"I Am Jealous For Your Love"

"So many things take your attention. They take your time. they steal your thoughts. They are many, and they are relentless.

These *things* are often considered (as) 'good'. Music, computer talks, study, family matters, working, playing, laughing, and even praying...are all good in themselves.

But, they are too 'bossy'.

Things can control. Things DO control. Things are considered 'mammon'...and things become idols...or things of worship and adoration.

Things can become addictive, habitual, mind-numbing...and soul-snatching. Be wary when things run your life.

***

*I* am the Ruler of your life...if you have given Me that control.

I am the authority...the one in charge...the LORD of your life. (OR, am I?)

Yes, you have claimed Me as your 'Lord and Saviour'. Yet, you continue to ignore and defy Me. How long shall I bear this?

My heart is grieved. I am desiring your voluntary love towards Me. I will not coerce you to love Me. Never!

I desire affection that is willing...not a bondage. Freely come to me...and freely love Me.

I make NO robots!

***

I search for broken, shattered hearts. I am near to the broken-hearted. I desire to come into these empty hearts...into YOUR heart.

You need Me. I created you (all human beings) to be with Me...to have a void only I can fill.

***

I am your God and your true love. I love you as no other! I love you (each and every one of you) with (the) deepest devotion and desire for good.

My love is not of the world. My love is supernatural: *above* the natural. It is not of this world."

"WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT?"

Love your enemies.
How can this be, you ask?

WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT?
HOW CAN YOU LOVE SOMEONE WHO HAS HURT YOU?
HOW CAN YOU HUMANLY LOVE YOUR WORST ENEMY??

Why would God tell His followers to do this? What is He saying?? What is the point?
***
Maybe it IS impossible for us humans. On a human scale, it would be ridiculous to actually forgive one's abuser, right? How on earth can a mere mortal let go of his anger and forgive horrific offenses done to him? How?

Perhaps it is because of God and His power. He is a Spirit, and His ways are just that: spiritual.
They are not fleshly things, they are higher. God, in His wisdom, is far smarter than us. He knows why we do things, and (the) reasons behind every action and thought. He KNOWS our minds, our hearts.

God Almighty is man's creator. He made us. He knows what makes us tick. He knows the worst about us all.
***
God works in the supernatural...the realm of invisible. He knows a lot more than we can ever perceive. He is (the) most powerful, most intelligent... and (the) most vast and awesome.

He Is...He Was...and He Will Be.
He has always been...and He will always be.

***
In becoming humble towards an all-powerful, all-knowing Supreme Power, we start to accept and - try out - God's ideas. We may not believe any of it, really.
We may harbor serious doubt.

***
We may hate Him, and His ways.
But.
But...we somehow KNOW that He is real...and He is in charge of it all. We sense that He somehow knows us all right(!)... and He is *sorta scary* up there. (Wherever He is...wherever *eternity* is.)
We don't want to really get Him mad.

***
So...we read the Bible. (Or try to.)

It talks about Jesus in the *new Testament part*. Jesus is God in the flesh. He is a hybrid, a God-Man. He is one of us, but not really.

***
He is a superhero donning human flesh and clothing. He walks among the dirt roads, with the people of His day. He seems like a regular person, right?

NO!! He is weird!

***
He is a strange dude! He does stuff no one has ever done before!
He heals a blind man.
He makes food appear out of thin air.
Is He magic? Yes and no. He does stronger, better, cooler magic tricks. STRONGER. BETTER. FASTER. COOLER.
He actually *out-does* the magicians of His day.

***
Jesus is the Messiah that was foretold in the *old Testament part* of the Bible book. His appearance upon the earth fulfills the old Testament prophecies (predictions)) about Him.
He is not the average Joe.
He is more than a carpenter.

***

Look out! What the heck is that?? It is J.E. S. U. S.
He is out on the lake at night. Is he on drugs, or what? Nope. He's just showing off a little...walking on top of the water.

Okay.

(*sideways glance*)
***

Now what? What's He up to now?

Oh, just the usual dead-raising. Wha? What? What are you saying? Does He bring up zombies for the earth? Is He into voodoo?
No. He just brings some people back to life, from the dead. He sure is different. And weird. He's like a freak. The freak of His day. Maybe He should perform in a carnival...?

***

So, what else did this Jesus character do while He was on the earth?? Um, He got a whole lot of demons to come screaming out of some naked goth guys who lived in a cemetary.

***
And He ate sometimes at a diner with the the *bad people*...those from the 'wrong side of the tracks'. He was nice to the hookers, but He never went to them for their *tricks*.

***

JC also was a funeral disrupter. Once He reportedly ran into a street processsion. It was a young boy...dead...in a coffin. He just did what He did. He did His thing.

He raised the guy up from pure death. Must have been exciting.

***

He (also) walked right through doors and walls. This *Holy escape artist* manuevered *invisibly* quite a bit, slipping unseen through crowds.

He was like the wind...never knowing when or where He'd pop up.

He could make boats move at supersonic speeds across lakes.

He made arms grow out, fevers disappear, money appear. He caused fisherman to catch humongous takes of fish.

He did quite a lot.

***

But, the best thing He did, and still does, is forgive.


He forgave me when I asked him.

I know it. I feel it. I felt it. I felt His Spirit upon me...and I am so glad.
Why? Because I was a VERY bad, rotten, messed-up, sinning, wretch- of- a- disaster.

(Warning: Humans may never forgive me, but God does...and I hope someday the people will too.)
***

I am forgiven and stand clear before Him.

Forgiven.
***

To that, I will gratefully say *Amen*.

"Can You Hear Me Now?"

"I have conditioned you to hear My voice.
Another you will not hear...you will not listen...you will disregard it. It is just noise to your spirit.. This (false) voice claims to be Me. It is (obviously) the evil one. He is a 'wannabe'. He wants to be Me.

The evil one desires My position. He covets My authority...My rule...My supremacy. He is very angry that he is below Me...(and) that I cast him out of My Heaven! He wants to be Me...therefore he attempts to mimic Me (at) every chance he gets.

-pause-

He knows that his time is short...it is indeed limited. I control his very existance. I am the one who 'pulls strings' (on him). He is *not* in control, I am. I am above all. All.

***
The enemy will come in 'as a fool'...but I will definitely lift up My standard against him. He will NOT prevail over Me. His kingdom shall fail and wither away.

-pause-

(So) be on guard for the anticipated attacks of My foe. He is an avid fighter, but I am stronger. I am mighty in My power.
Greater am I, than him. My kingdom shall prevail...shall conquer...shall extinquish the evil kingdom of darkness, death and destruction.

My kingdom is full of light...of love...of power...of My presence...My glory...My very Being. Forget darkness...come into my light!

***

Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. Look up! for your redemption draws near. I am closer now (to you on earth) than ever before in history.

I am with you in My Spirit...and I will soon break through the heavenlies to 'touch down' upon the earth once more. The Father has heard the cries of the afflicted ones. He is 'waiting in the wings' to come and comfort those who cry to Him.

You ask, where are You? Where are You? Are You (in) hiding? Are You angry? Is it time for judgement? For wrath? For My fury to be unleashed?

Yet a little while. Yet a little while. Soon these things will come upon the earth...but there still is time to offer your lives to Me. The door is still open.

-pause-

Clap your hands, oh My people! Yes, clap and shout and rejoice! Praise the coming King! The King of kings and the Lord of lords! Jesus the Christ! Jesus the Messiah! Yeshua (the) Messiah!
His glory surrounds Him. His brilliance and splendor envelope Him. His majesty, honor, grace and power are visible (apparent) to all.

***
At one point in future time, ALL will bow before Him...for He IS worthy. He is worthy, above all, to be praised. You will see. You will know. All the nations of the worlds will one day realize the majestic, awesome, Holy presence of The King.

****
We await Your visitation, oh Lord. We honor You as King above all kings. We worship You and love You. We fear You and have respect for You.

We acknowledge Your unmatched greatness...Your unparallelled prestige and splendor. We know there is no other God besides You. You are HOLY. You are righteous. You are loving, full of kindness and known by Your tender mercies.

Hold us to Your heart, Oh Lord. Keep us with You forever. You are our King and our Father.

*******

It is appointed unto man -unto the human race- one time to die. Each human has a time to leave this life...and go on to the next. Many are not ready. Many do not realize the truth, the reality; of eternity.

There is a bleak future for those who reject Me....I know their hearts. I see how they've reacted to My pleadings, My callings, My word.

I have seen their every breath, their every step, (known) their every thought. I have watched their lives unfold...as they were formed in their mother's womb...and on into their senior days. I have heard their every word spoken...every prayer uttered...every curse put out into the ether. I've heard it all. I've seen it all.

I know all...yet I (also) forgive all. *ALL*. I am the great Forgiver. I freely offer My forgiveness to all. All who call upon Me, will be saved. I am not willing that ANY should perish.

Yes, I see all. I've seen every sin committed by all mankind throughout history. I've seen (and heard) every evil thought, deed, misdeed, action, reaction...everything is in My sight. It is all open before me. All sins are laid bare in front of My eyes. Nothing can be hidden from My gaze.

***
Despite the utter wickedness of humans, I offer forgiveness from all sins...from all offenses...from all evil...from all iniquity...from all that is corrupt, vile and evil.

My hand is not shortened, that it cannot save. I still am 'in the saving business'. I am freely received. My salvation offer is free.

It is open to all...and free to all. You can (all) come to Me without price, without cost. Salvation is a free gift.

***
I stand at the door and knock. I am knocking at the 'door to your soul'. I am trying toi *invade* your spirit! I am wanting to come in and be at peace with you. I am your Saviour, your Lord, your Friend.

Come, sit awhile with your Friend. Learn of Me and we will find peace together."

"Real Shepherds" Part 1

"Many will stumble.
Many will fall.
You will stumble and you will fall.
Do you stay down or do you get back up?
Do you rest and recover or do you 'jump the gun' before you are ready? All must be done in My timing. I have seasons for everything. Not all is as you expect or predict. My ways; My times - are not (as) your ways or your times. Let Me be God.

*** If you follow Me, you will be shown the way. If you resist My leadings, then you will go astray- you will go off the path. When you refuse to obey Me (and My laws)...(then) you are 'out on your own'. Yes, I am watching you, but I wait for you to acknowledge Me and My place in your life.

*** Many 'sheep' have gotten lost, hurt, even killed; when they 'went their own way'.
-pause-
Sheep! I call My sheep! Listen! Listen for Me! Become quiet, and in silence, you will hear Me. I will call you. I am your Shepherd, You know My voice. I care for My sheep. I will lead you to where I am - to My pastures. I love My sheep and (have) laid down My life for them (My sheep).

*** (The) sheep follow their shepherd.
He leads them into a safe place.
He guards them by night and feeds them by day.
He is at watch in the night and on alert for any danger.
He 'runs off' the wolves - the enemies and predators.
The Good Shepherd can recognize His sheep and a false sheep He will expose and eject from His fold. (For many wolves wear sheep's clothing and try to 'get in' to the fold to destroy.)
-pause-
Yes, I lead My flocks to higher ground - to walled fortresses - to strong towers. I defend them and I care for them. They are Mine."

"Real Shepherds" Part 2

(re His sheep)
" I nurse them back to health when they are sick.
I stay near the ones who are suffering and are weak.
I feed the starving sheep.
I direct the steps of My flock.
I show them the safe routes and the places of hiding.

*** If needed, I hide them...until the danger has passed. They are under My protection.

*** Yes, the sheep (may) cost Me My life...but I willingly lay down My body for the flock. This is the life of a true shepherd.

*** A hireling will run in the sight of danger. He will leave the sheep defenseless...without a leader...sheep with no shepherd. This is not good.

*** Once left vulnerable, the sheep become easy prey for (the) ravening wolves and beasts. The ones first attacked are the weak ones... (and) the older ones...the sickly ones...the young, fragile ones. With no strong shepherd to cover them, they are 'open targets'. So it is with My human church!

*** The shepherds leave their flocks defenseless, open to attack, trembling with anxiety...alone.

*** Neglected, abandoned flocks are all over. Shepherds are (mere) 'figure heads'. Many have the title (of shepherd) but lack the heart. To be a true shepherd, a man needs My heart...My love...My mercy...My strength...My wisdom...My discerning eye...My power...My compassion. The false shepherds (pastors/prophets/teachers) will leave the flocks. They are only there for a paycheck; for the money...and the 'prestige'. Most false shepherds are controlling, liars, sinful; full of lusts - greedy lusts; empty words, flashy (and/or condemning) personas (appearances).

*** Their idea of 'church' is a show. They put on a show every week and collect 'ticket' money. The false shepherds fear the enemy. They have no power over the enemy. They cower in fear when real danger approaches. These frauds will be exposed for what they are.
-pause-
The negligent, evil, false shepherds will receive (the) greater condemnation. They are liars, frauds, angels of darkness disquised as ministers...they are most evil.

*** They will receive according to their evil deeds. Unless repentance is evidenced, there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth for the false shepherds among you.

Repent. "
