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.

What am I saying? Plainly, that you must work your faith like a muscle. Every day. Every chance you get. Whether in sunshine or in the storm you’ve got to pull from the deepest part of you the Holy Scriptures and believe them. Trust them and rely on them. He is faithful to see you through!

You’re weakness is made strong in Him.

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

I sang aloud a line from a new song from Mandisa, but then added two lines as I believe the Holy Spirit gave me the utterance for a particular sister in the Lord who is struggling with fear.

I’m just unfinished
Making it a rule
Gotta get through
I’m just unfinished

The Holy Spirit is speaking. You’re not healed and whole yet. You’re unfinished. You must rely on Him in your weakness. You can’t do it in your own strength. Make it your rule. Gotta get through. How? Knowing that He is perfectly in love with you and you are perfectly in love with Him. Perfect love casts out fear! He is gentle as a dove but His fire can override any demonic activity. Press in! Press through! Stay in the Word!

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18

I thank God for the opportunity to be His voice in the barren land where the hopeless roam looking for direction and a touch. This is my calling and how privileged I am to be His voice, hands and feet. In practical and biblical ways, I help others in the way the Holy Spirit leads me to direct their individual journey and life circumstances. I realize that each of His children are unique and that the ministry of Jesus Christ that He has entrusted to me is one-on-one and I am thankful for the fruit in each of their lives this month. They're making strides in surrendering and turning fully to the Lord. I am equally excited about my growth as well in realizing that I have been chosen, appointed and He has set my feet where they are. I will continue in all the Lord has put my hand to do knowing that where my feet land it matters not as long as I abide in Him. Looking forward to advancing the Kingdom of God—finding what He’s seeking and laboring in that which He wants to build!


"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.


If You’re Not Growing You’re Dying

I Wept

My heart is heavy and sorrowful with feeling both the sadness of the people in affliction and the mind of God concerning it. I wept for the victory of my brothers and sisters. “Lord, why isn’t the Word working in their lives? You are no respecter of persons.” I pressed in and inquired that and more. Then the tears flowed and God answered in that still small voice.

For years, I have wept for my children who are stubborn as mules and refuse by their own choice to mature in the faith. They are settled in keeping vigil at eating meat that’s ground up and milk that’s fresh. They have no patience, no stamina for the waiting of God’s plan or purpose. If it’s not happening now they’re moving on. They have forsaken treasure for fool’s gold. They have given way to the culture’s idea of success and freedom and forfeited their rights as sons and daughters of the Most High God. They have decided to live as beggars instead of living as they should be in prayer, fasting and dependent on God. They have traded in royalty for beggar’s clothes—and beg they shall.

In all the world, you find few who know how to enter and be patient for the miracles and wonders my Kingdom can bring, but those that do find that the journey of holding out is worthy, are far better off. They have peace that surpasses all understanding and they have the Word to comfort them in the meanwhile.

Tell them, my love and my Word are sufficient for them.


Worrier to Warrior

For so many years my family has had reason to worry upon worry and to no fault of their own. They had tough decisions faced with failed marriages and relationships with men, children to feed, forgotten dreams of their own and probably even a little lost.

I think back on if I struggled with worry and the honest answer is no. I’ve always been confident and assured of my abilities. That’s of course before the enemy came in and took charge on an unsuspecting day. It was devastating. He left me groveling on the floor while I begged God, “What is my testimony?” My foundation in Christ was weak, and that’s the beginning of it. My weakness was not being in the Word daily. I had attended a Bible study and even blogged about my faith frequently while my daughter was growing up, but in the end, it didn’t sustain me. I fell apart and she entered kindergarten early. I was a mess and the enemy wasn’t satisfied with just wreaking havoc on my spiritual disposition, no he was content to dole out ample amounts of fear, disillusionment, suicidal thoughts, insomnia, depression and more. It was the darkest time I have ever experienced. It was hell on earth for me—not exaggerating in the least.

Satan and his demons are always looking for the weaker ones and it doesn’t matter if you have a church membership either.

How about you? Are you flirting with the world instead of meditating on His Word day and night? If you are, I caution you to take inventory and rearrange your priorities before it’s too late. Recently, I spoke during a prophetic audio how the enemy is circling some in the Body of Christ. Yes, that’s true.  "He is seeking whom He may devour." (1 Peter 5:8)  Are you his next meal? He’s just waiting for a way in. Will you give it to him or will you heed the voice of the Lord and return to the Lord, fully? My prayer is that you do. And in the process, God will transform you, like He did me. Now that I have returned to the Lord after my sifting, I am without compromise, committed to growing spiritually and encouraging the Brethren. I am a warrior for Christ! Where my feet land, I declare the Good News with power, authority, and dominion. Oh, and the devil…he’s under my feet!

Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19

Let’s not be caught off guard. Jesus is coming back for a church without spot or wrinkle!

Just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. Ephesians 5:25-27


Why Have You Forsaken Me? {Warning!}

“You have forsaken Me,” says the LORD,
“You have gone backward.
Therefore I will stretch out My hand against you and destroy you;
I am weary of relenting!
Jeremiah 15:6 NKJV

“You have abandoned (rejected) Me,” says the LORD.
“You keep going backward.
Therefore I shall stretch out My hand against you and destroy you;
I am tired of delaying [your punishment]!
Jeremiah 15:6 AMP

The prophetic Word* as given to me, Rosemarie, His servant:

In the hour you know not of the thief will come to destroy. He will rob you of your little faith and leave you begging for mercy. He will destroy your family, finances and your future. Yet, you have decided to keep me in a box hidden away for only those {selective, chosen} to see, but in your quiet time you have done the unthinkable and have abandoned your teaching of the Gospel.
If I were standing in front of you, you would be convinced, but I tell you I have sent many with my truth to warn and lead you from the lies and still you have chosen to cling to pleasure. You have forsaken holiness and sound doctrine for a false teaching and your judgment is nigh. You have chosen to forsake the commandments to keep holy and separate. You have linked yourselves with the world and are now harlots. You have slept with the enemy and your due justice is nigh.
Why have you forsaken me? Why?
*find below an audio clip that continues God's message

I consider this to be a Word from the Lord and I publish it in obedience to the Spirit of God who instructs and guides me as He wills.

How many times will you pursue fame, fortune, and success and forsake the commandments? The Lord is asking questions. He’s also sending a warning.

If you’re on the fence, feeding on a soft gospel or false teaching, doing the unthinkable hiding in secret and showing only Jesus to those some of the time, God is aware and judgment is near.

Still, if you have breath left with your mind made up, return to the Lord before the thief is at your door. Don’t delay! This could be your last chance before it’s too late. God is asking that I do His bidding that you would not perish but have everlasting life. Run to the Lord!

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8

The Lord bless and keep all those who are returning to Him this season. May they find refreshing waters and peace that surpasses all understanding in His care as they read the Word of God and grow in the knowledge of Christ. Being lovers of God rather than lovers of the world!
