“If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,
Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?
Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned?
It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear,” Luke 14:26-35.
“This is not time for The Body of Christ to retreat!
One-forth (¼) of the Nations people shall experience death. Nevertheless, people do not panic these things must be.
My children, it is so important that you tell people about The New Life in Christ. Those that die in Me shall enjoy Eternal Life.”
“But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming,” 1 Corinthians 15:20-23.
Some people shall simply die because of a fearful unbelieving heart.
“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory,” Luke 21:2527.
Children run to the Father of Light. I AM shinning My Light soooo bright as a Light House so all may see the clear path I have chosen. Oh children, run to Me.
“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path,” Psalm 119:105.
“They shall walk after the LORD: he shall roar like a lion: when he shall roar, then the children shall tremble from the west,” Hosea 11:10.
I have a safety net. Children just come to Me saying, “LORD, I do not understand what is happening and LORDm I do not know what to do”. And I will swoop you up like a butterfly.
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest,” Matthew 11:28.
“That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive,” Ephesians 4:14.
Crisis is all around. Remember the childhood story about three pigs and a wolf who sought them as prey?
The pigs did no count the cost of determining the wolf’s power. They started out doing things in their own strength.
Then the pigs allowed Wisdom to determine their fate. Finally, this wolf found a house he could not blow down.
I have given you A House of Prayer that no wolf can huff and puff to blow down.
Get into your Houses of Prayer. You will feel the winds blowing but stay in your safety zones and you shall stand the blast.
This is a Pentecost Promise.
“And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee,” Deuteronomy 7:15.
“Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are,” 1 Corinthians 3:8-17.
“Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy,” Psalm 107:2.
The Blessing of the Lord Be upon You,
