A Crisis Of Confidence and Identity

Marsha Burns

I speak to many who find yourselves in a crisis of confidence and identity, for you went forth in faith and obedience with the light that you had at the time, but your did not foresee the attacks of the enemy and persecution that you would endure. And, you allowed false hope to rule your heart, thus bringing disappointment and discouragement. But, I say, open your heart now to further revelation and greater discernment of your times and seasons. Put aside all presumption, and allow the purging that is required before you proceed further. Now is the time to re-evaluate yourself in light of new evidence and to establish yourself once again in faith and obedience to My plans and purposes for you. Do not fear, but be sensitive to My leading and go forth in boldness.

Let Me Comfort You

Teresa Seputis

Dear Child, I see the pain and the agony that you have gone through. I see the times you have been hurt, the times that you have been poorly treated, the times that you have been wronged, the times that you have been misunderstood. I see the times you have been falsely accused. I see the times you have been abused, and sometimes even abused or wronged in My name.

Do you remember how I longed to gather Jerusalem under My wings as a hen gathers her chicks? I have that same longing to gather you and to wrap My arms around you and to comfort you. Do not pull back from Me because of your pain and hurt, do not refuse My love as Jerusalem refused Me. Allow Me to hold you. Allow Me to pour My healing and My strength and My comfort and My love into you.

Do not be angry at Me because I have not protected you from experiencing these things. There are many things that I have protected you from, that you are unaware of. You would not be alive today if it were not for My hand of protection over you.

But be aware that in this world you will have hardship and persecution. I warned you of this, so do not be surprised by it. The world system is ruled by Satan, who roams around looking for whom he may devour. His purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. And many in this world have chosen to submit to him and many accomplish his purposes for him. Because I have given them the gift of free will, they are able to choose to participate with the devil in harm and destruction and evil. At times you will be effected by their decision. At times I will protect you from this world system of hurt and evil. But at other times, I will not keep you from the fallout of it. Instead I will keep you in the midst of it. I will be with you to strengthen you, I will comfort you and give you a supernatural peace and joy despite the wrongful decisions of others impacting you.

I will never abandon you. I will never intentionally hurt you just to cause you pain. But there must be times when pain will come into your life. There are times when you must walk through hardship to do with Me what My Father is doing. Even I had to suffer at the hand of man to accomplish My Father's kingdom purposes. Do you think that My Father stopped loving Me when He turned Me over to be beaten and crucified? I say to you, He did not stop loving Me. In fact, He loved Me all the more for suffering for His sake, that His purposes might be accomplished. And He has poured much glory and much reward upon Me for enduring hardship and pain and suffering. It was difficult for Me for a short season. But now I have been glorified and I am full of joy. In fact, I have much joy that you have received Me as your Lord. Child, your heart after Me brings Me greater joy than you can ever know.

Know that the Father never stopped loving you, even when He allowed difficult things to happen to you. And I never stopped loving you. Just as I had to suffer at the hand of man, there will also be times that you will suffer in this world. But be of good cheer, for I have indeed overcome this world, and the pain and suffering is but a fleeting thing. You are destined for glory and you will be lifted up and the power of all pain and suffering will be broken off of you. And while it may seem like that is a long way away to you, I say to you that it is as much of a certainty as the air you breathe. In fact, there are ways where man can take your air away and cause you to suffocate, but there is no way that man can take away the eternal glory and victory and joy that I have prepared for those who belong to Me.

Yes, child, I have seen the pain and suffering that you have gone though. And it is My heart and My desire to comfort you in the midst of your suffering. Come to Me and allow Me to wrap My arms of love around you. Inhale My nearness and My comfort. Know that I will never leave you and receive strength from Me right now. For I will give you strength for whatever I call you to endure. And I desire to release My healing in your heart, to break the power of pain and suffering over you. I desire to put My joy within you, a joy that no man can take away from you no matter what they do to you -- for I am with you and I will never leave you.

Now come before Me and allow Me to breathe on you. Feel My comfort and My healing penetrate you. Feel My strength going into you. I will not leave you comfortless. I will not abandon you, I will be with you in all things and I will bring My glory into your situation. So trust Me little one. Know that I love you and My plans for you are good. Know that My desire for you is for a life and a future. Receive My love. For I am with you and I will never leave you.

Stewards Of the Mystery Of God

Patsy Shelton

Oh My people, be prepared for you are about to experience an anointing the likes of which you have never seen before. I am pouring out, and yea there is an outpouring of My spirit that the world has never seen before.

And what will this former and latter rain bring? It will not only bring creative miracles, signs and wonders but it will take you into realms of My Spirit where few have ever been before. I will drench and soak My people in an anointing that will not only changed their lives, but will change the lives of everyone that they touch.

This former and latter rain will be poured out in bucket fulls, from My throne. For My intention is to literally soak My own in this anointing. It will be an anointing that will open the widows of heaven, and I will hold back nothing.

Along with this anointing there will be a release of wisdom and revelation. Oh, I am talking about the mysteries of the ages that have been hidden from other generation. I am talking about revelation that will rock the religious and the religious system to its very core.

When will it come, and when will it be released? Now, I am doing this great and mighty outpouring now. And it will not run dry, and there will be no drought in the land for want of more of My Spirit. This will come not by the wisdom, or words of men, but I will send for My Spirit to distribute it among My people.

I have prepared those among My people that will be good stewards of the mysteries of their God, and to them I will even give a double portion. They will both ride on the high places of the earth, and they will have eyes to see the workings of My heavenly Kingdom.

There is much more that transpires in the Realm of God that My people have not been made aware of. But now, I will reveal through dreams, visions, translations, trances the in's and out's of the Temple of the Living God.

I will open heavenly gates, and I will open heavenly doors and the righteous will have entrance into the government of My heavenly Kingdom. There is worship in this realm, but oh so much more. So much more to been seen and so much more to be learned about the counsels of their God.

Never before to any generation, have these mysteries been revealed in their fullness. The prior generations have seen bits and pieces, but to this generation, and to those that will be good stewards, I will revel the mysteries of the government in heavenly places.

My heart is bursting with excitement, as I now invite My own, to look upon and to hear with their ears, that which transpires in heaven, yea even in the Realm of God. Yea even the mysteries long concealed from the eyes and ears of man.

And My written word, will be a vehicle also by which these mysteries are revealed. For I have those that will see in dreams and visions and that which they see I will lay before their very eyes in My Word.

There is a coming together of the things of their God, first in the realm of the Spirit, and then in the natural. Man is about to walk in revelation from My Word that will astound the realm of Christianity. This transition will even take My people to a new height.

My heart longs for godliness among My people, and the anointing that I am releasing, those things that are about to be revealed in dreams and visions, and that which I am about to reveal in My word, will even cause this transition from Christianity to godliness.

Have I not said, "Behold I do a new thing?" The fullness of the new thing is now being revealed without reservation. Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard neither have entered into the heart of man the things which I have prepared for them that love Me.

Things that have been bound in heaven are about to be loosed in the earth, for I have established those righteous among My people that will be the stewards of the Mysteries of God. Even the government and workings in heavenly places, saith the Most High God.

Your Wound Has Been Exposed

Ras Robinson

Your wound has been exposed. Now give your wound to me for my healing. I have born your pain and sorrow. I was with you when all of this happened and I want you to know that my hands, feet, head and side were hurt and wounded for you. My whole life and blood were spilled at cavalry that you need suffer needlessly no more. It is finished for you just as it was for me. All I need from you is that you receive what I am giving. My healing includes the restoration of all things. Trust me for the whole package of my grace. Stop appealing to others when I am your sufficiency. Your wound has been exposed.

And He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. 1 Peter 2:24

A New Revealing

Mary Lloyd

My chosen ones,

I have asked you to come to Me and you are fearful, turning aside to a comfort of rules to cleanse you instead of My living presence. I require your co-operation in a deeper level of confession and thus a fuller repentance befitting our relationship. Please know that you are only avoiding yourself when you avoid Me. I already know who you are, but I want YOU to. Listen. I have something beautiful for you up ahead.

You are as it were "sitting on the shelf", not willing to know Me as your Husband. Oh My love! Have you not understood that My desire is for you? Will you play safe on that shelf of partial commitment, believing yourself to be "as holy as you can be under the circumstances"?

I do not want you to be "caught out"; I do not want you to suffer the revealing of your true nature through sinfulness. But your avoidance will lead you into this. Let Me in. Let Me show the Light into your dark corners with My Truth. Feel the weight of My Truth upon you as we experience it together. Be under no illusion who you are.

The enemy can't catch you out with something you already know, something you have already allowed Me in on. My love is upon you forever no matter what. But you must be acquainted with the content of your own heart through the light of My Truth.

Oh! As you give Me yourself in the fullness of who you are, and as you know Me, I will be a fullness unto you. All of your needs for mercy, for love, for acceptance, for wholeness are completely met in Me. Your heart will break open into worship: even the alabaster box of your heart will break open to release the odour of your worship and praises unto Me, your King, your Husband, your God...and you will pour out your love.

The power of the Truth active in your life is as bold brushstrokes of light across the dark strongholds of the enemy. The more you are able to exist in the Truth, even the uncomfortable truth, so the darkness will retreat. Lies have no power in the strong light of Truth. Do not despise this process. Do not throw up your hands in despair at who you are. I have made provision, know it.

The power of the worship that flows from your humbling before Me will be known to you. Your gifts will no longer be blighted by impotence. You will feel yourself rise up as never before, and move forward in a joy you have not previously known. This is my promise to you.

You will begin to understand more fully what holiness is. As the darkness desperses, and you realize where you are standing, so will crumble the strongholds upon which all unbelief is anchored. And from this place you will know the fragrance of your prayers is reaching Me, and you will see things change.

And I will move you forward into your spiritual destiny.

My Truth Changes Not

Sandy Brunson

There is a time for everything which I ask of you. Let Me teach you daily...what to do, what to say, what NOT to say, when to build and when to tear down. I am here to speak to you every day...words of comfort...words of correction...words of guidance...words of knowledge...words of wisdom.

Listen for My Voice and movement to know daily what to do and say, and you will speak with authority. Study My Word to know what I have said. Wait in silence for Me to come and reveal in your heart the truth of what I have written. I will speak. I will lead you and tell you what I am saying based on what I have said. Others will recognize that you have been with Me.

Always be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to wrath, for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God. Many today live on a short fuse and erupt in fear and anger and wrath over the least thing.

These things flow from a heart of bitterness and unforgiveness that many have not allowed me to cleanse. Yield your heart up to Me for cleansing daily. Be washed by My Word of Truth. In patience possess your soul that it may sing of My righteousness and demonstrate My truth. Listen.

Wait. Hear Me before you respond to any situation. Recall what I have said before you speak. I am saying what I have always said...My truth changes not.

Cling to Me. Hold fast to Me. Do not follow the crowd. Follow Me and listen carefully to what I am saying to you personally....and heed My Words. Bear witness to the truth.

My words to Pilate were were "I have come into the world that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the Truth hears My Voice." My words to the Jews were "He who is of God hears God's words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God."

I also spoke to them saying, "My sheep hear My voice and I know them, and they follow Me. Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of hear My Voice, listen to what I am saying, practice righteousness as a way of life. Keep the cloak of humility wrapped tightly about you. Do not take one step in haughtiness nor pride, or you will fall.

Humble yourself before Me and I will lift you up in My time and in the place I have prepared for you. I have need of prepare yourself in these ways before Me. These are the ways of My Spirit, and even as I do not change...neither do they.

Restoration of Kingdom Purpose

Yolanda Ballard

Present yourselves as a living sacrifice holy and pleasing unto the Lord. Present your body and your mind as a sacrifice for you are not your own. You were bought with the price of the precious blood of the Lamb of God. So remain faithful by examining your heart this day. Are you a keeper of the grace of God, or are you one that gives it away and gives honor to the will of God by reaching out to the lost? I want you to start afresh this day if not. I want you to seek My face for My will for your life. And I will show you the areas that you can change so that you can be more free in Me to go out and spread the Good News.

I don't want you to just knock on doors for I feel that is barging in on the privacy of others. But I want you to be sensitive to My leading, and I will show you the appointments I have set up for you. Yes, you will meet them on the street, at the park, at the shopping plaza. Anywhere I can set up an appointment to meet with the lost. And I will stir up the anointing and the gifts so you will have the knowledge to meet them where they are at. For yes, I will set up prophetic encounters, and you will reach the root of their problem immediately in a way where they will open up to My love, and I will embrace their heart and set them free. Yes, deliverance is the children's bread, but I also came to set the captives free from spiritual bondage. I came to bring life abundant.

So set your calendars straight. Get also your priorities straight to put My will first and not your own. If you haven't met up with the lost in a productive way. If you haven't led others into My kingdom. If the hours of your day don't even meet your own needs. Be ready for I AM bringing forth a change over. My time for your time. My appointment book for yours.

Break out of your routine. I will bless you with new ideas to enjoy your own life, and in the process you will be doing My work. This is the day to usher in the End time harvest, but you must be ready and willing to break away from the norm to set captives free. Remember your life is not your own. It is bought with the price of the Lamb. And for what, but to bring in the lost souls. For this is the purpose for which you were called.

My Freedom

Jane Larsen

Do not become so wrapped in the things of the world that they paralyze and choke you. Do not let these things master you, for they will sap your energy and your eyes will be closed to the truth of what I have for you. Do not let the weight of your problems sit on your shoulders, for see, today will last just a little while, and there is much before you.

I have come to set you free and you will be free indeed. The things of the world should not concern you, for have I not said that I am your provider, and that I will supply all your needs? Have I not made promises throughout the ages that have come to be? Why do you concern yourself with these things? The enemy will come to steal and destroy and to take your focus of Me. He will entice with things that are not of Me, that are not from My Kingdom. Do not look that way. That is not the way. The way is clear and pure and true. The way is one of truth and love and peace that will not weigh you down and will not burden you. There is a walk that is a spiritual walk that I have called you to, where you walk with Me and cast the ways of the world to the side. Leave them there. You are in this world but you are not of it. My voice was heard by you, keep following it. I will look after you. I will take care of all your needs, I will answer you, I will protect you. I have not brought you this far to let you go the way of the world.

Remember My promises and lay hold of them. I am with you, even unto the ends of the earth. I will sustain you. You will come through this time. Take your eyes off what burdens you and look upon Me and you will find rest.

What Past?

A. W. Tozer

I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins. --Isaiah 43:25

One of the old German devotional philosophers took the position that God loves to forgive big sins more than He does little sins because the bigger the sin, the more glory accrues to Him for his forgiveness. I remember the writer went on to say that not only does God forgive sins and enjoy doing it, but as soon as He has forgiven them, He forgets them and trusts the person just as if he or she had never sinned. I share his view that God not only forgives great sins as readily as little ones, but once He has forgiven them He starts anew right there and never brings up the old sins again....

When a person makes a mistake and has to be forgiven, the shadow may hang over him or her because it is hard for other people to forget. But when God forgives, He begins the new page right there, and then the devil runs up and says, "What about this person's past?" God replies: "What past? There is no past. We started out fresh when he came to Me and I forgave him!" Faith Beyond Reason, 112.

"Lord, this concept is so foreign to our human understanding and our human way of doing things. Your grace in forgiving--and forgetting--is beyond our comprehension. But I worship You for it today. Amen."
