God is so good!! My leg is broken in 2 places but it could have been sooo much worse. I'm only able to sit at the computer for a few minutes. I am thankful for God keeping His hand on me and thankful to all of you for prayers!
God bless you all,
God bless you all,
I have been wrestling in my spirit to understand a spirit I have sensed for quite a while, but the spirit seems to be so relaxing that it seemed good! Many have been hurt and wounded by abuses, and stress is a big problem in our nation.
But still, I sensed something not right. And the Lord gave me the name today for it and it is "the spirit of slumber." For many, "all is well in the world, there are no problems, just trust the Lord, because He is going easy on you. He loves you sooo much!"
And He does! And it's true that stress is not good, and unnecessary provocations are not good, and a good self esteem is good, etc, etc, etc! But along with this message is the spirit of slumber, so you will not be awake when He comes! He will visit many times before He takes you away. He is a God who prepares...
People are taking these doses of "medicine" like a spiritual tranquilizer. Don't make waves, go with the flow, and there is a lot of good truth in the messages, but what is happening to so many is a dulling and a numbing that sedates.
People are not arising with new vision or purpose, they are not "hastening the day of the Lord." They aren't getting things that provoke them to jealousy for Him, but they are getting into a spirit of waiting that keeps them "out of trouble" and it numbs them to every day truth!
Some things you have to learn to work with. Even the Bible says that we have to rightly divide the words of truth. It is good not to be overbearing or over anxious. It is good to have a steady hand.
But this "chillaxing", as we say now, is making many dull and causing them to pursue "other" ways and not the Lord! This spirit can creep up on you. It's like eating only sweets and temporarily postponing meals that you need to not only satisfy but to fortify.
We can start "putting off" Godly things and slack off in pursuing Him! There is a self discipline that we all need, that we can't get from another person if we are to go on and mature in Him and stand. Today we have so many extremes and supersizing, that a false bar can be there in the every day!
I see this in my own life sometimes and I think why do I feel so dull and sedate and often you think it's just you, but then I look and see this is something widespread. I see the MANY posts of others and they are just coasting.
A number of years ago Randy Demain called me, and we had never met. I had only then began hearing about his ministry, but I didn't know him. But he had a dream and in the dream, he was told to call me. He had never heard of me at all, and so he sought me out and somehow got my email address and shared the dream.
I can't remember all the details of it at the moment, but this part is coming back to me today. In the dream there was an angel jumping up and down on a bed. At first you think of a child's delight to do that, at least I did. But as I pressed into the Spirit, I realized that the angels were coming to the Church and jumping up and down on the bed to say, "Wake up! Wake up!"
We are a slumbering Church and when in our "peace and safety" and least expect it, trouble comes! Not that long ago again, I prophetically sensed God's displeasure with the American Church. People were talking about justice and right and wrong, but were not pursuing it! Strength was to just be in the hands of the few, not the many. Wrong!
I felt the Lord's correction drawing near, and so often we pray for mercy and He grants it. But this presence of correction was coming in increasing intensity and I really sensed that something dramatic could take place and petitioned the Lord again for His mercy as what I sensed was "not good" for so many people.
When we have blessings and truth and we don't share it, when we have the keys of Life and don't live it and prevent, even by neglect, others from entering in, we incur the wrath that even Jesus expressed was coming when He said "no rock would be upon another" because it was going to be leveled.
In "seeing" this in the Spirit, I petitioned Him for mercy and help again, because I saw His Fist raised for rebuke. I petitioned for the "wallop" to be in parts because one big wallop can daze us to a point that the enemy can come in and take serious advantage of our fallen weakness. I sensed in the Spirit felt reply that He would divide it into three.
These are things that will rebuke our nation and they will not be mild things but will affect many. God knows how to deal with the soul. But even in judgment, there is hope if we turn our hearts again to seek the Lord and do His will.
Many today do not even go to Sunday School, and Christian society has expected the youth (that are now young adults) to just "know" these things. They wonder why there is so much disrespect and affection for death. Well, the reason is that for them it is the greater power! What else do they know to believe???
If there is no correct bone structure, how do you build a body, even if you have the parts? God is visiting people, but without understanding, so much is wasted and wrong parts or non fitting parts are inserted and the structure becomes "something else"! Certainly it is not functional.
We are not pursing the Lord, and we are not living for the Lord or standing up for His ways in our society and sometimes not even in our churches. We can look at how our government operates to see the real strengh (or lack thereof) in our land!
No, instead we are being sedated, and drugs can have an effect on you. The Church is asleep, and the evil lion is crouching, looking for whom he may devour and is expecting a feast from so many different angles. Let us shake off that sleepiness - and it's hard to do when we have taken the "potions" - and find that well spring of Life again within us.
"What sin? There is no sin! Jesus died to take care of it all, so no worries, mate! Just live your life and enjoy it!" And many are, without the fear and admonitions of the Lord. It is the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed.
Jesus loves you, for real!
And I have a word for someone, God forgave you, for real! There are circumstances in this world that are beyond your control. Therefore you will not be blamed for the things that are out of your control. Be free!
Find the path that is for YOUR life! It is not always what other people say it is. My path, says the Lord, is not always seen with natural eyes. No, you can feel boxed in and think that things will always be the same, but they aren't!
Look for the hidden places. Navigation with Me is in the Spirit. Seek Me and you will find Me! Not a certain place, thing or state of "being." Not status or wealth or fame. All those things are in Me, and you want them IN ME, but I decide and determine what is best for your life.
I am not denying you, I am priming you for the Best! If you keep your mind stayed on Me, you will come out on the other side of My Blessing, and I want to give you all that you can contain!
Learn to serve Me by serving My Creation. Say prayers for other's well being and you will be storing a rich depository of blessings that you can draw on later. You may need them for what I offer you later. I am an unending God, and so to know Me means that you must be willing to explore.
If you learn My Spirit and the ways of My Spirit, you will discover much! Like the seasons, I can change my colors but steadfast, I AM.
If you trust in My Life, you will begin to understand even the seasons of change. And even other places have different seasons! Not everything is conducive for one season. Not every plant will grow in one climate.
Learn to please Me, and it will oil the hinges of My doors for revelation that I want to open for you.
If you learn to think more like I think, says the Lord, then more are the worlds that can open up for you!
I am closing up holes, left by religious ideas and wrong thinking. You have been drinking from the water and you drinking from the well but as quick as you drink, it leaks out again, I Am saying that it is time to fix the broken cistern, the year of the broken cistern is over and done for all who will practice following me closely and are determined to do My Word. This total devotion will cause you to once again put me first, making me truly the one and only God. I Am closing up all the cracks, and all the holes where the water has been leaking out. You are supposed to be a wellspring of life wherever I send you but because of the small things that have been eating away at your faith you have been a broken cistern. Every time you drink from the fountain of life you get dry quick, because you allow other things to suck the flow out. Now, because you have been crying out to be made whole, I Am doing just that. I Am filling every void, every empty space, every crack, every hole. I Am causing those who are full to keep on until they overflow. And when it is time to pour out, you will pour out at the right season at the right time, it will be a fresh anointing. There will be no more holes and cracks, for you will develop the heart to attend to those "little foxes" quick and will not let them stay until those foxes eat holes in your stand. I will align Myself and work with you by closing every avenue that the enemy has been using in the past. This is a new day, this is a new dawning says the Lord, a shifting has happened on the inside of you to cause a boost into acceleration, and it is time to celebrate what I Am doing. We are closing up those cracks, what the enemy has been using in the past is over with, now you will flow with great force and all dead areas in your life will taste the fresh waters that are springing up in you. The enemy can not find that place anymore. You will be completely whole and sound, just what you have asked for. This is the season for My people to be well and experience wholeness, spirit, soul and body. I have made you whole and you will recognize quickly when the breaking tries to come and you will cause it to be stopped by your prayers, by your hunger, and by your thirst. Coming over and over again to that well that never runs dry, and every time you drink, it will be fresh says the Lord, fresh anointing, fresh understanding, and fresh revelation. This is the season to rejoice and celebrate in the great things that we will do together.
"And the Lord will continually guide you, and satisfy your soul in scorched and dry places, and give strength to your bones; and you will be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water whose waters do not fail" (Is. 58:11).
"For My people have committed two evils: They have abandoned (rejected) Me, The fountain of living water, and they have carved out their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water."(Jer. 2:13)
"The [Holy] Spirit and the bride (the church, believers) say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take and drink the water of life without cost." (Rev. 22:17)
"He who believes in Me [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Me], as the Scripture has said, ‘From his innermost being will flow continually rivers of living water." (John 7:38)
