On the Mountain with Jesus by Nina Keegan

Psalm 3:4 
I cried out to the Lord,
and he answered me from his HOLY MOUNTAIN

 I was reading today about the transfiguration on the mountain Matthew 9:2-12, I started realizing something about mountains and had a revelation from the Lord..
Jesus often took the disciples to either Mount Herman or Mount Tabor, a mountain was often associated with closeness to God and symbolized a readiness to receive his words. 

God had appeared to both Moses and Elijah on MOUNTAINS

Exodus 24:12-18 (NKJV)
12 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Come up to Me on the mountain and be there; and I will give you tablets of stone, and the law and commandments which I have written, that you may teach them.”

1Kings 19:11
11 Then He said, (to Elijah)"Go out, and stand on the mountain before the Lord.”

Coincidentally ,
Scripture talks about how MOUNTAINS CAN BE A SYMBOL FOR TRIALS..  and that they, through faith , prayer and declaration shall become level plains in our lives... yes mountains of adversity and strongholds can be cast into the sea if we have faith just the size of a tiny mustard seed! 

The Bible talks about how we should speak to our mountain and the mountain ( of adversity) shall be cast into the sea...

Rev 8:8
[ Second Trumpet: The Seas Struck ] Then thesecond angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was throwninto the sea, and a third of the sea became blood.

Zec 4:7 Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.

Mark 11:23
"Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.

The revelation I had is this: mountains symbolize two very different things in the Bible

God brings us through our mountains (trials) that need to become level Plains... that is where we are drawn so incredibly close to God, that's where we can see God's hand revealed.. , that's where He can oftentimes meet us in the pit ... 

On the other hand, the mountain top... high and lifted up, that's when we are so close to God, that's when we can hear clearly from God.. perhaps it is just a great image, a visual where we can see ourselves closer to God on the mountain tops having meetings with him like Moses and Elijah and witnessing the miraculous, high and lifted up above the naysayers down below. 

 "Many times through our mountainous trials… We can meet God on His mountain of victory!"

 When we are on our proverbial mountain top, elevated in the authority we have in Christ and in the light of God's revelation.. we can meet God to level those negative mountains that pop up in our lives, the trials, the tribulation, the angst, the worry and fear... all of the mountains that come to steal, kill and destroy, the bait of satan
that tries to devour us!

When I go back to that scripture about the transfiguration of Jesus, He took only Peter, James and John and led them up this high mountain and they watched as miraculously Jesus's appearance was brilliantly transformed…
 There were 12 disciples, do you ever wonder why only these three men were selected? Perhaps they were the only ones ready to completely understand and accept the great truth ...they were in the inner circle, they were among the first to hear Jesus's call..they were present at certain healings where others were excluded...I believe they were READY… I believe God is waiting on us to be ready.. sold out, available and obedient!

Luke 8:51
When he arrived at the house of Jairus, he (Jesus)did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John and James, and the child's father and mother.

The 3 had witnessed something amazing on the mountain of Transfiguration and were also told on the decent from the mountain, not to discuss what they had witnessed with anyone else… perhaps they were the only ones Jesus knew could handle such a miracle ...Jesus said this because they would not fully understand anything until Jesus had risen from the dead; only then would they realize that only through dying could Jesus show his victorious power over death and his complete authority to be King of kings,  Lord of lords… The disciples were not fully able to be powerful witnesses of God until they had grasped this as divine truth.

They did not have the Bible, they did not have God's revealed word, JESUS HAD NOT YET DIED AND RISEN..we have the scriptures that tell us about Jesus death and resurrection we have no excuse for unbelief.

We should never be afraid to confront evil (our mountains of adversity)  and to take our authority in Jesus on the mountain top! Jesus will always go with us, he will meet us on those mountain tops…we don't have to go on a search for Jesus like the disciples did.
We can meet Jesus high and lifted up on the mountain top closest to God… Where we can go when we are ready! What are you waiting for... go now.. lay down your fears, ask God to help your unbelief and meet him today..

I don't know about you but I want to be ready and willing for Jesus to lead me to the mountaintop and to receive great revelation of the mysteries of his divine will!

Eph 1:9
he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ,

We give God all glory and praise!
" God we ask for great knowledge and understanding that we will be ready and willing… We praise you and thank you for your wisdom and guidance into all truth in Jesus name we pray!"

Faith Moving Mountains
Matthew 17:20

And He said to them, "Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this MOUNTAIN 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

Psalm 125:2

As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the LORD surrounds His people From this time forth and forever.

Psalm 11:1

In the LORD I take refuge; How can you say to my soul, "Flee as a bird to your mountain;

Psalm 90:2

Before the mountains were born Or You gave birth to the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
Isaiah 54:10

"For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake, But My lovingkindness will not be removed from you, And My covenant of peace will not be shaken," Says the LORD who has compassion on you.

No More Delays.. by Nina Keegan

What is delaying your breakthrough… Is there something holding you back, a destiny robber, a delayer of promises.. A hindering spirit?

Daniel 10:10-14New Living Translation (NLT)

10 Just then a hand touched me and lifted me, still trembling, to my hands and knees.11 And the man said to me, “Daniel, you are very precious to God, so listen carefully to what I have to say to you. Stand up, for I have been sent to you.” When he said this to me, I stood up, still trembling.
12 Then he said, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your request has been heard in heaven. I have come in answer to your prayer. 13 But for twenty-one days the SPIRIT OF PRINCE, ( Delay) of the kingdom of Persia BLOCKED my way. 
Then Michael, one of the archangels,[b] came to help me, and I left him there with the spirit prince ( delay) of the kingdom of Persia.[c] 14 Now I am here to explain what will happen to your people in the future, for this vision concerns a time yet to come.”

My friends if you have been praying for something and you feel like your prayers have not been answered, it's time to start praying against the spirit of delay and for God to send angels to bind and hold back that spirit so that our prayers can answered...
Is that scripture not amazing? Such revelation…it says that Daniel's prayers were heard,...But the spirit prince(delay), was holding back and hindering his breakthrough… But then Archangel Michael was sent to bind that spirit so he could receive his breakthrough...!
I feel God is revealing new mysteries to us about how to pray.. God is faithful to his promises so he always lets us know what we need to know to receive our victory and so in the name of Jesus we declare that any pronouncement or decision causing delay in our lives and in our victories be overturned and overruled by the blood of Jesus in the courts of heaven! 

We decree right now that we have the full potential to overcome annihilate, paralyze and neutralize the spirit of delay by the blood of Jesus, and in the name of Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit!

We pray right now in the name of Jesus that our lives will move forward, no more delays, no more limitations,and that we will rule and reign in life over the spirit of delay!
 I thank you Father that we are now restored from all things that have been stolen from our lives through delay, we come right now into an agreement that all spirits of distraction and interruption will be halted from our lives and cease to exist.
We thank you that every stronghold be pulled down, that all curses causing delay be annihilated, that any negative words ever spoken over us that have paralyzed our victory be neutralized by the work of the cross in Jesus name!

We thank you Father that you would send angels on command as we pray to guide us to victory and to fight off and to hold back that spirit of delay! We ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom, revelation, counsel and supernatural understanding!
 We praise you God that you would open our spiritual eyes to see and our spiritual ears to hear.. we ask the Holy Spirit to help us discover and discern any workings of the spirit of delay operating in our lives and in the lives of our loved ones.
Restore any area of our lives concerning promises, prayers answered, godly desires and plans, hopes and destinies; and that we would have spiritual mental, social, and financial maturity and wisdom to be over comers in Jesus name.

We ask for breakthrough angels and restoration angels to work on our behalf. Make our paths clear and align us in proper balance through the knowledge of your love for us...
We bind any opened doorways that we might have given the spirit of delay an opportunity through fear, complaining, prayerlessness,sin, temptation, desire to give up, frustration, anxiousness, depression and unbelief!

You said Father that in an acceptable time you have heard us and you said Lord God that you will bring us victory on every side, that your grace is sufficient for us and that our strength is made perfect in weakness ..let the power of Christ rest on each one of us!

We thank you Father that in your strong nail scarred hands we place what the enemy meant for harm and we know there, in that place, in your grip, it can only be made good!
We love you and praise you in Jesus name… We give you all glory, holy holy holy, Lord God Almighty who was, and is, and is to come!
Thank you Father that you would expedite our victories and redeem the time and restore to each and every one of us everything that is been held up and delayed!
In Jesus holy name again we pray!

1 Thessalonians 2:18King James Version (KJV)

18 Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.

Hebrews 10:36-39New King James Version (NKJV)

36 For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:
37 “For yet a little while,
And He  who is coming will come and will not tarry.
38 Now the just shall live by faith;
But if anyone draws back,
My soul has no pleasure in him.”
39 But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.

“Let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily hinders our progress ...” (Hebrews 12:1b NLT)

God calls you what you are WAY BEFORE it happens... people will call you what you are after it happens…good or bad, true or untrue.. many times people's words " I told you so's" and declarations over our lives have STINGING POWER...many times we believe these lies in our lives and our lives begins to take on the meaning of the negative words we have believed including the negative words we have declared about ourselves...God's words have STAYING POWER! His words are lasting and true and have the power to overcome any negativity that's ever been spoken over us… But how many of us believe what the enemy is laying down over what the word of God says about our lives...?

God called Abraham the father of many nations... long, oh so LONG BEFORE it would ever happen, yet God spoke it.. so it happened! It made no sense what's so ever, that Abraham and Sarah, an elderly couple well beyond child bearing years would ever see God's words come to pass... How would He have one child let alone become the father of Nations? Even so... they still had to wait.. They had to wait for God's perfect timing…The kairos  timing of God is perfect.. He must prepare so many things behind the scenes that we will never even know about in order for God's vision to come to pass in our lives… But if GOD said it, He will do it ..make no doubt about it… God doesn't make mistakes! 
David was called to be a future King when he was just a mere shepherd boy..he wasn't even in the lineup of Jesses's  sons. They didn't even call him in the house to have a chance at consideration... and yet God knew exactly where he was…… no one could stop or lock out of the house what God had ordained for David ...And God knows where you are and he knows who has left you out of the lineup and who has deemed you unworthy!
David was Considered, simple, small and unworthy by his own father… Yet nothing could stop God's call on his life… God qualified him because David had a heart for God… And that gave God a springboard of faith from which He could do a mighty work... God needs obedience and God needs availability...then the sky is the limit in what God can accomplish with your life! God calls you blessed, successful, prosperous, highly focused, fearfully and wonderfully made, loved, qualified, skilled, righteous in him, worthy, and highly favored, healthy, and  talented .. 

He spoke these words ahead of time.. 

The list of who you are in Christ goes on and on… God called us these things before we were even born, He knit us together in our mothers wombs  for a purpose that only He knows… We are each unique in our call… You have talents and gifts that no one else does! No matter what negative things have been spoken over your life.. no matter who set limits and built the box of limitations that encapsulates you... GOD'S WORD IS THE ONLY TRUTH! What He says about you is the truth for your life… And there is a plan for your life that no one can steal unless you believe the lies the enemy has laid before You...
It's time to abandon every," you will never amount to anything"… "You're not qualified, you're not smart enough, good enough, pretty enough, talented enough... " lies !!!  Bury those lies in the sea of the abyss and cast them away through your authority in Jesus… Go back to what the word says about you… The words God penned with such love before you ever lived a single day… Just like the words that were spoken over and over again in the Bible over Abraham, Joseph, David, and many others… Those words when believed by you, by the renewing your mind and by you choosing to believe them,
will result in the most brilliant plan steeped in the fullness of God's pure joy for your life… Everything else is just a consolation prize… Receive all that God has in store for you, be determined to get everything he has planned for your life, and be determined that no one and nothing can come against God's word ...God's peace.. God's joy.. go get the victory even if it doesn't seem true right now .. victorious words have already been spoken over your life. They have already been declared. The outcome is  already determined.... Live with that life!!! 
Live what God has said about you ahead of time..
So like Abraham start declaring what God said no matter how far fetched it seems… Because God does his best work in a "that's impossible" situation!

You Are Valuable

I am the Creator and you are my creation. I breathed into your nostrils the breath of life (Genesis 2:7). I created you in my own image (Genesis 1:27). My eyes saw your unformed substance (Psalm 139:16). I knit you together in your mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13). I know the number of hairs on your head, and before a word is on your tongue I know it (Matthew 10:30Psalm 139:4). You are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14).
