Be Waiting–Ready!

There is a Day of Reckoning coming on the Body of Christ. . .This is not judgement, for judgement was–to begin.

No, rather, this is a reckoning for idle words they have spoken–thoughts they’ve kept within–thoughts of evil and not good; even, thoughts they didn’t know was sin.*

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 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.” II Corinthians 10:3-6 KJV

For, you see, you are accountable for your intent and actions; you are accountable for your sin–accountable for within.

Yes, there is Mercy.

Yes, there is Grace.

Yes, there is Forgiveness.

–but this is not ‘license’ to sin.

For, any, can say they are saved but transformation must take place–to change the heart within.

My Blood is sufficient, yes, but that is where you begin!

Read!

Cleanse your mind and heart–by the transforming power of My Word!

“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 12:2

Daily:  Read. . . Pray. . . Act. . .

Meditate–to cleanse the heart within.

“Therefore gird up your minds, be sober, set your hope fully upon the grace that is coming to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; since it is written, ‘You shall be holy for I am holy.'” I Peter 1:13-16

I AM coming for a Bride, cleansed, prepared–READY!

“Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.” Ephesians 5:25-27

Would you be unprepared for your Wedding Day?

Cleanse the heart inside!

So, My Reckoning, is for those who do not wait for that hour late. . .

Who live as though it will not be–and yet, ‘declare’ they belong to Me. (Ephesins 4:17-24)

“–God’s firm foundation stands, bearing this seal: ‘The Lord knows those who are his,’ and, ‘Let every one who names the name of the Lord depart from iniquity.'” II Timothy 2:19

“Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same thought, for whoever has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer by human passions but by the will of God.” I Peter 4:1-2

“Beside this you know what hour it is, how it is full time now for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed; the night is far gone, the day is at hand. Let us then cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light–” Romans 13:11-12

I AM!

Do not be one that is caught unaware–that is not My Bride to Be–

Be Ready!

“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” Ephesians 5:15-17

“Therefore, be on the alert–for you do not know when the master of the house is coming, whether in the evening, at midnight, at cockcrowing, or in the morning–lest he come suddenly and find you asleep. And what I say to you I say to all, ‘Be on the alert!'” Mark 13″35-37 NAS

“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.” Psalms 1:1-3

*One might wonder, “How could it be sin if you didn’t know it to be?” Ever have a negative thought about someone or something they did? It may have seemed an innocent thought but God calls it judgement. You are responsible for guarding your mind. If this message seems harsh, read it again. It is His Love that warns all who call themselves, Christians, but make no attempt to leave carnality. He is coming for His Bride–‘prepare’ to be ready! (Note added to amplify).

Choice Wheat

I stand knocking at the door of their hearts; and yet, they don’t listen.

“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 3:20-22

I opened My Heart–allow them to come–yet, they don’t come.

The Seed was planted; it’s time to harvest. The tares have grown up with the wheat; for those that don’t know Me–it’s time we meet!

“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If any one serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there shall my servant be also; if any one serves me, the Father will honor him.” John 12:24-26

Are you ready for the judgment that must come?

I have room in My Kingdom, and I bid you to come–for judgment is not for thee; if you believe–it’s been placed upon Me–when you receive.

I’m knocking.

Open your heart to Me–for judgment is not for thee!

“Now is the judgment of this world, now shall the ruler of this world be cast out; and I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself.” John 12:31-32

Don’t approve? –You’ll be removed.

You choose.

“Another parable he put before them, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. so when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. And the servants of the householder came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then has it weeds?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this. The servants said to him, ‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’ But he said, ‘No; lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. Let both grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, ‘Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.'” Matthew 13:4-30

“For as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whom he will. The Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son, even as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him. Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears my word and believes him who sent me, has eternal life; he does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life. ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the son of God, and those who hear will live. For the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself, and has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of man.'” John 5:21-25

“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. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.'” John 10:7-10

“‘My sheep hear my voice and I know them, and they follow me; and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.'” John 10:27-30

Turn on the Light Please

There’s darkness all around–deep darkness. Yet, many do not notice, cannot discern, the cause or purpose that this might be.

“But the wicked walk in thick darkness, like those who travel in fog, and yet don’t have a clue why they keep stumbling!” Proverbs 4:19 TPT

What reason?

The gross magnitude of sin threatens to consume. Brave is the one praying in the dark–the cold, the night.

Turn on the light!

What is the purpose?

Time is running short–for all will see the Glory.

The purpose of the enemy is to push back the Light, but he has no righteousness in him. Therefore, he has no power to perform. He creates an illusion; for if he can persuade you to accept a lie, you hand him power. For it is Light–Truth that overcomes darkness, all else is a lie.

Do not hide the Truth–I AM!

Shine!

“Do not detour into darkness or even set foot on that path. Stay away from it; don’t even go there! For troublemakers are restless if they are not involved in evil. They are not satisfied until they have brought someone harm. They feed on darkness and drink until they’re drunk on the wine of wickedness. But the lovers of God walk on the highway of light, and their way shines brighter and brighter until they bring forth the perfect day.” Proverbs 4:14-18 TPT

“For God, who said, “Let brilliant light shine out of darkness,” is the one who has cascaded his light into us–the brilliant dawning light of the glorious knowledge of God as we gaze into the face of Jesus Christ. We are like common clay jars that carry this glorious treasure within, so that the extraordinary overflow of power will be seen as God’s, not ours.” II Corinthians 4:6-7 TPT

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

“Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you. And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.” Isaiah 60:1-3

“Light rises in the darkness for the upright; the Lord is gracious, merciful, and righteous. It is well with the man who deals generously and lends, who conducts his affairs with justice. For the righteous will never be moved; he will be remembered for ever. He is not afraid of evil tidings; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.” Psalms 112:4-7

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being changed into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.” II Corinthians 3:17-18

Where You Choose to Dwell

Rest in My Love–it is there for you always–even when you don’t feel it. If you will trust, in these times of uncertainty, you will surely find My Presence; for I AM here.

A cleansing must come to the Body of Christ–My Body.

The impurities of the world would cling to you. Continue to be washed in My Word, dwell in it!

Do you see?

You don’t walk through the Word–you dwell in it.

You walk through the world, but you don’t dwell in it.

Those who get the two mixed up, stumble–

should you stumble, become aware–assess your situation . . .

“He who loves his brother abides in the light, and in it there is no cause for stumbling. But he who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.” I John 2:10-11

Where are you walking, and where do you dwell?

It is a decision you make, for the path that you take.

It is a decision you make, to veer.

You decide!

Come–ABIDE

“–for once you were darkness, but now you are light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord” Ephesians 5:8-10

“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” Ephesians 5:15-17

“And this is love, that we follow his commandments; this is the commandment, as you have heard from the beginning, that you follow love. For many deceivers have gone out into the world, men who will not acknowledge the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh; such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist. Look to yourselves, that you may not lose what you have worked for, but may win a full reward. Any one who goes ahead and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God; he who abides in the doctrine has both the Father and the Son. If any one comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into the house or give him any greeting; for he who greets him shares his wicked work.” II John 6-11

“No one who denies the Son has the Father also. Let what you heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, then you will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is what he has promised us, eternal life.” I John 2:23-25

“Blessed are the people who know the festal shout, who walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance, who exult in thy name all the day, and extol thy righteousness.” Psalms 89:15-16

Signs of the Times

This past Sunday morning, October 11, 2020, my alarm went off; not my smoke alarm, but the alarm on my phone. It was time to get up and get ready for church. I am usually awake in advance of the ring; to spend some time with the Lord before getting up. But I had been awake in the middle of the night, and had fallen back to sleep.

I opened my eyes to see a thick column of smoke near my bed.

The pillar stood from floor to ceiling and was billowing up toward the ceiling. It was such active smoke, that it appeared to be coming from an intense fire; its origin seemed to be the wall, at floor level. There was only time to notice the smoke, shut off my alarm and conclude that my house was on fire!

I didn’t get past the thought.

It had barely registered in my mind. I hadn’t even had time to notice that there was no smell of smoke or heat; when the column of smoke suddenly swooped up and escaped through the ceiling. I watched amazed, as the last trailing wisp of smoke slipped out and was gone.

Wow!

Not your usual wake up call, but interesting!

A column of smoke is one of the end-time signs mentioned in Joel 2. The scripture is familiar and often quoted, end-time dreams and visions, but quite often the remainder of the verse is left off; the quote unfinished.

There seems to be an increase of visions and dreams in the world, myself included. And this is the third time that I have witnessed smoke in my house. But the other two times the smoke was higher toward the ceiling (again, no physical fire) and horizontal, rather than a pillar.

“‘Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken; then will appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven, and then all the tribes will mourn, and they will see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory; and he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.'” Matthew 24:29-31

Rest assured, He will return!

And the signs of the times are indicating, sooner, rather than later–

are you prepared?

Be Ready!

“‘And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions. Even upon the menservants and maidservants in those days, I will pour out my spirit. And I will give portents in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke. The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes. And it shall come to pass that all who call upon the name of the Lord shall be delivered; for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape, as the Lord has said, and among the survivors shall be those whom the Lord calls.'” Joel 2:28-32 (see also Acts 2:16-21)

“‘From the fig tree learn its lesson; as soon as its branch become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near. So also, when you see these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away till all these things take place.'” Matthew 24:32-34

“‘Therefore you also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect.'” Matthew 24:44

It’s Curtain Time!

I dreamt last night that I pulled into a public parking space and suddenly, as if a curtain was pulled back, the grassy area and parking lot beyond erupted into a battlefield. A small, cylinder-shaped tank, the color of medium brown or dark sand, came on the scene and began sending out explosive bombs. It was a size that would hold about 4 people and I didn’t realize it was actually a tank until it began firing; it was futuristic looking and was more like the size of a car.

A fierce battle ensued.

After a brief time, the window into the Spirit-realm closed and the view returned to normal. I was still standing there, shocked at what I had just witnessed, when a man standing by a car, parked next to mine, commented on the battle. I hadn’t even been aware that he was there. I turned to him and said, “You saw it too?” It was more of an exclaim than a question. And then coming toward us on the grassy expanse was a guy walking his dog, held by a leash. He called out to us, “Do you think it is safe to walk here?” He shouted that question over, with sort of a nervous laugh that didn’t disguise the fear on his face.

I had my camper in tow, which I haven’t pulled in more than a decade. I went back to it and rolled the window down, though in real life my camper does not have that type of window. In my dream, it was the old-fashioned crank-down type like all the cars used to have. The crank handle came off in my hand, with the window down.

Life is carrying on as usual, but in the Spirit-realm the battle rages on.

Life is moving fast!

All will soon ‘see’ and there is no turning back.

We’ve crossed the line.

Pick a side–you must choose whom you will serve.

Renew your life!

Choose Jesus!

He is the everlasting light–He is everlasting life!

“The great day of the Lord is near, near and hastening fast; the sound of the day of the Lord is bitter, the mighty man cries aloud there. A day of wrath is that day, a day of distress and anguish, a day of ruin and devastation, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness, a day of trumpet blast and battle cry against the fortified cities and against the lofty battlements.” Zephaniah 1:14-16

“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, godly and respectful in every way. This is good and it is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, the testimony to which was borne at the proper time.” I Timothy 2:1-6

“But what does it say? The word is near you, on your lips and in your heart (that is the word of faith which we preach); because, if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For man believes with his heart and so is justified, and he confesses with his lips and so is saved. The scripture says, “No one who believes in him will be put to shame. For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all and bestows his riches upon all who call upon him. For, ‘every one who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.'” Romans 10:8-13

“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 the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. He who believes in him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.” John 3:16-18

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23

Justice Waits

Do you understand that every thing created has its place, and carries on the business it was created to do?

It is a system that flows; morning and night–each has its purpose. (Psalms 104)

Man has disturbed the balance with sin.

No Rest.

Fighting for power.

Even the animals can’t find their place–

they are scattered, moved about, from place to place.

Upheaval

An imbalance in the world groans to right itself . . .

Only when man turns from wickedness will this be–only when man turns to Me.

For I created it–I could destroy it.

But no, I wait.

“For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God; for the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and obtain the glorious liberty of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning in travail together until now; and not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.” Romans 8:19-24

“But God’s firm foundation stands, bearing this seal: ‘The Lord knows those who are his,’ and, ‘Let every one who names the name of the Lord depart from iniquity.'” II Timothy 2:19

“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 12:2

“Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, with trembling kiss his feet, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way; for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.” Psalms 2:10-11

Rest for the Reverent

Tender is your heart toward Me and I AM pleased.

Trust unwavering.

A life spent in commitment . . .

  • Absolute
  • Resolute

–these words come to mind when I think of you.

Why then, does it matter what others may think?

They do not know you, nor do they understand the ministry I have placed on your life; for it is unique to you–as theirs is too! Everyone has a call; all are chosen–if they would choose, would give it their all, but many do not. They toil and fight with their life, unwilling to surrender for fear of the unknown.

But, I AM, what they don’t know.

For you know Me–I delight to BLESS those who love Me!

And I often bless those who don’t–in hope that they might turn and see that I AM Love. I AM the ‘future’ that they can’t see–

for in respect or neglect, I AM still there–those who bow before Me in reverence and respect are immeasurably BLESSED!

“But I through the abundance of thy steadfast love will enter thy house. I will worship toward thy holy temple in the fear of thee.” Psalms 5:7

You who bow before Me, are you still concerned what others may think?

I AM your explanation.

I AM your defense.

Bow before me in reverence, and leave the REST to Me.

“Why do you pass judgment on your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God; for it is written, ‘As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall give praise to God.’ So each of us shall give account of himself to God. Then let us no more pass judgment on one another, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.” “Let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.” Romans 14:10-13, 19*

“‘You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.'” Matthew 5:43-45

“But let all who take refuge in thee rejoice, let them ever sing for joy; and do thou defend them, that those who love thy name may exult in thee. For thou dost bless the righteous, O Lord; thou dost cover him with favor as with a shield.” Psalms 5:11-12

*Author’s note:  Some might argue that the verses from Romans have been taken out of context. The chapter is written in regards to opinions and disputes regarding food. I understand that, but placed it here because it clearly states the Lord’s heart, expressed throughout the scriptures, that we are not to judge another and we each stand alone before God. We are to build each other, not tear each other down or lord superiority over another. In the End, every knee shall bow before Jesus, Lord of all, and give an account of their life. Whether we choose to bow in reverence now or that Day when He comes again, He made it clear in this message, He is ‘there’ in your future.

Two new books available to help you in these challenging times . . .

“Comfort in the Challenge.” Published in 2019, and written in dedication to caregivers. A book inspired by God, in provision, before awareness of Covid 19. Read it to be comforted, and encouraged. All messages are spoken from the Heart of God as fresh bread. All proceeds from “Comfort in the Challenge” go directly to Canaanland Ministries of Autaugaville, Alabama. Canaanland has a wonderfully successful 40 year history, dedicated to helping men desiring to overcome addiction and find new life in Jesus!

“His Voice in My Heart,” published in 2020. A journey of messages God has spoken over the past seven years to bring healing and restoration to the wounded soul. In sorting messages for “Comfort in the Challenge,” ‘prisoners’ welled up in my heart so strongly, that I began to sort messages for this special assignment as well. “His Voice in My Heart” is filled with His messages to comfort, challenge and bring restoration; along with several inspiring true testimonies of God’s healing and provision. “His Voice in My Heart” is a book of your journey to freedom!

The messages are spoken from the heart of God, but are not meant to replace the Word; rather, they serve to lead you to it; to give practical application and encourage understanding of the Word. It is the Word of God that saves, heals and delivers–Jesus, is the Word. Included in both books you will find many scriptures for your study in the Word.

Both books may be ordered from, Nation of Women Publishing, found by clicking the link below.

Be Ye Transformed!

Empty out that I may fill you.

I’ve spoken of this in the past, but it is even more important now. In these troubled times, I want you to be cleansed and filled–a pure vessel; not filled with thoughts of trouble.

Cast your care upon Me, for I careth for you, is not a polite suggestion of comfort–it is a command.

You are not to wrestle in the flesh.

There are plenty of ‘suggestions’ the enemy would send your way, every day, to keep you toiling in the flesh–another day wasted–for my Kingdom advances.

Are you on board?

Are you listening to Me?

Listen for my commands, for I would not have you stranded–

Be right in step with Me!

“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 12:2

“In a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and earthenware, and some for noble use, some for ignoble. If any one purifies himself from what is ignoble, then he will be a vessel for noble use, consecrated and useful to the master of the house, ready for any good work. So shun youthful passions and aim at righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call upon the Lord from a pure heart.” II Timothy 2:20-22

“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

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh; That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. Therefore, brethren, we are not debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. 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.

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God; And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” Romans 8:1-18 KJV

“Comfort in the Challenge”

A timely book for this troubling season!

 

Notice the title. This book was 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!

All proceeds for Comfort in the Challenge go directly to Canaanland Ministries. A faithful ministry devoted to equip men to overcome addiction and find new life in Christ. Both books may be ordered from the link above.

The Day at Hand

Many look to the scripture in, II Peter 3:8-9, regarding the day, and think of it as ‘the delay.’ But they fail to see the first part of that verse, “A day is as a thousand years.” They don’t realize what I accomplish in a day.

The Kingdom is advancing at an accelerated rate!

Those who slumber and sleep will find they may not only be behind, but trampled under. For the Army of the Lord marches forth–I command their way; and I never sleep nor rest when advancing in the Day!

An outpouring of My Spirit, like never seen before, will come when you least expect it, should you not be ‘expecting’ more. Those few are growing in number, as more awake from their slumber.

No time to waste, for the time is now!

Be listening for my cue.*

“But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to usward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” II Peter 3:8-9 KJV

“Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming, it is near.” “The Lord utters his voice before his army, for his host is exceedingly great; he that executes his word is powerful. For the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; who can endure it? ‘Yet even now’, says the Lord, ‘return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; and rend your hearts and not your garments.’ Return to the Lord, your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love, and repents of evil.” Joel 2:1, 11-13

“Then he said to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.” Matthew 22:8-9 KJV

“Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them; But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you; but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 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. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.” Matthew 25:1-13 KJV

*Authors Note: I feel the need to express that I experienced a strong, Holy Fire, burning in my heart, just before this message came forth from the Lord. It was an intensity of fire to such a degree that I immediately began to search my heart to see if I needed to repent. I went inside and sat down with my notebook and pen and, immediately, a strong anointing enveloped my entire body and He began to speak. There was an intensity about the “trampled under.” I could see it, as well as hear it. There were those, so unaware of the Move of God around them, that as they were just beginning to awaken to it, lost their footing and were passed over.

This may seem harsh, but it is out of His tremendous Love for each and every one, that He warns to awaken and prepare. As I pondered this tonight, I was reminded of when I was in Israel. One of the miracles I experienced while there, was a ball of fire that shot down my throat. It happened so quickly and with such a force that I choked. I felt the powerful heat, but only for a second or two and then nothing. I wondered about it, but the Lord did not reveal what it meant. I thought then, that maybe He was increasing the anointing for the prophetic. Today the burning before this message, felt as a fireball in my heart. I don’t know entirely what it means but it is out of this, fire, that His message today came forth.  As quickly as it came, the fire lifted when I began to write; but the strong anointing remained for some time after the message was completed. I urge you to take, seriously, His instruction to be awake, preparing and watchful. Seek Him for your place in this mighty move of God; for you have a place, that belongs to no other!
