What Kind Of A Warrior Would You Become?

What Kind Of A Warrior Would You Become?

You don’t really feel qualified? There are people who truly are not. I’m certainly not qualified for many things. .What stops you or me from being qualified for anything? Are you qualified to be perfect? Very few have found that state in life. I can only think of One at this point in time. The closest we can get to that position is to study to show yourself approved according to the Word of God.. Actually, I can think of two ways.
1). “Be diligent to present yourself approved,to God,,a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth. ( Tim. 2:15). .(Study to show yourself approved).
2), Spend time in the Presence of the Lord and learn to practice His Presence in your life.
Now, which one do you think will come first in your life?.
In Romans chapter 12 it states “I beseech you therefor brethren that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God which will be your worship. And be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you can prove what is the good, and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
It seems to me that the first thing that truly has to be first in your life is to present yourself to Him.
“Except you be born again, Jesus said, you will never see the Kingdom of God” (John 3:3)
“Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord and He will lift you up.” (James 4: 10).
“But seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33).
Unless you yield yourself to Him, you would question every thought that comes to your mind about seeking Him.
For example: “I have to do this first”,”I have to do that first;” “I have work to do;”.I have to go to the store first.” I have to change the oil in the car;” I have to watch this program;” “What would my wife think?” What would my husband think?” ;”There is nowhere I can be alone!” “I’m just mad right now!” “I get frustrated every time I try to seek the Lord so what’s the point?”.
Doesn’t this sound like everyone you know, including you?
All these questions, and any others, are precisely what your adversary, the devil wants you to focus on and be distracted. That liar knows full well just what kind of a warrior you would become against him when you finally see what he has been using to keep you from being who you really are, as a man or woman of God.
Be aware of the devil’s devices that keep you from being all that the Lord has been calling you to be.
Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God so that He will exalt you in due time. For He is faithful Who promised, and He will do it.

The Battle For Those Who Don’t Know.

The Battle For Those Who Don’t Know.

“When will the intent of the Word I send you take the preeminence over your own intent for the Word I send”, says the Lord. “I have been showing you , oh man, what is good. Now what do I desire of you, but to do justly, to love mercy , and to walk humbly with your God.”
“I call you to not speak your own words on the Sabbath, or Sundays, or Mondays or any day that you walk on the face of the earth. I call you as My servants who are called by My Holy Name. My Word That Is Sent will carry you into the battle for those who don’t know Me and haven’t learned that they can call upon Me by My holy Name.
They haven’t learned that My thoughts toward them are thoughts of peace not of evil, to give to them a future and hope.
They haven’t learned that I Am the God Who Is More Than Enough..
They haven’t learned that I call them out from among those whose lives are hell bent on destruction; to be separate unto the Lord..
They haven’t been shown by example what it really means to serve the Lord with gladness of heart..
They haven’t learned that the Voice of the Lord is powerful; and that the Voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
They haven’t learned that I am the Lord their Victory.
They need to see that I am their shield and their exceedingly great Reward.
They need to see that as I call them by name, that they will be My prized possession.
Now come unto Me all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Come and learn of Me for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
“Behold I am standing at the door and My return is much more imminent than when you first believed. I implore you to study to show yourself approved, a workman that will not be ashamed at My coming. I have seen you in the quiet place. I have seen you in the busy place. I have seen you in the hard place and I have seen you in the seemingly peaceful place when you believed you were unseen and alone.
I am watching over you with Godly jealousy because I intend to show My Glory through my obedient servant. You are Mine, says the Lord, and I do not give My Glory to another.
But I will show forth My Glory through you when you seek Me and search for Me with your whole heart; says the Lord”…

The Gift Of Repentance Is Meant For You.

The Gift Of Repentance Is Meant For You.

If you really want your life to experience a real turnaround, if you really want things to change to the way God intended for your life to be, then you really need what Jesus gave Himself for and provided for you. He says in His Word: “Repent, and believe the good news.”
To repent means “to turn around.”
You may be asking “What do you mean, “turn around?”
It means to”change your mind.”
But you ask. “How do I do that? Do you mean I can’t have an opinion?”
Yes you may have an opinion, but it does not necessarily convince anyone else to change their opinion.
So what does it really mean?
To repent does not depend on opinions.
To repent means to realize that someone much bigger and much more powerful than you has made you a target for change.
“Target? What do you mean, target?”
Not in the sense of bringing harm, but to bring about the ability to change your path from eternal fire to being baptized in water.for remission of sin, leading to eternal life.
In other words; you have become the Lord’s PURPOSE for His shed Blood. You have become the very reason why He was born.’
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, so that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him would be saved.’
Is your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life?
If you don’t really know, then the word “repentance” is about to take on a whole new meaning for you.
It is with the heart that we believe, and with the mouth that confession is made that leads to your salvation.
It’s time for you to truly believe what Jesus said about you.
“Come unto Me all who are heavily laden and burdened, and I will give you rest. Come and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your soul. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.”
It is time to ‘Repent and believe the good news”of what Jesus has given us; The gift of repentance.

An Explosion Of The Miraculous

An Explosion Of The Miraculous.

There is a time when you know the Lord is showing you something but you haven’t been able to put your finger on it. Yet you are aware that you are on the edge of a discovery. Scripture says at first we see though a glass, darkly, but then, face to face. We are heading into a new headwind in the Spirit, and our sails that are driving the ship have shifted into the power of the change that is before us. We have been made more than conquerors through Him that loves us.
What the the Lord is leading us to involves the dynamics of the Kingdom of His Christ. And the Father will be manifesting His intent through us, the church, where Christ is the Chief Cornerstone. The shift is magnificent in scope and the Father through His Son Jesus, and Holy Spirit, is making it known what seems to be, little by little. But the magnitude of His working is far above all we could ask or think, and its power will be manifest through our obedience to His Voice.
All of us together have been made a spiritual house and He is building it upon solid Rock, and that Rock is Christ. All of us are to listen ever more so intently for the leading of the Holy Spirit in our walk with the Lord. A phenomenally powerful opportunity is ahead of us where we will see an explosion of the miraculous. because we have been resisting the enemy’s intent to prevent our hearing the Lord’s Voice. And our own intent to hear Him is bringing us into the throne room found in Revelations Chapter four.
Now we need to not only call upon the Lord. Now the heart’s cry has to become one with His intent to reveal His Presence. In the presence of the Lord will be the fullness of His joy residing in us. He will and does take great delight when we take delight in Him. Therefor delight yourself in the presence of the Lord and He will give to you the desires of your heart. He is the Master of the Breakthrough.

“Arise and shine, for your light has come, and the Glory of the LORD RISES UPON YOU.” You are rising from the ashes. You are washed in the Blood of Jesus..You are made in His likeness. You are covered by the awesomeness of His Presence. You are watched over by the eyes of the Lord. You are not consumed, you are loved by the Love of the Father
No weapon formed against you will prosper. The words spoken against you, you shall condemn. This is your heritage in the Lord and your vindication comes from Him.
Your victory has already been assured. Stand therefor and see the salvation of the Lord.

You Will Know More When You Yield..

You Will Know More When You Yield..

My older son is teaching himself to play the acoustic guitar. He already taught himself the bass guitar, keyboard, Hammond organ, and the piano; and others he is occasional still working on. He has excelled in his learning the ones he seems to enjoy the most. The more we can accomplish doing the things we enjoy the most,, the more accomplished we become in the things we enjoy.
The Lord has been teaching you things during your walk with Him. There are things we have come to excel in,while learning to hear the Lord’s Voice, and there are things we may tend to occasionally do because we can’t seem to see ourselves excel in them.
But the Lord is the Lord Who Sees and the God Who Knows.
There are times when the Lord has told me to write where I can’t seem to see whether I am really doing Him justice with what I am writing. But the obedience to the Lord’s Voice is the work He has begun in me, and He will perfect that which concerns my walk with the Lord. To love Him is to obey Him…
There are times where your heart and your spirit are so tuned in to the move of the Holy Spirit. There are times where you are not completely sure of how connected to His Heart you really are. But He is looking upon your believing heart while your obedience seems weak to you. But His Heart has been the One all along that has been giving you the cries of your heart that He has been longing to hear, where you are saying,: “Lord, I can’t seem to really say what You are trying to say to me.”.
But the Spirit of the Lord says;”My son , give me your heart so that I can show you the way.”
His ways are so much higher than our ways, His thoughts so much higher than our thoughts. As high as the Heavens are above the earth, so much higher are his ways than our ways, and His thoughts higher than our thoughts. (Isaiah 55)
So what will it take to know the thoughts of the Lord?
“For who has known the mind of the Lord that we may instruct Him” (! Corinthians 2: 16).
“But we have the mind of Christ.” (v. 16).
“Come unto Me all who are weary and heavily laden, and I will give you rest. Come and learn of Me and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and my burden is light.”. (Matthew 11: 28-29).
To Accede is the yield without question.

Thomas Downes

Giving Him Total Access

Giving Him Total Access

Speak to, and give, the Holy Spirit total access to everything about you. To accede means to yield without question. There is so much more to being given over to Him than you could ever totally comprehend., But the eyes of your understanding will be enlightened, so that you will know the hope of your calling, and what the glorious riches are of His inheritance in the saints.
For as it is written: The eye has not seen, nor the ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared, has in store, for those who love Him. But God has revealed it to us who love Him by His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, even the deep things of God
The deep things of God will be revealed to you by Holy Spirit, when you give Him total access to everything about you
Revelation will be your portion. The hidden manna will be made known.to you.
Now we have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit Who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God (1 Corinthians 2).

This is Rhema..
