Jewels From Judy

Friday, December 14 2007

As we approach the end of 2007 and look forward to what the Lord has for us in the coming year, it is important that we take stock in what has already been given us.  I have been seeking the Lord for 2008 and interestingly He has made it clear that I am to rerelease the word for 2007 before He will release the word for 2008!

So I submit to you the word the Lord gave me for 2007.  It was originally sent out in five parts.  I hope you can use it as a five day study and I strongly recommend reading the Scripture references as I know the Lord will speak to you as you do. 

Be blessed in the Father's love,
Judy Bauman

2007 - The Year of Cadence

Part One: To My people who are called by My name:

As you enter into and proceed through 2007, I do not desire for you to make resolutions for this year, I desire for you to make a revolution.  This revolution is not to occur outside in the world, but on the inside of your heart and mind.  This word is not meant to merely impact you over just one year; it must change you for life.  I desire a revolution of purity and holiness in the people who are called by My name.  It is time to fervently seek My face.  I do not ask this of unbelievers; I ask this of you.  It is time by the power of My Spirit to utterly put to death the misdeeds of the body so that you will live.  I tell you it is time to overthrow your fleshly nature. Your flesh and all its desires are no longer to govern you.  Do not sit idle and think of ways to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.  It is time for those who call themselves Mine to wake up!  It is time to move.  The slumber that you have been in has been deep, and rousting you awake has taken much time and energy.  What will it take to get your attention? 

(See 2 Chronicles 7:14; Romans 13:11-14; Ephesians 5:13-17; Revelation 3:2, 3)

The hour has come for you to completely wake up from your slumber, because your salvation is nearer now than when you first believed. Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, put on My armor, put on My light, put on My love, put on a garment of Praise.  If you really want to see breakthrough in your life, take off the old man and deeds of darkness. Put on Christ!  My soldiers - those who are the ambassadors of My love - are lining up.  They are the ones who have been tried in My fire and have been tested in the wilderness.  They have gone through many fastings and times of consecrated prayer.  They know My voice and another they will not follow.  These are the ones I trust to carry the fire of My love for the nations and to the nations.  My love wins all battles.  I Am calling you today to be part of that army.  I Am asking you to get into formation. I Am beckoning you to war against hate with My love and forgiveness.  Blessed are the merciful for they will be shown mercy.  Each time you choose mercy over judgment you overthrow the powers of darkness.  Judge not or you will be judged.  Instead, send confusion into the camp of the enemy by forgiving offenses.  When the enemy seeks to strike at you, turn and praise and worship your God!  Confound him with your praises of victory as My people did when they were surrounded by the enemy at The Valley of Berachah.  You are more than conquerors through Christ who loves you, so go into the battle knowing that you have already won.

(See 2 Chronicles 20:1-26; Isaiah 61:3; Matthew 5:7; 7:1, 2; Luke 6:36; John 3:16; 10:4, 5, 27; Romans 8:13; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21; Galatians 3:27; Ephesians 6:10-18; Colossians 3:1-17; 2 Tim 2:4

There is a sound on the horizon, My dearly loved children, friends and soldiers.  Do you hear it?  It is the sound of My army.  It is the sound of cadence.  It is the sound of My army marching in step with Me and along side My heavenly angelic hosts. Can you hear the sound of heaven?  Can you hear the cadence in your heart?  Do you feel the rhythm beating within every fiber of your being?  This is a military like no other.  I provided for your atonement and I can provide anything you need in any situation.  This army has been given powerful weapons and has been trained to use them by My Spirit because they are spiritual weapons.  They are mighty in the pulling down of strongholds.  Take every thought captive, beloved, and make your will obey the ways of your King!  My will be done. Line up, fall in, march, follow Me. 

(See Isaiah 51:4-7; Matthew 6:10; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5; Acts 2:2

My grace has been extended in an extraordinary way to those who heeded the word and submitted their flesh to My Spirit in 2006.  Even if it were a failed attempt, I see your heart and a double measure of grace is given to you now to walk in victory. Receive it.  Receive My grace.  This is not about your keeping a set of rules.  This is about following Me, trusting Me, and seeking My counsel in every area of your life.  As you walk in step with Me in 2007 and allow Me to bring you into spiritual perfection, you will see miracles flow freely from My storeroom into the places of greatest need.  The release of My grace will be clearly seen and not hidden in a back room.  Believers and unbelievers alike will stand in awe together.  So rise up in My love and soar to new heights by My hand and My provision.  My grace is sufficient.  My power is made perfect in your weakness.

(Deuteronomy 28:2; Proverbs 3:5-8; Isaiah 52:2; Matthew 24:27; 2 Corinthians 12:9)

Love,
Abba

2007 - The Year of Cadence

Part Two: My Desires for My Church

Let Me tell you what I desire.  I desire to see My beloved Church arise in unity and strength.  I desire to see My Church step in time.  I long to see you revolutionized by walking in My ways.  My ways are pure and holy and true and you will be blessed and whole and healed as you walk in them.  O rejoice at this news dear ones!  Does My word tell you that I desire to see the whole Body of Christ built up, joined and held together by every supporting ligament?  Yes!  I yearn to see you grow and built up in love.  Do not live as the unbelievers do, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the hardening of their hearts.  As it is written in Scripture:

"Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion." Hebrews 3:7, 8a

Those written of in this Scripture never entered into My rest. Do not be stubborn like they were in their disbelief.  See to it that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from Me. Instead run to Me!  Run to the Mercy Seat for this is the hour of grace.  Return to the joy of your salvation. Encourage one another every day as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness. 

(See Psalm 103:3; 133:1; John 17:23; Romans 15:5; Ephesians 4:11-18; Hebrews 3:19; 4:16)

I Am asking you to view your circumstances and the circumstances of those around you from My heavenly perspective.  Follow Jesus' example; He did nothing without seeing Me do it first.  He acknowledged that He could do nothing in Himself and taught you that you can do nothing in yourself.  Let me show you everything as I showed Him.  I want you to see what is going on around you and your world from My vantage point - from My overwatch(1).  Ask for the eyesight of an eagle. I will freely give the keen vision of an eagle to whosoever will ask Me.  I want you to be able to see afar off. Ask Me for the ointment and I will heal your eyes.  They are dimmed from having to strain and squint to see through the darkness of this world.  I have much for you to see because the enemy is advancing in unparalleled ways.  What is impossible for man is possible with God. Only believe.

(See John 5:19, 20; 6:28, 29; 14:9-14; Mark 5:36; 10:27; Revelation 3:18; 12:14)

Satan's time is short and he grows increasingly ruthless.  He desires to blind you completely by poisoning your vision.  He does not want you to see him as he advances.  He uses camouflage to trick My church.  He uses your own flesh and its desires against you with the goal to destroy you.  Be careful what you look at and bring into My temple.  You are My temple and I love you!  I tell you this to protect you and not to keep you from "fun".  While sin may seem fun for a season, you must understand that Satan's goal is to steal, kill and destroy you, and he is using your own flesh to do it.  Your carnal nature is drawn to sin, so you must war within your members and take every thought captive to make it obedient to the Lord Jesus Christ.  Remember though, Satan and his demons are not omnipresent nor can they read your mind.  Do not get into agreement with his lies.  Do not give him and his cohorts power over your life. He can only gain it if you hand it to him.  Do not assign to him what belongs to Me and that is glory.  Do not glorify him.  My church tends to speak over and over again what Satan and his demons are doing and that glorifies them; it magnifies them.  Come!  Magnify the Lord!  Wash the venom from your eyes in My Living Water.  Jesus disarmed the powers and authorities of darkness. He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the Cross.  Look at what Jesus has done to defeat them. Speak of what He has done to set you free.   Jesus came to give you life and give it to you in abundance. Glorify Him!

(See Psalm 34:3; John 5:20, 21; 8:36; 10:10; Romans 7:21-25; 2 Corinthians 10:5; Galatians 5:19-21; Colossians 2:13-15; Revelation 12:12; 14:7)

Be wise with your words and be wise in your treatment of others.  Be wise with all that you say and do.  If you follow Jesus' two commandments - to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind, and love your neighbor as yourself - then it will be well with your soul. This is not to say you will not suffer hardship.  You will.  That thinking is in direct conflict with My Word and is from "another gospel".  Jesus taught that tribulation would come, but that He had overcome the world. The prince of this world had nothing on Jesus, and as you are in Christ, Satan has nothing on you either.  Take joy in that knowledge!

(See Matthew 12:37; 22:36-40; 24:9-14; Luke 7:35; John 14:30; 16:33)

Love,
Abba

(1) Overwatch - The term overwatch originates in U.S. military doctrine.  In modern warfare overwatch is the state of one military vehicle supporting another unit while they are executing fire and movement tactics.  Anoverwatching unit has taken a position where it can observe the terrain ahead.   The overwatch position can especially search out enemy positions. This allows it to provide effective covering for advancing friendly units.

Part Three:  The Meat of the Matter:

Understand that I Am the God of the universe and I Am is inviting you to My war-room.  Will you come?  This is not a time for the weak or faint of heart.  It is time for mighty men and woman of valor to rise up and take their place.  It is time to come out of the caves and advance My kingdom and My purpose.  Be careful not to have any agenda but Mine.  Your agenda will surely cause you to drift off the course of My plan. My plan is perfect.  Trust that I will assign your post, so do not try to figure out where you are to be and what you are to do, as it is up to Me to determine your position.  I will assign your duties.  I will make it plain.  If you try to place yourself or elevate your own rank in My army, it is likely that you will choose to go somewhere and do something you think sounds like the best assignment.  You must trust Me that this could be a fatal miscalculation on your part.  If you assign yourself to the post of your comfort and choosing, you will most likely be in direct opposition to My purpose and plan for your life.  I Am God of the heavenly hosts and saints.  I do know what is best for you.  Once you know what position I have called you to, march to it and go forth with confidence, not arrogance, beloved, with confidence in Me to see you through every battle and to provide your every need.  Stand alert, so if your orders change, quickly comply and move to your new post.  If you do not trust Me to command you, then who is your Lord?  Have you accepted My Son as Savior, but not made Him your Lord?  I ask you to trust your heavenly Father.  I discipline those I love.  Allow Jesus to be your King, Ruler, and Lord of your life.

(See Exodus 15:3; 1 Corinthians 12:4-14; Philippians 2:2-11; Hebrews 12:4-8, 11; 1 John 5:14; Revelation 4:1, 19:19)

Remember that the weapons that I have provided to My army are mighty in the pulling down of strongholds.  These are not natural weapons but spiritual ones because you are in a spiritual battle. However, I issue this warning: Do not pick up the weapons of your enemy or you will become like your enemy. Satan's weapons are jealousy, suspicion, gossip, envy, dissension, discord, slander, factions, contention, strife, unforgiveness, bitterness, wrath, anger, hatred and the like. These are rampant in the church and come from a spirit of pride.  Satan wants you to emulate him and I have given you the choice as to whom you will serve.  So choose wisely!  Have I not warned you in My Word that those who practice such things will not enter into My kingdom?  Do not emulate the devil. Satan prowls around and seeks to destroy you.  He plans to use the death of his servants as an excuse to wage war against the saints. Use My weapons, not the weapons of this world to disarm him and his demons. Pick up the sword of My Word and use it to demolish the evil one's plans to destroy you, your family, those you love and those to whom you are bound by My Spirit.  I will give you wisdom and skill to use it.  My Word is your sword.  Wield it only against the enemy.  Do not be found to be one that wounds a brother or sister in Christ when using My Word - your Bible.  This is a form of self-mutilation as you are all one body.   Instead, love one another deeply with the love (agape) that I give because love covers a multitude of sin. Strengthen, comfort and encourage each other with My Holy Scriptures.  Rulers, authorities, principalities and powers of darkness do not have any defense against My love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness or self-control.  When you walk in the fruit of My Spirit; when you love those who hate you and pray for those who persecute you; when you forgive grievances and bear with one another; when you refuse to allow a root of bitterness to take hold of you; when you take up your cross and follow Jesus - then you are demolishing the devil's plans.  Walk in victory, beloved!  You are known in heaven as My chosen, as My elect, and as My children.  Walk humbly before both your God and mankind; if you do, you will have great authority in and by My Spirit. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.

(See Micah 6:8; Luke 9:23-27; 14:27; 1 Corinthians 14:3; Galatians 5:19-26; Ephesians 6:17; Colossians 3:11-17; Hebrews 12:15; 2 Tim 2:24; 1 Peter 2:9-12; 4:8; 5:8, 1 John 5:2; Revelation 2:10)

This is the greatest warfare that mankind can be engaged in and I am calling you to join My army.  Will you walk in My love? If these terms of engagement are difficult for you to envision, again I encourage you to ask Me for the eye ointment to heal your vision so that you can see from My vantage point.   The heavenly view is lovely, beloved! 

 "I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may be rich; and white robes to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nakedness from being seen; and salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see.  I reprove and discipline those whom I love. Be earnest, therefore, and repent.  Listen!  I Am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear My voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you, and you with Me.  To the one who conquers I will give a place with Me on My throne, just as I Myself conquered and sat down with My Father on His throne.  Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches."  Revelation 3:18-22

Love,
Abba

2007 - The Year of Cadence

Part Four:  Revelry!  Awaken and Join the Cadence of Righteousness!

O My, beloved church, what will awaken you from your deep slumber?  Many think I desire to bring calamity to bring the world to its knees. This is not My desire.  This has never been My desire.  I Am a merciful God and calamity grieves Me.  The atonement for all sin for all time was provided for you on the Cross of Calvary.  Jesus' blood is the perfect sacrifice and no other is needed.  Great is My love!  I desire for you to be on your knees because I Am your King and out of your love and devotion towards Me.  My desire for you to bow is to confess Jesus is Lord, not because a calamity came your way and you sought Me out as your last resort.  However, know this, if a calamity has brought you to Me, all of heaven rejoices with Me!  Whatever comes your way that causes you to "come to yourself" and turn to Me, then know that I will RUN to meet you.  I will fit you with a robe, a ring and shoes for your feet to walk in My ways and in My authority.

(See 1 Chronicles 21:15; Psalm 95:6; 103:8-14; Daniel 6:10; 10:10-15; Luke 15:10-24; Ephesians 5:14-17; Hebrews 9:26)

You are accepted in the Beloved, but do not think that I will take lightly the avoidance of My correction.  Everyone I love, I correct.  Every child I accept, I discipline.  Please do not lose heart in the process.  It is My desire for you to reap an abundant harvest.  So I ask you, is Jesus your Lord?  If you say yes, yet you do not walk in His teachings, then you deceive yourself into believing you are saved.  If you do not do what He said, then you do not truly believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord.  If this offends you then ask Me to search your heart.  I know you. I love you deeply and My desire is for you to walk with Me.  I will show you My truth and truth will overcome your offenses and unbelief.  You are to follow My Son, Jesus.  Followers are to follow, not to attempt to coerce Me to do what they think they want Me to do for them.  Do not take lightly the gift of grace given you.  Do not think you may do whatever you feel like doing and I will just look the other way on the Day.  My child, you must see that I Am just, I Am holy, I Am righteous.  I Am impartial.  You are misled if you think I will wink at your sin and let you pass. Be responsible for your actions and allow My correction to heal you where you are hurt.  Be holy for I Am holy!  Does this sound like a request?  I warn not to mock the blood of My Beloved Jesus shed for you on Calvary by walking in the ways of the world.  Do not mock My grace. If you operate in this spirit, I ask you to repent and receive My forgiveness.  If you refuse then you will suffer a dreadful blow. You are warned continually of this fact in Scripture and you are warned now.  ALL of My promises are "Yes" in Christ.  This is not just for the blessings, but also for the curses that I have so carefully warned you to avoid. 

(See Psalm 139:23, 24; Matthew 4:19; Luke 9:62; Romans 3:22-26; 2 Corinthians 1:20; Galatians 6:7; Hebrews 12:5-7; 1 Peter 1:15-22; 1 John 1:9)

See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.  For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.   Deuteronomy 30:15, 16

Many think that they are a special case and that they will be the one that will be exempt from My laws, decrees and instruction. No one is exempt from My Word.  Did I make an exception for Jesus?  Was He tested in the wilderness by the enemy?  Did He seek Me to remove His cup?  Was He tempted in all things? Was He rejected and abandoned?  Do you see?  Not even Jesus was exempt from My Word.  I would not be a just and impartial God if even one person were allowed exemption because I would be breaking My own Word.  I will not do that. I did not spare the natural branches. Consider therefore the kindness and the severity of God.

(See Matthew 26:39; Luke 4:1-13; Romans 11:19-22; 1 Peter 2:21-25; 2 Peter 2:21-24)

These words that you hear may sound demanding and even harsh, but dear one, you must understand what is at stake. Thousands of souls are on the line - including yours.  You must understand the times in which you live. You live in days which are perilous and fraught with danger.  Darkness covers the earth and gross darkness on the people, but I will arise upon you and My glory will be seen around and about you if you heed My warnings and walk closely with your God.  How you choose to live has eternal consequences. 

(See Isaiah 60:1-5; Matthew 6:10; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; 2 Peter 3:9; 15-18)

My Son warned you clearly:

"I Am the Vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in Me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.  This is to My Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be My disciples.  As the Father has loved Me, so have I loved you. Now remain in My love."  John 15:5-9

Remain, remain, remain in My Son - remain in the Vine!  Many believe they can presume to proclaim that they love My Son, yet go about doing whatever they feel like doing.  My word is clear on that way of thinking:

What then are we to say? Should we continue in sin in order that grace may abound?  By no means! How can we who died to sin go on living in it?  Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.  Gal 6:1-4

But if your heart turns away and you do not hear, but are led astray .I declare to you today that you shall perish; you shall not live long in the land that you are crossing.This day I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live, loving the LORD your God, obeying Him, and holding fast to Him.  For the Lord is your life. 

Deuteronomy 30:17a, 18a, 19, 20a

Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness.  Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him.  I write to you, dear children, because your sins have been forgiven on account of His name.  1 John 2:9-12

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless.  James1:22, 26

Do not willfully sin beloved child.  My precious gift of perfected love was not given lightly - Jesus paid not only your bail but also served your sentence.  I tell you again, to purposefully and willfully sin, knowing I Am merciful mocks the blood that was shed for sin and God is not mocked.  The reason many mock Jesus' blood and are totally oblivious to this deadly delusion is because they refuse to be corrected by My Spirit of Truth.  I ask you to allow yourself to be corrected, beloved.  "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."  I desire for you to yield a great harvest of peaceable fruit which is My righteousness worked out in you.  Will you allow Me to show you the more excellent way?

(Please see Isaiah 61:1; Psalm 107: 1-16; Matthew 4:17; 1 Corinthians 12:31; Hebrews 12:11)

Love,
Abba

2007 - The Year of Cadence

Part Five:  The Least Shall Be Greatest

Will you allow yourself to become great in My kingdom by becoming the least?  If you will serve mankind as Jesus served, you will be given great authority in this age and the ages to come.  Do you choose to join in cadence with My will?  My army readily pledges their allegiance to Jesus.  This is not about your race, gender, age, nationality, social/spiritual/military status, education, or religious denomination.  I Am not impressed with your résumé. Those who hear Me pledge their allegiance to the Lamb of God who alone is worthy to open the scrolls.  Jesus was obedient to the Cross and it is My desire for you to walk in obedience for eternal life!   The gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it.  The army which awakens, hearkens to My voice, and marches in cadence with My will - are Mine.  He who endures to the end will be saved. 

(See Matthew 7:14; 24:13; Luke 9:48; 2 John 1:6; Ephesians 1:20-23; Galatians 3:28; Philippians 2:2, 3, 8-13; Revelation 5:9-14)

In My Word it is recorded that the disciples of Jesus were arguing as to whom among them would be most famous. My Son perceived their hearts and gave them an illustration using a child.  He sat the child next to Him and said, "Whoever welcomes this child in My name welcomes Me, and whoever welcomes Me welcomes the One who sent Me; for the least among all of you is the greatest."

(See Luke 9:46-48)

You will be known by your fruit.

What is in your heart?  How well does the Lord know you?  Do you call Jesus, "Lord"?  Beloved, examine yourself carefully for so did the five foolish virgins:

"Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.  But he replied, Truly I tell you, I do not know you." Matthew 25:11, 12  

Jesus said, "Many will say to Me, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?" Then I will tell them plainly, "I never knew you. Away from Me, you evildoers!" (Matthew 7:22

Do you see how important it is for Jesus to know you?

My Son did not tell this to His disciples for shock value. Indeed many will say this and they will be known in My kingdom as "evil-doers" for they sought their own fame and not My perfected will.  They took the bait of Satan to build their own kingdom and sought fame and fortune for themselves using the power of My Son's name.  They will not enter into the kingdom of heaven.  The five foolish virgins were shut out of the wedding banquet.  They thought calling Him "Lord" was enough.  They believed being a virgin was enough.  These five even had lamps as they waited.  However, they presumed they did not have to take the time and invest their resources to buy oil to keep their way lit until My Son's return.  You are the light of the world but you cannot come into My kingdom if you walk in darkness.  It is not My desire for any to perish.  It is My deepest desire to say the words to you, "Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!"  So follow the instructions I left to guide you into My eternal kingdom.  Walk in the light as He is in the light.  Be as the wise virgins and awaken from your slumber, trim your wick, fill your lamps with My oil, and come meet the Bridegroom. 

(See Matthew 5:14; 6:23; 7;13-20; 25:1-13; 23; 1 John 1:7)

Recall the parable of the two men who both heard the words of the Lord and one was likened to building on rock and the other on sand.  Though they each heard the words, only one of the men actually put My words into action.  He was wise. The other man heard the words but did not do them.  He was foolish. They both had harsh storms of life hit them.  Both had to endure.  However, only one stood after the storms had passedbecause he had listened and obeyed the word of the Lord.  That man was likened to one who built his house on the rock.  I Am the Rock.  You know this, but you also need to know that you must put into action what I am telling you.  I want you to stand!  If you do not walk in obedience to My word, you will be as the foolish man whose house is lost.  Would you not want to avoid losing everything?  This is My desire for you as well, dear one.  So walk in My love, walk in obedience.  Rejoice for great is your reward.

(See Deuteronomy 32:4; Matthew 7:24-27; 25:1-13, 23; Luke 6:35; Philemon 1:21; 2 John 1:6)

In all these illustrations, and many others, Jesus sincerely warned the disciples of the importance of walking obedient to the word of God and by His Spirit He is now sincerely warning you.  You cannot live with one foot in the world (toying with sin) and one foot in the kingdom (seeking My heavenly rewards). Those giving Jesus lip-service will not come into the kingdom of God.  Do you not understand that I AM is capable of cutting directly through to the truth of your motivations?  I know your heart better than you do.  There is a reason it is written in the Word:

"The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?  I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve." Jeremiah 17:9, 10

Please dear Church, I am pleading with you to repent fromhidden sin and come back to Me with the total abandonment of a child in mid leap.  I WILL catch you!  Does My Word tell you to come to Me as a child?  Trust Me, I will catch you!

(See Matthew 18:1-5; deeply ponder Luke 12:1-5)

There is only obedience or disobedience.  Good intentions are not obedience.

(See Hebrews 2:1-3; 5:8-10; 1 John 3:21-24; 5:3-5; Revelations 3:3)

Turn away from that thing.  It is the thing that you seek to keep hidden and do not anyone to find out.  It is that thing that you know you spend too much time with that has become more important to you than anything - including Me.  You know what it is, because as you read this, you know what you need to turn away from.  Lay it down and turn to Me.  The hour is late.  I have already told you this many times through many voices.  I love you deeply and I have much for you to do in this year, but the first step is to destroy the thing that you spend more time with than you do Me.  As it is written, I Am a jealous God and you shall have no other gods before Me.  My desire is for you and sharing you with worldly things is intolerable for Me.  In a very real sense, you are prostituting yourself and wanting Me to bless you in it.  I cannot and I will not do that.  Please test your works.  Are they good works or My best? 

(Please read Exodus 20:3 and ponder 1 Corinthians 3:11-17)

Beloved, throughout this word there has been a great deal of correction.  I commend you for pushing through it.  If you do not hear this by the Spirit, you will hear condemnation. Remember that there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.  Any correction you have received comes from the heart of the Father who loves you more than you could ever love yourself.  I will wipe every tear from your eyes.  You are cherished.

Love,
Abba

May God's love be yours in abundance both now and forever,
Judy Bauman
