I’d Like To Share
I'd like to share what happened to me at the hands of man in church. This was a well meaning bunch who were Spirit filled. They were ministry oriented. When you got saved,
they sat you in a chair, and you asked to be filled with the Holy Spirit. It was only after you spoke in tongues that you were allowed to get up.
Well, I couldn't. After an hour, my childlike faith to receive
what the Lord intended to pour into me turned to heart breaking, soul searching prayer and finally, fear of failing to receive. That is not how my Savior had dealt with me the day before when I said, Yes! Come into my heart, Lord! What He said to me then was,
I love you, My child, and He didn't say it, He sang it.
I had heard Him as clear as a bell deep in my heart and it filled my empty soul with awe. I opened my eyes after receiving Him to realize I stood in a bright
light. Everything looked bright, although I must admit, I didn't realize what this was at the time.
So, getting back to the chair I was not allowed to leave until I produced evidence of being filled. This is man's
idea of what God means, and not how God deals with us as we answer Him. I begged to go home, promising I would faithfully pursue my prayer language, which I rarely use. Hearing His voice, I answer with understanding and I have no need of it.
For three months, I agonized in travail, wondering why I couldn't produce that particular fruit. One day I was listening to a worship service on the radio as I cleaned the mirror in my little room, and up from a deep well in my heart burst the most
beautiful prayer language, singing praises to God.
I was delighted! I could understand what I said. Beautiful things I did not know but the Holy Spirit revealed because He did! So I reported this to the 'Gestapo'
at church and they nearly threw a fit. They said you are not supposed to be able to do that. It is for prayer, or prophecy.
Man cannot teach what God will say to our heart as He draws us to Him, and if we belong
to the Lord, we are to follow the Lord. We need to listen to His voice as He speaks to us. Our interaction with Him as He speaks to our heart is how He will create in us all He desires. This is His work in us, and He does this by His presence in us. It is
He that creates His image in us.
(Man has disrespected God, limiting Him to their underestanding of the Bible. But what God intended when He created us is to embrace us in a relationship with Him. It is His intention
to give us Life in Him where we hear and come to Him as He fills us.)
Well, I was filled with the Holy Ghost the minute I got saved. My Father is faithful. I am as He calls me, whether I realize all that He called
me or not and as I grow in Him, I learn to trust Him. (Now we are talking about maturity.) After being Spirit filled for over forty years, and I am just now being shown who, what and where I am as He reveals His purpose and His heart to me.
He is revealing His heart now unlike any other time because it's time and we are being readied for His return. That is the day we are in. What they considered the cutting edge of the sword forty years ago was man's thoughts of God's intentions. But
what they sought then was power. Power to walk in, power to minister to others in, power to lift themselves up with.
But man's thoughts of God are not God's thoughts of man, and man's heart toward God is nowhere
near where God's heart toward man is. He is lifting us into His arms in an eternal embrace. As He fulfills the desires that have always been in His heart, He is making our heart one with His. All religion and ignorance aside, isn't that why we were created?
The Lord Said
The Lord said, The time has come for you to know who you are, or you won't know what I am doing, or understand what's going on.
Most People Think They Have A Good
Handle On God
By Kathy Mote
Most people think they have a good handle on God. They've got their walk with Him and their faith in Him down to a science
by believing every word they read. But how much of His heart He reveals to your heart is not up to you, it's up to Him.
That may seem arbitrary to you, but that is how He prepares your heart to receive Him. Every
victory, every breakthrough, deliverance or release you experience is made known to you as He brings you into His heart.
All that He reveals to your heart, you have to humble your heart to receive from Him, or
you don't receive it at all. You walk in all He has for you by walking with Him. Your relationship with Him is actually your response to Him.
That hunger, yearning and desire you feel for Him is Him inviting you
to come to Him, hear His voice and be gathered into His arms. Bringing you into His presence by revealing His desire for you is how He prepares you to walk in His heart. And hearing Him changes your heart.
Him if I could speak about current events. He said, You mean in the world? The world is coming down. This IS current events. It is what I am doing in My Beloved to bring them into My arms.
God Said Pride Sees Self Instead
By Kathy Mote
God said pride sees self instead of Him, but humility is to see Him. This means that all the proud are able to see is themself
because they can't see Him. So seeing yourself is not humbling your heart to see Him. Only those who lay down their pride and their love of self will be able to see Him instead of themselves.
I took the liberty
of paraphrasing what He said. What He said is hard to wrap your head around. What He said is from His perspective, which is something only His presence reveals. He reveals His heart to our heart as we are embraced by Him, which is the only way to learn of
Seeing Him defines the difference between Life and death, which is what He calls being without Him. What He meant was, It is prideful to see and consider yourself instead of Him but the humble are able to
see Him. No wonder He values humility above all else in us. It is how we enter and remain in Him and that is His work in us.
