October 8, 2004 – LET ME SHOW YOU THE WAY
MY CHILDREN, WHY DO YOU STRUGGLE AND DESPAIR OVER YOUR BURDENS WHEN YOU CAN INSTEAD ACKNOWLEDGE ME AS YOUR BURDEN BEARER? PSALM 34:6 This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. 7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. 8 Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him. 9 Fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing. I ANSWER BUT YOU DO NOT LISTEN. I SPEAK IN A STILL SMALL VOICE, BUT YOU HEED NOT MY INSTRUCTIONS. YOU HEAR ONLY YOUR OWN HEART GROAN UNDER YOUR BURDENS AND STILL YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT I WILL CARRY ALL OF YOUR BURDENS AND FORGIVE ALL OF YOUR INIQUITIES.
I DESIRE TO MAKE YOU A NEW CREATION IN MY IMAGE THAT YOU MAY RULE AND REIGN WITH ME IN MY KINGDOM AND THAT YOU WILL TAKE DOMINION OVER YOUR LIFE AND LIVE IT FOR MY GLORY ON EARTH. THE LESSONS I AM TEACHING YOU ON EARTH ARE ALL RELEVANT TO YOUR BEING A CHILD OF THE KING OF KINGS. MATTHEW 25:23 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ REVELATION 22:5 There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever. IN A ROYAL FAMILY THE CHILDREN MUST BE TAUGHT KINGLY WISDOM, RIGHTEOUSNESS, UNDERSTANDING AND HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF THE WAY I GOVERN — THROUGH JUSTICE, LOVE, KINDNESS, MERCY, GENTLENESS, GOODNESS, ETC.. IN ORDER TO TAKE DOMINION YOU MUST RULE AS I RULE AND SPEAK THE WORDS I SPEAK. ROMANS 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will. 1JOHN 5:4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. MY SON DID NOT SEEK HIS OWN WORKS OR SAY HIS OWN WORDS, BUT HE DID ALL THINGS AS I COMMANDED THEM TO BE DONE. JOHN 6:63 The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life. YOU AFFECT SOME DESTINIES WHEN YOU FAIL TO BE LED BY MY SPIRIT; THEY ARE THE ONES YOU FAILED TO LOVE OR REACH OUT TO WHEN YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY THROUGH MY SPIRIT. IT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO BE IN TUNE WITH MY SPIRIT AT ALL TIMES AND ALWAYS BE READY TO GIVE TESTIMONY TO THE FAITH AND POWER THAT WORKS WITHIN YOU.
MY WORD DECLARES, “HOW CAN THEY HEAR WITHOUT A PREACHER”? EVERY DAY YOUR LIFE SPEAKS TO YOUR FAMILY AND THOSE YOU CONTACT. THEY KNOW WHEN THE LOVE OF CHRIST AND THE WORDS AND WISDOM OF GOD ARE WORKING WITHIN YOU. ALAS, THEY ALSO KNOW WHEN THEY ARE NOT. EVERY DAY IS A GOD GIVEN OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY FOR THE NEEDS AROUND YOU; NOT JUST YOUR OWN, BUT EVERY NEED THAT COMES WITHIN YOUR HEARING OR SIGHT. IN GOD’S KINGDOM ON EARTH YOU ARE IN CONTACT WITH OTHERS AND YOU HAVE AN AFFECT ON THEIR ETERNAL DESTINIES. YOU CAN BE A BLESSING OR A DETRIMENT DEPENDING ON WHETHER YOU DISPLAY MY HOLY NATURE OR THE VERY NATURE AND DEEDS OF THE EVIL ONE. MY CHILDREN FULFILL YOUR EARTHLY CALLING BY RULING THROUGH THE POWER AND LOVE OF CHRIST. ROMANS 5:17 how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ. REIGNING IN LIFE! OVERCOMING ALL THE WILES OF THE DEVIL! LIVING VICTORIOUSLY SO THE OUTCOME OF EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE AND TRIAL WILL WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD. ROMANS 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. THIS SCRIPTURE REMINDS YOU THAT YOU MUST LOVE CHRIST WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND LIVE ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE IN ORDER FOR EVERYTHING TO WORK TOGETHER FOR YOUR GOOD. THIS IS A VERY BASIC LESSON IN TURNING EVERYTHING OVER TO ME AND LETTING ME SUSTAIN YOU AND GUIDE YOUR EVERY STEP. I AM LEADING YOU INTO RIGHTEOUSNESS (RIGHT STANDING WITH ME). YOU MUST GIVE ME YOUR DESIRES, DECISIONS, CHOICES, YOUR JOB AND LIFE’S WORK SO I CAN DO WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU. I WANT TO BLESS YOUR MARRIAGE AND YOUR CHILDREN, BUT AGAIN YOU MUST CONSECRATE YOURSELF AS WELL AS YOUR FAMILY TO ME. PHILIPPIANS 2:13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. PHILIPPIANS 2:15 so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe. 2PETER 1:3 His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. I HAVE GIVEN YOU THROUGH MY SON, EVERYTHING THAT PERTAINS TO LIFE AND GODLINESS. THIS KNOWLEDGE COMES FROM MY LIVING WORD THROUGH THE INDWELLING CHRIST AND THE HOLY SPIRIT. MY SHEEP KNOW MY VOICE! I ARRANGE CIRCUMSTANCES AND EVEN TRIALS TO SPEAK TO YOU. THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I MUST AWAKEN YOU OUT OF YOUR STUPOR. I WANT WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU! YOU CAN LET THE WORLD KNOW THAT IT PAYS TO TOTALLY GIVE YOUR LIFE TO ME SO THAT I CAN LIVE IN AND THROUGH THEM. I WANT YOUR LIFE TO SHINE LIKE STARS IN THE UNIVERSE. YOU CAN LIVE AN ORDINARY LIFE WITH FEW IF ANY REWARDS OR YOU CAN LIVE AN EXTRAORDINARY LIFE BY BEING LED BY MY SPIRIT.
THIS WORLD HAS NOTHING BUT WORLDLINESS, PLEASURES THAT ARE FLEETING, SIN AND DESTRUCTION TO OFFER YOU. I GIVE YOU PEACE AND JOY, GUIDANCE AND BLESSINGS AND ETERNAL LIFE. IF YOU ARE NEGLECTING YOUR “CHRIST- LIKE” WALK WITH ME, YOU ARE A GLASS FILLED WITH ONLY A SMALL AMOUNT OF THE LIVING WATER I WANT TO GIVE YOU. WHY DO YOU LIVE FAR BELOW MY PROMISES TO YOU AND MY PERFECT WILL FOR YOUR LIFE? WHY DO YOU REMAIN IN THE FETTERS OF WORLDLINESS WHEN I HAVE CALLED YOU TO BE FREE AND FILLED WITH MY LIFE, FAVOR AND BLESSINGS AND AT THE END ETERNAL LIFE? TO TRULY LIVE YOU MUST BE DEAD TO SELF AND LIVE YOUR LIFE THROUGH MY INDWELLING SPIRIT. COLOSSIANS 3:2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
YOUR TIME ON EARTH IS VERY SHORT COMPARED TO YOUR LIFE HEREAFTER. YOU ARE LIVING YOUR LIFE IN PREPARATION FOR ETERNITY. 1CORINTHIANS 6:9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. ~The Body Is the Lord’s 12 “Everything is permissible for me” – but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me” – but I will not be mastered by anything.
I HAVE CALLED YOU TO OVERCOME THE WORLD AND WALK TRIUMPHANTLY WITH ME. YOU ARE CHOSEN TO BE A LIGHT TO THIS DARKENED WORLD AND TO WALK IN MY CLOSE FELLOWSHIP, LOVE AND PROTECTION. CAN OTHERS SEE THE WAY TO ETERNAL LIFE BY OBSERVING YOUR LIFE AND HOW YOU LIVE IT? THESE QUESTIONS ARE ALL IMPORTANT TO YOUR PRESENT AND FUTURE STANDING WITH ME. PROVERB 16:5 The LORD detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished. 6 Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the LORD a man avoids evil. 7 When a man’s ways are pleasing to the LORD, he makes even his enemies live at peace with him. 8 Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice. 9 In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WAIT TO HAVE CLOSE FELLOWSHIP WITH ME AND TO HEAR MY VOICE DIRECTING YOU. DRAW NEAR TO ME AND I WILL BECOME YOUR DEAREST FRIEND. DAILY AND CONTINUALLY PRAY, READ AND STUDY MY WORD; MAKE IT A DEDICATION TO ME. PRAISE AND WORSHIP WILL BE YOUR EXPRESSION OF LOVE FOR ME. ISAIAH 40:28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 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. I HAVE CALLED YOU TO “SOAR ABOVE SIN AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS AND TO LIVE A LIFE OF HOLINESS AND GODLINESS”. THIS COUPLED WITH LOVE WILL PROPEL YOU INTO NEW HEIGHTS AND DEPTHS OF MY LOVE AND PRESENCE.
