It’s Time To Return Home

It’s Time To Return Home

There comes a time when you hear the Lord say something to you and you wonder: What do I do with this?” When He says to me, “It is time,” all I can do is ask ”Time for what?” I sit here and wait for what He will say to me, and then He begins. “If My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; I will hear them from heaven, I will forgive their sin, and I will heal their land.” I have called you, and called you again, out of the gross darkness that has been trying to keep you in a plague of unrighteousness.
I have called you again and again to forsake the backstabbing of your brothers and sisters who are the servants of the Most High God, yet I still find you wanting in the balances yourself. There are still those who call on My Name yet still have the propensity to speak ill of those who serve Me with all their hearts.
Choose now, this day whom you will serve, and how you will serve. I call you to walk the righteous path that leads to repentance. I call to you to cast down the imaginations, and those high minded things that exalt themselves against the knowledge of God, and exalt themselves over My servants who serve Me in righteousness. Are you sure you really want to continue on that path you have allowed yourself to be led along? You have not heard what I want to say to you, because you choose your own way, allowing your own bitterness to convince you contrary to the wisdom that I have for you.
The path I have for you is not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord. My Spirit is as a tender dove, driven away by malicious talk, yet still standing by waiting for you to realize that I have a greater awakening for you than you can possibly imagine. You have kept yourself out of tune with My voice, while you believed that you “have every right to feel this way.”
It is time to turn around and return to Me. Turn your face toward Me, and I will show you how to forsake your own, old ways. Let the unrighteous man forsake his ways and I will abundantly pardon, My desire for you is to lead you along the path of righteousness for My Name’s sake. It is time for you to return home,” says the Lord.

He Is The God Of Miracles

He Is The God Of Miracles

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. The indwelling of the Spirit of the Lord gives you the freedom to walk in the power of the anointing that is upon your walk with the Lord.. There is a directive that is pointing straight at the heart of every believer that has ever called upon the Name of the Lord: “It is time to believe as He, Himself, has called you to believe”
He has called you to believe with the assurance of things hoped for, to believe that the evidence of things not seen are already in the possession of the One Who has called you by name and has assured you of it. We walk by Faith, not by sight..
Jesus said: Have the Faith of God. For whosoever will say unto this mountain “move” and believes that what he says will come to pass, he shall have what he has said.
This is not a “wishy-washy” faith, it is meant as dunamis power, the dynamic of the Kingdom that is explosive as the move of God is made manifest as the believer speaks forth the revelation of the intent of the Holy Spirit. For Jesus said: “Everything that the Father has is Mine; and the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My Name, He will take from what is Mine and show it unto you.
We are called to have faith in God as well as the faith of God. We believe we have been called out of darkness, into His marvelous light. It is by faith that we believe that the worlds were formed by the Word of God. It is by faith we believe that the Voice of the Lord spoke “let there be light,; and there was light, and the Lord saw that it was good” It is by faith that we believe, and from the heart, confession is made unto Salvation.
Everything that the Lord spoke came to pass with His own DUNAMIS power, that we can only describe with Greek and Hebrew words that help us understand and convey about this power,that has always been far above anything that we could ask or think.
But the scripture in Ephesians Chapter three shows us that God is able to do far above all that we could ask or think, according to His power, dunamis, that is at work in us. And it will always cause His Glory to be manifest in the Church when we walk in the calling He has bestowed upon us. And we absolutely do have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power (dunamis) would be of God and not of us.
Scripture says in Daniel 11 that “the people who do know their God shall be strong and take action. This also means that the people who do know their God shall be strong and do mighty exploits. Faith IN God helps us to believe that He will bring these things to pass. The Faith OF God is manifest because the indwelling of the Holy Spirit has given to you an unction, and an anointing, to possess the skill and ability to speak forth the vision that is about to explode onto the scene. He is the God of Miracles..He confirms His Word with signs and wonders.

In Jeremiah 32, and Genesis 18, is stated “Is anything too hard for God? No, nothing is too hard for the Lord.
Examples: Moses, Elijah, Elisha, Jesus Christ, and the Book of Acts.

What Does it Cost To Be A Prophet?

What Does It Cost To Be A Prophet?

Condescending, ostracizing, argumentative people, disrespect, loneliness, pain, rejection by pastors and church leaders and church members, and unbelievers, etc….. But the Lord gives love,peace, joy, longsuffering, gentleness, kindness, goodness, faith, temperance, self-control.. Yet, very appropriately, “There is a river, whose streams make glad the city of our God. There is a fountain that flows straight from the Heart of our God. I will rejoice, I will rejoice, and be glad”. Therefore, obedience is better than sacrifice. Great grace was upon the apostles. And that same great grace is upon you and I as well.

Become What You Have Been Looking For.

Become What You Have Been Looking For.

The Lord is looking for those who will become what you have been desiring to hear. “If a prophet has a dream, let him tell the dream. If he has My Word, let him speak My Word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? All the day long I have been outstretching My Hands to a disobedient and gainsaying people. I have not given anyone any agendas apart from My Own, says the Lord,; I have given My Word as wheat to be taken in and to nourish the hearts of those who are seeking Me desperately to find the way for their lives..
Stand where the wheat is being poured out like that which is poured forth like a grain elevator that has been opened up to empty out its contents, into the vessel that carries it forth to My intended destination.
I send forth My Word, it shall not return to Me void or cancelled out. My Word That is Sent will prosper in the purpose for which I sent it. Open your heart to receive what I am speaking to you. Open your mouth wide for I am about to give to you a new effective door where My Message will prosper in the thing for which I sent it. For I am the Lord Who Sees and the God Who Knows; I do not give My Glory to another, for I reveal My Glory to those whose hearts are steadfast in seeking My Face; says the Lord.”
“For the eyes of the Lord roam to and fro throughout the whole earth seeking those whose hearts are steadfast toward Him; to show Himself strong in their behalf”; says the Lord.

There Is No Safer Means

There Is No Safer Means

The Spirit of the Lord knows you, sees you, understands you, speaks to you, opens your understanding, knows your thoughts, hears your cries, and loves to convey your prayer language to the Father. You are the only one in the universe who can speak to Him the way you do. You have a language with Holy Spirit that ties your heart to the Father’s heart
There is no safer means of communication than the language only God can understand. And He returns to you with His language that opens your heart to the revelation that He has for you.. Such a mighty, and wonderful God that we serve.

He Keeps His Promises

He Keeps His Promises

“As for Me, this is My covenant with them,” says the Lord. “My Spirit, who is on you, and My words that I have put in your mouth will not depart from your mouth, or from the mouths of your children, or from the mouths of their descendants from this time on and forever,” says the Lord. (Now) “Arise and shine for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you.”
The Lord has given you the ability, by the power of the Holy Spirit to grasp what is the length, the depth, the width and the height and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge. He is making this known to you by revelation of His promises; promises that cause you to be empowered with the gifts and calling He bestows on you. He does not change His mind about these things; He fulfills what He says to you because of His love for you; the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. He promises these things for your life for It has always been His intent for you to succeed in your walk with Him. Therefore, He keeps His promises and fulfills them.
Therefore, in your spirit, your are enabled, by the power of His Word that He declares will not depart from your mouth. You now can Arise and Shine for your Light has come. The glory of the Lord is rising upon you, and the Glory of the Lord is being manifest more and more every day that you walk with Him, and walk in Him. For “It is in Him that we live and move and have our being.” He has showed you, O man, what is good. Now what does the Lord require of you? To do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

The Arm Of The Lord Is Being Revealed

The Arm of the Lord is Being Revealed

The Word the Lord sends breaks bondages, and raises the downtrodden. The Word of the Lord seeks out those hiding from their own fears, and answers the cry of the lost. The Word that is Sent dwells in the hearts of those called to the masses to pronounce the deliverance of the captives. It is being sent by the Lord Who Sees and the God Who Knows. There is a crying out from the hearts of the people who are oppressed by an adversary who knows no bounds of decency, but attacks those who are subjected to it because of their lack of knowledge of who they are in Christ.
The Prophet who has the dream must tell the dream. He must speak My Word faithfully, says the Lord.
For My people have been subjected to gross darkness by those who have hidden themselves behind a self righteousness, while those who have been called by Name who lack knowledge falter behind the lie of the enemy.
Awake now, put on strength; For the Arm of the Lord is about to be revealed to the sons of God who have been calling upon My Name, says the Lord.
I have been calling out to you to be led by the Power of My Presence, and to speak violently against the lies of the enemy of your soul. For My Kingdom is advancing, and the violent will take it by force. I have given to you an anointing that cannot be quenched. Do not turn your back upon it, for it is pouring forth like the torrential river that it has been from time immemorial. Do not turn your back upon it, for you will tumble in its advance due to your lack of focus upon My intent.
For the Voice of the Lord is Powerful. The Voice of the Lord is full of Majesty, says the Lord.
