The Breaking of the Alabaster Box
 
November 4, 2012

2 Corinthians 4:5 For what we preach is not ourselves but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves [merely] as your servants (slaves) for Jesus' sake. 6 For God Who said, Let light shine out of darkness, has shone in our hearts so as [to beam forth] the Light for the illumination of the knowledge of the majesty and glory of God [as it is manifest in the Person and is revealed] in the face of Jesus Christ (the Messiah). 7 However, we possess this precious treasure [the divine Light of the Gospel] in [frail, human] vessels of earth, that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to be from God and not from ourselves. 8 We are hedged in (pressed) on every side [troubled and oppressed in every way], but not cramped or crushed; we suffer embarrassments and are perplexed and unable to find a way out, but not driven to despair; 9 We are pursued (persecuted and hard driven), but not deserted [to stand alone]; we are struck down to the ground, but never struck out and destroyed; 10 Always carrying about in the body the liability and exposure to the same putting to death that the Lord Jesus suffered, so that the [resurrection] life of Jesus also may be shown forth by and in our bodies. 11 For we who live are constantly [experiencing] being handed over to death for Jesus' sake, that the [resurrection] life of Jesus also may be evidenced through our flesh which is liable to death. 12 Thus death is actively at work in us, but [it is in order that our] life [may be actively at work] in you. 13 Yet we have the same spirit of faith as he had who wrote, I have believed, and therefore have I spoken. We too believe, and therefore we speak, 14 Assured that He Who raised up the Lord Jesus will raise us up also with Jesus and bring us [along] with you into His presence. 15 For all [these] things are [taking place] for your sake, so that the more grace (divine favor and spiritual blessing) extends to more and more people and multiplies through the many, the more thanksgiving may increase [and redound] to the glory of God. 16 Therefore we do not become discouraged (utterly spiritless, exhausted, and wearied out through fear). Though our outer man is [progressively] decaying and wasting away, yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day after day.
 
Psalm 116:10 I believed (trusted in, relied on, and clung to my God), and therefore have I spoken [even when I said], I am greatly afflicted
 
About giving all you have for Jesus and His glory and His Kingdom.  His eyes go to and fro!  2 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him.  What shall He find?  Who shall He find? 
Psalm 33:15 He Who fashions the hearts of them all, Who considers all their doings.  El Shaddai = All Sufficient One. 
 
What is ‘Breaking’ all about?
 
 A shattering and scattering of the wall of protection (outermost man) that our Lord desires to break through.  He asks for surrender, not my will Lord Jesus but Your will.  I must decrease and You increase.  Lord hear the desire of our hearts and spirits now.
 
Our hearts, our lives surrendered to Him our Lord Jesus Christ Master potter.  He works the clay of our lives.  Tonight A Prophetic Journey will be establishing a new dimension and focus to Preparing a Prophetic People.  A new realm requiring more breaking and accepting God’s process in each of our lives. 
  
 Breaking of the Alabaster Box
 
Mark 14:3 And while He was in Bethany, [a guest] in the house of Simon the leper, as He was reclining [at table], a woman came with an alabaster box of ointment (perfume) of pure nard, very costly and precious; and she broke the box and poured [the perfume] over His head. 4 But there were some who were moved with indignation and said to themselves, To what purpose was the ointment (perfume) thus wasted? 5 For it was possible to have sold this [perfume] for more than 300 denarii [a laboring man's wages for a year] and to have given [the money] to the poor. And they censured and reproved her. 6 But Jesus said, Let her alone; why are you troubling her? She has done a good and beautiful thing to Me [praiseworthy and noble].  She gave all she had. Are you prepared to allow our Lord to bring you to a point of being able to allow Him to emanate His life, His fragrance, His deliverance, His healing?
   
This account was written also in Luke 7:37 And behold, a woman of the town who was an especially wicked sinner, Luke 8:2 And also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had been expelled;
 
Also notice Mark 16:9 Now Jesus, having risen [from death] early on the first day of the week, appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom He had driven out seven demons.10  She went and reported it to those who had been with Him, as they grieved and wept.
 
Mary Magdalene went with the good news.  She was filled with joy and celebration because Jesus appeared to her.  She was overflowing and carried the Good News.  Consider now New Testament testimony of the first evangelist a woman who our Lord Jesus Christ had driven out seven demons. 
 
We can also liken the breaking of the Alabaster Box to the kernel of wheat, seed planted in the soil to die and spring forth life.
 
John 12:24 I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels--a plentiful harvest of new lives.
 
The Word of God sown in your life is the seed.  Our Lord speaks through dreams, visions, scriptures, pastoral counsel, His prophets.  The Word is planted in your life and is buried.  Sometimes it feels like you are suffocating and dying.  It is the “P” word.  His process brings you to dying to self so new seeds, new life, a harvest of lives to come forth.
 
It is like David cried out to our Lord.  David a man broken and repentant giving up all as his heart was broken!   Psalm 51:17 I learned God-worship when my pride was shattered. Heart-shattered lives ready for love don't for a moment escape God's notice
 
A Prophetic Journey just completed the series of teaching, “Let the River Flow”.  The focus was on hindrances that could stop the flow of living waters flowing for your inner most being.  Now our Lord has a new dimension of the process that will be a part of “Preparing a Prophetic People”.  This dimension is “The Breaking of the Alabaster Box” 
 
We will be working with ‘The Release of the Spirit’ written by Watchman Nee.  This book is available from Amazon.com and also Half.com.  It is deep and we will use the basic information that will enable Preparing A Prophetic People to follow and provide all of us to learn about the breaking and releasing of His Spirit through us. 
 
Here is an illustration that will help you grasp the dynamics.  Three circles within each other.  The inner circle we will look at the Inner Man, the second circle will be the Outer Man and the third circle (the outer one) is the Outermost Man.

Through the years I served at Christian International Ministries in an Elijah –Elisha mentoring process.  Our Lord worked the clay of my life twelve years.  During this time I learned about the “P” word.  Process!  Allowing the hand of God to work His will and transformation process in my life!  Our Lord is continuing to work on my life each day.  In fact it is minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day.
 
There was also a book that helped me to grasp and understand this continuing process.  Yes continuing the transformation process was Merimos
 
Transformation
 
1. the act or process of transforming.
2. the state of being transformed.
3. change in form, appearance, nature,, or character.
 
 Metamorphosis
 
1.Biology a profound change in form from one stage to thenext in the life history of an organism, as from 
the caterpillarto the pupa and from the pupato the adult butterfly.
2. complete change of form, structure, substance, as transformation by magic or witchcraft.
3.any complete change in appearance, character,circumstances, etc.
4.a form resulting from any such change.
 
Two examples of transformation or metamorphosis are the butterfly and the chick.  When either of these are beginning to emerge it is absolutely necessary that each one must come through the process alone because it they did not work the process alone they would not mature or stabilize to full maturity.  We have the desire to assist but wisdom says no.  It is similar to the Bride of Christ.  Each of us coming through transformation and this process and transaction must realize it is to be done between each believer and Messiah Jesus.  Everything within us wants to help but prayer support and words of life and encouragement are the way. 

Be a prayer support.

things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about setting up

Thank you

Userѕ can also enjoy live chat sessions with friends ᥙsing the IM client ԝhiϲh enables
the application of vаrious instant messenger providеrs
like Google - Talk and Ꮃindows - Live. The modifications manufactuгed in producing this verѕion with the i
- Phone haѵe surely meant that the comparisons between Apple as well as thе
competition, and also the accompаnying speⅽ sheets are
getting to bе more meaningless with each passing geneгation. Now, there's another high-end phone that mɑy do wonders for
the company.
