LSOF: Deeperstilled…

Over a year ago, I attended ” Living Proof Live” with Beth Moore.

I got to meet some wonderful people, hear a good word, and just bask in the presence of God.

But my heart did not attend that conference that day.

It’s easy to get wrapped up in emotion of things.

It’s easy to sing songs, and shout out a few “amens” and ” hallelujahs”, but all of all of it is just

” going through the motions” unless your relationship with Jesus is solid.

Mine at the time was not.

A warning to you dear friends; you can be ” going through the motions” and never realize you are doing it!

I did however have a good friend reach out to me. Georgia Jan was standing behind me at the conference. We prayed together, and she told me to ” get out” of the religion that I was entangled in. I can’t believe to this day that I even told her about it. I wrote a letter to Living Proof telling them of my experience and how I was a changed person after the conference and blah,blah, blah.

So I look back on that letter, and that prayer time with Jan, and in my heart I knew

I had lied to myself, and to them.

It wasn’t a lie I recognized though, it was a lie that made me instead just quit blogging, and ignoring facebook messages, and

text messages from my siestas.

Eventually, I did fall back into the religious cult I was into before.

Because my way out wouldn’t be through a conference, or a prayer with a friend…

My way out was only through GRACE alone, and I think this bares repeating,

Beth Moore is amazing, and my friend Jan is amazing..and all those from my church who told me to stay away from the religious cult I heard them speak…but inside I didn’t understand what was going on from the inside or the outside of me.

It wasn’t until I was on the floor curled up in tears that I saw Jesus again, face to face; but getting to that point was a long journey.

Deeper Still was an seriously phenomenal conference, but it had nothing to do with Kay, Priscilla, Beth or my siestas and friends I saw while I was there…

I received a very sweet phone call a few days before the conference, and it so blessed me.

I heard Ephesians 3:20-21 in my heart after the call.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

The funny thing was, I heard the verse, but I was so used to hearing it and saying it, that I lost focus on what the true message of it was!

I gave a list already of the people I got to meet and see at the conference, but let me just tell you that it was as if God had planned a special day for me, as in like a spiritual party to show me how proud He was of me for sticking with it, after hitting rock bottom a good 7 months ago.

” God’s word is alive and active and sharper than any two-edge sword” OH AMEN TO THAT!

Priscilla got up to speak, and I am all thinking to myself, ” Oh this will be a good message.” And I can say to you now how much that was an underestimate! God BLEW me away with her message, which interesting enough didn’t have to do with a few verses here and there from Ephesians but EPHESIANS 3:20-21!!!!

Ya, I was a bit floored, and I felt those tears rise up in my eyes.

Oh Jesus, and your surprises:) I love you!

At the end of the conference it was the sweetest thing that God did for me. I of course had already spent sometime chatting with Shelly and Jan, and seeing many other wonderful people; prayed with my friend Alli….just so much good time.

But meeting Beth Moore, that was a very special moment for me. It was almost as if God was standing right there saying to me, ” Okay, Angie, I have one more thing I would like to bless you with today.” When she processed who I was, I saw her face light up, and if I wasn’t in shock I probably would have cried. I watched so many other people reach out to hug her neck, but she was the one to reach out and hug mine. Something I will never forget.

Thank you for the wonderful presents Jesus:)

I don’t know how many of you went to the conference with some uncertainty of what God had for your life, or if you even knew Jesus at all, but I can tell you if your heart is 100% solid for Him, and you don’t worry about what others have to say about the faith you have, and let me just place emphasis on ” YOUR FAITH” then God will bless you and have a Bible verse stalk you to a conference you attend.

I loved Kay and Beth’s messages too. Beth’s message on ” Spiritual Discernment” really hit home for this girl, because I have been THROUGH it.

We have to love with smart eyes, we can’t just let ourselves trust everyone on the planet or we will get hurt. Even if someone says they are a Christian, they can still be ” a wolf in sheeps clothing.” I have encountered that being in the deep religious cult I was apart of for 6 months of my life. These people told me they loved me, and that they would always be there for me…I was told to get rid of my ” Christian” stuff.

But the one true God stood up, and He helped me to get rid of it from my life.

So I ask you to please just hear me on something, next time you go to church, or a conference or whatever it may be,

make sure you have had sometime with Jesus first, make sure you KNOW who Jesus is.

Because our heart can deceive us as soon as the enemy shares his message notes.

Me and Shelly(To Know Him)

This is Shelly(To Know Him) She was the first person to ever comment on my blog:) LONG TIME AGO:) I was glad to finally meet her face to face!

I was only 10 seats away at this time LOL.

Beth Moore, ” Spiritual Discernment” Deeper Still 9-19-09

Beth Moore
Spiritual Discernment
(Deeper Still notes)

John 14:15-26, John 16:7

The power is not only around us, but in us.

Agape- Love that is demonstrative, emotional love

1 Corinthians – Activate in the reality of experience.

Spiritual Discernment is for a time when you have been:
betrayed
mislead
taken advantage of

2 Timothy 3:12-13

We always do before we know what to do

Ephesians 3:20

Two dimensions of spiritual revelation we desperately need to have:

1- In our human encounters
2- Can I trust what I am sensing?

Here are four question we can ask ourselves:

1. Am I critical or suspicious by nature?
2. Am I jealous or feel threatened by this person?
3. Do I have anything selfish to gain from the outcome?
4. Are my emotions clouding my discernment?

Phillipians 1:9-10

Learn to love others with knowledge and insight.

2 Timothy 3

Do not confuse living people without the discernment to back away from them.

2 Timothy 3:6

We gotta learn to go with our spiritual gut.
We can’t walk in the spirit without walking in intimacy.

Show me a Godly woman I’ll show you a woman who persued Godliness.

Did the spirit within me remain steadfast?

If not, here are 1-4 instructions

1. RUN
2. Take a step back
3. Ask questions in person, face to face!
4. Love with eyes wide open

Obadiah 1:3
” The pride in your heart has deceived you.”

Psalm 116
John 14

Divine revelation in Christ Himself

1 Corinthians 2
Hebrews 12:1-4

Priscilla Shirer, ” God is ABLE” Deeper Still 9-19-09

Priscilla Shirer
God is ABLE
(notes from Deeper Still conference)

Ephesians 3:20-21
Connection- Ephesians 3 to last two verses, it was done on purpose.
NOW(Consider the ability of God)to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Ephesians is a Prison Doxology; Praise and honor to God, while Paul was in prison.

John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

NOW to us is the time to write in SPITE of what I’m going through. Now is the time to turn unto Him!

We spend more time worshipping the problem then worshipping our God.

In spite of everything going on around us, like Kay said, ” Fix our eyes on Jesus”

He is just not able, or willing, but can turn around in His diety and sympathize and do something with you.

Numbers 13

One in a million: Able to believe God without caring what is going on around.

2+2=4 always. Wherever you are from.

Its our business to believe he can, its His business that He will.

Isaiah 59
” Now to him who is able to do for you.”

John 2:11
Psalm 147:17
Jeremiah 29:11

In Zephaniah it actually says” A voice to sing over us”

We seem to always want the miracle that is tangible for us right now.

Gen 1:1

When you believe, you will believe for bigger things.

TOTALITY- Eph 3:20-21, Romans 8:32

God is predictable in His character, but unpredictable in His activity.

Kay Arthur ” The Rest Of Faith ” Deeper Still 9-18-09

Kay Arthur
” Rest of Faith”
( NOTES FROM DEEPER STILL)

The focus was on the book of Hebrews.
Beginning with (Hebrews 1-2)

Jesus is up in heaven praying for us.

His throne is forever, and He is the Everlasting God, Eloheim, Alpha and Omega, and hates lawlessness.

To go deeper still: Fix our eyes on Jesus.

We live in a world of ” Icabod” which means, ” Glory has departed”.

Your faith is going to be tried and tested to the core. Our place of eniquity is overflowing.
God can’t let these things continue.

Rest of Faith: Taking the Word of God, and a heart fully set upon Jesus.

Hebrews 10 (Nero reigned in 54-68 A.D)

If persecution comes because you will stand for God, are you prepared?

v.32 – Remember the former days when after being ” enlightened” (saved, change you mind towards Jesus)

Do you remember the rejection in your life?

(She talked about here about being 29yrs old, and trying to convey the Bible to her family, parents caused conflict.)

If it becomes a crime to speak the Word of God in the USA, are you willing to go to prison?

vs. 34- Don’t throw away confidence.

Hangethdown in there baby!

If you know the Word of God, it’s laid out everything.

My righteous one will live by faith if He shrinks back my soul finds no pleasure in him.

Hab 2:7

Living by faith is living word of God.(Romans and Hebrews)

vs.38-39- But we are not those who shrink back to destruction but those who believe and are saved.

Hebrews 5 vs.14- You are not gonna know truth unless you know the God YOURSELF!

The people of this time did shrink back in 3 ways:
1- suffering
2- They weren’t constantly growing
3- They were just trying to be good people, and do good deeds.

Hebrews 6:10-12

In this day and age, we don’t have to wait for anything, we want everything in a hurry.

57% of evangelists make their decisions based on the Bible.

Hebrews 11:1-6
Hebrews 2:17-18

Rest of Faith: Uniting Word of God with faith for that situation.

Knowing what God says, and walking in obidience.

Hebrews 11
Hebrews 12:1-3
Hebrews 13:12

I am FLOORED!!! Thank God for DeeperStill!!!

okay so, I have SOOO much I would love to share in my heart right now, but I am just so overwhelmed, and speechless pretty much, so what I am just going to say is for now just what sweet people I got to see and meet:)

Mama Moonflower-Jan(Georgia Jan), my dear friend again:)- I so missed her, and I was so glad to see her again. There are some people that enter your life for God’s very moving purpose, and she has been one of them:) I was glad for the time of conversation:) Love her!

My sweet friend Shelly(To Know Him)- If y’all don’t know this girl, she is so sweet! she is the greek and hebrew translation guru:)
It was really nice to meet her, she is a long time siesta like myself, and meeting her face to face, it just was awesome:)
It showed me a true friend:) and I am blessed to know her! Love you Shells!

A siesta named Daimy:) She was sweet!

Tim Wolfe, a friend of mine whose on Z88.3- I have known this guy since 2001:) He was the one that quoted me,
” When Jesus is all you have Jesus is all you need.” and it was great to just spend a few talking to him again;)

Pam and Paige from Lifeway Events:)- They are busy people:) but it was great to meet them!

Amanda Ober(Channel 6 news)- I remember Amanda from when I worked at the drycleaners in Orlando long ago, we got talking about doing Beth Moore studies, and just talking about Jesus:) It was cool.

My friend Alli from when I worked at Victorias Secret- It was like a needle in haystack she was like across the next seats from me:) A good friend of mine, who has had the same struggles as myself over the years, and we are always trying to meet up, and she just happened to be at Deeper Still:)

My friend Allison from highschool:)

OH, did I forgot to mention I met Beth Moore? Oh, sorry about that!-
She is so precious, and she handled that mob of people so graciously, but through
the crowd, It was a blessing to know she knew who I was:) Not in a million years
would I have thought she would! So blessed!

I am just going to say a word of scripture here, because when I finally do post, this is the verse that is so on my heart after listening to the conference today.

My memory verse#3 (Isaiah 40:26)
” Lift your eyes and look to the heavens; who created all these? He who bring out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name, because of his great power and mighty strength not one of them is missing.”

God knows us, maybe the world doesn’t, but God does…and He will let those in on knowing who you are:)
This weekend proved that!

More to come and the notes:)
