My beloved, don’t you realize I AM right there with you? I will never leave you or forsake you. Yes, you have entered into a new realm of MY holiness. You are noticing different things have changed but you mainly wonder why you can’t “feel” like you use to.
Don’t you remember when I told Thomas to believe ME? However, Thomas would not believe until Thomas could use all his senses to believe. Once he saw and felt the LORD in his senses he believed. Blessed are those who trust in ME whom they can’t hear, feel or see.
“Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou has believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed,”John 20:29.
Faith is not emotions or feelings. Emotions cannot be trusted beloved. Our trust must only be Christ in us the HOPE of GLORY. His WORD is forever settled in heaven and in the earth. To put trust in any man will cause you to be sidelined and it will pierce your hand. The fear of man brings with it a snare.
“Lo, thou trustest in the staff of this broken reed, on Egypt; whereon if a man lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it: so is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all that trust in him,” Isaiah 36:6.
“The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe,”Proverbs 29:25.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for evidence of things not seen. Faith is real and it has creative power like GOD created the world. GOD watches over HIS WORD to perform it.
Even if we have only a little mustard seed faith, we can do powerful things through the HOLY SPIRIT. Heaven and earth will pass away but MY WORD will never pass away.
Faith is settled in heaven “NOW” for every blood bought child of the GOD. His WORD in us is like a hammer that breaks rocks to pieces and like a fire that consumes. Our GOD is a consuming fire. There is total POWER in GODS WORD as we believe it and live it! NOW FAITH IS!
You were known and chosen from the very foundation of the world beloved. Open your eyes and see all the new things I AM doing for you and providing for you. You have sought me with your whole heart and you have become the Walking WORD, as living epistles seen and read of all men. For you must increase beloved. There will be greater things you will do because I have gone to the FATHER. I AM seated at the right hand of the FATHER making intercession for you that your faith will not fail. You are CHRIST in us the hope of all GLORY. I said greater works shall you do because you are MY vessels filled with the HOLY SPIRIT.
While in prayer I saw the image of the leaning tower of Pisa. I prayed and asked the LORD what that is about. Towers that are built on wrong foundations will lean and eventually fall. We need to ask the LORD to get that plumb-line out so we can measure ourselves against HIS WORD fully. We don’t want to be sinking sand and we are built on the ROCK of CHRIST JESUS.
“Thus he shewed me: and, behold, the Lord stood upon a wall made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in his hand,”Amos 7:7.
“And the LORD said unto me, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A plumbline. Then said the Lord, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel,”Amos 7:8.
It is not about all the hoop-lah and things we sense, it is all about CHRIST and HIS Church! The most important thing we have in this life is HIM. Everything else will pass away. So getting HIS WORD in us is the most important thing we can do! We all need to develop our prayer, intimacy and study of the WORD of GOD. Once we get that WORD in us it cannot be taken away.
Realize that we are like a castle and our mind which houses our soul (mind, will, intellect, personality) must be fortified. We must be careful what we allow ourselves to watch and listen to. We also need to be mindful of the type of people we are with. Yes, we are to reach out… we become all things to all men that we might win them. That doesn’t mean we have close fellowship with them.
Reaching out doesn’t mean we live with them. Don’t let the world pull you down into their level, if you do, you will be like they are, instead of helping them rise up in the faith. Our mind must be maintained as it houses our soul. So any of our senses, will be targeted by the enemy because he knows once a Christian knows who they are, and what authority they have, then he can’t stop them.
Guard your heart and mind for out of it comes the issues of life.
“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life,”Proverbs 4:23.
There are many people in the world that cannot have a bible. And others get into serious trouble by just being a Christian. The enemy hates Christians and hate’s GODS WORD. Watch the news and see fellow Christians be headed, tortured and they even kill little kids.
America needs to WAKE UP!
America hasn’t seen this type of persecution yet, however if you have any discernment when you watch the news, you can tell what is coming. HE will do nothing until HE shows his servants the prophets. HE is preparing HIS remnant. There will be a clear distinction line.
We must watch, pray, do and say what HE gives us. We also need to prepare ourselves for what is coming. Revival must begin in the heart of the believer’s.
TRUE REVIVAL NEEDS TO COME TO THE HEART OF AMERICA. Revivals that started in our infancy as America did, must come full circle. The way it began will be the way it ends.
The first will be last and the last will be first. GOD is coming back for The Church Triumphant!! HE has kept us and will continue to do so, because HE loves us unconditionally. Yes HE is amazing but HE also wants to prepare HIS people for the coming times. We are not orphans, HE will take care of us.
Preparation is never wasted time. Prepare beloved Prepare. AMEN? AMEN!
“I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread,” Psalm 37:25.
“Lo, thou trustest in the staff of this broken reed, on Egypt; whereon if a man lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it: so is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all that trust in him,”Isaiah 36:6.
“(Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed,”Luke 2:35.
