It is pleasant to hear words that are tender and sweet, but sometimes I must speak words that are strong meat!
The days are speeding up, and winding down.
That may seem a contradiction in terms, but it is a sign that the Time is near. Look up at the hills, for your Help cometh, and one Day I will come in the clouds.
“Redemption draweth nigh,” but I AM the Redeemer–even now!
“‘And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth distress of nations in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to take place, look up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.'” Luke 21:25-28
I will come for the redeemed . . .
Will I be returning then for you?
“Behold, the Lord has proclaimed to the end of the earth: Say to the daughter of Zion, “Behold, your salvation comes; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him.” And they shall be called The holy people, The redeemed of the Lord; and you shall be called Sought out, a city not forsaken.” Isaiah 62:11-12
Much sport is made over those ‘set apart.’ It is true that they have My Heart, but do you?
Or are you one ‘making fun’ too?
The Truth has been watered down. An attempt to make it ‘palatable’ for those who have no ‘taste.’ Mere fodder it becomes, no better than waste–and still it is despised.
“‘Salt is good; but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltness be restored? It is fit neither for the land nor for the dunghill; men throw it away. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.'” Luke 14:34
Don’t you see?
The Truth is a banquet–a royal feast for a king!
Man sees no ‘difference’ when offered the ‘floor.’ Why not show them the ‘Royal Staircase’ to more! If you are ashamed, and pretend to not be different, then you are living far below, and don’t even know, your place in My Kingdom.
Come and Dine!
Then you will have food to offer–the ‘offering’ of a King!
You must first be filled–the least shall be first–Come and Dine!
Where are your mockers now?
Oh, now, they’ve ‘watched’ you eating.
Oh, now, ‘you see’ they are hungry–NOW offer them to ‘share’ your FULL plate. You’ll never run out–if you continue to Dine!
I prepare a banquet for you, in the presence of your enemy. But a banquet has many guests, and there’s plenty of room. Why don’t you invite your enemy?
–to Come and Dine!
“I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season, convince, rebuke, and exhort, be unfailing in patience and in teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths. As for you, always be steady, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfil your ministry.” II Timothy 4:1-5
“–‘I know your works; you have the name of being alive, and you are dead. Awake, and strengthen what remains and is on the point of death, for I have not found your works perfect in the sight of my God. Remember then what you received and heard; keep that, and repent. If you will not awake, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come upon you.'” Revelation 3:1b-3
“‘Those whom I love, I reprove and chasten; so be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. He who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I myself conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'” Revelation 3:19-22
Announcing A New Published Book!
“His Voice In My Heart”
Listen to His Voice, as He speaks messages to you to affirm, heal, deliver and deepen your relationship IN HIM.
Also Available from Nation of Women Publishing–
“Comfort in the Challenge”
A timely book for this troubling season!
Notice the title. This book was written in dedication to care-givers; created and printed in 2019 before anyone had ever heard of Covid 19. I had a different title planned for the book, but the publisher rejected my title and suggested this title, that the Lord had spoken to her. We didn’t know what was coming, but He did! This book wasn’t written to sensationalize a current event. It was spoken by God in provision for a time to come and that time is now!

These books are not my words; other than testimony pages, they are all His messages. Listen as He speaks to your heart and takes you on a journey to bring healing and wholeness to your spirit, soul and body. These messages speak His heart, but they are not to replace the Word; they serve to amplify the Word with practical application and insight.
Read the Word!
Scriptures are included with every message. Take the time to look them up and study the Word. It is the Word that Saves, Delivers and Heals. Jesus IS the Word, and He chooses to have relationship with YOU!
