“I AM the ROCK on which you are to stand!
I AM El Gibor, the Mighty One of Israel! There is nothing I AM unable to do. There is nothing I cannot take care of in your life!
I want you to learn beloveds to live without all the luxuries, without all the “fluff” you have lived with before this time. For times are coming which try men’s souls and in fact are already here.
YOU MUST LEARN TO LIVE WITH LESS. You must learn to live as strangers in a dry and barren land. You must l earn to travel LIGHT… to be ready at a moment’s notice to go here or to go there.
You must learn obedience to the still small voice in this way, that I can keep you in the days to come. What would you take if you knew a nuclear bomb were going off less than 50 miles from you in the next few days?
Do you have confidence in My ability to protect you and GUIDE you?
Will you allow ME to guide you?
Will you follow My instructions?
Are you that FLEXIBLE?
Because, you need to be beloveds. The ONLY safe place is IN ME. In the shadow of MY wings will I keep you if you will surrender to My will.
Treasure that your name is written in The Lamb’s Book of Life for this is all that matters in this world. All your things will not save you in the time of trouble. ONLY what I lead you to do and where I lead you to go will save you.
Don’t be like the ostrich in the desert. Don’t hide your head in the sand refusing to listen to My prophets!
When I tell you to STAY, then you stay. When I tell you to STAND, then STAND! When I tell you to fight, then fight with the Word and in worship!
Don’t back down unless I SAY back down!
Don’t be afraid of the faces of men. You can face anyone with confidence if you will listen to MY VOICE above all else.
Adhere to me like barnacles to whales! Adhere My WORD to your heart so that you KNOW what it says! FILL your mind and soul with My WORD.
The day is coming when it will be taken from you. HIDE IT IN YOUR HEARTS. Proclaim it to the heavens and bring down demonic strongholds! Take an offensive stand!
Relegate the enemy to a posture of defense as there is no defense against forgiveness and humility. Forgive one another AS I HAVE FORGIVEN YOU!
Do I not forgive you ALL your trespasses?
Then will you forgive men all their trespasses as I have forgiven you?
DO THIS and you will have learned a great lesson and you will find the enemy leaving you alone with accusations. Walk in HUMILITY not considering yourself better than others and you will have peace with men.
I want you to be like granite, like an impermeable ROCK that cannot be moved away from obedience to ME. I want you to stand when all else and everyone else is telling you something different, yet you follow ME, despite all their advice.
Do not give in to distractions of others, or their assumptions about you. Do not give in to their judgments of your situation. You have to answer to ME alone, not to them.
It is I you will stand before in the end, not man. It is I you will have to give an account to for every WORD that proceeds from your mouth.
I WILL HUMILIATE ANYONE WHO COMES AGAINST A TRUE BROTHER.
Note… I mean a believer, not a goat, not a wolf, but another sheep, another true follower of Me. You are not to honor wolves. You are not to honor the devil.
You are to honor ME, My Father, and the Most Holy Spirit. You are to honor men in RESPECTING THEM and the boundaries they put up. Each man is responsible for his own behavior.
YOU CANNOT CHANGE ANOTHER. You can only SOW SEEDS. If you say something to someone and they don’t respond.
It isn’t your responsibility if they don’t accept My love which includes My correction. No word that you say will make a difference unless it is spoken by direction of My SPIRIT!
If you do it just to say something, you have become religious! Your walk is directed by ME when I AM doing the leading and you are following.
But if you do THINGS that seem good, out of obligation or just to do something, or to prove something, then it is futility, not obedience. A lot of things seem good to a man, yet are from his own heart.
Come to ME and spend time with me in the secret place, then you will know what to do. I don’t need you to save the world, I can do that on My own if I need to.
I want you to spend time with ME and receive My LOVE so that you will be girded with strength and come to attain the fullness of ME.
THAT is the MOST important thing for you. For then, all that you do will be done out of relationship with Me, and understanding who you are in ME.
Not only will you have confidence, but you will have fullness of ANOINTING that breaks the yoke of bondage!
But so long as you don’t know the fullness of My Love, you will be LIMITED !”
“That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; [That you may really come ] to know [ practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [ may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!
Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [ action of His ] power that is at work within us, is able to [ carry out His purpose and ] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]– to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it),” Ephesians 3:18-21 AMP.
“The one who knows MY love, My humility and forgiveness is one who can walk in apostolic power and authority, and in whom I can trust not to take the glory for themselves.
Know that I have A LOT more for you in the days ahead and only if you will lay down all the doing for just being with ME, and taking My yoke upon you for I AM HUMBLE of heart and I will give you power, strength and love to endure the days ahead.
I will give you a NEW HEART. COME, and lay down at MY feet, and lay down ALL YOUR BURDENS.
The only real way to strength is to lay down YOUR OWN STRENGTH, and to depend on ME for MINE!”
Granite From Wikipedia, the Free Encyclopedia
“Granite (IPA: /gran t/) is a common and widely occurring type of intrusive, felsic, igneous rock. …Granite is nearly always massive, hard and tough, and it is for this reason it has gained widespread use as a construction stone. The word granite comes from the Latin granum, a grain, in reference to the coarse-grained structure of such a crystalline rock.”
