He is Faithful – Obedience is Key to Promise
February 2012

Arise Bride of Christ; arise sons of God, for all is in My hands.  Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Trust Me, trust Me, trust Me, for I AM your Father, your Creator.  Peace, be still.  Do not be afraid.  Rest in Me for I draw you close to My bosom.

Believe Me when you cannot see a way out, for you walk by faith and not by sight.  [2Cor 5:7]

Let patience have its perfect way.  Have you considered that I find you worthy to go through all that you are going through?  As I have told you, there are leaders that are going to have to step down; although they were first sent by Me.

The harlot and the world have lured them and seduced them, promising to fulfill their desires.  Falling into compromise, they have taken on their own agendas to satisfy the lusts and pride, seeking to please the people, rather than seeking to please Me.

My people must choose to lay down sin; without excuse, without compromise.  The adversary continues in his agenda, to blindside My people, to cause them to stumble and fall into sin.  This strategy is to keep you far from Me upon the broad highway.  Confusion is his mastery.  
Yea, although I allow him to prove (test) you for a season, I bid you to endure.  As you trust in Me, it is I who shall draw a line of confusion around all enemies of the cross and their way shall be paved with stones of emptiness.  It shall be as nothing and you will not turn aside to the right or the left, as you cleave to Me.

My glory shall cover your armor and the brilliance of it shall blind the enemies of the cross and send them into confusion, for you are more than conquerors through My Christ, who loves you.  
My holy angels go forth at My command.  As you cry out for discernment and walk in My commandments, My Spirit shall cause your eyes to see all illusion, all grandeur of the adversary, all deception.  

The flesh of your ears and heart shall be circumcised, so that you will hear and receive truth, if you do not resist My Spirit.  Do not be as the Pharisees.  I shall cut away all excess flesh so that your heart will be clean and pure, yet you must not resist.  Before his own people stoned him, Stephen cried out:

Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. [Acts 7:51]

Travail to Bring Forth
If you shall suffer the death of the flesh gladly (fleshly desires, appetites, lusts/sinful nature), and travail to bring forth, then shall I bless your going out and coming in, your rising up and your laying down.  

You shall be the head and not the tail.  You shall witness My blessing and not a curse.  For this reason, My Son became a curse upon that tree, taking upon Himself the sins of the world as a living sacrifice, to become the only way for sinful man to reconcile with Me.

No greater love has no man than this; that a man lay down his life for his friends. [Jn 15:13]

This hardship has been allowed to bring you to your cross.  This call to holiness and obedience is absolute.  Shall the love of fleshly passions outshine your love for Me?  My LOVE is the foundation of your faith; be rooted in My love, for then shall you go forth boldly.
I allow Satan to bring you to your cross.  Embrace the cross, knowing that as you bow before Me in obedience, whatever you ask of Me in My Son’s name, that shall I do, for then you shall know My will and not ask amiss.

Come unto Me and abide, so that your joy may be full.  Hardships, trials and tribulation shall be in this life, yet in abiding in Me, you shall know what to do.  I shall strengthen you to obey, if that is your earnest desire.  Will you obey Me? 

Will you follow My lead?  Am I truly your first love?  Do you trust Me in all things?  Do you love others as you love yourself?  Walk in love; walk in holiness; walk in obedience.  Wait upon Me.  Walk in faith, for without faith it is impossible to please Me.     
                                            
(So beloved brethren, I encourage you to embrace the cross. Embrace the trials and the tests, and give God the glory. It is Jesus/Yeshua who intercedes on our behalf, praying that our faith not fail us.  We can trust Him.  Endure this hardship, brave one, brethren of mine… the victory is nigh us! – BP)

O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires. And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones. [Is 54:11, 12]

Step Out in Faith
Watch and see what I shall do, as you step out in faith, overcoming all flesh, a complete dying to self.  You have longed to do the greater works in the miracles that are coming, running parallel to great tribulation upon all nations.  There is a cost.  

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You: because he trusted in You.  [Is 26:3]

The above is from February 2012 from a post called – Again He Says, Do Not Give Up in Testing Times (Part 2).  However, this is further what the Lord said to me.  I had been fasting, praying.  I will continue, as led.  First, I present this further word:

Yea, you have given up much; it has cost you greatly to walk the narrow path.  Now I ask this one last thing of you.  
Shall you be like the rich man who walked away sorrowfully because he simply could not let go of that which he had clung to for so long?  To surrender all, his comfort, his peace, his love and passion, his very life... the cost was too great.  He could not trust My Son, Yeshua/Jesus enough to surrender all. 
What would become of him then?  This had been his one comfort, his one surety, his pleasure.  It is what he clung to, to keep him going through all of life's disappointments, trials and tribulation.  He had to walk away from Jesus/Yeshua, in great sorrow.  He chose to keep his life and thereby lost it.  Shall this be your sad ending?

Do your part and I shall surely do Mine.  You know deep within what it is you are to do, that which you are to surrender.  Yea, though it be hard, watch what I shall do as you step out in faith.  Though the flesh will rise up against you, and though the adversary will seek to draw you back, to cause you to come down off of your cross, I urge you to persevere.  

Lo!  I AM with you.  Even if I AM silent, I AM with you.  Even Jesus agonized upon His cross:  Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?  (My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?)  Yea, He had to fulfill scripture, even Psalm 22.

 I knew My Son would go through, even though He had power to come down off the cross.  You also have the power to lay down your cross.  You can refuse to do this thing I ask of you, but I who created you tell you that you can go through.  You can do this.  And when you do this, the glory of the latter house shall be greater than the former.  

God’s Remnant Armies
I AM positioning My people; from the generals to the foot soldiers.  You have been through gruesome trials and testing.  Those who are to be generals and top commanders in My armies must be dependable, submissive to their King and obedient.  Likewise, all other members, right down to foot soldiers must be dependable, submissive and obedient.

This is how good armies operate.  This is how a body of believers must function.  The Body of My Christ (Y'shua/Jesus) is composed of members from generals to foot soldiers.  Are all the hands, or are all the feet?  Are all the eyes, or are all the ears?  Every part is crucial and necessary to function as a whole and healthy body.  

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.  [Is 9:6, 7]

This one thing has been a stronghold on you, yet you cry out to be all that I created you to be.  My people, My disciples, let go of that which has hindered, yet comforted you.

This last thing that I ask of you (letting all go into My hands), is for you the most difficult part of dying to self.  Do not fear, as the rich man did.  His fear turned him away from Y'shua/Jesus.  He could not let go; he simply could not imagine life any other way than the way he had always known.  Think upon this one last thing before you make your final decision.

The Disobedient Prophet
There was a prophet that I had given a personal commandment to.  He was not to eat bread or drink in a certain place.  Yet, he was tested by Me through none other than another prophet of Mine, one of his own kind.  

The test was to see if the prophet would continue on in obedience to Me, no matter who told him otherwise.  This prophet should have continued on in obedience, and sought Me on the matter, but he did not.  All things previous have been for an example.

And the man of God said unto the king, If you will give me half your house, I will not go in with you, neither will I eat bread nor drink water in this place: For so was it charged me by the word of the LORD, saying, Eat no bread, nor drink water, nor turn again by the same way that you came. 

 So he went another way, and returned not by the way that he came to Bethel. Now there dwelt an old prophet in Bethel; and his sons came and told him all the works that the man of God had done that day in Bethel: the words which he had spoken unto the king, them they told also to their father. And their father said unto them, What way went he? For his sons had seen what way the man of God went, which came from Judah. 

 And he said unto his sons, Saddle me the ass. So they saddled him the ass: and he rode thereon, And went after the man of God, and found him sitting under an oak: and he said unto him, Are you the man of God that came from Judah? And he said, I am. 

Then he said unto him, Come home with me, and eat bread. And he said, I may not return with you, nor go in with you: neither will I eat bread nor drink water with you in this place: For it was said to me by the word of the LORD, You shall eat no bread nor drink water there, nor turn again to go by the way that you came. 

 He said unto him, I am a prophet also as you are; and an angel spoke to me by the word of the LORD, saying, Bring him back with you into your house, that he may eat bread and drink water. But he lied unto him. So he went back with him, and did eat bread in his house, and drank water. And it came to pass, as they sat at the table that the word of the LORD came unto the prophet that brought him back: 

 And he cried unto the man of God that came from Judah, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Forasmuch as you have disobeyed the mouth of the LORD, and have not kept the commandment which the LORD your God commanded you, But came back, and have eaten bread and drunk water in the place, of the which the LORD did say to you, Eat no bread, and drink no water; your carcass shall not come unto the sepulchre of thy fathers. 

 And it came to pass, after he had eaten bread, and after he had drunk, that he saddled for him the ass, to wit, for the prophet whom he had brought back. And when he was gone, a lion met him by the way, and slew him: and his carcass was cast in the way, and the ass stood by it, the lion also stood by the carcass. 

And, behold, men passed by, and saw the carcass cast in the way, and the lion standing by the carcass: and they came and told it in the city where the old prophet dwelt. 

 And when the prophet that brought him back from the way heard thereof, he said, It is the man of God, who was disobedient unto the word of the LORD: therefore the LORD has delivered him to the lion, which has torn him, and slain him, according to the word of the LORD, which He spoke unto him. 
And he spoke to his sons, saying, Saddle me the ass. And they saddled him. And he went and found his carcass cast in the way, and the ass and the lion standing by the carcass: the lion had not eaten the carcass, nor torn the ass. 


And the prophet took up the carcass of the man of God, and laid it upon the ass, and brought it back: and the old prophet came to the city, to mourn and to bury him. And he laid his carcass in his own grave; and they mourned over him, saying, Alas, my brother [1King 13:8-30]

Obedience
Yea indeed, obedience is important to Me, for even Jesus, My Son learned obedience by the things which He suffered [Heb 5:8].  He willingly and obediently went to the cross.  Will you willingly and obediently lay all down now, your life, upon your cross and trust Me for victory?  

There are those whom I have warned that if they do not lay down the one thing that holds them back, they shall die and not fulfill their destiny.  They shall be taken out before their time or die in the wilderness, with unfulfilled promises – all due to fear, unbelief and disobedience.

Think upon the disobedient prophet.  Who is the lion that walks about seeking whom he may devour?  Think upon the man in the Corinth church who was fornicating with his father's wife (his own mother).  What were the people told to do?
In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. [1Cor 5:4, 5]

Think upon those in the flood, who rebelled against Me and would not repent.
Which were cut down out of time, whose foundation was overflowed with a flood: [Job 22:16]

American Standard Version (ASV) - Who were snatched away before their time, Whose foundation was poured out as a stream
I ask you once again to let go of your life and lay it all down upon the cross.  You have been obedient in all areas, yet this one, this one thing holds you. 

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.  [1Jn 2:16]

I have been longsuffering with you, for I know all that you have faced in life.  I AM your Creator.  Remember the lion; remember Satan; remember the flood.  Remember My word!

Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but He reveals His secret unto His servants the prophets. The lion has roared, who will not fear? the Lord GOD has spoken, who can but prophesy? [Amos 3:7, 8]

How My heart grieves, as a Father with a wayward child, who meets an untimely death because the child rebelled and would not heed the words and instructions of a loving Father!  Let My heart rejoice in your love for Me!  Prove your love by your obedience, for I long to bless you.  It is the time many, including you, have waited for.  Obedience is the key!
The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts. [Hag 2:9]

for His glory alone

Wait - Time to Do What You Delay in Doing

After seven long weeks, I have finally received back what the University of Saskatchewan was able to recover from my disintegrating external hard drive. It will likely take me a couple of weeks or so to go through it all (thousands of files); however, I have spent several hours going through one large file.

Sadly, so far, it seems that over half of that one large folder is lost forever, having been corrupted beyond salvaging. Not everything in the file folder is my writing though, so I still have a ways to go before I will know the final outcome.

Whatever is lost has served its purpose. That is how I must look at it. Yes, it meant thousands upon thousands of hours over years of doing research, the writing, the praying, the waiting upon the Lord. Be that as it may, I am at peace now. Sure, at first I wept - the shock, the realization of years of work lost.

Yet, was it ever really my work?  Was it not really all to the glory of the Lord? We, His people have His written Word - the Holy Scriptures (Bible); plus those who are born again have the Word come in the flesh, Jesus the Christ (Yeshua the Messiah) residing in us.
THAT is the WORD that lasts forever - all else is nothing for nothing compares. That which I wrote was that which the Lord had given me by His precious and Holy Spirit, but it was not scripture. Therefore, that which matters most - and shall always matter most is the written Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, by His prophets and the apostles.

Forever O Lord, they Word is settled in heaven. [Ps 119:89]

The next two writings I came across as I painstakingly begin the task of going through the many files on the external seem to fit what has been being said in the past while. One was written in December 2008 and the other written in June 2011. I post them now for your discernment (we are warned not to believe every spirit, but to try (test) every spirit to see if it is of God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. [1Jn 4:1])
                                                     
WAIT


December 4, 2008 4:14 pm

Hold fast to your faith, mighty warriors!

(This word is for someone - perhaps it is for a few 'someones')...
 
Stand fast! Yes, stand fast and wait upon the Lord. I know you have been shaken strongly, even sifted as wheat. I know you feel weak spiritually (exhausted). Perhaps you feel spiritually disoriented.

Fear not, be strong in Me. Rest in Me. Quickly you shall be strengthened if you wait on Me. I am with you in this - yea, I am in all that concerns you. There are more battles fast approaching. War is coming.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
[Eph6:12]

You have done well in all the tests (gold is tested and purified), and in the trials (silver is refined), and in tribulations (times of preparation). Akita mani yo, mi’kola. [Observe everything as you walk the path (in life), my friend]

Yea, I call you friend. You are My child, who has proven to serve Me with loyalty despite the attempts of the enemy to have you, 'Curse God and die.', (Job's wife to Job) or even in, 'Has God said?' (serpent to Eve)

Then said his wife unto him, Do you still retain thine integrity? Curse God, and die [the adversary wants you to give up] [Job2:9]

Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, has God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? [the adversary plants doubt to birth unbelief] [Gen3:1]

Yea, rest in Me, waiting upon Me and I shall give you rest. I shall quickly strengthen you, for the hour is late. As spoken to Joshua, Gideon and David the king, so I say to you, I give you victory. You shall overcome the adversary and all the enemies of the cross, when you do as I command and go where and when I direct you (obey).


For they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life unto death. [Rev 12:11]

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is Yours; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and You are exalted as head [Christ]above all 
[1Chro 29:11]

But thanks be to God, which gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ [1Cor 15:57]

And having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it. [ the cross] [Col 2:15]

Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint [Deu 8:15]

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. [Lk 10:19]

You have stood fast and true, even in moments when you could not bring yourself to speak to Me due to emotions, but your heart kept repentant, as did king David's. This is not the time to give up with unbelief.
You certainly believe that I can do all things and repeatedly, at given opportunities, you testify to My power. With Me, nothing is impossible [Mat 19:36] nor is My arm shortened that it cannot save. [Is 59:] Yes, you do believe I can do all things, so would you allow unbelief to come forward to command you now?

Warrior, through My Son Jesus and Him alone; you have all authority. Prepare for another battle. FEAR NOT, for lo, I AM with you. You shall walk by faith and not by sight. Come near to Me for already you feel a stirring deep within your spirit. I AM preparing and have prepared you, teaching you all along, even in times of silence.

Continue to trust Me as you rest in Me, waiting for Me. Strength comes. Unbelief dies as trust triumphs! Fear dies as faith lives. Let all things of the past go now, for it is dead and gone.  Trust in Me, and as you rest, I shall strengthen you.
Now is not the time to give up in frustration, anger, doubt or unbelief. Now is not the time to toss away what I have ordained or quit in hopelessness.

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
[Ps 27:14]

Do not look back. Know that you and all that concerns you is in MY most competent hands.

And you shall love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might [Deu 6:5]
And the second is like, namely this, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these. [Mk 12:31]

Walk in the love, patience and understanding that I have shown you.  Now extend that same mercy and love to others. Run with the message that I give you and through it all, I shall be glorified.

I tell you a truth. Be wise and fill your lamp with oil. In Me, you shall find strength to overcome and you shall be given white garments. Your name will be found in the book of life and My Son Christ Jesus will confess you before Me and before My holy angels.

When you are strengthened, go and encourage the brethren and do not tire of speaking to those who are lost and to those held captive. Do not be concerned with the look upon the faces. My love in you must reach out to those in danger of damnation. The mercy I have shown towards you will grant you patience,

Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
And He shall send Jesus Christ, who before was preached unto you
 

[Acts 3:19,20]

Whosoever therefore resists the power, resists the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. [Rom 13:2]

Selah

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]

For HIS glory†
                                                          

June 26, 2011 [6.26.11] - 1:11 AM

Time to Do What You Delay in Doing
When all around you seems chaos, think hard upon times where I helped you in the past.  Did you not feel I had left you?  Did confusion try to overpower you?  Did you not feel then that it was more than you could bear?

What did you do?  You pressed in, you sought Me and you found Me.  I strengthened you to endure.  I directed you to praise Me for the spirit of heaviness.  I directed you to pray for your enemies and to pray without ceasing.  I directed you to My word to strengthen you and to feed you.  I comforted you.

This is what you must remember, for I foretold it.  The enemy, the accuser of the brethren (Satan the adversary) has come before Me to accuse those who call themselves by My name.  He cannot enter into the holy of holies; yet there is a heaven above the earth that he roams back and forth about, seeking whom he may devour and upon the earth he walks about, seeking, ever-seeking.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walketh about, seeking whom he may devour  [1Pet 5:8]

He will accuse My people, saying:
'They love you and are loyal because you bless them...allow me to touch their lives.  Let us see if they love you when it's all taken away.'
Let us see if they trust you or have faith.  Let me interfere in their friendships and steal from that friendship.  Let me bring division in amongst them.  Let's see if they will still pray for each other.'

'Let me seduce their senses and stimulate their physical desires.  I know just the ones to put upon their path.  Let me interfere in their marriages, in their intimate relationships, in their trusted comrades.

If they don't run to you, they will simply thank you as they succumb to my temptations, not knowing they are deceived. Let's see if they really do cry out to you first.  Let us just see! if their heart is really with and for you, or if they just honor you with their lips.

Let me put them to the harder tests; let me take and test them severely in every arena.’

(Note* - This is the prideful and arrogant attitude Satan operates in, and similarly nearly echo Satan’s very words concerning Job. - BP)

Now I say to you, you do well to remember this:

I allow the tests, the trying of your faith. I allow the trials and tribulations.  Did I not warn you of the fire and the water?  Did I not say that you will not be burned, nor will the waters overwhelm you?  Beware, least you are filled with pride, or anger or bitterness.  Fear not. Remember that I am with you. 

Remember, for you know that all things work together for good to those who love Me and are the called, according to My purpose. [Rom 8:28] I am He that will purge and purify you.

Those who die to self will not give into temptation.  Those who stay humble and seek My wisdom and direction will not be seduced or fall into pride about the good works they are doing, or allow division amongst those whom have stood by them in dark days, those whom I have ordained to be – those who are Mine. 

Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Who has saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,  [Eph 2:9; 2 Tim1:9]

I have orchestrated your life, as you surrendered to Me.  You do well to remember that I AM Sovereign.  Do not go off with your own plans and ideas. Come to Me and I shall direct you and guide you by My Spirit.
My people, be guarded as you take your steps.  Wait upon Me to be sure it is time to step or if you should take a step at all.  Wait upon Me to see if it is time for you to move out or to stand your ground.  Yea, deep within you will know, for I am He who puts within you the wisdom, when you seek truth.  You must wait patiently.

Wait upon My timing, but do not run ahead.  More importantly, do not lag behind, for you know the darkness and you see the time.  In your desire to do My will, be sure that you are not going on to accomplish your own will.

Your faith is being sifted as wheat, just as Peter.  I forewarned you.  You may feel pain, anger, confusion, frustration, a desire to quit, a pull for change, a restlessness - or you may feel justified, righteous – experiencing thoughts, feelings and emotions of all kinds. 

Beware of flesh. Beware of the adversary, the counterfeiter. He will try to send you off in another direction, to the right or to the left.   Do not surrender to the negative, yea, but neither be swallowed up in pride and self-righteousness.  Be meek, be humble before Me. Surrender your life; lay it down and truly die to self.  

Forgive and you shall be forgiven. Be merciful and you shall obtain mercy. Be obedient and you shall reap your reward in due season.

With great love, I correct.
In mercy, I discipline.
Lay it all down now.  

Quit saying, I'm not perfect. 
Quit saying, I'm struggling.
Quit saying, I can't right now because...
Quit finding excuses and reasons.

Trust in your Lord with all your heart and lean not to you own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Me and I shall direct your steps. [Prov 3:5, 6]

How can I direct your steps if you will not obey or justify your reasons to delay? What of habitual sin?  Shall I let you go on in your ways, if I did not allow the Israelites, in days of old, to go on in their ways?  Have I not shown you mercy? 

Have I not been longsuffering?  I will break the chains of bondage when you cry out to Me and trust in Me. Are you so proud that you think every thought is of Me, or are you humble enough to seek Me in prayer and ask Me?

Be careful and guard yourself against any sin of presumption. Will you smash all of your idols and be done with idolatry? Selah  I AM the same yesterday, today and forever. I shall have no other gods before Me.
Focus on My Son, Y'shua (Jesus) and the end result - victory.  Pick up your cross, My disciple - death is not forever.  There is a resurrection that comes after death.  Be found WORTHY of Me. You say you trust Me and you do well, yet I ask you, ‘Can I trust you?’

I am working, not you.  Do not look at what you are doing.  Look at what I have done and shall do, when you truly die to self.  Give thanks.  It is almost time! Do you not know and do you not say... it shall come suddenly.  So shall My Son come again suddenly…as a thief in the night.  Only I know the day or the hour. Shall you miss your visitation?

My people will be needed by others in the days that are fast approaching - great destruction, death, tribulation such has never been seen before. Yea, great sorrow has begun - tribulation immeasurable awaits at the door. Prepare your hearts; prepare your minds. Repent of all that is not of Me; quickly come. Rend your heart and not your garments. 

If My people, which are called by My name, shal humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin, and heal their land.

Now Mine eyes shall be open, and Mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.

For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever: and Mine eyes and Mine heart shall be there perpetually. 
[1Chro 7:14-16]

Yea, so it shall be that I come to you when least expected.  Do not be caught off-guard.  Do not delay any longer nor continue on with excuses or reasons.  Why do you fight against that which I have ordained?

You will not find perfection in the world. To be perfect in My Son is to be complete in Him, mature in heart and whole. Yet, My work continues in My people, to circumcise the heart (of excess flesh) and to make you pure in heart (in intent and motive).

Babylon shall fall and the harlot will fall with it.  Come out from amongst them.  You are not their Savior; My Son Jesus (Y'shua) is the Savior.  (Again, I say) Do not look at what you are doing; look at what I am doing and shall do, when you truly die to self.  

I speak once, yea twice, but man perceives it not. [Job 33:14] 
Do not be so quick to cast off that which I have ordained because it is not how you thought it might be. Wait upon Me.

Press through and onward.  It is almost time for you to see it in the natural.  Have joy in your sorrowing.  Trust Me in the fire and water, for I will bring you through.   Yea, I am with thee.  

Great tribulation for the world soon begins; it has begun, for it begins slowly and then shall build momentum.  Lay down your life now, for you have asked that you be considered worthy to escape that which is coming and to know what I would have you to do. 

That is why you have been told to learn to hear My voice, not the voice of flesh or the voice of the adversary, who is a counterfeiter, father of lies, a murderer.

My grace is with you.
There is hope in your despair.
Confusion is not of Me.

Have faith to do (Die to self; humble yourself and in due time, I shall lift you up).
Have faith to move (In love, in forgiveness, in patience and understanding, in mercy and grace).

Love Me enough to obey.
Trust Me enough to do – and to wait on My timing.
Know that I am with you...

As you obey...
As you lay down your life...
As you trust in Me.
There are delays that I have allowed, even brought about, for purging, purifying, for disciplining (chastising), for molding and shaping, as the clay in the potter's hand, or as the sword in the hand of the blacksmith. 

Yet now I say to you, it is time to do what you delay in doing. Fear not. The delays have been necessary, to lay down the past gently. The enemy has tried to stop that which I have ordained, but you overcome him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony; and love not your life unto death. [Rev12:11]
