FOR A PURPOSE
January 1 of this year, I saw 2 angels. The first
appeared in front of me and it was very startling. He
was dressed as a cowboy and was posed in front of me as
though in a tug of war over what I was holding on to. He
jerked it once as though to get my attention. It was not
a violent jerk, but his appearance and act certainly got
saw the second one and she was a very beautiful and
gracious angel, with a great amount of love in her eyes.
She was standing between 2 double doors in the meat
department of a grocery store. I heard the Lord tell me
that He had given me Grace. I understood that the name
of this angel was Grace and she was assigned to help me
let go of what I was holding on to.
several months I pondered the appearance of these angels
and asked the Lord why they had been sent to me. He
answered my prayer and made it quite clear. I had been
wrestling with Him over a matter in my life and had been
for a long time. My time had run out, and He was to win
this tug of war. My wrestling became painful until I let
go. On the opposite side of this, He clearly let me know
that His fierce love for me was why His hand suddenly
felt heavy. He was concerned about my future, and knew
that what I was holding on to would keep me from the
full joy of what He had planned for me.
me a Word to Ponder regarding this for the body of
Christ. I am starting to see these angels being sent to
people so I am releasing this Word to Ponder now. May
the Lord be gracious to us all and help us yield to the
strong meat of being trained.
PONDER: LASSOED FOR A PURPOSE 1/1/02
ones, for years you have cried for the prodigal children
to come home, and cried to Me to shorten their ropes to
keep them from running. I have heard your cries. And now
angels dressed like cowboys have been sent on
assignment. I have commissioned them with anointed
lassos to not only bring home the prodigals who have
spent their lives in the world, but I have shortened the
rope for all of you. There are areas in your own lives
where you have run from Me, and I have given you a lot
of leeway. Throughout the years you have felt My slight
tug of pressure and have not yielded. I have allowed you
slack, even in your running, in places where you have
striven with Me, run from Me, or dodged issues in which
I have knocked upon your doors.
without notice, there will come the sudden jerk of a
lasso, as a cowboy does in hot pursuit of a wild runaway
horse. The faster you run, the stronger you resist, you
will find it to be the exact measure in which you feel
the sudden and sharp jerk. This does not have to be a
tug-of-war between us. Understand, that to the exact
degree you wrestle with My will, will be the exact
degree you shall feel the jerk. It will not be easy for
you to kick against the pricks. You shall suddenly and
quickly reap what you sow. This will help you discern
areas where I am getting your attention, because your
conduct will be given immediate feedback.
a willing horse is reigned in by the slight tug at the
reins, and finally a slight pressure at his side. As you
humble yourselves, listen and comply, you shall feel My
loving tug instead of the violent jerk of a lasso. And
as you change your mindsets, your opinions and repent
from your running, I will send you a second angel
called, Grace. She will give you grace to chew the
strong meat in your training process and this will help
you understand what I am spotlighting in your lives.
will help bring you into balance in areas where you are
out of control. In your humility and willingness to come
into alignment with My Word, you shall know My grace in
your lives in greater measures than you have ever known.
You will feel My loving embrace as a warm hedging, where
you shall know your boundaries and feel the great
comfort of abiding in such a way that brings pleasure to
My heart. As My Word says, I have hedged you behind and
before, and laid My hand upon you.
have hedged me behind and before, And laid Your hand
upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is
high, I cannot attain it. 7 Where can I go from Your
Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?" (Ps
I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they
shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters,
and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from
every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks." (Jer
COMMENTS: I had several ask if angels can be female.
Here is are some scriptures.
5:9-11 NKJV Then I raised my eyes and looked, and there
were two women, coming with the wind in their wings; for
they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they
lifted up the basket between earth and heaven. So I said
to the angel who talked with me, "Where are they
carrying the basket?" And he said to me, "To build a
house for it in the land of Shinar; when it is ready,
the basket will be set there on its base."
22:30 AMP For in the resurrected state neither do [men]
marry nor are [women] given in marriage, but they are
like the angels in heaven.
