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."

{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!"
