“Do you really want to be guilty of speaking untruths, beloveds? There are so many lies being taught now, that it is hard for most people to discern what is really truth. This is making many skeptical of anything said. So that truth, lies in the streets, dead. Be sure that when you bring information to light, that which you are speaking is the ABSOLUTE TRUTH, and not rumors or lies.
It is rampant now, to go sleuthing for information on people in authority, and you are so willing to believe what you do not know for sure, without coming to ME, and asking ME, “Is that true Abba?”
I tell you that you are participating in SLANDER in many cases, as the world has gone mad with witchcraft and suspicion. Bitterness fills many hearts and makes people suspect anyone and everyone of some malevolent deed.
Keep YOUR MINDS STAYED ON ME. I know why you are trying to play detective, but you can get any information you need from ME. I know everything going on, and you won’t have to rely on movies, and news, and articles.
If you come to Me, I can tell you what I WANT YOU TO KNOW, even before things happen. I AM the ALL–KNOWING ONE. I AM the ALMIGHTY.
So where is your proof for those things you believe? Do you know what is in the heart of a man? Have you walked in his or her shoes? Do you see their weeping and crying over things they’ve done and been through?
I tell you, that I see all. I see those whose hearts are black and wicked, and I see those with good intentions, but poor actions. I see those with pure hearts, and those with immature hearts. I ALONE, KNOW THE CONDITION of each heart! So before you go slandering and gossiping about other of My children, I ask YOU to come to ME. And when you share that information – if I let you, then you are obligated to PRAY for that situation or other person if I so lead.
I will NOT have you pray for the wicked who will NOT turn. And I alone know who will or won’t turn to ME. I don’t want you to waste time on the truly malevolent, but to aim your prayers like arrows for those things I PUT ON YOUR HEART, and those persons I PUT ON YOUR HEART. I give to each person different ones to pray for. Just focus on YOUR part beloveds. Stay in the realm I’ve ordained you for.
So, do not become the sleuth, except for those things I WANT YOU TO! Do not become the gossip-monger or slanderer. Do not give in to watching all that which is on TV and radio and is nothing but gossip and slander, from angry and unimaginative busy-bodies.
There are enough people out there, whom to WITNESS. I want you to become more concerned with SOULS. I want you to GO outside the four walls and reach out to those who are broken and LOST. Set your sights on HARVEST! ASK ME, and I will give you the nations, I said.
ASK ME, and I will give you your neighborhoods, your work places, your schools, and families. Spend yourselves better in focusing your attentions on ME, and asking ME, to WHOM can I witness today? WHOSE life can I CHANGE today, by showing Your love?
Beloveds, I have been so generous with you. I have forgiven you SO much. You know there are some things you have had trouble giving up – little foxes that spoil the vine. So please think first, to ask ME about anyone else in your path, before saying anything.
Be quick to listen, and slow to speak.
There are some who still have loose tongues of PREJUDICE towards those of other races and ethnicities. You have done it so long, you don’t even hear yourself, as I HEAR YOU. Your hearts are darkened with hatred and judgments, and criticism from personal experiences, and from things taught to you as children, that were judgmental and untrue.
If you don’t lay down the AXE and cleanse your heart of these murderous and hateful attitudes, you will also be judged unmercifully! For to those who show no mercy, no mercy will be given.
Ask ME, if that attitude or opinion you feel so strong about, is RIGHT!
For I will NOT hold you guiltless of murder, when you are hating your brothers and sisters. LOVE is KIND. My love never fails towards you, so what gives you the right to judge any other man or woman, boy or girl? Stop despising the rebellious, and pray AS I SHOW YOU. Pray in the Spirit. Pray YOU may be kept from the wrath to come. Pray for Me to cleanse you from all unrighteousness, so that as My glory comes you will still be able to stand.”
“Beloved, we are [even here and] now God’s children; it is not yet disclosed (made clear) what we shall be [hereafter], but we know that when He comes and is manifested, we shall [as God’s children] resemble and be like Him, for we shall see Him just as He [really] is. 3 And everyone who has this hope [resting] on Him cleanses (purifies) himself just as He is pure (chaste, undefiled, guiltless)” 1 John 3:2-3 AMP.
“For this is the message (the announcement) which you have heard from the first, that we should love one another, 12 [And] not be like Cain who [took his nature and got his motivation] from the evil one and slew his brother. And why did he slay him? Because his deeds (activities, works) were wicked and malicious and his brother’s were righteous (virtuous)” 1 John 3:11-12 AMP.
“We know that we have passed over out of death into Life by the fact that we love the brethren (our fellow Christians). He who does not love abides (remains, is held and kept continually) in [spiritual] death. 15 Anyone who hates (abominates, detests) his brother [in Christ] is [at heart] a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding ( persevering) within him. 16 By this we come to know (progressively to recognize, to perceive, to understand) the [essential] love: that He laid down His [own] life for us; and we ought to lay [our] lives down for [those who are our] brothers [in Him].
17 But if anyone has this world’s goods (resources for sustaining life) and sees his brother and fellow believer in need, yet closes his heart of compassion against him, how can the love of God live and remain in him? 18 Little children, let us not love [merely] in theory or in speech but in deed and in truth (in practice and in sincerity).
19 By this we shall come to know (perceive, recognize, and understand) that we are of the Truth, and can reassure (quiet, conciliate, and pacify) our hearts in His presence,
20 Whenever our hearts in [tormenting] self-accusation make us feel guilty and condemn us. [For we are in God’s hands.] For He is above and greater than our consciences (our hearts), and He knows (perceives and understands) everything [nothing is hidden from Him]. 21 And, beloved, if our consciences (our hearts) do not accuse us [if they do not make us feel guilty and condemn us], we have confidence (complete assurance and boldness) before God, 22 And we receive from Him whatever we ask, because we [watchfully] obey His orders [observe His suggestions and injunctions, follow His plan for us] and [habitually] practice what is pleasing to Him” 1 John 3:14-22 AMP.
God bless you,
