Keeping on Track and Alignment
As I’m listening this early morning hour the Spirit of The Lord is dealing heavily with me. There is a diabolical plot to destroy the understanding of the people to discern right from wrong and evil from good and the truth from a lie.
The enemy is masquerading himself so cleverly now in the Body of Christ and many won’t recognize his deception until they are caught up in his wicked schemes. I was talking to a Woman of God yesterday and I told her how I was observing the enemy trying to silence God’s mouthpiece in this hour.
I told her see how the enemy is attacking their ability to speak vocal. Throat cancer, fatigue in their voices, hoarseness, sore throats are coming upon the voices that have been ordained to speak. If it’s not physical then their character is being attack to stop their influence in the earth.
The Spirit of The Lord said the enemy is trying to cause a prophetic death in the land. He is trying to kill the Prophets and the ability to hear the prophetic declarations of The Lord concerning the events that are to happen in these last days. It is so serious right now. The Apostolic and Prophetic Voices will be under extreme attack in this hour and the attacks will be fierce but unproductive because the fruit of these vessels with overshadow the plot of the enemy. Watch out for those that are on a mission to attack God’s proven in the fire vessels.
The Lord said fill your mouth with laughter and rejoice at the persecution for it’s a demonic set up to get you to come down off your watch and to delay your advancement in the Kingdom of God. These last days you will be offer up as a sacrifice to attempt to get you out the way. Stand your ground and look not to the right nor left but keep your eyes focus on Jesus.
One thing I watched my leader do is keep moving even in the midst of his enemy. I watched him stand and preach the word in the midst of those that hated him saw the power of God fall and consumed those that were against him and have them turn and declare that surely The Lord is with him.
He said to me, usually, never address what is not a part of your Kingdom assignment. The anointing on your life will always silence your adversaries. Many of us have learned this lesson, that this journey is not about us, it’s not about whether people will like us or not, but it’s about our assignment to souls and our mandate and mission in the Kingdom of God.
I want to encouraged all of you who are on the battlefield for Kingdom reasons, to keep obeying God, remain humble before The Lord, fight only when God says to fight, pray often, be watchful and remain steadfast and unmovable in the work of The Lord.
God watches over His servants and He will bring them forth to Victory in every battle. Stay strong soldiers. The word said you will be hated for His name sake, but remember, if God be for you who can be against you! Live out Luke 10:19 and keep standing strong there are souls waiting on you don’t let God down by being distracted by things that are non factors in your destiny!
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you,” Like 10:19.
When Things Get Quiet
There are times when I need to speak to you in the quiet my child. In these times I will draw you unto myself and the noise around you will stop.
In moments such as these you can feel uncertain about yourself. Doors that should have opened stay closed. Opportunities that should be yours, are delayed. When you see these things happen, do not be discouraged my child. Rather realize that I am calling you to myself.
For I have many things that I want to show you. I have many things that I want to tell you about the road that you are walking. However, if you are always so busy walking, then how can I tell you which step to take? And so, I will arrange circumstances and draw you into a time of silence. A time when it feels like nothing is moving. It is then that I will show you the next step. So do not fight my hand my child, rather embrace it.
Come to me in the quiet and see that I have set this time aside for you and I to talk. See that I am drawing you unto myself so that I can express my heart to you. For you have sought me for answers. You have sought me for direction. It is in the quiet that you will receive that direction. So come to me today and see the wonderful things that I have in store for you my child.
Pulling Down or Sowing Into?
Sometimes instead of always pulling on a leader, you need to sow into them.
How about you pray? How about you give a word? How about you sow a seed? Sometimes leaders are at a place of needing to be refueled or replenished.
There are time they need restoration of their strength because they have poured out over and over and those around them don’t feel the burden of the load they are carrying. We don’t need to burn the men and women out, but we need to uplift them in prayer.
Sometimes you need to just call them and tell them you love them. Leaders are under a lot of attacks in this hour especially in their bodies and homes and finances. Pray for them often and if you can encourage them and then just sometimes call them and ask them can you do anything for them.
A kind and thoughtful word goes a long way when you have been under attack and a burden of winning souls and making sure things are being ran smoothly! Be blessed much love to you all.
It is not all in the eye
People tend to approach something because of the visual attraction of it. In advertisements, they use visual aides to entice and entrap you into buying their product.
Many times people will try it if it’s only once because of the appeal of it. Often times, after testing what was advertised they find that the quality (the degree of excellence of something) was inferior to what they have advertised. The advertiser will guaranteed their product is the best because they believe through their advertisement the visual effect will cause the person to believe it’s good because the mind has been formed to believe this is something excellent.
They know that the strength of the mind through imagination can create the lie they are selling and cause it to believe what it has envision. With that being said be careful of what you see when you meet someone in a relationship. Sometimes our mind plays tricks on us and our visual sense creates an image of a person that doesn’t really exist. Their advertisement many times causes us to accept the package because of what it looks like and we begin to form in our minds this ideal person who we want to spend the rest of our lives with.
We start planning our lives together with a faulty product because we have allowed our visual senses to create this ideal image because this is what they have shown us. The ad always displays the good parts of what they want you to buy it’s not until you have gotten the product and you start seeing defects that you hear about the effects it may have on your life or the flaws it may have.
Which brings me to this. Before you jump into a relationship, let The Lord deal with you and show you the true value worth and function of the individual you are dealing with. Allow The Lord to guide you concerning the person.
One thing I know the Holy Ghost searches all things including the heart of people. Let Him be your guide and lead you. He will never steer you wrong.
Which brings me to another point. Stop allowing flesh to pick your spouse. Marriage is more than a shape and some muscles. The physical body may be in excellent shape but their spiritual man may be out of shape ugly and distorted.
If you seek God He will show you the spirit of the person but most of the time we already so caught up on the outer man until we block out the voice of the inner man that is saying, RUN, FOREST, RUN!
