Sunday, September 24, 2006 ooooo I love it!

Only those who fight with no fear of loss in their hearts conquer all. They have nothing to lose, therefore they gain all things. They conquer all, for they are not defending personal claims or possessions, but are rather fighting for the honor of the Kingdom. They proudly open their arms to the battle, and they smile into the fray, for they know that it can only serve to better them. They know there is no loss in this battle--only victory.
Therefore give all, without thought of the morrow, that you may gain all. Give without fear of loss, that you may gain the treasure, the spoil of the battle, the reward of the fight--for it is highly esteemed and precious. One soldier who fears no loss is worth more than a host of soldiers who fight with reservations in their hearts. Therefore, strive to have no fear of loss. Place all in My hands. I shall keep it there and then you need not fear loss. You will not lose.
I wish to make you of a special caliber--those upon whom the Enemy can exact no fear or worry. You must trust explicitly and champion the cause of those around you, that you may show others the joy of fighting without reservation and of obtaining the perfect victory. This is the glorious conquest of a fighter.

Thank Him for the hurts along the way. Thank Him and ask Him to use them to keep you humble, compassionate, and understanding of others. As you grow in love and are able to really love others with His impartial love, you'll soon see that it's a gift to have gone through the hurts and tests of being rejected, because it gives you a soft heart for others.

Until you're able to be happy in every situation, you can't really be happy in any situation.
No matter how hard you try to convince yourself to the contrary‚ your happiness and satisfaction in life are not determined by your actual circumstances but by your attitude

One ship sails east and another west
While the selfsame breezes blow.
'Tis the set of the sail and not the gale
That bids them where they go.
As the winds of the air are the ways of fate
As we voyage along through life.
'Tis the set of the soul that decides our goal
And not the storm and the strife.

Friday, September 15, 2006 Year of Jubilee!

My darlings, do not fret about the many battles you have had to fight‚ and even the ones that are still ongoing and that you must face, but look to Me for My strength, and call down My anointing, and you will go from strength to strength. You are strong warriors in the spirit, no matter how you feel in the flesh. You are glowing for Me in the spirit, no matter how dirty you feel from fighting. All the dirt that you have picked up during the war does not make you less worthy or insufficient fighters; it makes you more worthy and it makes you fighters of distinction.

Daily Work Prayer

Lord, I call on the Power of the keys for inspiration, and even a passion for my work. I don't want to look at it as something to dread, nor as a form of escape; neither is healthy. Help me see it as a calling from You, as Your commission to me, which it is.

Help me not to get my eyes on the little details of how this or that job is difficult, or allow myself to think about how I don't really feel like doing it. Please give me a productive spirit. Help me go on the attack and press in with my work so I’ll feel more inspired, and keep my body and mind busy and active. Help me stay on my toes spiritually, since in order to do Your work well I have to be asking the You about everything.

Help me not to kick myself over mistakes! I need to think of every mistake as an opportunity to learn a priceless lesson, and remember that You allowed it. So help me to get all I can out of it and not get down on myself.

Help me to look on the bright side, and put it into words of praise to You!

Remind me of how good I have it; of how wonderful You are Lord, and how much You love me; about all that You’ve given me in the form of love and care, supply, protection, friendship and fellowship, spiritual feeding and opportunities for growth!

I thank You for all those things!

I claim the key: (insert week’s key)

You know why I use words like "cling to the keys" or "wield the keys"? That's because I mean for you to cling to them, not just touch them or even hold them. I mean wield them, not just swing them or fling them around on one finger, but to grip them with both hands and move them expertly, precisely, continually, until your opponent is defeated.

In nearly all cases, the assurance that you were going to come through victorious without even the smell of smoke‚ and were going to be stronger and more able to face the future‚ was contingent upon whether you kept holding on, whether you kept trying, whether you kept going and didn't give up.
These are the conditions for being a winner: You must continue to have faith, you must continue to feed your faith with the Word, you must continue to persevere, and you have to continue to praise and not forget to do it, as this is a powerful weapon against the attacks of the Enemy.

Are you a disciple who is willing to give your all to follow God--even if it means forsaking something or someone you love? Are you a disciple who will hold nothing back from the Lord, but will humbly lay it at God's feet, desiring only to do His will? Are you a disciple who thinks beyond the personal family unit, beyond your intimate life and desires‚ and looks at what will benefit the Family and your Home as a whole, even if it means forsaking something dear to you? Do you live the One Wife vision to the full? Do you trust God enough to obey Him, even when you can't see the reasons why?


Sacrifice is the life of the disciple, but it is through sacrifice that the Lord brings about some of the greatest desires of your heart. It's through the humble forsaking of your own desires and will that God can in turn fill you with something better, something that will make you a better disciple, a better servant, a better bride, a better revolutionary. Isn't that what you want?

Sometimes it's easy for you, My brides, to forget that these weapons of the spirit are just that: Weapons! They are to be used in combat to devastate the Enemy.

Life's many problems and worries have pulled you away from Me. Your self-doubt and fear of failure have weakened your faith that I hear your prayers and am concerned and want to help you. But I 'm telling you now that these doubts are not from Me. They are straight from the enemy of your soul, the Devil. He wants to beat you down and destroy your happiness, but I want to rescue you and lift you up and make you happier than you ever dreamed possible. I want to give you a new start.

When you feel discouraged over some mistake you've made or the way you are, remember that I specialize in using weak, fallible people to show My love to the world. I allowed the disappointments and setbacks you've experienced over the years to make you more gentle, more compassionate, more understanding of others' weaknesses and problems - more like Me - so you can be a bigger help to them.

So you see, even deep dark experiences are good for you, and it doesn't need to stop there. If you will put youself in My hands and be soft and moldable, like clay in the hands of a master potter, I will remake you. I will take your broken dreams, your heartaches, your disappointments, and with My hands of love make you into a better "pot." It may not be as grand or beautiful or perfect as what you had in mind, but it will be perfect in My sight, perfect for the role I have for you to play here, and perfect for your place in My heavenly kingdom.

There will be tests of faith as long as you're on Earth and can't see things fully in the spirit. And as you pass the tests, they increase in intensity, because I shield you from things until you're ready for them. But the more mature and the stronger in spirit and in faith you become, the more I allow the Enemy to test you. So the harder the tests get, the more you can be encouraged that you're really growing and making progress! And you'll find that although the tests get harder, you become stronger in spirit as you pass them, so it becomes easier to overcome the battles.



*****



I told you once that in many ways you would face your tribulation before the rest of the world. These days of refining the Family, of trying you and making you white are a part of your Great Tribulation. You, young and old, will come out of this time united as one, bonded together by the knowledge that you have passed through the fires and come out as gold. You will face the world's tribulation with boldness, faith, peace and fearless joy, knowing to the depth of your being that nothing can stop Me in you.

There is no peace so complete as the peace that I give to you who have yielded to My calling of being parents and teachers.
