Try To Remember

Try to Remember

May 29th, 2012

Tonight as I was listening to some Graham Cooke talks, after few hours, I heard again, a song that came into my head earlier in the day. So I knew God was bringing it up, as it’s not one I’d normally be singing. by the Sandpipers -audio

"Try To Remember"

Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh, so mellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain was yellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow,
Try to remember and if you remember then follow.

Try to remember when life was so tender
That no one wept except the willow.
Try to remember when life was so tender that
Dreams were kept beside your pillow.
Try to remember when life was so tender that
Love was an ember about to billow.
Try to remember and if you remember then follow.

Deep in December it's nice to remember
Altho you know the snow will follow.
Deep in December it's nice to remember
Without the hurt the heart is hollow.
Deep in December it's nice to remember
The fire of September that made us mellow.
Deep in December our hearts should remember and follow.

I looked up the lyrics and song, and then waited on the Lord…

As I looked up scriptures, I felt there were two applications. One was the call of the Bridegroom to His very tired and worn bride to remember what He has done for us, and to come to Him again in worship, and reestablish praise in our hearts, offering a sacrifice of praise to overcome any heaviness or oppression that has been trying to overtake us, or any sense of dread…

The second was that events are on the horizon, that will take away our remembrance of mellow days, and we must stay our hearts on Him, and always remember His lovingkindnesses and things He has done for us in the midst of turmoil, that we might have PEACE in the midst of tribulations.

There will be great victories, but there will also be great challenges. We must always remember the love of the Lord, and like David encouraged himself in the Lord, we need to do the same. Some of us have gotten SO many words, more than those in scripture, due to the better covenant of being filled with Holy Spirit such that we hear so much more. And we need to keep perspective when times get much harder for those around us whom we need to encourage.

Then again, I went out to the car tonight, as I need to take it in for a recall thing and again that song came to me. Sometimes it’s a wait as you mull over things before the Lord speaks.

“ I AM ARRESTING, I AM ARRESTING, I AM ARRESTING, all that has come against you to limit My ministry through you. It is not coming by your striving. It’s not coming by being good enough for ME. I KNOW what has hindered you ! I KNOW what the enemy has done to try to make you feel you’ll be disqualified, or unable to complete what I have in store for you.

I KNEW from the beginning the choices My beloveds would make. I KNEW

The plan I had for you and I am not a man that I should lie, nor a son of man, that I should change My mind.

I am a good FATHER Who gives good gifts to His children. You feel you’ve not gotten good gifts from me sometimes, because of all that has surrounded you. But you have PERSEVERED through it all and that is what I was looking for. I was looking for WARRIORS that won’t give up, who will continue to trust in ME, despite circumstances around them. Who will still be woo’d into My presence, and willing to suffer for My name’s sake.

Have you not known it says, Have you not heard, the Lord God never gets tired or weary. I have not given up on you. I see everything, and I have made the decision. RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL SPRING FORTH ! RIGHTNESS will be established in the lives of the elect and many of those who seem outside the reach of mercy will come when My glory so increases that just your presence will bring healing and deliverance.

You already see the manifesting in others as you’re around them. Haven’t you seen it beloveds ? THAT is why some respond as they do to you. IT IRKS THE SPIRITS IN THEM that you carry ME inside you. But it is nothing yet, compared to the coming Wind. [ unction to fight, hands boxing came upon me when I wrote this ] Like a battle being waged. I AM WARRING ! I AM FOR you and not against you. But I have had a TIMING that all would be ready.

Can you see how many are now speaking the same ? My body is coming to more maturity and they will be speaking the same things, [those that are willing to still follow ME ]

I am giving you a new SONG in your heart. I am speaking to My Bride to come aside and spend more time with ME, that you might really be filled more with ME. But the day is at hand for TRANSFORMATIONS and as it unfolds, so much more will be given you, that your heart will REJOICE with song, and you will have a new bounce in your step, and a new vitality, you haven’t felt for a very long time, some of you, who have suffered so much for me.

So many have paid a great price for the power that will be poured out. HEALING is at the door beloveds, and as I heal you, I will fill you with My LOVE, that is so transforming, that GREAT GRACE will be poured in, and you will experience such lightness, such freedom, you’ve not known. Laughter will fill your mouth, and tears will fill your eyes due to the long period of gestation which is now bringing forth the SONS and Daughters of GLORY !


Declare the TRUTH outloud to the enemy ! DECLARE IT ! PRAISE ME in the Spirit of Holiness, and do not fear anything that lies ahead, for I AM WITH YOU and will be, through everything. “

Then I heard an old, old song: THE BELLS ARE RINGING FOR ME AND MY GAL !

TRUTH will overcome the liar ! Kindness and Love will overcome all evil that tries to stand against you. The wicked will TREMBLE at what I do, for they

Have never seen such manifestations of My glory!! And they will no longer mock on My holy mountain ! My sanctuary will no longer be filled with merchants. Trembling will take hold of the sinners. They will fear when the Spirit of the fear of the LORD hits them. And out of the mouths of babes and infants I have ordained praise, so many little ones, and young ones will prophesy, and do miracles at MY DIRECTION without someone training them, because I WILL BE THEIR TEACHER ! And they will know ME, and see ME, and talk to angels. DECLARE IT NOW, for it springs forth in this season beloveds.

It is time for WAR. SPEAK the TRUTH, and I will establish it !


Compassion will not be mocked any longer. No longer will my intercessors with compassionate hearts be held back or tormented by the jealousy in the church, for when they speak the truth in love and compassion, all hell will tremble and religious spirits will flee. ONLY step out ONLY as I tell you to step out. Speak only as I lead you to speak. Speak in love, and not in the pride of I know it better, or I would never have done that. Without My grace having guided you, you don’t know what you would have done !

Kings I said, will come to the brightness of your rising ! ARISE and SHINE as I make you to shine like the stars in the heavens, as I pour out My glory in you ! TURN your heart to ANTICIPATE THIS! Lay down all bitterness and strife, all turmoil and fears. PUT AWAY ALL JEALOUSY! Where envy and self seeking is, every sort of evil is. When I finish your preparations no one will ever go back to these things. You will be changed, no longer bound by earthly things or the demons.

I will always love you. I will not grow tired of talking to you or answering your questions. I AM A GOOD FATHER. TRUST ME and not the world systems.

For EVERY SYSTEM WILL FAIL. There is an iceberg for every titanic system of men. I am making you into My lifeboats ! Turn to ME in trust. TURN to ME for all you need. If you can’t store food, will you go hungry when I have promised that like the Israelites in the desert, I can pour down manna ? I will pour down manna that heals and keeps you strong. Ask and it shall be given you, no matter the circumstance, I AM STRONGER than anything that can come against you. What is the loss of earthly things, when I have said, that even the lily of the fields are arrayed more beautifully than Solomon ? Can I not do anything with the clay I am molding ? Surely My arm is not too short to save ! Life consists of more than food and drink.

I can provide water when there is drought or rationing. I CAN DO IT.

I created the heavens and the earth with a WORD!”
