An Exhortation From The Father: Living Stones

Fellowship is important, or I would not have set up My church the way I have. It is the Living Stones which I have hewn must come together to form the building.  I dwell in each of you to a determined measure, but in and of yourselves I can only fill you up so much.  However, when you all come together the filling in each one of you is combined.  This is the fullness that you sense in the corporate setting - the fullness of joy, the fullness of My Spirit. The fruits of My Spirit are all there and the joy that comes from that will strengthen and empower you. 

In the places [in My church] where the leaven of the Pharisees has overtaken, you will not have this joy.  The joy of those who walk in My Spirit will be full of glory - it is the joy unspeakable.  There are also places [in My church] full of the leaven of Herod.  It is a worldly yeast that has worked its way in and puffed up the whole congregation. Both the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod puff up and make [those who partake of it] haughty. Pride is always the root!  So beware of this when searching out a Body to be connected and attached to.

My church will be built and it will be built to Myspecifications. If My specifications are not followed exactly, then I will tear down that building and begin again.  My foundation is always the same - Jesus is the foundation.  He is the Christ and the Only One worthy to open the scrolls. To Him be given the glory or the building will crumble.  The works of man must all pass through His eyes of fire.  What is left standing will remain.

The church will take on a new look in the coming days.  It will not be people coming week in and week out to do their "time" for God, but it will be Living Stones being fitted together by the Hand of the Master Builder Himself.  Did Jesus tell His disciples that He was going to make a place?

Do you not know yet nor do you not see that you are the temple of the Living God? Have I not placed My Spirit in you? Are not all My promises, "Yes" in Christ Jesus?  Is it now possible for you to say together in one voice, "Amen" to the glory of your Father?

Seek My promises for the Body of Christ and know that I have spoken, "Yes" to them all.  You who are called by My name say, "Amen!"  Then you will see My glory coming into the Living Stones and you will see a new and glorious church arise.

This is not for another time.  This is for now.

Please see:
Hebrews 10:22-25; Psalms 127:1; John 14:2, 21, 23; John 15:4; Mark 8:15; Luke 6:46-49; Luke 11:37-54; Luke 12:1-3; Luke 13:20,21; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 2 Corinthians 1:20-22; Ephesians 2:20-22; 1 John 1:3-7

As we approach the end of 2007 and look forward to what the Lord has for us in the coming year, it is important that we take stock in what has already been given us.  I have been seeking the Lord for 2008 and interestingly He has made it clear that I am to rerelease the word for 2007 before He will release the word for 2008!

So I submit to you the word the Lord gave me for 2007.  It was originally sent out in five parts.  I hope you can use it as a five day study and I strongly recommend reading the Scripture references as I know the Lord will speak to you as you do. 

Be blessed in the Father's love,

2007 - The Year of Cadence

Part One: To My people who are called by My name:

As you enter into and proceed through 2007, I do not desire for you to make resolutions for this year, I desire for you to make a revolution.  This revolution is not to occur outside in the world, but on the inside of your heart and mind.  This word is not meant to merely impact you over just one year; it must change you for life.  I desire a revolution of purity and holiness in the people who are called by My name.  It is time to fervently seek My face.  I do not ask this of unbelievers; I ask this of you.  It is time by the power of My Spirit to utterly put to death the misdeeds of the body so that you will live.  I tell you it is time to overthrow your fleshly nature. Your flesh and all its desires are no longer to govern you.  Do not sit idle and think of ways to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.  It is time for those who call themselves Mine to wake up!  It is time to move.  The slumber that you have been in has been deep, and rousting you awake has taken much time and energy.  What will it take to get your attention? 

(See 2 Chronicles 7:14; Romans 13:11-14; Ephesians 5:13-17; Revelation 3:2, 3)

The hour has come for you to completely wake up from your slumber, because your salvation is nearer now than when you first believed. Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, put on My armor, put on My light, put on My love, put on a garment of Praise.  If you really want to see breakthrough in your life, take off the old man and deeds of darkness. Put on Christ!  My soldiers - those who are the ambassadors of My love - are lining up.  They are the ones who have been tried in My fire and have been tested in the wilderness.  They have gone through many fastings and times of consecrated prayer.  They know My voice and another they will not follow.  These are the ones I trust to carry the fire of My love for the nations and to the nations.  My love wins all battles.  I Am calling you today to be part of that army.  I Am asking you to get into formation. I Am beckoning you to war against hate with My love and forgiveness.  Blessed are the merciful for they will be shown mercy.  Each time you choose mercy over judgment you overthrow the powers of darkness.  Judge not or you will be judged.  Instead, send confusion into the camp of the enemy by forgiving offenses.  When the enemy seeks to strike at you, turn and praise and worship your God!  Confound him with your praises of victory as My people did when they were surrounded by the enemy at The Valley of Berachah.  You are more than conquerors through Christ who loves you, so go into the battle knowing that you have already won.

(See 2 Chronicles 20:1-26; Isaiah 61:3; Matthew 5:7; 7:1, 2; Luke 6:36; John 3:16; 10:4, 5, 27; Romans 8:13; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21; Galatians 3:27; Ephesians 6:10-18; Colossians 3:1-17; 2 Tim 2:4

There is a sound on the horizon, My dearly loved children, friends and soldiers.  Do you hear it?  It is the sound of My army.  It is the sound of cadence.  It is the sound of My army marching in step with Me and along side My heavenly angelic hosts. Can you hear the sound of heaven?  Can you hear the cadence in your heart?  Do you feel the rhythm beating within every fiber of your being?  This is a military like no other.  I provided for your atonement and I can provide anything you need in any situation.  This army has been given powerful weapons and has been trained to use them by My Spirit because they are spiritual weapons.  They are mighty in the pulling down of strongholds.  Take every thought captive, beloved, and make your will obey the ways of your King!  My will be done. Line up, fall in, march, follow Me. 

(See Isaiah 51:4-7; Matthew 6:10; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5; Acts 2:2

My grace has been extended in an extraordinary way to those who heeded the word and submitted their flesh to My Spirit in 2006.  Even if it were a failed attempt, I see your heart and a double measure of grace is given to you now to walk in victory. Receive it.  Receive My grace.  This is not about your keeping a set of rules.  This is about following Me, trusting Me, and seeking My counsel in every area of your life.  As you walk in step with Me in 2007 and allow Me to bring you into spiritual perfection, you will see miracles flow freely from My storeroom into the places of greatest need.  The release of My grace will be clearly seen and not hidden in a back room.  Believers and unbelievers alike will stand in awe together.  So rise up in My love and soar to new heights by My hand and My provision.  My grace is sufficient.  My power is made perfect in your weakness.

(Deuteronomy 28:2; Proverbs 3:5-8; Isaiah 52:2; Matthew 24:27; 2 Corinthians 12:9)

Love,
Abba

2007 - The Year of Cadence

Part Two: My Desires for My Church

Let Me tell you what I desire.  I desire to see My beloved Church arise in unity and strength.  I desire to see My Church step in time.  I long to see you revolutionized by walking in My ways.  My ways are pure and holy and true and you will be blessed and whole and healed as you walk in them.  O rejoice at this news dear ones!  Does My word tell you that I desire to see the whole Body of Christ built up, joined and held together by every supporting ligament?  Yes!  I yearn to see you grow and built up in love.  Do not live as the unbelievers do, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the hardening of their hearts.  As it is written in Scripture:

"Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion." Hebrews 3:7, 8a

Those written of in this Scripture never entered into My rest. Do not be stubborn like they were in their disbelief.  See to it that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from Me. Instead run to Me!  Run to the Mercy Seat for this is the hour of grace.  Return to the joy of your salvation. Encourage one another every day as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness. 

(See Psalm 103:3; 133:1; John 17:23; Romans 15:5; Ephesians 4:11-18; Hebrews 3:19; 4:16)

I Am asking you to view your circumstances and the circumstances of those around you from My heavenly perspective.  Follow Jesus' example; He did nothing without seeing Me do it first.  He acknowledged that He could do nothing in Himself and taught you that you can do nothing in yourself.  Let me show you everything as I showed Him.  I want you to see what is going on around you and your world from My vantage point - from My overwatch(1).  Ask for the eyesight of an eagle. I will freely give the keen vision of an eagle to whosoever will ask Me.  I want you to be able to see afar off. Ask Me for the ointment and I will heal your eyes.  They are dimmed from having to strain and squint to see through the darkness of this world.  I have much for you to see because the enemy is advancing in unparalleled ways.  What is impossible for man is possible with God. Only believe.

(See John 5:19, 20; 6:28, 29; 14:9-14; Mark 5:36; 10:27; Revelation 3:18; 12:14)

Satan's time is short and he grows increasingly ruthless.  He desires to blind you completely by poisoning your vision.  He does not want you to see him as he advances.  He uses camouflage to trick My church.  He uses your own flesh and its desires against you with the goal to destroy you.  Be careful what you look at and bring into My temple.  You are My temple and I love you!  I tell you this to protect you and not to keep you from "fun".  While sin may seem fun for a season, you must understand that Satan's goal is to steal, kill and destroy you, and he is using your own flesh to do it.  Your carnal nature is drawn to sin, so you must war within your members and take every thought captive to make it obedient to the Lord Jesus Christ.  Remember though, Satan and his demons are not omnipresent nor can they read your mind.  Do not get into agreement with his lies.  Do not give him and his cohorts power over your life. He can only gain it if you hand it to him.  Do not assign to him what belongs to Me and that is glory.  Do not glorify him.  My church tends to speak over and over again what Satan and his demons are doing and that glorifies them; it magnifies them.  Come!  Magnify the Lord!  Wash the venom from your eyes in My Living Water.  Jesus disarmed the powers and authorities of darkness. He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the Cross.  Look at what Jesus has done to defeat them. Speak of what He has done to set you free.   Jesus came to give you life and give it to you in abundance. Glorify Him!

(See Psalm 34:3; John 5:20, 21; 8:36; 10:10; Romans 7:21-25; 2 Corinthians 10:5; Galatians 5:19-21; Colossians 2:13-15; Revelation 12:12; 14:7)

Be wise with your words and be wise in your treatment of others.  Be wise with all that you say and do.  If you follow Jesus' two commandments - to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind, and love your neighbor as yourself - then it will be well with your soul. This is not to say you will not suffer hardship.  You will.  That thinking is in direct conflict with My Word and is from "another gospel".  Jesus taught that tribulation would come, but that He had overcome the world. The prince of this world had nothing on Jesus, and as you are in Christ, Satan has nothing on you either.  Take joy in that knowledge!

(See Matthew 12:37; 22:36-40; 24:9-14; Luke 7:35; John 14:30; 16:33)

Love,
Abba

(1) Overwatch - The term overwatch originates in U.S. military doctrine.  In modern warfare overwatch is the state of one military vehicle supporting another unit while they are executing fire and movement tactics.  Anoverwatching unit has taken a position where it can observe the terrain ahead.   The overwatch position can especially search out enemy positions. This allows it to provide effective covering for advancing friendly units.

Part Three:  The Meat of the Matter:

Understand that I Am the God of the universe and I Am is inviting you to My war-room.  Will you come?  This is not a time for the weak or faint of heart.  It is time for mighty men and woman of valor to rise up and take their place.  It is time to come out of the caves and advance My kingdom and My purpose.  Be careful not to have any agenda but Mine.  Your agenda will surely cause you to drift off the course of My plan. My plan is perfect.  Trust that I will assign your post, so do not try to figure out where you are to be and what you are to do, as it is up to Me to determine your position.  I will assign your duties.  I will make it plain.  If you try to place yourself or elevate your own rank in My army, it is likely that you will choose to go somewhere and do something you think sounds like the best assignment.  You must trust Me that this could be a fatal miscalculation on your part.  If you assign yourself to the post of your comfort and choosing, you will most likely be in direct opposition to My purpose and plan for your life.  I Am God of the heavenly hosts and saints.  I do know what is best for you.  Once you know what position I have called you to, march to it and go forth with confidence, not arrogance, beloved, with confidence in Me to see you through every battle and to provide your every need.  Stand alert, so if your orders change, quickly comply and move to your new post.  If you do not trust Me to command you, then who is your Lord?  Have you accepted My Son as Savior, but not made Him your Lord?  I ask you to trust your heavenly Father.  I discipline those I love.  Allow Jesus to be your King, Ruler, and Lord of your life.

(See Exodus 15:3; 1 Corinthians 12:4-14; Philippians 2:2-11; Hebrews 12:4-8, 11; 1 John 5:14; Revelation 4:1, 19:19)

Remember that the weapons that I have provided to My army are mighty in the pulling down of strongholds.  These are not natural weapons but spiritual ones because you are in a spiritual battle. However, I issue this warning: Do not pick up the weapons of your enemy or you will become like your enemy. Satan's weapons are jealousy, suspicion, gossip, envy, dissension, discord, slander, factions, contention, strife, unforgiveness, bitterness, wrath, anger, hatred and the like. These are rampant in the church and come from a spirit of pride.  Satan wants you to emulate him and I have given you the choice as to whom you will serve.  So choose wisely!  Have I not warned you in My Word that those who practice such things will not enter into My kingdom?  Do not emulate the devil. Satan prowls around and seeks to destroy you.  He plans to use the death of his servants as an excuse to wage war against the saints. Use My weapons, not the weapons of this world to disarm him and his demons. Pick up the sword of My Word and use it to demolish the evil one's plans to destroy you, your family, those you love and those to whom you are bound by My Spirit.  I will give you wisdom and skill to use it.  My Word is your sword.  Wield it only against the enemy.  Do not be found to be one that wounds a brother or sister in Christ when using My Word - your Bible.  This is a form of self-mutilation as you are all one body.   Instead, love one another deeply with the love (agape) that I give because love covers a multitude of sin. Strengthen, comfort and encourage each other with My Holy Scriptures.  Rulers, authorities, principalities and powers of darkness do not have any defense against My love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness or self-control.  When you walk in the fruit of My Spirit; when you love those who hate you and pray for those who persecute you; when you forgive grievances and bear with one another; when you refuse to allow a root of bitterness to take hold of you; when you take up your cross and follow Jesus - then you are demolishing the devil's plans.  Walk in victory, beloved!  You are known in heaven as My chosen, as My elect, and as My children.  Walk humbly before both your God and mankind; if you do, you will have great authority in and by My Spirit. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.

(See Micah 6:8; Luke 9:23-27; 14:27; 1 Corinthians 14:3; Galatians 5:19-26; Ephesians 6:17; Colossians 3:11-17; Hebrews 12:15; 2 Tim 2:24; 1 Peter 2:9-12; 4:8; 5:8, 1 John 5:2; Revelation 2:10)

This is the greatest warfare that mankind can be engaged in and I am calling you to join My army.  Will you walk in My love? If these terms of engagement are difficult for you to envision, again I encourage you to ask Me for the eye ointment to heal your vision so that you can see from My vantage point.   The heavenly view is lovely, beloved! 

 "I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may be rich; and white robes to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nakedness from being seen; and salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see.  I reprove and discipline those whom I love. Be earnest, therefore, and repent.  Listen!  I Am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear My voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you, and you with Me.  To the one who conquers I will give a place with Me on My throne, just as I Myself conquered and sat down with My Father on His throne.  Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches."  Revelation 3:18-22

Love,
Abba

2007 - The Year of Cadence

Part Four:  Revelry!  Awaken and Join the Cadence of Righteousness!

O My, beloved church, what will awaken you from your deep slumber?  Many think I desire to bring calamity to bring the world to its knees. This is not My desire.  This has never been My desire.  I Am a merciful God and calamity grieves Me.  The atonement for all sin for all time was provided for you on the Cross of Calvary.  Jesus' blood is the perfect sacrifice and no other is needed.  Great is My love!  I desire for you to be on your knees because I Am your King and out of your love and devotion towards Me.  My desire for you to bow is to confess Jesus is Lord, not because a calamity came your way and you sought Me out as your last resort.  However, know this, if a calamity has brought you to Me, all of heaven rejoices with Me!  Whatever comes your way that causes you to "come to yourself" and turn to Me, then know that I will RUN to meet you.  I will fit you with a robe, a ring and shoes for your feet to walk in My ways and in My authority.

(See 1 Chronicles 21:15; Psalm 95:6; 103:8-14; Daniel 6:10; 10:10-15; Luke 15:10-24; Ephesians 5:14-17; Hebrews 9:26)

You are accepted in the Beloved, but do not think that I will take lightly the avoidance of My correction.  Everyone I love, I correct.  Every child I accept, I discipline.  Please do not lose heart in the process.  It is My desire for you to reap an abundant harvest.  So I ask you, is Jesus your Lord?  If you say yes, yet you do not walk in His teachings, then you deceive yourself into believing you are saved.  If you do not do what He said, then you do not truly believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord.  If this offends you then ask Me to search your heart.  I know you. I love you deeply and My desire is for you to walk with Me.  I will show you My truth and truth will overcome your offenses and unbelief.  You are to follow My Son, Jesus.  Followers are to follow, not to attempt to coerce Me to do what they think they want Me to do for them.  Do not take lightly the gift of grace given you.  Do not think you may do whatever you feel like doing and I will just look the other way on the Day.  My child, you must see that I Am just, I Am holy, I Am righteous.  I Am impartial.  You are misled if you think I will wink at your sin and let you pass. Be responsible for your actions and allow My correction to heal you where you are hurt.  Be holy for I Am holy!  Does this sound like a request?  I warn not to mock the blood of My Beloved Jesus shed for you on Calvary by walking in the ways of the world.  Do not mock My grace. If you operate in this spirit, I ask you to repent and receive My forgiveness.  If you refuse then you will suffer a dreadful blow. You are warned continually of this fact in Scripture and you are warned now.  ALL of My promises are "Yes" in Christ.  This is not just for the blessings, but also for the curses that I have so carefully warned you to avoid. 

(See Psalm 139:23, 24; Matthew 4:19; Luke 9:62; Romans 3:22-26; 2 Corinthians 1:20; Galatians 6:7; Hebrews 12:5-7; 1 Peter 1:15-22; 1 John 1:9)

See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.  For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.   Deuteronomy 30:15, 16

Many think that they are a special case and that they will be the one that will be exempt from My laws, decrees and instruction. No one is exempt from My Word.  Did I make an exception for Jesus?  Was He tested in the wilderness by the enemy?  Did He seek Me to remove His cup?  Was He tempted in all things? Was He rejected and abandoned?  Do you see?  Not even Jesus was exempt from My Word.  I would not be a just and impartial God if even one person were allowed exemption because I would be breaking My own Word.  I will not do that. I did not spare the natural branches. Consider therefore the kindness and the severity of God.

(See Matthew 26:39; Luke 4:1-13; Romans 11:19-22; 1 Peter 2:21-25; 2 Peter 2:21-24)

These words that you hear may sound demanding and even harsh, but dear one, you must understand what is at stake. Thousands of souls are on the line - including yours.  You must understand the times in which you live. You live in days which are perilous and fraught with danger.  Darkness covers the earth and gross darkness on the people, but I will arise upon you and My glory will be seen around and about you if you heed My warnings and walk closely with your God.  How you choose to live has eternal consequences. 

(See Isaiah 60:1-5; Matthew 6:10; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; 2 Peter 3:9; 15-18)

My Son warned you clearly:

"I Am the Vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in Me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.  This is to My Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be My disciples.  As the Father has loved Me, so have I loved you. Now remain in My love."  John 15:5-9

Remain, remain, remain in My Son - remain in the Vine!  Many believe they can presume to proclaim that they love My Son, yet go about doing whatever they feel like doing.  My word is clear on that way of thinking:

What then are we to say? Should we continue in sin in order that grace may abound?  By no means! How can we who died to sin go on living in it?  Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.  Gal 6:1-4

But if your heart turns away and you do not hear, but are led astray .I declare to you today that you shall perish; you shall not live long in the land that you are crossing.This day I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live, loving the LORD your God, obeying Him, and holding fast to Him.  For the Lord is your life. 

Deuteronomy 30:17a, 18a, 19, 20a

Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness.  Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him.  I write to you, dear children, because your sins have been forgiven on account of His name.  1 John 2:9-12

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless.  James1:22, 26

Do not willfully sin beloved child.  My precious gift of perfected love was not given lightly - Jesus paid not only your bail but also served your sentence.  I tell you again, to purposefully and willfully sin, knowing I Am merciful mocks the blood that was shed for sin and God is not mocked.  The reason many mock Jesus' blood and are totally oblivious to this deadly delusion is because they refuse to be corrected by My Spirit of Truth.  I ask you to allow yourself to be corrected, beloved.  "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."  I desire for you to yield a great harvest of peaceable fruit which is My righteousness worked out in you.  Will you allow Me to show you the more excellent way?

(Please see Isaiah 61:1; Psalm 107: 1-16; Matthew 4:17; 1 Corinthians 12:31; Hebrews 12:11)

Love,
Abba

2007 - The Year of Cadence

Part Five:  The Least Shall Be Greatest

Will you allow yourself to become great in My kingdom by becoming the least?  If you will serve mankind as Jesus served, you will be given great authority in this age and the ages to come.  Do you choose to join in cadence with My will?  My army readily pledges their allegiance to Jesus.  This is not about your race, gender, age, nationality, social/spiritual/military status, education, or religious denomination.  I Am not impressed with your résumé. Those who hear Me pledge their allegiance to the Lamb of God who alone is worthy to open the scrolls.  Jesus was obedient to the Cross and it is My desire for you to walk in obedience for eternal life!   The gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it.  The army which awakens, hearkens to My voice, and marches in cadence with My will - are Mine.  He who endures to the end will be saved. 

(See Matthew 7:14; 24:13; Luke 9:48; 2 John 1:6; Ephesians 1:20-23; Galatians 3:28; Philippians 2:2, 3, 8-13; Revelation 5:9-14)

In My Word it is recorded that the disciples of Jesus were arguing as to whom among them would be most famous. My Son perceived their hearts and gave them an illustration using a child.  He sat the child next to Him and said, "Whoever welcomes this child in My name welcomes Me, and whoever welcomes Me welcomes the One who sent Me; for the least among all of you is the greatest."

(See Luke 9:46-48)

You will be known by your fruit.

What is in your heart?  How well does the Lord know you?  Do you call Jesus, "Lord"?  Beloved, examine yourself carefully for so did the five foolish virgins:

"Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.  But he replied, Truly I tell you, I do not know you." Matthew 25:11, 12  

Jesus said, "Many will say to Me, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?" Then I will tell them plainly, "I never knew you. Away from Me, you evildoers!" (Matthew 7:22

Do you see how important it is for Jesus to know you?

My Son did not tell this to His disciples for shock value. Indeed many will say this and they will be known in My kingdom as "evil-doers" for they sought their own fame and not My perfected will.  They took the bait of Satan to build their own kingdom and sought fame and fortune for themselves using the power of My Son's name.  They will not enter into the kingdom of heaven.  The five foolish virgins were shut out of the wedding banquet.  They thought calling Him "Lord" was enough.  They believed being a virgin was enough.  These five even had lamps as they waited.  However, they presumed they did not have to take the time and invest their resources to buy oil to keep their way lit until My Son's return.  You are the light of the world but you cannot come into My kingdom if you walk in darkness.  It is not My desire for any to perish.  It is My deepest desire to say the words to you, "Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!"  So follow the instructions I left to guide you into My eternal kingdom.  Walk in the light as He is in the light.  Be as the wise virgins and awaken from your slumber, trim your wick, fill your lamps with My oil, and come meet the Bridegroom. 

(See Matthew 5:14; 6:23; 7;13-20; 25:1-13; 23; 1 John 1:7)

Recall the parable of the two men who both heard the words of the Lord and one was likened to building on rock and the other on sand.  Though they each heard the words, only one of the men actually put My words into action.  He was wise. The other man heard the words but did not do them.  He was foolish. They both had harsh storms of life hit them.  Both had to endure.  However, only one stood after the storms had passedbecause he had listened and obeyed the word of the Lord.  That man was likened to one who built his house on the rock.  I Am the Rock.  You know this, but you also need to know that you must put into action what I am telling you.  I want you to stand!  If you do not walk in obedience to My word, you will be as the foolish man whose house is lost.  Would you not want to avoid losing everything?  This is My desire for you as well, dear one.  So walk in My love, walk in obedience.  Rejoice for great is your reward.

(See Deuteronomy 32:4; Matthew 7:24-27; 25:1-13, 23; Luke 6:35; Philemon 1:21; 2 John 1:6)

In all these illustrations, and many others, Jesus sincerely warned the disciples of the importance of walking obedient to the word of God and by His Spirit He is now sincerely warning you.  You cannot live with one foot in the world (toying with sin) and one foot in the kingdom (seeking My heavenly rewards). Those giving Jesus lip-service will not come into the kingdom of God.  Do you not understand that I AM is capable of cutting directly through to the truth of your motivations?  I know your heart better than you do.  There is a reason it is written in the Word:

"The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?  I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve." Jeremiah 17:9, 10

Please dear Church, I am pleading with you to repent fromhidden sin and come back to Me with the total abandonment of a child in mid leap.  I WILL catch you!  Does My Word tell you to come to Me as a child?  Trust Me, I will catch you!

(See Matthew 18:1-5; deeply ponder Luke 12:1-5)

There is only obedience or disobedience.  Good intentions are not obedience.

(See Hebrews 2:1-3; 5:8-10; 1 John 3:21-24; 5:3-5; Revelations 3:3)

Turn away from that thing.  It is the thing that you seek to keep hidden and do not anyone to find out.  It is that thing that you know you spend too much time with that has become more important to you than anything - including Me.  You know what it is, because as you read this, you know what you need to turn away from.  Lay it down and turn to Me.  The hour is late.  I have already told you this many times through many voices.  I love you deeply and I have much for you to do in this year, but the first step is to destroy the thing that you spend more time with than you do Me.  As it is written, I Am a jealous God and you shall have no other gods before Me.  My desire is for you and sharing you with worldly things is intolerable for Me.  In a very real sense, you are prostituting yourself and wanting Me to bless you in it.  I cannot and I will not do that.  Please test your works.  Are they good works or My best? 

(Please read Exodus 20:3 and ponder 1 Corinthians 3:11-17)

Beloved, throughout this word there has been a great deal of correction.  I commend you for pushing through it.  If you do not hear this by the Spirit, you will hear condemnation. Remember that there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.  Any correction you have received comes from the heart of the Father who loves you more than you could ever love yourself.  I will wipe every tear from your eyes.  You are cherished.

Love,
Abba

May God's love be yours in abundance both now and forever,
Judy Bauman

An Exhortation From The Father: Turn Your Eyes Upward

O My faithful children!  Turn here and give ear and listen to what I tell you.

Stop the worrying and fretting over those things which are out of your control.  Do you not know that I love you and that I will never forsake My faithful ones? If you are fretting over the evil of men and it has consumed your thoughts, then turn to Me and watch My righteousness rise up with healing in My wings. Turn your eyes upward!  Fix your gaze on the splendor of My glory.  As you turn your eyes toward Me, those things that disturb you here on earth will take on a different color.  Their hues will be shown in My light and you will see them for what they truly are.

Come dear one.  Come and sit on My lap. Come to My dwelling place and hear what I speak to you.  Those things that seem so serious will be as shadow in the light of My glory and your answers will be obvious.

There is no lack where I Am.  Everything you need is where I Am.  I created it all and I have plenty of reserves on hand for those who lack and are in need.  So do not fear, My Flower, you will not wither as I am watering you with My living water and you will not die but live.

Love,
Abba

As the Lord concluded dictating this word, I heard an old American folk song and found the words very interesting in the light of His glory and The Cross of Jesus.  I also heard this song when the Lord gave me the word, "Come Beloved."   http://www.thefathersloveim.org/come_beloved

It was only the chorus that I was hearing, so I will submit just that:

Red River Valley
arranged and adapted by Arlo Guthrie
www.arlo.net

Chorus:

Come and sit by my side, if you love me

Do not hasten to bid me adieu

Just remember the Red River Valley

And the cowboy who loved you so true

An Exhortation from the Father

When the children of Israel hardened their hearts against Me, even though they had seen with their own eyes the Red Sea open and I brought them safely across, I sword an oath not to let them enter My rest.

My children today go by their feelings.  They have placed themselves in a dangerous position by trusting their feelings over My word and My ways.  My church has largely forgotten that I have issued a warning through My son and prophet, Jeremiah, that the heart is wicked and cannot be trusted. My preachers have turned from preaching My word to a gospel that is not of the Cross of My Son, Jesus.  They say, "Follow your heart!"  Oh what a sly and subtle deception this little piece of advice is to My people.  They then follow their hearts and turn away from My precepts which are perfected in My love. 

I disciple those I love, so do not harden your hearts as in the days at Massah in the desert.  Come worship and bow down before the Lord and God, your Maker.  Come enter My rest.

Abba

A Word From The Lord's Heart To Yours

My Beloved, you who are called by My name, do you know how I long for you to come sit by My side - to allow My arms to wrap around you and hold you close?  Come close Sweet One and allow Me to love you.  Allow Me to wipe the tears from your cheek and take the trauma from your heart.

Do not stand aloof from Me doubting My love and care for you.  You have not wronged Me.  I see Your struggles and I struggle with you.  The suffering you face, have faced, and will face will fade in the light of My glory.

Come My Loved One and sit with Me.  Let Me show you how I will redeem what you have thought was lost.  In My light you will see that nothing, not even the precious thing taken, has been lost.  No Beloved, it is all in My hands.  I hold everything in the palm of My hands, so give your heart the peace that it needs in knowing that in My love there is nothing lost - nothing broken.

As I have told you, this is a season of restoration and you will look back, at a time not far from now, and behold all that has been restored to you. In that day of revelation you will stand amazed and rejoice praising the Lord your God for what has been done.  On that day may you look up to where your help drew nigh and give praises to your Father who loves you.

Come Beloved, come and gaze into My eyes and look deep into the pools of revelation.  Allow Me to speak to your heart so that you can not only have peace in the storm, but you can speak peace into the storms. This gift is not only for your benefit but for the benefit of those around you.  Just as I calmed the storm for My disciples, you will calm the storms for those who come to you for guidance. Because you lead them to Me, and have not taken them for yourself, I will multiply the arrows in your quiver.

Come My Beloved, My Lovely One, come and let Me show you the universe as I see it - the true way it was designed.  Let Me show you what it looks like through My eyes.  Listen to My voice and hear the sounds of creation through My ear.  Do you not know that this was all created for you?  All of creation groans to see you walk in the authority I gave My life for you to have.  I want you to walk in the truth and in the understanding of the universe I created.  I created it for you!  I created it for your good pleasure. 

Come My Beloved, My Friend, My Passion.  Come and sit with Me and let Me love you the way you were intended to be loved.  You can trust Me.  I will never hurt nor will I abandon you.  I Am Faithful and I love you with an everlasting love.

So come Beloved.  Come and sit in the light of My glory and let Me love you.  Come and see where I intend to take you.  The heights I will take you will cause every particle of your being to throb with joy. 

Come Beloved, I Am waiting for you.

The season of restoration has begun.  For some it will be a time of great rejoicing as My hand works on their behalf, but for others in My church who have been busy building their own kingdoms, they will see destruction come quickly into their projects.

This is the season that I have chosen to restore what the locusts have eaten.

This is a season when you will see great and mighty works by My hand.  You will see your mountains moved.  You will behold My glory and know that I Am God and it is I, not man, who has moved your mountain.

Stand in faith and know that I Am your Defense; I Am your Shield; I Am your Healer; I Am your Ever-present Help in times of trouble; I Am your Comfort and I Am your Provider. Do not look to man to do what only I can do, says the Lord.

Give to Me what belongs to Me as I will not share My glory with flesh.  As you behold My miracles do not look at the vessels I use.  They are only instruments in My hand. 

Know that I love you and that it is My desire to roll away the reproach from your life so that all shame will vanish in the light of My glory.  I love you with an everlasting love.  I call you "friend".  So do not fear, for I Am with you. Do not be dismayed for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and I will help you.  I will uphold you in My Righteous Right Hand.

My children will not be left orphans.  They belong to Me and no one can remove them from My hand.

So come boldly to My Throne of Grace and behold My salvation, My provision and My love.  You will not be ashamed.

Joel 2:25-27; Romans 8; Isaiah 41:10

An Exhortation from God the Father

Readers: While this word is directed specifically to the fathers, this message is not only for fathers, nor is it for men only. It is for all who are called by His name. In Christ there is no gender as we are all one inChrist.  See Galatians 3:28

Do you know who you are, son?  Man was created in My image and in My image you reflect My love or lack thereof. You are the very reflection of God Almighty on earth.  When people look at you they see Me.  When your children look at you they either see My love, grace, mercy, faithfulness and patience or they see your judgment, condemnation, perfectionism, apathy, and anger as a reflection of My character.  Do not allow a bitter root to spring from you and defile many.  (See Hebrews 12:15)  The fruits of the flesh and the fruits of the Spirit are very apparent.  (See Galatians 5:19-26)  So what are you reflecting to your children and to those you mentor?  What do you reflect to those who are subordinate to you? (See Ephesians 6:9)  As an example, how do you speak of those who are superior to you in authority? (See 1 Tim 2:1-4; Titus 3:1, 2)

Many desire to know exactly what I have called them to do and where they are to be.  The perfection of My plan will unfold moment by moment and day by day as you bend your will to Mine.  Do not look to the right or to the left.  Let not your hearts be troubled.  Do what I have asked you to do and then we will move onto the next thing together.  Do not despise the day of small beginnings.  He who is faithful with little will be given much.  (See John 14:1; Joshua 1:7; Zech 4:10, Luke 16:10)

Right now I want you to listen to what I tell you.  You have heard that before the terrible Day of the Lord I sent the prophet Elijah.  My Son Jesus made it clear that John the Baptist came in the spirit of Elijah to restore all things, and yet John clearly did not know who he was. The angel told his father, Zechariah, but John did not understand the depth of his calling. (See Matt 17:12, 13 and John 1:21) He did not know he was the Elijah to come and restore all things.  (See Luke 1:11-17

Now I ask you: Do you know who you are?  What was and what is the purpose of Elijah's coming?  Yes, he destroyed the false prophets of BAAL, but what was it he was to restore?  What do I desire to be restored now? Does not My word tell you?  Does not My word make it plain?  The Old Testament ends with this strategic information and the New Testament in the Gospel of Luke begins with it.  So can you not see for yourself how plain I have made it?

Malachi 4:5, 6  Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:  And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. KJV

Malachi 4:5, 6  Lo, I will send you the prophetElijah before the great and terrible day of the LORD comes.  He will turn the hearts of parents to their children and the hearts of children to their parents, so that I will not come and strike the land with a curse. NRSV

Luke 1: 17  And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. KJV

Luke 1: 17  With the spirit and power of Elijah he will go before him, to turn the hearts of parents to their children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord." NRSV

Many of you believe you are ready for My coming, but you are not ready.  The hearts of the fathers MUST return to the sons. The hearts of the parents must return to the children. In the days to come My promptings will become very pointed and exacting.  A breaking is coming!  The fathers are the ones closest to My reflection on earth and I am soon putting My foot down. Those who are repentant will see great breakthroughs in every area of their life, but those who are not will suffer great judgment from My hand.

The fathers must heed and obey.  This will require them to humble themselves under My mighty right hand, but those who obey will be lifted to new heights that will astonish even the best of them.

What are at stake are financial blessings, healings and miracles, salvations and wholeness, and more than the mind can conceive.

Many have cried out to Me for healing and financial breakthrough, but what they do not see are their relationship with their families are first on My list.  Warn the men, Judy, that because they are a reflection of My glory on earth, it is time to align their will to Mine.  The hour is late! It is much later than most believe.  Let it be done on earth as it is in heaven.

I Am praying for the fathers.  I Am praying for the parents. I Am praying for you. Reflect Me well.  Be who I called you to be - representatives of My love on earth.  May it be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Selah

Love,
Abba

Daniel 12:10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.

Do you see why the painful process of purification is so important?  Refining you and making you spotless is not only for the purpose of salvation.  I desire for you to be with Me and this process is important for your survival in the days to come.

Many stop at salvation and think that is enough, but if a soul does not allow the purification that comes by My Spirit, then they will not be able to see in the dark days ahead.  Behold darkness covers the earth and gross darkness on the peoples, but to those who have submitted themselves to My refining process - they will be given My keys - the keys to the Kingdom.  My glory, My light will shine through and around them.

Trumpet a call!  Remind My church that I Am not slow in My coming, but merciful and just.  There are so many destined for My Kingdom that have not yet heard or understood the Good News.  My heart is patient for them.

Watch for distractions which keep you from My purpose.

Remember, a pregnant woman cannot partake in some activities nor do the things she once did, neither can she expect to once the baby is born.  So it is with you right now.  Stay close!

I desire for you to be wise.  I desire for you to understand the keys to the Kingdom.  You will learn what they are, what they lock and what they unlock.  The wise will understand.

"When I made the earth, what do you think I set out to do?"
 
After pondering this I replied, "I'm not sure, Lord.  My first thought would be to make sons and daughters."
 
"That is exactly right.  I wanted to set up My dominion in the natural so that it could be seen by all.  I gave Satan the right to test My creation.  If you do not know that you can still trust Me when he comes with his seeds of doubt and distrust, then you cannot experience the growth I want to see in you.  If you do not come to know the truth, and that is that I love you with an everlasting love - an extravagant love, then our reign together in eternity would be tainted.  You must know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I love you and you are Mine.*
 
"This earth is full of the beauty of My creation which testifies of Me and My love for you.  But it is also full of darkness, greed, pride, fear, lying, murders and dissensions.
 
"I have given My best for you in My Son, Jesus.  He has given His best by giving you His Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit gives you His very best by revealing the Father and the Son and our intentions towards and for you.  So even though the world is full of darkness, it is also possible to tap into My light and have it pour out into the nations and peoples of the earth.
 
"Creation consistently testifies of Me.  The bird's song and flight, the trees in all their splendor, the flowers - each one a magnificent work of art, the animals that intrigue mankind, mountains that sing, rivers that roar, oceans vast and filled with worlds of their own, lakes that bring refreshing to the soul, sunlight that gives life to it all, and a universe just waiting to be explored!  This list goes on and on.
 
"Child, if people's eyes were not blinded by the prince of this world they could see and hear Me in everything around them.  They do not believe because they have, in many cases, chosen to look at what is bad, ugly, hateful, spiteful, and lying.  They choose it!  They speak it!  They revel in it!  If they would think on things that are pure and holy and good then their eyes would see and behold Me in everything they do.  Pray in the name of Jesus for the blinders to be lifted.
 
"This is My desire:
Follow Me
Love Me
Give Me glory
Give Me honor
 
"Choose each day to give your attention to My voice. Choose each day to come and sit with Me. Let Me pour into you My desires for the day - then watch it unfold!  You will be so excited when what I have shown you in prayer comes to pass in your day.  Your delight is My delight, child, your joy is My joy.
 
"I do not want you to fall into the trap of legalism.  I am not saying to make a rule or lay down a law.  I am simply saying, ?Come to Me.  Come to Me.'
 
"You know My word tells you that when you come I will give you rest.  Watch and see what I show you.  I plan to give you ideas, inventions and creative ways to fund My kingdom work.
 
"Be still, dear one, and know - KNOW - that I Am God."
 
Love,
Abba

An Exhortation from the Father

There is a time for everything.  All things that distract you from coming into My presence are temporal and fleeting.  The only thing that abides is My Kingdom.  The things you need to do will go smoother as you wait in My presence.

There is a time to wait and there is a time to act.  As you sit and wait upon Me, I will show you what to do, where to go, how to do everything you need to do.  Jesus is your example, so follow His lead.  He did not do anything unless I showed him first.  He did not say anything unless I told Him first.  So be still and know that I Am God.  Let me show you what you are to do and where you are to go, what you are to say and how you are to say it.  Let me lead you in this dance.

In the Father's love,
Judy Bauman

This word reminded me of a song He gave me two years ago.

Personal journal entry: 
 
Lord, this battle to ward-off discouragement seems to be my fight these days.  I believe your Word has shown us how to operate in our families, churches, and businesses.  When we go outside of that we open ourselves up to curses.  Lord the way I see people try to cheat one another is disheartening.  Maybe this is just the way of the world, but I have struggle such a when I see it - especially in the Body of Christ.  My heart cries out for justice!  I hate injustice God. I hate those who shame and abandon - especially children.  Do I judge the very thing I do?  Do I have a plank in my eye?  If I do, let it be removed so I can help get the speck out of my brother's eye. May righteousness and justice be the foundation of earth as it is in heaven.
 
The Lord's response:
 
When I set up the foundation of My kingdom, I set it up in perfection.  The earth is yet to be established in My perfection. 
 
You are right to examine your own heart for out of it flows the issues of life.  Many have hardened their hearts to My justice because they are wounded.  They have been disappointed so many times that they have given up and gone the way of the world.  They may love Me and call Me their Savior, God and Friend, but they so distrust their fellow man that they operate continually in survival mode.  They take whatever they can get out of others, not realizing that in cheating others - believers or not - they will bring more poverty into their lives.
 
Do not judge them for this as their lives have been traumatized.  They need encouragement to come up higher.  Remember how much I have wrestled with you to obey My voice.
 
I will open the locked doors.  I will break the chains of poverty and sickness.  Those who operate in survival mode and forget my precepts will continue to struggle.  I desire to save them from their despair, but they must be contrite in spirit and come to repentance.  They must turn from selfish ways. (See Luke 19:8-10)  Their hearts must turn to trust Me and not doubt.  Many who live in dreadful poverty have great faith, child, so strengthen that which remains.  I will set them free.
 
Stand, watch and be amazed, child.  I will make a way in the dark forest.  I will part the trees.  I will pour out from heaven such an abundance on those who obey that they will not be able to contain it.  I do so because I can trust them to give to others in need.  But I will not share My glory. 
 
Romans 12: 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

I have already given you everything
You need to fight the enemy of your soul.
You are My child,
You are My soldier,
You are My friend.

Pray to Me as Jesus prayed.
I Am His Father and
I Am your Father.

You are more than a conqueror
You have already been given the victory.
You are My righteous instrument ~ My instrument of choice.

I have given you keys.
I have given you My power and authority.
I have chosen you and I will send you in My time.

You are My diamond and you are in the process of being polished.
You need to trust Me and not your old man.
Don't trust the ways of old.

Give yourself wholly to Me and
I will give you the desires of your heart.
Trust Me, obey Me, follow Me, love Me; for I will never disappoint you.

Hello!

Last night at our home church the Lord had me play a 4 minute section of a teaching done by Bobby Conner.  It is from, "Keys to the Anointing." (Track 7)  He states that the Lord revealed to him that we are to be like the Zadok priesthood and teach the people the difference between the holy and the profane.  Bobby Conner asked the Lord a very significant question.  He asked God what was profane to Him. The Lord said, "Anything that man is doing that I did not initiate.  Profane is what is empty, worthless and without any eternal value." 

When I heard this I sensed it was not just a word for believers.  Something that is profane to God is ANYTHING that man (mankind) initiates without His leading. If I understand this correctly, this means that any decisions we make in our lives that we have not sought the counsel of the Lord; the Lord sees it as profane. 

Because of this, I sense that we are to take another look at the exhortation the Lord gave me for 2007.  This word was originally sent out in five parts, but I am sending it out now in one part for you to study it in its fullness. The Scripture references are key to understanding what the Lord is saying in this season in preparation for the harvest of the harvesters.  The Lord will no doubt speak much more to you as you read each reference along with it.  

More than ever I am convinced that we are to walk in the purity and holiness of the Lord - not out of works to try to get His love - but because of the love, adoration and devotion that pours out of our hearts toward Jesus for all He has done for us.  This has been confused in the past with the Law of Works but what I am speaking of is the Law of Love.  We must put off the old man and walk in the newness and refreshing of our King!  We must walk in the light as He is in the light and not grieve or vex the Holy Spirit.

God is looking for pioneers, He is looking for revolutionaries. He seeks those who are dissatisfied with anything that is not FULLY led by God's Holy Spirit.  He is looking for people that know THERE HAS TO BE MORE!  They know it because they read their Bible and they can plainly see there IS MORE.  The Lord is looking for the harvesters to go to the ends of the earth and become seed for the great harvest.  He is looking for those who will train this up-and-coming generation to not love their lives so much as to shrink from death, but we cannot lead the next generation in something we have not walked in ourselves.  We have got to get in step with the Lord.  We have to get into His timing - into His cadence. 

This is not some new thing; this is foundational because it is how the Lord calls us each to walk before Him.  Amen?  I pray you are blessed.

In the Father's love,

Your friend and sister,

Judy Bauman

When I give vision to a person, I give it for My purpose and My plan. It is never to exalt that person but to build My Body. When a vision is from Me you can know that it will include many people working together as the Living Stones that I have brought together for that purpose. When people of similar vision come together something electrifying happens. There is a strength that binds them together. If this is not done in My love and in My power, then it fails. Now that is not to say that anything that is successful is of Me, but I am talking about [true] kingdom work. I will take every mistake and use it for good if a person will just bow their will to Me. I do not desire for any to fail just as I do not desire any to perish. People are destroyed for lack of knowledge, child. They do not know that they do not know.

It is important as a leader to be patient with people and show them My love. It is My love that destroys [ungodly] yokes. It is My love that restores the breach. It is My love that makes you more than a conqueror! It is My love. If you have not love you are nothing but a noisy, clanging sound that bangs in My ears.

If you think that you can be more focused on your vision without including others, then you have not seen the full vision. Seek Me early. Seek Me while I can be found. Do not slumber when I call you to come and sit with Me. Choose the best and not the good. Choose to lead in My love. Choose to follow in My love. Choose to stand firm in My love. Then watch and see how I will move. You will stand amazed when you really grasp My vision. So come. Sit. See. Grasp. Run!

You sing, "There is none like You." But I tell you the truth. "There is none like you!"  I the Lord your God could search for all eternity long and find there is none like you.
 
You are unique and wonderfully made for a purpose I have purposed in My heart for this day, this hour, this season for you to come up out of your despair.  I tell you that I Am not One to leave things undone.  I Am the Author and Finisher of your faith. 
 
I Am here to heal, to restore, to bring hope and give you all the tools you need to successfully go into this next season.  The harvest for this coming season is great and you need the tools I Am giving. 
 
So stand with your hands open to receive these tools by faith.

There Is None Like You

There is none like You 
No one else can touch my heart like You do 
I could search for all eternity long 
And find there is none like You 

Your mercy flows like a river wide 
And healing comes from Your hands 
Suffering children are safe in Your arms 
There is none like You

Do you really want to know My love for you?  If this is truly your heart's desire, then you will have it.  Seeking Me is seeking the Greater.  So many are seeking but they seek many things apart from Me.  I Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  No one by any other means shall find joy - the fullness of their desires - when what they desire is outside of Me and My will for their life.

 If you seek Me you seek the best and it will in no way be taken from you.  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My Word stands forever.

 I will tell you many desire that which is contrary to My will.  I will not grant the desire of your heart if your heart is far from Me.  People have methods to ?pray' to Me, but they are often like the man who said, "Oh God, thank you that I am not a sinner like this man next to me!"   They carefully construct their prayers to sound good, but they stink in My nostrils - they reek with the stench of flesh and death.

Yes, you must go beyond yourself and truly seek Me and My desires.  Learn of Me for I Am humble of heart.  If you study and learn what I desire, you will see what to pray.  You will know what is flesh and what is Spirit.  You will be able to rightly divide between what is the truth and a lie, what is My desire and what is flesh, what serves Me and what is self-serving.

 You have to go beyond what you see.  You have to step into the realm of faith where what you do not see is more real to you than what you do see because you recognize My desire - My will.  I Am Spirit and you must worship Me in Spirit and in truth.  As soon as you do this you will be taught My desires.  As you do this you will break through the veil.  You will walk through the wall.  You will find yourself translated like Philip. I will reveal the desire of My heart if you will lay yours on the altar.

Please confirm this message:

It is My earthen vessels that I choose to pour My glory into and through.  This glory is not for you to touch or handle, but you surely are allowed to enjoy it.  As you let it flow through you, the joy of My glory will strengthen your weary heart. 

You try to carry too much, beloved.  You pray, but let Me do the carrying.  The burden I place on you is to walk with Me. My burden is easy and My burden is light, so set down the heavy backpack you are carrying and let Me pick it up.  It did not actually belong to you in the first place.

Let Me fill you with My glory and you can carry that to the nations and to the lost sheep of Israel.

Let Me consume you with My passion, My zeal and My love for you.  Open up and let Me fill you - then let it spill out onto others.

Separation

When separation comes to kill, steal and destroy the heart is often wounded beyond recognition.  Whether this separation comes from death, injury, illness, divorce, disagreements, time or space - it doesn't matter to the soul.

The death of a family member can be as devastating as a misunderstanding that estranges friends.  If it separates, it wounds.  If you come into My presence and allow Me to mold your heart, it will no longer be what it was before the wounding.  It will not be the battered mess that it is, it will be transformed into a new creation in Christ.  I will, in a sense, take a syringe and inject you with My DNA.  That is when I can shape you into Our image.  That is when I can take the earthen clay and mold it into the exact shape of My desire.

You are being changed from glory to glory and this is why, beloved, I want you to count it all joy when you face trials. Even your failures are ground up and used as the paint that I chose to use to give you color.  I Am the Potter and you are the clay!  Nothing is wasted.  Nothing, child.

So no more tears.  Dry your eyes and stand up and brush yourself off.  Know that I will shape bend and mold you, but I will do it My way and in My time.

A corporate word for 'The Barn' Gathering
Social Circle, GA, USA, 7:15pm

Taste and See

Yes child, you are here in this place to taste and see that the Lord is good.  The songs that flow from the hearts (of those gathered here) are songs that flow from My Throne of Glory.  In this you can rejoice with the angels who continually abide in My presence.  You can freely rejoice as you sense My Spirit flow into and through the hearts and minds of My beloved.

The violent praises of My children take the enemy by surprise.  He is ambushed by such as these. 

You cry for Me to come, and I tell you plainly, I Am here!  I have been walking amongst you and bring to you My peace and righteousness.  Give Me your heart - that un-molded lump of clay and let Me mold it and make it new.  Watch Me take the wounds of the past and mold them into something new.  Behold I take My holy syringe and I will penetrate your heart - I Am injecting you now with My DNA.

When the paternity test is taken all will know that you belong to your Daddy!  All will know that you look like your Daddy!  You are My heir.

The earth groans for your manifestation.  Arise!  Shine!

Let My glory be seen around and about you.  Your heart isnow full of My joy.

Child, when you look into the eyes of My heart you will only see My love and devotion towards you.  If you look for condemnation, you will not find it.  If you are feeling condemned, come.  Come look into the eyes of My heart and see yourself the way I see you.  I see you in the light of perfected love given to you through the Cross of Calvary.  My Son, Jesus, is what I see when I look at you as you are in Him.

I ask you to guard your heart for out of it flows the issues of life.  You have an enemy and he is the accuser of the brethren. So if a voice of condemnation is moving you, know that it is a voice that moves you away from My perfect love for you. Perfect love, that is to say, love that has been perfected in you, will cast out all fear.  Allow My perfect love to cast out the fear in you.  Beloved, let My love cast out that condemning voice.

Stand in My holy light and allow Me to shine through the darkness.  Let My love for you break down the walls you have built up around you.  Those walls do not protect you.  They keep you from letting Me in.  Trust Me.  Let Me be your protection. I Am your Shield and Strength.  I Am well able to keep you in My care. 

Trust Me, follow Me, invite Me to be with you where you are.  I will never forsake you.  Look into the eyes of My heart, says the Lord your God, and see that My love for you is complete. My love will see you through every season.  Look into the eyes of My heart, beloved.

This exhortation comes from the Father brooding over me for a number of days and weeks.  I have been like a woman carrying a promised child awaiting its birth.  Now the time for this has come and it has been brought forth with much labor and travail. This word is birthed out of His great and mighty love for us.  To those of you who feel that you are just barely hanging on, know that the Lord is extending special grace to you in this season. Perfect love casts out all fear, so beloved, do not grow weary in well doing as you will reap a harvest if you faint not. It is my prayer that God will strengthen your hearts and minds so that you may stand blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones. I pray you will be as a Berean and search the Scriptures. (Acts 17:11)  Because of its length I will send it to those on my list in 5 parts. 

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Judy

An Exhortation From The Father 2007 - The Year of Cadence

Part One: To My People Who Are Called By My Name:

As you enter into and proceed through 2007, I do not desire for you to make resolutions for this year, I desire for you to make a revolution.  This revolution is not to occur outside in the world, but on the inside of your heart and mind.  This word is not meant to merely impact you over just one year; it must change you for life.  I desire a revolution of purity and holiness in the people who are called by My name.  It is time to fervently seek My face.  I do not ask this of unbelievers; I ask this of you.  It is time by the power of My Spirit to utterly put to death the misdeeds of the body so that you will live.  I tell you it is time to overthrow your fleshly nature. Your flesh and all its desires are no longer to govern you.  Do not sit idle and think of ways to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.  It is time for those who call themselves Mine to wake up!  It is time to move.  The slumber that you have been in has been deep, and rousting you awake has taken much time and energy.  What will it take to get your attention? 

(See 2 Chronicles 7:14; Romans 13:11-14; Ephesians 5:13-17; Revelation 3:2, 3)

The hour has come for you to completely wake up from your slumber, because your salvation is nearer now than when you first believed. Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, put on My armor, put on My light, put on My love, put on a garment of Praise.  If you really want to see breakthrough in your life, take off the old man and deeds of darkness. Put onChrist!  My soldiers - those who are the ambassadors of My love - are lining up.  They are the ones who have been tried in My fire and have been tested in the wilderness.  They have gone through many fastings and times of consecrated prayer.  They know My voice and another they will not follow.  These are the ones I trust to carry the fire of My love for the nations and to the nations.  My love wins all battles.  I Am calling you today to be part of that army.  I Am asking you to get into formation. I Am beckoning you to war against hate with My love and forgiveness.  Blessed are the merciful for they will be shown mercy.  Each time you choose mercy over judgment you overthrow the powers of darkness.  Judge not or you will be judged.  Instead, send confusion into the camp of the enemy by forgiving offenses.  When the enemy seeks to strike at you, turn and praise and worship your God!  Confound him with your praises of victory as My people did when they were surrounded by the enemy at The Valley of Berachah.  You are more than conquerors through Christ who loves you, so go into the battle knowing that you have already won.

(See 2 Chronicles 20:1-26; Isaiah 61:3; Matthew 5:7; 7:1, 2; Luke 6:36; John 3:16; 10:4, 5, 27; Romans 8:13; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21; Galatians 3:27; Ephesians 6:10-18; Colossians 3:1-17; 2 Tim 2:4

There is a sound on the horizon, My dearly loved children, friends and soldiers.  Do you hear it?  It is the sound of My army.  It is the sound of cadence.  It is the sound of My army marching in step with Me and along side My heavenly angelic hosts. Can you hear the sound of heaven?  Can you hear the cadence in your heart?  Do you feel the rhythm beating within every fiber of your being?  This is a military like no other.  I provided for your atonement and I can provide anything you need in any situation.  This army has been given powerful weapons and has been trained to use them by My Spirit because they are spiritual weapons.  They are mighty in the pulling down of strongholds.  Take every thought captive, beloved, and make your will obey the ways of your King!  My will be done. Line up, fall in, march, follow Me. 

(See Isaiah 51:4-7; Matthew 6:10; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5; Acts 2:2

My grace has been extended in an extraordinary way to those who heeded the word and submitted their flesh to My Spirit in 2006.  Even if it were a failed attempt, I see your heart and a double measure of grace is given to you now to walk in victory. Receive it.  Receive My grace.  This is not about your keeping a set of rules.  This is about following Me, trusting Me, and seeking My counsel in every area of your life.  As you walk in step with Me in 2007 and allow Me to bring you into spiritual perfection, you will see miracles flow freely from My storeroom into the places of greatest need.  The release of My grace will be clearly seen and not hidden in a back room.  Believers and unbelievers alike will stand in awe together.  So rise up in My love and soar to new heights by My hand and My provision.  My grace is sufficient.  My power is made perfect in your weakness.

(Deuteronomy 28:2; Proverbs 3:5-8; Isaiah 52:2; Matthew24:27; 2 Corinthians 12:9)

Love,
Abba

2007 - The Year of Cadence

Part Two: My Desires for My Church

Let Me tell you what I desire.  I desire to see My beloved Church arise in unity and strength.  I desire to see My Church step in time.  I long to see you revolutionized by walking in My ways.  My ways are pure and holy and true and you will be blessed and whole and healed as you walk in them.  O rejoice at this news dear ones!  Does My word tell you that I desire to see the whole Body of Christ built up, joined and held together by every supporting ligament?  Yes!  I yearn to see you grow and built up in love.  Do not live as the unbelievers do, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the hardening of their hearts.  As it is written in Scripture:

"Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion." Hebrews 3:7, 8a

Those written of in this Scripture never entered into My rest. Do not be stubborn like they were in their disbelief.  See to it that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from Me. Instead run to Me!  Run to the Mercy Seat for this is the hour of grace.  Return to the joy of your salvation. Encourage one another every day as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness. 

(See Psalm 103:3; 133:1; John 17:23; Romans 15:5; Ephesians 4:11-18; Hebrews 3:19; 4:16)

I Am asking you to view your circumstances and the circumstances of those around you from My heavenly perspective.  Follow Jesus' example; He did nothing without seeing Me do it first.  He acknowledged that He could do nothing in Himself and taught you that you can do nothing in yourself.  Let me show you everything as I showed Him.  I want you to see what is going on around you and your world from My vantage point - from My overwatch(1).  Ask for the eyesight of an eagle. I will freely give the keen vision of an eagle to whosoever will ask Me.  I want you to be able to see afar off. Ask Me for the ointment and I will heal your eyes.  They are dimmed from having to strain and squint to see through the darkness of this world.  I have much for you to see because the enemy is advancing in unparalleled ways.  What is impossible for man is possible with God. Only believe.

(See John 5:19, 20; 6:28, 29; 14:9-14; Mark 5:36; 10:27; Revelation 3:18; 12:14)

Satan's time is short and he grows increasingly ruthless.  He desires to blind you completely by poisoning your vision.  He does not want you to see him as he advances.  He uses camouflage to trick My church.  He uses your own flesh and its desires against you with the goal to destroy you.  Be careful what you look at and bring into My temple.  You are My temple and I love you!  I tell you this to protect you and not to keep you from "fun".  While sin may seem fun for a season, you must understand that Satan's goal is to steal, kill and destroy you, and he is using your own flesh to do it.  Your carnal nature is drawn to sin, so you must war within your members and take every thought captive to make it obedient to the Lord Jesus Christ.  Remember though, Satan and his demons are not omnipresent nor can they read your mind.  Do not get into agreement with his lies.  Do not give him and his cohorts power over your life. He can only gain it if you hand it to him.  Do not assign to him what belongs to Me and that is glory.  Do not glorify him.  My church tends to speak over and over again what Satan and his demons are doing and that glorifies them; it magnifies them.  Come!  Magnify the Lord!  Wash the venom from your eyes in My Living Water.  Jesus disarmed the powers and authorities of darkness. He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the Cross.  Look at what Jesushas done to defeat them. Speak of what He has done to set you free.   Jesus came to give you life and give it to you in abundance. Glorify Him!

(See Psalm 34:3; John 5:20, 21; 8:36; 10:10; Romans 7:21-25; 2 Corinthians 10:5; Galatians 5:19-21; Colossians 2:13-15; Revelation 12:12; 14:7)

Be wise with your words and be wise in your treatment of others.  Be wise with all that you say and do.  If you followJesus' two commandments - to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind, and love your neighbor as yourself - then it will be well with your soul. This is not to say you will not suffer hardship.  You will.  That thinking is in direct conflict with My Word and is from "another gospel".  Jesus taught that tribulation would come, but that He had overcome the world. The prince of this world had nothing on Jesus, and as you are inChrist, Satan has nothing on you either.  Take joy in that knowledge!

(See Matthew 12:37; 22:36-40; 24:9-14; Luke 7:35; John 14:30; 16:33)

Love,
Abba

(1) Overwatch - The term overwatch originates in U.S. military doctrine.  In modern warfare overwatch is the state of one military vehicle supporting another unit while they are executing fire and movement tactics.  Anoverwatching unit has taken a position where it can observe the terrain ahead.   The overwatch position can especially search out enemy positions. This allows it to provide effective covering for advancing friendly units.

2007 - The Year of Cadence

Part Three:  The Meat of the Matter:

Understand that I Am the God of the universe and I Am is inviting you to My war-room.  Will you come?  This is not a time for the weak or faint of heart.  It is time for mighty men and woman of valor to rise up and take their place.  It is time to come out of the caves and advance My kingdom and My purpose.  Be careful not to have any agenda but Mine.  Your agenda will surely cause you to drift off the course of My plan. My plan is perfect.  Trust that I will assign your post, so do not try to figure out where you are to be and what you are to do, as it is up to Me to determine your position.  I will assign your duties.  I will make it plain.  If you try to place yourself or elevate your own rank in My army, it is likely that you will choose to go somewhere and do something you think sounds like the best assignment.  You must trust Me that this could be a fatal miscalculation on your part.  If you assign yourself to the post of your comfort and choosing, you will most likely be in direct opposition to My purpose and plan for your life.  I Am God of the heavenly hosts and saints.  I do know what is best for you.  Once you know what position I have called you to, march to it and go forth with confidence, not arrogance, beloved, with confidence in Me to see you through every battle and to provide your every need.  Stand alert, so if your orders change, quickly comply and move to your new post.  If you do not trust Me to command you, then who is your Lord?  Have you accepted My Son as Savior, but not made Him your Lord?  I ask you to trust your heavenly Father.  I discipline those I love.  Allow Jesus to be your King, Ruler, and Lord of your life.

(See Exodus 15:3; 1 Corinthians 12:4-14; Philippians 2:2-11; Hebrews 12:4-8, 11; 1 John 5:14; Revelation 4:1, 19:19)

Remember that the weapons that I have provided to My army are mighty in the pulling down of strongholds.  These are not natural weapons but spiritual ones because you are in a spiritual battle. However, I issue this warning: Do not pick up the weapons of your enemy or you will become like your enemy. Satan's weapons are jealousy, suspicion, gossip, envy, dissension, discord, slander, factions, contention, strife, unforgiveness, bitterness, wrath, anger, hatred and the like. These are rampant in the church and come from a spirit of pride.  Satan wants you to emulate him and I have given you the choice as to whom you will serve.  So choose wisely!  Have I not warned you in My Word that those who practice such things will not enter into My kingdom?  Do not emulate the devil. Satan prowls around and seeks to destroy you.  He plans to use the death of his servants as an excuse to wage war against the saints. Use My weapons, not the weapons of this world to disarm him and his demons. Pick up the sword of My Word and use it to demolish the evil one's plans to destroy you, your family, those you love and those to whom you are bound by My Spirit.  I will give you wisdom and skill to use it.  My Word is your sword.  Wield it only against the enemy.  Do not be found to be one that wounds a brother or sister in Christ when using My Word - your Bible.  This is a form of self-mutilation as you are all one body.   Instead, love one another deeply with the love (agape) that I give because love covers a multitude of sin. Strengthen, comfort and encourage each other with My Holy Scriptures.  Rulers, authorities, principalities and powers of darkness do not have any defense against My love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness or self-control.  When you walk in the fruit of My Spirit; when you love those who hate you and pray for those who persecute you; when you forgive grievances and bear with one another; when you refuse to allow a root of bitterness to take hold of you; when you take up your cross and follow Jesus - then you are demolishing the devil's plans.  Walk in victory, beloved!  You are known in heaven as My chosen, as My elect, and as My children.  Walk humbly before both your God and mankind; if you do, you will have great authority in and by My Spirit. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.

(See Micah 6:8; Luke 9:23-27; 14:27; 1 Corinthians 14:3; Galatians 5:19-26; Ephesians 6:17; Colossians 3:11-17; Hebrews 12:15; 2 Tim 2:24; 1 Peter 2:9-12; 4:8; 5:8, 1 John 5:2; Revelation 2:10)

This is the greatest warfare that mankind can be engaged in and I am calling you to join My army.  Will you walk in My love? If these terms of engagement are difficult for you to envision, again I encourage you to ask Me for the eye ointment to heal your vision so that you can see from My vantage point.   The heavenly view is lovely, beloved! 

 "I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may be rich; and white robes to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nakedness from being seen; and salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see.  I reprove and discipline those whom I love. Be earnest, therefore, and repent.  Listen!  I Am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear My voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you, and you with Me.  To the one who conquers I will give a place with Me on My throne, just as I Myself conquered and sat down with My Father on His throne.  Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches."  Revelation 3:18-22

Love,
Abba

2007 - The Year of Cadence

Part Four:  Revelry!  Awaken and Join the Cadence of Righteousness!

O My, beloved church, what will awaken you from your deep slumber?  Many think I desire to bring calamity to bring the world to its knees. This is not My desire.  This has never been My desire.  I Am a merciful God and calamity grieves Me.  The atonement for all sin for all time was provided for you on the Cross of Calvary.  Jesus' blood is the perfect sacrifice and no other is needed.  Great is My love!  I desire for you to be on your knees because I Am your King and out of your love and devotion towards Me.  My desire for you to bow is to confessJesus is Lord, not because a calamity came your way and you sought Me out as your last resort.  However, know this, if a calamity has brought you to Me, all of heaven rejoices with Me!  Whatever comes your way that causes you to "come to yourself" and turn to Me, then know that I will RUN to meet you.  I will fit you with a robe, a ring and shoes for your feet to walk in My ways and in My authority.

(See 1 Chronicles 21:15; Psalm 95:6; 103:8-14; Daniel 6:10; 10:10-15; Luke 15:10-24; Ephesians 5:14-17; Hebrews 9:26)

You are accepted in the Beloved, but do not think that I will take lightly the avoidance of My correction.  Everyone I love, I correct.  Every child I accept, I discipline.  Please do not lose heart in the process.  It is My desire for you to reap an abundant harvest.  So I ask you, is Jesus your Lord?  If you say yes, yet you do not walk in His teachings, then you deceive yourself into believing you are saved.  If you do not do what He said, then you do not truly believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord.  If this offends you then ask Me to search your heart.  I know you. I love you deeply and My desire is for you to walk with Me.  I will show you My truth and truth will overcome your offenses and unbelief.  You are to follow My Son, Jesus.  Followers are to follow, not to attempt to coerce Me to do what they think they want Me to do for them.  Do not take lightly the gift of grace given you.  Do not think you may do whatever you feel like doing and I will just look the other way on the Day.  My child, you must see that I Am just, I Am holy, I Am righteous.  I Am impartial.  You are misled if you think I will wink at your sin and let you pass. Be responsible for your actions and allow My correction to heal you where you are hurt.  Be holy for I Am holy!  Does this sound like a request?  I warn not to mock the blood of My Beloved Jesus shed for you on Calvary by walking in the ways of the world.  Do not mock My grace. If you operate in this spirit, I ask you to repent and receive My forgiveness.  If you refuse then you will suffer a dreadful blow. You are warned continually of this fact in Scripture and you are warned now.  ALL of My promises are "Yes" in Christ.  This is not just for the blessings, but also for the curses that I have so carefully warned you to avoid. 

(Psalm 139:23, 24; Matthew 4:19; Luke 9:62; Romans 3:22-26; 2 Corinthians 1:20; Galatians 6:7; Hebrews 12:5-7; 1Peter 1:15-22; 1 John 1:9)

See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.  For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.   Deuteronomy 30:15, 16

Many think that they are a special case and that they will be the one that will be exempt from My laws, decrees and instruction. No one is exempt from My Word.  Did I make an exception forJesus?  Was He tested in the wilderness by the enemy?  Did He seek Me to remove His cup?  Was He tempted in all things? Was He rejected and abandoned?  Do you see?  Not even Jesuswas exempt from My Word.  I would not be a just and impartial God if even one person were allowed exemption because I would be breaking My own Word.  I will not do that. I did not spare the natural branches. Consider therefore the kindness and the severity of God.

(See Matthew 26:39; Luke 4:1-13; Romans 11:19-22; 1 Peter2:21-25; 2 Peter 2:21-24)

These words that you hear may sound demanding and even harsh, but dear one, you must understand what is at stake. Thousands of souls are on the line - including yours.  You must understand the times in which you live. You live in days which are perilous and fraught with danger.  Darkness covers the earth and gross darkness on the people, but I will arise upon you and My glory will be seen around and about you if you heed My warnings and walk closely with your God.  How you choose to live has eternal consequences. 

(See Isaiah 60:1-5; Matthew 6:10; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12; 2Timothy 3:1-5; 2 Peter 3:9; 15-18)

My Son warned you clearly:

"I Am the Vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in Me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.  This is to My Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be My disciples.  As the Father has loved Me, so have I loved you. Now remain in My love."  John 15:5-9

Remain, remain, remain in My Son - remain in the Vine!  Many believe they can presume to proclaim that they love My Son, yet go about doing whatever they feel like doing.  My word is clear on that way of thinking:

What then are we to say? Should we continue in sin in order that grace may abound?  By no means! How can we who died to sin go on living in it?  Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesuswere baptized into his death? Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just asChrist was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.  Gal 6:1-4

But if your heart turns away and you do not hear, but are led astray .I declare to you today that you shall perish; you shall not live long in the land that you are crossing.This day I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live, loving the LORD your God, obeying Him, and holding fast to Him.  For the Lord is your life. 

Deuteronomy 30:17a, 18a, 19, 20a

Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness.  Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him.  I write to you, dear children, because your sins have been forgiven on account of His name.  1 John2:9-12

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless.  James 1:22, 26

Do not willfully sin beloved child.  My precious gift of perfected love was not given lightly - Jesus paid not only your bail but also served your sentence.  I tell you again, to purposefully and willfully sin, knowing I Am merciful mocks the blood that was shed for sin and God is not mocked.  The reason many mock Jesus' blood and are totally oblivious to this deadly delusion is because they refuse to be corrected by My Spirit of Truth.  I ask you to allow yourself to be corrected, beloved.  "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."  I desire for you to yield a great harvest of peaceable fruit which is My righteousness worked out in you.  Will you allow Me to show you the more excellent way?

(Please see Isaiah 61:1; Psalm 107: 1-16; Matthew 4:17; 1 Corinthians 12:31; Hebrews 12:11)

Love,
Abba

2007 - The Year of Cadence

Part Five:  The Least Shall Be Greatest

Will you allow yourself to become great in My kingdom by becoming the least?  If you will serve mankind as Jesus served, you will be given great authority in this age and the ages to come.  Do you choose to join in cadence with My will?  My army readily pledges their allegiance to Jesus.  This is not about your race, gender, age, nationality, social/spiritual/military status, education, or religious denomination.  I Am not impressed with your résumé. Those who hear Me pledge their allegiance to the Lamb of God who alone is worthy to open the scrolls.  Jesus was obedient to the Cross and it is My desire for you to walk in obedience for eternal life!   The gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it.  The army which awakens, hearkens to My voice, and marches in cadence with My will - are Mine.  He who endures to the end will be saved. 

(See Matthew 7:14; 24:13; Luke 9:48; 2 John 1:6; Ephesians 1:20-23; Galatians 3:28; Philippians 2:2, 3, 8-13; Revelation 5:9-14)

In My Word it is recorded that the disciples of Jesus were arguing as to whom among them would be most famous. My Son perceived their hearts and gave them an illustration using a child.  He sat the child next to Him and said, "Whoever welcomes this child in My name welcomes Me, and whoever welcomes Me welcomes the One who sent Me; for the least among all of you is the greatest."

(See Luke 9:46-48)

You will be known by your fruit.

What is in your heart?  How well does the Lord know you?  Do you call Jesus, "Lord"?  Beloved, examine yourself carefully for so did the five foolish virgins:

"Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.  But he replied, Truly I tell you, I do not know you." Matthew 25:11, 12  

Jesus said, "Many will say to Me, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?" Then I will tell them plainly, "I never knew you. Away from Me, you evildoers!" (Matthew 7:22

Do you see how important it is for Jesus to know you?

My Son did not tell this to His disciples for shock value. Indeed many will say this and they will be known in My kingdom as "evil-doers" for they sought their own fame and not My perfected will.  They took the bait of Satan to build their own kingdom and sought fame and fortune for themselves using the power of My Son's name.  They will not enter into the kingdom of heaven.  The five foolish virgins were shut out of the wedding banquet.  They thought calling Him "Lord" was enough.  They believed being a virgin was enough.  These five even had lamps as they waited.  However, they presumed they did not have to take the time and invest their resources to buy oil to keep their way lit until My Son's return.  You are the light of the world but you cannot come into My kingdom if you walk in darkness.  It is not My desire for any to perish.  It is My deepest desire to say the words to you, "Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!"  So follow the instructions I left to guide you into My eternal kingdom.  Walk in the light as He is in the light.  Be as the wise virgins and awaken from your slumber, trim your wick, fill your lamps with My oil, and come meet the Bridegroom. 

(See Matthew 5:14; 6:23; 7;13-20; 25:1-13; 23; 1 John 1:7)

Recall the parable of the two men who both heard the words of the Lord and one was likened to building on rock and the other on sand.  Though they each heard the words, only one of the men actually put My words into action.  He was wise. The other man heard the words but did not do them.  He was foolish. They both had harsh storms of life hit them.  Both had to endure.  However, only one stood after the storms had passedbecause he had listened and obeyed the word of the Lord.  That man was likened to one who built his house on the rock.  I Am the Rock.  You know this, but you also need to know that you must put into action what I am telling you.  I want you to stand!  If you do not walk in obedience to My word, you will be as the foolish man whose house is lost.  Would you not want to avoid losing everything?  This is My desire for you as well, dear one.  So walk in My love, walk in obedience.  Rejoice for great is your reward.

(See Deuteronomy 32:4; Matthew 7:24-27; 25:1-13, 23; Luke6:35; Philemon 1:21; 2 John 1:6)

In all these illustrations, and many others, Jesus sincerely warned the disciples of the importance of walking obedient to the word of God and by His Spirit He is now sincerely warning you.  You cannot live with one foot in the world (toying with sin) and one foot in the kingdom (seeking My heavenly rewards). Those giving Jesus lip-service will not come into thekingdom of God.  Do you not understand that I AM is capable of cutting directly through to the truth of your motivations?  I know your heart better than you do.  There is a reason it is written in the Word:

"The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?  I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve." Jeremiah 17:9, 10

Please dear Church, I am pleading with you to repent fromhidden sin and come back to Me with the total abandonment of a child in mid leap.  I WILL catch you!  Does My Word tell you to come to Me as a child?  Trust Me, I will catch you!

(See Matthew 18:1-5; deeply ponder Luke 12:1-5)

There is only obedience or disobedience.  Good intentions are not obedience.

(See Hebrews 2:1-3; 5:8-10; 1 John 3:21-24; 5:3-5; Revelations 3:3)

Turn away from that thing.  It is the thing that you seek to keep hidden and do not anyone to find out.  It is that thing that you know you spend too much time with that has become more important to you than anything - including Me.  You know what it is, because as you read this, you know what you need to turn away from.  Lay it down and turn to Me.  The hour is late.  I have already told you this many times through many voices.  I love you deeply and I have much for you to do in this year, but the first step is to destroy the thing that you spend more time with than you do Me.  As it is written, I Am a jealous God and you shall have no other gods before Me.  My desire is for you and sharing you with worldly things is intolerable for Me.  In a very real sense, you are prostituting yourself and wanting Me to bless you in it.  I cannot and I will not do that.  Please test your works.  Are they good works or My best? 

(Please read Exodus 20:3 and ponder 1 Corinthians 3:11-17)

Beloved, throughout this word there has been a great deal of correction.  I commend you for pushing through it.  If you do not hear this by the Spirit, you will hear condemnation. Remember that there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.  Any correction you have received comes from the heart of the Father who loves you more than you could ever love yourself.  I will wipe every tear from your eyes.  You are cherished.

Love,
Abba

May God's love be yours in abundance both now and forever,

Judy Bauman
