Jewels from Judy: It’s Time to Cross Over, Trust Me!
Judy A Bauman
A strong word from the Father concerning the revival of the Church and His promises fulfilled.
It's Time to Cross Over, Trust Me!
“It’s time to cross over, My children, but heed the warning I gave to Israel before they went into the Promised Land. Follow My instructions and do not get ahead of Me! When they followed My leading, even when it did not make sense in the natural, the Walls of Jericho miraculously came down! The fortified walls of the enemy are no match for Me and My heavenly hosts! The enemy may have had many parts and pieces come together for the ‘Curse Bomb’ to be successful when it was launched in 2019, but the explosive power of My blessings will overtake his worldwide curse like a tsunami.
“You must know where you are to take your stand in this time of great change. While the enemy has made it look like he is winning, I assure you that I Am so far ahead of him that he is blinded by the dust left in My wake! My plan was already put into motion long before he was created, so do not buy into his rhetoric. Trust Me!
“Consider the rebuilding of My city, Jerusalem as is written in the book Nehemiah. See how each builder faithfully took his place and rebuilt and repaired the wall and gates. The enemies of Israel mocked, ridiculed, threatened them in fierce anger, and did everything to discourage the rebuilding. They tried to coerce and deceive Nehemiah to sin against Me, but he did not hide like a coward where he knew he had no right to be. The enemy plotted to murder the builders, so they built with one hand and defended with the other. My people listened to Nehemiah’s wisdom and kept trumpeters nearby so when the enemy came, the others would rush to their defense. In coming together, they overcame and finished the project even though they were under great distress!
“In many cases, the Church has become so competitive with one another that the common goal of the Kingdom of God, to ‘Go make disciples,’ has been neglected and even forsaken. Some have completely forgotten the mandate given her. Pastors and leaders, I speak to you. This is not about growing ‘your’ church, it’s about growing My kingdom! I desire to work in your midst, but if you hold onto your flock as if you were the one who died for their sins, you are building your own kingdom. If you are jealous of other pastors’ success or rejoice in their failure, that is conduct unbecoming a leader who is called by My name. This is NOT a competition! Do not forget how far I have brought you, and remember, My body is large and not confined to any individual vision.”
“If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.”
1 Corinthians 12:26 ESV
"You are looking at a gate, a place where I have called you to build, but it is not the whole city. LOOK! Open your eyes and see. The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. One reason there are ‘few’ is because some leaders are heaping disciples to themselves. I have called apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers to equip the saints for the work of the ministry. Leaders are to raise up the Body to walk the earth and bring in the harvest. Send them out when I call them. Just because they leave you does not mean they have forsaken Me. Again I say, if you raise disciples to only serve you, you are building your own kingdom. This is made evident when you won’t release them without a fight. This should not be.
"Remember in Nehemiah, the people were counted, every tribe and family mentioned. I know My beloved ones by name and where I have called them to be, so do not get between Me and them. That is a dangerous place for you to be found! Do not be stubborn and unwilling to be trained and disciplined by My hand. I discipline those I love. Do you feel convicted? Repent quickly or your lampstand will be removed. Encourage those I send to you and do not prohibit them from their place on the wall – train, equip, and bless them when they go. Do this in front of the congregation so that more will want to follow My leading to go where I Am sending them.
“If you will do this, then the true revival you desire will come to your house. Have you not heard? I desire revival fire all around the earth. It is time! However, you must be willing to release My chosen ones into the field where I have called them and not hoard them to yourself. Hoarders will not be allowed to take part in this amazing harvest coming in your day. Join hands with other leaders, and if you have a hatchet, bury it! Reconcile and be restored if it is possible. If it is not possible, forgive, shake the dust off your feet, and release the relationship to Me. I will then move you into the true kingdom work that I have called you to do.
“If you have heard My voice, but the one who gives you pastoral care is holding you to themselves, be like Abraham and leave the land of your father and go to the place I show you. You will be blessed for obeying me as will many others.
“Beloved, if you build My house, build My people, you will Cross Over and see My promises fulfilled. Trust Me!”
