What Is The Wilderness? You may ask, "What is this modern Christian wilderness experience thing?

Will I have to go live in the desert, wear camel’s hair, and eat bugs for a number of years?" Simply put, in the wilderness God takes away your normal ability to manage your life, and He leads you into an intensive time of purification, transformation, training, and inner-healing. In this modern wilderness, the wilderness comes to you, and your life as you know it ends. It is the Holy Spirit helping the Bride to make Herself ready. It is happening to many Christians right now. In this wilderness, the Holy Spirit transforms you from the inside out, and deals with all of your sin and pain from the past. Your career, your church-life, your relationships, your marriage, your residence, your finances, your sanity, and everything else gets "shaken" by the Lord. Whatever remains, will only be what is part of His new plan for your life. How Do I Know If I’m In It? Hopefully this list below will provide you with a simple guide to be able to clearly determine whether you are actually in the wilderness, or whether you are just having a bad decade. But if you are in fact in the wilderness, then the following signs and symptoms that I describe below should be somewhat familiar to you. These are the signs: 1. Everything in your life suddenly seems like you've lost normal control of it. You might feel like there is an unseen force that is resisting or blocking your usual efforts to make the regular decisions you used to be able to make in your life without much of a problem. This includes where you work, your relationships, where you live, what you own, what you can or cannot do, and what or whom you are normally responsible for. You may find yourself getting very frustrated, annoyed, and frightened during this time as you are blocked from calling the normal shots in your life like you once were able to easily do. 2. The grace is gone. The normal grace (divine assistance) to succeed and progress in your life is suddenly missing. It's like the car just ran out of gas, and the only way you can make it go forward is to push it yourself. Before, God may have allowed you to choose, and He gave you the strength and ability to be part of that relationship, church, place of ministry, or job. But now you feel like a stranger, where before you used to feel like you fit and had a place with that certain person or group. During this time, you may only have what or whom God wants in your life because He wants as few distractions as possible while He is changing you in the wilderness. 3. The old unhealed areas of pain, and sin problems you used to keep fairly buried or under control are suddenly coming to the surface full force. And you don't seem to have the usual ability you used to have to ease the pain or keep yourself from sinning in that area. You may find yourself finally grieving over a loss, or traumatic event that you had long

since buried, but has been secretly sapping your strength for many years. Plus, if you have practiced any secret sin habit, you may suddenly have less self-control over it, and you will most likely be getting caught much more easily, like someone or something is supernaturally causing it. Your hidden problem will be exposed to everyone so that you will be forced to face it and receive God’s to help to finally be free from it. 4. You have a sense of being pulled away from the world, and into an intensive time of introspection, study, prayer, and just spending time alone with God. Your normal attachments to the world’s obligations suddenly have no support from God and you now live fairly off the grid. It's almost like driving on a highway and all of the sudden your car takes an exit and stays parked in a secret spot while you sit and watch all the other cars buzz by. You may feel like a ghost that is still living in a body during this time, and whoever you used to be doesn't exist anymore. Your old life is gone, and the road that was before you has ended and you're not really sure what to do, or where to go next. 5. Your finances dry up except for the bare essentials. All of the sudden, it gets very difficult to pay your bills, almost to the point where you are beginning to wonder if you are going to end up living in the woods, or whether you will even survive at all. The regular money you used to have to pay your normal bills suddenly gets dried up except for what is actually needed for your basic survival. It's like the depression of 1929 just came to you personally, and you are wondering what in the world's going on. You may find yourself going to food banks for the first time, or having people give you money to get by. This may vary a bit if you have kids, but it will still be some slim pickings for a while. You learn to live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God for everything in your life and all other previous means of support or direction is now very limited. There are other signs and symptoms to being in the wilderness, but these are the five basic signs that should tip you off as to whether you are actually in the wilderness or not. If you don't see most of these things happening in your life then chances are that you are not in the wilderness but just going through a trial or you are just having a tough time with life for some other reason. Rest assured though, if you are a true Christian then you can expect God to lead you through His wilderness boot camp at some point. It is time for the Bride to make herself ready and nobody will be left out.
REV 19:7

Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.

A Brand New Life

My dear one, you have lived a certain way for a very long time in a wilderness type setting and now you have reached the end of this long process of change and things feel very dead and desolate to you, but I am about to give you a brand new life. I am the God of springtime and I cause what looked dead to suddenly have new and fresh life and I can do the same thing with your life. You see things through your own ability to change things which has nothing to do with My ability to change things. I am going to be giving you fresh and new assignments that will inspire you and give your fresh zeal to go forward. I am going to be visiting you and filling you with a fresh infilling and anointing of My Spirit that will make your spirit enter a springtime of your soul. This is a day of fresh and new things my child so look to what I can do rather than what you cannot do. Though things have been a certain way for a very long time dear one they are about to change, and all that was old will be replaced with the new!

A New Blessing Comes My dear one, I have seen you grieving over some of the sacrifices you have made for Me because now you realize that some of them are permanent and they will not be returned to you in the way that you wanted. But you must know My love that I saw all of this beforehand and it does not affect My plans to bless and use you in this world. I know your heart was deeply set on having your blessing fulfilled the way you wanted it to be, but I also know what is really best for you and others involved in your blessing. There has been a sharp contrast between your life and those around you where you think you look like a failure and this is just not true. Success in My kingdom and success in the world is vastly different. My goal has been to change and heal your heart so that I could greatly use you in the earth. If I had given you some of the same blessings that you see others have it would have just distracted and slowed down the progress I needed to make in you. I know it has been a long time but change is here. Although I did bless Job with more children and things that he lost he was still not given back the original ones and he still missed them at times. Your life was shut down long ago so that I could prepare you for My power and the great harvest, but that day is ending now and I am granting you brand new life. The blessing that I give you in place of what you feel you lost will be much more satisfying and wonderful than you can imagine. Trust in My love and faithfulness to you because a new blessing comes.

A New Door Will Appear

My dear one, you have waited for a long time now and you have faithfully walked through each door that I presented to you. But those doors were only temporary avenues to accomplish my purposes, they were never meant to lead you very far away from your place of training and preparation. Now you have reached a place of true readiness to go forward so a new larger door is about to appear that will lead you into a place of major change where your whole life will be different in just about every way. You have now ended this phase of your walk with Me and you are about to begin a new leg of the journey that I have called you to travel. Though you have ended the old thing, you have not yet entered the new thing, so try to be patient and just know that you have not gotten off course, you are just in a time of transition. Sometimes I will allow a space of time to exist between the old and new so that once I bring the new there will be no wanting to run back to the old. Now you are truly ready for the new. You are a new wineskin that is truly ready for new wine so get ready to be poured into until you are overflowing. I will be sending you to many people and sending many people to you in order for My power and miracles to be brought forth so that many would believe in My name and be saved. No matter how many old doors led to only short paths this new door will lead to a very long new path. I have done everything to build your faith so now My precious child expect your new door to appear very soon.

A New Foundation My dear one, I have seen you grieving and lamenting over your old life and how it appears that you have accomplished so little on the outside, but I would tell you this day My love that you do not fully see all the good and necessary changes I have made on the inside. I allowed the visible house of your life to crumble so that I could fix and repair the foundation that it stood upon. Now you stand on a new foundation. Before we began you did not see all of the cracks and damage that had been done to the old foundation of your life, so I had to shut everything down to show you so that you could fully appreciate the need to change. You do not realize how much I have built Myself in you and how much of the old damage has now been repaired. Now you stand ready for Me to build upon the new foundation that's been created in your life. I realize My love that the evil one has been tempting you to focus upon the rubble of your old life that lies around you, but I would call you to look down and see the new foundation you are now standing upon. Do not entertain the lies that say I do not care about you or want to bless you, because I surely do. Continue to keep your faith and focus upon Me and do not doubt Me, for you now stand on a glorious new foundation.

A New Phase My dear one, for many years now you have been in a training, healing, serving, learning, and growing phase of your life, but now you are about to step into a brand new phase of your life that you have never experienced before. This new phase will dominate your life until you see Me face to face. This new phase you are soon entering will be walking in My power and in the greater spiritual works meant to bring in this last harvest of souls in these last days. You have wondered why your life has been so different from many others around you, and it has been to prepare you for this power phase of your life. There is a great accountability and level of responsibility that is required for those who will consistently walk in My power, so I begin preparing and shaping their hearts at a very early age for this. All of the sacrifices and restrictions you have experienced in your life will pay off, and you will be so glad for it. I have called you to step into complete repentance, complete obedience, and complete holiness, My dear one, so take this step now and do not waste any time, because the time is short to qualify for what I will do next in the earth. Come to me and seek Me in prayer and I will be found by you, because now you have given Me all of your heart and life. Get excited My love, for this new phase of your life is about to begin, and you will not be disappointed.

A New Road Begins My dear one, you are at the end of the road after a very long leg of your journey, and although you may feel very broken, spent, and weary right now, I am coming with new life and fresh strength to begin a new road that is about to appear. This new road will not be like the old road you are leaving, but do not forget all that you have learned from your journey on the old road because it will help you to make proper decisions in the days just ahead. You had to complete the old road first in order to begin the new one. The evil one has been tempting you to leave your post right now and to go back and try to rebuild your old life because nothing ever seems to be happening for you. But understand My love that I cannot build on a foundation until it is completely sound and repaired from any damage that could cause what I build on it to collapse. You must remain at your post and just know that although you do not understand what I am doing, I do, and I know that all this hard work will lead you to My power and blessing.

This new road has many new and wonderful miracles waiting for you. These mighty miracles will be things you have long waited for, and some of them will leave you with your mouth hanging open because you will even be surprised at what I do. Know this dear one, that I greatly love My children and I long to bless them all the time, but I am limited by what is healthy for them and for those around them, so I wait just like you would wait for your child to grow up so that they can be responsible with what I give. Right now you are seeing your used up self, you feel old and finished, but you must understand that I am the God of new life and it does not matter how you feel right now, it only matters what I am able to do to restore and refresh you. Do not give up or try to go back right now dear one because you are sitting at the finish line and you just need to stand up and walk across it. Trust in My love and do not wait until I move to praise Me, for just as I was with you on your old road, so will I be with you on this new one.

A Season Of Many Releases My dear one, for a short while now you have been in a season of many changes, but now you will be entering a season of many new and exciting releases that will reinvigorate and restore you in many ways. I will be releasing many things in heaven, and many things in the earth in order to accomplish My good will for mankind, and to harvest the souls of those who would respond to My calling. Though you thought your life was over, it will now begin again. I will in the days ahead be releasing you from certain things that you have been involved in for a while now, and I will also be releasing My power to heal and perform miracles at the same time. I will be revealing new paths to you that were right in front of you but were hidden until you were ready to walk in them. Many of the things I now do will astonish you because they will be things that come completely from Me alone, and not things that you worked for. Give Me this day My dear one your full obedience and make a complete commitment to walk in consistent righteousness from now on. You must never again return to those things which brought you death before, and you must now walk fully only in those things that bring you life. This is your day to receive some of your reward, but some things I will do simply because I love you. So My dear one, expect to walk in a season of many releases now.

A Stable Foundation

My dear one, I want to comfort you this day with the knowledge that all I have been trying to do for you, is to create a stable foundation for your life so that I can build very high upon you, and flow through you with My power. You are not cursed or thought of as less valuable by Me just because your circumstances are much more restricted than that of those around you. My heart has always just been to help you by stripping away the old house that rested on top of your damaged foundation, and then by repairing all the cracks in that foundation. There is no need to look at the other houses that are standing around your bare foundation My love, because I have caused your foundation to go much deeper, and the end result will be a much taller building later on. Plus those other houses you have focused on have cracks and damage in their foundations, just like yours did. Once I see a consistent obedience and that the cracks are truly repaired, I will begin to build a beautiful new house on your finished foundation. If I built on a damaged foundation, the great weight of that home would destroy it. Help Me dear one to put the finishing touches on your foundation, and try not to be sad or discouraged just because you are weary at the end of it all. Come to Me and let Me refresh and restore you, rather than complaining that you do not have a house upon your foundation like others do. Once I begin to flow through you with My mighty power, many people will be inspecting your foundation, so I just want it to be right, especially for your sake. So trust Me My love and just know that My heart all along has only been to give you a stable foundation.

A True Overcomer My dear one, you have had a difficult and challenging life full of seeming denials and disadvantages compared to other people, and lately you have been looking at your life and feeling like you have accomplished very little. But I would tell you this day My love that what I have been developing in you inside is much more valuable than what you could have accomplished on the outside. You see, I have helped you in life and I have caused you to be an overcomer with a wealth of experience and faith that I can use greatly to help many others. You have been given great spiritual riches where many other people are spiritually poor. I have shaped My heart in you and that is priceless. Now the deep foundation is complete in you and I can build the high building I have planned to build through you. Though your life seems empty and broken I have caused you to overcome all past pain and sin and you will be used mightily to testify and help many others who need the same help that I gave you. Rise up this day My love from your death bed and realize that it is time for a miraculous resurrection in which I will live through you. Do not see your life as less than other peoples lives because it is what is done in the human heart that really counts and what will last.

So do not grieve over what you do not see in your life, but rather rejoice that you are a true overcomer.

Always Mix It With My Love My dear one, there will be many busy days ahead that will involve many different people. Some of these people will be nice and they will add to your strength and your ability to do my will, other people will not be so nice and they can drain you of your strength and have the effect of hindering your progress if you let them. But I would call you to mix everything you do in the days ahead with My love because my love is the foundation for all that happens in My kingdom. When you walk in my love with everyone you will always do things from the right motives and you will never need to figure out how to treat each person, it will just flow from you naturally and effortlessly. Do the works that I call you to do and flow with My Spirit and My love. Allow other people to do their part and do not try to accomplish your work or theirs by the power of your flesh. You will know when you are in your flesh when you lose My peace and strength, and your ability to do the work will suddenly seem missing. You must stay filled up with My love and you do this by spending daily intimate personal time with Me and by letting Me fill you afresh with My power and virtue. I have told you that My yoke is light and that My burden is easy so do not bother trying to add things to the load I give you. Staying obedient and filled is more important than staying busy. Remember My servants Mary and Martha and how each of them tried to serve Me in different ways. You will receive your strength to serve by sitting at my feet, and then your work will not seem so draining. What can you really give people beyond what I give you anyway? Nothing lasting. I operate a kingdom that runs on My love and My power even in the midst of turmoil, so walk in My love and stay strong. I am the Vine so receive my daily nourishment in order to bear fruit. No matter what you do, who I ask you to help, or how they might treat you, always mix what I call you to do with My love and you will stay filled and full of everything you need to do what I call you to do.

Be Chosen My dear one, as I have said in My word, many are called, but few are chosen. Things like sin, idols, unbelief, unforgiveness, and other things prevent some of My called children from maturing and overcoming, but I have worked very closely with you and I know that you can be one of

those that are not just called, but indeed chosen to be used in My great harvest. Lay aside now all that has hindered you from before, and break away from everything that has prevented you from being chosen in the past. This is a new day with new opportunities to be obedient to Me, but know this, the time has come where all must decide whether they will be chosen or not, and you must make the firm and full decision right now to be chosen. Look no longer to the past or to what is behind, but look only to the present and to all that is possible to those who will live fully obedient to Me. You have the potential my dear one to not only be called, but to be chosen as well, so take the final steps necessary to qualify for this status in My kingdom. You will not be sorry if you do, so My love, be one of My chosen.

Be Earnest And Repent My precious child, the day has come where you must completely set yourself apart and walk fully obedient before Me. If you fully repent then you will be greatly blessed, but if you persist in rebelling against Me, then you will face a more severe correction than you have ever experienced before. I realize that this is a more serious word than usual My love, but the days ahead will be perilous, so My people must learn to walk in complete obedience, or I will have no choice but to correct them along with all the others who walk in disobedience. Even as My people were corrected in the days of Ananias and Sapphira, so the day has come once again for a more severe correction in My house. Do not be made an example of what happens to the disobedient My love, but rather be an example of those who fully repent and then walk in My full power and blessing in these last days. The day has come where My people must learn to walk fully in the ways of My kingdom, so make the choice today to turn away from all darkness for good this time, and to walk totally in My holiness and light. I have given you all the time, revelation, and understanding that you have needed in order to repent, and I have been very patient with you throughout all these years. I have shown you much grace when you sinned, but the day has come where you must indeed repent, or face the consequences of those who stubbornly choose sin over obedience. I would call you this day to choose which side of the camp you will stand on. Obedience or disobedience. Be on the obedient side and be blessed and leave the side of the disobedient who will be punished. You have made so much progress already My love, so do not take this as just a critical or condemning word, but rather I am admonishing you to make a full and lasting commitment to walk in complete obedience, rather

than just being mostly obedient but yet still reserving a few private sin idols that you run to when things get tough. Even My people in the land of Canaan destroyed most of the idol shrines of the land, but they still left a few of them up in the high places. Be like My servant Josiah and tear down all of the high places in your life. I will have a pure and holy Bride in these last days who will walk in My full power and love, and no longer will I tolerate any sin, idolatry, or continuous disobedience in My people. You can either believe me now, repent, and be greatly blessed, or you will soon see that I am not exaggerating in the slightest, and be counted with those who continually break My laws. My heart is to bless you, not correct you, so choose obedience now. Be earnest and repent My love, and if you do, you will receive My blessing and power, and avoid any further correction.

Believe Again! My dear one, you have reached the very threshold of My promise being fulfilled in your life, but now you have become too afraid to believe again because there has been so many times that you thought it would happen, but it didn't. I would tell you this day My love not to be afraid to believe again, because My words always come to pass when the time is right, and when the person I am blessing is fully prepared to receive what I want to give them. There is no safety or blessing in doubt My dear one, even though you think it will protect you from being hurt again if you just push it all away. Even Abraham and Sarah were greatly tested because the fulfillment of their promise seemed to take forever, but they hung on until the very day that their promise was staring back at them. You too must hang on even if you are afraid to, because you will need what I am going to do for you in order to fulfill your call. Rejoice this day My love, because you are not My slave, you are My precious child. But because you are My child, I am very careful not to bring things into your life until you are truly ready. You know much better now just how what I do through you can affect other people's lives for the good and bad depending on how you use it. So decide today My love to believe again and to walk forward out of your cave of doubt. Believe, and I will indeed move.

Believe In My Goodness My dear one, I have seen your discouragement and disillusionment lately, and I have felt your pain and disappointment, and heard your words of

questioning My goodness. I would tell you this day child to trust Me all the way to the end of this. My people in the wilderness long ago had a hard time trusting Me because first they were slaves all of their lives, and then they faced the hardships of the wilderness which made them easy prey for the evil one to sow discord and discontentment in their hearts. They chose to grumble, complain, and accuse Me of wrongdoing, when all I was trying to do all along was to bless and help them. I realize My dear one that your life has seen less blessing than most other people around you, but it is no different of a life than I gave many people who have done great things for Me throughout history. When I call someone I begin to shape their hearts very early in life, and yes there is a contrast between their lives and the lives of those around them. But you must trust in My ultimate good, and that even though you have not seen much of My favor and blessing yet, it doesn't mean that things will be like this forever. I have planned to bless and use you in a great way from the very beginning, so do not lose hope now at the very end. The choice is yours My love, will you trust Me to the very end, or will you give up and give in to hopelessness and despair? Get up this day from your bed of mourning, grieving, and crying, and dry your tears. You have seen all of the good things I have done for you on the inside to prepare you, so trust that My motives are to bless you on the outside as well. I know that you just need to know this day that I love you, and that I value you like I do My other children. Settle things in your heart this day to serve and trust in Me all the way to the end of this My love, and believe in My goodness and desire to bless and use you in your life.

Come Closer My dear one, I have spent years repairing the foundation of your life by giving you revelations of the truths of My kingdom. I have taken you up higher and allowed you to see My kingdom more clearly, and now you know that the ways of this world and the things that people pursue in life are not as relevant or important as you had believed. Now you have reached a place where you have stepped away from the world, and you are longing to step closer to Me and to the realm that is truly your real home. I want to encourage you this day My love to indeed come closer, for I am here waiting for you. You now stand on the firm foundation of truth and righteousness that I have built in you, so what I can do in your life will not be so limited. Now you are ready to come up higher, and ready to go deeper, than you have ever gone before. Now what you long for is not only what I can do for you, now you just long for Me. And I also long for you, because it has been Me all along leading you here and creating this hunger inside of you to know and see Me as I truly am. I hear you knocking at My door right now and I

want you to know that I will indeed open it up for you to come in, so do not give up. You have climbed a very high mountain day by day throughout these long years of preparation, but know this day that it is I who sits at the top of this mountain waiting for you to come and fellowship with Me. Come and seek Me in prayer and be willing to wait before Me longer and I will indeed reveal Myself to you. This was the purpose of My creating you, so that you would know Me and walk with Me even as Adam walked and talked with Me in the garden. So My love, I beckon to you to come closer for the way is not shut to you. The door to My home is wide open so come now and enter in.

Command It To Go! My dear one, you are facing some serious problems right now and you have been crying out to Me and begging me to come and help you, but I would tell you this day to command this problem to go and you will be free. I have given you My authority to command all that is not of My kingdom to go but you must rise up in faith and do it. I know how desperate your situation and need is right now but I am trying to help you to stand up and step into the authority I have given you to receive what you need in life. Though your faith seems weak right now I would tell you to stand and to command this problem to go, rather than laying down and giving up. It doesn't matter how many times you have tried to command it to go in the past for I am doing new things in My people right now and you are ready to move up to a higher level of operating in My kingdom. If you lack faith and strength then ask Me for it and I will grant it to you. So My child I would tell you once again to stand up and command this problem to go!

Complete Deliverance My dear one, I know that you have prayed for deliverance from your problem but now things seem to be drastically worse and you are perplexed as to why this is taking place. You see My dear child, when you release control of your problem over to Me I know exactly what needs to happen in order for your problem to totally get fixed and what changes need to happen in your heart for you to completely be free for good. The reason you have not been able to get free is because you have been hanging onto your problem and because of that your will is in the way and the solution to your problem will be limited to your choices. I know what needs to really happen to change you so I will allow things to get so

extreme that you will indeed be willing to fully let go of it for good. I always do things to create permanent change, not just temporary fixes. I know that you are frightened right now because you do not feel in control, but isn't that the problem in itself? You do not fully trust Me so you are constantly wrestling for control over your life with Me and thus limiting the amount of help that I can give you. Let go this day My love and trust in My leadership and you will be fully free this time. This is your day for complete deliverance so let go and trust Me to totally set you free.

Critical Juncture My dear one, you have reached a critical juncture in your walk with Me where you may be tempted with depression, discouragement, and unbelief, because it seems like nothing is happening in your life right now, and that it is too late for you. Evil spirits have been trying to exploit this time of transition in your life to create doubt in your heart concerning My faithfulness, but you must reject these lies and continue to trust in My love no matter what you do or do not see happening in your life right now. Even as Abraham and Sarah were given a promise for a son they were still tempted later in life to doubt Me when the promise didn't come at the time that they thought it should. But nevertheless I was faithful to them and I will be faithful to you in just the same way. Guard your heart and mind with My word and remember My promise to never leave or forsake you. Right now you will have to fight to hang on to my promises just like Abraham did, so be found trusting and not doubting when I fulfill My words. My words are faithful and true and those who do not doubt them are blessed. I know you are weary of believing for things that never seem to happen, but you must learn to trust in who I AM, and not just in what I do for you. My timing is perfect. Come and seek me at this difficult time and listen closely for My voice. Worship Me right now even though you do not feel like it and you will break through your clouds of doubt and enter My realm of joy. So My love, continue to trust in Me at this critical juncture.

"Do Not Be Afraid, Only Believe" My precious child, some of my most effective trials come at some of your weakest and most vulnerable times. They come at times when it looks like all all is lost and that I have failed you, but I would say to you this day, "Do not be afraid, only believe". Believe that I am the God that can bring new life out of apparent death and that although you may not understand why something bad seems to happen, that I can bring ultimate good out of it, which is the growing and development of your faith in Me.

Remember in My word when the rich man's daughter died, or when I allowed the storm to look like it was going to swamp the boat that had my disciples in it? These things were allowed to happen so that My power and glory could be displayed in these situations, and so that their faith in Me could be increased by the miracle that I did for them. I brought that man's daughter back to life and I calmed the stormy sea just when it looked like all was lost. Do you think that your current situation is so different? You are standing at the threshold of a glorious time of restoration, joy, and harvest in the kingdom, but right now you are facing what appears to be an impossible situation where it looks like I have abandoned you. Do you honestly think that I would abandon one that I love so much as you? I definitely would not my love. I would call you this day to have faith in this dark hour and to trust in who I AM. Remember all that I have done for you and my constant faithfulness and mercy to you over the years. This is your day to stand my child, not a day to sit or to turn back in despair, doubt, or discouragement. You are My child and I expect you to act like My child by having faith in me when things look their darkest. Remember all the great compassion and mercy I showed you when I saved you, and how I have lovingly cared for you over the years. Why would I leave you now in your day of greatest need? Again I would say, I would not. Put on your armor this day and get ready for battle, for this is a day of victory, and not of defeat. Again I say to you my dear one, "Do not be afraid, only believe", and you will surely see my salvation, blessing, and glory in this situation.

Do not be dismayed I know you have seen the evil things that have been taking place in the Earth, and you have seen evil men apparently succeed in their evil plans. I have watched your eyes widen, and your mouth drop open as you viewed it. But I would say to you this day; "Do not be dismayed, or fearful because of evil men, and their evil deeds". Not even a molecule can move without my knowledge. I am aware of all things great and small. When a righteous nation rejects Me, and turns away from Me, I allow my protection to be lifted just enough to cause them to turn back to Me. But remember, I do not utterly forsake them; I still control what happens, and I am ready to receive any nation that humbly turns back to Me in true repentance. I will surely help them, and rescue them. I only allow enough trouble, to help them to see their need for Me; I provoke them to repent and return to Me. My intention is always redemption, remember that. I will do whatever is necessary to help a nation, or just one person to repent. My plans are perfectly thought out, and I know the outcome of each decision I make. I also care about those who would commit evil; some

are truly evil, but most of them are just ignorant, and deceived by the evil one. They are sheep that need the Great Shepherd. I want all people to come to know Me. "All People, All People, All People!". I know how to move upon a nation, or even one person that cries out to me for revival. I have surely heard your prayers and groanings to see revival, within yourself, your family, your nation, and the whole world. My Great Harvest has already begun, and I would call you to allow Me to finish preparing you completely, so that I can use you to help the greatest amount of people in this Harvest. Live completely and consistently in holiness, walk as I walk, and do as I do. Do not compare yourself with others, but rather compare yourself with Me; I am your Father. There is no time to waste, things are moving forward rapidly. I rejoice in giving you all the good things you need to succeed. I would call you to pray for those who commit such evil, so that I can help them, and save them. Pray, Pray, Pray! Bring your fear and anger to My alter, and allow Me to replace that hurt with My love. How can you help them with such pain inside your heart? Come to Me, and let Me heal your wounded heart. Ask Me to fill you anew with My Love, and My Spirit. I love them, as I love you. You were once lost, even as they are lost now. I can save them, just as I saved you; believe this. As I once had mercy upon you, I would call you to have mercy upon them. Who else will? Trust in Me, that I AM fully in control of everything, and that everything I do, is for the benefit of the individual, and mankind as a whole. Trust in My power and sovereignty; Trust in My good intentions; Trust in My great love and approval for you. I am with you, and I am working in the earth to bring salvation to all. All. Trust in Me, and do not regard the evil deeds, that evil men do. Do not be dismayed by evil, but rather, let Me use you to create good. I am coming soon, so be very courageous, and do not fear.

"Do Not Fear, You Will Cross Safely" My dear child, you have come to the edge of your promise land but now you are facing some obstacles that seem to block your path forward. I would tell you this day that just as I cleared the way for my people to cross the Jordan river safely into their promised land, so I will miraculously clear away what blocks you from going forward into all that I have promised you. Only know this my dear one, I still require you to continue to trust Me in this difficult hour and to continue to have faith in Me and to stay the course no matter what you might see challenging you right now. Have I not carried you safely thus far? Have I not fed you day after day? Yes, indeed I have and I will continue to do so. My faithfulness does not change just because your life does.

I know that you are weary right now and that you feel like you don't have even one more "trust" left inside you, but I would call you to receive My faith this day and My strength this day. I would call you to put on My armor and to receive My battle plan for the road ahead. Your strength lies in Me alone so take courage this day and receive fresh faith and strength from Me. Come before Me in your quiet place and let Me calm the turmoil and fear you feel inside you. I will be faithful to you no matter what you face my love and I am stretching your faith at a time when you feel like you don't have any left. Put your shoes on and be ready to cross as I tell you to, for surely I will clear the way before you and great joy awaits all those who do not give up in this final hour.

Do Not Trust In What You See, Trust Only In Me My dear one, I realize that your circumstances have gotten worse and not better lately, and because you are weary you have been tempted to just give up your hope and go back to find some other way to make your life work again. But you must know that the evil one has come in like a flood lately just before I move in order to try to discourage you and drive you into despair. I would tell you this day My love, do not trust in what you see, trust only in Me! I am never limited by how bad things may get. Do not give up your faith and trust just before My hand is ready to move on your behalf My dear one. I have been well aware of all these other things that are important to you, and those things are very important to Me as well. I am also well aware of all that you have sacrificed to follow Me. I do not keep slaves in My kingdom, but rather loving servants, so do not think that all I care about is what I want you to do for Me. I have felt all your heartaches, and I have heard each sigh and cry that you have made. This is a day when My people need to praise, worship, and thank Me no matter how bad or hopeless things may appear, and I will do mighty miracles for you if you do. I made the whole universe, so do not think that your problems are beyond my ability to fix them. But the development of your faith is what I have been working on for so long and not these other things. I had to remove every distraction from your life in order for you to focus only upon learning, growing, and repenting of all that limited you before. Try to just understand that it has been your spiritual growth and maturity that has been the most important thing during these recent years. These other things had to be set aside for a season until you were completely ready. You are so close to the end of your preparation now dear one, so do not give up or give in to depression or despair. I will do miracles for you no matter how bad things look or get. So do not trust in what you see,

trust only in Me, and I will fulfill every good promise that I have made to you.

Doors of Decision While in prayer I saw a great crowd of people mulling around one door that said "Complete Obedience" on it. These people were holding a book in their hands that said "God's Word" so I believe these people were Christians. There was an outer half circle around these Christians made up of people and demons that knew these Christians and they were calling out to them to come away from the door, and to not go through the door of complete obedience. The crowd seemed to get more and more agitated as these Christians one by one all began to run through the door of complete obedience. On the other side of the door of complete obedience were many angels instructing people to go through a whole new set of doors labeled "Divine Opportunity" and they each one went through the door assigned to them. As everyone filtered through their doors of divine opportunity they all led to a vast harvest field full of what looked like huge supernatural vegetables and they all began to harvest. Jesus stood on a high rock above the field giving instructions to the many angels that were flying over the harvest field and they in turn gave His instructions to those who were working in the field. A great bounty was harvested and brought to Jesus up rows in large carts. This is what the Lord then spoke to my heart after seeing this vision: "My child, walk through the door of complete obedience now so that I can lead you through to My divine opportunities to be placed into this great harvest of souls in the earth. Do not hesitate or delay any longer, nor listen to the Enemy or those he speaks through that would try to hinder you. Great breakthrough and blessing await all those who make the firm and final decision to walk through My door of complete obedience".

Embrace Your Future My dear one, I had you deal with your past in order so that you could come to terms with it, let it go, and then move forward. I wanted to make sure that things were finally settled so that you could move ahead into your future and commit your heart and life fully to the new things I want to bring into your life. I want your focus to be on the here and now, and not on the painful dark things that have held you captive from your past. It is time for new joy, not for old sorrow, so do not lay down in your past

anymore because only darkness and death remains there. If you remain there you will also die, so you must get up and start walking forward into My light, and into new life, and new happiness. Why hang onto your past?, what lies there is only an illusion because those things are nothing more than a memory, they have no real life in them anymore. Those things that you have clung to from your past that I still want to keep in your life are actually waiting for you ahead not behind, and they will meet you as you step forward. My heart was never to take things from you to make you sad, but rather to take you aside and change and heal you so that I could give you many things to make you happy. So my child, step forward into My light, into life, and embrace your future.

Face to Face My obedient servant, you have been faithful to minister to everyone that I have asked you to, and you diligently learned how to minister and fellowship with other people electronically through the Internet. This has been a good benefit for everyone and it has helped you through your wilderness time to remain fruitful. It has also helped you to become more connected to other people who are in the same situation as you are. But now my love, I will be shifting you to more of a face to face type of ministry where I will flow through you in power and many people locally will find My salvation and miracles through you. You will also be traveling more and you will be connected to people face to face there that will be brought together for ministry to distribute My power and resources to the needy, and to live together as one large spiritual family. You and I will also be having more of a face to face relationship as you learn how to better connect and communicate with Me through intimate prayer. You will be working with My servants the angels who will help you to do My will in this harvest. You have longed to have a face to face relationship with Me because I have longed for that with you. Live holy, for your life and ministry are about to become much more face to face.

Fall In! My dear one, the call has gone out throughout all of My kingdom for all of My faithful soldiers to fall into their assigned places for immediate service in My great harvest. It is time to drop everything that you have been doing and to come without hesitation or distraction into My holy formation made up of those who are truly ready for battle. You must be completely committed to letting go of all sin, and to walking in full obedience.

I know you have heard My call and you are now making your way into the ranks, but you must hurry for this call is very urgent. All those who come with a full and complete commitment will experience my best. My power will be poured out upon all who fully and completely give themselves over for absolute service in this harvest. There is no time left to delay or prepare, so come right now because the door will soon be closed. It is time to leave behind all that hinders and distracts, and time to commit yourself fully to the great day of battle that is at hand. There is a vast harvest to reap and all who come to me now without any conditions or limitations will be used in a great way. Do not delay in running to your place in the ranks for there is no time left to wait. So My love come and fall in, for My power will flow through all who take their proper place.

Finishing Touches My dear child, I know that you are anxious to move forward, but I want you to know that I am accomplishing critical finishing touches in you right now so that you are fully ready to move on. These last few things that must change are important because if you cannot do the right thing now, then you won't be able to do the right thing later on. I have tested you in these areas many times and each time you have made a little more progress. Now you have reached a place where you must do the right thing the first time and every time, rather than lapsing into old behavior just because it seems more familiar and easier to do. This is your day to stand, and you will indeed stand. A finishing touch means that you are almost finished, so don't give up or digress back into error just because you get frustrated. You have lived for many years in the school of My Spirit so it has been a lot of difficult work everyday, but when the work is done you will be glad when you see how all these changes benefit you later on. You have reached the threshold where you are leaving your wilderness time and you are stepping into your promised land, but you are not going forward alone. There are many people who have gone through the same things that you have so that they could be healthy for you. So be patient and allow Me to put My finishing touches upon you.

Forward March My dear one, can you sense a change in the spirit realm? I am sending out my Spirit and my angels to begin new works and to set My people in order by rank and file to get ready to march forward together as one. This is a day where everything will be made new and all that is of the past will be

no more. This is a day of many new connections and new people being joined together to plunder the camp of the enemy. This is a day of great abundance and joy as My power and My word act like a sickle to bring in the sheaves of souls that have been made ripe and ready to be harvested. Though you have seen few changes for so long, now you will see many changes happening at once, some of which will feel uncomfortable to you at first, but know that I am with you and I will lead you forward with each step that you take. Stay in the rank that I set you in, and stay in step with the others that march around you. The unity of My spirit will call out the cadence and orders to know which way to walk. Keep your eyes straight ahead and do not allow old things to distract you or to break your stride. Rejoice my child, for this is your day to rise up and march forward into your destiny.

Get Back Up! My dear one, you have taken some brave steps lately and you are breaking out of old things that have bound you, but you have also suffered some setbacks and the enemy of your soul is trying to discourage you and convince you to give up and stop trying to change. But I would tell you My child to get back up and try again because you are indeed making progress and you will get the victory this time if you try again. You do not know how close you are to complete victory My love and the enemy is afraid and on the run, so draw your sword now and pursue him until he is completely destroyed. I am calling you to walk in complete holiness and obedience and I will show forth My kingdom life through you. You will become an example to others that complete victory over sin and the flesh is possible through My grace and strength. What was in the past will be no more and you must not give in to what you see, but rather you must refuse to accept the lies and defeat any longer. You are My beloved child and you will conquer in My name, and the enemy is afraid of what I will do to him through you so he is trying to intimidate you. This is your day to succeed, not fail, so I would tell you again to get back up, try it again, and the victory will be yours this time.

Get Ready To Be Launched While in prayer the Lord showed me a large rocket rumbling on a launchpad and it looked like it was eager to be launched. The rocket finally took off and it flew until it appeared as though it was going to come down nose first into a large farming type of field. The field looked like it was at the end of it's growing cycle and that it was nearly ripe and ready

to be harvested. But there was still some brown patches from no rain and some produce that had not grown to maturity even though the others had. As the rocket came down the nose exploded with fire and people and the fire and the people landed all over the harvest field. As soon as the peoples feet touched the ground they were all very busy and the fire engulfed them like a suit but did not consume them. Wherever they went the produce was set on fire and brought to maturity and health and then harvested. The people had harvest bags full of produce when they reached the end of the field. These harvest bags looked like they were four stories high, if not more. That was the end of what I saw, and this is what the Lord then spoke to me. My child, you have been brought to a place of maturity and purity and I am about to empower you and to send you out into My harvest field. I realize that you do not feel very mature or pure right now, but I see you differently than you see yourself and your sanctification has been created by My work, so I know when you are truly ready. My grace will help you with these last few remaining things that need to be made whole. Get ready to be very busy because people are in great need of My power and glory and great will be the demand for it in these last days. There will be great opposition at times, but I do not want you to bear the weight of My work alone. Allow those whom I join you with to help you and do not try to do it all by yourself. Just keep following and obeying My words and daily directions like you learned to do in your wilderness time. I will also restore, bless, and heal you as I send you out and great and many will be the miracles you will experience in the days just ahead of you. Do not be afraid to step forward as I now begin to open new doors of opportunity for you. Great will be the abundance of your harvest. So My love get ready to be launched out because ready or not, your day has come, and you will indeed be given new marching orders very soon.

Give Them My Love My dear one, you have prayed for My power for many years now and so this is right because I have placed those desires within you, but what I want you to give people the most is My love. You see, all of My gifts work only with My love mixed in with them so always allow My love to flow through. When you truly love people with My love then they are attracted to Me, and not just to what I can do for them. When My love flows through you it will give you all the desire and energy that you need to serve others. Look at those you love already; you do the right things for them because you love and value them and you try to stop yourself from doing things that hurt them. It is good that you pray for My power, but I want you to remember first and foremost that My love and Spirit are what will draw all people to Me and save them.

Be of good cheer My dear one, for indeed My power is in fact coming to you and will flow through you to help many, but you have to want it for the right reasons. My power flows on My terms and in My timing in order to reveal My glory and to draw all those involved to My salvation. I have been reshaping your motives and purifying your heart so that all will be right. So once again My dear one, go forth and give them My love.

Hang On To My Promises My dear precious child, I gave you a number of promises as we set out on this long road together many years ago, and you have held on to these promises for a very long time even though many things have happened which have tempted you to let them go. But I would say to you this day to hang on to My promises, for surely they will happen soon enough. My words always come to pass for those who believe and do not doubt. Even as My servant Abraham waited for a very long time to see the fulfillment of My promises, he did not let go of them or Me. He cried out in anguish to Me and I heard him the very first time he prayed. I have also heard you the very first time you asked Me, and I granted this prayer long ago. I just had to prepare you to be able to receive this thing so that it would not harm you or others, or become an idol or burden to you. What you have sought cannot be accomplished in the natural. You have despaired when you saw each chance in the natural for your miracle to happen, but the timing was not yet. I saw your tears and I felt your pain and disappointment each time, but you see, My promises are fulfilled through faith and not through your ability or earthly plans or means. You had to understand this truth from your heart, and now you do. Rejoice My love, for great will be your joy in the day that I do all that I have said that I would do for you. Receive all that I have promised you My precious child, and know that I delight in blessing My children. As you now know, My blessing takes much preparation with many difficult trials and many deaths to the vision. But you must not be afraid to believe again, for what I have promised you will surely happen quite soon.

"Hang On To Your Faith!" My dear one, you are about to see the fulfillment of many promises that I gave you long ago, but the evil one is trying to tempt you right now to let go of your faith by pressuring you to compare your life to other peoples lives around you. This is a critical time to hang on to your faith and to not give up because your miracle is right at the door and you can trust in My great faithfulness and love for you no matter what you may see, think, or

feel. Comparing your life to other peoples lives around you will just cause you to lose your peace because I have deliberately dealt differently with you in order to prepare you for your calling which included many restrictions and hard trials. Just because I have limited your life in order to shape your heart does not mean that I do not want to bless you, or that I have forsaken you. Even my servants David and Joseph had lives that were very much different than those around them and they too were tempted to doubt Me, but they held on to their faith and were greatly blessed in the end by Me. I would call you today My loved one to hang on to your faith in just the same way and do not doubt that I want to bless you because I do. Continue to get rid of anything that blocks our fellowship and draw close to Me right now. I want to you to come closer right now and not further away, so hang on to your faith and be blessed.

Healing Is Coming My dear one, I placed My desire into your heart and gave you a word many years ago that I would one day flow through you with My power to heal the sick. This word is still alive and will in fact find its fulfillment in your life very soon. I know that right now you are also in need of healing, and I want you to know that healing is indeed coming for you, and through this miracle you will receive greater faith to pray for many others. You have been heavily restricted most of your life so that I could shape My heart in you and share my compassion with you for those that suffer, and I even used some of your problems to hobble you so that you would settle down and not be able to run off when things got tough. Now your preparation is complete and you will be fully restored and empowered in every way so that you can be totally ready for the work just ahead. Pray for all that I send to you and I will indeed heal them. Preach the great message of My salvation and kingdom to all who see, hear, and experience my power to heal. Trust that healing is coming for you very soon and that this is not your day to die, but rather your day to live and be healed so that many others might also be healed. Rise up this day My love and receive by faith the fulfillment of My words of healing for you. Honor and Blessing My dear faithful servant, I am well aware of the depleted state that you now exist in because of the wilderness. I know you feel broken and spent and too used up to ever be restored, but you are thinking in human terms. I am able to take your used up life and breath new life into every area that appears to be very dead and lifeless. I am able to take your apparent dishonor and shame and turn it into great honor and blessing.

You sacrificed your life when you went into the wilderness and now you know that that death is very real and very deep. You have lived like a ghost still in a body able to view your life passing by you but actually this was not death but rather transformation. Like the caterpillar you have stayed in a cocoon, but now you have been completely changed into a beautiful spiritual butterfly that will indeed fly and be shown off by Me. Though you have felt ugly, old, and used up, I can transform your life in a day and change everything. Have faith that I want to do this for you, not just for others, and that I am very aware of your suffering. You are not small, but rather you are spiritually tall. Did you honestly think that I would just leave you in your cave to die? I would not! Be obedient and take fresh hope for I will indeed give you honor and blessing very soon.

Honor For Disgrace My dear one, you have had to bear a lifetime of restriction and reproach, but the day has now come where I will trade your disgrace for honor, and your shame with favor. You must understand that these difficult circumstances were only allowed in your life in order to shape your heart and character into My heart and character so that I could help many people through you. I know how humbling this process has been for you, but it is only the truly humble that I exalt, because any pride left can spoil everything. I have heard your many sighs My love, and I have seen the many tears roll down your cheeks over the painful situation you have had to live in for so long, but I want you to know that I have not forgotten you, nor have I cursed or rejected you. What you have gone through is the same thing that many of My faithful servants throughout history have gone through to gain Me. There are many stories of faith yet to be added to My book, and in these last days you will see many mighty people of faith and valor. I will do all I that I have promised for you, and I will vindicate My work in your life before those who have wrongly judged and ridiculed you. Only be humble My dear one and show love and mercy where it would be easy to say I told you so. Use all that I bless you with to preach My gospel and to lead those in need to Me. Fear not, for you will not go forward in lack, but rather you will go forward full of every good thing that you need. Take new hope, for this is the day that I trade honor for disgrace in your life.

Humbled To Be Exalted My dear one, I have seen you grieving over your life because of how different it has been from most others people's lives and what you were

denied. But I would tell you this day that you were humbled in your life so that I could one day exalt you to a place of great service by Me to help many people just like My servant Joseph was. My servant Joseph suffered a lifetime of humiliation and rejection to prepare him for the great office he would one day occupy that would end up saving and helping many desperate and needy people. He bore great humiliation and reproach to do My will. So you too have lived a lifetime of restriction, rejection, and painful loss, but I would tell you that it is not because you are cursed, but rather because you are just being prepared to be raised up to serve at a high level. I have called you to walk in My power and in My blessing and these gifts require great humility and genuine submission to Me alone. Just because you have not yet seen my blessing does not mean that it will not come because it will indeed come very soon. Be encouraged this day My loved one and grieve no more, for you will soon rise from the dungeon to the throne room.

I Am Able to Keep and Restore You I have felt the sorrow and mourning in your heart, because you have said "I am too old now, and my life has been all used up in this wilderness, it is too late for me to ever be restored or used". I would tell you this day, that I am able to keep you, and restore you no matter how many years you have spent in this wilderness. And you will see, that your end, will be so much greater than anything you could have built through your own plans. I am even able to slow your aging and keep you fertile, even as Joshua and Caleb were kept young and strong through their long years in their wilderness time. I am also able to put lands and finances into your hands, that are already established. I am able to give you offspring, even as I did for Abraham and Sarah at their old age. I am able and willing to do for you, what I did for My servants of old who also placed their trust in Me. Know this day, that I am the God who is able to keep and sustain. I am the God who creates everything from nothing. Do not look for your answers through human ways, but rather look for your answers through My power, and My ways. Trust in My great love for you. Would you withhold any good thing from your children? I just had to grow you up first, so that you would be responsible, and have the right motives for receiving it all. So, know this day, that you are not too old, and you are not too broken or used up, for Me to restore and use in this harvest. These years you followed Me were not wasted in vain. I deliberately restricted you from advancing in the world, so you

need not feel guilty, or wonder if there was something more you should have done, but didn't. I understand all you have lost and sacrificed to follow Me, and also what you need to be restored. I AM the God who is able to keep and and restore. Now, trust Me to the end, no matter what.

I AM faithful to do all that I have promised My dear and faithful servant, you have waited long and you have sacrificed all to follow Me, and you did not even withhold your most precious things from Me when I asked them of you. Like My faithful servant Abraham who withheld nothing from My hand, you also brought your most precious things to My holy mountain and sacrificed them to Me. And even though you had tears in your eyes and a heavy heart, you still trusted Me and were obedient to give up everything in order to follow My calling. Now it has been a long while and like Sarah you have waited patiently, but also like her in your heart some doubt has been starting to creep in and create problems for you. Now because My grace and sense of presence has been decreased you have nothing but faith alone to hold onto, and that pleases Me because even now you have not let go of My promises, or stopped following Me. I have done this so that your faith would rest upon who I Am, rather than just in what I would or would not do for you. I would call you this day My love to rise up and put your faith back on for I am rising up and I am now moving on your behalf to bless and restore you. I have had everything carefully planned out from the beginning. It so pleases Me to bless you My love and I have just had to prepare you so that My blessing would not become a hindrance or distraction to you once you saw it manifest in the flesh. Now, I have purified your motives for wanting My blessing and and I have made you truly ready to receive it. Let go this day of looking at what I have done for others, and just know that you stand alone in My eyes ready to be blessed and restored by Me. You do not know or see all that I have to do to prepare My other servants for what I place into their hands. What I have called you to do has required a much deeper preparation, and a greater level of maturity. Know this, that I Am powerful and faithful in all I say and do. So trust Me this day My love to be faithful to do all that I have promised I would do for you.

"I am Here Waiting For You"

My dear precious child, I have seen you fretting and worrying about what you should do next and so far nothing seems to be working for you. You have gone from door to door trying to see if that is the right avenue to go forward, but none of them seem to be your way out. You have been crying out to Me wondering where I am and what you are supposed to do next and I would tell you now that there is indeed a door open for you where I will speak to you and that door is through intimate fellowship with Me. I would call you to come to Me in prayer and seek Me and you will find Me because I am here waiting for you already. Be fully obedient to what I have called you to repent of so that you will not be ashamed when you come before Me. You and I must develop a closer communication between us so that I can guide you in the challenging days ahead. I have planned many miracles and kingdom assignments for you so it is very important that you be able to be more closely and accurately led and directed by Me. You asked for My power long ago so that people would believe when you preached to them and I have been preparing you for many years for this very thing. My power and gifts flow through obedience and through daily fellowship with Me so be willing to come and develop a closer relationship with Me. I know that you have tried to do this in the past but this is a new day and a new place in Me. If you will come before Me daily I will indeed speak to you very clearly because I am here waiting for you now.

I Am Perfecting You

So many are feeling down. It is then that they are more susceptible to the attacks of the enemy. If they would only call out to Me, I would come to them and take away their pain. I long to hold them close to My breast. They lash out at others, even those close to them, because they are in despair, and hurting, and it causes them to see things in a negative manner. They lash out at others, because they don't know how to handle their pain. Forgive readily, My children. Don't hold onto the pain and hurt, but call out to Me, and I will hold you close, and wipe away your tears. Trust Me with your loved ones. Live peacefully with everyone to the best of your ability. Remember that I am your strength. Watch your words, as those who are hurting will take things the wrong way. If they would only look up, they would see that I am all they need. I have given you joy and peace. I am your strong tower and refuge. You have tried Me, and found Me faithful. I alone give you abundant life. I alone am your healer. Praise Me. Talk to Me often, for I am right here with you. I know your every desire,

your every need. I am perfecting you daily, shaping you into My image. I love you, My child. You are precious to Me. Keep on keeping on. Persevere, for I have given you the keys of the kingdom. Walk in My joy.

"I Am Still With You" My dear one, I have seen you worrying about many things these days, and because you have not felt My presence as much as usual lately, you have been wondering whether I am still with you as much as before, and I would tell you this day, "I am still with you". I have just been weening you off of some of the usual outside things so that you will begin to come closer and seek Me on the inside through a much deeper and more intimate time of prayer. Like My friend Martha in My word, you have allowed yourself to become very distracted by many outside problems and needs, but also like her, the answer to all that you seek can be found while sitting at My feet. I understand that you have not found prayer that rewarding in the past, but I want to lead you into a more intimate and satisfying way of communicating with Me where you can hear My voice more clearly and distinguish My voice from all others. I would call you this day to cease your striving and struggling, and to just come before Me and pray. Worship Me and be willing to listen more and I will indeed speak to you. Allow Me to cleanse you from all sin, and repent of anything that could block your fellowship with Me. My heart is to restore and empower you, so come with just the desire of knowing Me more and I will meet with you. So doubt no longer My love, because I am still very much with you.

"I Am Who I Said I Am" My dear one, you have reached a place in the road where you feel like you are ready to drop and that I have abandoned you. I have not. I am still with you just as much now as ever even though you do not see Me doing what you think I should be doing right now. I would tell you this day to continue to put your trust in Me because I am still completely aware of your needs and problems and they will be taken care of at the proper time in the proper way. Always know my love that I Am who I said I am. Like John the Baptist in prison, his circumstances were screaming at him to doubt me and the evil one whispered in his ear that I had abandoned him, but I sent people back to tell him that I am who I said I am, and this day I am doing the same thing for you. You must hang on to who you know that I Am this day my dear one for surely you will be released from your

prison of pain and need very soon so hang on and do not give up or give in to sin. Know that I love you dearly and that help is on the way.

"I Just Can't Do This Anymore!" My dear one, I know that you are weary and I have heard you say "I just can't do this anymore!", but I would tell you this day to hang on because I will indeed be breaking through very soon on your behalf. This is a time where you will just have to trust in who I am alone because everything else around you will tell you to doubt and to give up. Even My servant Job went through such tests but He found strength in Me. Think back and remember all of the times that I have helped you. Did I give up on you then? No I didn't, so why would I give up on you now? I would not. Your faith must rest in my faithfulness and not in what I do or don't do for you. You must trust Me all of the time and not just part of it. When you are weary spend time with me rather than repeating what evil spirits are whispering into your ears and your faith will increase. Many wonderful and exciting things lay just ahead for you so continue to trust Me all the way up to their revealing rather than feeling ashamed that you grumbled before they came. I love you dearly and I am with you. I told you that I would never leave you and I will not. This is a new day for you My child and you are beginning a whole new exciting part of your life. Continue to trust in Me to the end and you will be blessed.

I Will Bless you Financially To my precious child in whom I delight and call "Friend". Over the years I have taught you much about walking in faith for all your needs by restricting you financially and by putting you into positions where you absolutely needed a miracle from me to meet your needs. I also taught you to receive from those with less than you, and to give to those with more than you, which created humility and exposed any hidden pride concerning your motives for giving and receiving. Although you got scared when I did not do some things in the way or the timing that you thought I should, you still persevered and determined to trust in me no matter what to wait upon me for my manna, and to not turn back to Egypt for your provision. Faith comes through need. Now we have entered into a new time and a new day where I am calling you to sow once again, for you are now entering into your promised land of abundance that I promised you so long ago, but you must be obedient and keep your eyes upon me as I bless and increase you financially. The day of just enough is over, and now I will give you more than enough to

live on and to meet the needs of others. I would call you to meet the needs of many in a time of soon coming famine just like my servant Joseph did in Egypt long ago. I would call you to make a place for all I will send to you and to not only meet their needs financially, but especially spiritually. The focus must remain upon me and the message that my kingdom and salvation have come for all people. It delights me to bless you my child and I will keep all the words and promises I have spoken to you so long ago. I do this not only to meet your needs, but also to vindicate you and to make you an example to many who want to receive from me. I will give you an increase and then see how you respond to it so that you have time to adjust to it, then I will give you more and more as you are obedient and responsible with what I place into your hands. Remember that all things come from my hand and I give them to whom I will. Freely you have received, so freely give. Remember the poor and needy and do not allow the wolves to devour that which I have entrusted to you. Allow yourself to believe again my child, and fan into flame the old promises I have given to you to bless you, because in not too many days you will see my miracles.

I Will Breathe New Life Into Your Vision My dear precious Child, I know you are weary, I know you feel like there is no strength or faith left in you to believe again in the words and vision I have spoken to you so long ago. I know you have seen many false starts, and then you see what little that seems to get built fly away before your disappointed eyes. You have become discouraged and despondent, and now you sit too weak to stand up even one more time. Now in your weakness and your inability, you will see that I am able to breathe new life into the vision that I have given you, and that there is nothing you can do in your own strength to ever create or generate what I have called you to do. You will see and believe that all your strength and all your ability comes only from My strength and My ability. Even as Joseph lay in the dark prison after so long, you too have waited in your time of loneliness and isolation, and you have said "what's the use in all this, it always comes to nothing", but I would tell you this day, that I have wrought a death in you, so that My new life can be breathed into you. And even as Joseph finally gave up his striving and surrendered to my sovereignty, now you have come to the end of your striving and plans. Now you will see that like Joseph, My power and words, can also take you from the prison to the palace, in just a day. I would call you this day, to trust in who I Am, and in My heart of love. I Am the same God that sought you out and saved you. I Am the same God that filled you with My Spirit, and set you before my people to minister My words to them. I Am the same God who has never left your side, not even for a second, during this long period of purification, and transformation.

I have pruned you down to the roots, so that I could heal you at the root level. I needed every area of your heart and life examined and exposed, so that there would be no area or place of weakness that the enemy could exploit once I began to move you forward in greater power and anointing. Even as Joseph trusted in who I Am, I want you to trust that I am able to bring new life into that which seems as though it is utterly dead. Do not look at the desolation of your wilderness, but rather look at what I have changed in you without the normal distractions of life. Look at the stability of character you now have, and look at My heart that has been fully formed in you. Even now, My breath is blowing, and what you thought was dead will now thrive with new life. Even now, new rains of my Spirit are beginning to fall upon the dry ground you thought was too far gone to ever bear fruit again. You are My secret weapon hidden for this day and this hour, trust in Me, and know that you have overcome through My subtle daily workings.

"I Will Revive Your Old Gift" My dear one, for many years I had you operate in a certain gift, but then I had you lay this gift down for a season while I purified, prepared, and pruned you to be able to bear more and better fruit. Although you did not understand why all of the sudden you did not feel like operating in your old familiar gift, you did in fact obey and lay it down, but now the day has come to revive this old gift, so be willing to take it back up again. I will not only be reviving this old gift, but I will also enhance it far beyond what it was before, because now you have completed all the work necessary on the foundation of your life for me to bring a greater anointing upon it. I will reveal Myself through your gift like never before, and heaven will pour through it upon the earth around everyone near it. This is what you have longed for because this is what I have longed for through you. Do not be afraid to pick this old gift back up again, because I will pour a fresh grace upon it as you do. I will fellowship closely with you through your gift and we will walk in a much greater intimacy together because a much wider channel of communication has now been opened up for you. So My love, take up your old gift and I will breathe new life into it. I will revive your old gift and make it new and wonderful for all to enjoy.

"I Will Vindicate You" My dear child, you have reached your day of restoration and blessing and I will be vindicating the work that I have done in your life before those who have wrongly judged and accused you. But I want you to remember this day my dear one that it is I who will vindicate you and that you should not

rise up in your own power or strength to try to justify yourself in front of your accusers. I would call you to wait and be silent even though you could stand up on your own behalf and say that I told you so. Allow Me to be the one who makes things right and remain in a state of love, humility, and grace. Even My servant Joseph waited for Me to vindicate him even though he had the power to go and vindicate himself before his brothers, and I would call you to do the same thing this day. Remember that I even used what Joseph's brothers did to lead him into his destiny. There have been some people in your past that although they judged and rejected you unfairly, it pushed you toward the calling you now stand in today. So My love, be humble and gracious when I vindicate you and forgive your accusers. I have seen your sacrifice and obedience and now I will allow all to see it.

"It's Closer Than You Think" My dear child, you have waited long and endured much to prepare for what I wanted to give you and do through you, and now you stand at the threshold of its revealing. I know that you are afraid to believe even one more time because you are afraid of being disappointed, but I would tell you this day that your blessing is closer than you think. Though you cannot see it, it is standing right in front of you and will soon appear so be ready and believing when your day of breakthrough arrives, for it is right at your door. This blessing will change everything about your life in a moment and one day your life will be one way, and the next day it will all be different. You will remember this old life but it will be like a dream to you compared to the many new things I will be doing. Be of good cheer this day My child and be depressed no more, for I am the God of sudden changes, and suddenly everything is about to change for you for the better. Only remember all that I have taught you and continue to be humble and obedient

"It's Not Over Yet!" My dear one, I know you are going through a difficult time right now and you are being tempted to compare your life to other peoples lives and look at what other people do or do not have compared to you, but I would tell you this day my child, "It's not over yet!" You have been speaking of things as though they are finished and they are not. Just because you have not broken though to the other side do not think that it will never happen because it will. But you must hang on right now and not give up!

Your life has been very different from other peoples lives so it is a mistake to compare yourself to others. You have been set apart and like Abraham and Sarah you have walked by faith and followed a course that I have set you on. You have a greater blessing than other people so do not allow the lies of the evil one to lead you into doubt and depression. Praise and give thanks to Me and you will come out of this dark time as you reaffirm your trust in Me and hang on to everything I have told you. You are on the verge of the greatest breakthrough in your life My love and just because someone digs a big long tunnel doesn't mean that they give up just before they finally break through to the other side. Just a few more strikes with the pick and you will see daylight. Your joy in breaking through to your blessing will be much greater than the gloom you are now in. Get up my love and push through to the other side! Your greatest victory comes when you absolutely refuse to give in to defeat!

It's Time for Great Battle and Abundant Harvest My dear one, you have labored hard over the years allowing me to change you and to prepare you for both battle and harvest, and behold that day has come for not just you, but for all of my Body. I place now My sword in one of your hands, and My sickle in the other, and I would tell you this day to go forth into battle to conquer and to reap My harvest at the same time. This is the day where all that you have sown will come back to you many fold and everywhere you look there will be both battle and harvest and you will marvel at the great victories and super-abundance of fruit that will come. I have given you My rod of authority to lead and to conquer and accomplish all that I command you to do in the earth, so go forth and do not be afraid or dismayed. I am looking over My battle plans right now and I am assigning my children places to conquer and to reap at the same time. I am delighted to bring you into this time of great victory and abundant harvest my child, and I have been preparing you all of your life for this very moment in history. Though you may feel weary and spent, though you may not feel ready, I will do and be all that you need to do and be in this great day. But I would admonish you my dear one to keep your robe extra clean in this day, for many more eyes will be watching you and many more ears will be listening to you. I would call you to walk as one with your brothers and sisters and to let Me fill you up with My fresh love and power every day. You must come to Me as your Commander and Lord of the Harvest every day for fresh orders and fresh instructions as to how to proceed. Rejoice and be glad my cherished one, for this is the day of great victory and great harvest, and everywhere you look you will see great success in all that you do.

It's Time To Change My dear one, you have reached the point in your wilderness where many things will be changing at once and it is important that you see and understand that these changes are coming from Me. You have become familiar and satisfied with the little you have survived on in the wilderness, but now it is time to fight for and receive the fruit and blessings of your promised land. It is time to let go of the security you cling to with the lesser, and to embrace the greater that I want to give you through change. As I lead you forward I will remove the support that was there for the old and pour fresh grace upon the new, so be looking for both to start happening at once. Let go of your preconceived notions about how you think I will do things and just trust in My goodness. Everything that I do is always for someones good and never for their bad, so even if you do not understand a change that is taking place do not just reject it, but rather pray about it and follow My peace. I tell you again My love, it's time to change.

"It's Your Time" My dear one, you have been stuck with an impossible problem now for many years and you have had to bear much reproach because of people judging you and telling you that this problem is somehow all you fault. I would tell you this day My loved one that this problem is not your fault and that it is your time to get this reproach off of your back and to finally get free. This challenge was only allowed in your life to teach you and to humble you so that you would have compassion toward others with this similar problem, it was never meant as a punishment. The evil one has tried to exploit this area to condemn you, but I am going to use this very problem as a foundation for a ministry that helps many others who are trapped in it just like you were to get free. So do not fear my loved one, for even though this problem has hung around your neck like a millstone for so many years, I am now going to turn it into a badge of honor and send you out with My power to set other people free who are crying out to Me for deliverance just like you were for so many years. Rejoice this day and believe Me, for your time has finally come to be set free from this heavy burden and you will live free of it for good. I will also vindicate you before the very people that judged and ridiculed you. I have kept a close eye on you all of these years and I have heard every prayer that you prayed for deliverance. So though it has seemed like forever, your time has fully come to be set free and what was once your shame will now become your fame.

Just Because I Love You My dear one, I am going to be blessing you and performing great miracles in your life in the days just ahead, and I wanted you to know beforehand that I do these things not because of your efforts or righteousness, but simply because I love you. Also I want you to know that I am not limited in any way by your age, your problems, or any other circumstance of your life, and I can do things simply because I choose to do so. There are no restrictions for Me, so expect Me to do not just the ordinary, but the very extraordinary. I can make your life anything I want it to be, so nothing is ever too late. I delight in blessing you dear one, and even as I have had you bear the reproaches of going through the humiliating circumstances of the wilderness in front of many people that misjudged you in various ways, so I also enjoy blessing you in front of those same people so that I can honor you and show Myself faithful to all who wait for My help. Your very reproaches will be turned into great testimonies after I act on your behalf, and what was once an embarrassing burden to bear, will now become a great trophy of My goodness and faithfulness to all those who serve Me with a whole heart. I have heard you say in your heart "All I ever get are prophetic words, but nothing ever seems to happen". I give you prophetic words to encourage you in the truths that I have spoken so that you will continue to embrace My truth in challenging times. My words are just as true now as they were when I first spoke them, but sometimes there is much preparation involved before I do something in your life that will require great responsibility and accountability on your part. So know that the miracles I now do are just because I love you, and know also that I am not limited in what I can do for you.

Just You And Me My dear one, all of your life you have been connected to and dependent upon certain people that I have used to help you, or used you to help them. But now you have reached a place of being a mature servant of the kingdom, and I want you to know and understand that all you need in life is Me alone, and together we can accomplish all that needs to be done. If I add to, or take away people from your life it is always for a good reason, and some of these people you will want to hang onto, and others you will want to get away from, but you must accept those I send, and also those whom I take away, because My focus will always be to help you, and never to hurt you. Your spiritual growth will involve many different people.

So as you now take your first steps into this last great harvest of souls in the earth, I want you to keep in mind that it is just you and Me and whoever else I allow to be part of your life. Hold on to people very loosely, but hang on to Me very tightly, because I alone died for you and I alone am everything you will ever need. So remember My love, it is just you and Me.

Keep Sailing Straight My dear one, you have reached a place in your journey where you cannot see what lies ahead of you, and I would call you this day to just keep walking forward and I will guide your steps to the right place that you need to arrive at next. Though you may feel blind right now with little direction, I can see where you are at and where you need to go, so trust Me to lead you even though you cannot currently see the path ahead. There will be times just like this where you will feel little leading or direction to know what to do next, but I will still call you to just walk in obedience and to trust in Me to be your eyes and ears when yours don't seem to be working. You have grown much in faith over the years, but there will still be times when I will test and purify your faith to make sure that it is still Me, and not your own understanding that you are trusting in. Like a ship that enters the fog I would call you to just keep sailing straight right now and to trust Me to be your compass when you cannot see the way forward. Do not drop anchor because you are making good progress even though you may not see it. I know the course for your long journey ahead and I will guide your voyage as you trust Me. So My love, just keep sailing straight and you will arrive safely at your next port.

Keep Trusting Me My dear one, you have been working and waiting for some things from Me, and you have been tempted to give up because you have not seen them come to pass for so long now. But I would tell you to keep trusting Me, and to not give up because your breakthrough will come very soon if you keep working and waiting patiently. My most precious gold comes only after much searching and digging, but you will soon find it. These times are like labor pains, and you will just have to keep pushing because in good time this thing will indeed be birthed into this world. Your promise is real and just like a human baby that you cannot see but still exists even before it is born, so your promise is just as real even though you have not seen it born yet. So keep looking to Me and it will come to pass because I have declared it would be so very very long ago.

You do not need to keep striving because I have heard you, and what I would require of you this day is just to fully repent, to fully forgive people, and to seek Me more in prayer so that you can learn to hear My voice better. It will be your full readiness and complete cooperation that opens the door for these miracles, not your worrying. So keep trusting Me and soon you will see the fulfillment of these long awaited promises.

Keep Your Hands On The Plow My dear one, for many years now we have been plowing up the field of your life and heart together, so that all that hinders and distracts in it can be removed and a great bumper crop of fruit can be grown upon it. But I know that you have become a bit more weary than usual lately, and I also know that you have been more tempted than usual to look back and possibly take your hands off of the plow and find something else to do with your life. I would tell you this day My love to keep plowing and looking forward. I want you to know My dear child, that I am and always have been very aware of all the challenges and problems that you have dealt with during this difficult time. I also know that these challenges have been quite severe at times, but this does not mean that I have forgotten or forsaken you in any way. Things had to be very limited during this time so that you would focus only upon preparing your field, and not on the usual cares of this world. Anything more added would have just slowed down your progress. I realize that you have had to watch many people and opportunities pass you by on the sides of your field, and some of these things were very important to you. But I also know that what I have planned for you ahead will be well worth it in the end, not only for you, but for many I want to help through you. Rather than focusing upon what you were denied, I want you to focus upon all of the good things that I have created in you and set you free from. These are eternal treasures that can never be taken from you. How many obstacles can we afford to leave in your field My love? If I rushed things and left them there it would not only hinder you later, but also anyone else who was working in your field. I am very thorough in what I do, so continue to be patient to the very end and you will be glad you did. It has been your spiritual development that has been most important all along. So rejoice, for a great crop will be grown on the field of your life. Keep your hands on the plow and looking forward, for soon you will be done.

Keep Your Peace

My dear one, very soon I will be doing many wonderful new miracles in your life and things will become very busy with many new people wanting to be joined to you. I would encourage you today to take things slowly and to keep your peace at all times. It will appear that you will have much more freedom to make decisions and to help many, but you must wait and be patient with each particular situation and allow Me to instruct you in what to do. The evil one pressures, but My directions come with peace. There will also be people that will come and try to distract and to steal what I have placed into your hands, but if you stay close to Me and spend time with Me every day you will have no problem identifying those whom I have given you and those who would hinder. Remember how Joshua was fooled by the Gibeonites and learn from it. Do not fear what you are about to face My loved one, because it is full of joy and blessing and I speak to you today to help you to make it through this time without suffering loss.

Let The Offense Go Now My dear one, you have held on to an old offense for far too long now and although you have made good progress in trying to let it go, you still keep thinking about it and allowing the pain, anger, and bitterness to flare up again. I would call you this day to let the wound go once and for all and to walk in the truth I have shown you concerning this matter. I saw what happened to you and I have also seen what you have done to other people, and yet I have forgiven you and even helped others to forgive your sin. When you hold on to an offense it defiles your heart and then My love cannot flow through you as easily. I would also call you this day My child to release all the anger you have carried against Me. The evil one has lied to you and told you that I don't really care about you and that I do not treat you right. Remember my love that I am the same God that sought you out and saved you in your dire state, so why would I want to mistreat you? You must trust in my goodness and let go of all these lies. This is your day to stand and to rise, and not a day to hang on to the pain of the past. It is time to come out of your prison of fear and unforgiveness and to walk forward in my love and mercy. Are you willing to let go of death and embrace life? I know that you want to. Only say the word and I will help you to do this. You cannot take your bitterness with you where I am leading you, so I would tell you again to release it and to walk forward with Me. Allow me to cover and heal your old wound My love and do not pick at it anymore. Your life begins anew when you choose to forgive.

Listen To My Voice My Child, do not believe the lies of the evil one. He has tried to tell you that you have made a grave mistake by allowing Me to take you into the wilderness. He has said that "You've wasted and ruined your life," that you are doomed, and that it is too late now to ever restore all that has been dismantled. He spoke these same words to My children in their tents in the wilderness long ago, and some of them wept in the night, and I listened to their cries. They believed these lies that demons magnified, and bitterly grumbled against Me. I do not lead someone into the wilderness to die, but to live, and be prepared to do great things on the Earth for My purposes and glory. I transform you in the wilderness so that I can trust you with My power and resources, so that you can help others selflessly, and powerfully. I am the God of restoration, and although in your mind, you have wondered how things could ever be restored after such apparent decimation, you will see that My restoration and blessings are supernatural, and will give you an end much greater than what you would have built on your own back in Egypt. Take heart, and remember how I have kept you miraculously in this wilderness. I pulled you out of the world and fed you with My ravens and secret waters. You asked Me for faith, so I put you into a position where you could no longer meet your own needs in the natural, and you were forced to trust Me. You did not go hungry, and you did not end up homeless. I have cared for you. Trust Me, that if I lead you into the wilderness that I have planned to lead you out. The time you spend in the wilderness is up to you. If you cooperate wholeheartedly with My Spirit, your time will be short. Do not let the lies of the evil one enter your heart. Listen only to My voice. Remember all the great things I have done for you in the past, and how I brought you up out of Egypt and out of it's bondage and turmoil. You have entered My rest, so continue to walk in what I have taught you. Continue to trust Me, even though your circumstances seem to look like you are a failure. I shut down the outside, so that I can work on the inside. You needed to be as undistracted as possible, so that I could bring you through this time of transformation much more quickly. I love you; My words always give you peace and hope. Any other word has not come from Me. You know My voice; listen to it, and keep your faith as I lead you into your new place of service and blessing. Look For The New

My dear one, I want you to begin to look ahead of you toward the many new things that I want to bring into your life. For many years now, you have kept your focus on a lot of the old things that you lost from your past during your long years of wilderness. But now it is critical that you let all of the past go, and that you allow Me to bring many new things into your life. I know that many of these old things from your past are very important to you, and I have not forgotten about even one of these very valuable things. But you have held on to these old things so tightly that it could hinder the new things from coming to you. Let all of these old things go now, and trust Me to bring back whatever is truly part your wonderful new future. Expect more changes to continue My dear one, because I need to break you out of many old ways, and old familiar things that you have found much security in. The wilderness was never meant to be a long term home, it was only intended to be a place of change. You like the Israelites must now abandon your wilderness and enter into your promised land ministry. You have done your best to make peace with your past, and that is enough, but now you must leave all of these old things in my hands only, and allow me to decide what can return. You are now stepping into a brand new phase of your life My love, so look no longer to what is behind, but rather keep your eyes focused ahead of you toward the new things I will bring.

My Hand Will Move My dear one, for many years now you have sought My face while living on only the bare minimum, but now you have reached a day where you will see not only My face but also My hand. You have been faithful to do what I have asked you to do every day but you have been severely depleted in the process and now you need to be restored and replenished. You have been very patient and long-suffering and now your day of blessing and abundance has come. You have been faithful with little so now you will be given much so that you can truly abound in every good work that I give you to do. But I would caution you this day My love to be thankful for what I have given you, rather than complaining about what it seems that you have been denied. You have entered a dangerous time where you will have to guard your heart, mind, and mouth from entertaining the lies of the evil one. Even though it seems like you have less than others you are actually rich because I have given you the secrets of the Kingdom which are true and lasting treasures. So speak only words of thanksgiving and do not

grumble dear one, for My hand will surely move on your behalf in not too many days.

My Will Is Indeed To Bless You My dear one, I have seen you question whether or not My heart is to bless you in life, and I want to make things absolutely clear this day that My will is indeed to bless you, and never to curse you. You have often compared your life to the lives of others around you and supposed that you were somehow cursed and not loved and valued by Me as much as them, but that is simply just not true. I have dealt with you differently from the very beginning because I wanted to shape your heart into one that would love like Mine does, and one that would walk in all of My ways, and not just some of them. I would call you this day dear one, to turn away from all habits of disobedience that have limited Me from releasing My full blessing and power upon your life. What good would it do Me to take the restrictions away from your life and bless you if you are not yet ready to walk in full obedience before Me? What I have planned for you to do in the harvest will require full obedience, not just partial obedience. If you continue to walk in disobedience simply because you mistakenly think you are already cursed, you will only be creating the very problem that you are trying to avoid. Trust and obey My love. This is a day when all of My people will be required to repent of all disobedience and walk completely righteous before Me. No person will escape My day of correction and holiness, so make the decision today to fully cooperate with what I require of you, and forsake all that has been hindering you from moving ahead. I will help you as you take each step forward to get rid of all remaining hindrances, but you must go beyond mere words, and take firm action. I can only steer a moving object. My day of blessing has come My love, so rise up this day and just know that My will is indeed to bless you.

Neither One Of Us Has Failed My dear one, you have experienced some severe spiritual warfare lately where you have become discouraged because the evil one has been whispering into your ear and telling you that both you and I have somehow failed because there has been so many perplexing situations that took place in your life that seemed to end in failure. This is simply not the case My love, and neither one of us has failed at all. Reject these lies and hang on to the truth that My plan will always lead to good and blessing in the end.

I have allowed some very extraordinary situations to take place in your life because you needed to be prepared for the most challenging time in history. Your life has not just been a series of failures, it has been a series of critical lessons meant to help develop your faith and to prepare you for your very demanding future calling. Many of My people throughout history have lived lives that didn't seem to make a lot of sense at the time, but I see all that needs to happen in someone's life to fully prepare them. If you read through to the end of many of My people's lives of faith they too doubted and questioned themselves and Me at different times, but also you can see in the end that neither I, nor they failed in any way. Many apparent failures are actually My plans for future successes through Me, so you can either choose to doubt My plans, or you can choose to continue to trust Me and see the great ending I have planned for you. Know this day My love, that neither one of us has failed, so trust Me to the very end.

Overdue Pregnancy My dear one, I know that you are feeling like the road you have been on for so long has ended and now you have run out of road and are aimlessly wondering around, but I would tell you this day to hang on because I will indeed lead you forward. You have been spiritually pregnant for many years with the promise and calling I have placed on your life but now it feels like the pregnancy is way overdue and you just want and need to have the baby born and I would say that your promise will indeed be birthed. You must remember that I only allow someone to become pregnant with something that can indeed be born. What you have been carrying for so long will not be aborted but will indeed find life in this world. Rather than thinking that this baby will never be born keep in mind that you are closer now than ever to its birth and like a normal birth its delivery will come suddenly when you do not expect it. Try to be patient in these last moments rather than complaining and it will make this last time more bearable. Though you feel that there is nothing left in you right now to hang on I would call you to come and seek Me. There is no need to flounder in despair when you can come and talk to Me and let Me tell you what is happening. Try not to take your frustrations out on others, but rather keep your peace if you are tempted to lash out. Read my word and worship Me and it will save you from getting into your flesh. I know you are weary of carrying this spiritual baby but your promise is not overdue and will be born.

Pass The Test Now My dear one, for many years now I have been working with you to show you some of the weak areas in your character and behavior that need to change. At first you thought that it was all just an attack from the evil one, but now you can see that there are in fact some legitimate problem areas that need to be corrected in your life. I have even used some people near you to help test you in order to give you the opportunity to learn to do the right thing. But I only allowed these things in order to truly help you. The day has now come My love for you to go forward and these weak areas can no longer just be set aside. I have sent yet another retest and you must now master this thing, take responsibility for your part in it, and do the right thing consistently, so that you can finally pass the test and go forward. As you can see now I am not going to budge concerning your being fully prepared, so the best thing that you can do is just respond consistently the right way when the test comes, and you will indeed pass it. Everything in My kingdom operates on the basic principle of love, and any thought, word, or action that takes place that is not mixed with My love is eventually addressed and transformed until it is. You have learned how to love those who love you, but there are still some that have not treated you right, so you do not show them love in return. In My kingdom we learn to show love to all people regardless of how they behave, and we always keep in mind that all people are at different stages of growth and maturity. You have made so much progress already My dear one, and I know that in your heart you just want to do the right thing and live fully obediently to Me. I know that you have used these wrong behaviors just to protect yourself, but that is a lie. I will protect you if you really need it. I have planned to use you in a mighty way so none of these shortcomings can remain. How many weak areas can you afford to take forward with you? This is your day to pass the test now My love, so pass it and let's move forward.

Prepare for Jericho My dear Child, you have done well in your time of preparation, and you kept your ears and heart open to My voice. No matter what was going on around you, or what people said to discourage you, you kept your focus on Me, and made consistent progress in your everyday growth. Now it is time to begin what I have prepared you for, but there are a few things that I need to tell you before we go forward, so that you can remain in Me, and bear good fruit.

I would call you this day, to walk in all that I that I have shown you, and to have stability and consistency in the good foundation I have built in you. We are going forward, and I am happy and pleased to do this, but I want you to do what is right and walk in truth, even when you feel weary, or tempted to sin. There will be many days up ahead that will be very busy, but you must remember that you will only remain strong during a day, if you spend good time with Me. I am sending you forward to your next assignment, and I want you to remember what happened in Jericho. They were obedient to My direction and they waited for My power to bring the victory. They marched as a group, and not as individuals. You need your Brothers and Sisters, to be able to win the victory. You cannot, and should not, try to do this alone. Keep your clothes clean, and keep your eyes and ears upon Me, and all the barriers ahead will fall. You will see temptations along the way, but I have already trained you how to make the right decisions. Trust me, and practice obedience. There is no room for disobedience in the great conquest I am calling you to, for your enemy will try to distract you will old temptations. Cry out to Me and others for help, if this happens, and do not try to beat it alone. I trained you to walk in truth in the wilderness, so that you could live that way everyday in the promised land. Your daily obedience will open the new doors to what I am calling you to do. I am leading you into abundance, and you will remember what it was like to live on manna, but you will not eat of it, anymore. I will heal and restore all that needs to be healed and restored. Though you have waited for so long, you will wait no longer. Open your heart and mind to the new things I will do, and be willing to let go of whatever old things that I say you are finished with. Look to Me. Do not be afraid, if I was with you in the wilderness, how much more will I be with you as you battle to possess the new land I am sending you to? I have great plans to use you. I seek to show my goodness to My creation through you, so that they would know Me, and be saved. Even as a good son, cares about what his father cares about, know this day, that My heart cares for all the heartbroken, fearful, and needy. I hear their cries, and send you to help them.

Prepare For Much Change My dear one, I am allowing your normal routine and schedule to be destabilized right now because I want you to prepare for many new changes that I am bringing into your life. There are certain things that I have supported in the past that I am no longer supporting because those

works are now complete and finished. So I need you to not be afraid to let go of the old ways and works so that the new can come in their place. Like a tree that gets pruned, so I am pruning your life right now and anything that has been sucking the strength and energy out of your day and producing little fruit, I will now cut off. Only you must not fight or wrestle with Me when I cut a branch off just because you like how it looks and have gotten used to it. I am pruning you so that you can bear a bumper crop of new fruit, more and better fruit than you can now imagine. Repent of everything that has been hindering your ability to be used by Me and let go of anything or anyone that I am finished with in your life. You have been faithful and obedient in the old things that I asked you to do, but those old things have gotten too familiar to you and could interfere with the many new things that I am bringing. So My love, let go of the old and embrace the new, for it is time to prepare for much change.

Prepare Yourself My dear one, I have had you in a waiting mode because you are about to receive a fresh outpouring of My Holy Spirit. Even as the disciples waited in the upper room for My Spirit to fall so you too have felt this same sense of anticipation and expectation. But I would call you this day to prepare yourself for My visitation by repenting of all sin and by forgiving everyone afresh for any offenses they have committed against you. Do not be weary in your waiting or allow old things to creep back in and cause problems for you because I do not want you to be ashamed in the day of My visitation. I am coming to anoint you with My power and authority to go into the world and reap this great harvest of souls. My Spirit will not delay so do not be caught unprepared or unaware for I will indeed come very soon and my power and blessing comes with Me.

Press Through! My dear loved one, I know that you feel weary and spent right now, but I would call you this day to press through no matter what you may feel, think, or see right now. Do not be afraid to push hard on these last few contractions to birth what I have called you to receive so many years ago. Many mothers feel their weariest in the end but the relief and joy that they experience when the baby is finally born is worth all the pain. You too have gone through a long spiritual pregnancy, but your due date has arrived.

Give no place to doubt, unbelief, or apathy right now because my eyes are upon you testing to see whether you will step forward when everything else around you tells you to give up and that you are wasting your time. You see, when I speak a thing into existence it lives from the moment I speak it and it is up to you to do the preparation to grow into receiving it. You are now ready to receive what I promised you so I would tell you again this day to press through my child, and you will soon dance with joy!

Remain Steadfast and Faithful My dear one, you may be experiencing some challenges in your relationships in the coming days and weeks, but rather than being quick to judge and rejecting those that offend you I would have you to remain steadfast and faithful to Me, and to those I have called you to walk with. In times past you have allowed yourself to become easily offended and you have closed yourself off from those that hurt you, but I need you to continue to be loving and accepting especially during times of testing and warfare. If someone offends you I want you to come to Me in prayer and let Me speak truth to you and give you understanding as to the source of the problem. Pray for those that say hurtful things, rather than talking to everyone else about what happened and being cool toward your offender. The days ahead will have many opportunities to become easily offended so I want you to learn to be more forgiving and to maintain a true love toward those that hurt you. This is a sign of maturity that you love those that hurt you. When challenges come I would call you to be patient, kind, and slow to anger, not to react impulsively when a misunderstanding arises. I am calling you up higher to a place where you have thicker skin when someone offends you. I would also call you to wait for Me to speak truth into your conflict, rather than just judging by what you see on the surface. By being steadfast and faithful during times of testing and difficulty you will maintain the unity and love that I have called you to walk in and show to everyone.

Remember Me, in the New Land You are Entering You have worked hard and done well, you did not withhold anything from My hand when I required it, although you were a little hesitant in letting a few of your more precious loves go, you still released them into My hand eventually. Now I in turn, will withhold no good thing from your hand. I will give you all that you need to take the land I am sending you to, only beware, you can only take this land by My plans, and by My power, and

remember that all I have taught you must be adhered to carefully. You must remember Me in all you do in this new place, for your victory only comes through Me. It is My joy to send you forward, I know you have waited long, and I have heard the sighs in your heart saying when God, when? Each year you asked Me, "Will it be this year Lord?", and you kept walking even though what you hoped would happen did not. But you saw with each passing year, that what you learned during that year that passed was critical to your success in your promised land. Will you continue to trust My timing, as you enter this new land? Trust Me that as I lead you forward, there is also a time line of things that must happen. You must not rush ahead, or lag behind, wait for My leading. There are many in this dark place I am sending you, that have cried out to Me for years, begging Me to send help, and also asking Me, when God, when? In this time, I have been preparing My servants, and I have been preparing a secret Army to go and meet the need. To go and push back and vanquish the darkness that has enslaved and harmed the people there. Do not be afraid, at what you see when you arrive, I have kept My eyes closely upon this place, and I have a strategy for victory. Some of you, will be released in the very city I have hidden you, out of your caves, you will come. Remember Me, and trust in Me as your Captain of Battle ahead, and you will see success after success.

Rescue Has Come My dear one, you have lived for many years like a castaway on a desert island and you have done your best to survive on what little you had to live on. But now I would tell you that you are finished with your time of just surviving and that rescue has come for you at last. I know you have reached the last of your strength and will to go on and I am sending you help in many forms to restore and heal you in every way you need. Remember all that I have accomplished while I had you taken away from normal life and how I have built a deep and sure foundation of character, obedience, and holiness in you. You will not only be rescued and restored, but you will also be greatly blessed with abundance to go and help many other weary people. So with the last of your strength my love stand up now for your day of survival is over and rescue has come.

Rest, Flow, and Abide

I have taught you how to rest, flow, and abide. To remain at peace and following My direction as it comes, rather than rushing around in your flesh doing things in your own strength and losing your peace. I restricted you so much, that you had no choice but to slow down, and learn to rest in Me for your direction and strength. This has served you well, and you have lived at peace and things have felt effortless, rather than burdensome to accomplish. Soon, I will progressively be removing some of these restrictions, and you will have more of an ability to return to striving if you choose, but I would call you to continue to do exactly what I have shown you to do. I wish you to remain at peace, and to remain doing only what I direct you to. This will be a great blessing to you in the days ahead. This will be a challenge at times, but you already know what to do. I always operate from a stance of peace. So, continue to rest, flow, and abide in Me, as you enter this new freedom I bring. Apart from Me, you cannot do anything that counts anyway. Remain doing what I have taught you to, and things will continue to go forward without having to re-learn old lessons. I love you, I trust you, and I believe in you. You are no longer a child, you are capable of walking in mature ways. You are held to My standards, you cannot do as others less mature do. Embrace the good work I have accomplished in you, and you will keep your peace. Remain submitted to My Spirit in all that you do, and you will keep your joy.

Restoration When I brought you into the wilderness, your outward life stopped, but your inward life is what I worked on, and changed. You seemed frozen in time outwardly, while you watched all others pass you by in their outward lives. You wondered, "How could I ever possibly be restored after such a long period of being kept at 'just enough' to survive." But you are thinking in human terms. My restoration is done by My Power, and it is supernatural, and will be a super restoration. You will end up much further outwardly in the end, than you would have been if I had let you keep building in your old life. Even as My servant Job was supernaturally restored, so will you be. But do not focus on what is outward, rather, focus on what I am requiring of you each day to finish on the inside. This was all done so that I could prepare you to help many, and so that I could trust you with My

power and resources to meet the needs of many. Like Joseph, you will help save and keep many in these last days.

Reversal of Fortune My dear one, you have seen some people in your life receive and wrongfully take what was rightfully yours, and you have suffered much loss for the sake of the call I have placed upon your life. But I would tell you today that there will now be a dramatic reversal of fortune where you will see some around you lose what they have been wrongfully keeping, and all they took will be given back to you. Your days of stripping, sacrificing, and being plundered are over and the tables will now be turned in your favor where you will now be the victor and no longer the vanquished. Things will be set right. But I would tell you this day my love not to gloat over the turnaround you will see happening in peoples lives around you, for even though I am blessing My people and correcting some others, I still do it to help people so pray for your enemies and those who have mistreated you in the past. My blessing will be vindication enough and some will come to you and apologize for their arrogant judgments and mistreatment of you. Be humble and forgiving even as I am humble and forgiving. I am pleased to make you the head and no longer the tail, so I say again get ready for a great reversal of fortune.

Right Where You Need To Be My dear one, I have seen you struggling and striving wanting to get somewhere different on the outside than where you are at right now. But I would tell you this day My love, that I have been needing for you to get somewhere different on the inside first so that I can take you to your new place on the outside. I know you are weary of all this wilderness training, but if these changes are not made first on the inside, it could spoil what I want to do through you later on the outside. You will make it through this. Even though you may feel like you are not accomplishing much these days, I am giving you daily revelation that is changing who you are from the inside out. You do not need to be somewhere else right now because you are still right where I need you to be. This long time of spiritual training will end one day, and you will be released into the things I have promised you. You gave Me permission to do this work many years ago, so I am just making sure that the changes in you are truly genuine and lasting.

You have been faithful and patient to allow Me to work in you so trust Me all the way through to the end, because there is an end. I did not make any wrong decisions in your past, so you need not keep second guessing where you should be right now. The evil one will try to steal your peace by telling you that you are off course, and that you have missed my direction somewhere along the line, but you haven't, so do not worry. Remember that I love you, and I will be faithful to keep you right where you need to be.

Salvation Explosion! My dear one, for many years now you have cried out to Me for certain people that you care about to get saved, and yet your words seem to bounce off of them and they did not respond to the message of the gospel. That is all about to change my dear one for now these very same people will be coming to you asking you how to become saved because I am moving upon the hearts of many people and I am bringing in the great harvest of souls in these last days. You will soon see a salvation explosion! You see, for many years I have been healing and preparing my Church. I have been pruning my people of all that does not bear fruit so that they could bear much better fruit. That is why you have not seen many salvation's is because I shut you down to fix your foundations so that you could stand when I built high upon you. Now you are ready to go forward into the harvest field and everywhere you look it will be harvest. In this harvest the fruit will even come looking for the harvester, so get ready to reap! Rejoice and be glad for I have not forgotten about all those people you love and I have heard each prayer you have prayed concerning them. I have not been ignoring you, I have just been changing you so that you could succeed in the great day of harvest. You see, I had to not only prepare you, but I had to prepare those to be saved as well. I tell you that the harvest is truly ripe, so go and reap for it will be everywhere you look. Get ready for a salvation explosion my dear one, because here it comes!

Set Your House In Order My dear one, you have felt an urge lately to set things in order in your life because you are being prepared for heaven to come to your home. Get rid of everything that offends and get excited because My presence is coming to dwell with you in a new and more powerful way. Even as a bird prepares its nest to receive the new, so I would call you to prepare your home and life to receive all the new things I want to bring you.

Total holiness is a must now and I am helping you to persevere until you are truly a complete overcomer in every area of your life. Do not give up or get discouraged if you experience a setback because there is a new grace being given to you right now to overcome all that has hindered and distracted you in your life. Forgive and pray for all you have not fully forgiven yet because you must fully forgive and repent to go forward. The grace is also changing upon your life right now where there will be little strength or desire for what is passing, but no strength or direction has yet been given for the new path. I would call you to seek Me My love in a new more intimate way because I desire for you to come closer to Me, and to know Me as I truly am. So My dear one, set your house and life in order and prepare to receive all the new things I am bringing.

Something Special My dear one, you have followed Me faithfully and you have sacrificed everything I have asked of you and withheld nothing from My hand, even though many of these things were very dear and precious to you. You have watched many pass you by and receive the normal blessings that people do in life, while you had to be denied in order to be prepared by Me. Now the day has come My dear one, for you to receive all that has been denied you, and more. Now the day has come where you will not only catch up with those who have passed you by, but you will greatly exceed them in many ways. Even like My servant Job, I will not only restore what you've lost, but I will give you much more than you lost, just to bless you. Do not be afraid to trust and believe in Me once again My love, because not one of My good words or promises will fail you. I know that it has been a very long time since you first received these old words and promises, but all I have spoken still remains. So though others have received what is normal in life, something very special has been reserved just for you.

Stand Firm! My dear one, you have reached a place where you will have to dig in and stand firm right now. My help is coming but you will have to be tough and stand your ground until relief arrives. I would call you to repeat my word to yourself as you sit in your foxhole and to not retreat no matter how fierce the battle rages in front of you. I am with you and I am fighting by your side, but I want to teach you to persevere until you see your breakthrough, rather than giving up or retreating. Good character is built

in some of most difficult of circumstances. Do not fear because you are guaranteed the victory. Try to remember that you are not alone dear one and that there are others who are in the battle with you and who are on your side. Do not turn on your fellow soldiers but rather use my love and word to help heal their wounds. Though this is a day of great battle we are advancing and taking ground that the enemy has long since held. This is a day of great victory for I am the Lord of the battle and my strategy will never fail you. Be prepared to jump out of your hole when I give the command for we have the enemy on the run. Remember, you were born for this day so stand firm and victory will come!

Stand Ready! My dear one, I have brought you to a place of full understanding and ability to repent, and to become completely prepared for all that I want to do through you, so I would call you this day to stand ready, and to delay no longer. This is your day to step out of old ways of sin that have hindered you in the past, and to step into new ways of obedience to go forward. Even as a soldier in the military must be ready for duty, and ready for inspection at all times, so you must now stand ready. For I am moving down the ranks of all of My soldiers inspecting them and seeing who is ready for duty and for war, and who is not. You are one of My soldiers who is ready to take your place in My formation of holiness and readiness. My sifting and shaking will only increase and intensify my dear one, so no one will escape this cleansing of My house. All people will be forced to choose in these last days which side they will fully stand on and you are now ready to make this choice today. So My love, come forward and stand ready for battle, for My great power and blessing await all who will do this.

Stay At Your Post My dear one, you have experienced some really harsh spiritual attacks lately, and because you are already weary from such a long wilderness journey you have been tempted to just give up and abandon your post. This attack will pass My love and you must continue to trust Me and to speak only what is right and true at this time. Steer away from all criticism, complaining, and condemnation right now, for it will only make your situation worse if you give into this temptation to grumble and cry in your tent.

Rather than attacking and threatening to break away from those I have joined you with, come together with them and pray to Me. Forgive and allow Me to freshen your faith right now. This is a time to draw closer to Me in faith, not further away in doubt. Rebuke the evil one and be willing to take the lead even while those around you are still faltering. Times like this will test your faith, but you must remember that this test comes just before a major breakthrough and many miracles take place in your life. I want you to walk fully in My kingdom right now and let go of the ways of the world. In My kingdom we walk in complete truth in every area of our lives. In My kingdom we walk in complete love one for another and we build up, rather than tearing down. In My kingdom we walk in the fullness of My power where there is no lack or need because My people walk in complete faith at all times. Stand up this day My love and stay at your post even though everything is telling you to abandon it, for I am surely with you.

Sudden Changes My dear one, for a very long time now you have gone through your daily routine of working on change, and doing what I call you to accomplish everyday. But lately, you have begun to give up hope and like Sarah laughing in her tent you have found it hard to believe anymore for old promises long since given to you. But I would call you this day to be like Abraham and to hang on to your promise forever if necessary, because many sudden changes are about to happen in your life and you can either be found believing or doubting when I come. You have done well and you have persevered for a very long time My dear one, but you have allowed weariness and unbelief to start creeping in and poisoning your heart and faith. Rouse yourself out of your apathy this day My love, because I am rising from my throne to come to you and I want you to be clothed and ready to meet with Me when I show up and begin knocking at your door. I have watched you closely each day My love, and I have been anxious to come and to bring much needed gifts and blessings in order to fully restore you. Even My servants Joseph, Mary, Hannah, and Elizabeth, went on with their daily routines for many years, and some of them despaired of ever seeing My promises to them fulfilled. But then I brought sudden changes to their lives that rolled away their reproaches and turned their life around in a day. This too will happen for you, so put your garments of faith back on and get ready to meet with Me. I will surely turn your sorrow and sadness into instant joy, and I delight in doing this for you. So My love, expect sudden changes to come very soon.

Take My Hand My precious child and friend, I have seen you fretting over many things about your life and your past and I would call you this day to stop your worrying and fretting and to do one thing; just take My hand. I want you to let go of all these other things that you can do nothing about and to do the one thing that you can do something about and that is to take My hand and allow Me to lead you forward into new good things. I am well aware of what has happened in the past and that you have been treated unfairly in certain situations, but the evil one is trying to distract you with these old things so that you cannot see the new things I want to do with you. I have many new things and new people that I want to join you with but you must let go of the old things first in order to take hold of them. Has your struggling and striving changed anything? Do you want to go on an adventure My child? Well I have an adventure waiting for you and all you have to do is to drop all of these other useless things and take My hand. Everything is prepared and ready to go and all you have to do is make the firm decision to step into the new and let the old go for good this time. Let go of your sin and the past for today is a new day of power and all you have to do is take My hand.

Take the Final Step My dear one, you have done well and you have made good progress in your growth and work of purification and healing. Many things have been accomplished over the years and now you stand at the day of graduation and promotion, but first you must take the final step into complete obedience in the last things that need to be changed. This is your day to take all that I have taught you and to put it into practice by letting go of all old idols of sin and by fully forgiving all who have wronged you in the past. You have clung to many things over the years because you were afraid and because you did not know how to fully trust in Me, but now you have reached a sure place of maturity and faith where you no longer need these things. Even little children are given much grace because of their ignorance and inexperience but sooner or later they must grow out of childish things and walk as an adult. You are no longer a spiritual child but rather you are a spiritual adult so the time has come for you to walk in it accordingly. Do not be afraid to take this final step My child, for many good and wonderful things await you on the other side of your choice to fully comply. I have done all of this work so that I could not only trust and bless you, but more importantly so that I could flow through you in power so

that many would believe and be saved. Do you remember many years ago when you asked for my power to help people? Well now you know what it takes to prepare for it. Go forward now and take the final step of obedience.

Tell Them The Truth My dear one, soon I will be sending you out and many people will be seeing and meeting you for the first time, and I would call you this day to be open and willing to tell people the truth about the good things I have done in your life. You see I found you when you were broken and helped you not only for yourself, but also so that I could use you to testify to this broken world of my desire and ability to help them as well. Do not be afraid to be open and vulnerable because I am with you and it only matters what I think about you. Nobody can take anything away from you that I have given you. When you become My servant you not only take on My blessing, but also My reproach, so there will always be people there to criticize you no matter what you do, or don't do. So do not shrink back in fear or be silent, because I Am with you. Remember that I love you so much and I approve of you. All of My children are at different places of growth and maturity and I see the finished person they will become. Accept yourself and also accept your brothers and sisters that are at different places of maturity and growth than you are at. Love and be humble. So I would tell you again My child, do not be afraid to tell people the truth about what I have done in your life.

The Breaking Point My dear one, you have reached a place where everything seems to be at its breaking point right now, but I want to encourage you today that I am the God who is able to fix what is broken and beyond normal repair. Though you see all around you destabilizing I want you to keep your eyes upon Me and know that no matter how out of control things may appear right now, I am still perfectly in control of all that is taking place in your life. As you keep your eyes upon Me, you will also keep your peace. Sometimes dear one, when I am about to do a miracle I allow things to become impossible so that all may know that I alone did the impossible in your midst and believe. But before I can do a miracle I must make sure things are truly impossible. Do not be alarmed if you do not have your normal strength or ability to keep things together right now because you are in a time of transition and many changes need to happen. So even though you are at your breaking point right now, keep trusting Me!

The Button Pushers While in meditation, the Holy Spirit showed me a man, he was handsome, muscular, with wavy hair, and looked like the perfect picture of a human. He had on a silk shirt and just gave a broad charismatic smile as I viewed him. All of the sudden, the silk shirt was ripped off his chest, and you could see all kinds of little buttons, kind of like the old time cash register buttons. People began to appear and push these little buttons, and the man kept trying to push them away, and cover the buttons back up with his hands, but there was just too many to cover with just two hands. There was one particular button that everyone seemed to want to push, and every time the man would get one person away from it, another was standing in line to push it again. The buttons seemed to be growing, and the man called out "Jesus, help me!". Jesus appeared and began to talk to the man about each button, and as the man kept his focus on the Lord, even though the people were still pushing the buttons, the buttons began to fall out, and there were little roots connected to the back of each button. The buttons just kept falling off, until it was no longer a big problem, or distraction for the man. Then Jesus handed him a new shirt, and on it said, humility, love, and grace. That was the end, then the Holy Spirit explained what I had seen to me. He said; I have stripped you of your normal beauty, and allowed all of your fears and character flaws to become exposed. I have also allowed people to come and trigger these problem areas off, so that you could see what is there, and your need to fix it, and call out to me for help. I already know what is there, but you had to see it, so that you would want to deal with it, and be rid of it once and for all. As you put your focus on the people triggering the problems, you lost your peace and strove in the flesh to protect yourself, and end it. But as you kept your focus on Me, and listened to what I told you to do to change, these trigger buttons have fallen off by the root, and will not grow back this time. Remember, that I have allowed all of this for your good, to help change you. I am not being cruel or sadistic as you have heard. I am doing this to make you healthy, you have asked to move in my power, and I am helping to eliminate any weak areas that the enemy might try to exploit, discredit, or hinder My power. Know that this situation will get better and better with time, and with each area that's resolved. I would call you this day, to surrender completely to My workings, and in doing this, you will accelerate this process of sanctification. Fighting Me, will just extend the process. Know that I love you, and I am working to help you to make yourself ready for all I have planned for you.

The Divine Waiting Room

While in prayer I saw what looked like a large waiting room and there were many people coming into this room through one door. As the people came into the room they instantly began looking for the door to the next room, but there was no way out yet. You could see that the people were getting more and more impatient as some were looking at their watch, others were tapping their feet and sighing, and others were throwing their arms up into the air in exasperation. Finally some people decided to try to go back through the door they came in by, but that was a one way door that you could only come in by, but not go back out through. Then as it seemed like things were at their breaking point I heard a voice in the room say "Be at peace, a new door is about to appear to you". The people then began to relax and settle down willing to wait as long as it would take. Just as they decided to relax, a new bright and shining door appeared on the other side of the room and the people all filtered through the new door into a room full of intense light and beauty. Then the Lord quickened this to me: My child, I have led you out of the old place that I have kept you at for many years, and into a new place of transition and waiting. You cannot go back because the door that leads back is closed to you, and you cannot go forward because the new door has not yet appeared. But I would tell you this day My precious one, that a new door is about to appear to you, so I would call you to be at peace right now and to just trust Me as you are waiting out this challenging time. Know that even though you do not see a way forward right now that I have it all planned out and you need not worry. Use this waiting time to grow closer to Me in prayer. I have much to tell you so come and let us fellowship together in a new more intimate way. You have graduated from what is behind and you will soon be commissioned into what is ahead, so do not lose heart or be discouraged. Keep your heart and mind on Me alone and this time of waiting will go much easier for you. Know that I am with you right now in your divine waiting room.

The Finish Line My dear one, I have had you running a long marathon of change and you have made good and steady progress. Now you are nearing the end of this part of your life and I am causing you to turn a corner and to see that the finish line is right in front of you. I am re-igniting your faith right now to help you to complete this course and to make it to the very end. Pick up the pace now and spend the last of your reserves to fully comply with the last few changes that I require of you to walk in complete obedience. All of this work was meant to change you on the inside while I had the outside shut down, but now since that change is mostly complete, you will start to see the outside swiftly moving forward again. Keep your eyes upon Me during these many miracles and changes and remember the weak areas I have shown you about yourself so that you will not fall, but stand

strong in the days ahead. This is not a time to sit down or to be distracted, it is a time to push forward until you cross the finish line completely. My blessing has indeed come for you, but remember that even My blessing can become a distraction to you if you allow it. Also keep in mind that there will be people that will be jealous of what I do for you. I did all this in you and for you so that I could help others through you. Although I bless you, this has all been about Me using you to bless others. Always keep that in mind in all you do for Me. Behold my love, the finish line is now in plain view so run to the very end and complete this race with joy.

The Fruits and the Roots While in prayer, I saw a vision. I saw a large tree, and on the trees branches I saw alot of fruit. Then, it was like my vision zoomed in on the branches and the fruit on each branch. On one branch, I saw large ripe fruit, and then on another branch right next to it, I saw what looked like diseased, damaged fruit. Then I saw Jesus dig down and expose the roots. He showed me good healthy roots, and right next to them, I saw what looked like rotten diseased roots. Each root seemed to be connected to a branch that produced either good or bad fruit depending on the condition of the root connected to it. Then the Lord explained what this all meant. "In your life, you have born much fruit, some of which has been good fruit, and some of which has been bad fruit. Deep within your heart, lies both good and bad roots, that have developed both good and bad behavior in your life. These good and bad roots, have existed side by side until now. My Word, and My Spirit both produce good fruit in your life as you have been obedient to them. But because you have suffered harm, and because lies have been sown into your mind and heart by evil, you have been damaged and need to be healed. I know you have not wanted the bad fruit, and that you have cried out to Me for help. I have come now, to set you free from these lies, and from this damage completely, and I have come to heal you from the pain of your past. Will you allow Me to expose the damaged roots of your heart to you? Will you allow My Truth to heal the lies that have stunted your growth for so long? Are you willing to cease to practice sin, as I now set you free from its power over you? Are you willing to be well? Are you willing to face your pain? Believe that I can accomplish all this within you as you cooperate with My work of transformation. What you have not been able to accomplish alone, we will now accomplish together. Where you have failed trying alone so many times, we will now succeed working together. I have allowed you to see your absolute need for My help. You now know in your heart that you cannot fix these problems alone.

Trust in Me, that I am the Master Gardener, and that I know exactly what to do to heal each damaged area of your heart. Once you agree, there will be no turning back. This may sound easy, but it will be very challenging and painful at times, more than you can realize right now; but I will stay with you throughout this process. I will take your hand and I will not let you go, even for a second. At times, you may feel alone, but I am still here. I am the Faithful One, and I work to heal and restore My Body. Trust that My intentions are completely good even though this may hurt intensely at times. Know that as we go forward in this time of healing, that I do this to make you whole, I do this so that the evil one cannot harm you anymore with his lies. I do this so that you can fulfill your calling. I heal you so that righteousness will reign, and that all I wish to give you will not be withheld any longer because of sin. Remember that I am with you to the end, and that I love you completely and absolutely. Be courageous and trust in My wisdom, and in My power, and most of all, in My great love for you. You are My beloved Tree of Righteousness, and I have come to heal you, and make you whole so that you can bear all good fruit. Trust in Me, and you will see this happen before your eyes".

The Great Day of Battle Has Come To My faithful soldier. Your day of rest and preparation has now ended and the day of conflict and battle has now come. I would call you this day to wake up from your slumber and to put on your armor and weapons, for the enemy is at the gates and I have drawn up my battle plans and I need to inform you of your place within the great army that I am assembling. This is a day to get ready and to come before Me and to listen. It is no longer a day to just look to survive in the wilderness for although you may not feel ready, I have given you everything you need to march forward and to succeed in the great conquests I am sending you on. Do not be afraid to step out into the unfamiliar because just as I was with you in the wilderness, so I will also be with you in your time of warfare. Your enemy has already been defeated, so do not fear. The wilderness has become too familiar for you and you have become too secure in the daily routine of going through the job of getting ready to enter your promised land. The day of actually entering into your promised land has now come and it is time to stand up and prepare to fight, for I Am your strength and shield. I am now aligning My people and joining them together in their ranks and battle groups, for I have my plans sitting before Me. Come now and take a look at my plans for you for they are exciting and they will bring you new hope and fresh joy to go forward. You will not go forward alone and you are guaranteed success through Me so wake up my dear one and get ready to fight, for the conflict is already at the gates and the time to act has now come. So I would tell you again my soldier, get ready for battle, for it is already here.

The Last Mile My Child, you have said to me, "Why have you kept me in this wilderness so long, and why have you abandoned me after I have endured so much?" I led you into this wilderness to transform you, and to purify you. I could not do this work while you were in Egypt because you would have been too distracted with activity to work on change. And I could not do this work the promised land because you would have not been ready to endure the fight. You would have fallen because of the the old sin that kept you from being stable. I have told you that I would never abandon you, so you must believe that what I say is true. I know you are weary, I know this is a time of very low grace, and that your emotions and evil spirits will try to tempt you to grumble and complain. This is your time to believe with your faith alone in who I AM. Finish what I have shown to finish and I will surely do everything I have promised you. You must continue to cooperate on these last few areas. These few remaining idols will be the hardest to let go of, but I will demand complete holiness and stability before I send you forward with my Power. I understand how tedious and painstaking change is for you. Do not fear, what you have held onto is a lie, and you must face life trusting me to be your protection and security. I will not share my glory with idols. Take my Hand and finish the last part of this wilderness, and I will open the door to your Promised land where you will help many with what I have done in you. I love you, so don't ever forget that, and trust me for this last mile.

The Opposite My dear one, your day to rise has come and now I will take you from the small world you have been used to, and place you into a large world that is greatly in need of My help. I will fulfill all of the words I have spoken to you and none of them will go unfulfilled. You will see and believe that I am the same God in the end that called you from the beginning so long ago. Now you will begin to experience the opposite of many of the things you have been used to all of your life. Now comes the great shift. I would call you not to grieve over the Ishmael's you have lost, but rather I want you to start looking for the Isaac's I want to add to your life. Do not allow the blessing I add to your life to be wasted on the Hagar's of your past, but rather devote your heart to the Sarah that I have joined you

with. This is your day to finally let go of all the old and to embrace the wonderful new things that I have for you. This is a day to repent of all behavior that has caused you loss in the past so that I can bless you with goodness. Though you have lived in a small place I will now give you a large place where many can come and be refreshed and ministered to. Where there has been few family now I will give you a large family made up of people you will know for eternity. Where you have been poor and struggling I will bless you until you cannot close your cupboards because of the great abundance. Where you have been dishonored I will give you honor and I will vindicate you. So my love expect the opposite and be very blessed.

The Prison and the Warden While in prayer, the Holy Spirit showed me a person, and then it is as though the picture zoomed inside to the heart of the person, and what I saw was what looked like many prison cells with many floors, and various people inside each cell. Then I saw the same person who's heart I was viewing as a warden, and they were walking down each row running their nightstick across the bars of each cell glaring in at each person inside. There was a look of satisfaction and contempt on the face of the warden that passed by each cell. But then the view zoomed out a bit, and I could see, that there was no door to the prison to get out anywhere, and the warden was also trapped inside. Then I saw a large golden key with the word "forgiveness" etched into it, come down from above, and all of the sudden it unlocked all of the cells, and dissolved the whole prison itself. Then the Holy Spirit explained to me what I was viewing. He said; You have been hurt many times in life, sometimes very deeply, and because your offender did not apologize, or make things right, you put them into a prison cell in your heart. Now as an adult, you have created a large prison of people that you have not forgiven, and you visit this pain often, reliving the original offense, and punishing those who have wronged you, it has poisoned your heart, and interfered with your ability to receive My forgiveness. You have said in your heart, "When they say they are truly sorry, I will let them out, but not until then". I would call you this day, to let these people go from the prison of your heart, even as I let your offenses go that you committed against Me, and others. I pardoned you from not only a life sentence, but from a death sentence. These people are not really in your prison anyway, it is only the pain and bitterness that you keep locked up, and that is all that actually dwells in each cell. You have trapped yourself inside your own prison of bitterness and resentment, and it is time to destroy this prison altogether with true and complete forgiveness. It is time to draw this poison and pain from your heart, and fill you with fresh love and mercy. Are you willing to trust Me, and My justice?

I love you so much, and it hurts Me to see you so hindered by this old anger, it has created many weeds in the garden of your heart, that steal energy from the good plants. Do you trust Me to bring justice at the proper time, or will you insist on handling your pain by yourself? It is time to clear the garden of your heart, and plant new flowers of forgiveness and love. I would call you this day, to pray for these people, and leave them to Me, I am well aware of their crimes. I have felt your pain, and I know what it is like to be betrayed and sinned against. But I also know, that all men are a work in progress, and that someday, they will give an account for all that they have done in their lives. Come to Me now, and lean into Me. Let your tears fall, and let Me heal your heart. Know that I love you dearly, and I love those who have hurt you as well. Remember the great mercy I have lavished upon you. Grant mercy, even as I have granted you mercy so many times. Know, that as you forgive, it will free up much energy in your soul that has been going to holding your grudges. Know that your heart will become an open channel, free from all that has blocked it up as you forgive. Know that it is your forgiveness that releases Me to deal with your offenders. Now, instead of a prison, your heart will become a haven of love for all who dwell there. It is time to let it all go, let's go forward now.

The Time Is Now My dear one, I have worked with you for many years now to lay a foundation of obedience, faith, and righteousness; and now you stand ready to walk fully in it. There is no more time left to keep trying to get it right because you already know what needs to change, and now you just need to do it. You are ready to make these changes, so you must choose to let go of all that has hindered you in the past, and to fully cooperate with what I need you to do. Believe that as you now repent, things will be different this time, and that you will not slip back into old ways like before. There are many changes that are about to happen in your life and you can either face them being ready, or face them being unready, the choice is yours. You are no longer a spiritual teenager in training, you have now reached a place of spiritual maturity where you will be expected to consistently behave as a spiritual adult from now on. Very soon, there will no longer be a place for you in the wilderness, and already you have felt a strong sense of transition and change coming over your life. New doors will soon begin to appear to you, and the manna I have sustained you with in the wilderness will cease. You must now stand up and walk through these new doors because your future depends upon it. If you let go of the old things willingly, this transition will go much easier, so do not fight Me.

Understand my dear one, that even as you begin to walk in maturity and full obedience, that I will allow certain tests to come along in order to prove that these changes are genuine. I only promote the truly obedient. My power will indeed flow through your life, so come and seek Me more in prayer, and I will meet you there and give you fresh revelation and insight. So My love, do not look at things as being in the future any longer, because the time is now.

The Time to Repent Fully Has Come My dear one, you have come to the end of your time of preparation and now we are going forward, but I need you to fully repent of your sin and your past in order for you to go forward. Do not be afraid to take the step of faith to walk in complete holiness before Me, for that is the doorway to your future. I would also call you this day to let go of those people from your past that have no place in your future. I will take care of them and your job is just to focus upon and follow Me. Take your hands off of the past so that I can hand you your future, you cannot hold on to both of them at once. I will no longer accept partial repentance like in the past for I have brought you into a place of maturity where there is no longer any excuse or reason to walk in old ways that brought only death and shame. I am your strength and behold I have laid a new foundation in you to build upon. The old weak foundation is gone so do not fear that you will fail like in times passed. Look to me to be your strength and just be willing to let Me lead you forward into a new day of purity and obedience before Me. Stay humble my child, for all the good you see in your life will come from Me and my work. I am pouring out extra grace right now for all who will take the step of faith to fully repent of all sin in their life so ask it of Me and I will grant it to you. Do not look around at what others may or may not be doing, do not compare yourself to others in making your decision to repent. Look only to Me and take the step forward this day to forsake all sin idols in your life, for My kingdom is truly coming and is already at the door. Trust Me this day my loved one, for My hand is extended to you right now to help you to fully repent and to lead you into the wonderful destiny that I have planned for you.

They Will Look To You My dear one, you have spent many years being prepared by Me so I had much of your outer life shut down along with many of the normal relationships that could have possibly distracted you while I was changing

you. I allowed only what was necessary and useful in your time of growth and healing to remain in your life, but now that most of your time of transformation is now complete I will be opening up many new and old doors to relationships where people will come to you to receive from Me and to serve. Get ready to get busy locally as well as globally my dear one for I will place you upon peoples hearts and some will even dream of you because I am sending them to you for ministry and to also minister with you. So even though you have just survived in a cave for so very long now I will be changing things and causing your dwelling to be expanded and improved to accommodate all those who will be sent to you. Be willing to be open to the many new things that will come because they are right at your door. Even old friends and family that have left your life long ago will suddenly be drawn to you again and new opportunities to help your community will be opening up very soon so be willing to be joined to others within your area that have finished their wilderness time like you have. I will build large families on large pieces of land so though you have dwelt like a hermit you will now be part of a very large and loving family. They are coming my love and they will look to you so open your heart wide and let them in.

This is Your Day to Stand My dear Child, I have heard you asking in your heart "Why have you allowed all these apparently terrible things to happen in my life, I just don't understand it?" Though you may not understand it right now, just like my servant Joseph I have been creating things in you through the experiences you have endured so that you could fulfill the calling I have placed upon your life. Though you do not understand now what I have done, you will fully understand later on why this was all so necessary. Will you continue to trust me now even though you do not understand what I have allowed to happen in your life? Will you continue to look and to wait upon me for fresh direction even though you cannot see a path in front of you to take right now? I have not forgotten you and I will be just as faithful as I have always been to lead you forward when the time is just right. I am looking at my watch right now for exactly the right time to send you forward, and that time is nearly here even now. Do not give up your hope or trust in me in this day of strange testings. I know you are weary and confused right now, but this is a time to draw closer to me, not to draw away from me in distrust. Remember all the good things that I have done for you in the past and how I have always been faithful to you even when you were not so faithful to me. Would I abandon you now in your day of greatest need? No, of course not. I am

with you my precious one, and I will indeed fulfill all the words I have spoken concerning you. The vision I have given you for your life is indeed real, and I will help you to stand in it this very day. This is your day of joy not doubt, so stand up I say!

This Storm Will End My dear one, you have entered a time of great transition where everything is being upheaved and allowed to be destabilized. This time of great change may effect your finances, health, relationships, vocation, family, residence, and the ministry I have called you to. But know that these changes are meant to bring you up higher and not lower. This may feel like a fierce storm right now but I want to encourage you that this storm will end when I have accomplished all that is necessary to bring you up higher into this next level of service. These changes must occur in order for you to rise and to do everything I need you to do with the least amount of hindrances and distractions. Even with My people in the wilderness just before they entered their promised land there came a day when their manna stopped coming and the normal lifestyle they lived suddenly began to change. All that they were familiar with and secure in became uprooted and they had to trust me for new things even as the old passed away. I am bringing you up to a new and higher level in every area of your life, and in order to do that I have to lift the grace off of these areas. I allow things to seem out of order so that I can bring them into the new place of order and structure that can stand in the new things I am calling you to. New wine indeed requires a new wineskin to put it in. So do not fear My dear one, you will get through this challenging time and I have not left you. There is no need to keep second guessing yourself, or wondering where you have failed, this is just a turbulent time of change, nothing more. Be at peace and look to Me and My peace will walk with you and help you through this. This is your day to stand and to take your place in My kingdom and in this great harvest of souls upon the earth. Do not fear change because this is a different kind of change than in the wilderness. I am bringing you into My power and My blessing so that you can go into battle and defeat the enemy at every turn. So take courage, this storm will soon end.

Time for My Power and Blessing You have labored hard over these long years of preparation and purification, and although you did fight and hesitate at times, you always surrendered to Me in the end, and you did not withhold even your most

precious things. You have let go of that which offended and hindered, and now you walk in purity and holiness because you cooperated with My daily training. You have let go of the past now, and you have forgiven those who wronged you. You have eagerly obeyed me, when you knew clearly that it was I, that was speaking to you. Slowly but surely we made progress together, day by day, and the good changes that came were lasting ones. Now, it is finally time to begin to walk forward. It is time to believe for new things, and it is time for My power and blessing to flow through your life. Though you were held back in the past, and you seemed to have many false starts that just ended in more time of preparation, now you are ready to obey my voice and conquer the new land I am sending you to. Trust me just as much now, as you have in the past; Obey me just as much now, even though it would seem, that you have more freedom to make choices. I would call you to feed upon, and listen to me even more-so now, as we enter this new time of increased power, blessing, and service. I delight in restoring all that was sacrificed, and I delight in blessing you in front of those who judged you as a failure. You bore my reproach in order to be obedient to my calling, and in order that My heart might be formed in you so that you could serve in My power and love. Now I have a strong, reliable foundation of holiness, obedience, and love in you, that I can build very high upon. Before, the cracks of pain and sin in your old foundation would have caused it to fail under pressure. Now I will build a great house of blessing upon that foundation, for it is built upon Me, your Rock, and this new place will be a haven and storehouse for all I send to you.

"Trust Me Again" My dear one, you have reached your day of miracles, but I can see that you are afraid to trust Me again because you have seen so many times before where your miracle did not come to pass. I would admonish you this day My love that no matter how many times in the past you have seen your miracle not come to pass that now is the appointed time and I would call you to trust Me again as you did in the beginning. Without faith you cannot see the fulfillment of My miracles so it is critical that you be willing to step out in faith and trust Me yet again. My time and your time to have something happen is many times quite different because I must first get you ready to walk in your miracle before it happens. Just because your miracle did not happen in your time does not mean that what you heard was false. I always keep My word. You see, I have had to spend many years preparing and healing you so I could not allow things to break open early or your preparation and healing would have been lost. I had to restrict things for a time so that I could

fully prepare you, but now that time is over, so no matter how afraid or unbelieving your heart has become I would call you now to trust Me again for your day for the fulfillment of your miracles has indeed come!

Walking and Abiding My dear Child, I have watched you for years, while you have struggled to overcome sin in your own strength. I admire your effort, and desire to be holy, but true, consistent holiness comes only from walking, and abiding in Me every moment of every day. It comes from being and staying connected to Me, that is where your strength comes from. Daily infilling, and obedience to my truth is what keeps you walking free from sin habits. I would call you this day, to relinquish your control, your plans, and the vows and resolutions you make to stop sinning, and let Me give you My righteousness. It is My goodness flowing through an obedient servant, that allows him to live free. Have you experienced victory or defeat, when you have tried to do it in your flesh alone? Holiness is a state of being, not a trophy to be attained, let Me do through you, what you cannot do on your own. As you walk in faith, and receive My ability, you will find success. Surrender to Me, and walk forward, and I will guide your steps. Sitting and striving will never work, it's time to move forward, are you willing to let Me show you My strength? It is My grace and revelation of the truth, that helps you to let go of the lie that keeps you bound. Let Me be all that you need, My way works every time. I cannot share My glory, with works of the flesh. I love you no matter what, and there is nothing you can do to earn My love. All that you need is in Me; Now, let go of your flesh, and embrace My Spirit. The day has come, to take off your cloak of striving, and put on My strength, My armor, My goodness, My grace. You will see success as you abandon your plans, and just walk in Me moment by moment. Trust Me to be in complete control, I won't fail you. Feed on My word, drink from My Spirit, rest and receive. Trust me to do, what you cannot, trust me to lead you, even if you cannot see the whole plan I see. Know that I have planned this all out, before you were even born, I AM your everything, trust Me now.

Wrestle For My Blessing! My dear one, I see you teetering between faith and discouragement right now and I would call you to push through and to wrestle for My blessing that has been promised to you. Even as My servant Jacob wrestled with Me

because he desperately wanted my blessing, I would also call you to do the same thing this day. Today is your day to break through not to break down, so do not allow the evil one to speak words of doubt and unbelief into your heart. Rather put your trust in Me and you will see My salvation. Even as the caterpillar goes into a cocoon for a period of time and then wrestles to break out of it to become a beautiful butterfly, so you too have been in a spiritual cocoon of transformation for a very long time, and now your day to wrestle and break out of it has come. I would not call you to strive in the flesh to break out, but I would call you to persevere in faith and prayer during this challenging time and to not let go of any of the promises I have given you. New life awaits you just ahead if you hang on. You cannot stay where you are at any longer and you must move forward, so be willing to struggle to get through this time of transition and you will indeed make it through to the other side. There are many new and wonderful blessings that await you when reach the other side, so do not give up. I know you are weary right now and that you are afraid to trust again because you do not want to be disappointed but your faith must rest in who I Am and not in what you see. So My child wrestle for My blessing!

You Are Blessed, Not Cursed My dear one, there has been a distinction made between you and other people around you in your life where you could not succeed or progress as they did, and you have supposed that you are just cursed because no matter how hard you tried to do the same thing, you were denied. This happened because I held you back in your life and not because you failed. You see my love, you have just had a calling upon your life and I needed to shape your character and keep you from being pulled into the world through the natural course your talents and desires would have taken you. I have just been preparing you for your whole life and I have not been punishing you. You are actually blessed and not cursed, and all you have been through will pay off. Though there has been a long standing ceiling placed upon how far you could rise, I will promote you much higher than you could have gone if you have been allowed to do it your own way. But remember this promotion is so that I can use you to serve many, because the time is short and many are needed to help bring in this harvest. Deeper foundations take more time to build for higher buildings, and so it was with you. Even though you have had to watch other people who deserved it less receive what you should have received much earlier in life but did not, I will now by My hand take you much further and higher in one day. So my dear one, do not be disheartened any longer, your day has come to rise up to your true place of service and blessing.

You Are Still Right On Course My love, I have seen the alarm in your soul wondering whether you have gotten grossly off course somewhere along the line and I want to tell you today that you are still very much right on course. Although things may seem like they are dragging on too long, and even though this is not necessarily where you want to be right now this is in fact exactly right where you are supposed to be right now. You need not keep second guessing yourself or questioning whether you missed it somewhere along the line because you didn't. You are still very much right on track so you need not fear. This is not a time to be cynical or doubting, it is a time to be fully obedient and to just trust Me no matter how you may feel, or what you do or don't see right now. You are not wasting your time and I have not forgotten about you. If you get a bad attitude it will not change anything, it will just hurt you and those around you. I know you are tired of hearing words and you want to see some action, but you must quiet your restless soul right now and return to your place of peace. My eyes are just as much upon you now as ever so come and seek Me rather than complaining or worrying. Even though you may not understand why things are taking so long right now I am indeed working some things out not only in you, but in those around you as well so try to be patient and do not keep beating up on yourself, or on those around you. Babies frequently need to be reassured that their parent is still there for them, but you are not a baby and you can trust in My faithfulness to you. Be the adult that I have created you to be and keep your peace because very soon I will indeed move so you might as well keep your peace right now and not worry, because you are still right on course.

You Have Gained Your Soul My dear one, I have heard your thoughts and sighs concerning your life as you have viewed what little your outward efforts seem to have produced compared to the other people around you, but something much greater has been taking place that you should be aware of. Even as I have said what good is it for someone to gain the whole world but lose their soul, the opposite has taken place in your life and because you have sacrificed everything to follow Me, you have now gained your own soul. What has been done in you has produced the eternal fruits of righteousness, holiness, and obedience, which cannot be compared to anything you could accomplish in the world.

You have sacrificed all and surrendered every part of your life to serve Me and you have lost many opportunities, blessings, and relationships in the process that normal people seem to have in abundance. But those other people have yet to gain their own souls and there is no price that they can pay to buy what I have given you. You have overcome with My help, which is priceless. Now you are in a place where I can pour Myself through you to help many needy people. Rejoice My love for you stand ready to walk forward into the harvest and into the difficult times that are coming upon the earth where many other people will not be ready and will have no time left to prepare. Know this, I keep careful record of what was sacrificed in someones life in order to follow Me and I reward them in abundance at the proper time. But your time on earth is short and much that man thinks is valuable is eternally worthless. Also remember that I can restore and accelerate your outward progress just like My servant Joseph and take you from a prison cell to managing a nation in just one day. Joseph was not prepared in a fancy school, but rather He was trained by Me personally in the secret and quiet. So My love do not grieve or compare what is not in your life, but rather see clearly that by forsaking the things of this world you have indeed gained you own soul.

You Will Indeed Give Birth My dear one, for many years now you have been pregnant with a huge promise that I gave you long ago. You have hung onto and carried this promise even though others said there was no promise, and the evil one also tried to convince you that you had just been deceived. But I would tell you this day My love, that this promise did in fact come from Me, and you will indeed give birth to it very soon, so do not give up now. This promise does not just involve you, it involves many other people that I will help because of its fulfillment. You are living in a critical time in history where you will see many challenging and extreme things taking place in order for Me to work out My will in the earth for these last days. You have been chosen from the beginning to carry this promise because I knew that you would not give up when things got really tough. Cast off all doubt and do not abort this promise that I gave you. Do not let it go for it will in fact come to pass if you do not give up. You see dear one, it took many years and many trials to fully prepare you to carry the responsibility of this promise after it was finally birthed, so that is why you had to carry it for so long. But your day of giving birth is now very near, so hang on right now and you will see this promise born.

You will Not Die In Your Cave My faithful one, I have seen you in your cave of preparation crying. I have watched each tear roll down your cheek and your chest heave as you sobbed and prayed to Me in your pain. I would tell you this day my love to grieve and cry no more over what you have lost because all my words will indeed prove to be true for you. Believe Me and find fresh hope and strength this day. I have not forgotten you and I am fully aware of the dire situation that you are in right now. Though you have been in a time where the sea was flat and your ship seemed to sink right beneath you, I am the God of resurrection and I am able by my power to raise you up once again even stronger. The cave I have kept you in is not a tomb as you supposed, but rather an incubator where I nurtured and matured you. There came a time when my friend Lazarus died and all hope seemed lost, and some people even got upset with me for not acting when they though I should, but did I fail them? No, I brought resurrection out of utter death and I will do the same for you if you will trust Me. Just know that what is raised back to life is Myself formed in you so that people around you can receive from Me through you. Trust in My faithful character and steadfast love for you my dear one and do not weep in your cave any longer. Believe in the One who died for you and live. Though your waiting has seemed like forever, though all around you looks like a grave, I am the God of resurrection and I will surely move on your behalf very soon. Be ready and waiting with your shoes on to meet Me and to walk forward with Me out of your cave once and for all. You will remember all that I have taught you in your cave, but you will not go back there again, even if you want to. Remember that all new life springs forth from Me alone and Springtime comes solely by My power each year. This is going to be my people's spiritual springtime and like a calf you will burst out of your stalls and run with great joy and fresh strength. Once again My faithful one, trust in Me and know that you will surely not die in your cave, but rather you will live.

You Will See Healings My dear one, I gave you a word many years ago that you would be used in the gift of healing and that day has now come. Though you have prayed for many since then few were healed because you were not yet ready to walk in this area at such a high level. Much has changed since then and I have matured you and purified your motives for wanting this gift. You have even experienced health problems since then that have shown you what it is like to suffer and need healing. I have developed a compassion in you for those who need to be healed and I have built a deep foundation of obedience in you that can stand up and remain strong during times of temptation or persecution.

It is now time to bring you into a place of greater faith concerning healing so I will be leading you into situations where you and other people around will need healing. All healing works by faith so look and ask for it. Do not be afraid to step out in faith once again in this area because even though many did not get healed in the past because faith was missing, now they will indeed be healed. Always remember that I Am the Healer and that you need My direction with each person that I send to you. This gift will lead many to salvation so be ready to preach the gospel. So My love, get ready to receive your healing and to help others receive theirs, for surely you will see healings.

You Will Soon Step Into A Clearing My dear one, for a very long time now I have had you navigating your way through a vast spiritual forest as I teach you many things and change you through it. But very soon you will step into a spiritual clearing where your view will be unblocked and unhindered, and you will see everything much more clearly and completely than you have for a very long time now. You will understand things much better in the days just ahead because we are going to have some very close fellowship as we sit in this clearing together, and I will explain many things about your journey through the long forest that you have been moving through for so long. This will be a time of restoration, refreshment, and fresh revelation and empowerment. When you step into this spiritual clearing, you will notice many others entering this large clearing from all sides that have also been making their way through their forest of change, and I will join you to many of these people, and you will work together in this harvest. So My dear one, take fresh hope and courage this day, because you will soon step into a clearing.

Your Lazarus's will Live Again I have felt your pain and heard your cries in the night, as you have grieved over all that has seemingly died in your life. You saw everything that you held dear and hoped for, seemingly dashed to pieces before your very eyes. But I would tell you this day, that I am the God of resurrection, and I bring new life, from that which seemed dead. Look to Me now, and trust Me to bring back to life all that I have given you, nothing shall be lost. It has been good that these things that you love and hold so dear, have left you for a season, because you held on too tightly to some of them, and they competed for attention and prominence with Me. You had to see that your life would go on without them, and that all you need in life is

found exclusively through Me. You had to see that I can control and manage all things, and that you can trust Me with all that which you love. Now as I bring these things back to life, I would have you hold onto them lightly. For all things dwell in My hands, and they are mine to give life to, or remove life from. I cause things and people to be attracted, or be repelled, according to my good purposes and plans. Trust Me that what lives in your life is by My doing, and what is taken from your life is also decided by Me. And know that My motives are always good in everything I do concerning you. Even as Lazarus was brought back to life and there was great joy, even so it will be with you as you see your Lazarus's brought back to life, and great will be the faith it creates in yourself and in others who witness it. I even allowed your family, friends, and others to witness the death of these things, so that they could witness them being brought back to life. They will surely know that I am the God that lives, and they will believe that I bring new life, from death.

Your Life Went The Way It was Suppose To My dear one, I have heard you questioning things about your life about what you think should or should not have happened and I would tell you this day that your life went the way it was supposed to. You see, I knew exactly what needed to happen in your life to shape you for the calling you were destined to fulfill. There is no point in saying how if you had been given different opportunities in your life that you would have done things differently because you have been following My course all along. It is never My will that people sin or hurt other people like you have been hurt in your life, but I knew that this would happen and I planned beforehand to bring good out of it to help others later on. Do not let the evil one lie to you about Me because if after knowing the truth you choose to believe a lie, then you suffer by your own choice needlessly. Know that all you have been through will be used and nothing will be wasted. Your life went the way it was supposed to my love, so be at peace and live.

Your Need Is The Doorway To My Miracle My dear one, do not be perplexed at the great needs, attacks, and challenges that have suddenly been cropping up and getting over your head as far as your ability to manage them. Your need is the doorway to My miracles so I have allowed you to enter a new place of need in your body and finances so that I can lead you into My flow of miracles in these areas, you need not fear what is happening to you. Even as My children

were brought to the edge of the Red Sea with the enemy about to destroy them so I have allowed some impossible situations to suddenly arise in your life so that you might see My great deliverance and believe Me in a new and deeper way. This is a day of greater faith so I have to allow the need to be greater as well. You have two choices as you face your Red Sea experiences, you can either get upset with Me, or you can cry out to Me and trust Me to rescue and help you in your day of need. I have only allowed these things to happen so that your faith can grow in order for you to operate at a much higher level of receiving from Me. There are going to be many people that I will lead to you that will need to receive from Me so your faith must be able to believe in Me for greater things. Do not be afraid My dear one, I am the God who heals and provides, so trust Me to rescue you and to also build great faith in you.

Your Spiritual Season Is Changing My dear one, even as the seasons are changing in the world, the spiritual season you have been in for so long is also changing. Can you feel it? I know you can. Do not be alarmed at this mighty shift for we are entering into the great harvest of souls upon the earth and many of My dear harvester's will be set into their new places in My field. As this great change takes place your grace and strength to remain in your current season will wane, but you must rise up in determination to fulfill your duties even until I bring you fully into this new season. This new season is very near you even now, and it comes with fresh grace, strength, and provision to carry you into your new position. Do not worry about the new place I am giving you in My kingdom, I know exactly the right place for you and I have been preparing that place for a very long time now, long before you got there. Much work is ahead of you but this work is full of miracles and joy, so you will not be disappointed. Know this day, your spiritual season is changing.

Your Time Has fully Come Now My faithful soldier, the time that I have talked to you about for so long has fully come now and I would call you to put on all of your armor and to stand ready at the battle line with your fellow soldiers to go to war and fight. The time for training and preparation is over and now you must march forward and put all that I have given you into practice. This is the day of fierce battle for the souls of mankind in the earth and I have raised up a mighty army of holy warriors that will not shrink back in fear or

retreat when the enemy attacks. I Am your Captain of Battle and I stand ready to lead you. This is your day to walk fully in My kingdom life and to put away all sin and to forgive all whom you have held a grudge against. You must never again turn back to those things which weakened and destroyed you, but now you must walk as a strong spiritual adult capable of accomplishing all that I command you without distraction or compromise. It is time for great judgment against the enemy of your souls and I send you out to wreak My vengeance upon the armies of darkness. This is your day to take back what was stolen and to rescue the captives that have been held by the evil one. As you go forward my faithful soldier, remember to listen and act upon my orders and direction alone, and do nothing based solely upon what you see in the natural. You do not march to war alone, but you march with a mighty army of your obedient brothers and sisters, and my holy servants the angels. I seek to conquer all that is trapped in the realm of darkness with My light and to set right that which has been kept wrong for far too long. My eyes have been upon the weak and downtrodden and I come to set them free. Rise up My faithful soldier, for your time has fully come now.
