I AM The Cure

Anxiety has become an epidemic of great proportion, but they treat the symptoms with a substance that will not cure, only pacify.

I want to heal them.

I want to remove the fear–wipe away every tear.

I AM the cure.

“With them indeed is fulfilled the prophesy of Isaiah which says: ‘You shall indeed hear but never understand, and you shall indeed see but never perceive. for this people’s heart has grown dull, and their ears are heavy of hearing, and their eyes have closed, lest they should perceive with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and turn for me to heal them.'” Matthew 13:14-15

Many expect instant answers for relief from the pain; invested a lifetime without any gain; yet give me just a moment–refusing to stay.

Yield to My Way; the Way to be healed–yield!

It takes time to build a kingdom and yet moments to tear it down. Just turn away and destruction begins–until you yield again–turn My way and enter in.

Resisting is the key–resist Satan and he will flee. But resisting isn’t passive you see.

Aggressively order him to leave!

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” James 4:7

When anxiety comes–command fear to go; order pain away. I didn’t leave you defenseless, but you must come to your senses–it’s all in My Word. I will heal your body, but you must guard the words you speak. I will deliver you from shame, but you must find the time to seek.

Yield to stay–I AM the Way you seek…

Guard what you speak!

“And to the centurion Jesus said, “Go; be it done for you as you have believed.” And the servant was healed at that very moment.” Matthew 8:13

“And behold, a woman who had suffered from a hemorrhage for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment; for she said to herself, “If I only touch his garment, I shall be made well.” Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And instantly the woman was made well.” Matthew 9:20-22

“And as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed him, crying aloud, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” When he entered the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, “Yes, Lord.” Then he touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it done to you.” And their eyes were opened.–” Matthew 9:27-30a

“And he called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal.” Matthew 9:1-2

“And they departed and went through the villages, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere.” Matthew 9:6

“And when Jesus entered Peter’s house, he saw his mother-in-law lying sick with a fever; he touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she rose and served him. That evening they brought to him many who were possessed with demons; and he cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick. This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah, “He took our infirmities and bore our diseases.” Matthew 8:14-17

“”Every one then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who build his house upon the rock; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.

And every one who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell; and great was the fall of it.”” Matthew 7:24-27

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” Romans 15:13

“Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways!” Psalms 128:1

 

Abide and Conquer

Loneliness seems to plague man in a world that becomes ever more secluded, in contrast to My plan for family and community.

I created man to love–an expression of Myself–to give love and receive love. And yet, so many seek or fall into isolation, declining for lack of love. Why?

Why in a world so teeming with life, would you avoid life?

Why, in your hunger for love, would you reject love?

You have armored yourself against love for fear of rejection, fear of hurt and the unknown. But what you haven’t known is Me, for perfect love casts out fear.

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and he who fears is not perfected in love.”¬† I John 4:18

I AM perfect Love.

If in Me you abide, you are never alone. And though man may reject, I will never neglect the one who seeks to know Me.

“Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. So we know and believe the love God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.” I John 4:15-16

Know Me on the inside–not from afar.

From afar I AM only Deity, one you don’t understand. Invite Me inside and we will abide and you may call Me, Friend.

“and the scripture was fulfilled which says, ‘Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness’; and he was called the friend of God.” James 2:23

“Jesus answered him, ‘If a man loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.” John 14:23

Never alone.

Then you will understand that it is the work of the enemy to divide and conquer. But you can abide and conquer him. Conquer fear with love, for perfect love casts out fear.

Have no fear–Perfect Love is here…

I AM Perfect Love.

“‘I will not leave you desolate; I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world will see me no more, but you will see me; because I live, you will live also. In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. He who has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me; and he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.'” John 14:18-21

“If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.

‘This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.'” John 15:10-14

“Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.” I John 4:7-8

“Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.” II Thessalonians 2:16

 

 

 

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

 

 

Fear Be Gone!

There are those who fear the future–they fear that what they ‘don’t know’ may come, and they are afraid of what that ‘might’ be. Others fear what they know to be, and of what they see.

But what you may not realize is that fear is a spirit.

When one believes something, contrary to My Word, it releases faith for that to come to pass in their life. This release of faith ‘opens a door’ and gives opportunity for you to be tormented by fear.

I do not put fear upon you, Satan does.

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” II Timothy 1:7 KJV

“But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from evil.” II Thessalonians 3:3

“For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, ‘Fear not, I will¬† help you.'” Isaiah 41:13

But again, he does not have that power over you unless you open the door and invite him, by believing and confessing that which is contrary to My Word.

I have given you authority over all powers of darkness. Nothing shall by any means hurt you.

“The seventy returned with joy, saying, ‘Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!’ And he said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you; but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.'” Luke 10:17-20

  • Command fear to leave.

  • Submit to My Word–believe the Truth; resist the devil and he will flee from you.

  • To be ignorant of My Word is to make yourself vulnerable to the unknown.

Commit to My Word, just as you have committed to Me. For when the unknown becomes known, you will not only realize, but utilize the authority I’ve given you and from you the devil will flee!

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” James 4:7

“Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are of a fearful heart, ‘Be strong, fear not! behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come and save you.'” Isaiah 35:3-4

“Behold, I will make of you a threshing sledge, new, sharp, and having teeth; you shall thresh the mountains and crush them, and you shall make the hills like chaff; you shall winnow them and the wind shall carry them away, and the tempest shall scatter them. And you shall rejoice in the Lord; in the Holy One of Israel you shall glory.” Isaiah 41:15-16

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace; above all taking the shield of faith, with which you can quench all the flaming darts of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.” Ephesians 6:10-18

“–and lo, I am with you always, to the close of this age.” Matthew 28:20b

 

 

Free of Nasty

Nice or Nasty? Both are behaviors of the heart; both seem common from the start. But things do not seem as though they do appear, for one behavior truly has its root planted in fear.

“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.” II Timothy 2:20-21

Fear can be complex, a given opportunity, for the one who has lost trust, to turn and heap fear upon thee. Nasty is a behavior of the heart of one that carries wounds–hurts that run far and deep–troublesome¬† even in their sleep; producing fruit that is nasty.

Do you know of one like this?

They toil and connive, their goal only to strive, against the one they see at peace–one who is nice and not nasty.

  • My Love will heal their wounded heart.
  • My Love will give them a brand new start.
  • My Love will cause the soul to thrive, of the one who seems only to survive.

You who are nice, you ought to think twice, about the one from whom you would rather run. For I call them dear, and ask you to lead them near. I wish to set them free from nasty.

Do you see?

Lord, could it be, that this one is me? But for your Love, there go I. I was the one with a wounded heart, yet your Love sustained.

  • I lost trust, yet your Love remained.
  • I acted out, when others found peace.
  • I, the one seeking release from nasty.

Oh Lord I see–that one is me!

Please Father, hear my plea, to complete your Love in me. For there is an area not yet free, from nasty. The room closed off–too painful to see. Boarded and still–please take it from me. I’ve held on too long–its grown much too strong. A place I can no longer trace–its root remains in me.

“Strive for peace with all men, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one fail to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” spring up and cause trouble, and by it the many become defiled–” Hebrews 12:14-15

Please hear my plea!!

My child, I have never left you, yet I needed for you to see, your whole heart you did not yield or give to Me–you’ve been holding back on Me. I can restore–will heal you completely, but it must begin with you. For I do not force myself inside–invite Me in to sup with thee. I will abide and you will thrive, as My Love reveals the pain, but only to wash away the stain, of the one who had lost their way.

“–No one tears a piece from a new garment and puts it upon an old garment; if he does, he will tear the new, and the piece from the new will not match the old. And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; if he does, the new wine will burst the skins and it will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins.” Luke 5:36-38

I Love you!

You will be brand new, when the work is through, but there yet remains one thing…

I can not yet begin, or ever change, the one who remains the same. To begin, you must admit and then submit to the One who Loves you so. Let go of blame and so refrain from holding back–you know. I will complete the work in thee, with permission from you, that I might see…

All that you’ve held back–

Forever Free

If you would simply trust in Me!

“Fear not, for you will not be ashamed; be not confounded, for you will not be put to shame; for you will forget the shame of your youth, and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more. For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth he is called.” Isaiah 54:4-5

“–for God is at work in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13

“Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect; but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brethren, I do not consider that I have made it my own; but one thing I do, forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Let those of us who are mature be thus minded; and if in anything you are otherwise minded, God will reveal that also to you. Only let us hold true to what we have attained.” Philippians 3:12-16

 

 

I Have More

When you step forth into your calling, you need not have the approval of men. It is wise to seek confirmation from trusted sources, but all will not agree, for all do not see.

There are many who hold Me to a standard that is theirs and not Mine. I AM so vast and the vision of man is so limited. I caution you not to see Me with your eyes, but Mine. I know it is not possible for you to see all that I see, but what I ask is that you ‘see’ what I give you; that you allow Me to be God of your life; allow Me to be more than what you see.

Do you see?

Limits are man’s way of being comfortable and an attempt to hold confusion at bay. They try to quench fear of the unknown, by sometimes stopping what I AM trying to introduce to them. This is all so futile and proof that they are not ready to receive…

More.

More of who I AM, and more of what I have called them to be. I AM patient, but many will never know or walk in the future I have for them because they limit My Ways and choose, rather, to be comfortable, ‘stable’, they call it.

I call it fear.

Do not let fear quench your call, nor that of any other man–allow Me to direct your path. You will find confirmation along the way, by the Holy Spirit speaking through those you have come to trust. For I have connected you to individuals who are open to My Ways, for a purpose…

to show you the Way.

Always check your heart, for it is there that I reside. Your peace will remain if you have chosen Me to guide you in…

the Way.

Now let Me show you something new–for there is plenty more to do.

I AM unchanging and yet ever revealing, more of who I AM

  • to those who will believe
  • those who will receive
  • those who trust that I AM

Let’s move, for there is More!

Are you listening? When you are ready…

I have More…

“‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; yea, and on my menservants and my maidservants in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shall prophesy. And I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth beneath, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke; the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and manifest day. And it shall be that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.'” Acts 2:17-21

“Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are of a fearful heart, “Be strong, fear not! Behold, your God will come with a vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come and save you.” Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then shall the lame man leap like a hart; and the tongue of the dumb sing for joy.” Isaiah 35:3-6

“And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Holy Way; the unclean shall not pass over it, and fools shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast come up on it; they shall not be found there, but the redeemed shall walk there. And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” Isaiah 35:8

“–Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils, they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” Mark 16:15-18 KJV

“And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.” Mark 16:20 KJV
