Be Ye Strengthened

January 26, 2013 - [o1.26.2o13]



Be Ye Strengthened
First off; I have been experiencing some technical difficulties with Blogger the past few weeks or month, so hopefully this posting does not double itself up, or be strangely spaced.  If it is, I apologize, I have tried all I can do (with my limited technical knowledge) to correct this.



There are a few words that the Lord would like me to release (even re-release) at this time.  They will be dated accordingly to the time they were first given to me.  Right now, He wants us to keep standing strong, no matter what.  



The words that He has led me to release will be self-explanatory.  All glory is His; His love is so great towards us.  Even when things do not work out as we hoped, pray and give thanks.  He will work it out for our good, if we can just rest in His love and patiently wait.  (I myself am still learning patience...if truth were told, I think we all are.)



He is doing a quick work in us now; the final purging (how it hurts the flesh, yet so necessary!)  We look to Him as little children, knowing that our Father is Sovereign and that nothing takes Him by surprise.  We will battle this flesh until we leave these temples, and we will not 'arrive' until we join our Lord.



Yet meanwhile, we keep learning, keep praying and keep cleaving to our Father and Lord.



For we know that all things work together for good, to those who love God and are the called, according to His purpose.  [Rom 8:28]  



I came across a dream that I had written down from last year. The timing is impeccable and the timing is always that of our King and Lord.

____________


 This first word, the Lord led me to post Friday,
April 17, 2009 (given in 2008).  I revised it slightly in 2012, and renamed it from
FAITH.

It was given to me about four and a half years ago.

Faith versus Fear and Unbelief

I saw FAITH as a caterpillar, moving slowly, but steadily. It had to climb over small rocks called '
Doubt'. Faith did climb slowly over the rocks, continuing forward. But as Faith [caterpillar] crawled along, the rocks became as large hills called 'Fear'. Faith did not stop, but it did proceed slower.



Suddenly, before Faith [the caterpillar] stood two huge mountains, called 'Fear' and 'Unbelief'. (It was as though the little hills of ‘doubt’ became a mountain of ‘Fear’.)  Faith hesitated for a long time, seemingly halted; then finally Faith went forward, struggling, ever struggling, yet ‘seemingly’ conquering the mountain of ‘Fear’.



Then, in the valley between the mountains of 'Fear' and 'Unbelief', Faith rested for a time. Finally, with determination, the caterpillar [Faith] began to ascend the mountain called 'Fear', yet it seemed a slow and tedious process.  The word of the Creator spoke softly within the caterpillar, propelling it onward, silently strengthening it.

There were long stretches of desolation and solitude. Faith had to climb this mountain alone. Faith so wanted another to come alongside and crawl along with them to the top of the mountain, ‘Fear’, but sadly, the caterpillar [Faith] realized, it must continue on alone. At times, it seemed as if all strength had left Faith, the caterpillar.

Faith the caterpillar cried out to the Creator to strengthen it. The caterpillar continued climbing the mountain, trembling, tired, unsure, so unsure of itself.  Could Faith conquer ‘Fear’?   Would Faith have the strength?  The caterpillar [Faith] lost its footing a few times, stumbled and rolled back down the mountainside a fair ways. It lay there for a time on its back, flat out, seemingly halted.



Was Faith dead? Had the mountain of 'Fear' conquered the little Faith? With great struggle, the caterpillar Faith tried to right its position, but it seemed impossible to get back onto its feet. Yet, the caterpillar Faith rested, crying out to its Creator.



Faith tried again, called out to its Creator, rested and tried again until suddenly, it was as if in the silence, an invisible hand turned the caterpillar Faith, back into the right position on its feet.



Fear not, you worm Jacob, and you men of Israel; I will help you, saith the LORD, and your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.  [Is 41:14]



With sure feet, Faith the caterpillar proceeded, but it lost its footing more than once. Yet, after a season, each time, the caterpillar Faith began again. Finally, after much delay, much stumbling and a few falls, Faith restarted again and again, until finally the caterpillar reached the top of the mountain called 'Fear'.



For a just man falls seven times, and rises up again: but the wicked fall into mischief.  [Pro 24:16]



After a time of rest, Faith had to face ‘Unbelief’, for it was joined to the mountain of ‘Fear’.  Only a large crevice was between the two mountains, yet they were joined together beneath the crevice.  Faith had fallen into the crevice, caught between ‘Fear’ and ‘Unbelief’.  Yet again, Faith cried out to the Creator, knowing that it could not do it without Him.


A new strength surged through Faith, as the Creator took pity upon the caterpillar.  Though Faith was weak, the Creator strengthened the little one and made it strong.  It was His strength that caused Faith to go forward and 'Unbelief' was beaten. 



The mountains of 'Fear' and 'Unbelief' were now behind the caterpillar, Faith. It was now on straight ground. Faith the caterpillar had overcome the mountains 'Fear' and 'Unbelief', with the help of the Creator.



When Faith looked back, the mountains of ‘Fear’ and ‘Unbelief’ were gone. As real as they had seemed to the caterpillar [Faith], they were illusions. The caterpillar found a resting place and Faith spun a cocoon [covered by the blood, shielded by the Lord, resting in Him]. Waiting, waiting, waiting...



And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. [Mat 17:20] 

                            
At just the right time, Faith awoke and was changed.
At first, I thought that Faith the caterpillar was a butterfly, but as Faith rose up, it also bowed down, between the blades of grass, humbling itself before its Creator.  It stayed there some time, as if waiting upon the God of all creation.

Finally, the butterfly arose.  As it soared higher, there was another change.  FAITH was an EAGLE! Faith soared and flew over the desolate land where the mountains of 'Fear' and 'Unbelief' were.  Lo! The mountains were indeed gone! Faith circled and flew towards the sun and into the ‘promised land’, a land filled with milk and honey.



But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.  [Is 40:31]



Another time, back in the late 90s… (keep in mind; I was NOT following Christ, meaning I do not know if I was even saved yet. It would be many years yet)


I saw the word OBEDIENCE in gold, so pure that it looked white. Suddenly, a dark substance began covering the word from top to bottom. At first, it troubled me that obedience was growing seemingly darker.  On second glance, I realized that the dark substance was BLOOD [the blood of Jesus Christ the Messiah].



Then the blood dissipated or rather, it disappeared into great Light and Glory. The blood of Christ Jesus covers OBEDIENCE until it becomes HIS LIGHT and GLORY.  The word OBEDIENCE had been a gold color, so pure that it looked white, yet with the blood of the Lamb, obedience became such pure gold that it appeared transparent.  ~ Selah ~

We must be as that caterpillar and overcome the mountains of fear and unbelief by FAITH and OBEDIENCE.  The blood of Christ covers and He shall be glorified. We will be purer than gold, transparent, rising up with the strength of an eagle, soaring far above Fear and Unbelief.


But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
[Mat 19:26]

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. [Is 40:31]

 This was on my external hard drive, in my personal folder.  Unsure of the date, but it looks like it was two or three years ago.



Believe



Put your trust in Me. Cast your cares on Me, says the Lord.  You must unburden yourself of all worry and fear.  Let go of those concerns that weigh you down…things that you have no direct control over at this time.   



Have FAITH that I will perform My word in your life and bring you through to your divine purpose.  Rest in the assurance that I CAN do what you CANNOT!  



Release yourself into the perfect peace that goes beyond your understanding into the realm of faith and dependence on My promises and goodness. You will not be disappointed with the results.

 

Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?  [Mat 6:27]


Be confident of this very thing that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. [Phil 1:6]



Impossible!  What I have asked of you seems impossible to your human mind.  You wonder, how can I possibly do what God has asked of me?  And yet you know that in fact God has said you can, when your mind says you cannot.

  

Think of Abraham being sent out from his country to one he knew not and then being told at 100 yrs of age he would be a father of many nations, when he had no child and was far, far beyond child bearing age.  



Yet he did in faith what his mind failed to comprehend.  He believed in hope against hope and exercised his faith to succumb the impossible.  He is your model for what I have required of you.  To you it is impossible, but in Me ALL things are possible.



Impossible…



Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall your descendants be.  [Rom 4:18]



And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body as now dead, when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb:  [Rom 4:19]



He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;  And being fully persuaded that, what He had promised, He was able also to perform.  [Rom 4:20, 21]



In hope against hope, he believed, so that he might become a father of many nations according to that which had been spoken without becoming weak in faith, he contemplated…



And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. [Lk 1:2]



Confirmation



And lo, you are unto them as a very lovely song of one that has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument for they hear your words but they do them not And when this comes to pass [lo, it will come] then shall they know that a prophet has been among them  [Ez 33:30,33]



Turn you to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope: even today do I declare that I will restore double unto you; [Zec 9:12]



My friend’s words…

In Jesus name, victory is

 now by Your holy power Father.  May your will be done.  Please finish the work you started in us.  Please restore us with Your mighty spirit holy Father, in Jesus name



Confusion, fear and doubt = enemy



The cross demands discipline, trust and great responsibility. This takes courage that only comes from God.  Is God not a God who can do ALL things?  We have to be willing to give it all up to get it all back.



Write these words in your heart.  GIVE THANKS as if it were already done. Seal us so strong in your spirit Father and protect us.  By your power and grace, it IS done Father.  We give thanks.



Ask God to give you some kind of confirmation, a sign that it is of Him.  He will not mind, for He knows that in these days of darkness, with many voices claiming to speak for Him, we need confirmation, through His word and by His Spirit!   

Pray as though it is already done.  Give thanks as though it were. (end of friend's word)



There is power in faith

-

Glory to glory, step by step, precept upon precept, line upon line

The Word is His word

This is where the real truth is



People to people

This is where true ministry is

Fasting and prayer

This is where real power lies



Trust and obedience to Him

This is where real faith lies

We obey Him because we love Him!

We love Him because He first loved us.



Doors will open

This is where one walks through

Doors will shut



This is where one does not look back

The eagle flies

This is where I simply wait on Him

Trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your steps.  [Pro  3:5]



Jesus/Y’shua said, Have faith in God



We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed and therefore have I spoken, we also believe and therefore speak [2Cor 4:13]



Death and life are in the power of the tongue and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. [Pro 18:21]

All is well between you and I.  You are searching your heart, desiring to die to self, wanting no part of self-righteousness or pride.  I do not take delight or pleasure in your sorrows or your grieving.  I know that those who are Mine seek answers.  Bet patient yet a little longer.



I look after you, fear not.  You have trusted Me with all; therefore it is in My hands. In the midst of these battles, I AM there.  I fight on your behalf when you are to weary to fight.



Rise up and stand and see the victory and the salvation of the Lord your God.  Things may blow up in your face, but you must stand still.  Fear not.  I know these are difficult times for you, a trying of your faith like never before.  Fear not; I shall encourage and strengthen you to carry on, as you lean on Me and not your own understanding.



I have not lied to you from the beginning, but you must lay it all down.  I AM not man that I should lie.  Ye have need of patience, for when things come against you, you wonder if you have stepped out of My will.  



No I say to you that all of this is necessary to strengthen you.  I do not see as man sees, for many would silence you.  Yet, you must understand, My people all need to be strengthened in the areas of their weaknesses for that which is fast approaching.



The majority of My people must yet learn when to speak and when not to speak.  Some are silent, when I am leading them to speak; some speak, when they should be silent.  

Yet, if you speak when I lead you to and your words are not accepted, then leave it in My competent hands. Pray for one another; love one another, even in the midst of misunderstanding, for it is I who have taught you to do so.


 Fear not, continue on in the way I lead you.  Forgive, as I know you will.  Trust Me.  Much is coming -- all who are watching are aware.  Trust Me.  My people must suffer through so that all may be purged, for My people have asked that all that is not of Me be removed.  I AM doing so, yet it is not an easy thing for My people. 



Be at peace.  You are learning and have been learning obedience by the things you have suffered and are suffering.  Again I say, be at peace in Me, for the peace I give you is not as the world gives.  Rest in Me; soon you shall rise up stronger, filled more with My love and My Spirit.

Trust Me.  The trying of your faith is more precious than gold. Do not fear.  Overcome the mountain of fear.



When the apostles could not cast out a demon, they wondered why.  It is written:



And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say unto this mountain, Remove from here to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.  [Mat 17:20]



Faith is being tried like never before.  The tests are becoming harder, more intense, and more frequent.  Things are escalating in the natural realm also.  This strengthening of your faith is absolutely necessary, for that which you must believe for in the time of great tribulation, will require strong faith.



Chaos and destruction are becoming more frequent as well.  I have warned of this many times before, yet My people forget.  



 For God speaks once, yea twice, yet man perceives it not.  [Job 33:14]



No one likes opposition, battles are not a preference over peace.  Yet, these are the days that you must stand as I command you.  Even in the face of opposition, know that I AM with you.




Each battle shall strengthen you.  Let not pride or fear be found in you, but let patience have its way.  Remember, David could have twice slain Saul, yet he left it in My hands, knowing that I had anointed Saul.  In My timing, Saul was removed.

 

Yet, David did not rejoice over his death, he grieved.  Those that stood with Saul fell also, yet a great lesson was learned.  It is I who sets kings up and it is I who removes kings.  All is in My hands, even when man perceives it not.



Every battle has its wounded, yes and great has been the afflictions.  Yea, if you are afflicted because of sins, then they are purged when you cry out to Me.  In this, your prayers to be purified (found without spot or blemish) are answered, if you keep a repentant heart.



The dross (that which is impure and of no value) surfaces and is skimmed off (removed).  Let patience have its perfect work, so that you may be found perfect and entire (complete), lacking nothing.  If you lack wisdom, ask, for I give it freely, holding nothing back.  [Jam 1:4]



Walk by faith and not by sight.   Be ye strengthened!



For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your wounds, saith the Lord; because they called you an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeks after.  [Jer 30:17]



I will be carrying on with Battle above the Clouds and beginning with a piece on Sandy Hook.  It is likely not what you would expect, but it is continuing on with the deception that the Lord has been revealing.



Indeed, it is the time of revealing and the depth of deception is beyond what most of us can imagine.  Still the arch enemy, Satan/Lucifer rebels against the Most High.  It began long ago, in the heavens, when Lucifer cunningly and cleverly convinced one-third of the angels to follow him.



He never quit, not since the time in the Garden of Eden, with Adam and Eve...his efforts are increased, for he knows his time is short.



Also, it is most fitting to suggest to you to re-read:




for His glory
