the earth is in upheaval

By the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow
 
"Whoever obeys his command will come to no harm, 
and the wise heart will know the proper time and procedure.
For there is a proper time and procedure for every matter, 
though a man's misery weighs heavily upon him."
Ecclesiastes 8:5-6
 
NOTE: At the end of this podcast there is a short spontaneous song of the Lord that was recorded in a small studio several years ago. There were other wonderful and gifted percussionists and musicians joining in as the Holy Spirit moved through us all and gave me the beautiful melody and orchestral keyboard accompaniment. My hope is that it will stir your heart to worship and be even hungrier for the Presence of the Lord in your life.
In all of our lives as believers, we face times and settings where there is a feeling of being pulled and tested, stretched, and restrained. Often, during these excruciating events, those who avoid personal character development tend to give unrestrained advice, spiritualized platitudes, and often, trumped up words of so-called prophetic inspiration to help us not suffer so!
As we begin to see the Lord's plan in all of this we also come to understand that if we are not first hearing His voice, His heart, His word in the matters that are straining us, nothing any man or woman says can bring the ultimate light of clarity and release! 

 
WINTER SPRING SUMMER AND FALL
 
We all face seasons of change that correspond much like the four seasons we observe yearly. Nothing is more surprising than to have an interruption of what we presume to be what is "normal" for an earthly expectation, in one of those seasons.
When a sudden ice snow storm blows in unexpected in the late spring in the Colorado fruit growing regions and encrusts the tender blooms on fruit trees and garden plants, we are devastated by the loss of not only the blooms, but also the fruit it could have produced. It appears as if there has been a cruel storm sent to cause crop failure.
 
WHAT IS THIS CURRENT SEASON OF DIVINE TENSION ALL ABOUT?
For many who are hearing or reading this message, you feel as if you have experienced a "Crop failure," perhaps several, and just can’t take one more aching disappointment. Many hearts have passed their tender agonies to me on paper, in emails, texts, and through the telephone.
 
ANGUISH HAS ITS OWN PERFUME 
I too have heard the whispers of the voices of darkness try to entice, with wearisome words of worry, paranoia and doubting!
"Give up!" they say! "What good is this time of shaking doing?"
"What possible good can come out of believing that there is something occurring that will bring a fresh advancement when all seems to have stalled or strained?”
And yet, another set of voices would tempt with words of esteem whispering;
"Make it happen! 
Proclaim mighty deeds and things to come with fervor, flair and well-honed words of impact!
Use it or lose it!
Promote, push, and publish! It is all yours for the taking!"
 
BOTH OF THESE VOICES COME FROM THE SUBTLETIES OF THE SOUL AND WELL OILED SPIRITUAL VOICES TRAINED BY THE PRINCE OF LIES AND FLESHLY IMPULSE.
 
But.
In the midst of these strains and attempts to distract comes a clear undeniable "Divine Tension" that pulls and stretches the heart of the humbled believer.
It calls simply, firmly, and does not lack a depth of confidence and direction.
This “Presence” causes a clash with all that seems to be "the way of man" and will not relent.
 
THE EARTH IS IN TURMOIL

It doesn't take much to understand that the earth is in upheaval, rivalry, and chaos wherever we look. There is a tangible and penetrating "tension" in the events we are seeing unfold every day. Parallel to this explosion of pure evil and lulling to sleep of many, there is a Divine Course being laid out for those who have come to the end of them.
 
ETERNITY IS IN THE SIGHTS OF THOSE LOOKING TO A KINGDOM YET UNSEEN.
The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit have been preparing a bride. 
This is done only through the shaping tools of heavenly choice.
The chisel and hammer have been at times brutal and unflinching, yet, when the soft hand of The Almighty begins to apply the oil of polishing, He does it with His own hand as well.
He makes it beautiful in His own timing, even though the “Divine Tension” seems as if it might cause us to "snap" under the pressure of His hand, smoothing away the roughness of our thoughts and soul's intentions.
 
Ecclesiastes 3:11
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
He has also set eternity in the hearts of men;
Yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
 
HEARING, REFINING, HEEDING
 
The King of all Glory is training those who have been thrust on the altar of fire to hear from Him as one who strains to catch the song of a bird in distant meadow.
It takes the "spiritual ear" and training it to identify even the slightest note or sound, however distant, and to learn to silence the sounds and voices of distraction until the  "honing in" on the sound, the glorious sound of peace, finally directs and sustains us with all that we hear.
And then, having drunk deeply of the Voice of the Beloved and Divine Counselor, quickly, without mental filing way of instructions or overthinking, we move and heed His mapping out of plans for this appointed time.
 
RISING FROM THE ASHES OF THE REFINING OF GOD

So! Unto those who hear this word from heaven, claiming you are one of Heaven's very own, know that you are being formed and fashioned into sober, clean containers, prepared for infilling.
My Spirit will fall upon those who are not seeking to lay claim to My voice, but instead HEED My voice and SEEK My face. 
They shall be examples of purity in My Kingdom and will not strive among the self-promoting and “wordy". The broken will be safe in the arms of these who have passed through the current season of being pulled and tested, stretched and restrained and they will restore the devastated.
My "faithful hearts" will not be compelled to build agendas for Me and My Presence, because I will BE the Presence that creates the Manifestations of Glory and Might in the earth, without the fanfares of men.
YOU HAVE BEEN REDUCED TO DESPERATION IN ORDER THAT I MIGHT RESTORE YOU TO INSPIRED LIVING, IN FULL FELLOWSHIP WITH ME.
Isaiah 61
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
Because the LORD has anointed me
To preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
To proclaim freedom for the captives
And release from darkness for the prisoners,
To proclaim the year of the Lords’ favor
And the day of vengeance of our God,
To comfort all who mourn, 
And provide for those who grieve in Zion
To bestow on them a crown of beauty
Instead of ashes, the oil of gladness,
Instead of mourning,
And a garment of praise, Instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
A planting of the LORD
For the display of his glory and splendor.

By Mary Lindow
Today’s podcast is one that I am going to share with you about “another wonderful story” of how the Holy Spirit can prompt us to do things for others at the most uncanny times, and as if they were perfectly orchestrated years and years beforehand.
And, of course, the Lord knows the heart desire of every one of his children, but he often uses his own children to help bring about the heart’s desire for many other people by being obedient and acting when the Holy Spirit in first Corinthians says, “Don’t you know that your body is a temple that belongs to the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit, whom you received from God, lives in you. You don’t belong to yourselves.” 1 Corinthians 6:19
 
IT WAS NEAR CHRISTMAS TIME, and a local Women’s Aglow group, which happened to be a good sized chapter, was having a Christmas ladies luncheon and asked if I would come in and be their keynote speaker. The room was decorated beautifully and of course the tables were festive for the holiday!
As I was sitting at the table next to the team members and the president of the group, there was a conversation about the beautiful table settings. I was just listening and enjoying hearing them talk about how they went about getting everything ready, and why they wanted to make it so nice for so many other women that were coming, because many of them worked full-time jobs and didn’t get a chance to come and partake of beautiful things during the holidays because they were also busy mothers.
 
ONE OF THE LADIES BY THE NAME OF BILLY WAS SHARING WITH EVERYONE THAT SHE HAD JUST GONE SHOPPING WITH HER DAUGHTER A FEW WEEKS AGO, and they had picked out Wedding China for her daughter and her husband, because her daughter was going to be married in the spring. She went on to say that she never did get to have Wedding China as a young bride and wanted her daughter to have a beautiful experience and opportunity to have a beautiful table.
 
I THOUGHT, "WHAT A WONDERFUL THING THIS WAS THAT THIS WOMAN WAS GETTING CHINA FOR HER DAUGHTER, AND THAT SHE HAD NEVER HAD WEDDING CHINA HERSELF." She went on to mention that she had picked out a special pattern herself as a young bride, but that it was just not possible for her family and friends to give wedding china at that point, because it was a very frugal wedding, and other wedding gifts were more important.
I sat there and wondered about how wonderful it was for her as a mother, to be so concerned that her daughter would have a beautiful table to set with beautiful things, when she herself had never had any. Now, it was time for me to get up and share my Christmas message so I did, and afterwards told her how beautiful her story was to me about her daughter, and proceeded to go home for the day.
On my way home, I began to remember that I have been given an entire set a Fine China from a dear friend, whom I had come to know while I was in Bible College.
 
NOW, THIS IS WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING!
This dear, godly, lovely man would take on students to help with jobs or different kinds of projects in his home or, other derelict properties that he would buy, and train them and also pay them so they could pay for their Bible college fees. He had been in the military with a high clearance type of job, and although he had wanted to marry, he knew that he would never be able to be home enough to justify caring for a bride. At 63 he began to take students into his home for meals and storytelling, and developing them for skill sets. He had been a trainer for all kinds of business components of the military.
WHEN I MET HIM WHEN IMMEDIATELY HAD A BOND because he was also a gifted musician, and had a love for Fine art and Fine China. He would go to the thrift stores or take me along and different places where very wealthy Texans would drop off Crystal and China and dishes and silver that they were no longer using. So he was forever scouting out Havilland china pieces or different kinds of China to add to his collection. I went on to meet my husband and marry him later and we moved to Illinois. (That’s where my husbands from.)
THIS LOVELY MAN BY THE NAME OF ALAN would occasionally sent boxes of pieces of things that he would find to add to a side of China for me, and I did have wedding China of my own. At one time we had three full sets of Fine China and I wasn’t sure what to do with all of it! Then came two boxes that he had found of a 1950s china pattern that he thought was exquisite! I had opened the boxes and noticed there were eight place settings, eight cups and saucers, eight salad plates, eight serving plates, and also a creamer and sugar set as well as a large serving bowl.
 
SOMEHOW, I NEVER FELT LIKE THESE WERE TO BELONG TO ME, and I really didn’t have storage for them. So, I put them away in a cupboard thinking that someday if we moved and I had a China hutch for them, I would use them as spring dishes. They had a platinum rim, they were white and off to the right side there was a spray of flowers that had a lot of teal and a little bit of touch of pink and a hint of orange, and of course soft green.
 
STEVE AND I WERE THEN CALLED TO GO HELP PIONEER A CHURCH IN MISSOURI, so we packed everything up and moved those dishes and everything else to Missouri. And understand these dishes have been shipped from Dallas Texas to Illinois. Now they were taking a trip to Missouri!
 
ABOUT TWO YEARS LATER STEVE AND I DECIDED THAT WE WERE GOING TO MOVE BACK TO DENVER, COLORADO BECAUSE THE LORD HAD PROMPTED US TO DO SO. So once again, we packed everything up and moved to Denver. There I was in Denver speaking at a Women’s Aglow Christmas banquet luncheon and I hear this woman-discussing find China for her daughter.
 
NOW! BACK TO ME ON MY WAY HOME. 
The thought came to me, (prompted by the Holy Spirit) “Why don’t you give that set of China to Billy? What a wonderful Christmas gift it would be to gift to her, and she would have a lovely set of China for her own home.”
I was absolutely thrilled to think that this would belong to someone else, and that the Lord would want me to give it to them. But I wasn’t sure if it was a pattern she would want or not.
 
BUT THE PERSISTENT NUDGING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT…
… WOULD NOT GO AWAY!
 
I went into our basement storage area and found the two boxes and everything was still pristine and in great condition. I wrote a quick card, and told her that I felt like the Lord wanted me to give these to her after listening to her conversation about buying China for her daughter and then that I just wanted to bless her with it so she would have a beautiful table at Christmas time. I did get a hold of her telephone number and called and told her that I was having my husband and two little boys run some boxes by, just a little something for her. Would she be home? She said of course she would and she said she was “quite intrigued”.
I BUNDLED UP THE BOXES AND HELPED MY HUSBAND GET THE TWO LITTLE BOYS INTO THE CAR AND OFF THEY WENT TO DO THE DELIVERY. I was downstairs folding laundry, and just thinking about how much I hoped it blessed her, and that she would be tickled that the lord thought of her.
 
 NOW COMES THE MOST EXCITING PART!
The phone starts ringing and I went upstairs and I missed it. (This is back when Cell Phones were way too expensive for everyone and we still had a landline with a long cord!)
Then the phone started ringing again, so I quickly answered the phone, and on the other end, there was the sound of someone gasping and crying! Now Being a pastor's wife, we often received calls from people who were in distress or who were needing prayer, so, I began to saying, “Hello? Who’s there? Can I help you?” Finally, the person on the end of the line was able to clear their throat and gather their emotions, and it was Billy the lady who Steve had dropped the China off to.
 
SHE BEGAN SAYING, “OH MARY! YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU HAVE DONE!” And of course I didn’t, and I wasn’t sure if it was a good thing or a bad thing, but I could tell that she was overcome! She then began to tell me that when the boxes arrived, she was tickled to think that someone thought of her, and my husband said my wife wanted to give these to you and wish you a Merry Christmas. But, when she closed the door and went to open the packages, she reached in and pulled out one of the dinner plates that was in a slotted cardboard area. The China pattern was the EXACT China pattern that she had wanted as a young bride, but never had. It had the platinum rim that she had desired to have on her pattern! And there were eight place settings, just enough for her Christmas table and her family that was coming to feast. Also, she was able to set a beautiful place setting and table, for the Mother of the Groom, who was going to come and visit.
 
THIS WOMAN WAS WEEPING AND LAUGHING, AND COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT THE LORD WOULD HAVE HELD ONTO THIS CHINA FOR HER ALL THESE YEARS. I told her that they have been given to me and shipped from Dallas to Illinois to Missouri to Denver. Imagine! The Lord had shipped those dishes, and had me move them “strategically”, until they got into the hands of the woman that he had planned to bless them with!
 
MY FRIENDS, GOD KNOWS THE DESIRES OF OUR HEARTS even down to the simple things like Fine China, and he knows that soft and beautiful things, in specific times of our life are so necessary, to show us how lavish and beautiful his care and love for us is.
 
THE STORY GOES ON BECAUSE MANY OF HER FRIENDS THEN BEGAN TO HEAR THE STORY ABOUT “THE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE CHINA”, and they began to give her serving pieces that matched, or Silver pieces or Crystal, and one friend even gave her a set of family silverware to accompany her beautiful table. Everyone wanted to get in on the beautiful moment!
 
WHEN STEVE CAME HOME, WE JUST PUT OUR ARMS AROUND EACH OTHER AND LAUGHED AND CRIED at the joy of knowing the Lord had those dishes, literally moved and sent on his behalf, to this darling woman.
 
I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO NEVER, EVER, MINIMIZE THE FACT, THE HOLY SPIRIT ASKS YOU TO DO SOMETHING FOR SOMEONE ELSE.
It could be something as simple as giving them a beautiful scarf that you are no longer wearing, or perhaps you have tools in your garage that you’re not using.
IT’S IN THE ACT OF GIVING
THAT THE PRESENCE OF GOD COMES DOWN
AND TRANSFORMS WHAT WE ARE GIVING, INTO HOPE.
 
 
GIVING IS NOT THE NATURE OF THE DARK WORLD! Taking and grasping and hoarding is from the dark part of the world. But we as believers are to give freely because we have freely received everything we could ever need to save us from the doom and darkness of this world.
When Christ himself came and gave his life as a lamb, as a child, he gave his life to us in the form of an infant so that when his day to die up on the cross came; he could truly say that he experienced life like we have, from cradle to grave.
 
AS WE ALL BEGIN TO DE-CLUTTER AND PUT AWAY CHRISTMAS ITEMS, I would encourage you to look at through the lens of what you have, and ask the Lord, “Is this something that I need to be sharing with someone else?”
Is there another set of silverware in your house that you are not using that another family might need?
Do you have several pairs of sports tennis shoes that you purchased and realized you don’t like them and they’re practically brand new?
 
FIND A FAMILY, FIND SOMEONE WHO NEEDS THEM.
And yes, you have to look for them sometimes, but the Lord will direct your path because you are led by the Holy Spirit and you belong to Him, and the Holy Spirit wastes NOTHING!
 
WE ARE LIVING IN A TIME WHERE THE BODY OF CHRIST
IS BEING CHAMPIONED AND CHALLENGED TO LEARN
HOW TO CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER AND MEET ONE ANOTHER’S NEEDS SO THAT NONE ARE LACKING.
There’s no place in the Bible that talks about hoarding or keeping everything to us. None whatsoever. But it does talk about sharing and at times, “sacrificial giving to others” so that they may know the love of Christ.
I encourage you to go through your canned goods to look at your bedding, sheets, extra coats, and by all means that dozens of Bibles that we all have sitting on our shelves in abundance! There are those who would give anything to have a new Bible or perhaps a warmer winter coat.
 
WE CANNOT LOOK DOWN ON THOSE WHO ARE SLIGHTLY IMPOVERISHED OR IMPOVERISHED,
BECAUSE THERE’S NOTHING "MORE GODLY" ABOUT BEING WEALTHY, THAN THERE IS ABOUT BEING POOR.
 
GOD JUDGES THE INTENTION OF OUR HEARTS,
NOT THE ABUNDANCE OF OUR WALLETS.
 
THERE ARE THINGS AROUND YOU THAT THE LORD HAS PLACED WITHIN YOUR REACH and maybe even you have moved from state to state or move from one house to another that you could easily ask him about and ask him to prompt you to show you who is this to go to.
You may be sitting in a restaurant and hear someone talking about something they need and you may be prompted by the Holy Spirit that you are the one that has it.
It takes simple listening.
It just takes simple listening!
It doesn’t take a Herculean effort.
But love acts!
 
ONCE WE SECOND-GUESS OURSELVES and never stop and buy that cup of coffee for the person in front of us that seems downtrodden. Or, we wonder if that $20 towards someone’s grocery bill in front of us makes any difference, then we miss out on the blessing. But you see it’s not for us to question the amount or the moment! It’s for us to act in loving grace and humility and kindness, and in that moment change the world!
 
HEAVEN COMES DOWN AND MEETS THE NEED AND KISSES SOMEONE’S HEART WITH HOPE, AND HE USES US TO DO IT.
 
I wish you all a beautiful week as you prepare  for this up-and-coming year.
My message after the first of the year is going to talk about “Peace in the midst of chaos” because the world is becoming more chaotic, and unfortunately the world is covered with a gross darkness right now.
Believers need to be strengthened encouraged not to quit, not to hide, and certainly not to hoard!
I BLESS YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS AND I PRAY NOW THAT HE WILL TOUCH YOU AND GUIDE YOU AND SHOW YOU WHAT TO DO WITH THE THINGS THAT YOU DO HAVE, THAT YOU CAN GIVE FREELY. And, perhaps there are things that you are feeling a tug at your heart that you need to give but they’re going to cause a little pain to give away. That’s OK! The Lord does love, sacrificial, giving, and above all, he loves a joyful giver!
 
THERE IS NOTHING MORE JOYFUL THAN TO SEE THE ABSOLUTE SURPRISE AND DELIGHT ON THE FACE OF SOMEONE THAT YOU HAVE BLESSED IN KINDNESS, AND WITHOUT FANFARE.
 
Have a beautiful and Happy New Year, but above all, pray that the Lord would show you what he has to say to you in 2023 specifically for your life  and what kind of assignments he has for you.
 
THE CHURCH IS BEING CALLED UP TO BE THE FULL ARMORED BODY OF CHRIST, AND MY FRIENDS THAT MEANS YOU AND I.
Goodbye for now please go to my website at www.marylindow.com where you can listen to this podcast directly there or you can read and listen to other things that I have posted there and a few videos.
I say thank you to all of you who have been so gracious to send beautiful Christmas cards and little notes in the mail and also emails with encouraging words, sharing what these podcasts and stories I’ve been doing mean to you.
And I thank those of you who have been prompted by the Lord to support this next year of ministry. Your response has been a bit overwhelming and I thank you for your help, and also I think you more than anything for your prayers for I truly do feel them.
God bless all of you.

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit
 
Jeremiah was known as the 'weeping prophet’. 
Some say he was called at the age of 17. 
 
He was called to reprove a crumbling nation. The Israelite nation. 
Unfortunately for them they didn’t  listen to him. But during his day, people were so hardened by sin that they neither believed God nor feared him. They seem to find Jeremiah's constant warning of judgment overbearing and frankly, annoying.
 
It's the same with us now. 
Those that hear our warning find us obnoxious! 
But as believers we are supposed to follow God's instructions to warn a lost and dying world of upcoming judgment. Even though most are not listening, we still have to persevere in courageously speaking truth in order to rescue some from the terrible judgment that will inevitably come. If we are so easily discouraged at fighting the rude behavior of our peers what are we going to do, when we are confronted by demons? 
 
The LORD rebukes Jeremiah for his impatience, in Jeremiah 12:5 saying, 
“If you have raced with men on foot and they have tired you out, Then how can you compete with horses? If you fall down in a land of peace [where you feel secure], Then how will you do among the lions in the flooded jungle thicket beside the Jordan?”
 
If we are distraught when we can't make a car payment, what will we do when we lose our job?
If the footmen weary you what will the horses do?
 
If we are distressed at the terrorism going on overseas, what will we do when it’s in our own neighborhoods? Because it already is!
If the footmen weary you what will the horses do?
 
If we are overwhelmed with the work we have now, what will we do when a double or triple portion is required of us? 
If the footmen weary you what will the horses do?
 
God is reminding Jeremiah (and us) that there is much more to be concerned about than what we’re complaining about . 
There is something ahead of us in this season my friends that is of more concern than petty grievances against those who seem to be better off or live easier than we do. 
God is telling Jeremiah “ If you are not able to encounter lesser dangers, how will you be able to overcome greater ones?” 
Jesus said to us in John 16: 33 “I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! Take Courage! I have overcome the world.”
 
It’s natural that our hardest days and most difficult trials are ahead of us, not behind us. If you are worried and in great upset about these things, what are you going to do when you are forced to face extremely difficult trials and troubles that are most certainly just around the bend?
 
Matthew Henry said, “The faith even of strong believers may sometimes be sorely shaken and ready to fail them. There will be storms that will try the firmest anchors.”
Now, Isn’t that the truth? 
Jeremiah was consumed with grief about the prosperity of the wicked in Anathoth when just in a short time He would be beaten in Jerusalem by order of the priest Pashhur (instead of worrying about the prosperity of heathens in Anathoth, he was about to be severely punished by a priest in Jerusalem). 
 
Let's take a sneak peek of what is in store for Jeremiah:
“He had Jeremiah the prophet beaten and put in the stocks at the Upper gate of Benjamin at the LORD's temple.” Jer. 20:2
 
God saw this coming when Jeremiah was crying about the prosperity of the wicked!
If Jeremiah had known what was going to happen ahead of him, He wouldn't have wasted time complaining about the men of Anathoth. Jeremiah was concerned about something insignificant when something greater needed his attention. 
And, His own family was secretly conspiring against him — they spoke well of him to his face but were trying to incite a mob against him behind his back. They seemed to be friendly but they were really his enemies.
 
God's faithful servants shouldn't think it's strange that their enemies are in their own family, some living under their own roof.
 
Jesus told us in Matthew 10:34-35 
“For I have come to turn a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. A man's enemies will be the members of his own household.”
 
So friends, If the footmen weary you what will the horses do? 
I know I keep repeating the statement because it’s what the Holy Spirit would have me consistently say so that you hear the challenge and that you are strengthened to stand up and be courageous, now!
 
God's answer to Jeremiah was to be absolutely determined to stay solid and immovable in his walk with God, because there were bigger trials ahead of him that needed his attention. But God does let him know what will happen to Israel and her enemies. Although God punishes Israel by allowing her enemies to overtake the land, God would not let her enemies sacrilegiously use that land which belongs to Israel. Even their land is blessed!
“But after I uproot them, I WILL AGAIN HAVE COMPASSION and will bring each of them back to his own inheritance and his own country.” (Jeremiah 12:15)
God will again deliver his people from their enemies by uprooting them just as he did when they were suffering in Egypt. 
 
God shows that even his enemies may receive compassion and grace.
“And if they learn well the ways of my people and swear by my name, saying, 'As surely as the LORD lives' even as they once taught my people to swear by Baal – then they will be established among my people.” (v.16)
 
God's Expectation Is Plain. 
If Israel's enemies would pay homage to God the way they did for Baal, (a dead and dumb idol) if they could humble themselves to follow the God of Israel instead of teaching Israel to follow idols they would be rewarded, but if not...
“'But if any nation does not listen, I will completely uproot and destroy it,' declares the LORD” (v. 17)
 
God's call and Plan and Instructions for us can be summed up in 
I Corinthians 16:13 “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” 
 
Our greatest difficulties are ahead of us, not behind us.
(If our troubles were always behind us, we would never grow as a Christian.) 
We mustn’t waste time complaining about petty things. 
Quickly put on your helmet, take up your sword and shield, tighten your armor and get ready! Get ready to run with the horses!
 
God offers Jeremiah a beautifully wise word picture for him to consider. 
He essentially asks Jeremiah, “If footmen weary you, what will the horses do?” 
 
Paul referred to life as a race. 
Makes sense, after all, it has a beginning, a middle, and a strong determination to finish strong. It requires endurance, patience, devotion and a resolution to finish strong. At the end of his life Paul said, “I have finished the race.” And referring to Jeremiah's race God is saying: If running with others on foot, when everything is equal, what are you going to do when they are given horses?
 
In this verse the prophet Jeremiah has been complaining about his persecutors. God Divinely answers, and warns Jeremiah about his impatience, and then tells him that harder trials are in store for him. 
What? More distressing times? 
 
We all have had the experience of how in our lives, there are long stretches of uneventful days, and then, generally without warning, some crisis is sprung on us, which demands quite a different set of gifts to cope with it. Our monsoons in Colorado, generally come without any warning from a falling barometer.
 
We can at any moment be confronted with some hard duty which will exhaust our energy. We may at any moment be plunged in some huge calamity and the quiet course of our lives for years suddenly is interrupted with fierce storms and devastating fallout. 
 
We won’t always have the easy foot race with footmen; there will some times come a call to strain our muscles to keep up with the gallop of the cavalry. We will have to struggle to keep our feet in the rising waters of difficultly, and must not expect to have a continual leisurely life in ‘a land of peace.’
 
With the power of Jesus in our spirits we shall never have to attempt
a duty that we are not first strengthened by Him to take on. 
And we never have to face a danger in which He won’t defend us. 
 
With His life in us we will be ready for the long hours of uneventful, unexciting duties, and for the short spurts that make precise calls on each of us to respond to. We ‘WILL run and not be weary; we will walk and not faint.’ 
 
As I finish this podcast I’d like to share what Oswald Chambers said about patience during the time of great difficulty and when the world is filled with uprising.  It is so powerful and quite comforting.
 
The Duty of Patience
"Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth" (Rev. 3:10).
Jesus says we are to keep the word of His patience. There are so many things in this life that it seems much better to be impatient about. 
The best picture to explain this is that of an archer: 
He pulls the bow string further and further away from his bow with the arrow solidly fixed in its slot, then, when it is adjusted, with his eye on the target he lets it fly. 
The Christian's life is like that. God is the archer. 
He takes the saint like a bow which He stretches, and we get to a certain point and say,"I can't stand any more, I can't stand this test of patience any longer," but God goes on stretching. 
He is not aiming at OUR TARGET mark, but at His own, and the patience of the saints is that we hold on until He lets the arrow fly straight to His goal.
 
Are you ready for a time of strengthening to come into your life? 
The Lord promises that a dramatic transformation will take place in us when we abandon our agenda and open ourselves to His plan for us. 
 
We can see this so clearly in the life of Saul before he had become the Apostle Paul. Saul had been intent upon his own evil strategy to persecute Christians. Then came his life-changing encounter with Jesus, when he asked the most important question of all in Acts 9:6: 
“Lord, what do YOU want me to do?”
 
Are you ready to ask the Lord that same question? 
Are you ready to give up your own fruitless designs in return for God’s better plan?
Let’s pray that together now.
Lord Jesus, I have been moving forward persistently with my own thoughts and plans. I have been intent upon seeing those accomplished. Now I see that despite my good intentions, my plans may not be in line with Yours.
Right now, I humble myself before You. 
I take this moment to ask, “Lord, what do You want me to do?” 
In Your presence, I place my agenda on the shelf, and I open my heart and my hands to Your plans and purposes.
I belong to You, Lord. Please forgive me for any stubbornness that may have captivated me. 
I pull down that stronghold right now—any thought that needs to be taken captive to the obedience of Christ. 
I place my future in Your hands, Lord Jesus. 
Have Your way—and only Your way—in my life. Amen.

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.”

THIS MESSAGE WILL CONFIRM MANY OF THE THINGS
THAT YOU HAVE STARTED TO SEE COME TO PASS
 
I’d like to welcome you to my podcast today with a greeting to those who are listening and who were wondering where is the podcast that I had promised regarding a very intense, vivid, open vision, that I had from the Lord (that I had said I was going to share with you the following week) from my last podcast.
 
AS I BEGAN TO PREPARE FOR THAT, I JUST COULD NOT GET IT TO COME TOGETHER, and I was striving and I was fighting it. So I got quiet before the Lord and asked him what I was to do. As I was in prayer, I had the impression from the Lord that there was something that I needed to prepare. He began to remind me that I had not done a review of the year 2022. Now, I usually do this midyear, after I’ve had a word at the beginning of the year from the Lord, or, that year that we are in.
 
AS I BEGAN TO PREPARE AND LOOK AT THAT WORD,  I realized that it was in fact, something that I needed to use as a springboard to share what the Lord had given me in the vision.
And then the word came to me from the Lord,
“First A Review Before The New”.
 
The Lord was letting me know that there was a little bit of reviewing, and again, sometimes we need to look at what the Lord has spoken to us previously and check our hearts, and also see if we have obeyed him, or if there is something we missed before we can really get a full handle on what he is trying to say to us currently.
I’M GOING TO REVIEW THAT WITH YOU FIRST, AND, ALSO THE LORD BROUGHT BACK TO ME A VERY STRONG WORD THAT I HAD IN THE YEAR OF 2016.   IT WAS TITLED  "THE GREAT COMING WHIRLWIND" AND IT WAS A PROPHETIC INSIGHT FROM THE LORD.
 
WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT WHIRLWIND RIGHT NOW,
SO THE WORD HAS TAKEN TIME TO DEVELOP AND TO PROCESS
AND TO COME TO PASS.
 
I had several of you comment to me that this for some reason, struck a chord with you and that you were deeply moved, especially one of my good friends who is a pastor in St. Louis Missouri, a pastor by the name of Harry Schroeder, who said the seemed to really, stand out to him, so thank you Harry for letting me know back then that the Lord did hold on to something in peoples hearts with this.
That is the second part of the review that the Lord would have me share again, in order to make sure that we have listened or “listen to” what the Holy Spirit has said, and what he is saying to his churches.
 
THIS WILL CONFIRM TO MANY OF THE THINGS THAT YOU HAVE BEGUN SEE COME TO PASS, but needed a reference point to remind you, that you had heard from the Lord, or that what I’m sharing with you as confirmation, for the things that you have been questioning and wanting to somehow have answers to.
 
BEFORE WE BEGIN, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY HELLO TO OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN SINGAPORE. I have noticed that many of you are listening to the podcast, and I feel like the Lord would help me encourage you to not be afraid at this time, to be bold and courageous in sharing the love of Christ.
I KEEP HAVING THE NAME OF SOMEONE BY THE NAME OF “TING” WHICH IS SPELLED  - T  I  N  G -  being impressed upon my heart by the Lord. 
This name, (I think it’s a female) but the Lord just simply said. “Tell Ting that you have been called to be an evangelist to your nation, and that the Lord wants you to be bold and courageous, and he wants you to know that if you open wide your mouth, he will fill it with the words that will begin to change hearts. Start with a small gathering in your home and begin to just lovingly share, as with dear friends, your own story. You don’t need to make it a big loud story, nor do you need to perform. Simply say,  “I want to tell you the story of what has changed my life”.  The Lord is going to enter that room with his Holy Spirit Presence, and hearts are going to be tenderly touched, as you boldly and courageously share.  Jeremiah 1:8-9 and 10 say,  “Be not afraid of their faces for I am with you to deliver you says the Lord, then the Lord put forth his hand and touched my mouth and the Lord said to me, “behold I’ve put my words in your mouth.
See! I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and pull down and to destroy, and to throw down, and to build and to plant.”
 
THE TITLE OF THIS PODCAST IS CALLED,
“A REVIEW BEFORE THE NEW” OR, “A RE-view” BEFORE THE NEW.
In 2022 I had a word for the Lord for that year, and I’m going to share with you “in review”, the prophetic word from the Spirit of God, that is most important and a kind of an introductory for what we’re about to enjoy next podcast regarding this vision that I had.
I believe the vision is right where we are literally moving into right now, in the world, in the Body of Christ, and literally all over the globe.
 
The prophetic word from the Spirit of God was/is called,
“FOR THOSE FACING THE NARROWING PATH”, (2022)
The word said this;
“Darker and broader and louder come the shouts of world to draw you into its intricate webs.
These webs of deceit are spun with silken tongues and with the softness of the promise of an easier life.
There is a reckoning coming to those that sell lies and imprison those who buy their wares.
But for those who are determined to not walk on a fence, trying to balance between their own thinking and me, there will be a “Divine Might” that will empower them to continue down the narrowing way.
 Where does this narrowing journey lead? 
What is the payoff at the end?
As you become more determined and lay aside the things that have hindered you over and over again from fully entering into the deeper places with me, a lightness and freedom will propel you toward a place of Living Light.
That Light is Me, and you will soon know Me in a different way than you have in past years and seasons.
My one warning to many is that they cannot argue that the path is “too narrow”. 
What mankind might call “rigid” I call “Straight and Direct”. 
If you choose to alter the plans that I have set down for your protection and safety, you will grieve my Spirit and allow a searing of your conscience to override the truths that you know deep in your heart.
“The path of those who do right is straight and smooth. I, who am upright, make the way of the righteous level.” -Isaiah 26:7
 
“The Narrowing” has begun to increase, and the love for it has decreased among those who choose to remain passive to conviction and pure living. 
Allow my Holy Spirit to move freely again.
I know what I must do, to break the constraints of man. Let me move!
Are you afraid that I might be ridiculed?
Or, are you more concerned for your image and patterns before men? 
 
“Do not stifle the Holy Spirit. Do not scoff at prophecies, But test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good.”
-I Thessalonians 5:19-21
 
Choose the “Narrowing Way”.  For I, Am there. 
Choose the pathway of “rightness” with me, even when others scoff at your “narrow mindedness”.
When the days become darker and the world tilts and twists in further unrestrained darkness, You will be the carrier of My Light, which can lead the lukewarm and lost, down the narrow, but safe, and integral way, to Me.
 
“THE GREAT COMING WHIRLWIND”
 
By the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow
 
“The LORD is slow to get angry, but his power is great,  And he never lets the guilty go unpunished. 
He displays his power in the whirlwind and the storm. The billowing clouds are the dust beneath his feet.” -Nahum 1:3 
 
We Are In High-Pressured Days That Seem As If Everything Around Us
Is In A Great Whirlwind.
The noise coming from the media, the weather patterns, the sounds of war, the sounds of people crying out for “Justice” and the sounds of people crying out because they feel like there's been too much “In-justice”.
 
The Lord Would Like To Speak These Words In This Hour To Those That Have Ears To Hear. 
I know there are many prophetic words being ushered into the media outlets by so many people and many have been spoken out in meetings and conferences.  I wish that I could tell you that every single voice you're listening to and every promise that is being made to you regarding great wealth, great promotion, and great open doors are accurate. But deep down inside of your spirit-man, there is something stirring that you cannot explain. It's that knowing that something is coming, that something has begun out there in the world that we cannot see, but that we know in the spirit.
 
We Are In A Time Like None Other On And In The Earth. 
But, we do have reference points to go to that tell of similar warnings and events that took place in the past. We can remember when Lot chose to go for the things that were more pleasing to his flesh and where he would have more abundant provision and opportunity for business trade, but in the end he was stuck in the city where there was nothing but illicit sex, graft, stealing and robbing, and eventually total desolation and demolition. Even as the Lord provided a way of escape, his wife still had the smell, the stench of the worldly life in her heart, and she turned around to look one more time, fondly, over her shoulder, at the home that she dreaded to leave behind.
 
Look At The Days Of Noah When He Was Mocked And Laughed At. He did not build that famous ark in a month! No! It took a long, long period of time to build the ark out in the middle of nowhere!   A simple study of the Bible text shows that the time from when God told Noah to build the ark, till the rain fell was no longer than about 75 years.
And yet he obeyed God. If we read carefully, it says that the Lord himself drew the animals to the ark. First, it is necessary to note that Noah was not told to gather the animals. He was commanded only to build the Ark, large enough for all the animals, and simply receive the animals when they arrived. "And of every living thing of all flesh, . . . two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive" (Genesis 6:19-20).
 
I Want To Encourage All Of You To Understand Clearly
That There Is A Whirlwind Coming.
In Jeremiah 23:19 God is talking about a whirlwind that He has sent—a violent windstorm. The false prophets have said, "No bad is coming" (verse 17). God says, "Do they ever listen to me? I've said, 'I'm sending a whirlwind, and it's going to fall on the heads of the wicked.' How dare they say that everything is going to be okay!”?
What is coming is bigger and broader and wider and more destructive than anything else that we have ever seen.
I don't know if it's a nuclear war!
I don't know if it's bizarre weather patterns!
And I don't know if it's not just a whirlwind of new kinds of ideas being foisted upon mankind.
 
What I Do Know Is This. 
There are people who are aware in the spirit that the only stronghold in place right now, a place of immunity and safety, is in prayer and in surrendering to all that the Lord is asking of them.
Many of you are stretched beyond the point that no one can understand. Their financial resources have been given and given again to help others, and yet their own supply seems to be dwindling. There are those who have poured into the lives of others, poured into businesses, poured into mentoring and training others, and yet it appears as if when they reach out there's nothing left in the pantry for them. 
 
The Lord Wants Those Of You Who Have Been Giving, Giving, Giving
- To Check Your Hearts One More Time.
If HE told you to give and to serve and to sacrifice, then you can be guaranteed one thing. He does not withhold from those who have been faithful.
“But this I say, He which sows sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which sows bountifully shall reap also bountifully. - 2 Corinthians 9:6 
"And God, who supplies seed for the sower and bread to eat, will also supply you with all the seed you need and will make it grow and produce a rich harvest from your generosity." -2 Corinthians 9:10
 
I want to encourage you right now in the spirit to understand the time that we are in, is a time when nothing is making sense when trying to apply the past patterns and methods or, the natural way of living. 
 
It's Going To Take A Determined, Dogged, Supernatural Approach
To Understand The Seasons The Days And The Times.
God already understands all of this, but He is not going to communicate to people who will then try to communicate it in natural terms to those who don't have ears to hear. He's going to communicate truth and wisdom to those were willing to allow their own hearts to go into the fire of refining and changing the way that they have done things in the past.
 
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.”
-Psalm 111:10
 
DIFFICULTIES REQUIRE NEW STRATEGIES.
Hard times require sober minds and the determination not to be towed under by destruction and despair.
 
We Are Not To Be Focusing On The Noise In The Whirlwind Around Us In This World, even though it sure does draw our attention from the left and the right! We are to instead, focus on a specific path, a narrowing of vision and a “one direction” place.
 
 And what exactly does that all mean?
It means that we are to seek the Face of the Father. 
And I mean seek and to seek, and to seek again. Continually.
“Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.”
-1 Chronicles 16:11 
 
WE HAVE GOT TO BREAK DOWN THOSE THINGS
THAT ARE HOLDING BACK THE MOVE OF GOD
IN ALL DENOMINATIONS OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH. 
 
It will only come by Seeking His Face,
Seeing His Heart for people
And 
Hearing His Plans for them, and for us!
Oh how the Father wants to bring a fresh move of his presence through His word and through His glorious goodness and mercy!
 
HE IS GOING TO BRING CORRECTION TO ALL DENOMINATIONS 
All walks that claim to have Jesus Christ as the head of the faith! So many smugly think that because they have been charisma tics or that they have been “spirit-filled” they have a higher attained level of wisdom and discernment! This is nothing but plain arrogance. If anything, there should be a more refined level of humility and thankfulness for the fact that we have access through the gifts to flow in the fruits of the Spirit.
 
“The LORD Almighty has a day in store for all the proud and lofty, for all that is exalted (and they will be humbled).” -Isaiah 2:12
 
THE HOLY SPIRIT WOULD SAY THESE WORDS TO US TODAY
“Yes, the winds are blowing and they are harsh winds and some are absolutely destructive winds! Everything that does not stand under the power of my word and is not anchored in Me shall be shifted and blown and shaken, and at times the winds of drastic change will draw away the dross from the wheat.
I am sifting and shaking, and shaking and sifting again and again until my people understand they do not live in a time where making demands and commands to Me operate well.
I am looking for a people who will bow low enough before Me and get quiet and seek My will, MY WILL for planet earth! This world is fading away quickly and mankind is corrupted each day more and more to go the way of the flesh.
YOU MUST PUT AWAY THE NOISE!  You must put away the noise in your life and enter into the place were in the center of the storm is the eye. 
MY EYE is upon the righteous, My eye is upon those that are fruitful and faithful, and fruitful to Me may be different than fruitful to you!
 You cannot serve two masters, yet many have tried to justify the shutting away of My convicting voice when I have told them to go back and make right the situations where they have done grievous damage to others who are supposedly their family members in Christ.
If you cannot repent and get relationships right in the Kingdom now, I cannot use you to forge new relationships in the future in My Kingdom. If you have bitterness, anger and jealousy in your heart, it will manifest with shaming and name-calling, as well as condescending and destroying another's capability to serve me well.
The days of selfish ambition and immaturity are closely coming to an end. My light, My life, My word and My ways are perfect! 
I will not deviate from My plan for the Kingdom of God in the earth. I am looking for a people who will not listen to the accusation of others nor slander and destroy their brother and sisters because of another's opinion, or perhaps because they themselves were brought a loving correction or warning and instead, turned around and shamed the messenger.
I see you all and I am fully aware of the things that have been done in My name to hide behind selfish ambition. A judgment time is coming! 
Know this. I am about to expose those who abuse the gifts, abuse their titles and abuse the finances that I have deemed for the kingdom and I'm going to bring their names to the forefront to save their souls!
Yes, the whirlwinds may blow, and the storms and winds will be continuing to cycle and swirl. But I'm looking for those who are willing to stay in the center of My Eye, where there is quiet and there is calm and there is discernment, direction and wisdom for these devastating days.
To those in the center of My Eye, I will pour out a wisdom beyond mankind's understanding and they will rise up and have the words that will bring direction, correction, and light into dark places.
The eyes of the Lord keep watch over knowledge, But he overthrows the words of the traitor. -Proverbs 22:12
"For a man's ways are before the eyes of the Lord, and he ponders all his paths." -Proverbs 5:21
Stand prepared, for I'm doing this thing regardless of whether man is ready or not.
I am that I Am and I will have my way in the earth, says the Lord of Hosts.
For this is what the high and exalted One says-- He who lives forever, whose name is holy: "I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.” -Isaiah 57:15

Monday May 16, 2022


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

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.

 Prophetic Insights From the Holy Spirit
through Mary Lindow
 
Do you not say, 'Four months more and then the harvest'?
I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields!
They are ripe for harvest.  - John 4:35
 
 
PLANT YOUR FEET AND DETERMINE NOT TO LOOK BACKWARD.
The enemy will assault you to press you backwards.
Have I not said, "without a prophetic vision the people perish and go backwards?” 
I am ready to revisit areas that have advanced my purposes but retreated at the day of battle. 
 
THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE SHAKING OF GOVERNMENTS. 
There must be a confrontation of governments. My government on earth is arising and causing entire regions to shake. I am restoring and rising up leaders. 
 
IN THE PAST SEASON, MY GIFT WITHIN LEADERS COULD NOT FIND ITS PLACE IN MY GOVERNMENT. However, now I am causing governments and gifts to divinely “find one another" and to connect.
 
This is creating great shakings from region to region throughout this land.
This alignment is creating a shift in civil government.
 
TODAY IS A DAY OF BREAKING OFF THAT WHICH CAUSED MY LEADERS TO RETREAT FROM THE VISITATIONS OF THE PAST. 
Many advanced and then quit and retreated! 
 
NOW IS A TIME TO ADVANCE! 
I am restoring many of you to lead this advance. 
There will be great connections occurring in My Body in this advance. 
This will be the beginning of confronting sorceries, astrology, and witchcraft, which have produced control. I am sending you forward and I am releasing supernatural wisdom. This wisdom will cast down the sorcerers, astrologers, and those practicing witchcraft throughout regions. 
 
LOVE AND CONFIDENCE IS ARISING IN MY BODY. 
The past three years have been a time of restoring a level of worship, humility, meekness and purity in your calling and boldness in the choices you make! 
 
FROM WORSHIP YOU WILL NOW MOVE INTO A NEW SUPERNATURAL DIMENSION. 
Do not fear this call to the supernatural!
The Baal systems of this nation will begin to strengthen to keep my new refreshing strategies from forming and advancing in your region.
Do not fear these systems, but keep confronting through prayer, the powers that have attached themselves to the structures of governments in your region. 
 
I WILL MAKE YOU INTO A SUPERNATURAL PEOPLE
WHO CAN RISE UP AND OVERTHROW
THAT WHICH HAS CONTROLLED YOU IN THE PAST.
 
MY PEOPLE ARE BECOMING A NEW, SHARP THRESHING INSTRUMENT.
This threshing is producing shaking.
This shaking is releasing harvest.
The harvest will not rot in the fields of neglect or laziness. 
 
THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A POWERFUL CONSUMING FIRE. 
When these occult structures are overthrown, consuming fire will sweep through this nation. And you will set my name upon the high places!
My all-consuming light will address the idols and temples of religious shame and control. 
 
I HAVE GIVEN SO MANY WHO CALL THEMSELVES “MY ANOINTED” MUCH, MUCH, TIME TO DEAL WITH THE HIDDEN SINS.
Sins in their marriages.
Sins of competition, jealousy over who is used by me, and harsh verbal words of shame used to control and break the will of another servant in my calling.
Some have called themselves my servants but have only served their own purposes in a place of self-comfort and self-promotion, letting others do the labor in prayer.
 
 Jeremiah 7:24 says,
“But they did not listen or pay attention;
instead, they followed the stubborn inclinations of their evil hearts. 
THEY WENT BACKWARD AND NOT FORWARD.” 
 
 
DEAL WITH YOUR WEAK AND COWARDLY ATTEMPTS AT HOLINESS, THROUGH REPENTANCE AND HONESTY OF HEART BEFORE ME AND OTHERS WHOM YOU HAVE BEEN WALKING IN FELLOWSHIP WITH.
THE DAYS OF PERSONAL AMBITION AND HIERARCHY ARE NUMBERED.
 
 
MY FIRE MUST BE IN YOUR HEART!
The fear of the Divine Supernatural is to be removed from you.
Many have fallen into fear over the supernatural spirits that have surrounded them. Therefore, they have retreated in their prayer life and fallen into passivity.
 
 1 Samuel 12:24 says,
“But be sure to honor the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things He has done for you 
 
THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A NEW DAY! PLANT YOUR FEET.
The window of opportunity for change is short and sweet.
 
THIS WILL BE A TIME THAT NIGHT WATCHES ARE RE-FORMED IN YOUR REGION, AND I WILL REVISIT YOU IN THE NIGHT WATCH.
I will visit my bride as I described in the Song of Solomon and knock upon her door. This is not a time for hesitation.
Night watches will spring forth across the nations.
Once again these watches will open the door to me, and I will come again.
 
Therefore, I am calling watchmen to rise up and cry out day and night
for my bride to be positioned near the door of opportunity in these lands.
Be positioned, ready to open the door of opportunity in your nation.
 
MY BRIDE MUST NOT HESITATE TO OPEN THE DOOR
SINCE HARVEST IS WAITING TO COME THROUGH THE DOOR
INTO THE STOREHOUSE OF MY KINGDOM!
 
MY WILL HAS BEEN ACTIVATED ON EARTH.
I AM ADVANCING.
ADVANCE WITH ME.
I WILL LEAD YOU INTO WARFARE.
 
MANY HAVE GROWN FEARFUL OF CONFRONTING THE ENEMY.
I CAME TO DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE ENEMY.
I confronted both legalism and liberalism.
I say rise up in worship that you might confront.
Without confrontation, your enemy, the legalist, will gain much strength against you and narrow the boundaries of your freedom.
If you will align yourselves properly and allow your gift to work within my government, I will guide you like a troop into warfare and make you victorious. 
 
WORSHIP IS ARISING. FROM WORSHIP, YOU WILL WAR!
For a sound of war is coming into the heart of my people.
 
John 4:23 says, 
A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality), for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers 
 
DO NOT GO BACKWARDS. 
Take off the old garments that would hinder you.
My advance is now in the earth.
YOU HAVE BEEN BLINDED FROM THE SUPPLY OF THE FUTURE!
 
A NEW SEER ANOINTING IS ABOUT TO ARISE IN MY PEOPLE.
What you couldn't see in the past, you will now see.
You've tried to connect and align with some, but now I will release a new anointing for connecting.
You will see strategies of supply that have been hidden from you by occult powers. 
 
The seer anointing is coming back into your region.
My people's eyes are about to see their supply.
Advance is now in the earth.
Open your eyes and advance with me! 
 
YOU WILL KNOW ME AS THE GREAT PROVIDER.
YOU WILL KNOW ME AS THE GREAT HEALER.
YOU WILL SEE ME BRING FULFILLMENTS
AND ANSWERS TO MY MANY PROMISES!
 
YES! 
You will now begin to release a manifestation of My joy of release from captivity from region to region throughout the land and in all nations crying out for more of Me! 
 
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. 
There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, 
For the old order of things has passed away."  - Revelation 21:4
 
Let’s pray about this word from the Lord and share it with others!

Wednesday Dec 15, 2021


 By Mary Lindow Through The Holy Spirit
 
TODAY’S PODCAST IS GOING TO BE AN INTERESTING ONE!
What I’m sharing on this specific podcast is about a vision that I had when my husband and I were first engaged. I was staying in his parent’s home and my husband had his own house about 10 miles away. We spent a lot of time talking together and praying and just contemplating what our future would look like in the Lord, and how he was going to use us, when Steve would come over to spend time with me after work.
One evening I had gone into the living room of my in-laws to play the piano and worship and sing to the Lord, and while I was worshiping Him and enjoying being in His presence, I had what would be described as a screen being dropped out in front of my eyes take place, and I had a very visual picture to watch or as the Bible would call it, a vision.
I SAW MYSELF RUNNING ACROSS SOME SEMI-ROCKY LAND and Steve was behind me. He was trying to direct a group of individuals to stay in line and be in unity together.
All of us had what looked to be like a stretchy headband wrapped around our heads and across our foreheads. Attached on the front of these were round lights like miner’s lamps. Some of lights on the people in the line where Steve was trying to get them to come into unity and walk together would flicker and not come on brightly. Others were very bright and consistently steady.
I was running ahead like a scout and the word “forerunner” came into my mind as I was running ahead. I turned around and looked at what Steve was doing and he was trying to stop these individuals from elbowing each other and fighting over whose theology was the most correct.
 
ABOVE THE HEADS OF THESE INDIVIDUALS I NOTED THAT THERE WERE DENOMINATIONAL CHURCH ORGANIZATIONAL NAMES AND ALSO NONDENOMINATIONAL TITLES.
I turned back around and continued my scouting and forerunning and was jogging at a relaxed pace, but I knew I was heading towards something in front of me that I needed to get to.
The path had embedded rocks and bumps that I had to avoid so I wouldn’t trip. The lamp or miner’s light strapped to my forehead kept a bright light steadily beaming in front of me.
Suddenly, in front of me, was a large chasm or a gap and I had to stop and pull back so I wouldn’t fall headlong into the huge gap.
There was no possible human way to run and jump over it and I was at a dead stop staring over the edge. Intuitively, I knew I needed to get to the other side and that there was something very important for me to engage in and be a part of.
But! I didn’t see a ladder or a bridge long enough or safe enough in any direction, to try to cross over with.
 
I Heard A Voice In The Vision Tell Me To Take A Step Of Faith, and that as I walked forward, not in my own strength, not in my own might or power, but in the spirit, that I would make it safely to the other side.
I remember feeling hesitant and thinking I needed to warn Steve.
I turned around and told him I’m going to take a leap of faith to get to the other side. He looked at me and seem to understand what I was doing and turned around and tried to tell the other individuals that they were going to have to lean upon God‘s power and might and supernatural ability, to get them all to the other side. I once again turned around and backed up and took a running leap across this wide chasm. I was immediately on the other side and waited for Steve.
 
I REALIZED THAT I HAD TO DO THIS ON MY OWN WITH THE LORD, and not depend upon Steve to get me to where the Lord wanted me to be. Nor could I get him there. We were each responsible to trust in the Lord with all of our heart.
It was as if I was lifted back over the chasm for a moment so I could observe what was taking place with Steve and the others.
Several of the individuals who were irritated that others were not listening to their great rhetoric and interpretation of things, began to break loose and run forward while telling everyone how they were going to make it across the gap/chasm. Several of them literally walked off the edge of the cliff into the chasm due to not paying attention, and fell completely to the bottom.
 
OTHERS WERE FIGHTING AND SEVERAL WERE IN FEAR AND WOULD NOT ATTEMPT A LEAP OF FAITH.
They wanted to build a structure or devise a plan to get them there. Their lights were flickering very low by this point.
Steve finally said, “I have to go”, and he too, took a running leap of faith and threw his arms upward, eyes closed, trusting in the Lord’s provision to get him over the chasm. He met me standing on the other side of this wide gap.
 
IMMEDIATELY WE BECAME MEMBERS OF A LARGE ARMY.
Everyone was dressed in a white robe and had different colors of sashes to indicate which battalion or team of army members they were marching with.
Everyone’s headband with the lamp on the front of it was brilliantly white and the lamps were shining intensely! Everyone was in order and marching in unison, with thousands of members.
 
OVERHEAD THERE WAS SOMETHING LIKE ARTILLERY FIRE TAKING PLACE IN THE SKY. 
It seemed as if there were missiles and different kinds of weaponry clashing above us, but we were all marching calmly and firmly in unity and we knew we were marching under the direction of our Leader, King, Jesus Christ.
 
Shortly after this surprising vision I “came to myself” again and sat there and pondered what I had seen, for a very long time.
Steve and I have often talked about this and have often shared the details with each other again as we l pray and ask the Lord why he would show it to us at that time, and what we were being prepared for.
 
CHRISTIAN ALLEGIANCES ARE  “STRANGE AND STRAINED AFFAIRS”
Many denominations and non-denominational groups as well as progressive and New Age influenced churches have chosen to embrace a corporate world structure and more eagerly, “hunker down” into a “murky version” of the word of God.
Many have embraced the cultural pressure to push away pure living, and interpret the word of God to fit the current day embracing of immoral sexuality and freethinking on many levels.
 
THE CURRENT BLATHERING INTELLECTUALS OF THE ERA mock and criticize those who choose to live a morally and biblically pure and truthful application of God’s word.
You know, It just not "cool or hip" right now to not be a little edgy and nasty!
 
I believe that in the vision that I had, those who were elbowing and arguing and posturing while on their way to what they felt was an event (that would be in fact an important moment in the collective body of Christ), these individuals had “dimmed” their approach to allowing their minds to be renewed and cleansed by the word of God. I believe the headbands that weakly flickered with the mining lights were symbols of what they fed their minds with, weakening their discernment.
 
THOSE WHO WERE FOCUSED ON HAVING THEIR MINDS RENEWED by the word of God, being illuminated by his word and having their minds renewed had no wavering or angst taking place.
Those that were fighting and pontificating the most, had the dimming lamps that flickered and seemed to short out, and they insisted that adaptations and adjustments could be made according to the way that they interpreted faith and how to walk with Christ.
THEY REFUSED TO LISTEN TO ANYONE ELSE AND THEY REFUSED TO HAVE ANY KIND OF UNITY, BUT NEEDED TO PUSH FORWARD TO PROVE THEIR POINT.
 
When Steve kept telling them in the vision that they had to be unified and that they had to be humble and to humbly care for one another as brothers in the Lord, they became all the more enraged, condescending, and began to rush ahead in arrogance and with great irritability.
 
ONE INDIVIDUAL WAS WALKING BACKWARDS lecturing everyone and literally fell over the cliff edge into the chasm, screaming all the way down.
 
SO WHERE ARE WE?
Anyone who is doing all they know to do to have a close walk with the Lord right now at this time, who desires to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to the churches and us individually, is fully aware of the deceptive clouds of wickedness and filth hovering over the world.
 
LYING HAS BECOME AN HONORED AND CUNNING ATTRIBUTE in order to confuse, control, and break other human beings.
Sadly, many in the faith have chosen to become rabid political activists to the point that it’s all that they devour and think about day and night.
They shun anyone who will not listen to them and certainly have embraced on many levels, the message of a “one world unified socialist lifestyle”. This is where a great delusion has been allowed to deceive many. Second Thessalonians 2:11 warned us about this!
“Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false.”
 
THERE IS GOING TO BE A LOT OF GODLESSNESS IN THE LAST DAYS
In 2 Timothy 3:1-5 we have quite the strong warning about how it was going to roll out and unfold. (I think that we are already there.)
“So! Understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 
For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, but treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but they deny its power. Avoid such people.”
 
WOW! AVOID THESE PEOPLE?
These are strong and difficult words to hear aren’t they?
 
When I was forerunning ahead in the vision, I believe it was a indicator of a prophetic forerunner seeing the things to come as well as seeing what God was asking of his people, as the world became more corrupt and dark, and decisions that were difficult that were coming, were about to be made.
 
THE ENTIRE TIME I WAS RUNNING I WAS WATCHING AND LOOKING TO MAKE SURE THAT MY FEET WOULD NOT TRIP, and when I came to the edge of the chasm I knew that I had to completely abandon myself, to everything that I could possibly fashion or create in my mind, leaving behind the hopeful use of any personal skills to get to the other side of where God wanted me to be.
 
THERE WAS NO POSSIBILITY TO RUN AND JUMP AND MAKE IT ON MY OWN.
I had to abandon myself to the fact that God said to take a leap of faith. That I must trust Him spirit, soul, and body, to be moved into position in His kingdom where I would be in unity marching with His great army of servants.
Somehow in my spirit, in the vision, I knew that Steve was going to be okay and also knew that we had to individually make a choice to trust God completely with our lives, no matter what difficulties we were about to face.
There was great sadness on Steve’s face when he turned around and knew he had to now leave those who were rushing ahead and jumping or still arguing on the edge of the chasm, and that it was his time to risk everything and take a step of faith out into the unknown.
The minute Steve arrived on the other side of the chasm with me we were side-by-side marching to the sound of thousands of feet in unison and voices praising God. There was a look of determination and sobriety on every face that was in every battalion of people, but everyone knew why they were there, and what they were being assigned to.
The flashes of light and military type of war going on above us was constant but no one broke rank and everyone was marching in the battalion that they were a part of. Praise and powerful prayers were coming out of all of all of the people’s mouths as they raised their hands forward in honor of what was up ahead, which I believe was King Jesus himself.
 
In Joel 2:11 it says
“The Lord utters his voice before his army,
For his camp is exceedingly great;
He who executes his word is powerful.
For the day of the Lord is great and very awesome;
Who can endure it?”
 
NOW, I WILL NOT PRESUME TO TRY TO UNPACK ALL THAT IS GOING ON IN THE EARTH TODAY, nor will I say that I understand all of the applications of the book of Revelation or End Time thoughts.
What I will say is that the Lord has told us that the difficult days would come and that antichrists and deceivers would rise up from among us, even trying to deceive the very elect, God’s own precious, set apart children.
 
1 John 4:3 tells this clearly!
Every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God.
This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.
 
You see, This is a time where God is already showing those who have ears to hear what He is saying and that we are being called to take great steps and leaps of trust and faith in Him, like we have never, EVER done before.
 
IT’S SCARY OUT THERE IN THE WORLD, and tyrants and wicked men and women defy and mock anything that interferes with their corruption and filth. They are absolutely not interested in the sound of the voice of the Lord or in his people challenging them. But this is where our faith and trust in God must exceed and excel.
 
It is a time where you and I must continually and constantly renew our minds by intentionally reading and listening to the word of God.
 
HOW MANY TIMES A DAY DO PEOPLE CHECK THE SOCIAL MEDIA UPDATES and news feeds on their phones and I Pads? Is this where the light of Christ is found and minds are renewed?
No. It’s a place where distractions and debates and the opinions of man drown out truth and any trust in God.
 
RUN AWAY FROM THE PACK
Believers! Get a firm pace going in your pursuit of the truth!
Be aware of those snares and rocks placed there to intentionally get you to change course or quit and become part of the world’s narratives!
 
There’s no need to figure out what you are going to do
in tough times if you stay close to the word and voice of God!
 
He absolutely WILL guide you, and His word IS the lamp for your feet and the light that will keep your path lit up as you journey through dark days!
 
Psalm 119:105 
"Your word is a lamp to my feet
, AND a light to my path.
 
IN CLOSING, I ENCOURAGE YOU TO ALLOW THE LORD, TO DO A DEEP PURGING AND SEARCHING OF YOUR HEART.
Don’t push away where he is trying to get you to give up your own, personal opinions about how things are to be done in a time where recklessness and chaos are rewarded.
Get quiet and be still in his presence, and ask him to tell you exactly what to do.
 
HE WILL DIRECT YOU THROUGH HIS WORD!
He will bring people across your path who are either like-minded or who will point the way to absolute sustaining truth.
Stay away from those who are so full of themselves, and who love the sound of their own voices, so that there is no room for tenderness and dialogue for a soul that is hungering after God.
 
YOU AND I ARE RIGHT NOW, A PART OF THE GREAT ARMY OF GOD.
We are to march to the sound of His voice and have our voices raised in praise of who He is and in declaration that we are of another Kingdom.
Even if it seems as if nothing is changing or that God is at a distance, we are not to walk by how we feel, or how things look around us.
We are to be determined to be in union and in communication by the spirit with the Spirit of the living God.
 
Ask the Lord to draw you close to him.
Choose to run after him!
 
Don’t wait for others to lead you or guide you to answer the questions that you have in your heart right now. Jesus by the Holy Spirit is able to speak clearly to you and he is able to give you direction, because, He IS the great I AM.
He IS wisdom.
He IS light!
And, He has promised…
…To never leave us in the dark.
 
Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness,
But will have the light of life.” - John 8:12

I KNOW SUFFERING IS EXHAUSTING AND PAIN HURTS! That is why it is called pain and suffering. If there were an escape a person of great wisdom and insight would have done it already!
By Mary Lindow
SUFFERING AND SORROW ARE A PART OF LIFE
Knowing this, however, doesn’t make it any easier to cope when you find yourself in the midst of the deepest, darkest trials of faith, and mentally anguish and strain.
Don’t you wish Christianity could make you exempt from suffering? That would be great, but as most of us have learned, following our faith doesn’t give us a free ride.
We catch as much trouble as unbelievers—often more.
The difference, of course, is that we can turn to Jesus when things go wrong. Unbelievers might argue that we’re only turning to our imagination, but we know better.
At some time in your life, however, suffering will hit you so hard that you won’t be able to do any of those things, and that dark time will probably visit you more than once.
“Even in darkness, light dawns for the upright,
for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man.”
Psalm 112:4
 
WE ALL WANT THINGS WE DON’T GET.
Maybe it’s a person you’re sure would make a perfect spouse, and the relationship crumbles apart. Maybe it’s a better job or promotion, and you don’t make the cut. Or it might be a goal you poured your time and energy into, and it doesn’t come to pass or others sabotage it all.All of us have prayed for the recovery of loved ones who were ill, but they died anyway.
It takes real spiritual maturity to stay faithful when things go wrong, but severing our relationship with God punishes us, not him. It’s self-destructive behavior that can put us on the path to a miserable life. The parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32) teaches us that God always wants us to come back to him.
Whether your problem is discouragement, illness or aging, sometimes all you have left is Jesus.
When you’re angry and bitter, you can still cling to Jesus in the midst of your tears. You can grab onto him and refuse to let go until he brings you through it. You’ll find, to your surprise that he holds on to you even tighter than you hold on to him.
 
JESUS UNDERSTANDS SORROW
He knows about being hurt. He remembers the terrible moment on the cross when his Father was forced to abandon him, because he was filthy from taking on our sins. Jesus won’t let you go.
And as you age and start down the path from this life to the next, Jesus will take your hand to guide you. He appreciates all that you have done for him through the years, but what he has always wanted most is your love.
So there you are in the middle of one of life’s train-wrecks-dazed, wounded, wondering what shoe-or bomb-will be dropping next, and up walks Job’s comforters.
We all remember Job from the Bible. A rich, powerful man, a great father and good in every way was Job.
Then, in a series of overlapping upheavals, he lost everything and everybody except his wife-who turned out to be a whole lot less than sympathetic in her changed status.
Battered Job ends up sitting alone on a pile of dirt, scratching his boil-covered body with some broken pottery.
 
WE CAN IDENTIFY WITH POOR JOB.
Life drags us through some tough times of loss that make us feel every bit like Job. Caught in a vortex of pain, and wondering if we’ll ever make it to safety.
And, boy, do we recognize Job’s so-called friends who showed up to by all accounts offer support and comfort. As they sat with Job in his misery, they took turns playing a self-centered, self-righteous, can-you-top-this game of knowing for certain that every bit of Job ‘s disaster had to be his own fault or a lack of trust in God. They weren’t sure how or why because Job seemed so decent, but deep down, they insisted, he just couldn’t be all he pretended to be.
 
THIS IS FAMILIAR TERRITORY
You get fired, and friends smirk knowingly when you try to explain the political nature of the event. Your child gets into difficulty-well; you know the kind of comfort you’ll get from friends about that. (It probably started sometime during potty training.)
Yet others try to “help” you with what I call “prayer lecturing.” While praying “for and with you” they let you (and God) know just how lucky you should be to even have running water, had a meal that day and more! Not really comforting in any way, and very very short on compassion.
Yet, from the story, it’s clear that Job was completely innocent.
Dreadful things do happen to completely innocent people, good people.Because of their opinion of Job’s guilt, history has bestowed his friends- (and their current replicas) – the label, “Job’s comforters.”So-called friends who add to a suffering person’s anguish by piling on false charges of blame and guilt and harsh reprimand for daring to show sadness or agony.
You may never have met anybody like Job, but you’ve met his comforters on more than one occasion. They seem to be everywhere.
 
WE CAN CHARGE SOME OF IT OFF TO JEALOUSY
Job had everything a person could dream of wanting-and then some-so jealousy was never more than a stone’s throw away. The green-eyed monster is a little more subtle with people living everyday, typical lives, but jealousy doesn’t need much ground to take root and grow with vigor.
 
WE DON’T WANT TO ADMIT BAD THINGS MAY HAPPEN TO US!
If bad things happen to people who don’t deserve them, they could happen to anybody, including me. If I don’t want bad things to happen to me, (who does?), I have to persuade myself and everybody around me that the victim’s actions caused the problem. If blame can be assigned, then I’ll be safe as long as I’m good.
In other words, if I can claim that the cause of your problem is something you do that I don’t do, then what happened to you can’t happen to me. There is, of course, no logic to this, but it brings some shaky comfort to frightened hearts.We see this thinking at work when people stare numbly at adversity and ask, “What did I do to deserve this?” Sometimes the answer is, “nothing.”
 
HAVE YOU EVER ASKED YOURSELF "WHY ME?"
And it doesn’t have to be bad; you could be excited from something wonderful. Most often then not, I ask myself this after something I am looking forward to goes wrong.
Even at times when something goes wrong I lay awake at night and my thoughts wonder to what previously occurred. I am sure everyone does it at times, wishing for another try or chance.
You may lay awake thinking about your suffering, part of life’s suffering is misery’s shadow persisting/hanging on; not only do you suffer but you have to think about suffering.
I can’t prove this with statistics or find it any book I know of, yet I would say that more people either come to the faith or fall away because of this reason above all; the disturbance of suffering.
YOU SEE GOD USES TIMES OF SUFFERING…
...TO TEACH AND GROW US.
If you allow yourself to recount your sufferings, did you not learn more about faith while suffering then any other time? It has been said that; “Blessings are God’s whispers, he speaks in our conscience, but shouts to us in our suffering.”
“O my Comforter in sorrow,
My heart is faint within me.”
Jeremiah 8:18
Suffering becomes the only way to realize our hollow spiritual self. Pain is unmasked, and every person knows when something is not right when they are hurting. Pain insists upon being attended to.
So when you travel down this line of thought you come to the idea, why do I or someone else suffer when others don’t?
 
I KNOW SUFFERING IS EXHAUSTING AND PAIN HURTS
That is why it is called pain and suffering. If there were an escape a person of great wisdom and insight would have done it already. Yet Discipleship demands such trials to compel us towards renewal.
Read Hebrews 2:10
“God, for whom and through whom everything was made,
chose to bring many children into glory.
And it was only right that he should make Jesus, through his suffering,
a perfect leader, fit to bring them into their salvation.”
The real question is what to do when life has just punched us a good one, and Job’s comforters show up at our door.
Nobody says we have to let them in.
And certainly nobody says we have to entertain them.
And, most positively, nobody says we have to believe them.
“For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives,
So also through Christ our comfort overflows.”2 Corinthians 1:5
We can sort out the who’s-to-blame-for-what after we get some solid ground under our feet and a little energy back into our lives.
But we still won’t want Job’s comforters anywhere around us…
...We will want people who care.
"Compassion"
To me not to be kind is evil of the mind.
No need to pray or preach,
Let us our children teach with every fond caress,
Pity and gentleness:
So in the end may we God’s Kingdom cause to be.

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

God tells you and I at this time to put HIM
between yourself and the enemies!
 
 
By Mary Lindow  - Through The Holy Spirit
 
The Father in heaven has an exclusive responsibility towards His people and He cries out to them through the Holy Spirit,  that just as he moved on behalf of Asa and his men when surrounded by a vast army and 300 chariots, so will He move again on behalf of those who are obedient to His voice and commands.
 
He tells you and I at this time
to put HIM between yourself and the enemy.
 
When Asa realized his lack of strength, THEN he saw Jehovah God crush the Cushites.
They were “Crushed before the Lord and their foes.”
-2 Chronicles 14:13
 
Then Asa called to the LORD his God and said,
"LORD, there is no one besides You to help in the battle between the powerful and those who have no strength; so help us, O LORD our God, for we trust in You, and in Your name have come against this multitude.
O LORD, You are our God; let not man prevail against You! "
-2 Chronicles 14:11 
  
THE “BUGLE” TO BE “FRUGAL” 
There will be several “invented” crisis settings in the next months that will cause many to choose to hoard and stockpile for themselves. They will be quickly exposed as moneymaking schemes and a tool to inflate prices.
On the other side of this there will be those who have very little with which to live and eat due to job losses and cutbacks.
Those around them, if not filled with the fruits of Grace and Mercy, will become indifferent to the cry of their needs, for there will be many. 
 
“Share your food with the hungry and give shelter to the homeless.
Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help.” -Isaiah 58:7 
 
The Lord would have me share that He is indeed watching to see if the heart of the Apostolic move of God can again be modeled as when the people brought what they had to trusted and integral teams of leaders, (Like In the Book Of Acts, it was Peter) who then distributed with prayer and wisdom to all, and none had any lack.
We are at a time where the Body of Christ must share resources willingly, and fairly and we are not to justify personal restraints that we think should apply to others, but not to ourselves. The hoarding of resources is a clear indicator of greed.
 
HERE IS A SCRIPTURAL MEASURING STICK OR PLUMBLINE
TO USE TO OBSERVE THE TRUE APOSTOLIC HEART AND LEADER. 
 
They share freely and give generously to those in need.
Their good deeds will be remembered forever.
They will have influence and honor. 
Psalm 112:9
 
Before I move into Delivering  the Prophetic Words and Insights that the Lord has impressed me with for the  United Kingdom - Ireland – France Germany and  Canada
I would like to share the brief but potent following thoughts and soul stirring words came from Reverend Linda Brown in Perth, Australia while she was   partaking in a Kingdom Community Zoom Session. They resonate with truth and prophetic depth.
 
“Revelation or Decimation?”
Will we operate from The Spirit of Revelation in the coming days to ensure the Kingdom of God is able to operate fully as God intends in the years that lie ahead?
Or will we see the church grow weaker because of our lack of foresight and action?
This is a challenge for us all as Apostolic/Prophetic people.
 
Meaning of decimation :
 -a drastic reduction in the strength or effectiveness of something."
I honor those insights and believe they are words for the Holy Spirit to leaders at this time.
 
PROPHETIC WORDS FOR
THE UNITED KINGDOM - IRELAND – FRANCE – GERMANY – CANADA
 
“Then I was told, You are to make a fresh prophecy
concerning many peoples and races and nations,
And languages and kings.”
-Revelation 10:11
 
The United Kingdom: 
There will be a ROAR of Prayer heard from desperate hearts in the UK.
Prayer will be a way of life in many small Hamlets and Villages, and many homes will become chapels of healing and miracles. The prostitution red light districts in Central London will have an epic move of God as He sends in intercessors in tandem with relevant and fiery Revivalists who will have such a strong presence of God, with the Power of Holy Spirit bringing conviction, that even the hardest atheist observing it all will be made to run away in terror at the potent power of God falling upon the filth of prostitution.
 
“And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten--the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, my great army, which I sent among you.- Joel 2:25 
 
Houses of hope and care will spring up in smaller surrounding areas, where these whom have once been bound will be cared for and restored. 
 
BRETHREN, IF any person is overtaken in misconduct or sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right and restore and reinstate him, without any sense of superiority and with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also. - Galatians 6:1
 
 Ireland: 
There are many hidden and faithful leaders who have weathered political and spiritual storms for decades who are now well prepared and ready for the Father’s divine plan for their lives.
Ireland will begin to export teams of Apostolic and Prophetic missionaries into the USA and Europe. These people will have a razor-sharp ability to cast out religious spirits hindering moves of God. They will bring with them the fresh songs of praise and worship now ready for the hungry ears of the true worshiper.
 The “cynical” Irishman will now become the grand believer declaring – “With God all things are possible”! There will be a spotlight on Ireland with new technologies being developed and mined there. With it, doors will open for many to travel to Ireland and find Fathering and Mothering Mentors ready to restore, train, and release. 
 
France and Germany: 
The Father calls France, “A nation now in chaos”. 
But, as an underground stream flows swiftly and quietly, so do those who have determined to pray and intercede with heart wrenching pleas for the Father to move within their land.
A spiritual passivity will begin to be addressed and shaken off of the hearts of fearful and hidden believers in France and Germany.
There will begin to be a few strong and ethical governmental leaders rise up who will begin to risk addressing the rapidly encroaching militant attacks against the people of France and its outlying regions. There will be community of vigils of prayer in local churches and the repenting of passiveness and elitist thinking. 
 
German and French Believers will begin to view one another in a Kingdom perspective and join in prayer and service to one another, creating a groundswell of food pantries with farmers and dairies that will create
CO-OPs. 
 
The key to breaking the spiritual stagnation in France says the Lord, will be the humbling of hearts before the Throne of God and reaching out beyond its own borders. 
 
“For He is [Himself] our peace (our bond of unity and harmony).
He has made us both] one body), and has broken down (destroyed, abolished) the hostile dividing wall between us. - Ephesians 2: 14
 
Germany:
Germany will have a large revolt and uprising from among the youth as the economy continues to stress and bend. Looting and stealing and selling of automobiles will become a raging epidemic. 
For when the world with all its earthly wisdom failed to perceive and recognize and know God by means of its own philosophy, God in His wisdom was pleased through the foolishness of preaching [salvation, brought on by Christ and to be had through Him], to save those who believed (who clung to and trusted in and relied on Him). -1 Corinthians 1:21 
Simultaneously, Young street evangelists who have been well trained as well as educated will be commissioned to reach out to those rioting and manifesting.
Government leaders will not know what to do with the uproar, and sanctions against open religious expressions will be put in place.
Nevertheless, young Paul’s and Silas’s will not fear what man can do to them and will continue to flow in the power of Evangelism, seeing the hand of God spare the lives of many. 
 
“Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and preach and cry out to it the preaching that I tell you.” -Jonah 3:2
 
The Lord is going to give Words of Wisdom and Words of Knowledge and messages to the young men and women of God who are going to rise up and speak in Germany!
They will be full of the Power of the Holy Spirit, and they will cause the wave of the move of God to move across many villages and there will be an uprising of broken hearts, crying out for help, and there will be literal street revivals and manifestations of the Holy Spirit. It will NOT be stopped!  
 
CANADA: 
Canada will experience one of its most prosperous seasons ever known, for a short season.
The Lord would have Canada know that they must deal fairly with the wealth that they will produce and pay back the First Native families, and with Godly equity. If this is not addressed with wisdom and integrity, Canada will have to pass through the sorrows of disobedience.
Canadian Intercessors are being awakened and called up to stand in the place of prayer for its leaders and tribes.
Now is the time for soberness, It is not the time for silliness and laughter. 
It is a sober day, with a command for sober prayers. 
"Accordingly then, let us not sleep, as the rest do, but let us keep wide awake (alert, watchful, cautious, and on our guard) and let us be sober (calm, collected, and circumspect)". - 1 Thessalonians 5:6 
“So Get up! Stand UP! Be Purposeful,” says the Lord!
How do you not know that through your borders I can bring a North American Wave of Justice and Restoration?” 
“So brace up your minds; be sober (morally alert), set your hope wholly and unchangeably on the grace (with is the Divine favor) that is coming to you when Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is revealed. -1 Peter 1:13
  
IN CLOSING, I BLESS YOU AS YOU HAVE LISTENED OR HAVE READ THESE PROPHETIC INSIGHTS IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
 
May His word be a lamp to your feet and a light to your path!
 
“Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said,
“No, don’t worship me. I am a servant of God, just like you,
and your brothers and sisters who testify about their faith in Jesus,
 Worship only God." -2 Peter 1:21
 
 “For the essence of prophecy is to give a clear witness for Jesus ”
 -Revelation 19:10
 
I want you to know that we are not to be elevating, or exalting men or women of God because of the revelation or the edification that they are giving to the Body of Christ right now.
YES! We do listen to voices that the Lord puts among us, but we do not worship them, nor do we make them our direct contact for hearing things from the Lord on our own.
 
I ENCOURAGE YOU GET INTO A QUIET PLACE, ALONE WITH THE LORD  AND JUST BE STILL!
HE WILL COMMUNICATE DIVINE THINGS TO YOU, THROUGH HIS SPIRIT.

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

By Mary Lindow
 
"He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To do justly, to love kindness and mercy,
To humble yourself and walk humbly with your God."
-Micah 6:8
 
ALTHOUGH I DO BELIEVE THAT THERE IS A FRESH EXPRESSION OF THE HEART OF THE FATHER STIRRING IN THE EARTH, I also see that there is a lot of "bashing" regularly occurring due to the abuse that others have exhibited in their places of calling, aimed at those who have been true to what the Lord has asked them to do in His name, and this has caused not just a little sorrow.
WE MUST CLEARLY SEE THAT CORRUPTION CAN RAPIDLY OCCUR IN ANY PERSON OR ANY GROUP, ORGANIZED, RELAXED, OR OTHERWISE, when the tendency to think that they have arrived at a new or deeper revelation about something more so than others who perhaps express the Lord's voice differently.
ARROGANCE IS THE ASSUMPTION THAT I, INDIVIDUALLY,
OR SOME GROUP THAT I AM A PART OF, COLLECTIVELY,
IS SOMEHOW SUPERIOR TO SOMEONE ELSE OR
SOME OTHER GROUP OF PEOPLE.
 
AT THE HEART OF ARROGANCE IS SELF-CENTEREDNESS. And self-centeredness is the foundation of human sin. I believe any serious attempt at self-examination by an honest person will reveal that we humans are sinful and flawed beyond measure.
 
MARK TWAIN ONCE SAID, “MAN IS THE ONLY ANIMAL THAT BLUSHES—
OR [FOR THAT MATTER] NEEDS TO.”
 
Paul writes,
“So I find it to be a law that when I want to do what is good, evil lies close at hand…Wretched man that I am! Who will save me from this body of death?”
WE ARE CONSUMED BY SELF. And every time we arrogantly place our own needs before others we are enslaved by sin.
WHAT SHOULD WE DO? HOW SHOULD WE LIVE INSTEAD OF IN THAT ARROGANT MODE? WHAT IS THE ANTIDOTE?
How about the words of Jesus? What did he say?
"Everyone who exalts himself (for example, "Aren't I great? Aren't I right? Don't I always have the best opinion?") will be humbled.
But he who humbles himself (for example, "This is my opinion but it may not be right. I don't have a corner on the market of truth") will be exalted."
 
THE LORD IS NOT SPEEDING UP THE DELIVERY OF ANY "FRESH THING" IN THE EARTH IN ORDER TO GET US TO HIS PURPOSES QUICKLY. No. He is testing the hearts of men and women everywhere, looking for humility, selflessness, and honor, for those who although not perfect, have also served and pointed the way to salvation for many years previously.
THE LORD IS NOT GOING TO HONOR THE INDIVIDUAL WHO SHOUTS THAT "CHANGE IS NEEDED" OR THAT "CHANGE IS COMING" AND THEN SLASHES AND BURNS ANYTHING THAT DOESN'T EMBRACE THEIR VERSION OF IT.
 
THE LORD IS INTERESTED IN THE SOUND OF HUMILITY,
THE HAND OF MERCY,
AND...
...THE VOICE OF GRACE.
These key character issues attract the pure and simple Presence of the Lord. Blessed are the PURE in heart...for they shall see God.
Until the Body of Christ that has been through many difficult and shattering events, rids itself of bitter and venomous words against one another and accepts that each one like sheep have gone astray and turned to what pleased them at the moment, there will be little evidence of much harvest .
THE LOST AND CONFUSED WORLD OUT THERE WATCHES CHRISTIANS TEAR EACH OTHER TO SHREDS DAILY AND WONDERS WHY WE ARE ASKING THEM TO JOIN US! Remember Christ’s two great commandments—love God with all your being, and love your neighbor as yourself.
SELF-CENTEREDNESS IS THE REVERSAL OF THE GREAT COMMANDMENT. Self-centeredness means to place ourselves first, in effect proclaiming our own form of self-government (not needing or wanting the advice or insight of others), therefore our neighbors become an afterthought, and God becomes simply a convenience to be considered only when it’s helpful to us.
It is evident even in our language that self-centeredness is woven into the fabric of the human experience.
 
THE ONE TRUE SACRIFICIAL MODEL TOLD US THAT HE WOULD SEND THE VERY SPIRIT OF GOD IN ORDER TO CONVICT ALL PEOPLE OF SIN, TO COMFORT, TO GUIDE, AND TO SET THEM FREE. Indeed. The very evidence of a redemptive type of life, is in one who washes the feet of his/her brothers and his/her enemies in an act of cleansing the dirt from the road of life off of the pathway to the Truth.
May we truly hear the sound of the unmistakable heartbeat of a redemptive model rising up in clear resounding purity, personal transparency, and in the covering of the multitude of sins by speaking and meditating only on those things that are noble, just, pure, and of a good report.
AS INDIVIDUALS AND AS NATIONS, THE ANTIDOTE TO ARROGANCE AND SELF-CENTEREDNESS IS A HEAVY DOSE OF HUMILITY. That is; a profound willingness to recognize the value and respect the dignity of every human life. And, furthermore, a humble heart calls us to seek and serve Christ in ALL persons by giving of ourselves willingly for the welfare of other people.
THE LORD SAYS,
"Do not let a wise man brag about how wise he is. Do not let a strong man boast about how strong he is. Do not let  a rich person brag about how rich he is.
But here is what the one who brags should boast about. He should brag that he has understanding and knows me. I want him to know that I am the Lord.
No matter what I do on earth, I am always kind, fair and right. And I take delight in that".  -JEREMIAH 9:23-24 (NIV)

By the Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow
 
In one of His most confrontational statements Jesus said, “I have come to bring fire on the earth.”
 
There are times in the Scripture in which fire is a symbol of judgment but in the great majority of references fire is used to point out God’s divine presence. His words make it clear that the meaning behind His words, “I have come to bring fire” refers to something more than a cozy flame to cuddle up to!
 
In this unique statement from Jesus the fire He is speaking of is not literally fire as in flames but a spiritual representation. He is speaking of the burning, exciting, dynamic presence of God in the lives of people. The fire that illuminates His incredible presence, produces unlimited power, burns away the dross and impurities and attracts people to Him. That is the Fire of God.
 
THE FIRE OF GOD IS NOT GIVEN TO MAKE US COZY… 
…But holy, and to stir us up. 
 
When Moses saw the burning bush God first warned him that he was standing on holy ground, and then told him of the great thing He was about to do, to release Israel from the captivity of Pharaoh (Ex 3). When Isaiah was in the temple and it filled with smoke of the burning holiness of God, his awareness of being unclean came first, before God equipped him to be His messenger. When God’s fire comes to the hearts of men and women their spirits are freed from the awful bondage of idolatry. When God’s fire comes, the enemy will be destroyed. That is why we should pray, “O, Lord -send the fire. Your fire. Send your consuming, changing, restoring, victorious fire!”
 
WE SING ABOUT THE FIRE OF GOD IN MANY OF OUR HYMNS. 
There is a song I have known for years that says, 
“Oh, Lord, you’re beautiful. Your face is all I seek.
For when your eyes are on this child, your grace abounds to me.
O Lord, please light the fire, which once burned bright and clear,
Replace the lamp of my first love, that burned with holy fear.”
 
OH, MAY OUR PRAYER BE HEARD!
 
“Lord, send your fire! May we sense and know Your burning, exciting, dynamic presence in our lives and among Your people.”
 
 
“OH HOW YOU FEAR THE FIRE!” - A PROPHETIC WORD
 
“It is as if you think that I might truly do something unloving to burn you or disfigure you!
I am a God of fire! Yes! But a HOLY fire! 
A fire that burns away wood, hay, and dead scraps lying around 
in your heart. They are littering the places that I want to bring My Glory into!
 
When My Fire pursues you it drives away any voice or lust or 
any other enemy of your soul!
You will come to a place where 
you no longer need to have the splash of fanfare or the 
rumblings of the earth to know that I Am in your presence!
 
Instead. 
The Fire brings you to a place just like it did Moses !
He saw My Holy Fire in a bush on a hill. 
I spoke to Him and told Him He was on HOLY ground!
 
"Is not my word like fire," declares the LORD, 

"And like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?”
 Jeremiah 23:29
 
I was a still, small voice, speaking out from inside of a fire!

Listen! 
I am calling out to you!
Be quiet! 
Silence the noise around you! 

Get quiet with Me. 
Put away the busyness that you get caught up into!
 
After the “Fire” a still small voice. 

1Kings19: 12
 
My Passion Fire is calling out to You!
 
I have things I want to whisper into your spirit-man!

I have words that will sustain you through all of the
 fiery trials and tests you will inevitably pass through!
 
“If this is so, 
 Then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials.” 

2 Peter 2:9
 
If you want the Fire of I the Living God to be evident
 in your ministry, whether it is in the marketplace, the home,
or abroad, Listen to My still small voice. 
It will in turn resound like a roaring ocean to those whom 
you will minister to.
 
“O Lord of hosts, 
 How blessed is the man who trusts in You!”

Psalms 84: 12
 
Trust. 
The issue that everyone on earth deals with day in and day out. 

Putting your trust in things that last for only a season or a few years can be very risky and very disappointing.
 
I have told My people to trust in ME with ALL of their heart
 and I will make their paths straight.
Yet - continually they put
 their trust in people, and idols made of gold, positions of power, 
and in themselves and invented doctrines of seasonal passing!
 
Lasting blessings can only come from trusting in Me. 

The real issue is that you don’t really think that I will do
 what I say I will do! 
So... You take it into your own hands! When you finally lay down your need to control those all around you and trust in Me, then you will be blessed! Blessed with safety, peace of mind and above all, 
blessed by My pleasure in your resting in My plan.
 
“See to it that you do not refuse HIM who is speaking!” 

Hebrews 12:25
 
Oh how many times My people have said to Me, 
 “Later Lord! I will do it Later?” 

You exhort others to obey quickly and yet you will drag your
 feet and put Me off until you “feel” like following through!
 
“It is the LORD your God you must follow, 
and him you must revere. 

Keep his commands and obey him; 
serve him and hold fast to him.” 

Deuteronomy 13:4
 
Do not refuse Me when I speak to you when I send you to do
 something in My Name! 
You might fear for your own reputation, 
but a life could be hanging in the balance! 

You do not have the luxury of “denying your King!” 
 
If you wish to be caught up into higher dimensions in My Spirit, 
and, if you long for the “deep that calls unto deep", be faithful 
to ACT when I give you a command!!”
 
Psalm 119:57
 "You are my portion, O LORD; 
 I have promised to obey your words."
Psalm 119:60
 "I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands."
