AT THE FATHER'S FEET
ADAPTATION TO PERFECT WILL
June 4, 2013
I want you to know that it isn't
just the adaptation to the environment around you, but it is adapting to My
perfect will. For the enemy goes about as a lion seeking all the he can devour,
and he goes about sneakily, subtly, without you ever knowing that he has invaded
For this is the beginning of woes. Many will begin to get their eyes open to the seriousness of the hour, to the fact that they have opened themselves up to the enemy, and have lost much ground. Instead of using their time wisely, they have gone about like there is no tomorrow in that they have wasted much precious time not preparing for what is at the door.
They will begin to realize that they do not have a heart that longs after Me. They have grown cold and complacent because they have bought into the lies of the enemy that they can enjoy life like the world and still call themselves My people.
This is not true that if you live like the world then you become like the world. and that is losing your inheritance as a child of the King. You no longer have the privileges of a joint heir. You have come under the authority of who you have served. You have lost the rights and privileges of My son.
I want you to know that if you turn now while there is still time, you will regain your position in Me once again, but you must cry out for repentance, and admit that you were wrong in justifying sin. You must also admit that you had become a false testimony of one who has been saved by grace.
For a young child in Me knows in their heart that they must walk in holiness. They know right off that you must not pervert it by saying you can have the world and have Me too. But when they see those who should be much more mature in Me justifying their sinful ways, they start to doubt the truth and believe that once you are saved you are always saved.
For you cannot walk and talk like the world and lead My babes in the way they must go. And if you cause one of My little ones who I gave My life for to stumble, then you are worse than one having a millstone tied around the neck and had fallen into deep water.
I give you a strong word because I love you. You must come up to the position I called you to. You must cast off the chains that bind you and run the race freely for the time is running out. You might not regain all your ground if you don't take it seriously.
You must cry out for My grace to recover all that the enemy has stole from you. For the enemy has seen you as threat and has set out to deter you by attacking your heart for holiness.
Yes, he knew you were a threat from the time you were born. He was around when people confessed life over you and the calling I have had on your life. And that is when he began to throw you off target.
Regain your stance in Me. Flow freely in My truth for I will restore it to you. Humble yourself before Me and I will lift you up. Cry out for the holy conviction you once had. Cry out for Truth and I will surely set you free.
SPRING UP, O WELL
May 25, 2013
This is the time and the hour that
My people must rise up in the power of their God, and put down the cares of the
world, and become the people I called them to be. For many have put My will to
the side and pressed in to do their own will. Many do not consult me as if they
should do what they have planned and have gone on with their plans alone. For
if you do not consult Me about the matter, then you are on your own without My
blessing or protection.
Repent and turn from your way of independence, and follow after Me, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; but if you continue on your own, then your god is your own desires, and you no longer have My protection, and this should not be.
For I have brought you out from a land of wickedness so that you would be blessed in a land flourishing with good fruit in abundance. Yes, your land would be fruitful, and you would prosper in all that I sent you out to do.
Do not allow the enemy to lie to you, and tempt you with the delicacies of the world, for they are temporal, and will not bring you the nourishment or the strength that you need. They will only bring heartache and hardship, because you are striving after the wind, and it is all done in vain.
Return unto Me and I will give you the fruit of the land. I will give you all that I promised. A hope and a future I will give you if you wait upon Me and trust Me as if I am your own Father. What I said I would do, I will also perform.
So I call you to My side offering you the gift that you lack and it is repentance. I pour out upon you My mercy and grace. I put a crown of favor upon your head where you would be open to the blessings from above and also from man. I will make you once again a bountiful land that I can rejoice in. You are My bride and I am your Bridegroom, your Beloved.
Spring up, O well within your soul. Bubble up and be free. Cast off the chains that bind you around your mind and your heart. Cast off the fetters of deception and run free for surely I, the Truth, have set you free. Yes, this is the time and the hour to rise up in My power. Bubble up so that the world can see My power and My joy within you!!!
PREPARING FOR FINAL HOUR
May 22, 2013
Draw your attention not to the
circumstances that surround your life that can easily drag you down if you allow
them to, but draw your attention to the fact that I am faithful to deliver you
out of the snare of the enemy and use all things that you face for your good.
For I am the One that has led you to the water, but you are the one that has to take the step of faith to even drink of it. For I have given you the River of Life to drink from, and I have given you the Tree of Life that you must eat from. For I have given you already all things that pertain to life and godliness, but you must take responsibility to do your part in order to grow strong.
These are the days that evil will grow worse with each day, but at the same time My power is growing stronger within you. And as you gather together to worship Me, I create in you united a bonfire of My love that burns brighter and brighter.
When you unite yourselves with one mind and in one accord, you are creating within you the atmosphere in which I can move; but if you backbite one another and give into a critical spirit judging one another, you are opening the door so that the enemy can enter and devour the good work that I have begun within you. And then you must start all over regaining the ground lost, and renewing trust to become that undivided unit once again.
For you are a body, and you must function as one. You must love one another and care for one another as if you were caring for the members of your physical body. Every one has an important role in My plan and purpose for your life and for promoting My kingdom and My will on earth.
So I want you to take it seriously your part and function in the body in which you dwell. Know that everything you do has an effect on one another. If one hurts, then you all hurt, and if one is blessed, then you all are blessed.
You must move toward the direction I am leading you as a unit, and I am Captain in charge. You are a troop of soldiers, and your leaders you must follow their direction. You must love and trust one another and trust Me that I will lead and guide you into all truth.
Yes, this is the end of all times, and I am readying you for battle much larger than you have ever expected. Take advantage of every moment that you are free to gather together unhindered by outer forces. Take advantage of every moment that you are free to partake of My word. Eat it and partake of it like it would be your last meal. For you must have it hidden in your heart so that you can stand strong against the evil one.
I love you, My people, but you must remain sober, diligent, trustworthy, and faithful servants. You must spend your time wisely preparing. You must be ready! In order to see Me move in signs, wonders, and miracles pulling down strongholds over the land, you must be the vessel that I am able to move through.
For surely you will go from glory to glory for I am faithful to complete the good work that I have begun in you. I would not bring you this far to leave you, but you must cooperate with Me. For surely this is the hour for war. It is My battle, but I must be able to use you as the vessel I will move through!
FROM YOUR SLUMBER
May 10, 2013:
Awake, you sleeper. Awake from your
slumber and have clear vision for there are wolves among you ready to devour the
flock, but I have stood strong to My call to believe for you that I would not
lose anyone that the Father has given to Me. I have given you My word to obey
that you would have abundance and life to the fullest measure
Many of you have allowed darkness to blind your vision and have allowed many voices to overwhelm My still small voice within you. This is the day that I bring eye salve that you may see again, and I bring healing that you may hear again. I give you the power to discern right from wrong and truth from error once again.
For these wolves have polluted My waters with bitter deceptions. For yes, they have brought in every wind and doctrine that I do not want you to follow. They are out to deter you from the path that brings life and lead you to the one that brings destruction.
This nation is sick from within. It breeds poison from the asp of the deceiving one. Yes, the poison of vipers have been loosed upon this land for My people have been lulled to sleep. Yes, they have been mesmerized where they do not realize the seriousness of the hour. And yes, many have been used to give over authority to the enemy through deception and have given him much land.
And now it is time to take back what the enemy stole. Yes, it is time to rise up and be restored to the calling I put upon your life. I give out in abundance the gift of repentance and grace that you would draw close to Me and cast off any weight that would hinder you. For now it is time to arise and take the land for it is not too late. It is time to run, and sound the alarm, and to proclaim truth over it.
From the rising of the sun to the going down of it I am to be praised, and to be honored as your God, and to be placed first in your heart and your life. For I am your God, and I am your Captain, and I call you to follow Me as troops into the battle zone to pull down strongholds over the land by your faith, and your love, and obedience.
I call you mighty warriors, and I call you My restored ones, obedient unto death. I call you My fearless ones, those who will not back down. Once you receive this call of restoration, you will receive renewed vision and ears that are sensitive to My call. You will have a determination to do My will like never before.
Yes, this is the day for battle, to take back what the enemy has stole from you, to get positioned in your ranks, to let out a victory cry, and to march forward! Yes, this is the time for war!!!!
CALLED TO COME UP HIGHER
May 8, 2013
calling you to come up higher. Many have found themselves at a place where they
haven't been able to move up from, and at the same time they know that they
cannot go back to the place they have come from. At the place they are now they
know that they don't have what it takes to move up higher.
Many have been struggling in their own strength trying to overcome the onslaughts of the enemy. If they weren't battle weary and fatigued, they would know that in their own strength they cannot succeed. So I call you this day to come off from the place you have found yourself to be by faith by reaching out, and taking Me by the hand, and allowing Me to pull you up higher.
There are dangers all around, and if you are not standing on the solid ground of My truth, you can lose footage and slip off into many snares of the wicked one. You need to stand on solid ground by partaking of My word where it brings you life and the wisdom you need to escape the grasp of the enemy who surrounds you day and night trying to catch you at your weakest point.
Be assured that I have prayed that you would overcome and have victory over every attack from the enemy. I have prayed that I would not lose any one that I have called to follow Me wherever I would go. For yes, these are treacherous times, and I have prepared you through the many trials that you have faced. And even though you do not feel that you have the strength to move on, I want you to believe that I wouldn't bring you this far to leave you.
I would not call you into a battle that you could not win. And now I want you to hang on a little longer for you are right at the door of the breakthrough that you need. And yes, you are right at the door for the healing you've been believing for and for the manifestation of your loved ones.
Keep pressing in believing that My kingdom will come and yes, that My will be done on earth as it is in heaven. And I want you to believe that you have what it takes to overcome any attack of the enemy, and that I would open up a door of escape that you can bear the temptation of the enemy to try to get you to give up.
And I set you free of the fear that grips your heart. If you look at it, the enemy can only roar at you, and he can only attack your flesh and your mind, but he can never separate you from My love and what I have set before you. I have promised you a hope and a future, and if you have not found yourself in that place yet, then believe that what I promised I am also able to perform.
I will bring you into your promised land, a life of abundance, prosperous, a healthy and overcoming life. Yes, rise up and take My hand, and I will lift you off from the place you have found yourself to be. I have never forsaken you. You are not stranded on a deserted island. You are in the palm of My hand underneath My wings of protection. You are My child, and I will shelter you.
I will strengthen you. I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness. Walk by faith and not be what you feel or see, and continue to trust Me. You will see Me move in awesome signs and wonders as I break down the strongholds over the land. I am your Sovereign God and yes, I am in total control!
THE SECRET PLACE WITHIN
April 26, 2013
Keep instructing the brethren
to trust Me no matter what they may feel or see that they may have abundance
in life, and freedom, and the liberty to serve Me above all things. Yes,
that they may have life and life abundantly.
Choose this day who you shall serve whether it be serving the desires of your own will or whether you would put My will above your own. For these are treacherous times, and you must develop that secret place within you where you shall dwell. It is a secret place that is full of My love, and My peace, full of My strength and My power.
I have made you a power house of dynamic strength for it is I who dwells within you, and the same Spirit that raised Me from the dead dwells in you, and I will quicken you if you stay close to Me feasting upon My word and basking in My presence.
This is how you are made strong. There is no other way. You must come before Me as a way of life for I am your life breath. Yes, I am the air that you breathe. You must not quench this life flowing within you by shutting Me out by putting other things before you.
I stress the importance of this time of preparation to store My word within you, to develop your shield to be able to quench the fiery darts of the evil one, and to ignite your sword that it may glisten with the strength to be able to cut off the head of the giant that may come against you.
I have called you My mighty warriors, and I have given you time to rest, to prepare, to get built up, but you must take advantage of it, and give high value to it. Come before Me now that I can build you up.
THE COMMAND OF GOD
April 23, 2013
Do only what I call you to do, and
say only what I would have you to say for if you go beyond My perfect will in
your life, you open yourself up to great danger. For there are ferocious wolves
out and about ready to devour you. They are ready to pounce upon you at the drop
of a hat. They are watching and waiting for you to get out of the range of
protection that I have set up for you.
So I call you to My side like a great Shepherd who loves each and every one of His flock. I call you to intensify your devotion and service unto Me. I call you to warn you that if you leave My perfect will to do what you desire, you will open yourself up to great danger.
I am not calling you to fear your enemy, but to fear Me, to honor Me, and to obey Me alone. For when you develop that holy fear and reverence within you, you will not desire to come out of that realm I called you to. For if you stay by My side, you will be in the place of great protection, power and strength.
For you are seated with Me at the right hand of the Father, the place of all power and might, and I have placed the enemy under your feet if you stay under My authority. For you can only have authority over the enemy if you stay under My authority.
For I have called you "My called out ones", "My sanctified and set apart ones". Yes, you are holy in My sight, and I have called you to war against the evil one, to pull down strongholds over the land. Yes, to tear down the enemy's plans and to build up My plans, to sanctify and set apart those called to battle by preparing them to carry their sword with great might, to stand boldly behind My shield, to be covered securely with My armor.
Yes, I go before you for I AM your Captain, and yes, I AM your Rear Guard. My angels protect you for many forever surround you. Do not fear for there are many more who are for you than they who are against you.
Who is Sovereign over the nations of the world? And yes, who is in control and victorious, and who paid the price and is King of kings and Lord of all lords? For yes, it is I, the Lord God Almighty, the Prince of Peace, Mighty Warrior! And if I lead you in the battle, who has enough power to be able to stand against you?
So hold your head high, be not afraid! You are a mighty conqueror with weapons of great power. Hide My word in your heart, and allow My love to flow, for greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world!
March 29, 2013
Beloved let us love one another, for love is of God and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God! – 1 John 4:7
What is the greatest command that I have given you, except that you love Me with all your heart, mind, soul and strength, and to love your neighbor as you love yourself, but if you do not love yourself, how can you love others? In order to love yourself you must see yourself the way that I see you for I am your loving Father, and I see you perfect in My eyes. I see you through the shed blood of the Lamb, and if I can see you perfect, holy, and spotless, and love you unconditionally, then you must see yourself in the same light, and love yourself unconditionally.
That is what the major problem in My body is that many are still holding on to the past hurts and failures instead of receiving My forgiveness and forgiving themselves they are holding on to them. In order to love and forgive others you must forgive yourself!
For I am doing a new thing, and it will spring forth suddenly, but you must be ready to be a part of it and to partake of it to the fullest portion. Whenever you see a downfall in others, you must see them through the light of My son instead of marking them with judgment. Didn’t I say that I desire mercy rather than judgment? If I can look past the outer layer of your soul and look straight to the heart, why can’t you?
I am not condoning a false grace, which says that whatever your soul does is all right that it is already forgiven so that I can do whatever I desire. That is false grace, and there is great judgment against those who teach this and do not repent of it, but I am saying that I can see the heart that one is working at overcoming their shortcoming and weaknesses; and love covers over a multitude of sin. You must believe, and hope, and expect one to overcome, and be able to walk in all the light I have given them.
When you start correcting, and criticizing, and placing false judgment upon one another, you are coming against My body that I gave My life for. I shed My blood that they would be whole and spotless. I forever intercede that they would overcome, and enter into My kingdom and power, and walk as a mature son of God. Then why do you give into the snare of the fowler and place judgment upon them?
This is the day that I am separating the wheat from the tares, the goat from the sheep. Yes, I know who truly are Mine and you can tell them by their fruit. Those who love one another, and are willing to pay the price to be patient, long suffering, gentle, and kind to one another, no matter how unlovely they are towards you, are truly My disciples.
If the world can’t tell you by your love, then how can you usher in the end time harvest of souls that I gave My life for. Many would fall to the wayside, because they cannot be drawn to Me if you don’t share My love with them. If they can’t see My love, then they will go where they are accepted, and that usually is not a safe place.
So you have a responsibility, everyone who is called by My name, to be a light in a dark place, and share the example of loving when it is the hardest to do. For the natural love cannot do this, but the true love that flows from the heart of the Father will overcome the darkness, and overcome, and flow like a mighty river out to the lost.
They overcame by the blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony, and they loved not their life unto death.
IF MY PEOPLE WOULD……
February 7, 2013
If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. - 2 Chron 7:14
Everything that is to be
accomplished in My kingdom is contingent upon whether My people will
cooperate in doing My will. For mighty things can be done immediately and
even suddenly, but the hindrance has always been with the cooperation of My
people placing My will above their own. For I am waiting upon you to seek My
face, to know My will, and to receive the grace to carry it out.
When you take the first step forward in accomplishing My will, I will meet you there, and take you by the hand, and lead you to the next step, and so on. But if you drag your feet, and hesitate to take that first step of faith, then I cannot go any further without your cooperation.
If you want to take a major role in My end time events of overthrowing the kingdom of darkness, then you have to step up to the plate, and make that commitment to do My will above your own. You must be determined to seek My face, to know My still small voice, in order to follow Me.
There will come a time, and soon, when you will not easily be able to gather with the saints. You will no longer have that opportunity to have someone hand feed you My word. You must be mature enough to seek it out for yourself, and seek Me to lead you and guide you into all truth.
For darkness will cover the earth, and there will be false signs, and wonders, and miracles, and you will have to discern for yourself what is the true from the counterfeit. You must have My word hidden in your heart, and not bits and pieces, where you picked out what you chose to follow, in order to balance it all out. For there is grace, and there is truth, and there is a perfect balance in order to walk in My perfect will, and also to cooperate with Me in ministering to the lost, and those who have fallen behind in the church.
For this is the days of the latter rain outpouring, but it is also the day of the great falling away. I must have My people determined to walk and talk with Me in the cool of the day, to place My will above their own, to seek My kingdom and righteousness in order to have all your needs met. For yes, I will lead you, and guide you into all Truth, but you must seek Me first. You must be humble, and teachable, and work with Me allowing the fire of My love to purge off all the dross.
In order to partake of the great outpouring of My spirit you must be a yielded vessel that My glory can flow through. You must love Me above all things, and love your neighbor as yourself. You must do unto others what you would have them do unto you. Yes, you must live My word in order to have abundant life.
For I promised you health, and I promised you prosperity, but it was contingent upon whether your soul prospered in Me. So make the choice today to serve Me, to love Me, and to be yielded, to love not your life unto death, to put forth My commands above your own will. For truly this is the hour of My power, but I am waiting upon you. Yes, If My people would follow Me, then I would lift them up, and move mightily through them!
ONE WAY TO SAFETY
February 1, 2013
For those who dwell in the secret place of the
Most High, they shall dwell under the Shadow of the Almighty.
For I tell you this day that if you put your trust in any other measure besides the abiding presence of My love, you will become disappointed. For every other measure of protection is only temporal, and you need the required measure of protection that is higher, that is stronger, that can withstand any force that may come against you, and that is the abiding presence of My love.
For if you place your trust in Me alone, I will not let you down. For didn't I say that no weapon formed against you can prosper? A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you! That means that bombs can be falling all around you, but you will remain safe within the secret place of My love.
For My love is powerful, and yes, it is strong, and it covers over a multitude of sins, and it covers you like a blanket. It can shield you from any force of the evil one. You are engulfed within the force field of My glory which can blind any enemy!
For what is the source of all danger and what has been conquered at the Cross? For yes, you are seated with Me at the right hand of the Father, the place of all power and might. And you are seated in a place higher than any power or principality.
So I tell you this day to remain with Me, walk with Me, talk with Me in the cool of the day. I said that no weapon formed against you can prosper. I said that I would be your rear guard and that My angels would lift you up if you slipped upon a rock, and that rock could be upon the side of a mountain. I said that if you had the faith of a mustard seed that you could even say to that mountain, "Be moved!", and it would move!
You have weapons within you of great strength. You have My spirit that raised Me from the dead. You have the same Spirit within you that split the Red Sea and made a way of escape!
You are hidden with Me in the Father if you choose to walk in the spirit and not in the flesh. If you fight evil with carnal weapons, surely you will die. But if you place your trust in Me, you will remain safe.
And anything that you will face I will walk through it with you. And you will have peace, and you will have rest knowing that all things I allow work together for your good.
So I remind you this day to continue to prepare, and to continue to remain within the secret place of the Most High, for surely you will not be disappointed!
YOU DETERMINE YOUR
January 22, 2013
Do you sometimes wonder why
everything doesn't always go the way you expected or would love for it to
go? Well, I am here to tell you that in order to get into My kingdom you
must go through much tribulation, but I also promised that you would live
abundantly. You probably wonder how does that all fit together?
It is all according to your attitude towards what you go through that determines whether you live or die, are blessed or cursed, have abundance in prosperity effecting every area of your life, or having a life of poverty. Yes, it is all according to your attitude.
One person could be a blessing in their pain to others, and one could be a pain to others in their blessing. Yes, you could allow your circumstances dictate your life, or you could have your life dictate your circumstances. Many allow the blessings I have given them to be robbed by the enemy just by the way they live their life. Do you remember reading in My word in Proverbs, Proverbs 26:24, that a man would be more blessed on his roof top with a crust of bread than to be in the house having a fine dinner with a brawling woman?
Many allow their blessings of the present robbed by just worrying about the future. Didn't I say to take no thought for tomorrow for today has enough of its own to deal with? Maybe not in those exact words written in scripture, but I want to make it clear to you that your attitude towards your circumstances can make a world of difference in what the outcome would be.
What you think in your heart you will become. What you confess with your mouth determines what you will become. Yes, life and death are in the power of your tongue so speak blessings over your situation. Be thankful in all things for this is My will for your life. Be merry, have a cheerful heart, and you can effect many lives.
Allow My love to flow no matter what, and you could win your enemy. Let bitterness flee or it will poison your heart. Allow every situation to become a challenge for you for the more you die out to your will the more My will for your life will take over. And that is the promise of a hope and a future for all of you.
So catch yourself before you fall into the snare of wanting your own way. Take what you've learned in My word and apply it to your life. Count your blessings, and you will end up with much more to share with others. Allow My love to flow and not bitterness.
Count each trial as an opportunity to grow into the maturity of a full son. Let My life flow, and you will soon know that all things I allow does work for your good if you keep your eyes on Me, trust Me, and do not listen when the enemy says to look at how bad everything is becoming.
Tell him to flee, that he is a liar, and that you have the victory over sin, hell and the grave, because you do if your life is truly hidden in Me!
LET MY RIVER FLOW
December 14, 2012
the deer pants after the water brook, so my soul pants after You, O Lord!
To Know Me is to love Me, and to spend your precious time with Me; that is, to give Me the first fruits of your day, to spend time with Me to learn to walk and talk with Me in the cool of the day, like Adam did before the Fall.
I am calling My people once again to stir within their hearts that deep longing after deep desire to be at one with Me, in deep communion with Me, to learn of My ways, to walk like I would walk, and to say what I would say, because you know Me so well you know how I would handle different situations.
You are learning to put down your flesh and walk in the spirit by: crucifying the desires of your own will, to be able to be blessed by putting My will before your own. And you are learning that to crucify your selfish desires and to put other's needs above your own, you have the assurance that I will take care of your needs.
If everyone who calls themselves by My name would humble themselves, and seek My face and pray, then I will lead you, and guide you into all Truth, and you will know My will, and desire, and even be blessed to be able to walk in it.
Learning comes by the experience of seeing the pleasure that comes by seeking first My kingdom and My righteousness. To desire My will you need to draw close, and walk with Me, and learn from Me My ways in how to handle different situations.
My ways are so much higher than man's, and you need to always be guarded not to fall into the snare of selfish living; only being concerned that your needs are being met above those that I have called you to serve.
For this is the day and the hour that I am separating those who desire to go deeper into My plan and purpose for their lives……those who are willing to do unto others what you would desire others to do for you; to love and care for your neighbor as if they are your own family.
This is hard when many don't even have that desire to care for their own flesh and blood because of selfish living and the fear of lack……if you help others, will my needs be met, will I have enough if I give to others?
I have made you like a free flowing stream that replenishes itself when it keeps flowing, but if you dam it up, then death enters in, and stagnation, and pollution. If you continue to give, you will be kept replenished, all your needs will be met. What you sow unto others, you will reap.
If you sow into My kingdom first, then all your needs will be met. If you lend to the poor, you are giving unto Me, and I will reimburse you with plenty more benefits than you could ever imagine receiving. Take the risk, step out in faith, follow My leading, and see what I will do in your own life.
Yes, this is the day that I am drawing you near. I want to teach you My ways. I want to live my desire through you. Do not dam up the flow of My river. Let the prosperity flow unto the multitudes. Be a stream that I can trust My riches to.
If you want to see Light and Life, then you must stomp out the darkness. Love is your greatest force against the enemy. Where there is love, there is no fear for My love is drenched in My faith and My enabling power to carry you to the end with victory.
Seek My face and I will show you My ways which will overcome all the strategies of the evil one. Keep your mind set on Me and I will give you perfect peace. I will lead you through the storm in safety, and assurance knowing that your steps are being ordered by Me.
If you feel you have missed it or have done wrong, look for the good that will come out of it. For whatever you do if your motives are pure, you will receive goodness and prosperity in every area of your life. Follow the leading of your heart. When I said to bless your enemies, to pray for those who persecute you or use you, I meant to pray blessings and grace over these people. How do you expect to turn them around if they can't see My light in you?
Love covers a multitude of sin. My love washed away the sin of the whole world, but I had to choose the will of My Father above My own. So if you want to see greater works flow, with signs and wonders and miracles, then you must die out to your own will and seek to do Mine.
This is the day of the great falling away all because many choose to live according to their selfish desires and to take matters into their own hands rather than to just trust Me. Learn from the mistakes of others. Learn from the times you walked in the flesh which brought death to your spirit man.
If you want Life to flow, you must surely die!
A HEART OF DESPERATION
December 1, 2012
What is having a heart of desperation? What
does it entail, but having a deep longing for My presence; to walk and talk
with Me in the cool of the day, as in the beginning in the Garden, but when
sin entered it, it brought a big division in the intimacy that I once had
with man, of that communion and purpose that I created man in the beginning
for me to have.
That wall of independence went up, and man tried to walk alone without Me, to work out their own plan of survival, but it did not work. On your own you will only have hardship without the Light and Wisdom to carry you through in order to prosper in the purpose that you were created.
Man has been stiff necked and hard hearted without the Love that is needed in order to grow and mature to become My true sons and daughters. I have allowed My wall of protection to come down, because of the sin of pride and independence, including rebellion which is witchcraft, which brings you under the Curse of the Law. For if My people will walk in My ways with Me, you will have abundant blessing, but if you go off on your own, making your own will your god, you will have the Curse effecting every area of your life.
I have given you the beauty in holiness with the choice of following after Me. I gave My life blood so that you would have life, and I gave you the choice to include Me in your life, and to obey Me, but still you keep that wall up that came with sin. That sin of independence that causes you to live your life on your own, to make your own choices, and to leave Me out of fellowship, but I desire to be a part of your life, not one that you just call yourself by My name, one that you know of Me, but are not desperate to be with Me, like I am for you.
What will it take for My people to return unto Me? The beauty of nature, the comforts of a home, a loving family, and all your needs met, many just take it all for granted, and they leave Me out of their life. I've had to chastise. I've had to punish. I had to separate Myself from you because of your sinful ways. I will not intrude upon you. I can only knock and wait until you open the door of your heart wide for Me to enter. You cannot continue to shut Me out.
Many times I have given you what you wanted because you did not want Me. I have given you the desires of your heart which has only brought curses, the result of serving other gods. I have given you the kings you wanted to rule over you, but it only brought you pain. If you do not have that heart of desperation for Me, no matter what I do, I cannot make you choose to love Me, and to want to walk with Me, and to choose My wisdom over your own. I am a loving God, but also I am a just God, and I cannot allow sin to rule and reign. It must be punished.
I gave My life so that you would be free to live My life in blessing, but still after this sacrifice, you choose to walk alone. What is there left for Me to do? After you trample over My sacrifice of giving My blood for you, there is no longer a sacrifice to cover you over. You must die out to your wicked ways and choose Life in order to be saved from the wrath to come. You cannot escape the judgment if you will not bend your knee and humble yourself before Me.
So you really think I don't see the error of your ways? Do you really believe that I approve of what you delight in? Do you really care if what you do is an abomination to Me? Why do you choose to stand with those who hate what I stand for? Do you still care to call yourself by My name?
I know your heart and where you stand today. Your choice is to either break down willingly, to fall upon Me, your Rock and strong tower, or will it be that I, the Rock of your offense, should fall upon you to crush you like powder? Will even then will you return to Me?
Judgment has begun in My house. The price you will have to pay for the choices you have made. The fire will purge the dross, and those who are pure will stand, but those who truly aren't of Me, when the fire falls, will only prove deep down who has that heart of desperation but it has only been hardened over through the hurts and pain.
This is the time of the revealing of My true bride. Those who you have walked and talked with about Me may no longer walk with you. Will you still stand with a heart that trusts me? "Thou He slay Me, I will not depart. I will receive willingly the fire of Your love, and I will return. I will receive My healing and walk with you!"
That is the heart of desperation, that humble and repentant heart, that I am looking for. This is the day to truly cry out for a heart of repentance from the sin of independence and from following after other gods!
