    DUST OF HIS FEET

    When you see the dark clouds gathering on the horizon, do not falter or fear.  Know that those clouds are but the dust of the Lord’s feet.  Wherever there is a storm or whirlwind He is in control and command.  He is more than able to keep His in and through the storms, and He will use the storms to remove obstacles that have stood in the way of the advancement of His plans.  The Lord will have His way in the whirlwind and the storm.

    Nahum 1:

    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.

    DROUGHT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE

    On the evening of July 4th, a blood red moon silently rose in the darkening sky. I doubt many even noticed the silent moon as it held its position right beside our city’s fireworks display, but I could not take my eyes from it.  As the patriotic music played, and the fireworks burst forth; I was filled with such a sense of bitter-sweetness at the acknowledgement of glories past and of coming troubles that would force a peoples into glories future. Since that night I have sought our Lord to show me more.  This is what I share with you.  I preface this word by reminding you that our God is a merciful and loving God.  His judgments are His mercy.   He wills that none of His should perish but that they all come to repentance and the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.  And He always– always commands us to FEAR NOT!
    DROUGHT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE
    There is a drought of My righteousness and My justice across the land. Men seek to follow their own ideas of righteousness, and little true justice comes forth for the oppressed. The mighty afflict the just, and the poor are trampled down. Too many who call themselves Mine have grown hard of heart in their own ease and comfort.  They seek to assemble themselves together in structures built of man’s hands, but in which there is no life or power of the Holy Spirit for I AM not there.  They take no stand for My righteousness or My justice.  They slumber in pews lulled by man’s words that comfort them into their state of self-righteousness.   I AM building My temple of living stones.  It is a structure that is alive and moves and has its being in Me.  It is powered and lead by the Holy Ghost and filled with My righteousness and My justice.  Mine cry out for the land before Me night and day.  I hear and send forth My judgments which suddenly burst forth on the drought-stricken land. Nothing will hold them back as they roll forth one after another until My purpose is accomplished. They will sweep through the cities, through the country, and through the dwellings of rich and of poor. Men will seek every means of escape, but there shall be none of themselves.  I shall shake them and wake them from their slumber and leave them with no comforts of man. As My justice runs down and My righteousness springs forth, Mine shall stand and shine in the glory for they are held in My hand. Mine shall be as beacons and draw many forth out of the darkness and into My light.  Repentance shall bring restoration.
    Amos 5:

    24 But let justice run down like waters and righteousness as a mighty and ever-flowing stream. (AMP)
    Acts 17:

    24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
    Isaiah 26:

    8 Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O Lord, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee. 9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. 10 Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the Lord. 11 Lord, when thy hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of thine enemies shall devour them.

    PLEAD YOUR CAUSE BEFORE THE LORD

    Enter into His court with praise.  God is good, His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever!  Be prepared to plead your cause before the Lord by arming yourself with His word to you. Pray and thereby put Him in remembrance of His  word to you. Stand before Him in faith knowing that He hears your plea and in turn will plead your cause for you.  The Lord God is the righteous Judge. His judgments will flow forth from His court and into your circumstances.

    Psalm 100:

    4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

    5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

    Psalm 35:

    1 Plead my cause, O Lord, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.

    John 15:

    7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

    FRESH MANNA

    Seek Me early each day.  You will find  fresh manna that I have provided just for you.  Feast on My words to you.  They are life and will lead you in the way you should go and the thing you should do.  My words will be fresh and new each day and enough to get you through.  Come back to My table each morning, and I will fill you again.  You will become strong in Me day by day, and little by little you shall overcome all.

    Deuteronomy 8:

    3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live.

    IF THE WORLD HATE YOU

    Do not fear.  I know all who are Mine. Your heart is given fully unto Me.  You seek Me for I Am your treasure, your pearl of great price for which you have given up the things of this world.  You worship and minister unto Me.  You are My called and chosen ones. I have given you instructions for service unto Me. You sense that now is the time to launch forth and are attempting to carry out the vision that I have placed in your heart.  But you have been met with great adversity.  You have become the recipient of great contempt and even hatred from those who you thought would help you. Do not be discouraged or think that those of the enemy have the power to thwart you.  I Am with you and will use all things for your good.  Follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, and you will see My hand make your way.  It is done!

    John 15:

    18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

    19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

    20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

     

    Romans 8:

    27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

    28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

    29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

    30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

    31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

    32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

    33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.

    34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

    35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

    36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

    37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
