This morning there is such a weeping in my spirit because of what I see taking place in the earth and especially in the Body of Christ.
The hypocrisy, the decline in passion for the things of God, the misrepresentation of the holiness and righteousness of God.
I’m looking at the widespread corruption and how those who are lifting up a standard, those who are establishing the moral fiber of the church, are being attacked ridiculed and made to feel like an outcasts, because they won’t surrender to the pressures of those who carry influence in leadership, to become compromising like them.
The Body of Christ can not be divided on the Word on God. We can’t push aside what has been established in the word to keep us in the heart of God.
I’m seeing so much of the world becoming more and more acceptable in the Body of Christ and we are more concern with earthly numbers than we are about the people soul!
The word declares in Isaiah 3:14-15,
“Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: and I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.”
God promised us Shepherds and spiritual leaders who will bring us the knowledge of the Word and who would teach us so that we would have understanding concerning what God is saying.
Even though the majority of those who say they are called of God, are leading the people into idolatry. There is a remnant, a minority of leaders who refused to bend, who will not bow to the politics of ministry, and are chosen to bring forth a rod of correction in this hour!
This morning I woke up with a more determined mindset to live totally righteous and holy and to set a standard in the Kingdom that goes beyond man-made doctrine and denominational barriers, but to be a example of God’s Kingdom, by living according to the standards that YESHUA has set as He walked the earth!
This morning I reaffirmed my covenant with ELOHIM and recommitted by life totally to Him!
I reestablished my vow with Him of obedience and proclaimed I would humbly surrender my will and do all He requires of me and to go everywhere He sends me. The gift of faith stirred up stronger in me and I believe ELOHIM for all things.
This love I’m feeling for my Father this morning has swelled within me until I can’t contain it. Such a sense of peace has occurred as I’m writing this post and a blessed assurance that I am my beloved and my beloved is mine.
I understand completely this morning why I had to suffer, why I had to go through the persecution I had in my life. I realize the rejection the pain the wounds were necessary so that I could identify with Christ suffering.
Today my only regret is that I could had served God in this way from the beginning of my life. I’m at peace with my Savior. I’m at peace with those that have hurt me. I’m at peace with my family. I’m at peace with those that oppose me.
I’m truly at peace and I will continue to humbly serve the LORD and be submitted to my Father and raise up a standard in the Body of Christ of righteousness and holiness for I am called to the Kingdom for such a time as this!
Much love to you all today. Be blessed and enjoy your day! As for me I’m going into the secret place in a more deeper intimacy.
