PROFOUND LOVE
Sis shanna
 
Love is the ultimate expression of love Himself, everything in the
universe was created by and in LOVE, everything created in  earth was
created in love by Love for us in love.
It was His creative expression of love that created everything for us
who was in His thoughts  before the universe was created.

 He chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world, this love
which we can barely grasp in our finite minds has loved us for all
eternity, He has loved us with an everlasting love.
He created us in love but we are blinded by the darkness and cannot see
His magnificence.  He created us in love to be His expression to the
world and because of the great darkness of the soul we cannot see that
He is love, so He sent His son who came as a great light to shine in the
darkness to bring light and love into the hearts of men.  As we received
His love for us, His truly immense sacrifice for us for all of the sin
and darkness in our lives, He lives in us, yet love is never for us
alone it must be given away, that has always been His eternal plan.

Love is sacrifice, it cannot be given without sacrifice, because love is
not selfish, it must be given away, the greater the sacrifice the
greater the love.
If we receive love and we do not give it away, we do not have the love
of Christ in us, it is not meant to be kept but given away.  It gives
birth to life, as when those who carry God's love too the nations, it is
not done with out sacrifice in some cases they are to sacrifice their
very own lives to bring forth that great seed of love to others, it is
in lives spent, given over to the work of God.  Yet this love gives over
to life, it springs forth, life springs forth from love.  Souls are
waiting to receive the love of Jesus and His great sacrificial love for
them, they are waiting in darkness they cannot see for satan has blinded
their eyes to the light, so we who carry the light, love must find them,
they will know Him when they see His great love coming forth from us,
they will see and it will give forth new life. we must not keep it for
ourselves it is not to be kept in that way for love is not selfish, it
is giving.
We look at how the love of the parents give birth to a child, one of the
greatest gifts of love the Father has given us.  the Father has given
birth to everything in the universe, all started from seed, the seed of
love.  Everything was created in pairs, mates, feminine and masculine,
all carrying the seed of life.
You must know the Fathers great love for you, your name is carved in the
palm of His hand, He knows everything about you, He knew you before you
were formed in your mothers womb.
He knows your comings and goings, he knows what you think before you
think it, there is no place you can go without His knowing.  He knows
your rising and your falling, your sitting and standing,  He watches
over you with such love and ready to perform His word, you are kept in
the palm of His hand sonothing can touch you that he has not chosen to
do so.
He watches what you do, He watches your life and how it unfolds, He
brings about circumstances so that His plan unfolds, ever loving you, He
rejoices when you rejoice and sheds tears when you shed tears He is
there when you must bear under the hand a great trial of affliction, He
allows to bring forth life in you.
Life was never meant to be about us, it was meant to be continuation of
love, flooding the world with His light and love.  The world is an
illusion, it is darkness that has overshadowed our eyes.  It is meant to
deceive us and keep us from the light and for the light to swallow up
the darkness so that  LOVE  PERVADES.  It is meant to deceive us, it is
meant to turn sacrifice to selfishness which is darkness.

We were given the word, Truth to open blind eyes, so that we would come
out of the darkness and choose light, love and to receive it fully in
our lives.  Yah wants us to see Him, He wants us to see His great light
but we cannot bear it, our souls are still in darkness, we cannot see
His great light until our hearts are so filled with his light and love
that we become one with that light, that love, we become bearers of that
light to the world.
Scripture was given to us to lead us to the light, the word is light and
love it reveals the LIFE, the life of love, but as long as we hang onto
the world we are deceived and cannot see the truth.
Once we are  one with love, light we become one with the word which is
truth, one with Yah.

Everything is born of the furnace of affliction, even in nature, we see
the great pines in the forest, who live for thousands of years and
cannot bear new  life until a fire consumes them, and the cones fall to
the earth and the great heat causes the cones to open and the seed falls
out, is opened and invades the ground upon which it sits and new life
comes forth.

Everything that Yah has created works together for the good of the
other, symbiotic, He began with Adam and Eve, they were to work together
as a team to bring about His purposes , yet the darkness overtook them.
Everything Yah created coexist with everything else.  We are to help
lead each other to the light to love so that we become one with Him.
It is all about love, it is all about becoming one with Love. The world
cannot see these truths because they are blinded, the church cannot see
these truths because they are so bound up in the words themselves that
they cannot see the light of truth.  They cannot see Yeshua, they need
more light so they can see Him face too face.  We all need to be so full
of love so we can see Him.

 

For Such A Time As This

Sis Shanna

Greetings, I want to share with you what the Lord has revealed about the book of Esther, this has been revealed to me some time ago but it was not the time to share it. Now is the time, as it was shared with Esther, "FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS."

 

The Lord is showing us the times we are in, and as we look at Esther and see that the King is a type of Yahweh God. Vashti is a type of the church, the BRIDE of Christ that the Lord had called to himself to radiate her beauty, which is really as in a mirror the Lord Jesus Himself. But she has refused Him, she has refused to come to Him and to radiate that beauty to the world, so that He is revealed to the world, through her. She is showing rebellion, that she wants to do her own thing, and the Lord will have a bride without spot or wrinkle. The king chooses to get another Bride because of the bad example Vashti presents to the world and her influence on other women who will also become rebellious. They gathered all the fair, beautiful to look upon, fresh new vessels, virgins, that have not wedded themselves to the world and the world system that have not been adulterous, with an eye for other lovers.

 

So He has called for a new BRIDE, one that is obedient and that has prepared her self, been cleansed 6 months by oil of myrrh, which is also used for embalming, meaning that the self is dead, myrrh is also a holy cleansing oil, a purification oil, and six months with sweet odors for purifying. This represents the process of dying to the old self and alive to God, to allow all the sin to be washed away. to allow for the cleansing of those things that are displeasing to the King.

Esther represents the Remnant Bride, this is she who has been prepared and is obedient to the King, she is prepared in the last days to be used to bring many into the kingdom, She is in total submission to Yeshua, or Jesus Christ and He will use her mightily.

 

She is the Remnant because there are few that make it in, for narrow is the way that leads to life, and few that be that find it.

He pleads with His bride to turn back to Him but so few do.

We are all able to enter into the inner court and into the Holy of holies by the blood of the lamb, but so few touch the scepter, meaning, they do not accept the Lord as Lord over their life as their supreme ruler. He has reached out but they have not touched the scepter, because they want to live their own life in the imaginations of their own hearts.

 

But the remnant bride, the ones who lives by obedience to the Lord and have died to self. They do not trust in the arm of flesh but by the Living God who provides for all their needs. The Lord has brought them through the wilderness and they have allowed Him to try them, not like the rebellious house, that moan and groan and complain, because he took them out of Egypt, (the world) and how they want to go back. Not worshipping the idols of the world.

 

Esther had favor with the King because she exhibited such beauty, and the beauty we want to have comes from within, and we can only get that by being completely submissive to the Lord. He bought and paid for us by His blood, we belong to Him and not ourselves.

 

Esther was marked by the beauty of a humble heart and love, love for her people and for the king. But what much of the church exhibits is pride and love for self. So the King will choose for Himself another bride, it will be out of the remnant that is those few, who have chosen Him which is what He has always desired of the people who would love Him above all things, and would not be rebellious.

 

 

Rom 11:3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, they have digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.

Rom 11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have left for myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to Baal.

Rom 11:5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

 

The bible does not really talk about the church being the bride of Christ specifically but it is those who are wed to the Lord, intimately. We cannot be married to someone we are not intimate with, and submissive and obedient. If we are the body of Christ as the word says we are, we must be connected to the head, and the body is connected to the head just as a branch to a tree. There cannot be any breaks, or you have a wounded broken body. There has to be unity, everyone cannot do their own thing. The body is intricately put together, all systems work perfectly together symbiotically.

 

This is why the Lord will chose those who have truly chosen Him over the world the flesh and the devil. How can you say you are the bride of Christ when you have prepared yourself, when you spend little time with him getting to know Him. How can you say you are connected to Him when you are not abiding in Him continually like the branch to the tree.

 

You have not been prepared because you have not been taught to be prepared, you hear a 45 minute sermon on the bible every week at the church of your choice, yet has it taught you how to be intimate with the Lord, do you really know Him intimately, what you are being taught is giving you much head knowledge but no intimate knowledge which you can only get by being attached to the head intimately.

It certainly is not about money, tithing to the church so they get rich and you get poor, no it is about knowing Him and His heart for the lost and the poor, the widows and the orphans. He will say to you I do not know you.

 

Esther was called for such a time as this to save her people, and I believe that if the Lord has called you to be one of the remnant then we must reveal the truth to those who do not know, and are not prepared for the Lord, to save the people of God from what will be their destruction from Haman the devil. We are to fast and pray and seek Yeshua for the rest of the time we are here, in our physical bodies. We are to cry out to the king for mercy, to petition the king for the people of God, that are being led astray by the enemy the adversary, the wicked Haman, that is bringing in seducing spirits and doctrines of demons.

 

We are to be ready to be used of Him as His vessel to bring many souls to Christ.

 

There is coming a day when Haman will not only persecute the people of God, but he will try and kill them and them so it is very vital that we be prepared as Esther was, and that we become the remnant, those few who seek the Lord to know Him and the fellowship in His suffering for it is in suffering that we become as gold, tried in the fire. We can't have the world and it's idols and be the true people of God, the remnant. The sheep and goats will be separated, the wheat and the tares, this will leave the remnant of God. Are you one of them? A tare or a goat? Or are you of the true remnant of God.

There has always been a remnant, those who choose to follow God and those who choose to go their own way. There are also a remnant of evil, but we do not want to go that way.

 

Eze 6:8 Yet will I leave a remnant, in that ye shall have some that escape the sword among the nations, when ye shall be scattered through the countries.

 

Rom 9:27 And Isaiah crieth concerning Israel, If the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, it is the remnant that shall be saved:

Rom 9:28 for the Lord will execute his word upon the earth, finishing it and cutting it short.

 

I believe that the Lord will show Himself so strong in the presence of those who hate His people, that fear will come upon all that want to destroy the people of God.

 

Mordecai is also a type of Christ. He became great in the Kings house, the people were afraid of him, those who had done evil and he became great in power and strength.

 

It is time to turn back to God, brothers and sisters. the Lord would have you to know that we are in the last days, and there is little time left for preparation, He is calling you to Himself, to put away all the distractions and the activities of the world and seek His face, to pray for the rest of the body of Christ, to repent of your sins and to willingly go through the purification process the Lord is taking you through.

 

The Lord says: I am merciful and slow to anger but the hour glass is almost empty and so if you have not wed yourself to Me, you are wedded to the world the flesh and the devil and you will be caught in the a fury of the whirlwind that is coming, and I want you to confidently remain in me and not fear.

 

I will protect My own if you are hid in Me, and not in the world. It is the favor of the King that will see you through, "SUCH A TIME AS THIS."

 
 
 
 
 Trust Me
Beloved Shoshanna
07/24/2011

Beloved,
You must be desperate for me, your heart must cry out to me for more and more of Me and my love.
 Pour out your heart to Me in this hour, if you pour your love out toward Me in this hour I will manifest Myself to you and My  love will sustain you.  For I am love, I am light, I am God you need much light in the dark days ahead.  You need much light  to see through the darkness, much darkness is coming upon the whole world, did I not warn you of this time, I told you there was much deception ahead, great deception, many spirits unleashed into the world, much darkness it will seem too great to bear but  have no fear.  I have overcome the world, and so will you in Me.

The light of my word will light your path, you will know where I would have you to be and where to go, I will speak to you in My word, I will make myself clear to you, I will speak to you in the silence, you will hear a word behind you. I will unveil My secret things and you will be directed by Me to what I would have you to do. Seek me and My word for strength as you will not survive the days ahead in your own self reliance but it will be in Me alone.  Trust Me.
You must be in Me continually as well as My word because you will not be able to discern in the darkness without my light, you will not be able to see in the darkness without my light shining forth.
If in doubt go to my word do not lean on your own understanding in anything  I continually am speaking to You, revealing to You truth so you will grow to maturity as Sons of God.  The enemy has many plans of deception to draw you away from me, to distract you and to tempt you,  get you to take wrong steps, but I will lead you, go to My word in the secret place I will lead you in the way you should go.  Eat My word, did I not say you cannot live by bread alone, but every word which proceeds from the mouth of God?

You will not be afraid of the things to  come because you will walk in My love, nothing can harm you, it is my highest will for you.
You were called before the foundation of the world to be consecrated to Me, to be conformed to me,  why would I allow harm to come to you, if you are in me, if you are abiding in Me, you will remain in perfect peace, even though the the dangers surround you.   I called you for a purpose, and my purposes and promises shall come to pass. Trust Me.

Don't allow any bitterness or unforgiveness to hinder  love for love is great power, it overcomes, it is able to forgive, even those who persecute you. Love cannot be quenched when it is not hindered by your negative feelings, it is stronger then death.
It is your weapon beloved, love me with all of your heart and your neighbor as youself, watch the victories as they are won, people are touched, they are drawn to me, even your enemies can be won by love.
I am speaking about this to you because you must prepare in this hour to bring to fullness the love I place in you, draw near Me beloved and cry out to be immersed in My love
Cry out to Me, and I will immerse you in My rain, My healing rain,  My outpouring of love, rivers of love, of life you need this is this hour and to come.
 I will pour out My pure liquid love.  You must become desperate enough beloved.
Understand fully, I live in you, I have made it my habitation, and as you commune with Me, and I in you,  you commune with Love and your love will be perfected, there is no fear in love, perfect love cast out all fear.  but the the more of the fullness you receive, the more power to  touch lives.
  So my dear one, why should you fear, though the darkness falls and their is no light you have light living in you to lead the way and to light your path, but be sure you are full of My holy oil. More and More of Me. Cry out for more light.
Be aware of Me at all times, walk with Me, let Me manifest My Presence in you to others, every place you go people will know there is something different about you, they will be touched, they will be drawn and they will want to know where it comes from, this will be your invitation to reveal my love to them, and my purpose for them.
Trust in nothing of this world, it is passing away, and the world is a distraction to My bride, don't let the distractions overtake you, shake them off let go of the world, and cling to me alone.
Trust Me.
 
Being Conformed To His Image
March 8,2011
Shana George
This is something that I have been pondering as I have been studying, if it is useful to you and you think it will be useful to others pass it on. I believe it is the most important thing we must do in this hour, not to give desire a lot of high sounding things, we must learn to walk in Him first, just like a baby must learn to crawl before he walks if he walks and never learns to crawl he will have problems all of his life in the area of learning.

It came to me while talking with the Lord that it seems that the focus of spiritual growth is being perverted to being something it is not.
Spiritual growth is being conformed to God's image and being completely submitted to the Lord Romans 8:29.
Somehow this has been totally overlooked in a quest to be "somebody" to do great things, to have a name.
Oh my I do not know where that came from but it is not the Lord. It is such a great challenge in this life to even be conformed to the Lord. To walk as he did in love, humility, meekness, kindness, and patience, and death to self in complete submission to the Father and to his Spirit.
If we cannot be conformed into his image and likeness in this life, how will we make it to heaven where that is heaven and everything is as Christ, and sin shall not enter. In fact the opposite of His qualities is sin. Hate, pride, arrogance, ready to fight for ones rights, mean, impatient with others, and living for self.

All power is the Lord's. If we possess any power it will be His living in and through us, but unless we are able to walk as He did and is, and submit completely to God, we won't be able to access the power that is in us. He will not trust anyone with His power that is not absolutely submitted to Him. The Disciples had learned these things, they had submitted and were all of one accord and they were consecrated to Him and His will alone.
Christ has to be formed in us, His ways, His walk and His attributes, and we must die to self, deny self, so that He can live and move and have His way in and through us. The Lord never lived a worldly lifestyle, he was in fact very humble and lived in humble means. the disciples were oblivious to the lifestyle of the world.

Jesus Christ is not going to give us true power until we walk in His steps. Galatians 2:20 am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Galations 6:14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

That should be our sole purpose as we go through this life to learn to walk as Christ did, and to bring others to him and to teach them the same. It has been lost since the Nicene council. Why because the church had become worldly, and their head knowledge made them reason they could not live like that.
Yet that is the whole purpose of sending the Holy Spirit to live in us so we could learn to walk in that way and to lead us, to teach us and to live through us, by faith we are to know this.
Once this is acknowledged His Presence is acknowledged we become aware that he indeed is molding us into His Image and we can walk and talk with him every day.
This is for everyone that is born again of His Spirit. This is not some strange new teaching, this is the word, it is just that the church ignores it. They have basically devised their own teachings so that we have to depend more on the church structure rather then by the Spirit of God.

Recognizing Christ Spirit in us is woven into most of the bible. It is the only thing that will carry us through hard times. It will be the hearing His direction and following where He wants us to go, it will be in abiding close to him so we can hear and be directed.
The religion being taught today will not carry us, yes we can pray but God is not some far off God He is as near as your breathing in and breathing out.
How can we be resurrected without the spirit of life within us. He IS the resurrection and the LIFE. John 11:25Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
How will we be lead to safety, without Him leading us? Are we going to call our Pastor and ask him how to get out of a dangerous situation?

The key is the abiding, the key is the communion with the Lord through his Spirit, the more we do it the more the love flows between us.
We must be quick to repent of any wrong, or misstep so that communion continues to flow.

The early church was not caught up with the things of the world or their ways. So much of the church is so far away from the teachings of Christ and the early church. Jesus has not changed He is still the same today as he was yesterday and forever.
The church has come to teach men to follow their doctrines and teachings rather then Christ and what he and the disciples taught including Paul. but what was taught has been perverted to worship the letter instead of the Spirit of God.

The whole counsel of God is good, but we must read it by the spirit of God not by letter, not by doctrine that has come from reason rather then by the spirit. The word comes alive as He is alive when we read by the spirit. And he will lead you through your life through the word, but He will also lead you in time of need without the bible or his word not available except in your heart. This is why he tells us to hide the word in our hearts.
The reason we let him lead us by His word is not because he has stopped speaking, but because we can get off into other areas and by other spirits if we do not know His voice. Basically what He speaks to us will be tied in with His word.
The main thing is to KNOW HIS VOICE
There are many other voices today that would like you to follow them to help them to deceive even the very elect.
So it is very important that our life is on Him, so he can lead us to safety or home. so he can teach you. If you do not rasp these truths you will not be conformed into His image.
The Spirit of God lives in you brethren if you have been born again by His Spirit,. He isready to commune with you, ready to lead you and guide you through life He is as near as speaking His name. Draw near and he will draw near to you.
in Yeshua's name sis

Listen For The Sound Of The Trumpet
 03/03/2011
 Beloved Shoshanna

Beloved servant of God, look up, not around, be watchful, be ready, did not I say I come as a thief in the night, don't think you can know when I come, for no man knows the day or the hour, but to look for certain signs.

Keep your garments clean my beloved one, to not let the enemy take you away from My Presence. There are many distractions and things drawing my bride away from that time with Me in the secret place. didn't I say I would keep you from the trials coming on the whole earth, from the terror by night and the arrows by day. It is not for you to know the times and the seasons, but I have told you to watch for Me, not to watch the signs and the bad reports.

I said, "will there be faith on the earth when I return?" Yes beloved, you will need great faith in the midst of the storms that are coming upon the earth.

If you cannot be patient in the trials I have given you, how will you patiently trust me when you have a great need and cry out for my help. How can you trust Me, when it seems like there is no answer in sight, will you continue knowing that I am never late but right on time.

There are going to be times when you think I do not hear your prayers or are not going to answer, but how would you gain great faith if I suddenly give you all that you ask for. There would be no patience for learning.

You are hearing of wars and rumors of war, and earthquakes in various places, 6And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.  Do not look to those things look to Me, the author and finisher of your faith.

Do not let fear overtake you,  this is the devils plan to deceive even the very elect, to get you to look at what he is doing instead of what I am doing. Looking at his schemes will surely bring you fear, for he wants to bring you down, he wants to destroy the truth, he is a liar and the Father of lies.

He has deceived My church though they do not see that they have bought the lie of the serpent, which brought about the first man's fall, he blinds men's eyes to the truth. They have chosen the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. They are even now being led by satans voice, following after the ways of the world, and the opinions and minds of men and  choosing to do so, rather then being led of me.

They look to words to tell them what to do by mans wisdom. My words are pure, they are Spirit and life, they put your feet upon the path to life yet they choose to not listen to me but take the wide road leading to destruction.  They hang on every word that comes from man, and accept as truth, before they even come to me and ask, is this thing so.

Such a deception satan has conceived even to deceive the very elect, who follow words of men's wisdom, who look for signs but not from me.

Man's curiosity brought him death in the garden, and brings death to all who will listen and feed on the serpents voice.

To hunger for knowledge is to hunger for the forbidden fruit, even the church seeks books to give them head knowledge rather then from the knowledge of their maker, can they make the rain fall upon the just and the unjust, can they know their heart and what is in it, or the sun to stand still, who can know but the creator of all heaven and earth even I the giver of all of life.

Only I can lead you through these perilous times, mans wisdom can do nothing, it is as foolish as taking the hand of death.

Did I not say I would keep you in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on me and to trust me with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding, but acknowledge Me in all your ways and I will direct your paths. Is that not so simple, yet man wants to look for the ways of man to get him through the times at hand.  Men's plans will fail them and come to nought.

 

Can you not see you  have been seeking knowledge from sources that are not of Me, nor by My hand. You are being deceived just as Eve was in the garden, for you are seeking knowledge that comes from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. I gave  the first man all they needed, I was their source of all of life, yet they could not be satisfied with the all that I gave them, they wanted to know more.

I will lead and guide you, just as I did the first man, but you must listen to My voice and know mine from the evil one. without discernment you will not stand.

Eve was led astray just as My church has been led astray by the lust for the world and its things,  lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes ad the pride of life which is man knowledge that brings pride, his success in life. Eve wanted to have the same knowledge and be as God.

Seek no knowledge but that which comes from Me.  My words are spirit and life and only by My words and My life in you will bring life.

God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;  but He dwell with in all of his sons and daughters who walk not after the flesh but My spirit.

If you try to save your life, you will lose it, but if you lose your life for My sake and the kingdom of God's sake you will find it.

I will not tell you words that itch your ears to make you feel good, So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper [in the thing] whereto I sent it.

You are in a spiritual battle beloved, your weapons of warfare are not carnal but of the pulling down of strongholds, for you wrestle not with flesh and blood but against principalities and powers against rulers of darkness in the world and against spiritual wickedness in high places. So put on your whole armour of God given you to be able to stand in the evil day that is upon you, so that you will be able to stand against the wiles of the evil one.

Don't buy into his schemes to pull you down and your abiding in me.  Your enemy is the devil do not  be fooled, he does come as an angel of light with a little truth, his words are sweet to the ears, or they can bring you to fear and to not know the truth when you hear it, so you will not stand in faith  but will stand in quaking fear.

Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.  Is this not happening even now?

Do not fear what man can do to you, but fear Me the living God who has the power to put you in hell, though I love my chosen ones who fear me and seek me only, the door is closing and I speak forth that you must be ready and your garments clean with your lamps full of oil and to spare because I soon will shut the door, just as I did when Noah and his family and the animals were all on the ark

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

I warn you because you are Mine, and I do not want you to be fooled by what man has conceived and the the devil is behind, trust me and My word for I lie not and I have told you I will care for My own in the hour of trial.  You are My son, you are My daughter if the Spirit of life lives in you.

Be ready,  be ready, be ready, be alert, be awake for Your time is near.  Be listening for the Sound of the Trumpet, the last trump.

  
 
Do Not Fear Facing the Giants

2/11/2009

Recently I watched a video on TBN, I was looking for a particular program and happened to see that they were playing "Facing The Giants".I am not a big TV watcher, nor do I watch movies, but do like to watch a Christian program once in awhile.
Generally I prefer my bible and hearing from the Lord, but this turned out to be a word from the Lord and He spoke through the whole movie, for some that is not an enjoyable experience but when God speaks in my spirit, I listen.

 The movie was not something I would particularly want to watch when I learned it was about a football team, but I was prompted to watch it anyway..
Now I understand why, it had such a profound message for the body of  Christ and myself in these end times." That with God nothing is impossible", and not to fear facing the giants. I will relate some of the story and then show you what God showed me.

As I watched the movie, the Lord began to show me things as  the story line continued, He was showing me lessons the young football team was learning and how it applied to my own life..
If you have not seen this video, it is about a High School team called the "Eagles" led by a  Christian coach. He was leading them to the Lord and  teaching them to honor God in everything, whether they won or lost.
 At the same time they were learning how to overcome hardships, and challenges.  To press on and never give up, to trust God in all things, and praise Him in all things..  When they got discouraged, their head down, he would say who can do all things in Christ, who strengthens you? They would answer "We can". He would tell them they were learning to be overcoming Christians by the test they had to go through.

The Eagle represents the overcoming Christian, eagles are not afraid of anything, and they face head on into the storms of life.  For me it is a symbol of my goal to be an overcomer.
I forgot that  I have two pictures of an Eagle sitting regally on a ledge, and a wolf standing looking down on him, yet knowing the eagles strength and talons he only observes looking for a way for a surprise attack.
The eagle is undaunting, he doesn't move, but he is listening, and watching waiting for the time he will rise up in the wind, as it goes under his wings. Powerful message.
 I also have a painting  my husband had made for me that is an eagle with full wings landing on branches, it reminds me of the prophecy in Ezekiel 17:1-10.  I didn't ask for that picture he just bought it for me, God is speaking through those pictures.

 I know that our Lord is preparing us for the times coming, there is a message for all of us. The early church were all overcomers, and we are called to that great calling as we stand for the name of Christ in every situation, amid persecution, as well as storms..
 We do not have time to be caught up with the things of the world, our eyes needs to be on the prize.  He is preparing us to stand.

 The young Eagle football team did so well in their season they got an opportunity to play in the championship
They had to face a team called the Giants.  These were huge players that had a very tough reputation.
 This young team may have seen themselves as grasshoppers when they went to face their opponents, but they were in fact eagles when God  moved them with the the power of the Holy Spirit.  They trusted, they didn't back down, they pressed toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Once the team learned that Jesus lived inside of them, and nothing was impossible they had no fear, they knew all things were possible.  The Eagle Overcomers won the game and the championship at the last minute when a very small player made a field goal at a distance that would be normally impossible, but it was Christ within him that made that long goal and it showed how Jesus in them moved with precision in a game in which they were outweighed and out experienced.  Yet with God nothing is impossible.

There was a lot I got out of that movie about trusting God and not fearing our enemy, and how God blesses faithfulness to Him.often in material ways, just to encourage us.

It brought to mind how the Moses sent up men to spy out the land of Caanan, and they found it was everything the Lord had told them.  Num 13:27  And they came and told him and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it.
Num 13:28  Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there.
Num 13:29  The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan.
.
Num 13:29  The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan.
Num 13:30  And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.

Caleb knew that they could overcome all those great peoples, because he trusted in the Lord God and His strength and power to over come them, just as David did when he faced Goliath.

This is the difference between those who trust God and those trusting in the arm of flesh.
They had the Lord with them wherever they went as long as they continued to trust Him.
 We have Him living inside of us so we just have to get out of the way and let him overcome our enemies, trials and mountains in our life.
We must recognize continually he is inside of us and we can speak to the mountains, the storms, and the enemy that comes against us, and they shall be removed. Faith not fear.

Num 13:31  But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.
Num 13:32  And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.
Num 13:33  And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.

And because of their evil report and cowardice, none entered into the Promise Land except for Caleb and Joshua and the children of the following generations.  And Moses died and was buried, he never saw the Promise Land because he disobeyed the Lord in striking the rock.
 After he took all the Israelites through the wilderness and went through all the trials and tests so that they could enter into the land of milk and honey Moses was unable to enter in because of disobedience. this is a lesson we need to keep in mind. 

The Israelites were there ready do enter in, but instead they feared what they were facing, they forgot that God was with them. They feared the giants of "what if's", and did not not trust the strength of God to carry them through. After God never left them the whole forty  years,  He fed them with manna, brought water from a rock and their shoes never wore out those in all those years.
 He gave them victory over every army sent out to destroy them, yet they believed not so they did not enter in.
We can no longer see ourselves as grasshoppers if Christ is in us we can command mountains to move and storms to flee, our bodies to heal and our finances to come in line with God's will for our lives. We just need to believe in our God, who never fails.
We can command demons to flee and set the captives free and be thankful our names are written down in the book of life. Praise the name of the Lord, Yahweh!
This is who who we are in Christ, we are His chosen vessel, he speaks through us, we become His hands feet and mouth. If we are led of the Spirit we are the Sons of God., it is Christ in me, the hope of glory.

Mar 11:23  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

1Jn 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Mar 4:39  And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
: Joh 14:12  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.

The works that He is talking about are miracles, signs and wonders so that unbelievers come to Christ, it means healing the sick, feeding the thousands with little, it means casting out demons, it means commanding the circumstances to cease in your life and to protect us when harm comes our way.
Speaking to storms, that are coming at us, help in times when plagues are about, for it shall not come near our door, because we are abiding in the shelter of his wings..Psalms 91.
This is not speaking riches into our life out of covetousness, but it is for bringing in and working out the true kingdom of God.

We are facing the most difficult times ahead, but God has given us the authority to speak forth His word and  command storms to cease, to overcome dangers and challenges in our lives. we do not have to be as grasshoppers in our own sight.  It is all of him and none of us, we can't take credit for all the healings, deliverances, and even revival, it comes from Him, within us..
Joh 14:23  Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

There is nothing we cannot overcome, we must stand in faith in the face of our giants and know greater is He that is in me then he that is in the world.

How do I know that? Because the word of God has said that if we love him and Keep His commandments, the Father will love us and the three will come to live inside of us. How much power can that be?
Now that we know He lives within us then our lives can change drastically but we must walk in that knowledge we must walk it out. We will get challenges and test but if we do not give up, but continue on pressing in, we shall overcome.

I find that we can be taught principles but often we don't grasp them until the Holy Spirit teaches us Himself, this happened to me, and because I had not grasped it fully, I got discouraged with my circumstances..
I was taught these truths long ago through out my walk, but it wasn't until the Holy Spirit revealed it to me, fully that I began to grasp it. I know the test come and go but his mercy endures forever.
Ask him to teach this to you, He teaches us when it is the right time, He is never late, he is always on time.
He will teach us all things.. 1John 2:27
There is no fear
, but fear itself. Love conquers all fear!  Hallelujia

The Armour Of God Warning

December 26,2009
Beloved Shoshanna,

This is not a Christmas message but one that is connected to another message I have not yet typed that has been shown to me in 2 Thess, these are the times we are living in, and the Lord is allowing all that is coming to pass to wake up the church. (I don't get many messages these days).
He is showing us here how we can overcome.

(From time to time I have begun to type a message that is of utmost importance to the believer and after it is almost done the keys will begin to erase it on its own unless I can stop it.
This happened again today, erasing not in just one place but two at the same time, going so fast I could hardly stop it until it erased almost half of the message. I believe the enemy of our souls does not want this message to go out, because he is gaining ground in some believers lives.
Another thing that was happening was confusion would suddenly without warning come to my mind, and a sudden overwhelming tiredness, and I could barely see out of my eyes but I shook it off and began the message again, it came back until the enemy was sent away.)

Armour Of God, Warning!

Recently I have received so many emails from other Christians asking for prayer for a Christian family member who have been drawn into the occult, witchcraft, pornography and many similar sins, this is becoming so common and heart breaking for those affected. Often destroying marriages and families, this is clearly an attack of the enemy.

It really grieves my heart, as I am sure it does God's.
I went to God and asked Him, " Why Lord?"
I heard clearly, "Because they do not have the their armour on" Without the full armor on you cannot withstand the constant attacks of the enemy who is sent to destroy the life of the believer in these last days.
The heat is going to be turned up as hot as a furnace, just like Shadrach, Meshach and Abendego had to endure.
So many Christians are already falling before the heat is turned up. How shall we stand if we do not have our full battle weapons and armor on.
Are we not called to be soldiers, in the Lord's Army?

The first piece of armor is to gird ourselves with truth. You cannot gird yourself with truth if you do not love the truth and hide it in your heart, cherishing the truth of the word of God, is taking nothing away nor adding.
Without the truth girded, you will not have on the shield of faith because they work together. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
The truth is lacking in many pulpits today and there is now as the prophet Amos prophesied a famine of "hearing the word of God". Amos 8:11, this prophesy is being fulfilled in the world today.
The watered down word has been taken all over the world, and believers will not be able to stand all the fiery trials that are coming without true faith, and faith comes by hearing, (the truth) of the word of God. Not a watered down version, this is how the believer shall be deceived and many, now are deceived because they did not have a love for the truth. This is why we must have the shield of faith on along with girding ourselves with truth. These are crucial to our survival during the days ahead, and by that I mean being an overcomer.
The truth is not preached from many pulpits today, the whole counsel of God, instead something that fits in with their opinions or favorite doctrine. In fact many do not even use scripture in their messages.
This is a prelude to the great apostasy that comes before the antichrist. I believe the apostasy has already begun..
Apostasy occurs because without the true word of God in your heart, when great hardships comes, persecution, and tests which require great endurance the one without the truth will not be able to stand in (true) faith, and will wonder about what they have been taught, doubting even the gospel of Jesus Christ and so they will fall away.
Turning to their on devices or mans, and turning away from God.

Every word that comes forth from the mouth of God is His word, but it will not contradict anything He has spoken at any time from the beginning until now. We cannot throw out what we want and add to what has been said, and so many today do not want to hear the whole word of God, if it is taught from the pulpits believers will love the truth, the whole counsel of God, just as we love the one who spoke.

Shodding our feet with the gospel of peace, this is the sharing of our testimonies of what Christ has done for us and taking the gospel of Christ to the world.
How does the word say we overcome? By the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony not loving our lives unto death. We must always be ready to give our testimony of what we believe.
I make note that few now are taking the gospel to the world, or even to their own neighborhood.

We must also have on the helmet of salvation,
not allowing any uncovered area for the enemy to penetrate. One of the areas that the enemy often begins his attack is in the mind, and if you do not have the helmet on he will begin to put thoughts into your mind, doubts, evil imaginations, and lust.
2Co 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

The breastplate must also always be in place so that the heart is protected from the fiery darts of the enemy. Jesus is our righteousness, our love for the Lord must never fail, He must fully reign in our hearts.
2Co 6:7 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
We keep the breast plate of righteousness on, so that our heart is protected from the love for the world and the things of the world which brings about the pride of life, the lust of the eyes and the lust of the flesh.
1Ti 6:9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition
The love of the world and love of money has become the enemy's greatest trap to believers.

Jesus is our righteousness and we must remain fully covered in His righteousness, and our love for Him and to be desirous to be like him.

Being watchful always, this is very important because the enemy walks about as a roaring lion seeking who he may devour, we are in perilous times and we need to be ever watchful. If the owner of the house had been watching the thief would not have come in and stolen from him. Luk 12:39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
That is what we are seeing today. the thief comes to kill steal and destroy but Jesus came that we might have life.
A Christian must also battle with the sword of the spirit which is the WORD OF GOD. The word of God is a weapon of warfare, which is used to speak," what is written"

The sword of the spirit which is the word of God, us to be used as our spiritual weapon against the enemy, to speak to our circumstances and to bind the enemy with the word of God.
2Co 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, watching with all diligence, praying supplications for all saints. And to pray for family and brethren and all men

I am being shown a parallel of a believer to a soldier in the military.
Often during battle soldiers pray contunually, some find the Lord in the military as they have to completely depend on Him to save their lives from death, so as Christians we must be praying diligently for protection, as well as keeping a fire in our heart for the Lord, and counting us worthy of the kingdom.
.

2Ti 2:3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
Just as a soldier must endure hardships, a soldier will die in the battlefield if he is not constantly watching for an enemy to come in a blind spot, or sneak up behind him unaware, so he must be ever watchful.
He must also have his full armor on, he wears a helmet to protect his head, and often protective gear to protect other areas of the body.His rifle is his sword, which he quenches all the fiery darts of the enemy, a gun being symbolic of the sword of the spirit.
Soldiers lay down their lives for God and their country and for their comrades, they die to their own desires and serve their country with commitment, just as we are called to do, to be ready to die for the Lord.
2Ti 2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

This is the whole armor that we must have on all the time, every piece.
If we are uncovered at any time, we can be drawn away and enticed by our own lust,deceived, or discouraged.
We must take this very seriously. don't leave even a crack in your armor or he will push his way into your life.
That is why it is so important that we have our full armor on every day we leave the house.
It isn't just to keep us from falling away but from discouragements.
The Lord has allowed the enemy to test us with sickness, loss and discouragements, and many of us did not have our full armor on, so he was able to discourage us until we woke to what he was doing.

We can see how severely God allowed satan to test Job, if he did not have a strong love and faith in God, and the Armour of God he would not have survived such attacks.

I might add though it is not in the list of armor pieces, worship is a powerful weapon against the enemy.
We see this as worshipers were sent out before the armies going to battle. 2Chron 20:21-22

Love is also a weapon, love is as strong as death, and many that were sent by the enemy were made like milk toast by walking in love.
Pro 25:21 If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink:
Pro 25:22 For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee.
Amen and amen!
The Lord has give us everything we need to over come the devil and his demonic cohorts.
This is a warning and a reminder for the days are evil.
Being close to the heart of God, is very important but without the weapons, you can be led away from that position by becoming distracted by the things of the world, little enticements the enemy sends your way.
Please Church test every spirit, stick close to the word of God, the Spirit will teach you , if you will trust Him to do so.

Be Ye Separate

Beloved Shoshanna

11/29/10

Love not the world, neither the things [that are] in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

Beloved,

Are your ready for my kingdom? Walking in the light and love with your neighbor and with Me?

Suffering with Me, brings about humility, knowing My love strengthens your faith.

My kingdom is full of light, not man made light but My eternal light, it is so bright that only those who are full of My light and love will be able to bear it.

Did I not remind you to keep your lamps full with more to spare, so that you would
be full of light.

So much of My word has been picked over, chosen as to what will makes certain teachers comfortable rather then what is needful.

There is a great misunderstanding that I came just to save from hell and then one can go about living their life as they please on earth and then go to heaven when one dies and may enjoy this life to the fullest while spiritual perfection is not even given a thought. My truth is picked over and taught what will benefit them in the physical rather then the Spiritual many today do not even know what My word says, because it is not studied. It is an incorrect interpretation of my word to teach that you can pick and choose what you want in the word and then go to heaven saved.

Yes I came to save you from hell because sin had separated you from Myself and I cannot even look upon sin, sin is darkness and I am all light. How can you think one could live in My Presence while they live in darkness, and not being filled with light before heaven.

By humbling myself and shedding my blood in a perfect sacrifice I opened the door for you to be redeemed, but that did not mean a return to the sinful lifestyle was an option.

I laid my life down for you, and gave you an example to live by. I said sell what you have and follow Me, many just left possessions behind, but they followed me.

I said no to the devils plan to give me all the worlds goods if I would worship him as I fasted 40 days and nights in the wilderness.

Yet he has offered the same thing to many who are called by My name and by taking it, they worship their enemy that hates them, and they do not know what they are doing. The world and all its pleasures is in the devils territory, so he uses it to draw My people away to himself.

The early church did not accumulate possessions, and enjoy a worldly lifestyle as the pagans did.

They were learning how to share in community, they were learning to walk by the spirit, sometimes, even being transported from one place to another, they were learning love and humility, walking in peace praying and caring and helping one another in love.

And sharing the word everywhere they went.

They were able to endure and trust me for the persecution that came upon them, their eyes were not focused on what the government was doing or those around them but they were looking to Me to deliver them.

You will not be able to endure unless you turn from the world and be separate.

This world is passing away.

You will still be in the world, you must work to care for your family but you do not need to be involved in what is going on, you are a holy people, that is what you are being perfected to walk in, holiness. Be ye separate.

I tell you to come out of her and do not partake of her ways, the time is short, and you must be prepared spiritually, do not participate in the worlds games and distractions.

Do not despise suffering it brings about humility and faith, I know those of mine and they are preparing while there is even a little time, but I say do not be involved with the distractions of the world or you will be deceived even as many are now who call themselves mine.

If you seek Me you shall find me, I am not far from you. I love those who love me, and I will give you strength to go through what ever trial I send your way. But your time and focus must be on Me.

Yes beloved My love endures forever, I bring blessing into the lives of those of mine who want to change into My image, you must take the first step by giving Me all of your will, thoughts and emotions, and then I will test you to see where you have grown and will show you and you will be able to see your weaknesses, and grow a little more in each area.

Find a solitary place and seek Me, learn if me for I am meek and lowly of heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Desire to hear from me in My word, you will not be deceived by the false prophets that have entered into the church if you know Me and My word.

The more you know me, the more you can know I will keep you under the shadow of My wings. I am your husband.

 

 Sound The Alarm

belovedservant

08/15/2010

Woe to those who are rebellious and stiff necked, who take counsel but not of Me and are covered , but not of My spirit.

That have not asked of me for direction, but make plans and laws and follow the Pharaoh of Egypt, put their trust in him and the arm of flesh, rather then the living God.

See what I am about to do, they seek to protect their treasures, rather then seek My voice that would lead them to righteousness, but they will not  have it.

Even many of those called by My name seek after, a smooth word that fills them with pride and deceits.  many of the prophets, are prophets for profit and go the way the wind blows, where they  can be heard and fill their treasuries.

They no longer cry out to My people to repent, who are living high lives, and doing things they think hidden from the eyes of others, or the worldly those who follow after their flesh instead of me.

There is a famine in the land of the word of God, the truth is not being told, the mysteries and revelations of God are only heard by my set apart ones.

It is the obscure of my children who wait and watch, those that do not want a name and title to depose the king of glory., but remain hidden in Me.

Many look at what is happening in the world and have veils over their eyes, they do not have eyes to see, nor ears to hear the truth, because of unbelief.

Woe is me they will say when my judgements continue in the earth, they will cry out to the Pharaoh to save them but it will he will bring about many deceits, to deceive them even more, yet they will not turn to me the living God and repent of their ways.

Did I not tell you these things would come?  Many of my people will cling to their riches and will cry out to me for help, some even in anger, but even as their riches are moth eaten and corrupted they will not want to let go. they will be destroyed just as Babylon is destroyed.

Have not I said,: If My people which are called by My name would humble themselves and pray and seek MY FACE
AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN I would hear from heaven and forgive their sins and will heal their lands.

Many bend their knees and cry out, and even pray, but will not humble themselves and turn from their wicked ways, loving the world more then me.

Few are warning of my coming judgements, yes you are seeing the beginnings of woe, so few believe, and many are not being warned to save them from the fire.

My people are being drawn from the truth, they are drawn more to the world and its views, and none are warning them.

Where are My Isaiah's, My Ezekiel's and Jeremiah's and John the Baptist that will sound the trumpet so that My people will turn from their ways.

They are all seeped in the imagination of their own hearts, they hear what they want to hear.

So no crying in the streets is heard, they go on as they have done before, doing what is right in their own eyes.

Yes, I am long suffering, and slow to anger and merciful to thousands. I love those who love me.

If you refuse the one who speaks from heaven, how will you obey those I put over you. Those  I put in power for your good or evil because you are a stiff necked people. How will you stand when you have no food to eat or your children are held hostage by evil men.

Only by abiding in Me continually.

Come learn of Me for I am meek and lowly of heart and you shall find rest for your souls.

 

 

Word For My Called Out Ones

My called out ones, must be led of My spirit in this hour, they are known by their humility and meekness, without this there is no true complete abiding in My Presence. without humility you are like a well without water. for My life comes from a broken laid down life.

When you walk in My life, people will be drawn to you as they were to Me.  They will see you as one who lived the truth, who laid down their life as I did., as a corn of wheat falls to the ground and dies it bears much fruit, and so will you My child.

they will come to you and ask how they can know me as you do, this My child will bring many thousands to Me.

So come as My little children, and take my yoke upon you just as beast of burden are yoked together, they move as One,, effortlessly

they go where they are led by the driver,  No more striving, only do what you see me doing, say what I say, and go where I tell you to go.

think not of the trials you are going through as it is the fellowship of My suffering, and it is those who have suffered with me that shall reign with Me.  This My child is the way of the cross, it is not the wide path but of the narrow way, the way I took, and as those who follow me take.

I have called you to myself, I give you love and compassion, and tender mercies, much grace is yours and strength in Me,

Abide in My Presence and know My love, it has not changed, as I said I love those who love Me. I am the same yesterday, today and forever.

Seek me in this hour rather then what the world is saying, listen to My voice only, as you are being bombarded with voices from everywhere, the enemy would have you take your ear from My voice, he wants to distract you so You do not continue in the secret place.  Seek me in the quietness of the day, shut out the voices from around you, I shall keep you in peace. I love you.

Fellowship Of His Sufferings

Belovedshoshanna

June 12,2010

That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; Phil 3:10

Many of you have experienced much pain and suffering, and wonder why you are enduring so much not only physically but the chasm of separation growing wider and deeper among family members and those you hold dear.

Yes I came to bring a sword, not to bring peace.

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

Many are suffering in the area of finances, yet Paul said he counted all things that were gain to him as loss for the excellency of knowing Me, counting all things gained as dung.

Have I not exhorted you to love not the world nor the things in the world, for the world is passing away and the things in the world.

Some of you have entered the heavenly realms as you spend much time with Me. Just as Paul received a thorn in His flesh so as not to glory in what he saw, and heard, many are experiencing a thorn in the way of some suffering in the body so as not to exalt self in what you have seen.  I would have My bride to walk in humility and meekness before Me and one another.

Many have chosen the path of death to self and the fellowship of My sufferings, and as you  have prayed so I have answered.  These I know are mine, for they have chosen to lay their life down with me.

Being conformed to My image and likeness in My death.

You will find yourself in situations where you will only have Me to trust, there will be nothing in the world to trust, not family, friends or anything that proceeds from the world.

I have chosen this path, as I chose the Father, knowing it was only Him I could trust, not my family nor my friends and so it will be with you.

You will be betrayed, and persecuted yet as You look toward me, I shall give you grace for every situation.

I told you before that much chaos  and violence was coming, and unless you are totally in Me, conformed to my death not fearing man, not loving your life, these events would seem unbearable, but so I have been preparing you for these things.  There is nothing to fear. Fear not , for I am with you, give every circumstance over to me trusting Me as you are  are carved into the palm of My hands, I have promised to be a shelter from the storms.

I have created all things and so I build and I pluck away.

I have called and chosen you for these times and for this hour, these times shall reveal the sons and daughter of God, for you shall walk in the Spirit and not the flesh.

You have set your heart upon me, and are looking to me only, not trusting in the arm of flesh that will soon be like a house built on shifting sand, you shall see with your own eyes what befalls those who walk in iniquity and are proud building their houses on man and in lofty places, rather then humbly allowing Me to build.

You need strength and fortitude in the coming days, to not live your life according to what you see in the world, for many are the plans of the evil one, and I am preparing My judgements, live your life according to my will in all wisdom.

I will give you strength, and "My grace is sufficient, for you my power is made perfect in weakness."

All things that are foretold to come are unfolding according to My word. My judgements are already in place, be prepared so you will be watching at the door for my return, and prepared for My coming.

You must know me, the only living God and be conformed into my image, this was My purpose in coming to earth, so that you would gain victory over the world flesh and the devil, and receive My eternal life.

The world is preparing their monetary system and all things are waiting to unfold in the times ahead just as I have spoken through my prophets, so You know My coming is near.

Every imaginable event is about to take place, so know you cannot trust in mammon or in the world or anyone in the world for the world is passing away, and all evil with it as it even now continues in it's evil plans.

It seems as if the earth is being destroyed by man, but it is My judgments coming to earth, nothing comes unless I send it.

Keep your eyes on me, as you see the earth imploding unto itself, the plans of men are failing, as they have sought to be as god's themselves,  and as the enemy continues on his plans of destruction, I shall allow nothing lofty to remain as man thinks he can do only what I am able to accomplish.

As you see these things coming to pass, know that the time of end is nigh, it is all as grass and shall pass away as grass, but you shall reign with me, for those who suffer with me shall reign with me.

You suffer now, so you will not suffer with the world, you shall be overcomers walking in the spirit doing greater things then I when I walked upon the earth, doing exploits for My kingdom, so be at peace knowing you will be hid away in the time of trouble.

The time is near, be waiting and watching.  I am with you always!


Forgiveness Unblocks Love

Beloved Shoshanna

6/6/2010

 There is among you much fear and trepidation regarding the state of things and that which is to come, but I say open your heart to love for love casts out all fear and forgiveness releases all the fruit of the Spirit into your life.

When you forgive those that have hurt you or hate you,  you will release all that I am in you.  check your heart do you find it difficult to love, to be kind or merciful to others, long suffering and patient.

If you examine your heart to see those who may have hurt or done evil to you,  you will find un-forgiveness.  Forgive everyone that has ever hurt or wounded you in some way, and you will unblock love, and all that I am will come forth from you. If you can not find one that has hurt you or wronged you, you will find no un-forgiveness still residing there.

Release those to Me, so they will be open to what I want to do in them.  Un-forgiveness is a hindrance to love and all the fruit of the Spirit, it blocks you from fully receiving My love and recognizing how much I truly love you and to  be able to fully love others.

As my virtues ad attributes flow from you, people will see Me, they will see My light in you and glorify Me.

When you are able to love Me and others freely you will be prepared for the coming days, you will not fear the coming events or even fear death, for perfect love cast out fear.

Un-forgiveness will harden you to love, it will even harden you to the things of God, it will keep you from going deeper in Me, it will steal your joy.

I desire my people to have a hunger for me, to long for Me, to seek me, to run after Me, but until you come to know how much I love you, you will not thirst for me, nor long for me.

When you open your heart and begin to forgive all that have offended you, My love will begin to pour forth.

When you recognize that forgiveness is a sacrifice, and an offering and as you forgive others you will be forgiven. You will see the truth of how much I love you, and all the love I have for you  to lay down My life for you, and as you do the same for others your eyes will see how great My love is for you, then you will seek more of me, you will long for me, you will begin to receive more and more of My love and in turn will open your heart to love others.

In that day beloved you will have no fear of death no fear of judgment, because you have learned to love as I love, you will see Me face to face for I am love.

You will have no anxieties regarding anything that takes place because once you will know how much you are truly loved you will have no fear, trusting Me and My word, for I change not.

There are many spirits gone out into the world deceiving many, making my word of none affect, trying to get to the kingdom some other way, but I am the door and there is only one way into the door of life and that is the way of the cross.  All who try some other way are thieves and liars and come by way of deceiving spirits.

But you know the truth and the truth shall set your free, open your heart to forgive and I will come rushing in, and you will know love,  My love, My grace, My joy and peace.  My mercies are new every morning.

Know that what people do to you, that are offended by you it is not you they hate but it is Me they are offended by, it is me that they refuse to search for, to seek ,to repent of their sins, to know  and love the truth that they may be set free.

So as I desire all to come to repentance, I love freely, my gift of life is offered freely, but they will hate you because they hate me and refuse my gift of life.  I say forgive and you shall be forgiven, love as I love and love will break down all barriers in the heart.

Look into their eyes and love them, for it is Me loving through you, they will see me, and I will be glorified.

If you do nothing but love others in the world and in My body you will show your true love for Me, because love is all the law and commandments and I say if you love me, obey My commandments.

Love is what we must accomplish in the world that others may come to Me.  Love opens the eyes to My light, and truth.

Many love darkness more then light so they will harden to the things of God, refusing the truth, loving their sins more then Me, so they may not come to the light, but your loving prayers and attitudes will open up the hearts of some to allow Me to touch their lives, leave all to Me, put everything into My hands and surrender all to Me.

 

Prayer to Our Beautiful God

Lord we love you, you are so beautiful! We long for your Presence,
we long for you to take us higher,
we want more of You.
Give us a hunger, for more of Your Presence.
Lord we want you to flow through us, we long for Your love to fill us
and flow through us to others.
Lord You are all we need..
We long for you!

We must go lower, until we are a helpless grain of sand,
until we are completely utterly abandoned to You,
laying in Your hand that you may fill us with your Presence,
until there will be no more of us but only You.

Lord we want to be so full of You, that there is no more room for self,
to do our own thing.
Lord we want to bathe in Your Presence. Lord cover us,
fill every cavity of our cells,
with Your Presence, so that we can not even think our own thoughts,
speak our own words but speak only that which comes from your lips.
That our mind is that of Christ, thinking only that which is true, noble, just,
pure lovely words,
speaking only good, virtuous and praise worthy words.

Lord You are our Beloved, You are our One desire. We want to see you face to face,
you are beautiful to our eyes,
we long for Your touch, we long for Your voice to speak to us.
Come Lord Yashua, Come Lord Yashua, we look for that time when we will be made
One as your bride.
You are My Beloved, You are my friend. Come away with Me My love.......

Lord look at us, Lord we want to be beautiful to you, we want to be pure,
we want to have you look at us with Love.
Lord take away all that offends that we might be without spotless and white.
Lord we are Your bride and we look forward to Your return
so that we can be forever side by Your side.

Come to Us Lord, come away with us Lord. We love you, You are our heart.........
We want to bathe in Your Presence, for there we find fullness of Joy.

Unfailing Love

Belovedshoshanna

Beloved, I come to remind you of my unfailing love, to remind you that it is beyond the breadth, the length, the depth and height of anything you can conceive.

 

The whole universe was created in My love, by and through Me. With you in mind and everything you see that I have given to you is from my goodness, my love and kindness toward you.

 

I want to bring you to complete knowledge of My love, because dear children, when you have perfected love flowing through and from you, you will not fear, though the earth be removed and mountains thrown into the sea.

Nothing shall separate you from my love, tribulation, distress, persecution, famine or nakedness, peril or sword. Nothing shall separate you from my unfailing love, nor angels or devils, in other realms, nor principalities and powers, things present or things to come.

Nor any other creature shall separate you from My love.

 

Many of my precious ones still have a fear of death, that reveals that your heart needs to let in more light, to remove all darkness. Your lamps are lacking oil for the next transition, that is soon to come, you must not be without a full lamp with ample to spare.

.

The righteous are taken but no one has taken it to heart, yet the righteous are removed from the evil to come.

 

Beloved, I came to give you new life, with my death burial and resurrection as you laid down your life you are risen with me to heavenly places where I sit with my Father.

 

I came to manifest my life in you, so you would be filled and perfected with my love, and to be a light to the world.  Perfect love cast out all fear.

 

You must grow and allow me to manifest my life in you, so that when done with this school called life, you can shed your mortal bodies and take on immortal bodies, and then you shall cross through the door into the other side, it is as simple as that.

 

I want you to know dear ones, that you will take nothing with you but the fruit you bore, as I manifested my life to you.  Where ever I am LOVE IS, and you will see great beauty and in the heavens the beauty and knowledge is miltiplied beyond what you can imagine in creation on earth to be, everywhere there is joy, and peace, love is all there is.

 

Love is a gift, if you do not learn to  give it here, you will not be able to live in it there, for where lack of love is, there is only darkness, so be filled with My light while there still is light.  The devil and his angels are darkness not light so they cannot live among my loved ones.

Love flows out from the heart of God and touches and changes everything and where light is darkness flees.  Those that choose to walk in self, never receive the light, they live in darkness. It is only when they finally "See the light" that they begin to change and manifest my love and light to the world.

 

Your purpose here is not to just get saved from hell, it is to be vessels or bearers of light, so that your life or love changes everything it comes near. People respond to Me, when they are touched by love.

 

The work you do that is done from love that comes from  Me into and through you, and those who receive it are blessed and changed and will absolutely never be the same.

 

Love passes knowledge, knowledge will be done a way with, as will prophecy and tongues, because when the perfect arrives there is no longer a need for those things.

They are only to teach you by the Spirit., how to walk in the spirit of love.

 

I am the exact  perfect expression of love, when you KNOW Me you will know love, and can then give it to others, in  goodness, kindness, love, mercy, peace and long suffering.

 

Love is all goodness, all righteousness, so everything you are learning to do here  by the Spirit you are ultimately learning to love.

 

This is the utter greatness and reality of  life, it is limitless, it is vast, beyond what you can comprehend.

 

You have yet to open fully to my love, due to scars and woundedness, you are still not dead to all that is of the self. when you can step aside and let Me hve the reigns of your life, I can then pour all my love into you, and give you my all my fullness, so that you can be a perfect man.

 

So many are caught up with the cares of this life, concerned about what I am bringing to the earth, yet my promises never fail,  it seems you care more about this life then the next one that you will be in with Me in your spiritual body.  the one you are in presently will perish, it will be left behind.

 

Your body came from the earth and will return to the earth, so you must value eternal things.

You have a temporary body given you to carry out My will not your own.

 

You are often like little lambs looking for better pasture, until I have to fetch you and bring you back, so as little children often do..

I have given you all you will need to accomplish what I have given you, and you are look toheavenly things, and to look for My appearing in my Spiritual body that sits at the right hand of the Father, yet I live in You by My Spirit, and as you walk in me, I will lead your every step.

 

Tune your ears to My voice, leave the distraction of others voices.  Don't Depend on My vessels I speak through, listen for yourselves, make it a practice, YOU MUST HEAR MY VOICE.

As I said in the last days there will be many sent to deceive, it is going to get almost impossible to know the truth unless you study for yourselves to be approved a workman not needing to be ashamed.

 

Bathe in My love, I will bring much light to your lamps and you will shine when the world is in darkness.  Rise and shine for your LIGHT HAS COME.

Don't look at circumstances thinking, "What shall I do?", run to the rock that is higher then I, run to Me, the darkness is passing away but I am holding you in the palm of MY hands.

 

That is My unfailing love.

  • I WILL PASS OVER

    Beloved,

    I do not come to you in the first person through this vessel often, but I do so today because I want to speak to your heart, and to know I am Present with you..

    The hour is late beloved, you can see the evidence all around you, you can hear the rattle and shake going on in your world, do not fear for You are mine. I love you and I have separated you from the world to become like Me, in My very image.  It does not come without sacrifice and suffering as those of you who have been going through times of fire to prepare you for the days ahead and to purify you, and to remove the impurities so that you shall truly come out as pure gold..

    You are coming to the time of what is called Passover. Do you remember why it was called Passover? It was a time when I heard the cry of my people who were under oppression  in Egypt, I heard their cry under the heavy yoke of burdens they had to bear. 

    .Before I led My chosen ones out of Egypt I told my people to sacrifice a lamb and put the blood of the animal upon the door post and when  the the angel of death came to strike the Egyptians, the angel of death passed over every door with blood on the doorpost,  they and their children were spared. Just as you too are covered by My blood I shed for you at Calvary.

      I  then led them out  into the wilderness to bring them to a "death to self:"and a test of their faith in Me. I will lead out all of you to safety and to higher ground,  those who have laid down their life for Me. Your are My called and chosen. You are my special treasure, you desire Me above all the treasures and possessions of the world, so you are My cherished ones.

     Your cries and prayers have not gone unheard, I count every tear you have shed and put them in a bottle and your prayers come up to My nostrils like incense. I know what you suffer beloved for it is yet a little while and you shall rejoice over your victory for you will  stand with Me on my thone before all the suffering saints from every generation, a great multitude which no man can count, of all nations kindreds people and tongues.

    Those who have died with Me, and  have suffered in the flesh,  will I keep in the hour of temptation that is coming upon the whole world. If you judge yourself now you will not be judged as I bring judgments to the world through many tribulations such as the world has never seen.

    Those that call themselves the church shall soon find that the enemy has entered into their camp and brought many diverse kinds of spirits with them to tempt their flesh. but I shall shake all that is man made and exalted above Me. I will shake all that can be shaken and those who have clung to their leaders and exalted them will find they have nothing to cling to, except they turn and repent and return to me THE only  One true God.

    Mar 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul?

    The message below was given March 22,2005

    I WILL PASSOVER

    Belovedshoshanna

    March 22,2005

    I have called you for this hour before the foundation of the world. 

    Isaiah 26:20-21
    Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. [21] For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.


    My child, my judgments are upon the earth. I will be looking for the blood that has been applied to your life. And your life will be revealed through the light that emanates through a lamp that is full. For it shall radiate for all to see, a light set upon a hill.

    Yes, beloved I will passover, those who have paid the price of a sacrificed life, those who have been tested in the fires of affliction in the wilderness. Those who have prepared themselves in their secret chambers, who have shut the door to the world and have sought me early, drawing oil into their vessels.

    Fear not beloved, no weapon formed against you shall prosper, every voice that has raised up against you in judgement shall be silenced, for the mountains shall depart and the hills be removed, but My kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall My covenant of My peace be removed says the Lord who has mercy upon you.

    Beloved come now to the end of yourself, let not the arm of flesh rule you. Know that the life does not come from you but from Me, the Fountain of Living Waters. You must come to realize that nothing can come of self effort, realize that unless you are trusting completely in Me you cannot stand against the enemies plans to destroy you. Not by might, not by power but by My Spirit says the Lord.

    For I have established you in righteousness and there is no need to fear the terror, for it shall not come near your house. For as you have been established in righteousness, so the blood has been applied, and your lamp a burning fire.

    I have established you to do greater things than I have done in the earth, you are my hands, my feet, my mouth and so you shall speak My word to the lost, the sick, the dying and those in bondage, so you shall set the captive free, You shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover, you shall speak words of healing that they may be made whole as they give Me glory.

    For you are of My remnant, it shall be well with you, for I will cause the enemy to entreat you well in the time of evil and affliction.

    Open your heart to Me that I may plant good thing from my treasuries. For you have chosen Me over the world and the things of this life, you have not forsaken Me, and obey My voice when I speak so you shall ride upon the high hills.

    Listen closely to Me, I am about to bring judgments into the earth, and I have much for you to do. Because you fear Me, beloved no fear shall come upon you, you shall have peace in the midst of the storm.

    I am coming to do a new thing in the earth, every mouth shall proclaim My name, every mouth shall call upon Me, the God of Israel, Jehoveh Shalom.

    Because you have paid the price you shall carry My word unto the uttermost parts of the earth. You shall be My vessel of honor and many shall come into the kingdom through you.

    Behold as the fires of judgement go through the earth, you shall be my torch bearer, setting on fire those who cry unto Me for righteousness.

    You shall not be afraid nor fear man, for what can they do to you, for you shall be as coals of fire in My hand as in the hand of the smith, so you shall ignite My instruments, that I have set apart for My use. Like a fire brand turning the embers so shall you be to Me. You have not known these things because you have not asked. You receive not because you ask not. I shall hold nothing back from you, ask Me and see.

    Come and see, I shall restore the ancient ruins, I shall restore all that the evil one has stolen, I shall restore all things.

    You shall know, for this have you been called, for such a time as this, for I shall hold back nothing from My beloved.

Beloved Shoshanna

Son 5:1  I am come into my garden, my sister, my spouse: I have gathered my myrrh with my spice; I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk: eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved.




Surrendered Life

Your sister in Christ

10/05/2009

Beloved, you are struggling with your current trials and afflictions I have sent to  purify you as gold tried in the fire.  If you cannot endure these afflcitions how will you endure what is coming upon the earth as the days draw near to my coming.

I have allowed these things to perfect you as sons and daughters.  There is much work to be done, and if you do not totally surrender to my work in you, you will remain a child not fit for the work I have for you to do.

I see what faith you have and it is pleasing to Me, but you do not have the faith of Daniel who was thrown into the lions den, nor the faith of Meschach, Shadrach and Abendego, who were thrown into the fire, they trusted me, and there was not a hair on their head burned, and there I was walking among them.

To walk through the fires of affliction and not be  burned requires a great faith, so trust me as you go through trials, they are not meant to hurt you, but to prepare you to overcome whatever comes.

The trial of your faith, is like climbing up a huge mountain, you don't have the strength to keep going, you don't have any idea of what you are yet to face but you know there are many unknowns ahead, dangers you have never faced. But as you take my hand I will lead you, as you grow weary I am there to carry you. 

Keep climbing, don't look back but climb higher and  higher, with courage to face what ever trial I allow in your life, just press on with confidence that my promises are all true. When you become weary, stop what you are doing and rest in Me, quiet yourself and seek Me, meditate on my promises. 

Know you must surrender everything into My hands, you cannot change a hair on your head by worry or thinking with you own thoughts, cast your burdens on Me, I am the burden bearer.

Those weights on your feet, the burdens on your heart, give them to me, they are woven into your life so you will finally come to know that I have designed them so that you learn how to trust me completely, utterly. 

Don't trust in your own abilites, or the ways and wisdom of the world, but only  upon Me, your life may depend on it. Seek me and My ways, seek My will, and My leading.

I will take you to heights you canot even comprehend in your mind, if you will go deeper in Me, draw closer to Me, surrender completely to me, as putty in My hand, so that I can mold You into My beautiful jewel, My special treasure I had ordained before the world was formed.  

Just surrender your whole life, weaknesses and all, that I may rise in power through you, that you will be able to overcome all adversity that comes you way. My strength is made perfect in weakness.

Try it beloved, do not fear, I am with you always, and you shall see how easy things become when all your burdens and cares are on me, you will have to do nothing but abide in me and trust me for everything in your life.

Surrender your life to me, as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto Me.

Through your sufferings, I am perfecting, strengthening, and establishing you.

Do not despise the chastenings of the Lord, you are not alone in your trials, I must bring affliction and trials into your life to bring about fruit, that will endure, though you are producing much fruit, you must be continually be pruned to produce lasting fruit. Fruit that can endure whatever comes. I am producing My life in You, a life that will astonish all and will bring healing to everything it touches.

I know there are times when you cry out to Me, Lord please help me, please take away my pain, my difficulties, "let this cup pass from me" just as I cried in the garden, I knew that I must relinquish My will for the Fathers's, and so I said,"Not MY Will but yours Lord", enduring the cross and despising the shame, so beloved must you. Relenquish all your will, thoughts emotions and your whole life to me.

For your light affliction is but for a moment, and is working a far more exceeding glory. While we look not at things we can see, but the things we cannot see, for the things which are seen are temporary, but the things not seen are eternal.

Beloved, let go of all things but but being in Me, seeking me, choosing that "One Thing" the good part. You shall see that it all does not matter, but what really matters is being one with Me.

As you seek first the kingdom, and My righteousness all things shall be added, including every need.

Busi-ness does not lead to godliness, or knowing me. So quiet yourself, allow Me to be Your All and All.

You must train yourself in the stillness to hear and OBEY My voice, I will teach you My ways, and what lies ahead in the night seasons.

 You must surender your time to Me, for it belongs to Me, as  you belong to Me. Surrender everything beloved so I can complete the work I have for you, I will teach you those things that will take you deeper and higher in me, but I must freely have all your time, all your heart.

Lay it all down, and live a surrendered life.

  • TO BE COUNTED WORTHY

    I have not written or received much recently because I had gone through major surgery, and have been recovering these past few months. My right hand and arm is still numb and typing is difficult, so the Lord has had me just at His feet, and not sharing.

    For those who are new to these writings, I began to get words in 2004. They can be found at InJesus: Manna For the Journey and then go to the end  to page 59 and then forward you will find that these words were not only for your exhortation but were truly prophetic for the time we are living in now in year 2009

    The warnings were there, the exhortations and encouragement, and their is little that he could given that has not already been said, His truth is past present and future.

    In saying this, I have been getting great burdens about the body of Christ being deceived with false teachings for some time as well as deceiving spirits. These words have been given out since 2004, with few taking notice, almost shutting their ears, because they want to hear that which tickles the ears.

    Actually the Holy Spirit will teach us,  John 16:13, 1John 2:20.27. John 10:4-5. It is true but we must also test the spirit. So we must be careful that what we are being taught from the pulpit, that it lines up completely with what the Lord is teaching us through the word and the Holy Spirit.

    There are tempting demonic spirits, their are angels of light, that will come to you and you will think it is Christ, they will not come as satan with a pitchfork and horns, but will come as a beautiful angel or in disguise of  Christ, there are many spirits and they have come to turn Christians into another direction because we are in the last days, some toward new age, or one world governemnt.  this is where we are called to be overcomers. The main thing is we must humble ourselves and seek Christ to keep us in His truth.

    Now for the message.

          To Be Counted Worthy

    2Th 1:4 So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure:

    2Th 1:5 Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer:

    The Lord has promised us that if we shall become Overcomers, He will keep us from the trial that shall come upon the whole world, to try them that dwell on the earth. Rev. 3:10

    It is not to say we shall be kept from suffering of persecutions, tribulations, and afflictions. The Lord has said it is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that we may be counted worthy of the Kingdom of God for which we suffer.

     1Pe 4:14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

    Even Moses chose to suffer with the people of God, and all the heroes of the faith, including apostles and prophets, all the early church, as well as those saints in 3rd world countries who have suffered for their faith.

    We are loved no more or less then they are and were. They too drew close to the Lord, He is our refuge, they Had His Presence with them, yet they suffered. Look at Stephen in Acts 7, a powerful testimony of faith.     

    Act 7:54 When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.

    Act 7:55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,

    Act 7:56 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.

    Act 7:57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord,

    Act 7:58 And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul.

    Act 7:59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.

           Act 7:60 And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

     There is no shortcut to receive the glory of God If we suffer with Christ we shall reign with Christ.

    These heroes of the faith were not suffering because they did not know Christ, they knew Christ they were abiding, they could not have remained steadfast without that closeness with Christ.

     Beloved, know the truth of the word of God. It will sustain you during these trials, memorize scripture now. Study the whole counself of the Word, do not take it out of context. Do not despise prophesying. the Lord has been warning for a long time, His word comes directly from His written word, it will line up, line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little there a little. 

    The Holy Spirit gives us more wisdom and revelation into what He is saying in the word of God, he that has an ear let him hear, but it will line up. John 10:3-4

      Much of the body of Christ has been getting mixture, the devil is very tricky, he will mix truth with error and because we all want to hear encouraging words, satan will use that to tickle your ears. He does not contradict Himself or what He has expressed in the word of God.  If you do not read, study, and meditate on the word, you will not know when you are receiving a mixture.

    It is safer to learn from the word and the Holy Spirit and everything that is taught, you go to the word and make sure it lines up.

    This will be very important in the coming days, that you are directed  by the Holy Spirit, again test the spirits.

    You may not know who you can trust in the coming days, the word says that a mans foes shall be they of his own household, your trust should be in Yeshua Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit alone.

    So you must be wise as serpants and harmess as doves, you can always trust the Holy spirit to lead you in the way you should go.

    Isa 30:21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

    We have been seeing many ministers and ministries fall in recent years, I say this with sadness as well as with expectation for the hour we are in these last days, as

    Judgment begins at the household of God 1Peter 4:17-18.  If there is sin in the house those in sin will be judged, whether it be of the flesh or lack of love. Leaders will also be held accountable for what they have been teaching and for covetousness in their hearts. 

    Gal 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

    Gal 6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

    If we build our house on shifting sand instead of the rock, Jesus Christ, the word of God we shall not stand when the storm comes.

    There are many seducing spirits that have entered the world we see this with all the violence and perversion in the world, but many deceiving spirits have entered the church, to deny that you too could be deceived, you do so at your own peril. We must really pray for discernment in this hour.

    There are angels of light, demonic spirits sent to deceive. There are some who are being drawn into new age, not even aware it is happening, some even come as Christ Himself, but because of the lack of discernment and for seeking after manifestations and glory, they are deceived into believing, what they see and hear is true.

    It is almost in some cases hypnosis, the word came to me, mezmorized. this is what we saw in the past election. It is a form of witchcraft and mind control. Don't be deceived this comes straight from the manipulations of the occult. It is also in the church, whether you believe that or not, those with their head in the sand will not be able to stand.

    We need to be alert, and aware of everything around us and coming to us  because there are enemies from without and from those within the church these are tares, goats.

     Satanic witchcraft has entered the church, we cannot deny and look away, we must be alert, and seek God at all times, don't beleive everything you see or hear. Some of these spirits can and will manifest illusions.

    The word says to watch and pray, do not be like the disciples when told to watch were found sleeping.

    Pray without ceasing for the days are evil.

    1Pe 4:7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

    Let us humble ourselves in the sight of God and toward one another, this is first and foremost the most important thing to do, pride is an open door to deception, then pray for one another and the whole body of Christ, that our eyes will be opened to the truth at all times.

 

 

Healing In His Wings

Belovedshoshanna

July 17,2009


Mal 4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

Beloved, My child of whom I am well pleased, fret not because of the trials that have come upon you. this is yet for a little while, and then I will come with healing of all that you suffer in the flesh.

Many of you are so distraught because of all the trials you are facing, painful trials, loss of loved ones, financial trials, many do not know when their next meal shall come, where they shall rest, and when healing for their bodies shall come.

They cry out Abba, Abba, where are you when I cry, why have you forsaken me?

Child I am here, I have not left your side. This is a season in the wilderness, to prove your love for Me and above all for others, a time of testing just as My children of Israel were tested, yet I provided. Their shoes never wore out even though they walked 40 years through the wilderness.

Your Father and Mother may forget you but I shall never forget you, You are my chosen, hid as it were for a little while.

You are tested by refining fire, do you recall when Meschach, Shadrach and Abendego were thrown into the fire, there was I, walking in the midst, and they came out of the fire without a hair on their head singed.

I know what you are going through is not easy, but rest in My love for you and know it's depths, this is what I desire of You in this hour.

This is only a trial beloved, lift up your head and see My glory, high and lifted up. Take your eyes off the pain, and look deep into My eyes and you will see My great love for you

Get deeper into me, and You will know peace, We shall be One. In Me is fullness of joy, yet in those moments you shall forget, you will forget all else but Me, as You bask In My love.

I will restore health unto you, I will heal your wounds, though you live as an outcast hid away in Me, separate from the world and thoes which calls themselves My church but is not My church, but have been following after the words of hirelings rather then Me. Pray for their eyes to be healed, and their ears to hear truth.

I have called you to Myself, to be a people who endures to the end, that will not deny My name, and live by My word in love. Love for one another and love for the hurting and lost. Love is the key, love is the key.

A holy humble people, precious in My sight, that does not follow every wind of doctrine, but allows Me to teach you, so that you shall know the truth and that truth shall set you free.

Be comforted My child to know that your cries are heard. Even My Son had to go through tests of obedience. He spoke the word to every trial, and before that trial was done, He was presented another one. He spoke the word again and again, for man does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. I would have you to speak to the mountain before you, and see it obey.

Even the cross became a test of obedience, but My Son humbled Himself and became obedient unto death.

Can you not see, I have put a cross before you, and you must pick it up and follow Me, every cross brings death, the death of ones own self.

I will be with you every step of the way, no weapons formed against you shall prosper, and no tongue can rise up in judgement against you, this thing too shall pass.

For I have not abandoned you, You are never forsaken, I shall never leave you.

To do greater things, you must be honed. Don't believe any of the devils lies, he never ceases to try to bring one of My own down.

Look to Jesus, cry out to Jesus, he knows every thought, he knows every tear, He knows your suffering.

Though he was a Son, He learned obedience by the things which He suffered, so it is with you.

You have a high calling, a heavenly calling. 1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.

Trust me though the world system falls, trust Me though you see the mountains crumble, trust Me, though nothing makes sense trust Me, though your body and mind is racked with pain, trust Me when you do not know when your next meal will come, trust Me when your heart is breaking, trust Me.

I know there are times when you feel like giving up, and when you get so down hearted you don't want to raise your head, but look up for your redemption draweth nigh.

The suffering is only for a moment in time when you consider the eternal rewards the suffering produces, you will praise Me.

I am the God that heals you, I am your great reward.

Do not get caught up into the worlds events, or activities it will take you out of the Spirit and you will find yourself inthe flesh, aware of the flesh, and all your circumstances, and all your trials and circumstances will be magnified, bringing fear.

There is nothing going on in world events that I do not have a hand in, and all events will turn at my bidding.

Look to Me. Have I not through the prophets prophesied of all these events?

It is the unbeliever that I want to "SEE" what I am doing so they will turn and repent of their unbelief, their worship of other gods, and their dependance on self and man.

Keep your focus completely on Me, and I will fill you with My light and love as you go deeper into My Presence, and as you meditate on MY word. All else is as shifting sands, it will all fall.

You are to be a light upon a hill, a beacon, a light house so those who see the light from afar will be drawn to it, and there by come to Me.

I am coming for My bride without spot or wrinkle, garments white and bright, and I will see My own by their lamps being full, and radiating light, which only comes from being in My Presence, and in My glory. You will shine as the sun, and I will see the darkness all around I shall come and shut the door, and You will be with Me forever.

No more pain or weeping, no more suffering, sickness or death, but you shall be as I AM.

Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away





The Prophetic


Just A Few Words On Prophetic Ministries.

Beloved Shoshanna-sis shanna
 
Many of you may have heard me say that I do not claim to be a prophet, nor have I aspired to be one.  But I often receive words that are inspired of God, and most of the time He speaks right through me.  I write I do not think about what I am writing, the scriptures come as I write.
Often as in my case it is undeveloped, and most prophetic gifts are spiritually developed at the feet of Christ over time.  So sometimes you may not be reading a false prophet but one that is still developing or yet immature.  It is really developing the hearing ear.
 
I believe it is the Spirit that gives life, the flesh profiteth nothing John 6:63 and determines if the writer or speaker is a true prophet or prophetess of God, it is in how much the word impacts the life of the hearer or in this case the reader.
 I personally believe anyone can call themselves a prophet, because they want to be recognized, or they are trying to draw a following.
 
  There are many words out there, but how much has that messenger impacted your life, or given you something to think about that you were not seeing before in yourself, that caused you to want to live a more consecrated life, or spoke into an area or circumstance in your life.  That is a mark of a true prophet.
 
 So many prophets today are saying things that seem very deep, and seem very way out there but if they do not affect your life at some level, are of no avail.  I enjoy reading about visitations, and dreams, but if they do nothing to cause me to change they only make for good reading.
A Prophet or Prophetess should bring about some change, or recognition of sin or at least bring you to the feet of Jesus.
 
I find, what I get from Jesus Christ Himself in my quiet time or a word He gives me, goes in much deeper than if I hear it from someone else, and if a prophetic word is not spiritually inspired or if it is from the head rather than the heart it does nothing, it goes no where, but a word from the spirit penetrates, separates soul and spirit, and makes an impact.  I believe that we are reading too many prophecies and not enough of hearing from the Lord Himself.
 
If someone is just promoting their own agenda, or ministry to get a following, I would be suspect of that speaker, or if the messenger draws attention to himself or herself, or to even signs rather than Jesus Christ.
Ministry is to touch and bring about changed lives, not promote self or use a gift to elevate oneself to a higher position or status in the eyes of men.
 
The Apostles and Prophet were given by Christ as ministry gifts for leadership, it is not an office but a function in the body of Christ for the building up of the church.  It was the Apostles and Prophets that brought not only encouragement and edification but correction in the church.
The Pastors were overseers in the early church, they were shepherds that watched over the flock, and the word Pastor is mentioned once in the new testament.
 It was the Apostles and Prophets that were speakers in the church, as well as others.  This was changed when the Catholic Church took over the church. The Apostles and Prophets gave the inspired word of God, not to be confused with the early  Apostles that wrote the scriptures by inspiration of God, todays Apostles are more apostolic leaders rather than commissioned as the early Apostles were. 
Jesus Christ gave the leaders in the church for the perfecting of the Saints and building up of the body of Christ.  He gave evangelist who were also preachers of the word of God, Pastors and teachers.
 
Eph 4:11  And he gave some to be apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 
Eph 4:12  for the perfecting of the saints, unto the work of ministering, unto the building up of the body of Christ: 
Eph 4:13  till we all attain unto the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a full grown man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: 
Eph 4:14  that we may be no longer children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, in craftiness, after the wiles of error; 
Eph 4:15  but speaking truth in love, we may grow up in all things into him, who is the head, even Christ; 
Eph 4:16  from whom all the body fitly framed and knit together through that which every joint supplieth, according to the working in due measure of each several part, maketh the increase of the body unto the building up of itself in love.
 
What we see today is a lukewarm church, a church in apostasy, and for the prophets to just continually speak smooth words to the church and tell them everything is ok, is feeding into the church more lukewarmness rather than building it up.  You can't build on a sick church, repentance and healing must first take place and in general it is sick, there are some wonderful saints around the world who have died to self, and have picked up their cross and follow Jesus Christ, their life IS in bringing others to Christ, but that as a whole is not so in America.
 
Prophets are also called to expose sin, proclaim righteousness and warn of judgments to come, along with warning the people about worldliness and lukewarmness.
Their message today is rejected because leadership does not want to rock the boat,and so the lukewarmness and the Laodician church is rampant.
 
Though there is a trend today in some churches that are bringing the people to the feet of Jesus, to seek and to worship Him, and abide continually in His Presence, which shall surely turn lives around.
 

The early church was needing encouragement, just as the church needs today but they also needed sharp words at times, just as Paul sometimes gave.  Jesus Christ gave very strong warnings to the church in the book of revelations, they are the same words He is speaking to the church today, the same problems exist today as  in that time.
 
A Prophet is a foreteller as well, a seer, so often he will see what is coming ahead of time and warn the people, but often it goes on deaf ears, or the people put their hands over their ears because they do not want to hear the message, and now can just delete it.
 
 There cannot be revival without repentance, and a turning from the world back to God,  people have to see their sin and hate it, and God continually points out sin, He pin points it, if we will open our spiritual eyes and ears.
 
If your children continually misbehave, you are going to bring the rod of correction, if necessary on the seat of their pants, you are not going to just warn and warn and warn, because they will go right on doing what you have told them not to do.  And most children if their parents do not follow up on their threats will take advantage of the situation, for as long as they can, until they get completely out of control but God is very faithful to His word, and if He warns you can be sure He will follow through.  Because He is merciful, there may be delays because he wants us to repent, but ultimately judgment will come and it will come when we least expect it. If we  Judge ourself and we will not be judged.
 
Yes we have an enemy, and he is constantly tempting us, but that is not an excuse for sin, as the word says submit to God and the devil will flee.
 
The Lord uses these tests to test where we are in Him, and if we do not overcome, we will experience much suffering until we do.
 
He will woo us with Love, but just as the children of Israel spurned His love for their idols so has the church.
 
A Prophet's character must line up with his or her message, and often as is the case with most true Prophets,  must go through a wilderness experience.
 
There is an accountability in speaking for Christ, one cannot give a pure word in an unclean vessel, and the Lord wants us to be consecrated to him.  He will cause us to see the wretchedness of sin in others as well as in our own lives, it is painful to see and brings us much grief, so we go through the cleansing fire until we are pure gold.
 
We will see repeated tests, until we are able to get the victory in our life.
 
Some of you have been in the wilderness for a long time, and wonder when you will finally reach the promise land, you have gone through so much hurt at the hands of other Christians, and church leaders, but the Lord wants to heal those hurts.
 Some of us are very sensitive, and this is a quality that is good for the prophetic, but certainly must be channeled into the right direction.  We can nurse our wounds for a long period of time and never get to where the Lord wants us, what he wants is for us to let Him deal with them within ourself, old wounds that were caused by unresolved issues of abuse or offense that caused unforgiveness and He wants to heal those wounds that may go back many years.
 
Some of you have had your faith tested to the limit, and you are not sure you can go on anymore, but God is not finished with you, and He will come through for you just when you want to throw in the towel, He is never to late, He is always right on time.
 
So few remember that God is not a respecter of persons, and just as the Israelites went through great testing so will you.  So much of the church is teaching prosperity and are taught that the Lord does not want us to suffer, but that is so against anything in the word of God.  For those who suffer with Christ shall reign with Christ.
 
We are going to go through great trials and suffering, to become the pure bride, and it is going to take many in the body of Christ to help us get there, to help us to see where we are lacking, but Jesus Christ alone can reveal everything in a short time.
If the church would seek the Lord with all our heart we will truly find Him, and He will draw us into that secret place of his Presence, and there we will know Him, for He is the word of God.  And He will reveal all we will need to know about what is in our hearts. And to know the depth of His love for us.
 It bring us to our knees. 
 
Eph 3:17  that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 
Eph 3:18  may be strong to apprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 
Eph 3:19  and to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge, that ye may be filled unto all the fullness of God.

"LISTEN"
Beloved Shoshanna
Jun 14, 2009

 The world cannot hear the sound of the hoof beats as they are coming  onto the horizon. Only my own who have trained their senses to discern good and evil,  and trained to hear my voice alone,   are able to see with spiritual eyes the days coming upon them.

Sometimes you may only see partial pieces that fit into the final picture as in a puzzle, some see the whole picture of what I am doing as  it passes before their  eyes.  I will reveal to My servants if they have eyes to see and ears to hear.
But do not look at what is going on around you, nor listen to what the world is saying.
You must not be caught up with world events, as it will distort what I am showing you, listen to only My voice  and give your life wholly to me.
There are so many voices in the world, and they will impair your ability to hear clearly from Me if you listen to them . Keep your eyes on Me alone so you can  see what I am doing in your midst.
This is a time of great deception in the world,  and many are falling to deception even among those who call themselves” My church”.  There are many false spirits that have entred into the world, disguising themselves as angels of light, these spirits have one agenda and that is to deceive the body of  Christ and the world, but true disciples of mine shall not not receive these deceiving spirits.
If you are looking at and hearing the world you shall be divided, and know not that which is truth,  not discerning the times seasons and  spirits, you shall be caught unawares even as you sleep.
There are those that are used by the enemy to pull many away from me in this hour  with their false teachings that come not from my Spirit.
These same ones shall not be prepared and are even now being drawn away by false spirits, their minds and hearts being corrupted by deception.  They shall not endure sound doctrine to the saving of their souls.  They shall be drawn into the events that shall soon transpire, unaware because they are deceived.
There is a major shift taking place that is aimed at the heart and consciousness of man, it comes by deception, the plans and devises are from the evil one.
It will bring a great divide between the world and My own, My chosen, you must remain steadfast in this hour, I will empower you, keeping your eyes and ears on Me alone.  Watch and pray.
There will be a great pulling of the undiscerning into a whirlpool of the enemies web of lies and deception.
He who endures to the end shall be saved, as there are many called but few chosen.
Many are called to the marriage supper of the lamb, but by their refusal to let go of the things of the world, many will find they are unable to endure and will not be able to enter in.
Remember the rich man who went away sad as it was required of him to give away all that he had.
My own know Me, and My voice and follow me alone.  They love not the world nor the things of the world.
As a world leader arises on the scene, he will control every aspect of life, he will deceive many as He deceives the world with his flattery and deceptive words.
Once he has gained complete control, everyone must worship him and his image and shall not buy or sell with out his mark, which is a mark of allegiance to him and his system.
All governments and religion shall be under his control. A religion of many gods, no longer shall anyone be allowed to worship the one true God and Lord Jesus Christ.
There shall be complete mind control, every aspect of life shall be controlled by this man and his system of government, anyone not accepting the mark or his system shall be eliminated through death..
I have given you a way of escape, and it is only in me, as you remain in Me and My word, and follow me alone.
Choose you this day who you shall serve.  Today is the day of salvation. repent and return unto me, all who have strayed from My voice, remain in Me and I will remain in you.
Listen, and watch this is the hour that has been spoken of.








Vessels Of Living water
Sis, Beloved Servant

Jer 2:13 For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water. 

The Kingdom of God cannot move forward with just human effort, it must be the out flow of the Holy Spirit
who is the fountain of living waters.
If we have received the Holy Spirit into our vessel then it is not to be kept for ourselves just to enjoy but it is to flow outward to a lost and dying world, that is how the kingdom is advanced.

Many of us have begun to dry up and need that new filling,we have been keeping that spirit for ourselves, we bathe in it we run here and run there to get more of it. But it isn't flowing out toward the lost, it is being kept for ones own enjoyment.

In some cases all the teachings the dry fellowships, the seminaries and the head knowledge are giving out dry crusty bread instead of the living water. Jesus is the word, He is the LIFE and His word is living water.

We should seek the Lord for more of this living water, and then let it flow out to heal and deliver the world that is overcome with evil.

Joh 4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God
, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

We only need to ask him to give us that living water, he wants His kingdom advanced more then anything we can do. we don't need more teachings, and more conferences we need to obey the Lord and begin to reach out to others beyond our camp. 

This living water is available just for the asking. We just need to come to the Lord and drink richly of this water of life.

Isa 55:1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 

Simon the Soccerer, was getting a name for himself with his false power, and then he saw Phillip leading souls to Christ, and he too accepted Christ, and then he saw the Apostles lay hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit, Simon offered them money that they might lay hands on him to receive the Holy Spirit.
He saw the living water being received and he was willing to buy it so he could himself use it.

Act 8:18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost
 was given, he offered them money, 
Act 8:19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. 

Act 8:20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. 

This is what is needed. We may have the Holy Spirit but to get the power of God that will change nations we must lay down our lives, even unto death.

Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb
, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 

The reason that other countries have mass salvations, and souls being saved everywhere every day is because these countries are under heavy persecution, they are being stripped of their rights to worship God
.
They are imprisoned, beaten and killed for the kingdom of God's sake.

It may be that here in America very shortly we shall see Christians persecuted for just being a Christian. Much hate for us is being generated and all we stand for and believe, is heavily mocked as well as being stripped away in our nation.
Could God allow this because of the condition of the church in America?

Maybe we need to take a second look at what we are doing, all the teachings on prosperity and self serving only tend to make the church more comfortable. We were noit meant to be comfortable. 
The book of acts would not have been written if the church was comfortable, but God allowed for it to go through much persecution so that it would become alive to see the kingdom of God advanced.

I believe praying for personal revival is a good thing, praying for more living water, but when you are visited by the power of God, don't just go home and bask in it, but let that living water flow
 out of you daily into lives that are so thirsty.

Just like Jesus, Yeshua met the woman at the well, she was thirsty, she married five husbands looking for love in all the wrong places, and Jesus was offering her living water.

Joh 4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. 
Joh 4:13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 
Joh 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. 

If we drink of this living water we shall never thirst, we must continually drink of it, so that we do not become dry.

It is when we become dry we have nothing to give to others of His life.
We are God's vessels of life, we are to pour out this living waters everywhere we go so that thirsty people will partake of this water of life.

There is no greater time then now, when so many are without jobs, they have no one to turn to, and we have within us that which they need. 
Let us begin to take our communities for Christ, and not stop there but go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, teaching them to observe all that the Lord has commanded us



Is The American Christian Deceived

Since I have been home recovering from major surgery on my spine and neck, I have had much more time to read books, and the word then usual, and I have been taking a look at how here in America the lost are basically forgotten. Not only here in America but the world.

I get so sick and disgusted at the evils that are increasing in the world as demonic spirits are ravaging peoples lives, little children daily raped and murdered in heinous crimes.

How our nation is now telling God that they do not want Him in our nation.

I ask myself, do I not care about the lost? Have I become so comfortable in my life that they do not matter, that I have no burden to see them repent and come to Christ?

I have been more concerned with what is going on then doing something about it, as we are commanded. 

But this is what has happened to the church here in America, and I am guilty as well because at one time it was of great importance to me. Now my concern is for only those in Africa, and our own country is on its way to hell in a handbasket. 

Yes, Jesus cast out the demons, He delivered the people from demonic oppression, and the body of Christ's whole focus was to preach the gospel to the lost and then make dsciples of them, to cast out demons, heal the sick and raise the dead.

So what are we doing? Are we sitting there totally sickened by the demonic infiltration in greater numbers, taking lives and terroizing our children? Getting wrapped up into our own comfort, our own lives of gaining treasures.

We pray for revival, thinking God is somehow going to zap us into being so on fire for the gospel that we shall witness to everyone we meet. Keep Praying! but it will not happen that way.

My friends it starts with us, we must be sold out to the gospel and Jesus Christ ourselves, loving Christ with all of our hearts. the lost see us as little difference from them. Not living for Christ why should they.

What happened to the Great Commission?

Mar 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.Mar 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Mar 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 

It was a command, just like Jonah was commanded to go to Nineveh to warn them of impending judgment. and he refused to go because he thought that they might repent and God would change His mind about bringing judgment on those evil people.

Is this what we want, to see judgment come down on the evil in America? Rather then go to the highways and byways and compell them to come in, as we have been commanded to do.


What is the purpose of spending millions on mega churches, and huge conferences that run into millions to pay for facilities, speakers and yet nothing is spent to see the lost won.

There might be a few supporting ministries like ours in other countries, that are reaching the lost and making disciples disciple and feeding them spiritually and physically. My guess is few Christians are supporting any ministry to the lost and few are even going.

I know so few are preaching the gospel here in America, there are a few street preachers out there, like Larry Rosenbaum, Dennis McNally, Paul and Noreen Cocca and others that preach here in America and overseas, but so few out of all the Christians preach the gospel here in America.

One of the books I have been reading that has opened my eyes is a book by Brother Yun, "Living Water"who also wrote the book, "Heavenly Man" Powerful books, highly recommended.

Brother Yun, is so shocked at Americans, he said that in China every Christian preaches every day to the lost, and some will not even sleep until they have led a soul to Christ.

"He says the believers in America are deceived, they believe that being saved means they can sit back enjoy the Lord and do nothing else while they wait for the Lord to return again" He finds that astonishing, for every Christian in China is an evangelist, they are busy every day preaching to those nearby and faraway.

2Co 5:14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 

2Co 5:15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 


I want to add as well that the church in China preaches the truth of the gospel to lay down our life, that you no longer live for yourselves but for Christ who died for you and rose again, not the self serving gospel that is preached today, the watered down version.

Mat 16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 

We shall all come before the judge one day and be judged for what we did in the body rather good or bad.

What will He see in our life, what have we done to see the kingdom come, how many people have we loved with the love of Christ.

His eyes shall be on and are now on us and we shall not escape, will He see we lived for ourself, or for Him.

Are we so ashamed of the gospel we can't stand to be persecuted? We worry about what people think of us?

Soon it maybe that we shall be persecuted just because we are Christians, will you then stand for Jesus and for the truth of the gospel.

Jesus asked if he would find faith on the earth when he returns.

I would rather stand for truth, and for the gospel then care what people think of me whetherit be other Christians or the world.

Of course we all have jobs, and that in itself is is very time consuming, and then church has all the nights of the week full, so when does one preach the gospel.

We begin with our neighbors and who ever God puts before us. I think we need to take stock of our life and ask ourself if we are fully surrendered to Christ or are we living our own life.

In America people seek signs, miracles and w0nders, but in China they are an every day occurance, because they live laid down lives. they have died to themself.

I think of how one day all of China will be Christian, believing the same teachings of Christ, while America is becoming a godless nation.

There is no real formula other then obeying the great Commission, and getting back to the truth of the gospel not the watered down versions here in America.

If we all work together as Chinese Christians do to encourage one another in fellowship and prayer to continue reaching the lost, sharing testimonies, instead of trying to build the biggest church and have the most money and pssessions.

I agree with Brother Yun, we are most deceived here in America.



Are American christians Deceived Part 2.

Sis, Beloved Servant

Jer 2:13 For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water. 

The Kingdom of God cannot move forward with just human effort, it must be the out flow of the Holy Spirit who is the fountain of living waters.
If we have received the Holy Spirit into our vessel then it is not to be kept for ourselves just to enjoy but it is to flow outward to a lost and dying world, that is how the kingdom is advanced.

Many of us have begun to dry up and need that new filling,we have been keeping that spirit for ourselves, we bathe in it we run here and run there to get more of it. But it isn't flowing out toward the lost, it is being kept for ones own enjoyment.

In some cases all the teachings the dry fellowships, the seminaries and the head knowledge are giving out dry crusty bread instead of the living water. Jesus is the word, He is the LIFE and His word is living water.

We should seek the Lord for more of this living water, and then let it flow out to heal and deliver the world that is overcome with evil.

Joh 4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

We only need to ask him to give us that living water, he wants His kingdom advanced more then anything we can do. we don't need more teachings, and more conferences we need to obey the Lord and begin to reach out to others beyond our camp. 

This living water is available just for the asking. We just need to come to the Lord and drink richly of this water of life.

Isa 55:1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 

Simon the Soccerer, was getting a name for himself with his false power, and then he saw Phillip leading souls to Christ, and he too accepted Christ, and then he saw the Apostles lay hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit, Simon offered them money that they might lay hands on him to receive the Holy Spirit.
He saw the living water being received and he was willing to buy it so he could himself use it.

Act 8:18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, 
Act 8:19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. 

Act 8:20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. 

This is what is needed. We may have the Holy Spirit but to get the power of God that will change nations we must lay down our lives, even unto death.

Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 

The reason that other countries have mass salvations, and souls being saved everywhere every day is because these countries are under heavy persecution, they are being stripped of their rights to worship God.
They are imprisoned, beaten and killed for the kingdom of God's sake.

It may be that here in America very shortly we shall see Christians persecuted for just being a Christian. Much hate for us is being generated and all we stand for and believe, is heavily mocked as well as being stripped away in our nation.
Could God allow this because of the condition of the church in America?

Maybe we need to take a second look at what we are doing, all the teachings on prosperity and self serving only tend to make the church more comfortable. We were noit meant to be comfortable. 
The book of acts would not have been written if the church was comfortable, but God allowed for it to go through much persecution so that it would become alive to see the kingdom of God advanced.

I believe praying for personal revival is a good thing, praying for more living water, but when you are visited by the power of God, don't just go home and bask in it, but let that living water flow out of you daily into lives that are so thirsty.

Just like Jesus, Yeshua met the woman at the well, she was thirsty, she married five husbands looking for love in all the wrong places, and Jesus was offering her living water.

Joh 4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. 
Joh 4:13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 
Joh 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. 

If we drink of this living water we shall never thirst, we must continually drink of it, so that we do not become dry.

It is when we become dry we have nothing to give to others of His life.
We are God's vessels of life, we are to pour out this living waters everywhere we go so that thirsty people will partake of this water of life.

There is no greater time then now, when so many are without jobs, they have no one to turn to, and we have within us that which they need. 
Let us begin to take our communities for Christ, and not stop there but go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, teaching them to observe all that the Lord has commanded us.



Where Eagles Gather
03/25/099
sis shanna



I want to share what the Lord spoke to me this morning about the hour we are in.
This morning the Lord let me see what is ahead of us here in this country and in the world. What I was seeing was chaos all around, yes just as I saw in a dream recently of seeing Chaos everywhere, and we are to cry out to Jesus, we shall see not only great chaos but persecution of Christians that we have not ever seen here in US, though it will be happening all over the world.

It is very possible the Lord is warning that this country may go into anarchy, but he is surely warning of chaos, that is what I saw.

I clearly heard in my Spirit "Cry out to Jesus", the song by Third Day.

And that we are to do just what it says in 
Psalm 91, abide under the shadow of the Almighty, we are to be in Him, not the world, we are to listen to Him, not what the world is saying, not what the prognosticators say on the news.
That is of the flesh, God is spirit and they that worship Him, must worship Him in the spirit a d truth.

Get away from all the talk of schemes and plans of the enemy, diabolical plots and evil in the world, focus only on where the Lord wants you personally, that which is good, leave all those distractions behind, by focusing on them you are not taking the time needed for you to be in that place the Lord wants you in this hour.

Help prepare your brothers and sisters, and above all else tell people about the 
Lord Jesus ChristYeshua
.

This is a clear warning, we need to have our house in order, as He then took me to Matthew 24, and Luke 17:37 and job 39:30.

Mat 24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together

Luk 17:37 And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.

There is little time for unbelievers or backslid, and those deceived, to repent, things will come quite suddenly.
We must have our ear open to the Lord's direction.

We must be in absolute faith for everything at this time, get away from distractions focus only on that which will help you to be where you are to be in the Lord.

Nothing else is of importance but warning people to repent, and to be ready standing in faith and love. Encouraging one another as you see the day approaching.

There is no time now for playing church, but in being the church, no time for looking for prosperity, making money buying and selling but to be about our Father's business of telling people to repent and turn to the Lord. You were brought here for a purpose, you must be ready when the Father calls, when the Lord returns.

Don't be dismayed at what you see going on around you, but keep you focus on the Lord talking to him in prayer and listening for His voice.

You were brought here for such a time as this, you are being prepared for His calling you.

He may have specific directions for each of you, that is why it is absolutely imperative you listen to Him, not the world, shut out all sounds from the world.

I want to show you what He showed me to encourage you in this hour.


Job 39:27 Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?
Job 39:28 She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.
Job 39:29 From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.
Job 39:30 Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.

This is speaking of the rapture of eagles, when he commands the Lord catches us away, He translates us up high with him. Hear Him Call.Listen.

The eagle dwells on and in the Lord, and is built on Him. The eagle saints will come back with the Lord to bring final judgment on the spiritually dead, those who are in league with antichrist, who refuse the Lord and truth, His word.

This is where the eagle gathers, he seeks out the spiritually dead, giving them new life by sucking out the death and giving them the new life by the blood of Christ.

We are the elect if we are in Him, He called the church to be the elect, but because of the 
false prophets
 and teachers that are leading many in the church astray, they are not going to be where the Lord wants them
they will not be prepared, their mind will be on things of this world.
Thee Lord said not to love the world or the things in the world. If you love the world the 
love of the Father
 is not in you.

One of the signs of the soon return of the Lord and the last days is the increase of false teachers and prophets ministers of satan that will perform great 
signs and wonders
. We are told to be alert for these professed Christians prophets, teachers, and preachers who are in reality false yet perform healings, signs and wonders, who appear to be a success in their ministries, but are distorting ad rejecting truth found in God's word. that are doing what seems to be what the bible says, but in fact are deceivers.
Not everything you see and hear is of the Lord, even if it appears to be.

We need to test the spirits, pray for 
discerning of spirits
 it s crucial in this hour.

Draw near continually to the Lord's Presence, do not chase after this event or that conference, but take shelter under His wings.

Come and gather with other eagles, that we may encourage one another, and draw on and bask in His spirit from one another, share and comfort one another with His words, what he shows us. in dreams and visions that he speaks to us.

Focus on him from on high. Fly over your circumstances, let the Holy spirit lift you high above the troubles below. He is with us. He will never leave or forsake us.

We need to be with other eagles, Where Eagles Gather.

Isa 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Come join us on 
Gathering of Eagles.

Trust Me, I Shall Direct Your Steps

Beloved Shoshana 
Jan 19, 2005
12:00 AM


Beloved,
You have entered into a season of great changes, things will come so fast that it seems you cannot keep up, so you must be prepared for what ever comes. Physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. The changes can come quite suddenly and catch you unawares if you have not readied yourself. But have no FEAR, and do not move from your position unless I direct your steps.

You must trust me for everything, do not get ahead of yourself, and worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have plenty to think about when it comes, just be in the moment in Me, and you will be amazed how smoothly things will go.

Though there is strength in numbers, you must not allow yourself to be distracted from Me in many conversations, learn to be quiet, speak nothing that does not come from Me. You must learn to hear My voice clearly and to do that, you must leave the noise and chatter behind of those in your midst and come away with Me, and let Me speak into your heart.

Be not afraid of what you hear, and the events that are happening around you or in the world, for the enemy will try to come in like a flood, but I shall raise up a standard against him. No one shall be able to pluck you out of My hand. Be not fearful, for fear comes directly from the enemy, to cause you to fall off of your stand, to run, to be afraid. I said to put on your full armor, pray without ceasing, and when you have done all STAND.

My Word is truth, and there will come a testing of your faith. I will test those on the earth to see if there will be faith. This shall come before judgement so that man has an opportunity to repent of his deeds. Though I will test you, it is all about your trusting Me to care for you even in the worst of conditions. Just as the ravens at My command fed Elijah, so shall I feed you. Just as Daniel, Meshach and Abendego were tested and came out like gold tried in the fire, so shall you be tested.

Have no thought for tomorrow, let Me lead you step by step today. Keep you thoughts and your eyes and ears on Me. Ask me for guidance, do not do your own leading.

The greater your love for me, and the greater you Know Me and My love for you, the more will you trust Me in ALL THINGS.

You want to know the future and run to this prophet and that prophet, but I would have you run to me and ask Me for direction.

Many fortell of this event or that event that is to happen, and there will be many, and many cataclysmic world events, turmoil and terror, but I say to you this day, do not look to events, nor seek after signs, but look to me, seek Me with all of your heart. I direct the steps of the righteous. Be more concerned with holiness and purity and becoming One with Me in these days of great trial. For I kill and make a live, I bless and I curse, but those who follow after righteousness, shall in no way be destroyed. Many blessing come to those who are obedient to My word, and if you judge yourself you shall not be judged. 

Hide yourself in Me, and if I want you out of the sight of men, I shall move you, but you are to wait on me, and do not do what others are doing, follow me, and no one else.

Take heed that you be not deceived, for their are many in the world sent to deceive my lambs, do not follow after people, but be followers of Me. There have been many in days past that followed after man and their destruction came swiftly. Now is the time to be very discerning and wise, for you will not know when you are being deceived until it is too late. 

If you have any doubts about something, go to the word, come to Me and ask Me, trust me with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, but in all your ways acknowledge me, and I shall direct your path.

Know Me, and Know My voice so that you not turn to the right or the left without My direction. Trust me for everything, and I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming upon the whole earth.

I have prepared you for a great outpouring, people will be seeking where they can turn, and there will be a great end time harvest, there is a time for everything under the sun, a time to plant and a time to harvest, the harvest is coming. Trust Me.






Why Do You Hesitate Between Two Opinions

February 3, 2009

Beloved Shoshanna

 This word has stayed with me for about a week now and so I sat down this morning and wrote what the Lord is saying, we need to heed His warnings as these are perilous times.

1Ki 18:21  And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.

 

Why to you hesitate between two opinions, If I be God then follow Me, if man, then follow man.

But you shall see that  man can do nothing, unless I allow it to be so.  To follow man you are chasing after wind, when you choose Me, you choose Life.

Follow me, and I will give you life, Life in the now, and for all eternity.

There are many deceiving spirits in the world, sent by the great deceiver. false teachers, false prophets and false  christ.

They are sent to draw you away from My TRUTH, Jesus Christ, Yeshua is My truth.

My Word today is being torn into many pieces they do not resemble my Word which is truth,  what is being taught has many shades and hues, it is has changed into something I did not speak.  it is dead and it is leading man into the enemies hand.

My words are pure, they are Spirit and Life and they speak into a heart and changes it just as  a sword, it pierces, it cuts out all that is not of Me.   it is meant to grow you into the mage of Christ, the fullness of Christ.

  Heb 4:12  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The word that is given by man today is not MY Word, it is dry moldy bread, it not fit for My people and does not come from Me.

If you do not feed on Me daily, you will follow the sound of another's voice that is not of Me.  if the voices you are hearing are not speaking My truth you will be pulled  and tossed, wavering to and fro like the waves of the sea, tossed to and fro by the winds,

No longer do many of My teachers listen to me, they listen to many voices and teach from the mind of man rather then by the Spirit of God.  They have turned their ears from the truth, because they have itching ears.

Come to me daily listening to  My pure Word and I will feed your soul and build you into a pure vessel, a strong house one that can stand in the coming days of deception and betrayal of man.  Overcomers that I have called you to be.

Beloved when you truly know Me, you will not deny Me and you will stand as a house built on the rock, and your faith shall not fail in that hour.

Do not listen to voices that do not line up with my Word of truth.  come to me daily, I will teach you that which will always line up with My word, line upon line, precept upon precept.

 

You cannot follow Me and the world, which is lead of man. follow nothing or no one that is counter to my Word.  Have faith in me only.

There are many that are sent to deceive, false teachers and prophets and false christ that are even now in the world they are sent to draw you and the world away to believe the lie.

What seems to be of Me is often not of me, it is a counterfeit, it may appear to be of such great beauty, and powerful,  but beware of the angels of light that will speak of love and light.  They are radiant and captivating they have a strong pull once you are under their power. They are deceiving many they are entering into the church and are drawing away those not adhering to My Word.  Line up precept upon precept, every word spoken.

They are deceiving many even to do great signs and miracles attempting to deceive the very elect, preparing them for the evil one.

Pray for discernment, filter everything you see and hear with My word.  don't shun my Word, the days are getting darker.  Didn't I say even My elect shall be deceived if possible.

Be wise as serpents and harmless of doves. You are standing on the precipice of eternity watching revelations unfold.  Listen to the sound of the horsemen in the distance. They ARE COMING.

Learn to discern, be ready, your lamp lit let your prayers be as incense to Me upon My throne, Cry out for mercy, cry out for repentance, cry out for souls to  be saved the hour is near, the time draws near.

Be found in me. I am all you need.  I love you and I am watching over you and all the events as they unfold upon the earth. I send my messengers to warn, to exhort, to discern the times, to prepare, to seek Me only.

I have not appointed you to wrath, but you must follow Me only, you must turn from everything that is not befitting of a saint of God.

You shall overcome, you have My spirit within you if you walk in My spirit. I will lead you all the way.  You must listen to  me and My word only and love the truth, as I shall send a strong delusion to those who do not love the truth and that they shall believe a lie.

You are  not among those who shall fall away if you shall cling to me, and My word, and be ready to listen and to obey. I love you, stand firm in My word I am coming.

  • Your Life Hid In Me


    Beloved Shoshanna
    Oct 12 2004 12:00AM 


    Col. 3:1-3 
    If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. [2] Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. [3] For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. Beloved, I would have you to set your mind and affections above where I am seated, and not on the earth. When you look upon the trials, changes and all the chaos around you it is overwhelming to you, keep your focus on Me, and things above.

    For you died and when you were baptized into My death and raised with Me into newness of life, into My life.

    Now put aside all thoughts of yourself and trust Me utterly and completely, hold back nothing. I will take you through whatever you must face, because your life is hid in Me.

    Everything is moving now at an accelerated pace, and beloved this is to teach you to rest in Me, for you cannot accomplish anything in and of yourself. You must give me everything, so that I can show You how effortlessly it is when I am in control.

    I am showing you what is necessary for what is ahead, you shall overcome as your life is hid in Me, and you continually walk in My Spirit.

    Get ALL of your thoughts centered on Me, rather than centered on self. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually mind is life and peace.

    If then you are hid in Me, take no thought for your life. 

    Check daily to see where you have your thoughts, and quickly cast down all thoughts that are not on me, and My kingdom. This is imperative to your faith and trust in Me, for your thoughts can cause you to lose confidence and cause you to take things into your own hands.

    If you do not completely trust me, then You do not truly KNOW ME. To KNOW ME, is to know that I completely care for My own.

    If you think it is not true within yourself, you can see that you have been trusting in your own self and the arm of flesh, rather than in Me.

    Think deeply on these things, and you will find that it is true what I say. If you are not fully and completely trusting in Me, I am not the Lord of your life.

    How beautiful our relationship will be when you are tired of doing everything yourself, and just let go and let me take over.

    I come to the door and knock and if any man hears and opens the door, I will come in and sup with Him. This is a relationship that will be like nothing you have on the earth, as you sit and sup with me, and allow me to set on the throne of your heart, to rule and reign in all things, there will be blessings forever more, My grace will abound as you sit with me in heavenly places.

    Yes, there will be much tribulation, but I have overcome the world, and you will also, as I am truly the Lord in your life. A life that is hid in Me.
  • Beloved do You Love Me


    Beloved Shoshanna
    Oct 20 2004 12:00AM 


    Beloved,

    If you only knew how very much I love you, your life would be so different, not that there would not be challenges, but you would rise above them in heavenly places.

    My heart years for our time together, I stand at the door waiting for you to come, I watch as I see you so busy with so many things, waiting for you to come and sup with Me.

    I watch over you as you sleep, longing for you to rise to spend the early hours with Me, but often you sleep on, loving sleep more than Me. I am the one who comforts you when you are sad, through you cannot see, I weep for all that grieves your heart, grieves me. Heb 4:15 Luke 19:41.

    Beloved, how much do you love Me, do you long for time to spend with Me? Do you quickly put aside all to sit with Me so that I can reveal My heart to you , and to teach you MY heart and My ways? 

    Beloved, how much do you love me? What do you spend time thinking about? Do you recognize that I created all things for you to enjoy, but mostly I created you for Me to enjoy. Ponder these things in your heart. Do you see me in everything, everything in your daily life? I am there in every circumstance even those you attribute to the enemy, for nothing comes into your life without my knowledge and permission. Your experiences may sometimes seem so devastating, but I allow them for child you would not grow without them. Sometimes they are very humbling and very painful, but this is the way to build your faith so to become so strong that nothing can penetrate it. Do you love me enough to endure all that comes?

    Do not rely on your feelings, because if they are not under the control of My Spirit, it will take you from faith to fear and then you will do and say things that do not glorify Me.

    Beloved the fire is coming, and unless I have your full attention, your complete heart you will not be prepared. What I say to you is crucial and I say take it to your heart, for you must be ready.

    I have placed certain people in your life, to help each to grow. But I would have you not to put your focus on them, but on Me. do not love people and things more than me. Matthew 10:37

    When your focus and your heart is on Me, I will make all things beautiful in MY time. I know My own and My own know me, and I will surely care for you even as I do the little sparrows.

    Examine your heart, where is your love, where is your love continually, what captivates your heart and thinking each day.

    When I am your heart, you care about what I care about, you weep over the things that I weep over. You will see with your heart that hells mouth is widening by the day, and that souls enter in by the hour. Maybe it was a loved one, did you tell them about me, and how much I loved them, even gave My life for them?

    Oh! Beloved, cannot you see I brought you here for Me, and for My purposes and not your own?

    Look again at your focus, is it on self, i it on things that perish with the using. Are you concerned with trivial matters? Are they on things of the world which is passing away and all that is in it?

    I would have you live your life as if it was the very last day on earth. Love would be all that matters, our relationship would become so important to you, and you would wonder if you loved enough. If you had to do it all over, would you do it differently, would you treat people differently?

    Beloved, from this day forward live life as if it was your very last day you have to make a difference in the lives others. What would you change? This is the first day of the rest of your life, choose wisely and prayerfully.

    The ability to love others comes from loving me, you are incapable of loving as I do, it is in our relationship, that I am able to fulfill My purposes in You.

    Love is revealed in how much you pray for others, and for what is closest to My heart. Allow Me to transform your heart, that we become One heart and One mind, that I may live fully in and through you.

    And above all things come to Me, so that I can reveal My love to you. Ephes. 3:17-19 

    I would have you KNOW Me and My love, so that you would trust Me implicitly, for love overcomes. when you know My love, the things of the world grow strangely dim, nothing can compare. My love will bring you peace in the greatest trials, it will fill you with light. Do not cling to My love, hanging onto it for yourself. You must give it away, just as I gave Mine. Love is to be given away, that it may transform lives, just as yours is being transformed.

    Meditate on these words, and ask yourself, how much you love me, beloved.

    O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. [2] Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. [3] Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. [4] For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. [5] Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. [6] Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it. 


    Beloved,
    I have sought you , I have searched for you, until I know you. I would have you do the same. I know every thought, I know your heart. I know everything about you, even your inward parts. I know your comings and your goings, how you will speak before it is formed on your lips. My hand of protection has cradled you from birth. Nothing happens that I don't first know about. The things satan has planned for your demise, I turn for your good., if you will only trust Me.

    Satan has no power over you once you belong to me, he can only do what you allow him to do. More often then not My children allow sin in their life and then unwittingly are allowing satan in with his evil plans. Sin is an open invitation, so do not allow any sin into your life, it is a welcome mat that satan does not miss.

    Ask Me to cleanse your heart, and mind of all sin that clings so tenaciously. Bind every hindrance, every bondage, in My NAME. Cast them out, for they drive a wedge between us. Release forgiveness, for unforgiveness brings satan into your life to bring havoc and destruction into every area of your life, including your body.

    Check because many of my children think they have forgiven but in fact they have not in truth. More often your sins stem from your own selfish nature that has not been given over to death. Refusal of your will to give me preeminence.

    Beloved, why do you keep Me at a distance, choosing to spend time doing things for Me, that seem important to you, yet so meaningless without My Presence in your life, without intimate communion with Me who you serve.

    Why do you reject Me, ignore Me, as you go through the day. I want all of you, all of your thoughts and plans all of your heart.

    Though you have My Spirit within you, your mind will and emotions need to be in alignment with mine. Not your will be done, but My will be done in your life. That you would no longer think and act on your own volition, but according to My thoughts and according to My hearts desires. You must give Me your emotions as well, you often act out your emotions, but given to Me and under My control of My Spirit.

    I Am refining you and preparing you for greater things, but you have allowed these hindrances to stand in the way of the process, and block the flow of My Spirit in your life, so you find My discipline continues.

    Trust Me, do not lean on your own understanding.

    Do not focus on others
    sins, as this blinds you to your own, take the moat out of your own eye, so you can see clearly to take the moat out of your brothers eye.

    My eye misses nothing, and nothing is out of My hand.

    Do not blame everything on the devil, he does nothing without My granting him permission to tempt you. He is behind all evil in the world but he does it only as My plan purposes for your ultimate good in the end. He cannot hurt My sanctified ones those sold out to Me.

    He is used to test your loyalty to Me, and your love for Me. What do you love more than Me? What do you cling to, that you are putting first? I must have it all. Do not be like those who reject Me and turn their backs on Me. But seek Me, seek Me with passion, and then you will know me.
  • Choose This Day Who You Will Serve 
    Beloved Shoshanna
    Sep 25 2004 12:00AM 


    Ezekiel 14:12-14 
    The word of the Lord came again to me, saying, [13] Son of man, when the land sinneth against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break thet staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it: [14] Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord God.

    Hear the word of the Lord, take heed to yourselves, if I spared not the angels, how then shall I spare you if you walk not in My righteousness.

    Each man must walk in righteousness, imputed by faith in Me, through My sacrifice on the cross for them, each man or woman must carry their own cross.

    Choose this day who you will serve. You have been shown the way, walk in it.

    Teach your children, for you will not deliver them by your righteousness, each is delivered by their own righteousness they receive it through Me, by faith in Me. 

    The balances have been weighed, and the people have been found wanting, their sins multiplied, sin upon sin.

    I see your hearts and your love toward me, I see the long struggle as you have allowed Me to refine and purify you, so that you would learn how to walk in My righteousness. Beloved, you must be wholly Mine, that I may perfect the work I have begun in you.

    You must hate the world, and the things of the world, that you would hate sin, as I hate sin. You cannot love Me and love the world at the same time. Luke 16:13 
    No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. 

    Again I say choose this day who you will serve.

    I shall come to mark those who hate evil and love righteousness. The time is near My child, when the world will hate you just as it has hated me. Matthew 5:10-12 
    Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. [11] Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. [12] Rejoice, and
    be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. 

    This is the same cross I carried, and you too will be required to walk in My footsteps, to take the way of the cross.

    Are you prepared beloved?

    Matthew 24:13 
    But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 

    Many are called by My name, they have not accepted the cross, they are in name only. These are fearful of the cross, but "they overcome by the blood of the lamb, and the word of their testimony, and they love not their lives unto death".

    You must choose this day, and then walk in it, soon you will be forced to make that choice and you will then not be ready, for what you choose today will determine your readiness in that day.

    I shall give you grace, My spirit will be with you and in you, but it is necessary for you not to wait, for soon My judgments will be in the earth one upon another. During this time many will turn away, they will desire to save their own flesh, rather than stand in My name, what ever the cost.

    Begin now, to rely ONLY on Me, no matter what is going on around you, stay hidden in the secret place for this is your peace, and place of safety. Stay in My word, and meditate on it day and night. 2 Peter 2:9 
    The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

Choose this Day Who You Shall Serve






The Hour Of My Visitation/Update
Beloved Shoshanna
Jan 17, 2009

I am not sure how this will come out as the Word clean up box is not here and If it is not it scrambles all the scriptures. 

I received this message below almost a year ago and as we see everything that has been propheside my many prophets are in fact coming to pass in this hour 
The landscape will be changing drastically very soon, and those who have been deceived that are looking for a man to save them, will find that what they have wished for has come true, but it will not be what they are expecting, they will find that they have been putting their hopes in someone that is being manipulated as in a chess game, and you will learn that deception comes when you trust those who the Lord did not send. Do not put your trust in any man. Only the living God should you put your trust. 

What is coming will appear to be man made but what you are seeing is spiritual, 
principalities and powers
This is why you must learn to discern, good and evil, what is true and what is not true, often what you are seeing is an illusion or it is a very clever deception to draw you away from truth. 

Turn all media off, because it will be through media that you will be deceived into believing what you are seeing and hearing is in fact true, but in fact it is a diabolical plan by the evil one. it is actually a something you will not discern in the Spirit, unless you have exercised your spirit of discernment. 

Entertainment is not only a great distraction and a deceiver, but it neutralizes all the Father is trying to do in your heart. 
Learn to separate what must be done from what is needful, and the only thing needful is to be completely spiritually and even physically ready for what is coming. To be ready, waiting and knowing the Father in intimate fellowship. 

In the coming days if you do not heed the 
spirit of God and listen to Him only, you will be deceived, Abba will lead you, he will tell you what He wants you to do. 

Brothers and sisters do not wait to see if what I am saying is true, I have been watching this all unfold in the Spirit since 2004. 
Be ready for the hour of your visitation is near. 

You must be able to discern the Father's voice from other voices, this is one area many will find they have failed. 
Make sure as satan comes as and angel of light. What looks right may not be right, but through your exercised discernment you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. 

Get into ALERT MODE, watch and Pray, shut out all other voices, but the Lord's. 
Seek the Lord as to where he would have you be at all times, and keep the Love of Christ flowing in your heart at all times. 

May Yeshua, come, and may we be ready with our lamps lit with an abundant of oil. 


The Hour Of My Visitation 
Beloved Shoshanna 
Feb 15, 2008 



Are You prepared to meet Me face to face? 

I have been preparing you for that day, when you would see My face, and I would see My image reflecting back to me. 

You are very distracted by many things, and the hour of My visitation is near. You must let go of so many things you grasp onto, and allow Me to just live My life in you. 
I ask you, will you truly be ready? 
You have been looking at the things going on in the earth, things that I would not have you involved with that will all pass away with the rest of the world. 

In order for you to know My Coming, you must be watching, not in the earth but watching in the Spirit. As long as you are tied to the earth and what is going on in that dimension you will not know what I am doing, nor will you know the time of My visitation, and you may miss the very day and hour you have been preparing for. 

You are like little children going from one thing to another, never having your attention on one thing, you cannot change a hair on your head nor can you change the word that has gone forth in the earth and is unfolding before your eyes. 

Take your hands off, and pray. Seek My face. 

Haven't I told you I would pass over My own, those who do not put their own lives before others. 
Many have a very dim view of this earth, they look at it as if with a telescope upon the earth and into their own territory and are not concerned about my vast creation, that expands across continents. 
I placed everyone in their own territory but as my children with my heart you must be concerned about all of those I have called near and far, and the poor and forsaken in the alleys and dumps of My world. 

I want you to bring them My life, my heart, I want you to give them My joy, and My love for them, with even as much as a cup of water from me. 
This is what I would have you be doing, but do it as you look into My eyes. When I come I want you to be found pouring forth My life into others. 

You are not to fear what is coming upon the earth, for it is knowing I have spoken the word and it is so. and surely You will be in My 
hand as I have promised. 

I am not happy with many of My Children, as they are like a bride who has gotten tired of waiting for her bridegroom and has found other lovers, and other things to do, and is not looking for My appearance, My visitation, she is thinking her bridegroom is not coming, and she will not be ready when I come as her eyes are on the physical things of the earth her eyes are not on her bridegroom, because she has lost interest, and her light is going out. Repent of where you have fallen. 

Watch and Listen. 
For the hour of My visitation is near. I have sent my prophets to warn the people, but they go on about their life as if they never heard a word. 
There is coming a time when people will yearn for a word from the Lord and it will not be there, and they will wander from sea to sea looking for a word from the Lord and there shall be none, because they refused to hear my prophets they refused to hearken unto My words and do them. 

So what you are seeing today in the earth is evil upon evil, flesh upon flesh, the spirit of violence, and greed, lust and perversion are taking over the earth and those in the flesh will be caught with them, when I fulfill my word in the earth which has been spoken through my prophets, it will be a time of mourning, a time of great sadness, hearing children crying for hunger, and for fear, and men killing themselves because everything they have worked for is gone, as a puff of smoke, here today will be gone tomorrow. 
Women vulnerable to the evil all around them, loved ones dying and governments at wits end as to what to do. Only one way they shall see, to sell out to the evil one. 

I SAY NO! YOU OVERCOME BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB AND THE WORD OF YOUR TESTIMONY. 

My Remnant shall stand firm unto the end, even if it is the end of your life here on earth you stand firm with the oracles of God, just as James did. 
And as he did He saw the heavens open and he saw the glory of My Father and He saw me, waiting at the right side of My Father. 

I say do not be caught in the world, and in the flesh but in the spirit at the hour of My visitation. 

Be found of Me waiting and watching at the door. invite Me in, I am near, I am coming.

"I Have Loved You With An Everlasting Love"

Belovedservant

Dec 14 2008 11:20PM

 
Brothers and sisters, I strongly believe the Lord wants me to give you this word from Him, in this hour while there is still a little time to do so.
 
"I Have Loved you With An Everlasting Love, You Are Mine."

 Our God has wanted our love from the
very beginning of time, when He walked in the garden of Eden  with Adam and Eve in the cool of the day.
Yet
first man and woman turned in disobedience to self, rather in making their relationship with the Father their priority, loving the Lord God with all of their heart, soul, and strength.
Deu 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
 
He is calling each one of us to turn from ourselves and love Him with all of our hearts, with all of our soul, and with all of our might.
He loves each one of us with everything He is.
He created each of us to love and be loved. He created us to love Him, and when He manifested Himself as a man, Jesus Christ-Yeshua, He came to redeem you to Himself for each of you to see how much He loves you,  as a man He would allow Himself to go through the greatest physical, and emotional pain, as he gave of Himself to hang on that excruciating cross until death.

  It didn't end there, because He rose from the dead on the
third day and He lives, making intercession to the Father for all that have received His love, and make Him their Lord and Savior, laying our selves down to live for Him, as overcomers of the world the flesh and the devil.
We belong to him now, we do not belong to ourselves, and what He wants and wanted that day as He hung on that cross, was  to redeem us to Himself,  that we would belong to Him and would give Him our lives and all of our love from the very fiber of our being.
 
Satan's plan from the beginning was to draw each of us to himself, and away from God, he wanted to be worshiped as God, and each time we sin or chase after the things of this world, he is drawing us away from our Father God  and our love wanes more and more until Abba is put on a back burner.  When we put every other thing before Him,  we come out from that secret place in Him and we are more vulnerable to satan's schemes and we can be moved out of the hedge of protection. Just as satan got Job out of the protection of the hedge.
 
Psalm 91 is the word for this hour we are in,  these are promises God is making to those who love Him.
Psa 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the
shadow of the Almighty.
 
Psa 91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 
 
Psa 91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
 
Psa 91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
 

Abiding is the key to every protection we read about in Psalm 91.  These promises are  not for those who are mouth professors, but for those who make it a point to pour their heart out to him, that separate themselves from the love of the world and it's system, and remain in Him as we go through out the day.
 
There cannot be any other loves that take His place, because when other things and  people  take Hisplace, He withdraws and we can find ourselves out from beneath His wings.
 
Our main focus should be worshiping Him in truth and Spirit, for Him to be our daily portion, and to put our full trust in him, the author and finisher of our faith.  And to go and teach others about His love for us, and how  we are to love him and our neighbors as ourselves.
I know that many in other countries, (specifically Africa) may read this and because of traditions of men you may have never heard this, nor learned  to make it a part of your life.
 I want you to know that our whole reason to become a Christian is to come to know the Lord and to have an abiding relationship with Him. To love him more then your own lives.
Rather then a dead religion, it is a living abiding walk with the Lord in the Spirit, rather then by works of the flesh, it isn't in following tradition in dead works, but following the living Lord in love, with our whole hearts and to tell the world about our wonderful Lord, who laid His life down on the cross, to bring us back into relationship with Him, a relationship we lost in disobedience.
 
Joh 21:17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. 
 
The Lord has commanded us to  preach the gospel and teach His own how He loves them enough to die for them, and that we are to love him and our neighbors as ourselves.
This is the gospel in a nutshell, it is all about loving Him and our neighbors, near and far this shows the world He lives in us.
 
The Lord has shown us how to live, He has given us His word so that we have a  road map to follow on the way into the kingdom.
They are living words, given to us by inspiration of  the
Holy Spirit through godly men of God.
 The
word of God is alive and it will change you, it will change your heart, just speak forth the word, proclaim its truth it so it gets into your hearts.  You are a new creation.
 
If you do not surrender your will to the Lord God,(Yahweh) you will follow after satan, as he will continue to  put roadblocks and temptations  before you, if you follow after your own desires, ultimately you will become a follower of satan rather then a follower of God.
 
I know it has always been hard for people to love a God who they could not see, that is why so many made idols to worship, which God hates.
 
  So thus, he came as a man, He manifested as the Son of God, Jesus Christ, Yeshua, so that He could be seen, and touched and known intimately.
 The disciples knew him intimately, especially John who would rest his head upon Yeshua's chest in adoration.

But  now we have
God's word as a living testimony of His  love for us, when He came  as a man. No man has ever laid his life down for us in such a terrible manner of death, the most painful way to die, not even a friend nor anyone that ever lived but Jesus Christ,  the Son of God.
 
My brothers and sisters, he did this because He loves you, and me and He is worthy of all of our hearts, all of our love, He is worthy of our laying down our own lives in love for Him.
He is not some far off God, he is ever Present with you, and His Presence is manifested to you when you pour your love out to him in worship.
 When you sin or walk in the flesh, or pay Him no heed, He withdraws Himself, though He is near when you call, when you come to him with all your heart.
 
You don't have to wait, for God to draw you, because he has been doing that for so long and you have been ignoring His call, His gentle tugs at your heart have gone unnoticed, but He is there.  He is near and all you have to do is say His name, Jesus (Yeshua)  and open up your heart and pour your love out to Him.  He is worthy of all of our love, He is worthy for us to to lay our lives down, to pick up our cross and follow after Him.
 
He has been trying to get our attention as soon as we knew there was a God and even before that, in so many ways, unimaginable.
Satan has put so many diversions before us, and the biggest one is money, possessions, or lack thereof, this is his way to draw us away from God and to himself.

 In Yahweh God there is no lack, it is in Him that we learn as we trust Him that He will provides for us in supernatural ways.  Ways we never dreamed possible, He makes a way out of no way.   Hebrews 11:1
 
When our focus is outward toward the world and the things of the world, He will not compete for your attention,  but when you  begin to love Him with all of your heart, He will show you how very much He loves you.
 Turn your eyes upon Jesus, it is about relationship, not religion.  How can you have a relationship with someone you do not truly love, nor trust. Mouthing words that are not from the heart is not a relationship, and whether you know it or not, He knows the difference.
 
It is not to say that in these coming days as the world is in more and more in chaos and as the economy worsens, that we will not go through some trials, but when we absolutely put our hope and trust in Him, and we love Him with all of our hearts, his promises in His word will be fulfilled.
He will hide you, He will supernaturally provide, his angels will keep you just as his word promises, and you will praise Him for He is worthy of all praise and glory.
 
Beloved one who reads this. God loves you with an everlasting love, He is calling you to Himself away from the ways of the world and all its attraction.
He did not die in vain, he will have a bride, without spot and wrinkle and that bride loves Him with all of her heart and is devoted to Him. The cares of the world and things of the world have no more pull on His bride, for she has let go of everything but him.
To spend eternity with Him, we must know Him and His love for us, and we must be mutual partakers of His love, how can we spend eternity with him never having known Him as our bridegroom.
If you have not known Him in this way, he is calling you to Himself.
He wants you to know Him in a way you have never known, rather then just a God in word only.  The Lord wants to become real in your life.
 
He will reveal Himself to you in a real way if you will You will love Him, and keep his commandments.
 You shall know that He  is there, ever longing for your attention and love.
Joh 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
 
Joh 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
 
Holy, holy, holy Lord God almighty, Who was Who is, and Is to come, worthy, Holy, Holy, Holy, we bow before Your Majesty the name of the Lord is to be praised!  He  must increase, I must decrease.  Pour out your love Saints, worship the Bridegroom.



The Power Of The Cross
Beloved Servant
Dec 7 2008 11:35PM



1 Cor 1:17  For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

1Co 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Has the power of the cross been  revealed in your life?  You need to hear the life changing word of the gospel.

Not just words of man's choosing, not words from any book, but the life changing word of God. You need to have the cross applied to your life.

Brothers and sisters, the only way into LIFE IS THE  CROSS, and to receive that life you must DIE.

The preaching of the cross is the POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION.

We have been given the mandate to GO into all the world and preach the gospel to the nations. Who will go, who will speak to nations, who will speak to their neighbors?

It is time to get ready, time is short, their are neighbors out of work, bankrupt, Go, and speak the words of the cross. Give them that life only found in Christ and the cross.  Set them free, from the shackels of materialism.

There are people all over the world that are feeling life is hopeless, that not a soul cares about them.

Preach to them about Yeshua, Jesus Christ who came and laid His life down just for them, that he came to give them a whole new life, free of sin and bondage. that if he cares for the grass of the field, he cares and loves such as one who call upon his name to be saved.

We must Go preach the gospel to the nations, it doesn't matter where you Go, just that we are commanded to Go.

Go and make disciples, do it online if nothing else but Go.

Tell them that there is someone who died on the cross for them and was resurected, teach them how to have a relationship with Yahweh God, teach them how to walk and live in the Holy Spirit, that he wants to give them a real life, that will be life more abundant, full of righteousness and holiness, a walk of power, not of words, but POWER.

Life changing power, that will give them victory over death, and satan. Victory over every sin, victory over every addiction, and every tradition and  will set them free.

It isn't about coming to Christ as if He is a Santa Claus, they are a dime a dozen, but he is a life Changer, and can bring deliverance and victory over every area of their life, but they must apply the cross to their life. And that calls for death.

He will bring victory to every area of your life as well.  The word of God is for reading, meditating and studying,  not for getting dusty.

The word of God is powerful, it is alive.

There is no power in the pulpit these days because our Pastors have closed their bibles and speak a social gospel, but we must get back to the preaching of the word of God the preaching of the cross, it has life in it, it is power, and if there is power lacking in your life it is because the word of God is lacking in your life.

There is LIFE in the word of God, it is Spirit and it is LIFE. When you have LIFE, you have LOVE, it literally oozes out of you.

There are people around the world who have risked death to get the gospel to people in very dangerous places, these are true disciples, they are more then christians in  name only, `1,000 Christians die a year in martyrdom, yes it is true. While we sit in our warm houses doing nothing, often  not even reading the word of God, they are out there risking their lives.

They do it with no fear, because they have LIFE AND THE LOVE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT FLOWING THROUGH THEM.

Not every mission field is dangerous, but it is a sacrifice. You must sacrifice something, and you start with self.  I ask you is having real life woth the loss of the self life?

I was asked what makes me want to reach those in our mission field. and all I can say is it isn't me, it is the Holy Spirit of LIFE and LOVE  that flow from me.  I want to be right in the thick of it, but without support I have not the means except to be a director for now.  I will be there when the Lord supplies that need.  And releases me to go.

I spent about 8 years in the streets of San Francisco and Berkeley in the thick of evangelism in a place that is not friendly to Christians.

I do know it starts with detaching from all the "things" of the world  And you will not get it with one foot in the world and one in the church.

You must apply the cross to your life. DIE TO YOUR SELF, DIE TO THE WORLD.

You will not have the Lord's love flowing through you when you are hanging onto the things of the world.

This is why you have not answered the call, to "Go"  There is a cost and it means dying to self, it means letting go of the things of the world, turning your back on them so you can obey God.

The Lord has said "Occupy" until I come. He isn't saying occupy your favorite chair watching the football game, or watching your favorite television shows. Nor is he saying to occupy  your place of residence. He is saying occupy, busy yourself with His business, His kingdom.

I know you are afraid of  confrontations. Was Yeshua afraid of confrontation? Was the apostles or the disciples of the early church afraid of confrontations? No, they spoke bodly and the only way you will speak boldy is if you are filled with Life, from the Holy Spirit

 

Christians have become so comfortable in America, they don't want anything to disrrupt their way of life and just want to feel  good, to talk about things that are comfortable for them.

I have heard christians argument they are not called into the mission field, but that is a lie from the pit of hell. The bible was written for our exhortation and example, so don't use that exuse.  And Jesus Christ was speaking to his disciples which is you and me.

Well wait a minute, maybe I am wrong as most American christians are just pew sitters, they go to church to feel good.

Not hear a message repent, and become disciples.

 This is a tough walk brothers and sisters. And from what I see in a country that claims to be Christians that have let the minority of Christian haters take over our nation and enact laws that take away our godly rights to walk as disciples, to pray and teach the word of God when and where we choose.  Can't we even stand up and be counted for Christ? Everything will soon be stripped away and it will be only the boldness of the Holy spirit that will move forward in the name of Christ.

We  have allowed ungodly behavior take place instead of what our founding Fathers have enacted.  Yes it is Christians who have allowed this to take place they have stood by while we have been stripped.

So the power of the cross is missing in most of those who call themselves "Christians".  The power of the cross speaks with boldness, this is the LIFE that I speak about, it is the same Life that will hold one who hears the gospel and they cannot move until they fall to their knees in surrender to God.  This is the power of the cross, and it takes full surrender to Yawheh, it takes dying to self

This is the same boldness that is willing to Go, whether it is across the world or to our nations streets.

If you have that LIFE, don't squander it in the world, use it for the kingdom. Time is short we must be about our Father's  business.  PREACH THE GOSPEL, PREACH THE CROSS. don 't preach a Crossless gospel that has no power.

If you absolutely cannot GO, send someone, support someone to go, send to missions, you can only take with you what you have done for the kingdom.  Join a team in your area, if there is  none, start one but Go Preach the gospel.  Say, "Lord Send me."

Don't agree with me and do nothing, the prophetic clock is ticking, do something, do anything you are physically able to do!  Speak forth his life changing word!
May the Lord fill you with boldness, strength and abundance of love.





Elijah's Trial

Beloved Servant
Dec 7 2008 10:57AM



 
Brothers and sisters, it is time to get ready, for our soon coming King.

We have been warned for years now about what is here, and what is yet to come, and it has been going on mostly deaf ears. But some of the body is beginning to wake up after a long sleep like
Rip Van Winkle waking up from a long nap of hundreds of years.
I know personally I have sent out warnings since 2004 and many prophets have been proclaiming these days for years and now they are here upon us.

Yahweh has been calling us home, He has been trying to draw the body of Christ to him, and away from the love of the world, the false doctrines, and the love of "things" which cannot be taken with us.
Naked we came and naked we will leave.

The only garment we will have on will be a robe of righteousness, if we have it clean and spotless when He comes.
And the souls we have helped to bring into the kingdom.

What we are seeing today is the results of clinging to things of this world not being able to let go of the want for more toys and things and forgetting oneself and reaching out to the hopeless and the helpless. the poor and needy. Giving them hope.
The church has spent on itself, amassing bigger mega churches, fancy cars, houses and you name it they have got it.

I know the argument, that the Lord wants us to prosper, that is absolutely right, but He said Seek first the KINGDOM, and All things will be added.
So if you are seeking the kingdom first, things will come to you, rather then you seeking "things". ALL things shall be added.

The Lord wants to prosper us, so we will reach out to others, not just to get, to increase your own goods, our own life, but to get to give to others in need.

There is so much fallacy in many of the teachings about the tithe, and because of the false teachings, there is little help in reaching the lost or touching the lives of hurting people around the world and even in our own back yard. There is nothing left as it goes all to the church, and to ones own life.

So we are seeing very hard times in America because Yahweh wants to see where our heart is, whether will go on and trust him even in the hard times.
Or will we be like Elijah who ran off to the brook Kidron just wanting to die because of the persecution and death threats of Jezebel.
Elijah was powerfully used by God, you see all the amazing miracles done through him proceeding his discouragement.
Now he just wanted to give up and die because he was going through some hard times and needed greater faith.

Oh you of little faith, look at Job, his family was all wiped out, his wife was on his back telling him to curse God as he suffered in every way possible and was in so much physical pain in his own body.
On top of that he lost everything! and because of his tenacity and faith all was returned after his trial in an even greater way.
Yet through all of that He continued to bless God!

This is the kind of faith we are going to have to have in the coming days, it won't just be the financial melt down, what is coming is much greater. And if you do not know who your source is, if you are looking to others for your needs instead of Yahweh alone, if you do not know where your protection is, if you do not fully understand you will yield to your flesh You have no other redeemer, no other to save you but the Lord, if you lean on any other you will not make it. What is coming is the trial of our faith. It shall be world wide not just here in US.

Yahweh God will bring down the haughty and the proud, and lift up the humble, He will bring down the coveteous and bless the giver to the needy. If you draw out your soul to the hungry. and satisfy the afflicted soul. Then shall your light rise in obscurity, and darkness be as the noon day.
The Lord shall guide you continually, satisfy your soul and make fat thy bones, and you shall be like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters fail not. Isaiah 58:10-11.

If you are seeking that which is lost, and bringing souls to Christ, you will shine like the stars in this hour.

We are heading for great trials. It will require great faith. It will be not only be a triall of our faith alone, but it will be our love that will also be tested in the coming days.

There are only two commandments to love God with all of our heart, with all of our mind and with and all of our strength, then.....We are to love our neighbor as ourselves.

I am not talking about throwing a couple of dollars into the salvation Army bucket, though it is a start, but it means putting others even before ourselves, looking after our brothers and sisters in need, not just telling them to be warm.
Of course we are to pray for one another but also to be like the widows mite, who gave all she had, it isn't giving out of our abundance that counts but giving out of our lack.
It is not like throwing a few bucks you have extra into the bucket but reaching deep down, to the last coin, and throwing it in. This man or woman shall be more then abundantly blessed in the days to come.

It means giving up something to see souls saved. knowing the Lord is watching. He is watching how we stand under these great trials.

The robes will be getting washed white as snow in the blood, not loving our lives until death.
Down the road not to far in the distant future we will be required to choose, our family or God, our own lives or the lives of our brethren, will we stand for Jesus unto death?

If we had been reaching out all this time like the great women and men of God of days past to see the lost saved, instead of massing fortunes for ourself, we would not have many yet to be saved, there would not be starving people, physically or spiritually around the world, because every
church body would be out in the field reaching out.
You do not see that happen today because there would be no money in the tithe box because the people would all be out in the field telling people about Jesus. And it takes much sacrifice to win souls.

With the love of God in hearts instead of buying new homes and cars and all the latest of "new things", they would be hurting for their brothers and sisters in other lands, and the millions of starving kids around the world.

This is LOVE, this is loving your neighbor as yourself. You ate three meals today, they ate one if they were lucky, the unlucky ones eat whatever they can find even if it be in the garbage cans or the dump.. Some eat leaves to stay alive.

Why is this crises coming to America? Look at the selfish decadence, look at the greed of corrupt governments, big business, and worst of all in some of our own larger ministries and churches. The coveteousness in the church is such a turn off to the world, they want to see JESUS,
YESHUA.
What they want to see is change in their lives, they want to see miracles, they want to see hope in a hopeless world.

What are we teaching those we are to disciple around the world, what kind of example is Yahweh looking to see in us?
Many are teaching Christians that we need to look rich so that people will see all God has done in our lives so people see us prosperous. Is this how we should bring people to Christ, so that they are as coveteous as the rest? Looking on the outside instead of at the heart?
Lord have mercy, what they need to see is change in our lives, love, purity, humility, forgiveness, kindness, mercy, righteousness where as before they saw sin. They need to see God's love in our lives, remembering if He lives in us He will be working through us.
They need to see His love, that He so loved the world that he laid his life down for each and every one of us. they need to see the cross applied to our lives.

If Jesus is living inside of us then He will manifest Himself through us to the world and what THEY WILL SEE IS JESUS, YESHUA. Not money, not possessions!!! They will see His love for the world, wanting to give them a future and a hope.
They will see us lay our life down for one another.
Even to the point of death! What man has ever died for you but Yeshua Jesus, what friend has laid his life down for you but Yeshua, Jesus Christ.
No other, all others that came are all DEAD. Jesus, Yeshua is ALIVE.

I understand how Elijah felt, he had been proclaiming the word to Israel and they had forsaken the Lord's covenant, thrown down the altars, and slain the prophets, he must have been very discouraged when on top of knowing that, he heard that Jezebel wanted to kill him.

Yet even then at his lowest point Yahweh came through, showing Him His love and care and His mighty hand, and so it will be for those who press in and trust the Lord.

Yes, brothers and sisters it is going to get much worse for those who trust in the arm of flesh rather then the arm of the Lord.
There is no turning back, in the coming days we shall be tested to the end of our endurance but the Lord will send His angels to bear us up.
You shall see many fall by your side but do not fear,
trust in the Lord, a thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near thee, there will be pestilence and all manner of evil, there shall no evil befall you, neither shall any plague come nigh your dwelling if you trust in the Lord it shall not come nigh thy dwelling.
The angels will be given charge over you to keep you in all your ways.
Set your eyes upon the author and finisher of your faith. Make the Lord your habitation in the coming days, your shield and your buckler.
For with your very eyes you shall see the reward of the wicked.

Love will be the plumbline.

We shall be judged for how much we have loved, not for how many times we went to church, nor how much we have amassed in this life, or how much we gave to the tithe box, but our heart will be judged by Yahweh God. Will He see Himself in us?

Did you respond to the cries of the hurting, the lost, the addicted who needed hope?
Even the neighbor you never bothered to check up on. We will be forgiven as we have forgiven, He will be merciful if we have been merciful.
If anything was more true it would be the love and the path we are called to follow in the beatitudes, the Lord gave us as this example to live by.

Time is short, and if we are to draw near to the Lord, it is NOW, for soon we shall no longer have the strength and it will be to late if our faith is small.
We need the faith to move mountains and we need it now. We need to know He is near and be directed by His presence, to KNOW that He will never leave nor forsake you, and we are to look to him in all things, and not to man.
Our Messiah will not be on earth, we shall meet him in the air.

It is time to get very serious brothers and sisters, the days that have been prophesied are in our midst, and more to come.

When you see all these things come to pass, look up for your redemption draweth nigh!!

Whatsoever you ye desire when your pray, believe ye receive them, and you shall have them. Mark 11:24




Boundless Love

Beloved Servant
Oct 29 2008 01:05AM


Oh Lord Your love abounds, how can we not recognize it, we look to the circumstances in the world and we see through muddy glasses. We are like little children playing in the mud, splashing around, and we look in Daddy's eyes and we see pure love, with the mud of the world we do not see the gentleness the kindness the grace and mercy and love abounding.

The physical world is very deceitful, as is our heart which is deceitfully wicket. And our Father who is all love, has to discipline us and His discipline is not always pleasant, no chastening for the present seems joyous, but grievous but never the less afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness.

This is a picture the Lord has given me of the body of Christ, they haven't learned how to be the bride in perfect submission.
Kind of like a wild filly, not ready for the reins. running and frolicking, kicking up their heels, and when the owner comes to put on the bridle they back up a step or two not too sure they want that constraint.

But once they learn He loves them and is not going to hurt them, they begin to take steps toward Him, slowly at first, and then when he begins to stroke them, and show them His love, they fall in love with Him. Then when he calls they "come", with only a loving look toward them, they run to him.

We were meant for the Lord, not for ourselves, to no longer live for ourselves but for Him that loved us and died for us.
We were meant to worship him in truth and Spirit, that means with all of our hearts.

Without him our life begins to fall apart. We know when difficulties come we are being chastised for wandering away from His Presence. we know when everything seems to not jell, that is when it is time to put all aside and run to Him.
sometimes distractions draw us away, I see that has to be the case with so many of God's children spending hours on the internet, how can we have quality time with our wonderful lord, if we are hours on the internet. The enemy of our soul knows this and he has created so many distractions, they take us out of the Spirit and away from our beloved.
We must hurry back to our beloved, and adore him and worship him until He tells us all is well and our soul is once more quieted. Listen for what he has for us, His instructions as well as direction.
Being out of His Presence sets us back, so that when storms come we cannot face them.

It is urgent for us to stay attached to the vine, in this hour, so that we can stand when the wind is blowing and beating against our house, it shall not fall because It is built on a solid foundation, on Jesus Christ our rock.
There are storms coming, great storms but as the cattle do in storms they face them headlong, we must face them with the strength and endurance of the Lord, we can only do that full of His oil, full of the Holy Spirit and power.
The Lord is at the helm, he controls the storms of life, so we can trust the One who speaks to the storm,"Peace Be Still".
We can trust in His boundless love, a love that cherishes the beloved, those who cherish him, those who adore him, those who want his life to rein in them.

Wash our faces Lord, get the mud of life off of us, and clean us up put Your blood washed robes on us, call us and we will run to You with our arms outstretched!
Lord with out You we cannot make it, not one day not one hour, Your word gives us life your love gives us light. WE ARE YOURS.
We see You Lord, we see Your love Lord, we see Your miracles Lord, we want more of You Lord, wrap us in Your Presence, gathers us under Your wings.
Remove what hinders us from running to Your side, from living in Your Presence. Oh the freedom in Your Presence when you flow through us, miracles happen, joy comes, souls see You Lord, they see You in our face. I love You Lord.
Thank You Lord, thank You for the miracle of life Lord, thank You for the miracle of seeing You, of Knowing You the creator of the universe, thank You for breathing in me, giving me life in my dead body, my dead soul, thank you for resurrection life, and thank You for coming in Lord. thank You for being My Lord as well as my Savior, thank You for saving me from self.







 
I Will Bare You On Eagles Wings
Beloved Servant
Oct 19 2008 09:41PM


HE WILL BARE YOU ON EAGLES WINGS
Beloved Servant-sis shanna
10/19/2008
 
In recent months I have seen more of the image of the anti christ  being formed then I have my whole life.
 
Deception abounds, people are being mesmerized by charismatic figures, even some who call themselves Christians.
They do not understand the spiritual undercurrents, the principalities and powers, that are being called into play to bring about their devised end, and their wicked plans.
 
What amazes me is that watchmen have declared this for many years now to no avail, it is like the ostrich with his perverbial head in the sand, much of the church  has it's head in the everywhere but on Christ and will not look up, because they are in denial..
 
If you say there are spirits moving characters like a chess game into place just as prophesied they would think you are nuts.  They are being drawn into satans hands, to believe the lie. 
We, this country and the world are heading into the NWO the New World Order. Headed by the coming one, the anti Christ.
 
All the pawns are in place, the global money crisis came about to bring us right into the hands of those who have been in the planning stage of the new world order and the one world religion. The stage is set.   The die is cast, and there is no turning back.
 
The Lord is calling His Remnant to go back into the wilderness, all  who are born of His Spirit, true believers are covered in the blood, and the death angel will passover  when he see's the blood covering them and when God brings judgments to this unrepentant world, He shall hide his remnant under His wings. 
They are His, and they love and are devoted to the Lord.

Exo 19:4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.

Some will ask why God would do such a thing. 

Why would he choose only a remnant?   When he sent His prophets to warn of what was coming and told His people to prepare, only the few who went into the wilderness and allowed the Lord to test them, would deny self, while the rest of the body went on enjoying the things of the world, mocking the word the Lord gave to the prophets to give them to prepare.

They said," preach to me smooth words, I don't want to hear of judgments, I want to hear that no matter what I do God will forgive me, so pardon me, while I live MY LIFE".

In the old testament it was the same thing, the people loved their sins more then God, they loved their idols and their own ways.

So God chose a remnant because the people were hard headed, and stiff necked, and so it is today, even under the new covenant. God has not changed and neither has the world or His people.

So God has a remnant that have loved and trusted in Him and consecrated themselves to him, who have allowed the trials and testing, now they will be ready to follow Him where ever He goes.

God is calling some to physically "go into the wilderness to leave the city, and others He may have them to hide themselves in Him, but in either case they are to get out of Egypt before He brings about the judgments on the world.

 Those who  KNOW Him, he will speak into our hearts and tell us what He would have us to do, what he would have each of us do in our own situation or in His plan for our lives, we must trust only in him. Not our Pastor not our family or our friends but Jesus only.  He is our God.  If we cannot do that we need to go back to the word of God and press in.

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her,mypeople, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

This is not a time for fear, but of love, for LOVE cast out all fear.  I know so many are fearful of what is comming, they are fearful to see their finances crumble in the market, worry how they can pay their bills and feed their families, all in the same boat not knowing where to turn, so they cry out for a leader like they did with King Saul, so God gave them what they wanted a leader, and it was not  what they wanted or expected.

The people are even now crying out for a leader because they do not want God to rule over them, to decide what they can do and not do.  They want to have the right to sacrifice their children to Molech, and to do abominable things, and to make laws so they can do as they choose.  "We want our own choice", they are saying. So God will give them their choice and at the same time it will be His choice, and what will come they will not wish for but it will be too late.  They made their choice, they cried out for a leader that would be pleasing to their flesh.

Yes, prayer could change the direction we are heading or it could very well be too late, we all have been warned, and so many have shut their ears to the truth.  Yet God is a merciful God, and only He knows when He will withdraw His grace.

  He has revealed it to His prophets, they have warned and they have given His words and none would hear.

We will see things soon we never thought would happen in this country, what we are being told is a lie and much deception abounds, and we are seeing someone given power that will change this nation and it will be according to prophecy.

The Lord is allowing the blindness to occur, it is as if they do not see truth because they refused to listen.

2Th 2:10 And with all deceivablenessof unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received nottheloveofthetruth, that they might be saved.

I have never seen so many eyes blinded to deception as we are seeing now.  I am seeing the hand writing on the wall. This country has been found wanting.

What is happening has been prophesied from ancient time, and yet though prophets have been speaking of this time for years now, it has gone unbelieved, the hands would quickly go to the ears as they didn't want to hear the truth as they want to live in their imaginary world not having to account for their sins, chasing after their dreams of wealth and sucess.

Beloved, faith worketh by loveand perfect love cast out all fear.  Either we can trust God who is our source or we shall be fearful, because we cannot trust our jobs, we cannot trust the banks or the government to save us. Only the Lord God who is our provider. Jehovah Jireh.

I had a very difficult time this week as I am being tested in this very area, my hours of work were cut drastically and other test that indicated the Lord was looking to see if I would absolutely trust him, and in the physical it looks hopeless, but in the Spirit, I know God's word is true and he will provide for His own when we absolutely trust Him.

There will be death and disease everywhere we look, wars and rumors of wars, but the end is not yet.  This is the test that shall come upon the whole world.  Who will we choose? We will be forced to make that choice. Are we true believers of Yeshua or are we mouth professors. Will we follow after the crowd, and our own flesh, or the living God.

We must hope in Him, we must put our absolute trust in him for He loves those who love him.  And His promises shall never fail.

The time is coming when we will be asked to stand for what we believe, and we must ask ourselves if we are willing to give up our life for Christ as He gave up His life for us.

This country puts its trust in the government to protect us, but God can and will allow this country to go through judgements and the church is to be judged first.  So wisdom says to put your trust in God, not the arm of flesh. No other way but to trust and obey.

I think about the Christians in India and other third world countries, and how we are hated by those who take things in their own hands instead of doing things Jesus Christ way.  They hate us because God answers our prayers, and he blesses us.  They look at Christians  in America with such contempt for one thing many are not behaving in such a way that glorifies God, and they think we are not true believers, so they will come and test us, are you ready?

We are hated by the liberal community and by others who have their own agendas because we as true Christians who will not bow down to their gods.

I see a very dark cloud over this nation, one of darkness and destruction, but at the same time I see God with such love for His own, he embraces and covers and hides us in his pavillion.

Just as Meschach, Abendego, and Shadrach were thrown into the fire and came out untouched so will we be if we hold onto our faith. Because he loves us with an everlasting love, and as we trust him and give everything to him in perfect trust, He will reveal himself as our beloved, our hearts must be knit to his in this hour and loving those whom we come in contact, sharing His love.

What better then to speak about His love to those who have never known Him.  To testify of His love, how little fear will we have when we speak of His glory and all he has done in our life.

What are houses, possessions, and money when we have the love of the Creator of the Universe and the one who loved us so much He laid down His life for us, shed His life's blood to redeem us, oh what love.

Are we here to live for ourselves or are we here to lift and glorify Christ in the world. 

  Beloved begin to proclaim Christ love for us and all he has done for us to a hurting world.  Show them Our Lords faithfulness. 

 You will never see His faithfulness until you absolutely TRUST HIM.

If we cannot do this how can we call ourselves His.  It all comes down to, "are we living for self or are we living for Him?"

In my case it isn't just about me, but it matters to me that those who God has used me to touch, are also cared for so that they can testify of His love and faithfulness, so I will trust him for them as well.

I love God so much, and I have a great love for the body of Christ, to see you seeking Him and knowing that  the truth shall set you free. And to know Him and to hear His voice so that you too can be directed by Him. Not turning to the right or left, but only the way He has chosen for you.

 The Lord will lead you and guide you as to where He would have you to be in this time, when He calls you out of Babylon.

You will hear His voice and must obey him, and he will guide you just as He guided the children of Israel,and fed them manna,  gave them to drink out of a rock. Their shoes never wore out, they lacked nothing and every need was cared for by Yahweh.

For some He will call you from within, to meet Him in that secret place and to live there with Him,  trusting Him for all your needs, others He may take you to a secluded area with your family taking only what He tells you, and others He will keep where they are and use them to help others, but He will hide you until the indignation be past.  Leaving Babylon is leaving our love for the world and placing it all on Jesus.

He is faithful! Do not fear, do not trust in what you see with your eyes but trust what you do not see, for God is there bringing what you need into fruition.

HE WILL BARE YOU ON EAGLES WINGS.



For Such A Time As This
Beloved Servant
Sep 30 2008 01:33AM


We are a chosen generation, we have been chosen for such a time as this.
 
We have been chosen to live out our lives in the end times, to be a part of God's glory that shall fill the earth.
 
Everything unfolding has been prophesied, though we do not always see a prophecy fullfilled when we think it will be or when it was prophesied, but God's word does not return void.
 
Now is a time to draw near to the Lord, while He draws near to you.  He will be our strength during the time coming upon us, and He is now our strength.
 
It is only when we do not give Him everything to carry that we find ourselves without strength.
For He is our strength in any situation.
 
I see America in serious trouble, we watch as prophecy is fulfilled daily right before our eyes, we have seen great apostasy, and deception, and at the same time, the church is being judged.  Pastors falling by the wayside, leaders in sexual sin, false teaching abounding, the body of Christ leaving the church in droves.  We are the church, but so many are leaving organized religion, they are tired of the the false teachings and heresy being taught from many pulpits, they are meeting in homes and even cyber church seeking fellowship with like minded believers.
 
Rightly so, this is what the new testament in the book of Hebrews was speaking about, to not forsake the assembling. It was needed then as it is greatly needed now.  But it is fellowship that can occur anywhere.  Not where we meet. But that we MEET.
Because many saints are  not meeting together and praying for one another, as times grow worse and worse they will not have the strength to stand, and will fall away.
Even more important we need our God. We need to cling to him, though we need the fellowship to encourage and pray for one another, we need to hear from God, and know when He is directing us.  If we do not have these things in place we will not be able to stand on our own. And God inhabits our praise!  So Praise Him especially in troubles.
 
As our nation gets weaker, through natural disasters, and the money crises and stock market crash, housing crises, food crises, none shall help us. Everything shall wax worse and worse.   Attempts by man shall fail, it is only God that can save us.
We shall fall as Babylon fell, we will be attacked from within and from without. We shall not be able to rise from the ashes and the world will watch as our nation burns.
Only the Lord can change the day or the hour of His appointed time.
 
Many do not want to hear the truth, so as I speak forth this word you close your ears and eyes, you think I am speaking negative word because this is what you have been taught, but what you have feared is coming upon you.
 
It is not a time to fear, but to trust in the name of the Lord, He is holy and true to His word, and He has promised to be our fortress and strong tower and as we dwell in the secret place He will keep us in the shelter of His wings.
We must abide in His word and let Him speak into our hearts in this time, not the media, not the progosticators of wall street but reading the word of God, the good news, that He Jesus Christ is our hope.
 
 We cannot trust in the arm of the flesh but only in the living God.

We will be tested, and we are now in that test, where is our trust, who is our trust in? It cannot be in the government it cannot be in our neighbors and friends nor husband and wife, it must be in the LIVING GOD.
 
Where will we put our faith? Will we be like Peter and swear that we will stand with the Lord no matter what comes?  And when the time comes will we stand, or will we deny.

Luk 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

 I see the people crying out for someone to help, and then shall the anti christ come and be welcomed.  Because they refused to repent, they refused to turn to the Lord.
Of course he will not announce himself as such, but he will be known by everyone as their savior.  He will do miracles and he will do everything Jesus Christ did on earth so the people will presume it is he, but this is the great deception that the people are being prepared for at this time.  Most didn't want Jesus Christ to be Lord, so now they have chosen a savior a leader much like King Saul, because they do not want God to rule over them, they want to do as they choose.  And this leader will be an incarnation of Lucifer, the fallen angel.  H will rise to power.  Look up for your redemption draweth nigh.
 
The new age has carefully been planned, and is now everywhere on the earth but most do not  have any idea that this is happening around them, it is all part of the deception coming.  It has infliltrated the teachings in the church, so many Christians will not see the deception and will follow the anti christ, who  will be brought in by the new age paradigm shift.  In which they have been working to change the consciousness of the world to be a one world government and one world religion. 
This shift is in the thinking of man, they have brought in mediation, and other tools to teach the mind to be receptive to their mindset.
 Most of the liberals have already shifted to this consciousness, but they are totally unaware this is happening in their minds.
 
We  have been  warned by so many but it is when we do not walk in the Spirit that we become unaware of these deceptions, and yet
many  Christians are influenced through the spirit by angels of light.
 
But it will be those who trust in God that shall prevail.  The Lord has made promises to His church, we read the warnings and promises in Revelations, and we see that He will keep those who have trusted Him, who have stood in the midst of the trials.

Rev 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

This is the hour we have been called, we are the John the Baptist coming out of the wilderness, we have been prepared for such a time as this.  We do not come out in fancy cars or clothes, we have died or are dying to self and our life is now His.  We are accepted in the beloved,  we are new creatures in Christ Jesus, we no longer live but Christ lives in us.

We know we are accepted in the beloved and that he loves us so much, because we are His love slaves.

We are a peculiar people, and do not believe we are more special than others, but we have said YES to Jesus and NO to the world.  It is a choice we have made, and we are saying YES,.  We shall obey you.

We are called to prepare the way of the Lord, to cry out to the church and to the world to repent, the Lord is near, He wants a bride without spot or wrinkle. We cannot listen or allow our ears to be tickled by smooth words, we need to hear a word that pricks our heart by the Holy Spirit, that causes us to see ourselves the way we really are, so that we can walk in holiness before Him.

Those who obey Him, and who have been preparing their hearts, and not bent their knee to Baal, are His called in this hour.  It is Him we worship, it is Him we seek after, it is Him that to whom we have given over our life.

We are handmaidens and sons and daughters of Christ, we have thrown away our idols, and distractions to serve and worship the living God.

We know Him and we know each other, He will lead us, He will give us His orders, he will reign, He is the glory and the lifter of our heads.

HAVE NO FEAR.

Though all may fall around us, we trust in the name of our Lord, our time will come and His light shall shine upon us and around us.

He shall call us to  to do great exploits, come let us exalt His holy name, worthy is the lamb that was slain.

We are  in the hour of trial, and we have been called for such a time as this.

Who Is Greatest In The Kingdom
Beloved Servant
Sep 7 2008 07:25PM


Mat 18:1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

Mat 18:2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

Mat 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Mat 18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

 

The disciples came to Jesus and wanted to know who was the greatest in the kingdom, they wanted to have the best seat in the house, the best seat next to the Lord, they wanted to be great in the kingdom.

It is not much different today, as it seems as if Christians are vying for the best position, the need to be well known, to make the most money, to have their teachings be acclaimed, to have the biggest church and ministry, to sell the most books and CD's to have the biggest conferences, hanging out with the in crowd, on and on.

 And  many look down their noses at those who choose to walk in humility and meekness, to be as little children in the kingdom, to be a nobody, to not be thought of highly.  It has become a competition in the body of Christ.

It has been a prayer of mine for a long time to be as a little child in God's kingdom, to be humble, unpretentious, teachable,dependant on the Father, trusting, and loving as he is loving.

  Recognizing I am weak, that I am nothing with out the Lord, that what ever is done through me is really done through me, and nothing I can say with pride, I did that myself. Because it is all the Lord and none of me.

I see this as a prerequisite to being Remnant people, we can say we are Remnant and still set up ourselves to be something we are not, because everything done is to give God glory,not do think of ourselves highly, not to elevate ourselves in the world or among other Christians.

I believe that to be an overcomer we must first be as little children, humble and unpretentious, not trying to be something we are  not, thinking of ourselves more highly.  This is part of being an overcomer. it isn't just about overcoming sin, and the devil, it is about the attitude of the heart. This is what the Lord looks on. It isn't a  matter of what others think of us, but what God thinks of us.

Isn't that what it is all about? Being the same with everyone.

True greatness is  a matter of the inner life, the inner attitude, it is a humble spirit and a pure  heart, it is often expressed in those who have a great love for Christ, in those who truly serve others in sincere humility.  And it is being the least important in the kingdom, it is being insignificant in the kingdom.

That really rubs many the wrong way. But greatness is not position, leadership or power, or who has the most important office in the church, the most education, degrees or fame, It isn't about recognition, accomplishments or success.

 Success is not measured by how much money we make or what we have achieved, or what we know, it is about what God has achieved through those who submit willingly to His will.  It is about knowing Him, and who and what His character is like so that we can emulate Him.

  It is the surrendered heart he looks on.  The willing vessel that will give Him the glory.

It is not what we do for God but what is in our hearts, what we are, in spirit before him.

To be great is to be great in love, kindness, humility, meekness, goodness, faith, godly character, wisdom, patience and self control.

Greatness in our love for the Lord and for His people, it means love for the least of them, it means not thinking of ourselves more highly.

I find Heidi Baker a good example of greatness in these things, and even Sarah Palin the vice presidential running mate. I see her as so unpretentious and humble, she doesn't try to be somebody, she is the same with everyone that I can see, she is simple and leaves everything to the will of the Father.

A great leader is one who submits to the will of the Father and is consecrated to Him and has a great love for Him that everyone can see.

Many in the world will never read the bible, the only bible they will ever read, will be your life, so we need to live it in such a way to glorify God, for people to give Him praise for who He is, and for what he has done in our life.

People need to see God's spoken word lived out in our lives. It is all about being in his image, it is not about us, but about him, it is about living in a kingdom glass house. When they see our lives it is to see His life and the words He has spoken.

It is not about drawing a following, it is not about people saying great things about us, it is about pointing the way to Jesus.

Many say that they are not called to evangelize and bring souls to Christ. I disagree with that but if they choose not to physically go out to bring Christ to others, then they must live in such a way that if people do not hear about Jesus from their lips, they will see Him lived in their life.

If I was an unbeliever what would I see viewing Christianity today?

I see no difference in Christians and non Christians, they dress the same, they act the same, and  there are very few that wear Jesus, wear the word of God before the world.

Pride is the hallmark of Christianity, rather then having being converted as little children and leaving pride behind we see it so prevalent in the body of Christ.

Children are so simple, and uncomplicated, they will play with a rich persons child as easily as a child in the street and won't think a thing about it unless their parents teach them different.

They are not self focused, or self conscious, they will play and even act foolish and not be at all concerned about how they look to anyone.  We should be more concerned with how God see's us daily then how others see us.

Children are so trusting that is why they are often  the target of satan, and why Jesus says.

Mat 18:5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

Mat 18:6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

I notice how people treat their children, they either spoil them or treat them as less then themselves,  often is the case with many Christians that see themselves as something greater then others.

Pride is a silver thread among those who are deceived. To show them where they are in error or that they are deceived  brings much anger, vile words and curses, almost seemingly coming from the mouth of satan.

We must examine ourselves to see if there is pride in our hearts. It is such a wicked sin, yet we so often only see it in others not in ourselves.

Pride is so opposite of being as little children, so in opposition to Jesus Christ very nature.

The sooner we can die to our own self consciousness and self interest and just love people as Jesus Christ does, the sooner we will exhibit humility.  The sooner we can be childlike.

This is why it is said we must just "be" not "do". It is a matter of just "being" who we are,  not trying to be something, or doing things to be noticed.

Not being self focused but God focused, God aware, just "being" in his Presence, no pretension of who we are but a child of God, a CHILD of God.

We are not in this world to be known or to have a great name or following, or to have all this worlds goods.

 We have but one task and that is to become like Christ, to be as a little child humble and meek, and to bring Him to others so they can also be like Christ.

We are given gifts to share with the body, to minister to those who need encouragement or to speak life into them, or bring joy into their experience but it doesn't make one better then another or greater then another.

We need to see everything as from God, and not from us, then we would have no reason to think of ourselves so highly.

Everything does come from God when we see it that way, as a little child we can see the joy of the morning, a new day of discovery, we can see life from a new perspective, we can see how great the Father is, and how much love He has for His creation.

We can see His handiwork as a masterpiece and just be excited at the way He has painted our lives and all of creation around us.

This is how children see it. Their little feet hit the floor upon rising from their beds and they are excited to meet the day. they love to see how things are made, they love adventure, they are so trusting of the Father they have no fear of evil.

They are in awe at everything new in their experience, they laugh and run for the thrill of running, they see everything as greater then themselves.  They love to play in water, to climb trees and be way up there, to seek out caves and hiding places, it is sense of awe,discovery and curiosity that keeps them content.

This is being unpretentious and enjoying all that the Father has given us, loving everyone, not being partial, whether rich or poor or yellow black or white, girl or boy.

Somehow as Christians we have lost our childhood instead of entering in as children. We have become stuffy, and self focused, which is just like the world, who expects everything to revolve around them and for them.

As little children we see the world in a whole new way, we have eyes to see and ears to hear, we see God in a whole new way, we can see His great love for us and can see our purpose and revival in the heart of a child.

Yes, revival will come when we enter into the kingdom as little children. When we stop focusing on ourselves and our own little world, on our things, on our needs, and begin to focus on God, and "BEING" the gospel life,seeing in a new way God and His creation, and how much he loves us, and being thankful for every little thing, just loving Him and appreciating Him for who he is.

Mat 18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.


Who Is Watching Over The Sheepfold?
Sis shanna
08/22/08

As a Watchman in the house of God my concern is the body of Christ, I see so many Christians flailing, crying out for help and for prayer on many groups on the internet. So many not knowing where to turn, many are so fleshly it amazes me, never thinking to turn everything over to the Lord, and then actually doing it..

Somewhere as ministers of God we are failing our brothers and sisters. They should be getting fellowship and prayer and teaching on how to live and walk in the Spirit in their congregations, but instead are flocking by the thousands to social groups.
For those who are out of church it is a good thing,because they can find like minded believers to fellowship and pray with.
But it is also a huge time stealer. Satan is big on sending things to steal our time from the Lord.

My concern is for the spiritual health of the body, if they are not watched over the thief comes to kill steal and destroy, when the wolf comes the hireling runs and someone has to watch over our Lords flock

This was a concern of the leaders in the early church. They were very concerned that the the flock was being led astray by false teachers.

I know many of us who truly love the body have been called heresey hunters and many other unkind names because we have warned the body of the wolves drawing the flock of our Lord away with false teachings.  I realize there are many who do not always do it in love, but are harsh, and it actually cuaes those who are in deception to feel they are being persecuted by the legalist.
But as well known leaders begin to see error they people listen and take notice.

Look below at what some of the early Father said about these subverters.
So when someone calls you a heresey hunter or says you are of the old covenant, and into the letter of the law, then show him these writings by the early Fathers.
The spirit of love was very evident in the early church spirit and the Apostles were taught by revelation either by Jesus Himself by Paul who was given direct revelation.
They were very concerned about those who were deceiving the flock of God.

Being concerned that others are being deceived is not unloving, in fact it is very loving. Because you are caring for their souls and their best interest, putting theirs before your own. It isn't easy to stand for truth, because it makes people angry if it is in regards to something they believe.  It is far from judging the people, this needs to be understood, you do need to look for fruit as it is in the word. Gal 5:22
 And we do judge doctrines by the word of God, we do look to see if that persons life is linning up with what he or she says. DO THEY CRY OUT AGAINST SIN?  ARE THEY LEADING  BODY INTO HOLINESS?  DO THEY TEACH THAT THE ORIGINAL WRITINGS OF THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT ARE FULLY INSPIRED BY GOD?
TEST INTEGRITY WITH RESPECT FOR THE LORD'S MONEY. Do they refuse to take large sums for themselves?.
Many false teachers go undetected until the Lord exposes them, and He does use otehers to do so.
 
If you do not do this, you can easily be deceived. They need to be tested.
This was posted on a blog by Bereans 123
“Let’s see what the early church father Polycarp who was taught and fellowshipped with the Apostles, taught by St. John and fellowshipped with other disciples of the Lord who had seen the Lord. Bishop of Smyrna, martyred for his faith.
“Himself has commanded us, and as the apostles who preached the Gospel unto us, and the prophets who proclaimed beforehand the coming of the Lord [have alike taught us]. Let us be zealous in the pursuit of that which is good, keeping ourselves from causes of offence, from false brethren, and from those who in hypocrisy bear the name of the Lord, and draw away vain men into error. Whosoever perverts the oracles of the Lord to his own lusts, he is the first-born of Satan. Wherefore, forsaking the vanity of many, and their false doctrines, let us return to the word which has been handed down to us from the beginning; “watching unto prayer,” and persevering in fasting; beseeching in our supplications the all-seeing God “not to lead us into temptation,”

While Ignatius said (Bishop of Antioch, martyred for his faith):

He and Polycarp were fellow-disciples under St. John.

“Beware of false teachers.

For some are in the habit of carrying about the name [of Jesus Christ] in wicked guile, while yet they practice things unworthy of God, whom ye must flee as ye would wild beasts. For they are ravening dogs, who bite secretly, against whom ye must be on your guard, in as much as they are men who can scarcely be cured. There is one Physician who is possessed both of flesh and spirit; both made and not made; God existing in flesh; true life in death; both of Mary and of God; first passable and then impassible even Jesus Christ our Lord.

For “the righteous man who avoids them is saved for ever; but the destruction of the ungodly is sudden, and a subject of rejoicing.” For “they are dumb dogs, that cannot bark,” raving mad, and biting secretly, against whom ye must be on your guard, since they labor under an incurable disease. But our Physician is the only true God, the unbegotten and unapproachable, the Lord of all, the Father and Begetter of the only-begotten Son.

We have also as a Physician the Lord our God, Jesus the Christ, the only-begotten Son and Word, before time began, but who afterwards became also man, of Mary the virgin. For “the Word was made flesh.” Being incorporeal, He was in the body; being impassible, He was in a passable body; being immortal, He was in a mortal body; being life, He became subject to corruption, that He might free our souls from death and corruption, and heal them, and might restore them to health, when they were diseased with ungodliness and wicked lusts.

Nevertheless, I have heard of some who have passed in among you, holding the wicked doctrine of the strange and evil spirit; to whom ye did not allow entrance to sow their tares, but stopped your ears that ye might not receive that error which was proclaimed by them, as being persuaded that that spirit which deceives the people does not speak the things of Christ, but his own, for he is a lying spirit. But the Holy Spirit does not speak His own things, but those of Christ, and that not from himself, but from the Lord; even as the Lord also announced to us the things that He received from the Father. For, says He, “the word which ye hear is not Mine, but the Father’s, who sent Me.” And says He of the Holy Spirit, “He shall not speak of Himself, but whatsoever things He shall hear from Me.” And He says of Himself to the Father, “I have,” says He, “glorified Thee upon the earth; I have finished the work which, Thou gavest Me; I have manifested Thy name to men.” And of the Holy Ghost, “He shall glorify Me, for He receives of Mine.”

But the spirit of deceit preaches himself, and speaks his own things, for he seeks to please himself. He glorifies himself, for he is full of arrogance. He is lying, fraudulent, soothing, flattering, treacherous, rhapsodically, trifling, inharmonious, verbose, sordid, and timorous. From his power Jesus Christ will deliver you, who has founded you upon the rock, as being chosen stones, well fitted for the divine edifice of the Father, and who are raised up on high by Christ, who was crucified for you, making use of the Holy Spirit as a rope, and being borne up by faith, while exalted by love from earth to heaven, walking in company with those that are undefiled.

For, says [the Scripture], “Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord.” Now the way is unerring, namely, Jesus Christ. For, says He, “I am the way and the life.” And this way leads to the Father. For “no man,” says He, “cometh to the Father but by Me.” Blessed, then, are ye who are God-bearers, spirit-bearers, temple-bearers, bearers of holiness, adorned in all respects with the commandments of Jesus Christ, being “a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people,” on whose account I rejoice exceedingly, and have had the privilege, by this Epistle, of conversing with “the saints which are at Ephesus, the faithful in Christ Jesus.” I rejoice, therefore, over you, that ye do not give heed to vanity, and love nothing according to the flesh…

Do not err, my brethren. Those that corrupt families shall not inherit the kingdom of God. If, then, those who do this as respects the flesh have suffered death, how much more shall this be the case with anyone who corrupts by wicked doctrine the faith of God, for which Jesus Christ was crucified! Such an one becoming defiled [in this way], shall go away into everlasting fire, and so shall every one that hearkens unto him.

Do not err, my brethren. Those that corrupt families shall not inherit the kingdom of God. And if those that corrupt mere human families are condemned to death, how much more shall those suffer everlasting punishment who endeavor to corrupt the Church of Christ, for which the Lord Jesus, the only-begotten Son of God, endured the cross, and submitted to death! Whosoever, “being waxen fat,” and “become gross,” sets at nought His doctrine, shall go into hell.

In like manner, every one that has received from God the power of distinguishing, and yet follows an unskillful shepherd, and receives a false opinion for the truth, shall be punished. “What communion hath light with darkness? or Christ with Belial? Or what portion hath he that believeth with an infidel? or the temple of God with idols?” And in like manner say I, what communion hath truth with falsehood? or righteousness with unrighteousness? or true doctrine with that which is false?”


We are hearing every day of another fraud in the body of Christ, God is revealing them, nothing shall be hid but all be manifested.It seems as if it is one right after another.


Mar 4:22 For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.

My greatest concern my brothers and sisters are all the young people who seemed so far from coming to Christ and now are so hungry, what will happen to them when they learn of these frauds in the body of Christ.

Not withstanding how it looks to the world, who see's us as a bunch of whackos, a bunch of crazies who need a shrink..
They see all the greed and money changers in the church and are so turned off by all these antics.

Our only hope is in the True Word of God, and Christians who will stand and be counted for the truth.
Yes we need intimacy with the Lord, we need to know Him and His word, we need His Presence, and we need to be revived of lukewarmness, we need eyes salve for our eyes. We need to buy gold tried in the fire, but we do not need the false teachings that have been stripping the body of all truth.

WE NEED DISCERNMENT!!!! We need eyes to see and ears to hear, we need to teach the body of Christ how to live by the bible, not psychology, not the social gospel.
It is so rampant in the church, the body doesn't even realize what they are being taught. This is truly deception..

Let us minister to the needs of the body, what is it they are not getting from the pulpit, how can we teach them so that they can grow and be grown up birds that can eventually fly out of their nest?


Son 2:10  My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.

My Beloved called me to come away with Him to His chamber, to that secret place, to come and learn of His love, to know Him Intimately.
He spoke clearly to me as I read this verse, and I heard calling me away all day and night. I kept hearing "Come away."

He then begin to reveal things to me, about His love, and how He jealously yearns for me to desire Him above all things.  He began to show me how He wants more then for us to just talk about Him, and to pray to Him as if he was in some far distant place.  He wanted me to know that He is right there with me, and when I worship Him in truth and in Spirit it draws Him to me.
But that He is nearer then our breath, He wants us to come to him, seek Him, and he will come to us.

Worship brings us to that place of intimacy with Him, he wants us to now Him in this way, he has always wanted us to enjoy Him in this manner, not just as an angry God of wrath that brings judgment to those who disobey and choose to worship idols
 He will be this as well to those who spurn His love and refuse to obey Him.

When we choose to KNOW HIM and WORSHIP HIM, LOVE HIM, he reveals His fullness, His great love.
He is beautiful, and He loves us so much.  he will woo us to himself with love, he will call us, "Come Away With Me", but when we ignore Him, as if we cannot be bothered He stands back and watches us yearning for us to seek him.

The more you know our beautiful God, and Love Him, the more you will desire to honor Him, to obey Him.
he wants us to burn for Him to have a passion for him to long for His very closeness, just as in bridal love.

Sin is really our lack of love for Him, because He has said if you love Me, obey my commandments and His commandments are not grievous.. so if we continue to sin in any way it shows that we do not really love Him with all of our heart, mind and strength.

The Lord has said if you seek Me, you shall find me. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
 I love them that love me; And those that seek me diligently shall find me. 
He said, " I am as close as your heart".
When we talk about Him religiously as a far off God, that shows our lack of relationship with Him, it lacks intimacy.
He is our bridegroom, and He wants the same intimacy  we have with our spouse or loved ones.  Yet not one that fades with time, but one that is like our first love with our spouse.  Like we had with the Lord in the beginning.
Our hearts burning with love for Him, longing to spend time with Him, our hearts were like a flame of fire.

But just as our hearts burned with love for our spouse, we found that over time, we were distracted with other things, we got busy, things became hum drum and we lose that longing, that flame that burned for one another.  We may have learned that we never really knew this person before we were married, truly knew the heart. Sometimes love blinds one to truly knowing a person, but as time goes on if that relationship was not developed in intimacy that fire will burn out.  And you do not want to listen to the other person, you shut your ears to what they are saying.
This happens because you didn't make this person your one true love, you didn't make this person your very best friend. You took your focus off that person and you drifted away.
This is exactly the way it often is with our bridegroom Jesus.

We can never be fully pleasing to our Lord, until we have true bridal love with Him, of course I am not talking about physical love but the love from the heart, that longing, that deep fire that burns for our loved one.

As long as we keep Him at a distance we will never be completely free of  the stain of sin, he wants to burn off all of our shackles of sin.
Because it is our love for him with all of our hearts mind and strength that causes us to want to please Him, we want to continue to receive the great love He gives us when we are in the bridal chamber, we do not want to do anything to lose that.  We would do nothing to hurt Him or bring shame to His name.
Everything we do for Him in service should be from this fiery love we have for Him. this is the place he wans us to be.

The Lord has said to love Him with all of our heart, and yet we often proclaim  our love for him but it is only with our lips and not with the heart.  Isa 29:13  And the Lord said, For as much as this people draw nigh unto me, and with their mouth and with their lips to honor me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment of men which hath been taught them;
This is how it is sometimes with those we love, after awhile it seems that they speak to us with words of love but their heart is far from us, it makes us feel as though they really do not love us, that they are really mouthing the words.
True love comes from the heart of hearts, it is a love that nothing can quench true love. For love is strong as death; Jealousy is cruel as Sheol; The flashes thereof are flashes of fire, A very flame of Jehovah.
Son 8:7  Many waters cannot quench love, Neither can floods drown it: If a man would give all the substance of his house for love, He would utterly be contemned.
This is the kind of love we must have for the Lord, and what he longs for us to have.

We  learn to love others through His love for us, as we give ourselves over to Him in love, He begins to show us how to love others, by loving them through us. we cannot do this until our heart is given over to Him in intimacy, when you are so smitten with Him you do not want to leave His Presence for even 5 minutes.  You forget all about yourself in that time alone with Him, he is all there is for eternity.  Endless love.
Your focus is on Him alone, this is how He wants us to live daily.
 My beloved is mine, and I am his: He feedeth his flock among the lilies.

He is our beloved and He wants to teach us about love, and He wants us to KNOW HIM.

The children of Israel didn't want to hear God, they didn't want Him to come near, they were so afraid of Him, they asked Moses and other vessels to speak for Him, this is the same as it is today. the people do not to want to hear God for themselves but listen to their Pastor who may or may not have heard from God, or they listen to a prophet, or some other man of God rather then   listen to  hear what God has to say to them personally through the word or through the Spirit.
The Israelites feared God because of their sins, but they never realize how merciful and compassionate our beautiful God was and is.
They never learned how much they were loved.  They are His beloved.  We are His beloved.

What would happen in our own marriage, if we continued to reject our spouse, putting other things and people before our spouse?
Doing what we felt like doing, irregardless of them or their desires, doing what is right in our own eyes. Refusing to listen?

Would not your mate be angry when no matter what is done or said, no change occurs, would not that spouse maybe even talk about the "D" word?  Our Lord is so long suffering and full of mercy but what is it going to take to truly have a covenant marriage? It will take abandoned  unrequited love.
Commitment to one another, letting nothing interfere with that covenant marriage.
It is the same with the Lord he wants our full attention, he wants our commitment to him.  He wants our love and our love alone. Not doubled minded.
Most of all he wants us to know His love, to Know Him as He truly is.

Now you see little sheep playing, all day, they don't seem to be paying attention to what is going around them or what they are eating, and one day, when they least expect it the wolf comes and catches them off guard. And the little lambs becomes lunch meat.

Where are the Shepherds in the church, where are they leading the sheep, are they leading them, to streams of water and not watching over them? Is it pure water or is it a mixture, has the animals walked in it and muddied it, so that the sheep cannot drink of the pure water sent from above.

The water from the Lord is pure, it is not mixed or contaminated, it is sweet just like the wisdom from above.
Jas 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

Jas 3:15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

We need watchmen to watch over the sheep until the Great Shepherd returns. I love the sheep and though most real sheep are dumb, they know their masters voice. WE all do dumb things but time is short it is time to get serious brothers and sisters, in order to be ready for the Lord when He comes we need to be in His image,and so we need to see Him as He is, so we can know how he wants us to be.
And to see Him as He is, we need to spend quality time in His Presence. And we need to bathe in His word.
Let us return to the truth of the word. Let us watch over our brothers and sisters, we are our brothers keeper.

Crying In The Wilderness

A Voice Crying In The Wilderness
Beloved Shoshanna
Sept 9 2007 08:13PM


Brothers and sisters,
 
I have known for over 20 years that I was called to be a watchman in the house of God. It is a commandment more then anything, it doesn't make me more special, I know that many more are by far more gifted because they are more diligent in pursuing God.
 
I remember so clearly when I got saved that the Lord began to show me Rhema words, He began to show me what was to happen in the church in the future, and when I began attending churches I saw the things that were wrong, the religious spirit, the false teachings, the control, the love of money, the sin in the church, and Sunday church goers that lived like the world the rest of the 6 days a week.
But at this time, He was my first love, and then I began to allow other things gradually take His place over the years, as I am sure many of you may have done.
 
I saw that the people were not changing, and I wondered why. I knew that the word is powerful, and can change anyone that wants to be changed.  It isn't all about being on the road to heaven it is about changed lives, about living for Him and being true disciples not just church goers, that fill the pews and the coffers so the Pastor can live well.

Heb 4:12 For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart.

I love Jesus Christ with all my heart, and I believe His word and He speaks to me through it.  But I see how so many churches do not allow the Spirit to come in, so the people sit under a word from the intellect rather then from the Spirit of God, and in many fellowships there may be the Spirit moving but there is a mixture, of worldliness or greed that enters in and taints the word going forth. It is like moldy bread, it is like putting new wine in old wine skins.
 
I cannot support such a church but I support the need, true need in the body around the world for me that is in Africa, the Lord has given me such a love for the African people.  But even in Africa the ways of America has tainted them, it  has made them hungry for what we have, money. Lord have mercy!
 
There is so much self serving that the Spirit does not have full access in a life that is not surrendered to him.
He has been calling, He has been knocking and yet so many have never opened the door, they are trying to enter in some other way. And the way is narrow, and few that be that find it.  There is only One Way and that is through Christ's shed blood on the cross.
 
It grieves me so much as I have heard from people that say that the words they read really touched their heart, but you see, we have to go further we have to press into the Spirit of God, we have to press  in and cling to the Lord Yeshua, Jesus Christ.
Even myself, as I found myself not abiding as close as I once was, now I have to press in even harder.  We cannot let up, we must make Him our portion or we will not be strong enough, we will not be where where He wants us during this terrible season coming upon us. If you have drifted away or grown cold return to your first love.
 
Beloved do not turn your ears from what you are seeing around you, judgment is coming, and where should we be found? Do you think your church can save you?
 Do you think your pastor or leaders can  save you?
Only the Lord God almighty !
What  has He said in Psalm 91? If you do not remember go now and read it, because it says nothing about your church or Pastor, it says:

Psa 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

Are you abiding or dwelling there? This is where He will be looking for us, this is where He will keep us.

Read the whole chapter.  When things get so bad you do not know where to turn, you turn to the rock that is higher then You, but if you stay glued to him abiding in Him and His Presence you will know what to do.

 
I have cried out for many years against what I saw as false teaching, but it wasn't until I was able to begin my time in the wilderness, was I then able to really hear from God, and see clearly the errors and traditions of men.
 
We have to look at John the Baptist, Jesus Christ, Paul and many more of the prophets that separated themselves
from the world for a time so they could hear from God, each got revelation from the Lord of the truth, of what was coming.
 
I don't mean to say that today we can get extra revelation that doesn't line up with scripture, but what I am saying is that God is Spirit and He speaks to us as Spirit, and we cannot hear from Him until we are away from all the noise and clatter and cares of this world.  Jesus went away up to the mountains or even the desert to a lonely place to be alone with the Father so he could hear clearly his will, and so he could follow it out precisely.
 
You can't hear from him when you are being taught doctrine that is from the traditions of men, rather then from the Spirit of God, these men in seminaries get together and they argue what is true and what is not true in the bible and then we are to accept their brilliant ideas. This is how they have decided doctrine for us.  The Holy Spirit is alive and He will teach us if we will listen.  Man has put his intellect over the wisdom and knowledge of God.
 

1Co 2:11 For who among men knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of the man, which is in him? even so the things of God none knoweth, save the Spirit of God.

1Co 2:12 But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is from God; that we might know the things that were freely given to us of God.

1Co 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Spirit teacheth; combining spiritual things with spiritual words.

1Co 2:14 Now the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; and he cannot know them, because they are spiritually judged.

Of course I couldn't be exclusively away as those I mentioned, because I had to work, but I found that the more I spend time with the Lord,
away from the clatter and business of the world, constant chatter, the more I was learning from him.  He would speak through my pen or my fingers, I would sit down and the message flowed, not even thinking one thought.
 
Last year I began the ministry to Africa and so my writing changed somewhat and also the frequency of messages changed, because I was not spending as  much time at His feet.
 
Most every message came directly as I studied scripture or I was praying. And the form changed I believe because
 I was not spending as much time for the up close and personal relationship I had from 2004-2006 when I would spend hours at the feet of the Lord.
 
I don't claim to be a prophet or even desire titles as those who know me know this.
 But I do believe I am as one crying in the wilderness, I am a messenger, a watchman in the house of the Lord, warning
 that time is winding down, and that the days grow darker.
 The threats of terrorism are looming down on us, from the powers of nature, from the total depravity of the world.
 And yet so many are asleep, they are lukewarm if saved at all.
They are only interested in what will benefit them in the flesh.
 
The Lord is not speaking any more to those who will not listen, they have been warned by so many watchmen, and now it is time for the refining of our relationship with Him.  For those who are truly His.
So if you are truly one of His put everything  aside and seek him only.  I know we are to occupy until he comes but we are also to put Him first and if we are lukewarm he will spew us out of His mouth.
 
The Lord is saying: I will only speak to those who will listen, those with listening ears, those whose heart is on fire for me.
I know your words, see I have set before you and open door and no one can shut it, for you have a little strength, kept my word and have not denied My name. Because you have kept my command to persevere I will keep you in the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world to test those who dwell on the earth.
 
The time is now here, you are either hot or cold, if you are lukewarm I will vomit you out of  my mouth.
There are those who say I am rich and have need of nothing, they will find they are not rich enough to stand in the judgment that is coming on the whole world, as all
that is not of Me will burn in the judgment in one fashion or another.
 Only a close habitation with me shall keep you. 
 
Look around you can you not see it has begun? The die has been cast and only those who cling to me shall endure.
 
I know and test the hearts of men. I know the works and the motivations. I know what is done for their own glory, and what is done for Mine.
I know everything in your heart, and nothing passes from my view, all sin, all the iniquity is seen by Me and I say repent or be judged.
 
Men think that they are not seen by me, they do despicable things things no eyes should look upon and they do it thinking no one sees 
but I know, I see and I will judge, those things that are not repented of.
 
I love those who love Me, and those who seek me shall find me. Who will  put Me first, I must have your whole heart, I will not share you with idols.

Pro 8:17 I love them that love me; And those that seek me diligently shall find me.

Look about you and you will see My word being fulfilled in the earth today. Only those with eyes to see and ears to hear will know and understand what they are seeing, the rest are oblivious to that which does not please their flesh or their intellect.

Judgment shall come swiftly and without warning to those who do not understand, those who are wise shall understand and be prepared, they have been listening for My voice of instruction while sitting at My feet.

It shall be as Daniel in the lions den or Meshach, Shadrach and Abendego, as a Mother hen gathers her chicks under her wings, there shall I be. These days your faith shall be tested.

A good man's steps are ordered of the Lord, here I will test the true, your faith must not waver with your heart fully on Me, the author and finisher of your faith.

If you do not see Me, if you do not hear Me, you are lukewarm and  you are not walking in the Spirit, but after your own flesh your own desires, your heart is not right with me repent and return to that which must come first, your love for Me.

I do not seek after works from men but a heart that seeks My will, My glory My ways and My righteousness.

I seek fruit the fruit of repentance, from dead works and the fruit that is eternal that reflects My IMAGE.

Do you see Me high and lifted up? or do you see only that which is in the world. This reveals the true state of your heart.

Repent of lukewarmness, repent of your idols, repent of your dead works, repent of your sins that make a mockery out of my name that are repulsive to My righteousness.

 
Repent or go through the fires of My judgment which shall be a fire that shall  clean your garments and make them white, this is more valuable then fine gold.
 
So you say you do good works? The world does good works, but they are not initiated by me, those
who call themselves My church do good works but they are often to elevate self and make a  name for self among men, to be seen of men.
They are not pleasing to Me, nor do they seek My will, it is all works of the flesh and will be burned.
 
I judge the hearts of men.
My heart is on the meek and humble, the broken. The meek shall inherit the earth.  The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom and before honor is humility.
Repent of your pride and arrogance, repent of your dead works, for my judgments shall be seen in the earth, My coming is near.

Whole Lot of Shaking


This is an old repost and was given in April 2005, and I reposted it December 2006.
I believe it is for today, look around you see what is transpiring.


"The Shaking Has Begun"
Beloved Shoshanna
Apr 27 2005 12:00AM


Beloved,
All things that can be shaken has begun, in the prisons, in the churches, in ministries in the world and in nature. I will shake the nations of the earth, yea even heaven. There shall be a shaking such as you have never known.
The shaking will be in each individuals life, you shall see with your own eyes what will stand, what is of Me and what is not. Nothing will go unnoticed. Nothing gets past My eyes.

It will show you whether you have put your faith in Me, or in the arm of flesh. It will prove each mans work, what can be shaken will fall. What cannot be shaken will endure.

Yes, I put men in position, and I remove them, I set up kings and remove kings and I shall remove those that are dead wood, they shall be cast into the fire for they have produced no fruit. You shall know them by their fruit.

Do not look upon the outward circumstances, but look to me, for when you look at the outward circumstances you miss what I AM doing, you cannot stop what has begun, what has been set into motion. Man looks on the outward appearance of things, but I look upon the heart, what I see I judge. For I am a consuming fire.

Do not get caught up with the affairs of the world, for I would have My children watch Me, and what I AM doing, for you cannot change a hair on your head, how then can you change the course of judgment and once things have begun as they have, you will be called upon to do nothing but what I tell you to do, nothing else, but pray. Have I not said, do not look to the right nor to the left?

You have not been called to get into the affairs of men, but to listen to My voice and follow Me. I have called you to a walk of humility and meekness, walking in love redeeming the time while it is still day, for the night is coming, there is darkness that is coming upon the whole earth, great darkness and you will be a light in that darkness. Fill yourself with My Holy Spirit continue daily at My feet that you will have enough light to walk in darkness. You shall lead many out of the darkness into My marvelous light, but you must not get off course when you see the leaders fall, for great will be their fall. Stay on course do not look at the events but at Me, for great fear will come on many because their eyes were upon fearful things rather than kept upon My face.

Those who have invested great trust in their leaders will find themselves spinning out of control in the emotional upheaval that will be coming to those who they trusted in and followed instead of Me.

Do not shrink back at the persecution for they persecuted me, so they will persecute you also. Blessed are you when they revile you and persecute you and say all manner of evil against you falsely for My name sake.

I am bringing great winds of adversity upon the land, will you be ready? Are you clinging to your own flesh or are you clinging to Me? Those who love their life will lose it.

I am going to shake heaven and earth, who shall stand? My children who know me, and My voice and who have produced fruit by My life in them.

I will shake your world, what will you then hang onto? Your treasure's will be moth eaten and worth nothing to those who cling to them, the world will not be able to save you for it will be crying out for the rocks to fall on them for the fierceness of My anger. There is only one who can save, I the Lord have called you by name, you shall walk through the waters and it will not overcome you, nor through the fire, for it shall not burn you, for you are carved upon the palm of My hands. And no one shall snatch you out of My hand, for I know those who are Mine.

The time has come beloved to rest in me, walk with me, as I lead you into the promised land of milk and honey, for this shall be after I have shaken and cleansed all that is displeasing to me. For you are a chosen generation for such a time as this have you been called, this is what you have long been preparing for in your time in the wilderness. Some of you are stragglers but I shall get everyone in line and in formation when I sound the alarm.


You shall be like Gideons Army, small in number but great in obedience, for My army cannot move without obedience.

You will be called to take your positions, and to move out, you will await My orders, My commands. To take nothing with you but your full armor, and absolute trust in your commander and chief, for I the Lord AM shaking the world one more time. In Me you live, move and have your being, and I shall move through this land in great victory, for I will restore what can be restored, and I will have a bride with out spot or wrinkle. For My word will not return unto Me void.

 

Stand Still And See The Salvation Of The Lord
Beloved Shoshanna
Oct 3, 2007


Exodus 14:13
And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.

Beloved,

Do not fear when trials and tribulation come your way, and they will come, but STAND AND SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD.

The children of Israel leaving Egypt is a type and a shadow for our example, of what is to come.

For just as the children were under bondage and persecution, so shall that day come again, when the beast comes against the body of Christ, then she will be taken in to the wilderness and will be cut off from mammon, the worlds system of money and provision. And there she will have no one else to trust in but the Lord, she will not have anyone else to turn to. And the Lord will miraculously provide.

Just as Elijah was fed by ravens so were the children of Israel given daily manna and even quail from heaven. So the Lord will feed and provide for you.

The Lord tested the children of Israel and so He will test you in the wilderness, will He find faith when He returns?" Exodus 15:26
And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

So many of you have trusted in the arm of the flesh, as soon as a trial comes, or the Lord is dealing with you in certain areas, you run to the arm of flesh for the solution. Or you blame the devil, or some other to be responsible. Was not Pharaoh's heart hardened so that he could not release the children of Israel? Nothing comes to you, except it is run through the fingers of God.

It is fear that grips you at that moment, but if you knew how much God loves you, and how much He desires to provide for every need and that there are so many unclaimed promises you are yet to receive.
Yet you run to this place and run to that place, you borrow to pay, you manipulate, you steal from God and you are still trusting in the arm of flesh.

Instead of looking to the hills from whence cometh your help, your help comes from the Lord.

You must wait patiently for the Lord in peace.

It is easy to say you have faith in the Lord, when you are not trusting in Him completely, when you run to other resources.

God changes not, He is the same yesterday and today and forever..

Are you not aware that nothing happens by chance and just as Pharaoh's heart was hardened so that God would receive the glory in all the miracles He performed before the Pharaoh and the Israelites.

He can and does allow those things to come against you to test you just as He tested the children of Israel to see if they would hearken to His voice and listen to His commandments and obey Him, not doing what is right in their own eyes.

The trials you are going through now will test your faithfulness in believing God, that His word is true, and He is faithful to perform His word. As a believer you are to walk by faith and not by sight, those words are true today as they were yesterday, for we are saved by grace through faith. If you believed Christ for your salvation, you have to believe Jesus Christ that if He loves you enough to save you, He loves you enough to provide for every need, WITH NO EXCEPTIONS.
The only reason you have not seen it, is because you have not trusted in Him for those things but have trusted in Mammon.

You can willingly be taken through the wilderness, or you can go through mumbling and complaining, and end up taking the long way around, which for the children of Israel was 40 years.


When there is still "fear" you are still in bondage to Egypt,(the world)the flesh and the devil. Your God has promised to protect you as you abide in Him. God is not a God that He should lie, but His promises are yea and amen. Why do you fear the walk of faith in the wilderness? Do you not know that if you can truly trust God now, you can trust Him for any circumstance that comes to you, even persecution for righteousness sake.

For when the Israelites were about to enter into the promise land, they were afraid to enter, and they saw the Giants in the land, they saw themselves as grasshoppers and were afraid to enter. Numbers 13:32-33
And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. [33] And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.

And so God refused to allow them to enter and they all died in the wilderness, only Joshua and Caleb and the young ones were allowed to enter into the Promise Land.

Numbers 14:27-31
How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me. [28] Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the Lord, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: [29] Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me, [30] Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun. [31] But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised.

There will be many giants in the land to prevent you from attaining what God has promised, these giants will come against you in every way, it will seem impossible in your own eyes.

So where do you go, when there is trouble all around? "You go to the Rock that is higher than you", what do you do? You Stand and see the salvation of the Lord.

No Resurrection Life Without Humiluity

 
Today was a revelation the Lord open my eyes to. Humility.

No Resurrection Life, Without Humility
Belovedservant

8/15/210



Beloved, it was made clear this truth to me this morning, that there is no true flowing of the rivers of life until we lay down self, and become nothing so God cam be all.

We can't say we have died to self and not be humbled, it seems that satan would have those in the church live like the world, with the lust of the flesh the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, and satan blesses them for it, just as he tempted Jesus in the wilderness, he said he would give him all the kingdoms of the earth if he would worship him.

Jesus is our example, he said Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart and you shall find rest for your souls. Matt 11:29.

He says take His yoke, be yoked to Him, oxen are yoked and they move with each other and are led by the driver, the way that they shall go, but Jesus says learn of Me, for i am meek and lowly, when we learn meekness and humility we will find rest for our souls, we will no longer be the driver of our own life, but as we humble ourselves or go lower as Heidi Baker calls it, so that we are nothing and he can be everything then it will be like moving with him effortlessly, we will relax and go for the ride.

We cannot die to ourselves until we humble ourselves and become humble, because until we do we will always want to do things our way, we will always want to take God's glory, for things we do, how much we know etc. Pride comes in many forms, whether it is proud of our station in life, or that we are doing great things for God, being right, knowing more then others. They are all pride and it is the hardest thing to die to, but we cannot die to self until we die to pride.

Even to say,"I am a child of the King" comes off as pride, saying we are this or that.

I learned that because I had prayed to make myself humble and meek that I may die to self, He has given me many experiences and chances to humble myself before man,even to be humiliated, even my physical state I am in I believe HE IS ANSWERING MY PRAYER
.

I have tried to go to Doctors for help and the Lord has foiled my plans, now I am like a little child totally dependent on Him to care for me as it is very hard sometimes to care for myself and keep up with various chores in the house and still work part time.
I did not always go to the Lord to seek His will about what I was to do, and it always ended up in disaster or somehow became a giant headache.

It does not matter what we have been taught the word of God is how we are to live.

Much of the newer translations or easier to understand versions take out much of the meaning of what Christ was and His example we are to follow, and minimizes the graces of meekness and humility, like it isn't for today, but that could not be further from the truth.Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who made Himself of NO reputation, and took on the form of a servant. He humbled Himself, and became obedient to death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God highly exalted him. Phil 2-5,7-9.

Know ye not, that so many of us were baptized unto Jesus Christ, were baptized until His death, therefor we are buried with him by baptism unto death, that like Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father. Even so we also should walk in newness of life.

So if we have been planted together in the likeness of death we shall also in the likeness of His resurrection. Romans 6:3-5

If we do not take His word seriously then what kind of Christians are we? the Lord saved us from sin including the sin of pride, he showed us how we were to follow in his example. So that we would no longer be a fallen race but one pattern after God. There is no true salvation until we die to self and pride, and we will know if we made it when He see's His reflection is in our face.

Satans sin was pride, he refused to humble himself before God he wanted to be like God and be worshipped like God.

His whole nature is pride, and he whispered in the ear of Eve that she could be as God knowing good and evil.

All wars, and blood shedding among nations, selfishness and suffering, ambition, jealousy. broken hearts and marriages come from pride.


It is pride that makes it needful we be saved, because that was man's first sin.

I am seeing also that so many Christians that have truly desired to lay their lives down for Christ are suffering greatly, some with persecutions some with sickness or physical pain, could it be they too have asked to die to self.

And much of the Christian world that is more into the world and the pride of life do not seem to be going through the same things, so brothers and sisters , we cannot even ascend to heaven until we are in the image of Christ, love and humility. We first have to go lower before we can ascend.

We have to go lower so he can be God, our God is too small because we are to large.

We must humble ourselves, so that he can live in and through us, that requires death to self and all its fleshly sin of pride, taking credit for things only God can do.




Look on every humiliation, every confrontation, and offense of others as a means for the Father to bring us to humility,every sickness or loss is a means of the Lord to make us totally us dependent on the Lord, it is a painful process but a needed one, for humility is the path to life.

Remember he said You must enter into the kingdom as a little child.

"Verily I say unto you, Whosover shall not receive the kingdom as a little child, shall in no wise enter in". Luke 18:17

So no prideful person can enter into the kingdom, we must be lowly, and trusting. Little children are very humble and meek.

Listen to this: "Verily I say to you, except your be converted, (transformed)and become as little children, ye shall in no wide enter into the kingdom of Heaven."

"Whosoever there for shall humble himself as a little child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom of God'

Tmust be the Spirit of our life, it must be his life manifesting in us.

Then when dealing with our fellow man, we are "Through love serve one another," let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking and envying one another." Galations 5:13-26

'In honor preferring one another",

Therefore walk with lowliness and meekness with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit, in the bond of peace. Eph 4:2-3

Giving thanks always, for all things unto God and the Father in the name of Jesus Christ submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Ephesians 5:20-21

And this one, my favorite.

Putting on therefore as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercy, kindness, humbleness of mind,meekness, longsuffering,

forbearing one another, if any man have a quarrel against any, even as Christ forgave you, so also do.Above all these things put on Charity,(love)and let the peace of God rule in your hearts. to which you were called in one body, and be ye thankful. Colossians 3:12-15.

It takes great humility to live the life of love to all.

Out of your belly shall flow rivers of living water.

In humility He is Present. his is not just when we are in God's Presence, or for a time when we are thinking of Him or when we pray but it

 





A Voice Crying In The Wilderness
Beloved Servant
Aug 20 2008 02:57AM


 
It is a grief in my heart as I have seen over the last 25- 30 years the increase in false teachings in the church.  It is as when it seems like nothing is happening, there are always those who make something happen.

I sat up until early this morning writing, but as so often happens what I have written mysteriously disappears off my computer. This morning I had a very short electrical blackout, it was enough to shut down my computer and  when my computer came back on everything was lost.
 But I am not going to  let the enemy of our lives discourage me from sharing my heart and the word of God with you all.

It always seems as if it is the big names, with the greatest exposure that seems to come up with the new teachings, or old ones wrapped in a new wrapper.

I wonder if my brothers and sisters who follow after these leaders realize how obscure most of the prophets of old were.  They were simple men doing a simple job.

Most were sheep herders or herdsmen of some kind, they were not rich, well known with a world wide following but were obscure men and women, with the exception of a very few.
 They were men who spent long hours in the wilderness having much time in prayer and intimacy with God.

 Most of them worked with their fathers on their fathers land, and the furtherest thing from their minds was that God was going to use them mightily.
 Jesus Christ had such humble beginnings, he was born in a lowly manger, John the Baptist came out from the wilderness  just wearing  camel hair, with a leather girdle about his loins eating locust and honey.

He came walking, not flying Lear jets, nor driving Mercedes. This was God's  man of the hour to prepare the way of the Lord.

The prophets came to warn the people of  coming judgment because the people were doing evil in God's sight.

Jdg 6:1  And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years.
If you mention any of those verses today you are told we are under a new covenant today.

Has God changed He know longer hates evil? So He no longer brings judgment?
Only self serving feel good meetings, and pleasure for the people of God? irregardless of their spiritual state?

I want today to look at who God chooses to do great and mighty things.

The children of Israel continually did evil in the sight of God, so he allowed the Midianites to prevail against  Israel, they even made caves and dens into strongholds in the mountains to hide from them.

They had destroyed, all their sheep, cattle, all livestock, left nothing from which to sustain them.

Jdg 6:4  And they encamped against them, and destroyed the increase of the earth, till thou come unto Gaza, and left no sustenance for Israel, neither sheep, nor ox, nor ass.

The Midianites were  without number, and they came into the land to destroy everything on it.
And Israel CRIED UNTO THE LORD.

When God heard them cry unto Him, he sent to them a prophet.

Jdg 6:8  That the LORD sent a prophet unto the children of Israel, which said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I brought you up from Egypt, and brought you forth out of the house of bondage;
Jdg 6:9  And I delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of all that oppressed you, and drave them out from before you, and gave you their land;
Jdg 6:10  And I said unto you, I am the LORD your God; fear not the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but ye have not obeyed my voice.

 I don't know if you noticed as I have, but the conditions then were not much different then today.
A young man Gideon the son of Joash the Abiezrite was threshing wheat in a winepress trying to hide it from the Midianities.
The ANGEL OF THE LORD appeared to him.

Jdg 6:12  And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him, and said unto him, The LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valour.

Gideon said why Lord if you be with us has all this fallen on us?, where are all the miracles our Fathers told us about?  He has delivered us into the hands of the Midianites, has God forsaken us?

This is the cry of those of whom judgment has been pronounced.

Gideon didn't see Israels sin, he was totally incredulous.  He couldn't believe that God would allow all these things to come upon them.

Isn't that what many Christians in America think right now, even though there is sin in the camp, in the lives of believers, even though the church has distorted His teachings to the point they are nothing like He taught them?

Even though there is no fear of God, but a seeking after the material and for pleasure. having their cake and eat it too mentality. Never mind that the cry of the poor is ignored, the widows and children left to fend for themselves.
Do they think God will wink at these sins?

 Most do not believe God will bring judgment, if He does they will think He forsook them just as Gideon and the children of Israel were thinking. And shake their hands at Him.

Jdg 6:14  And the LORD looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee?

 Gideon could not believe God would use him, he came from a poor family, he said he was the least in his family.

Now  does this sound like he is some famous Prophet? Some well known preacher?

No he is very meek and humble.  Can't even believe God is telling him these things.

Jdg 6:15  And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house.

Jdg 6:16  And the LORD said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man.

Gideon still cannot believe this is happening. He even tests the Lord who has spoken to make sure it is the Lord.

Jdg 6:17  And he said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy sight, then shew me a sign that thou talkest with me.

Jdg 6:18  Depart not hence, I pray thee, until I come unto thee, and bring forth my present, and set it before thee. And he said, I will tarry until thou come again.
Jdg 6:19  And Gideon went in, and made ready a kid, and unleavened cakes of an ephah of flour: the flesh he put in a basket, and he put the broth in a pot, and brought it out unto him under the oak, and presented it.
Jdg 6:20  And the angel of God said unto him, Take the flesh and the unleavened cakes, and lay them upon this rock, and pour out the broth. And he did so.
Jdg 6:21  Then the angel of the LORD put forth the end of the staff that was in his hand, and touched the flesh and the unleavened cakes; and there rose up fire out of the rock, and consumed the flesh and the unleavened cakes. Then the angel of the LORD departed out of his sight

When the angel of the Lord had proven who he was, and that the Lord was truly speaking this, then Gideon began to believe.

Jdg 6:22  And when Gideon perceived that he was an angel of the LORD, Gideon said, Alas, O Lord GOD! for because I have seen an angel of the LORD face to face.

Yet Gideon still found it impossible to believe God could use him to destroy the Midianites, so he put a fleece before the Lord.

Jdg 6:36  And Gideon said unto God, If thou wilt save Israel by mine hand, as thou hast said,
Jdg 6:37  Behold, I will put a fleece of wool in the floor; and if the dew be on the fleece only, and it be dry upon all the earth beside, then shall I know that thou wilt save Israel by mine hand, as thou hast said.
Jdg 6:38  And it was so: for he rose up early on the morrow, and thrust the fleece together, and wringed the dew out of the fleece, a bowl full of water.
Jdg 6:39  And Gideon said unto God, Let not thine anger be hot against me, and I will speak but this once: let me prove, I pray thee, but this once with the fleece; let it now be dry only upon the fleece, and upon all the ground let there be dew.
Jdg 6:40  And God did so that night: for it was dry upon the fleece only, and there was dew on all the ground.

Even how Gideon defeated the Midianites is in itself remarkable, because he didn't go in there with thousands of men.
 Because God wanted to show, it is not by might nor by power, but by MY SPIRIT says the Lord.

I believe that the Lord will use His Army one more time, to do mighty exploits, but it will be men and women of Gideons stature.  One who is dead to self, and very very humble.

I do not believe that Gideon had no faith  that God could do those things, he already knew how God delivered the Fathers of Israel.
It was the unbelief that he would choose him, that God could do such a thing through Him.
He was a very humble and saw himself as the least of these.

This is exactly why God chose him, and why I believe that those chosen to do "greater things" will not be seeking the limelight, nor will they be of any great stature before the world.
Just as all the prophets God has chosen to speak for Him to the nations, including David who had been a shepherd in the fields.

1Co 1:27  But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

Even the way the defeat of the Midianites was accomplished is so like God, he does the impossible and shows us all it is only He that could do such an impossible feat, which seems impossible to our own eyes and mind and natural thinking.

The Midianites were without number. Look what God did to make sure that no one could claim this great feat. 
 This alone made Gideon and his men look like grasshoppers.

Jdg 7:2  And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people that are with thee are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, Mine own hand hath saved me.

So He weeded them out, he chose those who were not ashamed to appear foolish by lapping the water like a dog, what a humbling experience.
They must have had to get down on all fours to do this feat. Yet the ones who got on bended knees to drink the water were eliminated.
Gideon originally had 20,000 to go up against this great army of the Midianites, but then the number was dropped down to 10,000. but that was not enough for God to show He is God and He alone.

Jdg 7:7  And the LORD said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the other people go every man unto his place.

So this rag tag army of three hundred went out to face the Midianites whose number could not be counted.

Sounds impossible right?

Read on.
Gideon still had a problem believing God could do this thing through him and this small company of men.

There was a man who had a dream that he saw a cake of barley bread roll into the Midinaites camp into the tent and smote it and it fell.

Jdg 7:14  And his fellow answered and said, This is nothing else save the sword of Gideon the son of Joash, a man of Israel: for into his hand hath God delivered Midian, and all the host.

When Gideon heard this He worshipped God.

He then knew what God was about to do.

He gave a trumpet to each man,  a lamp and a pitcher, and he told them when he blew the trumpet they were to blow their trumpets, break the pitchers and hold the lamps in their left hands

They were to shout.   "The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon".

When the Midianite army heard this commotion they fled and cried.  God had literally terrified them to the point they destroyed each other.

That was it, this is our God!

They had no idea what hit them.  They had no idea the God of the universe had just delivered the Israelites out of their hands.
Everyone man turned against his own with the sword in the Midianite army. God caused them to defeat themselves.

Jdg 7:22  And the three hundred blew the trumpets, and the LORD set every man's sword against his fellow, even throughout all the host: and the host fled to Bethshittah in Zererath, and to the border of Abelmeholah, unto Tabbath.
Jdg 7:23  And the men of Israel gathered themselves together out of Naphtali, and out of Asher, and out of all Manasseh, and pursued after the Midianites.

I share this story because contrary to what many of you are being taught. God is not going to do the obvious, he is not going to use those who are rich in this worlds goods, those who have made a name for themselves to lead his Army one last time.

One thing I do know is that the true church of God needs to arise, and stand for truth.  You need to get back into the word and study to show yourselves approved a workmen not needing to be ashamed.

The body needs to wake up, to what is happening to the church and to the word of God. they have been sleeping and the wolves have come in for the kill.
And the sheep are wandering seeking pasture, and the Pastors have been trampling down  the residue.
The body is being given moldy bread and it is making the church sick, and the worst of it is that they believe what they are being taught, there is no discernment.
There eyes are closed, their heart is snatched by these body snatchers.

Rev 3:15  I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
Rev 3:16  So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Rev 3:17  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:
Rev 3:18  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.
Rev 3:19  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

We need to be about our Father's business, to reach the lost, to reach out to the one, who is suffering

The truth is brothers and sisters, we need to humble ourselves before the Lord, we need to offer ourselves as a living sacrifice.

Are we any better then the likes of Paul or John or Peter? these men suffered for the kingdom of God.
They laid their lives down at the altar. they paid the price to be given  the power.
They walked in holiness before the Lord.
And they never once asked for a thousand dollar seed offering, or any offering for that matter.

Stop listening to all the hype, and following after names.   it is a snare to you and to your soul.  I say this in love.

There is only ONE we are to follow, and His name is Jesus Christ, He will never you leave nor forsake you.

To be called and used of God is not to think of yourself more highly, but it is to put others before yourself and not to toot your own horn.

If He calls you to be in His great army it is Him that is great, forget about titles, if others want to call you by a title then that is on them if they so choose to do so, but do not tack one on your own name we are nothing, we need to become lower so Jesus Christ can be lifted higher, so He can be all that is important to us in our life.

If any is chosen to be in this army it is because you have gone through the wilderness of sacrifice, and have given up your own life for His.
It is an exchange life, His life for yours.

Seek him, seek what He wants you to do, to lead you in all your ways. Remember our life is not our own, we were bought with a price. His shed blood on Calvary.

Rise up church, and be the people of God He has called us to be.  WE can only be truly victorious when we are walking in His Word and His Spirit.

Stop talking about the gospel and begin to live it, for many we may be the only Gospel they will ever read.
BE THE CHURCH, STOP PLAYING CHURCH!!!
We have been given all we need to live the victorious life, to be overcomers. We have the living God within us.
The Holy Spirit anoints those who have died to their own self interest, To God be the glory!!!



The Fathers Love

Beloved Servant
Mar 7 2008 07:32PM


I feel very led to talk about the Father's love.
 
I  am sometimes accused of being critical when I speak forth  the word without watering it down as is done today.
Sometimes people will tell me that the Holy Spirit would not point out to us these things that it is not loving to do so, or that I should not speak about the church doing something wrong, that I should only pray.
And that none of us are perfect, and no one teaches a perfect doctrine. 
What is overlooked is that Paul told us to be like the Bereans, to study to show ourselves approved and that he Himself warned of false teachings in the church.
 
I believe it is time to look at the Fathers love.
He does love us and nothing will separate us from that love.
But we must see God in a complete picture.  Please let me take you back in time, but first let us look at a Father's love.
 
 God is Love, He loves us a Father would, and does.
A Father out of His love for us will also teach us the best way, and teach us what is harmful to us, and what can destroy our lives.
 
He starts out leading us gently, and then when that is ignored, he stops speaking, he allows us to experience trials but He continues to love us, that is called learning by our experiences.
 
In all of this he is teaching us to listen and obey Him, but often self knows better what it wants and it dangerously does things its own way.  
This is called rebellion or  ignoring the voice of the Holy Spirit.
 
But any Father who loves His children will bring about correction, he will discipline that child so as to bring them to a place of listening, submission and obedience.
He teaches us godly fear to obey Him.
 
I know for many of you this is alien. And though the Lord loves us unconditionally, He is the same God of the whole bible.
And when a child will not listen, and when this child continues to go his or her own way, and refuses to repent and return home to the Father's arms. Then very often a Father will leave the child to their own undoing.
 
What the Father wants the child to do is like the prodigal. He wants the child to get tired of the pig sties of the world, the self destruction, lust of the world, and return home.
And when he does, He will run to the child with open arms and will give Him His best, he will shower Him with gifts.  This is the Father's heart.
 
But as you remember before the flood, that God's said every imagination of man's heart was continually evil and was sorry he made man.
So though God loves us and is merciful and full of loving kindness, just as an earthly father, there comes a time when man refuses to turn back to Him, refuses to listen and obey Him, then He has no choice to take His hands off, and fulfill His word.
There will be no sinners in heaven, no liars, no adulterers, no sorcerers, murderers, no idolaters.
 
He will never stop loving even those who turn away, but He is true to his word, His word never returns void.
 
I realize we live in a society that doesn't understand what I have stated above. We live in a very permissive society that allows children to do whatever they want, and if they cry for something it is given them. 
 
Many do not discipline their children as the Father does.
So a God that doesn't just love us and not discipline us no matter what we do, they cannot comprehend, they have put God in their own self made box.
And instead of man doing what God wants them to do, they expect God to do what THEY WANT Him to do, to suit their way of life.
 
 Those who understand how the Father disciplines those He loves, teach their children this same way and they learn what a loving merciful Father they have, and they also learn the boundaries their Father has taught them through what he has taught in His word.
These same children turn out to be beautiful children in their Father's image, full of love and mercy, and in turn, teach their own children in this same manner.
 
We have to look at the cross to understand a Father's love.
 He loved His only begotten Son. But he loved the world and he gave his only Son up as a sacrifice to the world so that you and I could have forgiveness of sins, and have access to the Father.
 
Can you understand this Father's love?

  He watched as His Son that He GAVE to come to earth to be a propitiation for our sins, die on the cross.
He heard Him as He cried out in the Garden,  he heard Him saying, "Take this cup from Me, if thou wilt, never the less not my will but thine be done.
 THAT IS LOVE.
How He had to watch Him being persecuted, and brutally beaten.
His hair and beard pulled out of his head, and to be forced to carry His own heavy cross to Golgotha, with his back bleeding and his skin hanging from Him like butchered meat.
Then to watch Him be stripped of all His garments to be brought to open shame before the world.
 To be nailed, hands and feet to a crude crossbeam.  It was pushed up against His back every time He took a breath and His back that was like mince meat and bleeding.

  Then to watch Him suffer as He could not even take a breath, without agonizing pain.  All  His suffering was agonizing and unbearable for our loving Father.
 
The Father knew He had to leave His Son for a time when He bore all of our sins upon His back because He could not look upon sin.
 
The greatest agony at that time must have been when His Son cried out.
 Mat 27:46  And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
 
 Sin causes a separation between us and the Father, and so it was with our Lord.  That must have been unbearable to the Father, for His Son to think He had abandoned Him.

But still He was true to His word.

He agonized with His Son, he agonized because His word had to be fulfilled. He agonized because he knew some would reject this sacrifice, he agonized knowing that some would not truly follow His son,  and some would fall away.
 
The Father watched Him suffer for you and I.
 
 All because of the Father's love for us, so that we would be able to come boldly before the throne of grace, and to have our sins washed away in His blood.  So that there would be no longer a separation between He and His children.
 
Some say the Lord would not allow them to go through suffering, but YET HE ALLOWED HIS OWN SON TO SUFFER FOR OUR SAKE.
The Father cannot go against His own word, it must be fulfilled and Yeshua's  death on the cross was prophesied in the old Testament. 
Just as the coming judgment for those who reject God's ways for their own.  He is loving and kind, compassionate and merciful, He warns and he waits, but there will come a time when He says, "ENOUGH", just as he did before the flood.  Just as he did before Sodom and Gomorrah.
 
In the garden of Gethsemane, Yeshua learned obedience to the Father. He knew that no matter what lay ahead of Him, He had to obey at all cost.  The word says he sweat great drops of blood.  This in itself had to be agonizing to face knowing  exactly what He  would suffer ahead of time.

Mat 26:39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

I know the Lord has great compassion for us, He seeks those who are needy for Him, those who need just one look from him.
That long for him, and His word, that will make Him everything in their lives.
 
Yet much of what is referred to as the bride, have gone their own way, it wants to create their own idea of the Father.
 They want to take out hell and the cross, and certainly being covered by the blood right out of their teaching, they want the Father to look the other way and to condone what they do, wink at their sin.
 
It is very much like we see between husbands and wives today, marriage is being redefined, and women go their own way and men go their own way, do their own thing. There is no order or structure.
Men marry men, and women marry women. Is this the way God designed His creation?  Is this the original design of our Father?
Is this how the Father created the bride?  Does He serve us or do we serve Him?
 
 Oh, how He loves you and I. but the point here is we have to look  at what He says in His word, is best for us.
 

Rom 9:19 Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?

Rom 9:20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?

Rom 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?

Rom 9:22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:

Just like an earthly Father, Our Father loves us and cares about what happens to us, He cares when we are sick or in need, he cares when we are not going in the right direction.  He wants us to make right choices, even in our choice of spouse.
At one time the parents chose the mates for their children, in some countries this is still done.
 
I know many do not know what a real Father's love is, like myself who grew up with out a Father, and what I had was very stern and mostly unloving. he disciplined but he didn't do it in love.
Our heavenly Father disciplines us because He loves us. he knows if we go  our own way and he cannot bring us back we will be lost.
He will leave His other children and go to look for us, but if we still rebel and refuse to go our own way, he will have no choice but to allow us to be in the judgment with the unrighteous. It is our own choice.
Just as hell was not made for people. but was made for the devil and his angels.  But we make our own choices, and the Father will not go against our own will.
Nothing will seperate us from the love of God, even in judgment.  His love is eternal. Just as an earthly Father.
He loves you, will you love Him?

Eze 12:25 For I am the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord GOD.

 Brothers and sisters, How our Father loves us, and he longs to have a really up front and personal relationship with us. He wants us to know Him and His heart, and when we do, when we draw close to him,  He will draw close to us.
 We then see him as nothing but love, because we have succumbed to His love. this is what he yearns for, this was His design, not to judge us, but it is our own rebellion that causes us to be outside the door, that causes us to not be ready when He knocks..

My desire is not to criticize but open eyes. My heart grieves for all  that have gone their own way. I am like one crying out in the wilderness.




Apostasy
Beloved Servant
Feb 28, 2008


I feel very strongly impressed to speak about Apostasy in the church today.

It is not easy to talk about when I see so many whose eyes have been blinded by Satan, to the truth of the gospel.

Let us look at what Apostasy is.
Apostasia: Means departure or abandonment.

 It is a falling away in the church today from the true original teachings of Christ and the apostles.

Joh 12:40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

We see so many professing Christians have departed from biblical truth.

Many Pastors do not even use the bible in their text or on the podium, and many Christians do not pick up their bible except when they go to church.
So how are they to know what is being taught is truly biblical.

1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

1Ti 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

I know there are some still preaching the truth as there is a true remnant, but many have departed from the faith and are teaching doctrines of demons.

Many are preaching a so called cheap grace for salvation, and many are false leaders that do not preach repentance of sin and departure from immorality.

And some that are preaching truth and the right doctrines abandon God's moral laws and are not following God's standards of righteousness.

Thereby leading the flock into deception. Without Jesus as their model many Christians have gone astray.

Many leaders are not preaching the cross and the blood, and that we are called to suffer with Christ.
So the church has taken the easy wide road into the world and living for self.

Php 1:29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

We are to radically renounce sin.

Rom 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

We are to die to oneself and sacrifice oneself for the kingdom of God. Yet the body and the leaders do not want to hear this.

They do not want to sacrifice anything, in fact what they are teaching is quite to the contrary.

They preach getting everything for self. They have made God into a kind of Santa Clause that is smiling down on us ready to give us whatever we want, including Mercedes and multimillion dollar houses.

Forgetting the poor believers, and the poor in the world who are rich in faith. 2 Cor 9:5-11.
Read this, it is an eye opener. Giving to the needy is sorely lacking in the church today.

So many leaders have bought into the lie. Modern day teachings that are not biblical, but Satan knows how to twist scripture to deceive and blind the eyes of believers.

If we speak the truth we are accused of being negative, but I grieve for the body of Christ,
I am so concerned about the way many are headed.
They are headed off a cliff.
I just want to yell, "stop you are headed off a cliff", but they go blindly on, not heeding the Lord's warnings.

Do you search the scriptures daily like a Berean to see if what you are being taught is true?

Put it in complete context, do not accept a line in scripture to be the truth, check other scriptures to see if they all line up.
Not just on your Pastors word.

In fact after church on Sunday go to the word and read the whole chapter and context to see if what you are being taught is biblical.

If you do not do this every time you are in serious danger of being deceived.

2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

2Th 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

One night as I was going to bed, the Lord began to show me quite unexpectedly that the false teaching in the church has almost made much of the church like a cult, and those who have learned these false doctrines need to be deprogrammed.
They are following leaders instead of Christ.
Wow! that is serious.

They will not listen to the truth, because they read something in a book written by well known teacher or their own Pastor and they receive this into their spirit as truth.

These teachers that are teaching these man made doctrines, make millions off of unsuspecting Christians who buy their tapes and books, and think what they teach is God's truth, because they throw out a few scriptures and use them out of context.
And the unsuspecting are following every word they say like sheep following their false shepherd off a cliff.

I pray daily for discernment I cry out to the Lord to give me eyes to see, we are talking about peoples salvation here.

The good news is that God always has a remnant, that are faithful to the apostolic faith. And I do not mean some of the apostles that we have today that have made themselves apostles.

Rev 2:2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:

Did you know notice how the last two chapters of the bible focus on the issue of lying?

All liars shall have their part in the lake of fire which burneth with fire and brinmstone Rev 21:8

Those who make a lie shall not enter into God's holy city. Rev 21:27
Those who love and practice falsehood will be outside God's kingdom

Lying is the last sin condemned in the bible, probably because it was the sin that caused man to fall.

Deception is a lie. Let this be a warning to all that belive that God tolerates lying and deceit.

The word says narrow is the way that leads to life and few there be that find it, so not everyone that says Lord, Lord shall be saved. Only those who do the will of God.

They are the elect, the elect of Israel is the remnant of Israel, and the elect of the church is the remnant in the church. They have been grafted in.
Remember Israel lost out because of unbelief, and if you do not believe in the truth of the gospel that has been set forth from Jesus Christ and the Apostles you are in unbelief.

Mat 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Mat 25:10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

Luk 18:7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?

Rev 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Through this Remnant the church will become a warrior church.

Eph 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

God has been preparing the remnant in the wilderness, teaching them to have the faith of Daniel, and To die to self and to overcome sin.

They stand for the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ, they overcome by the blood of Christ and the word of their testimony, not loving their life unto death. This is the remnant that will endure to the end.

They pray daily for discernment, for wisdom, knowledge and understanding.

They live and walk by the spirit.

They are taught of the Holy Spirit through the word of God taught by Jesus Christ through the apostles by revelation of the Sprit, not teachings that man has created for his own benefit and by the intellect of his fleshly mind.

Christian, wake up! search the scriptures daily.

Pray for discernment and wisdom, you have no idea the danger you are in.

1Co 15:34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.

Eph 5:14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

Rom 13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

For those of you that are still not believing this is possible. Understand this.

WHEN YOU ARE DECEIVED YOU DO NOT KNOW YOU ARE DECEIVED, BECAUSE IF YOU KNEW YOU WOULD NOT BE DECEIVED.

This is a very profound truth. Many have blindly accepted doctrines from world famous teachers or Pastors or leaders, because they are well known.

You believe they must be teaching the truth, but if you are studying daily the word of truth, you will not be led blindly into apostasy which is what is happening with much of the church today.

Read the bible not books written by men for your doctrine.
The Lord is the same yesterday, today and forever, He changeth not.

So we must stick to the bible for the truth.
Jesus is the truth. he never watered down the gospel to suit himself.

Open your yes and see that apostasy is widespread in the church today.

A great falling away is occurring as we speak, and the man of sin will be revealed, once God removes what is hindering.

The Holy Spirit will remain to convict mans heart that they may still be saved.

Without the Holy Spirit no man shall be saved.

Mat 24:24 For there shall arise false Christ's, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

I pray that someone will open eyes, I am not teaching a strange doctrine, this is right out of the word of God, and it is a warning, and admonition from the Lord.

If you stop your ears and refuse to listen and obey, he will stop warning you and it will be too late.

We are very near that time. So Awake and get your lamps filled to overflowing, so that you will be ready for the wedding feast.

Psa 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

 


Father Make Us One


Tonight I have been pondering the subject of unity. I know that the internet has brought into my life brothers and sisters that I am in unity with in heart and mind.

I cherish my sisters and friends on the net, though we are apart we are together in the Spirit.
In such a busy society with work, children and of course for me, work, ministry and writing which takes up so much time.

Color is never an issue for me, who cares, it is unity it is oneness.

I can find more like minded on the net then in my small community, and it is such a blessing, I thank God for the net and for my internet friends. to me there is a whole differnt intimacy then I experince with my brothers and sisters here in my community.

It isn't that I like being a hermit or a recluse, but God has given me a call, and if I got so involved in everyones lives, and going to every church activity, I would not have time to do what I am called to do, and that is to be a watchman in the house of my Lord, to touch lives and to reach souls for Christ.

To be quite honest with you, I do not find unity in the church. Especially what the Lord had in mind.
So this is why I write this message.

It is so important to be in unity, in all areas of the church.

it is so important to have Christ love flowing back and forth to one another.

There were not many different beliefs or doctrines, in the early church that came from the flesh.
It is the flesh that thinks it knows more then any one else.

But Jesus intention was one church with many members of all nations.
It is truly disturbing to hear about a black church, a white church, a Chinese church and on and on.
And "My particular church is the right church".
This really is a turn off. Because there is only one church, and we have to stop dividing it and become one.

We need to understand that what divides are opinions rather then scriptures.
The Lord never meant for scripture to divide.
Pride is behind division. Satan is behind pride and division.

He sits back and laughs at the division he has brought to the church of Jesus Christ.

One of the problems I can clearly see is the intellect. For knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.
So many want to intellectualize the gospel.
The gospel is not from the mind it is of the Spirit of God, and cannot even be understood without the Spirit, and this is where so many part company.

Even wisdom is not to be human wisdom but the wisdom that comes down from heaven. It is so prideful to delare our own wisdom.

Man cannot bring unity to the body of Christ, only the Holy Spirit of God can and will do that.

So it is more of the Holy Spirit that is urgently needed in our lives, we need to humble ourselves before God and recognize we are nothing without Him, we are but a grain of sand.

We need to cry out to God for more of the Holy Spirit, and to bring unity to the church.

Then and only then will we be seeing as God see's, then and only then will we look at people with His eyes, and we will not see color, we will not see the country they are from, but we will see Spirit to Spirit.

What a beautiful vison of loveliness to behold.

All walking in love toward one another, walking in peace, walking in the Spirit as the Lord had intended.

We need unity, and when people of color come to church we need to not see the color, but see Jesus in everyone.

And when someone poorly dressed comes to church, and sits in the back, welcome him, give him the best seat in the house and treat him like one of your most respected persons in the church.
Not only for love's sake but you never know if it is an angel unaware.
Heb 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.


It breaks God's heart to see the poor so disrespectfully treated and those of another skin color or culture made to feel they are different.
We all have the same blood in our veins.

I know that many poor do not attend church because they do not have what we may consider proper attire.
Many Christians will come to church all decked out, as if that means anything to the Lord, and then those who come in dressed in what some might consider shabby.
The visitors feel very uncomfortable.

It is more important to dress modestly, and not in a way that attracts attention to one self.

We are not in church to have people look at us but rather to see Jesus.
We are there to worship the Lord, and we want Him to look on our hearts and see they are pure before him, so when others come in without nice clothes we can welcome them just as we would anyone else and they will not feel different.

Jesus never went to the temple in Armani suits. He never drove up to the church in a Mercedes.

He either walked or rode a donkey.
Today most people would be embarassed to make their entrance that way. It is all about image.

Man looks at the outward appearance of man, God looks on the heart.

It is very distressing when I go to church, and it is segregated. I want to go where everyone is together, one mind, one spirit and one heart.
that is what it is all about. We all have the same Spirit, so we should relate to one another in that way rather then differnces, that is the true church, one in the Spirit.

This should be our hearts desire to see the body come together as one.
I don't mean echumenicalism, which is coming together in all differnt beliefs.

No, by the Spirit there is one church. One Body, and One Spirit.

Eph 4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

Eph 4:5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

Eph 4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

To be technical, we are the body, the body is not a building.
So we must be the church, and that means if we are the church, His body, His church, and His Spirit is within us.
AS the Lord created the church, there would be no denominations,no schisms, no color, many countries, many people all believing the truth of the gospel according to the Holy Spirit.

Racism is a sickness that is not from the Lord, nor is prejudice and in order for us to be one, we must allow Him to remove all traces of that from our lives.

There are really few differences, each may have a particular food they like, but they all do the same thing every day, they eat and sleep, they marry and give birth, and they are equally loved by God.

Isn't it amazing how he doesn't see us as color though He made us as a flower garden, he gave us so many variaties to enjoy, so many colors and each is so lovely to behold.

He doesn't see everyone as differnt colors but He sees them as a color wheel that all blends together and can mix colors to get other colors. The only thing he hates is when we mix with unbelievers, and worship their idols.
It is not the color that is the problem, it is in marrying unbelievers, that will pull us away from worshipping the one true God.

Have you ever noticed the mountains, how you will see so many shades of green, each are different yet each blends so perfectly together, He created all kinds of shades and hues and each blends so perfectly.

If everyone would put aside all their favorite denominations and beliefs, and would go back to the begining, and just get their bible out and let the Holy Spirit teach them.
We would all receive the same truth, it would not be by mans intellect, or opinion but by the Spirit of God.

And the Lord would show us His perfect plan for unity.

It is the Spirit only that can bring us into unity with one another.

Can you imagine how wonderful that would be, to be of one heart and mind like the early church, how much love that flowed between them, and as they prayed as One, more were added to the church daily.



Oh Lord, make us One, Lord gives us your eyes to see, Lord show us how to love one another as you love each of us.

Lord show us love, show us your plan for humanity, teach us truth Lord. Lord we are seeing so much apostasy as your word prophecied, and Lord if your Spirit would bring us together they all would see to turn back to you and the truth.

Lord we are so divided, we don't see each other as you see us Lord, give us eyes to see Lord as you see. Lord we ask You to heal the church, heal our nation, and forgive us for our pride and for shutting out Your Holy Spirit.

Lord heal us, Lord heal our land, Lord give us a hunger for more of You and Your Holy Spirits Presence in our lives.

Lord we repent of our divisions, or our prejudices, and for our opinions, Lord make us one.

In Jesus, Yeshua Precious name, amen and amen

My Gifts To You

Beloved Shoshanna
Sept 6 2007 12:02AM
 
My child do you think I do not know what you are suffering?
Have I not showed you to not cling  the things of the earth, but to cling to Me beloved, for only I know and can give love so fully to heal your broken heart.
People will disappoint you, they will not be there when you want them to be, for I have made each with his or her own purpose and destiny.
 
Hold each one loosely in the palm of your hand, do not grip them, do not hang onto that which you cannot keep, for life is only a breath's  moment in time, and I am for eternity.
Cling to Me beloved, and watch you will see all you need come into abundance in your life, but it comes naturally and only as you flow in My Spirit.
 I want you to have my fullness, I want you to have all the love and fulfillment that I have in abundance..
 
Do not be afraid to give love freely let it flow to others, do not hold it back, you see as you grow in the spirit those things you hold so dear will grow dim in the light of My love.  There is no lack, there is no loss in me, keep looking to me, I will show you the way.
 
So many of My children have been abandoned, so when someone leaves them they feel that loss once more,  that feeling of abandonment.
But remember I too was abandoned and forsaken, I was denied, even by own beloved disciples, they denied even knowing me, but I knew that I was accepted in the Beloved,that My Father loved me, I could not deny that, and I forgave those who left my side, freely and abundantly.
 
Beloved you have strayed from My purpose for you, You have entered back into the worries and cares of the world, you have not been abiding close to me as I have commanded, so now you are feeling the feelings of the soul rather then being free in the Spirit.
 
This was a test to see if you would continue to walk in the spirit or get into your emotions.  But now you see that that your needs are only filled in Me.  I am the only one who can meet those needs for love.
 
Return to me beloved, let go and allow the butterflies to fly, let them take wings and fly.
Don't you realize that children are a gift from me, and they are on loan and they are not yours they are Mine, and I have a perfect plan and purpose for each, and when you cling you hinder their growth.
Even the spiritual children I have given you, they are yours for a time to teach them how to fly in the Spirit, but then you have to let them try their wings and fall a few times before they fully learn to soar. 
 Haven't  you make wrong choices in your life? Did I not bring you back and show you again how to fly, until you were able to stay air born, even  now you are down ready to try your wings again.
 
Many of My children have not learned how to walk in the spirit, let alone fly so they can soar, many are crawling on the earth, they have not been released spiritually, they are still thinking about their fleshly needs, rather then truly growing in the spirit but you have to just guide them, not hang on to them they will return, they will make mistakes but you will teach them to begin again, and to trust Me with all their hearts and not lean on their own understanding.  But to acknowledge Me in all their ways, and I will direct their paths.
 
You must teach those I give you to build their house upon the rock, so when the storms come, and they are coming and the winds come and blow upon that house it will stand. If you do not do what I tell you, you will see that when the storms come that your  house will not stand it will seem to be on shifting sand. And great will be that fall.
 This is how it is when you do not draw close to me and stay  near, always abiding in  Me, you see that you get into areas out of the spirit, and when the storms come you cannot keep that house from falling.
 
I do not like to see you  in such pain but pain is a teacher, it teaches you that you are out of alignment with me, it is as if you are a broken branch that is not fully attached to the vine, so that my life cannot flow freely through you into others.
 Can you see that when you are walking in the Spirit you do not feel pain it is only as you get into your humanness, that part of you where your soul rules,that you feel pain but when you stay in the Spirit, the Spirit rules over the soul, and you do not feel emotional pain as before.
Your mind will and emotions must be continually be given over to the Spirit, so that the Spirit stays in control.
 
You must learn to walk continually in My Spirit, you will find that my gift is still there, it hasn't really left but you need to let go, so I can fully bring my plan to fruition in each life I bring to you. You are not to give all your energies to one,  I will give you many such gifts, so that you will fulfill My calling to touch lives, to teach them to fly.  These are My gifts to You.
