I AM ~Says The LORD

I Am your GOD,

your Heavenly Father,

your Prince of Peace,

your El Shaddai.

I love you with a perfect love that will never leave you or forsake you,

but will be with you through all eternity.

I Am the Great Jehovah,

Who is, Who was and Who is to come.

Your Prince of Peace.

Perfect in all My ways.

I Am just and upright,

full of mercy and loving-kindness.

There is no turning in Me,

but that which I have spoken will surely come to pass.

For I will not delay, but will accomplish all that I have purposed to do.

I Am a GOD of recompense and I will do what I have declared.

I will be worshiped among the heathen.

I will be exalted among My created work.

There is no one like unto Me, the Most High GOD.

From everlasting to everlasting, I Am GOD.

Beside me there is no other GOD.

Who is like unto the Most High GOD?

With whom shall you compare Me?

I Remember Water

I remember water.

How could I forget it?

I remember drowning in a pool as a child.

It scared me, it scarred me.

Water is the enemy.

I saw myself submerged in the water.

I saw myself struggle to swim,

Struggle to get out,

Struggle to get free,

Struggle to breathe….

Then I saw nothing.

But I felt a strong hand grab hold of me.

It yanked me from my water-filled coffin.

I remember seeing the face of the owner of this hand.

It was my reflection,

Or perhaps I was the reflection and he the original.

My father.

I coughed.

Coughed.

Coughed.

Gasped.

And coughed.

And gasped.

And coughed.

And gasped.

To the same rhythm that I had when I was pulled from my first liquid-filled chamber.

My mother.

I wonder if her body shivered as the soul of her child began to leave this world,

the same way it shivered when she first discovered another soul forming in her body.

I remember water,

How could I forget it?

I was born from water

Bathed in water

Filled with water

Killed by water.

An Open Door (Final Call)

The door is opened for you to walk through.  Choose ye this day whether you will enter in or remain on the outside of My will and desire for you. stock-photo-rear-view-of-woman-with-hands-up-entering-opened-door-323934392.jpg (450×380)But know this, if you will not enter in at this time, the door will be shut and you will in no wise later be able to enter into this realm of supernatural power and anointing.

Be not deceived, My Spirit will not always strive with man but will flow through those who are willing to receive Him as sovereign over all their affairs of life.

Trust Me now to want only the best for your life that you will not be deceived into thinking there is another appointed time than now.

For I say unto you with all certainty that there is no other day but Today that is being offered to you to leave off all cares for your life and to enter into the open door set before you.

The time is now. The choice is Today.

Count the cost and then decide; for once you have put your hand to the plough there is no time to look back to what you have given up to follow Me.

Hear My heart to you to come, take up your cross and follow Me. I bid you come, even now come that My plans may prevail in your lives to be Holy vessels of honor unto Me.

There is much to be done and little time to do it. Therefore, the urgency of the hour presents the urgency of the call to come.

I have even now begun to draw women unto you that are waiting now to enter into your doors, but they must wait until I receive your answer “yea or nay” to My call to come.

But know this, no hasty answer will suffice, for I will not give my women over into the hands of backbiting, gain seeking, manipulators, but into the hands of compassionate, caring women who are filled with My love and heart.

This is not the time for games but for Holy Spirit filled and led lives, committed to those without, seeking entrance into My Rest.

Again I say, count the cost to those who will come and receive of Mine that you may impart it to others without cost – for freely you receive and freely you must give. For I Am your exceeding great reward.

Lo, I come through the volume of the scriptures unto My own that I may gather you unto myself that where I am you may be also.

Go! I say again, come that you may go.

I Am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last. Amen.

The Month of Unsolicited Help

Luke 1:25-28 – Unsolicited Help

UnsolicitedGiven or supplied without being requested or asked for.

In the above scripture, the Bible tells us:

 That the Angel Gabriel was sent by God.

 The Angel was sent to a particular city and a particular woman in that city.

 The Angel came to deliver what can be considered astounding news – easily the greatest news anyone has ever received.

However, we will notice that the recipient of this news – Mary – did not pray for such news.

In fact, she had other plans of her own (to get married to her husband to-be Joseph and start a family).

But the Angel Gabriel came and announced the great news and the plan of God for her.

And her life never remained the same again.

What can we learn?

 Mary did not pray for this news she just received.

The help she received was completely unsolicited.

 She received this news and this help from God solely based on the decision of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

 When that news came, it completely disrupted her own plans and launched her on a different plan – far better than what she had planned for herself.

Other examples of unsolicited help from God:

The man by the pool of Bethesda – John 5:1-9

 There was at the pool of Bethesda many impotent folk (many people that needed help).

 Among this crowd of sick people, there was a man also at the pool who had been an invalid for 38 years.

 Jesus saw him and singled him out for healing.

This man did not solicit for help; the help he received was volunteered by Jesus.

 This man had his own agenda (to get into the water first after the angel had moved the water).

 But because he was favored by God, help came for him and that help altered permanently his own plan.

 He received a new plan from God and his life was never the same again.

The widow of Nain – Luke 7:11-17

 A widow was going to bury her only son – something no parent should ever have to do.

 To make matters worse, she had lost her husband and she was old (double whammy).

 There were many people (sympathizers) around her crying with her.

 Jesus saw her in that state and had compassion on her.

 The favor of God located this woman in her hopeless case.

 She had other plans – to bury her only son and wait for death to come for her as well.

But the favor of God came knocking; soon compassion followed and joy unspeakable was given birth to.

 This woman, similar to the others, received a new plan from God and her life never remained the same.

Implications/Lessons learned?

None of these three people asked God for what they received – it was completely unsolicited.

 One common thread in all these stories is that they were all favored by God.

 It is such an awesome thing to experience God’s favor.

 One day of God’s favor is better than a lifetime of labor.

 Pray for God’s favor – Psalm 5:12

An Open Door (Part 2)

Today is the appointed day to gather My people, for today is the day of salvation for the lost.

Watch, pray and work, for the day of preparation has ended and the day of labor has begun.

Seek not to receive praise from men, for it is short-lived and worthless, but rather let Me be your praise and heart’s desire, even as I have made you mine.

I come quickly to receive my Bride unto myself therefore, that which you do must be done quickly for the hour is far spent and yet my people are still not saved.

Hear my call to you to come up to the place in Me where my anointing flows that I may empower you for the work that must be done now, in this hour.

I have chosen to use women in this hour to do a mighty work for Me, but you must be unspotted from the world, anchored in my beloved Son, filled with My Spirit and moved upon with compassion and love for the lost and hurting, dispossessed, fatherless, widows, orphans and abused mass of people.

This is your time to rise up and come forth to proclaim and demonstrate My love and saving grace to those I have prepared to hear.

Do your part by renouncing the things of the world and establishing yourselves in My righteousness and holiness for the work ordained by Me for your hands to fulfill.

Put away all malice, anger and greed. Let the wicked deeds of this world have nothing to do with you.

Be Holy, even as I am Holy, that my power may flow through you unhindered to the pulling down of strongholds in the lives of My people.

 

 

 

An Open Door (Part 1)

I have called you forth to reach out to hurting, abused and neglected women who have moved my heart to compassion, as I’ve watched them reach out for love in all the wrong faces and all the wrong places, seeking to enter into a bond of love that does not exist outside of Me.

I want them to come in and be sheltered from the storm, to receive refreshment, to be loved and tenderly entreated that they may grow to trust My love for them.

I seek to envelope them with My presence and My love that they may walk upright before Me, living holy lives to My honor and glory sheltered from the onslaught of satanic activity seeking to destroy their very souls.

You have been ordained to walk holy before Me. I have set you apart to demonstrate My love to a hurting world. I desire to overflow in you that your lives may be used exclusively for My glory and honor.

I need women vessels who have denied themselves, counted the cost and have decided to follow Me with their whole heart.

This is not the time to seek great things for yourself, but a time to be broken and spilled out to a mass of unwanted, hurting and abused women.

I need commitment, dedication, honesty and sincerity to rise up within you that I may entrust my riches to you to distribute into the hands of those I have chosen to come in from the cold.

Life is too short to be spent in vanity, but must now be invested in the things of the Kingdom, for the Kingdom work is the most important work to be done in this hour.

Reach past your own desires and begin to desire my heart, that I may through you touch broken and shattered lives.

For I am prepared to send the harvest among you but you must be prepared to gather them in through love and compassionate hearts.

Hearken to My voice and hear what My Spirit is saying in this hour. Rise up from your complacency and your bed of ease and gather unto Me My chosen Bride, for inasmuch as your labor is not in vain when you labor faithfully for My cause.

I will cause you to triumph victoriously and your lives will reach new and higher dimensions in Me than you ever dreamed possible.
