I KNOW MY OWN

Tell my people I know the ones that have listened to My instructions and are obeying My pleas to rid themselves of all the distractions of the world and are spending more time drawing close to Me each day. I hear their cries of fear, of disappointment, and of sorrow, and they are never alone. I know My own, I know you who seek My face and earnestly desire relationship with Me. To you I say, you have nothing to fear. Do you feel how it is becoming easier and easier to let go of all the things of the world and rest in My presence? I am separating the wheat from the chaff, the sheep from the goats, and you may find some situations alarming, as you see people slide into indifference and complacency, people that you thought were walking hand in hand with Me. The earth is indeed trembling as I speak,  as I prepare to bring judgement upon judgement to your land. As I have shown you in the train vision, the events will come in rapid succession. I must do this shaking in order to rid the world of the evil that consumes it. To those who will not turn from their ways and repent, I say to you, WALK AWAY ! Pray for them, yes. But distance yourselves from them. The iniquities of these are like a contagious disease that will affect all they come in contact with.   I assure you, the more you seek to know Me, the more I will manifest Myself to you, and the more peaceful you will become. But you must put Me FIRST  in your life. You must allow Me to transform you and rearrange old ways of thinking and doing things. My Kingdom is a Kingdom without limitations, and therefore you need to remove from your understanding, all that causes you to put any limits on what I can do, or how I can move in your lives. Much is already not as it seems. The deception of the enemy runs so very deep. Many, many are falling into his traps every day, and are in danger of losing their souls. You must pray for those who are lukewarm, My people of Laodicea. There is a great falling away at this time of those who continue to feel there is more time to make things right with Me. However, at the same time, there is also an army gathered, YOU, who have heard My call and are eagerly and anxiously awaiting to serve in your new capacity. Such wonders will you yourselves experience, My faithful ones in these coming days. It is to you I speak today, of soon coming events where you will shine and rise in My Glory even as the days becoming increasingly dark and uncertain. So many will need to be led to Me, and will need direction and compassion. It is at this time that I will pour out My Spirit through you to them, and they will finally know the Truth and be free. Do not underestimate the power of your prayers for the lost. Intercede for them at all times. You are My Beloved, and I am always awaiting our fellowship together. Be strong and be more than conquerors in Me. I love each of you so.

Yeshua

John 10:14

King James Version (KJV)
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.


Luke 3:17

17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.


Revelation 3:13-22

13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.


Proverbs 1:10-19

10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:
12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:
13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:
14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:
15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:
16 For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.
17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.
18 And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.
19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.

9TH OF AV 2012

Today is a very important date in Jewish history, and many Jewish people consider this date to be a time of mourning for their people because of the tragic events that have happened on this date throughout the years.  Please take a few minutes to read these events and familiarize yourself with them today as the Sabbath begins at sundown.  I am asking that all of us would be in prayer for our Jewish brothers and sisters as well as the situation in the Middle East which continues to escalate each day, even each hour.

VISION OF A WHITE HORSE AND RIDER

        Several nights ago, I was shown a skeletal looking white or pale rider with a bow on a horse laid down on the horse in a riding position as if galloping. Praying for interpretation and revelation, this is what I received this morning while meditating. 

These distressing situations and evil manifestations that you are experiencing in your lands are indeed escalating yet many of you seem suprised at the intensity of these things. I have spoken to you previously of having released many, many demons from under your earth at this time. The evil you are seeing now will only increase and spread throughout your world at a very alarming pace. There are very many powerful ones in leadership who answer only to the beast system, and who are manipulating many of the events to bring about the culmination of their beast system of total control of the populations. Judgement is indeed upon you, and many, many people will die in the near future during this hour that I pour out upon you. Pray earnestly for their souls, for more than not have no knowledge of Me or My mercy and love. The evil being perpetuated at this time goes far beyond anything ever heard of in days past. The scales are indeed tipped and are broken, as all the earth groans for my justice. Your rivers, lakes, and streams will indeed run dry as I withhold the rain on your countries. As the rains cease, so the fire comes. You are experiencing famine, pestilence, and plagues as not seen before, and these will increase in intensity and occurance.  I will avenge the wickedness that is blatantly thrown in My face. You cry out to Me for water, for relief, but your hearts are far from Me. There is a great shaking coming your way, that will affect every aspect of your lives. For when they cry peace, peace, sudden destruction comes. Expect great turmoil and confusion. Much suffering is at hand. The enemy will then use this time to deceive many, his deception is already widespread.  I have also spoken of the utmost importance of being grounded in My Word and in Your relationship to Me. You must not be on sinking sand, but completely rooted in Me. It is the only way you will survive what lies ahead. People will make many poor decisions when faced with terrible and dire situations. They will choose the comforts of the flesh for their physical needs rather than rely on Me to carry them through their hardships. The antichrist system is now in full control of your lands. Do not doubt as well that even your weather has been manipulated to bring about the hardships you have seen recently with your crops and livestock. This generation is THE generation that will experience all that has been foretold in My Word concerning the last days. Although I have warned continuously for repentance, most walk according to the flesh and do not believe these things will occur in their lifetime. This is part of the great deception of satan. He would have you believe that there is always more time to prepare, to repent, to choose to live a Godly life in Me. I tell you now---THERE IS NO MORE TIME FOR THE HOUR IS LATE----Choose Me NOW. TODAY. DO NOT HESITATE AGAIN. Many of the comforts you are accustomed to today will be gone tomorrow and you will be found wanting if you do not abide in Me. All you depend on for stability in this world is crumbling. I am the only base in which you must stand. I will not continue to allow such immorality on this earth. Heed My warnings My people. There is hope for those who walk in My ways. Turn to Me today. 

Revelation 6

King James Version (KJV)
And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.


Jeremiah 14

14 The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah concerning the dearth.
Judah mourneth, and the gates thereof languish; they are black unto the ground; and the cry of Jerusalem is gone up.
And their nobles have sent their little ones to the waters: they came to the pits, and found no water; they returned with their vessels empty; they were ashamed and confounded, and covered their heads.
Because the ground is chapt, for there was no rain in the earth, the plowmen were ashamed, they covered their heads.
Yea, the hind also calved in the field, and forsook it, because there was no grass.
And the wild asses did stand in the high places, they snuffed up the wind like dragons; their eyes did fail, because there was no grass.
O Lord, though our iniquities testify against us, do thou it for thy name's sake: for our backslidings are many; we have sinned against thee.
O the hope of Israel, the saviour thereof in time of trouble, why shouldest thou be as a stranger in the land, and as a wayfaring man that turneth aside to tarry for a night?
Why shouldest thou be as a man astonied, as a mighty man that cannot save? yet thou, O Lord, art in the midst of us, and we are called by thy name; leave us not.
10 Thus saith the Lord unto this people, Thus have they loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet, therefore the Lord doth not accept them; he will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins.
11 Then said the Lord unto me, Pray not for this people for their good.
12 When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.
13 Then said I, Ah, Lord God! behold, the prophets say unto them, Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will give you assured peace in this place.
14 Then the Lord said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
15 Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.
16 And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them, them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them.
17 Therefore thou shalt say this word unto them; Let mine eyes run down with tears night and day, and let them not cease: for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very grievous blow.
18 If I go forth into the field, then behold the slain with the sword! and if I enter into the city, then behold them that are sick with famine! yea, both the prophet and the priest go about into a land that they know not.
19 Hast thou utterly rejected Judah? hath thy soul lothed Zion? why hast thou smitten us, and there is no healing for us? we looked for peace, and there is no good; and for the time of healing, and behold trouble!
20 We acknowledge, O Lord, our wickedness, and the iniquity of our fathers: for we have sinned against thee.
21 Do not abhor us, for thy name's sake, do not disgrace the throne of thy glory: remember, break not thy covenant with us.
22 Are there any among the vanities of the Gentiles that can cause rain? or can the heavens give showers? art not thou he, O Lord our God? therefore we will wait upon thee: for thou hast made all these things.

Isaiah 29:13

13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:




Luke 21:32

32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

Luke 19:40

40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.

TURN TO HIM AND INHERIT THE KINGDOM

Isaiah 65

King James Version (KJV)
65 I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name.
I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts;
A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick;
Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine's flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;
Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day.
Behold, it is written before me: I will not keep silence, but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom,
Your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together, saith the Lord, which have burned incense upon the mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their former work into their bosom.
Thus saith the Lord, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants' sakes, that I may not destroy them all.
And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains: and mine elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there.
10 And Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for the herds to lie down in, for my people that have sought me.
11 But ye are they that forsake the Lord, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop, and that furnish the drink offering unto that number.
12 Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.
13 Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed:
14 Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit.
15 And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord God shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name:
16 That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes.
17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
18 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.
20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.
21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.
22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
23 They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord, and their offspring with them.
24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the Lord.

REFINE BY FIRE

     The last couple of days, the Lord has been speaking to me of refining. I was brought to Zech. 13:9 again about a remnant being brought through the fire. Those who have chosen Him and His Kingdom are finding themselves in a process of refinement, or purging, a purification or smelting you could say. In the OT, we read of silver and gold being refined by fire, so that the impurities would be burned away leaving the pure metal.  This was a delicate process as the smelter would carefully put each piece through this process until the ultimate outcome was achieved. It is in this way that our Heavenly Father is doing the same with us now. We have been given I'm told, a very short amount of time right now to undergo this very process. We need to have already chosen whose army we are fighting for, and be in training for the battle ahead. The last part of the plan would be to rid ourselves of anything that would hinder our hearing from the Holy Spirit for our instructions. I pray that you are making the time every single day to spend with Yeshua, repenting and asking for this refining, this cleansing, to prepare you for what is to come. Please be advised, we do not have much more time for preparing or getting our spiritual house in order. Today is the day. Major change is on the horizon, and much sooner than most expect. Be alert and sober. As long as we follow the King of Kings, the rest of our needs will be provided. We are not to fear. 

Zechariah 13:9

King James Version (KJV)
  And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God. 

Malachi 3:2-3

But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:
And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.

Isaiah 25:6

And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.

Isaiah 48:10

10 Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction

Malachi 3:3

And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.

PREPARING FOR YOUR NEW ASSIGNMENT

July 14, 2012

My children, if you have been listening, spending quiet time with Me, and obeying My instructions, then you have begun to experience the purification process I have begun in My church. I have asked you to prepare your souls for a time that is approaching very quickly. This requires a deep searching, and a commitment to stay the course with Me no matter how much it pains you. I have talked with you about reviewing your lives, purging all distractions that take your focus off Me, and then repenting and asking Me to absolve your sins. If you have been humble and sincere in this repentance, the Holy Spirit has brought to your attention iniquities that you never saw as sin. This is a time of deep reflection, and a time that you must draw close to Me as I lead you through this process. Think of this as an outgoing ocean tide. As My Spirit draws back the veil in front of your eyes, sins are uncovered, exposed, and suddenly covered with the light of My love, just as the sand is suddenly exposed and no longer covered by the water. So as the ocean then flows back up the shore, My love flows over your being and I wash your spirit, completely removing every sin that kept you separated from Me. In this way, you are cleansed, and purified. This is a process that should continue in our relationship each and every day. In this way will My church remain prepared at all times to answer the call of duty that is to come. You must be ready to hear your instructions and move accordingly in My time, and the only way to ensure this is to keep yourselves pure and repentant. I will accomplish so very much in those who are in complete surrender to My will. Just as I spoke in My Word, you too will do greater things than I did while on Earth when under My authority and power. The time is now. Allow Me to wipe the slate clean and let Us begin your new assignment today! Always remember, as well, you have been given the Comforter who will ease the transition for you into your new mission. I love you.

Yeshua

Ezekiel 14:6

King James Version (KJV)
Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations.

Ezekiel 18:30

30 Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord God. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.

Joel 2:13

13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.

John 14:12

12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

John 5:24

24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

A DANGEROUS MESSAGE TO HEAR THEN IGNORE

July 11, 2012

On July 9,  I posted a message Yeshua revealed to me concerning repenting of past sins and dealing with unforgiveness in our lives. Today the Holy Spirit led me to this teaching about unforgiveness, and the difference between human forgiveness, and God's forgiveness. There is a very big difference in the two. Please take the time to watch and listen to this message. It goes hand in hand with what Yeshua spoke several days ago, and will minister to all of us in some aspect or another. I know it has greatly touched me and taught me this day. We can all benefit from this teaching, and hopefully understand what it truly means to be forgiven and to forgive others. My prayer is that all who read this and watch the teaching will indeed finally be free to live the life of a born again believer as was intended by our Creator. God bless you.

A TIME FOR YOUR PURIFICATION

July 7, 2012

This is what I feel our King Yeshua is speaking to us today.

I have spoken to you this week concerning knowing the seasons you are in. I want you to meditate upon this, for I am beginning a new season in My people, My Bride. This time needs to be a time of deep reflection, a time of cleansing, and a time of purging. For some, this process will be quite painful, for others, a light dusting. I am asking at this time that you would search deep into your souls, deep into the past, and bring to the light any secret and hidden sins you may have. Many of you feel you are walking out a life in union with Me, but wondering why you are still feeling empty, frustrated, even angry. Know this. It is sin that has caused the separation from you and I. Sin you may not even be aware of. I want you to go back to your childhood. Think back to the very first hurts you are aware of and ask yourselves these questions. Have I truly forgiven the people that have caused me so much pain? Or have I come to a place of indifference and apathy regarding those things. Because My children, indifference is not of Me. It is not loving, and is the root of more serious issues in your lives. I realize how painful it will be to go back to your youth, but you MUST at this time, extract every hurt and every wrongdoing there has been up until this point. Review each situation, and bring this to My throne. I am here to comfort you through this process. You MUST come to a place of total surrender, and total forgiveness for every circumstance that has caused you to fall deeper and deeper into the sins or fruits of the flesh. Unforgiveness only continues to bring pain and emptiness, not for the ones who have hurt you, but for you , and for those around you.  Slowly, over time, even a slight indifference that you may have, this brushing off of so many things has festered deep within you and is now become a bleeding, open wound. This is exactly where the enemy wants you to remain. He would have you believe that you are justified in how you are feeling, that your anger, your frustration, and your weariness are deserved. Do not believe this lie! I am a God of peace, joy, love, and compassion, and I want to be what is filling your souls. This disease called sin will eat you alive from the inside out. I say again, you MUST go through each relationship, each season of your life and purge the dross. Bring them all to Me as I will cover each of your trials and sufferings in My Blood, never to return to you to infect your souls. This request is of the most vital importance, as you will not progress with Me into your next season until this process has been completed, and the time is NOW. I will be calling each one of My Bride for a very unique and designated purpose in the coming dark days upon this planet. But you can not bring any baggage into this next season. You must travel light, and be able to feel the freeness of having let go of all that has kept you in bondage for so many years. Allow My Holy Spirit to lead the way, as you bring all to Me and then rest in My arms for a time to heal. It is then that you will receive your orders for this next season, and I will guide you in your next move. You can not hear My voice however if you do not clean your temple from the inside out. I must have pure vessels from which I will operate. If only each one of you could fathom My love for you. I would give My life again and again for every single one of you, how precious is My love! So why wait? Come to Me NOW, and allow Me to heal you completely, as I need each one to be prepared for the things I am having you move in so very soon. Listen for My prompting, and bask in My love for you. Take My hands, and follow Me.  


With all My love,
Yeshua

Isaiah 59

King James Version (KJV)
59 Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:
But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.
None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.
They hatch cockatrice' eggs, and weave the spider's web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper.
Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands.
Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.
The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.
Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness.
10 We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noon day as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men.
11 We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us.
12 For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them;
13 In transgressing and lying against the Lord, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
14 And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.
15 Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the Lord saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.
16 And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.
17 For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak.
18 According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence.
19 So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.
20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord.
21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the Lord, from henceforth and for ever.

SIGNS AND SEASONS

July 6, 2012

I feel during prayer this week that Yeshua is wanting to know if we understand the signs and the seasons we are in. We are promised in the Word that we will know these things, but this knowledge is only understood by those who frequent His Word and spend time with Him each day. He wants us to know 'what time it is'. He tells us we are the ones who will not be overtaken, or suprised by the many events that lead to His Second Coming. Many people you talk to about what is going on today will shrug and tell you these things have been happening for a long time, and that history is simply repeating itself. These are the ones who will be caught offguard when tragedy strikes close to home. We have a Father though that cares so much for us, He spells out His plan, in vivid detail, right there in His word. It is to be our instruction manual for life. I encourage you not to be one of those who is going to be caught unaware, because at that point, it is too late for your soul. Repent now, spend time with Yeshua each day, and ask the Holy Spirit to help you discern the signs and seasons we are in. There are blessings beyond measure for those who walk in obedience and endure to the end. We have His promise, let us not ignore the many, many warnings we are seeing every day of how soon our King returns.

Ecclesiastes 3

King James Version (KJV)
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?
10 I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.
13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.
14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.
15 That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.
16 And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.
17 I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.
18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.
19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.
20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
21 Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
22 Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?

Luke 21:34-36

34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Hosea 4:6

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL

July 1, 2012

     There are a very many Christians in the world today who have a very real and genuine desire to please God. We want to do all the right things, and are walking around trying to figure out how to 'be good' enough for Him. The problem is, we are wrong in how we are going about fulfulling that desire to live the life that God intended for us. So many times, we reach for the things we feel God will find sincere, righteous, pure, and humble, but quickly find ourselves disgusted, angry, frustrated, and tired. We will then ask ourselves and God, why? What am I not doing right as a Christian? Why do I still feel empty and lacking? Why is the hole in my heart getting so much bigger? I'm doing all the right things, aren't I? What we are going after is not producing anything.

     To get to the bottom of what is going on, we need to ask ourselves a couple questions. The first would be, where does our confidence lie, especially on Judgement Day?  Is our faith in what we are doing or what He did? We are actually living in bondage, not much different than the Israelites did so many years ago and don't even realize it. We may have an allegiance to a religion or some such practice or custom that holds us in bondage, or we may be living a life of self-inflicted obedience which only leads to an weak and ineffective follower who rapidly burns out. We may feel our Christian walk is actually getting us nowhere. So if we are really striving to be who God wants us to be, what is it that we keep grabbing onto that we feel is "getting us there"? Is it moral purity? If I can just keep my mind and heart pure...then...Is it external righteousness? If I only attend here, say these prayers, dress this way...go to this service...then...Maybe it's compassionate rescue. I should adopt an orphan, visit the sick...then...I definitely need to pray more, I should set aside a time each day and study...then.....This is the battle that rages inside of us as we struggle to find that deeper, seemingly hidden relationship that always eludes us.

     We are sincere in our desire to seek Him with all of our hearts, we just get misdirected. The Bible states very clearly that God hates self-sufficiency. He can't stand it when we do things in our own ability, wisdom, efforts, disciplines, and willpower. In other words, we are acting in our flesh, not our spirit. All of those things we 'do' are good things, but they alone will not produce the relationship we so long for in our souls.  When God speaks of wanting us, just for us, He speaks of complete surrender. He asks to abide in us, and we in Him. Abide is meno, and carries a literal sense of "dwell;" but it also indicates the very significant theological and spiritual nuance of "remaining" or "abiding," in intimate relationship with God through the person of Yeshua his Son. Meno indicates the spiritual reality of believers maintaining and being maintained in close spiritual bonds with their Lord and God. We completely surrender and dwell in Him and He in us. This means, Yeshua now has the opportunity to be Yeshua, but using us as the vessel, or the temple, through which HE continues on in doing those things we seek to fulfill God's will in our lives. We no longer have to think about or figure out what God wants, or what we need to grab a hold of anymore. HE  will bring about all these things naturally through us. We simply allow Him to flow through every fiber of our being and let Him do what He does best, which is LOVE. All of the wonderful fruits of the Spirit then simply flow from us, because we are not creating them to fulfull our flesh, or working towards a long list of good works to show the Father when we are judged. We are told in scripture to put off the old man, Adam, and put on the new man in Christ. This is exactly what it means to be born again of the Spirit. It means we no longer operate in our own means. We only are being used as the channel for His spirit to flow.

     I encourage all of you reading this, if you are having that dark night in your soul, and the battle is raging inside of you because you feel no matter what you do it isn't enough, remember, Yeshua has already done it. When He said "It is finished" on the cross, He meant it. He is our intercessor, and tells us His burden is light and His yoke easy. Abiding in Him and He in you is the only way you will finish the race well. May you rest in this fact and finally find peace in your souls. 


King James Version (KJV)

Psalm 55:22

22 Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

1 Peter 5:7

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Matthew 11:28

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
It was a promise from the Messiah: He will give rest to those who come to Him. It is not rest that is earned.

Matthew 11:30

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light

The yoke that we take upon ourselves is the unity found in a daily walk with Yeshua Ha Mashiach.  Matching Him step for step, we will find that He takes on the weight of life for we who rely on His strength. Likewise, the burden that we carry is simply the ability to live a life pleasing to Yaweh, an ability given by the Spirit of Yeshua living in and working through us.

Isaiah 61:10

10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

Ephesians 4:22

22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

Colossians 3:8-9

But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

Romans 13:12

12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

Romans 13:14

14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

Galatians 3:27

27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Ephesians 4:24

24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

Ephesians 6:11

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Ephesians 6:14

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

Colossians 3:10

10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

Colossians 3:12

12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

Colossians 3:14

14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

John 15:5-7

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
