                                        JERICHO DAILY (THE BOOK)     Available Now!

       Since I began writing this blog the Lord began ministering to me about the soul deliverance and restoration process.  He began by impressing upon me to return to some Holy Spirit basics, starting with praying in the spirit in other tongues with interpretation, as described extensively in 1 Cor Chapter 14.  This is our direct link to the Lord Jesus as he stands at the right hand and intercedes for us.  He sent us another Comforter, Who dwells with us and is in us and leads us and guides us into all the truth.  As Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, then it follows that the Holy Spirit, Who testifies not of Himself but of the Lord, is leading us into the words that the Lord has to say about our specific situations, tests and trials.  The Bible says that when we pray in tongues in the spirit we are not praying to men, but to God. We are praying the mysteries of our hearts straight up to heaven where the Lord is at the right hand of the Father.  The Lord will respond by ministering directly to us through the Holy Spirit and telling us how to solve those mysteries.  Our part is to pray that we may interpret those responses into words that we can understand.  Think of it as a tuning process by which we are better able to hear exactly what the Lord wants us to do.
       This is a brief overview of this method of prayer.  I would recommend this to any believer who has an earnest desire to go deeper and deeper with the Holy Spirit.  It is at once liberating and empowering.  As you grasp this concept and put it into practice it will truly change your life.  Precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little there a little.  (Isa 28:10)  The Lord began to minister to me daily at length by this process and the depth of my understanding of the soul deliverance process grew rapidly.  In time, as I studied the Scriptures pertaining to it, I began to identify this operation of the Spirit in my life as "personal prophecy."  Before long it became apparent that the daily manifestations were intensifying and the Lord filled me with the desire to write a book detailing this aspect of the Holy Spirit's ministry.  What follows is the introduction to that book.  It is now available through the link contained within the cover image on every page of this blog.  Glory to God for all the mighty works He has done in my life!

Introduction

My new name is Jericho Daily, although quite honestly I feel that describes my growth process more than it describes me.  The LORD God already has new names set aside for all the saints, waiting to be revealed. [Rev 2:17, Rev. 3:12]  This is both an incentive and illumination of the path He has prepared for us; encouragement to stay the course.  I like the name Jericho Daily quite well: it is all at once a reminder of a great victory for Israel; a truly extraordinary strategy (which seems to be the LORD’s way of being and doing everything – extraordinary); and a process by which the mind is renewed.

Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

He told me this refers to the continual, continuous process of tearing down strongholds that prevent man from having a proper relationship with Him.  That, to me, is what Jericho Daily means.  We are not to allow the world to mold us, we are to receive the shaping of the Word of God that transforms us in His image, and then in turn to mold and shape the world around us according to His original plan and purpose for mankind.  But I’m getting a little ahead of Him.  Let’s back up and do this decently and in order, just the way He likes it.  And let’s have some fun with it too, He likes that even more.  After all, He created fun.  Good, clean fun.

He renamed me about two years ago, as part of His “calling those things that be not as though they are” plan for my life.1 Not that the process hadn’t already started, it was just His way of impressing it upon my mind that we were well on our way.  I have to admit, at that point I was focused on the pain and my soul was locked on the rearview mirror.  Here’s a heartfelt suggestion straight from Him through me for anyone who really wants to walk closely with Him: get your focus off of the rearview and pick up His mirror.  Learn to hear what He says and do, hear what He says and do, hear what He says and do.  Open your face and see His glory in there and be changed from glory to glory even as by the Spirit of the Lord!  When you get closer to Him it won’t be darkly so often anymore and it will be more face to face.

James 1:25 But whoso looks into the perfect law of liberty, and continues therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

2Co 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

1Co 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

Look at the promises He made to Abram [Abraham] and Jacob [Israel] and Simon [Peter].  Sure they all had to go through some things.  As soon as you’re born you start going through some things!  Wouldn’t you rather go through them with the help and support of the One who made all things!?2 What an honor!  What a pleasure!  Praise the LORD!

As you read these pages you will often see this line identifying words directly from the Lord to me: PERSONAL PROPHECY.  This is the foundational principle of this heavenly communication method, as described in 1 Corinthians Chapter 14 and pinpointed in the following Scripture:

1Co 14:13 Wherefore let him that speaks in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret.

This is a key to unlocking a fuller manifestation of the power that God desires to impart to you through the Holy Spirit Who dwells in you and is with you. As you start to tap into this tool the Lord will move in powerful ways in your spirit and reveal the mysteries of His will for your life and how you fit into His plan for the ages. The interpretations I have included here are more generally related to this book and what His desire is for my life, yet I feel that they pertain to you in so far as they will demonstrate how He reveals rhema directly to each believer, and will flow into your life as you open up to this vital energy source.[John 16:13]  Therefore the specific words that I have written will pertain to you only as far as they help you to release your mind from restrictions and really allow Him to help you interpret Scripture for yourself on a personal level.

In part this book is equipping for spiritual warfare.  More importantly though, it is equipping to have a more meaningful and rewarding relationship with your Creator.  That has been His plan and purpose all along.  That is how we are to carry forward His perfect will into the eternal ages.  We cannot ignore the warfare, but it is far more important to keep our eyes on the rewards that He has to offer us as we come through the fire and water.  Give Him all the praise.  Give Him all the honor.  Give Him all the glory.  What a wonderful plan He has for the ages to wrap up all this mess in the present and move on into His glorious future.  Some day all of this will be waters gone by.  Life will be brighter than noonday.  Darkness will become like morning.

Job 11:16-17 Because thou shall forget thy misery, and remember it as waters that pass away: And thine age shall be clearer than the noonday; thou shalt shine forth, thou shall be as the morning.

The book of Job is the oldest of the Old Testament.  Yet here is His promise right from the start: I will wipe away all the tears.  You will be My people, and I will be your God.  Hallelujah!  All the way from the ageless timeless past right on through to Revelation and beyond into ageless timeless eternity.  The Ancient of Days is on the throne, and He will never fail us nor forsake us.  Glory!

INTRODUCTION FOOTNOTES:

1 Rom 4:13-17

For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.  For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect:  Because the law works wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression.  Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,  (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before Him Whom he believed, even God, Who quickens the dead, and calls those things which be not as though they were.

2 John 1:1-5

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made.  In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
