WORD OF THE LORD
Dying to self has been great to only My remnant. Self has been the predominate cry of many within churches. Comfort zones have exceeded the holy places. Congeniality has usurped commitments to holiness. Tongues wag with gossip rather than truths. Who shall declare My Words among men? How can true repentance come without correction? Fault finding is not discernment. The critical spirit causes wounds to the body and as these wounds seep an infectious poison spreads within the body.
The critical spirit sees others rather than self introspection. The critical spirit poisons its own heart and the hearts of those people around them. Self covetousness and self importance are the legs which hold up and support the critical spirit. Faults, there are faults everywhere and to focus on the faults of others is to remove your eyes from the cross. What shall keep you from seeing Jesus? Self love and selfishness will blind you. What shall keep you from walking as Jesus? Waywardness and well meaning disobedience will cause you to stumble. What shall keep you from touching and healing as Jesus? Hands that do deeds for self glory and hands that touch the unclean things in their service of man will not carry My Anointing.
When shall My people consecrate themselves to serve only Me? They are a busy lot, and as Lot was called out from the evil city I am calling My people out from their own self services and into My service of obedience unto My will. Who shall do My will and serve Me? Only those who are emptied out of their own plans for self, self goals, self desires, self importance, and their own self will can and will serve Me in holiness.
Are you marching
into the tide or
rest comfortably on the shores of self? Have you considered? Where is
service I have called you to do? What have you done with your talent?
are you really serving? The tide is swiftly changing and you are
left standing with one foot on the land and with one foot in the
Will you remain in your lukewarm stance or will you venture out of your
self and join Me in the deep? Deep calls unto deep. ~ Come unto Me and
swiftly repent. Deep calls unto deep. ~ Come seeking My will in service
unto Me and you will find the truest treasures from the deep. Yea, you
will find the Pearl of Great Price.
Matthew 13 44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in
a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy
goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of
every kind: Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord. Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.
Proverbs 18, 4 The words of
a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the
of wisdom as a flowing brook.
