We know Him by what He is doing in our heart. We know Him by what He speaks to us as He comforts our heart.
We know Him no other way than by His presence as He makes Himself known to our heart. We could have been standing there as He hung on the cross, but that is not knowing Him.
And so it was for the religious
leaders of that day. They looked right at Him, the proof of God's love for them being poured out, yet they didn't accept Him in their own heart. They instead trusted their own opinion and thoughts. They did not accept God's love for them God's way. The Father
said Christ is His Word, His decree, and the declaration of His heart for us. Christ continually expresses the love, the law and the order of our Father's heart.
This is the choice we all must make in
our heart, (and we make that choice almost continuously), to open our heart to Him and trust Him as we hear His voice. He continuously calls us to Him. He said His sheep (those who follow Him) know, trust and follow His voice. We know His voice, which heals
our heart as He brings us to our Father's heart. His voice cannot be impostered or denied as He is Lord in us.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be
restrained; where there is knowledge, it will be dismissed. When He comes again, we will have no need of them. For we know in part and we prophesy in part until all of creation is perfected.
When I was
a child, I talked like a child, thought like a child and reasoned like a child, not yet made able to fully see Him or the point of all that He does. When I became a man, I set aside childish ways, views and values, and completely surrendered to Him.
Until He comes, we see but a dim reflection of His intentions, as if we were looking at an image in a mirror, we see more of ourselves than we do Him; but when Jesus is done fulfilling God's will for all of God's creation,
we shall see Him face to face. Now I know in part; but then I shall know fully. I will know as I am known.
And now these three will always remain, for He is faithful: faith, hope, and love; but the greatest
of these is His love for us. It defines all that He is and all that He does.
1 Corinthians 13
We are unable to fully understand a prophetic message.
Until it is completely fulfilled we cannot imagine the living impact of it. His Word to us is deeper than we can fully understand, so we have the tendency to only partially interpret it. This is not wrong, it is simply an incomplete picture, lacking the knowledge
of His full intent.
His Word is as deep as He is, and it spans the intentions of His heart. Only He knows the full impact His desires will have for us. Only He knows the end from the beginning, for in
His great mercy, He brings the beginning of His desire to its full end.
He does not reveal more than we can handle, He does not reveal more than He calls us to walk in. He does not destroy our heart or
expect us to carry the burden of what would take us out of our place in time, catapulting His will beyond it's time.
But each one of us who carry the burden of a prophetic word have been brought to this
place and prepared for this time. Being Lord of our heart is His utmost priority. Without gathering our whole heart He has not gathered us, and oh, what a price He paid to do that!
Just think for a moment
what He would have risked had He explained to Eve all of His plan for His creation. What would have been her heart's reaction had He showed her what all of His creation would be in the end? What a heartbreak for her to realize He knew she had to fall to be
made perfect and filled by Him.
Having a knowledge of His intentions for all of humanity that went beyond her own heart's relationship with Him would set her above Him. It would also change what she was
capable of in the moment and catapult her out of her place in His plan. Not one of us is given that.
So when we live our life here, we learn to trust Him, not only with our own life and our desires, but
as Lord of His entire creation. We trust Him to abide in our place in it.
So this message is for those who hear Him, who know and follow His voice to know His heart. Like He did with Eve and all who have
come after her, He will protect and provide for you as you trust Him to stand in your place in His heart. He will redeem the beginning of His plan in the end, leaving no stone unturned, nothing in the dark, and nothing undone.
Know He will fulfill all He promised, all of which is too deep for our human heart. He has called and prepared all His warriors gathered in this generation. Humility is our call sign, for without it we could not trust Him to remain in our place
in Him now.
It is One Of The Highest Honors
By Kathy Mote
It is one of the highest honors to be told what you were made for. In all of human history, no one was told what their purpose was.
They simply obeyed Him. This doesn't imply that they all knew they obeyed Him. Most didn't realize they were created for His purpose. They simply fulfilled it. That is how powerful God is.
He told me He
is still creating His image in us. Each time He says it I run out of brain, but I accept what He says. He said we understand very little of all that He is doing. He is raising each one of us to trust Him, and in giving Him all, we become one with His heart,
which is the purpose for which He created us!
But getting back to being told what your purpose in His plan is, I wish to add one more thing that He showed me. He has spent years of my life raising me Himself, and it will never occur
to me to question Him or leave Him no matter what His purpose for me is.
By His presence, He has taught my heart to bow in His presence. I will not ask more of Him than this. For those who know the touch
of His hand and the sound of His voice, we desire nothing else, no matter what purpose He has for us.
is Only As You Obey Him
By Kathy Mote
It is only as you obey Him that you are seated in Heavenly places. To be seated is to take your
place, the place He has established for you to obey Him.
This Is What The Lord Said
By Kathy Mote
is what the Lord said.
“First of all, this is MY play (like a planned and strategic move in a football game) and I am in charge of it. YOU are My play, and what I am doing in you is what will change
the landscape. I will fill you with a Light so powerful it will far outshine the darkness. It will pierce it and all who stand in it will feel it.
You will fear nothing as you stand in My presence, for
I will stand in your presence. As you move in the Earth, I will move in the Earth, for as I move, you will follow.
Our relationship, our kinship, our communion will be that intimate. You do not rely on
the world around you, it relies on you and all I will do in you. They wait for it, though they don't know it.
Even now you begin to realize that all but the bond of trust has been withheld from your heart
of understanding. Now all will be revealed to you, for it is time that I be revealed in you. I will give purpose to your understanding.”
Zechariah 12. I believe this is happening today. I also believe the children of Israel are the children of promise, the spiritual Israel the Lord refers to are
those who are in Christ. I share this for you to consider.
A prophecy: The word of the Lord concerning the children of promise.
The Lord, who stretches
out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person declares: “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day,
when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. On that day I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness,” declares
the Lord. “I will keep a watchful eye over Judah, but I will blind all the horses of the nations. Then the clans of Judah will say in their hearts, ‘The people of Jerusalem are strong because the Lord Almighty is their God.’
“On that day I will make the clans of Judah (those who worship) like a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume all surrounding peoples right and left, but Jerusalem will remain
intact in her place.
On that day I will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem.
The Lord Created Each One Of Us
By Kathy Mote
The Lord created each one of us.
The Lord spoke to Jeremiah and said, “Before
I formed thee in the belly I knew thee” (Jer. 1:5.)
"For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful
are your works; my soul knows it very well. My fame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of
them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them."
And now He is creating His image in us.
