The Lord Said

By Kathy Mote

 

 

 

The Lord said before His return, people will react to what is revealed of Him exactly the same way they reacted to Noah when he warned them of what was to come. Then He will appear suddenly before them...

If One Man Stands To Say The Truth

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The Lord said, “If one man stands to say the Truth and ten thousand rise to say, Amen, that man may rejoice over the ten thousand, but I rejoice over him! You are not here to convince anyone of the Truth, you are to obey it.”

 

The Lord taught me something about obeying Him that I would like to share. At some point, you will find that it is impossible without surrender. God's heart and nature is beyond us. We cannot imagine His strength, His power or His nature. So, as we are, becoming one with Him by a simple act we are able to choose is not possible.

 

We cannot choose to be as He is, He is that far above us. We cannot become what we cannot perceive in our weakness. We cannot know His heart unless He reveals it. To be like Him, we have to be changed by Him. On our own, we have no power to do this.

 

I said to Him, Lord, You are so good, as I was shown more of His nature, love and wisdom. He said, How would you know what 'good' is? How would you measure goodness? (By my own heart was my answer.)

 

As He takes me deeper in His heart, to stand before Him and obey Him as I am is beyond me. This is beyond 'doing' what He says, it is 'being' what He says and it is beyond my ability to comply. To obey Him is to be as He is, and that requires knowing Him as I am known by Him, and that is His power and presence in me.

 

In that moment I stopped trying to understand myself or my place in Him to obey Him. I learned a far deeper measure of the terrible, wonderful undoing of pride and self we call surrender. If we are the work of His hands, then we must learn to truly, deeply trust Him to bring us to Him, and stop trying to lead ourselves. Obeying is trusting.

Our Ability to Understand

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Our ability to understand God's promise is limited by what we are and what we have seen. We are... human. He is God. We were fashioned after Him, but he is going to transform us, give us bodies that are not flesh, and gather us unto Him. I cannot imagine how this will be, I can only describe what I was shown in multiple visions.

 

We sparkled like gems and reflected His Light. He is not flesh, He is Spirit, and we are going home to Him, changed to be as He is, a reflection of Him totally in tune with Him. This is what He has always intended for us, and what He means by changed. He has said many times He is not done creating us as He knits us together with Him.

You Are Not Going to Understand

By Kathy Mote

 

 

You are not going to understand in your mind the Life He will bring to your spirit man. You will barely be able to describe it after you are changed and this is something He has not done yet. The Holy Spirit is a mere promise of this. He will not quote scripture at you to heal you, He will give eternal Life to you and you will be transformed and become one with Him.

 

Like the caterpillar who has no concept of the beauty it will become, we have no concept of what we will be when He is done. He told me He created butterflies to be an example of the change we will go through. Just a point of reference. "Alive" is the distinction of His Spirit. Flesh cannot walk in it.

I Have a Word

By Kathy Mote

 

 

I have a word for someone who feels like a 'hot mess'. The Lord said, “You are surrendering what I ask you to give Me. You are not picking promises and becoming what you desire to be as you surrender to Me, you are entering into covenant to become My desire for you! The reason you continually feel 'undone' is I am not finished bringing change to your heart! With every part of who you are you 'give' Me, you declare your trust. This is My covenant fulfilled in you, that My full desire will be seen in you. A life for a Life was what I offered you. Remember you are not 'making' you, I AM Author and Finisher of all that is in you. What I am making of you has gone beyond your ability to choose. For what you have never seen you could never choose.”

Even if You Did Fully Understand

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Even if you did fully understand the Life power of the living God who created you, and even if you did completely comprehend His promise of eternal Life and how it changes you, and even if you could grasp the meaning of the covenant you are called to live in by receiving Him, all the promises in the Bible and all that He intends to fulfill isn't something you can transform yourself into. The new creature He intends to make you into is said to be something you cannot imagine in the scriptures you read.

 

All I have been saying is He is the powerful God that made those promises in His Word, and it is by His living Word (Jesus) they will be fulfilled. He will do this by making us one with Him. No one will do this by reading it. His Word is His promise, and it is time to give it and Him proper respect. It points us to Him, and tells us to trust Him. Several have been offended with me for putting down the importance of the Bible. What I have been saying is we don't bring it to pass! The very idea is disrespectful to Him. He's the only One who can!

Some People

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Some people are in the place to know of Him by reading the Word. But this limits Him by how much of the Bible they can understand. He is the living God and that's hard to explain to the natural mind.

 

The leap the human mind must take to go from carnal, physical understanding to being made spiritually alive in Him is like jumping over the Grand Canyon. I've tried to describe LIFE. It's impossible to do. The Lord showed me a wooden building block and said, Go build a butterfly with that. I couldn't if I tried. If I could what would be the point. He wakes you up and speaks to you to bring you into His presence.

 

When He speaks to your heart, there is no question where you are. I have to ask those who are afraid to look up, when Jesus comes again, will you deny Him because your only knowledge of Him is in your head? Will you tell Him He's not who He is because He's not who you think He is? Will He measure up to your understanding of Him? Or will you know Him as you are known by Him, heart to heart...at some point He will invite you to make the leap.

I Have Never

By Kathy Mote

 

 

I have never liked the phrase 'Blind Obedience,' but the day has come to use it. It is the perfect description of where we are and what we are doing in Him. Our obedience is the expression of His devotion given back to Him, and it is blind to everything else but Him.

 

We have no reward but Him and for right now, it is enough. Soon we will see that it taught us to remain in His presence when His glory is poured out. I keep seeing it, so I keep saying it...something wonderful is going to happen right where we stand. Something so wonderful, it has never been dreamed of.
