Name me an overcomer who has not overcome something... I didn't think you could. That is the nature of being an overcomer, it is characterized by OVERCOMING! All of us want to be overcomers, few of us want something to overcome.

We are in a season of increased spiritual attack, it seems that the enemy is "...coming in like a flood..." (Is.59:19). We must understand that satan is not God's enemy, he is OUR enemy... he is a pawn in the hand of the Almighty Sovereign God and can do only what God allows or what man, through the forfeited spiritual authority of harboring iniquity, allows. God is now allowing a season of increased attack, and it is intended to ultimately bring forth the purposes of God. Normally when many of us come under attack, we turn tail and run or do everything we can to cause the attack to cease. We go into a DEFENSIVE mode and never enter into the ultimate purpose of God that is found in the MIDST of an attack.

Here are a couple of examples of what I call 'defensive intelligence' or God's purpose being concealed and only found in the midst of an attack:
1. exposing weakness to be dealt with
2. exposing increase or blessing that is forthcoming

1. So much in life hinges on issues of spiritual authority as our lifestyles, our mentalities, and our declaration (our words) are establishing the spiritual atmosphere. In other words, the kingdom that is established within us (whether that is darkness or Light) greatly effects the kingdom around us. God's desire is that we be living stones (1Pet.2:5) that grow into a Mountain (Christ) that eventually fills the whole earth (Dan.2:35)... the Kingdom that is established 'within' us establishing the kingdom around us... Light growing brighter and dispelling the darkness. Many of us are blind however, to the weaknesses or areas where we are actually deterring the advancement of the Kingdom by either our lifestyle, our mentalities or our words. Now then, is an enemy going to attack you in an area where you are fortified and strong?... NOT! The enemy is going to attack you where you are WEAK... thus, that weak point you were blind to is now exposed. This is what I refer to as 'defensive intelligence'. This is the point at which many people fail because they focus on their weakness and 'retreat' in one way or another. This is NOT the time to pull back and retreat, it is the time to go on the OFFENSIVE (I didn't say to BE offensive!). We must understand that not only is God exposing a blind spot, but that is also the 'kairos' time to press into victory.

It is the principle of the 'man of sin' being revealed that Christ within us might slay him with the prophetic proclamation of the finished work of the Cross. When we are under attack and our weakness is exposed is the time to move forward in an OFFENSIVE, because just as God supplied the grace to expose our weakness (we rarely think of it as grace!), He also supplies the grace for our victory over that weakness. This grace can only be accessed in the midst of attack and in the midst of our offensive maneuver... and the best place to wage this offensive is on our knees! Rather than just trying to control the damage of a spiritual attack or perhaps reclaim what the enemy is trying to steal, this is the time to step forward on his turf and command the advancement of the Kingdom.

For example, if your finances come under attack, don't just beg God for enough money to pay the bills, move forward in an offensive and command this natural realm to release abundant resources for advancing the Kingdom (assuming your lifestyle is not one of material idolatry, that you'll just squander it on selfish desires). If, as with many men, your morals come under attack through temptation, don't just beg God to forgive some lustful thoughts... go on the offensive and command a total release of any hold that lust may try to have on you; then go another step and remove any provision you may have for fulfilling lust. I think you get the basic idea...

2. The Word declares to us that He has "...blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ..."(Eph.1:3); so the blessing or increase that manifests in the natural begins in the spiritual realm. Ever notice how the enemy will seek to steal or delay your increase? My friend, it is at that point of attack that we must step forward in an offensive and command the release of that which God has destined for us. Often our blessing or increase is disguised as a 'land full of giants'... and all too often we end up seeing ourselves as grasshoppers and missing our God-ordained increase. We must begin to look at spiritual attacks as OPPORTUNITIES to launch a strategic offensive. If you find yourself under constant attack, it may very well be the grace of God providing many opportunities to advance the Kingdom. Remember, according to Eph. 6 there is no armor on our back side, we are equipped to move forward!

After I had been meditating and writing on this subject, I saw a colonial war movie and I was stirred by a particular scene. The colonists were faltering in the heat of battle and some were starting to retreat as their enemy was beginning to get the upper hand. Suddenly their leader took their flag and rode on horseback through the battle waving the flag and shouting, "Hold the line and ADVANCE!"... well, you can figure the rest of the story. It was a major turning point, and victory was wrought. I'm reminded of Is.59:19 as it says. "When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard (flag or banner) against him...". This is what God desires, that we raise the banner of the Lion of Judah in the midst of battle and see the Kingdom forcefully advanced... the kingdom of the heavenlies, the spiritual atmosphere suffers violence, and the violent take it by force!

All of us want to be more than conquerors in Christ... few of us want something to conquer... God will graciously provide both. Let us move FORWARD, releasing the power that is only found in the midst of battle.

My Bride, you are at a crossroads. The decisions you make will have great consequences in the days, months, and years ahead. I place before you life and death, blessing and cursing, mercy and judgment - now you must choose.

Do not be swayed by the opinions of others or take counsel from the ungodly. Do not take counsel at the stocks. Get your orders from above. I am raising up an army who will stand on the side of righteousness.

My desire is to pour Myself out to you, My Bride, but you must be in a position to receive. I am looking for those who have humble hearts. I am looking for people who will be on their knees before Me. My desire is to pour myself out to a unified Bride and not a harem, for the Bride and the Bridegroom cannot walk together unless they are in agreement.

I have called you, My Bride, to walk by faith and not by feelings and emotions, for they will be deceptive to her. Do not believe all that you hear in the days and months ahead, but test the spirits to see where they are coming from.

My Bride, I am asking for your eyes. Give me your eyes. Do not look to the left, to the right, or behind you. I am asking for your ears. Give Me your ears. Do not be swayed by the opinions of man. Follow the cloud, and not the crowd. In the days ahead there will be many voices trying to lead you into off the mark. I have called you to hearken to the Good Shepherd, and not the voice of a stranger. Do not be swayed by what "looks good". Do not give your eyes to that which is unholy. Set your affections on the things that are above, not on things that are below. Do not forsake your birthright for a morsel of meat.

I have called My Bride to walk the narrow path, for wide is the way of destruction. I am looking for a Bride with tunnel vision, looking ahead and up, not to the left, right or behind.

Come to the Throne, My Bride. I desire to make a great exchange with you: beauty for ashes, blessing for cursing, the Garment of Praise for the Spirit of heaviness. If you will give Me all of you, I will give you all that I have for you.

I ask you to be a people of faith. You have not, because you ask not. Bring before Me, your desires, your hopes, and dreams, and I will purify them. Bring Me your hearts, and I will put them through the threshing floor.

My Bride, the veil has been rent. You can either be on one side or the other. My desire is to pull you through. My desire is for you to go all the way into the Holy of Holies.

Arise, My Bride, and come up where you belong. Do not stay where you are. Launch out into the deep. You must make the choice.

There are people waiting for you to make the choice. There are people whose destinies depend upon the choices that you will make. There are souls at stake. The Groaning Creation awaits your decision.

There is a war to be won. I am not seeking for a Bride to fight with. I am seeking a Bride to fight along side of. Do not grow weary. The battle is mine, but the victory is yours. Those of you who see it through will get the reward. You must choose: the thrill of victory, or the agony of defeat.

You, My children, were born for this hour. There is a divine plan that I have, and everyone has a part to play. I am calling you to take your place on the Wall. You are about to receive your marching orders.

The Cross is at the crossroads, My Bride. I am asking you to lay your desires at the foot of the Cross. Give Me your stoney hear and I will give you hearts of flesh. Give me your hopes and dreams, and I will show you the dream that I have for you. Come to the altar.

My Bride, you know My voice. Though there will be voices that seek to imitate My voice, but I ask My Bride to recognize the difference between the voice of Her Bridegroom and the voice of a stranger.

I am awaiting your decision. I stand with open arms, waiting to receive you, waiting for you to receive your inheritance. Come, and I will give you what you have longed for, My precious Bride.

HOS 3:1 The LORD said to me, "Go, show your love to your wife again, though she is loved by another and is an adulteress. Love her as the LORD loves the Israelites, though they turn to other gods and love the sacred raisin cakes."
ISA 1:21 See how the faithful city has become a harlot! She once was full of justice; righteousness used to dwell in her--but now murderers!

"A King will reign in righteousness and princes will reign with Him."

"I AM the King who is coming. I AM He who will reign with an iron scepter. I will reign over the land of my people, Israel. You looked for a land filled full of milk and honey. You went in search for that land. You came to the river of the land, but you never crossed over. In all your years of toil and wearisome endeavors, you have never come to that place of rest. See,,,,,I AM there in the midst of the river with upraised hands, beckoning to come to Me."

"If, you would rule with Me, then you must give up rule over your own kingdoms."

(The Lord showed me a crown of some sort that had many jewels laid in it. It had been fashioned and was now ready to be given. It appeared to be given to His bride. He then showed me a woman who had on a gown of fushia or reddish purple. She had wrap-around feathers like would be used on stage. She was on stage as a show girl, and was dancing or twirling around on stage. It saddened me very much to think who this woman was.)

"This woman represents my bride. She has danced with other men and other religions. She has gone whoreing after other men in her pursuit of them. When will my bride give-up her pursuits like this? I want her to be pure and undefiled. She is not without stain or wrinkle in her. Dear people of mine, "When will you stop?" When will you cease from your worldly pursuits? You cannot "cross over" into that land until you have given these things up. "

"I long for my bride to be ready for Me. I look forward to that day. I AM saddened though about her appearance that it is now. I AM sending a purifying wave of my Spirit to her. I ask that you would receive it. Come to Me my love, and I will welcome you back in. You are mine. This is my church and my love. I will care for her. "

1 Samuel 1:1-28

There are many people within the body of Christ that have been called spiritual Hannah's. God has used your lives as spiritual wombs where the Holy Spirit has planted heavenly visions and dreams.

You have carried these visions and allowed them to grow deep within despite the outward signs of barrenness and seemingly fruitlessness in the past years. And like Hannah, year after year, you did not stop crying out to the Lord to bring to life all that you've sensed growing inside of you. You have faced provocation, you have cried bitter tears. Like Hannah, you have been mistaken for a drunk because of your desperate cries for help.

The Lord wants to announce to every one who has walked this path that your season for birth is at hand. As the Lord remembered Hannah and in the course of time she conceived and gave birth to Samuel (1 Samuel 1:19-20)-- So your time for giving birth to your Samuel has also come and is now at hand.

But like Hannah who brought Samuel to the house of the Lord and gave him to the Lord and he worshipped the Lord there-- So many of the Samuel's that will be birthed in the coming days will belong totally to the Lord.

Like Abraham, your Isaac will soon be born to you. And in the same way that God instructed Abraham to offer Isaac as a burnt offering-- So you too have to offer your Isaac to God. (Genesis 22:1-2) "Even now, prepare your hearts" says the Lord. "Learn to let go even before You received them [your Isaacs and your Samuels]. Take hold of them lightly for they belong to Me."

Many visions that God has planted in the spiritual wombs of His people are about to come to fullness. However, like Hannah everyone of them will belong to God from the moment of birth. He will raise up others to care and make this vision grow-- and like Hannah, many who have carried them will have to watch their spiritual visions grow from a distance.

The Lord is saying today that we must not be afraid to let go of our Samuel's once they are birthed-- No matter how young they look and regardless of the surroundings where they will grow. The Lord will overshadow these visions and--just like Samuel, God's hand will be upon them and He will not allow these visions to die but will fulfill the purpose for which they have been birthed. (3 Samuel 3:19-20)

Even now the Lord is speaking to many of the spiritual Hannah's and encouraging us to lay our spiritual Samuel's to Him. He wants full control of how these visions will be fulfilled. He will determine and chart the path that they will take to grow. He may choose to call and appoint others to do this, or He may, in due time return stewardship of these visions to us.

However the Lord would choose to do this, He desires for His children to have that assurance that our coming Samuel's will be in GOOD HANDS. --HIS HANDS.

In the same manner that the Lord was with Samuel as he grew up , and he let none of his words fall to the ground-- and Samuel's words came to all Israel (3 Samuel 19-20)-- So the Most High God will do the same with every one of our spiritual Samuel's.

May the peace of the Most High God flood our soul as we choose to walk the path that Hannah did. And may these words from the mouth of Hannah becomes ours too as we rejoice in the victory that the Lord will bring to those who love and obey Him all the way.

HANNAH'S PRAYER: ( 1 Samuel 2:1-12)
Then Hannah prayed and said:
"My heart rejoices in the Lord; in the Lord my horn is lifted high.
My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in your deliverance.
"There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides you;
there is no Rock like our God.
"Do not keep talking so proudly or let your mouth speak such arrogance, for the Lord is a God who knows and by him deeds are weighed.
"The bows of the warriors are broken, but those who stumbled are armed with strength.
" Those who were full hire themselves out for food, but those who were hungry hunger no more. She who was barren has borne seven children, but she who has had many sons pines away.
"The Lord brings death and makes alive; he brings down to the grave and raises up.
"The Lord sends poverty and wealth; he humbles and he exalts.
"He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor.
"For the foundations of the earth are the Lord's; upon them he has set the world.
"He will guard the feet of his saints, but the wicked will be silenced in darkness.
It is not by strength that one prevails; those who oppose the Lord will be shattered. He will thunder against them from heaven; the Lord will judge the ends of the earth. He will give strength to his king and exalt the horns of his anointed."
Then Elkanah went home to Ramah, but the boy ministered before the Lord under Eli the priest.

A letter from Jesus

Roger Taylor

This Sunday morning, as I was lying in bed praying, I got a picture of a letter. There was fancy scrollwork across the top in gold. It started out, "Dear Church," and the signature was simply, "Jesus". It was about a page long, but I could not make out the other words. I kept looking and concentrating as hard as I could, but the words just wouldn't come clear. I said, "Lord, what are you saying."

When I said that, a large drop of blood fell on the letter and splattered all over it, covering almost all the words.

I thought, "oh,oh!" I asked, "Lord, what does that mean? Then He began to read the blood-splattered letter to me.

"Dear Church,

I am sending this letter to you, My church, because you have lost sight of the cross and the cost. Like Israel of old, and Gomer, you are playing the harlot, seeking other lovers. You spend almost all of your time seeking the things of this world: money, position, possessions, and prestige. How much time do you spend seeking Me, the lover of your soul?

You spend the resources I give you on yourselves, while millions are starving and millions are going to Hell. Even that which you say you give back to Me is spent on larger buildings and plusher pews for yourselves. Most of your leaders are more concerned with the budget than they are with holiness.

Do you not know that it is time for the Bride to come forth, a bride without spot or wrinkle? Will you be like the five wise virgins and fill your life with My presence? Remember, the five foolish versions were waiting for the Bridegroom expectantly, but they did not care enough to purchase enough oil. Are you preparing for the Bridegroom's coming?

Oh, My people, don't you know how much I long for you to walk with Me and talk with Me as good friends should and do? Yet, you are more than friends to Me. Do you not know that the Song of Songs was written about you and I? 'Come away, my love, my fair one.' Come, search for Me and you shall surely find Me. Seek not the things of this world, nor follow the traditions of men that have made My Word of no effect. Follow me alone according to My Word. Share what you have with those in need and you shall have no lack in the coming time of troubles. Trust only in Me, not your jobs, your bank accounts, your stock portfolios, or your own abilities. All these things shall soon be shaken. Only in My arms are there peace, safety and provision.



Sharolyn Baldwin

My Fire Is My Love. I send it forth to burn away everything that is not of me and not everasting. If it is not of My Kingtom it has to go. But that which is of Me and remains will be Polished and will have been Strengthed. My children this purifying must take place. Come now and lay all that is of your ways and agenda's down before Me and let's began this process. For you are to be My Beautiful Bride without spot or wrinkle. Come and make room for My Love to burn away the dross. For this is truly the way...For My Beautiful Bride.

Don't Suffer Shipwreck

A. W. Tozer

This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, having faith and a good conscience, which some having rejected, concerning the faith have suffered shipwreck.... --1 Timothy 1:18-19

Yet the ministry is one of the most perilous of professions. The devil hates the Spirit-filled minister with an intensity second only to that which he feels for Christ Himself. The source of this hatred is not difficult to discover. An effective, Christ-like minister is a constant embarrassment to the devil, a threat to his dominion, a rebuttal of his best arguments and a dogged reminder of his coming overthrow. No wonder he hates him.

Satan knows that the downfall of a prophet of God is a strategic victory for him, so he rests not day or night devising hidden snares and deadfalls for the ministry. Perhaps a better figure would be the poison dart that only paralyzes its victim, for I think that Satan has little interest in killing the preacher outright. An ineffective, half-alive minister is a better advertisement for hell than a good man dead. So the preacher's dangers are likely to be spiritual rather than physical, though sometimes the enemy works through bodily weaknesses to get to the preacher's soul. God Tells the Man Who Cares, 90-91.

"Lord, the battle is intense and the enemy is strong. I pray for every one of my fellow-servants this morning, especially those who may be close to succumbing. Give Your great grace and victory today. Amen." Our Old Nature

Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. --Colossians 3:5

There are a lot of people trying to get away with the old man. What do I mean by the old man? I mean your pride, your bossiness, your nastiness, your temper, your mean disposition, your lustfulness and your quarrelsomeness. What do I mean, Reverend? I mean your study, your hunting for a bigger church, being dissatisfied with the offering and blaming the superintendent because you cannot get called. The reason you cannot get called is nobody wants you. That is what I mean, Reverend.

Deacons, what do I mean? I mean sitting around in board meetings wearing your poor pastor out, because you are too stubborn to humble yourself and admit you are wrong.

What do I mean, musicians? I mean that demeanor that makes you hate somebody that can sing a little better than you can. I mean that jealousy that makes you want to play the violin when everybody knows you can't, especially the choir director. You hate him, wish he were dead, and secretly pray that he would get called to Punxsutawney. That is what I mean. All of this may be under the guise of spirituality and we may have learned to put our head over on one side, fold our hands gently and put on a beatific smile like St. Francis of Assisi, and still be just as carnal as they come. Success and the Christian, 42-44.

"Wow! Tozer pulls no punches this morning, Lord! May Your Holy Spirit bring the proper conviction and repentance to my heart and give me victory over any of these carnal thoughts that might be mine today. Amen."

Refiners Fire


I choose to be holy, set apart for you my Lord. Ready to do your will. Purify my heart, cleanse me from within, make me holy, cleanse me from my deep sin within. Refiners fire, my hearts one desire is to be holy. Set apart for your work.

The above words are the words to a worship song that I thoroughly enjoy worshiping at our saviours feet to. They say the very desire of my inner heart. However, I have noticed that what I sing with my lips and how I live my daily life many times conflict. Am I a hypocrite, I don't think so. I am just acknowledging that deep with in me is a struggle. A struggle to "live the life". Deep in my soul I struggle some times with the question what is the battle for. I hear his voice calling me to draw deeper. Yet when I draw neigh to his presence I realize again that I still have sin "in my camp (heart)". I fall on my face crying, father forgive me. I study his word and find Paul speaks of this very struggle in Romans. I purpose to serve him with a clean heart. I really enjoy being in his presence. I have no problem with sin in his presence. It is when I walk among the world. I find the tug of war begins at the front door. I find that the old nature just does not want to lie down and die. I find, as Paul states, I MUST die daily. I must present my body as a living sacrifice daily, many times hourly. I hear his voice calling to me "will you come and fellowship with me?' I answer, yes Lord, yes. I long to worship you in your presence. It's so refreshing. If I could dwell there and not get entangled in the affairs of this world, I would.

To me that is heart felt "renewal". I just want to bask in his presence. However, what good does it do this world if I bask in his presence (touching heaven) and I don't impact those around me (changing earth). I hear fellowships in the body on television and radio declaring that they are in the midst of revival. Then I listen as they define revival. What they describe should not be the exception but the normal. We the body of Christ have gotten so out of communion with our father that the norm has become the unusual. I yearn daily to walk in his presence. But, again, I contend with my flesh (senses).

What is "RENEWAL" to you? What impact does it have on your life? Does it stir the battle between your flesh and spirit man?

What is "REVIVAL"? What are you reviving? How do you define your relationship with our eternal father? Are you hearing his voice? Are you crawling to him with a humble heart?

What has captured your attention? Are you pursuing him and his presence? Are you seeking the riches of this world?

I am daily realizing how much of a tug this world has on me. I have to labor in this world to provide for my families needs. I am realizing that I must daily keep my communication open with my father or else I grow distant and cold. What about you? When is the last time you just set time aside and adored our eternal father. It is soooo refreshing.

Words and emotions mean nothing. They change with our environment. But heart felt worship changes us. I have discovered that as soon as I purpose to worship and draw neigh to our dad, the first line of defense the enemy puts up is condemnation. But, when I start repenting of everything the Holy Spirit reveals to me I see him striping away those dirty garments and he ushers me into his awesome presence. That is the refiner's fire.

In his presence,


Fear Not For I Am Still God!

Carylann Hartley

Be not afraid! Have I not spoken this before? Am I still not the same God that I was yesterday and will be tomorrow? Is my arm to short or has my sight grown dim? I AM the same YESTERDAY, TODAY and FOREVER! I DO NOT CHANGE! I Am in control of all that you see going on. FEAR NOT! Those things that you see taking place must happen in order for the things to be fulfilled that will bring about the new heavens and the new earth. Do not think that all is not well but pray for the time to be shortened that the elect would not falter or fall.

My people have much to learn and the time is very short. Do not rely on your old ways of doing things for those ways are not going to work today. Just like the manna had to be picked up fresh every day so My ways must be fresh. I do not change but I do expect change in My people, My Bride. I will show you new ways, better ways that you have not yet seen or heard of. I will show you things that you can not even dream of at this time. Do not be afraid of change or of what is to come.

Think about what is NOW not tomorrow for tomorrow is not here yet. For this is the day of your salvation. This is the day that in which you must be willing to change and to go out in love to My lost sheep. My Love for you is to be your strength and it will carry you to your destiny. Do not think that someone else will go and share the words and thoughts and gifting that I have given you to share.

You are a special piece of workmanship from My hand and there is no other like you. Do not think less of yourself than you ought nor should you think more highly of yourself and walk in pride but rather know who you are in Me and go forth boldly to fulfill your destiny! This is not a time of false modesty nor a time to be intimidated by those you deem more knowledgeable or more gifted than yourself. You are the one that I am calling to Go and Do all that I tell you to do and to say - without fear or hesitation.

Do you not know that I have called you and if I have called you then I will supply all that you need to carry out the assignment I give you! My people have been drinking the milk for too long now. It is time to eat the solid food and give the milk to the babies. It is time for the Bride to become ready. It is time for her to grow up!

There are many things that I must teach you quickly, so learn to hear and obey My voice and to move quickly when I tell you to move. You must be like Gideon's Army, always on the alert and always ready. Things are going to accelerate at a rate that you can not even imagine now but in the next year or so you will be amazed at the changes in your own situations and those in the world. Do not believe the lies of the enemy nor listen to them. By listening you are already falling into a trap and will start to believe them. Remember that I Am in control and ALL things are being prepared. Do not lean on your own understanding. Believe that I Am who I say I Am and can and will do what I have said I would do! Do not doubt or fear! Believe and Trust in Me for I will not fail you.

Prophecy to the Prophets


Isaiah 49:2
"He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of His hand He hid me; He made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in His quiver."

To those who are called as prophets of the Lord:

Do not trust what appears to be the end of the battle, for I declare, it is time to war! Apparent victory can lead to defeat if you fail to recognize the spiritual implications that will be made known to you.

The courage, boldness, and bravery I have placed within you is what shall carry you through the coming decade. Guard diligently the motives and inclinations of your heart. Do not be swayed by the favor of man. Do not be dulled by seemly lack of activity from the enemy. Remain loyal, remain true, remain faithful unto Me. Listen and I will tell you the secrets of My heart that you might proclaim them to the world.

There is life and death in your tongue. Many listen to My voice through yours. You are My mouthpiece indeed, but to be fruitful you must be hidden in My hand, and to speak you must bear My heart. You can only bear My Heart as yours remains tender and humble and hidden in Mine.

I will quiet the questions that arise, not by giving the answers you want to stand strong, but through granting the grace you need to bow down. Allow Me to do My work as you are an instrument in My hand, sharp and quick. There is nothing you can do on your own that will further My kingdom. I must continue to polish and refine you, and am about that process continually. As I sharpen you in My Hands, the work is often done in secret, but nothing remains hidden forever...

Do not ever judge by what you see or hear, do not judge one another at all. I say do not even judge yourselves! (1 Cor. 4:1-5.) You do not have access to all that I am about in an individual any more than you understand what I am doing in this country. Things are not always what they appear. Open your eyes to hear what I am saying!

Do not misinterpret perceived victory as the answer you have longed for. Stand clothed in valor for the days that will follow. You are the answer the world has looked to find. You must be strong and ready to fight!

I will continue to keep you polished and sharp in My Hand as My heart beats in yours for the world beyond what you have known, and for the people you have yet to love.

Be an example in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity.

Open your mouth and My Hand will go forth.
