What Is It Going To Be?

Then Jesus said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things.”  John 8:28 NKJV

“Either you believe Me or you do not – you choose.

To say you trust Me and believe what I said I will do/will cause; then to speak ‘I have (this ailment)’; and refer to the challenge as ‘my (specific challenge)‘ brings the fruit of your expectation to naught. The equation ‘a positive + a negative = 0’ applies in your conversation. You cancel your declaration of faith.

I require you to say what I say about the matter or situation. Yes, state the challenge, make your request known; then seek Me…seek My Word for My answer, remedy, strategy. My statements of My peace and joy are found there to be expressed…declared for manifestation. This is how it comes to fruition…giving life for you from the pages…becomes reality in the natural.

Give voice to My Word – situations change. Angels await the voice of My Word to go forth on your behalf, according to My established purpose. Therefore, it is imperative that you align your conversation with My Word in all seriousness, practicality, in your joking, and even singing.

You see, the devil is just that cunning. The enemy and his agents watch and listen for the release of any type of conversation contrary to My will; awaiting to pounce and interfere with manifestation of My purpose and answers to your prayers. This is all to extinguish your faith in Me. Grace covers much; but I am calling you to a higher place of responsibility and accountability.

Speak the Word…Speak My heart

Speak the Word…Speak My heart

Speak the Word…Speak My heart

Decree the Word…Decree My heart

Decree the Word…Decree My heart

Decree the Word…Decree My heart

Declare Me…Declare what I declare – find it in My Word; and speak that only to/against the opposition and evil that comes; as well as in conjunction with your expectation of My blessing and promises unto you. I AM GOD, and I AM greater than all of satan’s plans, schemes, wiles and antics. I AM greater than any seeming impossibility. I AM greater than any fear or skepticism arising within the process of wait I deem necessary for your preparation.

Allow Me to settle this reprimand and start you off in this, My command: ‘The LORD my GOD is GREATER than all else. I take my comfort in HIM, for HE established and assured HIS victory for me. This is what I know. This is what I believe. This is what I speak…in JESUS’ Name. Amen.'”

Honor God by Honoring His Servants

For they are impudent and stubborn children. I am sending you to them, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD.’ As for them, whether they hear or whether they refuse—for they are a rebellious house—yet they will know that a prophet has been among them.      Ezekiel 2:4-5 NKJV

*   *   *   *   *   *   *

There is a lack of honor and respect for the servants of God…for those sent to serve and flow in and with Him by His anointing.

In various occurrences in the comings and goings of my assignments, I realize how much I have grown in God – where rejection and slighting would have gripped me before, most recently, quiet composure (the peace of God) rested with me; and  He impressed me with “The anointing will cause them to turn, take notice and consider Me (God).” He has reassured on other occasions, “They will know My own was among them”. As my spirit man recalled how Jesus Christ, the ultimate Apostle and Prophet, was disrespected, and not honored in the most extreme way, I heard the quieting instruction of the Lord, “You keep ministering and teaching My love in/from it; being the conduit for Me to make My change in them/their heart. I see; I know; and I know whom I have chosen. Continue in My way.”

In our role of the offices of Apostle and/or Prophet, we are sent to various places, peoples, settings, companies, organizations, and situations with God’s agenda to implement – whether to speak, speak up, or be still and allow His presence in us to infiltrate the setting. We are always to exact His will, which at times involves our “taking the hit” of rudeness, misunderstanding and shunning. Not all reception shall be harsh; many will recognize and be welcoming. Remembering Who called and sent us prevents us from lashing out from the place of offense; even if He has us address the insult, it will be with the right heart. Remembering God and His “why,” will prevent us from getting pridefully caught up in any accolades.

Apostles and prophets, these offices have gotten a bad reputation because of tainting by the irresponsible actions of some; compromise by the intertwining of the carnal with the genuine anointing of God; and by the various venues of media and entertainment’s mocking and ridicule of these very sacred offices, positions and operations of God. Although we are not called to not enjoy and have fun, there is a crossing line over into disrespect and sacrilege that causes an overall desensitizing to honor and holiness. These, whether in the church or in personal lives must not be forsaken and, now, in this time requires restoration.

The curtain is about to be pulled back for God’s glory presentation of the ones truly having His heart, desiring to flow in and with Him. O, the grandeur of His glory expressed through those fully persuaded and submitted for Him to have His way in and through them; persevering in His required processes “just because” – not looking for notoriety or fanfare, but just because it is GOD, and being in oneness with Him. In this we will witness and execute great and mighty signs, wonders and miracles according to God’s direction, and for His glory. Many shall come to, some shall return to their first Love; and shall hit the ground running to genuinely and wholeheartedly serve Him also.

So, you true Apostles and Prophets of God, be encouraged. We must guard our “gates” – vigilant about what/who we give access to our being, what we watch and to what we listen; mind the company we keep, not everyone is to have access (whether initial or extended) to our time, effort, attention, and resources; be attentive about the things in which we are involved and participate; take serious consideration of invitations we accept, utilizing God’s counsel to discern (even in offers to minister, social media requests, jokes, and opinions); be conservative in what we allow to be attached to our name. There are things that are fine for some to involve themselves, not sinful or evil; but for our call and position from God, we must refrain.

Although a solemn and sobering message/teaching/reprimand, it is not a requirement to walk on eggshells in sackcloth and ashes; but it liberates us to flow freely in service and in the abundance the Lord has established for us to enjoy. Be encouraged. The joy of the Lord is ours. His peace is ours. He is our Avenger. Lifestyle intimacy with Him is our way for the abundance He faithfully promises and commands to be unto us. Do not dare shrink back, or spin your wheels attempting to justify or prove the point. God justified us by the blood of Jesus. Maintain His momentum. Head up, shoulders squared – the posture of the redeemed and called of God – never arrogant, but confident in Him who chose, prepared, equipped and sends us. Be very encouraged, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

My Victory for You

Give us help from trouble, For the help of man is useless. Through God we will do valiantly, for it is He who shall tread down our enemies.   Psalm 108:12-13 NKJV

“I am your Help. I cause…command our victory…My victory unto you. Listen for Me. Follow…yes, obey My instruction explicitly; for I know the way…have established the way you are to go.

I shall tread down your enemies…Our enemies; for they are become Mine first. Adhere to My ways, strategies and means. You shall do valiantly. This is My promise…My covenant…My way: VICTORY.

Now shout and celebrate, for it shall surely be…shall surely come…it already is. So celebrate with praise and thanksgiving, ushering in My will…what I have prepared. Yes, usher it in by praise and thanksgiving, even now.

Celebrate. Celebrate. Celebrate. Salvation…Celebrate. Deliverance…Celebrate. Breakthrough…Celebrate. Healing…Celebrate. Resolution…Celebrate. Peace…Celebrate. Joy…Celebrate. Celebrate. Celebrate. Celebrate.”

Take Note…Take Action

How shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed and keeping watch [on himself] according to Your word [conforming his life to it].   Psalm 119:9 AMPC

“When I unction you – give a warning, a directive, a ‘heads up’ so to speak – heed My instruction. I know what is coming…what lies ahead…whatever is necessary, and what is distraction.

Obedience…immediate, attentive and deliberate obedience to Me saves time, heartache and undue effort later. I even lead you to things thought lost; and give resolution to release what must go. I cast down delay of blessing; and release My peace and joy.

Take note…take action. When I call your attention to something…put person…place or thing on your heart…or remind you with a thought or contemplation, I am leading you with what seems to be mere considerations. Follow that, My still small voice.

To disobey wastes resources by worry and in clean-up, which is allotted for your purpose work, and advancement in Me and what I established for you. Flow in My momentum of it all. I am God, your Source; the Keeper and Disburser of all resources – time, material and effort included. Heed My directives. Take note…take action.”

And the Lord shall make you the head, and not the tail; and you shall be above only, and you shall not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you this day and are watchful to do them.   Deuteronomy 28:13 AMPC

Amen.

Do Not Settle…I AM GOD

I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for.    Jeremiah 29:11 (Good News Bible)

“Don’t you dare settle, when I have My great for you…My best. Do not grasp at any or all things offered or presumed as though there is no hope for My will to manifest unto you.

  • I am God; celebrate like you know it.
  • I am Faithful; rejoice as though you currently have it.
  • I am Healer; see yourself dancing in My victory for you.
  • I am Protector; go forth in My boldness.
  • I am Peace; rest in Me and My omniscience, omnipresence and omnipotence.
  • I am Joy; experience the humor and delight of and in Me.
  • I am Father; live My covering for and over you.

I AM, so you are. I AM, so you can. I AM so you have. Do not settle.

Seek Me for answers, direction, strategies that only I can provide and execute in, through and with you. Do not settle for your own interpretation of the vision I released or the matters at hand. Know that with these come My guidance and empowerment. You tire because your own efforts are mere frailties in the light of My plans for you. Frustration, confusion, and exasperation are in set position at seeing you rely on your own capabilities. Broaden your expectation of My “omni-ness” …I AM GOD. I AM your GOD.

Come to Me in counsel.

Come to Me with expectations, demands of withdrawals on/of who and all I am. As promised, all I am is for you…is available to you.

Come to Me with the questions, uncertainties, apprehensions, disappointments, wounds and “oh my’s”.

Come to Me for My escape routes, and My way to proceed to My expected end for you.

I AM GOD. Do not settle for the counterfeits…the decoys. Shake off complacency, lethargy, and all other snares set to bog you down, and anchor you to the “lessers” of life.

I know…I have specific, established thoughts and plans for you; with all required to access, acquire and achieve them. Do not settle.”

CHOOSE

“For a mere moment I have forsaken you, But with great mercies I will gather you. With a little wrath I hid My face from you for a moment; But with everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you,” Says the LORD, your Redeemer.             Isaiah 54:7-8 NKJV

“This still holds true for the todays of mankind: Turned over to a reprobate mind; but you repented to ME, the LORD your GOD, and are restored. (Romans 1:26-32; 1 John 1:9) 

KNOW this, although released to your own devices because of your rebellion and defiance to ME, at no time was MY love and compassion for you ceased, nor MY covenant rescinded. However, the fullness of it all…of ME was withheld from you by necessity and mandate of MYSELF –
~ that you would come to yourself (realization) and return to ME
~ sin and reviling could not be in or around ME, nor of MY Name – who I am: sin cannot be named among (associated with) ME.

Return to ME; I receive you, covenant in tack and MY love everlasting.
Return to ME. Commit to ME. Trust ME in righteousness.
Return to ME in faith.
Return to ME in vision and purpose.
Return to ME in joy.
Return to ME in reverence.
Return to ME in wealth…MY wealth – your complete well-being.
Return to ME; all these await you.
Return to ME in understanding…I AM GOD; I lie not, nor have I changed MY original plans for you.
Return to ME and have life…REAL living…MY life for you.

I have lain this all out for you; have borne MY heart to you in this. Now it is on you…up to you to accept and receive it, which is to accept and receive ME; or reject it and in so doing, reject ME. The decision is yours to make. It can only be presented, but you must choose. Return to ME…chose life. Return to ME.”

Deserving

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV

And GOD says, “The fact…the truth that I created you makes you worthy of MY love, of salvation, and of deliverance. It is not anything you can do to earn; but rather because I created you. As you are living…breathing, you are deserving of MY gift of salvation and ALL its benefits. It.is.MY.gift. Receive it. Have faith that I love you. Believe that I love you. Know that I love you. Confess that I love you.

No more lowly thinking. No more sub-standard expectations. Make your standard that of MY Kingdom, and what I say is your norm, which is MY love for you. Make MY love your norm. Operate from there; function from there…MY love.

Now as I am Love, it is what I say of you…what Love says of you…what I, Love, have established for you. Receive this. Set this in your heart by MY WORD, what I have to say about you and everything concerning you and life itself. Confirm this in your soul (mind/thoughts, emotions, imaginations/considerations) by your worship, praise and thanksgiving from the depths of your very being…from your spirit. Receive ME. Receive MY love. Receive ME. Receive LOVE.

Now you say: GOD loves me. The FATHER loves me. I am loved greatly and dearly by the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. This is not by anything I have done; it is just because…only because HE created me. I am deserving of HIS love. By HIS love, I am made me new. Thank YOU, FATHER. Hallelujah! Glory to GOD! Amen.”

Truth Makes Free

And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.   John 8:32 NKJV

The devil is not a lie; he is a very real entity. To say he is a “lie” prevents you from fully realizing he is one to resist; and for this reason I have given you authority to do so.  The devil is a LIAR; the father of lies, master of deception, issuer of counterfeit, and delegator of decoys. LIAR is who he is; there is no truth to be found in him – regardless of how you twist what he spews/presents/offers/lays out for you.

Set your consciousness properly to appropriately assess and experience victories in matters as I, the Lord your God, has prescribed and assigned…even command unto you.

Seek Me. Seek truth. I AM TRUTH. I make you free, and set/reset you on My right course for you.

Repent from – set your heart against – the games and finagling. Turn from the snares camouflaged as truth, as right, as of Me. Stop running after the lies; this is as running with the bulls. Cease from futile attempts to spin deception into truth. Sin and lies are never My way. I AM TRUTH.

Come for your blessing. Come to Me to know My right way, and for the courage to live it. I AM TRUTH, and EVERYTHING necessary to implement it. I am HE who saves…who delivers…who makes free. I am HE. I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.

Therefore if the Son makes your free, you shall be free indeed.   John 8:36 NKJV

From Enemy Possession

And they [earnestly] remembered that God was their Rock, and the Most High God their Redeemer. Psalm 78:35

I AM GOD.

I have redeemed you from satan’s possession, and thereby his jurisdiction/authority over you…rights to you revoked by My own blood, which is the currency appropriated to pay sin’s debt:

  • sin of mankind, resulting from Adam’s treason against Me
  • sin of individuals, resulting from each one’s personal sin

I have redeemed you Myself – seeing, knowing your value – and in doing so, stating your value…your worth to Me. You are precious to Me; the apple of My eye. I created and formed you; and all My works are wonderful.

I have redeemed you unto victory…My victory; with great and precious promises, and benefits to which the world can only allude, but is completely incapable to fulfill – as according to My intent and level; not with the finality and staying power that I command to manifest on your behalf.

I have redeemed you, calling…bringing you out of darkness and into My marvelous light. You are become of My light, My glory.

Now shine…SHINE. Let your light so shine through your confession and lifestyle; your words and deeds, your caring and submitting to Me in how to proceed – to go or remain; to love and hold, or love and release; the how, where, how much and the duration; and in your obeying, following My directives and prompts. I am your Redeemer who teaches you to profit in every aspect of your being; not limited to the material, but also your character, reputation, and well-being. I am a complete and thorough God. I am your Redeemer.

Remember Me, I am your Redeemer.

Remember Me, I brought you out; I bring you through.

Remember Me, I command My blessing unto you.

Remember Me, in allowing My glory to be known in and through you.

Remember Me, by setting your heart on Me and holding to what is true and right.

Remember Me, in turning from what insults/offends Me, who I am, and who you are in Me.

Remember Me, in repenting when haven fallen short, sinning against Me.

Remember Me in asking for and relying on My assistance to remedy, and to maintain what I require.

Remember Me, with praise, worship and thanksgiving, yes; but also by your testimony of Me.

Remember Me, I am God, your Redeemer; the holy One of your heart.

Amen.

Become Ready…Really Ready

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.  ~Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV

“You wonder, cry out, even complain, ‘Lord God, why so long? Have You forgotten me? Why did it not happen? I prayed. I fasted. I have been waiting. Where is/are the blessing(s)? Should I continue to believe…serve…even read the Bible…hold on/out for fulfillment of the promises made?’

Yes, you have. Yes, I know how long it has been. Yes, you have endured, persevered, laid down, rolled over, spun cartwheels, and all other cliche references to steadfastness and obedience. Yes, I made promises unto you by My written Word, as well as revelation and impression directly to your heart. Yes, there is My preparation process for you not to be crushed or ruined under the weight of the blessing and stewardship of it – to expand My Kingdom; to be fruitful and multiply; blessed to be a blessing.  However, there is the matter of your heart; I also know what is in your heart…its condition, intentions…what it contains.

~ You see, I know pride, greed, wounds, unforgiveness and plans of retaliation in your heart that lie in wait to manifest at receipt of My blessings unto you. Even any residue lying dormant post prayer and repentance is set to spring forth to influence your stewardship of what I have for you.

~ You see, I am aware of what you plan to do with the blessing: how you will (you intend) to spend it; the activities set to/that you plan to occur in it; the invitations you will extend into it. I am aware of the manner in/by which you intend to be a blessing, without having sought Me for direction; which could/would cause ‘them’ to see you as their help – a mere human – when they have need to see Me as Savior, Provider, Protector…Source; although you as a resource. They will have reached the point of needing to come to Me, receive from Me directly for healing and wholeness…no more bandaid remedies that you can suggest or offer.

~ You see, I am privy to satan’s sly, cunning machinations to manipulate you to climb up on a pedestal (or allow yourself to be placed on one) as ‘deliverer’ to divert knowledge, understanding and affection from the Truth that I AM THE DELIVERER; and what man can offer is temporal, but what I offer is eternal.

Now spend the remainder of this ‘wait’ seeking Me for direction on how to proceed. See it as an inroad, an introduction, a prelude to My greater…My best for you.  See it as time with Me for stripping, yes; but also girding. Allow Me to fully have My way. Simply put: ask Me if your ‘it’ is of Me and My plan for you. Release what I require, and hold to what I require. Cast off as I direct, gather as I direct. Readdress certain matters, perspectives and positions. Receive My plan and strategies into your great by Me – by surrendering, submitting and obeying. Spend it as the intimate fellowship that will develop into Our divine fellowship now and forever as I have always intended.

All this may seem a daunting task; but it is a necessary endeavor. I desire My best to fully manifest for you – what I have already established. Do not delay My hand on your behalf. Submit and become ready…really ready to receive it.”

Amen.
