This is the 5th of 5 Words being released in a five day period July 26-30, 2009. Therefore, this is relational to the mercy and grace of the MOST HIGH GOD! The number five concerns the 5th day, the hand of the LORD, the mercy and grace of ABBA ADONAI, and the five-fold equipping gifts of Ephesians 4:11 (apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, teacher). The word joy is used 170 times in the Holy Scriptures.
As the Holy Spirit is birthing a quintuplet facet of supernatural joy, a five-fold understanding and revelation of eternal joy, a new deeper, wider and broader dimension, paradigm of re-JOY-cing over and through earthly circumstances, I pray that you will fully receive, accept and acknowledge the portion of HIS JOY that HE is generously giving to you. JOY is relational gift from knowing ABBA ADONAI, YESHUA and the Holy Spirit and is evidenced in the lives of HIS people. If your joy reserve is depleted, then I suggest you spend some time with the One who gives eternal JOY and become overflowing with fresh anointed abundant joy.
