You Do Not
You do not know Him by knowing scripture, that is how you know of Him. You understand the beauty spoken of Him
in scripture by knowing Him. The scriptures point to Him, every one of them. Isn't that the leap we all make, to go from knowing of Him to receiving Him to know Him, being brought into His presence? To go from knowing what scripture says to knowing Him in
He is the Truth that scripture is based on, so being alive to Him is how we understand the point of all that was spoken of Him. For having knowledge in our head does not bring Life, He does.
He is delivering many from being bound to their paper image of Him, for having loved Him from afar, they have not seen Him. He will no longer support this narrow view of Him. It will no longer suffice in the day we are in. All His Beloved must be gathered
Before the Lord Promotes Your Heart
By Kathy Mote
Before the Lord promotes your heart, He will demote your
pride. Seeing the great value of this, I am learning to be grateful for it. Seeing the price of my pride is to stand alone with it, I am learning to willingly place my pride under His feet, and be grateful to the depths of my soul that He keeps it there. That
is how He keeps me with Him.
That is how He enables me to remain, and hear Him. When He is the sole desire of my heart, He is Lord of all that I desire, for as He is, so must I be also, to be with Him.
This is what it means to cling to Him, and from our heart honor Him. This is His Spirit in us leading us to the Truth in Him, and the Truth of Him, for the Truth is Him.
See Many Having to Pass
By Kathy Mote
I see many having to pass through a narrow space right now. They are being pressed
on every side. To abide in His heart is the only way to move forward. The Lord's heart is your home, and it is the only safe place there is. There is nothing going on anywhere else that is more important. There is no other place you can abide successfully
in. To choose Him in this season is to dive into Him, cling to Him and receive His heart for you and trust Him.
The Lord said, “Do not hold onto what I would provide for you anyway. You did not make
a way for yourself, I did. You did not provide for yourself, I did. It's time to know that the provision you have been walking in is by My hand. It is time to know I am Lord of everything that concerns you. It is time to be free of all but taking My hand.
It is time to walk in abundance that only I can give you. Your deepening level of trust is your transition.”
The Lord Said
By Kathy Mote
The Lord said, “Some have made great ministries out of finding themselves, declaring themselves and loving themselves, having
many followers, but I will come and take over their pedestal, for there will be a great turnaround. I will gather in their fields of harvest. I will be heard from their pulpit. My heart will be spoken about and My love will speak out. Their empires will be
Someone Who Is Vain
By Kathy Mote
The Lord said someone who is vain and shallow is focused on themselves. They are broken and cannot see Him. They have been trying
to find themselves, validate themselves, and love themselves. And they are trying to get everyone to agree with them. But their efforts will not be fruitful, for He will not agree with them. He will visit them and seeing Him will heal them. They will be filled
with love for Him, knowing His love for them. No longer will their hearts be broken, seeking the love of man.
Being Filled With The Holy Spirit
By Kathy Mote
Being filled with the Holy Spirit puts us in the position to be closer to the Lord, more surrendered to the Lord's desires as He reveals
them to us, better able to hear and follow Him and more inclined to remain in His presence with a right heart. We follow His voice because He is Lord of our heart. Being filled with His Spirit, we are given the responsibility to be humble in His presence,
not act without Him in the world.
Religious and carnal thinking has forgotten that. Misinterpreting scripture, they have assumed to walk boldly in authority that is His. But it is wrong to assume we have
His authority because we are filled with His Spirit. Being filled, we are more able to obey Him. Our understanding does not reach as far as His mind. We are His body not His head. What we say at all times should be said in obedience to Him. We belong to Him.
The human race has gotten overripe like fruit that has hung too long on the vine. The Lord said except for those called into His presence, one with His heart, all of creation has fermented, and become drunk on power.
But His appearing will pierce every heart. Seeing Him changes your heart and your thinking, for in that instant, you are in His mighty presence. Only those who are one with Him will He gather in His arms. It will break the pride in every heart to see it.
There's a lot to His second coming that remains hidden. I sidestep a lot, saying only what I am told. I know He will make a resplendent example of those who love Him, for He will be one with them, and He is Light.
Allowing all of humanity to see His glory is how He will change everyone's heart. I know this might not be well received, especially by those who consider themselves saved, but the Lord said, Repent, that you be gathered unto Me.
I Have To Share
I have to share, yesterday was a walk through a field full of dragons. I did not enjoy the day or the warfare I encountered as I obeyed the Lord. On a day made
doubly difficult by being rejected by many brethren, I realized what I was sent to say unseated a principality, and he was very angry.
As I lay my weary head on my pillow, the Lord said to me, You are
not alone, I am with you. The warfare doesn't come against you, it is within you. You belong to Me, and you must know it. You do not answer to anyone else or take their opinion to your heart. You do not see all that I am doing, but you have to know why you
do what you are doing.
As I lay there, I thought about that. I do care that people argue with me. I don't enjoy conflict. It unsettles me. I have to know my place in Him, and it doesn't matter if anyone
else does. This means my heart belongs to Him. That takes continual surrender. I am used to the devil disagreeing with what I say, but I am not at all used to him making the effort to answer me. What the Lord is doing is unseating the devil, yet this is nothing
to my heart as I stand before Him.
Evidently, this principality is in charge of seeing to it that the whole of Christiandom realizes the Bible is Sacred and to be worshipped,
but hearing the Lord is not our business. I disagree on both counts. This thinking is pagan religion. Hearing the Lord in living communion with Him is the point of everything written. Being filled with the fullness of His heart in His presence is His desire
for us as His children. That is how He is raising us.
God's promise to bring us to Him is powerful because He is present to fulfill it. He is Life and being brought to Life
is being awakened to Him in His presence. He told me He made butterflies to illustrate this. The caterpillar has no concept of flying until it is a butterfly. It crawls and crawls until it is too tired to go any further, then it spins a chrysalis to rest in,
and emerges as a butterfly. Great illustration of what is to come and what we are reading about.
So this is what I understand the promise to be. We are His creation and He
isn't finished making us all we will be in His presence. He is breathing Life into us and no act of reading or believing or speaking on our part can compete with His power to raise us in His presence, our hearts made right with Him. Time to put Him above His
promise and stand in His presence, if we want to honor Him as Who He is.
