Wells Are Often Stopped-Up by our “Enemies.”
Originally posted on 27th of February 2013, on HKP now edited and re-send, because
The L-rd wants it to be read by many, who are ready to stand in their calling or task.
Thus saith The L-rd,
“People of G-d, it is time to stand up now! You are feeding each other while I tell you to STOP!
Go out with each other and feed MY FLOCK the lost souls… Do they see you? Do they hear you?
Do they see ME? Where is MY ARMY?”
The Father told me, “D’Vorah, ponder on this study: Genesis 26:12-33.”
Often our wells are stopped up by our enemies but don’t give up, keep digging anyway, no matter how many times you have to do it, 70 times 7.
This is what He gave me:
Word of The L-rd:
“Now is the time to give My Word to the lost who have never heard the message.
“I Am” gives you The Message, and you are the messenger.
You have grown spiritually fat from the good of the Word. Now you must share the Word you have stored up in your heart and mind!
You are like Joseph, you can see the fat cows but you also see the hungry cows, now is the time of plenty, soon there will be a time of famine, so go and give the Word, the message of My Love to the spiritually deprived and hungry souls on the brink of death.”
I encourage you to take time to study Genesis 26.
In the study, we see that if someone reaches the Well of Living Water, they have found Yeshua.
Reaching The Well represents standing up with Yeshua.*** If you are standing by the Well ready to receive in order to give, you will discover some ugly things like quarrels, anger, jealousy, and resentment from others.
As you read Genesis 26, we can see as soon as The L-rd finds someone who has been healed in his/her spirit, soul, mind, and body and who has died to their own flesh by dying of oneself, The L-rd is ready to use the person to minister to others.
The exact moment The L-rd commissions you, the enemy is ready to use those to make you feel inadequate;
People will tell you that you are not yet ready, or you need more study, or you are still wounded and need more time to heal.
It would help they say, if you further improve, before you can minister according to their beliefs.
Despite what others tell you, do not let their lack of belief or faith in you deter you from where ‘I AM’ is calling you.
You already have all you need, and that is HIM, Your Father!
Stand up and come out of your boat and leave your comfort zone.
When Yochanan and I were in Israel, back in 2005, a dear friend, Paul, told me it was time to get out of the boat, rise, stand up and go.
Paul gave this illustration, and as he did, The L-rd spoke to me and said, remember this and keep it in your mind and heart.
Paul told us, sometimes I go to the beach and catch some crabs; I bring along a bucket to put them in.
There has been a moment that I saw something peculiar; in the bucket full of crabs, there was one crab on top who could quickly get out of the bucket.
It was just a moment away to have total freedom.
The other crabs grab him by the claw and drag him to the bottom of the bucket instead of helping him out.
This same thing is what is happening today to the Body of Yeshua.
As soon as there is one who finds the Well of Living Water and is standing up with confidence and has found the freedom in The L-rd, the others come and pull the person back to their past.
Let us first look at the Well, called ESEK, meaning quarreling.
You are standing up and enjoying that which The L-rd has given you to do. Suddenly, there are two types of spirits, which manifest themselves into those who come along to discourage you and trying to keep you from bearing the fruit that is appearing in your life.
This first type is under the yoke of a spirit of jealousy and is sowing an environment of quarreling.
The second type is just the opposite end of discouragement; it is one of co-dependency. This Spirit will tell you that you are still wounded and need more healing before The L-rd can use you.
But to be successful in G-d’s Kingdom, one needs to align with G-d, not man. What must we do?
The Father spoke to me and said:
“You try to defend yourself, and you do not need to. You do not need to defend Me. Stand up and keep your focus on Me; if you look at them, you will fall. You are trying to be at peace with them, but it isn’t going to work. The Spirit of The L-rd will bring a separation down to the marrow.”
We have a quote here in Holland, “If people want to hit a dog, they can find a stick to hit the animal.”
“Those wanting to hit you on the head will find something to try to start a quarrel with you.
Although you try to keep the peace, there are spirits finding fault with anything to discourage you and to get your eyes, your focus off, of Me.”
The Father says, “Don’t defend yourselves, keep digging, and you will find the Well of Living Water.” “Keep digging and trusting in Yeshua!”***
The second Well is Sitna, meaning anger.
So, we keep digging and digging, which means we are growing more and more in the Spirit. Now we find people who are jealous and angry because you are doing what The L-rd is telling you, and see you are growing.
Every time you get out of the boat, others are there to try to bring you back.
Remember the story of the crabs!
The third Well is Rehoboth, meaning space.
The Father knows that all these things happen because you are the one who receives the hurtful and discouraging comments as if they were the truth.
You allow those words to enter your heart and end up getting angry and sinning by not giving the anger to The L-rd.
You are being tempted to let others rule over you again, bringing you back under their yoke
-a yoke you have made for yourself.
Don’t let the enemy fool you by patronizing you. Keep digging!
Keep doing what Abba is telling you to do! The choice is yours. If we do what we do for The L-rd, we will see it coming to pass as is standing in Genesis 26-27.
Those who thought you could not do it will be the first who come to recognizance, that The L-rd is with you if you remain standing, like Job did.
The L-rd himself will take care of you, and others will see He is blessing you; if you are the one who keeps digging, no matter the surroundings and how circumstances look — you will learn to know Yeshua more deeply.
In His timing, the first shall be last, and the last shall be first.
Humble yourself and dig.
The lower you get, the closer you get to Yeshua.***
The wages for the work will be the same for the first as with the last.
The first laborers complained they deserved more than those hired at the last hour. It doesn’t matter if you have been serving Him forty years or forty minutes. The pay is the same.
The Word of The L-rd:
“I AM who I AM, I make no difference and am not a respecter of persons.
I will choose whom I choose. I love all My children very much.
Many of the problems we have seen in this study reveal the root in your hearts.
When you are ministering for the sake of yourself and the fame of your name, you will always be jealous of others.
If you minister in My Name, you will welcome everyone who stands up too.
Are you looking through your own eyes or My eyes, than you see My vision; there are many mansions in My Father’s House; if we’re not so, I would have had no need to prepare a place for you.
Serve Me, not in your name or YOUR ministry — I AM that I AM. The seed you sow, when you serve Me will come back to you, if you plant in your name you will get nothing, sow MY Name and you will receive My Blessings.”
The custom of substituting the word “God” with G-d in English is based on the traditional practice in Jewish law of giving God’s Hebrew name a high degree of respect and reverence.
Furthermore, when written or printed, it is forbidden to destroy or erase the name of God (and many of the stand-in names used to refer to God).
Blessings and Shalom over you!
