May 30, 2015.   A breakthrough will lead you to a breakout.  You have hungered for a bright new day when the supernatural glow of Jesus would be manifested so that all could see and touch His glory.  Keep believing and asking without ceasing for that to happen. Your own breakthrough will be big and noticeable, though it will not be for your flesh to flaunt.  Instead, the humility of Jesus will radiate, drawing more and more people to Him through so many ways.  And when the Holy Spirit fills and baptizes, the explosion of Jesus on the scene will take place.
Acts 2:2-4 (NLT)  “Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting.  Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them.  And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages, as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability.”   Ras Robinson

May 30, 2015.   Many and much is coming.  Some is coming through the front door and some through the back door.  Get ready, not necessarily physically, but be sure you’re ready spiritually.  There will be problems. Haven’t there always been?  But you have gone through problems in the past that will enable you to handle these without too much effort.  Continue to follow your authorities.  Listen carefully to what is said.  You will be able to hear things that others cannot hear.  But this is okay.  In fact this is good and even essential.  Be prepared.
John 10:27-28 (NASB)  “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.”   Bev Robinson

May 30, 2015.   The Israelites took forty years to get to the Promised Land.  You have had to go through a desert a time or two, but your wilderness experience has lasted much longer than expected.  Your thoughts are, I didn’t sign up for this ordeal, otherwise I would have stayed back.  Be thankful.  Reflect on all that had to take place to get you where you are.  Appreciate the good that has come from your journey.  Some people are entering their desert and you are coming out . I am your Deliverer.
Isaiah 63:7 (NASB)  “I shall make mention of the lovingkindnesses of the Lord, the praises of the Lord, according to all that the Lord has granted us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which He has granted them according to His compassion and according to the abundance of His lovingkindnesses.”  Kevin Robinson


May 29, 2015.   You have introduced many to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Many of these have occurred face to face, one on one.  You have seen even more come to Christ in great numbers.  At times you have wondered if these converts were real and if they continued in their new faith.  Some of this you may never know on a first hand basis.  But you can trust that the love of God will supernaturally redeem them and guide them to their eternal home in God.  The word of God in Scripture promises this to be true.
Exodus 15:13 (NLT)  “With your unfailing love you lead the people you have  redeemed. In your might, you guide them to your sacred home.”   Ras Robinson

May 29, 2015.   Pay no regard to the feelings that this is a strange time.  You don’t want to get bogged down there.  It is a pit that is hard to get out of.  The best thing you can do at this time is do what you know you are supposed to do.  Another way to think about it is do the next right thing.  Don’t look back to ask why this happened and don’t look forward to what may happen.  Keep your focus on what has to be done now.  Do that and win.
Philippians 3:14-16 (ESV)  “I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. Only let us hold true to what we have attained.”   Bev Robinson

May 29, 2015.   Feelings of isolation and loneliness are issues you have battled before and now they are reappearing.  Leaders throughout the Bible struggled with the same matters you face right now.  When you are in front, you wonder: Am I doing the right thing?  Am I an effective leader?   Are people following me?  These thoughts are not uncommon for people called to lead.  Continue to follow My lead in every aspect of your life.  Yield to My Lordship and flourish where you are.
Psalm 1:1-3 (NLT)  “Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers.  But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night.  They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.”  Kevin Robinson


May 28, 2015.   Clear communication is my goal in marriage and with our offspring.  Unfortunately, my words and messages are often not plain and clear.  We have opportunity to make some things more clear in family, church and other relationships.  Being able to communicate clearly, laced with love and compassion is crucial in all relationships.  The Lord spoke through the prophet Habakkuk that we are to make a practice of writing our message down before we communicate.  He goes on to admonish the communicator to “make it clear.”  In another rendering, He says “make it plain.”
Habakkuk 2:2 (GW)  “Then the LORD answered me, “Write the vision. Make it clear on tablets so that anyone can read it quickly.”  Ras Robinson

May 28, 2015.   Haven’t I been leading you every day?  Haven’t you been following every day?  Yes you have and you have done it quite well.  Right now though you have come up to an impasse.  It isn’t of your own making.  It has just happened.  Take the opportunity to rest.  It wasn’t scheduled.  but it is there for the taking.  I know this hasn’t happened at a good time, but you really have no other choice.  Don’t try and figure out why it came at this time.  Make the most of it.
Proverbs 4:11-12 (NASB)  “I have directed you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in upright paths.  When you walk, your steps will not be impeded; And if you run, you will not stumble.”   Bev Robinson

May 28, 2015.   It’s time to take ownership of issues that have brought you to this particular place and time.  In the past, you have been able to divert the attention elsewhere.  But right now the situation has reached its tipping point.  What will your answer be this time?  Will you duck and cover, or will recognize your shortcomings and do something about them.  It is essential for you to see what you have done.  Identifying your role is critical and more than half the battle.  Be ready for a plan of action.
Proverbs 19:1-3   “Better to be poor and honest than to be dishonest and a fool. Enthusiasm without knowledge is no good; haste makes mistakes.  People ruin their lives by their own foolishness and then are angry at the Lord.”  Kevin Robinson


May 27, 2015.   Big trouble. Someone is in serious need.  What can be done?  Is there any help available?  Friends and loved ones are praying.  There will always be such days but this one is huge.  The answer?  Put all the weight and pain over on the Lord.  Allow the Lord to bring you into His secret hiding place, His tabernacle.  Jesus is your Rock of healing, defense and victory.  All things are possible to the God of miracles.  Ask for a big miracle.           
Psalm 27:5 (NASB)  “For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; In the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock.”   Ras Robinson 

May 27, 2015.   An opportunity passed.  You weren’t sure what to do so you did nothing.  When such an opportunity comes again try not to be so stunned that you don’t ask Me.  Let Me implant this in your mind now so you will remember.  You’re in a learning curve, thinking you’re too old to be learning this.  This is erroneous thinking, Beloved.  You are never too old to learn.  Another opportunity is coming.  You will not miss this one.  But there’ll be opposition.  Don’t be caught off guard.  Listen to My voice.
1 Corinthians 16:9 (AMP)  “For a wide door of opportunity for effectual [service] has opened to me [there, a great and promising one], and [there are] many adversaries”   Bev Robinson

May 27, 2015.   The hardships you are facing are real. Many of the struggles you’re dealing with are because you live in an imperfect world.  Though Satan is defeated, he is resolved to wreak havoc all around you.  Sometimes he uses the rotting corpse of your old self.  It wants to rise up and reign.  Conflicts are continually coming.  Be prepared for battle at all times, especially when you’ve sought Me wholeheartedly in your affairs.  Victorious living is a choice.  Strengthen yourself through My power and prepare yourself for war and to win.
Ephesians 6:12 (NLT)   “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.”   Kevin Robinson


May 26, 2015.   Committing a sin or an act of stepping out of your God-given righteousness blemishes your personal integrity and character.  It truly breaks your heart when you do this.  Most of the time you were blinded to the coming consequences of the impact on the persons of Holy Spirit and Jesus.  But you voluntarily stepped out of righteousness.  God is full of grace and will rescue you over and over again until you truly repent and walk straight again.  God still forever forgives and keeps no record.  You are strategically important to the Kingdom of God.
2 Corinthians 1:10 (MSG)  “And he did it, rescued us from certain doom. and he’ll do it again, rescuing us as many times as we need rescuing.”  Ras Robinson 

May 26, 2015.   There will always be opposition.  If not from one place it will be from another.  Often it comes from the place you least suspect.  Most often it is not because you are doing something wrong, but because you are doing something right.  Your enemy will oppose what is right.  Now just get used to it.  Let it roll off you.  Don’t worry.  If the opposition is from Me, I have ways to let you know.  I won’t bring any condemnation.  Instead I bring wisdom about how to proceed.
Proverbs 8:20 (AMP)  “I [Wisdom] walk in the way of righteousness (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation), in the midst of the paths of justice,”   Bev Robinson

May 26, 2015.   As Christians, you ought to be actively reigning in life.  That’s not to say you won’t go through hardship and suffering, but you possess more than you know or understand.  You’ve often found yourself wallowing in despair and gloom instead of walking in My joy and peace.  Refuse to let Satan be a party crasher. Knowing whose you are will raise you up to realms of victorious living.  It isn’t pride to have a slight strut in your step.  Let the transformation of My Spirit within you transform you.
2 Corinthians 3:17-18 (NLT)  “For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.  So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord.  And the Lord-who is the Spirit-makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.”  Kevin Robinson


May 25, 2015.   Through faith, you are seeing breakthroughs in family issues and in every other area of your life.  You are receiving revelation that praying in the Holy Spirit will also comfort and heal while also moving mountains.  Be aware that your offspring are well aware of your prayer life.  Even if it is apathetically for some, they still take note of your spiritual walk. The very life you live before them is an open teaching guide book to them.  With all this in mind, put the practice of prayer and intercession as your top priority.
Jude 1:20 (AMP)   “But you, beloved, build yourselves up [founded] on your most holy faith [make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], praying in the Holy Spirit.”   Ras Robinson

May 25, 2015.   Unload your mind, emotions and attitudes of the negatives.  From time to time demons swirl around you.  They come to rob you of peace, love and joy.  I give you peace, love and joy and they hate it.  I know this is deep spiritual information.  You often are not aware of it and often don’t think this way but nevertheless it is true.  Now fill your mind with good thoughts of thanksgiving for what you have and for whose you are.  This will bring My wisdom and the right way of thinking.
Proverbs 23:23 (NLT)  “Get the truth and never sell it; also get wisdom, discipline, and good judgment.”  Bev Robinson

May 25, 2015.   Let order be at the forefront of everything. Submission is essential within the body of Christ.  I am the one who established mandates of instruction throughout time as you know it.  Order is established from the Father, toward the Son and Holy Spirit. This must be how it is with you also.  Yielding is essential for direction and instruction to be given and understood.  That being said, let those who prophesy wait on My prophecy.  Spiritual foresight is given for Me to be exalted and My Father to be glorified.
1 Corinthians 14:31-32 (ESV)   “For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all be encouraged,and the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets. For God is not a God of confusion but of peace.”  Kevin Robinson


May 23, 2015.   You walk a different path.  The higher road is always your choice.  The low road is prone toward darkness.  You have found light to be attractive and it is inviting to your spirit.  The views are better from the top road.  But you have a question.  Why do those who seem called, chosen and even ordained fall into the pitch-black dark?  Wisdom says they got on a slippery slope, perhaps innocently at first, but then fell away through their own missteps.  Get back on the high road.  You belong there.
Jeremiah 23:12 (MSG)   “But they won’t get by with it.  They’ll find themselves on a slippery slope, careening into the darkness, somersaulting into the pitch-black dark. I’ll make them pay for their crimes. It will be the Year of Doom.”   GOD’s Decree.  Ras Robinson

May 23, 2015.   Are you filling your mind with thoughts of Me and My ways?  Are your thoughts of something that has turned sour?  Are you hanging out with people who follow Me and believe the best or has your circle of acquaintances and friends become those who doubt and criticize?  Get yourself going in the right direction.  Fill you mind with My word and My wisdom.  Think thoughts of success and thoughts that I will never leave you on your own.  Let My peace and blessings permeate your waking and sleeping hours.
Romans 12:2 (NKJV)  “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”   Bev Robinson

May 23, 2015.   Communication is essential for healthy in the body of Christ.  Since you received the message of good news, it’s your responsibility to spread the word to convey the true meaning of why I came.  Aren’t you glad someone made the effort to carry My words to you?  I was sent to deliver the letter of love from My father to persons who desperately need Me.  People long to hear words of hope.  No matter what avenue is used to spread My Gospel, connect with others about Me through whatever means are necessary.
John 3:30 (ESV)  “He must increase, but I must decrease.”  Kevin Robinson


May 22, 2015.   Thinking, speaking and doing positive things may require a brain do-over.  But it is guaranteed to change your life forever.  You can do this.  God does it with you all the time.  He does not concentrate on your sin, mistakes and shortcomings.  Instead, He calls you His special one, the one in whom He delights.  He even says you can do all things through Christ who strengthens and keeps you and makes you strong in all good things.  Maybe you could tell yourself just before you fall asleep or first thing when you wake up, “I’m excited in God.”
Philippians 4:8-9 (KJV)  “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.”  Ras Robinson

May 22, 2015.   I know you are discouraged.  I also know you don’t want to talk about it.  Talking about it engenders events you don’t want to deal with.  They almost make you more discouraged.  So what do you do?  Tell Me all that you are feeling.  Tell Me the things you fear.  Tell Me what you are angry about.  Tell Me what you don’t want to do and what you want.  I can help you.  Deep down you know that.  The deep down place is the place from which you will rise.
Psalm 42:7-8 (NKJV)  “Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and billows have gone over me.  The LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, And in the night His song shall be with me —  A prayer to the God of my life.”  Bev Robinson

May 22, 2015.   Think about it. What brings you the most happiness and joy?  Is it a hobby? I s it going on vacation somewhere?  Is it your family, or grandchildren?  Is it meeting with your local body of Christ?  I know you have tried many things in an effort to attain the happiness for which you have longed.  I implore and appeal for you to find joy in Me and in Me at the top of the list. In doing so, you will find immense pleasure in the results. Make Me your main source of delight.
Psalm 37:4-5 (KJV)  “Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.  Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.” Kevin Robinson


May 21, 2015.   Know this. Fear is like a slippery eel.  It is slimy, deceptive, hiding and almost impossible to capture and eliminate.  It often hides in dark places, cleverly disguised in nothingness (not seen, heard or felt).  Also know this.  You will find and be able to cast out this demon of fear through shining the light of Jesus on the fear and casting it down, out and away.  Do not be intimidated by fear.  Gather yourself together and put on the armor of Jesus and rebuke fear now and forever more.  It will work.
1 John 4:18 (MSG)  “There is no room in love for fear.  Well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life-fear of death, fear of judgment-is one not yet fully formed in love.”   Ras Robinson

May 21, 2015.   Negative thoughts are coming close to overwhelming you.  This is not good.  Unless you do something about it, your health will be affected in the coming days, months and even years.  If you think repeatedly on these negative thoughts, they will lodge in your mind and body causing something you definitely don’t want.  I love to hear praise and thanksgiving but that is not all.  I want to know about all you are going through.  I already know about it, but Beloved, it is good for you to unload your mind.
James 5:11 (MSG)   “What a gift life is to those who stay the course!  You’ve heard, of course, of Job’s staying power, and you know how God brought it all together for him at the end.  That’s because God cares, cares right down to the last detail.”   Bev Robinson

May 21, 2015.   Life recently has felt like you are walking a tight rope.  Knowing of large chasms which you have had to pass over has been a bit disheartening.  This is not a new feeling, because you have encountered situations like this before.  A balancing act can be a real challenge at times, but you must keep your gaze focused on Me.  Don’t allow fear of what might happen to enter your mind.  Keep putting one foot after another and trust Me to guide every step you take.
Matthew 14:29-31 (ESV)  “He said, “Come.”  So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus.  But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.”  Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”   Kevin Robinson


May 20, 2015.  You are beginning a new venture.  You are certain that you have heard from God.  This new venture will specialize in briars and briar patches.  You know the routine.  You actually thrive while working the routine.  You are like Brer Rabbit who begged not to be thrown into the briar patch while actually loving and excelling in briars.  You have been sent to the briars.  In fact the new venture you have received is to rescue rabbits who are in trouble.  Don’t complain.  Be like Jesus and rejoice greatly at the privilege of cleaning up briar patches to the glory of God.
Psalm 20:1-2 (GW)  “The LORD will answer you in times of trouble.  The name of the God of Jacob will protect you.  He will send you help from his holy place and support you from Zion.”   Ras Robinson 

May 20, 2015.   It feels like you are wheeling around in circles and going nowhere, but that isn’t the case at all.  You asked Me to lead you and I have been.  I have been working out other events to bring my purposes about at the right time.  The right word at the right time is very important.  All things are coming together.  Be at peace.  You will see in the near future and understand why it feels like you were going in circles.  I don’t waste time. Words and actions will flow together.
Proverbs 15:23 (MLB)  “What joy to a man is the answer of his mouth; for how good is a word at the right time!”   Bev Robinson

May 20, 2015.   My child, you have been given privileges as almost none other, in knowing Me like you do.  You have possession and rights as heirs of My kingdom.  As My offspring, you get to possess, keep, and enjoy, the same liberties and freedoms which are My Son’s.  You have been adopted.  With that status, you actually have more rights than that of a natural born child.  Embrace the fact that I am your Father.  Ask of Me what you will.  Can you see the joy you bring to My heart?
Ephesians 1:5 (NLT)  “God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ.  This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.”   Kevin Robinson


May 19, 2015.   You are at an historic personal river crossing.  Successfully crossing over will bring you into your land of promise, the inheritance for which you have waited so long.  This is the day for which you have been waiting.  The Elijah in your life has done well, but he is dead now.  You have received directly from Me an Elisha anointing to double and quadruple the former blessing Elijah received.  There is a supernatural passing of the mantle from the old to the new.  Strike the river that divides you from all I have promised.  I will divide the river for you to safely cross.  Great and rewarding exploits await you.  God is with you! Go.
2 Kings 2:13-14 (NLT)  “Elisha picked up Elijah’s cloak, which had fallen when he was taken up.  Then Elisha returned to the bank of the Jordan River.  He struck the water with Elijah’s cloak and cried out, “Where is the LORD, the God of Elijah?”  Then the river divided, and Elisha went across.”   Ras Robinson 

May 19, 2015.   With some people discipline doesn’t have a good reputation.  They don’t choose to discipline themselves and thereby don’t get much of substance done.  Discipline and disciple have the same root word.  Jesus was My son but He also was My disciple. He disciplined Himself to follow Me absolutely.  Whatever I said, He did.  Don’t let yourself be one who gives discipline a bad name.  If you don’t follow what I say with discipline, not much will be done.  Say what I say and do what I say.
John 8:28-29 (NASB)   “So Jesus said, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me.”And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.”   Bev Robinson

May 19, 2015.   What My Father longs for is obedience.  He is looking for people who will be in agreement with what is in His heart.  Your heart of stone has been replaced with My heart which is willing to do His ways.  You are replacing your desires with His.  It is a process that becomes easier with ongoing pinpoint respect and reverence.  God will not impose His will upon you.  From love He respects you.  Be willing to attempt His ways.  It’s not a matter of sacrifice, but rather one of covenant.
John 14:21 (NLT)  “Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love


May 18, 2015.   Being a pathfinder and pioneer is how I made you.  Your heart beats to the rhythm of adventure and exploration of new and better things.  Many do not understand. Others follow, if with some reluctance, until they see the new horizons.  God Himself is the Creator of the new things.  He is leading His sheep today into new pastures never before explored.  Finding in this quest the clear path He has made is essential.  As a leader you will pay a price.  Those who like to challenge will have questions.  But this is good.  Be patient, loving and encouraging.  Finding the new paths and rivers, though tedious, will be rewarding in the end.  Take a deep breath, throw your shoulders back and look up into His eyes.  Stick very close to Him.
Isaiah 43:19 (NLT)   “For I am about to do something new.  See, I have already begun!  Do you not see it?  I will make a pathway through the wilderness.  I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”  Ras Robinson 

May 18, 2015.   Upcoming decisions have to be made.  Right now you don’t know which way to choose.  I know this is hard even to think about.  Changes will come as a result of the decisions and you aren’t sure if you want changes.  Don’t get into a worry mode.  Leave it alone for a while.  Quit thinking about it.  You have heard Me.  Now it is time to fully rest in faith.  I have the answers that are best for all involved.  I will show you the best choice.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (MSG)  “Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for GOD’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track.”   Bev Robinson

May 18, 2015.   Is your love evident?  Have you become listless, and/or lethargic?  You have been hoping and praying for a change.  I encourage you not to get downtrodden or to take on a defeated mindset.  Continue to show forth tenacity with your thoughts and words to those around you and especially to those who look up to you.  Never ever give up or lose faith, regardless of what your eyes and ears tell you . Be steadfast and keep your hope alive. May endurance be synonymous with your name.  Let love prevail.
1 Corinthians 13:7 (AMP)  “Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].”   Kevin Robinson


May 16, 2015.   I AM very pleased with you.  Mistakes and missteps were not intentional and are forgotten.  You have been faithful to obey Me in the assignments I have given.  Your record in My kingdom is very good. Many thousands have been blessed.  I give you high marks.  But now, there is a new turn that I have declared.  You have both seen and heard these new things in your spirit.  You will see them spring forth accompanied by strong angels.  What is coming will cause the past to pale beside this new turn.  Trust and obey.
Isaiah 42:9 (NKJV)  “Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.”   Ras Robinson

May 16, 2015.   Out of frustration you gave up.  It was not a matter of faith that brought you to surrender, but you did surrender.  The reason doesn’t matter.  What matters is you gave up.  Now you are seeing the results of the sweet surrender, knowing you can’t handle things like this yourself.  You are growing and learning even if it is hind sight.  The next time there is a problem, remember what happened this time.  Don’t quickly move on to something else.  Rehearse how I came to your rescue.
Daniel 6:23 (MSG)  “When the king heard these words, he was happy. He ordered Daniel taken up out of the den. When he was hauled up, there wasn’t a scratch on him. He had trusted his God.”   Bev Robinson

May 16, 2015.  Satan may be the accuser of the brethren, but there is no reason to join ranks with him.  What methods are you using to deride, condemn and criticize other believers.  It might be someone from a different denomination, perhaps someone who knows Scripture better than you or even leaders on the front line.  You are the body, are you not?  They are your brothers and sisters aren’t they?  Build up one another instead of tearing each other down and apart.  You desperately need each other now more than ever.
Acts 7:59-60 (NLT) “As they stoned him, Stephen prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” He fell to his knees, shouting, “Lord, don’t charge them with this sin!”  And with that, he died.”   Kevin Robinson


May 15, 2015.   You are not a fighter who walks or flees away.  Circumstances and situations have settled in the bottom of your soul.  While this is indeed discouraging, you will not walk away from the fight.  This fight you are in is a good fight.  Your faithfulness not to quit or give up will win the fight for you.  The Lord says, “I am sending My best and most mighty angels to assist and even to rescue you.  They are now working.  Right now, they have already arrived at your door.  Keep the prize alive.  Let them in.”
2 Timothy 4:7-8 (NLT)  “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful.  And now the prize awaits me-the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing.”  Ras Robinson 

May 15, 2015.   An underrated principle of life is submission to authority.  This is something you were taught little about when you were growing up.  In certain areas of your life you do well, but in other areas it isn’t well at all.  These areas have caused problems and have challenged you for a very long time.  I know your heart and deep down you want to obey.  Beloved, it isn’t too late to learn.  I can teach you . Only pay close attention to what I say and obey Me.  Listen and learn.
1 Samuel 15:22 (NIV)  “But Samuel replied: “Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the LORD?  To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.”  Bev Robinson

May 15, 2015.   Enjoy the view.  You now have a new perspective from which you can see things more clearly.  For too long, your vision has been obstructed by what you thought were permanent obstacles.  What you’re seeing is not a dream, it is reality.  You are at a point now where scales have been removed from your eyes and everything is in focus and very detailed.  The scenes you’re seeing are eagle-eyed and just what the body of Christ needs now.  Declare things you are seeing.  These visions will greatly encourage others.
1 Corinthians 2:12-13 (NLT)  “And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.  When we tell you these things, we do not use words that come from human wisdom. Instead, we speak words given to us by the Spirit, using the Spirit’s words to explain spiritual truths.”   Kevin Robinson


May 14, 2015.  Our May 11, 2015 post has been re-written for clarity and is inserted today:

May 11, 2015. You will see the face of the Lord. While this is true for you, there are those around you who may never see His face here on earth. God is calling you to intercede for them. The Lord Himself is righteous. He imparts His righteousness to you. His desire is that your righteousness, from Him, will gain for you and all other believers access to see His face here on earth as well as in Heaven. He will place a desire within you to live justly and uprightly in order that you may see Him holy and altogether righteous. You will see His face in Heaven for sure, but some will see Him here on earth.
Psalm 11:7 (NIV)  “For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.”   Ras Robinson 

May 14, 2015.   Today is a good day to catch up. Some things need tending to that have become backlogged. Now is the time to get them done. These things are important and really need to be done. This is a grace day with an attachment of ease and efficiency. These are things you have put off until a better day. This is the better day. Also make some contacts today. Calls, emails, letters can be done today with efficiency. Keep your list open. I will bring to mind what needs to be done.

Ephesians 5:15-17 (NASB)  “Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.”  Bev Robinson

May 14, 2015.   Worry is tiring and wearisome to your soul. It has taken a toll on your mind, will and emotions. Worry has worn you out.  What will it take for you to release your cares to Me and place them upon My shoulders?  You are an earthen vessel and can only handle so much dead weight in the natural and also the spiritual.  Place your hope and trust in Me.  Leave it there.  Has your angst moved you in your desired direction?  No.  Stop trying to control your situations and live peacefully.

Philippians 4:6-7 (ERV)  “Don’t worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks for what you have.  And because you belong to Christ Jesus, God’s peace will stand guard over all your thoughts and feelings.  His peace can do this far better than our human minds.”   Kevin Robinson


 

May 13, 2015.   People see a depiction of the real Jesus in you.  Some even call you the “real deal.”  If that is so, it is a very high compliment and wonderful affirmation.  Allow Paul to be your mentor when it comes to clarity and the power of the Gospel.  Imitate him.  No one can put Jesus on display quite like you can.  Humble yourself, stand up straight and tall.  Deliver Jesus wherever you.  Like Paul, enlist people to pray for you as you proclaim Jesus in many ways today.  “I have chosen you,” says the Lord.
Colossians 4:4 (NLT)  “Pray that I will proclaim this message as clearly as I should.”  Ras Robinson

May 13, 2015.   Don’t let yourself get caught up in an offense.  The option is before you and is pulling on your emotions.  Don’t go there Beloved.  I know the hurt it caused, but choose the high road. Choose the option that I chose.  I chose to forgive and I can help you.  I know you don’t feel like forgiving.  You feel like giving the same and more of what you were given.  But chose My way.  The one who offended will reap what was sown.  Chose the way of blessing the offender.
Luke 17:1 (NKJV)  “Then He said to the disciples, “It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come!”   Bev Robinson

May 13, 2015.   Make your dwelling place one that is encircled with and overflowing with Me. I brought forth the canonization of the Scriptures at the perfect time.  I purposed the writers of both the Old and New Testaments to declare what I did, what I am doing, and what I will do.  Set your mind towards individuals who persevered and overcame, all through faith in Me.  Recognize My beauty and splendor which is displayed throughout the Word.  The Bible is not a fairy tale.  It is a guidebook.  Embrace all that I am.
Philippians 4:8-9 (NIV)  “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.  Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me-put it into practice.  And the God of peace will be with you.”   Kevin Robinson


May 12, 2015.   You have received the gift of righteousness.  Embrace it with humility as the way of life now and for eternity.  The core of it is blameless conduct with right attitudes.  This noun describes justice, right actions, and right attitudes, as expected from both God and you in relating to people.  Faith in God was counted as righteousness for Abraham and obedience to the Lord’s Law was further evidence of his faith that God considered as righteousness.  Those who sow righteousness will receive the same in return.  Be righteous like your spiritual father Abraham.
Proverbs 12:28 (NASB)  “In the way of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death.”  Ras Robinson

May 12, 2015.   Bad news has surfaced.  You had wondered about something and now you know for sure what is happening. It is disappointing to learn about but you aren’t surprised.  You know about such things and know these negative actions can be reversed.  You know that good can come from this.  Real repentance and forgiveness must happen for change to come, but it can happen with My guidance and help.  Generational curses can be broken and reversed.  Without repentance and forgiveness this definitely will continue.  You know so you can pray while exercising faith.
Genesis 50:19-20 (NASB)  “But Joseph said to them, “Do not be afraid, for am I in God’s place?   “As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive.”  Bev Robinson

May 12, 2015.   May you be found guilty of aligning yourself with Me.  Don’t be accused of doing questionable or wrong things.  Instead be accused of doing things right and with excellence.  Though you are human, you have the same privileges and freedoms to move about as I do.  Do not act lawlessly. Instead let your behavior become fitting for a priest and king.  Associate yourself with faithful believers who express themselves righteously and faithfully. You’ve been sanctified for such a time as this.  Act righteously.
1 Corinthians 15:34 (MSG)  “Think straight. Awaken to the holiness of life.  No more playing fast and loose with resurrection facts.  Ignorance of God is a luxury you can’t afford in times like these.  Aren’t you embarrassed that you’ve let this kind of thing go on as long as you have?”   Kevin Robinson


May 11, 2015.   You will see the face of the Lord.  While this is true for you, there are those around you who may never see His face here on earth.  God is calling you to intercede for them.  The Lord Himself is righteous.  He imparts His righteousness to you.  His desire is that your righteousness, from Him, will gain for you and all other believers access to see His face here on earth as well as in Heaven.  He will place a desire within you to live justly and uprightly in order that you may see Him holy and altogether righteous.  You will see His face in Heaven for sure, but some will see Him here on earth.
Psalm 11:7 (NIV)  “For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.”  Ras Robinson

May 11, 2015.   Correction has been available for you through the years.  Sometimes you received it and sometimes you didn’t.  As you became older and wiser you saw its importance.  Others can see things that hinder your spiritual growth that you cannot see.  You began to realize this and thus began to mostly appreciate correction, especially if it was done in love.  Don’t stop now.  Continue to receive.  Continue to pass it on to others who also appreciate growing in My ways.  You receive and appreciate correction in love.  Pass it on in love.
Proverbs 9:8-9 (NLT)  “So don’t bother correcting mockers; they will only hate you.  But correct the wise, and they will love you.Instruct the wise, and they will be even wiser.  Teach the righteous, and they will learn even more.”  Bev Robinson

May 11, 2015.   Be careful not to get wrapped up with your own desires and cares, so much so, that you cannot hear or see the needs of others.  Too often, you have found yourself getting stressed about minuscule matters.  Step back from your personal matters and see what the big picture is all about.  Look for what I am doing.  Listen attentively to the world around you without getting overwhelmed.  Waiting is often a struggle for you.  Shift your attention toward others and watch Me take care of your own needs.
1 John 4:7-8 (KJV)   “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.”   Kevin Robinson


May 9, 2015.   Steady hands are the desired mode.  Unless you have a medical condition to the contrary, steady hands are a reflection of a steady heart and mind at peace.  At other times, your hands may be heavy because of fatigue or sustained physical strain.  Unsteady hands can reflect fear or dread as well.  Aaron and Hur supported Moses’ heavy hands so he could last the day until sun set.  Could you be an Aaron or Hur to your pastor or other leader so they can reach their goal?
Exodus 17:12 (NASB)  “But Moses’ hands were heavy.  Then they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it; and Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side and one on the other.  Thus his hands were steady until the sun set.”  Ras Robinson

May 9, 2015.   Plentiful blessings are waiting.  Right now it doesn’t feel that way.  You know about some things that have happened.  You suspected something, but you weren’t sure.  You don’t see how blessings will result from this.  Nevertheless they will.  So what do you do now?  What do you do in the meantime?  You have a choice.  You can fret and worry or you can choose to be thankful.  Thankfulness isn’t a Polyanna way of thinking.  It is keeping your mind on Me, knowing I will work all things together for good.
Romans 8:27-28 (NASB)  “and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.  And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”  Bev Robinson

May 9, 2015.   You are receiving blessings you have yearned after for a long time.  It is from My storehouse that you are receiving beneficial blessings.  You have been courageous from the beginning, making statements which have caused many to scratch their heads in disbelief.  Continue proclaiming what you know as truth.  You are in good company.  Elijah, David, Isaiah, Paul, John, and others, penned and spoke precisely what they had heard and seen.  You’re an amplifier for My sake and you always will be.  You’re bold as a lion.  Keep roaring!
Ephesians 6:19 (NLT)  “And pray for me, too.  Ask God to give me the right words so I can boldly explain God’s mysterious plan that the Good News is for Jews and Gentiles alike.”  Kevin Robinson


May 8, 2015.   Be gracious and kind anyway.  Sometimes you mess up, right?  On any day it can happen that you get so full of yourself that you forget your mission.  Your mission is to issue forth God’s grace in your speech in such a way that the best in others is seen.  Not only that, but you are to build up those close to you, not cut them out.  There is no room for harshness or judging.  If you have slipped today, there is still time to reconcile through asking and granting forgiveness.
Colossians 4:6 (MSG)  “Be gracious in your speech.  The goal is to bring out the best in others in a conversation, not put them down, not cut them out.”  Ras Robinson

May 8, 2015.   This is a wake-up call.  You have watched it coming for a long time, but now it has reached the boiling over point.  Right at this moment you don’t know which way to turn.  I have your back and I will show you the right path to take.  It will take some extreme action from this point on.  That is unless things change.  But now it isn’t up to you.  I will send you someone to help at each turn.  Don’t take matters into your own hands.  Trust Me.
Proverbs 3:5-7 (ESV)  “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.   Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil.”   Bev Robinson

May 8, 2015.   Just as the Sun is always up and shining brightly, so too is the Son of God.  Throughout the Earth it is high noon somewhere.  The Sun and Son are shining brightly and giving illumination to things which are unseen.  Prayers are going toward the heavens at all times throughout the day from east to west continually without failure.  Join in with your brothers and sisters worldwide, interceding with them for My will to be accomplished and fulfilled.  Be brilliant for one another.  Have intensity to radiate My faithfulness.
Proverbs 4:18 (NLT)  “The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,which shines ever brighter until the full light of day.”   Kevin Robinson


May 7, 2015.   Gather up the pieces.  You have enjoyed many blessings in your life. But now it seems you are living on leftovers, so nothing is wasted.  But the Lord is telling you to pick up these pieces that are left.  He is telling you to be obedient and not throw away the pieces of your life that are left over from the good old days of yesterday.  Do what seems unnatural to you and save what is left.  Put all you have into the opportunities He has provided.  Fear not, believe only.
John 6:12-13 (NLT)  “After everyone was full, Jesus told his disciples, “Now gather the leftovers, so that nothing is wasted.  So they picked up the pieces and filled twelve baskets with scraps left by the people who had eaten from the five barley loaves.”   Ras Robinson

May 7, 2015.   Your needs have often been overlooked.  You’re not being neglected.  But you sometimes feel inadequate in expressing needs.  When you do, you often feel misunderstood or someone tries to fix the problem.  You don’t want someone fixing you or the problem.  You just want someone to listen.  Beloved, I am the best listener you will ever find. I don’t overreact or under react.  Tell Me.  Then you can listen to Me.  I will tell you if there is anything you need to do.  Tell me, then leave it with Me and let Me fix you or the problem.
Psalm 119:15-16 (ESV)  “I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways.   I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget your word.”   Bev Robinson

May 7, 2015.  Your mind is an amazing creation.  Within it are immeasurable depths of knowledge, understanding and awareness.  You have My mind and all the capacities pertaining to it.  With My guidance you are able to comprehend indescribable secrets hidden from the wise.  Fix your gaze completely onto My face and seek me wholeheartedly.  Focus your attention on Me and not on chasing rabbits down a bunny trail.  It is easy to become distracted and place your devotion anywhere but on Me.  Concentrate on making Me your single-minded goal.  Give undivided dedication to My ways.
Isaiah 26:3 (MSG)  “People with their minds set on you, you keep completely whole, steady on their feet, because they keep at it and don’t quit.”   Kevin Robinson


May 6, 2015.   Do not be afraid, God sticks close and protects you as a mother her child and a father his family.  He has provided a blood covenant to fight your battles and He defends and covers you.  He is a shield that stops all arrows of the devil and from those controlled by him.  Don’t ever doubt God’s complete devotion to what is good for you.  Blessings and rewards of His great love flow to you.  That same love of His for you also drives away all fear from your life.
Genesis 15:1 (NIV)  “… Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward.” Ras Robinson

May 6, 2015.   There is a knotty problem which you are working through.  I AM aware of this.  My word to you is to not give up.  I know it this is frustrating, and it seems to keep popping up to the surface when least expected, demanding to be handled immediately.  Don’t let this urgency rule you.  Handle it in the right time.  Seek Me for wisdom, before rushing ahead.  You don’t want to go down the wrong road, finding out after spending a lot of time that you should have gone another way.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 (MSG)  “There’s an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth:”  Bev Robinson

May 6, 2015.   Keep yourself away from tempting and alluring situations, especially in regard to counseling. Satan is crafty when it comes to things which appeal to your flesh.  Ask for and use My wisdom when dealing with the opposite sex.  Though your intentions are honorable, Satan is very cunning and deceptive.  When giving guidance, do not be physically alone with a different gender.  Know ahead of time that temptation is real.  Be accountable and pursue integrity at all times.  Don’t be secretive.  You and I both know what can happen in a moment.
Proverbs 10:9 (NLT)  “People with integrity walk safely, but those who follow crooked paths will be exposed.”  Kevin Robinson


May 5, 2015.   Clean slate.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful to forgive and restore all?  A dirty slate of unforgiveness is one with unwanted marks and scratches from overuse.  Many times the need for forgiving and of granting forgiveness gets lost in revenge and pay back.  Don’t be one who insists on bringing up already forgiven offenses.  Refuse to interpret someone’s asking forgiveness as an opportunity to bring up past sins and offenses.  That request for forgiveness in not a weakening of the asker.  Rejoice that an olive branch has been offered. Be like God and clean the slate.
Psalm 19:13 (MSG)   Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh! Keep me from stupid sins, from thinking I can take over your work; then I can start this day sun-washed, scrubbed clean of the grime of sin.   Ras Robinson

May 5, 2015.   An attack is headed toward your finances.  Your enemy the devil hates it that you give to causes that I have ordained.  Be sure you are tithing and giving.  The tithe belongs to Me, not because I need it, but because you will be blessed if you do it.  Test Me with your tithing and giving.  See if I will not open the windows of heaven and pour out blessings upon you that you cannot contain.  This attack on you will not work, because of the many ways you have given.
Malachi 3:10 (NKJV)   “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,”  Says the LORD of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.”  Bev Robinson

May 5, 2015.   You often weigh the risk/reward process concerning many things.  You evaluate what is in it for you.  You try your best to keep your emotions apart from the results, yet you can be affected by the smallest thing which interferes with the process.  What will it take to convince you that My ways will lead you to areas you have only been able to hope for and dream of?  You want real joy and peace.  Right?  Follow Me at all costs.  I have blessings ahead for you when you trust Me.
Luke 9:23 (NASB)   “And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me.”   Kevin Robinson


May 4, 2015.   Never give up.  You are sorely discouraged.  God has revealed why.  You have not been able to function well.  Circumstances have resulted in your being prevented from some important duties.  This is a difficult pill to swallow.  Giving up has become an attractive option.  But to do so would be akin to placing a tight tourniquet on the life blood.  You would risk significant failure.  The Lord says, “Don’t give up or give in to circumstances beyond your control.  Submit, get back in the game and win the race.”  Follow Me closely.
2 Corinthians 4:1 (NLT)   “Therefore, since God in his mercy has given us this new way, we never give up.”   Ras Robinson

May 4, 2015.   Something causes you to feel uncared for.  Don’t fall into the pit of self-pity.  That is a hard pit to crawl out of.  List the things in your life that are going well.  Right now they are hard to think of but nevertheless do it.  You will then see as you have not seen before.  Your focus has become myopic.  Focus on the good and the good to come, not the unjust before you.  Keep your mind from thinking what is not and concentrate on what is and what will come.
Hebrews 12:2 (NKJV)   “looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”  Bev Robinson

May 4, 2015.   People long to be understood even as you do.  Instead of demoralizing individuals for their inability to comprehend an issue or assuming they know what to do next in sequence, try putting yourself in their shoes.  How would you like to be treated?  Do you appreciate kindness and patience when you’re in a difficult situation?  Be known as one who demonstrates gentleness when things become challenging.  Exhibit love, My love.  You already know what to do; you just need to do it.  Live a lifestyle of righteousness toward others.
Luke 6:31 (NLT)   “Do to others as you would like them to do to you.”  Kevin Robinson


May 2, 2015.   Family was the first institution created and blessed by God.  He makes sure the family knows the importance of His word.  God intends His word to be the greatest treasure a family can have.  He sees parents taking responsibility for teaching and training one another and especially their offspring.  The family helps one another know the will of God as well as His commandments.   Parents teach their children to respect, worship and submit to God without fear of Him, but in their hearts to respect Him in reverence.
Proverbs 2:1,10 (NASB77)  “My son, if you will receive my sayings, and treasure my commandments within you, then you will discern the fear of the LORD, and discover the knowledge of God.”   Ras Robinson

May 2, 2015.   A challenge is building.  It has been growing below the surface for a while, but not seen clearly out in the open.  Some have seen it coming, but not many.  For some it will come as a surprise.  Don’t worry about this.  With the challenge comes a solution.  Seek Me so appropriate, timely decisions will be made.  I have solutions.  They will involve change.  I know change is not always easy.  But it’s necessary.  Stay in step with Me.  It won’t be easy, but will not be disruptive.
Psalm 37:23-24 (NASB)  “The steps of a man are established by the LORD, And He delights in his way. When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, Because the LORD is the One who holds his hand.”   Bev Robinson

May 2, 2015.   Satan would have you believe that you are the only one who has ever done something as dastardly as you have.  The truth is, you have been pardoned by Me of all your shortcomings.  You cannot conjure up some sort of plan to undo what sin has been committed.  What’s done is done.  You can however receive healing and restoration through the power of your tongue.  It may sound simple, but in confession of your faults to others, you can walk in health, healing, and wholeness.  Humble yourself before trustworthy believers.
James 5:16 (NLT)  “Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.”   Kevin Robinson


May 1, 2015.  Your hunger and thirst for My word is commendable.  Your ears itch to hear one more thing from Me.  Only a parent can understand how pleased I AM that you long for Me.  My heart palpitates at the thought of you and your name is before Me.  You generate with Me accelerated favor and grace towards you.  Everything about you and all that concerns your future is precious and worthy of my blessings.  With this then, I count you as chosen, special and worthy of my flow of blessings.  Stand tall.
Proverbs 1:33 (NASB)  “But he who listens to me shall live securely and will be at ease from the dread of evil.”  Ras Robinson

May 1, 2015.   I have blessings stored up for you such that, if you could see them, you would be astounded.  You can’t see them with natural eyes.  You have to see them witheyes of faith.  You have received encouragement from those whom I have established as specific counsel.  I know it seems now like a hard course to follow.  But Beloved, you can do this.  Once you make up your mind you will see it is not as hard as you think.  I AM with you.  Set your face like flint.
Isaiah 50:7 (AMP)  “For the Lord God helps Me; therefore have I not been ashamed or confounded. Therefore have I set My face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be put to shame.”   Bev Robinson

May 1, 2015.   Not many things delight you more than seeing someone who is not inhibited by their surroundings.  You have grown accustomed to seeing children laugh, run, and play and their seeming lack of care with the world.  You can reminisce of times in your past when you would have probably joined in. Much like you, I delight in seeing you express joy before Me.  What is holding you back from displaying demonstrative expressions of excitement?  Let self-consciousness fall by the wayside.  Refuse to be quiet and reserved. Rejoice.
Luke 10:21 (KJV)  “In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.”   Kevin Robinson
