I am drawing you closer, My child, like never before have I drawn you. I want you to count the cost of persecution before you go any further, not that I would expose you to any of it, but I want you to make a full commitment unto death to serve Me. As in the future many will be exposed to gruel and fierce men, and many will be slaughtered and live a gruesome life in the hands of taskmasters, but I want you to know that you and your loved ones will live a life free from this type of cruelty.
I want you to know that My hand of favor is upon you, and that you will walk as one of My elect and favored ones, not that you will receive a crown like one of My martyrs will receive, but you will receive favor before men, and I will use you and your family to speak into many lives. The words that I will give you will set many captives free so that they can serve Me and promote My kingdom purposes. These people will then be used to speak into leader’s lives that rule over My people, and I will lessen the load of oppression because of the salvation of these souls.
So I want you to know that your life in Me has not been in vain. I have used you and prepared you through your hardships to humble you so I can use you in a mighty way through signs, wonders and miracles promoting My kingdom power so others will see and be brought in also. Yes, this is the day of salvation, to count the cost, to choose this day who you will serve. Will you hold on to your life and lose it or will you choose Me and live forever?
This is the hour of decision for many. Many are asked this day if they are willing to count the cost to make sure they have what it takes to be able to finish the race in victory. Yes, this is the day of salvation for you and your whole household. Yes, you are the seed for many to receive the light of their own salvation. Are you willing to pay the cost to set captives free, to raise the dead, heal the sick for freely you receive and freely you will give.
*Whatever you hear be very discerning whether the words are truth or counterfeit, faith or presumption, no matter where you hear them from for it is your responsibility!!!

Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
