I Am is speaking.

This is a prophecy that has come to our fellowhsip and I want to share it publically, to encourage us ALL.

The Latter Rain

To My people. To My Church.
Are you foolish or are you wise? Be alert, not idle, for If you sleep the sleep of death, cut off from God, you will miss the Holy Spirits moving in the time of the Latter Rain.

Are you feeding upon the Word of the Living God that proceeds out of His mouth? Or are you caught up in walking in the flesh, making provision for the flesh? Awake, hear what the Holy Spirit is saying to the Church in this hour. Respond to the Holy Spirit. Sit not idle, hypnotized by the call of Babylon, the short lived reign of Egypt, the glitter and charm from demons on assignment arrayed in many places and faces, with luring seducing power. Awake, flee, come out from among the destined dead, come out, flee for your life. Look not back.

I say, answer Me when I call, AWAKE, shed the scales from your eyes, the blinders from your mind. Answer Me when I call, open when I knock, follow when I lead. Why march into the dark death prisons. I am your Savior, your Lord, your Helper, your Healer, why halt you between two opinions, two opponents, Me and satan? Go all the way with me, LIVE, LIVE, LIVE.

The enticing spirits from hell have come with seducing powers, but I am the Victor over all. I took the power over all of hell and gave it to you, My Church. Put on the whole armor of God, the total power of God. It’s your garment. As the priest was clothed from head to foot, you, My People, have the covering to choose, each one, as Aaron, was anointed. It ran down from his head, down on his beard, down to garments and to the feet.

O My People, awake in this hour, I am in your midst, walking, talking, leading, performing My priestly duties. I am your High Priest. I call you to arise and function in your priestly calling. You are called, anointed ordained and covered by My Blessing, My power, My desire and will, My Blood.

I Am God and there is no other.

Many are and will perish by choice; they made not the Lord God their Abiding place. I have called, I have drawn, I have sent the prophets the priests, the laborers, why will you die? TURN, TURN, TURN. Turn to Me. My arms are open to receive and my Word to save.

It is not My will that any should perish.
Come before it’s too late!
The door will one day be closed.
Which side of the door will you be on?
Shut in with God, shut out darkness.
Choose! I have given every soul a choice.

I see your heart. I know your thoughts.
You say “I can’t be saved, I missed it so I have sinned, and made so many mistakes. I can’t forget my past, sins, mistakes, faults, wrong doings.” Don’t count my shed Blood as nothing! The precious Blood, Divine Blood…the Blood of the Son of God. Shed for all sins of God’s created beings. The Blood that takes away, not just covers. I am He that blotteth out all your sins. I only ask you to believe and receive. Be saved, set free from the curse of sin, which is eternal death. The enemy will say, "Not so!" He can’t say anything else for he is a liar. Praise me for My Blood Cleansing and forgiveness – out loud, and the enemy will run from you. Receive the New Life, receive your New Master, receive peace and Divine Help. Expect Good things. Expect God things. Say it, think it, see it, hear it, experience it.

I Am that I Am, the One and Only God!

Keep What God's Given

I was reading part of a small booklet authored by the late John Osteen, entitled "Keep What God's Given."

The three initial Scripture references really got me MAD at the devil...again.

1. Matthew 12:42-45 that says:
43 "When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none.
44 Then he says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.' And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order.
45 Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation."

2. John 10:10
10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

3. I Peter 5:8
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

Three things the devil does.
1. he will return
2. he will steal, kill and destroy.
3. he will devour.

None of us will ENJOY the blessings of God without being contested by our enemy.

More battles are lost and more blessings are lost on satans counter-attack than any other time in our lives, and I see that we need to know HOW TO KEEP what God's given us.

In Ephesians 4:27 we're told:
27 nor give place to the devil.

James 4:7 says:
Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Hosea 4:6
6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

Ephesians 2:2,3, 5
2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,
3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),

We ALL, at one time belonged to satan, before any of us came to Christ.

I Corinthians 6:19, 20
19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.

WE ARE the house/temple of God.

While the devil is so vigilent, constant and sober, so active and some of God's people are NOT.

Many in the Body of Christ sit down and say they don't want the Word of God, and to invest the time it takes to make it part of their lives.
They say they don't want to believe the "faith message,"...when the "faith message" is what is preached all through the Word of God. We cannot please God without faith.
They say they don't want to appear extreme, or radical....geeze! I think the price Jesus paid was EXTREME and RADICAL...and He paid it so we could live OVERCOMING LIVES.
They don't want to believe the Bible.

A lot of folk just want to go rock-a-by-baby in their comfort zones that "religion" has to offer them....when the devil is SEEKING WHO HE MAY DEVOUR!?? If that be the case, our goose is cooked.

What does God say to do?

Revelation 2:25
25 But hold fast what you have till I come.

Hebrews 4:14
14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.

Paul told us in Romans to renew our minds to the Word of God (Romans 12:1,2)....He KNOWS it's the SWORD of the Spirit that we will be able to combat our enemy with. It's THE ONLY thing that defeats the devil.

When Jesus was taken by God's Spirit into the wilderness to fast and pray before His public ministry got underway....the enemy came to him with three propositions. he tempted Jesus in spirit, soul and body...and each time Jesus' response was "It is written." He sat a good example for each of us. Didn't He?

(Father, I thank YOU that YOU HELP US! Help us to be vigilent with Your Word. Help us to be uncompromising with our confession of FAITH in Your Word. Help us to be faithful to all that You've given us to live this life with....Your Word, the Blood of Your Son, The Name of Your Son and the HELP of YOUR MIGHTY MIGHTY Spirit! Help us to be vigilent, and sober, so the enemy, satan will not be able to "successfully RETURN", "kill, steal and destroy", and so he will not be able to "devour" any part of our lives." Help us to KEEP WHAT YOU HAVE GIVEN US! Help us to be overcomers OVER the devil with by the Blood of Jesus and the Word of our testimony, which is setting ourselves in agreement with what YOU SAY! In Jesus' Name.

Acknowledge Him and He'll Direct Our Paths

Proverbs 3:5, 6
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

In the notations of my Bible there is a segment called "Kingdom Dynamics" and the person that contributed to the commentary for this Scripture was Dick Eastman. He had this to say about it.

Intimacy and Spiritual Breakthrough.

Two words in this passage are especially significant - the words "ways" an "acknowledge."

The word "ways" (Hebrew derek) means "a road, a course, or a mode of action." It suggests specific opportunities a person may encounter on a recurring basis. The most common "segment of opportunity" we experience regularly is each new ay. It is as if this passage suggests that in all our "days" we should acknowledge God, and in so doing He will direct our paths.

Of equal significance is the word "acknowledge" (Hebrew yada') Elsewhere yada' is translate "know," meaning to know by observation, investigation, reflection or firstand experience. But the highest level of yada' is in "direct, intimate contact." This refers to life-giving intimacy, as in marriage. Applied to a spiritual context, it suggests an intimacy with God in prayer that conceives and births blessings and victories. Joined to our Proverbs text, we might conclude that if in all our "days" we maintain yada' (direct, intimate contact with God), God promises to direct our paths toward fruitful, life-begetting endeavors.

GOD, HELP US to maintain intimate contact with YOU. Help us to keep close to you by prayer, meditation in Your Word so that we may hear Your voice and so Your Blessings and Victories are birthed in our lives. HELP US to do so, so YOU may direct our paths toward fruitful, life-begetting endeavors, for all of our days. In Jesus' Name.

Coming To the Altar of God

Matthew 5:23, 24
23 Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you,
24 leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.

Romans 12:1
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

This passage speaks about offence, strife, discord and when we take ourselves to the altar as the living sacrifice that we are to be....if those things have been given ANY place in our lives, we have to get up from the altar of God, make things RIGHT in our lives; and/or others....THEN go back to God with a clean heart and clean hands.

We ARE the living sacrifices upon God's altar, and we WILL be an acceptable sacrifice unto the Lord, In Jesus' Name.


Our prayers will be hindered if there is any strife, unforgiveness...if there's ANYTHING between us or anyone else. I don't know about you, but I've got too many prayers before God, to have them HINDERED by things that the enemy puts in my way to cause me or others to stumble.

Matthew 18:7
Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

The Word says that offences WILL come...but WOE to the one by whom they come.
NOT ME!!! In Jesus' Name.

Galatians 5:7
Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?

Job 22:30
30 He will even deliver one who is not innocent; Yes, he will be delivered by the purity of your hands.

We MUST remember that we've got to have clean heart and clean hands, and this is something that is doable....else God would not have required it. Lives are at stake, and not just our own, those that we've got before the Lord.

God HELP US, not to allow anything that comes our way HINDER us from obeying YOUR truth, Your Word! To hinder our prayers, to hinder others lives to hinder ourselves from being all that YOU have called us to be. HELP US to live and move and have our being IN YOU! In Jesus' Name.
