For the New Year I have started bringing a Weekly Word that I have received from the Lord. It's a new direction for this blog but one I hope you will like and would love to receive feedback from you with comments. For February, I'm featuring When God Speaks : 40 Days and Nights of His (Amazing) Promises.

Dragon Slayer

The clouds are gathering. Everything is falling into place. The storm is brewing. It will unleash terrible whoas  upon the earth. Yet do not fear my little ones. If you are my children, I will hide you in the cleft of My Hand. I will be your rock and fortress.

Do not worry about the impending storm, but neither ignore the signs of My great coming. Great evil is gathering its troops. Do not be ignorant of the cause of these terrible whoas. It is the face of Satan himself who wants to destroy life, especially Christians. 

Yet have I not told you greater things were yet to come. If you are imbued with power on high, greater works will you do. Miracles will abound as the end times draw near. However, do not overly concern yourself with these either. 

Let me make you into a vessel. One who can be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. I can only fill you up to the degree that you surrender to Me. The flesh screams to have its way, but you must not succumb. This is the most important work to be done in your life: surrender to Me. Then obey.

As you walk in loving obedience, you will be filled with My Holy Spirit and conquer the evil crashing down all around you and on this nation. Evil times call for greater light and thereby further obedience. Step out of the shadows of Morder and into the light of obedience. Slay the dragons within for there are many more approaching on the earth.

How can you sleigh dragons when you are empty handed? Take up what I have already given you--My Word, My Holy Spirit, and most importantly My Son, who is a representative of my forgiveness, grace and love. Enter the battle armed and dangerous.

I do not call you merely to sit by and let evil overtake the land. I call you to enter the fray, in the cleft of My Hand. Take up your weapons, with the Sword of the Spirit in your right hand and the fruits of the Spirit in the other. Let love,  joy, peace,patience, kindness, goodness, and self control reign within.

Allow Me to aide you in destroying the enemy inside, the flesh, and then you will become a sharpened instrument in My hand. Thus I will call you to battle the enemy of the whole human race, the serpent of old.  I make each and every disciple, who has been disciplined by My Hand, a dragon slayer. 

(See previous Word, The Furnace of Affliction Brings Joy, for further understanding of God's discipline).

Weekly Word: The Furnace of Affliction Produces Joy

If you are in the "furnace of affliction" allow Me to refine you for my purposes. I have placed you there for a very special reason. How else, as such a blessed people, can you grow in My ways? I have given you every earthly and "spiritual blessing." It is the inward work that I want to accomplish in you. To form in you character, the fruits of the spirit, and the imprint of My Son's hands, reaching out in love and healing towards others.

These cannot be formed when everything is going your way. Suffering builds strength of character and turns your head away from the things of the world, to Me. If you allow this companion to do the work I have intended, He will draw you closer to Me.

You have so many "good" and "bad" things to choose from. Sometimes the good can be the enemy of the "best." I intend the best for your life, for eternal purposes to be formed in you. Whatever circumstances you are in can be the very thing I am choosing to refine you. Here are some guidelines to follow to know if this is from My hand and will benefit you in the end.

Will My name be glorified by applying 1 Corinthians 13 love to the situation? If so, you will grow in unconditional love and reflect the Son. You will develop strength of character and love, thereby able to bear all things, believe all good things and hope for the best in Me.

Secondly, will your soul prosper by learning to "count it all joy when you encounter various trials"? If so, yield to Me. Let me do a work that will produce great joy. You will learn how to draw from the deep wellsprings of joy. How privileged are you!

Thirdly, will others see what you are going through an be encouraged in the faith by your actions and attitude? If so,. you are on the right path. Do not seek escape. I know your sorrow, but in my timing all sorrow and sighing will flee away. You will rejoice with a joy greater than you have ever known.

"I have refined you, but not as sliver. I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. For my own sake, for My own sake, I will do it" (Isaiah 48: 10-11).

I Am Calling

Here are tow entries from my Work in Progress, I Am Calling , which is a daily devotional of words from God similar to Jesus Calling

“And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed” (Exodus 3:2).

When I plant a desire in your heart or give you a vision, let no man steal it from you. Pray that it comes to pass and if it doesn’t come quickly, don’t despair. Examine yourself and pray. Not all things are realized in your time frame. Some dreams take years to come to fruition, as in the example of Moses who waited forty years to hear from Me. Don’t let go of what I have given you. You can know it is from Me if the dreams don’t fade, but keep returning. If it will bring glory to My name and honors Me, then I have planted in your heart. Nurture your visions with faith. Believe I can do the impossible.

“With God all things are possible” (Mark 10:23).

Many speak of doing the impossible and have faith in themselves. I tell you to have faith in Me and I will do the impossible in you. To build a kingdom on this earth is possible though human effort. To build the kingdom of God takes the work of the Holy Spirit. It is only possible through Me. The kingdom of God is found in righteousness, peace and joy. It is my great reward and that of the Holy Spirit that does the impossible inside you. This is the lasting kingdom that cannot be destroyed. It is what I desire to build in you.

Dunamis Power

The word dunamis is from the Greek and is used over 120 times in the New Testament alone. It is a word from which we derive the English: dynamite, dynamic and dynamo. Here is a Word from the Lord that speaks to this kind of power:

Do you not know who you have living inside of you? If you profess to be My disciples than the Holy Spirit dwells in you. He is the source of wisdom and power, dunamis power. Dynamite, explosive, dynamic power. You have reservoirs of untapped strength and power living within. The power to move mountains, overcome world systems and knock down walls of hatred, bitterness, unforgiveness, pride and every other sin that plagues the human race.

Yet my representatives here on earth, the Church, are losing a generation to the enemy who lures youth into darkness and My people into complacency. This need not be! My Holy Spirit is on the move to set the captives free, to break the chains of addiction, self absorption, and hopelessness. I have given you, My Church, My bride, the power that raised My Son from the dead. The dynamite power of the Holy Spirit to overcome death and darkness, the power to heal, the power to transform lives! Explode in prayer, worship and service that will loosen these bonds of the enemy.

Remember, you are at war with spiritual forces of darkness that are covering the earth. But as the darkness grows, so can the light shine brighter. Allow yourself to be filled with My power. Surrender all to Me. Serve Me with passion, "Your whole heart, your whole mind, and all your strength." Reach out to the lost and hurting. They are hungry, they are searching for something they do not know. Feed them with heavenly manna from on high. Show them the way to life. Condemn not, neither condone. Lead them to Me and show them the overcoming power that comes from a surrendered life. The dynamite power of the Holy Spirit will break the chains of darkness!

Do Not Fear Your Enemies

Do not be fearful of the evil that is befalling Christians. Know and trust that I see all the plans of the wicked and those who scheme against My people. As in the days of the Roman Emperors who tried to annihilate Christians, though they martyred them yet they could not kill Christianity, which later spread throughout the Roman Empire.

So it is today as always. I have given mankind a choice between good or evil. Man often chooses what is expedient for him. The other problem lies in deception, either by self or by others. I have made it simple and laid the plan of salvation through My Son, Jesus Christ. He is the way, the truth and the life.

Anyone who plots against Him or My people will come to naught. They may think highly of their ideas or ideals, but in the end they will be destroyed. Though I desire for all mankind to come to know My Son, not all choose My way. Those who choose the straight and narrow path will wind up in a broad place. Keep storing up good treasure in heaven, for one day you will reap an eternal reward.

Do not let the father of lies deceive you. Store up good treasure by the strength of the Holy Spirit and the good works He gives you to do. Walk in uprightness of character and heart by leaning on My Son and every word that proceeds from Us.
Focus your attention on what I am doing on the earth and not on what the enemy has accomplished. Understand that many have been deceived. Pray for your enemies that they may see truth. Do not fear them. Be the light to them.

A Weekly Word

While praying during this New Year's Day, the Lord gave me some very specific assignments,one of which was to write a Weekly Word on this blog. this is for all the Maratha's that have felt condemned:

"Martha, Martha I do not condemn you.You are like the disciple whom I called to feed the sheep. I call you to take what I have given you and to feed others.
I do not disapprove of you, but encourage you.If you want to feed the multitudes, then you must wait on Me like Mary. Sit at My feet and soak in My presence. Eat of the words of life I speak to you.Drink of the heavenly rain I pour out on you.

Many are troubled and confused as it was in My day. Give them heavenly food to feed their souls, for this is what they lack. You can only do that by quieting your own spirit, spending time with Me and listening to My Holy Spirit. This is what people are truly hungering for, Words of Life, not hunger games or gourmet meals.

Many today are the walking wounded. I call yo to bind up their wounds. I have given authority to My church to do this. Spend time with Me and experience My healing touch so you may touch others with My healing. Soak in My presence and in My spirit so you can be like a balm in Gilead, a healing presence in a perverse world. Spend time with Me, then go out among the poor and needy, the broken and fainthearted. They need what I have given you.

It may not seem much to you, like a few loaves of bread or a couple of fish, but I am in the multiplying business. When you surrender what yo have to Me I will multiply it and feed the multitudes.

New Year Light

This is an excerpt from my Work In Progress, I AM Calling

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind” (Luke 4:18).

A new year is upon you. Light has dawned and a warm wind of the Spirit is blowing. It is a gentle breeze, so you must stop to feel it. It is a year of reprieve and favor from the Lord. It is the Word My Son proclaimed, “The acceptable year of the Lord” (Isaiah 61:2). Enter into His favor and do the works My Son did. Not by might or by your own power, but by My Spirit you will be able to perform them. Let the Spirit breath upon you and quicken your mortal body and give you vision. Let Him set you free from the things that have tripped you up all your life, roadblocks like worry, fear, bitterness, indecision and lack of revelation. “Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint” (Prov. 29:18), but this doesn’t need to be your story. I am sending you My Holy Spirit. He will give you insight, wisdom and the strength to do My will.
