10/14/16 Words of Power
“Are you in the league of the know everything, easily offended? Are you complacent with your life and your spiritual walk? Have you shaken off the many times that I have come to you with My Word through chosen vessels? Get ready to have your world and your life revealed to you for what it really is. I am about to show you how I see your use of My resources and My Word in you. You will soon be given an opportunity to make My choices, because My Spirit is about to move. My remnant is about to be called forth in power. Those, who have submitted to the intense training of My crucified life, are about to be anointed to call forth truth into the lives in My church. They will reveal My heart and My observations because they have been with Me.
"Many who call themselves Mine will be deeply offended by the words of power that come to them through humble warriors of My cause. Many will attempt to shake off the conviction that offends their flesh, but will find that it is Me Who is calling them to account. They will hate their brothers and sisters in their hearts, and will attempt to nullify those who bring forth My truth— those they have considered of no account for many years. However, make-believe, self-serving Christianity is about to be revealed as the stench that it is to Me.
"My true people have been in training to rise above the foolishness that has been purported to be My ways for far too long. Now they will be My voice to call out anyone who will listen and change his or her ways. Accusing words and false judgments will not affect My well-trained ones. They will go forth undaunted by lifeless condemnation.
"To My remnant in training: Come into My presence to hear My words of love, intended for those I plan to move away from an attitude of complacency. Receive My boldness for the work I am giving you to do.”
Jeremiah 15:19 AMP
Therefore thus says the Lord [to Jeremiah]: If you return [and give up this mistaken tone ofdistrust and despair], then I will give you again a settled place of quiet and safety, and you will be My minister; and if you separate the precious from the vile [cleansing your own heart from unworthy and unwarranted suspicions concerning God’s faithfulness], you shall be My mouthpiece…
Acts 4:29-31 NIV
29) “Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness.
30) Stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
31) After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.
If you are at all discerning, you will have noticed the changing tides of the Lord’s church in recent years. For many who are listening to the Lord, what once was is no longer acceptable. What once worked now falls flat on the ground, ineffective. The undiscerning scramble to the next program, trying to find a way to keep going. Those who hear are seeking more of Jesus.
God will always have a people who bring His church back to center. He always raises up a remnant to bring forth truth in a system of half-truths and traditions. Do not make the mistake that some make when strong words of truth come to the church.
Some see chastisement and correction as separation and division. I am convinced that soon strong correction will come to the church from within the church. It will not be infighting; it will be the power of God moving His people back on the path of true Christian living. The call will be one to holiness, a crucified life, and complete submission to the Lordship of Jesus. It will be a call without compromise from a people without compromise in their own lives. Some will listen. Others will scorn. The call, however, will be of God and endued with His presence, coming from those who have been in training with Him.
Create in me a clean heart, Lord,
