(Continued from prior videotape)

...Loneliness comes after that. I love this reading, because the Lord gives me loneliness, when He's going to come to me and speak to me. "I will not leave you comfortless. I will come to you." You'll call to the Lord and the Lord will answer. You'll cry, and He shall say, 'Here I am. And since you are precious in my sight, and you have been honorable, I have loved you. I am with you and will keep you in all places where you go and will bring you again to this land. I will not leave you until I have done that which I have spoken of.'

Now, this is interesting. We got this about 25 years ago, when we were here, in this area, in northern New Mexico, and the Lord sent us out of New Mexico. I remember Him telling us 'that I will bring you here again into this land.' I remember that. We got this reading when we were seeking Him about leaving. So we knew that we would be coming back to New Mexico at some point in the future. Some of these things really stick in your mind.

Long Life is another one, and it has to do with being prudent and teaching the right things. 'The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head.' 'With him is wisdom and strength. He hath counsel and understanding.'

'Oh, Lord. You've taught me from my youth? And I have declared your wondrous works.'

'Now, also, when I am old and grey-headed, O God, forsake me not, until I have shown your strength to this generation and your power to everyone that is to come.'

'Lord, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am.'

It's beautiful! And it's definitely for me. It talks about teaching, and walking in the Lord's ways, and using wisdom.

Brotherly Love. That's kind of an obvious one. I'll get this one about my husband. If I'm being a little selfish or protective of my time, because I feel overburdened - (to herself: Well, there's no excuse for it) - the lord will give me Brotherly Love. So, if Ezekiel says, 'Hey, you want to watch a holy movie tonight?' and that may be the last thing I want to do, but if He gives me Brotherly Love, I'll lay down whatever my agenda was, and I'll watch the movie with him. This is an important one, because a lot hinges on brotherly love. The Lord looks to see how we take care of others, and how we give of ourselves, because He's constantly giving us Grace and Love, and filling us with His presence, and He expects us to pour that out on other people. So, when we get Brotherly Love, it means 'Lay down your agenda, and take care of this soul that I've put before you. Love your brother as you love yourself. Now that may mean some self-sacrifice at that moment.

And here's Ezekiel's favorite, God's Love.

'For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, and whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. As a young man marries a virgin, so shall your maker marry you. As the Bridegroom rejoices over the Bride, so shall thy God rejoice over you.'

Isn't that beautiful? That's his favorite. For us, that's a confirmation. We'd ask, 'Lord, we'd like to take a drive to Taos Canyon or the Ski Valley, where it's really beautiful, and just go for a walk?' We'll seek the Lord and we'll make sure that it's in His Will. That we're not wasting His time, and He'll give us this beautiful reading - God's Love. Then, we know that we have His approval and His blessing to use His time that way.

Lust? Oh, I hate that one. Now, Lust for us does not a sexual thing at all! It means 'to desire something inordinately.'

'Submit yourselves to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you.'

'Abstain from fleshly lusts.'

That could easily be about food for me. Cream cheese coffeecake. Mmm (a small laugh, as she recalls it). Hey, Ben and Jerry's ice cream, too! (Another small laugh) Oh, and they've got something really wicked now, called Magnums. (Laughing as she speaks) They're like dark chocolate with dark chocolate inside, and a dark chocolate coating on the outside, and chocolate nibs crunched into the crust of it. It is outrageous chocolate! Just outrageous! That's only rarely for a treat. That's not something we do every day.

If I ask the Lord if it's time to go to the store, because I've got a list building, and I get Lust, our money in the world, I say, 'forget it. I'm not going.' We can lust over different things. You can lust over a car; you can lust over clothing; you can lust over a position. Any place where there's really strong desire - any place like that - you're prone to lust, and that's something that overtakes your life. It completely blinds you to reason and to God's Will. It completely overtakes you, until you've got to have it. And that's the truth, guys. If you get into that place, you need prayer. In fact, pray the Binding Prayer, and confess your weakness to the Lord; ask Him to protect you. That's a big one!

For those of you, who still have very strong hormones, you can figure that out pretty easily.

Even under Lust, '... they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These are they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. But you, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.'

'Walk in the Spirit' - Galatians - 'and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary the one to the other: so that you cannot do the things that you would.'

So, if I'm at the store, and I go by the ice cream aisle, and I'm tempted to get ice cream, I'll probably pass it by. Because the Lord will bring the scripture to mind, 'but make no provision for the flesh,' and if I don't really think that I'm going to need ice cream, then I just avoid it. It happens at times when your blood sugar falls. Have you ever noticed that? When something happens, and there is a lot of stress, your blood sugar comes crashing down and you crave something sweet. But I don't like to keep these things on hand, because they are a temptation.

Lying. I get this one a lot. This one I get when I've got a lying spirit, who is trying to start a conversation with me. I'll be seeking the Lord, getting ready to make a message for you guys, and ready to receive a message from the Lord, and I'll get some false starts. I'll use The Bible Promise Book, binding a lying spirit from the onset. 'In the name of Jesus, I bind the lying spirit off of this book. I'll only receive wisdom from the Holy Spirit.' Then I'll pray, 'Holy Spirit, reveal to me, is this you speaking to me?' If I open to Lying, then I know I've got a lying spirit.

You know, once you've learned to listen in the Spirit, you can hear all kinds of things you don't want to hear. It's just like having regular hearing. You may be listening to a symphonic piece or something like that on the radio, and people are talking in the background. You hear both. You hear the good and the bad, because you have that skill of being able to hear. It's the same in the spirit realm, as you learn to hear the Spirit, there's the 'other company' that talks in the spiritual realm, that you don't want to listen to. That's the reason why we're so careful with discernment. I don't think that we have ever put out a message that we didn't first discern, using the Bible Promises, both Ezekiel and I, because we didn't want to deceive you, and we didn't want to say something in the name of the Lord that was not from the Lord. Therefore, Lying is an important one for us.

'If a false witness rises up against any man, to testify against him,' that is bad news! 'And the judges shall make diligent inquisition, and behold, if the witness be a false witness, and has testified against his brother, then shall you do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother.' If I get this one, that's another red flag that this is not the Lord; or that this person is not telling me the truth; or have you been honest about everything?'

Marriage. When I get that one, it has to do with listening to my husband; I'll be in discernment, and I'll not know exactly what the Lord is trying to say, so I will engage Ezekiel. If I get marriage, then I know that Holy Spirit is going to give Ezekiel the answer. All I have to do is pray, and ask him to help me discern, and he's going to have the wisdom that I need from Holy Spirit. I really felt like I needed to take time doing this with you guys, so that you would have an understanding of how these different Bible Promise readings can possibly relate to you. For example, 'Drink waters out of your own cistern and running waters out of your own well.' Sometimes, if we ask the Lord if we should listen to a certain prophet, we may get this scripture under the Marriage reading. So, in your case, if you were inquiring if you should go cross-town, to a service, where this prophet was in town, and you got Marriage, you might be wondering, 'What is that for? Why did I get Marriage?' Particularly, if you are not married. Or, perhaps you are married, but there's nothing going on with your husband, so you're wondering, 'What in the world is this about?' Well, if you look down the page there, it says, 'Drink waters out of your own cistern and running waters out of your own well,' and that may be the rhema for you about the situation; that you've got what you need. You really don't have to go across town to listen to someone else or 'drink water from their well.' We've had it to mean that before. Both Ezekiel and I have encountered that.

However, it could also mean, 'Spend time with your spouse.' I've had times when this has come up. Every time I when I open up The Bible Promise Book, Marriage came up. The reason it did is because Ezekiel was going through some interior things that he was not sharing with me, and he was hurting, and I needed to drag it out of him, so to speak. The Lord was trying to tell me that there's something going on with him that you need to be attentive to.

'Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands.' Don't we love that scripture? (Laughing) Oh, I just love that scripture. Oh, and this one:

'Husbands, love your wives even as Christ also loved the Church and gave himself for it.' Yes, I like that one better!

'Men ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loves his wife loves himself.' Ezekiel is a good husband. That's how he is.

'Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord. And husbands love your wives, and be not bitter against them.'

'And husbands, dwell with them, according to knowledge, giving honor unto your wife, as unto the weaker vessel, as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers may not be hindered.'

You see, our prayers can be hindered by the way we treat our spouses. In fact, just recently the Lord corrected me on that. The hot weather was getting to me, and I was getting impatient, and a little gruff, and I was not my normal, sweet self with Ezekiel, and the Lord came back and called me on it. He said, 'This is not pleasing to me, because I live in him, and when you don't honor him, you're not honoring me.' I repented. This just happened recently.

It's a tendency for us, in marriage, to start taking each other for granted. Then recall a time when you didn't have each other, and you were still looking for your soulmate - your spouse - and you were so lonely, and that will help you in present time to appreciate what you have more. These are little foxes that get into marriages and destroy them. Those little nattering things, those inconveniences. The War of the Windows. Yep! I tend to be hot, and he tends to be cold. As a result, we have what we call 'The War of the Windows.' I'll walk out of the recording studio, and the windows will be nice and open, and breezy, and airy, and he'll come back here to do something, so he'll close the windows. So, I'll wait until he walks out, and then I'll open the windows. However, I opened the kitchen windows, too, to get a cross-draft, and, lo and behold, I go in the kitchen, and those windows are shut. Yep! (Laughing) The Wars of the Windows.

Those things can get on your nerves and can wear you down, and destroy charity and love, and you begin to get irritated with each other. Charity covers a multitude of sins, so we need to be charitable with one another. When I get Marriage or Brotherly Love, I start thinking, 'Uh oh, I need to start paying more attention to this. I need to see what this is about.' My husband is needing more of my attention.

Meekness comes after that. How Beautiful. I love Meekness. I get that when the Lord is warning me that my pride is beginning to swell again.

Mercy is one of my favorite readings, because it means 'I've forgiven you, and I'm going to show you my mercy.' You're going to receive mercy. I got this about Yellowstone; after we finished watching this movie, 'Supervolcano,' or 'Yellowstone,' or whatever it was. It was a real dramatic movie about Yellowstone, where the whole United States was just ruined. I went to the Lord about it, and I asked him, 'Lord, is this going to happen?' And I got Mercy, so I knew even when that film came out years ago, that the Lord was not just going to allow Yellowstone to destroy this country. Then, when he was more pointed about it, he brought me a message about it to share with you, about the things that would be happening. That's when I knew that, although he had given me Mercy before, He brought it to light and actually explained how He was going to handle the magma from Yellowstone - that it was going to seep out of the earth, there was going to be an explosion, but that it wouldn't be anything like 'Supervolcano.' Then there would be a lot of fissures, where the lava would come forth and let off the pressure that way. Mercy was the word He gave me that time.

Here's one of my least favorite ones -- Money. 'Don't labor to be rich. Cease from your own wisdom. Why will you set your eyes upon that, which is not, for riches certainly make themselves wings, and fly away, as an eagle toward heaven.'

'Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high-minded, nor trust in their riches, but trust in the living God, who gives everything to enjoy; That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.'

'Don't store your riches on earth; store them in heaven, where moths and dust cannot corrode.'

Money is a hard one. If I get that, and I need something from the store - or think I need something - I'll ask, 'Lord, can I have printer ink?' Of course, it's at a time when we don't have money for ink. I may get Money, and it's basically saying, 'You're going to have to do without it for now.' When you get Money, it's a reminder not to go out to the store. Be happy with what you have. Don't be searching for more.

Don't focus on that. Don't long for that. It's a trap!

'They will cast their silver in the streets, and their gold will be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them on the day of the wrath of the Lord: nor shall it satisfy their souls, neither their bowels: because it is the stumbling block of their iniquity.'

Money, money, money. That is a serious warning, guys. When you get Money, that's a serious warning to triple-check your motives and necessities...or what you consider to be necessities.

Obedience. 'Yes, I've set before you this day life and good, and death and evil;' When I get Obedience, it's almost always a confirmation of something that came before it. In other words, 'I told you to do such-and-such. Please obey.' Obedience is very important. If you get Obedience, then the Lord is definitely trying to get your attention, to obey what He has told you in the past. Obedience is a very important reading! Very important!

Parents' Duties. I always take that as 'Teaching,' because my children aren't here.

'Showing to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, His strength, and the wonderful works, that He has done.'

We'll get Parents' Duties when we're sick. We wonder, 'Why am I sick? Have you allowed this, Lord, as a punishment?' If we open to Parents' Duties, we'll know that it is Simon's Cross. We are being given a suffering to carry for the Lord, for the gospel to reach people, and for hearts to be softened. Parents' Duties is a real good one for us. It really tells us what the nature of the situation is.

The other thing Parents' Duties can signify is if there is something you need to instruct someone on, and you haven't done it. For example, if you haven't corrected your children on something, or if you haven't provided for them in some way, and the Holy Spirit's been nudging you to do so, you can get Parents' Duties.

Patience is beautiful. It means 'Yes, I'm going to give it to you, but you'll have to wait.' I would rather get that than anything else. It's better than being told that you're not going to get something. Patience is a beautiful one.

It also says, 'Count it all joy when you fall into diverse temptation. The trying of your faith works patience.'
