"Let this mind be in you, which is also in Christ Jesus."

Be Ready to Give an Answer

Love is the theme today. There are many lonely and afraid. Look into their eyes to see how deep it goes. Be not afraid to connect with these and make it a matter of prayer. You can show forth my love and peace.

Do you think you have nothing to give? Do you think I haven’t implanted on the inside of you something they need? Yes, you are my light in this world. Illuminate all I have given to you. This love and light will show their pain. Be ready to give them a reason for your hope in my salvation.

Salvation to save in all areas.

“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.”
I Peter 3: 15

Be Filled

This season marks the time of eagerly awaiting the enduement of power that was promised. Yes eagerly my disciples looked forward to this infilling. They had seen my power and acts of miracles and knew I had promised this to them. This power would catapult their ministries and drive the proclaiming of my gospel to the world.

Look forward, my children, to an even greater awakening; a greater outpouring. This has been prophesied for my end time harvest. My glory will manifest in unlikely places; it will fill halls and meeting places. Seek this infilling for My service. Greater miracles will you perform; greater manifestations of My Spirit will you witness. Cry out in earnest for this; anguish in your soul to be filled. Step forward in your destiny endued and renewed.

I will not leave you powerless.

“And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry you in the city of Jerusalem, until you be endued with power from on high.”
Luke 24: 49

“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: and also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.”
Joel 2: 28-30

Be at Rest and Abide

Let it be enough. Let all I have accomplished be enough to draw you to My throne. There is sweet communion there; there is strength there. As my children who have received me, you can be immersed in My Spirit. My Word is truth and it is Spirit; let it be enough.

In today’s world these are gluttonous times. Enough is never enough. More is better. Accumulation is the theme of the day. Work harder and build bigger barns. Strategically place this stuff in every nook and cranny. Reverse the curse of this mindset. Learn contentment in whatever state you are in. Be at peace with the place I have brought you. Calm your mind and be at rest finally. It is at this place of rest where I can abide with you.

Let us commune at My throne.

“Godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.”
I Timothy 6: 6-9; 17

Call Me Savior, Lord and Friend

Many will call me Savior. Many will call me Lord and friend. Others will cry Abba Father. As we become more intimate and you receive me in every area of your life, our relationship will mesh and we will become one in the Father.

If you hold back and hold on to secret areas that you think I do not know, I cannot fully rule and reign in your life. Remember because I am all knowing, all present, and all powerful there is not an area that I cannot know about, an area I cannot be present, or areas I am not able to save by my power.

Call me Savior, Lord and friend.

“And the scripture was fulfilled which says, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.”
James 2: 23

The Cross

The night is far spent. The day ahead long and arduous. My obedience paramount; my resolve imperative. As I looked to the cross I must bare, it was with compassion for those who would also see it for their salvation. Many will look and turn away but many more will see it for what it was to become; a place of redemption and sacrifice for their sins. A place to save the sinner and set free the captive.

Look again lest you miss all that is intended. Look again for all the cross bore; a place I surrendered my life to save all who would come and receive this great salvation.

All we like sheep have gone astray.

“He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to is own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
Isaiah 53: 3-6

IT IS PASSOVER

The day begins as any day. It is a time of remembrance. My disciples think this is a time as any Feast day. A time to gather and come together. A time of preparation for this day of remembrance once a year. It is all customary; it is familiar. They are glad to once again be in my presence.

Even as the bread is broken and the wine is poured out, they cannot know the true significance. Even as I articulate the truth of my broken body and my blood poured out for them and the world, it holds only symbolism. How can they know what will transpire? How can they envision the horror of the coming days? Nothing or no one could come against the coming events. It is My Father’s will. I lay down my life. No one takes it. I could have called my armies to prevent such an act.

All points to my sacrifice. From the first shedding of blood in the garden. Skins that only covered yet revealed the shadow of things to come. The sacrifice of Isaac not needed for only I would suffice. Only My blood would be pure enough; the blood of The Father.

Come and partake. Eat my body and drink my blood as a symbol of what I gave. A sinless, perfect sacrifice. Once for all.

IT IS FINISHED.

“Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoso eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. This is the bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eats of this bread shall live forever.”
John 6: 53-54; 58

Draw Close to Me

Draw near to me where intimacy is sweet. It is where I can heal all of life’s pain. It is where all fear can be laid down and healed. Be set free from these burdens and find rest in me. You go to and fro seeking help and strength. Find help in me; find strength in my presence. Come before me in your loneliness and I will fill you with my love. Seek me when all else fails; you will find me waiting.

Draw as close to me as you can; then draw nearer still. Turn down the glare of the lights; turn low the blare of the sounds and quietly and peacefully enter in. Step into my presence and I will bathe you in my peace. Gather your thoughts and point them to my name. Whisper my name and sing praises to me. We will then walk hand in hand through this life. Don’t let go and I will lead you, as I know the way.

The way to perfect peace.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes on me has everlasting life. I am that bread of life. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”
John 6: 47, 48; 51

Jesus, The Messiah. There is none like you.

Your beauty is like the rose. You are the Rose of Sharon.
Your brightness as the Sun. You are the Light of the world.
Your countenance is full of glory. The glory of the Father.
Your power is all consuming. You are the Lion of the tribe of Judah.
Your love is supreme. You gave your life as a ransom for many.
Your grace toward us pure. Your mercy endures forever.
Your majesty fills the heavens. Glory and honor to your Name.
Your Kingdom is forever. And of His Kingdom there shall be no end.
Your forgiveness is eternal. He remembers our sin no more.
Your the good Shepherd. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me.
Your the Bread of Life. You provide all our needs.
Your the Savior of the world. There is none like you.

“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”
Psalm 23

See My Great Salvation

A generation is coming to pass that will see my great salvation. I will come in all my glory and in my might, given by the Father. I will be the great conqueror. I will come as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. All will bow their knee and all will confess.

What are the nations waiting for; why do they seek their own way? There is no love for the Father; there is no belief in my coming. They think that they will rule a kingdom and they will reign supreme. They will even try to defeat the one that sits on the white horse; clothed in righteousness. There is no understanding in their heart and no allegiance to the one true God, YAHUAH. (Read as YA HUWA meaning “O! HE is” in Arabic.)

I come to rule and reign.

“Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, let us beat their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us. He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall hold them in derision. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.”
Psalm 2: 1-4; 12
