Proverbs 8:5-21 says: O simple ones, learn prudence; O foolish men, pay attention. Hear, for I will speak noble things, and from my lips will come what is right; for my mouth, will utter truth; wickedness is an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth are righteous; there is nothing twisted or crooked in them. They are all straight to him who understands and right to those who find knowledge. Take my instruction instead of silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold; for wisdom is better than jewels, and all that you may desire cannot compare with her. I, wisdom, dwell in prudence, and I find knowledge and discretion. The fear of the LORD is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate. I have counsel and sound wisdom, I have insight, I have strength. By me kings reign, and rulers decree what is just; by me princes rule, and nobles govern the earth. I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me. Riches and honor are with me, enduring wealth and prosperity. My fruit is better than gold, even fine gold, and my yield than choice silver. I walk in the way of righteousness, in the paths of justice, endowing with wealth those who love me, and filling their treasuries.
I cry in silence for My people that they open themselves up to the truth. The truth of what is really going on inside of my people and of what is taking place in their hearts. My people are deceived into thinking all is well, but all is not well. Instead of working in unity they set themselves against each other with bitter jealousy and selfish ambition while My wounded people are being mislead and destroyed.
Where are My prophets? You hear from Me and I give you visions, dreams and insight into what is ahead but there is no working together to fulfill my promises. Fighting for first place in peoples’ lives and for God’s approval is preventing you from seeing the petty differences with each other and others that the Lord brings into your lives to get you cleaned up for what is coming. There is no communication and working together to get done what I have called you to do. You need to be united with one heart and purpose and fulfill My will at any cost.
II Corinthians 12:20-21 says: For I fear that perhaps I may come and find you not what I wish, and that you may find me not what you wish; that perhaps there may be quarreling, jealousy, anger, selfishness, slander, gossip, conceit, and disorder. I fear that when I come again my God may humble me before you, and I may have to mourn over many of those who sinned before and have not repented of the impurity, immorality, and licentiousness which they have practiced.
What an army there would be if My people would quit disagreeing with each other (I am right, and you are wrong) and do the hard thing and humble yourselves before each other. It is not what who is right but what is right. The war against each other is inside each of you and needs to be addressed if you are to make a difference in the battle that lies ahead of you and with others. I am bringing up issues in you through trials in everyday life so you can see what is in your heart to lead you to repentance. Then my army will be fully equipped to lead yourself and others to the promised land.
Ephesians 4:1-3 says: 4: I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all lowliness and meekness, with patience, forbearing one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Be open to a loving rebuke from a brother or sister in the Lord. Then allow them to go to the King of Kings for the answers. He will lead them into all truth. The one who is giving the loving rebuke needs to back away and allow the one being disciplined to go to the King of Kings for the answers. We are not to be mini gods in their lives.
The Lord will bring people and circumstances into our lives to grow us up. How we respond to others is a clue as to what is in our hearts. Are we listening, praying, and asking for answers instead of running and denying the truth of what is hidden in our hearts because of what is being exposed? If we run or do not listen, the Lord will allow even more difficult times to come to us.
Galatians 6:1-5 says: 6: Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Look to yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if any one thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in him self alone and not in his neighbor. For each man, must bear his own load.
Someone else’s answers may not agree with yours. It is OK, let it go! I will lead you and them into all truth. Trust Me for their lives. You are not to be their god. Plant the seed and I will work with them to grow them into maturity. It is not your job!
John 16:13-15 says: When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine; therefore, I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.
Let Me be as original with other people as I am with you. Everyone has their own path to walk on My holy highway and no one can walk that path with them. It is between them and Me. Seek My face and there will be deliverance, harmony, and execution. Execution to do My will with strength harmony and perseverance to get the job done.
Isaiah 35:8-10 And a highway will be there, a roadway, and it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, but it will be for him who walks that way, and fools will not wander on it. No lion will be there, nor will any vicious beast go up on it; these will not be found there. But the redeemed will walk there, and the ransomed of the Lord will return, and come with joyful shouting to Zion. With everlasting joy upon their heads. They will find gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.
Then My mighty army will be prepared to do my will for what lies ahead in the days to come. My strength will be the only way to strike down the enemy and My plans and victory will come.
Joel 2:1-5 and Joel 3:9-14 says: 2: Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming, it is near, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness! Like blackness there is spread upon the mountains a great and powerful people; their like has never been from of old, nor will be again after them through the years of all generations. Fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns. The land is like the Garden of Eden before them, but after them a desolate wilderness, and nothing escapes them. Their appearance is like the appearance of horses, and like war horses they run. As with the rumbling of chariots, they leap on the tops of the mountains, like the crackling of a flame of fire devouring the stubble, like a powerful army drawn up for battle. Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare war, stir up the mighty men. Let all the men of war draw near, let them come up. Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weak say, “I am a warrior.” Hasten and come, all you nations round about, gather yourselves there. Bring down thy warriors, O LORD. Let the nations bestir themselves and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat; for there I will sit to judge all the nations round about. Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Go in, tread, for the wine press is full. The vats overflow, for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes, in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
I cry in silence for My people to humble themselves, be open to the truth, clean themselves up, get ready and be prepared for battle. The battle is mine says the Lord. Let not your training be in vain.
I Corinthians 9:24-27 says: Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but only one receives the prize? So, run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. Well, I do not run aimlessly, I do not box as one beating the air; but I pommel my body and subdue it, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
Do not run in vain. Not your will but My will be done.
Galatians 6:9 says: And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary.
In closing I would like to share that there have been many times in my life that I have thrown my hands in the air and told Father God I cannot take anymore, I give up. By His grace and mercy, He does not give up on me. He lets me fall, picks me up leads me to repentance and says, “Okay let us try it again. I love you and I will never leave you nor forsake you.” We may have been given up on by ourselves and others but never by Father God. We are the ones who stray away and give up. Let us run the race to freedom and help others along the way. What we have gone through is exactly what someone else needs help with. Be ready be alert and be ready to go when God says go with no hesitation.
This verse is one of my favorite scriptures. I would like to encourage you to keep going, persist and not give up. Our reward awaits us in heaven.
The time is so short so do not waste the precious time of learning seeking repenting and obeying. The Corona virus is just a foretaste of what is to come. Do not lose heart…
Isaiah 40:28-31 says: Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary, his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
