“An Ephesians 5 Husband” by Dr. Jené Walker

Ephesians 5:25-32 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.”

Who wants an Ephesians 5 man?God, through Apostle Paul, has given us the characteristics of a husband here in Ephesians Chapter 5. It is up to us to adhere to His instructions and wait until Jehovah manifests this man for us.

Ephesians 5 Husbands do the following:

1. Husbands love us as Yeshua loves the church. He gives up himself for us, makes a sacrifice for us, dies to himself and his desires for us. That is love.

2. Husbands make us holy, cleansing us by washing us with the water through the word. Know the Word for yourself. We are not your teachers. You already know the Word and have a relationship through your own study and prayer time. Then, as the head of us, you are able to cleanse us by washing with water through the word. When we are in error, you are the example and you clean us up. When we need guidance you use the word to steer us in the right direction. To wash us with water through the word he has to know the Word.

3. Husbands must present us to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any blemish but holy and blameless. As a result of his washing us, he must regularly assess his washing to see if we are without stain and holy. Jehovah will not only hold us accountable for ourselves but our husbands are our covering and they help to hold us accountable. They have to be holy and blameless to be the models for us.

4. Husbands must love us as they love their own bodies. This is sacrificial love too. They will take time to wash their cars and shine em up really good. Whatever they would think to do for themselves (feed, care for, provide for, treat, etc.), they do it for us. He thinks of us when he thinks of himself. That’s why it is imperative that we wait for Jehovah to send us a “whole” and healed man. We are members of our husband’s body. He who loves himself loves his wife and he who hates and mistreats his wife has already done it to himself.

5. Husbands leave their father and mother and cling to and be united as one with us. No family member should be able to interfere, meddle, or come between us and our husbands.

Wives, we must submit to our husbands in EVERYTHING and respect them.

Wives, we must submit to our husbands in EVERYTHING and respect them. Those are the commands Yeshua gives to us.

“Procrastination: A Serious Spiritual Crime” by Dr. Jené Walker

Procrastination is a serious spiritual crime. Why? Because it means that we “know” that Jehovah tasked us to do something and we’re taking our time in doing it. Procrastination  is slow disobedience. Procrastination is delayed obedience. Procrastination is defiance. Procrastination is a sin. I don’t know why Lot came to mind. When the two angels came to rescue Lot from the demise of Sodom and Gomorrah, the angels had to coax them into obeying and leaving immediately.  Jehovah sent angels to warn them of the devastation to come and Lot and his family had to be “led” away. Why?

Jehovah has shown us the devastation to come if we live in sin but instead of immediately coming out of sin, we’re taking our time, procrastinating and lingering in it. Jehovah has shown us the blessings and rewards for our obedience when we start the business, write the book, start the ministry, leave the job, relocate, answer the call, start the prayer line, facilitate the Bible study, write the plan, write the grant, and secure the building but we are taking our sweet time. The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Jehovah wants us to know that “the thing” He has asked us to do has very little to do with “us.”  We are “vessels.” If we understood the profundity of the impact our obedience will have on the kingdom, we would move immediately. Why are you so comfortable procrastinating? Because the enemy has deceived you into thinking that it’s just a “personality trait” instead of outright disobedience, opposition toward Jehovah, and downright sin. Let’s go! When I tell you I’m about to get my journal out and revisit what Jehovah has instructed me to do and ask Him for a timeline… Tis NOT the season to be procrastinating. It’s raining torrential rains… I have a “reverent” FEAR of Jehovah. I bind stagnancy in our lives in the name of Jehovah. How will the kingdom advance when the body is stagnant?

 

“Jehovah Must Be First” by Dr. Jené Walker

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

Holy Spirit is dealing with me about this scripture and my heart. So I’m personally digging into this Word today and really dissecting it word by word and phrase by phrase. Then, I will let Holy Spirit speak to me, counsel me, guide and direct me, and purge me. If we desire ANYTHING more than we desire Him and His kingdom, it will NOT work. If it’s a platform, recognition, love and companionship from a man, money, a house or ANYTHING, it will NOT work. Jehovah wants us to check our hearts daily, moment by moment. What are the desires of our hearts? In the succession of things we desire, is God first in rank, the greatest influence in our hearts, or is He the chief thing? If not, it will NOT work. Be encouraged though, because when God shows us the motives of our hearts, if we surrender those things and our hearts to Him, He is faithful and just to fix our hearts. We need to let Him fix it now in our single season because it may be that our priorities or a lack thereof are are holding us back from our blessings. Jené Walker

 

 

“The Blessing of Abraham” by Dr. Jené Walker

Kings, have you been waiting on the blessings of God? Have you been feeling like there has to be more than this in the kingdom for you before Yeshua (Jesus Christ) comes back? God are you willing to obey his commands? Yeshua says if you love Him then obey His commands. Yeshua says that He rewards those who believe He exists and who diligently seek Him. God wants to surely bless you. God wants to bless your children. God wants to enable you and your children to take possession of the cities, land, and territories that our enemies took from us. God wants to use you to prepare the kingdom for the return of Yeshua. Are you a man who obeys Jehovah? Are you a man who listens to the instructions from Holy Spirit? Are you a man who is willing to lay down his own life for the kingdom of God? If you are saying, “I am that man” right now, I’m decreeing and declaring the blessings of God over your life right now. Your health is blessed. Your finances are blessed. You’re blessed in your going out and in your coming in. Your home is blessed. Your bank account is blessed. Your career is blessed. Your ministry is blessed. Your business is blessed. Every thing you set your hands to do that is aligned with the will of God for your life is blessed in the name of Yeshua.

“Come Out From Among Them” by Dr. Jené Walker

I know you’re familiar with soul ties. Whenever we connect with a person sexually, we become “one” with that person. Jehovah intended for sex to be strictly in the context of God ordained marriages. Jehovah created sex for procreation. If a sexual act doesn’t cause fruit, God didn’t create the act. Homosexual sex doesn't lead to being fruitful and multiplying. Anal sex doesn’t lead to being fruitful and multiplying. Oral sex doesn’t lead to being fruitful and multiplying. So when we perform or allow these acts to be performed on us, we are opening up spiritual portals for all kinds of demons to enter us. Think of conjuring. To conjure is to call upon (a spirit or ghost) to appear, by means of a magic ritual. When we participate in pagan ritualistic sex (sex outside of marriage, anal, oral, homosexual sex) we are conjuring up pagan gods and spirits. These sexual acts negatively impact us personally as well as our relationships and children. Think of the divorce rate; the percentage of people with homosexual spirits; and the statistics about diseases. Where do we think these things come from? Sin. When Jehovah warns us to flee from idolatry, He means for us to stay away from it. We must pray and intercede on behalf of ourselves and our husbands and children to keep us from idolatry. We are not ignorant of the devices of the enemy. If we are, we have to wake up now single wives. "Check in" in the comment section below if you're willing to do warfare against the kingdom of darkness, idolatry, and sexual immorality. Jené Walker

“Is He a Counterfeit or the Real Deal?” by Dr. Jené Walker 

The details aren’t our problem. Our sovereign, almighty, all powerful Jehovah will work out all the details. We don’t have time for that. We are supposed to be seeking Jehovah for our kingdom dominion and assignment. Jehovah will orchestrate the meeting with our husbands, the revelation to our husbands that we’re the ones, his preparation, and the geographical location. Don’t worry your pretty little heads about that. Seek Him first and His righteousness. While you wait on Jehovah, let Him prepare your heart and mind for ministry and marriage. Let Him get all the bitterness OUT because it kills marriages. Let Him get all the hurt OUT that destroys trust. Let Him get all the compromise OUT because that shakes fidelity at the core. Let Him get all the deception OUT that causes you to think the counterfeit is real which causes the heart to stray. Let Him get all the disobedience OUT that causes us not to submit to our own husbands in everything. We have work to do while we WAIT. Nonetheless, WAIT. Jené Walker

“A House Brimming with Wealth” by Dr. Jené Walker

Psalm‬ ‭112:1-3 MSG‬‬ “Hallelujah! Blessed man, blessed woman, who fear GOD, Who cherish and relish his commandments, Their children robust on the earth, And the homes of the upright—how blessed! Their houses brim with wealth And a generosity that never runs dry.”
Begin to call yourself, your spouse (your spouse on the way), your children, and your family blessed. Confess the blessing over your life aloud every day and every night. Increase is due to you because you fear Jehovah and obey His commandments. Your house is brimming over with wealth and a generosity that never runs dry… That’s what the Word says. The enemy has deceived and manipulated the church so much so that when money or increase or prosperity or wealth are mentioned in most churches, we think those words are dirty words. We even cringe, roll our eyes, or worse, walk out and leave. When your heart is pure, when you use your wealth to bless the poor and advance the kingdom, when you don’t worship God and mammon in your heart, and when you don’t have a love for money, then wealth, riches, prosperity, and money are a blessing. Some of us have embraced a poverty mentality because we think it is “the right thing for believers to do.” I don’t receive that in my spirit. Renounce that false sense of humility. Renounce those lies and tricks. Stop allowing the enemy to manipulate you and use others to oppress you with that “the body of Yeshua can’t have money” mess. Holy Spirit will keep us rooted. Holy Spirit will convict us if we get off track. Holy Spirit will show us the motives of our hearts so that we can remain pure. Holy Spirit will keep us from greed and duplicity. Holy Spirit will guide us on how to use our wealth for the kingdom. We have kingdom businesses to develop. We have mountains of influence to infiltrate and overtake. We have the poor to see about. We have schools to build. We have prison ministry to facilitate. We have mission fields to conquer. We have to preach the gospel to the ends of the earth. We have to prepare the kingdom for the return of Yeshua. 
 
I believe I’m blessed to be a blessing to the kingdom. I am blessed through my relationship with Yeshua. I’m blessed because my heart is pure. I’m blessed because even though I sin and I’m flawed, I’m walking in obedience. When I’m blessed you’re blessed because my generosity never runs dry. When you’re blessed, I’m blessed. We cherish and relish His commandments so our houses overflow with wealth. We are so blessed that we never run out of blessings to give. I receive the blessings in my spirit and not the curses.
