September 30, 2013. If you are blessed with only one loving and loyal friend in your life, you are a rich person. Your friendships will be tested. But in the end, your loving and loyal friend will be with you until and beyond the end. Should you desire more such friends you must continually show yourself friendly. A true friend will walk with you through hard times and rescue you from trouble and disaster. Blessings abound when there is such loyalty. There will be an everlasting legacy with such a friend. Stay close.
Proverbs 17:17 (KJV) “A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” Ras Robinson
September 30, 2013. Your interests have been elsewhere. It’s okay. You have not gone overboard. I know you My child. I know your frame and I also know your heart. You listen to My voice and heed Me. This is just a reminder. Draw your mind your emotions your actions back to center on My ways, My paths and My truth. Concentrate on the depth of My word. Seek ways to find the depths of My heart and you will crest the waves of My blessings. Seek to know Me as I know you.
Psalms 103:14-17 (NASB) “For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust. As for man, his days are like grass; As a flower of the field, so he flourishes. When the wind has passed over it, it is no more, And its place acknowledges it no longer. But the lovingkindness of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children’s children,” Bev Robinson
September 30, 2013. What is it that consumes you? Are you consumed with finances and/or success? How about your family and all the dynamics pertaining to that organism? Perhaps it is your health, your future, your dreams and goals? Everyone has something that almost completely takes over every moment of every day. If it’s not one thing, it is another matter which occupies your precious time. Change your focus. Let Me be the object of your devotion and dedication. Give Me your undivided attention like you do that “something else!”
Revelation 5:12 (NKJV) “saying with a loud voice: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!” Kevin Robinson
September 28, 2013. My wife and I are resting in the Rocky Mountains, a beautiful part of America. These mountains were named because they display some of the most massive rock structures in the world. In some cases, an entire hill looks like a solid rock. They were brought forth through massive earthquakes and volcanoes. There is enormous peace emanating from them for those who can spiritually hear the Lord. Stand on the Rock and you will never be defeated! Jesus is our Rock.
Psalm 28:1 (NLT) “I pray to you, O LORD, my rock. Do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you are silent, I might as well give up and die.” Ras Robinson
September 28, 2013. Everything is all right in the Father’s house. Let that go down deep into your spirit and filter out into your soul and body. I will alert you if anything opposite from that will happen. Don’t give any credence at all to the thought that came to your mind, the thought that something bad will be happening. Living in the past is for the purpose of forgiveness or remembering the good things I have done. Living in the future is for the prophetic blessings ahead. But now Precious, live your life in the present.
Philippians 3:14 (KJV) “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Bev Robinson
September 28, 2013. Live your life with no regrets. Instead of having to apologize for things you did not say or did not do, live a lifestyle of possibilities. Do not be consumed with what might have been. Perhaps dwelling on what once was has become a crutch you have leaned upon. Commit within your innermost being right now to stop making excuses. Be a “can do” person. Do not dwell in the past. Change your mindset from that of seeing obstacles to recognizing the limitless prospects and opportunities ahead.
James 1:23-24 (NLT) “For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like.” Kevin Robinson
September 27, 2013. Receive the blessing of grace and peace. You have chosen well to go to the mountain for “the mountains shall bring peace to the people” (Psalm 72:3). See the Lord at each level and window you can find. You know of Him and you know Jesus lives within you. But do you know His ways, paths and truth? Take the opportunity today to go deeper in your study and hunger for knowledge. He beckons you to come to His throne of grace. Come humbly and drink deeply. He delights in you.
2 Peter 1:2 (NLT) “May God give you more and more grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord.” Ras Robinson
September 27, 2013. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Understand that you are harder on yourself than I am. Of course I want you to be obedient. I know that when you are obedient, then blessings abound to you. You walk in blessings all the time. There are just more that result from your obedience because you are walking the path I have set before you. I see your heart and know you want to obey . If you fail to receive My grace and mercy, you won’t have the impetus to follow Me in obedience.
Hebrews 4:16 (NIV) “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” Bev Robinson
September 27, 2013. Take necessary measures to insure loyalty, devotion, and commitment to your fellow brothers and sisters. Too often people are eager to divulge the faults and shortcomings of others. Place yourself in another individual’s position, considering how you might feel if some of your intimate matters were made public. Do whatever it takes to cover one another. You are all members of one body. Therefore, walk in and with love toward one another. Forgive as you too have been forgiven. Let the world around you experience love like never before.
John 8:7 (NASB) “They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” Kevin Robinson
September 26, 2013. Great losses can lead to phenomenal breakthroughs. Yesterday morning at 8:30 a.m. CDT, a great friend and man of God passed through the pearly gates of Heaven. Around the time of his departure, Bev and I were in a mountain cabin. We heard a very strong gust of wind outside . The gust was so strong that it triggered the security lights outside to turn on. Later, I heard about my friend and wondered if he made a “visit” to us on his way home. It would not surprise me! Cherish your friends while you have them. Enjoy your crown, my friend.
Proverbs 18:24 (KJV) “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Ras Robinson
September 26, 2013. Plans have been made. This is good. You don’t want to be caught unprepared, but now plans are changing. You have to readjust your thinking. Think of what is best for others and let your own desires take a back seat. There will be time for you but it isn’t now. You said you wanted to be like the Apostle Paul and die daily. You weren’t thinking it would be like this… but it is Don’t insist on having your way. Keep your mind open. Stay flexible and you’ll be blessed.
Proverbs 16:9 (AMP) “A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure.” Bev Robinson
September 26, 2013. Be bold enough to share what you believe you’ve heard. Through trial and error, make the effort to share with others what I have laid upon your heart. If you never divulge the inside information I relay to you, individuals will never experience the joy I have in store for them. Words of knowledge and words of wisdom are a piece of My treasure that I like to impart through people like you. Be a vessel of honor that’s willing to move beyond your comfort zone and share heavenly mysteries.
1 Corinthians 12:8 (AMP) “To one is given in and through the [Holy] Spirit [the power to speak] a message of wisdom, and to another [the power to express] a word of knowledge and understanding according to the same [Holy] Spirit;” Kevin Robinson
September 25, 2013. Your soul seems to be dragging the bottom. This is not like you. The Lord says, “Do not despair because things are not the most joyful and pleasant now. I am the God of joy and praise. It only takes a word from Me to change your life. Lifting your soul back to heavenly heights is my joy. Place your trust in Me and you will never need to be ashamed. Your enemies do not have a chance to defeat you because I am your safe guard and fortress.
Psalm 25:1-2 (NASB) “To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul. O my God, in You I trust, Do not let me be ashamed; Do not let my enemies exult over me.” Ras Robinson
September 25, 2013. Some of your affairs need attention. Nothing has become a big problem, but you need to do something before big problems occur. It is time for good cultivation. Seeds were planted and a harvest is on its way, but the seeds need watering and loosening of the ground for ultimate growth. Be diligent about this. If you do it now, there will be good plant formation and briers won’t take over. Yes there will be some pruning later but that is only for optimum growth and greater fruit production.
Matthew 13:23 (NLT) “The seed that fell on good soil represents those who truly hear and understand God’s word and produce a harvest of thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much as had been planted!” Bev Robinson
September 25, 2013. If your world seems a bit topsy-turvy, you’re in pretty good shape. In the world around you what you see is the natural, but you exist in the spiritual. You know someone according to what is inside them, more than what you perceive from the outside appearance . You know Me as Savior by the Spirit, correct? You also know your best friends according to their personality, not by their looks. In the spiritual, to die is to really live. To deny yourself is actually gain. In giving, you truly receive.
Philippians 1:21 (NLT) “For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better.” Kevin Robinson
September 24, 2013. You are wise and strong. Over the years, you have increased in knowledge in all areas, including the Kingdom of God. Because of this, I have given you uncommon spiritual power. Every word from your mouth explodes with insight and blessings for others. This has resulted in your starting spiritual fires in people beyond national boundaries. When you open your mouth and when you take pen or keyboard in hand, there is a release of My power to change lives forever. Your wisdom abounds as you seek other wise counsel.
Proverbs 24:5-6 (NASB) “A wise man is strong, and a man of knowledge increases power. For by wise guidance you will wage war, and in abundance of counselors there is victory.” Ras Robinson
September 24, 2013. A panic situation is coming. But don’t panic. Keep your emotions under control so your mind will be able to get into high gear. You can do this if you rely on Me . But it will take a complete absolute reliance. My Spirit will commune with your spirit and bring to mind problem solving which is out of the ordinary. You will be able to take immediate needed actions if you stay calm. This situation will have a good outcome, and you will be able to return to peace quickly.
1 Corinthians 2:11-12 (NASB) “For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God,” Bev Robinson
September 24, 2013. Deliver My truth at full strength. There is no point at which you should water it down or dilute it. People are more than able to receive Me and My full revelation no matter where they are or in whatever condition they are. Your role is simple. You are My messenger and I am the message. Don’t worry about what you should say because My Holy Spirit will bring to utterance exactly what needs to be spoken and when. Focus on being obedient to My commands.
John 14:6 (NASB) “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father but through Me.” Kevin Robinson
September 23, 2013. Justice is being prepared for your great and coming blessings. You have experienced some extreme injustices, but now the tables are to be turned for your complete restoration. When all this bad storm cloud passes, you will be healed, delivered and saved from all the plans of the devil and his minion (no matter in what form or shape they have been coming at you). God has seen what people and Babylonian life has visited upon you. He will not be mocked. Your testimony will be told for generations. Selah.
Joel 3:19-20 (MSG) “But Egypt will be reduced to weeds in a vacant lot, Edom turned into barren badlands, All because of brutalities to the Judean people, the atrocities and murders of helpless innocents. Meanwhile, Judah will be filled with people, Jerusalem inhabited forever.” Ras Robinson
September 23, 2013. You have been through a time of testing. It was hard but you handled yourself well and have come through unscathed and without discouragement. A bubble of blessing is coming. Stay in the bubble. Don’t get out. You will be tempted to take things into your own hands because it will feel good. Don’t move outside the bubble. Stay under authority and you will experience more freedom than you can imagine. You are in the exact place where you need to be. Activities will get into high gear but you will remain peaceful.
Psalms 23: 6 “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Bev Robinson
September 23, 2013. Satan has done his best to steal joy from your camp. In doing so, he has all but quenched any glowing ember that remained from former happier times. Refuse to let him take any more good times away from you. Do whatever it takes to find joy and laughter. Recognize how some of the smallest and minuscule things in life have brought some of the greatest joys to you. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Realize this — the happiness and enjoyment I place before you continually is for you. Choose to laugh.
Proverbs 17:22 (NLT) “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.” Kevin Robinson
September 21, 2013. Stay above the fallen Babylon. Babylon is a state of mind and a prison for your soul. Your friends may, but not you. You have a bright light from heaven guiding you. Do not in any way participate in the Babylon home of demons. You already know to take the high road. The low road is dark with very little light. You do not want that. You are full of the bright splendor of the Lord. You shine a bright light because the source of light is always glowing in you.
Revelation 18:1-2 (NLT) “After all this I saw another angel come down from heaven with great authority, and the earth grew bright with his splendor. He gave a mighty shout: “Babylon is fallen-that great city is fallen! She has become a home for demons. She is a hideout for every foul spirit, a hideout for every foul vulture and every foul and dreadful animal.” Ras Robinson
September 21, 2013. Some undercurrent things are happening that you don’t know about. You don’t need to know about them and, if you will trust Me, you will never know about them. It will save you some heartache. You will be able to go about the regular things of life without the temptation of judging the things going on. The things you do need to know I reveal. Don’t worry or even wonder if there are things happening which are not above board. Don’t speculate or be suspicious. I care for you.
Philippians 4:8 (NLT) “And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” Bev Robinson
September 21, 2013. Though it sounds rather simple, My request for you to oblige is somewhat difficult. A challenge of sorts is in order. Consider relinquishing your will over to My way of doing things. You’ve had more than enough time to get some things accomplished to no avail. Think through all the efforts you have made in order to see something come to fruition. You have run yourself ragged and you’re almost completely worn out. Resign your way of accomplishing matters. Yield to Me and let Me bring about My way.
Isaiah 55:8-9 (NLT) “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” Kevin Robinson
September 20, 2013. These are the days of Elijah! It is good that you are faithful in your work. Elisha showed himself to be as one who works hard as well. When Elijah went out, he found Elisha and threw his cloak over him, symbolizing an anointing being given by God. Both these men were great prophets. God knew that succession had to take place before Elijah was called to heaven in his chariot. Be prepared for the eyes of the Lord are upon you because you are in the days of Elijah!
1 Kings 19:19 (MSG) “Elijah went straight out and found Elisha son of Shaphat in a field where there were twelve pairs of yoked oxen at work plowing; Elisha was in charge of the twelfth pair. Elijah went up to him and threw his cloak over him.” Ras Robinson
September 20, 2013. I want you to know with no shadow of doubt that you are loved with a love that has no comparison. I knew you before you were born. I was there when some mistakes were made. I was also keeping some mistakes from happening which, if made, could not be reversed. I was taking the utmost care of you then and I’m doing the same now. You delight Me with many of your actions. We talk and commune with each other. This will only get sweeter as you get older.
Psalms 139:15-17 (NLT) “You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered!” Bev Robinson
September 20, 2013. It’s time to realign your focus. Your attention has been directed toward yourself and your own wants. Let your eyes become fixed on matters involving My kingdom. Though you are a vital part, My desire is for you to pay close attention to the things I am purposely placing before you. Train yourself to recognize those things which are obviously from Me . Know you will be tempted to follow and chase after things which can easily entice you. Develop a disciplined lifestyle that is permanently fixed on things concerning Me.
Hebrews 12:2a (ERV) “We must never stop looking to Jesus. He is the leader of our faith, and he is the one who makes our faith complete.” Kevin Robinson
September 19, 2013. It is okay to cry out to God for help. He is God and with enough power and love to help you. Think of yourself as a little child who knows your father loves and accepts you. The child depends on that love and acceptance and will cry out to the father. God never fails or falls short. Do not try to fight your battle alone. The Lord says, “Come to Me and tell me all about your hurts and distresses. I promise a listening ear and open hands and heart.”
Psalm 18:6 (NASB) “In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God for help; He heard my voice out of His temple, and my cry for help before Him came into His ears.” Ras Robinson
September 19, 2013. Celebrate My goodness. Go from the ridiculous to the sublime. You have escaped by the hair of your chinny-chin-chin. And you didn’t even know you were in danger. From My view point I can see all who are involved and what is involved. I am protecting all. I am in the protection business. Don’t you remember how I have done it in the past? Have you ever gotten what you deserved? No! You know you haven’t. Don’t dig around to find the junk. Precious, get on with living.
2 John 1:5-6 (MSG) “But permit me a reminder, friends, and this is not a new commandment but simply a repetition of our original and basic charter: that we love each other. Love means following his commandments, and his unifying commandment is that you conduct your lives in love. This is the first thing you heard, and nothing has changed.” Bev Robinson
September 19, 2013. Your persistence is very noteworthy and your perseverance is extremely admirable. Many people before you would have given up long before now but that is not so for you. People are watching you and are learning a great deal about your relationship with Me. Determination is an element where many individuals falter. You yourself have the resolve to stay with and complete the task at hand. Much like Noah, you are committed to what you began. Continue with your resolve and see how I faithfully reward your diligence and faithfulness.
Hebrews 3:14 (NLT) “For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ.” Kevin Robinson
September 18, 2013. Humility befits you. Beware when people seek to exalt you. With that exaltation comes a certainty that one day you will fall from that man-made grace. Instead, at every opportunity, walk the walk as Jesus did with His total dependence upon His Father. The Great Temptation of Jesus in the wilderness had to do with the devil seeking to trick Jesus into devil-made grace. Jesus did not need it, but He did need to resist and rebuke the devil for our sake. He did, paving the way for our own humility.
1 Peter 5:6-7 (NASB) “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time,casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.” Ras Robinson
September 18, 2013. Overwhelmed is the feeling coming over and over to your soul. Now is the time to stop in your tracks. Don’t wait for another time. Do it now. You need to take care of some things that have built up, causing you to be overwhelmed. Some need to be done and some need to be jettisoned. List them and give them all to Me. I will give you the wisdom to know how to categorize each one. Don’t delay any longer in applying yourself to get this done. Do it now.
Hebrews 3:15 (NLT) “Remember what it says: “Today when you hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts as Israel did when they rebelled.” Bev Robinson
September 18, 2013. Here is an attitude you ought to attempt for a season. Let your replies and responses to Me be yes. Then see if your life is in a better place than it was before you started the trial run. Try it for a while and see what your results are. I have awesome plans for you, but I need your complete trust and full cooperation for the fullness of blessings to be poured out upon you. An obedient heart is what I long for you to have.
Psalm 27:14 (NASB) “Wait for the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.” Kevin Robinson
September 17, 2013. You have the love of Jesus made known to you. His love for you is without measure. He wants you to make the name of God known to all people possible. For you to glorify the Father by making His name known, is the highest honor Jesus can give you and you can give back again. For this to happen, you must be totally assured that Jesus is alive and active within you. The most powerful being in the universe, heaven and earth is now in you to be just like Jesus.
John 17:25-26 (NASB) “O righteous Father, although the world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me; and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.” Ras Robinson
September 17, 2013. Navigate this challenge very carefully . Don’t assume you know how to do this because of past victories. You could be in trouble very quickly if you think you can handle this the same way. This one is different. You will learn a lot from handling this but don’t get self-assured. Stay in an attitude of listening and learning. Remember you have asked Me for wisdom. Now don’t get antsy and go ahead without My direction. I have a way of handling this that will astound all. I will be praised.
Isaiah 40:4-5. “Fill in the valleys, and level the mountains and hills. Straighten the curves, and smooth out the rough places. Then the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all people will see it together. The Lord has spoken!” Bev Robinson
September 17, 2013. There is no place you can go to escape My presence. During times when you feel there is no way I could be present, I am in your midst. In the deepest depths of despair, I am beside you. When you feel all alone and in your darkest hour, I am with you. When you cannot get an answer to your most trying questions, I am with you. When you cannot see an end in sight to the situation you are in, I am the way.
Isaiah 43:2 (NLT) “When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.” Kevin Robinson
September 16, 2013. Is the Lord Himself enough inheritance for you? It may be that indeed your parents left you nothing. Many could say that. But in your case, God the Father sent His Son Jesus as your inheritance. He also sent the Holy Spirit to comfort and lead you. This means you can never really be left alone for the Spirit will never leave you. With the Lord supporting you, how could you ever say you never get your portion? Face up to it and give praise for your inheritance. Give thanks.
Psalm 16:5 (NASB) “The LORD is the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You support my lot.” Ras Robinson
September 16, 2013. Things are on a roll. Don’t slow down. Don’t stop and rethink. Don’t entertain the thought that it is too good to be true. You have been praying a long time and you prayed at the beginning for wisdom. I have heard your prayers. I have given you wisdom. You waited for Me. Now go ahead. Don’t let anyone or anything intimidate you. You have started in humility. Now remain humble. Don’t let the success of what is happening go to your head. Remember this is all from Me.
James 4:6 (AMP) “But He gives us more and more grace (power of the Holy Spirit, to meet this evil tendency and all others fully). That is why He says, God sets Himself against the proud and haughty, but gives grace [continually] to the lowly (those who are humble enough to receive it).” Bev Robinson
September 16, 2013. Recognize this — nothing you do is petty or insignificant. Everything you say and do is on record and you will have to give an account of every idle word spoken. Don’t treat anything as if it is insignificant or irrelevant. Know that if you are called by Me and according to My purposes, the word ALL comes into play. My word does not say some or most things, but all things work together for good. Pray that you will have a paradigm shift to see things from My point of view.
Romans 8:28 (AMP) “We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.” Kevin Robinson
September 14, 2013. Do you ever find yourself feeling lonely? The Lord says, “Stop depending on this world with all it has to offer. There have been times when, in the midst of a crowd, you feel not at home with them. You feel at home with love and acceptance radiating Jesus to you. When that happens, you do not feel alone. God has something better than that. He sends Jesus to live within you as your constant companion. Forget about loneliness. It cannot exist with Jesus within you.
John 14:3, 6 (NASB) “‘If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.” Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” Ras Robinson
September 14, 2013. Things are beginning to improve. Keep going the way and the speed you are going. You have prayed and stayed aware. Now it is beginning to bring dividends. Don’t falter now. Don’t let up. Stay alert and head the enemy off immediately when he raises his head. Don’t stop your praying and don’t stop your communication. Rally others to get on board and remind them of the importance of what is going on. Remind them to do the right thing. One day you will look back and greatly rejoice.
2 Thessalonians 3:13 (AMP) “And as for you, brethren, do not become weary or lose heart in doing right [but continue in well-doing without weakening].” Bev Robinson
September 14, 2013. Where is your sense of urgency? Everyone feels the pressure when it is something that pertains to them, but what about in regard to someone else? Yield your yoke of responsibility to that which Jesus Himself had. He knew time was of the essence. He utilized every moment, every hour. With the Holy Spirit’s power, He is able to capitalize on every opportunity presented to you. I am the one who takes your burdens, upon Myself. Let those matters which seem like there is no tomorrow, be placed upon My shoulders.
Matthew 11:30 (NASB) “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Kevin Robinson
September 13, 2013. The authority of Jesus is rejected and manifestations from the Holy Spirit are condemned in some religious congregations. Unbelief is a deadly sin. It thwarts and hinders the work of God wherever it is allowed to thrive. There was a great move of God wherein people met Jesus and became what some would say was a little excessive. Those people were commonly labeled “Jesus freaks.” Or worse, they were called “holy rollers.” Speaking in tongues became a label of excess. A major denomination has encouraged their people to stop such expressions. Let us confess and repent!
Matthew 13:57-58 (NASB) “And they took offense at Him. But Jesus said to them, ‘A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his own household.’ And He did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief.” Ras Robinson
September 13, 2013. A new beginning is coming. It will come quietly with no fanfare. It will seem to appear suddenly. So much will be going on and it will seem suddenly, but it really isn’t. This newness will also come quickly to others. They won’t be prepared. There will be reasons to become discouraged but don’t go there. Don’t entertain these. Keep your nose down, stay focused and continue to work efficiently. Don’t dwell on the bad “what nots.” Dwell on the good “what ifs.” When you look up, there will be a very pleasant surprise.
Philippians 4:8-9 (NLT) “And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me-everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.” Bev Robinson
September 13, 2013. It’s time for being vigilant. Be attentive to your surroundings and to what is happening around you. Beware when times are good. Satan is lurking at your doorstep waiting to wreak havoc in your life. You have been appointed as a watchman on the wall. Take up your position seriously and man your battle station. Be ever heedful and observe carefully the situations before you. Satan is very cunning and his schemes are hard to detect. Stand strong where you’re positioned. Continually ask Me to reveal his whereabouts.
1 Corinthians 16:13 (NLT) “Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong.” Kevin Robinson
September 12, 2013. Jesus never failed at anything His Father asked Him to do. He only did what His Father was doing anyway. He never failed to carry out the will of the Father. You have been thinking of late that the devil has the upper hand over you and the church. All the evidence you deem necessary is displayed before you to prove you have failed and that Jesus has failed. This has left you emotionally drained and feeling defeated. Stress has led to despair. But God!
1 John 3:8 (NASB) “…The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.” Ras Robinson
September 12, 2013. An opportunity is coming for reconciliation. Keep this in mind and don’t let the opportunity pass. It will come quietly and with no fanfare, so be aware and seize it, also quietly and with no fanfare. When this is done, you will see a difference in relationships. I am at work setting this up. You be at work and move at the right time. No one will notice except you. I have made you both a minister of reconciliation, but you are the one who needs to step up first.
2 Corinthians 5:19 (NLT) “For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation.” Bev Robinson
September 12, 2013. What will it take to get you moving? There is no excuse for the procrastination which is happening right now. No more excuses. No more justifications for the situation in which you have found yourself. Lay down the reservations or uncertainties you are encountering. Place your reliance upon Me. You have had some setbacks of late and they have taken the wind out of your sails. Nevertheless, let the wind of Holy Spirit come and guide you into His perfect provision. Prepare yourself to receive nothing but the very best.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NASB) “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Kevin Robinson
September 11, 2013. Gossip is worthless chatter not worthy of being known. Perhaps you have been wounded by malicious gossip. You may have participated in gossip. But know this. God says of the person who gossips that they cannot be trusted with a secret. You are to avoid such a one. It is an addiction almost impossible to overcome. The gossiper feels his worthless chatter somehow gains for him power and recognition. He is wrong and needs to repent. He has been blinded by his sin. Avoid the gossip and refuse to participate.
Proverbs 11:13 (MSG) “A gadabout gossip can’t be trusted with a secret, but someone of integrity won’t violate a confidence.” Ras Robinson
September 11, 2013. Don’t have faith in your faith. Have faith in Me . Record what you believe I said. Yes I can do the impossible, but it doesn’t mean just because it is impossible I will do it. I will do what is best for you. I cause all things to work together. All the pieces of the puzzle cannot be seen right now. What have I told you? Deep in your spirit you know. Now is not the time for fear. Now is the time to exercise your faith totally in Me.
Romans 8:28-29 (NIV) “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.” Bev Robinson
September 11, 2013. Like the Apostle John, you are a revelator. You are My mouthpiece and scribe. Every day I pour forth knowledge and truth to those who know Me. You hear My voice succinctly and clearly. Having done so, declare what you have seen and/or heard with pinpoint precision. Though I never change, I am new every morning. I am revealing fresh and new and wondrous mysteries just like a new day dawning. Be willing to let Me use you to declare My marvelous truth and wonder. Reveal Me.
1 Corinthians 2:9-10 (NASB) “but just as it is written, “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.” For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.” Kevin Robinson
September 10, 2013. The poor will always be with us. They help populate every city around the world. They are in the jungles and barren places. You also find them in very large cities and in the villages and remote rural locations. He knows their hopes and aspirations. The poorest one is as valuable and worthy of love and care as the richest or most gifted one. He desires to strengthen the oppressed so they are strong, well fed and clothed. God says, “When you care for these, My blessings rebound to you.”
Psalm 10:17-18 (NLT) “LORD, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them. You will bring justice to the orphans and the oppressed, so mere people can no longer terrify them.” Ras Robinson
September 10, 2013. You are doing the right thing by not making a big deal over something. Continue keeping your cool. Continue hoping and praying and believing this is going to work out well. I am giving you wisdom as you go. Continue acting like there is nothing wrong. From your stand point there really isn’t. So there is no reason for you to act any other way. You are acting with maturity and showing love. I know that is really the way you feel. Precious, your actions will bring blessings to many.
Hebrews 11:6 (NASB) “And 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 seek Him.” Bev Robinson
September 10, 2013. Complaining is the praise life of self. You groan and moan because you don’t get what you think is rightfully yours. When you do get even the slightest morsel of something you have desired, a gluttonous mindset overtakes you and you hoard excessively. You become grumpy and cantankerous over some of the smallest matters. Mole hills have been made into mountains and now almost nothing seems to satisfy your insatiable wants. When will the irritable progression end? When will enough be enough? Be satisfied with what I have provided you.
1 Timothy 6:6 (NASB) “But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.” Kevin Robinson
September 9, 2013. Feeling altogether adequate and qualified to teach and preach God’s word has never come easy for me. There have been times when, just before starting a message, I have stopped for prayer and tears. But then comes the anointing to wash away all fears and tears. The more you love God the more you want to please Him. He assures you once again of your calling and injects grace and wisdom. It will become a teaching and learning moment when He reminds you just how right on you are just being yourself for Him.
Matthew 7:28-29 (MSG) “When Jesus concluded his address, the crowd burst into applause. They had never heard teaching like this. It was apparent that he was living everything he was saying — quite a contrast to their religion teachers! This was the best teaching they had ever heard.” Ras Robinson
September 9, 2013. Some things are not right. I have shown you what they are. I know you don’t like to cause problems with anyone and this is commendable. But when something is wrong, it is wrong, not because you see it wrong, but because I see it wrong. Speak your heart and keep Me as the controller of your emotions. Part of the fruit of the Spirit is self-control . You can control yourself if I am in control. Speak under authority and especially under My authority. You will see a difference.
Psalms 7:10-13 (NLT) “God is my shield, saving those whose hearts are true and right. God is an honest judge. He is angry with the wicked every day. If a person does not repent, God will sharpen his sword; he will bend and string his bow. He will prepare his deadly weapons and shoot his flaming arrows.” Bev Robinson
September 9, 2013. What’s mine is yours. As an heir to the throne, you have full rights and privileges to all I have. You are a spiritual sibling of mine and all that My Father has is yours for the taking. Don’t wallow around in the mud thinking about what might have been. Realize and embrace that you are a beneficiary. As a recipient of blood line benefits, there are responsibilities which go hand in hand with the freedoms you have. Don’t squander the gift you have been given. Utilize what is yours.
Galatians 4:6-7 (MSG) “You can tell for sure that you are now fully adopted as his own children because God sent the Spirit of his Son into our lives crying out, “Papa! Father!” Doesn’t that privilege of intimate conversation with God make it plain that you are not a slave, but a child? And if you are a child, you’re also an heir, with complete access to the inheritance.” Kevin Robinson
September 7, 2013. You are facing the battle of a lifetime. Let God give you wisdom from on high. When the Hebrews were virtually assured of defeat and destruction, Moses encouraged them to hold their peace. He said, “The Lord will fight the battle for you. Your powerful enemy, who can easily destroy you, will be no more.” They were swallowed up by the Red Sea. Who would have thought it or been bold enough to prophesy it? The major battles in my life have been won by the Lord through holding my peace. Scoffers may have thought I was a spineless coward. But the Lord took the day and we ultimately won. Face your battle and give it to the Lord.
Exodus 14:14 (NKJV) “The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” Ras Robinson
September 7, 2013. Something is heavy on your mind. Do whatever you can to roll it over on Me. This will affect your body if you give in to worry. In no way is worry beneficial because it will not fix anything. Take your thoughts captive turn worry around to prayer. Let what is wrong form your prayers. Prayer is always good and affects this problem more than you think. Leave your worry and turn to Me. Then think on the good ways in the past things like this turned out good.
Philippians 4:6-7 (MSG) “Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.” Bev Robinson
September 7, 2013. Whether you believe it or not, you are being watched like a hawk. Every move you make is under scrutiny. Perhaps it is your children. For sure it is your neighbors. And it is most definitely those with whom you attend church. You are underneath the microscope in the eyes of so many people. Because of this, it is important to live a righteous lifestyle. That’s not to say one that is perfect, but one that represents Me as your King. Let everything exhibit that you are a true disciple of Mine.
Matthew 5:16 (NIV) “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Kevin Robinson
September 6, 2013. Crying out and prayers to God have all been heard. Men, women, boys and girls should always pray. In the early morning, at noon time and in the evening you pray. Your soul is strengthened and seasoned as you pray. The Lord says, “I am your God who shows mercy and acceptance. I never judge you. Rather, your actions may face My wise and understanding correction and guidance. You will experience great blessings from Me through your obedience. The sooner you learn and believe, the better will be your life.”
Psalm 6:9 (NIV) “The LORD has heard my cry for mercy; the LORD accepts my prayer.” Ras Robinson
September 6, 2013. Discouragement is knocking at your door. Open the door of your heart only to Me. I am always there, but discouragement is looking around the corner hoping to sneak right past Me through the door. Hope deferred makes the heart sick and your heart feels sick now. Don’t hope in others to fix the problem or even for others to fix you. I never control you or anyone else. I love you and others too much to control. I always give choices and I encourage good choices. I am the Counselor.
Proverbs 13:12-13 (AMP) “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire is fulfilled, it is a tree of life. Whoever despises the word and counsel [of God] brings destruction upon himself, but he who [reverently] fears and respects the commandment [of God] is rewarded.” Bev Robinson
September 6, 2013. It is okay to wait. You often become impatient because of delayed gratification. Patience, or lack thereof, then becomes a critical issue for you and your emotions come into play, purely because of a short amount of time. The first miracle I performed was during the wedding feast at Cana. The wine being served ran out and it was at the end when the best wine, the wine I created, was served. When shortfall happens, expect the best. Don’t make hasty decisions, but wait for My perfect timing.
Isaiah 30:18 (NASB) “Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you, and therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him.” Kevin Robinson
September 5, 2013. Phil, the father on “Duck Dynasty” TV series, likes to brighten things up by repeatedly saying of his present mood, “I am happy, happy, happy.” The rest of his family automatically smiles or laughs. In the Sermon on the Mount message Jesus preached, He used the word “blessed.” Being blessed is being made happy because of good circumstances or being well spoken of. But the deeper and more sustained joyfulness of being blessed is beyond this world. It has to do with having and immensely enjoying God’s kingdom in your heart.
Matthew 5:3 (AMP) “Blessed (happy, to be envied, and spiritually prosperous-with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the poor in spirit (the humble, who rate themselves insignificant), for theirs is the kingdom of heaven!” Ras Robinson
September 5, 2013. It is hard for you to receive, but you are in a time when you need to receive. You have come to a place and come to people who are givers. I have brought you to the place where you are. I know it is hard for you, because you want to give. There will be a time for you to give but right now receive. I have plans for you. If you were to see and know them now they would be too big for you to believe.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NIV) “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Bev Robinson
September 5, 2013. I understand. I know and I am fully aware of your feelings of anguish and dejection. When plans do not occur like you expected, it is easy to feel despair and defeat. If those ideas you have don’t go as you would like for too long, hopelessness, gloom and misery can set in. I encourage you to keep your communication lines open with Me. Don’t suppress your frustration. Let your true emotions come forth. Place your hope in Me. Place your faith in Me alone.
Psalm 42:5 (NASB) “Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him for the help of His presence.” Kevin Robinson
September 4, 2013. Jesus shared with His fishermen followers and those fishermen of today a great insight full of wisdom. He warned that the fisherman never knows what his catch will be. He drags all the fish in his net to shore before they are culled. For those culled out and thrown away it is a final judgment. Making such judgments is God’s choice and the culling is done by the angels, separating the righteous from the wicked. God wants today’s disciples to prepare for ministry, some of the catch will be good and some will be cast away. A big part of the preparation is strengthening the heart of the fisherman.
Matthew 13:47-49 (MSG) “Or, God’s kingdom is like a fishnet cast into the sea, catching all kinds of fish. When it is full, it is hauled onto the beach. The good fish are picked out and put in a tub; those unfit to eat are thrown away. That’s how it will be when the curtain comes down on history. The angels will come and cull the bad fish.” Ras Robinson
September 4, 2013. All your life you have heard the saying, “Don’t get ahead of yourself.” That has been a tendency of many. You don’t want to do this. When you do this, you are often ahead of Me. You surely don’t want to do that. I know it is hard to wait. You live on a fast track because the world around you is getting faster. Today you are seen as smart if you can multitask. But I am saying to slow down. Wait on Me and you will succeed.
Isaiah 30:18 (NIV) “Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!” Bev Robinson
September 4, 2013. Become a standard bearer or at least one who makes a valiant attempt to stand up for truth and righteousness. Will someone care enough to make a difference in the world around them? Or will injustice and wrongdoing move forward like there is no tomorrow? Be known as one who attempts to make positive ripples of change to those around you. With so much nonsense everywhere around you, be known a one who bears good fruit through nobility. Change the world surrounding you. Move about through My Holy Spirit’s empowerment.
2 Timothy 1:13 (NLT) “Hold on to the pattern of wholesome teaching you learned from me-a pattern shaped by the faith and love that you have in Christ Jesus.” Kevin Robinson
September 3, 2013. Can you imagine? People everywhere need a touch from God . You are anointed of God for healing. You walk around wondering if you could do such a miracle. Be like Peter and John. Pay attention to the needy. Do not turn away from the crippled and indigent. Their faith is too weak to throw themselves on you to heal them. At the same time, you are not sure if you are ready. The Lord says to you, get over you timidity and double-mindedness and act. I will meet you there.
Acts 3:9-11 (MSG) “Everybody there saw him walking around and praising God. They recognized him as the one who sat begging at the Temple’s Gate Beautiful and rubbed their eyes, astonished, scarcely believing what they were seeing. The man threw his arms around Peter and John, ecstatic. All the people ran up to where they were at Solomon’s Porch to see it for themselves.” Ras Robinson
September 3, 2013. There are options before you. None of them seem bad. All of them have different elements of good within. This is all the more reason to rely totally and thoroughly on Me to show the way. Sometimes bad is couched within the good. Sometimes wrong is couched within the right. What seems to be good on the outside is really a road downward to disaster. I know you have heard this and even believe it, so all the more reason to move into neutral and rest and wait on Me.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (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.” Bev Robinson
September 3, 2013. A reprieve is something you have not fully understood in your life. You see how accused criminals are acquitted of wrongdoing and set free to reenter society with no strings attached. Yet, for some reason you have not been able to grasp that idea for your own life. All you can think about is all of your past faults and failures. The truth is, you are free. Accept wholeheartedly My forgiveness of sin through My death, burial and resurrection. It is completed and you are exonerated. Walk freely.
John 8:36 (NLT) “So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.” Kevin Robinson
September 2, 2013. Almost everyone I know, including our nation, is experiencing an attack from the pits of hell. He has found your soft spot and is focusing in on this weakness that seems to assure his victory to kill, steal and destroy. I say unto you today, stand on your most holy faith. Take your stand in faith in such a way as to assure a victory over the enemy. Stop feeling sorry for yourself because you are under attack. Nothing good is accomplished by feeling sorry for yourself. Fight back!
1 Peter 5:9 (NLT) “Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your Christian brothers and sisters all over the world are going through the same kind of suffering you are.” Ras Robinson
September 2, 2013. It has been said that you have a wicked heart. My child, My precious one, you did, but now you don’t. You had a wicked heart before it was given over to Me. When you gave Me your heart, it immediately became supple and desired to do all I said. At times it has become hardened again because you resisted My will, but when you repented it became immediately supple and tender again to Me and those around you. Keep listening with your heart. I am speaking to your heart.
Ezekiel 36:26 (AMP) “A new heart will I give you and a new spirit will I put within you, and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” Bev Robinson
September 2, 2013. Are you in a state of denial? When you hear or read the scripture found in Matthew 24, which talks about no one knowing the day or hour of My return, does it sink into your core being of the urgency of spreading My Gospel? Become aghast of how short time really is. When you look at the fields which are white unto harvest, do you become horrorstruck? Live every moment as if My return is today. Share My love and usher people toward true knowledge of Me as Lord.
Matthew 24:44 (NKJV) “Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” Kevin Robinson
