The War and World of Words

Let us not assassinate our brother! Don’t get involved in the devils agenda’s; Unless you are going to confront it, bring closure and settle the matter

When we speak against our brother, we speak against ourselves!  When we are in a “group,” gossip and slander are mixed with words that kill, steal and destroy.

It matters not who should say something, even if you are silent.  We are known by the company we keep and the words we speak.  Don’t engage in a battle you can never win!

If you have the spiritual maturity, and carry weight and know better, we are accountable before God.  We must understand and beware of what we allow ourselves to listen to, and what situations we put ourselves in, speak and chat about.

Whatever means of communication we use, remember the enemy will line up to the content, long enough to make us think we are hearing the real deal!  The Word of God is always the real deal!  Line up to that!

Once that happens, we have opened the door against ourselves and others that may not understand!  The one with the maturity, ends up lining up with the deception, then once that happens, we speak words that we have no business speaking.  When we curse with our words we are doing the devils business and he sits up watching this horrid civil war with glee!

Learn to look at the root cause in a brother and in this war of words.  Realize that person really didn’t mean what they said!  Know a brother by his or her consistency as a follower of Christ.

Know them by their words and fruits; Fruits of the Spirit, and fleshly fruits.  It takes time to know a persons consistency in Christ.  As we grow in maturity we begin to see various levels.  We can recognize levels we once walked in.

Before honor comes humility.  All Honor belongs to Him who sits on the throne! He is able to abase those that are haughty, and pride comes before a fall.

  1. Our growth to child-likeness, is our end result with God!
  2. We will cast our crowns at his feet one day.
  3. We grow to places of service through humility. He must increase and we decrease!
  4. Innocence through humility! I ask God to Keep me innocent so I remain humble.

This walk is the opposite to our secular lives.  Everyone says to be an over achiever, climb the ladder of success no matter how many heads you step or stomp on!  The kingdom of God is opposite.  It is ALL about Him!

The growth we achieve through this natural world is nothing, compared to our inheritance which is stored up in heaven.  We came into this world with nothing, and we will exit with nothing.  That inheritance is eternally stored up as HE lives through us!

The object is to host the LORD on the throne of our heart.  What an honor we have!  To host the King of Kings and LORD of LORDs on our very own heart!

To HIM who sits on the throne and unto the Lamb, be blessings, glory, honor and power forever!

As we abide in the Word of God, by reason of use, our senses are exercised to discern good and evil.  Beloved of God, we can learn a lot by watching, being silent and listening!  There is wisdom in silence as we listen for His still, small voice.

God must be able to trust us before he releases us to minister to others.  We will die a thousand deaths.  We are supposed to die daily to our flesh.  Picking up our cross and following HIM everyday. As a friend shared with me, “we are dead men walking.”  Dying to self does not appeal to the flesh of man.  However we learn, grow and know it is part of Gods plan for us.

We ALL fall and mess up.  Don’t cut off a brother unless the LORD moves you away from them.  It does not mean something is wrong with you or with them!  He moves us to where we will fit the best.  Some friends don’t last in your life.

YES, Satan sets us up for a fall.  Many times our adversary just goes along with the program until he gains our authority.  Yes!  The enemy gains ground in our lives when we let him.  He wants us to give our authority to his agenda.  So who has the power?

The devil is no dummy, he has had centuries of people to practice on.  Once he does the deed, and we fall for it then WE release the poison through our words.  WE must repent as quickly as we can once we realize what we have done. Then we cast him out of the entire situation.

Initiate closure and peace to all, no matter who was used by the enemy.  All of us at one time or another can be used by the devil.  Show mercy and kindness, and soon others will show it to you when you fall into the trappings of Satan.  Look at the example of Peter, when Jesus recognized Satan voice in the disciple.  Jesus did not throw Peter away, He rebuked the devil!


Study the bible about words.  Study what God thinks about gossip, slander, tongue and mouth.  There are many other topics that can be used to fuel a Spiritual Civil War among us.

Let us not assassinate our brother!  Don’t get involved in the devils agenda’s; Unless you are going to confront it, bring closure and settle the matter.  Amen?

As God takes you further into ministry there will be fewer people on your path.  He increases and we decrease.  Not everyone can just hang out as you mature in the LORD.  Why?  God takes his special vessels and places them where He can trust them to be. He has tested them over and over again before he releases them.

Please don’t be offended that they cannot be where you are.  If truly known, they wish at times, could hang out.  There is a plan they were presented with by God and they accepted it.  Depending on the task of Gods plans, it can be a most lonesome path especially when you love people and are extroverted.

Yet these love the LORD so much, they have laid down their lives for him eternally.

We must offer up ourselves as living sacrifice’s to the LORD.  We learn to lay our lives down on the altar and remain there abiding in the presence of God.  We have learned by experience to ask that our tongue and mouth be filled with coals of fire.

Do you think everyone can abide there?  There are many levels in the kingdom and each just as important with different responsibilities.  Not everyone can go where you go.

God may require something from you that others can do freely, but you cannot.  Measure yourselves against the Word of God.  Stand against the wall as a plumbline, he will make you line up to his will.

Jesus wants our attention and he is jealous over us.  He wants to be our best friend regardless of the cost.  Oh to know Him as he is known, to experience Him in this life as He is!  Amen?  Amen!

The Final, Last Lap

In acceleration, time and spirit will greatly increase! There shall be signs, wonders and miracles and everyone that witnesses it will marvel.

Yesterday evening as I worshiped God, I felt a presence come near my left arm and shoulder and it’s touch was like electric.  Then a few moments later, I saw an angel about a few feet in front of me and the angel had young man looking features.

What I was so amazed with was he had a big smile on his face.  It made me feel so loved, excited and encouraged to see this.  I worshiped and praised God for this visitation.

As I continued to praise God, I saw the angel take two flags in his hands.  One was white and the other was black and white checkered and he took the flags and crossed them in front of me.  Then I heard the Spirit of the LORD….

“Like a grand marshal, My angel has been sent to you with My message.  You have been seasoned and prepared for this last great final race beloved, put your seat belts on and Rev up your engines!

The time of release and greatest acceleration is at hand!  The previous methods of transport are superseded now!  The flags are waved, you are released!  Go beloved go!  Says the LORD!”

I do not know anything about racing and did not know what the colors of the flags meant and I looked it up on the internet and found this.

White flag is shown when the lead driver begins the race’s final lap.  Checkered flag is the most famous flag and it is waved when the winner crossed the finish line, (See NASCAR Racing Flags).

We have entered the final lap beloved and we are breaking speeds as our acceleration continues unlike the world has ever known.  The race car represents ministry.  The acceleration in speed represents how quickly time as we know it, is running out.

I also know this part of the race has strong biblical meaning and historic timing, even of heaven.  I also saw such a large speedway and in the grand stands I knew I was seeing the great cloud of witnesses watching us race and cheering as we come into the final stages before the return of the LORD.

The previous race cars or ways of ministry are superseded with new methods and ways to reach out to win the lost.  For this is the final in gathering of harvest before the LORD returns.

“There are many manifestations as people react to My saving Power and glorify ME, says the LORD!  There will be such manifestations that those who witness them will know they have encountered the power of God!

Many shall be saved because of it!  Yes, and these will immediately begin to preach, shout and dance in the streets.  These shall be consumed with end-time FIRE!  Says the LORD of Host!

In acceleration, time and spirit will greatly increase!  There shall be signs, wonders and miracles and everyone that witnesses it will marvel.

However with some, they will see the evidence in front of them and refuse to accept it.  Just as the religious leaders could not accept that I healed the man born blind.”

Many shall witness the power of God as it will radiate as aura’s of light; Yes light will shine in the faces of the people like the angels.  Many shall wonder the meaning through this, yet those that witness it will know they encountered God and are saved by it.

We must be careful that we all take our concerns to God in prayer and not judge, criticize or attribute the works of the LORD to Satan, for that is blasphemy.  The same religious spirit is still at work in the earth. Jesus confronted it, and just understand we will too.

Our response?  Keep it simple!  The evidence is that many are saved, delivered and love our LORD Jesus Christ.  If we choose to judge and condemn, we may be found fighting God!  Keep it simple beloved, keep it simple!

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God,  (Hebrews 12:1-2 KJV).

“And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation,”   Luke 19:44 KJV.

“Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into,”   1 Peter 1:12 KJV.

“And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone; for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought; But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God,”   Acts 5:38-39 KJV.

“Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men; but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.  And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him; but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come,”   Matthew 12:31-32.

The Urgency of the Quest

I miss our times of innocence romping through the fields and flowers beloved. Oh how I desire to spend intimacy with those that love and choose Me

“I have set before you an open door.  Why do you stand between and betwixt?  Do not fear where I AM taking you.  No man will be able to stop you unless you let them.  You have but little strength but I AM showing myself strong against those who are your enemies.

As you have said, “I have no strength to do this” yet you shall be victorious, you have kept my word and haven’t denied my name.  Those who have pretended to be My people and lie, they will know that I love thee.

I have sought for you in our secret place.  Where is the intimacy, the time you once could not wait for?  I AM jealous and I miss our quality time.  You must plan as your enemy will try to hinder that time.

In that place of intimacy you know My heart and mind.  In that place I abide with you and I speak secrets and share things to those who are fully given unto me.

Trust is a big issue.  How can I trust you to minister to others when you haven’t been there for me?  You must TAKE time, not make time.  You must plan and not let anyone or anything keep you from your beloved.  Guard and keep our relationship as the most important part of your life.

I created you for My pleasure, for my purposes.  I desire to walk with you in the cool of the day.  I have emotions just as you, and my feelings are hurt when you walk away from me. You go everywhere else except coming to me.

Keep me as the lover of your soul.  My heart breaks when I see there is no time for me.  Yes, I AM eternal God, but you are my finest and best creation.  I did not lie or beg you to come with Me.  You accepted my free gift.  Why now do you crowd me out of your lives and business?  Why don’t you respect My boundaries?  Why do you idolize your phones and friends?

I miss our times of innocence romping through the fields and flowers beloved.  Oh how I desire to spend intimacy with those that love and choose Me.

From that deep relationship in Me comes the overflow you want.  As you choose to know Me in a deeper way, My nature and character will spring up like an artesian well.  In your life, no one can truly know Me unless they see my evidence in you.  Beloved, the two become one is a mystery, but it shouldn’t be a mystery with you.

Are you ashamed to let others know your busy, when they want your time?  Do you love me and spend time with ME?  I chose to limit myself in the lives of My people as they know My Word and learn about me.  It doesn’t take long once you truly know a person to see what they are after.  Pull away My love, pull away!

Learn to respect My boundaries and others.

Can you wait one hour?  You walk around and get side tracked!  I AM here to be your lover, friend and I want to share secrets and just know you!

I see how prayer with Me has changed into another thing.  You use to trust Me and now you depend on each other, instead of coming before Me yourself.  Even prayer meetings can be turned into an idol when you no longer depend on your own personal intimate time with Me,”  says the LORD.

“Why do I have to continually remind you to come closer?  Yes, I want you to be child like, however there are times I want to share deep things with those whom I trust.  I shouldn’t have to ask.

You must practice My presence.  Queen Esther practiced the Kings presence and was honored and because of her obedience to her King, she saved all of Israel.

You have been held back for this particular season and hidden.  I see your frustrations.  I know you see others moving on a different path and wonder why your way is hidden.  You have been held back seemingly forever, however I have saved you as a weapon in My arsenal for My time.  Take no offenses, for this is My purpose and plan.  Take no offenses of those who are no longer part of your particular path.

There are those pockets of people coming out of hiding and coming from such heartache however, these have learned, to die is to live.  Jealousy is not a threat to these as I have refined them through time and by skimming off the lee’s.

There will be select ones who will be able to change and scale various levels of the mountain of the LORD at will.  These will have a global view and able to meet and understand people where they are at.  Bless these beloved, the cost and the loss many can never comprehend Yes, plus these know the urgency of the quest.”

“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know they works; behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it; for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.  Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou has kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.  Behold, I come quickly: hold fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God; and I will write upon him my new name.  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches,”   Revelation 3:7-13 KJV.

Guarding the Gift and the Giver

I saw such a precious vision: I see the LORD taking the hand of his children and as they walk they look up to Jesus with such a smile, innocence and wonderment in their eyes

Come unto me and know that you can trust me.  Don’t you know that I AM rooting for you! 

I AM encouraging you to continue the race set before you!  I AM for you not against you.

There is no boxing in My Kingdom.  You won’t fit in boxes, nor fight in those boxes.  You cannot box me in with your view of things.  Nor will I allow you to fight one another divisively.  I will make sure you don’t.  Lay down the religion and traditions you hold dear and seek Me and live!

I do not manifest myself to all people the same way.  Nor manifest to others the way I do with you.  I prepare people through time in the furnace of afflictions.  Live up to what you have attained in Me.  For that is what you are held accountable for.

There are those like Paul, who in his religious mindset, thought by killing Christians he was helping Me, says the LORD.  Had it not been according to his ignorance he could have been held accountable for all those he killed.  I declared to him and others after his conversion that he was a chosen vessel unto me to bear My Name and that he would suffer greatly for My name sake.

To each one is given the measure of grace for gift.  I cannot manifest Myself to everyone the same, for each gift has instructions and requirements that not all can handle or understand.  Remember My children, I have known you from before the very foundation of the world.  Being accountable and responsible for those gifts, requires My grace.

Not everyone will walk with you due to My purpose and plan.  Quit trying to fit into religious boxes.  I have released end-time strategy into those chosen to receive it.  There are only certain people I can trust with My secrets, presence by My grace.  Had they not been prepared in the furnace of affliction or in the wilderness and caves, they would be lifted up with pride and fall.

I prepare My vessels over and over to be able to carry My glory.  The vessel is empty without Me.  These that are prepared to show forth My glory, shall host My presence as they welcome all into My presence and plan.

Not all have the gifts of prophecy and not all function as the lungs or heart of the body.  Yes, many are hidden from view, but these are just as needed and more so! The body must function in union.  There are outward gifts that all can see, but it doesn’t mean they are greater.

In fact they are lessor, for they decrease and I increase.  No one thinks about the blood in the body.  It is like a river that goes into all places to nourish the parts of the body they are sent too.  Many are like that blood.  These carry nutrition and spread the messages and purposes linking together the whole body.  They connect and are hidden, but their purposes are vital to the working of MY whole body.

Understand and don’t be frustrated that others won’t seek Me the way you do.  Also don’t be frustrated when they are lead in a different way.  You cannot expect everyone to understand you.  Each part will understand their own way as I reveal their anointing to others of like mind.

I have given to each in the body, My grace according to the measure of My gift.  Do not lump everyone into your own experiences.  Let them alone as they function in My name.  These are My vessels of honor fit for My use, not your use.

Not all are prophets, lungs or blood in the body.  Not all have the same function.  Don’t measure or pressure them to put on your gift and mantle.  They belong to me not you.  Those gifts that are outward, public ministry must decrease.

Yes there are some even outwardly that need to be covered with clothing as they are naked before me.  You shall be naked and transparent and not afraid, says the LORD.

Those that are hidden parts of My body are more needful.  Not everyone can do what you do.  Don’t judge according to your experiences.  You do what I give you.  If people demand you to follow them, don’t!

If there are those who trouble you saying that you don’t meet their requirements.  LISTEN to ME says the LORD.  I gather those of like heart mind and Spirit together all over the world.  These are the parts of the body that fit together.

I came to My own and My own knew Me not.  They made my house a den of thieves and corrupted man and proselytizes them to be worse than they are.  I looked over Jerusalem and wept for My city.  They did not recognize Me as you must do also.

Yes, weep for them and move on.  They don’t recognize Me through you.  Move on to where the highways and byways take you.  Go outside of the box of religion and traditions and go to where the people are!  You are to function in what I gave you!  You are so important to Me beloved.

I saw such a precious vision: I see the LORD taking the hand of his children and as they walk they look up to Jesus with such a smile, innocence and wonderment in their eyes.  They are enjoying and listening to Jesus.

As the seasons change in life, My love will remain.  I will never let you go.  Be child like, be like a little child with Me.  Kings still have daughters and they are precious and will inherit their portion.

Your history precedes you and others may know your past, however, I have chosen to wipe it all away.  Man may reject you, but look to Me!  I will never reject you beloved of God!  If all men turn against you, be confident!  I AM here and will never leave you or forsake you My beloved children.

Why do you compare yourselves among yourselves? I see how you try to fit in. You are unique and precious. Don’t play the games, “who can top this!” This is not a game or a worldly way I do things.

To be great, you become a servant.  The first shall be last the last shall be first. Yes, do glean from others fields of ministry and learn from them.  I will send them to you, but understand not all will go or be with you permanently.  When you learn the lessons from them, I will move you on to others.  Each has their own relationship with Me and accountable to me for it.

The time at hand is serious!  The clock is chiming to be ready to go.  Even the birds of the air know the signs of the times but My people do not.  My people need to be readied.
There will be those that say in that day: “LORD, LORD haven’t we prophesied in thy name and done mighty works in they name and I will say to them depart from Me ye that work iniquity.”

The Levites portion is the LORD and his temple.  These eat and are provided for as they minister about the temple.  Please do not go through the motions.  The time is at hand and many are still not ready.  Prepare the people to know Me and show them I AM the way, the truth and the life.

Hear what I say beloved; I want you in intimacy in the Kings bed chamber.  You must guard our intimate time and not share our secrets.  Why have you invited people into that sacred place with Me?

I want you there alone beloved.  My bed is undefiled and pure.  How can you be intimate when there are people all around that have invaded our intimate space?

This sacred place is pure and I will have you there and speak secrets to only you.  I will not share you with anyone else.  I AM a jealous God.  Don’t let anyone into that private personal intimate place with Me.

You have given place to people even letting them come into our bedchamber.  Beloved come away with ME.  You have allowed others to have a say that has brought division between us.  These things disrespect and desecrate our time of intimacy.

How can you become impregnated with vision if others are desecrating our intimacy?  For to desecrate is to treat My sacred place with disrespect and violate our communion alone.

Put no trust and guard against voices that would try to desecrate our intimacy and never let them into that sacred, secret place again, says the LORD.

See also Luke 23 and Ephesians 4.
