    IT IS TIME

     

    There are many who are in desperate need for this word today.  You have been waiting for the Lord’s promises to you to manifest. Waiting and waiting and “feeling” as if it is too late or as if maybe you didn’t really hear from the Lord to begin with.  Your faith has become stretched so thin that you have entertained the thought of giving up, but despite all you are still holding on.  This is the word of the Lord to encourage and strengthen you today….
     
    The Lord says unto you….I AM not a man that I should lie.  I AM ever faithful and true.  You are carrying My promises to you deep within your Spirit.  Know that the time of the birthing of your promises is upon you!  IT IS TIME!!!  IT IS THE TIME OF BIRTHING!!!  Make ready to receive and walk in the new.  IT IS TIME!!!
     
     
    Ezekiel 12:
     
    28Therefore say to them, Thus says the Lord God: There shall none of My words be deferred any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be performed, says the Lord God. (AMP)

    LOVE…

        I Corinthians 13 (AMP):

         4Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.

        5It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].

        6It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.

        7Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].

        8Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end].

    John 3:

     16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

     

    FOR YET A LITTLE WHILE…

     

    I hear your heart cries.  I know your pain.  It seems as if it has been so long…so long in waiting for relief and resolution in so many areas.  Even all of creation is indeed moaning and groaning for relief.  The times are hard to endure and the wickedness you see and experience sicken you.  I see and know!  And I say unto you that in these times look to and hope in Me.  I will take your burdens and bear your wounds.  I will be Your Strength even and especially in your weakness.  I say hold fast and and stand firm until I come!  Continue to overcome for yet a little while….for this soon will pass.  Continue to look up for your Redemption draws nigh….Behold, I do come!!!
     
    Romans 8:
     
    14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

     16The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

     17And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

     18For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

     19For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

     20For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

     21Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

     22For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

     23And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

     24For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?

     25But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

     
    Revelation 2:
     
    24But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. 25But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.

     26And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

     27And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.

     28And I will give him the morning star.

    OUR BLOOD COVENANT

    I AM in covenant with you.  I cut the covenant, and I will not break the covenant.  The precious Blood of Jesus has sealed this covenant, and again I say,  it shall never be broken.  Your knowledge and understanding of the power of the Blood and the benefits provided through our covenant enable you to walk in great power and fully comprehend with absolute assurance your position in Me.  Our covenant contains all My love and promises to you and makes the way for you to walk in these things.  This is the most important and beneficial agreement that you have ever entered into. It is time for you to review the terms of our covenant….to familiarize yourself with all its benefits so that you may walk in them daily. 

     
    Hebrews 12:
    18For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, 19And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:

     20(For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart:

     21And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)

     22But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

     23To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

     24And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

     25See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:

     26Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.

     27And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.

     28Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

     29For our God is a consuming fire.

    Exodus 34:

    5 And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.
    6 And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,
    7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
    8 And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.

    Nahum 1:

    2 God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.
    3 The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.
    4 He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth.
    5 The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.
    6 Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.
    7 The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
    8 But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.

    DRAW NEAR AND INQUIRE OF ME

    YOU FIND YOURSELF IN A PLACE OF HARDNESS.  YOU FEEL CONFINED AND SO ALONE.  YOU FEEL IMPRISONED IN A PLACE OF DEADNESS.  BECAUSE YOU CAN SEE NO WAY OUT, YOU ARE LOSING HOPE.
     
    BUT I SAY TO YOU IN THIS HOUR, DRAW NEAR AND INQUIRE OF ME!  I AM WITH YOU AND WILL NEVER LEAVE NOR FORSAKE YOU.  I AM YOUR HOPE AND EXPECTATION.  MY WORDS ARE LIFE AND WILL SHOW YOU THE WAY.  I HAVE BROUGHT YOU TO THIS PLACE THAT WE MAY SHARE A TIME OF INTIMACY.  ALLOW ME TO MINISTER UNTO YOU IMPARTING MY LOVE, TRUTH, STRENGTH…INDEED MY VERY HEART UNTO YOU.  FOR AS THE DAYS BECOME DARKER AND FILLED WITH DEATH AND DESPAIR, I WILL USE YOU AS MY LIGHT TO SPEAK LIFE INTO THE TRULY HOPELESS OF THE WORLD….THOSE WHO ARE WITHOUT ME.  NOW SEE AND UNDERSTAND THAT THIS TIME IS TRULY MY GIFT TO YOU.  A TIME TO MOLD YOU INTO MY HOLY VESSEL OF HONOR.  SO EMBRACE ME IN THIS TIME THAT YOU MAY COME FORTH TRIED AND TRUE….MY REFLECTION SHOWING FORTH IN YOU!
     
    Psalm 139:
     
     5Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. 6Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

    Revelation 3:

    18 counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

    Psalm 17:

    15As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

    ANSWER HIS CALL

    The Lord’s word to you today is very short,  “ANSWER MY CALL!!!” 

    FOR MANY ARE CALLED, BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN.
    Matthew 22:14
     
    Many of you are hearing the Lord calling you, but you are refusing to answer His call.  Oh, there are many reasons you don’t answer.  Some simply will not submit to the sovereignty of our precious Lord and Savior.  Others are too busy with the “important” things of this world to give time and attention to the “foolishness” of the Lord’s kingdom.  Some simply do not want to let go of the “comforts” that this world and it’s system afford them.  And then there are those who hold positions of worldly influence and authority who simply do not want to give it up to lower their station in life to “serve” the Lord. And last but certainly not least (in the Lord’s eyes especially) are those who fear they are not worthy or capable of answering His call.
     
    Oh Lord have mercy on Your people!   We are now living in perilous times.  There is no more time to “play” in this world.  It is time to be about Your Father’s business.  It is time to answer the call of your Lord and Savior.  It is time to put aside whatever stands between you and  Him.  It is time to surrender all of you to pick up your cross and follow Him. Some are being called unto Salvation while others are being called to discharge an office within the Body of Christ.  But MANY are now being called!!!  And, IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO ANSWER HIS CALL!!!  Surrender all of your self and this world to serve your King.  He has great need of you.  You fill a specific position within His Living Temple and are greatly needed.  Delay no longer for time indeed grows short and much is left to be done.  Surrender it all for the sake of His call!!!!
     
    I Corinthians 1:
    26For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

     27But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

     28And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

     29That no flesh should glory in his presence.

    MY JOSEPHS ARE NOT FORGOTTEN

     

    This message was impressed upon my Spirit this morning.  I sense it is for many in the Body of Christ today.  May you be encouraged and strengthened to fulfill His perfect will and destiny for your lives….through which many shall be saved!!!

    YOU HAVE BEEN CARRYING MY VISION WITHIN YOUR SPIRIT….SOME FOR MANY YEARS NOW.  YOUR HEARD MY CALL AND ANSWERED, “YES, LORD” WITH GREAT JOY AND ANTICIPATION.  YET TIME AND CIRCUMSTANCES HAVE WORN YOU DOWN TO THE POINT THAT YOU QUESTION IF YOU EVEN HEARD MY INSTRUCTIONS OR CARRY MY VISION.  EVERYTHING IN THE NATURAL LOOKS AND FEELS CONTRARY TO ALL THAT I HAVE PLACED WITHIN YOUR HEART.  BUT HEAR THE VOICE OF YOUR LORD TODAY:

    MY JOSEPHS ARE NOT FORGOTTEN!!!  IT HAS ONLY SEEMED SO.  BUT NOW THE TIME HASTENS SPEEDILY FOR MY JOSEPHS TO BE DELIVERED UP FROM THE PIT….TO BE BROUGHT UP INTO THE PRESENCE OF THE KING!  TO BE GIVEN ALL MATTER OF PROVISION FROM THE KING’S TREASURY IN ORDER TO MINISTER TO AND PROVIDE FOR MY PEOPLE DURING THE TIME OF DARKNESS AND FAMINE.  DO NOT DISHONOR THE KING BY LIMITING HIS PROVISION…DO NOT DISHONOR THE KING BY LOOKING ONLY FOR MATERIAL PROVISION.  ALL….ALL MATTER OF GIFTS FROM THE KING’S TREASURY WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE TO FULFILL HIS PLANS.  BUT WOE, WOE TO THOSE WHO THINK THEY CAN RECEIVE OF THIS DIVINE PROVISION TO BUILD PERSONAL WEALTH OR REPUTATION…TO GLORIFY FLESH!  FOR THE GLORY IS MINE! AND YOUR LORD IS INDEED A CONSUMING FIRE!!!

    STAND AND BELIEVE
    WAIT TO RECEIVE
    RISE UP INTO YOUR DESTINY

     
    GENESIS 50:
     
    20But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

    REST….REST IN ME

     

    Today I say to you, REST….REST IN ME!!!
     
    To My great and mighty warriors who are feeling so tired and weary, whose flesh cries out in protest. I say unto you today, rest in Me.  Come boldly to your place in Me.  Come boldly to My throne of grace knowing that here you will receive My mercy and grace to help you in your time of need.  Be built up in your Spirit by My Love and Word to you.  Know that when you are weak, in Me you are strong.
     
    Today I say to you, REST, REST IN ME!!!
     
    HEBREWS 4:
     
    10For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. 11Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

     12For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

     13Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

     14Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

     15For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

     16Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

    II CORINTHIANS 12:

    9And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

     10Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

     

    TRUST IN THE LORD

     

    TRUST IN THE LORD!  IT IS NOT OVER YET!!!  THE LORD THAT BEGAN THE GOOD WORK FOR AND IN YOU —- HE WILL COMPLETE IT!!!  THE LORD SAYS TO YOU TODAY:
     
    NOW IS  NOT THE TIME TO DOUBT OR TRY TO FIGURE IT ALL OUT.  JUST BELIEVE MY WORD TO YOU AND REST IN ME.  I WILL COME THROUGH FOR YOU.  I AM FAITHFUL.  I DO NOT LIE TO YOU.  DON’T LIMIT ME BY YOUR MEAGER EXPECTATIONS OF MY PROMISES TO YOU.  WAIT AND SEE.  I WILL FULFILL ALL MY PROMISES TO YOU IN WAYS THAT YOU CANNOT IMAGINE…I WILL DO EXCEEDING ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL THAT YOU CAN ASK OR THINK!!!  REJOICE….EVEN NOW….FOR I SAY….IT IS ALREADY DONE!!!
     
    EPHESIANS 3:
     
    14For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

     16That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

     17That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

     18May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

     19And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

     20Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

     21Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
