Only Me

If My people would obey My commands, if My people would annihilate other gods from their lives, and worship only Me, you would find your lives would flow much more smoothly.

Instead, you pursue relationships I do not desire for you, dreams I did not plant in your heart, and achievements of worldly status that have no Kingdom value.

My children, do you not see how  near the end is? Lay up treasure in heaven.

NOTE:  There is a man reading this, you have planned a large expenditure on something you want, or a business expansion, but the Lord has told you or shown you clearly to give that amount to some ministry and He will bless you in an area you need blessing in. He is saying if you continue in your plan and disobey Him, that what you are spending it on will be destroyed – it is another god in your hear,t and He is saying He Himself will destroy it and you will suffer loss.

Luke 12:18-21
18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

Exodus 20:3  Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Matthew 6:19-20
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

Look Carefully

Look carefully at the obstacles I have placed in your path. These have been carefully  and meticulously chosen.

I desire you would ascend to higher levels of promise with Me. I desire to use you in higher levels of ministry for Me, but you have not made yourselves ready, you are not prepared.

When you see yourself, you feel you have done well, but I see something quite different. I see darkness in your heart still, darkness that cannot accompany you on the journey forward.

My children, if you are at a standstill, look to your thoughts, for they will reveal to you the reason why. You believe it is this person or that, but the only person delaying your journey is you.

Matthew 7:3-5
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Isaiah 1:16  Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

Revelation 3:18  I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

You Say You Trust Me

My people are walking, entangled in much from the present world, and entangled in much they should not be. You are entangled in things about you in the earth, you are entangled in worries of the future. You are entangled in your past – in regret, in remembrances, in looking back, though it would be far more advantageous if you looked ahead.

My children, when will you learn to cast your cares on Me? I have told you in My Word that I will carry those burdens. I have the key to every hard problem, I have the answer to every hard question. I know the ways through and the ways out for you, if only you will learn to trust Me.

You say you trust Me with your lips, but your heart has no trust of Me. Your joy and your peace are being stolen each day, and your destinies delayed by all you have become entangled in. Seek Me for what to release, and cast the cares on Me.

Galatians 5:1  Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

1 Peter 5:7  Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Psalm 55:22  Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

Matthew 11:28-30
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Proverbs 3:5-6
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Hindrances on the Pathway to Promotion - Tests from the Life of Joseph


My people, attacks by your enemy are increasing still. They blanket the earth now, and come in every possible form. No one is immune from his attacks and the intensity of his attacks on you and everyone and everything you love will continue to increase now through the End of the Age.

You must learn to do battle if you desire to stop his attacks on you. You have two choices – suffer the attacks, or fight them. I have given you all you need to defeat them, one by one, but many of My people think there is no battle, no need to fight, or worse, no enemy.

Do not be deceived, My children. If you are deceived by his lies, you will suffer much. Those around you will suffer needlessly as well. I desire you would not be bound or injured by his attacks, but you must do battle with My Word to stop this.

Luke 10:19  Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

2 Corinthians 10:4-6
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

Ephesians 6:11-18
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

NOTE:  If there is no battle, if there is no need to fight, why did the Lord leave us weapons, and armor, and power to tread?

What Is the Enemy Attacking In Your Life?

The Lord reminded me this morning that the enemy always attacks what he fears most in us, and He said this is what has been happening in this most recent wave of attacks.

If you are suffering in this wave of attacks, you can defeat them by discerning what he is attacking.

For Examples – Find Your Gifts Below

Gift: Witnessing/Your Testimony - If you are anointed to witness for Christ, he will attack your credibility – by getting you into sin.

Gift: Intercession - If you are anointed to pray and intercede for others, he might try to distract you from prayer, cause strife with family members so you can’t focus on praying, or attack your faith in God to answer.

Gift: Teaching &/or Prophesying - If you are anointed to teach His Word or prophesy, he might distract you with financial difficulties, strife with family members, or family members getting into trouble or going through crisis. He might try to distract you from studying the Word and praying, or try to make you doubt what you hear from Him. He will attack your faith for sure.

Gift: Helps - If you are anointed to help others (the anointing of Helps), he might try to distract you by highlighting the ways you yourself are in need, or place thoughts in your mind that the people you are helping are somehow “unworthy” or helping. He might attack the sources you receive funding or other helping resources from.

Healing - He will attack your body, again and again. He will attack your faith, because faith is the very basis of this gift, and he will attack your credibility, by luring you into sin.

Gift: Pastor - If you are a Pastor, he will definitely attack your credibility by trying to entice you to sin. He will try to distract you from prayer, study, and ministering to your congregants. He will attack your funding sources and try to make you look bad to your congregants by planting judgmental thoughts in their minds.

There are many ways he can attack us, but Jesus has already defeated every single one of them. We need to find out the reasons behind his attacks so we can cancel them. Example: Is he attacking your gifts or your ministry? Is he attacking you personally, or attacking your family? You need to determine what is being attacked so you can cancel the attack itself and render it powerless by the mighty Name of Jesus. 

1 Peter 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
