Jesus said to me “Assured Election” and then I heard, “Wholeness in your soul only comes through My presence in your life.
How do you get the healing and deliverance you want? Is it not through communing with Me?
Or Me coming down to touch your soul?
Light is shining into your spirit and soul as I come to dwell in the praises of My People. So why is it so hard to worship?
It is hard because of entrapments of the enemy on your soul: your mind, your heart, your emotions. And attacks of the enemy that try to keep you bound and gagged, in various ways.
This is why you must NOT give into emotions all the time. You need to take every thought captive.
What does that mean you ask? How do I take every thought captive?
A thought comes to your mind, but you don’t know always if that is coming from you or a demon, or Me.
If the fruit of Salvation is Love, Joy, Peace, etc.,then something that comes from Me will give you these fruits. [Galatians 5:22]
Fear doesn’t come from Me. Intimidation does not come from Me.
When I speak to you, it doesn’t give you dark visions, or depression. Those things are all from the enemy of your soul, or your own emotions that have not been healed.
It’s not that I can’t say to your heart difficult things that stir up grief over society, or friends or family going through difficulty times. Those are always for prayer. Just as prophecy is for prayer.
When you don’t completely forgive someone, there remains waste material from the interactions or words, that hurt you.
Rats feed on the waste. Waste such as pain, grief, sorrow, anger and resentment, bitterness, unforgiveness.
Rats are creatures of the night and its darkness. They come nibbling at your soul, trying to cause even more pain and damage to your emotional well being.
The enemy hates the Jay I’ve given you. He will do anything to kill, steal or rob you of it.
Bitterness is at the root of unforgiveness. So then you need to renounce the bitterness, vengeance, any hate, unforgiveness, resentment, or anger, giving it to Me, asking Me to heal your soul from all the damage it’s done.
How does the enemy attack? He uses LIES.
He is the father of lies, and was a liar from the beginning. He intimidates, as in a religious spirit calling you back to the law instead of Grace.
He recites scriptures in your head to divert you to those thoughts that you are a failure. He’s an expert at distraction from the Truth, and I AM TRUTH. Thus you will have a downward spiral then from the grace I purchased for you.
He will make you feel worthless, guilty, condemned, discouraged, and depressed which makes the enemy so happy.
Self condemnation will take over, and all you’d done to build up your spirit man will be defeated in a moment of time, causing you more pain and suffering.
Then it will cause you to strive to do better, but the enemy is hoping you will give up on yourself, and if he could, to take your own life, making you feel suicidal in your unworthiness.
This is Not what I have called you to! You have to throw off, all the condemnation and lies, and Rebuke the enemy.
When you blow it, you have but to come to My Throne of Grace for help in time of need, and Confess, and receive My Grace. Then all the false feelings will be wiped out.
You can then thank Me for helping you to overcome. Because that is what I will do!
Praise Me even for the temptation, and forgive yourself for giving into the lies of the enemy.
I told you that if you confess your sins, I will forgive you!”
“I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I did not hide. I said, I will confess my transgressions to The LORD [continually unfolding the past till all is told] — then You [instantly] forgave me the guilt and iniquity of my sin. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!” Psalm 32:5
“Take with you words and return to The LORD. Say to Him, Take away all our iniquity; accept what is good and receive us graciously; so will we render [our thanks] as bullocks [to be sacrificed] and pay the confession of our lips.” Hosea 14:2 AMPC
“It takes time to overcome beloveds, all the sins of the generations and of the past in your life.
You have to learn new ways of coping and for anyone, that takes time. You are after all, only humans.
I came and lived and died, and rose again that you might have Life, and that more abundantly. Abundant life is lived when you have your being in Me!
When you commune with me daily, wash your feet (confess sins) daily. As you can see from the scriptures, part of this is Worship.
You don’t turn over your sins to me, then condemn yourself. That is the torment of a religious spirit. How many people in the Old Testament tried to keep The Law and couldn’t do it all perfectly?
This is why I came! To redeem you from the curses. I became a curse, that you would not have to bear the curses for your sins. But if you keep going back to The Law, then you are under The Law’s harsh taskmaster!
You have to forgive yourself, as well as others!
If I’ve already forgiven you and washed away your sins so that they are whiter than snow, then why do you cling to self-condemnation, and self judgments?
Paul did not even accuse himself, the scriptures say. So why do you keep accusing yourself?
For when you do, it opens you up to accusing others as well. These spirits tandem on each other.
So if you condemn yourself, you will also condemn others. If you condemn others, you will also condemn yourself much of the time.
Throw off the bondages of death and come out from under The Law and live by The Spirit of Truth!
I AM The Way, The Truth, and The Life!
Make your home in My Heart, as I have made My home in yours. Be not afraid of punishment, when I took the punishment on The Cross for you!”
“He was despised and rejected and forsaken by men, a Man of sorrows and pains, and acquainted with grief and sickness; and like One from Whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we did not appreciate His worth or have any esteem for Him. Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy].
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.
All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way; and The LORD has made to light upon Him the guilt and iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed, [yet when] He was afflicted, He was submissive and opened not His mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He opened not His mouth.
By oppression and judgment He was taken away; and as for His generation, who among them considered that He was cut off out of the land of the living [stricken to His death] for the transgression of my [Isaiah’s] people, to whom the stroke was due?
And they assigned Him a grave with the wicked, and with a rich man in His death, although He had done no violence, neither was any deceit in His mouth.
Yet it was the will of The LORD to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief and made Him sick. When You and He make His life an offering for sin [and He has risen from the dead, in time to come], He shall see His [spiritual] offspring, He shall prolong His days, and the will and pleasure of The LORD shall prosper in His hand.
He shall see [the fruit] of the travail of His soul and be satisfied; by His knowledge of Himself [which He possesses and imparts to others] shall My [uncompromisingly] righteous One, My Servant, justify many and make many righteous (upright and in right standing with God), for He shall bear their iniquities and their guilt [with the consequences, says The LORD].” Isaiah 53:3-11 AMPC
“It rains on the good and the bad, so do not condemn yourself or others when bad things happen to you.
Every life has a different purpose and expression on earth.
Pride is one of the biggest reasons for suffering in the world. For if you think you know more than Me, or boast in your opinions of others, or you think you are only a worm in this life, when I have made you My precious treasure, then you are giving in to Leviathan.
For you are as I was in this life. My Father Loves you ans He Loves Me!
You are not less than others, nor greater than others, in My Heart!
In this world, there are many differing governments and environments to grow up in.
Do not look down on the oppressed of the earth! All mankind save the spawn of the evil ones, are precious to me.
You are My peculiar Treasure!
I Love you, and will Love you forever!”
Peculiar: H5459 cgullah – to shut up; wealth (as closely shut up); a jewel, peculiar (treasure); proper good, special. It means something carefully watched over.

Rouse yourselves and keep awake, and strengthen and invigorate what remains and is on the point of dying; for I have not found a thing that you have done [any work of yours] meeting the requirements of My God or perfect in His sight.
So call to mind the lessons you received and heard; continually lay them to heart and obey them, and repent. In case you will not rouse yourselves and keep awake and watch, I will come upon you like a thief, and you will not know or suspect at what hour I will come.
