HEARDPurpose defeat the enemy.  When is suffering wrong?


PIX:  I saw the word Shame. 


The word suffer occurs 93 times in scripture.


1 Peter 5:8-11 NKJV

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.  But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.  To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.



The word shame occurs 140 times in scripture.


“Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, And instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double; Everlasting joy shall be theirs.”  (Isa 61:7 NKJV)






In your life you have suffered shame. Some of it was your own doing, but most from circumstances beyond your own control. It was an enemy plan to ultimately destroy you. And what he could not destroy, he slimed with layers upon layers of shame. Covered in mud, you have felt despised and looked down upon. In an attempt to recover, you have layered yourself with soap to rid yourself of the memory. And yet deep in your heart you still suffer the shame.


The enemy placed you as the tail to walk upon and trample. In your sufferings, you have cried out to Me, and I have heard your cries of despair and shame. Did I not promise to make you the head and not the tail? What the enemy has tried to slime, I make beautiful and bestow with honor. I give honor to My weakest members. Do not forget that. You have yet to experience your most glorious hour and the enemy knows that. Remember that shame is one of his greatest road blocks. I want you to recognize it and put it behind you once and for all.


"O my God, I trust in thee: let Me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over Me."(Psalms 25:2)





When Ham saw Noah's nakedness, rather than turning and covering the shame, he told his brothers. When Noah found out, he cursed him with slavery.


Because the other sons respected their father, they came into his tent backwards, keeping their eyes averted and covering his nakedness. When Noah heard, he blessed them with prosperity.


Likewise, when you see the sins of others, cover their shame. To tell another, is like spreading a plague. One tells another and so on. When you spread someone else's shame, you yourself become the captive. The end result is always slavery.


When you love someone, you will be loyal to him no matter what the cost. You will cover his shame.


“And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.” (I Peter 4:8)





Though you appear crippled and carry the stigma of this shame, I have ordained a straight path for you. I AM moving you quickly into your place. Your journey is coming into a time of favor, whereby as you trust in Me, I will indeed roll away the shame. I will send My angels to guard your path, and you will move forward into Me. With each step you will grow stronger and suddenly you will be brought into an open expanse - a place filled with widened boundaries. A promotion, something well deserved by one who has suffered long. Trust Me, it's coming.



“And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day.” (Joshua 5:9)





In My kingdom, I send the mouth of babes to still the avenger. I empower the foolish to confound the wise. The cowards are given holy boldness. The meek are raised to possess the spoils of war.


I do not intend weakness to shame. Rather, weakness is a mark of honor. For only through weakness can My full complete power rest upon your life. If I place you in an environment of weakness it is because there is an assignment for you that will be hindered any other way.


The strength of flesh has no might in the unseen world. The enemy lies, telling the world there is strength in control, intimidation, debate, intellect, mastery. He puffs man with these false securities, for darkness is desperately afraid of weakness. Weakness that empties self in any form leaves one vulnerable to depend upon Me. Within that dependence I AM released to work greater victories to defeat the realm of darkness.


Rejoice in weakness. It is not something to fear. Rather glory in it, that My full miraculous power may be dispatched without hindrance.


"..My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness..." (2 Corinthians 12:9)





I wound and I heal. I tear down and I build up. What is being fashioned you have not seen. Rest assured it is I Who have brought you to this place. A new thing is in the making. But I will also restore your walk to a smooth path without shame. Your confidence shall return. Be of good cheer.


" See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with Me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand." (Deuteronomy 32:39)






Who can know the heart of man? There are many influences that cause him to run from Me. But I know the heart. I have understood your pain and your desires to camouflage it. I have suffered your grief. I have understood your sorrows.


Do not let the enemy condemn you for running. I have kept you and never left your side. The enemy may be justified in his condemnation, but justification comes through Me, and Me alone. You cannot justify yourself. I alone hold pardons. When I speak, the enemy's charges cannot stand. I have spoken. Do not allow shame to stand between us. You are My favored one.


Purity comes from the fire. Darkness cannot stand My purging fire. Your heart has been cleansed and you have withstood the heat. I do not smell smoke upon you. Yet the enemy would cloud your vision with the smoke of shame. Walk through it and leave it behind. Do not allow shame to come between us. Let the shame go. Come to Me.


“For the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.” (I Samuel 16:7)





ONE BY ONE 10/10/94

You have been under great opposition. I have given you a secret weapon and that is not even yet manifest to you as to how effective. Just continue to use your authority one by one and oust your opposition. This is for ultimate victory. Be of good cheer. You have been greatly slimed by the enemy in this process. I want shame and condemnation and guilt gone. There is no place for such when you abide in Me. Don't hang onto it, let it go. I remove all stain and cleanse everything by My blood. Stand on that and be strengthened.


“And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.” (Acts 5:41 KJV)





I AM raising My sons for future leadership and yet they are bound in shame. I will teach them to use their weapons and they will be established. In that day, they will be launched. They will also be given spreading wings of faith to fly above the circumstances and their shame.


“Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord GOD of hosts, be ashamed for my sake: let not those that seek thee be confounded for my sake, O God of Israel. Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.” (Ps 69:6-7 KJV)





When you heard the foul mouth of the enemy's accusation, you overcame and blessed and did not retaliate. Consequently, I fought your battle for you. I want you to remember this lesson and want it to be so important that you plant it like a memorial in stone so that you do not forget. I also want to bless you where you live and set you free from the enemy's shame.


“Let those be put to shame and brought to dishonor who seek after my life; Let those be turned back and brought to confusion who plot my hurt. 5 Let them be like chaff before the wind, and let the angel of the LORD chase them. 6 Let their way be dark and slippery, and let the angel of the LORD pursue them.” (Ps 35:4-6 NKJV)




SHARING 11/6/95

I will be launching you to share your testimony. You will be safe My love. You must overcome your shame and I will help you by sending you love letters. It will not be bitter, but better.


“In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let Me never be ashamed: deliver Me in thy righteousness.” (Ps 31:1 KJV)






In your past you have suffered deeply imbedded bullets. These were from the firing of another's will that caused you shame and loss of dignity. I will heal you through love.


“Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed. My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long? Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.” (Ps 6:2-4 KJV)






Where am I going, you ask. I AM moving towards the grand finale of bringing in My final harvest, - an explosion of souls through My supernatural touch. I have been training you underground with a long season of schooling. You have been sorely chaffed, cut and pruned by the opinions of man. This has caused you to feel shame and become weary. The enemy has wanted to take advantage with destruction and evil demise, but I come that you may have life and more abundantly. I only allow your pruning to cause you to grow even stronger branches, and have fruitful harvests. But rejoice, I AM now opening doors of favor for you with a green light to let you grow new branches of life and faith. Your training was necessary, My love. Now let us graft you into greater faith for greater works.


“But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.” (Matt 9:36-38 KJV)






Do not allow man's opinions of your prophetic giftings to despise My treasures. For you belong to Me and I have planted My Word in you. I do not need their permission to use you. Wash the shame away and trust Me in this.


“Quench not the Spirit. 20 Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.” (1 Thess 5:19-21 KJV)





I have made you My transparent vessel, so that My children will see the beauty of genuine realness. I have made you bold, able to publish your life, and come out of hiding so that others may see your worship of Me through it and be set free to be transparent themselves. The beauty of your transparency goes deeper than the mind, straight into the heart. Thank you dear one, it is true worship as you lay yourself bare without shame before My Presence. Always remember that you are at complete liberty to share or withhold anything you choose. To share out of your private life is a sacrifice and I receive it as a sweet smelling savor.


“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” (1 Cor 13:12 KJV)






The slate of your life is wiped clean. My blood covers you and you need not look back. The enemy would forever hold your past before you. But I say, “Wiped clean by My blood!” I shed it for you so that you could come into My Presence without shame, and with My covering. Stand before Me filled with bold joy, for I give new life. Rejoice without wavering for I AM faithful.



“Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; he is faithful that promised.” (Hebrews 10:19-23)






Child, why the shame? Let the past go. You are lamenting and crestfallen for no reason. I have given you a countdown to new beginnings. I am launching you into this new place and yet you suffer shame? Get behind me satan. For he has no place in this new beginning. I have given you a safe haven, and protection from him who puffs at you. Change your perspective. No more despair.


Ready for a plunge? Another chapter is yet to be written. You have waited so long. Rise up My Beloved, come to Me. For I give you a promised double portion of grace and you indeed shall be protected as in the days of Goshen.


“And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days: They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.” (Ex 10:22-23 KJV)






For many years you have been held in confinement. Your need to be healed, to be loosed from shame, to come out of prison. I have held you there with the greatest of care and watchful eye. I have met all your needs and in the process I have trained you to be able to walk in a great promotion. For My Spirit is coming! So much to come, when My Spirit flows up river. It will break the hindrances held for so long, and will travel up through the roughest of waters to reach you.


In that day, I would not have you earn your pay by the sweat of your brow. For you are My chosen vessel, prepared in the fiery furnace. I would have you do nothing that causes sweat. You have sweat enough!


I know you are waiting for a place prepared for you. Do not fear, for I shall indeed link you with other kindred hearts. You shall stand together against trouble and easily divide the load. It shall be so much easier than the road you have traveled. For you have been My sacrifice in order that you could come into this new promotion of divine rule. I shall give you rest with the cloud of My Presence. I shall give you the ease of My spoken Word. It contains the keys of authority that will unlock the doors to the hearts of man, and it will bind all resistance from hindering their movement towards Me. In that day, you shall have many rewards and honor for all that you have suffered. In that day, you shall look back upon the pain and say, “Yes Lord, it was worth it!”


“Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him.” (Ps 105:19)





MOVE ON 8/9/00

As a team of trail blazers, you have stood on the front lines battling the obstacles, one step at a time. Enduring shame, desolation and death on every side, you have faithfully plowed a trail behind you. This has been a humble, lowly and less than honorable place. And yet in spite of all that you see, hear, think and feel about yourself, your calling, your intercession, I declare like thunder in the clouds. MOVE ON! For I pierce your way with clarity and with the lighting rods of My power, I will break the mountains before you and make them plains. I have commissioned you to move on and come into new land, flowing with milk and honey. I promise you, you shall not be disappointed.


“Then at last the LORD said to Me, `You have been wandering around in this hill country long enough; turn northward.” (Deut 2:2-3 NLT)






Deep within your roots is a beautiful garden pool, fed by an underground spring. The devil has dumped upon it and covered it with mud and shame. He has slimed you with many layers of filth and has wanted to muddy your waters. But it is only on the exterior, My love. For if you dig beneath the surface, you will see that I placed My covering over you when I chose you as My own. Within your belly flows fountains of crisp spring water, never to run dry. As we peel away your layers of shame, you will find deliverance from these issues and one day you shall once again know an open heaven as an answer to your prayers.


“Instead of shame and dishonor, you will inherit a double portion of prosperity and everlasting joy. "For I, the LORD, love justice. I hate robbery and wrongdoing. I will faithfully reward my people for their suffering and make an everlasting covenant with them.” (Isa 61:6-8 NLT)






How great is your shame and disappointment! And how far you say you have fallen. And yet I loved you before and I love you now, knowing full well your strengths and weaknesses. It is not Me that disqualifies you, but your own self analysis. In My eyes you have not fallen, for your faith has not failed you. I allowed this sifting so that you would learn to not trust in yourself. No flesh will glory in My Presence, when I send them My signs and wonders. My messengers will know that it is I Who holds them up and keeps them from falling back into their old nature.


So feed My sheep Peter. I have called you but it is from your own heart that you decide whether you are willing. I ask you to give out of what you have, not what you do not have. I know you love Me, will you feed My sheep?


“He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?" Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, "Do you love Me?" And he said to Him, "Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You." Jesus said to him, "Feed My sheep.” (John 21:17 NKJV)






Precious One, it is time to harvest the pain that has been deeply embedded in your life for a long time. I will uproot a family tree of sickness that has been passed down through generations. I have kept you through the pain, and now it is time to uproot it. I know it is difficult for you and it is not easy to find the way to truth. I will bring you to the door of revelation and you will know that I Am leading you. Trust Me through this process to continue to keep you, to heal you and recover all that you have lost.


Your life of correction has given root to a bitter tree and it is now clouding your perspective of Who I AM, how I feel about you and how you feel about yourself. Always remember that there is no shame on you. Let go of condemnation from making mistakes and not measuring up. The poison of such is turning upon yourself to become your own worst enemy. Know that you are completely blameless before Me, as you stand in the Presence of heaven. I have given you clean hands and a pure heart. You are holy and acceptable in My sight. I see no spot in you.


“Yet now he has brought you back as his friends. He has done this through his death on the cross in his own human body. As a result, he has brought you into the very presence of God, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault. 23 But you must continue to believe this truth and stand in it firmly. Don't drift away from the assurance you received when you heard the Good News.” (Col 1:22-23 NLT)






The enemy would have you believe that you are making many mistakes and are falling. But I have promised that I will raise you up to be My faithful priest and I will build a stable house. You shall walk in My favor and anointing forever.


The enemy dumped upon you much shame and then I stripped you of all the mud and layers. The stripping process left you feeling shaken and in misery. I feel your tears, My love, and I will repay everything the enemy has done to you, with great reward. I have used this stripping to consume into ashes what does not belong to Me. But I have left you with a testimony that will defeat your enemies. You will live to know the day when your test-i-mony will turn to a blessed-a-mony. I promise.


“Then I will raise up for Myself a faithful priest who shall do according to what is in My heart and in My mind. I will build him a sure house, and he shall walk before My anointed forever.” (1 Sam 2:35 NKJV)






Thank you dear one for giving so graciously to others what I give to you. You share your testimony, your relationship with Me, and your life in a transparent manner due to the nature of My calling upon your life and I would have you no other way than to be genuine and real. I know this has cost you your privacy and want to reassure you. Please do not feel ashamed. What you perceive as naked weakness and vulnerability is being transformed into the beauty of My glory and honor. I clothe you in the beauty of My Word, and it shall go forth with My power and blessing.


“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” (Heb 4:12-13 KJV)






There was a time in your life when your motives were misunderstood, misaligned and you were falsely accused. I am so sorry for your pain. And yet if you had your way, you would still be in that place today if I had not put a stop to it and set you free to move on. I use everything in your life for your training and perfection. And this experience was not without My permission. Although painful, I allowed it for your good.


There will come a day when your past will cross roads with your present and you will be reminded of the pain and the shame. I will show you that I have redeemed that time of dishonor on your behalf. I went behind you and defended you in the places where you could not defend yourself and those things that were misunderstood were put to rest. And you, My love, walked on and I gave you a new place and with honor. For I alone hold the reputations of men and I use all for My purpose. Let go of the shame and keep your eyes on Me, the One Who adores every part of you. Always live for an audience of One, and My clapping shall thunder the heavens on your behalf.


"Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor?” (Rom 9:21 NKJV)





SHAME NO MORE 11/22/02

Many times I have spoken to you to let go of the shame. You may not even understand this. I see it in your wincing, in your downcast eyes, in your looking away, in your doubts and inability to receive My complete and everlasting love. Dear One, you are most precious to Me and it sorrows My heart to see the cloak of shame that veils your eyes from My face. If you were to truly understand the work at the cross and the covering of My dear Son's blood, then you would receive that I see you only through the eyes of love. Now come to Me unhindered and look straight into My face. For there you will see Me smiling with unconditional love.


“…looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God…” (Heb 12:2 NKJV)






I have covered your sins My child. I cover your blights. I cover your weakness. I cover your tendencies. I cover your failures and rejections. I cover every part of you… always with My love. That shame that causes you to continue to wince, has got to go. Lift your face to Me and look into the smiling eyes of My love. See how proud I AM of you, My overcomer, who has born so much pain and so much sorrow. I am so proud of you, My very own. Let Me bathe you in the warmth of My loving smile and let it penetrate all the layers of shame, right down into your heart. Let the truth of My love cleanse the shame and rinse you from its sting forever.


“You will be called priests of the LORD, ministers of our God. You will be fed with the treasures of the nations and will boast in their riches. Instead of shame and dishonor, you will inherit a double portion of prosperity and everlasting joy.” (Isa 61:6-7 NLT)





My people have been under years of restraint. Timidity, shame, regret, insecurity, intimidation, domination, controlled, wounded. It's time for Jubilee freedom that can only come through great and mighty works of My Spirit in their lives. My Presence shall draw nearer to them than ever before and My Spirit will break off the restraints. I will lead them out of their own personal captivities and they shall have testimonies of restored lives. Then I will use them to help others. I AM preparing to pop the lid off My people and all that has held them in captivity shall burst away as they spring forth in a new release.


“Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.” (Zech 4:7 KJV)






A portion of My children do not understand the lengthy season of circumcision that I sent with the winds of change. They have experienced winds so violent that most perceived this as demonic. Demonic yes, but I allowed these whirlwinds so that they would leave their carnality behind and forever walk away from old ways, old flesh patterns and learn to walk in obedience and holiness. I will have a pure and spotless bride and she will make herself ready. Part of this preparation is learning obedience to holy living. My people perish through the shame of reproach. The blasphemous one rails night and day and this stirs the whirlwinds into greater storms because My people tarry as they feed upon the world. Come out from her and be separate and leave the storms behind. Time is short and I have great bounty in store ready to be dispersed. I AM calling Mine own to turn a corner and leave the shackles of carnality behind. In turn, I will roll away the wind and the shame, the reproach and blasphemy.


“And the Lord said to Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you. So the name of the place is called Gilgal [rolling] to this day.” (Josh 5:9 AMP)






Let the shame go. Sweet one, I hear you fuss over the gifts I have given you. You concern yourself too much with what you think your calling is supposed to look like. Who told you these things? It is I Who conceives, grow and brings to birth each man's calling. This has nothing to do with the affairs of men and their opinions of what a calling is supposed to look like. Yes there are patterns to certain gifts, but even they are individually unique as to each person. Relax and accept that the portion I have given you is exactly what you need to daily grow in your calling and daily fulfill all that I have called you to do. You do not need tomorrow's portion until tomorrow. Rest dear one, rest in Me.


I have given you an allowance of daily hearing that you may grow and some day share My Words with others. You shall speak them in prayer, in testimony, in sermons, in writings, in prophesying and in declarations. As you learn, you shall also teach others. My Words are piling up in your life and I AM keeping them warm and ready for birthing in My perfect timing.


“But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift. Therefore He says: "When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men." (Eph 4:7-8 NKJV)






Broken and disassembled, My body is scattered in parts and pieces all over the world. Even when in a crowd, they are suffering the coldness of isolation. Broken, alone, and separated, the comfort of fellowship has become a rarity. How it grieves My heart to see My loved ones in such disarray!


Although the enemy has desired to plunder My people through isolation, I have used the wilderness seasons to raise My eagles to search for food and train them to climb higher. Birds fly in flocks and eagles fly alone. This is the way for training leaders. I have raised a generation of leaders, who will nurture the great harvest of newborns. And how they will love their children! The chatter, the activity, the questions, the hungry hearts will be like a balm to My isolated ones who have suffered years of detachment. The shame of those years will melt away within the deep pools of My children's hugs. Lost confidence and joy shall return as I reassemble My body back together again. United in kindred hearts of loving appreciation, I shall remove the stumbling blocks and bring My own into one big family.


Heb 10:24-25 NKJV

And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.






Precious one, yes it is Me. Sometimes I bring your past before you for a specific purpose. You may think you are repeating old cycles of old pain. It may concern you that you will fall into the ditch and never rise again. Yes, you have circled this journey before, as even your parents did before you. Yet, listen to My voice. THIS time it is different. I have brought you to this door for a specific purpose. It is time to cut off the old shame, the old pain, the old mind-sets, the old habits, the old misunderstandings, the old lies and be RELEASED. You know this is behind you and I have already planted seeds in you that are a different flavor. Do not allow the enemy to steal your new hopes and transformations for old lies. Allow Me to take you through this process of inner healing and wash the layers of your past in the blood of My Son, the One Who took the stripes on His back so that you would be healed.


Isa 53:5 KJV

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.






I AM doing a work among you that will help wash off the layers of shame. I have earnestly waited for you and will work with you until our union is complete. This shame that stands between us, as hidden and lurking veils, has to go. I will do whatever is necessary to remove every layer until you are squeaky clean. Always know there is no shame in love. Learn to relax in My love and you will no longer feel shame. It is that simple.


Cooperate with Me that as I draw the wounds of shame to the surface, you will see the truth of who you are in Me, and release the shame and let Me eradicate it from your life forever.


Isa 61:6-7 NKJV

But you shall be named the priests of the LORD, they shall call you the servants of our God. You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory you shall boast. Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double; Everlasting joy shall be theirs.






How I groan over so many of My children who are wrestling over addictions! I AM wanting their conscience and temperance to grow in overcoming these things, so that they will be able to say no to their flesh and no to the demonic powers.


It moves Me with such compassion when I see their transparency to confess with humble hearts their sins and failings. I see them courageously get up after falling and then see them facing with determination the desire to overcome. I witness their teachableness for answers, and their tenacity to hang onto Me in-spite-of their flesh and demonic opposition.


They are so slimed with shame after having reaped the demonic discipline of what they sow. However, beneath the sin of addiction, in the face of everything, they are revealing a pure heart when they show such willingness to move on in obedience. They search Me to find the help to overcome these things. I love them so much and AM moved by their tenacity to hang on. I grant them My grace to overcome.


Gal 6:7-9 NKJV

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.


1 Peter 1:14-15 NLT

Obey God because you are his children. Don't slip back into your old ways of doing evil; you didn't know any better then. But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God -- who chose you to be his children -- is holy.






Within every human being is a wounded child that needs to be healed. Beloved one, when you receive a wound, you stop growing in that place in your life. Life grows up around you, and you keep growing into maturity with wings to fly in every area except where you were wounded. I AM wanting to raise up the tabernacle which has fallen inside of you and bring you into manhood. In order to do that, I want to heal the child places in your life which are so deeply disabling.


Old wounds are like knot holes in a tree. There is a circular pattern around the wound, and the closer you get to the knot hole, the more warped and perverted and out of shape it is. When people get near your wounded areas, you wince. The more tender those wounds are, the stronger you wince. The farther away they move from those places, the more normal and well balanced and stable you are... able to stand and function in an adult society with adult pressures.


It is important that You allow me to touch you in these wounded areas and bring healing. I want to flow through you and use you as My vessel. But, I do not want you to minister through your wounds before you are healed. This would cause you to spill poison onto others and also pervert truths and spill out bitterness, unforgiveness and self pity etc.


Until your wounds are healed, there will remain that unstable place. You have held up all these years with scar tissue and hardened places. My Spirit is spotlighting these places and bringing them into focus so I can wash them and draw out the poison. I AM taking the heart of stone and replacing it with a heart of flesh.


The closer you come to the anointing, the more I will approach these tender and sore places. The process of washing, although humbling, and makes you feel like a child and insecure, it is not something to be ashamed of, it simply is a part of the process. As you are willing to become vulnerable before Me in the holy place, I will allow this healing to take place in the secret places behind closed doors. I will supernaturally keep you, so that when you return to do your daily tasks, I will give you the ability to function without transparent pain.


2 Cor 3:2-3 NKJV

You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men; clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.






How precious are the feet of My Beloved Bride! Though she limps with suffering, pain and shame, she knows in Whom she puts her trust. She bravely trusts Me for each and every step, and leans upon her Beloved King. How little she understands the depths of My eternal love for her! How I long to plant My lips upon her feet and tenderly kiss them stable again! Rise up My wife, My Beloved Bride! Rise up and stand, for Your King has called you into His chambers. Rise up, My love, My fair one and come away with Me.


Song 7:1 NKJV

How beautiful are your feet in sandals, O prince's daughter!


Ps 18:33 NKJV

He makes my feet like the feet of deer, and sets me on my high places.


Song 2:8-10 NKJV

The voice of my beloved! Behold, he comes leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills. My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag. Behold, he stands behind our wall; He is looking through the windows, gazing through the lattice. My beloved spoke, and said to me: “Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.






There are seasons when I have raised you with tough love as well as raised you with comforting love. At this point, there is a balancing scale in My hands, and I AM weighing issues I have spoken about to you for years. Precious, I love you. I want you to walk in freedom. I want you to walk in power and grace. I know how deeply your soul hurts when you don't measure up because of making deliberate choices that take you into captivity. I love you and it hurts Me when you are hurting.


I don't want you wallowing in self pity. I don't want you burning with shame. I don't want you wincing in condemnation. I want you to grow up and mature the child inside of you that runs from obedience and turns to the world for escape. This balance scale is weighing heavily on My heart. The hand that holds these scales of tough love and comforting love is called Grace. I offer you My abiding grace, but I AM asking you only one question. I need you to be WILLING. That is all. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and be willing to listen to Me and obey. I will help you face these things, but you must be willing to do your part. We will partner together and face this mountain. How can two walk together unless they agree?


1 Cor 4:21 AMP

Now which do you prefer? Shall I come to you with a rod of correction, or with love and in a spirit of gentleness?


Ps 119:73-77 NLT

You made me; you created me. Now give me the sense to follow your commands. May all who fear you find in me a cause for joy, for I have put my hope in your word. I know, O LORD, that your decisions are fair; you disciplined me because I needed it . Now let your unfailing love comfort me, just as you promised me, your servant. Surround me with your tender mercies so I may live,

for your law is my delight.


Amos 3:3 NKJV

Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?







Beloved, I AM NOT angry with you. Nothing could be further from the truth. Yes I know it hurts to have the blade cut down the soul giants in your life. It hurts to separate the good things in your heart, from the weeds. It hurts to let go of what is not healthy, edifying and fruitful. Yield it up, dear one. When you feel the pressure mount and see the tare bearing fruit, yield it up so that it does not go to seed. We will harvest the tares and weeds and separate them from you forever.


I understand when you see these things manifest, that you feel blackened and dirty like the Shulamite who lost her ivory skin from harvesting the fields under the blazing sun. I understand your shame and that you feel unstable and a mess. Please, always remember that you belong to Me and I love you dearly. I have a strong hold on you and you are more than stable in My loving care. I know you better than you know yourself and have loved you and watched over you while these same seeds have been dormant, then became active and began growing inside of you. I have so much mercy and forgiveness for you. I want all things in your life to bear My image. Precious one, I point no condemnation towards you at all.


When you offer the tares up to Me to be separated from your soul, be encouraged that what you overcome will not be passed on to your children. And you will have ended a cycle of generational issues that have been passed down through the blood lines. Rejoice when the sickle comes, because it means VICTORIOUS OVERCOMING. Be blessed with no condemnation! Rejoice with heaven as you offer these up into the light.


Song 1:5-6 NLT

"I am dark and beautiful, O women of Jerusalem, tanned as the dark tents of Kedar. Yes, even as the tents of Solomon! "Don't look down on me, you fair city girls, just because my complexion is so dark. The sun has burned my skin. My brothers were angry with me and sent me out to tend the vineyards in the hot sun. Now see what it has done to me!







Ask Me now for promotion, dear ones. Yes you have worked hard and accomplished so very much. The strings of your past where you have suffered loss and shame are snares. As you are reminded of them, let them be memorial stones of your lessons learned then give all that you are working towards back to Me. Sometimes you wonder of the road you have taken and have felt blind not knowing your way. I tell you FULL BLOOM AHEAD. You are on the right road, your road is straight ahead.


Die to your pursuits and hopes and let Me be the One Who sustains you, the work of your hands and the measurement of success. If you give it to Me, My peace will hold you and settle you of My Sovereign plan in your life. ALL things work together for good, even the losses in your life. It is My desire to bring you to full bloom - you and all that you do for My kingdom; rich in good fruit to benefit many.


Your works have not gone unnoticed, you work hard and it is evidence of your faith. Like Abraham, the fruit of your life shall be like the sands of the sea. The ship that you are on, called Leader-ship, is a great boat carrying many in need of passage. The seas are rough at times and storms are in the air. But My mercy will travel with you and all aboard. My 7 Spirits shall go with you in full measure. No good thing will I withhold from you, My favored one. Full bloom ahead.


Isa 35:6 NKJV

And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; 2 It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, even with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, the excellence of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the LORD, the excellency of our God. 3 Strengthen the weak hands, And make firm the feeble knees. 4 Say to those who are fearful-hearted, "Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God; He will come and save you." 5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 6 Then the lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the dumb sing.






There are some of My children who are easily dismayed and have chosen to stay in the outskirts of My love, because of suffering deep shame. They are willing to hear Me through hand-me-down connections because the intimacy of My Presence brings their buried pain to the surface. To face it all is too hot, they would rather stay numb and in a cold place, away from My direct touch.


They believe their failures are too great to deserve such an intimate place in My Presence. They do not know the sweetness of having a wound lanced with My personal Word, the poison extracted, and then delivered in one impacting moment. They dont know the relief of such a time before My face. What took years to embitter can be extracted in one powerful exchange of My loving embrace. Come Peter, I know you love Me. Do not hold back. Swim speedily to your loving Surgeon and I shall extract your deep sufferings of shame and bring your calling to life again.


Deut 5:27 NKJV

"So it was, when you heard the voice from the midst of the darkness, while the mountain was burning with fire, that you came near to me, all the heads of your tribes and your elders. And you said: 'Surely the LORD our God has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice from the midst of the fire. We have seen this day that God speaks with man; yet he still lives. Now therefore, why should we die? For this great fire will consume us; if we hear the voice of the LORD our God anymore, then we shall die. For who is there of all flesh who has heard the voice of the living God speaking from the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived? You go near and hear all that the LORD our God may say, and tell us all that the LORD our God says to you, and we will hear and do it.'


John 21:7 NKJV

Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord !" Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment (for he had removed it), and plunged into the sea.
