Into the Deep

You will indeed thrive in 2017

As you cast forth into the deep, I will remind you to take your anchor; for there will always be tempests and squalls that present themselves from time to time as you remain on the earth. It is the nature of flesh, to oppose you, as you strive to follow My Ways.

Your anchor will hold you steady when you find the sea to be rough.

Your anchor is the Word–My Flesh you must consume. It is a Spiritual Force, more powerful, to prevail against any typhoon!

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father.” John 1:14

“He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him. As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats me will live because of me.” John 6:56-57

For My body must be strong, as strong as Heaven on earth. And My people are to navigate, through and around strife, not stopping to engage nor entering therein.

For strife would pull you under.

“A fool’s lips bring strife, and his mouth invites a flogging. A fool’s mouth is his ruin, and his lips are a snare to himself.” Proverbs 18:6-7

Your enemy wages war to plunder that which is Holy, Sacred and True–dwelling within you.

I laugh!

How foolish the thought, that I could be caught or bought.

I AM, and I dwell within you!

“If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit which dwells in you.” Romans 8:11

So be not afraid to cast forth into the deep. Toss the rope, your past, do not keep.

Your future foretold–before you were born. A priceless gift, given to you, not to be squandered with toil and fret.

Your life untold, soon to be met!

“I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord.

Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after false gods!” Psalms 40:1-4

“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 12:26

 

Who’s At Fault?

As a hush falls over the world–there is a crack–a fault line hidden deep within, rising to the surface. There is a rumble–do you hear it?

Not many days.

Not many days and the world will hear it too!

The earth groans under the weight of sin.

  • Babies aborted
  • Children molested
  • Christians demeaned

That which is good thought bad.

Evil appears to triumph.

“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 8:22-23

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight!” Isaiah 5:20-21

“But the Lord is the true God; he is the living God and the everlasting King. At his wrath the earth quakes, and the nations cannot endure his indignation.” Jeremiah 10:10

Have no fear

For you are Here–hidden deep within My Heart. Far from the oppressors grasp, though it may appear you are in his hold.

You are Here–one of the Fold.

Rejoice you are intrinsic value–the value within Me; of more worth than silver, gold or copper. Value to behold–created in My image–your end already foretold.

For I AM the beginning and the end.

And thou art within–Me.

“For I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is, my flesh. I can will what is right, but I cannot do it. for I do not do the good that I want, but the evil I do not want is what I do.” Romans 7:18-19

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. for the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, indeed it cannot; and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” Romans 8:5-8

“But you are not in the flesh, you are in the Spirit, if the Spirit of God really dwells in you. Any one who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. but if Christ is in you, although your bodies are dead because of sin, your spirits are alive because of righteousness.” Romans 8:9-10

“If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit which dwells in you. So then, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh–for if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.” Romans 8:11-14

“For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the spirit of son-ship. When we cry, ‘Abba! Father!’ it is the Spirit himself bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.” Romans 8:15-17

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, not anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39

Note: The Lord spoke this message to my heart on August 30, 2015. I failed to post the message in a timely manner as I have been struggling over my husband’s death and my car being totaled the very next month. But the message has not lost it’s meaning unless it is ignored. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.

 

A Leading Legacy

A legacy you leave to your children’s children when you live a life of Righteousness, Holiness. These are My gifts–given freely to all who call on My Name. And yet, there are those who gladly receive Salvation but,

from sin they never restrain.

Little ones trust that you are leading the way, and it is you they emulate. They fail to see Me, for your sin blocks the view, of the one who would call them home.

If your life is a measure of good works and pleasure, no sin to captivate thee. The actions you speak are louder than words–an example of one that does seek…

the Father above, be it a gift of love to those children you’d raise to be meek. Therefore, be not wise in your own eyes, but look to your Father in love. For if you believe, that He will receive, your loved ones unto His Throne…

Then you would be wise, to see with His Eyes…

the damage that’s certainly done.

When you no longer think, that your actions can speak–then little ones no longer will learn

that it’s Me they should seek, or their future is bleak–for sin has no rest of its own.

Turn

Be My Example–

Lead My Sheep!

“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:15-16

“Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep his testimonies; who seek him with their whole heart, who also do no wrong, but walk in his ways!” Psalms 119:1-3

 

A Time of Direction

There is coming a time of direction like there has never been before. Children listening to parents. Teenagers teaching others. Disciples learning from My Word like it is their last day on Earth. Commitment is the key to be in the flow of this great revival of learning. A committed determination to grow and to utilize the keys that I have given you will cause you to advance in the Kingdom at a rate that you thought impossible. For you have underestimated your abilities, by understating My Love, My Grace, and the work of the Holy Spirit within you.

Your confidence must remain in Me–put no confidence in the flesh, for apart from Me you can do nothing.

My work within you will cause impurities to rise to the surface. You may draw back at this, as you recognize areas that need to change. Displeasing habits will be revealed–not to embarrass you, or to cause shame, but to motivate action. When this happens–

  • Work

Work at it with all your heart. Work with diligence and determination to be free. Always remembering that it is not your “works” that brings the release, but the work of the Holy Spirit within you–

  • As you “work” the Word
  • Applying what you have learned
  • Until you see Victory!
