"People Are Fickle"

"People are fickle...they like you one minute, and hate you the next.

People can be undependable,...they make promises, and rarely (can) keep them. Promises are cheap. People lie. Most promises are eventually broken. It is better NOT to promise and make a vow, then to say you will do something and then default.


Don't be rash with your words.

Most people are *people-pleasers*...they cannot say no, and thereby make false promises they never intend to keep.
This is dangerous, and wrong. It is a sin. It is making and telling a lie.

*****

Broken promises make broken lives...
broken hearts...
broken dreams...
broken minds...
broken hopes.

Lying brings destruction and heartache...and breeds in(as) anger and resentment.

(And listen:) it is MOST dangerous to make vows and promises to God your Father. The Lord is displeased with lying promises. He is not mocked: you will (eventually) reap what you have sown.

Do not promise what you cannot- or will not - do! It is much better NOT to make promises, then to break them!

God KEEPS His promises.

*******

In contrast, the Lord God always keeps His promises. His Word is His promise. If He has said it, He will (eventually) do it. He is a man of His Word!

He is faithful. He does not lie. Men and women lie, but our God our Father does not!

*******

Who is the *father of lies*?
The enemy, of course. He loves lies and relishes in lying.
He is the ultimate liar, and has been from the beginning.

His lies got him kicked out of Heaven. (and his pride and rebellion.)

Yes, lying goes along with pride and rebellion: all attributes of the evil one.

Compare this mess to the great truth of the Lord!

The Spirit of God is the Spirit of Truth. Jesus is the way, the TRUTH, and the life...in Him is no lie, no darkness, no evil.

-pause-


If you are caught in the grip of lies; of lying...I admonish you to repent.

Resist the enemy, the devil, the liar...and he will flee.
Submit to God, and be humbled under His mighty hand of truth.

The truth, you know, WILL (eventually) set you (totally) free!

And whom the Son (Jesus) has set free, is free indeed:

free from the devil and sin!

*******

So, many decisions will come your way.

You can decide to follow Jesus and His truth, or you can follow Satan and his lies.

But, beware, (for) sometimes the truth is polluted. Sometimes the enemy
uses partial truths in order to trap the sheep. (believers)

He is a master of lies,
of trickery,
of deceit,
of (the) false-SEEMING-true.

He is a *bluffer*. He is a manipulator and a deceiver.

*******

I, the Lord, will lead you into all truth....as you continue to follow Me.
Remember,
forcefully resist
the lies,
the condemnation,
the slander,
the attacks:
for I WILL have a free people!

I am fighting for you, My children, My precious lambs! I am interceding for each and every one of you!
I care deeeply for EACH of you.

Believe Me and My Word: for I do not lie! You can count on Me and My promises.
Stick with Me and I'll stick with you!

I love you, kids!"

"Alien On Earth"

"You are not of this world." - St. John 15:19a

*******

"You are not of this world. You are an *alien*, so to speak. You are a stranger, a foreigner, to this world.

Be IN this world, but be not OF it.
You are not your own, you were bought with a Price.
My Son paid the Price for you. He has paid the ultimate Ransom.

He has made the everlasting Exchange...His life for yours.

He died that you may live.
You have accepted this fact. You have asked, invited, prayed for Messiah - My Son - to inhabit your heart, your spirit.

He has accepted your invitation.
He has come to dwell within you. You are part of His celestial body.

Again...you are not of this world.

You are a pilgrim travelling through a foreign, strange land.

You are just passing through.

This is not your home.

Heaven is your home.

-pause-

*******

Enter My presence with joy...with thanksgiving.
This is not (merely) a trite saying: it is survival for you.

You MUST praise Me for your own good!
It is not an option: it is mandatory.


Am I a hard taskmaster?
The reason for My commands is for YOUR benefit, not to punish you!
It is for your well-being...(for) your connection with Me.

Praise is a divine connection.
It is *plugging into* My atmosphere!


You need My power.

I tell you the way.

Now, plug in!"

From September 1989

Listen My children
And you will hear
The mighty sound
Of a rushing wind

It is the sound of
My voice
Telling you I Am
Coming soon

Tell them
Tell them
Tell them
About Me

How I love them
How I long to
Carry them
Carry their burdens
Wipe away their tears

How I love them
I died for them
Can't you see
I am waiting

Let them know
Of My love

But
My
Judgement
Is soon approaching

The things
You see
Will pass
Away

But I Am
Here
Forever more

I stand
Ready and
Desiring
To
Forgive and
Pardon
And to love
Them

>>> A PERSONAL RANT

Damn you insomnia

You visit me again

As I lay sprawled in the bed

Where is my sleep

Oh, dreaded sprite

Frustrated and worn

My jaw clenched tight

The hours tick by

As, ah- here comes the light

I hate you so much

You foul visitor from hell

I toss once again

And wait for my bell

"I Dare You"

"I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. The fear of man is a snare. I will help you...do not fear what man will do to you.


I am with you...each of you...to the end. I will hold your right hand, saying, 'Fear not, for I am with you to prosper you, to comfort you, to strengthen you...for My glory...for My purposes!'


My love casts out all fear. If you love Me, you will trust Me and cleave
unto Me: you will DARE to believe Me in all situations. I will lead you into all truth by My Spirit. Remember, it is by My Spirit that you know Me...that My Word is made real to you.


Do not be afraid of man, for what is man? The world will not be able to hurt you, as long as you are in My care. Be strong and of a good courage...for I will be with you...wherever you go.


Keep your mind, your eyes, your thoughts on Me....and I will keep you in perfect peace. I have NOT forgotten you: I have graven you on the palms of My hands."

"Put Away Childish Things"

(Heard several times; "Put away childish things...")

*******

"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 continully 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. 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 (who) will love Me in the future.

Yes, you have heard it said often that I will do marvellous 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!"

'I Will Defend You"

"I will defend you.
I am your Defense.
I am your Advocate.

I will cover you in the power of My Blood, which is (also) the power of My mighty resurrection.]

-pause-

Do not be anxious about what you are to say...for I will give you the words by My Holy Spirit.
HE will speak THROUGH you at the necessary and appropriate times.

Do not fret.
Do not worry.
Do not be anxious.
With every affliction, every sorrow, every test and every trial...there is opportunity to draw close to Me. I will give you (and all My children, My precious sheep) the correct measure of faith (as) needed.

So, come to Me, all of you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

-pause---selah-

Come to Me, just as you are.
I see you AS you are.
I see.
I see.
I know.

-pause-

Let Me help you carry your burdens. Unload them onto My back. My back was FURROWED for you...and for your heavy burdens.
Cast all your care upon Me, for, indeed, I DO care for you.

Seek Me in those secret places (that) you dwell in: the places dear to you.

-pause-

When you seek Me with all your heart, you will find Me.
Set your faces(s) like flint: go forth and stay the course.
I am not willing that ANY should perish, and that includes you, My children.

*******

Oh, My backsliding children:
listen,
listen,
listen.

Yes, I am *married* to the backslider, My Word says. That implies relationship, covenant, promise, trust, committment, love and concern.

I am eternally concerned for you, My flock. (My wayward flock.)

I am going out into the pastures looking for you.
I AM CALLING YOUR NAMES...
seeing where you are.
Some (of you) hear Me...and some hear Me and ignore Me,
over
and over
and over again.

A warning: I will not always be heard.
One day My sheep will be with Me in eternity. (The *eternal sheepfold*, if you will.)

So, IF you can hear me calling to you through the pages of this letter
- this message -
I (do) admonish you to heed
(hear and listen to)
My voice.
I am calling out of My deep, profound love and concern for you.

Yes, I WILL defend you, but only with a repentant heart and a broken, contrite spirit."
