“The eyes of My people are blind and their ears are deaf to My voice, because their hearts are engulfed in unbelief.
Unbelief and deaf and dumb spirits travel together. Where you find one, you will find the other.
You can speak truth to them, but they don’t hear it, because they are being, if you could see them, stymied by the hands of deaf and dumb spirits, sticking their fingers in their ears, interfering with what their mind hear even.
And where there are deaf and dumb spirits, there has often been idolatry in the generations.”
“5 For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, And their eyes they have closed, Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should* heal them.’*” Matthew 13:15 NKJV.
“They do not believe I can do what I’ve done before even. They don’t believe I will come through for them, because they have had nothing but that experience from their human encounters mostly.
So they expect to have to do things themselves, because they’ve never been able to rely on someone.
So self preservation comes, and self dependence, a form of pride and they go on thinking like an orphan that they have to do everything themselves.
Unbelief is so strong, that it takes a long time to break it down so that they can TRUST again. Much abuse is also Related to all this.
Idolatrous people neglect and abuse their children very often. You have to please a harsh taskmaster with worshipping of demons, so you think you have to be perfect to please that “god” or he’ll be mad at you.
In order to rout this perversion, it takes love in great measure to destroy the roots of unbelief and doubt, and all that goes with that.
Old wounds must be healed and the lies uncovered that are the basis of the roots of this behavior.
Once the light of GOD shines into that room of their “temple/ house” then the lies are destroyed, but it still takes love to reinforce the truth so they can trust more fully in ME.
When they encounter in My church the perfectionism they are raised with, it is very familiar, but it does NOT bring MY LIFE to them.
It does the opposite of getting them to rely on trying to please ME, versus trusting in what I DID for them.
LET ME be the Healer that I AM. LET ME show you how to bring life in to the darkness of their soul.
TRUST that I can show you the keys to get the lies shut down. Once you can get them to renounce the lies, then they can embrace the TRUTH much more whole heartedly, and not timidly and wishy-washy.
FIGHT on your knees for your loved ones beloveds, for I AM AT HAND, and I WILL BRING the healing needed for you and for all you love.
I WANT you to be conduits of My love to heal the brokenness of generations.
Don’t be AFRAID of those who have been so hurt they are mad, or so bound by demons that they act bizarre like the Gadarene maniac.
ONE HUG with genuine love that comes from ME is more than all the psychiatry and drugs can do.
You don’t have to be a star to do this. You just have to obey ME when I say to do it. I KNOW who will receive and who will not, who will repent, and who will not, who is ready, and who is not.
Trust Me to guide you in the encounters of your day. For I AM coming into your work places, your homes, your streets, your churches, no matter what they believe, they will see a demonstration of My power and love like the world has not seen.
KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU and KNOW that I AM LOVE. LOVE is the greatest weapon you have. Your judging does nothing to turn around the wicked.
Your anger at what they do and say will not bring healing to them. My understanding and love given to them will. There are many weapons I’ve given you, but the greatest of these is LOVE.
So focus on learning to LOVE. Offset all the selfish self centeredness of the WORLD by being different.
Cast off “me, myself and I”, and put on MY LOVE, MY PATIENCE, MY JOY, MY COMPASSION.
It only takes getting into MY PRESENCE. Spending time with each other is something friends do.
If you are My FRIEND, will I not at least do what a friend does to listen to you?
Am I not “better than a friend”? Come to ME I said, all who are heavy laden, and I WILL give you REST.”
Thanks so much for all of you who already support me and this ministry with your prayers or your finances. May the LORD richly bless you all !
If you can give in this season, it would be greatly appreciated!
