Tonight I’m crying out on behalf of everyone in the world who is hurting. Everyone who has no idea of how precious they really are in your sight. For the dear souls that Jesus bought back with His Precious Blood on The Cross at Calvary, who have no idea that they are made in The Image of The LORD God Almighty. Lord, it is written in Your Holy Word,
Psalm 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Psalm 34:18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
God, we come to you brokenhearted tonight and just lay it all on the Altar. You have shown me today God that there is a pain so heavy we cannot bear it and are not able to process it. Especially at a very young age. Trauma. It is my minuscule understanding that there are places someplace inside of our being or our mind where these particular events are hidden away so that we can function.
I do not believe as some do that these are alters, but places of refuge that the demons take advantage of when they have ground to torment us. Your Grace is Truly Amazing, Lord God. The peak I’ve gotten of Your heart brings me to tears. You are so Beautiful. I love you. You know I want to love you with ALL of my heart. This is why you have exposed the brokenness in me. What the world calls Bipolar Disorder or Multiple Personality disorder is just a term in Satan’s Kingdom of Pharmaceuticals and money to deal with the problem at hand. The suffering is all too real for too many. Tonight I plead on behalf of the whole world for an awakening and revelation because You said in Your Word,
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
The Churches today are not teaching The FULL GOSPEL, Lord. They cut Jesus off in Mark Chapter 16 at verse 16 (when He was STILL TALKING) in Your Description of The Great Commission to ALL Believers-NOT just the people back then. So much false doctrine and craziness going on today. Not many are walking in Power, signs and miracles as you gave us the Authority to do so, with Your Precious Holy Spirit living inside of us.
Mark 16:15-20 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
The Church is unaware of Her Identity today, Lord.
The reality is found in Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
If we as The Body of Christ knew Whose and Who we are, we would truly be walking in power and love with signs and wonders following our witness and preaching. Perhaps the world, or at least some of the world would come to saving faith in Jesus. Our identity is in Christ, we are not ourselves anymore after getting saved. So, tonight, we cry, ABBA, Father! Please wake up Your People and let them know just how much they are worth and how You Love them! Let’s reach the entire world with our testimonies for your Glory and the saving of souls!
God, give us the healing and deliverance we need to feel your love and overcome the pain we have acquired over the years. You will bind our wounds and wipe away our tears…oh, how you really do love us. In Jesus Name, Thank you, Amen.
Brothers and Sisters, let’s go back The Cross and remember our First Love. Let us remember WHY we started this journey. I know so many of you feel like quitting right now or maybe just don’t see a way out, but know this:
Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
This is FOR THE WORLD. Discouraged Christians. Sobbing sinners. Hurting, broken people in a dark and dying world.
This is not a message of condemnation but of a heavy prayer burden. Child of GOD, You are the Light. We just have to use it and shine for them all to see! Shine for JESUS ♥
IF we share the Truth…If we seek His Face in our prayer closets, we will surely find Him and He will share His heart with us. Let us pray for one another in this dark hour, and for the soil to be tilled, and for The Laborers to bet sent forth to The Harvest. I pray this encourages you. If it blesses you in any way, it’s The HOLY SPIRIT. I’m just writing what’s on my heart. God has been showing me things lately…like how the wall of my pride has to come down. We don’t have to worry about what in the world we are going to do right now because He said He’d finish what He started and NEVER leave us nor forsake us. Sweet dreams, Beloved. Rest, knowing it’s okay to be broken. You do not have to stay that way… Jesus Christ paid for your debt and with all 39 Stripes He paid for your healing and hurt.
1 Corinthians 1:28
And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
Romans 8:14-18 KJV
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
Praise God for The Holy Spirit reminding me tonight that I need not feel condemned and guilty for lack of servitude. There is great need and opportunity in my very path to serve and to help others, but I am not doing so. I was reminded tonight that I cannot do it of my own strength. Thank you Jesus! I need to ask God to change me from the inside out and make me able to serve. You see, in listening to the enemy (the accuser of the Brethren), when pointing out my shortcomings I became very depressed. I went to sleep confounded without words.
After I got up, the sweet Spirit of God reminded me of this truth: Father God will finish what he began in me by Himself. He doesn’t need my help. I need His. I cannot change things myself by my own strength. It begins with my personal well-being. The devil has been attacking my entire daily life. I have been going around in a negative circle. My body clock is off with poor sleep. I am napping around the clock without an actual nightly sleep cycle. Because I am exhausted, I am not exercising, not to mention the poor diet. I am not equipped for the job without my Heavenly Father doing the work in me necessary. I may be weary and worn but I know that God can turn all of this around. So I give it to Him.
Not by might, but by His Spirit.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13
Sitting here alone tonight and it’s almost 2 a.m. There’s so much going on in my life right now, so many things on my mind. I see the whole world gone mad and increasing rapidly day by day. So I guess you could say it’s like this great whirlwind of heartache and chaos from beneath my very own roof extending all throughout this world. Today I took an extra nap. I admit I’ve been feeling defeated with all of these problems and people that I cannot control nor fix. But then it dawned on me tonight…
I’m still in His hands. My God, my Father reminded me of how my 14 year old Chihuahua’s health has perked up and how she has come so far in but a couple of months. It was revealed to me by Him of just how far she had come and how bad her pain was. I recalled crying in my husband’s arms a couple of months ago when it looked like there was no hope at all. My baby was walking around with her tiny frame all contorted and whimpering along. I just knew she’d have to be put to sleep, forever… But we took her to the vet to get checked out. The X-ray showed that her spine was bent in the middle (the arch of her back) and the cartilages between the disks had worn so thin at the top. He didn’t mention putting her to sleep and I held my breath.
That day my husband, my mom and I returned home with some pain medication and antibiotic for her stomach and diarrhea episodes. We’ve went back a time or two for refills on the pain meds. She still requires maintenance but looks normal now. Sort of thin. There are days when she needs her meds…but my oh my, My God breathed on my dog, my baby!!! And some days, she runs like a puppy. I can hardly keep up when I try and meet her at the mailbox! I know she is still elderly at 14 yrs old. If the Rapture of The Church doesn’t happen first, I will experience her loss. But not like I would have. I truly believe she will be in Heaven forever with me.
I now see that I have taken this all for granted. This MIRACLE! Of course The Lord knew all about our special bond and how she’s been there all along. Since before my Bipolar diagnosis and through the loss of my dad she has always been there. Sitting here tonight in the quiet gave me the ability to really think. The Lord reminded me that if He could do such a great thing for my tiny dog, Little Bit, how much more great things could He do in the rest of my life. I was discounting Him. The Creator of The Universe. I am learning to walk by faith and not by sight. All for His glory. God is love itself. God is compassion. All good things come from above.
I am so grateful for the hundreds of people that cared enough to respond in prayer during that time for me. PRAYER is so powerful. It is so important. It’s so awesome that The Lord has brought me into networks with all sorts of Brothers & Sisters in Christ. In these dark times we really need one another to keep that fire going. I just wanted to share this with everyone in hope that it blesses you and may bring encouragement to a hurting soul.
If you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ, He is only a prayer away! Find love beyond measure, peace that surpasses understanding, and the comfort of The Holy Spirit today! Don’t put it off. We never know what day may be our last.
Revelation 3:20 King James Version (KJV)
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Romans 10:9-13 King James Version (KJV)
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
God bless ♥ † ♥
When I take a moment and pause to think about my life, I am overcome with joy and quiet laughter. It’s because of the glory of God being revealed to me each day. His miracles are the sweetest things I’ve ever known. Every time with Jesus. He gives me butterflies.
Acts 2:25-28 King James Version (KJV)
25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
He knows we have little strength.
Revelation 3:8 King James Version (KJV)
8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
But He takes care of us!
Matthew 11:28 – Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Isaiah 40:31 – But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 41:10 – Fear thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed; for I [am] thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Matthew 6:33 – But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Accepting the free gift of Salvation (which comes through The Lord Jesus Christ, The Son of God, and He alone) CHANGES everything! With The Holy Spirit inside of you, a new heart and a new perspective… The Bible, God’s Word, will come to life unlike before you were saved! In Jesus you will find purpose. In Christ there is a peace that surpasses understanding. You are never alone.
Heart surgery was what I needed.
Ezekiel 36:26-27 King James Version (KJV)
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
If you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, I encourage you to see Him now because the soul goes on. You were created by Almighty God and will exist forever either way. Jesus is the only way. I pray you will make Him your way today. God bless. ♥

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1 KJV
Have you ever looked at other people and thought to yourself, “How does everyone else have it all together? And why is it I seem to have so many issues?”
I understand. For most of my life, I’ve struggled with my weight and committing to a healthy lifestyle. My soul was rubbed raw from years of trying and failing.
I wanted something to instantly fix my issues.
I wanted to stop calling myself awful names I’d never let another person call me.
I wanted to be naturally thin like my sister.
I wanted to stop crying when I walked into my closet to get dressed in the morning.
So when I lost 25 pounds a few years ago and kept it off for the first time in my life, it was a huge victory.
But my real celebration hasn’t been over the smaller clothing size and reduced numbers on the scale. My real celebration is over the spiritual insights I gained while losing the weight and maintaining my healthy progress.
For me, this has been a spiritual journey — a significant spiritual journey with great physical benefits. I had been overweight physically and underweight spiritually and finally tying those two things together was life changing.
One of the richest lessons has been realizing the amount of mental and spiritual energy I wasted for years just wishing things would change. All the while, I was beating myself up for not having the discipline to make those changes.
If you have an issue with weight and food, you know what I mean. But no matter what issue you are currently dealing with, can I offer a bit of encouragement?
Jesus wants to help you with that issue. He really does. But you’ve got to stop beating yourself up about it and determine to follow His lead.
We like to identify our shortcomings, form them into a club, and beat the tar out of ourselves mentally. Over and over and over again. We label ourselves and soon lose our real identity to the beaten and bruised fragility we call “me.”
We compare, we assume, we assess, we measure and most times walk away shaking our head at how woefully short our “me” falls compared to everyone else. How dangerous it is to hold up the intimate knowledge of our imperfections against the outside packaging of others.
If there is one thing that living 40-plus years has taught me it’s this: All God’s girls have issues. Every single one of us.
But we can make the choice to identify our shortcomings and instead of using them against ourselves, hand them over to Jesus and let Him chisel our rough places.
The grace-filled way Jesus chisels is so vastly different than the way I mentally beat myself up.
My mental scripts are too often full of exaggerated lies that leave me feeling defeated. His chiseling is full of truth that sets me free.
Oh what a difference.
Jesus doesn’t compare.
Jesus doesn’t exaggerate.
Jesus doesn’t condemn. Our key verse, Romans 8:1, confirms this.
He simply says, “Hey, I love you. I love you just how you are. But, I love you too much to leave you stuck in this. So, let’s work on it together. You can do this.
There is something so powerful in really believing that with Jesus’ help you can do this. Say it with me, “I can.” I can is a powerful little twist for a girl feeling deprived and defeated.
I can helps me walk into the dinner party and find the conversation more appealing than the food table. I can helps me stay on the perimeter of the grocery store where the fresher, healthier selections abound and smile that I know this.
I can helps me look at the drive-thru menu and order a fruit tray without even giving a thought to the fried foods I used to snack on. I can reminds me to look online for a restaurant’s nutritional information before going out, ensuring wiser choices. I can reminds me no food will ever taste as sweet as victory does.
Having issues isn’t the absence of victory in our lives. It’s simply a call to action reminding us victory is right around the corner. Today is a great day to start believing you were made to walk in victory and to say to Jesus, “Yes, with Your truth as my guide, I can.”
Dear Lord, help me see myself the way You see me. Remove the lies that defeat me more often than I want to acknowledge. You have set me free. Help me live like I truly believe that. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
I just want to break loose from this flesh and its sin nature. I want to be forever free from the weight of the devil’s condemnation. I don’t really quote Scripture, while The Bible is The Sword of The Spirit. God’s Word is our Sure Weapon in this daily spiritual warfare we wage.
I’ve got so many songs to sing. I think I have some bitterness still locked up within me. Daily my mind is assaulted with the lies of the enemy. Much of the time these untruths get to me, deep and far under my skin. Oh, Lord Jesus, how long?
It’s becoming more and more difficult to be separate in this world. Living faithful is an ongoing battle between the spirit and the flesh. I know in the depths of my heart, Father God, it is my greatest desire to please you and to give thanks as much as I can express for all that you have done for me. Thank you for Jesus Christ, Your only Begotten Son. My Savior. My Blessed Hope. I know He keeps His promise and that my God is the only Rock of solidarity, reliable to cling to under the sun. The Holy Bible and Word of God is the only Truth. I woke up and found out it was all a lie…like the wars and world wars I studied in High School History classes and into College. Turns out Satan really is at the top of it all. There is a systematic order of powers that be. And we are at the bottom my friends.
Jesus is coming for me. Though I feel so inadequate and that I am finishing this face poorly…I know that His Blood covers every sin. I surrendered my heart, myself to Him many years ago in my youth. I lost my mind and drifted from the fold. After living recklessly, disillusioned by the chemical imbalance and caffeine all though my twenties…at 30 I realized this is what I was created for. Not for a private practice. But for sharing the Love that has been shared with me by my Maker. My God. So you see, I do have a purpose. I have had a purpose all along. My whole 30 years of life has been lived out according to His plan. What Satan intends for harm, our Father in Heaven works out to the good for us. Nothing is wasted when you are a Child of God.
Now I have peace that I cannot explain. I still have the memories and scars from my roller-coaster of a past. The flashbacks are unpleasant but I choose freedom in Jesus. I still feel unworthy sometimes. But…Truth is…none of us are worthy. That’s why Jesus died for all of mankind.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Our Salvation is not how we are feeling. Our Salvation is in Christ. Once you give your heart to Jesus, you surrender. You ask Him into your heart, acknowledging Him to be the Son of God who died for your sins on the Cross and rose again. You choose to repent or make changes in your life to live faithful to The Lord the rest of your life. Here is an example of a prayer you can pray to receive Him right now. If your really desire to change things and experience true joy and the many blessings as His son or daughter then the time is now. However, you just can’t call upon Jesus to become a son or daughter of The Lord God Almighty in your prayer and then go about your life living for the pleasures of this world. Following Christ is not going to Church on Sundays and partying the other 6 days of the week.
Salvation is free for all. Right now you could be set free…
Also, see Romans 10:9 and Acts 2:38 King James Version.
It can really be okay. No matter what.
Today could be your last day. Today The Trumpet could sound, and it would be too late if you are not ready to go with Jesus. Don’t be left behind for the horror that is soon to come. Jesus is the ONLY way out of HELL and the Tribulation soon to come. The New World Order has everything set up, but it cannot be implemented until The Bride of Christ is removed.

THE DAYS OF NOAH
We are told that when Jesus comes again to rapture (harpazo) us home, that it will be like when it was in the days of Noah. This passage, frequently cited to by Biblical scholars and writers, indicates that it was a sign of the end times and as such, should be a condition that should alert us to the coming of the Lord.
37But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
These verses tell us that when the Son of Man appears again, people will be eating and drinking, marrying and giving up in marriage just as they did right up to the day when Noah went into the ark. Everything was normal, in other words, for those who were unaware of God’s intentions. However, for Noah and his family, it was clear that the time was coming when God would bring all of creation to an end.
Looking at the story of Noah contained in Genesis 6, the condition of the world was vexatious to the Lord. He looked down from His throne in heaven to find that corruption had filled the world. The perfect creation of His hands had become everything He did not intend.
1And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.3And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.4There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. 5And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.6And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.8But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. 9These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. 10And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.11The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.13And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
These were days that brought sorrow to the heart of God. As we look at this passage we see that giants walked the face of the earth as angels had mated with God’s creation thereby corrupting the flesh that God had created. This was the age of the Nephilim, the age of Nimrod, the age of men of renown. We now wonder if this was a time when many of the great ancient monuments were built such as the pyramids of Egypt, the Sphinx, Stonehenge, Easter Island and others. There are a number of ancient wonders that we cannot explain so we wonder if mighty men constructed these wonders.
Whatever the result, ultimately there was a judgment upon all of mankind. Previously, God had granted man long life but He then decided that life should be limited. Consequently, the term of man’s existence upon the earth after this would be one hundred twenty years. I know it sounds like a long time to us but in comparison to what man had been given, it was a dramatic reduction. Men would now be limited to a lifespan that was 1/8 of what it had been. For us, it would be like being told that your life would be over at ten years of age.
Many people concentrate upon the fact that everything would be “normal” before the end. However, I think that Jesus meant much more than just that. Otherwise, that is what He could have said. Instead, He gave us a metaphor stating that it would be like the “days of Noah”. So, what were the days of Noah like?
According to Genesis 6:5, God saw that the wickedness of man was great upon the earth. We hate to contemplate it but does wickedness run rampant today throughout the earth? As we look upon God’s creation and the moral fiber of the people who inhabit this earth, can we honestly say that we must please God?
Do we murder children such as those who offered their children in the fire to Molech? We don’t do such a thing. Instead, we offer our children to the god of greed, the god of mammon, the god of convenience and of money. We have aborted (murdered) 43 million babies since the decision in Roe v. Wade was written. Do you wonder how many babies have been murdered in China for the sake of population control or the desire to have male children? What about other nations through the world? Hitler had nothing on us. He only murdered 6 million Jews. He could have learned a thing or two from Planned Parenthood.
Jesus said that it would be like the days of Noah. In the days of Noah, the earth was filled with violence and corruption. The only righteous person in all the earth was Noah and his family. As we look upon God’s creation today, can we honestly say that it is not corrupt or violent? The answer is no, we cannot. The earth today is filled with violence and it is thoroughly corrupt. It is now as it was then.
Depressing? Pretty much but just as God saved a remnant then, He will save His remnant now. Do not despair for the days grow shorter. The time is coming when the trump will sound and our names will be called and we shall find ourselves removed from this state that plagues us now. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords is coming and when He does, all of His children will finally be called home never to suffer corruption again. My brothers and sisters, keeping looking up for our redemption draweth nigh. Jesus, Mighty King and Victorious Lord is coming with a might shout. Yes, it’s real, it’s very real.
This is the moment of Salvation. I encourage you to give your life to Jesus right now. Not another day is promised to any of us. He is waiting with open arms. Departure is imminent, and so is the horrific 7 year Tribulation. All things are possible with God. Put everything down and just Let Him in.
Inner peace. Rest. Healing. Comfort. Restoration. Transformation. All things are possible with God. Jesus can do it for you. This clip is of proof of His love and Power. Amen.
Come to the fountain of Living Water today and never thirst again.
