”Sinister schemes will not keep Me away from you beloveds. No matter what comes against you I AM WITH YOU to keep you and to get you through the storms.
Thank ME in all that goes on, for it will greatly dissipate attacks from the enemy when you rejoice instead of being grumpy and complaining. Remember Israel in the desert, and learn to rejoice even in what seems to be circumstances from hell.
Know that I am with you. Nothing can separate you from My love. As the world sees that you have a different attitude, they will take notice.”
“But the Lord is with me as a mighty and terrible one; therefore my persecutors will stumble, and they will not overcome [me]. They will be utterly put to shame, for they will not deal wisely or prosper [in their schemes]; their eternal dishonor will never be forgotten. But, O Lord of hosts, You Who try the righteous, Who see the heart and the mind, let me see Your vengeance on them, for to You have I revealed and committed my cause. Sing to the Lord! Praise the Lord! For He has delivered the life of the poor and needy from the hands of evildoers,” Jeremiah 20:11-13 AMP.
“Have confidence in My love for you, and MY INTENTIONS TOWARD YOU. My grace towards you is eternal to all who have a humble heart that WANTS to do what is right. I AM with you, no matter how many times you have failed at something.
I AM WITH YOU because I AM EMMANUEL, God with you. God inside of you.
Do you not realize yet, that you are the temple of the Holy Spirit?
For I AM always with you, and angelic hosts are at your side, day and night. I AM TERRIBLE to the wicked, and TENDERNESS to the beloveds of My heart.”
“WHY DO You stand afar off, O Lord? Why do You hide Yourself, [veiling Your eyes] in times of trouble (distress and desperation)? The wicked in pride and arrogance hotly pursue and persecute the poor; let them be taken in the schemes which they have devised. For the wicked man boasts (sings the praises) of his own heart’s desire, and the one greedy for gain curses and spurns, yes, renounces and despises the Lord.
The wicked one in the pride of his countenance will not seek, inquire for, and yearn for God; all his thoughts are that there is no God [so He never punishes]. His ways are grievous [or persist] at all times; Your judgments [Lord] are far above and on high out of his sight [so he never thinks about them]; as for all his foes, he sniffs and sneers at them. He thinks in his heart, I shall not be moved; for throughout all generations I shall not come to want or be in adversity.
His mouth is full of cursing, deceit, oppression (fraud); under his tongue are trouble and sin (mischief and iniquity). He sits in ambush in the villages; in hiding places he slays the innocent; he watches stealthily for the poor (the helpless and unfortunate). He lurks in secret places like a lion in his thicket; he lies in wait that he may seize the poor (the helpless and the unfortunate); he seizes the poor when he draws him into his net. [The prey] is crushed, sinks down; and the helpless falls by his mighty [claws]. [The foe] thinks in his heart, God has quite forgotten; He has hidden His face; He will never see [my deed]. Arise, O Lord! O God, lift up Your hand; forget not the humble [patient and crushed],” Psalm 10:1-12 AMP.
“There are many who have given in to humanism and compromise that have no idea what they are aligning themselves with. Those who are your own acquaintances, friends and family, will turn you over to the enemy in times of desperation.
You are going to need MY help in discerning and in gaining GRACE to have strength, and wisdom to do what is right for yourself and those you love. So learn NOW beloveds to lean on ME. ASK ME what is next, what to do, what to say, what is going on. I WILL help you. I will be all you need in the days ahead.
You know that nothing can separate you from My love. NOTHING can separate you from ME. NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING. Some of you don’t believe it.
You think if you make one mistake, you are done for. But that IS NOT MY HEART. I AM NOT a perfectionist ! I AM not impatient or intolerant. And if you will ask ME to keep your heart like a child’s, I will do that by My grace and power, so that you will stay dependent on ME for all the wisdom and discernment & direction you need.
This is a season of repentance and re-evaluation, and introspection. Rely on ME to show you the way to overcoming all that you see in your flesh. THANK ME for all I am doing to rip the flesh out of you ! Thank ME, and ask for more of the FIRE that will burn off all that cannot withstand the test.”
“Is not My word like fire [ that consumes all that cannot endure the test ]? says the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks in pieces the rock [of most stubborn resistance]?” Jeremiah 23:29 AMP.
“A great testing is coming of all that I have put inside of you. It will take all the GRACE you can get to get through the times ahead. So spend time with ME instead of TV. Spend time in the WORD if you want discernment.
I AM your RESOURCE for all that you need. LAY DOWN your agendas, and pick up Mine. Ask and you shall receive. PRAY for your families and for those who are still in the dark about what is on the horizon, who don’t realize the hour they are in.
PRAY for repentance in leaders of this nation, and within the church. Pray for all that is hidden to be revealed, for I AM FAITHFUL to answer your prayers.”
“Destroy [their schemes ], O Lord, confuse their tongues, for I have seen violence and strife in the city. Day and night they go about on its walls; iniquity and mischief are in its midst. Violence and ruin are within it; fraud and guile do not depart from its streets and marketplaces,” Psalm 55:9-11 AMP.
“They lay crafty schemes against Your people and consult together against Your hidden and precious ones. They have said, Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be in remembrance no more. For they have consulted together with one accord and one heart; against You they make a covenant,” Psalm 83:3-5 AMP.
“Hear, O earth: behold, I am bringing evil upon this people, the fruit of their thoughts (their schemes and devices) because they have not listened and obeyed My words, and as for My law, they have rejected it,” Jeremiah 6:19 AMP.
“But I was like a tame lamb that is brought to the slaughter; I did not know that they had devised inventions and schemes against me, saying, Let us destroy the tree with its fruit; let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered. But, O Lord of hosts, Who judges rightly and justly, Who tests the heart and the mind, let me see Your vengeance on them, for to You I have revealed and committed my cause [rolling it upon You],” Jeremiah 11:19-20 AMP.
“Then [my enemies] said, Come and let us devise schemes against Jeremiah; for the law [of Moses] shall not perish from the priest [as this false prophet Jeremiah predicts], nor will counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, let us smite him with the tongue [making a charge against him to the king], and let us not pay any attention to his words. Give heed to me, Lord; listen to [what] my adversaries [are plotting to do to me – and intercede]. Shall evil be recompensed for good? Yet they have dug a pit for my life. [Earnestly] remember that I stood before You to speak good for them, to turn away Your anger from them,” Jeremiah 18:18-20 AMP.
