Come To Me and Rest

Often, we are sure of our destiny in the Lord, we know it like we know our own name. It’s ingrained in our spirit-man and it motivates us in looking for opportunities to share in His goodness because we know His truth. Yet, life can shake us to the inner core and bring us to our knees. Life’s pain and struggles can become the enemy’s foothold if we’re not careful and willing to reach out for godly advice. Such private struggles we don’t share with everyone. Still, God is there to guide us through with His scripture and His ministers to comfort and assure us in continuing the journey.

God Calling {Devotional}

The Rest of God
I lead you. The way is clear. Go forward unafraid. I am beside you. Listen, listen, listen to My Voice. My Hand is controlling all. Remember that I can work through you better when you are at rest. Go very slowly, very quietly from one duty to the next – taking the time to rest and pray between. Do not be too busy. Take all in order as I say. The Rest of God is in a realm beyond all man’s activities. Venture there often, and you will indeed find Peace and Joy. All work that results from resting with God is miracle-work. Claim the power to work miracles, both of you. Know that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Nay, more, know that you can do all things through Christ who rests you.
And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse … and his rest shall be glorious. 
Isaiah 11:10

Give Him your whole heart, study the Word and rest with God. Trust Him for your miracle work!

2 Corinthians 9:8 Amplified Bible (AMP)
And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity.

In Christ, we have what we need, want and desire. He fulfills. He satisfies. He gives us life.

I apologize for the voice recording that unfortunately was a recording of a recording because of technical difficulty. I thank God that this Word has gone forth regardless of the opposition and hours spent in finding a solution so that the hearer might be changed and set free!

Wait on The Promise

With Abraham faith, I too have gazed at the stars with a promise and waited. Can you?

For with God nothing [is or ever] shall be impossible.
Luke 1:37 AMP

Like a spouse who comes up from behind you with a surprising kiss while you’re watching the Food Network and munching on Veggie Straws, the Holy Spirit did just that with a message. It was an unexpected visit.

The Rivers of Living Water are continually flowing and at any moment the Lord can speak through me. My mind wandered to a particular person and situation, and I thought, "It’s not a quick fix."

In the Kingdom of God, we can’t put in our request and expect things to turn around in a weekend. There’s no special curing process in the Spirit with an expected time for results. There’s no secret 7-step method for what we’re looking for. Although we can be a Change Agent -- implementing godly character with healthy boundaries -- to help ease the frustration for both ourselves and others. There are countless variables with every circumstance, but the keys to unlock our situation lie in the search with all our heart to be found in the Word and by the revelation of the Holy Spirit. You can even gain #FaithHopeCourage on your journey with the help of several resources and people. But enough about that. I want to share the heart of God with you now to give you a boost and point the way, especially for those who are waiting and weary.

The Scripture, “with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day,” (2 Peter 3:8) was recalled from the sacred part of my soul and rang true in my spirit for this craving of a quick fix. We can’t rush the process. As I wept in the Truth then, I weep again writing.

Wait on the promise.  
Read it for yourself!

We must dig deep in our cistern of faith to pull from it ample amounts of #FaithHopeCouarge, and believe with all our hearts in what God has spoken to us and over us that we may see the “goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.” (Psalm 27:13) Hold on my Brothers and Sisters, and wait on the promise!

I have a few significant testimonies of God’s goodness in my own life and I have also witnessed it in the lives of others. Yet, my heart knows there is more, much more. Be diligent and study the Word. Be obedient and drink from the Cup of the Lord daily. You’ll find that as you practice these things they will become good habits that are life, even unto your bones. You’ll look forward to pleasing God meanwhile cultivating in the Spirit and gaining ground with the promise ever closer, though maybe on Heaven’s timetable and not your own.

For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time 
It hurries toward the goal [of fulfillment]; it will not fail. 
Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it, 
Because it will certainly come; it will not delay. 
Habakkuk 2:3 AMP


The Devil is a Liar: MLM Recruiting

If you abide in My word [continually obeying My teachings and living in accordance with them, then] you are truly My disciples. John 8:31 AMP

What does it mean that “the truth will set you free” (John 8:32) True disciples will know the truth. More than that, their eyes are opened to a greater understanding of the truth.
The devil replicates the Divine with his signature twist of perversion. Not perversion sexually regarding this topic, but yes, he has done that as well.

I want to speak to you about how the devil has given the world a divine model in scripture and perverted it with the intent to be millionaires. Many have been involved either in both purchasing or as a distributor/sponsor in Multi Level Marketing or know someone who has or perhaps still is.

Recently, I watched a documentary Betting on Zero*. An in-depth investigation of Herbalife with "controversial hedge fund titan," billion dollar investor Bill Ackman exposing the company's fraudulent practices for a gain of money, which turns out is not as bad it sounds.
Amazon Reviewer: This might be the best Wall Street movie ever made, but it's more than that. It's a movie about the American Dream, what people will do for "30 pieces of silver," and what the right measuring stick for success really is.
Interesting, minutes into the explaining of a pyramid scheme the Holy Spirit revealed a Truth. This is a perversion of the Divine -- disciples making disciples -- a duplication -- all the while God the Father (The Ultimate Upline) getting all the glory.
The Divine Rise of Multilevel Marketing (November 23, 2015) Christianity Today Magazine - Similarly, personal-finance expert Dave Ramsey tells his listeners that, while many MLM companies are legitimate businesses, they take a lot of work. At root, Ramsey in a video recording for his radio show, MLM success is about recruiting and retaining a sales team, not selling products. “You need to understand the business you’re in,” he said. “And the business you’re in is recruiting.”


I'm Just Unfinished

Why do we think as a Believers we can leave God on the sidelines and only call Him in for Special Teams—when we’re in deep doo-doo? The circumstances are against us and the odds of victory look slim to nothing. It stinks, and our playbook is not helping at all. There’s no strategy or quick remedy to get us in a forwarding motion. We’re surrounded by the opposing force and their presence is evident. We can’t escape. Or can we?

The strength you’re needing to fight the enemy, close doors, and open others begins with growth in the knowledge of Christ. You can’t be a winner overcoming spiritual battles unless you know who you are and whose you are. And that all is learned and cultivated in the Spirit by reading God’s Word daily.

A multi-million dollar NFL player doesn’t become that overnight. He’s a work-in-progress. He’s a success story that has put in countless years of training and being coached to be the best on the field and off it. His physical abilities far exceed the average Joe and his character shaped by discipline and motivation to win. He’s unstoppable on the field and his confidence lies in his abilities, and hopefully his faith in God as well.


"I Am Coming Back with a Vengeance!"

I'm posting this with confidence that He who speaks in the still small voice as written in 1 Kings 19 with Elijah the prophet, still speaks, and it has been confirmed. This is a weighty message and one that every reader should heed unless you are capable of withstanding the Lord's vengeance in your own strength. With the release of any Word of prophecy, I yield to the Spirit of God on timing and how it's to be shared. You'll note that I'm starting with the most current, which leads up to the study in Holy Scriptures where you'll find it supported.

Tell them that I’m releasing a spirit in the land and I will reckon every man unto myself. You are either for me or against me.
April 7, 2017

Considering the critical news in Syria this past week I believe this Word should be published and shared.

I received an answer from the Lord on March 17. But, before that consider this: If our land experiences the consequences of our sinful ways, you’ll want to be safe in the secret sacred place with Jesus. Return to Him before it’s too late! God is pouring out His wrath and being saved and sanctified is your only hope in these Last Days before the second coming of Christ.

April 6, 2017

I interceded in the Spirit and God spoke in the prophetic.
He will reckon every man unto Himself.
If we're truly His, we'll be counted. There's coming a time of separating. Whose are you? We must be rooted and grounded in Christ and growing in Him. Otherwise, we are already cursed (fig tree). No time for being half in.

The wind and rain will come, but those who cling to the Lord will be rooted in Christ.

Don't fear, but press in. Abide in Him!

March 17, 2017

In February, I knelt with the unction of the Holy Spirit with hands lifted and open. Then God spoke and gave me the scrolls, which I believe to be the Word of God with revelation.

It’s important that I preface first and foremost what we as Body of Christ do from here and why this message. Focus on the HOPE in GLORY that was once preached and received by you. Regardless of your stance currently, I believe if you’re reading this God has a plan to restore you to the faith and from there you will strengthen the brethren. Yes, you will return to the Lord! So why is God speaking such gloom and doom here while others are witnessing the warm and fuzzy side of God? I’m wondering that too, but God is adding and building here. There’s no agenda or goal outside of pleasing the Lord at Cup of Goodness or in my daily ministry. If God is speaking I will listen, eat His Words in the Holy Scriptures and release it. And my heart rejoices gladly in doing it!

This week I inquired of the Lord when He returns. He answered me.

I am coming back with a vengeance. I will release a spirit in the land because many call me Lord but do not do the things I say.
