Isaiah 55:8  “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the lord.  9  “as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts…”

Isaiah 65:2  All day long I have held out my hands to an obstinate people, who walk in ways not good, pursuing their own imaginations  (AND THOUGHTS). MY CHILD, I HAVE NOT FORSAKEN YOU. I HAVE MADE SPACE FOR YOU TO INDULGE YOUR FANTASIES AND SEE THE NOTHINGNESS AND EMPTINESS OF TRYING TO FIGURE OUT MY WILL FOR YOURSELF. YOU HAVE ASSUMED I WOULD BLESS YOUR PLANS FOR YOUR LIFE WHEN OFTEN THEY ARE CONTRARY TO MY WILL FOR YOU. YOU HAVE BEEN CALLED ACCORDING TO MY WILL. Ephesians 1:11  In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will. YOU ARE TO LIVE THROUGH MY SON RATHER THAN ASKING ME TO BLESS THE FRUIT OF YOUR OWN WILL AND PURPOSES. YOU ARE TO FOLLOW THE DIRECTION AND LEADING OF CHRIST. John 4:34 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.  John 5:30   By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.

MY SON HAS ALL POWER AND HE COULD HAVE MADE A NAME FOR HIMSELF, SPOKEN HIS OWN WORDS, AND CARRIED OUT HIS OWN WILL, BUT INSTEAD HE ALLOWED ME TO PERFECT HIM BY THE THINGS HE SUFFERED AS A MAN.  HE PROVED BY HIS OWN WORDS THAT HE IS “ONE” WITH THE FATHER AND IS TOTALLY SUBMITTED TO HIM.  John 6:38   For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. 1John 2:5  But if anyone obeys his word, God’s love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him:  6  Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.  JESUS SAID:  Matthew 12:50   For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.

YOU ARE IN THE WORLD AND YOU SEE ITS ALLUREMENTS, THE EXAMPLE OF THE MAJORITY, AND THE CULTURE OF HEDONISM (PLEASURE AND HAPPINESS IS THE HIGHEST GOOD). GOD HAS SET FORTH THE SUPREME RULE OF DUTY FOR ALL MANKIND. Matthew 22:37  Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’  38   This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.”

MY CHILDREN, THE HOUR HAS COME FOR THE SON OF MAN TO BE GLORIFIED. THIS CALLS FOR YOU TO BE WILLING TO GIVE UP YOUR WILL FOR THE WILL OF GOD. IN THIS HOUR YOU WILL BE CALLED UPON TO DENY YOURSELF AND TAKE UP YOUR CROSS AND FOLLOW ME.  John 12:23  Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.  24   I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.  25   The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.  26   Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.

SATAN HAS AN ALL OUT ATTACK ON GODLINESS AND RIGHTEOUS LIVING. IT IS NO LONGER FASHIONABLE TO GIVE YOUR TESTIMONY. I SAY UNTO YOU TAKE NO THOUGHT OF WHAT YOU ARE TO SAY!  ~A Hard Road before Them  Matthew 10:16   I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.  Matthew 10:19   But when they arrest you (OR RIDICULE YOU) do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say,  20   for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.    MANY IN THE WORLD ARE ALREADY FEELING THE PAIN AND COST OF BEING A CHILD OF GOD.  SATAN KNOWS HIS TIME IS SHORT!  Revelation 12:12  Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.

I AM YOUR ALL SUFFICIENCY!  I AM YOUR SALVATION, STRENGTH, AND POWER.  DO NOT FEAR WHAT MAN CAN DO UNTO YOU, FOR I AM GREATER! DEU 10:17  For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes.  18  He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the alien, giving him food and clothing. YOU ARE OVERCOMERS AND WILL HAVE THE POWER TO OVERCOME ALL THINGS. 1John 4:4  You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.  Matthew 28:19   Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20   and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
