Dad: Do you wanna do this, Z?
Me: Nope ... I'll NEVER do that.
About a year later
Dad: Do you wanna do this, Z?
Another year later (2016)
Dad: You wanna do it now?
Me: Uh, unh ... and quit asking me.
Me: WHAT IN THE #$&* ARE YOU DOING?!
Dad: You wanna do this, Z?
Z: Do I have a choice at this point?
Me: Doing it.
He asks nicely, but it's a setup. If you don't do it, and He needs you to do it, and you've told Him you'll obey anything, you've gotta do it or get spanked.
It is written: For The LORD disciplines those He loves; and He punishes each ones He accepts as His child. ~ Hebrews 12:6
5.17.2016 — In the dream I went to buy something that was supposed to be 80 cents but I was charged $7.77, and when I got the receipt it was paid for by someone else's credit card; an American Express. Then when I turned to leave, the walkway to the cashier was disappearing and turning into a country road and a river was beginning to cover it. I turned to the sales lady and kept yelling at her for help. I yelled 7 times, "Shmitah! Shmitah! Shmitah! Shmitah! Shmitah! Shmitah! Shmitah!" The last time was long like the final blast at Jericho.
Interpretation: As I wrote this dream in my journal Holy Spirit began to reveal it's meaning. We're in a closing season of double portion debt cancellation because this shmitah or sabbath year is coming to and end. Every 7th or sabbath year (shmitah year) debts are cancelled. This is why debts get removed from credit reports after 7 years; this practice originated with God. But, it's a double portion year because it's also Jubliee; the 50th year is when debts are cancelled and property is returned to its original owners. This is a great time to recover all. As someone who was laid off and lost everything I'm very excited for this season and am thankful that God reminded me to pursue what's available to me.
Let's unpack the dream elements a little more. The purchase increasing from 80 cents to $7.77 is a picture of debt - you buy something for one amount but interest causes you to pay more. Seven represents completion and rest and the repetition tells me my season of debt is completely over, paid in full. The card being an AMEX means there's no limit. An AMEX is the card of cards and Yeshua is The King of Kings and Lord of Lords and He's providing for me.
The walkway to the cashier's counter disappearing and being covered over speaks of the window for this supernatural provision closing. God has a calendar and His own timing laid out in The Bible for us and it's our own fault if we don't honor it. When I awoke I laughed that I thought the cashier's name was Shmitah and that I was yelling it like a maniac, but I immediately realized what I was saying. I was ringing the alarm that the time for supernatural debt cancellation is almost up. This year 5776 on The Biblical calendar concludes at the end of September/beginning of October 2016. Yes, supernatural provision is always available with God, but this is a season when all you have to do is covenant by faith and it's yours. It doesn't require days, weeks or months of praying during this time because He already decreed by law thousands of years ago that supernatural debt cancellation would occur during the shmitah and during Jubilee. We're in this double portion season right now!!!
If you haven't asked for the blessing, it's time to get on it quickly. This is one of those instances where many people don't know The Bible, don't believe it and are totes missing God's timing. So many people in this nation are debt-ridden and they don't have to be. God doesn't want us in debt, and The Word states that throughout. If you read this and don't act, satan has you right where he wants you ... living in doubt and perishing for lack of knowledge.
My teaching is $5 and in it I lay out what God said in The Bible about the shmitah and Jubliee in a clear and concise fashion, and if you have ears to hear you'll reap the harvest He promises.
I'm sharing this dream with you because God has already supernaturally taken care of my debts. I haven't purchased anything on credit since being laid off in 2009 - not gas, a bottle of lotion, plane ticket or anything else. What I'm seeking in this season is the return of property, and I'm excited to recover all.
"He said the wealth of the wicked gets stored up for the righteous. Is that you? Are you righteous? Is God's way of doing and being right your heart's desire?"
LISTEN: Someone who's perishing - at least in some areas because they're works minded not faith minded - for lack of knowledge tried to tell me there's nothing I can do or have to do to receive from God because He loves me and that is not Biblical. All throughout the Bible God says, "Be like Me! Be like Me! Serve like Me! Honor Me! Trust Me! Love Me! Talk to Me! Ask Me!" Those are all verbs, verbos, action words.
According to this logic, if I didn't have to do anything or there was nothing I could do my behavior wouldn't matter and nothing would be classified as sin. I wouldn't even have to believe in God and I could still live a life full of miracles, signs, wonders, healings and supernatural provisions simply because He loves me. Not to mention Yeshua wouldn't have had to die if being in relationship with God wasn't required for me to go to heaven. Matter of fact, satan wouldn't have even been cast out of heaven; he'd still be there because of God's love.
Call me a liar if you want, but that hasn't been my experience. I've ALWAYS believed in God's love and yet I lived a mediocre existence for more than 30 years. I believe, and I could be wrong, what she meant was ... I don't know. I can't for the life of me figure out where in the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory she got that from. If you see or understand something in that bit of logic, please enlighten me in the comments below. But it sounds pretty foolish to me.
In Revelation is for Elevation I challenge people who don't believe they have to participate to receive from God to not go to work for two weeks straight and instead sit on the couch watching tv (if you can afford to pay for it) with your feet up and then count all the money that falls into your lap from heaven while you're not producing. If God loves you and because of love there's nothing you could or have to do, it's not a risk to take me up on this challenge.
We wouldn't even have to pray' y'all. And that's what I do. That's my life. What would I do with myself if I didn't pray? Half my day would be empty.

Scripture: 1 Samuel 18:3 (The Voice™) And Jonathan made a covenant with David because he loved him as he loved himself.
Observations: This immediately brings to mind several things – our Messiah Yeshua, who instructed us to love others as we love ourselves, how He loves The Church and gave Himself for her and that the entire Bible is a record of, invitation to and prophetic picture of Dad’s covenant with us.
As with all covenant relationships agreement and ... READ MORE.
God increase you exceedingly, loved ones!
