Faith Comes By Hearing Jesus

By Kathy Mote

 

Faith comes by hearing Jesus speak to you and you listening to Him. What He is doing in us is the evidence of things to come. What are the things to come? His image being created in us by us being completely filled with Him.

 

Technically, this is God's definition of salvation. Being made alive in Him is His gift. Life is something we are filled with, not something we do.

When God Said

By Kathy Mote

 

 

When God said He is the Author and finisher of our faith, He meant He is writing and imprinting the knowledge of Him on our heart. He does this as we hear His voice to know His thoughts toward us. This is what He is doing in us as He brings us to Him to know His heart. We are becoming what HE believes as He creates His image in us, for by His Spirit, He is raising us. What we believe is HIM, for as He interacts with us He heals our heart.

 

 

So faith (the evidence of what He is doing in us) comes by hearing and listening to His voice. HE is the Living Word of God, God's desire and declared will for us. He brings us to the Father, filled with the Father's desire that we be made perfect by Him. To be made perfect is to be completely filled with all the fullness of Him. This is why He asks to enter our heart and live in us, that by His presence, we might Live in Him.

Let Me Tell You

By Kathy Mote

 

 

Let me tell you what happens to those who come against you as you surrender your heart to the Lord, trusting Him. They disappear into thin air, for there is no substance to them.

When Rude, Prideful and Argumentative People

Rub You The Wrong Way

By Kathy Mote

 

 

When rude, prideful and argumentative people rub you the wrong way, there is a proper way to interpret it that I would like to share. It is God's very gentle reminder that you have prideful and argumentative tendencies to defend yourself that you should surrender to Him.

 

He cares that they draw you away from His rest, and He is keeping you close to His heart. This is His invitation to snuggle up in His arms, forget all but His love for you, and rest in a peace so sweet that it satisfies your need to fight back or defend yourself to anyone.

The Lord Said

By Kathy Mote

 

 

The Lord said what we see happening in the political arena is not only political, it is spiritual as well.

 

The Lord said, I AM bipartisan. I'M ALL FOR BRINGING YOU TO MYSELF.

 

 

Bi·par·ti·san

involving the agreement or cooperation of two parties that usually oppose each other's views.

 

*This is not a political post. This is what the Lord said. It is a metaphor. He is saying HE is our government, He is Lord, and He is using the circumstance to refine every heart, and bring every soul to Him to be in agreement with Him.

When the Lord Said

By Kathy Mote

 

 

When the Lord said He would take the gloves off, what He showed me were white, kid gloves. The kind that cushion and gentle every touch, keeping us from feeling His touch. He's taking them off so we can see Him as He is. We will know Him as He is as He interacts with us.

 

This meant that He would stop allowing our understanding of Him to be whitewashed by our own thoughts. We will stop deciding what He is like based on what we understand and what our own heart can hold. 

 

In His presence we will know Him as LORD, not someone we approve or disapprove of. We will no longer excuse ourselves from His presence by trying to govern Him. We will know Him as He is and see His judgments as they are and stop turning them into Sunday school lessons that we can tolerate in a comfort zone we can control. He will no longer allow us to remain as we are. He will not leave is as we are without Him. We will know Him intimately as He interacts with us.

We Have Been Seeing A Great Shaking

By Kathy Mote

 

 

We have been seeing a great shaking as the Lord brings great change to the Earth. He is exposing the evil in evil men. It shakes me to see such darkness in the world. So far what we have seen is evidence of dark intent that we can't imagine as we wait on the Lord to come back.

 

Many of us are finding there is a great battle to remain calm in us as we witness it. We need to learn to rest. This morning the Lord told me there would be a dramatic turn of events. He is about to push back. We are entering exciting times. But in the midst of it all, we must continue to rest in Him. This is so we don't lose our place. What we need to remember is, those who will be shaken are those who don't seek His face.
