means to have victory in our lives.

God showed me that many people are spiritual widows or spiritual widowers. These are people who are in a complete broken state. Complete brokenness can be the result of the loss of a loved one, loss of self-esteem, loss of integrity, loss of peace or perhaps the loss of a right standing with God. The emotions of a spiritual widow as well as a traditional widow have the same effect upon us. We often feel paralyzed and unable to move forward with life. With a full understanding of God, we can move forward because He makes all things possible in our lives.

Isaiah 33:6 says that wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of our times and the strength of our salvation. We must allow ourselves to grow both in the wisdom and knowledge of God because “Unresolved emotional pain will become dangerous”. While going through emotional hurts, we become vulnerable and an open prey to the enemy who wants us to fall into deeper depression that may cause all types of sinful behaviors and turmoil in our lives. I Peter 5:8 tells us to be sober, be vigilant because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about seeking whom he may devour. If we don’t take the time to grow closer to God, we may fall so low that we find ourselves dying spiritually. This would be a greater problem. So please don’t allow yourself to die spiritually.

In summary, each loss in our lives has the potential to result in further chaos and turmoil if it is not identified, controlled, and healed. If you find yourself without a true sense of direction or focus in your life because of a loss or brokenness you must make a choice. Imagine yourself in a car driving into the land of despair. You can continue to drive the car further into despair or you can stop and park until you determine how to find hope. If you can relate to being in this position, I recommend that you stop the car and park until you determine how to find hope. Cry out to God who brings hope and comfort. Stay tuned for Part III on the subject: Defining the Emotional Pain and Naming Our Enemies.

In 2015, walk with “Expectancy”!

WHAT IS EXPECTANCY?

Copyright and Written by Elder Dorn J.B. Walker (Walls of Salvation Church Ministries)

Before we move further into this year, it is imperative that we allow this word “EXPECTANCY” to seep deeply into our hearts. God is speaking so clearly to His people. His word this year is that ALL BELIEVERS MUST WALK WITH “EXPECTANCY” in 2015! We are to:

(1) EXPECT – “RESTORATION”
(2) EXPECT- “FAVOR” (GRACE & MERCY)
(3) EXPECT – “INCREASE” and lastly,
(4) EXPECT – “THE POWER OF GOD” to be manifested!

WHAT IS EXPECTANCY?
Let’s look at a verse of scripture that many have quoted but perhaps paid only casual or nominal attention to.
Proverbs 13:12 says: Hope deferred makes the heart sick. But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life….Let’ look at 4 key words in this scripture that will help us to understand “expectancy”. The words are:
(1) HOPE, (2) DEFERRED (3) HEART and (4) SICK

(1`) HOPE
In this scripture hope comes from the Hebrew word Towcheleth). Its root word is “Expectation”. Here, hope also means to wait, to tarry, trust. (I simply paraphrase this to say—I know something so great is around the corner and I am expecting it any moment—It is so great that I am willing to wait for it —it is so big that I AM TARRYING AND TRUSTING FOR IT. I can literally taste it. What are you waiting for? Do you sense the word Hope? Are you shifting a little in the area of hope?

NOW here is what happened next in this verse. As I was expecting, waiting, tarrying, and trusting for this great thing, SOMETHING HAPPENED. Oh, Oh, A Deferral appeared in front of me. It came in my way… something moved in—it appeared to have the appearance of blocking this thing that I sensed so badly– The very thing that I trusted to appear any moment. In Proverbs 13:12, this is what deferred means:

(2) DEFERRED
Is taken from the Hebrew word mashak which means to prolong, to delay, stretch out. In this scripture, deferred is used as a verb, It means to be EXTENDED, to DRAG…

So up to this point we see IN this PROVERBS, the very BOOK WRITTEN TO provide WISDOM, DISCIPLINE, AND A PRUDENT LIFE. This proverb is warning us and telling us to be aware of the fact that THE VERY THING THAT WE ARE WAITING, TRUSTING FOR TARRYING FOR, EXPECTING CAN ENCOUNTER A DRAG OR AN EXTENTION. This very thing can experience a delay. It can be prolonged AND WHEN THIS HAPPENS….OUR HEART IS directly AFFECTED. We must understand that there is a direct correlation between this deferral and the proper functioning of our hearts.

(3) HEART
What does Proverbs 13:12 say about the heart. Heart in this scripture is the Hebrew word “labe” (pronounced “leb”). It refers to our feelings, will, intellect (this describes the area of our soul) our mind, understanding, wisdom, aims, thoughts, and principles.

As soon as the deferral moves in, ALL OF THESE AREAS are affected and infected. All of our choices and what we desire to do, all that we think, our plans or lack of plans, our goals or our pointless living—(in essence, our will, intellect, mind, and aims are directly correlated to this deferral and we must become keenly aware of this fact).

Here is the big reality. This direct correlation RESULTS IN BECOMING SICK:
The 4th word SICK taken from Proverbs 13:12 is Chalah (pronounced—Khaw-law) means to be worn, weak, afflicted, to grieve, to be wounded. We become worn out, weak, afflicted, we grieve, and we are wounded. We suffer an assault.
The very moment we lose sight of “hope” or “expectation” is the moment our heart—the vital life line of our life becomes sick affecting every goal, aim, understanding and all of our feelings.

Therefore, the key word for 2015 is that it is important for us to understand that the deferral by itself has little or no effect on us if we keep “Hope” and “Expectation” in the right position. “Keep them out of the deferrals”!

In this year 2015, God wants to remove us from focusing on the deferral and He wants to place us right in the MIDDLE OF OUR EXPECTATIONS. In reality, we must become intentional and declare “I AM COMING OUT OF ALL DEFERRALS”

WHEN HOPE IS DELAYED, PROLONGED, STRETCHED OUT—We grieve and feel afflicted. God wants us to know that “Hope” is meant to be operated in the present AND NOW—IT IS MEANT TO BE ACTIVE. It is a VERB–it is happening now—and not to be deferred. Hope and Expectation stand alone. They represent their own meaning. They stand on their own ground. Don’t try to give them new meaning. They stand alone and they are enough for us. We may find ourselves thinking: “WELL MAYBE”— GOD may have SAID IT—however, the QUESTION IS: DO YOU BELIEVE IT? If we don’t fully believe what we know, our heart will not function properly—it will become and stay sick.

To summarize, this PROVERBS IS SAYING THAT when Hope functions the proper way—THEN I AM A HEALTHY BELIEVER. I AM NOT SICK–I truly believe. This means that I am whole in my understanding of God. Because I am whole in my understanding of God, the area of my soul (my mind, will, intellect, seat of emotions, my conscience all line up with God. AMEN!

When we walk in this state of wholeness, we become “Expectant” believers. WE KNOW THAT WE ARE PREGNANT AND WE ANTICIPATE giving birth. How many of us know that not even a Doctor or midwife can stop our delivery when we are pregnant. We are pregnant and at the time of birth, the baby WILL come. Nothing can stop it! Hallelujah.

How many believe that they are pregnant right about now? I am declaring that there are many pregnant believers who will give birth in 2015. If you are pregnant then believe God that the very thing that we hope for is coming to past…AMEN!

Picture yourself this year. Are you pregnant?

Here is another key point to ponder as we walk with “Expectancy”. Pregnant believers fly high in the Kingdom of God. Pregnant believers fully understand their posture in God’s Kingdom. They understand the posture of being above and not below. They understand the posture of being the head and never the tail. So let’s use this simple example for further clarity. Just as an airplane is designed to fly, we are destined to reign in God’s Kingdom. Picture this for just a moment.

HOW many of us, when we board an airplane EXPECT THE AIRPLANE TO FLY? HOW MANY expect the airplane to stay grounded? Isn’t it frustrating, when A FLIGHT IS DELAYED or when takeoff is prolonged?

THE LATER PART OF Proverbs 13:12 says…WHEN DESIRE COMES. (When satisfaction comes, when delight comes), it is a tree of life.

How many of us are anticipating something this year? Really!
Are you Pregnant with something?
Do you believe for something?
Do you trust for something? Then, this is your year to fly high in the Kingdom of God. This is your year to be deeply rooted so that life would spring forth.

Just as an airplane is expected to FLY, know that your desires are coming in 2015. As you delight yourself in the LORD…Surely, He will grant you the desires of your heart and you will fly high and reign in God’s Kingdom.

JUST AS THE AIRPLANE IS EXPECTED TO FLY…WE TOO must move into ACTION. EXPECTANCY MUST BE AT THE FOREFRONT. In order to move in EXPECTANCY, WE MUST BE AWARE OF the SAME 4 PHASES that are necessary for an airplane to fly. I pray that these 4 phases will STAY WITH YOU THROUGHOUT THIS year. The 4 phases are:
(1) LIFT
(2) WEIGHT
(3) THRUST
(4) DRAG

Now let’s look at each phase that must be implemented this year.
LIFT
1) We must surround ourselves with individuals who will LIFT US. Lifters are those who will draw us closer to God–NOT THE ONES WHO PULL US AWAY. Not the ones who draw us closer to a personality or to an Agenda. Not the seducing spirits or those who operate selfishly in the flesh for earthly gain. We must surround ourselves with those who lift us closer to God. Only God can blow the breath of life into our lives when we fully accept His son Jesus Christ.
WEIGHT
2) Remove all WEIGHTS FROM OUR LIVES. How many of us ever tried to jog with 20 lbs. attached to each ankle. This sounds really crazy. When we try to move or rise up with weights attached to us, we will only be held back. We must remove all weights. All of us can identify the weights in our lives. We are not meant to carry them. Take them off. We must fly! Remove all hindrances and encumbrances so that flight would easily occur.

THRUST
3) Look for the ones WHO THRUST US Closer to God by the use of His WORD. Thrusters are those who desire for us to grow spiritually. Thrusters continuously push us and prod us. They often induce our labor in anticipation that we will give birth. Thrusters continue to induce until something happens. They induce until the birth canal is opened. I personally thank God for the thrusters in my life. They allowed me to give birth. Glory! Thrusters may appear tough but their goal is for you to give birth. They will often tell us–YOU CAN DO all things through Christ who gives you strength.

DRAG
4) LASTLY, we must COME OUT OF THE DRAG. Ironically, drag is a synonym for the word DEFERRED used in Proverbs 13:12. God is saying in His word; don’t let the DRAGS HOLD YOU BACK. Drags are obstacles and roadblocks designed to take you out. Drags are equated to satan himself who prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. His goal is to kill, steal, and to destroy our lives.

DRAGS are never able to fly and they want to ensure that you will never fly either. But you must believe that YOU WILL GET THERE. AMEN!
I declare and I decree that in 2015, Expectancy will be realized when we steer clear of the drags. Don’t allow drags to remove you from your high place. We are destined and designed to reign in God’s Kingdom.

ARE YOU READY TO MOVE INTO ACTION? DO YOU HAVE EXPECTANCY? COME ON LET’S FLY…LET US REIGN IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD. God’s Kingdom come and His will be done in 2015. HALLELUJAH!! Hallelujah! Amen. So be it!

What is an Ambassador of Christ? The Ambassador Speaks!!!

What is an Ambassador of Christ? The Ambassador Speaks!!! Apostle John Walker Jr. and Elder Dorn Walker published this Ambassador Confession more than 7 years ago. During a season of testing, We confronted the enemy and declared that we are more than conquerors…We are Christ Ambassadors. The Ambassador still speaks!! Will you declare and decree the word of God in the earth? God’s word is the language of the Ambassador…

THE AMBASSADOR’S CONFESSION
(Hebrews 4:14)

I AM A MANIFESTED SON OF GOD; AND IF A SON, THEN AN HEIR AND A JOINT HEIR WITH JESUS CHRIST! JESUS CHRIST WASHED ME FROM MY SINS BY HIS OWN BLOOD, AND HAS MADE ME A KING AND A PRIEST UNTO HIS GOD AND FATHER. IN GOD’S KINGDOM, I AM MORE THAN A CONQUEROR. I AM CHRIST’S AMBASSADOR!
(Rom. 8, II Corinth 6, Gal. 4, I John 3, Rev. 1, II Corinth. 5, Eph. 6:20)

I AM ABRAHAM’S SEED. I AM BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING! I STOPPED THE CURSE. THE CURSE HAS TO CEASE BECAUSE CHRIST HAS REDEEMED ME FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW. I HAVE ERADICATED POVERTY AND LACK, SICKNESS AND DISEASE, AND SPIRITUAL DEATH IN MY LIFE. I AM A DESTROYER OF THE WORKS OF THE devil. satan IS UNDER MY FEET. I HAVE THE VICTORY THROUGH CHRIST JESUS! I AM BLESSED COMING IN AND BLESSED GOING OUT. I AM BLESSED IN THE CITY AND BLESSED IN THE FIELD. EVERYTHING I PUT MY HANDS TO IS BLESSED. I AM THE HEAD AND NOT THE TAIL, ABOVE ONLY AND NOT BENEATH. I LEND TO MANY NATIONS AND I BORROW FROM NONE.
(Gal. 3, Gen. 22:17-18, Deut. 28, I John 3, Rom. 16, I Corinth. 15, Eph. 1)

I ENFORCE GOD’S AUTHORITY HERE ON EARTH! JESUS GAVE ME THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM. WITH THESE KEYS, I BIND EVERY SPIRIT CONTRARY TO THE SPIRIT OF GOD FROM MANIFESTING, OPERATING, SPEAKING OR COMING AGAINST ME. I BELIEVE IN AND LOOSE THE IMMEASURABLE, UNLIMITED, AND SURPASSING GREATNESS OF GOD’S POWER IN AND FOR ME. THIS SAME POWER RESURRECTED JESUS FROM THE DEAD AND SEATED HIM AT GOD’S RIGHT HAND–FAR ABOVE ALL PRINCIPALITY, POWER, MIGHT, AND DOMINION AND EVERY NAME THAT IS NAMED NOT ONLY IN THIS WORLD BUT IN THAT WHICH IS TO COME. I HAVE BEEN RAISED WITH CHRIST. CHRIST, WHO IS MY LIFE, HAS APPEARED IN ME. THEREFORE, I APPEAR WITH HIM IN GLORY! GOD HAS GIRDED ME WITH HIS STRENGTH AND MADE MY WAY PERFECT. HE HAS BROUGHT ME FORTH INTO A L–A–R–G–E, SPACIOUS PLACE. GOD IS MY FORTRESS AND MY DELIVERER. HE HAS MADE ME A DELIVERER.
I PURSUE MY ENEMIES UNTIL I OVERTAKE THEM ALL.
(Luke 10:19, Matt. 28, Matt. 16, Eph. 1, Col. 3, Rom. 6, Psalm 18)

I AM THE MEEK OF THE EARTH. THEREFORE, I WILL INHERIT THE EARTH. I ASKED OF THE LORD AND HE HAS PROMISED TO GIVE ME THE HEATHENS FOR MY INHERITANCE AND THE UTMOST PARTS OF THE EARTH FOR MY POSSESSION. I HAVE FOUND MY TREASURE IN THIS LIFE! THEREFORE, I SELL ALL TO WORK IN MY FIELD OF INHERITANCE.
(Psalm 2, Psalm 18, Matt. 5, Matt.13)

I DEMONSTRATE MY LOVE FOR YOU, GOD–WITH A-L-L MY HEART, A-L-L MY SOUL, A-L-L MY MIND AND A-L-L MY STRENGTH; BY YOUR LOVE, I LOVE MY NEIGHBOR AS MYSELF.
I WILL BLESS THE LORD AT ALL TIMES AND HIS PRAISE SHALL CONTINUALLY BE IN MY MOUTH. OH MAGNIFY THE LORD WITH ME AND LET US EXALT HIS NAME TOGETHER.
MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE UNTO THE LORD ALL YOU LANDS! SERVE THE LORD WITH GLADNESS! COME BEFORE HIS PRESENCE WITH SINGING! KNOW THAT THE LORD IS GOD! IT IS HE WHO MADE US, NOT WE OURSELVES. WE ARE HIS PEOPLE AND THE SHEEP OF HIS PASTURE. GOD, I ENTER INTO YOUR GATES WITH THANKSGIVING AND INTO YOUR COURTS WITH THE HIGHEST PRAISE!
I GIVE THANKS TO YOU LORD AND I PRAISE YOUR NAME. FOR YOU ARE GOOD; YOUR MERCY AND LOVE ARE EVERLASTING; YOUR FAITHFULNESS AND TRUTH ENDURE TO ALL GENERATIONS…
(Deut. 6:5, Matt. 22:37-40, I Corinth 13, Gal. 5, Psalm 34, Psalm 100)
HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH!!!!!

We Declare and Decree… by Apostle John Walker Jr. and Elder Dorn J.B. Walker 2007 and forward!
