Love Wins!

There is a seed, born out of heartache, that ‘appears’ to be repentance–an all encompassing repentance; as if one were to cover the events of their entire life. One cannot do that, one can only repent for what has been.  Rather, heartache, often brings forth the ‘fruit of sorrow’ and sorrow causes one to want to repent–to rid the pain, for it ‘feels’ as if all is wrong.

“For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.” II Corinthians 7:10 KJV

Sorrow not

For sorrow is punishment. To continue to sorrow is unbelief–if in faith you receive love, forgiveness, comfort–sorrow leaves. Without faith it is impossible to please Me.

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4

Sorrow not

I want to relieve you of the hurt, answer your questions, deliver you from the pain of sorrow. But you revisit the wounds, rehearse your faults, failures and doubts–yes, I see.

Yes I know…but do you?

For if you see and know so much, that you have evidence to condemn yourself, then why is it you can grasp judgment, but not forgiveness?

Until you forgive yourself, you cannot forgive others.

And if you do not forgive others, I cannot forgive you.

“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you; but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” Matthew 6:14-15

Now do you see?

For I do.

You must first begin with you!

Love yourself as I love you and then you will find that you love those too. Sorrow not–Love Wins!

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35

Let your repentance be that of, not loving yourself, then turn your heart toward home–home is where the heart is–I AM in your heart.

“–since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, they are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as an expiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins; it was to prove at the present time that he himself is righteous and that he justifies him who has faith in Jesus.” Romans 3:23-26

“–and I heard a voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them; he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:3b-4
 

Hey, That’s Mine

License is given for you to take hold of that which the devil has stolen. Be it family and friends, or belongings of life, he has no right–lest you be in strife–that is his only authority.

Should you give him priority–

Repent

Turn again to the Word and receive your cleanse.

Do not stay in strife, if you value your life.

For strife will lead you straight downhill. It binds the heart, right from the start–puts blinders on the ‘eyes’ who see; a deception that binds those who are free.

“It is an honor for a man to keep aloof from strife; but every fool will be quarreling.” Proverbs 20:3

“Put off your old nature which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and put on the new nature, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.” Ephesians 4:22-24

“Be angry but do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil.” Ephesians 4:26-27

“Let no evil talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for edifying, as fits the occasion, that it may impart grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, in whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, with all malice, and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:29-32

Repent and lay hold of the gift you’ve been told–that of authority.

For he has no right to the children’s delights. Bind him–take back what you see.

Say…

Give it to me!

“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.” Luke 9:1-2

“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 lightening 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

“Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 18:18

 

 

A Vessel of Honor

For a vessel to be filled, it is more than simply praying a prayer. When you pray the prayer of repentance, seeking new life, you are indeed given a new vessel–a vessel of honor, given by My Blood, given by My Love.

But, that is only the beginning.

To walk in this ‘new life’ you must be filled, but first we clean the cup. You see it is out of the heart of a man that proceeds words that defile, therefore, the heart must be clean–purified.

“For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, fornication, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, licentiousness, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a man.” Mark 7:21-23

It is My Word that cleanses, My Word that makes whole, the soul of a man rendered clean. It is the exchange of the old for new–that which is True; replacing all that demeans.

To some this takes a lifetime, for others it is quick work; it all depends on you.

For I AM always willing, always here to help and see you through.

The cleansing is imminent, there is no way around the process that must be completed. An active willing heart is always seeking Truth; Truth that awakens, to exchange old habits for a new posture of living. But, I’ll tell you a secret–I’m sharing My Heart with you, for I truly want to see you through–

  • Be willing
  • Be hungry
  • Be open
  • Be seeking
  • Be surrendered
  • Be honest

These are choices that you can make–actions you can take to hurry the process along. The beginning must be built upon, line upon line, but first let us scrub the cup; the old must go to make room for the new.

Prepare to be filled…

prepare to overflow.

For that is I AM, and you are a Vessel of Honor.

“Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

Flee also youthful lusts; but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” II Timothy 2:19-22 KJV

“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 5:37-38

“Your eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is sound, your whole body is full of light; but when it is not sound, your body is full of darkness. Therefore be careful lest the light in you be darkness. If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, it will be wholly bright, as when a lamp with its rays give you light.” Luke 11:34-36

“Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; defend the fatherless, plead for the widow.

‘Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord; though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.

If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken'” Isaiah 2:16-20

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.” Psalms 19:14

“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

 

 

Harvest Must Come

In the midst of chaos, I AM HE.

When all the world seems turned upside down, I AM HE.

Do you think I did not know this was coming? Harvest always comes. Bad seed brings forth fruit as well as good.

Harvest must come, but repentance will root up foul seed. Crops can be dusted to spoil the weed.

Have you had enough?

You who laughs in scorn. You mock, you spit on those I have borne. Enough that only those you see, are those that produce more weeds for thee.

Turn and know the One True God.

“And this is eternal life, that they know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.” John 17:3

Turn from rebellion–receive the Blood. It is the only way to change a life. The only way to end the strife.

The time is coming, I’ll no longer plea. The time is near, when all will flee.

My Father stands, announcing the day.

“But of that day or that hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Take heed, watch; for you do not know when the time will come.” Mark 13:32-33

Tears will shed, knees will bow. All will know, who’ve made the vow, it was worth the wait, to see the gate.

Tell Me, where are all your mockers now?

“Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. By myself I have sworn, from my mouth has gone forth in righteousness a word that shall not return: ‘To me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.’

‘Only in the Lord, it shall be said of me, are righteousness and strength; to him shall come and be ashamed, all who were incensed against him. In the Lord all the offspring of Israel shall triumph and glory.'” Isaiah 45:22-25

Bow before it’s too late.

Bow that, you too, may reach that Pearl Gate!

“And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each of the gates made of a single pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, transparent as glass.” Revelation 21:21

“Then I saw a great white throne and him who sat upon it; from his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Also another book was opened which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, by what they had done.” Revelation 20:11-12

And the sea gave up the dead in it. Death and Hades gave up the dead in them, and all were judged by what they had done. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire; and if any one’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:13-15

“–and I heard a great voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them; he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:3-4

“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense, to repay every one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.'” Revelation 22:12-13

“Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates.” Revelation 22:14

 

 

The Tree Of Life

As you see a clean page before you, waiting to be written upon.–so you see your life.

Much has been done to prepare a place for Me in your heart, that I may begin. You have humbled yourself before Me in repentance, that I may come in.

“For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation and brings no regret, but worldly grief produces death.” II Corinthians 7:10

“Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will exalt you.” James 4:10

“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.” Revelation 3:20

It is My Blood given, that I exchanged your life for new. You asked for the Holy Spirit and He was granted unto you. It was His perfect work, revealing in you, what could no longer be…what was not pleasing to Me.

“If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not live according to the truth; but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” I John 1:6-7

“For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” Luke 11:10-13

Through patience and perseverance you have given Me your strife; exchanged it for Love–My given sacrifice.

“For while there is jealously and strife among you, are you not of the flesh, and behaving like ordinary men?” I Corinthians 3:3

“Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.” Proverbs 10:12

“May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:11-14

And now you understand fully, what it means to take up your cross. To follow is not easy, and sometimes requires loss. But the love that I give, has not just been given; it gives, and gives more, the more you’ve been living.

“He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and he who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.” Matthew 10:37-38

“And he said to all, ‘If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life for my sake, he will save it.'” Luke 9:23-24

“And every one who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands, for my name’s sake, will receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life.” Matthew 19:29

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

 

 

 

Come Back Quickly

Let Me briefly explain to you the meaning of the word apostasy. I have those on My heart who once walked with Me and received blessing from My hand, but their hearts were shallow, as were their roots. A firm foundation they did not build, and they languished.

Their eyes and hearts began to drift to other things–delights to the eyes and ears. Their hearts became leaden and their delight in Me became wearisome–a chore–no longer captivated with My love.

A coldness and hardening settled upon the once fervent heart, now stagnant, indifferent. And so, they turned away.

Apostasy

  • The deceitfulness of sin entered in.
  • Love no longer captivates.
  • A soul no longer hungry.

Apostasy

Dead in their sin and turned away–a lifeless form.

Come back quickly

Before you reach

Apostasy!

“For this people’s heart has grown dull, and their ears are heavy of hearing, and their eyes they 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 13:15

“For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.” Hebrews 6:4-6

“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or his ear dull, that it cannot hear; but your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you so that he does not hear.” Isaiah 59:1-2

“–Truly, truly, I say to you, every one who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not continue in the house for ever; the son continues for ever. So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:34-36

“Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:6-7
