Is It Too Late for Revival?

     Revival happens when people's hearts are stirred towards God. In America today (and maybe worldwide, I don't know) there is a poverty towards the things of God; a fog that has covered the eyes and ears of people; a baseness or a heaping on of the lusts of the flesh or self, and a focus on the natural, material, and soulish realm.
     The ascendency (deepening or advancing)  in Christ (growth in Him and in apprehending the things of His Kingdom) is only happening in those who are continuing to seek Him daily. "Few there be that find it" (the narrow road that leads to life) and "those who endure to the end" are the ones in this time who have laid down all to follow Him in a real way. These are going against the tide and can only remain strong and steadfast by His Spirit in them in order to resist temptation to "go with the flow" of the world and those around them.
     Let's pray for each other; our brothers and sisters (those who do the Will of the Father), who feel alone at times, that they would not become weak in well-doing, but would rely totally on Christ in them to keep them from falling. Even so, Come Lord Jesus, Come.

DO NOT ENTER

     False doctrines come with a seducing spirit attached to them which appeals to our flesh; what it wants to be thrilled, but certainly not killed. In other words the focus is usually on what the sin nature desires, whereas true doctrines contain what God desires and of us yielding to those.
     Examples of these doctrines encompass the "name it and claim it/prosperity/speak it and it will happen or not happen" belief system. How do we avoid exposure to these traps the enemy is behind?
     If He is growing in us, as we die daily, by deferring our own selfish desires and demands to His Will, we are better able to detect the truth from a lie; the clean from the unclean.
     There have been situations in my own life when He has spoken in my spirit, to forewarn me of impending danger of false, demonic doctrines that are being taught and propagated. These doctrines have taken the people by storm as if they were swept off their feet, which they indeed have been. That is what a seducing spirit does; it's like a drug that appeals to the flesh, making it feel good, while blinding reality (God's truth, in this case) from view.
     God once spoke to me about a book: "Don't even think about reading it. It's poison." If I had not listened and gone ahead and read it, it would have been the spiritual equivalent of trying heroin just one time. Since that time, I've seen so many addicted to this doctrine, unable to disannul the covenant of death, because they've made lies their refuge.
     We've got to learn to listen and obey, and He will tell us where danger is before we become infected with these arsenic-laced doctrines. It's comforting to know that when He nudges our spirits, or even speaks loudly to us, if we've been yielding to His Will all along and growing in Him, we will hear His loving guidance and be protected from harm as we obey. "DO NOT ENTER" from the Lord is not to be played with, especially in these last days, when demonic doctrines run rampant.

The Prophecy of Timothy is Being Fulfilled Today

     "For the time will come when they will not put up with sound doctrine, but having itching ears, will accumulate to themselves teachers who harmonize with their carnal cravings. They will turn away from hearing the truth and turn aside to fiction." 2 Tim. 4:3.


   I see this happening. People I know and love, who once heard the truth, are now turning aside to fiction (or lies) because of their carnal cravings. They have sought out teachers who are telling them what they want to hear, and they will no longer put up with sound doctrine. Although, I believed this would happen, as God said it would, I never thought it would happen in my world.  I am deeply grieved.


"Though none go with me, still I must follow. No turning back. No turning back."

Growing in the Spirit

     What He speaks into our spirits, at times, seems contradictory to what His written Word says, because we try and reconcile the two with our carnal minds, therefore creating a perceived dilemma, when there is not dilemma if we receive it by faith, trusting that "in Him" there are not fractions; only wholeness. Knowing and believing that, we can be at peace in our spirits and "ignore" carnalities' longing to have everything explained or understood through it's filters.
     "Faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things unseen." Our carnal mind cannot see or understand these things, because they are spiritually discerned, but when faith arises,then we see by relying on the reality of who He is, and in Him, all perceived dilemmas are laid to rest (if we let go) and our carnal minds are quieted and defeated. Simply stated, it could be said that faith in Him heals our mind's unrest.

But For the Grace of God, Go I

     Everything we think, do, say or "choose" that is in line with God's will is undergirded by God Himself, even believing in Him. Anything less is our own strength (which will ultimately fail) attempting to sustain us, and is self-exalting.
Rev. 5:13-"May the blessing, the honor, the glory, and the dominion be to Him and to the Lamb for all eternity."

Offer No Resistance

     As we die to self, with the result of becoming "one with Christ" something mysteriously miraculous happens. We begin to no longer operate as separate from Him, but it's as if He becomes like a rudder inside of us turning us this way and then that way. In the past we had conversations asking Him what to do, and then we'd do it, but overtime as we continue to let our flesh be killed, He begins to move through us in certain directions, thoughts, or ways. He is taking dominion. Resurrection!!!! He comes alive in us, and gets His desire of living His life through His many membered Body. Nevertheless, not I but Christ!!
