I’d Like To Share How The Lord Taught Me
By Kathy Mote
I'd like to share how the Lord taught me to abide the times we are in. He said He is having His way, and then He reminded me that He said this day would come.
There's only one problem I have with
hearing what He says and then imagining how it will be. I had no idea that 'refining every heart' would look like this. Not even close. The whole world is going up in flames and not a place I want to be.
this is what He told me, that refining every heart is the point of what is going on. What He is doing is raising His Bride. Which brings me to what I have stumbled over again and again. The Remnant are few. So few it breaks my heart.
There are many who are called by His name but do not hear His voice. They are steeped in religion and superstition and they operate by carnal thought. There's just one problem. They are the Spirit filled church, and God's Remnant is
called out of it.
The Holy Spirit was given to lead us to Christ to help us follow Him. But we have to listen to Him, and to do that, we have to humble our heart. Knowing Him has to be the point. That is known
in a heart that cries out, not in those who desire power.
The Lord said He is guarding the Truth until they are ready to humble their heart. He said if they were to hear it before their heart was undone, it would
become a better religion for them to practice as they try to do everything them-self.
He told me to come and say what we are waiting for. We are waiting for Him to change every heart. I cannot imagine how this
will be. But He is the only One who can get this done. He is doing a great cleansing, stripping down man's carnal thought. He is melting down the human race to refine their heart.
Stand firm as you wait for Him.
Every Time The Response To A Post Is Not Positive
By Kathy Mote
Every time the response to a post is not positive, I wonder if I could have said it better. If it were more clear, maybe His Beloved would receive the blessings He revealed to my heart.
Today was one
of those days, and I wondered again if I didn't say it right. But as I set my phone aside and made a lovely dinner for myself, the Lord spoke to my heart and used my dinner to teach me something.
I made Linguini, boiled
in chicken broth with pink Himalayan sea salt. I drained the pasta and added butter, roasted garlic, olive oil and finally, some parmesan cheese.
It was delicious next to parmesan encrusted chicken breast and a fresh
salad. As I ate, the Lord reminded me of the Italian restaurant in town. They serve very plain food, but the folks around here go wild, saying it's the best they've ever had.
The Lord showed me this and said, You are too rich
for most people's blood right now. I love what comes out of your head. My head, I wondered. Not my heart? He said, It is My heart that you understand. I meant what I said. You said it right, and when I release the Truth in their heart, they will also understand.
So this is what the Lord reminded me of. He always does what He says. The difference between long ago and now is, the time is short, and the harvest is ripe. Soon you will say, Just look what the Lord has done!
In The Time Before The Holy Spirit Was Poured Out
By Kathy Mote
In the time before the Holy Spirit was poured out, people heard God's voice as He spoke to them. God did not speak to many. He sent His prophets to them. The Lord showed me something that I would like to share.
they heard His voice back then, there was no question it was Him. It set them on their face, humbled before Him. No man stood, they fell down. Even before His angels, they fell down.
Today, because the Holy Spirit is
shed abroad in our heart, we humble our heart before Him to receive Him because in our heart, we know it is Him. It is no casual event to receive Him.
We have made a religion of our salvation, but we have not spoken all there
is of Him. The Truth is, to open our heart is to answer Him, for He presses our heart to enter, then we invite Him in.
He said according to our carnal thinking, it is all up to us as we will, not realizing that receiving Him
is our response to Him as He asks to come in. That is what is meant by 'hearing' Him. (He is the Word. We hear Him.)
He is the living God. When we open our heart to respond to Him and He enters us, He is letting us in Him.
It is no casual matter that we enter into relationship with Him.
This Is What The Lord Said
By Kathy Mote
what the Lord said. I will share it as He has revealed His heart. Only those closest to Him will know the Truth in it. It will obliterate carnal thought. There are limits to what we can reconcile in our human heart. But this is what He said.
You judge whether or not you belong with someone else by what's in their heart and you know this by what comes out of their mouth. I judge whether or not you belong with them by what you are and by what they are not.
You are not the random product of a bio molecular response. That is not what you are. You were created by the words of My mouth. You came into being as I revealed the desire of My heart. That is who you are, and why you recognize My voice.
In your thinking, any man can come and I will sup with them. Isn't that what the scriptures say and you see it as your choice. Any man called to Me will hear My voice. I call My own, for they will come to Me. Do your scriptures not also
say, one cannot come unless they are called. One can not open unless I knock.
Your thoughts and actions do not make you who you are, they only show what is in your heart. It is My thoughts and actions that give you Life and
bring you into My arms. I have made you who you are as I poured My heart into you. That is who you are.
My children are the Remnant in each generation. They are My pride and joy, few as they are. I told you this wouldn't fit
in your heart. As for those who have no Life in them, they are as they are and have come to hate My heart. They will witness as I gather My children back into My arms.

Knowing that He is having His way,
my striving ends.
Your Heart’s Dependence On The Lord
By Kathy Mote
Your heart's dependence on the Lord is your soul's independence from needing man to show you who you are. How you learn this is by giving your heart to Him as you accept His presence in all things.
That is when
you enter in and He begins to teach you just how big He is and that you belong to Him. Ohhh, this is big! It gives your heart the deepest peace to know that everything belongs to Him.
So that is how you stand as you roll the
care of all things onto Him. After all, He is Lord of all things, and His presence brings great confidence to your heart as you accept this. As you stand before Him, you will not bear the weight of all that belongs to Him. That includes you and all that is
in your heart from the greatest to the smallest things.
It Never Fails
By Kathy Mote
fails. Every time we find ourselves in the middle of a trial of the heart, it's the same thing. We wonder why the people around us act the way they do. Not only are they clueless, they are loveless.
We wonder what on earth we did to provoke
them, but, no, that couldn't be it. We wonder what is wrong with us that our life should be this way, but the cost of self pity is great. So we blame the loveless ones in our life, and we endure them, hoping the Lord will have His way in them.
There's just one problem. We are not responding to the Lord or giving Him our heart as long as our reaction is to them, and this leaves us in a cold and dark place. We don't see that the Lord is aligning our heart with Him, so we can't walk in His
purpose in our heart. His purpose is to teach us to walk as His child, and what an honor this is.
He is pressing us as He reshapes our heart. What He is doing is teaching our heart to hear and see and know Him. Every hope
and dream and breath in us will come from and be given back to Him as we learn our place in Him.
We may be hoping He will change our loved ones, but He is dealing with us, not them. His presence is the heartbeat
within us and our whole life is our response to Him, but we must live our life unto Him. His response to our surrendered heart is only the beginning of all that He will reveal.
If I had known that I belonged to Him my
entire life, I would have lived my life before Him knowing He was raising me. It has lifted a heavy burden from my heart to know He will have His way in all things, but as I learn my place before Him, my own heart is where this must begin.
