“You shall walk after the Lord your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice; you shall serve Him and hold fast to Him” Deuteronomy 13:4, NKJV (emphasis added).
“I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd” John 10:14-16, NKJV (emphasis added).
My child, in the midst of the busyness of each day, I call out to My children with words of love, warning, and guidance. But the noise of their environment usually blocks out My call. My people have not been trained to hear My voice. In fact, they are not even aware that I want to talk to them. Religion has made Me a distant figure who lives afar off and seems to be content to allow conflicting interpretations of My word to blossom among the churches.
This is not the case; in truth, I seek a personal and intimate relationship with all who come to Me and call Me Savior. I AM NOT a vending machine where you plunk in a prayer and out comes an answer. I desire your whole heart to be given to Me even as I gave My all for you.
I AM a personal Savior. I know the deepest desires of every heart. I know the personal torments and deep fears that the enemy uses against you. I see how he attacks at your weakest point. Had you heeded My voice, you would have known what to do ahead of the attack and would have been alerted to your vulnerabilities. Not all attacks can be averted. But the closer you are to Me, the impact of the attack is lessened and the fear nullified.
I will not stop calling out to those who have ears to hear My voice. But I will come quickly to grab the attention of every man, woman, and child on this earth. The heavens, themselves, will declare My Righteousness among the nations. The shaking is about to begin. Those who would not wake up by a gentle call will hear the sound of My voice in the shaking.
I love My people too much to be content with half-hearted devotion. You fight and devour one another over small things while the enemy pokes you with his sticks of pride, envy, strife, and unbelief.
As the new year dawns on My calendar, you will see these shakings come affecting one area of the world after another. As the panorama of the moving of My hand unfolds, the awakened ones will know just what to do because they listened to My gentle call and guiding voice. These will be the ones who will bring My peace into every situation. These will be the ones who will say, “Look to the Lord. He is waiting for you to turn to Him with all your hearts. He will not forsake you if you call on His name.” Many signs and wonders will confirm their words as My way of approving of their message. It is My true message and I will put My words into the mouths of My sent ones.
WAKE UP! The time is late. Do not think you can hide from what I am doing. It may seem that the evil one has the upper hand, but remember he is only reacting to what I AM doing. He is afraid of what I am releasing to My people in this hour. My prepared ones have been awake for many years staying the course no matter what they saw with their natural eyes. Now the day is fast approaching that I will satisfy their hunger and thirst for Righteousness to be restored and My name exalted among the peoples of the earth.
Turn your ears to Me and listen for My voice to guide your every step throughout this new year — the year of great adventure, the year of great shakings, the year of the great confrontations — as the clash of Light and darkness takes center stage. It is not the end, but only the beginning of harvest season.
Receive My grace and extended mercies as you sit at My feet while I teach you My ways. Shalom.
