[A Glimpse into the Father's Heart]


HEARD [3/06/04]: The gifts and calling are irrevocable.

VISION: I was trying on some shoes.

HEARD: Comfortable. We'll walk together. Irrevocable. That's why you need a holy foundation.

Romans 11:29 KJV

For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance {278 Strongs}.


ametameletos (am-et-am-el'-ay-tos); from NT:1 (as a negative particle) and a presumed derivative of NT:3338; irrevocable: KJV - without repentance, not to be repented of.


For several years I had a difficult time resolving the supernatural gifts given through men and overcoming my attitude towards the compromise in which they lived. This was a large stumbling block to me. Over and over again I would take these issues back to the Lord and pray. It distressed me greatly that He would give His gifts and accountability to people who would compromise His holiness.

My journey progressed downward from a spiral of questions, doubt, unbelief, mistrust and skepticism. The Lord dealt with me about my sinful attitudes and brought me to personal repentance for judging and then on to intercession over what did not line up with His Word by way of covering sins and giving honor to those whom He had called.

After graduating from that miserable time in my life, I can clearly see in hindsight that He was delivering me from idolatry. That was an eye opener…


I was naive to the supernatural and had placed those who exercised supernatural gifts upon a pedestal. The fact that their gifting did not at times measure up to their conduct was a stumbling block to me. Also, several times I made choices against what the Lord had taught me and followed what these gifted ones recommended. I was spanked and rebuked by the Lord, and at first I could hardly believe it was Him. I thought it must be the enemy wanting to take away my freedom! Finally, after a few times of going around the barn, I repented, realizing it was the Lord. Then, just like a naughty child, I was angry that He rebuked me, when I was not experiencing these supernatural gifts, yet others were enjoying them and getting away with matters of compromise. It did not seem fair.

I had the common misconception that giftedness means God's approval of a vessel.

In spite of all of these issues, the Lord was more interested in harvesting the idolatrous weed in my heart. I had placed gifted men's opinions over my own conscience and obedience to Him. After I learned my lesson enough times to make a lasting impression, I grew to understand that these gifted ones are just people given free will. Disappointed but wiser, I moved on into intercession to cover and forgive what did not measure up to Who He is.



Last night I wrote the above section and took it to prayer when I went to bed. The following was the Lord's response to this dilemma of supernatural giftedness and compromise.

HEARD [3/06/04]: In answer to your prayers. Resolution. Some will betray Me. Some will compromise and some will be faithful all the way. Even so.

QUICKENED MEMORY: At the moment of hearing "even so," the Holy Spirit brought the disciples to my memory. Judas the betrayer was chosen by Jesus to be among the disciples, Peter denied Him 3 times and John the beloved served Him faithfully all the way.

HEARD: It's been that way from the beginning.

QUICKENED MEMORY: Upon the hearing the word "beginning" I received a flash of revelation that Lucifer had betrayed Him in heaven, and also the sons of God compromised and married daughters of men creating the giants.

Isa 14:12-15 NKJV

"How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: 'I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.' Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit.

Gen 6:1-7 NKJV

Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. And the LORD said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years." There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.


He had imparted a tiny portion of His heart. I was very sad and sobered to know that the Father continues to be betrayed, and that His goodness and holy attributes continue to be compromised and misaligned. Those few that are faithful... He calls friends.

I was brought to tears to understand what it means to His own heart when we serve Him out of volunteer love. As I was hit by this truth, I heard Him whisper, My friend…


+ You have ascended on high, You have led captivity captive; You have received gifts among men, even from the rebellious, that the LORD God might dwell there. (Psalm 68:18 NKJV)

+ For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. (Romans 11:29 KJV)

+ Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!' (Matthew 7:22 NKJV)




{Words to Ponder are summaries of His quickened Words}


Yes My love, and now you know. I have given you a glimpse into My own heart. How I long for friends, just like you do! How I long to be one with those, just as you call them - kindred hearts. How it melts My heart when I see them suffer because they love Me and continue to choose to love Me no matter what.

I AM all powerful, all knowing and always present. I always was and always will be. And yet only you can give Me volunteer love. And now you know.

John 15:13 NKJV

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends.
