FOLLOWING GOD AND HIS CALL ON YOUR LIFE!

FOLLOWING GOD AND HIS CALL ON YOUR LIFE!

Separation will oftentimes be part of your development as a Christian. Before you can take on something new, the Lord may ask you to let go of something you already have. Obedience is meant by saying goodbye to relationships and things dear to your heart. A life you’ve known… left behind. Strong faith will enable you to say yes to what the Lord commands.

Moving ahead in the mist of uncertainty can be another aspect of following the Lord. Unwavering trust in your heavenly Father will enable you to answer the Divine call wholeheartedly – even though specific details aren’t given.
Following God requires living by obedient faith. That means: trusting the Holy Spirit to be your guide; when you don’t see how all the pieces fit together (John 16:13-15); believing that God always works for your good and His glory (Romans 8:28); and having a desire to please your Father.

Question: Will you be ready when He calls?

Are You Feeling Empty?

Are you feeling empty? People walk around looking for purpose as lost as can be. JESUS CHRIST is The Way, The Truth, and The Life and no man can come to The Father but by Him! Jesus is THE PURPOSE! Jesus IS THE REASON your heart is beating. God has a plan for your life! No matter what you’re going through, today’s a new day. Let this be your new beginning. †

This message will save your life. It’s up to you what you do with it.

Psalm 34:18   King James Version (KJV)

18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

Are you hurting?

You may be thinking right now, “I’ve made a mess of my life.” Listen to this truth. GOD uses our mistakes, the broken pieces of our hearts and our pasts for His Glory! If you simply surrender to Him, acknowledge you are a sinner and Jesus is The Son of GOD, the only Way to The Father. And repent, turn from your old ways, the things you used to do. The things that led to your downfalls and sufferings. The things that make you cringe. You can be made new. The scars remain on your body, but on the inside of you something so POWERFUL and SUPERNATURAL happens when you call upon the Mighty Name of The LORD JESUS CHRIST! The Son of The LIVING GOD will set you free! The things that have held you back from so long will be set aside by The Most High. You will never be the same. Salvation is free for ALL who thirst. Since I first tasted that Living Water I’ve never been the same…oh there IS POWER in the NAME of JESUS! BE set free today, precious one! Save not only this life, but what matters. ETERNAL LIFE. Where will you spend eternity? There’s so much more than this life. Even if you’re one of the few that make it to 100. This is nothing compared to forever with no end. Don’t put it off. Make the best decision of your life right now while you still can. Jesus is waiting in anticipation, listening in matchless love. Be blessed in Jesus’ Name.

Sharing my Dream…

This morning after I woke up from a vivid dream, I heard the following words from The Holy Spirit.

 

“This means war.” “Davenport”   “preemptive strike”  and “coven”

 

I was led to Job 39:24 where I read “…the sound of the trumpet”

 

Confirmations for sharing all of this was Ezekiel Chapter 2 and Romans 11

 

In this dream, a friend of mine had a baby and named her

“Tasha Faye.”  After looking it up, Tasha is of Russian, Greek origin. It means “Born at Christmas.”

“Faye” means “Confidence, trust, belief, faith”

 

In the dream my friend and her husband took the baby to the hospital for what I understood to be her first doctor visit.

 

In dreams a baby symbolizes  “new ministry or responsibility that has recently been birthed; new beginning; new idea; dependent; helpless; innocent; sin.

 

I dropped them off at the hospital for the appointment. A Hospital symbolizes “a place of healing, healing anointing.” Also, the baby looked to be from the middle east even though her parents were both Caucasian.

 

Are You Watching?

Are you looking for Jesus? Or..are you caught up in the things of this world? Many are sleeping and not watching for The Master’s return. When Jesus catches His Bride away in the air, it will be like in the days of Noah and Lot. Life is carrying on as normal before The Tribulation. People are eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, buying & selling, planting and building. People are busy in their plans concerning this life on earth, forgetting that at any moment now the sky will part as the Trumpet of God sounds and the dead in Christ rise first. Do not be caught up in this world. It could occur any moment & the “left behind” multitude realizes that the Bride of Christ is gone with the Bridegroom.

Bride

The Book of Revelation is a literal book and nothing is clearer than the company of Tribulation saints in Revelation 7. No picture in the Book of Revelation is more graphic than this multitude of dying or dead saints, martyred for their faith in Jesus Christ. This vast number is clearly the multitudes that missed the Rapture but repented and became willing sacrifices for Christ.

The cost of discipleship today does not touch the cost of discipleship after the Rapture. The devil will have lost the prize of the “Bride of Christ” he had so determined to destroy. Being left behind, then in order to follow Christ and make it to Heaven, the only way will be dying for Him, as a martyr. The Mark of the Beast that enables people to buy or sell in their right hand or forehead is a guarantee for Hell once you take it. It’s easy to say you wouldn’t take the Mark of The Beast for Jesus in the Tribulation…but think about starving to death for instance. Read Revelation Chapter 13.

Matthew 25:6-10 King James Version

6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

Are you shining bright for Christ, or are you lukewarm? Are you living with one foot in the world and one with Jesus? This is so serious!

Mark 13:32-37 King James Version (KJV)

32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

34 For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.

35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:

36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.

37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Also,

Luke 21:34-36 King James Version

34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

With God I Can

tyLordJESUS

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

Psalm 121  

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.

The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Psalm 3:5  

I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained me.

 

 

Psalm 46:1

 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

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.

The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

 

2 Chronicles 14:11

And Asa cried unto the Lord his God, and said, Lord, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O Lord our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O Lord, thou art our God; let no man prevail against thee.

 

Psalm 37:5 

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

 

John 14:16

And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

 

Child of God, there is beauty in the valley. We just have to ask Him to show it to us.

Oh Jesus, sweet Lord of mine, please take my hand and lead me through this wilderness. I cannot see but I’m learning to walk by faith. Hold me tight and I will bury my head in your chest and release all of this pain. All of these tears you will catch and they are not in vain. No matter what the enemy says, I am still a Daughter of The King. Though it hurts so much and I can’t make sense of anything, one thing I know is true. You are mine and I am Yours. You never left my side before, and from every pit You’ve delivered me. Jesus I love you and I know that no matter how dark this night may be or how long and winding this valley is…You are embracing me ever so close and I am growing in You. Father God, I am being conformed to the Image of Your Son. Amen.

If you do not know Jesus personally as your Savior and The Lord of your life…

cryouttoJesus

Cry out to Jesus tonight with all of your heart.  Ask Him into your heart and be saved this day! You can’t do this on your own. This Living Water is free for ALL who thirst.

Romans 10:9-11

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.

Romans 10:13   For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
