A Humble Heart

heart of the universe

No one sin is greater than the other in God’s eyes and we have all falling short of the Glory of God. It is better that we do not point out the gaps in people’s lives, rather that we Stand in those Gaps and intercede on their behalf….The older you get the more you realize that you need to extend grace to others because one day you may need that exact same grace bestowed upon you!! It doesn’t matter about what causes the sin, whether it be Sex, Power or Money; for these things and along with others have always been the devils lure since the dawn of time and in one way or another we have all fallen into the snare of the enemies illusion that these are the things that create surety in this worldly realm!! However, these lures may cause us to lose our sense of identity, and lead us into false realities, which can bring about destruction in our lives!! Yes being humble helps to keep us on the right path….however; life’s challenges can be so overwhelming at times that we can become distracted and stumble!! But if we turn away from the sin and ask for forgiveness than our God forgives us and remembers our sin no more…..It is only mankind and his self- righteousness that chooses to continue to pass judgement and impose a life sentence on a sin that we have been redeemed from….Not that sin does not have any life consequences and yes they should be paid according to the laws of the land, however, once a person who has turned from their sin and God pours out His grace on them…. You now will become the person who is in sin if you choose to pass judgement on them!! Some say pointing out a sin is for the purpose of wisdom and not judgement; However, Jesus Himself said “You who are without sin, cast the first stone” He was addressing the religious folks at the time, who were filled with their own self-righteousness rather than Christ’s righteousness. Then, there are some who say…We are to judge them by their fruits…Well there is a great difference between fruits and sin!! And yes producing good fruit (good things, a good spirit) is an important indicator that we are a mature Christian who are able to discern the difference; It does not in any way give us the right to judge sin…Only God Can Do That!!
Being Humble brings you into the awareness of our own imperfections within our soul…It does not keep us safe from the lures of the world or out of the reach of the adversary…it only gives us the advantage over them. We wouldn’t require faith if we didn’t need to overcome the obstacles in life…Even Jesus was tempted by the enemy, as were the apostles. So, often in life people who have one momentary lapse of judgement are abruptly stoned by their accusers and they will immediately turn your whole life into some sinister plot!! However, that is not who God is…He didn’t send is Son into the world to judge it, He sent His Son into the world to Save it!! And once He saves you…You now become a vessel of reconciliation and restoration!! Humility will always work toward restoration because having a humble heart is being in the heart of God.

Love & Blessings

Scripture Meditation
John 8:11 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives 2 Now early[in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them. 3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, 4 they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?” 6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear. 7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?”11 She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”
Matthew 7:16-20 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
Matthew 18:21-22 Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.
John 3:16-18 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Romans 5:19-21 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous. 20 Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, 21 so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

ENCOUNTERING LIFE: Jesus Manifest Presence

jesus-appearing
I was out for a walk…As I walked, I passed by many houses; some had very beautiful Christmas lights, adorned with colourful windows that revealed families watching Christmas shows together…Some houses, I could smell the wood burning in their fire places and I imaged how warm and cozy their house must be, some houses were partaking in the holiday season and I could hear the sounds of joy escaping from behind the bricked-in walls!! It was a nice to witness the pleasantries wrapped up inside the rooms of some family’s homes. Then I came to another home…there were no Christmas lights, nor sweet scent of a fire burning or sounds of joy, only shouts of a couple arguing and children crying in the back ground. My heart sank and tear fell from my eye, I stopped for a moment in front of their house to say a prayer for them….It is sad to know that in a season of such joy that some still do experience great turmoil… I continued my journey enjoying the fresh crisp fall air and listening to the rustling of the leaves beneath my feet. Then I came upon a church to which I decided I was going to sit down to take a rest for a few minutes…and ponder the things that I had encountered on my walk. It was dark and quite, I could hear the sound of the wind stirring around me and the movement of the branches on the trees…I looked up in to the night sky to see the brightly lit stars dancing, their essence seemed eternal.
It was then that God took be back to a moment in my life, it was like I was transported and I had crossed all space and time to re- encounter the event as it had unfolded the very first time…It was around this same time of year and I was about 11 years old…It was a cold night, I had on a little blue ski-jacket that was handed down to me…I had no gloves, no scarf and the only hat I had was the one that unzipped from inside the lining of the neck of the nylon jacket. I was in a church yard, similar to where I had stopped for my rest now. It was St. Nichols Church, which was a place of sanctuary that I often went to as a child…I had slept in that church yard many times before …but this night was different. I went over to the grass area, along the fence and I made a bed out of the fallen leaves. I tied up my nylon hood as tightly as I could and put my hands in my pocket to keep them warm…I lied down on the bed of leaves somewhat distraught and crying; I was asking God for His help!! I liked this church because it had a brightly lit cross on the top of it and it made me feel safe and warm…like I was never alone. The wind was howling on this dark night, the leaves were blowing all over and I was finally all cried out…so I drifted off into a deep sleep!! I am not sure how long I was asleep for but I began to feel a great warmth on my face, it was like the morning sun rising and shining down just on me…I was stirring into an awakened state and I remember thinking…it’s going to be a beautiful sunny day and I had a great sense of elation, But to my surprise, as I opened my eyes I found that it was still night time. I looked around wondering about where the light had come from…I thought maybe it was a cop car that pulled into the church yard and perhaps I should run and hide before they find me, but there were no cars in sight. My eyes were then drawn to the roof top of the church where the cross was positioned…It was glowing extra brightly and I was fascinated by its glow…then it just kept getting brighter and brighter. It was not the first time I had encountered the brightness from this light…for I had seen it once before. However this time the light grew and encompassed the night sky and then out of that light came a man…I could not really see his face, only the brilliance of it, but I knew that it was Jesus. He was in the light and for the first time I could feel what it felt like to be loved…purely and unconditionally!! He reached His hand out toward me and I could see the scar in the center of it. He then spoke into my heart not with words from His mouth but from His Spirit and said “Come to the Cross and I will save you” I reached out and took His hand and I felt the warmth of heaven all around me and go through me…I felt like I was finally at home, a place where I belonged…then He let go of my hand and vanished!! I looked all around me but could not see Him, and I looked back up to the cross but it had returned to its usual radiance. It was still very cold outside, but now I felt this incredible warmth in my heart and I knew that I was changed. I could not explain it; I only knew I was different. You see I did not grow up in church and I had no idea about the concept of salvation and that I was now saved!! I only knew that I just had the most incredible experience in my 11 years of life and I wanted more. For months after that I tried many times to climb up to that roof top to get to that cross again, but was unsuccessful. In my lack of knowledge I thought that if I reached the cross I could encounter Jesus again, not realizing that He now lived in me because I said yes and took His outstretched hand when He called me to the cross!! I wouldn’t come to understand that until many years into my adult life. However, from that day forward I knew that I would never again be alone and that one day I would return to my home in heaven!!
Although this wasn’t my first divine encounter with the heavenly realm, it was my first encounter with Christ, However, it certainly would not be my last…but I will save those testimonies for another time.
I am thankful that Christ is my heart and my life, His Spirit has comforted me through many valleys in my life and has imparted into me many great revelations and gifts. He is the friend who sticks closer than any other…. He is my foundation and my source…and I am thankful for the radiant cross from so many years ago…I hope that one day that St. Nicholas Church will light that cross again, so that others may see the light in the darkness.
My prayer for this season is that no one is without love and peace in their hearts and in their homes; that you assist those who are unable to provide for their own families and befriend those who are alone…..That you help bring the Spirit of Joy into dark places to turn someone’s night into a beautiful new day. May the Grace of God Be Upon all of Your Homes this Christmas Season and May God Bestow His Abundant Blessings upon Your Entire Family… May you remain in Good Health and Cheer for all the days of your Life… In Jesus Name, Amen!!

May God Bless You and Keep You in All Things Pertaining to Life and Godliness ~Sincerely Pastor Cindy

The Spirit Speaks ~Charity

Love the people

A few weeks back I had a Holy Spirit inspired dream…..A Spirit inspired dream is a dream in which heaven is speaking to you in the spirit realm through your dream. There are many different types of dreams, however when you encounter the Spirit realm it is quite a different experience than a normal dream. In the dream I was visiting my Pastor in a very beautiful small library that was filled with shelves of books and an antique desk…The room was overflowing with a sweet aroma and although the room attire was a dark wood there was an immense light coming in from somewhere releasing a great warmth into the room…Not the kind of warmth you experience from standing in the sun, but the heaven kind of warmth!…Knowing that you are in His Holy Presence. I was sitting across from my Pastor at his desk and we were talking about God’s word; the bible. He was reading from a very ancient document…like a scroll and God was speaking to us about its contents!! Although it was an in-depth conversation about many things, God was expressing one word very clearly “Charity” it was above every other written word, like it was jumping off the page!! I looked at my Pastor and asked what does God mean by charity?? My Pastor spoke to me and said He is talking to us and through us about Love!! Then I woke up…
I began to do some research on the word charity because I was still seeking further revelation of this word!! So I found the word in the Hebrew text and its translation is Agape (which I am sure many of you already know) Agape is the Divine Revelation of Love….It is from God, it is who He was before the foundation of the earth…Love is God and God is Love!! And through the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus, Agape was released into the earth. Then the Holy Spirit started speaking to me about how it is His Love that healed us. Yes, He bore our sin and sickness on His body, but it was only Agape that could hold all that darkness upon Him-self and regenerate it into light, love and life!! It was the greatest act of Charity that this world has ever known…And it is the healing source that the world needs now!! Even the whole earth is groaning for it…. Agape!!!
There are many archetypical aspects to this dream, like me speaking with my Pastor…It is actually in part me communing with God; anyone who represents “the cloth” in a dream is considered holy and is symbolic to God speaking through a holy vessel. Where the dream occurred in a library; which is significant because it is a placed filled with knowledge and represents the world and all it holds in it. The atmosphere or ambiance, the aroma and light shining over the dark wood in the library are indicative to the Holy Spirit, which is the living light in the world around us!! The significance of the ancient text or scroll and it being the word of God reveals that it is His word that builds the foundation of everything and is the authoritative source of all knowledge in the universe!! Although there are others, these are the main archetypes in the dream which all play into the revelation of its message!! However it was clearly a message about “Charity” and how God wants us to teach that charity isn’t just an act of giving but an act of being!! The world translates charity into a monetary value and believes that it is about just giving to the poor…which is important, however the poor in Gods eyes are those who are poor in spirit….. Separate from Him and are in need of His Charity!! His Son; given in the greatest act of Love, Agape!! It will be through “Agape” that Revival will find its way back into the hearts of Gods People and become the flowing vessel of light into the world!!
What is interesting about this is that shortly after the dream I started reading a book called “The New Kind of Love” by Dr. Kenyon and in the very beginning of the book he confirms what God was revealing to me in the dream and through the research and further communion that I had with His Spirit!! I believe this is a word for now!! It is the season for a great re-birth, even greater than the former Acts!! Also since my Pastor was part of the dream, I believe him to be part of Gods plan for this Re-Birth, otherwise He wouldn’t have chosen him to represent Him in my dream!! There will also be other churches and ministers of the gospel called to revival!! So stand in Charity….Stand in Love…Stand in Agape and remember to not lose your heart on the information highway of life but to stay true to the foundation to which allows the light to shine in you and through you!! For without the light of His Spirit; life is like a hollow vacuum consuming endless knowledge leaving you in a vast void.

SCRIPTURE MEDITATION:
1 Corinthians 13:1-4 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up
1 Corinthians 13:8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
1 Corinthians 14:1 Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.
1 Corinthians 16:14 Let all your things be done with charity.
Colossians 3:14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
1 Peter 4:8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

PRAYER ~Sending Loving thoughts to Paris

 Pray for Paris

O Lord, Our God, Our most precious and Holy Father; today our hearts are heavy and filled with much grief for the loss of the lives of so many from this senseless attack in Paris… Such devastation has hindered the freedom and movement in this nation!!! They have been paralyzed by fear and rendered into a state of lock-down…Heavenly Father we lift Paris and the Nation of France up to you and ask that you comfort them during this tragedy… Embrace those who are grieving and suffering from the pain of broken hearts for their loss of family, friends and loved ones!! Father we ask that you send your Holy Spirit to cover this nation and pour out your loving peace over them to heal their hearts and provide them with strength, wisdom and the power to overcome this attack of terror… We realize Heavenly Father that nothing can ease their loss or bring back their loved ones, but we also know that you are a loving and merciful God who cares for all of humanity and we thank you for hearing the cries of the people in these troubling times. Lord may they come together in unity and help one another through this time of devastation. May France rise to be a Stronger Nation and may those responsible for this attack be brought to justice by your hand Lord!!

In Your Name Jesus, We Pray!! Amen!!

“The Sleeping Giant” ~A Prophetic Word

Cindy Livingstone Ministries® Revivalist~Resurrecting God's Heart♥

spirit

Prophetic words have a creative force…They do not come from us but are spoken through us. The Holy Spirit has given us this gift so that we may release the plan and purpose of God into our churches, our communities, our world and every part of our daily lives. The Holy Spirit is all-knowing and when He places a word or a vision into our spirit it is so Gods plans may be brought forth from the heavenly realm to the natural realm. Our prayers are an ongoing dialog with heaven…We send our requests up and the Holy Spirit responds with what needs to happen in order for us to achieve Gods purpose. His response may come through the word, or He may place a vision/dream or word of wisdom into our spirit. By speaking forth the messages received into our spirit from heaven; we create the opportunity for…

EXCERPT FROM HEAVEN ~The Spirit Speaks on Miracles

For the past year The Holy Spirit has been speaking to me about the miraculous….He has been revealing many attributes of God’s Miracle working power and I hope to put them all in a book soon….Here is a short excerpt from one of my moments in the Spirit.

spirit man

The Holy Spirit is the deliverer of miracles…He recognizes both God’s creation and our misled illusions. He separates the truth from the false by His ability to perceive totally rather than selectively; as we in our human natural form have a tendency to do. We only need to surrender our wills to the process of His chosen application which allows Him to do the work through us.  He removes the deceptive illusion of any illness from us, and restores Gods creation back to its intended original state, because Christ already shed His Blood for us over 2000 years ago .  Illness is an illusion impressed upon God’s creation by the enemy and allowing the illusion to permeate in your mind, allows the deceptive illusion to take up residence in your body. God’s intention for us was to be born, to live out our purpose and lay-down to sleep; returning our spirits home to Him.
Illness is not part of God’s plan for us…It is the enemy who deceives us with the illusion that we are not well, so that he can mislead us away from our intended purpose and destination!! All miracles are delivered by the Holy Spirit…and all miracles are received through the revelation of the truth found in God’s Word.

Whatever your need is today, ask the Holy Spirit to rend the Heavens open and by that I mean to give you access to what the rulers of darkness are hiding from you, because God’s Kingdom is always open to us who have been sealed by His Holy Spirit.

Push back the illusion of the enemy’s veil and receive your blessing today!!

The UNIFIED VOICE ~The heart of Heaven

Cindy Livingstone Ministries® Revivalist~Resurrecting God's Heart♥

Unified

Recently I have been looking at the words “Shout to the Lord” and examining what it means to really shout out to our Heavenly Father. As a worshiper of God and a teacher/preacher of His word; I am always seeking new revelation. It was once said to me that I should not preach Gods word because my voice is too soft, even if I was shouting it would not be heard!  My first thought was; I wonder if they know about this invention called the microphone???  However, I just politely smiled, did not respond and walked away; I wasn`t about to be drawn into a negative debate over a trivial opinion. I know my God and if He needs my voice to be carried over any significant distance….He can cause the sound of it to echo for miles, I only need to open my mouth and speak.  

I was…
