Sow Your Life Into His Glory.
It is time for you to stand fast. It is time to walk in what you have said you believe
As you speak forth in the Spirit Who is dwelling within you, He will fill your mouth because of your faith.
He is pouring out the oil in this hour. He is sending forth the rain of His Presence.
The Wind of the Holy Spirit is carrying your voice farther than you can see or imagine..Even though you know not where it may be carried by His Presence, there is no distance that is measurable in the realm of the Spirit of the Lord. No one is too far. No one is hidden from His Vision. You are speaking into the realm of the Spirit of the Lord that is reaching far into the distant places that only He can see.
You never will know just how far your obedience is being carried, nor will you know the fullest extent of the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous, or the extent of the Lord’s propulsion of His Voice spoken through your obedience. His Word that He has sent is speaking over and over like the echoing chambers of the Holy of Holies. His Word will not relent until it accomplishes the intent for which it is sent..
Now, hear the Word of the Lord:
“I have seen your ways, and I will heal you, says the Lord.
I know the full extent of what I have sent. I know the heart of man can be desperately wicked in his ways of deception and the lies of the adversary, lying in wait to deceive. I am waiting for my servants to wake up to the calling I have sent them. I did not send my calling to you in such haste that there would be no wisdom that would heal you of the ways in which you have carried on. For I always know who you really are.
“Be not deceived, for God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap…It is high time to sow your life into My Spirit, to sow your life into My Glory.. As the Son said “Into Your hands I commend My Spirit”, so have I called you to commend your life into My Spirit, to walk in the true vision and calling I have been showing you, says the Lord.”
“For I am an all consuming fire, I am jealous over you with Godly jealousy. Stop now, turn around and face Me. My love will heal you of your ways,,and will heal you of your fear, for fear has to do with torment. My perfect love for you will heal you and set you free from it, says the Lord”
“In humility, and the fear (reverence) of the Lord, are riches, honor and life” The riches of His Kingdom, the honor of His Presence, and the Life of His dear Son.
“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the Glory of the Lord is rising upon you.”
Now, Sow your life into His Glory
From Weakness To Strength
What does the Lord require of you when you don’t seem to have what it takes to follow Him? It’s not according to what you don’t seem to have. It relies totally upon Who He is. His grace is more than sufficient for you. In your weakness His strength will replace yours. Therefore: Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not upon your own understanding of yourself. but acknowledge Him in everything you do and He will direct your path straight to Himself.
Present yourself, therefore, as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your worship, Be not conformed to this world but be transform by the renewing of your mind, so that you will prove what is the good and acceptable, and perfect will of God. For they that wait upon the Lord will renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as the eagle. They shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
A Tumbling And A Shaking Is Taking Place.
Many of you have heard the word “tumbler”. A tumbler can be a glass or plastic drinking vessel. It can also be a machine used to “tumble” steel or aluminum parts made in machine shops, or manufacturing facilities to remove “burrs” of “rough edges” from manufacturing processes like on milling machines or injection molds.
During this process the parts are “shaken’ as they revolve in a media such as small pieces of granite, to wear down the sharp edges on the parts. They end up being very smooth over the entire part with no sharp edges or burrs..
There are times over the horizon where a profound shaking will be taking place. Homes will be shaken to expose the sin in people’s lives, Workplaces are being shaken by the Lord where unfair treatment of employees is being exposed. Peoples hearts are being shaken where their thoughts are being dealt with by the Presence of the Spirit of the Lord.
Nothing is hidden from His sight. For He is the Lord Who Sees and the God Who Knows. Where sin has abound, grace will abound all the more.
The grace of the gift of repentance will be overwhelming all forms of wickedness, conviction is going to overwhelm those who have resisted the calling of repentance
“Return to Me, says the Lord, and I will return to you. Turn away from the illicit, turn away from the explicit, turn your back on those things that have drawn you away from hearing My Voice..
Your life has been tumbling down a path you cannot handle alone. .But the work of the Spirit of the Lord has been breaking off the hard lines on your faces. You are going the wrong way trying to do all of your “transformation” on your own terms. The only permanent transformation in the terms you have chosen will lead to your own fall
None of My Words, says the Lord, will ever fall to the ground. None of My intent will ever be left undone. None of My reaching will ever fall short. Is the Arm of the Lord shortened that it cannot save?
I am sending My Word to you so that you will not tumble headlong into total dismay, for the Son of righteousness will arise with healing in His wings. says the Lord”

Offenses Will Come, But So Will Grace.
A video was showing two antelopes fighting in a field in Africa. They locked horns and fought continuously, whirling around in circles, while locked together,,each seemingly trying to get the upper hand (or paw). Other animals were watching them as they fought.
Suddenly in the distance, a female lion is running at full speed from a long distance away toward the antelopes as they were focusing on each other in the fight. Neither one saw what was coming. She sprung upon them both, grabbing with a smothering hold of one while the other one sprang loose.
Many of us become offended by members of the church, hearing words spoken, whether directly, or from a distance that seem to imply that you are less than the kind of person you really are.The thoughts you may have as a result can cause you to have not only second thoughts about that other person, but can reek havoc concerning your value to others; bringing self condemnation, even angry thoughts about those who treat you and others in an unseemly way.,
That is precisely the trap the devil wants to entangle you with to pry your focus from God onto yourself and on other people. If he can do that to your life, he has succeeded in keeping the power of God from being effective in you. He has stolen your joy..
You have a mighty calling, a high calling of God in Christ Jesus. He has anointed you and set you in ministry. He has enabled you with power because the Holy Ghost has come upon you.
He has given you the Word of Reconciliation that breaks the bands of wickedness,, breaks every yoke of bondage, and lets the oppressed go free. And the one offense that has been derailing you is what the devil has used to cause you to lose your focus on what really matters.
Break yourself free right now, in the Name of Jesus, from the offense. Then go on the offensive yourself in the Spirit against those thoughts that exalt themselves against the knowledge of God. Resist the devil and he has to flee from you. You have been given the Keys of the Kingdom, and the gates of hell can not prevail against you. You are of God little children and that evil one touches you not. For greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.
All authority has been given unto you.in the Name of Jesus.Christ..Whatsoever you bind on earth will be bound in Heaven. Whatsoever you loose on earth will be loosed in Heaven..
It is your Father’s great pleasure to give to you the Kingdom..
The Lord has called you by name and you belong to Him
Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full into His wonderful face;
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the Light of His Glory and Grace.

Just One Act Of Obedience.
There are those of you who don’t realize just how close they are to their calling. It has been bumping into you every day without you realizing it. Your have seemed like a closed door because you are closing it yourself while the Spirit of the Lord has been knocking on it for what seems like forever..
It takes only one act of obedience to wake you up to that tremendous power that is waiting for you.
One act of obedience will open you up to the Voice of Majesty.
One act of obedience will translate you from the time of such despair to the manifestation of the Spirit and Power. There you will see that you had been depending on the wisdom of man instead of the power of God. It’s time for you to turn around.
The Voice of the Lord has been sounding off to your spirit, while your mind has been stopped up like a sink drain that causes the dirty water to fill up the sink. Things have been backing up in your mind and your heart because you won’t yield to the flow of the Holy Spirit’s presence in your life.
Can you say the word “Miserable?”
Are things starting to stink?
Things will continue to “stink” for as long as you wish to do your own song, if it really is a song at all.
Whose name have you been called by?
Is it some high and mighty self made name you have given your self to hide what you have become?
“All the day long I have outstretched My Hands to a disobedient and gainsaying people.”
Does this sound like you?
Why do you think the Lord says such a Word?
Because He is the Lord Who Sees and the God Who Knows.
We cannot take lightly the gift of repentance He has provided us. It was given to afford you the change that will transform you from the kingdom of darkness into the Lord’s marvelous light
.He is saying to you now:
“It is high time to change your mindset. The unresolved fear you have carried is not the calling I have given you. For I do not give to you the spirit of fear, but of power, and love, and a sound mind. I still stretch forth My Hands to you, because I am The Lord Your Healer.I still have been calling you by name to enter into the rest I have for you. There are those who have rejected My rest because of their own disobedience.. I call you to not be of those who willingly reject My Word but of those who come to Me because I am Mighty to save.
Come to Me now, you who are heavily laden, 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”.. says the Lord.
Just one act of obedience.
“The Fullness That I Have Desired For You”
Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. For he who dwells in the secret place of the of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I shall say of the Lord,: “You are my Refuge and my Fortress, my God in Whom I will trust.
Revelation is pouring forth for you that is giving you a new boldness and a new influx of power in the walk the Lord has given you. You had assumed that the insight you had been given had left you, that it has been buried under the trash somewhere only to be forever forgotten.
But the resurrection power of the Spirit of the Lord has been getting your attention. There is light flashing and peals of thunder that have been awakening you to take notice of the new position that the Lord has set up for you.
Though the enemy had come in,,like a flood the Spirit of the Lord is lifting up the standard against him. The standard is His own Presence that cannot be denied. It is The Word That Is Sent that has been transforming you by the renewing of your mind. It is the revelation in the knowledge of Him Who calls you by name, and calls you out from among them. It is the standard by which you have called upon Him Who is mighty to save.. It is the standard that is calling you out of darkness into His marvelous light. It is the standard that speaks “Is anything too hard for the Lord?”
I have known every attempt by your adversary that was assigned to you to bring you down. I have seen and I have heard every word that was spoken against you in the secret rooms that were designated as being unseen.
But I have been exposing them for what they are . I have been revealing these things to my servants, the prophets, to declare freedom to those who have been captive to the wiles of the adversary. No weapon formed against you will prosper. The words spoken against you YOU shall condemn. This has been your heritage, and your very own right to break the bands of wickedness, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke. And your vindication is from Me, says the Lord.
For too long my children have been exposing themselves to the ways of the world, to become ensnared again and again, to the secret sin that has kept you from the fullness I have desired for you. Is not My Word like fire? says the Lord. Is not My Word like the mighty hammer that smashes the rocks to pieces?
I call you to the repentance that was afforded you for the purpose of bringing you to the place of fullness.
Come out from among them and be separate,. Though your sins had been like scarlet, I shall make them white as snow. Though your iniquities had been like crimson, I shall make them like wool. For the Blood of Jesus will make you whole so that you can serve Me in righteousness again, says the Lord
I have seen your ways and I will heal you, says the Lord.”

The View that Proves the Point
Where has God placed you? Did the timing of events that led you there, show you where you really belong at the time?
Is it time to shine where the Son has planted you?
The only assurance that you may seem to have may depend on whether you have the assurance of things hoped for. The job you have now is the evidence of what you could not see before you arrived..
Treat the work you do have with the respect it deserves. People may not have the point of view that you have. but you are of the view that proves the point that you are called according to His purpose.
It may be true that not everyone likes you , or may even disrespect you. Your eyes may see that they are watching you and your walk with the Lord. But they are also seeing what they cannot comprehend. They can’t do what you do. They would very likely fall apart if they knew they were being watched like you are being watched by them..
Stand your ground. There are more that be with you than be with them.
Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.
The Angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, it is the evidence of things not seen.
They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as the eagle. They shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
The Name of the Lord is a strong tower. The righteous run to it and they are saved….
