“DETERMINE NOW TO NOT LOOK BACKWARDS” - Everything Will Be Brought Into The Light - Specific Prophetic Insight

Determine_Now8mxej.jpg

 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!

“2022” - SQUEEZED, STRAIGHTENED AND A NARROWING PATHWAY - Insights and Words From The Holy Spirit

WE THINK THAT WE ARE SO KNOWLEDGEABLE about our own needs and ourselves! But, more often than not, we are just opinionated and headstrong people! 
 
squeezed_Straightened_Narrow9pwd1.jpg

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit

 

WE THINK THAT WE ARE SO KNOWLEDGEABLE about our own needs and ourselves! But, more often than not, we are just opinionated and headstrong people! We refuse instructions from anyone who could tell us about the deeper things of the spirit, because “We know”, or… “Don’t want to know!” 

(How DARE you address this Mrs. Lindow)!!!

Hmmmm!  I think I will continue!! **smile**

 

We stumble along without anyone's help, and all the while we are overlooking that gnawing, “unsettled sense” inside of us, though if we paid attention to this we would see our true inner condition. It is in this way that we acclimate our souls to straggle along in a dark spiritual wilderness, and how we do ourselves so much harm.

 

MANY, MANY OTHER CHRISTIAN SOULS ARE JUST LIKE THIS.

They don't know how to do anything other than let their human senses guide them, and then one day, God intervenes. He arranges things so that one day when you are all alone, there will heave from within your heart a sudden surprising awareness of absolute emptiness. He may also cause you to have a feeling of complete emptiness, but an overwhelming sense of isolation from others, and a lot of loss.

“All of a person's ways seem right in his own opinion, 

But the LORD evaluates the motives.” -Proverbs 21:2

 

You see, there is nothing but a bottomless crater to look down into the deadness of our own souls if we are not fully committed to God. If you ever come to this place you will know how quickly your soul wants to run away and to rush to find something, anything at all, to "fill" itself up again with noise and activity.

Art! Food! Beautiful Clothing! The doing of generous deeds! Perfectionistic exercising and self-improvement to show your “Self” discipline! 

After all... PEOPLE are watching!

The reality of this is, So Is God.

 

VERY FEW SEE THIS BLEAK MOMENT FOR WHAT IT REALLY IS.     

It's a chance to see their need for something that is beyond themselves.

But my friend, this can be a moment where the soul can cross over from its own empty silence into an expected quiet that is alive with His presence.

It silences the anguish, the anxious restlessness into a calm and still place of peace. It's as if the soul finds that in this dark place, there is secret well of sweet water, and it springs up and overflows with light and life. 

Learning to pass into this place of the Spirit and allowing God to keep your soul in refreshing silent tranquility is a true act of the maturing believer.

 

ALL OF YOUR FLESHY SOUL WILL WANT TO RADICALLY FIGHT THIS

and it will do so by trying to analyze what's happening!

All of this kind of behavior will just weigh you down, and it'll pull you back from walking in the spirit, to walking simply in your own understanding. 

The choice we all must make is encapsulated in this statement made by John the Baptist.

“He must increase, but I must decrease.”  -John 3:30

 

Another translation of this verse says it even more plainly.

“He must become more important

while I become less important."

WHEW!

 

HEAVEN CAN BE ENTERED ONLY THROUGH THE NARROW GATE! 

The pathway to hell is broad,

and its gate is wide enough for all the multitudes that choose its easy way.  

But the Gateway to Life is small,

and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it. –Matthew 7:13-14

 

THE WORD “WAY” TRANSLATED FROM THE GREEK WORD HODÓS LITERALLY MEANS “A NATURAL ROAD OR TRAVELED WAY”.  

It refers to a way of life or a way of thinking.

The word is used six times in the book of Acts as a substitute for Christianity itself.   We can quickly understand that the Christian faith is more than a one-time decision to accept Christ. It is a faith, which alters the very course of a life.

 

THE WORD “NARROW” COMES FROM THE GREEK VERB THLÍBO, WHICH MEANS TO PRESS OR CRUSH

AS A WORKER IN A VINEYARD MIGHT CRUSH GRAPES OR A CROWD OF PEOPLE MIGHT PRESS AGAINST ONE ANOTHER. 

This word also means to experience trouble, difficulty, or affliction.

 

COMBINED WITH THE GREEK WORD HODÓS, IT INSINUATES A SQUEEZED, STRAITENED, OR NARROWING PATHWAY.

The cramped condition of the path seems to imply two valuable truths about the nature of the Christian life.

It is a way marked out by the will of God, and it is a way marked by difficulty and struggle.

Remember, when your soul discovers how to let the Holy Spirit bring it into this place of inner peace of learning to rest in this stillness, it’s only because God is carrying you in his arms and that you sense no toil or drive on your part.

Friends, this accomplishes much more than all of your own actions or works of performance, since God Himself, is at work inside of you.

 

“I am confident that the Creator, who has begun such a great work in you, will not stop in mid-design but will keep perfecting you until the day Jesus the Anointed, our Liberating King, returns to redeem the world.” -Philippians 1:6 (The Voice)

 

IF WE FACE “THE NARROWING”, THE CHALLENGE OF ALLOWING OUR SOUL,  OUR FLESH, TO BE FULLY HANDED OVER TO GOD’S PATHWAY,

HE WILL TEACH OUR SOUL HOW TO OVERCOME   

THREE OF THE MOST TOXIC OF SINS.

 

These sins are -  

Anger, Envy, and, an unwillingness to obey the Lord. 

 

These run wild through our stony and hardened hearts

and they eventually can crumble and ruin us.

 

YOU SEE, OUR SOULS DESIRE TO FIND COMPLETE HAPPINESS, BLISS, CONSOLATION AND SECURITY IN THIS WORLD, AND THIS CAN NEVER REALLY HAPPEN!

So, God has to show us our great darkness when our soul tries to find spiritual strength there, because there is no sweet and vibrant life when our soul is attached to the things of this world!  It’s a wide and gregarious path in the world, and the crowds on the pathway adore gratification and pleasure of every sort.

Our souls have a natural demand for wanting our own pleasure and achievement, and frustration causes these sins to grow, and they bring the very ugly fruit that is produced from them right into the light! OUCH!

 

THE LORD ALLOWS HIS TOOL OF DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES TO CRUSH AND TO CRACK OUR HARD SOULS.

He plants His word of light deep into our darkness. And He pours the living water of His spirit on our dryness and then we soften, as he uproots our old sluggish ways and our complaining about obeying God. Meaning, having to pass up our soothing comforts and pleasures.

 

NOW, I URGE YOU TO QUIET THE COMPLAINING OF YOUR SOUL, WITH ITS REBELLIONS.

We will naturally want to turn back to its pleasure and demands!  

But as the world goes further and further into broad deviations of every kind, you as a believer will face a fork in the road.

One of the most cunning temptations of the times that we live in right now for believers is the mindset that says,

I’m not going to get into any trouble! I can handle things as a Christian just fine!

I wont actually “touch the fire” I’ll just play around it!” 

 

WHAT IS THAT FIRE? 

It’s justifying and adapting God’s often narrow and absolute instructions about relationships, marriage, sex, self-indulgence, arrogance, “harmless" Occult involvement and lording over those whom you feel are less astute or affluent as you.

 

GOD WILL AND HE MUST BRING THIS DRYNESS OUT OF OUR SOULS AND KILL THESE DEADLY ROOTS!

Quiet the pathetic demands of your soul for soothing comforts and a right to be angry and judgmental!

When your path seems empty and silent and desert dry, put your soul’s concentration on God alone. You can hardly imagine the harvest of a lasting joy that comes to you, when you learn to be free of your soul’s whining. It's there that God can speak quiet words! 

They will be so sweet and tender, and he will speak of his great love to us.

 

KNOW THIS. DRYNESS WILL TRY TO COME AGAIN AND AGAIN.      

It wants to lead you to self-justification and an easy escape from the hammer and chisel of God shaping your being, turning it into a reservoir for His purposes. 

It will try to come back with greater strength each time you resist. So stand your ground and stand firm in the quietness of your brokenness.  

 

Focus upon His presence guiding you down the narrowing path. 

He will come to you and His fresh guidance will be more amazing than anything your natural mind can imagine.

 

A PROPHETIC WORD FROM THE SPIRIT OF GOD

FOR THOSE FACING “THE NARROWING PATH”

 

“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.

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

UTTERLY HOPELESS UPSIDE DOWN WORLD?

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

 

Utterly_Hopeless_Upside_down7hju1.jpg

Mary Lindow

 

DO YOU FEEL AS IF THINGS ARE UTTERLY HOPELESS

AND COMPLETELY UPSIDE DOWN RIGHT NOW?

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

 

Friend.

You aren’t without hope,

You aren’t hopeless,

But you ARE helpless!

 

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

 

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

 

NOW YOU MAY FEEL HOPELESS, BUT REALLY…

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

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

 

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

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

But He doesn't stop.

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

GOD JUST WILL NOT LET YOU GIVE UP!

During this time you might feel like saying,

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

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

I want out of this prison of hope!"

 

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

YET TO OTHERS THEY DON'T!

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

We feel like we are on a Ferris wheel.

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

 

YOU THINK TO YOURSELF,

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

IN THIS TIME?"

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

 

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

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

 

HE IS DEVELOPING THINGS IN YOU

THAT YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT YOU LACKED.

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

Then you are sure He has made a mistake!

 

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

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

The answer is . . . you don't.

 

SO, RETURN, MY FRIEND, TO YOUR FORTRESS,

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

 

Zechariah 9:12 says,

“Return to your fortress! Yes!

You prisoners who have hope!

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

 

PROPHETIC WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT

 

The Spirit of God says,

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

“Come to me all who are weary and burdened,

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

IT IS A CRAZY WORLD WE LIVE IN AND ITS NOT GOING TO GET EASIER AS CORRUPTION AND WICKEDNESS CONTINUE TO PLAY TOGETHER!

WHAT CAN WE DO?

Arefuge.jpg

By Mary Lindow

 

“Let the wise listen and add to their learning,

And let the discerning get guidance.”

Proverbs 1:5

 

DISTURBING DAYS

It doesn't take a genius mind to know that we are in some terrible times here in the earth! Wars wars and more threats of wars! Economic pressures, ungodly rulers, missiles aimed and ready to blow up other countries, child abductions and murders are on the rise and we have had odd and bizarre weather patterns! And these events all can occur in just one week’s worth of change!

 

I hear the Holy Spirit bringing a clear word of comfort and help to His people who have ears to hear what He is saying to them. Those that are determined to follow the voice of the Good Shepherd and not strange voices.

 

John 10:5

And a stranger will they not follow, 

But will flee from him:

For they know not the voice of strangers.

 

HEARTS OF BROKENNESS

The days have seemingly turned darker, uncertain, and frenzied as media reporters shell out the hyped newscasts of doom and despair. And although much of what is being reported may be actually happening, it is intentionally ratcheted up to keep viewing polls well oiled and operating.

 

All of the noise pollution and the droning voices of the media personalities can weary and weigh down the heart of those who have a compassionate and sensitive spirit or heart.  And. Often through all of the pressure filled “minute by minute live” reporting, people can become restless and fearful, anxiety ridden, and heavy laden with so much hitting them.

 

Proverbs 12:25

Anxiety in a man's heart weighs it down,

But a good word makes it glad.

 

IT IS A CRAZY WORLD WE LIVE IN AND IT’S NOT GOING TO GET EASIER AS CORRUPTION AND WICKEDNESS CONTINUE TO PLAY TOGETHER!

 

WHAT CAN WE DO?

Although we are not to be totally ignorant of what is occurring around us and live in recluse mentalities, the Lord does have a greater plan and focus for us during such tough times.

You and I as children of God will never really feel at home here on planet Earth. We have been Divinely implanted with a spiritual device deep in our spirits that longs for the “Home of Heaven”.

No more tears, no more night, no more longing to fully be-long! We have been walking a pathway of preparation, each of us in different stages of our lives, to transition from this decaying world and body into a heavenly place of resurrection and eternal abundant life.

It’s the living here now that is so like rough grit sandpaper to our nerve endings!

 

2 Timothy 4:18

The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack 

And will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. 

To him be glory for ever and ever. 

 

Psalm 61:3

For You have been a shelter and a refuge for me, 

A strong tower against the adversary.

 

We are in much need of a directional adjustment as believers right now, a redirecting of the compass, as the world turns itself upside down with malice, dictatorships, and political posturing.

We need to be certain that nothing of the world and its behaviors is hidden in our own hearts. We must hear that Magnetic pulling voice of the Holy Spirit, and obey it without turning left or right.

 

Deuteronomy 5:32

So be careful to do what the LORD your God has commanded you; Do not turn aside to the right or to the left. 

 

The Spirit of the Lord is calling out to His people in this very very serious and crucial moment to allow Him your ears that hear and your eyes that see to discern where the compass for your soul is located! It points to a dwelling place of Divine Rest and Protection.

There is a hidden deep place of safety only revealed to those of pure motive and clean hands.

 

THE LORD IS CALLING OUT TO YOU AND I.

“Come to Me! Run to Me! I know that you are heavily burdened by all of the concentrated pressures mounting around you.  

Run to the Dwelling place of Divine Rest and Protection!  

It will require you laying down the things that so easily set you off and get you weighed down with concern and anxiety.”

 

1 Peter 5:7

Casting the whole of your cares 

All your anxieties, 

All your worries, 

All your concerns, 

Once and for all on Him. 

For He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.

 

Come to the simple place.

Huddle into the shadow of My Wings for, 

I AM the Refuge for the child that heeds My voice and runs to Me, abandoning self made plans for protection and self-preservation.

I AM your shield, 

I AM your Fortress. 

But you must come to the Refuge with no agenda in your heart or a Message on your lips. You come to the Resting Place of Safety from the Storm to WAIT, Ponder, Rest and rethink your Life call.

 

Psalm 5:11

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; 

Let them ever sing for joy.

Spread your protection over them, 

That those who love your name may rejoice in you.

 

CONTINUAL SAFETY

When we walk in the way of surrender and tenderness with our ears attuned to the still small voice of God, we actually walk in the Overshadowing safety of the Presence of God. Training our spiritual ears to hear the voice of the Father is a lifetime guarantee of knowing when the storms or troubles will arise and is a promise for direction to a place of Divine Protection and direction whenever needed.

 

Psalm 16:9

Therefore my heart is glad 

And my tongue rejoices; 

My body also will rest secure

 

Rest Child of God. REST!

It is the hardest thing for the mind and body to do! Learning to rest when the world is screaming at a fevered pitch, “WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO NOW” is a hard-learned yet reachable discipline if we will lean into it and ask for God's help.

 

Hear the Voice of God calling you to enter into His rest. 

It is a place of pleasant simplicity and uncluttered doctrine. 

His Presence silences all of the noise of the day and noise of the Head.

 

HIS PRESENCE IS A REFUGE FOR THE WEARY

Dear child of God!  There is no judgment or shame there.

It is a restful place of learning to take up an easy yoke and a light burden.

Perhaps right now as you listen to this audio podcast or read this,

You might just sit back and Enter in to the Refuge of God.

Lay down the weight of worry and frustration. The anger at life all bottled up in rage and gloom!  

All you need to take with you into the shelter is a willing heart. 

Ready to trust the Divine Protector and Provider.

 

Enter In…

…to His Rest.

 

Psalm 33:22

May your unfailing love rest upon us, 

O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.

A_New_Season.jpg

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit

 Dear Believer,

GOD IS CRYING OUT, “I AM FOR YOU!”

I am not against you! I am with you! I am not far away from you! 

I am more real, more alive, and more at work in this world, than you can sometimes believe!”

“I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, 

can’t you see and discern it, perceive it? 

I will make a way in the wilderness 

and rivers in the desert.” 

-Isaiah 43:19

We all know and can relate to a bible story or parable that begins with a voice of mercy and compassion crying out in the wilderness in those strange and desert-like, dangerous places where we least expect it but most need it.

A MAN WAS TRAVELING DOWN A WILDERNESS ROAD that was so dangerous that it was sometimes called “the way of blood” or “the bloody pass.” And there out in the wilderness, the man fell into the hands of robbers, who stripped him, beat him, leaving him half dead on the side of the road.

As the man lay on the roadside, somewhere between Jerusalem and Jericho, somewhere between life and death, wanting to live, but also maybe wanting to die, he is ignored by two religious leaders who are also traveling down the same road.

GOD ONLY KNOWS WHY THESE MEN WHO YOU WOULD EXPECT TO STOP AND HELP, BLATANTLY IGNORED THE MAN. Maybe the were afraid of being defiled by touching a bloody corpse, thinking it might be a dead man, and heaven forbid they break with religious practices and protocols! Perhaps they thought the robbers were still nearby, or maybe they thought the man lying on ground was only pretending, playing some sort of trick so that when they came near him he could beat and rob them. For whatever reason, they believed it was much too risky for them to stop and risk care and extend compassion.

 THEN ALONG CAME THIS OTHER MAN. Luke calls him a Samaritan, which means this was someone who was despised and rejected by the religious establishment, someone who was often misunderstood and rarely respected, someone who knew something about pain and brokenness, betrayal and abandonment, God-forsakenness.  Someone who had spent many days and nights in the wilderness, himself being tempted and tried.

THIS ONE MAN WHO WAS THE LEAST AMONG THEM in their ability to see and perceive, never expected to stop and help, saw the man. He saw the man’s wounds, saw the man’s fear, saw the man’s despair and was moved with mercy and compassion. And there in the wilderness he risked his own life as he sacrificially came to him, selflessly bent himself down to the ground, and joined the man.

The man did not have to do anything to make this one come to him. Out of pure love, unconditional and unreserved, this one just came.

He then touched the man where the man most needed healing, pouring oil and wine on the man’s wounds and bandaging them. He then picked the man up and safely carried him out of the wilderness. He stayed with him, at his side through the darkness of the night. When morning came, he paid for the man’s debts, and made the promise: “I will come back. I will return.”

CAN YOU NOW UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS GOD SEEING ONE LYING IN THE WILDERNESS IN THEIR WEAKEST, MOST BROKEN STATE? Seeing one in their most desperate, most vulnerable need, and it is God being moved with mercy and compassion for that one? 

It is a voice crying out from the heavens into the wilderness:

“I am for you, not against you, I am with you, not away from you.

I am Emmanuel! (God WITH you!)  

I will risk my own life for you. 

I will give my all to take care of your wounds and to pick you up, 

to forgive all of your debts. 

And when you are ready, I will come back, and I will take you unto myself, so that where I am, you will also be.”

 

COMPASSION AND HUMBLE SERVICE IN THIS SEASON. 

Yes, right now in this very time, begins a move and season with God for those willing to STOP on their pathways of purpose and planning and to be a voice crying out in the wilderness in those places where we may least expect it, but where it’s needed the most.

YOU AND I ARE TO GOING TO COME UPON WOUNDED PEOPLE along our paths as we journey. Their wounds are not bloody and gaping holes on the outside. Instead, their hearts are broken. They have forgotten how to smile, for real, from the inside. They are insecure, lonely, and they wish they could trust again.

THEY CARRY UNSEEN LOADS OF GUILT, SHAME, AND SELF-LOATHING. They never feel comfortable in their own skin. They feel different although they don't quite know what 'normal' is. Broken hearts, oppressed spirits, mangled emotions, and tormented thoughts. Lying along the path you just happen to be traveling.

IF YOU'VE MET CHRIST, THEN YOU'VE MET THE HEALER. The One who makes all things new, a perfect Redeemer, has touched you. You are sealed with His Spirit. Spirit-filled believer you are a stream of living water that these people need to be saved, healed, and restored. The Spirit of God is often signified in the Old Testament Scriptures as holy anointing oil, and indicated in the New Testament Scriptures to be like a heart-gladdening new wine. 

BELIEVER! DRAW OUT AND POUR IN THE OIL AND WINE TO THE HURTING AND BROKEN.

Your tongue is the ladle, and your words the stream!

Speak kind words.

Speak healing words.

Proclaim truth.

Share the absolute truth of Jesus Christ.

Pray and intercede with faith.

 

YOU AND I ARE MEANT TO BE MORE THAN AN OCCASIONAL GOOD SAMARITAN.               We are always on duty,  as an ambassador of Jesus Christ and a minister of reconciliation                  (2 Corinthians 5:18-20). You are drawing on a never-ending supply!

SO GO ON! Pour out the oil and the wine.  

A PROPHETIC INSIGHT

“It’s The Season and Time, To Pour Out The Oil and Wine”

“When I the Spirit of Grace and Compassion look down upon mankind, I do not see as man sees. No! I see each situation, hear each conversation and discern what is good and evil in each life.

My Oil, My Holy vibrant Spirit is available to overflowing for those who would willingly look with the eyes of my compassion and eyes of discernment. It will flow out and into the driest of people, working loose the cemented stones of the hardened heart. It will soothe and soften the scarred and scabbed marks of a hard life, and refresh.

It is a risky thing to go and search out those fallen by the roadside where there are so many other routes of safety to do good works. But remember, I was the One who poured out the wine, my life’s blood, so that you might live and be cleansed.

I was a man, despised and rejected, yet I obeyed and took the road, the path, which was set in front of me. And I found you, broken and bruised, lost and confused, looking for help when others abused, robbed and broke your heart and mind.

Take my oil, take the power of the wine, and use it in this hour.  Anoint and bind up the wounds of the brokenhearted, teaching those captive how to be free. From your well of compassion I will pour out upon the darkness of mankind. 

It’s time, to pour out My Oil and My wine and to create places of rest in worship and peace for those who need a resting place and haven from the battered and violent landscape of the world and it’s dangerous paths that lead to harm.

Pour! Pour! Pour!

I will do exploits as you physically and spiritually pour out the oil and the wine among my people and into the lives of those whom I will send you to.

You have been filled up with the Oil of The Holy Spirit to BURN brightly and to spill over into your generation!

 Declare it to the world! Speak it to the darkness-you have been filled and you are continuously infused with a perpetual well of power, a prophetic declaration is on your lips as the oil runs through you and you have the eyes of Christ, who has baptized you with this oil of power and anointing-to see with His discernment!

GO in power; make your proclamation and feed that vision Sons and Daughters, who pour out the Fresh Oil and Fresh wine in My name! PROCLAIM THE WORD OF LIFE!

It’s not by ability, nor by power but BY MY SPIRIT SAYS THE LORD!

And You Shall Be My Witnesses along all of the pathways that you travel! You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." - Acts 1:8

fragile_to_fervent.png 

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit

If you would ask the true "heart determined" believer in Christ today just what it is that they need now more than ever, it would be totally answered by the very raw words;

“I am need to have full clarity of mind and a fearless trust in the knowledge of how much God loves me.”

 

WE ARE IN ONE HOT REFINERS FIRE!

People are winding up in anger, disbelief and frustration over this "Unfair" season the Bride of Christ is in! It just isn't fair! We have been so good! We have laid down everything!

Why oh why are WE being singled out?

“I am weary with my crying; my throat is parched;

My eyes fail while I wait for my God.”

~ Psalm. 69:3

 

“ I am weary with my sighing; every night I make my bed swim,

I dissolve my couch with my tears.

~ Psalm. 6:6

Does this sound like you right now?

 

EVERYONE IS GOING TO BE TESTED SOMETIME!

The strongest impression I have received from the Father about the condition of His Bride is this. When things are going "fabulously" for her, when all of heaven is blessing, she wants to keep it that way! If she is not in a place of great humility and thankfulness for what the Lord is doing, she tends to assume that, “It’s about time folks knew just how long I've been waiting for them to see just how great this church, or ministry or intellectual skill I've been soooo blessed with is!”

 

Then comes the attitude that we have to keep it allotted to only a few “real winners” like ourselves, and we become exclusive and look for only high rollers to run with.

And then. AGAIN comes the TEST.

Persecution comes, mug slinging, attacks on personal integrity, character assassination, and again the fiery trial.........of our soul.

 

TO REMOVE IMPURITIES - GOD USES A HOT OVEN!

These trials as if by fire are only to test our faith, to show that it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold-- and our faith is far more precious to God than mere gold.

“So if your faith remains strong after being tried by fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.” ~ I Peter chapter 1: 7

 

HOW ARE YOU DOING?

The Lord is working the Bride overtime right now to deal with selfish ambition, personal comfort, and any other areas of personal agenda or presumption.

YES! Presumption.

We as Christians have often presumed that because we are Christians…

…we should never experience severe sorrow, grief, loss, or devastation.

This “fairy tale” stems from a huge level of denial and total self focus. It is also a very Western culture mindset.

 

A dear friend of mine who went to China and who was visiting a Chinese underground church group, had a reality check that shook her to the core of her faith.

She thought that she was coming to this group to “help and bless them.”

When they asked her what could they pray for the church in American about in order to bless them she was flummoxed! Her reply was, “We came to see how we might help you! ” How can we pray for you?”

The response back was, “Pray that we would not be fearful or silent about the gospel of Jesus we share when the authorities beat us or imprison us. Pray that we remain strong enough physically to endure the persecution we receive and not fear what man may do to us.”

SOBERING ISN’T IT!

When others around us are going through loss, trauma, or heart breaking circumstances, sadly, many believers turn away in disgust or even more disturbing, display an arrogant attitude of thinking they are more blessed by God because their lives are not so complex or “shattered” as those around them who must have done SOMETHING wrong to bring these things upon themselves.

Regrettably, some of the pain some saints are experiencing is due to the disobedience of those in the Body of Christ around them! They resist the hand of God and react against others in retaliation toward God bringing correction or exposure to their secret lifestyle of personal gain or need for power!

 

WE ARE NOT ALONE!

“For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners

against Himself, so that you may not grow weary and lose heart.”

Heb. 12:3

 

Admit it! It is hard to not lose heart right now!

The world is in a tailspin and lukewarm Christians are showing their true colors! It's time to deal with this! It is NOT going to go away!

AGONY IS MORE SEVERE WHEN IT IS "ENHANCED" BY BETRAYAL!

Jesus went through it. Stephen went through it and so did hundreds of others! AND it hurts, and disillusions, and causes us to be so very very weary!

 

“You will be delivered up and betrayed even by parents and

brothers and relatives and friends, and [some] of you they will

put to death.

Luke 21:16

 

THE TRANSFORMATION FROM FRAGILE …

…TO FERVENT IS COMING!

“When?” You may ask…..

For my determined purpose is that I may know Him. That I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly, and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection which it exerts over believers, and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed in spirit into His likeness even to His death, in the hope…

… That if possible I may attain to the spiritual and moral] resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead even while in the body.

Not that I have now attained [this ideal], or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me His own.

I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do, it is my one aspiration, forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the supreme and heavenly prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward.

_Philippians 3:10-14 (Amplified Bible)

 

HERE ARE A FEW THINGS THE LORD WOULD REQUIRE:

1.) To gain HIS strength, we must relinquish our power or control

over what we think of others. We will be judged by the way we

judge others when they struggle. Pious and lofty lectures are not

the Kingdom language of healing and restoration. Loving-

kindness and Mercy reveal the heart of godly maturity in a

believer when dealing with the sorrows and anguish of others.

“Like one who takes away a garment on a cold day,

Or like vinegar poured on soda, is one who sings songs

To a heavy heart.”

Proverbs 25:20

 

2.) Reach out in kindness to those under fire.

Encourage them to stand. Encourage them to seek the Lord.

Bless them and don't talk about them when they struggle!

"The Lord God has given me the tongue of disciples,

That I may know how to sustain the weary one with a word.

He awakens me morning by morning,

He awakens my ear to listen as a disciple."

Isaiah 50:4 3

 

3.) Get still. Stop organizing, planning, and pushing ahead into

oblivion! God really does have a plan!

“Though youths grow weary and tired,

And vigorous young men stumble badly,

Yet those who wait for the Lord, Will gain new strength;

They will mount up with wings like eagles,

They will run and not get tired,

They will walk and not become cynical. “

Is. 40:30 -31

 

4.) TRUST FOR A MOMENT!

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

Will He REALLY refresh us in this time of struggle?

His Loving Word says so.

“For I satisfy the weary ones,

And refresh everyone who languishes."

Jer. 31:25 5

 

THE LORD IS PRODUCING ENDURANCE WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT!

“Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial;

For once he has been approved,

He will receive the crown of life,

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

James 1:12

 

THE FATHER IS URGING US TO RUN TO HIM.

He is there! Even in the fog of struggle, loss, anxiety, and also in seeming success.

He wants us to be desperate for Him and rely wholly on His voice.

To make all of our decisions based on His plan for the whole earth!

 

Seek Him.

Lean into His Voice.

Elevate Grace and Mercy…

…And lower your own opinion of yourself and your abilities to

“lecture” others into healing or restoration.

 

WALK SOBERLY IF YOU ARE LIVING IN ABUNDANCE AT THIS TIME, ON ANY LEVEL.

Keep the vigil of prayer you are keeping for others well lit by the reflecting memories of past times when you yourself needed the Merciful Hand of God to lift you from agony and redeem your life from the pit.

 

Let us be so devoted to the “One” who lavished and spilled out all He had, that we might repeat His actions, and in so doing, bring His Glory to it’s fullest measure and depth.

His Mercy….

…Endures.

Forever.

 

“Then will the lame leap like a deer,  And the mute tongue shout for joy.

Water will gush forth in the wilderness,  And streams in the desert.”

Isaiah 35:6
