There Is Wisdom In Humility

There Is Wisdom In Humility
.
(1) Then He showed me Joshua, the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to oppose him..(2)And the Lord said unto Satan, “The Lord rebuke you Satan, the Lord Who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you. Is not this (man) a burning stick (brand) snatched from the fire? (3)Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and was standing before the Angel.
(4)Then He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, “Take away the filthy garments from him.” And to him He said, “See, I have removed your iniquity from you, and I will clothe you with rich robes.” (5) And I said, “Let them put a clean turban on his head” So they put a clean turban on his head, and they put clean clothes on him. And the Angel of the Lord stood by.” (Zechariah 3: 1-5).
The Lord is saying “I have been calling you forth from among them, from those who have reviled you, from those who have been complacent about the calling upon my servants who are called by My Name. I have not forgotten the day when I became your first love, when you were cast down in your iniquity, and knew there was no way out from your hidden low self-worth.
But I have redeemed you from the curse you had been under, from the debauchery that held you captive under the glare of your adversary.
I call you forth from it all, from all that had held you down. Now arise and shine for your light has come, and the Glory of the Lord is rising upon you. I have prepared for you the truth, the revelation of who you are in Me.
I have clothed you with the robe of righteousness and no one can snatch you from My Righteous Right Hand. With Wisdom I have called you, for I know the thoughts I have toward you, thoughts of peace, not of evil, to give to you a future and hope.
You will find My Wisdom when you humble yourself, and pray and seek My Face, and turn from the ways that have held you down.
I am faithful Who promised, says the Lord,  And I will perform My good Word toward you to bring you to the place of rich fulfillment. Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says the Lord,
Now stand and see the Salvation of the Lord.
The Angel of the Lord is standing by
Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Take Your Position

Take Your Position

“Take your position. You are called to walk in the anointing that breaks the yoke, and sets the captive free. One who is called does not hide himself behind a wall but stands upon the Rock. You are the flag bearer, the carrier of the standard that sets the benchmark according to the Word of the Lord that is revealed to you. You are the Oracle, the Prophetic Voice that the Lord, by the power of the Holy Spirit, has called, because He knows how well the Word that is Sent will pour forth through your obedience.
The Lord has given you the song of the Spirit, the cry that calls out “Abba Father”. Do not remain silent, for the Lord has given to you the Keys of the Kingdom. The Word that is Sent will not fall to the ground . It will, with power, accomplish the purpose for which it is sent. His love will surround you, and His love will carry and protect you. Fear not for I am with you, says the Lord. And, I am filling your mouth with the truth that will set you free, says the Lord.

It Is Coming To You In Waves.

It Is Coming To You In Waves

I can sense a breakthrough in the realm of The Presence of the Lord. He is making known the ability to sense and know that a shift in your walk has been made known to you. Only the Spirit of the Lord can reveal such a thing. Since when was there any agreement between Christ and belial?
It’s as if you have been walking in a field of weeds and thorn bushes and all kinds of obstacles. Then you came upon a hedgerow of trees, passed through it, and entered into a field of ripe wheat. A gentle breeze blowing across the wheat is causing waves like the gentle waves on a sunny day at the beach.
The wheat is ripe for you to harvest like the Word of the Lord that is being sent to you. It is coming to you in waves being blown by the Spirit of the Lord. The Power of God is revealing to you that you are entering into the time of refreshing and the replenishing of your hope. You are being restored in your new knowledge of the boundaries of your life being expanded far beyond what your were hoping for even weeks ago.
He is showing you what is good. Now what does the Lord require, but to do justly in listening for his Voice, to love the Power of the Mercy He is manifesting through the Word of the Lord He gives you, and to walk humbly before God in the realm that He has caused you to walk in.
He Who calls you is faithful; and He will do it.
If a prophet has a dream, let him tell the dream. If he has My Word, let him speak it faithfully; what is the chaff to the wheat?

Seeds Of Greatness.

Seeds Of Greatness

The Lord is going to surprise you. He is going to reveal what is new and yet unseen. He will also reveal to you that the place that you left behind will stand alone as a beacon because of the impact that was made by your obedience to the Voice of the Lord.
You had thought that it made no difference whether your steadfast obedience was accepted or not, that it made no difference whatsoever in those who heard the Word of the Lord through your life.
But I will show you, says the Lord, that your obedience to My Voice has done far more good in their lives than they could possibly comprehend.
For I have shown you, oh man, what is good. Now what has the Lord required of you, but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
They have seen what is good in your life, but they had not comprehended it. They had observed what was good in your life, but they turn a deaf ear to it because their understanding had been blocked by the things of the world. It was never about you.
But the eyes of your understanding have been enlightened, so that you will know the hope of your calling. Those who have been indifferent to you have not, as yet, understood the hope that you have in your calling.
“For the eye has not seen, nor has the ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man the things that God has in store for those who love Him. But God reveal those things to those who love Him by His Spirit. Yes, even the deep things of God.”.
Seeds of obedience have been sowed by your obedience. Seeds of understanding have been sowed because of your understanding. Seeds of greatness have been sowed though your life, because “Greater is He that is in you , than he that is in the world”.
“With faith as small as a mustard seed, you shall order this mountain to be moved and it shall be cast into the sea.”
The mountain of doubt.
The mountain of fear.
The mountain of lack of comprehension.
The mountain of lack.
Whatever mountain that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.
You have the seeds of greatness which will cast down whatever mountain you perceive as being against you.
“Casting down imaginations and arguments, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. Bringing every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.”
The greatness of His Presence will present you to the King of Kings.

You Will Overcome Them

You Will Overcome Them.

The anointing on your life and on your relationship with the Lord will break the yoke of bondage on the many lives your life will touch. There is nothing that is too hard for the Lord to break open. There is no one that is too far gone for God to touch and revive. There is no shell around anyone that cannot be cracked open so the one inside can be set free
For this reason was the Son of God manifest; to destroy the works of the evil one.
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.
Generational curses upon those who oppose you, will no longer be a hindrance to you, For he who dwells in the secret place 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 You will I trust.”
The truth will be made known to you by revelation.”You have had little strength, yet you have kept My Word, and have not denied My Name.” You are a burning stick, a Goad snatched from the fire. The authority of the Word that is Sent will drive you forward in unity with the Spirit of the Lord.. Though the enemy had come at you from one way, he shall be scattered from you in seven directions.
Therefore, it is in humility, and the fear of the Lord that you will find riches, honor and life. Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord and He will lift you up. Your best will be found in the Presence of the Lord. I am revealing to you the keys of the Kingdom , says the Lord..

“Therefore with joy shall you draw water from the wells of salvation.”
“You will overcome them by the Blood of the Lamb, and the Word of your testimony.”

The Boulder Will Break Open

The Boulder Will Break Open

The calling upon the Lord you have been doing in recent days have seemed like there is nothing happening, while you have been doing it, but there is more taking place within the calling than you can see
It is like you have been swinging a large sledge hammer against a huge boulder, where on the surface you see small chips of rock breaking off. But the structure of the boulder is changing within it, Fracture lines are developing that haven’t been showing through, but then suddenly the boulder will break open and you will see the beauty of sparkling, radiant, reflective facets shining.forth the brilliance of its colors.
The Lord is saying: “Keep asking,,keep seeking, keep knocking. For he who asks will receive,,he who seeks will find; and he who knocks, the door will be opened unto him. There is more good ahead of you than you can see right now.
For the Lord is the assurance of things hoped. The Lord is the evidence of the things not seen. The Lord is the Author and finisher of your faith, and the Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”
Therefore seek first the Kingdom of God, and His Righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.
He is faithful Who promised, and He will do it.
