RED ALERT: A VISION OF THE COMING STORM

“THE FORCE OF GOD’S POWER OVER THE EARTH”

By Mary Lindow – through the Holy Spirit

 

BEFORE WE BEGIN:

I’m going to kindly ask you to please be patient and take the time to listen to this as a crucial podcast, due to the important timing. I have recorded the entire vision as well as what the Lord has shown me as to what it all means in the audio form, but I will only be able to share with you in the text form here when I explained a little bit about what happened in this tremendous vision. It takes so much bandwidth to put the entire message into the text and it really is a very tedious and difficult process.

Please listen! The vision alone is in the notes below.

 

I am returning now with a podcast that I had promised to have follow the previous podcast where I talked about “A time of review, before the new”. This podcast is one that I have sat on for about a year, due to the fact of it being pretty intense for me receiving this from the Lord.

Trying to figure out how to put into words what you see in the spirit in a vision from the Lord, and understanding it and then, scripturally applying what you have seen and learned is daunting. For me it’s a very serious and holy thing, and I wanted to make sure that I really presented it at the time and in the way that the Lord would want me to.

We’re going to get started with that but before I do I want you to know that at the end of my podcast I will be sharing about two different conferences that the Lord has opened the door for me to go and minister at, so those of you who often if ask if I’m going to be in your area, those doors and opening up again since the WuhanCovid19 bio weapon attack on our world, so you can look that up at the end and also my website has all the information you would need about those conferences.

 

THIS VISION HAS A LITTLE BIT OF GROUNDWORK IN IT.

In my last podcast I shared about a vision or a word from the Lord that I had in 2016 called, “The Great Coming Whirlwind” and I also shared about what the Lord was wanting us to see and was adjusting what we needed to look at in our hearts, regarding where we are at right now in this time on the earth.

 

I BELIEVE THAT THIS VISION THAT I HAD FROM THE LORD IS SO “RIGHT NOW” IN THE TIMING, THE PRECISION TIMING OF THE LORD TO SHARE. I am almost shaking a little bit as I share it and I feel a little bit of trembling sharing it, because I know we are coming up to a climax of something in the earth, and God is not mocked, and he is not a fool, and God is not afraid, nor is he worried.

 

HE WILL NOT IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM, ALLOW WICKEDNESS TO RULE AND REIGN.

But in that process, God does a deep work within his own people, because if there’s wickedness in his own he must Judge fairly and rightly, and he’s so good to give us time to get repentance going, to be accountable, to get the help we need. When we don’t, he has to bring his pure and righteous hand of judgment, and he has to do “cleaning house” because, God does not tolerate darkness in his light.

 

I’M GOING TO BEGIN TO SHARE THE VISION WITH THE SCRIPTURE VERSE THAT STARTED WITH THIS VISION.

It’s the picture that you will see on the podcast graphic itself.

I’d like you to take a look at it and please, have mercy and grace over me, because trying to put a graphic together and combine it all with what I saw, and how I saw it, was a challenge. The scripture verse that started this vision was very intense and of course, when we don’t understand what the word is always saying sometimes we’re a little not sure what we do with this, so I did a lot of studying and praying and referencing, before I chose to really open myself up to recording this.

 

THAT SCRIPTURE VERSE IS NAHUM 1:3-4 

‘The Lord is slow to anger but great in power, the Lord will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet. He rebukes the sea and dries it up, and he makes all the rivers run dry.”

 

I WAS IN OUR LOWER LEVEL IN OUR BASEMENT AND I HAD BEEN WORSHIPING, JUST TALKING TO THE LORD, PRAYING ABOUT ALL THAT WAS GOING ON IN THE EARTH, and began to get up to walk towards the area to go up the stairway and all of a sudden I felt this presence of the Lord come on me, and I know when this happens, he’s getting ready to speak to me or show me something, or I’m being called into immediate intercession for something. 

 

I’VE JUST LEARNED TO STOP AND STAND THERE AND SAY, “LORD WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANT ME TO DO, TO KNOW?

I’M HERE, SPEAK TO ME.”

I was just absolutely feeling weak, just like I was going to faint. I was under such a strong drawing to his presence, and so I began to walk and went upstairs and went into my room, a guest room we have, but I use it as my reading and praying room, and sat down in the chair there.  About the time I sat down I was, (and I share this, it’s so uncomfortable to share when you have these experiences) because the world and often in charismatic environments, either they mock what happens to someone or unfortunately, in Spirit-filled charismatic environments, things get hyper sensationalized, to the point that someone’s having a vision every moment, every five minutes they’ve got a word from the Lord and they’re rushing to post it or print it (and that’s up to them), but we tend to get very critical and may be jaded that when something authentic really happens to someone we immediately put it through this filter of,  “I don’t know”,  and so I understand your possible hesitancy to say, “we’ll see”.

 

THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH TESTING A VISION OR WORD OF GOD, YOU ABSOLUTELY SHOULD, but what I’m saying to you is I come before you with this because the Lord has a warning and a promise in it, and I am compelled by him to share this as quickly and as succinctly as I can with you now, to the best of my ability, by the Spirit of God.

 

So, I was sitting in the chair and I am now suddenly standing out in a barren area, up on a slight hill, and I was looking out over the land in front of me, and in the back distance I can see some slight hills so I kind of recognize the horizon, maybe some foothills in Colorado, and there was a sun trying to somewhat set in the background, like it was at the low level before sunset in Autumn in Colorado. It kind of just rests there in a yellow type of reddish tint.

I was standing there looking at all of this, my physical body was standing looking and yet I was above it in the spirit, watching this take place and the Holy Spirit was with me, instructing me about what I was to be observing.

 

NEXT TO ME WAS JESUS;  HE WAS STANDING THERE BY MY SIDE.

Now before I step forward I want you to know that I had no idea why in this vision Jesus was the way he was, until after I’d had the vision because a week later we had been helping care for a little foster baby girl, and a brand new baby grandson. Our youngest son had gotten food poisoning, so we went down to help care for these children. The little girl tended to be very ill because she needed medical care and was forever getting respiratory infections.  So, we were cleaning and doing everything parents do to help and assist, and of course, holding the new grand baby!

 

I WAS IN THERE WITH CLOROX, GETTING “EVERYTHING” WITH CLOROX and my face was probably down in germs, so what we did not know at the time, is that my son probably had a second round of Covid, and was reacting to it, it was a different strain, but the little girl had RSV, so both my husband and I came home, and shortly within 48 hours began with symptoms of massive RSV also the “big gun” Covid strain that everybody got, and in that process it was weeks of fighting to get well. Colorado forbade any kind of ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. Of course we’d been taking all the vitamin protocols and so on, but we were able through missionaries, to get ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, but we did not know we had what we had until it got so bad. 

 

WE KNEW WE WERE PRETTY MUCH ON OUR OWN WITH THE LORD, and we didn’t want anybody coming to take care of us, because we didn’t want to infect them.

 

I WAS LYING ON THE BED AND, JESUS WAS STANDING BY THE BED. I WAS AT A POINT WHERE I KNEW I HAD ONLY A FEW SHALLOW BREATHS LEFT, THAT THIS WAS IT!

I was walking in the “valley” of the shadow of death, and I have learned since then, that there is death and there’s “the valley of the shadow of death” where you were in the shadow of it, that it’s right next to you, but there’s a shadow of death over you, and it says that, “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you are with me”, and sure enough, during that time when I had the last two shallow breaths that I thought that I was going to take, my words to Jesus were, “if I die and I don’t wake up, I have to sleep now, then I’m with you.” I was travailing and crying for a good 48 hours because I was sad. Then the other part of me said, “Lord, if I wake up and I’m still here then use me to the fullest all that you can until it IS my time!”

 

I WAS EXPECTING BELLS AND WHISTLES AND ANGELS,

AND YOU KNOW! THE SMELL OF FRANKINCENSE AND SINGING BIRDS, AND THE GLORY OF GOD TO COME AND RAISE ME UP OFF THE BED!  

I REALLY DID EXPECT IT!

  

BUT WHAT HAPPENED INSTEAD was that there was a steady “non-emotional”, INTENSE PRESENCE that stood by my side, and the voice spoke “I AM”, and it was with authority! 

 

IT WASN’T MESSING WITH ME AND ANYTHING EMOTIONAL. It was a fact that whatever he was in that moment, sustained me.  I could see in the spirit a sash across him and I could see him holding my hand.  I was breathing so shallowly and I said, “I’m sorry Jesus, I have to go to sleep. Whatever happens, I trust you.”

And I did! 

 

WHEN I WOKE UP I WAS TOTALLY AWARE AND AWAKE AND KNEW THAT I HAD LIVED, (it was many hours later) and I immediately heard the Holy Spirit say, “Start the Ivermectin!” 

From that point on I won’t go any further, because that’s when the healing process began, but I wanted to tell you about Jesus standing by my side looking at me intently, holding my hand in the spirit. There was not any kind of crying and he wasn’t showing sadness or compassion or emotion. He WAS the sovereign presence holding me together.

 

 

 NOW WE GO BACK TO THE VISION.

I am standing there, Jesus is with me I’m looking out over land, and the land was so parched! The ground was curling up and looked dry like rectangle sizes, you could just probably pull a piece up like a slab of cardboard that has sat out in the sun, and was curled up around the corners. The entire landmass in front of me was covered in this parched, dry desert, and I was looking at it saying, “it’s so dry! There’s just nothing of moisture here!”

 

I was asking Jesus, “What am I looking at, what am I seeing?” Jesus was just looking at me saying, “You’re learning, I want you to observe, you’re to learn to take this in.”  I kept looking and seeing this, as I was looking out further on the horizon. This was to the left of me Jesus was standing to the right of me.

 

I looked up past the shoulder of Jesus and in the distance to the right or him, I saw a swirling, boiling looking red cloud, and it was the color of terra-cotta, like garden pots that we used to put plants in, that earthy clay soil color. I’m watching this dust cloud boil and boil and grow larger and larger, and I’m getting a little concerned because it’s a pretty high in the sky, but it’s coming our direction, it’s kind of at a vanishing point angle. Here it comes, and it’s starting to make a noise, it’s swishing and beginning to drop the dust down on the ground and blow across this dry parched area as it began to come my direction. I was concerned and Jesus took me by the hand. It was again, “I AM here no matter what happens, no matter what comes, I AM!” 

 

Then I suddenly begin to see that the cloud is being pushed by something! Something is driving this cloud forward and it was a sleek dynamic train. I tried to make it look right in my art piece that I created for it, it’s not quite right, it was more sleek and dynamic, but it was the best I could come up with.

 

This train had these massive wheels that were turning, and you could hear the power, the dynamic power, the clicking, nothing was missing, not one cylinder was off, it was churning and churning and chuffing and chuffing. Nothing was going to stop the destination of this train.  It was driving a storm forward pushing the storm.

 

The sound became so loud and powerful that you tremble at the strength and the might, and the power of the force of this train! As it was moving up above us, the dirt of this cloud of dust was sifting down over Jesus and me. It was such a fine, silty reddish soil. I could see it gathering in the beard of Jesus, then his hair and in the vision I had much longer hair, it was falling down into my hair and on our arms when I was holding his hand. I could see it gathering on the sleeve of my arm and on his sleeve. Jesus kept looking at me, and as long as I kept referencing back to him as the storm was dumping this mass amount of whatever it was, the substance that was being driven by this force, driven out - driven over, as long as I looked at him, I had a non-emotional response, but a steady understanding that knew I was being held by a power greater than anything that could ever come against me.

 

This went on and on. The dust was so clogged and cloudy that I could just see the silhouette of Jesus, but I had his hand and we held our hands and stood there as this loud, powerful, dynamic train began to just roar over the top of us. Then I heard a voice shout out over the sound of all this and it was firm!  “It’s DUNAMIS! Dunamis! The Dunamis Power!”

 

I STOOD THERE JUST SAYING, “DUNAMIS, I KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS IN THE GREEK, IT MEANS DYNAMITE, DYNAMO, (saying this to myself in the spirit).”  I’m standing here in this vision trying to remember the power of that word as the train was passing and that word was written on the train, as I watched it finally pass by and begin to go further up in the sky and then pass by us.

 

SUDDENLY IT GOT QUIETER, AND IT WAS AN EARTH SHAKING VIBRATING STORM THAT WAS DRIVEN BY THIS FORCEFUL DUNAMIS POWER OF GOD.  Again, the Holy Spirit and I were standing up at the back watching this, watching Jesus and me at the same time, and the Holy Spirit was saying to me,  “watch, learn, observe.”

 

ONCE AGAIN JESUS TURNED HIS HEAD AND LOOKED OUT OVER THE VALLEY AND INDICATED TO ME, “I WANT YOU TO LOOK OUT HERE”.

AS I LOOKED, THE DUST HAD BEGUN TO SETTLE AND I COULD IDENTIFY THAT WE HAVEN’T BEEN MOVED,

Nothing was different, I’m in the same place, except the Horizon in the background looks the same, the sun is the exact same place it was, just about ready set, sitting in the same position in the sky, but the land that has been parched and curled up and dry, every single crevice or crevasse, every single surface was covered in this thick layer of this red dust. It had completely transformed into a different look, and different land.

 

AT THAT POINT I WAS JUST IN AWE AND I DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT ALL MEANT AND THEN...

...WHAM!

I AM BACK OUT OF THE VISION AND SITTING IN MY CHAIR, gasping at what have I just had happen to me, and of course I started crying!

I WAS ASKING GOD TO SHOW ME “Father! Father! Jesus! Holy Spirit! What have you just shown me? What are you saying?”

 

Then I heard the Spirit of the Lord say, “These are things to come.

Learn about them, prepare, and I’ll tell you when to share.”

measuring_our_hearts84i3h.jpg

By Mary Lindow 

I am by far not an expert on the subject of plumblines and righteousness, so take what I say in the light of one who at time gropes like a child in the dark, ever reaching for the hand of the ONE to lead me into a safe place filled with His Hope, His Mercy, His Light and Life.

 
WE LIVE IN A CORRUPT WORLD and therefore, have the “effects and affects” of that corruption ever influencing, ever tainting and ever wooing the flesh. 

Plumbline: a tool that consists of a small, heavy object attached to a string or rope and that is used especially to see if something (such as a wall) is perfectly vertical or in alignment)  

A plumbline is a simple but accurate tool used for determining whether or not something is perfectly vertical or upright. The Lord also used, and uses, a "plumbline," His Word, to determine how upright His people truly are in His sight.

How upright they think they are, or how upright they proclaim themselves to be, means nothing to God.

 "Behold, I WILL set a plumbline in the midst of My people". 

-Amos 7:7 

 

A PLUMBLINE SET OUT BY THE HAND OF GOD IS ONE THAT WE CAN ANCHOR OUR HEARTS TO.

It will always, always, ALWAYS, direct us to the truth in a matter; even if it requires pain, loss, persecution and perhaps death in areas we feel we may well have rights to. 

It will also be a shield, a balm, a comfort and a teacher to those who will yield to the directive positioning of the Master. 

“I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plumbline.” -Isaiah 28:17 

 

LIFE – DISTRESS - AND PERSECUTION 

I have found that in my life, distress and persecution do not feel like God’s care being poured out on me. My heart is not immediately drawn to thanksgiving and gratefulness for the faithfulness of God on display as I cling to the battered pieces that look like potential “rafts” of hope, only to find out that many of them have gaping holes or slow leaks in them. 

Rather, it feels like yet another hurt is being permanently woven into my tattered and war-torn soul. It seems as if another mound of questions are piling up and just waiting for an answer and a true solid REAL anchor of hope. 

 

I CAN REALLY CONNECT TO THE WRITER OF PSALM 42 

He said “Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me?” It’s at those very times that the words of the Savior are so important. When we are down and in turmoil. 

But, how do we connect the dots between what we know is true about God’s faithfulness and what our hearts feel? When flipped and flung around by the waves, weary from crying and when no answer seems at hand, what is the answer? 

When my circumstances show many foes and tyrants rising up against me and my heart is prone to wander and fear, what hope is there of peace? 

When my feelings start controlling my thoughts, how can I rest in God’s promises? 

 

AT THIS POINT… I HEAR THE “GASPS” … 

…And perhaps shocked comments of a few who are amazed that someone who appears to walk so fervently and intimately with the Lord would have such difficulties! 

Well! Guess what?

I do struggle, I do hurt, and yes I do doubt when I have been side swiped or “rammed” by skilled cons and those who, although may have the appearance of godliness and offered friendship or fellowship, end up having private and evil agendas behind their well placed and planned schemes.

And boy oh boy! Those skilled players know the wicked art of wounding the heart and causing people to reel in pain! 

 

BUT, THERE IS ONE WHO FULLY SEES IT ALL 

The main skill in the issue of dealing with life as a spiritual person, is to know how to handle yourself when things not only crush and grind your heart, but what to do with the anguish and toll of their aftermath. 

We have to get ourselves into a place where we hear clearly again. 

We need have to address ourselves, preach to ourselves, and ask questions about ourselves. 

We must say to our soul: "Why are you cast down –Why are you so anxious and lacking in peace?" 

We must urge ourselves, and say ‘Hope in God’–instead of remaining in this paralyzed, aching state!” 

 

AND THEN WE MUST TAKE IT A STEP FURTHER

We must go on to remind ourselves just “Who “God is, and what God is and what God has done, and what God has promised that he Himself said that He would do. 

Having done that we can stand up and sing out strongly, defying the torment of the soul, and resist other people’s wicked tongues and arrogance, and refuse to go along with the devil and the whole world, and say: ‘Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.” 

The hope and promise of the fairness of God’s justice when dealing with the hurtful things and presumptions of others gives me the confidence to know that God will never turn away from me in my need. No matter how they seem to prosper in the short term, wicked men and women will ultimately pay for their sins, in this life or the next. Jesus died to meet my greatest hardships and sorrows for me, and I need to preach this to myself every day.

His power is greater than my weariness and suffering. 

The comforting and instruction that comes from simply running to feed upon His word instead of the toxic poison of the replaying of trauma reminds me that what Jesus has done is strong enough for my soul to rejoice in and to be set into a place where it can rest and regroup, gaining a healthy perspective about what to give out to others and what is simply…

…. To be enjoyed by the Lord Himself. 

 

THE NATURAL IMPULSES OF MANKIND ARE SINFUL AND DECEITFUL! 

Human willpower alone will never be able to change this. 

We need God's help to truly change our hearts. 

 

REMEMBER. You cannot change the heart of anyone else either. 

If you try to, you will feel the bite of stinging venom or be laughed out of a room. Only the power of the conviction of the Holy Spirit can permeate and get around the jam-packed hardhearted egos of the self sufficient and bitter. 

Jeremiah 17:9 says that the human heart is deceitful in all things and is even beyond cure!

We must be cautious and wise in reproving and warning such types of people about their bad behaviors and wicked actions where there seems to be no appearance or hope of change and where there is danger of experiencing great and heart wrecking retaliation and slander. 

These types trample the warnings and urging for repentance and humbling of the heart under their feet, and turn again and slash at you, despising the warnings that are “tearfully and fearfully” given, and often hurt the persons who give them, either by words or deeds. 

 

"Don't waste what is holy on people who are unholy. 

Don't throw your pearls to pigs! 

They will trample the pearls, 

then turn and attack you.” 

-Matthew 7:6 

 

"GIVE ME THE FACTS MA’AM JUST THE FACTS” 

I remember that phrase from a TV show called “Dragnet”. The detective would not allow the details of the case to be skewed by any assumptions or pontificating from those he interviewed. He stoically and firmly demanded only the facts. 

And so, here are the “facts” about the heart of a good man or woman.

1.) The good man or woman: Brings good things out of the good stored up in his/her heart. And the facts about an evil man or woman. 

2.) The evil man/woman brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his/her heart. For out of the overflow of his or her heart his or her mouth speaks. Luke 6:45 

 

THE FRAILTY, BRIEFNESS, AND INSECURITY OF LIFE 

The frailty, briefness, and insecurity of life should hold down the vanity and presumptuous confidence of all of our projects and boasting about future greatness and bragging rights! We are always to depend on the will and leading of God. 

 

OUR TIMES ARE NOT IN OUR OWN HANDS, BUT ARE INSTEAD IN THE TIMING OF GOD. Our heads may be filled with cares and plans for ourselves, or our families, or our friends; but Divine intervention often throws our plans into bewilderment. All we have in mind, and all we do, should be with a humble and deep dependence on God.

It is foolish, and it is hurtful, to boast of trendy “latest happening” things and prospective projects, and it will bring great disappointment and will prove destructive to relationships and meaningful help to others in the end. 

 

“For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.” 

-1 John 2:16

 

LISTEN KINDLY - BEFORE SPEAKING YOUR THOUGHTS 

People don't need a lecture on the meaning of suffering or to have a barrage of scriptures “machine-gunned” at them as a reprimand for sharing their moment of grief or struggle! (Especially when their hearts are breaking, weary of the battle and if they are fatigued.)

Job could have done without some of the self-righteous answers that came from his “well-meaning” friends. All of the answers could have even been true, but Job didn't need to hear any of them. 

He needed their love, not their value judgments. 

In fact, it appears as if God judged THEM for trying to offer simple solutions to things that were beyond their comprehension. They had never walked in the loss he was in anguish over. 

 

WHEN WE SUFFER UNJUSTLY WE HAVE A MAJOR CHOICE TO MAKE

How will we respond? We can feel sorry for ourselves (and understandably so, for a while), become bitter and cynical, get drawn into a war of words, or even become mixed up in a major conflict.

On the other hand, we can take our suffering to the cross and allow our pain to draw us into a deeper place of understanding of what Jesus went though in his sufferings. This does not remove the pain, but does help us to know what to do with our hurt. 

 

This is the 'fellowship of his sufferings' (Philippians 3:10), one of the gateways to closeness with God and the release of his power in our lives. The weight of heartbreak shared with a loving friend cuts it in half. When the burden is shared with many friends, we can cope with almost anything.

We never feel more revitalized than when a friend loves us enough to walk with us in our pain. Not lecture us. 

 

The apostle Paul wrote these words to the church in Corinth: 

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God". -1 Corinthians 1.3-4 

 

SOMETIMES GOD GETS INVOLVED WITH DIRECT MIRACLES, Giving supernatural strength to those in need. But for the most part, he depends on us, his people, to do his work in the world. We love each other, work for healing, and suffer with those who suffer. 

The next time you see a friend who is suffering, Jesus may just invite you to be the warm embrace! We comfort each other with the comfort we have received in Christ. And when we do, we become the Body of Christ and he receives the glory! 

 

THE BIBLE IS CLEAR! 

We are to bear one another's burdens. 

We are to comfort others as Christ has given comfort to us. 

Your hard time becomes my hard time. 

We join hands in the journey. 

When you succeed, I succeed. 

When you suffer, I suffer. But we do it together. We share it together. 

And we do it, not so much in our wisdom or our words, but in our availability, our understanding, and through our presence. 

 

THAT'S WHAT FELLOWSHIP IS ALL ABOUT! 

But not “bland” fellowship.

It is CHRISTIAN fellowship. It is the business of burden bearing.

Authentic CHRISTIAN fellowship says that when you need me . . . I'll be there.

Support in suffering is at the core of what it means to share life together in Christ. The word for "comfort” is the same root word as the name Jesus used to describe one of the functions of the Holy Spirit in our lives (Paraclete). “I will be a comforter, one who comes alongside to give help.” And so as God comes alongside you, now you are able to come alongside another. As the Comforter is at work within you, so you also can be of comfort to those around you. 

 

WE ARE CALLED TO BEAR ONE ANOTHER'S BURDENS. 

To mourn with those who mourn.

To be a follower of Jesus means to come alongside people who are hurting and find ways to help them walk even through the valley of the shadow of death. We are called to do this, as the word of God and care of God is shared with the intention of stirring, plowing up hardened hearts, creating a place for repentance and challenging saints to hope again, I know and believe that as we learn again as believers, to care, to truly listen and to hope fully again, that the sweet and heavy weight of HIS Glory will be made known and will manifest in unfettered and uncontrolled waves of worship and spontaneous adoration of the King of Heaven. 

HE REALLY DOES KNOW WHAT HE WANTS

Let's focus on bowing low and seeking His heart and plans in what matters to Him.

Indeed, HE is the Plumbline. 

 

Prayer 

God, I ask in Jesus' name, that you comfort, strengthen and encourage all who are hurting deeply right now and are going through so much pain and heartache. 

Don't allow them to give up in the heat of the battle. 

Let them feel your arms wrapping around them and your love overflowing and filling them up. Lord, I will pray often and I know that you will hear my voice, even when I speak to You in my silent thoughts. 

To You, I am crying out and my prayers are now before You. 

Father, I give to You my problems, I do not want them. 

Father, please restore them to You. I know that you have compassion for your children. Father, show them your ways and teach them your paths. Lead them in your truth and teach them you are the God of our salvation and on you we will wait. 

Protect them from the evils of this life and guide them through all of their days. Father, thank You for hearing my prayer Father and for considering and for having compassion on all who hear and read these words, and all who hurt, in this troubled world we live in. 

Keep them in the center of Your love. 

In Jesus’ Name

~ Amen

How_Much_Light784po.jpg

By Mary Lindow

THE WORDS “HELP ME!” ARE THE DEEPEST CRY OF EVERY HUMAN HEART. It perfectly describes the anguish of the soul, that agony in need to hear God lovingly respond with redemptive help.

He answers as the very person and the very place of help through His son Jesus Christ, providing help for the helpless, a Father to the fatherless, and Hope for the hopeless.

One of the most amazing things about of God and so very precious to the humble needs of we humans is that he is actually the very BEING, the very exact place, where we find help.

Nothing and no one else is so truly and so really, THE place and person from who help comes like he is.

Our need for help is more accurately termed “rescue” when it’s expressed in the fullest sense, and only Jesus himself can provide it!

He rescues us from our daily “sneaky and self gratifying” sins and he rescues us from our falling and our faults, and he rescues us from our helplessness and hopelessness!

 

JESUS ALONE IS THE PLACE OF RESCUE.

He is the ultimate single person of help and we can find no one else to fill that break in the bridge of life! There is no one else, and when we come to this place we realize we need no other fixer!

Now, this doesn’t mean that we don’t need one another as brothers and sisters in Christ and as friends. But unless those brothers and sisters and friends are walking in the light and brokenness of the Lord, they really aren’t much help anyway.

 

SOME PEOPLE RESIST AND PROLONG THE INEVITABLE, and will resist you when you are going through times of struggle and difficulty. There is a certain “ugly distain” in an individual who does not want to admit that they are infallible.

These individuals still feel that they can control the environment around them through their education, their income, and their attitude.

 

OFTEN, THESE KINDS OF INDIVIDUALS CAN CREATE PAINFUL DARKNESS in the lives of others, because instead of extending mercy and compassion, they have a lot of advice that comes out of simple textbook reading, rather than out of any real experience in dealing with their own darkness and personal places of being stuck in dysfunction.

 

SAD AS IT MAY SEEM, MANY PEOPLE APPLAUD THEIR OWN DYSFUNCTIONS, claiming that they are actually “just fine”, and they will pretty much verbally “whack anyone else in the head” that dares to challenge them!

 

THESE ARE THE FRIENDS THAT JOB HAD, AND THESE ARE NOT REAL FRIENDS. They will never understand the life of the disciple of dear Jesus, being refined in the fire, in order to come out of that fire more radiant, and expressing the hope and light of Christ without a lot of pompous preaching or fanfare.

 

The way to the fulfillment of all of life‘s highest peaks and deepest longings is in knowing the depths of the love of the Rescuer,

Lord Jesus Christ himself.

It’s not a quick process by the way!

 

 

HOW MUCH LIGHT DOES A PERSON NEED WHEN PRESSED UNDER by evil pressures, nightmarish reoccurring losses and disjointed, painful relationships? 

Only a very tiny pinhole of light, if it is the Light that comes from God.

 

ONE PINHOLE OF GODLY LIGHT

IS STRONGER THAN A UNIVERSE OF DARKNESS. 

 

It is enough for a surrendered and determined believer to cling to and depend on when all else has failed.

 

Psalm 89:15 says,

“Blessed are those who have learned to give praise and honor to you,

Who walk in the light of your presence, O LORD.”

 

When we focus upon the Light of God's enduring and endearing Presence, all darkness will eventually be swallowed up into the Light of His Fountain of light. His Light is victorious over the darkness. ALL OF IT.

 

Psalm 36:9 says,

“For with you is the fountain of life; In your light we see light.”

 

WE ALONE CANNOT BATTLE THE DARKNESS.

Our strength is not enough.

Accept that and know that God’s light comes to dispel darkness.

His strength and Righteous arm smashes dark deeds, enemies, and deceivers and He will bring out into the light the things men think that they have hidden or have justified away.

 

Psalm 90:8 says,

You spread out our sins before you—our secret sins—and see them all.

 

WHAT IS HAPPENING WHEN YOU FEEL BLIND AND LOST IN A DARKENED SEASON? Just as a caterpillar in a cocoon must experience a time of confinement and seeming darkness, there comes a time when it is lead out of darkness into light to stretch its newly found wings of liberty and gracefulness to soar and express Resurrection power, to those who gaze upon its beauty.

Few will fully understand the pain of this difficult process, unless they too pass through it.

 

Isaiah 42:16 says,

Along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; 

I will turn the darkness into light before them

And make the rough places smooth.

These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.

 

 

SO! WHO ARE THE GENUINE WORKERS OF GOOD AND HONEST DEEDS?

Now, there are those who do acts of benevolence and kindness whose aim is to only gain personal gratification and a sense of power when they “stoop to help others” in times of distress and sorrow.  

Often times, folks with this fleshly and condescending behavior, (although claiming to have some spiritual godliness) will test those whom they share with. This can be either in monetary gifts, acts of service, spiritual gifts, or in counsel.

 

In basic terms, it’s set up.

You better perform up to the standard they expect!

Because it’s their reputation on the line if you fail!

(Imagine if Jesus held us all accountable to the acts of His goodness towards us!)

This is NOT a Worker of A Righteous or Good and Honest deed.

This is a form of selfish ambition, entrapment and control.

 

A RIGHTEOUS DEED OR ACT OF GOODNESS IS DONE WITH THE

INTENT OF IMITATING THE NATURE OF GOD’S MERCY AND KINDESS.

It does not expect performance or groveling in return.

It never holds others over the fire with a critical eye, expecting perfection.

 

Often we have failed and disrespected His grace.

Yet He continues in love, and Redemptive acts towards us.

Because He has, no insecurities whatsoever.

 

TO BE RIGHTEOUS OR “DOING WHAT IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF GOD” MEANS TO BE:

VIRTUOUS  - MORAL - GOOD  - JUSTICE LOVING

HONORABLE  - HONEST - RESPECTABLE - DECENT

 

I HAVE PERSONALLY EXPERIENCED IN THE PAST AND EVEN AS RECENTLY AS THE PAST FEW WEEKS, OVERWHELMING ACTS OF KINDNESS AND PATIENCE FROM THOSE WHOM I KNOW, GOD MUST CALL HIS WORKERS OF HONORABLE AND KIND DEEDS.

 

THE COMMON THREAD I SEE AMONG ALL OF THESE BELOVED GIVERS OF GRACE and care is that they have all experienced a time of great loss, depravation, near death, or sorrow.

 A Ray of Hope.

A beam of light that draws you out of the darkness that attempts to tow you under in despair or fear.

 

I JUST LOST ONE OF MY SEVEN BROTHERS.

Sudden liver failure and organ failure. He was 63.

He was brilliant, funny and kind.

 

I LOST ANOTHER FRIEND A WEEK LATER. 

One moment a successful surgery, moments later a clot was formed and a stroke took place.

Gone in a moment. She was 62.

A giver, an artist and lover of God.

 

I HAD A VERY DEAR FAMILY MEMBER THAT I LOVE, TURN ON ME SUDDENLY and share privileged information with others who are not considered safe or wise people.

Trust was shattered!

 

ALL THREE OF THESE EVENTS WERE AND ARE PAINFUL!

All three events were and are out of my ability to control!

And friends, grief and loss and betrayal are very, very real, and they are very painful events in our lives.

 

YET, GOD SEND US OTHERS INTO OUR SPIRAL OF PAIN AND LOSS, who "get it", because not only have they been through similar events, they learned that hard won growth can come out of pain and loss, or, you can choose to grow isolated, insulated, and bitter.

 

Jeremiah 9:24 says,

But let him who boasts- boast about this: 

That he understands and knows Me,

That I am the LORD, who exercises kindness,

justice and righteousness on earth,

for in these I delight," declares the LORD.

 

WHEN TORMENT AND LYING SPIRITS DECEIVE OTHERS  and they foolishly accuse you; know that there are others whom God will place in your life that will bring sober and Godly counsel, as well as loving kindness and help.

 

Proverbs 27:9 says,

Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one's friend, springs from his earnest counsel.

 

DO NOT STOP IN YOUR KINDNESS AND IN YOUR CARE FOR OTHERS!

The testing in this hour of the hearts of men and women will only grow more intense as the Lord examines the intentions of the hearts of those who call Him Lord.

 

The hoarding of comfort and help can’t ever be allowed  

in the life of a follower of Jesus.

 

Your comfort, is not number one!

 

SOMETIMES, WE PUT ASIDE OUR OWN NEEDS AND COMFORTS AND SECURITY, AND FORGE THROUGH THE DARKNESS TO BRING HOPE AND RELIEF TO THOSE BEING BATTERED BY A RELENTLESS STORM!

We speak peace to them IN the storm.

Jesus did it! So He gives us the courage and strength to do the same!

 

IF YOU HAVE PERSONALLY CAUSED TRAGEDY, DESTRUCTION OR SHAME to fall upon any of your Family in Christ, and have yet to openly apologize and make the situation you were a part of “right”, know that the risk of a deep darkness of the soul is reserved for those who choose to walk in self-deception and who cloak their denial in passivity.

 

QUICKLY WHILE YOU STILL HAVE TIME, HUMBLE YOURSELF in the sight and the light of the Lord and HE will lift you out of your darkness.

Be humble enough to apologize specifically, for the harm you have done to someone.

Own it, apologize, and ask for their forgiveness.

 

Then, Light will come again into your soul, and so will a flooding peace that cleanses you from shame and the claw of bitterness that demons use to torment and immobilize you with.

 

Philippians 2:3 says,

Don’t be selfish; don’t live to make a good impression on others.

Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourself.

 

DEAR BELIEVER!

THERE IS THE OPEN OFFER OF AN ABUNDANCE OF JOY FOR

WORKERS OF RIGHTEOUS AND HUMBLE, HONORABLE DEEDS!

 

Psalm 45:7 says,

You love righteousness and hate wickedness;

therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions

by anointing you with the oil of joy.

 

Psalm 33:1 says,

Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous

it is fitting for the upright to praise him.

 

NOW, I’M GOING TO SHARE A PROPHETIC WORD FROM THE LORD THAT DOES ADDRESS SOME OF THIS AND IT’S IN AN ACTIVE AND VOCAL WAY THAT THE LORD WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK TO US, TO PUT A TYPE OF SEAL ON THIS MESSAGE.

 

“HOLD ON! HOLD FAST! REACH OUT!”

 - A PROPHETIC WORD -

 

"I the Redeemer of those who cry out to Me day and night, compel you to hold on to My hand of Faithfulness and Light.

Keep your eyes on the light I provide for you in the darkness. 

Hold fast to it and I will stir the hearts of the Righteous and faithful in me, to reach out a hand of compassion and they will obey Me with acts of blessing, restoration, and supply.

They will do this willingly, for they have tasted of sorrow and know the secret of My abundant Joy!

They have gone out weeping themselves, sowing seeds when they didn’t understand, all now growing up in compassion, only to produce a harvest, abundant in Joy.

Psalm 126:6 says,

Those who weep as they walk and plant with sighs

Will return singing with joy, when they bring home the harvest.

 

I the Lord have tasted sorrow, loss, torment, and death.

Yet in one Redemptive act, mankind was brought the opportunity for the fullness of Joy and the open door from darkness into light, when they too, choose to call upon My salvation, cleansing, and light.

Quickly. Cleanse your hearts of any act of unkindness, false humility, and the use of a heavy hand over your brothers or sisters, or your children.

The pinhole of light...

...My Light, Is drawing you into a New Day.

 

For Even in darkness light dawns for the upright,

for the gracious and compassionate

and for those in right standing with God.

Psalm 112:4

 

 

Dear Believer! I encourage you to chew on this message.

Let us all bow before the Lord. Get low and sit at the feet of Jesus.

Ask Him to wash you clean of fear and weariness and feeling displaced.

 

This is a different type of warfare that we are experiencing right now!

It’s not one that a lot of us have experienced on this level of pressure.

Ask the Lord to show you that single pinhole of light.

From that light, God shows us He is there with us.

 

Be strong in the Lord

And in the POWER of His Might.

Heaven_on_Earth6y5cx.jpg

By Mary Lindow

Last year on December 21st 2020 (which was the 1st Day of Winter) Steve and I drove to pick up salads for our dinner. It had been a challenging month having just had his Mother pass into heaven while in WuhanCovid-19 lockdowns in a nursing facility. 

 

To be honest, we were a little weary and tender in heart, and still had preparations to do for our Family Christmas Day dinner and celebration with our Son Joel and his wife Angela and our 4 Grandchildren. Our youngest son Tim and his wife Liz were in Texas with her family. This had also been during the most severe time of lockdowns and restrictions in our State.

Everything felt hard, and dark, and mean.

 

As we were driving away after picking up salads,

my sister texted and asked if we were going to look for

the  “Christmas Star”,

Or, the two planet convergence taking place that evening at dusk. I had wanted to see this and had forgotten! So we aimed the car West and watched the sky!

 

We live at an altitude of 5290 feet above sea level and have a glorious view of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. At this specific time of year the sun sits at a very low angle in the western sky and when it dips behind the mountains, there is an almost greenish-aqua reflective light, and at 5:15 MDST we saw the "Christmas Star" or two planets very closely spaced together (to human eyes) start to take shape in the Western sky.

 

We quickly drove to a favorite hilltop location, not too far from our home where we often go to walk and enjoy a complete 360-degree view of our surrounding area and state. We thought that at night and away from city lights we’d have a great place to see this phenomenon and view it away from too many people. This event marked the first time since 1623 that the two planets Saturn and Jupiter have passed this close to one another and also marked the nearly 800 years since the planets aligned at night. As a result, some have referred to the planetary alignment as forming a "Christmas star," in reference to the Star of Bethlehem, since the event falls only a few days before Christmas.

 

As we drove in thinking we’d take the dirt road up to the hill where there was a parking area, all around us there were HUNDREDS of people parked on the dirt driveway up the hill and on the side streets of the neighborhood surrounding it!

 

HUNDREDS of people were standing on the hill, looking Westward and upward, looking for the "Christmas Star".

The most unusual thing was taking place though.

There was a hushed "awe" in this big crowd.

 

People were either talking low or they were whispering, as if this was a sacred moment not to be disrespected by loud noises. No one was talking on his or her cell phones! WOW!

 

You could feel the questions and the cries and thoughts of those standing there watching and looking up into the sky.  You could sense the desperation of many wanting to know what to do in such and strange and dark time on planet earth and wondering why this event was taking place at this time!

 

We drove around the entirety of the hill's lower neighborhood road,

looking in amazement at all of the people, and a sudden wave

of what I would call "travail" moved me to tears and prayer.

 

Steve and I began to cry out the Father to touch the souls of those looking up into the sky, knowing that all of them are fully aware of the troubled days that they were living in. We prayed that they would risk and speak from their weary hearts to the God who hung those radiant planets that were glowing in the sky, just for them, just at this very moment in time.

 

God SO Loves the World!

He sent his Son...

…So the world might know His full expression of deep commitment to the people He created with the tips of His fingers and the breath of His being.

 

We saw more than just the "Star" that night!  We saw people, engaging in wonder!

 

Of course we know it wasn’t "THE" Christmas Star shining so very brightly in the sky, on the longest and darkest day/night of the year! (The Winter Solstice), but doesn't the Lord create things that would show signs and wonders in the heavenlies?

 

WHY DID GOD ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN THAT NIGHT,

DURING THE CUSTOMARY SEASON ON EARTH WHERE PEOPLE CELEBRATE

THE BIRTH OF CHRIST, WHEN THE EARTH WAS IN SUCH TURMOIL?

(And still is!)

 

Because He knows that if He can use something to draw people to himself,

He will do it! 

 

Psalm 57:10-11 says,

“Your love is so extravagant it reaches to the heavens;
your faithfulness so astonishing it stretches to the sky!

Lord God, be exalted as you soar throughout the heavens.
May your shining glory be shown in the skies!
Let it be seen high above all the earth!”

 

Of course it’s was not the actual date of the birth of Jesus Christ in December,

nor was this the actual star that was seen by the shepherds and Wise men.

But God knows mankind knows the stories and that there was a Star to guide them, so, He wastes nothing in order to draw all men to himself.

 "This is what I will do in the last days— I will pour out  MY Spirit on everybody

and cause your sons and daughters to prophesy, and your young men will see visions

and your old men will experience dreams from God. 

The Holy Spirit will come upon all my servants,

men and women alike, and they will prophesy

I will reveal startling signs and wonders in the sky above,

and mighty miracles on the earth below.  - Acts 2:17 -19

 

These planets would be closest to each other in the sky on Dec. 21, appearing only a tenth of a degree apart but they would remain in close alignment for a few days and would be easily visible to the naked eye when looking toward the slight southwest west just after sunset on first day of winter in the Northern Hemisphere.

 

NOW! THIS IS THE PART WHERE THE KINDNESS

AND SUPERNATURAL TOUCH OF GOD,

TOOK PLACE FOR STEVE AND I!

 

We had had a very intense and sad family upset with some stressed out relatives the night before and had done a bit of damage control and counseling of everyone, but our hearts were hurting over words that had been spoken and the pain that they had caused for many. (Holidays can often bring out the dysfunctions and anger in some people who tend to not address personal issues.) We gently but firmly coached a few involved to see things more accurately and to go and correct there bad choice of words and apologize. They did, but the upset left everyone feeling grieved and raw.

 

On Christmas Eve we like to take a tray of home baked treats to a few of our neighbors and wish them a Joyful Christmas. I had asked Steve to run a final tray across the street to some neighbors who hadn’t been home earlier.  As I was standing at the kitchen sink rinsing out a bowl that had held cookie dough, I was talking to the Lord and sharing my heart and sadness with Him about missing my precious Mother in Law, the strangeness of the dark world of a bio-terror weapon that was causing such fear and sickness, and the grief I felt after the tense family situation. 

I asked Him to pour over Steve and I, his holiness and peace and I asked him to receive an offering of praise out of this sorrow, thanking him for coming to earth as a Savior in such a dark and wicked world.

 

I then had a thought that reminded me, that the “Christmas Star was still visible in the sky on that night and I realized the timing right then would be perfect to view from our front porch. We have this unusual glow in the West in the winter months when the sun is setting and I could see the hue as I walked toward our front door, which has glass in it. 

As I stepped out onto the porch I could see the two stars, which were a bit more separated at this point, but absolutely clear.

 

What took place next was something I have no explanation

as to where it came from, but the timing of it

was so precise and overwhelming

that I just stood there in awe, and wept.

 

A CHORUS OF VOICES BEGAN SINGING SILENT NIGHT, Holy Night, Son of God, Loves Pure Light, Radiant beams from thy holy face, with the dawn of Redeeming Grace, Jesus Lord at thy birth, Jesus Lord at Thy Birth.

There were no instruments accompanying the voices and it wasn’t coming from a house or car nearby. It was out in the open air and reverberating over our street, softly and simply.

 

Steve was coming back across the street about the time the voices began to sing and we stood there on our lawn looking at the stars growing brighter as the sky grew darker, and marveled at this singing.

It was just one song. Then no more. 

(We wondered if there was an outdoor service somewhere and maybe the sound was travelling, but the words were very clear and understandable.)

 

THE MOMENT WAS AS IF WE WERE SUSPENDED IN TIME, and the Presence of God softly fell on us and around us, and soothed our weary souls. 

We felt His Rest come upon us, and understood the awe that the shepherds must have experienced on that first real nativity night when, “Suddenly there appeared with the angel a great multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom His favor rests!”  

-Luke 2:13-14

 

ALL I CAN TAKE AWAY FROM THESE EVENTS IS THAT GOD ALMIGHTY

SEES AND KNOWS EVERY MINUTE DETAIL OF OUR EVERY DAY.

He sees our struggles and our sorrows and our love for Him as well!

 

WE ARE IN A TIME LIKE NO OTHER TIME BEFORE ON EARTH, and yet the history of evil men and women attempting to stop the power of the Savior and the King of Heaven moving on earth among His people, has been a non-stop war since time began.

 

We are to be expecting HIS evidence in the earth with great exploits

and moves of His Dynamic Force.

 

He is not unaware of our great need for His Help and Protection from filthy and evil men and women who are given over to demonic possession.

 

We live in day and age where it will take Divine Intervention

to shake the lukewarm believer out of passivity,

and for the world to know that God is Sovereign.

 

BE READY AND EXPECT SIGNS AND WONDERS.

Test them. Be alert.

Be Ready to tell of the Wonders of His Love.

 

LET EVERY HEART PREPARE HIM ROOM!

AND

LET HEAVEN AND NATURE SING OF THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE!

God_HEars_Wordar9ja.jpg

Before we go into today's podcast, I would like to let you know that this is a prophetic word from the Lord and it’s addressing where the majority of people are right now, and where many others have been. 

I’ve also been prompted by the Holy Spirit to begin sharing with you several  near-death experiences that I have had in past years as well as a few truly humbling and powerful supernatural events with the Lord that were not at all something I asked for nor expected.  

 I would like to ask you to please take the time to listen to this specific podcast as well as the next two or three.

The stories I will be sharing will not only move your heart to joyful tears, but also stir courage and hope!  

At the end of this Podcast, there is a Spontaneous Prophetic Song of the Lord that flows with the prophetic Word you will hear beforehand.

Please sit back and enter into worship and listen to what the Holy Spirit of God would sing over you in this time.

 

 God Hears All - God Sees All - God Will Not Fail You

 “A Word And a Song From the Heart of the Father”

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit

 

As the days begin to change and the seasons take their course, so am I also beginning to adjust the path you have been treading out.

“I have been keeping track of all of your sorrows,

Collecting them and all of your tears in a bottle.

I have written down your tearful sorrows…

…In My journal.”

Psalm 56:8

 

MANY HAVE PASSED YOU BY ON THE ROAD OF SORROW THAT YOU HAVE HAD TO BEAR, too busy to stop and comfort, too concerned about what others might think of your condition. Others are only focused on their own forms of grief and have yet to learn to comfort others in their weariness and tiredness.

 

I HAVE ENCOURAGED ALL OF YOU WHEN OTHERS ARE HAPPY, BE HAPPY WITH THEM!

If they are sad, share their sorrow. (Romans 12:15) Even the Samaritan, one least likely to reach out, stopped and cared for the man battered, hurt and sorrowful left on the road.

Many who claim spiritual piety and goodness, turn their heads and hearts when they see another brother or sister aching in sorrow or tragedy.

Let it not be heard about you my child in the heavenly realm, that you protected your own comforts or your own position and turned away from a brother or sister in their prolonged agony.

 

I HAVE BEEN TESTING THE HEARTS OF MANY WHO LAY CLAIM TO A WILLINGNESS TO DO ANYTHING I ASK OF THEM, but sadly then “pass on the other side" in order to avoid involvement with what "appears to be" one who is struggling or failing. As you do to others, so in your time of need will it be done to you!

I YOUR FAITHFUL REDEEMER HAVE HEARD THE HEART WRENCHING CRIES FROM YOUR PRAYERS, and I am even now giving you strength and empowerment to stay firm and continue to believe that I will restore all to you that has been shattered, stolen, or shamed!

"It is God who gives us, along with you,  t

he ability to stand firm for Christ has commissioned us.

He anointed us!"   -2 Corinthians 1:21

 

I HAVE ANOINTED YOU EVEN IN THIS SEASON OF SORROW!

And I will bring a fresh and pure expression of Godly living and giving into the earth through those we who see that they are being prepared as good Samaritans and who themselves are also being cared for by others who require nothing in repayment.

Many are hearing my voice calling to them to bring relief to those who have been faithful in obeying my voice but have been persecuted heavily for doing so!

 

OBEY MY COMMAND QUICKLY! ACT NOW!

Bless them, help them heal, providing for them like I would! You will be greatly rewarded for this effort.

“As you give them even a cup of cold water in my name,  

You have done it for Me!”   - Matthew 10:42

 

As you have been faithful to believe that I have better plans and a better way than the schemes of men, Very soon I will wipe away your bitter tears and despair.

You have begun to understand what it is to fellowship with My sufferings!

In the days ahead, you will also share in the first fruits of harvest.

"God, who has called you into fellowship

with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful."  -1 Corinthians 1:9

 

COME JUST A LITTLE NEARER TO MY HEART NOW. THE NIGHT IS NEARLY OVER.

You will see that the time of sorrow and weeping will pass, and a breaking through into the greater plan for you is in motion. I have been into the future for I AM all that you will need.

YOUR ONE SIMPLE ACT OF OBEDIENCE SETS INTO MOTION WAVES OF MY REDEMPTIVE GRACE AND PURE HOLY CLEANSING.

The Nations are waiting for those who will only speak out of clean motives and pure hearts. I have prepared you for this time in the earth and I will fulfill all I have planned concerning you.

ENTER IN BY HUMBLING YOURSELF FURTHER BY DOING SIMPLE ACTS OF MERCY AND SELFLESS GIVING.

Remaining anointed…

… Even in times of sorrow.  

 

The spontaneous prophetic music and lyrics that you are about to listen to were not edited in any way and were left just as they originally were expressed.

You are hearing the prophetic words and music exactly as they were recorded and might even hear my voice falter at times because of the strong presence of God touching me as well while recording. 

Those who stood faithful in intercession while I recorded made it like heaven on earth as they bathed the studio in the beauty of prayer and in the honoring of the Presence of the Lord.

  May the Heavenly Father sing and rejoice over you as you sit back and listen!

“Heaven is Watching You”

Prophetic Song of the Lord

UTTERLY HOPELESS UPSIDE DOWN WORLD? - F E A R IS A L I A R ! - HOPE IS A FORTRESS! Prophetic Encouragement

UTTERLY HOPELESS UPSIDE DOWN WORLD?

F E A R   IS   A   L I A R !   HOPE IS A FORTRESS!

 

Utterly_Hopeless_Upside_down7hju1.jpg

Mary Lindow

 

DO YOU FEEL AS IF THINGS ARE UTTERLY HOPELESS

AND COMPLETELY UPSIDE DOWN RIGHT NOW?

Maybe you have you been in that scary place before. Most people, if they are being transparent and honest will admit to times of experiencing hopelessness and feeling alone and afraid.

 

Friend.

You aren’t without hope,

You aren’t hopeless,

But you ARE helpless!

 

God has allowed this time and position of helplessness and complete dependency on Him, and you are helpless to help yourself.

 

We struggle to gain back some measure of control over our lives when this pressure is upon us, but our personal pride (that we didn’t even know that we had) is being crushed, and the only thing for us to do is to surrender!

 

NOW YOU MAY FEEL HOPELESS, BUT REALLY…

…IT’S THE CONDITION OF HELPLESSNESS THAT IS CAUSING YOU PAIN.

God wants you completely dependent on Him, and He will keep you a “prisoner of hope” until you are.

 

OH HOW WEARY YOU ARE OF THE AWFUL REFINER’S FLAME AND THAT SEEMINGLY ENDLESS TWEAKING OF YOUR ATTITUDE!

“Okay, God, you can stop now!" you scream.

But He doesn't stop.

 

You're caught in a prison of hope and He will not let you out until He is finished with what He began in you.

 

There are times during the process of pursuing heartfelt dreams and callings in life that you might feel that your "hope" seems to have been locked up in a prison. You can't seem to make your dreams come true, and yet, you find it impossible to stop believing in them!

 

YOU CAN'T GO FORWARD ANY FASTER THAN GOD WILL LET YOU,

and yet, you sure don't want to return to where you once were before you were overshadowed and given a "life vision" with a promise from God!

 

GOD JUST WILL NOT LET YOU GIVE UP!

During this time you might feel like saying,

"Okay God, this is enough! I don't want to hope anymore!

I am tired of being like an egg in an incubator with this promise!

I want out of this prison of hope!"

 

IT'S DURING THIS TIME THAT YOUR DREAMS FEEL SO VERY REAL TO YOU,

YET TO OTHERS THEY DON'T!

There is a big conflict between what you discern in the Spirit and what appears to be moving so slowly in the natural, and that grates at our souls!

We feel like we are on a Ferris wheel.

You have your “up times” when you can see your dream's fulfillment far into the future, but you also have your “down times” when you can't see anything and everything seems to have crashed into a messy heap.

 

YOU THINK TO YOURSELF,

“AM I CRAZY TO THINK THAT GOD COULD USE ME? NOW?

IN THIS TIME?"

The enemy comes in like a rushing flood and you begin to doubt, causing anguish to your soul.

 

THIS IS THE TIME WHEN GOD IS DOING HIS GREATEST WORK IN YOU!

This is when the refining process REALLY hurts, because He is getting down to the very core of your soul, to the deep regions of your heart.

 

HE IS DEVELOPING THINGS IN YOU

THAT YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT YOU LACKED.

THINGS THAT YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT YOU NEEDED.

 

You think, "Okey Dokey God, this is deep enough!"

But, every builder knows you must dig down deep to lay a proper foundation first, before you start to build upward. And the greater the height of the structure, the deeper the foundation must be.

 

YOUR FORTRESS OR PLACE OF REFUGE IS TRUSTING IN A LOVING GOD.

Trusting Him in spite of all the reasoning of your mind, in spite of the circumstances that surround you.

 

YOU WERE CONTENT TO GIVE GOD CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE UNTIL HE DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING WITH YOUR LIFE, YOU DIDN’T LIKE.

You were happy to surrender all to Him, until He decided to give your promotion to someone else.

 

You believe in His sovereignty, until His sovereign will conflicts with, your will.

Then you are sure He has made a mistake!

 

You want to run from Him, but He is your refuge.

How do you run from your refuge? How do you run from the only one who really loves you or understands you?

The answer is . . . you don't.

 

SO, RETURN, MY FRIEND, TO YOUR FORTRESS,

AND REMAIN A PRISONER UNTIL HE IS DONE WITH YOU - UNTIL HE DECIDES THAT YOU ARE READY FOR ALL THAT HE HAS FOR YOU.

 

Zechariah 9:12 says,

“Return to your fortress! Yes!

You prisoners who have hope!

Today I declare that I will return double what has been taken from you."

 

PROPHETIC WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT

 

The Spirit of God says,

“Even now I announce to you that not only will I restore to you all that has been taken from you, but I will give you double for all the trouble you have endured."

 

He says, "Don't stop now . . .

…Keep trusting me, because I can see your future and it is very blessed.

 

Keep walking with me and keep trusting in me and I will give you rest."

 

“Come to me all who are weary and burdened,

And I will give you rest." -Matthew 11:28

Never_Negotiate_with_distractions86o3j.jpg

 

I’M SHARING TODAY’S PODCAST WITH THE INDICATION FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT WHAT I’M SHARING IS A PROPHETIC INSIGHT FOR THOSE LISTENING OR READING REGARDING WORLD HAPPENINGS AND SPIRITUAL WARFARE.

 

A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A CRUCIAL PROJECT,

I found my life barraged and pressured by distractions of all kinds.

Now, this is not an unusual pattern.

 

DISTRACTIONS COME TO STEAL OUR PASSION, OUR PURPOSE,

GOD’S PROMISES, AND HIS PROVISION.

 

I have a scripture and a strategy that I use when distractions come to derail my focus now that really helps to keep me on track and focus on what’s in front of me. This can apply to everything from work, house cleaning, Counseling, writing and ministry, right down to sticking with the list for the grocery store, and not adding extra cheese and crackers and other goodies in the shopping basket!

 

WHEN NEHEMIAH WAS REBUILDING THE WALL,

distractions came in the form of men calling out to him, high up on his ladder, to come down to discuss “their” important matters. These men presented concerns and rumors they feared to be truth, and, they were persistent and insistent that he come down and address the matters with them immediately!

Nehemiah responds plainly,

"I cannot come down, I am doing a great work."

 

THERE ARE MANY DISTRACTIONS BEING HURLED AT THE BODY OF CHRIST CONSTANTLY.

So what do we do?

We look those distractions square in the face and we say,

"We cannot come down. We are doing a great work."

End. Of. Story.

 

WE HAVE NO TIME FOR DISTRACTIONS.

THERE'S TOO MUCH ON THE LINE.

There's restoration to be done, broken down walls and broken down people to be filled back up, truth to be told, healing to be performed, love and justice to manifest and so on.

 

AND WHILE WE ARE DOING THESE ASSIGNED BY THE LORD TASKS,  (because if they’re not assigned by the Lord then we’re basically doing our own thing, not his important work), while we are doing the assigned things from the Lord, we pray. 

And by that I mean, we dialog with God our Father, and praise, and tell Jesus about the gratitude that we have for His life that He poured out for us, and speak back to Him the words He taught us in the 4 New Testament Gospels. And we also allow the Holy Spirit of God to have access to our hearts, bringing a sweet exposure and conviction where we might need to have our hearts cleaned up and "grown up" further in the way God has mapped out for those He loves so very much.

 

When we do these things in reverence and determination as we work,

You will find that we do not have time for distractions.

 

WHEN GOD SPEAKS AND WHEN WE FELLOWSHIP WITH JESUS,

and when the Holy Spirit is busy working in the dry and hard places of our souls, as we do that in our work, every single day, we do not have time for other distractions!  We. Cannot. Come. Down.

 

WE CANNOT TAKE TIME TO BE PULLED INTO CONVERSATIONS THAT ARE WICKED, "weasely", and filled with all kinds of narratives that have nothing to do with what God has and IS doing right now right in front of us in our daily lives.

 

THAT DOES NOT MEAN WE ARE NOT TO BE INFORMED AND...

...that we are not to be advocates for godly truths. That is part of rebuilding walls that have come down in our society. But getting into non-ending dialogs and basically verbal fights with people who just want to prove a point is literally drawing us into distraction and frustration.

 

SPIRITUAL WARFARE.

It’s a Reality and Intense Fight for Good Over Evil!

Listen ever so closely to these mighty battle strategies against distractions!

Now my beloved ones,

I have saved these most important truths for last Instructions.

Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-your union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of his explosive power flowing in and through you.

 Put on God’s complete set of armor provided for us, so that you will be protected as you fight against the evil strategies of the accuser!

Your hand-to-hand combat is not with human beings, but with the highest principalities and authorities operating in rebellion under the heavenly realms. 

For they are a powerful class of demon-gods and evil spirits that hold this dark world in bondage.

Because of this, you must wear all the armor that God provides so you’re protected as you confront the slanderer, for you are destined for all glorious and godly things and will rise victorious.

- Ephesians 6: 10-13

 

FRIENDS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST GOOD AND EVIL!

We are doing a great work!

We are obeying God!

And, let’s hope that we aren’t doing it with haughtiness or an attitude of being a little better than everyone else in the way that we serve God! No way!

Someone whom God has called to rebuild or to restore and to do every day jobs, understands that the distractions of ego or the distractions of frustration, often create breaks in relationships, breaks in friendships and it kills the opportunity to have peace with God fully.

 

SO FRIENDS!

REFOCUS.

Do not negotiate with distractions.

Simply move on and put your hands to the great work before you.

Humbly. Purposefully. Without an attitude of needing to prove you’re heroic.

 

WE WORK, WE SERVE, WE LOVE AND WE FIGHT,

with our eyes focused on the One who rides at the forefront of our battles.

He’s there day and night, radiating comfort, wisdom, and grants discernment for every challenging situation that you and I will face.

 

MY FINAL PRAYER FOR YOU AS I CLOSE OUT TODAY’S PODCAST,

is from Hebrews 13:21

“May God Equip You With All You Need For Doing His Will.

May He Produce In You, Through The Power Of Jesus Christ,

Every Good Thing That Is Pleasing To Him.

All Glory To Him Forever And Ever!

Amen.”

 

STAY STEADY ON WARRIORS. 

WE CANNOT COME DOWN TO NEGOTIATE WITH DISTRACTIONS.

WE HAVE GOD’S WORK TO DO.

By the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow

 

CHILD OF MY DIVINE PLAN

The coming darkness will cause you no fear. My perfect love for you will cast out ALL fear! I will hold your hand and lead you in a way like no other. I will give you eyes that can see in the dark, but I will also hold your hand and lead you through the darkness.

For you, this present darkness will be an opportunity to help bring in the great harvest. I AM the Lord of the Harvest, and I will usher in a mighty and uncountable harvest!

Don’t’ try to count these souls don’t try to count them!

They will be coming from all directions and places and in many numbers. Those that are sitting in darkness are going to get up and run toward the light, those who are engulfed in darkness will clamor for the light.

My Chosen ones will shine bright in the darkness and they will point the way to Me. You will be like a lighthouse and a beacon in the dark and stormy seas.

YOU WILL REJOICE THAT YOU WERE CHOSEN

FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.

Yes My Chosen Ones, this will be a time of Great Harvest! You have been prepared for this great day!

You are fit and ready, now, for service. I promise, you were chosen…

…For such a time as this!

CHILD DO NOT FEAR OR DREAD THE COMING DARKNESS! Welcome it as necessary for a part of the things I have planned! You will not listen to the voice of the enemy or fall into the deceits and the deceptions of his lies if you are walking in My truth. You will be free indeed! There is great peace and security in truth. It will save you from the entanglements, and snares and traps of the enemy.

So recognize, know and embrace the truth of My Word!

It is a Gift of My love for you. When you have My wisdom to rely upon, you see with the eyes of faith into the unknown. My child, the truth will set you free from the fear of failure. For when I am leading, I will never lead you to fail, but I will lead you to be victorious.

I WILL SET YOU FREE FROM THE FEAR OF MAN, For when I am on your side tell me – Who can rise up against you?

Who dares come against My child when I the Defender and I their Protector is present? My love and my loving care are a protective shield around about them. So stand up and shine!

ARISE CLOTHED IN LIGHT! I THE LORD SHINE UPON YOU!

Arise from the depression in which circumstance have kept you! Rise to a new life! Be radiant with the Glory of My presence! For the Glory is upon you! Even though darkness shall cover earth, and darkness and deep gloom will cover the people of the world, but I the Lord, will rise upon you! Though thick dark clouds shroud the nations, your new day is dawning. People will see my glory around you! So! Arise and be Glad! The Eternal Light- Shines upon YOU! - Isaiah 60:1-2

I The LORD shall preserve you from all evil: I shall preserve your soul. I The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, And even for evermore. -Psalm 121:7- 8

I AM YOUR LIGHT AND YOUR SALVATION

So why should you be afraid?

I AM your fortress, protecting you from danger, So why should you tremble? When evil people come to devour you,

When your enemies and foes attack, They will stumble and fall. Though a mighty army surrounds you, Your heart will not be afraid. Even if you are attacked, You will remain confident.

JUST ASK OF ME - ONLY ONE THING. Let it be the thing you seek most— To live in the house of the Lord all the days of your life, Delighting in My perfect ways and meditating in My Secret Place.

For I will conceal you there when troubles come; I will hide you in My sanctuary. I will place you out of reach on a high rock. You will hold your head high above the enemies who surround you. In my Secret Place, You will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy, Singing and praising ME, the Lord of Glory - with music. Psalm 27: 1-6 I

I CONTROL HUMAN EVENTS - I GIVE RULERS THEIR POWER…

… AND TAKE IT AWAY

My name will be praised forever and forever. I AM all-powerful, and I know everything. And I am the source of wisdom and knowledge. I reveal Deep and Secret things. I know what is in the darkness. Daniel 2:20-22

MY CHILD. MOVE INTO A SIMPLER LIFESTYLE

Move nearer to My fire and My Presence where the pillar warms in the night seasons and the cloud shields from peril during the day! When you are so consumed by My glory and presence that you must do everything you can to live in it and near it, you will be a blessed person!

Blessed is the man who longs for more of Me.

To flourish in My Presence means to have no other love focus but My will! And, No secret agendas or hope of personal greatness in reward for your efforts!

Blessed are your when you persevere under trial, because you have stood the test, You will receive the crown of life, That I the Lord have promised to those who love Me. -James 1:12

WISDOM COMES FROM GOD ABOVE Intelligence comes from man’s own efforts. A Godly Character reflects inclusiveness of others, compassion, patience, brutal self-examination and honesty.

Charisma is one with flair, influence, and human wit.

It draws others into a web of hope and promise, but rarely sacrifices it’s own agenda and comfort.

Child, bow down in a holy fear of My Almighty ability to “scan your inner thoughts” and ask Me to truly renew in you a clean heart, clean motives, and clear pathways.

TO KNOW OF MY WAYS, YOU MUST KNOW ME!

To Know Me, you must spend time with ME. To spend time with Me, you must purpose, to put aside the lists of things you have to do before you can spend time with Me."

"ORDER YOUR DAYS FIRST IN MY PRESENCE, and watch the desires of your heart be fulfilled.

Man and his counsel will always fall short of the full truth of My Wisdom. I have blueprints and a Master plan for so many things yet to build upon in your life."

"COME. LET US WALK AGAIN TOGETHER."

"You are the temple, the house of My Holy Spirit. I desire to build you up in spiritual strength as you walk in prayer and conversations WITH ME. "I will fulfill your longing for peace and direction as you step up again into a heavenly trust and rest."

"PEOPLE WILL CHANGE, MAN WILL FAIL YOU, friends will turn, if they are not seeking My Voice above the clamor of the day. And you My child will fail others, if you listen to your own voice of reason and intelligence.

As you turn to Me, you will see My compassion poured out upon you and you will then have My power of pure godly compassion and Wisdom-driven grace to pour out on others."

Seek Me-with all of your heart, your longings, your heartaches, your dreams. And I will be there with arms of strength to rescue you from Despair."

You will seek me and find me-

When you seek me with all your heart. -Jeremiah 29:13

WHAT IS THIS OBSESSION THAT IS BEGINNING TO DRIVE PEOPLE AWAY

FROM RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES AND STRUCTURAL PROGRAMMING?

 

Is it fatigue from fleshly efforts?

Is it weariness with well doing?

Or!

Is it the beginning of a matter?

 

"Self Is The Blurred Veil That Hides The Face Of God From Us.

It Can Be Removed Only In Spiritual Experience,

Never By Simple Instruction."

- A. W. Tozer

 

The Lord is allowing man to have the joy and shock of coming to the end of his means of prodding and producing until he falls into a heap at the feet of the One who has the key to the place of hope and rest!

He. The King of tranquility and Divine Purpose, has the place of Sanctuary carved out in a definite place.

 

THE PLACE OF WORSHIP

" But the time is coming--it has, in fact, come--when what you're called will not matter and where you go to worship will not matter."

"It's who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That's the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself--Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration."

John: 23-24 (MSG)

 

THE CATALYST OF APOSTOLIC ORIGINS BEGAN WITH A "PLACE" OF SANCTUARY.

Those waiting for the Move of the Spirit of God in an upper room. Hiding from the world and its pressures and threats! Waiting. Worshiping.

Asking the heart questions of,

"Why are we here? What are we waiting for? Who is this all about?"

We are Again...

...In the same place.

 

AND FINALLY - AGAIN,

WE ARE SIMPLY RESTING IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THE LORD HAS BROUGHT US TO END OF THE OF THE PAST WAYS AND FORMS OF MAN.

He is preparing the way of His Power with a place of personal introspection and heart searching until we see that we must be truthful in our worship of Him. We must come into agreement with His Spirit and the way that He desires to move among those who know Him and among those who do not.

Old things are passing away. LOOK! He does a new thing!

New to us.

BUT Not To Him.

 

AS WE BECOME OBSESSED WITH THE IDEA OF NOTHING TO PERFORM,

nothing to take to task, nothing to self generate but only to "marinate" and saturate in, we see the promises He has made begin to be realized.

 

SO OFTEN AS OF LATE, IN PLACES OF MEETING AND GATHERINGS OF HUNGRY SAINTS, THE HOLY HUSH OF HEAVEN HAS FALLEN WITH SUCH SWEETNESS AND SIMPLICITY.

All the fancy trappings of "noisy worship strategy" pale compared to this heavy rich perfumed presence that descends on those who will wait upon the Lord and grow stronger. There is no need for airy or trendy teachings and thoughts. No need for the pious and well versed to instruct in well-oiled speeches implying the way to go.

As we wait.

Humble.

At His feet...

...He moves upon many within the Body to rise up and declare, to share, risk, expound and grow in the Grace of God, as well as in much Mercy.

 

HEAVEN LONGS TO KISS THE EARTH AGAIN.

The King of Heaven is descending with an unexplainable and definite wave of stillness.

It is His manifested Presence.

In His Presence. His Sanctuary.

Is fullness. Completion.

Needs met...

...And Joy.

 

COME. LET US BE MAGNIFICENTLY WRAPPED UP IN HIM!

 "O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you;

My soul thirsts for you, My body longs for you, In a dry and weary land where there is no water.

Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory."

- Psalm 63:1-2

 Chains.jpg

By Mary Lindow

Greetings Brothers and Sisters!

 I’m sure that you’ll remember the story that on Christmas Eve, Ebenezer Scrooge is locked up in the darkness of his dim house. Dickens tells us, “Darkness is cheap, and Scrooge liked it.”

Today, we still know that darkness is cheap, easy to find, and its raw materials of despair and denial are in abundant supply.

Scrooge liked darkness, as we often do, because it hides what we fear, keeps us from facing what is true, and allows us to be blind to truth. But like so many things that come cheaply, our overindulgence in them comes at great cost.

Out of Scrooge’s darkness appears the ghost of Jacob Marley, Scrooge’s former business partner. Marley comes not to haunt Scrooge, but to free him. Scrooge sees that Marley is bound in chains. “Why are you fettered?” Scrooge asks.

“I wear the chain I forged in life,” Marley says. “I made it link by link, and yard by yard,” and he tells Scrooge that the chain that will fetter him in the darkness is even longer, heavier and harder still, if he does not leave the darkness.

WOW! There is a lot of wisdom here!

Though chains placed by others might fetter us, most of our chains are forged by the part of our spiritual self that likes the darkness and shuns the light. Marley was fettered to cashboxes, deeds and ledgers, as was Scrooge.

What would fetter or chain you?

Brothers and Sisters, the life of any leader or person in some form of care, supervision or one with employees or volunteer workers, a person with a bit of over-site over others, needs to be bravely examined, fully exposed to the pure and strong light of God’s eyes and checked often for hardness of heart, the love of acumen, pride in achievements and the over lording of others.

Jesus coming into the world—God in human skin—announced what had been hoped forever, that the captive person would be released from the darkest prisons—physical and spiritual. To our inner spiritual soul, our chains and fetters will be crushed, if we are willing to leave the darkness. Like Scrooge, do we need to be “scared out”? Shaken from slumber?

Scrooge could not receive the simple gift of Christmas, so ghosts rather than grace were sent. But, the result is love.

We need the light of God’s love that by its very nature is a love that comes to give us and those we serve, value and worth, not a love that comes because we are already valuable and worthy.

The entire point of "A Christmas Carol" is that Scrooge is entirely unworthy of God’s mercy, because Scrooge has no mercy! But! Mercy and love come to Scrooge through the judgment of the ghosts, and this "transformation" makes the unworthy Scrooge, worthy again.

The light of God that comes as love, forgiveness and hope is a light that brings judgment. I know that most of us get uncomfortable when talking about God’s judgment, because we are so afraid that we are unworthy of God’s love.

But, look at Scrooge! Without God’s light, without the promise of God’s love, Scrooge is doomed!

It is love and judgment bringing him into the light. Can we now see that judgment by God as a form of God’s love? His way of exposing the darkness of our own souls? Romans 2:16 has proof of this probing of our secret lives!!

“And this is the message I proclaim--that the day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone's secret life.”

 

Oh friends! Will we ever fully learn that God does not love us because we have value, but instead, HE loves us to give us worth? Life without the pure love of God coursing through our being is a vapor and miserable! 

Let's say to the Spirit of God with all of our hearts, the words Scrooge humbly uttered after he was confronted and faced his darkened heart.

"I will honor Christmas in my heart,

and try to keep it all the year."

 

What is Christmas?

When Heaven kissed earth with the greatest act of sacrifice...

... Sending us a Redeemer.

Who is Christ the Lord?

He IS THE Spirit, of CHRISTmas!

  

Let’s Humbly Pray this prayer together,

Father God, be gracious to me I pray, according to your loving- kindness. Father, my sins are heavy against me and my soul is troubled. For the many wrongs I have done against you and for the many evil thoughts and unholy attitudes I have allowed to influence my heart, and rule my life, for far to long.

I have sought to condone my wrongdoings, and ignore the voice of my conscience within. And I ask your forgiveness for my foolish pride, in ignoring the gentle promptings of Your Holy Spirit.

Forgive me I pray, and restore to me the joy of your salvation. For you have promised that all who truly confess their sins will be forgiven and returned back into a right relationship with you - and cleansed from all unrighteousness.

Lord the sacrifice of my heart is brokenness before You, My soul is truly contrite and my desire is to return into a right relationship with you. I know that the consequences of my wrong choices may remain with me for a long time – but I ask that in Your grace and mercy You would forgive my sins and cleanse my soul and restore me into a right relationship with Yourself – and my heart will rejoice in God my Savior, in Whose name I pray,

Amen.

“I praise you because I am fearfully 

and wonderfully made;

Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Psalm 139:14

WE ARE STRANGE AND EXQUISITE CREATURES.

We can ache for God tremendously; yet find ourselves getting nervous if God gets too close!  After all, the closer God gets, the more we hear the call to be “unpolluted”.

It is both exciting and frightening to hear that call!


 A SHORT STORY

 “Once upon a time there was a little plant that was small and whose growth was stunted, for it lived under the shade of a giant oak tree.

The little plant valued the shade that covered it and highly enjoyed and relished the quiet rest that it’s majestic friend provided. Yet there was a greater blessing prepared for this little plant.

One day a lumberjack entered the forest with a sharp ax and cut down the giant oak! The little plant began to weep, crying out, “My shelter has been taken away”. Now every fierce wind will blow on me, and every storm will seek to uproot me!”

The guardian angel of the little plant responded, “NO! Now the sun will shine and showers will fall on you more abundantly than ever before! Now your stunted form will spring up into loveliness, and your flowers, which could never have grown to full perfection in the shade, will laugh in the sunshine. Many will say, "Look how that plant has grown. How gloriously beautiful it has become by removing that which was it’s shade and comfort!"


THE TRAINING OF THE SPIRITUAL COMRADE

We need to see that the Lord wisely trains his soldiers by calling them into difficult travels and service. He strengthens them through wildernesses and mountains. God knows that spiritually armed Soldiers can only be developed in battle and are not developed in times of calm. 

We can only become true seasoned soldiers of Christ when we train and serve in the preparation time of the uninviting, and at times "unfriendly"  surroundings.


TRUST FOR A SEASON!

It's all about trusting God in the end. Oh yes it is!

We often ask in the heat of difficult battles whether they are mental battles, spiritual battles, and financial battles…”Will He REALLY refresh us in this time of struggle?” 

His Loving Word says so.

 "For I satisfy the weary ones

And refresh everyone who languishes."

Jer. 31:25

 

 THE LORD IS PRODUCING STAMINA…

 …WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT!

"Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial;

For once he has been approved,

He will receive the crown of life,

Which the Lord has promised to those who love Him."

James 1:12

  

THE FATHER IS URGING US TO RUN TO HIM, TO CRY TO HIM!

He is there! Even in this fog of struggle, loss, anxiety, or even seeming success! He wants us to be desperate for Him and is training us to rely on His voice. To make our decisions based on His plan for the whole earth!

 

 TIE YOURSELF TO THE HAND OF GOD!

 Get a "rope of expectation" (the word of God) and tie yourself to it.

Hold on! The boding evil is nearly over!

 

"The night is nearly over; the day is almost here.

So let us put aside the deeds of darkness

And put on the armor of light."

Romans 13:12

 

INTIMATE PLACE OF COMMUNICATION

It would be a powerful opportunity for all of us to get on our knees in an “intimate place of communication” with the Lord, and refresh our commitment to purity and with a willing heart to yield to the bidding of the Father.

 

"They charge like warriors; 

they scale walls like soldiers.

They all march in line, 

not swerving from their course."

Joel 2:7

 

 LET OUR HEARTS WILLINGLY...

Give Him Room to Move Freely in our daily action in this Life.

We do this by clearing away or removing anything that feeds and pampers our flesh and our own concepts of the Kingdom.

 "No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs—

He wants to please his commanding officer."

2 Timothy 2:4

 

WE PREPARE HIM A PLACE

A throne in our hearts, from which He can reign and activate His anointing.

" As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. 

But as HIS anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, 

Remain in him."

1 John 2:27
