 What is God speaking to you?

I take great interest in hearing what the Lord is speaking to His body all over the world. I'm a firm believer each member of the body holds a different piece of the picture that God reveals. None sees the picture in full, but each of us prophesy in part. Therefore, it is a joy in hearing the hearts of others. Please post and share what the Lord is speaking to you guys in the secret place.

 Re:

....."Make it the business of life to prepare for Heaven". (By Esther Burr, daughter to the great Jonathon Edwards).

I am currently reading the biography of Jonathon Edwards, and one chapter gives special attention to the His daughter Esther. She wrote the above quote to a freind of hers. As I read it, one of those "Selahs" came all over me. Pause and think of that.

Think about all the pursuits of man; all the hopes and dreams of so called success in this life. They are virtually endless in variation, and yet only one is worthwhile.

I dont' know about you, but I've spent most of my life chasing after rainbows of my own design. My pursuits have been vanity through and through. Most of my hopes were dashed on the rocks of sin and weak flesh leading me around like a pig with a nose ring.

When I stand before God and give account for the stewardship of my time, there will be precious little to show for the years He has blessed me with. I am truly sorry Lord.

Much of the time I didn't know any better. I knew much of what I was doing was wrong, but I didn't know how to make it right. I had lofty goals, but lacked the drive and ambition to see it through. I played and sinned. I wasted hours, days, weeks, months, years and decades....even most of a life time.

I can't go back and reclaim time. Noone can. All I can do is throw myself upon the heart of His mercy and beg in repentence for forgiveness. I can hope that somehow, someway, He can use my loss as someone else's gain. I pray that the time I have left will be used for more fruitful pursuits...or pursuit. Jesus and souls. Jesus and souls. Jesus and souls. I'm so hungry for God. I'm so hungry to see souls added to His crown. I desperately want my vessel to be used of God for His glory. Yet the ball and chain on my leg "seems" no less heavy today than it did a year ago.

What can I do but bow before Him in shame? What can I do but hope in the love of Calvary's victory?

If you are a young person reading this, it doesn't have to be that way for you. Don't waste your life and it's youth on pursuits that profit you nothing. Seek Him. Seek Him. Seek Him. If you have Him you have it all. If not you are destitute beyond description. Live your life and make it the pursuit of your life to store His true riches in the heavenly realm. The "american dream" is a lie. The "top of the ladder" is as empty as the Liberty Bell. There is no value to life without God.
The bibles says that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. This is the only pursuit that pays the wages of abundant and everlasting life. The comparison of the universe to a grain of sand cannot help us to comprehend eternity. As the beloved James said, our "life is but a vapor". How long does that last? What is it's real value if Heaven is not it's final destination? Lord, please have mercy on me. Oh God help me this day.

 Re: idolatry and adultry

Hi Mattie,

Something that the Lord has been speaking to me about for quite awhile is the same message He gave to Ezekiel and Hosea- that He is grieved over the idolatry and (spiritual) adultery of His own people.


Ezekiel 16:35 'Now then, O harlot, hear the word of the Lord! 36 Thus says the Lord God: "Because your filthiness was poured out and your nakedness uncovered in your harlotry with your lovers, and with all your abominable idols, and because of the blood of your children which you gave to them, 37 surely, therefore, I will gather all your lovers with whom you took pleasure, all those you loved, and all those you hated; I will gather them from all around against you and will uncover your nakedness to them, that they may see all your nakedness. 38 And I will judge you as women who break wedlock or shed blood are judged; I will bring blood upon you in fury and jealousy. 39 I will also give you into their hand, and they shall throw down your shrines and break down your high places. They shall also strip you of your clothes, take your beautiful jewelry, and leave you naked and bare. 40 They shall also bring up an assembly against you, and they shall stone you with stones and thrust you through with their swords. 41 They shall burn your houses with fire, and execute judgments on you in the sight of many women; and I will make you cease playing the harlot, and you shall no longer hire lovers. 42 So I will lay to rest My fury toward you, and My jealousy shall depart from you. I will be quiet, and be angry no more. 43 Because you did not remember the days of your youth, but agitated Me F16 with all these things, surely I will also recompense your deeds on your own head," says the Lord God. "And you shall not commit lewdness in addition to all your abominations.

44 "Indeed everyone who quotes proverbs will use this proverb against you: 'Like mother, like daughter!' 45 You are your mother's daughter, loathing husband and children; and you are the sister of your sisters, who loathed their husbands and children; your mother was a Hittite and your father an Amorite. 46 Your elder sister is Samaria, who dwells with her daughters to the north of you; and your younger sister, who dwells to the south of you, is Sodom and her daughters. 47 You did not walk in their ways nor act according to their abominations; but, as if that were too little, you became more corrupt than they in all your ways. 48 As I live," says the Lord God, "neither your sister Sodom nor her daughters have done as you and your daughters have done. 49 Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. 50 And they were haughty and committed abomination before Me; therefore I took them away as I saw fit. F17 51 Samaria did not commit half of your sins; but you have multiplied your abominations more than they, and have justified your sisters by all the abominations which you have done. 52 You who judged your sisters, bear your own shame also, because the sins which you committed were more abominable than theirs; they are more righteous than you. Yes, be disgraced also, and bear your own shame, because you justified your sisters. 53 "When I bring back their captives, the captives of Sodom and her daughters, and the captives of Samaria and her daughters, then I will also bring back the captives of your captivity among them, 54 that you may bear your own shame and be disgraced by all that you did when you comforted them. 55 When your sisters, Sodom and her daughters, return to their former state, and Samaria and her daughters return to their former state, then you and your daughters will return to your former state. 56 For your sister Sodom was not a byword in your mouth in the days of your pride, 57 before your wickedness was uncovered. It was like the time of the reproach of the daughters of Syria F18 and all those around her, and of the daughters of the Philistines, who despise you everywhere. 58 You have paid for your lewdness and your abominations," says the Lord. 59 For thus says the Lord God: "I will deal with you as you have done, who despised the oath by breaking the covenant.

David Wilkerson also preached a message very similar to this called "Sodom's Sisters" right at about the same time I started getting this message.

In Him, Chanin

 Re:

this is what the Lord has been speaking to me:

[b]what have they done with my Jesus?[/b] oh, Church what are you making of Him? where is He in the church? i see the pretty pews, the nice books, such 'churchianity.' oh, my Lord, He has been blurred! mixed in with this world. what have they done with Him? where is Jesus? where is He? can't find Him if i go into the neatly organized Bible studies...can't find Him when i go to the local prayer meeting..i find 'feelings' false 'zeal-flesh-mixture.'...WHERE IS JESUS? why do they continue to persist into making Him into something that He is not? something that He is much more worthy of. He is holy-pure...so worthy!! He's so much more than attending the studies, the meetings...you can do, do, do all you want. you can say, speak, tell, proclaim Him and what you know about Jesus all you want. you can have a heart of gold, oh, but do you have a heart fully surrendered? where is this? where is He? i cry tonight...oh...[b]what have they done with my Jesus?...[/b]

"i'm tired of churchianity. i want the reality of Christ. the reality of Jesus."
-chip brogden

in Christ alone,
arielle

 Re: What is God speaking to you?

Mattie

Over here near the Rocky Mountains of western Canada, God has been nudging my spirit with a sense of "urgency". I feel that the time truly is short, and God is "calling out" a remnant to be His voice in these days..I believe that the days of the traditional mega church are done, and preaching will return to the marketplace, and wherever the lost are.. Just how I feel..
Greg :-o
