The Missing Truth

Much mischief is made with My Word because too many do not take the time to study. Someone hears a statement made and then ‘parrots’ it to another as if it were true.

Is it true?

Did anyone look?

Entire bodies have formed opinions and yet they know nothing about what they speak. They did not seek to know and, too often, halt another just beginning to grow.

Stop.

Find the Truth for yourself. When you know what you have to say–then speak. You are accountable for what you know. But, if you speak when you don’t know, you are accountable. Yes, I will hold you to account. Therefore, seek the Truth, that you may speak the Truth.

“The good man out of his good treasure brings forth good, and the evil man out of his evil treasure brings forth evil. I tell you, on the day of judgment men will render account for every careless word they utter; for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” Matthew 12:35-37

“Jesus then said to the Jews who had believed in him, ‘If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.'” John 8:31-32

Know what you are missing!

“”So, for the sake of your tradition, you have made void the word of God. you hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, when he said: ‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.'” Matthew 15:6-9

“Take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you guardians, to feed the church of the Lord which he obtained with his own blood. I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves will arise men speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them.” Acts 20:28-30

“Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by giving heed to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, through the pretensions of liars whose consciences are seared, who forbid marriage and enjoin abstinence from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.” I Timothy 4:1-5

Have nothing to do with godless and silly myths. Train yourself in godliness.” I Timothy 4:7

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” II Timothy 2:15 KJV

“Have nothing to do with stupid, senseless controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kindly to every one, an apt teacher, forbearing, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant that they will repent and come to know the truth, and they may escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.” II Timothy 2:23-26

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” II Timothy 3:16-17 KJV

“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And before him no creature is hidden, but all are open and laid bare to the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” Hebrews 4:12-13

“But according to his promise we wait for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. Therefore, be zealous to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace. And count the forbearance of our Lord as salvation. So also our beloved brother Paul wrote to you according to the wisdom given him, speaking of this as he does in all his letters. There are some things in them hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other scriptures. You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, beware lest you be carried away with the error of lawless men and lose your own stability. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.” II Peter 3:13-18

 

 

Adhere to Truth

Judgment is coming for those who don’t know My Word. For those who refuse to accept My Ways, I will move swiftly at a time that they know not, and there will be no more time to learn of My Ways.

My Word is the Truth

Anything that does not line up with My Word is falsehood. Do not allow yourself to be deceived. Adhere to My Word–keep it ever before your eyes; be proactive, not reactive. Warm, in a cocoon-like setting, I tend to your inner needs as you rest in Me.

The anointing of God is given without repentance to those who Believe

It is not earned–It is freely given

Freely you receive…

Freely Give

Freely give and you will receive!

“The Mighty One, God the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting. Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth. Our God comes, he does not keep silence, before him is a devouring fire, round about him a mighty tempest. He calls to the heavens above and to the earth, that he may judge his people: “Gather to me my faithful ones, who made a covenant with me for sacrifice!” The heavens declare his righteousness, for God himself is judge!” Psalms 50:1-6

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive good or evil, according to what he has done in the body.” II Corinthians 4:10

 

 

 

The Season

Mighty are those who have heard My words and choose to act on them. I give messages in season, for the proper time, but My Word is a season in itself. It is always instant in season and out, and so shall you be if you abide in My Word and act upon what you hear.

In the parable of the talents, I was angry with the man who hid the talent given him. He feared Me, and did not know Me. He did not seek Me, to know of My ways. Had he done this, I would have taught him what to do with the given talent–his measure, to increase him greatly in knowledge, wisdom and stature. Those who made use of their talents were given more. Their wisdom, money, and abilities increased. More was given–more is then required. The cycle continues for as I have spoken earlier, there is always more.

You will be ever learning and ever growing in stature and responsibility in My Kingdom if you so choose, or, you could choose to bury what has been given to you and see Me as a harsh, unbending, and unyielding task master, as did the wicked servant.

I AM love to those who love Me, and I AM yet love to those who don’t. I do not change, but I cannot abide wickedness and will not accept or tolerate it. I AM unchanging, remaining constant for ever. Man must therefore change to remain constant for ever!

I will be found by those who seek Me.

Time is too precious to sell, and yet it runs through your fingers like fine sand.

You cannot grasp it.

You cannot hold on to it.

You can only spend it, therefore, spend wisely before it runs out…

Before it’s too late!

Tis the season.

“Preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season, convince, rebuke, and exhort, be unfailing in patience and in teaching.” II Timothy 4:2

“And his gifts were that some should be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, for the equipment of the saints, for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ; so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the cunning of men, by their craftiness in deceitful wiles. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by every joint with which it is supplied, when each part is working properly, makes bodily growth and upbuilds itself in love.” Ephesians 4:11-16

“For it will be as when a man going on a journey called his servants and entrusted to them his property; to one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away.” “Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me five talents; here I have made five talents more.’ His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your master. And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me two talents; here I have made two talents more.’ His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your master.’ He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not winnow; so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.’ But his master answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sowed, and gather where I have not winnowed? Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. So take the talent from him, and give it to him who has the ten talents. For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away. And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.'” Matthew 25:14-15, 19-30

“The Lord is not slow about his promise as some count slowness, but is forbearing toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fire, and the earth and the works that are upon it will be burned up. Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of persons ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be kindled and dissolved, and the elements will melt with fire! But according to his promise we wait for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.” II Peter 3:9-13

“For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those that do evil.” I Peter 3:12

 

The Hidden Nugget

Relax your fingernails–they are digging in too hard. You need to trust Me more. I AM sufficient for you in all things.

I complete you.

Allow Me to direct your day, before you get ‘caught away’ in various tasks that may keep you busy, but may not be productive toward your goal–that of your call.

  • Wisdom is the key that opens the door of understanding.
  • Seek wisdom–call for it in prayer.
  • Study My Word for nuggets of Truth, hidden in plain sight.

So much is lost when one fails to pray and listen within before opening the Word. For if you would make this your practice, I will guide you as you read, and you will find great fulfillment in the scriptures–the living Word. It shall become alive within you as you eat of it–the life-giving Word. Manna from Heaven. You will find your study time will no longer be a drudgery, but an anticipated event, for it will satisfy and settle your heart.

If you love Me, then love My Word. For we are one and the same. Food for your soul–the Living Word.

Words for life

Words to live by–for I AM Life.

I AM

A hidden nugget in plain sight!

“Thou dost keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee. Trust in the Lord for ever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.” Isaiah 26:3-4

“My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you cry out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures; then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. for the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and preserving the way of his saints. Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path; for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; discretion will watch over you; understanding will guard you; delivering you from the way of evil, from men of perverted speech–” Proverbs 2:1-12

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

“Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gets understanding, for the gain from it is better than gain from silver and its profit better than gold. She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her; those who hold her fast are called happy.” Proverbs 3:13-18

“The Lord by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding he established the heavens; by his knowledge the deeps broke forth, and the clouds drop down the dew. My son, keep sound wisdom and discretion; let them not escape from your sight, and they will be life for your soul and adornment for your neck. Then you will walk on your way securely and your foot will not stumble. If you sit down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.” Proverbs 3:19-24

“–“Let you heart hold fast my words; keep my commandments, and live; do not forget, and do not turn away from the words of my mouth. Get wisdom; get insight. Do not forsake her, and she will keep you; love her, and she will guard you. the beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight. Prize her highly, and she will exalt you; she will honor you if you embrace her. She will place on your head a fair garland; she will bestow on you a beautiful crown.” Proverbs 4:4b-9

“Make me to know thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me, for thou art the God of my salvation; for thee I wait all the day long.” Psalms 25:4-5

“The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; thou holdest my lot. The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I keep the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also dwells secure.” “Thou dost show me the path of life; in thy presence there is fulness of joy, in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.” Psalms 16:5-9,11

“You have been born anew, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God–” I Peter 1:23

“–whoever keeps his word, in him truly love for God is perfected. By this we may be sure that we are in him: he who says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.” I John 2:5-6

“O the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?” “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory for ever. Amen.” Romans 11:33-36

“Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’ Jesus then said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven; my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven, and gives life to the world.’ They said to him ‘Lord, give us this bread always.’ Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life; he who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst.'” John 6:31-35

“May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.” II Thessalonians 3:5

 

You Are Powerful!

Absolute confidence comes from knowing who you are in Christ–the anointing, which is your power. You are not to put your trust in the anointing, but to put your trust in Me; for I AM, and if you find your security in the I AM, the anointing will surely flow.

Knowing who you are and knowing ‘who you are’…

are two different things.

You can know your name, and receive your surname from your family line, but until you dig into generations of family dynamics you know very little of who you are. Dig deeply into who I AM, to find who you are, and then you will know your stature, for it comes from within–it comes from Me.

I AM your core power, the strength within you–no matter what you face in life…

I AM your strength.

I AM your answer.

I AM

You will do well to be prepared and not caught off balance when that strength is needed. Find Me within

I AM Strength, I AM Love, and if I AM your core power, that is who you are–full of power.

You are–

Powerful!

You know that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your fathers, not with perishable things such as silver or 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

“You have been born anew, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God–” I Peter 1:23

“–the anointing which you received from him abides in you, and you have no need that any one should teach you; as his anointing teaches you about everything, and is true, and is no lie, just as it has taught you, abide in him.” I John 2:27

“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of passion, and become partakers of the divine nature.” I Peter 1:3-4

“–I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with might through his Spirit in the inner man, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fulness of God. ” Ephesians 3:14-19

“The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts; so I am helped, and my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him. The Lord is the strength of his people, he is the saving refuge of his anointed.” Psalms 28:7-8

“Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21

 

Just Give

“I give what I can.”

“I do the best I can but, you know, times are hard.”

These are statements I hear often, and have for many years. It seems the times are always hard, but I’m not asking you to give, just when the times are good; I am requiring you to give when the times are hard. I don’t want you to give what you can. Rather, I expect you to give what you can’t, because I ‘can‘ and that is faith.

If you give to Me first, when it would seem that there won’t be enough, but you give out of obedience anyway, because the word says to; then I, in turn, will give out of obedience, because My Word says so. Did it ever occur to you that I obey the Word too? I was obedient unto death for you. Will you be obedient unto life for Me?

For I don’t ask for your money to strip you of your lifestyle and cause you poverty. I ask you to give, to give back to you, and give you then, ability

  • to grow and increase
  • all your needs met
  • all My needs met
  • to give more

You give and are, in turn, blessed and you then bless. You’re blessed more, and you give more, until one day you’ll find that you are overtaken with blessings, and you will laugh in delight that My Word is right. What I knew all along, that it’s right where you belong…

Protected in My Blessing.

But it all begins with giving, when you don’t think you have enough.

In these hard times…

I haven’t changed.

Just give!

“And if you obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments which I command you this day, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God.” Deuteronomy 28:1-2 (See vs. 1-14)

“Bring the full tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house; and thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you an overflowing blessing. I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of your soil; and your vine in the field shall not fail to bear, says the Lord of hosts. Then all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a land of delight, says the Lord of hosts.” Malachi 3:10-12

“give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For the measure you give will be the measure you get back.” Luke 6:38

“Trust in the Lord and do good; so you will dwell in the land, and enjoy security. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart” Psalms 37:3-4″With a free-will offering I will sacrifice to thee; I will give thanks to thy name, O Lord, for it is good. For thou hast delivered me from every trouble, and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies.” Psalms 54:6-7

“The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.” Proverbs 10:22

“Praise the Lord. Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in his commandments! His descendants will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Wealth and riches are in his house; and his righteousness endures forever. 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 112:1-7

“He who observes the wind will not sow; and he who regards the clouds will not reap.” Ecclesiastes 11:4

“The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.” Psalms 34:10

 

Jesus Is Lord!

Be it known that I am not an existentialist, but a Christian. There was an earlier comment that may have caused some confusion. I receive these messages from the Father God and His Son, Jesus Christ, as spoken to my heart and all scripture is from the Holy Bible. They are written to you as if spoken to you from God, because they are spoken to me that way. I listen and write what I ‘hear’ in my heart.

I apologize to my blogging community for any unrest or confusion I may have caused. My heart is simply to be obedient and bring His messages and the Word of God to you as fresh bread. It is what He has called me to do and I delight to do His will!

There will be another message posted today, look for it and be blessed!

Thank you all for visiting my posts and to all my followers and those who have ‘liked’ my posts, thank you!

God’s blessings to you all,

L.J.O’Neil
