You're tempted to tremble and fear at the thought of such ongoing spiritual warfare, but if you use the time I'm giving you to become proficient in the art of war, and to learn and apply all that I'm revealing to you in My Word, you will truly enjoy the battles, you will enjoy fighting, you will love defeating your Enemy, because you will be winning.

Anyone who wants it--who wants a fresh new start, a fresh new approach to life, or to people, or to their work, or to their ministry, or to their husband or wife or children, or to someone that they don't get along with--can have it! You can be what I want you to be! You can give the love that I have inside of you, that's just waiting to burst out! You can give good, Spirit-filled reactions. You can give inspiring, encouraging words. You can give love and affection without partiality. You can think positive, uplifting thoughts. You can resist the attacks of the Enemy. You can let My Spirit flow through you and make you different!
You don't have to live in the past or let the past dictate how you live today. You don't have to be what you were yesterday, and you don't have to look at others and think about them the way they used to be. They want to change and have changed just as much as you want to change and have changed. You can be part of the changes that they desperately seek by treating them as new creatures. And you can treat them as new creatures by asking Me to give you the faith for new eyes for them.

How much clearer can I make it? Haven't I already said that God's gift is God's work? Just go back and read it and you'll see that if God chooses to give you a child—whether that child is yours through birth, or whether it's yours through the One Wife vision that the Lord is asking you all to live in your Homes—then caring for that child to the best of your ability is your responsibility, even to your own hurt, even to the sacrifice of your own time, strength and health.

So if you've been feeling like you're about to collapse, that you don't have an ounce of strength left—then that's just perfect, because that's right where you need to be! He doesn't want you to stay in that state; He's going to move you beyond that point because then you're sufficiently out of the way so that He can dwell within you to the point that there are no impossibilities for you!

"With man—that is, with your limited strength and ability—there are impossibilities, but when you fully realize your need for Me and you let Me take full control and work as only I can, then all is possible. When you reach the point of letting go of yourself, even though it's completely contrary to your natural mind, then I can bless you and reward you for that demonstration of trust in Me. Then, even though it seems hopeless and you feel weaker and slower and dumber than ever, you still believe that in spite of all that, I will come through for you. The more you reach the point of recognizing your own weakness, the more you know you need Me; and the more you know you need Me, the more you call out to Me and depend on Me. As your need and dependence on Me grows, so does My power within you grow, until you reach the point where My Spirit and power rests fully upon you. Then you truly become a new creature in Me, one who defies all the odds and can do the impossible!"

My Word Gives Hope

(Jesus speaking:) You have heard of the saying, "where there is life there is hope," and this is true of your spiritual life. The life is My Word, because that is what gives you hope for any situation. If you have lost hope, then you need more Word. It gives you faith, and as long as you have faith, anything can happen.
If you don't have faith that you can change, just begin reading up on whatever subject you'd like to change in. If it's something that there isn't a whole lot of Word on, then come to Me for My fresh Words and I will give them to you. Changes can only come by the power of My Spirit, and the best way to have My Spirit is by feeding on My Word and letting it enter you, fill you, feed you, and give you faith, hope and power--power for whatever you need, including strength to overcome your weak areas.
My Word can make you into anything you want to be. It's really so simple. You become what you read because the Word, if you read enough of it, will fill your mind and heart so much that you will become one with it, and its strength and power will help you to be whatever you need to be.
I have said that My Word does not return void. You cannot read My Word and remain void and empty and hopeless and helpless; it will accomplish the purpose whereunto it's sent and it will fill you and change you. If you eat My Word, you will be filled and have the nourishment and strength to do whatever you need to do. If you look to Me and receive My Word, you'll reflect Me and take on My nature, which is greater than any of the problems of man. (End of message from Jesus.)

You let lethargy come in and it keeps you from trying to step out and love others. It makes you get bugged too easily and you feel like it's your right because you're just a little sensitive to people's idiosyncrasies. But is that right? Is that living the Law of Love? Is that fighting with all you have within you? That is living like a Systemite who doesn't really care about his or her fellow man. You don't want to be that way, do you? You don't want to be unloving. You don't want to be someone who doesn't have any friends because she doesn't show herself friendly and loving, in season and out of season, right?
I want to give you love that covers all sins--that gives even when it doesn't feel like it, that smiles through the many tears, that cares and loves and gives again. How can you get this love? How can you go through each day with My love bursting out of your heart, soul, mind, ears, eyes, hands and mouth?--By reading My Word. By being so full of Me that nothing else can come out, that nothing else can come through. Do you want to be this way? Will you take up this challenge in your life to love, to give, to care?

Learning to handle difficult situations that you're faced with is one of the greatest tests in life. Difficulties, hurts, disappointments, heartbreaks‚ and suffering can either make you better or worse. And if you are worse for it, that's not the fault of the difficulty or the situation, because you are the one who chooses how you react to that difficulty and how it affects you. It's natural to be sad, it's natural even to have times where you're discouraged or are recovering from battle wounds. That's perfectly normal and nothing to be ashamed of. But from there on, whether you choose to recover and be strengthened or stay in that wounded, "down," discouraged state, is totally up to you.

If you ask Me to help you, and then fight to change your mindset, your life will not be all sadness or trying to maintain or forget about the sacrifices involved.
I will engineer things so that you will be very happy, you will have your needs met, and I will even do extra things for you to reward you. You will forget about the sacrifices, because I will pay you back abundantly. And remember that when I pay you back to the point where you don't feel that you've made a sacrifice, that's where it has only reached one percent of your reward. My promise is to repay one hundred­fold, so there's much, much, much more yet to come! I love to spoil My brides, those who give Me everything.

What you on earth call "battles," half the time aren't even battles, they're just attacks--with the enemy doing all the attacking. It's not truly a battle until both sides have engaged each other. If one side is doing all the attacking and the other is just sitting there, its more like an ambush, a rout, or even a massacre.

If you don't have the vision and then actually follow through and fight, then its no battle. It's just you getting hit again and again and again, and there won't really ever be a resolution in sight. You have to make it a battle; you have to decide to engage the Enemy.

Tuesday, June 20, 2006 He's Closest When...

If you're worried about not being close to Jesus, do you know what kind of person He says He's really close to? It says, "The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart."—Psa.34:18. So the more desperate you get, the more broken you get, the closer He becomes to you. If you want reassurance that the Lord is close to you, then have a broken heart. Then you know by the Word that He'll be close to you. It doesn't really matter if you feel it or you don't feel it. But often when we're in the most broken condition & in our most desperate situation, we feel it more too. We feel the Lord then because we're hanging on to Him for dear life!

When we're only looking to Him we can then see Him a little better & even feel Him a little better. When you're in that state & you know you've made a mess of things & you're sorry, that's when the Lord is nearest to you. In other words, when you are bad & filthy & covered with mud, that's when He's closest to you—not furthest away. Even if you don't feel it, you know it by faith because He said it, & if you know by faith that He's close to you when you're bad & broken & sorry, then you know that it doesn't come as a result of your somehow earning it.

Look at all the people you know who have gone through major trials & breakings & rewirings, who have pulled through & made it. They also had to face a difficult fight, a terrible struggle. Their trials & breakings were just as hard for them as yours are for you.—Perhaps not exactly the same, but just as difficult.

I think everybody feels like it's the end of the road for them when they're going through their big breakings. Everybody feels like there's no more hope & everybody feels like giving up & everybody feels like they're going to die & all the worst things that you can feel; everybody feels that during their big breakings. But the Lord's got to put you through all that to get you to where you'll just look to Him & nothing else will matter.

Like Jenny

JENNY LIND, THE FAMOUS SWEDISH NIGHTINGALE, was considered one of the greatest popular singers of her day. Her music teacher said, “Jenny, you've got everything to make you the world's greatest singer, but one thing!” “What in the world is that?” she asked. “I practice all day long & you say I have tremendous range, versatility & talent! What haven't I got?” “To make you a truly great singer,” he replied, “you have to have a broken heart!” So he thereupon proceeded to break it for her! She fell in love with him & he jilted her. Then she began to sing from her heart! The songs she sang became her own—songs of loneliness & tears—not just a collection of words & music—but it was her own heartcry! (ML#32:7)

Emotional changes‚ hurts, disappointments, trials—these are hard to bear, but remember that I measure each one out with great care, concern, and love for you, so that there's never more than you and I can handle together. Give it all to Me, and I will ease the pain and heal your heart.

I've used the sorrows you have known in life. They've been needed to keep you from being shallow and vain. Those I gift greatly in life must also bear the cross of knowing disappointments and pain, so that they can become truly great.

Don't look at the rough road‚ but up at the bright rainbow; not at the mud, but at the smiles in others' eyes; not at the rocks in the way‚ but at the flowers; not at the sores and calluses, but at the strength you've gained; not at the pain, but at the joy you will know forever. There's nothing you've gone through that I don't have the perfect reward planned in return that will make it so very worth it.

(Jesus:) You have to have the sort of faith in My power that demonstrates willingness to lay aside or sacrifice something of value in order to see My miracles. This is the definition of true desperation. When you sacrifice your pride in speaking in tongues or crying out to Me; when you forsake your own thoughts and focus your all on the altar of prayer. Your soul burns on the torch of prayer. You can feel it burning inside of you when your desperation creates a vacuum for My Spirit.
You need a vacuum. You need to create an empty hole that I can fill. The laws of physics. When you're praying half-hearted, lukewarm prayers, there is nothing opening up inside of you, no doors opening to let Me in, no desperate clearing away of yourself to make room for the Master. This is what I require of My miracle workers of the End. This is the way I want you to pray for your needs.
Please, I implore you--move Me! I require only one mustard seed of faith, because that is not something you can muster on your own. But I do require that you roll away the stone. I do require that you make prayer a sweet-smelling sacrifice unto Me. If that means sacrificing your time, or sacrificing your pride by praying or praising Me in a way that humbles you, or sacrificing your energy in pouring out your soul to Me--let it be a sacrifice!

Everyone stumbles, everyone falls, but it's those who continue to get up after they fall and keep walking forward who gain the victory. It's not that you'll one day have it down so well that the Enemy will call it quits and never attack you again. The Enemy is the accuser of the saints, and he comes in whenever he thinks he's got a little something on you, especially if it's a victory you've really had to fight for. He'll try to get you to take your eyes off of the goal and to look at all your faults and failings and mistakes of the past, telling you that you can't possibly make it, but you can't let him obtain that advantage over you. When you're climbing up that narrow, rugged mountain path, and he stands in front of you trying to obstruct you, reminding you about all the times you stumbled or fell en route, you don't have to listen to him. Push him aside. And if you find yourself in a tight spot, use the keys, and they'll help you to rise right above Satan and his obstruction, so that you can continue on your way. Keep fighting the fight! Keep striving to follow the direction I lead, and be faithful to get any new directions I have for you, so that the light of My Word can continue to guide you‚ enlighten you, and show you the way.

(Jesus:) If you give up while you're still climbing the mountain, you'll never reach the top. Rocks along the way are not problems but footholds that will take you to new heights and victories.

(Jesus:) To gain any victory, to fight through any battle, or to win any kind of war, you have to really want and desire the end result. You have to picture that result in your mind, and hold it out in front of you like a goal that you're shooting for. With every battle there is a victory, with every struggle there is a resolution—and you need to determine what that victory and that resolution means to you and really decide and know in your heart that you want it.

Don't face your battles figuring that you'll just scrape by without fighting hard to move forward. It's unacceptable to just hold your ground. You've got to advance, gain ground, overcome, and go on to greater victories.

Thank You, Jesus, that You're right by my side as I travel up the mountain of this life. As I travel the path of Your will, You're always holding my hand. You're always there to comfort me. You're always there to show me the way. You're always there as my guide, my comforter, my friend, and my constant companion.
Thank You that even when I get tired and weary with the strain of everything around me and I look at the obstacles that are in the way, You comfort me and tell me of Your love. You encourage me to keep on fighting and keep on walking.
At times when I feel the lowest and the weakest, and I feel like I'm nothing, You hold me close and make everything all right.

"When you reach the perimeter of your ability as a man, when you fall defeated at the retaining wall of your own limitations and realize the impossibility of escaping what seems like the prison house of your own human frailty or ability, that's when you come to really know your limits, and that with man it is impossible. But the place that seems to be the end of all that's possible for you is not the end at all that's actually possible! That's really the place of great beginnings. That's the border, the frontier, the great divide, the place where you end and I begin."

Enjoy My blessings and all the tokens of My love that I'm showering on you. Do not sin against Me by focusing on the one black dot, the one tinsy black speck, on the wonderful picture window that looks out onto the world I've given to you.

I do offer you the world. It's My world, and you as My wife own it as well. So enjoy, and thank Me. Let My joy be your strength, daily.

But as long as we're leaning on anything other than the Lord, we will not have the strength of spirit a disciple needs to have. Until we forsake what is dearest to us and realize that God can give us the grace to go on without it, we will never become fully mature, grown men and women of God. We will remain children at heart, spiritual infants, emotional dwarves, never fully developed, our spiritual gifts never completely refined. Sometimes it takes that kind of purging, that kind of loss, that kind of complete removal of all props, that kind of being stripped of everything but God and His promises, to draw us close enough to Him that we can truly be called His disciples.

Bearing Crosses

This is part of a prophecy that a wonderful person sent me today:

"I know exactly what you can go through and when you are able to go through it, so please know that while I have known what you would face, the sorrows that would come to your life, the hard and difficult decisions you would face, I did it knowing fully that it was a cross that you could bear. Just as My Father knew that I could bear the cross of the sins of this world, because it was My cross, the cross that I was to carry, and He had given me the power to do it. He had filled Me with the grace, love, compassion, humility, and faith which I needed.
"So now, My dearest one, I fill you with just what you need in order to carry this cross. This is a cross that I have asked you to bear for Me. Thank you for bearing it willingly. And while it hurts, and while your heart breaks, and while you often feel your heart is in agony, this is yet another breaking that will bring you closer to Me, closer to others, and closer to your destiny."

"Never, never, never give up!" Never, never‚ never give in to the Enemy! No matter how bad things seem, no matter how defeated you feel, no matter how impossible the situation looks, no matter if it seems to you like God is never going to answer your prayers and things aren't ever going to change, keep trying! Keep praying, keep listening to Jesus, keep reading the Word‚ which will give you faith. And then, in that moment when you least expect it and when you're barely managing to hold on, but not seeing any results, the Lord will come through with a miracle!

The secret to lasting victory is My Word! For when one is truly touched by My living Word, it gives lasting power and strength to those that partake thereof.
Do yourself a favor and feed on My Word! Then give My Word to others who are in need of help. Share My Word, give My Word, walk in My Word, talk about My Word! Live it, breathe it, exude it! And if your brother or sister falls, help them up through My Word.

I know you've heard lots of times that I love you, that I care for you, that I will never leave you nor forsake you. I know that a lot of times these kinds of things go in one ear and out the other. I know that it is sometimes hard to believe, and at other times a little easier, but all in all it's not taken quite as seriously as I wish for it to be. The thing is, those kind of statements have become quite cliche. With people using and abusing them; spouting them out frequently without as much feeling or depth. So when you hear them from Me, you associate it with the way others say it and therefore you don't fully fathom or feel quite what I mean when I say those words to you. You see, I have a depth of feeling behind them that is quite impossible to describe especially when I am bound by your mortal language. But that is why I need you to come to Me and ask Me to show you in your heart. I need you to open you heart up to Me and seek to feel the power of My love. I have alot to show you, but if you let yourself be hindered by your carnal understanding of certain words and think that is all there is to it, then you will never truly experience My depth and the depth of love that I have for you.

Relationships in life aren't perfect, and this is why forgiveness is needed. You don't forgive someone because they're a wonderful person; you forgive them because they need forgiveness, because they've done something that was wrong. Maybe they've done many things that were wrong, but when you forgive them, when you don't hold a grudge, when you let go of any resentment, you reap the beautiful fruits in your own heart and mind. You experience a lifting of the burden of the bad feeling. You experience a lightness, a joy, a happiness, a contentment that you didn't feel before. This is because you're set free - free from the bonds of bitterness or resentment through your forgiving the other person.

The ways of the world can be appealing at times, but the true revolutionary is repulsed by them because he knows they are in direct contradiction to God's way. He rejects the vain and ungodly mindset because he cherishes his higher calling and committed mindset. You've chosen God's way, so to hell with the ways of the world!--They'll never satisfy the radical flame within your heart. The world sickens you because you just want Jesus. He's all you need, and that makes you a deadly force against Evil. The more you go all-out for Jesus, the more the attachments to the world will fade day by day.
The need is for you to drop out and flip out in a world where you don't need [System influences] to be happy. Reverse the effect; spend so much time in Me and My Word that all other things of the world become undesirable. Not the other way around.

It's easy enough to be happy and cheery when everything is going well. When you're healthy, have your loved ones beside you, and are in a good situation, it's not a triumph to keep your chin up and stay positive. But when you can look on the bright side of things when everything around you seems dark and gloomy, when you can find those diamonds and jewels in the dark rocks of your "mine," that shows great strength of character. You are the victor when you learn to turn bad into good, sorrow into joy, despair into hope, through the power of positive thoughts. And you won't have to do it alone, because I will help you.

All the best things in life come packaged in a ribbon of risk. You untie the gift, you assume the risk, and equally, the joy. Parenthood is like that. Marriage is like that. Friendship is like that. In order to experience life in the full sense, you expose yourself to a bottomless pit of vulnerability. That is the essence of true love."—Kristin Armstrong

You all want My help, the help of the omni­potent, almighty God—that's hardly a question. But to admit to yourself that you're so weak that you need the help of another weak, lacking, faulty, stumbling human being, that is a true admission of weakness. Yet through this humility comes great strength.

Victory and happiness don't come when everything in your life is peachy. Victory and happiness are the blessed results of living more in the realm of the supernatural than the natural. You're happiest when you choose not to allow the things of this earth to get you down, when you choose to rise above.

Should you stumble and feel like you are not worthy of such a gift‚ I will lift you up and show you that this gift is a gift of grace, not of works. This gift is for the weak, for those who can't do it themselves. It's the anointing that I will pour forth because of your need, because you can't do it yourself, because you stumble, because you're weak. It's not a gift given to those who are strong and want to do things themselves; the weaker you are‚ the more of this anointing I can give‚ and the stronger you become in My Spirit.

It takes strength of character to love, to reach out, to do the humble things-whether it's apologizing for something you said or did; appreciating someone you don't normally appreciate; suppressing a proud or negative comment; simply trusting Me when things don't go the way you'd like them to; trusting Me when you feel you should have gotten a better deal, knowing that I know and see all and will reward you even when you feel unappreciated by ­others; taking things patiently; making it your priority to live My Word and show My Spirit; and being Me to others to the best of your ability. This all takes strength, and that strength will come from making a strong threefold cord between Me and others and yourself. And the closer you draw to Me, the closer you will draw to others. This will be your strength.

When the Devil smashes your life and leaves you in broken pieces, God can come in, take those pieces, and create the most beautiful stained glass window the world has ever seen. God loves to turn our every impossibility into the most wonderful opportunity you have ever had.

By having that spirit of faith and praise, you get an extra dose of
grace and power to see you through the battle, no matter what it is, even if you are facing death, or serious pain, or a very trying emotional battle. Use praise to defeat the Enemy and to lift your spirit above the clouds, as you soar on the wings of praise and rise above.
Thanks Smich for sending these to me. And thank you for your friendship.
Love you!

I see you the way that you could be,
All the love in your heart that longs to be set free;

Then I see dark walls that try to keep you bound, all around.
Like a precious jewel, deep within the mine,
You are the treasure I searched so hard to find.

Only I know the way you will shine one day.

Every tear, every trial is to bring you liberty;

Every heartbreak is to set you free.

Every stroke of the chisel is a gift of My love for You,

My diamond in the rough.

I cry everytime I hear that song. So beautiful!
It reminds me of V for Vendetta when V tortured her because he loved her so much he wanted her to be happy and have no fear. It's easy to forget that principle. Jesus is so in love with me that he is putting me thru this.
I love you too!

When you go through one of these long-term battles and you've done all in your power to overcome, but you're left to fight on in faith, know that you're instructing angels and great numbers of heavenly helpers who are motivated by your faith and your conviction and your fighter's spirit.

There is a point of rest
At the great center of the cyclone's force,
A silence at its secret source;
A little child might slumber undisturbed,
Without the ruffle of one fair curl,
In that strange, central calm, amid the mighty whirl

I love you because I made you exactly how you are. I didn't program you to be perfect and you just screwed it up; I made you with your faults. I gave you those things you don't like so much about yourself to enrich your life to give you challenges, to give you something to overcome and to conquer. I gave them to you not to burden you, but so that you might develop wings to soar above them. --Jesus

Strength comes in giving when you are stretched.
Forgiveness comes in forgiving when you are hurt.
Tenderness comes in being soft when you feel like hardening.

Are you going thru something major in your life?
Sometimes a quote, poem, song lyrics or just one word is all you need to cling to to make it thru the day.
"Call on the keys of endurance and just cling!"

Here are mine...
