*** So, to those with an ear ... hear what the Spirit is saying. Awake...to those who 'slumber'. Awake to life!
*** Cast off the works of darkness: (the) works of religiosity and of man. Look for Me. Look for your Saviour. Look for your Comforter.
*** Where do you begin to look? Look in My Word. Look to Me...look to Me in your heart... in your cries to Me. Look for the unexpected. Look for freedom. Look for yokes of sin, disease and demonic being broken off people's lives. Where My Spirit is, there is liberty!
***** Beware of counterfeits, (but) ask for My discernment. Seek My wisdom. This is not for all. Few will have patience or endurance to continue in my Word. They will join the masses and go on with their religious charade. This is sad.
*** But...to those who press on and are true seekers of My Truth...they will be rewarded. I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek Me.
***** I am burning out the dross. Yes, although you have been in the furnace of affliction, yet you shall come forth as gold. My glory shall be seen upon you, My children...My brave children. Remember I care for you.
*** You (and others all over the earth) have suffered the loss of all things. --pause-- But in your loss, you have gained all...for you gained Me, your Lord.
For what shall it profit man if he gains the whole world and yet loses his soul?
*** The things of this earth are passing away. There will be new heavens and (a) new earth. The old is becoming new.
*** It is wise to think of the future...of eternity. It is wisdom to apply your heart to seek things above, and not below. It is My wisdom for you to set your affections on things unseen...for the invisible things are eternal.
*** You are not of this world. You are an 'alien' passing through. This world is not your home. You are looking toward a Heavenly city... to Paradise in the Heavenly sphere.
*** Yes, the earth and it's ways are temporal, but My kingdom is an everlasting kingdom.
Forever My Word is settled in Heaven. My plans are established. My purposes will be accomplished. "
