The Truth of Need

The Lord awakened me in the middle of the night, by speaking this message to me. It is a strong message, not often given, and it takes courage on my part; but I am just the messenger. It would take far more courage to displease the Lord and not relate what He has spoken to me. In pondering the fact that he woke me up for this, I realized that the act of that, in itself, is prophetic. He is essentially saying–Wake up Church!

The Truth of Need

There is a vast majority of people who simply don’t know who I AM–

It is wrong to assume that they do.

Many think that the majority do, and that they just don’t care, but this is not so.

Some haven’t been taught. Some might have been taught, but have forgotten–they were so young. A few have rejected Me, when they heard, but just a few out of the vast majority that simply have not heard the full gospel message.

This is a travesty to consider, when you think of the number who know Me and yet they do not speak of it–share what they know with another; let alone many others–when there are many, many, others in need of a seed.

Just one seed could save a life!

Just one seed, could grow into a tree to save many.

Many such ‘trees’ could save a nation . . .

Thus is the ripple-effect if one were to share about Me.

And yet, you say you have no need. Yet you are pitiful–wretched, naked and blind; for you don’t ‘see’ the NEED!

Turn it around–Plant a seed!

Please?

“He said therefore, ‘What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his garden; and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.'” Luke 13:18-19

“‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot, Would that you were cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth. For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing; not knowing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. Therefore I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, that you may be rich, and white garments to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nakedness from being seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and chasten; so be zealous and repent.'” Revelation 3:15-19

“And some one said to him, “Lord, will those who are saved be few?” And he said to them, ‘Strive to enter by the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. When once the householder has risen and shut the door, you will begin to stand outside and to knock at the door saying, ‘Lord, open to us.’ He will answer you, ‘I do not know where you come from.’ Then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.’ But he will say, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you come from; depart from me, all you workers of iniquity!’ There you will weep and gnash your teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God and you yourselves thrust out.” Luke 13:23-28

“And he told this parable: ‘A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. And he said to the vine-dresser, ‘Lo, these three years I have come seeking fruit on this tree, and I find none. Cut it down; why should it use up the ground?’ And he answered him, ‘Let it alone, sir, this year also, till I dig about it and put on manure. And if it bears fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.'” Luke 13:6-9

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. He who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I myself conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'” Revelation 3:20-22

Hello 2014!

One year ago today I posted my very first message on Wordscroll.

From that very first post, birthed out of obedience to God’s call on my heart, Wordscroll and all its wonderful readers has been an incredible blessing to me. So far 52 countries have been represented by visitors to this blog. And now I realize that, by the wonders of technology, I am enabled to ‘go ye into all the world and preach the gospel’. What an incredible and exciting time we live in. A time we can’t afford to waste!

“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation.” Mark 16:15

Every Christian believer has a calling on their heart from the Lord and the gifting to fulfill that call.

“Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them–” Romans 12:6a

I urge one and all to step out in faith to answer God’s prompting. Do you sense the urgency in the air? There is so much to be done and all are needed to do their part. If you simply take the first step, you will see the next and the Lord will meet your every need–just take that step.

“I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power in us who believe, according to the working of his great might–” Ephesians 1:16-19

Happy New Year Everyone!

I am so thankful, and I look forward to another great year of service to you, and to our King!

 

A Moment In Time

Time has limited man, but I AM not limited by time. You see, I AM the beginning and I AM the end. My Father knows the time, but you know the season. When you see that the tree is ready, you pick the fruit. If you wait, the fruit will be ‘picked at’ by the birds of the air and ruined or it may fall and become rotten. So it is with man–you must act when you see they are ready, ripe for harvest.

So many are lost because no one was there to speak a word in due season.

“But as to the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves know well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. When people say, ‘There is peace and security,’ then sudden destruction will come upon them as travail comes upon a woman with child, and there will be no escape.” I Thessalonians 5:1-3

A hungry heart unfed, will fall away unled.

You may only have a moment of opportunity to change a man for a lifetime. A sudden desire to speak a word or do a good deed may be the only prompt you receive to fill a need. Seize the moment before it passes by.

Will you try?

For yours might be the word that turns a broken heart to whole or you may be the catalyst to release a soul, but you’ll never know until you try. Your time is limited, but I AM not, so please don’t limit Me.

I AM the beginning and I AM the end.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” Revelation 22:13

I AM the prompt to you, for you to be impromptu.

A truth you can’t deny–it’s time to try!

“Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Go in, tread, for the wine press is full. The vats overflow, for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes, in the valley of decision.” Joel 3:13-14

“But how are men to call upon him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without a preacher? And how can men preach unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach good news!'” Romans 10:14-15

“Do you not say, ‘there are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see how the fields are already white for harvest. He who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together.” John 4:35-36

“Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest'” Matthew 9:37-38

“And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me. 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 28:18-20

“So they went out and preached that men should repent. And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many that were sick and healed them.” Mark 6:12-13

“And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, as you teach and admonish one another in all wisdom, and as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:14-17
