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?

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!
