I asked The LORD, “What will you do with us, LORD?”
He replied, “I will LOVE you, each of you. As you seek Me, I will guide you on My Path for you. Keep your eyes focused on My Face. Look into My Eyes, as you stay focused on Me.
DO NOT let the things of the world and of mankind distract you, causing you to lose your way, or to remove yourself from Me.”
“For those who are according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the [Holy] Spirit.” Romans 8:5. 5
“Let me warn you therefore, beloved, that knowing these things before hand, you should be on your guard, lest you be carried away by the error of lawless and wicked [persons and] fall from your own [present] firm condition [your own steadfastness of mind].” 2 Peter 3:17 17
“Let it be known, as you seek My Face, all the more, so will I pour out over you treasures from Heaven, that only come through Me.
Even now, many waiver between Me and the things of the world and mankind in their hearts. Remember, your heart is evil.”
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly perverse and corrupt and severely, mortally sick! Who can know it [perceive, understand, be acquainted with his own heart and mind]?” Jeremiah 17:9
“The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination and intention of all human thinking was only evil continually.” Genesis 6:5

“So many hearts are being exposed now, and when there is no repentance, even more will be exposed as reprobate, for who they truly are in the days ahead.
Money, Power, Fame, and Influence are hard to resist from the enemy when you lack in your relationship with Me. Even those in high places, who were My Elect, are not exempt.”

“Remember, the devil offered Jesus worldly things. But His relationship with Me, helped save Him, as He refused it and walked away. Thus it should be for each of you.”
“Then Jesus was led (guided) by the [Holy] Spirit into the wilderness (desert) to be tempted (tested and tried) by the devil. He went without food for 40 days and 40 nights, and later He was hungry.
The tempter came and said to Him, If You are God’s Son, command these stones to be made into loaves of bread. But He replied, It has been written, Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.
Then the devil took Him into the holy city and placed Him on a turret (pinnacle, gable) of the temple sanctuary.
He said to Him, If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written, He will give His angels charge over you, and they will bear you up on their hands, lest you strike your foot against a stone.
Jesus said to him, On the other hand it is written also, You shall not tempt, tempt thoroughly, or try exceedingly, The LORD your God.
Again, the devil took Him up on a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory (the splendor, magnificence, preeminence, and excellence) of them.
He said to Him, These things, all taken together, I will give You, if You will prostrate Yourself before me and do homage and worship me.
Then Jesus said to him, Begone, Satan! For it has been written, You shall worship The LORD your God, and Him alone shall you serve.
Then the devil departed from Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.” Matthew 4:1-11
“The days ahead will be both dark and light, largely depending on your relationship with Me.
I will continue to move and shake things up, for My Kingdom purposes. I AM getting rid of the tares, so that My Beloveds may shine in all My Glory as they harvest the wheat, as it is ripe and My Time is upon them. More workers are needed in My Fields!
I AM about GIVING. So who will give Me your everything?”

“This good news of the kingdom (the Gospel) will be preached throughout the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then will come the end.” Matthew 24:14
“Who will pour themselves out as a drink offering, so that others may be healed, fed, clothed and learn to walk in My Words and Ways?”

“If you pour out that with which you sustain your own life for the hungry and satisfy the need of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in darkness, and your obscurity and gloom become like the noonday.

You shall be like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters fail not.” Isaiah 58:10-11

“Who will teach My Children the Way and Words of My Holiness and the joy in Worshiping Me?”

Allow the little ones to come to Me, and do not forbid or restrain or hinder them, for of such [as these] is the kingdom of heaven composed. And He put His hands upon them, and then went on His way.” Matthew 19:13-15

“I will open my mouth in a parable (in instruction by numerous examples); I will utter dark sayings of old [that hide important truth] — which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
We will not hide them from their children, but we will tell to the generation to come the praiseworthy deeds of The LORD, and His might, and the wonderful works that He has performed.” Psalm 78:2-4
“Who will dance before Me as David did, offering himself as a sacrifice of praise?”
“David danced before The LORD with all his might, clad in a linen ephod [a priest’s upper garment].
So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of The LORD with shouting and with the sound of the trumpet. As the ark of The LORD came into the City of David, Michal, Saul’s daughter [David’s wife], looked out of the window and saw King David leaping and dancing before The LORD, and she despised him in her heart.
They brought in the ark of The LORD and set it in its place inside the tent which David had pitched for it, and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before The LORD.
When David had finished offering the burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name [and presence] of The LORD of hosts, distributed among all the people, the whole multitude of Israel, both to men and women, to each a cake of bread, a portion of meat, and a cake of raisins. So all the people departed, each to his house.
Then David returned to bless his household. [His wife] Michal daughter of Saul came out to meet David and said, How glorious was the king of Israel today, who stripped himself of his kingly robes and uncovered himself in the eyes of his servants’ maids as one of the worthless fellows shamelessly uncovers himself!
David said to Michal, It was before The LORD, Who chose me above your father and all his house to appoint me as prince over Israel, the people of The LORD. Therefore will I make merry [in pure enjoyment] before The LORD.
I will be still more lightly esteemed than this, and will humble and lower myself in my own sight [and yours]. But by the maids you mentioned, I will be held in honor. Michal the daughter of Saul had no child to the day of her death.” 2 Samuel 6:14-23
“Again I will build you and you will be built, O Virgin Israel! You will again be adorned with your timbrels [small one-headed drums] and go forth in the dancing [chorus] of those who make merry.” Jeremiah 31:4
“Who will spend time with Me, waiting on Me quietly, so you will hear Me clearly, without interruptions?”

“Our inner selves wait [earnestly] for The LORD; He is our Help and our Shield.” Psalm 33:20

“Guide me in Your truth and faithfulness and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You [You only and altogether] do I wait [expectantly] all the day long.” Psalm 25:5
“These are the ones who seek My Face, not My Hands. Remember, the way is narrow.”
“Enter through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and spacious and broad is the way that leads away to destruction, and many are those who are entering through it. 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.
Beware of false prophets, who come to you dressed as sheep, but inside they are devouring wolves. You will fully recognize them by their fruits. Do people pick grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles?
Even so, every healthy (sound) tree bears good fruit [worthy of admiration], but the sickly (decaying, worthless) tree bears bad (worthless) fruit.
A good (healthy) tree cannot bear bad (worthless) fruit, nor can a bad (diseased) tree bear excellent fruit [worthy of admiration].
Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire. Therefore you will fully know them by their fruits.” Matthew 7:13-20
God Bless You!
