PERSEVERANCE IS REQUIRED!
DO NOT BE PERPLEXED OVER STRANGE THINGS THAT ARE GOING TO HAPPEN SHORTLY IN YOUR FUTURE. THE ARMIES OF THE LORD ARE ON THE MOVE, AND HEAVEN AND EARTH WILL BE STIRRED BY MY SPIRIT. I, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, AM SCATTERING SATAN’S SOLDIERS, AND BRINGING TO NOUGHT HIS ASSIGNMENTS AGAINST MY CHILDREN AS THEY PERFORM MY PERFECT WILL ON EARTH. YEA, I HAVE HEARD YOUR PRAYERS AND MY MIGHTY POWER WILL BE SEEN IN YOUR MIDST. “And the heavens will praise Your wonders, O LORD; Your faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints. For who in the heavens can be compared to the LORD? Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened to the LORD? God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be held in reverence by all those who are around Him. O LORD God of hosts, who is mighty like You, O LORD? Your faithfulness also surrounds You. You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves rise, You still them. You have broken Rahab in pieces, as one who is slain; You have scattered Your enemies with Your mighty arm” (Psalms 89:5-10).
THERE ARE THOSE WHO WILL BE STEDFAST AND OBEDIENT TO MY WORDS UNTIL THE END. THEIR REWARD WILL BE GREAT IN HEAVEN, AND I WILL RETURN TO CATCH THEM UP, AND THEY SHALL BE SAVED FROM MY WRATH TO COME. HOWEVER, THERE IS ALSO A GREAT FALLING AWAY, AND MANY HAVE BECOME LUKEWARM IN THEIR LOVE FOR ME. THEY DO NOT REALIZE THEY RUN THE RISK OF “BEING SPUED OUT OF MY MOUTH.” “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of My mouth” (REV 3:15-16).
I HAVE THE SPIRITUAL ANSWER TO THEIR PROBLEMS. “Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’ — and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked — I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent” (REV 3:17-19).
THE DOOR OF MY MERCY IS AJAR AND MY LOVE IS REACHING OUT! I HAVE THE ANTIDOTE FOR EVERY SPIRITUAL SICKNESS. COME UNTO ME AND LET ME HEAL YOU. “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne” (REV 3:20-21).
YOU WILL SEE MY WORKS AND YOU WILL CRY UNTO ME AND I WILL ANSWER YOU WHEN YOU SEEK ME WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART. YOU CANNOT GAIN VICTORIES WHILE YOU ARE TURNING FROM MY WAYS AND SERVING YOURSELF AND THE WORLD INSTEAD OF ME. HE WHO LIVES IN WORLDLY PLEASURE IS DEAD WHILE HE LIVES.
YOU HAVE SAID IN YOUR HEART, “WHERE IS MY LORD AND MY GOD IN THE AFFAIRS OF MAN?” THIS IS THE TIME OF MY OUTRAGE AGAINST SATAN AND HIS MINIONS AND I WILL COME DOWN AND WILL FIGHT FOR THOSE WHO LIVE THEIR LIVES ACCORDING TO MY PURPOSES AND IN OBEDIENCE TO MY WORD. I HEAR THE CALL OF ALL WHO OBEDIENTLY LOVE AND SERVE ME! SATAN HAS GONE TOO FAR IN HIS PERSECUTIONS AND DESTRUCTIONS OF FAITH ON THE EARTH. YEA, HE HAS SOUGHT TO TEAR DOWN MY FOUNDATIONS OF LIFE, FAITH, TRUST, AND THE AUTHORITY OF MY WORD. YEA, NOW I WILL SPEAK LOUDLY FOR ALL TO HEAR, “Say among the nations, ‘The LORD reigns; the world also is firmly established, it shall not be moved; He shall judge the peoples righteously’” (PSA 96:10).
I WILL COME DOWN AND STAND UP FOR YOU. “Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul would soon have settled in silence. If I say, “My foot slips,” Your mercy, O LORD, will hold me up. In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul” (PSA 94:16-19). REMEMBER, MY CHILDREN, I ALONE CAN DELIVER YOU FROM ALL EVIL. IF YOU FAIL TO PRAY AND TAKE YOUR AUTHORITY, YOU WILL REST IN THE CERTAIN FALLIBILITY OF YOUR OWN HANDS.
THIS IS NO TIME TO PLAY WITH THE THINGS OF GOD AND TREAT YOUR VOWS TO ME AS THOUGH THEY DO NOT MATTER. EVERY MAN WILL GIVE AN ACCOUNT TO ME OF HIS VOWS, WORDS AND ACTIONS. “And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness?” (ROM 6:13-16).
IF YOU ARE WILLFULLY CHOOSING THE PATH OF SIN, SATAN CAN DEVOUR YOU. IT IS ONLY MY MERCIES UPON YOU THAT YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY BEEN DESTROYED. CALL UPON ME NOW AND DO AWAY WITH SATAN’S WORKS WITHIN YOU. I KNOW YOUR VERBAL ABUSE, YOUR CARELESSNESS WITH YOUR ACTIONS. I KNOW YOUR TIME IS SPENT SOLELY ON YOUR PLEASURES AND YOU DO NOT TAKE TIME TO STUDY MY WORD OR PRAY. YOU CANNOT BLAME SATAN FOR YOUR CHOICES! YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE BECAUSE I HAVE GIVEN YOU “FREEDOM” OF CHOICE. I CAN BREAK ADDICTIONS AND DEPENDENCE ON THINGS THAT ARE DESTROYING YOU. “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened” (MAT 7:8). “And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart” (JER 29:13).
YOU ARE DECEIVED IF YOU THINK I DO NOT KNOW ALL OF YOUR SECRET THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS. YOU THINK YOU ARE SAFE BECAUSE THOSE AROUND YOU CANNOT SEE WHAT YOU ARE DOING! YOUR SOUL IS IN MORTAL DANGER AND YOU ARE UNAFRAID BECAUSE YOU THINK YOU ARE HIDING YOUR SINS. YOUR SINS ARE NEVER HIDDEN FROM ME. “If I say, ‘Surely the darkness shall fall on me,’ Even the night shall be light about me; indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to You” (PSA 139:11).
YOU HAVE NO POWER OVER MY JUDGEMENTS. ALL OF MY JUDGEMENTS ARE ACCORDING TO TRUTH. “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad” (2 CO 5:10).
I SAID TO CAIN WHEN HE WAS ANGRY WITH HIS BROTHER, “If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it” (GEN 4:7).
The blessings of the Lord flow from God and rest upon the work of our hands and the words of our mouths as we walk in obedience to Him. Our love for God is proven through obedience and sacrifice of self. “He that loseth his life for My sake shall find it!”
Dearest Father and my Lord, I come to You because You are my shelter from the storms of life. You are the answer to my problems and the wisdom that will untangle my affairs. You alone give eternal life. I praise and thank You for providing everything that we need to live a righteous life. Make me know my sins. Create in me a heart of love and words that are filled with wisdom. Give me a right spirit so I conform to Your image. Let me live before all men as an example of “Christ in me, the hope of glory.”
May I bring Your love and life to everyone You call me to serve. Let my heart be burdened for the needs around me. May my ears be in tune to the faintest cry for help. Oh lord, I have but one life to live for You, so help me to live it to the fullest extent. Fill me to overflowing with Your spirit and anoint me for Your work. I love You. Amen.
“Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death” (REV 2:10-11).
