Living in the Dark Shadows
The Word helps in casting down vain imaginations that exhalt itself above the knowledge of the Lord. 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. To use a reading plan, just visit the daily reading page to see your daily reading.

The Lord Said
By Kathy Mote
The Lord said, “Because there's nothing of your life you will not give, there's nothing of
My love I will not fulfill.”
How Blind to Him
By Kathy Mote
How blind to Him would one have to be to think His love is something
to war and fight to receive. How sad that some love to hate so much that they hate to love. Oh, how deep our need is for Him that we cannot know Him without Him. No wonder He saw us and felt such a tender mercy. That is what we need. In all our life, it is
the most tender seed that brings us to Him.
In A Simple Vision
By Kathy Mote
In a simple vision that gives me joy to see, I see the Lord spin around with His Beloved in His arms. The look on His face as He holds her in His
arms is a cross between laughing and weeping with joy. His love for her has made her perfect for Him. He is beyond joy as He beholds how perfect she is. She has given Him her heart and every desire in it. She is filled with His joy as He has His way in her
She withholds nothing from Him and His joy is filling her with His perfect love. By it He will lift her above all things but Him. This perfect love loves nothing but Him. It is pure, and because of it all
the world will see Him. That love is the reason her life was given to her, to give back to Him. Finally He has all that He wants, the one He loves loving Him with a perfect love. Now His joy will be known in all the Earth, that His Beloved is made perfect.
He is Coming Again
By Kathy Mote
He is coming again, and we cannot imagine how that will be. Do yourself a favor. Don't imagine
it will be as it has always been. Don't put Him in a box. That is religion, and He won't fit.
There Are People Who See Beyond
By Kathy Mote
There are people who see beyond the mundane things of this life. They see deeper
than what's on the surface. They see the Lord because He has made them aware of Him. They hear His voice because He has called their name and they belong to Him unlike any have ever belonged to Him. They are His remnant, and they are pioneers in walking with
Him this way. They are becoming one with Him.
He has called them deeper for a very important purpose, which He alone can fulfill in them. They are the equivalent of prophets, yet they are not sent with His message,
they are His message, and His purpose lives in them. His presence goes with them as He walks with them. His coming will change all the Earth. At His appearing nothing will be the same again. There are some things you do not come back from, and the knowledge
of Him is the height of them.
His presence is a standard that rises above all that is not of Him. What a joy it will be as all of His creation receives Him. What a revelation it will be as the knowledge of Him reveals that everything is
In This Hour
By Kathy Mote
In this hour I am realizing three things
that are a reality for those called to see His purpose fulfilled in their life:
The way things are now are not the way they will be when the Lord is finished with them. The Lord is not finished positioning you,
and He did not forget His own will where your life is concerned. It is very important to Him.
Trusting Him means you do not have to defend yourself, or feel defensive, or angry, or afraid, or be concerned with
what is about to take place in your life. It isn't up to anyone but Him.
Your surrendered heart is both His invitation and how you enter in and rest in His will as He brings it to pass. You are called to Him,
part of what He is doing which is something very big, and your surrender is your consent, even though you don't fully understand. Much of the travail that has gone on in your heart was His Spirit establishing His will in the Earth.
God’s Will and Timing
By Kathy Mote
God's will and timing in your life are corporate. What He is doing in your life and
where He is bringing you is merging with what He is doing in the Earth. Your life reflects being prepared for His return.
The Mighty Army

Anointing Comes at a Cost
I felt this so strong to share this morning as the anointing is precious.
The anointing comes at a cost. So many times we see people
who talk the talk, but never walk the walk.
The fruits are just not there. You cannot cling to the world and hold on to the coat-tail of Jesus too. We are in a time not to play games or sugar coat
anything, but just be real!
As you get stronger with the anointing in your life, never forget that the presence of sin in your life, will make you and your words like, that of any other man before the people.
Samson for example, was strong and anointed; he had that call upon his life, but the presence of the words of a sinful woman in his life, made him like every other human being.
scriptures says about how Delilah mistreated Samson:
“And when she pressed him day after day with her words and urged him, he was vexed to death. Then he told her all his mind and said to her, “A
razor has never come upon my head, for I have been a Nazarite to God from my birth. If I am shaved, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak and be like any other man.”
And when Delilah
saw that he had told her all his mind, she went and called for the Philistine lords, saying, “Come up this once, for he has told me all he knows.”
Then the Philistine lords came up to her and brought
the money in their hands,” Judges 16:16-18 AMPC.
You can see how mere words can transform a strong and anointed man, into an ordinary human being. Delilah pressed Samson with words over
and over again, until he gave in to her pressure. Samson gave in to her words.
Words made a powerful man to become powerless. It is just as the word of God can build up the anointing over your life.
You carry that mission upon your life but if there is sin in your camp, it renders it ineffective and powerless.
We are to be the salt and light of this world.
The words of men can also lead you into temptation, causing you to start living like the ordinary people around you.
When you find yourself reacting to issues around you, with the same words of the unsaved
people around you, remember that “... sin is at the door. And its desire is for you (your soul), but you should rule over it.” (Genesis 4:7).
Sin or unrighteousness will adversely affect your
There is a shake up coming for a wake up!
The Mighty Army
“Before them — fire devours.
Behind them — a flame blazes. Nothing will escape them.
With a noise like that of chariots, they leap over the mountaintops, like a crackling fire consuming stubble.
They are my Mighty Army drawn for battle. They charge like warriors; they scale the walls like soldiers. They all march in line, not swerving from their course.
They are not distracted as
each marches straight ahead. They plunge through defenses without breaking their ranks.
They rush upon the city; they run along the walls. They climb into the houses; like thieves that enter through
Before them the earth shakes, the sky trembles, and I, The LORD, thunders at the head of this army and you are my mighty warriors; with forces that are beyond number, and mighty are those who obey
Move and advance Soldiers of God! Sometimes your only available transportation is a leap of faith!

Vision Will Speak In Your Favor
By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua
I heard, “Now, the Vision will speak in your favor.”
Yes, Gleanings from the Book of Galatians.
We saw from our last discussion, that Christ profits you nothing, when you go back to the of circumcision.
we hear the apostle continue;
“Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by The Law; ye are fallen from grace,” Galatians 5:4.
“Christ is become of no effect unto you….” The effect of the Cross, the power of the Grace of God, the riches of the life of Christ are nullified in your life. The advantage of knowing the savior is completely abrogated
in your life.
But why? “Whosoever of you is justified by The Law…..”
Not as though anyone could! For by The Law, there shall no flesh
be justified before God.
The meaning then is this, if you seek to be justified by the works of The Law, and by your invalid estimation, reckon yourself to be righteous before God by it. Christ is completely
of no advantage to you. You render him ineffective in your life.
And then we hear, “Ye are fallen from grace…”
Fallen from Grace? I
thought The Law was higher than the Grace of God!
Oh grace, is the higher life of the Christian. You are born from above and not from earthly Sinai. A lot of people make it look as though The Law is
the higher standard of life, and people are looking for an excuse to live under the Grace of God.
Going back to the works of The Law, is living your higher spiritual life, down to the mundane. Leaving your
heavenly seat with Christ as the son of his love, reigning in life with him, to where you fall down to the earth and are try to rich up to heaven to bring Christ down by your works.
A very bad picture if you would
Don’t be like the fallen angel. You are already a child of God, a partaker of the divine nature. An heir of God, an heir of The Kingdom, full of God’s Wisdom and Power.
You cannot be stopped; you are the light of the world; you are a city set upon the hill that cannot be hidden.
If I was not a child of God myself, I won’t lie to you,
I wouldn’t have helped, but envied you all my life.
You are made blameless, spotless and predestined for greatness in Christ.
See you tomorrow….
In an exciting encounter with The LORD which looked as though a movie I had seen before, I saw a child of God in a race competition, I saw him run so well with the opponent. But it was quite a tight race.
Then as they approached the finish line, this child of God and his opponent were at the same pace, side by side, same speed it looked as though it would be a tie as they crossed the finish line.
After the race, there was a waiting time for the announcement of the winner, as the officials were keenly observing the race.
I saw this Child of God, not knowing the outcome but sensing it just has to
be him, waiting and looking expectantly at what the officials would announce.
It was a shock though, but as the announcements were made. I saw this Child of God jump up with joyous celebration, for it was
judged to his favor! He had won the race!
I was led to;
“And The LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he
may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry,” Habakkuk 2:2-3.
Then The LORD said, “My dearly loved one, know that you are in My Will, and have been running with My Vision upon your life.
It has been hard I know, but you have been strong and unrelenting in
the race in the face of opposing forces.
I know It is your greatest desire to see the fulfillment of My Vision upon you. You have crossed the finish line, now is the appointed time.
You are at the end and now, the vision will speak in your favor and not lie. Though it tarry, wait for it, having a confident expectation of good, for it is now coming to pass and will no longer tarry.”
Blessings in Christ,

Boomers and White Hairs Arise!
By Beverly Juelsgaard-Fischer
“WATCH ME, change the world! Wait and see as it goes before you.
For, I AM changing all that is about you and more. Mountains, streams, rivers, and land forms are about to change even before your eyes, as they haven’t changed in thousands of years.
For My Time is upon you. Heaven is touching earth, even now. Do you feel it in the atmosphere around you?
I have released more angels to earth, than you can count, to join with man in the
fight for My Kingdom on earth.
Are you ready? Have you prayed unceasingly?
For it will take a lot of that and knowing Me, better than you ever have. I
know, you keep thinking this is for after you are gone and it’s for the next generation.
But I tell you, through all the violence, murder, death, destruction, man-made viruses and more you have entered into
World War 3, without realizing it.
A new kind of war that hits on all fronts and takes the lives of people of all ages, not just those on the physical front lines of war, in a country far, far away.
You never thought World War 3 would happen while you were still sitting at home, but here it is, literally in your living room, or should I say your whole house, just in a different form than what you expected?
I know, you never thought you’d be fighting someone just to get a roll of toilet paper either, right?
Life is always exciting and changing.
Transition is too, and that’s what’s occurring now.
Not exactly how you pictured it would be in your mind’s eye?
thought you’d already be raptured? Oh well, I hope you are ready for the ride of your life. For truly many will think they are on a roller coaster of a ride, while their feet are still on the ground.
Up and down and all around, will describe much that will happen in the days ahead, especially for those receiving consequences for their thoughts, words, and actions!
HA! You thought I’d forgotten.
Too bad, so sad, I always remember everything, except when someone repents, then that cleans their slate!
Rise up My Baby Boomers (born 1946–1964; 74-56 years young) and white hairs (75+ years young)!
Now is your time to rise and shine, for your day has come and so has My Light come upon you! (Isaiah 60:1-2; Isaiah 40:31; Daniel 12:3)
It is time for you to seek Me, as never before,
for I hold the truth, strategies, and understanding that is needed for the days ahead and you hold The Keys to this Treasure of Revelation.
For it is your Wisdom, Knowledge, Understanding, and Experience with
Me, that the enemy continues to seek to destroy.
Death threats against you are coming from the pits of hell. The enemy is highly threatened by you and your obedience to Me, with My strategies, that you employ
to overcome and defeat him.
He knows many of you are as pure gold to Me, as your value is immeasurable in the heavenly realms and cannot be contained!
You, who were
thought to be useless, harmless, and worthless to many on earth. Who in their pride, thought they would be the ‘chosen ones‘ to do battle and overcome the enemy during this time.
But they are
wrong. Do not listen to the voice and lies of the enemy. Do not lie down. Do not give up! Stand, for Me and My Righteousness, My Truth and Justice. Stand, as you never have before!
shine for My Light is upon you! A new day is dawning and you are leading the foray into the kingdom of darkness.
You are badly needed in this hour. Stand up. Take your battle stance and armament.
Let My Voice and Heart come forth from you to fight the battle, that rages before this nation and the world.
Let My Truth, Righteousness, and Justice prevail and overcome the enemy within and without to truly
gain My Freedom for all.
Let the ‘Shout of The LORD’ be heard (Joshua 6:5) over the world! Let My Shofars blow as in the days of Joshua at Jericho and let the walls of lies, deceit, division,
lawlessness, anarchy, rebellion, perversion, injustice, witchcraft, death, and destruction fall, just as the walls of Jericho fell for the people of God, in their obedience to His commands.
For My Time is upon
you. My Time for Truth, Righteousness, Justice, Unity, Peace, Obedience to Me and My Laws, My Freedom, Holiness, and life to prevail and overcome over My World.
My Kingdom come, My Will be done on earth
as it is in Heaven.
I come quickly. Be ready.”
“ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you — rise to
a new life!] Shine (be radiant with the glory of the LORD), for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you! [Zechariah 8:23] 2 For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the LORD
shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. [Isaiah 60:19-22; Malachi 4:2; Revelations 21:2,3]” Isaiah 60:1-2 AMP emphasis added.
those who wait for the LORD [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and
not faint or become tired. [Hebrews 12:1-3]” Isaiah 40:31 AMP emphasis added.
“Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness
like the stars forever and ever,” Daniel 12:3.
“Then they are to blow a long blast on the shofars. On hearing the sound of the shofars, all the people are to shout as loudly as they
can; and the wall of the city will fall down flat. Then the people are to go up into the city, each one straight from where he stands,” Joshua 6:5 CJB.
God Bless You!
He Will Not Leave You Comfortless
By Deborah Waldron
“The God who bends down to us; Weeping and Healing are in His Presence.”
I have learned some things this past week.
When we are down, when we feel weak and helpless, this is when we feel God’s Presence the most.
And though things don’t always happen the way we want them to, we keep trusting our Father to work them
out His way.
When I was in the hospital and woke up from the procedure I had, I felt like weeping, even though I was not really in pain.
This feeling continued throughout
the day. And I asked Father why this was. And He said, “Because I was standing beside you, holding your hand.”
Oh sisters and brothers, when you felt like weeping and you didn’t know
why, Jesus was standing right beside you! Isn’t He wonderful?
Oh yes. Reach out your hand now, no matter what you are going through, He will help you and bring you THROUGH it.” ❤
“Beloved. When you feel the most helpless, know that I AM your Helper. I AM your Abba Father.
You are never alone, My Child. I AM He who comes to your
side. I AM closer than the shade at your right hand. I AM not in some far away galaxy. Oh no, Little One.
I promised to be with you always, even unto the end of the age. I came as Emmanuel,
God with you. I AM a personal God, your Abba Daddy who cares for you, comforts you, keeps you.
I will not let you go. I AM your Savior. I AM He who bends down to you in your lowest moments.
The Word became flesh and dwelt among you.
I AM your Elder Brother. I AM with you through the good times and bad. By My Spirit, I AM with you wherever you go. The Holy Spirit is a Person, Beloved.
I AM not a force or a feeling.
We are One. I AM your GOOD GOOD Father. When you go through hard times, do not run away in despair, but run to Me.
I AM always here beside you to catch you and hug you and hold you and bring you back to LIFE and LIFE abundantly. Yes, this is who your God is.
Many have tried to lead My people astray by religious doctrines.
But Grace and Truth came through Jesus Christ. Reach out to Me, Beloved. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
I will manifest Myself to you and you shall feel Me with you and healing
shall manifest. For in My Presence is fullness of joy; at My right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I AM your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will
help you, I will uphold you with My Righteous Right Hand.”
BENDS DOWN : Strong’s Hebrew H5186: to stretch out, extend, spread out, turn, incline, bend, bow, offer, to hold out as a hand
“Because He bends down to listen, as long as I have breath I will call on Him,” Psalm 116:2.
“And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you
another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever; even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees Him not, neither knows Him: but ye know Him; for He dwells with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless:
I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world sees me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in My Father, and ye in Me, and I in you. He that hath my commandments, and keeps
them, he it is that loves me: and he that loves me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to Him,” John 14:16-21.
“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not
dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10.
“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence
is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore,” Psalm 16:11.

You Are Unique and Special
By June Sheltrown
“Don’t allow the negative opinions of others define you or mar the perception that you have of yourself,” says The LORD.
“They may try to make you feel useless and unimportant, but that is not coming from ME. You are not only important, but essential to Me in My Kingdom.
“I have made you unique and special.
No one can fit in the place that I have prepared for you. I have need of you and formed you for a purpose,” says The LORD.
“Your position in Me is as unique as I have created you to be,”
says The LORD.
“Do not try to be like someone else. I have given you gifts and abilities and a position that is perfect and productive that no one else can do and no one can replace you.
“Just fulfill the assignments that I give you as I empower and equip you to complete, and be faithful. Your work is valuable, and I will reward all of your labor of love that you do unto Me for My Kingdom,”
says The LORD.

Autumn Evening Light
By Mary Lindow
Wherever there is darkness in our nation or in the world at
large, Christ has commanded us to let our light shine before men, to use whatever means we have at our disposal to relieve the suffering of others and drive out the darkness that wraps around the lives of so many.
are to let the light of Christ shine through us so that the darkness of despair and hopelessness might be cleared out and banished! WOW!
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. He who follows me
will not walk in the darkness,” (John 8:12).
The prophecies of the Old Testament have been fulfilled! What an impact Christ the light has had on the darkness in our lives and in the world!
Jesus IS the Light! This light exposes those dark private corners of our lives that we prefer to keep hidden.
Everything is not as neat and tidy as we thought.
There is a mess that needs to be cleaned up, and even though we have tried to hide the mess in the darkest and most private corner of our lives, the light of Jesus has shown us that there is dirt piled up there that needs cleaning out.
LIKE WHAT? (So glad you asked!)
Our temptations and secret sins,
those faults that we would prefer not to admit to,
the poor way
we have treated the people we love,
the selfish attitude that we have nurtured,
the times we have preferred to look the other way — rather than offer a helping hand.
The Light, Jesus, has come
TO the world:
Think about that great Christmas Song: “Joy to the World! The Lord IS come! LET EARTH… receive… Her KING!”
to bring condemnation, but to bring salvation,
Not to rub our noses in the dirt of those dark corners,
But to sweep them out, to bring healing and reconciliation.
This light is freely yours.
Bask in the beauty and warmth of the sun – the Son of God.”
Jesus is the real light, the genuine light who changes things.
He is forgiveness.
He is hope.
He is encouragement.
He is a word of love.
He is strength.
He is what you need to lighten your personal darkness.
He is light to every person who has need of super-human strength to see through the darkness of trouble and sickness.
He is the light who guides us along life’s journey when we have more questions than we have answers.
He is the light that dispels the darkness of guilt with his forgiveness and the darkness of fear when we take our last breath. He is the light of life, eternal life.
You have probably heard the words
of this worship song somewhere. Meditate on the lyrics /words and maybe sing this in your heart right now and give thanks to the Light of the World for revealing His love and light into you heart!
I Am To Worship” — ©Hillsong
“Light of the world,
You stepped down into darkness.
Opened my eyes, let me see.
Beauty that made
Hope of a life spend with you.
Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that you’re my god.
All together worthy.
All together wonderful to me.”
In His Shadow,
” THE MESSENGER ” ~ Mary Lindow
