How To Upset The Lord

Heb 3:12Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. 13But exhortone another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

Many Christians take unbelief lightly as if it were no big deal but the Lord sees it differently.  What does the Lord call unbelief?  Evil.......

Every time we are confronted with life and we choose unbelief, disbelief, we choose not to trust, not to hope and to generally resign ourselves to the world and its ways instead of looking to the promises and power of our God, the Lord calls that evil.  He does not take it lightly.

If we want to please the Lord, we choose belief, trust and hope in His power and His promises.  We all face many different problems and challenges and tribulations in this life, but the Lord has given us tools to deal with them.  This brother can tell you that never once, not once ever have the Lord's power and promises let me down.  Yes, I have had to wait sometimes, for years...but the promises and power came through for me.

This brother has hoped in the Lord, I have remembered the Lord's goodness to me and my family.  I have remembered the past miracles and displays of power on my behalf.  I remember.....This is not about me though it is about you.  How did Israel get into trouble over and over again?  They forgot...they did not remember the Lord and they went off and did their own thing.  Each and every time it ended in pain, heart ache and sometimes death.

I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will
remember your miracles of long ago.

"Remember the law of my servant Moses, the decrees and
laws I gave him at Horeb for all Israel.

Do you still not understand? Don't you remember the five loaves for
the five thousand, and how many basketfuls you gathered?

We must choose faith and belief every time we are confronted with issues.  We must remember the Lord's promises and power and miracles.  Everything that was done was done for us.  The parting of the red sea was done for us, raising lazarus was done for us, feeding thousands with a few loaves of bread was done for us, walking on water was done for us.  We must believe and we must remember.

This brother is a living, walking talking testimony to the power and promises of God Almighty.  He does miracles and exercises His power every bit as much today as He ever has.  Our faith is the key to seeing that power at work in our own lives.

If we want to please the Lord, and I know we all do, then we must choose faith and belief at every turn on this road called life.

grace and peace

Update 4.18.2014

I ask the Lord often if I should write something, and lately the answer is no.  What has the Lord spoken to this servant?  We are to walk and talk with our God on a daily basis, building our relationship with Him.  All the rest of the stuff going on around us including the lunar tetrad etc is background and or noise relative to what is at the forefront of the Lord's mind and heart today.

According to the clear impression made on this writer's spirit, what is on the Lord's mind and heart today are very simple.  We were created to praise and worship Him.  We have an eternal purpose here that starts and ends with Him.  He is the focus.  He wants our attention, now.  Thats it.

It is this writers guess that the Spirit has halted all other writing here to strip back all distractions or less important messages.  There is one and only one message coming through right now, focus on Him.

A Couple Things From The Lord

The Lord spoke clearly to my spirit today about a couple things:

1.  The coming lunar tetrad on His feast days
2.  Seeking shelter in Him

So on 1.  The coming lunar tetrad on His feast days i saw clearly in my mind a blinking traffic light.  The coming lunar blood moons on Passover are blinking yellow lights like traffic lights indicating proceed with caution.  The coming fall feast blood moons are blinking red lights indicating, stop, warning, danger ahead.

Seem kind of simplistic?  Maybe just my interpretation?  Nope, crystal clear from the Lord, simple, direct and straightforward as can be.  The Lord does not write to us in doctoral thesis format.  He gives things to us simply and directly.

 Why blinking lights?  We are being warned twice for each feast day, once each on passover and sukkot this year and once each on passover and sukkot in 2015.

Where did this come from ^^?  I asked the Lord (since this is April 1), what the story is with these blood moons on the feast days?  What you read above is what I received.  This morning it was very clear, not through a glass darkly or I kinda sorta think, it was crystal clear impression from the Lord onto my spirit.

2.  Seeking shelter in Him.  This is the Lord's blog, not mine.  I just happen to be the only writer here.  I am sure you have noticed the writing on current events etc has come to a screeching stop.  The Spirit just put the brakes on it all of the sudden leaving me wondering.  There is absolutely nothing within me that indicates go ahead and keep writing about the earthquakes and dead birds and space rocks and all the other signs.  The Spirit says stop, so it stopped.  Now what?

The Lord impressed on my spirit with crystal clarity this morning that we are to seek shelter in Him, as He is a real fortress, a real castle, a real stronghold, a real defense against what is coming.  We are to center ourselves on Him and root ourselves deep into Him.  He has impressed me more than once recently about the need to center our focus on Him to withstand whatever it is that lies ahead for this world.  The world may get a proverbial punch in the gut and we may be around to see it.  How will we deal with the world around us fainting with fear?  Root ourselves deeper in Christ.  That's how.

I have no idea what is coming (other than what is clearly written in the Word) in the days, weeks, months and years ahead, but I am certain of what the Lord has spoken to me today and about what the Word says about these things.

He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield,
in whom I take refuge
, who subdues peoples under me.

Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and
guide me

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I
take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold

I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust 

Col 2:6So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

Colossians 1:23 if it is so that you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and not moved away from the hope of the Good News which you heard, which is being proclaimed in all creation under heaven; of which I, Paul, was made a servant.
