Hello Beloved Child of God,
As I write to you in this heartfelt prophetic message you will hear not only the insights and exhortations that the Lord has given to me to share with you, but you will also hear the plea of heaven's King for His people to become honest with themselves and to examine the condition of their hearts, homes, and spheres of influence, whether it be ministry or in the marketplace.
I feel that the following paragraphs are prophetically assigned for many of you who are now in a place of great decision-making and transition.
May the Lord speak clearly to you as you read.
In His Shadow,
SOON TO BE UNCOVERED - THE HIDDEN
By Mary Lindow
And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet:
"Out of Egypt I called my son." (Matthew 2:15 fulfilling Hosea 11:1)
THE LORD IS CALLING A GENERATION OF "SON'S" (AND DAUGHTERS) UNTO HIMSELF THAT WILL NOT EMBRACE THE "WAY OF EGYPT"
but will be brought to a place of humility and not fight for rank or heavy-handed authority.
NOT ONLY WILL THESE HIDDEN ONES BE UNCOVERED IN A SEASON ABOUT
TO OCCUR IN THE BODY, BUT THE CONTRAST TO ALL OF THE HYPERBOLE AND
FLESHY MERCHANDISING OF THE ANOINTING WILL BE SO OBVIOUS TO THE PURE AND HUNGRY BELIEVER THAT LIGHT WILL DRIVE OUT THE DIM BULB OF MAN’S PRODUCTIONS WHICH RESEMBLE THE GOLDEN CALVES ONCE "CREATED" IN
PAST ATTEMPTS TO PACIFY THE LAGGING BELIEVER.
THERE IS TRAVAIL IN THE HEART OF GOD
that is so passionate and real that only those who have been purged of the toxic poison of selfish ambition can understand!
The Heart of heaven throbs with grief when He sees the cunning manipulation of those who promote and entice with supposed "new revelations" and smug aloofness to personal holiness and devotion to a prayer filled life.
THIS IS A SEASON TO LOOK AT THE MARRIAGES OF THOSE WHO APPEAR TO BE SO "ANOINTED" AND ADORED.
If the ministry-gifted individual is ministering more to the masses and is not ministering to his or her own family …the balance will tilt and the All-seeing King of truth will judge the character.
“ALL HUMAN SIN
SEEMS SO MUCH WORSE IN ITS CONSEQUENCES
THAN IN ITS INTENTIONS.”
~ Reinhold Niebuhr
SAINTS! ALL OF THE ADULATIONS AND NOTORIETY ON THE EARTH
WILL NOT BRING YOU FAVOR WITH GOD!
IF YOUR HOME IS A WRECK THAN YOU WILL ALSO WRECK THE PEOPLE OF GOD WITH THE SAME ARROGANCE AND LACK OF ORDER YOU MODEL IN THE HOME!
The Lord will allow the folly of our ways to catch up with us eventually. How we receive His correction will also reveal our level of humility and ability to act kindly to those bringing that correction.
AS WE BEGIN TO SEE THE DAWNING OF THE PROMISED WAVE
of God's greatest harvest event ever known to man since the birth of Christ Jesus, the Lord is going to allow the "Herod spirit attitudes" to be justly addressed. There are those who thought they were once at the forefront of what God was doing and have "lost" that so called edge by either getting harsh and critical or through focusing strictly on their own ministry advancement.
THE LORD IS LOVINGLY ALLOWING PAINFUL TRAVAIL TO OCCUR
in order for the current generation of Fathers and Mothers in the faith to see that through releasing, and affirming the sons and daughters in their care, or…. who are now, (due to the season), moving past them in influence or in a specific anointing, they WILL once again... run hard and multiply themselves through sending out the new wave of the King's regiments!
THERE IS A UNIQUE FRUIT THAT YOU WILL BEAR
as a forerunner of the king and as a representative in that calling you claim to have that He himself paid the price for. Let us be brutally honest with ourselves as we stand on the threshold of the greatest promise the Lord has offered to date in the call to his people.
AS YOU READ THE FOLLOWING PASSAGES, I URGE YOU TO SEE THAT THE HEART OF THE KINGDOM IS ONE THAT IS MERCIFUL, PATIENT, AND INCLUSIVE TOWARDS OTHERS. THIS IMITATES A UNITED HEAVENLY TEAM OF BROKEN VESSELS,
who are ready and prepared to let the Lord increase, and are also ready to let themselves decrease in any level of control, heavy handed judgment, and self focus.
WHEN YOU FOLLOW THE DESIRES OF YOUR SINFUL NATURE, YOUR LIVES WILL PRODUCE THESE EVIL RESULTS:
Sexual immorality, impure thoughts, eagerness for lustful pleasure, idolatry, participation in demonic activities, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, divisions, the feeling that everyone is wrong except those in your own little group, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other kinds of sin. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
BUT WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT CONTROLS OUR LIVES, HE WILL PRODUCE THIS KIND OF FRUIT IN US:
love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Here there is no conflict with the rules of the Kingdom and the law! Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. If we are living now by the Holy Spirit, let us follow the Holy Spirit's leading in every part of our lives. Let us not become conceited, or irritate one another, or be jealous of one another. (Galatians Chapter 5: 19-26)
DEAR BROTHERS AND SISTERS,
IF ANOTHER CHRISTIAN IS OVERCOME BY SOME SIN, YOU WHO ARE GODLY SHOULD GENTLY AND HUMBLY HELP THAT PERSON BACK ONTO THE RIGHT PATH.
And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. Share each other's troubles and problems, and in this way obey the law of Christ. If you think you are too important to help someone in need, you are only fooling yourself. You are really a nobody. Be sure to do what you should, for then you will enjoy the personal satisfaction of having done your work well, and you won't need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct. (Galatians Chapter 6: 1-5)
WE ARE BEING GIVEN TIME,
through the mercy and kindness of God to get our hearts and heart intentions in line with the reality of God’s plans. Taking a hard look at ourselves and allowing others to warn, assist, and advise, rarely mimics anything that reflects earthly intelligence or mania.
WISDOM COMES FROM GOD ABOVE.
Intelligence comes from man’s own efforts. Let us not confuse these issues as to what is considered Character or Charisma A Godly Character reflects inclusiveness of others, compassion, patience, brutal self-examination and honesty. Charisma is one with flair, influence, sparky-ness and human wit. It draws others into a web of hope and promise but rarely sacrifices it’s own agenda and comfort.
Let us bow down in a holy fear of the Lord’s Almighty ability to “scan our inner thoughts” and ask Him to truly renew in us a clean heart, clean motives and clear pathways. Remember, the pathways we are walking and paving in our lives, is the legacy we leave for those in another Generation to either humbly follow as we imitate Christ or else have great disdain over the self sustained and self fulfilling lifestyles that failed them.
Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good.
Anyone who does what is good is from God.
Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God.
3 John 1:11
