October 31, 2013.   Showing affection has great power in Heaven and Earth.  A posture of love and devotion can be as varied as individuals made unique by Me.  I want you to pray in every place of worship.  When you pray, it pleases Me for you to lift holy hands to Me.  Your lifted holy hands symbolize that you are free before Me regarding anger and controversy with your spiritual family in church.  Pray about it.  You will find yourself growing in freedom to love, unhindered by any mood swings you might have.
1 Timothy 2:8 (NLT)  “In every place of worship, I want men to pray with holy hands lifted up to God, free from anger and controversy.”  Ras Robinson 

October 31, 2013.   There is much to be done to keep your life running smoothly, efficiently and evenly like you and I like it.  There are many challenges and also more than a few obstacles.  Don’t get bogged down at any point.  Let Me guide you and sluggishness will not happen.  Stay in close contact with Me.  Pray in the Spirit and continually ask Me for the interpretation.  I have made it simple for you.  Yes the truth is that it is not always easy but it is always simple.  Precious, listen and obey.
1 Samuel 15:22 (MSG)  “Do you think all God wants are sacrifices- empty rituals just for show?  He wants you to listen to him!  Plain listening is the thing, not staging a lavish religious production.”  Bev Robinson

October 31, 2013.   Position yourself underneath the Lordship of Me as the Prince of Peace.  Let the belligerence amongst you come to an end.  In essence, let there be a cease fire. Become the mature one in situations you are dealing with and pursue peace at all costs.  For too long there has been struggle after struggle in your personal affairs.  You have tried and tried to fix the problem yourself with little or no results.  How about letting Me handle every particular situation at hand.  Submit to Me in every single aspect.
Psalm 34:14 (NASB)  “Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it.”  Kevin Robinson 


October 30, 2013.   Have you sinned and have you brought the confession of it to the Lord for His forgiveness?  Yes, He forgave you at the moment of salvation, but what about more recent sins?  You know of sins that are destroying your inner integrity and you have not come forth to make things right before God.  The Lord says, “Surely, as day follows night, you have known My favor for a lifetime.  Keep in mind that joy of standing right with Me.  Live out your love for Me and others.  I love you.
Psalm 30:5 (NASB)  “For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning.” Ras Robinson 

October 30, 2013.   For a long time you thought you could fix what is wrong in a specific situation, because you have seen so many things get fixed.  But you didn’t know My hidden workings.  I directed many who didn’t know their obedience was a part of something being fixed.  They were just praying, listening and obediently following.  This situation is complicated, too complicated for you to know all the hidden problems and workings.  It’s best for you to let Me handle the whole thing.  If I need you, I’ll let you know.
Isaiah 48:6 (AMP)   “You have heard [these things foretold], now you see this fulfillment.  And will you not bear witness to it?  I show you specified new things from this time forth, even hidden things [kept in reserve] which you have not known.”  Bev Robinson

October 30, 2013.   Take notice of how you live, because the world around you is paying very close attention to how you move about.  Perhaps the lost world around you is cold and indifferent to the Gospel because they see you as being cold and indifferent to those you hold dear.  Does grace surround you?  How about understanding?  Do you measure yourself by the same standards by which you measure others?  Let My love abound in every single aspect of your daily living.  Be known by your love for one another.
John 13:34-35 (NLT)  “So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other.  Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.  Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” Kevin Robinson 


October 29, 2013.   Is your life supernatural?  Does your life inspire greatness in others?  Are people drawn to a godly lifestyle because they know you?  These are eternal questions of great importance.  Think about them and seek the leadership of the Holy Spirit for answers and guidance.  Let others see Jesus in you.  I have placed you on the earth as a witness and example of My resurrected life.  Great peace comes when you realize that the impossible is altogether possible in Jesus with the Holy Spirit guiding and leading.  Embrace the supernatural.
Mark 8:35-36 (NASB)   “For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?”   Ras Robinson

October 29, 2013.   Recent events have opened your eyes to several possibilities.  Some are good and others not so good.  It remains to be seen if you will take advantage of the good possibilities you saw.  Positive choices are yours to make right now.  It will take a large measure of faith and following through with works of faith.  Now is the time to do it.  Don’t hesitate to think it over.  The options are right before your eyes.  If you wait, precious one, the opportunity will dissipate right before your eyes.
2 Corinthians 6:2 (NLT)  “For God says, at just the right time, I heard you.  On the day of salvation, I helped you.”  Indeed, the “right time” is now.  Today is the day of salvation.”  Bev Robinson

October 29, 2013.   It is in your will where the battle rages.  It is where I have given you total freedom to do as you please.  Release your pride and be willing to turn over your will to doing My will instead of your own.  A threshold remains that you have been unable to cross.  Lay your guilt aside and be ready to firmly grab hold of My outstretched arms which are ready to pick you up and embrace you.  Relinquish your will over to Me and My Lordship.
Deuteronomy 11:13-14 (NASB)  “It shall come about, if you listen obediently to my commandments which I am commanding you today, to love the Lord your God and to serve Him with all your heart and all your soul, that He will give the rain for your land in its season, the early and late rain, that you may gather in your grain and your new wine and your oil.”  Kevin Robinson 


October 28, 2013.   The Holy Spirit has been lonely for you. It has been a repeated oversight on your part.  The pressure of life itself has robbed your energy.  Stress and anxiety have been your daily meal for too long.  I want you to move away from those things you consider most comfortable.  Grit your teeth and surrender your heart.  You already know the truth of what happens when Holy Spirit is convicting and leading you.  You will see enemies run away and not toward you.  This is and can be your day in the Son.
Acts 5:32 (AMP)   “And we are witnesses of these things, and the Holy Spirit is also,  Whom God has bestowed on those who obey Him.” Ras Robinson 

October 28, 2013.   Draw your thoughts together.  Rein them in.  Don’t let them gravitate toward the negative.  Many negative thoughts will continue to circle around your mind, trying to pull you away from what is good.  You don’t need that and certainly the ones around you don’t.  You can do this.  Move yourself into Me.  Allow the power of My love to transform your mind into what is good.  This is what you need and this is what those around you need.  Precious one, I am tapping you to be the leader now.
Romans 12:1-2 (NLT)   “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.  Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”  Bev Robinson

October 28, 2013.   Take time to remember where you have come from and where you are right now.  Too often, it is easy to get so caught in everyday affairs that you cannot recollect back on the places and faces that have brought you to the here and now.  To the best of your ability, reflect back on times when you could only dream of being where you are now.  If necessary, reestablish contact with some old friends and remember former glory days.  Rekindle some past relationships and cherish moments from then until now.
Isaiah 51:1 (NLT)  “Listen to me, all who hope for deliverance – all who seek the Lord! Consider the rock from which you were cut, the quarry from which you were mined.” Kevin Robinson 


October 26, 2013.   God wants you always to be the best follower of Jesus you can be.  He wants you perfect in every way.  He says to you “be ye holy as I am holy.”  He would not give that command if it were impossible for you to achieve.  He is confident that you will achieve it through receiving and following ever so closely the Lord Jesus living inside you.  Let Jesus be Jesus in you.  He is perfect in every way.  Lay aside your own claims.  You will never be sorry.
Psalm 26:2 (NASB) Examine me, O LORD, and try me; Test my mind and my heart.”  Ras Robinson 

October 26, 2013.   A new normal is currently being set by people and events.  The new normal has changed through the years and even the ages to keep up with the times.  But My normal doesn’t change.  My unchanging normal continues to apply as changes occur in the world.  My normal is full of integrity and established by truth.  I have left a record of My normal, an ancient record for all to investigate.  But myriads have left My normal for the changes around them.  Don’t you change.  Keep doing My normal.
Psalms 68:33 (AMP)  “[Sing praises] to Him Who rides upon the heavens, the ancient heavens; behold, He sends forth His voice, His mighty voice.”  Bev Robinson

October 26, 2013.   Expect something of major proportions to head your way.  Your patience has not gone unnoticed.  Neither has your steadfastness gone unseen.  I am the God of breakthroughs.  My timing is always perfect and right on time.  You have learned priceless invaluable lessons during this phase of your life that you could not have found unless you were in the situation you are in.  Keep your faith level high and know I am always working on your behalf.  Winds of change are in the heavens and are coming your way.
Genesis 15:6 (NASB)  “Then he believed in the Lord; and He reckoned it to him as righteousness.”  Kevin Robinson 


October 25, 2013.   I say unto you that I have made you to be a priest and king.  You are to rule victoriously as an overcomer so My life will be brilliant in shining from your countenance.  I have held back and concealed some things you have needed to know.  That is My glory to keep some things hidden for revelation at just the right time.  When I release these precious things to you, you are to glorify me in them.  There are days of glory coming that you never expected.  Glorify Me.
Proverbs 25:2 (AMP)  “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing, but the glory of kings is to search out a thing.”  Ras Robinson 

October 25, 2013.   Talk with Me like I am there.  Ask Me for counsel like I am there.  Seek Me for wisdom like I am there.  If you do I will communicate with you.  I will give you counsel and wisdom because I am there.  I am with you always.  I told you I would never leave you.  I meant it then and I mean it now.  You need My presence for some events which are ahead.  This will be a time of challenge, but I will equip you with favor, wisdom and peace.
Deuteronomy 31:5-6 (ESV)  “Be strong and courageous.  Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you.  He will not leave you or forsake you.”  Bev Robinson

October 25, 2013.   In elementary school you always wanted to be the first to raise your hand when you knew an answer to a question your teacher asked everyone.  As you’ve grown older, you like to know the answers and appear knowledgeable.  However, an issue remains.  Are you truly listening?  Being quick and being first isn’t always the best place to be.  Slow down and listen completely to what is going on.  Take note of all the issues.  A good step toward avoiding conflict is to become a good listener.
James 1:19 (NLT)  “Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry.”  Kevin Robinson 


October 24, 2013.   God never guarantees that you will avoid the hard times offered by the world.  When you abide in Christ and He abides in you, you have all the protection you need.  There is peace in the midst of the most severe storms.  Jesus has overcome the world for you.  You can be assured that Jesus in you is stronger than any attack or set back.  With this knowledge, you are a born overcomer.  Only have faith to believe in Him and that He is truly Lord over you and all things that you do or that concern you.
John 16:33 (NASB)  “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage;  I have overcome the world.” Ras Robinson 

October 24, 2013.   Let not your obedience be just in your heart.  I know your heart and I know you want to obey.  What I have told you is for your good, not just for My purposes.  I am faithful to you.  Now is the time for you to be faithful to Me in your actions.  I know what is best.  Dilly-dallying with My word is the same as disobedience to My word.  Yes, I am ever faithful to you.  Now you be faithful to Me in your actions, not just in your heart.
Psalms 51:10-12 (AMP)  “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right, persevering, and steadfast spirit within me.  Cast me not away from Your presence and take not Your Holy Spirit from me.  Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit.”  Bev Robinson

October 24, 2013.   Do more than just believe.  Even Satan and his minions believe My word.  It is time to put aside procrastination.  Don’t postpone another moment in your day.  Do everything within your power to move forward with what you are believing Me for.  It is going to take action on your part.  You will have to move one way or the other.  It is either denial or trust.  Your spiritual life is in the balance.  Set into motion your heart and all of its components.  Don’t let anything delay your move.
Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV)  “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”  Kevin Robinson 


October 23, 2013.   Two opposite things are going on simultaneously.  Something is dying and something is being birthed.  You have been going through a time of dying. It is like hell has made a special visit to you.  You know that cannot actually be, but you feel the heat and pain.  On the other hand, there are birth pains.  God is birthing a new day and a new way.  You cannot yet be sure that this awesome thing within you can ever come forth.  It is hard to imagine there is joy in this birth.

John 16:21 (MSG)  “When a woman gives birth, she has a hard time, there’s no getting around it.  But when the baby is born, there is joy in the birth. This new life in the world wipes out memory of the pain.”  Ras Robinson

October 23, 2013.   Events are coming that will be a complete surprise.  Do not allow yourself to become unsettled.  Keep your emotions under control and remember that I have never left you alone and I won’t leave you alone when this happens.  I will show you what to do one step at a time.  If you will keep your mind and thoughts on Me and your spirit calm, you will get through this time with peace.  Afterwards you will look back and see how calm and patient you were and will be amazed.
Galatians 5:22-23 (NASB)  “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”  Bev Robinson

October 23, 2013.   Let kindness matter.  In fact, let all the fruit of the Spirit matter.  In a world filled with greed, selfishness, hatred, corruption, war, etc., may your fruit be evident to those all around you.  As a Christian you should be a fruit bearer and a fruit inspector all the time in every season.  Unlike real fruit which only grows during a certain season, My fruit within you should grow and multiply every day of the year.  Consciously realize that people are shopping for fresh fruit daily.  Develop all My fruit.
Psalm 37:3 (NASB)   “Trust in the Lord and do good;Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.” Kevin Robinson


October 22, 2013.   Many are feeling as though the enemy of their soul has attacked.  Job felt this very strongly near the end of his ordeal between Satan and God.  Even his friends turned against him.  Their words blow a strong and steady wind to terrify you.  Many in this land of plenty are going without.  Dignity is being robbed.  There is no end to it that you can see.  You need to stir up your faith.  Reading and meditating the Scriptures pays handsome dividends.  Read slowly and often, making notes of the revelations God gives.  Trust and obey.
Job 30:15 (KJV)   “Terrors are turned upon me: they pursue my soul as the wind: and my welfare passeth away as a cloud.” Ras Robinson 

October 22, 2013.   Yes, there are repercussions.  You thought there would be, but you did what I said regardless of the way it would be received.  I know you don’t like to make waves when the waters are smooth.  You don’t even like to make waves when the waters are not smooth.  But now don’t worry about it.  I know it is hard not to worry or run it over again and again in your mind.  But the most important thing is to do what I say.  You did that.  Now be at peace.
Psalms 119:59-60 (HCSB)  “I thought about my ways and turned my steps back to Your decrees.  I hurried, not hesitating to keep Your commands.”  Bev Robinson

October 22, 2013.  Consider going the extra mile to offer up praiseworthy comments to those people who mean so much to you.  It is so easy to get caught up in the negative whirlpool with your thought patterns and words.  Too often people get little or no recognition for the small things they do on a regular basis so they get burned out and perhaps give up.  Give praise where praise is due.  Make this a habit of yours and offer up praise and thanksgiving not only to Me but to others as well.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (AMP)  “Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will].”  Kevin Robinson 


October 21, 2013.   Who are you to be offended?  You are not your own any more.  You belong to someone else because you were bought with a price.  On the cross Jesus bore your offense and His own at the same time.  Bring your offense and place it on the cross.  Ask Jesus to kill your offense.  Also ask for strength to refuse future offenses.  You need some added strength.  Ask and you shall receive.  Now that you have repented and given that offense to Jesus, My peace will fill your wounded heart.
James 4:8   “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”  Ras Robinson 

October 21, 2013.   The eyes of your mind keep drifting to the wrong places.  I’m saying to keep your mind’s eyes on your desired destination.  Too often they drift to where you missed the mark and went wrong in the journey.  Don’t rehearse over and over what you did wrong.  Think of what you did only enough time to truly repent and from then on think about what you want to do and where you want to be.  Doing this will bring success.  If it is hard to believe precious one, do it and see what happens.
Hebrews 12:2 (MSG)  “Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in.  Study how he did it.  Because he never lost sight of where he was headed-that exhilarating finish in and with God-he could put up with anything along the way: cross, shame, whatever.  And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God.”  Bev Robinson

October 21, 2013.   Be a good receiver of My grace.  You have been saved by grace.  It is My unending favor which goes with you forever throughout your life.  You have been chosen by Me to accomplish My will upon the earth.  Receive with open arms what is yours for the taking.  Operate freely with the measure of faith you have been given.  You are a co-heir with Me.  If you have been given a particular gift of the Spirit, use it wisely.  Learn to operate as one with your fellow Christians.
Romans 12:3-5 (NLT)   “Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are.  Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.  Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body.  We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.”  Kevin Robinson 


October 19, 2013.   Obedience is simple.  Just trust and obey for there is no other way.  As a young boy, I sang the lines of that song “Trust and Obey” repeatedly.  The message is powerful as I said, hummed or whistled that song.  A fountain of continuous smiles erupted from the joy in my heart.  The Lord is saying today, “I tell you the truth.  While you are smiling, I am smiling too . My joy is made full when I know you are being blessed and are about to be blessed even more.  Trust and obey.”
Isaiah 26:8 (NLT)  “LORD, we show our trust in you by obeying your laws; our heart’s desire is to glorify your name.”  Ras Robinson

October 19, 2013.   Putting off what needs to be done is like you used to do when you waited until the night before a test to cram for it.  You learned little but passed the test.  Listen to Me and for My timing.   Do not listen to the voices that come to get you off course of what needs to be fully learned.  That caused you shallowness and lack of commitment.  That was then, but this is now.  Put that behind you and commit to following Me step by step  There are important things to do.
Psalms 23:1-3 (NKJV)   “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.”  Bev Robinson

October 19, 2013.   The Lord is asking, “Have you encountered an increased level of spiritual warfare in your home like never before?”  I say to you, “Begin by anointing all the exterior doorposts of your home with anointing oil.  This is a simple but powerful action you can do personally for a hedge of protection about your home.  Much like the blood of the sacrificed lamb was sprinkled on the doorpost of the Hebrew homes before the Passover, this provides protection for your home and family when done in obedience to My instruction.”
Revelation 12:11 (NIV)  “They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” Kevin Robinson 


October 18, 2013.   Do not fall for the devil’s schemes to isolate and separate you from those you love and who love you.  Think about it.  Satan was rejected from Heaven because he rebelled from God, wanting to isolate and separate himself from God.  Satan actually rejected God by seeking to be ruler of the universe, which belongs to God alone.  Thus, Satan separated himself and sought to make his own world.  When you isolate and separate yourself, you fall headlong into Satan’s world. Turn around and reconnect with your loved ones.
Proverbs 18:1 (NASB)  “He who separates himself seeks his own desire, He quarrels against all sound wisdom.” Ras Robinson 

October 18, 2013.   All is good. Don’t entertain that something unsuspected will turn up.  You’re thinking, “but it might.”  No.  Don’t think that it might.  Keep your thoughts reigned in to thinking “all is good”  Don’t worry about events over which you have no control.  Those thoughts do your body, your health no good at all. Think on you and Me and the things we have done together in the past.  I led and you followed.  That is the stance you need to take now.  When it is all over, you will see.
Romans 8:5-6 (NASB)  “For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.  For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,”  Bev Robinson

October 18, 2013.   Take time to reflect upon where you once were and where you are now.  Look back at the journals of your mind and see how far we have come together.  Do you remember being involved in some seemingly impossible circumstances?  Perhaps it was health related or maybe had to do with financial provision.  Maybe it involved direction of some sort.  Regardless of the situation, offer up heartfelt gratitude for My sustaining grace that has helped you along.  Don’t get so caught up in more complex affairs that you cannot offer thanksgiving.
Psalm 103:2 (NLT)   “Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me.” Kevin Robinson 


October 17, 2013.  During a strong 7.2 earthquake earlier this week in the Philippines, some people rushed outside and grabbed hold of trees, holding them tight.  They found the trees to be a provision of safety and security when everything around them was shaking.  The trees are safer than man-made structures, thus providing genuine hope of avoiding injury and death.  The Scriptures teach that good trees are found by observing their good fruit.  Believers are to be bearers of good fruit.  Always be available to others who are experiencing storms or earthquakes in their lives.  Only believe.
Luke 6:43 (AMP) “For there is no good (healthy) tree that bears decayed (worthless, stale) fruit, nor on the other hand does a decayed (worthless, sickly) tree bear good fruit.”  Ras Robinson 

October 17, 2013.   I have a prayer request.  There’s a lady I’ve known forever.  She’s very sick.  On top of that, she’s being abused by those to whom she has given everything…..  Lies about her abound, and seem to come from all sides.  Just breaks my heart.  Seems there’s nothing I can do alone but maybe, if we join in and lift her up together, we can heal her.  She’s well over 230 years old, but way too young to die.  Her name is “America”…  And I love her and have always been proud of her.  Take time to say a prayer for her – even if it is a short, simple prayer like, “Lord, please heal our land.  Amen.”
Please, join me daily in this simple prayer, “Lord, please heal our land,” at 8:00 PM (in your time zone) for America and your own homeland.  Bev Robinson

October 17, 2013.   Be wary of the counterfeit.  Though your warfare is not against flesh and blood, be careful to stand against schemes and plots aimed at taking you down.  Satan is very, very crafty and always lying in wait in the shadows.  Keep your spiritual antennae up at all times, knowing he is ready to strike at any moment.  Satan’s imitation capabilities are nothing short of spectacular.  Trust Holy Spirit’s intuitive feeling deep within your innermost being.  Train your senses to lean on My genuine article of truth and righteousness.
John 10:10 (NKJV)  “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.  I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” Kevin Robinson 


October 16, 2013.   You are feeling uncertain about many things.  What was once so dependable for you has taken a turn toward being unstable.  The old practices served you well. But now is the time to turn the page.  New things are before you.  Do not be blind to them.  Do not be afraid.  I have your back.  I say unto you, “Remember from whence you have come.  Have I not been a strong defender and caretaker?  All the good you have experienced so far in life was from Me.  Be at peace!”
Psalm 16:1-2 (NLT)   “Keep me safe, O God, for I have come to you for refuge. I said to the LORD, “You are my Master! Every good thing I have comes from you.”   Ras Robinson 

October 16, 2013.   Keep going.   Don’t turn back and don’t look to the right or the left.   Stay focused and don’t give up.  Before you know it, you will reach your goal.  You will do what I have told you and what I said in the beginning. You will achieve what is deep in your heart.  You won’t be completely happy until you do all that I said. Another choice has come on the scene.  It looks good now, but there are hidden problems which will arise later.  I am giving you faith opportunities.
Philippians 3:14-15 (NIV)  “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. All of us who are mature should take such a view of things.  And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you.”  Bev Robinson

October 16, 2013.   Many people around you are somewhat in a circling state of confusion.  Their basis for truth is carried by the latest trend or wind of doctrine.  Do not get caught up in whims or notions.  Instead base your knowledge on Me and My truth.  Be careful not to be swayed by people’s opinions concerning what they believe to be the truth. Study and know for yourself from firsthand knowledge, from your own diligence and application and from what My word says.  Establish the discipline of knowing My word.
John 8:31-32 (NASB)   “So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”  Kevin Robinson 


October 15, 2013.   Are you rejoicing that the very things you worry most about are all under the Lordship of Jesus?  He is ultimately in charge, never violating the free will of His children.  The slack ones fall away or slip down into their self-made pit.  But the righteous ones rejoice in His goodness.  They know their prayers are heard and redemption is near.  Clouds, bright and dark, fill the skies at times, but the true believer and child of God knows that His righteousness and justice are His foundations just as for them.
Psalm 97:1-2 (NASB)   “The LORD reigns, let the earth rejoice; Let the many islands be glad. Clouds and thick darkness surround Him; Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.”  Ras Robinson 

October 15, 2013.   Sadness is what you feel inside. A situation has arisen that has you stymied.  You don’t know which way to turn or what to do.  There seems to be no right answer.  You need to get your mind off the problem.  Pray, being specific about what you think the needs are.  Then do the best you can to forget it. Scripture says to take your thoughts captive.  I know you won’t be forgetting this completely, but since there seems to be nothing you can do, to get your mind off the problem is wisdom.
Philippians 4:6-7 (NASB)  “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”  Bev Robinson

October 15, 2013.   You have a special quality and attribute about you.  You are like a pillar of stability and strength to many people who know you.  Utilize the gifting you have been given and direct people towards Me. You know from where your strength comes and you are not ashamed to declare My ways and means.  Stand strong in knowing who you are because many people do not know who they are. Continue to place your full reliance upon Me.  You have been given a wonderful gift, use it wisely and carefully.
Psalm 28:7 (AMP)   “The Lord is my Strength and my [impenetrable] Shield; my heart trusts in, relies on, and confidently leans on Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song will I praise Him.”  Kevin Robinson 


October 14, 2013.   Revenge is unbecoming to you.  In listening to a conversation recently, a person said, “Actually I enjoy the revenge I get to have when a person wrongs me.”  Anger in itself is not a sin.  Jesus became angry when the money-changers were in the temple.  God exemplified anger throughout the Bible.  Whereas anger in and of itself is not a sin, what you do with the anger can make it a sin.  Never use your anger as an excuse for getting even with an offender.  Be even-tempered and conciliatory.
Ephesians 4:26-27 (MSG)   “Go ahead and be angry.  You do well to be angry-but don’t use your anger as fuel for revenge.  And don’t stay angry.  Don’t go to bed angry.  Don’t give the Devil that kind of foothold in your life.” Ras Robinson 

October 14, 2013.   Don’t be alarmed by what happened.  Let it be a warning.  It was a small shot but a big message flying across your bow.  You have been waiting to know the time when a correction needs to be made.  That was the sign.  The message is: Don’t go the way you have been going.  It’s time to reverse your course.  Don’t be alarmed, but take the turn that you have known for quite a while needs to be made.  The shot was from Me.  My child, I love you.
Hebrews 12:8 (AMP)   “Now if you are exempt from correction and left without discipline in which all [of God’s children] share, then you are illegitimate offspring and not true sons [at all].”  Bev Robinson

October 14, 2013.   Has your lifestyle become too predictable?  Are your steps easy for someone else to repeat?  If so, consider this, Satan is all too familiar with how you move.  Though he is not omniscient or omnipresent, he is watching all the ways you move.  Consider changing your routines in how you perform certain tasks.  Make Satan’s task more difficult.  If you are likely to move a certain way, alter your course.  Be wise with the way you move.  Carefully think through the actions you make and listen carefully for My voice.
John 5:30 (NASB)   “I can do nothing on My own initiative.  As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.”  Kevin Robinson 


October 12, 2013.   Be hungry and thirsty.  Eat and drink each day.  So is the stage set for a healthy life.  Lose the hunger and thirst and you will surely die.  First the natural and then the spiritual.  You can have everything from God.  But the means for having His bounty in every area of your life is to be continually hungry and thirsty after Him.  Those who seek Him shall find Him with open eyes.  One day you will blink and there He will be, laden down with the bounty of your inheritance.
Philippians 3:15 (MSG)  “So let’s keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us.  If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision-you’ll see it yet!”  Ras Robinson 

October 12, 2013.   The knotty problem before you is not as bad as it appears.  There is a simple solution.  The knottiness is there because there has been a time of problem built on top of problem for a while and the end and the beginning are alike.  Don’t let yourself be tied up in worry about the knotty problem.  I will show you how to resolve this step by step.  Keep trusting Me and don’t fix your mind on the problem.  Give it to Me.  Your enemy Satan wants you to worry.
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

October 12, 2013.   Make a point in your life right now to learn discretion.  It is never too late to work on keeping your lips and mouth tightly sealed.  Just because you know something doesn’t mean you can take liberty in disclosing it in its entirety.  Ask Me for help.  Allow Holy Spirit to assist you in making changes in the way you handle delicate matters.  Remember, I sent Him as a helper for you.  Lean on His strengths during your weaknesses.  Place your complete reliance upon His direction for you.
Psalm 141:3 (NLT)  “Take control of what I say, O Lord, and guard my lips.”  Kevin Robinson


October 11, 2013.   Have you experienced the joy of delivering your new born child?  If not a child, it may be the joy of finishing, or birthing, a major project.  Pregnancy seems to last forever.  The pain of delivery seems unbearable and yet joy fills the air.  But the joy can fade mysteriously if the mother experiences postpartum depression.  Everything suddenly turns somber and blue.  Learn all you can about your condition.  Rest and good food helps.  Trust a loved one with your feelings and thoughts.  One can experience the same emotions over a well finished project.  Pray to an overcoming God Who understands.
John 16:20 (MSG)  “Then fix this firmly in your minds: You’re going to be in deep mourning while the godless world throws a party. You’ll be sad, very sad, but your sadness will develop into gladness.”  Ras Robinson 

October 11, 2013.   You know what you want for your family.  But have you stopped and asked Me what I want for them?  This would be a good thing to do.  It would save you much concern.  Seek Me for your life, but also seek Me for their lives.  Keep an open mind to Me and My will.  If you seek you will find, but if you think you already know be sure it is according to the Spirit and not according to the flesh.  I have better plans than you can imagine.
Jeremiah 29:11-12 (AMP)  “For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.  Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you.” Bev Robinson

October 11, 2013.   Conforming to rules and measuring up to specific standards is often easier said than done.  However, as a believer in Me, it is critical for you to abide by the guidelines established by Me.  Though it may be extremely difficult to uphold, My desire is for you to walk in love at all times toward all people.  Regardless of things said or done, I want you to exhibit Me at all times.  You will answer to My Father for all the things you’ve said, carefully consider your responses.
Matthew 12:36-37 (NLT)  “And I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak. The words you say will either acquit you or condemn you.” 


October 9, 2013.   Who will win the raging war of words, guns and hunger?  These are perilous times, near the end of time.  The Day of the Lord has not yet come but it is near.  The Lord says, “Repent and pray.  Intercede for your people, your neighbors and the nations.  Who can I count on to stand in the gap in these troubled times?  I tell you I am still looking for those who will courageously stand beside Me in battle.  Your prayers and intercessions are like throwing a can of gasoline on a fire.
Psalm 9:19 (AMP)  “Arise, O Lord! Let not man prevail; let the nations be judged before You.” Ras Robinson 

October 9, 2013.   Wait until you are see that it is Me working through you and through others who are there.  It will be evident.  It will not be hidden.  Don’t minimize what is coming forth.  When you are sure, get going on what I say.  Don’t hesitate.  The confirmations will come as you move forward.  Be prepared for this project to move quickly.  These plans will work with the plans I have had for you since before you were born.  You were born to help others.  Enjoy the ride.
Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)   “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”  Bev Robinson

October 9, 2013.   Are you motivated by love?  Are there underlying meanings to what causes you to be as you are?  What is it that drives your innermost being in service toward others?  Is there some self-seeking motive behind all you do?  Only you and I know the real answers to these questions.  God is love.  And it is through love that all things were created.  Let others see and know you as one who creates an atmosphere of love.  May love always be your driving force.
1 Corinthians 13:1-3 (NASB)  “If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.  If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.  And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.” Kevin Robinson


October 8, 2013.   Your Father in Heaven wants you to live your life by prophetic mandates.  You think of commandments as those ten He gave through Moses, but Jesus has fulfilled all the commandments and the law.  In addition, He has given a simplified commandment to believers today to simply walk in love, loving our neighbors as ourselves.  To fulfill this commandment of love, we must walk in it obediently.  Love is a lifestyle and not just an emotional feeling or experience.  He gave the mandate to walk in love.  Do it.
2 John 1:6 (NASB)  “And this is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, that you should walk in it.”  Ras Robinson 

October 8, 2013.   Things are going fairly well.  You are coming out of a hole, but things are still not going as fast as you had hoped.  The temptation will come to judge the situation and others especially one who is involved.   Avoid this by keeping your thoughts focused on Me.  Don’t try and figure out what is happening.  I am working in ways that you cannot see.  In the days ahead you will see, but now is the time to completely trust Me.  Speak words of affirmation in the good you do see.
Philippians 4:9 (MSG) “ Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized.  Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.”  Bev Robinson

October 8, 2013.   In case you need a reminder, I hold all the keys to every door, lock, and obstacle imaginable.  Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the commotion of events surrounding you and you forget that I am the answer to every problem.  There is not one issue that is too big or too small for Me to overcome.  Rely on Me when you are down and out.  Turn to Me before you have reached the point of finding that everything else has or will fail.  I am the way.
John 14:6 (NLT)  “Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one can come to the Father except through me.” Kevin Robinson


October 7, 2013.   The release of grace, mercy and peace in these days of darkness can change everything.  Many are asking in these days, “What can I do in times like these?”  An atmosphere of peace is fueled by the words you chose to use.  Instead of retaliating what is negatively said and causing more disturbances, try speaking positive and up building words of grace, mercy and peace?  The Lord says, “Use the power I have given you for the good of others.  Release peace in darkness through My light shining through you.”
2 John 1:3 (NASB)  “Grace, mercy and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.”  Ras Robinson 

October 7, 2013.   I know you have a little residual dissatisfaction along with big satisfaction.  You are thoroughly satisfied with My peace in your body, soul and spirit, but you are also unsatisfied with wanting to know Me more and to do the things that are right.  This brings me pleasure because you are My precious one.  You know that to maintain your peace you need to trust  Me completely in all matters and believe I am good, always wanting the best for you.  I am always looking out for your best interests.
Hebrews 11:6 (AMP)   “But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him.  For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].”  Bev Robinson

October 7, 2013.   Become acutely aware of the needs of those around you.  Some are in dire need of specific essentials for their care and comfort.  Ask Me to enlighten your senses in supernatural ways to heighten your awareness.  Though you may not be able to fulfill their needs yourself, perhaps you can acquire the resources necessary to satisfy those needs.  It is important for you to be a part of the provision.  Every little bit of help is greatly appreciated.  Picture yourself in someone else’s position and realize how much help is needed.
Matthew 25:40 (NASB)   “The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.'”  Kevin Robinson 


October 5, 2013.   Today I told our son of how he emanates the presence and character of Jesus in the light that comes through him.  The Father says, “Tell the truth of how the light of Jesus must never be kept hidden.  When a ray of light from Jesus shines through His disciples and saints, the world around them is vacated of darkness.  The glorious light from Heaven through Jesus is shining from His presence.  The character of Jesus is suddenly on display for all to see.  Make a habit of emanating Jesus.”
Matthew 5:14 (MSG)   “Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept . We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill.”  Ras Robinson 

October 5, 2013.   Now is not the time to give up.  In the natural it looks too far gone and hopeless.  It isn’t.  Seeds have been planted by you and others for years that have remained in the dark, in the earth for the right time of sprouting and eventually bearing fruit.  You are not a quitter.  Don’t entertain quitting now.  Remain strong in your faith and even grow stronger in this time of darkness.  The planting and watering is still going on in ways you can’t see.  I am the gardener.
Psalms 139:12 (NASB)   “Even the darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day.  Darkness and light are alike to You.”  Bev Robinson

October 5, 2013.   Firmly reject any notion you have of unbelief.  It is in the belief quotient where miracles as well as signs and wonders take place.  Many things have failed to take place due to unbelief.  It is critical to have faith to believe for certain matters to happen.  Faith and lack thereof have been the elements which have tipped the scale as to whether something came to fruition or not.  Don’t find yourself on the outside looking in due to skepticism.  Join in with the throng of saints before you and believe.
Hebrews 3:12 (NLT)   “Be careful then, dear brothers and sisters.  Make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving, turning you away from the living God.”  Kevin Robinson 


October 4, 2013.   As aspen turn golden and dance in the wind, my heart cries out for the beauty and simplicity of God’s design.  Each day of their metamorphosis brings heightened delight.  People travel from far and wide to see this phenomenon in the fall of the year.  Only a loving, capable, intelligent, virtuous and beautiful wife in all her glory can be such a crown to her husband.  God in heaven knows exactly what He is doing to bring glory to mankind through the holy union of godly matrimony.  Let the women and men rejoice!
Proverbs 31:10 (AMP)   “A capable, intelligent, and virtuous woman-who is he who can find her?  She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls.”  Ras Robinson 

October 4, 2013.   A common idiom you have heard is “You can be so heavenly minded that you are no earthly good.”  From My point of view that is totally inaccurate.  To be heavenly minded is to be on My frequency and when you are heavenly minded, you are supremely of earthly good.  You will think, feel and act as My Son did.  You will lay down your life for others.  You will exude a life that draws people to you and you in turn will point people to Me.  Precious, be heavenly minded.
John 14:5-6 (NKJV)  “Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”  Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”  Bev Robinson

October 4, 2013.   Be strong.  Strength is already in you.  All you need to do is make application of what is yours.  For too long you have believed falsehoods and misunderstandings of what is inside of you.  You have spent entirely too much time dwelling over the fact of accomplishing matters by your own hands.  In regard to something you firmly believe, you have no problem being bold in stating what you know to be true.  You are not alone.  Cast fear aside knowing Holy Spirit accompanies you at all times.
Joshua 1:9 (NASB)  “Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous!  Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”   Kevin Robinson 


October 3, 2013.   You experienced a saddening weight on your shoulders and in your soul.  This happened when you discovered that one by one your freedom is being chipped away.  Legal rights and privileges so precious are being taken from you.  Yesterday, I drove into this beautiful valley near where we are staying in the mountains for some rest.  We were greeted by a large herd of mule deer, does, bucks and youngsters.  They roamed quite freely as they inspected our car and listened attentively to our words to them.  Freedom looked good on them.
Galatians 5:1 (MSG)  “Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you.”  Ras Robinson 

October 3, 2013.   Raise your sights.  Don’t spend time thinking about the wrongs that have been done by you or others.  Choose to forgive yourself and others.  Get those things behind you.  I have great things for you to do.  I want you going about encouraging and helping people do the same as I have just said to you.  Spend your time thinking and following concepts and ideas that will help people change the world.  I have called you to change the world.  Start today. When you follow My lead, exponential godliness flourishes.
Philippians 3:13-14 (AMP)   “I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the [supreme and heavenly] prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward.”  Bev Robinson

October 3, 2013.   Time accompanied with pain of many sorts, has allowed protective layers upon layers to be built upon you.  Stop making excuses and rise up above the fray.  Everyone has troubles and difficulties.  The choice is yours on how to deal with yours.  Though the suffering stings and bites, use the situations to mature you in ways in which you can in turn minister to others.  Allow Me to gently remove the shielding coatings you have put on and learn to thrive from what once caused extreme discomfort.
3 John 1:2 (NLT)  “Dear friend, I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit.”  Kevin Robinson


October 2, 2013.   There is a shaking aiming for you.  Shakings sometimes cannot be avoided because the Lord is shaking us.  But the devil and the world have plans to shake you and to keep on shaking you.  Pray the Lord to reveal Himself as always being with you no matter the shaking.  King David discovered that the Lord was always with him.  But even more than that, the Lord was continually by his side.  The Lord says, “Even as I was in stride with King David, so it is with you.  Trust and obey.”
Acts 2:25 (NLT)   “King David said this about him: ‘I see that the LORD is always with me.  I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.” Ras Robinson 

October 2, 2013.   I know you have forgiven, but you need to forgive again.  The incidents are more front and center in your mind than they should be.  Keep forgiving until the event remains a memory, but with no emotion attached.  These incidents have been used to get you to where you are now.  Replace unforgiveness with thanksgiving.  When you are as thankful as you are determined to hold unforgiveness, you will be blessed.  Be an example to others of forgiveness and blessings will come to you that will be hard to believe.
Mathew 18:21-22 (NIV)  “Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me?  Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”  Bev Robinson

October 2, 2013.  How often do thoughts of thanksgiving and gratitude cross your mind?  Are you so caught up in your busyness that you can’t stop to offer thanks for the provision I’ve faithfully given you again and again?  Has your focus shifted toward what hasn’t happened rather than what has?  Realign your thought patterns to the position of awe.  Take time to realize all I have done for you.  Get to a place where you can see all I have done to get you exactly where you are right now.
Psalm 97:12 (NASB)  “Be glad in the Lord, you righteous ones, and give thanks to His holy name.”  Kevin Robinson


October 1, 2013.  Behold and watch. I am ready to do some new things for and with you.  Keep your eyes clear and your ears open.  Listen to the rustle of the grasses and leaves.  Pay attention to the birds.  Look around at what is happening with the weather and changes in the seasons.  Observe the clouds and the stars.  Behold, I am speaking loudly in all these things for those who want to hear.  Let Me train your senses to zero in on every tone and peep from My mouth.  Behold and watch.
Isaiah 65:17 (NIV)  “Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth.  The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind.”  Ras Robinson 

October 1, 2013.   My track to moving higher is before you.  Some fear is in your emotions that you won’t be able to get on track or move higher.  Don’t entertain fear in any way.  Yes fearful thoughts will come but repel every one of them.  I know your thoughts before you think them.  Instead let’s turn fearful thoughts into excitement.  True excitement from Me will lead and fuel your faith.  Give all of your days ahead to Me.  Right now there is a smidgen of unbelief . Lay it all on the altar.
Psalms 139:1-4 (NASB)   “O Lord, You have searched me and known me.  You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar.  You scrutinize my path and my lying down,  And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.   Even before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, O Lord, You know it all.”   Bev Robinson

October 1, 2013.   Give heed.  For a while now you have disregarded My detailed instructions for you.  Though you will not be forced into changing, I strongly advise you to pay close attention to the guidance I am giving you.  You have been searching for quite some time for direction for yourself and looking for pinpoint bearings about what to do next.  Listen carefully for My voice.  Do whatever it takes to filter out the outside noise clamoring for attention.  Change will have to take place on your part.
John 10:27 (NLT)  “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”   Kevin Robinson

What the Lord is Saying Today – October 2013 — 1 Comment

  1. Isaiah 43:18-19
    New King James Version (NKJV)
    18 “Do not remember the former things,
    Nor consider the things of old.
    19 Behold, I will do a new thing,
    Now it shall spring forth;
    Shall you not know it?
    I will even make a road in the wilderness
    And rivers in the desert.
