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!

“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! A book filled with God’s Comforting Messages in times of trouble. All proceeds from sales, for the lifetime of this book, go directly to Canaanland Ministries of Autaugaville, Alabama. Thank you, for being a BLESSING in helping these men to restore!
These books are not my words; other than testimony pages, I didn’t create the messages, He did. 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!
