An Exhortation From The Lord: The Righteous Acts Of The Saints
 
“One thing is needed and I desire for you to choose what is better. Sit at My feet and learn. The enemy has come and stolen something very precious to Me and to you. Satan had stolen the betrothal gown of My beloved. He has come along and used his gift of soothsaying and lies to strip you of your true covering – which is to be in right standing with Me. He has tricked many into trading true righteous acts for unfruitful and self-motivated works. I have gone into the enemy's camp and demanded back that which was taken. It has been returned to Me and I give it to you.”
 
Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear." (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.) Revelation 19:7-8
 
“The righteous acts of the saints are those things that I have asked each individual to do, as well as what I have asked My Church to do corporately. Many feel they have to be on some important mission field before they will believe that they are doing righteous acts, but I tell you this is not so. A righteous act is something I have asked you to do, and it is something that may be insignificant in your eyes and the eyes of others, but to Me it is a thing of beauty. If I have told you to pick up a piece of trash on your way into a store, it is more significant to Me that you obey My voice in that small gesture than if you go on a mission trip to build an orphanage if I have not asked you to do it. If I have called you to build an orphanage then build an orphanage, but if I have asked you to pick up trash then pick up trash. Taking care of your children and raising them in the admonition and love of God is something precious to Me. Obedience to Me carries the same reward in My kingdom whether large or small. Obedience is what creates righteous acts. These acts become the fabric, the thread, the lace, the buttons and the jewels of the bridal gown.
“The righteous acts of the saints are not about self-exaltation or about doing things that make you feel better about yourself. Righteousness is your mind, will and emotions lining up with Mine. A righteous act is an act that has been initiated by Me and carried out by you. It is not even carried out in your own strength, but by My grace that is upon you. It is possible to turn a righteous act into an unrighteous act when one seeks to receive glory for doing it. It takes My grace to pick up trash that you did not throw down, it takes My grace to cheerfully change a dirty diaper, and it takes My grace to build an orphanage. So give Me the glory for the grace I have given you, and I will give you more.
“Right now much of my church is running around naked though they think they are clothed. They are poor and blind and pitiable. You need the anointing oil for your eyes so that you can see your true state.”
 
Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing' and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked. I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. Revelation 3:17-19
 
“Will you take serious My call for My people called by My name to pray and seek My face? Will you humble yourselves and turn from your wicked ways in order for your land to be healed? Beloved, I Am not asking the lost sinner to repent, I Am asking My church to repent! For too long My church has told homosexuals and the abortionists that they need to repent when it is My church that needs to repent. I Am there to bind up the wounds of the hurting and lost, but My church goes around Me and uses the very sword I placed in their hands (the Word of God) to cause harm. They further wound the very ones I seek to save by misusing My words as a weapon instead of a scalpel. They have not rightly divided the Word of Truth and have used My words to bring death instead of healing. The Word is a weapon for fighting against Satan and his cohorts, but My Church is using it to fight against flesh and blood. This must end! Where there is flesh and blood the Word must be used like a scalpel in the hands of a skilled surgeon who knows how to cut cancer out of a body.
 “Yes, many are in sin. Yes, they need to repent; but would it not be better for the lost sinners to see My Body working in unity and love? Have I not told you that people would know you belong to Me because of your love for one another? How much strife in the house will it take for you to grow weary of it? I did NOT command you: Do not grow weary in striving with one another! NO! My Church behaves as if I did! I commanded you not to grow weary in well doing. Well doing is the RIGHTEOUS ACTS which I seek the earth to find.
“What extremes must I take to win your heart back to your First Love? Why can you not listen and heed the warnings from My prophets. Both the old and the new prophets give warning with one voice, yet you continue to walk in your own will and way. I will not strive with flesh forever. Do you realize the position you have put Me in to bring you back into relationship with Me? A better question would be: Do you know what position you have placed yourself in by your willful disobedience? (I do not speak to those who have sought out My will and continue to seek My face each day, I speak to those who are walking in their own will.)
“I Am coming to restore My church to Myself, and I will not be stopped or slowed down. I have taken back the beautiful gown that was stolen by Satan so that the acts which you wear as your garment will not be found missing, stained or tattered. I Am not going to wed a naked bride! I will be wed to a bride clothed in the righteous acts of the saints.
“Remember this: A righteous act does not have to be grandiose, but it does have to originate from Me.Whether small or large, if it is a command from Me to you, then it is a righteous act. Listen for My voice. My sheep hear My voice and another they will not follow.”
 
Sincerely,
Your First Love
 
Scriptures To Consider:

Footnote: This word was originally sent out in 2008 after a very long encounter I had with the Lord. I was not released to share that encounter at the time but it will be in my book, “Jewels from the River” which is in process now. I pray you have been blessed, as I believe it is a very timely word for today!

A Directive To The Church From Abba Father For 2012-2015: Awaken for the Renewal
 
Part One

Introduction:

 
Earlier this month while sitting with the Lord, the Holy Spirit asked me to step outside as He had something to show me. The first thing I saw was a half moon high in the morning sky. The Lord said that when I saw it as a crescent moon He would be giving a three year directive for the Church. One afternoon about three weeks later, I was walking my dog and felt to look up. There it was – a crescent moon! When I arrived home, I sat with my journal in hand to seek the Holy Spirit’s counsel.
 
The Vision:
 
All at once a short but astonishing vision began unfolding. I could see a dark night sky filled with stars come into view. Suddenly flashes of lightning illuminate the darkness and I see smoke swirling around. At first it seems to be at a great distance, but as I watch it I perceive it is approaching earth. It is such an ominous sight that I find myself filled with reverential fear that strikes deep at my heart. Out of the smoke I see what looks to be a chariot like the one described in Scripture that took Elijah away – mysterious, fiery and fierce.
 
Then I hear the voice of psalmist Misty Edwards* softly singing,
“Awake, Awake O Sleeper. He’s coming.”
 
I ask the Lord to help me understand what I am seeing. He clearly declares, “This that is coming is not about the return of Christ, as some would suppose, but it is the coming of the Awakening of My Church. This is the awakening of My faithful ones to come out of hiding, for it was not Me who said to hide in caves and wait to be taken out. I will cause your heart to be strengthened as you do the will of your Father on earth as it is done in heaven.
 
“My word reveals in Revelation 6:15-16 that men of all social statuses will hide from Me and cry out to nature to come to their rescue – begging for the rocks to fall on them. Revelation 9:4 states that the ones who do not have My seal on their foreheads are the ones who will beg for death and not find it. This terror is not for My Church; you are to walk confident and victorious in Me.
 
Behold, I have spoken that I will send My prophet Elijah to restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers. This is the heart of the Father’s love!
 
“My return is not imminent, as Scripture is clear. Matthew chapter twenty-four tells what is to take place and in what order; however, My judgment on the land is – and My judgment is just. The outcome is not in the hands of the government as much as it is in the hands of the fathers. Have I spoken to fathers through the letters of Paul not to provoke your sons to anger? Have I warned if you exasperate your children they will lose heart? Have I not spoken to you to teach them in My ways – the ways of love and patience? I have repeatedly warned that anger comes from an unrighteous and hardened heart. Do not harden your heart as they did in the rebellion!Judgment is coming and not for the reasons many think. Abortion and homosexuality are on the top of the Church’s list, but they are not on the top of Mine.
 
“The top of My list is for the hearts of the fathers to return to the sons and the sons to return to the fathers. Out of those healed relationships these other issues troubling the Church will be naturally and organically dealt with and resolved. For the land to be healed, the root of the problem must be healed. I heal from the inside out, not the outside in. The Church through the centuries continually tries to clean the outside of the cup first so it looks good to others, yet the inside remains unclean. This is like a cancer hiding in the Body and I want it eradicated! Would you put makeup on a tumor and expect it to be healed? Of course not! I will not put cosmetics on this cancer to conceal it. This must be addressed for My Body to be healed and made whole.
 
“The only way to get to the inside of the problem is for the fathers to get honest and real with their children, particularly their sons, and the children to get honest and real with their fathers. I promise to be in the midst of your families as you obey – you only need call My name. Where two or three are gathered in My name, I Am in your midst to save, redeem, restore and renew.
 
“Do not be dismayed at the birth pangs the nations are going though at this time. Keep your eyes on Me and I will lead you in the way you should go. I will not drop you. Be attentive to this issue more than any other and see what I do.”
 
I sat pondering the vision and I realized I was still a little confused by what I saw. “Father,” I asked Him, “Jesus taught that John the Baptist was the Elijah to come – what am I seeing in this vision? It looks like another Elijah.”
 
“There are types and shadows, dear one. John was the Elijah to come to prepare the way for Christ to come into the hearts of the people who were moved to repentance by his message. There is much to occur before Christ returns for His Church; however, with that said it doesn’t mean it’s time to drop back and hide out until He does! That is not what He has told you to do and this is why the Church has gotten weak. You are overcomers if you heed His words and do them! This is the time to advance the kingdom of heaven like never before in history! This is the time to awaken the sleeping ones, the misled ones, the discontent and hidden ones. This is the time to see Me arise over you, to shine over you; it is time to make all things new!
 
“I have more for My Body now than at any other time in history. Yes – that includes the time when all the miracles were written in the Gospels and the book of Acts.
 
“You have heard that I am saving the best for last and I Am, however, My “last” and man’s “last” are not the same thing. For example in Revelation 1:1, 3 John believed the “time is near.” Peter wrote in his first letter to the Church that the “end of all this is near.” Were they wrong? No, because they wrote under My inspiration and I gave them My perspective. They heard correctly, yet these words were written over 2,000 years ago. My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are My ways your ways. A day to Me is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day. In Me all time exists and it is in harmony.
 
“You have asked and I have promised to talk to you about “the fullness of time” and the Day in which you presently live. As you have entered into 5773 on the Hebraic calendar, I have started a specific countdown as on a clock. It begins a three year extension of grace to prepare for a move of My Spirit that is unprecedented on the earth.
 
“The harvest is plentiful and the workers are to PREPARE, PREPARE, PREPARE for a great infilling of My Spirit around the world. It is time to prepare for a harvest like no other seen or heard of before. You must prepare and strengthen your faith muscles to carry the load. Fear has caused My Church’s faith and belief – Her trust in Me to shrink back, weaken and atrophy. Faith, like a muscle, must be exercised; to do that you have to get through to the other side of the pain. You must work at it! I will help, but you must believe My word over much of what you’ve been taught. Study to show yourself approved by putting into practice words you read (Logos) and words you hear (Rhema). This will build your confidence in Me so that even if I ask you to walk on water, you will do it without question.
 
“Awake, Awake O Sleeper! Arise, Shine for your light has come and My glory arises over you!
 
“Rid yourself of malice, anger, slander and abusive speech. Do not give the enemy an entry through your own mouth. If he gets a foothold, you have likely allowed your words to agree with his lies and deceit. Repent now! Do you see how far you have fallen? Return to your First Love!
 
“There is a renewal coming that will hit My church like dynamite. I do not mean a destructive force, but an explosive force (the dunamis power of My Holy Spirit). I Am about to explode on the scene through My chosen vessels. Creation is in travail to be renewed; but mostly it cries out for the sons of God to rise up and be made manifest. Social hierarchies, gender wars and the like will continue because Satan wants mankind to keep their focus on world issues. Is he greater than your God? While he is doing everything in his power to stop healing from coming to families, it won’t be stopped for those seeking My face in the midst of their crises. The world has attempted to fix social issues with government programs and politically correct speech that has everyone’s tongue tied. The fear that something said will offend someone has paralyzed speech and communication. It’s like a modern-day manmade Tower of Babel. Your nation elected a man of African descent and many thought this would heal racial tensions; in many ways it has only served to deepen the divide. I do not hold this against the man, as it was not, and is not his burden. He cannot heal this deep, gaping, bloody wound that has divided so many for so long.
 
“I Am Jehovah Rapha – God your Healer! Healing is in My name. I will heal this divide. As the fathers hearts return to their children and the childrens hearts return to the fathers, I will heal your land.”
 
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place.” (2 Chronicles 7:14-15 NKJV)
 
“My people (not the world, not the wicked sinner, not the abortionist, not the homosexual)
“My people humbling themselves
“My people turning from THEIR wicked ways
“Then – I will hear from heaven
“Then – I will forgive their sin
“THEN – I will heal their land
“My ears will be attentive to the prayers presented in the name of Jesus.”

Part Two: Preparing for the Awakening

  
In the first part of what I believe Abba Father gave me for 2012-2015, I heard the Holy Spirit say, “PREPARE, PREPARE, PREPARE”. I asked Him a simple question. “How do we prepare?” This is what I heard:
 
“First you need to see and understand what you are preparing for, then you will have the vision and the motivation for the work involved.
 
“Take for example a couple who have gotten the news that they are going to have a baby. They are excited and begin to prepare both together and separately. The woman prepares physically and is mindful of her nutrition and general health. It depends on the dynamics and personalities of each couple, but in general they begin to provide a place for that baby to live and grow. They not only prepare for the birth, but other financial needs are also considered for its education from early childhood into adulthood. If these things are not planned out, then a number of issues can arise that would limit the child’s health and its ability to function as an adult in society. As an adult, that upbringing would affect the person’s ability to provide for the next generation. Different cultures have different methods, but if their babies are not fed and properly cared for into adulthood, a cascade of troubling social issues will plague that territory. So it is for My Body.
 
“What is coming to the Church was shared years ago in a vision about a surfer catching a huge wave. When the first wave came the surfer’s board was too short, and he was not strong enough to ride the wave.* This is what happened in 2001 when the churches were filled after the attacks on the U.S. and its leaders and congregations were not ready – they were not prepared. Many in the Church did not intimately know My lovingkindness and mercy, so they were unable to share it with others in need. I Am slow to anger and long in suffering, yet My own flocks have failed to be taught this simple truth.
 
“Another wave is approaching My Body that the Church in no way is prepared to ride.
 
“The reason the Church is not prepared to ride at this time is that they still, in large part, have ‘pew’ mentality. Pews are long benches where people sit and are often seen in traditional churches. Although many have replaced the pew with chairs, the tradition of the ‘pew’ continues to live on in the hearts of the congregants. They habitually come to sit and do their time, and then go home and have lunch. They rarely remember the message or study to see if what they heard was scripturally sound. They only pray and study their Bible’s, and worship to the degree that they feel it will appease Me. That is the sum of their spiritual life. They honor Me with their lips but their hearts are far from Me. For this reason, many are not prepared. Like babies, they want to be bottle and spoon-fed. It is time to be weaned and eat the meat of My word.
 
“In many countries, fairly new converts are willing to go teach and share with others at the peril of life and limb. Even though they are new to the faith, they may know more about Jesus than anyone in a 100 mile radius; they trust Me to be with them as they go make new disciples! Yet those who had been in the church for years continued to sit in the pew. They think it is someone else being called to teach Sunday school or visit the sick. They think it is the pastor’s job to do what I have called them to do. They have failed to understand. They think they don’t qualify, yet they have been in Church their whole lives! They look for their pastor to do the work of the ministry, but I Am looking to them to exercise the gifts I gave them in every area of their lives.
 
There are many who have served Me without knowing what they should do. They believe when I show them what to do, and they do it. It is not complicated. It’s a matter of trust. I promote those who go where I send them and do what I say. Many of those will never be well-known, but they are famous in heaven and great is their reward. I often send the less qualified because they are willing, yet the ones I have worked with for years just sit in the pew – saved, but useless in My hand. It is My desire for My Church to come up off the pew, out of the chairs and be part of My plan.
 
Just then I saw people of all ages, races, denominations and levels of social status rising up and taking their position in the Body of Christ. As they came together, they formed a human body. I saw this “Body” walking all over the world. There were no parts of the body that were not in unity as they all were led by the Head – the mind of Christ. Then the Lord continued to speak:
 
“In Ephesians 4:11-12, I made it clear how the church needs to operate to function properly.Jesus Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. In Ephesians 2:19-22 I shared the plan for My Church, My temple. I made it clear that the Church needs to operate with the apostolic and prophetic leaders to set the foundation. Then the evangelists, pastors and teachers are to build on that foundation with Christ being the Cornerstone. Though many have seen Christ as the Cornerstone, they have failed to see the need for apostolic and prophetic counsel. Most have the pastor running the whole church and that was not My intentions for that office and why so many burned out early. Because the foundation is often overlooked as being true in times past, the churches crumble and then wonder what happened. My word is eternally true.
 
“Look at the hand and picture the ministry. On the hand the thumb represents the apostolic. The thumb sets mankind apart from all other animals just as the apostles set the Church apart from the world. The thumb interacts with all the other fingers to make them function at their fullest capability. The prophetic is like the index finger pointing direction for the Body. May the spirit of the prophets be subject to the prophets. If My prophets are saying different things, it could be they have different perspectives of My will. If what they say is like a clanging gong of judgment void of My love, compassion and mercy, it is likely not Me speaking to them. If their words, even if difficult to bear, are filled with hope, you will sense I Am in them.
 
“Remember Nehemiah was called by Me to rebuild the broken walls and gates of Jerusalem, but he still had to fight to perform My will. Do not think because I have spoken to you to accomplish a feat, it will be without a battle. The Bible gives many testimonies of this truth. Many in My Church have failed to prepare. Some believe they will be taken out before it gets bad. Others have failed because when things have gotten difficult they blame the devil and give up. Many blame Me for not defending them. I have given spiritual armament; however, My Body has wear and learn to use it!
 
“The prophetic promises I give will carry and strengthen you in difficult times IF you remember them and call them to mind. Proclaim My truth over what you see going on around you in the natural. There is still much to do! The just shall live by faith and without faith it is impossible to please God.
 
“Getting back to the hand, the middle finger is the longest and stretches out the furthest as is the calling of the evangelist. The evangelists are to go out and preach the Good News. But it can’t end there.
 
“The ring finger is reflective of the pastoral calling. Pastors are to have the heart of the Father for their flock – no matter how small or large their flock may be. The ring finger on the left hand and it is said that the blood vein from that finger runs directly to the heart. It has been commissioned to wear the wedding ring. This is also the weakest and most sensitive finger – test it for yourself and see. Press your thumb as hard as you can against each finger and you can feel its weakness. This is why the Church fails so many times. The flock looks solely at the pastor to care for their needs when the whole hand is needed.
 
“Finally we reach the little finger. This one represents the teacher and is by no means insignificant because it is small. If you have ever shut this finger in a door, cut or smashed it, you know how important it is! It balances out the work of the hand. Of course there would be no polite way to drink tea without it being properly extended!
 
“Now that you see the hand and see how its appendages work together, I ask, does the hand exist on its own?”
 
“No, it is attached to the Body.”
 
“And what does the hand do for the body?”
 
“It feeds it, grooms and cares for it. The hand provides what the body needs.”
 
“Exactly! If the Church will read and understand and walk in what Paul taught in Ephesians 4:11-16, they would be ready for the wave that is about to come into the Church.
 
“Let Me ask you another question. If you put your hand in front of your face and look in the mirror, what do you see?
 
“I see my hand obscuring my face.”
 
“This is what the five-fold ministry has done for centuries. They have forced the Body of Christ to look to the HAND and not the FACE. I have said to seek My face, yet many have been kept from this directive to seek My face by the very ones that should be pointing to it. The Pharisees received a sharp rebuke for doing this as will those in My house doing it to their flocks today.
 
“So let me see if I understand. Are You saying that the church has been looking at the five-fold ministry instead of to You because Your face has been obscured from Your Church?
 
“Yes. Matthew 23:13 explains this clearly for all to see. This verse also reveals that when you seek My face, you will find My kingdom.”
 
“So the HAND is to groom, feed and care for the Body of Christ so that we are equipped to do the work of the ministry and as we do this we also enter into Your kingdom. Is that right?”
 
“Yes. I Am building My household and every believer is being fit together and joined to be a growing, living Temple for My Spirit to dwell. I have put tools in the hands of every believer and I have and will teach you to use them. You have heard I will break out of the four walls of the church, as My Church cannot be contained.
 
“This AWAKENING will begin in homes and move through family relationships. It will move on Capital Hill and on Wall Street. It will move on academics in a profound way as My glory is seen in the largest to the smallest details. College campuses all the way down to preschools will learn My ways. Hollywood will be shaken to its core and the indecency that has become the norm will soon be scorned and ridiculed. Holiness will settle in the arts as people will detest the detestable and look to heaven to be inspired. The Arts will reveal My kingdom through paint, statues and myriads of creative works will come riding into earth on this wave. Your media will be found in contempt for their lack of integrity and those never heard of before will rise to the top of that field. They will bring honesty and justice back into their ranks. Righteous thoughts will be shared and given proper format.
 
“Those who lead in My church will lead with My love and My thoughts. The judgments held by the Church will be revealed as true or false. Even if the words are true, but shared in a manner that does not reflect My heart of love, will be exposed as false. My leaders must see they are to serve others, not to be served. They must follow My lead by serving, grooming and honoring My flock in all sectors of society. The hand is not greater than the Body and if it cares only for itself and causes the body to stumble and sin, then the body is better off without it. Cut it off! It is better to enter heaven maimed than for the whole body to be cast into hell. Yes beloved, it is that serious.
 
Suddenly I have a sense of awe and the fear of the Lord hits me. “Father,” I say in such a hushed tone I can hardly hear myself. “This is not at all what I expected, but I will share this with whoever has ears to hear. I know You gave me something else the other day about preparing. What do I do with that information?”
 
“That will be part three, “Prepare to exercise your faith.”
 
“Part three it is! Thank You, Father. I bless You and give You all glory and honor and praise. Selah – Amen!
 
Scriptures To Ponder:

Part Three: Prepare To Exercise Your Faith

 
When receiving the first part of what I believe Abba Father gave me for 2012-2015, (Rosh Hashanah 5773-5775/September 16, 2012-September 23, 2015)  I heard the Holy Spirit say, “PREPARE, PREPARE, PREPARE”. After I sent out that post I asked Him a simple question, “How do we prepare? What do we do exactly?” This is His reply:
 
“Remember you need to see and understand what you are preparing for, then you will have the vision and the motivation for the work involved. For the hearts of the fathers to return to the sons and the hearts of the sons to return to the fathers, there must be repentance on both sides. As this occurs, healing will come first to families and then to the land. Many have cried out for this healing to come to their loved ones. Their prayers have come up as sweet incense to My nostrils as this is My desire. The moment there is repentance, I will RUN to each who humble themselves before Me and I will bring the oil of gladness – the Balm of Gilead.
 
“Look first at what Jesus taught in Matthew 7:24-27 and you will see that this parable teaches for man to not only listen His words, but to do what He says. Doing what Jesus says is the FOUNDATION needed for the Church to Awaken to the Renewal!
 
“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
 
“But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”
 
“Both men HEAR the sayings, the teachings of Jesus, but one does what He says and the otherdoesn’t. This is the simple, but very profound difference between the wise and the foolish. Think about the five wise and the five foolish virgins. Were not all ten virgins? Were they not allwatching and waiting for the Lord to open the door to them? Did not the foolish virgins call Him “Lord” as did the wise? The difference is the foolish ones operated in the sin of presumption.They believed they would not have to INVEST their time, energy, or resources to obtain extra oil. They assumed they wouldn’t need it, but the Lord tarried. While they were away trying to find oil to buy the Lord came and it was too late – the door was closed to them. The oil must be acquired before the Awakening! (See Matthew 25:1-13)
 
“Another example of this would be those who prophesy, cast out demons and perform miracles in My name, yet I do not know them. The presumed to invoke My name but for their purpose, not Mine. I call them lawless as they do not do these things under My authority. They are builders of their own kingdoms and their kingdoms will fall. (See Matthew 7:21-23)
 
“Do you remember the woman who poured oil on Jesus’ head and feet – she anointed His body for burial? That was done at great cost to her and she even endured ridicule for her gift, but she invested in the Messiah as He had invested in her. Her story is told wherever the Gospel is preached. (See Matthew 26:6-13; Mark 14:3-9; Luke 7:36-50; John 12:1-8)
Then the Lord gave me a number of Scriptures to put into practice like never before in order to PREPARE for the Awakening. These passages will exercise, strengthen and shore up our faith muscles. They came like rapid fire from a machine gun! Do you recall that Paul taught us that the weapons of our warfare are not natural, in the spirit they are mighty in the pulling down of strongholds. Hallelujah! (See 2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
 
As we put the word of God into PRACTICE we will not be foolish but wise builders. We will not be presumptuous, but full of the invested oil of God. There are many more Scriptures like them, so I urge you to study and research them out! I have tried to keep the references short, but I do recommend reading the chapters – especially the ones included in the link provided below. Do the will of your Father and put them into practice as the “Awakening to the Renewal” is not long from now and we must be ready! People in the world must be able to recognize us as the Church – as the Body of Christ! If they don’t, where will they go – to whom will they turn to for help? How will our Father feel about our lack of preparedness if we ignore His instruction? It is His word that strengths us!
 
Invest In The Oil:
 

  • Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6
     
  • “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35
     
  • Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law. Romans 13:8
     
  • Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality. Romans 12:10-13
     
  • For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. Galatians 5:13
     
  • And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you, so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints. 1 Thessalonians 3:12-13
     
  • I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:1-3
     
  • Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Colossians 3:12-15
     
  • “And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” Malachi 4:6

  • Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”Fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:1-4

  • “And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’” Matthew 25:40
     
  • And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:30-32
     
  • “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” Matthew 6:14-15

 
These are but a few Scriptures, but they are mighty tools and weapons of the kingdom to be put into practice. Love is the more excellent way! I pray you are blessed in the Father’s love as you prepare like never before!
 
May you be blessed in the Father’s love!
Sincerely your sister and co-laborer in Christ Jesus,
Judy Bauman

Eleven Years After 9/11 – a testimony of the one year anniversary
 
Last year, on the tenth year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, I shared with you the testimony of the Lord led me to volunteer at the Family Assistance Center in New York City. Today I will briefly share my side of what happened the following year at the first anniversary at New York City’s memorial.
 
Around July of 2002, I felt a strong urging that I was to go back to NYC to help the families of the 9/11 victims. In a somewhat vague vision I saw myself doing something I truly had no idea how to get accomplished. I saw a table lined with reading materials and a red banner over it that read, “Prayer”. I saw myself with an apron that identified me as a worker. I had no idea how I would get a table, reading materials and a sign to NYC - let alone afford it! I didn’t even know if their city ordinances allowed that sort of thing. I told a friend about my vision and about a month later she happened on a request from YWAM (Youth With A Mission) in NYC asking for volunteers to come pray for the families of the victims. My son Ryan wanted to come with me, so the two of us traveled to NYC.
 
My son and I were the only ones there who had no idea who or what YWAM was or what they did, which was a shock to everyone in the room. We got a crash course on the dos and don’ts of YWAM ministry from the founder, Loran Cunningham! We were then sent out the door with a portable table, reading material to give away, aprons and a banner to display that read, “Prayer Station” – and the banner and aprons were red! I was stunned by the whole thing! But it got even better.
 
Ground Zero in lower Manhattan was where the memorial took place and it was restricted to families and authorized personnel only. The YWAM teams were all randomly assigned to locations around the closed-off area. Ryan and I were assigned to work with a lovely couple who were leaders that had flown in from Australia to help out. The four of us ended being stationed exactly where the families exited the platform of the memorial after their loved one’s name had been called!  We were very careful to respect their space as it was a very intense time of grieving for them. We gently let them know we were praying for them and many stopped for prayer. It was such a blessing to be there for them at that moment.
 
The next day, September 12, 2002, the “9/11 Memorial” at Ground Zero was to open to the public. It was a very busy day in the City. When we arrived at the location where we had been the day before, it was so windy they decided to move us. Our new location, and I am not joking, was the Ground Zero Plaza! We set up our table and prayed for people all day. There were visitors from around the USA that often turned down the prayer when asked, but when I explained this tragedy hurt all of America, most quickly agreed to receive prayer. As we prayed, many would begin to weep from the depth of pain and sense of helplessness caused by this horrific event. It was a great opportunity and I was honored to be a carrier of the Father’s love in that situation.
 
I share this so you can see how God can work – truly in mysterious ways. When He shows you something He wants you to do, even though it often doesn’t make sense, He has a way of causing that thing to come to pass as you seek Him in it. As King Solomon wrote in Proverbs 3:5-6
 
Trust in the Lord with all your heart. And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. NASV
 
God bless and keep you, may His face shine upon you,
Judy

In Worship the Lord allowed me to see the most exquisite scene unfold from His Throne of Grace!
 
His Train Fills the Temple!
 
As the Church came before the Throne to worship the King of kings, I see the Lord Jesus seated on His Throne watching His beloved worship in spirit and truth. 
 
A song rings out:
 
It’s my fragrant oil
It’s my costly perfume
Take my alabaster box – break it open
Let the fragrance arise

 
Jesus watches those who worship Him willingly and without reservation with eyes of love, compassion and joy. He watches them with delight for a long time, but then He can take it no longer! He rises up, steps down onto the floor, and joins one worshiper in dance. The dance is elegant, graceful and lovely.  
 
He then dances with each of the worshippers. Jesus weaves Himself through His people, He takes His time to love and minister to each one. He is not in a hurry with anyone. Some continue in the spirit of the dance as Jesus moves to the next person; others weep and fall to their knees – others fall to their face. There are only tears of joy; there is no sorrow, no shame, no condemnation, nor tears of pain. A gentle wind blows through the great hall and some swoon to its touch. All the worshippers then sway to and fro like wheat blowing in the wind. They are so beautiful as they worship their King.
 
Another song pours forth:
 
I see Your face
You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful!
I see Your face
You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful!

 
The Lord slowly made His way back to His Throne; He turns so gracefully and sits down. He is so majestic and beautiful. His every move is intentional and filled with purpose. 
 
It is at this time that I see His train. (See Isaiah 6:1). I had not noticed it before, but my eyes were opened to see that when Jesus danced with and held each worshipper, He wrapped His train around every soul He touched!
I look out over the great hall and enjoy seeing every worshippers basking in His train which now surrounds them like a warm blanket. It cleanses them and covers them. It comforts and warms them; it blesses them in ways they could never imagine. They are literally being cuddled in His train!
 
The Beloved looks at the joy and peace on each face and He looks so content and full of love for every worshipper. I sit overwhelmed as one who records this joy of His – as we come before Him worshipping in spirit and in truth.
 
Then I realize I am suddenly seeing this vision not from the perspective of an observing scribe, but I am now within the great hall of worshippers. I weep with great joy before my King! I feel the warmth and comfort of His train as it surrounds me. His love is somehow wrapped up in this garment! It is overwhelming. I am overwhelmed with love for the Lord Jesus and His great love for me. I am warm and comfortable and SAFE! At this point I have such a deep revelation of my being safe with Him and begin to declare my joy at being safe – truly safe in Jesus. Hallelujah!
 
I bask in it and share it with you so that you know that He is surrounding you with His love!
Glory!

An Encouraging Word From Abba Father During A Time Of Testing: Come Through!  This “Sifting” Is Unto Life!

(Note: As I was receiving this “Jewels”, I can report that the Lord had a very high level of excitement and joy in His tone of voice!)
 
"There is a squeeze going on! Many feel like they are being put through a sieve (sifter). Do you remember when I told Peter that Satan desired to sift him as wheat, but that I had prayed for his faith not to fail? I Am ever interceding for My Church to be overcomers. I Am ever beckoning her to come to My Throne of Grace to receive mercy in time of need. My instruction is to come boldly – not a like abused, neglected or abandoned children fearful to approach their Father. Come with confidence and know you are My prized possession, My jewels, My flowers, My children.
 
“The Cross provided for you an inheritance that is sure and stable. It doesn’t fluctuate like your markets. As I have told you, gold and silver will rust and moths will destroy, but to My kingdom there is no end.
 
“My jewels, My precious ones have gotten their eyes on the problems set before them. In their shortsightedness they have forgotten to magnify Me in their circumstances. 
 
“There is no condemnation in My words. I don’t seek to condemn, but to draw you near. Remember, I inhabit the praises of My people – I abide in worship. You will (and do) sense My presence like no other time when you abandon yourself to worship Me in spirit and in truth. It can be a sacrifice to bring Me praise, but even if it feels like if you worship Me your guts will spill out of your body, there is no better time to offer it! The more difficult the circumstance, the sweeter the offering is to Me. I know it is your costly perfume. Your sacrifice of praise comes up as sweet incense to My nostrils.
 
“Come through the canal. Come through the key-hole. Come through the gate – the eye of the needle. Come through the door! Everything that binds you will be scraped off and you will run the race set before you unfettered.
 
“Embrace the work of the Cross (death to the flesh and its ways). Go through the birthing canal of My perfect will and know this squeeze you are in is unto life. Praise and worship Me in spirit and truth. Know that I Am interceding for you to receive the prize reserved just for you.
 
“As long as you seek My face, I will lift you up on eagle’s wings and you will fly above the world’s discourse above fear, doubt and unbelief. All these things displease your Father as they are sin. Fear cannot coexist with faith. Faith cannot coexist with doubt and unbelief. Without faith it is impossible to please God. I say again – come boldly to the Throne of Grace and see from your Father’s perspective of love and assurance. You will have your faith in God strengthened. It is My desire for you to have singleness of vision – the vision of a dove.”
 
Forever yours,
Abba

Habakkuk 2:2 Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so that a runner may read it.”
 
 
I asked the Lord what it means to be His disciple. This is what He answered:
"To be My disciple means to walk as I walked - to be as I Am. First and foremost - I Am Love! I love you and I desire you to walk in the type of love that I displayed and modeled for you.
  
"The Only way I could walk in love as the Son of Man was to spend time with My Father.  Father loves Me and I love My Father. We are separate, but we are One. As the Son of Man I faced many opportunities to rightfully lash out at people, but the love that I had, the love that came from My Father, overrode it. The times you read in Scripture that sound like I was angry (when I spoke the woes to the Scribes and Pharisees and when I cleansed the temple) were from the love of the Father. It was not anger as much as it was sorrow. I know there is much debate on this and I do not bring you a new doctrine - I bring you My heart’s cry.
 
"Love one another as I have loved you."
 
"Many cry out to see Me - to see My face and I tell you the truth - when you look at one another you are looking at Me. Look to the least of the brethren. What you do to them, you do to Me. What you do with each other, you do with Me. What you do for them, you do for Me. 
 
"Understand that I desire for you to care for one another. You can in no way fathom how many are alone with no help." (Suddenly I saw the entire world and as it turned I could see millions, maybe billions of hurting people in that brief moment of time.) 
 
"One person cannot take care of the whole world. However, if you will touch people around you in My name and with My love, and then those whom you touch will turn in kind and touch those around them with My love, and those then will also touch others who are around them with My love - THEN MY LOVE WILL BE LIKE A FIRE SPREADING THROUGH A DRY FOREST.” 
 
At that moment I saw a fire begin and spread to the north, south, east and west. Then suddenly I saw the entire earth suddenly ignited (like a gas stove or propane grill) and vividly heard the whooshing sound of the swift blaze!
 
The Lord continued: "I Am the light of the world and in Me there is no darkness. As My disciples reflect the light of My love, they ignite others to reflect the light of My love.
 
"Do you see?
 
"I Am a Consuming Fire! But, I do not bring a destructive fire. I bring a fire that burns off the ropes and sets men, women and children free. My fire is My passion for My church. I burn with love for My church. Touch each other with this pure and holy fire. Touch each other with this pure and holy love. IGNITE those around you with holy fire.
 
"Be careful not to allow the enemy of your soul to manipulate you into perverting My love. My love sets people free. My perfect love destroys fear. My love covers you. My love will never lead you into immorality. Be aware! Satan will use your own desires to sin against Me. You must be wise! You must be diligent! You must stand guard!
 
"To be My disciple means to be like Me. I Am like My Father. We are holy! Be holy as I Am holy and IGNITE those around you to be holy. I would not say this if it were not possible. This can only be done as you are led by My Holy Spirit. So follow My lead. Heed your Teacher. 
 
"Come, Follow Me." 
~End

An Exhortation From The Father’s Heart To Yours: Victor or Victim

“Have you been called into My kingdom to be a victor or a victim? My glorious kingdom has no place for victims. This is not to say that if you have suffered a crime, disease or accident that you are not welcome in the Kingdom of God. What this means is that you will not be able to enter My presence with a spirit of self-pity that relives the past.
 
“I have made you more than a conqueror. You have been given the power and authority and the grace to get through every situation life can throw at you. You are not a victim. Come out of your place of depression and anxiety and come sit at My table of gladness. Come eat My bread. There is more than enough to go around. Come eat at the table of life. I have set before you a banquet of life and offer it all to you. Will you come? Will you eat at the victor’s table of life or will you wallow as a victim in the gutter?”
 
Deuteronomy 30:19b I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life
 
“Do not be a victim of yesterday. Be a victor of today! Rise up and take your place at the table of My grace and let us eat together at the banquet of life.”

First Choice: A word from the Father’s heart to yours on hearing Him though the clamor.
 
 “When those who are called by My name do things their way, they often cause themselves and others great harm. I know that it is very easy to see those things going on around you and react to them. They are in your face (so to speak), and so you feel you must deal with them the best you can. However, if Mine (those belonging to Christ Jesus) would take even a moment to ask of Me, I would give a better solution. Some situations require immediate response from you and this is why continually seeking Me beforehand is so important.  It is much easier for Me to drop the needed solutions, ideas, and plans if your mind is already focused on Me. (It is easier for you to hear.)
 
“I am not your last resort, I Am your First Choice!
 
“This is why I tell you to come boldly in your time of need. When you are in need, that is not the time to be kicking at the gravel under your foot with your head down wondering if it is okay to talk to Me. If you get to know Me, then you will be assured and reassured by the relationship we have established and you will know you are safe to approach Me.
 
“If you make Me your First Choice (of who to talk to, who to get your advice from, who to trust), then each day you will hear more and more clearly. When the time of need arises, there will be no sense of fear, shame or distrust because you will enjoy a sense of belonging – knowing I will indeed work on your behalf!
 
“I love you with an everlasting love and I long for you to come and walk with Me. Will you make Me your First Choice?”
 
Lovingly yours,
Abba
 
Hebrews 4:14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15  For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Amen!

Come Dine at My Table of Hope:  A word From The Father
 
“Wrote this concerning the gross darkness blanketing this rising generation:
 
“There has been unleashed upon the earth a brutal spirit of cynicism as never seen. What once would have been unheard of to speak to another out of concern for the other’s well-being is now being shouted without restraint throughout the global internet community.
 
“Words (spoken or written) bring life or death, correction or rebellion, encouragement or discouragement. You can cause another to stumble and live in darkness because of your words, or you can lift others up and bring the light of hope back to their eyes. Remember, you will be held accountable for every word uttered. 
 
“This rising generation is being bombarded with words that do not edify, comfort, build or instruct. These words wound their souls beyond recognition and cause heard-heartedness; they defame and undermine one’s future and hope. Without vision my people perish and what many are listening to on a continual basis is bringing their hearts down in fear, discouragement and depression. 
 
“The enemy of your souls is attempting to unleash a spirit of death, suicide and murder over this generation like the world has never seen. For an example, he is using the words being broadcast throughout the internet in the form of comments to unleash great harm. Many of those words are in agreement with his plans. This is why your willingness to continually release My words of life are so vital at this time. 
 
“Those who eat at My Table of Delight will share the hope, joy, peace, compassion, edification and love that is given there! However, those who eat at the table of Continual Discontent will ingest the putrid meal of blame, contention, gossip, slander and death. They will vomit it out on everyone near them.  I Am your Shield and in My presence I will keep you from being defiled.
 
“I have set a table before you of hope and blessings. It is served in My presence. You are not to get into agreement with what the enemy is saying, but what I AM saying! Do not clamor and say, “It is a conspiracy!” Have you not heard, “Come, let us magnify the Lord and let us exalt His name together”? Wait for Me even if it seems I Am hiding My face from you; for I shall surely move on your behalf if you wait.
 
“Do not be in fear of what others dread – as their food continually feeds their worst nightmares.
 
“Come My beloved, come and sit at My table and eat of life and light. Eat My bread and drink My wine. Fill yourself on the meat of My provision. Eat what is good and let your soul delight in abundance. 
 
“Where you see others speaking death, you speak life. Where they speak judgment, you speak mercy. Where they speak ignorant opinions, you speak My mind in the matter and bring the word of hope I give you. (If there is not hope or life in your words, they are not from Me.) Bring the goodness of My hope and love to your conversations, and see what I do in your life in spite of the gross darkness surrounding you.
 
Be My salt
Be My light
Be My hands
Be My feet
Be My voice
 
Your Ever-present,
Abba

“As water in My hand flows where I desire, so too will I turn the hearts of leaders. Judgment begins in My house and to those called by My name. Justice will flow in the house of the LORD like a river of oil.  It will ignite a fire of passion for those pursuing Me, but a fire of destruction to those who are doing things their own way. Those who are tuned in to My voice, like Eli, but whose sons were disobedient and unruly, will be required to trust in My plans when I show them how they need to rebuke their rebellious children. They must trust My ways over their own love for their children. These rebellious sons are under a curse because their fathers are like Eli refusing to bring correction where correction is due. Their sons defile My temple, yet nothing is said. The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. When offerings given for My purpose are used for their gain, judgment is at the door. My “Eli” (minister/priest in My house) turns a blind eye and now the curse has fallen upon the grandchildren who are unruly and undisciplined. The door to wickedness has been opened to them and no longer is there a hedge of protection around the children which was once My pleasure to give.
 
“One of the most dangerous thoughts My “Anointed” can have is for them to think they are in right standing with Me because I continue to bless their ministry. Some examples:  

  • One who is in sin prays for the sick and the sick recovers, so he thinks he is in good standing with Me. However, this one was healed because of My mercy and love being poured out to the sick, not necessarily because of the anointing on the one who prayed. Mercy moves My heart.  
  • Another has great teachings and insight, so he thinks that since I gave him this understanding, I am ok with his sin and am willfully turn a blind eye to it; however, My heart is moved by those in the congregation listening. His sin will be – WILL BE – dealt with later, but he thinks because his message was anointed he is in good standing with Me. He is not.
  • Yet another has great visions and sees and writes of My revelations, yet fails to understand what I have shown. The vision of the Church is My hope for her. I am moving her in that direction, but you cannot put new wine in old wine skins.  

"I want my sons and daughters to see that the churches and the ministries I have entrusted into their care are under their stewardship, not their ownership. Those are My ministries – those are My churches and any who touch them are not to defile them! When they touch My flock, they literally touch Me. I would rather that work which I started be destroyed and brought down in ruins than to share it with sinful rebellious children who will would thoughtlessly wound My flock. Remember I raised up Samuel and brought down Eli and his sons.
 
“Many examples could be given, but My Spirit will reveal all things and how this may apply to you. As I show you, then understand that repentance (turning from this sin) is required, not requested. I Am quick to forgive and My mercy endures forever.
 
“There is an end coming to the “Sons of Eli” and that end will not be pretty. If the fathers do not rise up and take a stand, I WILL! I am giving them time to correct the situation and to repent, but the clock is ticking down.  The hour is late.  I will not allow My glory to be shared with the hard-hearted children of Eli. Repentance must be immediate lest I come and remove the Lampstand in their midst.
 
“My will shall be carried out. I Am not wringing My hands in the days of your rebellion, but I will not wrestle with flesh forever. Remember, My discipline and correction is given for you to reap the peaceable fruit of righteousness. Allow yourself to receive My rebuke and you will see and be part of the harvest your heart desires. Do not allow these bitter roots to grow in My sanctuary and defile My flock any longer. It is to be rooted out. My word is clear.  I also gave Esau as an example of an ungrateful son and his example is to be heeded. Learn from the mistakes of Eli and Esau and do not follow their footsteps no matter the cost. Guard the Lampstand and do not allow My glory to depart.”

Your Abba


 Scriptures To Ponder:
Matthew 10:37 - He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.
 
Hebrews 12:11 - Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
 
15-17 looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright. For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears.

More Scriptures To Ponder:
 Proverbs 21:1; Proverbs 3:5-6; 1 Peter 4:17; Daniel 5:27; 1 Corinthians 3:11-18; 1 Samuel 3:10-14; 1 Samuel 4:11; 1 Samuel 4:15-22; Isaiah 55:8; Ezekiel 10:18; Matthew 10:37-42; Mark 2:22; Acts 9:1-5; John 21:15-17; Romans 11:22; 1 Timothy 3:4; 6:9-12; 1 John 1:9; Hebrews 12:7-17; Revelation 2:5

An Odd Encounter Turns Into A Word Of Encouragement And Hope From The Father’s Heart To Yours: Anointed Kingdom Encounters
 
Earlier this week, I was merging onto an interstate highway and really wasn’t paying attention to my speed – I was focused on my plan for the day. As I accelerated, I came upon a utility van in the right lane and went to pass him on his left. (In the USA we are to pass, or overtake, in the left lane.) I looked to my left, but there was a red car coming up fast to pass me. I checked my speed and was surprised to see I was already traveling at 80mph (128kph) and more shocking, this person was going to pass me! I felt annoyed because it seemed the driver was pinning me behind the slow van, but as it passed me I happened to notice the license plates. Because the Lord gave me two messages the week before using license plates, I took notice! (This is not a normal thing for me.)  I won’t say what state it was from, but the letters were “AKE” and there were three 7’s. I recognized there was a “heavenly” message involved when I saw the three 7’s and immediately said, “Okay Lord, what are you showing me!?!” As I was praying about it, I noticed the type of car was a “Focus”. I literally laughed out loud and said, “Yes Lord, I am focusing on the RED FOCUS. What are you saying?”
 
After really seeking Him on this for a few days, here is what He said,
 
“The FOCUS is to be on the blood of Jesus and how My passion for the Church redeemed her. You will see more AKE’s - Anointed Kingdom Encounters!   AKE’s will come upon you suddenly.   You may think you are going fast, but I Am about to OVERTAKE you and lead the way. You may be irritated for a moment – until you recognize it is My leading.
 
“You can expect angelic help in the areas in which you have been anointed. Be cautioned not to worship angels which has been an ongoing temptation for mankind. They are servants – you are sons (you who believe Christ Jesus is the Lord). You are to co-operate with My heavenly hosts, not worship them. God Almighty is the Only One worthy of worship. You are to do My will alone.
 
“I Am releasing kingdom keys and kingdom authority. Will you lock what I require you to lock? Will you unlock what I want to release? I Am coming SUDDENLY – FOCUS on My voice, FOCUS on My leading, FOCUS on My provision bought for you on the Cross of Calvary. My very blood bought your freedom. I released you from the bondage of your sin and iniquity by My shed blood. I hold the keys of death and Hades. I come to the aid of all who are tempted.
 
“I will give you ideas and will bring about circumstances to make those ideas a reality if you are faithful to develop them. 
 
“You will encounter Me in ways you have only dreamed possible. I will speak through the simple and the complex. I will speak through galaxies and quarks (the largest and the smallest known entities). I Am your Father and you know My voice. If you don’t know it yet, I will teach you as any father teaches their children their voice – by talking to you. Focus on Me! I Am who has called you and I call you Mine. I love you with an everlasting love and I am showing you My ways which are not your own. Expect sudden and anointed kingdom encounters with your Father!”
 
Forever in My grace,
Abba

A Word Of Encouragement And Hope From The Father’s Heart To Yours: The Birthing
 
“There is a squeeze going on. Many feel like they have been put in a sieve. Remember when I told Peter that Satan desired to sift him as wheat, but I had prayed for his faith not to fail?
 
“I Am ever interceding for My Church to be overcomers I Am ever beckoning her to come to My Throne of Grace to receive mercy in time of need. My instruction is to comeboldly – not like abused, neglected or abandoned children who are fearful to approach their father. Come with confidence and know you are My prized possessions, My jewels, My flowers, My children! 
 
“The Cross provided for you an inheritance that is sure and stable. It doesn’t fluctuate like your Bear and Bull Markets. As I have told you, gold and silver will corrode and are subject to thieves, but to My kingdom there is no end. My jewels have gotten their eyes on the problems set before them and in their shortsightedness they have forgotten to magnify Me in their circumstances.
 
“There is no condemnation in My words. I don’t seek to condemn but to draw you near. Remember I inhabit the praises of My people – I abide in worship. You will and do sense My presence like no other time when you abandon yourself to worship Me in spirit and in truth. It may be a sacrifice to bring Me praise, but even though it feels like your guts will come out if you praise Me, there is no better time to offer it! That sacrifice comes up as sweet incense to My nostrils. The more difficult your circumstance, the sweeter the offering is to Me. I know it is your costly perfume. The testing of your faith is precious in My eyes.
 
“Come through the channel. Come through the keyhole. Come through the gate – the eye of the needle. Everything that binds you will be scraped off and you will run the race set before you unfettered. Embrace the work of the Cross (death of the flesh and its ways). Go through the birthing canal of My perfect will. Praise and worship Me in spirit and truth, and know that I Am interceding for you to receive the prize reserved just for you.
 
“I Am birthing something in you, My jewel! I Am birthing something of great and lasting value. No thief can steal it. Nothing can cause it to rot, rust or corrode. What I Am doing will last throughout time as your reward is everlasting. When Mary was told she would conceive a son, her response was for it to be done to her according to My will. She is your example in birthing something of Me! Let My will be done in your life!  Mary’s last recorded words were for the servants at the wedding at Cana to do whatever Jesus told them to do. You too are to hear His instruction.  In a parable Jesus taught there were two men who had built houses that were hit by terrible storms, but only one stood. This was likened to hearing His words and doing them. 
 
“You are in the canal. You are being birthed into My will. My will is perfect, so follow My lead.”
 
In My grace,
Abba Father

Going Out On A Limb

In prayer I saw a large oak tree and the Lord told me to climb it.  I climbed up and sat on the first big limb.  Then He told me, "Go out to the end of the limb."

I scooted out until I knew the limb couldn't hold my weight and stopped.  The Lord said again, "Go out to the end of the limb."

I scooted out a little more, but I knew in my mind that there was no way that I could go any further without the limb breaking.  Though I was on the bottom limb, it would have been at least a 20 foot fall, so I stopped.

Again the Lord spoke to me, "Go out to the end of the limb."

I protested and told Him that there was no way that branch, which was as smaller than my pinkie finger, was going to hold me up.

He said, "If I have called you to go out on a limb, then I will hold it up.  Just then I saw the tree and me in it as though I was watching the whole thing from afar.  When he said, "I will hold it up' I saw a huge angel standing underneath the branch holding it up!

The Lord further cautioned me that I was not to go out on just any limb.  I was to only go out on the limbs which He had called me to go out on.  He said that those He had not called me to go out on - He was not obligated to support.

A Word From The Lord’s Heart To Yours: A More Excellent Way
 
“Whom the Son sets free is free indeed. I want you to come to Me unhindered and unfettered. The world’s pulls are increasing at a rate never seen in history. Communication around the world is a constant where in days gone by they were non-existent. Yet in all the communications, only a small portion is directed at Me. Even My Church tends to sing and talk about Me, but not to Me. Many who come to Me only come to give Me their laundry list of what they want Me to do for them. While I do want My people to ask of Me, I want them to first come and sit and listen. 
 
“Come close. I will teach you how to pray from a heart that moves Mine. Sit by My side. Let Me show you a more excellent way. It is a way of love and strength, of courage and compassion, of hope and joy, of kindness and mercy. My perfected love will cast out all your fears and anxieties.  All the fears of what could happen will melt away as you see Who holds your future.
 
“My plans will not be thwarted. They will flow as water through a river. If the river gets obstructed, the water finds another way to reach its destination, but make no mistake; it does reach its destination.
 
“Will you allow Me to flow through you to My final destination, or will you be obstinate?  If you choose to do things your own way and in your own timing, then I will find another to flow through. It is your choice. Either way, My will is done on earth as it is in heaven; however, I have a plan for you that is only fulfilled as you take My hand and walk with Me. It is only realized when you allow Me to flow through you as water through a river’s bank. 
 
“If you allow Me to shape, bend and mold you to My will, you will find yourself as valuable as the Gold of Ophir. This is the value I desire to bring out in you. If you are willing, your worth in My kingdom will be great and sought out by many.
 
“Will you be malleable in My hands? Will you invest your worth in My will? Will you allow Me to shape your boundaries and flow through you to the end?
 
Scriptures To Ponder:
John 7:38; 8:36; 15:9; Psalm 46; 78:7, 8; Romans 8:12-17; Second Corinthians 10:3-5; Galatians 5:1,17-23; Colossians 3:12-15; First John 4:12-19; First Kings 10:11, 12; Revelation 2:7
