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 Intimacy
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 operates.

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 to be.

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 of Mockery
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 soul;
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 them.

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.
