A week of fasting; 3 for the good, 7 for the greater and on the 8th there shall be feasting and gladness. 2/25/18
This is a fast primarily of seclusion and going to a deeper and higher place in the Lord. The first 3 days are fasting for your personal self and local brethren. The last 4 days are for the greater church world wide. On the 8th day it is to be a celebration with feasting and dancing before the Lord ( even if it is just in your living room for those who are not part of an assembly )
For those who work you will have to primarily do this in your off time and make sacrifices of free time to spend in seclusion with Him.
Not anointing yourself would be no attention to the care of your flesh or regard for the flesh and it's comfort.
The purposes of this fast is to exercise yourself to focus solely on the Lord and have no care for the flesh and to "go big or go home" in the area of your faith.
It will take bold faith for some to obey this word. But our Father would not require us to do something that He is not prepared to equip us for.
Above all else, read carefully, meditate on the word below and most importantly be led by His Spirit.
This is a fast of seclusion, alone with the Lord.
Please do not make the mistake of taking this word lightly...
As Denny was reading his scripture, psalm 149:6(1-9) this morning in the meeting. The Holy Spirit came upon me and dropped this word below into my mind and heart. I was overwhelmed with the insistence and urgency of His Spirit as He spoke these things to me.
I asked Father for a confirmation of this and opened my Bible to the concordance and placed my finger down on the words, "I will praise thee" in psalm 9:1(this address is a mirror image of the verses Denny read in psalm 149. And the psalm itself is a confirmation.)
This is the word spoken to me:
" Hearken unto My voice those of you who would live holy and sanctified before Me, for I proclaim a fast unto everyone of you!
A week of mourning, weeping and lamentations; 3 for the good and 7 for the greater shall you fast unto Me. You shall eat no food nor drink any drink for 7 days.
Do not say within your hearts "I cannot" for this reason or upon this excuse; for what reason, what excuse will you give unto Me? Am I not the Lord your God? Am I not your strength and your sustenance?
You shall put away all your colorful clothing and your ornaments and you shall not anoint yourselves.
Put ye on the humble garments of fasting and lamentation . Close the door upon yourselves and speak ye out of the dust unto me in spirit and in truth, for the door is closing!
Shut your mouths, all of you, and speak not to one another with profane or idle speech. Cry unto Me and Me alone out of the dust of your humility.
Hide yourselves until the indignation be passed over, for your/this Body and for the greater.
There is sin! There is sin! And I will not suffer it in this place! Purify and cleanse yourselves of the unrighteousness. Walk carefully before Me and fear, for I am in this place! Obey my Word lest you be cut off from among my holy people.
And upon the morning of the 8th day, you shall arise and put off your garments of mourning and lamentation and you shall anoint yourselves and put on your best and most colorful and joyous garments.
It will be a day of feasting and gladness and you shall gather yourselves together unto Me with joyful dancing and singing.
Everyone of you will dance before me with singing and shouts of praise unto My Name, for I will cleanse the humble and refine this body. You will not have idols before your faces!
My people will be delivered and free from uncleanness and then shall you be delivered from your enemies !"
Denny's word: Psalm 149: 1-9,
1 Praise ye Jehovah. Sing unto Jehovah a new song, And his praise in the assembly of the saints.
2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
3 Let them praise his name in the dance: Let them sing praises unto him with timbrel and harp.
4 For Jehovah taketh pleasure in his people: He will beautify the meek with salvation.
5 Let the saints exult in glory: Let them sing for joy upon their beds.
6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand;
7 To execute vengeance upon the nations, And punishments upon the peoples;
8 To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron;
9 To execute upon them the judgment written: This honor have all his saints. Praise ye Jehovah.
My confirmation: Psalm 9:1 (1-20)
1 I will give thanks unto Jehovah with my whole heart; I will show forth all thy marvellous works.
2 will be glad and exult in thee; I will sing praise to thy name, O thou Most High.
3 When mine enemies turn back, They stumble and perish at thy presence.
4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; Thou sittest in the throne judging righteously.
5 Thou hast rebuked the nations, thou hast destroyed the wicked; Thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever.
6 The enemy are come to an end, they are desolate for ever; And the cities which thou hast overthrown, The very remembrance of them is perished.
7 But Jehovah sitteth as king for ever: He hath prepared his throne for judgment;
8 And he will judge the world in righteousness, He will minister judgment to the peoples in uprightness.
9 Jehovah also will be a high tower for the oppressed, A high tower in times of trouble;
10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee; For thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
11 Sing praises to Jehovah, who dwelleth in Zion: Declare among the people his doings.
12 For he that maketh inquisition for blood remembereth them; He forgetteth not the cry of the poor.
13 Have mercy upon me, O Jehovah; Behold my affliction which I suffer of them that hate me, Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death;
14 That I may show forth all thy praise. In the gates of the daughter of Zion I will rejoice in thy salvation.
15 The nations are sunk down in the pit that they made: In the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
16 Jehovah hath made himself known, he hath executed judgment: The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. [Higgaion. Selah.
17 The wicked shall be turned back unto Sheol, Even all the nations that forget God.
18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten, Nor the expectation of the poor perish for ever.
19 Arise, O Jehovah; Let not man prevail: Let the nations be judged in thy sight.
20 Put them in fear, O Jehovah: Let the nations know themselves to be but men. [Selah.
Father's promise: Isaiah chapter 26:
1 In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah: we have a strong city; salvation will he appoint for walls and bulwarks.
2 Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth faith may enter in.
3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is'stayed on thee ; because he trusteth in thee.
4 Trust ye in Jehovah for ever; for in Jehovah, even Jehovah, is an everlasting rock.
5 For he hath brought down them that dwell on high, the lofty city: he layeth it low, he layeth it low even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.
6 The foot shall tread it down; even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.
7 The way of the just is uprightness: thou that art upright dost direct the path of the just.
8 Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O Jehovah, have we waited for thee; to thy name, even to thy memorial name , is the desire of our soul.
9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee earnestly: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.
10 Let favor be showed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness will he deal wrongfully, and will not behold the majesty of Jehovah.
11 Jehovah, thy hand is lifted up, yet they see not: but they shall see thy zeal for the people, and be put to shame; yea, fire shall devour thine adversaries.
12 Jehovah, thou wilt ordain peace for us; for thou hast also wrought all our works for us.
13 O Jehovah our God, other lords besides thee have had dominion over us; but by thee only will we make mention of thy name.
14 They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them, and made all remembrance of them to perish.
15 Thou hast increased the nation, O Jehovah, thou hast increased the nation; thou art glorified; thou hast enlarged all the borders of the land.
16 Jehovah, in trouble have they visited thee; they poured out a prayer when thy chastening was upon them.
17 Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain and crieth out in her pangs; so we have been before thee, O Jehovah.
18 We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.
19 Thy dead shall live; my dead bodies shall arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in the dust; for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast forth the dead.
20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
21 For, behold, Jehovah cometh forth out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.
Blessings to you all, Eve.
