The Lord is Fortifying, Girding up, and Emboldening His “WHOSOEVER WILL” Children

fortifying His children

The Lord is fortifying, girding up, and emboldening His “WHOSOEVER WILL” children more than ever.

The ones with their ears and hearts perked and ready to obey His still small voice and then do so.

These have been attacked, misunderstood, even by their brothers and sisters in Christ for saying what the Lord says, for sharing the one true, pure gospel, and what the Spirit has them say.

“As the Lord lives, whatever the Lord says to me, that I will speak” (1 Kings 22:14) is their honor and joy unto the Lord.

But on a greater level than ever, “We wage not against flesh and blood,” (Ephesian 6:12) has become a deeper, unshakable revelation. So deeply rooted that the “arrows” shot from the mouths of others NOW only cause them to open their mouths wide and LITERALLY praise God:

Lord, I praise You! I bless Your Holy name! I love You Jesus! Hallelujah! Thank You, Jesus!

“Blessed are you when men hate you,
And when they exclude you,
And revile you, and cast out your name as evil,
For the Son of Man’s sake.
Rejoice in that day and leap for joy!
For indeed your reward is great in heaven,
For in like manner their fathers did to the prophets,” (Luke 6:22-23)

Verbal attacks that used to bother these, maybe even offend, now do not phase these. These see them as bouncing off like the nothing toothpicks they really are. At rest and total peace, they flick off every verbal attack like lint and continue on with Jesus and His callings, plans, purposes, and assignments .

God will connect these with other like minded “submitted and separated unto Him” ones who take Him for His Word, don’t limit Him, walk by faith, hear His voice and simply obey.

The fiery, sold out for the Lord ones He surrounds these with will be supportive, will “cheerlead” them on and intentionally encourage and build them up because they have total revelation that the church is one body and to build one up is to build us all up. This tribe around these ones allow the love and nature of Jesus to flow though them.

These “building up ones” God is bringing into their lives will trickle in little by little. It won’t happen over night but it will come to pass. Take heart and don’t lose hope. You are not alone in your love, passion, and fervor for Me. (1 Kings 19:18)

Father, we bless You and thank You for this encouraging and life-giving Word!!! You are a good Father who loves to give us good gifts.

Are you feeling spiritually “thicker skinned” more than ever by the power of the Holy Spirit? Let me know in the comments.

The Famine of “Whole Word” Churches & Those Being Kept in the Desert by God

The Famine of Whole Word Churches & Those Being Kept in the Desert by God

To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine.

PSALM 33:19

It grieves me deeply to write that there is a serious famine of “whole Word” churches that rely solely on God’s Word, without any man-made side doctrines, and who allow Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to reign. Many churches acknowledge the Holy Spirit’s existence, but do not allow Him to lead or minister to His people.

I, as well as many others, have tried and tried and have not been able to find a whole Word church and have even heard the still small voice of the Lord telling them not to return to one time and time again. Of all places a church.

These are the verses the Lord gave me about those being kept by God in this time of church famine and how the Holy Spirit used them to speak to me and hopefully encourage you as well: 

To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine (Psalm 33:19). The Lord said, “In this famine of true churches. I AM will keep you spiritually alive. Continue to seek Me with all your heart.”

They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied (Psalm 37:19). He gave me this from one of my favorite psalms and reiterated that, “These are evil times, and I, the Lord You God, will satisfy you.”

While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage (2 Peter 2:19). He said, “I’ve kept you from the corporate church system to keep you and preserve you from corruption. You remember leaving church worse off in faith after attending than before. Having less faith and feeling more oppressed.”

The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore (Psalm 121:5-8). He keeps reminding me over and over to encourage me out in this desert time for the church that, “I am keeping and preserving you from evil.” Mind-blowing that this is in regard to most of today’s churches in America. Most. Not all. 

He opened the rock, and water gushed out; It ran in the dry places like a river. For He remembered His holy promise, and Abraham His servant (Psalm 105:41-42). Glory to God! Yes, there is a true church famine, but He said, “I am the Living water in the dry places. I take care of My children.” 

For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert (Isaiah 35:6). “I give you life in the desert. I make a way when there is no way. Do not doubt Me. Do not feel crazy. Do not allow yourself to be condemned by those who think you are in disobedience. This time is for your protection and preservation.” 

And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days (Joel 2:28-29). He said, “All My children have my Holy Spirit and can know Me and learn of Me no matter where they are, what their title is or education level. My authority is available to all who yield to Me, who call to Me, and diligently seek Me. For all who desire me. Not a select few. Not by location or in special buildings, events, movements, or conference. Anytime. Anywhere. I AM.”

If God has kept your from America’s corporate church building settings. Fear not. He’s keeping you and preserving you from corruption and from being in churches that are of the world. He’d rather you not be under false teachings, churches that compromise, fear man and not God, and have bowed to mammon, entertainment, attraction gimmicks and not truth.

You also see Him connecting you on-line and in person to those who desire His kingdom come, His will be done, one earth as it is in Heaven.

Also, see this as a reminder to pray for the church to return to their first love and the whole counsel of God.

To God be the glory!

God Will Raise You Up. You Don’t Need to Make the Right Connections or Do it Yourself. He Will Set it All Up. – A Word of Encouragement

God will raise you up

Recently the Lord told me more about His calling for my life and spoke this word above to me yesterday morning and has confirmed it twice within twenty-four hours. 

We each have a calling and purpose for our lives, and I know the Lord has called me to write for Him and to minister for Him in some capacity not yet fully revealed to me but in line with how He’s gifted me naturally and spiritually – writing, prayer and intercession, teaching, some spiritual giftings, childlike faith, etc.

The Full Word of Encouragement the Lord gave me.

He said to me, “You don’t have to piggyback on anyone else’s success or make what you think are the “right” connections. You don’t have to put yourself in front of Christian  influencers or depend on the arm of flesh. I will make the way for you for what I’ve called you to do. I will order your steps to the right doors and people and set it all up for you. You just have to continue to listen and obey and stay in childlike faith.”

The Two Confirmations Within Twenty-four Hours

  • I was watching a well known pastor being interviewed last night who was speaking of his very early years in ministry. Way before God raised him up and gave him a worldwide platform, and he said (paraphrase) the Lord told him, “Don’t contact other pastors. Don’t write them letters. I’m going to open doors for you supernaturally.” He then went on to give some examples. One being his wife was speaking on a public phone at a public pool (it was the 90’s) and a pastor of a large church overheard her speaking with him and on the spot invited them to speak at his church. ONLY God! He gets the glory!
  • Then this morning I got on FaceBook and saw this within minutes, I am not a self-made woman. I did not hustle to get where I am nor did I grind my platform into existence. My education or lack thereof was not the shining reason for the measure of success I have enjoyed…It’s not because I envisioned it or had grit or because I am just so super amazing, because I’m not. I honestly have no idea why political campaigns have asked for my input or why I’ve been asked to strategize on pro-life projects of national significance. To my husband, I refer to myself as a houseblob from West Virginia. I don’t know why anybody talks to me. And yet, I now have a writing business and a record label, and I have little notion of how it all happened, except to say that God did it.” You can read her full post here.

Not a coincidence but providence. I pray this speaks to your spirit too.

If this encouraged you, please comment and let me know how I can pray for you and if others see it, I pray they lift you up in prayer too.

God can be trusted to take you to where He’s called you. Be totally open and surrendered to Him. Listen to His still small voice. Seek Him daily. Stay in childlike faith. He loves you more than anyone and will make your dreams come true, and He will do it in the best way because only He can see the hearts and the intentions of the hearts of those around you. You are safest on His path for your life.

Prayer

Lord, I want You to get ALL the glory in my life. I’m surrendered to You and am excited to see how You work in my life to bring the good plans You have for me to pass. In Jesus’ name, amen.
