A Word from our Lord

Dear Reader,
We who are born again all hear from God.  Whether or not we want to listen and obey is up to us.  I considered not posting this, because I wasn't sure how it would be received.  But I was reminded (by Him of course) that I am to fear no man, and that I must trust in Him alone.  He will reach who He wants to through me or you, and I am just the conduit He uses in this forum.  There will be many more that I will post.  As many of you know, the book I am currently writing is about trusting God.  Let this be another way that I conquer fear and instead, trust in Him.  He is my Savior and Redeemer.  May God bless  you today and fill you with knowledge and understanding, and may you rest in that peace He has so graciously placed in your soul.  Here is a message for you as it was written through, but not 'by' me.

"I will always protect and guide my children as long as they seek me.  It grieves me whenever I see them in pain.  If they would only believe that I am able to fix all their hurts, and that I want to guide them so they don't fall into traps, then their lives would be so much fuller and happier.

"But the flesh!  It is a constant battle for us all!  I fought for you all to My death.  I won victory over your oppression, I took back the keys of death, and I felt all your pains and sorrows.  I gave My life for yours!  Why do my children not see this?  They could save themselves so much time and energy!  This is the hard part--living in the flesh and trying to walk in the Kingdom.  It is a cosmic pull on both worlds. There is a constant battle raging in the flesh between the natural desires and the heart's spiritual desires.  This battle is exemplified in the Spiritual realm.  My angels fight with swords of Spirit as you should too.

"Don't be fooled thinking you can ignore it and it will get better.  That is a lie manufactured by Satan himself.  It will not get better nor go away without each one of you fighting.  There is no room for indecision now!  The time has come when my Church, my children, the chosen, must take up the full armor I have given them and get dressed and ready to win victory after victory!  Raise those swords and run at the enemy like David did!  Don't put yourself in a position where the enemy has brought you down so far that you must look up from the place you are to see his face standing over you with his sword ready to pierce your heart!

"Do not ever let him get you to a place where he is above you.  Ever!  Never forget that My blood is enough!  My suffering is enough!  My grace is enough!  Draw strength from ME!  I will (I have) led the battle charge!  Look up and see ME!  Look forward and see ME!  I'm in front, Jehovah Nissi, the Banner of victory.  We are victorious!  We can not fail!  Believe that with all your heart!  Do not forsake Me!  Trust Me, pray to Me for strength, for courage, for wisdom!  Pray for everlasting peace and redemption.

"Pray that we save our brothers and sisters from the raging fires of Hell that are creeping across the land!  Grab hold of them!  Be there for them!  Carry them on your back.  Point to Me, show them your victorious Leader!  Show them My love and My light!  Let them see the truth, the faith, and the trust in your eyes.  They will not be afraid if you come bearing the good news of safety and salvation.  They know something is happening, but they don't know me, so they don't understand what it is they are feeling!  The world is shaking, it is trembling!  The time is coming.  The vibrations of such a cataclysmic force is starting to wake everyone up.  They can't pinpoint what it is, but they know something is different.

"They are feeling the end.  This is their last chance to make up their minds.  Some need convincing.  You all must help them see--death or life?  Choose life!  Don't die my children because you wouldn't live!  My love for my children is great.  I need you all to help Me to help others.  The world, which is ruled by Hell, is hiding the truth about Me and what can happen to someone who invites me to come into their hearts, to be their Lord and Savior. 

"The world doesn't believe in God.  They have fallen for the lies. Chance after chance my people get.  My mercies are new each morning.  Yet they don't seek Me.  They think I am something someone made up one day.  You must help them to see the truth.  Their souls are at stake.

"Fear not, I am with you!  Be of good cheer!  I am making you an ambassador!  I love you with all my heart!"

"So it was, when the Philistine arose and came and drew near to meet David, that David hurried and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine."  1 Samuel 17:48

"I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live" Deuteronomy 30:19

 "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”  John 16:33

We are not walking in the Kingdom by chance.  There is no "random" choices by God.  We were chosen!  How lovely is that!?  Someone, God Himself, decided He wanted you and me!  Was that all there was, just picking and choosing?  No!  He also purchased us with the blood of His Son!  Jesus willingly died a horrendous death so that we could sit in heavenly places with Him.  The price He paid was far greater than you or I could ever endure.  He gave us eternity through His precious blood.  He gave us life everlasting!

We, His born again saved children, undeserving as we are, were hand-picked by God Himself!  Can you grasp that, dear Reader?  While He was creating the heavens and the earth He looked through time and saw your face!  While Jesus was bloody and beaten unrecognizable, He looked through time and saw you!  He did this for you!  Why?  Because He loves  you!  You are His.  You never have to fear being left alone.  He can't do that.  He won't do that.  He promised to never leave nor forsake you. 

He had to fight for you.  We did everything we could to shut the door on Him.  Every time He knocked we had another excuse.  Maybe you were of the age where it just wasn't 'cool.'  You may have thought if you started going to church all your fun would be over for the rest of your life - no more drinking, no more partying, and oh no, that probably meant going to church on Sunday morning and you really needed your sleep from partying Saturday night!

I know that's how I felt!  There would be too many restrictions on me!  Oh, how I wish that I knew then what I know now!  God is watching whether we're saved or not.  He knows our hearts.  When He places the desire in our hearts we can fight it, we can ignore it, or we can "come to Jesus!"

Where would I be if I had but answered the door in my youth?  I know I wouldn't look as old as I do because I would have known the peace of God.  I wouldn't have done so many stupid things.  I wouldn't have hung out with the wrong crowd, I wouldn't have drank myself to sleep because of a broken heart, I wouldn't have talked like a sailor!  I wouldn't have believed that my life was useless.

What did I trade it for?  Something I didn't know.  I didn't know joy!  Pure unadulterated joy!  My heart sings!  I laugh!  I feel so amazed just thinking about the power of God!  I see things differently, I enjoy church more than I imagined.  These brothers and sisters in Christ would do anything for me because we are family.  I CRAVE Jesus!  I yearn for Him!

Do I feel like I'm missing out on fun?  Oh good grief, no.  I have more fun now than I ever did before.  My friends are true friends.  They rally around me in prayer for my needs. They care for me.  They are not like the fair weather friends I used to have who left because the last can of beer was empty.  No, these friends stay around to help me pick up the pieces of my life!  They know Jesus - He is our Savior.

I found out that I have gifts and talents, natural and supernatural.  I am God's child.  I was created in His image.  Do you know what that means?  It means that I look just like my Father!  Just like my brother, Jesus.  We are sons and daughters of the Most High God!  We are kings and priests.  We are chosen!

Aren't you glad you were?

If you are reading this and are not sure if you have Jesus in your heart, you can ask Him in right now!  Just click here and with all your heart confess the Prayer of Salvation.  Don't be afraid, we are truly rich over here, and love meeting new family!  Don't wait any longer.  God loves you, and so do we!  And when you give your life to Christ, all the angels in heaven will rejoice!

"But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God's instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted." 1 Peter 2:9-10 Msg 

"Or imagine a woman who has ten coins and loses one. Won't she light a lamp and scour the house, looking in every nook and cranny until she finds it? And when she finds it you can be sure she'll call her friends and neighbors: 'Celebrate with me! I found my lost coin!' Count on it—that's the kind of party God's angels throw every time one lost soul turns to God." Luke 15:8-10 Msg
