"Power from On High"


~~~3:47am 

"Power from on high.  Power from above...from Heaven. You need this power. You need Me. You are lost without it...without Me.  I am your life-giver, your source of knowledge...your wisdom. Without Me you can do nothing. I am the 'air you breathe'.  I am the Vine...you (are) the branches. We must be connected. You must be a channel for My power to flow (through). A divine connection...we are.

-pause-

Lend Me your ear, oh foolish ones. Listen and be wise. Offer (up) your heart(s) to Me...give Me (your) attention. Freely I will give (of) Myself...of My wealth...of My power. I will grant you 'wishes'...your heart's desires...when you are in My will. We must be in agreement. Let My Spirit give you life...vitality...breath...the very breath of Life!

Shamans know of a power...but it is not Mine. There are endless power sources in this world, yet none compare to Me. I am the Most High.My power works by love. It is above all. Others may derive energy, might, magical feats, illusion, 'miracles', dramatic signs and showings...yet My force is one of Love.

Faith works by love...by My love. It is supernatually known...it cannot be book-learned. It is not a matter of the mind, but of the spirit. The 'letter kills, but the Spirit brings (gives) life'. The law is dead, but My Spirit is alive! It is the Spirit that 'quickens'...gives life...makes My Son alive (real) to you!

My Holy Spirit is necessary. He is not an 'add-on'...an 'extra'. NO! He is vital...He is important...He is part of Me...He is *Me*. We are One...He speaks of My Son...of Me..of Myself. Spirit testifies of Father and Son.  Spirit glorifies the Son.

***

The Spirit warns....tells of things to come...witnesses of Me. He is the Spirit of truth...of comfort...of mercy. He leads (you)...if you be so willing! He speaks...you can hear Him...IF you are of Him...of His. You must be filled with My Holy Spirit....for this life is not (a) carnal one.


It is a new life...a life brand new...a life from above. It is a 'great adventure' to be sure! If you be willing and obedient, you will 'eat the fat of the land'. What does this mean? you wonder. It implies (that) any who are filled of My Spirit...who will listen and hear..who will (then) obey...and act, as commanded, will (then) be rewarded. They will enjoy the fruits of their labors...the victory of their battles.

 There is victory. There IS a final result...an end result. Your fighting is not in vain! Your battles are not worthless...they are of purpose (of use) to Me. Your afflictions have not been in vain...every sorrow has been, and is, (of) value to Me. I work (out) all things for good, for those who are (the) called, according to My purposes.

 I offer great hope...great hope, in the heat of the battle. Go on with Me...go on...continue...press on...you will be joyful one day...whether (it) be here or in eternity. (Some will receive rewards in the eternal 'timetable'.)
 {*Nore: there is no 'time' like earthly time in eternity, so this implies a general place/time after we leave this earth.}

-pause-

'Cast all your cares upon me, for I care for you'...I will show you the 'way of escape'...I offer ways to face temptation(s)...and to be free from sin's bondage(s).

I KNOW HOW TO 'DELIVER THE GODLY OUT OF TEMPTATION'. MY WAYS ARE NOT YOUR WAYS, BUT I CAN (AND DO) WORK WITHIN THOSE HUMAN METHODS. I AM 'BEHIND-THE-SCENES' MANY TIMES...UNBEKNOWNST TO MOST.

 MY SPIRIT IS LIKE THE WIND...MOVING THROUGH THE EARTH....WHOOSHING PAST THE CROWDS OF PEOPLE...FLUTTERING BREEZES NEAR AN INDIVIDUAL...(OR) SWEEPING VIOLENTLY THROUGH AN AREA FOR MY PURPOSES.

I AM IN SOME WINDS...SOME STORMS.....SOME RAINS...SOME THUNDERINGS. I AM NOT IN ALL. TO DISCERN THESE TIMES/THINGS/EVENTS...ONE MUST HAVE (A) SEASONED, SHARP ACUITY...AND A LISTENING EAR. THE DEEPEST WISDOM DOES NOT COME EASILY...IT IS BORN OUT OF THE CRUCIBLE...THE TESTING...THE HARDSHIPS...THE OBEDIENCE.

I WILL NOT GIVE OUT MY POWER TO THE DISOBEDIENT,OR THE FOOLISH. I AM NOT TO BE MOCKED OR TRIFLED WITH. THE POWER MUST BE ENTRUSTED TO MY CONFIDANTES...THOSE PROVEN.

SOME MAY FAIL MY TRIALS...SOME MAY TAKE MANY 'TESTS'. I AM THE ONE WHO WILL ALLOT THE GIFTINGS, THE AUTHORITY, THE GRACES, THE FAVOR, THE 'MANTLES', THE GRACES, THE WORKINGS.

MY SCHEME (?) IS ONE OF (A) MASTERFUL DESIGN. IT IS NOT FOR THE WEAK-OF-HEART.  {*Note: This means that those who are timid -or lack self-esteem, confidence and ego- may be the strongest when God empowers them. They must be courageous, despite other failings.}

THOSE WHO ARE WEAK IN THE FLESH ARE OFTEN THE STRONGEST IN OTHER AREAS. THEY ARE THE ONES WHO 'CONFOUND THE WISE'...THE ONES WHO ARE 'DESPISED, OUTCASTS, WORTHLESS' IN SOCIETY...(YET) THEY ARE STRONG IN MY WORLD....IN MY 'CIRCLES'. (HA!)


-PAUSE-

SO, 'FRET NOT' BECAUSE OF 'EVIL-DOERS'...OF THOSE WHO 'PERVERT THE WAY' AND WHO 'DISTORT THE GOSPEL' FOR THEIR OWN ADVANCEMENT. THEY WILL PAY! THEY WILL BE PUNISHED, IF NOT HERE...THEN, IN THE JUDGEMENT! THEY WILL NOT GO UNNOTICED...THEIR WORKS SHALL FOLLOW THEM.

THEY WILL RECEIVE THE GREATER PUNISHMENT (DAMNATION)...FOR THEY KNEW THE TRUTH AND YET DECIDED TO GO THEIR OWN WAY. YES, IT IS A FEARFUL THING TO FALL INTO MY HANDS...INTO THE HANDS OF THE LIVING GOD. 

-PAUSE-

So many are weary. So many are falling...are asleep...are sick and afflicted. They are weak in flesh, in body, in mind...yet, I can (still) use them! I give grace to the lowly...the down-troddened...the misfits...the poor...the poor ones in society. I give My grace, IF it is wanted. I do not provide gifts if one is not seeking...not desiring. I offer Myself...My love...My Presence...to those (who) are willing...to those who are seeking...asking....knocking. To those who are crying out for Me...I hear! I will comfort you in due time. Give it all to Me...give Me your care, for I DO care for you.

The body, the flesh is tired...but the spirit is willing. Though your outward man (body/flesh) is perishing (growing older/decaying)...yet, the inner man is expanding...is becoming stronger. Let the spirit rule over (the) flesh. Refuse to give up...ignore death. Ignore the threats of the evil (ones). Do not listen to discouragement. Stand strong...be firm...refuse to waver in your devotion to Me.

I am your Love...I love you...I work by love. My power is useless without My approval....without My dispensation. All the false miracles in the world are (as) NOTHING when compared to an iota of My love. My Love is strong...it is what holds the earth together. Let My love empower you today."
