Is What God Said
By Kathy Mote
This is what God said to me, and it pushes my horizons to their limits. All you will ever see is God.
There is nothing but God, and nothing beyond God. Everything is by God and for God. He is all there is. Everything that is created is His creation, and everything He created is in Him, by Him and for Him.
is how He knows and sees everything, He is not somewhere else, nor are we. We are in Him. (That last bit stretches my brain. I think the reason is I don't fully understand what it means to be Spirit... I only understand being flesh.)
Lord Just Said Something
By Kathy Mote
The Lord just said something to me that I hear very clearly, but I'm not sure I will be able
to say it that way. I hope you will bear with me, and understand what this means. At first I thought He meant He was going to separate Himself from us, but that is not what this means. Please read carefully the entire thing. Be blessed. Be wonderfully, mightily
The Lord said, Know that I will separate Myself from you to make you. (I also hear 'I will separate My persona and identity from yours, that you might fully know Me as one person knows another
person, entering in knowing your full identity.
In other words, He is revealing to us our own identity that we might enter into proper relationship, communion and kinship with Him, being created by Him
as we are.) You are as I am making you, and your heart will know what My heart says. As your thoughts and My thoughts to come together, hearing My voice will be like rolling downhill. My thoughts will roll through you as you hear them.
Something I have been experiencing is hearing His thoughts as though they were my own. He guides me this way. He teaches me this way and there's no doubt it is Him. It is the equivalent of a wonderful hug from the inside out. He teases me, He chides
and corrects my thinking, making me hear His thoughts instead.
This is not me entering into communion with Him, it is HIM entering communion with me. Not as a servant, but as His Beloved. I love it. I
love it. I love HIM! This is what He has planned for us as we walk the Earth!

Be assured, dear friends, the devil has both barrels loaded, so be prepared to stand your ground. As I rested
in the Lord's presence this morning, a major battle was no battle at all, but proof that the Lord rules all.
After all was said and done, I said, Lord I only want to speak from Your perspective. He said,
I want you to speak what I show you from YOURS.
I thought about that for a minute and realized two things. We only know what He shows us and what He shows us is what we are to speak. No one fully knows
God. He's just too big. Our thinking is too small and limited. We should know better than to try, and respect Him, instead.
Ok, So This Is A Rant
By Kathy Mote
Ok, so this is a rant. I can't help it, it needs to be said. People talk
all the time. There are several media outlets people use to speak on. No one remains silent today. We speak to express ourselves and no one has the right to tell anyone else what they should say.
Let one prophet stand and obey the Lord's voice, saying what He told them to say, and people come out of the woodwork, demanding they rescind, retract, redact and quote a scripture to back what they say.
has the right to demand this of someone else? And of all the people who speak falsely, why are the prophets singled out? What gives any man the right to demand this of one who is obeying the living God? Do the prophets not obey His voice? By what standard
should we be judged?
Here is my point. Well, I intend to make several. When you obey the Lord you answer to the Lord. It is a sign that those who deny the prophets DO hear God's voice when they demand
proof in the scriptures, or they wouldn't challenge them like this. It is the hearer's responsibility to hear Truth for themself.
Can you imagine what is going on in the heart of one who is demanding proof of God's voice?
They have already denied Him in their heart, or they would have heard His voice. Here is the crux of the problem. They challenge the Living God because their religious thinking will not give Him proper place.
The prophets obey the Lord. That is technically what makes them a prophet, that they are sent to express His heart. They pay with their very lives to do this, and having received their calling in His presence, He made
them able to carry His Truth.
So to all who would demand a scripture of someone speaking the Truth, know you can look it up for yourself. You should be advised, however, those called before Him do not
allow you authority over them. Only He has that right. He is separating those who hear from those who don't and the warfare is becoming so intense, everything is counted as loss compared to gaining Him. What was once our humiliation is now our confidence.

Living in His presence is being shown your place in His heart, and as far beyond our imagination as this
is, being loved by Him and called His child is a precious gift. The Lord spoke to me, saying, I have turned Myself inside out to create you. You have no idea the lengths I have gone to, to bring you to where you are now.
I pondered this for days now. It is beyond my ability to understand, but my heart knows the Truth. If I were to 'turn myself inside out' to make someone (having a child is the closest I can get to understanding what He said), I would pour every
good thing in me into them.
I would make sure that they could remain with me, and I would desire for them to love me back, prospering in all things. I would love them and care for them and keep them safe.
I would care for their future, and prepare them for it. I would want them to be the best of integrity and love, my own best qualities.
So when He says He has turned Himself inside out to create us, I believe
that is what He means and more. I also think it grieves Him when we choose our own thoughts over His, not falling into His loving arms. May we turn to Him and trust Him, learning to love Him back with the love He gives us. He once told me He created the Heavens
and the Earth just to make a place for us.

Beloved, I am sent with a message. The Lord said, The key to your victory is surrender.
He is Lord of you, Lord of your heart and your calling. He is Lord of your victory over every temptation, fear and weakness, and He is Lord of your ability to obey Him. He is Lord of your life, what comes into it and what flows out of it. He is Lord of your
courage and your stability.
What He says is what you will have. His will is your portion. He is Lord of how you feel right this moment. So surrender to Him, and trust Him. Look to Him, for He is faithful.
The key to walking in all that He promised you is to surrender your heart to Him in His presence, for in His presence, there is peace, not warring, struggling or fighting.
So I Woke Up
By Kathy Mote
So I woke up at 4am, feeling the weight and dread of the hostile world around me. I couldn't sleep for the oppression trying to blanket me. I surrendered my heart to the Lord, knowing
that, come what may, I am His and He's got me.
I tried to rest, but there it was, like a spectre, the memory of the apostle Paul's thorn. Everywhere the man went, he was persecuted and rejected. Each place he stopped to
teach, the religious leaders humiliated and beat him. He wasn't welcome. Only the elect received him. That's the same boat I'm finding myself in.
Paul was dedicated to obeying the Lord, something else
we have in common. Whatever the cost, no matter how deeply people's rejection cuts us, our heart is with the Lord who called us. We have lost people, and our place among them, just being called to Him. We have made enemies, just by being different from them.
What we are challenges them.
But here is the root of the problem. It's the devil that hates us, and he is serious. With each truth that is revealed, he metes out new retaliation. As more of the Truth of
God's heart is revealed, the principality in the world is more intent on retribution. We are exempt from being harmed, and as long as we remain blameless in the Lord's presence, the enemy's reactions are beneath us.
I opened my page at 4am and found the reason for what I was feeling. The spirit of religion had retaliated with lies, hate and accusation. This came through someone I have known and loved for nearly a decade. There were no less than 30 nasty comments,
liberally sprinkled everywhere.
I was relieved of the oppressive dread as I removed them, surrendering my heart anew to the Lord in each passing moment. I was healed and given peace, my dedication to obey
made stronger and deeper. I left the desire to be babied behind as I boldly stepped up to remain faithful to Him. I will continue to obey Him, the cost not worthy of noting.
This is what it is to live
a surrendered life. The Lord's protection of those He calls is astounding, matched only by His faithfulness to enforce His will for them. The enemy will never be any more than a tool to perfect God's Kingdom, and that galls him. Today the Lord called me a
warrior. He said, Welcome to the war, kid.
