November 30, 2013. You are in a dark time and a rough spot. The reality is that you have brought some of this on yourself. The devil has played his part. The world is not your friend. The enemy is flexing his muscles. He often overplays his hand and he has done it again. God’s word is more powerful than anything the devil has in his arsenal. He says He has turned your mourning into dancing. Do it. He has removed your sackcloth and exchanged it for a cloak of gladness. Sing it. Give Him thanks.
Psalm 30:11-12 (NASB) “You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness, that my soul may sing praise to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to you forever. Ras Robinson
November 30, 2013. Be careful of pride . It is just a little thing right now, but can grow into something that will be detrimental to what you want and what others are hoping for. It is very sneaky. It often masquerades itself as something good, much like anointing. There is a difference, a big difference. Your calling is to remain humble in the midst of being right. Be open to others also being right and knowing what to do. Humility and anointing both make a team that is hard to be overcome.
Romans 12:3 (NASB) “For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.” Bev Robinson
November 29, 2013. I have a stone from Shiloh, Israel from our 2008 tour of Israel. Quantum physics teaches us that a stone (or most any solid object) records all sounds made near it. My stone recorded all the worship and messages led by Joshua when Shiloh was Israel’s gathering place. A forensic geologist is studying the possibility that the Mayans once visited our state of Georgia. Quantum physics could shorten his physical search. Learning of this, I have sought to be more careful of what I say and where I say it.
Luke 19:39-40 (NASB) “Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Him, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” But Jesus answered, “I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!” Ras Robinson
November 29, 2013. There is a special vantage point from which you can see. No one else can see like you can right now because from where you are, prayers can be voiced that get to the root of what is going on. The parties involved can’t see. The ones they relate to can’t see. But you can see. I am revealing things to you that no one else can see. I am counting on you to pray the prayers no one else can pray. Don’t fail this opportunity.
Ephesians 6:18 (NIV) “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.” Bev Robinson
November 28, 2013. Like a mother eagle, I feed and protect you while you are yet a babe. I even push you out of My nest that you may learn to fly on your own wings. Do not mistake this for rejection or punishment. In the scary times you have faced, when you are not sure you would survive, I did not leave you. I loved you enough to turn your suffering and fears into strength and stamina. Through all this you learn to trust Me, for I alone am fully able to save and protect you.
Psalm 28:7 (NASB) “The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him.” Ras Robinson
November 28, 2013. Turn the tables on unhappiness. You can do this, precious one. I know you don’t want to, but do it anyway. Take your thoughts captive to thankfulness. Not just for one day. Instead let this be the first day of a lifestyle change. Tell Me the things about which you are disappointed and hurt, then turn the tables onto that for which you are thankful. Don’t stop thinking about the matter until you do this. King David did and this is one of the reasons he is a man after My heart.
Acts 13:22 (NLT) “But God removed Saul and replaced him with David, a man about whom God said, ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart. He will do everything I want him to do.’ ” Bev Robinson
November 27, 2013. Today, My message to you is – repent and change the way you think. My desire for you is that you would prosper and always be in good health and maximize the blessings I give. Do not become sluggish like the snail and move at its pace. Instead think of being swift as the cheetah, crafty as the squirrel and strong as an ox. Consider the ant and how diligently it works while never surrendering. I am calling you to a higher level of performance.
Proverbs 6:6-8 (KJV) “Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.Ras Robinson
November 27, 2013. It’s time to think ahead, not to plan on your own, but to seek what I have ahead. If you don’t do some planning, something important will be missed. There is a specific window of time when everything will be available to do what I have in mind. If that window is missed, you will have to wait a very long time for it to come around again. Things will have changed by then.
Galatians 6:9 (AMP) “And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint.” Bev Robinson
November 26, 2013. Do you sense a curse has landed on you or your family? Rest assured that most people feel this way at times, even those who are Christians. That feeling of being accursed divides ones heart and robs the peace of mind intended by God. What to do? In teaching, sharing and just counseling, I encourage such a one to pray and see if the Holy Spirit would reveal any “cause” that exists to allow the curse. It is best to repent and ask forgiveness. Once this is done, the curse must then go.
Proverbs 26:2 (NASB) “Like a sparrow in its flitting, like a swallow in its flying, So a curse without cause does not alight.”Ras Robinson
November 26, 2013. Making excuses is causing you to feel guilty. This is good. If you didn’t feel guilt that would mean you have a hardened heart. The real question is: have I called you to do what is making you feel guilty? Inquire of Me to be sure. If you are sure then do what I say. This will cause you to walk in peace. If it is just something you think you ought to do, then this is false guilt. Satan loves to make you feel that kind of guilt.
Proverbs 21:29 (AMP) “A wicked man puts on the bold, unfeeling face [of guilt], but as for the upright, he considers, directs, and establishes his way [with the confidence of integrity].” Bev Robinson
November 25, 2013. Follow close after Me. Reap the great harvest. What you have so far is not bad. I have something better for you. You will find My directions simple and easy to follow. But you need to listen closely and obey My voice both immediately and completely. I have come to bless you, not to frustrate or curse you. Results will immediately begin to manifest. Do not stop listening. Tune your ears as if you had ear buds to hear the finest music. Focus on the message given. Hear and obey.
John 21:5-6 (NASB) “So Jesus said to them, ‘Children, you do not have any fish, do you?’ They answered Him, ‘No.’ And He said to them, ‘Cast the net on the right-hand side of the boat and you will find a catch.’ So they cast, and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish.”Ras Robinson
November 25, 2013. A time of rest is coming. You have been going at a very brisk pace. There is nothing wrong with what you have been doing because much has been accomplished. At this particular time much needs to be accomplished but begin thinking rest and at the right time enter into rest. You will know when it comes because events will come to a sudden slow down. That will be your sign. Be prepared and watch for the time. Take to rest as seriously as you have taken to work.
Psalms 16:8-9 (NLT) “I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me. No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice. My body rests in safety.” Bev Robinson
November 23, 2013. You wish in some ways you could re-live your childhood. You would like another chance to be raised by your father and mother. Now that you are older, you see so many opportunities missed to be a loving and obedient child. Your parents were full of wisdom and knowledge ready for harvesting. The same is true for your children and grandchildren. Opportunities were missed to impart to them. Your Father says, “Repent and commit to start now and allow Holy Spirit to lead the way. It is not too late!”
Proverbs 1:8-9 (NASB) “Hear, my son, your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching; indeed, they are a graceful wreath to your head And ornaments about your neck.” Ras Robinson
November 23, 2013. Now is the time to begin seriously working on what needs to be done. You don’t want to wait until the last minute or what you want to do will have a greater chance of turning out slipshod. You don’t want to spend a lot of time on something and have it turn out badly. You are thinking it needs to be done perfectly. Forget that. This is what has hung you up. Let me infuse your mind and emotions with ideas of how to get this done with excellence.
Psalms 20:4 (AMP) “May He grant you according to your heart’s desire and fulfill all your plans.” Bev Robinson
November 23, 2013. The Father says today that there shall be delay no longer! The Father says today that I have stamped My image upon you this day. The enemy sought to conform you to his likeness but what I accomplished upon the tree dispels every disfigurement and distortion of sin upon your character. As I said in My word says the Father you are not a debtor to sin therefore sin shall not have dominion over you. Do not despise yourself because of failure but rejoice in My redemptive visitation upon you even this day. You are not a debtor to sin but an entitled child of heaven’s best. I am producing Myself in you and causing you both to know and to reflect My glory.
My glory in you is the catalyst of My character. As you see Me so shall you be like Me. You will be like Me in the world and reflect My image to the hopeless and forlorn who do not realize that I am their advocate and their savior. I am not searching for a reason not to bless or redeem or restore says the Father. My eye searches the earth to show Myself mighty in behalf of those who cry out to Me. I will not leave you without answers. I will not abandon you at the moment of your need. I will manifest My glory and in that moment your miracle will come and in the miracle will be the inward transformation that conforms you to My image!
November 22, 2013. War is declared on Christians worldwide. Even in Washington, D.C., the government is striking down most, if not all, references to God and the Scriptures. Who knew this would or could ever happen in our nation founded on biblical principles? God is calling Christian soldiers to come forward and fight in God’s army. We will share in the bounty of winning. It is not our army but God’s. It is not our battle but His. Victory is certain if we as soldiers follow orders and fight hard to the end. All must serve, no exemptions.
2 Timothy 2:3-6 (KJV) “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.” Ras Robinson
November 22, 2013. The universe began and operates by My authority. I’ve given you authorities since before you were born. I put them there to teach you obedience. First, I gave you parents, then teachers and now, bosses, family and leaders in your church. Don’t allow yourself to be defiant. And don’t try and find exceptions, working around them. These are My authorities who represent Me. Jesus is your example. He obeyed regardless of what faced him. You will obey and overcome as He did. You are destined to walk in great authority.
Romans 13:1-3 (NLT) “Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you.”Bev Robinson
November 21, 2013. I have heard your heart of thanksgiving for things I have done for you. That brings Me great pleasure, for indeed you are blessed as you go out and blessed as you come in. Yes, there have been troubles facing you, but you have received again and again My outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Having done so, I have put you in the overcomer position beside Me. Resist the urge to live by your fleshly temptations and urges. The world and the devil must be resisted. Lean on Me and win.
Psalm 54:7 (NIV) “For he has delivered me from all my troubles, and my eyes have looked in triumph on my foes.” Ras Robinson
November 21, 2013. My purpose of coming to earth was to save you. It was not a onetime event and then I leave you on your own to handle life. I am present with you now, continuing to save you. The best thing for you, precious one, is to turn to Me and walk with Me before you get into the thick of things that pull you down. I will be with you for the rest of your days. I will never leave you on your own. I am always there for you.
Hebrews 13:6 (ESV) “So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” Bev Robinson
November 20, 2013. Recalling all the places you have been, the people you have touched with the gospel ministry, you almost consider it like a dream. Let your lips, eyes and countenance continually tell of your great God. Where would you be without the Lord? It is so good that you think everyone has what you have. This is not so. You are a highly favored one. Surely you know this. My peace is yours. You asked “Can a nation be changed by its children?” Now you know for sure that it can! Do what you do in peace.
Isaiah 54:10 (NIV) “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.” Ras Robinson
November 20, 2013. Now is the time to get things done that need to be done. I have given you an expedient window of time to get this done. Don’t squander time or energy. Apply yourself. Temptations will come to get you off course. Don’t give them thought at all. Keep your head down and work the plan. Don’t go to the right or the left. Stay with the task at hand. You will see that I lay it out before you so that you may work efficiently. In the end it’s good.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NIV) “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:” Bev Robinson
November 19, 2013. You are remembering the disasters, sufferings and great loses of every kind especially since 2001. In that same year FCM began publishing “What the Lord Is Saying Today” on January 6. FCM began in April rescuing the poorest of the poor children from garbage dumps, under bridges and on open streets in the Philippines. In all the disasters of recent years in the Philippines — Iligan City, Cagayan de Oro, Lingig, Bohol, Calbayog, Tubod/Baroy — none of our kids have been lost. 3,000 Americans were killed instantly by suicide pilots of passenger airplanes. Yesterday violent tornados destroyed part of the mid-West cities in America. Cry out to the Lord for mercy “God help us all!”
Psalm 119:50 (NIV) “My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.” Ras Robinson
November 19, 2013. Right now no one knows what you’re thinking. Believe Me you want to keep it this way. You don’t want to let these and other thoughts like them turn into actions. It is best for all that these ideas not bear fruit and if you entertain them they surely will. Don’t bury them either. This too is not good. It is detrimental to your good health. Get this all out in the air, but just between you and Me. I know this hurts, but depend on Me to change hearts.
Proverbs 3:5-8 (NKJV) “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones.” Bev Robinson
November 16, 2013. Remember the good. Dwell on it and pray. I will hear your prayers and I will answer. Keep your mind focused on the positive revelation that this world is not your home. You are only passing through this world on your way to a better land I call Heaven. A place has been prepared for you. There are no tears allowed. Only the redeemed by the blood of Jesus will be there. The time you have left on this earth is but a preparation for that time and place that has no end.
John 14:2-3 (MSG) “There is plenty of room for you in my Father’s home. If that weren’t so, would I have told you that I’m on my way to get a room ready for you? And if I’m on my way to get your room ready, I’ll come back and get you so you can live where I live.” Ras Robinson
November 16, 2013. There are some underlying things that have you bothered. You aren’t sure exactly what is happening in a particular area, but you don’t feel good about it. Don’t let your mind fall into suspicion, and don’t go digging around. Fretting won’t make it any better, but fretting will make you a little worse. Think the best and believe the best. I am protecting all in ways you don’t know. Trust Me and lay it all at the foot of the cross. I am in the process of making this right.
Psalms 37:1-3 (NASB) “Do not fret because of evildoers, be not envious toward wrongdoers. For they will wither quickly like the grass and fade like the green herb. Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.” Bev Robinson
November 15, 2013. You are free! Christ has met the conditions of the Law on your behalf and has set you free to live as a free person. Something inside at times tries to cry out for the law and its requirements. The Holy Spirit is prompting you to live the “free unto God life.” You have actually been doing pretty well. But there are those twinges of guilt, telling you that you must have done something wrong. When the Holy Spirit sets you free, you are free indeed. Don’t miss out. Embrace the freedom.
Acts 15:1 (NASB) “Some men came down from Judea and began teaching the brethren, “Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved.” James 2:10 (NLT) “For the person who keeps all of the laws except one is as guilty as a person who has broken all of God’s laws.” Ras Robinson
November 15, 2913. Rest is on its way. Don’t give in now. The end is just around the corner. I have seen you through when you thought there was no way it could happen. You chose to trust in Me rather than give in to your doubts. This is good. I showed you I would never leave you. You knew it in the depth of your bones. When the temptation came and you wondered what in the world am I doing, you chose to trust Me. Now rest is on its way.
Hebrews 4:9-10 (NASB) “So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His.” Bev Robinson
November 14, 2013. The anointing you have received is from God. Your anointing has come with the Holy Spirit and power. Jesus received the same anointing to do two things. This is also true for you. You need now to go about doing good and healing all who are oppressed by the devil because God is with you. Corruption has raised its head in defiance to God. Government is steadfastly writing God out of ceremonies, schools and civil groups. I am still looking for that ONE who will stand and fight with me.
Acts 10:38 (NASB) “You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.” Ras Robinson
November 14, 2013. The planning and much of the work has been done. Don’t get under the challenges. Yes, there is still work to do but you are on the track and soon it will be accomplished. Just stay in the flow. You are under authority, and filled with My Spirit. It will all come about as you have prayed, planned, assigned and worked. You will get some rest afterward and feel a tremendous blessing of accomplishment. I said in Scripture, some plant and some water, but it is I who give the increase.
1 Corinthians 3:7-9 (NLT) “It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work. For we are both God’s workers. And you are God’s field. You are God’s building.”Bev Robinson
November 13, 2013. Keep on telling stories and testimonies of your personal experiences with God. Such stories stir up the hearts of God seekers. Most people want to know of God’s love and power. A story brings the hearer in close with stories and parables that illustrate what they are seeking. The most insignificant or smallest story can penetrate deep into the heart, often leading to salvation and growth. The more stories and testimonies you tell, the closer I come. Spiritual revivals arise and are carried along with stories and testimonies. Try Me in this.
Matthew 13:1-3 (NLT) “Later that same day Jesus left the house and sat beside the lake. A large crowd soon gathered around him, so he got into a boat. Then he sat there and taught as the people stood on the shore. He told many stories in the form of parables.” Ras Robinson
November 13, 2013. Don’t be caught unaware in an upcoming event. But also be on guard at all times, precious one. Satan is lying in wait. He does not forget to disrupt you at every turn of your life. So don’t you forget either. This is not to cause you to be suspicious, but to remind you that you do have an enemy, a vigilant enemy. Keep your focus on Me and the good plans I have for you, but out of the corner of your eye keep a watch on Satan.
1 Peter 5:7-8 (NLT) “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.”Bev Robinson
November 12, 2013. Battles are still being waged concerning the Sabbath. How is it to be observed? When is the best time? There are those who still prefer to observe the Sabbath just as it is written in the Law of Moses. Most Christians today do not comply. I give My believers freedom to seek Me about the best way for them to observe the Sabbath. Jesus led the way then. Now He leaves it to the heart of believers to follow Jesus within their hearts. Hear Jesus, obey Him and you will be okay.
Matthew 12:1, 6-8 (MSG) “One Sabbath, Jesus was strolling with his disciples through a field of ripe grain. Hungry, the disciples were pulling off the heads of grain and munching on them. “There is far more at stake here than religion. If you had any idea what this Scripture meant-‘I prefer a flexible heart to an inflexible ritual’-you wouldn’t be nitpicking like this. The Son of Man is no lackey to the Sabbath; he’s in charge.”Ras Robinson
November 12, 2013. When I studied quantum physics, I read of a Japanese physicist who believed that many devastating worldwide catastrophes have been averted from widespread disease because of people’s thoughts and prayers. He proved that water is affected by thoughts and words. In the super typhoon that hit the Philippines last week many thousands died. Now clean drinking water is one of the biggest needs. “Bless the water. Bless the people. Pray for millions to turn to Me for salvation of body soul and spirit. You pray. And pray for millions to pray. Prayer changes things.”
John 15:16-17 (NLT) “You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. This is my command: Love each other.” Bev Robinson
November 11, 2013. You are amazing. I knew one day you would fall and I would have to catch you. You allowed Me to stretch forth My wings and teach you more lessons on how to fly high and go far on the warm winds of My Spirit. Once you fully realize I am here for you, you are freer to fully explore the freedom of your choices and assignments from Me. Your faith tells Me you are now ready for the blessings and instructions for the next huge stage of your destiny.
Deuteronomy 32:11 (NASB) “Like an eagle that stirs up its nest, that hovers over its young, He spread His wings and caught them, He carried them on His pinions.” Ras Robinson
November 11, 2013. Stay the course. Don’t give up. You have already won in a way that cannot be seen just now. I know you are tempted, but don’t give in. Events ahead will give a glimpse of the blessings to come. They will be enough to encourage you, but not enough to show the full picture. You will still have to lean heavily on Me. You will still have to do exactly as I will lead. This whole thing will be faith building if you stay the course. You do have a choice.
Luke 18:8 (AMP) “I tell you, He will defend and protect and avenge them speedily. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [ persistence in] faith on the earth?” Bev Robinson
November 9, 2013. It is my honor and privilege to know one of God’s great men on the earth. He is 92 years old, a scientist and soul winner par excellent. He has served our government in very important scientific positions and gave of himself to gain and maintain the peace we enjoy today. He gained several university degrees. But above all that, He fell in love with Jesus so deeply that he could not but share His salvation. Untold numbers of people have been born again because of him. Thank you sir!
Proverbs 9:9-10 “Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser, Teach a righteous man and he will increase his learning. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” Ras Robinson
November 9, 2013. Don’t go by what your eyes are seeing nor what your ears are hearing. Especially don’t rush to judgment. Listen to Me very carefully . I taught My Son not to do anything unless it was something I said or showed Him. He was a success in everything He did because He obeyed. He left you an example to follow. I know it is hard because outward things evidently make so much sense. He had outward temptations and so do you. But just as I trained Him I’m training you.
Luke 2:52 (NLT) “Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people.” Bev Robinson
November 8, 2013. Someone is having a storm suddenly appearing out of nowhere. You are totally surprised. There was no warning. You know this is not the season for big storms. And yet it is about to roll over you with devastating force. Friends tell you there is no hope for you. They are afraid. You are accused and you have believed you have little to no faith for a storm like this. Remind yourself, Jesus is in your boat. He is so at peace He is sleeping. Ask Jesus to calm the storm. Believe.
Matthew 8:23-26 (NIV) “Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.”Ras Robinson
November 8, 2013. There are some events going on among some people that absolutely make no sense to you at all. Stop and pray and bless the ones involved before you make judgments. Remember the law of judgments? When you judge, judgment comes back on you worse than the judgments you make. Precious one, you don’t want this. I tell you the consequences ahead of time so you will have the information before you make wrong choices. Don’t judge the ones weak in faith, instead pray for, think kindly of and bless them.
Romans 15:1-2 (AMP) “We who are strong [in our convictions and of robust faith] ought to bear with the failings and the frailties and the tender scruples of the weak; [we ought to help carry the doubts and qualms of others] and not to please ourselves. Let each one of us make it a practice to please (make happy) his neighbor for his good and for his true welfare, to edify him [to strengthen him and build him up spiritually].” Bev Robinson
November 7, 2013. Whom are you following? Who is following you? You dare not follow Jesus incognito. The word is out anyway about your involvement with Him. There is no such thing as a secret disciple. It does not work. What works is to come out of your hiding and declare Jesus openly at every opportunity. Get in step with Him so you can say what He says and do what He does. Doing that automatically unifies you with the Trinity of God. Wow. What love and power! Those following you will be glad.
Psalm 7:7-8 (NIV) “Let the assembled peoples gather around you. Rule over them from on high; let the LORD judge the peoples. Judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, according to my integrity, O Most High.” Ras Robinson
November 7, 2013. One of the reasons you are walking in a multitude of blessings is you know where they comes from. You know I am the source, and you freely obey my ways. You freely teach others and they too walk in blessings. This causes an eternal circle of blessings which multiplies exponentially. Others do not see the source but see the results in you and others. They will soon be coming and asking why. This will be an opportunity to share about Me and My goodness. They will come primed to obey.
1 Timothy 6:18-19 (AMP) “[Charge them] to do good, to be rich in good works, to be liberal and generous of heart, ready to share [with others], In this way laying up for themselves [the riches that endure forever as] a good foundation for the future, so that they may grasp that which is life indeed.”Bev Robinson
November 6, 2013. By way of illustration it has been a joy to give a certain amount of money to my children and my grandchildren as the occasion is right. My private gifts have made a lot of people very happy. They don’t know that I did the same for others. There are many single mothers and widows in our church. It was my pleasure about two years ago to personally cook a steak dinner with all the trimmings for these ladies. I am certain that I enjoyed the evening more than they. No reward expected.
Matthew 6:1 (NIV) “Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.”Ras Robinson
November 6, 2013. I see you thinking about starting and have actually promised to start. This has been going on for quite a while. The longer you delay, the bigger the task becomes. Don’t delay any longer. The longer you wait, the more discouraged you become. That causes you to talk yourself out of it. Now is the time to start. You say you do not know where to start. Just start and the way will become evident as you go. The good news is you will be surprised how fast it goes.
Ecclesiastes 5:4 (MSG) “When you tell God you’ll do something, do it-now. God takes no pleasure in foolish gabble. Vow it, then do it.” Bev Robinson
November 5, 2013. I know you are suffering. You learn and gain much by not quitting. Times are difficult. A pastor where I attended church last Sunday illustrated an important point. He and his wife chose to discipline their children over a serious misstep they took. They were sent to their rooms in their basement. As the father walked by their room he overheard them lamenting that they might be asked to leave home. He stepped inside and assured them that they were not rejected. Rather, the disciple came from a heart of love for the children.
Hebrews 5:8 (NLT) “Even though Jesus was God’s Son, he learned obedience from the things he suffered.”Ras Robinson
November 5, 2013. Don’t think that you need to find a way out of the challenge before you. This thought has run through your mind. Dismiss it immediately. I called you to it. Yes, it is a challenge. In the long run it will be a big blessing, but you have to put your mind to it and your heart in it. Start by thinking back to when I brought it to mind and the excitement you felt. I will turn anxiety into excitement and you can complete the event in joy.
Galatians 5:14 (NASB) “For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement,” You shall love your neighbor as yourself .”Bev Robinson
November 4, 2013. You have been double-crossed by someone close to you. The hurt has been a sting and constant ache in your heart through the years. It is good that you have forgiven over and over again. You have also done well to hold no grudges. The only thing that remains after numerous effort at forgiving is to cancel in your mind as much of the memory as possible. Additionally, ask Jesus to forgive the person for you and to erase the entire memory. Together we win. Only ask and I will do it.
1 Peter 4:8 (AMP) “Above all things have intense and unfailing love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins [forgives and disregards the offenses of others].” Ras Robinson
November 4, 2013. I know you don’t remember at the front of your mind, as you live daily, everything you have read and heard, so this is a reminder. Don’t dwell on failures, mistakes or sorrows. When these thoughts come, and for sure they will, don’t let them take up residence in your mind. This is not good for your mental health and the health of your whole body. Trust Me, it isn’t just the thoughts, but such thoughts trigger many unhealthy things in your body. Precious, I love you.
Philippians 4:9 (AMP) “Practice what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and model your way of living on it, and the God of peace (of untroubled, undisturbed well-being) will be with you.”Bev Robinson
November 2, 2013. Stress is a serious enemy. You never imagined that you would be hit so hard by stress. Worry is a new development. You are concerned about many things that are out of whack. Your standards are too high for yourself and others. Occupational stress is getting the upper hand. Fretting has sprung up over your life and relationships. Now, here is the truth that sets you free. See the Lordship of Christ as the umbrella over you from the hot sun of stress. Take delight in obedience to the Lord.
Psalm 119:143 (NLT) “As pressure and stress bear down on me, I find joy in your commands.” Ras Robinson
November 2, 2013. There is longing no one knows but Me. Others don’t know you have compared yourself to them as much as I know. Listen to Me, Precious. This comparison is not good for you. You are good like you are. Don’t compare yourself with others. Compare yourself with yourself to see if you are growing in what I have told you. If you do not do what I say, you are stuck. And being stuck causes you to slide downward. I have freed you from being stuck. Obey Me and move upward.
James 1:21-22 (NASB) “Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls. But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.” Bev Robinson
November 2, 2013. It is time for less talk and a lot more action. For too long there has been put off after put off. Procrastination has gotten the better of you and frustration has hit its tipping point for persons close to you. How about being silent for a period of time in the near future? Stop and think for a moment. Has your long-winded approach been effective? Do the same old difficulties exist as they did before? Enough is enough! How about becoming proactive for a while and see if the atmosphere changes.
James 2:24 (NLT) “So you see, we are shown to be right with God by what we do, not by faith alone.” Kevin Robinson
November 1, 2013. You are blessed. Actually you are doubly blessed because your spiritual father Abraham was made to be your father by Me. This miracle guarantees your right to receive and walk in His blessings forever. That is strong, isn’t it? As you have received the blessings, you picked up an obligation to share this Good News. You became obligated as a preacher of the Gospel to deliver blessings to all who are of faith. It is not only the Jews who are blessed, but all those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. Be happy.
Galatians 3:7-9 (NASB) “Therefore, be sure that it is those who are of faith who are sons of Abraham. The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “ALL THE NATIONS WILL BE BLESSED IN YOU.” So then those who are of faith are blessed with Abraham, the believer.Ras Robinson
November 1, 2013. I speak what is good for you to hear. If you obey what I say, it benefits you more than you know. I have never forced you to obey and I will not now. My desire is that you will want to obey and then follow through from a heart of love. When you obey, your eyes will be opened to see things you have not yet seen. You will have peace and power to understand what you’ve never understood. Precious one, I love you.
1 John 2:5-6 (NLT) “But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.” Bev Robinson
November 1, 2013. Yes, those are holy angelic encounters you’ve been experiencing. They’re the ones who have been doing warfare on your behalf. I have positioned heavenly angels to protect you and keep you from serious harm and danger. Those fleeting and fast moving objects out of the corner of your eye are a brief glimpse of their presence. When you wonder if you just faced an angel, the probability is high that you did. There is no need to be afraid. I have sent them as messengers, warriors and ministers for your benefit.
Psalm 91:11 (NASB) “For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways.” Kevin Robinson
