7/27/07  WHO DO YOU SAY I AM? 

 

Teaching FOCUS ON GODíS GOODNESS

 

Luke 11:34-36 NKJV

The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness.  Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness.  If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, the whole body will be full of light, as when the bright shining of a lamp gives you light." 

 

This week I had a stirring Word about Who God is and then a warning from the Lord to keep our focus on His goodness and not on the increasing darkness in the world.  Today I received an email from a person who had a dream about destruction and wanted to post it.  I am well aware that without Godís intervention, our world and nation(s) are ready to fall over the cliff and that the world suffers increasing tribulations.  Our hope and help is in God and repenting of our wicked ways, being separate from the worldís carnality and then God will heal our land(s).

 

When writing posts, I try to keep them aligned with the purpose of the ministry at the QW.  I am commissioned to model how God speaks to His people, and in the process of doing that, it also happens to be prophetic and helpful.  Yes the world grows darker, but those who know the Lord shall arise in His glory.  It is a matter of perspective and what one is feeding upon and Who we think God is.

 

Sometimes people submit posts that are not aligned to support the purpose of the forum.  Or sometimes people post things that are outside of my metron to discern or back as authentic prophesy.  It is not that I judged them as demonic, but sometimes I feel it is outside of my metron to make the decision and so I dont approve the post since I am accountable to what goes on at the QW.  My last name is WARNer.  I do give warnings, but when I do they are based upon the true nature and character of Godís goodness and love, not wrath, anger and destruction.  Jesus came to give abundant life, not to kill.

 

I know a prodigal whose faith is like the tiny mustard seed, daily struggling with wavering, doubt and fear.  He spends much time scouring the internet for information on bad destructive prophesies and subjects that breed fear.   This person is afraid to die because of so much doubt about salvation.  The bottom line is that what we eat nurtures our fruit.  After much compassionate prayer and seeking the Lord over this personís faith vs fear struggles, the Lord gave me the following rhema.


RHEMA 7/23/07  WARNING: WHERE IS YOUR FOCUS?

HEARDStrength training.  Balance. 

PIX:  I saw the head of a pencil balancing on its tip on the tip of my prophetic finger. 

 

[Lord what do You want me to do about {name}?]

 

HEARDHelp him find answers he is looking for in scripture.   Iím afraid Iím going to miss it.  Graduate student.  Cigarette.  [cigarettes represent carnality.]  Courage.  We have our outside prayer and inside prayer going up.  I want you to listen.  Tell them:

 

OPENED EARS:  After the phrase, ďTell themĒ, immediately I heard a door bell ring.  It was somewhat alarming to my ears to hear it.

 

HEARD:  Tell them if My people.  What are you looking at?  Shelter.

 

VISION: I was in some kind of a school and saw a large auditorium with 2 grand pianos.  It was a place of intercession where people prayed.  Then I saw a remnant of intercessors and prophets who had left their places of prayer and were in a small storage building and their focus was on surviving during a very dark and demonic time.  I could hear their conversations that were a dark focus.  I could see that the more they spoke on those things, their faith was growing weaker and their words were actually feeding and drawing hordes of dark creatures to gather around the building.  The more they spoke of their fears, the more hideous creatures germinated and gathered.

 

Isa 60:2-5 KJV
For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.  Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.


 

WORD TO PONDER:  WHO DO YOU SAY I AM?  7/23/07

When I labored and created the earth, I looked over everything that I made and saw that it was very GOOD.  I also gave gifts of creativity so that mankind could understand that what is created comes out of the heart of the person creating. The creation is a message that in someway represents the person behind it. What I created was GOOD, because I AM GOOD. 

 

Live in such a way that men will see your GOOD works and glorify Me, for a GOOD man will bring forth GOOD things from the GOOD treasure stored in his heart.  When I walked the earth, I went about doing GOOD and healing all who were oppressed by the devil.  I give GOOD gifts to My children and I do not change; I AM GOOD.  Every GOOD and perfect gift comes from Me.  I AM and always will be, the GOOD Shepherd.

 

Remove your focus off the devil.  Overcome evil with GOOD.  Abhor evil and cling to GOOD.  Never repay evil with evil.  But instead pursue GOOD.  If you want to see GOOD days, refrain from speaking evil.  Turn away from evil and do GOOD.  Beloved, all in the world is very simple.  You have only 2 choices: GOOD or evil, coming from the kingdoms of light or darkness.  You need to make your choice and stick to it until the end, knowing Who I AM and Who keeps you.  Separate and discern what you are listening to.  You need to separate the mixture and choose the GOOD part.  A GOOD report makes My body healthy for I know the plans I have for you, to give you a future and a hope.

 

Ex 33:12,13,18,19, 34:5-7 NKJV

Then Moses said to the LORD, "See, You say to me, 'Bring up this people.' But You have not let me know whom You will send with me. Yet You have said, 'I know you by name, and you have also found grace in My sight.' 13 Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight... 18 And he said, "Please, show me Your glory." 19 Then He said, "I will make all My GOODness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before you. ... 34:5 Now the LORD descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. 6 And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in GOODness and truth, 7 keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children to the third and the fourth generation."

GOD TOLD MOSES WHO HE IS

 

Ex 33:12,13,18,19, 34:5-7 NKJV

Then Moses said to the LORD, "See, You say to me, 'Bring up this people.' But You have not let me know whom You will send with me. Yet You have said, 'I know you by name, and you have also found grace in My sight.' 13 Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight... 18 And he said, "Please, show me Your glory." 19 Then He said, "I will make all My GOODness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before you. ... 34:5 Now the LORD descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. 6 And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in GOODness and truth, 7 keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children to the third and the fourth generation."

 

Gen 1:31 NKJV

Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very GOOD.

 

Luke 18:18-20  NKJV

Now a certain ruler asked Him, saying, "GOOD Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"  So Jesus said to him, "Why do you call Me GOOD ? No one is GOOD but One, that is, God.

 

Luke 11:11-13 NKJV

If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish?  12 Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?  13 If you then, being evil, know how to give GOOD gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!" 

 

James 1:17-18 NKJV

Every GOOD gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

THE ASSIGNMENT OF JESUS

 

John 17:4-6  NKJV

I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.  5 And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.   "I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world.

 

John 17:6 AMP

 I have manifested Your Name [I have revealed Your very Self, Your real Self] to the people whom You have given Me out of the world.

 

WHY WAS IT IMPORTANT THAT HE MANIFEST GODíS NAME?  BECAUSE BACK IN THE CONVERSATION WITH MOSES, GOD SAID NO MAN CAN SEE THE FATHER AND LIVE.

 

John 14:6-11 NKJV

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.   "If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him." 

8 Philip said to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us."

9 Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, 'Show us the Father'?  10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.  11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him."

WHO DID JESUS SAY HE WAS

 

John 10:10-16  NKJV

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life , and that they may have it more abundantlyI am the GOOD shepherd. The GOOD shepherd gives His life for the sheep.  But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.  The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.  I am the GOOD shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.  As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. 

 

Acts 10:38-39 NKJV

... how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing GOOD and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

WHERE IS OUR FOCUS?

 

Luke 11:34-36 NKJV

The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is GOOD, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness.  35 Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness.  36 If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, the whole body will be full of light, as when the bright shining of a lamp gives you light." 

 

3 John 11 NKJV

Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is GOOD. He who does GOOD is of God, but he who does evil has not seen God.

SPEAKING GOOD REPORTS

 

Matt 12:35-37 NKJV

A GOOD man out of the GOOD treasure of his heart brings forth GOOD things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.  But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.  For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned." 

 

Prov 15:30 NKJV

The light of the eyes rejoices the heart, and a GOOD report makes the bones healthy.

I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the GOODness of the LORD in the land of the living.

 

1 Peter 3:10-11 NKJV

He who would love life and see GOOD days, let him refrain his tongue from evil,

And his lips from speaking deceit. Let him turn away from evil and do GOOD;

 

Jer 29:10-12 NLT

For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for GOOD and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

 

 

ANNAíS COMMENT:
This is totally God! It is written so very well.


SANDY:

Yes how I received it was SO precious.  I decided to create some large posters for the guest room knowing my grandchildren will lay in bed and read them and ponder them.  So I thought a long time and prayed about what is the bottom line messages I would want to impart to them.

The first one was this message, Who God is:  God is GOOD.  That is when the scriptures came alive and the whole thing came together in my heart as revelation.  It has revolutionized my perceptions and understandings of even why His wrath will destroy evil.  It is because He loves His kids SO much and wants nothing evil to touch them or harm them.  And because He is GOOD and wants nothing that is not good to coexist with Him.
