I HAVE HIGHLY BLESSED YOU WITH SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS IN CHRIST JESUS AND I CHOSE YOU FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, THAT YOU WOULD BE HOLY AND WITHOUT BLAME BEFORE ME IN LOVE.
MANY OF YOU ARE LETTING IN THE LITTLE FOXES THAT WILL SPOIL YOUR VINES AND CAUSE UNFRUITFULNESS. I WILL ALLOW TRIALS AND AFFLICTIONS TO BEFALL YOU TO GET YOUR ATTENTION AND YOUR EYES FIXED ON ME. WHERE NECESSARY, I WILL RUSTLE YOUR COMFORTABLE NEST OR RATTLE YOUR CAGE TO GET YOUR ATTENTION. AS A LOVING FATHER I MUST BRING YOUR FOCUS TO THE BATTLES THAT ARE IMMEDIATELY AHEAD. I CANNOT ALLOW APATHY AMONG MY CHILDREN, LEST YOU MISS THE MEANING OF COMING EVENTS. THE LESSONS WILL NOT BE TEDIOUS BUT STRAIGHT TO THE POINT. I WANT YOU TO GET THE PICTURE AND BE READY FOR MY APPEARING. IF YOU “STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN” TO MY ADMONITIONS YOUR TRIALS WILL NOT BE PROLONGED.
WHEN I FULLY HAVE YOUR ATTENTION I WILL BRING INTO FOCUS THE BARNACLES THAT YOU ARE ALLOWING TO DEVELOP IN YOUR LIFE. THESE BESETTING SINS WILL INHIBIT YOUR GROWTH AND SPIRITUAL PERCEPTIONS. MOST OF ALL, THE BARNACLES WILL WEAKEN YOUR DETERMINATION AND WILL TO FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH. I WILL SPOTLIGHT ANY DARKNESS WITHIN YOU SO YOUR LIGHT WILL SHINE.
WHAT ARE THESE BARNACLES THAT ARE TRYING TO FASTEN THEMSELVES TO YOUR SOUL? ANY SIN YOU ALLOW IN YOUR LIFE WILL BECOME A BARNACLE. MY CHILDREN, KNOWINGLY ALLOWING SIN IN YOUR LIFE CAN SEPARATE YOU FROM PERFECT FELLOWSHIP WITH ME AND SET BACK YOUR SPIRITUAL GROWTH. WHAT IS SIN? James 4:17 Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins. I GAVE YOU MY HOLY SPIRIT TO CONVICT OF SIN, UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, AND JUDGMENT TO COME. 2Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.
UNBELIEF IS ONE OF THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE SINS! THE CONFESSIONS OF YOUR LIPS CAN CAUSE YOU TO BE A VICTOR OR A LOSER. THROUGH YOUR WORDS, ATTITUDES, AND ACTIONS OF UNBELIEF YOU NEGATE MY WORDS AND PROMISES THAT ARE “YEA AND AMEN.” YOU KNOW THAT WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE ME. UNBELIEF OPENS THE DOOR OF YOUR HEART TO EVERY KIND OF ERROR. THIS IS THE HOUR THAT FALSE DOCTRINES WILL SURROUND YOU AND ONLY THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH (JESUS CHRIST, THE LIVING WORD) WILL BRING LIGHT INTO THE COMING DARKNESS. EXPRESSIONS OF UNBELIEF PUT OUT THE LIGHT WITHIN YOU AND THE WORLD DESPERATELY NEEDS MY LIGHT. Matthew 5:15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
John 8:32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. THE TRUTH WILL NOT ONLY SET YOU FREE, IT WILL KEEP YOU FREE! YOU MUST BUILD YOUR LIFE ON THE LIVING AND WRITTEN WORD. 2Timothy 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. IN THIS HOUR YOU MUST TRY THE SPIRITS TO SEE IF THEY ARE OF GOD. SATAN WILL COME AS AN ANGEL OF LIGHT, AND HE WILL ALWAYS TWIST MY WORDS TO ROB YOU OF THE TRUTH. YOU MUST KNOW THE TRUTH TO BE ABLE TO DISCERN BETWEEN TRUTH AND ERROR OR GOOD AND EVIL. MY SPIRIT WILL HELP YOU THROUGH THE CONVICTION OF SIN OR BY BRINGING TO YOUR REMEMBRANCE MY WORD.
NEGATIVE THOUGHTS TRY TO FILL YOUR MIND BEFORE YOU REALIZE THEIR PRESENCE. NEGATIVITY BLOCKS YOUR FAITH AND BLESSINGS. SOME OF MY CHILDREN HAVE A NEGATIVE NATURE (SOMETIMES HABITUAL AND OFTEN INHERITED). REMEMBER THAT I CAME TO “DELIVER YOU FROM ALL EVIL.” BRING YOUR NEGATIVITY UNTO ME, CONFESS IT AS SIN, AND I WILL GIVE YOU A NEW NATURE. YOU WILL RECEIVE FROM ME PEACE, FAITH, HOPE, AND VICTORY OVER EVERY OBSTACLE IN YOUR LIFE. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS “ASK.” DON’T SETTLE FOR DEFEAT WHEN I CAN GIVE YOU NEWNESS OF LIFE. I WILL GIVE YOU FORGIVENESS AND VICTORY OVER ALL YOUR SINS AND THE WILES OF THE DEVIL. I CAN CLEANSE THE ATTIC OF YOUR MIND FROM DESTRUCTIVE AND ROBBING THOUGHTS. 2Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
THERE ARE SOME WHO BELIEVE THEY WERE CREATED TO ALWAYS BE A VICTIM. THEY REMAIN SILENT AND ALLOW SATAN TO VICTIMIZE THEM AND TAKE AWAY THEIR VICTORIES AND BLESSINGS. YOU CAN DEVELOP A “VICTIM MENTALITY.” THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN BE VICTIMIZED IS IF YOU CHOOSE TO ALLOW IT. I HAVE GIVEN YOU A WAY OUT OF EVERY TRIAL. DO YOU BELIEVE I PLACED YOU ON EARTH TO SUFFER AND BE AFFLICTED WHILE THE REST OF MY CHILDREN ARE BEING BLESSED? THAT IS NOT WHY I CREATED YOU! YOU ARE THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY GHOST AND SHOULD STAND AGAINST THE WORKS OF SATAN. Ephesians 2:22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit. I CAME TO GIVE YOU ABUNDANT LIFE, FREEDOM FROM ANY KIND OF CAPTIVITY, JOY, AND PEACE. John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. RESIST SATAN IN MY NAME AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU! James 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
1Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. I TEMPT NO MAN AND I GIVE YOU POWER OVER ALL THE POWERS OF SATAN. YOU ARE VICTORS THROUGH MY NAME! Ephesians 4:8 This is why it says: “When he ascended on high, he led captives in his train and gave gifts to men.”
IF YOU FEEL WORTHLESS AND USELESS, THAT IS ONLY YOUR SELF EVALUATION AND YOU ARE IN TOTAL ERROR! I CREATED YOU IN MY IMAGE THAT YOU MIGHT BECOME HOLY AND GODLY, REDEEMED FROM YOUR SINS, AND DELIVERED FROM YOUR SHORTCOMINGS TO BECOME A “NEW CREATION IN CHRIST JESUS”. I LOVED YOU SO MUCH THAT I SENT MY SON TO THE CROSS THAT YOU COULD BE REDEEMED AND MADE “NEW.” SATAN HAS BLINDED YOUR EYES IF YOU FEEL HOPELESS AND HELPLESS. I AM HERE, AS CLOSE AS YOUR MOUTH AND HEART. Romans 10:8 “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: 9 That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. IF YOU ARE WILLINGLY ACCEPTING DEFEAT IT IS YOUR UNBELIEF SEALING YOUR LIPS AND YOUR FAILURE TO “CALL UNTO ME” IS SEALING YOUR FATE.
LAYING BLAME FOR YOUR WEAKNESSES ON OTHERS BECAUSE OF YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES IS AN UNACCEPTABLE EXCUSE FOR SIN. I HAVE CREATED YOU IN CHRIST JESUS UNTO GOOD WORKS. YOU ARE MY WORKMANSHIP AND YOUR BESETTING SINS CAN GET IN THE WAY OF MY PERFECT WORK IN YOU. Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
MY CHILDREN, YOU ARE A CHOSEN PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN RAISED UP WITH CHRIST AND WILL SIT WITH HIM IN HEAVENLY PLACES. I HAVE CHOSEN YOU TO SHOW THE WORLD THE INCOMPARABLE RICHES OF MY GRACE. Ephesians 2:6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. YOUR HEART AND SOUL ARE WORTH GUARDING AND PROTECTING FROM BESETTING SINS. Ephesians 2:22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
I SPEAK OF THESE BESETTING SINS OR BARNACLES BECAUSE I WANT YOU FREE OF ANY BONDAGE OR CORRUPTION. 2Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. IT IS TIME TO SCRAPE OFF THE BARNACLES! Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. 2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. YOU TOO MAY SIT WITH ME IN HEAVENLY PLACES!
JUD 1:24 To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy – 25 to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.
