How To Put Your House In Order


This word came in response to inquiring of God what He means by putting our houses in order. i received numerous emails asking, and I wanted to get His answer on it, rather than just say what I thought.

My people, in order for you to put your houses in order, you must defer all decision making to Me or My Holy Word. To be in order is to walk in My ways, do My will, and obey My commands.

Many of you have walked your own way and done your own will for all your lives. This was not My way for you, but in your stubbornness and rebellion, you refused to hear My voice or obey what was right.

Consequently, many of you now live lives filled with pain and torment, and you wonder why. Many doors opened to the enemy in your rebellion have brought you to this place.

If you will hearken to My voice and turn away from those things I lead you away from. I will now help you to set your house in an order that is pleasing in My sight. Many of you have much work to do, but some of you who have walked in My ways for many years have very little to set right to be in order in My eyes.

The enemy has set unlawful authorities over some of you within your own houses and I desire you would set this right. It is not My desire that you be out of order in your households. How can you obey Me if this is so?

In soon times coming, I will be shaking many nations. Households that are out of order cannot survive this shaking. You must put your house in order while there is yet time.

I love you, My children. I do not desire that you would fear what is coming. Draw near to Me and allow Me to protect you under My mighty wings. You will be safe if you will abide in My shadow.

Psalm 78:8: And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.

Proverbs 1:23: Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

Psalm 91:1: Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

You can download this word with my comments in MP3 format on my Blog Talk Radio Show page here: 

YouTube video where I talk about the vision of the U.S. I had last week:

  1. The simplest definition of putting our houses in order is to ask El Shaddai what His priorities are for us, and to do those things. To ask Him to sift our beliefs in order to show us what religious beliefs we hold that actually keep us from knowing Him as He is. To ask Him to purify us so that we are willing to let go of the traditions that keep us from the Biblical Truths right in front of our faces. Getting our houses in order is a matter of the heart, at its very core.

    We are so opinionated, so very indoctrinated into the zealotry of self! There is so much, "Well, I think this...my opinion is that...
    He is telling us IN BOLD FONT that He wants us to check our self-exalting opinions at the door, to shut our mouths, and to listen to Him. There is no room for pride or protecting our personal favorite sacred cows in this place.

    We must question everything we think is true: Is it in the Bible, in at least two different locations (remember that every matter must be established by at least two witnesses), read in context and not just one verse at a time? Then we must check what we think it means with the Ruach, the Holy Spirit. To ask Him, "Am I understanding Your heart, or is there something else You want me to know about this?"

    The nuances of doing this will vary for Protestants, Catholics, Jews, Mormons, and on and on...but the gist is the same. Put away the unBiblical precepts that you have been taught by your pastors, priests, and rabbis. Stop worshiping the Queen of Heaven. Stop listening to and agreeing with your pastor when he tells you the Commandments of the Holy One have been abolished, though the Bible says something different. Stop relying on the Pope to be the intermediary between you and El Shaddai, thought the Bible says only Yeshua can fill that role. Stop being guilted by your pastor into tithing to your church without asking El Shaddai if HE wants the money to go there, or if the work He wants funded is found elsewhere.

    If we will get our individual houses in order in this manner, and obey His Word even when it contradicts our favorite sacred cows, then He will finally be able to build up His corporate house and put it in order -- because He will have purified stones with which to do it. Right now, in the state that many individual Believers are in, He cannot bring His people into a Holy unity.

  4. When it comes to obeying His every command, we must trust Him in what He says. But I have a problem. I have the gift of prophecy and I hear from the Lord's Spirit in my heart and mind, but sometimes I also hear the enemy's voice impersonating the Lord's voice. When I obey the Lord, it goes well with me. When I follow the Liar, it falls ill and I waste time, money, energy, etc. on His lies. Confirmation from the Word is important. This is true. But the Word is probably not going to tell me whether I should turn right or left while driving to find the next homeless person I need to give my money to. Or whether or not I should kiss my husband or walk away because I have a lot of work to do. Therefore, how can I be sure BEFORE I make the decision, when it's details that are not enumerated in His Word? For example, a serious purchasing decision that might cost us a lot of money? I don't know--it may be the devil trying to "steal, kill and destroy" my finances, or it might be the Lord trying to bless us with a new financial direction to go. How can I know for sure? I'm sure you've dealt with this before.

  5. I need help. How can we find out whether it's the Lord's will to make a serious financial decision in one direction or another, if The Word does not enumerate every precise detail of our individual life decisions for us? Sometimes I don't know if it's the enemy's voice I'm hearing or the Lord's voice I'm hearing, telling me to, for example, kiss my husband again, or walk away because I have a LOT of work to do. Or it could be more serious, like when I'm lost on the road and have no gas left and I hear "turn right." Sometimes I do that and it's the Lord and it gets me going the right way, and sometimes I do that and it's obviously NOT the Lord, because I end up even more lost, with wasted time, wasted gas, and more disheartened. I need to know how to tell when the voice I'm hearing is from the Lord or not, even if it's not specifically in the Word what I'm supposed to do in that specific scenario. For example, whether or not to accept a certain job offer. Thank you, Jesus, for your Wisdom and Truth.I praise you, Father, in the Name of Jesus.

  8. Hi Glynda ...here is a confirming word from a post on Open Heaven. Thanks ...gary

    3/19/13

    Come and be lost in Me. Come and lose yourself, your whole self. There is only one who hinders you from stepping into the deep things. That is the one whose mind of reasoning keeps Me from bursting forth life into the dark places and the recesses of your heart and mind. To be lost in Me, is to be really and truly found in Me. So I Am inviting you once again. Your mind has kept you from truly knowing me and following Me and obeying Me. Every time a revelation comes from My Word, your mind of reasoning comes and stands against My Word. That is why I have told you time and time again to cast down those vain imagination. The mind of reasoning is the one that stands as a great enemy to the great depths of revelation that I have for you. But if you would totally surrender, lose yourself, then revelation will abound. What do you have to lose? You have everything to gain if you would lose yourself. Then you would find the supernatural insights, abilities ,strength and gifts and talents and might that I have for you. Everything that I have left at your disposal in order that you might walk upright before me as mighty, mighty warriors of the Kingdom. As you rise up, you can cause destruction to the plans of the enemy, the wicked one fights against your lives, and also those that I have sent you on assignment to protect as a shade and a shelter. If only you would hearken to My Word and stop allowing that same familiar spirit to usurp authority over Me and My Word. Come humbly once again and I will cover you and I will make the enemy's voice and his ways, most difficult to get through to you. For together we will build a strong tower against his interference. And you will walk forth as that new creature that I have ordained for you to be and you will see great things from the Kingdom. Greater insights raining from the Kingdom and you will walk in them and live in them and you will do exploits in my name.While signs, wonders, and demonstrations will follow you affirming that you are My own. For I am calling once again to come and wash, and purify and purge My only ones, My chosen ones, My select and elected ones that you might stand in this evil day. You will stand as signs, that you might stand as a way, that you might stand as a light for those who are lost without me. So I'm calling you once again, abandon yourself to me. For I am well able to make you whole, nothing missing, nothing broken. And the plan that I have for you is the perfect one, if you would quit trying to make it happen and allow me to do it says the Lord.

    "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me." (Gal.2:20)

    "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world." ( 1 John 4:4)

  11. Amein and amein! YHWH wants us to obey His commands. They are there in the Bible for all to see who will read and believe it. They are YHWH's instructions for the family--the whole family--not "just the Jews." Everyone who has received Yeshua (Jesus) as Saviour is GRAFTED INTO the family--they most certainly do NOT REPLACE that family! Most Christians do not know what the family rules are because people way back in history changed them; told them that the family rules had been done away with--so they no longer had to keep (Saturday) sabbath or the biblical feast days, and they could now eat unclean things and keep pagan holidays. These are lies from the pit of hell! The devil WANTS YHWH's people to be defiled so He won't be able to help them. Check out my website (www.home-and-school-solutions.com) for lots more information on this (including links to great ministries and teachings). The great news is that the tribulation which we are about to enter is part of the process by which YHWH is bringing His family all back together again. It won't be pleasant, but the reward is great--we will enter the Kingdom we've been waiting for! If we want to endure to the end, we must follow the family rules and the Father will be pleased with us and help us.

  19. Josh--God passionately loves you. Please read all the Bible verses you can find about God's love toward us and then *receive* that love instead of trying to earn it or to become perfect, etc.

    We cannot earn God's love--that's impossible. He loves us just as much today as He ever will, so what remains is for us to *receive* His love and let it change us. We cannot change ourselves--only God can do that.

    But from your comments here, I'm thinking that what you need most is to *relax* and fall in love with Jesus. Receive His love instead of trying to earn it. Walk with Jesus, go everywhere with a very real sense of His presence. He's there for you--and He promised to never, ever leave you.

    Jesus longs to be your closest friend, a friend closer than a brother--and true friends never torment each other. The torment you're feeling is so not coming from God(!), but rather, perhaps from expectations you or others have put upon yourself.

    God is a wonderful, caring father, the best, ever. So caring, so loving, that He sent His very best gift to us--His very son, Jesus. Jesus, who wants to have the closest, most loving relationship with you. Today. Just as you are. He loves you that much. Blessings, Debra

  22. Dear Josh,

    God is not a God of fear. When you come to Him He will give you rest not fear. So if you are right in your attitude and you stay on His path you are protected by Him. He knows our human mind and bodies. When we fast and stopped, and it was not ok to stop because you promissed something to God, you can just ask forgiveness. God sees our heart, that is more important than fasting itself. So give your situation to God, He knows you and will show you what is needed in your life. Don not be fearfull just read your bible and pray and God will let you know what to do. Read psalm 23 and 91 and remember, when your live is in Gods hand He will guide you even when you do not hear Him on a moment. Stay focused on Him.

  23. Josh,

    It sounds as though you might be going through a period of trial. Some time ago I was going through a difficult time, and found great solace in Psalm 40:2. I believe God told me through that verse that even though we go through some rough times, he will always be there to take us out of it and set us on firm ground.

    Psalm 46:10 says "Be still and know that I am God...."

    Sometimes it is hard to be patient when we feel afflicted. Giving God praise through speech and song can help take your mind off any troubles, and set your sights on Him.

    God bless you.

  24. Josh,

    It sounds like you might be going through a time of trial. Some time ago I went through a rough time, and I found great solace in Psalm 40:2.

    "He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings."

    I believe God told me through that verse that we will experience difficult times, but he will always be there to take us out of them. He will give us comfort.

    Sometimes it is difficult to be patient when we are afflicted. Psalm 46:10 says "Be still and know that I am God....."

    Praising God through song and speech helps us take our mind off our troubles, and set our sights on him.

    Trust Him, He is faithful always.

    God bless you, Josh. I will pray for the resolve of your troubles.

  26. SJosh, The Lord told me once to stop fasting because I was doing it in the flesh. Jesus said that before you make your vows, count the cost.
    God saves and keeps you by grace in His unconditional love, not whether or not you fast. You sound like one similar to me, that fell into the trap of striving in the flesh.
    I use to think I couldn't rest until I got my breakthrough. God has led me to learn to relax in Him, without my breakthrough, because He will give it sovereignly while resting in His love.
    We don't earn it through fasting or anything else. Being led to fast is one thing, feeling pressured or bulliedinto fasting is something else, often the devil taking advantage of a weak or legalistic conscience. Satan he wants to drive you to despair. Be free to NOT FAST. Anything that is pushing you rather than leading is not of God.
    Letting go of your own striving is not backsliding. Trust in The Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your OWN UNDERSTANDING or ASPSIRATIONS, even if they are well-meaning ones such as parying and fasting until your breakthrough. It sounds like you need a revelation of God's love for you without of this "religious" stuff you feel you have to do to please God.

  29. The new Pope is Peter the Roman prophesied by St. Malachy.

    Prophesy of St. Malachy of the last pope:

    10. PETER THE ROMAN - The 112th prophesy states: "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Petrus Romanus, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End."


    Those who know St. Malachys way of describing the popes will be able to follow this logic.
    Here is a description of Peter the Roman and the new pope.

    Petrus Romanus or 'Peter the Roman' is the supposed name of the very last pope in the prophecy of the popes by 12th centruy saint Maelmhaedhoc Ó Morgair, better known as St. Malachy. Pope Francis is the last pope of the prophecy as far as numbers go but is he Petrus Romanus?

    Francis of Assisi is known for Rocca Maggiore, which means Big Rock, which is the meaning of the name “Peter,”
    so, Pope Francis is named for Francis of Assisi – Francis of Big Rock.

    Nostradamus’ Quatrain 49:

    Nul de l’Espaigne mais de l’antique France,
    Ne sera esleu pour le tremblant nacelle,
    A l’ennemy sera faicte fiance,
    Qui dans son regne sera peste cruelle.

    Not from Spain but from ancient France,
    Will be elected for the trembling ship [the Bark of St. Peter],
    He will make a promise to the enemy,
    Who will cause great plague during his reign.

    Pope Francis’ parents are from Turin, which happens to be ancient France (Lombards and Charlemagne). Argentina apparently means “Old Spain,” so Francis is not from Argentina but “ancient France” – true if one is speaking of his ancestors. More recently, his ancestors came from Rome/Italy, of course, so the new pope’s heritage is Roman/Italian.
    Beyond this obscure thought is the fact that “berg” in German means “mountain” (but not Latin or Italian). And a mountain is also a rock when speaking symbolically (The Rock). It is true that with old phrasing, we are dealing with several languages including Latin, so some leeway needs to be given.

    The new pope chose "Francis," referring to St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis of Assisi's birth name was "Giovanni Francesco di PIETRO Bernardone. St. Francis' original name included “Peter.”

    Prepare accordingly to this prophesy!

  35. Please Josh, and anyone else struggling like this, Please know:

    DEMONS CAN DO THIS TO YOU. AND YOU CAN DO SOMETHING TO STOP THEM. RECITE SCRIPTURE OUT LOUD. CAST THEM OUT IN THE NAME OF JESUS! CLAIM THAT THE DEMONS ARE GONE. ASK FOR GODS ANGELS TO SURROUND YOU AND PROTECT YOU FROM SATAN'S ATTACKS.

    So often times, Christians think that they could not possibly be affected by demons, because they believe that a Christian can not have a demon. BUT THEY ARE WRONG. Even if the demons troubling a believer are not actually IN them, they can still try to attack them from the outside.

    Another thing to consider, is if there are any unclean items in your house or on your land. These items can be a doorway that the enemy uses to enter into this world and attack you. (See my personal testimony on cleaning the land:
    http://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2013/03/26/how-to-get-rid-of-land-demons-and-keep-them-out/.)

    demonbuster.com has some good intro links on spiritual warfare, and my favorite book on it is called "Blood On The Doorposts" by Bill and Sharon Schnoebelen. It gives you a good idea of what is unclean, and how this could be affecting your life.

    Please know, that the emotions you are describing (dizzy, confused, loosing your mind, not wanting to face the world again, scared, etc.,) are also names of actual demons. Please try casting them out in the name of Jesus. It may help to lessen the severity of the emotions. Satan loves to take a negative emotion and ramp it up to a painful level. (Below is an example of that happening to me and my husband, and how these demons were removed: http://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2012/02/10/this-is-satan-attacking-us/)

    And yes, in case you were wondering, I too, have gone through something similar. So much so, that I almost committed suicide. (Which was also a demon. My testimony on this is on my blog.) But the more I have learned about spiritual warfare, the more I began to practice it, and the more I have found PEACE.

    Jesus, please speak to Josh. Let him CLEARLY hear Your voice within him today!

    And Josh, may you also find the peace that surpasses ALL understanding.

    Blessings to you dear Josh,
    C. Dunamis

  40. Josh, or anyone else out there who is reading this and feeling the way Josh has stated, I think an experience given to me might be able to help you. When I first became a follower of Christ, I struggled with the idea of being good enough for Him. I felt so inept, so dirty, so unworthy. I struggled DAILY with this. The enemy had a hay day with me. When I went to the gym and looked at a man with a great physique, I felt guilty. I wasn't lusting after them but merely appreciating the beauty and dedication it took to create such a physique. I was a bodybuilder at the time so I knew how much work goes into that.

    The guilt was devastating to me. I felt unworthy, unclean and just downright sick. And then, God gave me a dream. I dreamt that I was sitting at a table playing cards with a man whose face I could not see. There was a bright light behind his head and it darkened his features while lighting up his silhouette. I don't play cards so this was odd to me. He spoke and said, "Sometimes things are just a gift. You accept it as that and say thank you. And then you trust." Having that dream when I did gave me such peace. I was taught that it didn't matter what I did. It's NOT about me and ALL ABOUT HIM and WHAT HE DID FOR US. It's ALWAYS about Him.

    We tend to live in the flesh and focus on the wrong things. My husband and I used to watch The Ten Commandments every single night as we fell asleep. We always commented about the Israelites and how could they possibly turn away from God after experiencing all of those miraculous feats. The plagues. The parting of the Red Sea. The manna. The doves. The water from the Rock. The Pillar of Fire and Pillar of Smoke. HOW COULD THEY NOT BELIEVE?

    And then Jesus spoke to my spirit and corrected me. He said I was focusing on the wrong thing, the fleshly thing. I was focusing on the negativity of this world instead of focusing on HIS FAITHFULNESS TO HIS PEOPLE. When I received this message, I understood that in order to understand His Word, and especially the Tanakh, the Old Testament, you MUST READ IT THROUGH A LENS OF LOVE. HIS LOVE. If you read the Bible and see negativity in God, you are looking through eyes of flesh instead of eyes of faith, eyes of love. Every judgment...you know, the ones people use to say God is an egomaniac, a jealous, maniacal, genocidal freak...was to ENSURE THE BIRTH OF THE MESSIAH. Every judgment came from LOVE. If we see Noah's flood in any other way that God ensuring His only begotten Son could be born to save ALL WHO BELIEVE, then we are misunderstanding His Holy Word.

    Josh--and all others suffering--it's not about you. It's about HIM and what HE DID FOR YOU. That's all it's ever been about. Go to Him in prayer. Ask for confirmation. Read Galatians and Romans and understand that it IS about HIM and how He Who knew no sin became sin so He could GIVE US HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. Through one man, sin entered the world so, too, through One Man did salvation come.

    God bless and if I can help ANYONE understand this better, please contact me. You can find me at gmail. farmbygardens
