Contend For Your Position


“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made you free, and do not be entangled again in the yoke of bondage.”

“Resist the devil and he shall flee from you.”

“You are of God little children, and that evil one touches you not, for greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.”

”Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and of good courage, do not be afraid, nor dismayed, for for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

“To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”

“Fear not Abram, for I AM your shield and your exceeding great Reward.”

“Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and daughters (along with their wives, they had been captured alive).  But David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.”

The LORD is saying: “Why do you labor for that which doesn’t satisfy?

Why do you spend your money on that which is not bread?

What about those things I have shown you, that I had told you I would do when you seek Me and search for Me with all your heart?

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of your God.  There is a fountain that is flowing straight from the Heart of your God.

The river and the streams are the flowing of My anointing in your life.

There have been times where My anointing has been flowing with great strength in your life, because I have seen the humility and the openness of your believing heart to listen and harken to the Word I have sent, and obeying the leading of My Spirit.

There have also been times where I sent My anointing, where the willingness of My servants has been compromised by the things of this world; being entangled with the old things that have detracted and choked out your willingness to walk in obedience to the Voice of the LORD.

You have become satisfied with just the smaller streams, and not the River.

It is time for you to step out into the River, step out into the flow of My Power, says the LORD.

I AM doing a new thing in the midst of My people who are called by My Name.

I will show you great and mighty things that you have not seen, nor ever heard of.

There is going to be a great shift in the midst of those who are called by My Name.

For the way things were done in the past will not be as effective as the working of My Spirit is to be in this day.

I have seen the working of those who oppose you, who actually believe that they are effectively stopping you from seeing and hearing My intent.

But I have given to you the Mind Of Christ, where the adversary’s intent is being exposed and revealed to My servants, the prophets.

And I AM sending My own intent to those who are seeking and searching for Me with their whole heart.

I AM revealing these things to you because the things of this world are more and more falling off your shoulders, and the effectual working of My mighty power is being revealed through those who believe, and call upon, My Holy Name

Now stand fast in the liberty where Christ has made you free, and be not entangled with the yoke the world has been attempting to place on you again.

It is now the effectual time for the outpouring of My Spirit.

It is time that you contend for your position.

It is time to believe in My intent for you, and eat from the tree of life.

Do not shrink down in fear, but know this day that I AM you shield and your exceeding Great Reward, says the LORD.”
