Be that as it may, he will not be successful for I will ensure that you are protected and guided along life’s highways, and you will be given much to assist you on your journey. I will be there for you always, and never will I forsake you. Psalm 37:23-24 NLT “The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the LORD holds them by the hand.”
You must be strong, and stand your ground in the face of all evil. Have faith that nothing by any means shall ever harm you, and that you will indeed come out shining like the lights that you all are. 1 Thessalonians 5:5-11 NKJV “You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.”
There is a great move of the Holy Spirit happening right now, and there will be a harvest of many souls. This is a time like no other! Many will come into the Kingdom! Many, many will be saved! You can count on it! Revelation 14:14-16 NKJV “Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.”
This I say to you, you must rely upon Me in My greatness to supply you with everything you will need in order that My plans and desires for you be fulfilled. There must be a willingness to serve Me at all costs, whether it be at the loss of some who are close to you, or the falling away of certain aspects of your lifestyles. Let them fall away now. Let them all go, for they no longer can walk with you on your path.
The ones who do stay, however, will be transformed by the light! They will become brand new individuals having been changed from within! They will become new creations! 2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
Of course, many who are led on this journey will become totally different people to who they were prior to coming into My Kingdom. This is good news for some, with the old falling away, and much of the little annoying habits and personality traits that you weren’t happy with, all disappearing as you become whole! Things you thought you could never change about yourself, suddenly become non-existent! You will see yourself in a new light because you have become that light. You, my friends, are the lights of the world! Hallelujah! Glory be to God forever! Amen. Matthew 5:14-16 NKJV “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
PS 2 Corinthians 5:6-15 NKJV “So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
The Judgment Seat of Christ
Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences.
Be Reconciled to God
For we do not commend ourselves again to you, but give you opportunity to boast on our behalf, that you may have an answer for those who boast in appearance and not in heart. For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; or if we are of sound mind, it is for you. For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.” Amen.
All glory for these words as always goes to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
