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.
Deirdre


"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

    1. Hi Lucy! Thank you so much, I'm very happy that you are encouraged. The scripture I try to follow is Isaiah 50:4 from the Contemporary English Version: The Lord God gives me the right words to encourage the weary. Each morning he awakens me eager to learn his teaching

      Knowing that He is using me to help others is something my heart really loves. He gave me a gift and I am happy to use it. I am not a Minister per se, unless you consider that we all are. We are all supposed to do what we can to let people know the good news, and this is my way of doing it. I am grateful that this particular blog was well received, because I wasn't sure how it would be received. It's hard sometimes to remember that we are to fear no man. The shackles of this world can be rather tight at times! That is why I feel compelled to write a book about trusting God. It isn't always an easy thing to do.

      I hope that my words continue to be encouraging. He is a wonderful God, and He loves us so much. God bless you, Lucy, you have encouraged me! :)

  7. Deirdre,

    This was so inspiring-like hearing the words straight from God's mouth to my heart. I always get a sense of belonging when reading your post and my faith is restored. A book of these posts would be awesome indeed. You are a true missionary for God.I wish I could do what you do so well. I especially needed this tonight after hearing of a two year old baby boy found molested, naked and dead in a sewer. It's then I ask,"Why God?" Why the children?" And my faith falters.

    1. Dear Micki, because of the fall of man we suffer such horrible things. It overwhelms us to even consider that someone could do such a horrific act to a little child. Rest assured, God was with that child, and that child is now wrapped in Jesus' arms laughing and carrying on. To be absent from the world is to be in His presence. We can only pray that God's will be done, and although we can't understand why He allows things to happen, we must trust that He will guide us safely through each trial. God's almighty love for mankind will overcome the hate and filth of the devil, and His justice will be served. It is not for us to judge, difficult as that is. I pray for comfort for the baby's family and for strength for Christians to rise up and let the world know that Jesus is the only way to salvation. God bless you, Micki, I understand.

  8. My faith was tested while I was in that POW camp in Iran, but the night before we were to escape I felt someone touch my shoulder and I jerked around to see who it was and no one was there, then I heard "Lori your going home" and we weren't allowed to talk in this camp, and sure enough the next night we were headed out of the camp and back to Shiraz (the closest city). I hope the people that read my book understand that there is the facet of God all throughout the book and what he's seen me through. There is always a reason that we suffer and I'd like to think that the innocent don't feel pain when they perish. Thank you again for your site.
