January 30, 2006 – COME NEAR UNTO THE LORD!
THIS IS THE HOUR OF MY VISITATION WITH YOU. I AM CALLING MY CHILDREN FROM THE NORTH, THE SOUTH, EAST, AND WEST, AND FROM THE UTTERMOST PARTS OF THE EARTH. COME! DRAW NIGH TO ME AND I WILL DRAW NIGH TO YOU. James 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
THIS IS THE TIME FOR YOU TO MOUNT UP AS EAGLES IN MY POWER FOR MY GLORY. Isaiah 40:29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. MY TIME CLOCK IS SET AND THERE ARE ONLY A FEW HOURS REMAINING FOR YOU TO COMPLETE YOUR WORK. Acts 13:47 For this is what the Lord has commanded us: “‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.” MANY OF YOU ARE NOT EVEN A LIGHT TO YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND NEIGHBORS.
THROUGH FAITH IN MY NAME, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. YOU ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE! PREPARE YOURSELVES BEGINNING WITH PRAYER AND FASTING. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ASSIGNED TASKS. JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVEN’T ASKED “WHAT WILL YOU HAVE ME DO, DEAR LORD,” DO NOT THINK YOU CAN PLEAD IGNORANCE. YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T EVEN TRY TO SEEK MY FACE, MY WISDOM, AND MY WILL FOR YOUR LIFE. TO KNOW TO DO GOOD AND IGNORE IT IS SIN. James 4:17 Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.
DO YOU KNOW THAT THE GIFTS AND CALLING OF GOD ARE IRREVOCABLE? THAT MEANS YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE TO SEEK MY WILL FOR YOUR LIFE. Romans 11:29 for God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable. HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN SINCE YOU HAVE ASKED ME TO PUT WITHIN YOU TO “WILL” AND “DO” OF MY GOOD PLEASURE? Philippians 2:13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. Ephesians 1:5 he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will.
MY WILL FOR YOU IS THAT EVERYTHING WORK TOGETHER FOR YOUR GOOD. I SAID, “EVERYTHING.” I CAN ONLY WORK FOR YOUR GOOD IF YOU ARE WALKING ACCORDING TO MY WILL AND PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE. IF YOU ARE WALKING ON YOUR OWN, I CANNOT DIRECT EVERY MOVE TO WORK FOR YOUR GOOD. EVEN THE SEEMING BAD THINGS, WILL ULTIMATELY BRING GOOD TO YOU WHEN YOU LEAVE YOUR ENTIRE BEING IN MY HANDS. THAT TAKES DEDICATION TO MY CALL UPON YOUR LIFE AND LISTENING FOR MY DIRECTION THROUGH MY SPIRIT AND THROUGH MY WRITTEN AND SPOKEN WORD. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO FEED DAILY ON MY WORD SO YOU HAVE MY HIDDEN MANNA WITHIN YOU.
WHEN YOU WALK IN YOUR OWN STRENGTH YOU ARE WEAK AND VULNERABLE. IF YOU CHOOSE TO WALK IN MY POWER FOR MY GLORY ALONE, YOU ARE BACKED BY ALL OF HEAVEN’S RESOURCES. Philippians 4:13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:19 And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
MY CHILDREN, I CAME TO DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL. 1John 3:8 He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. THEREFORE, SIN NOT! IF YOU SIN, SEEK MY FORGIVENESS AND THEN TURN FROM YOUR SIN AND DO WHAT IS GOOD AND RIGHTEOUS. I HAVE LOVED YOU, THEREFORE, I CALL YOU MY CHILDREN. 1John 3:9 No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God. 1John 3:20 whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. 1John 3:21 Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God 22 and receive from him anything we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him.
WHEN YOU APPROACH ME WITH PURE HEARTS AND CLEAN HANDS, YOU WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN, I WILL BIND UP YOUR WOUNDS, AND TEAR DOWN THE STRONGHOLDS OF SATAN IN YOUR MIDST. YOUR PRAYERS WILL BE ANSWERED AND YOU WILL BRING GLORY TO MY NAME. 2Chronicles 7:13 “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.
MY DESIRE IS TO BLESS YOU IN ALL THAT YOU DO AND NOT TO WITHHOLD ANY GOOD THING, BUT SIN WILL SEPARATE YOU FROM YOUR BLESSINGS. Psalms 84:11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.
