“Declare My Word to the nations and speak TRUTH to the lost.
Do not hold back your voices any longer. Now is the time!
Now is the time to worship, to declare My Praises to the ends of the earth!
Raise up your voices and shout from the rooftops what you hear in your ear. Stop cowering in the corner and declare BOLDLY the truth.
How will they know without a preacher?”
“How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?
As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!” Romans 10:14-15 NKJV.
“Be led by the Spirit of TRUTH. Ask what to speak and I will fill your mouth! Do not turn away from the opportunity of saving souls any longer.
I will hold you accountable if you do not speak up when I tell you to! I will hold that man or woman, or child’s soul to your account!
Be open to listening to me in the grocery store, in the market, in the workplace, in the home of your friend. Speak what I give you to speak, and I will follow it with signs and wonders.
Be obedient to the Spirit. Walk in the light as I AM in the light. Do not fear any longer what man can do to you.
Spend time with ME in the secret place and I will give you things to declare in the open! I will give you the Spirit of might that you might be BOLD in proclaiming the good news, and being My witnesses to the ends of the earth.
Lay aside all fear and trepidation. Take steps forward, one by one, and I will INCREASE in you, as you obey ME.
I did not come to lead the righteous to salvation. I came for the LOST sheep. So now I ask you to go for ME.
Will you go for US? Will you seek what to speak and speak it in obedience to My will. For if you do this, I will give you MORE.
But if you cower in fear like those in Gideons time, you will be disqualified for service!
Come to Me and buy gold refined in the fire. Come to ME and I will clothe you in new garments. I have new clothes for you to wear.
Each of you has new clothes befitting the son or daughter of the KING of Kings and the LORD OF Lords!
I would dress you in robes of PURPLE so that you might remember Whose you are! I would dress you in robes of RED so you would remember My blood shed for you.
But the robe that I will give you is a robe of sackcloth and poor man’s clothing, because I have called you to HUMILITY, not to pride or arrogance.
The New CLOTHES I will save for when you come home to ME… if you will but wear this robe of humility yet while on earth! This is the way to greatness. This is the way to My heart.
Renounce the world and all it offers, for you cannot serve two masters. You will love one and hate the other if you try.
You can only serve ONE MASTER, if you go the narrow path. So come to ME, and allow ME to choose the new garments for you.
I want you to wear fine white linen in the Spirit, that you don’t do things in your own efforts anymore, but are led ONLY by My Spirit, not by your flesh or striving to please Me.
I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. Cast off the old garments of the flesh and put on the new garments of the Spirit.
Be led of MY SPIRIT and you will be able to go through anything unscathed until it is time to go home.
I will do STARTLING MIRACLES if you will listen to ME, and follow MY LEAD IN THIS FINAL DANCE!
I AM calling you to the bridal chamber where I can speak sweet secrets in your ear. You and I will walk together in My gardens of reknown, and in the gardens of the earth.
There will be good times, hard times, and terrible times, but there will be GLORY enough for all who will wear this garment of humility as I did.
You are carrying around too much weight in the spirit. You are holding on to your own ideas of how I will do things. You are holding on to earthly possessions that mean nothing in the next world.
What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul. Do you want to pay the price the rich man paid in the parable of him and Lazarus? [Luke 16]
Some of you I will call to keep your homes.
Some of you I will call to leave your homes.
Some of you I will call to stay where you are.
Some are called to be like nomads, going from one place to another, gathering up sheaves.
So listen for the still small voice. Will you really lay it all down for ME? Will you truly love ME and obey ME ? It is a time for death to man’s opinions and ways of doing things.
Some of you still go to man before coming to ME for an answer on what to do. You are so habitually reliant on the ways of the world, and here I AM waiting for you to be silent and inquire of ME!
When will you learn that I love you, and to whom I love and cherish, I will reveal great and marvelous things you do not know.
To some I speak in parables and poems. To some I speak in dreams and visions. To some I speak plainly and face to face.
But I AM speaking if you will only listen and quiet yourself and WAIT on ME. Do not be impatient as the world is! You cannot hear if you are always doing the talking.
Listen and obey, and I will end the fray. Listen to My voice, and sing and rejoice, for I AM coming down to speak and offer My crown.
I AM coming to save the day, if only you will say what I want you to say!
Do not prophesy to curse another.
Do not take the sword to your brother.
I AM all power, and I AM all love. I AM coming down in the form of the Dove.
I will not falter, or get you off course. I AM Your Master, and yet I do not force.
To your life I will add luster. Glory will fall cluster after cluster!
Praise Me in all the far away places and I will pour down myriads of graces!
Worship together as you celebrate ME. I will make you what you long to be!
I will bring showers of latter day rain. To the harvesting there will be much gain!
I AM increasing and to the love there will be no ceasing. You will have plenty to gather and there’ll be no decreasing of wondrous power I’ve been seeking to releasing.
Provision will come in unusual ways.
Extend your hands to all during these days. I will release miracles in such unusual circumstances. I will add fruit to all your advances!
Shrink not from the plow for I AM coming NOW.
Sow and you’ll REAP, you’ll cry and you’ll weep. But to the tears, will I cough up the deep, that harvest will come and a new tune you’ll strum.
Life will no longer ever be humdrum! ”
