Important: Word from the Lord – Received 3/6/14

I have been praying for some time that I would learn to hear the Lord’s voice and know that it was Him who was actually speaking to me, and not something I made up, or the Enemy telling me words that were not from the Lord. I wanted to be sure and knew it was the Lord speaking so that I could become more obedient to Him, and have intimacy and a more personal relationship with Him.

I know that many in the Body of Christ are really going through very hard trials right now, and it seems to be in every home.  I also know that a lot of people have been feeling that something is about to happen but don’t know exactly what, but there just seems to be a knowing inside of us telling us that something is about to happen.  It is uncanny that a lot of movies and t.v. shows all seem to have a theme of end time type of things as their main plot.

Well, last night I was awakened about 2:00 a.m. and I heard the Lord telling me in my mind the following:  (remember it says in the Bible “My sheep hear My voice”).  He told me that we are going to be in a very very hard time and that it was coming very soon.  It would be something that would affect the whole world, not just America.  He told me that He is the One who is bringing this judgment and not Satan.  He said that we had to really press in and seek Him with all our hearts NOW, or we would not be able to be prepared for what we will soon have to face.  That we ourselves need to learn to hear His voice and know that voice, and that we will not be able to endure the time that is coming in our own strength, but must be totally dependent upon His strength to see us through.  He said that we would have to give up our present pleasures in order to seek Him, for one example, our t.v. time in the evening.  I personally work very hard all day long, and thoroughly look forward to watching favorite t.v. shows after dinner and just relaxing, but now I would have to give up some of that time before going to bed, so that I could use this time instead to go into my prayer closet and draw close to Him.  Closer than we have ever been before, closer than we have ever pressed in before.  Repenting of any known sins in our lives, crying out to be cleansed and made more holy, washed by the washing of the Word (reading the Bible), seeking to walk in obedience to that Word by the help of the Holy Spirit, seeking know His presence and what His will is, and praying for whatever He tells us to pray for, and just drawing close to Him.

Then He also told me that I was to put this message on my website & facebook so that others might be prepared for the days ahead as well.  So here I am, typing this to you and to those who will “hear His voice” telling us all to get ready and to see the big picture, for our very lives are about to change radically in the near future, and we must become prepared now. (Remember the 10 foolish virgins and the 10 wise virgins in the Bible.  Those who had been prepared and had their lamps trimmed with oil got to go in with the bridegroom, but those who did not have their lamps trimmed and had not prepared their lamps with oil did not get to enter in.  WOW!  Let’s get ready dear sisters and brothers.  It’s not too late yet for us.

New Year’s Resolutions

As the New Year approaches, I often times think about the resolutions we make in order to make our lives better, our weight lighter or our finances bigger.  Then I think about the Word of God and how much He desires 100% of us, every year, all the time.  Although I personally do make New Year’s resolutions for the sake of having “goals”, I pray that as we make our New Year’s resolutions, that we will keep in mind that our relationship with our Lord means a renewed devotion and commitment, a seeking to know Him better and better and to become more Christ like than we have ever been before because we love Him so much.  This renewed devotion and commitment comes from a true desire to want to please Him and bring Him joy, and an obedience to His will instead of ours, so that He can be proud of us, and also so we can useable and chooseable in His sight to do many wonderful things that will bless others and show what He is truly like to them.  If we make a New Year’s resolution to read our bibles every day, but we do not act like a Christian in our hearts, then our resolution is more for “appearance” or to make ourselves feel “more spiritual”, rather than  having a true devotion.  I know one thing, as I seek the Lord and draw closer to Him, I am blessed beyond measure and my resolutions no longer seem necessary. Praise God for His amazing love!

Delight in the Lord

Psalm 37:4 ( Real Delight in the Lord ) “Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”  This is  most likely one of the most misquoted scriptures in modern day Christianity.  You will hear prosperity preachers use this verse to speak words of encouragement about finances, getting rich, attaining material possessions and having instant gratification.  However, the verse is extremely clear in the first part of the scripture.  It says “delight in the Lord”, meaning to “abide in Him” or to “take Joy in the Lord”, meaning that you are literally seeking the Lord and seeking HIS desires.

When we take delight, it is often times at something that is planned, done, or told to us.  Therefore, it can even come in times of obedience.  It is easy to say “Thank you God, you are amazing” when things are going well, but to “delight” in the Lord during times Continue reading

Quick Thought: Amazing Attributes of God

God has so many attributes that He wants to display and He has chosen us to be the vessels to display His attributes through.  I can just see us at the judgment  seat all being rewarded for what we have done and the attributes manifested in each other like:  love, kindness, caring, gentleness, patience, forgiveness, tolerance with one another, compassion, a desire to protect & nourish, that each one has been given to display.  So we can also look for these attributes now in each other,  & appreciate each individual who God has made for the different yet visible attribute which we see in another person which really stands out in their life.
