Chapter Six: Your Face – The
Place of Blessing
The Aaronic Blessing
"And the Lord said to Moses. Say to
Aaron and his sons, This is the way you
shall bless the Israelites." "Say to them,
the Lord bless you and watch, guard and
keep you: The Lord make His face to shine
upon and enlighten you and be gracious
(kind, merciful, and giving favor) to
you:" "The Lord lift up His (approving)
countenance upon you and give you peace
(tranquility of heart and life
continually). And they shall put My name
upon the Israelites, and I will bless
them." (Numbers 6:22-27, Amplified)
The Face of Relationship and
The revelation for this book came as a
result of doing a study on Relationship.
The face is the part of the body that
actually determines what kind of
relationship there will be between two or
more people. True relationship cannot be
achieved without "the face." Without the
face, we cannot relate one to another. I
cannot look at your elbow or waist or foot
and discern your needs. I must look into
your eyes if I want to see your soul and
understand who you are.
Statistics show that one of the greatest
fears of mankind is speaking in front of
other people. This could be restated as
speaking in front of other "faces." After
all, for the most part, the face is the
only thing beside the hands that is
constantly visible to others. The rest of
the body is usually covered.
So then, we are not afraid of people per
se, but we are afraid of their "faces." No
wonder, Jeremiah 1:8 states, "Do not be
afraid of their faces, for I am with you
to deliver you, says the Lord."
The original intent of God was for the face of
mankind to reveal his image and likeness.
Meaning, that the face would bless, shine
upon, extend grace, give approval, accept,
encourage, and lift up others. Why then is the
average person afraid of the faces of others?
The reason is that in reality, the face is the
place where you and I may have received
cursing, rejection, mockery, fear, verbal
abuse, dis-approval, disdain, scorn and
everything BUT the blessing.
Chapter Two: Please Don't Laugh At Me
The Face of Mockery
When someone laughs with you, it is quite
different than someone laughing at you. The
physical, mental and emotional response to
being laughed at by others, can cause what I
like to call a paralysis and imprisoning of
your abilities and dreams. The human response
to being laughed at can and does cause
negative energy to be released within your
being. Negative energy (thoughts, feelings,
decisions), can only produce negative actions
and deeds. In order to become a "place of
blessing" in the lives of others, we must
become aware of the "spirit of mockery", what
it's motives are, and how it thinks and
Mockery is one of the most treacherous spirits
operating in the world today. It will hinder
you, imprison your talents, abilities and
creativity. Mockery will keep you from
becoming all that you were born and destined
It is a spirit whose sole purpose is to rob,
kill and destroy YOU. Its ultimate objective
is to humiliate you in public or in the
intimate presence of others.
Fear of "Their" Faces
I remember how I felt as a seventh grade
student at school during weekly assembly hall
gatherings. Often when someone would sing a
song and suddenly go off key, the laughter and
mocking of the kids was awful. I could
actually feel the embarrassment of the person
singing. I recall vowing that I would never
put myself in a position for others to laugh
at my attempts.
This fear spilled over into my life for years.
I always desired to sing in the church choir
or with a singing group when I was a
teen-ager, and was even told I had a good
voice. However, I was afraid of auditioning
because of the fear of mockery, so I never got
to sing in the choir. Fifty years later, who
is singing all over the place? You guessed it.
There is nothing like being set "free to be."
Fear's purpose is always to keep you from
stepping out of your area of confidence or
your comfort zone, and stepping into God's
area of limitless possibilities.
7 Steps in Overcoming the Spirit and Fear
Once you understand the objectives of the
spirit of mockery, you become a candidate to
overcome. When the eyes of your understanding
are enlightened, you begin to "see" your way.
Seeing your way means you will understand:
1) The divisive schemes of the enemy of your
2) Others are only able to give to you what
they have "in" them, regardless of what you
desire or need "from" them; Let your face
impart to others what you desire to receive
from their face. If you desire approval, then
give approval first. If you desire a smile,
then you smile first. If you want a
compliment, then you give one first. If you
desire to be heard, then be willing to listen
to others first.
Be willing to give to the faces of others what
you want to receive from their faces. Love?
Then give love first. Respect? Then give
respect first. We often tend to demand from
others what we should have first given to
Hopefully you will quickly be able to identify
yourself and others as you realize that "the
face" is the place where all true relationship
begins. It is the place where you are either
accepted or rejected, esteemed or mocked,
loved or hated, exalted or humiliated. It is a
place of great power, this face of yours. Its
members (eyes, ears, nose and mouth) hold the
keys to life and death.
