A Word in Season: Desert Exodus

“So many of my people are lost in self-pity. They are bound and trapped, unable to come out of their pain and inward-looking misery. I want them to come to Me. Turn their eyes from their hurting hearts and look to Me. Only My Love can heal them and set them free.

Now is the time for the people of Singapore to arise and shine, for I am doing great things in the land. I need my people to stand up and be strong. I need them to throw off the shackles and be free to undertake the tremendous mission that I am releasing even now. They need to break through their own natural defenses. Only they can choose to do so.

My people, why do you complain and say, “My way is hidden from the Lord; my cause is disregarded by my God”? Do you not know? Have you not heard? I AM the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. I will not grow tired or weary, and My understanding no one can fathom. I give strength to the weary and increase the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in Me will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

These are days of great darkness and trials, and I know that many of my children have been hurt. I know that they are buffeted by waves and storms that have left them weary and discouraged. Come to Me and you will be safe. I will never let you go. But you have to choose. Choose Me, don’t push me away and shut me out with your own defenses.

Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most of my people will grow cold. The wickedness all around you can cause you to be hurt, afraid, disappointed, angry and confused. These emotions, if allowed to linger in your heart, will cause your heart to grow cold even to Me.

Beware that bitterness does not take root in your heart. But let My love fill you, because Love conquers all. Let Me satisfy your heart. Let Me be everything that you need. In these times of turbulence, I am the only unshakable constant.

Do not condemn yourself – you are only able to love to the measure that you have been loved by Me. You don’t have to strive; just come to me each day and ask Me to establish and root you in My love. All you have to do is ask. Ask Me for a revelation of how wide and long and high and deep is the love that I have for you; ask for a revelation of this love that surpasses human understanding. Only then will you be able to be filled with the measure of all the fulness of Me. Then you will find that the heaviness, hurts, and fear can no longer hold you down.

This is the secret of why death could not hold Jesus in the grave – My perfect love conquers all.

Arise. Arise and shine. For these are the days of the greatest revival the world has ever known. Many of you say, “Revival is coming.” I tell you now, “Revival is here. Revival has come, and it will keep increasing in intensity until even the world cannot deny it”. It will be as undeniable and as massive as a tsunami wave hits a nation. And the knowledge of My glory shall cover earth just as the waters cover the sea.

I need my children to arise and shine. Once they break out of their own defenses, they will be able to help many others out of their pain. They will then storm the prisons and set free the prisoners, find those who are lost, and bring light to those who are wandering in darkness.”

    Wow! So much truth in your post! We must choose God and Christ daily and not shut him out of our lives because he can give us a strength we cannot give ourselves!ReplyCancel
