Harvest Must Come

In the midst of chaos, I AM HE.

When all the world seems turned upside down, I AM HE.

Do you think I did not know this was coming? Harvest always comes. Bad seed brings forth fruit as well as good.

Harvest must come, but repentance will root up foul seed. Crops can be dusted to spoil the weed.

Have you had enough?

You who laughs in scorn. You mock, you spit on those I have borne. Enough that only those you see, are those that produce more weeds for thee.

Turn and know the One True God.

“And this is eternal life, that they know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.” John 17:3

Turn from rebellion–receive the Blood. It is the only way to change a life. The only way to end the strife.

The time is coming, I’ll no longer plea. The time is near, when all will flee.

My Father stands, announcing the day.

“But of that day or that hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Take heed, watch; for you do not know when the time will come.” Mark 13:32-33

Tears will shed, knees will bow. All will know, who’ve made the vow, it was worth the wait, to see the gate.

Tell Me, where are all your mockers now?

“Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. By myself I have sworn, from my mouth has gone forth in righteousness a word that shall not return: ‘To me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.’

‘Only in the Lord, it shall be said of me, are righteousness and strength; to him shall come and be ashamed, all who were incensed against him. In the Lord all the offspring of Israel shall triumph and glory.'” Isaiah 45:22-25

Bow before it’s too late.

Bow that, you too, may reach that Pearl Gate!

“And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each of the gates made of a single pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, transparent as glass.” Revelation 21:21

“Then I saw a great white throne and him who sat upon it; from his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Also another book was opened which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, by what they had done.” Revelation 20:11-12

And the sea gave up the dead in it. Death and Hades gave up the dead in them, and all were judged by what they had done. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire; and if any one’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:13-15

“–and I heard a great voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them; he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:3-4

“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense, to repay every one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.'” Revelation 22:12-13

“Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates.” Revelation 22:14

 

 

Three Days

Three days

It was three days from My death to the moment I arose, just three days. Three very long days, but just three days.

“–and the Son of man will be delivered to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death, and deliver him to the Gentiles; and they will mock him, and spit upon him, and scourge him, and kill him; and after three days he will rise.” Mark 10:33-34

Some of you feel that your life will never be any better, that it will never change enough to satisfy. I hear you say that ‘this is the way it has been and it will never change.’ Despair has settled in and you have settled.

Three days.

That is all the time it took for Me to overcome Hell and the grave–to arise in Power and Victory! I took death and removed its sting that death not have any power over you that believe.

I defeated the grave that it may not hold you.

“The snares of death encompassed me; the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me; I suffered distress and anguish. Then I called on the name of the Lord: ‘O Lord, I beseech thee, save my life!” Psalms 116:3-4

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; our God is merciful. The Lord preserves the simple; when I was brought low, he saved me. Return, O my soul, to your rest; for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.” Psalms 116:5-7

I wiped away fear, captured every tear; announcing to the Father that you are mine. Will you then remove the grave clothes? They don’t belong to you, if you belong to Me.

You see I wrought for you Victory.

For you to wallow in despair; not taking your place, nor receiving My Grace–it is a total waste of three days–given for you that you not have to waste–three days.

You have victory now!

So, are you ready? Get Set–

One, Two, Three–GO!

“For thou hast delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling; I walk before the Lord in the land of the living. I kept my faith, even when I said, ‘I am greatly afflicted.'” Psalms 116:8-10

“‘O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting?’ The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” I Corinthians 15:55-58

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

 

 

A Fresh New Heart

Good Morning Lord, how would you like me to start today?

With a new heart.

You don’t like my heart?

I love your heart, but one’s heart carries so much traffic throughout a day, that the next day it’s as if it is already spent.

I’d like you to start with a fresh new heart–every day.

Push the cares out of the way before you sleep; give them to Me. You’ll sleep better, mornings will be fresher and you will have a heart that’s ready for more–before we start.

When you have days when your heart weighs heavy, likewise will your mind be weighted down with a confusion of thoughts.

“Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad.” Proverbs 12:25

I came that you might have abundant life.

Not abundant cares, nor abundant worries but, life. So cast those cares upon Me for I AM, and I care for you. When you do that, release trust that I will take care of it–

I’ll take that care with answered prayer.

“When the cares of my heart are many, thy consolations cheer my soul.” Psalms 94:19

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. Casting all your care upon him for he careth for you.” I Peter 5:6-7 KJV

You receive your answer by faith, when you believe.

When you are faithful–full of faith, I AM faithful–full of faith to give. Thus your faith increases as your heart releases your cares unto Me.

Good morning!

Ready for a fresh start?

I love your brand new heart.

Let us fill it with abundant life!

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10

“Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” Psalms 55:22

“Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward being; therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Fill me with joy and gladness; let the bones which thou hast broken rejoice. Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.” Psalms 51:6-10

“I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I keep the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also dwells secure. For thou dost not give me up to Sheoul, or let thy godly one see the Pit. Thou dost show me the path of life; in thy presence there is fulness of joy, in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.” Psalms 16:7-11

 

 

Simply Be Loved

I AM pleased with your eagerness when you present yourself to Me. It delights My heart to see My children not reluctant, but ready. They know not what may come, but they trust that I will not disappoint. This is a heart that I can use and yes, this is a heart I will not abuse, for I delight to give good gifts to My children.

To those who love Me and determine to walk in My ways–no matter the cost, I lavish with BLESSING and gifts abound for that is who I AM.

I AM abounding with Love.

Settle in your heart and mind that I AM good. There are many, many that I AM trying to reach with this simple message–an immovable Truth…

I AM LOVE.

Many are afraid of Me, afraid of what I might do. I AM not here to trip you; I will do you no harm. I AM here to woo you, but I’m not about charm.

I AM all about Love.

Lavish Love.

If you can believe, then you can receive–Love, and if you can receive, then you have it to give…

Love

It’s who I AM; I AM here for you, be not afraid any longer.

Simply Be Loved.

“O taste and see that the Lord is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!” Psalms 34:8

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent his Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.” John 3:16-17

“He who does not love does not know God; for God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No man has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.” I John 4:8-12

“And this is love, that we follow his commandments; this is the commandment, as you have heard from the beginning, that you follow love.” II John 6

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Ephesians 5:1-2

 

 

Win What You’ve Won

When you are striving to reach a goal, how you arrive is irrelevant to the goal, but it is relevant to Me. I AM concerned with how you make your way through life. It isn’t necessarily on the goal that our focus should be, for the end will surely come, just wait you’ll see, but on how the race was won.

  • Was it fair?
  • Did you care?
  • Did you run it with Me?
  • Did you run it with glee?

I AM your prize.

How you live your life is what’s important to Me. You see, you’ve already won. You’ve already won your place in My Heart; that was determined right from the start, long before you were born.

  • But did you give?
  • Did you truly live, or did you wander aimlessly?

I planted in your heart secrets, have you found them yet? They are My plans for you to see your life through. But they are not written down for all to see. You will find them written in your heart, just for you and Me.

Do you see?

They call to you quietly, remind you to come and find the plans I’ve had in mind for you–even before you were born. Find them and win what you’ve won.

Begin what you haven’t yet begun.

“That which is, already has been; that which is to be, already has been; and God seeks what has been driven away.” Ecclesiastes 3:15

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. He destined us in love to be his sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace which he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.” Ephesians 1:3-6

“But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for he is kind to the ungrateful and the selfish. Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.” Luke 6:35-36

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10

“For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11

“When I was a son with my father, tender, the only one in the sight of my mother, he taught me, and said to me, ‘Let your heart hold fast my words; keep my commandments, and live; do not forget, and do not turn away, from the words of my mouth. Get wisdom; get insight. Do not forsake her, and she will keep you; love her, and she will guard you. The beginning of wisdom is this; Get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight. Prize her highly, and she will exalt you; she will honor you if you embrace her. She will place on your head a fair garland; she will bestow on you a beautiful crown.'” Proverbs 4:3-9

“I have seen the business that God has given to the sons of men to be busy with. He has made everything beautiful in its time; also he has put eternity into man’s mind, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

I know that there is nothing better for them than to be happy and enjoy themselves as long as they live; also that it is God’s gift to man that every one should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil.

I know that whatever God does endures for ever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it; God has made it so, in order that men should fear before him.” Ecclesiastes 3:10-14

“But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumph, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.” II Corinthians 2:14

 

 

With Your Whole Heart

Locate your heart.

Now, locate your mind.

Are the two in sync? Your mind should not run ahead of your heart, for your heart should give your mind charge. Likewise, if your mind is in conflict with your heart, then you are living out of your intelligence or emotions, rather than your spirit.

It is possible for your emotions to rule your mind if your spirit is not strong. Just as it is possible for your heart to lead without intelligent thought or for your intelligence to rule without a heart of compassion. All are examples of a man incomplete, for body, mind and spirit are not in sync.

I made you whole.

A complete man will take a stand against anything less than that–wholeness; the balance of peace in the inner man. There is quietness for your soul when you are whole.

Begin by locating your heart.

“For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.” Romans 8:5-6

“–know the God of your father, and serve him with a whole heart and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches all hearts, and understands every plan and thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will cast you off forever.” I Chronicles 28:9

“I  appeal to you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:1-2

“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hid with Christ in God,. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.” Colossians 3:1-4

“Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good life let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This wisdom is not such as comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, devilish. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, without uncertainty or insincerity. And the harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.” James 3:13-18

“As therefore you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so live in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6-7

 

 

Did We Pray?

Gather together what you need and we will proceed into this day. This day that seems like any other day, but something is missing–

We didn’t pray.

You see when you pray, I AM praying with you. I AM the Door that opens the Way to the Father. Your Father hears your prayers when you pray through Me–pray in My Name.

“So Jesus again said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not heed them. I am the door; if any one enters by me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.'” John 10:7-9

“I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.” John 10:14

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me.'” John 14:6

“–Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, he will give it to you in my name. Hitherto you have asked nothing in my name; ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” John 16:23-24

Learn to pray as you begin each day–

for you know not what your day will bring. But I AM the light that brightens your day, lifting the burdens along the way.

“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'” John 8:12

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

Many things hidden seem not to impress, but later become mountains when you’re under duress. Prayer roots out the smallest factor that could hinder the day–

you didn’t stop to pray.

“Catch us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vineyards, for our vineyards are in blossom.” Song of Solomon 2:15

“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving–” Colossians 4:2a

“Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

“And he told them a parable, to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart.” Luke 18:1

“May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:11-14

For in him all the fulness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.” Colossians 1:19-20
