Strange But True


“Is it not strange when a people called by My name uses My name to curse another who is My child?

Is it not strange that both blessing and cursing come from the same lips?

I AM the fountain of LIFE and I have made you to be a fountain of life to the world.  But how can you do that if you are no different than the world in your attitude?

Surely goodness and mercy I said would follow you the rest of your days.  But if you want blessing, then you must BLESS.  If you want kindness, then you must be kind. If you WANT MERCY, then GIVE MERCY!

It is TRUE that I have an exchange program.  Here it is:”

“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning.
Strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the foreigner shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.  But you shall be named the priests of the LORD, they shall call you the servants of our God.  You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory you shall boast.  Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion.  Therefore in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be theirs.
“For I, the LORD, love justice; I hate robbery for burnt offering; I will direct their work in truth, and will make with them an everlasting covenant.  Their descendants shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people.  All who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the posterity whom the LORD has blessed.”
I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.  For as the earth brings forth its bud, as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.”
  Isaiah 61 NKJV.

“Now My beloveds, how much of this do you believe?

Do you believe that I can transform ANYONE?

Do you believe that I give beauty for ashes?

Then why do you pigeon-hole those who have been in perversion and witchcraft, or tormented mentally, as if I am not big enough to change them?

YOUR FAITH needs to GROW My beloveds!  THERE is NOTHING I cannot do.  It has not been done, for the years the worms have eaten up My truth. The manifestation of truth comes when people LIVE MY TRUTH!

Pure water does not come out of a polluted well.  As people overcome all the enemy has come against them with through My GRACE and MERCY and allowing ME to purge and cleanse them MORE and MORE is poured out grace to grace.

The more My Word becomes a part of you, the more you will walk in glory!  Do you believe this?  If not, read this for I want you to be strengthened in your faith and in your understanding”.

“And to spread out sackcloth and ashes? Would you call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?  “Is this not the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke?
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; when you see the naked, that you cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh?
Then your light shall break forth like the morning, your healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.  Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I AM.’
If you take away the yoke from your midst, the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness,  If you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness shall be as the noonday.
The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.  Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.
“If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on My holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy day of the LORD honorable, and shall honor Him, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, Nor speaking your own words, then you shall delight yourself in the LORD; and I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth, and feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father.  The mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
  Isaiah 58:5-14 NKJV

“Notice My beloveds that there are a lot of IF’s and THENS.

Some promises are conditional. I F you will obey My Word, then you will be blessed beyond your imagination.  The problem is that most are satisfied with so little of ME.

They get satisfied, because they have enough to make them comfortable without having to alter their lifestyle too much.  But if you will go all the way to overcome what has beset you in your life, by asking for My overcoming GRACE and dwelling IN ME, then YOU WILL BE ALL THESE THINGS to those around you.

ASK and you shall receive.  For I AM longing to give you all these things if you but humble yourself.  Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord and HE will lift you up, says My Word.

NOTHING is impossible for ME, for I AM the Great I AM.  I AM ELOHIM, the CREATOR of heaven and earth.  With ME, all things are possible My love.  Do not be content with a little.  The words of David ring true for your day as well as his!”

“As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness,”  Psalm 17:15 NKJV.

“I have given you authority to trample on serpents and scorpions. BE NOT AFRAID.  You are the head and not the tail.  You are the apple of My eye.  You are My beloveds and there is nothing I won’t do for someone who radically loves ME.

ALL things are in My hands.  All time is in My hands.  Come and take a swim with ME in the river of LIFE.  You will see and feel such wonders!

Come and commune with ME, for I AM longing to hold you, and to wipe away all your tears.  I AM the God of all comfort.  I know the pains, and sorrows.  I know all the things that have pierced your heart.

I know all the injustices and mis-understandings.  Come and worship ME, and I will wipe away all the yokes of pain and suffering.

I love you SO much and nothing you do surprises ME, My beloveds.  I AM not put off by anything you have done.

If you feel that way, then you have given in to a lie.  For I AM YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.  And I AM the lifter of your head.  Anything you have done is wiped away by confession and I forgive all who turn to ME for forgiveness and mercy.  Come and let ME love you.  Do not put Me aside.  LISTEN for the still small voice.  I AM always wanting to talk with you.”

Strange But True — 1 Comment

  1. Every question that is asked to me I answer. For we shall not be guilty of anything, and even when it is an unanswered question.
    Concerning me and my family: Our life is in real danger. In our fridge there are water bottles that were opened by strangers, and to a special fruit juice bottle were added some poisoned liquids that caused heavy stomach aches. The half empty bottle was filled and the covering was lose. I asked the LORD and He promised that no weapon formed against us shall succeed. He told me through Jeremiah that I shall no more pray for those who tortured and tormented us so long. So this is the answer why I published again their evil works. I did never curse them. Bible tells in various places how enemies of truth plan evil things on their beds and they work it out for destruction. All warnings to them from GOD to stop gang stalking and terror by day and night – they ignored. A murderous spirit wants to rule in this world, and Christians are in danger. Even Daniel tells that in the last days they want to weaken and to overthrow every true believer. I am sure that many who were facing this, would stand up and grab their God-given dignity to tell satan and his cohorts: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH !
