I heard the word “Transitions.”
- a : Passage from one state, stage, subject, or place to another : CHANGE
b : A movement, development, or evolution from one form, stage, or style to another
- – not relevant
- An abrupt change in energy state or level (as of an atomic nucleus or a molecule) usually accompanied by loss or gain of a single quantum of energy.
The still small voice:
“I have catapulted many of you into a state of transition to ready you for what I AM about to do in changing your lives, that the promises I’ve made, and the plans I have for you may be accomplished.
Transitions are hard. Change is hard. But if you will yield fully to the purging I AM doing, and to My leading, you will be so elated at the final stage!
You have no idea yet the beautiful thing I AM doing, or how much I love you.
I AM so pleased with My progress you see.
I AM causing changes that will lead to UNITY and LOVE being made paramount in the body of Christ.”
“And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them. Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled,”John 17:10-12.
“I do not ask that You will take them out of the world, but that You will keep and protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world (worldly, belonging to the world), [just] as I am not of the world.
Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth.
Just as You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. And so for their sake and on their behalf I sanctify (dedicate, consecrate) Myself, that they also may be sanctified (dedicated, consecrated, made holy) in the Truth.
Neither for these alone do I pray [it is not for their sake only that I make this request], but also for all those who will ever come to believe in (trust in, cling to, rely on) Me through their word and teaching, that they all may be one, [just] as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe and be convinced that You have sent Me.
I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one [even] as We are one: I in them and You in Me, in order that they may become one and perfectly united, that the world may know and [definitely] recognize that You sent Me and that You have loved them [even] as You have loved Me.
Father, I desire that they also whom You have entrusted to Me [as Your gift to Me] may be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory, which You have given Me [Your love gift to Me]; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
O just and righteous Father, although the world has not known You and has failed to recognize You and has never acknowledged You, I have known You [continually]; and these men understand and know that You have sent Me.
I have made Your Name known to them and revealed Your character and Your very Self, and I will continue to make [You] known, that the love which You have bestowed upon Me may be in them [felt in their hearts] and that I [Myself] may be in them,”John 17:15-26 AMP.
“I have told you in My Word, that if you come to know and understand the depth of My love for you, then you can be filled with the fullness of God!” (Ephesians 3:18)
“May be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height…”
“It is MY LOVE that leads to repentance. So as you pour out this love I’ve given you to those who don’t know it.
LOVE GROWS and is nurtured, and then they are able to receive it and give it. The Kingdom grows, because of shifts in belief.
No longer will they believe the lies, because they will SEE and HEAR, and see DEMONSTRATED the LOVE of God that I have put in you. For love to be believed, it must be demonstrated.
If your mother or father constantly TOLD you they loved you, but didn’t act like it. Would you believe them? Wouldn’t you doubt?
In fact many youth in this age feel a lack of love shown. Many others also are love starved.
They need to have more than TALK. Talk does not convince anyone of love. It is self sacrifice and DEMONSTRATING IT, that influences change in people.
People have had enough TALK. Empty talk has been quite prevalent in much of the church.
I love you, God loves you, but no DEMONSTRATION.
I still go home to my house and sleep quite comfortably while little children starve, a single mom can’t pay her rent, while people are being killed.
I sing and I dance, and celebrate, but where is the weeping?
Where is the rejoicing with those who rejoice, and weeping with those who weep?
The world, and especially this generation which is the most knowledgeable, yet, KNOWS WHEN PEOPLE ARE NOT BEING REAL, THEY KNOW!
I want My church to reflect MY LOVE. NOT your own conditional love, but MY UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
I don’t judge by the outside. I don’t judge by actions even of others, but I LOOK AT THE HEART.
I AM WAITING for the church to RISE UP and call ME LORD of their lives!
I AM waiting for the church to be perfected in love, so that unlike the priest and pharisee in the parable of the GOOD SAMARITAN, they will not pass by those who are in great need of healing and deliverance!
For some, I will just want you to be their friend, to show them love and care. When you have MY LOVE, then you will FEEL the pain in others.
You will see the pain and roots of pain, and be willing to lay down your life in the sense of praying with them, and helping them in whatever way I LEAD YOU TO DO!
You will follow ME and what I want, and not disdain those who are in need, because they cramp your style of living!
I AM calling many of you to raise up houses and places of REFUGE for those who in the days ahead will need safety and security, and who will be used for harvesting.
Do NOT listen to man, or to your own heart, but listen to ME!
Listen to how and where, and what I want to do. I will provide all that is needed for those whose heart is willing to serve, and not just be served.
The enemy is sowing seeds of doubt right now. He is trying to discredit many, to make them feel left out or confused about what I’ve told them.
DO NOT LISTEN TO THE NAYSAYERS, who say you can’t do that!
THINK BIG My children. Do not think to LIMIT ME! I AM NOT LIMITED.
I CAN DO ANYTHING! If I have told you something, WAR with that Word!
Shout it from the rooftops and BELIEVE that I AM ABLE to do what I tell you!
Just WAIT on ME for all the answers. I will not disappoint you. But you must NOT go ahead of Me, just wait on ME.
I’ve said that I love you with an EVERLASTING LOVE, and that My mercy endures FOREVER. Yet many think My mercy runs out.
It never runs out for My own! NEVER!
YOU are My favorites because you said YES to ME!
I will uphold all who are truly MINE. I LOVE YOU and I will not forsake My own children.
I never CHANGE. My character remains consistent. MY LOVE NEVER RUNS OUT!”
