“There is no industrial waste in My Kingdom! There is no flotsam and jetsam, no discarding of old things.
There is no dumping of individuals overboard when they TRULY belong to Me and have relationship with ME.
Nothing goes to waste. And nothing in your life, despite any lapses of time before getting saved, or during growth will be wasted.
I AM the REDEEMER of LIFE and lives that belong to ME, are useful in some way, no matter how few talents, or skills a person may have.
All parts of the body are necessary, remember?
Even the weaker ones are necessary and have their role, if nothing else to test the hearts of those who are prideful in their own opinions!
I, unlike humans, do not cut off a part of My body because it is not working correctly. Instead, I redeem that part and fix that part that is inflamed, or swollen, or sick or seemingly rejectable and I make it into a shining vessel fit for the glory of the KING.
Ravens, whom many think of as awful birds, were useful to feed Elijah during famine. Look at nature and see the parallel to My Kingdom!
See how nothing in nature is wasted but each has it’s role to fulfill. See how the bees pollinate flowers, and create honey that is used by man. See how they pollinate crops that are ESSENTIAL to man.
Those pests that seem so annoying are food for some other creature of the earth, or serve some usefulness in the cycle of life.
Likewise ALL who are MINE, have differing gifts and talents and there is always SOMETHING that stands out in each individual that is a gift to the rest of the Body of Christ!
Look for those things in each other, instead of looking for the flaws and dings, look for the talents and positive qualities that you can encourage them with.
Do you not underestimate how I use every detail of your life to teach you something!
I AM Knowledge.
I AM Wisdom.
I AM Understanding.
I AM PEACE.
I AM Love !
I AM Kindness.
Ask Me to show you the strengths of others that I may bless them with encouragement and acknowledgement of their worth.
For SO MUCH pain is in the hearts of My people from being used and abused. They are in need of RESUSCITATION and REVIVING because of the harsh taskmaster, Satan, who has pummeled and prodded to test them in extraordinary ways.
Many have been in very sick churches and are laden with guilt and wrong teaching, believing themselves to be failures, or else so stressed out from all the warfare and strife of tongues that is in My body.
Your tongue is not to be used to bite and devour one another to build up and to exhort, to comfort and to confront.
The problem with many who complain is that they have not confronted, so then resentment and anger builds up, and rejection has taken a stiff toll in My body.
I AM coming to heal and RESTORE. I AM a GOD of RESTORATION and I have called you all to be repairers of the cities to dwell in, and restorers of the streets to dwell in.
I have called you to be an army of ambassadors who demonstrate MY love and kindness, my strength, peace and POWER to this generation!
I will also call the prophets and apostles to confront but it will be with authority and MY WORDS, not your own, and MY POWER that will render blessing or judgment, whichever I must do.
My glory is a two edged sword bringing conviction and judgment and empowerment and healing at the same time.
Be careful as I pour out My glory to not use the sword of My word like an axe handle! LOVE is the GREATEST.
MY LOVE is kind, gentle, and patient. It is not harsh, constrictive, and conditional. It is EVERLASTING and will endure forever and ever to all who love ME more than this world.
Do not love your things more than ME. Do not put the safety of your things above the safety of your soul!
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Remember that I love you My beloveds, for great peril lies ahead, and so few have made themselves ready. So few are willing to listen.
But soon I will startle them into submission by the displays of My power. The Lightening force of My SPIRIT will come suddenly to you and all will be changed.
Hold on a bit longer beloveds… the wait will be worth it! Soon and very soon you are going to see Your King.”
Do Not Love the World
“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever”1 John 2:15-17 NKJV.
“But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God — and righteousness and sanctification and redemption — that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord”1 Corinthians 1:27-31 NKJV.
“The Good News of Salvation” Isaiah 61.
