Love so Amazing

The one that comes last, gets the best of all–

he gets to see the Beginning from the End!

Never has one seen anything so amazing–so spectacular!

Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard what has been prepared for those who love Me…

It is the beginning

from the end.

For those who don’t–it is the end and that’s final.

You choose!

“–as it is written, ‘What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him,’ God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.” II Corinthians 2:9-10

“You know that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your fathers, not with perishable things such as silver and gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. He was destined before the foundation of the world but was made manifest at the end of the times for your sake. Through him you have confidence in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory so that your faith and hope are in God.” I Peter 1:18-21

“For this we declare to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, shall not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the archangel’s call, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first; then we who are alive, who are left, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.” I Thessalonians 4:15-18

‘Comfort In The Challenge’

“You don’t have to look far to find someone coping with a challenge. It may be a friend, co-worker, parent or child. Maybe you need only to look within. The list of trials in life is endless–the challenge within. But God knows the need, and He knows the heart of the one you love–He knows YOU!

‘Comfort in the Challenge’ is filled with messages spoken from the heart of God. Inside you will find that God loves you and He cares about you, personally, and what you care about matters to Him. He wants to take that care, in exchange, with His thoughts of Love, Hope, Healing, and Direction. He speaks to the need, He speaks to You, to bring you–‘Comfort In The Challenge.'”

All royalties for the life of this book will go directly to the ministry, Canaanland, of Autaugaville, Alabama. Canaanland, takes in men that have lost control of their lives to addiction and crime. Their tremendous (40 year) success rate has often prompted the judges of the surrounding area to offer, Canaanland, as an alternative to jail time. I have met some of these men and they are so full of joy that they absolutely shine–truly transformed by the love of God!

Canaanland charges nothing for a year stay; including room and board for their families as well, if necessary. I find the true dedication of Canaanland, in surrounding these men with love, and the life-changing power of the Word of God, to be unsurpassed. All is made possible through the dedication and hard work of these men, and generous donations of partner support.

It is their vision, to have a ‘Canaanland’ in every state, and my vision for this book, to help them realize this goal. Will you join me in helping these men and their families receive a new life? Will you consider purchasing ‘Comfort in the Challenge’ for your friends, loved ones, for yourself–for Canaanland? The books are beautiful and I am over-the-top excited for you to receive yours!

Heaven on Earth

I awakened this morning to a vision of a man standing in a lake, about to baptize a camel.

And I knew the Lord had something on His heart…

Are you one that has participated enough to take a drink–only to save it for later?

My Word has no further purpose in your life, but to decorate a shelf?

My Spirit and Promises are dusty?

–Sounds much like the desert the camel came from!

Please dust yourself off and come follow Me. I have so much more in store for you, than that which you are trying to store!

What is in store?

Your Salvation–It isn’t just for Heaven!

So many think, that, is its only purpose.

Heaven is a wonderful place, but your place is here, now, in My Kingdom. And here, now, you were placed for a purpose.

Should I give your gift to another or will you open it and find your place?

You choose.

But remember–I chose ‘you’ for your purpose–not another.

Now is the day of your Salvation.

And…

It is a great day!

Allow Me to show you–

Your Salvation is Heaven on Earth!

“For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. Working together with him, then, we entreat you not to accept the grace of God in vain. For he says, ‘At the acceptable time I have listened to you, and helped you on the day of salvation.’ Behold, now is the acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” II Corinthians 5:21-6:2

“But God, who is rich in mercy out of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with him, and made us sit with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God–not because of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:4-10

“Jesus said to her, ‘Every one who drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst; the water that I shall give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.'” John 4:13-14

Supernaturally Placed

You will prosper, even as your soul prospers.

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” 3 John 1:2 KJV

Wash your windows that you may see, clearly, your future.

See yourself in line with My Word. You are not reading about others–I wrote it for you!

Trust that I know where you’ve been; I know where I want you, and how to get you there.

But, you must believe.

Stop seeing yourself as less than My best, for that is not how I see you.

I see you crossing the finish line…

Broad smile on your face…

Finishing your race…

Supernaturally Placed!

Let us begin your race. I will coach you–meet Me within.

Let us begin!

 

“–let us lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2

Ready or Not? Here I Come!

One will be taken, another left…

This is My plea–come awaken with Me!

Choose this time, as you think of My birth, to ‘re-birth’ your life.

  • What is missing?
  • What haven’t you accomplished?
  • Where are you going, and where are you now?

Examine the timeline of your life.

I haven’t changed. Have you?

“As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man. for as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they did not know until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of man. Then two men will be in the field; one is taken and one is left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one is taken and one is left. Watch therefore, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the householder had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have watched and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” Matthew 24:37-44

What’s On Your Mind?

I AM in all you do, you can’t extricate Me. I have a function in every season of your life.

Think on that.

“-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

“Every good endowment and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.” James 1:17

Man thinks on Me as only good and not evil; I AM good, but though I don’t create evil in your life, I amplify any evil in your heart for I AM good. Like oil and water the two will separate and you must choose.

“Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted with evil and he himself tempts no one; but each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin; and sin when it is full-grown brings forth death.” James 1:13-15

Like water and oil is shaken to combine, it may seem as though it works for a time, but this is an illusion that soon separates.

And like oil and water, evil separates from Me.

“Because sentence against an evil deed is not executed speedily, the heart of the sons of men is fully set to do evil. Though a sinner does evil a hundred times and prolongs his life, yet I know that it will be well with those who fear God, because they fear before him; but it will not be well with the wicked, neither will he prolong his days like a shadow, because he does not fear before God.” Ecclesiastes 8:11-13

An evil thought divides a heart if allowed to remain.

Friends go separate ways. Families split apart–You must not start!

“From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brethren, this ought not to be so.” James 3:10

Thoughts must remain, steadfast and pure, for your footing to be sure.

“Know this, my beloved brethren. Let every man be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger, for the anger of man does not work the righteousness of God. Therefore put away all filthiness and rank growth of wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.” James 1:19-21

It all begins in the mind.

“For though we live in the world we are not carrying on a worldly war, for the weapons of our warfare are not worldly but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every proud obstacle to the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.” II Corinthians 10:5-6

Think on these things.

Keep your mind pure.

“So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any incentive of love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.

Do nothing from selfishness or conceit, but in humility count others better than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:1-4

“The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God, and keep his commandments; for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.” Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

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

 

The Path You Choose To See

Do you see that there are two paths and yet it is one and the same–the path that you see.

Many see it as a fork in the road and they have a choice, a decision to make. But, in reality, it is one path. Your choices determine your direction, but it is one path; it leads to life; it leads to death, depending on which way you face–the choice you make, the steps you place.

Do you see then that moving forward only comes from being consistent in your choices? For if you are contrary, you turn away–you head that way.

The double minded man spends his life in the same spot; continually turning, neither advancing nor retreating, he digs a hole right where he is.

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all men generously and without reproaching, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.  For that person must not suppose that a double minded man, unstable in all his ways, will receive anything from the Lord.” James 1:5-8

All are encompassed by the life they choose.

One might say, ‘I am accountable to no one,’ for they are ‘the maker of the life they lead.’ Yet, when they die, many look to Me to blame, as if I had failed–as if I could be untrue.

“There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. Even in laughter the heart is sad, and the end of joy is grief. A perverse man will be filled with the fruit of his ways.” Proverbs 14:12-14

Man builds his life by the choices he makes, by the words he speaks, by the actions he takes.

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.” Proverbs 18:21

“Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom for the future.” Proverbs 19: 20-21

Even the food he eats is a choice. It will nourish the body and cause it to thrive or deplete the very life he’s been given.

  • Choose life or choose death.
  • Build up or tear down
  • Walk forward or stand still.

Blessing or cursing–you choose!

Choose life!

For every effect there is a cause. One tries to figure out–why? And would conclude–Because–this.

For every cause will be.

Think about what you will cause to be.

Choose life.

Choose what you want to be.

“Does not wisdom call, does not understanding raise her voice? On the heights beside the way, in the paths she takes her stand; beside the gates in front of the town, at the entrance of the portals she cries aloud: To you, O men, I call, and my cry is to the sons of men.” Proverbs 8:1-4

“And now, my sons, listen to me. Happy is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting beside my doors. For he who finds me finds life and obtains favor from the Lord; but he who misses me injures himself; and all who hate me love death.” Proverbs 8:32-36

“Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man and he will increase in learning. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight. For by me your days will be multiplied, and years will be added to your life.” Proverbs 9:9-11

“And he said to me, It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give water without price from the fountain of the water of life. He who conquers shall have this heritage, and I will be his God and he shall be my son.” Revelation 21:6-7
