RIGHT STANDING WITH THE FATHER

By Yolanda Ballard

 

 

 

 

In the deep recesses of your heart, there is a place, a secret place, that no one knows about except Me.  In that place I want you to dwell, to meet with Me.  Be still and know Me and love Me, depend on Me, and trust Me for I know what it will take for you to become who I called you to be, to be Me in the flesh where I am able to live My life through you.

 

You are to be My yielded vessel of peace, joy, and righteousness.  No more are you to serve vainglory as your taskmaster to earn My love and acceptance but to just accept that truly you are My son. You have been trying to earn My love when all you needed to do is to just receive it.

 

This is beyond the time when I called My people to perform acts of being under the Law.  This is the time of My great grace and mercy being poured out upon you.  So many are being deceived that all they needed to do is to perform works of righteousness to be right with Me when I gave My blood that you would have right standing with My love.  To be right with Me all you need to do is to accept that you are My son and receive My love and all that I’ve done at Calvary.  You are a joint heir with Me with the Father.

 

This is the day I am pouring out My glory upon My true sons, the yielded ones who have given their lives to be one of sacrifice, a living sacrifice that I can live My life through.  Yes, be still and know Me and love Me and trust Me.  No matter what you experience in the natural know that it will all work for your good in conforming you into My image.

Honor, Order, and Glory Are Moving Profoundly

By Russ Walden

 

 

The Father says today, honor, order, and glory are moving profoundly into your life and situation.  The chains of man’s opinion are now broken, and My Spirit is launching you into your full destiny in Me.  Others will not agree or understand, but why seek the honor that comes from man rather than the honor that comes from My throne only?  You cannot be a social climber and expect to ascend in Me at the same time, says the Father.  My Kingdom does not lend itself well to popularity contests or fashion statements.  Acceptance in My counsel is about being a trendsetter and not following the trends of the day.  Many who look at your life and the decisions you make will say, “If it were me, I wouldn’t do it that way.”  You cannot answer them or concern yourself with their insistence that you defer to their influence.

 

I have called you to follow My voice, says the Father.  This can and will often be a solitary experience.  You will look around at times and say, “I wish I had some company in this thing you have called me to do, Father.”  To that statement, I reply that you cannot be on the leading edge of My purposes and expect to find yourself surrounded by a crowd of well-wishers.  Onlookers are watching, says the Father.  They are in the cloud of witnesses that have gone before you.  They are cheering you on from the bleachers of heaven.  The stakes are eternal, and the prize before you is an incorruptible crown.  I have called many to step out and boldly lead this day.  Only a few have allowed themselves to be chosen. 

 

Be faithful to the choosing as well as the calling, says the Father.  Look not to the right or the left.  I will show you how to take care of the little details that could impede your progress.  I will give you access to the grace that shields you from the emotional fallout of the rejection and mockery of those who do not respect you because they do not respect themselves.  You cannot listen to your critics, says the Father.  You cannot listen to My voice on the one hand and the voices of the naysayers and adversaries at the same time.  Make a choice today to sequester your hearing to My voice alone.  It is My voice alone that will make all the difference.

FIRE BY NIGHT

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

 

   

 "Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]

 

         ...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB 

                                                     

 

      

TRUE LOVE IN THE KINGDOM

 

                                                             [part 1 of 2]

 

"true" - conforming to reality or fact; not false; real; genuine; authentic;

 

Words of Prophecy

 

*       If I am NOT in it then "it" is NOT Love!

 

*       The Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of Love] empowers ALL true Covenant-relationship - both with Me and with others in the Body.

 

        ...."the love of God [the Father] has been poured out within our hearts [inner man] through the Holy Spirit who was given to us".... Romans 5:5 NASB

 

        ...."Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. It is not conceited [arrogant and inflated with pride]; it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love [God's love in us] does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]. It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]".... 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a The Amplified Translation.

 

        It is certain that in any given situation one will either be found seeing [discerning] things through the Father's eyes [the eyes of Love]or through the eyes of their "own"understanding [with a lot of "help" from the Enemy] depending on their present state of heart [I am talking about Christians now]. It must be clearly understood once and for all that Divine Love is completely different to "human [soulish] love" [I do not even like to use that expression as, in reality, there is NO such thing as true Love apart from God - for He IS Love {1 John 4:16}]. When one is truly operating in Divine Love, "self" doesn't even come into the picture, let alone be taken account of in any way. "Human love" is base and self-serving and a counterfeit of the real thing - regardless of how good it may "look" or "feel".

 

        Unfortunately, this "counterfeit love" can be a VERY powerful force - one that, up until this time, has continued to both influence and control vast multitudes of God's people throughout the earth [for, again, in reality, what does NOT issue forth from divine Love issues forth from a "soulish {sense-ruled} love" that is incapable of loving - in the true meaning of the word]. Even "good-intentioned" words and actions can spring from what, in reality, is just soulish emotion ["human love"] - the spontaneous fruit of which is ALWAYS "self-serving". The worst part is that when one speaks and acts from a root of soulish emotion [human "love"] they - without fail - believe that they are not only "loving" others but also pleasing God [which is NEVER the case - for it is ONLY faith {which works through divine Love} that pleases Him] [Hebrews 11:6].

 

        When one is operating in divine Love, the power of the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of Love] flowing out of them [consciously or unconsciously] will ALWAYS have a direct influence [bless, change or confront {convict} - depending on the state of the hearts before them] on the environment they are in. For divine Love NEVER seeks its own but, rather, the Father's "best" [whatever that may turn out to be] for all those who are led across their path.

 

        ...."There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown [complete, perfect] love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror!".... 1 John 4:18a The Amplified Translation

 

                                                        to be continued

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You  that You have raised us up a people who have a deep and abiding revelation of Your great Love for us - a people who refuse to be a partaker of the "counterfeit {human} love" that is the spontaneous fruit of a "sense-ruled" mind and self-serving heart. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
