Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time. Revelation 12:12.
For here we do not have a lasting city, but we are seeking the city which is to come. Hebrews 13:14.
But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into. You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect. Luke 12:39-40
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
Awake to the times. The time of merit is now. The devil knows his time is short, so why don’t you know the signs of the times? All will be well for believers, but what is so praiseworthy when you do good in the perfect world to come? Now is the time you have to choose the good over the evil. The time is at hand, so repent and do the good works you were meant to do. Now is not the time to sue your brothers in court. That will be cut short. It is time to be busy gathering your reward. For only the souls you have saved, including your own, will get you praises before the Throne.
Now is the time, what are you doing with this life? Causing envy, evil and strife? Awake to righteousness and work for the light. It is time to let the Me make things right. Work for the Kingdom, not for earthly gain. That is so much dust, but the Kingdom will remain. All things will be shaken and what is not of Me will fall. And how great will be the crash be for those not firmly on the cornerstone.
For here you do not have a lasting city but are seeking the city which is to come. That means you do not get embroiled in the cares and skirmishes of the world, you can travel in a bubble over the snares if you are resting in Me and seeking My Kingdom above the Babylonian system of the earth.
How do you stay out of the cares and lusts of the world? Through Jesus. Continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to Me, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to My name for so great a salvation and deliverance. And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices I am pleased. I anointed Jesus with My Spirit and power so that He went about doing good and healing all oppressed by the devil. And you are to partner with Him as His body and do the works He did and greater. How? Anything you ask in His Name, He will do! And He will do it in, with and through you! Attach to the vine and bear fruit by drawing on His life in you. Grace.
Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for to rebel and give grief by seeking to raise yourself above them would be unprofitable for you. Promotion is from Me.
Pray for those who preach My Word that they declare My Word boldly and may conduct themselves honorably in all things. And pray that you yourself will not fall into temptation, for the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak and these are perilous times.
Trust in Me and do not fret over things. I am the God of peace and you have a Covenant of peace with Me in Jesus. I am He who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal Covenant, even Jesus your Lord, to be with you always, and I will surely finish the good work I began in you. I will equip you in every good thing to do My will, working in you that which is pleasing in My sight, through Jesus Christ, whom I have exalted in glory forever and ever. And you with Him, so say “Amen” to that.
It is time to grow up. You should not be spending your days standing idly by and acting like busy bodies and scandal spreaders. Watch your words and watch your thoughts. Be sure that you are centered on what is really of importance in the Kingdom. And what is My desire? That all men be saved and come to know the truth. That people dwell together as one in love and forgive one another as I have forgiven you in Christ. You should not take offense so quickly and snap back every time you feel someone has not been kind to you.
Know that I am taking care of you and you will be much more relaxed and joyful. I have your best interests at heart and I want to give you a full reward. I desire above all else that you prosper and be in good health even as your soul prospers. It gives Me great joy to see you walking in the truth because I know the truth will set you free to be the YOU that you want to be, the YOU that I made you to be. And that is an awesome and amazing you filled with diving life and power. You do not even come close to knowing the love I have for you and how much I want you to succeed and prosper. David sang that My love towered above the heavens and was deeper than the deepest depths of the sea. Jesus told you that I sent Him and He told you He came to bring you LIFE IN ABUNDANCE, until it overflows. And He gave you His joy, that your joy might be FULL! You are complete in Him. He emptied Himself and became poor so that you could become rich by His poverty. All He had and has is yours. And that is everything. You are with Me always and ALL I have is yours in Jesus.
Do you still not understand? How can you fear when you have the Most High God living inside you by My Spirit in you? And I pour My love into your heart through My gift to you of the Holy Spirit and perfect love casts out fear. Do not tolerate it. Lean on Me till you know the protection, strength, and amazing provision of My love. Dare to cast all your cares on Me and be care free and your heart will overflow with amazement at what begins to take place in your life. All things will begin to work together for your good, even your enemies will be fighting to get you the results you have desired in your heart. It will take your breath away in awe filled wonder.
Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the hip. Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come. Isaiah 60:4-5. Arise, shine, for your light has come, and My glory rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but My glory rises upon you and appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. Isaiah 601-3.
It is time to arise and shine. Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of the Light without fault in a warped and crooked generation. Then you will shine among them like bright lights as you hold firmly to and offer them the Word of life. All creation is waiting for the revelation of My children.
Rebuke sickness, plagues and disaster! Speak shalom to all creation. Jesus spoke shalom to those far and near. Cover the world with My protection, with the Blood of My Son. Guard your hearts and speak My Words and all will be well with you.
I love you. Be busy about Kingdom business and your life will be happy. It is good when I find you busy on your return. I am preparing a place for you and Jesus shall come and take you there with Him. And you know that means now, yes, today, as well as for eternity. Behold, now is the acceptable time, behold, now is the day of salvation!
Be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps lit. Be like men who are waiting for their master when he returns from the wedding feast, so that they may immediately open the door to him when he comes and knocks. Blessed are those servants whom the master will find on the alert when he comes; truly I say to you, that he will gird himself to serve, and have them recline at the table, and will come up and wait on them. Whether he comes in the second watch, or even in the third, and finds them so, blessed are those servants.
But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into. You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect.”
Peter said, “Lord, are You addressing this parable to us, or to everyone else as well?” And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and sensible steward, whom his master will put in charge of his servants, to give them their rations at the proper time? Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes. Truly I say to you that he will put him in charge of all his possessions. But if that slave says in his heart, ‘My master will be a long time in coming,’ and begins to beat the slaves, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk; the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will cut him in pieces, and assign him a place with the unbelievers. And that slave who knew his master’s will and did not get ready or act in accord with his will, will receive many lashes, but the one who did not know it, and committed deeds worthy of a flogging, will receive but few. From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more. Luke 12:35-48.
