Peaceful Waters

My holy people; the whole world is looking for what you have. There is a world full of people who are looking for peace and do not have it. That’s the main reason that the gospel of the Kingdom is good news. You are preserved in peace. Not because you try hard at following Me. Not because you keep this rule and that. No, you are preserved in peace for one simple reason … you trust in Me.

My love, you have learned so many things, but have you really learned how to trust Me, or is it a gift to you? My love, you have struggled at times against many things, mostly yourself, and yet the only thing that will preserve you in peace is trusting in Me. Nothing else. Nothing more. No substitute and no replacement.

My precious bride-to-be there are so many promises given to you. So many things have yet to be accomplished for the Kingdom. You will only see some of the promises answered this side of heaven. Not everything is promised for right now. Some things will happen in due time, in due season. For there is a time and there is a season for everything. Yes, even the promises that are so dear to your heart. Many of these will be accomplished later, not now.

This does not matter to those who trust Me. This has little to do with anything to the heart that trusts Mine. Hell may roar, the enemy may stand at the very gate of your life. My love, you are as beautiful as a victorious army waving banners. Not because you always have the right answer or fight all the battles successfully. Not because of your abilities or even My abilities. You are beautiful to Me because of the trust that adorns your heart toward Me. This honors Me. This glorifies Me.

Trust me and preserve the peace I give you.

Old Things, New Things

My holy people; there are old things and there are new things that I wish you to know. Don’t you know it?

My Kingdom is made up of old things and new things. The old things have been recorded, for I have spoken them long ago and recorded them in scripture so you would know them. However there are also new things that I announce, new things that I am doing that are not recorded in scripture. These are the current workings of My Spirit in you and in others.

Are you living in My now? That is the only way to know My Great Heart and follow after Me. You cannot be living on yesterday’s revelation. You cannot be living on scripture alone. You must learn of Me, hear My Great Heart and follow after Me with all that is within you, for as you are led by the Spirit, you will not fulfill the desires of the flesh, but instead you will be fulfilling My will in the earth to My glory.

That is why I prepared the place for you, the place where I am. Here you will hear and know My Great Heart. Here you will hear and know My Voice. Here you will learn of Me and go out and do those things that are upon My Great Heart.

A great change is upon you, a change that is overtaking you, a change that is preparing and energizing you, a change that will cause you to live in My now. I am making all things new and revealing this to you. This change is all in your heart. Some would say this and that is all in your head, but I say that this great change that is upon you is all in your heart. For I have captured your heart and you have found Me as the great lover of your soul. You have traversed the great chasm and found Me waiting with arms wide open. I have waited upon you and this time for you for a long time. Now it is here, now it is time. Come to Me, learn of Me, follow Me. We will run together.

My Open Bible

It is always open, and there is my High Priest ever waiting to receive me. There I have my confessional, my thanksgiving, my psalm of praise. and a congregation of whom the world is not worthy, prophets and apostles, and martyrs and confessors. In short, all I can want, there I find.

“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Praise be to you, O LORD; teach me your decrees. With my lips I recount all the laws that come from your mouth. I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches. I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways.
I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.´
Psalm 119:11-16

Love Of Our Father

The Father also loved the Son because of His willingness to die for lost sinners. "Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again" (John 10:17).

Then in the upper room, as Christ prayed to His Father, it was revealed that this divine love had existed in eternity, and therefore must be both the root and the measure of all forms of true love ever since. "Father . . . thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world" (John 17:24). Parental love, marital love, filial love, love of country--all types of genuine love--are derived ultimately from this eternal love of the Father for the Son.

And it is this love that can also be in us, if we will have it. "As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you. . . . If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love" (John 15:9-10).

Out Of The Mouths Of Babes

For those who become like little children, the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

For the universe is truly amazing. The way the planets flow so harmonically around the sun, not jostling, not bumping into each other. The way just one planet was so perfectly placed so that it could support life; not one step too close, so that all water would be evaporated, and not one step too far, so that all would freeze. The earth is not a place of flat, shapeless terrain where only proteins fit to grow on the backs of crystals reside, but a massive, churning, colorful array of organisms and minerals and elements and LIFE, so finely orchestrated that if even one creature is added or removed, that ecosystem is thrown into chaos.
Tianna Mallett, 16 years old, an essay on creation.

He That Is Perfect

To be perfect means you are striving for the heart of God . . . . Get over the fact that you are not perfect and start worshiping the One who is perfect.

“I will proclaim the name of the LORD. Oh, praise the greatness of our God! He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.
Deuteronomy 32:3-4

"As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him. For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights.
2 Samuel 22:31-34

“In bringing many sons to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the author of their salvation perfect through suffering. Both the one who makes men holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers.”
Hebrews 2:10-11

What Must I Do To Be "Saved"?

"Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it." Zechariah 12:2-3

Now, I appeal to everyone to carefully understand what God is foretelling in this remarkable prophecy, made almost 2,500 years ago! After He brings Israel back to her land, God is going to deliberately create the following situation to develop: Little tiny Jerusalem is going to be the center of attention and agitation, for all the peoples who are living around it. These peoples, the Arabs living around Jerusalem, are going to be mightily agitated over Israeli control of Jerusalem. The Arab peoples surrounding Jerusalem are going to come against it in such a way that the situation will appear as though they have Jerusalem surrounded, as in a siege. They will come in wave after wave against Jerusalem. As one wave is annihilated, another one will take its place. God will annihilate them all.

"Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him." 1 Corinthians 2:9

Are YOU Saved?
What will it take to open the eyes and ears of the vast majority of the people? When will they wake up? The sad fact is that most will never awaken until it is too late.

Global War On Christians Values Pt.2

We live in an imperfect world, and a spiritual war is raging all around us. America may never be the same, but those who know God have a place of refuge. And in the midst of it all, we will -- by His grace -- continue to share His joy, comfort, mercy and resources.

"Be kindly affectionate to one another...patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality. Bless those who persecute you.... Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep." Romans 12:10-15

Global War On Christian Values Pt.1

Our Lord rejected any kind of compromise. He died at the hands of religious leaders who were offended by His uncompromising words.

His disciples followed the same narrow path. When the high priest complained that they had disobeyed public guidelines and "filled Jerusalem with [their] doctrine,” they answered:

“We ought to obey God rather than men." Acts 5:29

Call To The Ark

Come all my dearest children

for the time of trial is here,

into the ark of my protection

I will take away all fear.

Just as Noah long ago

saved those who would take heed,

and left behind the blind and deaf

full of worldly sin and greed.

The reign of sin and error

is increasing, soon to flood,

because of man’s rejection of my Son

and His redeeming blood.

The earth is placed in peril

all children on the brink,

minds and hearts befuddled

into Satan’s grasp they sink.

My ark will be a haven

I will protect and save,

those who come and take their refuge

I will help you to be brave.

My mother-love will fill you

I will light your path and guide,

through times of fear and darkness

I’ll be always at your side.

—Margaret Rose Larrivee, July 11, 1994
