To Be Clear
By Kathy Mote
Just to be clear, my enemy is not the devil, it is my pride. The devil doesn't have the ability to take me
out of the Lord's presence, only my pride can do that. The devil is my adversary. he is constantly contesting my pride. As he taunts me into conflict, I lose the peace that is the Lord's presence, and that is the prize.
At 2:00 AM
At 2:00 am my Father spoke to me, saying, Your enemy's purpose is to challenge you. My purpose is that you overcome.
At 3:00 am I was given a dream that brought me face to face with my enemy. Convinced of his superiority, he considered himself an authority to be reckoned with. He spoke with arrogance and pride. He demanded my respect. At first he was very polished,
but then he threatened to take my life. He had no more polish than a bully. He represented every need I have in this life.
In this dream I purposed in my heart to remain humble before the Lord. To do this,
I did not argue, or dispute or look the enemy in the eye. I kept my heart before the Lord and I trusted Him with the outcome of my life. In short, I had respect for my enemy because I have respect for the Lord and His desire that I honor Him. Respecting the
Lord is the heart posture of one who overcomes.
To do this was not difficult. To honor the Lord's presence above all is to overcome all. To be called to the Lord's presence is my most precious gift. I
will learn to be as He desires me to be as I give my heart to Him. I believe that is the point.
As a nation, have become arrogant as we declared our pride. I'm talking about our attitude as a whole. We
are so proud as a nation we are as an overripe plum, not humble at all. The enemy has gone to great lengths to target our rights and freedoms that our pride would take us away from receiving them. As a nation, look at what we have become.
To restore our freedom, He will restore our ability to worship Him. The Lord is teaching His Bride the heart posture of one who abides in His presence to overcome. As His Beloved, we will live in His presence with a humble heart that honors Him,
owing our life and our freedom to Him. What the Lord is doing is raising His Bride to come to Him.
There Is Such Intense Spiritual
By Kathy Mote
There is such intense spiritual warfare ramping up in the world. Spirits of strife and hatred binding people's
hearts and blinding their minds. As I was made aware of their plight, the Lord showed me His heart. He looks forward to the day He will lighten their hearts and change their minds. I will wait to see what only He can do.
The Only Way To Perceive Life
The only way to perceive Life is to be given Life. This is why those who do not accept Him have no concept of what they have missed. I am sharing what the Lord
spoke to me to enlarge our perspective and ease our heart as we watch the Lord deal with those who do not have Life. We will trust in Him as He shakes all that can be shaken, even though the shaking is very great.
The Words We Speak
By Kathy Mote
The words we speak to each other do not have
the power to penetrate and enter the heart. Only the Holy Spirit can speak to a person's heart to wake them up and bring Life. This is how He changes their heart.
The Holy Spirit speaks in God's presence
and in God's presence we hear His voice. We have this idea of what in His presence means. We're always in His presence. He doesn't miss a thing in our life.
The question is, are we listening as He is speaking
to us, so that by His Spirit He will bring us close. We don't do that for each other, He does that by His Spirit as He speaks to each one of us.
As we walk in His presence and obey His voice, we are a
witness of Him. But only those He is speaking to can hear His voice and know His heart. That's when they come to Him. Everyone's heart is the work of His hands. When they are called to Him, they answer Him.
One Who Has No Companions
By Kathy Mote
who has no companions of the same kind, in a place not frequented by others
The Lord said, “You are the loneliest person in the world, but you will not feel lonely at all. After being filled with
Life upon seeing My face, you stand alone in the world, which is a desolate place. You will no longer feel like the odd man out as you realize where you are is set apart.”
We are being healed of
this life in a way that blows my mind. The Lord is severing every tie. He is breaking every bond but the closeness we feel to Him. It is our healing to know His hand on our life. Even the memory of who we are is being rewritten as He reveals His heart.
He is showing us our past belongs to Him as He calls us to stand by His side. His calling is so deep, we will live by belonging to Him. The Earth and our experiences here that once defined who we are being broken from
our heart as we are healed. Who we are, is His.
