Witness Him Now
Most everybody in the whole world knows that something is going on. There are things happening in the whole world that are far beyond our control. No one can predict what is about to happen, and no one can stop it. But the Word of God gives us insight.
What sorrow for those who drag their sins behind them with ropes made of lies, who drag wickedness behind them like a cart! They even mock God and say, "Hurry up and do something! We want to see what you can do. Let the Holy One of Israel carry out His plan, for we want to know what it is."
What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter. What sorrow for those who are wise in their own eyes and think themselves so clever. What sorrow for those who are heroes at drinking wine and boast about all the alcohol they can hold. They take bribes to let the wicked go free, and they punish the innocent.
Therefore, just as fire licks up stubble and dry grass shrivels in the flame, so their roots will rot and their flowers wither. For they have rejected the law of the LORD of Heaven's Armies; they have despised the Word of the Holy One of Israel. That is why the LORD's anger burns against His people, and why He has raised His fist to crush them.
The mountains tremble, and the corpses of His people litter the streets like garbage. But even then the LORD's anger is not satisfied. His fist is still poised to strike.
God is not playing. He is on His throne, and He will do what He pleases. It is time to self evaluate. It is time to turn to God so that we can live.
Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in Me. There is more than enough room in My Father's home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will ALWAYS be with Me where I am. (John 14:1-3)
When everything is ready! God is getting everything ready. He is getting US ready. AND WHEN EVERYTHING IS READY, God is going to come and get us so that we will always be with Him and with His Son. Don't LET your heart be troubled. Trust God. Trust Jesus.
These are not my words. This was written by Pieter Kirstein. I don’t know who this guy is, but his words are burning in my heart.
It's not about measuring up beloved, it's simply about growing up.
Don't try and be what you are not, especially in comparing yourself to those who are more mature and advanced Spiritually. When you compare yourself with others then you are insulting your own uniqueness within the body of Christ. Be an original and look to Jesus only, because what you look at, you become.
2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Be where you are in your SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT and choose to see yourself as beautiful, knowing that the Father looks at you through the eyes of perfect love, even though you might still be dealing with certain faults, failures, imperfections, habits, shortcomings and weaknesses.
See those things not as an opportunity to judge, ridicule, condemn or hate and reject yourself but give it all to Christ and embrace your need of Him to intervene on your behalf, because He is FAITHFUL to correct every fault, to turn every failure into success, to perfect all of those imperfections, break every habit, cause you to discover His all-sufficiency in every place where you come short and turn every weakness into the divine strength of His Spirit as He causes you to grow into the measure of the full stature of mature sonship.
LEARN TO FLOW GRACEFULLY WITH HIM THROUGH THE DIFFERENT SEASONS OF SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT - Mark 4:28 first the blade, then the ear, after that the full grain in the ear.
God told me that a child can only be to where it has grown. A child cannot be more than what it already is, so stop also trying to be God's child, because His child is who and what you already are.
HIS LOVE IS CONSTANT AND ENDURINGLY THE SAME AND HE WILL LOVE YOU INTO MATURITY AND WHOLENESS UNTIL YOU BECOME THE PERSON HE CREATED YOU TO BE.
The key is to keep your entire focus and trust in Him and to ask the Father to do with you every day what His Son declared in John 6:44 No man can come to Me, except the Father who has sent Me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
65 And He said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto Me, except it were given unto him of My Father.
NEVER FORSAKE THE TIME IT TAKES TO SEEK HIS FACE, FOR IT'S IN THE PRESENCE OF DIVINE LOVE THAT ALL THE REQUIRED CHANGE IS WROUGHT INTO MAN.
Philippians 3:16 Nevertheless, to what we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them who so walk, since you have us for an example.
The Holy Spirit told me this..."as we bore the image of the earthy fallen man, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man (Jesus). The beautiful thing about the gospel is that this heavenly Man came to conquer the earthy man through a demonstration of divine love and this is exactly the work of God unto sanctification in our lives. He lovingly and affectionately works out that which Christ has already accomplished on our behalf.
His victory becomes a reality more and more as we follow Him out of darkness into the freedom of His glorious light. All darkness in us becomes visible the closer we move to God, then when exposed, it is expelled through a demonstration of His conquering love. His delivering power progressively rescues His children from the grip and the influence of darkness in every area of their lives as they lovingly and willingly submit and yield to the divine influence.
It is never a matter of cruelty as the enemy would want us to believe but in fact a beautiful demonstration and a rescue from the powers which threatens to destroy us and keep us in bondage.
The destiny and purpose that God has for you requires for you to be mature and completely whole and healed of all emotional wounds, past abuse and hurts. God seeks to uproot and destroy the old foundation of our sinful fleshly ways and build himself into us as we allow Him to penetrate our depths otherwise we will not be able to handle and cope with the weight of glory which He has called us to walk in".
As you walk with Him through the purifying fires of seasonal trials embrace the pressures of your trials because it exposes deep wounds and places of deep hurt and deep brokenness and pain which must all be healed until you are made whole.
We are not ready to come out of the furnace until we can dance with Him in the fire, which speaks of being fully conquered by the beauty and fiery passion of divine love. God literally burns himself into us as a living piercing sword until He has weaved himself into the entirety of our entire beings, until He has brought us into agreement and oneness with himself - Hebrews 4:12.
“The key to transformation is yielding in trust to the LORD’s hand and touch - instead of fighting to do the work in your own human strength and effort. You cannot transform yourself into the image of the Lord. It is impossible! But what is impossible for you, is possible with Me. While you yield, keep your heart focused and connected to the Father’s heart.
You must sever all ties to false perceptions of Us - religious, fear-based nonsense that erects a false god in your heart and separates you from what is true and holy. What you are to persevere in is a God-conscious dependence, surrender, and trust. This is the path to glorious transformation that I Myself will work in you."
He's placing the mark of sonship on us in the fire because Father is authorizing us to take the harvest. We come out of this fiery furnace as mature manifested sons - Psalm 2: 7 I will declare the decree: the LORD has said unto me, You are my Son; this day have I begotten you.
8 Ask of me, and I shall give you the nations for your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.
9 You shall break them with a rod of iron; you shall dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

I don't think that people realize that there is a "high cost" for the choices we make. When we say, "I do" to the person we are married to, we are saying, "I give you everything - till death do us part." We give it all away. The same thing happens when we choose Jesus. There is a very high cost. Everything. I don't think in my lifetime we have counted the cost, but now we will. The time has come. Are we in or are we out.
A large crowd was following Jesus. He turned around and said to them, "If you want to be My disciple, you must, by comparison, hate everyone else - your father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters - yes, even your own life. Otherwise, you cannot be My disciple. And if you do not carry YOUR OWN cross and follow Me, you cannot be My disciple.
But don't begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first calculating the cost to see if there is enough money to finish it? Otherwise, you might complete only the foundation before running out of money, and then everyone would laugh at you. They would say, "There's the person who started that building and couldn't afford to finish it!"
"Or what king would go to war against another king without first sitting down with his counselors to discuss whether his army of 10,000 could defeat the 20,000 soldiers marching against him? And if he can't, he will send a delegation to discuss terms of peace while the enemy is still far away. So you cannot become My disciple without giving up everything you own." Matthew 14:25-33
We will give up everything, and we will gain it all. God is so good! But if we think we can straddle the fence in this hour, we are very mistaken. We will all deny ourselves, take up our cross, and follow Jesus. He gave everything for us, and now we will give everything for Him.
My facebook post from June 8th.
Sometimes - really all the time - when I read the Bible, I see this generation. I think that throughout history there are "chosen generations," and this is one of them. Just like the generation that saw Jesus walk on this earth and die, I think we will be the generation who gets to see His return. The signs are all there. It does not take a rocket scientist to see that something different is happening. It is both spiritual and natural.
So this morning I read something that rang true in my ears. Jesus said, "How I wish today that you of all people would understand the way to peace. But now it is too late, and peace is hidden from your eyes. Before long your enemies (principalities and powers) will build ramparts against your walls and encircle you and close in on you from every side. They will crush you into the ground, and your children with you. Your enemies will not leave a single stone in place, because you did not recognize it when God visited you." Luke 19:41-44
The LORD has been trying to get our attention for a long time. He has sent hardships that were meant to bring us back to Jesus, and He has sent kind people who did kind things, and we did not recognize any of it. Now I believe for some people, it is too late. You will never know the way to peace. That breaks my heart like it breaks Jesus' heart. But for others, I need for you to hear this...
Get rid of all evil behavior. Be done with all deceit, hypocrisy, jealousy, and all unkind speech. Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment, now that you have had a taste of the LORD's kindness.
You are coming to Christ, who is the living cornerstone of God's temple. He was rejected by people, but He was chosen by God for great honor. And you are living stones that God is building into His spiritual temple. What's more, you are His holy priests. Through the mediation of Jesus Christ, you offer spiritual sacrifices that please God. As the Scriptures say, "I am placing a cornerstone in Jerusalem, chosen for great honor, and anyone who trusts in Him will never be disgraced."
Yes, you who trust Him recognize the honor God has given Him. But for those who reject Him, "The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone." And, "He is the stone that makes people stumble, the rock that makes them fall."
They stumble because they do not obey God's word, and so they meet the fate that was planned for them. BUT YOU ARE NOT LIKE THAT, for you are a chosen people (generation). You are royal priests, a holy nation, God's very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for He called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:1-9)
Friends of mine, I hope that you recognize that this is the time that God is visiting us. He is drawing near to His people. Draw near to Him, and He will draw near to you. Come out of darkness, and come into the light. Let God heal you and set you free. Then you will experience all of the fullness of life and grace and peace that the LORD has to offer. The way to peace is not closed to you yet. Seek peace (Jesus) and find it (Him) while there is still time. For it is only in quietness and resting will you be saved.
Blessings to you. May the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely. And may your whole spirit, soul, and body be found blameless at His coming. For He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.
This is a facebook post from June 11.
This is what the Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says: "Only in returning to Me and resting in Me will you be saved. In quietness and confidence is your strength." Isaiah 30:15
Last night when we went to church, I got to talk to several of my friends. All of these women know Jesus intimately and live free. God has been kind to them all! But all of them had a need last night, and I think what they all needed was quietness and rest.
When I asked my first friend how things were going, she said, "I feel like I am getting in the way. I am reading my Bible, and I am doing Bible studies, and I pray (NOTE: This beautiful lady's ministry is prayer. It is her lifestyle. She delights in this part of her life.), but I keep asking myself 'why am I doing this. Is it because they pressed my buttons?'"
Now I know that this lady's biggest enemy is and always has been self-condemnation. There is something inside of her that is always telling her that she is not doing it right. I told her to face Jesus and open her heart wide and tell Him that she is guilty and sorry for believing a lie that it is about her. She did. Then I asked her, "Do you want good things for these people?" She said, "Yes." So does God, so you are on the same side as your Creator. Then we went on to talk about how we cannot save anyone. It is not our job and it is not in our power. All we can do is speak the truth in love and pray. Then I asked her to face Jesus with her heart wide open and let Him hold her. She did.
Then the next lady I saw said, "I need to talk." Now, the LORD has done amazingly kind things for this beautiful lady. He set her free in so many ways, and He taught her how to fight battles herself. She doesn't need anyone to take her to Jesus, she just goes there. She shines with the love of God. But now she is having to deal with the enemies inside of her husband. Things are coming to the surface that he doesn't want to deal with. I think we all are or will be in this situation. I told her to face Jesus and open her heart wide and REST. I watched her body relax. I saw her countenance change. She let go of the striving and the struggle. We cannot make choices for other people. All we can do is speak the truth and love them. Then we have to let it play out. Whatever choices someone else makes will lead to consequences. We have to let those consequences play out. Let him do whatever he thinks he needs to do. Pray. Let God move. Be there with arms wide open when God gets through dealing with him.
The next lady I talked to is my dear, sweet friend. She is so beautiful - radiant. She loves God with every fiber of her being, and she is so free! But her sister was buried this week, and grief was washing over my friend in waves. We all have been there or will be there. But Jesus said, "Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted." Isaiah 61 talks about mourning. Jesus came to heal broken hearts, set captives free, and to comfort those who mourn. He came to give beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and a garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness so that we will all be plantings of the LORD for His glory. So my friend turned her heart toward God to let Him fill her. When I got home, I realized that it is a SACRIFICE to God when we give thanks to Him and praise Him in the middle of our suffering. All I could think was, "Rejoice, and again I say, 'Rejoice!'" The LORD has done great things for us! My friend's sister is eating supper with Jesus. How cool is that?!?! But, can I tell you, one of the hardest spirits I have ever had to fight (other than religion) is sorrow. Yes, it is a spirit. And it is so easy in times of mourning to let sorrow consume us. If sorrow is in your heart, and you want to get rid of it, face Jesus and open your heart wide. Tell Him you are guilty of embracing sorrow. If you do this, that spirit will leave. Then begin rejoicing. Give God the praise He deserves.
Then when I got home another friend called. This lady is amazing. God has done such kind things for her, and He has filled her with such wisdom. But yesterday she had to ask her daughter and her family to leave. She found out they were using drugs in her house. She could not allow that, but her heart broke as she watched her daughter and her grandchildren leave. Then she said that if she reached out for her grandchildren, her daughter would use that to get what she wants. My friend said, "That's what I use to do." I then prayed for God to give her wisdom in how to deal with this situation, then I asked her to face Jesus and let Him hold her heart. She told me that there was confusion in there. I asked what kind of confusion? She said, "Anxiety and fear." I said, "Get them out of your heart. Tell God you are guilty and sorry for allowing anxiety and fear in." She did this, and the fear and anxiety left. Then I took her to Philippians 4:6. "Don't worry about anything. Instead pray about everything tell God what you need and thank Him for what He has done, and the peace of God which passes all understanding will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus." Then we went to God together telling Him that we need Him to protect her children and grandchildren. We need Him to turn their hearts like water toward Him. We need Him to send His kindness that leads to repentance - whatever that looks like. We need Him to stop the madness! And we went on and on. Then we began to praise God for His promises concerning our children. "All of our children will be taught by the LORD, and great will be the peace of our children." "I will fight those who fight you, and I will rescue your children." And on and on we went praising God.
So then I woke up this morning with Isaiah 30:15 on my mind. "Only in returning to Me and resting in Me will you be saved. In quietness and confidence is your strength." So I want to speak to us all.
Be quiet. Rest. Let God do what only God can do. Rejoice. The battle is not yours, it is His. R. E. S. T.
I want to talk. It is funny, one of the most momentous things that has ever happened to me has happened to me the last few days, and I can't tell anyone. I don't think anyone will be able to hear this one, and I think the whole world will want to stone the messenger if I speak. So do I remain silent? No. I don't know how.
Eleven years ago God started speaking to me, and everything He said was, "Judgment is coming. Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand." I had to speak what He told me. No one wanted to hear what I had to say. Then in 2011 God gave me the Parable of the Raccoon. My message was still repent, but this message of repentance led to freedom, deliverance and healing. That message was rejected, too, until just recently. It is a spiritual message. There are forces at work that we cannot see.
So now a new message has come to me, and it is big. It is also spiritual. I tremble just thinking about it. If my other messages were rejected, what will happen to this one.
My whole life I have never understood what was happening. I just walked in my little micro world trying to follow Jesus. But everywhere I look, things are broken. Our country is broken. The government is broken. The education system is broken. The church is broken. The family unit is broken. Relationships are broken. Nothing works. People are trying to fix things, but we are all so very broken. Every segment of our society - broken.
Then five or six weeks ago it came to my attention how broken things are. For the first time I was exposed to the Cabal (worldwide dark evil) and ritual abuse and drinking blood and child trafficking and child sacrifices - all at the highest levels. The FACTS are right there. But when I posted the video last week that showed Joe Biden touching little girls - women, there was an outcry. "You can't say that." And instead of looking at the facts at hand, people started pointing the finger at others. It is like there is so much darkness and confusion that we can't see or acknowledge what is right in front of our eyes.
Then one of my facebook friends sent me a link. I don't think this lady likes me very much, but she felt compelled to send the link to me. I will forever be grateful to her. This link led me to a young, beautiful lady who spoke truth. The unadulterated truth. And it rocked my world. She exposed the "light" side of evil. For those of us who are repulsed by the "dark side," the enemy has prepared a place for us to belong - the church. WHAT?!?! The good guys.
So I backed away from what she was saying so that I could look at the big picture objectively. Just facts. Just truth. Just Jesus. Not all the micro stuff (real people), but the macro. To find out what this lady said that moved me so much - I WILL FOREVER BE CHANGED, go to Probably Alexandra and watch An Inconvenient History. This video takes us back to the beginning of time and brings us to the present.
So I am looking at what the Bible says in light of what this lady is telling me. When we come to Jesus, we come into a marriage relationship with the God of the universe. This is a very holy thing. It is a being set apart thing. It is an all encompassing thing. It is a - forever I will be yours and no one else thing. It is a marriage. It is a relationship. It is about me and Him, not me and anyone else. I WILL NOT GIVE MYSELF TO ANOTHER! Then what happens is that when we meet other people who are married to Jesus, we click. Something happens because we are both married. That is the church - where two or three are gathered in My name. I never realized that before. It is not a building.
This relationship with our husband is not about works, even though we work. It is not about saving anyone, because we can't do that, only He can. It is about becoming a bride worthy of our King. So then I started looking at the church. I have been going to church since the time I made Jesus my LORD, but when I look back on my time in the churches, it was broken. WHY? I think it is because we didn't have much in common. The only thing we really had in common is that we wanted to do "good" things. Doing good things is not enough. Being married to the King is what is important.
So back Alexandra. She presents truth, the unadulterated truth. She uses FACTS and takes every FACT back to the Bible. WOW! It is written, you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. If that is true, then a lie will keep us in bondage. She exposes the bondages. From the beginning of time, we have been lied to, brainwashed, mind controlled. Could that be true for the church? I think so. The place we call the church may not really be the church. Real people are. Those who are married to the King are the church. Could we who have been going to church really be in bondage? I think we are. Jesus said, "If you live in the light as He is in the light, you will have fellowship one with another and the blood of Jesus Christ will cleanse you from all unrighteousness." I don't see people of the church living in the light - bringing things to the surface - confessing and repenting of their sins. I see people hiding what they really think or what they really want or what they are really doing. As long as we continue to live in darkness, the truth cannot win.
So I now have friends that I "click" with. The bride of Christ is coming together. It makes me happy, but it also makes me realize that most of the world is not ready. The Bible says, "They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshipped and served the creation rather than the creator." It makes me sad that I can see this happening in the church.
Alexandra is the first person I have ever met who speaks the whole truth. There is no agenda in this lady. There is no putting anyone on a pedestal. There is nothing watered down. There is just Jesus. My goodness! So why am I trembling? Truth is dead in the streets and anyone who speaks out for truth makes himself a prey.
LORD, send out Your light and Your truth. Let them lead us, let them bring us to Your holy hill and to Your tabernacle. I ask this in the mighty name of Jesus. AMEN
The end of the world is coming soon. Therefore, be earnest and disciplined in your prayers. MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins. Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay. God has given each of you a gift from His great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God Himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to Him forever and ever! Amen. (1 Peter 4:7-11)
Peter wrote this 2000 years ago. Hummm. It sounds like he is watching what is happening to us - the coronavirus, the economy - and giving us advice for right now. Pray. Love. Share. Serve. And who would have ever thought that the "spiritual gifts" would be to speak truth and to help others. 😍 Doing these things bring great honor and glory to God.
LORD Jesus, I am asking that You would help us all to bring You great honor and glory at this moment in time. I am asking this Your mighty name. AMEN
We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in His love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face Him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world. Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced His perfect love. (1 John 4:16-18)
Can I just tell you that something happens inside of our heart when we begin love people, to be for people and not against. When we stop judging others and instead try to be on their side, something spectacular happens inside of us. Fear leaves. Uncertainty leaves. Feelings of worthlessness and inadequacy leave because we have FINALLY started treating other people like we would want them to treat us.
Guys, people are not the enemies. We are all in this together. We have all grown up in a time period when we were fed lies. Hollywood, the internet, fake news - deception ruled the land, and many fell into the traps. Some escaped. Some were rescued. Others are used to spread lies. Others are abused. Still others are the ones who do the abusing. Some are kind. Some are cruel. But can I give a witness - except for the grace of God, we could all be in any one of those categories.
When we can start to look past the outward appearance and even the choices other people make and start to look into the heart of that person, we will see God. Somewhere in every person God lives, because all people are made in the image of God. And all people have a very real enemy who wants to kill them, steal from them, and destroy them because they look like God. The enemy hates us. And even though we don't realize it, we are all on the same side. And if that is the case, it is time that we start fighting for each other instead of being against. Let's speak the truth in love. Let's encourage. Let's exhort. Let's praise. Let's honor. Let's see the good instead of the bad. That doesn't mean that we cover up sin. That means that our love covers the sinner while God exposes and defeats the sin.
When we start doing this, love wins. We start to live like Jesus in this world, and when we do, we are not afraid on the day of judgment. We face God with confidence because we are doing what He has asked us to do here on this earth. LOVE! Love wins!
May our love grow more and more perfect as we walk with Jesus in the coming days.
I am passionately in love with the Word of God. Since 1984 I have opened my heart wide to receive its manna. In times past God would give me a nugget here and another nugget there. Then in 2009 the LORD did something different. He broke the seal that was on His Word. Daniel 12:4. "Daniel, keep this prophecy a secret; seal up the book until the time of the end, when many will rush here and there, and knowledge will increase." We are now living in the time of the end - many rush here and there and knowledge has increased. So now the seal is broken. What I see, I now write or speak or shout from the rooftops. Our God is coming! He is coming with power! He is coming to set captives free, to heal broken hearts, and to comfort those who mourn. He is coming to give beauty for ashes and the oil of joy for mourning and a garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness that we all may be plantings of the LORD for His glory. I need for you all to know that Facebook is my platform and so is my website. I am about to become very obnoxious with the Word of God. For those of you who don't want to hear what I have to say, please block me or unfriend me or whatever you want to do. I will love you anyway. Blessings, my friends. May God turn your heart like water toward Himself so that you can find this glorious freedom. LORD, take every one of our thoughts captive to the obedience of Christ Jesus. Tear down every stronghold. Cast out every imagination and every "high thing" that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. I ask this in the mighty name of Jesus. AMEN
The scripture says, "May you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers."
