“Seek Mercy, Love Justice”

heard this answer in my spirit, one night, to my question; what do You want me to do?  The rest goes, “walk humbly with our God,” Micah 6:8.

Your word, O Lord is truth forever! If ever I don’t “hear” Your voice in my spirit, Your written word is more than enough to fill my life with wonder and song and Your commandments are a life’s work to obey.  And only possible in tandem with You.

“You answered me” Psalm 138:3.

“I Remember You, MY Daughter”

Heard in the spirit while worshipping at church.

Have you ever been sliding by, too? with a little worship here, a little attention paid to the Lord there?  I think I’m alright with the Lord, but this showed I had been distracted.  He welcomed me back.

My first Love, I return to – Revelations 2:4.

First and extravagantly, over the top love. Nothing else will satisfy.

It was my first time in that building, but I stepped into the mindset of total & complete worship to our God.

Abide in My love,” says Jesus in John 15:9.

“I Give Life”

heard in my spirit..

All life, breath is Yours Father God.  You give freely.  You enjoy Your children.  Your word is life.

I agree with Your word, Lord and disagree with the world & flesh.  Words of faith and life, shape our tongues and the weapons into ploughshares (Isaiah 4:2).

“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.” James 4:10.

Jesus Sent 72 Disciples

After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of Him to every town and place where He was about to go. He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.” Luke 10:1-2 (NIV).

One day, I saw the number 72, on a building incongruent with the neighborhood, 72 came up in a Readers’ Digest story and was mentioned in an interview.  That night, the inside temperature was 72 Farenheight!  We looked up and read Psalm 72, looking for significance of the number.

The only verse 72, in the Bible is in Psalm 119:

The law from Your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.

Weeks later, the disciples in Luke 10, came up.  All God’s word is life and good for teaching (2 Timothy 3:16-17). **If you have any wisdom regarding this, please share it!

Difficulty

Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.  Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”  said Jesus in Matthew 7:13-14 (NKJV).

“He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.” says the Lord in Psalm 91:15 (NKJV).

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27 (NIV).

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this  world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NIV).

 

Get Off MY Clay

“Don’t look at that, that’s MY work,” the Lord rebuked my questioning Him about a fellow congregant a few months ago. We don’t know what others have walked through. (below photo courtesy PIXEL).

Jeremiah 18:1-6 (NKJV),

“The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying: “Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.” Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.

“Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter?” says the Lord. “Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel!”

Galatians 6, 1-10 (NKJV),

“Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. For each one shall bear his own load.

“Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches.

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.”

Philippians 2:1-4 (NKJV),

Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.”

Esther 4:14 (NIV), “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”

They Are Pretenders, They Are Not Christians  — Laura Bon

Visions, Revelations and Messages In this vision the Lord took me into a Church. In that Church, I saw some of the people that write awful things and comments on social media. They were part of the congregation. These were people that openly supported and urged the killing of people that were not of the…

Hunker Down and Come To The Light

But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” says Jesus in Matt 6:23 (NIV).

Father God, thank You for miracle baby Scott’s (5 mos old now) continuing, increased strength, O God!  Prove the doctors wrong.  You have Your hand on him, and You are unstoppable. Praise God.

Colossians 1:13 (NIV), “For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,”

1 Thes 5:5 (NIV), “You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.”

Eph 2:12 (NIV), “remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.”

Eph 5:2-6, “and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.

“But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

“Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.”

11-13, “Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light.”

1 Corinthians 6:9-11, “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.”

“Meet Me”

…the Lord said this in the Spirit about attending the other church the next day: a Sunday.

There I met the LORD God, when an announcement was made for a special speaker the following week. That day, a friend’s daughter was admitted to the Emergency Room.  She agreed to go to the conference if she was released in time.  We did all attend, the message seemed to be specifically for each one of us.

Have you ever been scattered, discombobulated, lost?  Come to Him.

Matt 11:28-29 (NIV), “Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Psalm 119:176 (NIV), “I have strayed like a lost sheep. Seek your servant, for I have not forgotten your commands.”

“You’ll Go Through the Fire”

In the spirit, I heard this a few weeks ago, at first it was unsettling.  When the Lord gives us a heads up, we can prepare our hearts.  Then I found these verses below:

Isaiah 43:2 (KJV), “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”

Psalm 66:12 (KJV), “Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.”

Rev 3:18 (NIV), “I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.”

1 Corinthians 3:15 (NIV), “If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved–even though only as one escaping through the flames.”
