Prepared for This Day
“I pray not that thou should take them out of the world, but that thou should keep them from the evil.”
Keep them from the evil, that they may be salt and light in a world of darkness; for the conversion of sinners and comfort of saints; keep them from the dominion of sin and its affects. Evil is very abhorrent, pernicious and powerful. We are to be in the world but not of the world. The protection of JESUS is not being exempt from attack & temptation, but freedom from the permanent influence of it. Keeping us from the evil, the apostasy, giving such grace to endure all trials & tribulations and being sustained by Our Father through it all, not succumbing to the rage, hatred and anger of the age (Matt. 6:13), being preserved from all atmospheric pressure surrounding this evil time that the witness of HIS salvation may prove true.
The nature of protection is clear, not to be removed from attack, persecution & temptation, but freedom from its permanent influence.
When a storm is approaching, we prepare. Here in Texas, we bring in lawn furniture and anything that might be tossed about by the strong winds and rain. We secure the premises around our homes. We go to the grocery store and bring home water to drink, foods that can sustain us should the power go out, batteries for flashlights and emergency radios, we make sure our cell phones are fully charged and fill our vehicles with gas in anticipation of evacuation if needed. We gather our candles and emergency items and place them where they are easily accessed.
These things we do in the natural…
What do we need to do in The Spirit?
Precious Ones STORMS are approaching. Are you prepared? Have you spent the time to enquire of GOD what you have need of? Are you and The Father on a first name basis? It’s not enough to Know of GOD or to Know GOD; does GOD Know You? (Matthew 7:22-23; Luke 13:27) Have we used GOD’S Word to build our Kingdom, our following, our reputation, our fortunes? Or for our love of GOD have we sought to co-labor with HIM in HIS pasture (world) reaching out to HIS Beloved Sheep (children), sharing our testimonies our witness? Our motives are under GOD’S inspection, and from HIS Light we cannot hide. Have you been born again, giving you access by your born-again spirit to the things of GOD? HIS Heart is reaching out to you, seeking to bring you into HIS Place of Safety. You are greatly loved and sought after, JESUS is preparing your place in The Father’s house, it’s up to us to receive the invitation and RSVP. Have we hidden GOD’S Word in our heart that we might not sin against HIM? Have we studied and stored the Truth of HIS WORD to keep us from the distortion and false innuendos of today’s society? Have we been filled with HIS SPIRIT (baptized in The HOLY SPIRIT)? Do we fast and pray, do we listen, hear and obey?
“Search me O GOD, and know my heart: try me and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
“Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk in it, Whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.”
What does it take to soften a heart?
To thine own script be true
Christian I’m talking to you
Gifts HE has placed inside
From HIS chastening do not hide
For in the chastening you come to know
Life’s true ebb and flow
For some the drought has been long
The wait (weight) has stolen your song
Pick up your tune, bear your instrument
It’s time for praise
In the midst of this pandemic
To thee O Lord we raise
Our life is not made up of what we see
But of the You in ME
Those to whom the song belongs
in the distance I hear the sound
Of YOUR Rain (REIGN) falling
Arise my weary ones to the task
Your strength is being renewed
For this fight, be true
The believing part is up to you
BODY, bone to HIS bone come
The shaking has begun
The shaking of doctrines of man
Will fall at MY Command
To MY WORD be True, it is what made you
Seek MY FACE and not MY hand
For truly you need to hear what I will say
Words of LIFE to obey
In this world of troubled times
Arise and be mine
Gross darkness will be deep
Wake Up no time to sleep
Tis MY WORD that will see you through
Evidence of ME in You
Deposits to be made
For in this hour you must withdraw
And see the writing on the wall
Checks in your spirit, you must prove
For the evil of the day will MY Words sway
Do not allow the lies to sweep you away.
May The Word of The LORD dwell in you richly, feeding your soul and encouraging your Spirit.
