On March 25, 2020 the Lord woke me up with a message.
He said, "Stop focusing on the natural and turn to Me! Have spiritual eyes to see Me! Come to Me! Focus on Me! I gave you scripture so that you would not forget Me! You need to know Me! Put my Word into your hearts for it is your Book of Instruction! Do not change it! Do not manipulate it! Do not forget it!”
“Return to Me says the Lord! You are following shadows! They are not real! There is no life in your worthless idols! I am the one who gives breath!”
The Lord says “Stop trying to bind my lips! Who do you think you are? Do you think you can speak for Me? Do you think your thoughts matter? Do you think you are more than just chaff in the wind, here today and gone tomorrow? I am the Creator of your beginning and end!"
"He who has ears to hear let him hear!"
"He that has eyes to see let him see!"
"There is a battle! There has always been a battle! I have always been fighting for my children and I always will!"
"It is you who have left me! It is you who has turned your back! It is you who think you are wise in your own eyes! Do you think your goodness matters when you have turned your back of Me? Are you like my servant Job who believed he was above reproach? How dare you! How dare you! How dare you! You are an insolent child! Rebellious to your core! Now listen to my words and take heed! TURN your heart back to Me! Do not be led by your finite mind! It has become a stumbling block to your soul! Your mind has gotten you into this mess! Your mind is twisted and your thoughts are dirty! Repent and give Me your heart! I will wash away the filth that holds you down in the quicksand of your soul!”
“NO MORE!, says the Lord! I long for your heart! Lean not on your own understanding! My servant has eyes to see! She is writing down my word! Be like her! Broken and in despair she came to find Me! She has My Light! She will do My will! She will lay down her life for Me! That is the heart I am looking for! Do not stand on bended knee giving me half-hearted honor! Even my enemies will do that! I am looking for the faithful and true! Will that be you?”
“Now send this message! Put it on the airways! Stream my message! There will be no mucous to prevent MY breath from flowing through! I Am that I Am! "
When I got out of bed, there was a heaviness in my spirit. During my shower, the Lord also said, "I am bringing my children back to Me by the changing of the wind. Turn. Turn. Turn. Burn. Burn. Burn." He then showed me a slow turning of the face back to him (Turn. Turn. Turn.), which brought forth the poem "Faith, Do You Hear Me?" The "Burn" however had three meanings, (1) burning up the impurities, (2) burning up the chaff, and (3) igniting the wicks that were ready with oil.
Later in the day, I participated in another person's Facebook group and had posted what the Lord told me. The person got very angry very quickly and told me not promote my ministry (which I don't have one other than to herald what the Lord tells me to) and then started casting out demons, as if I was the demon. I quickly submitted and was not sure what I had done wrong, but I apologized and cowered down like a dog to stop the abuse - which is how it felt. Within a few moments, she softened and told me she loved me and then moved on. I stayed on the line because I was not sure what took place. It just felt wrong. This person did a similar thing to me a year ago, and at that time, the Lord had given me a message, "I am wringing out My remnant for one drop of My blood covers a multitude of sin." I was excited and new to this assignment the Lord gifted me with. In my pursuit for prophetic mentor-ship, I found this person through a mutual friend and began following her. I love the majority of what she says, but I sensed a wrong spirit somewhere. Problem is I did not know if it was me or her. When she scolded me the first time, a year ago, I took down all my posts and even got rid of my page because I felt I was doing it wrong and upsetting the Lord. Yet, in the back of my mind I heard the Lord say, "You will know me by my fruit."
Many months later I met her in person and she seemed very nice so I re-friended her on FB and started following again. I've watched the same spirit of judgement occur several times. The Lord said again, "You will know me by my fruit." I discerned an impure spirit a year ago, and then several times recently as witness to how she responded to others, and then again to me. I consulted with my pastor and another elder, one of which used to listen to her and stopped because she sensed a judging spirit. She reminded me that Jesus is the judge. So, I have distanced myself and am praying for her. I also asked the Lord to help me see her the way he does so that I could understand what was going on. He showed me the shadows that were left on the walls when the bomb hit in Hiroshima. He said that she is like a bomb - a strong desire to protect the kingdom but is taking out innocent due to lack of empathy and love. It reminded me of how important it is to stay humble so that we do not fall prey to the enemy. We are to correct, in love. Correction should occur in private, with more than one witness, and should always be rooted in love.
Anyway, because I doubted myself and the words God was giving me, I starting taking down my posts. As I was doing that, a lady from church called and asked me if I wanted prayer. How amazing is that? She told me she loved watching the Facebook videos and was encouraged by them. I told her I was in process of taking down the posts and explained why. She encouraged me to put them back up and not to doubt myself or doubt what God was saying. That's when Holy Spirit reminded me of what He wrote this morning. "Do not try to bind my lips." I repented quickly and put some of the messages back up.
As I looked back, I was warned by another prophet to be careful because, as she said it, "There is someone that you trust that you think you can confide in but they are not trustworthy. They will turn on you." I wondered who that could be because I could not imagine any of my immediate friends doing that. Once this happened, however, I knew right away who it was.
That was NOT the first time I experienced a controlling spirit that sought submission. Several years ago, I taught a yoga class (I now teach restorative release) with a small group of women whom I did not know personally. The owner's dog kept barking at me for no reason until I was fully submitted on the ground. When were were doing yoga, I felt roots growing down from my body, and I felt roots from the others growing into me. I yelled "Jesus" in my mind and he came and broke the ties. I felt set free. After the class, I found out two of the women regularly attended events at "spiritualist/psychics/witches" location in Florida. I immediately repented to the Lord for putting myself in that position. In fact, I had been warned by the same elder above not to go to the woman's house because she had seen things on her Facebook page that sparked concern.
So, thank you Lord for helping me get better at discerning spirits, and thank you for helping me to move forward confidently with the words you have for your people. I am a humble servant, and I long only to serve you. Father, I remember what you told me several years ago when you asked me to give my business back to you and I didn't want to. That doesn't make sense, I thought. Everything lined up for the business. I worked hard to get the business going. I had posters and business cards and accounting. I was ready. Then you told me to give it ALL back to you. You told me to stop hiding behind a business name. You told me to just be me. "Just be You", you said! That's how "Giving Up Issac" was birthed. Then you said, You will have "Uncommon Success", and today, I can honestly say, YEAH! I have no desire to run my own full-time business. Your presence Lord is priceless. I long only to please you!
