“You have both spoken with Your mouth and fulfilled it with Your hand, as it is this day” (1 KI 8:24).
DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED, MY CHILDREN, I SPEAK MY PROMISES TO YOU AND FULFILL THEM IN MY PERFECT TIMING. YOU MUST WAIT UPON ME UNTIL YOU RECEIVE YOUR ANSWERS FROM ON HIGH. DO NOT BE IDLE, CONTINUE TO PRAY AND ASK ME TO PERFECT YOU WHILE YOU ARE AWAITING MY ANSWERS TO YOUR PRAYERS. YOU ARE CALLED TO BE MY WITNESSES. WHEN YOU WAIT BEFORE ME, I PREPARE YOUR HEART TO BRING GLORY TO MY NAME. “Until the time that his word came to pass, The word of the LORD tested him” (PSA 105:19).
EXAMINE YOURSELF AND JUDGE THE IMAGE YOU PORTRAY AS MY WITNESS! ARE YOU A REFLECTION OF MY LOVE AND GOODNESS, OR DO YOU STILL REFLECT THE FALLEN NATURE OF THE WORLD? DOES YOUR “OLD MAN” STILL RULE YOU, OR ARE YOU PRESENTING TO THE WORLD “THE NEW MAN” IN CHRIST JESUS. MY CHILDREN ARE “CALLED” TO REPRESENT MY RIGHTEOUS NATURE AND IMAGE BEFORE THE WORLD. ONLY THE MAN BORN AGAIN WITH A NEW HEART AND SPIRIT CAN GLORIFY ME. AS YOU GLORIFY ME BEFORE THE WORLD, I CAN DRAW THE LOST, CAPTIVE, BLIND, AND BROKEN UNTO MYSELF.
MY WORDS OF TRUTH CAN BREAK THE YOKE OF BONDAGE AND WHATSOEVER YOU DO IN MY NAME AND THROUGH THE LEADING OF MY SPIRIT, WILL TOUCH LIVES. IT IS TIME TO BUILD UP MY KINGDOM ON EARTH BEFORE THE ENEMY MAKES THEM CAPTIVE
DO YOU OFTEN COMMENT THAT THE WORLD IS BECOMING MORE EVIL EVERYDAY? YOU LIVE THROUGH MY POWER AND GOODNESS WITHIN YOU, WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO CHANGE THE EVIL ON EARTH? YOU ALONE CAN BRING RIGHTEOUSNESS AND GOODNESS INTO THE WORLD AROUND YOU. ONLY MY CHILDREN HAVE THE SPIRIT AND THE WORD DWELLING WITHIN THEM. MY TRUTH CAN SET THE WORLD FREE. ARE YOU HIDING CHRIST WITHIN YOU INSTEAD OF REVEALING HIM TO THOSE ALL AROUND YOU? “To them (THE BELIEVERS IN CHRIST) God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory” (COL 1:27).
PRAY FOR THOSE AROUND YOU AND LET MY WORKS AND POWER BE SEEN. CARRY MY WORD TO THE SPIRITUALLY BLIND AND DULL OF HEARING SO MY TRUTH WILL SET THE CAPTIVE FREE! I DESIRE TO USE YOU AS MY WITNESSES. YOU MUST HAVE MY SPIRIT AND WORD DWELLING IN YOU TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. I AM READY TO DO A WORK FOR THE GLORY OF MY KINGDOM, ARE YOU READY? THE TIME IS SHORT AND THE DAYS ARE ALL NUMBERED FOR YOU AND EVERYONE AROUND YOU. “Whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away” (JAM 4:14).
WHOSE FAULT IS IT IF YOU ARE NOT TRAINED OR PREPARED TO BE MY WITNESS? ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS “ASK.” YOU CAN ASK ME TO GIVE YOU A GREATER LOVE FOR ME AND THE SOULS AROUND YOU. IT IS MY PERFECT WILL THAT YOU BE MY WITNESSES. MANY OF YOU EVEN HAVE FAMILY WHO YOU ARE NOT PRAYING FOR. “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (MAT 5:16).
YOU HAVE A WORK TO DO! YOU ARE LIVING EXAMPLES OF MY WORK ON EARTH. ARE YOU DWELLING IN LOVE SO THE WORLD WILL KNOW YOU ARE DWELLING IN GOD? YOU SHOW YOUR LOVE FOR ME BY YOUR OBEDIENCE TO MY COMMANDS.
YOU HAVE CHRIST WHO IS “THE LIVING WORD” DWELLING WITHIN YOU AND THE GREATEST TEACHER, THE HOLY SPIRIT, SENT TO TEACH YOU. ARE YOU WORKING TO OBTAIN A DEGREE OF HIGHER LEARNING FROM THE FATHER WHO GIVES FREELY AND UPBRAIDETH NOT? IT TAKES EFFORT AND DETERMINATION TO STUDY. “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 TI 2:15).
IF YOU FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH AND FINISH THE RACE, I HAVE LAID UP FOR YOU THE “CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!” SEEK TO ACCOMPLISH ALL I HAVE CALLED YOU TO DO THROUGH MY POWER AND WISDOM. FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH IN CHRIST IS THE HIGHEST CALLING YOU CAN ATTAIN TO IN YOUR LIFETIME! KEEP THE TRUTHS AND STANDARDS OF MY WORD. APPLY YOURSELF TO KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE FROM ALL BONDAGE. YOU WILL NEVER BE DISAPPOINTED IN ME!
HEAR THE WORDS OF THE APOSTLE PAUL AS THE TIME NEARED FOR HIS DEPARTURE FROM THIS WORLD: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing” (2 TI 4:7-8).
Dearest Lord, perseverance is necessary for me to win the crown You have prepared for me. All around us we can see the events You are allowing to bring us to Your “wake-up” call for the world. There are many who are rebelling against the hardships. Please give us Your overcoming power and strength so we can be more than overcomers. Dear Lord, we want to see Satan defeated and You lifted up and glorified. Help us to lead many to You. Give us the wisdom to choose our words and prayers so they can be powerful and effective!
This is our hour of victory through Christ! We want to draw from You everything we need to persevere against the wickedness all around us. Please be honored through us. Teach us, strengthen our resolve to overcome until the end, and make us faithful to You and Your kingdom! The battle is enjoined with the enemy of our souls, and we want Your righteousness to prevail in us. We want to love You with all our hearts, minds, souls, and strength. May we live, move, and have our being in You! Through You victory is assured! We thank You. We know that, “in Christ dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily and we are complete in You, who is the head of all principality and power” (COL 2:9-10). Amen.
