I Am An All Consuming Fire

I Am An All Consuming Fire

I am holy! I am holy! I am holy and am bring forth a holy people that will serve Me with their whole heart. They shall walk covered in My precious blood and their shall know their God. They shall do exploits in My name. They will not fear man but they will fear Me. From the least to the greatest they shall carry the banner of My love and be known as My disciples. They will not fear but they shall walk forward in faith together and love the name of Jesus. I will be their first thought in the morning and their last thought at night. They will love me and fear Me for they will know Me as I Am. I am a loving God but I am also an all consuming fire. I am God almighty and one to be reverenced. No longer will I accept known sin in My children but I am expecting that it be dealt with and put under My blood.

I died and rose again that you might walk a victorious walk, washed clean in My blood. A walk that is different than the world. You have been called out of this world. You are in it but not of it and must not act like the world. No longer will you speak as the world speaks for I will put coals of fire on your lips and you will know that you are a man of unclean lips. I will cleanse you My people and you will be cleansed and walk in holiness before Me. You will bear My name with dignity and honour and no longer will you fear to speak the whole counsel of the Lord. It is time to walk in love and to speak as one that bears the name of Jesus. You are in this world but separated from it. No more walking in this world but walking step in step with Me is the order of the day.

Rejoice that you are the called out ones. Rejoice that you bear My name and are worthy to suffer for My name. Indeed you will have persecution but it will purify you. As you go through persecution the thoughts and intents of your heart become very evident. When you suffer you cease to sin and I am bringing forth a people that will be pure through and through. Holiness is a must for those that walk with Me. Be you holy as I am Holy. I am an all consuming fire and you must let that fire burn up the dross in your lives. Be prepared for change for all that is not of Me is going to be burned up but My Son Jesus will be left burning in your heart. Let the revival fires begin to burn in your heart and ask Me to change you into the image of My Son for without holiness no man will see the Lord. Let the sanctifying work of My Spirit work in you, says the Lord.

29For our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:29

Watch and Pray!

Watch and Pray!

Last night and this morning I saw 11:11 on the clock. Meanings of 11:11 are 11 = incompleteness; disorganization; disintegration; disorder; lawlessness; disorder; need for apostolic fullness (11 apostles left after Judas hanged himself) as per Joni Ames Ministries

Each time I see 11:11 a heaviness comes over me and my heart is burdened to pray. We can see that this world is one of disorder and disintegration and that the church needs to come into His Divine order.

The Lord is speaking to His church to come aside with Him. We are living on the verge of something of much larger scale than we can handle without more of our God. The days of sitting on the fence are over and the Lord is saying that we need to choose this day whom we will serve. God is calling those that are His to come aside and wait on Him, too fast and pray and get your next instructions. You are living in dark days and some are not even aware of the darkness they are facing. It has entrenched many and many are living in clouds of depression and discouragement. The Lord wants to lift this from you and they only way is to sit at His feet, in the quiet place and allow Him to wash your heart clean in His blood.

Sin will not enter the Kingdom of God but when you repent He is faithful and just to forgive you your sin. Let Him work in your heart and life. Hear the voice of the Spirit entreating you to come ever closer. Shut out the distractions for they are many. Much of it seems good but I desire your undivided attention. Shut off the television is a must for many for you spend more time with it than you do with Me. Shutting off the computer for a time is a must for many. More hours are spent online reading about Me more than time with Me and I am jealous over you with a godly jealousy. Reach out to Me and I will reach out to you, says the Lord. Darkness is here and gross darkness is at the very door. Do you not see? Do you not hear? Do you not perceive what is going on in this world? Do you not yet discern the times and seasons?

Are you yet so very blind when I have given you the light of My Word? My light is shining in the darkness and you are one of the vessels I long to use to remove the darkness. Shine in the darkness beloved of mine. Shine in the darkness My beloved church. Shine in the darkness and be lights all over this lost world. Let your lights shine before men and glorify your Father in Heaven. I am knocking at the door of hearts. I am calling you! I am calling you! I am calling you to come aside till the calamity is past.

Even now evil men plan the demise of those that are called by My name. Evil men plan the demise of the Jewish people. Evil men plan with evil means to bring down many. Those of you that are watchman need to maintain your posts. You that are lax need to awaken to your calling and get on your watch. Many have been so distracted that they have missed what I have been saying, but you beloved are not so deceived. So...beloved arise and do your first works. It is always out of ministry to Me that ministry to others takes place.

I am sharpening the swords of My servants the prophets. I am sharpening the swords of those in apostolic ministry as well as the swords in the hands of those of like precious faith. Swords are being sharpened and this is why you have been going through such times of testing and great trial. Your swords are being sharpened that you might lead others in their darkest hour for it is yet ahead. There are those that need to be helped and you will go and bring them in. Time with Me is time well spent and will bear fruit. Time with Me is needed, to be prepared for the onslaught that will come. It will come in a night and last for an extended period of time. Be prepared in My Word. Prepare the way of the Lord and make the crooked places straight. Prepare, beloved of Mine prepare in the Word and prayer and let intercession be your passion for indeed the hour is late and the day of the Lord is at hand.

Behold I come quickly. Behold I come. Do your first works for behold I come quickly.

Cloud by Day, Fire by Night

Cloud by Day, Fire by Night

17Then it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, “Lest perhaps the people change their minds when they see war, and return to Egypt.” 18 So God led the people around by way of the wilderness of the Red Sea. Exodus 13:17-18 (NKJV)

We can but stand in awe of the Lord when we see how the Lord led the Israelites. They were armed for battle yet God knew their hearts and that they might still change their minds and go back into bondage. He chose to lead them out instead, through the desert. We have heard that it was only an eleven day journey and that their time in the wilderness would have been shorter except for their disobedience. Yet we see here that the Lord knew they could change their minds and was preventing it happening.

Be glad you have a loving heavenly Father that knows your heart. He knows just how much you can handle and we are told that with the temptation He will make a way of escape that you are able to handle it. Even when you are in the desert, see that the Lord is with you and that He promises He will never forsake or leave you.

A pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night led the Israelites. Perhaps you are going through a desert experience in your life, needing direction and would love to have a cloud by day and fire by night to lead you. smile. Rest assured, you are not alone for He has left His Holy Spirit to lead you.

16And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever 17The Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive (welcome, take to its heart), because it does not see Him or know and recognize Him. But you know and recognize Him, for He lives with you [constantly] and will be in you. John 14:16-17 (AMP)

As the Lord led the Israelites by pillar of cloud and pillar of fire He will lead you, O you of little faith. The same fire of His spirit is with you today. A wilderness experience is never wasted when we love the Lord and it could even keep you from going back into bondage. There are invaluable lessons learned during this time. Instead allow the Lord to turn this time in your life into a rich time with Him knowing that it is for a little while and that your lessons learned in the wilderness can be stepping stones to future ministry.
