Just as last week, I have been instructed to show how relevant prophetic words can be in our lives.
Some have a time frame when they are to be revealed and others are constant as the written word of God.
Whether written – the Logos word, or spoken and revealed – the Rhema word of God, we need to cherish each word given and run the race and fight the good fight of faith!
This is from December 2009. As the year ends and the new year is upon us, we can expect more changes.
We will find that most of the effective and long lasting changes are those that will happen within us.
We will see that we are made of tougher and greater quality of character than we perceived.
We are made in His image after all. These changes will enable us to keep on moving closer to the Father, while others that may have run with you at one time begin to drop out.
Here is the message that the LORD spoke to our church on December 28.
The Spirit of the LORD says;
“Do not fret over the transitions and changes that I have allowed in your life.
Most of the things that have been removed; whether people, familiar situations or circumstances, would have obstructed you from reaching the ultimate goal or position that I AM bringing you to.
Some familiar-ties would have been an obstacle, while others would have been a deterrent to keep you from running unhindered.
Others would have caused you to be snared by the enemy of your soul and stopped completely. Let them go!
These obstructions in your life have hindered you from the clarity of great revelation.
These revelations are necessary in order for these times of transition. These changes have all been about bringing My people up to a higher level, changing how you see and what you see as being genuine and real.
Now you must release the load of weights that have caused your run to become sluggish and tiresome to you, you must choose to lay them down.
Your flight will be glorious, as you and I, shake from you all that would detain you from reaching your proper place and position in Me.
I have already spoken to you that the way would be narrow and not many will choose that way.
The way is made so that your eyes should only look forward and stay focused on Me and all that is vital to the Kingdom and its advancement.
This narrow, constricted passageway will lead you to the wide open spaces of living in the realms of My Spirit. My Holy Spirit has been directing your course, you may have struggled on this course, yet you did not fight against Holy Spirit and because you chose to yield to Holy Spirit, you will reach your destination with more power, more glory, more anointing, more wisdom and more understanding of Me and My ways.
You have now entered into a new position and place of authority, because of your endurance during times of transition.
New keys are now placed in your hands for the opening of doors that you thought were locked to you. You will enter boldly now without fear or shame.
You will walk into your promised territory, holding your head high, for you have kept the faith and stayed true to Me and My Word.
Your focus remained on Me and the Kingdom, even through the darkest times of change. For your faithfulness you will abound with blessings and rewards.
You were not lead astray by the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, or the pride of life. These three have slain many strong men of faith, yet, your love for Me remained strong.
I AM well pleased with you, My children. Keep moving on the path of holiness and your destination will always be glorious! Stay focused and My light will forever brighten your steps into the right position of holiness.”
“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven,” Matthew 16:19.
“And to the angel (messenger) of the assembly (church) in Philadelphia write: These are the words of the Holy One, the True One, He Who has the key of David, Who opens and no one shall shut, Who shuts and no one shall open: I know your [record of] works and what you are doing. See! I have set before you a door wide open which no one is able to shut; I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept My Word and guarded My message and have not renounced or denied My name,” Revelation 3:7-8.
“But the gate is narrow (contracted by pressure) and the way is straitened and compressed that leads away to life, and few are those who find it,” Matthew 7:14.
“Therefore then, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us,” Hebrews 12:1-2.
“Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but [only] one receives the prize? So run [your race] that you may lay hold [of the prize] and make it yours.” 1 Corinthians 9:24.
