Guard the Gift!

You will clearly see and know those who are with and for you on the battlefield. In times of trouble, accusations and silence is when you come to know who really remains with and for you.

You will clearly see and know those who are with and for you on the battlefield.

In times of trouble, accusations and silence is when you come to know who really remains with you and for you.

It isn’t those fly by night; those unreliable, untrustworthy that offer strange fire from some common source instead of My fire of incense says the LORD!

“And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.  And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD,”   Leviticus 10:1-2 KJV.

There are many impostors, pretenders, fakes who think they can take a place with My beloved and remain to draw them away from ME?

Beloved, guard the gift!

There are vile persons, those whose motives are deeply set.  These know and take upon themselves to plot and scheme to take control of the gifts you carry.

If they cannot control you, these will seek to destroy your reputation, character, nature and even kill your body.  Woe be unto these who target My flock!

“Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD,”   Jeremiah 23:1 KJV.

Beloved guard the flock, there are many religious that have come, but not from ME, says the LORd

Rare are they who come with right motives.  You are to KNOW those who labor among you! Watch and pray and destroy the works of the devil!

There are those that gravitate to what is popular.  Everyone loves being the center of attention. However the higher you go the lower you go in your estimation.

However being popular with God means you have absolutely nothing you stand on in the flesh.  You have made ME your everything!

I will not and cannot violate trust in My chosen!  I AM no respecter of persons and I Will not violate My Word says the LORD.

There’s a Coming Together!

The LORD says: “My element in timing, MY government is being set in order on MY shoulders. These shall have major releasing! Those that were like a trickle being hidden I AM releasing the dam to flood.”

Vision:

While I was praying, off in the distance outside somewhere, I saw a huge body like a statue being prepared from bottom to top.

I saw scaffolding and various apparatuses used to build and secure the structure of the great body.  I saw the work with scaffolding upon the body “like” the statue of liberty when she was being maintained and upgraded from the many seasons exposure, to the elements.

I saw people building up the body.  These have blood bought legal contracts that allowed them to function in their positions.  Each person had a specific area to be in and remain in.

These people used words, time, price, to amend devices and discord.  The body looked almost finished from my perspective.  However as I came closer, I saw the many cracks and damage that needed to be fixed and finished outwardly.

I watched even closer as the work at the head had started to a much greater degree.  There looked to be about 15% of the workers at the top.  These were those with end-time revelation; these were coming to support the neck and head.

Not all could climb to the neck and head.  There is insight that is Top Secret; Each of those at the top were there by direct revelation from God with codes of end times.

I saw a huge dam like the Hoover Dam.  I was seeing it from up top from a distance.  Then I saw it with a trickle of water at the bottom, then suddenly as I watched, it was blasted by something, flooding the whole region.  Effecting a very large area.

Vision end.

“My element in timing, MY government is being set in order on MY shoulders. 

These shall have major releasing!  Those that were like a trickle being hidden I AM releasing the dam to flood.

I AM setting order to establish judgment and justice forever.  Says the Lord.

You have entered a time that is like none other.  For the fullness of the godhead is being established.  Governmental head apostle, prophet, pastor, teacher and evangelist.  The government is on HIS shoulders!”

“For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily,”   Colossians 2:9 KJV.

“There is coming together a people who come by direct order and revelation, through My Word.  A people that shall understand My governmental role on MY shoulders!  There is a serious time and not the time to play.

My mind and head of this governing order is coming together into My fullness.  My five-old ministers of apostle, prophet, pastor, teacher and evangelist, these shall lead and govern the great body worldwide.

The Church is coming into her finest hour!  It is the time to be in place and stay there, says the LORD.”

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon The throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever.  The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this,”   Isaiah 9:6-7 KJV.

Rules Without Relationship

You cannot expect harvest to remain by preaching hell, fire and brimstone when a person doesn’t understand the God kind of love.

You cannot expect harvest to remain by preaching hell, fire and brimstone when a person doesn’t understand the God kind of love.

Yeah, I will probably get called on that statement.  It is through His loving kindness that HE leads us to repentance.

As a woman of God, I have watched through the years and experienced these things first hand and I have NEVER known of one person remaining in Christ, when they were strong armed into fear and scared to the altar.

Fear doesn’t keep a person with God, LOVE DOES.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.  We are to be as children coming to a good, good Father!  We grow by that same principle.

For example, I watched personally a woman from years ago who came to a meeting that majored on hell, fire and brimstone.  These messages indeed were putting people into fear instead of faith.

The woman was so terrified that she ran to the altar.  Afterwards, she did what everyone told her to do.

For a few months, I watched as she tried to be perfect to please the religion.  Due to all the requirements, she got confused and burned out!  She did not understand religion and tradition.  She had no idea nor comprehended, God is Love.

The LORD had me pray for her and I watched her progress and process coming out of being a lesbian, as she asked for prayer.  I continued prayer and followed up on her.

Her motive in her confession was not love at all!  She was so afraid, and fear can never keep a person!  God’s Love and God’s fear brings wisdom!

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding,”   Proverbs 9:10 KJV.

“When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.  And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.  Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first,”   Luke 24:24-26 KJV.

The woman came to church for a while because of fear, and but ended up back worse off than she was in the beginning.

She went back to being a lesbian.  She burned out trying to be some sort of perfect religious person and went back to being a lesbian.

The woman figured God didn’t want her, because it was so hard to be able to live up to their standard (she thought was God’s standard).  So she abandoned the religion and went back to her lesbian lifestyle.

Oh the Zoe life, “the God kind of life” that brings love, hope, and peace.

Church we need to use wisdom on leading people to salvation or deliverance.  God will through His lovingkindness lead to repentance.  If the motive in coming to Christ is anything but his lovingkindness, it is wrong and it won’t keep them.

We need to pay attention to this truth.

We must be ambassadors of hope!  Fear will never keep a person for very long.  The rules and regulations are too many to count.  God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power love and a sound mind.

Either Jesus did it all, or we might as well close our doors.  None of us can do it.  It is all by faith in Christ.  To the religious we may be heretics, but in the beloved we are well know of the Father!

It is all Jesus from beginning to end.  He is Alpha and Omega, He is the beginning and the end and all there is in between!

We must teach that ‘rules without relationship equals rebellion’.  Religion makes things so hard that we can never live up to it.

It ‘religion’ attacks us when we don’t know who we are in Christ and causes us confusion and lack of peace.  Having a relationship with Christ is motivated by love. His love abides, his keeping love.

“The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying,  Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee,”   Jeremiah 31:3 KJV.

May we always reflect the nature and character of Christ.  For rules without relationship equal rebellion.  None of us can measure up!  It is all Christ from beginning to end.

AMEN!

A Prophetic Poem of Preparation for My Beloved

To my surprise along my way, it not being a typical day, He met me and took me aside in His beloved Presence I abide.

 

To my surprise along my way, it not being a typical day,
He met me and took me aside in His beloved Presence I abide.

His overwhelming Love, Peace, Serenity and Delight too
What more could his maiden want for in life is His life too

What a picnic of His delights, making me want for nothing
In this life only more and more of His Gracious care and light

Dearly beloved you may think that I do things on a whim
When I plan things ahead unknown I delight to see that your
Face shone

I draw you My beloved; I watch in my garden, My Love never
Ceases My Abiding Darling, such treasures untold that will out
Shine precious stones

When I bless My betrothed all for the delight of our
Union abode.  I AM very apt in knowing what you need when
To make you lay down by the gentle stream; Finding peace within

You feel guilty when you aren’t “doing” something with your day.
When I plan a day of such peace and comfort, who can deny such
Love and romance with MY beloved.

You cannot be whole, rested, mended and stable for our next
Round of assignments that come if you cannot learn to trust
That I Am He that prepares you thoroughly even through rest
And relaxation with peace

For I know the time for war and the time of rest is just as
Important as all the rest.  I know what your life needs and
Entails and understands all of your tests and trials.

Faithful I AM and faithful I be in preparing My beloved with
All of these.  As you learn to trust I will prepare you in advance
For all those trial and test you take.

Beloved I AM here and will be always be there, for I always
Provide My constant loving care.

The Chime, Role Call & Governmental Authority

The LORD says: No one can carry the price I have on your life. They absolutely cannot pay the price you have, but these want what you have, without the price!

Vision

I saw a woman who was standing in a field.  The clouds were ominous and suddenly a draft opened up, like a tornado but this was no ordinary tornado.

The hole opened and the suction lifted the woman up yet, with no fear.  She was rising up being transported upward through raging storm clouds but she rose up through what looked like a tunnel of various clouds.

She understood she was being carried by angels whom their presence and purpose was like a blanket of peace unlike anything earthly.

She seemed to be carried in slow motion from earth’s perspective yet with such peace and security she continued to rise from first heaven then second heavens.

Rising through the clouds and upward through the second heavens, suddenly the clouds were dissipated!

In wonderment she understood what she beheld in her open vision!  Suddenly the breakthrough opened up a panoramic view of the heavens into the third heavens as clouds dissipated from behind.

In the distance she saw the celestial city, Mount Zion on the on the sides of the north; the city of the our great King!

As she was carried in wonderment, she began to see from a distance in vivid colors like the rainbow.  She already understood that the city is prepared and adorned for His beloved Bride, as He promised.

He whispered in her spirit, “Listen beloved, I AM coming soon!”

For His beloved Bride there are no words to describe the beauty, glory and majesty that He has created and promised to her.  The beauty of holiness shines so clear as crystal, nothing is hidden, for the light is pure and clear.  The purity and grandeur of light never fails.

Knowingly, the woman knew she had to tell as many as she can to be ready for this event; for it is coming quickly.  For the Spirit and the Bride say come!

“And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God,”   Revelation 21:2-3 KJV.

“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, [and] the bright and morning star. And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come.  And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely,”   Revelation 22:16-17 KJV.

“Ask of Me and all of the levels to bring breakthrough into the heavenly visions and purpose.

I AM sounding My chime.  The time as you now know it will be changed.  In an instant, in a twinkling of the eye, you shall be changed.

Regardless beloved, people will not understand.  Let not the less you see, be less of Me.

Let no man ride on your winds and benefits they see; for they do not truly want Me,” says the LORD.

Vision

I see a colorful carousel with horses going up and down as they circle around.

These who continue to play by thinking they are mighty warriors with trusted steeds are fabricating mere child’s play, to pretend that what they do is enough.

All of them pretend, as they go round and round, going nowhere – always ending up at the same conclusion, that they can’t get beyond that point.

I see teeter-totter child’s play again, going up and down, up and down and never balanced; unstable souls.

“The more you enter into your rightful place in heaven on earth, the less that go with you.

Beloved I have warned you.  You have watched those who vie for position, who seek to make themselves something are eager to become first in alignment.

However, I don’t play by the rules and regulations!  I choose whom I will.

I delight in underdogs.  So I take those from the back of the line who have patiently waited even unto death and display My grace and glory through them,” says the LORD!

“No one can carry the price I have on your life.  They absolutely cannot pay the price you have, but these want what you have, without the price!

These seek to being around in hopes to be able to rub off your anointing.  If these could see the price, these would you run!”  says the LORD!

“The enemy thought he had you bound, and there are those powers that be, who think you are a threat, AND YOU ARE!  My hidden warrior’s shall emerge as the surge of a storm wave.  The last shall be first and the first last,”  says the LORD!

“No matter how quiet it gets, know that I AM with you and I AM for you. 

The spiritual fog you are in tests your resolve to stay the course even in the midst of mist.  While spiritual fog challenges every leader and person, due to not seeing or hearing anything can quickly develop discontent with a mutiny in motion,”   says the LORD!

“Be transparent, develop and set boundaries.

Discern the spirit and not the person, don’t allow them to rub off of you.

Don’t touch, or say, just walk away.

Those who love Me are well known regardless if they are in trouble at the moment.  When I discipline My children it is for their sake.  Don’t speak against others troubles or you will be next!”

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this,”   Isaiah 9:6-7 KJV.

“There is coming together a people who by revelation through My Word shall understand My governing authority.  My governmental head and power is on MY shoulders! 

There will also be a greater responsibilities and a great seriousness of this hour.  Don’t touch what you don’t understand,”  says the LORD!

“My mind and head of this governing order is coming together into My fullness. 

My five-fold ministers of apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers and evangelists, prepare My people for works of service and in this hour there shall be a cohesion among the ranks.

These shall lead and govern My people and the world.  The Church is coming into her finest hour!  It is the time to be in place,”  says the LORD!

The authority within the gifts of the spirit are not what is said here.  For instance, there is a major difference when one is a governing prophet, or has the gift of prophecy for the church that encourages, comforts and exhorts.

“But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort,”   1 Corinthians 14:3.

You are entering a time that is like no other.  For the fullness of the Godhead is being established.

Governing head apostles, Governing head pastors, Governing head teachers and Governing head evangelists;  the government is on HIS shoulders!

“For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily,”   Colossians 2:9 KJV.

“Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.  (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?  He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive,”   Ephesians 4:8-14 KJV.

Silence ~ The Communication Of Assurance

In our relationship with the LORD, prayer is foundational.  We cannot know or learn to hear the Great Creator, without knowing and learning to hear His voice.

In our relationship with the LORD, prayer is foundational.  We cannot know or learn to hear the Great Creator, without knowing and learning to hear His voice.

“For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened,”   Romans 1:17-21 KJV.

Babies are totally dependent on their caregiver for a set time of days.  A baby has no idea what they have received when they enter this new world.  Babies have entered a new environment and cry to make it fully known.

Babies know instinctively when they are hungry and how to suck.  Their underdeveloped brain grows throughout their days; but the process of learning and knowing how to communicate starts at birth.

Babies cry and they make noises that let us know what they need; we learn to understand crying and other sounds of a baby.  For instance, there is a certain pitch to crying; the baby learns it can cause mommy to come quickly to meet that sound.

As children grow and change; along with sounds and words, we must understand what are learned behaviors.

Our children are a reflection of us.  Hard to swallow sometime, but they were a product of our environment.  Whether good or bad.  My intent here is not to bring condemnation.

Yes, these blessed little tykes, along with words and behavior, can manipulate or try to manipulate and control adults.  Yes, they grow as we grow; the good, bad and the ugly.  Throughout all of the temper tantrums holding their breath and other learned behaviors, yes we grow!

As the children’s brain develops, they learn from all environments.  To be in a good environment is essential and also a good Christian role model at home.  Children need to be monitored as they start school and the parents start trusting and giving a portion of their authority over to teachers.

The environment that school’s role plays is ongoing.  Along with home life, these children will always be developing levels of learning.  All throughout life we are giving more and more authority away.

As parents, we need to prepare our children for taking care of their own life, work, family etc..  We parents are taught to discipline our children according to God’s Word.

The bible is clear on child like behavior including discipline.  We can spoil our children rotten as parents.  We should know the difference biblically, in understanding what is loving discipline and correction when they need it.  You spare the rod, you spoil the child.

“He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes,” Proverbs 13:24 KJV.

“Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him,” Proverbs 29:13 KJV.

“The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame,”   Proverbs 29:15 KJV.

Mistakes are made in our lives, “As far as the east is to the west he remembers our transgressions no longer,” (Psalms 103:12 KJV).  We may have found the LORD later in life.  However, when our children are grown into adults, they make their own decisions.

No matter how we want to intervene, they are grown and we are not able to discipline them or change them through any effort.  The only thing we can do is pray and intercede for them as adults.

An adult child left to himself, doing wrong things still have consequences.  As adults you make your own choices.  That is a free gift given you by God.  God lent us our children for a for a few precious years, then once they are grown, they answer for their own decisions.

For example, if you sell drugs, hurt someone or steal things etc. you will face consequences. Not from parents, but laws were put into existence by God for public order and safety.

When we become adults we are now responsible for our own choices and what authority we have in our lives.  If you break the law you lose your freedom and you are on your way to jail.

I have NO idea why I am writing about all of this, but I trust that God does.

I had a vision in prayer and I saw a small brain like a child’s brain.  Then I watched as the brain superimposed over the skull and was suddenly within, I saw the brain fan out within increasing space with knowledge and understanding.

As I watched it fan out; I understood the brain began to bring new understanding, intelligence and hunger for more information and especially the desire for knowing God.

Within each person, God has given us free choice and will.  God can never lie.  He stands at the door of our heart and knocks.  We must choose to open that door.  He CANNOT make you want Him.  You must take your authority and literary choose this day who will you serve.

We always will remain developing and learning!  As adults we will be growing in our choices and environments in life until we die.  Life is exactly that!

We develop as Christians as we learn about him in His Word, prayer and through fellowship with other believers.  We all continue to use our choices to choose both good and bad.

Also we choose by our free will by giving up a portion of our authority to learn in obedience to His Word!  Giving up and surrendering to God is the best thing I ever did in life.  To know Him is to love Him and his desires are not grievous to us.

“Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby,”   Hebrews 12:11 KJV.

“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous,”   1 John 5:3 KJV.

We all have different roles all throughout life, and we become what we want to learn and apply ourselves to.

Having a relationship in God is foundational.  To have a relationship also means to know and to communicate.

As we choose to abide in this relationship with the LORD, it causes us to grow deeper in love with our God.  We communicate by our actions and behavior for we have learned to know Him and how He thinks.

Silence can also be communication and assurance of that relationship.

You can sit in a silent room hearing no word yet knowing the word as he abides with you.  Have you ever heard of a couple that loved each other so much, that they knew the way the other one thinks without communication?

When you become satisfied in silence; It means you know HIM and you have absolute faith, confidence and total trust in Jesus.

Some are insecure as they have not learned to discern that silence with the LORD doesn’t always mean trouble.

However that’s only the beginning. Having HIS relationship and His Word must be foremost in our lives.

When we learn to use our brain on God’s Word, we develop our brain on a higher plane by knowing the mind of Christ!

In closing, His brain works in us, if we work our brains!

Fragmentation Within The Hidden Recesses Of The Soul

As a sponge absorbs the element it is immersed in, in like manner, your lives have drawn in the good and bad with life’s many experiences.

“As a sponge absorbs the element it is immersed in, in like manner, your lives have drawn in the good and bad with life’s many experiences.

I take the sponge of your hearts and I squeeze out the old so you can hold the new.  The washing of the water of the Word brings the cleansing of soul.

The squeezing process may be painful, but it must come as the cleansing of your heart is vitally important before your heart is tender in My hand.

Yes, this is applicable to those who are spirit filled Christians!  It is a priority that My Church learn these things and how important it is to know and discern when a soul is fragmented.

I came to heal the sick and I come in many forms in season; piece by piece, failure after failure through many hardships and trials as you don on your mask in religious hypocrisy, pretending to have it all together;  driven to pseudo proof and performance and at the end of the day you wonder, ‘Is this all there is?’

There is a gnawing deep within the soul, making one wonder, ‘Will I really be able to catch up!  Am I good enough, do I have what it takes!  How do I maintain this spiritual hamsters wheel going nowhere!  How can I possibly continue what I believe when I can’t see to achieve it?’

You feel defeated, drained, discouraged and if known, wish for death!  Your reserves are running low but you keep on going because you cannot separate your facts from fiction.

The fact is when you opened that door, I came into your heart and paid once and for all; from beginning to end.  The fiction or lie is this; Now since you are a Christian, you must perform to be accepted by God, as all the others running on that hamsters wheel along with you.

You cannot make yourself any more righteous!  Beloved it is a done deal!  When you opened the door and I came in.  It is that simple beloved!  I came in and this is what is real!  I came into you and made my abode with you.

Perfection, striving, driving, jumping, running or any kind of works will never make yourself righteous!  In your frantic mind it all borders to insanity!

Seriously beloved, this has various levels of fragmentation that I want to heal.  Don’t judge or say they don’t have enough faith either.  Would I bring to the moment of birth, and not cause to bring forth?  This issue is not going away and stop sweeping it under the rug!”

“Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God,”   Isaiah 66:9 KJV.

“When I stand at the door and knock, this is my lovingkindness reaching into that scaled and built up fortress around your heart.

These walls have kept you from my very best for you.  You live, work, go to church and do all the right ‘things’ a Christian should do.  However within your regenerated heart it only just begun.  This only begins the journey; It didn’t stop there.”

You look at others who reflect seemingly perfection.  You know the truth about yourself and thoughts flood in that if the people really knew your life, they wouldn’t have anything to do with you.

You listen and learn but you don’t understand why you feel so worthless, while everyone else looks like they have it all together.  Surely you say within yourself, if they knew what I did they would run, and besides that nobody can possibly believe me!

You feel it is impossible to live a life of performance and perfection.  However, my love reaches through all those many layers, fragments and walls of a deeply wounded individual.

That amazing revelation of unconditional love and acceptance is overwhelming!  That amazing grace and mercy reaches through all the hurt and pain, getting to the heart of the matter.

It is my lovingkindness that leads to repentance so open that door, trust and let me in.  This is the beginning to a healthy soul and body.  However, you must trust and open the door.  I will come in and be with you forever.

It is my lovingkindness that makes such a pledge with promise.  It is through that love, you are overwhelmed.”

Prior, while in that broken place; you can become calcified.  This process can take a lot of time and break down your own defense walls within.  As the Lord wants you to be like a fortified city.

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.  To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches,”   Revelations 3:20-21 KJV.

“The contaminations of this world are reflected in the sponge.  Like that sponge, it wipes and cleans the surface of humanity, therefore fear not!  I will immerse and squeeze your hearts into deeper, clean water.

I go into the deepest details of your lives.  I know the motives and see the afflictions of your hearts.  Beloved child of mine, know that I AM so very familiar with how you shield and cover your heart from others.  However, I see it plainly.

You have run away so many times; you cannot out run me!  I AM where you are.  I AM with you waiting for you to come to understand my mercy and grace towards you.”

Religion motivated by pride will not tolerate weakness in those who fall behind or those who fall by the wayside.

These who end up on the floor looking up are judged by the very system they served.  This system they thought was right, failed.

Now as the religious system judges our fallen comrade, then they accuse for not having enough faith or determination. In religious pride, these cross the road and walk on by.

You have striven and driven yourself so far, that you fall out in total exhaustion and burnout.  You feel like a failure as you couldn’t keep up with religious mindsets and activities.

Therefore you are known by others as not good enough, and you spiral downward into the pit of despair and depression.  You sacrificed your physical lives on the altar of man’s works, accomplishments, accolades and seemingly success.

Surly you think your friends will call and check in with you!  Then, all of your friends with that religious house, turn away from you and continue the process, as these do what the religion says.

Actually the one left on the side of the road was closer to truth than that whole lot of religious hypocrisy!  (Note Luke 10:31-37 KJV)

The fallen man learned from experience, that God’s grace and mercy covered him to care for him.  The good Samaritan brought hope to the man and met his needs.  God’s grace never fails.  The man was met with mercy and grace!  Little did he know, that his life was going to forever change!  it was actually good news for that man!

“I AM with you and each time you go around the mountain, you question me, ‘Why do I always end up in the same place year after year?  Why the same patterns year after year?’

I AM not a superficial God, and you will not be superficially healed.  I AM doing a deeper work, a lasting work.

A painful work of getting to the nitty-gritty of things.  You have read that you must lay the ax at the root of the tree.

I AM getting to the root issues of your lives.  Yes, I have heard your thoughts asking; ‘Why do I still keep going around that mountain?’

I AM making you qualified to carry My message by your life experiences.  I give you the ministry of healing, the healing of inner conflicts, turmoil and calamities.  The healing of deep seated emotional trauma, say the Lord.

Many in My body are sick physically and emotionally and some are in need of a physician. However much, too much ignorance is rampant in the church; and the ignorant still label those with various afflictions.

There are so many that are too afraid to ask, afraid to ask for help in the church.  So we have people who must get help outside the church, since the religious will turn away from them, then label them too.

The troubles of your life have taught you the value of patience in My presence and purpose.  You have learned by experience, you have walked through life lessons, you have rolled with the punches.  You have asked Me why?  ‘Why couldn’t you keep this from happening to me?  Why this Lord?

You are rising from the ashes and I shall crown you with credentials to minister life to the hurting.  I AM sending you to comfort all who mourn, to comfort those whose hearts are broken.

To the ruined places that have no hope; these too shall rise out of the ashes and I will give the oil of gladness instead of mourning.  I shall replace their sorrow with my joy!

These shall be clothed with the garments of praise as they rise from the ashes of despair.  I shall be glorified by their rising says your God!

I will rebuild the old ruins, I will correct their belief system.  They shall know that I AM God when I AM displayed before their eyes.

Don’t be discouraged!  I AM with you to save you! It is the deep inner working of my spirit that sealed your redemption until the day The sanctification and salvation of body, soul, (mind, will, emotions, intellect) and Spirit.  The sanctification and salvation of your marriages.

I have chosen you to serve.  Some people in My Kingdom seek designated seats of power, pushing for positions that belong to another.  These seats are for those whom it has been ordained and prepared by My Father.  Your success is your obedience to My place of position.

Value isn’t determined by power or position.  The latter of success will fall if it is not leaning on the right stone wall.  Whoever wishes to become chief among you, must become a servant.

Your value is found in My finished work in your hearts.  That value is like a pearl of great price, a nugget of earnest Spiritual investment that shall compound.  So you want to be the right hand man?

At My right hand there are pleasures forever more. Whoever has a modest opinion of himself and behaves accordingly, shall be raised to honor. Seek first the Kingdom of God and My righteousness and all these things shall be added to you.”

All of My servants in the Bible were subject to failures.  You cannot understand success without failure.  You cannot understand grace without mercy.  For My mercy seat awaits you as you come boldly to My throne room of grace.

Your failures shall work an inner work of strength and stability in the days to come.  A righteous man may fall seven times a day, but I will help him get back up”

Yes, this is applicable to those who are spirit filled Christians!  It is a priority that my church learn these things and how important it is to know and discern when a soul is fragmented.

I came to heal the sick and I come in many forms in season; piece by piece, failure after failure through many hardships and trials as you don on your mask in religious hypocrisy, pretending to have it all together;  driven to pseudo proof and performance and at the end of the day you wonder, ‘Is this all there is?

There is a gnawing deep within the soul, making one wonder, ‘Will I really be able to catch up?  Am I good enough?  Do I have what it takes?  How do I maintain this spiritual hamsters wheel going nowhere?  How can I possibly continue what I believe when I can’t achieve it?’

You feel defeated, drained, discouraged and if known, wish for death!  Your reserves are running low but you keep on going because you cannot separate your facts from fiction.

The fact is when you opened that door, I came into your heart and paid once and for all; from beginning to end.

The fiction or lie is this; Now since you are a Christian, you must perform to be accepted by God and all the others running on that hamsters wheel along with you.

You cannot make yourself any more righteous!  Beloved it is a done deal!  When you opened the door and I came in.  It is that simple beloved! I came in and this is what is real!  I came into you and made my abode with you, says the Lord.”

Perfection and striving, driving, jumping, running will never make yourself righteous; Nothing can! In your frantic mind it all borders to insanity!

Yes, the signs are all there.  Soon you start to break down this unstoppable hamsters wheel, using as much energy and zeal you can muster and soon you hit the wall!  Your hazy marathon suddenly stops!  Like hitting a wall!

As you lay on the pavement, others slow for a time as they gawk making jest of your mess.  Not realizing they are next.  As you laid there having no strength left, with all the signs, and inner screaming, ‘I can’t stop’ but you did stop;  you stopped hard and suddenly!

Spiritual Burnout is a condition in the body of believers.  I also know it applies physically, mentally and spiritually.  It happens to many.

Burnout is when one collapses, caused by performance, driven and persons who are seeking the approval of man.  Those who climb the ladders of success and abiding in pinnacles of success, only to find out there is nothing more at the top.

These burnout victims strive in a society resulting in overwork, stress, being hospitalized OR death!

Often people like this are considered type A personalities, and employers are happy they do great work but have no people skills.

They are good at working alone and are addicted the Adrenalin rush they get.  Yes these are workaholic’s.  Many complain about them, but the employers like the job they do until one day they hit that proverbial wall.

I find this same problem within the church on all levels.  For example, over achievers, or procrastinators are both out of balance; therefore both are wrong.

You need to ask yourself, ‘What is wrong with My belief system?  And why do I continue to end up exactly in the same place, year after year, seemingly stuck again?’

If you are sincere, about order and balance in your life, stand up to the plate and take responsibility for your life.  The Lord will show and teach you if you are serious in wanting change.
