Remember not the Former Things!


As you started your life in Me, you were determined to live a life pleasing to Me.

Immediately you became a target for the enemy, a threat to the enemy’s camp.  You have taken some very large steps towards Me and I AM well pleased.  There are places I will take you and visitation will come in the season you are now entering.

The things you have asked of Me have already been set in motion.  Think on those deep inner needs no longer.  I AM bringing healing to the inner man.  Forget those things which are behind and press towards the mark for the prize of the High Call in Christ Jesus your Lord.

This will be a year of prosperity and growth.  You have stepped out into blind faith not having seen visions and dreams and have chosen to believe, determined in your heart to serve Me.

I have seen the tears stream down your face and still see the tears and even disappointment in regard to relationship and family.  Rejoice in Me and lay all heavy burdens aside.  Put all of the past behind you.

This is a brand new season.  I have many new experiences for you and greater revelation yet to come.  I have filled you with My Spirit.  You will begin to acknowledge all truth I show you.  No one will sway you from truth for you are full of integrity and faith and I like that about you.  You are one who makes up your mind and nothing can sway you from what revelation you have received and acted upon.

You are My child.  All the pitfalls and thorn bushes that pricked you on the path to Me were not pleasant but if you are not chastised, you are not My child.  As a gentle Shepherd, I correct and teach My children the pathway to holiness and that Holiness is in Me alone.  You wear a robe of righteousness because I gave it to you, free of charge, for no reason other than that I love you.  You invited Me to come into your heart and life.

Come as you are and lay all burdens of past sin down at My feet.  As you lay them down, I will pick them up.  I have borne these burdens already.  It is not My plan to allow My children to carry a burden.

I AM the burden-bearer.  All past sins have been thrown into the depths of the sea never to be remembered again.  You are clean through My Blood, not by works of righteousness which you have done but according to My mercy.  I saved you by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit which I shed on you abundantly through My death on the cross. Being justified by My grace, you are made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Rejoice, My child! You are certainly the apple of My eye.  You say, “No. It cannot be!”  It can be. I, the LORD, have spoken it.  You said, “No. I am not good enough.”  My word says, Yes, you were not good enough.

You were born into sin, but I bought and paid for your righteousness and your life is in Me and I in you.  I AM in you always even unto the ends of the earth.  You have been given a mandate (command) to come and follow Me, as you have said, “Yes Lord”,

I AM pouring out a greater desire for truth and understanding into the deeper truths.  This is the year I AM taking you out into the deep as you have cried out to know Me.  This is your year.  I AM removing all that can be removed, all that is not of Me.  Yield yourself to Me.  I have prepared great blessings for your future.

Come in close and seek Me with all of your heart, desiring to know who I AM and who you are in Me.

I AM about to reveal to you a depth of who I AM that you have never yet known.  This is the hour I have chosen to bring you out into the deep as your heart has cried out for freedom in Me.

Remember not the former things.  I have taken everything in your past and thrown it into the depths of the sea, not to be remembered again.  This is a new season, a season of joy, new strategies, open doors, a season of blessing and revelation as you seek Me with your whole heart.

A renewing of love is coming to your home, agape love, baptism of love.  This is not to say you do not have love, because you do. My love will amaze you.  It will turn you around for Me.

Now you will begin to know the fullness of who I AM in you and you will at times feel like you are in a honeymoon state of mind and spirit.

Rejoice!  Your calling and election have been made sure.  Come and allow Me to reveal the depth of the call and the blessings and favor to come.

Amen and Amen
