1/23/2019 A Greater Glory

What are the present troubles you are facing? Know this, that I determined long ago that I would reveal a deeper glory through you that would eclipse whatever trouble you would face. Do not worry, My Child. My glory will be released as you step out in faith beyond the fear that is attempting to distress you. Continue to advance, knowing that never was a battle fought on behalf of My Kingdom that I did not provide for My soldiers. I have ordered a release of resources, refreshment of spirit, and reinforcements to assist in this battle you are waging, so let My victory revive your spirit that it may be renewed in purpose. Resolve to press through knowing that the glory revealed in you will be well worth it. Rom. 8:18-19, “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.” NKJV

1/21/2019 I’m In Your Now

I alone can step into your yesterday, redeeming your past. I alone can see your tomorrow to guide your every step. Give both to Me today and let Me walk with you in the now. Don’t allow the enemy to bring shame and condemnation over what My blood has covered or give place to fear and worry over what will be. Rather walk in My joy today and My peace concerning tomorrow. Forget what is behind and press forward; I AM with you where you are now. Allow My presence to be your comfort and walk forward as My child with unwavering confidence that I as your Father will see to all that concerns you. Deut. 31:6, “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” NKJV

1/18/2019 A Season to Bear Fruit

Many have felt unproductive in their walk with Me and in their ministry. Do not dismay, for I planted you where you are at and your season to bear fruit is upon you. You have submitted to the work of My hands. You have gradually been brought to maturity because you have absorbed the water of My Word, and now you will see fruit begin to come forth. If you will obey My voice and continue to submit to My pruning, I will ensure that this is just one of many seasons of harvest. Do not be discouraged, for you are a Tree of Righteousness in My orchard. Look up, My Child, there are blossoms beginning to appear! Ps. 1:3, “They are like trees planted by streams – they bear their fruit in season, their leaves never wither, everything they do succeeds.” CJB

1/17/2019 Word of Warning

Be careful, My people. Not everything clothed as a sheep is one, and not everything presented as a blessing is one. For you live in a day where evil is called good, and good evil. This is not only in the world but has infiltrated My church in the form of compromise. Have I not said, “I am a jealous God?” My people – My very own church – has sold itself to the highest bidder, profaning My Name and ignoring My ways, asking, “What does it profit us to serve the Lord in holiness,” and “What does it profit us to teach truth?” If you knew My Word and kept My Covenant, you would know and understand. Return to Me, and I will return to you. Seek Me, and you will find Me. Ask, and I will open to you. Try Me and see if I do not open the windows of heaven. Do not forsake My covenant – it is one of peace and one of life. This is the profit of the church, that I am a God who sees and answers. I am God, who in love has stayed His hand waiting for you. To those who will walk in fear of Me, I will call you Mine. For I am jealous for My Bride, My Church, and My covenant with her is pure. I am coming for her and am calling her forth without spot or wrinkle. The time of decision is upon you. Will you choose Me? Mal. 3:16-18, “Then those who feared ADONAI spoke together; and ADONAI listened and heard. A record book was written in His presence for those who feared ADONAI and had respect for His Name. ‘They will be Mine,’ says ADONAI-Tzva’ot [the LORD of Hosts], ‘on the day when I compose My own special treasure. I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him. Then once again you will see the difference between the righteous and the wicked, between the person who serves God and one that doesn’t serve Him.” CJB

1/16/2019 I Love You

My love is not contingent upon your performance. As I am, so it is. It is My nature to love. There is no need to strive for it, it is yours. This is how you are to be towards Me and each other. This is how they will know you are Mine – that you love one another. Love unifies, hatred divides, so love one another and hate sin, removing yourself far from it. Let your purpose in Me be ignited by your passion for Me and for one another. Everything else will fall into proper perspective when you understand the depth and greatness of My love for you; unending and never-failing, and once more today, I say, “I love you.” Now love one another. I John 4:19-21, “We love because He first loved us. If someone says, ‘I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must also love his brother.” NKJV

1/15/2019 Offer Your Best

I desire that what you offer Me be pure and holy. Do not say, “It doesn’t matter,”- it does. For I observe some of My people give more to their own pursuits than to Me. Have I not loved you with an everlasting love, and given My very best to you? Oh, that My Church would desire the same! They offer Me leftovers, when I have prepared a banquet, and give Me what is left of their time and energy. Remember the woman who poured expensive ointment on My feet? To those who will give Me their best, I will see to it that their sacrifices are remembered. What you present to Me, I will multiply back to you. Make Me your priority. Let what you offer to Me be unblemished with attitudes of obligation, rather give Me your best with delight, just as I have granted you all of Me with joy. Mal. 1:6-8a, “A son honors his father and a servant his master. But if I’m a father where is the honor due Me? And if I’m a master, where is the respect due Me? – says ADONAI to you priests which despise My Name. You ask, ‘How are we despising Your Name?’ By offering polluted food on My altar! Now you ask, ‘How are we polluting You?’ By saying that the table of ADONAI doesn’t deserve respect; so that there’s nothing wrong with offering a blind animal as a sacrifice…”

1/14/2019 Awake and Arise

Awake and arise, O Church, arise, for my sheep were meant for war! Those who guard and those who keep, gather them together that I may train their hands for war. For you wrestle not against flesh and blood, and you must be prepared for the battle. Do not be negligent in this! There’s a weariness that has descended, and I want to revive My people that they may move in My Spirit as My early church moved. Gather, My people! Come together, My people! Arise in the authority and walk into the proper positions to which I have called you. I will go before, and I will teach even the smallest member of My church to move in power. Awake and arise and be filled again with My Spirit! Ps. 144:1-2, “Blessed be the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle – my lovingkindness and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer, my shield and the One in whom I take refuge, who subdues my people under me.” NKJV

1/2/2019 Come Away

I have heard the cry of your heart and have prepared a place for you to come away. The act of separating yourself is important in the coming days, as you enter into a new season; a new position in Me. Come away, that I may pour into you, providing rest, nourishment, and power. This is a time of consecration; a time of sweet communion with Me. Song of Songs 2:10, “My beloved spoke, and said to me: ‘Rise up, My love, My fair one, and come away.’” NKJV

1/1/2019 Emerge

This is the hour, and this is the time for My One, True Church and Bride to emerge. Emerge from your chambers and with one voice declare your name – for you are Mine. Emerge, and wear the garments of holiness, releasing the fragrance of heaven in the world. I have empowered you to be My representative and spokesperson, operating in signs and wonders. Do not fear what man can do to you – for you are My Bride, My Beloved, and I have called you forth for such a time as this, that you may reflect My glory in the earth. s you do, I will also come and release the fullness of My Spirit in the world. Joel 2:16-17, “Gather the people; consecrate the congregation; assemble the leaders; gather the children, even infants sucking at the breast; let the bridegroom leave his room and the bride the bridal chamber. Let the priests, who serve ADONAI, stand weeping between the vestibule and the altar. Let them say, ‘Spare your people, ADONAI! Don’t expose your heritage to mockery or make them a byword among the Gentiles. Why should the peoples say, ‘Where is their God?’” CJB
