Long ago, when I was first learning about intercession, one of my best friends, who is now in a nursing home, had a phrase that was the beginning of a long journey of learning how to conquer the battleground of the mind in intercession and walking in the spirit.
I made a plaque for her to have by her bedside with what I call her famous quote:
I learned as I battled rejection. that it was a part of self-focus and need for man’s approval.
We must gain control of ‘self’ before we begin to extend The Kingdom of God through our own life
among The Nations, and God wants to give us responsibility for the earth.
I heard The LORD say, “In this hour, I AM challenging My Chosen Ones who are My Remnant Warriors to subdue, multiply and be fruitful.
It is time to bear fruit that remains, but in order to do this, you must first, submit to My Lead, have My Mind, and let go of the desire to control.
Beloved, many people are in institutions because they lack self-control.
Self indulgence and selfish actions result in guilt, sorrow and remorse.
I AM reaching out to those who have been taken captive by their own self indulgence to repent, and be healed, delivered and saved,” says The LORD.
“For the moment, all discipline is painful rather than pleasant, but it later produces peace, courage, self-restraint, and perseverance.
I, The LORD, AM releasing Truth to bring Healing and Deliverance to the many who are experiencing emotional disorders, as well as physical issues due to living a life of self indulgence.
I say to you, “Come unto me!” says The LORD, “For I AM your Deliverer.
Many of you have given in to your appetite which led to addiction. Your impulsive personality began as a child who had very little discipline, but I say, come as you are and be set free — for I AM your loving heavenly Father.
Stumbling blocks will always come to threaten your freedom,” says The Father.
“The spirit of lawlessness all over the world in this hour has caused many people’s love to grow cold. This is happening to those who once loved and trusted God with committed hearts, as well as those who loved in their own natural way.
So, I AM sending a warning to guard your hearts against unforgiveness for it is the open door to destroy relationships and families in this day of bitterness and hardness of hearts.
My word warns that a root of bitterness can defile many (Hebrews 12:15). Bitterness is truly unfulfilled revenge, and I remind you today that vengeance is mine,” saith The LORD.
“Even if your heart has opened the door to jealousy that is causing you to be filled with revenge, forgiveness is the answer to be healed from all hurt.
Jealousy is as cruel as the grave — and it is spreading like wildfire in the world today!”
“And many lying prophets will arise, deceiving multitudes and leading them away from the path of truth. There will be such an increase of the sin of lawlessness that those whose hearts once burned with passion for God and others will grow cold.” Matthew 24:8-12 TPT
“Always remember, bitterness is a real sign of a heart that has grown cold and the road to freedom is through forgiveness and repentance.
“At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. 13But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.” Matthew 24: 10-12 NASB
“If someone says, “I love God,” and yet he hates his brother or sister, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother and sister whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God must also love his brother and sister.” 1 John 4:20-21 NASB
Beloved, The Church today is in a life or death struggle with the forces of darkness and it is urgent to take back the ground that has been given to the enemy through mind control, witchcraft, and selfish desires that flow from hard hearts.
You have the upper hand, for I have given you the keys to life and the power over the enemy, but you must take a firm stand and rise to the challenge with a humble heart.
Humble yourselves under the mighty Hand of your God, and arise with The Sword of The LORD to take down the prideful move to destroy The Nations.
The weapons of your warfare are not carnal, but they are mighty. So rise to the challenge and fight the fight with unwavering faith that never fails.
Change your words of defeat to words of victory because watch over your words to perform them,” says The LORD.
“This is the hour to Contend with the Contention. It is the NOW time to Establish the Establishment as I AM raising up the winning team who have Established Hearts, to step up to the plate.
Yes,” says The LORD of all the world, “The clock is ticking and when I show NOW, I mean NOW.
Know that you have the orders from your heavenly headquarters to step up to the plate and hit a Home Run — because the bases are loaded and the game is almost over.
I tell you — the enemy has struck out — and I AM ready to announce to the whole world that the World Series of games is coming to an end, and America shall win and not lose, as all The Nations of the world are watching these World Series Games come to an end,” says The LORD God.
