The Flesh Versus the Spirit

by Mervin Sundbo

You have all likely heard the story of the two wolves, but since it contributes to what I want to write about, I will relate the story to you once again.

"One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, 'My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all. One is evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith." The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?' The Old Cherokee simply replied, 'the one you feed.' Galatians chapter 6 speaks of the evil wolf as the works of the flesh (sexual immorality, impurity of mind, sensuality, worship of false gods, witchcraft, hatred, quarrelling, jealousy, bad temper, rivalry, factions, party-spirit, drunkenness, orgies, and things like that) and the good wolf as the fruit of the Spirit (love, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, fidelity, tolerance and self control).

The battle spoken of here is as old as the history of man. Since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, the two wolves have done battle for the mastery of each individual - one evil, the other good. Paul spoke of this conflict in Romans chapter 7. "For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do" (vs. 19). After a long discourse on this dilemma of the two warring factions within him, Paul asks this question in verse 24, "O wretched man that I am! Who can deliver me from the body of this death?" And he comes to this conclusion in verse 25, "I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord." In other words, there is only one answer to the question of who can deliver him from  "the body of this death" or from the flesh wherein "dwelleth no good thing" (v.18). The answer is Jesus Christ our Lord. If we are honest with ourselves, we all have experienced and are to some extent experiencing what Paul was talking about here. The answer for us is the same as it was for Paul. Paul looked for the same full salvation that you and I look for. "Who can deliver us from the clutches of this death?" The answer is unmistakable. The answer reverberates thoughout the pages of God's holy word. There is no other salvation than what God has provided through His Son, Jesus Christ. He is the answer. The songwriter put it this way:

Christ Is the Answer

Christ is the answer to all my longing.
Christ is the answer to all my needs.
Saviour, Baptizer, The Great Physician-
O hallelujah! He's all I need.

When sin entered into the creation through the fall of man, we see through the account in Genesis 3 that presumably not very much time lapsed between the deception, the disobedient act and the results of this act. "So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened and they knew that they were naked" (Gen 3:6&7). There are several things to note about this scripture, but first of all, note that deception is often mixed with truth. Much more could be said about deception, but in passing let us simply say that the counterfeit is usually very close to the real, as in indicated by the following scripture, "For there shall arise false christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect (God's chosen people)" (Matt. 24:24). A deceiver is skilled at planting the seed of doubt and inserting elements of truth into the deception. "Then the serpent said to the woman. 'You shall not surely die (a lie). For God knows that in the day you eat it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil'" (Gen. 3:4). Here we see an outright lie (You will not surely die") and then a softening of the lie and an appeal to pride (You will be like God, knowing good and evil"). Secondly, guilt or conviction is a normal and logical result of a sinful act. Then the eyes of both of them (Adam and Eve) were opened, and they know that they were naked... and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord" (Gen. 7&8). In the pre-sinful state, Adam and Eve were naked but they were not ashamed. In the post-sinful state, they were ashamed of their nakedness, made coverings for themselves and hid from the presence of the Lord. This is a sad picture of the consequences of sin. There is first a feeling of shame or conviction and then a reaction to that by covering or hiding the sinful behavior.

From the time of man's fall until this very day, the curse of sin is upon the world and none of it is hid from God's all knowing eyes. In John 2:15-17, we see the pervasive nature of a sinful world. "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh (sinful sensual pleasure), the lust of the eyes (covetousness, greed or materialism), and the pride of life (pride in one's accomplishments or possessions), is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the word is passing away, and the host of it: but he who does the will of God abides forever." Thankfully God has provided a way to deal with sin, not by postponng it as with animal sacrifices, under the law, but a way with dealing with it once and for all, through the death and resurrection of His only begotten Son Jesus Christ.

I mentioned earlier that it would seem from what we read in Genesis that man's fall from his idyllic state to the level of sinful degradation did not take very long and as a result of that disobedient act, all of mankind is conceived in sin and shapen in iniquity (Psalm 51:5). The wonder of it all, however, is that in God's plan of redemptive love, He makes it possible for every repentant heart to move from degeneration to regeneration in a very short period of time. The born-again experience is instantaneous as witnessed by the accout of the criminal who was crucified at the same time as Christ. "Then he (the criminal) said to Jesus. 'Lord remember me when You come into Your Kingdom." And Jesus said unto him, "Assuredly, I say unto you, today you shall be with Me in paradise'" (Luke 23:42&43).

I began with the story of the two wolves and it is the evil wolf that we want completely eradicated or starved from having any influence in our lives and this only comes by the transforming power of the Holy Spirit working in obedient and submissive hearts. There is a difference between the instant nature of salvation, which is an absolute must, and the complete transformation that God wants to bring to His people. The first step is essential, for without it there can be no transformation from the mind of man to the mind of Christ.

In the Nelson Study Bible, NKJV, there is an interesting note, which I will quote: "The Greek metamorphoo means 'to change form, 'as does the English derivative metamorphis. In the New Testament, this word is used to describe an inward renewal of our minds through which our inner spirit is changed into the likeness of Christ. Paul told the Roman believers: 'Be transformed by the renewing of your minds' (Rom. 12:2). As our Christian life progresses, we should gradually notice that our thought life is being changed from Christlessness to Christlikeness. Transformation does not happen overnight. Our regeneration is instantaneous, but our transformation is continous. We are conformed to Christ's image gradually as we spend time in intimate fellowhsip with Him."

I was reading frm a daily devotionaal titled "Day by Day" by J.B. Phillips in which he expresses the concept that God is never in a hurry. This is what he says, "If there is one thing which should be quite plain to those who accept the revelation of God in nature, and the Bible, it is that He is never in a hurry. Long preparation, careful planning, and slow growth, would seem to be leading characteristics of spiritual life.... It is refreshing and salutary, to study the poise and quietness of Christ. He was never in a hurry, never impressed by numbers, never a slave of the clock. He was acting, He said, as He observed God to act. He was never in a hurry" (pp178 & 179).

The journey that we have embarked upon is not yet complete. The destination is before us and we must never lose focus. We must never lose heart. As with any journey, there will be obstacles on the way. There may be potholes to watch out for, road construction may slow us down, the weather may not always be conducive to travel, travel weariness my set in and there may be even be the odd unavoidable detour. However the destination remains the same. The spiritual journey started with salvation and it will end with transformation. It began in spiritual infancy and it will end in spiritual maturity. Just as the complete man fell through the deception of the enemy, so the complete man will be restored through the redemptive work of Christ! The transformation that we look for with eager anticipation is a changed nature, different in quality from the old sinful nature. The new nature is the nature of Christ! "And be renewed in the spirit of your mnind: and that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteouness and true holiness" (Eph. $:23 &24, KJV). Hebrews 9:28 from the Phillips translation speaks of this full salvation in this way, "Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many and after that, to those that look for Him, He will appear the second time, not this time to deal with sin, but to bring to full salvation those who eagerly await Him."

We have a choice. We can be carnally minded or we can be piritually minded. The former is death: the latter ls life. In Deut. 30:19, God says to Israel, "I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that thou and thy seed may live." While the extent of sin appears to be pervasive historically and in our modern society, the scripture in Romas 5:20 & 21 puts it all in perspective with these words, "Now we find that the Law keeps slipping into the picture to point the vast extent of sin. Yet, though sin us shown to be wide and deep, thank God His grace is wider and deeper still! The whole outlook changes - sin used to be the master of men and in the end handed them over to death: now grace is the ruling factor, with righteousness as its purpose and its end the bringing of men to the eternal life of God through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Phillips). The songwriter penned these words and they are as true today a they were when they were written:

Transformed by grace divine,
the glory shall be Thine:
To Thy most holy will, O Lord,
we now our all resign.

Acts of Love

By Chris Hedges

Love, the deepest human commitment, the force that defies empirical examination and yet is the defining and most glorious element in human life, the love between two people, between children and parents, between friends, between partners, reminds us of why we have been created for our brief sojourns on the planet. Those who cannot love—and I have seen these deformed human beings in the wars and conflicts I covered—are spiritually and emotionally dead. They affirm themselves through destruction, first of others and then, finally, of themselves. Those incapable of love never live.

“Hell,’ Dostoevsky wrote, “is the inability to love.’

And yet, so much is written and said about love that at once diminishes its grandeur and trivializes its meaning. Dr. James Luther Adams, my ethics professor at Harvard Divinity School, cautioned all of us about preaching on love, reminding us that any examination of love had to include, as Erich Fromm pointed out in “Selfishness and Self-Love,’ the unmasking of pseudo-love.

God is a verb rather than a noun. God is a process rather than an entity. There is some biblical justification for this. God, after all, answered Moses´ request for revelation with the words, “I AM WHO I AM.’ This phrase is probably more accurately translated “I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE.’ God seems to be saying to Moses that the reality of the divine is an experience. God comes to us in the profound flashes of insight that cut through the darkness, in the hope that permits human beings to cope with inevitable despair and suffering, in the healing solidarity of kindness, compassion and self-sacrifice, especially when this compassion allows us to reach out to others, and not only others like us, but those defined by our communities as strangers, as outcasts. “I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE.’ This reality, the reality of the eternal, must be grounded in that which we cannot touch, see or define, in mystery, in a kind of faith in the ultimate worth of compassion, even when the reality of the world around us seems to belittle compassion as futile.

“The courage to be is rooted in the God who appears when God has disappeared in the anxiety of doubt,’ wrote Paul Tillich.

Aristotle said that only two living entities are capable of solitude and complete separateness: God and beast. The most acute form of human suffering is loneliness. The isolated human individual can never be fully human. And for those cut off from others, for those alienated from the world around them, the false covenants of race, nationalism, the glorious cause, class and gender compete, with great seduction, against the covenant of love. These sham covenants—and we see them dangled before us daily—are based on exclusion and hatred rather than universality. These sham covenants do not call us to humility and compassion, to an acknowledgement of our own imperfections, but to a form of self-exaltation disguised as love. Those most able to defy these sham covenants are those who are grounded in love, those who find their meaning and worth in intimate relationships that cut through the loneliness and isolation of the human condition.

There are few sanctuaries in war. Couples in love provide one. And it was to such couples that I consistently retreated. These couples repeatedly acted to save those branded as the enemy—Muslims trapped in Serb enclaves in Bosnia or dissidents hunted by the death squads in El Salvador. These rescuers did not act as individuals. Nechama Tec documented this peculiar reality when she studied Polish rescuers of Jews during World War II. Tec did not find any particular character traits or histories that led people to risk their lives for others, often for people they did not know, but she did find they almost always acted because their relationship explained to them the world around them. Love kept them grounded. These couples were not able to halt the destruction and violence around them. They were powerless. They could and often did themselves become victims. But it was with them, seated in a concrete hovel in a refugee camp in Gaza or around a wood stove on a winter night in the hills outside Sarajevo, that I found sanity and peace, that I was reminded of what it means to be human. It seemed it was only in such homes that I ever truly slept during war.

Love, when it is deep and sustained by two individuals, includes self-giving—often tremendous self-sacrifice—as well as desire. For the covenant of love recognizes both the fragility and sanctity of all human beings. It recognizes itself in the other. And it alone can save us, especially from ourselves.

Sigmund Freud divided the forces in human nature between the Eros instinct, the impulse within us that propels us to become close to others, to preserve and conserve, and the Thanatos, or death instinct, the impulse that works toward the annihilation of all living things, including ourselves. For Freud these forces were in eternal conflict. All human history, he argued, is a tug of war between these two instincts.

“The meaning of the evolution of civilization is no longer obscure to us,’ Freud wrote in “Civilization and Its Discontents.’ “It must present the struggle between Eros and Death, between the instinct of life and instinct of destruction, as it works itself out in the human species. This struggle is what all life essentially consists of.’

We are tempted, indeed in a consumer culture encouraged, to reduce life to a simple search for happiness. Happiness, however, withers if there is no meaning. The other temptation is to disavow the search for happiness in order to be faithful to that which provides meaning. But to live only for meaning—indifferent to all happiness—makes us fanatic, self-righteous and cold. It leaves us cut off from our own humanity and the humanity of others. We must hope for grace, for our lives to be sustained by moments of meaning and happiness, both equally worthy of human communion. And it is this grace, this love, which in our darkest moments allows us to endure.

Viktor Frankl in “Man´s Search for Meaning’ grappled with Eros and Thanatos in the Auschwitz death camp. He recalled being on a work detail, freezing in the blast of the Polish winter, when he began to think about his wife, who had already been gassed by the Nazis although he did not know it at the time.

“A thought transfixed me,’ he wrote, “for the first time in my life I saw the truth as it is set down by so many poets, proclaimed as the final wisdom by so many thinkers. The truth—that love is the ultimate and the highest goal to which man can aspire. Then I grasped the meaning of the greatest secret that human poetry and human thought and belief have to impart. The salvation of man is through love and in love.’

Love is an action, a difference we try to make in the world.

“We love our enemy when we love his or her ultimate meaning,’ professor Adams told us. “We may have to struggle against what the enemy stands for; we may not feel a personal affinity or passion for him. Yet we are commanded for this person´s sake and for our own and for the sake of the destiny of creation, to love that which should unite us.’

To love that which should unite us requires us to believe there is something that connects us all, to know that at some level all of us love and want to be loved, to base all our actions on the sacred covenant of love, to know that love is an act of will, to refuse to exclude others because of personal difference or race or language or ethnicity or religion. It is easier to be indifferent. It is tempting to hate. Hate propels us to the lust for power, for control, to the Hobbesian nightmare of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. Hate is what people do when they are distressed, as many Americans are now, by uncertainty and fear. If you hate others they will soon hate or fear you. They will reject you. Your behavior assures it. And through hate you become sucked into the sham covenants of the nation, the tribe, and you begin to speak in the language of violence, the language of death.

Love is not selflessness. It is the giving of one´s best self, giving one´s highest self unto the world. It is finding true selfhood. Selflessness is martyrdom, dying for a cause. Selfhood is living for a cause. It is choosing to create good in the world. To love another as one loves oneself is to love the universal self that unites us all. If our body dies, it is the love that we have lived that will remain—what the religious understand as the soul—as the irreducible essence of life. It is the small, inconspicuous things we do that reveal the pity and beauty and ultimate power and mystery of human existence.

Vasily Grossman wrote in his masterpiece “Life and Fate’:

    My faith has been tempered in Hell. My faith has emerged from the flames of the crematoria, from the concrete of the gas chamber. I have seen that it is not man who is impotent in the struggle against evil, but the power of evil that is impotent in the struggle against man. The powerlessness of kindness, of senseless kindness, is the secret of its immortality. It can never be conquered. The more stupid, the more senseless, the more helpless it may seem, the vaster it is. Evil is impotent before it. The prophets, religious leaders, reformers, social and political leaders are impotent before it. This dumb, blind love is man´s meaning. Human history is not the battle of good struggling to overcome evil. It is a battle fought by a great evil struggling to crush a small kernel of human kindness. But if what is human in human beings has not been destroyed even now, then evil will never conquer.

To survive as a human being is possible only through love. And, when Thanatos is ascendant, the instinct must be to reach out to those we love, to see in them all the divinity, pity and pathos of the human. And to recognize love in the lives of others, even those with whom we are in conflict—love that is like our own. It does not mean we will avoid suffering or death. It does not mean that we as distinct individuals will survive. But love, in its mystery, has its own power. It alone gives us meaning that endures. It alone allows us to embrace and cherish life. Love has the power both to resist in our nature what we know we must resist and to affirm what we know we must affirm.

The Ones Upon The Mountains

Rain Allen

For they shall come down and gather, they shall come down from the mountains top to the valleys. They shall gather together and come forth in great power and glory. For they will walk in the fullness of the glory of God. For they hear the voice of the Lord their God and no other. For they bow their knee to the Lord their God and no other. They have a pure heart and clean hands. For there is the day coming when the alignment of My chosen ones will come down from the mountain tops and the word will quake. A great quake will cover the entire face of the world. There has been nothing like it before, nor shall there be thereafter. For the great day of the Lord is coming and I shall come with great vengeance and reckoning. For My children have wailed and have been mourning and they have waited for this day to come. For I say the time in nearer than before. The time is close and My vessels are being poured upon the world. The ones who come down shall feed the people, they shall call down rain and it will rain. They shall call down fire and there will be fire. They shall say life and the dead shall rise. They shall say, be straight and the crooked will be straight. I tell you, they are ones who will shatter, who will breakthrough, and who bring down the power of God.

My children have not seen this power during such time, for they have been blinded to the power of the Lord. For their minds have become masked by the things of this world and so they no longer believe. Many have said surely this power has faded with the apostles and prophets of old. But I say it has not.. And I say that only those who believe and who have heard My voice will see the latter rain and glory of God. For there comes a veil that will fall upon the minds of those of the world. And the covering that was upon Israel shall be lifted and the covering shall be upon the men of the world. [HALLELUJAH!-Dee]Their hearts shall become hardened to the truth of the Lord and to the love of the Lord.

I tell you there are many among you who have been playing with the power and Word of the Lord your God and they shall be taken down and they will be removed. Their name shall be no more, for they shall be as dust in the wind. I tell you they have turned My house into a house of games and I shall no longer stand by. For they have said surely God is here and they have put on displays of idol worship and they have profaned what what was given to them. Do not allow yourselves to be deceived anymore. Do no accept everyone who says, thus says the Lord. Do not let every teaching of the man who stands before you, to come in and pollute you. For I say come back to the Word of God, come back and sit at the feet of the Lord your God. For I tell you oil and water do not mix and so it shall be among those who have profaned the Word of the Lord.

There have been many snake charmers among my houses. For they allowed themselves to be aligned with Lucifer himself. For they were once enlightened with the true knowledge of the Word of God and they have traded it for the profane things of the world. They have hocked My glory for that of deceit and power of evil spirits and fowl beasts. For the snake charmer says come and I shall play a tune and watch what I can do, watch what I can conjure up. For you shall not want to see what they shall conjure up, for it shall soon consume them entirely.

For there have been many snakes in my houses, slithering and hissings among my children, lying with deceitful practices, and choking their very lives away. For I shall stand by no longer. For those who hear the voice of the Lord, I say come out, come out from among the snake charmers deception. Come out from the profane house and back into the Light. For judgement shall befall all who are among her. It shall fall fast and heavy.

There has been much idol worship among My children and I say put such practices away. You say, but Lord I have followed only you.. But who have you put first before Me? What things have you chased after in this world? Where does your heart lie? For I tell you no idol shall be able to save you from what is to come.

Many have cried out revival, but do you not know My judgement must come first? Do you not know that I will come and shake what can be shaken? Do you not know that fire must come to burn away the chaff and dross? Do you know what you are asking? For I say I will come, but do not be surprised as what is to come. Do not say what is this thing that has come upon me? What is this strange trial that has been sent against me? For I say the glory of God must come, but it will come upon My pure ones. Upon those who have withstood the testing, those who have withstood what was purged and who have come forth as chosen ones, noble ones- sons of God.

For I tell you this is the hour when the true sons of God will rise forth in greater glory. This is the time for them to come into their authority and inheritance. For I tell you all of the kingdom of darkness has dreaded this day. For the hour of torment upon My sons is over and the hour of torment upon the sons of darkness shall begin. The tormentor shall be tormented.

Behold you are My battle axe and I shall use you to conquer nations. For I shall use you to beat the mountains down before the sons of man. For the key is in the door and it is being unlocked now. The doors are being opened up before you. Maps are falling, battle plans are falling, mantles are falling, armor is falling, the riches of heaven is falling.

What has held you back will be given you in this hour. What was broken or missing shall be given. Bodies are being restored. What ever is needed My child, shall be given. Nothing broken nothing missing. You shall walk in complete restoration and victory for the days ahead. Nothing by no means shall hold you back from your assignments I have given you. Come now and receive in faith for what is being poured out upon you. Come now and renew your mind. Come now and receive a new heart. Come now and receive new love. Come in now, for the road ahead is long, but you will not be outwitted, you shall over take your enemy, one by one, they shall fall. One by one, each head shall fall. For it is your hour and your day My child. Come now and take what I have given you. The victory belongs to the Lord your God and I have called you in as victors. You are the viceroy of the Lord your God and the inheritance is yours for the taking. Use this authority with a pure heart and with pure hands. Walk in great and unrelenting love. Come and gather in as I have called you. Be one, as I have made you. The day of division is over. Come in to Me. Come in.

"All who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved."/ (Acts 2:44-47).

We´ve held a ‘community weekend´ – why? Because growing community is the number one priority for these times. We´ve prayed before now for more than 1000 people in New Creation Christian Community. Claim it as our inheritance (Mark 10:30). We´ve sung ‘For our inheritance give us the lost´ – now let´s see it happen!

"By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be My disciples." (John 15:8).

  Is your household fruitful? Does your community carry God´s blessing? Sometimes buildings or places carry curses from the past. Land can be cursed and become unfruitful (Genesis 3:17-18, Hebrews 6:7-8).

  Why not pray round the rooms of your community house? Repent, bring cleansing and anointing, and break the curse of unfruitfulness. Like Hezekiah, get rid of that which contaminates us in ourselves and in our buildings, then bring cleansing and consecration, fresh commitment to the Lord (2Chronicles 29). Then the Lord can ‘add many to your number´.

The TIME is NOW.....

Marilyn P Stroud

Come unto me, says the Lord, come and meet with me on my Holy Mountain. Let us commune says the Lord. The table of my feast is all but ready and the time of celebration is about to commence. Separate yourselves and come, come out from amongst them says the Lord and come unto me for I AM says the Lord, your Jehovah Jireh. From your bellies shall flow rivers of living water as a fountain flowing forth.

My love for you is as an all consuming fire and I desire to be with You, for I will live within you and fulfill you. I will use you as a beacon, a lighthouse, that will cause the lost to see in you, My Peace, My Joy and My Love. I will use you, to bring healing to their hearts, I will use you, by My Spirit, to reveal things that I alone would know. That by My Spirit they will know that that which you shall utter shall be of Me and Me alone.

I shall have that you shall rise up as the eagles, that you shall run and not grow weary and that you shall walk and not faint. As so many of my prophets have already revealed I will draw you deeper into myself and that through my ready volunteers who have surrendered their will to MINE I will begin the time of restoration, revelation so that my blessing of recompense shall be upon them. For to them shall I prosper, heal and restore all that the canker worm has devoured. I shall cause them to renewed and restored.  

There are those amongst mine elect that I AM have appointed as watchmen and to you I would say that the time is NOW that I would have you to gather together to pray for MY people. My heart is torn apart when I see their whoredom, says the Lord. How far they have separated themselves from the path that I laid before them from the days of Abraham. From before Moses I set them apart for myself, I led them out of the hands of their enemies and yet they have elected to know me not. Take My people to your hearts and pray for them, pray that they shall see the error of their ways and REPENT as even now their enemies are gathering to the North, they are being cut off to the South. To the West they are being used as bargaining chips and to the East there are plots afoot to cut them off. Weapons of warfare are not only being prepared but are now ready and even now Rome still desires to conquer and divide My Holy Mountain, the City of the Most High God. The world is slowly being blinded and to those that are prepared to stand, BE READY says the Lord. For I shall call you in a moment to stand and speak forth. Declare the Word for it is TRUTH and no other can compare.  

Therefore, says the Lord, be prepared for the outpouring of My Spirit on mine elect. There are those that shall be used of me to spread the word of Faith, Restoration and Healing. There are some that shall be used of Me by My Spirit to Sing Praises to My Name and Worship ME in Spirit and in Truth -they shall sing Hallelujah to My Name. Others, shall take up their posts as the Watchmen over MY Holy Land. Some shall be made ready to speak MY Truth. This is My Body, My Bride that shall soon be fully dressed and made beautiful.

Nonetheless, says the Lord, there is still much that must be done and in this time I would that My Children continue in the way of obedience; obedience to ME and none other that my TRUTH may continue to be revealed.

Thus saith the Lord..........
