Awkwardness

Sitting still in a room

Unsure of what to say, or if anything needs be said.

Tension so thick you can breathe it,

But so thin that you can’t feel it.

Do you see me?

Do I matter?

Is it just me who sits here and wonders?

Or are we both just playing this awkward game?

John R.A. Harper

 

WORD KILLING

My words are slick, swift, and quick

They will tear you down before you lick

The food off your plate, breathe some air or even anticipate.

My words are quick, sick, and oh more thick

Than the arctic ice that floats,

But when it comes to choosing words

It’s easier to just come out the throat

Rather than thinking twice to see if it’s right for the moment or the time.

As in right now when my main goal is just to make these words rhyme

Without reason or thought I write this poem

Like the energizer bunny I just keep going.

Be careful what you do to me

Because my words are more deadly

Than a silver bullet in a gun

Because you can dodge a bullet but my words you can’t out run.

Be you Usain or insane you’re in range

To get your feelings broke

Forget what you heard,

Words are the number 1 killer

Take more lives than strokes.

People use them vicariously, precariously, unwillingly, uncaringly

Sending people to early graves

It seems like word killing is the hottest rage.

John R.A. Harper

 Ephesians 4:29
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Divine Encounter

Why is an encounter with GOD needed at the beginning of our walk with GOD?

Isaiah 55:8-9 (NIV)

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

Jeremiah 17:9-10 (NIV)

The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? “I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.”

Romans 3:23 (KJV)

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

Romans 8:5-8 (NIV)

Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.

What Time?

I want to come to visit my people but many of them are on a spiritual vacation; and some are spiritually asleep; and some spiritually dead.  And when I come, it will catch them unaware, like the five foolish virgins. (Matthew 25:1-13)

Pure

Through the foolishness of preaching, the incorruptible seed of God is sown into a man – causing him to become a new creation in Christ.

Take heed to the message you are bringing. Don’t allow false gospels to enter and become mixed with the pure gospel message that brings the Kingdom of God.

Don’t be hood-winked into thinking that any message will do. The Word of God is pure.

(Read John 3:1-3)

Be Careful of Scratching Itching Ears – Wanting the Truth of God

In a dream, I was standing outside the church. There was a woman inside the church on the phone.  She was talking to somebody about how she was going to destroy me. My daughter ran out the church to warn me that the woman was going to put poison in my water.  Then the woman came out the church. Although knowing what my daughter had just said, I still greeted her with a “hi”. She threw the poison in my mouth. (God had put a hedge of protection in my mouth.) She got excited because she thought she had destroyed me. She was waiting for me to die. I was praying in the spirit, “Lord God, don’t let none of the residue go down my throat”, and He didn’t.

Interpretation of dream:

The woman on the phone – God has the wheat and the tare together. She being on the phone represented a direct line. You have to watch as well as pray who you allow in your spiritual ear. Beware of the wolf that’s dressed in sheep’s clothing. Warning comes before destruction. Don’t find it strange who will allow the enemy to use them. Don’t forget what Job’s wife told Job, curse your God and die. Don’t forget David’s wife told him, it don’t take all that. Don’t forget Peter who denied Jesus. Find it not strange, it could be your own child, for He said in the last and evil days, daughters would be against mothers, and sons against fathers and fathers against sons.  We see the signs. Water represents the Word, the Spirit. Be careful whose well you are drinking from. Make sure it’s not contaminated. Make sure that there’s an anointing with the word that you’re receiving. Gifts come without repentance, but the anointing will destroy the yokes. So, be careful what you receive and what you say.

(Prophetess Ehmeiah)
