"Real Possibilities"

***** "All things are possible to them that believe. Without Me, you can do nothing. But with Me, *all* things are possible.

*** I am the Vine; you are the branches. You must remain connected to Me, for I am your lifegiver. I give you life, and life more abundantly.

*** I give your lives (My) sweetness. I give your lives (My) kindness. I give your lives (of My) Spirit! I give your lives (My) peace! Alleluia...Praise the Lord forever.

*** Remember, greater am I who is in you, than he that is in the world. Choose this day (and every day) whom you will serve and follow. Will the lord of your day be self, sin and Satan...or will it be Me? (Will it be your Saviour?)

*** Great *is* my faithfulness. My mercies *are* new *every* morning. So seek Me...while I may be found. Learn of Me. Love Me. Serve Me."

"A Real Love"


"***** "This is what I request from My people: a trusting heart, a willing heart and an obedient heart. I do not desire obedience without willingness, for that will not produce trust.
I desire a true determination to seek Me, to love Me, to learn of Me, to see Me, to hear Me, to follow Me, to know Me and to obey Me as I lead (you).


*** I do not want forced obedience. I do not want rigid legalism and humanistic doctrine. I want love that is real. I want your respect. I want to be first in your lives. I want you to be 'in-synch' with Me. I want you to be near My heart, to even hear My heartbeat.
I long to be the Wind you hear, to be seen in the sky above you, to rustle through the grass in spring. I want you to know I am near and around you everywhere.

 *** My fingerprints are everywhere...everywhere you look...I've been there. You can see My handiwork in every aspect of life. My creation cries out as proof of My work.
So little is *truly* known of what I have made...there is so much beyond human comprehension. (Perhaps that is why I am God?)

*** Many will mock (you) and discredit you...they cannot conceive of (a) God that speaks so freely, openly and personally with His creation. Yet, I am alive. I speak. (Few listen.)


*** I want to communicate in so many ways. I enjoy speaking to My people. I yearn for them to listen to Me. I long for them to truly seek Me in My Word. I desire a people that will accept Me as truth, as reality and as love.


*** Can you not tell I am coming soon? You do not know the day or the hour (or even the year), but the signs are in place. Soon, the world (as you know it) will be history. Will anyone listen to the call of the Spirit? to My Holy Spirit? Will you *yet* resist?


*** Continue your search until you find Me in My glory. Never give up. I am reassuring you...ALL of you who seek Me with honesty and humility. (The proud will be cast down to the ground. Before pride comes a fall.)


*** I have promised I will *never* leave you and that is a promise you can believe. I will not forget you or cast you aside. I am not in the business of rejection (as My adversary does so well). I have loved you with an everlasting love. I have made an everlasting covenant with you. I am not a truce breaker (promise breaker) like man.


*** I do not lie. You know so little of Me. You have only scratched the surface. There is so much more I want you (all) to know of Me and My ways and intentions for you.


*** I am *not* a harsh, hard, cruel taskmaster like Satan. My yoke is easy and My burden is light. I will help you to overcome the world. Yes, troubles will come, but I will deliver you from all trouble. I will be with you in all difficulties. If you look for Me, eventually you will see (perceive, sense) My hand at work in every situation.


*** Yes, My mercies are new every morning and My benefits will sustain you, My children. I give you My daily bread: My Word...the Word of Life, the Living Word, the Word alive. I *quicken* My Word for you. I breathe life into My Word for you. My Word is not dead. It is not some ancient, dusty scroll. It is fresh, vibrant; teeming with energy and love and life. My Word is Me.


*** Contrary to popular belief, I *do* have *all* things under control. I see all. I know all. I know the beginning and the end.


***** Do not be anxious, My children. Do not be of a fearful heart. I will rescue you. Suffering may be for a short while, but I will come for you. You will sense My presence in your turmoil.


*** No, you are not exempt or immune from strife and tragedy. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but I will deliver you from them all. (It may not be in a way or method that *you* had planned)...It will be My hand...your lives are in My hand. Trust Me, for I love you dearly and deeply.


*** Faith works by love. Faith works by love. Blessed are the peacemakers. Put away strife, jealousy, bitterness and hatred. Walk in love. Maintain a pattern of good works. Help those who are weak...even pull some out of the fire.


*** Break the religious mold and come forth in new life: in life, free - and victorious!


*** Demonstrate love, not hate. Yes, 'love the sinner and hate the sin'.(Remember--I love *you* and you still sin...) Judge not, for you will be judged as you have done to others.


*** Jump in the River...My River. Find Me in your homes...Call out to Me: *I'm listening*! Swim in the River and be cleansed by the fresh, clean water of My Spirit.


***** Love. Joy. Peace. Three small words with very big meanings. Let these three rule in your hearts. Let My peace keep your minds. Let My joy fill you up. Let My love comfort you always.



*** Share these treasures throughout your days and throughout your lives. This is Me...this is My life being shown in you. Don't keep My light under a bushel. Show Me to the world...they need Me."

Shining Love

***** "You will not find your worth in any man. Your worth comes from Me. You are highly valued in My sight. *I* am your confidence. *I* am your strength. I give you power when you are weak. The sooner My children realize this, the faster they will know (of) My peace. Human works, on their own merit, are futile. Without Me you can do nothing, but with Me *all* things are possible. *** Also, you cannot get (your) worthiness from yourself, as you well know. Your (own) righteousness is as filthy rags. Only the righteousness of Jesus My Son will suffice. The Blood of the Lamb is your covering. It insures your worthiness to Me and to yourself. *** Human love, no matter how strong, can fail...yet My love will never fail. My love is forever. I have made an everlasting covenant with My people...with My Bride. *** Without My love, you will falter and fall. Believe on My love. Believe *in* My love. Believe that I truly do love you, My children. For some of you, that is an incomprehensible concept. My love -from above- is shed abroad in your hearts by My Holy Spirit. It is *not* of this world. It is supernatural; that is, above the level of (the) natural love. It is deeper, much deeper, than married romantic love. *** Oh My children, My Bride, taste and see that I am good! Come closer. Seek to hear Me...Seek to see Me in My glory and splendour...For, when you have *been in My love*, others will (then) sense it, and be awakened and suddenly (be) aware of Me. Love is contagious. (Just as hate is.) *** Love covers a multitude of sins. Love never fails. Love is patient...love is kind. Read and study My Word--see all the passages I've given to you concerning My love. *I AM LOVE*.*** Love your enemies. Do good to those who curse you. I will make you to be at peace with your enemies. Overcome evil with good. Let your light shine before all people...let the light of My love shine through you. *** Yes, there is another side to My love: chastening. I correct those whom I love. I steer you in the way you should go: gently, but firmly. I love you too much to allow you to continue in your way(s). Of course, I will not overrule your will...I desire willing hearts that *choose* My love (in all aspects).© ******* Definitions; suffice = be enough, be adequate, will satisfy/ falter = break, stumble, topple/ Bride = the universal body of believers *** Scriptures: Isaiah 64:6 "…and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags."/ I John 4:16b "God is love" / Jeremiah 31:3b "I have loved you with an everlasting love..."/ Romans 12:21 "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."/ Romans 5:5 "And hope makes not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given to us." *****

"Marvelous Works"


***** "Put away childish things. What is childish? Being selfish is number one. Self pity, lying, whining, blaming others, stealing, and so on ... are all negative childish traits. It is time to put on the new *man*. Be mature, complete, discerning and wise in your walk with your Father...  in your life with Me.

 ***Yes, I am a Father to you, My children ... but there is a time, an opportunity; for growth and development. My Spirit will 'quicken' you to My leadings; My direction(s). If you are truly filled - and continually refilled - with My Holy Spirit of promise, then you will be continually led and nurtured by the same.
As many as are led of My Spirit, are indeed sons of the Most High. These sons (and daughters, of course), must grow and not remain stagnant. This is a foundational, general, wise statement. If a thing, a person; is alive in Me, then they will undoubtedly grow and evolute (evolve). They will change, hopefully for the better.

*** For you see, My precious ones, I have great and mighty things in store for you...things too wonderful to comprehend at this moment. So much is prepared for those who love Me, and will love Me in (the) future.
 Yes, you have heard it said (often) I will do marvelous works: signs in the skies, signs on the earth. Many are not looking for My workings. So many are caught up in the worry of the day. So few look for My visitations and outpourings. Yet, I am still operating in My earth today. And so I will continue to do so!"



 ******* Scripture references:
 I Corinthians 13:11b "...when I became a man, I put away childish things.",
Ephesians 4:24a "...put on the new man...",
 Romans 8:11 "...if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwells in you."

"New Mercy"


***Psalm 118:24 "This is the day that the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."

 ******* "Every morning My mercies are new. I bring a fresh start - a fresh outlook - to each new day. I love those that love Me and I love those who seek Me early: not only early in their day, but also as a matter of priority. Seek Me before all other activities. Will you seek Me today...or will you ignore Me and put Me aside for later? I bring fresh 'bread' for you each and every day. (The time on the clock is not as important as your heart's motivation!)

*** When you put Me, your Lord, first...then all else follows. Everything else 'falls into place'. Did I not promise (that) if you seek Me first, then all other things will be added unto you?

*** I made the day. I created 'day'. I created 'time'. I created *you*. Will you not stop and acknowledge your Maker...your Creator...your Father?

*** Oh, taste and see that I am good. I am a good God. I am *THE* good God.

 *** Consider the lilies of the field. Look at the birds. See how carefree they are. (They just 'are'.) They do not fret and toil. They are examples to you of My *tender mercies*. I care for the flowers, the birds ... but mostly, I care for the creation of people. Of souls. Of lives ... of destinies.


******* Jump in the river! The water is fine! Come 'swim' with Me! Wash off the dirt and grime of this earth! Come clean in Me ... I cleanse and purify ... I make you cleaner than any fuller's soap.

*** Jump on in - the water is fine! Splash and be free...be liberated...as little children frolicking at the beach! Jump into My waves...let My 'current' carry you...dive into the 'deep end'...I am there! Let's go swimming! Swimming in My Spirit ... in My River!

******* What the devil means for evil I turn to good. I catch the 'crafty one' in his own craftiness. He falls into his own snares. I upset his devices. I send My angelic host to topple his empire. His wickedness and schemery are exposed by My leadings. I smash and crumble. I demolish the 'hosts of hell'. I am a type of 'Rambo'...I set at naught the 'evil empire' of Satan. He will *not* prevail.

*** I am King of kings and Lord of all eternity. He is under *My* authority. He will not have the last word: *I* will. I am Lord of all.


******* My army (including you: each of you) must be under My control; My direction. They must be at attention and *wait* for My command. Do not move until I give the word. Do not go out without spiritual armor. Do not go without My Spirit (anointing power) upon you. Do not go without Me.

 *** IF you go alone, you will be injured or destroyed. This enemy - yours and Mine - is too powerful for you to withstand alone. *Never* think you can fight this battle on your own...or even in a group. You *must* have My power, My anointing, My leadings, (and) My voice to guide you.

*** Do not treat this enemy lightly. Yes, he is under My feet, *but*...he still is very masterful in his evil. You cannot possibly fight him on your own. This is *very* dangerous. Many have fallen in this area of warfare.

*** Think of a weak, defenseless sheep...coming against a strong, crafty wolf. This is no match. The vulnerable sheep will be slaughtered. *But*...now think of the Shepherd...watching over His sheep. He can scare off the wolf. He can protect His sheep. *He* has the power and the wisdom to keep His flock safe and free from the wolf. This is Me. I am the Shepherd.

***In a little while, we'll be together in the 'eternal sheepfold'. Meanwhile, you must contend for the faith. Contend (defend and fight for) for Me...for Truth. Raise the banners high: banners of truth, love and righteousness. Remember (that) righteousness without love is like the Pharisees. Legalistic. Mean-spirited.

*** Raise the banner of life: of My Life...of My freedom! Seek to be truthful - in love - in all your daily matters. Seek truth and seek to make things right. Seek to forgive and to build up things broken down. Seek to restore...seek to heal. Seek to deliver. Seek Me. Seek Me: the fountain of life!


******* Seek Me daily...for each day is another revelation of My love and My grace."
 (fuller = one who cleanses by special process)
