This was written in 2011 and I was prompted by God to edit and continue to speak to us about getting to the root and heart of the matter. May God illuminate as his presence abides in us. Open the eyes of our heart God!
Cracked, Broken and Beyond Repair…
There is Hope For Your Future!
I received three visions all pertaining to releases, advances, and not looking back.
I will continue to declare your year of release and reversals! We declare that the favor of God is upon us, now is the set time. The set time has come.
I have gone through so much I wonder why and how I am still alive. I lost everything, and you know how people love to talk, when they hear things like you are sick, have no money or disabled etc.
People, especially those with the Christian label, love to judge us. These judge us for the very suffering that prepares us to carry the light into the world.
The only thing I know is, I am a broken cracked vessel and that is all. Being somewhat in a remote region and having very few who are here or near has been hard. I am just waiting for God to be established soon.
When we wonder about suffering we need to remember the prophets of old. The Bible is our example of suffering.
Seriously, who has prayed for us all this time we experienced?
What is the LORD’s will in our lives?
When ALL seemingly have forsaken us and through blinding tears in mustard seed faith we speak, God says, HE will lift us up!
You know even when a brother sins, we should be mindful of God’s grace. In understanding the story of Noah when his two sons covered up his nakedness, only two of them were respectful and covered him. One son disrespected their passed-out drunk father. That speaks volumes to me. (Read Genesis 9.)
Where is the respect toward the people of God?
We all are part of the body and each need to be in our part. Why isn’t there respect even when leaders fail and life eats away at all of us?
We have learned to hide and keep everything to ourselves. We have learned to put on our religious masks and live in hypocrisy and pride.
Life has a way of stripping us to reveal the real deal. Religion is not Christianity. Religion is a return to bondage. We find the real life of a believer in God’s Word. There are many examples of life and failure in there.
I seemingly have wandered aimlessly many years, and as serious as I can be, I would rather have died than to have gone on being aimless. God knows our hearts, and we don’t even know that about our own self!
The LORD’s releases and reversals are not dependent on our spiritual activity, or lack of, but on HIM who mapped the way for our feet to go. He has gone on before us.
What I have found evident in my own life, has been suffering. Why is this part of service to the LORD hidden and so despised and embarrassed?
We ALL go through this process. He takes broken vessels and uses them!
We all go through hard things and the process of being broken is used for our good. These things are known by God and when we are placed in the wine press, the precious juice is taken from the vine and then processed through time into a vintage only the master knows when to unveil.
I am alarmed with the rising of cults, new agers, those who have a flowery image of the walk of faith. They say God is love, so eat and drink be merry.
They do not believe in hell, and they state that we are trouble makers and of the old order, and they are new order. They believe in NO negatives. This doctrine is in many churches, even spirit filled churches.
Sin is still sin and God’s Word is still HIS Word! God has not changed!
There is such mixture in beliefs that are contrary to the Holy Bible. We need to know for ourselves! We cannot depend, or trust anyone!
That means ministers, friends, feelings or signs, wonders and all sorts of feelings including those that seem so real. God’s word is the final authority.
False prophets manipulate and control feelings! You must beware of feelings like anointings that seem real. Feelings are deceitful!
If we don’t base our salvation in Jesus Christ only we are in deep trouble. To have God in our lives is to have a personal relationship with him.
We must KNOW GOD’s WORD for ourselves! We must discern and understand ourselves! I don’t care how it feels or sounds.
This is life and death beloved! I cannot compromise! We must cleave to God’s Word like it is our life preserver because it is!
We must learn and read the BIBLE ourselves. Why am I so adamant?
Why am I so animated and serious?
Why? When we die we will each stand before God to see if we accepted Jesus as our savior or rejected him.
Do not trust or depend on another person’s experience of salvation regardless if they are a minister or famous! We must cast all of our cares on the LORD and ask Him to lead us into truth.
Ephesians 4 Five-fold ministers! Listen! How are leaders to prepare the flock of this condition and generation?
How do we protect the spiritual babies and the adolescents we are responsible and accountable for?
We must prepare these with the utmost degree of care and love for we will answer for their souls. These young ones are under subjection until they are of full age to understand. As leaders we will give account to God for these things.
Personally what I find shocking, is how deceptive and smooth are the false ministers. Also the degree of pseudo anointing on them! In our day the scriptures are being fulfilled and applicable now!
New age is so deceptive! It feels and loves like God and those who trust in what they feel will miss truth. Faith in God is ONLY through receiving Jesus Christ our LORD period.
“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them,” 2 Corinthians 4:4.
“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,” 2 Corinthians 4:17.
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath with darkness?
But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we.
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works,” 2 Corinthians 11:12-15.
It will cost something for those who believe in Christ. There is a day coming to America where we will have to take a stand, and it will cost us our lives.
When I read my Bible, it speaks of everyone who desires to walk with God will suffer persecution and will go through fire after fire.
I don’t know how I survived so much, but this I do know, I don’t claim to be some sort of high ranking prophet, minister or anything.
Why do I shy away? Because the more I see, the less I want to do or say. I have acquired through suffering and trial the ability of being very quiet. We must study to be quiet and allow the LORD to temper us.
It takes effort and God will sure give us many opportunities to tame our tongue and the heart issues. I can see the price. It’s one thing to see it at a distance and quite another to know it intimately.
I would rather be empty of everything, cracked and broken, than to be standing in some lofty title and position of man. I don’t want to say a thing unless it is God. Because God gets ALL the glory!
We must learn to stay in the flow, even though we feel alone and seem to be a weirdo swimming up stream. We like salmon must press and press forward to spawn new life in the land of our ancestors.
Such suffering in life is our press, purpose, plan and timing. Once we arrive, we spawn and it is finished.
We must decide we will continue going upward against the currents. There are those currents that are demonic, we get them from people and obstacles in our flow.
We must see to be able to say a correct word in season to ourselves and others, in Jesus’ Name!
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
