…Beloved,..Surely I have purposed but man has despised,..I have set out My plans but many have resisted and rejected them,..Have I not said that My Ways are not your ways and My thoughts are not your thoughts,..For My Ways and thoughts are higher than yours,..Listen!..Take heed to My Words,..I am not a God that changes His mind or evolves with the times,..I AM UNCHANGING,..I am the same yesterday, today and forever,..



…Soon My patience and My Understanding will run out and those that have stood against Me will be swiftly and severely dealt with,..My Mercy proceeds Justice,..but when the bowls of iniquity are full,..Suddenly and without warning the scales will tip and the gavel of My Justice will fall,..and the rebellious and stiff necked will be broken and will never recover,…



..So guard your heart,..Do not lean on your own understanding,..Do not jeer and mock at My Timing or question My Ways,..for You do not see the beginning from the end,..and the end from the beginning, I do, only see what is right in front of you,..and so your knowledge is limited and your understanding is lacking,…



…Watch,..For My Governing hand is always moving,..shifting and rearranging,..and resetting things in perfect order to ensure and guarantee that all things,..all things, together for the good of those that Love Me,..So do not think or accuse Me of being deaf to your Call or distant when you draw close,…I tell you now,..Live by faith and not by your feelings that are ever fleeting,..fickle and constantly unpredictable,…



…But Cast down vain imaginations and cast off questionings that bring doubt,..unbelief and double mindedness,..For I am an ever present Help in times of trouble,…My Strong right hand is always outstretched towards you to rescue and redeem,..revive and restore your life,..



…Beloved,..Be quick to repent of your pride and relinquish the need to be in control,..Why make Me Wait and delay My divine deliverance and Wonder Working power to perform miracles in the midst of you,..because you have chosen to rather explore and exhaust all other man made ideas and quick fix solutions?..,When will you let go of human intellect and understanding,..and Look to Me alone,..When will you abandon your Will in exchange for My Will and My Way,…for surely I tell you as soon as you let go and Trust Me, will see that I have already  made provision like the ram that was caught in the thicket,…there is great reward in store for those that will walk by faith and in radical obedience to My Word,..



…My Redeemed Ones,..Be of good Courage and Pay attention to My Word,..Do not think I am unmindful of the fears,..the frailties and the weaknesses of the human heart,…but Know that I am a God of Love,..and discipline,..Righteousness and Holiness,..



…Fools ignore instruction and are therefore Ignorant and blind and soon fall into a pit,..but the Wise listen and obey and soon prosper and live in peace, Come close,..for I am a Consuming Fire,..Draw near to Me and let the Burning Fires of My Glory ignite and divinely energize you,..for My fire will empower you to lay claim to all My Promises that are yours through Inheritance,..Let us Reign together in My Kingdom for these are indeed Glory filled days,..



…So Choose Me this day,…and the Oil will never run dry,..but you will be filled,..fueled and burning brightly,..and I shall make you a Sign and a Living Witness in the earth of My Goodness and extraordinary Grace and Love to all that see you,…

An obedient heart is a life that has bowed itself to Christ. 




All the SELF SEEKERS shall be exposed that walks in disobedience and rebellion against God's commandment given in John 15, to lay ourselves down in the way of the cross so His harvest might be reaped, as we become His SOWN SEEDS of love -  Matthew 13:24  Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:




 25  But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

 26  But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

 27  So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

 28  He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

 29  But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

 30  Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. 





Those who live in rebellion against Christ shall go through the fires 



 of God's tribulation shakings and judgments  -  Isaiah 24



 1  Behold, Yahweh maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.

 2  And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury so with the giver of usury to him.

 3  The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for YHWH hath spoken this word.

 4  The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.

 5  The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.

 6  Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

 7  The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh.

 8  The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth.

 9  They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it.

 10  The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in.

 11  There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.

 12  In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction.

 13  When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done.

 14  They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of Yahweh, they shall cry aloud from the sea.

 15  Wherefore glorify ye Yahweh in the fires, even the name of Yahweh Elohim of Israel in the isles of the sea.

 16  From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.

 17  Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.

 18  And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.

 19  The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.

 20  The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.

 21  And it shall come to pass in that day, that YHWH shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.

 22  And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.

 23  Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when Yahweh of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before His ancients gloriously.

Colossians 1

9  For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

 10  That ye might walk worthy of the Master unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of Elohim;

 11  Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

 12  Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

 13  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son:

 14  In whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
