A Great Shout Arises

A Great Shout Throughout the Land:

Sounding  a Trumpet

A cry is going up to Almighty God. It’s so loud; it’s all I hear.

How can one have peace when others are in torment?

The heavenly Father’s love is rising in this earth, but it’s not appearing as most think … While it’s the morning star of the Creator’s spirit arising in those awake, it’s falling upon those asleep.

With a belly swelling with increasing wickedness, the earth has opened her mouth to her Creator pouring out a great smoke full of torments. Lifted to His ears are the cries of the innocent, poor in spirit, neglected, abused, forsaken, and of the silent sufferers. It’s now time for Him to act. Their Creator is arousing to heal and restore as the yelps of the tormented billow up to His ears.

A supernatural spiritual blindness hoovers over mankind. The dawning of the New Day will awaken the sleepers with a voice of a trumpet sounded in the midst of their souls. Awake for He arises from His Holy Habitation with healing in His wings expelling all wickedness.

The cries are the loudest from the voiceless. Those tormented day and night at the expense of the lusts of mankind and their merciless governance. They have been treated as insignificant and as objects to fulfill the lusts of the belly. They’ve been abused and counted as nothing for greedy gain. The abomination of the daily sacrifice of their lives at every meal has become full-grown. By His own hand, their Creator will release them from their prisons; the hands of cruelty.

Mankind is blind to what they create. They’ve created a tortuous place in which they torture those deemed less then themselves, and in doing so they perpetuate their own misery and suffering. Do to others as you desire to be done to you. Luke 12:35-48, Matthew 18:21-35 They cruelly treat others “lower” than themselves and forget that they too are beasts seeking for the mercies of God; One who tells us to treat others as we would want to be treated. Should we seek His mercy for our suffering, and yet not offer the same to those we have been given governance over, especially the animal kingdom? People forget the animal kingdom belongs to God and that He put us in a place to be faithful loving stewards of creations of His affections. But we have made them the object of our feasts, lusts, celebrations, greed, and slaves serving a very harsh and thoughtless master. Sound familiar? This is one HUGE area greatly dismissed by many when they consider the everlasting kingdom of heaven coming to earth, but God has not forgotten. Isaiah 65:25

God is not arousing with torments in His wings as we have done and imagined. His ways are far superior to our beastly ways. He does what we didn’t do, love. Anyone who knows the love of God knows it’s far greater and more powerful than force and brute strength. It’s a power that burns as a refining fire on the inside to create something truly new inside and out.  Those who know the heavenly Father also know His greatest power flows through weakness and love.

While perfect love drives out fear, its mirror reflection in an un-renewed heart is shame. Jeremiah 31:19 In the face of His love, sin feels like intolerable shame that we can’t escape from until we let go of what is causing the shame. His love serves a a mirror and exposes the cruelty of our own hearts, which creates an overwhelming shame thus a desire to “hide” ourselves. Yet, in these last days there will be nowhere to hide as all that is hidden is being brought into the light. To hide from our own flesh only causes the shame to intensify. Shame is what we experience that leads to repenting and turning to love. Our flesh will no longer hide the abominations within. Numbers 11:20, Revelation 16:2 Since it is our flesh we serve,  it will show the truth of our true nature. Jeremiah 31:9

In the lusts and vanities of the world, the animal kingdom is overlooked to such an extent that few consider their endless hell created and perpetuated by mankind. How can one expect mercy on his “beastliness” if he is unwilling to give it to another for a fleeting craving? This contradiction is one of the greatest delusions of our time. It’s a great abomination as it is the expression of hell, torments, and the beast nature of man, thus his “markings” that he is a beast verses a son of God, who is love. Removing this abomination of cruelty in our lives allows our spirits to ascend as sons/daughters of God, otherwise we remain as we are. Further, it’s a reflection of the abomination of desolation for we have attributed a horrific reality that we created as an acceptable reflection of and offering to a loving Creator, who knows every sparrow. Jeremiah 7:21-23

Our healing and renewal is deeply connected to creation’s healing. We are all intertwined as God’s creation. For the days that lay ahead, I believe this is one of our first signposts … will we treat the animal kingdom as we desire God, who is far superior, to treat us?  Jeremiah 31:21 In abundant mercy, loving-kindness and care? Will we cease to torment them for the vain lusts of our bellies and our greed for the money made by them? Will we show that we have learned what it is to love the weaker vessels as we desire God to love us? Or will be as the Israelites when they lusted for meat in the wilderness when headed to the promise land? Numbers 11:33-34 

God cares deeply for His creation. He will deliver all from those stronger then they. He gave us charge over it. How have we handled such an awesome responsibility and gift? He is coming to see how we have managed our house. Will He find mercy? Or mercilessness? During my time with Him this past month, He has taught me many layers of understanding in this area. Our healing is connected to a healing heart toward creation. We can’t continue to embrace cruelty and be freed from our own suffering. We can’t continue to feast on death, dead flesh, and what is sown in darkness and be transformed into spiritual living beings of light.

Arise my heavenly Father from Your Holy Habitation and let Your love and righteousness break forth in this earth, Your creation needs Your love, for it has not known the true nature of Your love.

Transformed by the Words of God

Transformed by the Words of God

It’s not hearing words from another about God that changes us (opens our eyes, changes our desires, renews our mind), it’s hearing the words God speaks directly to our souls through whatever medium. Romans 10:15-17, John 6:45, 1 Thessalonians 4:9

God can speak to our soul through another; but any truth received is all His doing within us. Thus, it’s His voice we must seek to know and hear within us; for that is where He meets us. Others can point the way, share what they’ve learned and experienced, but we each must seek to hear the sweet whisperings of our heavenly Father to us personally. Hebrews 8:10

John 6:63 “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.

How do we hear His voice so His truth becomes ours? Through the circumstances in our lives; for His truth is real and directly impacts our reality.

By taking time each morning to be still and listen in a private communion with God is how we hear His counsel. How do we know unless we take time to listen? How to listen unless we quiet our soul and tune into His voice, which is often crowded out by all the noise of life?

What we seek is to hear thus know is His love and His nature that makes up His love. We seek is to hear His instruction regarding the workings of our soul, and how our soul is interacting with the world around us. As we hear His counsel, we follow. His words are the words of life; if we will walk in them. They teach us about love, and following them is how we abide in love. John 15:10

Our life reveals our truth. Our words, choices, desires and actions reveal the truths we hold. The universal purpose we all share is to love God and love others as ourselves, thus loving ourselves as well. Mark 12:30-31 It isn’t a selfish love but a holy love that comes from the Father to us; then toward ourselves and out to others. Proverbs 4:23, Luke 6:45

Only God can teach us and change our hearts to be able to truly love in honor and without hypocrisy, for in each of us the dishonor and hypocrisy (trying to appear loving; yet lacking love in our hearts) runs deep. Romans 12:9 Our part is to seek and listen as the situations we face are speaking to us and revealing the issues of our hearts. To seek to “see” our part in creating our irritations, pain, suffering, illnesses, discord, contentions with others, and not focusing on the faults of others, but our own is how we learn to love. When we know love, then we are on the path to becoming a vessel love.

Some quibble over doctrine; but each comes to the understanding of the truth as they listen to God speaking the words they need to hear when they need to hear them. Loving-kindness often gets pushed aside in conflicts over doctrines. Don’t judge or argue over a truth someone holds; for only God can truly write the truth on one’s heart and open up one’s eyes to see His truth. He gives the increase. 1 Corinthians 3:7 Share truth in love, and trust God to put truth deep into a soul; as He does in yours. Know we are all God’s workmanship, and if by some grace we are used in others’  lives for good; it’s all God’s work. Ephesians 2:10 Don’t seek doctrine; but seek pure love that underscores all true doctrine. Then, you will begin to understand doctrine as you should. Romans 12:9-21, 1 Corinthians 13:2 Love is the purpose of the commandments; thus seek this foundation in all you do and learn. 1 Timothy 1:5

Sometimes we try to force truth on another, but this isn’t how truth is manifested in someone’s life. You can see this dynamic is true in your own life. You’ve heard truths in your past, but you weren’t prepared or able to receive them until you learned through your life. The manifestation of truth in our physical lives is how the truth becomes our truth. Be patient with yourself and others on the journey of learning and gaining pure truth in all love.

If you judge and cast judgment, then judgment is what you receive. If mercy is what you give; mercy is what you receive. Matthew 5:7, Romans 2:1 Only God is qualified to judge for only He is truly good and pure. We are to discern truth verses lies among spirits, but leave the judgment of a soul up to God.

Seeking is very important; for it leads us to the light/truth. Seeking moves us toward God’s presence so we can become a part of His presence. As you seek love you will find it’s impossible to love; impossible without God’s spirit in you. But all thanks be to our Father, who gives us His spirit in Christ to do in us the impossible; to love in all purity. And this hope is fulfilled when Christ resurrects us to eternal life.

As you seek and find, desire to be the love you “see”, and desire to be the kindness you desire. For we reap what we sow. In desiring to love, thus desiring to walk in His ways; God gives us the grace to enable to us to grow in love; for this is His will. 2 Corinthians 12:9

Being a Delight to God

Being a Delight to God

We desire to be a delight, thus give great joy, to those we love .. how are we a delight to our heavenly Father?

The Creator of all, the heavenly Father, possesses all things, so what do we give Him? Delight. How? By walking according to the wisdom He gives us (not the wisdom of the world), and letting Him establish our steps by that wisdom. Micah 6:8

When we seek, listen and obey our heavenly Father’s wisdom in our lives, it creates a life of joy, peace, happiness, rest, blessing, and love. When we are abiding in this state it greatly delights God. His delight is seeing us in pure delight. Proverbs 16:20, Matthew 6:33 His Spirit manifests the perfect loving Father to us in every way.

My step-daughter moved in at the beginning of the year. Since she has been here, she has been absorbing and walking by the truths we’ve taught her about how to live; all in accordance with true wisdom from above. James 3:13-18 The results of her heeding our words have already started to bear beautiful fruit in her life. The exceedingly great joy for me and my husband is to see her abiding and growing in joy and true happiness that flows from those truths. Could parents desire anything more than for a soul, who is brought under their wings, to be listening and following the wisdom of true life and abiding in the abundant good fruit it produces? For this is to abide in the presence of God.

Numbers 14:8 “If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, ‘a land which flows with milk and honey.’

In a similar manner, the heavenly Father experiences delight in us. The wisdom He calls us to seek and abide in creates a life of satisfaction, peace, meaning, and love. Thus, when we follow this wisdom, it not only honors Him as our Father whom we obey, but our obedience shows we trust and love Him. John 15:10, John 14:15, 1 John 5:3 When our lives are a reality of delights of a pure heart, that gives Him great joy. The result is praise He desires, not contrived or forced, and the worship (loving and honoring Him) He desires, in spirit and truth.

God desires us to be in the fullness of joy, which we do by following His commandments/wisdom of pure love. Matthew 25:23, John 15:11

Proverbs 11:20 Those who are of a perverse heart are an abomination to the Lord, But the blameless in their ways are His delight.

To manifest this joy in our lives, the heavenly Father allows our situations to correct us when we are straying off the path of righteousness. Walking counter to the truth, which establishes love, creates pain and suffering. The pain and suffering are there to “tell” us to stop doing whatever is causing the pain (this can take deep reflection, seeking, and listening as the lies are many and layered) and seek His wisdom so we can experience peace and joy, thus experience Him in our lives.

Proverbs 3:12 For whom the Lord loves He corrects, Just as a father the son in whom he delights.

Jeremiah 9:24 But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the Lord.

We are to diligently seek the heavenly Father’s wisdom, which is the understanding of how to love Him, ourselves and others. Proverbs 3:15-16, 4:6, 16:16  This wisdom to be the guide to all our thoughts. 2 Corinthians 10:5 It entails thinking and acting in honor, mercy, justice, trustworthiness, honesty, grace, humility, peace, and loving kindness.

We seek understanding to the nature of these characteristics, but how they play out in each moment, we trust God to direct. We don’t rely on our understanding for the moment because we are not all knowing, but we trust His prompting in the moment that applies His wisdom to our situations. It isn’t about gaining wisdom, then running our lives. It’s about gaining understanding of the spirit of God, wisdom, and letting Him govern our lives by that wisdom.  Jeremiah 10:23, Proverbs 3:5-6

Psalm 147:10-11 He does not delight in the strength of the horse; He takes no pleasure in the legs of a man. The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, In those who hope in His mercy.

This humbling of ourselves to our heavenly Father’s will is letting Him establish our righteousness and be our righteousness. This is also what it means to “accept Christ into our heart”. It means to let the word of God, Christ, govern our heart (the seat of our desires) in every way. It’s to move out of lies and deceit (mankind’s wisdom governing our heart) and let His truth establish our present reality as He wills. Thus we cultivate a very personal and intimate engagement with our God inside out.

Righteousness, love, and holiness are views of God from three different angles.

In righteousness all actions are done correctly. Love is what walking in righteousness looks like. When you walk in righteousness, you create an environment that is extremely loving to all. Righteousness, which creates love, makes the environment  holy because where true love is that is where God is because He is love.

Seek to be one in whom God delights.
