Benny Hester - When God Ran

MESSAGE "Hopeless?"

  {From a series of short messages, called "8 days of Hope"}


Day 1
Isaiah 40:29  "He gives power to the faint;  and to them that have no might, He increases strength."

                                         ~~~~~~~

"Yes, I  give power to the weak, and I give My strength to those with no might of their own. 
I am strong when you are weak.
I give hope to the hopeless.
I give strength to the weak and down-trodden.
I give joy where there is no joy.
I give peace where there is no peace.


When all natural means have been exhausted,
I offer supernatural power. 
I give you My love when you feel no love.
I give forgiveness when no one else will. 
I give you a new beginning every morning. 
I give you ideas when you are at a dead end.


I give life where there is only death and despair.
I give light where there is only darkness. 
I give you a future and a hope. 
I give your life meaning and value, when all seems lost. 
I give you breath to breathe.


I give you My supernatural (above the natural) power to go on, even in the most trying of times ... and the most tiring of circumstances. 
I am your strength.
I am your power. 
I am strong when you are weak.


Rest in this hope."

Aaron Shust - To God Alone

MESSAGE: "Magnificent"


>Begin to *ponder*, get quiet and listen...immediately I *hear* in (my) mind: 


"Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."  (Psalm 119:105)

then I hear the following:


*******



"Glory to God in the highest ... Praise His Name forever more...


Glory!  Glory! Glory!


Alleluia ... He reigns on high ... He is Most High ... He is King over all ... He deserves our praise.
He is magnificent:  beyond words.


His grandeur is most illustrious ... most Holy... most beautiful ... glorious ... and resplendent.
{illustrious = highly renowned, famous, glorious, luminous, bright}




-pause-



Come near, come near. 
My child, draw near.
Enter into My courts ... drink from the Holy fountain ... in the wellspring of Life eternal!


Enter into My joy ... into My land ... My kingdom ... My domain of exquisite pleasures beyond compare:  Holy treasures and Holy pleasures ...

to you ... from your Heavenly Father.


*****


(He) delights in pleasing His children.
He wants them to realize His extravagant love for them ... He desires (that) they see His encompassing wisdom over their lives.


(The) Father is joyful when His children seek Him and forsake all others.
He covets their worship.
{covet = desires earnestly}



-pause-



(The) Father does not desire any to perish .... He wants them to know of His deep, rich, covering of love and concern.
He says to tell them of His endless mercy.... and rich, expansive compassion.


His heart is full of love:  the unique and lasting love of the Father, as demonstrated by the Son.


As you have seen (the) Love in the Holy Son, so also is that Love in the Holy Father (and) The Love is demonstrated to us by the Holy Spirit.



*******


God is love.


Plain and simple.
The devil is evil:  that is part of his name.


God is good:  good is part of HIS name.
God is good and God is love.


Many of His children do not truly know His love and kind affection.
Many do not completely trust Him.
Most have been taught false beliefs.


The truth is good.
The Father is a good Dad.
He is much more concerned than earthly fathers.
His love is amazing.



1:27am



His love cannot be measured.
The Love of the Father, the Son and the Spirit are outstanding:  beyond *human comprehension*!
{He's *out of this world*!...referring to the Father}



He also is jealous.
He is jealous when His creation seeks other gods, other loves, false idols.
He wants a pure, complete devotion.
{pure as in totally devoted to Him}



He sees how others treat you.
He wants the best for you!


One love.
One God.
One Father.
One Son.
One Spirit.
So is the Trinity.
{Three-in-One}


-pause-



Realize who you are.
You are divinely CONNECTED to the Maker of the universe!
You are in a real, living relationship with the Creator of the world, the skies, of Heaven!



He loves you
 ... He really loves you!"

MESSAGE "Through The Fire" ( For The Few Who Don't 'Fit In' )


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

"Think it not strange concerning the fiery trial you are enduring.


It is a thing of My doing ... it is My way for you at this moment, this time.
It will pass, do not fret.


-pause-


Since time began, I have tested My servants.
 I have stretched their faith ... their strength ... their physical limits ... their loyalty ... their love.


I need to see who will listen to Me ... who will go the extra mile ... who will seek Me when it is rough ... who is *for* Me, despite extreme adversity.


I need to know.


I need to know who is * on the Lord's side* ... who is on *My team*.


5:03am
-pause-


So, again, consider it not strange when you go through these *strange* times... these times of unrest ... of turmoil ... of affliction ... of barrenness (in the spirit) ... these seemingly *horrible* times. They are for your good.



Yes, you see ... all ... ALL things will indeed work (out) FOR your good.
In the end, you will know and you will see.
ALL will know. 
ALL will see.


You will be rewarded in My day of reward.
I am thrilled and delighted to see My children beside Me, even now ... even with enduring such pain and isolation.


Many are called ... but few are chosen. 
Do you feel *chosen*? 
If you are close to Me, you will not feel chosen ... you will feel forsaken.
It is a dichotomy ... an opposite in the spirit. 
When you are clinging to Me (your Savior) ... you will (often, usually) then feel rejection.
Rejection by the world ... rejection from family ... from friends ... from church ...from society in general.


My *called out* ones will not be able to *fit* nicely into the fabric of the world.
They will NOT fit in.
Please try to understand this.


If you have given up the world, the ways of the world (including religion) ... then you are on a narrow course ... a *strange* path ... an untraveled road ... a very, very lonely path.


*****


Few are able. 
Few are able to comprehend this way, this path, this life, this solitude, this mourning, this intensity, this rejected lifestyle.  
It is not for all.


Few can last. 
Few will survive (this lifestyle).
It is not for the general population.
It is a specialized, traumatic, pain-filled, often-treacherous way of devotion.


Some will try to live this way... this quiet life ... this life of the Spirit. 
It is NOT for the weak-of-heart ... unless they are going to give it all over to Me, the One who can bring justice and comfort.


I am the Comforter. 
I am the SPIRIT inside you ... the One who gives you unparalleled peace amidst the turmoils.


Yes, yes ... you will endure great pain, intense hardship, unequaled loneliness ... BUT, I will reward! 
I will repay! 
I will avenge!
I will be close!
I will comfort, as NO OTHER.


*****


You know this. 
You know Me.
(If you are among My chosen, afflicted, storm-tossed ones ... you know. 
You know deep in your soul, that you are Mine.)



5:17am
-pause-


The greater the evil, the greater the light.
The more you suffer, the more you will be comforted.
One day you will see clearly ... (and) you will realize My intense love for you.


I have never *given up* on you, My daughter (My son) ... My precious one.
I am with you ALWAYS , even unto the end. 
I will indeed (truly, really) carry you, even unto your old age.
I will not abandon ... (even) if I do *hide* Myself at times.


Yes, I do put you through times of testings: of My *hiding*.
I appear to be gone ... to be absent .. to be *in hiding*. 
I may hide My face from you, for a season ... yet, I am with you.
It is a testing, a trial.


-pause-


When chaos comes, run to Me.
Call to Me. 
Cry to Me.
I will hear.
I will be near. 
I will be close by. 
I will be with you ... you will sense My nearness.


-pause-
5:22am


Leaders are often alone ... are often lonely. 
Few (will) understand. 
Few will feel the leader's pain. 
It is a difficult road to walk.
Leaders are often pioneers, breaking new ground, doing new things, saying (the) hard things.


A leader will have to say hard sayings ... hard-to-understand words ... (give) difficult messages.
It is the burden of the leader.


If you are an innovator ... a leader ... a pioneer ... a *trail blazer*, then you will NOT be understood. 
You will be ostracized (isolated/rejected/shunned)... (and) you will be mocked, ridiculed, harshly criticized ... (and) you will be lonely.
You will be alone for much of your journey ... for most of your life.


Even when (you) are with other people, you will (often/usually) feel alone.


-pause-


Despite all the *negatives* of being a leader ... there are definite *positives*. 
It will be worth it all!
You will enjoy great satisfaction one day!


You will feel My presence as few can ... you will know Me as few will (to) ... you will have knowledge of the HOLY that few possess .... you will be closer to Me than you have ever been before ... yes, it will all be worth it. 
You will see.


-pause-
5:30am


So... fear not, fear not.
Don't worry; don't be anxious.
Listen to Me .... I am near now.
I am your confidante ...yes, I am here. Love Me."

From supernatural words (*spiritually dictated*) on ~~~3/2/2013 @5am


{A special message for a few ...those who strive - against all odds- to follow Him (Jesus/Holy Spirit) ... and have lost all ... the ones who are misunderstood.}





I Peter 4:12 "Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:..."



Job 23:10 "But He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I will come forth
as gold.... When He has tried me, I shall come forth like gold.... "


Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called ... according to His purpose."


Isaiah 53:3 "He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid -as it were- our faces from Him; He was despised, and we esteemed Him not."


II Timothy 3:12 "Yes, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution."
(Writer's note: persecution can come in many different forms: physical, illness, discouragement, rejection, despair, isolation, rejection, demonic, spiritual attack, mental torment, afflictions, etc.)


Psalm 34:19 "Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all."


II Corinthians 12:7 "And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure."
(This indicates demonic attack, --allowed by God -- for the purpose of humility.... to maintain a humbleness, despite great supernatural revelations /experiences.)

MESSAGE "Not Of This World"




"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 command 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!"







------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Definitions:

celestial = pertaining to the spiritual or (the) invisible Heaven; heavenly; divine

 *Scriptures:

John 17:14   "I have given them Thy Word; and the world hates them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world."

John 18:36a   "...My kingdom is not of this world."

Romans 12:2a   "And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind..."

John 3:31   "He that comes from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaks of the earth: He that comes from Heaven is above all."

I John 2:15    "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world (world system), the love of the Father is not in him."

I Peter 2:9   "But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a Holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of Him who has called you out of the darkness into His marvellous light..."

Broken Heart

Falling Up - Silent Night (2013)

Roy Fields Rides His Harley

The Band Perry - If I Die Young




If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in a river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Uh oh, uh oh

Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
She'll know I'm safe with you when she stands under my colors, oh,
And life ain't always what you think it ought to be, no
Ain't even grey, but she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life, oh well
I've had just enough time

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

The sharp knife of a short life, oh well
I've had just enough time

And I'll be wearing white, when I come into your kingdom
I'm as green as the ring on my little cold finger,
I've never known the lovin' of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holdin' my hand,
There's a boy here in town, says he'll love me forever,
Who would have thought forever could be severed by...

...the sharp knife of a short life, oh well?
I've had just enough time

So put on your best, boys, and I'll wear my pearls
What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts, oh, no, I'll sell 'em for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singin'
Funny when you're dead how people start listenin'

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Uh oh (uh, oh)
The ballad of a dove (uh, oh)
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep 'em in your pocket
Save 'em for a time when you're really gonna need 'em, oh

The sharp knife of a short life, oh well
I've had just enough time

So put on your best, boys, and I'll wear my pearls.

Breath Of Heaven (Mary's Song)



I have traveled many moonless nights
Cold and weary with a babe inside
And I wonder what I've done
Holy Father you have come
And chosen me now
To carry your son

I am waiting in a silent prayer
I am frightened by the load I bear
In a world as cold as stone
Must I walk this path alone
Be with me now
Be with me now

[Chorus:]
Breath of heaven
Hold me together
Be forever near me
Breath of heaven
Breath of heaven
Lighten my darkness
Pour over me your holiness
For you are holy
Breath of heaven

Do you wonder as you watch my face
If a wiser one should have had my place
But I offer all I am
For the mercy of your plan
Help me be strong
Help me be
Help me

Amy Grant - What About the Love



I went to see my neighbor
He'd been taken to a home
For the weak and the discarded
Who have no place to go
He said "Here I lack for nothing
I am fed and I am clothed,
But at times I miss the freedom
I used to know"
I said "Is this all there is
When your usefulness is gone?"
Something's wrong

CIA Investigation Concludes Hackers Worked To Get Trump Elected

Amy Grant, What About The Love



I went to see my sister
She was staying with a friend
Who had turned into a preacher
To save the world from sin
He said "First deny your body,
Then learn to submit
Pray to be made worthy,
And tithe your ten percent"
I said "Is this all there is,
Just the letter of the law?"
Something's wrong.

I went to see my brother
On the 32nd floor
Of a building down on Wall Street
You could hear the futures roar
He said "Here we make decisions,
And we trade commodities;
If you tell me where there's famine,
I can make you guarantees"
I said "Is this all there is,
Power to be strong?"
Something's wrong.

[Chorus:]
Something's wrong in heaven tonight
You can almost hear them cry
Angels to the left and the right
Saying "What about the love
What about the love
What about the love?"

I went to see my neighbor
He'd been taken to a home
For the weak and the discarded
Who have no place to go
He said "Here I lack for nothing
I am fed and I am clothed,
But at times I miss the freedom
I used to know"
I said "Is this all there is
When your usefulness is gone?"
Something's wrong.



I looked into the mirror
Proud as I could be
And I saw my pointing finger
Pointing back at me
Saying "Who named you accuser
Who gave you the scales"
I hung my head in sorrow
I could almost feel the nails
I said "This is how it is
To be crucified and judged
Without love."

?????????????????????????????why...........

"Trump has been accused of sexually assaulting twelve women and a thirteen-year-old girl. The allegations range from groping and kissing women on the lips without their consent to ripping out chunks of his ex-wife Ivana’s hair while raping her. Although Trump has denied the accusations, his own words provide critical context for his denials. At a campaign rally in October, Trump invoked a classic rape culture trope by suggesting that one accuser was not attractive enough to assault. “Believe me,” he said, “she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you. Man, you don’t know. That would not be my first choice.

On January 20, 2017, a man who has violated and humiliated so many women will be exalted to the highest elected office in our government. In the meantime, all Americans must grapple with what that says about our culture and what it teaches our young people. The threat of Trump’s presidency is not only normalization, but glorification of misogyny and sexual violence—just as Trump has normalized and glorified bigotry and vitriol against immigrants, Muslims, Mexican-Americans, people with disabilities, and people of color.”
